Los Angeles, CA – Gothenburg‘s metal bastards BOMBUS have completed their second blistering video for their Century Media debut albumTHE POET AND THE PARROT.

The band has teamed up with METAL HAMMER (UK) to premiere the video. Check it out here: www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/the-new-bombus-video-is-pretty-freaky/

Here is what BOMBUS had to say about the video:

“Enter the Night is, obviously since we’re using it as a video track, one of our favorites on the album. The song pretty much sums up what we’re about as it starts out as an aggressive rocker and ends on a more barren note. Behind the video is ex BOMBUS bass player Ulf – who totally has outdone himself with this video – where he lets BOMBUS enter and travel through his version of the night. Enjoy and buckle up!” – BOMBUS

THE POET AND THE PARROT will be in stores September 17 and will be available as a limited edition Digipak with 2 additional bonus tracks, as a standard CD and as a gatefold vinyl (180 gram on black or dark green wax).

Comments the band of their latest triumph:

“The fan reaction to Deceiver of the Gods around the globe is both amazing and overwhelming. Our fans are strong and true and we are humbled by the support. We look forward to visiting everyone on the road.”

Deceiver of the Gods released in North America via Metal Blade Records on June 25, was recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, UK, produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (Killswitch Engage, Megadeth, Opeth) and is reaping critical accolades internationally.

Deceiver of the Gods goes from rampaging to brooding to anthemic over a well-conceived trajectory… This is an album that begs to be consumed in its entirety at every listen, just to get the full experience” – Decibel Magazine

“No one delivers big, punch-in-the-face motifs better than AMON AMARTH, and the Swedish melodic-death-metal titans have excelled themselves on their ninth studio album… Not only does Johan Hegg deliver his fiercest growls ever, but he also duets mesmerizingly with operatic ex-Candlemass frontman Messiah Marcolin on Hel”Revolver Magazine

“easily one of the strongest and most diverse records the Swedes have ever made, gloriously extravagant, explosive blend of brutish riffing and unapologetic Maiden worship” – Metal Hammer

Literally invading U.S. shores, AMON AMARTH’s main stage slot on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest stuck awe into the hearts of media and fans alike when it opened last Saturday in San Bernardino, California. The band’s mammoth stage production, including a Viking Longboat and the amassing armies in the war between Odin and Loki, lit up the internet with excitement for the band’s set.

“the stunning stage production was what really made this AMON AMARTH show stand out from their own past shows, and indeed from all other bands that played this festival” – MetalAssault.com

In related news, AMON AMARTH is currently putting the finishing touches on the official video for colossal track Father Of The Wolf. The video will be unveiled in the coming weeks. Until then, check out the trailer now playing at the band’s microsite: http://deceiver.amonamarth.com

Erotik Nekrosis video clip

Formed in 1992 by Morten Shax under the original name of Dim Nagel, Shax changed the name to ENDEZZMA in 2007 after recruiting Trondr Nefas and transforming the band into what it is today. ENDEZZMA’s first release, the Alone MCD, appeared five years ago, and the 2012 release of the full length album Erotik Nekrosis on Agonia Records on November 28 in Europe (February 5 in the USA), was delayed by a series of setbacks, culminating in the tragic and untimely death of Nefas earlier this year. The line up on the album includes Morten Shax on vocals, Trondr Nefas (Urgehal, Beastcraft, Vulture Lord) and Thomas Myrvold (Vulture Lord) on guitars, Sregroth (Urgehal, Åsmegin) on bass,  Jarle Uruz Byberg  (Urgehal, ex-Shining) on drums and L.F.Frøislie (Wobbler, In Lingua Mortua) on synth. With its cold atmosphere straight out of the original Norwegian Black Metal scene, and its eerie, seductive compositions, Erotik Nekrosis is a tribute to Nefas whose contribution to the scene cannot be underestimated.

UNKIND Reveal New Album Details

Finnish hardcore heroes UNKIND revealed the album details for their upcoming sixth full-length entitled Pelon Juuret (Translation: Roots of Fear).

The album was recorded with producer Kari Nieminen at Noisecamp studios in Turku, Finland at the end of 2012. Pelon Juuret continues in the direction of the group’s previous work, offering up a furious fusion of d-beat hardcore crossed with a highly creative touch of atmospherics — as if Mogwai made a record of Tragedy covers or From Ashes Rise were influenced by Explosions In The Sky.

The album will be released on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records on July 9 in North America, July 8 in the UK/World, and July 5 in Germany, Benelux and Finland. A trailer for Pelon Juuret is available here while exclusive pre-order packages are available via Relapse here.

UNKIND previously released five full-length albums and a handful of vinyl-only releases.  The band’s catalog is available for streaming via their official Bandcamp page here.
