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!

Maltese Symphonic Extreme Metallers Rising Sunset sign with Wormholedeath; "De Mysterium Tenebris" album release date unveiled
Symphonic Blackened Death Metallers Rising Sunset are proud to announce that they have signed with Wormholedeath for the release of their album "De Mysterium Tenebris" due for release on 08/05/2020 on all digital stores and streaming services worldwide.
'We are proud to release our new full-length album through our new label WormholeDeath. With this 4th studio release we invite the metal community through a dark journey of mysticism and spirituality. Very soon a lyric video of one of our tracks – ‘Serpent of Eden’ will be released .'
Founded by Carlo Calamatta, Rising Sunset emerged on the Maltese Metal Scene at the end of 2001. The concept was to deliver a meaningful message about the profoundness of life, spirituality, divinity and mysticism to its fans. On these foundations, the band debuted with their first EP, 'Rhema' in 2006. 2012 saw the release of the first full length album 'Equinox', which was regarded by many reviewers as a milestone in symphonic power metal. Rising Sunset seemed to have found the perfect musical combination between symphony and metal. Soon after the release of ‘Equinox’, the band went through a drastic change in the line-up. Along with the new members, Rising Sunset morphed from power metal to symphonic gothic metal with their 3rd release 'Decretum'. Powerful guitar riffs, darker lyrics, tempo impetuosity, a female soprano voice, and the introduction of male growls, made 'Decretum' another success for the band. This album was an important stepping stone in the evolution of Rising Sunset.
The band’s 2020 offering, ‘De Mysterium Tenebris’ represents a matured genre which has since evolved to symphonic blackened death. The album will take you on a journey through brutal, black & death metal riffs, melancholic melodies and orchestration, growls and screams & solid drumming intertwined with elaborate song writing. This is an album akin to the ‘Book of Revelation’ taking you into the dark, apocalyptic and prophetic journey. The more you listen to the album the more you cherish the dark journey, mysticism and the stages of metamorphosis that will happen on Earth as the souls of humanity are aligned with the supreme being or condemned for eternity.
