Rejoice, lovers of Lovecraftian metal! French black metallers The Great Old Ones are now streaming not one, but two new tracks: "Antarctica," and "The Elder Things." Both are set to appear on their upcoming album Tekeli-li, out April 16th, and can be heard at this location. As was previously noted here, Tekeli-li will be a concept album of sorts, focusing on H.P. Lovecraft's At The Mountains Of Madness. What are your thoughts on these new cuts?
Brace yourselves, ladies and gentlemen: things are about to get trippy. Finnish black metallers Oranssi Pazuzu have just released a new track from their upcoming album Valonielu, described as "what happens when psychedelia, black metal, and space rock collide." The track, titled "Olen Aukaissut Uuden Silmän" (that's "I Have Opened A New Eye"), can be streamed over here.
After the streaming of "Malefica" back in April, and some vague details from Ván Records, things are starting to come together more clearly regarding the release of the new The Ruins Of Beverast album. Alexander Von Meilenwald's blackened doom project is currently streaming yet another song from the upcoming Blood Vaults - The Blazing Gospel Of Heinrich Kramer, titled "Ordeal," which can be listened below in the YouTube video.
Dutch black metal duo Urfaust announced that they will be dropping a split album with American one-man folk metal project King Dude. The split between the two bands has not yet been given an official release date, however it will be out late August/early September through the German label Van Records.
