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.
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!”

Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-01-15 21:26 SEBASTIEN releases a brand new official video for a song called "Winner"! The video was filmed in QWERT Boxing Club in Pilsen (CZ) by David Havlena from Spark TV (who worked also for bands like CITRON, KREYSON, or DORO PESCH). Mayo Petranin (SIGNUM REGIS) appears here as a guest vocalist. SEBASTIEN's new album, "Act Of Creation", is going to be released worldwide via Pride and Joy Music on 23rd February
Since its original release in Japan, Sin Eater has become an indispensable part of Saber Tiger’s live set. Understandably, because the song is very representative of the band’s sound, which balances intense riffs and dramatic melodies. The song tells the story of a man who has angered God and is punished with immortality, eternally consuming the sins of repentant sinners, who are given mercy in return. Saber Tiger show their versatility by capturing both the pain and the anger of the Sin Eater in the eponymous song.
Sin Eater is written by guitarist Yasuharu Tanaka with lyrics by Fubito Endo, who also recently worked with Japanese heavy metal legends Anthem. The track is taken from the forthcoming worldwide release Bystander Effect [Expanded Edition], coming to you via Sliptrick Records on March 13th.

Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-01-13 18:38 German Riffonauts BLACK SPACE RIDERS have released the official video for "Movements," a track from forthcoming album Amoretum Vol. 1. Amoretum Vol. 1 will be released on vinyl, CD, and digital formats on January 26.
The internationally acclaimed predecessor Refugeeum brought BLACK SPACE RIDERS renown with its mixture of thoughtful, sensitive themes and hard, atmospheric rock. Two years have passed since then, two years in which the world has not necessarily become a better place in the eyes of most people.
War, terror, displacement, destruction, rejection and nationalism dominate the headlines. Or, as a wise little green fellow once said: "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."
"All you need is love", countered the BEATLES in 1967. The response of BLACK SPACE RIDERS in 2018 is Amoretum, a made-up word comprising "amor" and "arboretum" to symbolize a protective garden and a germ seed of love. And so the new song cycle of BLACK SPACE RIDERS is all about the conflict between fear-hate-rejection-darkness on the one hand, and love-empathy-care-light on the other. For, how else should we overcome hate, if not with love?
Musically, this conflict is consistently put into practice by a band that beats its own path and is constantly developing. The electronic experiments of the Beyond Regugeeum EP of 2016 have been reduced sonically and cleverly integrated into the powerfully sounding songs. Between fat, dirty riffs and trippy delays, everything that sounds good is allowed; the album is interspersed with a flowing groove throughout and an ever-present atmosphere that embraces the listener. Heavy, sometimes proggy, often psychedelic, always engaging and almost catchy and danceable, AmoretumVol. 1 takes us by the hand, shows us the dark side, and then wants to give us the hope back that we so often painfully miss.
The album flows from song to song as if from a single cast. The listener wonders after 45 minutes whether everything is really already over, and wants to go back to the beginning again immediately.
But of course everything is not over after 45 minutes in the world of BLACK SPACE RIDERS. The band also announces a second chapter for 2018 ... Amoretum Vol. 2 is waiting for us, while we are looking forward to Amoretum Vol 1.
Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-01-13 18:33 German instrumental rock powerhouse Long Distance Calling recently announced the release of their sixth studio album ‘Boundless’ for 2nd February 2018. Following the release of the album’s first single ‘Out There’, they are now pleased to reveal the video for the next single ‘Ascending’.
The band comments: “We proudly present the brand new video clip for our second single ‘ASCENDING’ which we shot in the studio, where we recorded ‘BOUNDLESS’.
We caught an intimate yet intense atmosphere, and we are happy to share it with you, enjoy!”
Following the release of two albums that saw the band exploring the addition of vocals to their sound, the band have gone back to basics and created a purely instrumental record.
The band comments: “We are happy to announce our new album ‘BOUNDLESS’ which will see the light of day on February 2nd 2018. This time around the four of us locked ourselves in a room over a couple of months and pretty much got back to where we started as a band to catch this “go with the flow” feeling. This is probably the purest LDC album ever, no guests, no vocals, all instrumental. We´re stoked how it turned out and this album got a lot of energy, heaviness, melodies and twists, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.”
