Alpha Omega Management is excited to announce the signing of the Turkish metallers Pitch Black Process (aka PBP)! The band's latest effort, "Derin", was released in December 2016 in Turkey on Atlantis Yapim/EMP Label Group and on EMP Underground/SPV in Europe.
Comments the band:
"Stoked to announce that we just joined Alpha Omega’s family which is one of the best and fast growing management and booking firms of recent times. We are very excited to see what the future hold for us on this new journey with Alpha Omega’s great team. Stay tuned for the news \m/"
Alpha Omega Management adds:
"We are truly thrilled welcoming these great hard working guys in Pitch Black Process to our roster family! They've conquered their audience wherever they've played so far. With their right attitude, musical ingredients and tenacity, PBP are ready for bigger stages. Stay tuned for next announcements!"
Pitch Black Process, formerly known as Affliction, was initially formed in 1999. Their first two albums “One Reality” (out in May 2003) and “Execution is Necessary” (released in July 2007) got very good response nationwide and also from abroad. In November 2009 they hit the road for their first European tour playing over 20 gigs (being the longest tour which any Turkish band had ever made abroad until then), followed up by the 18-shows European tour with Varbringer, in February 2010. Before the tour with Warbringer, Pitch Black Process (back then still "Affliction") signed a sponsorship deal with one of the most well-known guitar companies in the world, PRS, which was another ‘debut’ for Turkey. None of any Turkish bands had signed a sponsorship agreement with such a big brand in music industry.
Due to some misleading information in the cyber world and abroad, Affliction made a hard decision and they changed the name of the band after 12 years and they decided to move forward as Pitch Black Process. In January 2011 the band went to Sweden to record their 3rd album, with the well-known producer Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Soilwork, etc) at Dugout Studios, but due some unexpected delays the album came out finally in June 2013. In September 2013, Pitch Black Process played on main stage at the 82nd Izmir International Fair, being the first ever metal band to play on the fair’s history. In 2015, Pitch Black Process became part of EVH and Fender. In November 2015 the band returned to Dugout Studios to record their 4th album. After 4 weeks of production “Derin” was completed as a result of amazing chemistry between the band and Bergstrand. The album, with 2 old and well-known Turkish song covers and 3 English-Turkish mixed songs, is a very special album for Pitch Black Process. "Derin" was released in December 2016, in Turkey on Atlantis Yapim/EMP Label Group and on Ellefson Music Productions/SPV in Europe.

Turkish progressive death metal band Carnac return with 9 hard and heavy tracks on their new album, Times Undone. This is an intense and guttural experience, greatly expanding on the bands original sound and marks another step in the constant evolution of the 5 members of the group. The recent lyrics video for Cessation, the opening track for the album, is an excellent example of where Carnac are heading and great way to kick start the album.
Times Undone takes on the story of a daughter escaping with her father from the invasion of their land by hordes, while gradually losing her friends and loved ones to sacrifice, rape and much more. The 46-minute effort blends death metal and black metal in a progressive manner. It also sees the band adapt a much darker sound.
The album was mixed and mastered by Achilleas Kalantzis (Aenaon, Katavasia, Varathron) and will be released in digital format via Sliptrick Records. Physical copies will follow at a later date.
Times Undone | Released worldwide via Sliptrick Records on May 26th, 2017
Burak Yenitepe – Vocals
Nurhacý Çeri – Guitar
Ozan Turakine – Guitar
Baybora Topaloðlu – Drums
Ünal Akünal – Bass

Turkish Folk Metal duo Yasru have signed a distribution deal with Wormholedeath Records to release their new album "Börübay".
Release dates TBA soon.
Founded in 2007 by Berk Öner under the name "Sidre" as a one man band project. With the change of interests, subjects and melodies so did the name to "Yasru" in 2009, which means 'mystery, secret' in old Turkic(Gokturk) language. Yasru, is inspired by ancient Turkic culture and folklore, takes the life, beliefs, writings and epic stories of the people at that time. Songs are intensively lyrical and epic. In 2012 Yasru released its first promo album "Öd Tengri Yasar" through web to its listeners. With the success of promo album Berk decided to add other members to the band for concert requests. From that time on one man band became an officially known band.
With the new members Berk decided to revise the promo album with more high grade recordings and with a new song, then released this album for sale through official music channels like iTunes and CDbaby. Up to now the band reached to its fans through YouTube and Facebook. In late 2015 Yasru started to work on new album called "Börübay'; at the same time they have covered and released a song called "Nazar Eyle" to the bands listeners as a new year gift, written and composed by Baris Manço who is well-known and loved, both in Turkey and globally. With that they have also commemorate Baris Manço who inspired the band greatly.

Turkish technical death metal assassins CARNOPHAGE will release their sophomore full-length via Unique Leader Records this Fall. Titled Monument, the nine track punisher was recorded by Unsal Ozata at Studio Deep (Burial Invocation, Cenotaph, Decaying Purity, Inhuman Depravity etc.), mixed and mastered by Sasha Borovykh at TsunTsun Productions (Cerebral Effusion, Soils Of Fate, Epicardiectomy, Fleshbomb etc.), and comes adorned in the tormented, Baroque-era influenced cover art of Cihan Engin. Boasting an inexorable assault of jackhammering blasts, churning riffs, and inhuman death grunts, Monument is true exercise in controlled chaos and, following an eight-year dormancy, finds the band at the peak of their methodical and unapologetically diabolical ingenuity.
Monument will be released September 23rd, 2016 via Unique Leader Records. In the meantime check out "At The Backside Of Our Civilization" at THIS LOCATION.
Fresh, dark and extremely powerful are only a few of the best ways to accurately describe Lacuna Coil’s latest opus 'Delirium', which encompasses the strength and heavy approach of thrash metal from the 90’s twisted with goth elements into a modern style. Now, the group proudly presents the album’s first official music video for its gripping title track 'Delirium' which was directed by Michael Winkler (iconographic).
Cristina Scabbia states: "We filmed our parts for this video in one evening while we were on the US tour this past May. We used a Go-Pro against a black backdrop and we wanted something that would be purposely rough, something that could remind some weird lost videos found after years and years.
The whole video edited together with the parts filmed by the director with an actress turned out as a very strange sort of a trip, where a girl tries to tight up memories and details together to try to find her sanity back, somehow. I really like some of the scenes as they reminded me some kind of Korean horror movies vibe and it is totally fitting the ‘Delirium' vibe and concept. It also leaves a lot to the imagination, so thanks for checking it out and enjoy."
