Finally! Eluveitie is alive, complete and stronger than ever before! Because after the folk metal superstars had to part ways with some band members in May 2016, mourning and waiting is over: the new line-up is set! It was a long tramp for the fans as well as for the band to get there. They have taken a lot of time with the search for new musicians and now they can present the possibly strongest line-up of the band!
Frontman Chrigel adds:
"It's a great feeling to be complete again! We're full of zest for action and looking forward to enter the world's stages again!"
But who are these new members?
It is not revealed yet. But it will be worth it to check the completely new designed website of the band (www.eluveitie.ch) from the 15th of December, because there will be a countdown to reveal the new line-up! New and old band members will be presented little by little with a wanted poster, videos and interviews. The complete new line-up will be unveiled on January 5th, one day before the band's own festival, Eluveitie & Friends, will take place at Z7, Pratteln, Switzerland! At this festival, Eluveitie will perform with their new line-up for the first time!

Despite having your head in the underground and possessing a knowledge of all genres and sub-genres, sometimes all it takes to move you is a band like Maloic who're admittedly simple but so passionate that you can't help but reminisce fondly about your early metal days when you were less of a critic and more of a music fan (no offense to anyone!). From the small coastal town of Mangalore (not to be confused with Bangalore), we have Maloic and they tell us a bit about themselves in their video premiere article over HERE.
Maloic are a revelation. They're creating music using elements of various genres and creating heavy metal music that has that undeniable classic quality to it. Reminiscent of bands like Amorphis (mid-period), Obituary, Primordial, Sentenced and Metallica, it's definitely got a nostalgic and folk-ish feel to it. The instrumentation is brilliant and with mixing and mastering done by one of the most reputed studios in the country, it's a delight to listen to. The music is instantly memorable, catchy and will have you reaching for the repeat button. Taking into account the fact that the band is only from a small coastal town called Mangalore, the music that we have here is simply overwhelming. This is the reason why we listen to extreme metal - it's full of passion and full of surprises.
The Finnish theatrical metal newcomers Lost In Grey shied the public so far. Founded back in 2013, the Finnish sextet around front man Harri Koskela entrenched themselves over the course of the last years to give their debut album "The Grey Realms“ (out March 03rd, 2017) the final polishing.
The band just announced their first digital single. The song "Dark Skies" will be available as IG track on December 23th. Two days earlier, the band will release the video clip of that song.
The band offer a foretaste of the upcoming video clip in the form of a short video teaser.
Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-E4hMks08WI
Lost In Grey states:
"Greetings all thee! As midwinter creeps over forest and field, on December 21st our music is revealed. Winter solstice comes with the promise of a sunrise: it is our song, accompanied by a video, called “Dark Skies”. Yours sincerely, LOST IN GREY"
Mexican Metallers Heavens Decay have partnered with Metal Underground for the exclusive stream of forthcoming debut album The Great Void of Mystery. Stream that sucker at http://www.metalunderground.com/news/details.cfm?newsid=129811
Chaos Records will release The Great Void of Mystery, on December 12. Led by Julio Viterbo (Tormentor, Shub Niggurath, Cenotaph, The Chasm), the music is primarily NWOBHM-inspired Heavy Metal infused with the range of influences from Viterbo's impressive career as a musician. Pre-order the album at this location.
After a long and illustrious career in Death Metal as a guitarist in the aforementioned bands, Viterbo decided to reconnect with the Heavy Metal that enveloped him as a youth and gave meaning to his life. The groundwork was laid in August 2013 when Viterbo participated in the recording of Acerus debut album The Unreachable Salvation, a Heavy Metal album for which he composed half the songs. The work was a turning point in his career as a guitarist, allowing Viterbo to explore new sounds and expand his compositional scope.
The result was the launch of Heavens Decay in 2015. After composing several songs, Viterbo invited Oscar Clorio (Damned Cross, Cenotaph, Shub Niggurath, Denial) to join him on the journey as drummer, The pair then recruited Nick Hernandez (Stone Magnum) as vocalist. The songs were completed via the Internet, as Oscar lives in Mexico City, while Julio and Nick call Chicago home.
Finally in July 2016 Heavens Decay recorded The Great Void Of Mystery in Chicago's Minbal studios. The album was engineered by Matt Russell and mastered by Dan Swanö in Unisound studios in Sweden. Chaos Records will release the album on CD and digital formats. The band is already working on new material for the next installment of Heavy Metal Fury.
Swedish Black / Death Metal veterans Omnizide have released a new song from forthcoming album NekroRegime. Check out No Clean Singing's exclusive stream of "Deathwomb" at this location.

Stream the title track at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJvlIH6aTiQ
NekroRegime was recorded and mixed by Erik Hagelberg at DeathWomb Studio in the winter of 2015/2016. The album was mastered by Jona Kjellgren at Blacklounge Studio.

Today, Mexican black metal cartel Mordskog premiere the new track "Mors Est Vitae Essentia" at heavily trafficked web-portal NoCleanSinging.com. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated debut album, XIII, set for international release on January 6th, 2017 via Werewolf Records, freshly in conspiracy with Hells Headbangers. Hear Mordskog's "Mors Est Vitae Essentia" exclusively HERE.
Despite hailing from the hellishly humid climes of Mexico City, the trio of Mordskog bewitch with an ancient black metal mysticism that's freezing to the touch but burning at its core. And yet, for all its '90s classicism, there's not a single clear-cut influence to easily discern across the nine tracks of XIII; it's as if all the best strains of second-wave black metal, be they Norwegian or Polish or Swedish or French or even Greek and Czech, have profusely swirled within a long-hidden cauldron, only now to bubble over and into something familiar yet foreign. But just as equally do Mordskog honor their heritage with a hallucinatory, coke-dusted approach to songwriting, locating all the crevices below and between, spiritually spelunking and basking in the descent.
With noses seduced by the harshest yeyo, this is all ably amplified by the strange 'n' powerful production, which all sounds like it could've arrived from the more boundless, unorthodox '90s. The gates have opened and the landscape ahead is vast: Mordskog have the number with XIII. Hear the next number to be revealed exclusively HERE, courtesy of NoCleanSinging.com. The first number can be heard the track "Nascentes Morimur" exclusively HERE at Werewolf Records' Bandcamp, where the album can also be pre-ordered.
Werewolf Records is a Luciferian metal temple founded in 1998. The wolfish cry from the Carelian battleground, Werewolf Records exclusively releases black metal and congruent noise. In this age when black metal’s worth is questionable, idealism and rigour are the exception when they should be the highest law. We uphold the law of the Wolf – the destruction of the weak and the false so that the original vitality of the dark magic art can continue to grow and create the foundations for an empire. Black metal is Will and Power. We deal with material that inspires us on our journey towards our own kingdom - a kingdom that is not yours, but bears a resemblance to the one there could be for you. Now in conspiracy with Hells Headbangers, the temple of Werewolf Records shall wage its war farther and wider than ever, with no spiritual surrender.
Cover and track-listing for Mordskog's XIII are as follows:

Pre-order the upcoming album:
Norwegian black metal icons Mayhem are celebrating the release of their 1994 landmark De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas full-length with tours across the globe. This coming January, the band will march their way across North America performing the record in its monumental entirety.
In conjunction with their many live appearances, Mayhem will also release De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive on December 15th, 2016. The album was captured live in Norrköping, Sweden last year during the band's headlining set at the Black Christmass Festival. The show marked Mayhem's first time ever playing De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas in full.
Notes the band of first single "From The Dark Past," "'From The Dark Past' has not been played many times live before, yet is in many ways an archetypical song from the band, containing key elements that are scattered throughout the rest of the album - blizzard blast beats and eerie atmospherics, all of course adorned by vocalist Attila Csihar's unique voice within the genre. De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas is widely considered one of the most influential black metal albums of all time, and this is the first time in history this classic album from 1994 is performed live in its entirety."
