Spanish death metallers Bloodhunter have inked a deal with Xtreem Music for the release of their upcoming second album, coming this fall.
Formed back in 2008, Bloodhunter is one of Spain's leading death metal forces. Led by virtuoso guitarist Fenris and vocalist Diva Satanica, the band released their debut album, Bloodhunter, back in 2014, where they started to create a solid fan-base around the country thanks to their strong live performances and high-quality death metal with a melodic & brutal edge.
Bloodhunter has now finished recording their second album, to be entitled The End of Faith, whose lineup is completed with bassist Éadrom and magnific session drummer Marcelo Aires. The result is fantastic and will definitely put Bloodhunter on the map as a force to reckon. Just imagine if Arch Enemy would play death metal - yes, death metal, not aggressive modern heavy metal - with a much more brutal approach.
Release date, artwork, track-list, advance songs, and other info will be revealed in the coming weeks, so stay tuned! You can visit Bloodhunter's official Facebook page below, and watch a video-clip from their debut album HERE, although Xtreem Music says the new material is waaay more brutal and aggressive!

Finnish rock metallers Zarthas has signed a worldwide deal with WormHoleDeath for the release of their third album "Reflections".
The band stated:
"Scouting for labels started already before the recordings, and WormHoleDeath was one of the first labels we sent our promotion to. In time, WormHoleDeath was also recommended by European promotion agencies, and we got convinced that we are now dealing with a label that is not only independent, down to earth, and artist-friendly, but has also grown to be quite a big player in the fields of international music business. As negotiations went on, pieces started to fall in place pretty quickly. We honestly believe that this is the beginning of solid co-operation, that suites the interests of both parties.
Zarthas has received lot of feedback that we need to get our music to European markets, so clearly WormHoleDeath became our number one target as a label to co-operate with. "Reflections" was not an easy album to record. Our studio gear started to fall apart piece by piece right from the beginning. All and all recording and mixing process went on one step forward and two steps back because of that. So after bunch of misfortune, we were extremely happy to hear that WormHoleDeath liked the stuff, and wanted to release it. It feels like all the hard work and countless hours are finally paying off, and that feels really good. Whole band is very excited and happy for this opportunity."
Formed in the year 2000 as a studio project and then as a regular live-band six years later, Devilish Impressions from Poland is a dominant Black Death metal band that’s quickly pummelling through the genre and making their way to fans and media around the globe.
After already having released their 2012 third studio album “Simulacra” with Lifeforce Records we are very happy to welcome back Devilish Impressions to the Lifeforce Records roster for the release of their new album “The I”, which is set to come out in late September.
“I’m thrilled to work with Devilish Impressions again to hopefully push the band to the next level. The guys in the band are dedicated hard workers. They know exactly what they want, what is needed to reach their goal and their new album is very big step forward musically. I truly believe we can turn some heads with “The I”! - comments Lifeforce Records owner Stefan Lüdicke.
The title chosen, “The I”, for the record is not only a phonetic acronym of the band’s name, but above all it reflects the manifesto they stand for since the Horde’s inception in the year 2000 – the notion of freedom of choice and will. A supremacy of an individual over any external factors being imposed on us by others, with special emphasis on religion and its convictions, dogmas and paradigms. “The I” is a rebellious manifesto targeted against all those who stand opposed to anything that drives us towards individual perfection.
"The I" is out September 2017.
