Crimfall comments: “We are beyond excited for this opportunity to work with the legendary Metal Blade. It makes all these years we wrestled with the third album worthwhile as we can finally share the fruits of our labor through the most dedicated and respected label. Crimfall never does anything half-assed so be sure we go all in with this album as we see this as a massive opportunity to raise the stakes to the sky-high level.”

 

Crimfall took its shape in 2007 from the mind of Jakke Viitala. He gathered talented musicians to drive forth his lifelong vision of music that would respect no boundaries. Crimfall has released two albums since then, 2009′s As The Path Unfolds… and 2011′s The Writ Of Sword. Wearing many a mask, Crimfall‘s movie metal eludes easy descriptions. The influence of ancient grim-frost North and its traditional roots meet echoes of black metal, but it is all iced with massive orchestration and epic movie soundtrack atmosphere. The melodies convey atmospheres of majesty, adventure and times long forgotten, as the interplay of Mikko’s demonic screams and Helena’s heavenly vocals bring forth the raw, natural feelings and underline the cycle of seasons and the contrast of ascending lights and falling shadows.

With their third album, Amain, Crimfall has combined the best of the first two albums with new elements. Set to be released in summer 2017, a first teaser for Amain can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1CCBkqWCX0

Crimfall line-up:
Mikko Hakkinen – Vocals
Helena Haaparanta – Vocals
Jakke Viitala – Guitars
Miska Sipilainen – Bass
Janne Jukarainen – Drums

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”
