Spain's In Thousand Lakes sets release date for new Xtreem Music album, reveal first video and track
Xtreem Music has set February 20th as the international release date for In Thousand Lakes' highly anticipated second album, Age of Decay. Eleven tracks recorded at Chromaticity Studios (Vhäldemar, Rise to Fall), Age of Decay is an album which reflects all the band's influences, which go from European death metal through to heavy metal, thrash metal, and progressive.
In Thousand Lakes are a melodic death metal band formed in 1995 in Bilbao, Spain. The band released the demo Emotions in 1996 and the album Lifeless Waters and Forgotten Land in 1998, and then split up later that year. The most important shows of the band were at the Barbarian Rock festival held in Jerez, Spain in 1998 with bands like Manowar or Napalm Death and an opening for Cradle of Filth in Bergara, Spain shortly after the release of the Emotions demo.
In October 2013, In Thousand Lakes was active again with the original members Jokin (guitar) and Javi (drums) completing the lineup with Jose (vocals) and J (bass). In September 2014, the band recorded the EP Martyrs of Evolution, featuring four new songs, with producer Jagoba Ormaetxea and cover artwork by Satanik Design. Martyrs of Evolution was released through Pathologically Explicit Recordings
In May 2015, J left the band and Pintxo became the new bass-player. During the summer of 2015 and after 17 shows presenting Martyrs of Evolution, the band enters the studio again for the recording of "The Scaffold," a song about the witchcraft, and records their first professional video. "The Scaffold" was included on the compilation album The Memories that Burn, where you can find the remastered reissue of the band's debut album, Lifeless Waters and Forgotten Land, and the demo Emotions.
In October 2015, Igor entered in the band as second guitarist. The Memories that Burn was released in January 2016 through Pathologically Explicit Recordings. In Thousand Lakes then began work on Age of Decay. The band recorded eleven tracks at Chromaticity Studios (Vhäldemar, Rise to Fall). The release of the album is accompanied by a lyric video of the song "True North" [HERE] and a clip for the first track off the album, "Death Train" [HERE].

Scottish avant-garde blackened metal band Ashenspire have teamed up with Heavy Blog is Heavy to reveal their lyric video for "Restless Giants". The video features images of Glasgow while the harrowing track plays in the background. The track is taken from their new album Speak Not of the Laudanum Quandary which will be released on January 20th.
The band commented: "Drawing particularly relevant parallels to scenes of today, Restless Giants is an observation focusing on the displaced, or refugees. Scottish history is no stranger to this concept (the Highland Clearances come to mind) but the uprooting and vilification of common peoples has long been a tool used by oppressors and imperialists the world over to justify subjugation and indifference. We leave the listener to draw their own conclusions on the associated images."

Canada's 88 Mile Trip releases free EP 'Blame Canada' ft. covers of BTO, Neil Young, Red River and more
Vancouver's 88 Mile Trip are very proud Canadians, they are so proud that they have put together a new 5 track EP entitled 'Blame Canada' covering songs in tribute to Canadian rock and roll music of years past such as Bachman Turner Overdrive, Neil Young, Red River, The Stampeders plus Doug and The Slugs. The best part about this EP besides it all celebrating Canuck music, is that it's available for FREE DOWNLOAD via the band's bandcamp page at https://88miletrip.bandcamp.com.
The EP was created as a fun salute to the greats who laid the foundation for 88 MILE TRIP and other modern Canadian bands. The connection came full circle when, while recording the EP, Doug And The Slugs co-founder and keyboard player Simon Kendall got wind that the band were covering “Tomcat Prowl”, that he came down to the studio to lay down some keys on it.
The band explains the story behind the EP:
"The idea for the Blame Canada EP was spawned while we were on tour promoting our full length album “Through The Thickest Haze”. On our drive from Calgary AB to Cranbrook, BC, a song came on the radio in the van with this incredibly heavy riff that was good enough to be on any of the first four Black Sabbath records. It turned out to be a Bachman Turner Overdrive song called “Not Fragile”. After that we got thinking, if we had never heard this song before, how many other awesome Canadian rock songs have we missed out on. That thought turned into many hours of beer drinking plus record spinning, and eventually the idea to cover some songs we had discovered. We hope that Canadian music fans, young and old alike, enjoy this tribute to some of the best music our country has ever produced."
