Italy's Kingcrow release "Night's Descending" single ft. Daniel Gildenlow from Pain Of Salvation; pre-order For The Persistence now
Italian prog rock/metal outfit Kingcrow has issued a new single from their impending new album, The Persistence, set for early September release through Sensory Records. The new track, "Night's Descending," features a guest vocal performance by Pain Of Salvation's vocalist Daniel Gildenlow. This is a extra special pairing as Kingcrow will tour across Europe supporting Pain Of Salvation in conjunction with the release of The Persistence.
Offers Kingcrow's Diego Cafolla with the new single:-
"'Night's Descending' holds a special place in my heart for personal reasons and I love the sense of drama that permeates the song. As soon as I wrote the vocal melody I thought that it sounded perfect for the voice of Daniel Gildenlow from Pain Of Salvation. I talked with our singer Diego Marchesi about the idea and when he heard the song he totally agreed with me, so I contacted Daniel telling him I wrote a song that I thought it was perfect for his singing. Luckily Daniel liked the song quite a bit and told me he was going to making it. When we heard Daniel singing on 'Night's Descending' for the first time I was impressed by his incredibly emotional performance and I thought we definitely made right choice."

Kingcrow's upcoming third album for Sensory Records, The Persistence closes a three-year gap since their acclaimed Eidos album. Describing Kingcrow today is quite a difficult task, but one could state that the influence of different kinds of music; progressive rock, alternative rock, ambient music, metal, and more are all present in the band's songs. With each release, they take a step further away from their original roots and is regarded today as one of the most exciting bands that Italy has to offer. Recorded at Sound Under Pressure, The Persistence was produced by Kingcrow's Diego and Thundra Cafolla, mixed by Giampiero Ulacco, and completed with the photography and design of Devilnax, all the same as the album's predecessor. Fans of Steven Wilson, Riverside, and Dream Theater, this is required listening.
Italian thrashers Razgate has unveiled the cover artwork of their forthcoming full-length album "Welcome Mass Hysteria" that will be released this year by Punishment 18 Records. Mixing and mastering were completed by Tai Fronzaroli at 7studio (New Horizons, Fall as Leap).
Italian groovy melodic death metal band Bighate released a new music video Hybrid via Inverse Records. It's a link between Death Wish EP (released in 2017) and an upcoming new album.

Vocalst Heleonore comments:
"The topics covered tell about werewolves and ancient curses that give life to real black chronicles. Sound is close to Melodic Death Metal with modern influences."
Bighate is formed back in 2014 by Andy and Heleonore. They tried to mix their different musical taste, basically bounded to death, thrash and groove metal, to reach a common point. Band is currently working on a full-length album.
"Hybrid" is available on all digital platforms worldwide.

Italian Heavy Metal band Tytus, which signed a deal with Fighter Records in December 2017, are finishing the recordings of their sophomore album to be entitled "Rain After Drought" and soon will reveal cover art, first single and track-list as well as a definite release date for it which is expected for late 2018 or early 2019 through Fighter Records.
Tytus was born in Trieste (Italy) in 2014, releasing their first recording in form of a very limited 7"EP entitled "White Lines" in early 2015. Later on, the band got signed to Sliptrick Rec. which released their debut album "Rises" in October 2016, receiving a fairly good acceptance in the underground Heavy Metal scene.
In summer 2017, Tytus got in touch with Fighter Records which finally signed the band in December of the same year while the recording process was happening. It's been a long process, but "Rain After Drought" is near to be completed. It'll be a more mature work, still in the vein of their debut, and full of killer tunes with strong riffing gathering influences from bands like early Metallica, Iron Maiden, early Megadeth, Slough Feg…
As soon as everything's done, we'll be able to offer you a 1st advance song from "Rain After Drought" as well as cover artwork, track listing and a release date for it.

Hailing from Italy, Sludge Metal trio Carcharodon have signed a worldwide deal with Argonauta Records! Their third and hotly anticipated album titled 'Bukkraken' will be released on October 26th 2018.
Carcharodon started their journey as a power trio in 2003, inspired by a concept of the Nattero brothers (Boggio & Pixo). The band's intent was to mix extreme metal with the blues and heavy doom tunes. After several demos, split records as well as two critically acclaimed studio albums, followed by numerous shows all over Europe and the States, Carcharodon are getting back to their roots in terms of their sound and while they recorded their best album to date.
Says the band: „We decided to get in touch with Argonauta and Gero because this new record means a lot to us in terms of the band's evolution of sound, and we thought it deserved to be pushed properly with all possible means. We saw Argonauta grow fast during these last years and sign a lot of good bands of friends in the heavy genre, so we thought this could be the best choice for us. We asked some of these bands that are now our label mates and saw that they were happy with the label, so we immediately wrote to Gero and we are proud to say that he’s been one of the few who wasn’t afraid to invest in our raw and brutal vision of music and showed the will and courage to support our musical endeavours. After meeting him in person we immediately understood we were talking with the right guy and we are sure we will do a great job together supporting our music vision, which is something hard to describe or tag as a certain genre.. as usually we fit them all and we fit none, but that’s part of being unique! We’re pretty pumped up about the release!”
Italian technical death metal veterans are back with a vengeance and premiere today their new video and single «The Last Call».
The video is now playing in our official media partners for this premiere:
Deaf Forever (DE)
Subterraneo Webzine (SP)
Zware Metalen (NL)
Demon Reports (SB)
«The Last Call» deals with the limits overcome by human race on Earth. Humans are the only beings menacing their own habitat and triggering an evident self-destruction process. The unwise use of nuclear plants is just one of the proofs. The Chernobyl and Fukushima disasters are and will ever be out of control. Humanity is at a point of no return. Planet Earth is making the «Last Call».
"The Last Call" is taken from the coming album «1991.Bloodstained» by Italian death metal masters Gory Blister. Full album to be released worldwide on Mighty Music September 28th.
Gory Blister are an old-school death metal band originally inspired by Death and the Kreator / Pestilence tradition. It’s no coincidence they made their debut in 1991.
After their official debut Art Bleeds, the album that got the best attention from the audience was Skymorphosis, providing the band the chance to go on a big European tour, alongside Steve Di Giorgio's Sadus, and Darkane.
In the two albums released in the following years, Graveyard Of Angels and Earth-Sick, the latter is worth mentioning, featuring Karl Sanders from Nile, as a special guest on vocals in 2 songs.
Eventually, The Fifth Fury could have been the band's ultimate album, but the diehard passion for music, and the challenge to push it forward, has motivated the band to write new material, laying the foundations for the new album entitled "1991.Bloodstained". Out through Mighty Music on September 28th.
During the writing process and demoing period of this new effort, the band had the privilege to receive the artistic and impartial consulting from the Godfather of Metal, Jon Zazula (the man who discovered Metallica), with whom the guitarist Raff Sangiorgio got in touch during the promotion of his solo album “Rebirth”.
Listening to the demos, Jon Zazula made his criticism on the work in progress, which was seriously taken into consideration by the band, in order to get the best songwriting ever on this new album.
"1991.Bloodstained" now exists. It’s an album with a self-congratulatory title, because it recalls the birth date of Gory Blister, even if the lyrics, as in the past, deal with a poetic and visionary perceiving of tragedies and disasters caused by the human race on Earth.
Presenting the ultimate folk metal opera in their debut album "Faerenus" released via Rockshots Records this past June. Italian newcomers KormaK have a new music video for the album's title track premiered via New Noise Magazine at the following link: https://newnoisemagazine.com/kormak-faerenus-video/
For fans of Ensiferum, Heidevolk, Amon Amarth and Folkearth, KormaK's debut album delves into the concept of madness and what this is caused by. Indeed "Faerenus" is the ethereal place where the hidden fears come to life by creating times, places and divinities where the mind self-evolves until all the memories are mutated into obsessive nightmares with no escape.
"Faerenus" is an album of secret symbols as well as obscure meanings, ending with the lullaby "Eterea El".
