The new EP 'The New Mythology Vol. 1' from Vancouver-based groove thrashers Revenger, has been unleashed and is streaming in its entirety! Get a fiery helping of Canadian metal at revengermusic.bandcamp.com/album/the-new-mythology-vol-1
Make sure to check out the official video for opening track "Hex" at this location.
The New Mythology Vol.1, Revenger's second studio release, is a five-song EP that expands on the band's aggressive thrash style with tracks that are more technical, visceral and direct than debut album To The Wolves. Formed in 2012, the band introduces some key members that shape the sound and vibe of this EP, which is more calculated and driven than before. Heavy guitar rhythms punctuated by a consistent thrash pulse breaks only when the groove requires and marks Revenger's particular style.
The lyrics and gritty death vocals also bring out the rage and bitterness of the subject matter which, for this EP, is slightly more conceptual and inspired by comic books and how today's mythology could become tomorrow's dogma.
With the intent of bringing together technical thrash metal and gritty groove riffs, Revenger was born in 2012 through the hands of guitarist Jean-Pierre Poulin and drummer Chris Warunki. The pair had written music together before and the combination of their styles and personalities was a natural experiment. In March 2014, Revenger debuted in Vancouver to warm reviews.
Their first independent album To the Wolves came out in September 2014 with Jordan Knute (lead guitar), Greg Cavanagh (vocals) and Darryl Greer (bass). In early 2015, Revenger's line-up evolved to include Julia Geaman (drums) and Andrew Bailey (vocals). The following year was largely focused on wood-shedding, playing local and regional shows/festivals alongside renowned bands such as Havok, Beyond Creation, Archspire, Tengger Cavalry, Stryker and Unleash the Archers.
2016 saw the introduction of Sean Parkinson on guitar (replacing Jordan Knute), and the interesting switch from guitar to bass for founder and main song writer JP Poulin. Ending the year with a 5-song EP written and ready to be recorded in early 2017, Revenger is ready to tour extensively and work tirelessly to get their music out to the world.

Polish extreme metallers Untervoid stream their highly anticipated self-titled debut EP at heavily trafficked web-portal NoCleanSinging.com.
Set for international release on January 26th via Osmose Productions, hear Untervoid's Untervoid in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Untervoid officially took form during the summer of 2015, after Destroyer (Kriegsmaschine, ex-Hate) and A. (Armageddon, ex-Lost Soul, Azarath-live) finally decided to work together and started to create music, without any compromises. It took almost a year to find a proper formula and prepare several songs.
Four of them have been selected and recorded in various locations, including Sound Division and No Solace studios. After the final mix and mastering at Satanic Audio in 2017, the debut mini-album is ready and self-titled. The duo is currently working on their new LP, which will also be released by Osmose Productions.
Says Destroyer: "I'm very proud to announce that the debut album of Untervoid is going to be released by Osmose Productions. I can just look forward to great things we're going to achieve working together."
In the meantime, hear the entirety of Untervoid exclusively HERE.

Formed back in 2010 by Stefano Saroglia (guitars) and Andrea Carratta (drums), Centripetal Force completed the line-up with John Knight, who is lead singer of UK progressive metal band Synaptik. The musical style of the band is twisted, technical, and progressive thrash metal in the vein of bands like Watchtower, old Cynic, Mekong Delta, Control Denied, Coroner, later Death, and Toxik.
In 2017, Centripetal Force recorded three songs destined to be their debut EP, entitled Eidetic, and with this, they got a deal with Xtreem Music for its release in December of the same year. The band is now working on more songs for a second EP to be released sometime in fall 2018, but that's another story...

Japanese black metal mystics Anguis Dei stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut EP, Ad Portas Serpentium, at heavily trafficked web-portal InvisibleOranges.com. Set for international release on November 24th via Svart Records, hear Anguis Dei's Ad Portas Serpentium in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Anguis Dei represents True Satanik Black Metal. It represents the extremity of hellish orchestral black metal: harsh, majestic, and spectral soundscape based on Satanism, demonology, and the true primordial black metal tradition.
The formation of this sect occurred back in MMXIV anno bastardi. Since then, its devotees have been the following four entities: Adeptus Juno - hæretical strings & darkestrations (Juno Bloodlust); Adeptus Summum Algor - blasting rituals (Adversam, Juno Bloodlust, Natassievila, etc); Adeptus Hakuja - serpentine strings (Hakuja, Cataplexy, etc); and Adeptus U.:È.:Œ.: - séance & magitation (Arkha Sva, Avsolutized…, Ahpdegma, etc). Now, in early Novembre MMXIV, Anguis Dei’s first EP Ad Portas Serpentium shall proudly be unleashed by Svart Records. It shall feature the following three sonic ceremonies on the circular laminas. I. "Maythorns Over Uroboros," II. "Angela Krudeliis Ambitiosa Nokturniis," III. "Origin ~ The Lionel." And, in addition, Ad Portas Serpentium shall shortly be followed by the first full-length entitled Angeist.
Anguis Dei is an audible form of black magick for Satan and Satanists rather than other flooding commercialised music products. It shall provide something invisible affecting your invisible world. Prepare for entering the gates and taking a dark journey into the malign realms of Satanik Magick.
The entire realm can be entered exclusively HERE, courtesy of InvisibleOranges.com.
Black / Death mavericks Coscradh stream the entirety of their highly anticipated new EP, Of Death and Delirium, at Decibel magazine's website. Set for international release on November 24th via Invictus Productions, hear Coscradh's Of Death and Delirium in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Just last year, Invictus unfurled Coscradh's self-titled debut demo, which subsequently went on to reap international acclaim. Here, Coscradh presented a new revelation in the Irish black/death metal underground, and yet another extremely promising newcomer fostered by Invictus. An auspicious start, with its ever-swarming sensation of hideousness and eldritch dread, but along comes Of Death and Delirium to eclipse that.
Every element of Of Death and Delirium takes its predecessor to more extreme lengths. Playing, production, songwriting, atmosphere: verily, this is the severest Metal of Death given fuller flight and more far flung into the great abyss. Gnarled and gnawing, possessive of a molten muscularity that always threatens to explode into chaos, Coscradh now finesse their towering creations with a keen attention to nuance; underneath, the primordial waters of time eternal swirl ever more dangerously and direly. Spewing forth three despair-ridden odes to suffering, violence, and madness, Of Death and Delirium confesses a cacophony of death metal majesty that soundtracks horrors seen and unseen - and within, Coscradh stand intrepid, in control but fatefully locked into a state of primal psychosis.
Titled truly, as both manifesto and momentum, Of Death and Delirium is Coscradh's first grand strike upon the world stage. Feel its entire wrath exclusively HERE, courtesy of Decibel, North America's only monthly metal magazine.
Heavy metal cult Lucifer's Hammer stream the entirety of their highly anticipated new mini-album, Victory is Mine, at Decibel magazine's website. Shadow Kingdom Records shall be releasing it on November 24th for the CD and cassette tape formats, while the 12" vinyl version shall be released on December 29th. Hear Lucifer's Hammer's Victory is Mine in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Aptly titled, Victory is Mine follows soon after the widespread critical acclaim afforded last year's Beyond the Omens debut full-length, further proving that this Chilean heavy metal force simply cannot be stopped! But here, on Victory is Mine, Lucifer's Hammer show more sides to their enviable arsenal and go down a darker path. Where Beyond the Omens burst forth with a brightness that could've come from radio metal circa 1984, Victory is Mine explodes with an immediacy that's moodier and more epic. Still well within the realm of classic, post-NWOBHM heavy metal, here Lucifer's Hammer deliver four winding epics that alternately pulse with steely passion and drift like lingering fog. Whereas Beyond the Omens could very well be their "party" record, Victory is Mine is more like the party's aftermath - and Lucifer's Hammer is guiding the revellers to the grave. But despite a subtly pronounced profusion of doom, Victory is Mine nevertheless retains the addicting energy for which the band became so beloved on their demo and debut album. For heavy metal is an eternal fight, and Victory is Mine!
Engage in that eternal fight in its entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of Decibel, North America's only monthly metal magazine. Pre-order info for all three formats can be found HERE at Shadow Kingdom's Bandcamp.

Bangladeshi death metal power trio Nekrohowl unleashed their debut EP "Epitome of Morbid" at their EP launching gig. Offering an hour long set-list, the band has announced their final gig of the year 2017.
Decibel Magazine exclusively Streamed the entire EP along with an interview, which can be found at this location.
“On their debut EP, Epitome of Morbid, Nekrohowl unleash four songs (plus an intro) of filthy death metal rife with technical riffs, pounding rhythm section and cavernous vocals” —Decibel Magazine.
The Band Comments: "The whole EP is written based on the concept of personifying 'death' as a supreme entity with sheer omnipotence and ominous rage against all mortals. It is believed that death is inevitable, divine and the only truth to be embraced."
Originally started as a death metal quartet in the crypt of Dhaka, Bangladesh, Nekrohowl was formed a year ago by the members of acclaimed local acts like Abominable Carnivore, Dissector, Enmachined and Homicide. A death evoking, rotten sounding rehearsal demo was soon manifested, which was followed by an oversea live annihilation on the other side of the Bengal — Kolkata, India. With the vilest form of sound and high-powered live performances, they have marked their place as a formidable force in the realm of South Asian extreme metal music.
Earlier in the year, the band encountered with line-up issues, when the vocalist and drummer had to left the band, but that did not stop Nekrohowl from blazing fiercely; Warmonger (Warhound, Ex: Orator) as a replacement in the position of drum-hammering and Obliterator taking over the charge of vocal duty turned them as a power trio, and this incident marks a significant step forward for the band. Climbing to the peak of their powers with this monstrous line-up, the bestial trio embarked on a mini-tour, named as “Agonize and Excruciate Tour 2017”, to support Japanese death metal maestro Desecravity at their Dhaka, Kolkata and Shilong live dates.
Debut EP “Epitome of Morbid” is undeniably the most anticipating metal release of 2017 from the country. With 05 tracks (including an intro), clocking in at around 20 minutes, the EP incorporates the captivating intricacy of Suffocation, sheer gruesomeness of Autopsy, belligerent tone of Immolation, vitriolic intensity of Morbid Angel, demon invoking power of Hellhammer, and malefic darkness of Dead Congregation. The song structures clearly demonstrate the members’ sole object of the exercise, and it is nothing but to play the hard-hearted form of death metal music. Whereas many contemporary old school rooted extreme metal bands from the subcontinent fail to sustain the primitive atmosphere because of the production, Nekrohowl has cautiously maintained that dark, rotten vibe of old school death metal within these tracks.
Limited number of copies of the EP were released locally in digipak format, which will be followed by cassette issue from Malaysian label Diabolicurst Productions, and cd, cassette and vinyl release from American label Slaugherhouse Records. An EP launching gig took place in Dhaka during the local digipak release date on 30th September, 2017.
Portuguese war-horde Satanize stream the entirety of their forthcoming Death Mass Execution EP at heavily trafficked web-portal CVLTNation.com. Now set for international release on August 7th via Larval Productions on 7" vinyl format, stream Satanize's Death Mass Execution in its entirety exclusively HERE.
A special EP comprising three exclusive tracks, Death Mass Execution is a quick 'n' concise attack capping more than a decade of Satanize terrorizing the underground. Hailing from the fertile Portuguese black metal scene, Satanize forego their scene's usual withering rawness for a righteously barbaric assault on the senses. Pounding and pulsing, overwhelming its gibbering intensity, Death Mass Execution ably approximates its title: sonic slaughter abounds at every chaotic, careening turn. And yet, for however jagged their bestial blackgrind may be, Satanize wield their physicality with an almost martial strictness - and escape is never an option, only submission. Completed by a noise intro by Erratix (Rick Smith of Caveman Cult / Torche and David Smith of Shitstorm / Mehkago NT) and cover artwork by Sickness666, Death Mass Execution is sure to satisfy maniacs of Black Witchery, Conqueror, Morbosidad, and especially old Spear of Longinus and Impiety.

Chilean black metallers Praecognitvm are streaming the entirety of their debut demo, Inalienable Catharsis, at Decibel magazine's website. on cassette tape. Set for international release today on cassette tape via Iron Bonehead Productions, stream Praecognitvm's Inalienable Catharsis in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Self-released digitally last year, Inalienable Catharsis so impressed Iron Bonehead with its stout 'n' surging night-sky majesty that the label simply had to release it worldwide on physical tape format. Although Praecognitvm hail from the violent black/death hotbed of Chile, theirs is a sound rooted in classic black metal mysticism, emitting boundless atmosphere whilst remaining tangibly physical, albeit in a more spectral manner. And at four songs in 27 minutes, Inalienable Catharsis is structured in such a manner to weave its magic subtly and patiently, taking deeper root as the record plays on. Indeed, between the band's songwriting and the robust recording they receive here, Inalienable Catharsis is a true record and not merely a "demo" - and it's only the beginning for the duo. Achieve Inalienable Catharsis with Praecognitvm exclusively HERE, courtesy of Decibel, North America's only monthly metal magazine.
