Famined Records are proud to be announcing the addition of Sails of Serenity to their roster. The Turkish progressive metal/djent act will be releasing their debut album The Crossing full of killer tracks like "Castaway" or "The Ghost Ship." The ten song LP will drop on August 17th.
In addition to the signing, we are also very excited to reveal the band's latest music video for the new "Left Behind" single. The track features guest vocalist Başer Çelebi of Furtherial. If you're a fan of other progressive and metalcore acts alike Erra, Tesseract, or Architects, you won't want to miss this one. The exclusive premiere of the single was hosted by Metal Injection and SpaceUntravel.
Regarding the new single, the band stated:-
"Inspired by Captain Ahab's story from Moby Dick, 'Left Behind' tells us about a man, estranged to himself by his convictions; a man left behind in a sense. This is symbolized in the music video as a man left alone in an island." They continued: "Being a part of the Famined Records family is a new and exciting step for us. With 'Left Behind' and our upcoming album The Crossing, we believe that we will achieve our main goal to make our music heard by people all around the world."
Sails of Serenity is a group from Istanbul, Turkey consisting of vocalist Selim Devirek, guitarist Sercan Alkin, guitarist Harun Sekmen, and drummer Alter Güven. Their musical style merges djenty grooves with catchy vocal melodies all packaged together in an aggressive metalcore package. The band has previously released the Gold to Rust EP and "The Bitter End" single in 2016.
Their upcoming LP, The Crossing, was mixed and mastered by Gabor Toth (Harmed) at Ghostship Recordings (Beyond Deviation, Swallowed Alive, Bloodbather). In addition to the guest appearance by Furtherial's Başer Çelebi on "Left Behind," the opening piece on the album will include orchestration by Eren Başbuğ (Dream Theater). The record will be available worldwide through Famined Records on August 17th, 2018.

Greek heavy metal band, Null’o’zero, have released a new music video for 'The Last One', the track is taken of their new album ‘Instructions To Dominate‘, due out on July 13, via ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records.
"WARNING: This video may potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised."
The video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/Ihmf6klJRr8
The video was directed & produced by Bob Katsionis. Filmed at MONO THE PLACE. Actors: “The Last One” - Christo Veliano (Professional Actor of Mimi Denisis’ actor troupe). “Demon / Magician” - Giorgos Loukos (Professional juggler and magician known for his appearances on the Greek versions of the Shows. ‘’The Successor” (hosted by Uri Geller, and “Greece Got Talent”).
‘Instructions To Dominate‘ is the 2nd Official album by Null’o’zero, an album that was written in a very difficult period for the band. This is the reason why the album is so aggressive and driven by emotion – anger, grief, pain, frustration – but it also gives hope to take courage to stand with our heads held high.
It’s a natural evolution of the first album ‘The Enemy Within‘, preserving the band’s unique character. Solid rhythm section, diverse riffs, outrageous solos and imposing vocals blend to an intriguing balance between melody and aggression.
Geo Sinner (George Patsouris) – Vocals
Elias Andritsos – Guitars
Aggelos Kokkorogiannis – Guitars
George Del – Bass
Lefteris Moros – Drums
Null’o’zero was formed in 2012 in Athens/Greece. The general idea was to play contemporary aggressive music but also with technical and melodic riffs, main influences are Megadeth, Death, Symphony X, Metallica, etc.
Influenced by legends like Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth and King Diamond, Australia's Greystone Canyon unleashed their Wild West inspired debut album "While The Wheels Still Turn" this past March via Rockshots Records (EU/NA) and Hellfire Records (AU). The album is devoted to the love for old western cowboy films and the images these films conjure, the vast plains, endless horizons and the freedom of the Wild West. Tracked at Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia, and then mixed in Canada, this album is a real rock n’ roll frequent flyer. Mixing duties were undertaken by none other than Grammy nominated producer and legend Glen Robinson, who has engineered, mixed and produced equally legendary acts like Annihilator, Queensryche and Voivod.
Teaming up with Metal-Rules.com, Greystone Canyon is sharing with fans the premiere of their new video "In These Shoes".
The band comments:
"This song is about walking the hard road and never giving up on what you want... no matter the cost... Succeed or die trying. It's a tribute to the human spirit that is within all of us. There's also a little "tip of the hat" to Zeppelin in the lyrics."

Hellenic black metal masters Varathron have teamed up with Decibel Magazine to premiere a music video for the track "Remnants Of The Dark Testament", taken from their new album "Patriarchs Of Evil", out now Agonia Records. The video was filmed by Sotiris Benekos. Watch the uncensored version of the video at this link:
Co-founded in 1988 by Stefan Necroabyssious, the band's vocalist and sole original member, Varathron has been on a steady release schedule since 2004's "Crowsreign". The latter album introduced Haris (drums) and Achilleas C. (guitars) to the band, who were later joined by Sotiris (guitars) and Stratos (bass). Together, they established a new, well-bonded line-up of an already established Hellenic black metal act, considered as one of the forefathers of the genre, next to Rotting Christ and Necromantia.
Having previously described "Patriarchs Of Evil" as "heavy, dark and full of melodies that will revive past memories", Varathron elaborates on the successor to "Untrodden Corridors Of Hades" (2014):
"The time has come to deliver our new opus 'Patriarchs of Evil'. A sinful sip of this unholy communion will lure you into an astral journey of absurd dimensions - with an awakening smell of the old era. This album is one of the finest pieces Varathron has ever unleashed. We promise a true heavy, blasphemous and unique masterpiece with Necroabyssious delivering his best performance ever. With glorious riffs, profound melodies and a solid rhythm section, this dark testament is to delve into. The time of the rejuvenation has come!! WE ARE FOREVER IMMORTAL!!".
"Varathron are proudly spreading the Mediterranean plague since 1988! 30 years have passed and we continue to worship darkness and preach the unholy word! 'Patriarchs of Evil' is not just a new album, it is a celebration and one of our greatest creations. Behold the 8 hymns!".
"Patriarchs Of Evil" was recorded, mixed and mastered over the course of 2017 by Achilleas Kalantzis (aka Achilleas C.) at Crown Audio Conspiracies, except for drums which were recorded at Infinite Loop Music Studio. Both studios are based in Varathron's home town of Ioannina, Greece. The album's artwork and layout were designed by Juanjo Castellano. New band photos were taken by Evi Savva.
Finnish modern thrash metal act Justice Theory has released a new EP “When the Lights Are Fading” and a music video for the opening track "All for Nothing".
Previously Justice Theory released three singles, and played at the Finnish Metal Festival Jalometalli 2016 edition, warming up the stage for bands like Anthrax.
The first EP release from the band presents three tracks of catchy and aggressive thrash metal with tight riffs and unique vocal work. The lyrical themes on When the Lights Are Fading are about the degeneration of humankind in perished world where nothing feels the same anymore.
"When we notice that we are actually completely numb it's already too late. As the time is running short. The lights are about to go out." The frontman Valtteri Saharinen sum up the message.

British goth metal band Her Despair have just released a haunting new video for their track "Blaspheme With Me". The song is taken from their upcoming release Mournography, which will be released in July.
The band commented:-
“For us, “Blaspheme With Me” represents the very essence of Her Despair. It combines gothic rock with flashes of punk and metal, and glides between our two predominant lyrical themes: the erotic and the theologic. Mourning has broken."
Watch the video here: http://www.ghostcultmag.com/exclusive-video-premiere-her-despair-blaspheme-with-me/
Her Despair, formed in 2015, began as a solo project with the release of debut album “Hymns For the Hopeless.” Showcasing the melodramatic sound and aesthetic of gothic music with the accessibility of punk and the styling of heavy metal, the solo studio project has subsequently evolved into the current full line-up. With nods toward fellow countrymen The Sisters of Mercy and Paradise Lost, to bands such as HIM and Rammstein, the band create their own unique twist on the styles that they are influenced by.
“Mournography,” the brand new follow-up EP and first as a full-fledged band, was recently completed by the band with Matt Bew at Whitehouse Studios (Reading, UK), and is described as such:
“Mournography is an exploration into the mysteries of tragedy, blasphemy, death, and love; both literally and figuratively. The mourning of some, the lust of others. These songs praise and pervert the Word of God simultaneously: providing a deeply unsettling spiritual experience set to a bleak backdrop of melancholia.”
From their location in Berkshire UK, the band is set to unleash new convocations upon locations which have included London, Oxford, Bournemouth and Reading. Continuing to expand their fan base throughout live performances, clouds of smoke and lights theatrically immerse the audience, providing a perfect setting to experience the compelling material.
Fate Destroyed is a commanding new Los Angeles-based metal force that was formed and fronted by the talented and alluring Franccesca De Struct. The band is breaking ground with a fierce take on the metal status quo, with influences ranging from Deftones to Trivium to Nine Inch Nails. Combining raw emotional lyrics and powerful vocals with visceral guitars and driving synths, Fate Destroyed create an audio assault that bridges the gap between hard hitting 90's industrial rock and modern heavy metal.The band features current and former members of Green Jelly, Matriarchs, The Dreaming, Kuza, 7 Days Away and Dirty Machine.
Fate Destroyed just revealed their intense new music video for the wickedly melodic track "Break Free", which will appear on the band's upcoming self-titled EP set to release later this summer. The video for the catchy anthem, directed by famed video director Matt Zane, was revealed yesterday exclusively via the Alternative Press Facebook page and is also streaming now via YouTube: https://youtu.be/FeqoxRqBZiU
Frontwoman Franccesca De Struct says:-
"'Break Free' is a story of the unending struggle between who we are and who we want to be. It's a song about those moments when you look in the mirror and don't recognize the person looking back at you. It's about duality, about feeling trapped inside a time and place and the desire to escape that."
Fate Destroyed's upcoming self-titled EP is co-produced by the band and Carlton Bost (Orgy, Deadsy, The Dreaming). More EP information is set to be released soon. For now, fans can stream the "Break Free" single via Spotify, ReverbNation, Deezer, and iHeart Radio, or buy it via Google Play or Amazon.
Make sure to catch Fate Destroyed performing live at "Jellyfest" on July 27 at Malone's Concert Venue in Santa Ana, CA. The show will feature headliners Green Jelly, as well as support from several other bands.
Tickets will be available via the venue or via www.acropolistickets.com/event/JELLYFEST.

Australia's Lost In Separation announces re-release of "Sister Moon"; premieres "Deathwish" music video
Metalcore quartet Lost In Separation has announced the re-release of their 2017 debut album, Sister Moon. Set to release July 13th via Pale Chord, the record contains all eight original tracks, as well as three new tracks.
Vocalist, Garrett Parsa comments:-
"I can say without a doubt that we could not be more proud of “Sister Moon”. I wrote songs about battling personal demons, the critical state of the human condition, not giving up on life, and against all odds; finding beauty in disparity. My hope is that the dark subject matter would challenge the listener to try to make the world around them a better place."
Along with the announcement, the band has released a new music video for the third track off the upcoming release titled, "Deathwish".
"I’m very excited for everyone to finally see our video for 'Deathwish'. The song symbolizes my journey of finding hope and compassion in a world that is otherwise cruel and unforgiving. It’s about the balance between life and death. While the topics reflect negative aspects of the world around us, the song is meant to encourage others to realize that it is not too late to change, and it’s not too late to stand up for what is right." says Parsa.
