WOODS OF YPRES Merchandise Bundles Available to Benefit David Gold

Posted in News on 7th June 2012 by markssonofjorvik
On  Dec 21, 2011, there was a shock wave felt around the world when David  Gold of Ontario’s WOODS OF YPRES died on Highway 400. In loving memory  of this immensely talented artist and beautiful human being, the family  of David Gold has made available a range of merchandise bundles at this locaton.
Paypal information is included, so please make a purchase in memory of  the man that meant so much to so many with his creative, emotionally  deep contribution to music. All proceeds from the sales are used to  cover funeral costs and other expenses resulting from David’s death.
David’s mother Esther Gold wrote about her son in her e-mail to us and we are honored to assist in spreading the word.

We  and thousands of people are learning to live life without David. David  was courageous to create songs about love, love lost, facing challenges,  celebrating joys and accepting and understanding consequences of  another’s behavior. None have control over others, but one has control  of reactions and responses, and then makes choices. We all are survivors  of loss.
With  no exaggeration,  hundreds of people have contacted us  with  testimonies about how David’s lyrics impacted their lives, helped them  to make changes resulting in personal growth, motivating them and  inspiring them to follow their dreams.
As David’s family, of me, Esther, siblings Michael, Laura and Marie, we need help to promote David’s CD and merchandise sales.
We  had a Tribute concert in Toronto and one in Sault Ste. Marie. The Metal  Community has become family as we all share in our time of deep sorrow.  I was proudly, M.O.F., mom of four, now I am M.O.M., Mom of many. Those  who grieve David as a multi-talented musician, admit they grieve the  loss of their brother. I have become a Mom figure to many and David’s  siblings are now considered to be family to those who miss David.
There  is so much positive press created about David. It is said” when we are  born, we cry. We hope when we die, thousands cry.” In  David’s case,  thousands cried, and their lives are forever changed because their David  is no longer with them.
Thank  you for helping to honor my son, and to recognize all who must learn to  live life remembering David’s lyrics, “love the living while they are  alive,” and life is not the destination, but it is the journey.” David  admitted writing lyrics, with empathy, for those who needed to hear  them, or learn from them, and he wrote from his own experiences from his  heart and  from his soul. David was a man with many dimensions, not  just his music. He was well educated, with three university degrees, was  a teacher, a multi-talented musician, burned the candle from both ends,  with high energy and  determination. In the Finnish language is a word  “SISU.” David was “SISU,” personified.

Brume d’Automne’s Self-titled Album Coming June 12 th on Sepulchral Productions

Posted in News on 6th June 2012 by markssonofjorvik

Seven  years after their debut album, one of the forerunners of the “Métal  Noir Québécois” movement is back at last! Athros (Forteresse/Ur Falc’h)  and Nordet (Ur Falc’h) return with a self-titled album on June 12th (Sepulchral Productions) that is both harsher and more epic than
Fiers et Victorieux,  while keeping that firmly Québécois side which has gained the band many  fans since 2005. With a bit less emphasis on folkloric passages, and  with a rawer, more furious approach, on the new release Brume d’Automne  takes a stab at classic Black Metal, while incorporating its very own,  distinctive twist in what is yet again an album that those following  Québec’s Black Metal scene will not want to miss!

Brume d’Automne Cover Art & Track Listing:
Tels des Béliers
Traditionnelle 4
L’esprit du Courant
Rouge Souvenir d’Antan
Le Lieu de la Vengeance
Moé, j’me Souviens!
Saint Eustache – Traditionnelle 5
Quand les Corbeaux Crient leur Haine


Please get in touch with for all press inquires

Founded  in 2003 by Athros (Forteresse/Ur Falc’h) and Nordet (Ur Falc’h), Brume  d’Automne is considered as one of the forerunners of the “Métal Noir  Québécois” movement. Blending raw Black Metal with Québec’s  traditional/folkloric music, the group released their first album, Fiers et Victorieux,  in 2005. Even though the album had a large influence on Québec’s Black  Metal scene and helped shaped it as it stands today, the group went  dormant for five years afterwards, emerging again in 2010 on a split 7″  with Forteresse. At long last, the group will release their  eagerly-awaited sophomore album on June 12, 2012 through Sepulchral  Productions.


Brume d’Automne is:

Athros : Guitars, bass, drums
Nordet : Guitars, vocals


Sepulchral Productions to Release BORGNE’s Royaume des Ombres June 12th

Posted in News on 6th June 2012 by markssonofjorvik

Quebec’s Sepulchral Productions has set June 12th as the date on which Royaume des Ombres from Swiss atmospheric/industrial black metallers will be made  available for mass consumption. BORGNE strikes back with a vengeance  with what is undoubtedly its most accomplished work to date. Moving  forward in the darker and more complex direction hinted on Entraves de l’Âme,  while still retaining the mechanical hatred and blistering speed fans  of the band have come to expect, BORGNE will pummel listeners with  nearly 60 minutes of brutal, creepy and suffocating songs, while adding  an epic twist.

Royaume des Ombres Cover Art & Track Listing:
Fall of the Lost Souls
Suffer as I Paid my Grave
In the Realm of the Living I’m Dead
Only the Dead Can be Heard
All These Screams Through Me
The Last Thing You Will See

“Borgne  has surpassed itself on this very heavy and oppressive opus. The  magnificence and gigantism of a limitless production gives free rein to  the insidious genius of its creator”

5.5 / 6 – Cynthia Mourato, Metalian Magazine


Please get in touch with for all press inquires

Hailing  from Switzerland, and thus being the first group from outside of Québec  signed on Sepulchral Productions, BORGNE plays cold, mechanical and  inhumane Industrial/Black Metal, as martial as it is hypnotic. Do not  expect any lame techno beats here, only blistering Black Metal done in a  more “synthetic” way, with a dense, suffocating sound and some dark  ambient passages. After  thirteen years of activity, five albums and now formed as a live band,  Borgne will be headed by: Bornyhake (Enoid, ex-Krigar), XaX  (ex-Disaster, ex-Unborned, ex-Sword), Lady Kaos (ex-Ipsum), Ardelean  (ex-Krigar, Fosse, Euclidean) and Quaoar (Astral Silence).

Interview: Jenny Green [Cryptic Age]

Posted in Interview with tags , , , , , , on 5th June 2012 by markssonofjorvik

For York based Folk Metal band CRYPTIC AGE 2012 is going to be one hell of a year and a year that should see them truly emerge and blossom on to the scene. This is the year that Cryptic Age release their debut album entitled ‘Sounds Of Infinity’ and for a teaser if you visit their website you can stream the excellent new track from the album, ‘Eternity Beckons’.

If you think that is all the band have on though you’d better guess again. This year will see Cryptic Age grace the stage at both the Metalcamp Festival in Slovenia as well as the Warhorns Festival right here in York with the mighty Skyforger.

So with all that in mind, here is what keyboard player and vocalist Jenny Green had to say on all things Cryptic Age, from the new album to metalcamp with a stop off on the Isle Of Man for good measure.

With this being your debut album, were there any nerves or worries regarding the writing process?

I wouldn’t say nerves, but I think we took a step up from our EP on the quality of the songs. Sometimes we made up a really good riff really fast, but other times we changed things a lot until we thought they sounded good enough.

How do you feel the overall finished article has come out?

We are personally very happy with it. We’ve managed to accumulate a style we were still trying to find with our EP, the overall sound quality is far better than before and the songs flow together very well. And also the artwork is amazing!

Who was responsible for the artwork?

The artwork was done by two guys who make up a small company called Kogain Art. The album art was up for sale, but it was archived on the website so it was pure chance that we managed to find it.

What was the bands inspiration lyrically and musically for Sounds Of Infinity?

Well our inspiration on both musical and lyrical terms for the album came from countless places. We did stick to a few rules though, in that we wanted the album to maintain its overall folky sound which is the bread and butter, while the more symphonic, black, thrash and progressive elements are extra factors of our music that we think give us a unique style.

With the lyrics, we also had a few rules. We wanted to put more Manx Gaelic on there because of popular demand and of course we wanted them to be memorable and visual. The only difference is the sixth track Sea Invocation, which is an arrangement of a Manx traditional song.

So where does your love of folkish/gaelic styles come from?

For me it comes from my upbringing on the Isle of Man. Manx folk music I suppose sounds very similar to Irish music but still has its unique aspects. So we like to maintain a real sense of folk metal which stems from Manx folk music, which gives our sound subtle differences to possibly the more generic folk sound other bands may use. And of course I love folk metal ever since I got into Finntroll and Eluveitie. In fact it’s probably my favourite metal genre.

So part of the new album is a four parter by the same name as the album, whats it about?

Well it’s based off a Manx legend where if you put your head to the ground on top of Dalby mountain, you can hear the sounds of spirits, known as Sheean ny Feaynid. This loosely translates as ‘Sounds of Infinity’ although it also means ‘Sounds from Space’ so I personally wanted to re-capture this theme in the concept of revelation that there is so much more out there than one may first think. The story itself is something we wrote: I play a Manx woman whose husband is out at sea during a terrible storm. Unfortunately he doesn’t make it back alive and I becoming mad with grief. I then remember the legend of Sheean ny Feaynid and set out to Dalby mountain to find them. I finally reach them and then supposedly they take me up so I can be united with my husband once again. However we left the ending very ambiguous. For all we know she could have committed suicide from madness and these spirits never existed, or it could have actually happened. It’s left to the imagination of the listener.


Now the new album isn’t the only exciting thing going on with Cryptic Age right now, how did the Metalcamp Festival slot come about?

Well we were very surprised at this – all we did was register our band on the metalcamp website. Then there was some kind of poll as to which unsigned bands should play and we were on there. We thought nothing of it and there was no word on it for months. But then suddenly Hallam got an email from them and there we have it.

Thats amazing, so which bands on the bill are you looking forward to sharing the stage with?

Well the rest of the bands on the second stage are none we have heard of since most come from Slovakia or Croatia, however I’m looking forward to seeing the Furious Horde since they’re symphonic black metal, which I love, and of course they are a band reigning from familiar territory. We also got a message from Avven who said they were looking forward to seeing us. On the first stage there are so many bands I can’t wait to see: Epica, Finntroll, Eluveitie and Scepticflesh to name a few.

That’s going to be an excellent experience, and then you’ve also got a spot at the Warhorns Festival supporting amongst others Skyforger, so would you say 2012 is really going to be the year that boosts your musical career?

Well I never like to predict the future too much, but I can certainly say that we’ve made great progress this year and hopefully next year will be the same!

The new album from CRYPTIC AGE is out right now and you can buy it HERE!

Taking influence from the likes not only the Bay Area (Exodus, Testament, etc) and German (Destruction, Kreator) scenes, but also acts like Slayer and Lamb of God, MORTAL INFINITY’s District Destruction is one debut album that plays like it was made by 20-year veterans.

“If you crave some balls out thrash without the unnecessary gimmicks, definitely get worked up for the upcoming Mortal Infinity offering, District Destruction. This album is full-on blunt force trauma to the senses, and takes you back to the 90′s thrash era where death-inspired grooves and wicked hooks ruled the earth.”Axes to Grind

Get in touch at for press inquiries.

Mortal Infinity is a Thrash Metal Band from Bavaria/Germany. The band combines their influences from old school Bands like Exodus, Testament, Pantera and Slayer with modern bands like Lamb of God to create their own trademark. Mortal Infinity was founded 2009 by lead singer Marc Doblinger and bass player Sigi Weinhart. After the usual changes in the early lineup, they hit the stage with guitar players Sebastian Unrath and Thomas Harlander, who both play rhythm and lead guitar, and Frank Fiedler on drums. Early in 2011 Mathias Erber joined the band to fill in for bass player Sigi W. who quit to attend a university of applied sciences. Later that year Frank F. left the band because of his health issues, so Mathias E. switched to drums and Daniel Hofer joined Mortal Infinity as the new bass player.This is the line up that recorded the debut District Destruction at the Sound Lodge Studios with Joerg Uken (God Dethroned, Dew-Scented) late 2011. May 2012 had a historic moment for the band when a contract was signed with Digital Media Records, a proud event for the band indeed. Mortal Infinity are playing numerous shows in Europe (e.g. Metalfest Austria with Megadeth) and looking forward to seeing you on the road!

PRC Music Owner Issues Statement On Passing Of Steeve Hurdle

Posted in News on 4th June 2012 by markssonofjorvik
We are very sad to announce the death of guitarist and composer Steeve Hurdle on May 20, 2012. Founding member of PURULENCE and NEGATIVA, and ex-GORGUTS, Steeve leaves a rich and original musical heritage. But he will be remembered mostly for his friendly and unreserved character.
Metal fans of the world are losing a monument of the scene, an exemplary composer and a creative mind that knew no boundaries. Relatives are mourning the man, the son, the brother and the beautiful soul that he was.
“Losing a friend like Steeve is a shock for me. We knew, cheered for and supported each other for the last 23 years. Steeve was wholehearted: a true musician, a true passionate being. He was gearing up for the next chapter of NEGATIVA. We were discussing it after deciding to reedit the first mini-CD: studio, promo, events, concerts, etc. We were getting ready to work together, just like in the good old days of PURULENCE. I was really excited at this perspective, but mostly, I was looking forward to sharing laughs, ideas and all these moments where you know you are at the right place, the right moment with the right person.”
Thank you for crossing my path, Steeve. Rest in peace, Brother.” Rémi – PRC MUSIC

The band boasts Juhani Palomaki, of YEARNING fame, on vocals, who sadly passed away in 2010, leading to the band’s departure. In spite of this, all three “chapters” of the band’s career remain as monoliths for the doom metal scene to engage and appreciate to this day.

Now rare and hard-to-find, these three albums are made available again, this time in digipak format with updated art and design. The band’s last album, “Chapter 3: Parasomnia” features all new cover artwork.

All three albums are available for purchase at your local metal-carrying music store, online and at Metalhit: http://metalmaniacs.bigcartel. com/products?search=colosseum

SEXCREMENT’s Sloppy Seconds Out Now Via Comatose Music

Posted in News on 30th May 2012 by markssonofjorvik

Sloppy Seconds. the newest platter of perversion from Massachusetts’  miscreants of monolithic death groove Sexcrement is out now via Comatose Music.  Mixed by Eliot Bayless  (Revocation) and mastered at New Alliance East (Converge, Trap Them),  this album serves up a full frontal assault of brutally colossal, yet  rockin’ heaviness, marinted in all things perverse & taboo.  With  their sophomore release, these depraved bottom feeders (vocalist Adam  Mason, bassist Blue Spinazola, drummer Devon Hunt and guitarist Evan  Duplessis) have crafted their finest display of disgusting devastation  to date. The album is available for purchase at this location.

This is music Buffalo Bill fucks hard to when applying lotion to his skin… [9/10] - Nefarious Realms
Florida-style death metal with a little thrash, a little death ‘n’ roll,  and a lot of . . . deviance. It also includes a dash of grind, a dose  of d-beat, a sprinkling of slam, and a fistful of groove. It’s  fast-paced and in-your-face and as headbang material goes, it’s aces. - No Clean Singing
To  add to the excitement, the band alongside underground filmmaker Victor  Bonacore/Chainsaw Kiss Productions has recently debuted the video for the  first single, ‘Trucker Bombed.’  Starring legendary horror scream queen  Linnea Quigley (Return of the Living Dead, Silent Night Deadly Night)  the video is a urine soaked journey into the darker side of addiction  complete with Ms. Quigley’s signature mix of camp and downright fright  to seal the deal.  Make sure to watch for cameos from members of Origin,  Revocation & more. (Video Link)
These  extreme metal debutantes are primed and ready to take advantage of you  in 2012 and beyond.  Make sure to check them out on their ‘West Coast  Penetration’ tour this June, and look for their new (Trojan) magnum opus  cumming soon!
