FROM MAURIZIO IACONO (KATAKLYSM):
A special thank you to my boy Tommy Jones Videohammer Studios for the crazy adventure of putting together 10 video clips, traveling from the States to Canada and all the way to South Africa to film this , We never worked with a more dedicated director , some people are easy to criticize and expect Hollywood movies but theres no one in the industry that could of pulled off this thing with the time frame and restrictions we were put on to make it happen , We made somewhat of history here, he's a metalhead and a brother and I recommend him to anyone who wants a pro dude with heart behind the camera , he's worked with bands like Slayer and even bigger but always finds time for his brothers in Kataklysm , thanks again, it was fun , good luck in LA \m/ Nuclear Blast Kataklysm

Also peep some new ITP V.015 LOGOS. 





 









YES, ITP V.014/V.015 is working on occasionally bringing back the METAL NEWS FEATURE "THE ART OF DANCE",will be revamped for 2015 as a lot of metal festivals now have their own YOU TUBE channel, as ITP needs mosh pit footage.











                                                                                                                                                                     BBL with more EXTREME METAL NEWS, REVIEWS and EXTREME METAL NEWS FEATURES.

TEMPLE OF BAAL: SET TO UNLEASH "MYSTERIUM", POST NEW TRACK "DIVINE SCYTHE"

French blackened/death metal warriors TEMPLE OF BAAL have posted "DIVINE SCYTHE", a  track from the bands anticipated new release "MYSTERIUM", due to be unleashed 10/2/2015 via AGONIA RECORDS.







TEMPLE OF BAAL released "VERSES OF FIRE", unleashed 10/22/2013 (EUROPE) and 11/12/2013 (NORTH AMERICA) via AGONIA RECORDS.




FROM AGONIA RECORDS:
The highly respected French black/death metal coven have set "Mysterium" as the title of their next record (due on October 2nd via Agonia Records) and "Divine Scythe" as the first single, available for streaming now, at this link:
https://youtu.be/gi2yqmKvUtw
As the album's title suggests, "Mysterium" dwells on the topics of spirituality and religiosity. "From the opener, Lord Of Knowledge And Death, to the closing number, All In Your Name, every inch of this record drips with it" - comments the band.
Musically, the band's black metal roots are back in full force, allowing the atmospheres to develop through songs of epic proportions, mostly clocking around 8 or 9 minutes each. "Mysterium" covers a wide musical specter, from slower ritualistic parts, to furious blasts and thrashy riffs or the surprisingly melodic choirs.
The recording of "Mysterium" took place in Hybreed Studios with long-time sound engineer, Andrew Guillotin (Glorior Belli, Mourning Dawn), who managed to capture the band's trademark massive sounding, magnifying it through a warm and organic production. Cover artwork and layout have been prepared by David Fitt (Aosoth, Secrets of the Moon, Svart Crown) and Maria Yakhnenko.
Tracklist:
1-Lord Of Knowledge And Death
2-Magna Gloria Tua
3-Divine Scythe
4-Hosanna
5-Dictum Ignis
6-Black Redeeming Flame
7-Holy Art Thou
8-All In Your Name
9-The Golden Walls Of Heaven (Bathory Cover, vinyl bonus track)

"Mysterium" will be available in:
- 6 panel digipack CD witt 16 pages booklet
- regular gatefold double black vinyl
- limited to 150 hand-numbered copies double gatefold vinyl (including one picture disc and one black vinyl)
- t-shirt

Pre-orders are available here: https://www.agoniarecords.com/index.php?pos=shop&lang=en

MARE COGNITUM: SET TO UNLEASH "An Extraconscious Lucidity"

California U.S.A. atmospheric black metal warriors MARE COGNITUM have revealed the art work and track listing of the bands anticipated mew release "An Extraconscious Lucidity", due to be unleashed 9/25/2015 via I, VOID HANGER RECORDS.








 MARE COGNITUM released "PHOBOS MONOLITH" 11/3/2014 via I, VOID HANGER RECORDS.


FROM I, VOID HANGER RECORDS:
Less than a year after the underground success of “Phobos Monolith”, Mare Cognitum embark on a time travel through black holes and dead galaxies to bring their second full-length work, 2012's “An Extraconscious Lucidity” back to a new life.
Originally available only as digital and limited CD-r, the album has been fully remastered to enhance his cosmic black metal aura, and has been wrapped up in an intriguing art design that underlines its nature as a true alien artifact.
“An Extraconscious Lucidity is a view into a decrepit corner of the cosmos, where universes are conceived as quickly as they are destroyed,” explains MARE COGNITUM's sole member Jacob Buczarski.
“In this cosmic womb we find sorrowful galaxies, self-aware and conscious. As this cosmic energy swirls and suffers, it is purified, and The Extraconscious Lucidity of the universe is wrought - an ultra-luminous presence of cosmic mind which connects all matter and surpasses all awareness that has come before it. This hollow actualization, in all its grandeur, can still do nothing to appease its own realization that it is, in itself, nothing. It is a journey into the ultimate void.”

CD in jewel case. 12-page full color booklet with lyrics. Cover art and layout by Max Loeffler.
Tracklist:
1. Collapse Into Essence (12:36)
2. Pyre Of Ascendance (6:00)
3. Degeneracy Pressure (7:26)
4. Nascency (7:23)
5. Ergosphere (6:50)
6. Pulses In Extraconscious Lucidity (9:08)

Total running time 49:23

ITP V.015 MUSIC VENUES: EMPIRE (WEST SPRINGFIELD, VIRGINIA) CLOSES, THE MASQUERADE (ATLANTA, GEORGIA) STILL OPEN

West Springfield, VIRGINIA music venue EMPIRE closed a few months ago. Longtime Atlanta, Georgia  popular music venue THE MASQUERADE  fate lies in the balance as the venue is booked well into 2016. Rumor has it Atlanta, Georgia music venue THE MASQUERADE may close due to neighborhood gentrification.







 FROM METAL ARMADA (FACEBOOK):
The Alanta Metal Spot, The Masquerde is closing,and remade into apartments!
Booo!
I got to go here once during a Static-X tour!
It was likes a G.I.JOE playset!
What are your thoughts on the closing?
From the Masquerade facebook,it says they are still booking for 2016,and they are most definetly NOT leaving Atlanta.

FROM THE MASQUERADE (ATLANTA, GEORGIA):
We really appreciate the outpouring of support and concern we have received over the past two days.
The O4W neighborhood has gone through a ton of changes over the past number of years and we are glad to be a part of the growth.
For those concerned about The Masquerade leaving Atlanta, rest assured, we aren't.
We will release specifics as soon as we can. We are continuing with our booking through 2016 and all shows are going forward.
In the mean time, please join us on August 8 and 9 as we celebrate our 25th anniversary in Atlanta with over 60 tremendous bands at The Wrecking Ball ATL.



FROM THE EMPIRE:  ( WEST SPRINGFIELD, VIRGINIA)
 
Four years ago my team and I set out to create a venue, founded by musicians, to provide intimate and memorable nights for both artists and patrons alike - that venue was Empire. Today, I must tell you with a heavy heart that Empire will be closing it's doors May 5th. I have been a promoter in DC/MD/VA for close to 10 years and have had the privilege of owning a successful all ages music venue that has allowed me to work with amazing artists, meet genuine people from all over the world and provide a place where anyone with a passion for underground music could attend and be welcomed with open arms. I have accomplished what I set out to do and have made a decision in my life to explore other interests within the entertainment industry. Empire would like to extend it's deepest thanks to every single musician and patron who attended our shows and I would like to personally thank the great and hard working staff who dedicated their lives to help make Empire what it is. I am forever grateful to anyone that has helped me along the way. It was a truly incredible experience and has been influential in the lives of many and I hope that you will look back with us at the times you've spent at Empire and hold them close. As this chapter ends, a new one begins and the music will play on.
All schedule shows after May 5 will be moved to Canal Club in Richmond, VA. All current ticket sales via Ticketfly will be honored but if you are unable to attend please contact Ticketfly for a refund.
Jason Malhoyt / Empire
