Italian Visionary Sludge Rockers Void Of Sleep have not only just finished work on their debut album, they have also inked their first contract with Aural Music Group.
The band has been formed in 2010 and their music is a blend of sludge, psychedelic, stoner and progressive sound where epic rhythms melt with doom slowdowns, complex time signatures and “musical storms”.
After a first Self-Produced EP in 2011, the four hit again the Studio73 during the summer of 2012 to record the first full-length called “Tales between Reality and Madness” scheduled to hit stores in January 2013 through Aural Music.
VOID OF SLEEP frontman Burdo had this to say about the new contract:
“Ladies and Gents, Void of Sleep are proud to announce that they had officially signed with Aural Music their first worldwide deal. The band, in the behalf of Burdo, Gale, Paso and Allo are absolutely on fire and they’re ready to spread the riff all over the world with the upcoming release of their first full length album in early 2013.”

UK Doomsters The Prophecy have revealed the cover art and track listing for their new album, entitled “Salvation”, due on January 21 via Code666 records. The follow-up to 2009’s “Into the Light” was produced and mixed by Greg Chandler (Esoteric) at Priory Studio and mastered by James Plotkin (Sunn O))), ISIS and Pelican).
“Salvation” track listing:
frontman Matt Lawson commented on the cover artwork: “The album cover is a departure from the style of the last three albums, but when Code666 announced we could package the disc in glorious digi-pak with a 12 page booklet we couldnt help but go to town a little. The design fits the music perfectly and really captures the feel of the album. Sam at Dose Productions has done a fabulous job with the art and layout making this a product you’ll really want to own.”
RAIN on Tour!
The italian hard rockers RAIN are back on the road with the second part of ‘”XXX TOUR” to promote the band’s last studio work.
The uniqueness and novelty of this second part, along with the new lineup, will be the mix of Electric and Unplugged shows.
Eibon la Furies presents “The Immoral Compass” , the new album scheduled on code666 at the beginning of 2013.
Frontman Lord Eibon commented on the album: “Worship no one, bow to none. No gods exist here. You are your own compass (moral, amoral or immoral). The balance of greatness can be tipped either way. Ascending through darkness is our only way. The new Eibon la Furies album, The Immoral Compass, is a concentrated look at humanity through our own occult lens of avant-garde dark rock and black metal fusion.”
