MISERATION have revealed another new song entitled "On Wings Of Brimstone" taken from their upcoming third album "Tragedy Has Spoken", click here to listen it.
The theme of the third album of these Scandinavians can be described as sum of the major tragedies of mankinds history. Lyrics for Tragedy Has Spoken have been written by Pär Johansson (Satariel, Torchbearer, The Few Against Many) and bands lead singer Christian Älvestam (also in Solution.45, Torchbearer), and address the diversity of tragedies. Some of which have taken the guise of accidents or natural disasters, while others were carried out with human hands and intent. Behind all this there is to find an imaginary architect, a fictive entity something powerful, aware, far above the manmade concepts of good or evil: the nature of tragedy itself.
Musically MISERATION expand their view on forward-thinking, vicious Death Metal by integrating new instruments to the mix. There still is to find what caused the quality and sustainability of Your Demons, Their Angels (2008) and The Mirroring Shadow (2009), but in 2012 there is more than technical, intricate Death Metal with a good dose of melody. Tragedy Has Spoken was recorded using 8-string guitars, which gives the wall of distortion a certain distinctive flair. In addition MISERATION are incorporating folk instruments such as the Indian harp Esraj, the Persian hammered dulcimer Santur, sawblade, organ, mandolin and piano, as well as Mongolian throatsinging. Music and lyrics are globally and far beyond standard practice, so there is a lot to discover!
The cover artwork for Tragedy Has Spoken has been created by well-reputed artist Pär Olofsson (Immortal, Abysmal Dawn, Immolation, The Faceless).

The Mexican carrion-devourers ZOMBIEFICATION have once again resuscitated from beyond the diseased grave, hellbent on excavating more fetor-drenched Death Metal!
Featuring five tracks of sepulchral audio-sickness,Reaper's Consecration" is a pandemonium of hideously somber Swedified riffage; often trespassing the boundaries of grisly extremes and branding their own style of unrivaled Death Metal stench!
Mixed and mastered by the acclaimed studio engineer Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio (Watain, Desultory, Deströyer 666, etc) and artwork / layout direction by ZOMBIEFICATION throat-butcher Mr. Hitch; "Reaper's Consecration" is the classick coalesce between inexorable Death Metal and corpse-walkers that roam the earth!
Nippon demented Thrash schizoids FASTKILL brews up yet another ultra-blazing Thrash Metal at hurricane speed!
Utterly repulsive and dangerously fast, "Bestial Thrashing Bulldozer" is the group's first full-length album in four years since the equally deranged "Nuclear Thrashing Attack"; FASTKILL is indeed the first-class act in unmerciful rapid-fire Thrash-anity! Includes a cover song from Japanese cult Thrash band Nigarobo's Endless Game.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Keisuke Okada (Disconformity, Gridlink, etc) at Sound Studio NOAH, Tokyo and with the macabre artwork cover by Kei Gomi, "Bestial Thrashing Bulldozer" will literally cleave your head off with fiendish machine-gun riffs, nasty pounding drums and hellish morbid screams!
The unsurpassed Death Metal monarchs MASTER returns with their eleventh full-length album "The New Elite", an odious showcase of brick-wall musical integrity that has been quintessential MASTER even during the band's early inception. Now with 30 years on, Paul Speckmann and his insult-brigade have shown no signs on mellowing, but only more hateful than ever!
Recorded, mixed and mastered at Shaark Studios (Root, Fleshless, etc) and with the emblematic artwork and layout designed by German graphic artist Mark Bridgeman, "The New Elite" is a bulldozing 45-minute audio-violence of social travesty and political coercion. Vehemently honest and the cruel truth does cut like a knife. This is MASTER! Period.
"Young, but already experienced Polish band Neyra, whose music is a mix of aggression of brutal death metal and thrash is preparing to show to the world new videoclip "Mors Nigra". Meanwhile the band is looking for a label for their first album called "Madness in Progress".

After two years of silence Polish death metal extreme act HELLSPAWN strikes a ferocious blow on the faces of infidels with their second album entitled The Great Red Dragon. The album premieres on June 6th, 2012, courtesy of Wydawnictwo Muzyczne Psycho.
The material was recorded, engineered, mixed and mastered in Hellspawn Studio by the frontman of the band - Mariusz Konieczny. The graphical layout of the album was designed by Michał Lis, who especially for the purpose of this album used William Blakes paintings.
Short commentary about the content of the album:
In the realm of extreme music there are some who stride towards maximum brutality, and there are some who stride towards technical perfection. There are also some, like Hellspawn, who do not care much about any of the above, and yet create death metal which does not lack anything and still has much more to offer.
The Great Red Dragon is a perfect example of why there should be no distinction between old and new schools of extreme metal, as it is an uncompromising album which cannot be dismissed under many labels. If youre a fan of Morbid Angel, Angel Corpse, Diabolic or Hate Eternal, the album is mandatory for you !!
ABORYM will enter the studio in October to record their sixth album, the follow-up to Psychogrotesque. The new album will be released in early 2013 through Agonia Records. Title, track-list, guests and tons of important details about the new release will be revealed soon.
