My Kingdom Music has announced the following:
It is with great honour that we announce the signing of the next Italian big thing into decadent and melancholic sonorities for the next two albums: LENORE S. FINGERS.
Comin’ from the southernmost region of Italy, LENORE S. FINGERS are ready to debut on February 24th, 2014, with “Inner Tales”, a 9 tracks album standing at the deep heart of each listener with the alienating and decadent young Federica Lenore’s voice who explains the never-ending solitude of a girl, lost between tragic memories of her past and the most unconfortable fears for the future. The whole is surrounded by a Rock solid wall of distorted guitar riffs and an intense groundbreaking work made by the rhythmic section in the great tradition of bands like Katatonia, Anathema, Type O Negative, Antimatter and The Gathering.
Check out a sample of their art… “Cry Of Mankind”:

Spanish melodic death metallers SYNLAKROSS have released the new video “Paper In A histrory”. Single is taken from the album “Melodichrome” available from December 7. Check out it below:
Comments the band: “Paper in Hystory” is the theme chosen to present the debut album of Synlakross. It is a song with transhumanist inspiration, where the protagonist leaves aside his human body through mechanical improvements to become in perfect and immortal creature, or as popularly knowns “Mecha”, which means “Mechanical”.
It’s a song that represents what the listener will find listening the LP. Which is full of references to Transhumanism , to space travel , Cyborgs , and other elements of the Cyberpunk culture. Elements that fit perfectly with a strong inspiration in classic games like Metroid and Final Fantasy , comics like Gunnm or doctrines of Nicola Tesla.
Available from December 7 on Itunes, Amazon, Deezer, Rhapsody and Spotify. Collectors can buy a physical CD through the website of the band.

SO MUCH FOR NOTHING have further outlined their qualities on the debut album “Livsgnist” in 2012. We are really glad to welcome the two Norwegians at the UNDER THE BLACK SUN 2014. Don’t miss them!
