Danish Speed Metallers ENCYRCLE Releasing Debut on Unspeakable Axe Records June 2 / Exclusive Track Stream
ENCYRCLE is the kind of band that could make a true believer of even the most jaded modern metalhead. Hard-charging speed metal is juiced up further with black metal-esque blast beats, while the guitar solos and vocals are derived entirely from the oldest of old schools: melodic, powerful, and way over the top. They call what they do “Nocturnal Speed Metal” – which is the kind of label that suggests that they are not married wholly to any one genre, while still planting their roots in the recognizable. With a professional and powerful sound, and a grasp of songwriting and riffcraft that is well above the norm, ENCYRCLE aims to destroy when the album arrives on June 2, 2015 from Unspeakable Axe Records and Dark Descent.

Rest/less, the new album form Germany’s kings of modern hardcore CHOKING ON ILLUSIONS is out now on Bastardized Recordings. Based in Saarbrücken, Southwest Germany, CHOKING ON ILLUSIONS has created its own conception of modern hardcore; passionate, dynamic, and well apart from the autonomous masses. While maintaining a strong love and passion for all kinds of alternative music, CHOKING ON ILLUSIONS has been able to establish its name amongst a superior and growing pool of the hardcore scene. Positive reactions for debut album Guide me Home (2012) and the subsequently released free download EP Revive encouraged the quintet, led by singer Mario Strasser, to write new songs. The result is new album Rest/less. Buy it here.
Baptism – Funeral
Nihil Quam Vacuitas Ordinatum Est is the debut album from the quartet and is bound to impress with its heaviness and destructive insanity. The eight technically complex, yet infinitely memorable tracks results in a timeless piece of Death Metal. The CD can be ordered here.
Nihil Quam Vacuitas Ordinatum Est was five years in the making and well worth the wait. The band has recorded and mixed the album in their own studio, even making some of its own equipment to capture the sound exactly as intended. The painstaking effort was driven by passion, energy, and creativity, collectively harnessed to ensure that mediocrity was crushed in the quest to create something relatively unique without abandoning familiar (and beloved) Death Metal constructs. Nihil Quam Vacuitas Ordinatum Est will undoubtedly appeal to fans of Gorguts, Ulcerate, Hate Eternal, Deathspell Omega, Human Remains, Ved Buens Ende and other genre visionaries. Confidence and determination permeates the sound of this debut, as AD NAUSEAM succeeds in capturing a potent mixture of darkness, iniquity, and extreme aggression. To discover Nihil Quam Vacuitas Ordinatum Est is to discover a rare Death Metal gem.

Chicago Instrumental Dark Music Band THE KAHLESS CLONE is offering a track from new EP An Endless Loop for free download. Download “Leave This Place With Me” at this location.
An Endless Loop was released March 17. Stream and/or purchase the EP at this location.
Featuring NOVEMBERS DOOM guitarist Vito Marchese, the EP is a gripping musical journey that forges the vibe of dark metal with the sonic landscape and emotional buildups of post-rock. THE KAHLESS CLONE was started by Marchese as an outlet for some of the instrumental songs he had been writing. Marchese secured the talents of Zach Libbe, Garry Naples, Andy Bunk, and Ben Johnson to help him record An Endless Loop. Recording, mixing, and mastering was done at Belle City Sound in Racine, WI by Chris Wisco, who was able to properly capture the mood and atmosphere of the songs. The band is currently booking live dates/tours to help promote it.
