Necessary liberation!

At the dawn of a new decade, while the world faced the global pandemic rendering all previous plans obsolete, KING SATAN started working on new material more determined than ever.

The first result of this will be presented to the world with a brand new Single and Music Video titled „This Is Where The Magick Happens“ worldwide.
Premiere: May 27, 2021.



King Seth Aleister Satan, vocalist & director of the new music video, comments:
„The world peaked in the year 1999 and it has been downfall ever since, so I wanted to take this 90’s exploitation much further than before in order to relive those summer hits! And of course, all filtered through our own style and the message of anti-conformity, spiritual anarchy and hunger for enlightenment. There might be or might not be a story of symbolic allegory in the video, making references to various influential thinkers from Socrates to Aleister Crowley and everything between, adjusted into modern times. But most likely I want to say these things only for the keywords for search engines cos people don’t read these statements anyway to the end. PS.: Nietzsche.“

Flashback:

KING SATAN is an INDUSTRIAL METAL band emerging from Tampere, Finland, founded in 2015.

The group’s non-conforming brand of extreme Metal is perhaps best defined by their tendency to combine the topics of Satanism and Occult philosophy together with carnivalesque exploitation and blasphemous dark humor.

Nonetheless, the group’s over-the-top musical style follows no genre-boundaries either, as it draws its major influences from electro-Industrial and Death Metal just as casually as from the areas of Dance Punk and various symphonic elements.

While the act started as a solo project of the vocalist and multi-instrumentalist King Seth Aleister Satan, it has then evolved into a live show-oriented group with a full line-up, and to this day has released two full-length albums „King Fucking Satan“ (2017) and „I Want You To Worship Satan“ (2019).

Although KING SATAN’s roots are originally in the aggrotech based Metal music, the group started incorporating more live band elements into their stage performances while the years went by. Eventually most of these elements became permanent parts on the studio recordings as well.

Together with several singles and distinctive music videos directed by the band’s frontman the project has stirred lots of fuzz and controversy since the day one, while facing the acclaim, criticism, confusion and devoted following all at the same time.

It all led into singles reaching viral charts and ever-growing demand for live performances from which the band has become known for while touring in clubs and festivals in Finland and around Europe.

Glorious mastery!


In the metallic triumphant and artistically timeless noble tradition of eternal cult greats like Helstar, Vicious Rumors, Jag Panzer, Agent Steel and Nevermore, these five Turkish thrashers cultivate their stirringly intense material.

And the seemingly programmatic band name is not deceptive in the slightest, because it simply covers what they offer perfectly! When VENGEFUL GHOUL first came into existence in 2005 in the metropolis of Istanbul, the first participants immediately realized that musically they are clearly called to higher things …

On April 17, 2021, VENGEFUL GHOUL revealed the cover art of their brand new single „Back To War“ from the upcoming 2nd album „Infestation“!

„Back To War“, recorded at Ruthless Crow Studios, Istanbul, will be available for all digital platforms on May 7, 2021.
This is how it should be:
the new track was mixed & mastered by renowned sound guru Jens Bogren at famous Fascination Street Studios, Örebro. Hugely appreciated Bogren also did the final mastering for „Timeless Warfare“ and the Swede delivered a really brilliant job for this.

[ Artwork: Senem Ündemir ]


Accordingly, the songs of the technically top trained commando remind much more of fervent incantations than of regular genre songs. And so the violently gripping POWER THRASH METAL of the massively talented overpressure band matured remarkably fast to a damn substantial recipe, as the band showed 2014 with the multiple excellent debut album „Timeless Warfare“.


Flashback:
After the 2006 demo „Premier Fury“ and the 2013 e-single „Ruthless Crow“, VENGEFUL GHOUL thus returned very strong. Vocalist Emre Kasapoğlu and rhythm guitarist Senem Ündemir together with their formation have been gripped by the desire for the heaviest Thrash rage as thoroughly as lastingly, as can be clearly heard on this killer disc!

[ Pic: Irene Bernad ]


The all-around demanding quintet leaves in the amazingly cleverly structured compositions neither original ideas, explosive riff outbreaks nor a far-reaching distinctive playing culture missing. Also sophisticated arrangements are a matter of honor for these high-level musicians.

Progressive passages are interwoven just as skillfully and with clearly audible success, so that the whole thing remains permanently exciting. Provided with traditional Heavy Metal elements, the numbers of the juicy record gain more memorable significance with every play.

Ultimately, the deeply determined Bosphorus troupe knows how to pile up their very own mix of glorious US Metal mastery and a very own, consistently authentic attitude symbolically miles high! (Markus Eck)

Jetzt wird’s zünftig!

HEATHEN FORAY melden sich zurück!
Am 07. Mai 2021 veröffentlichen die Grazer eine spezielle Coverversion des österreichischen Multi-Platin-Hits „Steirermen San Very Good“ des weit über die dortigen Landesgrenzen hinaus berühmt gewordenen, volkstümlichen Trios Die Stoakogler:


[ Artwork: Heathen Foray ]

2018 feierten die drei Stoakogler ihr 50-jähriges (!) Jubiläum als Musikgruppe, was sogar in der volkstümlichen Musikwelt eine eher seltene Feierlichkeit darstellt.

Axeman Jürgen Brüder kommentiert das aktuelle Artwork von „Steirermen San Very Good“:
„Darauf sieht man den Schädel eines Hirsches. Der hängt bei den Wildingers (Max, Bass & Alex, Gitarre) beim Opa am Haus. Da haben wir die neuesten Bandfotos aufgenommen und der fiel mir sofort ins Auge. Der Hirschschädel schaut zum einen echt super nach Metal aus, andererseits hat er etwas Heidnisches an sich und steht drittens wohl auch für etwas. Wofür genau? Für alte, verwesende Traditionen, die niemand mehr braucht? Für den Tod, der uns alle dereinst einmal ereilen wird? Für all die Virus-Schrecken des letzten Jahres 2020? Der weiß/grüne Anstrich repräsentiert die Flagge unserer Heimat, der Steiermark. Durch das Ganze scheint der ‚Dachstein‘, der höchste Gipfel in der Steiermark, aus dem Hintergrund durch. Die Triskele rechts unten ist seit dem ‚Weltenwandel‘-Album bei uns im Einsatz als alternatives Band-Logo. Und weil der neue Single-Song ohnehin nur auf Spotify etc. kommt, haben wir auf jeglichen additionalen Text verzichtet.“

ANTRISCH
Triumph on the stormy peak!


[ Logo: Dantas Inferno ]



ANTRISCH cultivates in a highly original and independent way an exquisite mixture of different styles of Black Metal, skillfully mixed with parts of Doom, Djent and Dark Ambient.

The group name ANTRISCH is inspired by the world-famous South Tyrolean mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner, who published the dialectical term ‚antric light‘ – which stands for ’strange, secretly, uncanny‘ and simply fits perfectly to the atmospheric music of the Würzburg hopefuls.


[ Pic: Antrisch • Retouching & editing by Christian Wolf ]


Founded in 2020, ANTRISCH with their highly charismatic ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL explore the inner world, which allows for the wide range of expressions that the human spirit is capable of bringing forth from the inner life.

In addition, the outer world is also thematized in an equally sophisticated and no less gripping way, whereby the profound formation essentially deals with the vast landscapes and the captivating forces of nature, which have been experienced in the most extreme way by some daredevils through past, historical expeditions to the most extreme landscapes of the world.

On April 8, the intrepid visionaries around guitarist and main composer Robert Falcon Scott rope all inclined listeners along to experience a musical and lyrical expedition to the heights of the world and the depths of man with the sensational debut EP „EXPEDITION I : Dissonanzgrat“:


[ Artwork: Antrisch • Photo still is taken from the motion picture „Nanga Pargat“ by Hans Ertl (1953) ]


MEDIA FEEDBACK:

5 / 5
„The extreme and unforgiving landscape is captured perfectly, whilst capturing a wide range of complex, adrenaline fueled and fear driven emotions … you are left with a constant chill down your spine, as it feels like the band gave carved out the grim, isolated and chilling atmosphere out of a glacier … distinctly unique … carefully calculated and executed perfectly … stunning debut …“
(Fjordhammer)

Hailing from Edinburgh, Scotland, Husband-and-wife two piece HAND OF KALLIACH arose in December 2020 with the launch of their fascinating debut EP, „Shade Beyond“.

As their touching eclectic ATMOSPHERIC CELTIC METAL sound is defined by distilled Scottish, Gaelic and Celtic overtones, blended with a poisonous Melodeath Metal foundation, it was picked up very quickly by stations and playlists as ‚January’s Band Of The Month‘ on the Midnight Hour show on Metal Meyhem Radio.

[ Artwork: Hand Of Kalliach ]

TRACKS:
01. Fàilte 04:56
02. Fathoms 02:59
03. Overwhelm 03:27
04. White Horizon 05:19
05. In Tempest Wrought 07:08

total: 23:49


Whilst influenced by Folk music, HAND OF KALLIACH creates minimal use of traditional instruments, instead lifting rhythms, time signatures and patterns from Folk music and adapts them for distorted guitars

The tracks of „Shade Beyond“ range in atmosphere from the charged energy of „In Tempest Wrought“ and „White Horizon“, to the raw aggression of „Fathoms“ and the darker intonations of „Fàilte“, and to the more classic Metal punch of „Overwhelm“.

LINE-UP:
Sophie Fraser • Vocals, Bass
John Fraser • Vocals, Guitars, Drums


The overwhelming mixture of the multi-talented pair is truly as unique as it is hypnotic – just dare to imagine a deeply lovely voice like Sarah Brightman’s, as in „White Horizon,“ where the vocals then soar into gripping epic visions of world escape!

MEDIA FEEDBACK:

„… HAND OF KALLIACH does a tremendous job at keeping that energy, power, and all the sensations that a rock-solid work of Folk Metal needs in order to succeed where many others might slack to help make ‚Shade Beyond‘ not only an interesting debut but an immensely promising one at that.“
(Head-banger Reviews)

„… Gaelic and Celtic overtones that can be normally heard in traditional Scottish Folk Music and blend it with Epic Metal sounds … incredible range of Folk and epic Metal production … distorted guitars and incredible growls performed by the husband, balanced with the orchestral softness in the background and the wife’s almost faerie-like vocals is an enchanting listening experience.“
(Miss Mephistopheles)
