ORIGIN share ‘Accident And Error’ playthrough video


U.S. death metallers ORIGIN share playthrough video for the track “Accident And Error”, two days before the release of their new album, “Unparalleled Universe”. Watch the band deliver a seamless performance here:

“Unparalleled Universe” will be released on June 30th via Nuclear Blast (North America) and Agonia Records (Rest of the World).

For 20 years, ORIGIN has engaged a full-blown sensory assault of tight, taut, and technical death metal amplified by flashes of grindcore and groove. However, 2017’s “Unparalleled Universe” sees the quartet – Paul Ryan (guitar, vocals), John Longstreth (drums), Mike Flores (bass, vocals), and Jason Keyser (vocals) – strengthen that blueprint with a handful of surprises.

“It feels like an Origin album, but it’s unparalleled to what you might expect if you haven’t heard us for 10 or 15 years” says Ryan. “To me, it’s a true reflection of ourselves. I compare it to an action movie. Our earlier material is filled with action from beginning to end. Now, the idea is to add a little more depth and dynamics. You could say there are some twists in the plot musically”.

Mayhem return to Europe with De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas in autumn


MAYHEM are announcing yet another leg of their European “Purgatorium”-tour that comes with the complete performance of their black metal landmark debut album ‘De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas’.

A list of all confirmed MAYHEM shows including festival performances this summer can be viewed below.

Legendary MAYHEM vocalist Attila Csihar commented: “The first time I ever heard from Mayhem was in ’91-’92 when I received a letter from Euronymous. I did not know that message was going to change my whole life. They were looking for a new vocalist to replace Dead on their debut album. Of course, I agreed to their offer and in 1993 we recorded ‘De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas’, which to me remains one of the most magical albums of all time. The music opened some unfathomable dimensions that reached beyond what we were able to handle and it unleashed a complete chaos, which ended up at burning churches and eventually a murder within the band. It was almost impossible to release that record, but when it finally came out under the sun in ’94, it left a lasting impact on the whole metal scene. The so-called “2nd wave of black metal” was born in the cold and dark underground of Oslo. At the same timeMAYHEM collapsed and got burned down as well. From those ashes, the band had to rise again, when MAYHEM reunited with some old and new members. Yet that album always remained so strong and so unique that even after my reunion with MAYHEM in 2004, we were still not comfortable to present it live in full. Time passed and the whole band got stronger and more experienced. In 2016 we suddenly felt that it was time to finally play the whole record in order to unleash That Beast after more than two decades. ‘De Mysteriis Dom Sathans’ will soon become alive!”

Death Blooms release sick new music video


As seen on Scuzz TV, and taken from their self-titled debut ep, Death Blooms dispense with the pleasantries and show off music muscle with their new music video ‘Sick’:

Hailing from Liverpool and Manchester, the metalcore four-piece burst onto the scene earlier this year with their stunning first music release ‘I’m Dead’ and a number of live shows which has seen them sharing the stages with the likes of Dope, Skindred, Raging Speedhorn, (Hed)P.E., Anti-Clone and more.
Supporters of mental health charity MIND, Death Blooms fresh take on metal with meaning has seen their fan base grow rapidly. Vocalist Paul Barrow humbly recognises this, “We talk to people a lot who’ve taken the time to listen to our music, and because the lyrics encapsulate what many of us feel on a daily basis, a lot of folk make the connection quickly about mental health and the need for well-being in this fast and furious digital age.”
Barrow explains the meaning behind the song and new video, “‘Sick’ is about the constant struggle inside of your own thoughts and the journey you undertake along the way. Sometimes, you feel like you have complete control of the situation and other times you have absolutely none. ‘Sick’ is about wanting to break free from your own shackles, but acknowledging and accepting that this is who you are. It’s good to talk about how you feel and to be honest, most importantly, with yourself. I feel like the song ended up being one massive therapy session for me.”
Death Blooms self-titled debut ep is available now.
Death Blooms live:
17th July – Milton Keynes, Craufurd Arms (w/ Trapt, The Fallen State)
27th Aug – Liverpool, Studio 2 (w/ Loathe, Harbinger)
More dates to be announced.
