Forever Plagued Records have set August 28th as the international release date for Nox's "Ancestral Arte Negro". Hailing from Colombia, Nox are not to be confused with any other bands of that name. They represent pure Satanic and evil black metal from South America, bringing to you true art and standards: traditional hateful black metal done by acolytes of true vision and beliefs, lost but not forgotten within the deep underground! We won't bore you with comparisons and similarities to other artists that came before, because we at Forever Plagued Records are confident that our standards of black metal, even in the 21st century, are held to high value within the worldwide underground. But with Nox, you can expect true black metal the way it's supposed to be: aggressive and dark, with feeling and hatred that reverberates through their raw sound and screams! Tired of the digitalized sounds and improvisations? Then support Nox, and may your dark soul be consumed!
Their new EP, Nox's "Ancestral Arte Negro" comprises four tracks and is presented on a black-vinyl 7" record. Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies, it also comes with a 7"x 7" insert - support true black metal the way it was meant to be and buy a physical copy. The first song to be revealed is the EP's title track, which can be heard at Forever Plagued's Soundcloud here.
Long-running brutal death metal unit, Internal Suffering, has dropped the punishing fruits of their "Cyclonic Void Of Power" full-length upon the masses. Captured at 16th Cellar Studios in Rome (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour Of Penance, Hideous Divinity, etc.) by Italian death metal mastermind Stefano Morabito (Eyeconoclast, ex-Hour Of Penance), "Cyclonic Void Of Power" spews forth the band's traditionally fast yet chaotic and wildly technical brand of sonic malevolence. A concept album divided into three separate chapters, "Cyclonic Void Of Power" follows the mystical, mythological and magic chaotic universe the band has explored on previous outings into far more complex realms.
In celebration of its release, No Clean Singing is currently hosting a stream of the record in all its malicious divinity noting, "There aren't many bands anywhere who can operate at the absolutely blistering pace of this one, and even fewer who use their skills so expertly to create death metal that's both chaotically ferocious and yet machine-precise. And while the pure head-scrambling adrenaline rush you get from listening to this brutally decimating cyclone of power is reason enough to take the plunge on the new album, Internal Suffering also manage to generate an atmosphere of inhuman horror that blankets their sonic conflagration like a poisonous fog."

In a positive investigation of the record, Burning Ambulance places frontman Fabio Marin, "somewhere between Cannibal Corpse's George 'Corpsegrinder' Fisher and Deicide's Glen Benton, his ability to shift between a low gurgling roar and a blast-furnace like exhale-bellow particularly indebted to the latter man," further elaborating, "Guitarist Diego Alonso whips up a minor tornado of riffs and high-speed zipping squeals, shifting seamlessly from low-end rumbles to mid-range table-saw sounds as Garcia and drummer Wilson Henao keep the music grounded and drive it forward, respectively."
Dead Rhetoric calls "Cyclonic Void Of Power", "A solid pick-me-up of sonic brutality," while Angry Metal Guy notes, "If you're a fan of no-frills, light-speed brutality, Cyclonic Void Of Power won't disappoint." Gushed Stereogum upon their premiere of "Unleash The Antarctic Colossus," "Cyclonic Void Of Power... runs deeper than the typical blast of brutal death metal... these ten songs plus one cold Lovecraftian ode form a conceptual whole."
Bestialized return to wreak havoc one more time. 'Termestella Cvltvs' is the band's third and latest, and even more ferocious than the predecessors. This is Slayer of the 21st century - if you consider how extreme the sound can develop while keeping that same fiery intent alive and with the aid of the newest and the harshest form of black and death metal. Only the South Americans can whip up such a storm, taking a leaf from revolutionary acts like Krisuin, Abhorrence and Rebaelliun, and furthermore using that level of lightening-speed execution to propel an even sharper and vicious form of extreme metal.
The hate that is emitted here is unparalleled. The causticity is palpable - your skin can feel it. It's time to take things up a notch or 10 and revel in this new form of malicious and wicked music. This is the purest form of blistering black metal that remains unabated and ruthless from start to finish. A real adrenaline rush, if there ever was one for this style of uncompromising music.

A concept album divided into three separate chapters, "Cyclonic Void Of Power" follows the mystical, mythological and magic chaotic universe the band has explored on previous outings into far more complex realms.

Spawned in 1996, Internal Suffering relocated from their home base in Pereira, Columbia to Madrid, Spain. Notorious for their apocalyptic brand of brutal, blasting, technically proficient death metal, the band's bestial discography includes four full-lengths: 2000's "Supreme Knowledge Domain" (Repulse Records), 2002's "Chaotic Matrix" (Displeased Records), 2004's "Choronzonic Force Domination" (Displeased Records), and 2006's "Awakening of the Rebel" (Unique Leader Records), the last two of which featured the production of extreme metal sound-wizard Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal/ex-Morbid Angel).
A maniacal work ethic and thirst to spread their audio peril globally has allowed Internal Suffering the opportunity to ransack stages throughout the US, Europe, and Asia along the iconic likes of Cannibal Corpse, Sodom, Incantation, Exodus, and Origin, among many more.
"Suffering is the Seed", the sophomore album from Colombian Death / Black Metallers Nepente will get the vinyl treatment from Cimmerian Shade Recordings. The RingMaster Review called the album "a savage and sonically scurrilous violation, a torment of intensity and unbridled devastation". Targeted for later this year, Suffering is the Seed will be the first vinyl release for the U.S. label.
In the meantime fans can look forward to new Nepente EP "I Will Get Your Soul", which will be released through Cimmerian Shade Recordings on March 31. And this time the temperature is raised to "face-melt!" "I Will Get Your Soul" was recorded at Manizales Studio (Manizales Colombia), and mixed/mastered at Hertz Recording Studio (Bialystock, Poland) by Slawomir Wieslawski and Wojciech Wieslawski.
