Italian thrash metal act Haniwa has released a new album called "Helleven" via Qua Rock Records. The music is rapid, groovy and catchy, at times with melodic openings. This album is the result of an hard work, made of sweat, passion and attitude, where Haniwa unleashed all their experience and musical impetuousness. The first video taken from the single "Haniwa" will be available soon.
About the new album, the band says: “We have composed 11 songs where we believe that our unusual and personal vision of the music is contained, including the listening of totally different music genres in decades but represented in the Haniwa’s way. Haniwa means brutality, aggression, melody and rhythm with a fresh and direct attitude, which takes natural inspiration from the single elements background, but the explosive mix goes beyond the sum of them. The album is the evolution of an instinctive EP, played by impulse, which allowed the band to create a synergy and a compositional maturity that permitted within a year to conceive Helleven”.
Amsterdam-based metal band, Seita released the single and video for "Call It Evolution" on May 5th, 2017. The single is available in digital format only on the main music online platforms.
Check out here the video Call It Evolution: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQousD0_wmg
"Call It Evolution" is a chaotic snapshot of mankind’s often contradictory and self-destructive path towards so-called progress.
Raw, intense, and unapologetic: the band’s sonic assault pushes boundaries, while remaining true to its roots in aggressive and brutal music.
Their focus is more on the discovery of different musical landscapes, as a means to express their message, rather than self- identifying with a specific sub-genre or trend.
"The ones that pull the trigger must be ready to die..."
Unscripted, unfiltered and featuring NO "genre-fication" whatsoever, "It's Electric!" is a weekly window into the mind of Metallica's Lars Ulrich. Hear music that excites this great Dane, as well as chats with artists who inspire him...all wrapped in magnificently mindless banter!
Airing every Sunday at 3:00 PM PST with an encore every Monday at 3:00 AM PST.

Legendary New Jersey thrashers, Overkill, have kept the machine running strong in 2017 with the release of their highly-acclaimed eighteenth album, ‘The Grinding Wheel’, as well as adding another US tour under their belts. Today, the band welcomes another addition to Overkill’s history with their new drummer, Jason ‘Sticks’ Bittner (Shadows Fall, Flotsam And Jetsam).
"Overkill would like to announce its newest member, behind the kit and steering the ship, Jason ‘Sticks’ Bittner," comments Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth. "We wholeheartedly would like to thank Eddy ‘The Mexicutioner’ Garcia for holding down the ship and keeping the momentum up for the band over this past year plus. Eddy has and always will be part of the Overkill machine. Jason is a long-time friend of the band and his abilities have always spoken for themselves. Let the touring continue... onward-upwards!"
Jason ‘Sticks’ Bittner states:
"When my phone rang about 2 months ago and Blitz said 'Hey, me and DD are wondering if you would be interested in joining?' It really didn't take much for me to write back a one word answer… ABSOLUTELY! I am extremely excited to be a part, once again, of thrash metal history, and I cannot wait to get out on the road and wreck stages across the world with the 'Mean Green Killing Machine!'"

It's really not often that you get such high quality albums from new bands in countries like Singapore, and on Transcending Obscurity Asia, here's Assault, playing a scintillating mix of death metal and thrash metal with rare emotional depth. No Clean Singing premiered their first official video HERE.
Assault are Singapore's best kept secret. They're playing scintillating death / thrash metal with rare ferocity coupled with melodic sensibilities in a way that the intensity remains unabated throughout. With guest appearances from notable band members of Chthonic (Taiwan) and Nothnegal (The Maldives), they're touted as one of the best emerging bands from Asia. Additionally, 'The Fallen Reich' features artwork from none other than the world renowned artist Mark Riddick. It's certainly one of the most exciting and promising albums in recent times and will set new standards for bands in their region.

On The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh, Madrost has found its definitive sound, one that is much more dynamic and darker than previous album Into the Aquatic Sector. The forthcoming album picks up where Into the Aquatic Sector left off and takes the sound to a whole new, previously unexplored level. Vocalist/guitarist Tanner Poppitt comments: "I wanted a broader scope to work with and have the listener think about what they are listening to." Last but certainly not least, Tony Koehl's (The Black Dahlia Murder, Putrid Pile, Malignancy, etc) cover art also represents a huge step forward for the band, as his artistic interpretations tie everything together into a cohesive whole. The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh was mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Studios, and mixed and recorded by Mark Rivas of Rivas Studios. The album was produced by Mark Rivas and Tanner Poppitt.
Today, Slovenian power-thrashers Eruption stream the entirety of their highly anticipated third album, Cloaks of Oblivion, at web-portal InvisibleOranges.com. Set for international release on May 2nd via Xtreem Music, hear Eruption's Cloaks of Oblivion in its entirety exclusively HERE.
While some thrash metal bands tend to sharpen their sound, making it more aggressive, Slovenia's Eruption decide to step out from their traditional Bay Area-influenced sound to a more US power/heavy metal sound in the vein of bands like Sanctuary, Helstar, and Vicious Rumors while still retaining their usual Forbidden, Vio-lence, and Death Angel touches, recording one hell of a great album with a killer production and fantastic cover artwork by Alex Boca.
