Germany's dark metal quintet AGATHODAIMON is currently working hard on the successor of their 2009 release "Phoenix".
They've entered the Kohlekeller Studios in February and hope to finish the recordings with producer Kristian "Kohle" Kohlmannslehner in late April.
The band's new album is entitled “In Darkness” and will be released this summer!
Here's what guitarist and vocalist Sathonys has to say about it:
Tristâme is a music project that was created by Rami in 2006. After three years they released their debut album under the title “Unraveling Horizons”. Rami, who is a Syrian born singer-songwriter, came up with the idea for this EP in November 2012, as he was working on some new music in South America.
After their long hiatus in the 00s, October Tide returned three years ago and have started working hard. This is the band’s second release since their comeback with “A Thin Shell” in 2010. Nowadays there’s also a former Katatonia member on the bass, Matthias Norrman, and a new singer, Alexander Högbom (Spasmodic, Volturyon).
German despondent rockers AUTUMNBLAZE have released a stop-motion music video for “Invisible Fields”, a new track taken off from the group’s upcoming full-length effort entitled “Every Sun Is Fragile”.
The music video for “Invisible Fields” was created by Philip L. Ward under Meph Production. Check it out below.
U.K. doomlord, My Dying Bride, has been imposing its legacy for over two decades, since the debut album "As the Flower Withers" surfaced in 1992. Now the morose troupe returns with its latest work, "The Manuscript", set for release on Peaceville Records on May 13, 2013 on CD and vinyl.
"The Manuscript" contains four new and exclusive songs; a dark voyage spanning over 27 minutes of supreme doom in the unmistakable My Dying Bride style of heaviness mixed with dark tales of foreboding. It was recorded and mixed at Futureworks Studios in Manchester, U.K. with the band's long-time producer, Mags.
