Opeth - Era

"Era", the new video from Swedish progressive rockers OPETH. A really beautifully video was made for this tune, directed by Markus Hofko.

In all of Mikael's excitement he comments:

”I have to say our involvement in the making of the ”Era” video was so minimal we can’t take credit either for or against its brilliance. We did 3D scans of our bodies (clothed) in Munich during the last European tour. I remember everyone’s extremely tired and probably slightly hungover. The director just placed us in a ice-cold room and then scanned us with something that looked like a flashing hairdryer. Done! We’ve done our part for the video. Next! During the process of finishing the piece it got clear to me that it really works with the song. That’s something I was involved in actually, picking the song. It’s extremely difficult. Which song to choose? How do I know what works best for this format? Well, I don’t. I picked a song from the record that has a strong chorus. Slightly old school way of thinking I guess, but ultimately it didn’t matter all that much to me. The video is nice. I dig it. It’s slightly on the pretentious side, but hey, works for me! And like I said, it really works with the overall vibe of the song. Lyrically and musically and definitely emotionally."

- Mikael Åkerfeldt

Today's tune "Era" is taken from OPETHs twelfth studio album "Sorceress".

Seven Sisters - Seven Sisters

Monday, New Week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

Born in the depths of West London, SEVEN SISTERS are a four-piece band forged from the same steel as the NWOBHM acts of yesteryear. Recently signing a deal with one of the most respected underground heavy metal record labels, High Roller Records, their self-titled debut album (14/10/2016) and sold out of all physical copies in three weeks after the release.

SEVEN SISTERS combines a love for story and folklore with virtuosity and epic atmosphere. Over the course of the album there are twists and turns that take you on a journey embellished with melody, ferocity, and ricocheting twin lead guitars to create a powerful riffage and a classic atmosphere that only be described as heavy metal. SEVEN SISTERS is growing for every spinn and if they continue on this path they will go long and hopefully take more space in a already well packed metal scene. High Roller Records will release a 2nd pressing of the vinyl coming early 2017!

Sum: Something for every Heavy Metal freak!

A nice blue Vinyl :)

Today's tune is the opening track “Destiny’s Calling”, with a slow and mystic intro until it kicks on with a full blast.

Icecross - Jesus Freaks

Sunday, time for a classic!

Copenhagen in the autumn of 1972, the crucible for Icelandic hippies, where the Free State of Kristiania held the promise of a better world where everyone was equal, providing according to available resources, partaking as needed. They celebrated the one year anniversary of Kristiania gathered around a great bonfire and promised to turn the Free State into a model of cooperation, togetherness and solidarity – a sort of primal Christianity.

ICECROSS were Icelanders living in Kristiania with big dreams.

For several reasons ICECROSS never made it. But they however manage to cut a record bearing the name of the group. A great record that is really hard to get these days.

There where only 1000 LP copies made. A CD of the original source is in the making, since the one on the market today is a bootleg.

Today's tune "Jesus Freaks" taken from the self titled album by ICECROSS. A nice obscure rock from the 70's, enjoy!

Megatherium - Fly High

Coming from over 15 years of different music genres in many bands of Verona, Italy (Aneurysm, Gen Marrone, Mr. Wilson, Lokomotive, Elicotrema), the four members of MEGATHERIUM joined 4 years ago to provide unique stoner doom riffing, heavy distortion and a strong metal attitude, inspired by bands as SLEEP, DOWN, CONAN and CAVITY.

"Superbeast" is the sum of three years of composition and live-shows. A gigantic creature, emerging from the darkest abyss, evoked by low-tuning music, tons of decibels, heavy riffings and obsessive sounds. "Superbeast" collects both the earliest stoner influences and the most recent psych-doom compositions. Lyrics deal with apocalypse, destruction, reborn, sin, redemption, good and evil. "Superbeast" was released November 4, 2016, Recorded, mixed and mastered by Gianluca Bianco at Gypsy Studio, Verona, Italy. Artwork: onicedesign.it

Fabio 'Zekimmortal' † bass, vocals

SOEN - Lucidity

"Lucidity", the new video from SOEN, the Swedish progressive heavy rock group featuring world-renowned drummer Martin Lopez (formerly of AMON AMARTH and OPETH) and the dynamic voice of Joel Ekelöf (WILLOWTREE). The tune is taken from SOENs new and upcoming full-length album "Lykaia", which will be released on February 3.

Lopez tells Billboard: "This song represents a time in my life when I unconsciously walked towards self-destruction and celebrates, to an extent, the death of that lifestyle and the birth of a new era. It's dark but comforting. The music is soft and dreamy but carries the tension of a past-life full of mistakes."

"Lykaia" is a journey into earthier places — SOEN's most cohesive, powerful and congruent creative quest yet. For those who have followed SOEN's career thus far, the new album's concepts of journey and exploration are not new. 2012's "Cognitive" beat a firmly heavy, progressive metal path. 2014's "Tellurian" — with its PINK FLOYD explorative spirit and OPETH-like forceful power — saw SOEN start to stride freely into their own control and unique visions.

The album was recorded at Ghost Ward, Studio Gröndal and Deep Well in Stockholm, Sweden.

SOEN is:

Stefan Stenberg – Bass
Marcus Jidell – Guitar
Lars Åhlund – Keys, guitar
Joel Ekelöf – Vocals
Martin Lopez – Drums, percussion

Today's tune is the official video for the new track "Lucidity" taken from the new album "Lykaia" available 3rd February 2017.

Upcoming Tourdates:

Mar 29 Spillestedet Stengade w/ Madder Mortem Copenhagen, Denmark

Batushka - Litourgiya

Monday, new week, time to introduce "Record of the Week".

Yes, I'm still stuck in the extreme, I guess that I have to blame Chief Rebel for that. Since the annual Hard Rock evening the harder tones have been played a lot and it seams that I can't stop,  I also started to go true the records that have been stuck to the side for the genre that was overwhelming me before Christmas. Something that I'm pretty happy for after all, as there was many records that was really good, here is one that really blew me away.

BATUSHKA is a Polish band whose members have not been disclosed, well they are doing the GHOST thingie, but they are reputed to be from well-known bands, rumours whispering that MGLA is behind this, if so well done guys as this is a great release.

BATUSHKA is pronounced "Batjushka", the band's Cyrillic name Батюшка means "father" and is used to address an Eastern Orthodox priest. Despite their themes and imagery, they are not a Christian band.

"Litourgiya" is masterfully crafted piece of art, it's clouded with a dark atmosphere surrounded with Orthodox imagery and liturgical chant in a marvellous blend of Black Metal and Doom Metal. The riffs are heavy, distorted and very down tuned along with tight bass and blistering drumming. From start to finish it has a deep feeling evil amends and old history, almost that you can feel the incense when you close your eyes and listening through your high-end headphones.

The production is really good, it's raw and constant, perfectly for this record. was the influence of Rotting Christ

Summery: It's a must have album, if you can obtain a copy go on and grab it.

Today's tune "Yektenia I" is taken from "Litourgaya"

Death - Zombie Ritual

Sunday, time for a classic.

"Scream Bloody Gore" is the debut studio album by American Death metal band DEATH, released on May 25, 1987 by Combat Records. It was considered "the first true death metal record". Chuck Schuldiner plays bass and guitar, wrote all the songs on the album and provided all the vocals. John Hand is noted on the cover as playing rhythm guitar, though this was incorrect and Hand was only in the band for a short period and was not on the recording. This is also the only DEATH album to feature drummer Chris Reifert, who had joined for the Mutilation demo.

Perseverance Holdings, Ltd. and Relapse Records reissued the album on May 20, 2016 on CD, vinyl, and cassette. The album was remastered for this release, and also included the original Florida session as well as recordings of rehearsals performed in 1986.

"Scream Bloody Gore" was actually recorded twice, with the second Los Angeles-based session being released as the complete album by label Combat Records (later Relativity). It was first recorded in Florida, although only the rhythm guitar and drum tracks were recorded. The track listing consisted of "Torn to Pieces", "Legion of Doom", "Scream Bloody Gore", "Sacrificial Cunt" (later shortened to "Sacrificial" because the label asked the band to do so, possibly because "they didn't want to get P.M.R.C. on their case"), "Mutilation", "Land of No Return", and "Baptized in Blood". The label were unsatisfied after hearing the initial mix, so Schuldiner and Reifert re-recorded the album in California with Randy Burns as producer. Once returning to Florida, the first session was released as a promotional tape, and was eventually bootlegged. "Legion of Doom" was a longtime staple of DEATHs rehearsals and live shows, and was indeed the first song written, reaching back to when they were known as Mantas.

Despite the many songs written during DEATHs demo days, only half of them were re-recorded for the album, the rest being new compositions. "Infernal Death" and "Baptized in Blood" originally appeared on the Infernal Death demo. "Zombie Ritual", "Mutilation" and "Land of No Return" originally appeared on the Mutilation demo, and "Evil Dead" and "Beyond the Unholy Grave" were originally on Death By Metal. "Beyond the Unholy Grave" and "Land of No Return" were also cut from the album, though were included on the re-release, with the live audio tracks taken from the Ultimate Revenge II video.

Certain songs on the album were inspired by horror movies. For example, "Regurgitated Guts" was inspired by the 1980 film City of the Living Dead (a.k.a. The Gates of Hell), "Beyond the Unholy Grave" was influenced by the 1981 film The Beyond, and "Zombie Ritual" was inspired by the 1979 film Zombie, all of which were directed by Italian director Lucio Fulci.

DEATH was an American death metal band from Orlando, Florida, founded in 1983 by guitarist and vocalist Chuck Schuldiner. DEATH is considered to be one of the most influential bands in heavy metal and a pioneering force in death metal. Its debut album, Scream Bloody Gore, has been widely regarded as the first death metal record, while the band's driving force, Chuck Schuldiner, is acknowledged as the originator of extreme metal. DEATH had a revolving lineup, with Schuldiner being the sole consistent member. The group's style also progressed, from the raw sound on its early albums to a more sophisticated one in its later stage. The band ceased to exist after Schuldiner died of brain cancer in December 2001, but remains an enduring metal brand.

Ash Borer - Lacerated Spirit

West Coast black metal band ASH BORER, over the last several years, have been recognized as one of the more prominent and active bands in the U.S. black metal scene today. With their third full-length album "The Irrepassable Gate", which follows 2012’s "Cold Of Ages" and was produced by Randall Dunn (SUNN 0))), MARISSA NADLER, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM), ASH BORER have created their most dynamic and sprawling album to date. Continuing to harness the wall-of-sound harshness and expansiveness of their signature time-stretching tracks, having Randall Dunn at the engineering helm has helped the band deliver their biggest sounding album yet, creating a much more enveloping all-encompassing atmosphere while still maintaining the raw, abrasive, and primal aura that has defined the band’s sound.

ASH BORERs third full length "The Irrepassable Gate" was released December 2nd, 2016 by Profound Lore Records on CD/Digital. A vinyl edition will follow this coming Spring, and a cassette edition is in the works through Psychic Violence Records for an early winter release.

The album was Produced, engineered, and mixed by Randall Dunn. Mastered by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service. Art and Design by Glyn Smyth for Stag and Serpent.

Today's tune "Lacerated Spirit" is a dreamy piece taken from "The Irrepassable Gate"

Mortichnia - Heir

"Heir to Scoria and Ash" is the black/doom metal five-piece’s debut album by the Irish MORTICHINA. Recorded over a ten day period in December 2014 at trackmix studio, the record was Produced, mixed, mastered by James Kelly (ALTAR OF PLAGUES), engineered by Michael Richards with Catherine Gavin providing Artwork.

MORTICHINA is a pretty new name to the Irish scene, but the members involved are certainly no strangers. Formerly working under the familiar moniker of WOUND UPON WOUND, in late 2014 it was decided a fresh start was needed, so WUW was retired and the latest line-up re-emerged soon after under the name MORTICHNIA.

Inspired by the burning fervour of black metal and the crushing despair of doom metal, "Heir to Scoria and Ash" is a conscious condemnation of human frailty and an awakening of irrefutable regret. Drawing lyrical inspiration from misanthropic instinct, the work presented speaks of sullen wisdom, it's begotten grief sustained by cathartic visions of impermanence. Which apses demands more? No bodies prostrate in twisted reverence before its cold logic.

Mortichnia are: I.D - Vocals L.M - Guitar D.G - Guitar J.H - Bass P.F - Drums.

UADA - Devoid of Light

From the darkness, UADA (meaning haunted in latin) emerges breathing the spirit of the original 90’s Black Metal wave. Since 2014, this Portland, Oregon four-piece has used a unique approach to combine raw black metal and spectral melodies.

January 24th, 2015 saw the live debut appearance for a packed house at ‘Famine Fest II in Portland, alongside bands like TERRORIZER, ENGORGED, NEKROFILTH, DRAWN & QUARTERED, CEMETERY LUST & many more. UADA was well received & quickly dubbed one of the main highlights of the Festival. Following their first and only photo shoot with Peter Beste, UADA returned fire in Portland at the 6th Northwestern Black Circle Festival with INQUISITION, DEMONCY, WEREGOAT, SLUTVOMIT & many more. This first year included 10 additional showings in the Pacific Northwest with ANTAEUS, NEGURA BUNGET, BELL WITCH, CHRISTIAN MISTRESS, SABBATH ASSEMBLY and more.

Vinyl version, to bad it's already sold out, would like to get my hands a copy of this.
In spring 2016, their debut album "Devoid of Light" was released via Eisenwald, self-recorded by the band & then mastered by Joel Grind (TOXIC HOLOCAUST). It features the artwork of Kris Verwimp and band photography by Peter Beste. In support of this new album, UADA is confirmed to play the Northwestern Black Circle Festival again, this time with ABSU and will mark the kick off date for a west coast tour.

Thanks Chief Rebel for the tip on this band, they are freaking good.

Today's tune is the title track from the debut album "Devoid of Light".

Cobalt - Slow Forever

Category Eight: 
(Best Right Now) 
last and final tune taken from the annual hard rock evening.

This is one of the most funniest categories to do, here you get the chance to play something really good that you like and share it to the others and hopefully they will like it to. The tune that I picked this year was "Hunt The Buffalo" taken from the fourth studio album "Slow Forever" by American black metal duo COBALT. An album that have been played in my mind a lot lately. "Slow Forever" with COBALT reaches the 4th place on the Tune Of The Day's TOP 100 album list of the Best Albums 2016, where all the top 5 albums is a winner.

So why not a combo, a "Record of the Week" with the annual hard rock evening in the same post? Hell yeah, as it's Monday and a new week so lets do it.

But first the other tunes that was played.

COBALT - Hunt The Buffalo
GHOST - Square Hammer
KVELERTAK - Nattesferd
SIXX:AM - Lies of the Beautiful People
METALLICA - Halo on Fire
UADA - Our Pale Departure

(Missing songs from two participants).

"Slow Forever" is a big return by COBALT, more triumphant and focused as ever. With Wunder and the new vocalist Fell they have created an epic album. A real reborn COBALT that have make their best-ever record. Aggressive, violent and very accessible, a magic mix of purifying blast of righteous, mixing doom metal with black metal and hardcore.

COBALT are: Erik Wunder (all instruments) Charlie Fell (vocals)

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio in Denver, CO.

Today's tune "Beast Whip" is unsurprisingly a masterpiece that will get your stiff body to shake.

Tiamat - The Sleeping Beauty

Category Six: 
(Optional tune) 
taken from the annual hard rock evening. 

For this category my choice was the Swedish Psychedelic Rockers SALEMs POT with the excellent tune "Tranny Takes A Trip". Not so popular around metal heads, but I like it :)
Other tunes that was played.

Clouds expanded upon the death/doom sound of the previous album by introducing a broader focus on melodic and goth rock-inspired elements, including occasional clean vocals, while retaining much of the crushing death/doom edge and Edlund's guttural death growl.
