Psychedelic extreme metal marauders GIGAN recently completed the recording of their upcoming new studio offering. Titled Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super-Science, the bands third full-length, and second to be released through forward-thinking label imprint, Willowtip Records, was recorded with esteemed sound sage Sanford Parker (Minsk, Buried At Sea, Yakuza) at Earth Analog Studios in Chicago. A kaleidoscopic sound voyage that is at once musically complex and meticulously concise, Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super-Science dishes up eight hymns of cranium-twisting, hallucinatory brutality.
Elaborates GIGAN mastermind, Eric Hersemann, Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super Science is the best musical representation of GIGAN so far, as it captures the essential elements of the first three releases while still stretching the existing boundaries of the GIGAN Universe! I had more time to work on this album and the result is a detailed and mesmerizing assault of Psychedelic Extreme Metal! The production also came out spectacularly, with natural sounds and tones complemented by an un-earthly ambience and enigmatic vibe..."

The brainchild of left-handed lead guitarist and founding member Eric Hersemann, GIGAN has been challenging the mortal laws of extreme music and creativity since early 2006. Forged around the simple notion that the imagination should be arts only limit, GIGANs style of creative delivery has simultaneously invoked reactions of amazement, disbelief, shock, awe and ultimately, respect.
Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery And Super Science will be released in North America via Willowtip Records October 15, 2013.
Burn After Me just finished the shootings for their new Video, directed by Davide Cilloni of Eklipse Design. The song will be their first single from their upcoming EP! Stay tuned for more news on this forthcoming Ep.
Brazilian symphonic black metallers FROST DESPAIR are finishing the recordings of their debut album, "Surreal", the follow up to 2011's "The God Delusion" EP. The band posted samples of three songs on their website - www.frostdespair.com - and made comments about the tracks:
"The Sixth Bell" - "A track that brings up the album's atmosphere, which is slowly being set, with growing strength and musical aggressiveness"
"Surreal" - "It summarizes the atmosphere we looked for. Orchestrations were explored in the album as a whole, but we have some tracks with heavy moments without keyboards"
"Creation" - "Creationism being satirized with movement and aggressiveness. The longest and most epic track of 'Surreal'"
The album is being recorded in Hurricane Studios and has artwork created by Marcelo Vasco (Dark Funeral, Dimmu Borgir, Borknagar). A release date will be announced soon.

You can stream the album preview below.
The whole band together stated :''We are so proud of being part of the WormHole Death roster! Those guys are extremely professional and they really trust in our work and in our potential; we're sure it'll be a great collaboration, wich starts with ''Different Ways Of Feeling Pain''.''
A&R "Worm" stated: "Yes, it's true! I was so excited when Luigi from DOAG contacted me in search of a digital release. It is somehow something new for Wormholedeath to release an album via digital download only since I've always seen this idea like a great idea! It is not better or worse than a "normal" cd release ... It's just different. I see a different potential in a digital release since everything is going to be faster. Of course many bands asked us to get this kind of deal but we were waiting for the right album to make this new idea like real. In fact Death Of All Gods are signed to our label under all effects, like all the other bands, they just decided that they didn't care about having the hard copy cd on the market and as long as they were the right band to work with we said yes. Preview their song and you will understand why!"

Armaroth is a brutal music machine that dares to deliver an experience beyond the horizons of comfort. The gears started turning in 2008, launching chaos and destruction of the mind, which were incarnated in 2013 as the False Vision EP. The EP's first listeners have reported severe damage to their perception of the world and of themselves. The machine is honoured and eager to continue its work. So far it has dominated most of its homeland stages, and that is only the beginning. Listen and test your truth. Armaroth will see you soon!
