     THE GREAT DISCORD Launch Second Video Teaser for New Album Duende
Debut Album Out This June on Metal Blade Records
Sweden has been a fertile ground for metal of all varieties for multiple decades, and there appears to be no sign that this will change anytime soon. The variety and quality of bands is staggering, and Metal Blade Records is prepared to help add THE GREAT DISCORD to the list of one of Sweden's finest new groups. The band's cornerstone is with the enigmatic vocals of Fia Kempe. Her tone and delivery is immensely emotive and is augmented by a band whose sound is impossible to describe. It's technical, heavy, and yet not so much to overwhelm those not anointed in metal. What's important is that The Great Discord offers a truly unique twist on both metal, and what is to be expected from a female-fronted band.
FORGOTTEN TOMB, Italy's finest purveyors of Black/Doom Metal, will embark on an headlining European tour in late October/early November 2015, supporting their latest record "Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love", released by Agonia Records in April 2015. The band will perform a brand-new set of songs, including material from all their discography that hasn't been played in a while (or never before). 
Hailing from France, NOCTURNAL DEPRESSION will team up as support for the whole tour, promoting their new album "Spleen Black Metal" ( Avantgarde Music). 
EVEMASTER: Finnish Dark Metallers inked a deal with Italian Label THE GOATMANCER
After releasing the highly acclaimed demo "In Thine Majesty" early 1997, the debut album "Lacrimae Mundi" in 1998 and the second album "Wither" in 2003 it was time for a new album which was entitled “III”. It was released in Scandinavia in June 2010. The album features more mature song writing which had evolved melodically and added heavier parts in the music. The album has received rave reviews especially in Finland. The album features Dan Swanö on vocals on 2 songs (he also mixed and mastered the album) and Markus Vanhala (Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum) doing 2 guitar solos.
After the demise of Supernova Records the band felt the album didn't get the deserved recognition they decided to work with up and coming Italian label THE GOATMANCER with the re-release of the album in 2015. This re-release is to boost the band for their next release which should be out in 2016.

The monster line up for Obscene Extreme America keeps growing with the following bands announced to this year's festival in Montreal, QC from August 20-23.
Announced this week are:
   These raw mince-grinding maniacs will give you a lesson in renovation through fucking noisy & dirty chugging powerviolence fueled with plenty of gurgling low end, played on a circular jigsaws and powered by an outside diesel generators. Grab your tool box, put on your tool belts & be part of the grinding cult of power tools & home renovation.
   This blazing crust trio will blow your fucking face off with some of the most aggressive d-beat Canada has to offer. Drawing a heavy influence from DOOM & the UK Hardcore scene of that time, NAPALM RAID deliver some of the most energetic gigs filled with tortured vocals, heavy riffs & raging solos in short sharp shocks that any punk can appreciate. Don't miss this!!!
   The twisted & deviant noise/powerviolence machine HOMOLKA is here to terrorize your childhood dreams. Depraved as it sounds, the band name is based on a famous canadian serial killer. Coming from Toronto, this newcomer band will rape, torture & murder your eardrums while burying them under punishing grindcore madness.

   A putrid blast of air means that a nightmare burried a long time ago is coming near, black plague that has been recalled to life in the swamp of eternally decaying guts. Yes, merciless, heavyweight machine called Broken Hope from Illinois is rushing to grind your brains. Hibernated for a long time they are back with a new record Omen of Disease, organic brutal death metal mixed with a fair portion of sickness that is even more destroying than on their great album Loathing or extremely raw debut Swamped in Gore from 1991. And these are the albums that have become unquestionably the classics of brutal death metal genre.
   So be looking forward to this mutated monster to smash not only your ear canals and to fucking kick your ass but also to open a new dimension of fear and perversity in your mind as a bonus. Do not forget all your hopes will be drowned in the mud of Montreal at OEF AMERICA 2015!!!
   Thick and nasty goregrind extravanganza is awaiting you! G.O.D. play grindgore thorougly entrenched in the old school way. Capitalism, colonialism, white supremacy and patriarchy are vomited upon via a three way vocal attack while a fury of face-ripping riffs and genuine blastbeat obliteration ferocely destroy your skulls. Gore forever!!!
   What better band describes more Obscene Extreme America than these fuckers?! Bringing their blend of catchy & weird-as-hell grindcore to Canada, the trio of TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION will leave no one indifferent. 
   You know what to expect: Unorthodox song structures, killer riffs, multi-vocals attack , pounding drums & craziness a go-go! Get ready to be part of the annihilation of Montreal!!!
   Don't get fooled by the name, RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER are neither the stuff of fairy tales nor in fact a grindcore project, but a band focused on the current thrash revival mixing aggressive vocals, sick ass punked-up riffs with an old-school death metal feel.  
   These thrash maniacs better pay tribute to Canada by playing songs from their first live album, Raped by Bears! One sure thing, Living for death, destroying the rest is what defines this evil crossover assault and you better get your ass there to witness this madness
   Fuck yes!!! Did you really think Obscene Extreme was coming all over the way from Czech Republic to Montreal without bringing at least one of their motherland grind heroes?! You guys better pay tribute to the band by getting demented in the pit, wearing your crazy costume & stagediving like there’s no tomorrow. Hell, bring a fucking beach ball. Let show those Europeans bastards how insane we can get over here.
