Swedish extremists Third Storm have unleashed a new track from their upcoming full-length album, A Grand Manifestation. The song, titled "As the Stars Watched the Birth of Eternity," is a scathingly violent example of the old-school black/death onslaught fans can expect from A Grand Manifestation.
Stream "As the Stars Watched the Birth of Eternity" at https://youtu.be/D8oEoOCZJtw.
An intense hybrid of black, death, doom and thrash, A Grand Manifestation is the continuation of 2015's Taritiya Me, a two-song, 26-minute EP that welcomed Third Storm back from a decades-long hiatus.
Third Storm will release A Grand Manifestation November 9 on Dark Descent Records.
Here comes the second strike of Unleashed’s new album. It’s the title track of The Hunt for White Christ, which will be out on October 26th via Napalm Records!
Singer and bass player Johnny Hedlund explains the story behind the new song:
“After the despicable acts of terror against women and children in the South, and the devastation of the villages (as seen on the album cover), The Midgard Warriors decide to hunt down White Christ, all the way to Jorsala if need be.”

When it comes to Swedish Death Metal, the traditional Stockholm way and death metal per se, there is one band you have to mention: Unleashed! Formed in 1989 by vocalist / bass player Johnny Hedlund, Unlheased have been delivering supreme death metal from day one. Dealing with Viking traditions and values, and honing their craft, they have become extreme metal pioneers, musically and lyrically, inspiring legions of other bands with their sound.
The Hunt for White Christ is the fourth album in the continued story line of the World of Odalheim and their Midgard warriors – a story authored by Johnny Hedlund himself, comprising of the past, present, and what Hedlund’s deems as the future of the Viking traditions and values. The album was recorded in the spring of 2018 at Chrome Studios, and does not simply mark the Swedes` 13th full-length album: it also solidifies the bands impact on history, paving the way to their 30th anniversary in 2019! Three decades of metal onslaught, and they have neither lost their bite, nor their love for pure death metal mayhem!

The most hard-hitting Swedish thrash metal band ever Carnal Forge is back and has signed a record deal with Swedish label ViciSolum Productions. The band’s new album “Gun to mouth salvation” will overtake the world on January 25, 2019. “Gun to mouth salvation” is Carnal Forge´s first album since 2007 monster release “Testify for My Victims”.
Founder Jari Kuusisto says;-
“I quit Carnal Forge after the last full-length album Testify for my victims because I was just feed up with the music industry and everything about being in the band. It took some years but I felt I was kind of missing CF, so I talked to my brother Petri and I called up Lars in 2013 and said. Hey, let's fuckin' do it! He had been waiting since the hibernation in 2010 so it was a Go! right on the spot. We made this mini CD to wake up the corpse and we did some shows but then we decided to not do any more shows until we had a new album and new fresh songs to play. It's a long boring story why it took so long time, but finally here we are now, ready to kick some serious ass again! And with us we also have Lawrence Dinamarca (Nightrage, Loch Vostok) and new vocalist Tommie Wahlberg.”
The Swedish thrash quintet Carnal Forge was formed by guitarist Jari Kuusisto in 1997 in Sala, Sweden. Since then the band has released 7 full length albums (ViciSolum, Candlelight Records, Century Media Records, WAR), 1 live DVD (Metal Mind Productions), toured in Europe, USA and Japan together with acts like Testament, Exodus, Halford, Nile, Amon Amarth, The Haunted, Immortal, Primal Fear, Pro Pain. Carnal Forge has played festivals like Wacken Open Air (DE), Sweden Rock Festival (SE), Summer Breeze (DE), Brutal Assault (CZ), Kaltenbach Open Air (A), Aalborg Metal Festival (DK), Fuck the commerce (DE), Metal Fest URI (CH), Pressure Fest (DE), Fury Fest (FR), Metal Meltdown (USA) etc.

Night Crowned is the degenerated infant of the current and the past members of The Crown, Dark Funeral, Nightrage and Cipher System. Their debut mini CD is slated for the worldwide release on November 30, 2018 via Black Lion Records.
"“Nocturnal Pulse” is a dynamic affair, in which elements of black metal and death metal play a role, in which raw, howling yells, cold roars, and skin-splitting shrieks share the vocals, and in which the changing patterns of the music conjure feelings of both grievous melancholy and blood-rushing glory", No Clean Singing is currently streaming the second track, Nocturnal Pulse, from the album.
Hear "Nocturnal Pulse" AT THIS LOCATION; Courtesy of No Clean Singing
In the frozen part of Europe's northernmost realm, a new slithering seed is festering at the heart of the Swedish scene — known as Night Crowned. A spawn formed from an unholy communion between the current and the previous members of the underground elite such as The Crown, Dark Funeral, Nightrage and Cipher System, this infestation is set to grow from a rumoured disease into a full-scale pandemic.
Night Crowned's musical vision is as clear as it is haunting and putrid; a reawakening of the sounds dormant from the most influential acts and masterpieces of the Scandinavian ‘90s, despite having advantages of a cutting edge, surgically precise production.
Despite hatching a combined catalogue of over twenty full-length albums, the seasoned and battle-hardened veterans of Night Crowned are still hungry like a gluttonous monster to procreate the dire melody charged blackened death music.
“Humanity Will Echo Out” is the first taste of Night Crowned’s sonic benefaction. This three-track-filled EP will be out on CD and in digital format through Black Lion Records on November 30, 2018.
The Swedish band, Desolator, was originally going in a doom/death direction, but changed into an old school death metal band after some full band rehearsals. After many long and hard considerations, the name Desolator was approved.
Black Lion Records are pleased to inform that Swedish Old schoolers Desolator's debut EP "Spawn of Misanthropy" was re-issued by the label on CD early this month.
Jonas Bergkvist - Bass, Vocals ( Ending Quest, Soliloquium, Wolfcross)
Stefan Nordström - Guitars, Vocals ( Ending Quest, Soliloquium)
Joakim Rudemyr - Guitars, Vocals ( Within the Fall)
Victor Parri Drums - ( Eosphorus, Hadriel, Isole, The Curse, Valkyrja, ex-Dark Forest of North, ex-One Hour Hell, ex-Kraanium (live), ex-Mephorash (live), ex-Skitarg (live), ex-Sterbhaus (live), ex-Within the Fall (live) )

Death metal mavericks Maligner stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut album, Attraction to Annihilation, at heavily trafficked web-portal NoCleanSinging.com. Set for international release on August 31st via Blood Harvest Records and Helter Skelter Productions, hear Maligner's Attraction to Annihilation in its entirety exclusively HERE.
One of the most promising hordes Blood Harvest have come across in some time, Maligner are a deathrashing power-trio hailing from the label's home-town of Malmö, Sweden. To date, Maligner have a two-song digital promo released during the autumn of 2016 and then, a few months later, the five-song Demon EP, which Blood Harvest released on cassette tape and digital formats. Bolstered by the attention afforded Demon, the trio truly come into their own on Attraction to Annihilation.
For a debut album, Attraction to Annihilation is as fully formed as they come. Maligner may be only entering their third year of existence, but the attention to craft and class across this eight-song firestorm is seriously the work of veterans - but, of course, ones not yet complacent with their ideas and especially execution. Right from the very first notes of opener "Oath-bound," Maligner explode with a dazzling array of fleet-footed 'n' finesse death metal in a most late '80s mould, back when actual songwriting mattered most and bands like Death, Sadus, and Dark Angel ruled the underground. Indeed, even nomenclature like "deathrash" didn't really exist; it was simply all METAL, just darker and more deathly than what the aboveground was proffering. But, Maligner are no mere retro retread: their compositional prowess is in a league of its own, and their attention to the finer details of aggression bespeaks a maturity that thankfully isn't neutering. In fact, the longer this 31-minute maelstrom rolls on, the more dizzying it becomes, possessing both body and spirit in a grand celebration of destruction and death.
Try as you may, there's just no denying Maligner's Attraction to Annihilation! Stream it in its entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of NoCleanSinging.com. Preorder info for the CD can be found HERE, and preorder for the vinyl can be found HERE.
