Following 2016's acclaimed album   Winter Thrice  , the new BORKNAGAR effort has once again been mixed and mastered by  Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden.   "This has indeed been a thunderous ride, and we are truly excited to finally start revealing some news about our upcoming album,"  states BORKNAGAR founder and guitarist  Øystein G. Brun . " We have spent almost 2 years writing, recording and producing True North and are extremely proud of what we have achieved this time around. On behalf of the whole band, I can firmly say that we have pushed the limits of our musical exploration, while our musical roots have grown even deeper into the northern ground. This is the most diverse, powerful and grandiose BORKNAGAR album to date! Let there be no doubt!    Yet again, we have been working with    Thor Erik Dullum    and    Marcelo Vasco    for the cover and layout design. From the very beginning of the process, we wanted to have a very clear, crisp and organic cover that spearheads the cold and northern essence of the album.

ATREYU RELEASE "HOUSE OF GOLD"

VIDEO — WATCH

BAND APPEARING ON DISRUPT FESTIVAL THIS SUMMER

Atreyu  have dropped the video for their new single " House of Gold ," directed by Monte Legaspi. Watch it   HERE  .  " 'House of Gold ' is a really important song on the album, especially for myself and Alex. This song is about finding pure love. For us, that was through our children. It’s finding something or someone that truly gives you purpose," said drummer  Brandon Saller .  "For the video, we didn’t want to take a literal approach," he continued. "We wanted to sort of just go off the rails. We wanted to continue to do things that seemed fresh to us, aesthetically. This is an extension of the video aesthetic that we dove into so far on this record, but with a sort of comic book-like, alternate reality twist. The director, Monte Legaspi, really made the concept his own and created something truly unique."  The song appears on the band's latest effort, " In Our Wake ," out now via  Spinefarm Records .

EN MINOR: Project Featuring Philip H. Anselmo With Friends From Down, Superjoint, And More To Release Seven-Inch This August Via Housecore

Preorders Available + Band To Make Live Debut At Psycho Las Vegas

Philip H. Anselmo's  EN MINOR  will release its debut seven-inch this August via Housecore Records. A project inadvertently in the making since his earliest days as a child in the French Quarter, the band features Stephen Taylor (Superjoint, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Woven Hand, 16 Horse Power), Kevin Bond (Superjoint, Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver et al), Jimmy Bower (Eyehategod, Down, Superjoint), Calvin and Joiner Dover (The Dover Brothers), and Steve Bernal (former first cellist in the Temple Symphony Orchestra). An experimental and eclectic musical endeavor that finds Anselmo exploring a softer, graver vocal style,  EN MINOR  is an honest and deliberate change of pace delivering brooding tales of pain, regret, and sorrow.   Serving as the precursor to the band's full-length debut set for release later this year, EN MINOR's self-titled seven-inch will be released on August 2nd. For physical preorders, visit the newly launched Housecore store at    THIS LOCATION   . For digital orders, visit the EN MINOR Bandcamp page    HERE   . Stand by for teasers to be unveiled in the weeks to come.     En Minor  Track Listing:   1. On The Floor  2. There's A Long Way To Go   EN MINOR   will make its live debut at this year's edition of Psycho Las Vegas set to take place August 16th-18th at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.   EN MINOR Live:   8/16/2019 Psycho Las Vegas @ Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino - Las Vegas, NV [ tickets ]  "The initial strains -- in the most primitive sense -- came about when I was given my first guitar at nine-years old," relays Anselmo of the  EN MINOR  project. "I didn't have the patience to learn other people's music, so I wrote my own. And some of those early parts are still prevalent in the songs we're working with now. Fast forward to 1988 when I bought my first four-track recorder; those old songs took on a new life and newer songs were written. Heavy metal was at the forefront of my performance-based output, but these little four-track songs were always there. I always had an apprehension about allowing them to be heard though, because they were so different; only a small circle of close friends got to hear them."  By 1993, Anselmo moved back to his hometown of New Orleans and his home became an instant magnet for local musicians and artists. "At ungodly hours, these old four-track songs took on an even newer life jamming with these cats. We learned a few of the songs and wrote several more, and soon we were recording under the moniker 'Body & Blood.' We wrote more songs, all recorded on a newer model four-track. It was fun. We did it for the vibe. And it was pleasing to break away from multi-tracking studios and heavy metal. Metal music consumed most of our time and lives. Those 'B&B' sessions were damned-near therapeutic."  Without a clear plan for the band, the project remained a periodic therapy session. "We kept things simple and just jammed when everyone was home and played our recordings for friends. Then I eventually moved again, Hurricane Katrina hit, and life sent all of us in different directions."  In 2012, Anselmo met Stephen "Schteve" Taylor and  EN MINOR  truly took shape. "He and I began experimenting with some vibey stuff, and soon after began recording the sessions. This led to the current incarnation of  EN MINOR . Together, we re-worked a few of the old four-track songs and wrote several new ones in short order. These sessions are hypnotic and pulling. And we continue to write songs suitable for this project to this day. Ugly and beautiful,  EN MINOR , isn't 'party music.' This is 'kill the party music.'"   EN MINOR:   Philip H.

THE AGONIST Return With Brand New Album + Reveal First Details And Video!

"Orphans" Drops September 20th on Rodeostar Records!

More extreme, more melodic, more exciting and simply larger than life:  The Agonist  are back! Following their critically acclaimed album " Five ," released in 2016, the extreme metal juggernaut from Montreal, Canada, has released a first single and announced the first and hotly anticipated details of their brand new record, due out September 20th 2019 on  Rodeostar Records .  Says vocalist Vicky Psarakis:   "When I heard the first instrumentals for '    Orphans    ' I was a bit shocked and confused. The music was really dark and heavier than anything we've done in previous albums and I wasn't quite sure how I'd be able to match that emotion. But then you know all it took was writing one full song to get the ball rolling and 2-3 months later everything was done!    With every new album, we love to experiment and dip our toes into new territory, but there's also a lot of elements here that are reminiscent of the earlier days. You can expect a lot of hard hitting, fast-paced madness and many many blast beats! Vocally, there's a wide range of styles, some of which I tried out for the first time, and the lyrics are mostly inspired from horror stories and real-life tragedies. Events that I felt a lot of people can relate to.    '    Orphans    ' is my third album with    The Agonist    and I can't wait to show the world what we created!   We're excited to finally share the first taste with all of you... Get ready for ' In Vertigo !'"  Listen to opening track and first single “ In Vertigo ” and watch the video   HERE  !

New Jersey-based 'trap metal' outfit CONCRETE DREAM has shared a new track from their upcoming self-titled debut album in the lyric video premiere for "Buckout Road."

Formed from members of varied cultural and musical backgrounds,CONCRETE DREAM brings forth a narrative of today's culture and the struggles of life that are equal parts mercy and power. "We chose a self-titled album because these stories on it come from ourselves," states vocalistJeremiah Mayhem. "There is a very personal energy that has driven the band to write and record these songs and the goal was never fame, or fortune; it's to speak to people that are in a struggle, the way other bands' stories spoke to us growing up." Scheduled for release on Friday, June 28 via E-Train Records, the album was produced by Ricky Armellino (Ice Nine Kills, This or The Apocalypse) at Think Loud Studios in York, PA.

The run will conclude on June 16 in Raleigh, NC. A full list of confirmed shows can be found below.  Speaking on the upcoming tour, the band previously commented, "We are beyond stoked to hit the road on this extra-special and extra-brutal U.S. run with our friends in NAILS, DEVOURMENT, and OUTERHEAVEN.  We'll be playing a few tracks of the new record 'Rituals of Power,' as well as bringing the classic heaviness.  Come out to the shows, and LET'S GRIND."   MISERY INDEX  will be touring in support of their upcoming album 'Rituals of Power'. The album can be ordered in various formats  HERE .  MISERY INDEX (on tour w/ NAILS, DEVOURMENT, and OUTER HEAVEN):  06/08: Chicago, IL @ Metro ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/09: Detroit, MI @ The Shelter ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/10: Toronto, ON @ Opera House ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/11: Montreal, QC @ Club Soda ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/12: Boston, MA @ Middle East ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/13: Brooklyn, NY @ Music Hall of Williamsburg ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/14: Philadelphia, PA @ Union Transfer ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/15: Baltimore, MD @ Baltimore Soundstage ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK ) 06/16: Raleigh, NC @ Lincoln Theater ( TICKETS  //  EVENT LINK )   MISERY INDEX (European Tour):  06/28: Protzen (DE) @ Protzen Open Air 06/29: Wiesbaden (DE) @ Schlachthof 06/30: Karlsruhe (DE) @ Jubez 07/01: Graz (AT) @ Club Q 07/02: Budapest (HU) @ Dürer Kert (+Whitechapel) 07/03: Kosice (SK) @ Collosseum 07/04: Trutnov (CZ) @ Obscene Extreme 07/05: Roskilde (DK) @ Roskilde Fest 07/06: Hamburg (DE) @ Monkey's Club 07/07: Aachen (DE) @ Musikbunker 07/08: Nijmegen (NL) @ Merleyn 07/09: Hannover (DE) @ LUX 07/10: München (DE) @ Backstage (+Napalm Death) 07/11: Budweis (CZ) @ MC Fabrika 07/12: Torgau (DE) @ In Flammen   MISERY INDEX  have recently released a brand new video for the track 'Naysayer'. The video is streaming via the official Season of Mist  YouTube  channel  HERE !   MISERY INDEX  return furiously with their brand new album, 'Rituals of Power'! With their sixth full-length, the American icons of hard hitting brutality display the strength of maturity grown out of the experience gained as a relentless touring machine. The general trend of their continuous evolution to incorporate less core elements and move towards classic death metal finds a new high water mark.  When their debut EP 'Overthrow' was recorded in 2001 by vocalist and bassist Jason Netherton (ex-DYING FETUS) together with (then) guitarist and vocalist Mike Harrison and drummer Kevin Talley (ex-DYING FETUS),  MISERY INDEX  immediately charted a course to explore and push the limits of Death Metal and Grindcore, drawing influence from bands like MORBID ANGEL, NAPALM DEATH, TERRORIZER, BOLT THROWER and ENTOMBED. The erstwhile project shifted to a full time band when guitarist Sparky Voyles (ex-DYING FETUS) joined.  In 2003,  MISERY INDEX  unleashed their first full-length 'Retaliate', to exceptional reviews and followed by numerous support tours and festivals in Europe and North America. After several line-up changes, second album 'Discordia' was released in 2006 with even more touring in its wake. Their third full-length, 'Traitors' (2008) reaped raving reactions from both critics and fans and saw the band on the road again until 2009. Then MISERY INDEX  dropped 'Heirs to Thievery' (2010) like a bomb on the Death Metal masses, shattering all expectations. The album was both a commercial and critical success, elevating the band to headlining slots. During that year, long time guitarist Sparky Voyles was replaced by Darin Morris.  A string of shows and festivals around the globe followed and on the Munich date of 'Full of Hate Tour' alongside CANNIBAL CORPSE, BEHEMOTH and LEGION OF THE DAMNED, the band recorded their first live album. Released early 2013, 'Live in Munich' perfectly epitomized the rawness and ferocity that  MISERY INDEX  elevated onto a new level with their fifth full length "The Killing Gods" in 2014.   Now with "Rituals of Power", revolving around the concept of “truth”,  MISERY INDEX  are back with nine crushing tracks which tackle how 'truth' has been constructed and molded throughout history as a means to uphold power, regimes and ideologies. Brace, hold tight and run for cover, the wrath of  MISERY INDEX  is upon us and they are more furious than they've ever been.

DARKTHRONE DEBUT NEW TRACK “DUKE OF GLOAT" AHEAD OF THE RELEASE OF THEIR HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW STUDIO ALBUM, OLD STAR, ON FRIDAY MAY 31ST

Darkthrone, having given fans a taster of their new studio album Old Star with the Fenriz penned, “The Hardship Of The Scots” (LISTEN HERE), the band have revealed a second new song to make the wait until release day just a little bit more bearable! The animated clip also features a new fate from Old Star album cover artist Chadwick Saint John (https://www.inkshadows.com/)

Ted “Nocturno Culto” Skjellum comments "’Duke Of Gloat’ was the first I wrote for this album. I like my metal black, with a dose of heavy. Now with Old Star coming your way let me wish you all a sore neck!"

The legendary Norwegian longstanding partnership of Fenriz and Ted “Nocturno Culto” Skjellum, return with   Old Star  , their first studio album since 2016’s hugely popular  Arctic Thunder . With a mastery and endless dedication to the art of the riff, they cut through 6 new epic tracks, taking in the best of the old school of heavy & extreme metal plus a large dose of doom-laden riffing, & channelling it through the grime of the underground.  Fenriz enthuses  «Old star – again we are here with THE RIFFS! A while after our previous ARCTIC THUNDER album it became apparent that we would continue in that same style, BLACK OLD HEAVY METAL with slow thrash, classic doom and slow death metal.    As many have focussed on the 70s sound over the last 20 years, the mix on our new album has ended up being more 80s than ever. The songs are more metal than ever! Ted's songs have alot of black metal in them, faster and slower but also doomier parts and reocurring parts. My songs are more linear written, it’s an ancient 80s underground trick, with breaks, all slow heavy or slow thrash, classic doom or slow death.»   He continues  «All in all it is our most 80s album so far and our most metal one to date with drum sound typical for the 80s USA/German market and damned lyrics, which are all written by me. We feel that OLD STAR is the big brother of ARCTIC THUNDER. More solid and with even better riffs.»     Old Star   was recorded at the band’s Necrohell 2 Studios, with engineering and production duties carried out by vocalist/guitarist Nocturno Culto, complemented with a perfectly organic mix courtesy of Sanford Parker (Voivod) at Hypercube Studios, & mastered once more by Jack Control at Enormous Door. The stellar cover artistry comes courtesy of Chadwick St John, titled “The Shepherd of the Deep”.  Over the course of 30 years, Norway’s Darkthrone has become a staple of the global black metal genre, forging a legacy as one of the most renowned and influential bands in its illustrious & often infamous history. In the formative years following their 1987 inception, Darkthrone initially started with a strong concoction of thrash & then death/doom metal experimentation, with broader musical influences spanning from the 60s to the 80s, before the debut album  Soulside Journey  was unleashed in 1991. Never ones to follow convention or stand still even then, the band soon embraced a much darker, more primitive form of expression with the now iconic second album  A Blaze in the Northern Sky , & the rest became history.
