From the sewers of Copenhagen emerge Undergang! The filthy bastards in Undergang are preparing to unleash their fifth full-length album of sewer death metal, "Aldrig I Livet".
The first taste of "Aldrig I Livet" comes with the official music video for album track "Menneskeæder." Watch the video at this location.
"Aldrig I Livet" will be out on Dark Descent Records/Me Saco Un Ojo Records December 4 on digital, CD, cassette and vinyl. Pre-order the album at darkdescentrecords.bandcamp.com/album/aldrig-i-livet
Since 2008, Denmark’s Undergang have been pursuing the deepest, darkest depths of total death metal. Steeped in the classics, the quartet aren’t so much “old school” like so many HM-2 worshippers nowadays as they are simply old-sounding, brazenly brandishing a sound that nods to early Finnish death metal, slimy doom-death as equally as timeless goregrind. It’s a sound that’s garnered the band a legion of devotees across the world, and justifiably so.
And while it’s been three interminably long years since their last album, Misantropologi, at long last do Undergang arrive with their long-awaited fifth full-length: "Aldrig I Livet". Simply put, this is Undergang at their very best, subtly striving for new twists on their characteristic sound whilst making that sound more engaging than ever before. Graced with utterly crushing production, "Aldrig I Livet" is undoubtedly the band’s most ominous record to date, rooting among the ruins of the most desolate doom-death committed to tape and warping that wreckage with slithering solos that seem to creep like tendrils across an inter-dimensional portal.
It’s a sick and sickening slog through the sewers of the subconscious – forecasted by the cover art, once again courtesy of vocalist/guitarist David Mikkelsen – and Undergang effortlessly lumber forth with a swagger that’s startling to behold. Even this many years into their celebrated catalog, the quartet show no signs of relinquishing their crown as Denmark’s premier death metal champions, and "Aldrig I Livet" is disgusting proof.

Finland's Lie In Ruins have premiered a brand new track off their forthcoming album, Floating in Timeless Streams. The song, "(Becoming) One with the Aether," is streaming now at this location.
Dark Descent Records will release Floating in Timeless Streams November 20 on CD, digital and vinyl. Pre-order the album HERE.
Lie In Ruins will unleash their most intense release to date with Floating in Timeless Streams. Throughout these 8 hellish tracks, Lie In Ruins twists their cavernous sound into new, more violent forms.
"(Becoming) One with the Aether" is the second track released off of Floating in Timeless Streams. The album's first single, “Spectral Realms of Fornication” is streaming at this location.
Six years after Lie In Ruin's last full-length (2014's Towards Divine Death), Floating in Timeless Streams sees a more streamlined approach from the band. A departure from the 70+ minute onslaught of Towards Divine Death, Floating in Timeless Streams delivers a more calculated attack, clocking in at 41 lethal minutes.
Floating in Timeless Streams continues to highlight the tremendous guitar work of Roni Ärling and Tuomas Kulmala, their mastery backed by new addition of Corpsessed drummer Jussi-Pekka Manner. The album is rounded out by the tormented and guttural vocals of Roni Sahari (Desolate Shrine).
Lie In Ruin’s magnum opus, Floating in Timeless Streams is arguably the most brutal album of 2020. Finnish death metal's finest!

Brazilian death / thrash quartet Nervosa are back! Fourth studio album, 'Perpetual Chaos', due January 2021
The four warriors of thrash / death frontrunners Nervosa stay true to their roots while exploring new terrain with a revitalized line-up!
A heavy, uncontrollable vortex led by the full-speed thrash / death metal engine Nervosa is ready to attack the world and leave nothing but Perpetual Chaos (out January 22 via Napalm Records) in its wake! Their talented new line up – featuring founding guitarist Prika Amaral and talented new members Diva Satanica on vocals, Mia Wallace on bass and Eleni Nota on drums – strike with inexorable full femme power, showcasing their ability for critical and straightforward lyricism mixed with an intoxicating blend of thrash spiced with remarkable death metal assaults.
Their high-speed new single, “Guided By Evil”, is the first offering from next year’s full-length and highlights their sinister new facets, whilst also underlining their unmistakable thrashing roots. The fitting audio-visual grabs the demons by the horns and evokes a bloody, enigmatic spell. The first single pulls no punches by dissecting the concept of two-faced people who eventually stab you in the back – truly guided by evil. Enter the coven and be a part of the next generation of Nervosa!
Guitarist Prika Amaral comments:
“It was a wonderful experience with these girls, they are all very talented and did an excellent job, I have never been so happy with the final result of a record. I chose Artesonao studio in Malaga, because it is isolated and in an extremely beautiful place, we worked hard but we had the best vibe between us.”
Watch “Guided By Evil” HERE
Pre-Order the new album Perpetual Chaos NOW!
Perpetual Chaos was recorded in Malaga at Artesonao Casa de Grabación Studio by Martin Furia, who also produced the new full-length with Prika Amaral – the explosive outcome is mastered by Yarne Heylen.
Vocalist Diva Satanica on the album process:
“It was undoubtedly a very intense process in every way. Not only did we learn to work together, but also to get to know each other and live together. I am very lucky to be able to be part of a project like this and I am sure that with the release of this album, Nervosa will take a very important step in its career. Working with Martin Furia was incredible, he helped me to find nuances in my voice that I didn't know I had. Get ready, for a new era more powerful than ever!”
Guided by a marvellous force of uncompromising thrash and death metal, the raw power of Perpetual Chaos has its finger on the pulse of time: lyrically, Nervosa does not hesitate to tackle issues that impact the very core of society as we know it. From political grievances and amplifying the voices of minorities to protesting against factory farming, capitalism and succumbing to the ill-informed musings of social elites - these commanding women do not mince words.
Tracks like the airtight opener “Venomous”, the fast-twitching “Until The Very End” and “Time To Fight” prove that Nervosa’s revitalized identity experiments with both fresh new elements and crucial auditory foundations without succumbing to any clichés. “Genocidal Command” perks ears with Diva Satanica’s vocal eloquence, accented by the outstanding range of Schmier (Destruction) whilst mirroring a rousing thrash metal manifest. A tremendous outcome awaits with brawl-brushed guitar lines, blisteringly fast drums and critical lyricism – striking the listener in a way only Nervosa could. Viva Perpetual Chaos!

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.
Watch the music video: https://youtu.be/MvWQXb0qfdk
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?
Norwegian Black / Death Metallers Brotthogg to release new album "The Die Is Cast" on August 1st; new song 'Nokturne' out now
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. The album is filled with high-speed staccato riffing, massive and intense harmonies, as well as slower parts with a gloomy, heavy atmosphere. The band has now released the first track of the new album, Nokturne, to give you an taste of what to come.
Check it out here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLXAA1dyamo
"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.
