Winglord readies “The Chosen One”

This another band from the Lord Wind-created category of medieval ambient soundtrack neofolk-ish stuff. Their first album, Eroica, sold out quickly. It is similar to Lord Wind but a bit lighter and brighter and more inclined to show instrumental prowess. The new album, The Chosen One, hits our shores this year.

Self-censorship is awesome

There’s something everyone should be aware of concerning Nokturnal Mortum’s NeChrist.

I’ve owned that album since I was like 17 or so, and I’m very familiar with it. Recently, I didn’t feel like digging it out, so I said, fuck it, I’ll just download it and play it on my computer. Something was missing. Yes, something was definitely missing. An entire song. So I downloaded a different rar, then a different zip… ALL OF THEM WERE MISSING THE SONG.

What song am I talking about? The song where they blatantly stated their political motivations in the song title. OK, but the track is listed here… NO incorrect track listing.

Why was this done? Whoever uploaded the fucking files wanted you to NOT have that song but THINK you did- they went as far as to rename the 88 tracks of nature sounds as an actual song. – Black Metal Jihadist

Cianide “A Descent Into Hell” re-issue

Cianide A Descent Into Hell (with bonus tracks)

Rising from the depths of “The Windy City”; Chicago’s finest death/doom threesome Cianide delivered its first death blow to the underground in 1992. After some initial praise from 1992’s “Dying Truth,” Cianide assaulted eardrums with what many consider their finest hour, “A Descent Into Hell.”

Pure, unadulterated death metal and almost 20 years after its initial issue; 1994’s “A Descent Into Hell” is finally available on CD once again. Almost 80 minutes (includes 1993’s “Kills” demo and two unreleased tracks) of true death metal that Cianide has been delivering for almost a quarter of a century.

“Cianide plays TRUE death metal exclusively!”

Cianide A Descent Into Hell 2CD $10+SH

Impiety – Ravage and Conquer


Impiety – Ravage and Conquer

This album is thoroughly enjoyable energetic and simple death metal which incorporates enough hints of melody and harmony to give the songs memorability. However, on the whole it belongs to that category of bands which are guilty pleasure bands by design. They do not aim for profundity, but rather intensity. We might list Vader and Angelcorpse as well, or maybe early Grave, because they have a similar low-tech approach. There is not much that is musical about this release. It is pure rhythm, with the aforementioned musical elements tacked on to keep your interest. But as rhythm, it has the intensity of later Angelcorpse and the raging power of broad basic statements that propelled early Grave. Its songs are not as memorably constructed as those on Exterminate or Into the Grave, have more the intensity of mid-period Vader, but in a time of feeble self-pitying rock bands trying to be hipster “metal,” it’s gratifying to find something with heart. You will tap your feet to these energetic, propulsive tunes and appreciate the sheer violence out of which they are created. Unlike many recent albums which drag you along for the ride, Ravage and Conquer drops you into the middle of it and makes you fight your way out.

SUMMONING working on new material

19.02.2012
After a longer winter-sleep summoning is back again and ow works constantly for a new release. We promise that in the near future we will regularly update the homepage again, so it will we worth the costs to check the page in regular intervals.

The present situation of Summoning:

In the past years we have worked on new material just very rarely because of different reasons (partly personal, partly being not motivated enough) but since the last months ,we intensified the work for new material and realised, that the old spirit is back again and we are very motivated for a cool new release and we are very committed in every terms of composing.

Meanwhile there are two songs which are fix starters for the album. 4 or 5 songs are in a more advance state and we composed riffs for at least 10 or 15 songs in a very early state. Btw. we still have one finished song from the last oath bound session which also will be in one or another way. so probably this time we are in the luck situation that we have more songs left, so maybe there will be some special limited fan releases beside the normal release, but this is of course just a wish right now.

We hope that until the end of this year most of the material for the new album can be finished. In the moment we have no concrete conception about the lyrical concept. All we can say right now is, that Summoning is still alive and middle earth will awake again. – SUMMONING official web presence

This is encouraging.

It does not sound like it will be soon, but so long as quality is high, it will be massively anticipated.
