Progressive Death Metal Vets ZEALOTRY to Release 'At the Nexus of All Stillborn Worlds' on Unspeakable Axe in December
Two years after their last full-length, ZEALOTRY are back with their newest offering (and first with Unspeakable Axe Records), titled At the Nexus of All Stillborn Worlds. The album will be released on December 7.
This is progressive death
metal at its most uncompromising; dense with intricate riffs, elaborate
bass lines, mind-melting lead guitar work and more. Clean choral vocals
add a Timeghoul-ish aspect to certain songs; in other places,
bewildering effects occasionally will warp a track into an aural acid
trip. Elaborate structures occasionally peel back to reveal a
Chasm-inspired melodic development.
Featuring a member of
Chthe'ilist and influenced by a broad palette of death metal explorers
including At the Gates, Obliveon, Brutality, and Atheist, At the Nexus of Stillborn Worlds is a dizzying new peak in ZEALOTRY's 13-year
history. Experience eight tracks and nearly 43 minutes of some of the
most dense and rewarding music death metal has to offer, on CD, cassette
and digital platforms from Unspeakable Axe Records. Look for pre-orders
to be available next week.
Finland's CORPSESSED will break a four-year silence this fall with the release of Impetus of Death. Featuring eight crushing tracks of obscure death metal, Impetus of Death is due out November 23 on Dark Descent Records.
Impetus of Death track listing:
Impetus of the Dead
Endless Plains of Dust
Begetter of Doom
Starless Event Horizon
Many things have changed since the 2014 release of the band's acclaimed first full-length album, Abysmal Thresholds.
Main composer and guitarist Matti Mäkelä finally found some time to
resurrect his funeral doom project TYRANNY and release one crusher of an
album (also on Dark Descent) in 2015. A year later, CORPSESSED found a
new bassist in Tuomas Kulmala (LIE IN RUINS and PERDITION WINDS). And
over the course of four long years, CORPSESSED completed their second
full-length Impetus of Death, an album that manages to top it
its predecessor in terms of heaviness and brutality while taking their
epic sound a step further.
"We've never been that fast
composers" admits Mäkelä. "But the atmosphere must be there, the riffs
must be killer and everything has to be top notch. Plus, we knew we
needed to raise the bar this time. So all the band members contributed
and we had three separate demo sessions of almost all the songs. It was
quite time consuming but invaluable while thinking of the big picture,
even more, so we've once again recorded the album ourselves."
recordings took place from November 2017 to February 2018 in their
rehearsal place, with extra help from their label-mates LIE IN RUINS and
DESOLATE SHRINE, Dan Lowndes from Resonance Sound Studio took care of
the mastering last April.
album's title was inspired by the impression that, indeed, it is "death
itself that sets things in motion, be it the fear or lurking presence
of your own demise, or the death of a loved one. It can be seen as a
force that moves us and sets a timeline for our very existence. This
you can view as either something very grim and nihilistic, or on the
contrary, the very thing that gives your life a meaning or the power to
do anything. To create you must also destroy - 'solve et coagula'
right? - where death gives birth to something new.... This is life, and
death is an essential part of it. And the music we play, is DEATH METAL
so what's more fitting than this?"
Impetus of Death
is completed by a fitting and disturbing artwork by Mattias Frisk from
VANHELGD whom Matti met in 2015 in Copenhagen while playing the 'Heavy
Days in Doom Town' fest with PROFETUS.
told him to do what he felt would fit the music, but devoid of the
usual clichés like mystic figures in robes, goat-headed priests and nude
girls on altars," recalls Mäkelä. "We also wanted it to be in colors this time around as all our previous covers were in black and white."
put, the second full-length from CORPSESSED is brutal; although it
doesn't feel the need to break the 250 BPM barrier to show how tough it
is. Still rooted in the classic sound of the early 90's yet with its
own doomy touch, it's really Impetus of Death's uncanny ability
to bring forth a quite unique form of creepiness, almost cinematic in
places and quite claustrophobic that sets them apart. As Matti puts it
best, "What can I say? We like to keep things evil and ominous."

veteran underground death/grind warriors present their crushing second album!
Formed in 1990, MULE SKINNER stands as one of the first
death/grind outfits spawned by the infernal circles of New Orleans that
also gave birth to bands like Eyehategod, Crowbar, Soilent Green,
Exhorder and so on. Since their first demo, they proved to take no
prisoners with their tight, neck-breaking grindcore aggression.
"Airstrike" marks their merciless comeback 23 years after their devastating debut album "Abuse" and
it sounds like no time has passed since then, as they are even faster
and more crushing. Ballistic blast beats, caustic vocals and highly
addictive riffs make the 13 songs on this new full length a complete
aural warfare in the race to be one of the best grind albums of the
year, recommended to fans of Assuck, Terrorizer, Flesh Parade, early
Brutal Truth etc.
