Trieste, Italy black metal band Absentia Lunae will be releasing their new album "Vorwarts" on November 3rd. The album will be released through Aeternitas Tenebrarum Musicae and the band has issued a video teaser including moments from every tune. The band has issued the following statement:
"Absentia Lunae have been always upfront in crushing the stagnant chaos of black metal to forge a new shape of music that capturing the essence of the most arrogant, elitist martial attitude of the darkest side can become a new manner to influence listener energy.
We need a new border to be crushed, we need the energy to raise the freedom of the inner self, disturbed by the frequencies of what we wrongfully call “modernity”.
“Vorwarts” means forward, never look back, react to the stagnant chaos of the thousand dead voices trying to confuse the inner self.
Absentia Lunae new mission starts where the father of avantgarde black metal failed, without wasting an inch of determination to the artistic goal due to self-indulgence, but looking to the point and to the final target, far beyond the shadow of any minimalist substance.
Some may recall echoes of the Mayhem second era provoking attitude, but there all is forged into the statue that Vorwarts represent, like a picture of fatalism, like a strong wind devouring the sand dunes of transience. A new kin will raise but will soon take the distance from the human being, transcending the mundane. The most revolutionary artistic movement of past century, the Futurism, raised from Italy becomes today a source of inspiration and reaction to the lack of arrogance and pretension of today’s scene."
Italian technical death metal band Resumed will release their debut album entitled "Alienations" on December 1st. The band has signed with Bakerteam Records for this release. Resumed has issued the following statement:
"Founded in 2007 with the name Holy Terror, Resumed produced their first demo under the new moniker in 2009, which eventually led them to the completion of the band’s debut album Alienations. The following year saw Resumed focusing on their live activity and, in the meantime, signed a deal with Bakerteam Records for the release of the album.
Alienations is a massive piece of old-school technical death metal, enriched with many musical contaminations coming from jazz, fusion, funk and Latin music, progressive atmospheres and virtuoso playing. A set of eight tracks, each song deals with a particular distortion of the human psyche. Alienations was produced by the band’s drummer Filippo Tirabassi at FG Music Studio and in Resumed’s own studio in Sulmona, Italy. The album will be available starting from December 1st on Bakerteam Records."
