Melodic tunes and crushing metal riffs are what characterizes the band's sound. Guitar, violin and keyboard go hand in hand, further enriching the structure of the music. Lyrically, the band has dedicated itself to the telling of Swiss legends and myths, which are brought to the listener through fierce screams and female vocals.
Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-01-16 20:43 SCHWARZER ENGEL have just posted the lyric video for "Unheil", the new single off the upcoming album "Kult der Krähe" The new album is scheduled to be released on February 23, 2018 via Massacre Records, and is available as a jewel case CD with 10 tracks as well as a limited edition CD digipak and limited edition vinyl LP with 11 tracks each.
"Kult der Krähe" was mixed and mastered by Jan Vacik (Graveworm, Serious Black, Serenity) at Dreamsound Studios. It features dark hymns, that sound both majestic and brutal! With the new album, the band impressively shows how dark/gothic metal has to sound like in the 21st century.
Word Of Life merge specific music traditions and rhythmical patterns into the aggressive sound of metal, creating a blend and sound unique to the band itself. Jahbulon is the amalgam of progressive metal with Greek and Eastern elements that sit alongside both melodic and death/black metal vocal work. The album sounds heavy and mystical and aspires to vibrate and infiltrate you with energies from the past.
Inspired by the ancient mysteries of Greece, East and Egypt, the whole act is veiled in Esoteric and Occult symbolism and beneath these allegories lay the true essence of Jahbulon – the Triune entity. This is the true and central theme of the album. When you discover the true meaning of the the “Union of the Three”, you shall find the true knowledge of self.
The cover artwork is by Giannis Nakos (Remedy Art Design).
The album was recorded at Bree Studio, Athens, Greece and mixed and mastered by Bill Kranos.

News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-01-16 20:32 Italian metalcore quintet Forbidden Seasons have announced that their debut album ‘Promise’ will be released via This Is Core on 16th March 2018. The LP follows on from their 2017 debut, EP ‘Paramnesia’, with vocalist Mark Seasons saying of the title: “’Promise’ refers to all the promises made by people that are never fulfilled because of their selfishness.” As an introduction to the record, the lead single ‘Thank You For The Venom’ can also be streamed with Mark revealing “It’s one of our favorite songs, and it reflects the overall sound of the album, so we thought it was great to launch with it.” Hailing from Turin, Italy, the band is completed by Symon Ray on Lead Guitar, Danny Ghale on Rhythm Guitar, Paul J. Price on Bass and Federico Spagnoli handling both Drums and Keys. Founded in 2015, they simply came together as five individuals intent on realizing their dreams to play music. Mark explains the moniker: “It’s about discrimination and lack of half measures in society. Everything is completely bad or good, black or white. There’s no space for gray anymore. Forbidden Seasons, it’s like forbidden feelings, forbidden thoughts, forbidden actions, forbidden goals... So we thought that name fit great with this idea.” The writing of forthcoming LP ‘Promise’ began after their Russian tour in February 2017, with Mark revealing “it’s been both amusing and hard at the same time to create it. The lyrics address topics such as loneliness, anger, apathy and misplaced trust, and all of those are reflected on the listener.” Taking their time, recording took place over 7 months at HTR Studios in Turin and the outcome is self-described as “really reflecting who we are and the direction we want to take. Both in terms of sound and composition, it’s very different from Paramnesia, heavier than our last work; we wanted to create a deeper sound according to our emotional state.” Melodically charged, beauty meeting darkness, their sound evokes Saosin and Underoath, Forbidden Seasons certainly are a promising prospect.
The album’s full tracklisting comprises: 1. Atlantis | 2. Thank You For The Venom | 3. Keys and Locks | 4. Gravity Fall | 5. Wormhole | 6. The Human | 7. Sorrow Won’t End | 8. I’ve Seen The End In Your Eyes | 9. The Rejected | 10. Promise Forbidden Seasons Release Debut Album ‘Promise’ Via This Is Core On 16/03/18
The gripping rawness of the debut album A Brief Moment Of Existence screams out hard alongside the blend of madness & mayhem from For The Duration Of Psychiatric Treatment. The punishing metal melodies & extreme sounds of So Much So Little, So Little So Much scorch the record with additional killer material from the album Call It A Classic & the most recent Charming Timur record, Focused Rage.
So Far So Good chronicles the distance in Charming Timur’s range, songwriting & sound, revealing the astounding progression in the evolution of this project at the same time as housing eighteen of its most wickedly entertaining cuts & furious milestones. Each track represents a different dimension of the sound, style & history of the band – and every song has the signature mix of pure fury & brutalizing power strong enough to melt your speakers that you know, love & fully-expect from Charming Timur.
Every story leads somewhere. So Far So Good represents the culmination of a life spent toiling as an underground career-musician...a cautionary-tale of the grim realities, hardships and psychological breakdowns & breakthroughs that have been endured, all in the pursuit of art, however twisted. With this comprehensive montage of metal creating a conclusive ending to this chapter of Charming Timur’s story, the next part to come is sure to draw upon the inspiration these songs will continually provide. The music will continue to evolve and grow from here, thrashing, kicking and screaming as it does.
For now, this is the most badass summation of what’s been achieved throughout the years – all on one record. And for what it’s worth, it hasn’t been ALL bad...in fact, some might even say, So Far So Good.
Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-01-15 21:35 THE AMSTERDAM RED LIGHT DISTRICT (TARLD) have released their new video and single 'Carry On', ahead of new album Sapere Aude, set for release on March 2nd 2018 via Red Light Records. In the band's own words:
“We wanted to play on the concept of madness with this song. This world makes us lose ourselves, and sometimes we lose control. Each of us do have a normal side, and a crazy alter-ego on the other side. This interactive music video plays on this, with an opposition between a soft version of the band and the crazier version. Both teams take a look at each other. The bright side tries to keep calm while the dark side shows the fury. Which alter-ego are you today? Choose your team!”
