Dire Omen Premiere New Song from Upcoming Album

Canadian Black/Death Metallers DIRE OMEN have premiered another new song from upcoming Dark Descent Records release Wresting the Revelation of Futility, courtesy of NoCleanSinging.com. Listen to the exclusive stream of "Foretold Untethering from Existence" at  http://www.nocleansinging.com/2014/11/05/an-ncs-premiere-dire-omen-foretold-untethering-from-existence/.

Wresting the Revelation of Futility will be released November 13 on Dark Descent Records. Pre-order it at this location.

Characterized by a progression towards the chaotic, opaque darkness that now permeates their sound, the history of the Canadian Black/Death Metallers has led to the establishment of an undeniable identity, most evident on this debut album. Utilizing abyssal, morose imagery combined with a strong sense of Thelemic ritualism, DIRE OMEN has developed a unique take on the Black/Death genre.

Here and Hereafter (Overture)
Onward with Wounds of Disillusion
Hemotically Possessed
Servus Sevorum Dei
Foretold Untethering from Existence
Beyond Stillness
Vacuous Altar
Inversion of Samadhi Dire Omen
Closing the Portal

"The album is war and you must fight to survive! An excellent choice for metal this year and an absolute must listen!" - Headbang or GTFO

 "If you like a deadly mix of blast-beats, striking guitar leads and above all a really monstrous sense of arrogance and mocking then This Will Decay should please all those who flock to the temple of blackened death metal." -

Formed in 1995, INFERION have refined their intense sound and present their finest work to date. This epic 14-track, 55-minute majestic masterpiece is a vicious onslaught of Blackened Death Metal that crushes bone and penetrates flesh with the precision of a newly sharpened blade. Superior production quality tears through the many deep layers of this album to reveal complex lead guitar work, a wide array of vocal approaches and the relentless hyper blast of Carlos Delgado. This Will Decay solidifies INFERION's rightful place as one of 2014's purveyors of the most vile underground music available.

Album Review: Warm Winter Day By Shiran

Band: Shiran
Album: Warm Winter Day EP
Release Date: November 15, 2014
Genre: Metal
Label: Self-Released 

Warm Winter Day
The Child
Glint of Light
Burden’s Off

If this is going to be the band's first release, then I can't wait to hear more!

This album starts off heavy with the intro to "Remain." I love albums that start you off wanting to headbang. Then once the first verse comes in it slows up the pace of the song but then picks up when the chorus comes in. The self-titled track "Warm Winter Day" is a really good mix of hard riffs mixed with melodic vocals. Really that is want this band is good at; having the melodic voice over the hard and heavy riffs. The intro to "Glint of Light" has to be my favorite of the album. They way that is has the soft intro then her vocals kick in; after that the pace picks up.

Overall this is a well put together album. Everything sounds clean and well mixed. The instruments don't over power the vocals and the vocals don't take too much from the instruments. This being there first album release I have a feeling they are going to be around for a good while.

This album has a good mixture of genres. At some point I think I am listen to Djent but then all of a sudden I think I am listen to Power Metal. They just have a will mix of material in the album. And because of that it was really hard for me to pick my favorite song out of this EP. Every song is Unique and it will keep the listener wanting to more.

This EP will be something that I will be adding to my collection.

Random Album Review: Pride of Texas by Texas Hippie Coalition

Band: Texas Hippie Coalition
Album: Pride of Texas
Released: February 12, 2008
Genre: Heavy Metal, Red Dirt
Label: Independent 
Producer: David Prater

No Shame
Clenched Fist
Pissed Off and Mad About It
Troublesome Times
Drug Dealer
Texas Tags

So I am going into this album like I do with mostly all my Random Album Reviews and that is not ever listening to the band before. I have heard good things about this band but I never really got a chance to listen to them; I am glad I did.

This band has a little Pantera feel to it, I mean I read somewhere that the song Clenched Fist is a tribute to "Dimebag." But it is not a band that feels like a clone of Pantera. They make it there own. I enjoyed listening to this album. It has some good riffs and solos. I love the vocals in this album. Just everything goes so well together.

Rating: 8/10

Favorite Songs: Clenched Fist, Drug Dealer, Texas Tags, Leavin', Closure

"Western Canada is in the midst of quite a metal boom as of late, especially Vancouver, and Astrakhan is the latest to attract attention. Cut from the same cloth as Kylesa, [they] serve up a confident combination of sludge, prog, and garage rock" - Adrien Begrand (Decibel)

Philadelphia's INFILTRATOR Release Self-Titled Cassette on Unspeakable Axe Records

Fast, filthy and diabolical, Philadelphia's INFILTRATOR have released their self-titled EP on cassette through Unspeakable Axe Records. It is the must-hear speed metal assault of 2014 and the complete EP can be streamed at this location.

The band released their debut EP last year as a download only.  Now Unspeakable Axe Records has put it on cassette: black with gold metallic print, and limited to 200 copies. INFILTRATOR shares a member with both death metallers TRENCHROT and trad-doom group CRYPT SERMON.  With an identity all its own, the group bangs out classic speed metal riffing and one fire-bombing solo after another, while the tortured howl of front man Steve Jansson sounds like the first bloodthirsty mutant to crawl out of the crater once the apocalypse is in full bloom.

The tape is for sale at: http://www.unspeakableaxerecords.com/purchase
