French Brutal Death / Grind band Depraved have released a new music video for "Asylum", taken from "Raped Innocence" album, released February 7th, 2020 by Music-Records.
Enjoy here:- https://youtu.be/Tw2azWbOk0I
Band founded in 1992, with more than 180 gigs across Europe, Depraved presents their fourth album "Raped Innocence" scheduled for February 2020.
Depraved, cult band in France in the underground world, shared the stage with Napalm Death, Mortuary, Aborted, Kronos, Benighted, Loudblast, and Mercyless.
"Raped Innocence" reflects the quality and know-how of Depraved component with brutality, in their genre Death Grind.
A promotional tour will be launched for 2020-2021. With "Raped Innocence", Depraved beats eleven times!
"Raped Innocence" order:
With 8 members divided between Italy and France, symphonic metallers Aevum are set to return with their third full-length "Multiverse", which is scheduled to be released on March 27th, 2020 through darkTunes Music Group. The new album is followed-up by an European tour with Orphaned Land in support of the album "Dischronia".
On "Multiverse", epic tunes and electronic elements will encounter hard riffs, with charming voices of Lucille Nightshade and Hydra carrying the ears and hearts of their fans from the third to another dimension.
The new album follows the footsteps of bands like NIGHTWISH, WITHIN TEMPTATION, EPICA and more. Love and affinity towards symphonic sounds, lifeblood, imaginativeness and much more has to be mentioned to handle such a task. And yet, the 8 musicians from France and Italy undeterringly follow that path, while they are firing a salvo of 13 powerful tracks consisting of guitar-riffs meeting skincrawling orchestral and electronic elements.

Finland’s multi-Platinum cello-rock band Apocalyptica have released the video for ‘En Route To Mayhem’, which will transport the viewer to a fantastical post-humanity future. This imaginary world is barren, dusty, and littered with broken pieces of things once considered essential to humankind such as bits of plastic, a teddy bear, crumbling structures, cell phones and computers, bleached bones, and long-forgotten musical instruments. The setting is devoid of mankind, but brimming with the hope of new life; and then one day, thunder, lightning, and one drop at a time, it begins to rain, and Mother Nature steps in. Check out the ‘En Route To Mayhem’ video HERE.
Apocalyptica’s Eicca Toppinen comments:-
“‘En Route To Mayhem’ is a journey of hedonic needs growing into greed and aggression, driving into inner mayhem and ending without satisfaction. This video underlines the fact that however we think we are in control by destroying things and life around us, life itself will take over in the end, always. We are not in control of the bigger picture, and we should be aware of it and raise our respect to life around us.”
The ‘En Route To Mayhem’ video is in support of Apocalyptica’s upcoming album, Cell-0, due out January 10th, 2020 via Silver Lining Music. Produced by Apocalyptica – cellists Eicca Toppinen, Perttu Kivilaakso, and Paavo Lötjönen, and drummer Mikko Sirén and mixed by Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lana Del Rey, Metallica and Black Sabbath), and recorded at Sonic Pump studios in Helsinki.
The recording of Cell-0 followed a four-year break between albums that gave the band a fresh perspective and affected the way they approached the new music. Cell-0 is the quartet's first instrumental album in 17 years and found the musicians challenging themselves to discover new flavours and colours in their respective instruments. For Cell-0 pre-order options, go to this location.
Perttu Kivilaakso comments:-
“Cell-0 has a concept which is to challenge the listeners to question themselves and ask “Am I doing the best I can for the environment, for other beings? Is there still something I can change?”
To highlight environmental issues, the band wanted to ask fans to do something for our planet; so to coincide with the release of the new video, they have launched a very special competition, which will give fans the chance to win the opportunity for Apocalyptica to play in their living room.
To enter, fans will need to show the band how they are making the planet a healthier place for everyone. Fans can head to their Facebook page and comment with photos/videos showing what they are doing to help the planet and telling the band why they should be picked as a winner.
To find out more information, head to the band’s Facebook page. The online contest is open to all European fans from now and will close at 7:00 pm CET Friday, January 10th, 2020. Full terms and conditions can be found here.
In concert, Apocalyptica are known for their moving live performances and will kick off the New Year as Special Guests on Sabaton's 15-country, 23-date European arena tour that begins on January 17, 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland. With a set list that will likely vary night to night, Apocalyptica's performances will be comprised of new songs from Cell-0 as well as from the band's rich catalogue.

French Thrash-Black Metal band Hellixxir release brand new music video for "Oxymoronic Way of Life" from the new album "The Black Fortress" whose duality is the central question in human reflection.
Watch it here:- https://youtu.be/kBu9kl4rOuQ

"A Dull Light Around" allows Hellixxir to come back with a new studio album "The Black Fortress" of which two videos are extracted: "The Black Fortress" & "Oxymoronic Way of Life" The band shared the stage with European and even international bands.

French Pagan Black metallers Tan Kozh reveal a new trailer video for their forthcoming debut album, Lignages Oubliés. Set for international release on November 15th via Antiq, see & hear this first glimpse of Tan Kozh's Lignages Oubliés HERE at Antiq's official YouTube channel.
Tan Kozh was created by Sven (Himinbjorg, Belenos, Möhrkvlth, Ar Bard) in 2015. After composing an album, Yamnah (Belenos) helped him with the lyrics, and they were then joined by Decay (ex-Way to End) on drums, Barved (ex-Les Chants De Nihil) on guitar, and Introspect (Introspect, ex- Les Chants De Nihil) on bass. The recording is fully redone, with playing on a real drum set and with various additions by all members. The band starts concerts in 2018.
The first Tan Kozh album, Lignages Oubliés, is a pagan black metal album inspired by ancient Indo-European myths. The warlike rhythms switch to frenetic blastbeats and some more contemplative passages, including acoustic guitar and fretless bass. The first part of the album contains visions of the past and future wars and destruction, with in the background the awakening of ancient pagan gods and the eternal turn of the wheel of time; the second part of the album is made of prayers addressed directly to ancient gods.
Antiq is a label dedicated to the fully coherent concept of making music through sound, image, video, and attitude. They have been putting their entire existence into it since 2009. Over the years, Antiq have been identified as producers of not only perfectly coherent lyrics and themes through music, but also conceptual art and, of course, the manufacturing of beautiful objects. The label tries as much as it can to work with French creators, and if possible, with the smallest and most serious structures.
French Prog metallers Mantra released a new single from their upcoming album "Medium", set to be released on October 18th via Finisterian Dead End.
Entitled "Mind", the single is a 17 minute long opus that together with its other half explores the body-mind duality along two epic 17 minutes tracks ("Body" and "Mind"), independent from each other but complementary. Superimposed, these two pieces give birth to a third one: the harmony of the body and the mind.
You can listen to "Mind" at this location: https://youtu.be/1qMN_wwdHpk
The new single was premiered in different countries:
The Netherlands: http://www.dutchmetalmaniac.com/2019/10/exclusive-dutch-premiere-mantra-mind/
Lithuania - http://hardrock.lt/vaizdo-klipai/mantra-mind-6581.php
Free spirit of the French metal scene, Mantra have been exploring the boundaries of progressive music for nearly 10 years. Ritual-like atmospheres on stage, shamanic or metaphysical concept-albums: the band cuts loose to give life to genuine shows, and goes as far as incorporating contemporary dance into its appearances on stage.
The quartet, now scattered around France, unveils in 2019 its third album, MEDIUM, a project that once again pushed its limits. Is the body inseparable from the mind? What remains of us after we die? With MEDIUM, Mantra questions the very meaning of life and touches on a form of total art, crystallizing the interactions between reason and spirituality.
As the underlying theme in MEDIUM's design, the complete superimposition of both sides of the vinyl prompted the group to innovate at every stage of its production: composition, arrangements, mixing and even mastering gave in to the exercise, turning this record into an extraordinary experience, where modern metal reconnects with the irresistible will to innovate of his ancestors.
With nearly a hundred shows behind them, including two appearances at Hellfest, Mantra has become in a few years one of the spearheads of the progressive scene. The album "Laniakea", published in 2016, had marked the spirits by its ability to blend violence and softness into a prehistoric tale. MEDIUM sees the band fully assume its role of precursor, offering a record without any compromise, forever insensitive to conventions and standards.
