1914 – Sign With Napalm Records!
6. February 2019
Historic Blackened Death/Doom Metal From Ukraine
Ukrainian WWI experts 1914 join the Napalm Family! With their unique blackened death/doom metal sound, 1914 leads you back in one of the darkest chapters of the last century – they breathe The Great War!
Strongly influenced by genre pioneers like Bolt Thrower and Entombed, 1914 have already released two full length albums, Eschatology of War (2015) and The Blind Leading The Blind (2018), which making them one of the most talked about newer bands in the genre. From now on they are part of the Napalm roster!
1914 on the signing:
“We’re so excited to work with Napalm Records, the label we know very well and fully respect. We hope our cooperation will be really fruitful and awesome. 1914 want to tell the world about The Great War, about its horrors and the senselessness of war and murders. For us, the partnership with Napalm Records is a great chance to spread these ideas all over the globe, a chance to tell everyone that war is hell, that it’s only death, mud and fear, so fuck the wars!
Be sure, we are going to take full advantage of this chance. And for all those who consider our music as political, we can say ‘just go fuck yourself’ because the worst things to have ever happened with this world are religions, ideologies and their followers.

Darkwater – upcoming album
5. February 2019
Darkwater was formed in the western parts of Sweden in 2003 and their debut album „Calling The Earth To Witness“ was released in 2007 via Ulterium Records. The album was received very well around the world and the band’s perfect blend of melodic and progressive metal was something the scene was craving for, and the band quickly got a loyal following.
The band did their first US show in 2008 at the Bay Area Rock Fest together with Liquid Tension Experiment and Jeff Scott Soto. During 2009 the band parted ways with their bass player Karl Wassholm and welcomed Simon Andersson (ex. Pain of Salvation) as his replacement.
In 2010 Darkwater released their second album „Where Stories End“ which was mixed and mastered at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg. The album received excellent reviews and feedback, and the band played festivals like ProgPower USA, ProgPower Europe, Brainstorm Festival and more.
Darkwater are now back with their new album „Human“, and it surely won’t leave fans of melodic metal or progressive metal disappointed! The songs are heavier, more melodic and atmospheric than before and the band worked really hard on tweaking the ten songs and over 76 minutes of playing time into perfection. Jacob Hansen (Evergrey, Volbeat, Amaranthe) was chosen to mix and master the album and he did a fantastic job which resulted in the best sounding Darkwater album to date.
The lyrics of the album welcomes you into a world of you and me, how we affect the world around us and the struggles we deal with as humans.
Don’t miss out on „Human“, a perfect album for fans of melodic progressive metal and bands like Circus Maximus, Seventh Wonder and Evergrey!
