KILLING - New Video & Single "Kill Everyone"

Today, the new video and single from the young thrashing Danes KILLING is unleashed unto the world! "Kill Everyone" fulfills its promise with a murderous riff, a thrashing rhythm assault, and genuine youth energy that separates the world-class thrash bands from the rest. And it completes the pack with a - literally - killer video.

"Kill Everyone" is taken from KILLING's debut album "Face The Madness", probably the best Danish thrash metal record since "Excursion Demise" by Invocator and "By Inheritance" from Artillery.

The track can be streamed and download via this link. The video has premiered via Decibel Magazine, Deaf Forever (for Germany), and Devilution (for Denmark).


The vicious monster of energy KILLING comes from east Jutland, Denmark. Formed late 2013, with the sole purpose of writing uncompromising thrash metal, as in the good old days. Inspiration is drawn from the golden era of the genre, where bands like Slayer, Exodus, Kreator, and Metallica ruled the stage with an iron fist.

After years of concerts and songwriting, they released the 2018 critically acclaimed EP "Toxic Asylum", which was followed by a longer tour around northern Europe. The following year, the single "Raise Your Anger" was released, which was followed by a long series of festival performances.

The many shows has proven their worth, as the east Jutland quartet on stage create an intense and engaging vibe, that echoes long after the lights go out. Due to Covid, the winter/spring tour of 2020 had to be cancelled. This meant the band could focus their strength towards recording their debut album “Face The Madness” with Jacob Bredahl, in Dead Rat Studio.

"Face The Madness" will be released in digital, LP, and CD formats by Mighty Music on 13th August 2021.

PHARAOH - New Lyric Video - "Lost In The Waves"

Long-running American metallers PHARAOH, featuring vocalist Tim Aymar, guitarist Matt Johnsen, bassist Chris Kerns and drummer Chris Black, have premiered a first song from their upcoming new album "The Powers That Be".

A lyric video for "Lost In The Waves" is available at this location: https://youtu.be/K_3PxoQgvtA

The band's first studio album in nine years will be released on June 18th 2021 via Cruz Del Sur Music.

Guest appearances include longtime friend and frequent collaborator Jim Dofka (DOFKA) and a new face to PHARAOH, VOIVOD’s Daniel Mongrain.

The album’s lyrics were written during one of America’s most tumultuous periods in recent memory. The pandemic, coupled with a volatile political situation, served as fodder for PHARAOH, who have been tackling matters of politics since 2006’s full-length "The Longest Night".

2. Will We Rise
3. Waiting To Drown

BLAZON RITE - New Album "Endless Halls Of Golden Totem" via Gates Of Hell Records

Philadelphia primal epic metallers BLAZON RITE will release their first full-length, “Endless Halls Of Golden Totem” this June via Gates Of Hell Records. The album was recorded from mid-December 2020 to January 2021 at guitarist James Kirn’s home studio. Richie Rabid served as engineer, while Will Mellor handled mixing and master duties. The album will feature hand-painted cover artwork from Matt Stikker.

Due to the global pandemic, BLAZON RITE, who also include vocalist Johnny Halladay, bassist Pierson Roe and drummer Ryan Haley, employed some ingenuity to record. The band created isolation booths in Kirn’s basement, resulting in a more polished, triumphant effort that takes BLAZON RITE beyond their well-received 2020 “Dulce Bellum Inexpertis” EP.

“The recording process took a while because we were only doing it on the weekends and really taking our time with tones,” says Kirn. “It was fun because we were documenting ourselves in some of the sessions with pictures and videos, which we've never done before!”

The band’s inspiring blend of NWOBHM and European power metal ala BLIND GUARDIAN and HELLOWEEN is even more realized on “Endless Halls Of Golden Totem”. According to Kirn, the album’s eight tracks benefit from more focused songwriting. But, unlike the “Dulce Bellum Inexpertis” EP, it is not a concept record.

“I think we have a lot of variety from song-to-song vibe-wise and really provide a nice journey for the listener,” he says. “From power metal and traditional epic heavy metal to acoustic LED ZEPPELIN parts and Viking influenced metal, I think we really give a lot on this full-length. Each song is a whole story within itself.”

ATTACKER - American Metal Legends join Cruz Del Sur Music

Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the signing of American metal legends ATTACKER! The label will release the band’s next studio album sometime in 2022.

Originally formed in 1983, ATTACKER burst onto the scene with their 1985 debut, “Battle At Helm’s Deep”, an LP many consider to be one of the first pure American power metal albums. The band released “The Second Coming” in 1988 before splitting the next year. ATTACKER returned in 2001 and has since released four additional studio albums and one EP, the latest being 2018’s “Armor Of The Gods” EP.

ATTACKER made contact with Cruz Del Sur Music through a mutual friend of the band and the label. “We corresponded for a few months and struck a deal for the next ATTACKER album,” says drummer and founding member Mike Sabatini. “We are looking forward to this new partnership!”

In related news, vocalist Bobby Lucas has since rejoined ATTACKER. According to Sabatini, a conversation about the recent “Godzilla Vs. Kong” movie got the two men talking about working together again, and, more importantly, what a strong unit they are. Vocalist Ski, who appeared on the recent “Spiritual Warfare” single, had recently informed the band that he did not have the time needed to fully commit to ATTACKER.

“With all the stuff the world has gone through the last year and still going through, we all grew in our understanding of what’s important and what’s not important,” says Sabatini. “It’s definitely a nice feeling. Bobby truly is the best voice for this band. Add to that how excited we all are for new beginnings working with Cruz Del Sur and it makes life that much sweeter. The band and I are very much looking forward to continuing work on the new album material for a 2022 release”

ATTACKER plans on concluding the writing process for their next studio album by the end of the summer. The band will then enter Bandmother Recording in Jersey City, New Jersey, with Sabatini handling engineering duties. “The new material will have more diversity,” he says. “Brian Smith [bass] and Jon Hasselbrink [guitar] have contributed music for the very first time. Mike Benetatos [guitar] had written most of the last few albums so the injection of different ideas will add some new flavor to our sound. Mike is a little more of a technical writer whereas Brian and Jon’s material adds a little more old-school classic feel which is where we all came from musically. I think fans of the band will be pleased.”

Active for nearly four decades, ATTACKER has long been a staple of the American power metal scene. They also remain a highly-respected cult act in Europe, something that continues to drive them to this day.

“We were fortunate to have come up when the metal explosion was happening and be part of this great thing that occurred and is still occurring,” says Sabatini. “Heavy metal and hard rock is the music that speaks to me and resonates within me. Listening to the classic metal bands that got me on my path still sends chills up my spine — those types of feelings and love for this music are what keeps me and the band going. Music is in our blood, hearts and souls.

“Another big aspect is the great people we have met since reforming. We honestly had no idea what the bands’ early works meant until going to Europe and hearing from the fans. It was very humbling as we never imagined the impact ATTACKER and other underground ‘80s bands had. I should totally understand it since so many underground bands were part of my introduction to metal back in the early days. We don’t do it for a living — we’re more like weekend warriors. But hey, some people play golf, we’ll play metal until we physically cannot!"

THE FLIGHT OF SLEIPNIR - "Eventide" Album Announcement - Details & Trackstream

Sonic alchemists THE FLIGHT OF SLEIPNIR have premiered a first track from their highly anticipated seventh album, "Eventide", set for international release on May 28th 2021 via Eisenwald.

Check out "Thaw" at these locations: Invsible Oranges +++ Metal.de

Arguably THE FLIGHT OF SLEIPNIR's starkest and sparsest work to date, "Eventide" is an audial rumination on the vast mysteries of nighttime. Its cover depiction of the stars and nightingale are visual springboards for where THE FLIGHT OF SLEIPNIR whisk the listener into the sprawling beyond of sleep and darkness, of dreams and impossibility; "Eventide"'s artwork suitably keeps apace with the band's continually elegant standards of visual presentation, always delivered by founding drummer/vocalist David Csisely. With the opening notes inviting the listener forward with a brave sense of warmth, the album begins building patient vistas of splendor, tension, and release.

Always moving in a most labyrinthine manner, THE FLIGHT OF SLEIPNIR's strident density is ably balanced by the band's exploration of dynamics, here on "Eventide" allowing for an even-greater emphasis on simmering softness - and the results are beautiful, breathtaking, and absolutely cathartic. Their ensemble playing is simply astounding: this is the work of a true BAND, of master musicians putting their considerable instrumental expertise to endlessly evocative use in service of The Song...and yes, The Muse.

UNGFELL - New Album "Es garuert" via Eisenwald - Trackstream available

Swiss UNGFELL proudly present a new song entitled "Tyfels Antlitz". The track is the first to be revealed from the band's highly anticipated third album, "Es grauet", set for international release on April 30th 2021 via Eisenwald.


Switzerland's UNGFELL have established themselves as an unstoppable force of intricate yet undeniably immersive riff fury in a scene that frequently replaces memorable songwriting with pseudo-intellectual gibberish. Affiliated with the formidable Helvetic Underground Committee, UNGFELL has provided the unsuspecting masses with music that is undeniably engaging and yet challenging, delving into local lore and legends with a depth and a knack for wit that is rarely seen in contemporary extreme metal music.

On their third full-length album, "Es grauet", UNGFELL abducts listeners on a sonic journey detailing moral ambivalence and treachery. Set in a seemingly idyllic rural village in pre-modern times, all is not as it seems. Tragedy strikes the town in the form of a horrific, grisly murder. Unfounded accusations lead the town further astray, while these occurrences of debauchery exceed the comprehension of the local inhabitants. Alas, evil lurks where you may least expect it... The story unfolds, accompanied by ravaging riffs and gripping songwriting that appropriately underline the complex-yet-harrowing narrative. Es grauet shows Ungfell at their most ambitious and most audacious, featuring incredibly dynamic and warm production values, emphasizing atmosphere even more than previous releases and managing to complement the story being told.

1. Es grauet überm Dorf (Wie s niemert het chönne ahne)
2. Tyfels Antlitz (Wie e Huerä zwei Chind empfanget)
3. D Schwarzamslä (Wie us däne Goofe Pfaffä wärdet)
4. Mord im Tobel (Wie en hinterhältige Mord begange wird)
5. S Chnochelied (Wie e Beschuldigti gfoltered wird und Visione bechunnt)
6. Stossgebätt (Wie das Wyb als Häx hygrichtet wird)
7. D Unheilspfaffä vom Heinzäbärg (Wie Tod und Verdärbe uf das Dorf iistürzt)
8. S Fälsebräche (Wie s Böse begrabe wird)
