Tasmanian extreme metal stalwarts, PSYCROPTIC, have unveiled a new video for their track Beyond The Black. The song is from their 2018 album, As The Kingdom Drowns; the video was filmed in 2019.
Of the new video the band comments:
“We’re very happy have once again worked with our good friend and long time collaborator Wilson Bambrick on the film clip for Beyond The Black. The clip was shot last pre-isolating (in September 2019); and due to the Plague and other delays on our end it hasnt seen the light until now. Please enjoy, and we look forward to getting some new music out later this year.”
Released almost two years ago, As The Kingdom Drowns is PSYCROPTIC’s seventh studio album. Since their inception in 1999, the Tasmanian band have lost none of their appetite for pushing boundaries and embracing the all facets of death metal and beyond. With more than two decades of experience under their belts, the promise of new music will have extreme metal fans around the globe on alert.

SCARRED is a Death Metal Band from Luxembourg formed in 2003. Initially they started out as a Thrash Metal Project which released an E.P. called “Inner Scars” in 2004. However, through the years and after various line-up changes, they evolved towards a heavier and more brutal sound. In 2009 their first full-length album “New Filth Order” was released. Since then, Scarred has performed alongside many great artists and on major stages such as Wacken Open Air and Metalcamp. Due to many different influences, Scarred’s precise genre is hard to define and should be discovered.
On May 10 2013, Scarred released their new album entitled “Gaia/Medea” under the banner of Klonosphere / Season of Mist Distribution. This Opus was mixed and mastered by Jochem Jacobs (Textures) at Split Second Sound Studio and features a guest solo by Attila Vörös (Nevermore, Leander Rising).
NUCLEAR BLAST has issued the following:
ORIGIN One of the most intense and technical bands of the contemporary death metal world, ORIGIN, have returned to stake their claim as the leaders of metal’s new wave of extremity with their fifth studio record entitled Entity. As expected, ORIGIN continue to churn out frantic hell paced grids of metal torment, but now further compliment the arrangements with a new found propensity for churning grooves and the hook laden approach that first reared its ugly, but accessible head on the bands 2007 offering, Antithesis.
Joining the frantic torment for a long overdue return to Europe will be PSYCROPTIC, whose latest opus ‘The Inherited Repression’ is set to be released worldwide in Feb 2012. Staying clear of trends, PSYCROPTIC incorporate many different elements of musical genres – extreme and otherwise – to capture a sound that is uniquely their own: a precise blend of brutality, intensity and groove.
Rounding out the trio is the deadly grinding bang of LENGT TCH’E. Styled by themselves as razorgrind, the four maniacs that make up LENG TCH’E are determined to shred all before them. With two more acts to be announced, this tour looks set to crush its way around Europe and prove to be one of the most devastating runs of the year.
