Wormwood release lyric video for first single “The Isolationist”

Today Wormwood invites you back 152 years in time. To this very day, on the first of June, 1867. To a year when the summer never came to Sweden. A devastating famine ravaged throughout the country. The scars from the starvation and the failed crops can be seen til these days out in the isolated provinces.
 
“The Isolationist” is song about solitude. About a man who refuses to leave his home deep in the forest. His old wife dies, yet there he remains and withers away into obscurity.
 

Finsterforst to release new studio album “Zerfall” on August 2nd 2019

Their fifth studio album, “Zerfall”, sees Black Forest Metal act Finsterforst return to the serious and elegiac soundscapes of classics such as the critically acclaimed “Mach Dich Frei” (2015). The Germans’ emotional brand of post black metal gives vent to endless rage with pounding riffs and astonishing orchestral elements – and then flows into somber choirs.

Eluveitie release music video for first single “Ategnatos”

We all wade through archetypes. We all are archetypes. Distant echoes of a life both primeval and noble. To embrace these archetypes, to accept them not only as a part of life but as life itself is what some may call enlightenment, some peace of mind.

Eluveitie call it “Ategnatos”. And by using their longest gap between two Metal albums to gather momentum, they just forged their strongest album around it.
 
“Ategnatos” will be release on April 5th, 2019, via Nuclear Blast.
