Mephisto: Signing With Wormholedeath Records & Announce Pentafixion Artwork

Cuban black metal pioneers, Mephisto, are about to release their newest album Pentafixion. Mephisto have been active since 1997 and left their mark on the Cuban metal scene with their unique sound and style. Pentafixion will be released via Mephisto‘s new label, Wormholedeath Records. The band will unleash their first single soon.

Mephisto states about signing with Wormholedeath Records: “On behalf of all members of Mephisto we wish to announce that we have been offered a contract with the long established and well respected Italian label WormHoleDeath Records.

It is our pleasure to announce that after some discussion, Mephisto have accepted the offer and now enthusiastically join the label. We can’t wait to start working with the team at WormHoleDeath after following their label and their artists for many years. To now be considered part of this family is a long awaited dream come true. We are excited to be bringing our style of Cuban Black Metal to the world thanks to the relationships WormHoleDeath has with its partners including Warner / Chappell Music Holland BV and The Orchard Inc. (Sony Music Ent). We look forward to our first release with Worm Hole Death which is our full length album “Pentafixion”, an album that we have been working on for the best part of 2 years. Who knows, maybe the back catalogue will be released sometime on WHD too!

We’d like to officially thank Carlo from WHD for being so passionate about securing us to the label. The work and dedication shown by him is incredible! From finding us in Subtle Death Magazine, to reaching out to its editor (Omar Vega) to contact us, to the late night calls to our management (in Australia), all the way through to walking us through the deal. We couldn’t be happier knowing that our music and our career are in great hands with WHD.

So what can you expect from us now?

Well just because you can see the mountain doesn’t mean the climb has finished. Now the hard work begins to reward our fans for their patience waiting on our new album and to show WHD that the new kids on the block came to kick heads and take names.”

Look out world…. Mephisto, the pioneers of Black Metal in Cuba have just been unleashed on the world and it’s all thanks to WormHoleDeath Records!

EWIGKEIT: Release Opening Track Patent of Death from Upcoming EP Depopulate

Ewigkeit’s new EP Depopulate will be released on January 23rd via Death To Music Productions. Today, you can get a taste with the new lyric video for the opening track Patent of Death. The EP was written & recorded during the lock-down period of the Covid19 Pandemic of 2019-to-20…

Timed to coincide with the global roll-out of the vaccine, Depopulate looks at the paranoia surrounding the virus, its social effects and the power wielded by the influential biotech industry. Unlike the recent 70’s rock-styled EP XXIII, the new EP Depopulate is a unique composite of melodic Death Metal and post-Covid19 conspiracy theories with blackened touches.

Ewigkeit is the long-running experimental Metal band of James Fogarty, who also performs Vocals / Guitars / Keys for Norwegian Progressive Metallers IN THE WOODS, vocals and keys for English Cult Black Metal band OLD FOREST, and is the main-brain behind dormant Heraldic Templar Metal band JALDABOATH (amongst other projects).

The EP is released on all streaming platforms on 23/01/21, via Death To Music productions (www.DeathToMusic.com) – an antidote is not assured.

Therein: Australian Progressive Metallers Release Visualizer for ALH84001

Brisbane Progressive Metallers Therein released a visualiser video for the latest single ALH84001 from their recently released album Aramitama.

Talking about the video, singer Cameron states:”ALH84001 tells the (technically true) story of a meteorite’s journey to Earth from the perspective of the meteorite. Torn from its home on Mars, thrown into space for millions of years, and ultimately colliding with Earth. This song was composed by band guitarist Ryan Boyd, inspired by the events surrounding the real-life meteorite known as ALH84001. The Martian meteorite was the centre of controversy when it was discovered as it was initially believed to contain signs of extraterrestrial life – however, the song focuses on its last moments hurtling through space, burning up in the atmosphere, and finally smashing into the ground.”

The painting, titled Four Souls by Nagashima, also holds the inspiration for the name of the album – Aramitama – which loosely translates to ‘rude soul’ and is part of the ‘Mitama’ or four souls.



Line-up:
Cameron Whelan – Guitar, Vocals
Ryan Boyd – Guitar
Ned Gulliford – Drums, Vocals
Charlie Limpus – Bass
