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.

Hammers of Misfortune premier 17th Street video

Posted in News with tags , , , on 17th July 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Hammers of Misfortune have unveiled their new video, which is the title track from their latest album, 17th Street. The video was directed by Aaron Cobbett and filmed on location in San Francisco on the very street for which the song was named. Fans can watch the video now here.

With a newly-rejuvenated line-up and their signature sound intact, San Francisco’s Hammers of Misfortune have returned with 17th Street, a brash and heartfelt song cycle, blending the best elements of NWOBHM, thrash, doom metal, and American folk music while somehow sounding unlike any of these. 17th Street takes the band’s inimitable sound to a new level, creating an emotional gravity that only further accentuates the band’s formidable songwriting chops. “I can see how someone could find it an upbeat record at first glance” says John Cobbett, guitarist and producer of the band. “If you listen carefully, you’ll find that each song has its own point of view. You might find hope, or something very different, very dark.”
