KATAKLYSM & HYPOCRISY Announce “Death…Is Just The Beginning” European Co-Headline Tour

Montréal based melodic death metallers KATAKLYSM announce that they will be teaming up with Swedish death metal legends HYPOCRISY for a European co-headline tour! After several years without any touring activities, the band with Peter Tägtgren (PAIN, LINDEMANN) is back in business; KATAKLYSM will release their upcoming studio record, »Meditations«, on June 1st, 2018 through Nuclear Blast. The tour’s special name traces back to Nuclear Blast’s popular sampler series and promises nothing but evenings of moshpits and endless devastation. Don’t miss out on this outstanding tour and secure your tickets now!

KATAKLYSM’s Maurizio Iacono commented:
“It’s been in talks for over two years and finally both KATAKLYSM and our brothers in HYPOCRISY can make the schedule work to join forces once more. It’s been almost 15 years since we toured together and the last time we did the tours became instant classics. It‘s that time again folks… KATAKLYSM & HYPOCRISY team up once more for a world tour beginning with Europe this fall. To make things even greater our record label Nuclear Blast has come on board and baptized the tour »Death…Is Just The Beginning«, a homage to the old classic compilations that made so many fans discover both bands back in the day. This will mark the return of this classic compilation with this tour and maybe give other artists the chance to get discovered like we did. DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR, YOU ONLY GET ONE CHANCE!”

HYPOCRISY’s Peter Tägtgren added:
“I hope that you are just as excited as we are, because we are very happy to announce that we are finally warming up the HYPOCRISY engine again and that we will be back on the road in fall! We will be touring Europe together with our friends in KATAKLYSM! The tour will be an overview of the chaos and confusion created by HYPOCRISY over the years. See you out there!”

Occult Hard Rockers Acârash Reveal Details Of Debut Full-Length Album


Dark Essence Records have set the 8th of June as the release  for the debut full-length album from Norwegian Occult Hard Rockers ACÂRASH.    Titled "In Chaos Becrowned", the eight track album was mixed and mastered by Ruben Willem at the Caliban Studios in Oslo,  and features artwork by Lasse Almqvist Scherven. 

Tracklisting for "In Chaos Becrowned", which will be released in Digi CD and LP formats, is as follows:

1. Cadaver Dei
2. Shadows Roam
3. Gathering of Crows
4. In Chaos Becrowned
5. Ashes of the Mortal Mind
6. Legio Obscura
7. Sacrifice the Winter Wolf
8. Cenotaph in Flesh

ACÂRASH, whose lineup comprises Sølve Sæther on drums, Lukas Paulsen on guitars and Anlov P. Mathiesen on bass and vocals, was formed in Oslo in the fall of 2016,  and is rooted in the 80s and 90s avant-garde rockers THE VOID .  With members hailing from bands such as LONELY KAMEL, ZECTION8, FAUSTUS and DEEP REST, ACÂRASH is a band whose influences are varied, and which embraces tradition, yet manages to forge an identity all of its own.

By combining  hard rock, with doom and black metal, ACÂRASH  has succeeded in forming  a  sound in which esoteric poetry and ritualistic contemplation are central to the music, and mirror the nuances in both sound and musical contrasts.

With "In Chaos Becrowned", ACÂRASH has  shown an ability to reinvent, whilst at the same time  preserve, in order to deliver a record that explores and develops the boundaries of rock and metal, and naturally alternates between raw catchiness, dark introspection, and progressive playfulness.

More information about  ACÂRASH can be found on the band's Facebook page at

A series of short teaser videos from ACÂRASH's debut full-length album "In Chaos Becrowned" can be seen on Facebook at

Dimmu Borgir have proved once again that they are back for good after over 7 years of silence. On May 4th, the black metal masters will bring us their new full-length album Eonian and today, they unveil their second single with a nice music video.

With 1.3 million Youtube-views on their first single 'Interdimensional Summit', Norwegian black metallers  Dimmu Borgir have proved once again  that they are back for good after over 7 years of silence. On May 4th, the black metal masters will bring us  their new full-length album  Eonian and today, they unveil their second single with a nice music video.

The experimental, folkloristic 'Council of Wolves And Snakes' is risking a look far beyond the horizon and proves that the band follows 'no formula, no absolute', as Silenoz (Official) vows, and shows that the path sometimes guides them to places they would have never expected to end up when they started their journey.

Vocalist Shagrath (Official) states: "It's a song that sticks out from the rest of the album, it's DIMMU BORGIR going into an experimental direction, but you can also find a lot of black metal inspiration in the middle section of the song. We are a band that has never been afraid of trying out new directions and artistically this is surely a very interesting and different track."

The digital single is available for download and streaming via this link:
