SEPTAGON - New Album 'Apocalyptic Rhymes' in November

German power-thrash hybrid SEPTAGON will release their sophomore album, “Apocalyptic Rhymes” on November 9th, 2018 via Cruz Del Sur Music. The follow-up to 2016’s “Deadhead Syndicate” was recorded across a variety of studios with the band opting to produce the album themselves.

Songwriting for “Apocalyptic Rhymes” began shortly after SEPTAGON started playing shows in support of “Deadhead Syndicate”. The result, as guitarist Markus “Ulle” Ullrich (also of LANFEAR and THEM) tells it, is a more focused and catchier album: “When the music for the debut was written, there was no band at all. This time, it was more of a collective work. Except for one track, I wrote all the music for the last album while our second guitarist Stef [Binnig-Gollub] now also brought in some ideas and songs. The production for the album took a bit longer than we expected, otherwise we would have released it sooner. But, we are very pleased with the results.”

SEPTAGON (who are rounded out by vocalist Markus Becker, bassist Alexander Palma and drummer Jürgen “General” Schrank) are arguably neither a true thrash nor power metal band, rather, a seamless blend of the two, whereupon punchy, but anthemic songs are born. With the powerful throat of Becker (also of ATLANTEAN KODEX) out front, SEPTAGON presents a fresh take on two of metal’s most familiar genres. According to Ullrich, SEPTAGON thrives off of this balance.

“When SEPTAGON started, I really wanted to keep it old-school with a nice mixture of speed and thrash and some U.S. vibes in the riffing,” he says. “Markus is a singer with a very melodic voice and I always thought that this is a nice combination. Some songs musically are pure thrash, but since we listen to all kinds of music, it happens from time to time that we come up with some ideas that lead us into a different direction. On the one hand we want to keep our roots, but there's always room for some experiments.”

Conceptually, “Apocalyptic Rhymes” presents a wide variety of topics, including literature (John Knittel’s “Via Mala” on lead single “Home, Sweet Hell”) while venturing into social commentary on “Make A Stand”, “Cosmic Outrage” and “The Weight Of The World”. However, given the current perilous nature of politics on an international scale, “P.O.T.U.S.A” is sure to raise some eyebrows.

Comments Ullrich: “It's obvious what ‘P.O.T.U.S.A.’ is about and simply because Markus lived in the U.S. for more than five years, it was something he just had to do. Some people will agree, some will probably say ‘Shut your mouth and mind your own business, you fuckin' Germans.’ I don't really care since it more and more became also ‘our’ business.”

Armed with a fresh batch of vertical, melodic and biting melodic metal, Ullrich and SEPTAGON are gearing up for another round of shows with an eye toward the future. “We’re going to take this step-by-step,” he concludes. “We want to play more shows, sell some albums and honestly, I can’t wait to write more songs for album number three.”

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.

"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.
