The band comments: «We started working on the new album last winter and now we are more than half-way to completing it. This time we’ve worked differently than on our earlier releases since our line-up doubled in 2019. From being only John Falk and Fredrik Håf we’ve now added Oksana Rage (Teodolit) on bass and Johan Vikholm (Sorcery) on guitar. Håf handles the vocals as usual and Falk the guitars, recording, mixing and mastering. Devourer is still an independent DIY band and evolves with every release. The new album will be our best by far, still remaining true to our signature sound but developing it further.»

Mr Strangler Trilogy is a 3 album concept about a fictional serial killer, Mr Strangler, and his crew.
 

The Ogre Inside – Act I :
The Ogre Inside is an album about inner struggle, about dark desires, and how society can oppress your will. This album is about Mr Strangler’s childhood. How he discovered his dark desires, tried to hide them and fight against them. This is a fight no one can win. This fight creates the feeling of being devoured on the inside, by an insatiable Ogre. The Ogre that devours you from the inside always wins. We have all experienced this kind of feeling. The album is an invocation, a way to set the Ogre free, embrace your ”true self” and allow your darkest desires to express themselves. It’s an incitement to act. The Ogre Inside won this inner struggle, giving birth to Mr Strangler.
 

The Darkest of Human Desires – Act II
In the second opus, Mr Strangler, by embracing his “true self “, expresses his dark impulses without limitations and has no boundaries. With his crew, Mr Strangler commits murders and massacres. He also invites everyone to make a step forward and act, invites you to express your darkest desires and join his death cult. For Mr Strangler and his team, the Ogre was released. They let the darkest of human desires be : murder.
 

No Monsters in God’s Eyes – Act III
In this final act, Mr Strangler’s bloody odyssey comes to an end. He is in jail awaiting execution. This final Act is his testament. Faced with the imminent end of his life, he takes stock of his life and begins a dialogue with his death and enjoins everyone to continue his work… the work of God, because if God exists everything is his. And even the worst monsters are the children of God. There are no monsters in God’s eyes.

Just after he died, Mr Strangler became a kind of messiah for an enigmatic community : The Stranglings , led by The Guide. Growing and growing, this community travels from town to town, joined by people fleeing the modern world for a new life.

NUCLEAR WARFARE release video for “Death By Zuccini”

Thrashers Nuclear Warfare released their sixth studio album “Lobotomy” on August 28th, 2020. Now, the German collective have published a video for the track “Death By Zuccini”, a not-so-serious story where vegetables seem to be the main characters, therefore raising more questions than the answers you’ll find on this video. As these guys are celebrating 18 years of activity, it’s awesome to know that their sense of humour is still intact!

Despite the video, “Lobotomy” is nothing but serious business. The album contains 9 songs of the finest and solid Thrash Metal with a great old school vibe.

Rough Man’s Snivel: New single “Waiting for Thoth’s Final Verdict” now available

Russian post-metal collective Rough Man’s Snivel have just released a new single entitled “Waiting for Thoth’s Final Verdict”, a 10-minute journey about the Egyptian kingdom of the dead, Duat. The track focuses on the souls of the dead as they fearfully await the final judgment of Thoth, weighing their hearts with a feather. The lyrics voiced their horror at the feeling of close reckoning and appreciation of their own lives. Compositionally, the track is divided into two parts – a more conventional introduction and development, and an almost fully instrumental outro, which paints a musical picture of the arrival of a god and the beginning of judgment.

The track is taken off from the band’s upcoming album “Deadman”, which explores the representation of death by different cultures and literary writers. The storyline of the album is based on the journey of a deceased soul through the afterlife of various religious denominations – from the Scandinavian Hel to the Egyptian Duat. The main idea behind the album is to convey the atmosphere of these worlds musically and to guide the listener through them.

Rough Man’s Snivel deliver a mixture of Post-Metal, Black Metal, Sludge and Progressive Metal, with some elements from folk and ambient music.

New KORPSESOTURI lyric-video online

Finnish Death Metallers KORPSESOTURI have released a lyric-video (both in Finnish and English) of the track “Ihmisyyden Rippeet” as a second advance single from their sophomore album “Korpskrist”, which will be released on October 22nd, 2020 through Xtreem Music on CD & 12″LP formats.

“Korpskrist” is a brutal 10 song opus featuring pure and uncompromising death metal to the jugular! Combining the heaviness of European bands like GRAVE, UNDERGANG or CREMATORY (Swe), with the brutality of American bands like INCANTATION, ROTTREVORE or CANNIBAL CORPSE, KORSESOTURI combines the best and most brutal stuff of the classic old school sound to create a personal and relentless style, not suitable for weak ears.
