Now the news is published irregularly

Posted by: Denis / 20.09.2018
Striving to resuscitate the aggressive, driving Metal of the mid-'80s Thrash scene, VERMITHRAX was forged in 'Steel City' Pittsburgh, PA during 2012 by vocalist Chris 'Croy' Roy (Reading Zero, Emancipation) and drummer J.R. Jameson (Nunslaughter, Icarus Witch, Mercenary). Joined by guitarist Scott 'Hagz' Haggerty and bassist Tom Donaldson (Mercenary, Eye) to round out the lineup, the quartet issued its debut EP, Volume 1, which was met with immediate praise—the metal press hailing the band's deft blend of progressive and thrash elements, thundering drums, shredding solos, as well as Croy's multi-faceted vocals.

Sharing the stage with such heavy-hitters as Iced Earth, Metal Church, Queensrÿche, Fates Warning, Overkill, Sabaton, Lizzy Borden, While Heaven Wept, Evergrey has aided VERMITHRAX in sharpening their skills in preparation for their sophomore outing, Imperium Draconus—recorded at the band's personal studio, The Lair, and mixed in part by Christopher Lee Simmonds (Thought Industry, Filter, Emancipation Syndicate) and Jim Dofka (Dofka, Psycho Scream, etc.).

The anthemically epic vibe of Enoch and brooding chug of Crucified by Hate are definitive emblems of VERMITHRAX's balanced yet varied approach—their classic metal-inspired sound featuring an array of blistering guitar solos and animated, identifiable vocals. Road to Athkatla emerges as the album's razor-sharp foray into the adventurous worlds of progressive and power metal; while River Crour immediately breathes thrashing mad fire. Written as an homage to Slayer's Jeff Hanneman on the day he passed, it lends the perfect counterbalance to the intricately nuanced yet powerful Spellbound and the pummeling, prog-tinged driver, Calling My Name. The disc closes with a steamrolling thrasher that combines VERMITHRAX's unique approach branded deep into a medley of two Flotsam and Jetsam staples — Hammerhead and Hard on You — as a heartfelt tribute to one of their favorite classic Thrash influences. With Imperium Draconus, Divebomb Records is proud to assist VERMITHRAX in igniting the world with their fiery brand of Progressive-and Power Metal-infused Thrash!

Posted by: Denis / 20.09.2018
There's going to be all sorts of exciting news to come from The Drowning between now and the end of the year and Imperative PR are starting with the announcement of three massive live dates. The Welsh Doom Death kings will be joining Death Metal royalty on the UK leg of the huge European Chaos Tour. Co-headlined by Vader and Entombed A.D., this tour is sure to be one of the biggest underground Metal events of 2018.
Back in 2017 The Drowning joined Vader and Immolation for their UK run and this time the venues are bigger and the buzz surrounding the tour is even more intense. Catch the heaviest tour of the Autumn at the following venues...
  • November 2nd Cardiff The Globe
  • November 4th Coventry Empire
  • November 5th London The Dome
These three fantastic shows will form the opening barrage in a campaign that will see The Drowning march out from their Welsh stronghold, with conquest on their minds. In the silent shadows the band have been working tirelessly, building on the foundations laid down by the majestic Senescent Signs album and now the time is nigh for a new era to begin, a new chapter in their tale of sorrow and inevitable mortality to be written. Be prepared, your doom is nigh!

Som do Darma / New international project Holy Tide to release debut album Aquila with rock 'n' roll legends as special guests
Posted by: Denis / 13.09.2018
Hailing from Salerno, Italy, Holy Tide is a new international Metal supergroup formed by the bass player Joe Caputo, Maestrick's vocalist Fabio Caldeira and the British drummer Michael Brush.

The band's debut album is going to be titled Aquila, which means 'Eagle' in Italian, and it's an apocalyptic concept album. Aquila will bring 13 tracks:
  1. The Age Of Darkness
  2. Chains Of Enoch
  3. Godincidence
  4. Curse And Ecstasy
  5. Exodus
  6. Eagle Eye
  7. The Crack Of Dawn
  8. Lord Of The Armies
  9. Sunk Into The Ground
  10. The Shepherd’s Stone
  11. Lamentation
  12. Return From Babylon
  13. The Name Of Blasphemy
According to the bass player, main composer and mastermind of the band, Joe Caputo, the idea of creating Holy Tide came on the spring of 2017. "Back then, I decided to quit the band I was working with, to achieve something more. I wanted to be able to express my creativity with no limits", says the musician that mentions, as Holy Tide's influences, names from Iron Maiden and Slayer to Bach and Wagner.

All guitars on Aquila were recorded at Rroarrr Sound Studio in Sassari, Italy, by Kris Laurent (ex-Cadaveria) who also signs the production of the album. Basses and vocals were recorded at Studio 35 Live in Salerno, Italy, while drums at CapsaArx Studios, in Birmingham, England. "Holy Tide is a very ambitious project, that reflects the power of music", Caputo says. "This is the result of twenty years of studying, struggling, suffering, dreaming and so on. There is a very strong team, working hard 'behind the scenes', that allowed me to gather an amazing line-up, divided between two continents, and everyone has been working really hard to give their best in this record, embracing my vision about the music in this concept album."

Aquila is expected to bring some very special guests. The band won't reveal the names right now, but at least two of the guests had already recorded their contributions to the album. "Trust me, they are real rock 'n' roll legends! That's all I can say right now", ends Caputo.

Holy Tide's Aquila is expected to reach the stores before the end of 2018. The first single will soon be announced and available on digital platforms.
