Californian black metallers Gloam stream the entirety of their highly anticipated new EP, Death is the Beginning, through CVLTNation.com. Set for international release on October 13th via Blood Harvest Records on CD and 12" vinyl formats, hear Gloam's Death is the Beginning in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Death is the Beginning is the Gloam's first new material since their malevolent Hex of Nine Heads debut album in 2015. Here, Gloam go from strength to strength, maximizing the acute attention to pacing that so marked Hex of Nine Heads and upping the dynamic details, marching forth with an epic, doom-drenched sort of black metal that's idiosyncratic to the last. Comprising three tracks in a taut 'n' terrifying 19 minutes, Death is the Beginning indeed is a journey, and works essentially like one unified piece, winding the listener through spiritually scabrous terrain. By turns equally mournful and majestic, resigned yet righteous, truly Death is the Beginning for Gloam!

Formed back in 2008, Bloodhunter is one of Spain's leading death metal forces. Led by virtuoso guitarist Fenris and vocalist Diva Satanica, the band released their debut album, Bloodhunter, back in 2014, where they started to create a solid fan-base around the country thanks to their strong live performances and high-quality death metal with a melodic & brutal edge.
Bloodhunter have now finished recording their second album, The End of Faith, whose line-up is completed with bassist Éadrom and magnificent session drummer Marcelo Aires. The result is fantastic and will definitely put Bloodhunter on the map as a force to reckon. Just imagine if Arch Enemy would play death metal - yes, death metal, not aggressive modern heavy metal - with a much more brutal approach.

Essex Thrashers Forged In Black have released their stunning new music video for 'Pay The Price'.
The new video accompanies the song ‘Pay The Price’, taken from the band’s latest and greatest release, the superb, Chris Tsangarides produced Sinner Sanctorum. It’s a powerful track; full of the band’s customary muscular riffing, intricate leads and soaring vocals and lyrically it carries a forceful anti-war message.
The video was created by Andy Pilkington of Very Metal Art, known for his work with US thrash legends Flotsam And Jetsam and UK death metal titans De Profundis and it’s a remarkable, engaging visual feast. The images combine the terrifying destructive power of modern warfare with a poignant reminder of the loss and personal cost that war always entails. The leaders of our nations are called to account, because while they spout their inflammatory rhetoric it is we who are left to Pay The Price!
Forged In Black are the epitome of great heavy metal. With a heart of steel always at the core of everything they do, they reach out and draw in everything that’s great from across the metal map. Their unique take on the glorious metal art has never been more apparent than on the Sinner Sanctorum EP and ‘Pay The Price’ is one of the standout tracks from that headbanging masterpiece.
