Blackened Metal/Sludge Band ‘Beggar’ Release New Single ‘Nine Atmospheres’ Debut LP ‘Compelled to Repeat’ Out April 2020 Via APF Records

Emerging from the nihilistic quagmire of London, four-piece BEGGAR propound a kind of sludge-meets-extreme-metal carnival of tar thick riffs, blasts, emotional discharge and anguish.

Today the band have released standalone track and video ‘Nine Atmospheres’ which showcases the band at their most raw and misanthropic point. Recorded with Wayne Adams (responsible for recent works by Green Lung, 11Paranoias and Terminal Cheesecake) at Bear Bites Horse, London and mastered by the master of noise himself, James Plotkin (Sunn O))), ISIS, Pelican and Earth), the track comes ahead of their debut album Compelled To Repeat which is scheduled for release in April 2020 via APF Records

Commenting on the track vocalist Charlie Davis says: “The track ‘Nine Atmospheres’ is about pressure, anxiety, the corporate world and the environment. It’s about the banality and the aggression of the contemporary world and the struggle to reconcile yourself to social and economic norms and to the destruction of nature. However, in a larger way, it’s also about the moments in which you can see straight through that world to something a bit older and darker (‘liquid magma lakes’, blistering lava’, etc.) The title ‘Nine Atmospheres’ refers to the amount of pressure measured in atmospheres that the human body can withstand underwater before it begins to rupture (like the track begins to rupture towards the end).” 

BEGGAR will release their debut album, Compelled to Repeat, in April 2020 on APF Records with more information to follow in the new year.

Swedish Melancholic Black Metal Trio OFDRYKKJA Debut New Song ‘SWALLOWED BY THE NIGHT’ New Album ‘GRYNINGSVISOR’ Out Nov 29th

Revered Swedish experimental black-metal band OFDRYKKJA will release their third full-length album, Gryningsvisor, on November 29th with AOP Records. The band has debuted the record’s latest offering, “Swallowed By The Night,” which premiered yesterday at FolkNRock.com, and can be streamed now at the link below

Commenting on the song, Pessimisten (vocals, horns) says, “The lyrics of ‘Swallowed by the Night’ is written in short sequences, like nightmares a sub conscience would create, based on the current state of mind. Stories made out of unprocessed emotions. It is truly a dark song, as dark as the night – but even the longest of nights will have its dawn, and while this song tells the stories of a long struggle, it is in fact about those first, warm sun rays piercing through the trees, after a very long and cold night.”

Formed eight years ago out of necessity to cope with agonizing depression, debilitating addiction and endless pain, OFDRYKKJA has seen the light amongst the darkness for their latest record, which translates to “Ballads At Dawn.” After years of self-inflicted turmoil and suffering, the trio has found solace in healing and self-reflection which is heard on their latest evolution, Gryningsvisor.  

Eight years ago, three darkness consumed men seeked to ventilate their seemingly endless struggle through addiction and mental illness conjured their first album “A life worth losing“. Drabbad was gunned down by police and spent a three year prison sentence, with most of the songs on their second album written from within the prison walls. Having hit rock bottom, the band sought a way out of that dark wilderness, releasing “Irrfärd” (which translates to ‘Aimless journey’). Following the release the band went their separate ways to pursue personal journeys that eventually led them to find peace in sobriety and awakening purpose, and ultimately to their forthcoming record, Gryningsvisor.  

Drabbad adds, “Ofdrykkja has always been an instrument of therapy for us, and therapy exists to help one evolve. It would serve us no purpose to walk in old footsteps, and neither would it be authentic to force it. We hope you appreciate our evolution, both personal and musical.”

Chinese Metal Compilation ‘Dead Emperor’ Released

Dead Emperor ( 逝帝 ) is the new compilation album presented by Scholomance Webzine, delivering a unique spotlight to China’s musical culture. The album encompasses the region’s heritage and traditions, but also its modernity, diaspora, and diversity. The album focuses not only on Chinese-sounding bands who would rely only on its recognizable folkloric heritage, but instead to highlight the breadth of metal music coming from China.

It is difficult to pin down the Chinese musical style and community to a single “scene” due to the vastness of the territory, but also because of the impressive variety of genres found in the region. From shoegaze to extreme black metal, Buddhist to Satanic lyrical content, Dead Emperor presents a panoramic experience of some of the greatest bands based in China.

Scholomance Webzine did not hesitate to cross or even ignore political borders in this compilation in order to offer this selection of talented bands, which also includes artists from Hong Kong and Taiwan.

A colossal release with 26 full-length tracks in HD quality, Dead Emperor provides a staggering collection of music from this mysterious region of the world. Best of all, the album is available for streaming and download completely for free.

Cursed Sun Release New EP Vendetta

Cursed Sun Release New EP Vendetta

Formed in 2007 Cursed Sun are one of the longest existing bands on the local Northern Irish metal scene. They have recorded an album and Five EP’s. Their sound is a mixture of thrash, death, groove with a strong sense of melody.

In their own words.


Like all bands starting up, back in 2007 Cursed Sun, set out to conquer the world…admittedly that is still a major fucking work in progress and it’s been over a decade of keeping the metal flame burning in Belfast Northern Ireland.

Thousands of hours of dedication both collectively and individually that we could have spent slumped on the sofa slumped watching TV, we’ve been worshipping at the altar of heavy fucking metal, come rain or shine (usually rain ). Investing our time and hard earned money with no expectation or care of return, pouring our souls into Cursed Sun has been something special and we’re immensely proud of this band and our music.

EP number five Vendetta is now upon us. It’s arguably their best to date and easily their most direct. Cursed Sun are/were/will be liable to do anything with their sound without apology and shouldn’t either. Fuck you! 🙂

Stream it in full here!

1. Replicant
2. Crawlspace
3. Fallen City

Elder Druid Release New Single/Video ‘GOLGOTHA’

Elder Druid have released their latest single/video GOLGOTHA’ from their forthcoming album of the same name via Doomed & Stoned.

This is arguably their best work to date and another massive stride forward for the lads. They’re doing everything right so hopefully fortune favors them!

Guitarist Jake had this to say about the video.

“Golgotha,” Jake Wallace explains, “is the name of a kind of haunted train that gets derailed, so that explains the train footage at the start and end of the music video. We’re kinda playing survivors in the video, finding our instruments post-crash, etcetera. Other than that, it’s just loads of cool smokey scenes and masked ghouls doing a ritual. It was all filmed by Exposing Shadows Photography in Woodburn Forest in Northern Ireland.”

They released this statement.

‘GOLGOTHA’ MUSIC VIDEO OUT NOW!

Delighted to have Doomed & Stoned premiering our brand new music video for the title track from our upcoming album ‘Golgotha’.
