SKELETAL REMAINS, the boys from California will be unleashing yet another horrendous(in a good way) record this coming week on the 13th of April, via Century Media Records and Dark Descent Records. This will be the group’s third studio album, titled ‘Devouring Mortality‘, it is going to be an out and out assault on your sonic taste buds. With just a week remaining for the official release, SKELETAL REMAINS today has put out yet another nerve wracking single, “Parasitic Horrors” from the upcoming LP, with two tracks, the title track and music video, “Seismic Abyss” already out to the masses. Mixed & mastered by Dan Swanö (OPETH, BLOODBATH) and featuring impressive art by Dan Seagrave (ENTOMBED, SUFFOCATION, DISMEMBER), SKELETAL REMAINS promises to deliver a mind numbing, ear splitting crushing opus, while maintaining diversity and remaining true old school at heart. The album was tracked at Trench Studios (ABYSMAL DAWN, EXHUMED, HIRAX, etc.) in their home state, California.
Macedonia? Anyone? Betcha didn’t know any bands from the land of the great Alexander from Macedon! Alright let me do the honours of shedding some light on you in introducing one of the most creative and intriguing bands from Europe. Headbangers! introducing the ever so vibrant, and one of my all time favourites, ethno progressive(yeah, this too!) band CHROMATIC POINT,from the Balkan land of Macedonia(FYROM). “Chromatic” as they sound both musically and visually, the band incorporates every sense of the word and just goes on to show the frantic and seemingly chaotic nature of it’s sonic virtuosity. Just like the rapidly changing “flight of the bumblebee”. See what I did there? Yup, that was your daily dose of classical music puns!
All right let’s stop beating around the bush and get to the point. So, this Balkan progressive powerhouse has just unleashed their brand new music video, “Clockwork” today, which the band says has been taken off their “next studio material“. Let’s get dissecting the new chops!

In the meantime, the quintet just pulled the curtains off on a brand new single called “Mystery Light“. The track and the entire album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Edgar Chevallier at Lower Tones Place Studio. So today we bring to you the single stream which you can find attached below.
