Myrath - Shehili

Myrath the undisputed princes of the desert lands and all things eastern when it comes to metal, return once again with “Shehili”, the mad wind, filling their sails. Dismissed by a few as kebab metal (?!?), but embraced by way more as the harbingers of change in the rather stagnant modern metal scene, Myrath offer their unique mix of metal that sounds like an eclectic mix of Conception, Kamelot and Symphony X, with a more than generous dose of eastern musical elements, making the result quite unique, but familiar enough at the same time.
 

Majesty Of Revival to release new studio album “Timeless” on May 31st 2019

Wormholedeath is proud to announce that Ukrainian progressive metal combo Majesty Of Revival have signed a deal with the label for the worldwide release of their album “Timeless”.

“Timeless” will be released on May 31st, 2019, via Wormholedeath /Wormholedeath USA / The Orchard.

States the band:

Steel Prophet - The God Machine

Steel Prophet definitely deserves a medal for soldiering on. I mean they have been around since the 80s, but typically debuted as the decade turned and have been active ever since. For the best part of their career they’ve been fronted by the rather likable Rick Mythiasin, who’s only absent from 2004’s “Beware” album, where Nadir D’ Priest (London etc.) of all people provided vocals.

Carthagods - The Monster in Me

Carthagods hail from Tunisia and they debuted in 2015 with an album, which despite featuring a number of high profile guests, must have gone largely unheard. Four years later their sophomore effort, “The Monster in Me”, tries to introduce them to a larger crowd. In fact it goes as far as to rework two tracks from their debut that are here provided in more competent forms.
