Abigor Reunite And Finalize New Album

Coming from Austria, Abigor have reformed and prepared a new album. The album will be titled “Fractal Possession” and is due to be released in spring through End All Life.

Here is the track list for “Fractal Possession”:

01. Warning
02. Project: Shadow
03. Cold Void Choir
04. Lairf Of Infinite Deparation
05. 3D Blasphemy
06. The Fire Syndrom
07. Injection Satan
08. Libery Rises A Diagonal Flame
09. Vapourzied Tears
10. Heaven Unveiled

Abigor certainly fits in with black metal, but the samples provided on their MySpace page suggest that the new album will have good production, and they seem to have a little bit of experimentation with industrial style samples and thrash as well.

Band Feature: Lupara

Lupara has been described as groove metal, which usually means a heavy Pantera influence. Lupara certainly fits that bill, though they don’t have any of the southern influences Pantera does. Lupara is also heavier than most of those bands playing this style of metal in the 90's, which makes them a bit more modern sounding. Every now and then, they’ll add in a Slayer-esque solo as well. The band features ex-Broken Hope guitarist Jeremy Wagner.

Lupara will be opening for Emperor in Chicago.

Life Long Tragedy Prepare To Enter Studio

Life Long Tragedy has finished up writing songs for a full-length. They will enter Grizzly Studios in Petaluma, CA in April to record the album. Deathwish Inc. Will release the new album.

The songs I heard from Life Long Tragedy were certainly hardcore, but with some slight nuances that make them a little different compared to other hardcore bands.

Read Yellow Breaks Up

I haven’t posted anything about a band breaking up in awhile, but when I read that Read Yellow is breaking up, I felt I should share a story about them.

I saw Dillinger Escape Plan on tour in 2004 with The End, Read Yellow, and Trivium was the opener (this was just after Trivium had released “Ascendency”, and was before they got big). The only band on the bill I wasn’t familiar with was Read Yellow.

When Read Yellow started playing, the vocalist/guitarist began screaming and getting right into the audience. During the show, the other guitarist gave his guitar to the audience, and the audience began playing it and making noise on it. They also gave a microphone to the audience, along with a drumstick and a cymbal, to which the audience began making noise with that as well. Near the end of the show, the vocalist/guitarist began throwing his guitar around, and attempting to play it behind his head. Eventually he began jumping around the stage so much that he jumped into the drum kit. The drum kit fell apart, but the drummer attempted to play what was left standing.

I had never been to a live show with that much audience interaction, or that many crazy things happening on stage. I left that show saying “I don’t know if those guy in Read Yellow know how to play, but that was the best live show I’ve seen in my life!”. I’ve been to some great live shows (Suffocation is always fun to see), but nothing quite ever topped that.

It’s a little sad that the only thing I’ve heard about them since is that they’re breaking up. You can read about it at their MySpace page here.

The Wonderful World Of mp3 Blogs

This is something I wasn’t familiar with before, but is a very cool idea. I had heard the name “Aversiononline” a few times, but hadn’t looked up the website until they were mentioned on the MySpace page for Versoma. These mp3 blogs like to provide direct links to mp3s that are provided freely and legally on the internet.

Aversionline provides links to other mp3 blogs, blogs that provide some reading material on music, and some online locations to purchase music.

Take a look at Aversionlonline here.

Band Feature: Versoma

Versoma fit into that world that Neurosis started, and that Isis and Cult Of Luna have helped to perfect. Versoma hangs their vocals on the clean side though, and the songs seem a slight bit shorter and easier to digest. They released their latest EP “Life During Wartime” not too long ago.

Band Feature: Echoes Of Eternity

Echoes Of Eternity consider themselves a progressive goth band (heavy on the goth), and come from an unexpected location - Los Angles. They released their latest album titled “The Forgotten Goddess” through Nuclear Blast last week.

Band Feature: xDEATHSTARx

Having lots of x’s in ones band name (or sometimes just before and after your band name) is usually a dead giveaway of a straight edge hardcore, or metallic hardcore band, but guess what? Yeah, this band is no different. xDEATHSTARx play metallic hardcore, but there are some slight differences. Like several vocalists (3 or 4, the info is a bit sketchy), and sing along style choruses that come off a bit power-metallish (a good thing in this case). xDEATHSTARx released their latest album titled “We Are The Threat” last week on Facedown.

xDEATHSTARx At Purevolume


Band Feature: Flesh

It seems like anyone who’s promoting Flesh wants everyone to know that Flesh doesn’t just play death metal, they play old-school death metal. Coming from Sweden and being basically a one-man project of Pete Flesh, Flesh actually have a much more American sound to them (American death metal seems to be catching on a little bit in Sweden these days).

Flesh released their latest album “Temple Of Whores” late last year through Iron Fist. I should note that the Iron Fist Records that put out Flesh isn’t the same as a similarly named rap label.

Darkest Hour Begin Pre-Production

Fleurety To Re-Record Songs For A 7"

span style="font-weight: bold;">Fleurety have re-recorded 2 songs for an upcoming 7". The songs are “Descent Into Darkness” from their demo “Black Snow” released in 1993, and “Absence” from the compilation album called “Blackend” released in 1995. Runhild Gammelsæter who has participated with Khlyst, Thor’s Hammer and Sunn O))) will record vocal tracks for the song “Absence”. Duplicate Records will release the 7".

Fleurety comes from the old-school of black metal in Norway, and has morphed into a strange avante-garde band with a little bit of black metal left over.

Susperia Post Album Art And Samples Online

Susperia is the band formed by former Dimmu Borgir drummer Tjodalv after his departure of the aforementioned band. Susperia has a new album coming up soon through Candlelight in North America and Tabu in Europe called “Cut In Stone”. The artwork for the new album seems to follow some of the same theme from their previous albums. You can view the art here. You can also here samples of “More” here and “The Clone” here.

I consider Susperia a mixture of black metal and thrash, although they stretch things creatively without leaving the realm of metal. The material I’ve heard from Susperia has been above average, as well as many of the reviews I’ve read for their albums making Susperia a highly recommended band with albums that are difficult to obtain in North America.

Band Feature: The Berzerker

The Berzerker is an industrial/death/grind band from Australia. They used to dress up in costumes with members only referenced by what instruments they play, but now the band seems to be going without the visual aspect. Despite the sound of processed drums which go insanely fast, they are played by a person instead of a drum machine. The Berzerker will release their new album titled “Animosity” April 24 through Earache.

Out of all the music magazines I read, Decibel is by far my favourite, as the writing is good, and they’re able to capture a wide variety of extreme forms of music from more underground circles than most magazines I can think of. That’s why Decibel is listed first in the links list for music magazines on this site.

Band Feature: With Passion

I have their first release “In The Midst Of Bloodied Soil”, and I thought it was an entertaining and slightly different variation on melodic metalcore (especially because of the piano runs). With Passion no longer has a keyboard player, and the new songs that I’ve heard for “What We See When We Close Our Eyes” sounds like extremely technically proficient melodic metalcore with melodic guitar runs all over the place. “What We See When We Close Our Eyes” will be out March 8 through Earache.

Deathkiller New Album

The debut album from Deathkiller will be titled “New England Is Sinking”, which will be released April 24 through I Scream Records. The band features ex members of Hatebreed and Most Precious Blood. I would describe the sound of Deathkiller as VERY old-school emotional hardcore, I mean, we’re talking mid-80's here, so it sounds like the stuff that came before the emo/screamo we know today. Very interesting.

Unsigned Band Feature: Flagitious Idiosyncrasy In The Dilapidation

How about that band name? I found out about Flagitious Idiosyncrasy In The Dilapidation when Revolver magazine mentioned that they had participated in the Maryland Deathfest. They’re an all girl band playing what’s described as death/grind, but to my ears I hear only old-school grind. I can’t seem to find much information at their official website (which hasn’t been updated since 2005) or their MySpace page. Their MySpace page however has stated that they hit the studio in January this year to record.

It’s pretty surprising to find grind of this quality being unsigned (perhaps by choice of the band?). If you look at the discography at their website, you can find a live video.

You can hear a new song from the upcoming album from Unholy at their MySpace page here. The song is titled “A Whisper In The Darkness” which comes off their album “Blood Of The Medusa”, which due out June 5 through Lambgoat Records.

Monday February 26 is the day they hit the studio (that’s today!) to start recording their new full-length for Nuclear Blast. No other info has been posted as of yet, the only thing we know is that Nile will be doing a headlining tour in Australia with Decapitated in May.

Band Feature: Boris

Boris comes from Japan, and I’ve been hearing more and more about them since they released one of their full-length albums “Pink” in North America in 2005. Recently they collaborated on a project with the members of Sunn O))), and people from some other bands as well recently calling that release “Altar”, but it doesn’t stop there. Boris also did a joint project (currently their most recent) with guitarist Michio Kurihara (of Ghost and White Heaven), calling that outing “Rainbow”. Boris plays extremely slow done doom/ambient, but I’ve heard they make major changes between albums. The changes are difficult to tabulate because Boris releases material so often (up to several full-lengths a year), and I’m sure these collaborations only add to the difficulty of figuring out what Boris has put out.

Throne Of Katarsis are a black metal band that come from none other than Norway. They will be releasing their upcoming album titled “An Eternal Dark Horizon”, I believe on March 24 through Candlelight Records. Don’t let the track list fool you, there are 5 very long songs, so it is a full-length, not and EP. The material I heard from them so far sounds compelling.

Blood Freak is currently a one-man project, with the only member being "Maniac Neil".

Band Feature: Doom Day

While Doom Day is described by some as an “All-Star Metalcore Band”, the songs I heard would have me classify them more as hardcore with hints of thrash and guitar solos. The four-piece band contains members from many European hardcore and metal bands. The band contains drummer Robin Guy (ex-Bruce Dickinson, The Business), bass player Volcan “Audiocleaner” Tuereli (Jaylan), guiatrist Gizz Butt (ex-The Prodigy, English Dogs) and vocalist Alexander “Shutta” Parvanov (Brothers In Blood, She Was Asking For It, ex-Vendetta).

They just put out their first album titled “Count Your Useless Hours” which was released yesterday through Superhero Records and Count Swell Creek.

The songs I heard from their MySpace page were extremely compelling, offering a slightly different variations on modern metallic hardcore.

Immolation Post New Song And Album Info

Immolation hails from the old school of American death death metal. They’re located in New York state, and they’ve forged a unique sound among their peers. They’ve posted a new song on their MySpace page titled “World Agony” here. The song itself is great, with overlapping melodies on top of Immolations signature riffs, with an overall epic feel, unfortunately the production seems terrible (why haven’t Century Media and Listenable put some money forth for good production and a new website for these guys?). The song comes from the new Immolation album “Shadows In The Light” due out April through Century Media and Listenable.

Here is the track list for “Shadows In The Light”:

01. Hate's Plague
02. Passion Kill
03. World Agony

Band Feature: Gallhammer

I’ve had an interest in Japanese bands for awhile now, but one of the problems with Japanese bands is having their material make it out to the rest of the world (as I hear it, Japanese bands have lots of home-country support).

Gallhammer play an extremely compelling mixture of punk, old-school doom and black metal. As strange as that mixture might sound to some, the end result works out very well. Recently they released somewhat of a “boxed set” that contains a CD full of demos and rehearsals, as well as a DVD of several live shows. This boxed set is called “The Dawn Of...”, and don’t be fooled about the sound quality of those demos, as they seem to nail the sound quality for raw production just right.

“The Dawn Of...” was released in January through Peaceville.
