UK THRASHERS FROM EDEN TO EXILE TALK ABOUT THEIR MODERN DISDAIN

The UK’s From Eden To Exile might be familiar to some already, not least because they have included a blistering track on our latest covermount CD and played Bloodstock back in 2015. We also discovered when we spoke to them about their latest release Modern Disdain that they’re a refreshingly thoughtful bunch too. “From Eden To Exile began in 2012 after the break-up of Apparitions Of The End, a thrash band from Banbury. This band had the privilege of touring the UK extensively and even supporting the mighty Napalm Death, While She Sleeps, TRC and many more,” say the Midlanders about their formation. “After our...

Formicarius unveil new video from Black Mass Ritual album

ZT have teamed up with Schwarzdorn Production to lift the veil on the new video from rising UK black metal band Formicarius. May The Rats Eat Your Eyes deals with a Lovecraftian descent into madness and is taken from the forthcoming Black Mass Ritual album which is released on 21 July. In 2016 Formicarius really announced themselves to the world. They stepped out from the underground pack, planted their standard with a wicked flourish and proclaimed, loud and clear, their grand ambitions, their intent to conquer. The ‘Lake Of The Dead’ single was their war cry and it lead to the band’s inclusion on Sony/Music For Nations’...

ZT PREMIERE: Dråp – Ner på knä

ZT join forced with Xtreem Music for a bludgeoning video premiere from Dråp entitled Ner på knä taken from the album Roten Till Allt Ont (“The Roots of all Evil”) DRÅP: the Swedish word for homicide. This unstoppable crust-punk/ death metal quartet from Sundsvall, Sweden was formed in January 2013 by vocalist Joachim Lyngfelt.

Mixed and mastered by John Henriksson in Blast Beat Studio, Sundsvall, the recording...

ZT Exclusive: Abhorrent Decimation premiere new video The Scythe In The Dark

ZT have teamed up with Prosthetic Records to bring you an exclusive look at the brand new video from Abhorrent Decimation. The band state that “We’ve been looking forward to putting this single out, it’s one of the more “straight-up” heavy tracks from ‘The Pardoner’. We don’t have that many tracks like this on the album, so I think it will stand out to a lot of people that hear it. It’s short, sharp and to the point and shows off some of the more modern aspects of ‘The Pardoner’. The video was shot and directed by David Archer, our Bassist and linchpin. Archer also...

EWIGKEIT SHARE THEIR LYRIC VIDEO TO NEW TRACK ‘DEATH IS THE PORTAL’

We’re quite partial to a bit of Ewigkeit here at ZT HQ – and it’s been a long while since we heard any new material from James Fogarty’s solo-project. So when we heard that he had a new album on the way it made complete sense to arrange an interview for the magazine, the results of which will be inked on paper for issue 080 and on the racks from 17 August 2017. In the meantime, there’s a lyric video for the [dare we say it, catchy] track ‘Death Is The Portal’ circulating in cyberspace that we’re more than happy to draw your attention to. It’s also great to see that the artist has been...
