Visigoth to release new 7-inch “Bells of Awakening” on May 24th 2019

2018 was the breakthrough year for American Heavy Metallers Visigoth, and 2019 is looking just as bright for the Salt Lake City powerforce!

On May 24th, 2019, Visigoth will release a 7" entitled “Bells of Awakening” with two brand new songs: “Fireseeker” and “Abysswalker”.

“Fireseeker” is now available on all digital outlets and can be heard below.

Amulet to release new studio album “The Inevitable War” on May 17th 2019

London metallers Amulet return with a new line-up and a monstrous sophomore album “The Inevitable War”, to be released on may 17th, 2019.

Founding guitarists Marek “Heathen” Steven and Nippy Blackford put together a killer new line-up who then spent several years crafting a genuine “statement of intent” return. The 9 track continues the bands song-and-riff-orientated no-bullshit sound but is enhanced by more impressive song structures and performances.

Holocaust - Elder Gods

Man, while I love the Scottish NWOBHM stalwarts Holocaust, who Metallica have famously covered on their “Garage Days” EP and who are returning after only three and a half years this time with a new album, instead of the decade long plus period of studio “draught” that seemed to affect the band for the latter part of the 00s, just by gazing at the artwork of their latest (ninth I think) album “Elder Gods”, I thought they’d gone completely bonkers and black metal at the same time!
