KETZER (de) – Metal Blade Records

https://ketzergermany.bandcamp.com/
Based in Cologne, Ketzer (“heretic” in German) is comprised of Gerrit (vocals), David (bass), Marius (guitars), Chris (guitars), and Sören (drums), all of who joined together as teenagers to release Satan’s Boundaries Unchained (2009). Hailed as one of the best blackened-thrash metal records of recent years, the quintet’s debut launched them out of the underground and onto some of Germany’s most prestigious festival bills – such as Party San and Rock Hard. Their first European tour took place soon after in 2011, where they conquered new territory: Poland, France, Italy, Denmark, amongst others.

In 2012, Ketzer released their sophomore album, Endzeit Metropolis, which saw the band’s musical direction progress: their raw energy was channelled into a more open-minded, yet faster and darker kind of Heavy Metal. Following a second European trek (featuring Tribulation and Venenum) and more of the scene‘s finest festivals like Extremefest and Hell‘s Pleasure, Ketzer then embarked on their biggest journey so far: the band’s first USA tour! With a small collection of freshly written songs, they broke new ground on American soil in 2014, and upon their return home, were inspired to write new material once again.

In 2016, Starless, the third album by Ketzer and their first on Metal Blade Records, offered songs of the universe and tunes of the spheres, – it took the listener on a journey that was unexpected, yet familiar at the same time. Thematically, the album explored the crack between religion and reality and the search for a truth in between. Consistently following their path with a stripped-down and raw, yet melodic version of their sound, Starless set another milestone in the heretics‘ history. This time, the European roads were conquered in complicity with fellow Black Metal outlaws Svartidauði and Primordial. That year and the next, Starless was brought to more festivals like Summer Breeze and Rock Hard, for a second time.

For two years now, Ketzer have been working on something new, and the result is something new indeed: Somehow linking every aspect essential to their sound through the years, these eight new tunes might well be the strongest Ketzer songs to date. Via Metal Blade Records, a new Ketzer album will be released in spring 2019.

SLÆGT (dk) – Ván Records
https://www.facebook.com/Slaegt
http://slaegt.bandcamp.com/releases
Slægt from Copenhagen, Denmark, is the sound and essence of four hearts and minds locking together and joining forces towards the unknown. The band consists of some of the most energetic musicians on the current metal scene – Olle Bergholz provides the gut plucking bass tone, Adam ‘CC’ Nielsen lets go in a fury of thunderous drumming, Anders M. Jørgensen writhes and takes over souls with his guitar ripping while Oskar J. Frederiksen is in the center, complimenting Jørgensen on guitar and giving the band its vocal expression through passionate and insightful lyrics.
Slægt has found their very own, unique style of playing heavy metal. Stylistically influences are drawn from a broad spectrum of such diverse movements as the NWOBHM, the black metal scene(s) of the 80’s and 90’s and everything in between and beyond. Slægt plays an epic blackened heavy metal but without any kind of limitation when approaching the style. They explore unseen territories and go beyond the obvious norms of heavy metal, which makes them sound fresh and progressive. The darkness within the riffs and lyrics flows with dark blasts of energy.
Oskar J. Frederiksen started the band in 2011 and released a demo, a split 7” and the full-length “Ildsvanger” (Posh Isolation) with Nielsen on drums in 2015, before Slægt became a full orchestra. Slægt released the “Beautiful and Damned” EP (Iron Bonehead Productions) in 2015 which gave the band a healthy dose of attention while also fuelling the fires, that keeps it going. This led to a deal with Ván Records and in 2017 Slægt released their highly acclaimed debut full length as a four-piece: “Domus Mysterium”. With great reviews, nominations and awards as album of the year in both Denmark and abroad, it has certainly been a milestone in Slægt’s journey so far. Following it up, Slægt played victorious concerts at events such as Copenhell, Roskilde Festival and toured through Europe with Venenum in February 2018.
Now Slægt is once again dimming lights and opening fire with the brand new full-length “The Wheel”. A challenging, yet soothing record that perfectly picks up the thread from “Domus Mysterium”. Discover the beautiful and damned sons, from the house of mysteries, doing all they can to escape the boundaries of the wheel.

Slægt announced for Roadburn 2019!

SLÆGT just announced for Roadburn 2019 as part of Tomas Lindbergs curation!

Slægt will play Thursday 11th April 2019!

Here is what Tomas has to say about Slægt:
“When I think of heavy metal, there is a certain feeling I am after. A special haunting, emotional impact that I’m seeking. Nowadays, with a total over-saturation of new bands, I will always be super excited when I get that same feeling that was there when I first got into underground metal. Slaegt is one of those rare examples.

“Saying this, I don’t mean that they are a retro style act in any sense. They are constantly pushing forward, exploring new ways to develop their own style of blackened heavy metal. Fans of Dissection, Morbus Chron and Tribulation won’t be disappointed. I was overwhelmed when I got my hands on their latest offering and I keep coming back to it. I look forward to share those special emotions with the Roadburn fanatics. I think what ALL underground, “true” art is about is about an honest expression and this is something that Slægt has a lot of. To them black metal is not a pose; be ready for some serious realness.”

Tour announcement; “The Putrefying Road of the Fifteen Corridors” w/ DEMILICH (fin) and SPECTRAL VOICE (us)!!!

Killtown Bookings is proud to present the final routing for “The Putrefying Road of the Fifteen Corridors” w/ DEMILICH (fin) and SPECTRAL VOICE (us)!

Demilich have deservedly become one of the most legendary bands to emerge from the Finnish metal underground. While they are obscure in the grand scheme of things, they are well known in the underground and probably need no introduction to most underground death metal fans as they could be considered one of the most important bands in codifying the “dissonant and technical” strain of death metal. Since Demilich have never toured Europe before these concerts will be the first club shows in mainland Europe ever since their inception back in 1990!

Spectral Voice from Denver, Colorado plays slow rotting death/doom from beyond the grave. Focusing on gloomy funeral atmosphere and ancient death metal feeling their 2017 debut album “Eroded Corridors of Unbeing” has created massive international attention towards the band. Signed to Dark Descent Records they return for a follow up tour to last years succesful Euro run with Blood Incantation!

“The Putrefying Road of the Fifteen Corridors” tour will hit 4 international festivals across Europe starting off at the resurrection of KIll-Town Death Fest in Copenhagen, Denmark (6th-9th Sept.). On the way they will also hit Bloodshed Festival in Eindhoven, The Netherlands (14th-15th Sept.), NRW Death Fest in Wermelskirchen, Germany (21st-22nd Sept). Saturday 22nd will be the final show for Demilich, but Spectral Voice will continue another week alone through Eastern Europe ending up the tour at Chaos Ritual Fest in Bülach, Switzerland on the 29th of September!

Do not miss out on this rare oportunity to see these bands!

Tour announcement: SLÆGT (dk) + Maggot Heart (de) ” Secret Fires” tour!

KIlltown Bookings and Swamp Booking proudly present SLÆGT (dk) & MAGGOT HEART (de) “Secret Fires” Tour in October 2018!
Two of the most exciting bands to emerge from the underground in recent years, Slægt and Maggot Heart, are joining forces for a wild ride across Europe in the fall.

Denmark’s Slægt rose to prominence in 2017 with the much acclaimed second album “Domus Mysterium”, a triumphant blend of classic heavy metal and black metal atmosphere, often reminiscent of Dissection’s past opus with a personal, slightly wild streak.

Maggot Heart are about to release in July their debut album, “Dusk to Dusk”- expanding on the sound of the “City Girls” EP, which garnered raving reviews and has sold out two pressings already, their music shuns categorizations and moves freely between post-punk and hard rock, with two feet firmly standing in dark territories of the mind and tales of urban decay.

Both bands have been very active on the live front in 2017, participating in some of the most prestigious festival such as Roadburn, Chaos Descends, Muskelrock and Roskilde Festival and touring incessantly.

As the shadows grow longer and the days colder, both bands will swarm once again across the European soil in a co-headlining tour that promises to be one of the highlight of 2018.

A megalith of the death metal underground whose New York scene association, aside the pioneers of the genre, head into a new chapter. Ever precise to their origins the band has witnessed and experienced the ebb and flow of the scene they helped create.

Whether due to giving their support by providing some their first tour experience. Or having that equaled playing with such an array of musicians and bands in and outside the confines of the band. With 10 studio albums, videos even a TV commercial. Numerous releases being in the form of demo cassettes, 7 inches, LP, CD dedication still holds true with tireless effort. Hall of Fame, Top 10 lists honoring their discography through publications, internet and radio.

Having gathered supporters and fans all along the 25 year journey. Circles devoted to all/specific eras or an audience’s first encounter. Incantation has crushed venues, festivals, and clubs with their rabid attendance. From North, Central and South America. Canada, Europe, Scandinavia, Australia or Japan all have welcomed the inferno that scorched their lands.

For a quarter century now we’ve been creating blasphemous death metal and still our indulgence is eternal…….. Under the Ibex Moon!
