The album was realized in the collaboration with an ensemble of 40 renowned musicians from the National Opera, the Athens State Orchestra, the Nerit Orchestra and the Piraeus Concert Band. Fallen Arise have shared the stage with Moonspell, Leaves’ Eyes, Outloud, as well as playing several shows in Greece.

DEAD ASYLUM Exclusive Album Stream of ”Death Always Wins” for free at Bravewords!

Death Always Wins, the forthcoming sophomore album from Melodic Death/Thrash quartet DEAD ASYLUM, is now streaming in its entirety, courtesy of Brave Words! Go forth and stream with impunity at this location.
DEAD ASYLUM will release ”Death Always Wins on June 2. On the follow-up to 2013 debut ”General Carnage, the Vancouver, Canada band has sharpened the songwriting to a fine point and bolstered its established muscular attack with a harder rhythmic punch and an even deadlier arsenal of riffs!
A lyric video for the new single is available now at https://youtu.be/kCQeUqu6ET4. The band previously released the official video for “Forgotten Sacrifice,” which can be viewed at this location.
With an unexpected combination of thrash and melodeath elements reminiscent of the Gothenburg Sound (AT THE GATES, ARCH ENEMY, et al), DEAD ASYLUM’s Death Always Wins is one killer listen!  The songs on Death Always Wins range from thrashy headbangers, to technical compositions, and chantable, heavy metal anthems. While it might seem like their sound covers the spectrum of metal, everything is tied together by brutal dual vocals and melodic leads. Lyrical themes include revolution and political uprising, the apocalypse, and-as the band name alludes-twisted facets of the human psyche. The band’s famously intense live shows are about to get fiercer when the new material is left beaten and bloodied on the stage!
Death Always Wins was tracked at Jam Factory Studios in Port Coquitlam, BC; recorded and edited by Roger Mowat; and mix/mastered by Chris Holmes.  Pierre-Alain (3mmi Design) was responsible for the album art.

Drummer Samantha Landa in many ways defines DEAD ASYLUM’s unbridled energy and inability to ever just stand still. Landa performed with Brazilian Thrashers and Napalm Records artist NERVOSA for three months throughout North America and Europe in 2016, including on a tour package that also featured DESTRUCTION, FLOTSAM & JETSAM, and ENFORCER. And all the while ran her online business from the road! Landa even served as a Pool Girl on the annual 70000 Tons of Metal cruise.
DEAD ASYLUM will hit the road for the “American SaniTOURium” Tour, beginning in August. Confirmed dates thus far can be found below.
Dead Asylum is:
Mike Lister – Vocals/Rhythm Guitar
Roger Mowat – Vocals/Bass
Eric Morrison – Lead Guitar
Samantha Landa – Drums

Ministry is going to held a concert in Belgrade after nine years, after farewell tour!

One of the most important  industrial metal bands of all time Ministry from Chicago, will held a concert on Sunday June 4th, in Barutana at Kalemegdan.

Thier  stage performance has a high energy level, that reaches the audience, creating a great atmosphere, but the same thing can be also excepted in Belgrade.

Приказује се 0406-ministry-fb-cover-03 (1).png

They were established in Chicago in 1981, in their  earlier carrer they were a sythpop band. Already with the second release ” Twitch ” of 1986, and especially with the album ” The Land of Rape and Honey ”  they changed their  style of music and became pioneers of industrial metal. It was a reversal of the sound by which they became famous in music history.

Приказује се Ministry Promo pic 2017.jpeg

In the early nineties, the band experienced a global breakthrough, and a huge commercial success with the album ” Psalm 69: The Way To Succeed And The Way To Suck Eggs” with the song  ”Jesus Build My Hotrod ”, considered to be the most important song for the  industrial metal music. The album sold two million copies, and the band secured a place on the Lollapalooza tour, and opened the way to this  to mainstream path, their role models are Marlilyn Manson and Rammstein.

During the decade the group has passed a lot of musicians, the only original member of the Al Jourgesen, one of the legendary figure of alternative scene in the nineties

For the Ministry it can be said that they are a combination between alternative rock, punk with  industrial sound.

Although it was believed that thier first and last time in Serbia on the Main Stage Exit Festival 2008, will be the last tour of  Ministry, and they also announced that they are on their last tour, the band regrouped in 2012. A year later, they released the album ” From Beer To Eternity ”, which is dedicated to the guitarist Mike Scacco.

Tickets for the Belgrade concert of Ministry, in the production of ” Strange Fear ”, and the tickets are available from Monday  March 20th, and they can be purchased on Eventim servis, price of the ticket is 2,490 dinars.

South Africa’s DISPLEASED DISFIGUREMENT To Release ‘Origin Of Abhorrence’ Album; ‘Malignant Misery’ Single Streaming!

South African slam lords DISPLEASED DISFIGUREMENT are about to change the landscape of brutal death metal forever. Mark your calendars for June 9th ,that date will go down in history as the day the earth crumbled beneath the crushing surge of slam known as ”Origin Of Abhorrence”.

Formed way back in 2001 with original members Darius Wilken and Nick Louverdis, the guys played numerous shows around South Africa, spewing a more primitive, traditional death metal sound.

After several successful years in the underground, in 2013 the band released their critically-acclaimed masterpiece of slam, entitled ‘‘Extermination Process”. Riding a tsunami of slam for the next couple of years, where they garnered many favorable reviews, the band then parted ways with founding member Nick in 2015.

With the search for a suitable replacement as priority one, the guys came across Riian Els (ex-Bile Of Man, ex-Funeral God). With the lineup complete, the band commenced writing for what would become their much more brutal and slammerific sophomore effort, ”Origin Of Abhorrence”.

Hickory, N.C. sci-fi metal band RAPHEUMETS WELL (Ra-few-mets) has teamed with MetalUnderground.comfor the premiere of their new album “Enders Doors” out now via Test Your Metal Records. Once againRAPHEUMETS WELL brings forth a voyage enriched with lore and a sound that is a complex mix of classical orchestrations, cosmic synths, and extreme metal to portray the epics of parallel worlds.

The synopsis of this next album “Enders Door” is in the fifth era of the Avomenian Empire, amidst the planetary ruins of Vaath, a rogue traveler would discover an artifact that would forever change his place in the cosmos. Upon arriving to retrieve the artifact, it became apparent that Eryos’s brother Nathyiem would never make it to their arranged meeting point.  In departing from the planet Vaath, Eryos received a distress signal from his brother’s ship, coming from an uncharted planet.  Upon arriving, he found a odd world inhabited by a mysterious species called the Dreth led by lecherous matriarch named Eishar.  It is here that he would uncover a faced-door, an inter-dimensional gateway to the Ender.

Inspired by the fictitious universe of Sovael, RAPHEUMETS WELL is the name coined to the conscious deity who oversees the anastomosis of the multiverse, the master of portals and inter-dimensional travel.  Being personified as a trickster, Rapheumet often creates chaos for unsuspecting voyagers.  The word “Well” refers to the gravity wells, which like black holes, are catalyst of change and gateways between the cosmic plains.

Formed in 2008, 2011 and 2012 saw their first two demos followed by their first self release full length ‘Dimensions’unleashed in 2014 that progressively told a larger story portrayed in a complex saga of Atai (ancient architects) who aid in the propagation of sentient life throughout the multi-verse. In 2016, they released their highly praised sophomore album ‘The Exile’ via Test Your Metal Records.

Now in 2017, from the birth of organic matter to great wars that tear the fabric of space/time, the story of RAPHEUMETS WELL‘s music serves to immerse you into a world of oddities once again with the band’s third release‘Enders Door’ due out on May 26th via Test Your Metal Records.
