NEXILVA release new song 'The Misdirection of God' ahead of release of new album Eschatologies out April 7

Tuesday 22nd April, 2014

The UK's finest young hope for progressive death metal, Nexilva, have today released a new track from their upcoming album, Eschatologies, out April 7th.

Have a listen to 'The Misdirection of God' right here:

A rollercoaster of a ride through the lands of deathcore, black, death, and technical metal, Eschatologies is a disarmingly progressive and mature release from an impressively young band. All aged from 20-22, Nexilva grew from a passionate urge to simply create; this certainly comes across in Eschatologies, the band’s third release. The product of over eighteen months of careful craftsmanship, it’s an album both earth-shattering and apocalyptic. From the fantastical (demonic prophecies and living dead epidemics) to the realistic (nuclear devastation), Eschatologies takes you on a journey which you’ll be craving to repeat again and again.

As impressive live as in the studio, Nexilva caught the eyes of Metal Hammer and Terrorizer at Tech-Fest 2013, having played the same festival the previous year. Young veterans of the death metal circuit, the band have undertaken four UK headline tours, toured with Exist Immortal and played alongside Aliases and The Algorithm; a fairly incredible feat considering Nexilva are barely out of their teens.

SUBLIMINAL GROOVE RECORDS announce XEHANORT signing; lyric video and remastered album released in celebration

Tuesday 22nd April, 2014

Canada-based progressive gurus Subliminal Groove Records are delighted to announce the signing of one-man prog-deathcore maverick, Xehanort, and with it the remastered release of his 2013 album Awaken in a Different Dimension, due March 11.

You can pre-order physical copies of Awaken in a Different Dimension here:

Every so often a new voice enters, breathing new life into the scene and raising the bar. Xehanort is one such voice, a one-man machine who at once defines the term maverick and defies generic conventions. A unique blend of progressive, technical, black metal and deathcore, Xehanort and his album Awaken in a Different Dimension is at once brutal and confounding, the next level in the world of progressive death metal.

Entirely self-produced, recorded, performed and mixed by the man himself, Awaken in a Different Dimension is a video game-inspired concept album detailing the trials and tribulations of a character lost in a foreign land. Remixed and remastered for physical release through Subliminal Groove, the CD release comes with plenty of goodies for like-minded producers and engineers, including instrument stems, raw mixing files, and a 'making-of' behind the scenes video.

Russian alternative metallers PLANARA announce debut EP; release teaser single track in anticipation

Tuesday 22nd April, 2014

Russia’s brightest alternative metal hope PLANARA are set to release their debut EP Hostiles worldwide on 24 March. In celebration of the news, the band are pleased to announce the release of a teaser single from the upcoming EP.

Check out 'Enslaved' here:

A band yet to even celebrate their first birthday, Planara have already succeeded in creating a sound which pushes the boundaries of alternative metal and post-hardcore. A cataclysmic 5-track record combining technicality, infectious melody, polished production and electronic influences, Hostiles is a release set to breathe new life into Russian metal and beyond.

A refreshing complete and well-rounded EP which touches on technical metal and alternative rock, Hostiles is at heart a concept release, centred on the perception and nature of hostility, on communication and interaction between individuals.

Overcoming financial and social obstacles in the form of indifference, corruption and stagnation in their local music industry, battling substance addiction and the vast logistical distances of their home country, Planara are a band on the rise. Having released their debut single and video late last year, and recording their debut LP later this year, this is a band you'll be sure to hear plenty more of.

Israel's FERIUM to release debut album 'Reflections' April 7 via Transcend

Monday 17th February, 2014

Israeli metal band FERIUM play a furious form of metal incorporating bruising blasts, crushing grooves and throat curdling vocals. They release their debut album‘Reflections’ via Transcend Music on 7 April 2014, and it’s one of the most genuinely angry and pain ridden records of this decade.

It’s not often you hear a metal band whose lyrics and musical interpretations of struggle and pain are something other than fantastical, but this is not the case with FERIUM. Having grown up in the city Haifa, living in constant fear of attack and the threat of violence is everyday for this young band. Although they have no political messages or affiliations, the constant strains on their lives and tragedies experienced have indirectly inspired this raw and uncompromising metallic barrage of an album.

Formed in 2006, FERIUM were initially inspired by Pantera and Lamb Of God but over time influence from the likes of Textures, Gojira, Death and more found its way into their sound. 2009 saw their first EP 'The New Law' which gained the band international recognition, enabling them to play large local events such as Summer Carnage andHallelujah, but also shows outside of their homeland, including Wacken 2009. 2013 saw the band return to tour Europe/UK supporting The Agonist and Threat Signal.

Featuring cover art by Eliran Kantor (Hatebreed, Sodom, Atheist), 'Reflections' is the culmination of four years of hardwork, pain, passion, anger and hatred, which has resulted in something so furious it’s not for the faint hearted.

FERIUM return to the UK and Europe touring with Uneven Structure and Hacride. Catch them on the following dates:

04/04 - Brescia (IT) - Circolo Colony
05/04 - Calenzano/Florence (IT) - Cycle Club
06/04 - Munich (DE) - Backstage club
08/04 - Hannover (DE) - Lux
09/04 - Koln (DE) - Underground
11/04 - Durbuy (BE) - Durbuy Rock Festival (HACRIDE ONLY)
13/04 - Venlo (NL) - Perron 55
15/04 - Cardiff (UK) - Fuel Rock Club
16/04 - Wakefield (UK) - Warehouse23
17/04 - Glasgow (UK) - Ivory Blacks
18/04 - Selby (UK) - Riverside
19/04 - Kingston (UK) - The Peel
