RAVEN THRONE unleashed  "Доктрина ненависти" ("THE DOCTRINE OF HATRED"), 8/6/2014  via GARDARIKA MUSIKK.



FROM POSSESSION PRODUCTIONS:

Today is a big day! We are happy to announce THREE of our new releases!
The first one is door into emptiness "Wave". It's very hard to describe all positive sides of new DOOR INTO EMPTINESS album! Release of every DIE album is kind of a ritual for us. Every new album is a new step of evolution - not for the band only, but for listener, too. What do we got here? Well, imagine steroid BEHERIT mixed on fir cones and rotten cranberries... plus 666 more ingredients. But what a result! How can such a minimalistic metal have such a wide spectre of blackness!
300 copies of this CD with very weird artwork will be made. Only for the most crazy people in the world - we know that most of you will be scared to listen to it. This album is too unique.

The second one is ASGUARD "Hidden God". After many years, the long-awaited final album of Belarusian hybrid metal legend is finally finished! The most experimental and the most various and unexpected album of the band! There will be 300 copies of this CD only. All artworks are made by maestro W. Smerdulak. The CD contains multimedia bonus - a 46-minute film abot ASGUARD last tour. Without any doubts, this is very important release for every fan of ASGUARD and Belarusian metal in general. "Hidden God" is distributed exclusively through our webshop.
The third is Raven Throne "Šliacham Zabytych". The new album of Belarusian black metal band RAVEN THRONE. True Crivian Black Metal with aura of our forests and bogs - you'll hear it from the first seconds. There is an atmosphere that could be found only here, at our ancient Baltic Lands. Great record and great piece of art. That's why we are releasing this album as elite digibook limited to 500 hand numbered copies. First 50 copies include exclusive patch. "Šliacham Zabytych" will cover you with the turf of oblivion and leave you wandering, contemplating the grandeur of the stinking bog entrails and listening to the proud song of ravens circling over your unmarked grave.
All three albums will be out at the last breath of this Summer. Make you pre-orders through https://possessionproductions.bandcamp.com/music or www.possession.ru

MITHRAS: REVEAL ART WORK AND TRACK LISTING FOR "ON STRANGE LOOPS"

UK based progressive death metal warriors MITHRAS have revealed the art work, track listing and release date for the bands anticipated new release "ON STRANGE LOOPS", due to be unleashed 10/21/2016 via WILLOWTIP RECORDS (NORTH AMERICA) and GALACTIC RECORDS (EUROPE AND REST OF WORLD).









MITHRAS unleashed "TIME NEVER LASTS" (EP), 9/1/2011 via GALACTIC RECORDS.










FROM MITHRAS and WILLOWTIP RECORDS:
Mithras are proud to finally unveil the cover artwork for their upcoming and long awaited 4th album, 'On Strange Loops'. The cover artwork 'Topological Research Of The Black Square' was painted by Russian surrealist artist Sergey Laisk. Mithras Guitarist/Vocalist Leon Macey comments: "We had a very painful search for cover artwork for the new album over a period of many months, being let down by prospective artists here and there and generally getting frustrated, so when we stumbled on Sergey's artwork in an obscure online gallery we knew instantly that it was without doubt the perfect artwork for the album, given that it visually encapsulates the concept perfectly. It was a great relief that Sergey gave us permission to use it or we'd probably have had to resort to doing our own version of his artwork in crayons or ms paint!"
Mithras are also happy to announce the release date for 'On Strange Loops' will be October 21st 2016, for both digital, CD and vinyl releases. The album is being released by Willowtip Records (USA, Canada, Mexico) and Galactic Records (Europe and everywhere else). Willowtip Records are handling the vinyl release exclusively, which will include three special finishes, one of which will be a splatter effect disc.
The final tracklisting for 'On Strange Loops' is as follows:
1. Why Do We Live?
2. When The Stars Align
3. The Statue On The Island
4. Part The Ways
5. Odyssey's End
6. Howling Of The Distant Spaces
7. Between Scylla And Charybdis
8. Time Never Lasts
9. The Last Redoubt
10. Inside The Godmind
11. The Outer Dark
12. On Strange Loops

Mithras are playing Brutal Assault Festival on the 11th Of August, which will be Leon Macey's first show as frontman. The band will announce further dates, including their late-October UK tour very soon.

GODLESS: POST NEW TRACK "OSSUARY"

India based death metal warriors GODLESS, via YOU TUBE, have posted "OSSUARY", a track from the bands anticipated debut release "CENTURIES OF DECADENCE" (EP),  unleashed 5/7/2016 via TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY DISTRIBUTION.








FROM GODLESS:

NEW UPLOAD : The second song from 'Centuries of Decadence' is up on YouTube now. The album art designed by Kaushal is based on this song as well. Ossuary speaks of a wretched creature that dwells deep in the catacombs in a state of suspended animation, about to wreak havoc onto the unsuspecting masses. It feeds off the evil nature of humanity—the more evil we become, the stronger it gets.
This song also features a guest solo by Joe Haley of Psycroptic

 Official Bandcamp - https://godlessindia.bandcamp.com/

Official Label - http://tometal.com/

Description - From Hyderabad, India emerge Godless, a new death metal force that's both powerful and stimulating. Featuring members of Skrypt, Shock Therapy, and Eccentric Pendulum, this is a new sound, a new sonic vision. None other than Joe Haley of Psycroptic (Australia) fame has mixed and mastered the album, in addition to doing a guest solo on this debut album which holds great promise. With unceasing momentum, a staccato delivery, and bucket-loads of power, 'Centuries of Decadence' is touted to be one of most notable albums to ever come out from the region. With an aesthetic that's dark and intriguing, Godless convey their message perfectly and go straight for the jugular, speaking out against the maladies that plague modern society. Their voice of dissent is tangible and they're here to unleash their brand of death metal upon the unsuspecting masses, fuelled by angst, purpose and an undying passion for extreme music. The era of Godless has only just begun.

The mission of Gilda’s Club NYC is to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families. A cancer diagnosis can be an extremely isolating experience which triggers many emotions including fear, anger, depression and an overwhelming sense of helplessness. Currently more than 4200 men, women, teens and children attend free support groups, educational lectures and workshops at the West Village townhouse or at hospital partners around NYC. More than 55 percent of their members have a cancer diagnosis, and the remaining are their loved ones – their children, partners, relatives or friends. At Gilda's Club NYC, they believe no one should face cancer alone.
