Dutch death thrash veterans Legion of the Damned are releasing their new album, The Poison Chalice, on May 26 through Napalm Records. Give the video for the first single, “Beheading of the Godhead”, a watch here.
We’ll wrap up Monday with a new single from Svalbard. The performance video for “Eternal Spirits” can be seen below, and is available through Nuclear Blast. Sounds like they’re at work on a new studio album, so it’s safe to say more updates will be coming in the future.
Supergroups in extreme metal take on a whole other meaning when it’s comprised of Dave Witte, Mathias “Vreth” Lillmåns, and Phil Hall. Those names are synonymous with some of the best offerings extreme metal has to offer. And now with Morbikon, this supergroup crosses the threshold of 90s era Scandinavian black metal and melodic death metal on their debut Ov Mournful Twilight. To say this album rips would be a gross understatement, but with its membership this should surprise no one. Buke recently spoke to Phil “Landphil” Hall, who handles guitar and bass here, for a wide ranging chat about the band, the album, how it all came to be, and so much more. We now bring you this conversation in its entirety so grab your beverage of choice and enjoy.
Allegaeon have announced their new (old) vocalist, welcoming Ezra Haynes back to the group. Since Elements of the Infinite is still my favorite Allegaeon record, I’m fine with this. Catch them on the European road this coming November with Rivers of Nihil, Fallujah, and more.
Tribulation unveiled a new standalone single, “Hamartia”, the video for which can be seen below. That’s their first new material since last year’s Where The Gloom Becomes Sound, and precedes their upcoming European tour with Abbath and Watain.
