CRADLE OF FILTH Announce – You Will Know The Lion By His Claw (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO)


According to  Cradle Of Filth’s Facebook :

UK’s legendary extreme metal icons CRADLE OF FILTH have released the second single off of their eagerly awaited 12th album, ‘Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay’.
Watch the official lyric video for ‘You Will Know The Lion By His Claw’ here: https://youtu.be/s8r6DoD83ok

Commented singer Dani Filth: “This track is one of my favourite songs from the new ‘Cryptoriana’ album -aside from ‘Achingly Beautiful’, ‘Death And The Maiden’ and the title track- due to its very unique flavour and its vehement brutality. The culminative strike is especially very ‘Dusk… and Her Embrace’ era Black Metal…
Inspired by the works of H. Rider Haggard, a Victorian author who schooled in my home town of Ipswich, this song uses the railroad annexation of the Transvaal in Africa during the 19th century to paint a vision of the greedy machinations of man coming up against a furious, displaced natural foe, thus posing an allegory for the downtrodden, revolting.
I also have the latin of this expression tattooed on my arm (due to being the usual supercilious Leo!).
The quote was made famous having been said in 1697 by Johann Bernoulli about Isaac Newton’s anonymously submitted solution to Bernoulli’s challenge regarding the Brachistochrone curve.
So… Enjoy. Indulge. Desire. Darken.”

Furthermore the band also announced to release the dates for the upcoming European tour in support of ‘Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay’ on Thursday, August 17.

Enragement sacrifice blood for the sun god in their new music video!


Finnish extreme death metal band Enragement and Inverse Records have made a record deal concerning their second album named “Burned, Barren, Bloodstained“. The album is released June 9th 2017.

A single “Blood for the Sun God” was released today and it can be seen on Youtube

and listened to in Spotify https://open.spotify.com/album/5L7wwF1bM4Eo97GwzhqU5J It is an excellent foretaste of what’s to come.

Since their debut full-length, 2014’s ”Omnimalevolence of Man”, Enragement has taken ever further leaps into the darkness. Honing skills, technique and atmosphere, and above all, their myriad visions of evil, the band’s new opus “Burned, Barren, Bloodstained” paints the bands most abysmal portrait of man to date.

Enragement presents a unique blend of three equal-footed growlers adding twisted nuances into the sea of brutality, to seamlessly highlight each step of their disgusting stories. No sound, no idea is beyond Enragement’s quest to create the ultimate song to capture the human condition at its darkest. This is Extreme Death Metal, this is Enragement!

Krysthla Posts Lyric Video For “Make Disciples Of The Nations”


British extreme metallers Krysthla have just dropped a punishingly epic lyric video for new song ‘Make Disciples Of The Nations

 

The track is the second song to be taken from the Northamptonshire’s forthcoming brutal sophomore album.

“‘Make Disciples Of The Nations‘ is buried in the feeling of helplessness and despair as the world is plunged into misery as the wars keep coming. An endless stream of ignorant cannon fodder gets in line to go and do their part for democracy but it all means nothing in reality.  Eventually, all the nations of the world will be without culture or individuality. Goddess Columbia rules ok!” – Neil Hudson (guitars / lyricist)
Hailed by Metal Hammer Magazine (UK) as “setting 2016 on fire” (alongside Textures Dream Theater, Anthrax, and Devin Townsend) one of the finest extreme metal acts around will release their second album ‘Peace In Our Time’ on 7th April 2017 via PHD.
This new studio offering from Krysthla sees the British five-piece producing something extremely special. Part metal, part extreme, part technical, part progressive… Aurally this is a metal fan’s nirvana. There’s an abundance of aggression on offer, and yet the power of the band is amplified even more with melodic tinges and lighter musical landscapes, which never detract from the powerhouse delivery Krysthla is renowned for.
