TERAMAZE - New Album "Flight Of The Wounded" in October 2022 - New Video Clip "Gold" revealed
Melbourne, Australia-based progressive metal band TERAMAZE have premiered their latest video for their brand new single "Gold".
You can check it out here: https://youtu.be/uDjmz2jVsBw
The animated video was created by Wayne Joyner who’s worked with bands such as Dream Theater, Alter Bridge or Devin Townsend.
Lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Dean Wells commented on the single by saying: “The song ‘Gold’ was the 1st piece of music we wrote from our latest album ‘Flight of the Wounded’. We actually wrote it shortly after releasing our 7th album ‘I Wonder’, back in 2020. The whole ‘I Wonder’ album dealt with very heavy subject matter, as the world was in chaos and everyone was having to face their own personal demons. I wanted to write something that was positive and hopeful. ‘Gold’ came together very quickly around late 2020… unfortunately it never seemed to fit on any of the other two albums we released in 2021. It really pissed off our drummer Nick cause he loved that song haha! Lucky for us, we write A TONNE of music and had enough material by mid 2022 to release another album (Flight of the Wounded’), that ‘Gold’ happens to fit perfectly on. As usual, fans can expect cool riffs, solos, epic orchestration and vocal hooks that get stuck in your ear. It’s one of my favourite tracks we’ve ever written as a band and I cannot wait to perform this one live!”
TERAMAZE’s 10th studio album "Flight Of The Wounded" will be released on October 6th 2022 via Wells Music.

KAMPFAR - New Single 'Flammen fra Nord' & Album Pre-Order
Norwegian Black Metallers KAMPFAR have released another new single, entitled "Flammen fra Nord".
You can check out the video clip here: https://youtu.be/0ubGju_wodw ; the track is also available on all streaming platforms: https://orcd.co/flammenfranord
"A horse in the distance, rider atop in lavishly coloured garb, enters the valley. He calls himself a shepherd, a collector for the ones above. Singing to himself in a foreign tongue, the calm melody betrays the fire beneath his words. He is here to save and to be saved; he is the word, and the word is him. 'Flammen fra Nord' tells this story through two voices, a story depicting the alchemic reaction that arises when the one true flame tries to replace nature's ancient fire."
To coincide with the single announcement, the pre-orders for KAMPFAR's upcoming full-length album "Til klovers takt", to be released on November 11th 2022, have been launched: https://shop.indierecordings.no/search?q=til%20klovers%20takt
KAMPFAR is one of the original Norwegian Black Metal acts. Approaching 30 years of existence and having grown to become one of extreme music’s premier live outfits KAMPFAR prevails and continue to be a force to be reckoned with. Releasing key albums that have both dominated and contributed to form the modern black metal scene as we know it today.

DAEVA - Debut Album "Through Sheer Will And Black Magic..." via 20 Buck Spin - Details & Trackstream
Philadelphia’s Black-Thrashers DAEVA, featuring several members of Crypt Sermon, have announced their debut full-length, entitled "Through Sheer Will And Black Magic..."!
The album will be released on October 14th 2022 via 20 Buck Spin on CD, LP, MC and digitally. It was produced, mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Gravesend, Dream Unending, Eternal Champion, Power Trip, Kreator) and is garnished with a rare painting style artwork by Karmazid.
A first track, "Arena at Dis", can be checked out at these locations: https://youtu.be/8n3hh6g3BuM +++ https://20buckspin.bandcamp.com/album/through-sheer-will-and-black-magic
The band states: "As the darkness draws near, storied warriors enter the battleground to fight for Satan's favor. Enter the fire! This is the Arena at Dis!"
Five years on from the wantonly indecent 20 Buck Spin-released debut EP "Pulsing Dark Absorptions", Philadelphia’s DAEVA rise like blistering flames from the hellish depths with the long-smoldering first album. A fiery maelstrom of early demonic Black Metal and jagged edge Thrash convulsions forms the inherent basis of the album, where DAEVA have perfected their art like gleaming forged steel. Within this blueprint for madness guitarist Steve Jansson imposes a deliberate brandishing of Death Metal’s maggot strewn corpse and a vigorously lethal dose of pure 80s metal spirit and zeal. The journey through these scorched wastelands persistently guided by the venomously inventive acid-tongue of vocalist Edward Gonet. Song after song, riff after riff "Through Sheer Will And Black Magic..." is an insatiable and unstoppable whirlwind of unearthly pleasures and infernal butchery. Storming the gates of heaven with voracious exhilaration DAEVA inflict the ultimate triumph of hell upon the feeble sheep of the light.

KERBEROS - 'Murder the Immortal' - Lyric Video available
Swiss Symphonic Death Metallers KERBEROS have revealed another song from their upcoming debut full-length, "Of Mayhem and Dismay".
"Murder the Immortal", the second single, is accompanied by a lyric video created by B2crea. Musically, the song is one of the most furious tracks on the album while being very progressive at the same time. It also features the most dense amount of singing since vocals are present almost throughout the whole song. Therefore, it seemed like the natural choice for a lyric video. The videographer (B2crea) had a great understanding for the important concepts of the song and successfully brought them to life in his video. It definitely adds to the experience of the song beyond the aspect of simply visualizing the lyrics.
You can check out the video/track at these locations: https://youtu.be/fRkTmtyrq5U +++ https://kerberosband.bandcamp.com/track/murder-the-immortal
"Of Mayhem and Dismay" was recorded, mixed and mastered by Christoph Brandes at Iguana Studios, Germany.
It will be self-released on CD and digitally on September 16th, 2022.

SONJA - Debut Album "Loud Arriver" via Cruz Del Sur Music - Details and Video Clip revealed
Trad metal power trio SONJA, featuring former Absu guitarist Melissa Moore, have announced their debut full-length album!
"Loud Arriver" will be released on September 23rd 2022 via Cruz Del Sur Music. It was recorded at Creep Recording Studio in Philadelphia by Dan Kishbaugh and Arthur Rizk.
SONJA have just premiered the first single, "Nylon Nights", accompanied by a video clip directed by Zev Deans:
https://youtu.be/VPk2bB5SQcE +++ https://sonjaband.bandcamp.com/album/loud-arriver
Melissa states: "Danger and Desire keep me alive. Possibly the most accurate lyric I’ve ever written. That’s how we ended up in these Nylon Nights. Cis luxuries like “safety” and “stability” have no meaning here. That numbness you feel spreading through you deeper than you thought you went? That’s not going away. That’s you now. Find us. We’ll be playing in the ruins… we are waiting"
Melissa Moore was fired from Texas black metallers Absu in 2017. When she came out as transgender to her bandmates, she figured she would have their support in this most vulnerable moment of her life. Instead, every member of Absu but one shunned her. Moore was dismissed via text message under the claim she had "fired herself" with "her decision".
Undeterred by the collapse of Absu, Moore and Absu touring drummer Grzesiek Czapla (the lone member of the band who supported her transition) set in motion to activate SONJA, a project they started in 2014. Bassist Ben Brand eventually joined the fold, cementing a three-piece lineup that eschews traditional subgenres for a nuanced, hook-laden, passionate and powerful display of heavy rock/metal.
"Loud Arriver" marks the first time that Moore has released a full-length album in ten years and also marks her debut as lead vocalist. It is a cathartic event for Moore: A lot of the music she wrote in that period is now lost due to the adverse circumstances surrounding her gender, but SONJA forged ahead. The global pandemic exacerbated the wait to release "Loud Arriver" but allowed Moore and her bandmates to put additional energy into the album under the concept of "go big or go home".
Indeed, "Loud Arriver" is stacked with big, anthemic songs fitting Moore’s impassioned vocal delivery and punctuating guitar work. Through the deft use of minor, melodic-minor and harmonic keys, Moore’s guitar-playing channels an atmosphere of urgency and abandon, reflecting the tumultuous period of her transition where hostility and fear greeted her at every corner. Moore’s lyrics delve further into these topics, addressing the period she lived her life in secret and self-suppression that led to sorrow and dissociation. And her lyrics also touch upon her desire to retaliate upon those who threaten her very existence for being transgender.

RIOT CITY - New Album "Electric Elite" via No Remorse Records - Details & Pre-order
Canada's RIOT CITY have announced their highly anticipated sophomore full-length!
"Electric Elite" will be released on October 14th 2022 via No Remorse Records on CD, vinyl and as a box set.
It was recorded by Antony Blaine at AB Studios in Calgary, Alberta / Canada, mixed by Olof Wikstrand and mastered by Bart Gabriel. The cover artwork was created by Daniel Charles.
Following the praised debut "Burn The Night" (2019), RIOT CITY hold on to their ripping and screaming heavy metal but also go one step further with the addition of US and power metal elements to their JUDAS PRIEST-and-NWOBHM-inspired sound. The band's musicianship has evolved even more and everything has been worked out in every single detail, keeping at the same time their passion for music. Beside a strong vibe of originality, "Electric Elite" brings in mind the magic of classic '80s metal records. Once you listen to the new album, you can understand the RIOT CITY vibe from the first song.
