Taphos released a new demo.
Sceptic from Poland recently uploaded their first demo to Bandcamp. Symphonic/atmospheric tech death metal from the mid-90's.
Nice, looks like Deathevokation is back!
Interesting find. I'm not sure it works all the time, but I kinda dig what they were trying to do. May just like the production tho.
Yeah it's a bit of a goofy obscurity.
Pretty good, but what happened to the production compared to their 2018 full length?! It adds a dark and cavernous feel to it, but some of the instruments and vocals sound really distant.
Greg Biehl's uploads are usually direct cassette rips and that demo doesn't have a digital presence yet, so it probably sounds like that because cassette rips don't always turn out so good and he's the only person to upload it so far.
That and maybe the conditions of the demo recording were less than ideal?
Edit: this interview just dropped too (but recorded in 2019).
I have a soft spot for this sort of drums-in-another-room mix.
That looks like something 14 year olds would make with a Mad Libs for lyrics. Someone tell me if the music sucks or not, cuz I have better things to spend my time listening to than taking a risky chance on that not being a steamy pile of dog puke.
Very grindy, for you avoid.
Jeroen Paul Thesseling, arguably one of the greatest bass players today, has returned to Obscura!!
Fretless bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling rejoins OBSCURA
Legendary bass player Jeroen Paul Thesseling ( QUADVIUM, SALAZH TRIO, ex- PESTILENCE) has rejoined the German progressive death metallers OBSCURA as a permanent member after a 9-year break. Thesseling, known for his signature fretless playing in death metal and world-fusion, joined OBSCURA in 2007 and recorded the band's critically acclaimed full-length albums "Cosmogenesis" (2009) and "Omnivium" (2011), both released via Relapse Records.
"Perhaps fans are somewhat surprised about my comeback. After leaving OBSCURA in 2011, we stayed in touch and over the years I've visited some of their concerts. Since the departure my main focus has been on exploring 7-string bass guitar and playing different genres. It's really nice to be back in the fold, being involved again in the writing process, collaborating on material for the upcoming sixth studio album and to prepare for intensive touring. We expect to announce a completion of the group's new line-up on short notice", says Jeroen.
Thesseling, who has been touring the world, also recorded PESTILENCE's fourth and sixth studio albums, "Spheres" (1993) and "Doctrine" (2011). Late 2017 he released the debut work "Circulations" with the jazz-fusion group SALAZH TRIO, featuring legendary drummer Horacio 'El Negro' Hernández. In 2019 Jeroen founded the fusion-world-metal group QUADVIUM with fellow fretless bassist Steve Di Giorgio ( TESTAMENT, SADUS, DEATH). QUADVIUM is currently working on their debut album.
Azath released a full length last month that I have only just discovered. I was a fan of their 2018 demo. The monotonous growls still remain which I wasn't huge on from the demo, but this seems pretty interesting compositionally. Apparently the drums were written for a drum machine but then they got a session drummer for the actual recording.
Finally getting a VoidCeremony debut album.
oh hell yeah more malazancore. getting to be quite a few with caladan brood, chain of dogs, invidia etc. this might have the most pedigree of any of them though, basically a DM supergroup. definitely checking this out
