EnterLogo

French sowers of distinctive Black Metal, AOSOTH, premiered a video for Ritual Marks Of Penitence – the closing track off the new album entitled IV: Arrow In Heart. The video, directed by Matthieu Spinazzola and David Fitt, can be viewed at You Tube, below.

The AOSOTH track, Temple Of Knowledge made its debut on The Welding Room to open the March 18 (episode 105) just prior to the program jumping into a four-hour, Tuesday drive time slot on WRDR-DB.

First revealed song off IV: Arrow In Heart, can be streamed here: http://youtu.be/WFTvx9ZPpJc

AOSOTH will be also re-releasing their albums, II and III – both for the first time on black vinyl – along with the 4th album in their career on April 16 worldwide via Agonia Records.

IV: Arrow In Heart 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

The new release holds yet a bigger spiritual meaning, the band comments: “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.”

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

Tracklist:

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 shows:
May 9: La Boule Noire (Paris, France)
May 10: Ubu (Rennes, France)
May 25: Maryland Death Fest (USA)
November 17/18: Black Flames of Blasphemy (Helsinki, Finland)

Destroy All Monsters

 JapanDestroy All Monsters (怪獣総進撃)1968

Marvelous, weird kaiju film — set in 1999, the narrator explains that all the world’s monsters have been gathered on Monster Island (WHAT A CLEVER NAME) where they are contained and observed. There’s an underground base where the scientists monitor the monsters.

Suddenly, an alien race attacks and takes over control of the monsters, as well as the minds of the personnel at the base. A cumbersome-looking spaceship is dispatched from the Moon to investigate. Eventually the “Kilaaks” introduce themselves and present their demands, basically a place to live on Earth. By this time, the monsters, under Kilaak control, have decimated most of the world’s major cities, so the aliens don’t get much of a hearing.

A Media Blasters DVD was released (at long last) in November of 2011 with the original Japanese version. It sold out quickly. It’s a pleasure to be able…
