DRUADAN FOREST: STREAMING NEW TRACK "ENTHRALLED BY THE MAJESTIC WINTERS ETERNITY"

Finland based epic ambient black metal warriors  DRUADAN FOREST, via BANDCAMP, are streaming  "ENTHRALLED BY THE MAJESTIC WINTERS ETERNITY", a track from the bands anticipated new release "DISMAL SPELLS FROM THE DARGONREALM", due to be unleashed 9/27/2019 via WEREWOLF RECORDS and HELLS HEADBANGERS, 




DRUADAN FOREST unleashed "THE TRUE WEREWOLF"/DRUADAN FOREST SPLIT , 8/17/2018 via WEREWOLF RECORD and "THE LOST DIMENSION",  9/22/2017 via WOLFSPELL RECORDS.







FROM DRUADAN FOREST:
DRUADAN FOREST's third album, "Dismal Spells from the Dragonrealm," now shipping on CD! Vinyl and digital out in September & available for pre-order.
Hailing from Finland, DRUADAN FOREST originally formed in 1998 and released three demos before receding into the shadows later in 1999. In 2016, the entity was reactivated and released an EP and then two albums and, most recently, a split album with THE TRUE WERWOLF. Of course, between the two eras of DRUADAN FOREST, sole creator V-Khaoz was not idle, prolifically playing drums for such bands as Azaghal and many others as well as his various solo-projects - namely, the almighty VARGRAV, who've almost singlehandedly helped revive the symphonic black metal subgenre.
However, as DRUADAN FOREST, V-Khaoz explores the most mystical, folkloric realms between the shadows of black metal and pure ambient music. Some might brand his approach as "dungeon synth," but such a revisionist appelation sells short not only the man's decades-deep investment in these realms, but more so that DRUADAN FOREST thus far have safely eluded simple genre categorization: although most of the themes/textures stay consistent - fantasy, wonder, darkness, heroism, general grandiosity - no two recordings during Mk II of the band sound exactly the same.
Following that epic synth-heavy split with THE TRUE WERWOLF in 2018, DRUADAN FOREST delivers a more plaintive and stripped-down expression with the aptly titled Dismal Spells. Whereas the full-length predecessor The Lost Dimension understandably maintained a slightly more optimistic air, here with Dismal Spells does V-Khaoz plunge deeply into the darkest past, evoking dead-silent castles buried by time and dust. This expression of DRUADAN FOREST is arguably his most dungeon synth-oriented thus far, but within those stricter, more traditionalist parameters does he create entrancing spells that duly transport the listener to forgotten realms. One need only give the album's four component song titles a cursory read to see the landscapes that will soon unfold - "Unsung Spell of No Solace," "Enthralled by Majestic Winters Eternally," "The Seizure of Power in the Luminous Lands by the Hands of the Stalking Fiends," and "No Stars Upon the Black Sea of Macrocosm" - with each track topping 16 minutes, altogether making for a 73-minute journey that feels even vaster than its epic length suggests.

DENIAL OF GOD: SET TO UNLEASH "THE HALLOW MASS"

Denmark based black metal warriors DENIAL OF GOD have revealed details for the bands anticipated new release "THE HALLOW MASS", due to be unleashed 10/25/2019 via HELLS HEADBANGERS and OSMOSE PRODUCTIONS (CO RELEASE). .







DENIAL OF GOD unleashed "THE SHAPELESS MASS", (EP) unleashed 6/28/2019 via HELLS HEADBANGERS and OSMOSE PRODUCTIONS (CO RELEASE). .



FROM HELLS HEADBANGERS:
DENIAL OF GOD LAUNCH PRE-ORDER FOR NEW FULL-LENGTH
At long last, legendary black metallers Denial of God return with their LONG-awaited third album, "The Hallow Mass!" Set to be jointly released Hells Headbangers and Osmose Productions on October 25th, "The Hallow Mass" was preceded by the short 'n' sweet "The Shapeless Mass" EP in June, which stoked the fires for yet more new recordings since 2012's "Death and the Beyond." To say that this album is massively anticipated and very long overdue would be quite the understatement!
By now, Denial of God should need little introduction. Since that fateful year of 1991, the brothers Azter and Ustumallagam have perfected an idiosyncratic style of black metal that's positively drenched in the supernatural and remains firm in their conviction of more classicist-styled songwriting. In fact, "black metal" might even be a misnomer; rather, BLACK HORROR METAL would be more accurate.
This past June, Denial of God - utilizing the same lineup that's been firm since 2005, with Azter and Ustumallagam joined by Galheim - released the critically acclaimed The Shapeless Mass EP, which served as a special teaser for the full-length The Hallow Mass. With that EP's title track intended as a springboard for LP#3's themes and aesthetics, Denial of God proceed to return in grand, GRAND form with The Hallow Mass, reminding those legions just why their brand of Black Horror Metal is so special whilst uncovering new, undead ground.
Recorded once again at Berno Studio, where the previous two albums and several EPs were recorded, The Hallow Mass is indeed a MASSIVE experience, comprising seven epic-length tracks in an incredibly visual 63 minutes - or put more accurately, six central songs and one intermezzo, underlining Denial of God's undeniably cinematic approach to metal. Indeed, within that cinematic experience lays the band's most varied and diverse album to date, and boldly do they begin with the 15-minute sorta-title track "Hallowmas," which includes a compelling middle section consisting solely of keyboards - even more bold for Denial of God, as they generally end their albums with the longest track. Nevertheless, The Hallow Mass ends on a high note with the straightforward-yet-twisted "The Transylvanian Dream," and in between those two tracks do the trio somewhat subvert their trademark melancholy: more aggressive overall than, say, the solemn Death and the Beyond, but dive deeper into the material and discover that same strong sense of melancholy, built upon their characteristic horror aesthetic and theatrical performance. Of course, backed by outstanding drumming from Galheim, frontman Ustumallagam gives another commanding performance which further underlines Denial of God's ever-unique nature: raw, blackened vocals that never become senseless screaming, but which actually make the lyrics relatively easy to understand and penetrate the listener's consciousness.
Topped off by stunningly atmospheric full-gatefold artwork by Markus Vesper, who delivered the unforgettable art for Death and the Beyond, Denial of God's The Hallow Mass is the timely return of true BLACK HORROR METAL!
