WILD BEYOND - Debut Album via Gates Of Hell Records - Details and Trackstream revealed

Gates Of Hell Records is proud to announce the signing of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, blackened thrash metal outfit WILD BEYOND.

Their self-titled debut will be released on April 14th 2023 and will feature cover art from the acclaimed Adam Burke (ANGEL WITCH, ETERNAL CHAMPION, TEMPLE OF VOID). WILD BEYOND features guitarist/vocalist Edward Gonet (DAEVA, ex-INFERNAL STRONGHOLD), drummer Evan Madden (ex-WOE and WOODS OF YPRES) and bassist/keyboardist/guitarist Jimmy Viola.

The album’s opening track, "In the Footsteps of Mars", and pre-order options are available here: https://youtu.be/hn4Rw0pBWaM +++ https://wildbeyond.bandcamp.com

The idea for WILD BEYOND was born in the middle of the Covid lockdown of 2020, when Gonet impulse-purchased a Randy Rhodes Flying V guitar and started composing after five years of not playing. A year later, with songs and riffs under his belt, Gonet was introduced to Viola and Madden through SONJA drummer Grzesiek Czapla. The trio set forth to compose a full-length album pulsing with destructive cosmic majesty and street metal overtones.

“Back in the day, I used to hang flyers around the city to find musicians to play with, and you never knew who would show up at your house,” says Gonet. “There are fucking mutants all over Philadelphia. I didn’t have to do that this time. The band came together rather effortlessly.”

It wasn’t long, either, that the band fell onto the radar of Gates Of Hell Records. WILD BEYOND’s sound is influenced by the second wave of Norwegian black metal (DARKTHRONE, IMMORTAL) and early thrash (SLAYER, SODOM), with VADER and BATHORY thrown in for good measure.

“Black metal’s mysteriousness and the allure of darkness and evil made it an easy choice to pair with our love of thrash,” the band says. “We wanted to create a classic black metal record, but we also tend to play like speed demons.”

WILD BEYOND’s full length embodies the hyperactive imaginations, anxieties and aggressions of its personnel. This debut will inspire the metal legions to bang their heads, light ceremonial candles in seance, and summon malevolent forces from BEYOND.

“WILD BEYOND speaks to our classic inspirations, but I hope this record sounds like ‘us’ above all,” says Viola. “Eddie’s vocal venom and lyrics are one of a kind. Evan blasts like a battering ram, yet his drum parts are meticulously crafted. And the bass punches through like a frost-covered fist.”

BLAZON RITE - Sophomore Album ‘Wild Rites And Ancient Songs’ - Details and Trackstream revealed

Emerging Philadelphia epic metal heroes BLAZON RITE will release their second album, “Wild Rites And Ancient Songs”, on April 14th 2023 via Gates Of Hell Records.

A first trackstream, entitled "Salvage What You Can of the Night", and pre-order options are available at these locations: https://youtu.be/Nori5AQzqjQ +++ https://blazonrite.bandcamp.com

Recorded in May 2022 with Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations Studios, “Wild Rites And Ancient Songs” is the highly anticipated follow-up to the band’s masterful 2021 debut, “Endless Halls Of Golden Totem”. With scores of ears awaiting the band’s new long player, guitarist James Kirn says BLAZON RITE rose to the challenge.

“We are really grateful for everyone who supported ‘Endless Halls Of Golden Totem’ and hope we made something that people will always go back to,” he says. “The only pressure I think we felt was to deliver something different and fresh from what we’ve already presented to the world. While I think the new album isn’t a huge departure, we did some things creatively with this record that differ from our first full length and push us forward. At times, we simplified things and set out to make songs more hard-hitting and powerful. We really took our time with this album and I think it shows in the quality of the overall product.”

Comprising seven cuts that dig into the ethos and essence of what true metal should be in 2023, “Wild Rites And Ancient Songs” boats BLAZON RITE’s now patented blend of strident guitar melodies and true metal persuasiveness. However, “Wild Rites” emerges as a more direct and catchy offering than its predecessor, something Kirn says was the goal from the start.

“I just wanted to try new things and explore different moods and feelings with this new album. We leaned in so many different directions on this release. We have some traditional power and epic metal elements, some NWOBHM parts, and even folk vibes. I really just wanted to give the listener a wholly memorable experience. We tried to simplify the lyrics and vocal melodies a bit to make them more impactful and anthemic as well. I also think the tones we achieved on this record are great and new for us. I want to mention that Pierson [Roe] took the solos and leads to a new epic place this time around.”

BLAZON RITE rapidly emerged as one of the new leading faces in the American traditional metal scene. The excitement and strong press surrounding “Endless Halls” was significant — and justified. This year promises to be a busy one for the band. Playing as many shows as possible behind “Wild Rites” will be the next step on BLAZON RITE’s epic metal journey.

“We are really amped to hear what everyone thinks of this new album and hopefully, the word spreads even more about us,” closes Kirn. “I think people will appreciate the polish and the development we’ve put on this album. Hopefully, we can get some buzz about the album and play some cool shows with some good lineups.”

HERETOIR - Fatigue 2022 - Official Track Premiere

AOP Records proudly presents a remastered reissue of HERETOIR’s self-titled debut album, to be released on February 10th 2023.

"Fatigue 2022" feat. Tobias Schuler on drums / Der Weg einer Freiheit - Official Track Premiere: https://youtu.be/r3aHUXraqyo

Combining the emotional and atmospheric elements of Black Metal with progressive rhythm-laden modern Metal structures and the beauty of Post Rock and Shoegaze, HERETOIR is a nostalgic, melancholic and soothing soundtrack in a mad world. Founded (in Augsburg/Germany) by David C. in 2006, HERETOIR conceptually and lyrically deals with existence, self-reflection, fears and dreams – life in all its facets. It is a musical universe set for the discovery of one’s deepest thoughts and the soul that rests in each of us…

The band states: "We recorded this album almost 15 years ago. So much has happened since then, but we feel very connected to these songs and they still mean a lot to us. The intense atmosphere, the eerie sense of loss and melancholy that this record conveys fits perfectly into the world of today. We live in urban wastelands and are surrounded by more and more isolated people who are increasingly losing touch with everything. It is hard to find some hope in these days dominated by stories of war, ecocide and solastalgia, yet many people tell us that they have found a glimmer of hope, a small portion of positivity within these songs, which are dark and bleak, but also offer some relief, some light in the darkness. That is why we decided that this record, which means so much to so many, deserves a proper remaster that on the one hand preserves the spirit of the original tracks, but on the other hand is accompanied by two re-recorded songs that in a way show the changes we have gone through as human beings and as musicians.

The future may look bleak, but all is not lost yet. This record was and is still dedicated to those who feel. - Heretoir, 2022"

CONDENADOS - New Single / Video Clip 'Mi Maldición' revealed

"Mi Maldición" is the second single of CONDENADOS’ third album "El Camino de la Serpiente", set to be released on February 10th 2023 through Evil Confrontation Records on CD and Digital.

You can check out the new video clip from these Chilean Doom Rockers here: https://youtu.be/NIIlezoQUkU

This song is inspired by the traditional sound of 70s Blues Rock, in the likes of Pappo, Días de Blues, Wicked Lady, Sir Lord Baltimore, Pentagram, with contemporary sound and concept.

Fernando Vidal, Vocals and Guitar player comments: "The lyrics in Spanish work on different levels of perception, just like this videoclip does, since it deals with both boredom in the mundane life of a simple man, within a system in decay, and at the same time, it is a cry for light in the midst of darkness when referring to "the serpent", an esoteric symbol that represents the true essence of inner knowledge. This snake emerges from its lethargy to its ecstasy as the music changes until it becomes a powerful song of physical and spiritual liberation."

Drummer Matias Moreno comments: "This videoclip is a journey through what is known as "the dark night of the soul", the final twist that any person who wants to become self-aware must experience. This internal process called "The work of the shadows" is defined as becoming fully aware of our inner darkness to finally experience the final death of the ego trap that stands between what you think you are and what you really are. In the words of the master Carl Gustav Jung “It is not possible to awaken consciousness without pain. People are capable of doing anything, however absurd it may seem, to avoid facing their own soul. No one illuminates by imagining figures of light, but by making their darkness conscious. For me, the mind has always been a fascinating subject and from there emerges this concept that mixes regular life reality, internal mental conflict and a subconscious abstract world. Regarding the production itself, everything is 100% handmade with great friends help who have accompanied us at different times in our lives, it is a very special and personal video for us."

Fernando Vidal adds: "Trying to capture the different mental planes in a video clip is not easy, and if this tries to capture a feeling within a song it becomes even more complex, however, in this videoclip we made it possible, this is the journey towards the deepest human darkness where all the animal and visceral forces that makes us human lie. At the same time, we showcase the materialistic human face in relation to the lyrics. The inspiration comes from the experiences with life itself, from a deep reflection that makes the trip become more and more intense until reaching the climax that goes according to the music itself. It is an invitation to enter the depths of the human psyche, leaving all fears behind."
