Spanish gothic metal combo Rainover entered MathLab Recording Studio today to start tracking their sophomore album. Following the success of their debut platter “Transcending the Blue and Drifting Into Rebirth” this new record is a huge step ahead for the band, both in term of songwriting and identity.
Carlo Bellotti Stated:
“Today we started the production of Rainover‘s new album at MathLab Recording Studio. It has taken along time to become reality but we have done a great pre-production job with the songs in Spain and we can’t wait to finally listen to them finished. The band’s identity is now stronger and the musicians have such a great experience and conviction after 4 years of touring, festivals, songwriting and promotion. This record is darker but also more epic and melodic. I am so proud to be the producer of Rainover’s music again. I would like to thank the band and Jonathan Mazzeo for their constant trust. Wait and see…”
The band will record the album with their new guitar player Antonio Garcia.

“We are so excited. This will be our first proper release and it’s been such a long time coming! Fans are constantly asking us for CD’s at every gig we play, and now we have not only got a new CD to give them, but anyone owning a copy of I can say that they have every Pelugion recording ever made so far! The CD sounds bad-ass and we really hope everyone enjoys it. We would like to thank everyone who has put the time and effort into the EP over the years, it means a lot to the three of us. Thank you all! We look forward to Bloodstock now, still can’t believe we’re playing it really. See you in the pit!”

Singer, Bjørn Bølling Nyholm, says:
"We chose «Bitter Harvest» as the first single for «Distant Thunder» because we believe it represents us as a band in the best possible way - it has a catchy and bluesy main riff, a strong southern vibe, and memorable hooks both melodically and lyrically - and the video shows both the energy that the song sparks in us as well as the main theme of it".
Black Swamp Water features Kim Langkjær Jensen, former drummer of death metal bands Dawn of Demise, Illdisposed and Koldborn. Other than Kim, the band consists of singer Bjørn Bølling Nyholm, bass player Jeppe Birch Friis, and the two guitarists Jan Geert and Martin Lykke Hansen.
Black Swamp Water is old school hard rock and heavy metal with obvious references to the bands like Black Sabbath, Ozzy and Corrosion Of Conformity with a howdy to the southern rock scene.
The Tue Madsen produced- & mixed debut album «Chapter One» from 2016 gave the band a reputation as a highly energetic live act with great reviews and airplays to follow on both MyRock and National Danish Radio.
Two years after the debut album Black Swamp Water is now ready to release their second album «Distant Thunder» to the world through Mighty Music on August 24th.

Italian groovy melodic death metal band Bighate released a new music video Hybrid via Inverse Records. It's a link between Death Wish EP (released in 2017) and an upcoming new album.
WATCH the music video: https://youtu.be/1mSd4fz2tvU
Vocalst Heleonore comments:
"The topics covered tell about werewolves and ancient curses that give life to real black chronicles. Sound is close to Melodic Death Metal with modern influences."
Bighate is formed back in 2014 by Andy and Heleonore. They tried to mix their different musical taste, basically bounded to death, thrash and groove metal, to reach a common point. Band is currently working on a full-length album.
"Hybrid" is available on all digital platforms worldwide.

Italian Heavy Metal band Tytus, which signed a deal with Fighter Records in December 2017, are finishing the recordings of their sophomore album to be entitled "Rain After Drought" and soon will reveal cover art, first single and track-list as well as a definite release date for it which is expected for late 2018 or early 2019 through Fighter Records.
Tytus was born in Trieste (Italy) in 2014, releasing their first recording in form of a very limited 7"EP entitled "White Lines" in early 2015. Later on, the band got signed to Sliptrick Rec. which released their debut album "Rises" in October 2016, receiving a fairly good acceptance in the underground Heavy Metal scene.
In summer 2017, Tytus got in touch with Fighter Records which finally signed the band in December of the same year while the recording process was happening. It's been a long process, but "Rain After Drought" is near to be completed. It'll be a more mature work, still in the vein of their debut, and full of killer tunes with strong riffing gathering influences from bands like early Metallica, Iron Maiden, early Megadeth, Slough Feg…
As soon as everything's done, we'll be able to offer you a 1st advance song from "Rain After Drought" as well as cover artwork, track listing and a release date for it.

Perth groove metal act Bayview Suspect are ready to shake things up and get some heads banging again with the release of their new EP "Survival Or Ruin" due out September 14th through Rockpit Records. Produced by drummer Luke Specter and guitarist Brody Lawrence, the EP was recorded in Perth at Bayview Studios and Superfreak Studios with engineering and mixing duties handled by Daniel Thabet and Johnny Sohl. All tracks were mixed and mastered at Liquid Studios in Merrick, New York.
"Survival Or Ruin" is a brilliant and natural follow up to their debut EP "To Whom It May Concern" which was released in 2016. Where the band started with a heavy groove that takes influences from bands such as Lamb Of God and Whitechapel, this new release sees the band incorporate more melody and a hint of a more European metal sound that shows progression and a willingness to keep things fresh.
"From hook to breakdown, we’re proud of how Survival or Ruin showcases our evolution and song writing progression", says the band. "This EP is a testament to our need to experiment sonically and allows us to write tunes that’ll stay with you."
The band also recently announced a new member into the fold, Kristian Climo who takes over on guitar duties. The band comments: "Already being friends with Kristian and knowing how well he plays, we knew he would be a solid fit into Bayview."
