Hell's Guardian released their new album, entitled "As Above So Below" on September 14th 2018. The album has been recorded by Media Factory Esine studios of Fabrizio Romani and mixed and mastered by Michele Guaitoli (Temperance, Kaledon) at the Groove Factory Studios in Udine and hosts singers like Adrienne Cowan (Winds of Plague, Light & Shade), Marco Pastorino (Temperance) also as vocal producer and Ark Nattlig Ulv (Ulvedharr).
The band comments:
"Three years after the release of our last record, we can say that this new album will mark a musical turning point for us, abandoning the fantasy themes and focusing on real issues that life can reserve in each one of us. All this with a sound that is closer and closer to the typical Scandinavian Melodic Death mould with tight rhythms, guitar riffs which are less epic but with impact, and orchestrations designed by Samuele Faulisi (Atlas Pain), from typical classical instruments up to modern parts with synths, more focused collaborations, from the guest singers to the musicians who collaborated with us in the studio, they made everything more natural and spontaneous without forcing, all with a powerful mix."
Below is the tracklist and cover designed by Gustavo Sazes (Amaranthe, Kamelot, Arch Enemy, Machine Head)
Italian heavy metallers Scala Mercalli have announced their new album, coming out in January 2019.
The album will be entitled “Indipendence” and will be about the first part of Italian Risorgimento, from Naple’s Reign ruled by King Murat until Mazzini’s Roman Republic, including episodes on Mille (The Expedition of the Thousand) and Brigandage, with some of their main characters. The band will wear the new uniform inspired by the units, from north to south, that in the above-mentioned period fought side by side with the people and contributed with hard sacrifices to build Italian nation. More details will be revealed soon!
The band about new album:
“This project is about some events we consider of great importance in our country’s history, because they remind us of how important it has been, for a people dominated for years by foreign powers, to fight for ideals of unity and freedom, and reminds also that freedom, in every form, is never a gift but has always to be conquered fighting together. Yesterday as today!”
This example applies to every people or nation that wants to be truly free!

The Scars In Pneuma (“The Scars in the Soul” – from “πνεύμα”, ancient Greek word for “breath”, “breath of life” and, in a religious context, for “spirit”, “soul”) recorded "The Path Of Seven Sorrows" at Elfo Studio in Tavernago (PC), Italy; mixing and mastering took place at Goblin Studio in Piacenza, Italy, with Daniele Mandelli at the helm.
The striking cover artwork is "The Fire at Night" painting by Francisco Goya (1794).

The Scars In Pneuma initially started as a solo project of Lorenzo Marchello (vocals / guitars / bass) in the beginning of 2017, and it turned to a band when trusted musicians Francesco Lupi (guitars) and Daniele Valseriati (drums) joined the ranks later during the same year.
Musically, The Scars In Pneuma provides it's own particular black metal style, which can be defined as a mix of black metal, death metal with melodic riffing and epic passages, with a touch of doomy mood. Some bands that can be cited as inspiration are Dissection, Mgła, Be'lakor, Rotting Christ, Forgotten Tomb, Blut Aus Nord, Emperor.
Lyrically, The Scars In Pneumais all about themes such as dealing with your own demons, life's biggest regrets, the passing of time, the beloved people we lost.

Stunning Argentinian progressive metal band Lord Divine have just inked a deal with Fighter Records for the worldwide release of their upcoming fourth album, Facing Chaos, scheduled for international release on February 5th, 2019.
Lord Divine was born in 2003 in the city of Rosario, Argentina, releasing a demo during that same year and being followed by two albums: Where the Evil Lays ('04), Donde Yace el Mal (Spanish version of their first album) ('05), and ...in Disgrace ('07). During these years, Lord Divine toured the country presenting both albums, including a show at the Obras Stadium with Nightwish and also Symphony X at the Flores Theatre. The third studio album, Imágenes ('14), was an experimental work only released digitally.
Determined to break frontiers of their country and make their music known to the world, Lord Divine embarked on this new project, the fourth studio album Facing Chaos, containing 11 tracks of impeccable technical quality and a modern sound. Vocals were recorded by Diego Valdez (Dream Child, Iron Mask, Electronomicon). As guests, the incredible Mark Boals (Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Ring of Fire, Dokken, Royal Hunt) recorded vocals for the song "The Darkest Light," and Julian Barrett (Tarja, Asspera) did a guitar solo on "Divided." Cover artwork was made by Federico Boss from Abstract Chaos (Fallcie, Carnal Forge, Faca Crevaro, Reactive Delusion, V.I.D.A).
International release date for Lord Divine's Facing Chaos will be February 5th, 2019 through Fighter Records on CD format. In the meantime, check out the new track "I Am" HERE at Fighter Records' official YouTube channel.
Veil of Conspiracy are ready to release their debut album Me, Us and Them via Revalve Records on February 8th.
The Band has gone through different musical phases to reach a more mature and defined sound in 2017, composing songs increasingly influenced by an obscure but at the same time elegant and refined mood. Inspired by big names like Katatonia, Opeth, Nevermore and Soen, Veil of Conspiracy is a unique musical reality in the Italian metal scene, merging the Nordic power of the guitars with the attention to the melody and a progressive elegance, without neglecting the importance of the lyrics.
The main theme of “Me, Us and Them” is the mental illness in his darkest and most evil expressions. Schizofrenia, depression, sorrow and desperation howl through obscure riffs and moaning arpeggios, powerful rhythm sections and a union of dramatic clean and desperate screaming vocals, even recalling the ‘70s prog rock experiences.
The Swedish melodic progressive metal band Darkwater will release their new album "Human" on March 1st in Europe and North America via Ulterium Records. The album will be available on CD, 2LP and digital.
"Human" won't leave fans of melodic metal or progressive metal disappointed. The songs are heavier, more melodic and atmospheric than before and the band worked really hard on tweaking the ten songs and over 76 minutes of playing time into perfection. Jacob Hansen (Evergrey, Volbeat, Amaranthe) was chosen to mix and master the album and he did a fantastic job which resulted in the best sounding Darkwater album to date.
The lyrics of the album welcomes you into a world of you and me, how we affect the world around us and the struggles we deal with as humans.
Don't miss out on "Human", a perfect album for fans of melodic progressive metal and bands like Circus Maximus, Seventh Wonder and Evergrey!
