The album marks the continuation of the band's collaboration with Black Lion Records, following up their debut release "Extinct", released on the same label.
with their debut album in the back the Swedish thrash metal giants Defiatory are ready to crush everyone with their new album Hade Rising, the album features some of the heaviest and most intense headbanging thrash one ever may hear.
Spawned from the East Bay era scene Hades Rising presents 11 killer tracks of pure Bay Area Thrash.
Defiatory had this to say about the new album -
"Hades Rising carries on from the raw thrash metal sound established on the debut album, evolving in more rhythmic and melodic sessions, granting more variety without losing focus on what is important in the old school style of thrash metal."
With artwork by the artist Mika Rudin Hades Rising" will be available in CD, Digital formats. Spring 2018

Who would have thought that Global Metal Apocalypse (GMA) would be celebrating 6 years this year as an international metal music outlet, giving bands worldwide endless coverage through reviews, interviews and everything in and around the edges? Not me.
I started GMA 6 years ago with the vision of unearthing, nurturing, promoting and expanding bands coverage across all continents and the islands dotted across planet earth, with the extended view of tapping into nascent metal scenes that were either unbeknownst to the wider metal community e.g. French Polynesia or to those freshly starting out at the hands of one or two bands e.g. Iron Sliver from Gabon.
6 years later and here I am, ready to announce who has won what category(s) at the annual GMA Awards. Voting went on for two weeks and saw thousands upon thousands of votes pouring in since the voting form went live.
GMA is run solely by one person, myself. But this has not put me off from continuing the site's progression and this year I started a sister site:- Global Mainstream Arts (http://globalmainstreamarts.weebly.com/) to give non-metal artists / bands coverage. But metal will always be at the forefront.
The winners at the 2017 GMA Awards are:-
