HAMMER KING - New Album 'Poseidon Will Carry Us Home’ in October

German true metal ensemble HAMMER KING will release their third full-length, “Poseidon Will Carry Us Home”, on October 5th 2018 via Cruz Del Sur Music. Recorded at Studio Greywolf with POWERWOLF bassist Charles Greywolf at the helm, “Poseidon Will Carry Us Home” is an unabashed bow to classic, anthemic, hook-laden metal, proving HAMMER KING was more than up to the task of meeting the often-high expectations that come with a band’s third album.

Variety abounds on “Poseidon”, with HAMMER KING engaging in strident, call-to-arms jaunts like the opening title track and “Battle Of Wars”. Twin guitar harmonies and fierce gallops highlight “7 Days And 7 Kings” and “Where The Hammer Hangs”, while the true metal call is heeded on the mid-tempo “Warriors Of Angelhill” and “Glorious Nights Of Glory”.

An album stocked with future anthems at every corner, “Poseidon Will Carry Us Home” is representative of a band now hitting its creative stride — and fully realizing it. “The studio work with Charles Greywolf is a time of sheer joy and fun, but also a highly relaxed time where everyone constantly gains power and self-confidence,” says vocalist/guitarist Titan Fox V. "I have never sung more relaxed, we have never shot more from the hip when it came to playing. But certainly, it is a very fulfilling progression starting with no songs at all and ending up with a mixed and mastered album sporting massive artwork!”

CAULDRON - New Album In September, New Song Streaming

Canadian metal trio CAULDRON will release their long-awaited fifth studio album entitled "New Gods" on September 7 through Dissonance Productions in Europe and The End Records in North America. For the follow up to their critically-acclaimed 2016 album "In Ruin", Jason Decay (lead vocals/bass), Ian Chains (guitar) and Myles Deck (drums) together with producer Chris Stringer (Timber Timbre, Wooden Sky) honed and recorded the songs at Union Sound in Toronto for what would become "New Gods". "New Gods", the group’s fifth full-length studio record, once again promises a strong emphasis on songwriting and melody, complete with high-end organic production to match.

Listen to new song "Never Be Found":soundcloud.com/dissonanceproductionsuk/cauldron-never-be-found-official-stream

“I am very proud of the songwriting, performances and production on this one, and it is definitely the most confident I have been in a finished album of ours. It is dark, it’s heavy and it has a very melodic sense of AOR. Most importantly, it still sounds very CAULDRON. I’m pretty sure people who were into In Ruin will like this one just as much if not more!” says Decay.

CAST THE STONE - "A Plague Of Light" lyric video premiere

American death/black metallers CAST THE STONE (feat. members of Misery Index, ex-Cattle Decapitation and Scour) present a lyric video for their new song "A Plague Of Light", taken from the "Empyrean Atrophy" EP. The EP is set to be released at the end of this month, on August 31st, via Agonia Records. Watch the new lyric video here:


CAST THE STONE is Mark Kloeppel (Misery Index, Scour with Phil Anselmo), Derek Engemann (ex-Cattle Decapitation, Scour), Jesse Schobel (Legend, ex-Scour) and vocalist Andrew Huskey. First formations of the band began in 2002, long before its protagonists departed for their better known metal-scene mainstays. While such ties leave a clear mark, CAST THE STONE emerge not as some metal supergroup, but as a project of the original and purest intent of its membership.

"Empyrean Atrophy" was produced by Dan Swanö (Katatonia, Merciless, Edge Of Sanity) and features cover artwork by Gary Ronaldson of Bite Radius Designs (Primordial, Kreator, Napalm Death). It includes five new, original compositions and a cover of Infestdead's "Jesusatan".

LETHEAN - UK Epic Heavy Metallers sign with Cruz Del Sur Music - Debut Album in November

UK Heavy Metal ensemble LETHEAN has inked a deal with Cruz Del Sur Music for the release of their “The Waters Of Death” debut album, which is due November 9th.

Comments founding member James Ashbey: “We’re excited to be joining Cruz Del Sur. We feel at home within their roster as so many of their releases are ones we spin regularly. We’ve long felt Cruz Del Sur would be a good match for our style of heavy metal, so we’re grateful to Enrico for putting faith in the two of us despite our relative obscurity. It’s been a pleasure so far — his reputation for professionalism and honesty is well deserved.”

Formed in Essex in late 2012, LETHEAN’s stated purpose was to combine epic metal, NWOBHM and doom, along with the lyrical ethos of mortality and time, leveraging imagery from mythology, history and literature. The band’s 2013 debut two-song demo caught the attention of Greek duo Giannis Alexandrakis (WRATHBLADE) and Michalis Bakoulas (CONVIXION) who helped LETHEAN re-record the songs at an Athens studio. However, it was not until the early 2017 addition of vocalist and co-writer Thumri Paavana that LETHEAN started to gain creative traction, sparking the creation of “The Waters Of Death”.

The album is the first product of the fledgling Seven Gates recording studio in Gothenburg, Sweden, with Jamie Elton (ex-AMULET) in the producer’s chair. Recorded in the age-old tradition with microphones in front of loud Marshalls and given an analogue mastering by Jaime Gomez (ANGEL WITCH, PARADISE LOST) of Orgone Studios, London, “The Waters Of Death” has a traditional tone that sets it apart from highly-polished contemporary metal.

The atmospheric cover artwork for “The Waters Of Death” was painted by German artist Stefan Bleyl, who has captured the album’s themes of departure and the unknown beyond while reinforcing the frequent references to water, fire and oblivion found in LETHEAN’s lyrics.

Described by Ashbey as “six solemn heavy metal songs about death, turmoil and the passage of time,” “The Waters Of Death” effortlessly skirts genre boundaries, all the while maintaining a strong sense of melancholy — a defining trait of the band. “We have found that people have struggled to draw immediate parallels between us and other bands,” he says. “Of course, there are plenty of glimpses of our influences, but hopefully these rise and fall within a sound that isn’t defined by mimicry. And while we hate the vague categorization that tends to be assigned to ‘female-fronted’ bands, our use of female vocals will undoubtedly catch new listeners off-guard, repelling some and attracting others. We like it this way; we would much rather our music polarized opinion than stirred no one.”

“The Waters Of Death” will be released via the following formats: COMPACT DISC | VINYL | DIGITAL

Idylls Of The King
In Darkness Veiled
Time And The Gods
Across Grey Waters
Devouring Fire

ANCIENT BARDS - Crowdfunding Campaign

Ancient Bards, symphonic metallers from Italy, launched a Crowdfunding campaign for the release of their fourth album “ORIGINE – The Black Crystal Sword Saga Part 2” on Monday July 2nd and they met their goal in three days.

“The support we received from the very beginning of the campaign is so incredible we’re speechless. We knew we had many loyal fans ready to back us, but we would have never dreamed for them to be this generous and trusting. We’re extremely grateful!

Our first goal was set on 17.000€ and we reached 100% of the funding in 79 hours. The sum, after all the fees, is going to cover the recordings and the promotion of what it’s going to be our most ambitious project so far.

This gratifying success has the potential of becoming even bigger, because the campaign will be live until August 12th and we set some stretch goals that would allow us get even closer to our true vision. Our next targets are: 20.000€ (which would get us the funds to make a second video clip), 25.000€ (which would unlock the video "Live from Willemeen"), and 30.000€ (which would unlock the video "Live from Wacken Open Air”).

The album is called “ORIGINE – The Black Crystal Sword Saga Part 2” and, through this campaign, we are releasing an exclusive Deluxe Edition of it that will be available only for our backers.
