Imperative PR / De Profundis release powerful new video for 'Martyrs' and announce gig with Vallenfyre
Posted by: Denis / 15.08.2018
De Profundis' incredible visual realisation of their latest album, The Blinding Light Of Faith continues with the release of the powerful video that portrays the song Martyrs. As the band have explained, this album confronts head on the power of the three Abrahamic religions and with Martyrs they take an unflinching stand against Islamic extremism. Guitarist Paul Nazarkardeh explains the band’s stance on what can be a controversial subject... "Martyrs continues The Blinding Light of Faith's exploration of the evils committed in the name of Abrahamic religion. We invite people from ALL nations, creeds, colours, origins and walks of life to unite in condemnation against those who justify the cold blooded murder of the innocent with a perverted vision of sexual conquests in the afterlife. For those upset by the nature of the song or the video... You should be. It's an upsetting subject."

Together with the creator of the unfolding series of videos, Andy Pilkington of Very Metal Art, De Profundis have created a brave and powerful artistic statement that tackles an issue which impacts on all of our lives.

The Martyrs video is being hosted exclusively by the band's record label, the Indian powerhouse of extreme Metal, Transcending Obscurity.

In other exciting news De Profundis have been announced as special guests at Vallenfyre's last ever show! On the 29th of September at Nambucca in London, Vallenfyre will say a fond farewell to their fans with De Profundis and Hex Morbidity in support - definitely a show not to be missed!

Imperative PR / Solitary release an expanded 20th Anniversary Edition of their renowned debut album, Nothing Changes, through Doc Records
Posted by: Denis / 15.08.2018
Back in the '90s Thrash Metal was on its last legs, hearts and minds turning away from its high energy approach and crisp, crunching riffs. The old bands were slipping from the magazine covers, back into the shadows and even the gods of the scene were struggling and second guessing themselves. It was into this environment that Rich Sherrington launched his new band, Solitary – a pure, heads-down Thrash Metal unit. The scene might be trying to dictate otherwise, but as far as Rich was concerned Thrash Metal was never going to die.

In 1998 the first Solitary album was released on Holier Than Thou Records and against all the odds, Nothing Changes was greeted with cautious approval from the Metal press. Even major magazines like Terrorizer couldn't deny the power and potency that this new band, flying in the face of public opinion, had achieved. Buoyed by the positive reaction to their debut Solitary hit the road and began a relentless touring schedule around the UK which continues to this day. Subsequent albums like Requiem and The Diseased Heart Of Society have cemented Solitary's position at the top of the UK Thrash scene and while their music has become, nothing has changed when it comes to their fierce determination and total dedication to Thrash. Now, twenty years on from its original release, with the backing of new label Doc Records, Solitary have revisited the album that announced their arrival on the battlefield. Nothing Changes has returned with new artwork, a host of bonus tracks drawn from their early demos and just a little injection of modern studio wizardry. Sounding heavier and more aggressive than ever before this is one battle scarred veteran that has lost none of his venom and fighting spirit. In a nod to the past this special 20th Anniversary edition of Nothing Changes will only be available on CD, not on any digital platform, so pick up a copy while they're around or miss out forever. Celebrate the true spirit of Thrash, raise a glass to the unbowed and unbroken and pledge your allegiance to the band that promised to Thrash forever.

Imperative PR / Furious Portuguese Death Metallers Cronaxia release their debut, Collapsing The Outer Structure, through Lusitanian Music
Posted by: Denis / 15.08.2018
Imperative PR herald the release of a maelstrom of wickedly intense Death Metal, in the form of Cronaxia's debut full length album, the staggering Collapsing The Outer Structure. Cronaxia have been stalwarts of the Portuguese Death Metal underground for twenty years, with previously just one EP release to their name, 2008s The Solution Above Continuity. The sheer stamina, dexterity and technical skill required to perform Cronaxia's music has left band members burnt out and used up, hindering their progress.

Refusing to be delayed any further, band members Felipe (guitarist and founder member), Renato (guitars) and Sergio (vocals) enlisted the help of a session rhythm section, both from the band Grog - drummer Rolando Barros and bassist Alex Ribeiro – to help bring their complex creations to life. The result of this alliance is an album of blistering, hyperactive death metal that goes by the name of Collapsing The Outer Structure.

On September 7th Lusitanian Music will release this collection consisting of eight pieces of wild, inventive, planet-crushing force. Mixed and mastered by Paulo Viera, known for his production work with Ironsword and Ravensire, Collapsing The Outer Structure is a work that walks the tightrope between genius and insanity. With a lyrical concept as brain melting as the music, Cronaxia's first album is bewildering yet incredible, almost too much to comprehend.

The countdown has begun to that September 7th launch date. Prepare to be consumed, to be undone, to have your brain restructured. This is Death Metal from beyond the event horizon, from the unfathomable heart of darkness.

This release represents the first step in a new working relationship between Imperative PR and Lusitanian Music. Great things lie ahead!

  2. Logarithmic Cavitation

Imperative PR / The Thrash Machine rolls on! Solitary on the road again in the UK and Europe
Posted by: Denis / 11.07.2018
Imperative PR are pleased to announce another selection of live dates from Thrash masters Solitary, starting with an appearance at the Mosh Against Cancer festival in Coventry. They will be headlining the Hordes Of Belial festival in Scotland, heading across the North Sea for a run of headline shows in The Netherlands and rounding off the year with an appearance at Lawnmower Deth's festive bash at the Camden Underworld.

  • October 14th - Muziek Cafe, Helmond, Netherlands
  • December 15th - Camden Underworld, London (with Lawnmower Deth)
Speaking about the upcoming shows, front man Rich Sherrington said, "We are really pleased to be heading back to The Netherlands again! We had a blast there last year and having The Doc Agency on board has made things much easier for us this time around. It was literally all booked in an afternoon! And we're thrilled to get the opportunity to go back to Scotland and play at Hordes of Belial - that's going to be something special. Also, this year it's been 20 years since we released Nothing Changes so we might just have to slip in a couple of tracks from that album.We retired almost all of that material years ago."

As for being part of Lawnmower Deth's special Xmas show in London, Rich couldn't be happier and is looking forward to the challenge. "I don't think we could have wished for a better show to end the year. It's an absolute honour to be asked to join a bill of that magnitude and as always we'll be firing on all cylinders - we'll need to be at the top of our game considering the bands that we are opening for."

The band are of course always available for phone/email interviews about the impending live dates, their future plans and twenty plus years of thrashing harder and faster than the rest.

Furia Music Press / Shadowside finishes USA tour with Anvil
Posted by: Denis / 11.07.2018
Brazilian Metal band Shadowside has finished the first part of the tour in support of their new album Shades of Humanity, in a run alongside Canadian band Anvil.

The tour marked the official debut of Swedish bass player Magnus Rosén (ex-Hammerfall) on stage with the Brazilian band with concerts that went through important venues in the United States, such as The Bossanova Ballroom (Portland, OR), The Phoenix Theater (Petaluma, CA), Count's Vamp'd (Las Vegas, NV), El Club (Detroit, MI), Rock Star Pro Arena (Dayton, OH) and legendary The Roxy (Los Angeles, CA).

This was Shadowside's first tour in the USA in 9 years. The band went through over 22,000km in 46 days, playing 29 shows in 20 States, making this the band's longest ever North American tour.

The tour featured special guests, such as multi-instrumentalist Douglas Jen on the bass on 11 shows, due to the temporary absence of bassist Magnus Rosén caused by unavoidable commitments he had. Magnus returned on June 3, at the show in Los Angeles at The Roxy, which had the special appearance as a guitarist of director of photography Daniel Stilling, who directed the highly praised video for Shadowside's single Alive, in a nostalgic moment with the band's drummer Fabio Buitvidas, recalling his former band Acid Storm, from the 90's, which at the time had material produced by Stilling.

During the entire run through the United States, Shadowside collected photos and videos backstage and at the shows that will be posted over the following weeks in the band's social medias.

The band is already booking the next tour dates in other countries and more details will follow soon.

Pure Steel Records / ARTIZAN 'Curse Of The Artizan'
Posted by: Denis / 11.07.2018
The release date of the album Curse Of The Artizan by the US-Metal band ARTIZAN as rerelease on CD is August 17th, 2018.

In 2009 the Florida-originated ARTIZAN unleashed - just a year after their formation - a self-released and -titled debut-EP, which reached great success in the underground-scene.

In 2011 the first complete album Curse Of The Artizan was released, which consistently continued the class of the progressive, pathos-dripping and extremely Melodic US Metal sound. It caused some euphoric reactions from the press and fans, because the band has a completely independent sound up to this day. With Ancestral Energy and The Furthest Reaches two more masterpieces have been released in the meantime and in this year's August the guys around drummer Ty Tammeus are going to unleash their next strike Demon Rider.

Since the debut is completely out of print, it's time for a reissue, for the first time also officially in the US.

Nuclear Blast / MUNICIPAL WASTE release new music video + kick off EU tour later this month
Posted by: Denis / 11.07.2018
Richmond, Virginia's MUNICIPAL WASTE released their sixth studio album Slime And Punishment, a year ago via Nuclear Blast. In support of that release, the band are about to embark on a run of 20 club and festival dates, across nine countries in Europe (the whole itinerary can be found below). To mark the occasion, the guys have unleashed a brand new music video for the album's title track Slime And Punishment, over on YouTube.

"Teaming up with Norman Cabrera for this video was a match made in horror. His 35 years experience with practical FX in film shined through as you'll see in this latest WASTE clip. Not only a fan of monsters, he's a metal lifer like us, so we saw eye to eye on the aesthetic of everything involved. Initially, Norman approached me to make a mask for MUNICIPAL WASTE, which has been his specialty for many years. I said why don't you do us one better and make a damn video?! He leaped on the opportunity and even stepped up as the director, as well as the effects designer, making multiple masks and creating the horrific world of Slime And Punishment. We all grew up on VHS and that played a major inspiring role in the video as well. It was like making a movie, all the work that went into this and there are countless people to thank. I have to give shoutouts to Slasher Dave for composing the intro score and Joel Grind for taking us out with the synth outro, bookending this nightmare perfectly." - Ryan Waste.
