Still Undetected - SCHAMMASCH, ADE, NOCTEM
Since their inception in 2009, Switzerland's SCHAMMASCH have blazed a path of creative evolution. Never restricted by the black metal genre from which they were birthed, their promethean spirit can be charted musically, artistically and philosophically throughout their three previous albums and became most evident on their landmark triple album "Triangle", released in 2016.The new album finds the band at the zenith of their formative powers. "Hearts Of No Light" lays its foundation in the heights of their past work whilst presenting their most flowing and organic approach to date - jet-black at its core whilst vast and expansive in experimentation.
SCHAMMASCH fourth full-length album "Hearts Of No Light" was released on November 8th through Prosthetic Records.
Ancient Roman metal pioneers ADE have just unleashed the new album "Rise Of The Empire". The new album purpose is to get the listener even more involved into the ancient history of Rome, specifically into Caesar's age. Still connected to the traditional old-school death metal, "Rise Of The Empire" delivers a more mature yet aggressive album suitable for old and new generations of fans interested in the Ancient Rome and epic/death metal at its purest.
The concept about their homeland has gathered enthusiastic interest all around the world: "The band was born by the passion for death metal and the history of Rome, in a period when extreme metal bands used to be into northern cultures, German traditions and ancient Egypt myths. It was easy to be focused on our own culture, a practically non-existent topic", comments the band.
The new album "Rise Of The Empire" was released on November 8, 2019 via Extreme Metal Music/Rockshots Records.
