Dutch Blackened Metal masters ONHEIL today announces the recording of their next album ‘Storm is coming’. The band has just entered the studio together with producers Bart Hennephof (TEXTURES) and Yuma van Eekelen (EXIVIOUS, ex-PESTILENCE) to record the follow-up to their underground classic ‘Razor’. This new epos will again be released by German metal specialists CYCLONE EMPIRE.
ONHEIL is known for having three guitarists and the new set of songs take full advantage of this triple axe attack. “Because of this the album will also sound like a raging storm” vocalist/guitarist Amok comments. “But as there are many different kind of storms, definately do not expect one long blastbeat. We still play our diverse mix of Black, Thrash, Death and Heavy Metal.”
The band is aiming for a release in the fall.
A video of ‘Nemesis’ Light Fading’, one of their best known tracks from their previous album ‘Razor’ can be found here:
Onheil entered the metal scene in 1999 and released their first demo in that
same year. With another demo in 2002, a Mini CD on an small underground
label in 2003 and their rare but intense live shows the band grew their
reputation in the Dutch and Belgium underground. Unfortunately the band got
into some serious line-up problems in 2004/2005.
It took the band untill 2007 to get up to full speed again, forming a new
and steady line-up. The return was announced with a first music video and a
wide range of live shows with bands like VADER, MAYHEM, EMTOMBED and
BELPHEGOR. This caught the attention of German metal record label CYCLONE
EMPIRE releasing ONHEIL’s full-lenght album RAZOR in 2009.
RAZOR was received extremely well getting high ratings by the media almost
everywhere. With this succes ONHEIL was able to share the stage with
CANNIBAL CORPSE, AUTOPSY, WATAIN, THE DEVILS BLOOD, ASPHYX, NAPALM DEATH,
DYING FETUS, KRISIUN, ROTTING CHRIST and appeared on festivals such as
PARTY.SAN OPEN AIR, METAL MEAN, BRUTZ&BRAKEL FEST, OCCULTFEST, ZABBADUSCHER
and GAHLEN MOSHT OPEN AIR.
