Them to release new studio album “Manor of the Se7en Gables” on October 26th 2018

With an impressive concept that combines the most significant components of US power and thrash metal and songs that focus on lyrics about spooks and horror, Them are one of the most unusual new metal acts.

Their debut album “Sweet Hollow” (2016) already more than hinted at the artistic potential of the six-piece. Their successor release “Manor of the Se7en Gables” sees the group surrounding frontman KK Fossor present an album that takes up thematically where its predecessor left off but goes on to explore the stylistic extremes of this musical genre even further.

Prezir to release debut full-length album “As Rats Devour Lions” on September 17th 2018

Milwaukee black metal group Prezir are releasing their first full-length album, “As Rats Devour Lions”, on September 17th, 2018, via Godz ov War Productions.

The follow up to 2017 debut EP “Contempt”, “As Rats Devour Lions” delivers a scornful blow to the wasteland of safe metal modernity.

A contemptuous rebuke of all extremist ideologies, both present and historical, Prezir epitomizes black metal ferocity (Destroyer 666, Dawn, Emperor) laden with thrash (Megadeth, Slayer) and death metal (Morbid Angel, Immolation, Deicide) influences. This record is a faster, more melodic, and heavier auditory assault than their previous effort.

Hate signs with Metal Blade Records

Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the signing of Hate, the glorious death/black metal force hailing from Warsaw, Poland.

Hate have been praised by press and fans alike for years for creating lacerating and dark music, proven best on their current album, “Tremendum” (2017). The album saw ATF Sinner (vocals, guitars) utilize the dark aspects of the mystic and arcane Slavonic folklore to explore themes both personal and impersonal. It is an album that is relatable at first listen, but that is hard to fully know.

In 2018, we find Hate as ever, advancing. In preparation for what might be their most fruitful endeavor so far, to collaborate with the home of American metal, Metal Blade Records.
