Long awaited new album from merciless thrash metal mosters AGGRAVATOR out on September 19th, through Dead Center prods! Wait for no more no less but kick ass thrash metal madness, made in pure old-school way!
Dutch all-female Dutch Death Metal band SISTERS OF SUFFOCATION has come to an agreement with Hammerheart Records. Sisters Of Suffocation released its debut five-song CD-EP, "Brutal Queen", on April 22 2016 as a D.I.Y. release. The effort combines technical, old-school death metal with great hooklines, but also connects to the 2016 Death Metal scene.
Founded in 2014 in Eindhoven, Sisters Of Suffocation managed very quickly to establish an amazing live reputation and got lots of invitations from venues and smaller festivals. This was noticed by Eindhoven Metal Meeting, who gave them a chance to present themselves for a bigger audience.
It has always been a dream of vocalist Els Prins to start an all-female death metal band, but she didn't seem to be able find the right group of girls to make this dream reality - that is, until she met guitarist Simone van Straten. Sharing a love for extreme music, they recruited drummer Amber de Buijzer and bass player Puck Wildschut and started rehearsing.
Earlier this year, Sisters Of Suffocation finally went into the studio in Antwerp with Martin Furia to record "Brutal Queen", and the first D.I.Y. pressing is already sold out. Hammerheart Records will re-issue this EP on Digi-CD (September) and on LP (November), with spiced-up artwork.
The band is scheduled to perform as a support act for Legion Of The Damned this Autumn. Meanwhile Sisters Of Suffocation will work on their debut album, which is scheduled for release in the second half of 2017.
Sisters Of Suffocation is: Vocals - Els Prins Guitar - Simone van Straten Drums - Amber de Buijzer Bass - Puck Wildschut

CRADLE OF FILTH the UK’s most visionary and hellish outfit are very pleased to announce that they are currently writing new material. The band have been locked away for the past week in a studio in Brno, Czech Republic, working on the follow up to their 2015 opus »Hammer Of The Witches«.
The evening before embarking on their creative quest, rather vocal front man Dani Filth said the following: "As a band we are very much looking forward to our writing session in Brno. It's going to be very inspirational to just bury ourselves away in a rehearsal room in the Czech Republic and knead our ammunition of razor sharp flesh-ripping sonic torments into sinister form. Hopefully when we emerge from our musical chrysalis one week later, something beautiful will be born. The new CRADLE OF FILTH album will be mostly written. Then will come the long Autumnal evenings bringing the monster further to life by dressing it in lyricism. I can hardly wait!
As a band, CRADLE OF FILTH have already written about fifty percent of the material towards the new album, which now requires collating and readdressing. We started writing shortly after returning from our highly successful tour of the U.S. and Canada back in March. We were adrenalised by the whole reaction we received out there, having not been back to that part of the world for a fair few years. The camaraderie of playing to that many people across seven weeks really inspired us to start writing material again so soon after the release of our previous endeavour, »Hammer Of The Witches«.
There are certainly a few songs completed already, though these will undoubtedly be scrutinised thoroughly when we hit the rehearsal studio. It'll just be awesome to play through it all creatively in the rehearsal room.
We can reveal that there is one song carried over from the previous album, a veritable lament entitled 'Achingly Beautiful'. We've worked some more on it, fleshing it out considerably. It is very old school CRADLE OF FILTH, featuring a haunting middle section full of soaring female vocals and choir very akin to 'A Gothic Romance' from the album »Dusk... and Her Embrace«. It may not even make this album's grade in the end, as we're being extremely thorough with quality control, but it's definitely something that is being delivered to the proverbial butcher's block from the off.”
CRADLE OF FILTH chose Brno as a location for several reasons aside from the draw of its elegance and rich architecture; drummer Marthus and second guitarist Ashok live there, plus Brno is also home to Europe's second largest Ossuary, which is essentially a medieval charnel house filled with fifty thousand skeletons, second only in size to the catacombs in Paris.
Italian doomsters THE OSSUARY sign with Supreme Chaos Records. Consisting of members that have been active in the underground scene for long, this new ensemble mortale introduces itself with heavy Doom Rock breathing the spirit of Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus, Pentagram and the thrust of early Heavy Rock bands like Cactus, Captain Beyond, or Wishbone Ash.
The debut album entitled “Post Mortem Blues” will hit the street in January 2017. The title could not be more fitting. Unpolished, pure sounding 8 songs that send you straight back to the 70s where THE OSSUARY would have been easily one of the heaviest bands on the planet.
The band states: “We are really happy as we didn’t imagine this could happen when we first put this new band together just one year and a half ago. Things went fast but we know we worked hard and signing with Supreme Chaos Records is one hell of achievement - the first one in our case – and it’s great to know we have a home for our future record 'mournings.'”
