AZARATH premiere new track via Ultimate-Guitar.com


Polish death/black metal tyrants AZARATH have teamed up with Ultimate-Guitar.com to premiere a new song from their forthcoming album “In Extremis”, which is set to be released on April 7th via Agonia Records. Listen to new the track exclusively at this link:

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/features/ug_exclusive_stream_the_new_azarath_song_let_my_blood_become_his_flesh.html

Earlier the band premiered the songs  “At The Gates Of Understanding” (available as lyric video here:  https://youtu.be/PkOqzLUXPAU) as well as “Annihilation (Smite All the Illusions)” (listen at: https://youtu.be/wzdG4XgsWwI).

outed as a “demonic mutation of Krisiun and Behemoth with shades of Immolation”, AZARATH stand up to their wicked name. The band’s death metal is crisp, black, and while it possesses the charm of their American counterparts, it remains open-minded and organic. This should not come as a surprise, considering the AZARATH‘s impressive line-up and cemented position as one the the best Polish acts of the genre. The band was formed in 1998 by drummer Inferno (of  Behemoth fame). He’s 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.

Meaning “at the point of death” or “under extreme circumstances” in Latin, “In Extremis” is yet another apex reached by AZARATH. Offering a vehement ride through the netherworlds, the effort places the band back at the fore of the genre, with strong ties to the group’s early cult albums. The eerie painting that adorns the album’s cover was made by Marta Promińska (Hypnagogic Painting).

Recorded in various locations between March and November 2016, “In Extremis” was mixed and mastered by Haldor Grunberg at Satanic Audio. Graphic design and layout were done by Mentalporn (Behemoth, Origin, Decapitated) with calligraphy provided by Ihasan Art and additional work by Holy Poison Design.

THE HAUNTED: ALBUM RECORDINGS STARTING SOON; SCANDINAVIAN TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED!


After finishing a successful UK tour together with Meshuggah, Swedish Thrash Metallers THE HAUNTED are soon to commence recordings for their newest, 9th studio album effort, which is expected to be released worldwide by Century Media Records later in 2017.

THE HAUNTED’s guitarist Ola Englund checked in with the following status update for the new album: “After almost 2.5 years since the release of ‘Exit Wounds’, we’re finally hitting the studio again. This time around we have chosen Russ Russell of Parlour Studios to record/mix the album, so we’re heading over to UK early march to start with the drums. And telling from the pre-productions, this will be a bit more of a dynamic album than “Exit Wounds”, song-wise. I’m very excited to let the fans hear what we have in store. It’s brutality and beauty in perfect disharmony.”

GENE HOGLAN Reveals STRAPPING YOUNG LAD “Skeksis” Drum Playthrough Video from Upcoming DVD


New DVD, The Atomic Clock: The Clock Strikes Two, out February 3, 2017
Available for Pre-Order NOW:
North America/Worldwide: http://www.hoglanindustries.com
Canada: http://www.reversedrecords.com

Featuring Interviews with Members of ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT and More

GENE HOGLAN‘s highly-anticipated second DVD, The Atomic Clock: The Clock Strikes Two, is due to be released on February 3, 2017 and will feature the Clock himself breaking down some of his favorite beats, telling stories and playing along with tracks from several of his most legendary projects, including Strapping Young Lad, Testament and Death.

In advance of next week’s release, Hoglan is revealing what many extreme music fans may consider the most anticipated playthrough from the DVD, Strapping Young Lad’s “Skeksis” from their Billboard-charting 2005 release, Alien. Take a look at the blazing playthrough now via GENE HOGLAN’s YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/-eaIvh6ELVg

GENE HOGLAN recalls the original “Skeksis” writing and recording sessions: “Devin [Townsend] and I wrote the tune in late summer, early fall of ’04, at this shabby downtown Vancouver rehearsal space that kinda represented where we were both at mentally in our lives. I remember him mentioning that he’d love to have an ‘Almighty PunchDrunk’ (one of my all-time favorite bands whom I’ve also drummed for) feel and vibe to whatever was about to come out of us. To me, that meant to include, ‘the PunchDrunk beat’, which is this great, samba-esque, Latin-feel beat (that I am sure has a name, I’d love to know it) which PD proudly stole from the legendary Canadian band The Smalls. I’m sure you’ve all heard it a time or two.

Dev and I played around the beat the whole song, getting closest to it in the chorus, then really sinking into it in the last minute or so, in the part I refer to as the “girl fight” part, because that’s what it sounds like Dev is saying there. It is such a fun beat to play, and a real satisfying denouement to the song. A moment of crowning glory to a ruling tune. The version on the new DVD is a completely re-envisioned mix, where the vocals and samples are absent, really bringing out the rhythm guitars and basic tracks.”
