_From today and up until the release date (3rd July - via Hells Headbangers) - the entirety of Mongrels Cross' "The Sins of Aquarius" album will be exclusively streamed here.
"The Sins of Aquarius" is Mongrels Cross' highly anticipated debut album, following swiftly on the heels of their cult 'Whoresanna' EP. Seven anthems of chaotic-yet-poised black/death barbarity, The Sins of Aquarius spans filthy thrashing, downtempo warmarches, and epic metal grandeur alike, with a powerful panache and strong songwriting to the fore: these Australian hooligans definitely throw down the gauntlet and spit on all pretenders!
_Australian all star metal project Empires of Eden have just released samples from their entire new album “Channelling the Infinite“, the songs can be streamed from here.
From Avantasia to Ayreon and beyond, collaborations in metal typically prove to be more than the sum of their parts. This has been never been more true than in the case of Empires of Eden, a melodic metal project originating from Sydney, Australia and spanning the entire globe in its unprecedented scope.
Special presale packs are available to purchase from here.
Masterminded by former Dungeon guitarist and ESP clinician Stu Marshall, Empires of Eden is characterised by a massive power metal sound, 30-piece orchestral score, and guest performances from some of the most celebrated musicians in the industry. Proving that neither oceans nor national boundaries are capable of stopping this explosive onslaught, Marshall has enlisted the participation of artists from all corners of the globe to assemble an army of veteran talent like no other.
Antagonist A.D. have premiered the song "Violence" from their upcoming album _'Nothing From No One' on their official Facebook page, which can be found here .
The album is set to hit stores on July 3rd through Mediaskare Records.
“The new album steps in a more personal direction than our previous releases,” stated vocalist Sam Crocker. “There are still the usual themes you can expect from Antagonist A.D. with songs about animal rights, consumerism & apathy, but where it differs is dealing with anxiety, depression – feelings of alienation. I think for me, being from a tiny town on a small isolated island at bottom of the world I really started to feel that isolation – the lyrics have been a lot more therapeutic than anything I have written before.”
Metal Blade Records have signed Australian Heavy Doom outfit Raven Black Night.
Formed in 1999 in Adelaide, Raven Black Night started their campaign to bring their traditional metal sound to the global scene. After numerous gigs throughout Australia they recorded and released their debut album 'Choose The Dark' in 2005.
'Choose The Dark' turned heads all over Australia and Europe, resulting in an invite in 2007 to play at the 10th annual Headbangers Open Air in Germany. A new collaboration with Metal Blade Records and a new album in the process will firmly bring the quartet to the masses.
The band's singer/guitarist Jim Petkoff said: "As founders of Raven Black Night my metal brother Rino Amorino and I are proud and excited to sign with Metal Blade, a label with a rich history and much respect in the metal world. We believe Metal Blade will help bring Raven Black Night to the metal masses and look forward to a great journey together."
Watch out for RAVEN BLACK NIGHT's new album in late 2012!_
