Art by Seeming Watcher
Hell:on was formed in early 2005, in Zaporizhzhia, Eastern Ukraine. Hell:on plays death metal with orient and tribal elements. Lyrics of the band generally deals with mysticism, philosophy and anti-religion. During the recordings of previous albums the band had worked with Andreas Kisser, Jeff Waters, Andy LaRocque, Marek Pajak.
At 2019, band was nominated as Best Ukrainian Metal Act. Shared a stage with Rotting Christ, Kreator, Marduk, Napalm Death etc.
The year 2020 has been a doomsday worshipper’s wild dream and since the woe does not seem to end, Goresoerd has decided to dive into this harsh subject as well. The band is releasing another video single called “Plague” under Inverse Records, which should also end up on their sixth studio album.

Listen to the single:
To ease the pain of lacking concerts this year, Goresoerd is more than happy to present the new song already on this Saturday, 05.09, at rock club Tapper in Tallinn.
The furious track “Plague” was recorded by Magnus Andre (Talbot) at his Andrerecordings studio. The video was filmed by Ander Kolk at Hard Rock Laager this year and was cut together by Rasmus Tauk.
Give it a listen because “nothing will help you, nor the planks on the windows or your cries, nothing will help you.”
With two albums on their back (the first one, “Designed To Dislike”, being considered “the debut album of the year 2007” at MTV’s Danish Metal Awards), Pitchblack is undisputedly on the top of the Danish death metal scene. Their attraction to the Swedish typical brutality is obvious, but their soft spot for aggressive catchiness and surprising, rapid-fire hooks is what makes their approach to the style so special. 2020 is the year Copenhagen quartet return to full-length albums, with “Death & Disbelief”, an effort granted to make Scandinavia shake in its foundations. Eleven tracks of sheers brutality, fast hooks, and that sense of metal-no-frills that makes Denmark’s metal so appealing.
“Death & Disbelief" will be released in digital and LP by Emanzipation Productions, on October 23rd, 2020 and can be pre-ordered here.
Pitchblack was formed in 2002 and, five years later, their “Designed To Dislike” debut album made quite an impact in the Danish and European extreme metal scenes. Fast forward to 2010, and “The Devilty”, their second effort, continued the same path, even featuring Mercyful Fate’s Hank Sherman as guest in one of the solos of the album. The reactions to this record were of extremes: the cover artwork was banned in Germany for being too gore, but the festival promoters did take notice too, and soon Pitchblack was stepping in stages of events such as Download Festival (UK) or Copenhell (DK).
“Death & Disbelief” is, now, the third chapter of the quartet’s history. Where will it lead them?

Without further ado, Norwegian Black / Death Metallers Brotthogg announce their new album "The Die Is Cast". The album is the follow-up to last year album "Echoes Of The Past". "The Die Is Cast" will be released on August 1st.
With this second full-length album following their critically acclaimed debut Echoes of the Past (2019), Brotthogg presents a new hyper charged melodic blackened thrashing beast.

"With our new album we continue to improve our witches' brew of everything we consider to be the best attributes of extreme metal. We aim to offer our listeners the duality of the melodic and the aggressive, the heroic and the chaotic, the moderate and the technical, all in one fine mixture. This is black metal influenced by melodic death metal, and strongly laced with elements of thrash, and I hope we have created an ambitious and intriguing release well worth exploring.”
Brotthogg deals in Melodic Black / Death / Thrash Metal that owes its allegiance to bands like Emperor, Old Man's Child, Symphony X and Dissection. The members are known from bands like Subliritum and Chton. The name Brotthogg is derived from an old forgotten Norwegian word in dialect meaning ”The one who has to take care of the job, the unpleasant one”
Brotthogg's album The Die is Cast is now available for pre-order on their Bandcamp page.

Finnish Old School Death Metallers Skeletal sign with Death In Pieces Records
“Bitterness and Burning Hatred” full length album - CD limited edition to 500 copies, first 50 include sticker + pin
Release date to be announced!!
Skeletal is a death metal band from Jyväskylä Finland, originally formed in 2007, reactivated in 2013.
Musically the band is influenced by late 80's / early 90's classic death and thrash bands, such as Morbid Angel, Death, Pestilence, Carcass and Slayer. The band combines the aggression of thrash and brutality of classic death metal, with ambitious songwriting, melodic guitar leads and atmospheric parts.
“Bitterness and Burning Hatred” is the band’s second full length album, following the debut “Dreadful Life” (2016). This upcoming album features 9 songs of aggressive death metal with old school production and more progressive influences on songwriting.
Nestled in the small northern Norwegian town of Alta, far above the Arctic circle, there's a rumbling of brutality shaking the earth from a young, dynamic metal quintet known as Féleth. Creating heavy, melodic assaults, that transcends the traditional limits of the genre, these great northern Norwegians, are taking their influences of death metal, thrash, deathcore, rock and even elements of Jazz to unleash to the world their debut album "Depravity" due out via DeadPop Records on May 22, 2020.
With songs like 'Swan Song' showing off their deathcore influences, to the epic 'Dissolution' jumping from death metal to jazz to black metal seamlessly, and tracks like 'Pale Tongue' transforming from in your face death metal to a beautiful ambient soundscape, Féleth is a band that is ready to rise to the occasion and leap into the international moshpit.
The album was mixed and mastered by death metal legend, Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy, Shadow of Intent, The Agonist, Beyond Creation) at The Grid Productions. The album also features guest vocals from home town hero, singer / songwriter Petter Carlsen.
Lyrically the album pulls away from traditional death metal tropes, to also criticize capitalism, pollution, fake news and the depravity of humanity at large. Musically, the full length features beautiful melodic leads, heavy chugging guitars, bass solo’s, fast intricate drum work and the huge vocal range from the lead vocalist, Espen Dagenborg.

Russian death metallers Infiltration are pleased to announce that they have signed a worldwide contract with Time To Kill Records, joining the label’s growing roster of premier talent.
The official lyric video of the band's latest single, "Radiation Storm", is available HERE.
The members of Infiltration first came together in 2017 with one goal in mind: to pay homage to some of their favourite death metal, give it their own heavy twist, and to have a blast doing it.
The band's line-up features experienced musicians who used to be involved with such bands as Free At Last, Hellbomb, Chamber Of Torture, Katalepsy, Abnormal, and who shared the stage with iconic acts such as Cannibal Corpse, Carcass, Suffocation and Broken Hope.
In 2017 the band recorded the debut EP "Nuclear Strike Warning", which was very well received by both critics and fans, and made quite a stir in the local music scene. The band also released a single and a lyric video for the song “The Art of War”, supporting the release.
During 2018-2019 the band continued to give live performances, both locally and abroad, all the while, writing and recording the material for the debut full-length album. The autumn of 2019 proved to be a very prosperous time: the band opened for legendary Napalm Death, in front of fully packed venue. Also in September Infiltration released the "Missing in Bodycount" single, off the upcoming album. Shortly after the gig the band decided to release another lyric video, for the song "Radiation Storm", this time via the Slam Worldwide Youtube channel. The clip rapidly gained popularity and positive feedback.
Infiltration will officially announce the release of new music – arriving in the form of their first full-length album – very soon. The album's artwork will be handled by highly acclaimed master of artworks Daemorph (The Black Dahlia Murder, Pyrexia, Lividity).
Stay tuned for more details and music, coming soon!
