Vehement To Release Sophomore Album 'Ashes' 6th October At Mammothfest 2017



Vehement sophomore album 'Ashes'; Unveiled at Mammothfest 2017


Brighton based extreme metal quartet Vehement release their sophomore album 'Ashes' on October 6th via Infernum Records, the same day that Vehement will open Mammothfest, sharing the stage with black metal icons, Rotting Christ and Tsjuder.

Vehement have been climbing upwards through the ranks of the metal scene in the United Kingdom for several years now, and since the release of their debut album 'Collapse' in 2013, the band have gone on to play notable events such as Bloodstock Open Air and Incineration Fest. Recently announced as the second signing to Infernum Records (home to fellow Brightonians King Leviathan) they are poised to unleash their second full-length offering upon the world.

Guitarist Xysor explains: " ...as soon as ‘Collapse' was released we were straight into the writing process for ‘Ashes'. We began recording over a year ago, but after parting ways with bassist Nybras (on good terms I might add), I was doubtful we'd find anyone to fit the mould. Once we did however, in Ohtar, things got back on form and a new dynamic was discovered."

In 2016, after much deliberation, having declined previous years, Vehement took part in Metal 2 the Masses in Brighton and ended up at Bloodstock. After the Bloodstock performance, the band really hit the ground running and lots more gig offers came in. Vehement have been looking forward to playing Warhorns festival on September 22nd, as well as Mammothfest on October 6th, at which will be the official releasing of ‘Ashes' through Infernum Records. In the meantime, we're already working on the next one..."

With a new sense of direction and sound this album challenges the barriers of ‘extreme metal’ and forces elements together. After the collapse, only ashes remain...

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

REVIEW: Vrona - Impermanence (Prog Metal)

Prog metallers, Vrona released their debut EP 'A Lapse In Time' last year which received positive press and even led to them being compared to the likes of heavyweights Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool, minus the vocals, as in 2016 they were an instrumental act. Now in 2017, they are back, not only with a new two-track release titled 'Impermanence' but they have also unveiled and added an extra dimension to their already massive sound with the introduction of a vocalist Jamie Ball.

The main title track 'Impermanence' is ambient and textured. The vocals are pleasant, captivating and varied which immediately gives them a different feel and layer, proving that adding vocalist Jamie was a wise move. It features soaring and powerful moments throughout. The fact that they now have vocals doesn't overpower the well crafted and intelligible instruments either but only acts as the perfect unison, with both complimenting each other wonderfully. They are all impressive mu…
