PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT Premieres New Lyric Video At MetalSucks

Dutch death metal menaces, PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT, in conjunction with the evil-breeders at MetalSucks, are pleased to unveil a new paean of punishment in the form of their latest lyric video for “Glorify Through Cyanide.”

The newest taste of terror, which centers itself on American cult leader Jim Jones, comes off the band’s soon-to-be-released From Crotch To Crown opus. Their first full-length proper since 2008’s mauling Descendants Of DepravityFrom Crotch To Crown delivers a maniacal fusion of old-school death metal brawn with modern, technical riff incursions and enough debauched lyrical twists to make even the most deviant of serial killers blush. Metal Injection boasts, “PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT aren’t the kind of band where you’re left wondering what type of music they’ll be playing. As the name heavily insinuates, it’s gory, brutal death metal in the vein of Carcass that will kick your ass up and down the morgue,” while HeavyBlogIsHeavy crowns the record, “a hefty 40 minute slice of honest, no frills aural violence.” Adds Sea Of Tranquility in a 4/5 score, “From Crotch to Crown just crushes from start to finish, and the lyrical content is even more grotesque this time around… a no-brainer for anyone into gore soaked technical death metal.”

From Crotch To Crown was recorded in multiple locations throughout The Netherlands including Split Second Sound Studio in Amsterdam, guitarist Frank Schiphorst’s home studio in Zwolle, guitarist Martijn Moes’ home studio in Meppel and Final Focus Studio in Tilburg, and was re-amped, mixed and mastered by Yuma Van Eekelen and Bart Hennephof (also at Final Focus). The end product oozes forty-one heinous minutes of the band’s sickest, most instrumentally refined and unapologetically sadistic material to date.

From Crotch To Crown will be released via Willowtip Records on February 4, 2014. Preorder your copy today at THIS LOCATION.

BEHEMOTH: Third ‘The Satanist’ Trailer

Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

The third of four videos on the making of “The Satanist”, the long-awaited new album from Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH, can be seen at this location.

“The Satanist” will be released on February 3 in the U.K., February 4 in North America and Poland, February 5 in Japan, and February 7 in the rest of the world. Pre-order bundles, include: CD, LP, t-shirt, as well as the deluxe box set, and are available at metalblade.com/behemoth in North America, nuclearblast.de/behemoth in Europe, and on behemoth-store.com (digibook and box).

BEHEMOTH‘s video for the new single “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” can be seen below. This visual masterpiece was produced by Grupa 13 and is one of BEHEMOTH‘s most unsettling and unique works to date.

BEHEMOTH frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski states about the video: “Yes, we took all the time in the world to complete this project. And we did everything that was humanely possible to accurately express our vision. We crossed the Rubicon.

‘Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel’ is an ecstatic manifest of our unrestrained artistic will, where we dare to reach out beyond the limitations of the heavy metal genre. And it’s only the beginning.”

“The Satanist” deluxe box, which is available in North America as an European import, includes: CD/DVD digibook in silver mirror slipcase with a high-quality 44-page booklet (with gold foil, UV gloss lamination), supersize poster flag (approx. 3.5’ x 5’), wooden black inverted rosary cross, metal pin, black envelope with black communion wafers. The DVD, “Live Barbarossa”, includes a professionally filmed show in Ekaterinburg, Russia, as well as 30-minute documentary about the creative process behind “The Satanist”.

“The Satanist” was produced by BEHEMOTHWojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand at Hertz Studio. The CD was mixed by Matt Hyde (SLAYER) and mastered by Ted Jensen (METALLICAAC/DC) at Sterling Sound in New York City. The cover art for “The Satanist” was painted by renowned Russian painter and occultist Denis Forkas. The paint used included some of Nergal‘s own blood. Additional art and design was completed by Metastazis (PARADISE LOST) and Zbigniew Bielak (WATAINGHOST).

“I wanted to incorporate some of my DNA into the art,” Nergal told Australia’s Heavy magazine about having his blood included in “The Satanist” artwork.

“This album seems to be so defining of who we are now as people and as individuals, and considering all the instances in recent years, [we wanted] to make it more ‘ours’ than it is usually.”

In a recent interview with Revolver magazine, Darski described BEHEMOTH‘s new songs as “very atmospheric” and “very emotional.” “Think BURZUM meets NEW ORDER meets KILLING JOKE,” he added. But at the same time, fans shouldn’t expect the album to sound too far removed from BEHEMOTH‘s past efforts. “Take SLAYER, for example,” Darski said. “Whatever genre they deal with, they still end up sounding like SLAYER. Even when they were flirting with nu-metal, it was a SLAYER record. Same with BEHEMOTH.”

According to Darski, at least some of the inspiration for the new BEHEMOTH album came from his five-month bout of leukemia he overcame in January 2011, after receiving a bone-marrow transplant. “When I was in the hospital, I was collecting experiences and emotions,” he said. “I’m pretty sure that it’s coming out now. There are moments I catch myself thinking about how my state was back then. It was me versus life, me versus death. It definitely changed my thoughts a lot. It’s 100 percent being reflected in the record and songs I’m writing nowadays. I’m way more radical than I used to be.”

“The Satanist” track listing:

01. Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel
02. Furor Divinus
03. Messe Noire
04. Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer
05. Amen
06. The Satanist
07. Ben Sahar
08. In the Absence ov Light
09. O Father O Satan O Sun!
