Italian dark metallers GRAVEWORM will release their new studio album "Ascending Hate" on June 19th (EU) / July 7th (US). For the band it marks the return, three and a half years after "Fragments Of Death". GRAVEWORM are one of the leading extreme metal acts in Europe. In the 18 years of their history so far, the Italian dark metallers have not only achieved to deliver quality music constantly, they have released classics if the genre (just think back to 2003’s „Engraved In Black“). It’s exactly this very special mixture of symphonic black metal elements, gothic and thrash, that makes GRAVEWORM sound so unique. And even in their nineteenth year of history, the band doesn’t fail to surprise: even though GRAVEWORM are known for delivering quality sound - only few would have expected the band to return that energetic, strong and powerful.
‘Silence’ is an immense and supreme ‘sound-folly’ that celebrates the capriciousness of destiny, the fugacity of life and the eternal presence of darkness in light. An instinctive impetus made of pure emotions, calibrated by awareness and experience. This album represents our maturity as musicians and the highest and most sincere expression of myself as an artist and as a woman. These new compositions are extremely gloomy and sinister, but they give off an explosion of power, intense energies and deep sensations. ‘Silence’ will guide you into a carnival of imagination and reality, where doom and free will are playing their last chess game. I’m sure it will leave many people speechless. Silence!

he Finnish horror heavy metallers Domination Black are going to unleash their long-awaited third full-length studio album in February 2012. The album called "Dimension: Death" will see the daylight on 22nd February 2012 via Kanki Rekords.
Magnificent third album from this underrated Italian band. 'Inferno' is a smart mixture of doom, gothic and black metal styles, that particular hybrid some like to call "dark metal." Tuneful yet sinister stuff, a must-hear for fans of Rotting Christ, Paradise Lost and Moonspell.
