Black Metal veterans & more featured on MYRKUR album 

MYRKUR Announces New Album, M Out August 21st on Relapse Records. 


On the heels of MYRKUR’s universally praised debut EP, comes M, the Danish black metal phenom’s highly anticipated first full-length album. Recorded in various locations of Oslo, Norway (including renowned artist Emanuel Vigeland’s Museum) with co-producer Garm – the mastermind behind black metal legends Ulver – M finds MYRKUR achieving the grandiose heights that everyone hoped she would climb to. The melodies are lush and the brutality devastating. M is a highly developed metal masterpiece that blends second-wave black metal, Nordic folk music, classical instrumentation and haunting choirs. Rounded out on record by members of Mayhem & Nidingr plus a guest appearance from Christopher Amott, formerly of Arch Enemy, MYRKUR has quickly established herself as one of the best and most intriguing acts in metal today.

M will see its worldwide release August 21st via Relapse alongside her first ever live performance, headlining the black stage at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival with Deafheaven and Tombs. Numerous other festival appearances around Europe are planned throughout the year. Physical and digtal pre-orders are now available and include a special deluxe LP package containing an exclusive bonus track of the “Skadi” demo.

Crushing New DAWN OF AZAZEL Prog-Death Tracks Available

The Tides Of Damocles is the wrath-infested new full-length from long-running New Zealand-based progressive death metal unit, DAWN OF AZAZEL. A name referencing the ocean as a metaphor for the forces of life that constantly assail and erode the will of those who seek power, The Tides Of Damocles, independently released today, marks the trio’s first new offering in six years. Recorded, mixed and mastered last year at Mana Recording Studios (Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal, Goatwhore, et al) in Tampa, Florida by Brian Elliot and J.J. Hrubovcak, the ten track manifestation hurls forth forty-eight minutes of traumatic, scrupulously detailed death metal mastery.

 Experience The Tides Of Damocles in all its visceral glory at THIS LOCATION.

DAWN OF AZAZEL has been regularly demolishing stages through New Zealand and Australia with future live demolitions to be announced soon. Stand by for additional announcements.

5/02/2015 The King’s Arm Tavern – Auckland, NZ w/ Suffocation, Decapitated

7/04/2015 Rust In Perth 2015 – Perth, AU

8/29/2015 Living Death Fest 2015 – Melbourne, AU

Influenced by the sonic obliteration of bands like of Order Of Chaos, Immolation and Sarcofago, DAWN OF AZAZEL was spawned in 1999 and rapidly established themselves as a force with which to be reckoned with relentless live shows throughout New Zealand and Australia. The release of two demos and a 7″ received widespread acclaim within the underground fanzine and tape trading community. DAWN OF AZAZEL would later release their debut, the volatile The Law Of The Strong, though Agonia Records in 2003 followed by an extensive tour through New Zealand, their first ever shows in Europe and a headlining tour of Australia. Second full-length, Sedition, was unleashed via Ibex Moon and found the band playing over one-hundred-and-twenty shows with their infamy further bolstered by the controversial mix of the band’s violent and Satanic lyrical content and frontman Rigel Walshe’s occupation as a police officer becoming the subject of television and newspaper coverage at home and abroad. Third offering, Relentless, was released via Unique Leader Records followed by another glut of tour ventures. Shortly after its release, Walshe was offered a position of a covert nature within the police department. During this period from 2010 through 2013 the band went on hiatus and focused on creating new material, reemerging with the deliciously punishing tidings of The Tides Of Damocles.

The Tides Of Damocles is out now via the official DAWN OF AZAZEL BandCamp page at THIS LOCATION and comes available digitally and as a stunning, deluxe, six-panel digipack with 20-page booklet.
