Swedish band GRISLY, led by the tireless Rogga Johansson, has just revealed details of what will be their second album entitled “Salting the Earth” and which will be released again through Xtreem Music in August 3rd on CD & Digital formats.

GRISLY emerged in 2014 following the departure of bassist Dennis Blomberg from PAGANIZER, who continued to rehearse with Rogga and a local drummer named Henke Lundgren, with the sole intention of keeping the rotting flame of Death Metal alive.

Three years later, now with two new members in the band: Håkan Stuvermark (WOMBBATH) and Nicke Ohlsson (LEPROSY), GRISLY has incorporated more catchy melodies and melodies, already focusing entirely on Swedish sounds in the vein of DISMEMBER, EDGE OF SANITY, CARNAGE… making “Salting the Earth” a work that will outstand from the rest!!

DEFORMATORY unleash first single off upcoming album – Inversion of the Unseen Horizon – Out Sept 3rd


Deformatory has been a maelstrom of devastation since 2010, assaulting all in their wake with relentless sonic brutality. This year they are adding to their punishing catalogue with their third album “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon”, which was mixed and mastered by Topon Das (Fuck the Facts) from Apartment 2 Recording along with the artwork done by Paul Gerrard, who is a movie concept designer known for his imagery on Wrath of the Titans, Hellraiser: Origins and Hellboy.

In anticipation of what is sure to be one of the heaviest tech death albums of the year, Deformatory are luring listeners in with the first single “In The Embervoid Where Dead Stars Reign”, which can be heard via its premiere on Bravewords HERE

This is the third full-length album for Deformatory, following the 2011 EP “A Prelude Of…”; the 2013 full-length “In The Wake of Pestilence” and the 2016 full-length “Malediction”. The nine-track album is divided into three chapters, of which “In The Embervoid Where Dead Stars Reign” is the third song in the second chapter. 

Deformatory explains the album’s concept and how the single fits in:

“In our previous album “Malediction”, we explored the truth about Lucifer, who was an angel possessed by a far greater evil entity named Savael. We dove into his awakening and consequences for mankind. Our newest album reveals that Savael was but a mere droid in a complex hierarchy of vile entities, known as The Ce’naxors from a planet called Cyru’xil, whose Grand Arkitekt has an insatiable thirst for destroying life stars.

The single is about the aftermath of planetary consumption and its effect on the multiverse. How death and destruction breed new forms of life, including some unintended consequences for Cyru’xil.

This massively complex and intriguing album is just the tip of the iceberg for the brutal Ottawa duo. Fans of Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, and Origin should take note.

The album “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon” will be released on September 3, 2021.

For more info:

Deformatory is a death metal band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Forming in 2010, they set out to create an extreme sound, fusing together classic influences (Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, etc.) and their love for modern tech death. The result is a uniquely relentless blend of death metal that can only hail from the Northern hemisphere.

Deformatory independently released their full-length debut, “In The Wake of Pestilence”, in December of 2013. This pummeling 9-track debut has been exceptionally well-received by fans worldwide, and has been cited as being an “outstanding and monstrous debut album. Essential.” (Frank Rini – AllAboutTheRock, ex: Internal Bleeding), and “flawless in every way” (TheBloodShed).

Having shared the stage with bands like Cryptopsy, Napalm Death, Obscura, Beyond Creation, Gorod, Archspire, and Fuck The Facts, Deformatory is more than comfortable delivering their crushing brand of extreme metal to live, screaming, and sweaty audiences.

The band’s sophomore release, “Malediction”, was released worldwide via CDN Records in 2016, with additional singles “Once Upon the Cross” (Deicide cover), and “Myiasis” both in 2018. Since then, DEFORMATORY has been developing their 3rd full-length album entitled “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon” which they plan to unveil in the Fall of 2021 as an independent release.

(news) Finnish metal band Progeny of Sun released a new Dark Wanderer EP along with music video Eclipse!


Promo pic by Pasi Ketola & Joni Kiviniemi

Finnish extreme metal band Progeny Of Sun released their new EP Dark Wanderer via Inverse Records. To celebrate the release the band also released a music video for Eclipse track.

Watch Eclipse music video:   

The band comments:
“We think this is a huge improvement from the first EP. The sounds and texts have gotten increasingly dark and gained a pressuring twist. All in all, the material feels more unified this time around even though we have more people behind it. Vocals are bit more straightforward compared to the first EP, still with a lot of variance, but with more taste.

  This EP summarizes well the direction we want to take our music, and the next album will be killer.

 The video is also an absolute cracker especially considering it’s fully our own making. Joni did absolutely amazing job getting it done. We think the video also summarizes our energy and enthusiasm precisely. The video shoot was easy, we just played the song as we would with an audience. We had only one small setback when the person who was supposed to shoot the video got quarantined because of coronavirus. Fortunately, Joni was able to step up and with little additional help from our “manager” we handled the situation well.”

Promo pic by Jenna Kohtala

Finnish modern melodic death metal band Dimman is set to release their debut album ‘Songs and Tales of Grievance’ on July 30th 2021 via Inverse Records. The band’s modern melodeath combines beautiful melodies, heavy compositions and technical musicality into a unique ensemble. In addition to the diverse instrumentation, Dimman’s two vocalists create a distinctive and balanced soundscape.

The second single Obscenity from the album is released today and video can be seen here:

“Obscenity is the fastest song on the album, highlighting the work of the band’s new drummer, Arto Pieksämäki. The intensive and technical song culminates in an orchestral ending accompanied with some rapid riffing and haunting singing. Obscenity’s theme comprehends a leader whose morbid and violent decisions cause iniquities among the nation.” –Valtteri Halkola, vocals  The album addresses all the grievances and insecurities that cause misery to both individuals and communities. The incapability to be able to affect the injustices results in frustration, which can be heard from every song on the album.  Songs and Tales of Grievance’ is mixed and mastered by Santeri Peltomäki (Entropy Mixing) whose powerful production supports the band’s versatile compositions.

On Atlas´Shoulders released video for The Executioner!


“The protagonist has been sentenced to death by execution. Will he survive? The video was produced by AlphaAlias, with pyrotechnics and lights provided by NoiseToys. The song deals with the historical role of the medieval executioner, who was simultaneously celebrated and feared. He played a critical role in carrying out judicial sentences, primarily capital punishments, and was celebrated for doing so, as the latter were also seen as a main source of entertainment. At the same time, he was also avoided and feared in daily life, leading to a complex, split perception of the figure.”

You love it completely individual, contagiously fervent, thoroughly inspired as well as with the greatest possible devotion?
Then get prepared for 100 % genuine and overwhelming listenable EPIC HEAVY METAL of the highest order!

ON ATLAS’ SHOULDERS stands for uplifting, memorable melodies, an impressive vocal range and moving backing vocals combined with harmonized guitar riffs! Powerful solos and thundering double bass characterize the enormously beefy sound of these quickly convincing German hopefuls.

The outstanding gifted formation was founded in late 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany, by highly soulful vocalist Marius Bönisch and guitarist Ben Chadwick – completed by axeman Björn Anders and drummer Leonard Pick.
