Spanish blackened extreme metal band Noctem released their 2016 full-length album, Haeresis, via Prosthetic Records to great buzz. Earlier this year, the band followed up with a separate digital single, "A Cruce Salus", giving fans a taste of what's soon to come. Now, the band is thrilled to reveal their brand new music video for the track, via Metal Injection. The video, which features blistering black & white live performance footage, can be viewed here: http://www.metalinjection.net/video/get-blackened-on-stage-with-noctems-new-video-for-a-cruce-salus
The live performance footage in the video was filmed by Metalovisión at three festivals in Spain this past summer - Rock Arena, Resurrection Fest, and Leyendas del Rock.
The band says, "'A Cruce Salus' is the last track we composed and a bridge between our latest full length Haeresis and our upcoming record. We decided to record some of the festivals where we performed this summer to capture the energy of the band in our live show, which is outstandingly fast, ravenous and full of anger."
Noctem have dominated the stage and studio for over 15 years, with two demos, one live LP and four albums under their belts. The band has performed internationally with artists such as Marduk, Enthroned, Impiety, Napalm Death, Samael, Gorgoroth, Nargaroth, Keep of Kalessin, Taake, Immolation, Vomitory, Malevolent Creation, Incantation, Hate, Ragnarok, Melechesh and many more.
The band's latest album, Haeresis, presents a haunting aural account of their home country's grotesque and obscene history during the Spanish Inquisition throughout 1500 A.C. stretched out over ten menacing tracks. Noctem self-recorded Haeresisin 2016 at Fireworks Studios (Valencia) before sending the album for mixing and mastering by Tore Stjerna (Watain, Valkyrja) at Sweden's Necromorbus Studios.WeLoveMetal.com called the album, "easily one of the heaviest and most extreme albums" of 2016.
Essex Thrashers Forged In Black have released their stunning new music video for 'Pay The Price'.
The new video accompanies the song ‘Pay The Price’, taken from the band’s latest and greatest release, the superb, Chris Tsangarides produced Sinner Sanctorum. It’s a powerful track; full of the band’s customary muscular riffing, intricate leads and soaring vocals and lyrically it carries a forceful anti-war message.
The video was created by Andy Pilkington of Very Metal Art, known for his work with US thrash legends Flotsam And Jetsam and UK death metal titans De Profundis and it’s a remarkable, engaging visual feast. The images combine the terrifying destructive power of modern warfare with a poignant reminder of the loss and personal cost that war always entails. The leaders of our nations are called to account, because while they spout their inflammatory rhetoric it is we who are left to Pay The Price!
Forged In Black are the epitome of great heavy metal. With a heart of steel always at the core of everything they do, they reach out and draw in everything that’s great from across the metal map. Their unique take on the glorious metal art has never been more apparent than on the Sinner Sanctorum EP and ‘Pay The Price’ is one of the standout tracks from that headbanging masterpiece.

The Greek Progressive / Alternative Metal band Mother of Millions are releasing a official video clip for the first single track "Collision", that is taken from the new concept album "Sigma" that will be released worldwide, via ViciSolum Records on November 3rd.
Check out the "Collision" video:
Mother Of Millions is a five piece progressive/alternative metal band from Athens, Greece, formed in 2008. The sound of Mother Of Millions can be described as equally massive as cinematic. An intense experimentation involving elaborate rhythms, folk aesthetics and progressive rock tunes.
In 2014 the band found itself ready, in terms of finding its own identity, to release its first, critically acclaimed, concept album "Human" (Turkey Vulture Records / Bungalo Records / Universal Music Group Distribution USA). Following the album's release, the band got busy, performing live, presenting, at most occasions, Human in its entirety. Along the way the band has played in many venues and shared the stage with established acts, such as Leprous, Septicflesh, Oceans of Slumber, Sleepmakeswaves and Paul Di'Anno. Most of their live performances have been featured in websites and magazines that cover the local scene.
During the last days of 2016, Mother Of Millions finished the recordings, mixing and mastering of "Human's" successor, their second concept album "Sigma". The band has already signed a deal with ViciSolum Records and is about to release "Sigma" on November 3rd, 2017.
Mother Of Millions are:
George Prokopiou (vocals)
Kostas Konstantinidis (guitars)
Panos Priftis (bass)
Makis Tsamkosoglou (keyboards, samples)
George Boukaouris (drums, percussions)
A true clash of the titans, America’s pre-eminent multiplatinum chart-topping Groove Metal band Five Finger Death Punch unite with renowned chart-topping European legends In Flames to co-headline what promises to be the biggest and most exciting arena rock tour of Autumn/Winter 2017. This marks the very first time that these two juggernauts have joined forces on the road together, and it’s a “can’t miss” moment for the genre and fans at large. The trek takes in arenas across Europe and the UK beginning in November, stopping in most major cities, and concluding on December 21st at Wembley Arena in London.
To coincide with the tour the band are releasing a new single, the defiant “’Ain’t My Last Dance” taken from their album “Got Your Six” which charted at No 6 in the UK. Listen to it HERE.
“We thought this was the perfect song to address the various rumours circulating out there. Ivan is doing great and the band is firing on all cylinders. Not just isn't this our "last dance" but as we are gearing up for the European tour, we are kicking it up a notch and building our biggest stage show to date" says Zoltan Bathory, founding member and guitarist of Five Finger Death Punch.
Spotify and Live Nation who present the tour, have joined forces with Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames for a one-of-a-kind tour partnership featuring exclusive pre-sales, packages, and content from both bands. For exclusive VIP offerings go HERE.
5FDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory commented: "We have just played all the European festivals and had an amazing time. As these massive crowds are singing along every word of the lyrics, it feels like Europe is truly becoming the second home of Five Finger Death Punch. We can't wait to come back this Fall and especially with In Flames which is one of my favourite bands. This will be something special to see…”
Support on select EU dates and all UK dates of the tour comes from Of Mice & Men. The Orange County, CA-based band recently returned with two brand new songs, “Back To Me” and “Unbreakable,” via Rise Records.
Five Finger Death Punch comprised of vocalist Ivan Moody, guitarists Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook, drummer Jeremy Spencer and bassist Chris Kael formed in 2005 and have released six highly successful albums, five of which have been certified gold, with one reaching platinum status and another soon to follow.

Swedish rock / metal band, Chronus, have released a music video for ‘Baron’, the song is taken from their self-titled debut album, due out on October 27th, 2017 in Europe on Ellefson Music Productions, aka EMP label group, the label of legendary Megadeth bassist David Ellefson. The video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/nd7zO6r4ZoY
After a well-received performance at this year’s Sabaton Open Air, the band are currently preparing for a Scandinavian tour supporting Soilwork and The Unguided.
Hailing from Helsingborg, Sweden, Chronus is an exalted quartet formed in 2015 and led by the Baron. Young, fresh and visionary, they carry the metal torch with astonishing maturity. Delivering a majestic performance filled with striking melodies and hard-hitting riffs, Chronus have been compared to the likes of Mastodon and Gojira. Vocalist / guitarist the Baron, dressed in white, embodies a voice reminiscent of Ozzy Osbourne, complementing the work of his three black-clad associates.
Sebastian “The Baron” Axelsson – rhythm guitar, lead vocals
Svante Furevi – lead guitar, backing vocals
Oliver Delander – bass, backing vocals
Jonatan Östling – drums
Late last month Irish death dealers Overoth released their second full length The Forgotten Tome via Hostile Media. With no less than ten tracks and over 40 minutes of extreme metal laden with orchestration, and artwork from none other than Will Simpson (Game Of Thrones, DC Comics), the quartet’s grand opus has seen praise from fans and the metal press the world over.
“If there was ever a perfect example of what death metal is, I would have to say that this would be it.” said one writer from Mayhem Music Magazine, while Dayal Patterson of Metal Hammer stated, “The Forgotten Tome is, above all, a very ambitious album, carefully constructed and not afraid to draw from different sources in order to create as powerful a sound as possible.” New York based writer Matt Bacon recently published on his website that “The Forgotten Tome is perhaps the UK’s best death metal offering to be,” while Paul Castles posted on Antichrist Magazine that the album was a “frostbitten steamroller with the blastbeats descending form the heavens like meteors, while further barbed wire riffage ensures hostility levels remain racketed up the max”.
Today the band has teamed up with Overdrive to reveal the second video from the album, a track entitled ‘God Of Delusion’. Watch the video here: http://www.overdrive.ie/overoth-unveil-god-delusion-video-watch
Filmed by Adam Edgerley and edited by Chris Bevan, ‘God Of Delusion’ was filmed in a dying wood in County Down, Northern Ireland. “It was a real nightmare of a location to get to,” states the band. “The wood itself was quite dense, so there was no chance we’d get our vehicles close to the location we had scouted, so with nothing but manpower we had to lug all our gear, generators, lights, camera gear, up and over hills, over streams and dead tress… they were everywhere… and it was a little sketchy at times, because we were surrounded by these massive trees, that with not much force would and were falling over. Needless to say, we all got out alive.”

Finnish death metallers Torchia release their debut album ”Of Curses and Grief”on October 27th and heads on to tour Taiwan.
The album is produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Amorphis, Ensiferum) so expectations might rise high for Hiilesmaa has worked with some top names out there. The band tells the sound they were after was some what old schoolish, organic and raw in a way that really serves the music. Advance sale is now on and you can get your own piece from Recordshop X (https://www.recordshopx.com) or Inverse Store (https://www.inverse.fi) where you can also find t-shirt bundles. ”Of Curses And Grief” will be distributed internationally.
The first single ”Fury” is now out and there’s also a music video released for it. This is what the band itself had to comment about the video: ”In the video for Fury, Torchia accompanies nameless souls in their danse macabre. The protagonist sets out to defeat the judgemental light, but gets dragged back into darkness. The blind live out their agony, for it is the only thing that haven't been taken from them."

Turkish metallers Pitch Black Process (aka PBP) released their debut album “One Reality” in 2003, and now, nearly 15 years later, the band's first ever official video "I Hate You", taken from the debut album, gets today its premiering online.
Watch "I hate You" here: https://youtu.be/Qd4x6PdTeYo
Comments the band:
"Here it is; our very first official video, “I Hate You”, which is taken from our debut album “One Reality” released in 2003. Some very old vaults opened and the video has surfaced for the first time in almost 15 years since the release of the album. It is more than ten years since even we last saw it. So, we hope you will enjoy it!"
Pitch Black Process frontman Emrah Demirel adds:
"It may seem strange that we have unleashed this old video now, but even though the sound is not so good, the music is not so "original" and the production isn't good either, but we wanted to post this video anyway. Lets call it "the progress of these last 15 years"! This is what we were and where we came from."
(photo below: the band in 2003)
Pitch Black Process (formerly known as Affliction) was formed in 1999. Their first two albums “One Reality” (out in May 2003) and “Execution is Necessary” (released in July 2007) got very good response nationwide and also from abroad. In November 2009 they hit the road for their first European tour playing over 20 gigs (being the longest tour which any Turkish band had ever made abroad until then), followed up by the 18-shows European tour with Warbringrt, in February 2010.
Before the tour with Warbringer, Pitch Black Process signed a sponsorship deal with one of the most well-known guitar companies in the world, PRS, which was another ‘debut’ for Turkey. None of any Turkish bands had signed a sponsorship agreement with such a big brand in music industry. The 3rd album “Hand of God?” was produced by Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Soilwork, etc) at Dugout Studios, came out in June 2013.
In September 2013, Pitch Black Process played on main stage at the 82nd Izmir International Fair, being the first ever metal band to play on the fair’s history. In 2015, Pitch Black Process became part of EVH and Fender. In November 2015 the band returned to Dugout Studios to record their 4th album, “Derin” which was released in December 2016, in Turkey on Atlantis Yapim / EMP Label Group and on Ellefson Music Productions / SPV in Europe.
