"Swedish black metal quartet STILLA has finally recorded its debut album "Till Stilla Falla", to be released by Nordvis on 03/03/2012. The record is obviously inspired by the bronze era of eerie svart metall and ominous travellers through the cold netherworlds of the Northern hinterland which fascinated through atmosphere and intensity instead of rock'n'roll cabaret. STILLA which includes individuals like Bergraven's Pär (guitars), A from Armagedda (vocals), A. Vidhall from Havok (bass) and Johan from De Arma (drums) did indeed succed to craft an album with passion and remarkable feeling for eerie moods."
Blast Head Records announced their signing of Ancient Roman death metal band ADE for the spring release of their sophomore album entitled Spartacus, which features extreme metal drummer George Kollias and will be the band's follow up to their 2009 debut Prooemivm Sangvine.
True masters of music, ADE, formed in 2007, with the purpose of blending death metal with the traditional instruments of ancient Rome and Greece.
When I first listened to Spartacus I was instantly intrigued by the amazing song structures, production and most importantly the musicianship of ADE! From start to finish Spartacus grips you with musical hooks and their use of traditional Roman instruments allows you hear something new with every listen. The album is very powerful, memorable and in all honesty is a major contender for album of the year! I am beyond proud to have ADE on Blast Head Records to showcase their talents to the world!" comments Paul Shaw, owner of Blast Head Records.

'Spartacus' is a masterpiece that simple! I feel blessed and honored recording the drums for this album. ADE can play great and write some of the best songs in the genre; the combination of writing, feel and musicianship is in this album outstanding; they worked very hard on each song and that shows very well. 'Spartacus' has some really unique elements and ideas that ADE combines with the best and fresh- way possible...this is why I cant wait to see peoples reaction with this AMAZING album!!! comments drummer George Kollias.

THE MOTH GATHERER's music is hard to label, due to band's non-one-dimensional approach towards the songs they create; the Experimental/Progressive etiquette seems almost too laconic to fully do justice to the spirit of the compositions. The debut offers up long and complex tracks, but still surprisingly simple and compelling. Abundance of tempo changes and variations that surround the album bask in emotionally charged, progressive yet utterly melodic slower-sections, addictive enough to stimulate the imagination.
"We just want our music to be an emotional explosion" - comments Alex, co-founder. "A lot of the songs is about death, missing people you loved who have passed away and losing hope in mankind. We want the music to make you feel like you can move mountains with it. I wish f or that when people hear our music, they start to dream away."
THE MOTH GATHERER is recommended for fans of Neurosis, Breach and Cult of Luna.
THE UPHEAVAL has recently inked a deal with the Canadian underground label Mulligore Production. The band's full-length ''Failure of Humanity'' will be issued on regular Jewel Case CD during the spring.
