Prophets of the Apocalypse :: Debut EP release ‘War Metal’ by Heavy Metal Veteran Pete Serro!

Experience first hand the journey of a warrior, from battles of the mind, to bloody battles on the field. This debut album by Prophets Of The Apocalypse will assault your world with their unique brand of Dark Thrash War Metal!

Driven by a fury of double-bass war drums, this epic invasion carries the listener through tales of Medieval conflict, with old school Thrash vocals merging with elements of Blackened Death styles. The ferociously raw, yet technical guitars of veteran frontman Pete Serro, will satisfy those craving some shred.

 

 

PROPHETS OF THE APOCALYPSE is the rebirth of Epic Dark Thrash Metal. A fire was burning deep within that could not be extinguished. An ember waiting to explode into a fury of destruction.

There was only one focus…fierce headbanging METAL! We unleashed our army of pure Thrash maniacs. Our only goal is to assault your senses and invade your lands.

Our first attack is set for 2018. We have been preparing for battle since 2017, after rebuilding Apocalypse Studios in Tennessee, USA.

Allamedah – New single ‘Perspective’ is out now! Grooviness, Solidity and Professionalism!

Allamedah have just released their 4th in a row single “Perspective” for 2018. Great production and mix followed by an exceptional video shooting. Check the official clip below.

Allamedah was formed in 2015, by vocalist and guitarist David Coutinho, and drummer João Faria. In late 2015, after former bassist Wilhelm Lindh joined the lineup, the band recorded its first single, entitled “Rio”.

In 2016, after guitarist Tiago Marinho completed the formation, the band started recording their debut EP, which included 5 songs: “Symphony”, “Behol Neshima”, “Desnudar a Alma”, “Red Flag” and “Rio”.

In late 2017, after months of writing, the group entered the studio to record 10 songs that would be released during the year of 2018.

Sonically, Allamedah aims to mix the agressiveness of Heavy Metal with the depth, beauty and melancholy of portuguese traditional music (as well as some other cultures), without leaving aside some modern influences of any genre.

Quasarborn ‘s Debut Release ‘The Odyssey to Room 101’ is OUT NOW!

As the title suggests, this album is heavily influenced by both George Orwell’s “1984” and Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”, but has a concept of it’s own. The story follows a rebellious young individual, initially belonging to an allegedly anti-establishment subculture, who after some tragic events has a clash with reality. He learns about his ancestors, and the position of his generation in today’s society. The expression of his rage by attempting suicide is interrupted by the outbreak of a new fake war.

This changes his mind – he is going to take his destiny into his own hands. However, his efforts to organize a mutiny and change the war-struck system fail and he is captured by the authorities. Unlike in Huxley’s novel, there is no father figure (no Mustapha Mond) at the end to guide him through his demise. He is taken to a Ministry of Love kind of institution and locked up in a dungeon where he self-examines himself and questions every decision in his life. Searching for ways to ease his suffering, his mind drifts away into abstract thoughts about the nature of reality, consciousness and existence itself.

At this point, the concept of “Danse Macabre” emerges, he finds comfort in the fact that his captors will eventually share his fate. His “transcendence” is interrupted by the guards who take him to his final destination – Room 101. There he is stripped of every last bit of humanity, dignity, and identity. He is forced to become what he hates the most. A fate worse, or equal to death.

The music depicting this story is fast, intense, angry, but melodic and structured at the same time. It’s the product of many years of writing and refining while still retaining that raw edge. All aspects of the album are produced by the band itself, preserving the authenticity to the maximum.

 

 

Tracklist,


1. Crash Course in Life
2. Toys in the Attic (Introduction)
3. The Underdog League
4. A (Suicide) Letter to Humanity
5. Blood Honey
6. No Mustapha Mond
7. Château d’If
8. Transcendence
9. Escape into Reality
10. Danse Macabre
11. The Odyssey to Room 101

 

History


The nucleus of this band dates back to 2005, when Đorđe Luković (guitar and backing vocals), Marko Danilović Tihi (drums) and Luka Matković (guitar and lead vocals) formed a band at a tender age, hailing from Belgrade, Serbia. After the break up of that band, Luka and Tihi formed Fatality and their partnership continued throughout the years, when they finally joined Space Eater, a legendary Serbian thrash metal band, in 2009, in which they were joined by Đorđe, just a few years down the line.

Under the Space Eater flag, they toured Europe twice, recorded two albums (“Aftershock” and “Passing through the Fire to Molech”), played the legendary Exit festival, etc. With more than enough experience under their belt, the three members decided to leave Space Eater and form a band of their own, recruiting yet another old acquaintance, Miloš Tomasović (bass guitar and backing vocals).

In 2016 the four members settled upon the name “Quasar-born”. While their musical roots are still firmly rooted in the late 80s thrash metal style, there is a lot more variety this time around, with influences creeping up out of numerous genres (such as death, black and heavy metal, classic and progressive rock, and even some jazz and ethno).

Besides the music itself, what Quasarborn really takes a lot of pride in, is the fact that that they are a DIY band. Their music is recorded and mixed by Luka (for Citadela Sound Production) and Tihi is the one responsible for all the visual material. Quasarborn’s debut album has just been released and they have playing shows throughout Europe (Exit Festival and Revolution Festival Timisoara, among others). So stick around and embark on the odyssey to Room 101 with us!

DYSTERSOL – ‘The Fifth Age of Man’! A crushing modern metal bundle you should definitely check it out!

Dystersol strike back with their second full-length since 2014, entitled ‘The Fifth Age of Man’. The Album contains 14 new tracks lasting 55 minutes and it was released on WormHoleDeath on May 4th, 2018.

Heavy, shattering guitar riffs, groovy deep bass lines, crushing double bass drums and mighty orchestras and synths provide the solid basis for uncompromising growling and screaming voices. Dystersol’s style can’t be assigned to one specific genre, but is definitely exciting for everyone who loves to bang their head to modern heavy music.

Tracklist,


1. Fifth Age of Man
2. Life Amongst the Ruins
3. Down to Nothing
4. End of the Fall
5. Winterking
6. Tragedy of the Gifted Ones
7. Night of the Hunter
8. Children of the Wasteland
9. Beyond Blood
10. Olimpia
11. Comforting the Soulless
12. Psychopath
13. Danse Macabre
14. End Game

 

About the Album
The whole album takes place during the Five Ages of Man described by Hesoid, Ovid and other ancient Greek writers. The tracks focus on the Iron Age, the last age of humanity, where people live in misery and kill each other for literally nothing.

The stories wander through time, leaving one constant element: beings falling from grace while trying to achieve progress and knowledge for Mankind. From Prometheus (“the one who stole the flame”, “the bringer of fire” in tracks) over the snake in paradise, to the Morning Star (“the shining one”). In the end, as described in Ovid’s Ages of Man, humanity is not able to handle these technical progresses, thus leading to the Fifth Age.

The Album introduces an allegoric figure which is referred to many times throughout the tracks: The Winterking. A king for one winter, rising with a blaze, disappearing again soon, waiting on frozen plains for his return. Referring to Prometheus and the Morning Star, it is based on the historical figure of Frederik V, representing a quick rise and having enormous impact on the whole world, even though everybody already knows that the time for this person is restricted.

However, the album is not about retelling mythological stories, but on connoting their meaning to modern times and personal concerns. As a consequence, the tracks leave a lot of room for interpretation, and many lyrics can be transferred to refer to one’s personal situation. In the end, the album leaves an oppressive and concerning connotation: The world in its Fifth Age is fucked up.

Egoistic motives have destroyed the whole planet for decades, and exploited people at the end of the food chain hunt each other down for worthless things
