Today another track comes online from the debut album “Hydrogen” by Bardspec, the ambient project featuring Enslaved guitarist Ivar Bjørnson and Today Is The Day’s Steve Austin.

“Bone” in Bjørnson’s words is, “a song that is a meditation upon the concepts of strength and endurance, in the micro and the macro. How evolution has made us upright and made to be on the move – and how hard it can be to adapt those features into the realms of our psyche – so that we can undergo the mental evolution that is dormant within us.”

This idea of micro and macro represents the very essence of Bardspec, which is thematically and sonically about minimizing, subtracting and meditating upon the simplest essence of “things;” the single points, exemplified through the song titles like “Bone,” “Salt” and so on; the basic elements and foundations that make up the whole. There is an element of “space” in the music and the artwork, as a representation of the inner workings of the mind and the subconscious.

“Hydrogen” will be released on June 23rd across all formats, with previous song “Fire Tongue” available over here.

In addition to releasing upcoming full-length album, “Die On My Ride,” on June 2nd via M-Theory Audio, nomadic folk metal group Tengger Cavalry just announced a 25+ date North American headline tour featuring support from Felix Martin and Helsott.

After the release of the band’s first single and title track (streaming here), the band teased that more tracks would be released showcasing a different side of Tengger Cavalry both musically and conceptually.

Enter “Ashley,” a brand new, slightly pop-influenced ballad streaming below. The track delivers an expansion of the band’s influences and styles that will appeal to a wider fan audience.

Frontman Nature G explains: “Most of Tengger Cavalry’s songs are war or warrior related, telling stories of epic adventures that get our fans excited and ready to go raid with us! This song, however, is an experiment in personal emotion. It is a love song, and written in our signature sound, yet also blends in some pop music flavor, as a small surprise for our fans.”

Launches first single, “The Soul Collector”

On June 16th, Swedish death metallers Entrails will release their new album, World Inferno, worldwide via Metal Blade Records! To hear the first single, “The Soul Collector”, please visit: metalblade.com/entrails – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–180g black vinyl
–blue grey-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)

Entrails guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist comments: “I am damn proud to finally unleash this nasty beast, a new chapter is written for Entrails to satisfy all old school maniacs out there. Having new blood in the band, Martin and Tommy, helped making this fifth album the rawest and heaviest to date. Prepare yourself to stretch out your neck in full headbanging!”

The recordings for World Inferno started in December 2016 in Lundqvist’s Bloodshed Studio. Dan Swano once again handled the mixing and mastering for the album. Dan Swano comments: “I don’t know if I had said this before, but I say it again. Every time I start thinking about putting together some new SweDeath project, Entrails show up at my doorstep with a new album to mix, and every time I think ‘Fuck!! – What’s the point in making my own project when this is so fucking good, and exactly what I wanted to do…’ And if I felt there were some details to improve upon from our previous work together, they fix that and then some, and return with an album even stronger than the previous one. What the fuck is going on in Linneryd!? Is Jimmy cloning death metal warriors in some barn over there or what!? To sum it up. Yet another amazing slab of SweDeath coming your way from Entrails! Beyond. Blown. Away!”

World Inferno track-listing:
1. World Inferno
2. Condemned to the Grave

French act Worselder signed on with Sliptrick Records. The band will release the new album “Paradigms Lost” later this year, with information forthcoming soon.

“Making no concessions on style or trends…” – This could be the Worselder mantra and even though the band could just offer old school metal with no search of originality, Worselder prefer to develop music at the crossroads of many influences which is quite impossible to label. The band was formed in 2008 at the foothills of the French Pyrénées mountains and quickly created a unique sound signature, blending the many influences of its members through 90’s heavy-thrash and power metal roots. Worselder then add to the strength and heaviness with actual metal rhythms. The vocals underline the mixing of styles, by alternating between heavy lyrical lines and death gutturals.

The band is deeply and proudly committed to its Pyrenean roots; it influences the atmosphere of its music, which is both dark and optimistic, with lyrics formed from topical events, as well as historical references.

Stay tuned for more information.

Canadian folk metal act Mongol signed on with Sliptrick Records. The band, who just issued the new EP “Warrior Spirit,” will return to the studio to record the third full length effort entitled “The Return,” which will be issued later this year. The album will contain songs from “Warrior Spirit” as well. More information on that will be issued soon.

Forged in the frozen bowels of Edmonton, Alberta, Mongol pays homage to the Mongolian Empire of old. Blending heavy melodic riffs with an array of folk instruments and Asian harmonies, Mongol wield a sound as diverse as the nations the historical influences conquered. The unique sound has taken them on many exciting journeys, including co-headlining Mongolia’s first international metal festival, “Noise Metal Fest,” alongside folk metal icons, Nine Treasures, in 2014.

Since forming in 2009, Mongol has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such acts as Arkona, Kalmah, Nekrogoblikon, Havok, and many more.
