BOREAL HYMN Releases Demo EP, ‘TUNDRA’

tundrapromo portraitSMALL

Dark Tribal Folk Metal duo BOREAL HYMN has released their debut, 4 track demo entitled “Tundra.”

Player

TUNDRA is the culmination of a lot of experimentation and trial and error. We knew what we wanted BOREAL HYMN to feel like, but the tough part was writing a piece of music that embodied that feeling. After chipping away at the demo for several months, I feel like we’ve landed on something that expresses exactly what we wanted to express. We want a sound that is both ancient and relevant. It isn’t about role playing or pretending to live in the iron age; it’s about unearthing traditions, feelings, and philosophies that we feel are undervalued in modern life.” – Colby Hink

Hellbound Hearts was started in Yorkshire in 2011 by singer / bassist Danny and after the usual and numerous ep’s, line up changes and growing pains of any new band, Hellbound Hearts truly found their sound and hit their stride with the acclaimed 2016 debut album Film Noir mixing pop rock sensibilities with dark lyrical content and gothic metal tinged guitars.

Danny, drummer Lee and guitarists Craig and Nathan have taken this ethos even further, crafting a melodic, modern, dark and unique sound for their upcoming 2019 ep release.

While being one of only a few bands around who can actually claim they sound like no one else, comparisons can be drawn to the likes of NirvanaTherapyFoo FightersType O Negative, and Paradise Lost, among others.

In Hollywood, Ca, a dark alleyway forbodes, connecting Studio 56 and the Record Plant. Music legends of today and yesterday from Elvis, Marilyn Monroe and Mel Torme holed themselves into these studios, all of them making records in the same one hundred yard radius. And, like many stories of legend, the lost replaced the heroes, the junkies replaced the giants, and Satan replaced Sinatra. In the middle, another entryway leads to DeadZone Sound Design. Home of Dead Girls Corp. for the past 10 years. Imagine Depeche Mode with a beat box through a distortion pedal , playing ultra pop at a Satanic disco. Dave Teague burns a hypnotic guitar straight into the psyche. Bruce Miyaki churns the vulgarity within the soul on his bass. Then Mel Mcfail hammers the earth like a sledge , forcing trauma to the body. And all of this abrasion is honed and torqued by the pop-evil song crafting of Toddy T..With the old millennium come and gone, the real Apocalyptic party is ready to begin….

THE SIXTH CHAMBER Releases Official Music Video for “Entrance to the Cold Waste” Featuring STANTON LAVEY & MAHAFSOUN

6CETTCWEPCOVERHIRESCROPPED

Gothic Metal Band THE SIXTH CHAMBER has released the official music video for “Entrance to the Cold Waste.” Filmed in the wastelands of Death Valley, CA, “Entrance to the Cold Waste” features STANTON LAVEY (grandson of Church of Satan founder / Satanic Bible author ANTON LAVEY, whose character featured prominently in this season’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY) and belly dancing by MAHAFSOUN.

With ‘Entrance to the Cold Waste’, we sought to create a portal of escape from the drab norms of daily reality we tend to become trapped in and provide passageway to a nightmare realm of sublime dreamscapes,” says Rahne Pistor, Sixth Chamber lead vocalist and founder. “I wanted to create a world as it exists within my deeper consciousness rather than as it seems in the confines of the waking world.” – Rahne Pistor

Behold the ancient rites of unspeakable black magic mystic horror!

Mythical Los Angeles gothic doom proto-metal mysterians The Sixth Chamber have completed a new single and music video nightmare trip – shot in the vast, tortured wastelands of Death Valley, California. Part Lovecraft and part Pasolini, the sonic and visual dream quest stars gothic metal bellydance YouTube sensation Mahafsoun as well as Stanton Lavey (grandson of Church of Satan founder/Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey) who aptly plays the role of a crude, heathen elder god. Directed by Constantin Werner.

THE SIXTH CHAMBER is a library in hell where all the world’s darkest secrets are kept in neatly arranged volumes on shelves. Band leader Rahne Pistor came up with the concept in 2001 inspired by the writings of 18th century mystic William Blake. Since that time the band has accumulated a long and storied recording legacy with gothic, metal, experimental, blues, psychedelic, fantasy/horror soundtrack and other musical and poetic influences evident in their sound. Themes generally focus on the mythic, mystic and phantasmic.

STANTON LAVEY is the grandson of Church of Satan founder and Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey. The resemblance to his iconic grandfather is uncanny. Stanton spends his time promoting Anton Lavey’s legacy and related principles of the Laveyan Satanist philosophy.

MAHAFSOUN, a Persian belly dancer and model, aptly describes herself as an escapist. She became a YouTube sensation as an early adopter of gothic metal bellydance and has shared the stage belly dancing live with revered metal acts including Moonspell, Epica and Ex Deo. Her style is mired in dark fantasy art, and she is currently one of the most easily recognizable Gothic fashion models of today.

I can’t believe that it’s been 20 years since I started this band back in 1997.
I couldn’t be more excited to share this unique package, along with the true / uncensored story of how it all begin.
This was something that only a small community of people in NYC were able to share with us, back in the day.
To be able to bring this to our fans all across the world 20 years later is surreal for me..
I designed the entire package myself and I went to great lengths to create something that our Die Hard fans would greatly appreciate.
