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.
Romanian Death Metal group Saddayah offer a new track taken off their upcoming debut album, "Apopheny of Life", full-length scheduled for release on the 7th of September via Loud Rage Music. 8, the second single, is now available for streaming here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vF-tyVK0das
Saddayah‘s music is rooted in traditional Death Metal, but the band’s serious technical abilities rose to a fresh, melodic and technical type of Death Metal with progressive and blackened influences.
Barcelona-based Heavy & Epic Doom Metal band Black Lotus release the first single from the upcoming album 'Sons of Saturn'. The album is released in October 19th 2018 by Inverse Records.
Watch the music video 'Sons of Saturn' here: https://youtu.be/lay83_1GJ9w
Black Lotus is founded by Hug Ballesta in 2015. After finding a proper line-up they headed into the Moontower Studio at the end of 2017. The album is recorded and mixed by Javi Félez and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, Portland, Oregon.
Hug Ballesta comments:
"We have chosen Sons of Saturn as the first single because it represents by itself the key sounds we search for as a band. We are lovers of both the classic bands and the new sounds and styles in metal: rawness, heavy-doomy-slow tempos, but at the same time catchy melodies that can equally transport the listener to apparently opposed moods. We are delighted that Inverse Records helps us spread our music... can't wait for the feedback!"
Black Lotus' sound is grounded in the diverse influences of the band members. Traditional Heavy Metal is the common factor and driving force of the band, but alternative sounds of the 90s, Stoner Rock, Doom Metal and post metal genres are also colours in their palette. Their compositions are embracing all those influences without limitations or dogmas. Likewise, lyrics are eminently symbolic, expressing a dystopic vision of society and their view of the world. Classic mythology, occultism, and personal experiences and visions are the sources for their compositions.
"Sons of Saturn" is available on all digital platforms worldwide.

Spanish heavy metal band Valkyria have revealed the first advance single, cover art, and track-listing for their second album, Tierra Hostil (Hostile Land), which will be released on October 10th through Fighter Records.
Tierra Hostil was recorded, mixed, and mastered under the production of Pedro J. Monje (Vhäldemar) at his own Chromacity Studios where Valkyria recorded their debut album, Principio y Fin (Beginning & End), in 2016. This new work shows a natural development and a more mature sound in their own style of melodic, catchy, and powerful heavy metal that blends both modern and classic influences with a charming voice that creates killer vocal lines.

Forged in 2012 by the guitarists Fredrik Nilsson and Kristian Roupe, black metal force Blood Of Serpents hail from the deep forests of Småland, Sweden. Spawning two mini releases and one critically acclaimed full length within the six years of existence, Blood Of Serpents are proud to present their second album, “Sulphur Sovereign”, after years of writing, line-up changes and adversity.
“Sulphur Sovereign” is the first offering to feature the drummer Christoffer Andersson and the vocalist Thomas Clifford (Throne of Heresy, Abscession). With the newly recruited assets, the band has taken a decided step into a supreme black metal direction, going at full speed with forceful vocals that rip and roar with equal measure. Mixed with dark melodic guitar works and crushing riffs, Sulphur Sovereign is a full on black metal attack interspersed with atmospheric pieces and haunting melodic parts.
Containing ten tracks of genuine Swedish black metal, Blood of Serpents are finally ready to set free the beast — known as Sulphur Sovereign — upon the world. This is a defining moment for the band who has found their true sound in the sphere of accursed black metal.
The album is produced by Lars Broddesson (ex-Marduk) and mixed and mastered by Magnus Devo Andersson (Marduk). Amazing Gustave Doré inspired artwork was executed by Khaos Diktator.
“Sulphur Sovereign” will be out worldwide on September 25, 2018 through Non Serviam Records on digipak CD and digital format.
Los Angeles-based Fate Destroyed is a commanding new metal force that was formed and fronted by the talented and alluring Franccesca De Struct. In mid-June, the band released their striking single, "Break Free", which has since garnered over 250,000 streams/video views via YouTube, Facebook and Spotify combined!

Fate Destroyed frontwoman Franccesca De Struct says:-

Solium Fatalis will release Genetically Engineered to Enslave on October 13.
Check out previous Solium Fatalis releases at soliumfatalis.bandcamp.com
Solium Fatalis' brand of extreme metal began with the self-titled independent release of their 2013 full length debut album featuring production by Fredrik Nordstrom (At The Gates, Dimmu Borgir) and stunning artwork by Seth Siro Anton (Exodus, Paradise Lost, Septicflesh).
Not ones to sit idle for long, the band quickly released 2015's The Undying Season which was a clear evolution of the band's sound. With production by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Agonist, Neuraxis) and artwork by French artist Pierre-Alain D.@3mmi, both of whom have gone on to become Solium's regular artist and engineer for the bands 2016 release Neuronic Saw and now for their fourth album they bring over 10 tracks and 40 minutes of music for 2018.

Death metal mavericks Maligner premiere the new track "Lust for Fire" at Decibel magazine's website. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated debut album, Attraction to Annihilation, set for international release on August 31st via Blood Harvest Records and Helter Skelter Productions. Hear Maligner's "Lust for Fire" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
One of the most promising hordes Blood Harvest have come across in some time, Maligner are a deathrashing power-trio hailing from the label's home town of Malmö, Sweden. To date, Maligner have a two-song digital promo released during the autumn of 2016 and then, a few months later, the five-song Demon EP, which Blood Harvest released on cassette tape and digital formats. Bolstered by the attention afforded Demon, the trio truly come into their own on Attraction to Annihilation.
For a debut album, Attraction to Annihilation is as fully formed as they come. Maligner may be only entering their third year of existence, but the attention to craft and class across this eight-song firestorm is seriously the work of veterans - but, of course, ones not yet complacent with their ideas and especially execution. Right from the very first notes of opener "Oath-bound," Maligner explode with a dazzling array of fleet-footed 'n' finesse death metal in a most late '80s mold, back when actual songwriting mattered most and bands like Death, Sadus, and Dark Angel ruled the underground. Indeed, even nomenclature like "deathrash" didn't really exist; it was simply all METAL, just darker and more deathly than what the aboveground was proffering. But, Maligner are no mere retro retread: their compositional prowess is in a league of its own, and their attention to the finer details of aggression bespeaks a maturity that thankfully isn't neutering. In fact, the longer this 31-minute maelstrom rolls on, the more dizzying it becomes, possessing both body and spirit in a grand celebration of destruction and death.
Try as you may, there's just no denying Maligner's Attraction to Annihilation! Continue trying with the new track "Lust for Fire" exclusively HERE, courtesy of Decibel, North America's only monthly metal magazine. Begin trying with the aforementioned "Oath-bound" HERE at Blood Harvest's Bandcamp. Pre-order info for the CD can be found HERE, and pre-order for the vinyl can be found HERE.

Many continents can lay claim to being formative breeding grounds for various pieces of the extreme metal puzzle, but perhaps none were such a melting pot as South America in the 1980s. Bands in Brazil, Chile, and other countries pushed thrash metal to its limits until it blurred into what would later be known as black and death metal, and dressed the whole thing in extreme expressions of occultism and hellfire. With that bed of influence bubbling beneath them, modern-day thrashers Hellish make perfect sense: tightened and refined (but only barely), without diminishing any of the speed-freak tendencies or punkish intensity of their predecessors, and certainly no less devoted to the left hand path.
Coming out of Santiago, Chile in the 2010s, Hellish previously made believers out of thrash fans worldwide with their Unspeakable Axe-released debut, Grimoire. Only two years later, the follow-up album manages to out-pace and out-riff what came before. Classic speed metal-style riffs cut through an atmosphere of evil worthy of Bathory or Possessed - this is formative stuff, once again splashing around in the dark murk between thrash and black metal, and even straight-up heavy metal in the occasional, surprisingly melodic lead parts. But make no mistake: Hellish worship at the twin altars of evil and velocity, and The Spectre of Lonely Souls is a sermon strictly for the already-converted.
