From Kill-town with hate... Denmark's Undergang will release its newest album later this month on Dark Descent Records. Misantropologi marks the band's fourth - and most devastating - full-length to date.
Following the album's release,Undergang will invade the U.S. for the month-long 'Make America Death Again' tour with California's Necrot (dates listed below).
For a taste of the blood to spill, Decibel Magazine has posted the premiere of album track "Skåret I Småstykker." The song is now playing HERE.
Dark Descent Records will release Misantropologi June 23 on CD and digital formats. The vinyl edition will come via Me Saco Un Ojo Records. Pre-order the album now at darkdescentrecords.bandcamp.com
Filthy. Disgusting. Heavy-as-fuck. Downtuned. Rotten. Foul stench. These are just some of the words Undergang have been associated with since their debut album back in 2010. Undergang's new album Misantropologi isn't just cementing those assessments but actually adds to it groove and even more filth.
Recorded last year at Earhammer studios in Oakland (with Greg Wilkinson who recorded their previous album) immediately after their month-long US tour with label mates Spectral Voice, Misantropologi represents the first recording with their newest member Sam Osborne from Funebrarum. These sewer-bred bastards fourth full-length is once again the antithesis of all of those who wish to bring death metal back to the sunlight.
With vocals reaching insane low-depths unheard since the glorious days of the early Finnish scene (no wonder the last track is subtitled 'Tribute to Disgrace'!) that reek of putrefaction à la early Carcass lyrics still in their native Danish, sludgy and primitive riffs and to-the-point songs, this is as dark and brutish as it can be. Nearly 30 minutes of audio horror once again mixed and mastered by Cruciamentum's Dan Lowndes.
After the 2013 demo "The Crackling of Embers", Danish atmospheric black metallers SUNKEN are ready to take the world by storm with their debut full-length "Departure", an album where the band showcases once again their potency and songwriting skills, promising to cause an impact and lasting atmosphere.
"Departure" is set to be released on May 26th, 2017 via Triton's Orbit (home of Vinterbris, Akasava and Riti Occulti).
Cover artwork and tracklisting as follows:
The band comments:
"Our debut album has been long underway. 'Departure' shows a more matured, unique and experimental Sunken, with a more honest approach to songwriting, sound and expression. The writing of the album has been a long journey, with new and interesting sources of inspiration and contributions from many different musicians. All of this made the album what it is today. We're finally ready for our Departure."
The UK metal scene is filled with a lot of talented bands, and we are so very lucky to add Repulsive Vision to the growing Mighty Music family!
Matt Davidson: "Repulsive Vision are beyond thrilled to be working with Mighty Music and proud to be a part of their roster. Their support and understanding so far has been an amazing help to us and we are eager to bring our plans to fruition with this union".
“Look Past the Gore and See The Art” A mantra that embodies the very soul of UK Death metal band, Repulsive Vision. The battle cry of anti censorship and open mindedness that influences the very meaning of the band itself.
Heavily inspired by video nasties and their controversial history, this vicious four piece is a relentless assault of punk fueled old school death metal in the vein of Obituary, Carcass, Napalm Death and Entombed.
Formed in 2010, Repulsive Vision has evolved over the years, eventually maintaining a strong current line-up consisting of Dan McEwan (Vocals), Mark Kirby (Bass), Gary Young (Drums) and Matt Davidson (Guitars).
Recorded in the depths of Newcastle at First Avenue Studios and mixed/mastered by Dean Thompson, “Look Past the Gore and See the Art” is a work built on frustration and old school inspirations to bring an honest and unstoppable piece of grinding death metal.
The long awaited debut album “Look Past The Gore and See The Art” shall be released in stores and on all digital platforms from the 31st of March 2017.
Amaranthe will kick off their first North American headline tour in support of their latest album Maximalism on February 10 in Houston, with support from Failure Anthem, Citizen Zero, Cypher 16, and Smash Into Pieces.
The trek snakes through the U.S. and Canada, wrapping on March 11 in Reading, Pennsylvania.
To herald the fact that they will be crashing the U.S. shores once again, the band has released the new video for "Boomerang." Watch it HERE.
Guitarist Olof Morck says
"It is finally time to release our brand new video for 'Boomerang', an Amaranthe take on the classic heist movie! Directed by the legendary Patric Ulleaus, it is everything you have come to expect of an Amaranthe video and much more! Perhaps the most ambitious video from the band so far, it is packed to the brim with action, glitter and glamour - you can try to bring us down, but we'll come around, like a Boomerang!"
In other Amaranthe news, singer Jake E. has confirmed his exit from the band. Below is his statement on the matter.
"After eight years and four albums, I have decided to leave Amaranthe. I am extremely proud of the band and what we've accomplished together.
"Amaranthe have the most AMAZING fans and they have given me so much during the years, which I am extremely grateful for. I want to thank them all for always supporting me during the highs and the lows - without YOU we would be NOTHING. "Thank you for these years and I hope to meet you again soon!"

Forever Still have also just unleashed a new video for single 'Miss Madness' - watch it above
"The clip for 'Miss Madness' was shot at the oldest amusement park in the world over the course of 6 months. Half of it in the summer time and the other in the winter time to portray the contrast filled dream and the brutal reality for 'Miss Madness' herself", singer Maja Shining remembers.
But shooting the video in the middle of the crowded amusement park 'Bakken' was of course not particularly easy - you have to let yourself go, ignore the staring people and Maja laughs when she's thinking back to the scenery: "...haha, it was exactly as horrible as you can imagine!"
And since the madness is just about to begin, Forever Strill's debut album Tied Down is now available for pre-order. The physical copy will be a special CD+DVD digipack:
If you prefer to get a digital version:
Amaranthe, the cutting edge Swedish / Danish rock band with the triple lead vocal attack, have dropped "That Song" from their upcoming album Maximalism, out October 21 via Spinefarm.

5. On the Rocks
9. Break Down and Cry
"The time has come to unveil 'That Song' to the world," said guitarist Olof Morck. "Showcasing a new side of Amaranthe, the song combines an anthemic arena riff with an irresistibly groovy flow, creating maybe the most unique Amaranthe track yet! Describing the strife and hardships that follow with trying to pursue your dreams, 'That Song' embodies the turning point in your life when your direction becomes clear. So stomp your feet and clap your hands to 'That Song'!"
Maximalism is the follow-up to 2014's breakthrough Massive Addictive.
Refusing to be pinned down by genre or convention, Amaranthe have consistently pursued the less-travelled path, blending different sounds and styles to create a signature hybrid approach. Maximalism sees their collective wide-angle vision laid out with greater skill and conviction than ever before.
The European tour begins on 25.Oct.
