DESTRUCTION Cover Artwork For Born To Perish Released

Legendary German thrashers,  DESTRUCTION , have revealed the cover artwork to their upcoming 17th studio album ,  Born To Perish .  This stunning visualization was created by acclaimed artist  Gyula  from Hungary,  who has also created artwork for  ANNIHLATOR, GRAVE DIGGER, STRATOVARIUS, TANKARD  and many more.  He has also produced a trailer where you can follow the creation of the artwork. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyOZVrtWr_o   The album will be released on August 9th, 2019 via  Nuclear Blast.    Gyula  states  "Schmier wanted to get a simple and different image than my previous    DESTRUCTION    covers. When we discussed the new concept, I was happy with this approach because I had the chance to use a different tool, no painting but ink-drawing style.    When the band mentioned the album title, I got the idea of a crest composition without the typical brave lion or eagle but vultures with two heads and we filled the image with several symbols. I love this   DESTRUCTION    cover - maybe my fave I did for them so far!"   Mastermind  Schmier  adds:  "We wanted something basic this time. I had something like an emblem in mind, a stamp, a   DESTRUCTION    coat of arms. We had so many great colorful graphical covers in the past, this dark album title needed something different. This record marks the debut of the four piece    DESTRUCTION   again, I am very happy with the result and that the great    Gyula    understood right away what direction we wanna go - the album is vicious, dark and hard hitting, the cover-art is the perfect prelude for that!“     Born To Perish   was recorded in January & February 2019 with  VO Pulver (PRO-PAIN, BURNING WITCHES, NERVOSA etc.)   at  Little Creek Studios in Switzerland  and is the first  DESTRUCTION  album featuring  Randy Black  on the drums and new 2nd guitar shredder  Damir Eskic!     Check out this short teaser and listen to the very first snippets of the upcoming album:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMf6eJwFlpE    Tour dates:  21.06.              D         Duisburg - Rage Against Racism 06.07.              HR       Pula - GoatHell Metal Fest 07. - 10.08.     CZ        Jaroměř - Brutal Assault 08. - 10.08.     D         Schlotheim - Party.San Open Air 16.08.              BG       Varna - Rock Fest 31.08.              A          Breitenstein - Metal Escalation Festival    »Killfest 2019 - Part II«   w/ OVERKILL, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM  12.09.              P          Porto - Hard Club 13.09.              E          Madrid - La Riviera 14.09.              E          Barcelona - Salamandra 17.09.              D         Saarbrücken - Garage 18.09.              D         Nuremberg - Hirsch 19.09.              D         Oberhausen - Turbinenhalle 22.09.              D         Herford - X 23.09.              D         Wiesbaden - Schlachthof 24.09.              B          Antwerp - Trix   08./09.11.       D         Weissenhäusser Strand/Ostsee - Metal Hammer Paradise 07.12.              D         Balingen - Crazy X-Mas  More info coming soon.

Brush up on the lyrics, practice your air guitar moves, and catch us on tour this summer!"

Though undeniably influenced by doom and classic metal, to tag the quartet with those labels doesn’t do justice to what they’ve accomplished; a perfect representation of modern heavy metal that integrates the past in a way only possible with the faculty of hindsight. It's impossible to ignore the lengths that the four piece goes to in order to master their craft and produce a highly unique form of heavy sound. Their magnificently uplifting, yet sorrowful groovy riffs weave the listener along on an unparalleled journey.   Desolation   is not just the best  Khemmis  record to date but a testament to the quality and evolution that heavy metal is still capable of. Having worked for the third time with  Dave Otero  of  Flatline Audio  in Denver, the band and producer achieved a deep mutual understanding, able to arrive at the perfect symbiosis of song writing, arrangement, and production value.

Khemmis passion for progressive and soulful heavy music is more evident than ever in 2018’s Desolation. Though undeniably influenced by doom and classic metal, to tag the quartet with those labels doesn’t do justice to what they’ve accomplished; a perfect representation of modern heavy metal that integrates the past in a way only possible with the faculty of hindsight. It's impossible to ignore the lengths that the four piece goes to in order to master their craft and produce a highly unique form of heavy sound. Their magnificently uplifting, yet sorrowful groovy riffs weave the listener along on an unparalleled journey. Desolation is not just the best Khemmis record to date but a testament to the quality and evolution that heavy metal is still capable of. Having worked for the third time with Dave Otero of Flatline Audio in Denver, the band and producer achieved a deep mutual understanding, able to arrive at the perfect symbiosis of song writing, arrangement, and production value.

FALLUJAH Soars Into The Beyond With UNDYING LIGHT

If you know Fallujah, you know by now not to expect the usual run of the mill metal.  Undying Light is no exception. Listening to the new album is like jumping into a dark dreamscape that you are content to stay in and never leave, floating on end into nothingness. They have taken lessons from their previous album Dreamless and pushed even further into territory which only they rule over.  Undying Light also brings in new vocalist Antonio Palermo, which I admit took a minute to adjust to, who not only adds depth, but a blistering and painful quality that blends effortlessly within the beast of Fallujah.

Some unknown force has taken over my senses and placed a hunger deep inside, making listening to this album multiple times a must. I want to discover every dark corner that each song contains and try, unsuccessfully, to comprehend how they wrote this cryptic music. It’s a dizzying matter.  While some bands are contempt with writing basic song structures, Fallujah have broken the mold and instead have liquified themselves in a forever changing environment that is under their control and we are but visitors granted access for a time. Undying Light has once again raised the bar for progressive death metal.

FALLUJAH is:

Antonio Palermo-Vocals
Scott Carstairs - Guitars
Robert Morey - Bass
Andrew Baird - Drums

UNDYING LIGHT Tracklisting

  1. Glass House

  2. Last Light

  3. Ultraviolet

AURI Release Second Trailer Discussing The Bands Name

Echoes of another world resound from the depths of the legendary rabbit hole. Music diffused with moments of silence and escapist dream sequences, freed from time and earthly presence.   AURI  begun its life with three people, united through their shared need to hear a kind of a music which can’t be described by words alone. A magical kind of sound to be heard whilst falling down Alice's rabbit hole. The Finnish singer  Johanna Kurkela  lent her unique voice, while  Troy Donockley  and  Tuomas Holopainen  (both  NIGHTWISH ) cast their spells with various other instruments. Using selected guest musicians and friends, the album finally takes its ultimate form under the direction of sound engineer  Tim Oliver , all within the pastoral splendor of  'Real World' studios  in Southern England. The album will be out on March, 23 and available as digipak CD, 2LP gatefold Vinyl, a limited Earbook and digital.  A question that keeps cropping up for the band is ’where did the name  AURI  come from?‘. In today's new album trailer, the trio explain if there is any connection to  Patrick Rothfuss‘  trilogy  The Kingkiller Chronicle  and the character named  Auri .

Them Thar Chanterelles  Everything begins with a vision. A virtuoso imagination hovering auspiciously in the air, composed of multi-faceted fragments and ideas that gradually become more concrete, slowly taking shape and then finally forming out of the minds of their makers as a new project. Completely unexpected, it‘s just a natural, flowing process. This is just what happened with these three outstanding, internationally successful musicians who have created a musical gem in the form of  AURI,  which shines even brighter than the glittering Polar Star in the night sky.  Johanna Kurkela ,  Tuomas Holopainen  and  Troy Donockley  – the charismatic protagonists behind  AURI  – take their eponymous debut on a fairytale journey through time and space, far from here and now reminding us of the fantastic adventures of »Alice in Wonderland«. Comprehensive sound cascades full of magical and surreal moments that touch all senses await us; sometimes yearning and dreamy, then again rousing and intense.  AURI  celebrate a kind of epic-romantic ethno pop that seems to float in quaint spheres, which are intangible yet unleash multi-faceted sounds capes filled with powerful imagery. These sound cascades are based on Celtic traditional sounds, atmospheric-cinematic dream sequences, melancholic melodies and a touch of transfigured mysticism; beautiful instrumentation yielding an unfathomable depth.   AURI  is the result of a shared passion. Everyone was involved in everything. However,  Tuomas Holopainen  does not want to reveal too much about the songs and their stories,  “since the listener should bring their own story to the songs – after all, that‘s what makes the album so beautiful. It lives from the imagination of every single person!”  says the composer.  “But what I can tell you is that some of the content and the song lyrics are inspired by the Patrick Rothfuss books. Maybe people who know those books and those stories will recognise some parallels and certain scenarios, but believe me; the album equates to so much more.”   If  Tuomas  describes   Auri   in his own words, he cannot help but smile;  “Just a few days ago, we had this conversation within the band and we thought about the best way to describe it. Two terms came to our minds; Rabbit Hole Music and Celestial Metal. Obviously you can hear influences from folk music, Celtic music, soundtracks - all that music that we love and adore, but categorising the style is really impossible. I‘ll leave that to the listeners.”  A tour is currently not planned but one thing is already certain:  “This is definitely not just a one album thing!”  So sit back, close your eyes and let yourself fall into the depths. A world of wonder and miracles awaits you behind the mirrors.   AURI  consists of:  Johanna Kurkela : Voices & viola  Tuomas Holopainen : Keys & backing voices  Troy Donockley : Acoustic and electric guitars, bouzouki, uilleann pipes, low whistles, aerophone, bodhran, keys, voices   Pre-order the album here: http://nblast.de/AURIAuri    

Echoes of another world resound from the depths of the legendary rabbit hole. Music diffused with moments of silence and escapist dream sequences, freed from time and earthly presence.

AURI begun its life with three people, united through their shared need to hear a kind of a music which can’t be described by words alone. A magical kind of sound to be heard whilst falling down Alice's rabbit hole. The Finnish singer Johanna Kurkela lent her unique voice, while Troy Donockley and Tuomas Holopainen (both NIGHTWISH) cast their spells with various other instruments. Using selected guest musicians and friends, the album finally takes its ultimate form under the direction of sound engineer Tim Oliver, all within the pastoral splendor of 'Real World' studios in Southern England. The album will be out on March, 23 and available as digipak CD, 2LP gatefold Vinyl, a limited Earbook and digital.

A question that keeps cropping up for the band is ’where did the name AURI come from?‘. In today's new album trailer, the trio explain if there is any connection to Patrick Rothfuss‘ trilogy The Kingkiller Chronicle and the character named Auri. Watch the trailer here: https://youtu.be/4IqcPosiGyM
