Swedish Atmospheric Blackened death metal Nox Vorago released the album in February 26th 2017. One thing I can say, about this release is, that is has some unusual crazy vibe to it, inspiration for the music is just great, so this is some awesome evil metal album.

The influences of melodic, symphonic and atmospheric music made this album sinister and powerful, all of this made the songs very intensive, interesting, and dramatic. Blackened death metal part of music, has that magical hypnotic effect, that will totaly take over the mind of the listener.

Vocalist J.N Ûduun is amazing, his vocals remaind me of Nergal the vocalist of Legendary Polish Blackened death metal band Behemoth, which is such a awesome thing, it gaves this album, a new impact on the atmosphere.

Raw brutal vocals, demonstrated the power that vocals, can brought out in every way, also it is very import thing to the whole process of creating a good album. His high scream vocal is unigue as well, as the raw deep vocal, it showes that he brought out the best of himself, and gave this album his charm.

Powerful crushing riffs with atmospheric melodic symphonic music, will for sure show you some amazing tehnical skills, combined with some dark melodic music, it’s a masterpiace of destruction, production is so good ,that you can here every tone and melody in a right moment in each song.

This hole album sounds like a theater performance, each song has a part in a performance. Acoustics had improved this kind of enjoyment in a right way.

There are in some moment’s on the album that have a generic sound, that is maybe a bad thing, but it’s not a big deal, because the hole album is such a unigue brutal piece of art.

Nox Vorago is a band, that you can need to listen a few times, just to understand a complete concept of thier work, once you understand it, you must love it, it’s something that can not be said by words, it can only be felt. With this amazing aprrouch to metal music, this band is going to be a force of evil, that must not be played with.

The Sludgelord Premiere SLAGDUSTER’s ”Peeping Ron” song, and new album ”Deadweight” Out May 5th!

Isolation has most certainly bred inspiration in the shape of SLAGDUSTER. Hailing from Grand Forks, B.C, the band is name after a slang term local to their area for a piece of machinery that was used in the mines over a hundred years ago.

“We are the only four musicians in our small town driven to form a progressive metal band.” says vocalist Shane Sherman.

Inspired by such giants as Goijira. Sikth, Meshuggah, Dillinger Escape Plan, Between The Buried And Me,SLAGDUSTER offer a progressive, groovy, creative, unique and heavy sound.

It’s been a few years since their debut album ”Nature.Humanity.Machine”and SLAGDUSTER is ready to unleash their follow up ‘Deadweight’ due out on May 5th, 2017.

“Naturally our sound has come a long way since our debut release in 2010. The music is more complex, and much more developed, still heavy, but even more groove based. Listeners can expect to be challenged by focusing on the compositions, or lost in the musical landscape.” says vocalist Shane Sherman.

Teaming up with TheSludgelord, SLAGDUSTER is giving fans a taste of what’s to come off ‘Deadweight’ with the exclusive premiere of their first single ‘Peeping Ron’.

The band comments:

‘Peeping Ron’ encompasses many aspects of our upcoming album ‘Deadweight’. Grooved rhythm, technical riffing, odd time signatures and pummeling vocals are layered over complex drum work seems to be constant theme on this record. Enjoy!”

Listen to ‘Peeping Ron’ by visiting the following link: http://thesludgelord.blogspot.ca/2017/03/track-premiere-slabduster-deliver.html 

Like the ancient machine they are named after, SLAGDUSTER work hard to draw art from base material, they’re sound is meticulous and lengthy. All nine of tracks on ‘Deadweight’ have been very slowly and carefully crafted over the years. No songs were scrapped; all were completely revamped continuously for years. SLAGDUSTER put way more effort into collaborative song writing, which has significantly advanced their original sound. Each track contains a variety of things, ranging from ripping riffs and tremolo melodies to soft transitional parts and psychedelic interludes on top of constant heaviness and groove.

Of course, these songs are transformed in SLAGDUSTER’s live show, which vocalist Shane Sherman describes as“high energy, bordering on ridiculous, with offensive banter and annoying antics from an attention hungry front man. Well executed yet fun and light-hearted performances perfected over years of touring.”

POEMISIA Announce New Bassist, Salvatore Talento!

Italy, Naples-based symphonic metallers POEMISIA have announced their new bass player, Salvatore Talento!

Statment of the band:

“Dear friends, It’s with a heavy heart that we must announce that our bassist Ciro is no longer part of the Poemisia family. After five long years together he leaves a big place to fill. Who knows us, knows that in our last show (Kiev) we had the honour to play with the great and talented Ukranian bassist Zlatoyar which we want to thank one more time. But now, my friends, it’s time to complete the family again. Therefore we have the pleasure to announce that we have already found another great musician which will step in and keep the show going on. A huge welcome in our family to Salvatore Talento which will rock the stage and the studio for our future projects!”

Сродна слика

The musical style of POEMISIA is focused on sounds which combine metal music to opera and symphonic elements. This duality leads to a tendency to mark the continuous conflict between darkness and light, between death and life, between Hell and Heaven, sometimes also in a peculiar grotesque way. This is fully reflected also in the lyrics which have always a refined nature. POEMISIA Live video from Moscow, supporting ELUVEITIE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=og1550eqeeM

About the Hirax:

HIRAX is an American thrash metal band beginning in 1984 under the leadership of vocalist Katon W. De Pena (founding member).  The band was an early example of the thrash metal, speed metal and crossover.  HIRAX is based in Los Angeles but, at that time, because of the weak metal scene in their area, they spent most of their time playing in San Francisco along with Slayer, Metallica, and Exodus, who were all part of the exciting new metal emerging from the Bay area. They released a four-song demo in 1984.  This demo was widely circulated and the band became known and respected worldwide through the metal tape trading underground.  Since then HIRAX has released  5 full length studio albums and multiple EPs and has toured the world including many festivals in South America, Europe, Japan, Scandinavia, and the U.S.A.
