Raven issue 14th full-length studio album Metal City on September 18th, 2020 through Steamhammer / SPV. The outing marks the first Raven studio album to feature Fear Factory drummer Mike Heller, who replaced Joe Hasselvander in 2017. Frontman John Gallagher commented: “Our initial goal was just to raise the bar once more. We did a good job on ExtermiNation [2015] and decided we just wanted more of everything next time. However, things changed once we got Mike on board. Attitude and tempos got revved up a lot! Mike is a ball of energy. He has a good ear and is a big fan of the early albums, especially the crazy feel. He’s kicked us into a higher gear where we feel that we can play anything and everything we write with no restrictions.” Metal City was recorded at Michael Wagner’s WireWorld Studio in Nashville, Tennessee. Mixing and mastering was handled by Chris “Zeuss” Harris.

German Speed Metal legend Iron Angel returns this year with the release of their forthcoming fourth studio album “Emerald Eyes“, which is set for release in October of 2020 by Mighty Music. The follow-up to their 2018 comeback album “Hellbound“, which gathered massive reviews sees the band maturing and refining their sound without compromising intensity and aggression, quite the contrary. The new release brings back a lot of the thrashiness, that has been somewhat absent from anything the band has done since their 1985 debut „Hellish Crossfire“. On the other hand, the songwriting, the performances, and the overall package, everything has reached a new level in quality and with it’s clear (though not sterile) production, the band sounds fresh, hungry, and energetic.

Black Metal | Label : Ashen Dominion

"Our 7th full-length “Where the Word Acquires Eternity” is a concept album dedicated to the events that took place in our native city of Kharkiv in the 30s of the XX century – the times called Renaissance of Ukrainian culture. By that time, in the end of 1920s, a residential multi-storey house was built by cooperative of writers. Externally the house was built in the shape of the letter С and was named Будинок “Слово” (a House “Word”). In most Slavic languages the word “Слово” means “Word”. A whole galaxy of Ukrainian writers, playwrights, poets, publicists, actors and public figures lived here until mass repressions against Ukrainian cultural figures began in 1933. This tragic page of history is known as the “Executed Renaissance”. Almost all the residents of the House “Slovo” were subjected to repression: some were shot, some were exiled, and some committed suicide. The walls of the writer's House “Slovo” still preserve the atmosphere of stone cells, which have become “custodies” for their residents."Recorded, mixed and mastered autumn 2019 - spring 2020 in Viter Music Studio, Kharkiv, Ukraine. All music written by Jurgis, except 'Crystals of the Fall' by Jurgis / Helg. Produced and arranged by KHORS.

The trolls are back – angrier, hungrier and meaner than ever! “Vredesvävd” is Finntroll’s seventh full-length, the first in long seven years. The title translates to “Wrath-woven”, which aptly implies what the vigorous, unapologetic and ill-spirited record is all about. Recorded and mixed at the renowned Sonic Pump Studios, mastered at Chartmakers and produced by keyboardist-composer Henri “Trollhorn” Sorvali with vocalist Mathias “Vreth” Lillmåns acting as his right hand, “Vredesvävd” presents the pointy-eared gang of misfits at their finest.

Progressive Rock | Label : Inside Out

Neal Morse: "I'm so pleased to announce my new solo prog concept album Sola Gratia! The album quickly came together at the beginning of this year and I've been fortunate to be able to work remotely with my dear friends and longtime collaborators Mike Portnoy, Randy George, Eric Gillette, Bill Hubauer and Gideon Klein on this project. The title Sola Gratia of course has echoes of my 2007 album Sola Scriptura, about the life of Martin Luther, but was in fact originally the result of a simple misunderstanding between me and my wife Cherie. I was talking to Cherie about debuting this new piece at Morsefest 2020 and she said she thought it would be good for me to do a solo album. However, I thought she said Sola album and - because some of the new ideas involved Paul's aggressive pursuit of the early Christians - I could see a link to some of the themes of persecution in Sola Scriptura."

Death Metal | Label : Century Media Records

“The Entombment Of Chaos” is the fourth album by LA’s death metal act SKELETAL REMAINS, who have been inspired by the genre’s legends of the 80’s and 90’s like Death, Morbid Angel, Gorguts, Obituary, Cannibal Corpse and Pestilence yet manage to combine old school roots successfully with an up-to-date, massive sound and their own inimitable intensity. On “The Entombment Of Chaos”, SKELETAL REMAINS now reach a new creative peak resulting their finest album so far. Vocalist/guitarist Chris roars like Schuldiner or Tardy in their heydays, plays leads that bear the melodic feeling of James Murphy - whose band Disincarnate SR covered this time around – whereas drummer Charlie Koryn (Ascended Dead) pummels the listener with his ferocious performance.

Finnish melodeathers Noumena will release their new album “Anima” on the 4th of September 2020. Rarely there is a better soundtrack at hand for the approaching autumn than this album, lingering amid heavy, dark and slow waters. The upcoming album presents the darkest and the most melancholic Noumena so far. Band’s unique style to weave wistful melodies is present once again. The songs offer glimpses of Finnish folk music and old schlager fortified with merciless and heavy base. The distinctive feature of “Anima” is melancholy and serenity.

Italy | MP3 CBR 320 Kbps | 99 MB
Heavy Metal/Hard Rock | Label : Frontiers Records

HELL IN THE CLUB from Italy feature members of ELVENKING and SECRET SPHERE, from bands which play a totally different genre, though, but the songs delivered here on their fifth album to date are pure hard rock with lots of party attitude including hooks that can mostly be called anthems. CRAZY LIXX, CRASHDIET, (more recent) H.E.A.T. or even MÖTLEY CRÜE seem to have been major influences here. Luckily, the modern sounds – whatever this means – mentioned in the info sheet provided by the label can’t (hardly) be found at all. And “Lullaby For An Angel“ is a great ballad with a lot of eighties DNA. Nevertheless, there are a couple of songs which can’t fully meet the quality of highlights like the mentioned tracks or “Nostalgia“ and “Tokyo Lights“. A pretty solid album, though. An album with an honest and down-to-earth production which does want to sound perfect…

At last, it arrives under the ominous title Kingdom of Decay. Everything on Kingdom of Decay is an intensification of that short-but-sweet debut EP: the riffs more patient but punishing, the doom darker and doled out more effectively, the songs more world-eating whilst effectively exploring a greater wealth of dynamics and, it must be said, atmosphere. Elsewhere, the winning formula of Into the Blackness remains largely unchanged - the stately, steely pulse of later Bolt Thrower or the subsequent Memoriam dusted with the classy melodicism of A Canorous Quintet and successors This Ending, but all done with a touch that's somewhere between comfortably familiar and subtly unique - and you can now also add a touch of the tank-like onslaught of prime Grave, with everything given a gleaming CRUSH courtesy of the mixing by Tobbe Sillman (General Surgery) and mastered by the one and only Dan Swanö (Edge of Sanity) in the famous Unisound Studio in Sweden. This is what debut-album dreams are made of…or nightmares! The line up of DARKENED features corrent and former members of BOLT THROWER, MEMORIAM, GRAVE, THIS ENDING, etc. and the music is pure old school Death Metal !!
