Rockshots Records is proud their latest signing of Italian melodic death metal band Manam for the release of their debut album "Rebirth of Consciousness" on November 23rd, 2018. Formed in late 2017 by mastermind Marco Salvador, Manam creates a unique style that spaces on all the horizons of melodic death metal, changing from song to song and touching different genres, but always strictly bound to its main concept. Inspired by bands such as Wintersun, Opeth and Trivium, they create an immersive experience complete with custom stage clothes and decorations to go along with their mixing of extreme guitar melodies, power metal riffs, acoustic guitars, and powerful vocals (both clean and rough) supported by blasting and eclectic drums.
Their 9 song debut album "Rebirth of Consciousness" promises intricate melodies, a deep meaning and great story through the lyrics. Focusing on being dynamic and including the audience, they are eager to bring their spiritual approach to life, depicted through melancholic and atmospheric music to new fans around the world.
Marco Salvador explains:
“We want to only make concept albums so that the listener can immerse themselves into a journey, embraced by the atmosphere of the music, but still able to make her/his own experience, bringing with them the unique meaning she/he will find in our music. With our future albums, we're also planning to expand this experience with visual art, some movies, and for the third album, we hope there will be a book too, to expand on our visions.”

Active since 2015, Sacremento, California-based progressive melodic death metal outfit The Odious Construct are a young band relatively speaking. Yet in their brief existence, they've moved at blinding speeds to continually refine their craft live and in the studio in order to reach the next level. After hashing out two single song demos in 2015, the band quickly released their well-received self-titled EP in July of 2016. 2016's "The Odious Construct" was additionally praised by outlets such as Dead Rhetoric who called it "Straight-forward death metal with enough technical zest and melodic underpinnings to keep it interesting."
Now in 2018, The Odious Construct have evolved as musicians and songwriters and are primed to release their strongest music to date on Shrine of the Obscene. Recently signed to The Artisan Era, Shrine of the Obscene will be The Odious Construct's first effort on the label and is set for release on Friday, October 12th through The Artisan Era.
Throughout the five swift and deadly songs on Shrine of the Obscene, The Odious Construct carves out a path beyond the typical "complex for complexities sake" approach with a focus built upon catchy guitar melodies, straightforward brutality, and enhanced by orchestral flair to ensure the songs remain stuck in your head. The Odious Construct - Shrine of the Obscene will strongly appeal to fans of groups such as Alterbeast, The Black Dahlia Murder, Irreversible Mechanism, Virvum, and The Faceless.
*You can listen to an extended early teaser video for Shrine of the Obscene HERE
The Odious Construct had the following to say about the upcoming release of Shrine of the Obscene
"This upcoming EP is a progression from the previous self-titled EP. While still melodic, there is more speed and technicality involved, and there is more experimentation with orchestra instruments. Thematically, the writing is still dark. The lyrics revolve around psychological disorders, horror, suicide, etc. The goal of this EP was to include more dynamics musically and more diverse instrumentation. We are still a melodic death metal band but we are incorporating more modern elements to the music stylistically."
The Odious Construct is:
Casey Ryle - vocals
Wesley Yee - guitar
Ben Jackson - guitar
Sam Datu - bass
KC Brand - drums (The Ritual Aura)
Taking root in early thrash and death metal, and combined with dark, foreboding ambiance, Seeds Of Perdition strive to create a more atmospheric style of death/thrash metal. While the trend in extreme music today is towards technicality and virtuosity, the group present a more raw and intense sound that gives a simpler, yet heavier vibe.
Seeds Of Perdition formed in Philadelphia, P.A. in 2010 when founding members Daniel Loughry and George Cathers, formerly of Insatanity and Polterchrist, decided to take a different direction from past projects. They recorded their first demo, New World Tyrants, in Spring 2011.
After a couple of years touring and with the departure of original members Matt Frost and Steve Raimer, early 2013 saw the addition of Chris Natalini on vocals. Chris brings in his experience from such bands as Dawn Of Correction, Circle Of Fear and Blood Feast. He is also a patch wearing member and leader of the NYDM’s Pennsylvania chapter. Their debut 5 song EP entitled From Within was released on Born Of Chaos Records in May 2013.
In 2014, came the addition of Chris Kerns on bass guitar, hailing from groups such as Crucifier and Pale Existence. “Crazy Ass” Paul Dunleavy joined the band on lead guitar for 2014-2015. Late 2016 saw the arrival of Joseph Muir on lead guitar. Originally an acoustic jazz guitarist, he is new blood to the death metal genre and music scene.
The album Incarnation was released in June 2017 and now Seeds Of Perdition are ready and waiting with the release of their brand new opus Suffering Of The Dead worldwide via Sliptrick Records in the coming months.
