Spanish black metal cult Deathwomb premiere the new track "Moloch's Domain" at heavily trafficked web-portal NoCleanSinging.com. The track hails from the band's striking debut album, Moonless Night Sacraments, set for international release on April 19th via Iron Bonehead Productions. Hear Deathwomb's "Moloch's Domain" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Deathwomb are ancient black metal personified. Theirs is a sound at odds with the modern world, brewed in the cauldron of simpler, more idealistic, and most definitely more underground times. With but a four-song demo from 2017 as their previous recording, this power-trio proves their Satanic worth with their first full-length, Moonless Night Sacraments.
Ever aptly titled, Moonless Night Sacraments conjures the lycanthropic spirit of '90s black metal's crudest proponents, lurking largely in Finland, North America, and Brazil. Doubtlessly physical in their profane ruminations, it'd be a gross misnomer to label Deathwomb as "bestial," at least in the more post-millennial definition. Rather, the swarming, oft-swampy surge they employ across Moonless Night Sacraments - suffused with mystical synth, most crucially - bears aesthetic kinship with '90s Demoncy, Havohej, and Black Funeral, early Mystifier, and of course, Beherit's landmark Drawing Down the Moon. Naturally, Deathwomb strive to add to this (un)hallowed canon rather than merely replicate it, so authentic is their (unholy) passion.
As modern life justifiably grinds to a halt, time stands still as Deathwomb offer you Moonless Night Sacraments...partake at your own peril.

Dying Victims Productions announces April 23rd as the international release date for the highly anticipated fourth album of Slovenia's Vigilance, Enter the Endless Abyss.
Born from the cavernous depths of Adelsberg, Slovenia, Vigilance have been unleashing their own brand of heavy metal since Walpurgisnacht 2010. Inspired both by the harmonic arts of the original NWOBHM wave and the sepulchral elements of the first wave of black metal, Vigilance possess a unique crossover appeal to fans of early Iron Maiden and Mercyful Fate, but will also hook in anyone who's into Bathory, Venom, and everything else with a goat on the cover artwork.
Over the years, Vigilance released numerous demos, an EP, and three increasingly well-received albums, firmly fortifying their place in the European underground. No strangers on the live front, they've shared the stage with many bands such as Raven, Archgoat, and Grave Desecrator across the whole of Europe, frequently playing in Germany, Belgium, and Austria. Of the many gigs played, Vigilance have made appearances at such cult festivals as Heavy Sound Festival (Belgium), Raging Death Date (Germany), Old Grave Festival (Romania), a 10-day tour across Europe with Körgull the Exterminator and Wildhunt, and an appearance at the esteemed Party.San Open Air festival in 2017.
With all that experience under the bulletbelts, Vigilance are poised to make their grandest strike yet with Enter the Endless Abyss. Aptly titled, Enter the Endless Abyss is indeed a dark and dynamic plunge into the beyond, but galloping gloriously with the eternal luminescence of HEAVY METAL might! Here, Vigilance make their boldest strides forward in songwriting, expertly working with light and shade to create immediately memorable and yet simultaneously mysterious anthems, epic yet judiciously compact sonic storytelling where head/fistbanging takes center stage and full ensemble playing colors each of those eight tales with finesse and fire. Throughout it all, the dual-guitar work dazzles - truly, intensely DAZZLES - and the lithe, contrapuntal rhythm section supports with equally important panache.
Or, simply put, Enter the Endless Abyss is the new, Now sound of blackened epic metal...either way, Vigilance have at last arrived as conquering kings! Hear the first march with a special promo video for the new track "Stormblade" HERE at Dying Victims' official YouTube channel.

Pre-order here: https://zerofire.bandcamp.com/
Zero Fire is a band whose music strives to combine hard hitting riffs with soaring vocal melodies, all wrapped up in a package where feel, groove and flow is paramount. Born from a collaboration between singer/guitarist Graham King and drummer Erik Thorkildsen, this band conjures up a hard rock sound reminiscent of the 90s and 2000s, yet still has a style all its own.
After sharing the stage with bands like Silent Planet, Hail the Sun and Mandroid Echostar, Zero Fire's new release, Second Sun, shows them expanding and evolving. With riffs to make you bang your head and melodies that won't leave your brain, the band hopes this is an EP that makes you say "Damn, I want to listen to that again" right after it's finished.

Debut full-length 'Sands Of Time' featuring guest performances by members of Cyhra (ex-Amaranthe) and Orphaned Land to be released on May 24; group to perform at major European festivals this summer
M-Theory Audio is proud to announce the signing of Israel's leading progressive metal band, Scardust. The label will reissue the group's acclaimed full-length debut, “Sands of Time,” on May 24 on limited-edition double vinyl (the album's first-ever LP release), digital and compact disc.
The “Sands of Time” reissue precedes major summer festival performances by the band – the UK's Ramblin' Man Fair, where they will perform on the Prog In The Park stage alongside Riverside, Pain of Salvation and Anathema, and at Slovenia's week-long Metaldays, which also features the likes of Dream Theater, Arch Enemy and Demons & Wizards, as well as Taihu Midi Festival in Suzhou near Shanghai, China May 4th.
Mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend, BTBAM) and featuring cover art by Drake Mefestta (Cradle of Filth, Michael Romeo, Devilment), “Sands of Time” was originally self-released. Check out the band’s lyric video for the title track to get an idea of the grandeur, melody and power https://youtu.be/_d2KMTPampI
The new CD reissue will include a bonus acoustic piano demo of the brand-new song “Mist,” while the new gatefold double-LP edition will include the group's 2015 debut EP “Shadow” in its entirety on Side D – the first time that release has been offered on vinyl as well. Both physical formats can be pre-ordered at this location (www.m-theoryaudio.com/store).
“We are very excited to be working with M-Theory Audio, whose philosophy of co-operation between artists mirrors our own. It's great to have the 'Sands of Time' CD released globally, and the pressing of a double vinyl LP which will include our EP 'Shadow' is something that would have been impossible for us to do as an independent band. Signing with M-Theory, as well as working on new material and preparing for summer festivals, makes us feel that the future looks very bright for us, and we can't wait to bring our epic experience to new crowds and new heights.” says SCARDUST vocalist Noa Gruman.
Scardust who have previously performed alongside the likes of Symphony X, Therion and Epica – will next perform live in Tel Aviv, Israel on April 11.

Savage Messiah have announced their new album, Demons, out May 17th via Century Media as well as sharing their new single, ‘Under No Illusions’, the first to be taken from the album. To celebrate the release, the band will also be playing three headline shows in Manchester, London and Glasgow in May. Pre-order the album here.
“This is the first time we’ve ever attempted to play some kind of special album launch shows, and we’re going to pull out all of the stops to make these really memorable events for our fans in the U.K.”
The track is an explosive blend of frenzied riffs with anthemic choruses melded together to form an intense, melodic metal rocket. The video sees footage of the band performing from a string of mainstream festivals last year including the mainstage at Hellfest, Graspop and Download festival.
Demons is Savage Messiah’s fifth studio album and sees the band deliver a fresh new sound that will infect ears and conquer minds. Singer and guitarist Dave Silver describes a band reborn on the new record. “I looked at what we’ve done in the past and knew we could be taking this band way further.”
“The word ‘Demons’ encapsulate the story of the band,” Silver continues. “It’s about rising to the inevitable challenges that everyone faces in pursuit of any higher end goal. The album deals with attempting to conquer both the internal and external demons that perpetually arise and permanently threaten to derail and discourage.”
The group pursued a change of dynamic on the new record by enlisting producer David Castillo. Renowned for his work with metal stalwarts including Opeth, Dimmu Borgir and Soilwork, David produced their recording sessions at Jens Bogrens’ Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. The outcome is a an incredibly varied body of work and a huge step up from previous releases.
Joined by Carcass drummer Dan Wilding and touring drummer Ali Richardson for the Sweden sessions, the band took a spontaneous approach to developing the 11 new tracks that comprise the record.
One of Demons’ biggest surprises is undoubtedly its cover of hit single Parachute by American country/folk Grammy winner Chris Stapleton – cleverly rewired into a hard rock format by trading the banjos and acoustics for loud and proud electricity. Of the cover version, Silver comments, “I noticed the arrangement almost felt like a heavy metal song, so wanted to see what we could do with it.”
With millions of YouTube and Spotify streams and a social media reach extending beyond even some of the metal heroes that influenced them, the band’s focus is to now be heard anywhere and everywhere.
When Dave describes connecting with the streaming audience as “where the roller coaster ride starts in terms of being heard”, it’s because he’s had more insight than most on how technology can shape culture have worked in various roles across the music industry over the last decade.
Having seen changes from the inside as much as the outside, Dave’s experiences have provided enough perspective to help him stay grounded about his band’s accomplishments and aspirations without diminishing his fervent drive to succeed.
Savage Messiah are completed by guitarist David Pear, bassist Mira Slama and now drummer Charly Carreton.

Francesco Paoli on working with director Giovanni Bucci:-
"I met Giovanni Bucci a couple of years ago, while collaborating on his own band ODDKO. We soon became good friends, so we started talking about having him as director for Fleshgod’s new videos. He is a true visionary, with amazing directing and production skills. He’s been making music videos for bands like Korn, and he also has a shining career in the movie industry. We all agreed that he would’ve been the key to a huge step forward for us, visually and artistically, especially on a video like this, which was also extremely complex to produce and shoot. The result is on your screen now, and it's better than any description. Just hit the play button and enjoy."
