Eastern European-Inspired Blackened Folk Metallers TSAR STANGRA are going to release Debut Album in May 26th, Their song from the upcoming album is available for Streaming!

By way of Quebec comes a unique blend of Eastern European-inspired black metal and Bulgarian folk music, presented in the form of Цар Стангра (TSAR STANGRA). Driven by complex songs, exotic rhythms, and multiple orchestrations, the music is as diverse and refined as the culture in which it represents.

With the impending release of their debut album ”Небесният ковач (Celestial Forger), set to drop on May 26th, the band has taken great care to deliver a mosaic of melodic music that blends mysticism with uncommon elements found in today’s pagan/folk black metal scene. Inspired by the expertise of such legends as Negură Bunget, Drudkh, Rotting Christ, and Nokturnal Mortum, each and every song is then localized utilizing typical Bulgarian rhythms and harmonies.

In an effort to traverse the realms of extremity, ”Небесният ковач(Celestial Forger) ends with an epic 14-minute song where only terrestial confines are the limit. In this composition, a canon of real pipe organ and lead guitar blends with blast beats and an Emperor-type of riffing. As the journey continues, the song evolves into epic death metal riffing, ending with a classic Bulgarian melody arranged as a military march. Each and every song is an exposition of ancient poetries from Bulgarian literature.

TRACKLISTING:
1. Небесният ковач (Celestial Forger)
2. Обесването на Васил Левски (The Hanging of Vasil Levski)
3. Сънят на героя (The Dream of the Hero)
4. На прощаване (At Farewell)
5. Да, близък е краят (Yes, the End is Near)
6. Опълченците на Шипка (The Volunteers of Shipka)

CREDITS:
Antoine Baril – Balalaika, additional keyboards/orchestrations,
additional bass, additional guitars.
Karina Charbonnier – Female vocal
Maxime Mlynarczyk (Morgue) – Male vocal
Louis-Olivier Brassard Gélinas (Endless Horizon, Dépérir, Hak-Ed-Damm) – Male vocal

Athanasia Release Official Music Video for “White Horse,” Off of Upcoming, Full-Length LP!

Metal band Athanasia have released the official music video for their track “White Horse” off of their upcoming album ”The Order of the Silver Compass. Originally Premiered on Tattoo.com, “White Horse” was directed by Matt Zane and is the third single off of their upcoming full length album, The Order of the Silver Compass.

Statment of the band:

”White Horse was written after watching too many of our friends and family members getting sucked into the vacuum of substance abuse and spat out as a shell of who they once were. This song is for anybody who’s ever lost somebody to addiction.”

About the band:

ATHANASIA are a power trio playing an original hybrid of classic arena/ black/thrash metal styles. The band was founded by Caleb Bingham in 2004 under the name ASCENSION. As a result of passing around the band’s early demos on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, he landed a gig with the then newly formed FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH in 2005. Upon being released from the group in 2007 due to his young age, he continued to write under the name ASCENSION, recording several more unreleased demos and one EP at the behest of veteran Roadrunner Records A&R Monte Conner. Largely due to that label’s merger with WMG, negotiations broke down and the band was shelved again in 2010 while Bingham played with Swedish death metal act ZONARIA for 4 years. Upon parting ways with ZONARIA due to a leg injury sustained while playing with the group, Caleb decided to put all his efforts back into what he worked so hard to create…

Header 01

Joined by bassist Brandon Miller and veteran drummer Jason West (MURDERDOLLS, WEDNESDAY 13, MURDER FM), Caleb Bingham resurrected the band under the name, ATHANASIA, recording its first full-length release entitled The Order of the Silver Compass. The album is complete and the band are now ready to take their unique blend of Heavy Metal all over the globe!!!

The pre-order of thier album can be done here, at this link: http://www.theorderofthesilvercompass.com/
