Best of 2017: Zorn of Zornheym

Zorn

Sweden’s extreme metallers Zornheym released their debut full length, Where Hatred Dwells and Darkness Reigns, back in September on Non Serviam Records. Epic and grandiose are just a couple of words that describe the nine tracks found on this symphonic metal album, it’s heavy and extreme in precisely the right places but the atmosphere is the real star here and the super crisp production helps drive the point home. Zorn (lead guitarist) sent us his picks from 2017, head inside to see what he chose.  Continue reading

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

CANTO: New Katatonia video, updates from Demon Hunter, Alissa White-Gluz, and more

“Would you leave it all behind? Oh god it haunts my mind. Fated to journey blind.”

  • More throwback type stuff. Anybody ever care about Demon Hunter? Well if you did, you would also be excited to know that it appears a new album is planned for 2017.
  • I didn’t know much about Alissa White-Gluz before she joined Arch Enemy, but she’s definitely been in the spectrum since then. It was announced today that her solo project was recently signed on with Napalm Records. Let’s see what happens!
  • The first of a couple new videos I stumbled upon today. Here you can find Red Fang‘s new video for “Shadows”. These guys always entertain.
  • Cradle of Filth‘s Dani Filth will be taking to the big screen! Or… to some kind of screen! He will starring in a horror film called “Baphomet”, which seems quite appropriate.
  • Katatonia doing things is one of my favorite things to report. Fresh off their incredible new album, The Fall Of Hearts, they debuted a new video for “Shifts” today. Check it out.
