"Fed-up with the entire trend flooding the scene, NERVOCHAOS was formed in mid-1996, with the idea of creating an aggressive and chaotic music shredding the barriers of Death Metal and Hardcore. The band gained cult status in the extreme music scene due to their hard work over the past years, offering a sonic extravaganza in their unique way. Their demo-tapes have become collector's items in the underground, supporting their regular releases. The band is not afraid of touring or performing live. They did many tours around Europe, South America; and shared the stage with several acts such as VENOM, POSSESSED, CANNIBAL CORPSE, KREATOR, BIOHAZARD, AGNOSTIC FRONT, CARCASS, NAPALM DEATH, DISMEMBER, D.R.I., MAYHEM, THE EXPLOITED and many more to list.  

After 18 years of churning out some of the most furious and vehement metal the South American underground has experienced, NERVOCHAOS is back with The Art of Vengeance. The band's sixth studio album, The Art of Vengeance is poised to be a standout album of 2014."

Album Review: Forgotten Tales... EP by Aegror

Band: Aegror
Album: Forgotten Tales... EP
Released: 2013
Genre: Progressive Black/Death Metal

Behind Walls
Buried in Oblivion
One to Lead

This band is an unknown band? Well that needs to change!
I love when bands have a nice slow build up in there albums. Just makes me want to keep listening. "Behind Walls" has a nice acoustic intro to the album, followed by a nice slow solo type thing by an electric guitar. To me it sorta has a Ride the Lightening feel to in. Almost makes you forget that you are listening to a Back/Death Metal album. That is until it kicks in. Then you know what you are getting into, fast and heavy Metal. "Buried in Oblivion" fades in that drums and guitars giving you that Black Metal sound. Where that first track gave me more of a Death Metal feel this one gives me a Black Metal feel to it. "Manipulation" has a nice Black Metal build up intro to it. This song has my favorite riffs in the album. "One to Lead" might be my favorite track on the album. It has a solid intro, great riffs and it is a really good mix of the Back/Death Metal sound in the album. The finally track "Prophecy" is another solid Black Metal sounding track.

This album is a good mix of Black and Death Metal. And should be able to please fans of both the genres. The musicianship is great. I just love the guitars in this album. And to vocals sound great. This is album is well mixed and sounds great. I know that a lot of Black Metal albums have low sound quality (coming from some one who doesn't listen to that much Black Metal), but this album sounds great! 

Rating: 8/10

Shadow Kingdom Records Reissuing Manilla Road's 'Out of the Abyss' January 13, 2015

Shadow Kingdom Records will reissue Out of the Abyss, the seventh full-length release from Wichita, KS' MANILLA ROAD on January 13, 2015. Originally released in 1988, Out of the Abyss is an under-appreciated gem, one that guitarist/founder Mark "The Shark" Shelton describes in the reissue's liner notes as containing "some of the most brutal material that MR has ever done. Shelton goes on to say that "it was the last album in an epic quest by Randy, Scott and I to be as fast and furious as possible with some of the songs...and most of the topics were quite dark and based on Cthulhun mythos or other horror and mystery directions."

Shadow Kingdom Records' Tim McGrogan had this to say about Out of the Abyss:

"Most fans think the golden era is Crystal Logic through Mystification, but we encourage fans to spend more time with this album. The first thing that's interesting about this album is that it originally contained one of MANILLA ROAD greatest Epic songs ever, "The Book of Skelos." The song was dropped off of the album for some unknown reason (that would be a good interview question for Mark Shelton), and later appeared on a different pressing of The Courts of Chaos and we're not entirely sure that song even made it to the first pressing of that album either. Strangely enough if you're familiar with that song and can imagine that song being a part of this album, Out of the Abyss would arguably be one of the best MANILLA ROAD albums and would have expanded and been part of what's now considered their classic era. The album is dark, evil, thrash-y heavy metal with some killer KING DIAMOND-esque vocal screams. Without a doubt Out of the Abyss has some of the fastest, most intense Thrash Metal not only on any MANILLA ROAD album, but of any 80's Thrash Metal album."

Out of the Abyss will appeal to fans SLAYER, METALLICA, IRON MAIDEN, and MERCYFUL

ANGUISH's Mountain is now streaming in its entirety at Sputnik Music. Get Doomed right here: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/blog/2014/11/09/sputnikmusic-exclusive-anguish-mountain-stream/

The follow-up to 2012's mammoth debut Through the Archdemon's Head sees the band expanding upon their oppressive brand of Doom Metal. Compared to its predecessor, Mountain is stripped down, clocking in at 48 minutes across eight tracks of suffocating dread, yet the compositions are the band's most varied to date.
