Italian sludge merchants Juggernaut return with their most complex, powerful and strongly evocative instrumental record to date. They share a first single taken from their cinematic sludge metal masterpiece "Neuroteque", due out October 11th on Subsounds Records.
Listen to Orbitalia NOW!
Neuroteque, the place where everything is allowed, where everything takes the risk of becoming something else. Urban and science fiction scenarios overlap with bucolic and mystical incursions, sweet lullabies turn into screams, a stealthy step becomes a crazy ride.
On their upcoming, third album, the four-piece band Juggernaut from Rome, Italy, deliver seven tracks as the seven different doors to enter Neuroteque: A lisergic menu of cinematic progressive, metallic psychedelia, mellow and disturbing atmospheres. This record holds seven stories of harmonic and emotional transformation, seven winding paths towards Neuroteque.
Says the band:-
"Neuroteque is a new step forward in the research and definition of the way we think music. It certainly picks up where "TRAMA!" left off, but new images and emotions shuffle the cards towards a more abstract, kaleidoscopic and exciting trip. We are immensely proud and anxious to share our new studio work with everyone! "

Italian Brutal / Tech Death crew Carnageslumber to release debut album "Sadistic Mechanical Evolution" via Extreme Metal Music
Italian label Extreme Metal Music is excited to announce they will be releasing fellow countrymen Carnageslumber's full length "Sadistic Mechanical Evolution" to follow the band's self-titled debut EP also unleashed on the label in 2016.
Inspired by the likes of Deicide, Morbid Angel, Nile, and Cannibal Corpse, Carnageslumber have been assaulting the masses with brutal technical death metal since 2014. Evolving their approach of extreme music with an "old school style" along with their lyrics based on human guinea pigs and self-destructive behaviour, the band offers up a sound that is best described as 'gloomy, dark, dirty, low, yet classic'. This next release is more mature and technically advanced to showcase how the band has grown musically since their first effort.
Featuring vocalist Paolo “Zodd” Sofia (Velchans), drummer Lorenzo Reina (ex-Cadaver Mutilator) and guitarist Salvo Di Marco, Carnageslumber's forthcoming album "Sadistic Mechanical Evolution" is ready to annihilate fans with over 30 minutes during eleven gut-punching tracks that unleash a carnage that will wake you up from your slumber.
The band adds:
"'Sadistic Mechanical Evolution' is the canvas on which we wanted to describe the morbid need of humankind (and other "living things"). Focusing particularly upon the exploitation of the human guinea pig, analysing, and in some cases, both state of mind, victim, and executioner. Almost every song written on this album expresses all of this through the free inspiration and interpretation of more or less famous films, books, comics, and historical events."
"Sadistic Mechanical Evolution" will be available on October 25, 2019.

Italian group Abeyance aim to reshape the 90’s Melodeath style through the music, vocals and deep introspection-oriented lyrics, whilst offering its own unique sound and identity. Although the band is inspired by old school sounds, more modern influences can be found within the bands deep grooves.
The project was founded in early 2016 by drummer Michele Adami and the vocalist Jacopo Marinelli. As Michele started the songwriting work, the guitarists Gianluca Fraschini and Andrea Mantelli joined the band, contributing to compositions. A more progressive mark was brought by soloist Gianluca and from the other side more classic riff structures from Andrea.
In summer 2018, the songs for a new EP were almost complete with other tracks kept aside for future releases. With this in mind, the band decided to enter the recording studio in November. Michele completed and recorded the bass lines (taking over the work of original bassist Rebecca Bertozzo), in addition to his drums parts. Guitars and vocals followed shortly after until the EP was completed in late January. The band is now determined to steadily grow and offer their music to the an expanding audience, starting with both local and national live shows. The new EP Portraits of Mankind will be released via Sliptrick Records soon with Abeyance already working on more material for future full-length releases.
