Blackened death/thrash unit Voidhanger have contributed 3 brand new slices of brutality to an upcoming split with fellow miscreants Witchmaster. The collaboration is called Razing the Shrines of Optimism and it hit the streets in December via the Third Eye Temple label.
We here at Geeks of Doom are proud to be able to present to you, on this Black Metal Friday, an exclusive stream of the closing track of Voidhanger’s side of the album. This is “Through the Holocaust of Optimism.” Crank it up and enjoy.
Terra is a three-piece, atmospheric, black metal band hailing from Cambridge, England. Their sound, while unique in its own right, is also reminiscent of bands like Wolves In The Throne Room, Ash Borer, and Alter of Plagues. Their 2015 self-titled debut album was met by widespread critical praise, landing them on many critics’ year end “best of” lists.
Now Terra is set to release its highly anticipated follow-up and, let me tell you, I’ve heard it and there is definitely no sophomore slump here! The record is titled Mors Secunda and it hits the streets next Friday December 9, 2016.
We here at GoD are very proud to present a sneak peak at the record right here below in the form of the track “Apotheosis.”
Why on Earth is GoD featuring aMetallica video for Black Metal Friday, you ask? Well, just two days ago, the trash metal legends released videos for all 13 tracks from their highly anticipated tenth studio album Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, which is available worldwide today, November 18, 2016, via the band’s own Blackened Recordings label.
One of those clips was for the song “ManUNkind” and featured a group of actors performing onstage in corpse paint and bearing a striking resemblance to the notorious Norwegian band Mayhem. I had commented in my review of Hardwired… To Self-Destruct yesterday that I thought it was just Metallica’s way of trolling the metal trolls. Well, it turns out that it is actually our first look at Lords Of Chaos, the upcoming feature film following the almost surreal saga of Mayhem.
November 1, 2016 marked the 34th anniversary of one of the most important records in the history of extreme music. Way back in 1982, a band from Newcastle, England unleashed their second album on an unsuspecting public and things would never be the same for heavy metal. The band was Venom and the album was called Black Metal.
It was a landmark release in many respects in that it would serve as the aesthetic blueprint for a variety of extreme genres such as thrash, death metal, and, of course, black metal. From a musical standpoint the record has more in common with thrash than modern black metal. Regardless, many people believe it to be the seed from which all that would follow across the spectrum of extreme metal was germinated.
Norwegian black/viking metal lords Uburen are set to return on October 31, 2016 with the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2014 album Withered Roots. The new offering is entitled Fra Doden Fodes Liv and comes courtesy of the Via Noctura label.
We here at Geeks of Doom are proud to present the exclusive world premiere of Fra Doden Fodes Liv in the form of the album stream here below.
