Swedish symphonic extreme metal band Zornheym is preparing to unleash new album “Where Hatred Dwells and Darkness Reigns” this September 15th via Non Serviam Records.

With magnificent visual artistry in the form of cover art by Lordigan Pedro Sena and a concept expanding graphic novel illustrated by Anu Bring, every chapter tells gruesome tales of an asylum for the criminally insane.

The band comments: “This is the first chapter in the history of Zornheym and we are so very proud of the outcome. The performance of everyone involved has been amazing. To use so many real instruments from day one feels like such an accomplishment. This is just the beginning!”

Wing Studio’s sound wizard Sverker Widgren comments: “It was a great pleasure to take part in the journey of the creation of this record. To have Zornheym here in the studio with the ambition to make an album that is so much more than an ordinary metal album made me very excited to produce this recording from day one. Now looking at the final result, the power of Zornheym’s music can’t be denied really.”

The organizers of the 2017 Desertfest just checked in with this announcement about confirming four more bands:

“Hot on the trails of our last announcement, we’re back already with a quadruple punch of heavy rocking goodness that will get the blood rushing for October to come, for sure!

“We realize that for some of you internet-savvy Festers, the addition of the mighty Kadavar to the DF Antwerp line-up is a known fact already. So how about we turn it up even more, and drop Church of Misery as a headliner as well? And if that’s still not enough, would the announcement of Monolord do the trick?

“Yep, that’s what we thought! So as a cherry on the cake, let’s round it off with the Nottingham supergroup Church of the Cosmic Skull, who dropped one of the more memorable rock albums from last year. More great bands to come in the near future!”

“Monolith” by Amebix is one of those records that many have heard “of” but have never actually “heard.” Now thirty years old, it’s a record that still remains largely unmasked. Dissonance Productions looks to change that with the North American re-introduction to one of crust punk’s most prolific albums on June 30th.

Scene Point Blank calls it “essential” and The Obelisk refers to it as “legendary and massively influential.” Originally released in 1987, the second album from Amebix is an urgent and ugly album that drew both immediate praise and scorn.

It ultimately would be the last recording by the band for more than 20 years; founder Rob Baron Miller with brother Chris Stig Miller, and Spider splitting up shortly after the album’s release.

Clutch and Fantômas – in a very rare live performance – will join iconic band Tool along with Primus, Melvins, and DJ sets by The Crystal Method at Glen Helen Amphitheater in Southern California on Saturday, June 24th, 2017.

Clutch is touring in support of the band’s 11th album “Psychic Warfare,” while laying the groundwork for a next studio album release.

The brainchild of Mike Patton, Fantômas is an anti-hero from a series of pre-WWI French crime novels, sometimes dubbed the “lord of terror.” Rounding out the lineup are Buzz Osborne on guitar (Melvins), Trevor Dunn on bass (Mr. Bungle, Trevor Dunn’s Trio-Convulsant) ,and Dale Crover (Melvins) on drums. This will mark the band’s first U.S. show since 2008.

Tickets for the show, which is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents and Live Nation Los Angeles, are on sale now.

Long-running underground music zine Aversionline just premiered a new track from the upcoming “Scathed” album by New York solo outfit Gridfailure, which will see release in early June through Darker Days Ahead.

Check out the track “Condescender” below, which Aversionline calls “a six-minute spread of sinister dark ambient swaths, murky melodies, and vengeful vocal textures.”

Unloading ten defeating new anthems for hallucinogenic seppuku, Gridfailure’s “Scathed” sees minister of propaganda David Brenner delivering unpredictable wrath through unhinged power dementia. Paranoia-inducing atmospheres surround punishing vocal torrents, which writhe forth from the rubble of eroded guitars and bass, aneurythmic beats, lunatic keys/synth, theremin, didgeridoo, xylophone, harmonica, and more.

“Scathed” will see free digital download and handmade CDR release through Minneapolis-based Darker Days Ahead on June 2nd.
