Portuguese progressive metallers BLAME ZEUS have unveiled their new music video “No” in support of their third full length “SEETHE” due out November 8, 2019 via Rockshots Records.

With influences that range from blues to metal, BLAME ZEUS can be described as an intense and heavy rock, but also with intimate and nostalgic ballads. Their line up features Sandra Oliveira, Tiago Lascasas, Paulo Silva, Celso Oliveira, and Ricardo Silveira.   

Since forming in 2010, the band’s two previous releases “Identity’ (2014) (Raising Legends Records) and “Theory of Perception” (2017) have garnered much praise in their home country along with securing opening slots with bands Lacuna CoilMoonspellCradle of FilthCellar Darling, R.A.M.P. among many others established acts. In 2018, they were invited to perform at Vagos Metal Fest, one of Portugal’s biggest heavy festivals. 

The band adds:

“Our new upcoming album will still possess BZ’s genome, but it will bring some fresh features you’ve never seen in our work. It will be heavier, darker, more progressive, and it will make the fans submerge in a turmoil of strong feelings. Fans will certainly feel our same old vibe in the songs, but recognize it has been upgraded, with a more modern sound. We worked freely, with no strings attached, using new elements, making everything sound rhythmically, harmonically and melodically intertwined.  We have certainly not made things easier to ourselves, and had to evolve technically to be able to play and sing these new songs.”

and vocalist Sandra Oliveira also adds:

“‘SEETHE’ could very well be considered a conceptual album because the main theme of the songs is unexpressed anger, silent pain transformed into poetry. Its contradictory nature is the liberation of the soul, it’s letting go of that lump on your throat when you have something to say. Each song speaks of a particular situation where the silence and the numbness become a vehicle for action and freedom or even utmost despair.”“SEETHE” is available for pre-order here.

L-R – Matteo Bellezza (guitars), Fabio Migliori (drums), Andrea Pistone (bass), Francesco Cremisini (vocals/guitars)

Italian thrashers ENEMYNSIDE have released their new music video ‘Frozen Prison Cell’, the first single off their forthcoming album “Chaos Machine” due out October 25th via Rockshots Records.

“This track is about Soviet gulags, something I’ve been fascinated by reading books about labour camps in the Soviet Union. Francesco wrote the music and chose this lyrics, which fits perfectly with the atmosphere of the song. In the video you can see a prisoner trying to escape from the labor camp, but the prison he gets himself into is the boundless frozen land of Siberia.” says guitarist Matteo Bellezza.

The band’s anticipated 2019 full length album “Chaos Machine” features ten aggressive and relentless thrash tracks focusing on the sentiment of being trapped (both physically and metaphorically) by the world’s social injustices, control systems such as religious institutions and political authorities, totalitarianism and dictatorships.

BIO:

Arising from the thriving music scene of Stockholm, Sweden, Silent Call trace their lineage to the year 1990, when founding members Daniel Ekholm and Patrik Törnblom met through a common friend. Realizing their shared passion and strong melodic influence, they formed what became the chief driving force and songwriting effort behind Silent Call’s sound, which can be compared to many of the leading bands in today’s’ genre.

In 2006, Silent Call was joined by progressive metal drummer powerhouse Mikael Kvist (Elsesphere, Fate), and the lineup was soon expanded with the acquisition of bassist Tobbe Moen (Red Fun, OZ, Creozoth). The singer’s slot was finally filled in September of 2006 with the addition of ex-Seventh Wonder and Elsesphere vocalist Andi Kravljaca. After the completion of the lineup, things happened very quickly for Silent Call. The band’s debut 4-track demo “Divided,” released in January of 2007, showcased the band’s new direction and lineup and was promptly picked up by UK label Escape Music.

Silent Call’s debut album, “Creations From A Chosen Path”, was released during August 2008, featuring 13 tracks of powerful melodic metal, with guest appearances by the likes of Göran Edman (Yngwie MalmsteenBrazen Abbot) on vocals and Daniel Flores (Mind’s Eye, Murder of My Sweet) on drums. The album was mixed and mastered at JM Studios by famed studio man Martin Kronlund (Hammerfall). Received extremely well by the press, “Creations From A Chosen Path” has been hailed as one of the best metal albums of 2008 by several European magazines.

During the winter of 2009, Silent Call began recording their follow-up album, “Greed”. Once again mixed and mastered by Martin Kronlund, and this time featuring artwork by Progart genius Mattias Noren, the 11 tracks on “Greed” explore heavier and more complex musical ground, showcasing Silent Call at their thus far most progressive, and most aggressive release.

Silent Call had to pull off something special if they were to continue on the lines of surpassing their debut and “Greed” had done just that. Their follow-up 2014 release “Truth’s Redemption” was a fine example of what fantastic progressive metal should actually sound like! With songs like “Every Day”, “All That Might Be” and “When the Angels Call Your Name”, Silent Call effortlessly produced top class music with all the hallmarks of being overnight sensations. Crisp guitar work, a plethora of keyboards and great lead vocals were all to be found on the album.

In late 2014, new vocalist Göran Nyström (ex Twinspirits) joined the band. Prior to that Silent Call consisted of Göran Nyström on vocals, Daniel Ekholm on guitars, Patrik Törnblom on keyboards, Tobbe Moen on bass and Mikael Kvist on drums. The band started writing songs for a new album in 2015 and also went on a European tour together with Sweden’s Tad Morose.

“Windows”, the newest album from Silent Call, will be released in the fall of 2019. Production on Silent Call’s fourth album, “Windows” was completed in late 2016 and was mixed and mastered by Rich Hinks (Annihilator).  “Windows” will be the last album of their career and is due out on October 11, 2019 via Rockshots Records.
