“Blood Libel”, the new video from Belgian melodic black metallers SAILLE, can be seen HERE. The clip was directed by Nicolas Daenens, who previously worked with the band on the “Plaigh Allais” video two years ago. The “Blood Libel” video was shot in the region known as “Meetjesland” in Belgium, both in the woods and in an abandoned church.

A synopsis of “Blood Libel” by SAILLE frontman Dennie Grondelaers: “The video of ‘Blood Libel’ is a somewhat liberal interpretation of the track on our latest album. It tells the story of William of Norwich, a young kid from the 12th century (°1132 – †1144) that was found murdered in cold blood. A murder for which the Jews were falsely accused.”

“Blood Libel” is the opening track of SAILLE’s second album, “Ritu”, which was released on January 18 via Code666 Records. The follow-up to 2011’s “Irreversible Decay” was produced and mixed by Reinier Schenk (GORATH, FLESHMOULD) and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll (1349, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN).

The French Electro-Metal band HERRSCHAFT is signing a new record deal with Code666 for their upcoming second full album.
Five years after the release of ‘Tesla’ the band finally breaks the silence and is ready to shake dancefloors as much as houndpits with their unique melting of extreme Metal and Electro/Indus genres. This new project, called “Les 12 Vertiges” is to be released in October 2013, and is about to dig once more into human’s mind, now in a more introspective, raw and perverse manner, driving two worlds altogether to their darkest sides.
Born in 2004, HERRSCHAFT has released two albums with Code666 (EP “Architects of the Humanicide” in 2006 and full album “Tesla” in 2008). During last years band members have focused on various musical experiences, studio, remix or live – Zoé now being part of french band The CNK – before setting back the focus to their core project with a new album and a fresh live line-up.”

Carrier Flux – an avant garde black metal project fronted by Jeff Phillips of Minneapolis – has signed a 3-album contract with Aural Music imprint Code666. Carrier Flux’s experimental approach to Black MMetal is a welcome addition to the Code666 family of artists.

Fans of dark, atmospheric metal will appreciate the intricate song structures & evocative qualities. the Visionary Artwork  has been created by the very talented artist Costin Chioreanu.

Carrier Flux was born in 1999 and released two albums so far: the dark & experimental Introspective Nightmare (2000, Self-released) and the brooding & philosophical In Waste (2002, Black Lotus Records). A multi-instrumentalist, Jeff Phillips plays guitar, bass, keyboards, vocals and programs drums for Carrier Flux, mixing & mastering the audio in his Minneapolis-based sound studio. Phillips has also been involved with a number of metal & dark ambient projects, including Cold Colours, Blood of the Earth and Vedisni.

You can stream the album preview here

The whole band together stated :
“We are happy to announce that Agharti has signed a deal with WormHoleDeath and that soon our full length album titled ‘CHANGE’ will be out worldwide. Working with WormHoleDeath was great – we clicked well from the very beginning and we know that together we will make great things. We’re very thankful for all the advice they gave us in the process of making the album and we can only hope for this cooperation to last because we have a lot more to give, share and create.”

A&R “Worm” stated: “Agharti are the typical band that every label dreams. We first met in Austria and they seemed to be so professional, humble and nice. Their songs were already well written and sounded great but they were also so eager to work with us on their music as they knew that they couldn’t be critical like us. For that reason me and Jonathan decided to invest in them and went to Zagreb to work in their practice room. We understood each other perfectly and they listened to everything we had to say, it has been great. We also cooperated closely on the choices to take for their final sound, image, cover, pictures and the result is under the light of the sun, just check it out. I am sure that you all will hear a lot about them since this is just the beginning of their career. Support this band, Agharti really deserve your attention.”

The Way Of Purity announced important cooperations for the new album, singer Marja Panic stated: ” We started writing our new album with our russian friend Stielas Storhett and our producer Jonathan Mazzeo … After this quite big work we felt that we wanted to give the final emotional touch with massive and continuous orchestrations so we asked Marianna Alfieri, known for being guitar player on Kirlian Camera, to work with us at that stage. She made such intense, passionate and incredibly tragical compositions to enhance our ideas. Now we are ready to fly to Romania to produce the vocals with Ageru Pamantului, former singer in Negura Bunget. After this last process we will enter Realsound and mathlab Studios in Italy to record the whole project. We still have to ask Christian Donaldson if he wants to mix this album but we have time during the tour, I am quite sure that we will be able to work with him again.”

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.”
