UK Based Death Metal Band ‘Nihill Eyes’ Release Debut Album ‘Black Path’ On Friday The 13th

 

 

Friday the 13th of October, 2017…mark that date well. On that day a new force will enter the eternal conflict, a new power will raise its standard over the field of battle. The resolute, unflinching, unwavering, unstoppable death metal of Nihil Eyes’ debut album, Black Path, will come roaring out of the darkness, crushing all that dare to oppose it. A machine of war, driven past the point of reason, recognising only two alternatives – victory or death.

Following in the battle-hardened footsteps of their forbears, war torn legends like Bolt Thrower and Carcass, Nihil Eyes are here to show the world that British death metal can still go toe-to-toe with the world’s elite; that the birth place of metal still possesses the firepower to compete on every level. Formed in 2016 by lead vocalist/guitarist Casey Jones and drummer Szymon Ogiello, the duo were joined in early 2017 by bassist Max Morgan. With the crew complete the heavy artillery of Nihil Eyes was ready to roll and progress has been ferociously rapid. It’s incredible that an earthshaking barrage like Black Path is ready to be unleashed scant months after the band’s line-up was solidified. Such is the accomplished poise and presence that radiates from monstrous steel-clad tracks like ‘Treachery And Id’ and ‘Burn The Leech’, that you’d swear they were the work of veteran campaigners.

Mixed and mastered by the legendary Dan Swanö (Asphyx, Bloodbath, Incantation and too many others to mention) the sound on Black Path is soul-shaking in its dark power, the drive and force behind the immaculately crafted, armour plated tracks simply fearsome. Lyrically speaking, Casey Jones describes the album as “a series of psychological thought experiments exploring the human condition” and these dark explorations add a challenging edge to the shadowy atmosphere that hangs over the album like gun smoke.

We were sent on their promo by Imperative PR and I have to say I’m very impressed by this album. Start to finish this is an excellent Death metal release! 

Considering this is the bands debut album, there’s more than enough here to show this band could easily be up there with the big boys within the UK Death metal scene in a short space of time! 

We have included their previously released track ‘Treachery And ID’ here so you have a direct link to check them before the album drops tomorrow.

A band I’ll be firmly keeping an eye on going froward! A top class Death Metal release with great political lyrical content. 

One to watch! 

9/10

 

 

Line-up:
Casey Jones – Vocals/Guitar

Texas Based ‘Burn Ritual’ Sign With Cursed Monk Records

 

 

In another massive step forward, Galway based Cursed Monk Records have now signed Texas based Doom band ‘Burn Ritual’. With the label purely featuring Irish acts until now, this will surely help their expansion into International territories and aide in their overall growth! 

They released this statement. 

Burn Ritual is a doom metal band based out of San Antonio, Texas, brewing its own brand of heavy riffs, bluesy hazy vocals, and massive hypnotic fuzzed out tones.  The band combine their love for traditional doom and stoner rock bands with a modern element making it a unique but familiar journey for the listener.  Burn Ritual is the brainchild of vocalist/guitarist Jake Lewis, who performed and recorded on most of the band’s debut EP Like Suffering, which was mastered by Tony Reed of Mos Generator. The one man project soon paved way for the necessity for a full band of musicians to bring the songs to the stage the way they were meant to be heard , loud and in your face!  Now a full four piece band, Burn Ritual plans to keep performing for the rest of the year and then start recording its first full length album in the beginning of 2018 which will be released by Cursed Monk Records.

Their well received EP ‘Like Suffering’ is here for you to stream in full.

SCOUR: New Song “Piles” From Extreme Metal Supergroup Featuring Members Of Down, Pig Destroyer, Cattle Decapitation, And More; Housecore-Bound Red EP Nears Release

 

 

Red is the impending new EP from extreme metal supergroup SCOUR. With a pedigree covered in viscera, SCOUR is the brainchild of Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint), John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), Chase Fraser (Animosity, Decrepit Birth), and Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index). Their latest manifestation serves as part two of a three-part EP series.

Red will see release on CD, digital, and vinyl formats on November 3rd

“This is one of our favorite SCOUR songs,” says Engemann, “‘Piles’ comes in hot with blistering melodies wrapped around some serious vocal brutality.”

 

 

Forged in 2015, SCOUR‘s punishing mix of black metal, grindcore, and thrash made its debut with the ferocious single “Dispatched.” The band’s debut EP, Grey, was released the following year via Anselmo’s own Housecore label. Just before a crushing performance at Hellfest Open Air, which featured a cover of the Pantera classic “Strength Beyond Strength,” the band recorded their Red EP at Nodferatu’s Lair with Steve Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.) at the helm. The record was once again mixed and mastered by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation, Cobalt, Khemmis) at Flatline Audio.
