Hardcore Quintet HYPOPHORA Release New Single ‘Headlines’

South West post-hardcore quartet HYPOPHORA are pleased to reveal their brand new single ‘Headlines’ that is released this week via Easy Action/Zen Ten Records. Creating hard-hitting, catchy and anthemic material, HYPOPHORA bring intricate guitar music back to the mainstream. ‘Headlines’ is a much darker sound, both musically and lyrically, than the band’s previous material, featuring one of the jazziest yet chilled out middle eights they’ve ever written.

You can watch the music video for the single ‘Headlines’ below:

In the past twelve months the band have supported the likes of He Is Legend, Kurt Travis (ex Dance Gavin Dance and Allusondrugs at various locations in the UK. In the summer they played slots at UK Tech Metal Fest and Boardmasters Festival and this winter they hit the road again on a headline run to promote their new material.

MOONSPELL Stream New Album '1755' In Full!

1755 marks the year of the horror when a giant earthquake destroyed the city of Lisbon. Almost 100.000 souls lost their life's, and this tragic event still belongs to one of the disastrous catastrophes in European history and nature. 2017 and in remembrance of the victims and the band's hometown, will mark the year of MOONSPELL's new album titled '1755', the 13rd studio record by the Portuguese Dark Metal pioneers, which will see the light of day on November 3rd with Napalm Records.

From the first second, the conceptual dramaturgy of MOONSPELL's new album feels like a detonation of the mind. Playful and mean-spirited. '1755' is their magnum opus, a musical masterpiece and the dark adventure into medieval times. Produced by Tue Madsen ( (Meshuggah, The Haunted, Dark Tranquility, Dir En Grey, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter ), naturally, this album is sung completely in Portuguese and will outclass all standards you have ever heard from MOONSPELL before!

FORGOTTEN TOMB Stream New Album 'We Owe You Nothing'

Ahead of European release, Italian masters of black/doom metal, FORGOTTEN TOMB, are streaming their entire new album "We Owe You Nothing", which was released on October 27th in Europe and is out November 10th in North America. Listen to the album on YouTube, below:

https://youtu.be/cIdWGuIdt7Q




"We Owe You Nothing" marks the highest point in the band's constant evolution and once more makes it hard to narrow down its sound to some pre-existing labels. Effortlessly blending the eerie, dissonant black metal sound the band is well-known for with muscular sludge/doom riffs and a subtle, nihilistic punk attitude, "We Owe You Nothing" defines the band's personality more than ever, reaffirming its unique sound.

Starting in the beginning of the millennium with bona fide classics such as "Songs to Leave" (2002), "Springtime Depression" (2003) and "Love's Burial Ground"(2004) - widely considered among the true originators of …

CYHRA Debut Album 'Letters To Myself' Out Now

Cyhra, a new band featuring Jake E., Jesper Strömblad, Peter Iwers, Alex Landenburg and Euge Valovirta have released their critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Letters To Myself’.

The album features plenty of the magic that each member of the band has become known for over the years. From the catchy twin-guitar attack of Jesper Strömblad &

Euge Valovirta, the soaring, soulful splendour of Jake E.’s unmistakable voice to the pummelling, groove-driven precision of Peter Iwers’ and Alex Landenburg’s rhythmic bedrock, every last moment crackles with the excitement of fresh territory, new challenges, and a brand new identity for all involved to embrace.

The album was recorded & produced at various studios around the world, but mainly in Top Floor Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden by Jakob Herrmann (Amaranthe, Anthrax, etc.) and at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark by Jacob Hansen(Amaranthe, Volbeat, etc.), who also mixed & mastered the album.

Courtesans Release 'Feel The Same' Video & Announce More UK Headline Shows

London doom pop group, the Courtesans, have released a new video ahead of Wednesday 13 shows and announced more dates for their UK headline tour.

'Feel The Same' is the second music video to be taken from their current release, following 'Mesmerise', and lands ahead of UK dates in support of Wednesday 13 this October, and a UK headline tour this November and December.

The Courtesans say, “Feel The Same is a tale of deception, desperation and resignation. It’s about a hollow belief in other people’s honour, honesty and good intentions when dealing with your emotions.

“Holding on to what you thought you were told was true but being confronted with the chilling reality of having been lied to and then left alone to battle the pain of understanding the lies you were spun, questioning everything you thought was real.”

REVIEW: Haema - Insurrection EP (Groove Metal, UK)

Experimental industrial groove metal act Haema from Northamptonshire UK formed in 2016 and now they are set to release their debut EP via Sliptrick Records on the 31st October 2017.

First track ‘Eden’ is a scene setter and has a futuristic space feel with a sombre tone, before it all kicks off and is a great introduction to the band’s abrasive electronic groove sound, as it is hard hitting and leaves you wanting more…

‘Free Man’ aptly feels very free spirited in attitude but with a dark atmosphere and is heavier than the opener and a good one to let loose to. They manage to incorporate many influences and sounds into this and the end result is a very strong melodic unique track.

The title track ‘Insurrection’ kicks off in an alarming and dysfunctional fashion and goes on to feature electronic synth groove laden melodies and a striking chorus. This is very rebellious as you would expect from the title and the lyrics featured, such as “they tell us which way to walk, this life is a crime..…

INTERVIEW: Crejuvent (Extreme Metal)

Earlier this year on July 1st Crejuvent, which is a one-man project created by the multi-skilled Federico ‘Freddy’ Speraunleashed his anticipated debut 'Time EP' which was all performed and produced by himself. Find out all about the new EP, what inspires him, what lies ahead in the future and more below...

What made you decide to start your own solo project and how long have you been creating music?

At first, it was the fact that I wanted to release my own music but couldn’t find a drummer here in Liverpool that was capable and willing to devote the time needed for the project. Eventually, I realised that I really want the creative and artistic freedom to do whatever the fuck I wanted with a project and getting a band together had the potential to compromise that. If people want to play for Crejuvent and are totally committed to my selfish vision then that’s great, but I’m not gonna force someone to do it. I might get some session players here or there in the future, but so far…

STEVE ‘n’ SEAGULLS Return With ‘Antisocial’

New Single 'Antisocial' Out Via Spinefarm Records Now!


Finland’s finest farmers are back with two hillbilly-fied versions of Gallic legends Trust’s classic track (also made famous by Anthrax), ‘Antisocial’. Going bilingual, the boys are shaking the foundations by releasing the track in both French and English. Hootenanny headbanging is officially a global craze and is spreading like wildfire!



“Hello hello! We've been touring quite a lot in France, and it's been great by the way. We were told about this amazing punk rock song by Trust, and since Pukki is a multi-lingual renaissance man it felt good to make the song in both French and English. The arrangement came together when we added accordion, cowbell, doubled the bass drum and threw in some string instruments. For us, this song is very to-the-point, and it feels good to do something different for a change!Oui monsieur! See you on tour!” - Steve ‘n’ Seagulls
