Heimdalls Wacht @ Black Skull Records
ur partner label BLACK SKULL RECORDS will release the upcoming new album from germanys Black Metal Band HEIMDALLS WACHT !!
Heimdalls Wacht is the sound and the fury of our present era, reproaching the modern world in its pervasive conformity and mindless stupidity. Clamoring wrath! Shrieking desperation! Sonic weltschmerz! Withdrawn melancholy! Heimdalls Wacht’s music, lyrics, and overall concept provide an outlet for a deep-rooted uneasiness, a discomfort in the face of an empty zeitgeist and the monotony of the masses, treating with contempt today’s consumer society that venerates hollow idols and cannot grasp true spiritual richness.
Heimdalls Wacht’s lyrical concept is thus of the utmost importance to the band – and to be sure, so is the music, which comes along in a most distinctive and expressive blend: on the basis of raw and at the same time melancholic and melodic Black Metal, a number of stylistic influences have entered the sound throughout the years, from Folk and Doom, via progressive and melodic Classic Metal, through Thrash and Death Metal. This unique approach has earned the group a great many loyal fans from countries as diverse as France and Russia, or Canada and Italy, who never cease to travel long distances in order to see the band perform on stage. Despite being under-represented in the media (a partly self-chosen move) and ignored by the mainstream, Heimdalls Wacht has sold thousands of CD’s, cassette tapes, and vinyl records, as well as loads of further merchandise articles. This is remarkable due to the fact that Heimdalls Wacht consequently misses nowadays seemingly necessary aspects to get a bigger audience and reputation: they are lacking the zeitgeist to present well produced computer generated sounds, the "professional" delusion of perfectionism and the superficiality that seems to be a trademark of todays scene. Nevertheless: the band has played a good deal of major concerts and co-headlined festivals alongside such Black Metal masters as Lord Belial, Marduk, Ancient Rites, and many more.
The forthcoming album “Ut de graute olle Tied (Deel II) – Land der Nebel” (the title reflects Heimdalls Wacht’s identification with the Westphalian Münsterland vernacular) constitutes a preliminary culmination point within the band’s extensive discography. This is because of the unheared mixture of musical styles and emotions which always starts on the basis of old school black metal which can be heard with influences of diverse genres such as mentioned above.

Istapp - Frostbiten
holeheartedly set to Frost! „Icicle“ is the translation of the band‘s name. A damn right choice. Ever since the founding in 2005 in the South East of Sweden is all about deepest chilling and darkest interests. Once, planet earth was covered in snow, ice and glaciers. Then the foul solar depending creatures swarmed the earth with its repulsive existence. Now it is time to reverse the process and recreate Snowball Earth...
Release date: 07.08.2014 by Trollzorn Records
ISTAPP finally presents an antidote for the sun and its worshippers entitled „Frostbiten“. And these fully uncompromising Northmen from Mjövik out of the local Blekinge County return finally with another brilliant masterpiece of noble Melodic Black Metal. Since the 2010 debut full-length, the stunning original „Blekinge“, the Swedes let wait their supercooled followers on a new icy revelation. And the new light-eaters manifesto „Frostbiten“ shows all the invested dedication, passion, fervor and obsession edifying significantly. Ten perfectly sophisticated sun-killers were composed with gigantic assiduity. Ten black shining numbers thus which are all for the most exciting kind of Melodic Black Metal. The inherent tendency to craft perfection one can hear and feel almost every second on „Frostbiten“, which is to experience in breathtaking manner. Band founder and exceptional talent Fjalar shows once again with full force to which outstanding championship he's capable of. The multi-instrumentalist and clear-vocalist of ISTAPP currently demotes the most out of this area smooth for irrelevance, one might think. Along with the new and multiple capable singer Isar, Fjalar celebrates majestic uplifting Scandinavian art. Deeply haunting sounds have emerged that also frantically stir the mind how they can inspire the soul blissfully. Because the impetuous wildness of the songs on „Frostbiten“ just is not tame, while the whole thing correlates with highly melodic aesthetics strikingly harmonious. What a powerful recipe! The well-known trademark of ISTAPP gets fully explored of course once more: so the groovy instrumentation is thundering temporarily in compact combination with evocative beguiling clear vocals of Fjalar. Unique. Sometimes their illustrious winter lecture is refined again with dreamy atmospheric keyboard interludes. With the latter ISTAPP achieve an absolutely fabulous wealth of contrast to quirkiest, technically flawless made Riff patterns and unspeakably frenetically beaten drum rolls. 100 % ISTAPP. And therefore 100 % quality. Stronger than ever, Fjalar and Isar bring forth the Absolute Zero and march for the final extermination of the burning star. Join forces and die a honourable death or prepare yourselves for eternal torment. And join the unstoppable hypothermia!

New Ragnaröek album in july 2015
n echo comes out of the fog, a burst out of burning arrows. The waiting Herold on the shore to the rough see…He knows that he is not a pedant. No, battle-tested knaves captured a lot of booty.
RAGNARÖEK comes back from an epic wayfare to pick up all listeners to the next journey. This trip will go from this mortal world into a world of lost souls, through worst taverns, beds of predatory princesses and up to the stairway to heaven to give them hell while the devils is looking slobbering to his balls. After a ten years hike DORNING is the third silverling coming out of band of chumminess. Old myths merge with powerful brew to the 13 latest songs. The stories tell from the enormous hunger and fight of live which breaks hearts and screams in pleasure. Narrated stories with raspy voice accentuated by steel-hard guitars and heavy drums. With the sweetness of themedieval thunder bag a high water of pure joy of playing comes up. Serious waggishness spread over the darkest recesses and fellows will recognize the new-born opus of the hard rocking band – DORNING appears musically and lyrically grown without missing the tried and trusted. So lay back, close your eyes and open your ears. Welcome to the DORNING’-world – climb aboard and join us for a great cruise!!!

Skiltron – re-issues (2015)
rgentina’s Skiltron have reissued their first 3 albums with bonus material on each album. Now, if you don’t have a least one Skiltron album in your collection already then what have you been doing? They are probably the biggest folk metal band from South America and have churned out 4 amazing folk metal albums releases over their 10+ year history. With some major festivals shows this summer (most notably Wacken) this is the perfect time for you to pick up these gems before you go see them if you don’t already own them. Each album has at least 5 bonus songs, either being demo or live versions of songs or a couple of covers (“The Ballad Of William Kidd” by Running Wild and “Spinning Jenny” by Skyclad) With a major Scottish/Celtic influence, Skiltron use the pipes and whistle better than most bands, even ones from the UK and Ireland. They tend to have songs that are anthems and get the crowd going for sure….upbeat battle songs with a power metal feel….think folk metal versions of Hammerfall or Lost Horizon come to mind. The live tracks do show how tight a band they are live...

Obscurity - Vintar
ermanys most popular Viking/Death Metal Band Obscurity will soon release their 7th full-length album entitled “Vintar“. It will be released through Trollzorn / SMP Records at 28.11.2014.
“Vintar” consists of the Scandinavian word for winter (vinter) and the old German word (wintar). It is a symbolism of the union of all Germanic peoples. “Vintar” was recorded, mixed and mastered at the “4CN-Studios” by Tim Schuldt. Obscurity have just revealed the album tracklist, the beautiful cover artwork by Jan Yrlund “Darkgrove” and a few words about the lyrics. “Vintar” features a lyrical concept, based on Nordic mythology, a fictional lore after Ragnaroek. In the ancient times of Old-Midgard former legislation is repealed, many peoples are afflicted and subjugated, only a few have actually survived the Twilight of the Gods. The core of Vintar’s tales, narrated by a long-serving warrior, is the new continent “Wodanheim”. On their search for a safe haven, this is where the surviving peoples find a new place to live. Geographically Wodanheim is located in the heart of nowadays Europe, its center being the “Bergisch Land”. The strong force in Wodanheim are the diehard and stubborn Tenkterer. It is their main intention to unite the surviving peoples, to build up a new efficient cultural community, based on Germanic substructures – a new Germanic alliance. Banded together through the resistance against destructive external influences, the fight against the “enemies”, who regard Wodanheim as a thorn in their side, an unbearable burden, because: not only the alleged “good” has survived Ragnaroek…
01. Schicksal der Götter / 02. Naglfar / 03. Nebelwelt / 04. Wodanheim
05. Alter Feind / 06. Vintar / 07. Dominium / 08. Alte Zeichen
09. Sieg oder Niedergang / 10. Feld der Ehre / 11. Legiones Montium

Nothgard CD release coming soon!
ere are the first details of the upcoming new album "AGE OF PANDORA" from germanys Melodic Death Metal Band NOTHGARD:
NOTHGARD is a German Epic Melodic Death Metal Band. (Vocalist & Lead-Guitarist Dom R. Crey recently joined German top-notch Epic Metal act EQUILIBRIUM !) Their 2nd full-length "Age Of Pandora" will be released at Sept., 12.!!! With their new and second album "Age Of Pandora" NOTHGARD is heading straight towards to originality, technical finesse and maturity. The outstanding formation stands out for 3 technical guitars and epic orchestral parts combined with influences of Folk, Classic, Melo-Death and Hard Rock. "With 'Age Of Pandora' we've made, what we haven't reached with it's album predecessor. Aggression combined with harmony, technical parts combined with silent nuanced, more emotional, orchestral passages. Even on lyrical level I'm very satisfied this time. There are no clichés at all on these new album, but true real-life topics and very own feelings, which have a deep meaning for me and the band.
Simply perfect for our fans to get eventually 'lyrical mirrored' so to say." (Dom R. Crey) In April 2011 NOTHGARD has released their debut album called "Warhorns Of Midgard", which received rave reviews. In the same month they performed their first European tour together with Skyforger, Heljareyga, Gernotshagen, Kromlek and Northland. 2012 Skaahl of the mighty WOLFCHANT joined NOTHGARD as their 3rd guitarist. Since then the line-up is constant and stronger than ever. The new material of NOTHGARD will be bombastic, epic and very technical simply because all three guitars establish a new way of a harmonic interplay between rhythm and double-leads. Beside this "Guitar-Orchestra" the orchestra parts of the keys ensure pure epicness and heroic power all along the line.
