Sangrena one of the most classic and underrated brutal death metal bands from Brazilian land (arguably they were the first ones who tried in this style) seems to be back after a long time since their last album Blessed Black Spirit from 2009.

It’s been a long way ever since and they are talking about a new album for some years now.

But finally, they announced in a very vague advertisement about a “2007” album giving no certain date. The working title is Hunter All that is known by the fans so far is that the album is already recorded, but in which phase of process (mixing, mastering, manufacturing) is unknown.

Since the beginning of times Sangrena had endured a great deal of line-up changings being Luciano Fedel (vocals, bass) and Fábio Ferreira (guitars, also a renowned producer) the only constant members. But the line-up has been stable for the last couple of years with Gustavo Bonfá (guitars) and Alan Marques (drums).

Once the date of release of Hunter is revealed, Dark Souls United readers will be the first to know!

Torqverem is announcing that it will take part in the Kaziklu Bey tribute with a bunch of underground alumni, like Herege, Mausoleum, Bestymator, Wodanaz, Ayperos, Black Achemoth, Malediction, among others to pay eulogy to the late Carpathian Tepes who died in a workplace accident on January 12th, 2013. 

Back in the day, the band decided to play one last show in homage to Tepes in December of the same year, then called it quits.

Now Brazilian Ritual Records is going to release this tribute, fully entitled: Odes to Tepes, Tributo (sic) to Kaziklu Bey

However according to Eduardo Beherit, the owner of Brazilian Ritual Records, the tribute is set to be available in the second semester with no certain date of release. 

Coincidently, Fernando Iser, who is a full member of Torqverem, played in Kaziklu Bey as well.

Nile – Departure of Dallas Toler-Wade and tour with Overkill

The show must go on.

dallas_toler_wade_of_nile_by_lisatiffanygellar-d6tse2z

Dallas Toler-Wade is not a member of Nile anymore and it seems to be a while since they announced his departure just now. Toler-Wade stayed with Nile for almost 20 years which made him a key member of the band and he’ll be missed by fans. He started his contribution in the album Black Seeds of Vengeance and stayed in the band in every record ever since.

16640564_10154238514441016_5494101280085642621_nDallas Toler-Wade “has decided to leave the band to focus on his own plans and recordings”, according to their Facebook page. This project may or may not be his other band Narcotic Wasteland.

Their newest member is Brian Kingsland (Guitars, Vocals, also from the South Carolina technical death/black band Enthean.

Today they embark in a tour with almighty Overkill covering 24 cities across USA.

Say Karl Sanders and George Kollias on their Facebook page:

Karl Sanders

“I would like to personally thank Dallas Toler Wade for his many years with the band, and sincerely wish him well with his music .

All of us in Nile are truly happy and thankful to be working with Brian . Not only is he a seriously talented Extreme Metal Guitar Shredder, but he has a great Brutal Metal voice , with a very versatile range . Brian is also a genuine , down-to-earth hard -working and motivated guy who has helped reignite and re-establish a sense of team work back into Nile. With the addition of Brian on guitar and vocals, The band right now seems to me a lot more like the early years of Nile– the Classic Nile era when we were all functioning as a cohesive unit , in viciously brutal Triple Vocal attack mode . The mood in the Nile rehearsal room for the last 3 months has been focused and relaxed ; with 4 positive , energized , hard working people all on the same Metal page. We simply can’t wait to share what we have been working on with Metal Fans on the upcoming Overkill Tour. Between the addition of Brian , and Bassist / Vocalist Brad Parris now in his 2nd year in the band , this line-up is going to Crush Skulls. Seriously, the last time I felt this strongly about a Nile Line-up – was when George Kollias joined the band.”

George Kollias

“I want to thank Dallas for everything he did for Nile all these years, its been some amazing years and i wish him the best with his new project!

Also, I want to say a big “welcome to Nile” to Brian Kingsland! Brian is an amazing guitar player/vocalist and he has brought a very fresh vibe to the band, we are so looking forward to get out there and deliver the best metal you ever heard from us! See you all on the road !!”

16195683_10208302205459750_5783652933694236465_n

Odes In Tenebris (aka Bestial Wolf Berserker) from the Brazilian occult bands Wodanaz and Mausoleum is back with a new brand of Black Metal with some of his cohorts in Wodanaz with the sophomore release, the single Fragmentos de um Crânio (the first one was the demo Ato I – Ao vivo no UMF XVIII)

Unfortunately, there is only one song which is midtempo and sung in Portuguese. Do you want to hear it? It’s streaming for free on Bandcamp but you can always get the digital copy for a dollar. Link is here: https://labaroculto.bandcamp.com/releases

Good thing is that if you’re NOT into digital, Misanthropic Records will be releasing it on the second semester of 2017. It’s a long road but it’s always good to have a head start to buy it.

To ask for a correct release date in the long running, go to Misanthropic Records on Facebook for further informationhttps://www.facebook.com/MisanthropicRecords/?fref=ts
