Last Album News post until next week due to Bloodstock duties!
Milan, Italy’s hard rock heroes Sixty Miles Ahead have revealed the album art, track listing, and release date for their new full-length album, Insanity. The album consists of twelve songs and is set for an October 21st release date through Eclipse Records.
The band’s unique ability to hybridize hard rock canons with heavy metal guitars (and a hint of contemporary rock), makes Insanity a landmark release for the band. The album also highlights their progression and maturity as songwriters, like never before.

From India not Scandinavia, emerges a band expanding upon the sound laid down by the masters. With mixing done by the dark death metal expert Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios (Cruciamentum, Chthe’ilist, etc.) and mastering by the legend Dan Swano at Unisound Studios (Asphyx, Bloodbath, etc.), everything has been done to perfectly capture the right sound intended for music of this ilk. With influences ranging from Demilich, Adramelech, Demigod, (early) Amorphis, Funebre and Nihilist, Darkrypt have taken the best elements of all and forged a sound that retains the local flavour and yet creates music that’s classic in intent, memorable as well as catchy.
With guest appearances by Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, The Grotesquery, etc.), Nitin Rajan (Primitiv), not to mention the lyrical contribution of Riju Dasgupta (Albatross, Primitiv), this is probably the most ambitious debut by a new band from the country. Even devoid of all these contributions, the album on its own merit is rife with excellent riffs, varying tempos capturing a myriad contrasting moods, able percussion propelling the mind-melting structures, and thoughtful vocal delivery so as not to kill the effectiveness of death metal that’s heaving with an ability to express.
Delirious Excursion is out on October 15th through Transcending Obscurity India. Track listing is as below:
- The Becoming Alteration
- Dark Crypt
- Chasm of Death
- Abstract Submission
- Cryptic Illusions (ft. Rogga Johansson)
- Folie a Deux
- Limbic Dichotomy
- The Inducer (ft. Nitin Rajan of Primitiv)
- The Acceptor
Visionary swedish metallers Soilwork have released the fourth Inside Death Resonance video trailer in which singer Björn “Speed” Strid talks about the band’s upcoming special collection of rarities, Death Resonance (out August 19, 2016 via Nuclear Blast).
Blackened death metal powerhouse Warfather has releases a stream of “Judgement, The Hammer.” The newest track off the band’s upcoming album The Grey Eminence reunites Warfather mastermind with his former Morbid Angel bandmate Erik Rutan. Rutan, who handled production duties for the album, joined Tucker as a guest vocalist on what is easily one of the album’s most brutal songs.
The album will be released September 16 on Greyhaze Records. Pre-order it at this location.
