DEMONICAL  - Darkness Unbound - 2013 - Cyclone Empire
Genre: Death Metal

"(...)Children rejoice to hear His voice
Burn throughout this world
Our Devil's rebirth
The Darkness calls and we will answer
Loyal sons to the wicked ones
Raising hammers and unholy banners
Leading ammo into hungry guns
No victory without destruction
No victory while they still live
Unholy beast demands bloodshed
Gladly we raise the hammer once again(...)"
Hellfire Empire - Darkness Unbound

The Band:
Demonical
have been spawned upon this world in March 2006 by former Centinex members Johan Jansson (guitars & vocals), Martin Schulman (bass) and Ronnie Bergerståhl (drums), this with the mission to return to the roots of death metal and deliver to the metal world a sheer dose of darkness and brutality!
Since the debut full length "Servants of the Unlight" the band has been unleashing hell upon the death metal world, incinerating stages worldwide one after the other with their old-school death metal artillery! Demoncal are an ever-growing band, true to their death metal roots, playing some of the best death metal I heard these days! Uncompromised and straight forwards, their death metal battalion aims to invade your ears with such delightful brutality!
With the arrival of the current frontman, no other than Sverker “Widda” Widgren (Centinex, Diabolical, etc.) in March 2008 the band was at their full-force and ready to conquer the world with their enraged old-school death metal!
Demonical are a fearsome and addicting "must-listen-to" band for fans of
Grave, Facebreaker, Dismember, Unleashed, Bolt-Thrower, Devian, Necrophobic and many more! An absolute Swedish death metal product of quality and one of the best in their genre in fact!

The new album:
"Darkness Unbound", Demonical
's fourth full-length album is another step forwards on the bands career, becoming a natural development from the highly acclaimed "
Death Infernal" album. With this new release the band solidifies their status as one of the best Swedish death metal bands of today's days!
Demonical have already proved that they are a natural ever-growing force, instead of limiting themselves to a bunch boundaries in the rough death metal tradition, they re-invented the classic old-school sound and upgraded it into a way more powerful, dynamic and developed format. Combining in perfection the slower and the more aggressive components deep into a darkness unbound formula! Reminding what Hypocrisy done in the past, but without overdoing with the melodies or synth usage, expect nothing else but brutal and primal death metal here!
This album counts also with some great cover-artwork done by
Chilean artist Daniel Valencia (Fenomeno Design, e.g. Blut aus Nord, Merrimack, Manes, etc..)
"Darkness Unbound" crowns Demonical as one of the kings and best references on Swedish death metal, without a doubt this album sure sets a mark in Swedish death metal history!

Production and band members:
I must say that the recordings and album production done over the Necromorbus and Wing Studios by Mr. Widgren and the band is a perfect fit to the sound being created by Demonical, darkened enough to keep the old-school vibe and clean enough to keep the sound to elite levels, a smashing work here on these camp!
Demonical members are no strangers to death metal and they play it with a deadly formula and identity! Sverker Widgren is already a damn well known producer and singer around the extreme metal world, his vocals are powerfully enraged and the best fit to the bands current sound, Mr. Widgren is in fact another genius upon Swedish death / black metal scene!
Martin Schulman who also plays in the reborn Centinex, gives the band some ever-present bass kick-ass sound. The guitar work done by Johan Haglund and Daniel Gustavsson sure give the band all the right dose of ear-slashing brutality and melody, all combined in the right proportions! The new drummer Ämir Batar has surely contributed on this album with some of the best and most dynamic drum performances in a Demonical album!

Album tracks and highlights:
The whole album is an authentic discharge of old-fashioned death metal, from the darkly spawned introduction "Darkness Unbound" forwards, Demonical unleash Hell with outstanding tracks like
"The Order", "An Endless Celebration" or "Contempt and Conquest". Straight forwards and direct, these unbounded dark melodies really put the band on top of what is being done over Swedish Soils, an authentic Hell-raid of Scandinavian heaviest artillery! "King of All" gives you a chance to breathe once again in a well balanced heavy track, a slower delight to the already tortured ears! Quickly follows one of my own favourite tracks of the album, it goes by the title of "The Healing Control", a damn killer track with all the right balance of brutality and melody, all of this with a very own Swedish essence/vibe into... brilliant!
No-retreat, no surrender... the "Hellfire Empire", "Words are Death" and "Deathcrown" follow with devilish full-force, a damn aggressive track-pack that spares no ears with it's brutality, a massive and straight forward annihilation in form of music! Without a warning you face the "The Great Praise" that ends up the album with a pitch-black decadent apocalyptic darkness, a slower track that couldn't fit better at the end of this "Deathpiece" of Swedish art! As bonus on the digipack version of "Darkness Unbound" the band added "World Beyond" (Kreator cover) and the re-recorded "Burned Alive" track... so what to say? Two great additions to an already excellent album!

Epilogue:
In all "Darkness Unbound" reveals Demonical as one of the best death metal bands in Scandinavia, their identity and "know-how" sure detach them from today's days monotone extreme metal.
With this album Demonical have been, without any doubts, crowned as kings of Swedish Death Metal darkness! This album is a must-have release for any adept of Swedish death metal and death metal in general, without a doubt one of the best and most powerful death metal pieces of the year 2013! So what you are waiting for?! Go and get this Demonical elite extreme metal creation!

Hell-spawn darkness unbound rapes their holy flesh, rotten and decayed, the heavenly disciples lay dead at the apocalyptic fields of slavery! Raise your hammer and crush all the false gods!

HATE BIOGRAPHY

HATE have always been considered as one of the best representatives of so-called “Polish Death Metal Phenomenon” and as such, one of the leviathans of Polish metal scene along with Behemoth and Vader. The band was formed as early as in 1990 in Warsaw, Poland by guitarist and vocalist ATF Sinner. After numerous line-up changes and releasing a few records available solely in their native Poland, HATE signed their first international record deal with an American company World War III in 2000. The label released the group's early material on two discs titled “Holy Dead Trinity” (2000) and “Cain’s Way" (2002). A year later, the band signed a contract with French-based label – Listenable, and released their next, highly acclaimed album “Awakening of the Liar” (2003), which is still considered as one of the Polish death metal masterpieces. In 2004 HATE recorded an official DVD material titled “The Litanies of Satan”. Published by Metal Mind Productions, the DVD won a number of rave reviews in the metal press internationally. In that period the band’s style acquired some new characteristics - industrial and ambient elements appeared in the background of the main riffs. This style was later developed on the album “Anaclasis” (2005), which no longer presented traditional death metal but ingenious combination of death, black and heavy metal with distinct industrial influences. “Anaclasis” got great reviews in almost every metal magazine across Europe and was highly acclaimed as one of the most innovative albums in the genre. In support of the album, HATE went on their first full-fledged European tour with Carpathian Forest and Keep of Kalessin and appeared on a few important festivals such as Party.San Open Air and Winter Assault. In 2007 the band once again went on a European tour, this time accompanied by their countrymen Decapitated. In January 2008 the next album “Morphosis” was released on Listenable Records. It showed fast development of the band’s style as well as the production part. HATE got offers from numerous festivals, such as Metalcamp, Neurotic Death Fest, Brutal Assault, Screamfest, Summer Breeze O.A., Metal Heads’ Mission and more. In May 2008, HATE realized their first official video-clip for the song “Threnody”, which was shot in an actual coal mine in Silesia/Poland. The album “Morphosis” has also been officially released in the USA, South America and Russia. The year 2010 saw the band's further develpoment and intensive touring schedule. Their next album was titled "Erebos" and supported by tours in both Europe and America in the company of such groups as Hypocrisy, Sepultura, Rotting Christ and Mayhem. The band also visited Brazil, Mexico and Russia reaching as far east as Siberia. Coming back home, HATE shot their second official video for the title track "Erebos". In 2012 the group was offered a new record agreement by Austrian-based label Napalm Records. The album titled "Solarflesh" was released under the new flag in the beginning of 2013 receiving a lot of praise in the press and gaining the band further recognition the world over. In March/April 2013 the band was playing a European tour with Hypocrisy. In the early morning of April 6th, HATE's bassist Slawek "Mortifier" Archangielskij died in his sleep near Munchberg, Germany. He was discovered lifeless in the morning by other band members. An ambulance was immediately called in and Slawek was reanimated, but to no avail. An autopsy revealed that the cause of death was cardiac arrhythmia. Mortifer's tragic and unexpected passing was a hard blow and the band's contunuation was at question for some time. After a few weeks, however, the musicians announced that they would come back. Having Mortifer's wife Aleksandra on bass guitar, HATE took part in Hellfest Festival in France in June 2013. After that the band played a series of Summer Festivals around Europe with a session bassist and announced that they were working on a new material. In March 2014 HATE are going to tour Europe again, this time in the company of Norway's Kampfar, and in June they enter Hertz Studio in Poland to start recording the 9-th full-length album with release pegged for late this year through Naplam Records.

FACEBREAKER BIOGRAPHY

Facebreaker were formed in 1999, following a conversation between Janne, Roberth, Mikael and Jonas. They had similar music tastes and decided to start a brutal and straight-forward metal band. A few rehearsal-sessions later they added lead guitarist Janos to their line-up. Facebreakers first demo "Use Your Fist" was recorded at a local studio in the beginning of the new millennium.

In March 2001 they went back to the studio to record a promo demo called "Hate and Anger". 2002 U.K. based Rage of Achilles Records got hold of their promo and offered the band a deal. A Rage of Achilles compilation album called "Conquest For The Empire" was out in April, featuring Facebreaker along with other new signings on the label. In September Janos quit the band due to lack of time. Fortunately they knew a guitar-player named Mika and a line-up change took place.

In June 2003 Facebreaker’s promo demo "Hate and Anger" was released on seven-inch vinyl. In July the band entered Black Lounge Studios to record their first full-length album "Bloodred Hell". "Boodred Hell" was released in the beginning of 2004. It achieved great reviews and feedback all around the world. Unfortunately Rage Of Achilles went out of business somewhere between late 2004 and early 2005 and "Bloodred Hell" was never given the right amount of exposure it deserved.

Without a record-deal Facebreaker made a new promo demo and started to work on new material. Facebreaker got several offers from interested labels but finally choose to work with Singapore based Pulverised Records. 2007a new record-deal was closed with Pulverised Records and in July the band went back to Jonas Kjellgrens Black Lounge Studios to record their second full-length album "Dead Rotten and Hungry". 2008 Facebreaker released "Dead Rotten and Hungry" through Pulverised Records. The album is being licensed to Cyclone Empire for a limited edit. vinyl release. Facebreaker plays Party San Open Air in Germany and is getting enthusiastic feedback.

Facebreaker did their first European tour in 2009 and an amazing show at the With Full Force-Open Air Festival in Germany in front of more than 10,000 people. In September, “Bloodred Hell” is being re-released by Cyclone Empire with additional bonus tracks. A new worldwide record deal was signed with Cyclone Empire at the end of 2009.

On the first of January 2010 they started to record their third studio album called ”INFECTED”. This time they choose to work with Jonas Kjellgren at Black Lounge Studios and Peter Tägtgren at ABYSS studios.

“INFECTED” was released in October that same year. The release was followed by gigs and festivals all around Europe, and they did a massive show at the mighty Summer Breeze festival in 2011.

In 2012 they started to work on their upcoming fourth album “DEDICATED TO THE FLESH” and in January 2013 they entered Mr Plec’s The Panic Room Studios to record the drums. The rest was recorded in Slowly Rotting Studios and Crypt of Death Studios in their hometown Finspång and in Mars they went back to The Panic Room to do the mix and mastering. The result speaks for it self, a maximum assault of zombie death metal anger. Released in Europe 28.06.2013 through Cyclone Empire Records.

DIABOLICAL BIOGRAPHY:

Ever since DIABOLICAL was formed in Sundsvall, Sweden, in 1996 the band has caused confusion among the narrow-minded, constantly progressing, refusing to do the expected. Already with their early efforts "Deserts of Desolation" (mini album, 2000) and "Synergy" (2001) DIABOLICAL stood out as something different from the death metal bands coming up at the time, representing something unwilling to be categorized easily. The reception from fans and media was very good, resulting in a lot of coverage in major metal press at the time.

Following the success of the second full-length album "A Thousand Deaths" (2002) the band toured Europe several times in 2002-03 with AMON AMARTH, VOMITORY and DEFLESHED among others, co-headlined Open Hell festival (2002) and Kaltenbach Open Air (2003) and played several other festivals as well. The albums were later re-released in South America, and both albums were released in the USA as well.

2004-2008 the band only did few live appearances mainly due to Widgren’s intense and increasing work schedule producing other bands at his Necromorbus Studio.

But in 2008, after several years of record label related problems, DIABOLICAL returned with full force and delivered a milestone in their discography; taking their innovative death metal a huge step further they plunged the listener into the darkest corners of the human mind, bringing restrained aggression and cravings for vengeance to life in "The Gallery of Bleeding Art". The album received brilliant reviews and was followed by two small but very successful headline tours though Europe.

In January 2011 "Ars Vitae" was released, containing 17 tracks from different parts of the band's career. The newest material was recorded at Necromorbus Studio in 2010, and was again produced by founding band-member Sverker Widgren. The band did several tours between 2010 and 2011 in Europe and Russia in support of "Ars Vitae".

In 2012 an announcement was made that a new album was in the making. Entitled "Neogenesis" it stands out as something truly unique. The album raises the bar for concept albums as it apart from being a music album also is a novel. Uniting every song with a chapter of the book the music, lyrics, storytelling and philiosphy of "Neogenesis" blends together to create a profound experience that will surely leave a deep impression on the listener. "Neogenesis" will be released on the 27th of September 2013.
