Portugal’s most recognised death metal act, Annihilation, are self-releasing their new EP The Undivided on November 4th, 2014. Founded in early 2004, this six-track release of overpowering metal is the band’s follow-up to the 2010 debut, Against The Storm (Copro/Casket Records). A single from the EP, “The Great Cycle”, was released as a digital download a few months ago and a lyric video.
Candlelight Records today confirms October 7th as the North American release date for ORANGE GOBLIN’s new album, Back From The Abyss. Recorded earlier this year in London, the album reunites the band with producer Jamie Dodd. It was mastered at Turan Audio in late July.

Is this a good thing? I mean it sounds like an early career success story right? Read more.
‘You Can’t Stop Me’: Suicide Silence is of course moving right on with new vocalist Eddie Hermida and here is the result: a band whose writing process is almost exactly the same as what we heard (in terms of writing and tone) on ‘The Black Crown’. Well, that is the consensus on just the one song I’ve heard and that is not a bad thing. I liked The Black Crown. I have signed poster from the guys (yes, including Lucker) and I jammed that album so damn hard.
I eagerly await Belphegor’s new album “Conjuring the Dead”. It’s going to be the next best blackened death metal release of 2014! Hail Satan! Speaking of Satan, Glen Benton is guest vocals on a song apparently! Check it out!
When I heard the previews that Aureole released on Youtube, I was delighted and ready for this music. A few days later, after the third preview was released…a whole new song was revealed as well as the label who shall be releasing this beautiful album. Aureole is birthed by Markov Soroka, the creator of Eternium, and this side project is more of a slower, more dreadful place within music. The perfect blend of 3 depressing genres: Funeral doom, atmospheric black metal and suicidal depressive black metal….Aureole is a trip through sheer darkness, that which no light can penetrate.
The song is just under 10 minutes long and it’s gripping and wonderful the entire time. Fallen Empire Records will be releasing the debut album ‘Alunar’ from Aureole, which is set to be released in March of 2014, so within the next week or two hopefully! Limited cassettes will be made, only 100, so if you want one I suggest you get one. Enough babble though, listen to the song below.
NOLA all-stars known as DOWN bring the whiskey filled riffs and vocals with them on this new song ‘We Knew Him Well’, which will be released along side other new songs on the Down IV Part 2 EP, which drops May 13th. Everything sounds good and I’m ready for this new EP to hit my earholes.
