Sweden’s melodic, progressive death/doom metal masters, In Mourning, will release a new studio album, “Garden Of Storms”, on October 4 worldwide via Agonia Records. A lyric video for the song ‘Yields Of Sand’, created by Vinterblot, can be found below.

The band commented on the new album: “We made a new album! It’s called Garden of Storms and it is the final piece in a trilogy which started with The Weight Of Oceans. We’ve headed back… and forward, at the same time. We’re back recording with Jonas Kjellgren who made the sound of our earlier albums, yet we have a lot of things that are new with this album. The band constellation is new with Sebastian and Jocke, we’ve worked in ways we’ve never done before, new vibes and new songs even if we planted the seeds to some of them a long time ago. In times where things kind of seem to scatter and change a lot around us, this still feels like our most solid, honest and complete album to date.”

Hailed by many as the heir to Opeth‘s melodeath throne, In Mourning was formed in the Swedish woods in the year 2000. Since then, the band has evolved, striving to refine its sound to what it is today. Musically, the group blends a broad spectrum of influences into a foundation of melodic death metal. Thrusting from doomy metal-riffs, blasting drumbeats and deep growling vocals, to calm breezes of clean flowing melodies and harmonies. Continue reading »

‘Apocalypse’, the brand new song and music video from Swedish female fronted metallers Metalite, has been launched. This is the first single from the group’s upcoming album, “Biomechanicals”, that will be released on 25th of October via AFM Records. Check it out below.

The future is close: And she looks pretty overwhelming. Two years after their exciting debut „Heroes In Time“, the Swedish Melodic Metal renewers Metalite return with a new singer and a giant stroke. This band could be the new heroes of Modern Metal – trendsetting, epic and of highest quality. Of course, we have been knowing for long that the Swedish do have a hand for successful Metal. But an album with the quality of „Biomechanicals“ is even for this country a rarity. Influenced by the concept of bands like Within Temptation, the quintet from Stockholm reinvents classic Melodic Metal – and unleashes a storm of power, monumentality and zeitgeist, that you cannot escape. „Biomechanicals“ continues the high level from their debut and turns everything to 11, what stood on 10 before: A richer production, stronger songwriting and an elusive and mysterious aura distinguishes „Biomechanicals“ from everything you already know about Melodic Metal.

Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach has issued an update about the progress of the recording sessions for the new album from Times of Grace, his collaborative project with Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz.

He wrote on Instagram: “The new music has been complete for a while now just waiting for me to finish vocals. Adam D has been beyond patient for me to get through what seems like many obstacles, major life changes and more time than I’d like to admit it has taken me to face my demons long enough to write.

“The lyrics on this current album we are slowly working on are the deep, painful and soul searching type that can not be forced or faked. In fact even some of my most cherished ones thus far have not been up to par and I must dig deeper and deeper to find the proper words to convey what needs to be said.

“I want to thank my brother and musical soul mate Adam for his undying patience and sheer belief in my abilities. Even in times when I’ve doubted if I have enough snuff to keep up with his incredible drive and talent he has graciously reminded me I am worthy. I would also like to thank the 3rd official member of this project @holycrapzombies for his seriously amazing skills as a drummer and musician. He has been a close friend of ours since we toured with him as our drummer. He sounds absolutely phenomenal on this album! He had completed his drum parts over a year ago now and has been patiently waiting for the completion of vocals. Continue reading »

After some incredible teasers that aroused curiosity in their audience, the Curitibana band Doomsday Hymn finally releases their new work. The song called ‘Sozinho’ (Alone) brings a clip that features almost a short film with a story that catches the viewer by surprise and prepares him for future videos.

The band has revealed that the video is a small sample of a much larger story they intend to tell on their next album yet to be released.

The video can be seen below.

Doomsday Hymn was founded in late 2013 by Gil Lopes in Curitiba after a few conversations with drummer Jarlisson Jaty, who helped form the group. To complete the quintet were invited guitarists Roney Lopes and Karim Serri, along with Fernando Frogel on bass, in which they recorded the first self-titled EP. The release featured three visceral stones with excellent riffs and a weight that would become characteristic in DDH. Continue reading »

Switzerland’s Cellar Darling have firmly made the prog scene their home with their latest album, “The Spell.” The concept album tells the haunting story of a girl who falls in love with death through 13 chapters of powerful music and the unmistakable voice of Anna Murphy.

Last weekend, the trio received a prestigious Progressive Music Award for video of the year with one of the chapters of that tale, ‘Insomnia’, thus further solidifying the band in the world of progressive rock and progressive metal. This year’s Prog Awards took place at the legendary Shakespeare’s Globe in London and saw the likes of YES, Dream Theatrer and Nick Mason strolling among the guests.

The band comments: “We are super grateful to Prog magazine for the support they’ve given us from day one, for the award, and for the amazing night. It was an unbelievable honour to walk across the same stage as the likes of Nick Mason, Dream Theater and many other incredible artists. Thank you Costin Chioreanu for the amazing work on the video. Most importantly though, THANK YOU to our amazing, unbelievable fans who voted for us and made this possible!” Continue reading »
