Canadian Melodeath outfit Uriel sign with Wormholedeath and announce "Multiverse" album release date
Canadian Melodic Death Metallers Uriel are glad to announce that they have signed a deal with WormHoleDeath for the release of their album "Multiverse", that will be out on 25/10/2019 via Wormholedeath / Goodfellas.
Uriel began as a studio project in 2008. After some time, the band grew to a three piece and began playing live shows. The soundscape evolved in 2009, notably with Serenity in Departure. The evolution continued with the inclusion of powerful female vocals, featuring said vocals in 2012 with the release of From Ashes to Phoenix. Uriel’s sound and song writing process became more axed towards classical influences, which led to the inclusion of a dedicated cellist and violinist. The 2016 album, Remains of Innocence, featured all said elements, fusing the delicacy of classical music with the influence of melodic death metal. Uriel has a unique and established style, distinct from any other. The band continued its musical evolution in 2018. With the assistance of The Grid studios, the band recorded their latest record, Multiverse, due for release this fall .

Toulouse-based Melodic Death Metal unit, Aephanemer, who burst into the heavy music scene in 2014 and just recently inked a worldwide deal with leading rock and metal label Napalm Records, will re-release the band's second studio album on October 25th!
Integrating the elements of Scandinavian melodic death metal, Slavic traditional music and classical symphonics, the French four-piece band has developed a sound that could likely influence a whole new generation of metal. With their 2014 debut EP, Know Thyself, followed by the critically acclaimed full-length, Memento Mori, in 2016, Aephanemer quickly assembled an impressive, loyal fanbase from all over the world – stepping out of one of Europe's best metal secrets to the biggest hopes in the new wave of melodic death metal!
Due in part to their deft musicality, high-octane live performances at prestigious festivals alike Wacken Open Air and a fresh, modern sound, the band quickly gained high praise from both fans and critics alike, but also the well-deserved attention of Napalm Records. Aephanemer could not be more proud to have their latest, sophomore album, titled Prokopton and originally self-released in March 2019, reissued by the label, and for the first time on vinyl, too! To celebrate in perfect style, the band has just premiered a brand new music video to the blistering track “The Sovereign”!
Italy's Melodic Death metal band Extinction has revealed tracklist and preview of the upcoming album The Apocalypse Mark, out October 18th via Revalve Records.
Watch to: https://player.believe.fr/v2/3616401028849
The band in collaboration with Inside Brain Music, are pleased to present their GERMAN & ITALIAN TOUR 2019 supporting the German Rock'n'Metal band Grimgod!
Extinction is a thrash death metal band formed in 1995 in Puglia (Italy) by Massimo Muci (vocals), Danilo Bonuso (guitar), Daniele Greco (guitar), Giuseppe de Benedittis (bass) and Tonio Latino (drums). In November 1996 the band released their demo "Progress Regress" including 5 tracks, recorded at the Pure Rock Studios in Brindisi. Their style is characterized by a balanced mix of death and thrash metal, influenced by bands like Pantera, Sepultura, Metallica, Pestilence, Morbid Angel etc. Subsequent reviews of music magazines are more than positive. Especially Metal Hammer Italy praises their music for the mix of styles and declares them as "Blind Guardian of death metal" referring to the song "Evil's Revenge".
When singer Massimo Muci left the band in 1997, guitarist and vocalist Danilo decided to move to Turin and in consequence of that, the band split up. Seventeen years later in 2014, Danilo reformed the band in Turin with Alice Darkpeace (vocals), Jacopo Farcito (bass) and Alberto Scrivano (drums). The new Extinction debuts at Rocking Universe Metal Fest in September 2014, followed by numerous concerts, with international bands like Necrodeath, Game Over, Materia, Onslaught, Mindwars, Node etc. After Jacopo (bass) had left the band in February 2015, Marco Vicenza became the new bassist in march of the same year. During this period Luca Maggi accompanied the band on second guitar for a short time. In May 2015 - almost 20 years after the demo Progress Regress - Extinction released a new single called "Conspirators".
In the same year Marco "Hellfire" Campanati joins the band as permanent second guitarist, following Luca, who left the band in December. In April 2016, vocalist Alice Darkpeace appears on the TV show "Italia's Got Talent", demonstrating her growling skills. This event was quite important for the band, in as much as it helped them gain popularity. Besides, growling was never performed on Italian television before. On 30 April 2017, the band released the debut album "The Monarch Slaves" with the German label Unholy Fire Records; after the same titled promo video! The album is available in CD, limited CD digipak, limited tape edition and digital download! In August 2018 the band crosses the national borders playing in Hanover (Germany) and in Serbia at the Rock Village Festival in Banatski Sokolac.
In October 2018, Alice leaves the band due to disagreements and at its place comes Filippo Collaro. Between April and May 2019, the band recorded the new album in Davide Billia's Mk2 Studio (Anthropofagus, Beheaded, etc.). In June 2019 bassist Marco will also be replaced by Lorenzo Catolla, also by Silenti Luna. With the new line-up, in July of the same year, the band signs the contract with the renowned Italian label Revalve Records.

Torchia, the rising name of Finnish melodic death metal, has been working on their second full-length album this year, to be released in spring 2020. The first single from the upcoming album bears title "Moon, Rise!" and is a proper glimpse of band’s new material. The ambitious music video for the opening single was made together with Obliviart Productions.
Watch the music video: https://youtu.be/raRFpb5l5Po
Although Torchuia has spent most of their time this year in the studio, many big things has happened meanwhile. Early this year, the band signed a management and booking agreement with Heavy Metal Heart Agency. Last August the band performed at the Dark River Festival in Kotka, and in October the band will perform at the Heavy Metal Heart Festival in Helsinki alongside Equilibrium (DE).
Edward Torchia the frontman and singer comments:-
”The oppressive main guitar riff of Moon, Rise! always gave me a vision of a person running away from something, so we wanted to have a pursuit on the music video. It was obvious who’d be hunting down the Moon Child and we were honoured to have our friends from Black Royal play the role of the evildoers. The witch was played by Kaisa Riitamaa, sister of our guitarist and songwriter Ville Riitamaa. We are ever grateful for their haunting performances!”
Torchia's debut album "Of Curses And Grief" (2017) received lots of praising feedback from critics both in Finland and abroad. The album was also ranked by Inferno Magazine as the seventh best domestic release in 2017.
There's plenty to look forward to with the new album, as the album's backing team includes such hard-core professionals as producer Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Ensiferum, Sentenced), and Ted Jensen, an American mastering mogul who’s worked with such huge bands as Metallica, Behemoth and Kreator.

Furthermore, Gone In April's new album, 'Shards Of Light', is now released.
Stated the band:
"Double release day! In addition to our new album, Shards of Light, we are stocked to release our new music video, Empire of Loss! While hunting for the perfect venue where to film our next video, we found a gorgeous church in ruins in Detroit. The holes in the ceiling somehow made us think of how the human memory sometimes looses pieces too. Amidst the desolation, shards of light were entering the church. Amidst the destruction, there was still light to be found."
