Watain have released their first video EVER. Here’s the video for “Outlaw”:
Sorry, I couldnt resist… BRING ON THE TRUMPETS!
This week has managed to get away from me a bit… I was meant to post this the other day, but I got distracted… with stuff…
Anyway, Behemoth have unleashed the first song from their new, soon-to-be-released, album “The Satanist”. The track is called “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” and you can check it out below:
Can’t wait for the new album!
In case you’re not familiar with the concept of “Freebie of the Week”, here’s a brief explanation… Each week I go on a little hunt through the vast wastelands of the Internet in search of FREE and LEGAL downloads. So, all of the downloads featured here will be obtainable through trustworthy means… and they’ll be guilt-free. For example, I will only ever feature music available from official band websites, profiles (such as Bandcamp, MySpace, Reverbnation or Facebook) and Last.fm (or equivalent).
I found out about Path of Destiny thanks to CowboyFromHayes. I noticed that they had some free tracks available and they’re well worth a listen! Check them out via the widgets below:
The 5 band-members from Saalfeld/Thuringia (Germany) are ever since known to cook up their own “metal meal” consisting of heavy melodic death metal-riffs and a pinch of symphonic black metal. The songs add up the best parts of both music styles to a brutal but still melodic unity. Along with an orchestral background and fast drumming, especially the slightly strange vocals help the band to stand out amongst others.
Amongst the biggest achievements so far count the performances at the Legacy-Festival 2009 and Metalfest 2011 and the self-managed release of the 2 records “Rise and Fall” (May 2010) and “Parasite God” (February 2012).
Up on stage, Path of Destiny are characterised by their highly atmospheric presence and charismatic interaction with the crowd. The band-members always take care of good “metaltainment” by giving their crowd’s ears something special to listen to and their eyes something interesting to look at.
So take care to witness a performance of the special kind!

Morgawr are awesome for two main reasons:
- They make awesome music. I can support this claim by directing you to a Freebie of the Week we featured a fair while ago. You can check it out here.
- Their name makes me think of sea monsters and, frankly, sea monsters, Krakens and other tentacled creatures are generally awesome. It’s a fact. Don’t try to fight it.
Anyway… the awesome Morgawr are now set to record their new album. Recording is rather pricey, so they’ve set up a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter. Their aim is to raise £1,000 and this should cover all of their costs and give us a nice, tasty album at the end of it. If you’re interested in chucking a few quid their way just check out this page. You can also see the rewards that you could be entitled to.
Need a bit of info about the band before you make a pledge? No problem…
Formed in 2007 under the name ‘Aesir’ their sound has evolved from a more mainstream ‘folk oriented’ metal to a progressive mix of doom and black metal – This enables the band to really merge whatever metal subgenres they wish without polluting the ferociousness, depth and originality of their music.
