This is Downfall of Nur 2013’s demo in its original rawness and wilderness: a primordial recording yet showing an hidden inspiration that would quickly bring them recording the “Umbras de Barbagia” masterpiece.
Released in 200 copies only.
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!

“Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs” includes a total of 31 songs in a playing time of over 90 minutes compiling rarities and exclusive earworms spanning 2004-2016 (The “Century Media Years” so far…) from the whirling gene pool of noise that is NAPALM DEATH. “Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs”, with audio compiled by Russ Russell and featuring intense artwork by Frode Sylthe, doesn’t only serve as collection-completing effort for die-hards, but also comes in handy for everyone else as challenging stop-gap between NAPALM DEATH’s acclaimed latest release “Apex Predator – Easy Meat” from 2015 and their upcoming 16th studio album, which is currently in the making.

“Focul Viu” (Romanian for “Living Fire”) is the title of Negura Bunget’s first live DVD and double CD featuring a professional recording of a complete 90-minute performance in Bucharest in January 2008. “Focul Viu” is especially valuable because of the fact that it presents Negura Bunget in its classic line-up of Hupogrammos, Sol Faur, and Negru.
On the 22nd September 2017, Devin Townsend Project played a special show at the Ancient Roman Theater in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the landmark Ocean Machine album in full, as well as a set of fan-requested tracks alongside the Orchestra and Choir of Plovdiv State Opera. This concert was filmed and released as ‘Ocean Machine – Live at the Ancient Theater’.
Devin comments: “Plovdiv and this live package represents a lot to me, it signifies the end of one era, and the celebration of another. Amidst a gruelling touring year, this show came together with much blood, sweat, and tears, and the result is the culmination of many aspects of my work on one stage.
Ocean machine was released 20 years ago, and though Marty (drums) is no longer with us, I was able to finally perform the album in its entirety with the original bassist John ‘Squid’ Harder on this night. On a cold evening in an old city in the ancient theatre, many lifelong milestones came to a conclusion on this night and I’m exceptionally proud of it.
The team of individuals who contributed to this project, from the musicians in the band and orchestra, to the crews locally and with this, management, artists, filmographers and most importantly, the audience… made this night a powerful and strangely bittersweet moment I am proud to have documented with this work.
This is a very special live recording of a very special night, and I hope you enjoy it as a monument to the things that inspired it all in the first place.
Love and light,
Limited to 4,000 copies, includes the CD with bonus tracks, patch and poster flag.
“TerrorVision”, the 10th studio album of Belgium’s one and only ABORTED, might be the most brutal, most elaborate and most vicious death metal album of 2018. Delivering the goods to the death metal crowd since 23 years, ABORTED have not only managed to keep the insanely high level of “Global Flatline”, “Necrotic Manifesto” and their latest effort “Retrogore”, they have accomplished the seemingly impossible mission of outrivaling their last three studio outputs on all ends. The 2-track EP “Bathos” has already given a foretaste of what this incredibly talented band is capabable of. And now comes “TerrorVision”, an album filled to the brim with the most wicked riffs, the most twisted solos, the most relentless yet tight drumming and the growling, screaming, cursing gurgloroth voice of Sven De Caluwé. Take a seat, sit tight and blow yourself to kingdom come. It will surely hurt, but it’s definitely worth the suffering.
