Dutch death metal squad Dictated are unleashing another brutal track entitled 'Eisoptro' taken from their upcoming album 'Phobos', which will be released on October 25th 2019. 'Phobos' is the follow-up to 2014's 'The Deceived'. With ‘Phobos’, Dictated is leaving behind their known-path of ‘old-school’, and add the purest of misery without the loss of their blast-beat ethics.
Dictated - Eisoptro (Official Stream) - https://smarturl.it/DictatedEisoptro
Dictated comments on 'Eisoptro':-
"We are proud to present you one last fear, before we unleash 'Phobos' upon the world.
'Eisoptro' is also known as the fear of mirrors. The fear is often grounded in superstitions, like breaking a mirror will bring you bad luck, or that looking into a mirror will put you in contact with a supernatural world inside the glass. We directed this fear more into the grounding of the psyche and the aversion of the reflection looking back.
Mirror mirror on the wall, a silent rumination. Mirror mirror on the wall, a careful contemplation"
The new opus was recorded, mixed and mastered at Double Impact Productions by Pieter Tjeerdsma & WD Glashouwer. Cover artwork came courtesy of Greg ‘AbsuManiac’ Czart.
York Keijzer - vocals

Turkish Black Metal cult Horrocious stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut album, Depleted Light and the Death of Uniqueness, via MetalBite.com. Set for international release on October 25th via Osmose Productions, hear Horrocious' Depleted Light and the Death of Uniqueness in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Inexorable hatred occurred with the coming together of Godslaying Hellblast, Sarinvomit, and Persecutory members in early 2015. Horrocious started as a two-man black metal band to spread the infernal sounds that symbolize the destruction of the universe under the infinite chaos and eternal dominance of diabolic nothingness, and in this way, they recorded a four-track debut EP, Obscure Dominance Of Nothingness, which was released as limited-edition cassette in 2015 and CD edition in 2016. Later, three new members (C.G. on guitars, E.K. on bass, Alexey on drums) were added to the line-up to record an eight-track debut full-length in the first quarter of 2018.
On this debut full-length, Depleted Light and the Death of Uniqueness, Horrocious points the egoism and ambition of the divinity and his spatial prison in the the archia light of his orders when he wanted to be respected, and prepares the ground for an endless struggle. True power of the Lucipherian energy above the spiritual light and embraces infinite sinfulness by rebelling against the incomprehensible secret uniqueness trapped in sanctity. Would it be forgotten that the war of freedom given by the falling angels and the wrath of sealed old evil spirits? From the creation to the scarcity of information, the salvation of humiliated existence will be realized by the destruction of all the things mentioned as goodness, so the control of the worlds was only an embarrassing force, and the irresistible principles and authorities destroyed endless dissatisfaction and the system was designed in stages and the system of interdependence was inevitable. Because this was rebellious son Lucifer’s eternal war against the integrity of all worlds...
In the meantime, stream Depleted Light and the Death of Uniqueness in its entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of MetalBite.com. Preorder info can be found HERE.

Canadian Power Metallers Unleash The Archers release “Heartless World” lyric video; new EP 'Explorers' out now
In “Heartless World”, Unleash The Archers show the world what they are made of. The band manages to give the original glam metal track by Teaze an unexpected, modern power metal twist. Combining that with an astonishingly wide range of vocal melodies, Unleash The Archers surprise and bewitch the listener yet again. A clean guitar intro makes you feel almost melancholic, but when the second chorus hits, at the very least, you’ll be tapping your foot. “Heartless World” describes how everything can become too much from time to time, and that sometimes all you need is to unplug and recharge your energy. Watch the lyric video accompanying the single below and lose yourself in an FM headphone high!
Watch The Lyric Video For “Heartless World” HERE:
Unleash The Archers on “Heartless World”, fresh off the new EP Explorers:
“The second single is a cover of a song by a Canadian hair metal band from the 80's called Teaze. They are not super well known, but that's why we gravitated towards them. The song “Heartless World” has a really interesting arrangement and can't seem to decide if it's a ballad or a rock opera. Unlike “Northwest Passage”, where we played around with it quite a bit, we left “Heartless World” almost completely as is, and only changed a few small things like solos and vocal melodies. We thought it would be a great companion piece to “Northwest Passage” and really round out the moody Explorers vibe.”

Unleash The Archers newest EP Explorers is out now! It’s available via the Napalm Records Store in the following formats and includes both singles “Northwest Passage” and “Heartless World”:
Multi-platinum, Grammy nominated, quintet Bring Me The Horizon have released the official video for single “In The Dark” today – watch HERE. Written, directed and edited by the band’s frontman Oliver Sykes, the visual stars Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winning actor Forest Whitaker and sees him undergo Matrix-like brain mapping.
Co-directed and produced by videographer Brian Cox, Oli comments:-
"’In The Dark’ is my first ‘official’ directing effort. We were in the midst of planning to shoot the video with a director in LA, 3 days before the shoot I got a call from Forest saying he was in London and available, so ignoring everyone who said it was impossible to make it happen in time, I called our videographer Brian and asked him if he wanted to help me direct a video. 2 days later we were shooting in London! It was a crazy, emotional few days and I was very lucky to bag an insanely talented crew to assist me.”
The band is currently touring in support of their number one album, 'Amo' (RCA), which exploded on both sides of the pond. Its lead track, “Mantra,” earned the band its first-ever Grammy nomination for “Best Rock Song.” Fans can catch Bring Me The Horizon on their headlining “Threesome Tour” before it wraps on October 29 in Miami, FL.
