More Heavy Metal Music From Ceremony Of Silence, West Of Hell, Chevalier and Smoulder

As we begin April, there are some new exciting heavy metal releases to put on your radar. At the beginning of the month, we get the debut release from the Slovakian band, Ceremony Of Silence. This is the brainchild of guitarist Vilozof and drummer Svjatogor, who have both made a name for themselves in the Slovakian underground metal scene. The duo's new album titled "Outis" will be released on April 5th through Willowtip Records and contains seven, aggressive, hard-hitting juggernauts, beginning with the growls of "Invocation Of The Silent Eye." The band push their music to the limits with the shear force of "Trance Of Void," before slowing down for the dark melody of "Upon The Shores Of Death." Ceremony Of Silence finish up their new album with shredding guitar riffs of "Arising Of No Man" and the bashing, neck-breaking rhythm of "Into The Obscure Light." To find out more about Ceremony Of Silence and their latest release "Outis," please visit the band's Facebook page at facebook.com/ceremonyofsilence.

Also arriving on April 5th, is the self-released sophomore effort from the independent Canadian metal band, West Of Hell. Their new album titled "Blood Of The Infidel," features seven tracks, beginning with the sonic blast of chugging guitars on "Hammer And Hand." Next, they speed the tempo up even more with the intense speed of "Chrome Eternal" and "Infidels." West Of Hell deliver a more progressive metal sound on the nearly nine-minute epic "Dying Tomorrow," before wrapping up their new album with the aggressive nature of "The Dark Turn" and the more technical melody of "Mankind Commands." West Of Hell will also be hitting the road in April for a month-long tour of Canada. To find out more about West Of Hell and their latest release "Blood Of The Infidel," please visit westofhell.ca .

As we head toward the end of the month, we get the debut album from the Finnish thrash metal band, Chevalier. Their new album titled "Destiny Calls" will arrive on April 26th, through the Gates Of Hell label and features ten tracks, beginning with a short introduction, before the flood gates open. Chevalier look to blow you away with their speed, as they blast through the opening song "The Immurment" at a neck-breaking pace. They also showcase a more progressive side to their music with the back-to-back epic pieces "The Curse Of The Dead Star" and "Road Of Light." Once again, Chevalier look to blow you away with the quick pace of "Stormbringer," before finishing their new album with the intense pounding rhythm of "A Warrior's Call" and a short "Outro" to close the album.

Last, but not least, we arrive at the full-length debut album from Cruz Del Sur artist, Smoulder. Their new album titled "Times Of Obscene Evil And Wild Daring" features six tracks that will make you an instant fan of this power metal band. The album begins with the chugging guitars and battle cry of "Ilian of Garathorm" and "The Sword Woman." Smoulder speed up the intense pace of "Bastard Steel," before closing out their new album with the nine-minute doom metal epic "Black God's Kiss."
