Spanish technical death metal masters Wormed are now releasing the brand new track and details of their upcoming EP 'Metaportal'. The EP is set for worldwide release on July 19, 2019. The new sci-fi offering 'Remote Void' is now streaming via the official Season of Mist Youtube Channel at the link below which can be freely spread.

Wormed commented on the track:
"Entering the Metaportal. A nano technological war has been unleashed in the void to defeat the last sower of human life, Krighsu. In a desperate attempt to help a galactic system in danger, Krighsu must access the vast Metaportal, what he doesn't know yet is the reason for its existence."
Out of respect for drummer G-Calero, who recently passed away, the photo above is the latest of the band.
Space – the final frontier. Yet, when Wormed reach out into the void, the results sounds far more like a dark space opera inhabited by bizarre aliens, genetically and technically evolved meta-humans struggling for power and survival in galactic empires. Now, the nano-technological war has been unleashed in the void to defeat the last sower of human life, Krighsu!
Odd-time signatures, avalanches of breaks and complex rhythmical as well as melodic patterns will excite every aficionado of extreme technicality, while growls down-tuned strings and double-bass assaults will more than satisfy extreme metal connoisseurs. While being outstandingly skilled musicians Wormed are avoiding any self-indulgent show of prowess for its own sake. Instead the five-piece from Madrid clearly lays its emphasis on creating atmospheric songs, which develop and grow along the underlying story.
Originating from Spain's capital Madrid in 1998, Wormed immediately made an impact in the death metal scene with the release of their 'Floating Cadaver in the Monochrome' MCD (1999). Following a promo CD under the title 'Voxel Mitosis' (2001), the first studio album 'Planisphaerium' received high acclaim by critics and fans alike in 2003. In the wake of their debut full-length, the Spanish received invitations to international festival shows and touring around the globe. Wormed performed in Japan alongside Goratory and Vomit Remnants and afterwards hit Europe with Malignancy and Despondency.
A creative hiatus, partly due to line-up changes and filled with re-issues of their previous released as well as the single 'Quasineutrality' (2010) finally ended, when their sophomore album 'Exodromos' came out in 2013. On their third full-length 'Krighsu' (2016), the fast-rising Spanish Sci-Fi tech death prodigies are telling a dystopian cosmic story with lyrics and music joined into an overarching concept. Its intense brutality, dissonant dynamic riffing, and tremendous heaviness combined with an amazing futuristic concept, which introduced the character Krighsu – last human in the cosmos, harvested top reviews and saw Wormed headlining in the US and co-headlining in Europe.
Now Wormed are ready to explore the cosmos even further by entering the 'Metaportal', while climbing to even more mind-blowing musical heights. Prepare to experience the universe in the light and sound of a new aeon dawning!
Finnish Technical Death metal act De Lirium’s Order released their fourth album Singularity on April 26, 2019 via Inverse Records. Ayatollah is the third single of Singularity, and comes accompanied with a music video.
Watch the music video here: https://youtu.be/6y7MFmAI2RM
De Lirium’s Order was formed in 1998 by guitarist Juha Kupiainen and today, it is one of the most praised groups in technical death metal. Drawing inspiration also from thrash and progressive metal, De Lirium’s Order is known for their creative, experimental guitar riffs, solos and drum patterns. The current line-up consists of musicians from the acts like Abbath, Omnium Gatherum and Raskasta Joulua. The band’s previous album release Veniversum (2012) got a much awaited continuum with Singularity which opened new musical pathways for the band through the album’s futuristic, ambitious concept.
Guitarist Juha Kupiainen comments on Ayatollah:-
“While the rise of The Monolith is awaiting behind the door, the human race is battling with cultural clash between Middle-East and West. Scarcity of resources, changing environment and increasing inequality among others limit their focus. A man who has lost his family to a drone strike seeks for revenge while the other part has technological superiority. With their short sight and vanity, mankind is hearing the first echoes of their doom.”

Italian for 'venom', 'Veleno' marks Fleshgod Apocalypse’s first record in 3 years, since the release of their critically acclaimed record 'King' (2016). The 'metal part' of 'Veleno' was recorded in Rome, Italy at Bloom Recording Studio and Kick Studio with long-standing collaborator Marco Mastrobuono, while the 'orchestral part' - the ensembles - were tracked at Musica Teclas Studio in Perugia. Fleshgod Apocalypse then took the effort over to Grammy-nominated Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, The Black Dahlia Murder, Epica) at Hansen Studios in Denmark for mixing and mastering. The entire production of 'Veleno' took, according to Paoli, about three months. Artwork for the album was created by Travis Smith (AVENGED SEVENFOLD, OPETH, KATATONIA).
'Veleno' will be available in the following formats:
Californian Prog / Tech-Death trio Inanimate Existence premiere third single "Desert" at The Circle Pit
California-based Progressive / Technical Death Metal trio Inanimate Existence recently announced their upcoming fifth full-length album, 'Clockwork'. The album is set for release on May 10th via The Artisan Era. It is the follow up to the group's highly praised fourth album, Underneath a Melting Sky, which was released in 2017. Active since 2011, the band has yet to slow down in between regular extended touring on a near yearly basis and with four well-received albums released to date already.
Continuing the group's evolution found on 2017's Underneath a Melting Sky, Clockwork delves ever deeper into cerebral progressive death metal depths while buoyed by the group's established penchant for merciless full-throttle brutality and frenetic tech-death driven terrain. The stunning cover artwork for Clockwork was created by Justin Abraham (Equipoise, Oubliette, A Loathing Requiem, Aepoch) and the recording was handled by both the band itself and with usual collaborator Zack Ohren (Fallujah, Continuum, Alterbeast) who mixed and mastered Clockwork at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California.
Inanimate Existence partnered with The Circle Pit today to premiere the album's third single, "Desert". Today's premiere of "Desert" doubles as a music video as well.

Francesco Paoli on working with director Giovanni Bucci:-
"I met Giovanni Bucci a couple of years ago, while collaborating on his own band ODDKO. We soon became good friends, so we started talking about having him as director for Fleshgod’s new videos. He is a true visionary, with amazing directing and production skills. He’s been making music videos for bands like Korn, and he also has a shining career in the movie industry. We all agreed that he would’ve been the key to a huge step forward for us, visually and artistically, especially on a video like this, which was also extremely complex to produce and shoot. The result is on your screen now, and it's better than any description. Just hit the play button and enjoy."
Agonia Records is pleased to welcome Italy's Hour Of Penance to its roster. The technical, brutal death metal band has signed a record deal with the Polish-based label in November of 2018, after parting ways with Prosthetic Records, via whom the band released three of their last albums, including 2017's "Cast The First Stone". Currently Hour Of Penance is on the final lap of writing songs for the album's as yet untitled successor, set for a 2019 release.
Hour Of Penance commented:-
"We’re really excited to announce that Hour of Penance signed a new deal with Agonia Records. The first fruit of our cooperation, a new album, is coming in 2019. It’s great to be part of a label that has always been focused on quality extreme metal and it’s the right place to spread our music and brutalize the ears of extreme metal fans all over the world with the new songs we’ve composed. We’re working very hard to bring you our finest and best sounding album so far and we cannot wait to start recording. More details will be revealed in the upcoming months, so keep your eyes open".
Hour Of Penance has steadily been making a name for themselves as one of the most intense, talented and impressive death metal bands around, both in the studio and on stage. Pouring heart into death metal and releasing emotions into what they do, they can easily be described as a beast of a performer; they even have a philosophy around it. "Death metal is more than just music", states the band. "It transcends such a limited mortal state of mind. Death metal is the aural expression of humanity’s darkest side, of devastation, sorrow and the harbinger of mankind’s own inhumanity and ultimately its destruction. Death metal is not a trend, a fashion parade or a mean to an end. It is much more than that.
It is a way of life. A life in death". What might sound as a litany, is actually related to one of the Holy Capitals, Vatican City, near which Hour Of Penance was brought to life in 1999. Since its formation, the band released seven studio albums, and performed shows in Europe and North America, with the likes of Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder, Devildriver, Misery Index, Nile and Krisiun. They also went through several line-up changes, that would surely have discouraged less dedicated bands. The present line-up consists of guitarist and longest serving member Giulio Moschini, singer and guitarist Paolo Pieri, bassist Marco Mastrobuono and drummer Davide Billia (Beheaded).
Italian technical death metal veterans are back with a vengeance and premiere today their new video and single «The Last Call».
The video is now playing in our official media partners for this premiere:
Deaf Forever (DE)
Subterraneo Webzine (SP)
Zware Metalen (NL)
Demon Reports (SB)
«The Last Call» deals with the limits overcome by human race on Earth. Humans are the only beings menacing their own habitat and triggering an evident self-destruction process. The unwise use of nuclear plants is just one of the proofs. The Chernobyl and Fukushima disasters are and will ever be out of control. Humanity is at a point of no return. Planet Earth is making the «Last Call».
"The Last Call" is taken from the coming album «1991.Bloodstained» by Italian death metal masters Gory Blister. Full album to be released worldwide on Mighty Music September 28th.
Gory Blister are an old-school death metal band originally inspired by Death and the Kreator / Pestilence tradition. It’s no coincidence they made their debut in 1991.
After their official debut Art Bleeds, the album that got the best attention from the audience was Skymorphosis, providing the band the chance to go on a big European tour, alongside Steve Di Giorgio's Sadus, and Darkane.
In the two albums released in the following years, Graveyard Of Angels and Earth-Sick, the latter is worth mentioning, featuring Karl Sanders from Nile, as a special guest on vocals in 2 songs.
Eventually, The Fifth Fury could have been the band's ultimate album, but the diehard passion for music, and the challenge to push it forward, has motivated the band to write new material, laying the foundations for the new album entitled "1991.Bloodstained". Out through Mighty Music on September 28th.
During the writing process and demoing period of this new effort, the band had the privilege to receive the artistic and impartial consulting from the Godfather of Metal, Jon Zazula (the man who discovered Metallica), with whom the guitarist Raff Sangiorgio got in touch during the promotion of his solo album “Rebirth”.
Listening to the demos, Jon Zazula made his criticism on the work in progress, which was seriously taken into consideration by the band, in order to get the best songwriting ever on this new album.
"1991.Bloodstained" now exists. It’s an album with a self-congratulatory title, because it recalls the birth date of Gory Blister, even if the lyrics, as in the past, deal with a poetic and visionary perceiving of tragedies and disasters caused by the human race on Earth.
Agony Face play schizophrenic and surreal death metal with “golden ratio” structures and harmonization’s based on pitagoric rules, hypnotic melted scales and modern technical-progressive elements. The choice to use non-conventional death metal sounds and plenty influences from other music genres make the work an interesting eclectic evolution of technical death, destroying the origins and then renaming it Surrealistic Death Metal.
The group started to come together back in 2006 and they crystallized in 2007 with the arrival of drum master Alessandro Bassi and the recording of their first demo Surrealistic. In 2011, they released their first album, CXVIII Monolithic Squeakings, recorded in the prestigious 16th Cellar studios of Rome by Stefano Morabito. It was the beginning of a concept destined to never end, which describes an eventful voyage towards the mutation of opposites. Italian progressive from the 70’s, fusion, technical death metal, psychedelic and acoustic melodies were some of the main features of new compositions recorded during the summer of 2012 which culminated in the 2013 release, CLX Stormy Quibblings.
And now the band are ready to continue the story once again, breaking down barriers from their own electric impulses. CXVI Evolving Discharges will be released via Sliptrick Records worldwide to an unsuspecting audience …and the concept lives on!
