    BIO: Dubai is where, in the late 1990s, guitarist Alex Zubair and drummer Alan Madhavan came together to form Nephelium, guided by the sole vision of a band comprised of equal parts complexity and brutality.

    Staying true to the roots of death metal, Nephelium was quick to forge ahead with experimentation, pulling in influences from metal and other genres.

    With the hope of spreading Nephelium’s insidious gospel across the world, Zubair and Madhavan settled in Toronto, Canada where they completed the band’s lineup and immediately began playing shows and tearing up local stages, which quickly led to opening slots for metal heavyweights Skinless and Deicide.

    Following a tumultuous journey spanning ten years, two continents and countless lineup changes, Nephelium is ready to once again give the death metal world a good shaking with the release of their debut album, Coils of Entropy.

    The embodiment of Nephelium’s journey to striking the perfect balance between technical death metal, old school metal and Arabian melodies, Coils of Entropy is a six-track masterpiece set to breathe new life into today’s dwindling death metal landscape.

    - 30 -

    “…they’ve already become more-and other-than just another entity inspired by the likes of Nile, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, Vader and Cannibal Corpse. Much of Coils appeal resides in the band’s capacity for incorporating technique without coming off as merely technical. Madhavan’s a monster. Zubair is a master, consistently loading beautifully constructed solos with maximum emotional payloads to create genuinely memorable moments.” Decibel Magazine

    “They’re churning out death metal akin to heavyweights like Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Vader and Nile”- Deciblog (Decibel Magazine)

    “Bringing brutality to your ears from the Emirates, Nephelium’s natural habitat is quite clearly devastating death metal.” Terrorizer Magazine

    “First spawned in the desert sands of Dubai but since relocated to the snowy climes of Toronto, Nephelium offer up a bloody feast of brutal death metal as extreme as the temperature differences between their choices of location. Powered along by the intense blasting of ex-Nervecell drummer Alan Madhavan, these six convoluted songs combine supreme technicality with brutal bludgeoning power. With a multitude of neck-jarring twists and turns, a bucket-load of explosive riffs, and some sewer-dredging vocal savagery, Coils of Entropy has pretty much everything you can ask for from a slab of brutal, technical modern death metal.” – Zero Tolerance Magazine

    “”Coils of Entropy” is brutal, technical and fast.” – Powerplay Magazine

    “One of the best death metal albums you will hear this coming year. Superb release and I am looking forward to seeing them live some time soon. I would definitely recommend this to lovers of slow death metal in the vein of Grave, Bolt Thrower, Autopsy, Immolation and the like. Brilliant release.” – AlternativeMatter.net

    “Nephelium’s introduction to the headbanging masses is a completely solid choice for brutal death metal fans. “Coils of Entropy” keeps up the extreme heaviness necessary to please fans of straight death metal, and manages to throw in a good bit of complexity without getting pretentious or overly melodic.” – MetalUnderground.com

    “Brutal, sludgy, precise, dark, atmospheric, and surprisingly catchy, Nephelium tackle death metal with the precision of a surgeon’s hand, or a Jigsaw trap. If you’re looking for some new death metal to sink your teeth into, this is it….“Merciless Annihilation,” an intricate, tough-as-nails, riff-ridden, technical masterpiece.” – Yell! Magazine

    “Just straight up ripping, pummeling, brutal groovy death metal — no bells and whistles, just the way I like it.” – MetalSucks.net

    “If you’re tired of the same old shit, then it’s time to try something different and Nephelium certainly gave me that fix.” – WeLoveMetal.com
    Dubai may be known as a city rich in history, a business hub and the home of the tallest structure in the world, but it’s also the birthplace of one of the first death metal bands to come out of the Middle East.

  • SCARLET RECORDS release Resurrection's DEATH SS

    As its title suggests, ‘Resurrection’ marks the return of seminal heavy metal band Death SS and its charismatic leader Steve Sylvester. The band’s latest album, ‘The Seventh Seal’, came out to critical acclaim some 7 years ago in 2006.
    ‘Resurrection’ alternates the two topics that have always been the main inspirations behind the Death SS project: horror movies and occultism. But for the first time ever, Steve wanted to add another one of his main influences in a more explicit way: the Italian sexy-horror comics of the Seventies! The beautiful illustrations used for the album cover and booklet were handled by the great "maestro" Emanuele Taglietti, an internationally renowned painter and author of all the covers of cult adult comics such as ‘Belzeba’, ‘Zora’, ‘Sukia’, ‘Cimiteria’, ‘La Poliziotta’ to name a few.
    A big change happened also on the production front. For the first time after the release of ‘Black Mass’ in 1989, Steve produced the album himself without the supervision of a well known, external producer, simply relying on the experience he has matured in almost 35 years of career in the music business. These 12 new songs represent one of the finest bands in heavy metal still on top of its game.

    · The long-waited new album of the legendary heavy metal band!
    · 12 brand new songs representing one of the most influential acts of all times, still on top of its game
    · Besides the usual horror movies and occultism topics, Steve Sylvester introduces in this album his great passion for Italian sexy comics of the Seventies for the first time ever
    · The beautiful illustrations used for the album cover and booklet were handled by internationally renowned painter Emanuele Taglietti
    · The album was preceded by the higly succesfull EP ‘The Darkest Night’. An accompanying video was released at the same time
    · A video for the second single Ogre’s Lullaby was also released
    · A video for the third single Eaters is in the making and will be released soon
    · Ads, reviews and interviews have already being planned and will appear in all the relevant Heavy Metal media worldwide
