22. 3. 2020  Novi spot ponujajo tudi Paradise Lost 

Angleški mračnjaki Paradise Lost kljub vsemu dogajanju v zvezi s koronavirusom ne bodo prestavili izida novega albuma Obsidian. Tako bo le-ta izšel 15. maja letos prek založbe Nuclear Blast.

Že zdaj pa ponujajo spot za komad Fall From Grace, o katerem izvemo sledeče:

Vokalist Nick Holmes: "This is a song about struggling through difficult times, and a point-blank refusal to accept that the end is within range."

Kitarist Greg Mackintosh: "The first song written for 'Obsidian' so probably one of the closest in style to the previous album, [2017's] 'Medusa'. It has quite a few different elements to it but is essentially a classic PL song. Doom laden, but hopefully heartfelt and subtle in places."

Melanholična zasedba Katatonia ponuja spot za komad Behind The Blood, ki se nahaja na prihajajočem albumu City Burials, ki bo izšel 24. aprila prek Peaceville Records. O komadu pa izvemo sledeče: "'Behind The Blood' is a celebration of the heavy metal music that we all grew up with, modified to fit the KATATONIA universe. Whilst lyrically it is telling the tale of dark revelry, to awaken the blood with the sound and taste of thunder."

20. 3. 2020  Alkaline Trio z novim EP-jem 

Ameriški rock trio Alkaline Trio je zaradi koronavirusa bil primoran odpovedati ameriško turnejo z Bad Religion. Zato pa vsaj ponujajo 3-song EP, ki ga je moč zdaj že dobiti digitalno, drugače pa bo na voljo tudi v obliki 7''.

Pravijo: "With the tour postponed and the current state of the world, we feel and hope that some new music will help people transcend the uncertainty and possible fear they might be feeling, if even for a few minutes. Music has always had a way of helping us all cope with unpleasant times. We can only hope that ours can do the same for our fans on some level. We hope you enjoy the songs."

20. 3. 2020  Tudi Heaven Shall Burn imajo nov spot 

Nemški metalcorovci Heaven Shall Burn se vračajo z albumom "Of Truth And Sacrifice", ki je izšel prav danes prek založbe Century Media.

O novem albumu pravi kitarist Maik Weichert sledeče: "The title is exploring the idea of truth and the question what kind of sacrifices you are willing to make for it. Something reflected in the artwork: A warrioress is shielding her child with her own body. While the mother is representing the willingness to sacrifice the child is standing for truth." The original artwork courtesy of Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENTICED EARTH, SODOM) is a triptych showing the mother as a child and her son as a grown-up. "It's a title that refers to numerous current developments: people's blindness in daily life and the unwillingness to make any sacrifices in order to bring about change. Still, there are many people in this world who do exactly this: teachers in Africa risking their lives in order to be able to educate children, journalists and whistleblowers who are putting their own safety at risk in order to flag things going wrong."

Album je dvojni, poleg tega ponujajo ob albumu še 80 minut trajajoči dokumentarec. Weichert dodaja: "We decided that one album wasn't good enough, but we wanted to create a double album as a statement. Our goal was a total work of art that people could dive into, something that leaves a lot of room for surprises and experiments. It was only fair to give our fans twice as much after letting them wait for so long."

Ob izidu albuma pa so predstavili tudi spot za komad übermacht.

20. 3. 2020  Novi spot imajo Me And That Man 

27. marca bo izšla 2. plošča Nergalovega projekta Me An That Man, naslovljena New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 1. Tokrat nam poljski možakar ponuja komad Confession, na katerem gostuje Niklas Kvarforth iz Shining.

Nergal"'Confession' — an ode to gunslingers and saloon singers! The ending will surprise those who aren't aware of my other half and I hope it will put a smile on the faces of those that do; a statement, ME AND THAT MAN is limitless and capable of anything. That Man' for this one, Niklas Kvarforth. I sent Niklas a demo; my voice and lyrics and suggested he change anything he felt he should… only two words from the original demo version remain and happy to report, his version is way better! Some people compared his performance to Peter Steele… that gives me some ideas for the afterlife! Enjoy!"

Za single je seveda posnet tudi spot, v katerem gostuje omenjeni možakar.

Today, being able to announce that Vio-Lence has signed an agreement to bring new music to thrash metal fans and future thrash metal fans around the world with our partners Metal Blade Records is a very proud moment for me and Vio-Lence.
Metal Blade has been involved in thrash metal since the beginning with their compilation 'Metal Massacre', and they have stood the test of time because of their love for heavy music.
Thank you everyone at Metal Blade Records for believing in Vio-Lence and for being fans of the music I love."

19. 3. 2020  Nov single ponujajo progresivci Ajna 

Madžarska progresivno-eksperimentalna zasedba Ajna (fotka: Ildiko Győri) ponuja spot za komad Rengeteg

Koncept pesmi in spota pojasnjuje bend takole: "Rengeteg is an ambiguous word in Hungary, meaning a vast forest and plenty of something. This track is one of the most recent in our repertoire and may be slightly different than others before. It became more receptive and melodic, which is why we chose this title of the record too. For these reasons, it was no question that we were also shooting the first video clip for this song. Our bass player wrote and directed the video. Due to the close release date, preparations had to be made at a rather tense pace. Figure out the storyline, find an actress and find a good location and the hardest, to find a date where everyone is available. Because of this we had only one day to shoot, which could have ruined by the weather, but we were lucky. It was hard, but we managed to condense almost everything we wanted into one day and the post-production was compiled in a record time by our friend Laszlo Incze, who was also the cameraman for the clip. We missed a few shots only for refinement work, but overall, we are very pleased with the outcome. We hope you’ll enjoy it."

Single je del prihajajočega albuma Rengeteg, ki izide aprila prek založbe Inverse Records.

14. 3. 2020  Triptykon maja z live ploščo 

Kultna zasedba Triptykon, ki jo vodi T. G. Warrior (Hellhammer, Celtic Frost), bo maja izdala live album, naslovljen Requiem (Live At Roadburn 2019), zadeva pa bo v več formatih izšla prek Prowling Death Records/Century Media Records.

Kar je posebnega pri tej plošči, je to, da gre za zaključek trilogije, ki so jo Celtic Frost pričeli dolgo nazaj, celotna zadeva pa je še toliko bolj močna, saj jo spremlja orkester.

TG Warrior pravi: "We are truly, deeply delighted to be able to have been granted the opportunity to finish this unique project begun by CELTIC FROST so many years ago, and to finally share the completed recording with the world. This album is the result of two years of passionate work, and it marks the conclusion of a musical idea first considered over three decades ago. Moreover, this 'Requiem' also represents drummer Hannes Grossmann's first recording with TRIPTYKON, and we are very proud to feature him in such an extraordinary context. It was an incredible honor to collaborate with the Metropole Orkest, conductor Jukka Iisakkila, guest vocalist Safa Heraghi, and the esteemed Roadburn festival. In fact, there couldn't have been a better partner for the 'Requiem' project than Roadburn. We are releasing this 'Requiem' album in memoriam of our deeply missed friends and collaborators Martin Eric Ain and HR Giger."

Live album sestavljajo trije komadi:

01. "Rex Irae" (06:34 min.) (First appeared on 1987's "Into The Pandemonium" album by CELTIC FROST)
02. "Grave Eternal" (32:28 min.) (Newly written middle part)
03. "Winter" (06:54 min.) (First appeared on 2006's "Monotheist" album by CELTIC FROST)
