Trance-Metal skullbangers debut their video Breaking the Space.  Check it out below!

 

Created in 2006 through a mutual love of Scandinavian melodic death metal, Kent-based septet SILENT DESCENT added trance elements to their music to create a unique sound.

Hailed by Metal Hammer magazine as ‘the trance-metal juggernaut the world has been waiting for’ British septet Silent Descent are well-established as a rising force in the British metal scene.

‘Duplicity’, the band’s critically acclaimed 2008 release came as a breath of fresh air to listeners and has rapidly gained popularity in several countries worldwide. The music video for title track itself topped The Pit’s viewer rated charts beating a number of worldwide metal heavyweights. With the ethos of an unsigned band, the self-produced album engineered by guitarist Tom Callahan presents both the massive sound of a modern metal record and the raw, edgy excitement of a band entering unchartered territory.

Their second album ‘Mind Games’ was released in May 2012 in the UK and Japan via Rising Records and JVC Victor respectively.The innovation displayed on their album is only equaled by their inimitable live performance. With strobes, lasers and sheer energy, Silent Descent provide a show that’s not only intense and gripping, but also unforgettable. Having played at Bloodstock Festival 2008 and Download Festival 2009, 2010 and 2012 they have proved their worth in today’s metal scene and have gained countless fans along the way.

JOE SATRIANI, GUS G., MICHAEL AMOTT Featured In Eternal Descent Volume 2

Continuing to explore the unholy alliance that has long existed between the worlds of heavy metal and fantasy comics, multi-media phenomenon Eternal Descent returns with the second volume of the much-heralded comic saga. A trailer is now online below:

Collecting six single issues, an exclusive Cobalt one-shot, and extensive art galleries into a 200-page graphic novel set for release in March 2013 by IDW Publishing and available for pre-order worldwide, Eternal Descent Volume 2 immerses fans in a dark fantasy world where demons and angels battle for supremacy alongside some of the biggest names in metal, including ARCH ENEMY, FIREWIND, PERIPHERY and JOE SATRIANI.

With the fallen Sirian consigned to his fate and Lyra consumed by her inner demons, Loki’s designs draw ever closer to their terrible conclusion. As the conflict rips into the fabric of time, Gus G. returns with an unlikely guide, offering a glimmer of hope for our heroes… The disturbance reaches far across the universe and heralds the arrival of Joe Satriani, The Extremist, whose incredible energies bring balance to the cosmos, but leave our world consumed by Khaos magic. Michael Amott lies at the heart of this volatile new reality, empowered by mysterious amber artifacts and rivalled only by Misha Mansoor, a time-traveling wanderer wielding unparalleled technology! With lives lost, heroes reborn, and darkness rising, don’t miss the climactic resolution to Eternal Descent Volume 2!

The brainchild of British guitarist and comic creator Llexi Leon, who has teamed with American animation veteran Shaun McLaughlin and DC Comics writer Justin Peniston to bring his unique artistic vision to fruition, Eternal Descent is set in a fantasy universe where lost souls lurk in every shadow, and darkness veils sinister designs. Heavy metal could be the key to salvation… or the gateway to destruction.

Offering comics, graphic novels, animated shorts, limited edition ESP guitars, a signature Digitech ­effects pedal and an upcoming video game to keep fans occupied, Eternal Descent is fast becoming an international phenomenon.

Set to become a 21st century cult classic, fans of comics and heavy metal alike will be staggered in the scale of Eternal Descent’s ambitions and the second volume of the cult comic series promises to plunge readers even more deeply into the graphic novel’s dark, multi-faceted world.

WORMED: Madrid’s Sci-Fi Death Metallers Premiere New Track Via NPR

WORMED: Madrid’s Sci-Fi Death Metallers Premiere New Track Via NPR

Today respected radio portal NPR (National Public Radio) brings forth “The Nonlocality Trilemma,” from sci-fi death metal space voyagers, WORMED. The exclusive track premiere comes from the band’s forthcoming studio outing, Exodromos. Commended for its “astronomically high mindfuck factor” by Decibel Magazine, the 10-track production serves as the prequel to Planisphaerium (originally released in 2003 in Japan then remastered last year by Willowtip), which centers itself around futuristic science concepts and chaotic visions of the last human left in the cosmos. Recorded at Sadman Studios in Madrid, Spain and mastered by Mika Jussila (Amorphis, Impaled Nazarene, Children of Bodom, Nightwish etc.) at the infamous Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland, Exodromos will be unleashed upon the masses on March 26, 2013 via Willowtip Records.

 

Comments the band of the pulverizing hymn: “’The Nonlocality Trilemma’ talks about the escape of Krighsu from planet Earth. This is one of the tracks where Krighsu begins to question life and worth of his mission. Their extremely technological spacecraft takes off quickly and breaks the barrier of space time through the interstellar medium in seconds, leaving the solar system forever. Krighsu is one of the main characters in the WORMED concept. He represents the consciousness of humanity in a futuristic and technological context. He carries the human seed, and he’s the last hope of human life. The album in particular talks about the demise of the solar system and the universe in the year 8K. Krighsu is entrusted with the salvation of human life.”

Turn up “The Nonlocality Trilemma,” and shatter your planet HERE.

Sophisticated, sharp and meticulously calculated, with Exodromos WORMED hurls a maniacal ambush of concentrated brutality and deep space delirium. Made of dissonant yet dynamic hyper-technical guitar traveling at breakneck speeds, the record offers up some of the band’s most technical and plainly obliterating material to date. For Exodromos preorders, got to THIS LOCATION.
