Behold the new masters of darkness! SEPTICFLESH kindly invite you to join "The Great Mass". The Greeks' seventh full length is a new symphonic masterpiece that constitutes a quantum leap in the art of amalgamating orchestral music with Heavy Metal. These songs are audible evidence of guitarist Christos Antoniou finishing his studies of classical composition with academic honours and distinction. "The Great Mass" sounds nothing like the nowadays all too common application of ordinary soundtrack themes to hard music.
Italy's brutal/symphonic horde, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, have returned with their definitive epic masterpiece Agony. With only two releases under their belts, Oracles (2009) and the Mafia EP (2010), FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE have already become one of the most talked about bands in the underground. Their unique blend of technical death metal with a symphonic elements have quickly made them a favorite with fans and critics alike. Now, after a slew of successful tours in Europe and the US, the band have unleashed their defining moment in the form of Agony!
Black Crown Initiate is the sound of a sentient being at war with itself and everything else; an entity holding on for dear life as its inner and outer world dies.
Many say that Montreal (Quebec) is the Metal capital of North America. The abundance of people supporting their scene is outstanding, so is the ingenious song writing of its bands. Among the most extreme acts building the scene since the early 90s, we recall - Gorguts, Kataklysm, Cryptopsy… and NecronomicoN. Officially formed in 1991 by guitarist/frontman Rob "the Witch", NecronomicoN has been in constant evolution ever since, creating a fusion of atmospheric melodies and groundbreaking metallic attack. "Morbid Ritual" is what initiated the process, revealing 5 songs of Occult Death Metal and critically acclaimed in several countries. Unfortunately the band's next release was delayed due to numerous complications, however NecronomicoN was able to optimize its live performance, playing throughout the nation and thus gaining higher recognition. They were by then considered as one of the main acts in the Canadian Metal scene.
