The official release date of the new album "Elderslied" is scheduled for Dec. 24, 2014, which becomes a public holiday so to say for all followers of epic and melodic Viking Metal simply shorthanded through the formation. Who needs despicable Christmas when INCURSED can be enjoyed there?

Straight in the face of society!

True believers know it well:
So many fine pronouncements.
So rarely fine deeds.
Mankind truly seems lost on morally levels.

PREMORTAL BREATH don't want to be a part of these shameful emotional decay, as they show with their official videoclip:

The special HEAVY METAL output of these wholeheartedly condemning accusers from Germany should concern!

Their debut album "They" isn't made for simple minds:

In 2010 Tommy (vocals) and Potti (drums) decided to grab the bull by the horns. They wanted to start a fresh-sounding, heavy, yet melodic Metal band – and the idea of PREMORTAL BREATH has been realized in powerful manner:

METALMESSAGE recently joined the iron thinking five-piece for global promotion of their debut longplayer "They".

Devouring depths of gloomy moods

MELKOR was founded in the beginning of 2004, rising from the ashes of two-men-project Kheled-Zarâm.

„Irrlicht“ is scheduled for Dezember 12, 2014 and celebrates the 10th anniversary of the project with 8 carefully chosen songs that, as results of a long maturing process, get to the heart of MELKOR's very essence. Not unlike the first demo, Patrick recorded and engineered this work almost entirely on his own.

„Irrlicht“ offers a heavy and abyssic kind of passionate ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL:

Mainman Patrick, known (as a live guitarist) to insiders of German Black Metal acts NOCTE OBDUCTA and AGRYPNIE, presents his new songs with full devotion.

MELKOR has a tangible surface, offers melodies, stories, rhymes, and yet is ambivalent and permeated by metaphors.

The project enters the maelstrom of the depths and stares into the abyss, gives the listener presentiments of the enigmatic workings of powers that consume all existence and at the same time make it blossom.

The purpose is not to glorify, but to preserve an unflinching view at the splendor of destruction and the temptation of poison. No satan, no other gods inhabit the world that the music and lyrics of MELKOR try to approach in a respectful and yet passionately entangled manner – a blind behemoth, a blaze in the dark, beautiful and terrifying, cold and hot,black, white and grey.

METALMESSAGE promotes the new album of this capable Black Metal true-believer from Frankfurt very timely:
at winter!

"…another great sounding album from Melkor and if you are a fan of atmospheric Black Metal, you should check out this recording."
(Occult Black Metal)

"We are very satisfied and it's hard to forget the whole rhythm of the album entitled ' Irrlicht ', because for us, the album was born not only gives the thick darkness, gloom, sadness and moodiness, but appears as the creator of the black illusions that emerged from the right-brain, which difficult removed and kept settles to the spine. It is very tasty, and 'Irrlicht' expresses the authenticity of black metal in depth without hurting the black norms."

"DISSORTED seems as if it was costumed-built for those who simply love the classic Thrash and the Bay Area scene of old! If you haven't gone into a full-out rage in awhile then "I" will have you thrashing like a maniac like it was 1980 something all over again!"
(Heavy Metal Time Machine)

"We all hope this could be the beginning of a very promising band. This first EP is an excellent cover letter of DISSORTED!"

Save your breath … for RUNNING DEATH!

Bavarian THRASH METAL masterminds RUNNING DEATH currently putting all their love, sweat and tears into writing their upcoming debut album.

The record is to be released late 2014 und RUNNING DEATH will for sure gain a lot of prompt attention - from more than just fans of their genre. What we've seen so far makes us expect nothing less than a thrash metal sensation!!!

The band was founded 2004 and has from the beginning always been looking for quality, diversity and a completely unique style.

Exploring their own ground is what keeps the musicians around founder, guitarist and singer Simon Bihlmayer awake at night.

You're way more likely to hear stomping heavy metal riffs paired with unorthodoxically arranged razor sharp trash riffs ... than all the things you've already heard so often and really have grown weary of!

Celebrating wide diversity and integrating an extraordinarily ambitionated reinterpretation of 80s flair, the four metier maniacs invite you to a journey through their wonderfully catchy and powerful songs.

All those factors combined create such an unique and ever exciting soundscape, that many kinds of Metal and even Rock heads will find their itch for genuinely good music scratched!

DEADY is here…

"This is a great E.P with 5 strong thrash tracks that move like a whirlwind with lots of speedy riffs, good old fashion stomping rhythms see 'Call Of Extinction' … the songs have progressive tendencies as they move between different tempos on 'Celebrate Your Aggression' which has sounds remarkably similar to 'South Of Heaven' stylistically. Yet another German thrash band showing the yanks what for!"

"…Thrash that’s gripping. The tracks are well-produced, sounding full and balanced…"
(Metal Mellowdee)

"…their chosen style of thrash draws more from the American Metal scene (Megadeth, Testament, Metallica, Sacred Reich, Vio-lence, Exodus and Intruder and I.N.C.) then it does the German … they pull of a great Thrash Metal sound that is sorely missing in today's scene…"
(Heavy Metal Time Machine)

"…hits hard and heavy while delivering swift and smooth riffs, beats, and solos almost effortlessly. All the while it's easy to hear the emphatic passion that each member injects into their instrument and compositions. These characteristics couple pleasantly with the slightly grungy quality of the album's production to set it apart from the all too clean formulation and emotionlessness that is found in a lot of newer thrash records."
(Metal Archives)

"…melody in the guitars, precise drumming, tight musicianship and inventive time changes make for a solid sophomore effort that should be sampled at least once to determine if it speaks to you."
(Obscure Chaos)

Musically Zeitgeist

In the 1930s it was stated, Blues would be the dangerous work of the Devil.
In the 1940s it was stated, Jazz & Swing were frightening excesses of the Devil.
In the 1950s it was stated, Rock'n'Roll would be the evil sound of the Devil.
In the 1960s it was stated, Beat would be the unpure music of the Devil.
In the 1970s it was stated, Rock music would be the corrupting sound of the Devil.
Well, and since the 1980s it was stated, Heavy Metal would be a diabolic spawn of the Devil.

What the much-reviled one heard in earlier centuries, is not officially known.
In any case, it seems clear that the ever pert bloke became really pretty musically, specifically over the last ten decades…
