Polish extreme metal veterans Vader are releasing their new EP titled "Thy Messenger". Also, the band have revealed a new lyric video for the single 'Steeler'.
Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvpidgZYb00
The band states:-
"We are so happy to give You all Vader’s new EP 'Thy Messenger'. We recorded those five songs in January when we were supposed to record a full-length album. However, we changed some plans and dates, which delayed the LP till December 2019. Since we already had several songs ready, we decided to travel to Hertz Studio again and record as an independent release. We added a re-make of a title track from album 'Litany', which was recorded 20 years ago. This one became one of favourites among our fans and we plan to perform the whole album as part of live-set in Autumn this year. The other song is our version of 'Steeler' from the legendary Judas Priest 'British Steel' record and is our huge respect for their heritage in the metal scene. In the meantime, we’re working on the new album in Grindstone Studio in UK with Scott Atkins as producer and there is only some vocals and leads left to finish. We will visit many festivals and our own shows in Summer and Autumn and we will bring songs from 'Thy Messenger' on stage too. See ya soon and… STAY VADERIZED \m/".

'Thy Messenger' was recorded over a week-long period in January and February at Hertz Studio in Białystok, Poland under the supervision of the Wiesławski Brothers. The cover art was painted by Wes Benscoter, who previously worked with Vader on the 'De Profundis' LP and has collaborated with such bands as Slayer, Kreator and Sinister.
A new full Vader album will be recorded later this year for a tentative autumn release.
Vader have one UK show currently scheduled for 2019 as follows :
June 29th – Hop Fest, Black Prince, Northampton
Ukraine's most ferocious metal export Jinjer have officially begun work on their highly anticipated third album and follow up to their Napalm Records debut King Of Everything (2016) and their amazing “Micro” EP (2018). Once again teaming up with sound producer Max Morton at Kaska Studio in Kiev, the as of yet untitled album is expected to be released sometime in fall 2019 and promises to be their best and most fierce material to date.
"No rest for the wicked! Together with our long time friend and producer Max Morton, we are pleased to announce that we’ve entered Kaska Studio in Kiev to begin recording our third full album, to be released later this year. Trust us, it’s gonna blow your heads off," says the band.
Hot off the heels of the news that numerous North American dates with special guests The Browning being upgraded to bigger venues and some shows near the sell out point, Jinjer have also announced a full blown European Headline Tour in November/December to coincide with the release of their new album.
Jinjer seem determined to take over the world one country at a time and by any means necessary:-
“Europe! We are coming for you! The time has come to show you the fiercest side of Jinjer ever, with a new album, new songs as well as all our older hits and a few surprises in-between. We know a lot of you have been waiting for us to do a proper headline tour with our own production and that time has finally come! Join us this November/December throughout Europe and the United Kingdom and help us celebrate this new era with a bang!”

Repent, the end is near, and sonic hell is soon to be unleashed again with eight new, ungodly anthems to death and extinction - Płock, Poland based Kingdom return with "Rotting Carcass Arise upon the Burial Mound". No fallacy, no poseur, no post-isms, just pure epitome of death metal, with a bunch of its unrelenting disciples bowing and paying homage to the ancient godz ov war, blasphemy and death! Gnarly and ghastly, putrid, grinding and crushing, pummelling and bone-breaking, devastating metal of death, surpassing everything the horde have released to date. Plus, as 'tradition' has it, a cover - Kingdom's take on Samael's "Baphomet's Throne". No cross unturned, no prisoner taken, just sonically lobotomised and mutilated bodies piling up a burial mound...
STH reveals the message of the new opus:-
"And I looked, and beheld a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And I saw, and beheld a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. We are Kingdom. We speak Death!"
"Rotting Carcass Arise upon the Burial Mound" is scheduled for a release on 6th June 2019 as standard jewel case CD with a twelve-page booklet and in digital formats through Godz Ov War Productions.
The material was recorded at Garaż Studio, the whole production was handled by MateuSz, and the album cover and layout were created by the ever-astonishing Maciej Kamuda.
You can already pre-order your copy here.
Streaming of two filthy pieces off the record, "Rotting Carcass Arisen" and "Burial Mound", available at this location.

Polish Gothic / Alternative Metallers Arshenic release new single & official video 'Dear Remorse' (taken from the album 'Final Collision') through Sliptrick Records.
Dear Remorse is a music video from Arshenic’s forthcoming album Final Collision. The song has a Doom / Gothic aesthetic with female lead vocals, background screams and symphonic nuances.
The story behind the clip is referring to relationships between people living in their physical bodies and other non-physical entities like ghosts, angels or demons, presences of which all of us may sometimes experience. It also can be seen as a expression of loss, despair and abandonment when someone close to us disappears from our life.
Final Collision | Released August 20th 2019 via Sliptrick Records

New Zealand Thrashers Alien Weaponry release "Ahi Kā" music video; currently touring North America, European tour this summer
Alien Weaponry have released the music video for their new single, "Ahi Kā", which premiered last week over at Billboard. The song represents the first new material from the New Zealand based metal trio since releasing their 2018 debut album, Tū. Fans can check out the music video for "Ahi Kā" via the link below. The track is also featured on Adult Swim's new, streaming-only compilation record Metal Swim 2.
Alien Weaponry's singer-guitarist Lewis de Jong talks about "Ahi Ka" (Which, like many of the band's songs, is sung in New Zealand's indigenous language of Te Reo Māori):-
"Ahi Kā was inspired by the Auckland city council's decision to burn down what was considered to be the unsightly indigenous Maori village of Okahu Bay in advance of Queen Elizabeth II's 1953 visit. The eviction sparked a 40-year battle for the native Ngati Whatua to reclaim their land, including protests and battles with the police. Amid worldwide criticism, a small portion of the original land was ultimately returned with an apology and some compensation."
Watch "Ahi Ka" HERE
"Ahi Kā" is available for streaming and purchase through Spotify and iTunes (respectively) over HERE!
Fans and music critics alike have applauded the band's approach to unifying Te Reo Māori (the native language of New Zealand) with thrash metal sensibilities; ultimately creating a sound that is driven by emotionally and politically charged conflict while boasting youthful, warrior-like resilience.
Both Lewis and Henry are of Ngati Pikiāo and Ngati Raukawa (Māori tribal) descent, and began their schooling at a kura kaupapa Māori (full immersion Māori language school) where singing waiata (songs) and performing haka were a daily routine. Also ingrained in their early education were stories of New Zealand history told to them by their father, who would also introduce them to the music of Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Anthrax, Ministry, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many others.
Alien Weaponry was formed in 2010 by brothers Lewis (vocals & guitar) and Henry de Jong (drums), who were 8 and 10 years old at the time. The two would later move to the small town of Waipu in 2012, and went on to meet Ethan Trembath (bass) there in 2013. The de Jong brothers came up with the name Alien Weaponry after watching the film District 9.
Alien Weaponry have also been nominated for "Best International Breakthrough Band" at the 2019 Heavy Music Awards (UK). The event takes place on August 22nd at the O2 Forum Kentish Town in London. Fan voting is now open at https://vote.heavymusicawards.com/ until June 27th.

Arshenic is a rock/metal band from Poland. The music of Arshenic is inspired by such trends as art rock, alternative metal, progressive rock, goth metal, melodic metal and dark rock. The name of the band is a reference to arsenic, which is a poison and also a cure. That duality can be easily heard in the group’s songs. A strong female charismatic image is the calling card of the band and the sound is mainly defined by the various types of female vocals, both singing and screaming, clean and distorted guitars, diverse bass parts and dynamic drum playing with a little flavour of electronics, cellos and orchestral sounds in the background. Arshenic’s lyrics cover topics like individualism, self-expression and inner emotional states and are written mostly in a dark poetic manner.
The group was formed in 2007 in Poland by the vocalist Ofilia. That same year, Arshenic recorded material for their first EP. After that the group played numerous concerts and went on tour around Poland as a support for leading goth rock groups in their country while also recording their first promotional album. In 2015, after a 3 year hiatus and line-up changes, Arshenic started to work on new material which culminated in the EP Erased in 2016 plus the single and video for the track Monster. In 2018, the music video Unspoken was released which tells a twisted story about spirituality.
Their new album Final Collision is set for release via Sliptrick Records on August 20th 2019 with the single and official video release of Dear Remorse preceding that on May 15th 2019.

Necro is a thrash metal project created by Piotr Sobaszek who previously has played in bands like Necrophobic, Free man, SOS !, Different World and THD. The first single 'Time Is Coming' appeared in September 2017 with all instruments and vocals recorded by Piotr in his Small Home Studio. Vocalist Leszek Ganiek (Different World) joined in January 2018 and in that month, they recorded a digipak promo Chwalcie Potęgę Pieniądza (3 songs in Polish). In April 2018, the full-length album Toothless Zombie was released, which contains 12 tracks fully introducing the Necro sound.
In June, a new vocalist Bartek Płaszewski (Herezis) joined the project and his first recording, No Mercy For Motherfuckers was released in July. Next up will be the album Propaganda which will be released in 2019 via Sliptrick Records. The album contains 11 tracks of thrash metal – aggressive and rhythmic, melodic and powerful at the same time.
Necro gives you simple and sometimes playful lyrics which go straight to the bone. The choruses of the songs are really catchy, packing a mighty punch. The music is essentially a mixture of the old school with a modern sound. You can hear all kinds of extreme techniques in the vocals which can also be clear and melodic. The album has 2 special tracks in the Polish language, both of which, have appeared on the polish radio hit list.
