Greek Thrashers Biotoxic Warfare Unleash New Single From 'Lobotomized'

In order to whet appetites, Biotoxic Warfare have released a single from their upcoming album ‘Lobotomized’ which is released this coming Monday 19th January via Slaney Records. The track, also named ‘Lobotomized’ is a meaty introduction to the band’s debut full-length release.

Since their formation little over two years ago and having already supported the likes of Enforcer and Suicidal Angels and released one highly lauded EP, ‘Baptized in Blood and Greed’ [2013], Biotoxic Warfare are emerging from the Greek underbelly as a force to be reckoned with. This is demonstrated in full on their debut album release, ‘Lobotomized’.

‘Lobotomized’ is a blistering aural attack from the start and does not let up the onslaught through the album’s eight tracks. Talking of the album, the band had this to say -

“The sound of ‘Lobotomized’ is mostly influenced by the European Thrash Metal scene (Kreator, Sodom) with a mix of old school American Death Metal (Obituary, Death, Morbid Angel). It also combines dark melodies, shredding guitar solos, technical riffing and many well-combined fragments of the whole extreme metal spectrum.

“Lyrically the album opposes strictly to any religious fanatics and cults who use their lies to control every human being with ambitions to reign upon arrogance and false reality created by religions worldwide since the dawn of time. The lyrics call the people to rise against their oppressors, stand out for what they believe and break the chains that bond both mind and soul.”

And this is what the press is saying –

“If ‘Lobotomized’ is a sign for all the good albums that are to come in 2015, then I cannot fucking wait…an amazing start to the year’s metal releases.” 10/10 Metal Addicts



The band recorded the album at their home studio and went on to have it mixed and mastered by Vaggelis Theodorakis (Revolted Masses). ‘Lobotomized’’s artwork, designed by Roberto Toderico, encapsulates the messages from within the album. The band describe the artwork as depicting “the massive lobotomy and brain washing that terrorizes our society by any organized religion party, and aims to a global propaganda in order to control and twist the freedom of thinking and acting for yourself.”

Free Music: Irish Tech Metallers Vile Regression Release 'Empires'

Yes, you did read it right, Irish tech metallers Vile Regression have just announced the release of their brand new record 'Empires' and it's free for all.

Guitarist Brian Brady comments: "We've been blown away by the positive feedback we have received from the online metal community and printed metal press for 'Empires'. The reviews have been incredibly positive and at this stage we want as many people to hear the record as possible! On top of this, the EP has already become available to download on various blogs and torrent sites, so rather than metal fans downloading a poor quality version, we want them to be able to download a full quality release of 'Empires', along with the artwork, lyrics and be able to share the download link with their friends. We hope people will enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it and look forward to seeing many of you on the road in 2015. Happy Christmas from Vile Regression!"


"...progressive death metal that easily sits alongside the output from most of today's big extreme metal names."
Metal Hammer

"The talent coming out of Ireland has been nothing short of staggering, and this Dublin-based crew are up there with the best of them."
Zero Tolerance

"Another blistering metal band from the Emerald Isle that could have a big future."
Powerplay Magazine

Formed from the ashes of Irish extreme metal outfit Vistor Q; Vile Regression hit the scene in 2010 and released debut record ‘The Pattern Evolves’ in 2011 via Casket Music.

After sharing stages with prolific heavyweights such as Dyscarnate, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Unearth Vile Regression built a reputation as a tight and energetic new addition to the extreme metal underground and 2013 saw the band head back to the studio to record a new installment… ‘Empires’.

'Empires' was recorded at Trackmix Studio in Dublin, Ireland with producer Michael Richards and features 7 tracks of extreme metal; technical, but not technical for the sake of it, and songs which would bode well on the ears of those with a penchant for progressive metal on the darker and heavier end. The record was officially released on 21st July 2014.
