Italy's Industrial-Metalcore artist Beyond The Fallen release the video for their new single 'Anima'. 'Anima' is the newest stand alone single released by Beyond The Fallen. It signifies the new direction for the band in sound.
Yuki (Guitarist) had this to say about the new single:-
"This song is our first step into a new territory. We're experimenting a lot with our music as well as our visuals, trying to achieve something different but that's still ours. You can hear there are less industrial vibes in the song, which features catchy clean singing and a lot of diversity in the mood, that goes from heavy, to pop, culminating in an epic conclusion with strings and such.
Not to mention the lyrics are in Japanese! We tried something different for the video as well, going from the dark, industrial mood of our first video (Disconnected) to a white, clean background, where everything is clear and solid. We hope to surprise our fan-base, while we try to reach out to different people who can be interested in our new style of work."
'Anima' also features guest vocals by Italian artist Utau Yume.
Born and raised in the Vatican City in 2014, Beyond The Fallen members decide to form this freaky chimera. They released a full length album, called "You Rise, We Fall" in September 2014, and then started playing gigs around Italy for a promotion which culminated at the Gothic Sofia Fest 2014, in Bulgaria.
In January 2015 they released the video for the single "Disconnected", featuring the international performer Miss Crash, already seen in Marilyn Manson's video for "Born Villain".
In July 2015 a remix by Nero Bellum from Psyclon Nine of their song "Unleash the Beast" was released as a lyric video, anticipating the release of their EP "Re:Fall", which also features a remix from Kristof Bathory from Urilia / Dawn of Ashes.
2015 ended in Bulgaria again, with Beyond The Fallen headlining the Gothic Sofia Fest 2015. In 2016, BTF plan on going back to the studio, finishing what they started with "Anima"; a new, different record set to surprise the old fans and amaze the new ones.
Finnish Industrial Metal / EBM group King Satan have released the official video for new single "Psygnosis." The video was directed, written and produced by the band's mastermind / vocalist Aleister Von Satan himself. Check it out below. The single will be included on the band's upcoming debut album, which will be released later in 2016 on Saturnal Records.
King Satan is an industrial metal / EBM band from Tampere, Finland, founded in 2015 by Aleister Von Satan (a.k.a. fra. Zetekh, also mastermind of occult Black Metal band Saturnian Mist). King Satan combines influences from a wide range of extreme metal, electro-industrial and even hard rock. Musically, the band is about complete defiance - not only towards the boundaries and conventions of metal and electro music but also the status quo of spiritual life and mental status of modern world. Nothing is sacred and no stone shall be left unturned.

Pain, the Swedish metal force led by multi-instrumentalist and producer Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Lindemann), are ready to unleash the follow-up to 2011's 'You Only Live Twice'. After the substantial success of Peter's Lindemann project with Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann, he retreated and took time to write another industrial metal statement entitled 'Coming Home'. The release of this record is scheduled for September 9th through Nuclear Blast with cover artwork created by Stefan Heilemann (Epica, Lindemann, Indica among others).
Mastermind Peter states:
"I was brainstorming about the cover with Heile again... And we got the result that I really needed. I rented a spacesuit and spinned away thereafter... Musically, the album is a development of where Pain and Lindemann ended at - more experimental than what I've ever done before. Acoustic guitars and a helping hand again from Clemens of Carach Angren with the orchestra arrangements, and some guest vocals. And Sebastian Tägtgren did a great job on the drums..."
Los Angels, CA Industrial-Black Metal artists Dawn of Ashes will release their new album Theophany on Metropolis Records.
Seamlessly blending various forms of Extreme Metal and Industrial influences, Dawn Of Ashes is music of violent power, unrelenting destruction, and cinematic scope. Kristof Bathory of Dawn of Ashes describes Theophany as " Dawn of Ashes on steroids." Theophany, is a ruthless horror show for the ears, eyes and mind. The new album shows Dawn Of Ashes in top form, with a renewed purpose that unifies the intense sonic aggression and Left Hand Path Occultism inspired lyrics that DoA has summoned in all of its incarnations.
Theophany is produced by Mick Kenney of Anaal Nathrakh, who has also produced releases for Motionless in White, Bleeding Through and The Witch Was Right. Theophany will released be May 20th on Metropolis Records.

London's most successful Industrial Metal bands of recent times The Defiled have called it a day.
This statement is taken from the band's Facebook page:-
"It is with heavy, blackened hearts, that we inform you that the time has come to lay The Defiled to rest. There is no drama or fallouts, but we have been forced to face the reality that the love of what we do is not enough to keep our black ship sailing; the continuation of The Defiled has become logistically (financially) untenable.
Thank you - you, our fans, have given us a life experience that we could have never dreamed of. From a grotty flat in north London, you have enabled us to reach places we’d previously only read or heard about, allowed us to grace stages all over the world, cheered for us at some of the worlds most prestigious festivals and granted us the opportunity to perform alongside some of our heroes. And we are in the Guinness Book Of World Records - WTF??!!
Seeing you singing our words back to us, hearing your stories on how our music has affected you, watching you lose your shit to the heavy bits and seeing the spontaneous outpouring of love when some of you linked arms and made a "circle of love” at our last London show has moved us in ways that are impossible to articulate, but just know; we love you for it.
This means we are forced to cancel our scheduled shows with In This Moment in May as well as the headline shows planned. We hate to let you down a second time in just a few months, but unfortunately this is unavoidable.
We know this is not good enough, and all of us deserve a proper send off for The Defiled. We are currently working out how to record some final songs for you, and if we can do a farewell tour before our Final Sleep. Until then...
1888 - 2016"
The band had been going through a quiet period, having last year shown a debate to whether they should release an EP or new album.
We hope they do a farewell UK tour, for The Defiled well there is 'No Place Like Home'. That place? London, UK.
Shock Industrial Metal band Fear Of Domination has released a new digi-single "Adrenaline". The single is a second taster from the upcoming album "Atlas".
Adrenaline is available for example in Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Amazon and YouTube (below).
The vocalist and lyricist Saku Solin describes the song as a compilation from the theme, the atmosphere and the style of the album.
“As a story Adrenaline is as pure Fear of Domination as possible. We are adrenaline-junkies, who love the feeling that the live shows bring.”
Solin continues, that on the other hand, "Adrenaline" is a sad story from a character, for whom everything feels like nothing.
“If you take a little peek behind the curtain, you can see a person, who has no colors, no taste or no hope in life. Therefore, he is unwillingly sucking them from the others, to get at least some of the golden adrenaline, to feel alive.”
The lead-guitarist and the main composer Johannes Niemi says that Adrenaline fits musically in the theme of the album.
“In all its gloominess it follows the theme of the end of the world, but there is a nice, lively and vivacious chorus melody.”
Atlas is the fourth album of Fear of Domination.
It is with sad regret that we have to announce that Wayne Static, formerly of Static-X has passed away at the age of 48. Wayne's publicist confirmed this with Global Metal Apocalypse early this morning.
He was always known for his spiked up hair (which took around 20 minutes to do) and his highly successful band Static-X, of whom had their song 'The Only' featured on the Need For Speed: Underground video game. After Static-X split, he pursued his own successful solo career; with a reformation of Static-X in 2012 however this was very short-lived (split in 2013).
