Slovenian Black Metal duo SNØGG has just self-released their debut album "Chhinnamasta" on CD yesterday. Guitarist, bassist, keyboardist and vocalist Ulv had this to say about the album: ""Chhinnamasta" is the next step in the ever evolving journey of SNØGG. This time our experiments took us into more Post-Metal spheres, while the lyrics discuss the lust and power of modern human beings, their ability to overcome difficulties that they face on a regular basis, and the way they internalize self-restrictions to move forward. The title "Chinnamasta" does not depict the story of the self-decapitated Hindu goddess, but we borrowed concepts from other religions and stories outside Hinduism to illustrate Chhinnamasta." A full album stream is available at this location. More SNØGG info at www.facebook.com/snoggband

UK Thrashers ACID REIGN will release their third full length via Dissonance Records this September. Vocalist Howard Smith had this to say: “For our first album in 29 years it was vitally important that we find the right home and I feel we have. From the very first contact it was obvious that the Dissonance team not only had an overwhelming enthusiasm for what we have recorded but the intelligence and infrastructure to deliver. Many involved are the same people I dealt with when curating "The Apple Core Archives" in 2014 which was a hassle free experience, so we are going to release a four disc retrospective ACID REIGN Anthology package after the new album comes out cos I found some more old stuff and our two singles need a CD home. Who knows you may even see some vinyl reissues too! We cannot wait to unleash this beast and hit the road in support of it, once it’s out it will be two years since we started writing and a year since we recorded it. No one is as keen as us for you all to hear the results. Over the next few months we’ll be drip feeding you all information, we have so many plans for really cool things that we think you are all going to love. Stay tuned.” For more info and regular updates follow ACID REIGN at www.facebook.com/acid.reign.thrash
