Ghost of Mary plays melodic death metal with symphonic and orchestral elements borrowed from classical music. The band, active from the early months of 2014, recorded its first concept album “Oblivaeon” , an original allegory about life and death. The compositions are structured with progressive architectures and immersed in a dark atmosphere. The songwriting is articulated and distinctly melodic, characterized by a heavy metal rhythm section and swedish death guitar riffs. The voice alternates different styles, from screaming and growling vocals to clean and scratched ones. The orchestral scores of piano, violin, viola and cello make the music of Ghost of Mary an evocative journey through time.
Let the journey begin.
Swedish four piece orchestra TID have partnered with Metal Hammer UK for the exclusive premiere of "Aurora Surrealis" video. The song is taken from the forthcoming album "Fix Idé" and can be streamed at the following link http://teamrock.com/feature/2016-09-08/secretive-cinematic-swedes-tid-unveil-a-mesmerising-new-video
A dark mantra depicting a never-ending spiral as the ways of mankind. A whirlwind of science and ideas and the will to move forward - but do we really? A sonic landscape telling mystic truths and esoteric visions. The constructed dawn: Aurora Surrealis - Mankind’s own sunrise.
Listen to "Aurora Surrealis"
Tid’s third album "Fix Idé" will be released 7th October via The Sign Records. The album will be released on LP, CD and Digital. Pre-order here thesignrecords.bandcamp.com/album/tid-fix-id
The Finnish symphonic/film score metal band Ravenia just released a music video for the track "We All Died For Honor" online. Their debut album "Beyond The Walls Of Death" will be released on April 29th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings.
Global Metal Apocalypse is featuring this on our front page.
The video was directed by Markus Nieminen.
The sound of Ravenia is characterized by the massive orchestrations and the beautiful and emotional vocals from Armi and can be described as a mix between composers like Two Steps From Hell and Hans Zimmer, and metal bands like Nightwish and Epica.
"Beyond The Walls Of Death" was mixed by Nino Laurenne [Wintersun, Battle Beast, Ensiferum] at Sonic Pump Studios and mastered by Svante Forsbäck [Volbeat, Sonata Arctica, Apocalyptica] at Chartmakers. The album artwork was created by Jan Yrlund [Korpiklaani, Apocalyptica, Leah].
