Italy's Kingcrow release "Night's Descending" single ft. Daniel Gildenlow from Pain Of Salvation; pre-order For The Persistence now
Italian prog rock/metal outfit Kingcrow has issued a new single from their impending new album, The Persistence, set for early September release through Sensory Records. The new track, "Night's Descending," features a guest vocal performance by Pain Of Salvation's vocalist Daniel Gildenlow. This is a extra special pairing as Kingcrow will tour across Europe supporting Pain Of Salvation in conjunction with the release of The Persistence.
Offers Kingcrow's Diego Cafolla with the new single:-
"'Night's Descending' holds a special place in my heart for personal reasons and I love the sense of drama that permeates the song. As soon as I wrote the vocal melody I thought that it sounded perfect for the voice of Daniel Gildenlow from Pain Of Salvation. I talked with our singer Diego Marchesi about the idea and when he heard the song he totally agreed with me, so I contacted Daniel telling him I wrote a song that I thought it was perfect for his singing. Luckily Daniel liked the song quite a bit and told me he was going to making it. When we heard Daniel singing on 'Night's Descending' for the first time I was impressed by his incredibly emotional performance and I thought we definitely made right choice."

Kingcrow's upcoming third album for Sensory Records, The Persistence closes a three-year gap since their acclaimed Eidos album. Describing Kingcrow today is quite a difficult task, but one could state that the influence of different kinds of music; progressive rock, alternative rock, ambient music, metal, and more are all present in the band's songs. With each release, they take a step further away from their original roots and is regarded today as one of the most exciting bands that Italy has to offer. Recorded at Sound Under Pressure, The Persistence was produced by Kingcrow's Diego and Thundra Cafolla, mixed by Giampiero Ulacco, and completed with the photography and design of Devilnax, all the same as the album's predecessor. Fans of Steven Wilson, Riverside, and Dream Theater, this is required listening.
The Canadian extreme progressive metal quintet Into Eterrnity recently unveiled a new song, “Fringes of Psychosis”, (https://youtu.be/V5rOJADB4GE) which marked the first official taste of their long-awaited sixth album “The Sirens”. Today, M-Theory Audio is proud to announce the group's signing, and that the record will be released on October 26. Physical pre-orders are available now at this location (www.m-theoryaudio.com/store), while a digital pre-order (which includes an instant download of “Fringes of Psychosis”) is underway on Bandcamp (intoeternitysk.bandcamp.com).
Originally, Into Eterrnity intended to self-release “The Sirens” after a planned release through a European label fell through, but the group recently reconnected with M-Theory Audio president Marco Barbieri, who served as president of Century Media Records when the band released such acclaimed albums as “Buried In Oblivion” (2004) and “The Scattering Of Ashes” (2006).
“The Sirens” – which features guest appearances by former vocalist Stu Block (now in Iced Earth), Cam Dixon (ex-Annihilator) and Glen Drover (ex-Megadeth) – sees Into Eterrnity firing on all cylinders, with Amanda Kiernan's fierce vocals and Tim Roth's trademark guitar heroics and vocal harmonies backed by long time bassist Troy Bleich and newer recruits Bryan James Newbury (drums) and Matt Cuthberston (guitars, also of Untimely Demise). The album was co-produced, mixed and mastered by former guitarist Justin Bender, while long time artist Mattias Noren (Evergrey, Epica, Kamelot) designed the cover and layout.
Says founding guitarist Tim Roth:-
“First of all, Into Eterrnity would like to thank all of our fans for the support regarding this new album we're about to release. The original plan was to release it independently ourselves, but the plan has changed. We are pumped to announce that we are now releasing 'The Sirens' worldwide through M-Theory Audio! Thanks go out to Marco for reaching out to us and providing us a new deal that we simply could not refuse. Into Eterrnity worked for years and years with Marco when he was president of Century Media, so for us this is a perfect fit for our band. Unfortunately, this does mean that we will be pushing back our release date until October, as our new label is going to need some time to manufacture and properly promote the release. Thanks again to everyone for the long time support, and you'll all be hearing 'The Sirens' in the coming months!”
From 2005 to 2008, there wasn't a harder-working metal band on the planet than Into Eterrnity, whose extreme progressive metal built on the pioneering work of such forward-thinking acts as Death, Cynic and Opeth. The group toured seemingly non-stop with the likes of Dream Theater, Symphony X, Dark Tranquillity, The Haunted, Kataklysm and Hate Eternal, and also joined the epic line-up of Megadeth, Lamb of God, Opeth, Arch Enemy and Overkill on the 2006 edition of Gigantour.
In 2008, the group released their fifth record, the concept album “The Incurable Tragedy,” and prepared for another busy touring cycle, which began with a vengeance on that year's Summer Slaughter Canada (where the band played alongside Necrophagist, Dying Fetus, Veil of Maya, Whitechapel and others). From there, the group hit the road in support of Iced Earth, after which they planned to take a short break to recover from four years of road work.
Soon after Roth returned home to Regina, Saskatchewan, however, he became a first-time father, and it soon became clear that touring as aggressively wouldn't be possible. The group still performed periodically in subsequent months, even travelling to Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan in the spring of 2009, but as the band considered their next moves after the end of the “Incurable Tragedy” touring cycle, vocalist Stu Block was asked to join Iced Earth.
At first, he planned to perform double-duty, and in 2011, Into Eterrnity recorded two digital singles featuring Block. It quickly became apparent, though, that Iced Earth's touring commitments would keep Block on the road indefinitely, so in 2012, Roth recruited the Edmonton-based singer Amanda Kiernan (also of The Order of Chaos) to become Into Eterrnitys new vocalist. The group subsequently began demoing material for a new album, which they would record gradually over the next few years.
This weekend, Into Eterrnity will join Fit For An Autopsy and Archspire as co-headliners of the Loud As Hell festival in Drumheller, Alberta on August 5th. For more info visit www.LoudAsHell.com. Additional tour dates are in the works.
Cypher16 have begun recording their second album at Top Floor Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden. The record (as-yet untitled) will be produced by Jakob Herrmann (Anthrax, Machine Head etc) and mixed by Jacob Hansen (Amaranthe, Volbeat etc) in Denmark.
'We've been having a lot of fun trying to make a record that is heavy, but which steps away from the traditional 'heavy rock/metal' sound and style that we feel has caused the genre to stagnate in recent years. We're turning down the gain, but turning up the attitude, and we'll be interested in what the reaction is to a very heavy album with a difference!'
The first single 'Push Through The Water' is due for release at the end of August.
Signed lyric sheets and other items from the recording session are available to buy from the band's merchandise store here. All proceeds go towards the album production costs.

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.
You can stream the new single on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and Spotify.
Russian progressive death metal band Skyglow released a single 'Sacred Self-Deceit'. The track is taken from their upcoming debut album 'Thousand Years of Terror' which is released by Inverse Records (digitally) & Grotesque Sounds (CD) on June 30th 2018.
Watch the video: https://youtu.be/H-FIvnCaXYY
The band currently consists of just two members: Alexander Mokin (author, vocalist) and Sergey Stepanenko (guitarist). They make studio music and do not perform live. The best part of their music is its insane composition, original complex riffs and its aggressive and chaotic yet sentimental atmosphere.
"Recently we finished our debut album named Thousand Years of Terror. It is dedicated to the problems of totalitarian states, inspired by the political situation in Russia."
Listen to the single on:
Vocals by Alexander Mokin
Guitars, bass by Sergey Stepanenko
Drums by Dmitriy Kim
