The legendary Spanish Doom Metal band Golgotha, have just signed a deal with Xtreem Music for the release of their long-awaited 4th album, 14 years after their previous album "New Life", released in 2005. This new album has just been recorded and it's in the process of being mixed, with its launch planned for the next month of October.
Golgotha emerged in 1992 from the union between its two legendary original members: the guitarist Vicente Payá (UNBOUNDED TERROR) and the vocalist Amón López, who are still the alma mater of the band with the new drummer Tomeu Crespí. The 1st EP "Caves of Mind" was indeed the 1st release of Repulse Records, previous label to Xtreem Music, which closes the circle 25 years later!
The new album, which will contain 8 tracks in the vein of his 1st album "Melancholy", is being recorded and mixed in the Psychosomatic Recording Studio by producer Miguel Angel Riutort "Mega", and the band plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign one month before the official release, where they will offer a series of limited editions on CD, vinyl and T-shirts, which will be announced in due time. Golgotha plans to offer a series of live performances to present the new album after its release.
In addition to the official Facebook site, www.facebook.com/GolgothaOfficialBand, Golgotha is premiering today their new official website www.golgothaofficial.com where all the information regarding the band is concentrated. Soon we will reveal details about the new album once the process of recording and design of the cover art is completed.

Italian Crossover / Death Metal / Grindcore / Thrash Metal outfit Abbinormal have signed with Sliptrick Records.
Abbinormal was originally formed in 1996. The writing of their songs has always been inspired by the philosophy of US crossover group S.O.D.; to produce tracks with a crossover of short and direct styles, with arrogant and irony-filled texts …after recording a demo a few months later, the band promptly disintegrated.
More than 20 years down the road, guitarist Max, with the intention of honouring the pieces written in the past and never published, decides to reform the band with new members. With Eric (vocals and keyboards), Marco (bass) and LKT, a young, powerful and promising drummer, the band write 7 more pieces and rearrange the old songs from the first unpublished demo.
The result is a record entitled 1996, containing 16 short metal crossover songs with thrash, grind and death metal influences and a total duration of just over 23 minutes. Even the artist’s choice for the album cover was not accidental: completely drawn with a pen, it is the work of Davide Scianca, a Milanese artist, visionary and openly influenced by the great master H.R. Giger. The basic idea for creating the cover was made by associating a single word associated with each track that composes the album. The end result embodies the insane vision of Abbinormal.

Says the band:-
"We are absolutely pumped to be working with Argonauta Records on our upcoming release! This coming autumn will be overwhelmed by darkness!“

After several successful albums and an ever-increasing fan base, doom metallers Doomraiser have today announced that they have signed to Italian label Time To Kill Records for the release of their next album.

Through the years the band have shared the stage with acts such as Electric Wizard, Reverend Bizarre, The Gates of Slumber and Orange Goblin and have been experimenting and contaminating their music with raw heavy metal, psychedelia and other influences.
Watch for details on the new album release, new tour updates, and more news on other upcoming Doomraiser activities to be posted shortly.

It’s been a while but they’re back with arguably their finest album to date. Acid Reign will release their third full length on Dissonance this September.
Vocalist Howard Smith had this to say:
“For our first album in 29 years it was vitally important that we find the right home and I feel we have. From the very first contact it was obvious that the Dissonance team not only had an overwhelming enthusiasm for what we have recorded but the intelligence and infrastructure to deliver.
Many involved are the same people I dealt with when curating The Apple Core Archives in 2014 which was a hassle free experience, so we are going to release a four disc retrospective Acid Reign Anthology package after the new album comes out cos I found some more old stuff and our two singles need a CD home. Who knows you may even see some vinyl reissues too!
We cannot wait to unleash this beast and hit the road in support of it, once it’s out it will be two years since we started writing and a year since we recorded it. No one is as keen as us for you all to hear the results. Over the next few months we’ll be drip feeding you all information, we have so many plans for really cool things that we think you are all going to love. Stay tuned.”
Label head honcho Steve Beatty:
"Its great they are back with a new album and I am pleased they are on the Label, its great addition to the roster and I’m excited about the new album. As long as they don’t cover any-more Blondie songs I’m a happy camper!!!!"
In 1991 Acid Reign left an ailing UK thrash scene with a final show at the London Marquee. They toured with the likes of Nuclear Assault, Dark Angel, Exodus, Flotsam & Jetsam, Death Angel, and Candlemass. During this time they put out two full-length albums namely The Fear and Obnoxious following on from their Mini Album debut in 1988, Moshkinstein. A final compilation “The Worst Of Acid Reign” was released and their brief but highly productive career came to an end.
Since returning from a 24-year absence the band featuring original vocalist Howard H Smith, Pete Dee (Bass), Paul Chanter (Guitar), Marc Jackson (Drums) & Cooky (Guitar) have been busy. On the back of two new songs Plan Of The Damned (2015) and The Man Who Became Himself (2017) they hit the road both at home and throughout Europe for numerous tours and festival appearances. Including the now legendary record-breaking Headline slot of the Sophie Stage at Bloodstock 2016.
During this time, they have earned themselves a fearsome live reputation famous for its high energy, mass stage diving and violent pits. Reeling off old school classics from their back catalogue they have become a must-see act that has seen the band sign with K2 live agency (Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax).
With a new album already recorded their time to reign has come again.

Joining the ranks at Sliptrick Records this week is the Bolivian Heavy / Power Metal project The Inferate.
Daniel Carbajal started his musical project of rock and metal in 2007 with the name Inferate. Over the next few years he wrote songs and demos which ended in the release of an EP in 2014. The year 2018 has seen him return to his old name (but now with the article) The Inferate.
The Inferate is now starting the production of it’s new music oriented toward rock and metal. In support of this, he uses online communication tools for music creation based in Bolivia. Since his first productions in 2007, a rich experience has been accumulated that now allows him to have the knowledge necessary to write and produce songs with musicians and producers from any part of the world, transcending the barriers of distance and language. Sharing and learning with musicians of different cultures, allows The Inferate to offer songs with the spirit of rock and metal and with the quality that is characteristic of these musical genres. Primary influences of the current sound could be said to be bands such as Helloween and Gamma Ray with a focus on rock, power metal and heavy metal.
On June 14th 2019, The Inferate will release the single Believe, which is a preview of the next EP due out later in the year via Sliptrick Records.
