HOD - Welcomes New Bassist Into Their Ranks

San Antonio (USA) blackened death horde, HOD, is pleased to officially induct bassist, ZVS Gastelum, into their infernal ranks. Gastelum comes by way of Texas black metal legion, Plutonian Shore, as well as Gnostic and replaced longtime HOD comrade, Robert "Trans AM" Coleman. Comments the band: "Changes suck but sometimes they have to happen. After many years of service and brotherhood our brother Robert 'Trans AM' Coleman is no longer in HOD. TA will be missed for sure. We hope he gets everything he wants with his current projects and future endeavors. Best of luck to you, brother! We would also like to welcome ZVS Gastelum. ZVS had been filling in on bass while TA was out with Goatwhore, and did a great job. So the choice to bring ZVS into the fold was an easy one to make. ZVS fronts his own band Plutonian Shore, and brings with him many years of live experience. The guy will crush your skull! We are stoked to get out on the road with this demon and unleash hell!"

APNEICA - Working On A New Album, Alice Doro Joins The Band

Atmospheric doom metallers from the Italian island Sardinia, Apneica, are working on a new album which they hope to record later this year. The band which released in 2014 a very decent EP named Pulsazioni...Conversione (read a review HERE) reports that they've recently added into the line-up Alice Doro as a new rhythm guitarist. Alice is also playing with post-hardcore band Riten. Apneica's mastermind Alessandro commented: "We started to arrange the second song out of nine for the new album and Alice is taking part in rehearsal to this. Alice is young and a very good guitar player, better than many guys. We hope to be ready to record the album in November or December." Link

ANILAH - New Version Of "Warrior" In Collaboration With Wardruna Released

After almost a year of secret collaboration, Anilah and Einar Kvitrafn Selvik (Wardruna, Gorgoroth) have finally released a new collaboration entitled "Warrior". The 11 minute epic is a fusion of influences from both artists, ranging from the haunting and shamanic vocal invocations of Anilah, to the ancient tribal call of Einar's signature sound. The end result is a stirring composition, leaving the listener in another world all together. Einar Kvitrafn Selvik commented: "Working on Anilah´s beautiful song "Warrior" has been an absolute pleasure for me. Due to my creative work with Wardruna being so time-consuming, it is very seldom that I can accept invitations to collaborate on other people’s projects. But when I was presented with the song "Warrior" I immediately liked it. I instantly heard and pictured myself being part of it, and so accepted the gracious invitation. I am very happy with the outcome." Listen to "Warrior" in the Bandcamp player below. Link

MOTH - Debut Album Out Now And Available For Streaming

Copenhagen (Denmark) based duo Moth just released its debut album entitled First Second through Peter Out Records. It consists of 8 dark and gothic post-punk songs with a true 80s vibe. Early The Cure might be their most obvious influence on this album, but besides goth and punk, Moth is also influenced by rockabilly and Americana. The album was actually released a few months ago in the US via Mass Media Records, and it quickly sold out before it had the chance to reach the stores in Europe. Now Peter Out Records will make it available also for the European market. You can give a listen to the album in the Bandcamp player below. Link

CRIMSON SWAN - First Details About Debut Album Revealed

Crimson Swan, the German atmospheric doom/death metal ensemble formed in 2010 will release on 13th March via Quality Steel Records their debut album entitled Unlit. Unlit is an album that every friend of the slower paces should definitely lend an ear. Plaintive leads and elegiac keys form a solemn symbiosis with a slowly crushing rhythm section, topped off by the interplay of wistful clean-vocals and brutal growls. Doom or be doomed, they say. Tracklist and cover artwork are below. Link

Unlit tracklist:
01. Fade To Nothingness
02. A Waterfall Of Sorrow
03. Words Of Perdition
04. Unlit
05. Accusations
06. Voidhaven

DEPRIVE - Debut Album Out In A Few Days, Track Available For Streaming

Spain based one-man band Deprive will release in a couple of days (25th January) its debut album entitled Into Oblivion through the record label Memento Mori. Deprive plays old school death/doom metal with a strong sense of emotional expression. Very rarely do you come across such bands playing powerful, crushing metal that doesn't completely give in to the saccharine melodies, but remaining dignified, stoic almost, and still letting the necessary emotions conveyed. Formed by the veteran of the Spanish scene, Erun Dagoth, who is a member of half a dozen bands, the music is mature, introspective and satisfying. It is nostalgic of the time when bands like Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, Amorphis, Cemetery, Hypocrisy, Darkthrone,... released their masterpieces and Deprive, a new band, manages to perfectly capture the vibe and yet keep it somewhat fresh, relevant and stemming from the heart more than any other source. The production is warm, dank and organic. If you feel just a bit nostalgic then try to give a listen to the albums opener "Catacombs Of Betrayal". Link

The path into the secluded and deviant infernal underworld with modern world patients Sarcophagic is full of horror and unimaginable terror that slowly unveils the truth behind the questions about the hopes of better life. What is hidden is more terrifying than what the mind and dreams could ever foresee. Punishing industrial beats, agonizing shrieking tormented and electrified vocals, crushing guitar riffs and profound bass lines guides the listener through digitalized assault of sounds. Birth Of The Betrayer is a modern, well structured and decadent piece of sonic art, with a soundscape that has one foot in metal and the other one in industrial, it conjures a brutal, yet atmospheric catchy sonic madness. An album that must be a joy to every fan of industrial, to fans of extreme metal that are not afraid to explore beyond the borders, for each and every lover of aggressive electronic sounds, it's a classy shock therapy for all of you. Number 666 is burnt into it's hide, a hybrid beast, a modern era clairvoyant preacher of hopeless human existence.
