Century Media Records are proud to announce the worldwide signing of notorious Norwegian Black Metal forefathers MAYHEM. Founded in 1984 MAYHEM have released five studio albums as well as a number of demos, EPs and live albums since. Their debut full length “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” (1994) is considered by many to be the most influential Black Metal album of all time. Having left behind the controversy surrounding their early years, MAYHEM continued to push boundaries and can nowadays be considered one of the most innovative forces of extreme metal & sinister art, which applies to both their live shows and their recent studio recordings.
The band comments:
“Once again Mayhem is writing a new chapter in its 35 year history. We are excited to now have joined forces with Century Media and are eager to see what this partnership can do for us both in the future.”
MAYHEM’s sixth album will be released on October 25th.

CHON is excited to share their new single ‘Petal’, which is available to steam, here: https://spoti.fi/2vHjjoh.
‘Petal’ is the second single to release off of CHON’s third, and self-titled record, out on 07 June via Sumerian Records. Fans can watch the music video for the first single ‘Peace’ here: http://bit.ly/2UtRXzW.
For more information and to pre-order the album, please visit: www.thisischon.com.
On their self-titled third album, CHON find themselves at the confluence of a great push and pull.
Since forming in 2008 in San Diego, guitarists Mario Camarena and Erick Hansel, along with drummer Nathan Camarena and bassist Esiah Camarena have become one of the most buzzed-about acts in the new era of progressive rock, on the back of more than 40 million Spotify streams and tours with the likes of Coheed and Cambria, Animals As Leaders and Circa Survive.
Their debut full-length, 2015’s “Grow”, established their mathy, forward-thinking take on the genre, while 2017’s “Homey” furthered that sound while incorporating brand-new influences like effect-pedal-heavy elements of electronic music and trip-hop and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart. Now, with “CHON”, the band once again has kicked down their musical guardrails — but in a way that balances their more eccentric impulses with a steadying dose of clarity and restraint.
It’s true that “CHON” streamlines some of the band’s grandiose, free-flowing musicality in favour of more traditional sonic structures. But, most importantly, simplifying their sound doesn’t mean resorting to being boring. If anything, “CHON” is brimming with some of the most forward-thinking, intricate musings the band has ever attempted, from the deep progressive propulsion of first single ‘Peace’ to ‘Spike’, which spins the band’s youthful tech and metal influences together into a flashy riff-athon.
All at once, “CHON” respects the band’s current listeners while inviting a broader swath of new ones in — the rare progressive rock album adroit enough to straddle that line.
At Coachella last month, CHON brought out special guests Kenny G, Cuco and Masego during their performance. Coming up, the band will hit Shaky Knees and Electric Forest, along with a full U.S. tour to celebrate the release of “CHON” with support from DOMi & JD Beck. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.
“CHON” is set to release on 07 June via Sumerian Records. For more information, please visit: www.thisischon.com

With “The Hunter” FIRESPAWN are releasing the second single of their up – coming studio album entitled “Abominate”, which will be released via Century Media Record on June 7th .
Listen to “The Hunter” HERE!
A.Impaler: “ The Hunter is a perfect example of what I mean when I say that Firespawn always thinks outside the box and always aiming to evolve. It is Death Metal but it’s no way near traditional Death Metal, it’s Firespawn!
“Abominate” will be available in the following formats and can be purchased HERE!
limited CD Digipak Gatefold black LP+CD & LP-Booklet Digital album Gatefold transp. green LP+CD & LP- Booklet Gatefold transp. orange LP+CD & LP-Booklet
As with “Shadow Realms” and “Reprobate”, the Swedes re-hired Italian painter Paolo Girardi (Power Trip, Artificial Brain) to realize “Abominate’s” disturbing cover. The simple themes of past covers return: the nameless Firespawn demon, the surrounding hordes, chaos, and lots of death. Girardi’s trademark style—as inspired by Caravaggio, Goya, and Guercino—using colors like burnt umber and antimony yellow are in full view on “Abominate”.
FIRESPAWN is the incarnate abomination of LG Petrov (Entombed A.D.), Victor Brandt (Dimmu Borgir), Fredrik Folkare (Unleashed, ex-Necrophobic), A. Impaler (Necrophobic, Naglfar) and Matte Modin (ex-Dark Funeral).
LG Petrov – vocals
Fredrik Folkare – guitar

New Years Day have released an American Psycho inspired music video for “Shut Up”. Watch the music video, directed by Galileo Mondol (Raging Nation Films), and staring Sirius XM’s Jose Mangin and the original ax from American Psycho, HERE.
“When we recorded the song ‘Shut Up’ I knew right then and there, on that day, straight away, what I wanted to do if we were ever to make a music video for it. It came to me immediately. So when the time came and ‘Shut Up’ was chosen for a music video, I was thrilled because it meant that I’d get to make my vision come to life, which was to recreate one of my favorite horror movies of all time, ‘American Psycho’”, states New Years Day frontwoman Ash Costello about the music video.
“Shut Up”, the lead single off of the band’s newest full-length album, Unbreakable, is celebrating five weeks on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart and five weeks on the Active Rock Chart and is currently #21 on both charts. The track just surpassed 1.26 million total worldwide streams and has been featured on “Rock Hard“, “Heavy Queens“, “New Metal Tracks“, “New Noise“, and “Fierce Femmes” playlists, along with Apple Music’s Breaking Hard Rock” playlist and Amazon Music’s “Rock Scene“, “Brand New Music“, and “Fresh Hard Rock” playlists. Additionally, the band’s debut track, “Skeletons”, has over 3.5 million streams and “Come For Me” saw New Years Day cross over into the mainstream with their first “New Music Friday” Spotify placement.
Unbreakable, produced by Mitchell Marlow (All That Remains, In This Moment) and Scott Stevens (Halestorm, Shinedown & American Authors), came out this past Friday, April 26th via RED MUSIC. Unbreakable is available on for purchase and on all streaming platforms HERE.
Formed in Orange County, Calif. by Ashley Costello, New Years Day shook the scene with their Century Media debut, Victim to Villain, in 2013 featuring their breakout single “Angel Eyes.” The five-piece later cemented their place in the heavy music landscape with their Epidemic EP and critically-acclaimed Malevolence full-length in 2015, clocking more than 20 million views on YouTube. The band has since become the most visually-captivating group in modern rock, playing for millions of fans around the world, sharing the stage with Ozzy Osbourne, Halestorm, Nine Inch Nails, Escape The Fate, Hellyeah and Five Finger Death Punch while also headlining the longest-running touring festival, Vans Warped Tour, in 2017. As new challenges and new worlds beckon, the band released their most recent EP, Diary of a Creep, in January to pay tribute to the artists who shaped them thus far. The EP featured renditions of Garbage’s “Only Happy When It Rains,” New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle,” No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” and their original track “Disgust Me”.

“The Great War” will be available worldwide through Nuclear Blast Records on 19 July.
The band started the recordings exactly 100 years after the end of the First World War (11/11/1918) and took 3 months of intensive work to complete the album together with their long term producer and partner Jonas Kjellgren at Black Lounge Studios. Furthermore, the album has been mastered by Maor Appelbaum and the artwork was once again created by Peter Sallaí.
“This is not the first time we have sung about stories from this period in time, but now we felt the timing was right to make a full concept album about this war”, explain the band.
In addition, SABATON posted this trailer revealing more details about the amazing artwork – watch it here: https://youtu.be/HCZP1-JsD0M
Alongside the album, the Swedes have worked hard to make their 20th year anniversary a very exciting year, and also started the SABATON History Channel – a unique collaboration between the band themselves and multimedia historians Indy Neidell and Timeghost – capturing the power of social media to tell stories about the wars, battles and heroes behind SABATON’s songs. Subscribe to the YouTube channel via this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaG4CBbZih6nLzD08bTBGfw
“This is the biggest album we have taken on so far.There is more depth and story around the songs that we have ever had before”, Pär Sundström announces. “Expect many surprises as we have tried new things and we also went back in time to a concept we know a lot of you love. The Great War has been created side by side with the Sabaton History Channel to make 2019 the most exciting year in our 20 year history.”
Many more live shows will be announced shortly, but don’t miss the chance to see SABATON perform their new battle hymns during their summer festival run at one of these dates (including the band’s very own annual SABATON OPEN AIR in their hometown Falun):

Boston-based metallers ICE NINE KILLS have announced their live return to the UK this September, in support of their latest blood-drenched album, The Silver Scream, out now on Fearless Records. Alongside the announcement of the new tour dates, the band have unveiled an animated video for a new acoustic version of “A Grave Mistake” – check it out here: https://youtu.be/_8GpTP7CYGg
Frontman Spencer Charnas enthuses: “We are dying to unleash the sheer horror that is, ‘THE SILVER SCREAM’, on foreign soil. I wouldn’t sleep on ‘The American Nightmare’ Tour’ if I were you…”
The quartet were set to play the House Of Blues at Walt Disney World Orlando, Florida this Friday 26th April, but were banned from performing by Disney, who took offence to the band’s often violent imagery. Never ones to shy away from conflict, the band responded by launching a Merch range in protest.
The band stated: “As many of you know a certain mouse-loving enterprise has deemed us too “evil” to perform at a certain Orlando venue of theirs. Rather than protest, we are accepting this seemingly misguided assumption with great honor. To celebrate the banishment, we are dedicating our ‘Nightmare on the Ninth’ monthly special to the launch of TooEvilForChildren.com”
The Silver Scream, the fifth record from ICE NINE KILLS, is a definitive achievement. A conceptually driven post-metalcore masterpiece with the catchiness and spirit of pop-punk and the fist-pumping anthem power of arena rock, The Silver Scream is 13 songs of horror movie inspired madness. Just as their previous album, Every Trick in the Book, drew from classic literary works (including Animal Farm, Dracula, and Romeo and Juliet), each song on The Silver Scream is a tribute to a different iconic cinema classic, the types of movies that inspire the same sort of fandom as music. The album is the group’s most successful to date, having sold over 70,000 units and clocking over 65 million streams.

Hell freezes over as BELZEBUBS finally release their eagerly anticipated Century Media debut “Pantheon of the Nightside Gods”. Consisting of nine tracks and a running time of over 53 minutes, the critically acclaimed album presents a delicious blend of black & death metal only two-dimensional advanced Luciferian beings can conjure.
“We’re very proud of this one”, vocalist/guitarist Sløth admits. “They say the Devil is in the details, and this record is full of them. There’s a lot of neat things to discover throughout the album. I mean, I’m still finding surprising stuff here—even in my own personal parts. Wait, that came out wrong.”
The album was mixed and mastered by industry legend Dan Swanö, also responsible for the sound of DARK FUNERAL’s ”The Secrets Of The Black Arts”, DISSECTION’s ”The Somberlain” and more. Belzebubs has previously released two music videos and a lyric video, which can be found here:
