This morning brought the premiere of two new songs from two forthcoming albums that we’ve been eagerly awaiting. You can and should hear both of them below.
HAIL OF BULLETS
The new Hail of Bullets album is entitled III: The Rommel Chronicles and it will be released in NorthAm by Metal Blade on October 29 (pre-orders available here). The new song is “DG-7”, and it follows the previous premiere of “Pour Le Mérite” (featured here).
The hammerstrikes of doom . . . the writhing melodies of dank death . . . the rampaging riff-tanks . . . soloing that’s both flame-spitting and soulful . . . the hoarse howls of the incomparable Martin van Drunen . . . it’s all here, and it’s all so damned fine: Dutch death metal devastation comes your way next.
The new album’s name is The Antagonist’s Fire and it will be released on November 11 by W.T.C. Productions (the World Terror Committee). I’m going to be a complete dick and tell you that a couple of your NCS servants have already heard it. I can tell you that it’s fantastic.
I can also tell you that DECIBEL premiered the album’s first advance track today. In Chris D.’s words, “‘Madness Redeemer’ is a mature venture into the netherworlds of Swedish black. Melodic yet dripping with dirt, blood, and the Dark Lord’s malignant fingerprints.” Nicely put.
Get your first taste of one of the year’s best black metal offerings (and prepare to be savaged and ravaged):
