Formed in 2008, it will not be until this year that German melancholic band Décembre Noir releases their debut full length album, A Discouraged Believer. Already encountering much brutality from Germany, it is indeed refreshing to hear something of a more melodic nature out of the region, and Décembre Noir

While Skinfather hails from a land more known for it’s thrashy or crushing death metal exports, the band instead chooses a sound that leans more towards the Scandinavian end of the spectrum, and their debut full length None Will Mourn is an effort that will please fans of old school Swedish death metal.

LOUDBLAST: New Song ‘A Bloody Oath’ Available For Streaming

Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

"A Bloody Oath", a brand new song from French death metal veterans LOUDBLAST, can be streamed at this location. The track is taken from the band’s new album, "Burial Ground", which will be released in Europe on April 28 and the U.S. on June 10 via Listenable.

Three years ago, the "Frozen Moments Between Life And Death" CD proved to be LOUDBLAST's boldest move, recharged by the arrival of youngsters Alex Lenormand (bass, ex-LOCUSCODESIC) and Drakhian (lead guitar, GRIFFAR, ex-TAAKEBLACK DEMENTIA), guitaarits/vocalist Stéphane Buriez and his longtime drummer Hervé Coquerel threw all the rules out of the window without turning their backs on their roots.

The result of eighteen months of hard work, "Burial Ground" goes even further. A solid mix of classic old school reminiscent of early DEATH and CELTIC FROST and modern influences with a massive production and dark feel, it also dares transgressing their traditional thrash/death style of yore to achieve a much more malign yet as catchy sound.

The "Burial Ground" cover art was created by Will Kuberski of Worthless Endeavors, who also painted the INCANTATION “Vanquish In Vengeance” cover.

LOUDBLAST is:

Vocals/Guitar: Stéphane Buriez
Guitars: Drakhian
Bass: Alexandre Lenormand
Drums: Hervé Coquerel
