In summer 2017, Spanish metal group Rosslyn recorded their first full-length album, Soul In Sanctuary, in Estudios Inguz (Zaragoza), where it was also mixed and mastered. Soul In Sanctuary shows an absolute crystallization of the Rosslyn sound; heavy metal that rides between traditional and epic.
The album features eight original tracks reaching some 45 minutes of sonic sounds. Throughout the album, the listener is faced with acoustic parts, followed by the most classic of distortions, instrumental bridges, melodic vocals, epic choirs and guitar solos.
Two prevailing themes stand out in the lyrics. Medieval plots (stories of kings, conflict, knights and the clergy), and the literary (plots taken from authors such as Edward Gorey, or George R.R. Martin).
Soul In Sanctuary shows Rosslyn at their very best. The classic sounds of traditional heavy metal have been revisited and built upon to create something brand new and unique in the bands cannon.
Soul In Sanctuary | Released September 4th, 2018 on Sliptrick Records

The new video / single will be available via YouTube next Wednesday, September 19th, and many are already eager to watch it, and it's not surprising, because its video 'Colony' (In Flames' cover) alreadyhas more than 640,000 views.
'Dark Seed' has already been played by the band at Granito Rock Festival (Madrid, Spain), where they were headliners with the Germans 'Primal Fear', delighting the metalheads of the place. It is a strong and powerful song that forces you to headbang from the first second.
SynlakrosS plays a Melodic Death Metal / Modern Metal with a personal touch, and that is captivating a growing base of fans from around the world, being chosen band of the month of July by the North American platform 'Metal Fortress', all the more reason to don't miss the premiere of its new material.
The video has been recorded and directed by Sergio Mangas and Barbara Navarro, team with whom they already worked on 'Colony' music video, and both the songs and the new album have been recorded and produced by Facundo Novo at Novo Estudios (Valencia, Spain) the producer of the second album of the band 'Death Bullets For A Forajido'.
Aeolian, melodic death metal group from Mallorca, Spain, has released a new lyric video from their upcoming album Silent Witness. "Return of the Wolf King" draws inspiration from the disastrous culling of wolves at Yellowstone national park, and how it serves as an example how even well meaning human influence can lead to an ecological catastrophe.

Spanish black metal mystics Empty premiere the new track "The Night Remains For Who Is" at heavily trafficked web-portal IndyMetalVault.com. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated fifth album, Vacio, set for international release on September 28th via Osmose Productions. Hear Empty's "The Night Remains For Who Is" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Four years passed by when Spain's Empty offered their previous superb album Etica Profana Negativa. In this occasion, we have their fifth full-length work. Here, we can find an Empty in a phenomenal creative moment of evolution, since Empty has brought their proposal a step beyond. It´s hard to mention any other band from the world scene with this vision and attitude when making music. Black metal? Sure, with this label the album could be defined, but it would not be the most suitable way…
Vacío is an overwhelming and desolating mixture of emotions and sensations. It´s inspired by the book La Lluvia Amarilla ("The Yellow Rain") by Julio Llamazares. This album shows a long, bitter, and fateful journey to oblivion and nothingness. Its own title reflects the nature of the message: the memory of Death, which from an ominous shadow, it became a tangible and palpable presence; the blind acceptance of the fate that removes our trace and dilutes our existence in time.
Vacío transforms all this pile of sentiments into 46 minutes of music through seven tracks. A soprano contributed to some passages in the album. Also MR.J.M. from Ataraxy collaborated with keyboards. The band dares to play a cover version of Arcana, and so they are once more pioneers in exploring the darkest corridors of the human psyche.
The atmosphere surrounding this album takes to a terribly dark mental state - pessimist but at the same time brutally realistic. The band is away from the topics and stereotypes of black metal, and offer an amazing sample of honesty and realism. This is one of those cases that words can´t describe what one feels in some circumstances; however, the music draws a scenario that performs the message and the feel perfectly. The amazing and singular artwork helps one to understand the context of this album, where pictures and texts complement this new work of Empty.
Without any doubt, we are before "The Swangsong of the Black Swan” of the band, recommended for people with judgment and people who look for something more than fun and banality in music.
In the meantime, hear the new track "The Night Remains For Who Is" in its entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of IndyMetalVault.com. Also see & hear the previously revealed video for "The Yellow Rain" HERE at Osmose's official YouTube channel.
