Depressive black metal merchants Ghost Bath are pleased to announce the release of Starmourner on April 21st via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Today, the band release the first single from that record, entitled "Thrones."
Starmourner is available in various formats at nuclearblast.com/ghostbath-starmourner.

Vocalist and mastermind Nameless, recently released the following statement regarding Starmourner's musical direction:

"Starmourner, the brand new album, takes these concepts to a higher level. It explores joy (instead of sorrow), the cosmos (instead of earth), and paradise (instead of purgatory.) But most importantly, it explores ecstasy -instead of tragedy- as its basic human emotion. With over 72 minutes of heavy, melodic, and dramatic black metal, it is Ghost Bath's most ambitious undertaking yet. The album takes its listener on a journey in a variety of ways; Each track is accompanied by a beautifully crafted painting as well as a "parable" to read alongside. This allows the listener to explore not only the audio soundscapes, but a visual and imaginative experience through as they delve into the album. "The stories, or parables, look into jewish angelology and the hierarchy of angels as found in the bible and other religious texts," says Nameless. Although the album has a definitive joyful and hopeful feel, it is still drenched in depression and sorry, as any true Ghost Bath record should be."

Depressive black metal merchants GHOST BATH will release their third studio album, STARMOURNER, on April 21, 2017 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Ghost Bath refers to the act of committing suicide by submerging in a body of water.

Ghost Bath writes and creates under the assumption that music is an extension of one's own soul.

They journey through the sorrow and sadness that all lives experience, but leave a glimmer of hope. They portray both deep anguish and angelic soundscapes that are sure to leave an impression on the listener. The band started in October of 2013 with the release of their self-titled EP on Solitude Productions (China). This was followed by their debut album titled, Funeral, which was released on Pest Productions (China) in June of 2014. The band's sophomore album, Moonlover, was released in April of 2015 through Northern Silence Productions. A reissue was released by Nuclear Blast Entertainment in June of 2016.

 FROM WARBRINGER:
As we near the release of our fifth record "Woe to the Vanquished" we want to show you guys something that will blow some heads off. We wrote this song with the intention of it being the fastest Warbringer song to date, which it is. The music, composed by Carlos Cruz, is a ripping bombardment of riffs and rapid-fire fills with a crushing detonation of a middle section. The lyrics, inspired by the seemingly endless battles on the Western Front of World War One, are full of anger, bitterness, and sheer horror, as day after day after day, week after week, the guns never, ever stop.
Play it loud and take cover!

HALLATAR: SET TO RELEASE "NO STARS UPON THE BRIDGE"

Finland based doomsters HALLATAR (featuring current and former members of SWALLOW THE SUN, TREES OF ETERNITY and AMORPHIS)  have inked a record deal with SVART RECORDS and are set to release the bands debut offering "NO STARS UPON THE BRIDGE" (based upon poems from late TREES OF ETERNITY vocalist Aleah Starbridge),  due to be unleashed summer of 2017 via SVART RECORDS., MORE INFO T.B.A. 





TREES OF ETERNITY unleashed "HOUR OF THE NIGHTINGALE", unleashed 11/11/2016 via SVART RECORDS.

TREES OF ETERNITY vocalist ALEAH STARBRIDGE passed away 4/18/2016 at 39.




FROM SVART RECORDS:

Today, Svart Records announces the signing of HALLATAR. The first fruit of
this union shall be the band's debut album, No Stars Upon the Bridge,
which is based on the lyrics and poems of Aleah Starbridge, and is
tentatively slated for release this autumn.

Although a brand-new name, Hallatar features among its ranks Swallow the Sun and Trees of Eternity guitarist Juha Raivio, Amorphis vocalist Tomi Joutsen, and former HIM drummer Gas Lipstick. In fact, one could see Hallatar as an extension of Trees of Eternity, whose massively acclaimed debut for Svart, Trees of Eternity, served as the swansong of vocalist Aleah Starbridge.
Juha Raivio explains the genesis of Hallatar: "After the death of my beloved and my life partner Aleah Starbridge last April, I have been gathering writings, lyrics, and the poems of Aleah to keep them safe and close to my heart. About one month after the world came down on the blackest day of my life on April 18th, I knew I needed to pick up the guitar and try to create something or I would be truly destroyed. And something did arrive out of the darkness, and I wrote the music for the Hallatar album in a week's time. I don’t have much memory of this week, not a memory of a single day of writing the music. But all I remember when going into this abyss of the writing process was a promise to myself that whatever music would come out, I would not touch or change anything of it afterwards. What mattered was that the music would stay forever as an absolute truth of those moments as they came out. I asked my good friends - and amazing musicians - Tomi Joutsen and Gas Lipstick if they would want to record this music with me, and both of them said yes without even hearing a note of it. I am forever grateful to both of them for sharing this road with me; even the weight of the process has not been easy to carry, or will be."
Adds Gas Lipstick, "I am grateful and very honored to be asked to join this band. Juha is a dear friend of mine since many years ago, and when he told me about his vision for Hallatar and asked me to join, I said yes instantly - I just had to be part of this amazing journey. I had never heard a single note of the music before I gave my 'yes' because I didn't need to. Juha has been one of my favorite songwriters already for years, and I knew that Hallatar will be a very deep, personal, and one-of-a-kind story which I wanted to help him to bring alive."
Continues Tomi Joutsen: "I have known Juha from the year 2007, when we worked together for the first time. A couple years ago, I had the privilege to meet Juha's life partner, Aleah Starbridge, who was such a beautiful person, inside and outside, and had an angelic voice out of this world. Aleah lent her voice on the latest Amorphis album, and we called her 'the whispering ghost.' When I heard about Aleah's passing last spring, it came as a total shock and heartbreaking news out of the blue. When Juha asked me if I would want to be part of this album and carry Aleah's flame with him, I didn't have to think twice. When everything has been taken, all that is left is the music. The sorrow strips us naked and leave us humble - this is how it sounds like."
Concludes Raivio, "What we recorded was a raw moment in time honoring the memory, lyrics, and poems of Aleah Starbridge with all its pain, beauty and darkness. There are no stars left upon the bridge to light the way anymore, but the music will always be a dim light, even in the darkest of the night."
HALLATAR is:
Tomi Joutsen - vocals
Gas Lipstick - drums
Juha Raivio - guitar, bass, keys

Our condolences go out to his family and hopefully they catch the people who did this.
Fucking scummy cunts.
There are a lot of people here talking shit as if it is The Exploiteds fault that this kid got killed outside a gig, let’s get a few points cleared up.
If we had seen any cunt sieg heiling at our gig we would have had them kicked the fuck out. Also, if the people who are talking shit had seen someone do this then why did they do fuck all about it?

There was 1700 people at the gig ,
We had stopped playing 5 or 6 times due to the bouncers beating up the punks at the front of the stage.
Nazis skins or punks are cunts and are NOT welcome to our gigs EVER
once again, some people should think before they post shit up on our face book page
WE HAVE BLOCKED A FEW PEOPLE AS THEY ARE JUST IDIOTS AND NEVER FUCKING LISTEN TO FACT OR REASON. YOU WILL KNOW WHO THEY ARE

DRACONIAN: "It seems that many people are confused over my situation with Draconian. Some people even going around saying I've left the band and Sweden. This couldn't be further from the truth, so please read our official channels first"

HEIKE LANGHANS, vocalist for Swedish Gothic doom metal warriors DRACONIAN has posted this statement regarding a residence permit and traveling with the band.








DRACONIAN unleashed "SOVRAN", 10/30/2015 via NAPALM RECORDS.





FROM HEIKE LANGHANS (DRACONIAN):
It seems that many people are confused over my situation with Draconian. Some people even going around saying I've left the band and Sweden. This couldn't be further from the truth, so please read our official channels first. Or simply ask me yourself. Feel free to share this.
So here's the deal. I am IN Sweden and I cannot leave Sweden. My residence permit extension is being processed. Usually this would take 3-7 months, but because of the Refugee situation (and trust me it is quite the situation), the waiting time is currently 14 - 22 months. Yes, you read that correctly. I have to wait more than 1 year for a 2 year permit.
The reason I cannot leave is A) I have to be here when called upon for an interview at any point and B) without the permit I have no piece of shitty paper allowing me to return after travel. And I live here. With Dan &the Cats So not being able to return would be a problem.
I have received nothing but mixed answers from the Migration board on temporary ways to fix this and most of them require more embassies, more money, more paperwork and more waiting times. Quite frankly it's tedious and soul-destroying. This is why I simply have to wait for my permit before I can travel again.
Our management has been trying to speed up the process, to little avail and sometimes I feel like sharing the email address of the dude handling my case. Imagine an army of fans spamming him with emails to give me my effing permit already . :D
So I hope this gives some clarity. I will see you all again eventually. Please be as patient as I have.


Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-

AVENGED SEVENFOLD: " Last night after our show in Stuttgart, Germany, a 26 year-old stagehand fell from the rafters while breaking down our stage. He fell a very far distance onto a 19 year-old man on the local crew. Tragically, the 19 year-old died from his injuries. The other man is now in critical condition at the hospital."

California, U.S.A. hard rock warriors AVENGED SEVENFOLD have sadly announced roadie (MARVIN P. ,19)  has died after a 26 year old local roadie fell into him (from the lighting trusses) as the crew were dismantling the stage after the bands 2/20/2017 Stuttgart, Germany show.

 The 26 year old local roadie (name unannounced) remains in critical condition in a German hospital. 






AVENGED SEVENFOLD are currently on a WINTER 2017 EUROPEAN tour with DISTURBED.

"Now The seats are all empty let the roadies take the stage, pack it up and tear it down, they're the first to come and last to leave. 
Now roll those cases and lift them amps, haul them trusses down and get em up those ramps.
'Cause when it comes to moving me, you guys are the champs." -Jackson Browne-The Load Out

FROM S.H.I.T. (STAGE HAND INSTITUTE (OF) TECHNOLOGY):
Very sad news out of Germany, 2 hands down, one has lost his life. Both are far too young... #shitnews


FROM AVENGED SEVENFOLD:  

We have some very sad news to report. Last night after our show in Stuttgart, Germany, a 26 year-old stagehand fell from the rafters while breaking down our stage. He fell a very far distance onto a 19 year-old man on the local crew. Tragically, the 19 year-old died from his injuries. The other man is now in critical condition at the hospital.
This is beyond heartbreaking to everyone in the band and on our crew. We all send our thoughts and prayers to the man in the hospital, both families involved, all of the local Live Nation crew and everyone else whose lives have been affected by this terrible accident. We love our crew so much as well as the many local staff who are essential to our show every night wherever we are around the world. This is such a stark reminder of how quickly an accident can happen and lives shattered in the process. When we hear more we will update you.



FROM DISTURBED: 

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, MY BLOOD.
IT IS WITH A HEAVY HEART THAT WE HAVE TO CONVEY THE DETAILS OF THE ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIC ACCIDENT THAT OCCURRED LAST NIGHT AT THE TOUR'S STOP IN STUTTGART, GERMANY.
WHILE THE LOCAL CREW WERE WORKING DILIGENTLY TO BREAK DOWN AND LOAD OUR FRIENDS IN Avenged Sevenfold's SET, A YOUNG CREWMAN, AT THE TENDER AGE OF 19 YEARS OLD, LOST HIS LIFE, WHEN ANOTHER CREWMAN, AGED 26, FELL ON TOP OF HIM, WHILE TRYING TO TAKE DOWN THE FRONT LIGHTING TRUSS.
THE 26 YEAR OLD CREWMAN THAT FELL IS STILL ALIVE, BUT IN CRITICAL CONDITION.
THE HORROR AND HEARTBREAK FELT BY EVERYONE ON THE TOUR IS BEYOND WORDS.
OUR DEEPEST CONDOLENCES GO OUT TO THAT POOR 19 YEAR OLD'S FAMILY, AND OUR BEST WISHES FOR A SPEEDY RECOVERY GO OUT TO THE SURVIVING CREW MEMBER THAT FELL.
WE LOVE AND CHERISH ALL THOSE DEDICATED CREW MEMBERS THAT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING THE SHOW HAPPEN DAY IN AND DAY OUT, AND THIS HORRIBLE TRAGEDY IS ALMOST TOO MUCH TO BEAR.
WE DEDICATE THE REST OF THIS TOUR TO OUR FALLEN BROTHERS.
LIFE IS PRECIOUS AND CAN END IN AN INSTANT. MAKE EVERY MOMENT OF YOURS COUNT.

AVATARIUM: SET TO UNLEASH "HURRICANES AND HALOS"

Stockholm, Sweden doom metal warriors AVATARIUM have revealed details for the bands anticipated new release "HURRICANES AND HALOS", due to be unleashed 5/26/2017 via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.








 AVATARIUM unleashed "THE GIRL WITH THE RAVEN MASK", 10/23/2015 via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.


FROM AVATARIUM:
Avatarium announce third studio album »Hurricanes And Halos«!
Sweden's doom darlings AVATARIUM are back with their third studio album and once again, singer Jennie-Ann Smith and her gentlemen cast a spell over you with a truly magical sound experience - »Hurricanes And Halos« will take the world by storm on May 26th and contains eight majestic new tracks.
Once again, AVATARIUM rely on beauty and darkness, heavy guitars and fragile sounds, unique female vocals and the mystic vintage blues sound from the 60s, while still staying on modern ground and trusting into the haunting soul of doom rock. Six out of the eight new tracks were forged by Candlemass wizard Leif Edling, but guitar master Marcus Jidell and singer Jennie-Ann Smith also contributed to the songwriting and formed a worthy successor to »The Girl With The Raven Mask« that topped multiple soundchecks in 2015 and brought them the 'Up And Coming'-award from German Metal Hammer.
The new album was produced by Marcus Jidell himself, while David Castillo (KATATONIA, BLOODBATH, OPETH) recorded and mixed it in the famous Ghost Ward Studios and the mastering was done by Jens Bogren (SOILWORK, SEPULTURA). Together they created an organic and warm sound that sets »Hurricanes And Halos« apart from the overbred, electronically optimized mass.
"Recording »Hurricanes And Halos« has truly been an emotional roller coaster for me and I do think that has contributed to a pure and vibrating energy on the album. I am deeply proud of what we have achieved together," states lead singer Jennie-Ann Smith and guitar wizard Marcus Jidell adds: "It feels like the two previous albums and the EPs lead us to this one, it's been a natural flow to where we are today, musical and emotional wise"

TEMPLE OF VOID: REVEAL ART WORK AND TRACK LISTING FOR "LORDS OF DEATH"

Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A. death/doom metal warriors TEMPLE OF VOID have revealed the artwork and track listing for the bands anticipated new release "LORDS OF DEATH", due to be unleashed soon (release date T.B.A.)  via HELL'S HEADBANGERS and SHADOW KINGDOM. 







TEMPLE OF VOID unleashed "OF TERROR AND THE SUPERNATURAL", 9/30/2014 via RAIN WITHOUT END RECORDS. 



FROM TEMPLE OF VOID:
Album art and tracklisting revealed!
"An uncompromising record from the band that made one of the very best, if not THE best death/doom debut in last five years or so. Weighty death metal groove and suffocating, gloomy atmosphere in just the right mix together. Album-of-the-year material!" – Markus Makkonen (Hooded Menace / Sadistik Forest)
"...With the bar set so high by that debut album, Temple of Void swagger forth to eclipse that achievement and soundly obliterate any comparisons with Lords of Death. A prescient title if there ever was one, Lords of Death casts Temple of Void in a slightly newer light: whilst unmistakably Temple of Void, this is the sound of the band shorn of any fat and fully representing the powerful, punishing experience of the band in a live setting. It's still signature Temple of Void, to be sure, but Lords of Death emits an enviable amount of focus and forward momentum, with the band largely ditching the doomier tropes in favor of ones reflective of their all-consuming onstage power. Instead, Temple of Void emphasized the deathlier aspects of their debut, but pumped them full of addicting, headbanging energy. Put another way, whereas Of Terror and the Supernatural was doom with death metal, Lords of Death is death metal with doom. Fittingly, the production here is utterly CRUSHING, and once again recorded at Mount Doom in Detroit.
Completed by appropriately morbid artwork by Paolo Girardi, Lords of Death is that Rubicon-crossing moment where a band becomes masters..."
LP on Shadow Kingdom and Hell's Headbangers. CD and Cassette on Shadow Kingdom.
Release date, first track, and preorder info to be revealed shortly. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
