IN TWILIGHT’S EMBRACE - New album 'Lawa' out now
Polish Black-Deathers IN TWILIGHT’S EMBRACE have unleashed a special release - “Law” is out now!
Released by the band in cooperation with Left Hand Sounds a year after the lauded fourth full-length “Vanitas”, “Lawa” is yet another step into the sonic realm of Metal Śmierci, a rift between the fundamental principles of black and death metal, yet this time taken even further, into more atmospheric, idiosyncratic and surreal directions. It’s an exorcism, during which the spirits are unbound into a November night and dance among the living. Come, join the celebration of the weird!
The complete album is available for streaming at this location: https://youtu.be/A21fbU3Br84
CD and digital versions are available here: https://intwilightsembrace.bandcamp.com
LP release will follow in early spring 2019.
The band states: “In the evening of Forefathers' Eve or All Saints’ Day to others, we are one with our Dead. To honor them and to communicate with the netherworlds, we unleash “Lawa”, a work of music and word meant to mark the significance of this very day in the culture of our homeland. Sung entirely in Polish, “Lawa” captures what we think is the essence of the Polish spirit: a boiling mixture of insane passion, belief in the supernatural, death worship and dwelling on the past. Drawing inspiration from both the famous poetic drama “Dziady” ("Forefathers' Eve") by Adam Mickiewicz and its psychedelic movie rendition “Lawa” (1989) by Tadeusz Konwicki, the new work of In Twilight's Embrace is the proof that romantic traditions are still the cornerstone of Poland’s DNA and cultural paradigm. For better or worse. Or bitter, if you will.”

WHILE HEAVEN WEPT - 'Vast Oceans Lachrymose' Lineup To Embark On 'Farewell' European Dates
In early 2015, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT mainman Tom Phillips had to regrettably pull the plug on the band’s European tour in support of their latest studio album, “Suspended At Aphelion”. The decision led to Phillips’ unexpected retirement from the metal scene, effectively putting the revered doomsters on ice. However, Phillips and his bandmates have long sought to make amends to the European crowds who have so strongly backed WHILE HEAVEN WEPT over the years. Now, as 2018 draws to a close, the most recent incarnation of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT that started with 2009’s classic “Vast Oceans Lachrymose” will play its final shows together on a run of European dates that begins November 16 at Germany’s Hammer Of Doom festival.
“I agreed to do these shows to give everyone else — the band members, our fans, even myself some closure, especially since the last tour was cancelled,” says Phillips. “The other aspect is the circumstances and priorities of the musicians involved are simply not aligned with what an actively touring band requires anymore.”
The “Vast Oceans Lachrymose” lineup — rounded out by bassist Jim Hunter, vocalist Rain Irving, second guitarist Scott Loose, keyboardist/harmony vocalist Michelle Schrotz and drummer Trevor Schrotz — have been holed up in a Virginia rehearsal room putting together a setlist that is not only representative of the latest era of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, but the band’s storied past as well. According to Phillips, some of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT’s most memorable shows have taken place on European shores, including their 2010 appearance at Hammer Of Doom alongside Irish metallers PRIMORDIAL, which was not only Irving’s third show with the band, but also where the “Triumph: Tragedy: Transcendence” DVD/live album was recorded.
While these European dates signal the end for the “Vast Oceans Lachrymose” era of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, it does not mean the end for the band. Phillips says there is an entire album of unfinished material that sits between “Fear Of Infinity” and “Suspended At Aphelion” in which he may look to finalize at some point.
WHILE HEAVEN WEPT 2018 European tour dates:
November 16 – Hammer Of Doom, Würzburg, Germany
November 18 – Temple, Athens, Greece
November 24/25 – Dutch Doom Days, Baroeg, Rotterdam, Netherlands
December 7 – Under The Doom VI, LAV Lisboa ao Vivo, Lisbon, Portugal
December 8 – Madrid Is The Dark, Madrid, Spain
SULPHUR AEON - Album Cover & Video revealed
German Death Metal Giants SULPHUR AEON announce their new album!
"The Scythe Of Cosmic Chaos" - to be released during winter's solstice, the 21st of December, 2018 via Ván Records on double vinyl record, compact disc and via the known digital channels.
And here's the 1st appetizer: https://youtu.be/yXr-8BUX4X0
"Yuggothian Spell" is the climax of Lovecraft's "Haunter of the Dark" set to music, as simple as that. Underlined by the song's constant change between storming riffs and an almost doomy pace, it represents the protagonists' descent into madness, in manic fear of what stares at him from the darkness of that ruined church, where he accidentally summoned the ancient evil, haunting him now.
SULPHUR AEON & CHAPEL OF DISEASE - Album Release Show
Location: COLOGNE, Club Volta / Date: 22.12.2018

ICHOR - New Album 'Hadal Ascending' - Details revealed
Ghouls and Gorgons! Sirens are calling!
German Death Metallers ICHOR return with their fourth full-length entitled "Hadal Ascending"! The album will be released on 7th December 2018 via Unholy Conspiracy Deathwork (CD, digital) and Wooaaargh Records (vinyl).
"Hadal Ascending" delivers ICHOR’s known blend of US Death Metal influenced guitar work and freezing cold Black Metal parts, yet offers more variation and dynamics then ever before.
Thematically it links to the band’s previous albums "Benthic Horizon" and "Depths" as the fictional story of a devastated and hate-filled deep-sea world full of creatures and mystical beings continues.
"Hadal Ascending" was recorded, mixed and mastered in Hertz Studio / Poland (Behemoth, Hate, Decapitated, Vader). The cover artwork was painted by Par Olofsson (Aborted, The Faceless, Immortal) and Mentalporn (Origin, Immolation, Hate, Behemoth) graced the album with an elaborate layout.
