BELPHEGOR UNVEIL OFFICIAL LYRIC & PERFORMANCE VIDEO OF 'THE DEVIL'S SON'!
[2018.02.28]

On Friday, European death/ black machine BELPHEGOR will invade Latin America and present tracks from their latest studio offering, and most successful album to date, titled »TOTENRITUAL«. This also marks the band’s first venture to Latin America since the release of the longplayer, and is followed by a crusade through Australia and New Zealand in May, a yet unrevealed Summer European tour in June and a return to some of the biggest festivals in summer.

On the occasion of this year's upcoming live rituals, BELPHEGOR present a lyrical performance video of 'THE DEVIL´S SON', a song dedicated to the legendary violinist Niccolò Paganini [1781-1849].

DEMONICAL
COUNTRY: SWEDEN
GENRE: DEATH METAL



DEMONICAL PREMIERE NEW TRACK "A VOID MOST OBSCURE"!
[2018.02.20]

Swedish brutal, melodic, old-school death metal tyrants DEMONICAL are premiering a new track "A Void Most Obscure" from their upcoming album "Chaos Manifesto" available for pre-ordering at goo.gl/vktcce.
Listen to the song on YouTube: https://youtu.be/Cj0ENrgDh_o






DEMONICAL REVEAL DETAILS ON "CHAOS MANIFESTO" NEW ALBUM AND UNLEASH FIRST SINGLE!
[2018.02.01]

Swedish brutal, melodic, old-school death metal tyrants DEMONICAL, will emerge with a brand new, fifth studio album titled "Chaos Manifesto", on March 23rd in Europe and April 27th in North America via Agonia Records.
Listen to the first single "Towards Greater Gods" on YouTube, at this link:
https://youtu.be/K6sNSADX_Fo



DEMONICAL arose from the ashes of formerly disbanded Centinex in 2006, and in comparison to its older sibling, executes death metal in a far more impetuous and melodic manner. "Chaos Manifesto" is a testament to that statement. After nearly five years since the release of the last full-length album "Darkness Unbound" (2013), the Swede's - now led by a new prominent death growler Alexander Högbom (October Tide, Centinex) - continue the traditional DEMONICAL path with fierce HM-2 driven death metal of utter brutality, yet return in a partially new, yet fully fit five-piece line-up.

From the violent album opener "A Void Most Obscure", via melodic mid-tempo anthems "Towards Greater Gods" and "Välkommen Undergång" (the band's first ever track is Swedish), all the way to the final song "Nightbringer", DEMONICAL once again prove that they're a force to be reckoned with in the extreme metal scene. The five-year gap between albums has not made the band become stale in ideas, either:

"Chaos Manifesto features some new elements and streaks the band hasn’t explored before" - comments bassist, Martin Schulman. "We have tapped an award-winning Swedish producer and we are confident that the album - which summons bits and pieces from all our previous releases - will become an improved quality-related chapter for Demonical, and push our Swedish Death Metal Darkness to a new level".

"Chaos Manifesto" was recorded in 2017 and both mixed and mastered by Karl Daniel Lidén (Terra Tenebrosa, Cult of Luna, Katatonia). The album artwork was designed by Karmazid (Urfaust, Wolfbrigade, Blaze of Perdition). Pehr Skjoldhammer of Alfahanne guest appears on vocals.



Tracklist:
1. A Void Most Obscure
2. Towards Greater Gods
3. Sung To Possess
4. Välkommen Undergång

SUSPERIA
COUNTRY: NORWAY
GENRE: BLACKENED THRASH/HEAVY METAL



RELEASE NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR "MY DARKEST MOMENT"
!
[2018.02.15]

Norwegian blackened thrash/heavy metallers SUSPERIA, comprising former members of Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon and Old Man's Child, released today a new music video for "My Darkest Moment". The song comes from our upcoming album "The Lyricist" (due out 3/16 via Agonia Records).

Watch the video for "My Darkest Moment" on YouTube:
https://youtu.be/oW00nyP9JTo



The video was filmed by Costin Chioreanu (Twilight 13 Media) and Gina Sandulescu.


"The Lyricist" is up for pre-ordering in an ample variety of formats here:

"The Lyricist"
will arrive nearly nine years to the day its predecessor ("Attitude", 2009) came out. Its release has been scheduled for the 16th of March on Agonia Records. The album is available for pre-ordering HERE.

The origins of SUSPERIA can be traced back to 1998 when Tjodalv, then occupying the drum seat with Dimmu Borgir, and long-time friend Cyrus (ex-Satyricon, Old Man's Child) got together to share ideas and write songs. Clearly rooted and seasoned in the Norwegian black metal scene, SUSPERIA elevated its sound into more melodic areas of extreme metal, embracing and exploring a variety of musical avenues with ease.

On "The Lyricist", SUSPERIA has gone back to its black origin in many ways, one of which is a more grimmer expression. The characteristic melodic twist the band is known for is still present, and an additional layer of variety has been added thanks to new vocalist, Bernt 'Dagon' Fjellestad (whose stage debut with the band was made at last year's 70000 Tons Of Metal Festival). From SUSPERIA's pragmatic point of view, the new album is a "good old-fashioned kick in the head, both old and new fans should find enjoyable".

"The Lyricist" was recorded at three different studios in Norway between February 2015 and May 2016. The album was later mixed and mastered at Strand Studio (Chrome Division, The Wretched End, In Vain) by Marius Strand. Cover design and artwork was prepared by Vincent Fouquet. New band photos were shot by Espen Bakken.

"The Lyricist" Tracklist:
1. I Entered
2. Heretic
3. The Lyricist
4. My Darkest Moment
5. Day I Died
6. Void
7. Feed The Fire
8. Whore Of Man
9. Come Alive

Album formats:
- Digipack CD
- Black LP
- Black & blue on trasnsparent LP
- T-shirt
- Girlie T-shirt
- Digital



Line-up:
Dagon
- vocals
Tjodalv - drums
Memnock - bass
Cyrus - guitar
Elvorn - guitar
