SHIBALBA (Acherontas) stream new song “Aether Ananda Aiwass”


The secretive Greek/Swedish collective of SHIBALBA, has shared another new taste of their upcoming work of meditative dark art, featuring traces of ritual, ambient, trance and shamanic  music. The song  “Aether Ananda Aiwass” comes from the “Psychostasis – Death Of Khat” album, set to be released on April 30th via Agonia Records. Listen to the song here:

SHIBALBA is Acherontas V.Priest (Acherontas), Karl NE/Nachzehrer (Nåstrond) and Aldra-Al-Melekh. Their music is saturated with the mysticism of the East. It’s richly detailed and multidimensional, while layered with chanting and broadly defined elements of traditional ritual and shamanic music. Apart from contemporary synths and guitar drones, the band makes use of bones and skulls as percussion instruments, Tibetan horns, Tibetan singing bowls, bone & horne trumpets, darbuka’s (goblet drums) as well as ceremonial bells and gongs. The band’s intention, in their own words, is to “guide the subconsious of the individual to dream beyond the skin of matter & to dream in ecstasy and exult”.

“Psychostasis – Death Of Khat” was recorded by the band themselves in Greece and Sweden, in a manner in which sound vibrations have been registered in a form analogous to the way in which the human ear perceives sound. High standards were provided especially for the vinyl edition of the album.

MINDMAZE: “SIGN OF LIFE” MUSIC VIDEO RELEASED


The US progressive power metal band MINDMAZE just released a music video for “Sign of Life”, the first single from their new album “Resolve”. The album will be released on April 28th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings.
Over the span of 68 minutes of melodic and powerful music ripe with recurring themes, the band takes the listener on a whirlwind journey through the scope of human emotion in hopes they will be able to project their own experiences into these intensely personal lyrics inspired by an amalgam of real-life events.

Resolve reprises the band’s ever-present influences from bands like Queensryche, Dream Theater, Iron Maiden, Savatage, and a mixture of contemporary power metal and melodic rock hooks and songwriting while moving the band further into progressive and theatrical territory with more atypical song structures used to best serve the concept of the album.

The band continues to forge their footprint as one of the most promising and unique female-fronted bands to come along in recent times.

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.
