ANTARKTIS SIGN WITH AGONIA RECORDS


ANTARKTIS (IN MOURNING, OCTOBER TIDE) SIGN WITH AGONIA RECORDS

antarktis

Swedish emotion-driven, post-rock/metal newcomer act ANTARKTIS has signed a record deal with Agonia Records. The group features two full-time members of IN MOURNING, who instead of entertaining the fact of being labeled as a side project, decided to dedicate their time & venture off into a territory uncharted by their mother band. Said members are guitarists Björn Pettersson and Tobias Netzell (ex-OCTOBER TIDE), both co-founders. In ANTARKTIS, they’re accompanied by vocalist and bassist Daniel Jansson (IKHON) together with drummer Jonas Martinsson (ME THE TIGER, NECROSAVANT). The band is currently working on a debut album.

Commented by ANTARKTIS: “We are super stoked to announce that we are getting on board with Agonia Records for future collaborations! We have been silent for some time now but we’re working on a full length album and we might have some additional stuff coming up too. Good vibes”.

ANTARKTIS first started out as an after work side project from Björn and Tobias many years ago. A few songs were made but the idea of a band was laid on ice before it ever saw the light of day. Years later ideas were picked up again and given new life in 2013 by a complete band line-up consisting of Björn and Tobias in company of Jonas on drums and Daniel on bass and lead vocals. A debut EP was recorded under former band name Majalis.

As a band consisting only of members being a part of other musical acts, ANTARKTIS might be considered somewhat of a side project, but a side project in the shape of a real band getting great portions of dedication and love from its members. Since the release of the debut EP, the band has done a bunch of live shows, festivals and a shorter tour. Steadily growing closer as a unit, continuously writing and working on new material.

Line-up:
Daniel Jansson – Bass/Vocals
Björn Pettersson – Guitar
Tobias Netzell – Guitar
Jonas Martinsson – Drums

Nocturnal_graves-band-dijana_krv

NOCTURNAL GRAVES formed in Melbourne, Australia in 2004. Two well received demos, ‘Profanation of Innocence’ and ‘Deathstorm’ followed in the same year. Quickly scoring a record deal, the band officially released the ‘Necromancer’ 7″ (2006) before unleashing their debut full-length ‘Satan’s Cross’ (2007). The Australians hit Europe in 2009 and celebrated the event with ‘The Gravespirit Sessions’ Split. Former DESTRÖYER 666 and also RAZOR OF OCCAM guitarist Shrapnel and drummer L.W. joined in 2012. NOCTURNAL GRAVES widely extended their international fanbase with the release of their sophomore album “…From the Bloodline of Cain” (2014), which resulted in an invitation to the 2016 edition of Maryland Deathfest and more shows in the US. The band supported the tour with a limited 7″ EP ‘Sharpen the Knives / Lead us to the Endless Fire’.

Memoriam Set To Release Debut Album “For The Fallen”


Old school death metallers, MEMORIAM, are set to unleash their debut album, »For The Fallen«, on March 24th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records. It will contain 8 tracks, incl. ‘War Rages On’, ‘Resistance’ (both featured on »The Hellfire Demos I«) and ‘Surrounded (By Death)’ (featured on »The Hellfire Demos II«).

memoriam-for-the-fallenThe album’s impressive artwork was created by Dan Seagrave (BENEDICTION, DISMEMBER, HYPOCRISY, SUFFOCATION,…).

Dan stated on the cover artwork:
“Starting from the bands thoughts on visualising a kind of funeral procession with a theme of combat, war and in conjunction with the title »For The Fallen«. As with all my works, I then attempt to make the information evolve in my minds eye, and allow imagination to take over those elements. But retaining the core concept. The painting thus depicts.

A funeral procession moving through a long war torn cityscape. Twisted shards of towers & buildings. A cathedral facade stands defiantly, yet riddled with destruction and decay. At closer inspection the structures all seem to be infected with an element of natural decomposition, as if organically inclined to fade with the demise of the season.

The season itself lost in a timeless void. The figures appear as remnants of once soldiers, now strange in their gathered mass. Drawn forwards by the drifting momentum of the procession. Unaware of their emaciated state they follow the commander.
The commander’s elongated appearance is tattered and almost creature like, with the combat style elements and gas mask falsely presenting as a costume.

The procession appears almost ghost like, ancient and serene, slowly moving through this eerie place as if forever.
Far in the background there might still be a war happening, but perhaps in another time. As we view a sub level of reality. Lost in the present. Captured in light, where the war had passed through and we are left in a ghost biology. Where chemicals and history meet to create an inescapable surrealism.”

To give a first taster of what to expect from this highly-anticipated record, the first single from »For The Fallen«, ‘Reduced To Zero’, has been launched today.

LANCER – New Album Out and 2nd Track by Track trailer launched


“Great Swedish energetic power metal with stunning technical virtuosity and brilliant melodies! A must have album!”

METALLIAN (F)

“»Mastery« is like a dream come true for anyone who needs mature arrangements and a slight touch of melancholic darkness in the majestic songbook of traditional power metal. LANCER will easily become the next sweet obsession for fans of early HELLOWEEN, EDGUY and HAMMERFALL, but starting from this album their personality is stronger than ever.”
ROCK HARD (I), Emanuele Biani

“This album is a modern retro masterpiece – in the vein of IRON MAIDEN and HELLOWEEN. It’s fast, it’s melodic – it’s all you need!”
SCREAM (N), Stig Ødegaard

“A technical and majestic masterpiece! With »Mastery« LANCER bring fresh air to the power metal scene!”
MYROCK (F)

The wait is over – LANCER‘s label debut, »Mastery«, is out now through Nuclear Blast Records. The cover artwork of this outstanding 10-track record was created by Dimitar Nikolov (ROSS THE BOSS, MAJESTY) once again. The final layout was done by Marcelo Vasco (SLAYER, MACHINE HEAD,…).
