Death metal classicists Rotheads premiere the new track "Sewer Fiends" at Decibel magazine's website. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated debut album of the same name, Sewer Fiends, set for international release on January 22nd, 2018 via Memento Mori. Hear Rotheads' "Sewer Fiends" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Hailing from Romania, the putrid ensemble of Rotheads was formed in Bucharest back in 2014 as an old-school death metal side-project to the experimental doom / noise / stoner-improv band Keeng Ra'at; both bands contained the same three members. By 2015, five songs were written, and recordings began in December of that year. Ultimately, six songs (plus intro and outro) came out in April 2016 as the Unfazed by Death demo, which turned out to be a remarkable, sick trip into the bowels of murky and foul-smelling death metal. In the meantime, another guitarist joined the band, and the original bassist left and rejoined later on. The original drummer and vocalist also left the band in August, and another drummer has since joined, while the vocals are now handled by the original guitarist. Rotheads have played only a few times live, the most memorable being two gigs around Romania with the legendary Sadistic Intent.
"Aptly fucking titled" is an understatement when it comes to Sewer Fiends. Here, Rotheads take their aggregate influences - particularly from the classic early '90s Finnish scene (Abhorrence, early Sentenced, Demigod, Depravity), as well as other timeless crypt dwellers such as Autopsy, Incantation, Carnage, Accidental Suicide, Grave, and Asphyx - and proceed to create a mesmerizing murky 'n' moody work with their debut album. The sewage is piled high and plentifully, as foul 'n' fetid riffs flow fast and freely, but always with a clearly discernible direction; after all, Rotheads are firmly grounded in the timeless songwriting style of old-school death metal, where feeling and texture are paramount over technique and other flashy nonsense. And those riffs continue to roll ever forward, malevolently and majestically, just like a (filth-strewn) tank. And yet, amidst all this crunch and carnage lay a layering of eerie melody atop, evoking fresh crypts opening slowly or the tension of wandering further into tomb-like sewers. Indeed, Rotheads are as aptly named as their album is titled, and we dare you to emerge from their moldy embrace completely clean - there's just no way to wash off this horror!
As an appetizer, just stare deeply into Cesar Valladares' cryptic cover art. And, with mixing and mastering courtesy of Javier Felez at Moontower Studios, it's all but guaranteed that Rotheads' Sewer Fiends will be one of the best (if not THE BEST) death metal debuts of the year! Hear for yourself exclusively HERE, courtesy of Decibel, North America's only monthly metal magazine. Also hear the previously revealed track "Rats in the Walls" HERE at Memento Mori's official YouTube channel.

Rockshots Records is more than excited to announce the signing of the electro-core rising stars We Have The Moon!
WHTM got attention from the fans thanks to the first single released "Killer Party" as well as the cover song version of "Blue" (Eiffel 65).
The current We Have The Moon project was mainly inspired by the fresh sound and attitude of bands such as Asking Alexandria, Attack Attack! and Eskimo Callboy, matching other influences (like 00's dance) to create a unique sound they love to call "Partycore".
Their debut album "Till the Morning Comes" is a collection of 11 hit songs made to entertain your party, and is set to be released worldwide on February 23, 2018 via Rockshots Records!

Concept is available for pre-order starting today and will feature eleven tracks that listeners will be able to hear on January 19th.

It's gonna be a big year for Out Of My Eyes so keep an eye on us to make sure you don't miss anything!” - Harry Maisonneuve (Guitarist)
After three years of building a fanbase and honing their style, Out Of My Eyes are defining their identity with fresh new tracks bringing together electro elements with powerful breakdowns and catchy choruses.

Armed with an explosive energy and a strong stage presence, the squad is making it clear that he’s an accomplished live band. Having made a name for themselves in their home country opening for bands like Attila, The Color Morale, Bad Omens and more, and experienced the road supporting Shoot The Girl First in the summer of 2016, Out Of My Eyes are now ready to release new music and take it as far and wide as possible.

Argentinian symphonic power metal band Preludio Ancestral have signed a deal with Fighter Records for the worldwide (except Asia) release of their fourth album, to be entitled Oblivion, during the spring of 2018.
Formed back in 2005 by guitarist Leo Gatti, the band released a demo in that same year, but it wasn't until 2012 when a first EP and their debut album, Hacia lo Inmortal (Towards the Immortal), was released, being followed by another EP a year later and their second and third albums - Kybalion in 2015 and El Misterio de la Pasión Divina (The Mystery of Divine Passion) in 2016, respectively. Preludio Ancestral have been gaining quite a recognition not only in their native country, where they even opened for acts like Rhapsody of Fire and Stratovarius, but also around the world.
Preludio Ancestral's Oblivion will be a magnificent opus of an epic-painted power metal with symphonic arrangements and awesome guitar work, where various European vocalists and Argentinian musicians give form to an album that will be the delight of any lover of this genre.
Oblivion is still in the final production stages and will see the light during spring 2018 through Fighter Records. First single, full track-list, exact release date, and cover art will be revealed shortly. In the meantime, consult the band's official Facebook site below.
