MEGASCAVENGER: SET TO UNLEASH "SONGS IN THE KEY OF MADNESS", POST NEW TRACK "FIVE SEVERED FINGERS"

Kalmar, Sweden based death metal duo MEGASCAVENGER have posted "FIVE SEVERED FINGERS", a track from the projects anticipated new release  "SONGS IN THE KEY OF MADNESS", due to be unleashed 8/6/2020 via XTREEM MUSIC.










MEGASCAVENGER unleashed "BONEYARD SYMPHONIES",  2/1/2019 via SELFMADEGOD RECORDS.












FROM XTREEM MUSIC:


MEGASCAVENGER sign to Xtreem Music; 1st single, cover art and tracklist revealed!!
(en español: http://b.link/megascavenger1)
One of the countless projects of the Swedish Rogga Johansson, called Megascavenger, has just signed an agreement with XTREEM MUSIC for the release of their 5th album that will be entitled "Songs in the Key of Madness" and that will be released in August 6th, 2020 on CD format.
Megascavenger emerged in 2012 as a solo project by Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, REVOLTING, PUTREVORE, RIBSPREADER, THE GROTESQUERY... and up to 40 other bands that are known...) and on each and every album, he has brought forth guests from many prominent bands. Legends from MASTER, ASPHYX, AVULSED, GRAVE, EDGE OF SANITY, MASSACRE and BENEDICTION among many others have all been doing their stuff on Megascavenger songs through their first four albums: "Descent of Yuggoth" (2012), "At the Plateaus of Leng" (2014), "As Dystopia Beckons" (2016) & "Boneyard Symphonies" (2019).
This time, on their 5th opus "Songs in the Key of Madness", Megascavenger have dug deeper into the graveyard soil than before, to spew forth songs heavily influenced by bands like Exhumed, Impetigo, Ghoul, Frightmare and Blood Freak, but still retaining that Grave/ early Illdisposed vibe.
The guests featured for vocals and guitar solos this time, are from MACHETAZO, CROPSY MANIAC, WOMBBATH, FONDLECORPSE and PAGANIZER and they do their best to bring out the worst in both blistering fast and utterly heavy songs of the album. The excellent drums on the album re handled by Jon Skäre of WACHENFEDLT and DEFIATORY fame, as well as many other bands.
Tracklist for "Songs in the Key of Madness" is as follows:
1. They Went Mad
(ft Aaron Whitsell of Cropsy Maniac)
2. The Beckoning of the Rats
(ft Silvester Koorevaar of Fondle Corpse and
Aaron Whitsell of Cropsy Maniac)
3. Laboratory Serenades
(ft Rober of Machetazo)
4. First We Slay (Then We Gorge)
(ft Håkan Stuvemark of Wombbath)
5. Five Severed Fingers
(ft Dennis Blomberg of Paganizer)
6. Nothing but the Feet Remains
(ft Jonny Pettersson of Wombbath)
7. Human Sinkhole
(ft Dennis Blomberg of Paganizer)
8. A Terrible Tale of Reeking Remains
(ft Dennis Blomberg of Paganizer)
Release date for "Songs in the Key of Madness" will be August 6th, 2020 through XTREEM MUSIC on CD format. You can visit Megascavenger's official site here: Megascavenger and listen to the 1st advance single on the following link:

FIREWIND: POST LYRIC VIDEO FOR "BREAK AWAY"

Greek power metal warriors FIREWIND have posted a video for "BREAK AWAY" , a track from the bands anticipated new release "FIREWIND",  unleashed 5/15/2020 via AFM RECORDS.









FIREWIND unleashed "IMMORTALS", 1/20/2017 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.











 FROM FIREWIND:


🔥NEW LYRIC VIDEO // Break Away🔥
Hey Firekeepers! We’re happy to present you a lyric video for our new single “Break Away”
Gus G. comments:
“The song has a very strong 80’s vibe. It was originally destined to be an instrumental, hence why it’s a pretty “busy” guitar track. Lyric wise it’s about the PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) that often soldiers deal with.
We feel that “Break Away” is one of the really strong tracks on the album and it’ll definitely find a place in our Setlist when the tour cycle resumes.“

ITP V.020 UPDATE: BLOGSPOT GETS NEW INTERFACE

By late JUNE/JULY 2020, BLOGSPOT will be changing the interface.

The only reason ITP V.020 has resorted to the "new BLOGGER" is that I was afraid it would mess with my blogs layout.


We'll see what happens.












FROM BLOGGER:



Since 1999, millions of people have expressed themselves on Blogger. From detailed posts about almost every apple variety you could ever imagine to a blog dedicated to the art of blogging itself, the ability to easily share, publish and express oneself on the web is at the core of Blogger’s mission. As the web constantly evolves, we want to ensure anyone using Blogger has an easy and intuitive experience publishing their content to the web.  
That’s why we’ve been slowly introducing an improved web experience for Blogger. Give the fresh interface a spin by clicking “Try the New Blogger” in the left-hand navigation pane. 
     
 Click the “Try the New Blogger” button to see Blogger’s refreshed look and feel.
In addition to a fresh feel, Blogger is now responsive on the web, making it easier to use on mobile devices. By investing in an improved web platform, it allows the potential for new features in the future. 
Blogger’s new responsive design makes it easy to manage your blog on-the-go.
Learn more about the page-specific updates we’ve released to make your Blogger experience even better: 
Stats
The redesigned Stats page helps you focus on the most important data from your blog by highlighting your most recent post.    
Comments
A fresh Comments page helps you connect with readers more easily by surfacing areas that need your attention, like comment moderation.  
Posts
We’ve improved support for Search Operators on the Posts page to help you filter your Blogger posts and page search results more easily. 
Editor
The newly enhanced Editor page introduces table support, enables better transliteration, and includes an improved image/video upload experience. 
Reading List 
Even if you don’t create from your phone, it’s now easier than ever to read blogs from other creators while you’re on the go.
Settings 
We’ve streamlined the Settings page to help you manage all your controls from one place.  
We’ll be moving everyone to the new interface over the coming months. Starting in late June, many Blogger creators will see the new interface become their default, though they can revert to the old interface by clicking “Revert to legacy Blogger” in the left-hand navigation. By late July, creators will no longer be able to revert to the legacy Blogger interface.  
We recommend getting ahead of the transition by opting into the experience today. Be sure to let us know what you think about the new design by tapping the Help icon in the top navigation bar. We can’t wait to see how Blogger creators use the latest updates to share their voice with the world.

ULTHAR: POST NEW TRACK "FURNACE HIBERNATION"

Oakland, California, U.S.A. based blackened death metal warriors ULTHAR have posted "FURNACE HIBERNATION", a track from the bands anticipated new release "PROVIDENCE", due to be unleashed 6/12/2020 via 20 BUCK SPIN. 










ULTHAR unleashed "COSMOVORE", 11/9/2018 via 20 BUCK SPIN.









FROM 20 BUCK SPIN:


Ulthar 'Furnace Hibernation' track release today. One more for you before the full 'Providence' LP is released. Have you preordered?
https://www.20buckspin.com/ulthar






June 12th will mark the return of Ulthar. The second album, ‘Providence’, will be released on LP / CD / TAPE and Digital. Today the track ‘Through Downward Dynasties’ is streaming on all platforms:
https://youtu.be/3gyasCEbpro
https://20buckspin.bandcamp.com/album/providence
Featuring artwork once again by Ian Miller, ‘Providence’ will showcase the ever-increasing intangible elements that ULTHAR organize into abrasive cohesion.
The unyielding Ulthar attack doubles down on ‘Providence’ with figures becoming more sickening and shapes more savage. An immensity like spiraling ancient monoliths too tall to comprehend and bending inward upon themselves envelops adherents to this realm. Duly diabolic voices guide this odyssey through the incongruous caverns of absurdity, obscure texts and manifold vitriol.
Recorded by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios (and mastered by Adam Tucker at Signaturetone the album's 8 tracks play out as follows:
1. Churn
2. Undying Spear
3. Providence
4. Through Downward Dynasties
5. Cudgel
6. Furnace Hibernation
7. Narcissus Drowning
8. Humanoid Knot

GEORGE FLOYD was pleading for his life, stating "I can't breathe" as he was murdered by way of cop kneeling on his neck while already handcuffed. These cops should be brought up on murder charges.

FROM PUSSY RIOT:

Yesterday George Floyd was killed by a white policeman in a Minneapolis, during a detention a man repeated “I can’t breathe”
In memory of George Floyd, Eric Garner and all the innocently killed - our song "I Can't Breathe"
“We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor, it must be demanded by the oppressed.” - Martin Luther King
Fight!

You have to make civilian workers being in charge of the police institution, we need people with different thinking and different set of goals being heads of the police. Their goals should be to help people to deal with social and economical problems, not to punish them and kill for no reason, as they just killed George Floyd in the US. The government and the police are our servants. Too often they forget about it and think that it's us who're here to serve them.
I visited in German prisons and asked them how they managed to build a rather humane prison system (there's not ideal prisons, but some are more humane than others). The answer was: to put civilians in charge. In ex-Stasi prison in Berlin, a prison where they used to kill and torture people, now a prison abolitionist social worker is the prison boss. And he reformed prison into an organization which goal is actually to help people to adopt for the future life outside of the prison walls. It's all doable. It's matter whether we have will to accomplish it or not.
