Oktobrska blackmetalska brezkompromisnost
18. oktobra bo Orto Bar deležen prav posebne, a temačne časti - vračajo se Taake.
Norveški black metal kult, ki tako besedilno kot glasbeno že od začetka ruši določene norme tega drugače precej nepredvidljivega in netradicionalnega žanra ekstremne glasbe, že od zgodnjih devetdesetih let buri duhove. Hkrati surov in mističen kot pokrajina, iz katere izhaja, je Taake (norveško: megla) utelešenje divjega duha frontmana in ustvarjalnega jedra, Hoesta. V sedmih albumih je možakar ustvaril tako klasične black metal stvaritve, kot mnoga odstopanja od formule - vsi seveda pomnimo pesem Myr, v kateri je uporabil med drugim tudi banjo. Trenutni album, Kong Vinter, ki je izšel konec lanskega leta, je premik v bolj hipnotične black metal vode, ki pa jih - tako na ploščku kot v živo - popestri umazanija in klasičnih Hoestov ''UGH!''.
Zadnja leta pa svet navdušuje švicarski black metal duo, Bölzer. Ime ima več prevodov, a bend pravi, da gre za napad sile kaosa, sile smrti, sile življenja. Je neusmerjena, brez vnaprej predvidljivih posledic. To ne pomeni, da je nastop ali glasba Bölzer kaos in velik ''šundr'' - je moč, je energija, je nekaj, kar morate videti in doživeti.
One Tail One Head stavijo na razvrat in prvinskost zgodnjega black metala, ki se spogleduje tako s ''sex, drugs, rock'n'roll'' kot z mističnostjo in temačnostjo. Temu dodajte dejstvo, da bend tvorijo člani zasedb Behexen, Black Majesty ter Altaar in to, da izdajajo predvsem EP-je, potem vam je jasno, da boste doživeli en orgazmični FOAD.
Koncert bodo odprli Slegest, norveški blackened doom metalci, ki so do zdaj izdali dva odlična albuma.


TAAKE

Bio:
TaakeTaake (Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈtoːkə]) is the solo vehicle of Ulvhedin Høst (Ørjan Stedjeberg), also known as Høst or Hoest. The band was formed in Bergen, Hordaland, Norway. During 1993, originally billed as Thule, Hoest proceeded to issue a brace of demos in 1993’s ‘Der Vinterstormene Rast’ and 1994’s ‘Omfarnet Av Svarte Vinger’ prior to adopting the new title of Taake. Billed as Taake, Hoest, together with Svartulv and Dim, the group cut the 1995 cassette ‘Manndaudsvinter’. A three track 7” EP, issued by Hoest’s own Mosegrodd Productions, arrived the same year with Hoest handling vocals, bass and guitar and Svartulv retained as drummer.
Taake’s next move was to release the debut album ‘Nattestid Ser Porten Vid’ through the Wounded Love label. For these recordings session drummerTundra (a.k.a. Hans Helander) of Frostmoon and Tundra was employed.
A second album, ‘Over Bjoergvin Graater Himmerik’, witnessed the induction of a brand new band unit comprising of Gigantomachy guitarist C. Corax, Vendigeit bassist / keyboard player Keridwen and drummer Mutt of Gaahlskagg, Trelldom and Sigfader. However, studio time would be interrupted when Corax was imprisoned. The band finalised the recordings upon Corax’s release from jail in late December of 2000.
Corax would leave the fold in August of 2001 and Mutt followed suit in January of the following year. Nevertheless, Hoest regrouped for a tour of Germany, Taake now including Hoest on vocals and bass, Keridwen on guitar, Drakkhian of French acts Griffar and Black Dementia on second guitar and drummer T.H. Gjengedal.
In 2004, Taake signed a deal with Dark Essence Records and recorded their third album ‘Hordalands doedskvad’ in Grieghallen studios. ‘Doedskvad’ was released in 2005, again with Corax on guitar.
In 2006, Hoest was imprisoned for a period for assault (Hoest’s exact words were “I was reported to the police by an individual whose face I so elegantly rearranged due to his unacceptable behaviour”) putting Taake’s progress on hold.
With Hoest out of prison, Taake embarked upon a European tour with Koldbrann and Urgehal. The fourth full-length Taake album, simply titled ‘Taake’, was released in late 2008 after work was completed upon Hoest’s release from prison. An EP ‘Svartekunst’ was also released in early 2008, but was not intended as a preview of the newer full length album.

BÖLZER

Bio:
BölzerBölzer are a Swiss extreme metal band that formed in Zürich in 2008. The band have said that the meaning behind the name is "a powerful force or blow or strike that has no regard for the consequences or the repercussions. And in that sense it’s not directed either, it’s just a chaotic strike of energy…. a force of chaos, and a force of life and death and anything." To date they have released three EPs, and their debut studio full-length album Hero was released on November 25, 2016 on Iron Bonehead Productions.
The band's 2013 EP Aura generated substantial acclaim from music critics and metal fans. It has been frequently described as one of the best metal releases of 2013 by sites such as NPR Music and Stereogum, despite its brief length. NPR have described the band as "one of 2014’s biggest extreme metal success stories".

Oktobrski čas za power metal

Hladnejši dnevi, a vroča srca power metalcev - tako že zdaj lahko opišemo prihajajoči power metal event, ki bo Sloveniji predstavil kultne nemške nažigače Primal Fear in legendarne ameriške power metal norce Riot V.
Primal Fear so nemški odgovor na Judas Priest, so Accept na potenco, so Manowar na speedu in so tako metal, da gotovo najdejo zase novo mesto v periodnem sistemu elementov v sekciji težkih kovin. Bend je 21 let nazaj ustanovil nekdanji član kultnih Gamma Ray, ki je potem šel celo na avdicijo Judas Priest, Ralph Scheepers. A bogovi metala so hoteli, da Ralph hodi svojo pot in tako je nastal kultni nemški power metal bend, ki je Slovenijo že obiskal, gotovo pa je pustil svoj tevtonski pečat tudi drugod po Evropi in po svetu. Ralph pa ni sam - z njim je eden in edini bas kitarski norec, Mat Sinner, vodja kultnih Sinner. V bendu pa so še Tom Naumann (Sinner), Alex Beyrodt (Jorn) ter Francesco Jovino (Edge Of Forever). Njihovi komadi so metal, njihov življenjski način je metal, vse v zvezi s Primal Fear je METAL!
Z njimi pa bodo žgali eni najstarejših in najmočnejših bendov na svetu, ameriški Riot, ki so zdaj - ker so že 5. inkarnacija tega benda - znani kot Riot V. Avtorji albumov, kot sta Privilege Of Power ter Thundersteel, so eni najbolj znanih na sceni. Gre za odličen bend z vrhunskimi pesmimi in odličnimi glasbeniki, med njimi so najstarejši član zasedbe Riot, kitarist Mike Flyntz, basist Don Stavern, ki je nekoč igral v kultnih S. A. Slayer, kitarist Nick Lee iz Moon Tooth, vokalist Todd Michael Hall iz Jack Starr's Burning Starr ter bobnar Frank Gilchriest iz Liege Lord in Virgin Steel. Fuckin' A! Predstavili bodo svojo odlično vizijo ameriškega power metala in tudi trenutni album Armor Of Light.


PRIMAL FEAR

Bio:
Primal FearIf you’re talking about today’s European top metal acts the discussion is heading straight towards Primal Fear. Former Gamma Ray vocalist Ralf Scheepers and bassist/vocalist Mat Sinner, two of the most respected German metal musicians founded the band in late 1997. They recorded their first Primal Fear songs for the Japan based record company JVC Records and signed a deal with JVC for their debut album some weeks later. Germany’s best kept secret was soon a target for most of the European record companies and the band signed to Nuclear Blast Records in early 1998 for the rest of the world. The debut album, simply called Primal Fear was released in March 1998 and entered the German Media Control album charts straight ahead on position 48, soon followed by chart success in Japan. After touring together with Running Wild and Hammerfall. The second PF album Jaws Of Death entered the German Charts on position 49 in July 1999, followed by their first headlining World Tour. incl. countries like Brazil, Japan and of course Europe. A kind of PF hysteria broke free and surprised all metalheads, who couldn’t understand, what kind of thunder was raging above them! In this fantastic mood, PF started the songwriting for Nuclear Fire. The result was their heaviest and strongest album so far. Typical PF trademarks like Ralf’s outstanding voice, twin guitar solos, killer riffs and a catchy choruses marks Nuclear Fire as a classic. Nuclear Fire has set new standards and charted in Germany Pos. 37, Italy Pos. 71, Switzerland Pos. 77 and Japan Pos. 23! The following headlining European Tour was a huge success and Primal Fear were named as one of the hottest live bands. PF played 10 countries with packed audiences and a fantastic response with co-headliners “Children of Bodom”. Their 4th album Black Sun released on April 29th 2002 The album was mixed this time at the Sonic Ranch in El Paso/Texas. Black Sun charted in Germany on Pos. 55. The following tour through Europe and 11 countries was a huge success, followed by a fantastic and successful tour through South America in December 2002 with the highlight show in Sao Paulo/Brazil at the Via Funchal.
In April/May 2003 the band headed to their first US & Canada tour to be a part of the Metal Gods Tour together with Halford, Testament, Immortal and others, with drummer Randy Black. The long awaited first DVD The History Of Fear was released in September 2003 including a superb digipak packaging with fantastic reviews by the metal press. During this time, the Metal Commando was actually in the recording studio and started the sessions for their new album Devils Ground. A video clip was shot in Stockholm/Sweden for the first single of the album and the all time metal hymn “Metal Is Forever”! After touring, the band started the songwriting for their sixth album Seven Seals and this album was a new start and a fresh breath to reload the sound of the band. The album was mixed in the legendary Warehouse Studio in Vancouver/Canada by mixer Mike Frazer. Two video clips were shot for the songs Evil Spell and Seven Seals. The band toured together with Helloween for 3 month through Europe, followed by an extensive tour in Japan. Mat Sinner’s book biography The Book Of Seven Seals was released in the middle of the tour and the great packaging was sold out in a short time.
At the peak of their career, Primal Fear ended up the long time partnership with Nuclear Blast & JVC Records and signed a worldwide multi album deal with Frontiers Records. Both Nuclear Blast and JVC released a final BEST OF album Metal Is Forever, which was a huge success in Japan and stayed for three month in the Burrn Album Charts.
The first album for Frontiers Records was released in September 2007 and named “New Religion”. Epica’s lead singer Simone Simons was invited to studio to sing the first duet in Primal Fear recording history, the song Everytime It Rains and the alltime favorite “Fighting The Darkness. Magnus Karlsson from Sweden was introduced as the band’s new guitarist and the band embarked on their “10 Years Of Metal” 2008 anniversary tour! The next studio album named under the mysterious banner of “16.6” was released worldwide in May 2009. “16.6” charted in Germany on Pos. 46 of the album charts and the following 16.6 World Tour was a great success incl. shows in Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, South America, USA, Canada & Europe. A video clip was released for the song “Six Times Dead”. Some shows in the USA and Europe were recorded and ended up in the first official LIVE album “Live In The USA” and the concert DVD “All Over The World” incl. a playtime of 3 hours and total metal mayhem, video clips and backstage scenes. A must for Primal Fear fans, followers & supporters!
UNBREAKABLE was the next strike – released on 20 January 2012 incl. the video-clip / single “BAD GUYS WEAR BLACK”. Unbreakable charted in Germany #31, Sweden #48, Finland #50, Japan #27, Austria #74, Switzerland #51, Netherland Top 200 and in the US Billboard Heatseekers for the first time on #44. A new video clip was released for the opening track of the album “STRIKE” with now more than 1 million YouTube views.
After some very serious songwriting sessions and an intense pre-production sin 2014, the band started to record the new album “Delivering The Black” with producer Mat Sinner. The band moved to Denmark to finish the album with acclaimed producer/engineer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Pretty Maids, Amaranthe) handling the mix. “When Death Comes Knocking” and the 10 minute opus “One Night In December”, spiced with big orchestral arrangements and complex sound designs. DTB charted in Germany on the highest ever position #13 followed by 10 more countries and the “Eagles & Lions” World Tour”.
With all the new influences Primal Fear set the level high for their next production. Already the song writing process was very promising, the band released their so far most successful album “Rulebreaker”. Aside of another spectacular Top 20 chart success, Rulebreaker was the first chart entry of the band ever in the US billboard charts. The band shoot video clips for the new band classic “The End Is Near” and “Angels Of Mercy”. The following world tour included 10 countries in South America, the US & Canada, Japan, Australia and 15 countries in Europe with around 120 shows and festivals, documented on the third video clip for the album “Rulebreaker”. Primal Fear recorded their hometown show in Stuttgart for their next live album, DVD & BluRay named “Angels Of Mercy” released in June 2017. Even “Angels Of Mercy (Live)” charted in a lot of countries and the band released in the meantime the double CD compilation “Best Of Fear” in November 2017 feat. four new songs incl. the new single “If Looks Could Kill” and one CD with all their most successful metal tracks and the second CD with all their epic tracks of the Frontiers Records time. After a little break, the song writing for their next album was scheduled and the band recorded most of the album in the studio of Jacob Hansen in Denmark with producer Mat Sinner. Packed with songs of crushing energy (“New Rise”, “Blood, Sweat & Fear”, “Hail To The Fear”) a superb orchestrated ballad (“Supernova”) and of course an over 8min epic extravaganza “Eye Of The Strom” – the band is ready for another trip around the world, recorded two video clips for “King Of Madness” and “The Ritual” plus the power monster and first song unleashed from the album “Hounds Of Justice” and the metal commando mean business. Ralf’s trademark vocals are more present than ever, big thundering production and a fantastic team work set the new level for future Primal Fear productions.

RIOT V

Bio:
Riot VThe story started more than 40 years ago in Brooklyn, New York City, USA. Back then, several musicians came together under the banner of RIOT – and they started to write metal history together as one of the first pioneers of US power metal. Despite several obstacles cropping up over the years caused by both voluntary, and sadly, forced line-up changes - the metal institution is still active today! After founding member Mark Reale passed away in 2012, in his honour the band added the Roman number V to their name. Now known as RIOT V, this amendment also heralded in the new, fifth era of the band’s history. New singer Todd Michael Hall (since 2013) is the fifth person occupying this revered post – and he’s integrated perfectly into the band since his very first assignment, their 2014 album “Unleash The Fire.” Today, he is not only responsible for the incredibly strong vocals but also for the majority of the lyrics writing. Musically, RIOT V have bestowed on us a small history lesson in their brand new studio album “Armor Of Light” tracing right back to their roots, and for fans of the legendary “Thundersteel” album from 1988 - their mouths will already be watering at the prospect! For the new record, the band has brought everything to the table that has distinguished RIOT since the very beginning, venerating their 1988 classic’s 30th anniversary on the highest level. Enthusiasts can expect aggressive songs, but perfectly formed in the enthralling melodies. "Armor Of Light" includes everything that we might expect from this band, explains main songwriter and bassist Don Van Stavern: “It's a well-rounded Riot record; it's got the burners, the groovers and some rockers! Loud, fast and aggressive with great melodies!” There is no doubt about that, considering the band's influence on the scene at large. Only a short while ago RIOT were inducted into the Anaheim "Heavy Metal Hall of Fame", honouring their influence on the scene and countless bands.
Chris “The Wizard” Collier (METAL CHURCH, FLOTSAM & JETSAM, SLIPKNOT and KORN etc.) produced RIOT V’s new masterpiece – and has achieved in developing the band’s perfect sound, an ideal fusion. Thus, not only the songs, but also the entire sonic characteristics of the record have a very unique touch to them. Mariusz Gandzel (CRYSTAL VIPER) fabricated the stylistically flawless artwork.

Oktobrska agonija v Ljubljani
26. oktobra se bodo v Ljubljani v Kino Šiški ustavili newyorški Life Of Agony.
Life Of Agony je ena tistih zasedb, ki je zaslovela v prvi polovici devetdesetih let prejšnjega stoletja ob boku newyorškim bendom, kot so bili Biohazard, Madball in Vision Of Disorder. Vsi trije omenjeni bendi (ter Life Of Agony kot taki) so takrat pod okriljem založbe Roadrunner Records z albumi Urban Discipline, Set It Off ter Vision Of Disorder prodirali v svetovni mainstream, mešanica urbano realističnih besedil, neuničljivega newyorškega groova in resnično energičnih koncertov je našla pot v srca mnogih. V tem oziru pa so Life Of Agony gotovo eden bolj izstopajočih bendov, saj so združili groove newyorškega HC-ja novejše ere (v smislu Madball in Biohazard) s temačnostjo enih in edinih Type O Negative ter Vision Of Disorder.
Takrat so LOA presegli vsa pričakovanja z albumom River Runs Red, refleksijo urbane realnosti, ki je bila mračna, pesimistična in izjemno heavy. S hiti, kot so This Time, Through And Through, Method Of Groove ali pa Underground, so ostajali na vrhu lestvic, v živo pa je album zadel še toliko bolj, saj je bend z vsakim koncertom vedno dal vse od sebe.
A LOA niso nikoli počivali na lovorikah. Tudi poznejši albumi so zadeli žebljico v glavico, čeprav je sčasoma status klasike obdržal le prej omenjeni album River Runs Red.
Bend je vmes doživljal manjšo krizo, prenehal igrati, se nato vrnil močnejši, kar dokazuje tudi zadnji album A Place Where There's No More Pain, na katerem se med drugim predstavlja tudi nova bobnarka Veronica Bellino, ustaljena postava, ki pa jo tvorijo basist Alan Robert (znan tudi kot avtor stripov), kitarist Joey Z. in pevka Mina Caputo, pa še toliko bolj žge. In v živo gotovo bo - to je gotovo koncert, ki ga ne smete zamuditi.
Vstopnice so že na voljo.


LIFE OF AGONY

Bio:
Life of AgonyLife of Agony emerged from the New York music scene in the early '90s with one of the most distinctive sounds in its genre. Best known for its 1993 metal/crossover debut "River Runs Red" (Roadrunner Records), named by Rolling Stone as being one of the "100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time" the band instantly built a die-hard, cult following. For over two decades, the group toured relentlessly all over the world, sharing stages with the biggest names in rock, including Metallica, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Foo Fighters, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. LOA went onto release two more studio albums for Roadrunner: "Ugly" ('95) and "Soul Searching Sun" ('97), before signing to major label Sony/Epic Records in 2005 to record "Broken Valley" with producer Greg Fidelman (Slipknot, Metallica). Life of Agony has sold over one million albums to date.
Last year, LOA released its 5th studio album, titled "A Place Where There's No More Pain". Rolling Stone hailed it as "One of the Most Anticipated Albums of the Year" ( Read Article > ) Life of Agony's "A Place Where There's No More Pain" is available now from Napalm Records. The album was produced by Matt Brown & Life of Agony and mastered by Ted Jensen (Alice in Chains, Machine Head, Deftones).
On January 22, 2018, Life Of Agony welcomed new drummer Veronica Bellino into the band, best known for her work with Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Jeff Beck, DMC, Richie Sambora/Orianthi, and Carmine Appice/Slamm. The 2018 Life of Agony lineup features vocalist Mina Caputo, guitarist Joey Z, bassist Alan Robert, and drummer Veronica Bellino.
LIFE OF AGONY has announced dates for a headlining trek called "Rise of the Underground Tour 2018" spanning the USA and Europe. The shows will begin with two sold-out, hometown warm-up gigs April 18th & 19th at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, and conclude November 2nd as headliners of The Sound of Revolution Festival in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
"With 2018 marking the 25th anniversary of our debut album, we are just so incredibly grateful to our fans for sticking with us all these years and wanted to do something really special for them. We’re breaking out some old fan favorites that we’ve never played before live and hitting cities we haven’t been to in over a decade," says bassist Alan Robert. "You really can’t beat the crazy energy of a packed, sweaty, tiny club, like we used to play back in the day, so we decided to include some very intimate rooms on this tour, along with the bigger venues, to feel that deep emotional connection again with our die-hard fans. It’s gonna be insane."

BILLY BIO

Bio:
Billy BioBilly Graziadei-Biohazard, Powerflo, Firewater Sound Studios
Music has always been the central, unifying force in Billy Graziadei’s life. Early musical training took place on the Graziadei family’s old, forever out-of-tune upright piano. Billy’s desire to explore all forms and variations of music did not balance well with the authoritative doctrine employed by most of his music teachers. Rebelling from this rigid view of music, Billy began studying music under the guidance of his Grandfather and Uncle, both of whom he had always admired.
Billy continued to study piano and expand his musical vocabulary while growing up, finding inspiration in so many forms of music but it wasn’t until he stumbled into the underground world of punk-rock music that his musical taste was really sparked into growth.
Immersing himself in the sounds, perspective, and culture of the punk underground, Billy’s desire to create new, innovative music led him to the late 80’s hardcore scene in New York City. Sunday matinee hardcore shows at CBGB’s…Friday night metal shows at Brooklyn’s Lamour rock club. It was here that Billy found his musical home and it was here that Billy helped form a band that would take the metal/hard-core scene by storm….it was the birth of BIOHAZARD.
BIOHAZARD combined the urban sounds of hard-core, metal and rap with scorching lyrics describing the forces at work in our modern urban lives. With an impressive career spanning over 20 years with 10 albums (on both indie and major labels), the band sold over 5 million records. With an audio engineering degree and years of experience recording Biohazard, Graziadei opened what would eventually become Firewater Studios. This studio became an incubator for Billy’s creativity, where he continues to cultivate his talent while producing up and coming bands.
After years of touring, collecting experiences and stories to fill a lifetime, Graziadei ventured off to start a new group known as SUICIDE CITY.
Suicide City was born in the cold winter of 2005. Graziadei brought together Jennifer Arroyo (ex-Kittie) on bass, singer Karl Bernholtz and guitarist Aj Marchetta from South Florida’s The Groovenicks along with Long Island’s skin basher Danny Lamagna. Drawing from his early Biohazard experiences, the “old” school musician applied his DIY work ethic that propelled his first band forward in the early days. Without the help of a label, distribution or management, Suicide City released their ep entitled, “Not my year” and sold over 8000 copies to date. With constant touring with bands such as Danzig, Mindless Self Indulgence, Taking Back Sunday, Gwar, The Horrorpops and Otep to name a few, the musicians have been paid their dues earned fans the real way, by kicking ass on stage! Suicide City went onto release their second studio effort on The End Records in 2005. The band began touring less and less and eventually split up thereby freeing up Graziadei for a Biohazard reunion with the original members in 2008.
In early 2009 Boston hardcore band Blood for Blood approached Billy about joining the band in replacement for their second vocalist and guitarist. As a fan of the band and having watched the band come up since their inception, Graziadei joined the band and a world tour was announced. Spending most of the next several years touring with both bands, Billy found himself inundated with creative energy and would spent endless time in the studio working on new music, ideas and material. The Biohazard reunion eventually found the band back in the studio to work on an album that would eventually be entitled, “Reborn in Defiance”. Soon after it’s release and after some internal drama within Blood for Blood, Graziadei left the band to dedicate his full attention to Biohazard.
After the departure of Evan Seinfeld from Biohazard, Graziadei put even more energy into rebuilding the band and with the addition of Scott Roberts on bass and 2ndvocal duty, the band was accepted worldwide!
In 2016 Billy partnered up with long time friend Senen “Sendog” Reyes from the legendary band Cypress Hill. Sen and Billy joined forces with Downset guitarist Roy Lozano, Fear Factory bassist Christian Olde-Wolbers and Brazilian drummer Fernando Schaefer. The group released their debut self titled album Powerflo in June 2017. Graziadei continues to work on new Powerflo as they tour the world supporting their new venture.

All Hail the YetiAll Hail The Yeti channel a groove that chills and captivates. It’s this kind of succinct bludgeoning that turned them into one of Hollywood’s most revered modern metal bands evoking the likes of Acid Bath and Pantera with a healthy dose of Mötley Crüe-style excess and infectiousness. It also fuels their self-titled debut now reissued on minus HEAD Records. Since bursting to life in 2006, the group has toured with everybody from In This Moment and Hollywood Undead to Motionless In White and 36 Crazyfists, carving out a fervent diehard fan base in the process.

Blackmetalski dan mrtvih
Če se v Sloveniji še ni zgodilo, da je dan spomina na mrtve hkrati dan koncerta odličnih ekstremno metalskih zasedb, ki pojejo predvsem o temi in smrti, potem se bo to spremenilo letos.
1. novembra bodo namreč dan, zavit v dež, meglo, dolge procesije na pokopališčih, še bolj popestrili najprej finski manijaki Horna. Aktivni že od leta 1993 so do zdaj izdali 9 albumov, njihova glasba pa je primitivna, zla, težka in mučna. Ravno prav za 1. november.
Z velikim dodatnim veseljem pa najavljamo prihod poljskih temačnih ekstremnežev Blaze Of Perdition, ki v duhu zasedb Mgla, Over The Voids ipd. združujejo death in black metal, pri tem pa brezkompromisno utelešajo Pekel. Trenutno predstavljajo odlični aktualni album Conscious Darkness.
Kot ima pentagram pet krakov, bo tudi koncert, ki se bo odvil v kranjskem Trainstation Subartu, predstavil pet bendov. Dva smo že predstavili, sledijo pa še norveški Iskald, ki združujejo strašljive melodije in brezkompromisni thrash, maniakalni death blekkerji Crest Of Darkness, črno mašo pa bodo okrog 19.30 začeli Black Faith, satanikk black metalci iz Italije.


HORNA

Bio:
HornaLegion Horna was born in the year of 1993 through the diabolic union of Shatraug and Moredhel. In 1994 Horna was joined by drummer Gorthaur and first demo “Varjoissa” was created in 1995. After two more or less successful live appearances during spring 1996 Nazgul joined the congregation on vocals leading the way to recording of “Hiidentorni” which eventually became Horna’s debut album. Following albums “Kohti Yhdeksän Nousua”, “Haudankylmyyden Mailla”, “Perimä Vihassa ja Verikostossa” and “Sudentaival” were made with the same line-up, not to forget EP releases of the same years, until Nazgul left the band through transition to become Satanic Warmaster.
In 2002 Horna was joined by new vocalist Corvus who remained one of the leading forces of the band for nearly a decade, being part of all the albums through the years along with Shatraug, when some of the more permanent members were not part of all recording sessions. Since 2002 Horna also became a dominant force with live desecrations all over the world, having raided the continents with European and North-American tours. Despite many line-up changes Horna has always remained strong under the guidance of the only remaining original member Shatraug.
Through-out the years the lyrics of Horna ventured from harsh anti-christian hatred, paganism and fairytales to severe exaltations of the occult, the mysteries of the dark side of mankind and Satanism - from youthful outbursts of anger to ever more maturing inner enlightenment.
In 2010 the ever-changing line-up had another turmoil with Corvus leaving the band and the previously joined session vocalist Spellgoth took over. In 2012 our long-time live bassist Qraken decided to focus on his own bands and Hex Inferi was recruited. Through the years nothing has stopped us and there is no end to predict yet either.

BLAZE OF PERDITION

Bio:
Blaze of PerditionBlaze Of Perdition was born in 2007, spawned by XCIII after death of Perdition, which had to be put to rest due to growing differences between its creators. Xaos Oblivion (voc) left the band. Along with remaining Perdition members, XCIII joined forces with Sonneillon and Ashgan and in this lineup, 3 songs for a split with Pseudogod were recorded. The material, due to many problems, was released in 2009 by NCU/Nachtgnosis and Putrid Prophet Prod. During this period of silence, the band was spreading the word through live rituals along with Marduk, Koldbrann, Blacklodge, Horna, Vorkreist, Zemial, Watain, Infernal War, etc.
In 2008 Blaze of Perdition recorded debut album Towards The Blaze Of Perdition and again, after many delays it was finally unleashed in the beginning of 2010, once again by Putrid Prophet Prod.
A little later the band recorded the 7 "EP entitled The Burning Will Of Expansion and released it via well known Polish label Pagan Records. In the meantime, N.K. left the band and Vizun, known from many bands such as Abusiveness, Deivos, Moon (POL), etc. took up his drumming duties.
Second opus entitled The Hierophant was recorded at the turn of 2010 & 2011, mixed and mastered at infamous Necromorbus Studio (by Tore Stjerna) and released in October 2011 (Pagan Records).

ISKALD

Bio:
IskaldFounding members Simon Larsen and Aage Krekling started up Iskald in early 2005 in Sortland. After their first demo, the ”Northern Twilight” EP was released some months later. It was limited to 400 ex and is now completely sold out. In late 2006 both Simon and Aage moved to Bodø and continued the band activities from there. A temporarily new live line-up was requited and material for their upcoming debut was written.
In march 2007 their debut ”Shades of Misery” was the first album to be released on Indie Recordings ever, resulting in a huge feedback and interest from all over the world. This lead to several live-shows the next months, in which reached its peak with the Inferno Festival 2008.
A couple of months later they traveled to Berlin to record their second full-length album "Revelations of Reckoning Day". This marked a start of a new era in many ways. The album became a success and lead to the first European tour and the legendary show at Hovefestivalen. From that day Ben Hansen – Guitars and Kenneth Henriksen – Bass joined in to complete the live line-up. After several concerts and tours, Kenneth decided to leave the horde in late 2014. Was later replaced by Simon’s brother, Isak Larsen on bass.
But in between tours and live shows they composed the next album, “The Sun I Carried Alone”. It was recorded in the autumn of 2010 in Oslo and Bodø, and was later released in February 2011. This was their third release with Indie Recordings and it led to signing a new contract with them. The album turned out as another milestone and highlights included a Norwegian tour, a 22 days European tour and playing the main stage at Inferno Festival, early 2013.
After that they focused on writing new songs. This eventually resulted in “Nedom og Nord”, which was released in march 2014. This was their third album mixed/mastered by 210 Studios and their fourth release on Indie Recordings. Finally their first LP release was printed as well. A three week european tour with Kampfar and Hate was done in April that same year.
The response was yet again massive and new important steps were made.
Then there would a little break for that “life” that happened. But during this time new material was on the rise, and after weeks and months with intense work they entered their own studio in Bodø July 2017, to record “Innhøstinga”. And this is what followed...

Tehnično deathmetalski november z Beyond Creation
8. novembra, samo teden dni po black metalski maši s Horno in pet dni pred obiskom Aborted/Cryptopsy/Cytotoxin/Benighter, bodo Ljubljano obiskali kanadski tehnični death metalci, Beyond Creation - in kot taki zasedbi pritiče, ne bodo sami.
Beyond Creation so ime, ki se v krogu modernega death metala izgovarja z največjim spoštovanjem. Predstavniki kanadske ekstremne scene, kamor štejemo še Gorguts, Into Eternity, Cryptopsy, Neuraxis itd., so svojo pot pričeli leta 2005, do danes pa izdali tri odlične albume. Če obožujete death metal zanimiv, razgiban, progresiven, brutalen in kompleksen, potem so Beyond Creation prva izbira.
Poleg bodo prav tako zanimivi brutalneži Gorod iz Francije, varovanci kultne založbe Unique Leader Records, katerih že šest album, Aethra, izide oktobra.
Entheos so tudi nujni sestavni del tega odličnega paketa, saj ameriško zasedbo tvorijo člani zasedb Animals As Leaders, Animosity ter The Faceless. Še vedno promovirajo album Dark Future.
Koncert bodo odprli Brought By Pain, kanadski death metalci, ki jih tvorijo - zanimivo! - člani zasedb Beyond Creation ter Crimson Skull.!


BEYOND CREATION

Bio:
Beyond CreationBeyond Creation saw the light of day in 2005 in Montreal, Canada but it wasn’t until 2010 that the band was ready to hit the stage with their original line-up consisting of Simon Girard, Kevin Chatré, Guyot Bégin-Benoît and Dominic ‘Forest’ Lapointe.
A year later, they self-released their debut full-length album "The Aura", which quickly became a highlight in the genre. Since then, Beyond Creation has been known as the progressive, innovative and exciting new metal sound of their homeland, Quebec.
In late 2012, the band had Philippe Boucher (Ex-First Fragment, Incandescence, Chthe'ilist, Décombres) take Guyot's place on drums.
Things started moving at a faster pace in 2013 as they joined Season Of Mist Record Label, re-releasing "The Aura” and touring North America, but also Japan. In 2014, they performed several shows, festivals and tours in North America before the release of their second album ‘’Earthborn Evolution’’ which had them end the year in Australia and Japan again.
The next year started with the addition of Hugo Doyon-Karout (Brought By Pain, Equipoise, Conflux Collective) as the new bassist.
From 2015 to 2017, they focused on touring as much as possible on the ‘’Earthborn Evolution’’ album cycle compiling 3 North American tours, 3 European tours, countless shows in Canada, appearances in Mexico, Colombia and Dubaï, sharing the stage with Arch Enemy, Hate Eternal, Misery Index, Rivers of Nihil, Gorod, Psycroptic, Entheos, Obscura, Revocation, Virvum and Dying Fetus among plenty of other heavy weights. They also took part in multiple large-scale music festivals such as Hellfest, UK Tech-Fest, Montebello Rockfest, Heavy MTL, Knights of Metal and Damnation Festival.
In 2018, Beyond Creation recorded their highly-anticipated 3Rd album ‘’Algorythm’’ which is set to be released this fall. Additionally, they have performed on the 70 000 Tons of Metal Cruise, Trois-Rivières Metalfest, Modified Ghost Festival and Montebello Rockfest while they were preparing new content for their fans and planning their touring schedule for the ‘’Algorythm’’ album cycle.
Stay tuned, Beyond Creation will continue to crush the metal scene and have a lot more good news to share with you in the coming months!

GOROD

Bio:
GorodAfter the critically acclaimed album «A Maze Of recycled Creeds» and the incredible thrashy EP «Kiss The Freak», recorded for their latest European tour with US thrash bands, GOROD will release its new opus «ÆTHRA» October 19th on Overpowered Records… and one thing is sure… this new masterpiece will make everyone agree !
Produced and recorded by Mathieu PASCAL, Gorod mastermind, in his Bud Studio, mixed at Dugout Studio by the outstanding Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, Behemoth, Decapitated, In Flames…) and mastered by Lawrence Mackrory at Obey Mastering (Decapitated, Nightrage…), «ÆTHRA» announces itself as the inevitable metal album for this end of the year.
This is not just a continuation of what the previous album offered, but an improvement in terms of production, songwriting and arrangements.
With a successful international experience, GOROD demonstrates once again its ability to write catchy songs with disconcerting ease.
With «ÆTHRA», the band transports us into a more tragic and melancholic universe than its previous releases, in a completely new darkness, while preserving what made its typicity and success: its incomparable groove, its remarkable dexterity, its relentless technicality and more and more catchy compositions.
As a real live band, where they top the game with ultimate power and precision, GOROD will tour through Europe this fall to promote this new album!

ENTHEOS

Bio:
EntheosDark Future [Spinefarm Records] may be the second full-length album from Entheos, but it feels like the first for the California quartet—Chaney Crabb [vocals], Navene Koperweis [drums], Evan Brewer [bass], and Travis LeVrier [guitar]. As far as technical heavy music goes, the group’s powerhouse pedigree remains unparalleled. A veritable who’s who of the scene, Evan and Navene not only co-founded underground luminaries Animosity, but the bassist and drummer served in the ranks of The Faceless and Animals As Leaders, respectively. As Chaney, Navene, and Evan toured behind Entheos’s acclaimed 2016 debut, The Infinite Nothing, the lineup solidified with the addition of Travis—who had recently departed Scale The Summit.
“To me, Dark Future is like our first real release,” affirms Chaney. “Travis coming into the band was the perfect match, and the album encompasses each individual band member. It’s us saying, ‘This is Entheos. This is who we are. Dark Future begins our journey’.”
“I’ve known Navene and Evan since 2004,” says Travis. “When they were touring behind The Infinite Nothing, we hung out. They asked me if I was interested in playing guitar for them. I joked, ‘I would step in, but I’m not sure if I have the chops.’ They exchanged a look, and I was like, ‘What did I say? I was joking.’ It turns out they weren’t,” he laughs. “Ultimately, it was a really seamless transition for me.”
The Infinite Nothing earned praise from Loudwire, Metal Injection, New Noise Magazine, and more as the group toured with everyone from The Black Dahlia Murder and The Dillinger Escape Plan to Veil of Maya and Between The Buried and Me. Getting off the road, the musicians holed up in Navene's apartment in early 2017 to begin writing what would become Dark Future together.
“We wanted to evolve the sound a little bit,” Navene exclaims. “Evan wrote a lot more. You can feel Travis’s influence in there. We didn’t have that before. The process was different this time around. We decided to get together for a couple of weeks in a room and hammer out the whole album. The last time, it was mostly done via email. Being in the same place, you really get inspired by what everyone else is doing.”
“It just flowed really well once we got together,” agrees Travis. “That was the last piece of the puzzle that I needed to prove to myself. I knew I could do well on tour and live, but I wanted to prove I could write music with them. The whole thing was very inspiring for all of us. It was creativity in its purest from. That’s where it all started.”
“Now, it was much more of a group effort from the ground up,” adds Evan. “It was different in that regard. Once we started recording, everything went really fast.”
The song “Melancholia” reflects the strength of their union. Tightly wound polyrhythmic guitars entwine with mind-numbing percussion, tempering technicality, groove, and space. Meanwhile, Chaney’s screams haunt and hypnotize before spiraling into an entrancing blast of fret fireworks.
“The title fully describes the song,” admits Chaney. “It’s about being melancholy or unsure about life and if the decisions you’ve made are correct. The start is very reminiscent of our last two releases, but there’s an evolution in songwriting that brings everything into new territory.”
Speaking of new territory, two head-spinning musical movements earmark the record. The first sees “Black Static (I)” collide with the progressive pummeling of “White Noise (II),” while the second ignites the scorched metallic mastery of “Inverted Earth (I)” towards the galactic grinding of “Sunshift (II).”
“I think this album is going to translate better live,” explains Evan. “It’s technical, but not in a super dense way. There’s more space, and the tempos are slightly slower—which will be fun on stage.”
Ultimately, Dark Future hints at what’s ahead for not only Entheos, but extreme music in general as it positions the band ahead of the curve in all regards.
“I want people to walk away with a sense of who we are as a band,” concludes Chaney. “Evan, Navene, and I have been extremely tightknit since the beginning. It just took us a year-and-a-half to find Travis. Now that we’re together, I hope listeners want even more from us.”
“I hope audiences feel like they experienced something,” Navene leaves off. “When I heard it totally done, I felt like I had just left a movie theater. It’s a heavy, deep, and cinematic experience. I hope that’s what comes across.”

Možakar je dobil - baje prek 4chana! - zanimiv izziv: naj ustvari fuzijo black metala in črnske spiritualne glasbe. Zeal And Ardor je rojen. Projekt je aktiven slabih 5 let, do zdaj pa so izdali 3 albume - najbolj aktualni je Stranger Fruit, kjer Gagneux prijetno, a hkrati surovo kaže, kaj je nov obraz ekstremnega metala. Miks glasbe je vsekakor nenavaden, zato se še dodatno priporoča spoznavanje tega benda; bodisi prek YouTube bodisi prek njihove uradne strani itd., najbolje pa je, da se ustavite na njihovem koncertu. Ne, ne zvenijo kot Ulver, ne zvenijo kot Ancient VVisdom, ne zvenijo kot Imperial Triumphant ali kot klasični Emperor, Arcturus itd. - čeprav bi lahko bili vse to. In še več.
Vstopnice že na voljo!

Novembrski death metal večer
13. novembra se bodo v Ljubljani ustavili nori brutalneži Aborted, ki bodo septembra prek založbe Century Media izdali novi album. Svencho & Co. vam bodo pokazali, kako se streže krvava pojedina, kako dobro zvenijo brutalne litanije in kako v živo ni benda, ki bi zlahka presegel to, kar na odru počnejo Aborted.
A poskusili bodo kanadski legendarni tehničarji Cryptopsy, katerih ime se vedno izgovarja s spoštovanjem. Kanadska death metal scena je ena najbolj ekstremnih in brez Cryptopsy gotovo ne bi bilo bendov, kot so Beyond Creation, Augury, Quo Vadis, Archspire, Neuraxis itd. Flo Mounier in njegovi norci bodo pokazali, kaj je pravi kanadski tehnični death metal.
Če mislite, da boste imeli samo dva benda ''for your pleasure'', se motite. Koncert bodo dodatno oplemenitili francoski death grind norci Benighted, z velikim veseljem pa napovedujemo nemške brutalneže Cytotoxin, katerih zadnji album Gamageddon riše nasmeh največjega užitka na obraze vseh tistih, ki trdijo, da ljubijo brutalni in tehnični death metal.
13. novembra v Orto baru se bo torej zgodil death metal večer, katerega bomo pomnili še leta pozneje.


ABORTED

Bio:
AbortedThere are many ways to die but even more to kill as sonic mass murderers ABORTED elaborately explain since their forming back in 1995 and once again explicitly underline on their newest, eighth studio album “The Necrotic Manifesto”. Founding member and vocalist Sven "Svencho" de Caluwé reveals that conceptually “the album is our own take on the sordid tales of the Necronomicon, the “book of the dead”, of corpse drowned in a sauce of gore and fun covered with a good old 80’s slasher vibe.” This idea was congenially transformed into excellent artwork by Par Olofsson, who already created stunning visuals for acts like The Faceless, Exodus, Immolation, Pathology, Immortal and more.
Delicious gory fun aside, musically ABORTED mean dead serious death metal business since day one, delivering their aural blows with a maximum of versatility and hard-hitting brutality successfully melting the technical US school of Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse with the melodic incisions of European flavor obviously inspired by recently returned UK gods Carcass or even Entombed. ABORTED hack, slash, cut, grind, blast, groove, crush, rip, tear, destroy, kill in every way humanely possible and this multi-faceted approach has earned them a dedicated fanbase over the past years.
“The Necrotic Manifesto” – also produced by Jacob Hansen (who already worked with the band e.g. on 2003’s “Goremageddon” and 2011’s “Global Flatline”) – makes no exception and continues in the tradition of its much acclaimed predecessor guaranteeing you maximum gore metal pleasure. Intensity – check, brutality – check, technicality – check, inhuman savage vocals – check, keyboards – nope, bittersweet melodies – hell no, folk elements – get outta here?!?! While remaining true to themselves.
ABORTED still have a couple of macabre surprises in store spicing their renowned and respected killing spree with some bonus-carnage: First up, are guest vocalists Vincent Benett (The Acacia Strain) on “Your Entitlement Means Nothing” and Phlegeton (Wormed) on “Excremental Veracity”, sweet as rot cover versions of the incredible “Funeral Inception” (Suffocation) and “Arise” (Sepultura) as well as an entire card came (!) invented and designed by the band accompanying the album’s limited edition as Svencho details: “The card game starts off with my humble self finding the “Necrotic Manifesto” at a truck stop while taking a dump on tour, reading out passages and unleashing hell on earth. Through the card game players take on the role of a band member or crew member and have to defeat the legions of hell with their maniacal leader: the doctor! All presented with a good dose of dark humor, horror and tons of internal jokes which will get players to know the members of the band a bit better and more personal.”
Ready to shed blood and spread gallons of guts across the globe, the live Armageddon known as ABORTED will first tour the US with Kataklysm in April, followed by European release shows in May before selected mass executions during the upcoming festival season. So, better believe the self appointed “Gurgloroth” Sven de Caluwé when he says “get ready mankind, ABORTED is coming right at ya!”

CRYPTOPSY

Bio:
CryptopsyCryptopsy is an extreme metal band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. During the past twenty years, Cryptopsy have wreaked havoc throughout the metal genre by releasing six studio albums (Blasphemy Made Flesh, None So Vile, Whisper Supremacy, And Then You’ll Beg, Once Was Not and The Unspoken King), a live album (None So Live) and an EP (Ungentle Exhumation), which have confronted and invigorated the conventional approach to writing extreme music.

BENIGHTED

Bio:
BenightedMadness reigns! BENIGHTED deliver the radical soundtrack to these savage times. With their new full-length 'Necrobreed', the French sidestep the steadily growing complexity of their previous albums ‘Asylum Cave’ (2011) and 'Carnivore Sublime' (2014) by recalibrating their sound along their roots.
'Necrobreed' is the result of modern violence combined with an undercurrent of old school feeling. BENIGHTED keep their grinding influences but classic death metal clearly shows through the fabric. Those insane pig squeals are backed-up by massive growling. Crushing riffing and nuclear drumming meet subtle melodies and hidden hooks are fueling the fury.
BENIGHTED were spawned by members from French Death and Black metal bands DISHUMANIZED, DARKNESS FIRE, and OSGILIATH, who joined forces in 1998 for a more brutal, heavy and modern way of expression. When their first self-produced and self-titled full-length hit the streets in 2000, it immediately had a strong impact. This turned a side-project into a main act. A fast-growing fan base was built by a string of acclaimed albums: 'Psychose' (2002), 'Insane Cephalic Production' (2004), 'Identisick' (2006), and 'Icon' (2007) were all enthusiastically received.
On the live front, BENIGHTED quickly started to capture audiences with sweat driver performances that bulldozer any resistance mercilessly aside. This allowed the French to climb up the ladder fast and soon came invitations to all major European festivals including Neurotic Death Fest, Hellfest, Wacken, Brutal Assault, Summer Breeze, and Inferno Festival among many more.
BENIGHTED recorded 'Necrobreed' once again in Germany's Kohlekeller Studio in continuation of a very successful relationship. The other constant with these brutal death addicts is an album concept that comes based on a theme revolving around the abysmal potential of the human psyche. This time vocalist (and caretaker in a mental asylum) Julien Truchan penned lyrics dealing with a man, who is stitching dead animals to his abdomen. On feeling the warmth of his infected flesh, the schizophrenic "gives birth" to the carcass and places it in his house as the result of a severe childhood trauma involving a dead cat.
'Necrobreed' gives an extreme musical voice to the madness lurking within. Let your mind be shaken by BENIGHTED. In case of side effects, please see a doctor.

CYTOTOXIN

Bio:
CytotoxinDuring the night of April 26th in 1986 a world-changing accident occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. Inspired by this catastrophe and its consequences a highly radiated German band called CYTOTOXIN pulverized the Death Metal world in 2010.
In 2011 the band released their self produced full length album PLUTONIUM HEAVEN. Only one year later they entered KOHLEKELLER STUDIOS (Aborted, Benighted, …) to forge their highly appreciated second record RADIOPHOBIA. Since the release of RADIOPHOBIA via UNIQUE LEADER RECORDS in 2012 CYTOTOXIN played Europe-wide club and festival shows. In January 2017 the band fused once again with KOHLEKELLER STUDIOS to record their extremely anticipated third album GAMMAGEDDON coming out via UNIQUE LEADER RECORDS on July 21th in 2017.
Ready to conquer the world with their new weapon GAMMAGEDDON you better keep your gas mask at hand…

REVOCATION – THE OUTER ONES GLOBAL INVASION PART II
Prihod tehničnih death metal bogov iz črnih in mrtvih dimenzij

Dan pred miklavžem bo Slovenija doživela tisto, pred čimer nas je v svojih zgodbah že svaril H. P. Lovecraft - prišli bodo ''the ancient ones'', ki se bodo utelesili skozi zasedbo Revocation.
Ameriški tehnično death metalski kvartet Slovencem ni neznanka, saj so nas obiskali že nekajkrat, a tokrat se bodo David Davidson in ekipa predstavili z novo plato, albumom The Outer Gods, ki letos izide prek založbe Metal Blade. Kot sami pravijo, se z novim albumom obračajo k zgodbam starodavnih bitij, ki tvorijo tako imenovane Cthulhu mite in o katerih so že veliko peli Morbid Angel, Massacre, celo Metallica, Crafteon, Dissinter in mnogi drugi, glasbeno pa gre za bolj mračen in death metalski material. Ki bo v živo gotovo deloval.
Ob njih bo eden najhitrejših death metal bendov na svetu, kanadski Archspire, ki z albumom Relentless Mutation znova dokazujejo, da si lahko hiter, kompleksen in brutalen, v živo pa so - preverjeno! - utelešenje tornada. V veliko čast nam je predstaviti übertehničarje Soreption, ki jih hvalijo povsod - gre za bend s švedskih koncev, ki ga zlahka postavimo ob boku sodržavljanom Spawn Of Possession, Anata, Aeon, po tehnični brutalnosti pa se zlahka kosajo s trenutno najboljšimi bendi na svetu.
Sploh pa je poslastica zasedba Rivers Of Nihil, ki z novim albumom Where Owls Know My Name kaže, kako se da odlično združiti death metal in progresivno glasbo.
5. 12. v Orto Baru - vstopnice pa so že na voljo na klasičnih mestih!


REVOCATION

Bio:
RevocationRarely does a band step to the forefront of a genre with such purpose and confidence. Revocation have moved from relative obscurity to international critical acclaim as one of the brightest hopes for metal. Unforgettable songs bend, stop, twist, and shred at virtuosic levels while exploding with frenetic energy. The members of Revocation are masters of their craft and metal’s finest new band.

ARCHSPIRE

Bio:
ArchspireFor the recent successes of technical death outfit ARCHSPIRE to come into fruition, certain variables must align. Talent, drive, creativitiy, and absolute dedication are only a few characteristics one may notice about the group, and indeed many have experienced the bi-product of these characteristics:
A tight live performance, where impressive speeds come grinding to a halt, and in even less time twist and contort into complex passages rife with beautiful harmonies, juxtaposed against insidious melodies. An attention to songwriting, focusing not only on technicality, but originality as well, take this sub genre and put it on it's ear. And the combination of musical backgrounds, which is apparent in much of ARCHSPIRE'S music, showing itself through catchy rhythms, interesting riffs and arrangements, and progressive passages.
Pushing boundaries of speed and endurance set only by the genre's top artists, while remaining accessible and interesting is no small feat. These Canadians have proven themselves worthy of touring and playing with bands like Origin, Decapitated, Hate Eternal, Abysmal Dawn, Vomitory, Fleshgod Apocalypse, and Aborted.
When all the elements required align in such a way that they form something original, and interesting, it becomes a catalyst for something new... and in the case of ARCHSPIRE, All has indeed, Aligned.

SOREPTION

Bio:
SoreptionHailing from Sundsvall, Sweden, SOREPTION have come to claim their throne atop the mountain of technical death metal with their new album MONUMENT OF THE END. The band has made their name on their trademark take on technical groove, effortlessly blending slamming groove and blistering technicality. In the eyes of their contemporaries, SOREPTION are the archetype of precision, and have become one of the most imitated and borrowed-from bands in their realm.

RIVERS OF NIHIL

Bio:
Rivers of NihilForget everything you think you know about Rivers of Nihil. The Reading, PA quintet announced themselves as one of the most promising and forward-thinking metal bands in the world today with their first two releases, The Conscious Seed of Light (2013) and Monarchy (2015). But on March 16th, 2018, they will shatter all expectations with their third full-length, Where Owls Know My Name.
Whereas Seed and Monarchy were thematically centered around spring and summer, respectively, Where Owls Know My Name represents the fall. And although that season is usually associated with death, for Rivers of Nihil, the autumn serves as a rebirth. Formed in 2009 by guitarist Brody Uttley, bassist/lyricist Adam Biggs, and vocalist Jake Dieffenbach, Rivers of Nihil quickly made a name for themselves in the death metal scene, attracting the attention of legendary DM titan Erik Rutan. Rutan, revered for his work as both a musician (Hate Eternal, Morbid Angel) and producer (Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore), insisted on recording The Conscious Seed of Light. The results were, unsurprisingly, spectacular, with Heavy Blog Is Heavy going so far as to assert that the debut "rivals even the most legendary work of some of [Rivers of Nihil's] peers and influences." They continued along this trajectory with Monarchy, which Metal Injection praised as an "incredibly striking" demonstration of how "Rivers of Nihil have evolved into a monster."
The group further cemented their reputation as a young band to watch by annihilating audiences with their live show, which Metal Wani called "a mind numbing force of modern death metal with a vivid darkness in the sound." To date, Rivers of Nihil have toured with such heavy hitters as Whitechapel, Obituary, Darkest Hour, Misery Index, and Cryptopsy.
But Where Owls Know My Name represents a massive evolutionary leap for Rivers of Nihil, as different from its predecessors as Homo sapiens are from amoeba. The band - now rounded out by guitarist Jon Topore and drummer Jared Klein - has delivered an album which is often just as punishing as its predecessors while assimilating ingredients from musical genres as varied as electronica, jazz, alternative, folk, and the golden age of Shrapnel Records. The resulting music is indescribably progressive, a multifaceted soundscape that goes beyond the wildest dreams of even the group's most ardent admirers. All bets are off; listeners are simply not prepared for the magnum opus that is Where Owls Know My Name.

8. decembra se bo v Orto baru v Ljubljani odvil prav poseben večer - namreč, nastopili bodo finski bojevniki Ensiferum - a v ''unplugged'' preobleki.
Čeprav smo Ensiferum videli v Ljubljani ali v Sloveniji nasploh že velikokrat, se nam tokrat obeta večer brez primere. Finci so se odločili za akustični večer - zdaj boste imeli priložnost slišati, kakšno moč ima glasba Ensiferum v resnici, kajti dobro kitarsko linijo ali bobnarski ritem ali pa vokal se mora prepoznati z distorzijo ali pa brez. Igrali bodo tako stvari z najnovejše plate, kot njihove hite, gotovo pa boste slišali še kak komad, ki ga prej niso igrali. V vsakem slučaju boste Ensiferum tokrat gotovo slišali prvič, pa četudi ste jih prej že velikokrat.
Vstopnice so že na voljo!


ENSIFERUM

Bio:
EnsiferumEnsiferum's music has always had folk elements in it and every now and then acoustic songs could be found on the albums. The idea of doing purely acoustic gigs came up years ago and finally in 2016 the band did several acoustic gigs in Finland and even recorded a DVD featuring the gig in Helsinki.
The whole idea of Ensiferum Acoustic is to bring a totally new aspect to Ensiferum's live performance. During the band's metal gigs it just never felt natural to suddenly change to acoustic instruments. Because there are quite a few acoustic songs that the band has made and fans kept on asking when those could be heard, Ensiferum accepted the challenge and came up with a setlist including songs that had never been played live and also rearranged some hit songs to fit the mood of an acoustic show.
Ensiferum has always been an energetic and entertaining live band but the acoustic version will take it all up to eleven. It's absolutely not “a night of ballads with Ensiferum” but an asskicking party with rare songs and lots of opportunities for the crowd to singalong, put up an acoustic moshpit, crowdsurf acousticly and unleash the acoustic party-animal within.

TRIO DE FACTO

Bio:
Trio de FactoTrio de Facto is an acoustic metal cover spinoff-band of the members of Finnish power metal band Metal de Facto.
The idea of Trio de Facto is to rearrange classic heavy and power metal songs so that the band can perform in an intimate small pub purely without any amplification but also to make the show so entertaining that no stage is too big for us.
The earthshaking vocals of Mikael Salo are supported by backing vocals and acoustic guitars by long term musicians Esa Orjatsalo and Sami Hinkka.
So grab a drink, enjoy the show and feel free to sing your all-time favourite metal songs with us!
