OCTOBER TIDE - New Track "I, The Polluter"

Sweden's melodic death/doom metal masters OCTOBER TIDE, feat. ex-Katatonia guitarists Fredrik and Mattias Norrman, premiere the first single from their upcoming, sixth studio album, "In Splendor Below".

The album is set to be released on May 17th worldwide via Agonia Records, while the new track titled "I, The Polluter" is available for listening at this link: https://youtu.be/dQWHmcCE-PU

With a history tracing back to the epicentre of melodic death metal in Sweden, OCTOBER TIDE have come a long way and have generated a spark that is strongly felt in the energy of the scene. "In Splendor Below" is the latest addition to their vibrant discography of guitar-driven, emotive death/doom metal art. It packs some of the most authentic and unique compositions from the capable hands of founding member and long-time Katatonia guitarist, Fredrik Norrman, his brother and guitarist Mattias Norrman (ex-Katatonia), vocalist Alexander Högbom (Demonical), bassist Johan Jönsegård (Letters From The Colony) and drummer Jonas Sköld (Letters From The Colony / Thenighttimeproject). While Fredrik prefers for the music to speak for itself, he finds the new album "a bit more aggressive, a bit more death metal, and with an overall colder feeling than previous records".

"In Splendor Below" album was mixed and mastered by Karl Daniel Lidén at Tri-Lamd studios (Bloodbath, Katatonia, Breach, Craft). It was produced by Alexander Backlund from Nailvillage Studio (Thenighttimeproject / Letters From Colony) and OCTOBER TIDE. Tomarum av Christine Linde created the cover artwork.

USURPER - New Songstream 'Warlock Moon'

Chicago’s USURPER have unleashed another song from their upcoming comeback album "Lords of the Permafrost"!

“Warlock Moon” is now streaming at this location: https://youtu.be/jnK7k6PKMio

Mastermind Rick Scythe comments on the track: "Warlock Moon is a speed metal anthem that balances unrelenting, maniacal, riffage with fist-banging, barbarian power - which made it the perfect choice for the opener to side B of our new album, "Lords of the Permafrost". This song sounds like it could have been a lost track from our 1999 album, "Skeletal Season" - stripped-down, unpretentious, and 100% hard! Cram this molten slab of metal into your ear-holes, and prepare for a neck-breaking frenzy!"

"Warlock Moon" is the third single of USURPER’s sixth full-length which will be out on Soulseller Records on March 22nd, 2019.

ORIGIN - New Anniversary Album "Abiogenesis - A Coming Into Existence" - First Single available

Iconic, American, technical death metallers ORIGIN will release their anniversary album "Abiogenesis - A Coming Into Existence" on May 3rd worldwide via Agonia Records.

Revisit the origins of ORIGIN with the new single "Mind Asylum": the pre-ORIGIN era, never-before released track! The single is available at this link, and comes with a video made by David Hall: https://youtu.be/vCrnou_gmtA

"Abiogenesis - A Coming Into Existence" was recorded and recreated from the original 1991-1996 era that preceded ORIGIN's official formation. The album features never-before released tracks, that laid foundations to one of America's top death metal purveyors. The tracks on "Abiogensis" were recreated to the best of his ability, by founding ORIGIN member & mastermind Paul Ryan, who recorded all instruments himself, between 2013 and 2018.

The twelve-track album includes eighth new (previously unreleased) tracks from the pre-ORIGIN period, spanning from the "Necrotomy" (1990-1991) to "Thee Abomination" (1992-1993) era of the band (the "Abiogenesis" part of the album). They're followed by a remastered version of ORIGIN's first ever EP from 1998 (and first ever death metal recording to use the "gravity blast" drumming technique) as a special bonus re-release for all ORIGIN fans & album collectors ("A Coming Into Existence" part). This EP was never available for worldwide release before.

Paul comments: "Over the years people have asked me how Origin just came to be as a band so ferocious virtually out of nowhere. This is a small summary of the Origins of Origin. Basically, I spent a lot of my youth at shows at the outhouse practicsng garage grinding, basement blasting & shed shredding anywhere I️ could, composing as what my father would call 'Infernal Racket' as I was very passionate about death metal. That's all I ever wanted to do. A lot of missed opportunities as we just couldn't put it together into making a album (some music was meant to be underground), so these tracks are some of my earliest creations from the Necrotomy (1990-1991) & Thee Abomination (1992-1993) period".

The "Abiogenesis" album was written between 1990 and 1993 and recorded between 2013 and 2018. David Nollac took care of the tracking at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco (Ca), with final mix and master done by long-time ORIGIN collaborator, Robert Rebeck. The latter remastered "A Coming Into Existence" bonus EP in 2018, for the needs of this release. The bonus EP was originally recorded and mixed at Mercy Studios in Lawrence (Kansas) by said Robert Rebeck, back in 1998. The "Abiogenesis" cover artwork features a photo of the "Pillars of Creation" from the new advanced Hubble space telescope.
