Italians Heretic’s Dream have released their first new material since their 2016 album Floating State Of Mind. It comes in the form of a video and single for the track A Price To Pay. Since releasing their last album, the band have gone through a line-up change but now they are back and once again, firing on all cylinders. Heretic’s Dream are currently working on their fourth studio album, due to be released via Sliptrick Records in Autumn 2018 and with the current working title, Resilience.
Here’s what the band had to say about their new single:-
“The song is about the dichotomy lived by a parent, between the consciousness that his child deserves to live his life and to have his own experiences (even the toughest) and the temptation of preserving him from dangers and suffering.
“To love you is to die a bit, and make a deal with Hell / to love you is to dance with fear/to love you is to let you go, my words just run in circles”, states the chorus, while the video tells the story of a child divided between two fighting parents.
The child’s love overcomes the adults’ barriers and the two separated parents even end up meeting each other in a common embrace with their child. Waiting for a phone to ring is A Price To Pay when you love someone who learns daily to become a man in this world.”

Italian Black / Death cult Demonomancy premiere the new track "The Day of the Lord" at heavily trafficked web-portal NoCleanSinging.com. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated second album, Poisoned Atonement, set for international release on February 23rd via Invictus Productions. Hear Demonomancy's "The Day of the Lord" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
For a decade now, Demonomancy have been steadfast pillars of the bestial metal idiom, perfecting it over the course of two EPs and 2013's definitive debut album, Throne of Demonic Proselytism. However, whilst working with the same strident fundaments - ancient South American black/death, the rigorous Blasphemy / Beherit axiom, early proponents of metal primitivism like Profanatica and VON - hereby with Poisoned Atonement do the power-trio leave behind all pretenders and stake out a new, defiant claim of sulphurous metal magic.
Portended by the ominous new track on the 2016 split with Finnish comrades Witchcraft, Poisoned Atonement portrays a Demonomancy no longer bounded by subgenre dictates. Here, they explore all the craggiest corners of their songwriting acumen, finessing forth an endlessly burly yet richly dynamic soundfield that verily approximates the most mysterious echoes of the grand abyss. Smothering, mind-melting violence collides head on with vortextural ritualism, wild-child heavy metal abandon with austere, locked-in grind: Demonomancy not so much leave no stone unturned as they do simply CRUSH it into feeble dust under their massive, ever-masterful boots. To begin understanding the multi-layered miasma of Poisoned Atonement is to gaze deeply into its cover art...
As such, Demonomancy is the sublimation of primitive human impulses morphed into aural spears that suffocate consciousness in a perennial leprous embrace. Corrosive verses burn superficial organic tissues, revealing the pulsating flesh exposed in its primordial obscenity. In this atoning pilgrimage, the unbearable guilt gives birth to inner demons that lacerate the mendacious drape covering our hidden and irrational world. "We praise the morbid and forbidden Bestiality to be rejoined with our primeval dimension," state the band. "We praise the diseased and morbid Spirit bounded by the mortal coil’s festering chains. The body is merely a monumental epitaph. Metal of Death – Methodical Chaos."
Bow in fealty and begin your Poisoned Atonement with Demonomancy... Obeisance continues with "The Day of the Lord" HERE, courtesy of NoCleanSinging.com. Obeisance begins with the previously revealed "Fiery Herald Unbound (The Victorious Predator)" HERE at Invictus' Bandcamp, where the album can also be pre-ordered. That aforementioned cover as well as track-listing are as follows:

Italian Extreme metallers 5rand are proud to present their new video-clip "Erase", the last single taken from their debut album "Sacred/Scared"!
The video is filmed and edited by Martina L. McLean (Sanda Movies) and it's available on band's YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/ozIPtwRkdWo
Julia, front-woman of the band, says: "As you can see, it's not easy to leave your eyes from this video during the 5 minutes of the running time of the song. Through it Martina is succeeded to keep fully the sense of the song: the words that a psychopath says just before he kills his "beloved" victim. So prepare yourself to a devastating, noisy and claustrophobic experience”.

Iron Bonehead Productions sets April 20th as the international release date for the highly anticipated debut album of Portugal's Summon, Parazv Il Zilittv, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Summon emerged in late 2016 as a gathering between N. and R. in which they decided to follow a sonority that transcends their soul and where they could give it a more cavernous feel, with an intensity of deep agony. Shortly thereafter, N. decides to move forward with composite themes, and then they decide to call J. to seal the covenant of a deadly entity. The lyrics are handled by N. in which he invokes all the blackness and splendour of death, the burden of enduring and wandering in a world of human flesh, and the infinite thirst for mass slaughter converting mankind into a cloak of bones.
What thusly emerged was Summon's debut EP, Aesthetics of Demise, which was released by Iron Bonehead during the summer of 2017 to widespread critical acclaim. A swirling, sulphurous mass of molten death-doom, Aesthetics of Demise was aptly titled, but on the fuller and more fleshed-out Parazv Il Zilittv, the trio both dive deeper into the murk and emerge into clearer dimensions. By no means do Summon here abandon their expertly crafted monolith of death-doom, but they largely (and wisely) leave behind the obfuscating murk which has become so de rigueur (read: TRENDY) in the millennial metal underground. Instead, each passage patiently unfolds and establishes its intended texture, terrorizing the mind and body with oppressive physical/spiritual weight - even (and especially) when stripped back to foggy, tension-inducing mist. The consequently linear songwriting soon works its sepulchral magic, as lurching 'n' lumbering riffs are stretched into hammering trances, sending undulating waves of absolute ritualism deep into the listener's core. Which is all to say nothing of the production on Parazv Il Zilittv, which somehow manages to make Summon sound creepier despite the clearer and more cutting recording style.
With Aesthetics of Demise, Summon proved that their smashed-psyche sorcery transcended the usual "sepulchral death metal" tropes. Now, with Parazv Il Zilittv, they prove that that sorcery is potent enough to simultaneously open and close the crypt of time eternal. How far will you step in/out?

Argentinian symphonic power metal band Preludio Ancestral reveal the first single, cover, and track-listing for their forthcoming fourth album, Oblivion, which will see international release on March 21st via Fighter Records (except Asia). That first track, "King of Silence," can be heard exclusively HERE.
Formed back in 2005 by guitarist Leo Gatti, the band released a demo in that same year, but it wasn't until 2012 when a first EP and their debut album, Hacia lo Inmortal (Towards the Immortal), was released, being followed by another EP a year later and their second and third albums - Kybalion in 2015 and El Misterio de la Pasión Divina (The Mystery of Divine Passion) in 2016, respectively. Preludio Ancestral have been gaining quite a recognition not only in their native country, where they even opened for acts like Rhapsody of Fire and Stratovarius, but also around the world.
Preludio Ancestral's Oblivion will be a magnificent opus of an epic-painted power metal with symphonic arrangements and awesome guitar work, where various European vocalists and Argentinian musicians give form to an album that will be the delight of any lover of this genre.
"King of Silence," the first track to be revealed from Oblivion, can be heard HERE at Fighter Records' official YouTube channel.

Italian Occult Alchemists Necroart are back after 3 years of silence with the new stunning single Caino: https://youtu.be/QmKDkEfnbLQ
"Caino" is a strong come back by these pioneers of extreme music. Born and grown up taking influences from the 90’s extreme metal sonorities (read Moonspell and the early Swedish Death Metal scene), the band renewed its sound focusing on a more progressive yet extreme approach in the vein of Arcturus and Schammasch, starting a new journey into obscure territories and esoteric themes.
The new album is scheduled later during 2018 via The Goatmancer Records.

Death metal classicists Rotheads premiere the new track "Sewer Fiends" at Decibel magazine's website. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated debut album of the same name, Sewer Fiends, set for international release on January 22nd, 2018 via Memento Mori. Hear Rotheads' "Sewer Fiends" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Hailing from Romania, the putrid ensemble of Rotheads was formed in Bucharest back in 2014 as an old-school death metal side-project to the experimental doom / noise / stoner-improv band Keeng Ra'at; both bands contained the same three members. By 2015, five songs were written, and recordings began in December of that year. Ultimately, six songs (plus intro and outro) came out in April 2016 as the Unfazed by Death demo, which turned out to be a remarkable, sick trip into the bowels of murky and foul-smelling death metal. In the meantime, another guitarist joined the band, and the original bassist left and rejoined later on. The original drummer and vocalist also left the band in August, and another drummer has since joined, while the vocals are now handled by the original guitarist. Rotheads have played only a few times live, the most memorable being two gigs around Romania with the legendary Sadistic Intent.
"Aptly fucking titled" is an understatement when it comes to Sewer Fiends. Here, Rotheads take their aggregate influences - particularly from the classic early '90s Finnish scene (Abhorrence, early Sentenced, Demigod, Depravity), as well as other timeless crypt dwellers such as Autopsy, Incantation, Carnage, Accidental Suicide, Grave, and Asphyx - and proceed to create a mesmerizing murky 'n' moody work with their debut album. The sewage is piled high and plentifully, as foul 'n' fetid riffs flow fast and freely, but always with a clearly discernible direction; after all, Rotheads are firmly grounded in the timeless songwriting style of old-school death metal, where feeling and texture are paramount over technique and other flashy nonsense. And those riffs continue to roll ever forward, malevolently and majestically, just like a (filth-strewn) tank. And yet, amidst all this crunch and carnage lay a layering of eerie melody atop, evoking fresh crypts opening slowly or the tension of wandering further into tomb-like sewers. Indeed, Rotheads are as aptly named as their album is titled, and we dare you to emerge from their moldy embrace completely clean - there's just no way to wash off this horror!
As an appetizer, just stare deeply into Cesar Valladares' cryptic cover art. And, with mixing and mastering courtesy of Javier Felez at Moontower Studios, it's all but guaranteed that Rotheads' Sewer Fiends will be one of the best (if not THE BEST) death metal debuts of the year! Hear for yourself exclusively HERE, courtesy of Decibel, North America's only monthly metal magazine. Also hear the previously revealed track "Rats in the Walls" HERE at Memento Mori's official YouTube channel.
