The official music video for ‘Blinded’, a brand new song from California metallers As I Lay Dying, can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming seventh full-length album, “Shaped By Fire”, which will be released on September 20 via Nuclear Blast.

Singer Tim Lambesis comments: “We had an incredible experience working with Frankie Nasso, who chose to direct the video for ‘Blinded’ based largely on his personal passion for the band. Additionally, there was incredible energy from fans who showed up for the shoot which made it an unforgettable experience!”

“Shaped By Fire” was produced by the band and was mixed by Joseph McQueen at Sparrow Sound in Los Angeles, California, while mastering was completed by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in Nashville, Tennessee. The only exception was for the track ‘My Own Grave’, which was produced by As I Lay Dying, co-produced by Drew Fulk and mixed by Adam “Nolly” Getgood. Continue reading »

Majestica – “Above the Sky”

Out of the ashes of ReinXeed comes Majestica to fill your ears with galloping fast drums, blazing riffs and solos and bass work that equals the complexity from the guitars.

Before joining Sabaton, guitarist/vocalist Tommy Joohansson was busy with his own power metal band ReinXeed, but unfortunately as Saboton grew, ReinXeed seemed to just fade away.  Now the band is back and known as Majestica, a nod to the 2010 ReinXeed album Majestic.

Given the tagline “Swedish symphonic power metal”, my expectations were pretty much set as to what I was going to hear when I fired this album up.  The band chose to make a video for the first track “Above the Sky” which shows the band playing the scarily fast power metal track on an airport runway.  Much along the lines of Dragonforce, the song is as much a vehicle to showcase the talents of the musicians as it is a regular song.  The very opening is even an amazing bass riff by Chris David.  As expected for the genre, vocals are clean and clear and show quite a bit of range from Tommy ReinXeed although the highest register pieces seem a bit forced and thin compared to the rest.  The song gallops along at breakneck speed with periodic perfect gang chorus sections, while all the time seeming to just set the stage for the inevitable trade-off guitar solos and drum and bass solo in this particular case.

‘One Million Suns’ is the new single from Nightland, which appears on their upcoming album. The video, directed by Matteo Ermeti, sees the participation of Elektra Amber, while the song is produced by Simone Mularoni at Domination Studio. Check out the video below.

As previously reported, Nightland will play Friday Nov. 8th. at the 12th edition of Brainstorm Festival in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.

Nightland was formed in 2007, inspired by European Viking/Folk Metal bands. Through the years the sound of the band was influenced by symphonic music and Death Metal, combining scream and growl voices to epic and powerful choirs. Continue reading »

‘Please Say No’, a brand new song from The Devil Wears Prada, can be streamed below. The track, which is one of the most experimental-yet-powerful songs the band has ever released, is taken from the group’s upcoming album, “The Act”, which will be made available on October 11 via Solid State Records.

‘Please Say No’ is based off of a scene within the novel ‘Never Come Morning’ by Nelson Algren,” said singer Mike Hranica. “This song is more difficult to explain than any other set of lyrics I’ve assembled. Saying the song is derivative of class injustice is insufficient and saying the song is born of a violent crime is cheap. Lyrically, I’d urge interested listeners to read the book. Musically, I’ll encourage listeners to enjoy what I consider to be our moodiest effort on ‘The Act’.”

The members of  The Devil Wears Prada consistently choose to both challenge themselves and the world around them. The group — Mike Hranica (vocals), Jeremy DePoyster (vocals, guitar), Andy Trick (bass), Kyle Sipress (guitar), Jonathan Gering (keys, synthesizers) and Giuseppe Capolupo (drums) — bends and breaks all boundaries on its seventh full-length and debut for Solid State Records. Pulling plain-spoken poetry through distorted discord and dissonance, the six-piece delivers a dynamic and definitive statement. Continue reading »

Nordic Mission is VERY proud and happy to announce that GROMS (God Rules Over My Soul) will play at this year’s NordicFest in Oslo, Norway!

This is a dream come true, since GROMS was among the very pioneers of Christian Extreme Metal in Norway and Europe, playing their pure heavy oldschool death metal.
GROMS released their only album “Ascension” in 1994, and the band has not performed live or even met together since 1996!That is also why it was a hard task finding a crisp picture of these fantastic musicians. Do NOT miss this!

Nordicfest  will be held in Oslo, Norway from 1-2nd of November. Other bands playing are: War of Ages (USA), Drottnar (NOR), Hortor (MEX), Opus Irae (GER), Antidemon (BRA), The Weakening (SWE) and Sawol (FIN). Continue reading »
