Just a quick article to remind you to save some pennies as we go into the new year for some upcoming releases…

Marc Rizzo

Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy guitarist Marc Rizzo has set the release date for his new LP Rotation, in stores March 30th via Combat Records/EMP Label Group/Amped in North America, and Combat/SPV in Europe. Rotation is the fourth solo release for Rizzo, following 2004’s Colossal Myopia, 2006’s The Ultimate Devotion (both released by legendary shred label Shrapnel), and the independently released 2010 LP Legionnaire.

Produced by Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Hatebreed, Soulfly, Rob Zombie, Chimaira), and featuring cover art by Melody Myers (Escape The Fate), Rotation is a blistering showcase of Rizzo’s pummeling eclectic diversity, showcased on album tracks including “Spectral Intensities”, “Thrash Boogie”, and title track “Rotation”, combining Rizzo’s penchant for pummeling, low-end riffs, with thrash-intensive leads and heavy Latin flavour.

The album includes ten tracks and was produced by Soldiers of Solace, recorded at Dexters Lab Recording LLC by Nick Bellmore and Zeuss.

At the beginning of 2012 the band released debut single “The Farthest Shore” and in 2014 released their second single “Prince of Ice” and an official video clip for the song. The band lyrics tell stories about mythology, legends, ancient gods, mythical creatures and some are based on fantasy literature.

Labyrinth Entrance

Godz Ov War Productions are proud to present the debut release of Labyrinth Entrance, a solo project from Hunger known from, among others, Stillborn and Horror of Naatu.

Monumental Bitterness contains more than forty minutes of music primarily enrooted in widely interpreted black metal in which classic heavy metal meets industrial suffocation, and intense death metal has been flavoured with a rocking feeling. The entirety has been consistently intertwined with unique melodies and embellished with daring vocal parts.
