SENTIENT HORROR - New Track Stream "Cemetery Slaughter"
US Death Metallers SENTIENT HORROR have unleashed another song from their upcoming sophomore full-length "Morbid Realms"!
Check out "Cemetery Slaughter" at these locations: Youtube +++ Bandcamp
"Morbid Realms" will be released on November 29th, 2019 via Testimony Records (Europe) and Redefining Darkness Records (USA).
Juanjo Castellano Rosado was enlisted to bring "Morbid Realms" to life with his stunning artwork, while Dan Swanö (Unisound Studios) was in charge of the mix and mastering duties.
The opening track "Call of Ancient Gods" is streaming here: https://youtu.be/lwjc86c3_f8
Founder, vocalist and lead guitarist Matt Moliti states: "Through the writing process, 'Morbid Realms' became a much more serious, angry, mature, and aggressive sounding album than our debut, 'Ungodly Forms'. I wanted to recall the unexpected song arrangements and more complicated structures of the classic early 90s death metal albums. Lyrically, the album incorporates more otherworldly horror, inspired by authors like Clive Barker and HP Lovecraft."
Testimony Records will be offering multiple formats / variants - pre-orders: https://testimonyrecords.bigcartel.com/products
* Limited Black / Gray Swirl Vinyl (100 copies worldwide)
* Limited Black / Yellow Swirl Vinyl (150 copies worldwide)

TERRIFIANT - Deal with Gate Of Hell Records
Belgian throwback metal miscreants TERRIFIANT are the latest addition to the Gates Of Hell Records roster! The label will issue the band’s debut full-length in February 2020.
As the story goes, TERRIFIANT was formed when garrulous, rough-housing troublemaker guitarist ZZ Slop met a “mysterious sleazeball” by the name of Lord Terrifiant at a festival parking lot. The two proceeded to hash out their idea for a metal band that would commit itself to the “ways of old and forgotten metal gods of yore.” Enter TERRIFANT.
The band’s lineup was eventually rounded out in 2018 after scouring every back alley, dive bar and street corner in their native Brussels, eventually landing the services of Alcoloic (drums), SlimeValdi (guitars) and Sniffany Baggs (bass). Terrifiant, appropriately enough, found their sound by mixing the rawness of NWOBHM and early U.S. metal, along with strong nods to metal from the Far East. The result is an uncompromising offering to the metal gods backed with a “fist full of rock ‘n’ roll attitude and seriously bad intentions.”
To date, TERRIFIANT has just a self-titled demo released via Messe Noir to their credit, which can be streamed below. A seven-inch version is coming soon.

TOWER - New York City Metal Brigade joins Cruz Del Sur Music
Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the signing of New York City’s own TOWER! The band’s sophomore full-length will be released in mid 2020.
Formed in 2015, TOWER plays a brand of classic, traditional metal inspired by legends such as JUDAS PRIEST and SCORPIONS, further propelled by the imitable, almost Pat Benatar-esque vocals of Sarabeth Linden. To date, TOWER has one studio album to their credit, 2016’s self-titled, as well as this year’s “Tomorrow & Yesterday” EP.
Shortly after the release of the video for “Run For My Life”, multiple record companies came calling for TOWER, including Cruz Del Sur. What sealed the deal for TOWER and Cruz Del Sur, though, was the good word put in by some of the label’s existing bands.
“We’re close friends with Nate Honor and Jim Hunter, whose bands SANHEDRIN and TWISTED TOWER DIRE are/were on Cruz Del Sur,” says guitarist James Danzo. “We heard so many good things about Cruz that it was pretty clear from the beginning which route we should take. In the few years we’ve been a band, we’ve learned not to rush into things and to be very deliberate, but we know we made the right choice!”
TOWER will fill up the rest of 2019 with occasional live duty, but the priority remains to get ready for their forthcoming second studio album. Danzo says “lack of material has never been a problem” for TOWER: The band has three songs leftover from the “Tomorrow & Yesterday” session, as well as another cut that has already been aired live.
“Unlike the last two releases which took forever in spaced-out sessions from weekend to weekend, we plan on blocking out 7-10 days of studio time and doing it as a concise and complete project like a band would do in the old days. Onward and upward!”

TERMINUS - New Trackstream "Harvest"
Northern Ireland Metallers TERMINUS have unleashed another track of their upcoming new album "A Single Point of Light"!
"Harvest"is available at this location: https://youtu.be/w8lv-dMe3qk
Their sophomore full-length will be released on November 8th, 2019 through Cruz Del Sur Music.
Mixed and mastered by Richard Whittaker (Solstice) and with artwork created by Anaïs Mulgrew, “A Single Point of Light” represents the logical next step in the music development of multi-instrumentalist / songwriter David Gillespie and vocalist James Beattie. Their brand of twisting, sometimes complex, but always effective metal does not lend itself to one particular era or sonic reference point. Instead, TERMINUS songs are often mini-journeys onto themselves, a regular confluence of spiraling riff changes, guitar harmony duels and Beattie’s emotive vocals.
The album's opening track, "To Ash, To Dust“, is streaming here: https://youtu.be/qFYjhEQshw0
1. To Ash, To Dust
3. As Through A Child's Eyes
4. Flesh Falls From Steel
5. Mhira, Tell Me The Nature Of Your Existence
6. Cry Havoc
7. Spinning Webs, Catching Dreams

After the critically acclaimed 2018 EP "Stories From Beyond", German Death Metallers NIGHTBEARER are finally announcing their first full-length album "Tales Of Sorcery and Death"! It will be released on December 13th 2019 via Testimony Records.
Deeply inspired by the 90s Swedish scene with its brutal chainsaw sound, they took the next step and gave the songs more melodies and aggression while retaining all the trademarks of the EP, for example the catchy refrains, giving each song its own character, as well as the lyrics that range in the realm of fantasy and horror, heavily influenced by writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien, G.R.R. Martin or Stephen King. Sound and lyrics are brought to life with a stunning artwork by Juanjo Castellano Rosado.
