Ukrainian Doom / Death metal band Polynove Pole have signed with Moon records! On The Edge Of The Abyss available worldwide via all important digital stores! http://moon.ua/en/muzika-angl/on-the-edge-of-the-abyss.html
Polynove Pole (Ukrainian: “Wormwood Field”) was formed in the fall of 2004 in Lviv, Ukraine.
After the first demo recordings in 2005, the band started to perform at local concerts, and then on rock festivals of western Ukraine and Kyiv. In the beginning of 2008, the first EP “Pure Souls” was officially released, and at the end of the same year a full-length album On Seven Winds as well.
Due to active concert activity and selection of musician line-up, the band came to prominence as one of the leading groups of Western Ukraine. New songs of Polynove Pole were represented in tribute-albums and collections of Ukrainian rock music.
The band’s next EP, Under the Cold Stone, was released in 2009 and became the heaviest and the most melodic at that time in the discography.
Since 2010, a long pause has taken place in the history of the band. After taking time off, the band joined forces with new members and resumed work on new material. The band resurgence started in November 2017, with a new release, On The Edge Of The Abyss.
Polynove Pole delivered the record with lyrics that appeared in Ukrainian and English for the first time.

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Annihilist are a groove driven melodic death metal act that offers the shredding craft of European acts such as Soilwork and Arch Enemy with the all out assault of US acts such as Lamb of God and Unearth. The band are currently on tour across Australia and New Zealand while performing at festival events such as Blacken Open Air, Under The Southern Cross Fest, and Heavy AF Festival. Coinciding with the tour, the band will be reissuing their debut EP titled 'Vol.1' through Truth Inc Records.
"We are excited to be sharing our music with a fresh audience worldwide through the backing of Truth Inc Records. 'Vol.1' will give heavy music fans a heady dose of the Annihilist sound before we release our full length debut album later this year. The new album is a step up in almost every way. We’ve learned so many things since forming in 2014, especially how we can improve from the EP in terms of songwriting, production, and live sound. Our new material has made us feel like beginners at our own craft, having to relearn everything we thought we knew about our instruments.” - Josh Voce (Guitarist)

Established in 2014, Annihilist are a metal band from Melbourne, Australia, loaded with their self-released debut EP Vol. 1 from Nov 2015. With influences extending from all branches and styles of heavy music, Annihilist’s sound blurs the lines between European melodic death metal and the new wave of American heavy metal neatly tied together by their progressive style of songwriting. The Annihilist sound is said to be "an undeniably potent shot of metallic adrenaline which leaves a very strong, and very favourable, impression behind.” (NoCleanSinging.com).
Annihilist are currently playing shows throughout Australia in support of their Debut EP. They have performed in New South Wales, Victoria, & Tasmania so far, alongside many great Australian contemporaries such as Boris The Blade, Hollow World, Whoretopsy, Hadal Maw, & Orpheus Omega with plans to travel further abroad. Annihilist have released two professional music videos to date and are currently working on their second studio release. Annihilist’s showcase around Australia is an example of the bands aspirations to tour the country even more extensively in the near future.

The band comments:
"We are very proud to present our new music video 'Mission Commando'. The speed and intensity of the song fits very well the theme of the video that documents our recent trek through Europe. Touring is a relentless fast paced life style and this is the perfect soundtrack to go with the images we captured last fall. Enjoy!"
Warcall is inspired by Iron Maiden, Metallica, Motorhead, Dissection and Slayer, their music is fast, aggressive, melodic and dramatic. Unleashing three well-received albums under their bullet-belts (‘Demonarchy’, ‘Blood, Guts and Dirt’, ‘III’), their latest "Invaders" is a concept release based on humans fighting back an alien invasion with a message of fighting oppression, resisting, re-conquering, but without knowing if it is really over.

Today PrimitaiI premiere the video for brands new track “Overdrive” with MetalTalk. Check it out here: http://www.metaltalk.net/news_eighteen/primitai_overdrive_premiere.php
Here‘s what the band had to say about it:
"This was the first song we wrote for this album, it's about how it feels to be firing on all cylinders again. We tell this through the tale of a Mad Max style character, knocking down everyone who stands in his way, settling old scores before carrying on his journey. The song has all that euphoria and drive channelled into it, alternating between fast, slamming riffs and big melodic chord progressions topped with soaring guitar and vocal harmonies. Our drummer Jonny beats the hell out of the kit and Sergio and I seem to be competing who can play more notes in their guitar solo, we really felt off the chain! " Serj

We started writing our material in February 2017 and recorded our music during August and December 2017. Finally we released our record "I wander alone" on April 9th 2018 and it is available as a digipak from our shop. The band currently consists of 2 musicians. Marina plays all keys and synths.

Danish Thrash / Power metallers, Manticora, are presenting the cover artwork for their upcoming (8th) album - a stunning picture, painted by the extremely talented Danish painter David Troest (www.facebook.com/david.troest). As the new album "To Kill To Live To Kill" is another Manticora concept double-album, based on the thriller/horror novel that lead singer, Lars F. Larsen has written, the artwork resembles the stories of the novel.
"We have always tried out new cover artwork artists for each album, so when looking for the perfect person to give justice to the novel and the two albums, we wanted someone who'd be able to grasp the essence of the stories within the book, and when looking at David's pictures in general, it's evident for even the feeble-minded that he's that exact guy. He also lives less than an hour away from us, so it was a win-win situation for everyone to be able to meet up and do corrections on the front cover and all the other pictures that'll appear in the booklet. We're already beginning the work for the second album as well, so we can follow the release schedule of having the albums out 12 months apart."
The two concept albums, which are a part of a grandiose concept, based on the thriller/horror novel that lead singer, Lars F. Larsen has written, will be released as two separate albums, one year apart.
The novel itself is scheduled for a May 2018 release, followed by the first album, which will see the light of day on August 3rd, 2018, released by ViciSolum Records, worldwide.
The music was recorded and mixed in Hansen Studios, with World-famous producer, Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Destruction, a.o.) who also produced the first two Manticora albums back in the last millenium, and vocals were recorded with Tommy Hansen at Jailhouse studios (Helloween, Beyond Twilight, Jorn, a.o.). Tommy has previously produced five albums for the band.
Manticora have released 7 critically acclaimed albums, since 1999, and toured numerous times around Europe as well as in the US + played at prestigious festivals, such as Wacken Open Air, Sweden Rock Festival, ProgPower USA, etc.

This April and May, Chicago post-metallers Snow Burial will embark on an eleven-date European tour with Cornwall doom outfit Monolithian. Beginning in the United Kingdom on April 23rd, circling through the continent, and closing with London's acclaimed Desertfest on May 5th, this tour will be Snow Burial's second trip across the pond.
Snow Burial recently recorded at the famed Electrical Audio in early 2018, crafting a split 7-inch with Iowa City’s doom maestros Aseethe (Thrill Jockey). The tapes and vinyl will be released courtesy of Hand Of Death Records.
The band commented, "We are beyond excited to get back to Europe and hit the road with our good friends in Monolithian. The opportunity to be a part of Desertfest and spend two weeks getting loud across an ocean is amazing and humbling. Add to that the chance to bring with us a brand new split tape with Aseethe from Hand of Death Records and we're on top of the world. "
Formed after a Shiner reunion show, Snow Burial established themselves in the American Midwest scene and released twin EPs Oxblood Siren (2013) and Oxblood Tides (2014). Through promoting the EPs and extensive regional touring, the band earned a reputation for their crushing sound and performances.
Following positive reviews, tours, and airplay, the band released their inaugural LP Victory In Ruin in January 2016. Snow Burial continued touring the US and UK in 2017, featuring an opening slot for Scott Kelly and Sanford Parker’s project Mirrors for Psychic Warfare, with coverage from Metal Hammer Magazine and multiple blogs. In spring 2017, they proudly released a new song “Burn Down the Crown,” on the Unpresidented: DIY vs. Donald Trump benefit compilation.
