Warforged announce full length I: Voice via The Artisan Era on May 10th

Warforged announce new album I: Voice coming May 10 on The Artisan Era


The promo states:
Every so often, a band comes along that generates praise and attention for all the right reasons, and, not always due to having a label or marketing power behind them. Chicago, Illinois-based progressive death metal group Warforged achieved that with their completely independently released 2014 EP, Essence of the Land. An effort rightly lauded far and wide not just by the underground, but also by larger outlets such as Metal Injection, Metal Sucks, Heavy Blog Is Heavy, No Clean Singing, and just as widely praised by death metal fans as well. The group generated massive buzz purely off the strength of their innovative music then, and are finally ready to return with a follow up worthy of building upon the strong foundation Warforged established previously on that release and on their standalone near eight-minute 2015 single, "Two Demons".



Several years in the making, Warforged is proud to officially announce the upcoming May 10th release of their new full-length album, I: Voice through The Artisan Era. If Essence of the Land was the metal scene's entrance into the group's boundary-shaking brand of progressive death metal enhanced by black metal, then I: Voice is its worthy successor that sees the group diving deeper into expansive terrain both harsh and light driven by theatrical flair and packed with densely packed compositions drawing from worlds old and new in order to create their own style of death metal that seems to inhabit its own world in and of itself.



 The cover art for I: Voice was handled by renowned artist Samuel Nelson (Stigma Art) who previously worked with the band to create the artwork for their prior 2014 release and is well-known for his album art crafted for groups such as First Fragment, Virvum, Un, and many more. The release is supported by numerous high-profile guest spots from seasoned metal musicians including Gorguts guitarist Kevin Hufnagel, ex-Exivious/ex-Cynic guitarist Tymon Kruidenier, Alkaloid guitarist Christian Münzner, Artificial Brain vocalist Will Smith along with his bandmate and Revocation guitarist Dan Gargiulo, Narcotic Wasteland/ex-Nile guitarist Dallas Toller-Wade, Native Construct/Replacire guitarist Poh Hock, Entheos drummer Navene Koperweis on a guest guitar spot, and many more.

It's no coincidence so many of the extreme metal worlds best players were on board to contribute something to I: Voice, as it speaks directly to the quality of the release and the bands unique sound. I: Voice will strongly appeal to fans of Opeth, Portal, and Lantlos as primarily cited by the band.

Stay tuned for the first single to air next week and additional content to continue to be unveiled leading up to the release. For now, the band has crafted a unique guitar medley playthrough driven album teaser video for I: Voice which can be viewed through the following link below.

Warforged comments on the upcoming release of I: Voice
I: Voice” is the sum of 5 years of creativity and focused work. The music plays as a stream of consciousness - jumping often from one area of the metal spectrum to the next with recurring melodies and vibes throughout for the purpose of bringing about an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Since Essence Of The Land & "Two Demons" came out, we worked to build upon and elaborate on our musical style and mission statement. From what started as an idea of modern death metal with hints at black metal evolved into a more progressive, unique, and “epic” ethos. Horrifying & beautiful, dynamic & aggressive, harmony found through dissonance, an ebb and flow through drama and resolution, a flirtation with memory, a call for collaboration, personality, and reality  - immense emotional energy seamlessly woven within the death metal genre.

Rochester (NY) - U.S. progressive Death Metal squad CONTRARIAN have partnered with Heavy Blog is Heavy for the lyric video premiere of "Whomsoever Worships the Whiteworm," a song from forthcoming album Their Worm Never Dies.


Listen to it at Heavyblogisheavy

Pre-order via Willowtip  

Pre-order via Bandcamp   

A new school of old school death metal. Creating death metal that is authentically new while have a natural memory and understanding of the old. Rooted in early 90's progressive death metal, but with an unrelenting forward thinking approach, CONTRARIAN return with their third full-length release Their Worm Never Dies.

Spearheaded by guitar player Jim Tasikas, alongside George Kollias (Nile) simultaneously handling drum and vocal duties, CONTRARIAN is not a super group, but a unit of like-minded musicians that coincidentally converged on a vision of what a modern death metal band should sound like. 

Organic sounding, yet aggressive and melodically complex, Their Worm Never Dies is packed with snake-like Schuldinerian-style riffage and atmospheric variations that will provide a wholly enticing listen to all those willing to take in its eccentricity. 

The band previously released videos for "Exorcism" (video) and "My Curse" (Video).

"Contrarian should please both old-school heads and modern death metal fiends equally."
 - Metal Injection

"Progressive tech-death that bridges the divide between Death, Cynic, and new school manifestations Obscura and Beyond Creation."
 - Decibel

 - Heavy Blog is Heavy

"Listeners who appreciated Death's progressive era, and would prefer a little Cynic influence thrown in as well, should pick this one up."
 - Metal Reviews

"This is progressive death metal at its finest."
 - The Metal Channel

"If you have any sort of interest in old school prog death, Their Worm Never Dies needs to be on your radar. It captures the essence of the era and presents it in a modern light, and it represents a big step forward for Contrarian."
 - Toilet ov Hell

"An early candidate for best death metal record of 2019."
 - Glacially Musical

"Contrarian is one of those few bands that can claim to take over the torch of Schuldiner and therefore Death."
 - Chronicles in the Abyss

"An album that deserves to be listened to repeatedly and at high volume."
- Musipedia of Metal

 "This one is everything the hype has made it out to be. This is a good one, readers."
 - Twenty Red Metal Nails

"A gallery of great solos, a mixture of fluid styles and compositional quality."
- El Comenta Mierda

 "If Schuldiner were still around, there's no question the sound Contrarian currently concoct is the route Death would've taken."
 - Technical Music Review

"I encourage you to reach for Their Worm Never Dies, for all those who love what Death, Pestilence, Cynic and other similar bands do."
 - Death Magnetic

Exclusive interview with the band Negative Wall

Greetings readers, please give a warm welcome to the band Negative Wall from Atlanta Georgia;

Tommy Stewart (bass, vox) Dennis Reid (drums, vox) Don Cole (guitar, vox)  

1- Hello and welcome to Metal Music Midwest, first off, thanks for taking the time to do the interview, could you give our readers a brief description of the group? Where is the band from?

(Tommy Stewart)- Negative Wall is from Atlanta, Georgia, USA! We're a three piece metal band writing science fiction stories and applying them to a blues style within a doom metal frame. For instance, the song entitle Imperii Exsules was inspired by a sixties Outer Limits TV show episode called The Zanti Misfits.

2- Gammagelu is the band's first full album, how long did it take to write?

TS - This is an interesting question. From first practice to a finished master took fourteen days. We came to the first rehearsal and jammed out the songs to write the music. That took seven days. Then we went into my studio and recorded the instrument tracks. I had some partially written ideas about the lyrics, but mainly sat down and recorded myself alone doing the vocals and completed the lyrics simultaneously. The mastering happened overnight and there it is. 14 days from band's first rehearsal to completion of album.


3- What musical influence inspires the bands compositions?

TS - All three of us are very different in many ways, but have a lot in common too. I think this was a case of us bringing different influences that were almost similar to the table. Don Cole, guitarist, brought in some very bluesy guitar style that is highly featured throughout the mix because he is so amazing. Dennis Reid is not the most complex drummer, but he sure can pound them hard and he tends to play exactly what I would have asked him to play. I'm a huge doom fan, but I probably encouraged a bit of a Pink Floyd feel to show up.

4- The group started in 2018, can you tells us how did you meet?

TS - We've all known each other for years and played together in various situations. Dennis and I have also played in Bludy Gyres and Tommy Stewart's Dyerwulf together. I came from Hallows Eve and the other two knew me from listening to that band originally.



5- The new album title is Gammagelu, can you give us details about the content and more in depth meaning to this title?

TS - It is rough Latin meaning the ice or frost of gamma. Like some of my lyrics, it's part of invented language that gets the feel or image across by it's sound, not so much it's precise meaning.

6- Each member of this project is part of another band, how do you maintain a good balance working together?

TS - First, we do enjoy each other's company so we work well together. Also we handle our music careers seriously and  know we have to get it done because we're all busy. Scheduling and be serious about respecting each other's time is very important and we do that well.

7- Have you performed any shows in your area? if so, how receptive and supportive are the people to your music?

TS - We've only performed one show and it was a blast! We had our black and white lab scene backdrop behind us, all white lights only, dirty lab coats, and make up to make us look like we're in black and white TV. So we look like we are in 'black and white'! I gathered cell phone footage of it and made a video of it. You can find it on youtube and here is the link:

                                                      
8- Are there any upcoming shows or tours you can tell us about?

TS - We're planning on some shows during Fall 2019 in the USA.

9- Thanks for your participation, finally, what is the best way to get a hold of the band, in case someone wants to book or promote the band? Any final words?

TS - Thank you for the interview, I appreciate being able to explain some things! You can contact Negative Wall at tstew667@gmail.com or hear and contact at negativewall-bandcamp. Another good source is blackdoombarecords

METALITALIA Festival 2019 first bands announcement

The Metalitalia.com Festival team – Metalitalia.com, Vertigo and Eagle Booking Live Promotion – is very proud to reveal the dates and the first confirmed acts of the 2019 edition of the festival, which will take place once again at the Live Music Club in Trezzo sull’Adda (Milan), Italy.



This time the event will take place over two days in spring: on Saturday 1st June and Sunday 2nd June.

We're still working on various other things behind the scenes which we'll bring to you in due course, including the side programme and of course the full line-up and day schedules. In the meantime, we're extremely happy to be adding some cool bands to the festival with this announcement.

DAY 1 – Saturday, 1st June

The headlining act of the first day of the festival will be Sweden's ARCH ENEMY! The Michael Amott led band, recently brought to the apex of his success by the charismatic singer Alissa White-Gluz is without a doubt one of the leaders of the modern thrash-death metal scene. ARCH ENEMY will be joined by Italian symohonic death metal masters FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, who are about to release a new and highly anticipated album. The band will perform with an impressive production in an exclusive show on Italian soil.
Never the most prolific of bands, nor the most well-known, nevertheless DARKANE have offered some of the most intelligent thrash-death metal throughout the years. For the occasion, the Swedish band will play their masterpiece "Rusted Angel" in its entirety!

DAY 2 – Sunday, 2nd June

The second day of the event will be fully dedicated to hard rock and classic metal. The bill will be topped by Swiss hard rockers GOTTHARD: the band boasts a big following in Italy and they will come down to Milan for a very special show. Co-headliners of this second day will be Sweden's HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, who are absolute masters at mixing sleaze, glam, metal and catchy choruses.
Finally, we are pround to announce another piece of metal and rock history: Phil Campbell, the legendary guitarist of MOTÖRHEAD, who shared the stage with Lemmy for 32 years, will join us for an an explosive show based on recent cuts from his new album under the PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS banner and many MOTÖRHEAD hits!

Once again, please stay tuned for more details and news!

Embrace The Moon With SAEVA’s Atmospheric Video "Sanguine Rite"

Denver’s Saeva has released a punishing and chaotic new single, ‘Sanguine Rite’ and it is almost 7 minutes of tragic fury embracing blood sacrifice and moon worship. The Colorado band has been flirting with influences from a few genres since their birth under the cold moon of 2018 but remains heavily focused on black metal with sustained progressive riffs.



‘Sanguine Rite’ comes from the yet to be titled debut EP from Saeva, that is intended to be released later this year and according to them, it is a solid introduction to what Saeva is.

“Sanguine Rite is the third song I wrote for this project and the first lyrics I wrote for the album. I wanted the song to be brooding and heavy but gradually move. The song needed to tell a story more than the lyrics. The music ebbs and flows and the melody reprised from the intro grounds you, reminds you where you are. The lyrics are about blood sacrifice and moon worship, in Saeva we move with the moon and we respect her gravity.” - N. Mercury

This single is melodic, aggressive, and tormented; all the things Saeva wishes to portray itself as sonically.

‘Sanguine Rite’ is available on Bandcamp and along with the video on YouTube.

Iron Fire reveal brand new lyric video for the song Beyond The Void

Iron Fire have just revealed the title track "Beyond The Void" which is part of their new album coming out thru Crime Records on March 8th. Listen to it in the link below!


Copenhagen (DK) - Danish power metal veterans IRON FIRE have released a lyric video for the title track from forthcoming album Beyond The Void.



Purchase/Stream "Beyond The Void"
New album here

IRON FIRE will release Beyond The Void March 8 on Crime Records. Pre-order the album at shop.crimerecords

How do you top great power metal albums like Voyage of the Damned and Among the Dead? Well, the answer from IRON FIRE is to keep the focus on songwriting straight, keep the approach real and speak straight from the beating metal heart. Beyond the Void is, therefore, nothing but an honest in your face metal album, filled with blistering power metal songs that meld traditional melodic heavy metal with hard-hitting power trash. This melting pot of heavy metal madness is mixed and mastered by legendary producer Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Dark Tranquillity, Madball etc.).

Beyond The Void is an album spanning a musical range from Testament to Judas Priest to Helloween and beyond. Fans of good heavy metal songwriting should give this new creation a spin.

Darkwater just released a brand new lyric video for their song A New Beginning

Darkwater revealed a new lyric video for the track "A New Beginning" which is a song from their new album "Human" soon to be released via Ulterium Records March 1st. Read more details below.

The promo states:
The Swedish melodic progressive metal band DARKWATER just released a lyric video for "A New Beginning", the second single from their new album "Human".

Link to the lyric video: This location

"Human" will be released on March 1st via Ulterium Records. The album will be available on CD, 2LP and digital.

Visit the band here

"Human" won't leave fans of melodic metal or progressive metal disappointed. The songs are heavier, more melodic and atmospheric than before and the band worked really hard on tweaking the ten songs and over 76 minutes of playing time into perfection. Jacob Hansen (Evergrey, Volbeat, Amaranthe) was chosen to mix and master the album and he did a fantastic job which resulted in the best sounding Darkwater album to date.

The lyrics of the album welcomes you into a world of you and me, how we affect the world around us and the struggles we deal with as humans.

Don't miss out on "Human", a perfect album for fans of melodic progressive metal and bands like Circus Maximus, Seventh Wonder and Evergrey!

The graphic artwork of Mike Mora (Heavy Metal Magazine) and Javier Pastor (Evil Rite) on Blind Justice (complete with 16-page booklet in comic book style) is the perfect match for this music, resulting in a holistic listening experience.

“Let me make something clear before we even start: this is simply a new sensation on matters of old-school, traditional heavy metal.”
-Lords of Metal

"Frenzy's Blind Justice offers a solid, nearly flawless, platter of entertaining traditional heavy metal with plenty groove and loaded with frenetic guitar work. Easily recommended." [5/5]
- Dangerdog Music Reviews

"A great mix of traditional music and comic book/graphic novel subject matter - ideal for fans of Racer X, Judas Priest, and Accept among others." [8.5/10]
- Dead Rhetoric

"Well composed and well played heavy rock, where inspiration and energy are not lacking." [4/5]
- All Around Metal

"FRENZY pay homage to good old heavy metal and the world of Marvel comics. And it's a lot of fun listening. Eleven tracks in the intersection of LIZZY BORDEN, HEAVY LOAD and currently NIGHT DEMON, seasoned with a pinch of JUDAS PRIEST."
- Streetclip

"Frenetic energy and pounding melody!"
- The Median Man

A Novelist is streaming their upcoming release on Invisible Oranges

A Novelist is about to release their brand new album Folie on February 8th. The band is currently streaming the album in its entirety thru Invisible Oranges. It is a pleasure to listen to the vast amount of melodies and complex arrangements being expressed here. More details below.


The promo states:
Louisiana-based progressive death metal project A Novelist is finally on the cusp of releasing their sophomore full-length, Folie, this Friday, February 8th. The band once again enlisted the talents of renowned sound engineer Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, Wretched, etc.) to ensure the best possible production for their new album.

 A Novelist is the creative partnership of drummer Alex Babineaux and vocalist, guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist Ben Nugent. Started in 2009 between friends in Lafayette, Louisiana, they began with the simple goal of writing and playing death metal. Over time their goals as a band grew larger, driven by a bold desire to expand the idea of what death metal can be through free and uncompromised expression. Listen now at this LOCATION

Invisible Oranges comments on today's album stream of A Novelist - Folie
"Project co-conspirators Ben Nugent (vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards) and Alex Babineaux (drums) have matured significantly since A Novelist’s debut album Portraits: from its unbridled musicianship to its effortless synchrony, Folie feels emergent rather than constructed (more free-form dance than dress rehearsal). Across its 12 tracks, the album pirouettes from melodic bursts of speed and energy (further amplified by Nugent’s dazzling clean vocals) to moody, ambient moments of reflection — and even though transitions are aplenty and often abrupt, no musical idea feels underexplored or underutilized."
