Death metal classicists Rotheads stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut album, Sewer Fiends, at heavily trafficked web-portal IndyMetalVault.com. Set for international release on January 22nd via Memento Mori, hear Rotheads' Sewer Fiends in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Hailing from Romania, the putrid ensemble of Rotheads was formed in Bucharest back in 2014 as an old-school death metal side-project to the experimental doom / noise / stoner-improv band Keeng Ra'at; both bands contained the same three members. By 2015, five songs were written, and recordings began in December of that year. Ultimately, six songs (plus intro and outro) came out in April 2016 as the Unfazed by Death demo, which turned out to be a remarkable, sick trip into the bowels of murky and foul-smelling death metal. In the meantime, another guitarist joined the band, and the original bassist left and rejoined later on. The original drummer and vocalist also left the band in August, and another drummer has since joined, while the vocals are now handled by the original guitarist. Rotheads have played only a few times live, the most memorable being two gigs around Romania with the legendary Sadistic Intent.
"Aptly fucking titled" is an understatement when it comes to Sewer Fiends. Here, Rotheads take their aggregate influences - particularly from the classic early '90s Finnish scene (Abhorrence, early Sentenced, Demigod, Depravity), as well as other timeless crypt dwellers such as Autopsy, Incantation, Carnage, Accidental Suicide, Grave, and Asphyx - and proceed to create a mesmerizingly murky 'n' moody work with their debut album. The sewage is piled high and plentifully, as foul 'n' fetid riffs flow fast and freely, but always with a clearly discernible direction; after all, Rotheads are firmly grounded in the timeless songwriting style of old-school death metal, where feeling and texture are paramount over technique and other flashy wank. And those riffs continue to roll ever forward, malevolently and majestically, just like a (filth-strewn) tank. And yet, amidst all this crunch and carnage lay a layering of eerie melody atop, evoking fresh crypts opening slowly or the tension of wandering further into tomb-like sewers. Indeed, Rotheads are as aptly named as their album is titled, and we dare you to emerge from their mouldy embrace completely clean - there's just no way to wash off this horror!
As an appetizer, just stare deeply into Cesar Valladares' cryptic cover art. And, with mixing and mastering courtesy of Javier Felez at Moontower Studios, it's all but guaranteed that Rotheads' Sewer Fiends will be one of the best (if not THE BEST) death metal debuts of the year! Hear all of it for yourself exclusively HERE, courtesy of IndyMetalVault.com.
Italians Heretic’s Dream have released their first new material since their 2016 album Floating State Of Mind. It comes in the form of a video and single for the track A Price To Pay. Since releasing their last album, the band have gone through a line-up change but now they are back and once again, firing on all cylinders. Heretic’s Dream are currently working on their fourth studio album, due to be released via Sliptrick Records in Autumn 2018 and with the current working title, Resilience.
Here’s what the band had to say about their new single:-
“The song is about the dichotomy lived by a parent, between the consciousness that his child deserves to live his life and to have his own experiences (even the toughest) and the temptation of preserving him from dangers and suffering.
“To love you is to die a bit, and make a deal with Hell / to love you is to dance with fear/to love you is to let you go, my words just run in circles”, states the chorus, while the video tells the story of a child divided between two fighting parents.
The child’s love overcomes the adults’ barriers and the two separated parents even end up meeting each other in a common embrace with their child. Waiting for a phone to ring is A Price To Pay when you love someone who learns daily to become a man in this world.”

2018 marks the return of Oxford-based sludge-metal titans Desert Storm as they prepare to follow the release of 2014’s critically-acclaimed ‘Omniscient’ album with their new opus ‘Sentinels’, confirmed for release this coming March 16th via APF Records.
Recorded with engineer Jamie Dodd (Orange Goblin) at Flesh & Bone Studio's, Hackney and tracked by Steve 'Geezer' Watkins at Woodworm studios (which has also been used by legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi), ‘Sentinels’ is a colossal sounding record, it’s ten tracks punching the listener with an oppressive towering monolithic sound that batters, but never dulls the senses.
“This album is a natural progression from our previous releases,” explains guitarist Ryan Cole. “It has the Desert Storm sound, but has moved in a much harder, darker and heavier direction.”
Today we get to hear the first rumblings from ‘Sentinels’ in the shape of ‘Too Far Gone’, a brutal, pounding powerhouse of a track that tackles the bleak subject of excessive binge drinking. “It’s the paradox of hard liquor being both the cause and the remedy of the sickness,” states vocalist Matt Ryan. “Self destruction and punishment of the body. It’s inspired by the tragic tales of Bon Scott and John Bonham, along with fictional characters Ben Sanderson of Leaving Las Vegas and to a lesser extent, Jim Lahey of Trailer Park Boys. It’s a miserable outcome as our song begins with alcoholism and ends in death.”

Italian metalcore quintet Forbidden Seasons have announced that their debut album ‘Promise’ will be released via This Is Core on 16th March 2018. The LP follows on from their 2017 debut, EP ‘Paramnesia’, with vocalist Mark Seasons saying of the title: “’Promise’ refers to all the promises made by people that are never fulfilled because of their selfishness.” As an introduction to the record, the lead single ‘Thank You For The Venom’ can also be streamed here, with Mark revealing “It’s one of our favourite songs, and it reflects the overall sound of the album, so we thought it was great to launch with it.”
Hailing from Turin, Italy, the band is completed by Symon Ray on Lead Guitar, Danny Ghale on Rhythm Guitar, Paul J. Price on Bass and Federico Spagnoli handling both Drums and Keys. Founded in 2015, they simply came together as five individuals intent on realizing their dreams to play music. Mark explains the moniker: “It’s about discrimination and lack of half measures in society. Everything is completely bad or good, black or white. There’s no space for gray anymore. Forbidden Seasons, it’s like forbidden feelings, forbidden thoughts, forbidden actions, forbidden goals... So we thought that name fit great with this idea.”
The writing of forthcoming LP ‘Promise’ began after their Russian tour in February 2017, with Mark revealing “it’s been both amusing and hard at the same time to create it. The lyrics address topics such as loneliness, anger, apathy and misplaced trust, and all of those are reflected on the listener.” Taking their time, recording took place over 7 months at HTR Studios in Turin and the outcome is self-described as “really reflecting who we are and the direction we want to take. Both in terms of sound and composition, it’s very different from Paramnesia, heavier than our last work; we wanted to create a deeper sound according to our emotional state.” Melodically charged, beauty meeting darkness, their sound evokes Saosin and Underoath, Forbidden Seasons certainly are a promising prospect.

Killibrium from India have come up with a fantastic album that's both powerful and relevant. Check out the first song on Bandcamp or YouTube. They have this to say about their debut album titled 'Purge' -
"Killibrium is a state of balance and harmony paved through by destructive actions exchanged between two opposing forces. In an internal conflict, one side of humans naturally takes this path with the intent to harmonize, while the other side opposes this and fuels aggression. There are various social contexts in which this conflict of identity leads to destructive events. Songs are based on various thoughts that the band has on these identities and situations."
India's most exciting new death metal band Killibrium have announced their debut release and it's every bit worth the long wait. They have found a brilliant balance between old school and the modern, technical and brutal death metal. It's catchy and at the same time engrossing. Artwork duties have been handled by none other than Michal "Xaay" Loranc (Pestilence, Nile, Schammasch) and the production too is impeccable, with everything sounding powerful and clear. Killibrium are touted as the next big band in India and going by the material on hand here, there is very litle doubt about that.
Keshav Kumar - Guitars
Mihir Bhende - Drums
Nitin Rajan - Vocals
Suvajit Chakraborty (aka Bunty) - Bass

Osmose Productions proudly announces the label's impending release of The Incubus Of Karma, the massive fifth album by Australia's stone pillar of funereal dirge, Mournful Congregation. The label will unveil the double-LP in Europe and the UK on March 23rd, and advancing its release, the massive "Scripture Of Exaltation And Punishment" has been made available for streaming HERE.
More than six years have passed since the release of Mournful Congregation's regal fourth full-length, The Book Of Kings. Since that time, the band made several trips to Europe and the US and released a mini-album Conrcrescence Of The Sophia, increasing their reputation as the pinnacle of extreme/funeral doom and one of the most influential bands in the entire genre.
Throughout these intervening years, Mournful Congregation set to the task of meticulously crafting a new masterpiece, now presented in the form of the crown jewel titled The Incubus Of Karma. Everything that has made this band the unchallenged masters of this style since The Monad Of Creation is here: the agonizing weight of extreme doom riffs, bitterly sombre dissonance, a painterly attention to detail and arrangement, and the vocals summoned from the deepest hole. And as with each album before, the band expands upon their unique progressive tendencies, weaving beautifully constructed solos and lengthy virtuoso interludes into a bleak yet intricate tapestry of stately grandeur. The Incubus Of Karma also marks the band's first album with drummer Tim Call (Nightfell, Weregoat, Sempiternal Dusk, Aldebaran).
An incredible 25 years into their existence, Mournful Congregation persists in refining and perfecting their immortal art on The Incubus Of Karma. Reaching innovative new heights, within the bounds they have created for themselves, the bounds in which a multitude of newer bands now draw from like a wellspring, Mournful Congregation cast a giant shadow, steadfastly towering over the landscape like a monolithic obelisk.
The album's nearly 15-minute "Scripture Of Exaltation And Punishment" has been made available for streaming HERE at Osmose's official YouTube channel. More audio samples to follow shortly.
Damon Good - vocals/guitars
Justin Hartwig - guitars
Ben Newsome - bass

Dutch death metallers Anarchos stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut album, Invocation of Moribund Spirits, at Decibel magazine's website. Set for international release on January 19th via Blood Harvest Records, hear Anarchos' Invocation of Moribund Spirits in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Featuring past and present members of of such bands as Eternal Solstice, Burning Hatred, Ulcerate Fester, Satanic Tyrant, and Profligate, Anarchos play total death metal for total death metal maniacs. Neither concertedly "old school" nor "modern" whilst rejecting neither when it comes to the grand, gutted spectrum of death metal, Anarchos create a dense-yet-dynamic maelstrom of morbid energy. Their debut full-length, Invocation of Moribund Spirits is aptly titled: such a timeless, trend-free swell of sewage and filth sounds as rottenly fresh now as it would a decade ago or even a decade (or more) before that.
Anarchos was born in 2010 when Vincent joined forces with Ardy and Martin to create raw and obscure death metal. In the rehearsal room, it turned out that the skills of the three individuals combined perfectly. The first music was written and the band was completed during the winter of 2011/2012 with Thorsten on bass and Harold on vocals.
The written songs were eternalized in one recording session of a rehearsal in the spring of 2012. This demo was raw and brutal, but did not contain the quality to release it on a true format. Nevertheless, Anarchos wanted to engulf the world with their music, so they published the demo only digitally.
After the winter of 2013, there was a change in the Anarchos lineup, with Harold being replaced by Frank on vocals. With this lineup, it was time to enter the studio and record proper material. Five songs were recorded at the Dirty Bird Studios for an EP release. The resulting Descent Into The Maelström was released upon the world by Vic Records in February 2014 on MCD and by Murder Records in May 2014 on tape. During the spring of 2015, Thorsten left.
Through the years 2016 and 2017, recordings for Anarchos' first full-length were made. Invocation Of Moribund Spirits was recorded, mixed, and mastered at the Dirty Bird Studios by Fredde Kaddeth (Massive Assault, Entrapment, Burning Hatred). The result, along with Anarchos' throttling songwriting and impassioned execution, is as crushing as it comes whilst retaining a sense of clarity. No "cavernous" smokescreen here - just classic DEATH METAL, done with dedication and sincerity.
Death metal doesn't need to be resurrected when it's supposed to be DEAD in the first place. Let Anarchos bring forth an Invocation of Moribund Spirits! Feel the full force of DEATH exclusively HERE, courtesy of Decibel, North America's only monthly metal magazine. Preorder info can be found HERE for the CD version, and HERE for the vinyl version.
