ENEMY OF REALITY - Lyric Video For The Track From New Album Released

Greek female fronted symphonic metallers Enemy Of Reality have released a lyric video for the track "The Bargaining", taken from their recently released debut album Rejected Gods. As the band commented, ""The Bargaining" is the second part of a 4-track sequence, inspired by the Myth of Orpheus & Eurydice. The track is about the descent of Orpheus to the Underworld, in an attempt to bring Eurydice back to life. After Orpheus convinces Charon to take him across the river, he faces Hades and uses his music to charm and remind him that he fell in love once, too (with Persephone). Hades finally accepts to return her soul, however Eurydice must walk behind Orpheus, as they travel back to the upper world and he is forbidden from looking back at her, until they have both reached the light of day." The track features Androniki Skoula, courtesy of Chaostar, as the voice of Eurydice. The first official video clip for the track "Needle Bites" (ft. Aylin Giménez from Sirenia) will be released during September. Link

OBERON - New Album After Thirteen Years Of Silence

Oberon, a band which was founded in 1994 and in 1997 released a self-titled mini album, then in 1998 a second CD Mysteries came out, followed by the 7" single Big Brother in 2000 and the experimental ambient record, Anthem, in 2001. In many ways Big Brother marked the end of the Oberon era as Bard began to explore other themes and styles, as could be heard on the single’s B-side "The Ecstasy Of Youth And Death". After 13 years of silence Oberon is back, with a new album entitled Dream Awakening, set for release on 12th September through Prophecy Productions. On the new album there will be as a special guest vocalist Nik of Dark Side Cowboys who did some backing vocals. Bard Oberon is offering a unique musical experience in the blend of new artrock, avantgarde pop and even elements of neofolk; this day also sees the release of enhanced reissues on the project's entire back catalogue. The classic Oberon will be enhanced by the songs of the very rare "Through Time And Space", and the actual debut album Mysteries will come as a double CD including the tracks of the Big Brother vinyl single, the experimental Anthem album plus three yet unreleased recordings. Pre-orders are already available at this location. Link

BLOODTRUTH - Signed A Record Deal With Unique Leader Records, Debut Album Out In September

Italian extreme metal quartet Bloodtruth have joined the roster of Californian label Unique Leader Records. The band was formed in 2009 as the side project of Fleshgod Apocalypse members Francesco Paoli and Paolo Rossi and now featuring the updated line-up of vocalist Luigi Valenti, guitarist Stefano Rossi Ciucci, bassist Riccardo Rogari and drummer Giacomo Torti. The band is fusing the cryptic atmosphere of early '90s death metal and evocative Gregorian chant, representing the band's homeland and history, with methodical technicality, Bloodtruth are ceaseless in their ear-lacerating capabilities. Following their two-track promo released in 2012, Bloodtruth is ready to release their debut full-length, Obedience. Engineered by Francesco Paoli and Cristiano Trionfera (both of Fleshgod Apocalypse) at Sonic Hammer Studios, then mixed and mastered by Italian death metal producer and legend Stefano Morabito of 16th Cellars Studios (Hour Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Eyeconoclast, Inherit Disease et al), the ten tracks on Obedience tap into a wealth of unadulterated lyrical hatred released through incinerating waves of limb-removing, guttural metal. Colin Marks of Rain Song Design (Exodus, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Kataklysm) created some of his most intense artwork for the release, the perfect summary of the level of extreme comprising Obedience. Check the video teaser below and click on the cover artwork to enlarge. Unique Leader Records will release the album on 16th September. Link

"So face the dark and I’ll teach you about fire in a blink of an eye" sang Deathstars in their famous song "Cyanide", which launched them to the stars in the melodic metal compartment. They enchanted our souls by their unique approach to music by delivering the aestheticism of ugliness and have probably become the fastest growing band after the release of their second album, Termination Bliss. And if female fronted bands exploit the good looks of their singers to amuse the male audience, Deathstars are a treat for us, ladies. Perfectly shaped Bernadotte is not only the modern Adonis in flesh, but his haunting and deep as the abyss vocals sound so seductive and eloquent, it is impossible to resist him. In any way. The Perfect Cult doesn’t bring anything new from the band's camp, as their distinctive sound is still based on the use of simplistic, but striking guitar riffs, mixed with quite a heavy use or keyboards. And of course, creating an atmosphere, no one else can: seductive, dark, striking and captivating. Time will tell whether the listeners will embrace the contrast between the first and the second half of the album or simply choose one half as a predominant and preferred. But this release definitely marks a new point in the evolution of Deathstars, as the band showed us they still got it and can still deliver an album, everyone will be talking about.
