The up-and-coming traditional metal quintet BLADE KILLER – recently hailed by their hometown LA Weekly as Los Angeles’ “best new old-school metal band” – has unveiled a second track from their highly anticipated full-length debut, “High Risk,”due out Nov. 23 via M-Theory Audio. A visualizer video for the song “Midnight Sinner” can be seen below.
HUNTRESS singer Jill Janus ( Sep 2nd, 1975 – Aug 14th, 2018) commit suicide.
“Jill Janus—frontwoman for the California heavy metal band Huntress—passed away on Tuesday, August 14. A long-time sufferer of mental illness, she took her own life outside of Portland, Oregon. Janus spoke publicly about these challenges in hopes of guiding others to address and overcome their mental illness.”
Our thoughts & prayers are with family & friends.

The Swedish pioneers of timeless slowness are back in top form, distilling the essence of epic doom metal!
It only takes a few short bars of the title track ‘House Of Doom‘ to feel that familiar sensation again: yes, Leif Edling aka the undisputed king of minor key songwriting has returned. With him, he brings frenzied riffing, melancholy made sound and warm Hammond organ tapestries that form the pillars of every CANDLEMASS classic!

Grammy® Award-winning band Ghost today announced their fourth sacred psalm Prequelle (pronounced prē-KWELL) will be released on June 1, 2018 via Spinefarm/Loma Vista Recordings. Prequelle is available for pre-order starting today HERE. Limited edition bundles including 8-Tracks, Casettes and more are available exclusively in the Ghost shop HERE.
Fans have come along for the ride for years, not knowing for certain who was behind the anonymous band… that is, until Tobias Forge recently revealed himself as the man behind Ghost. Each album is more like a film release than a record release. In addition to serving as director, Forge conceives the role of every character, and oversees everything from the screenplay to video to wardrobe design to artwork to cinematography to soundtrack.
In an interesting twist in Ghost’s saga, Cardinal Copia has been appointed to take over vocal duties for the forthcoming psalm. Meet him HERE. Lyrically, Prequelle delves into the plague, the apocalypse, and dark ages. The entire body of work is also a snapshot of the world in which we live in on a daily basis, brought to life through an emotive, enlightening, and riveting body of songs.
Cardinal moves like Christopher Walken , not sure if the fatboy slip video inspired.
Pre-order for the full album is available via hotstuff.se
