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!”

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.

1. In Pieces

4. Headless Dawn

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.

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

ANDY WINTERS Album Released Today

Andy Winter has been behind several noteworthy releases in the more progressive and avant-garde spectrum of the Norwegian post-black metal scene. His style of subdued, classically influenced progressive metal is probably not quite what most people think of when they hear the words Norwegian and metal mentioned together, as his music features a far more classical and progressive influenced sound than the groups of his usual co-collaborators.

He founded his first band in 1998, the quartet known as Winds, which consists of members from several well-known bands on the Norwegian metal scene (Mayhem, Arcturus, The Kovenant, Khold, etc.). From there he went on to form Age of Silence in 2004 (with members from Borknagar, Solefald, etc.). He has since participated on two records with Subterranean Masquerade and one with Self Spiller, in addition to recording a full length album with Sculptured (the side project with several members from the American folk metal band Agalloch).

Having kept busy making several records with his main bands throughout the 2000s, in addition to an instrumental piano EP as a solo artist, he started working on a new full length effort in 2008. His vision for this recording: To collaborate with some of the various musicians he had crossed paths with over the years, through his work in his own projects as well as some of the new friends encountered through being a The End Records artist for over a decade.

The result is Incomprehensible – a full-length album featuring the following tracks and vocalists:

1. Reversed Psychological Patterns (Agnete M. Kirkevaag of Madder Mortem)
2. My Illusions Are My Own (John Haughm of Agalloch)
3. Perfection Is The Blank Page (Kjetil Nordhus of Tristania, Trail of Tears & Green Carnation)
4. Somewhere Else To Disappear (Dan Swanö of Nightingale & Bloodbath)
5. Through The Eyes Of A Surrealist (Lars A. Nedland of Borknagar, Solefald & Age of Silence)
6. Far Beyond Autopilot (Heidi S. Tveitan of Star of Ash & Peccatum)
7. The Transversal Conjecture (Paul Kuhr of Novembers Doom & Subterranean Masquerade)
8. Back To Square Two (Lars E. Si of Winds, Before the Dawn & Sensa Anima)

Also appearing are Jan Axel von Blomberg (Mayhem, Arcturus & Winds), Carl August Tidemann (Winds & Arcturus), Øystein Moe (Winds & Ulver), Don Anderson (Agalloch & Sculptured) and Mike Young (The Devin Townsend Project). The album was produced by Andy Winter himself, mixed by Shaun Thingvold, mastered by Maor Appelbaum and features artwork by Travis Smith.

Having continued his approach of always applying a very genre-defying style, Incomprehensible is yet another unmistakable and unique record from Andy Winter, and one that provides a different experience altogether when compared to anything else in metal, or indeed most music.
