Sweden's CHILDREN OF THE SÜN returns with acoustic single "In Silva" - New album out in March!

Blending the timeless, classic rock sound of the Woodstock-era with modern indie, Sweden’s Children of the Sün is back. Following up on their praised debut album "Flowers" from 2019, the group will release their sophomore studio full length "Roots" in March 2022. The second single leading up to "Roots" is called "In Silva", and is an acoustic piece with soulful, vocal harmonies. The single features guest vocals by Simon Zion from the band Awaze. 



Josefina Berglund Ekholm, lead singer of the band, comments on the single "In Silva":

"In Silva is about longing for something or someone. Waiting for something to happen, and believing that everything will work out in the end. It is about accepting what you cant control; that everything will turn out okay as long as you just let it happen." 



"In Silva" is out on all streaming platforms January 21. Children of the Sün’s sophomore album "Roots" will be released on The Sign Records on the 18th of March, 2022, on CD, LP, and digital formats.

After the release of the first promo in 2011, the first album in 2013 and the second one in 2016, SEPTEM decided to shut themselves in the studio to collaborate on their third album called PSEUDONICA.

With the release of this album, SEPTEM will tour Italy and some countries in Europe. This album was recorded at Italian top Nadir Music Studios in Genoa with the expert supervision of Tommy Talamanca (Sadist) as the producer.

MDD Records reissues Desultory's two first full-lenghts


Desultory were part of the first wave of Swedish Deah Metal next to Entombed and Dismember. Their debut "Into Eternity" originally released in 1993 is still a standard in the Death Metal scene and must-have for every collection of pure Swedish-styled Death Metal. Also, the follow-up "Bitterness" is in the same vein. As the band got no breakthrough they changed their style more modern and drifted into nothing. Still back in mind for all real Death Metal maniacs and a need for a re-release are the first two records which you should put in your collection between "Left Hand Path" and "Like An Everflowing Stream".

Spain's NEGATIVA set release date for new MYSTÍSKAOS album, reveal first track - features members of DÉLIRANT, HÄSSLIG

 Today, Mystískaos announces January 28th as the international release date for the highly anticipated third album of Spain's Negativa04, on vinyl LP format. Distribution is handled by Dissociative Visions, while the CD version will be released by Nebular Carcoma.


04 is the third full-length from Negativa, the longest running project by D.B. (Délirant, Hässlig) of Spain, who also runs the Bile Noire label. With a runtime just north of 40 minutes, 04 proves itself a masterclass in bleak, oppressive black metal. The level of refinement on the recording only further accentuates the validity of the expressed emotions: every point-of-view that seeks to allay the malignance-of-being is naive, inferior, and ultimately noxious to the existent as a whole. Eradicate your fallacies or suffer for eternity.

In the meantime, hear the brand-new track "XXV" HERE at Negativa's Bandcamp. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:

7 Rainbows In Exile - "Twilight Gymnastics"


Listen "Twilight Gymnastics"

Artist: 7 Rainbows In Exile
Release title: Twilight Gymnastics
Label: Wave Records
Release Date: 12-11-2021
Format: CD, Digital
Genre: Post-Punk / Gothic
Country: Serbia

For fans of Fields of the Nephilim and Red Lorry Yellow Lorry
Dancing Shade comments: 
«Isolation is tempting and isolation unveils. Self-exposed, I revisited my post-punk demons and laid the foundation of what will be known as 7 Rainbows in Exile. In a spiritual condition reaching nearly skeptic I came out with a material rooted in the 80's darkwave sense.
"Twilight Gymnastics" is a concept album composed primarily of my conversations with an entity called "Double-horned". It is a character spiritually marked with two pairs of horns, the first pointed against the outside world while the second one goes to its inner reality.
Through various states and situations we face each other in themes of hope, infatuation, masochism, passion, sex, denial, breakdown, lunacy, aesthetics, loneliness and phantasm, each seeking its own meaning in the present contemporary age.
Most of the album was recorded in the first half of 2020 during the spring lock-down and the strict curfew introduced in Serbia months before the rest of Europe, so it comes natural that these circumstances had a significant impact on the album's overall sound.
I like how humanly imperfect this album resonates, at moments fragile and mild then suddenly seductive and dark, in places spacious, luminous and wide then unbalancedly raw, frantic and mad with each of these inconsistencies, making it a very spontaneous and honest record, an actual document of hard and challenging times.»
Recorded, mixed & mastered by Vladimir Uzelac @ Wormhole Studios, March 2020 - May 2021.

(In Japan Release date 31 March)

Born from the mind of the Italian guitarist Frank Caruso , known for his numerous projects such as Firehouse , Arachnes and Vivaldi Metal Project above all, superband Thunder Rising is back on the record market with a brand-new album called “Back to the time of Rock”, the Band’s latest studio effort.

Twelve extraordinary tracks, a real time travel towards the re-discovery of sounds from the past but in a modern key, capable of striking and fascinating any listener. In addition, we’d like to point out a Bonus Track which will only be featured on the cd version and not in the Digital stores: “Stairs to the top”. The Band is currently shooting the Videoclip of the first single “FATE TRAIN” to be released in the forthcoming weeks.

DeVicious - Black Heart (Pride & Joy Music 14 April 2022)

 After the surprising success of their previous long player “Phase Three” DeVicious is back with their highly anticipated 4th Studio album “Black Heart”!eartHeart Having previously produced three albums in only three years, the international outfit based in Germany decided to use the pandemic enforced break wisely to take their time for the song writing and production and eventually ended up 137 days producing their most melodic, heaviest, most angry yet freshest and most unique album to date.
 Being in Lockdown for 1,5 years and being forced to see the events going down around the world had a big impact on the lyrics and the music. DeVicious went back to the studio with one cardinal rule: don’t copy yourself and no stylistic influence is off the table as long as it is fun to play and the melody is big enough.
 Band leader & producer Alex Frey wanted to create a different atmosphere as on the previous albums. DeVicious have always defined themselves through big arena type melodies, which often comes with limitations of style and a particular lack of freedom. Black Heart” contains influences from traditional Hard Rock, Metal, Melodic Metal, Progressive Rock and even EDM sounds found their way into the production.
 DeVicious will also release their own comic book series “Dollhouse DV” in 2022. The main characters of the comics are the models on the covers for the “Black Heart” album and its singles. The comics and artwork were created in entirety by the band. Three of the 12 songs are part of the official Soundtrack for the comic books…
“Black Heart” was produced by Alex Frey at Tower 13 Studios, Karlsruhe, mixed by Patrick Damiani at Tidalwave Studios Karlsdorf and mastered by Robin Schmidt at 24-96 Mastering Karlsruhe. Additional backing vocals by Michael Bormann (Michael Bormann’s Jaded Hard) and Baol Bardot Bulsara (TNT).

DeVicious will head on a double headliner tour with Night Laser in April 2022.

DeVcious is: Antonio Calanna (vocals), Alex Frey (bass), Radivoj Petrovic (guitars), Lars Nippa (drums), Denis Kunz (keyboards)


"When your best friend becomes your worst enemy" - Midnight Bullet released a new groovy single!

Promo picture: Kristian Pekkala
Finnish heavy metal band Midnight Bullet is set to release their fourth studio album Hostile Resistance on March 4th 2022 via Inverse Records. Enemy Number One is another single from the album and video can be seen here: 

Enemy Number One is a song which shows new and unsuspected side of the band. Though some skatepunk and pop elements have been dropped for this album in favor of more aggressive sound, the band has still been able to bring new flavours to the table.

Tuomas Lahti, vocals & rhythm guitar: “Album release is getting closer and obviously we’re very excited about it! Enemy Number One was pretty challenging lyricwise but turned out one of the best songs in the album. This song is very groovy but also very heavy at the same time. It’s really rewarding to write music with this band because you never really know where you end up in the end. This song is about when your best friend becomes your worst enemy.”
