Unleashing their eighth and latest release "Daño Colateral" digitally this past April, Mexican thrashers Centauro will be making the new album available on CD as of June 30, 2018 through Bandcamp and distributor Ablaze Productions.
Leading up to the "Daño Colateral" physical release, Centauro have teamed up with PureGrainAudio.com for the premiere of their new lyric video "Colmando un Oscuro Vacío" at the following link: http://puregrainaudio.com/videos/mexican-thrashers-centauro-light-up-with-their-colmando-un-oscuro-vacio-lyric-video-exclusive-premiere
"Daño Colateral" is Centauro's third full-length adding to their existing repertoire of well worked classic thrash intertwined with hearty samples of elements from several metal sub-genres, most notably black and death, resulting in a recognizable, deep and unique sound.
"Daño Colateral" is a concept album focused on the turbulent story of a person that was born into awful situations and throughout their life, continues to experience numerous setbacks even through effort and good will; a subjective message to decadence of society and modern system thoughts.
Drummer Mario Rivera further explains:
“The album is a story about a person that has been born from rape, that’s why this newborn is unwanted; So he and his brother work their way through the struggles of life until his brother dies. He gets angry with life and his resentment burns until he gets into prison for vandalism. In prison, he learns how to be a real criminal, and when he is released, he begins a path of violent crimes and killing until his madness makes him commit suicide.”
The band purposely takes the listener through torrid moments to create atmospheres of deep anxiety, fear, anger, joy and depression. It’s a journey through emotions that evolve from one to another. This intense story that can be both heart wrenching and uplifting can be heard in full stream and downloaded on Spotify, Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, and Google Play.
Pennsylvania metalcore outfit For The Better has premiered a lyric video for their new single titled, "Silence". Mastered by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, The Ghost Inside), who also worked on the group's past three singles, has helped bring the band's sound alive while gaining major traction on Spotify with 00k+ streams. The song comes from their upcoming debut album, set to release later this year.
Guitarist Jake Pomeroy commented:-
“We really wanted Silence to solidify what our audience should expect on the rest of the album. We are ultimately really excited to see how they take it all in."

American power metallers Sonic Prophecy have posted a new lyric video for their track "Man The Guns" off their third full length "Savage Gods" unleashed via Rockshots Records this past January.
Watch it now at the following link: https://youtu.be/6rwhHOjXzwo
"Savage Gods" follows Sonic Prophecy's 2015 sophomore release "Apocalyptic Promenade" (Maple Metal Records), an album that combined the melody and beauty of symphonic power metal while maintaining the crunch, drive and power of traditional metal plus their 2011 debut "A Divine Act of War", which had its music placed in the television series “Rock n’ Lock”, the video game “Volgarr the Viking” and movie Danny Trejo's “Vengeance”.
This latest album "Savage Gods" lyrically covers many topics, from quests and medieval wars, to mechanized genocide, to the dangers associated with extremist ideologies. Broadening and stretching their musical palate, "Savage Gods" will give fans an adventurous listening experience. It's an album that combines melodic hard rock, driving heavy metal, and chest pounding anthems in a way that is uniquely Sonic Prophecy.
"We think our fans will love this album! Savage Gods, as a record, basically combines all of the things I think people liked about our previous releases and then moves us forward into new areas musically and lyrically. For our fans, there will be no mistaking this is Sonic Prophecy, but we definitely cover some new exciting ground on this record. This is pure heavy metal with driving guitars, thundering drums, and some of what I feel is my best vocal work to date. With songs "Night Terror, "Unholy Blood" and the album title track, we’ve really laid down a brutal sonic backdrop, along with keeping the melody, which is important to our music." - vocalist Shane Provstgaard.
“Savage Gods” is available from Rockshots Records at the following link: http://smarturl.it/savagegods

“Downfall Of Mankind” is the upcoming masterpiece by this outstanding combo which will be released on June 1st via Napalm Records. Today a new song sees the light of day: Please get ready to “Kill The Silence”!
Guitarist Prika comments on the new song and video:
“A perfect scenery to compose lyrics that encourage overcoming. It talks about things that hurt you and that you’re not alone. This new video symbolizes a new phase in the band with which I identify myself 100%!"
"I like the idea of using fire in the video, because i think the symbology has everything to do with the message in the song. Fire represents renewal and mainly purification, and using it in the video really gives me the idea of triumph, overcoming and moving on!” adds Fernanda.

With a mix of death, thrash and heavy metal, the band stood out from the pack and released six of the best albums that Brazil has ever produced. After their most recent work, ‘Belligerent Part I – The Killing State of the Art’ in 2012, the group focused on playing live while composing the seventh album.

Nordic symphonic metal masters Midnattsol have just released the official lyric video for the title track of their upcoming new album “The Aftermath” which will be released on May 25th via Napalm Records.
Midnattsol now has true full sister power featuring Liv Kristine and Carmen Elise! The name "Espenæs“ rightfully makes a lot of people swoon – as both sisters have been a vital part of a magnitude of gothic / symphonic / folk metal milestones. Until this point a supergroup involving both sisters sharing microphone duties was only the stuff only dreams were made of. Now it is a reality!
The band comments on the track:
“As a huge thank you for waiting for us all these years, here is another song for you before the release of our new album! It contains a message that we want to reach out with; What do you think it is?”
“The Aftermath” relies much more heavily on folk influences lending atmospheric density to the melancholic symphonic metal compositions. A sumptuous and sensual affair and a shimmering highlight in the discography of this German / Norwegian team! Enjoy the brand new video HERE!
Lelahell just released a new lyric video entitled “Ignis Fatuus” taken from the upcoming album that will release via Metal Age Productions on June 15th. “Ignis Fatuus” is the first single from the great new album Alif which features a phenomenal German drummer Hannes Grossmann (ex Necrophagist, ex Obscura, Alkaloid, Blotted Science, Hate Eternal), one of the most admired players in the world of technical death metal. Ignis Fatuus is like a firestorm crossing the desert valley you can only enjoy!
