King Leviathan To Unleash Debut Album 'Paean Heretica', On 5th August



King Leviathan, hailing from Brighton UK have gathered quite the following since releasing their critically acclaimed 2015 E.P 'The Shrine', spreading their "Black Mass" to Bloodstock Open Air and several iterations of Mammothfest as well as touring the UK with the likes of Wretched Soul, Abhorrent Decimation and Meta-Stasis.

The south coast act have become known for their combination of extreme thrash and groove metal vibes with hints of black metal, providing whirlwinds of guitar shreds. On top of that Adam Sedgwick‘s vocal capability has vastly improved since 'The Shrine', he makes switching from a power singing voice to furiously aggressive shouts seem effortless.

Now, the blackened thrash four-piece have just announced details for their eagerly awaited debut album, 'Paean Heretica', which has been two years in the making. It is King Leviathan's darkest and heaviest work to date, encompassing themes of loss, abandonment, blind faith and what comes after death.

The album is a nine track, 45 minute collection of 'psalms' which were recorded and mixed by Paul ‘Win’ Winstanley at Brighton Electric Studios, mastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Revocation, Motorhead, Baroness) and with art by Alex Norman (Guns 'n' Roses, Opeth, Katatonia, Sylosis).




Tracklist for 'Paean Heretica':
I. Primitive Baptism
II. Sanctification
III. Kingdom
IV. Agony
V. Doomsayer
VI. Coffin Swallower
VII. Harrowing Eyes
VIII. Like Wolves To The Throat Of The Lion
IX. The Grand Congregation

‘Paean Heretica’ will be the first release via new independent label Infernum Records and will be physically available on August 5th, 2017.

Rock Duo SONS Release Video Single 'Marco' Raising Awareness Of Mental Health & Gun Control

Brighton punk rockers are back and hitting hard once again with their new video single 'Marco'. They have released a powerful video to accompany the song which was directed by Graham Cullis.

Check out the video for 'Marco' below:




The band states that: "The Message in this video is primarily to promote mental health illness awareness and how we need to cure the mind to help prevent tragedy that often occurs due to ignorance of others dismissing the people that need help." 

Although ‘Marco’ was inspired by shootings in the USA such as the Stoneman Douglas High School incident and the YouTube attack in this video shows that gun control is something that needs to be addressed globally. As well as some cases in the US the video also shows footage of the Nairobi mall massacre in Kenya and the aftermath of the Dunblane Primary School in Scotland. SONS are fully behind any campaign aimed at tightening gun laws and making people more responsible with their firearms so th…

DESERT STORM Announce New Album 'Sentinels'

DESERT STORM ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'SENTINELS'
TO BE RELEASED MARCH 16TH ON APF RECORDS!
2018 marks the return of Oxford-based sludge-metal titans Desert Storm as they prepare to follow the release of 2014’s critically-acclaimed ‘Omniscient’ album with their new opus ‘Sentinels’, confirmed for release this coming March 16th via APF Records.


Recorded with engineer Jamie Dodd (Orange Goblin) at Flesh & Bone Studio's, Hackney and tracked by Steve 'Geezer' Watkins at Woodworm studios (which has also been used by legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi), ‘Sentinels’ is a colossal sounding record, it’s ten tracks punching the listener with an oppressive towering monolithic sound that batters, but never dulls the senses.


“This album is a natural progression from our previous releases,” explains guitarist Ryan Cole. “It has the Desert Storm sound, but has moved in a much harder, darker and heavier direction.”



Today we get to hear the first rumblings from ‘Sentinels’ in …
