Introducing SATYRESS

You're set to release "Dark Fortunes" soon. What can you tell us about the writing process and how the album came together?

Billy: Dark Fortunes is a culmination of some previously unfinished LSD&D tracks and original tracks written by Satyress.

After LSD&D went into Hiatus, Alex,Yorck and Billy kept on writing new material.  Jamie started jamming with the band in late 2012.

Jamie: The vocal writing process in general involved recording the first few times a track was played in our practice space, lyrics were purely based on how the music made me feel at the time.

Billy: After Playing a hand full of shows, We entered the studio in late summer 2013. The studio process really brought to light the immense intensity of LaRose's vocal punch.  We where all amazed on how well the album turned out!  We had spent a long time in the practice shed working out these songs.  Then, to have them come out better that you could have imagined, just rocks!

What's the background of the band? Is this is a new project? Have you played together under different names?

Billy:  The Core of the group was the rhythm section for LSD&D.  Satyress is a new band with Alex Fast on bass, Billy Nitetooth on guitars, Jamie LaRose on vocals and Yorck Franken on drums.  Alex fast also plays bass in The Lovesores.

We've heard a few tracks online but what can we expect from the rest of the album?

Jamie:  Dark is light.  Black is white.  Death is life.  It's a spiritual journey of doomed down soul that hopefully some will follow and feel more whole.  There are space traveling guitar solos, heavy haunting riffs, drums so right on the mood you'll blow your mind.  The last track "Archaic Passage" will work out your inner ears with its strange and beautiful structure leaving you in the beginning again from the end.

SABBATH ASSEMBLY - I, Satan [Music Video]

Today, the ever-singular SABBATH ASSEMBLY premiere the video for “I, Satan”. The most monstrous track from their highly anticipated third album, Quaternity, set for international release on March 28th via SVART RECORDS, the video for "I, Satan" was created entirely by the band, and the song features text from sacred Process Church of the Final Judgment scriptures, all written from the standpoint of the Lord of the Underworld. The song delivers a brutal assault with lines such as “Burn the chaff of humanity, dance proud around the leaping flames,” and “Put aside your litanies, priest, Satan does not retreat.” Additional lyrical inspiration comes from “Inno A Satana” a classic poem used in Satanic liturgies since it was published in1865, written by Italian Nobel Prize Winner Giosue Carducci.

CONAN - Foehammer (Official Video)

THE GRAVIATORS - Narrow Minded Bastards (Official Video)


After the release of their fantastic and critically acclaimed full length "Evil Deeds" and the split 7" with their label mates MONKEY3, THE GRAVIATORS return with their latest studio effort "Motherload". The brilliant vintage analog sound combines the Hard Rock of the Seventies with a good dose of Doom Metal and Stoner Rock. For the very first time, THE GRAVIATORS pay homage to their cultural heritage. The result is the song "Leifs Last Breath / Dance of the Valkyrie". It is an epic track that could have been written by Quorthon (BATHORY) himself. The songs give off an occult vibe that mainly results from the enthralling vocals. A special bonus is the re-recording of "Druid´s Ritual", a classic from the band's back catalogue. The song clocks in at almost 14min and is a testament to the band's brilliance. "Motherload" is an impressive Doom Stoner Metal album filled with highlights and will elevate THE GRAVIATORS from being an insider's tip to the top of the scene.

MANTAR TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM ON SVART

February 2014 sees the two-piece German monster MANTAR release their debut album on SVART RECORDS. Recorded earlier in 2013 and titled Death By Burning, the album is a raw, self-produced, and 100% DIY display of power. The half-German/half-Turkish band has existed for less than a year and released one limited run 7" - probably sold out by the time you read this.

MANTAR manages to sound even heavier than most five-piece bands you may know, in spite of the fact that no bass guitar was used on Death by Burning - just drums and guitar set for destruction. Forget about rock 'n' roll: this will hurt. Flogging beats and blackened melodies meet feedback orgies and doom mayhem - early Melvins, Motorhead, Darkthrone, you name it. Don't call it sludge, though. Everything as black as possible, a soundtrack for the final battle.

SVART RECORDS will unleash the black 10-track attack on February 7th, 2014 on CD, LP, tape, and digital. The first sample track off the album is titled "White Nights," and can be heard below.
