The band stated:-
"We always thought that the title track of our latest album deserved a music video. It is with great excitement that we now finally get to release it. We wanted a very pure and innocent look for the video, but like the song, the ending comes with a bittersweet surprise."

"'To Die Once Again' offers a darker overtone with the lyrics primarily covering topics like death, sadness, depression and Gothic aesthetics. Musically sound, 'To Die Once Again' is mainly a Hard Rock album but borrows elements from Alternative Metal and Gothic Metal; with subtle pinches of Doom Metal. This is more than just music, this album paints a picture of how the darker side of life and love becomes neglected, the harsh reality, the wicked truth and it goes without saying, 'To Die Once Again' is to suggest a rebirth gone wrong."

Scotland's King Witch streams "Beneath The Waves" video via Decibel; Under The Mountain out via Listenable Records next year.
This February, Listenable Records will unleash Under The Mountain, the debut full-length from Scotland-based metal / doom rockers King Witch. In advance of its release, Decibel Magazine is hosting a premiere of the band's official video for "Beneath The Waves." Calling the record, "heavy and epic," the outlet furthers, "Driven by thunderous riffs and rhythm section and propelled into the next dimension by powerhouse vocalist Laura Donnelly, the quartet just sounds huge..."
Elaborates Donnelly, "'Beneath The Waves' was inspired by stories such as Moby Dick and explores man's need to destroy anything and everything beautiful, dangerous, and unfamiliar... and the retribution dealt in return. This track felt like a natural choice for the video - soaring vocals, massive drums and some huge riffs!"

Under The Mountain is scheduled for a February 9th, 2018 release via Listenable Records. For pre-orders visit THIS LOCATION.
Under The Mountain was recorded and produced by guitarist Jamie Gilchrist at their underground studio in their home city of Edinburgh, mixed and mastered by Tom Dring at Vagrant Recordings (Dragged Into Sunlight, Acolyte) in Southport and comes swathed in artwork created by Donnelly. The record serves as King Witch's follow-up to their debut EP, Shoulders Of Giants, and boasts nine riff-laden tracks offset by Donnelly's powerful yet bewitching vocals. Influenced by everything from Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin to Mastodon and High On Fire, Under The Mountain is as melodic as it is monolithic, taking its listener on a journey from soulful doom to full-tilt metal mayhem.
Formed in early 2015 in a dark cavern beneath the streets of old Edinburgh, King Witch manifests a potent and heavy brew of old school metal and the meatiest of '70s classic rock. In a time where many seek to stick rigidly within the confines of their chosen genre, King Witch simply writes the songs they want to play.
Kingdom of Nothingness from Turkish Black Metal duo Zifir is out now on Duplicate Records. The album is available on Spotify, Youtube, iTunes, Bandcamp and all other digital platforms. Stream the album in its entirety at https://youtu.be/10k4h0twmrw
Zifir have existed for more than a decade in the deep confines of the underground, previously releasing two full-lengths and one split album with Cult Of Erinyes. Now, with their third album Kingdom Of Nothingness, the Turkish two-piece of Onur Onok and Nursuz have crafted a unique piece of darkness. Skillfully blending eastern European and Scandinavian influences into their very own sound, Zifir evoke haunting imagery of desolate fields and vast ruins, all soiled in blood. Rather than the standard "Hail Satan" perspective, lyrically Kingdom Of Nothingness is a condemnation of all man made religion, seen from a Turkish point of view.
Kingdom of Nothingness can also be purchased at the following locations:

Italian technical thrashers Centripetal Force stream the entirety of their forthcoming debut EP, Eidetic, at heavily trafficked web-portal ToiletOvHell.com. Set for international release on December 20th via Xtreem Music, hear Centripetal Force's Eidetic in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Formed back in 2010 by Stefano Saroglia (guitars) and Andrea Carratta (drums), Centripetal Force completed the line-up with John Knight, who is lead singer of UK progressive metal band Synaptik. The musical style of the band is twisted, technical, and progressive thrash metal in the vein of bands like Watchtower, old Cynic, Mekong Delta, Control Denied, Coroner, later Death, and Toxik.
In 2017, Centripetal Force recorded three songs destined to be their debut EP, entitled Eidetic, and with this, they got a deal with Xtreem Music for its release in December of the same year. The band is now working on more songs for a second EP to be released sometime in fall 2018, but that's another story...

Polish folk-influenced Black / Prog metal act Jarun are now streaming their third album, “Sporysz", in its entirety exclusively via Heavy Blog Is Heavy.
Stream the album -
Heavy Blog Is Heavy: http://www.heavyblogisheavy.com/2017/12/14/exclusive-premiere-jarun-sporysz/
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.
Arachnophobia Records online:
2017 has been a momentous year for De Profundis, as they have celebrated their tenth anniversary as a recording band with exciting tours across the UK and Europe with the likes of Taake, Necrophagia and David Vincent's I Am Morbid. They also released the Decayed: 2007 – 2017 career retrospective collection, 10,000 copies of which were distributed with news-stand copies of the UK’s extreme music magazine, Zero Tolerance. The celebrations of the past concluded with a stunning show at the Unicorn in London, the venue where the band played their first gig all those years ago. Now the time has come to look to the future once more...
We are delighted to announce that De Profundis have signed a worldwide deal with Transcending Obscurity Records. Based in India, Transcending Obscurity is one of the fastest growing and most well respected labels in the world of underground music and De Profundis will be joining a roster than can already boast the likes of Paganizer, Officium Triste, Echelon and other renowned extreme metal names from around the globe.
Speaking about their new label, the band have issued the following statement:-
“We are excited to sign with Transcending Obscurity as over the last few years we have seen their profile rise and rise with the signing of top quality extreme metal bands - including the legendary Paganizer. We were looking for a label to push De Profundis into our next decade of existence and in Kunal we have found someone who shares our enthusiasm, professionalism and work ethic. Now that we have joined forces with Transcending Obscurity we cannot wait to unveil details of our fifth album which will be our heaviest to date. We promise you 2018 will the year of De Profundis!”
Meanwhile label boss Kunal Choksi commented:-
“I've seen the band grow closely and as fate would have it, got the chance to work with them. They're evidently a very serious and professional band, and after listening to their new album which is more death metal and powerful than before, I feel this will be a great partnership. I can't wait to work towards giving it a worldwide release in early 2018."
As both statements make clear the new album from De Profundis is set to be released in early 2018 and it is undoubtedly the heaviest, most intense album of the band’s career so far. To mark this new beginning De Profundis have unveiled a new band logo, designed for them by Gary Ronaldson of Bite Radius Design (Kreator, Misery Index, Pig Destroyer etc), which reflects the savage new twist to their trademark style.
Details of pre-orders and the various formats will follow shortly, as well as the reveal of the awesome album artwork – watch this space!
