Dutch Death Metal Kings AntropomorphiA have just launched the landing page for their comeback album Evangelivm Nekromantia!
Head over here to stream the first single Psuchagogia, to check out the shocking artwork and the pre-order links. AntropomorphiA‘s Evangelivm Nekromantia will be released on October 22nd, 2012.

AntropomorphiA comments on Evangelivm Nekromantia: “We’ve been working on this conception for almost a year. Dedicated to composing a new sort of disturbing death metal darkness exceeding most of the one-dimensional releases you got to hear most of these days!”

AntropomorphiA is:
Ferry Damen (vocals, guitar)
Marc van Stiphout (bass)
Marco Stubbe (drums)

Evangelivm Nekromantia track listing:

1. Intro
2. Nekrophilian Mass
3. The Mourned and the Macabre
4. Debauchery in Putrefaction
5. Anointment by Sin
6. Fleisch
7. Impure Desecration
8. Psuchagogia
9. Nekrosophia
10. Evangelivm Nekromantia

AntropomorphiA is legion to Death Metal lunatics of the underground and will infect soon enough all worshippers of classical Death Metal bands such as BOLT THROWER, GRAVE and AUTOPSY as well as newer high class acts as BLOODBATH or HAIL OF BULLETS.
AntropomorphiA was created under the influence from bands such as Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, Infernäl Mäjesty and Bathory in a tiny town in Holland in 1989.

Over the years they got more and more brutal, released several demos and the Necromantic Love Songs MCD in 1993, but went on a hiatus in the late 90s since other bands became more important.
Fast forward 2009 when other projects moved into the background, AntropomorphiA got re-activated. The line-up is still the same, original members, F (vox/guitar), M (drums), S (bass) form the trinity that is AntropomorphiA till this day.

In early 2011 AntropomorphiA made their first live appearance since 2001 at the Neurotic Deathfest where they put up a convincing brutal show.

At the end of 2011 most of the new record was recorded and the band is taking their time to make sure this album is something more, something huge, resulting in Evangelivm Nekromantia – an album consisting of nine tracks, divided into three chapters of each three songs. Lyrically driven by nekrophilae, murder, necromancy and necrolesbian lust. Mastered at Necromorbus Studios by Tore Stjerna.

BOLTFEST Line-up Announced

Posted in News with tags , , , on 1st March 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Legendary British death metal outfit Bolt Thrower have announced the full line-up for their anniversary show Boltfest at The Forum in London on April 7th.

The band stated: We are very chuffed to announce the bands joining us at our Birthday Bash are: AUTOPSY, DISCHARGE, BENEDICTION & VALLENFYRE. Every band on the bill has contributed in one way or another to some great memories over the last 26 years of Bolt Thrower, so it’s an absolute pleasure to have them all on board! Seeing that all five bands on the bill only play a few select shows a year, this should be a very special night!

200 extra Balcony tickets will go on sale at 20:00 GMT on Wednesday 7th March. They will be available for sale here.

All proceeds from Boltfest will be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

*Teenage Cancer Trust is a registered charity, no. 1062559 (England & Wales) and SCO39757 (Scotland).

Infernal Creation- The Serpent Seed Doctrine [2011]

Posted in CD, Metal with tags , , , , on 8th November 2011 by izaforestspirit

Band: Infernal Creation
Album: The Serpent Seed Doctrine
Release year: 2011
Genre: Black Metal/Extreme Metal/Misanthropic Yorkshire Black Metal

‘The Serpent Seed Doctrine’ is the first full length album from British black metal band, Infernal Creation. In addition to being active supporters of the British underground metal scene, Infernal Creation are also starting to gain attention of the bigger crowds.

One of the main disappointments is that the opening track ‘We The Serpent Seed’ has a very ponderous ‘built-in’ intro which fails to attract the interest of the listener. Not the best way to start an album!

The album reveals an interesting mix of musical influences ranging from Immortal, particularly in the guitar riffs in the intro to ‘Plague Upon Plague’ via the grim, harrowing vocals and song structures of Satyricon in tracks as such as ‘The Faceless Prophet’ to the eerily atmospheric or dare I say it…Cradle of Filth-esque intro to ‘Cruciatus Vobiscum’. The latter is easily the best track on here.

There are also a few surprises such as acoustic, folk-esque intro to the aforementioned ‘The Faceless Prophet’ and the opening riff to ‘The Insidious Gospel’ which bears strong similarity to Bolt Thrower.

Overall this is a very promising debut album but it is clear that the band have some work to do in order to establish a style and a refined sound that suits them best.

3.5/5
