The definite MORBID release. 100% official. For the first time. For the last time …
Over 2 decades after the sad demise of Per Yngve Ohlin (better known as “Dead”) Century Media Records released “Year Of The Goat”, a historical anthology of Swedish death and black metal pioneers MORBID. Created in close cooperation with the band’s past members and featuring an extensive interview with Dr. Schitz (taken from Slayer Mag), a historical overview written by Daniel Ekeroth (author of “Swedish Death Metal”) as well as stunning artwork and layout by Erik Danielsson of WATAIN, “Year Of The Goat” is an essential lesson in Swedish metal violence.
One of the UK’s most distinctive metal bands, SAVAGE MESSIAH, has joined the Century Media family in 2017 and presents its fourth album, “Hands Of Fate”, which offers a timeless heavy metal sound that is blessed with incredible song-writing and avalanches of impressive lead guitars and powerful riffs. Notably influenced by Megadeth and Metallica yet showing a hard rock vibe in terms of catchiness, produced by regular collaborator Scott Atkins (Amon Amarth, Cradle Of Filth) and mastered by Dave Collins (Metallica, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper), “Hands Of Fate” develops further from the band’s thrash metal beginnings towards an honest, unpretentious, and utterly enthralling sound. Take a listen to the title track, “Eat Your Heart Out”, “Blood Red Road” or the excellent semi-ballad “Last Confession”, and you will realize that SAVAGE MESSIAH’s 2017 record offers masterful metal-hymns that bear the potential to delight you for ages.
Formed in 1997 and inspired by 90’s American metal greats such as Pantera, Machine Head and Fear Factory, DAGOBA quickly expanded their furious sound with dark, symphonic and industrial elements culminating on what is to become their strongest album to date, “Black Nova”. Shawter – singer, guitarist, composer and leader of DAGOBA – helmed the recordings of “Black Nova”, which took place at Eagle Black, his own studio in Marseille, whereas Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Epica, Heaven Shall Burn) took care of mix and mastering. “Black Nova” sounds massive with rich dynamics, towering riffs, vigorous shouts and infectious melodic choruses all over the place. The equally powerful artwork was created by Seth Siro Anton (Septic Flesh / covers for Moonspell, Paradise Lost, Exodus). From the first single “Inner Sun” with its powerful electronic hook to the driving and gloomy modern thrash of “The Legacy Of Ares”, from the crushing yet majestic “The Infinite Chase” over to the emotional impact of “Stone Ocean”, “Black Nova” impresses with diversity and excellent songcraft. A highly recommended piece of epic modern metal. The CD Book includes two bonus tracks!

FATES WARNING / OSI guitarist Jim Matheos debuts with his ambient instrumental rock project TUESDAY THE SKY which invites you do discover so far untraveled dimensions of his artistic cosmos! “With this kind of music, it’s a lot about creating a mood and letting that sink in and develop over long periods of time, as opposed to the more frenetic format of most prog music”, explains Matheos. Taking cues from artists like Brian Eno, Boards Of Canada, Sigur Ros and Explosions In The Sky, he explores expansive textures and ambient electronica, as well as some of the most colossal riffs he has ever produced. The album also features the talents of God Is An Astronaut’s drummer Lloyd Hanney, who provides a rhythmic backbone that is at once punchy, precise and restrained when necessary. Other guests include long-time OSI collaborator and former Dream Theater member Kevin Moore who plays keys on two songs, and Anna-Lynne Williams (Trespassers William, Lotte Kestner) who provides ethereal vocals (of the non-verbal kind) on two other songs. The result is an ethereal musical journey further affirming Matheos’ status as one of the most diverse and inspired rock musicians.
