Japanese black metal mystics Anguis Dei stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut EP, Ad Portas Serpentium, at heavily trafficked web-portal InvisibleOranges.com. Set for international release on November 24th via Svart Records, hear Anguis Dei's Ad Portas Serpentium in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Anguis Dei represents True Satanik Black Metal. It represents the extremity of hellish orchestral black metal: harsh, majestic, and spectral soundscape based on Satanism, demonology, and the true primordial black metal tradition.
The formation of this sect occurred back in MMXIV anno bastardi. Since then, its devotees have been the following four entities: Adeptus Juno - hæretical strings & darkestrations (Juno Bloodlust); Adeptus Summum Algor - blasting rituals (Adversam, Juno Bloodlust, Natassievila, etc); Adeptus Hakuja - serpentine strings (Hakuja, Cataplexy, etc); and Adeptus U.:È.:Œ.: - séance & magitation (Arkha Sva, Avsolutized…, Ahpdegma, etc). Now, in early Novembre MMXIV, Anguis Dei’s first EP Ad Portas Serpentium shall proudly be unleashed by Svart Records. It shall feature the following three sonic ceremonies on the circular laminas. I. "Maythorns Over Uroboros," II. "Angela Krudeliis Ambitiosa Nokturniis," III. "Origin ~ The Lionel." And, in addition, Ad Portas Serpentium shall shortly be followed by the first full-length entitled Angeist.
Anguis Dei is an audible form of black magick for Satan and Satanists rather than other flooding commercialised music products. It shall provide something invisible affecting your invisible world. Prepare for entering the gates and taking a dark journey into the malign realms of Satanik Magick.
The entire realm can be entered exclusively HERE, courtesy of InvisibleOranges.com.
Portugal's Annihilation have teamed up with New Noise Magazine to stream "Nagas", a new track from their forthcoming album The Undivided Wholeness Of All Things.
The band commented:- "The song Nagas speaks about a reptilian entity from the lower 4th dimension. This parasitic entity feeds on the Human negative energy and thoughts, and has been manipulating the world for centuries, they are responsible for the wars, famine and all the negative stuff that happens around the world."
Listen to "Nagas" here: http://newnoisemagazine.com/stream-annihilation-nagas/
The Undivided Wholeness Of All Things will be released on November 28th 2017.
Acclaim Records presents: 88 – “Black Metal Kampf” CD
The NSBM War machine is back with third full-length album! Eight tracks with raw sound and uncompromising aggression! Lyrics against the mind enslavement and the plagues in our world. Released on CD and Digital albums exclusively by Acclaim Records. Official T-shirt will be released soon as well!
Soulwound, the thrash metal band featuring three brothers from Kouvola, Finland, have released a music video for the song "Alone against All" off the band's second full-length album "No Peace".
Watch music video here: https://youtu.be/T8ujYe3DvPQ
The band comments: "Our previous videos have always featured some symbolic content in addition to footage of the band performing, but this time we decided to go for a really stripped down DIY performance video to accompany the song Alone against All, which is arguably the most "punk" song on the album in its simplistic ferocity. The original idea was to both shoot and edit the video entirely by ourselves, but we soon realized that none of us had the hardware or software to pull it off, so we turned once again to our good friend Tino-Viljami Vanhala for the editing job. We knew we could count on his wizardry, and sure enough, he waved his magic wand over the decidedly crude footage we'd shot and turned it into something far better than we ever could have. So, crack open a beer and join us for a sweaty and oxygen-deprived headbanging party in the cramped basement room where we forge our brand of Finnish metal!"
"No Peace" was released in October 2016 by Inverse Records and is available globally. The band is currently preparing for its last live shows for this year in December and planning to start putting together material for a new album in early 2018.

Polish folk-influenced black/prog metal act Jarun unveil a new track from their third album, “Sporysz".
The track "Malowany Ogień" (translates to "Painted Fire") is streaming exclusively via No Clean Singing and Musick Magazine.
Stream the new track -

Musick Magazine: http://www.musickmagazine.pl/archiwa/6519#more-6519
The band comments that "Sporysz" is a story about death and madness, humans and nature, and the transformation of seasons. It's a kaleidoscope of thoughts and words, and memories based on deep and serious life experiences.
Musically, it's a journey from black metal through traditional acoustic sounds, and reaching out to alternative and prog rock. On the one hand the material is experimental and unconventional, while on the other, it is full of melancholy with Jarun’s “folk” atmosphere which they have been creating for the past decade.
“Sporysz” is the next step in the band's evolution with a new direction and sound, while at the same time keeping the atmosphere of their previous work.

Russia's leading and finest pagan metal band Arkona, who are set to release their brand new album Khram on January 19th 2018 with Napalm Records, have just unveiled a first teaser and exclusive album preview! Get your ears on this first sneak peak, featuring all tracks from Arkona's upcoming album right HERE!
A Khram, the Russian word for temple, is shrouded in natural mysticism slumbering behind nocturnal treetops, yet open to everyone. The sincerity and depth that binds all five band members together resonates in the sumptuously dark cover artwork and front-lady Masha`s lyrics, that are written in her own blood (which is also part of the artwork)! Arkona may have used sound samples in their early days, but nowadays cellos, brass parts, wind instruments and throat singing are recorded live meticulously and flow naturally into the band's harsh metal tunes: King-sized songs effortlessly shift from blackened pagan metal masterpieces to epic tracks with crystal-clear melodies and piano infusions. So better mark your calendars for January 19th 2018, as Arkona’s Khram is an exuberant and demanding affair that defies genre boundaries with untameable spirit!
Coming as CD Digi Pack, Digital Download and LP Gatefold editions, Khram is now available to pre-order HERE!
In support of their upcoming album, Arkona will be heavily touring in early 2018, including an extensive European tour with Korpiklaani, Heidevolk, Trollfest & many more!

Latin American death metal act Corpse Garden are now streaming their third album, “IAO 269”, exclusively through Invisible Oranges (World Premiere) and Musick Magazine (Poland). Scheduled for a release this Friday 24 November 2017 in CD, cassette and digital formats, “IAO 269” is now available for orders through Godz ov War Productions.

Invisible Oranges: http://www.invisibleoranges.com/corpse-garden-iao-269/
Musick Magazine: http://www.musickmagazine.pl/archiwa/6506
Continuing from where they left off with their last album, the Costa Rican band Corpse Garden naturally evolve and expand their musical horizons, presenting a bolder, much more avant-garde and experimental, even dissonant-at-times, approach to death metal.
Guitarist Federico Gutiérrez comments on what influenced this direction: “music is always a response from whatever we are feeling at the moment of its creation. It is an extension of our feelings and emotions”. The album was heavily influenced by the music the band members were listening to during the creation process of the album: kraut-rock, 70s and 80s post-punk and ambient music among others.
IAO 269 was produced by Colin Marston and Corpse Garden. Recorded, mixed and mastered in January 2017 by Colin Marston at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves Studio, Queens, New York.

Italian Death Metal / Deathcore stalwarts The Modern Age Slavery have released the official video for "Miles Apart," a track from forthcoming album Stygian. Check it out at: https://youtu.be/Ql1UOkxPsT0
Innerstrength Records will release Stygian on November 24. Pre-orders are available at:
Coming almost four years since the release of critically acclaimed 2013 release Requiem for Us All (Pavement), the level-jumping blast of intensity on the band's Innerstrength debut is the result of miles logged and the already dynamic songwriting honed to a fine point.
The band has released the following statement about the new album:
"With this new album we tried to make another step forward in the evolution of our sound: what you'll hear it's a quite obscure atmosphere delivering a sullen and evil experience, yet keeping the heaviness of the death metal matrix that marked our music in the previous albums. The lyrics are all inspired by a common theme, from which the name "Stygian" and the correlated artwork come from, discussing the questionable matter of the human evolution leading men to a slow but inevitable mutation into a being that lost his mind and compassion devoured by greediness and will to power. All the pieces of the puzzle are perfectly pondered to create an album made of passion, of anger, and real emotions. This is the The Modern Age's album!"
