Aether Void is an Italian heavy metal band formed in Modena (IT) on November 2017 from the ashes of No Way Out, which split up after releasing an EP and a Single. Three of the former members, Alberto Lugari (Drums), Davide Brusini (Bass) and Erik Marzocchini (Guitar) decided to continue playing and composing together, so they built up a new musical project. The line up was completed some months later, when two new members joined the group: Salvatore Thore De Matteo, vocals (ex Savior From Anger and ex Gorgeous) and Nicola Bondioli, lead guitar (ex Demolition Saint and Blood Of Seklusion). The new line up soon began composing and recording new stuff under the name Aether Void. The sound of the new songs was more powerful and aggressive, with influences from both classic and modern heavy metal (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Iced Earth). In October 2018 Aether Void completed the recording of their first studio album Curse Of Life at Art Distillery Studios in Modena. The album will be released in early 2019 by Revalve Records.

This song is toward the end of the story, where the demon and the reaper fight for the hero's soul! "Now everything is clear. The two entities fight for Martin's soul which waits for the final outcome without intervening. Demon and reaper. The energies that collide are beyond any human imagination and the energy that is released is almost infinite!" This one is best enjoyed LOUD!!

Moldovan Modern Metallers Infected Rain reveal full album details + premiere haunting new lyric video
Moldova may not be the most notable hot-spot for rising metal talent to date, but that will surely change with extreme metal sensation Infected Rain. Fierce screams and growls, heavy as hell riffs and pounding beats combined with some ingenious samples make Infected Rain’s style an energetic blend of the best modern metal styles the heavy music scene currently has to offer. Their fourth studio album, Endorphin, will be released on October 18, 2019 via powerhouse label Napalm Records.
Today, the band fronted by extraordinary vocalist Lena, is sharing their hotly anticipated album details, as well as a brand new lyric video for the track Storm!
Infected Rain had this to say about 'Storm':-
“Storm is very different from what we did before. It is an insanely emotional song with really soft melody to it. This song is about the continuous search. It is about the painful path towards the perfect harmony. Harmony between the world and people, between nature and humans, and most importantly, the harmony between two souls. Two lost souls that are trying to find one another.”

Earlier this summer, the band premiered a single for the highly acclaimed track Lure. Dive into Infected Rain's massive wall of sounds and listen HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKPYk5b1dyQ
An impressive music video for the album opening song, The Earth Mantra, has been released HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA0UBIbS5L8
“We are extremely happy to present our fourth album “Endorphin”, which is very important to us in many ways,“ Infected Rain continues. “Although it is our fourth album, it is the first one that is being released with Napalm Records and we cannot be grateful enough for their professionalism, support and guidance during the creation of this album".
"The result of hard work and many sleepless nights, “Endorphin” has become not only a music album, but a true confession box in which we poured all of our deepest feelings and emotions. The cover of the album, being seemingly dark, reflects our eternal love for music and the stage. The black hands symbolize our band as we present the audience with our heart, with the strongest and sincerest emotions that we convey through our songs. The wire wrapped around the hands and the heart is an almost literal representation of our love for the stage, as we feel connected to it all the time and it plays an indispensable role in our lives.
The name of the album, “Endorphin”, emblematizes how we feel about music, our fans and supporters, just like this hormone induces the feeling of happiness in people, we find ourselves truly happy to perform for our audience and we want to share this feeling of euphoria with each and every one of them.
We are absolutely grateful to all the people who support us, for their love and constant encouragement is a proof that what we do is worth doing. Unlike many other bands nowadays, we regard our music not as a marketable product, but as a way of doing what we love and sharing it with all the people who are willing to become part of our world. We would never have been able to be where we are, to be who we are without our faithful fans and we are proud to say that we have always been and will always be true to ourselves and to them.”
Infected Rain was formed in 2008 and made their first appearance on stage in the same year, performing a concert dedicated to Slayer. Countless shows all over Europe and Russia followed, alongside headlining slots at Europe's big festival names, until they gained the well-deserved attention of leading rock and metal label Napalm Records. Infected Rain have released two EPs, several singles and three critically acclaimed, full-length records to date.
Get infected by a band that is far from the overly manufactured metal many of us have grown accustomed to!

August 23rd will see the Dutch alternative metal outfit Nemesea return with their forthcoming studio album, White Flag, on Napalm Records. Combining finest rock licks with modern metal riffs and electronica to stir up a dark and strangely addictive brew – Nemesea have fine-tuned the musical combination to perfection on their fifth album. The riff and groove section behind Sanne Mieloos outstanding vocals, delivers several sure-fire hits up its sleeve and it's impossible to not be enthralled by the all-encompassing balance between driving rock and soothing ballads. White Flag offers intense and soulful alternative rock complete with a subtle breath of goth and loudly demands the attention the band undoubtedly deserves. This album is an addictive gem, that not only belongs in every well-sorted rock record collection, but that reveals its many-splendored colours more and more each time you press play!
Nemesea are now sharing their lyric video for the hard-hitting track 'Fools Gold'! Watch the band's new clip HERE!
