American black metallers Enon Chapel are ready to unleash their first, self-titled, EP.
Enon Chapel is the new side project of Meghan Wood (Crown of Asteria, Iarnvidjur) and Balan (Palace of Worms, Botanist, Ordo Obsidium).
The project was inspired by their mutual interest in the darker aspects of Victorian Era London and in particular the tale of Jack The Ripper and the burial crisis of the first part of the century which saw London cemeteries literally bursting with rotting corpses - the result of a massive population surge.
Taking influence from the raw and ravaged sound of lo-fi black metal basement dwellers such as Ildjarn, Bone Awl, Cult of Daath, Les Legions Noire, and The Black Twilight Circle, then injecting the sound further with punk and thrash elements, Enon Chapel has crafted a raw, visceral burst of darkness straight out of the crumbling crypts of Highgate Cemetery.
"Enon Chapel" will be released on February 1st, 2019, on cassette tape and Bandcamp via Acephale Winter Productions.
Indian Experimental / Groove Metallers Hostilian premiere their first track off their EP "Catalyst". The track titled 'Regressive Instincts' is packed with brutal grooves, devastating drums and monstrous vocals that hold a strong ground in what the song conveys as a message.
The band adds:-
“The EP is a study of the human condition. It's about how, deep down, we're actually like a virus, eating away the earth, even the other people and ourselves. All the good in people is just a face to show the world. There is a constant darkness in us just waiting for an opportunity to come out. This darkness is our most basic human instinct. Raping, killing, greed is all just a manifestation of what we really are deep inside. Each song talks about various aspects of this primary proclivity inside us. Everything we work for everyday is a lie. We are not meant for great things. We are only meant to end all cycles of life. A hard reboot to all life on Earth. We are a catalyst to the process that had begun long before we even stepped into this world.”

Bangalore, India based old school-rooted extreme metal act Aempyrean releases their debut EP, Fireborn, today from Cyclopean Eye Productions. Both Toilet ov Hell and Deaf Forever offered advance streaming of the entire EP prior to the release date.
"This is five tracks of non-stop aggression clocking in at a shameless 23 minutes of unrepentant attitude." — W., Toilet ov Hell
Hear Fireborn AT THIS LOCATION (courtesy of Toilet ov Hell) or AT THIS LOCATION (courtesy of Deaf Forever).
Clawing their way through the Indian underground, Aempyrean blasts forth with a whirlwind of fire and brimstone. The horde was conceptualized in early 2015 by BR (ex-Witchgoat, ex-Culminant) and Ajay N (Dhwesha). Sailesh K and Clint SS joined soon after and Avi S completed the lineup in June 2015. Influenced by '80s and early '90s Thrash and Death Metal processed through early Black metal sensibilities, Aempyrean intend to deliver nothing short of loud, savage and profane metal. They have already earned a strong following in the local underground after playing a few shows in India.
Aempyrean debut EP 'Fireborn' is out world-wide on December 05th, 2018 on CD via Cyclopean Eye Productions. Clocking in at nearly 23 and a half minutes, their EP 'Fireborn' rages with an unholy intensity that is sure to please die-hard fans of classic Morbid Angel, Morbid Scream, Absu, Destroyer 666, Possessed and even Morbid Visions-era Sepultura. Four original creations (including an interlude) and a tribute to Morbid Angel’s legendary track “Chapel of Ghouls” forebode the ominous arrival of Aempyrean in the subterranean domain of extreme metal.
Aempyrean are not here to fuck around, they are here to rip you with all the force of a chainsaw tearing through bone.

Following the release of 2016’s King of Everything, and the reissue of their groundbreaking second album Cloud Factory on Napalm Records, fans have chomping at the bit for new music from Jinjer. Now it is finally time for some heavy new tunes!
Jinjer will release a brand new 5 track EP entitled Micro – OUT ON January 11th 2019!
“Nearly two and a half years since releasing and touring for our „King of Everything“ album, we all got the urge to start writing new music again. The passion to create new songs had grown bigger than you could imagine and we converted all that energy into something special and brand new ... And it seems like we’ve created a monster and I can't wait for all of you to give it a listen!”
Through their unique and heavy sound and over the top live performances, the Ukraine-based band Jinjer have quickly become one the most talked-about names in the heavy metal landscape today. Hailed by Loudwire as “Technical, Groovy and Anthemic,” Jinjer have cemented this status even more with the release of their new single entitled “Ape.,” which has been garnering significant airplay on SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal.
Australia's The Last Martyr release new track 'Stay Awake'; taken from new EP 'Into The Black' out February 1st 2019
The Last Martyr are Melbourne's newest melodic metal sensation. Their debut single, 'Into The Black' was released late July 2018 via Heavy Magazine - and now they return with a brand new single 'Stay Awake' - and the announcement of their debut EP. The EP, which shares the name of that first single will be released on Friday February 1 2019 into all good online stores and streaming outlets. Pre-Orders for the EP will be live in digital stores soon and the 'Stay Awake' single will be live for streaming and purchase Friday November 16.
‘Stay Awake’ is the second single from their forthcoming EP and incorporates subtle synth elements whilst still encompassing The Last Martyr’s heavy, yet catchy ideals. Monica Strut, vocalist for the heavy outfit, said that "The song speaks of the doubts we all face in pursuit of our goals and in particular, the inner battle we have with ourselves often right before that goal is achieved, when we feel like giving up because we can’t see what lies ahead." The 'Into The Black' EP was Mixed and mastered by Ted Furuhashi of Melbourne's Circles.
Vocalist Monica Strut continued about the new track:- "Stay Awake is about the moment, right before you hit a massive goal - where you consider giving up. For me, most of the lyrics were written right before I found my now bandmates. I was trying to convince myself to hang in a little longer and keep my game face on. I believe when this happens, it’s the universe’s way of testing us to see how bad we want something."
The first single 'Into The Black' saw the band achieve national radio play on triple j and The Faction, as well as abroad in the US and UK within the first week of the song’s release. Since then, ‘Into The Black’ has been streamed tens of thousands of times across all platforms.
Check it out here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZA1S-hJZco&feature=youtu.be
Music Feeds said that the single 'Into The Black’ is "powered by thundering beats, dark, schizoid riffage and the powerhouse dual clean/scream assault vocals of front-dudette Monica Strut" and Depth Magazine said that the first single "...features some very promising signs. The instrumentals are very impressive, with the guitars manically twisting and turning around each other through the verses. Purring and ripping through the song, they are your salvation from the darkness, as combined with the bass they project the intended mood of the song into your very soul."
The 'Into The Black' EP will see its release on Friday February 1 2019 and will be available for pre-orders soon and single 'Stay Awake' will be live for purchase and streaming Friday November 16.
Hailing from Bangalore, India, blackened death thrash quintet Ampyrean are all set to unchain their debut EP "Fireborn" on December 01, 2018 via Cyclopean Eye Productions — the label through which Genocide Shrines, Serpents Athirst, Konflict, Jyotiṣavedāṅga, etc. initiated their initial voyage and rose to prominence in the underground metal scene.
The fifth and final track, Undying Scourge, is premiered at Decibel Magazine. “The longest track on the album,” vocalist B.R. notes, “This was also the only one where we didn’t confine ourselves to a structure. We just went where the riffs took us, and we kept it interesting with mid-paced passages intertwined with very fast riffs.”

Singaporean two-piece atmospheric doom outfit Onset's debut EP, Unstructured Dissemination, bridges a fine line between doom, post rock and even death/black metal elements. The EP was previously only made available on bandcamp and now it will see a proper release on CD format under the banner of Japanese doom specialized label Weird Truth Productions. This EP Features Sigh mastermind Mirai Kawashima and Singaporean darkwave prodigy Microchip Terror on synthnoises.
Stream "Unstructured Dissemination" On Bandcamp AT THIS LOCATION
Formed in early 2017, to simply pigeonhole Onset as a “doom band would” just be scratching the surface; the influences brought forward to the band are extremely diverse, with an almost no-holds-barred attitude and seeping in emotive passages surging into post-rock territory while still staying remotely under the radar of the doom genre itself. The tempo and the vibe embody the feeling of melancholy and dread.
The “Unstructured Dissemination” EP showcases two imposing tracks clocking at over 25 minutes in length, as well as an undaunted attempt to record them in a completely live and rehearsal-like environment. Another very integral part of the Onset sound comes from the collaborative effort of synthwave artist Microchip Terror, who provided a very cinematic approach amongst the wash of fuzzed-out guitars and wall of drums, thus giving the entire EP an incredible spectrum of soundscape. Also featuring Mirai Kawashima from Sigh on additional keys/synth on both the intro and outro tracks.
The cover artwork for “Unstructured Dissemination” was designed by Branca Studio (Paradise Lost, Marty Friedman, Foo Fighters, Confrontational, etc) teaming up with the band’s concept and vision perfectly.
“Unstructured Dissemination” will be released on CD version under Japanese seminal doom label Weird Truth Productions on November 28, 2018.
