Solid atmospheric Dark Arts


Cologne based Dark Metallers ATRIUM NOCTIS recently have completed the studio works for the album successor to the 2010 published "Home".

For the new album "Aeterni", the newly reorganized band around Hydra Gorgonia went on some new as well as enhanced artistic paths. Thus, the formation reminds often of Dimmu Borgir.

Inside the actual core still devoted to the symphonic BLACK METAL, were sometimes weaved also Pagan Metal elements. Especially influences from Classical Music give the new output also a pronounced autonomy. The new songs, with a thick weft of hardness, are characterized by massive dark atmosphere .

Even melancholic, in parts anthemic and emotional passages, are to hear. Epic and colorful nuances enrich the whole thing additionally.

ATRIUM NOCTIS love big sounds and have come loose largely from the genre-boundaries of Black Metal, to raise songs as "Datura Noir" and "Die Nacht des Falken". Several singers are involved, which is a guarantee of wide vocal variety, together with German lyrics. Full prescribed to melody, the collaboration of the band is based on two guitarists.

The band members have different musical backgrounds: included are people who have spent their lives played Metal, but have a lot of joy to other styles of music. Likewise, a deep-black soul from the Black Metal, a singer with a classical education and two studied musicians, who are open to everything. You can hear and feel: they have lost all their heart to the music of ATRIUM NOCTIS.

The new songs were mastered by well known Martin Buchwalter, who has produced such established bands as Accu§er, Destruction, Suidakra, Tankard, Architects Of Chaoz und Perzonal War.

Frontcover and CD booklet have been made by a painter regarding the exact requirements of the group.
With "Aeterni" the Cologne aspire successfully more for authenticity and to the roots of the formation.
Likewise, they have no zeal to copy any band. They also don't follow any trends.
They simply make their own and completely individual music.

Brutal quality

In their first line-up, BETRAYAL was founded at the beginning of 2005. The band rapidly achieved brighter recognition in the Region of Aschaffenburg, Bavaria.

After various line-up changes and a long break thereafter, the band regrouped at the beginning of 2015. A Demo Tape followed in 2015.

The debut album "Infinite Circles" has been released in June 2016. Even if their sound-range has widened since the beginnings, BETRAYAL remains true to DEATH METAL.

BETRAYAL have a significant preference for the overwhelming legacy of US originators Death, as one hears quickly in the often similar liquid songs of the fit German Quartet.

The stylistically interesting intersection of the audibly enthusiastic formation around shouter Alex quotes in an original way established acts such as At The Gates, Hypocrisy and Edge Of Sanity. Early Arch Enemy may also be used as a cross reference.

Sophisticated technical and rhythmic parts alternate with brutal riffs, melodies and thundering blast-beat attacks. At this point, BETRAYAL is more motivated than ever to persuade the audience live and on record.

"I have never heard such a brutal blend of noble heaviness, technical magic without being boring, feeling and, to re-use a previous adjective, savagery … I recommend this album to everyone who is into intelligent Melodic Death Metal."

"Very technical Death Metal, very varied, with an alternating classic and devastating side to melody … in a lethal mix of American and Scandinavian sounds for being out of breath … the group therefore does not fail to surprise with brilliant ideas ('The Shell' includes an atmospherically, beautiful sax) and scores from intricate progressive references, to please a little all fans of extreme music … with references to Soilwork, Darkane, Death and the first Opeth … recommended."

(Metal.de)

"BETRAYAL is a promising melodic Death Metal new-blood hailing from Aschaffenburg, Germany … their new album 'Infinite Circles' is one of the most impressive debuts I’ve heard this year, mixing the technicality and high/low vocal attack of The Black Dahlia Murder, the venom and dynamism of Arsis along with some proggy undertones that call to mind bands like Extol, all firmly rooted by a very The Absence-esque dedication to the best of tried and true melodic Death Metal convention.“
(No Clean Singing)

"… reasonably can provoke the listener to maximum headbang."
(IRS Radio)

"BETRAYAL display a fusion of brutal Death Metal and Melodic Death Metal with riffs leaning towards Black Metal … I’ve mentioned extreme music kind of lost its edge with its mainstream acceptance, but BETRAYAL is an example of how to become accessible while holding on to your roots …  the band combines these elements in an unforced forward thrust that sounds undeniably convincing from start to finish."

Melodic flaming Thrash inferno

In 2010 raised on the legs by drummer Jonas and bassist / singer Jan in gray Cologne Industrial dump Wesseling, MORTAL PERIL quickly found their own THRASH METAL style. Raw, edgy, dynamic, carefree, brave and full on the bell. And said features have not changed in the least.

Dirty garnished is the technically emphasized, multifaceted output until today with snotty Punk sprinklings. An energetically moving and martial mixture, which has it simply damn in itself. The line-up has been specifically reinforced in addition, first live gigs were played. There was no turning back. Forward but it was intended in large increments. 


Two years later MORTAL PERIL popped out their bone-breaking EP "Of Black Days And Cruel Alliances" in small numbers and with big enthusiasm.

And the proverbial round thing came really good. Positive reviews were earned not only from Germany but also in Italy, France and South America heads were shaken with joy to the dewy songs. The signs pointed to storm!

With a modified cast and accordingly well attuned was added the debut album "Walking On Hellish Trails" in self-financed manner to their own. Officially published was the substantial disk in cold February 2015, but it could warm up many Thrash hearts just fine.

And as the extremely ambitious line-up already showed on "Walking On Hellish Trails" a remarkably striking development, MORTAL PERIL accomplished for the new, second album "The Legacy Of War" again a fruitful conversion towards professionalism and sovereignty.

Rampant galloping and completely coming to the point tracks as the infectious rhythmic precision neckbreaker „Seed Of Hate“ illustrate the successful efforts of the parties to constant refinement and optimization of their music.

The classic NWOBHM melodies still ride stormy and frenetically through the tight lashing THRASH METAL sound of the roundabout genuine quartet, which makes the discovery of nine new hard numbers anew very exciting.

Official release date of the new cannonball "The Legacy Of War" was on May 21st, 2016. MORTAL PERIL will celebrate this Thrash relevant occasion with a hefty release show on the same day on the Bergisch Metal Festival accordingly duly loud, wild and crazy !

MEDIA FEEDBACK for MORTAL PERIL "The Legacy Of War":

666 / 5
Some tracks that stand out and tempt me to hit the replay button are “Creeping Apocalypse”, “Psychotic” and “Gladiator” as they contain very catchy and beautifully composed guitar melodies that really compliment the fast and precise drum work … a little fact about the drums and guitars that impressed me was that all drum work on this album was done in one take (not to be mistaken for first take) … the guitars I’m told were all done 3 to 4 takes, which makes a undeniable statement about their abilities as both individuals and as a group … for any Thrash fan I can guarantee you that by the time the this album is through, you’ll have a new favorite band."

"With their second full-length album since first forming back in 2010 the four members of MORTAL PERIL push everything to the absolute limit … frankly-speaking this the kind of album that many bands dream about but are never able to achieve … I can't help but imagine a new generation of kids using this album as an outlet in much the same way that I used tapes by KREATOR, SODOM, and DESTRUCTION! Needless to say, "The Legacy Of War" is A+ release and it comes HIGHLY recommend!"

Debut album casts long, dark shadows

BLOODRED have started the recording for the longed-for by many debut album in summer 2015. 


For this the head of the band, Ron Merz, has teamed up with Alexander Krull (ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES) in its Mastersound Studio in Germany mid of July.
For the two it was to continue the successful BLACKENED DEATH METAL cooperation from the year before last year.

Recording master Krull produced the whole and took over mixing and mastering. 
After the critically acclaimed EP "The Lost Ones", which was released in August 2014, the done co-operative represented the second collaboration of this proven team. 



[ Picture: Stefan Heilemann / Heilemania ]

In the technically well-equipped halls of the renowned Mastersound Studios releases of known acts like ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES, BELPHEGOR and OBSCURA have already been provided with a great sound. The guitars got recorded under the direction of Thorsten Bauer (ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES). 


Once more with the mystical game in Swabian realms was also Joris Nijenhuis (ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES), who played the drums just as it did at 2014 EP "The Lost Ones".

BLOODRED mastermind, singer and multi-instrumentalist Ron Merz comments:
"I was insanely blazed with great joy at the new recording sessions! In the Mastersound one can work as relaxed as fully focused. And Alex was always close with words and deeds." 


Equally important to the studious BLOODRED main actor is the competent and experienced Joris Nijenhuis who plays the drum parts for the upcoming longplay crusher:
"Joris is a world-class drummer, bringing in a whole new way ennobling, powerful dimension to my music with its style!".

Lyric Video for the new song "The Hail-Storm":

The official release of the debut album strike of BLOODRED, entitled "Nemesis", was on April 8th, 2016.

MEDIA FEEDBACK for BLOODRED "Nemesis":

86 / 100
"BLOODRED breaks away from these stereotypes … the production is crystal clear and the songwriting is exciting … of course there’s blasting violence, but there’s also epic riffing and beautiful melodies on 'Nemesis' … and then there’s the drumming. Wow. Just like on the band’s debut EP drumming on Nemesis is Joris Nijenhuis. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, maybe his other bands do, ATROCITY and LEAVES’ EYES? And that’s where it gets interesting … if I had to name a favorite song of the album, it would probably be 'Hail Storm' … it contains so much power, it’s epic, but most of all, it’s a headbang-inferno! If you listen to this song and manage to stay absolutely still, you’re no metal fan!"
(Inside The Coffin)

"… this is another great sounding recording from BLOODRED and if you are a fan of melodic, blackened Death Metal, you should check out this album."

"Overall, speed, rapid changes and compositional serenity reigns each of his songs … the thing is so orderly and went really spoiled so that this all perfectly in the proper place … listening becomes enjoyable … the majority weight passes through the rhythmic layers and their constant allusions to the school of Stockholm and Gothenburg …"
(Friedhof)

7 / 10
"What caught my attention is also how Mr. Merz uses the riffs and the vocals … the riffs are mostly Black Metal whereas the vocals give the album that Death Metal feeling … soundwise, the record is quite technical so the fans of the technical side of the genre will enjoy this record more … the style even reminded me of a less melodic version of Tuomas Saukkonen’s WOLFHEART or even his previous projects."
(Melody Of The Soul)

3,5 / 5
"Once again, Atrocity/Leaves Eyes drummer Joris Nijenhuis supplies the battery here and frontman Alex Krull serves as producer – and both do suitably stellar work … and once again, Merz serves up some gritty Black/Death Metal … though with a few twists that make for a nicely varied and unpredictable end result … never indulgent, but always adventurous, Merz makes a real statement with BLOODRED's debut. It will be interesting to see where he takes things from here, and with whom."
(Metal Rules)

10 / 15
(Legacy)

"I really tried to find the disadvantages of this album but I struggled a lot … the vocals are almost perfect for the kind of serving … I loved the drums and was impressed by the maturity of Joris Nijenhuis’s technique, who seems to well hold the his instrument and gives a darker tone with his aggressive playing style … guitars are my favorite in the album … I know I’ll hear many nice things from BLOODRED because such a job (and I say it with both concepts) must have a continuity … "Nemesis" is essentially a Black Metal music release that will make many people to change their mind about the genre and to review whether Death Metal can hold as a sub in something else."
(R1 Radio)

"An excellent place to introduce yourself to this album would be via the single “The Hail-Storm” (for which a video complete with lyrics can be viewed just below) … this song is based on a poem of the same name that was adapted and translated by English author and linguist George Borrow, retelling a story that was originally part of the Jómsvíkinga saga. (For those especially interested in literary history, there is some further background about the efforts of Borrow and some of his contemporaries to translate a series of Kjæmpeviser (“Heroic Ballads”) from old Danish, in the introduction to this pamphlet that reprinted another of Borrow’s translated ballads …"
(Valley Of Steel)

"The songs combine all the strengths: High-speed meets haunting melodies and powerful riffs connect with atmospheric parts… while the songs are all cut from very similar cloth, it is fair to say that Ron Merz has written a collection with enough diversity to stop it all becoming one long roar  … for all the relentless intensity – it really barely lets up at all from start to finish – there is a good balance between Power Metal gallop and discordant blasting, with both interspersed by slowed down, highly melodic bridges where the old-timey melodies are really given opportunity to soar … the drumming is competent … overall, the production job on this album is done really well and would be fit a full-length easily thanks to the Mastersound Studio again and Alexander Krull from ATROCITY."
(Absit Omen)

"… described as having its heart set in the Death Metal and Black Metal realms, but 'Nemesis' sees BLOODRED expanding its focus a bit — into a more melodic mindset than what the project’s initial description would imply … mixed with some epic-sounding symphonic work and and a quick-moving tempo … filled with catchy melodies and a surprising amount of hefty-blast work on the drum front … for such an unassuming and out-of-nowhere appearance for this project, BLOODRED has proven to be a massive surprise — filled with galloping riffs and hefty melodic sections that could easily hold appeal for people who love groups like Amon Amarth."
(No Clean Singing)

"Are you Deathster oder Blackster, because it does not matter ... it may sound a bit old fashioned ... but the record is just great! That you have to have! Well done Ron ... very , very well done."

"… the third album is the album of maturity … it's been that way for many, many bands and, apparently, OVERTURES can not escape this rule … crafting in this 2016 a disc, nothing short of perfect, a nice Power-Heavy product that will appeal not only to lovers of kind, but music lovers in general."
(Antonio Moliterni)

9,5 / 10
"To summarize the new OVERTURES album , 'Artifacts' for me this year is the most complex, best composed Power Metal album I've ever heard … it has it all, a love for bands like Stratovarius , Helloween or just Sonata Arctica … the album's greatest strength is that they do not want to copy anyone … a Power / Heavy Metal emerges that is unique, yet draws from others … good work and any number of tools in a separate masterpiece, which was beautifully shaped note for note by the Italian craftsmen."

"The aforementioned varied vocals contributes a lot to boost the album: it ranges from slight guttural elements up to the typical Heavy Metal falsetto ("Angry animals"), always providing surprising effects that reflect the mix of styles given by Overtures … a great album that perfectly predicates the meaning of our rating 'Epic'"

"… no doubt that the band reached its peak with "Artifacts" … all that was sent and / or at least demonstrated on its predecessor here comes alive … the sound proposal shows balance, cohesion and much pomp! Okay produced and without exaggeration … singer Michele Guaitoli imposes its lines with a consistent and tasteful interpretation, which only makes the band earn points … just listen to tracks like 'Artifacts', 'Profiled', 'Unshared Worlds' , the epic 'Teardrop' and wild 'Angry Animals' to prove these elements … a tasteful disk that does not invent anything, but adds a lot."

"The combination of traditional / classic and modern they are doing incredibly well … then I just repeat my thoughts on the album cover!"
(Get Metal)

4 / 5
"… eleven songs, very colorful … the duration of the album is high because you exceed the fifty-seven minutes of music … you will find a lot of interesting things, both in terms of style that the emotions aroused level … the matrix, the framework is to power and of this kind we find in almost all the classic features that will repeat for the last time: double bass and vocals that travels over medium high register … missing keyboard / guitar duels and the donut would round with the hole, but no … no duels! And it is precisely the absence of key-guitar duels that differentiates and personalizes this band in the sea of ​​Power Metal … it is a "Repentance" demonstration where these elements are set well right from the start, in which Michele Guaitoli juggles well giving us the first really inspired interpretation … his singing style, very personal, strikes us immediately and you can bring to a Tobias Sammet, but with much greater say, combined with a vibrato that reminds us of Fabio Lione …"
(Rock Rebel)

4 / 5
"Michele Guaitoli is a great vocalist and reminds me of both Geoff Tate and Roy Khan and as for the rest of the band members themselves; not much can be said except for absolutely brilliant … the production and mixing really come across like a well finished product instead of being over polished and the flowing and transition between heavy riffs, leads, and melodic passages in the album is working perfect … the balance and the variation in all the songs makes that you most likely will listen to them many times … I don't really dislike anything about this album … these guys are now probably among my favourite Metal/Prog bands of today and absolutely worth checking out!"
(Melodic.net)

"For OVERTURES, 'Artifacts' is another fine album of creative and engaging Progressive Power Metal, displaying both their ever increasing musical talent and maturity … recommended."
(Dangerdog)

"More than suggested album, where you can find songs, songwriting, emotions and touching feelings with a strong acoustic and emotional impact. Another proof that when music is well done still exists, in Italy too, and that there is no constant need to look for it somewhere else, when we have that kind of bands close to our home. Absolutely recommended album, this 'Artifacts', and absolutely recommended band: OVERTURES."
(Underground Zine)

8,5 / 10
"The fact is that "Artifacts" is an extremely interesting album all the way … this record is so difficult to be categorized; it includes a classic Metal sound in it, strong progressive 'touches', big melodies, great guitar work and a 'modern' Metal approach that makes it a must have for each and every single fan of the Metal scene in general."

"The band blatantly mixes melodic Prog with Power Metal, injecting some Gothic Metal to boot … best described as something like Nightwish meeting Arrayan Path with a stout handful of Avantasia … should you buy the record? If you like a quirky Progressive Power Metal full of melodic hooks and turns, never leaving you bored at any moment, go for it … if you are not sure, give it a try anyway … they are good, you know … and we got ourselves a contender for the Top 10 list of 2016."

"… we are faced not only with the Melodic Metal, but also with Progressive Metal , Power Metal and even Hardrock … in the choruses , always very melodic, shoots the voice of vocalist Michele Guaitoli for a resemblance to Bruce Dickinson, even if only for a few seconds … even the songwriting sometimes remembers on Iron Maiden and even Europe … but OVERTURES create a different symphonic environment and quality …"

"The new work, mastered in the Gate Studios in Germany , between the walls of which has worked with people of the caliber of Avantasia, Edguy and Epica is a good example of various Prog Metal … very melodic, sometimes by dramatic look … OVERTURES use the weapon of melody and rhythmic Hard Rock very well, managing to make its personnel and extremely fascinating work."

"The band sounds compact and precise … with a tough rhythm section but varied … of all the components stand out technically guitarist Mark Falanga and the singer Michele Guaitoli, whose respective performances, however, are actually cross and opera delight, as even executions are too adhering to a sort of imaginary list of features to have in a given musical movement."
(Spazio Rock)

7 / 10
"What is it with the Italians at the moment? Another month and another batch of quality Metal releases land on the doormat … if you ask the artist however, success in their home county is still lacking with the more traditional Italian sounds as well as Pop music still diving the saes numbers … everything about the band presents a solid, professional, classy image and their musicianship is second to none … they would be the perfect mid-afternoon band at festivals such as Masters Of Rock."
(Powerplay)

"The listening experience completed by choirs and string instruments will stay with you long after the album concludes, and will be more than enough to tide you over until the next album."
(Dave Wolff - Autoeroticasphyxium Zine)

"… 'Artifacts', and we repeat it again, is a class record of a top band that perfectly blended elements from several different Metal to Hard Rock styles … an intense, heartwarming and beautiful whole … without more so a must for fans of good old school Heavy to Power Metal, with a high sing-along and headbanging content … impressed!"
(Snooze Control)

"The songs are compositionally-sound, with some decent writing by a band who know their style and their audience inside out … these tracks are quite memorable and catchy in places, with stirring refrains and plenty of upbeat melodies to enjoy … I like a good Heavy Metal album, and with Artifacts Overtures have produced quite an enjoyable feast of sugary ear-candy."
(Wonderbox Metal)

"The songs are harmonious, rhythmic and have catchy qualities. Impelling, fast and melodic, just like I like it. The voice of Michele is gentle, flattering and yet clear and really reminds me of a mix of Michi Kiske and Andi Deris … the music is fast, hard and clear … exactly the right kind of sound you'd love to hear on a long highway…"
(Bad Black Unicorn)

"From the opening bars of ‘Repentance‘ the maturity of the band is obvious, both from the musicianship through to the production… title track ‘Artifacts‘ is enjoyable … together with the following track ‘Gold‘ it probably rates as one of my favourites on the album … pounding drums, wailing guitars and a bass line fit to wobble your drink off the table … it’s everything that Progressive Metal should be … to sum up, certainly an album worth checking out and I shall be checking out their previous two releases into the bargain!"
(Rockposer)

"Apart from any other remarkable facts, which undoubtedly directly earn interest is the moving theatrical interpretation of the frontman and the natural melodies of titles such as "Gold", "As Candles We Burn", "Teardrop" and "Savior"."
(Rockin' Athens)

"You could go on forever and really pick out every single song, because no vulnerability can be found … the songs are catchy, but due to the intelligent songwriting after x-times, listening to them is still interesting … coronation then comes with the over 10 minutes suite "Teardrop". Class! Power Metal fans, Prog Metallers, traditionalists can ... or better, should check it out. It is worth it!"
(Totentanz)

"This year's OVERTURES sound more meaningful and inspiring than ever … this is because their fourth release offers spectacle, vision and skill in composing something unusual and unique … just think that if you ask what does it "sounds like" the answer is: "nothing"."
(Rock 'n Roll Monuments)

"Italy's OVERTURES; a band infusing the Power Metal theatrics of Kamelot and the progressive intricacy of Dream Theater … the music has all the flair of power and the complexity of Prog, but there is an added heaviness to give the music that extra kick."
(Script The Darkness)

"… elegant and tasteful is what breathes every bit of this, the third album of OVERTURES … they are defined as Melodic Heavy Metal but add touches of Progressive Metal that at times reminiscent of 80s Queensryche with some Power Metal … moments of "My Refuge" make me think that vocalist Michele Guaitoli has watched Geoff Tate with interest, especially during the first 'Operation Mindcrime' … the most complex moment they bring with the 10 minutes of the epic composition "Teardrop" with orchestral elements and some cinematic touch … choral work is bold … awesome … magnificent disk … a group that knows how to mix influences and give a distinctive character to its music."

‘The Chaotic Art’
SVOID was formed in December 2009 by ‘S’ with the intention to define a link between All and Nothing, which represents the formless End. The debut material, named ‘Ars Kha’ (means ‘Chaotic Art’), was developed in the Fall of 2010, consisting mostly Black Metal-influenced tunes. At this point of time Dániel joined on drums, and with this the first line-up was established. After the recordings, ‘Ars Kha’ was released in April of 2011.

To unleash SVOID as a live, ceremonial act, a live line-up had been also outlined, as György (guitars) and Péter (bass) joined to complete the devotion to emptiness. The first ceremony was performed by these four members on the magical night of Walpurgis in 2011.

While ‘Ars Kha’ was on its way, fragments of the first full-length material were composed during that cursed year. Musically, the centre was shifted to the corners of Void, and unbound progression beaten its path through different genres and built up the core, the essence of SVOID.

At the end of 2011 Péter found new ways and Tamás joined the band on guitars. The first full-length, entitled ‘To Never Return’ was recorded in May of 2012 in Abnormal Studio. The album was self-released in February 2013 in a special digipak case, and was distributed by Sun & Moon Records, Ván Records and Sigillvm Tenebrae Records.

‘Hallowed Nights’
The ensemble performed several ceremonies around Hungary, supporting acts like Enslaved, Winterfylleth, Year Of The Goat and Denial Of God. In Summer 2013, to perform and celebrate the hungry End, the band established an extemporal line-up with guest musicians on wind instruments, blowing reflections of Death deliberately for that eve. Thereafter, SVOID had some personnel changes – Tamás left the group for his own reasons and Gergő joined soon. György left the band in 2014, so with his leaving, the reborn line-up introduced itself on new rituals as a trio – to come close beyond.

‘Devil’s Blood’
Due to the major changes in the line-up and mind SVOID decided to declare a new aeon by unfolding a new instrumentation. For this purpose a very special cover was put together and recorded in 2015 which contained the track ‘Devil’s Blood‘ from Watain. The aim with this cover was highlight the depths and lawlessness of the musical abyss of SVOID. The record was released in 111 copies.

During these times while the band was working on the new material, transylvanian Sun & Moon Records signed SVOID to re-release the debut album ‘To Never Return’, which was finally released worldwide with the sincere support of the label.

‘Storming Voices’
With the features of the new line-up the band entered the studio in 2015 to record the second full-length album titled "Storming Voices Of Inner Devotion", which is out worldwide on 18th April, 2016 by Sun & Moon Records.

Lyric Video for the new song "Never To Redeem":

"It has been easily the best Hungarian album so far this year, regardless of styles or genres."

"Ultimately, a full and varied album, where the goal is clear … but you are completely unaware of the road to reach it …"
(Metalhead.it)

8 / 10
"… a very great sounding anti cosmic, post Black Metal band … and if you are looking for something very original, you should check out this band."
(Occult Black Metal Zine)

"… an expressly lowering and dismal mooded album which includes a lot to be explored … ambitious work."
(Hammerworld.hu)

(Ultraje.pt)

"All-in-all, I’m mightily impressed by SVOID and ‘Storming Voices Of Inner Devotion’ … this is a very good, intelligently crafted album with plenty to sate many a Metal fan throughout … as such, it comes with a healthy recommendation from yours truly."
(Man Of Much Metal)

3 / 5
(Get Metal)

"This is an album that is filled with beautifully written melodies which mix with a heavy atmosphere and vocals that create imagery in a beautiful poetic way … 'Storming Voices Of Inner Devotion' is an album that is filled with so much … the catchy music and its lyrical genius make this album one that is filled with an energy that has been put to its best use."
(Moshville)

"Black Metal acts often go to great lengths to standout from the pack and no one stands out better than Hungary's mysterious offering, SVOID."
(Metal At The Gates)

"SVOID's newest material is towering high above other inland bands, both in sound and in athosphere … as if we had to wander alone in grey emptiness aimlessly, it would be the background music."
(Langolo Gitarok)

"SVOID is on a very good way to make their name even more well-known and to create an individual sound by alloying particular elements of different genres … do not think of some mixed garbage, it's a precisely made product of exactly calculated ingredients … as the band have released Ars Kha (EP 2011) and To Never Return (debut album 2013) they left behind the "usual" Black Metal themes by degrees - and they also use new, more colorful and melodic lines instead."
(Rock Station)

"At all times I am kept entertained with a flurry of twisting riffs , takes so many turns in different directions it’s amazing how it manages to stay cohesive and well arranged … its great to hear the bass being put to work well in songs as too often it can become lost and almost non existent in a lot of Black Metal … a huge selling point of this album for me has to be the vocals which are fantastic they feature some haunting cleans to crazy vicious screaming … I think this is one of those rare albums that captures you out of the blue unawares … it gets you hooked and leaves you wanting more."
(Absit Omen)

"If you expect the "Storming Voices Of Inner Devotion" be like all other Post Black Metal releases full of heavy-laden progressive cues then I’m sorry … SVOID are not for you … if you expect well-polished commercial productions without any imagination and musical training, then again I'm sorry … SVOID do not suit you … but if you're looking for something completely new and original with much experimentation and open horizons, seeking emotion in every note, if you want something that will take your mind and dive you in the darkest corners of your being, then SVOID is your people."

Freak show of special class!

SCARLET ANGER returns with an impressive new collection of songs!

The Luxembourg based THRASH METAL act around singer Joe Block shows imposing size with highly original material.

And so so independently, rich in identity and intuitive advancing as SCARLET ANGER do on "Freak Show", very few representatives of the Thrash guild play.

The enormously diverse songwriting for "Freak Show" became even more catchy, darker and this time even mysterious designed.
And that allows plenty of room for unique, exciting atmospheres and moods.

Even with the sound of the new album the extremely playful guys move to high ground because JENS BOGREN took over the mastering in the famous Fascination Street Studios .
With "Freak Show" the constant quintet can go now for the big strike!

FACTS:
SCARLET ANGER is a Luxembourgish THRASH METAL band, founded in 2007 by vocalist Joe Block and guitarist Fred Molitor.

• Their first gigs were followed quite quickly by the release of a first EP, called „La Realidad Es Triste...“, whose successor "Kill The King" made the band noticeable on an international level for the first time.

• Being more aggressive and fast than its predecessor, "Kill The King" didn’t just earn a lot of critical acclaim but also gained the attention of the German label Dust On The Tracks. This led to a worldwide record deal for the first album "Dark Reign", which was mastered by ANNIHILATOR's JEFF WATERS and released by Dust On The Tracks Records in May 2012.

SCARLET ANGER presented their new album on numerous small and established festivals like the Durbuy Rock Festival and the Extremefest.

• In between their shows, SCARLET ANGER started gathering first ideas for the successor to "Dark Reign". Classic eighties and nineties comics and horror stories served as their main inspiration for what would later become their second album "Freak Show".

• Mastered by JENS BOGREN (Fascination Street Studios), the new album has a more melodic approach.

"Freak Show" will be released on March 18th 2016 via Hänsel & Gretel / MIG Music.

"I really thought that with 'Dark Reign' (2012), they reached a high level, but I was partially wrong, they show with the new album that they confirm the level they reached, and for the one or the other song on the new album, even did better … an amazing collaboration between the different actors in this group, quite recognizable when you listen to the tracks … an extra plus goes for the frontman, where I have to say that his vocal skills are getting louder and stronger, which I do enjoy."

"Another standout moment comes with the fast and furious 'Welcome To The Freak Show' which due to its guitar sound reminds of SLAYER, and nevertheless never forgets its playful side … 'The Abominable Master Gruesome' is another highlight that draws parallels to METAL CHURCH and also features an amazing guitar solo … 'Freak Show' is a very entertaining affair, no doubt about it, especially if the listener has a predilection for vintage Thrash Metal … this is an absolute must for fans of the genre … a truly amazing album …"

"SCARLET ANGER has created a colorful album that is lyrically-rich and (thankfully) about as far from ordinary as one can get! Musically-speaking this one falls somewhere between traditional Heavy Metal, Dark Metal and Power/Thrash Metal and for once we're talking about a band that doesn't particularly sound like anyone else! SCARLET ANGER simply doesn't go for the whole cookie-cutter Metal thing or at least they don't on the well-constructed "Freak Show". SCARLET ANGER will released "Freak Show" on March 18th so if you are a fan of Classic Metal, Dark Metal or Heavy Power Metal/Thrash be sure to mark that date down!"
(Heavy Metal Time Machine)

"With aggressive guitar work, insane vocals, and the freshest drumming I’ve heard in a long time, 'Freak Show' is absolutely an album worthy of my time and collection. Stand aside, Bay Area Thrash; European titans are coming to town!"
(Spitfire And Kickazz)

"SCARLET ANGER`s first instance to present their music is Thrash Metal … they are pretty good skilled musicians that have their own view on music and know how to hit with some raging riffs and tracks … thrashers in vein as fuck and they only let music bite everything around by sharp, precise and violent guitars … there is a room for everything on this album which incorporating slow songs that make difference to fast ones so the whole album is more diverse."
(Monarch Magazine)

"SCARLET ANGER are apparently struggling to find their own dimension within a Thrash Metal scene crowded and flooded with albums characterized by the most classic of 'copy-paste' … despite having yet to reach it, the taken direction seems the correct one … so I suggest you to keep an eye on and grab a ticket for their their "Freak Show" …"
(Aristocrazia)

"… packed with skill and style … mostly brutal and ferocious … it’s also very cool."
(Music Street Journal)

"… the quintet still officiates in a Thrash Metal record, old school, dynamic and well executed … rhythmic fast, with atypical songs and in place, effective guitar riffs, the specification is well filled for a style that still has its followers and SCARLET ANGER will satisfy with this new album without problems … served by a perfect production … the combo continues its musical way … fully expressed and perfectly … SCARLET ANGER richly deserves to become interested in their art."

Teutonic powerhouse

The 2013 published debut album was entitled "Never Surrender", which is in the 2007 founded Quartet completely to understand as a motto.

Accordingly, the Bavarian ironskulls are decided back now with the crisp four-track EP "Horse Of Hell". Official release was on 14th of November.

EISENHAUER pay homage to the classic HEAVY METAL with a strong Teutonic component, which is a guarantor for multiple uplifting moods.

Attractive earthy structures, invigorating powerful guitar work, commanding bass lines, powerfully drumming and a comprehensive impressive singer provide a variety of rocking high feelings.

Many of newer bands do not make it, but for EISENHAUER seems it an ease:
by effectively conclusive simplicity and exquisite originality these four enthusiastic disciples of steel cultivate an very own identity.

An exceptionally fine disc which should enable not only fans of GRAND MAGUS in rapture.

"EISENHAUER have superbly merged plenty of different styles, both influential to metal and staple ideas that formed from that very outcome, and it works out great to weave an engrossing, remarkably epic effort, making Horse of Hell one of the more vital releases to sneak through the underground for 2015."

"The guitar work on "Horse Of Hell" is second to none and it gives this band's Heavy Metal/Thrash sound a sweet touch of Rock and Roll! With Christian "Waxe" Wagner's voice serving as the cherry on the top of this metallic treat, EISENHAUER whips out four tracks of instantly enjoyable Metal that is all at once classic and modern in it's approach … Had I actually managed to compile a "Best Of" list for 2015 this EP would have made the cut as it's the complete package: Top notch songwriting and performances that is balanced out by a stellar production!"
(Heavy Metal Time Machine)

"Very well its sounds a bit of old school style and also a lil bit blended by the catchy Rock n Roll and Thrashing melodies … nice guitar works especially the solo parts … Teutonic Thrash might be one of their influenced I guess."
(Sangwitok)

"EISENHAUER rides those songs in best tradition of Teutonic Metal along with NWOBHM which is quite significant to this record … I could put my opinion under heavy machine gun fire and defend it … believing this is really True Metal as sometimes people say about similar records … inheritance of German Metal is presented very strongly on the EP and such mix of influences slowly making a prince becomes a king."
(Monarch Magazine)

"I can't say enough how "Horse Of Hell" satisfies those who are into traditional Heavy Metal, angling towards a future for the band in creating a legendary stamp of its own."

Standalone class

In the year 2012 RUNNING DEATH for the first time managed to be heard and saluted outside of the THRASH METAL underground, thanks to their EP titled "The Call Of Extinction". Their search for style, flow of ideas and songwriting started taking extraordinarily unique shapes on their just as playful as original release.

A major factor why fans and music media alike received it with highest praise is the plethora of wonderfully fresh ideas, the bavarian Thrash Metal exception around singer and guitarist Simon bring to life.

We write 2015, the year RUNNING DEATH released their shining debut album "Overdrive". Inspired to a huge extend by their experience on the road, playing highly explosive and headcrushing shows wherever they can, "Overdrive" is one of the most original, interesting and rewarding releases of it's own demonstratively sophisticated Thrash genre, that has made it into our ears for a long time. This is due a lot to the extraordinary vocals by axeman Simon, whose voice couldn't be less conformant. While others constantly scream with all they got, the RUNNING DEATH frontman prefers giving in fully to his own individuality.

In an ever so solid and exciting team with co-six-stringer Julian the guitars keep screaming high intensity riffs to your ears, even when the songs dive into some of the more progressive areas. Drummer Jakob as well is no small deal, besides keeping it professional all the time he is giving those surprising accents that listeners desiring for precision and complex rhythms enjoy so much. And especially if you're a fan of MEGADETH or the good old INTRUDER you should find just what you're looking for in this masterful bavarian band.

Their elaborate mix of old school Metal, timeless art and finest melodies together with a huge portion of idealism gives the quickly moving band a huge space to work and develop in. If you first are put off by their individuality, this will soon be what brings you back to their music over and over again.

Last but not least, all of the above also applies to the artistically as well as meaningful front cover artwork of "Overdrive", which helps RUNNING DEATH set apart from the broad masses a lot.

The four men from Kaufbeuren celebrate a well working mixture of talent, intellect, class and innovation as well as having the greatest fun working on their material. And you will feel that, I promise. If you want to verify all the above for yourself, please go ahead and let yourself be taken away by the richly detailed and energetic songs that as a whole make "Overdrive". Thank you!

"Some of the frilly licks and clinical harmonies assembled on the disc might contain small traces of DNA from Teutonic precursors like Mekong Delta, Destruction or even Deathrow, but I also found that this record had a lot in common with West Coast second tier thrashers of the 80s like Defiance, in particular that band's similarly clean and impactful sophomore 'Void Terra Firma'."

Musically Zeitgeist

In the 1930s it was stated, Blues would be the dangerous work of the Devil.
In the 1940s it was stated, Jazz & Swing were frightening excesses of the Devil.
In the 1950s it was stated, Rock'n'Roll would be the evil sound of the Devil.
In the 1960s it was stated, Beat would be the unpure music of the Devil.
In the 1970s it was stated, Rock music would be the corrupting sound of the Devil.
Well, and since the 1980s it was stated, Heavy Metal would be a diabolic spawn of the Devil.

What the much-reviled one heard in earlier centuries, is not officially known.
In any case, it seems clear that the ever pert bloke became really pretty musically, specifically over the last ten decades…
