Jinjer are widely known in the Metal scene and are mixing up everything with their fresh sound, killer live performances and energizing voice of their supreme singer Tatiana. Following the release of their Napalm Records debut “King Of Everything” and numerous festivals and club shows, the Ukraine based band just got home from their very first and super intense UK headlining tour run.
And of course, there is “No rest for the wicked”, as Jinjer will be heavily touring around Europe with the mighty Arch Enemy for the second leg of their tour in February 2018.
But for now – let’s get an exclusive look at their upcoming release of their game changing second studio album “Cloud Factory” - originally released back in 2014. Now it’s time for a Reissue with full sound, huge guitars, more boom and two exclusive live tracks!
Read what the band has to say and check out album artwork, track listing including bonus tracks and available formats below:
"When we wrote this record, little did we know how many doors it would open and where it would lead us to. From the our first shows to our first European tours and all the friends we made in between- Cloud Factory changed the future of Jinjer for the better and we haven’t looked back since… the record is very personal to us because it’s deeply inspired by the spirit of our homeland, the industrial east of Ukraine. Making it available to a wider audience is a perfect way to show what and who we are!“

Triverse Massacre are a crushing, groove heavy, death metal machine erupting onto the grim biscuit odour streets in the Northern English city of Carlisle. In 2012, their debut EP, In The Jaws Of Deceipt, was released to a great response in the underground metal community drawing comparisons with At The Gates and Lamb Of God. The follow up EP, With Bared Teeth And Truths (2014), contained 4 slabs of pit starting, abrasive metal, described by the mighty “No Clean Singing” website as “diving headfirst into a nest of pissed-off hornets”. The EP saw the band experimenting with their original influences whilst honing their songwriting to a sharpened edge. The new release from Triverse Massacre is entitled Hades and see the band, yet again, evolving their sound into something more uniquely vicious, stepping up their intensity and technical levels to truly create their own unique voice. Hades is due out via Sliptrick Records in early 2018.

Mecalimb was formed in 2005, when a group of friends in Fredrikstad, Norway, decided to start a metal band, in the vein of bands such as Pantera and In Flames, groove oriented metal with melodic elements. Ole Olsen (guitar) were the main songwriter at the time, and the only member left of the original lineup today. After some gigs in Oslo and demo recordings in 2006, the line-up changed when the bass player and drummer quit the band. During 2006-2007, Dag Kopperud (bass) and Marius Pettersen (drums) joined. Things started to escalate with the band, and in 2008, the first album was recorded, “Mechanical Recipe”, followed by a video release of the song “Still Alive”.
Mecalimb got airtime on Norwegian radio broadcast (P3) and played several gigs, up until 2010. At the start of 2010, the original vocalist, Raymond Gammelsrud, and second guitarist Torben Svendsen, quit the band. A new vocalist was hired in March 2010, Kenneth Liljegren. After the summer of 2010, the band signed with Rising Records (London) to produce a second album, which came out in early 2011, “Bound To Fall”. The band hired Robin Larsen as a second guitarist. In addition to more gigs in Norway, including support for Jorn (ex-Masterplan), the band got to play at Playa del Inglés, Gran Canaria, in late 2011, and also a support gig with Susperia. In 2012, Kenneth Liljegren left the band, and Mecalimb once again needed to change vocalist.
In came Stephan Hay, and the band started to change into a more thrashy/melodic death metal influenced style. After this, there were a long hiatus/writing phase up until December 2013, when local thrash legends, Witchhammer, did a split gig with Mecalimb in Sarpsborg. At the concert, because of health reasons, Tom Angel replaced Robin Larsen on lead guitar. Tom Angel then replaced Robin as a full-time member in early 2013. The band recorded “Chaos EP” in March 2013, released at Oak Metal Festival in August the same year, playing with bands such as Witchhammer and Circus Maximus.
More gigs in Norway followed, until the start of 2015, when Stephan Hay left the band. After some months, Robert Arntsen from Gothenburg, Sweden, joined the band. A new writing process started, and during the summer, the band started recording the third album, “XIII”, followed by several concerts with bands such as Tankard, Entrails, Enslaved, Triosphere, Mindtech etc. In the fall of 2016, black metal legends Ragnarok brought Mecalimb as support on their “Psychopathology” Europe tour, playing in Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, and the Czech Republic. Mecalimb is currently in the writing process of a new album release.

The brothers Max and Iggor Cavalera formed the legendarily trailblazing heavy metal band Sepultura as teenagers together in 1983. Across six studio albums the Brazilian punishers perfected the art of darkness and extreme music with thrash classics such as Beneath the Remains, Arise and Chaos AD, while exploring the underbelly of third world political issues and broadening the genre's horizons with an exploration of indigenous culture, culminating with the landmark Roots album in 1996. A decade after Max left Sepultura and meanwhile released seven successful records with Soulfly, the two brothers got back together in 2006 to form Cavalera Conspiracy: A bold testament to the talent and power these two possess together.

Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EL68HmZKyII&feature=youtu.be
Tristana broke up in 2016 and its members Pete, Laco and Dusan started working on a new project. Than they were joined by the drummer Elevo who had left the band Depresy and who collaborated with Tristana on their last album “Virtual Crime.“ Argentinian Christian Vidal, the member of Therion, was the last one to join the project.
In 2007 Christian Vidal got a place in “ The Road Voltures “ , the band had a purpose of returning former Mr. Big vocalist Eric Martin. In 2010 he came to Therion as a new guitarist. In 2017 he was collaborating with Russel Allen on concerts in South America.
The new project’s sound is groovy. Tuned down guitars are supported with electronic samples. Some guests were invited for the recording as well such as Thomas Vikström ( Therion, ex- Candlemass) who sang his parts in the song “ Save Me “.
"In the last days an important new member has joined the project. We will announce the name later, but I am sure it will be a nice surprise“ , said Pete Wilsen, the singer of Vox Tristanum.

Dani’s crew have meticulously pieced together a second blood-spattered batch of deranged anthems that brings vastly more colour, intensity and lyrical versatility to the band’s spectral palate. The second Devilment record makes no splintered bones about its nefarious intent, offering a bewildering torrent of disparate and demented ideas and delivering them with refined, ultra-gothic panache and several jolting doses of Dani’s trademark verbal subterfuge. Assisted by long-time collaborators Lauren Francis (keys and vocals), Colin Parks (guitar), Nick Johnson (bass) and new drummer Matt Alston, Dani has arrived at the telling moment where Devilment become a genuine force to be reckoned with.
Cavalera Conspiracy led by brothers and founding Sepultura members Max and Iggor Cavalera have unveiled first details about the release of their fourth studio album titled "Psychosis". The upcoming record is set for release on November 17th 2017 on Napalm Records and is produced by long-time friend Arthur Rizk in Phoenix, Arizona.
Max Cavalera in a recent interview with Metal Wani:
"The album right now is finished. It was produced by Arthur Rizk, our friend and a great producer - an upcoming, underground producer. And he did a great job. I love the record. There are nine songs. We've got one song with Justin from Godflesh - just a great Nailbomb, Godflesh, Cavalera kind of song. The rest is all pure thrash madness. And we had it mastered a couple of days ago by Joel Grind from Toxic Holocaust; he mastered the album. And it's great, man. It's a beast of an album. I think a lot of people are are gonna be surprised when they hear it. It's, for me, the best of all the Cavalera albums, my favourite one. And it's got the same intensity and energy of the old stuff like 'Beneath The Remains' and 'Arise'. So a lot of people are gonna be happy to hear that."
Just recently Max and Iggor have also left a message to their fans and the worldwide metal community with a first teaser and greetings from the studio. Check it out right HERE!
