Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 27th March 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Canadian death metallers The Agonist have released their first band photo with new vocalist Vicky Psarakis, who has replaced Alissa White-Gluz, who departed from the band to focus on her new duties as the vocalist for Swedish death metal band Arch Enemy. The band tapped acclaimed photographer Von Wong to bring their new single Disconnect Me to life. The Agonist guitarist Danny Marino says:

After working with Von Wong on our Prisoners photo shoot we knew he was the only one that could realise our vision for Disconnect Me. It was an 18 hour shoot but at the end of the day it was more than we could have hoped for.

With a new album in the works, The Agonist have launched the official lyric video for their latest single Disconnect Me. The video can be viewed below.

Victory Records welcome Erimha

Posted in Featured, News with tags , , , , , , , on 4th April 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Victory Records have proudly announced the signing of symphonic black metal unit, Erimha from Montreal, Quebec, Canada to its roster. Erimha, which means “Army” or “Legion”, coming from Sumerian culture, base their haunting, melodic, merciless and operatic sound on ancient mythology and spirituality. Their mantra and mission is one of inner strength and how the individual can be as powerful as an entire army.

Formed in 2010, Erimha’s punishingly fresh and savage take on symphonic black metal is spawning a loyal legion of followers in the Canadian metal scene. They released their first full length album, Irkalla in September 2010 which featured guest vocals from The Agonist’s frontwoman, Alissa White. The band, Gore (vocals), Kthien (rhythm guitar), Ksaos (drums) and Diusternas (bass) are going to be an extreme force to be reckoned with on the international metal battlefield.

Erimha will embark on their first U.S. tour in June with their debut album for Victory Records to be released this summer.
