Como já se referiu previamente, Crystal Viper, provenientes de Katowice, Polónia, é a Banda que irá liderar o cartel da edição deste ano do festival, que promete ser um evento memorável de puro Heavy Metal, na capital do Baixo Alentejo!

Provenientes de Espanha, Madrid, vêm os HEID, colectivo que está a causar sensação, combinando uma sonoridade Black Metal com elementos do folclore castelhano e influências celtas, usando instrumentos tradicionais da região e cantando igualmente em espanhol, a banda acabou de lançar o trabalho "Voces De La Tierra Dormida", e prometem fazer furor nesta primeira visita que fazem a Portugal!



Directamente de Lisboa, teremos os Martelo Negro, quarteto practicante de um Black/Thrash Heavy Metal austero e rude, vincadamente "Old School", desde que lançaram o seu primeiro trabalho denominado "Sortilégio dos Mortos" em 2011, que a banda tem forjado e construído o seu nome por varios palcos do norte a sul do país, e tem vindo a afirmar-se como um dos valores seguros e a ter em conta no panorama "underground" nacional e estão prestes a editar novo trabalho e brevemente serão reveladas mais novidades e pormenores sobre o novo album!



The Unholy, provenientes de Coimbra, são uma das bandas mais promissoras do panorama nacional, liderados por Sara Steel, a banda practica um Heavy Metal com bastante carisma e atitude que vai beber nalguns clássicos chave dos 80s (Vicious Rumors, Chastain, Judas Priest, Liege Lord, Iron Maiden, Hellion, Ravage, Grim Reaper...), muito bem elaborado e imprimindo uma identidade muito própria, a banda viu recentemente ser reeditada a sua demo em formato Vinil pela editora alemã Underground Power Records, e tem recebido críticas muito positivas em vários países da Europa e a nível nacional, por este seu trabalho de apresentação!



DeadlyForce, colectivo practicante de Heavy Metal puro e duro, com um cunho bastante próprio e imprimindo um "feeling" épico nas suas composições, claramente "old school" com algumas influências de Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Dio, W.A.S.P., Angel Witch, Saxon.... a banda é composta por elementos do eixo Seixal/Corroios/Almada e está a preparar o lançamento do seu EP de estreia, cujo Artwork já foi divulgado, prometem-se novidades para breve!




O Pax Julia Metal Fest tem data marcada para a Casa da Cultura de Beja, a 15 Novembro 2014, um Sábado, para realizar e celebrar a sua quarta edição!

Futuramente serão divulgadas mais novidades, deste que foi o primeiro festival dedicado ao Heavy Metal na cidade, e mantêm-se como único no seu propósito, com um âmbito, imagem e impacto forte, com características próprias e interessantes, sendo um género de música que continua a fascinar novas gerações e a renovar a sua base de fans, já com várias décadas de história!

O evento, assim designado por ser o nome da cidade na altura do Império Romano, caracteriza-se por ser um festival em plena época Outonal, cujo objectivo é possibilitar que haja aqui um ponto de passagem ao Sul, para as Bandas tocarem, um respiradouro e artéria fundamental do panorama Heavy Metal nacional!

Com dimensões adaptadas ao meio em que se insere, no interior do Alentejo, em Portugal, um dos países periféricos da Europa, este evento de valor, criado em 2009, que se quer com nível e qualidade, teve a sua génese e início na Casa da Cultura, para servir a comunidade em que se insere, pretende ser um encontro relevante na nossa região e uma mostra, cerimónia e espectáculo anual, do que melhor se faz no âmbito e género de música que a idealização do festival pretende expor!

DEVILISH IMPRESSIONS - 'ADVENTVS' Cover art revealed!

NeKroNews

DEVILISH IMPRESSIONS
COUNTRY: POLAND
GENRE: MODERN EXTREME MUSIC



'ADVENTVS' COVER ART REVEALED!

[2014.04.19]


Scheduled for a May 8th release ‘Adventvs’ EP, a follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘Simulacra’ album (2012), will feature two brand new tracks that perfectly portray the Devilish Impressions present state and its recently re-defined sonic path as well as the group’s 2002 never-published-before demo ‘Eritis sicvt Devs’. Over 60 minutes of the band’s new and old music. ‘Adventvs’ will be available in exclusive digipack edition with a 20-pages booklet wrapped in amazing layout / artworks by Black Moon Design.

Track list:

ADVENTVS
1. Adventvs Regis - 10.08
2. Meteoron - 06.51
ERITIS SICVT DEVS
3. Moon – 19.50
4. Var – 14.24
5. Dies Irae – 11.39

Comments the band’s mastermind, Quazarre:
“You’ll definitely see a huge distance between the opening tracks of ‘Adventvs’ and those from the ‘Eritis sicvt Devs’ era, especially on a technical level. But hey, that’s the whole point as we’d like to leave you with a glimpse into what Devilish Impressions was doing in the years it was created and compare it to what we do presently. And although ‘Eritis…’ was in a way created to pay homage to all those acts that so strongly influenced our creation, it was also a brave reach out and search for ways to the band’s very individual expression. As for the new songs, not only we have redefined the ideas behind our sonic path but have also come up with a different approach toward the sound and production. We’ve introduced 7-strings guitars and reduced synthesizers to the absolute minimum. Moreover, in order not to spoil a natural groove of the drums, for the first time ever we've decided to use no triggers at all.”

Once again, the band has worked with different sound engineers and used several recording studios to produce the new songs, incl. the famous Hertz Studio (drums – Wieslawski Bros), Icaros Studio (guitars), Flumen Studio (additional synth / fx) and Sound Division Studio (vocals; guitars’ re-amping), where it was also mixed and mastered by Arkadiusz Malczewski (Behemoth, Decapitated, Hate etc.).

Also appearing on the record are Contemplatron - overtone chanting, dril bu (ritual Tibetan hand bell) and Chinese Chau gong as well as Wojciech ‘Flumen’ Kostrzewa (Asgaard) – additional synth / fx.

‘Eritis sicvt Devs’ originally recorded by Paweł Wołczyk at D.J. Wolkos 666 Studio, has been digitally re-mastered at the beginning of 2014.

In support to the ‘Adventvs’ premiere
Devilish Impressions will tour Poland in May. Tour dates as follow:



08.05 Olsztyn / Nowy Andergrant
09.05 Warszawa / Progresja
10.05 Bialystok / ACK Sepularium

DIABOLICAL BIOGRAPHY:

Ever since DIABOLICAL was formed in Sundsvall, Sweden, in 1996 the band has caused confusion among the narrow-minded, constantly progressing, refusing to do the expected. Already with their early efforts "Deserts of Desolation" (mini album, 2000) and "Synergy" (2001) DIABOLICAL stood out as something different from the death metal bands coming up at the time, representing something unwilling to be categorized easily. The reception from fans and media was very good, resulting in a lot of coverage in major metal press at the time.

Following the success of the second full-length album "A Thousand Deaths" (2002) the band toured Europe several times in 2002-03 with AMON AMARTH, VOMITORY and DEFLESHED among others, co-headlined Open Hell festival (2002) and Kaltenbach Open Air (2003) and played several other festivals as well. The albums were later re-released in South America, and both albums were released in the USA as well.

2004-2008 the band only did few live appearances mainly due to Widgren’s intense and increasing work schedule producing other bands at his Necromorbus Studio.

But in 2008, after several years of record label related problems, DIABOLICAL returned with full force and delivered a milestone in their discography; taking their innovative death metal a huge step further they plunged the listener into the darkest corners of the human mind, bringing restrained aggression and cravings for vengeance to life in "The Gallery of Bleeding Art". The album received brilliant reviews and was followed by two small but very successful headline tours though Europe.

In January 2011 "Ars Vitae" was released, containing 17 tracks from different parts of the band's career. The newest material was recorded at Necromorbus Studio in 2010, and was again produced by founding band-member Sverker Widgren. The band did several tours between 2010 and 2011 in Europe and Russia in support of "Ars Vitae".

In 2012 an announcement was made that a new album was in the making. Entitled "Neogenesis" it stands out as something truly unique. The album raises the bar for concept albums as it apart from being a music album also is a novel. Uniting every song with a chapter of the book the music, lyrics, storytelling and philiosphy of "Neogenesis" blends together to create a profound experience that will surely leave a deep impression on the listener. "Neogenesis" will be released on the 27th of September 2013.

DEVILISH IMPRESSIONS BIOGRAPHY

Despite having only two albums under their belt Devilish Impressions quickly managed to put their name out there. Critically acclaimed records and intense touring along with some of the biggest names onto the metal scene made them one of the most promising acts on the European map of extreme music. After a row of personal problems that eventually caused several line-up changes and temporary stage absence, the band strikes back with the brand new opus called “Simulacra” and is
now ready to take the scene by storm again.

Considered as one of Poland’s leading and most innovative modern black / death metal acts Devilish Impressions officially started in 2000 as a three-piece, with founding singer / guitarist Quazarre remaining the only member of the original line-up. Marking their presence with the 45-minutes-long “Eritis sicut Deus; Verbum Diaboli Manet in Aeternum; Vox Vespertilio Act I – Moon Var Dies Irae”, self-released in 2002, the band began the process of shaping up its own spirit and self-consciousness, the long-time-hard work on what would later evolve into the epic, extreme music phenomenon as the band is being defined nowadays...

2005 saw them recording “Plurima Mortis Imago”, released in September 2006 on the London-based Conquer Records. The video for the song “SataniChaoSymphony” was shot in London and two months later Devilish Impressions hits the road along with AETERNUS as part of the European “Ageless Void Tour”. In April 2007 they land a direct support slot on MARDUK’s “Swords In The East” Eastern European run. After the successful tours, in May 2007 the group enters Studio X for the 3-monthslong recording session of their second full-length album “Diabolicanos – Act III: Armageddon”. While the record was being mastered by Andy Classen at Stage One Studio,

Devilish Impressions appears at Red Alert Festival in the Crimea, accompanying such acts as SUFFOCATION and VADER. Autumn 2007 sees Devilish Impressions shooting the video for the song “Har-Magedon”, set to promote the „Diabolicanos…” album. At the end of the year, the band sets off for the “Verbum Diaboli Tour”, their first ever headlining run across the Eastern European countries.
The “Diabolicanos...” album, released in January 2008 again on Conquer Records, was widely praised in the international metal press and gave Devilish Impressions the opportunity to open for BEHEMOTH and SUICIDE SILENCE on “The Apostasy European Tour”, and then embark with DISMEMBER for the “UK, Ireland and Northern Ireland Tour”. Meanwhile the group was invited for selected shows of WACKEN ROAD SHOW 2008 yet, due to abovementioned tours having been booked earlier, they eventually managed to join the WRS bill, OVERKILL, TRISTANIA, SAMAEL and ENSLAVED, for a show in Kiev only.

In May 2008 the album comes out in Poland licensed to Empire Records. The same month sees Devilish Impressions joining forces with their home country-mates HATE for their first time ever Polish invasion named “Rebel Angels Tour” being forced to drop off from the tour’s last date, as they had earlier been booked for the special show with SATYRICON in Ukraine.
The summer of 2008 included the band's appearance at Pro Rock Festival while coheadlining with RAGE and at Metal Heads Mission Festival with bands like MOONSPELL, GORGOROTH and SAMAEL to name but a few.

After finishing over a half-year-long touring cycle in support to the “Diabolicanos…” album, Devilish Impressions decide to continue their crusade, despite facing many problems on both, professional and personal levels, leading to further shifts in their line-up and temporary stage absence.

In the middle of 2009, Quazarre began to compose on what would later become the “Diabolicanos...” successor, introducing even more of a thrash and heavy metal influences in the song-writing process, and thus injecting a new dimension of brutality and catchiness in Devilish Impressions’ music. Increasing the use of clean vocals and further development of a melodic side of the new songs, made their sound even more of an epic character, sound that eventually turn into something the band themselves would describe as ‘MUSIC for the EXTREME experiMENTAL generation ONLY’.

In the second half of 2010 Devilish Impressions enters few recording studios, incl. Studio X and Hertz Studio in order to produce their very best opus up-to-date named “Simulacra”. The long-lasting recording session backed up by session synth appearances of Flumen (ASGAARD) and Lestath (METransmissionAL), as well as special guests incl. Orion (BEHEMOTH, VESANIA), Jacek Grecki (LOST SOUL) and Roman (LECTER), resulted in extremely sharp and massive sound of the album, that along with the new songs’ outstanding craftsmanship, breath-taking artworks and lyrical concept based on works of the world’s famous poets makes the “Simulacra” record one of the 2012 must-have metal offers.

Born in battle over lands of frost and Thunder this band was set to put a mark in Extreme Metal!

THUNDERWAR - The Birth of Thunder - EP - 2014 - [Self Released]
Genre: Death Metal

"(...)Chariots of thunder from the heavens came
Annihilating cities, setting the earth aflame
Apocalyptic Battles of the ancient ones
The spheres of fire, like a thousand suns(...)
" Vimana (The Chariots in Heaven) - The Birth of Thunder

Cold as ice, angry as a horde of Viking warriors, determined like an army fighting for freedom of their homeland, this is a way to define Thunderwar Polish epic death metal band! A damn promising band born in 2013 when a quartet of young metal maniacs combined forces in order not only to pay tribute to their Metal heroes such as Bathory, Unleashed, Dissection, Amon Amarth, but yet to create a Polish epic death metal force that shall prove once again that Poland has something more to say to the Metal world! This attitude and quality has allowed them already to take part of several shows, yet supporting colossus like Amon Amarth, Obituary, etc! A band not to be missed by any fans of bands such as
Obituary, Asphyx, Bathory, Dissection, Unleashed among others!

The Birth of Thunder is a proof of the band quality and inspiration. Thunderwar present themselves at best on their debut EP, a refreshed, strong and epic identity sure reveals that this band has allot within themselves to grow up with. If that isn't enough the band decided to work with the best in the field to allow them to cause the strongest impact with their debut EP, in fact let me say that they couldn't pick much better people to work on with, just see, this Ep was mixed and produced by
the famous Wieslawscy Bros from Hertz Studio (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated), granting them a seal of extreme metal quality. The bands logo was designed by the master Christophe Szpajdel (Emperor, Moonspell, Desaster)... and if all that wasn't enough, the cover art for The Birth of Thunder EP  was done by Mario Lopez (Sabbat, Evil Invaders). Still, all could be meaningless if these guys weren't so damn good on what they do. Birth of Thunder is a cold, epic and triumphant piece of metal making you eager for the future band creations!
This mighty Polish quartet is formed by
Kamil 'Madness' Mandes who contributed not only with some great bass work, but yet and more impressively unleashed through all the album some outstanding slashed vocals in the vein of those performed by
John Tardy (Obituary) or Martin Van Drunen (Asphyx). Witold Ustapiuk guitar leads are simply outstanding and shall make you captive since first listening, combined with Maciej 'Olszak' Olszewski guitar work, both create some solid frozen melodies as well as brutal epic death metal battle-rhythms. Vit Argasiński drum dynamism and tightness has sure given this band the right dose of aggression and power!

The EP works pretty much as a whole, where fast, epic and melodic death metal tracks such as Vimana, Shadows of Lindisfarne combine perfectly with tracks such as the acoustic instrumental The Birth of Thunder, a frozen melodious track that shall echo within your ears and haunt you with ancient Viking tales. The EP ends with Eagle of Glory that is the most direct thrashed death metal track on The Birth of Thunder release.

In all aspects The Birth of Thunder EP from the fresh blooded Thunderwar sure has captured extreme metal adepts attention, proving that this band sure knows what they are doing, creating memorable melodies blended in perfection with aggressive and well structured death metal brutality. The band has set a mark and better to keep their name in memory because their gonna cause impact in the Metal World! Bands like Thunderwar prove that Metal is here for all eternity! Reinventing the steel that will last for a Millenniums to come! This is the birth of the Thunder warriors that shall battle in every Metal War!

DEMONICAL BIOGRAPHY:

Demonical was spawned in March 2006 - by former Centinex members Johan Jansson (guitars & vocals), Martin Schulman (bass) and Ronnie Bergerståhl (drums) - with a mission to return to the roots of death metal and deliver a sheer dose of darkness and brutality.

The first audio assault - a four track promo attack entitled "Bloodspell Divine" - was recorded at Necromorbus Studios during July the same year. In November 2006 Demonical added vocalist Ludvig Engellau to the line-up - 'cause Johan wanted to fully concentrate on the six-string axe - and signed a worldwide multi-album deal with German Cyclone Empire.

The bands first full-length album, "Servants Of The Unlight", was recorded at both Black Lounge and Necromorbus Studios during January and February 2007 and released in April the same year. In November 2007 Temple of Darkness released a limited Demonical/Absu 7”EP featuring one track from the “Bloodspell Divine” promo.
In December 2007 the band parted ways with vocalist Ludvig Engellau due to musical and personal reasons. Demonical continued for a few months with various session vocalists until late March 2008 when Sverker “Widda” Widgren came on board as the new fulltime frontman.

The bands second full-length album, “Hellsworn”, was recorded at Necromorbus Studios between December 2008 and February 2009 and released by Cyclone Empire in May 2009. A split 7”EP called ‘Imperial Anthems Vol.1’ with Paganizer was released by Cyclone Empire in early 2010. This limited vinyl featured an exclusive Demonical track recorded at the “Hellsworn” session.

In September 2010 Demonical once again entered Necromorbus Studios in order to record “Death Infernal”, their anticipated third full-length album. The album was recorded throughout the fall and released in Europe by Cyclone Empire (April 2011) and in north-America by Metal Blade (July 2011) as a limited digi-CD, regular CD and limited LP.

The album was praised by fans and media and climbed high at reader-polls in several magazines. During the fall 2011 drummer Ronnie Bergerståhl decided to leave the band due to scheduling conflicts and he was quickly replaced by Fredrik Widigs.

After “Death Infernal” was released the band decided to add a second guitarist for live situations. A few session members were used at several tours until Daniel Gustavsson joined as a full-time member during the summer 2012.

The first half of 2013 was spent at both Necromorbus and Wing Studios in Stockholm with the recordings of “Darkness Unbound”. After the recording a line-up change took place with Johan Haglund replacing Johan Jansson and Ämir Batar replacing Fredrik Widigs.

“Darkness Unbound” was released on September 20th 2013 and supported by a world tour.

Sverker Widgren - vocals
