“Memory of a Sapphire quickly became a favorite for us in the studio- it’s poppy and melody-oriented, which makes it a lot of fun to play live. Spotlighting Mr. Chris Amott’s guitar artistry on it adds a whole new level of zing, and as it really represents our sound most completely, it all seemed very natural to make it the first music video for the album.”

Divinity, based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, started in 1997 and began playing live shows in 1999. In 2001, the band released its first EP album called “Intensify” which received a lot of local (Canadian) praise after sending in a couple songs to BWBK’s ‘Knuckletrack‘ CD sampler. A music video was released for the song “World of Pain” in 2003 and the band played local shows building its show experience.

Fast forward to 2007, Divinity independently releases their first full-length album called “Allegory” and is picked up by Nuclear Blast Records just 3 months after the independent release. Obviously, this was a major turning point for the band!

In 2008, Divinity took on its first major tour by joining the Summer Slaughter Canada tour. This gave them the opportunity to connect to high-calibre booking agents and other acts such as Dying Fetus, Whitechapel, and Necrophagist.

In 2009, Divinity spent it’s time creating their 2nd full-length album, called “The Singularity” which was released under Candlelight Records with a very positive response from numerous reviewers and listeners.

Since the release of ”The Singularity ”, Divinity has toured Canada numerous times over and has received massive support and praise from around the world.

The band is currently releasing a trilogy EP concept album now turned into a full-length LP, called ”The Immortalist” available May 26th, 2017 at all digital music stores and as a special limited run CD Digipak.

Nordheim Launch Indiegogo For “RapThor”, An Album About Bacon And Dinosaurs!

Influenced by bands such as Finntroll, Ensiferum, Kalmah and Wintersun

Quebec folk metal Nordheim have launched an indiegogo campaign for their forthcoming album entitled “RapThor” to follow their two previous releases “Refill” (2013) and debut “Lost In The North” (2011). Featuring eight tracks with titles such as “Troll Riding A Raptor“, “Boobs And Bacon” and “Dragonthorn“, this third studio recording is dedicated to the epic flavour of bacon, the colossus power of dinosaurs and more.

The band stated this about their album:

“‘We want to give the fans one of the heaviest and nastiest folk metal albums to date with ‘RapThor’. It is different from our first two. We had great feedback when we played the songs live. This album is the heaviest of them all while cutting back on the European folklore influences. It’s the result of our hard work over the last few years. It is super-heavy party music!”

The band has also posted a video message for the campaign at

1. Troll Riding A Raptor
2. Boobs And Bacon
3. Scroll Of Lightning Bolt
4. Strength Became The Storm
5. I Wish You Were Beer
6. Black Witch Rises
7. Blood’s Shade
8. Dragonthorn
Nordheim is:
Warraxe – Guitars, Vocals
Benfok – Bass, Vocals
Fred – Lead Guitars
Luke – Drums



So many bands make listeners choke from their sheer delusional pretentions of grandeur. Not Nordheim, their philosophy is simply to make fun folk metal, as can be evidenced by titles such as ‘Boobs and Bacon’ and ‘I Wish You Were A Beer’!

Inspired by Wintersun, Windir, Finntroll, Equillbrium, and Carcass, guitarist and singer, and main songwriter Warraxe describes Nordheim’s sound as ‘fast, heavy, festive, cold, and catchy!’

Warraxe explains that Nordheim are truly a band of brothers. ‘We are a bunch of guys from Bellechasse, a small region south of the St-Laurent River in the province of Quebec. We were long-time friends and have metal as a common passion, one thing leads to another and we started a band.’

Live Nordheim really show their sense of fun.

Here are more comment’s of the band:

”When we play live it’s a frickin’ party! We move a lot, scream, hump the air, we drink from the fans’ beer bottles and in turn, we feed them beer, with the help of our friends and roadies coming up on stage and pouring beer in their faces. Usually between songs I’ll be making jokes about anything I can think of, as long as it’s dumb and incoherent! We have a strong sense of ‘bro-ness’ with our fans!”

Nordheim are offering various perks and bundles through their Indiegogo campaign to meet their goal of $3,500 for “RapThor”, which can be found at the following link:

Helvetestromb (Sweden) Sign With Wormholedeath!

Wormholedeath is proud to announce that swedish black metallers Helvetestromb have signed a licensing deal with Wormholedeath for the worldwide release of their album “Demonic Excrements Cursed With Life”.


Track list of ”Demonic Excrements Cursed With Life”:

1.Tempesta di Merda (A legion of Jesus Christs)
2.Restless Satan
4.Holy Christian Airstrike
5.The Demon Bell
6.Kloakerna under Hel
7.Bog of Eternal Stench
9.Tormentive Retribution
10.Sifting Excrements (Through the Teeth)
11.Morningstar:Whore crusher

About Helvetestromb:

Helvetestromb was formed in 2010, back then under the name Skoll. During a drinking binge, three of the original four members (SebastianÜberführer ov Sadistik Violations Messa, Tom Grym Ejakulator”’Ahlqvist and Axel (Piss and) Shitlord Sjöberg) contemplated over how awesome it would be to play music similar to what they loved to listen to. The idea was formed to make punk inspired black metal you’d want to bang your head and mosh to. Next day, the soon to be vocalist (Jesper ”Anal Desekrator” Tennemo) was informed that he was now in a band and it was time to start rehearsing. The following years came with a few accomplishes and some setbacks as a new drummer (HjalmarLord Necrofleshcunt Klitse Kyrö) for a time was included in the band but let go sometime later. After some serious strains within the band, the rhythm guitarist (Axel) was forced to leave the band in the summer of 2014. This allowed the remaining members to really step up their game. Also, the band’s adherence to black metal declined more and more, to make room for more thrash-sounding, heavy metal power surges. By the summer of 2014, their first professionally recorded tracks came out as an EP dished out on cassette, and its name was Helvetestromb (Hell Tornado). It received overly positive feedback from its listeners and reviewers. During the recording of their first full-length album in 2016, Skoll finally changed name to Helvetestromb, the Swedish word for an all-consuming, furious tornado of hell. The band had now crystallized into a solid power-trio with a united ambition to create a shitstorm of fast, raw and punkish metal in opposition to the modern metal scene, mixing everything they love about metal into one unrelenting, leather-clad creation of blasphemy.

Release dates:
Digital: 28 July 2017 (Wormholedeath/The Orchard)
CD: 13 October 2017 (Aural Music Group)
USA:  08 September 2017 (Wormholedeath U.S.A.)

Mutank Unleash New Mosher “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.” which is out now, and they are on Canada Tour with Annihilator!

Currently on tour across Canada with metal legends Annihilator (dates listed below), Montreal thrash champions Mutank unleash their new EP “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.” via Boonsdale Records, which is now available as of June 16th. The new EP from the 2014 Wacken Metal Battle Canada winners is short, but sweet to follow their debut cassette EP “M.E.C.H. Metal” and is a taste of what’s to come from the band’s full length planned to be unleashed later this year.
The five track demolisher “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T. was produced with Topon Das (Fuck The Facts) and is a step up from what people have heard from MUTANK thus far. The title of the EP “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.” stands for “We Have Alottta Thrash Songs That Have Abbreviated Titles” and came to be first as joke for the band.

Vocalist/bassist Stephen Reynolds comments:

It is with sinister pride we begin the next stage of “MU WORLD ORDER” with the release of our new EP W.H.A.T.S.T.H.AT. The human language is not equip to describe what will come next but one thing is certain: it’s time to mosh!” 

 “I just thought it would be funny to force an acronym for ‘what’s that?’ and I came up with ‘We Have Alottta Thrash Songs That Have Abbreviated Titles’. From there we came up with the concept of an EP with a bunch of forced acronym titles. The EP itself was written somewhat conceptually with the individual songs being very short thrash songs that come together to make one longer progressive thrash track, which harkens back to the title since we don’t even know what it is!”

Mutank‘s first single off the EP, “P.O.P.U.L.O.U.S” is streaming at the following link:

Cradle Of Filth revealed the details about the new upcoming album ”Cryptoriana-The Seductiveness Of Decay”, and the dates for the ”Cryptoriana World Tour”!

British metal gods Cradle Of Filth announced the release of  their 12th studio album, which will be entitled ”Cryptoriana The Seductiveness Of Decay.

Сродна слика

Frontman Dani Filth stated this about the new upcoming album :

”The album is deeply infused with Victorian gothic horror and thus the title is a reflection of that.

“Cryptoriana’ implies the Victorian’s infatuation with the supernatural, the grave and the ghoulish. And the subtitle ‘The Seductiveness Of Decay’ further cements this attraction to death and the glittering lengthy process of self-annihilation.

In addition, Cradle Of Filth have announced a UK and Ireland tour which will get under way at Belfast’s Limelight on October 30 and wrap up with a set at Bristol’s Bierkeller on November 11.

“The dates will be the first in a long line of shows that will extend throughout the rest of the world throughout 2018.
