GLORIOR BELLI Reveal Upcoming Album Title Track

French black metallers with a heavy southern rock touch, GLORIOR BELLI, reveal the title song from their forthcoming album “Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls”. The third song to be released prior to street date is available for listening at Noisey, below. “Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls” will hit the shops on October 29 in Europe and November 12 in North America via Agonia Records.

GLORIOR BELLI

Consequently climbing the ladder of innovation and artistic development, the French band GLORIOR BELLI managed to work out a very own sound and view in the often stiff frames found within the black metal genre. Descriptions such as “Avant-garde black metal bluesmen” (Pitchfork) or “bluesy doom-sludge” (Metal Sucks) are only the two sides of the same coin, that is about to reveal a new flip. “Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls” – band’s fifth full-length release – is yet another milestone of an unusual relationship between southern stylistics and crushing heaviness, all tied up and sealed by a twisted yet still refreshing take on music, straight from the suburbs of Paris.

The successor to “The Great Southern Darkness” (Metal Blade, 2011) will be available as digi-pack CD12″ Vinyl and digitally.

Track list:

I. Blackpowder Roars

II. Wolves At My Door

III. Ain’t No Pit Deep Enough

IV. A Hoax, A Croc!

V. From One Rebel To Another

VI. I Asked For Wine, He Gave Me Blood

VII. The South Will Always Know My Name

VIII. Le Blackout Blues

IX. Backwoods Bayou

X. Built For Discomfort

XI. Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls

Excerpt From THE OCEAN DVD Now Playing

Revolver Magazine is pleased to reveal an excerpt from THE OCEAN‘s Pelagial DVD. The dramatic DVD, which is being screened as live video projections during the band’s current Pelagial world tour, is a conceptual movie by Craig Murray, known for his work with Nine Inch Nails, Converge, etc. This movie, which offers up a year’s worth of meticulous shooting, cutting and editing, visualizes the journey into the depths and completes the holistic music and visual art project that defines the Pelagial concept. The film is inundated with spectacular oceanic footage, parts of which THE OCEAN‘s own Robin Staps, an avid scuba diver, filmed himself in Australia. In addition, Pelagial features a female protagonist (who ironically goes by the name “Arielle” in real life). The girl is seen enduring various stages of fear, lust, terror, pain and joy, as she sinks towards the inscrutable depths of the Hadopelagic zone at the end of the album, and metaphorically, deeper and deeper into the depths of her own psyche.

Comments Robin Staps:

The album concept follows two separate but related strains: One is the obvious journey from the surface towards the depths of the sea, crossing the five Pelagial depth zones. The second one is loosely based on Andrey Tarkowsky’s movie Stalker, which is also a journey through zones, but an inward journey, form the surface into the depths of the human psyche, towards the origins of our wishes and desires. This is the central theme that the lyrics of the album are orbiting around. The Pelagial movie takes up themes from and makes reference to both of these conceptual strains, and fuzes them together, in an abstract, artistic way.”

The Pelagial DVD comes with a 5:1 Dolby surround mix of the instrumental album and is currently only available along with the special limited edition acrylic box set versions of the album, which were released through the band’s own Pelagic Records, on both CD and 4×10″ vinyl formats, in April. These special acrylic boxes contained the CD digipak or the two vinyl gatefolds respectively; which were “buried” underneath five thick, silk-screen printed acrylic layers colored in different hues of transparent blue, again reflecting the individual pelagic depth zones. The vinyl box sets sold out within nine days in February 2013, by direct preorder only. A second edition, including a repress of the vinyl on three-color split wax, will be made available for preorder shortly, and released in December through Pelagic Records. The CD box sets are still available through http://www.pelagic-records.com/cds.

Check out the stunning excerpt from the DVD in the form of the instrumental version of “Bathyalpelagic III: Disequillibrated,” now playing courtesy of Revolver at THIS LOCATION.

THE OCEAN‘s wildly successful Pelagial full-length was released earlier this year via Metal Blade. Their most profound work to date, Pelagial is a 53-minute exploratory composition written, recorded, mixed and intended to-be-performed-live as one single piece of music. Centered around all five pelagic depth zones, Pelagial purposefully submerges its listeners into an aquatic journey that is at once tranquil and terrifying. Crowned “ambitious and textured” by Terrorizer and “brilliantly written, expertly executed and filled with the kind of songwriting most bands can only dream of,” by Crave, Pelagial entered the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #10 upon its first week of release and continues to reap critical accolades from fans and critics globally. The OCEAN is currently in the last stages of a three-month world tour promoting Pelagial, which included North America, Taiwan, China, and currently Russia.

Stay tuned for further THE OCEAN missives in the weeks to follow.

TEMPLE OF BAAL Premiere New Track

French death/black metallers TEMPLE OF BAAL premiered the first track off their upcoming album entitled Verses Of Fire. The release is coming out on October 22 in Europe and November 12 in North America via Agonia Records. The stream is available at: http://youtu.be/GH5yedt6otg

INFERNO

Verses Of Fire’s sound has been carefully manufactured by Andrew Guillotin in Hybreed Studios. Focusing on a more organic side thanks to the use of tube amps and natural drums, the production allows the natural old-school feeling of the band to shine through the whole album. Through ten tracks – lasting about an hour – TEMPLE OF BAAL explores a wide spectre of extreme metal: from raging blast beats and thrashing riffs, through haunted mid tempo vibes, and up to the point of band’s primal influence – the sinister sounds of early 90’s black/death metal.

New material will be available in digipack CDlimited double LP and extra limited gold LP (66 copies only).

Fans of the band can expect a fine blend between “Lightslaying Rituals” (sophomore release, 2009) aggression and the last split CD“The Vision Of Fading Mankind”‘s (2011) epic atmospheres.

Tracklist:

1. το αστέρι 418

2. Bloodangel

3. Arcana Silentium

4. The 10th Aethyr

5. Gates Of Death

6. Gnosis Of Fire

7. Golden Wings Of Azazel

8. Lord Of The Raging Seas

9. Serpens Luminis

10. Walls Of Fire

Masterminded by Michael Bjella, GOG has toiled in the underground noise community for a decade, releasing records that have been widely respected and regarded as essential in experimental/noise/soundscape circles.

On the band, Michael Bjella states:

“I started GOG to explore the darker sides of thought and life. I want to create things without restriction and form that can transport people and possibly make them confront their own fears. Things that are truly dark but have contrast. To borrow a line from one of my favorite artists, in case there might be harmony, then it is the harmony of accident, of chaos. I’m not trying to make harmony… “

DISSENSION Announce Debut Album Release Date, Streaming Title Track

amr_logo_smal_570Montreal, QC based metal band DISSENSION is proud to announce the upcoming release of their debut album ‘Of Time And Chronic Disease’ digitally worldwide on September 10 through Believe Digital along with it being sold physically on vinyl.

Sharing the stage with international heavyweights like Tyr, Threat Signal and Cryptopsy plus performing in front of their hometown crowd at Heavy MTL 2011 along with recently being finalists at Wacken Metal Battle Canada, Dissension’s eclectic mix of thrash, black and power metal attacks the darker side of human nature, reaching epic heights and somber depths.

Dissension is now streaming their first single off the debut at the following links below.

Vocalist / guitarist Nathan Afilalo comments:

“Having been a band for about six years, we have long anticipated the great day where we could let our music take flight upon the winds of the world.  With that in mind, Of Time and Chronic Disease is a summation of our music since it contains some of our very earliest songs to some of our latest. The album has to be taken as a whole, as the individual songs all represent a different facet of the whole that is our music. It’s like a hydra, the beast can only truly be slain if you remove all of its heads and immerse yourself in the dark pools of its blood.”

The band will be holding CD launch in Montreal, QC on September 13th at Foufounes Electriques with local support from Skeleris, Murtenscythe, Intonate, Citizen Vicious.
