NIGHTBRINGER comment: "With Terra Damnata we have tread even deeper into the labyrinth of certain esoteric traditions and sacred mythos, closer to the heart of the living darkness that destroys all and liberates but few.

Fri, Apr 21 2017: MERRIMACK

Upcoming release: "Omegaphilia"

Release date: Fri, Jun 09 2017, US Fri, Jun 09 2017

MERRIMACK are now revealing the second sinister song taken from their forthcoming fifth full-length, which bears the title 'Omegaphilia' and will be released on June 9th.

The pitch-black track "The Falsified Son" is exclusively streaming via the official premiere partners listed below.

Metal Obsession (AU)
Marast Music (CZ)
Metal.de (DE)

Metal Exposure (NL)
Eternal Terror (NO)
Musick Magazine (PL)
Ultraje (PT)
Crank It Up (SE)
Antichrist Magazine (UA)

MERRIMACK comment: "Our will to create a record that is more rooted in the 90's era of black metal becomes pretty obvious on 'The Falsified Son', which is a straight forward and simple track. Our typical lead guitars, the slightly dissonant end, the addition of a guitar solo, and the mid-tempo middle break make it a strong tune, which has proved to be very well received at our latest live performances. The lyrics deal with the way of life that we have chosen and its consequences – with black metal (which is mentioned in the song) being an immense part of it."

MERRIMACK are have previously unveiled the cover art (by Dehn Sora) and track-list of 'Omegaphilia', which can both be viewed below.

Fri, Apr 21 2017: SÓLSTAFIR

Upcoming release: "Berdreyminn"

Release date: Fri, May 26 2017, US Fri, May 26 2017

SÓLSTAFIR are now premiering the third song taken from their forthcoming sixth full-length 'Berdreyminn', which means a "dreamer of forthcoming events" and will be released on May 26th.

The track "Silfur-Refur" is now exclusively streaming worldwide via Roadburn Festival, where a limited edition 10" vinyl version in two variants will be made available exclusively at the official merchandise booth during this weekend.

Frontman Aðalbjörn “Addi” Tryggvason comments: "The song ‘Silfur-Refur’ revolves around having a sick ghost version of yourself taking control of your life. You resist with all you have, but you simply don’t stand a chance. It travels with you all the time, asleep or awake. The song was written in a few parts – with the intro being one of them. We knew right away that this would be the opener of the album."

Cover art by Adam Burke and track-list of 'Berdreyminn' are shown below.

Fri, Apr 21 2017: ULSECT

Upcoming release: "Ulsect"

Release date: Fri, May 12 2017, US Fri, May 12 2017

ULSECT are releasing the third new track taken from their self-titled debut album, which has been slated for release on May 12th.

The Dutch death metal innovators are now streaming "Unveil" here!

Regarding the track, ULSECT comment: "Our song 'Unveil' speaks of scorned omens and the revelation of inevitable consequence. The chaos and sudden transitions that initiate this track are contrasted by a moment of clarity, ultimately leading to a crushing and repetitive mantra; a symbolization of the vicious cycle in which death is a necessity for life to bloom."

Fri, Apr 21 2017: DISPERSE

Latest release: "Foreword"

Release date: Fri, Feb 24 2017, US Fri, Feb 24 2017

Following the prog shooting stars highly successful and at many venues sold out European tour with PLINI, DISPERSE drum progeny, Mike Malyan has released a new play-through video of the track "Surrender" taken from the band's current full-length 'Foreword'.

The play-through video is now streaming here!

The stick artist comments: "The song 'Surrender' is one of my favourites to play from 'Foreword'. The challenge of its intricate dynamics in the simpler sections almost trumps the later parts with the complex time signatures. Thankfully there is a mini drum solo section at the end to make up for all of the earlier difficulties."
