Winnipeg, MB death metal band Psychotic Gardening has teamed up with extreme metal authority Decibel Magazine to premiere their new music video 'Origin of The Infection' directed by guitarist Andrew Wiens on Deciblog in support of their forthcoming album 'Hymnosis' set for release on May 13th.
Director/Guitarist Andrew Wiens comments:
"The video for 'Origin of the Infection' is gritty and dark. It's the first time we've had a chance to produce a storyline into one of our videos, which is something we've wanted to do for a long time. It's basically a metaphor for some of the things we see in society. It's certainly open to some interpretation in terms of the implications of what it means and we hope it will provoke thought.We're really proud of this one from a number of perspectives. It was put together by my video production company with my trusty director of photography Sam Karney and I. We had a number of the guys from the band chip in and help during the production of it. It all came together in what we feel to be the best video we've done to date by far."

The band returns in 2014 with new material and the return of Chuck Labossiere after he filled in with Broken Hope for tour dates in Europe and Canada. The album is the follow up to 2011's 'Humanitorium' and 2007's debut ‘Hürdür’ and features nine heavy hitting assaults sure to bang skulls with itsfull-throttle, go-for-the-throat execution of doom and black metal. In this release the band digs into its death metal roots for a concoction of their most vicious material while still hammering down on doom-laden monster riffs.
Music video 'Open Casket', a tribute to legendary Death featuring guest appearances from Tim Roth (Into Eternity) and Chuck Wepfer (Broken Hope).

“If you’re into that old school feel, you don’t want to miss out on this release” – Counter Culture Nerd
“Psychotic Gardening has delivered a new LP, Hymnosis, that will become an instant favorite of metal heads. This is not a debatable statement but one of fact and I believe that you will join me in that statement as you listen to the well crafted progressions and pounding drums. Each cut takes on a life of it’s own and you can not only hear the procession but also feel it as well. Do yourself a favor and get this LP on May 13th. Words can not even describe how much I enjoyed listening to this brutal work of metal art but I hope that you understand where I’m going with it.” – Tommy Tee – Insane Realm Radio
“Combining equal parts death-, doom- and black-metal, Psychotic Gardening creates a sonic assault on the ears and the soul in its latest album, Hymnosis…a solid effort with bits of black onyx lighting up through the muck and slime. The gods of darkness should be pleased with Psychotic Gardening’s offering.” – The Collegian
“Psychotic Gardening mixes elements of death, doom, thrash and classic heavy metal with great results: Hymnosis is nothing short of incredible. The first big highlight of summer 2014.” – Emurg
“Now the next leading act in the Canadian scene has certainly impressed me and given me hope for the vast land to churn out a lot of good music in the years to come. By that I am referring to blackened doom metal outfit: Psychotic Gardening and their fourth album: HYMNOSIS. This very impressive release opens with very loud, fast and extremely heavy black metal tunes from the first track.” – The Independent Voice

On May the 2nd, 2014, Drakkar will enter the studio to begin recording the successor to the acclaimed comeback album “When Lightning Strikes”. Veterans Dario Beretta (guitars), Davide Dell’Orto (vocals) and Simone Cappato (bass) will be joined by newcomers Emanuele Laghi (keyboards) and Paolo Pirola (drums), plus a few special guest musicians.
According to guitarist/composer Dario Beretta, the new record, called “Run With The Wolf” and scheduled for early 2015 on My Kingdom Music, will be “a very straightforward, direct album. After a concept so complex and thought-out like "When Lightning Strikes", we thought it was the right moment to do something very immediate and energetic. There are also a couple of songs that make use of traditional Irish melodies and chord progressions, something we’ve never done before. As a life-long fan of Thin Lizzy, I’m pretty excited to be finally able to incorporate those influences in our sound”.
The record will also celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band, which is coming in 2015.
“In all honesty,” said Beretta, “I never would have thought to reach such an important milestone when we were recording the first demos, back in the ’90s. To celebrate properly, we have invited some very good friends that we had the fortune to share the stage with a few times: Terence Holler (Eldritch), Olaf Thorsen (Labyrinth, Vision Divine) and Mat Stancioiu (Labyrinth, Crown Of Autumn) will all make special guest appearances on the album and I can’t thank them enough for that”.
As part of the 20 years celebration, "Run With The Wolf" will also come out in a very limited special edition with 5 classic Drakkar songs newly re-recorded. Longtime Drakkar-member Corrado Solarino will be taking keyboard duties on these remakes and Gabriels (Metaphysics, Gabriels) will also make a special appearance with his orchestral version of “Galadriel’ Song”.

Conquering audiences across Québec and Ontario with their unique look and high-energy stage performances since their inception in 2009, Montreal, QC based melodic death metal band Hollow are proud to announce the official release of their debut full length 'Mordrake' set to be unleashed on May 30th. Produced at Uplift Studios by Kevin Jardine (Slaves On Dope) and co-produced by Dan Lauzon (Entropy) and Hollow, the debut is the follow up to the band's 2010 EP 'Cynoptic Eschaton' and features a unique analogue approach towards extreme metal. Recorded without the use of any triggers, midi or copy/paste editing, the album showcases live off the floor performances that bring a breath of fresh air into an over-compressed and digital world of today's recordings.
Vocalist Mott comments:
"An offering of symphonic black metal, with origins and inspirations planted firmly in death and thrash, we are proud to release “Mordrake”, the fruit of our passion, dedication and hard work we were challenged with over the last year. Using an old school approach towards modern extreme metal to give the record a more straight to the point, early nineties vibe from today's digital era, we feel the album is direct, fast, heavy and powerful with a melodic background, merging influences and keeping the audience attentive and entertained. Simply put, there is something on “Mordrake” for every music aficionado out there. "
Hollow has shared three tracks online with fans from the release, which can be heard at the following links below.

“Clad in black and painted in ghostly, skeletal white and gray, Montreal’s Hollow is one of North America’s most deceptively original and subversive underground metal acts today. Exploiting the surface aesthetics of black metal, the band surprises with an abundance of musical diversity and depth.” – Metal Underground
“A primer on how extreme metal ought to sound: adventurous, expansive, daring, and heroic.” – Metal Underground
“Hollow nous donne ici un album complet, très ambiancé, progressif, heavy et lourd mais à la fois mélodique et complexe. Pour un première album, Hollow a mis la barre haute, voire même très haute, que ça sois du côté des ambiances ou des cœurs éparpiller ici et là dans toute les pièces de l’album ou bien de tous les instruments réunis, on as le droit ici a des compositions de haute qualité.” – Quebec Metal
“Orchestration majestueuse. Un piano nous proposant une belle déferlante de notes. Riff heavy speed et voix alternant le death et le black comme si Fleshgod Apocalypse avait laissé une trace de souffre de son passage sur le nouveau continent. Break orchestral et solo de guitare très technique et rapide. Ca décoiffe !” – Muzik Injection
