Swedish thrash metal band Carnal Forge releases the second lyric video from their up-coming album “Gun to mouth salvation”, that is set for release on January 25, 2019 via ViciSolum Productions.
Check out the video “Reforged”:- https://youtu.be/V0ZBgddRqI8
The most hard-hitting Swedish thrash metal band ever Carnal Forge is back and has signed a record deal with Swedish label ViciSolum Productions. The band’s new album “Gun To Mouth Salvation” will overtake the world on January 25, 2019. “Gun To Mouth Salvation” is Carnal Forge´s first album since 2007 monster release “Testify For My Victims”.
Founder Jari Kuusisto says:-
“I quit Carnal Forge after the last full-length album Testify for my victims because I was just feed up with the music industry and everything about being in the band. It took some years but I felt I was kind of missing CF, so I talked to my brother Petri and I called up Lars in 2013 and said. Hey, let's f*****g do it! He had been waiting since the hibernation in 2010 so it was a Go! right on the spot. We made this mini CD to wake up the corpse and we did some shows but then we decided to not do any more shows until we had a new album and new fresh songs to play. It's a long boring story why it took so long time, but finally here we are now, ready to kick some serious ass again! And with us we also have Lawrence Dinamarca (Nightrage, Loch Vostok) and new vocalist Tommie Wahlberg.”

"The Blackening Tide" is the new album from Danish epic melodic death metallers Heidra and the follow up to the band's first full length album "Awaiting Dawn͛" from 2014.
"The Blackening Tide" is a concept album continuing the epic narrative and story arc that started with "Awaiting Dawn", and building upon Heidra's musical trademarks of twin lead guitar harmonies, soaring orchestral passages, growled vocals mixed with powerful clean singing and a relentless barrage of crushing metal riffs
The story of a king deposed and his attempts to reclaim his throne continue and the album opens with the dawn of the day of reckoning and the march to the battlefield, where the two armies clash in a murderous fury. With victory seemingly at hand for our hero, events suddenly take a turn for the worse as he and all his army is cast into a hellish realm.
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Marco Mastrobuono (Hour Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse) at Kick Recording Studio in Rome and is out now via Time To Kill Records.
The official music video for the single "Lady of the Shade" can be watched HERE.

Indian Progressive Death Metal outfit Dark Helm have finally unveiled the latest album- 'Hymnus De Antitheist' via Bandcamp for digital purchase now. The album is available for full streaming on their Bandcamp page.
The band's guitarist Mohanish adds:-
"I hate the fact that humans, an example of peak intelligence and (debatably) peak evolution have been such a let down. Our ability to question (humans being the only species capable of doing that as far as I know) could have led us to something so beautiful. Instead we chose this cesspool. These are the thoughts reflected in the music and lyrics of the album."
Packed with a staggering eleven tracks; this album surely puts a solid mark in the scene here with their unique blend of Death Metal with Progressive elements complimented by the use of Ancient/ Traditional instruments in their making. With this album, the band has surely put forth a terrific release with a matured sound and writing progression that bands can only earn out of experience. Having been active in the Indian Metal scene for a decade; the band surely knows what they are upto!
The album can be streamed and purchased via the Bandcamp link below:-
The album's physical copies / merch will be out by January 2019.

Italian Visual gothic act A Tear Beyond have launched their new official promo video, gathering together the band's highlights from the recent show with Nightwish at RomExpo in Bucharest, and more! Watch it here: https://youtu.be/Lb-tNFNkXoU
Stated the band:
"Here's a short Promo Video made by Hypnoise Recording Studio & A Tear Beyond! Live scenes by Massimiliano Lorenzin, Alex Tuturescu and band fans. Enjoy and share! \m/"

In 2015 the band released the second studio album “Maze of Antipodes”.The album was supported by sequence of live gigs opening for international bands like Nightwish, Moonspell, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Folkstone, Isole, Septicflesh, Dark Lunacy, Jack Frost and Extrema.

Sludge metal band Hollow Leg have released their new song "Hunter and the Hunted" over at Doomed and Stoned. The song is taken from their upcoming album Civilizations which will be released in January via Argonauta Records.
Listen to the song here: https://doomedandstoned.com/post/181221529778/hollowleg
Pre-order the album here: http://www.argonautarecords.com/shop/en/home/306-hollow-leg-civilizations-lp-cd.html
Hollow Leg is the sort of demented sludge behemoth that makes the faint of heart tremble and shake. Having emerged from the Florida swamps, this isn’t just another heavy band trying to suck at the teat of a bloated scene. Rather these Psycho Las Vegas veterans have made a name for themselves as weathered professionals, both on the road and in the studio. Blending American blues with English heavy metal, Hollow Leg have refined a sound that is coloured with the influences of everyone from Janes Addiction and Faith No More to Eyehategod by way of Judas Priest.
Once called, “fluid in its groove and molasses-thick in tone” by the Obelisk, Hollow Leg have been methodical in their tour approach and consistent with their recorded output. This fall will see the release of Civilizations on Argonauta Records, the bands fourth album in eight years and third studio release since 2016. The group recorded it all in their own studio and self produced, eventually being mixed and mastered by Kent Stump of Wo Fat. With huge ambitions and deep roots, Hollow Leg have found themselves playing multiple Maryland Doom Fests.
Cranking out crushing riffs left and right in the nations seedy dive bars as well as alongside titans like Amon Amarth and Enslaved, this band is a veritable train kept a’ rollin’. Unafraid to evolve, having even shifted from being a duo to a four piece, this is a group who constantly push for bigger and better things. Greater than the sum of their parts and constantly expanding their sound, Hollow Leg have the drive and ambition needed to become lords of the stoner metal underground.
Underground Symphony is proud to announce the signing with Sangreal for the release of their debut album.
The brainchild of the guitar player Jahn Carlini, mind and composer of the Venetian power metallers Great Master, the line-up of Sangreal is composed by Gabriele Grilli on vocals (ex-Doomsword, ex-Fury N' Grace), Alessandro Battini (Dark Horizon, Ghost City) on keyboards, Francesco Russo (ex-Shadows Of Steel, Hungry Daze) on the guitar, the Cypriot bass player Paris Lambrou (ex-Arrayan Path, Astronomikon) and the Finnish multi-instrumentalist Matti Auerkallio (Ultimatium, Katra) on drums.
Sangreal is a Sacred Epic Metal Project to connect the epic metal to the sacred of the ancient religious scriptures, an epic journey between legends and history, a metal sound with disruptive orchestral and score arrangments, as if the Warlord and Manowar ideally meet Epica and Myrath.
The album will be available in May 2019 in digipak edition and limited edition in vinyl.
Soon the cover, the tracklist and the first single of the album will be announced.
Last month On October 27, the Greek symphonic death metal band Dimlight released “Kingdom of Horrors”, the first instalment of their latest full-length work. “Kingdom of Horrors” is much more than “just an album”; in fact, it’s a multiform conceptual release scheduled to come out in two parts and centred around an original dark-fantasy storyline. Following up and expanding the standard they set with their previous album, “The Lost Chapters”, this time Dimlight have created an entire world to set their new album in:
“Kingdom of Horrors” is set in a fantastic high antiquity, right after mankind rose again from the destruction of a devastating global cataclysm. In this harsh world of sorcery, corsairs and warlords, where a tyrannical empire rules with god-like impunity, a young man by the name of Athanor is caught up in his own, personal tragedy. He loses all that he loves through forces beyond his control and ends up wandering and devastated, looking for some way to dull his pain. Pursuing old legends, he manages to find an unholy way into Irkala Kar, the Underworld, where the deformed dead dwell. There, he is forced to face nightmarish creatures in the hopes of being reunited with his lost loved ones; but only too late will he realize that the worst monster of all down there is his own self…
The first part of this release is comprised of three pieces: first, the “Kingdom of Horrors” album, delivered in Dimlight’s signature heavily orchestrated brand of death metal with a strong mix of female and male brutal vocals on the forefront. Majestic and atmospheric arrangements mix with aggressive riffs and pounding tempos at full speed, to create a chilling and insanely triumphant vibe. “Kingdom of Horrors” was mixed and mastered at Dark Cortex Studio by Invoker Peter, while the cover artwork is a creation of Mathos Stergiou (Manster Design). Then there’s the “Realm of Tragedy” album, a trippy, post-rock instrumental release, providing soundscapes to describe Dimlight’s post-cataclysmic concept. “Realm of Tragedy” was mixed and mastered at Dark Cortex Studio by Invoker Peter, while the cover artwork is a creation of Achilleas Xydis. Finally, there’s the “Bowels of Madness” horror-adventure novella, a paperback publication in which the entire concept of the release is laid out in detail.
All three pieces of the first installment (Two albums and the paperback) can be ordered now at Dimlight’s official page www.dimlightband.com/shop

First formed in 2006, Dimlight are highly active in live performances worldwide, touring from Europe to the Middle East and sharing a stage with such talent as Arch Enemy, Lacuna Coil, Epica, Septic Flesh, Firewind, Annihilator, The Haunted and many more. Their first album, “Obtenebration” debuted in 2009, followed by “Psychosynthesis”, in 2012. Despite a rising tide of difficulties and misfortunes that would have justified any band to quit, Dimlight pressed on through the storm and in 2015 they released their concept album “The Lost Chapters”, confirming their resilience, passion and dedication to delivering high quality extreme music which always pushes the envelope with each step of the way.
