German band Atrium Noctis are ready with the release of their new album, Aeterni. With a new line-up, formed around ever present member Hydra Gorgonia, the band have moved into a new, advanced artistic direction. Atrium Noctis plays music which has its roots in symphonic dark and black metal. Influences from classical music and elements from Pagan Metal, contribute to a pronounced, unique sound and a special type of sheen to the output. There is great darkness paired with a thick slice of heaviness emphasized within the new songs.
Melancholic, hymnic and sentimental passages are also a part of the music. Additionally, epic and colourful nuances enrich everything as a whole. Atrium Noctis love big sound pictures and have largely unburdened themselves from the genre limits of black metal which have allowed songs like Datura Noir and Die Nacht des Falken to be created. Multiple singers have been involved and guarantee a wide range of vocal diversity throughout the songs and highlighting the German lyrics.
Atrium Noctis have also dedicated themselves to a melodic sound and the band members bring their different musical backgrounds to the fore. There are open minded musicians who have played metal their entire lives, a female singer who is classically skilled, two studied musicians who are open for anything, all of which contribute to the deep black soul of the album. With Aeterni, the musicians of Cologne, successfully strive for a true authenticity and a return to the roots of the original formation.
Aeterni | Released September 9th, 2017 on Sliptrick Records
Atrium Noctis are:
Hydra Gorgonia – Keys
Hein – Screams
Sturm – Guitar
Thyratus – Guitar
Rhadamanthys – Guitar
Nemrod – Drums

Dunkelheit Produktionen has set November 13th as the international release date for Sacrilegious Rite's highly anticipated debut album, Summoned From Beyond.
Although a seemingly brand-new name, Sacrilegious Rite's history stretches back to the '90s, when the band was formed following the breakup of Captis Damnare, who were active from 1999-2010. The remaining members Sumnor Amdis and E.I.-M. moved on to take a new path matching their interests and visions more than Captis Damnare ever did or could do. Their possibilities were limited, although there was inspiration, for sure. Infernal Beast, the drummer, left the band after a year. Throughout this timespan, some songs were recorded and a few gigs were played. This line-up recorded that songs that comprised the split releases with the German black metal legends Ungod and Bolivian cult Bestial Holocaust.
After Infernal Beast dropped out of the band, a lot of experiments with the line-up were undertaken - without any success. For a while, Sacrilegious Rite went on hiatus because E.I.M. lost interest in being a musician for a while and Sumnor Amdis went to work on his other projects. On the edge of disbanding, a new drummer was installed. Sitrom Rogir came at the right time, bringing just the right amount of passion and fanaticism to the table to get the band going again. Again, some concerts were played, and Angra Mainyu, former bassist of Captis Damnare, joined the band in the vacant position on bass. At last, the line-up was complete. The now-quartet eventually recorded the demo Black Curses of Death and the tracks for the split CD with Goatblood and Dethroned.
With their line-up solidified and a number of live gigs under their bullet-belts, Sacrilegious Rite hereby present their first full-length, aptly titled Summoned From Beyond. A work of both grimy physicality and mystical aura, Sacrilegious Rite fully embody the ancient spirit of black metal's yesteryears. By no means "retro"-minded nor completely against regression, the quartet conjure a pulsing bestiality cloaked in fog and sulphur, nodding as much to the early '90s Greek scene as they do South American wildness from the '80s. However, solid songwriting reigns supreme across Summoned From Beyond, and each of the eight central tracks (notwithstanding the mood-establishing intro and outro) patiently unfolds to envelop the listener in an orgy of vociferous violence and malignant majesty. Suitably, the recording balances robust rawness and lingering mystery alike, rivet-headed abandon and opaque splendour in equal measure. Further intensifying that orgiastic sensation, the album features a number of guest vocalists: Infernal Execrator's Lord Ashir on "Sacrilegious Rite," Adaestuo's Hekte Zaren on "Remains of the Deceased," and Bestial Holocaust's Sonia Sepulcral on "Strigoicia."
The past is alive, and it's been Summoned From Beyond by Sacrilegious Rite! Begin the summoning with the new track "Deathstalker" at Dunkelheit's Bandcamp HERE and also at the label's official YouTube page HERE.

Nearly three years in the making, black metal legends Satyricon have revealed their highly anticipated ninth studio album, 'Deep calleth upon Deep' is set for release on 22nd September via Napalm Records. The opus will be available in digital format, CD digipak and gatefold vinyl options and is now available for pre-order HERE!
The band recently unveiled initial album details and the album’s artwork, an obscure drawing from 1898 by perhaps the greatest Norwegian artist of all time, Edvard Munch.
Recorded in Oslo, Norway and Vancouver, Canada, during early 2017 and mixed together with revered studio guru Mike Fraser (who previously worked on Satyricon’s 2006 album, ‘Now, Diabolical’), ‘Deep calleth upon Deep’ is not just a new collection of songs from one of extreme music’s most enduring and reliable bands: this is a wholesale reinvention and a brand new era in Satyricon history.
Says frontman and visionary Satyr: “Approaching this release, what I always kept in mind is that either this is the beginning of something new or it’s gonna be my last record. If this is going to be the last, then it needs to be something special. If there are more records, then I’d better make sure that this is so different from the last one that it feels like a new beginning. I think it’s really, really dark, very spiritual and filled with confidence and energy.”
'Deep calleth upon Deep' is a profound statement about the essence of Satyricon’s music and the eternal value of art itself. Satyr continues, “The way that I see it is that for any art, be it Satyricon or any other form of art with substance, in order for you to be able to inhale and completely understand it, it will take a little bit of you as well. If you get it all after a couple of listens, you know that it probably won’t stay with you. So the title is saying, ‘From the depth of the people making this record to the depth of the listener…’ If you want to take part in this journey, you should be prepared to dig deep down in the darkest corner of your soul with us."
Satyricon have always excelled as a live band, their evocative performances increasingly becoming special events as their frequency is dialled back to accommodate the Oslo band’s new ‘modus operandi’. In support of 'Deep calleth upon Deep' the band is set to tour on the following dates:

Based in Abtsgmünd, Germany, and active since 2008, skull-crushing death metal unit Necrotted have been killing it for many years now, both in the studio in recorded form and also during their countless energetic live performances throughout the years. On October 27th, 2017, the band will drop their 3rd full-length album entitled Worldwide Warfare through Rising Nemesis Records. Across ten ravenous songs, Worldwide Warfare aims to annihilate all who bear witness to its devastation. Doing so with a varied assault that superbly mixes brutality, speed, guitar shredding focused moments, and monstrous heaviness into a warped formula that only season death metal veterans like Necrotted can deliver.
Necrotted has this to say about Worldwide Warfare and the experience it has to offer:
"The southern German death metal brigade Necrotted is about to release its third full-length album. Worldwide Warfare is the title of the new record, which contains 10 socio-critical tracks about a global revolution, everlasting threats to society and the last war of mankind. Thrilling guitar riffs, high-speed blast beats and double bass attacks come upon stomping slam parts and catchy refrains, rounded off by deep, scratching vocals. Also for the third time, the songs were recorded and mixed by mastermind Nikita Kamprad (Der Weg Einer Freiheit). The album mastering was done by Benjamin Stelzer (Parasite Inc.) for the first time."
"At The End Of Times", the new album from Austrian Death / Thrashers Darkfall, will be released on September 8th via Black Sunset / MDD. With a running time of 55 minutes divided into 10 songs, "At The End Of Times" was mastered by Andy Classen on Stage One Studio and features the band's trademark: brutal and epic riffs, blasting drums and harsh growls.
The artwork, which was created by Michael Freitag, can be seen below. Darkfall have also announced that a release show will take place on September 8th at Graz Orpheum.
