JIRM: ‘Candle Eyes’ Video From Stockholm Space Rockers ‘Surge Ex Monumentis’ Full-Length To See Release Via Small Stone



Surge Ex Monumentis, the impending new full-length from Swedish heavy rockers faction JIRM, formerly Jeremy Irons And The Ratgang Malibus, will drop via Small Stone this March. In advance of its release, we are pleased to unveil the official video for album opener, “Candle Eyes.”


Writes The Obelisk, “With an underpinning of space metal, heavy progressive swirl and a flourish of psychedelic reaching, the six-minute ‘Candle Eyes’ begins Surge Ex Monumentis with a feel that’s both classic and vital… JIRM have their own agenda and their blend when it comes to bringing together heavy rock and prog, and by injecting a current of ’80s-style metal grandiosity – notice I didn’t say ‘glam-diosity;’ that’s not what we’re talking about here – they find a niche for themselves and begin to dig into what will likely be a continuing process of forward creative growth.”


Adds the band of the track, “A man climbs the tree of life, the tree which is connecting the earth with the stars, the tree which connect you with everything…. Only to witness that this life is not for the humankind, so he crawls back down again… True story…Ain’t it?”



Surge Ex Monumentis will see release on CD, digital, and limited edition 2xLP formats via Small Stone on March 16th. Preorders are currently available at THIS LOCATION.


Sometimes in life you have to make a change. And sometimes you have to make a whole bunch of changes. So it is that JIRM is born and stands where once stood Jeremy Irons And The Ratgang Malibus. Having dropped the cumbersome moniker, the Swedish heavy rockers embark on a new era with Surge Ex Monumentis – marked as much by a tightening of sound as name.


For their first record as JIRM, the Stockholm-based four-piece of vocalist/guitarist Karl Apelmo, guitarist Micke Pettersson, bassist Viktor Källgren, and drummer Henke Persson cast off the shackles of expectation entirely. Their style is no less expansive, but it’s become entirely their own, a driving mind meld between psychedelia, classic metal, heavy rock, and individualized realms beyond. Surge Ex Monumentis brims with newfound energy at the same time it benefits from the lessons JIRM have learned since first getting together in 2004 and releasing albums like Elefanta(2009), Bloom (2011), and Spirit Knife (2014), a record Mass Movement crowned, “a blissful mixture of Soundgarden at their grooviest and Pink Floyd…a terrific album of sunny day, top down, cruising music.”


With as much progressive force as raw sweat behind them, JIRM has never been more themselves than they are on Surge Ex Monumentis, and even as they redefine who they are and what they do as a band, they remain singularly powerful in their delivery and completely unmistakable. The seven-track offering was captured at Puch Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, mixed by Oskar Lindberg at Svenska Grammofonstudion in Gothenburg, Sweden and mastered by Chris Gooseman at Baseline Audio Labs in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

UK Death Metal Overlords ‘De Profundis’ Sign To ‘Transcending Obscurity Records’ New Album In Early 2018!



2017 was a momentous year for De Profundis, as they have celebrated their tenth anniversary as a recording band with exciting tours across the UK and Europe with the likes of TaakeNecrophagia and David Vincent‘s I Am Morbid. They also released the Decayed: 2007 – 2017 career retrospective collection, 10,000 copies of which were distributed with newsstand copies of the UK’s number one extreme music magazine, Zero Tolerance. The celebrations of the past concluded with a stunning show at the Unicorn in London, the venue where the band played their first gig all those years ago. Now the time has come to look to the future once more…

We are delighted to announce that De Profundis have signed a worldwide deal with Transcending Obscurity Records. Based in India, Transcending Obscurity is one of the fastest growing and most well respected labels in the world of underground music and De Profundis will be joining a roster than can already boast the likes of PaganizerOfficium TristeEchelon and other renowned extreme metal names from around the  globe.

Speaking about their new label, the band have issued the following statement:-
“We are excited to sign with Transcending Obscurity as over the last few years we have seen their profile rise and rise with the signing of top quality extreme metal bands – including the legendary Paganizer. We were looking for a label to push De Profundis into our next decade of existence and in Kunal we have found someone who shares our enthusiasm, professionalism and work ethic. Now that we have joined forces with Transcending Obscurity we cannot wait to unveil details of our fifth album which will be our heaviest to date. We promise you 2018 will the year of De Profundis!”

Meanwhile label boss Kunal Choksi commented:-
“”I’ve seen the band grow closely and as fate would have it, got the chance to work with them. They’re evidently a very serious and professional band, and after listening to their new album which is more death metal and powerful than before, I feel this will be a great partnership. I can’t wait to work towards giving it a worldwide release in early 2018.”

As both statements make clear the new album from De Profundis is set to be released in early 2018 and it is undoubtedly the heaviest, most intense album of the band’s career so far. To mark this new beginning De Profundis have unveiled a new band logo, designed for them by Gary Ronaldson of Bite Radius Design (KreatorMisery IndexPig Destroyer etc), which reflects the savage new twist to their trademark style.

Details of pre-orders and the various formats will follow shortly, as well as the reveal of the awesome album artwork – watch this space!

DispersE Guitarist Jakub Zytecki to Release Solo Album Ladder Head / Feather Bed to be released on February 23rd



Instrumental Prog artist and guitar virtuoso Jakub Zytecki has announced the release of his two part album Ladder Head / Feather Bed, to come out on the 23rd of February.

Over the course of creating this two part record, Jakub has excelled in combining technical aptitude, instrumental finesse and ethereal soundscapes to create not only an impressive release, but a truly remarkable state of awe and ambience. This is perfectly demonstrated by the third track of Feather Bed, ‘Letters’. Such a track strikes a balance between dreamy atmospheres, wondrous melodies and harmonies whilst including 60s/70s aesthetics. Having also been involved in the Prog Rock band DispersE as a guitarist, this double sided album marks the start of an exciting expedition of thrill and astonishment for the young prodigy. 
The two sided solo record incorporates the teachings of mystic and lecturer Terence McKenna, offering extra dimensions of ambiguity and allurement to complete an already fascinating release.
Born and raised in Cracow, a renowned city of culture and the arts, Jakub’s upbringing and life are one of the many vital components to Ladder Head / Feather BedJakub aims to resume this musical expedition by releasing a full length solo album in Autumn 2018.

Band For The Day: The Zenith Passage

Band For The Day: The Zenith Passage



Our band for the day (That’s rarely daily)! 

In this random and rare post we give this massive accolade to ‘The Zenith Passage’. I bet they’re proud! 

This was easily one of the best technical death metal albums released in recent times and one I keep returning to. Hence I gave them this irregular accolade. I should do this a lot more often as there’s so much great music I could spread after the promotion had ceased…

Get this masterpiece into you!
