YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS SIGN WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH NAPALM RECORDS!


Ahoy sailors! Known for their excellent taste and passion for pirates in metal, Napalm Records welcomes a new band to their diverse and exciting artist roster and label family: YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS have signed a worldwide record deal with Napalm Records! The band’s 3rd studio album titled ‘First Night Back In Port is set to be released on June 30th 2017.

YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS takes you 300 years back in time for an imaginary journey through the harsh life at sea during the early 18th century. With songs inspired by traditional Irish and Scandinavian folk music, acting and elaborate historical clothing the privateers tell a story about the rough sailor’s life, lived on the other side of the law – and the fight against oppression and nationalism.

Together, the nearly 30 crew members take turns to go on tour and plunder, and with around a dozen sailors on stage no two shows are ever the same. The mix of rude folk and punk music invites you to dance and sing along, while the gripping ballads will make the toughest pirate heart soft.

Says the band about their recent signing with Napalm Records:
“Spring has finally come to the Gulf of Botnia, and with the rotting ice we are now able to set sail with some extraordinary good news onboard. We are immensely proud to announce that our chaotic band of Pirates will be joining forces with Napalm Records, to release our next album First Night Back in Port. Lock up the taverns and hide away the Rum, June 30th in the year of our lord 1717 (2017), this Pandora’s box of ear worms goes worldwide!

Putting our pen and ink to the chart of Napalm Records means procuring the fire power to bring the forces of Europe to a total blockade. And by trading our royalties for rum and cherry beer, we estimate that we will save a fortune and a half in the years to come.”

Give these pirates a warm welcome, sailors! With YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS you are in for an adventure that will rock you like a schooner in storm and feed your lust for new horizons under the black flag!

ULSECT premiere second track of debut album


ulsect logo.png

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

Regarding the song premiere, ULSECT comment: “The track ‘Our Trivial Toil’ depicts absolute futility. The colliding ways of man leading to inevitable doom. The oppressive force displayed throughout this song makes it one of the heaviest on our debut; even midst passages of deceptive calm, imminent terror lurks beneath the surface, ready to seize occasion…”

ULSECT have previously revealed artwork and track-list of their debut album, which can both be viewed below.

It is hard to imagine Tilburg as the heart of darkness. Yet in musical terms, this expression qualifies as an apt description for the homely Dutch city that has spawned such acts as blackened extremists DODECAHEDRON and rhythmic progressives TEXTURES. Out of this circle, ULSECT have emerged.

The death metal innovators feature guitarist Joris Bonis and drummer Jasper Barendregt from DODECAHEDRON as well as former TEXTURES bass-player Dennis Aarts. It therefore hardly comes as a surprise that elements of their origins have permeated into ULSECT‘s eponymous debut album. You will find high technical precision and prowess woven into dense dissonance and lucent atmosphere.

‘Ulsect’ embodies relentless post-death metal aesthetics fraught with shifting patterns and dark tonality. The primeval forces unleashed by pioneers such as GORGUTS and DEATHSPELL OMEGA are violently harnessed to serve a sinister musical purpose. Nightmares transformed into sonic matter.

ULSECT herewith cordially invite you to dare and explore their dark dimension.

BROTHER FIRETRIBE 15TH ANNIVERSARY EUROPEAN TOUR ANNOUNCED FIRST EVER HEADLINE UK SHOW…


Finnish AOR maestros Brother Firetribe are proud to announce their 15th Anniversary European Tour.

Embarking upon a voyage across 11 different countries, this 19-date headline run not only celebrates the band’s 15 year career, it also features their first bill-topping appearances in certain countries, including the UK…

“We absolutely can’t wait to come back to the UK to hook up with all the friends we made there the last time. It’ll be a riot!”BFT front-man, Pekka Ansio Heino.

To date, the group’s sole UK performance took place at Firefest in Nottingham in 2014; however, this will change in October of this year when they return to Nottingham for the melodic hard rock festival that is Rockingham, as well as putting on their first headline UK show at the newly re-launched Borderline in Central London.

UK dates as follows:-

21.10. UK – London, Borderline

22.10. UK – Nottingham, Rockingham Festival 

Brother Firetribe’s fourth full-length album, ‘Sunbound’, is released on March 24th via Spinefarm Records.

Featuring 12 new pieces of music, including lead track ‘Taste Of A Champion’ plus follow-up single / video ‘Indelible Heroes’, ‘Sunbound’ has been mixed by Finnish studio-meisteMikko Karmila (NightwishChildren Of Bodom, Stratovarius), and is the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Diamond In The Firepit’.

Since first coming together for their ‘False Metal’ debut back in 2006Brother Firetribe –featuring Nightwish guitarist Emppu Vuorinen – have flown the flag for a brand of music (‘ultra-melodic West Coast AOR’) that once strode the US radio airwaves like a colossus, filling up arenas and providing the silky soundtrack to pool-side summers and wind-in-the-hair coastal highway drives; music pioneered by some of rock music’s most legendary names…

However, Brother Firetribe – that’s Vuorinen, Pekka Ansio Heino, keyboard player Tomppa Nikulainen, bassist Jason Flinck & drummer Hannes Pirila – are not trying to hitch a DeLorean ride into the past; rather, their collective aim is to both celebrate and reinvigorate a musical style that is all about big hooks, strong melodies, soaring vocals and searing guitars, not to mention the desire to entertain on a grand an’ glorious scale.

Carach Angren reveal first new track and details of forthcoming album


The Dutch masters of horror are back with their most flamboyant album so far. On ‘Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten’, CARACH ANGREN are painting musical pictures that easily combine the grandiose depth of a Rembrandt with Van Gogh’s maelstrom of whirling colours and the utter madness of Bosch. This lusciously seductive danse macabre will drag you in and never let go.

CARACH ANGREN are now unveiling the first stunning track of their forthcoming new album. The Dutch masters of horror metal have entitled their new haunting ‘Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten’ and the release date has been slated for June 16th.

CARACH ANGREN comment: “After months of hard work we proudly reopen the doors to our haunted mansion to reveal the first deadly taste of our upcoming concept album. A unique horror story as you all expect and deserve from us, we consider this as one of the most terrifying tracks that we have created so far.”

CARACH ANGREN are furthermore revealing the cover art by renowned Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu and track-list of ‘Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten’, which can both be viewed below.

With ‘Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten’, CARACH ANGREN are returning to “pure” storytelling with episodes that are centered on a girl playing a little too long with her Ouija board. The Dutch have pushed their unashamedly theatric style to a new intense height. You do not believe us yet? Press play and unleash these radiant ghosts into your home…
