Italian Symphonic Power Metallers Ravenword has unleashed “No More,” first single from their one-time studio album, Transcendence, out January 31 via Rockshots Records.
Vocalist Chiara Tricarico comments about the song: “This song is a classical power metal track with a beautiful piano part and a super-fast solo.” The track features Davide Lovecchio as special guest on the lead guitar.
“No More” is available as digital single at all major online stores, paired with an official audio track on YouTube.
Transcendence is now available for pre-order at the Rockshots Records' official store at http://bit.ly/Ravenword_CD.
Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s novel The Raven, the Milan, Italy, based band was originally formed in 2007 by keyboardist and composer Davide Scuteri (Choirs Of Veritas). After several years of activity, which included a self-titled demo, the band went on a brief hiatus, re-grouping in 2016 when singer Chiara Tricarico (Sound Storm, Moonlight Haze), drummer Michele Olmi (Chronosfear, Skeleeton) and bass/guitar player Cesare Ferrari (Choirs Of Veritas) joined the band, in order to create a one-time studio album that embodies the whole history of the band.
With Transcendence, RAVENWORD captures the romantic and decadent poetic themes typical of Edgar Allan Poe’s period, combined with an equally decadent symphonic metal sound. In line with RAVENWORD’s ode to poetry, the title Transcendence was chosen to symbolize the idea of always going beyond one’s perception of reality and seeking deeper meanings.

The band comments:-
"We are honoured to have signed with one of the world's leading record labels, Nuclear Blast Records! The excitement level of Blood Eagle finally finding the right home to release new material, is higher for us than we can ever express. There are people who want to hear this band, as was evident in the reaction to our performances on multiple European festivals in the last couple of years. We are excited and grateful to be working with the guys at Nuclear Blast, as they strongly will help facilitate and take the Eagle to the next level.
On a musical note, we took all our inspirations from NAPALM DEATH, BOLT THROWER, MORBID ANGEL and a tad (like 2%) of MASTODON and threw them into the musical cooking pot. The result is our new release, 'To Ride In Blood & Bathe In Greed' which was released as three EP's in September, October and November. Out on Nuclear Blast Records."
More on 'To Ride In Blood & Bathe In Greed':
Blood Eagle is a death metal band comprised of former members of VOLBEAT, MNEMIC, HATESPHERE, ILLDISPOSED and RAUNCHY, founded by two ex-guitarists, Franz Hellboss and Mircea Gabriel Eftemie (formerly of VOLBEAT and MNEMIC). After playing for years in their own respective bands, the two guitarists decided to team up and consolidate their passion for punk, grind and death metal alongside their best friends and touring partners. The band surfaced and raised traction for the very first time in 2013, by releasing a 3-song EP for free download, recorded at the Antfarm Studios with Tue Madsen (MESHUGGAH, BEHEMOTH, THE HAUNTED) at the helm. Playing select shows and festival appearances, the band kept writing material but never released it to the masses, until five years later.
So what do you get when you throw NAPALM DEATH, BOLT THROWER, MORBID ANGEL and a dash of MASTODON into a musical cooking pot? The answer is; BLOOD EAGLE. Glorified by the metal media as a Danish "supergroup" consisting of metal veterans, according to the band there is nothing super about it, other than their good friendship and love for old school death metal. BLOOD EAGLE is an unstoppable force, launching their long-awaited debut album in three parts: 'To Ride In Blood & Bathe In Greed' I, II, III via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.

Southwest Sydney metalcore five-piece Harroway have blasted on the scene and teamed up with masters of their craft at Graphics Nature Audio (The Amity Affliction, Knocked Loose, Counterparts, Thy Art Is Murder) with their debut single "Shine" flaunting intricate guitar work, huge heavy vocals and catchy cleans.
The track itself was recorded in Belleville, New Jersey at legendary Graphics Nature Audio with production and engineering by Sonny Truelove with the mix and master by Will Putney. "Shine" explores the light and shade up against the brutal raw vocals that form the backbone of the track with melodic instrumentation that weaves its way throughout.
The single is essentially a reminder for vocalist Matt Banks and to listeners not to give up on passions and aspirations no matter how hard life gets. Banks explains the writing process in saying that:-
"Over the course of the writing process riffs and structures changed, and so did my mood, so the verse became an outlet for the dark personal things I was dealing with at the time - which was basically feelings of not being good enough."
"Keeping the original intentions for the song in mind, I reflected back on all the positive words of encouragement I had received over the years while trying to follow my dreams which I summed up into the lyrics: ‘But I remember something you said, never forget the reason your heart beats in your chest. Keep the fire inside. We’re all born to shine’.
The single comes accompanied with a music video directed and conceptualised by music cinematography legend Third Eye Visuals (Parkway Drive, Gravemind, In Hearts Wake). The film features the band playing through their single within a colourful kaleidoscope that transitions along with the music, creating for a captivating watch and an addictive listen.
Harroway consists of former members of Maybe I’ll Live Forever, Isotopes and Like Royals with Matt Banks on vocals, Marcus Cunich on guitar and vocals, Alex Maybury on guitar, Jordan Sheriff on bass and Jesse Gallagher on drums. The band has arrived just in time to take their place among Australia's best and heaviest, representing Australia's thriving and ever-growing heavy music scene.

New York based industrial metal duo Hanzel und Gretyl return with their glorious ninth album,
‘Hexennacht’, a bestial feast of mechanised blast beats, ear-splitting guitars and shrieks from the very bowels of hell! It sees Kaizer Von Loopy and Vas Kallas continue their dark descent into the forest of an imagined Bavarian Halloween, blending black metal themes and aesthetics with industrial strength power. Surrender to the dark side of the galactic forest and enjoy the evil madness of ‘Hexennacht’ as HuG beseech you to join them in their glorious damnation from an otherworldly vortex.
Formed in New York in 1993, Hanzel und Gretyl have released eight previous albums and toured with Marilyn Manson, Prong, Slipknot, Rammstein, Ministry and Cradle Of Filth.
The band began their association with Metropolis Records in 2003 when the label issued the third
HuG album, ‘Über Alles’, which was described as a 'futuristic Wagnerian rock opera' and received
great reviews from publications as diverse as Kerrang! (UK) and The Village Voice (US). Follow-up
‘Scheissmessiah’ was memorably reviewed as ‘Handel’s Messiah from Hell’, while death and black
metal elements were incorporated into HuG’s sound on 2008 concept record ’2012: Zwanzig Zwölf’.
‘Born To Be Heiled’ (2012) was an eclectic blend of death, black and doom metal, classic rock,
electronic and industrial elements and ‘Black Forest Metal’ (2014), employed satanic themes
cross-referenced with forest motifs from the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale. 2018 saw the duo
celebrate their 25th anniversary with the release of ‘Satanik Germanik’.

Belgian post metal alchemists Hamelin premiere their debut EP "Hamelin" via No Clean Singing
The record is set for international release on November 30th, 2019 via Wolves of Hades on LP and on CD by the band.
Recently New Noise Magazine hosted the official premiere of the "Below the Waves" single HERE!
George De Decker is responsible for the EP's stunning artwork, which is available above.
The official video of the EP's first single, "Nadir", was launched on YouTube HERE.
Buried deep in the consciousness of four divergent souls from Mechelen grew a beast enchained by melancholy named Hamelin. Though they are in the process of releasing their first EP, they are in no way new to the scene. With all of them having a background in Belgium’s metal scene and coming from different bands and projects, you might just find yourself impressed by their unique sound and dynamic.
The combined musical backgrounds of their members fell effortlessly into place, pushing a sound that is characterised by a strong atmosphere and melody drifting between melancholy and hope, longing for light as we drift further into the void.
With haunting and calm riffs, cathartic vocals, pounding and yet serene drums and a dynamic composition Hamelin’s debut EP will drag the listener through a sorrowful journey into a maelstrom of blackened and atmospheric metal.
Jason Bond - Guitar
Casper De Decker - Vocals, Keys
Jesse Massant - Bass
Jan Dries - Drums
Watch for new tour updates, and more news on other upcoming Hamelin activities to be posted shortly.
