Sierra Mountains-dwelling cosmic blackened death project Sxuperion will unleash the mutilating “Myriad” EP next month via Bloody Mountain Records.

Sxuperion is the project of Valdur, Weverin, and Endless Blizzard drummer Matthew S. The final nail in the cosmic coffin, the “Myriad” EP follows the musical and instrumental path laid by the 2016-issued “Cosmic Void” offering centering itself on the view of a world being governed by human insecurities through the eyes of a space traveler. When the chariot is full, it is time leave… to beyond the cosmic corridors.

Mixing was captured at the Bloody Mountain Bunker and Canyon Lodge Studio by Matthew S. with mastering by Sean Psykho Combat at the Ritual Room. “Myriad” will see official release on CD and digitally September 1st.

– August 7th, 2017 –

Byzantine – the most underrated band from the New Wave of American Heavy Metal Movement! – recently released their new album, The Cicada Tree, via Metal Blade Records; for their efforts, the band has now entered the Billboard charts! See below for all positions:

#11 Current Digital Albums
#16 Current Hard Music Albums
#29 Record Label Independent Current Albums
#145 Top 200 Current Albums
#13 Top New Artist

To state that The Cicada Tree is “classic Byzantine” in no way implies that this is an album solely rooted in the band’s past. Certainly, all of the hallmarks that have made their sound so compelling for close to two decades are present and correct: muscular yet lithe riffs and fluid leads play against gripping, dynamic and at times unpredictable rhythms, while rich melodies and lyrics that are both involved and intelligent wind their way through every track. But, once more, the groove metal unit has continued their steady evolution – the interplay between their members organic and natural, imbuing the record’s sixty-two-minute running time with a freshness and urgency. Founding member Chris “OJ” Ojeda states, “The first few albums, you’re trying to find your sound, and sometimes you tend to not see the forest for the trees. Now, on album number six, it seems a calmness took hold during the songwriting process, possibly from just having more confidence in our sound. At this point, our fans expect us to experiment and push our boundaries, which is an extremely liberating feeling.

Haken is set to hit the road in North America later this month for the band’s 10th anniversary tour. In advance of that trek, the band just released a brand new psychedelic and sci-fi animated video for the track “Lapse,” taken from last year’s “Affinity” (reviewed here) and created by Miles Skarin at Crystal Spotlight.

The band comments: “Lapse was one of the first tracks we wrote for Affinity. Now more than a year since the album’s release, it’s great to finally give this song a chance to stand out on its own, as it’s one of our favorites!

“Visually, we wanted to maintain a consistency with our videos for ‘Initiate,’ ‘Earthrise,’ and ‘The Endless Knot,’ so we returned to Miles Skarin at Crystal Spotlight to complete the series. The video incorporates a 3D motion capture technique (previously used on Frost*’s ‘Numbers’ video) to tie in with Affinity’s themes of artificial intelligence/consciousness.”
