ZT INTERROGATION: OBLITERATING THE SELF WITH REGURGITATE LIFE

The best death metal bands mature without losing the intensity that makes the genre so special, and with their second full-length album Obliteration Of The Self, released by Truthseeker Music back in March,  that’s exactly what Regurgitate Life have done. It’s been five years since their last release, The Human Complex, but guitarist/vocalist/bassist Sammy Urwin [of Employed to Serve and Oblivionized, among many others] hasn’t been idle, to say the least.  Now a duo (with drummer Daryl Best) rather than a solo project, Regurgitate Life has always been simmering at the back of Sammy’s mind, as he explained to Will...

THROANE REVEAL NEW TRACK

We’ve teamed up with Debemur Morti to bring you a premiere from Throane. The second full-length from Throane is the most fully realised vision of enigmatic photographer/illustrator/designer Dehn Sora (Blut Aus Nord, Ulver, Deathspell Omega).

Like Sora’s visual art, his music possesses a hypnotic, almost hyperreal singularity: ultra-modern meditations rendering the esoteric as familiar and the everyday as phantasmagoria. This...

PORTUGAL’S SINISTRO UNVEIL NEW VIDEO AHEAD OF THEIR FORTHCOMING NEW ALBUM

It didn’t take much persuading for us to team up with our chums at Season Of Mist to premiere Sinistro‘s video for their new track ‘Petalas’, especially as it’s taken from their forthcoming new album (which isn’t out until January 2018, so it’s a real ‘advance’ listen you’re getting here!). Directed by Inês Achando, the band comment that depicts: “An inner voyage in which existentialism is perpetuated, the escape, the mismatch. A plunge in our ruins to be reborn through a purge.” Enjoy! We mentioned a new album, and on January 5th, 2018 Sinistro will present the...

ICELAND’S AUÐN COME OUT FROM THE SHADOWS TO SHARE NEW MUSIC VIA ZTMAG.COM

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Season Of Mist because we thought you might enjoy an advance listen to something new from Iceland’s Auðn. Taken from their forthcoming album Farvegir Fyrndar, the track we’re sharing is ‘Skuggar’ (trans: ‘Shadows’). “We are proud to present the second track taken from our forthcoming album, Farvegir Fyrndar. ‘Skuggar’ was hard to write although the song appears to be relatively simple. There was tension when we created the track, which adds another new element to our sound. ‘Skuggar’ turned out to be melodic, bleak, and dark which...
