Latvian Thrash metal band SAINTORMENT launched brand new videoclip - "Empty Sign"
Public relations: http://www.grandsounds.net
Six long years have passed since the metal hymn Eye Out Of Fire has closed the first EP of an Epic Metal Band from Leipzig called ANTYRA, founded in 2006. Since then the band had to face a lot of tough years. But now, in late autumn 2015, unstoppable like a flood of flames a new era rises: their album debut Pentachronist, a pretty sophisticated concept album recorded with a new line up, is at hand! It is a collection of exclusively written short stories, which were set to music. Each song (respectively story) is introduced by a prologue with partly massive choirs or audio drama effects to get the listener prepared for the coming plot. This matching with Antyrahabitual variety from fantastic elegy by way of pretty fat grooves up to ice cold brute makes Pentachronist live as on CD an
epic metal listening experience of a very special kind. ENJOY!

Saintorment was born in Daugavpils in spring of 2013 as a child of love towards old school metal racket. The first live shows were played during the autumn of 2013.
Starting as a cover band playing tunes of Metallica, Kreator, Pantera, Exodus, the band soon recorded some demo tracks of their own material.
Romans (guitars and leader of the band) and Ed (drums) were the first members who started to play together. Without even a name for their band, they played then only in studio and were developing personal skills. Then they got in touch with Dan (bass), who gave a name to the new-formed collective, and continued to play together.
The band was constantly searching for a lead singer, but didn’t manage to found one, so Romans decided to take the microphone. Around the middle of 2014 they had already played a lot of gigs in Latvia and also in Lithuania. In the end of 2014, the band invited Max (an experienced musician, who played in such bands as Balaguri, Begotten, Asthma) as a second Rhythm/Lead guitar player.
During the summer of 2015 Romans recorded Saintorment’s first album entitled “Well of Sins”, which was released by the end of the year in December.

IMPOLDE new ep releaseRead Now
Swedish Trash/Death metal act Implode is releasing a new ep, this time a tribute to the Swedish legendary crust punk masters Anti Cimex. How come a death metal band do covers on a crust punk act? Well, this is more logical than it seems. The legendary band Anti Cimex began their carriers in the Swedish small town of Mariestad, where Implode comes from. So the members of Implode have always had Anti Cimex as a big inspiration from the very beginning. So Implode feels like paying a tribute to the masters of Crust punk, in their own little way...
This is the first new recording from Implode since the highly acclaimed album "I of Everything" been released in April of 2015. The album was a commercial success in Sweden and entered the official Swedish Charts over most sold albums in Sweden at the release. The band has toured all over EU with legends such like Entombed AD, Grave, Rotting Christ, Twilight of the Gods and more. In 2016 the Implode is in the studio for the most part and record their third album, but they will do some shows also - when the time is right... Henrik Axelsson also plays with THE CROWN and SOLIS OF FATE.

Bay Area thrashers THE KING MUST DIE just released a video for "In Blood".Read Now
The song comes from the upcoming sophomore record, due April 15th. The clip was directed by the guitarist Mike Sloat. The King Must Die
is a thrash metal band formed in 2011 and operating out of the San Francisco Bay Area. All five members of TKMD came of age at the height of the Bay Area thrash scene and those influences are evident in their aggressive, riff-driven, uptempo music.
Their new record, "Murder All Doubt" picks up where their 2014 debut, "Sleep Can’t Hide the Fear", left off and shows a continued evolution of TKMD's signature sound. Guitarists Mike Sloat and Kent Varty trade off galloping riffs and unexpectedly melodic solos with equal skill, while drummer Corky Crossler and bassist Scott Paterson provide a dynamically fluid and tight rhythmic base. Vocalist Doggie Doyle's poetic lyrics, syncopated phrasing, and powerful delivery blend perfectly with the rest of the band to deliver a powerfully complete package. If you’re a metal fan, check out TKMD's "Murder All Doubt”…and don’t miss a chance to see TKMD live!
