Mexican Symphonic Metal group Cabrakaän have released a new official video for the track Calm In My Storm, taken from their forthcoming EP Cem Anahuac My Home, set for release via Sliptrick Records on August 27th.
Here’s the bands synopsis: “Calm In My Storm represents the spirit of our beloved ones that are no longer here, though always watch over us. The ones whose memories give us the strength to keep going no matter what. In the video, the main Character chases that spirit in the cold, the only thing she has left from it, is a memory that she keeps all the time next to her heart (it’s represented with the mud figure of Vucub-‐Camé, lord of the Mayan underworld). In the end, the spirit appears in front of her and they become one forever.”
Recorded at MacEwan University and North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton, AB, Canada. Thanks to the production team from MacEwan University in Edmonton, AB, Canada. Special thanks to the guest bassist that appears on this video, Madi Myhre.

Slovakian black metal vanguad Malokarpatan stream the entirety of their a special new EP Cesta podzemnými sálami Kovovlada at heavily trafficked web-portal NoCleanSinging.com. Set for international release on April 8th via Sun & Moon Records on 7" vinyl format, hear Malokarpatan's Cesta podzemnými sálami Kovovlada in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Simply put, Malokarpatan are Slovakian black metal both at its finest and most adventurous. Since the band's humble beginnings in 2014, the band have swiftly and almost effortlessly built a challenging body of work with two now-cult, critically acclaimed albums. A grass-roots movement if there ever was one, nearly everyone agrees: there's simply no other nowadays black metal band who are so vividly able to straddle staunch traditionalism and boundless adventurousness quite like Malokarpatan.
Ever restless, the maverick quintet return with a special two-song EP, Cesta podzemnými sálami Kovovlada. Originally self-released on digital format, Sun & Moon steps forward to unleash these two brand-new songs on physical format, as they so deserve, which are strictly exclusive to this release and will not appear on a future album. The material here deals with a mythological theme of Kovovlad – master of the underworld and its treasures, who abducts a maiden from the world above to become his bride. This is reflected directly in the music, with the first ambient part painting a psychedelic picture of strange underground halls and the second metal part expressing the darkness of the maiden's fate, left forever to dwell in this world of night.
While Cesta podzemnými sálami Kovovlada comprises two songs, let it be emphasized that this is not just a mere "single" but rather a thematically unified work that should be considered an EP. But, whether long-format or short, Malokarpatan refuse to be shackled in the creativity, and Cesta podzemnými sálami Kovovlada is yet another sterling 'n' stirring chapter in their increasingly bold story.
In the lead-up to its 7" vinyl release next Monday, hear Cesta podzemnými sálami Kovovlada in its entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of InvisibleOranges.com.

LA death metal cult Crematory Stench stream the entirety of their highly anticipated second EP, Grotesque Deformities, at Revolver magazine's website. Set for international release on February 15th via Blood Harvest Records (distributed & marketed by Regain Records) sets February 15th on cassette tape and 12" vinyl formats, hear Crematory Stench's Grotesque Deformities in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Hailing from Southern California, Crematory Stench formed in 2014 and released their self-titled debut EP two years later. Then a trio, the band's sound was a thrashing take on late '80s death metal, largely nodding to early Death and Pestilence. Now expanded to a quartet and has been a prolific force on the live front, Crematory Stench's attack has but gotten nastier, gnarlier, and creepier. One could argue that with Grotesque Deformities, they have entered the very early '90s, owing as they do to the sounds coming from Sweden then. Either way, it's utterly hellish.
But, on evidence of this new second EP, Crematory Stench are just getting started and will undoubtedly get darker and more disgusting. Jump on their bandwagon now and witness their Grotesque Deformities! Jump fully on that bandwagon exclusively HERE, courtesy of Revolver, North America's premier rock & metal authority. Preorder info for both formats can be found HERE at Blood Harvest's Bandcamp.
Edged Circle Productions has set April 5th as the international release date for Teleport's The Expansion on CD format. Originally released on cassette tape during the autumn of 2018 but selling out extremely quickly, The Expansion so impressed Edged Circle that the label simply HAD to release the record on a wider scale - and later this year, will release Teleport's highly anticipated debut album!
One of the most singular bands orbiting the death metal underground in the past decade, Teleport formed in 2010 in Ljubljana, Slovenia and promptly set course for a prodigious schedule of self-released demos, each one perfecting their slithering, shapeshifting sound. Undoubtedly inspired by Gorguts, Voivod, and Australia's Stargazer and yet finding contemporaries in Blood Incantation and Sacriphyx, Teleport truly hit their stride with last year's The Expansion. As aptly titled as the band's moniker, The Expansion weaves a winding, oft-bewildering path across its three-track/21-minute runtime. Sulfurous to the very end, one could pin tags like "prog" or "tech" or simply "that's crazy, man!" onto Teleport's style of death metal, but within their attacking angularity exist actual hooks - malformed and mesmerizing, of course, but hooks to hold onto as you sink deeper into their maelstrom...
And now, under the aegis of Edged Circle, that maelstrom will open wider and devour more listeners whole with Teleport's imminent debut album for the label. In the meantime, prepare for The Expansion and get your mind blown!
A full HD stream of The Expansion can be heard HERE. Preorder info for the new Edged Circle edition can be found HERE.
