JUDAS PRIEST are working on new album

JUDAS PRIEST members Rob Halford (vocals), Scott Travis (drums) and Richie Faulkner (guitar) spoke to Metal Hammer magazine about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band’s follow-up to “Firepower” album. Released in March 2018, “Firepower” was the second LP to feature Faulkner, who was selected to fill the void left by founding guitarist K.K. Downing following his exit in 2011.

“We started the year prepping the next JUDAS PRIEST metal masterpiece,” Rob said. “We had one massive writing session together and we’ve got an enormous amount of material stacked up, which is really thrilling after the glorious response we had to ‘Firepower’.”

“It’s gonna be good,” added Travis. Rob‘s always excited about new music, which is great, because he’s such a creative guy and when you are that creative, naturally you never rest on your laurels. You always want to do something new and get it out there.”

Faulkner talked in more detail about PRIEST‘s songwriting process, saying: “We compile all our ideas and get together and throw them in the pot and see what sticks, then see what lights up the room, see what Rob grabs hold of. It might be a riff that Rob really gets his teeth into that inspires a lyric or an intro, verse or chorus and suddenly you’ve got the nucleus of a song.”

NANOWAR OF STEEL reveals music video for new single “Uranus” feat. Michael Starr (STEEL PANTHER)

Kings of masterful Heavy Metal parodies NANOWAR OF STEEL bless the world with yet another spectacular music video for their new single “Uranus”, featuring none other than glam icon Michael Starr of the legendary STEEL PANTHER! Showing off their incredible choreography skills in shiny space suits, NANOWAR OF STEEL dance their way straight into your heart – and Uranus!

Michael Starr (STEEL PANTHER) says about the video for “Uranus”:
“This video will make your penis bigger with one view. The more times you view it, the bigger your penis will get. You’re welcome.
“Uranus” is a must watch video. It’s the only way to have your first eye orgasms. A fun video with a great story line. If you don’t like this song you must be deaf. If you don’t like this video you must be blind.”

Gatto Panceri 666 of NANOWAR OF STEEL adds about the video for “Uranus”:
“I know, this joke has been used and abused since 1781, from the very first day William Herschel discovered this planet. However, being a practicing astronomer and a professional idiot, I felt I had more right to use it as the subject of a song to be dignified with a Lady Gaga-level video (in all humbleness).
Perhaps it won’t be the most original pun ever, but one thing we can tell you for sure: this joke turned out to be the most expensive one we’ve ever told so far!”

SERPENTINE CREATION presents new video to the song “Ave Eva”.

Ave Eva. Everything that has beginning has an end too. We are born of sin and will die in vain. Eva is our beginning and the end, or the other way round. Doesn’t matter what way you read the title Ave Eva, you get the same meaning. Mesmerizing string and violent guitar wrangling in chaotic and furious manner, circling above, screaming and drowning in hell’s choir paying tribute to the only Goddess – the first and the last. Eva. Ave.

HECATE ENTHRONED unveils new song, the new album coming in January

UK Black/Death Metal Act HECATE ENTHRONED unveils new song “Temples That Breathe”. Long-awaited new album “Embrace of the Godless Aeon” coming January 25.

Last week, the UK-based Blackened Death Metal group HECATE ENTHRONED announced that “Embrace of the Godless Aeon”, their first album in five years (and their debut for new label partner M-Theory Audio), will be released on January 25, 2019. Now, the group has unveiled the first proper taste of the new record – “Temples That Breathe”, which can now be heard on all streaming platforms. A video for the song, which premiered via Decibel Magazine, can be seen:

Says bassist Dylan Hughes: “The track is a critique of the Catholic Church for centuries of abuse. It paints the church as a kind of virulent entity that spreads pain and horror, almost as if the church itself is alive – hence, temples that breathe. The stark, menacing stills and imagery within the video create this unnerving miasma, an uneasy feeling like cold, stale secular breath on the back of your neck. The song features epic and sweeping orchestrations, heavy aggressive riffing, breakneck speeds and harmonies with a brutal vocal delivery – all the elements you’d expect from HECATE ENTHRONED, which are contained in abundance on this album, making this track the perfect first release to give you a flavor of what’s to come.”

“Embrace Of The Godless Aeon” – which features cover artwork by Nestor Avalos (BLOODBATH, ROTTING CHRIST, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER), as seen above – can be pre-ordered now on CD and red splatter vinyl at m-theoryaudio.com/store. A limited-edition deluxe box set that includes exclusive purple vinyl and cassette editions of the album, a signed photo card and other collectibles is also available. Digital pre-orders on Bandcamp and other platforms include “Temples That Breathe” as an instant download.

One of the UK underground’s longest-running and most respected acts, HECATE ENTHRONED has been praised by the likes of Terrorizer for their “mixture of Death Metal aggression with Black Metal atmosphere.” “Embrace Of The Godless Aeon” – their first recording with vocalist Joe Stamps, who joined the band in 2015 – sees the group continue to deftly mix Black with Death, Modern with Classic and Extreme with Symphonic. The album, which features guest vocals on three songs by Sarah Jezebel Deva (CRADLE OF FILTH, THERION, MORTIIS), was co-produced by Dan Abela (VOICES, THE ANTICHRIST IMPERIUM).

Originally co-founded in Wales by guitarist Nigel Dennen in the mid-1990s, HECATE ENTHRONED is dedicated to delivering their own brand of evil Metal with little regard to politics or the trends of popular demand. The group’s 1997 full-length debut, the Andy Sneap-produced “The Slaughter Of Innocence, A Requiem For The Mighty” (Blackend Records), was a seminal release in the then-burgeoning orchestral black metal movement. Since then, several albums and EPs and numerous live performances have firmly established the band as one of extreme metal’s most important voices, a sentiment that “Embrace Of The Godless Aeon” firmly reinforces.

BULGARRITORY with second album

STOIAN KAEV (FIN BULGARIA/BULGARRITORY) album “Nekade tam” is in the process of being completed and is expected to be released in December. It will be his first solo album for two years now.
