Future Hits 071: Bleeding Oath

January 20th, 2011

Bleeding Oath
From: London, UK
Lazy equation: (Opeth – death metal) x black metal – Enslaved

Thrash Hits verdict: These guys are probably years away from the finished article, but the raw potential of black metal atmospherics and prog jazziness are there. Maybe that’s why they are one of the bands in the running to support Evile at the London show of their upcoming February tour.

Album: Atheist – Jupiter

November 16th, 2010

Seasons Of Mist
08 November 2010

by Tom Dare

Once one of the all-time greats of technical death metal – a pioneer for adding jazzy progression to the style – Atheist returned to the studio following an absence of over a decade and a half to record a new album, Jupiter. But after so many years, and so much evolution in extreme metal in the intervening years, the risk looms large that they may have been left behind.

Metal Mark gets ticketed for drinking too much; hangs out with Baroness and Behemoth

February 17th, 2010

What’s going on my metal friends! After two months I have returned to let you in on what I’ve been up to. Some of you may have been worried that I died of alcohol poisoning, maybe I should have three or four times, but I’m here! Luckily I could spend more on alcohol recently, since there were only a few shows coming through the Atlanta area. It worked out perfectly!

2008 into 2009: Omnium Gatherum

December 13th, 2008

Markus Vanhala from the self-proclaimed, “Finnish melodic death kings of metal”, Omnium Gatherum, is giving us some jibberjabber. We bloody love Finnish people. Perkele! Yksi olut! Kiitos! Other Finnish words!

What was your highlight of 2008?
There were lots of highlights in our career in 2008 as Omnium Gatherum released our best work to date, the fourth album, The Redshift, which I’m still proud of and after already many months so that’s somethin’ new, haha. The album went Top 30 in Finland which was cool indeed and we also did great tours with Dark Tranquillity in UK and with Nile and Grave in Europe and a lots of good Finnish headlining gigs. Happy days, memorial nights and hangöveric [We don’t know why there’s an umlaut there either – Ed] mornings!
