GOREMENT, one of the finest yet obscurest death metal bands to ever emerge from the soil of Sweden, has signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records for the release of the band's entire recordings.
Within The Shadow Of Darkness - The Complete Recordings will be available exclusively at CM Distro as a 2CD and double vinyl (incl. the 2CD) in late September. Other than GOREMENT's discography compilation Darkness Of The Dead (released in 2004), the entire musical content included on the upcoming release has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes by Dan Swanö, who has already been in charge of the production of GOREMENT's demos and the Into Shadows EP. The result is mind-blowing: All songs sound fresh and incredibly massive without ever losing their original character. Dan Swanö comments:
"GOREMENT was one of the first bands outside my 'circle' that I ever recorded. The first demo was done on a 4 track portastudio, and I must say I am a bit surprised that the sound on that one is the coolest after the restoration!! GOREMENT could have been so much bigger if they had recorded the 1st album in a studio that would have given them the fat and 'gory' sound their music deserves. The songs are catchy and the musicianship high above average in the SweDeath scene at the time. It was a pure pleasure to revisit these recordings and carve out the best sonics possible."
Within The Shadow Of Darkness - The Complete Recordings includes the following tracks: CD1 My Ending Quest Vale Of Tears Human Relic The Memorial The Lost Breed Silent Hymn (For The Dead) Sea Of Silence Obsequies Of Mankind Darkness Of The Dead Into Shadows
All songs taken from the album The Ending Quest (1994)

The album is packed with everything you can ask for: liner notes by the band, a detailed interview done by Nicola Costantini (well-known for his books "Encyclopedia of Svensk Dödsmetall" and "The Return ... of Svensk Dödsmetall"), all lyrics, plus old flyers, photos, covers, fanzine interviews, etc.
Within The Shadow Of Darkness - The Complete Recordings is meant for all those true fans who either missed the chance to get a copy of the super rare album, demos or EP of the band-- or who don't have the money to pay a fortune for them at online auctions. It will also be released to stop the material from being bootlegged. This album is the one and only official release of GOREMENT to date.
We here at BAH Magazine we asked to get the word out about one of our favorite bands Alter Bridge and the single "My Champion", we were ready and willing to help! Our review of the album can been seen here: http://www.bahmagz.com/2016/10/album-review-alter-bridge-last-hero-4.html but I wanted the fans to let the world know what the song and Alter Bridge means to them and they have shared some amazing stories in tribute to "My Champion" please enjoy!
James Schmid from Waterloo, Ontorio. Alter Bridge provides everything you'd expect from a rock radio hit, while also giving die hard AB fans everything they expect from their beloved band with My Champion.
The song opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Def Leppards "Photograph" before hitting you square in the face with a "heavy for radio" sound that remains catchy without disappointing their "we like it fast and hard" fans. Their fan base, and music ranges in such a wide spectrum, it…
Cane Hill brought their Louisiana industrial sound to the
Chameleon Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on March 11th of 2017. It
was a Saturday night which meant the people of PA were ready to party! There is
always a party following this band. Their energetic sound ignites something in
people. As they took the stage as the opener of the “Let’s Get
Abducted Tour” the crowd was anxious. They played multiple songs from their
2016 summer released album “Smile” and to the bands surprise most of the folks
watching them were mouthing the words. As they recently got back from touring
overseas it has come to their attention that they are steadily gaining
popularity. The link below allows you to find where they will be next along
with album and merchandise purchasing info. Look out world, Cane Hill is coming
for you. http://wearecanehill.com/

version of the song "Metalingus" was originally recorded for ALTER BRIDGE's debut album One Day Remains. The song reached a
whole new audience when it was selected as the official entrance theme of WWE
superstar Edge back in 2004! Those years following, would have the song played
weekly on television right up until the day he retired in 2011 and is still
used every time he returns even until today. Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities is avai…
