IMPENDING DOOM: ‘Death Will Reign’ Title Track Available For Streaming

Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

The title track of “Death Will Reign”, the new album from Southern California juggernauts IMPENDING DOOM, can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget at this location. Due on November 5 via eOne Music, the CD was recorded, produced and mixed by Will Putney at The Machine Shop (SUICIDE SILENCELAMB OF GOD).

IMPENDING DOOM have never sounded uglier and more desperate than on ‘Death Will Reign’,” says Alternative Press.

IMPENDING DOOM has crafted a stunning, deliberate and unrelenting collection with a sense of purpose, drive and continuity. “Death Will Reign” is the culmination of all that has come before, mining the bleak darkness and “scare” factor of last year’s “Baptized in Filth” and the dynamic fury of “There Will Be Violence” and “The Serpent Servant”. All of those elements are injected with the return of the gritty rawness found within the unpolished grind of “Nailed. Dead. Risen”IMPENDING DOOM‘s squealing cult-classic debut that introduced the world to their unique combination of reverent worship and sick gore-core, dubbed Goreship.

“We wanted this album to sound very natural and unpolished,” explains IMPENDING DOOM‘s longtime bassist David Sittig, a part of the lineup since before the first album’s release. “There’s no crazy digital stuff. There are no fake drums. We wanted it to have the feel of our first album with the songwriting from the last one. We’ve gotten better at song structures and so forth over the years, but we wanted to recapture that old-school vibe, too.”

IMPENDING DOOM‘s fourth full-length album, “Baptized In Filth”, sold 4,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 106 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on March 13, 2012, the CD was produced by Andreas Magnusson (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDERTHE FAMINE) and was mixed by Machine, who has previously worked with LAMB OF GODSUICIDE SILENCE and DEMON HUNTER, among others.

PRIMAL FEAR: New Album Title Revealed

Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR have set “Delivering The Black” as the title of their tenth studio album, tentatively due in January 2014 via Frontiers Records. The CD was mixed with Jacob Hansen (VOLBEATPRETTY MAIDSDESTRUCTION) at his Hansen studio in Ribe, Denmark. 12 tracks were recorded during the new album sessions, including “two epic songs, one guitar ballad, and nine crushing metal songs with all the trademarks you know and love to hear from PRIMAL FEAR,” according to the band. The effort was engineered by Achim Köhler (EDGUYMASTERPLAN) and was produced by PRIMAL FEAR bassist Mat Sinner.

“Delivering The Black” features a guest appearance by Norwegian singer Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull (LEAVES’ EYES, ex-THEATRE OF TRAGEDY) on the song “Born With A Broken Heart”.

In a recent interview with Jump MetalPRIMAL FEAR vocalist Ralf Scheepers stated about the musical direction of the band’s upcoming album: “It’s not so far away [from what we’ve done in the past], because we have our style, you know. It was hard for us to imagine… because [2012’s] ‘Unbreakable’ was a pretty tough… and really, in our ears, pretty great album, and for us, it was somehow hard to top it. But as soon as we started to write the new songs, and as soon as I heard what Mat and Magnus [Karlsson, guitar] did in the first place — because then they sent me some stuff and I added my ideas on it — I just thought, ‘Wow, this is amazing.’ And in the end, it really turned out to be a better album than ‘Unbreakable’.”

Frontiers and PRIMAL FEAR in January announced that they have renewed their partnership for another multi-album deal, which will include two more studio releases and one live CD and DVD.

PRIMAL FEAR‘s latest album, “Unbreakable”, sold around 600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 44 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
