25. 2. 2017  Obeta se zanimiv album all-star projekta John Frum 

Šest let je nastajal prvenec zasedbe John Frum (foto: Kristie Krause), ki v svojih vrstah združuje (nekdanje ali trenutne) glasbenike zasedb The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless, John Zorn itd. To so:

Matt Hollenberg (John Zorn, Cleric)/guitar
Eli Litwin (Intensus/Deveykus/Knife The Glitter)/drums
Derek Rydquist (Ex-The Faceless)/vocals
Liam Wilson (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Starkweather)/bass

O prvencu Stirring In The Noos je znano tole: 40 minutes of darkly psychedelic and meticulously crafted death metal, acting as a medium for malefic musings, the backdrop of a bad trip.

Kaj pa predstavlja ime? Kopiramo iz PR-sporočila založbe Relapse, prek katere bo dotični album izšel:

John Frum borrows its name from a relatively isolated group of natives in the South Pacific islands, known as a Cargo Cult, who first used the alias John Frum as a means to reject European ways, escape oppressive missionaries, and return to their old traditions. The narrative changed, during the war in the 1940s, to reflect their encounters with thousands of American soldiers who spectacularly descended on that region by sea and air with crates of wartime materials dropped from the sky, known as “Cargo.” These events drastically changed the beliefs and lifestyle of the islanders as they took the soldiers and their offerings to be god-like, as they descended from the heavens.

Alt-religious narratives induced by these encounters were incongruent with islanders’ long-held beliefs, yet the natives could not deny the call of the cargo. Attempting to reconcile their existing beliefs with the new understanding of the outside world led to some strange interpretations which evolved into a bizarre narrative about a dark-skinned soldier-deity who resides inside a nearby volcano, and who many believe will one day return, showering them in riches and technology.

Spodaj imate dražilnik!

25. 2. 2017  Angleži The Bleeding izdali nov album 

Igrajo pa death thrash. O albumu pravijo sledeče: In a world of hyper narcissism and apathetic delusion, half measures are no longer sufficient. Enter Rites Of Absolution; a 21st century horror story touching every splintered nerve ending and a hideous blood drenched vision of humanity's imminent demise. Bojda zvenijo kot miks zasedb Slayer, Morbid Angel, Pestilence, Coroner, Asphyx, v kar se lahko prepričate spodaj.

Album je izšel 19. februarja, o njem pa povedo sledeče: "With Rites of Absolution we held a lens up to the world and the result reflects the ugliness we saw. The title track itself for instance delves into the depths of religious hypocrisy, subjugation and tyranny the world over, which we sought to simultaneously both demonstrate and subvert with the brutalised concept of the album art. In 'Consumed Existence' we gaze into the bleak future of humanity, stripping the assets and natural resources of the Earth and, if we last long enough, the universe, until there’s nothing left to consume but ourselves. 'Dreams of Hatred' chronicles the growing mass mindset of narcissism, hatred and intolerance, where despising one another is becoming the new paradigm. We even journey back to ancient Egypt in 'Crook & Flail' which shows that none of this is anything new - mankind has often been led astray into a barren wasteland of suffering and misery by those who would promise much to many but deliver only to themselves; still we don’t learn from the failings of the past. Closing out the album we pay tribute to the late, great Chuck Shuldiner with our cover of 'Open Casket' from Death’s Leprosy album, a fitting testament to the sheer emptiness of what awaits once we depart this crumbling edifice of existence."

25. 2. 2017  The Crawling z novim spotom 

Death doom trio The Crawling predstavlja spot za single An Immaculate Deception, o katerem pravijo: "We think many of us have struggled with certain situations at some point in our lives, and subsequently developed a coping mechanism that was more destructive than healing. This song is centred on how, despite best efforts, people can become incapable of processing emotions; and end up in even darker places."

Single se nahaja na albumu Anatomy Of Loss, ki bo izšel aprila prek založbe Grindscene Records.

25. 2. 2017  Igorrr našli dom pri založbi Metal Blade 

Ljudem s širokim pogledom na glasbo je že dolgo časa znano ime Igorrr, ki pripada francoskem kolektivu, ki ga vodi Gautier Serre. Prek založbe Metal Blade bodo spomladi izdali album Savage Sinusoid, na kar je bend še dodatno ponosen:

This label is the home we want for our music…Throughout the years, Metal Blade has had really great taste in music, and a real capacity to promote extreme music - only a label like this could have been brave enough to release music like ours."

Igorrr je miks med ''black metal, death metal, baroque music, breakcore, and trip hop''.

24. 2. 2017  Pevec skupine Slaves hospitaliziran 

Ok, osebno te skupine niti ne poznam. Vem, da igrajo nekakšen novodoben žanr, ki ga mladina po svetu rada posluša…anyway… skupina sporoča, da je pevec Johnny Craig pristal v bolnici in bodo prihajajoči koncerti odpadli.

Ampak namen te novice ni ravno to, da je Craig pristal v bolnici ampak (spodnja) slika. Izpadel bom ''douche'', ampak HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ''Let me put my beenie on and look unconscious''…

24. 2. 2017  Domači The Canyon Observer z novim videom 

No, žal ne še z novim videospotom, vendar vseeno: domači depresivci The Canyon Observer so izdali video zapis njihove lanskoletne turneje po Kubi. Da so se res navzeli kubanske počasnosti, priča tudi dejstvo, da so za izdajo 5-minutnega filmčka potrebovali kar eno leto. Z drugimi besedami: na dan so zmontirali 0,0136986301369863 sekunde video posnetka. 

Ampak posnetek je fajn. 

Kot so fajn tudi oni.

22. 2. 2017  Nove potrditve za Brutal Assault 

Z angleščino nimate težav, zato podajamo sporočilo v izvirniku! Brutal Assault je potrdil še nekaj novih OMG bendov!

The Devin Townsend Project gig at BA 2010 edition was hit by a massive thunderstorm, where the heavens have opened up and tons of rain bombarded the stage and the fans.. The fans however stayed in front of the stage through the whole storm and together with the band thus created one of the strongest experiences in the history of the festival. And this year THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT shall once again return to our stage and add one more show not to be forgotten!

Swedish TIAMAT will perform a cornerstone of atmospheric metal - for the first time you'll be able to witness this ultimate festival experience with the Wildhoney album being performed in its entirety.

Both WALLS OF JERICHO and their frontwomen Candace Kucsulain should be in the metal dictionary under the entry powerful performance, don't miss this show out if you wanna see real relentless intensity in action! SWALLOW THE SUN on the other hand are a fine example of the sombre doom as trailblazed by Finnish bands. GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT is also returning to our festival after a great success they had at our fest in the past and it makes certainly pleased that our fans are open minded to welcome bands like them. Swedes THE CROWN on the other hand would probably have a success on every other metal festival out there and that's no wonder because they put on a hell of a melodic death thrashing show! BIRDS IN ROW are a French Deathwish inc hardcore punk band, with the label affiliation already giving you an idea about their attitude. We are also proud to have meditative and disharmonic death metal diamond forged by fire and ice - ZHRINE from Iceland on the bill!

And in the end we would also like to make the fans of contemporary attitude happy so we are welcoming aboard OCEANS ATE ALASKA and VISION OF DISORDER.

Cenejše vstopnice so na voljo do 30. aprila - dobite jih tukaj.

22. 2. 2017  Namesto Shining na Winter Days of Metal prihajajo Rotting Christ! 

Še manj kot mesec dni nas loči od zimskega metal festivala Winter Days of Metal, mlajšega brata festivala MetalDaysZimske metal počitnice, ki bodo potekale med 19. in 25. marcem, bodo gostile 25 nastopajočih metal bandov, med drugim norveške black metalce Taake, peklenske trash metalce Destruction, diabolične death/black metal umetnike Belphegor, švedski gothic/doom/dark metal band Draconian, prišlo pa je do zamenjave na prvi koncertni dan, v ponedeljek, 20.3.: namesto Shining bodo na oder dvorane Danica v Bohinjski Bistrici stopili Rotting Christ!

Grki Rotting Christ so eni od prvih black metal bandov v regiji, iz katere prihajajo. Nesporni kralji grške black metal scene so krivi za ti. grški black metal zvok, ki je prevladoval v zgodnjih 90-ih, hkrati pa so eden od redkih grških bandov, ki je dosegel tudi svetovno prepoznavnost in Grčijo postavil na zemljevid black metal žanra.

Na festivalu Winter Days of Metal bodo nastopili v ponedeljek, 20. 3. 2017.

22. 2. 2017  Danes brutalačina v Ortu 

Malignancy so stari mački vzhodnoobalne death metal scene, na katero so se prebili že v devetdesetih, še posebej s prvencem Intrauterine Cannibalism, njihova nesporna klasika pa je album iz leta 2007, Diaries Of The Grotesque. Težki riffi? Check! Brutal vokills? Itak! Blastbeaten devastation? Deri! Nekdanji člani zasedb Hydrocephalic, Mortal Decay, Mortician ipd. vedo, kako se zadevi streže, kar tudi dokazuje najnovejši EP Malignant Future ter še vedno aktualni album (iz leta 2012) Eugenics. Pa tudi to, da njihov bobnar, Mike Heller, igra pri Fear Factory pove marsikaj. Tole bo pokalo ''ko prasica''!

Veliko večje presečenje pa predstavlja ime Nader Sadek. Nekdanji egipčanski državljan se je precej časa nazaj preselil v New York ter s svojimi vizualijami in predvsem tekstilijami očaral tiste, ki radi pogledajo v svet agonizirajoče umetnosti. To so videli tudi Mayhem, ki so Sadeka spremenili v uradnega kreatorja njihovih odrskih scen. In možakar, ki vseeno prihaja iz dokaj divjih koncev sveta, je ekstremni metal seveda očaral. Do te mere, da je napisal glasbo in besedila ter jih predal Blasphemerju (ex-Mayhem), Flou Mounierju (Cryptopsy), Stevu Tuckerju (Morbid Angel), ki so uresničili njegovo vizijo in svet navdušili z albumom In The Flesh. Ekipa je tudi začela nastopati v živo, nazadnje so v Evropi bili predlani, ko je live-ekipo doletela prijetna sprememba v obliki vokalista Travisa Ryana iz Cattle Decapitation. Kdo bo tokrat nastopal v bendu Naderja Sadeka, ne vemo, je pa gotovo, da bo šlo za death metal doživetje, kot ga še niste videli - kar lahko izkusite, če na YouTube najdete DVD-rip live nastopa Living Flesh.

Ostale zasedbe, ki vam ne bodo dale dihati, so kolumbijski Carnivore Diprosopus ter ameriški Embryonic Devourment ter Stages Of Decomposition.

Brutal bo brutal! Koncert ni razprodan! Časnovica je:

BRUTAL TIMING OF DEATH!
