Tempest Rising: Drop new single and video for Ghosts & Album Alter-Ego out August 9
A unique and powerful live band, Western Australia’s Tempest Rising, hit the road as often as they can. Since 2012, they have toured anywhere and everywhere – from gleaming capital cities to dusty outback towns – forging themselves as one of the most distinctive and engaging metal bands in the country. Kicking off 2019 with a bang, they have emerged from the studio with a ferocious new album, also having just returned from their first European tour. Following on from 2014’s Transmutation, Alter Ego finds Tempest Rising heavier, groovier and more musically ambitious than ever.
Shifting from soaring melody to sheer brutality in a heartbeat, Alter Ego displays a jaw-dropping fluency in heavy music. A vortex of drums, bass, guitar and vocals, each track is a blistering showcase of the band’s talented line-up of seasoned, accomplished musicians. Together, Tempest Rising flawlessly tread the tightrope between heaviness and technicality, drawing from the history of metal while carving out the shape of things to come.
Engineered and mixed by Chaos Divine’s Simon Mitchell, Alter Ego is an absolute pinnacle of songwriting, performance and production. A perfect case in point, the album’s first taster Breathe and new single Ghosts is everything at once: complexly rich in crushing power and virtuosity, yet somehow immovably simple and uplifting.
More than anything else though, Tempest Rising are a live band. Honest and unpretentious, they are the kind of people who are found sharing a beer and a laugh with fans after every show. In any country, in any language, metal evokes the most passionate, loyal followers, and Tempest Rising want to meet them all. With the release of Alter Ego Tempest Rising have entered an exciting new chapter of their story that will cement them as one of the best emerging heavy bands around.
SERENE DARK Premieres “Where Time Drowns Still” Off Upcoming Debut Album
Like a blackened metallic phoenix rising from the ashes of their previous band Endemise; Ottawa’s SERENE DARK intends to take their extreme metal to new heights. Morphing from Endemise to SERENE DARK, these demons have joined forces with YouTube channel Black Metal Promotion for the premiere of their first single ‘Where Time Drowns Still’ off their forthcoming yet to be titled debut album, which was recorded at Wolf Lake Studios deep in the woods of Quebec. The upcoming album ushers a new era for SERENE DARK as the band worked with longtime producer Mike Bond (Loviatar) and session drummer Eric Morotti (Suffocation) to create a 10 song full length that plans to unleash a blistering force of evil. ‘Where Time Drowns Still’ lyrics deals with pain and loss, a theme that will be seen throughout the record.
Guitarist Dale Sauve adds:
“‘Where Time Drowns Still’ is one of our darkest songs to date and is a perfect representation of Serene Dark and the album we have nearly finished.”
