AKERCOCKE, A TRIUMPHANT RETURN WITH THEIR NEW STUDIO ALBUM

AKERCOCKE, THE CELEBRATED MASTERS OF DARK & TWISTED BRITISH EXTREME METAL MAKE A TRIUMPHANT RETURN WITH THEIR NEW STUDIO ALBUM, RENAISSANCE IN EXTREMIS. RELEASED 25th AUGUST.

Towering above the vast majority of nefarious contemporary noisemakers, London’s Akercocke erupted across the consciousness of the UK metal scene in the late ‘90s, wielding a fiendishly inventive blend of death, black and progressive metal. Immediately embraced by the British faithful upon the release of debut album ‘Rape Of The Bastard Nazarene‘, Akercocke spent the following decade leading the creative charge for their entire native scene. Despite enjoying furious momentum over the following years, the release of fifth album ‘Antichrist’ in 2007 saw the band retreat into the shadows, where they remained dormant for the best part of a decade.

Akercocke are ready to reveal the first track, entitled, “Disappear”, from their highly anticipated opus, Jason Mendonca introduces the song saying “Disappear gives a summary insight of all that follows on Renaissance in Extremis. It contains all of the classic Akercocke hallmarks, yet aptly represents the band’s development in intent, style and delivery.

2016 saw frontman and vocalist Jason Mendonca reconvening with drummer David Gray and returning original second guitarist Paul Scanlan to reignite the flames that first drove this band to deftly redefine an entire genre. Collectively buoyed by a renewed sense of purpose, the band reunited with former home Peaceville Records, to unleash their sixth full-length release – Renaissance In Extremis – mixed by legendary studio guru Neil Kernon [Nile/Deicide/Thin Lizzy/Yes] & mastered in NYC by Alan Douches [Death, Misfits, CroMags] at West West Side Music., Renaissance In Extremis is nothing short of a new dawn for these most eccentric of extremists.

A comprehensive reinvention and expansion of the band’s multifarious sound, Renaissance In Extremis delivers euphoric force and mind-boggling weirdness. Renaissance In Extremis is a bold, bullish and belligerent statement of creative intent: metal’s dark spirit reborn in an explosion of bright ideas and inspirational fury.

Renaissance In Extremis” will be released on the following formats:

SHINee SURPRISE VACATION

shinee

barraHello darling, how you can see today I’m sharing a lot of news. This  is becouse in these week I didn’t had much time.
Usually I don’t share news about K-pop becouse people here don’t seems interested in. But, anyway sometime I try.

This news is about SHINee and their new DVD, SHINee SURPRISE VACATION. I’ve found only a limited ediction of this.  And I’ve see that only few copies remain.

It’s a DVD box set wich contains six discs.  It features SHINee’s travel footage in UK, Japan, Switzerland, and Thailand plus making-of film. It cames with a pouch.

Salve cari, come potete vedere oggi sto condividendo molte notizie. Questo perché in queste settimane non ho avuto molto tempo.
Di solito non tratto del k-pop qui, perché mi è sembrato che le persone non ne siano molto interessate. In ogni caso qualche volta faccio un tentativo.

Questa notizia riguarda gli SHINee e il loro nuovo DVD, SHINee SURPRISE VACATION. Ho trovato soltanto l’edizione limitata di questo.  E sembrano essere rimaste solo poche copie.

Si tratta di un cofanetto di sei DVD che mostra degli scatti del viaggio in UK , Giappone, Svizzera, e Tailandia, più il dietro le quinte del film. In allegato c’è un borsello.
