NEKROHOWL: No Clean Singing Streaming A New Track of Bangladeshi Old School Death Metal Trio

NEKROHOWL, an entity that has already marked themselves as a formidable force in the South Asian metal scene with their deadliest sound and intense live annihilation. Their upcoming debut EP "Epitome of Morbid" is a must a listen for those -- who love putrid form of death metal music.

No Clean Singing exclusively Streamed the second track "Blasphemy Still Unnamed", which can be found at this location.

“This song has a lot going for it. For most of its duration, it flies like a bat out of hell. Its sheer speed and ferocity give the band a chance to display impressive technical skills as well as extreme viciousness, not only in the accelerated savagery of the frenzied riffs but also in the barrage of merciless drum battering. The roaring vocals are convincingly monstrous as well.” — No Clean Singing

Originally started as a death metal quartet in the crypt of Dhaka, Bangladesh, NEKROHOWL was formed a year ago by the members of acclaimed local acts like Abominable Carnivore, Dissector, Enmachined and Homicide. A death evoking, rotten sounding rehearsal demo was soon manifested, which was followed by an oversea live annihilation on the other side of the Bengal — Kolkata, India. With the vilest form of sound and high-powered live performances, they have marked their place as a formidable force in the realm of South Asian extreme metal music.

Earlier in the year, the band encountered with lineup issues, when the vocalist and drummer had to left the band, but that did not stop NEKROHOWL from blazing fiercely; Warmonger (Warhound, Ex: Orator) as a replacement in the position of drum-hammering and Obliterator taking over the charge of vocal duty turned them as a power trio, and this incident marks a significant step forward for the band. Climbing to the peak of their powers with this monstrous lineup, the bestial trio embarked on a mini-tour, named as “Agonize and Excruciate Tour 2017”, to support Japanese death metal maestro Desecravity at their Dhaka, Kolkata and Shilong live dates.

Debut EP “Epitome of Morbid” is undeniably the most anticipating metal release from the country. With 05 tracks (including an intro), clocking in at around 20 minutes, the EP incorporates the captivating intricacy of Suffocation, sheer gruesomeness of Autopsy, belligerent tone of Immolation, vitriolic intensity of Morbid Angel, demon invoking power of Hellhammer, and malefic darkness of Dead Congregation. The song structures clearly demonstrate the members’ sole object of the exercise, and it is nothing but to play the hard-hearted form of death metal music. Whereas many contemporary old school rooted extreme metal bands from the subcontinent fail to sustain the primitive atmosphere because of the production, NEKROHOWLhas cautiously maintained that dark, rotten vibe of old school death metal within these tracks.

Limited number of copies of the EP will be released locally in digipak format, which will be followed by cassette issue from Malaysian label Diabolicurst Productions, and cd, cassette and vinyl release from American label Slaugherhouse Records. An EP launching gig will take place in Dhaka during the local digipak release date on 30thSeptember, 2017.

DARK WATERS END Exclusive Stream: "Immortal Consciousness"

Philadelphia's DARK WATERS END have partnered with Toilet ov Hell for the premiere of "Immortal Consciousness," a track from forthcoming album Submersion. Stream it at: http://www.toiletovhell.com/premiere-dark-waters-end-immortal-consciousness/

Submersion will see the light of day on October 7. Visit the following link to pre-order the album: http://www.darkwatersend.bigcartel.com/product/dark-waters-end-submersion

The band previously released the official lyric video for "Congenital Vice," which is available at https://youtu.be/wJ79RyJGWAE. The single is also streaming on Bandcamp. While you're at it, make sure to check out Decibel's exclusive stream of "Up The Dose" at this location

DARK WATERS END takes progressive death metal to a level that makes you think twice about nodding your head in standard timing. This eclectic group of musicians teeter on the boundary of what many in the Philadelphia area describe as technical metal, but without the need for a scientific calculator. Their music consists of an all-embracing range of metal, from a variety of influences to create a very dynamic and progressive sound. 

DARK WATERS END has a sound that can range from beautifully-haunting to terrifying in a matter of minutes. Influences from bands such as Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and The Faceless inspire the band to approach metal from all angles and can be aggressive, peaceful, and brutal all within a single song. Additionally, influences from bands such as The Contortionist and Between the Buried and Me have paved the way for the band to incorporate atypical melodies and provide a robust blend of progressive metal.

"The influences from Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Candiria and Between the Buried and Me are all still there, but the final product is more refined and distinctly Dark Waters End."
- Decibel Magazine

"Dark Waters End are arguably what happens when a generation raised on Candiria and Cannibal Corpse gets their radical shit together."
- Metal Hammer

"The deep ocean is a terrifying place, and Dark Waters End channel its essence into some truly nasty prog death."
- Toilet ov Hell

"Sure to win over fans of challenging groove laden metal."
- All About The Rock

"DWE taps into very different vessels, and surprises in every song with great variety."
- Lords of Metal

The band began its current formation in 2012 with vocalist John William, guitarist Elijah Masiko, drummer Ian McGarry and bassist Chris Williams. It's at this time that the band truly developed and defined their sound. In 2014 lead-guitarist Ian Wright joined the band, bringing a most sought after dynamic. Since then the band has recorded their debut EP "Rat King" released in early 2016, and most recently completed their first and much anticipated full-length Submersion.

The hard work, dedication, and determination of DARK WATERS END has allowed them to share the stage with acts such as Candiria, Car Bomb, Psyopus and Ion Dissonance.
