Furious Argentine Groove / Thrash unit Granada will be releasing their latest full length "Sincronizado" via Symbol of Domination Prod.
Metal Underground exclusively streamed the music video of the title track of the album, which can be found at this location
Granada was formed in the year 2008 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Founded by Guillermo Estévez (vocals and guitar), the band´s debut show was in 2010 with Black Dahlia Murder (USA), and continued with a series of shows in every possible venue in Buenos Aires and the rest of Argentina. With 03 full lengths and one EP, the band has crossed the border by touring the neighbouring countries and achieving huge admiration from the audiences of all over the world.
Granada achieve their own sound with their 4th album "Sincronizado", recorded at "El Pie Recording Studio" and Chulengo, produced by Guillermo Estévez. The album will be released by Symbol of Domination Prod., and will be distributed by Icarus Records (Argentina) and Blacktape Unorthodox Records (Argentina)
Testimony from the band about the video:
"Taxidermy is the preserving of an animal's body via stuffing or mounting for the purpose of display or study. In the official video, we shot a real Taxidermist working for us, trying to communicate that the process of recording and album or song, or even playing it live is similar to Taxidermy."
Greek metal / rock band, Raw In Sect, have released a new and crazy music video for 'Therion'. The song is taken from the upcoming third album 'Kitro', to be out in September. The video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/GqwHHW76LTY
Filmed in London's Black Island studios by director Peter Lee Scott, the band says the video is mean to reflect the transformation into Therion, which is to "find inner power in a primitive way getting in touch with your instincts."
The song's unique blend of traditional Greek music with rock 'n' roll is, according to RAW IN SECT, meant to "redefine what aggressive/rock music is through a totally different approach than the one that has been known in the music scene.
"Really though, it's about doing something new and artistic instead of repeating the same old patterns of established bands in hopes of securing a career in a declining music industry. Changing the language of the lyrics in Greek, recording live, and not setting on the sound of previous records that was somewhat accepted, are among the risks we took willingly in order to express something new and reach wider audiences."
Raw In Sect is a Greek metal / rock act that has released two full length albums, “Red Flows” (2011) and “Blue Haze” (2014). Possessed by a diverse, surprising and totally unique sound as described by many, the quartet has done several tours performing all over Europe which has gained them a loyal fan base as well as recognition as one of the most deserving bands to rise from the underground.
When the “Red Flows” touring era ended, they went on to record “Blue Haze” and mixed it with nominated Grammy award producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Caspian, Pearl Jam). RAW IN SECT presented a 7 minute animation epic for the self titled song which was praised by fans and members of artistic communities. The release of Blue Haze was followed by a very long touring schedule which included over 150 concerts in venues and festivals almost in every corner of Europe.
2017 finds Raw In Sect preparing to release their new album “Kitro” among other activities. Having performed parts of it in various audiences, people speak of a band that is expected to shake and redefine the sound of the global metal/rock scene.
German melodic thrashers Odium will release "As The World Turns Black" on July 14th via Black Sunset / MDD! The album was recorded and produced at the Gernhart Studio in Troisdorf under the direction of Martin Buchwalter (Tankard, SuidAkrA, a.o.).
Björn Goosses of Killustration (Sodom, Six Feet Under, Death Angel) is responsible for the cover artwork. "As The World Turns Black" will contain nine songs and will be the tenth release from the Frankfurt maniacs, which celebrate their 25th anniversary next year.

Death Always Wins, the forthcoming sophomore album from Melodic Death / Thrash quartet Dead Asylum, is now streaming in its entirety, courtesy of Brave Words! Go forth and stream with impunity at this location.
Dead Asylum will release Death Always Wins on June 2. On the follow-up to 2013 debut General Carnage, the Vancouver, Canada band has sharpened the songwriting to a fine point and bolstered its established muscular attack with a harder rhythmic punch and an even deadlier arsenal of riffs!
Pre-order the album at https://deadasylum.bandcamp.com/album/death-always-wins
A lyric video for the new single is available now at https://youtu.be/kCQeUqu6ET4. The band previously released the official video for "Forgotten Sacrifice," which can be viewed at this location.
With an unexpected combination of thrash and melodeath elements reminiscent of the Gothenburg Sound (At The Gates, Arch Enemy, et al), Dead Asylum's Death Always Wins is one killer listen! The songs on Death Always Wins range from thrashy headbangers, to technical compositions, and 'chantable', heavy metal anthems. While it might seem like their sound covers the spectrum of metal, everything is tied together by brutal dual vocals and melodic leads. Lyrical themes include revolution and political uprising, the apocalypse, and-as the band name alludes-twisted facets of the human psyche. The band's famously intense live shows are about to get fiercer when the new material is left beaten and bloodied on the stage!
Death Always Wins was tracked at Jam Factory Studios in Port Coquitlam, BC; recorded and edited by Roger Mowat; and mix/mastered by Chris Holmes. Pierre-Alain (3mmi Design) was responsible for the album art.
Drummer Samantha Landa in many ways defines Dead Asylum's unbridled energy and inability to ever just stand still. Landa performed with Brazilian Thrashers and Napalm Records artist Nervosa for three months throughout North America and Europe in 2016, including on a tour package that also featured Destruction, Flotsam & Jetsam, and Enforcer. And all the while ran her online business from the road! Landa even served as a Pool Girl on the annual 70000 Tons of Metal cruise.
Dead Asylum will hit the road for the "American SaniTOURium" Tour, beginning in August. Confirmed dates thus far can be found below.
Nervecell have set August 25th as the release date for their forthcoming third album "Past, Present...Torture". The album will be released through Lifeforce Records in most part of the world, while Metal East Records is handling the release in the Middle East region.
WATCH THE FULL TRACK AUDIO TEASER FOR THE NEW SONG "PROXY WAR" HERE
It is a fine line to combine brutality, technical requirements and harsh accessibility in such a way, that the result leads to extreme songs, which listeners like to hear and which they can remember.
Nervecell master that impressively. The addition of Middle-Eastern folklore accents contributes a decisive part to this. The Dubai-based band is, above all, an uncompromising Death Metal band, but the charm of the “special ingredients” always resonates. And this is how Nervecell find to musical differentiation. “Past, Present…Torture” marks the group’s third full-length and is the successor of “Psychogenocide” from 2011.
“Past, Present…Torture” was mixed & mastered by Wojtek and Slawek Wiesawski at Hertz Studios (BEHEMOTH, DECAPITATED, VADER) in Poland, the cover artwork was created by Colin Marks of Rain Song Design (ORIGIN, EXODUS, WHITECHAPEL). The album consists of 13 tracks and is the most extreme and versatile NERVECELL record to date. The title speaks for itself, focusing on the state of the world and where we are all headed as a civilization. “Past, Present…Torture” serves as a concise summary for both, the lyrical message and the musical direction. Offering unpleasant truths and a rigorous death metal sound. Just as you know and expect from the beast from the Middle East...NERVECELL!

It's their jubilee year! 35 years of Tankard!
And a suitable soundtrack can’t be neglected for the occasion. The band's 17th studio album entitled ‘One Foot In The Grave’ will be released on June 2nd, 2017 via Nuclear Blast.
But one week before its release, the iconic Frankfurt-based thrashers will celebrate another remarkable milestone in their career; all of Frankfurt are currently looking forward to the German cup final against Borussia Dortmund at Berlin's Olympic Stadium on May 27th. 30,000 Eintracht Frankfurt fans will be there following their team, and everyone able to watch the match will see Tankard's performance of the club anthem 'Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee' about 30 minutes before kick-off, in front of the Frankfurt stands!
The band has launched an official trailer for this special event over on YouTube here.
The club anthem 'Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee' was recorded and released on a Tankard EP in 2006; the band already had the chance to perform the song in the stadium of the German cup final against Bayern Munich that same year. Since that day, the track can be heard before every Eintracht Frankfurt home game. A re-release of the previously mentioned sold-out EP is tentatively scheduled for autumn 2017.

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.
