UK progressive sludge band Sail offers up their new single "Starve," a grotesque ode to the anxieties of modern life. Fans of Torche, Red Fang and Baroness will eat up what this Southwestern UK band is dishing out.
Sail released their debut album Slumbersong in March 2017 on Hibernacula Records, receiving excellent reviews including a 4K Kerrang review, coverage in Terrorizer, and play on Radio Fenriz. Later that year, they toured England and Scotland with Cybernetic Witch Cult. This was followed by more performances with Ohhms, Alunah, and Desert Storm, plus tours with Morag Tong and Morass of Molasses. The band has been writing new material since then and also runs their own shows as Sub Terra Promotions.
In regard to their new single, the band says:-
"'Starve' is, put simply, a discussion about facing anxieties in life but with the backing of a big riff. It's fairly thematically similar to our debut release -- our lyrics are very often introspective and hugely personal to us all in differing ways -- but despite this common ground the song feels like a step in a more solid, focused direction."
In regards to their sound, the band commented:-
"We've recently started working in partnership with Zilla cabs, who now provide all our guitar and bass cabs. They've been amazing to work with and they've helped up define our guitar sound for the single."
Greek Prog / Power metallers Lightfold have released a brand new lyric video for the song "The Battle", taken from the band's latest release "Deathwalkers" which still continues to receive rave reviews from around the world!
Mister Savvas Betinis from Acid Death on the aggressive growls. The incredible video was made by HK Visual Creations and Haris Kountouris
Enjoy the NEW lyric video here: https://youtu.be/lJsSaTilYL4
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!!

Album Pre-Order: http://bit.ly/Windows_CD
Arising from the thriving music scene of Stockholm, Sweden, Silent Call trace their lineage to the year 1990, when founding members Daniel Ekholm and Patrik Törnblom met through a common friend. Realizing their shared passion and strong melodic influence, they formed what became the chief driving force and songwriting effort behind Silent Call's sound, which can be compared to many of the leading bands in today's' genre.
In 2006, Silent Call was joined by progressive metal drummer powerhouse Mikael Kvist (Elsesphere, Fate), and the line-up was soon expanded with the acquisition of bassist Tobbe Moen (Red Fun, OZ, Creozoth). The singer's slot was finally filled in September of 2006 with the addition of ex-Seventh Wonder and Elsesphere vocalist Andi Kravljaca. After the completion of the line-up, things happened very quickly for Silent Call. The band's debut 4-track demo "Divided," released in January of 2007, showcased the band's new direction and line-up and was promptly picked up by UK label Escape Music.
Silent Call's debut album, "Creations From A Chosen Path", was released during August 2008, featuring 13 tracks of powerful melodic metal, with guest appearances by the likes of Göran Edman (Yngwie Malmsteen, Brazen Abbot) on vocals and Daniel Flores (Mind's Eye, Murder of My Sweet) on drums. The album was mixed and mastered at JM Studios by famed studio man Martin Kronlund (Hammerfall). Received extremely well by the press, "Creations From A Chosen Path" has been hailed as one of the best metal albums of 2008 by several European magazines.
During the winter of 2009, Silent Call began recording their follow-up album, "Greed". Once again mixed and mastered by Martin Kronlund, and this time featuring artwork by Progart genius Mattias Noren, the 11 tracks on "Greed" explore heavier and more complex musical ground, showcasing Silent Call at their thus far most progressive, and most aggressive release.
Silent Call had to pull off something special if they were to continue on the lines of surpassing their debut and "Greed" had done just that. Their follow-up 2014 release "Truth's Redemption" was a fine example of what fantastic progressive metal should actually sound like! With songs like "Every Day", "All That Might Be" and "When the Angels Call Your Name", Silent Call effortlessly produced top class music with all the hallmarks of being overnight sensations. Crisp guitar work, a plethora of keyboards and great lead vocals were all to be found on the album.
In late 2014, new vocalist Göran Nyström (ex Twinspirits) joined the band. Prior to that Silent Call consisted of Göran Nyström on vocals, Daniel Ekholm on guitars, Patrik Törnblom on keyboards, Tobbe Moen on bass and Mikael Kvist on drums. The band started writing songs for a new album in 2015 and also went on a European tour together with Sweden's Tad Morose.
"Windows", the newest album from Silent Call, will be released in the fall of 2019. Production on Silent Call's fourth album, "Windows" was completed in late 2016 and was mixed and mastered by Rich Hinks (Annihilator). "Windows" will be the last album of their career and is due out on October 11, 2019 via Rockshots Records.

The guitarist, Cornelius adds:-
“Dymbur are excited to announce the release of their first single & music video ‘Capital Vices’ from their upcoming concept debut-album.”
“This song speaks about the greatest sins of mankind i.e. The Seven Deadly Sins - Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath, Vanity, Greed and Sloth. As much as metal prefers to be about condemning the wicked ways of the world and often, being introspective of our worse fears, there is also a lesson about human nature and its negativity. This is something that we want to tell you about through this new song.”
This song has been recorded by Cornelius Kharsyntiew, at Legato Recording Studios in Shillong and mixed and mastered by Brandon Scurlark at Eltar Studios in North Carolina (USA). The Music Video of the same was shot & edited by Embor Sayo of Fishy Photography, Shillong.

Norwegian Prog Metallers Sarpedon set release date for their new album "Before The Nightingale Sings"
Norwegian progressive metal band, Sarpedon, announces the release of their second new album "Before The Nightingale Sings", a follow up of the 2014 debut "Anomic Nation".
The album is set to be released on September 27th!
Drummer Carl Engstrøm stated:-
"We’re very happy to announce the release of our second album "Before The Nightingale Sings". It has been a long and difficult process to get this album finished but finally the day has come for its release and we could not be happier and proud about the result".
Vocalist Göran Nyström stated:-
"In May 2016 I was contacted by Torgeir (ex guitar player) regarding vocals on the new Sarpedon album. I listened to their previous album and made a rough demo of the song "Anomic Nation". It worked for both me and the band and in November 2016 I flew to Oslo to record vocals for the new album. The studio was located a couple of miles outside of Oslo and it had some pretty good gear. It was three hectic days in the studio with frozen pizza and singing. It's the heaviest album I've ever recorded and I can't wait for you to listen to it!"
The album was recorded at Toproom and Hemstad studios, mixed by Børge Finstad and Matias Aaveren at Toproom studios and mastered by Kjetil Ottersen at Vektor Facilities studios. The album cover was done by the French designer Paul "Paulusk" Gonzalvez.
Portuguese Prog Metallers Blame Zeus sign with Rockshots Records for third album "Seethe" out November 8th
Rockshots Records is proud to announce their latest signing of Portuguese progressive metallers Blame Zeus for the release of their third full length "SEETHE" on November 8, 2019.
With influences that range from blues to metal, their music can be described as an intense and heavy rock, but also with intimate and nostalgic ballads. Their line up features Sandra Oliveira, Tiago Lascasas, Paulo Silva, Celso Oliveira, and Ricardo Silveira.
Since forming in 2010, the band's two previous releases "Identity' (2014) (Raising Legends Records) and "Theory of Perception" (2017) have garnered much praise in their home country along with securing opening slots with bands Lacuna Coil, Moonspell, Cradle of Filth, Cellar Darling, R.A.M.P. among many others established acts. In 2018, they were invited to perform at Vagos Metal Fest, one of Portugal's biggest heavy festivals.
The band adds:-
"Our new upcoming album will still possess BZ's genome, but it will bring some fresh features you've never seen in our work. It will be heavier, darker, more progressive, and it will make the fans submerge in a turmoil of strong feelings. Fans will certainly feel our same old vibe in the songs, but recognize it has been upgraded, with a more modern sound. We worked freely, with no strings attached, using new elements, making everything sound rhythmically, harmonically and melodically intertwined. We have certainly not made things easier to ourselves, and had to evolve technically to be able to play and sing these new songs."
and vocalist Sandra Oliveira also adds:
"'Seethe' could very well be considered a conceptual album because the main theme of the songs is unexpressed anger, silent pain transformed into poetry. Its contradictory nature is the liberation of the soul, it's letting go of that lump on your throat when you have something to say. Each song speaks of a particular situation where the silence and the numbness become a vehicle for action and freedom or even utmost despair."
"Seethe" is available for pre-order here.

Christian power / prog metal band S91 presents the new video "Godfrey of Bouillon" featuring singer Egidio Casati from Boarders. The song is taken from the latest album "Along The Sacred Path", released by Rockshots Records in Spring 2019.
"Along The Sacred Path" album traces the history of Christianity through the life of some key figures. One of them is Godfrey Of Bouillon, first ruler of the first Crusader State. He is also the main character of Torquato Tasso's "Gerusalemme liberata", a poetic character of extraordinarily evocative force. Moved by sincere faith, he is a humble hero who refuses the title of King.
"Along The Sacred Path" Album is available at Rockshots Store:
SPOTIFY - https://spoti.fi/2YnKUKR
Watch the video above.
S91’s style is in the wake of a coordinated progressive-metal with symphonic influences, led by the warm and strong voice of Maria Londino standing above.
The band explains their sophomore full length:
"'Along The Sacred Path' is a concept album that traces the history of Christianity, continuing the narrative from "Behold The Mankind". The story is told through the life of some key figures that are not always considered positive by everyone. The main goal is to show how the Gospel message has spread in its original form, becoming the fabric of modern Western society. Scrolling through the track listing, you will see that all the characters are of European origin. This album is also a tribute to the great nation of EUROPE. As proud citizens, we feel it is a nation that today, more than ever, needs to recognize and rediscover its founding values if it wants to survive in these dark times and continue to be a beacon of civilization for the whole world.
