REVEL IN FLESH – New album in December
The Deathkult returns!
Swabian Death Metal masters REVEL IN FLESH will unleash their new and fourth full-length-onslaught, entitled “Emissary Of All Plagues”, on 2nd December 2016 via Cyclone Empire.
The album was produced by guitar master Maggesson at the band´s own Vault M. Studio. For mix and mastering they worked again with none other than Dan Swanö (BLOODBATH, EDGE OF SANITY, NIGHTINGALE…) at his Unisound Studios.
Mainman Haubersson comments: “After intense months of working and recording we are damned excited about releasing “Emissary of all plagues” upon mankind! It's probably our darkest and most melodic output thus far! Expect a haunted trip to the darkside mixed with the previously known REVEL IN FLESH Death Metal brutality! We are looking forward to present those new tracks on stage as soon as possible! The restless servants of the Deathkult are back!”
Here´s what the Dan “the legend” Swanö has to say about “Emissary Of All Plagues”: “Another fantastic worship at the altar of SweDeath. To create the best album so far into their career is astonishing. Both me and the band feel this our best sonic co-operation so far, and to me personally, it is extra cool to finally have nailed what I believe to be the ultimate tribute to the SweDeath Guitar tone! It takes more than just a HM2 pedal to get the right “vomiting” to occur “inside” the distortion! Make sure to check out the vinyl version for a full dynamic mix of this amazing slab of true fucking death metal!”
More infos, tracklist and coverartwork will follow soon.
Upcoming REVEL IN FLESH Live-Dates:
17. September 2016 - Cassel Moshfest Vol.4 @ Kulturzentrum K19, Kassel (GER)
03. December 2016 - Album-Release-Show @ Rock-It, Aalen (GER)

ANCIENT - New track streaming
Extreme metallers ANCIENT have released a second track of their new album "Back To The Land Of The Dead" which will be unleashed on 16th September via Soulseller Records. Check out "Death Will Die" at these locations exclusively:
Metalnews.de / Friedhof Magazine / Kaaoszine / Power Of Metal
"Back To The Land Of The Dead" is a comeback for Ancient, 12 years after the previous release "Night Visit". The album was recorded in 7 different locations, in Norway, Denmark, Italy and Greece, mixed in Elfo Studios in Italy, and mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios. The album was produced by Ancient. With Nick Barker behind the drumkit, the album is, as expected, the most aggressive and fastest album of Ancient, yet still with a good amount of clean guitars, and various dark atmospheres as the band is known for. The music was composed by Zel and Dhilorz. The lyrics on the album are all written by Zel, many of them speaking about the devil, the spirit of the devil and how it influences us in various devastating and destructive ways, as well as some fantasy lyrics, still somehow connected with the "old Nick subject". The album cover shows a hooded figure coming back to "the land of the dead" to wake up the "spiritually dead people there". The album is 66 minutes long and has 13 tracks, including a cover of Bathory " 13 Candles".
HOUSE BY THE CEMETRAY - Deal with Pulverised Records / Debut album in the works
One of the latest collaboration between Swedish riff-machine Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Ribspreader, Bone Gnawer, Demiurge, etc) and legendary six-string hacksaw fiend Eric Cutler of the mighty Death Metal evergreens Autopsy, comes a new embodiment of horror and darkness under the moniker HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY!
HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY is a blatant adaptation from the 1981 cult supernatural horror film "The House By The Cemetery" directed by Italian Gore godfather Lucio Fulci and with that as the main influence and driving force, both Rogga and Eric started stewing up ideas for what eventually became an outlet for their love of horror films and of course Death Metal, with HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY. The perfectly-fitting HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY band logo was designed by Bob Toderico, who has done work for bands such as Asphyx, Sinister, Mefisto, etc.
Work on the group's debut album is now underway, with the mixing currently in progress. More details on the album will be announced at a later date.
"This record comes from our darkened souls of horror. May its blood drip from your turntable as it bludgeons your mind!", says Eric Cutler on the upcoming HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY debut album. Rogga Johansson adds: "Expect nothing but the dirtiest ugliest Death Metal we could spew forth."
