WEEPING SILENCE: Album Artwork

The Maltese gothic/doom metal outfit WEEPING SILENCE is going to release its new album "Opus IV Oblivion" in late October!

The band has now revealed the album artwork, created by Jan Yrlund (Darkgrove). The artwork concept is based and inspired by the funerary tomb art at the St. John's Co-Cathedral in Valletta, Malta.

The band stated:

"The cover artwork is intricately woven with the lyrical theme of the album and reflects the title itself. Malta has a rich cultural heritage that left its mark on funerary art, which inspired the band. The album revolves around the themes of life and death, uncertainty and human disrespect for life on earth. The cover depicts death stopping time within the context of an artwork dotted with symbolism."

The band's new album was produced and mixed by David Depasquale and the band at Spine Splitter Audio in Malta. Andy Horn is responsible for the mastering at The Red Room.

WEEPING SILENCE's new album "Opus IV Oblivion" is set to be released on October 23, 2015 via Massacre Records.

EISREGEN: Album Statement

Only a few days to go until EISREGEN's new album "Marschmusik" will be released.

Vocalist M. Roth stated the following about the album:

"Eisregen, war and death - all this has already been an unholy coalition in the past, and classic songs like "Eisenkreuzkrieger" or "Tod Senkt Sich Herab" proove it. MARSCHMUSIK features a huge amount of songs whose lyrics deal with themes of war - a combination of lyrics, music and layout that has never been more haunting. An album as destructive as a Panzerfaust."

In an interview with EMP's Music Mag, M. Roth also said that Yantit once again took care of the main songwriting, whereas M. Roth was responsible for the lyrical concept and its realization. Both then worked on all arrangements.

Markus Stock, producer and a long-time friend of the band, was widely praised by M. Roth due to his excellent work on "Marschmusik". The band's expectations regarding the sound were excelled - especially the vocals are "100% in your face", according to M. Roth!

EISREGEN will celebrate the album's release at Germany's Summer Breeze Open Air, where they will also play.
They are also going on "Marschmusik Tour" this fall, along with Milking The Goatmachine, and Debauchery on selected dates.

EISREGEN's new album "Marschmusik" will be released on August 14, 2015 via Massacre Records.

CORONATUS: New Album

Good news for CORONATUS fans!

The German gothic/symphonic metal band will enter the Klangschmiede Studio E in late August to record their 7th studio album "Raben Im Herz" with Markus Stock!

Markus will also take care of the album's mix and mastering, whereas Jan Yrlund (Darkgrove) is going to create the album's artwork.

Drummer Mats comments:

"This time we decided to use a German title for our album - mostly because the majority of our songs are already in German and we know that it gets a bit old when you always use two Latin words as an album title.

The new songs will feature even more instrumental parts, which also changed our songwriting process: Our previous songs mostly consisted up to 90% of vocals, which turned out to be a bit limiting for us.
Now, with additional instrumental parts, the songs will be more varied and it's also more fun for us to play them.

There will also be a few changes in store for Anny and Carmen, who will both use a broader vocal range on the new record.

This album will rock!"

CORONATUS' 7th studio album "Raben Im Herz" is scheduled to be released on December 4, 2015 via Massacre Records.

DAMNATION ANGELS: Singer Wanted

Surprising news from DAMNATION ANGELS!

The band, who has recently released it's second album "The Valiant Fire", has parted ways with its vocalist Per Fredrik "PelleK" Εsly.

They released the following statement:

"We're sorry to say that after 5 years together, we're parting ways with PelleK. It's a mutual decision that has been on the horizon for quite some time.

Per Fredrik has a lot going on in his life and simply can't commit the amount of time that we require from him.

As things with the band get busier and busier, we need someone who can commit a serious amount of time to the band, and Per Fredrik simply can't fulfill this duty. We remain friends out of the band and wish him all the best for the future.

Although line-up changes are difficult and can be frustrating, the future of Damnation Angels was never in doubt.
We are very excited about the next chapter for the band and glad you will all be there to share it with us."

The band is now looking for a new vocalist and stated that anyone from anywhere can apply.

Instrumental versions and lyrics for 2 DAMNATION ANGELS songs are available here.

Everyone who's interested, should record a video of him-/herself singing a song and send the YouTube link to the band - either via message on the band's fb page, via email or you can tag the band on fb if you post the video to your profile (make sure the posting’s privacy is set to public).

New Signung: CORAXO

There's a new sci-fi death metal band in town and they're called CORAXO!

The Finnish band was formed in autumn 2013 and has already released two EPs - "Starlit Flame" (2014) and "Starlit Flame II" (also 2014) - containing an exciting new hybrid of death metal and soundcapes from sci-fi movies and TV shows.

CORAXO now aims to move melodic death metal towards a new genre, by fusing it with the ambient electro music of the 70's and taking influences from prog rock and post-black metal.

Lyrically, the themes vary from dystopian societies, oppression and brainwashing to fanaticism, philosophy and ontology. All told through their own sci-fi story universe.

CORAXO's debut album "Neptune", mastered by Dan Swanφ, is expected to be released later this year via Massacre Records.

Line-up

A Tribute To RONNIE JAMES DIO

Ronnie James Dio was a hero and inspiration to many musicians, such as Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Doro Pesch or Axel Rudi Pell, and rumor has it that he‘s the main reason why every metal head worldwide is familiar with the sign of the horns.

Now it‘s time for us to pay tribute to him as well: 12 of our bands covered Ronnie James Dio songs to honor this exceptional musician!

"A Light In The Black (A Tribute To Ronnie James Dio)" comes with 2 CDs with 20 songs by 12 different bands.

CRYSTAL BALL, MESSENGER, GUN BARREL, GLORYFUL, THE ORDER, METAL INQUISITOR, CIRCLE OF SILENCE, BURDEN OF GRIEF, LOVE.MIGHT.KILL, REBELLION, IRON FATE and WIZARD are all part of this project.

You can already listen to the first song off CD 1 - CRYSTAL BALL's cover version of DIO's "Sacred Heart" - here on our YouTube channel:

The stunning artwork was created by Jan Yrlund (Darkgrove.net), who is also a huge DIO fan himself:

"I decided to go for an old school type of hand-painted look, like the classic Dio covers, but I still wanted to keep it original. You'll find many hints and details that refer to well-known DIO themes:
The mountain has two peaks as if they were devil's horns, and of course the DIO mascot Murray is featured too, merging from the fire."

Watch out for the complete tracklisting that we'll reveal soon!

The 2-CD tribute album "A Light In The Black (A Tribute To Ronnie James Dio)" will be released on May 22, 2015 via Massacre Records!

New Signing: JONNE

We're happy proud to announce the signing of JONNE!

JONNE was formed by Jonne Järvelä of Korpiklaani as a solo project which soon morphed and developed into a full band.

Wanting to do something that was musically different and away from his main band, JONNE is pure shamanistic folk music.

Jonne comments:
"An idea about the solo album struck me almost two years ago, when the early sketches of the songs begun to take shape. I immediately realised that the material wasn't going to match Korpiklaani's style. Those pieces had firmly grown on me and I wanted to release them under my own name.”

From starting out as a solo idea, it fast grew into a real band, accompanied by 9 other musicians from the Finnish folk & metal music scene, featuring members of Amorphis, Shape Of Despair, Wabanag and Oceanwake.

JONNE's s/t album is set to be released on July 24, 2015 via Massacre Records!


» Lineup

• Jonne Järvelä - Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Violafon, Hurdy-Gurdy, Mandolin, Kantele + Percussion
• Natalie Koskinen - Vocals
• Yovan Nagwetch - Vocals, Flutes + Percussion
• Eero Haula - Vocals
• Ante Aiko - Vocals
• Pinja Lintonen / Tero Hyväluoma - Fiddles
• Toni Perttula - Accordion
• Santeri Kallio - Keyboards
• Juho Kauppinen - Acoustic Guitars
• Jussi Rautio - Acoustic Guitars
• Jan Rechberger - Drums & Percussion

EISREGEN Talk 'Marschmusik'

It's been a bit quiet around EISREGEN - but don't worry, they're still alive and kicking!

M. Roth stated that the band and keyboarder Dr. Franzenstein, a.k.a. Franziska B., parted ways in early 2015. The spot will stay vacant and they plan to use samples live.

You are probably aware of the fact, that EISREGEN's 11th studio album is called "Marschmusik". EISREGEN are currently in the late stages of the pre-production and expect to enter the Klangschmiede E in May to record the album with producer Markus Stock.

M. Roth already revealed a few possible song titles: "Gott Der Panzer", "Leichensack", "Foltergeist", "Adlerhorst", "Panzerschokolade", "Mein Leben Auf Deiner Haut", "Blutkreis" as well as "Fleischbrand".

Yantit also stated that the album's musical direction, which he called "backwards", will surely surprise a lot of people as well as the appearance of an old partner in crime on keyboards.

Furthermore, EISREGEN plan to release a mini CD called "Brummbär" (that's how people referred to the Sturmpanzer IV) prior to the album's release.

Starting April 3rd, EISREGEN will play as special guests at selected dates of the Hatefest tour - along with their label mates Debauchery.

EISREGEN + DEBAUCHERY @ Hatefest
