Veteran Spanish Death Metallers Obscure announce new release details; listen to the first advance single
Legendary Spanish death metallers Obscure have just finished the recording process of their long-awaited debut album, 30 years after their formation, and now they have revealed the cover art, tracklist and the first advance single of what will be known as "Darkness Must Prevail", which will be released through Xtreem Music in November 5th in CD format and 12" LP.
Listen to the single "Curse of My Race" in the following links:
Obscure is one of the first death metal bands that emerged on the Spanish scene back in 1988 and "Darkness Must Prevail" means the band's return to the label that, then under the name of Repulse Records, released its second demo "Curse the Course" recorded in December 1990 and released in January 1991. In 2016, Xtreem Music released a CD entitled "Back to Skull", which included the band's three demos. This new album keeps 4 of the 5 original members (except the vocalist) and has been mixed and mastered at Unisound Studios by Dan Swanö, keeping the style that the band practised before their split in 1994 intact; heavy and dark death metal with strong Nordic reminiscences. Cover art has been done by artist Remy Cooper from Headplit Design.
Spanish melodic death metallers In Thousand Lakes have released a lyric-video for the track "Murder Castle", the second single to be extracted from their upcoming EP "Evolution", to be released
on September 25th 2019 via Xtreem Music.

This new album has been recorded at Chromaticity Studios (Vhäldemar, Valkyria, Rise To Fall...) and in it we find quite varied compositions where the band's influences range from European melodic death metal to heavy, thrash and progressive metal.

"Erasing the Past" is the band's return to the label that, then under the name of Repulse Records, released their debut EP "Caves of Mind" in 1994.

Fighter Records is proud to announce the signing of Ankhara, one of the most legendary Spanish Heavy Metal bands from he 90's, for the international release of their acclaimed 4th album "Sinergia", originally released for the Spanish market, and which will now be released with 3 bonus on CD and also limited vinyl version on 12 "LP.
Ankhara returned after fourteen years of recording silence presenting her 4th studio album "Sinergia". In this new album, the guys from Madrid recover the essence of their first two works in favour of an authentic and revamped sound, which tastes to Power and Hard Rock, but above all, Heavy Metal. A raw and straight album that some media have already stated to be "their most aggressive work to date"; in which the voice of Pacho Brea is reminiscent of "Rob Halford or Ripper Owens"; and with the guitar solos of Cecilio and Alberto being described simply as "epic". The power of the double bass drum by Matt de Vallejo and the elegance of Sergio's bass is also said to complete "a rounded disc".
"Sinergia" has been recorded by a lineup close to the original, in which Matt de Vallejo (037 Leo, Zero3iete) replaces Jesús Alcalde. Guitars and vocals have been recorded at José Rubio's Meiga Sound Studios (José Andrëa and Uróboros, ex-Warcry); drums at Andy C.'s Cadillac Blood (Lords of Black, ex-Saratoga, ex-Dark Moor) and the bass at Mojo Road. The mixing and mastering have been made at Cube Madrid by Alberto Seara (Sôber, Mägo de Oz) and the cover is the work of Fernando 'Nanderas'.
International release date for Ankhara's "Sinergia" will be 18th of September 2019 through Fighter Records on CD & 12"LP formats.

Spanish Melodic Death Metallers SynlakrosS have published their new video 'Fatal Frame' back on May 30th. This single is the second of their latest work 'Malice Murder', which was released on 18th October 18, 2018.
The band already announced that this new work has damned souls that can’t escape from hell as inspiration, and they have captured this essence in this song and video, which is a descent into hell. This is the darkest work of SynlakrosS so far. The song hasa frantic rhythm and a catchy melody that tells us the story and the pain of a tormented soul, a young girl caught in terror who seeks her brother to escape with him, but it is impossible, they are in hell.
An explosive theme, with strong rhythms, with Melodic Death Metal base but with the characteristic personal touch of the band.
The video was made by Sergio Mangas Murcia and Bárbara Navarro Soler, the team that made their video 'Colony'; has gathered more than a million and a half views, being the most watched video of 2018 from a Spanish Metal band.
They have depicted the atmosphere of the theme through very careful photography, as well as
costumes and props that come to life thanks to a good acting cast.
Link to the video: https://youtu.be/5LI3DmJoXUU
The audio has been produced and edited by Facundo Novo (Novo Estudios), who produced the third album of the band.
