French brutal deathcore / death metal quartet Hurakan will release their third album, "Via Aeterna", April 15th on Lacerated Enemy Records! The band has released music videos for the album's three singles, all of which can be viewed at the following links:
Statement from the Band:
"'Via Aeterna' starts a new era for Hurakan, and we couldn't be more excited to share it with all of you after two years of intensive work. We have pushed our boundaries in composition and performance, resulting in a more cohesive, organic and mature music taking the listener through different atmospheres and emotions on a blistering journey. We feel this is our biggest and most successful effort to date, 'Via Aeterna' reflects Hurakan's new state of mind, inspired by the mental problems that everyone can unfortunately endure in their lives, but also about existential issues such as death, the aftermath and the anguish it can bring."
"Via Aeterna" was written and recorded by Maxime Maréchal, Raphaël Darras, Thomas Crémier and Danny Louzon. Philippe Parickmiler composed additional arrangements to give a full orchestration experience to each song. The band's drummer, Thomas Crémier, created the sound design, recorded, re-amped, mixed and mastered the album at his studio, SoundBlast Studios.
The album cover was painted by Nightjar art of Adam Burke (Fit For an Autopsy, To The Grave...).
Finnish brutal death metallers Enragement sign with Rising Nemesis Records; new album out this Spring
Rising Nemesis Records is very proud to announce the signing of Helsinki, Finland-based brutal death metallers, Enragement.
Active since 2006, Enragement took their time in becoming the group they are now slowly, only getting to their current stage musically upon the 2014 release of their debut album, "Omnimalevolence Of Man". Afterward, the band dropped a well-received follow-up, Burned, Barren, Bloodstained, in 2017 via Finnish label Inverse Records. After many years of slow yet steady musical evolution, the band has finally found a new home in Rising Nemesis Records where they seek to put out their best material to date.
The group will be releasing their third album in the spring of 2022 via Rising Nemesis Records. Keep an eye out for new music and news tied to that effort coming soon.
Enragement comment on signing with Rising Nemesis Records:-
"With our third full-length, we set the bar high for ourselves. As the efforts on song writing, pre-production, and final studio production had already been enormous, we set out to find a label that could give the album the perfect final touch. With Rising Nemesis Records specialization in brutal death metal, we’re 100% sure we teamed up with one of the best possible labels for this release."
A new song, music video and pre-orders are expected to be released on January 31st.
“Quiescence” continues the space motif from Analepsy’s previous releases, but from a different perspective. There are no living creatures, only the deserted cosmos awaiting its own demise. The album features guest appearances from Ricky Myers (Suffocation, Disgorge), Angel Ochoa (Cephalotripsy, Disgorge, Abominable Putridity, Condemned) and Wilson Ng (Facelift Deformation, Vermicular Incubation).
The band commented:
"We are delighted to present our most recent work: Quiescence! This has been a tight process, and despite all the changes the band went through, everything worked like clockwork. The essence of our music lives on!"
The recordings of “Quiescence” took three months (August - October, 2021), entailing the skills of guitarist / co-founder Marco Martins, guitarist/vocalist Calin Paraschiv (ex-Pestilence), bassist João Jacinto and ex-drummer Tiago Correia. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Miguel Tereso at Demigod Recordings studio in Caxarias, Portugal.
The cover artwork was created by Pedro Sena - Lordigan.
Analepsy's sound can be described as a crossover between old-school brutal death metal and modern melodic elements. The correct pronunciation of the name of the band is "uh-nuh-leh-psy" [ʌnʌlepsy], and it was chosen due to its (now obsolete) meaning: recovery of strength after an illness. The band was formed in late 2013 and started gaining popularity with the single "Genetic Mutations". Their short discography embraces the 2015 EP "Dehumanization by Supremacy", followed by 2017 debut album "Atrocities from Beyond" and split release "The Kraanialepsy Split", to whom the band was invited by Kraanium. The release of "Atrocities from Beyond" was met with growing interest and turned the eyes of many towards the band. In the months that followed its release, ANALEPSY won the Portuguese W:O:A Metal Battle, to later perform at Wacken Open Air 2017. Their first show outside Europe led them to Japan in 2019.

There are many brutal death metal bands around and it's hard to find ones that have their own sound or are attempting to do their own thing. After a point it does get quite repetitive if not redundant and there's little that stays with you long after the onslaught is over. Cutterred Flesh here however are unlike any of those bands. Their approach is not only markedly different but refreshing. The songs often start deceptively and you're wondering how is this brutal death metal but then the music kicks in and you know it's all over. It's time to call the closest funeral home. Two songs are streaming on Bandcamp and our YouTube channel and even they may not be enough to give you a complete idea of the music on this outstanding album.
Defying all expectations, Czech brutal death metal band Cutterred Flesh give birth to an album that can be regarded as an anomaly in the style, an aberration for a band sounding this heavy and brutal. Their constant variations, shocking mood changes, and tempo fluctuations belie the impossibly wide girth and ponderous gait of this band. And yet, they’re nimble and inventive, deceptively fast and catchy, emotive and thoughtful, and will invariably pound your skull into the ground and mercilessly at that. The strange juxtaposition of the slower, plaintive tunes with the bone-shattering blasting parts is as fascinating as it is lethal - it will catch you off guard and won’t play nice.
It’s akin to a deranged psychopath killer showing overwhelming tendencies of remorse for his victims, but then killing them all anyway. It just has to be done. Cutterred Flesh aren’t fucking around; they mean business but the way they do it is revolutionary and extremely effective. This album is loaded with all the death metal riffs you need, all the diversity to not only set the songs apart but also keep things interesting, and that warm, comforting, bludgeoning heaviness that will put you to sleep, perhaps permanently. And you won’t see it coming. This is as good as a brutal death metal album can get being progressive without betraying its core sound and values.

The band have shared a few words with us to give you an idea of what to expect when you head to the Gore House channel...
"Our album is a symbiosis of several subgenres of brutal death metal! You will hear insane blastbeats, atmosphere, slamming riffs and technical riffs inherent in technical death metal, and of course ultra brutal guttural with old school growling. Our members love all death metal, from Ulcerate and Gorguts to Last Day Of Humanity, which is why on the album we tried to come to a common denominator through the theme of an ancient and undersoil swarm of insects that woke up in order to devour humanity and revive their population! Our goal is to get the listener to move to the beat of our slam grooves and just enjoy full quality brutality!"
So now you know what awaits, it's time to expose yourself to 'Posthumous Grief'!
The First Shining Of New Genus will be unleashed on February 19th 2021 and pre-orders are live now!
