Stream Reveal!'s new creature "Doppelherz" in all its lunatic entirety!

Rejoice all ye appreciators of the morbid rock lunacy called RVL!

Their fourth full-length, "Doppelherz", out ina  few days on Sepulchral Voice Records, is now streaming in all its deranged entirety after premiering earlier today on Decibel Magazine!

As much as we have been listening to Reveal! for quite a long time now, we have to be honest: we are literally SPEECHLESS in front the compelling and massive work they have been able to create here!, all songs have a distinct character yet they fit together so effortlessly when you stream the entire album from beginning to end, the atmosphere is thick and unnerving and their typical macabre and haunting yet heavy brand of death/thrash/black metal is all over the place and won't leave the listeners time to catch their breath.
Now, we understand what Crakk and Spine meant when they told us in our recent interview that "Doppelherz" is "a fucking new masterpiece album" and that "This is the best thing you're going to hear in probably the rest of your life... it is dark, morbid, menacing and eclectic even for RVL! standards, and their music has never sounded so confident and strong as it does on "Doppelherz".

RVL!'s own Crakk offered on Decibel Magazine a couple of advices about the listening experience:

“Shit to say about ze album:

1. Listen to Doppelherz at a very high volume to hear the textures; clearly, it’s absolutely worth it.

2. Give Doppelherz a few minutes of your time/attention without talking to yourself, with an open mind, etc.

3. Then, if you don’t like it — we just go our separate ways here, retarded one.

Anyway watch out, or I’ll suck your dick ‘boy' "

Well, after listening to the album, it sounds like we are not going separate ways at all, we are not going anywhere without this new creature in fact, we just want it in our lives and ears ALL THE TIME.

But enough words (for now...), press play and venture down the deranged rabbit hole that Reveal! have dug and see you among the hallucinating twist and turns that Doppelherz takes along the way!

Reveal!'s new album "Doppelherz" is out on December 10th, 2021 on Sepulchral Voice Records and pre-orders are now open for the vinyl edition and for the CD edition. Digital edition available on Bandcamp.

Maggot Heart special feature on MILK ME: interview and performance

Berlin based booking and promotion company MILK ME has premiered today the third episode on their series which features none other than our favourite power trio Maggot Heart!

The episode includes an interview with Linnéa, Olivia and Uno as well as their full performance streamed at Roadburn Redux earlier this year, with the addition of two new songs taken from Maggot Heart's latest release, the split EP with OKKLUTOKRATI: "No Song" and "Zero Hour Day".

The episode was filmed before Maggot Heart's appearance at this past year's special online edition of Roadburn, so the band talked a bit about their previous show at the festival, their participation in the online edition, the pre-pandemic times, and how they managed to turn the pause from touring due to the restrictions into a productive time focusing on the new material; they also discussed what they have been missing the most and how they have experienced the lockdown times. Linnéa also talked about the main theme which her latest track "No Song" is about and just generally how the city life often inspires her songwriting; on a different note she also speaks about interviewing Motörhead members for her Death beat zine (some issues still available at Rapid Eye Records by the way).
The interview also touches upon their tour with Voivod and how the band is an inspiration to them; how Maggot Heart include elements both from hard rock, post punk and other genres as well which makes the band rather difficult to define on these terms.

Maggot Heart's killer live performance is also part of MILK ME episode and can be streamed below: of course, the LOUDER, the BETTER!, as they certainly spared no energy and delivered a set of highly intense and visceral rock music.
Setlist as follows:

No Song
Second Class
Zero Hour Day
Gutter Feeling
