Finis Omnium - Chaos. Hatred. Tyranny (Full-Length Album - 2015) - Bandcamp Stream

BIOGRAPHY
Finis Omnium is a Melodic Death Metal band that hails from Cairo, Egypt, the band was initiated as an idea by Tarek Brery and Moanis Salem, who were both members of "The Circle". Recording started by "Blinded by the wreckage of reality" and then moved on to continue "Scripts of The End". Ismaeel Attallah joined, at a later stage, as a support to the band and as there was a common consensus regarding the band's philosophy, approach and music.

The band was recently formed during mid-2012, however, all the current members have been working, whether solely or together, on various bands and projects that were into different musical styles during the past two decades. It was 1996 that Tarek Brery formed one of the earliest death/black metal acts in Egypt "Black Rose". That initiated a very long journey that comprised many different bands: "Desert, The Blue, The Circle…etc." the main engine behind the band's idea was the frustration of human corruption.

Moanis Salem is one of the finest bassists in Egypt as he is the bassist of "Crescent" and "Divine" and also was a member in some other bands such as Invaders and The Circle.

Ismaeel Attallah The Frontman "Crescent" did some vocals on the demo of the band as an collaboration.

The band released their first EP in 2012 entitled "Scripts Of The End" joined by Ismaeel Attallah (Crescent) as their main vocalist.

They began working on their first full-length album in mid 2013 and later in 2014 they were joined by one of the well known Vocalists among the Egyptian metal scene Sayed Ragai (ex-Sinprophecy), to complete the line up and their first full-length album "Chaos. Hatred. Tyranny" released on the 27th of July 2015.

Chaos. Hatred. Tyranny is an ideological album and it discusses the notions stated in the album name. Notions that are predominant over any political stage worldwide. The album is a mere musical interpretation of the beginning of the end. The end of dreams of prosperity, the end of equality, the end of reason, the end of all. It is a cry for the chaos and eternal night that have started and that are destined to rule. Sayed Ragai was on vocals & lyrics while Tarek Brery on Guitars & Arrangements  and Moanis Salem on Bass & Programming.

Assemble the Chariots - (2009 - 2015) [ Full Discography] - Bandcamp Stream

 BIOGRAPHY
Hailing from the depths of Helsinki, Finland since 2008. Assemble the Chariots combines elements of technical death/black metal, symphonic orchestrations and a brutal crushing live performance!

Assemble the Chariots' five-song debut EP Reflections released with the original line-up in fall 2009. Reflections EP got it's radio premiere in DJ Beerman Show at TopRock Radio (UK).

After numerous line-up changes and hard work and struggle the band released The Sulphur Voids EP in late 2012. A Finnish webzine Kaaoszine published a preview of The Sulphur Voids and it was chosen for a Demo of the Month in a Finnish web magazine Imperium, third best demo release in 2012 in The Duckcore's voting Duckcore Underground Metal Awards, Kings of Europe, a band of the month in All Metal Music Promotions's voting and it gained a lot of interest from a numerous internet bloggers and magazines (BeheadingTheTraitor etc.).

All this was followed with a reputation as a remarkable artist and a lot of live shows were booked; Sharing the stage with Circle of Contempt (Sumerian Records, USA), Artificial Heart (Spinefarm Records), Brymir (Spinefarm Records), Church of the Dead (Stay Heavy Records), Damnation Plan (Coroner Records) and many more. Assemble the Chariots played their first big outdoor festival show in June 2013 at Nummirock Metal Festival, Finland (Children of Bodom, Wintersun, Chelsea Grin etc.)

After a long production, Engulfed by Sun (the first release of World Architects EP) was released in spring 2014. The band got Eyal Levi, Audiohammer Studios (USA) to do the mixing and Alan Douches, West West Side Music (USA) for the mastering. Engulfed by Sun gained a huge amount of good and positive feedback so the band was booked on Nummirock Metal Festival 2014 (Suicide Silence, Behemoth etc.). Engulfed by Sun was also included in Artery Recordings’ Spotify playlist.

Assemble the Chariots has been determinedly shaping and creating it’s fullest form by composing as good and solid songs as possible by trying to reach the full vision of the sound and the wholeness of the songs and the storyline. A three-song-EP "World Architects" was released 1st of August 2015 after a huge production and strict composing. The story behind "World Architects” EP have evolved all away from ”The Sulphur Voids'” blasphemous worldview into the bands idea of the origins and future of man.

”World Architects” was mixed by Eyal Levi, Audiohammer Studios (USA), mastered by Alan Douches, West West Side Music (USA) and recorded by Jarno Hänninen (D-Studio) and Taneli Kaalikoski. Taneli also played the bass for the EP and later he joined the band as a full time member. Right after releasing ”World Architects” the band played it’s biggest club show yet at Nosturi, Helsinki as a support act for Suicide Silence.

Assemble the Chariots is certainly one of the most interesting bands in Finland and is currently endorsed by Impression Cymbals and Sabre Guitars.

Satariel - White Ink: Chapter One (EP - 2014) - Bandcamp Stream

BIOGRAPHY
Formed in Boden back in 1993, the band's name is taken from an ancient work called The Book of Enoch, where Satariel was the 17th Watcher of the 20 leaders of the 200 fallen angels mentioned in the book. Vocalist Pär Johansson, who works as an album cover artist, has designed all the album covers for Satariel as well as many for other bands.

Satariel took on primitive black metal as well as technical death metal during their demo years, settling on a contemporary Swedish black/death-metal sound for the first album "Lady Lust Lilith" in 1998.

The follow-up "Phobos and Deimos" released four years later added doom metal to the mixture, emphasized by bringing Messiah Marcolin (Candlemass/Memento Mori) on board as a guest vocalist on some tracks. The following year Satariel toured Europe alongside labelmates Necrophobic and Impious.

"Hydra" in 2005 presented a more melodic side of the band, focused on mid tempo songs, catchy choruses and clean vocals - elements that had been present since the debut, but used rather sparingly. The Mini-CD "Chifra" two years later followed the same path. "Chifra" also included Satariel's first video, "Hogtied Angel".

White Ink: Chapter 1 is the long awaited new release from Satariel, seeing the band take a turn towards darker and more sinister domains than on their last few albums. Chapter One contains three new songs combining aggression, melody and power in a flawless and crushing production.

Currently, Satariel are working on the upcoming album "White Ink: Chapter 2", which will be released soon.

Nothing Lies Beyond Announce Debut Album ‘Fragile Reality’ + Single Stream

BIOGRAPHY
Nothing Lies Beyond is a melodic death metal band from Tel Aviv, Israel. The band started in late 2011, by Guy Elberg and Ariel Lior, working on their music for two years in the rehearsal studio , during that time, the line-up of changed a few times due to personal reasons. In December 2012 , after working with a local producer – Eli Zulta , the band self- released their first promo single “Fading Behind False Eyes”. The band performed their debut show in 2013 with Israeli extreme metal Arallu and the dark metal band Angry Buddha.

Early 2014 Nothing Lies Beyond were opening act in a festival that included emerging metal bands from Israel Salem , Arallu , Desert. Highlights that year were supports with the massive Elvenking, Dark Tranquillity and Children Of Bodom.

The band have been holed up in AG studio recently and have come to the surface with a blistering melo-death album entitled Fragile Reality. Nine tracks of hook laden melodic death metal that would make you swear you were listening to something from Gothenburg from the early nineties. Except with a modern finesse. With songs like ‘Never Back Down’ and ‘We Are The Revolution’ this is a statement of intent from the young quintet.

“This album means a big achievement in the band’s history. From the early beginning, as the co-founder of the band, we always believed in the potential of the music that we made. The album is really a turning point, from being a small local band in the rehearsal studio… to what we are today.”

“It took a lot of hard work but we can finally say that the album is perfect and represents our music in the best way that’s possible and we want to say thank you to all the people that helped us during this time and especially during the recording sessions. In the end, we are really happy with the final result and this album is just a small step to our final goal.” -  Ariel Lior Drummer of the band.

Endlesshade - Wolf Will Swallow The Sun (Full-Length Album - 2015) - Bandcamp Stream

BIOGRAPHY
Hailing from Kiev, Endlesshade was found in 2013 and has played several shows since then. In 2014 they released a single called “7” containing a song from the debut album “Wolf Will Swallow The Sun” which was released in February 2015 under Rain Without End Records with which they signed a record deal in 2014 as well.

These are long songs, in the eight-to-nine minute range. They create an atmosphere that’s ethereal and crushing, both mystical and tangibly powerful, hypnotic and harrowing. The forlorn, keyboard-enhanced melodies are sweeping and memorable, while the riffs are titanic. The harsh vocals are gargantuan and vividly impassioned; the clean vocals are sombre and sorrowful — and  are impeccably performed by a woman (Natalia Androsova). Truly compelling music…

Hokum - The Money Eaters ( Full-Length Album - 2015) - Bandcamp Stream

BIOGRAPHY
HOKUM is a four piece progressive rock band hailing from Johannesburg, South Africa. The line up consists in: Scott Wareham on (vocals/guitar), Jason Jackson (drums),Conrad de Jong (guitar) and Sarah Wolff (keyboards/piano).

Formed from the ashes of Marlowe, and with more than ten years experience, their sound ranges from sublime soundscapes (Brian Eno, Radiohead), the avant garde (Steve Reich, Philip Glass), to the solidity of rock (Deftones, Tool). And although these influences can be heard, their sound defies strict classification; they bring something new to rock music. 

"We have been working hard on this album for more than a year now, so far the singles Touch Power, The Emerald and most recently Converse have been well received so far. The Emerald peaking at number 3 on The SA Alternative rock chart (5fm)." - Commented the band

They released their debut album, The Money Eaters, in June 2015, which can be downloaded on iTunes, or purchased in hard copy at their shows.

They are gigging extensively throughout Gauteng at venues such as Sundowners, Rumours, Arcade Empire, The Bohemian and Wolmer Bush Lounge. Festivals played to date: Krank'd Up, Slamfest, Oppikoppi, Splashy Fen and Metal Feast. They have been playlisted on TUKS FM, various other Varisty and online radio stations, and have been featured artists on Mix FM’s Sunday afternoon Hangout show, hosted by Kerry-anne Allerston.

They have recently paired up with renowned sound engineer and producer, Jon Pentreath (BLK JKS, Cold Water Morning, Sun, The Muffinz), and are endorsed by SA Backline, the premier sound company in South Africa (providing sound and equipment for Big Concerts for artists such as Foo Fighters, Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey).

"HOKUM have release the full album "The Money Eaters" and we are back in studio getting our next album ready. The title of the second album is "Human Sex Equation". Here are purchase areas for The Money Eaters. We hope you enjoy the full experience we have created." - Commented the band

"HOKUM have released the name of their upcoming album, 11 tracks have been selected and the title track and album name is "Human Sex Equation". We will still be playing shows thought the year promoting "The Money Eaters" but will be testing new tracks at shows so make sure to get to a few and see what you think." - Commented the band

The Money Eaters ( Full-Length Album - 2015)

PitVirus - State of The Nation (EP- 2016) - Bandcamp Stream

BIOGRAPHY
PitVirus is a hard-rocking four-piece “supergroup” from Johannesburg, South Africa. With political and social commentary and catchy grooves, this is a modern protest band.

Comprised of members from bands – current and former – such as Chris van der Walt on guitar (The Black Cat Bones, Boargazm), Marc Junius on bass (The Drift, All Forlorn), Thomas Hughes on drums (Haggis And Bong, Fuzigish, Vulvodynia, All Forlorn) and no less than the legendary David Beretta Owens on vocals, famed from his days fronting the band Lithium during the 90s.

PitVirus began in 2012 as the brainchild of Chris van der Walt (The Black Cat Bones, Boargazm) and Marc Junius (ex The Drift) who wanted to write dirty, gritty rock music. Industrial metal was a big influence at the time, with both founding members getting more than just one daily fix of Ministry. Meeting up at a music festival, they decided to go ahead with writing material.

With political and social commentary and catchy grooves, this is a modern protest band. Spontaneity was the name of the game, but the groove – which they felt was so often missing in the ultra-complex, noise-driven metal of this decade – was the most important item on the agenda.

After completing 20 rough ideas the basic tracks were demoed. Needing a drummer to complete the trio they asked Tom Hughes of Fuzigish and Haggis & Bong to have a listen. Tom’s hard-hitting drumming style was the perfect fit.

Tracking began at Tom’s studio, Sound Stables, in 2014. Tom worked his engineering magic and recording went by smoothly. Once the instrumental recording for the first five tracks was completed the search for a vocalist began.

Enter South African legend David Beretta Owens of Lithium and N8ive fame. After hearing the tracks Dave immediately said yes! PitVirus promised him everything he loves as a vocalist; from raw screams and catchy melodies to beautiful harmonies.

Focusing lyrically on real issues facing South Africa and the world in general, songs like Xeno Man, Shed my Load and Firepool emerged naturally from the slow and grinding or fast and punky hooks of the music, transforming them into anthems of protest.

Their EP entitled “STATE OF THE NATION” was released independently on 18 April 2016, and is available online. The band is currently working on their first full-length album (all new songs) which they hope to release at the end of this year.
