Spanish black metal mystics Empty premiere the new track "The Night Remains For Who Is" at heavily trafficked web-portal IndyMetalVault.com. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated fifth album, Vacio, set for international release on September 28th via Osmose Productions. Hear Empty's "The Night Remains For Who Is" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Four years passed by when Spain's Empty offered their previous superb album Etica Profana Negativa. In this occasion, we have their fifth full-length work. Here, we can find an Empty in a phenomenal creative moment of evolution, since Empty has brought their proposal a step beyond. It´s hard to mention any other band from the world scene with this vision and attitude when making music. Black metal? Sure, with this label the album could be defined, but it would not be the most suitable way…
Vacío is an overwhelming and desolating mixture of emotions and sensations. It´s inspired by the book La Lluvia Amarilla ("The Yellow Rain") by Julio Llamazares. This album shows a long, bitter, and fateful journey to oblivion and nothingness. Its own title reflects the nature of the message: the memory of Death, which from an ominous shadow, it became a tangible and palpable presence; the blind acceptance of the fate that removes our trace and dilutes our existence in time.
Vacío transforms all this pile of sentiments into 46 minutes of music through seven tracks. A soprano contributed to some passages in the album. Also MR.J.M. from Ataraxy collaborated with keyboards. The band dares to play a cover version of Arcana, and so they are once more pioneers in exploring the darkest corridors of the human psyche.
The atmosphere surrounding this album takes to a terribly dark mental state - pessimist but at the same time brutally realistic. The band is away from the topics and stereotypes of black metal, and offer an amazing sample of honesty and realism. This is one of those cases that words can´t describe what one feels in some circumstances; however, the music draws a scenario that performs the message and the feel perfectly. The amazing and singular artwork helps one to understand the context of this album, where pictures and texts complement this new work of Empty.
Without any doubt, we are before "The Swangsong of the Black Swan” of the band, recommended for people with judgment and people who look for something more than fun and banality in music.
In the meantime, hear the new track "The Night Remains For Who Is" in its entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of IndyMetalVault.com. Also see & hear the previously revealed video for "The Yellow Rain" HERE at Osmose's official YouTube channel.
Chile's Pulverized stream "Devoción" Via No Clean Singing; debut album "Monuments of Misanthropy" out this October
Chilean death metal horde Pulverized is coming up with their debut full length via Krucyator Productions in both digital and jewel-case CD editions. The album, aptly titled as "Monuments of Misanthropy", is slated for worldwide release on October 13, 2018.
"Devoción", the opening track of the album is currently streaming over at No Clean Singing.
HEAR IT RIGHT HERE
Chilean cadavers Pulverized awoke in the city of Santiago in 2006. They perform death metal with a strong American influence from the early '90s, without leaving aside the essences of the glorious South American extreme metal scene. Their lyrical themes touch the thoughts about life, death, Christianity and its moral decadence in Western Society. Having two demo releases in their discography, they have already illustrated the sign of miasmic assault, that is uncontrollably fierce and absolutely petrifying.
“Monuments of Misanthropy”, the impending debut album, will lay the cornerstone of a new epoch in the band’s history. Featuring lyrics in both Spanish and English, Pulverized deploy unholy feelings in veins throughout the six abominably composed furious songs. In terms of sonic landscape, this album stands in a supreme point where viciousness, profanity and primitiveness are in poise.
This striking debut album will see the worldwide release on October 13, 2018 via Krucyator Prods. on Jewel Case CD and digitally. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered at DM6 Studio by Pablo Clares. Santiago, Chile.

The powerful melodic metal band Kilmara presents their new masterpiece “Across the Realm of Time“. After three critically acclaimed albums, the debut “Haunting Dreams” the work that put them on the world map, “Dont fear the Wolf” and their fantastic third album “Love songs and other nightmares“, it was time for Kilmara to make their fourth album, the most important of their career. With the incorporations of the American singer Daniel Ponce and the virtuoso Argentinian guitarist Miguel Laise, Kilmara returns to revolutionize their sound being now more melodic, faster and powerful, but without losing the class and mastery that characterizes them. “Across the realm of time” is the definitive work and consecration of Kilmara, a new step to conquer all lovers of quality metal.

When writing about 'A New Kind Of Horror' in the record's liner notes, Anaal Nathrakh vocalist Dave Hunt is succinct in his description:-
"This is not a happy album, it is bitter, vengeful, sarcastic, sardonic, violent, terrified and horrified, terrifying and horrifying in equal measure. Above all, it is human, and all that that entails. It's as sincere as we could make it." Those exposed to the ten tracks comprising the band's tenth full-length will be unable to deny the truth to these words, for lyrically, musically and sonically it is a punishing listen mired in darkness and seething with raw emotion.
With multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney pushing their distinctive hybrid of symphonic black metal, death metal, industrial and grindcore ever forward, Hunt draws lyrical inspiration primarily from the horrors of the First World War, contemporary politics, and the letters of D.H. Lawrence, creating one of the most powerful, timely and unique releases of 2018. "There's a lot that goes into our albums, of course, but it all comes about as a natural result of who we are, and for 'A New Kind of Horror' we felt early on that it was clearly its own thing. It doesn't have to stand in comparison with anything, because to us it's in a class of its own."

Are you ready for some insanely heavy grooves as slamming as After the Burial or Tesseract's heavy-hitters? Have you prepared your vocal cords to sing along to the catchy, clean melodies and beastly growls on the level of Erra? The much awaited debut full-length studio album by Sails of Serenity has finally arrived! Comparisons aside, this is one album you're not going to want to pass up this year as the band presents their unique spin on progressive metalcore.
The Crossing is now available worldwide via Famined Records. With previous singles like "Left Behind" and "Shipwrecked" premiering through Metal Injection and New Noise Magazine, we're excited to be exclusively premiering the stream for the entire album now through The Noise, or grab your copy here.
Vocalist Selim Devirek expresses his enthusiasm towards this release:-
"It's incredibly exciting for us to be releasing our first LP because we poured our hearts in it and we've been waiting for people to hear this for over a year. It's strange and somewhat scary to open our hearts to the people we've never met but at the same time we can't wait for people to hear it and feel the way we do. The Crossing is a passage through a new sound of Sails of Serenity and a passage through a new life for each member. We really feel that we've grown and turned into different people from when we were formed and we keep growing so our music keeps evolving with us. That is why this album feels so special for us and hopefully it will feel as special to the listeners."
Sails of Serenity is a group from Istanbul, Turkey consisting of vocalist Selim Devirek, guitarist Sercan Alkin, guitarist Harun Sekmen, and drummer Alter Güven. Their musical style merges djenty grooves with catchy vocal melodies all packaged together in an aggressive metalcore package. Apart from the aforementioned bands, fans of Born of Osiris, Architects, and Northlane will definitely enjoy what Sails of Serenity has to offer. The band has previously released the Gold to Rust EP and "The Bitter End" single in 2016.
The Crossing was mixed and mastered by Gabor Toth (Harmed) at Ghostship Recordings (Beyond Deviation, Swallowed Alive, Bloodbather). In addition to the guest appearance by Furtherial's Başer Çelebi on previous released single "Left Behind," the opening piece on the album will include orchestration by Eren Başbuğ (Dream Theater).

Watch it now at the following link: https://newnoisemagazine.com/sense-fear-black-hole-video/
Years in the making, Sense Of Fear's debut full length “As The Ages Passing By…” follows the band's 2013 self-titled EP. Offering an old school heavy metal feel with a modern pounding anvil, each track crafted on the new album was carefully selected for a good old headbanging time along with telling a unique story. The album was recorded at Valve Studio in Thessaloniki, Greece by Stratos "Strutter" Karagiannidis (Gus G, Wardrum) with mixing and mastering done at Music Factory and Prophecy Studios in Kempten-ALLGÄU, Germany by R.D. Liapakis (Mystic Prophecy, Devil's Train) & C. Schmid. Album artwork designed and edited by Colin Marks (Nevermore, Exodus, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Kataklysm, Jeff Loomis, Xerath, Sylosis).
The band comments:
"Each song has its own gravity to the album, and all together create Sense Of Fear’s presentation to the world as a band and as musicians. All the lyrics come from personal experiences and emotions. This is our way to express ourselves and fight the personal demons."
"As The Ages Passing By…” is now available digitally and on CD via Rockshots Records online store here plus iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all major online retailers.
