The first thing we realize upon setting foot in Deathtrip’s personal hell is that this album contains something reminiscent of the great black metal records of the 90s.

Many things can change in a seven year period; many things can work for the better or the worse. Fortunately, this hiatus worked for the benefit of ART238. After some intense live shows the band did last year in French soil, they decided that 2014 is the right time to hurl their newest offering (the first in seven years) like a radioactive missile ready to awaken and revert the most primal human instincts. However, after the addition of new members, there are certain elements that have shaped the band’s sound into something different.
Spanish project GARTH ARUM re-emerges through time with its debut album, marking the dawn of a new passion, of a new fire. ‘The Dawn of New Creation’ is ispired by dreams and emotions, venturing further into the depths of the human psyche. A demiurge that leads the path to a new universe, beyond the notion of existence. This is the album of a lifetime, a deliverance of body and soul of the album’s creator Nightmarer, which is finally complete more than ten years after its initial conception.

“On Par With I”, the new guitar playthrough video from Athens based, progressive death metallers ONCE THEM EDENS, can be seen below. The song is composed and performed by the band’s mastermind Ω, and the video was shot and edited by Athina Tousia.
”Omega’s riffing menace leads up to a relatively up-tempo instrumental section that follows and lets the progressive element of the album shine. This song is no other than ‘On Par With I’ and its perplexing rhythmic changes that occur without cessation, tied with an astounding bass guitar and a conclusion that features some
