Nile’s Brian Kingsland Launches New Project Imperishable

Nile guitarist Brian Kingsland has launched a new project called Imperishable. The band, which also features bassist Alex Rush and drummer Tommy Harrison, will be releasing a new EP titled “Revelation In Purity” in the coming months. A teaser for the first single “Exclusion Continuum” can be found below. Kingsland commented:

“From a compositional standpoint, Imperishable’s mission is to deliver material that is dark and aggressive, yet, memorable. In my opinion, we achieved that objective with ‘Exclusion Continuum’.”

Artillery To Release New Single “The Last Journey” In October

Artillery will be releasing a new single titled “The Last Journey” on October 16. The track features former singers Flemming Rønsdorf and Søren Adamsen and it will be available digitally and on vinyl. A cover of Metallica’s “Trapped Under Ice” will also be released as a b-side. The group commented:

“When Artillery lost Morten [Stützer] in October last year, we decided to do a song to honor him. The song is called ‘The Last Journey’ and features former singers Søren Adamsen and Flemming Rønsdorf together with the rest of the band. A very epic song. The B side is also one of Morten’s and Artillery’s fave songs, a cover of Metallica’s ‘Trapped Under Ice’, which [Metallica] put the final touches on in our and Mercyful Fate’s rehearsal room, which they borrowed just before recording it in Sweet Silence in 1984.”

Act Of Denial (Soilwork, Testament, Etc.) Tease New Song “Controlled”

Act Of Denial, the band featuring Bjorn “Speed” Strid (Soilwork, etc.), Voi Cox (Koziak, Victim), Luger (Benighted, Koziak), Steve DiGiorgio (Testament), Kerim “Krimh” Lechner (Septicflesh), and John Lönnmyr (The Night Flight Orchestra), have posted a teaser for their new song “Controlled.” The full track, which features Bobby Koelble (ex-Death, etc.), will be released on September 20 and it is expected to appear on the band’s new album “Negative.”

Luger commented:

“We are currently in the studio finishing our debut album ‘Negative‘, including 10 songs. The finished songs are already in the process of mixing in Fredman Studio. Me and Voi decided not to focus on one genre so there will be tunes for every metal fan.

We’re doing this mostly for ourselves and the songs we write are the songs we love to listen at home, hoping they will reach also to other people, as to ourselves. We saw the reaction of the fans, after hearing our ‘Puzzle Heart‘, and we noticed that people like to hear some good old melodic death metal Gothenburg sound from the ’90s, in our days, so we wanted to add ‘Puzzle Heart‘ to our debut album.

Our second single ‘Controlled‘ will be unleashed on September 20th.

What is special in this single is that it features another special guest who contributed to this project, Death‘s Bobby Koelble, a guest who is well known to all metal fans. So stay tuned!”

Voi Cox added:

“We were always influenced by Swedish style and sound when we were kids that’s why it is a big honor to us to have Bjorn from Soilwork on this album, also Fredrik Nordström from Fredman Studio who basically invented that sound. We grew up listening to Soilwork, At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames and ofc Death, and that’s why we’re so excited that Steve is in this project, too.

So we are very much influenced by those bands but that doesn’t mean that our songs will sound like that and you will hear all that in our debut album.”
