Argentinian thrash/groove metal outfit Granada‘s third full-length effort PrisionEgo was initially released through Tommy Gun Entertainment in 2015. Since then, it has been made available on compact disc (limited to five hundred copies) and digital formats through Symbol of Domination Productions in late April of this year, coinciding with their current tour schedule. You can also now check out the entire follow-up full-length right here thanks to the label and Grand Sounds PR!
It’s been quite a while since we last heard from Chris and Robb of Zamboni. And, if the recent legal troubles were an indication, it might have been the last time. The NY/NJ crossover thrash act set their sights on relesing a debut full-length album, but had to change their name to Nuclear Hatred, which is now the title of said recording. I reached out to the duo to inquire about said woes, as well as what’s been going on in the group and other such inquiries about the new offering. Check out what they had to say below, and be sure to give the album a spin as well. If you like what you hear, you can pick up it up digitally through their official Bancamp account!
If you’re a fan of bone-crushing doom metal laced with a thick slab of sludge and stoner metal input, then allow me to introduce you to Pensevor. This four-piece has been making their rounds since forming in 2011, and unleashed a three-song EP themselves back in 2013. After three more years, they’re returning with their debut full-length effort, Klothod, which will see a strictly limited physical run through Hibernacula Records, then only be available digitally on the group’s official Bandcamp. Have I got your attention yet?
Independent power metal act Helion Prime just under a year after their debut EP, The Drake Equation. The female fronted group from Sacramento, California, has a solid history within its line-up, immediately making them worth taking note of. Outside of newcomer Jeremy Syeinhouse on bass, you have drummer Justin Herzer and guitarist Jason Ashcraft from Dire Peril, as well as Heather Michele Smith from Graveshadow on vocals. That said, their self-titled first full-length effort has just dropped at THIS LOCATION! For now, you can sample the track “Apollo (The Eagle Has Landed)” right here!
Give Praise Records kicks off their 2016 year with a brand new split release between French grindcore act Department of Correction, and Belgium’s legendary grind freaks Agathocles! This is a six song combination effort, finding five from the former band, and one from the latter. Apochs.net is proud to work with Give Praise and Grand Sounds PR to stream two of the six tracks from this brand new release, which can be heard here.
Formed back in 2013, US-based thrashers War Curse plan to tear the metal world a new one with their debut outing Final Days. Bringing together a mixture of old-school war-themed action along the lines of Slayer, Kreator, and especially Testament, their debut outing Final Days has been picked up by Static Tension Records for a proper 2016 release on cassette to compliment the digital version now available through the group’s Bandcamp account. But, thanks to the awesome folk at Static Tension and Dewar PR, Apochs.net is proud to present “Severed Crosses”, the third track off this infectious first attempt!
