VIROCRACY to release debut full-length “Irradiation” via Black Sunset/MDD!

Southern German Progressive Death Metal Maniacs Virocracy have signed with Black Sunset/MDD to release their debut album “Irradiation”, on March 20th!

These gentlemen accompanied by a lady on vocals create a sound that can only be pressed into a drawer under duress. Although the generic term “Progressive Death Metal” is a rough description of what the listener can expect, the whole work is actually more complex and at the same time more impressive.

The debut features 9 tracks mixed and mastered by Christoph Brandes in the Iguana Studios (Necrophagist, Deadborn, Pessimist).

OzNor – “Stormbringer”

OzNor – “Stormbringer”
Self-released / Distrokid
20 September 2019

OzNor is a one man instrumental studio project formed in 2019, mostly influenced by heavy metal but thrash metal as well, with focus on the melodic solo guitar.

The self-released and self-produced debut album released on September 20th 2019 brings different moods from heavy, fast and classic old school metal sounds to slow compositions and ballads. The songs are metaphorical, using the forces of nature, which are dangerous but life giving, as well as the forces of mankind to evoke feelings in those who listen to it. As with all instrumental music, in the end it is up to the imagination of the listener.

SUBVERSIVE: Watch the video for the debut single “Alethea”

Portuguese prog rock/metal outfit SUBVERSIVE have published a video for the track “Alethea”, which is the first single advance from the band’s upcoming full-length “Dissonance”.

Subversive is born from the need for creation between Miguel Mateus and Miguel Branco, creating the embryo of the themes for an album.
After recording the bulk of the songs, they invited David Pais to join in the creation of vocal lines and lyrics and after that Xinês joined in the percussive wing.
The result of this work, inspired by several philosophical strands and currents of thought, is given the name “Dissonance”.
The final result was then mixed and mastered by Daniel Cardoso (Ultrasound Studios), and the launch is scheduled for the summer of 2020.
The live debut of this new project is already scheduled for the 7th of June, in the already celebrated Comendatio Music Fest, in Paço da Comenda (Tomar).
