Debut album of Russian black metal band “Inhein” sends all the shine of Nuclear Blast tins, and the crackle of kitchen mess of underground to hell. Anthem is also given a moral. The album was mastered in Swedish sound studio “Cutting Room”, known by its work with Hypocrisy, Behemoth, Opeth, Katatonia etc.

The album was released on 8th of march on Spanish label “Antichristian Front Records”, the official distributor is “MSR Distro”. The work is balanced on the edge of the lack of skill, schizophrenia and vanguard – disgusting in its foulness. That’s where the twisted entity placed on the cover comes from, drawings of the insane inside the booklet, abominable screeching vocs, recorded at night in the building of puppet theater, which lies in the walls of former prison. They adapt their wretchedness with the help of expressive chaos. The band’s name is interpreted as “In Death’, it symbolizes the state on the other side of existence. “Pestrapture” sends you into the same mental morgue, a must-have for all who despise the forced antinomys and are not afraid to loose their sanity for a while.

INTERNAL NIGHTMARE has inked a deal with the Australian record label High Voltage Records (BLOODDUSTER, EARTH, SIN CITY)

Workhorses of the Australian metal scene, INTERNAL NIGHTMARE have generated impressive local and international interest since their inception, and are currently terrorizing metropolitan and regional Victoria in preparation for their upcoming EP’s release.

INTERNAL NIGHTMARE’s 2009 promotional disc exceeded all expectations and lead single “The Term is Frustration?” was featured in compilations such as Blunt magazine’s “Loud Noises” and Welkin Entertainment’s “Euphony Fusion 3” and will also feature in Stop Time Media’s upcoming “Melbourne Metal Unleashed” DVD, along with the accompanying debut film clip.

The promotional disc substantially raised public interest (along with an appearance on the ABC’s national TV show “Spicks And Specks”), with its unique blend of extreme genres and groove orientated thrash metal proudly displaying the band’s roots, while also providing a clear indication of the band’s direction.

INTERNAL NIGHTMARE’s upcoming debut EP, “Segregation”, is a testament to the band’s ability to combine dirty-yet-technical riffs, thunderous drums and aggressive vocals with a sense of musicality that has been missing since the heyday of bands like PANTERA, SEPULTURA, DEATH and CATARACT (among many others)!

The five-track EP includes a re-recorded version of “The Term is Frustration” and new live favorite “Annexation”.

“Segregation” is due for release late May/early June.

God Dethroned re-signs with Metal Blade Records!
Highly distinguished Dutch death metal greats, God Dethroned, have recently released what is being heralded as one of the best albums of their long career in Passiondale. On the heels of this release, Metal Blade has extended God Dethroned’s contract yet again to continue putting out some of the most intense and unique death metal albums from one of the genre’s best bands.

God Dethroned will be campaigning across North America once again. This time, they’ll be supporting Overkills’ 25th Anniversary Killfest tour throughout April. The tour starts April 1st in Philadelphia at the Trocadero.

Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel comments, “We are very happy to continue our long and great relationship with God Dethroned. We’ve been working with the band and Henri for over a decade and we look forward to more great music from them in the future!”

Henri Sattler, God Dethroned guitarist and vocalist adds, “Once you’re in it, you’re in it for life, the head of Metal Blade in Europe once said to me. It was already a dream come true to sign our first deal with the label back in ’97, and now 13 years later we just put our signature on our third contract with them. It’s just as exciting as it was back then and we’re very proud of earning their trust and support after all these years.”

“We are halfway through the writing process for a new album, which we will record starting end of May. First, we’ll play on the Killfest tour in the U.S. supporting Overkill together with label mates Woe of Tyrants and many other great bands.

Abigail Williams’ axeman Ian Jekelis will take over touring duties for Susan, with whom we parted ways last January. We will announce the name of our new shredder right before we play our first European festival in May.”

God Dethroned’s video for Poison Fog from the Passiondale album can be seen on now on

“nears Emperor levels of soaring blackened metal majesty.” Revolver Magazine

“triumphant collection of furious blast beats and blinding riffs.” Decibel Magazine

“Passiondale is a compact, precise, and immensely rewarding listen, essentially a barbed collection of riffs that you’ll most likely find yourself humming afterward.”

“After 18 years and eight albums, Dutch death metallers God Dethroned have managed to piece together their masterwork.”

..Florida’s INFERNAEON have completed writing their upcoming album for Prosthetic Records and are entering Safe House Production studios to work with legendary guitarist James Murphy (TESTAMENT, OBITUARY, DEATH), who is working with the band from pre-production through mastering. INFERNAEON’s last release, “A Symphony of Suffering” was released in March of 2007, also on Prosthetic.
The band is also proud to announce the addition of guitarists Taylor Nordberg and Steven Harger and bassist Mike Poggione. Frontman Brian Werner had this to say about the new members:

“It is a real breath of fresh air getting these three in the band. Taylor and Steve are both young, 18 and 19, and hungry and their talent and work ethic are second to none. We’ve accomplished more in three months than I’d ever been able to accomplish in a year before! I spent time with Mike Poggione in Monstrosity and he’s really helping us out in our bass player’s absence. Also our drummer Jeramie Kling (The Absence) has really stepped up his game, and in my opinion he could be the next Derek Roddy or Tim Yeung. He has really come into his own as a drummer and it’s an honor to still be working with him. The end result is an absolutely amazing sounding album one that I’m proud to be a part of.”
The band has posted a behind the scenes look at some of the insanity which went on during the writing process of the album at Werner’s, home on a 30 acre compound in central Florida, where anything goes. Named the “Wildest House in America” by both Playboy Magazine and Girls Gone Wild, the band has a reputation for getting out of control, to say the least. Check out the video,
