Apostle of Solitude Release New Streaming Off Upcoming Album

AoS_flyer

Apostle of Solitude  today presents the second track off their forthcoming album “Of Woe And Wounds”, to be released  by Cruz Del Sur Music on Oct 31 (Europe) and Nov 4 (USA).

Listen to “Whore’s Wings” on Cruz Del Sur Music’s Bandcamp here

Previously demoed on Bandcamp, Reverbnation and similar sites,  “Whore’s Wings” has been completely re-recorded for the new album. The track shows a more dynamic and aggressive side of Apostle of Solitude’s sound, and together with the previously released track “Luna”, gives a better idea of what to expect from “Of Woe and Wounds”. Unlike many doom bands, Apostle of Solitude in fact prefers using a multifaceted approach which mixes their trademark granitic, oppressive sound with many other elements of traditional metal. In other words, you won’t just be doomed by Apostle of Solitude!

DARKEST ERA RELEASE LYRIC VIDEO FOR NEW SONG SORROW’S BOUNDLESS REALM

Northern Ireland’s Darkest Era have released a lyric video for ‘Sorrow’s Boundless Realm,’ the first track from the band’s forthcoming new album ‘Severance’ which is due for release on June 3rd (US) and June 13th (Europe) via Cruz Del Sur.

Guitarist Ade Mulgrew said: “It’s quite a dark song and probably reflective of how some of us saw the world around us when this album was being written. There was a lot going on in the band at the time and it certainly came out in the music. We also recorded it in the middle of winter against a backdrop that moved from being immensely beautiful on the rare occasions when the sun shined, to very bleak and desolate when the clouds rolled in. That definitely helped shape the vibe on this song. We’re looking forward to letting people finally hear it.

‘Severance’ will be released on June 13th in Europe and June 3rd in the US on Compact Disc/ Vinyl / Digital.

The track listing is as follows:
1.Sorrow’s Boundless Realm

2.Songs Of Gods And Men

3.The Serpent And The Shadow

4.Beyond The Grey Veil

5.Trapped In The Hourglass

6.The Scavenger

7.A Thousand Screaming Souls

8.Blood, Sand And Stone

DARK FOREST “The Awakening” PRE-ORDERS and VIDEO Song Preview

DARK FOREST‘s third album “The Awakening” will be released on February 28th in Europe and March 6th in the USA, and so far it has been very well-welcomed by the Metal press.

To convince you that this album is rightly been regarded as “one of the best heavy metal releases of early 2014”,  the band has released a videoclip of their new anthem “Sons of England” (without doubt, one of the most memorable songs amongst “The Awakening”‘s setlist). Watch the video here:


 

These are some of the European press’ comments:

“Ein stimmiges Album.” (Time for Metal, D)

“Dark Forest levert met ‘The Awakening’ een cd af met 9 sterke heavymetalnummers en een die makkelijk mee kan met de top van de heavy metal. Goede plaat!” (White Room Reviews, NL)

“The Awakening” is one of the first real heavy metal highlights of 2014. Please let there be many more!” (Metal Squadron, N)

“Das dritte Album der von Hingabe beseelten Briten, die ihre Band 2002 gründeten. Epischer und melodischer Heavy Metal, zuweilen nahe dran am Power Metal. Mit visionär-verträumter Aura!” (EMP, D)

“Ein wahres Jahreshighlight, das von Mal zu Mal stärker in den Ohren knallt und jeden Liebhaber epischen True Metals zum Jauchzen bringen wird.” (Stormbringer.at, AT)

“Ein klassisches Metal-Album mit leicht epischem Charakter.” (Legacy, D)

“Traditioneller Heavy Metal mit viel Melodie und einigen frühen Speed-Elementen.” (Bleeding4Metal)
