A new 26 minute documentary video has come online featuring Valborg (Germany) and Bloodway (Romania). Check out “Otherworlds Over Éire” below.

After touring together in Romania, the two bands decided to embark on a new journey together in Ireland, while Romanian filmmaker & journalist Gina Sandulescu followed these unique musical entities to chronicle the journey.

Although they are extremely different bands, they are both based on a common premise: they cannot be easily categorized, incorporating death metal, progressive, gothic, doom, black and avant-garde tendencies.

Liverpool group Loathe has announced plans to release debut album, “The Cold Sun,” with SharpTone Records on April 14th. Today, the band releases new song and video, “Dance On My Skin” (available below), along with album pre-orders here.

“The Cold Sun” is a concept record; a compelling 35-minute-long meandering into the depths of a dark, post-apocalyptic tale. The record follows the adjacent timeline of two protagonists, who exist during a dystopian future, stricken by tragedy and the ever-looming apocalypse.

For this album, Loathe traveled to Glow In The Dark Studios in Atlanta, Georgia to record under the watchful eye of producer Matt McClellan (Underoath, The Devil Wears Prada, Being As An Ocean).

“Our writing process varies from song to song, but usually it takes one of us to have the initial vision for what we want to create. We then each add our own personal input which completes the piece,“ states Shayne Smith, when asked about the quintet’s approach.

Bursting with old-school NYHC groove and West Coast crossover, Higher Power’s “Soul Structure” LP is about positive expression of aggression and a form of escapology. It’s about finding a positive outlet for anger, whether it’s social issues or mental health. The album was recorded by Misha Hering at Holy Mountain, with vocals recorded by James Atkinson at Mutiny Studios. The album was mixed by Arthur Rizk at Salomons Gate and mastered by Joel Grind, with artwork by Sam Bailey.

Modern progressive/world fusion guitarist Felix Martin drops his 15-track full-length album, “Mechanical Nations,” today. In celebration of today’s release, a guitar playthrough video for the new track “Cosmo Basket” comes online.

Felix Martin states, “This song is one of my favorites from the album. The intro is a duo between drums and guitar, I’m trying to imitate the sound of the drums by doing heavy percussion with the guitar, playing as heavily as I can.

“The second part is more reminiscent of ambient music, almost like techno and house-inspired in some parts. Then, the last part is more like a prog rock tune. The three parts are really different and it showcases the varying ideas that define the album itself.”

Suicide Silence today releases a new conceptual music video for “Dying In A Red Room.” The track comes off the band’s freshly unveiledself-titled offering, which as of today is available everywhere on Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Eddie Hermida (vocals) states: “The way ‘Dying In A Red Room’ came about was simply being on tour in the back lounge one crazy night and that riff was spewed out and stuck. We started jamming it and that song was done quick and natural. We wanted that song to be very fluid.

“The song is meant to be a love song to the ghosts we carry around with us. To never be afraid to be yourself or listen to your heart. In a way that is always what this band has wanted to represent. Fearlessness.”

Also, don’t miss Suicide Silence’s remaining very intimate in-store signings at these upcoming dates and locations:

Feb 25th – El Cajon/San Diego, CA – FYE (Parkway Plaza, 761 Parkway Plaz) – 5:30PM

First launching on to the Edmonton metal scene in 2006 and releasing debut EP “Project Infection” in 2012, Absinthe From Society returns in 2017 after a short hiatus with next release “The Angels Ignored Us,” which officially drops today.

Comprised of founder Ian “Saint Absinthe” Harper and Adam “The Caveman” Roberts (drums & percussion), along with Lexi “Shitkicker 9000” Graham (bass & vocals), the trio combine an aggressive sound with ethereal texture.

Ian Harper comments: “Existing fans will love it and hopefully other people who hear it for the first time will be impressed. The EP has a lot of raw sound, which was part of the goal for the EP. We didn’t want anything overly produced because that seems to be the trend these days, and we feel that live music is really at the root of any musical renaissance.

“We find our music attracts different people. We have a heavier sound, but we do have softer melodies. My lyrics are emotionally charged and give each track its own personality. In this new EP, my writings deal mainly with relationships and especially toxic ones, which I’m sure many can relate to along with feelings of frustration and anger as well as sadness. Overall, whether you’re a mosher or someone who stands and grooves, we find we’ll appeal to most in the metal spectrum.”

2. A Man Possessed (4:05)
3. Never (4:49)
4. Worth It (4:04)
