LORNA SHORE – release “Death Portrait” from “Immortal”


LORNA SHORE’s forthcoming album, “Immortal”, which is due for a worldwide release on January 31st 2020, is nothing short of a shock of blackened, symphonic ambitions and epic intents.



Click HERE for a video for the brand new song “Death Portrait”: 

Austin Archey (drums) says: “’Death Portrait’ unveils the intensity and emotion we put behind this entire new record. Paired with a live video featuring footage from our first US headliner, I believe this gives the listener a proper journey through the darkness that was used to create ‘Immortal’ as a whole “

Formed in 2010, LORNA SHORE were quick to surpass “local band” expectations with 2012’s “Bone Kingdom”-EP and it’s follow-up, 2013’s “Malificium”-EP. Through each release, LORNA SHORE continues to prove themselves to be an increasingly formidable force and a ferocious live proposition. 2017’s sophomore LP, “Flesh Coffin” showed a band that had moved beyond mere “deathcore” trappings and had evolved into a modern metal band, as uncompromising and accomplished as any of their contemporaries or influences.

“We became the band we wanted to be, rather than just the product of our early influences,” says guitarist Adam De Micco. “’Immortal’ is the latest chapter of that story of us as a band, as players and as people.” Armed with new vocalist C.J. McCreery (ex-Signs of the Swarm), LORNA SHORE has made a record that stands apart from their earlier works. The earliest hints of that have come with the release of album tracks, “This Is Hell” and “Darkest Spawn”, twin deathly salvos released from LORNA SHORE’s early album sessions with producer Josh Schroeder (Battlecross, King 810, For Today) at Random Awesome Studios in Midland, MI. Recording for the album.

“Immortal” is the beginning of another chapter for LORNA SHORE and is available in the following formats: CD Jewelcase, LP+CD, Digital Album. The following vinyl colours will be available apart from black vinyl:

200x clear via CM Distro

200x mint green via Impericon

200x dark green via EMP

In North America the vinyl edition will be a neon yellow LP.

ENTOMBED A.D. – Release New Album In August


Nobody can cheat death. And nobody can cheat at death metal either.

Their new album will be entitled “Bowels Of Earth” and will be released on August 30th!


“Bowels Of Earth” represents a huge leap forward for these gnarly veterans. Faster, tighter and more viscerally crushing than anything they have produced before.

“We have our Brazilian friend, Guilherme, coming into the band on guitar and” laughs LG. “We’ve been getting energy from that. This recording was a lot more focused and straightforward. We kept things simple, but still with thought behind everything. And there was absolutely no stress!”

the legendary Italian progressive rock band “BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO” release their first new album in 25 years


Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, the legendary Italian progressive rock band, today release their first new album in 25 years, titled ‘Transiberiana’ (Inside Out Music Sony Music group). To celebrate, the band have launched a video for their most recent single L’imprevisto, and you can watch that here: https://youtu.be/M2yYTRYTyYk


Of the track, Vittorio Nocenzi commented :“At one point, the Siberian cold is so intense that the ice covers the entire track. So it becomes dangerous to move on, it could be derailed. And then the train stops, in the tundra desert. It’s cold and travelers start to be afraid. Lights can be seen outside, it could be a village. Then they start thinking about getting off the train to go and ask for help. The cold increases.It is the metaphor of the unpredictable things that change in the course of our existence, fear before what we know is always the first weapon of defense. Instead the unexpected can also give us unexpected positive surprises, if only we were more willing to face diversity, the unusual: any unexpected can build new discoveries and new certainties if we face it with courage and determination.
