In the Fields They Bled
Release date: May 12th, 2015
Label: Dark Horizon Records
They call their music "dark death metal" and after hearing you will see why. The band seeks a death metal that is obscurantist in nature and versatile in skills. Fortunately, you don't have to trust anyone's word about this band because you can hear the complete album at the link below. Here is some official information about this band from Indiana, U.S.
HOLOCAUSTUM was formed in the winter of 2009 by Vocalist Shawna Silvers, Guitarist John Newton, Bassist Dave Warner and Lead Guitarist Charlie Baughman. HOLOCAUSTUM is an old styled blackened death metal band shining with the influence of many bands from the early 90’s. HOLOCAUSTUM incorporate brutal and sometimes melodic death metal with the ferocity of black metal, creating an atmosphere that is seldom captured in today’s underground “Metal Scene”. Their debut album “Crawling Through The Flames of Damnation” was released by Dark Horizon Records in the fall of 2011 and was received well through out the world. After playing shows in support of the album the band made a line up change and drummer Jeff Mhaghnuis was replaced for drummer Tomasz Pilasiewicz.. HOLOCAUSTUM are currently working on their second album “In The Fields They Bled” which will be released in May 12th 2015.
Holocaustum hold high the banner of old school Death Metal while merging an atmosphere of early 90's Black Metal on the new album "In The Fields They Bled". Unleashing eight ominous tracks of caustic Death Metal, Holocaustum present waves of memorable dark tone, pummeling female vocals, artillery blast drumming and piercing sophisticated guitar solos.
This vicious album was mastered by the legendary Dan Swanö (Bloodbath, Edge Of Sanity, Aeon, Hail Of Bullets) at Unisound Studio, and recorded/mixed by John Newton at DHR Studio with drums tracked at SOS Studios in Chicago by AKSMITH. "In The Fields They Bled" is an album that slays and will captivate the the most avid metalhead, leaving them wanting more. For fans of Autopsy, Behemoth, Bolt Thrower, Cannibal Corpse, Dark Funeral, Death, Deicide, Emperor, Goatwhore, God Dethroned, Grave, Immolation, Immortal, Incantation, Marduk, Morbid Angel, Obituary and Sinister...
Formed during the winter of 2009, HOLOCAUSTUM create their own style of dark death metal. Musically blurring the lines of numerous metal genres and influenced by the sound of many early 90’s death and black metal bands. HOLOCAUSTUM released their first studio album "Crawling Through The Flames of Damnation" in 2011 on Dark Horizon Records.
May 12, 2015 HOLOCAUSTUM offer their second studio album "In The Fields They Bled" on Dark Horizon Records / Horror Pain Gore Death Productions, which showcases a level of maturity in songwriting and production. Other high points are the sophisticated guitar solos of Charlie Baughman, the razor sharp rhythm guitar attack of John "Andy" Newton (Fog, Typhus, Morpheus Descends), the vicious, brutal, rip your soul to pieces vocals of Shawna Silvers, the relentless bass guitar attack of Dave Warner all combined intensely with the machine gun blast drumming of Tomasz Pilasiewicz (Disinter, Gorgasm, Warfather, Corphagy, Incessant Collapse).
