Greek Death Metal cult Vultur premiere the new track "Postmortem Lividity" via NoCleanSinging.com. The track is the title track to the band's highly anticipated second album, Drowned in Gangrenous Blood, set for international release on October 31st via Memento Mori. Hear Vultur's "Postmortem Lividity" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Spawned from the sick brain cells of several past and current members of other deadly Hellenic entities (Ectoplasma, Resurgency et. al.) back in 2013, Vultur have been exhibiting an unquenchable thirst for sanguine death metal fluids ever since, revealed in all its putrid and vicious glory both in their Vulture's Beak demo (2016) and their Entangled in the Webs of Fear debut album (2018). Theirs is a timeless ilk of bludgeoning death metal that's stuffed with assorted tempos that go from relentless eruptions of savagery to torturous and doomed-out passages replete with morbid harmonies and through mid-paced onslaughts of sheer heaviness, influenced by the likes of Morbid Angel, Gorguts, Monstrosity, Immolation, Brutality, Suffocation, Morpheus Descends, and Incantation.
Salaciously titled Drowned in Gangrenous Blood, Vultur's sophomore strike sees them sticking to that crushing course - and indeed drowning the hapless listener in gangrenous blood! No compromise, no quarter, no progression: Drowned in Gangrenous Blood is 100% undiluted DEATH METAL spawned from the most righteous of eras, the very beginning of the '90s. Even down to its bassy, shit-thick production - courtesy of Haris Vougiantzis, of Embrace Of Thorns fame, who also handles the mixing & mastering here - Vultur's second album reeks of totally thorough authenticity. Its songwriting is creepy, lurking, and most definitely SICK, spewed by diseased minds who LIVE FOR THIS. And it's also further proof that Greece's death metal underground is criminally unsung, but soon shall devour unbelievers...
And what better way to garnish utter sickness than the literally viscous cover art courtesy of Gargoylekelly? Vultur have wasted no time in eclipsing their cult debut album - drink up!

Finnish Industrial Metal / Hell Electro act King Satan is releasing their second full length album "I Want You To Worship Satan' on 22nd of November 2019. They also have released third single and music video from the upcoming album called All Magick Is Chaos Magick.
Check the music video "All Magick Is Chaos Magick": https://youtu.be/cM6a9fLW8v0
Listen to the single:
Vocalist and the director of music video King Aleister Satan comments:
"For ”All Magick Is Chaos Magick” single we wanted to present more occult & mysticism oriented side of our works, and since it had been a while since I had directed a story-based music video I wanted it to be for this song. This said, the same goes with the song itself. I have been asked many times during the King Satan’s existence that ”what is Magick and Chaos Magick for you?” and ”how it is related to the Devil?” which led into the birth of the song, where I answer all this through the orchestration of industrial metal and electronic body music amalgam!"
King Satan is industrial metal band from Tampere, Finland founded in the end of 2015 by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist King Aleister Satan. The band serves eccentric and over-the-top style of harsh extreme metal which is heavily infused with different elements all the way from hard rock and death punk to aggrotech and electro-industrial.
The band gained international attention in the underground metal circles with powerful live performances, controversial music videos and genre-bending debut album "King Fucking Satan"(2017). The band’s outspoken attitude towards occult and spiritual anarchy was served in unique blend of electro-metal which appeared to be not alien to neither satire or philosophical sedition.
With several festival shows and touring in Finland and mainland Europe in 2018 together with series of club shows while supporting or sharing stage with such acts as PAIN, PERTURBATOR, CARPENTER BRUT, HOCICO, TURMION KÄTILÖT and VELVET ACID CHRIST the band promoted their debut album and gained themselves reputation for being distinctive and energetic live band. With full band line-up, babalonian female voice of keyboardist KATHERINE BOSS and powerful demonic vocals of band’s mastermind KING ALEISTER SATAN the band delivers fierce soundscapes full of excessive synths and bass, electro beats, live drums and heavily distorted guitars that can be consumed both in dance floor and in a moshpit, and which most surely bows to nothing and to no one.
KING SATAN’s second full length album titled I WANT YOU TO WORSHIP SATAN (2019) was set to be released in 22nd November 2019 by INVERSE RECORDS and which will be introduced to the world once again by singles with impudent music videos all written and directed by band’s KING ALEISTER SATAN himself.
FUCK THE REST SATAN IS BEST
Venezuelan blackened raw death-doom abomination Cthonica premiere the new track "Act II: The Lantern" at heavily trafficked web-portal InvisibleOranges.com. The track hails from the band's horrific debut album, Typhomanteia: Sacred Triarchy of Spiritual Putrefaction, which will be released internationally on October 25th by Clavis Secretorvm in conspiracy with both Sentient Ruin and Caligari Records: Clavis Secretorvm will handle the European CD, double-vinyl, and digital formats; Sentient Ruin will handle the North American double-vinyl and digital formats, while Caligari Records will handle the cassette tape version. Hear Cthonica's "Act II: The Lantern" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
On Typhomanteia: Sacred Triarchy of Spiritual Putrefaction, Cthonica unravel almost an hour of blood-curling and slithering ritualistic aural terror the hideousness and repulsiveness of which has rarely been seen on this earth. Converging somewhere in the middle between the agonizing and pummelling death-doom of Incantation and Disembowelment and the twisted and serpentine blackened chaos of bands like Beherit, Blasphemy, Portal, and Teitanblood and adding hazy layers of purulent noise and sepulchral dark ambient murk to further disfigure their abhorrent creation, Cthonica have crossed a new threshold in extreme metal horror, setting an entirely new standard of sonic inversion with their raw and decaying sound, and taking the glorification and worship of death and perversion to an entire new realm of conceptual and audial atrocity.
Raw blackened death-doom plague Cthonica began in Caracas, Venezuela, back in 2016 (formed by D.V. on guitars, bass, and drums, and H.K. handling vocals, noise, and electronics, lyrics, and concepts), rising from the ashes of a previous incarnation of the project called Okkvlt. Cthonica is, and likely always will be, a proudly home-recorded project: both for necessity due to the precarious access to resources in the tumultuous Venezuelan society and general lack of most things out there, and for the complete refusal by the core duo behind the project to compromise or embrace standardized and commonly acceptable creation processes. As such, Cthonica's existence will likely always be one of near-complete lack and isolation, a state and condition which has perhaps made certain aspects of their art even more violent, defiant, and abominable. That of Cthonica appears to be an existence of evolved regression, where a state of isolation, lack, and primitivism has evolved aberrantly, and created fertile conditions for the development of deviant and feral art forms. Regarding this aspect of their creation process, the band has stated that "we are a home-made recording project because we are oblivious to so-called professional hi-fi techniques and firmly believe that the approach of basic and primitive resources keeps us on the line of what we want."
Lyrically, musically, and conceptually, Cthonica are focused on expressing the abyss within every human life, not (only) through the classic but overused Nietzschean cliché, but also and mostly as a Tehomic-Typhonian metamorphosis of every man's reason through what they call "spiritual putrefaction," or the progressive human corruption through the guidelines of opprobrious disciplines and their teachings, a concept which has shaped and defined the band’s abhorrent debut album, Typhomanteia: Sacred Triarchy of Spiritual Putrefaction.

Ukrainian modern metal frontrunners Jinjer have returned with a vengeance! Today, Jinjer turns heads with a new music video for the gut-punching anthem “On The Top”. Never failing to deliver an unforgettable hook, “On The Top” slinks along a punishing groove before soaring into melodic passages – just another example of what listeners can expect to be met with on the band’s upcoming full-length album, Macro, out October 25, 2019 via Napalm Records.
“While one is climbing, the rest is falling down in the name of profit – Is it lonely on the top?”
Jinjer:- says about “On The Top”:
“Have you ever felt like a rat in a rat race? It seems like the world is spinning faster and faster every single day and everyone is going crazy searching for this thing called success. However, we tend to forget that real happiness has nothing to do with it- not a career, achievements, money etc. Is it really worth climbing up the ladder just to be ON to the TOP if there is nothing or no one there for you in the end? It's OK to want to be the best you can possibly be but just remember that success has its price but it's up to you to decide how much you are willing to pay for it. It’s your choice to make but your burden to bare …”
Watch “On The Top” HERE
In less than 10 years, the four-piece progressive groove metal wrecking machine known as Jinjer have carved their very own place in the heavy metal landscape and are poised to go even further in 2019 and beyond. Hailing from Donetsk, this Ukrainian musical oddity formed in 2009 but consider the official start of the band with the addition of the incredible vocalist and femme fatale, Tatiana Shmailyuk, in 2010. Since then, Jinjer have been nominated and won the Best Ukrainian Metal Act award for Best Ukrainian Metal Band multiple times.
This year’s Micro EP was received with open arms by fans and critics alike, climbed to the top of many industry charts and radio station lists worldwide and once again showcased the musical depth and songwriting talent of the band, as well as Tatiana's amazing vocal range. The band will build upon these successes with Macro.

Norwegian Black Metal veterans Crest Of Darkness have revealed a track from their upcoming ninth full-length album "The God Of Flesh", which is set for release on My Kingdom Music on the 6th December.
Crest Of Darkness founder Ingar Amlien has this to say about the track, which is titled "The Child With No Head":
"Here we are, yet another chapter written in the book of Crest Of Darkness, with a track that is probably one of the most violent and extreme we have ever written during our career. Turn up the f***ing volume and you'll be overwhelmed by its sense of loss and total lack of hope."
"The Child With No Head" can be heard at https://youtu.be/h48655yPThU
Although still filled with Crest Of Darkness' trademark Satanic themes "The God Of Flesh" marks a change to the feel, variety and depth of the music, showing the band's line-up of Amlien (Bass / Vocals), Rebo (Rhythm / Lead Guitars), and Berhard (Drums), to be as much at home with more progressive and melodic elements, as they are the with the aggressive and dark brutal side, for which they are known.
Amlien recently remarked that "The God Of Flesh", which will be the band's ninth full-length album, was "probably the darkest and most brutal album we've ever made! It's also the most honest work ever from my perspective"
With all lyrics by Amlien and music by Amlien, Rebo and Bernhard, except for the track "Forgotten" where Amlien joins forces with the album's session keyboardist Kristian Wentzel,
Seeking an outlet for his passion for sonic brutality and his interest in Vampirism and Satanic ideology, on which he is an acknowledged expert, Amlien formed Crest Of Darkness in the mid nineties and considers today's line-up to be the strongest in the band's history, as he explains:
"During the whole production of the album I was thinking that now, more than ever before, I wanted to make an album my way! And, as a result, we haven't made any compromises whatsoever, in any direction. And I'm very fortunate to be able to say that I was not alone during the whole process. With the help of my fantastic band mates Rebo and Bernhard, it became possible to bring my darkest fantasies and visions to life through "The God of Flesh"
"The God of Flesh" will be available in Digital, Digipak CD, Deluxe CD Box, and Vinyl formats, and is now available to pre-order at http://smarturl.it/CODFLESH
Crest Of Darkness will be live at Good Omens in Trondheim, Norway, on the 12th October

Australian death metal war-masters Ignivomous premiere the new track "Hieroglossia" through MetalBite.com. The track hails from the band's long-awaited third album, Hieroglossia, set for international release on November 15th via Nuclear War Now! Productions. Hear Ignivomous' "Hieroglossia" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Seven long years after the release of their sophomore album, Contragenesis, Ignivomous return with their third full-length, Hieroglossia, unveiling eight tracks of organic, primal death metal — the kind the band has become synonymous with in its 13-year existence within the death metal underground.
Borne out of the members' desire to see a resurgence of a heavier, more dissonant style of death metal, Ignivomous were among the first wave of bands to reignite interest in the genre in the first decade of this century. Hieroglossia preserves the core membership of the band present throughout its tenure — Sean Hinds (guitar), Chris Broadway (drums), and Jael Edwards (vocals) — and presents the recording debut of Lewis Fischer on guitar (Altars) and Chris Jordon (Inverloch, Eskhaton) on bass, both of whom have cemented the band’s live assault for the previous few years in a campaign of high-profile shows in their native Australia. This lineup in its current form has secured and built upon the band’s unrelentingly legacy, oozing raw, sinister death metal pushed a step further into the void, creating an album which synthesizes the band's influences with a definitive and individual vision. While projecting a murky and atmospheric take on the death metal template, Heiroglossia avoids sacrificing the primacy of the riff for reverb-drenched formlessness or songwriting in favour of dissonance for its own sake.
Thematically, Heiroglossia continues Ignivomous’ investigation into topics of Philosophical pessimism, influenced by the works of Thomas Ligotti and E.M. Cioran, and Gnostic concepts of the fallen and hostile nature of the material world, presented throughout with a literary sensibility which should be accustomed to those familiar with their previous output.
