Extreme metal band Symphony Of Heaven have teamed up with The Metal Resource to bring you the exclusive premiere of the new lyric video for ‘You Shall Be As Gods’  The video can be watched below.

Logan Thompson (Pathos) states: “We are extremely pleased to be under the wing of the legendary Rottweiler Records, who has consistently released top notch quality extreme metal. There’s no other place we’d rather be.”

Symphony Of Heaven continues to grow their reach and spread their message of Suffering to the extreme metal community.”

“The video for ‘You Shall Be As Gods’ conveys the story of the song perfectly. Concentrating on the many layers within the visual artwork, it reveals the complexity of the broken condition of Man in his quest for self-divinity.”

Three Days In Hell have debuted their first album, “A Bloody Retelling”, which is being released through The Bearded Dragon Productions. The band was created through 2018 by Samuel Reeves on Vocals and Chris Besonen on Guitars and Drums.

The album is a concept release, setting up a long future of similar releases, including a series of split EPs. evilSHED, a project created by Besonen, has been a part of this form of storytelling, and the two acts continue to present an interesting form of lyrical composure, despite their raw production values.

All I can say is the album is raw, rough, heavy and full of bizarre Metal noise. I think it reflects the lyrics well, as they chronicle the events of the Old Testament, which is bloody, violent and a bit unorganized too. The Bible is Brutal, so we want to reflect that in every way we can!” states Besonen.

Singer Anneke van Giersbergen can easily be called the hardest working and most versatile singer in the Netherlands. She will forever be mentioned as a singer of The Gathering but since 2007 she has built up her own solid solo career. That she is a musical chameleon is evidenced by collaborations with artists such as Devin Townsend, Anathema, Icelandic folk group Árstíðir, Napalm Death and BLØF.

2019 was all about the 25-year anniversary of Anneke‘s career, this anniversary was celebrated with 2 sold-out shows in the Effenaar in her own Eindhoven, and she was also rewarded with a Buma ROCKS! Export Award for most successful singer in the heavy genre. Anneke is currently working on a (semi) acoustic album, in order to give her fans a glimpse of what is to come, she sets off solo in March and April 2020 for a number of acoustic performances that will take her to special locations.

Little introduction is needed for the American Metalcore legends “As I lay dying” hailing from San Diego, California. Although the band went into hiatus post Tim Lambesis’s incarceration in 2014, they came out with their 7th Studio album “Shaped by Fire” on the 20th September, 2019. Phil Sgrosso along with Nick Hipa joined the ranks on guitars in 2003 really changed the game when they released the much acclaimed 3rd Album “Shadows are Security”. Although over the years the band members had disagreement and went in separate ways to work on side projects. But that’s a different matter!

Tim Lambesis along with Jordan Mancano formed “As I lay dying” back in 2000, the name was inspired by Wiliam Faulkner’s book of the same name. The band quotes In Flames, Living Sacrifice, Iron Maiden, Slayer, At the Gates, Pantera, Megadeth, Fear Factory, Cannibal Corpse, Thin Lizzy, Shai Hulud, Dark Tranquility, Metallica, Judas Priest, and Earth Crisis as some of their influences. Predominantly a Melodic Metalcore outfit, they have experimented and worked on Thrash and Death metal genre’s in their exciting past.
