**Paintings in Artwork/Layout by Karl NE/Nachzehrer(Ex-Nastrond/Shibalba)
The 8th Opus of the hermetic coven of Acherontas is hereby revealed, under the title and haruspex of "Amarta".

An album that feasts for the 20 Years of our Coven (1997-2017) by Embracing the Solar Traditions,Lunar Sorcery & Traditionalism as a Revolt Against the Modern World and the Compromise Genre.
A web of visionary vibrations, consisting of the revolting force of overcoming the bounds and the powerful spark of creation, continuing the Formulas of Reptilian Unification as a second part. We are proud to have Among Us the Great Individuals Naas Alcameth & Indra Breathing a Fiery Essence in our New Work.The fire burns higher now, as the omens are set to become reality.
The philosophy of Empiricism that has been forged throughout the Coven of Acherontas history is now more radiant than ever. Withstanding a duration of 45 minutes and a unique meditative yet dynamic atmosphere, the new revelation is set to uphold the standards of the past and open wide the artistic horizons to the future. A strong return to the roots of Acherontas and the legendary sound waves of the 90's era, blend with an innovative orchestration that signifies the magical Work of "Amarta".
After several magical journeys during the last decade, having led the innovation to the genre by using many meditative ritualistic parts, this time the Devil's Art is summoned by the Coven within the creation of a straight Black Metal album, rejecting the trend of an oversaturated scene that blindly joined the line of ritual ambient Genre to attract the sheep with hollow visions. This is a revolt against the Modern Genre of extreme music, an artistic Extremity to shutter every disbelief, a new Oracle. Keep the Fires of burning Skulls High!
Lepaca Lucifer!

TEHOM: STREAMING "THE MERCILESS LIGHT" VIA BANDCAMP

Swedish death metal warriors TEHOM, via BANDCAMP, are streaming the bands anticipated debut release "THE MERCILESS LIGHT", unleashed 4/21/2017 via BLOOD HARVEST.









FROM BLOOD HARVEST:
Today, Blood Harvest Records sets April 21st as the international release date for the highly anticipated debut album of Sweden's Tehom, The Merciless Light. With a lineup whose roots run deep in the Swedish underground for the past 20+ years, Tehom mainline that combined experience into a beast of blackened death metal as fresh as it is timeless. With all but a demo prior - also titled The Merciless Light, but released in 2011 and at half the length and in rawer form - on the debut album The Merciless Light, the duo took their time to finesse and fine-tune their sound into one that spans decades without bearing the stench of "retro" tedium. It's proudly and mercilessly DEATH METAL, but blackened in a most barbaric manner, gnarly and gnawing and knowing no respite, but never forgetting the iron-fisted fundamentals of harnessing chaos into streamlined form.
Indeed, the art of Tehom in general and The Merciless Light in particular is chaos gnosticism given flesh; the lyrics are thoroughly researched and even-more-thoroughly practiced. As the death metal coven explains of their lyrics, "Mythic truths from the realm of Tehom and Tiamat, the male and female aspects of the ancient Abyss and the howling Void, the Ur-Drakon, the Urgrund of the Beyond. The open vortex and raging nexus wherein the Black and the Red Dragon coils entwined, eternally seething and dreaming, within and without, beyond and between as captured by the spiritual warrior-mages of this coven via the medium of Satanic death metal. Hymn of praise to the communicating Vessels, the fruits of the Tree. Let the world and those you leave behind be the stepping-stones of your transcendence. Let us therefore drink perdition´s wine to seal the oath and never return to these forsaken shores again! Praised be our Father Opposer! Blessed be our Mother Destroyer!"
Now, prepare to bask in The Merciless Light as Tehom lead you into oblivion - and beyond! Take the first step here at Blood Harvest's Soundcloud with the track "The Smoldering Vessels." https://soundcloud.com/blood-harvest/the-smoldering-vessels
Preorder info for the album can be found here: http://shop.bloodharvest.se/?s=tehom&post_type=product
Tracklisting are as follows:
1. Absorbed Into The Will Of The Great Destroyer
2. The Smoldering Vessels
3. Faith From Water
4. Hearth Of Perdition
5. With Patience And Faith
6. Tehom Invocation
7. Voices From The Darkside

RAGE: REVEAL COVER ART AND DETAILS FOR "SEASONS OF THE BLACK"

German power metal warriors RAGE have revealed cover art and details for the bands anticipated new release "SEASONS OF THE BLACK", due to be unleashed 7/28/2017 via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS. 








RAGE unleashed "THE DEVIL STRIKES AGAIN",   6/10/2016 via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.









RAGE  unleashed  "MY WAY" (EP), 1/22/2016 via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.





FROM RAGE:

The creativity and productivity of the German heavy metal trio RAGE seems to have no limits. Only 14 months after the successful "The Devil Strikes Again" neckbreaker, RAGE deliver their new, 23rd studio album called "Seasons Of The Black", which will be released on July 28th!
"Our fans are getting RAGE metal of the very first grade. We've been able to bring the band's typical trademarks into eleven new songs, and we're sticking to the course that we forged on the last album! This means hard and very catchy compositions that also sound thrash, aggressive and epic", tells band leader Peavy.
Since the reorientation of 2015, the three band members have now fully adapted to each other and the lost harmony has been fully restored. "We are even better matched with each other," says Peavy happy. "We offer new ideas to each other like we’ve never done something else before! It also happened that we created a whole new song within just two hours from start to finish, from scratch! Regarding the production we were also able to prevent some complications, which had been an element of the last album due to a lack of experience. This time, everything worked perfectly."
Guitarist Marcos Rodriguez and drummer Vassilios "Lucky" Maniatopoulos have been long-time RAGE fans from the very beginning. Their input also leaves its mark on their second album. "Marcos and Lucky well know the "classic" style-creating spirit of RAGE so to speak, and on a personal level we all really like each other as well. This contributed to the possibility of continuing to develop and expanding the band’s spirit," the vocalist adds.
The stylistic connection between "The Devil Strikes Again" and "Seasons Of The Black" is also visually reflected in the artwork, once again created by graphic artist Karim König. "We developed the idea together," says Peavy. “In this way we want to show that both albums belong together in their own way. I modelled the sonically inspired sculpture that dominates the cover on my own. As a basis, I used a very rare skull from my collection, which I poured myself and then re-modelled. Karim created the gloomy landscape with the Golgotha Hill."
The title song ‘Seasons Of The Black’ will be the opener of the 11 track-album. “The song is very personal, it is about a failed life-long dream. Imagine being stamped to the ground and looking at the broken pieces of your existence. This sadly is a destiny that many people have to share. Most of the songs on the album include a very gloomy view of the world, so we thought “Seasons Of The Black” would be suitable for the entire album,” the vocalist, who founded RAGE over three decades ago, sums up.
"Seasons Of The Black" was recorded in February / March 2017 at Megafon Studios (Burscheid, Germany) and at Soundchaser Studios (Zandhoven, Belgium). Its production was handled by RAGE, whilst the renowned Dan Swanö (MARDUK, OPETH, KATATONIA) took care of the mix and mastering at Unisound Studios (Grefrath, Germany).

ITP V.011 REVIEW: DECAPITATED: "CARNIVAL IS FOREVER":
http://spak-individualthoughtpatterns.blogspot.com/2011/12/itp-v011-review-decapitated-carnival-is.html




FROM NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS:
TIME TO GET THE WEEKEND STARTED! Decapitated's new video for 'Never' can help with that! \m/
New album ANTICULT, out July 7th.
Pre-Order at nuclearblast.com/decapitated-anticult

DECAPITATED TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ANTICULT ON JULY 7 VIA NUCLEAR BLAST
Polish metal extremists Decapitated have revealed details of their upcoming seventh album Anticult, out July 7 via Nuclear Blast. The band has also dropped the new song "Never," which is available as an Instant Grat track for all fans who pre-order the album digitally via iTunes and Amazon. Anticult is available for pre-order at nuclearblast.com/decapitated-anticult.
Anticult highlights just how vital Decapitated have remained two decades deep into their career. Decapitated have long been undeniable masters of their craft and they are expanding their parameters with Anticult, which should elevate the band's profile beyond the death metal realm in which it has dominated for years.
"Anticult represents the legacy and future of Decapitated," said guitarist Vogg. "We're extremely proud of the record, in both the song compositions and the production. This is the best representation of our music and we're really excited for the world to hear it!"
The album's massive musical leap forward is evidenced by "Never." It's a song with an incredible bite and retains Decapitated's signature fury. But it's also undeniably catchy and takes up residence in your brain and stays there.
"'Never,' the first track we are showcasing from the record, is fast, it's technical, and most importantly, it's heavy," Vogg commented. "For us, it's what Decapitated is all about… and it will be really fun to play live. Enjoy it!"
Vocalist Rasta weighed in about the subject matter of "Never," offering this insight into the lyrical content: "There is no mystical, doomish fate waiting for us. The only judgment pending is our own. The simple relationship between cause and effect is what determines our future. We are now witnessing something that should never have happened — our homes have become our civilization's grave."
The band will announce U.S. tour plans shortly.
Anticult Track Listing:
¬"Impulse"
"Deathvaluation"
"Kill the Cult"
"One Eyed Nation"
"Anger Line"
"Earth Scar"
"Never"
"Amen"

AMORPHIS: "There are a lot of things happening right now in Amorphis camp but the saddest part is that our dear brother Niclas Etelävuori has decided to part ways with Amorphis. His decision has nothing to do with the band, no bad blood, no hard feelings between us so it is better that you read his statement and thoughts below"

Finnish death/doom metal pioneers AMORPHIS have posted this statement as bassist NICLAS ETELäVUORI has left the band to be replaced by former AMORPHIS bassist OLLI PEKKA (OPPU).









AMORPHIS unleashed TOUR EDITION of "UNDER THE RED CLOUD", 2/24/2017 via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.




FROM AMORPHIS:
 
Dear all,
We just arrived back home from almost an 8 week North American tour that was a great success in many ways.
A humble thank you to all who came to the shows and meet & greets to tell us that we were truly missed last 8 years. Next tour will take place much sooner, that’s for sure.
There are a lot of things happening right now in Amorphis camp but the saddest part is that our dear brother Niclas Etelävuori has decided to part ways with Amorphis. His decision has nothing to do with the band, no bad blood, no hard feelings between us so it is better that you read his statement and thoughts below. It’s really hard to describe the feelings everyone is going through right now, especially when we have worked as a family with him for so many years. People should understand that Amorphis has always been a democratic band and it’s pretty obvious that not all choices can please everyone. Some people don’t get along with each other, that’s life. The focus and all decisions have still aimed for the greater good and only what is best for AMORPHIS. We will continue with our current management as we feel that there is no distrust between us whatsoever.
Even in these circumstances the show must go on, so we are happy to announce that our old friend and original Amorphis bass player Olli-Pekka (Oppu) Laine is going to play the forthcoming shows and festivals with us. It’s been a long time since we played together but it sure is going to be nostalgic and great fun. Rest of the year continues busy as we are now heading to Russia after couple of weeks and from there to Radio Rock (FIN) cruise before the festival season starts. Under The Red Cloud tour will end in September and after that we start to work on a new album. We’ll keep you informed about that later on.
Most of all, we want to wish Niclas nothing but the best in the future and he will always remain as a close brother to us.
Shine on!
TomiJ, Esa, TomiK, Santeri, Jan

Statement from Niclas
Hello everyone,
I've been avoiding hanging on Facebook since it was invented but now I feel it's probably the only way to get my message out as intended so I have to start now.
I'm very very sad to inform you that after 17 years I've decided to leave my duties as bass player of Amorphis. This is probably the hardest decision I ever made in my life. I still love the music and the guys and the crew are still my brothers and I wish them all all the best in the future. There's absolutely no bad blood between us.
The reason for my departure is 100% due to the (mis)management of the band. It probably sounds crazy to most of you, but that's how it is (music business can sometimes be very complicated). I got the guy his job back in the day and now I only heard lies and bullshit for the last many years, I just had enough so I gotta go I can't work or live like that. It is pretty obvious to me that the manager only works for his own best interest not for the bands best interest, and that's not how it should be.
Strange enough for me ”most” of the band still wants to continue on this path so I better find another one.
We all gotta do what we believe in and I don't believe in our manager anymore. I have left the door open if the band would decide to change things.
Staying true to yourself is most important in life and that's what I'm trying to do, you only live once and life is too short for bullshit. I could probably write a book about it but I'll save that for later now I'm too tired and I have to look for a new job.

I'd like to thank all the fans, companies, people I've met and worked with all over the world over the years it's been a blast. I hope we meet again some sunny day.
Regards,
Niclas

p.s. Bands never let your booking agent be your manager!!! (just a little advice, that we didn't take)

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