Mass Murder was founded in August 2013 by Francesco Corcio (ex-guitarist of Necrotorture), with the idea to make a new style of Brutal Death Metal utilizing themes and a high quality of sound. With the line-up complete and tracks recorded, the first album Aracnofenik was released in July 2015 which made the band officially active and ready to do gigs promoting the first album. Aracnofenik is an 8 track album whose concept is centred on the human phobia for insects but narrated and seen from the insects point of view. The first release was sold out after a few months of the publishing.
During a static period due to band members leaving to pursue other commitments in life, Francesco didn’t waste time and composed new tracks for a new album, and managed to reform the band through a careful search to come back even more energized and motivated than before, with a desire for growth and aiming for the top. The first member who joined in the band this time was Alessandro Sarni (Viperium) on drums and some months later, with her 5 strings basses, Aurora Corcio joined the project, to complete the backing the wall of sound. The last member who joined in the band was the growling and snarling Aldo Gorgoglione and his presence finalized the official new line up and the return of Mass Murder.
The group is currently finishing their latest opus Extreme Extinction which is set for release via Sliptrick Records in 2020.

Italian Symphonic Power Metallers Ravenword will release their one-time studio album, "Transcendence," on Rockshots Records
Symphonic power metal band Ravenword has signed a worldwide deal with Rockshots Records to release their one-time studio album, Transcendence, on January 31.
Inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe's novel The Raven, the Milan, Italy-based band was originally formed in 2007 by the mind of keyboardist and composer Davide Scuteri (Choirs Of Veritas). After several years of activity, which included a self-titled demo, the band went on a brief hiatus, re-grouping in 2016 when singer Chiara Tricarico (Sound Storm, Moonlight Haze), drummer Michele Olmi (Chronosfear, Skeleeton) and bass/guitar player Cesare Ferrari (Choirs Of Veritas) joined the band, in order to create a one-time studio album that embodies the whole history of the band.
With Transcendence, Ravenword captures the romantic and decadent poetic themes typical of Edgar Allan Poe's period, combined with an equally decadent symphonic metal sound. In line with Ravenword's ode to poetry, the title Transcendence was chosen to symbolize the idea of always going beyond one's perception of reality and seeking deeper meanings.
Chiara Tricarico comments:-
"Transcendence is a collection of super-melodic, symphonic power metal tracks with catchy choruses and beautiful melodies, enriched with fast keyboard solos and both modern and operatic vocals and powerful choirs."
Fans will get a sample of Transcendence later this month with the release of the album's first single and full details on November 29. Mark your calendar!
Transcendence track listing:
1. Blue Roses
2. Life is in Your Hands
3. No More
4. Lullaby of the Last Petal
6. Rain of Stars
7. The Queen of Darkness
8. What I Need
9. The Swansong
11. Crimson Lake
12. The Distance
13. Bleeding Moon

Italian industrial/death metal outfit Geschlecht has released details about their upcoming debut album "New Load Continue" - due out on 29th November 2019 via Time To Kill Records.
The album narrates the story of a player trapped in a video-game. The band comments:
"The protagonist gets swallowed up and has to complete the quest-line of the game by himself. His task will be to break the curse that plagues the 5 great warriors of the game world who will accompany him throughout his journey. The curse brings the warriors in a constant state of inebriation, depriving them of their powers as well and rendering them unable to perform their duty, or defeat the evil demons and gods. Only a gem imbued with the power of the blood moon can break the spell. The player will have to travel the game world to find the gem, in a race against a prophecy that announces the rise of a new god".
Hailing from northern Italy, the band consists of Amedeo Finati (vocals), Amedeo Casale (guitar), Edoardo Volpato (bass), Fabio Speroni (drums): together they have been perfecting their musical skills since 2016, sharing the stage along the way with important Italian acts such as Cripple Bastards, Genus Ordinis Dei and Deathless Legacy.
Produced by Lacuna Coil’s Richard Meiz (also in Genus Ordinis Dei), courtesy of Eclipse Records, the upcoming follow-up to 2016’s self-titled debut EP displays the young band's dazzling ambition and artistic vision. Not afraid to merge industrial vibes and extreme metal hardness, Geschlecht has chiseled out a modern metal album of undeniable impact.
Watch for single premieres, new tour updates, and more news on other upcoming Geschlecht activities to be posted shortly.

Italian Melodic Metal institution Temperance return with their fifth studio album Viridian in January 2020! Temperance is where exceptional vocal melodies, energetic metal guitar riffs, symphonic and electronic atmospheres meet in perfect harmony. Led by a unique vocal triad, Temperance manage to unite heaviness with an impressive level of catchy melodies that will make you want to push the repeat button instantly.
Alessia Scoletti’s ethereal voice, the deep resonance of Michele Guaitoli’s baritone – also known from Napalm label colleagues Visions Of Atlantis - and the rough vocals of the composing mastermind and guitarist Marco Pastorino make Temperance stand out and fulfil everyone’s needs. Viridian is Temperance’s first studio album to be released via Napalm Records since their signing at the beginning of the year.
Marco Pastorino from Temperance on Viridian:
“We're beyond stoked to announce that our new album and first through Napalm Records Viridian is scheduled for worldwide release on January 24th, 2020! Finally, the time has come: Viridian is ready to see the light of the day! We've worked hard during the last year to write our best songs ever. This is our heaviest album so far, yet with a lot of melodies, vocal harmonies and epic modern metal hymns! The recording process was super fun and we really enjoyed finding new, different ways to express ourselves with our music. We really can't wait to spread Viridian all over the world on the next tours - stay tuned for more exciting news!”
Viridian is a perfect blend of green and blue. If you look a little closer at colour psychology, you’ll find that green stands for balance and harmony, while blue is the colour of trust and sincerity. This is exactly what you will get with Temperance’s newest album: the perfectly balanced and harmonized combination of the three singers’ voices, as well as sincerity in regard to the lyrics and Temperance always staying true to themselves.
