"Psychopathology" will be the first album in RAGNAROK's history that doesn't feature founder Jontho on drums. Having taken over the role of frontman, his place behind the drum kit is taken by DAUDEN drummer Malignant, who joined the band in 2014. The follow-up to 2012's "Malediction" was recorded in Endarker Studio and produced by Marduk's bassist, Devo. The cover artwork was made by Marcelo Vasco (Slayer, Machine Head, Dimmu Borgir).
Founder and frontman Jontho had this to say about fans can expect from the album: "Your wait will finally come to an end in 2016 when we release "Psychopathology", our eighth full-length album. I can say with absolute certainty that this album will be the best in RAGNAROK's career to date. It is the result of dedication, hard work, and the musical skills of our lineup, and is the next stage in the band's development, both musically and lyrically. "Psychopathology" is about to unleash total chaos upon you as it invites you to dive deeper into the dark recesses of the human mind".

Ukrainian death metal legends Fleshgore release a brand new bone-crushing album this year. They're regarded as one of the leading bands in the Ukrainian death metal scene and it's easy to see why - they're extremely competent, pushing the envelope by mixing influences of death metal bands that are brutal and technical while keeping their original brute sound intact, and delve into innovative bits every now and then. Their music can be compared to bands like Dying Fetus, Suffocation, Wormed and Virulency - sick, intricate and replete with endless variations. It's not often to come across such a power-packed album that manages to do all this much and more. Backed with a robust production, Fleshgore are not leaving little to the imagination - you'll feel their forceful delivery. Multiple listens are in order to fully decipher this monstrous yet intelligent album.
Pennsylvania-based black metal act Chaos Moon will release an extended digipak CD version of the latest EP "Amissum" on March 18th through Hellthrasher Productions.
Created and solely instrumentally performed by A. Poole (of Krieg, Martröð, Esoterica, Skáphe, Lithotome) with a little vocal contribution from E. Baker (Manetheren), this new EP captures the band's trademark, densely-layered black metal sound in its most ethereal form. Written and recorded between 2012-2016, Amissum stands as a collection of tracks that were not intended to be included on any full-length album. Compared to the original version, self-released digitally in September 2015, the CD edition will contain two previously unpublished bonus tracks - one being from the same session as the rest (Resurrection III), the other brand new (Amissum). The cover photo was taken by H.V Lyngdal (Wormlust).

'Fearless Undead Machines' is one of the landmark albums in the thrash/death metal style. While the first two Deceased albums were great, this one just took the band to another level altogether. The surreal zombie concept was phenomenally well done and executed; each of the songs reek of that dread and pensive heart-throbbing atmosphere. The solos continue to be incredibly memorable and inspiring, the vocals shudder with that rare horror-themed conviction, the drumming remains brisk and vibrant throughout, while the guitarists paint a thrilling image of the post-apocalyptic zombie-infested world with some of the most sublime riffs any metalhead will ever hear. Few albums have come close to the ambitious storytelling skills and majesty of this one. Even fewer sound as fresh and exciting a couple of decades later. This is a veritable classic.
The original artwork and sound have been retained on this official reissue authorized by King Fowley, and contains special liner notes and pictures that weren't present in the first pressing. Experience an unforgettable classic in its original glory all over again.
