WINTERSUN – reveal track list and concept of  “The Forest Seasons”

Last week, the Finnish kings of epic melodic death, WINTERSUN, unveiled the title of their third studio album »The Forest Seasons« that will see the light of day in 2017 via Nuclear Blast. The new release will be a full-length album of 53 minutes featuring a brand new concept that band leader and mastermind Jari Mäenpää now reveals, together with the complete track list:

WINTERSUN – »The Forest Seasons«

1. Awaken From The Dark Slumber (Spring) 14:40
Part I The Dark Slumber
Part II The Awakening
2. The Forest That Weeps (Summer) 12:18
3. Eternal Darkness (Autumn) 14:08
Part I Haunting Darkness
Part II The Call of the Dark Dream
Part III Beyond the Infinite Universe
Part IV Death
4. Loneliness (Winter) 12:54

Total running time: 53:20

Yes, you guessed it! This album is our version of Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’, but it hasn’t got anything to do with Vivaldi musically or with classical music. It is 100% original and solid Wintersun material! It is something new and different. Let’s just say it has a bit more darker tone overall… 😉

Next week you will know how we are releasing our new album, so stay tuned for more details! Click those notifications ON in all our Facebook pages, you don’t want to miss the important updates of our new album! (Because of Facebook algorithm reach limit)

There`s definitely no space for soft nuances! The band centered around power fronter Candace is famous for maddening riffing, downbeats and HUGE breakdowns. Fans worldwide count on the unmatched aggression and integrity of Detroit`s daughter and sons – be it at their brutal live shows or on record!

Just in time for the European EMP Persistence tour together with Suicidal Tendencies and Agnostic Front to name just a few from this killer line-up, the band released a brand new music video for the track “Forever Militant”! Watch the video:

WALLS OF JERICHO commented on their music video:
“We shot this over the summer of 2016 at With Full Force Festival as a headliner of the main stage. The band really wanted to show the world what our live shows are live no matter what stage we play big or small. Getting ready to support Suicidal Tendencies in 2017 brings us back to Europe in a large club setting and we can’t be more excited to see everyone up close and more personal. “Forever Militant” is a stand out track on our new album so be ready to see us play this song every night on The Persistence Tour. “

VALLENFYRE: IN THE STUDIO!


VALLENFYRE: IN THE STUDIO!
Vallenfyre:  in the studio!
Crusty Death/Doom outfit VALLENFYRE have returned to GodCity studio in a frozen Salem, MA to record the follow up to their second album “Splinters” (2014). The new album will be entitled “Fear Those Who Fear Him” and sees the band recording as a three piece for the first time.

Joining stalwarts Gregor Mackintosh (vocals and guitar) and Hamish Glencross (guitar and bass) on the new record is Waltteri Väyrynen (drums) with production duties once again being helmed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, etc.).

Gregor Mackintosh comments: “12 songs. No samples. No triggers. No bullshit. Instead you get crucifyingly loud amps, ferocious drumming, and vicious vocals spitting out hate and venom. Raw honest brutality. No conformity. No compromise. A murderous nightmare vomiting poisonous bile onto a twisted world. Yeah, that’s the bits I like…”

The track listing is:

Born to Decay
Messiah
Degeneration
An Apathetic Grave
Nihilist
Amongst the Filth
The Merciless Tide
Dead World Breathes
Soldier of Christ
Cursed from the Womb
Kill all your Masters
Temple of Rats

Acclaimed shows to audiences across Europe and America in support of their celebrated second album “Splinters” honed the band into a bludgeoning live beast, and their ferocity in cohesion fuels this new album, which pushes their extremities of sound to wildly intense new levels.

“Fear Those Who Fear Him” will be released by Century Media Records this summer 2017.

New Album Ironshore Out Now | Order via www.metalblade.com/oni

 

2016 was a breakout year for progressive metal band ONI, who proved their lasting prowess with the release of their debut album Ironshore, toured with heavy metal greats such as Max & Iggor Cavalera and Children Of Bodom, tore up the stage at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest with Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God – and last but not least – introduced the heavy metal world to the wonders of “Xylosynth”.
 
After capping the year with Top 10 “Album of the Year” nods from the likes of Metal Injection, Metal Insider and others, ONI is returning with a brand new music video for one of their most ferocious, groovy tracks, “The Only Cure”, featuring guest vocals from none other than Randy Blythe himself. The music video, directed and edited by Abraham Roofeh, doubles as a petrifying, serial killer-themed horror film – rapidly cutting to scenes of ONI and Blythe setting the soundtrack.
 
Watch “The Only Cure” now, exclusively via Billboard. While there, read exclusive commentary about the video from ONI frontman Jake Oni: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/7655367/oni-video-premiere-the-only-cure-featuring-lamb-of-god-randy-blythe
 
Jake Oni tells Billboard, “[“The Only Cure”] is one of the stronger songs on the album. It’s a good representation of our current sound and where we will be going.”
 
Guest vocalist Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God adds, “What a super creepy video! Horror fans will love it – the production is Hollywood film-quality. It looks like something out of a SAW or Hostel movie. I had a lot of fun with the ONI guys recording this track, and it’s cool to see the music set to such dramatic scenery. Nightmares…”
 
Ironshore, which hit stores in November 2016 via Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records, can be ordered now via www.metalblade.com/oni and/or streamed via Spotify. Ironshore was produced by Josh Wilbur, primarily recognized for his work with top metal artists Lamb Of God and Gojira.
 
With their influences rooted in progressive metal, ONI‘s sound can be compared to the genre’s heavy hitters – The Human Abstract, Protest The Hero and Between The Buried And Me – yet they remain truly unique. With Jake Oni handling vocal duties, Martin Andres and Brandon White on guitar, Chase Bryant on bass and Joe Greulich on drums, they are also perhaps the first metal band to feature a Xylosynth player, Johnny D, which adds an intriguing dynamic to the nine tracks found on Ironshore. Watch the superhuman Xylosynth playthrough for the track “Barn Burner”

With OTEP Shamaya’s multifaceted vocal approach – ranging from gut wrenching roars to soft seductive poetry and beautiful singing showcasing her evolution as a writer and story teller – Generation Doom erupts with thunderous, punishing grooves that harmoniously detonate into dark industrial fury with magma flows of hard rock melodies that seamlessly shapeshift into a mysterious musical beast.
Upon release, Generation Doom debuted at #10 on the Billboard Independent Chart, #7 on the Rock Chart, #4 on the Hard Rock Chart and #109 on the Top 200 Albums Chart. Watch the music video for the powerful single “Zero”
