ANiMAL is a three piece, bass-heavy EDM punk band from London that formed in 2012 with a residency on Modestep Radio and quickly moved to doing guest mixes for Radio 1Xtra, XFM, and Pulse.

After a European tour in the Summer of 2012, ANiMAL retreated to the studio to work on remixes, collaborations, and begin writing new material. Soon the band signed a publishing deal with EMI and took to the road again, for two trips around the UK. They finished the year releasing their first track, I Am Fire on the EDM label 2 Much Bass Records, and the track was later featured in the Ministry of Sound Bass Annual 2013. ANiMAL recently performed a live session for broadcast on BBC.

Kicking off 2013, ANiMAL is stepping up their game for the major European festivals by releasing their debut music video The Animal Cage.

Sweden’s ELDKRAFT Sign To Poison Tongue

Sweden‘s ELDKRAFT is a musical constellation whose primary foundation rests on epic metal while drawing experimental influences from ancestral musical traditions of the North and spiritual guidance of its hermetic crafts. Shaman, the debut album, is a psychedelic trip gazed upon through contemporary elements, circumnavigating journeys of knowledge, growth and the ecstasy of the soul.

Debut album Shaman available via Poison Tongue/Metal Blade in May of 2013. First single and artwork available online here

Comments Poison Tongue founder/PRIMORDIAL singer A.A. Nemtheanga on his latest signing:

“I was turned on to Eldkraft by Mortuus from Marduk and instantly recognized even its raw demo form here was something genuine, and it had the potential to be a massive pagan metal album. Not the cartoon stuff but the real deal, immersed in ancient shamanism and traditions with the spirit of Bathory somewhere deep in its bones…Eldkraft!”

Their first single, Gammal Krigare, as well as album art and pre-order bundles are available now at metalblade.com/eldkraft.

ELDKRAFT’s debut album, Shaman, will be released May 24 in Europe via Metal Blade Records on CD and LP and on CD on May 28 in North America.

2011 was the year when J. Sandin and H. Karlsson chose to embark on a different path, having reached the end of the line with previous projects and bands. After hearing demo recordings, Poison Tongue saw the potential of ELDKRAFT and expressed immediate interest.

With a record deal firmly in place, ELDKRAFT immortalized ten songs for their debut album in their own studio Epidemic, while N. Fjellstrom recorded the drums in studio Necromorbus. Mixing and mastering was completed under the watchful eye of Magnus Devo Andersson of Endarker Studio Sweden.

Shaman tracklisting:
1. Gammal Krigare
2. Undrets Tid
3. Fate’s Door
4. Moder Liv Till Grav
5. Ursprungskallan
6. Patterns
7. Granslos Grans
8. Grey Man
9. I Dodens Famn
10. Rimthurs

Swedish Death Metal Act, ENTRAILS, Announce Guest Vocalists

Swedish death metal act, ENTRAILS, has announced the guest vocalists to be featured on their upcoming third album Raging Death.

Artists confirmed to appear on Raging Death include: Kam Lee (BONE GNAWER, ex-MASSACRE), Jorgen Sandstrom (THE PROJECT HATE MCMXCIX, ex-GRAVE, ex-ENTOMBED), Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER a.o.) and Dan Swano (ex-EDGE OF SANITY). Fans will hear the guest vocalists on Death League.

Raging Death to be released May 14

Kam Lee:

“ENTRAILS is one of the best Death Metal bands around today hands down – and their track DEATH LEAGUE is just pure aggressive cut throat – true death metal in its most rawest and traditional form… the way death metal is meant to be played! When I was asked by the maniacs of ENTRAILS to lend my death growl vomit to the mix I was honored. But the fact that I’m sharing growls alongside other such legendary Swedish death metal vocalist – makes the brutality of the track even more so shredding! Like a cannibal mutant feeding frenzy of blood soaked gore… this track will make you bleed from the inside out!”

Dan Swano:

“I love working with Entrails. Their catchy brand of Death Metal is right up my alley. And when I heard that Kam Lee, Jorgen Sandstrom and some other major dudes we’re gonna join forces in a track, I happily accepted the invitation without to blink. A kick ass experience indeed! Make sure you hear it!”

Rogga Johansson:

“When asked to do some growling on a track by Entrails all I could think was ‘Fuck yes!’ I’ve been a fan of the band for a long, long time, as I had old recordings on a tape I got from a friend. And when I learned that I’d be in such awesome company as the legends guesting, I was even more happy about it! And the song fucken’ crushes!”

Jorgen Sandstrom:

“I did not hesitate a second when Adde asked me to do some vocals for the new Entrails album but I had no idea that I was supposed to be in a song with these Sickos!!! If I knew I would had said yes in Planck time!! Death League FTW!”

Make sure to head over at metalblade.com/entrails to check out the artwork for Raging Death, as well as the first single In Pieces.

ENTRAILS comments on Raging Death:

“This is the perfect next step for ENTRAILS. A massive stench of death, right in your face! Raging Death as a title suited the album as a whole, since it’s pure death metal without mercy!”

Raging Death was recorded in different studios, the drum recordings took place at the Racetrack studios while the basis recordings were done at Jimmy Lundqvist’s own The Crypt recording studios. The album was mixed and mastered by Dan Swano at Unisound.

Raging Death tracklisting:
1. In Pieces
2. Carved To The Bone
3. Blood Hammer
4. Headless Dawn
5. Cadaverous Stench
6. Descend To The Beyond
7. Death League
8. Chained And Dragged
9. Defleshed
10. Cemetery Horrors

ENTRAILS formed in the ’90s, but split up before they were able to release a demo or even an album. It took them until 2008 to come back when guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist rediscovered some old tapes. In a moment of nostalgia, he decided that they deserved to be released as they should have been originally. With modern recording technology, the first ENTRAILS demo could finally take shape. After releasing another demo in 2009, ENTRAILS recorded and released their debut album, Tales From The Morgue, in 2010. Just a year later, The Tomb Awaits was released, an album that gained worldwide attention of music fans of the extreme and was considered by many as the best death metal release of 2011.

ENTRAILS:
Joakim Svensson – Vocals/Bass
Jimmy Lundqvist – Guitar
Mathias Nilsson – Guitar
Adde Mitroulis – Drums

MEMORY GARDEN Stream New Track

 

Swedish doom metal act, MEMORY GARDEN, launched the second single and title track taken off their upcoming album, Doomain, exclusively via the website of Metal Hammer Germany.

Make sure to also head to www.metalblade.com/memorygarden to check out the cover art, pre-order bundles, and the first single, The Evangelist.

Doomain was recorded at Annoying Sound Factory and SolnaSound Recording by the band with a little assistance engineering from Mike Wead (KING DIAMOND) during the lead guitar sessions. The mix was done by Dan Swano at Unisound.

The band elaborates:

“The recording of Doomain must be the most relaxed album session we’ve ever done. We recorded most of the album ourselves in our own studio and took the time we wanted and needed to get it done. Dan Swano helped us getting the rig together and he provided us with the tools to do it and from there we did it ourselves. The lead guitar sessions were done at SolnaSound Recording by Simon & Mike Wead. When it all was done it was sent to Dan Swano and Unisound for mix and mastering. The final album is amazing and we are so thrilled to get it out to all of you.”

Doomain to be released on April 16
