Vocalist Matt “Youngy” Young commented: “We’ve been working hard on our new album down in Australia, and we honestly believe this record is not only a continuation of our trademark sound, but a progression into new territory in terms of songwriting and
musicianship. Couple that with the most off the wall videos we have ever produced, and I think we are really onto something with this new release. Most importantly we’re excited to bring these new tracks to the European audiences when we tour alongside Polish legends Decapitated through October and November. It will be an awesome and diverse tour package, featuring two bands from different spheres of the extreme metal world, bringing utter chaos to the stage each and every night! Be prepared for more over the top King Parrot absurdity than ever before, we are giving this one our all!”.

REVIEW: AZARATH – IN EXTREMIS


REVIEW: AZARATH – IN EXTREMIS by Jessica Johnson / Dark Art Conspiracy

Release date: April 7th
Genre: Blackened Death Metal

The newest album of Polish black/death metal tyrants Azarath has the right name. “In Extremis,” meaning “at the point of death” or “under extreme circumstances” in Latin, is a non-stop assault of extreme death metal that takes no prisoners. The anticipated album arrives six long years after its predecessor, “Blasphemers’ Maledictions” (2011).

Azarath was formed almost two decades ago by drummer Inferno (of Behemoth fame), and he is currently accompanied by Bart (Armagedon, Damnation) on guitars, Necrosodom (Anima Damnata, Deus Mortem, ex-Infernal War) on vocals and guitars, as well as Peter (ex-Lost Soul) on bass.

Stylistically, the album is a demonic concoction of death metal influences: Polish extreme death metal with its relentless riffs, ominous melodies and unearthly growls, and old school death with its chaotic, screeching guitar solos the likes of Morbid Angel.

BLAZE OF PERDITION Announce Details For New Album “Conscious Darkness”


Polish black metallers BLAZE OF PERDITION will release a new album, “Conscious Darkness”, on the 3rd of November via Agonia Records. Crowning a decade of romancing darkness and death, the successor to “Near Death Revelatons” (2015) will feature four new songs with a playing time of approximately 45 minutes.  

BLAZE OF PERDITION solidified their position as one the most interesting young acts of the genre, over the course of three studio albums. In 2013, a tragic road accident took the life of bassist Ikaroz and left vocalist S. and drummer Vizunseverely injured. Through a loss of a friend and a near-death experience, the band found strength to let the feelings deepen into music and record a reflective album, “Near Death Revelations”. The group’s creative yet methodical approach gave birth to a dark, enigmatic unity, that continues to mature and explore the genre more and more, with “Conscious Darkness” being their latest offering.

The recordings of “Conscious Darkness” were completed this June, with final mixes and mastering done at Satanic Audio Studio, and cover artwork drawn by Karmazid. Layout was prepared by Kontamination Design, while I fot. aleksandra burska shot new band photos.

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”.
