Producing technical groovy death metal rooted in musical duality and lyricism, Winnipeg, MB's INVERTED SERENITY are streaming their new single 'Elemental Abyss' off their upcoming album 'Integral' due out on October 9th to follow up their 2013 debut 'Manifestation of Eternity In A World of Time'.
"Perhaps our most mature and technically structured songwriting on the record can be found in Elemental Abyss. This song comes out of the gate with a full speed technical thrash pace that unfolds itself into larger layered riffs all while maintaining a mid-paced headbanging groove underlying the majority of the song. Heavy and polyrhythmic riffs are explored akin to the sounds of bands like Decapitated and Meshuggah. A 7/4 time signature is played while Marcos vocals push the thickness of the song along. Tomas' massive sounding screams lead you into the auditory abyss we specifically placed as the final stretch of the album. The themes explored lyrically are tied into the unknowing of our oceans on Earth, which can be paralleled to the unknown depths of our emotions inside of us. While we are immersed in this material world structured by the elements, through discernment and letting go of the weight of physical reality, we are immersed in the fractal nature of reality and its infinite depth."
Epic Celtic Death Metal Combo Steignyr strike back with the release of the official video-teaser for their new LP, which will be entitled "The Prophecy of the Highlands" and will be released next year through Art Gates Records.
The song is taken from SKYFORGERs new album "Senprūsija", which means "Old Prussia" and is dedicated to the Prussians, the now extinct third Baltic nation, the other two being Latvians and Lithuanians. Old Prussian tribes lived around the current territory of Kaliningrad (Russia), which formerly was known as Königsberg. This region is located between Poland and Lithuania next to the Baltic Sea.
This video transports you back into the grim times of the Great Northern War (1700-1721), when several plague outbreaks hit Europe, especially around the coast of the Baltic Sea. The plague spread from Central Asia via Constantinople into Poland as it followed the Swedish army route.
Resurrecturis release new videoclip for "06:30 The Alarm" off work-themed imminent album "Nazienda".
Here's the story: New videoclip by Italian Extreme Metal Monsters!
The song "06:30 The Alarm" is a outtake off work-themed album "Nazienda" out on September 25th on Mighty Music (Denmark).
In the video, actor Roberto Marinelli is subjected to a brutal awakening treatment by members of Resurrecturis who chase him and scream at him during the early morning preparation before going to work!
"For sure the video is pretty funny and ironic, but is built upon a bitter reflection on today's suffocatingly tightening time use schedules and the ever increasing stress at work... Preoccupations don't leave us even in the privacy of our bedroom or in the toilet!
The song 06:30 The Alarm occupies an important position in the economy of Resurrecturis' Nazienda since it marks the abrupt transition from the comfort we experience at home with our dears to the stress-filled time of the working day.
Significantly the lyrics end saying The working day has begun, and it is pretty crazy since the character is still in the stairs at home, but his mind is already filled by anxiety." (Carlo Strappa / Resurrecturis)
