DARKHAUS Sign Worldwide Deal With SPV

Enter DARKHAUS:

An Intercontinental Modern Rock outfit consisting of 5 men from 4 representative countries (Scotland, US, Germany, Austria).

Band maestro Rupert Keplinger is a multi-platinum songwriter/composer best known for his collaborations with top selling artists such as Eisbrecher, Stephan Weidner, Oomph! and Peter Maffay, among others.

DARKHAUS co-creator Gary Meskil (founder of legendary US hardcore band PRO-PAIN) describes their sound as “stylistically versatile, dark and emotional, but with much light to be found at the end of the proverbial tunnel.”

The 5 architects of DARKHAUS combine their best efforts to present an ambitious and diverse plethora of songs which combine the urgency of true rock´n´roll, the epic moments which define great acts, and those “catchy hooks and melodies” like those which have been delivered straight to your ears via radio stations around the world throughout modern time.

For fans of emotionally inspired songwriting which has the power to move one’s body, mind, and soul.

 “I’ve always wanted to make music like this some day which is totally different from what I’m usually known for. Aside from Punk and Hardcore, I grew up with bands like The Cure, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Bauhaus and Depeche Mode – and those left a mark on me. With DARKHAUS, I can finally make it happen!”  – Gary Meskil

“Not only has every single member of DARKHAUS already proven their musical capabilities and skills – it’s the mixture of characters combined with the ambition to produce music that is totally opposed to what they did earlier. Oblivion/Steamhammer (SPV) is the perfect home for this. We’re glad to be able to work this.” – SPV A&R Gero Herrde

The DARKHAUS album debut will be released in Fall 2013 on Oblivion/Steamhammer (SPV).

AOSOTH Streaming New Song

French black metal outfit AOSOTH premiered a second song from the new full-length album entitled IV:Arrow In Heart, coming out April 16 worldwide on Agonia Records. The song Temple Of Knowledge is streaming exclusively here.

The first revealed song, An Arrow In Heart, is available here.

The new album is a natural improvement over bands previews release, entitled III, which already was “a major step forward for Aosoth in creating their own distinct sound” (Sputnik Music).

bandImg

 

Commented by the band itself,

IV:Arrow In Heart holds yet a bigger spiritual meaning: We’ve spent such a huge amount of time on defining a darker identity, yet open to a wider range of influences. Those tracks still haunt us, as delivering them was a painful and excruciating experience, and left some of us even physically wounded. Which gives that album even more of a spiritual value, as it involved a form of sacrifice.”

The band also added:

“This fourth full-length release is without a doubt a great step forward for us in term of music writing, and sound.”

At the time the new album will hit the shops, there will be available a re-release of AOSOTH’s II and III albums for the first time on black vinyl.

The album will consist of 6 original tracks and 56 minutes of music.

Tracklist for IV:Arrow In Heart:
1. An Arrow in Heart
2. One With The Prince With A Thousand Enemies
3. Temple of Knowledge
4. Under The Nails and Fingertips
5. Broken Dialogue 1
5. Broken Dialogue 2
6. Ritual Marks of Penitence

Upcoming live appearances include:
May 9: France, Paris – La Boule Noire
May 25: Maryland Death Fest (USA)
November 17/18, Helsinki, Finland: Black Flames of Blasphemy

About:

Upon being assembled in 2003 by founding members Martin Samson and Stef Jomphe in Gatineau, Insurrection has been growing, modulating and mutating into a machine of an aural onslaught. Assaulting witnesses in both languages of French and English, Insurrection has blended its calculated technicality to create a signature mixture of merciless death metal that has emerged from the prominent Canadian scene.

Shortly after their 2009 debut release Prologue, giving true life to their monstrosity, the formation launched their second release 2010’s Fracture, a dark prophecy of unforgivable times and a brutal soundtrack to the fall of man. It pushed the limits with every outing, creating Insurrection to become more than the sum of its parts, but a merciless abomination.

Now the band is gearing up for their follow up Prototype to push yet another brutal assault and tour cities across Canada to convert the unwitting to their legion.

Death metal needs fresh blood and let’s hope this album inspires some youngsters to steer away from the crap and come back to serious business”Metal Made in Canada

“This 5-piece monstrosity has struck again with precision, aggression and near perfection! INSURRECTION delivers a one of a kind album – solid and crushing from beginning to end”The Ottawa Epitaph
