Dethrone the Sovereign Releases Torch of Prometheus!

Dethrone the Sovereign releases new single leading to full length debut!

Utah-based quintet Dethrone the Sovereign is back with a brand new single, “Torch of Prometheus”, that will lead up to their debut full length, out this July via Famined Records.

Right from the start, expect a new and improved sound from the band: they manage to mix melody and aggressive riffing in an incredibly catchy way that is bound to leave listeners wanting more. The quintet is a breath of fresh air in the Progressive Metal and Deathcore worlds: don’t expect harsh vocals atop never-ending chugs, but instead, be prepared to be hit with crisp, clean riffs, pummeling drums, a vibrant bass line, and a vocal delivery that will blow you out of the water. When the band fires on all cylinders, it’s clear to see that they’ve worked hard to craft the perfect ambiance and vibe that permeates the album, and that can be easily found in “Torch of Prometheus”.

“Torch of Prometheus” is the second single taken from the album Harbingers of Pestilence, coming out this July, that the band has worked on with producer Stetson Whitworth (Chelsea Grin, Get Scared). An intriguing, ambitious and eclectic release that fans of Between the Buried and Me, Fallujah, and The Faceless will not want to miss out on.

The band briefly elaborated on the track: “Our newest single is about humans interfacing with artificial intelligence, or what is sometimes called the singularity. This track explores the concept of transcending human limitations of consciousness and mortality through advanced technology.”

Dethrone the Sovereign is a 5-piece progressive metal band from Salt Lake City, UT (USA). Originally formed in 2008, the band has gone through several member changes over the years. After locking in a solid drummer in 2010 and a monster vocalist in 2015, the band finally feels complete and ready to take on the world. Dethrone the Sovereign has released two 6-song albums which were met with great reviews, a self-titled EP in 2009 with the follow up EP “Autocracy Dismantled” in 2013. Their debut full length album titled “Harbingers of Pestilence” will be released later this year via Famined Records (Victory). The band has been honored to share the stage with huge names including Unearth, After the Burial, Veil of Maya, Animals as Leaders, Periphery, Born of Osiris, The Contortionist, The Faceless, and The Black Dahlia Murder who inspired the band’s name (“Thy Horror Cosmic” lyrics). They’ve opened for several big tours in their hometown including Summer Slaughter, Thrash and Burn, Atticus Metal Tour and completed a handful of their own successful tours across the western U.S. Blending classical and modern influences, balancing progressive technicality with brutal force and melody, Dethrone the Sovereign seeks to distinguish itself as a unique presence among the metal community.

Extreme Metal Originators VENOM INC. Return with New Full-Length Album, “Avé”!

Regardless of your take on black metal forefathers Venom, they are the undisputed originators of extreme metal as we know it. Almost 40 years after their inception, the revitalized 1989-1992 line-up of guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn, vocalist/bassist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan and drummer Anthony “Abaddon” Bray have returned with a monster of an album.

After months of anticipation, VENOM INC. will release their upcoming full-length opus, entitled Avé, on August 11, 2017 via Nuclear Blast. Pre-orders for the new album are available now at: www.nuclearblast.com/venominc-ave

The first single from Avé, entitled “Dein Fleisch”, can be viewed below:

VENOM INC. was born during an impromptu live set at 2015’s Keep it True Festival in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany. The on-stage reunion was a rousing success amongst Venom fans and music industry personnel alike, and although it was originally only set up for fun, Dolan began receiving numerous show offers for VENOM INC. from booking agents around the world. What started as a live set to celebrate Venom‘s legacy immediately turned into a serious reunion discussion. The rest is history.

While unexpected at the outset, the end result of this reunion is an album that true Venom fans will gladly add to the top of their playlists. Vocalist/bassist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan says, “We tried to shape Avé so that it comes at you dark, then it gets bright and heavy and just keeps growing into some kind of monster.”

Avé track listing:

  1. Ave Satanas
  2. Forged In Hell
  3. Metal We Bleed
  4. Dein Fleisch
  5. Blood Stained
  6. Time To Die
  7. The Evil Dead
  8. Preacher Man
  9. War
  10. I Kneel To No God
  11. Black N Roll

Going in to writing Avé, VENOM INC. realized their live performance was the key to creating an album that would be a metal classic. It was clear that any songs the trio came up with had to have the intensity, the honesty and the aggression that was happening for VENOM INC. in a live situation. Simply put, they needed to translate what they do on stage onto a record. Not once did they look back on the Venom catalogue and think, “We have to write another ‘Black Metal’ or another ‘Schizo’…” The focus is on VENOM INC. and everything the rejuvenated three-piece do in the here and now.

Dolan adds, “Expect 100% pure, honest, solid, hard, dark, thought-provoking metal… like it was, is and forever shall be. Classic old-school, but with the ferocity and energy that we display in our live show. We are proud of this album and our new home at Nuclear Blast, as well as our whole team – management, PR, agents, sponsors and most of all, YOU. Thank you! See you somewhere on this Blood Stained Earth!”

VENOM INC. will kick off their upcoming Blood Stained Earth headline tour, featuring support from Goatwhore, Toxic Holocaust and The Convalescence, on September 1. Tickets for each date of the Blood Stained Earth tour are on sale today, at 10:00AM local time, at the links below.

HELLEBORUS’ New Single “Prayer Of The Undying” Streaming!

Stirring the cauldron of black metal, Colorado blood brother duo Jerred & Wyatt Houseman’s HELLEBORUS unleashed their debut album “The Carnal Sabbath” in June 2016 via Satanath Records (Russia), Black Plague Records (USA) and on vinyl via Flesh Vessel (USA). They supported the album with festival appearances at Shadow Woods, 71 Grind, Black Mourning Light plus tours and show dates with bands such as Fleshgod Apocalypse, Cannibal Corpse, Taake, Cattle Decapitation, UADA, Destroyer of Light, Lotus Thief and more.

Taking a short hiatus to enter their studio dungeon, the brothers have a recorded a new single for fans entitled “Prayer Of The Undying”.

HELLEBORUS comments on the track:

“This new single stands solitary as an offering to the Mother of the Night. The lyrics are a prayer or hymn of introspective nature reflected in the Orphic vein. We encounter symbolism of The Hanged Man and the essence of the Mandrake root. I use flowers as symbolic offerings similar to that of The Language of Flowers, a Victorian tradition. The man surrenders himself in attempt to gain enlightenment and the Mandrake is uprooted by the Divine Hand.”

A full stream of their debut album “The Carnal Sabbath” can be heard at: http://helleborusblack.bandcamp.com/album/the-carnal-sabbath.


Conceived within the womb of Execration, Helleborus is the latest emanation of Jerred & Wyatt Houseman. Like the enigmatic and deadly winter flower from which the project takes its name, Helleborus pushes the exploration of traditional black metal into the uncharted territory of sensual duality and mysticism. Building on their professional experience with Execration and personal experiences through Akhenaten, the Houseman brothers sought a deeper expression of their experiential-driven musical style that audiences can connect with through a union of opposites.

“We’ve always had a vision for the type of black metal project Helleborus would be. We wanted to explore and deliver a darker and yet more romantic side of black metal. There is an unknown side of metal that is masculine and powerful, yet sensual and respectful; controlled chaos.” comments vocalist Wyatt Houseman.

Album Band Line Up features: Wyatt (vocals, lyrics) & Jerred Houseman (producer, all instruments)

Live Band Line Up features: Brent Boutte’ – Drums, Jerred Houseman – Guitar & leads, Wyatt Houseman – Voice, Ian Horenman – guitar & rhythms
