TAAKE debuts track from upcoming album

With the release of TAAKE’s “Kong Vinter” less than three weeks away, Dark Essence Records have today debuted a track “Inntrenger” from what will be the seventh full-length album from one of Norway’s Black Metal elite.

Nestled within the looming embrace of seven mountains, the rugged, rain-swept coastline of Bjoergvin has spawned many extreme bands and musicians over the years, but none quite as iconic as TAAKE and its formidable founder Hoest, who is now back with a seventh full-length album. Titled “Kong Vinter” (King Winter), the album is set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 24th November in Digipak CD, Digital and Vinyl formats, with the Vinyl available in black, transparent and white versions. All are double, 180 gram LPs in a gatefold cover. Transparent and white are limited to 1000 each.

Over the years Hoest has steered his creation with unerring accuracy through the mire of Black Metal. He has avoided the pitfalls of either stagnation or over-experimentation, and remained true to the spirit of the traditional Black Metal genre, whilst at the same time breathing fresh life into it.

Taake - Kong Vinter

Taake – Kong Vinter

True to form Hoest has spent three years working on “Kong Vinter”, ensuring that the album is imbued with the unique Taake sound, whilst at the same time taking it even further. It is deceptively familiar to the ear, yet it is unpredictable as it winds its way sinuously through a soundscape that only a mother could love. A soundscape underscored by a nasty groove, that at times can seem devilishly playful.

The result is an album that is both progressive and straight forward, with a touch of the devil’s own music – Rock’n’Roll, making it unmistakably TAAKE. It is, in fact, an illustration as to why, for over two decades, Hoest has succeeded in remaining relevant and at the forefront of the genre.

“Kong Vinter”, on which Hoest plays all the instruments himself, was recorded and produced by Bjornar Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES) at his Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen. With a running time of 55 minutes and album artwork by Tom Korsvold of Coverart, track listing is as follows:

1. Sverdets Vei
2. Inntrenger
3. Huset i Havet
4. Havet i Huset
5. Jernhaand
6. Maanebrent
7. Fra Bjoergegrend mot Glemselen
8. On Top (DE PRESS cover, bonus track on the vinyl edition)

MOONSPELL: Premiere of brand new lyrics video

There’s only one Metal band that is able to hit official album charts on #1 in their home country Portugal, while they belong to the worldwide pioneers of dark art: Naturally and for the first time ever, MOONSPELL’s brand new album “1755” comes and is sung in Portuguese. Set for release on November 3rd 2017 on Napalm Records, this record will outclass all standards you have ever heard from MOONSPELL before!

The conceptual album dramaturgy feels like a detonation of the mind. “1755”, the 13rd studio record by MOONSPELL, is more than just the band’s new magnum opus: It’s the musical version of the year of horror where a giant earthquake wrecked their hometown Lisbon.

“1755” is a dark adventure in medieval landscapes – emotionally, technically and completely earthshaking!

Moonspell - 1755

Moonspell – 1755

Now the band premieres a new lyric video for the song “Evento” (English: “Event”), vocalist Fernando Ribeiro informs us: “Bury the dead. Take care of the living”. Is one of the most famous quote of Marquis of Pombal (Sebastião José Carvalho e Melo), the minister of the King who together with the crowds of Lisbon and his engineers rebuilt a new Lisbon from the ashes and ruins of the old in just one year time. Event talks about fate, a dialogue built between the narration of the day and the state of mind of Lisbon’s inhabitants and the all powerful choir telling me to be still and accept God’s will. This conflict and the desacralisation of Lisbon is one of the most interesting aspects of this accursed day. A fight that allowed Portugal to step out finally from the Middle Ages and make the country’s entry into Enlightenment.”

The track list of “1755” reads as follows:

1. Em Nome Do Medo
2. 1755
3. In Tremor Dei ( featuring Portuguese guest vocalist Paulo Bragança! )
4. Desastre
5. Abanão
6. Evento
7. 1 De Novembro
8. Ruínas
9. Todos Os Santos
10. Lanterna Dos Afogados

J.D. OVERDRIVE – second single available to stream

“Protectors Of All That is Evil”, second single from J.D. OVERDRIVE’s new album is available to stream. The song is taken from the band’s fourth album “Wendigo”, which will be released on October, 20th in Europe and December, 8th in North America via Metal Mind Productions.

After 10 years on the scene, releasing three successful albums (“Sex, Whiskey & Southern Blood” from 2011, “Fortune Favors the Brave” from 2013 and “The Kindest of Deaths” from 2015) and a split album „Rusted Into Oblivion” with PALM DESERT in 2016, sharing the stage with such prominent names as CLUTCH, DOWN, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, WHITESNAKE, BLOOD CEREMONY, SOULFLY, RED FANG, KARMA TO BURN, EUROPE, Phil Anselmo & THE ILLEGALS, SAXON or BLACK STAR RIDERS, Katowice-based J.D. OVERDRIVE return with “Wendigo”, probably their most diverse work to date. Ten songs loosely based around the Native American myth of Wendigo showcase a fresh new take on the genre of southern metal, backed by a truly powerful sound (the album was mixed and mastered by Haldor Grunberg of Satanic Audio, known from his work with THAW, BELZEBONG, DOPELORD, AZARATH and BEHEMOTH). Be warned – in October 2017 the beast will be unleashed.

Invictus Productions sets November 24th as release date for COSCRADH’s new EP “Of Death and Delirium”

Invictus Productions sets November 24th as the international release date for COSCRADH’s highly anticipated new EP, entitled “Of Death and Delirium”.

Just last year, Invictus unfurled COSCRADH‘s self-titled debut demo, which subsequently went on to reap international acclaim. Here, COSCRADH presented a new revelation in the Irish Black/Death Metal underground, and yet another extremely promising newcomer fostered by Invictus. An auspicious start, with its ever-swarming sensation of hideousness and eldritch dread, but along comes “Of Death and Delirium”  to eclipse that.

Coscradh

Coscradh

Every element of “Of Death and Delirium” takes its predecessor to more extreme lengths. Playing, production, songwriting, atmosphere: verily, this is the severest Metal of Death given fuller flight and more far flung into the great abyss. Gnarled and gnawing, possessive of a molten muscularity that always threatens to explode into chaos, COSCRADH now finesse their towering creations with a keen attention to nuance; underneath, the primordial waters of time eternal swirl ever more dangerously and direly. Spewing forth three despair-ridden odes to suffering, violence, and madness, “Of Death and Delirium” confesses a cacophony of death metal majesty that soundtracks horrors seen and unseen – and within, Coscradh stand intrepid, in control but fatefully locked into a state of primal psychosis.

Titled truly, as both manifesto and momentum, “Of Death and Delirium” is COSCRADH‘s first grand strike upon the world stage. Feel its first wrath with the new track “Hangwoman”:

at Invictus’ Bandcamp, where the record can also be preordered. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
