Italian Horror Death Metallers Gravesite set release date for new Xtreem Music album; reveals first track
The second album of Italian horror death metallers Gravesite is ready! Entitled Neverending Trail of Skulls, the album is set for international release on August 1st via Xtreem Music. The album was recorded by Umberto Furlan at Black Sun Studio between October 2016 and February 2017, with a later mastering by Daniel Lowndes at Resonance Sound Studio and topped off by the artwork of Matteo Zanella.
Gravesite was formed back in 2014 by members from other bands like Haemophagus, Undeed Creep, and Cancer Spreading among others, and released a demo entitled Obsessed by the Macabre. This led to their signing with Xtreem Music, who released their debut album Horrifying Nightmares... in July 2015, which was formed by nine tracks of old-fashioned death metal in the best tradition of bands like Autopsy, Grave, Death, and Carcass.
In the meantime, check out the title track to Neverending Trail of Skulls at Xtreem Music's Soundcloud HERE and also at the label's official YouTube channel HERE.
Italian thrash metal act Haniwa has released a new album called "Helleven" via Qua Rock Records. The music is rapid, groovy and catchy, at times with melodic openings. This album is the result of an hard work, made of sweat, passion and attitude, where Haniwa unleashed all their experience and musical impetuousness. The first video taken from the single "Haniwa" will be available soon.
About the new album, the band says: “We have composed 11 songs where we believe that our unusual and personal vision of the music is contained, including the listening of totally different music genres in decades but represented in the Haniwa’s way. Haniwa means brutality, aggression, melody and rhythm with a fresh and direct attitude, which takes natural inspiration from the single elements background, but the explosive mix goes beyond the sum of them. The album is the evolution of an instinctive EP, played by impulse, which allowed the band to create a synergy and a compositional maturity that permitted within a year to conceive Helleven”.
Asphodelia have officially announced that they have inked a deal with The Flaming Arts as their worldwide management and booking agency, alongside many international artists of their great roster.

Here is the cover (once again work of the talented Luca Antoniazzi with the great Giovanna Pugliano's designs) and the definitive tracklist:
The Desire is the first single extract from the forthcoming album Insights by Distant Landscape. It’s a beautiful, melodic, sweeping track full of discordant guitar, layered vocals and simple harmony. The ever-moving images within the video represent distorted memories and the rushing of time. While outside everything changes, inside “The desire is still the same”.
Insights | Released worldwide via Sliptrick Records on May 23rd
