The mighty Jalometalli Open Air Metal festival strikes back once again with a killer line-up to maintain its metallic lofty status on the Finnish festival map. The festival is known for relying on an old school metal approach offering traditional metal to extreme metal with classic metal to the extreme black metal. The festival also paid attention to young rising and local bands who played the small third stage. That was unique and thankfully most of the bands sounded killer. The Metal Rules team hit the grounds of Oulu to see several absolutely killer bands. The whole Jalometalli as a festival is so unique and one of kind that anyone reading this article should take a glance at the offering of the festival. Here is a brief article on the fest.

THE DEVIL’S BLOOD To Unveil The Thousandfold Epicentre Video Teaser Series

November 30th, 2011

Occult rock legion THE DEVIL’S BLOOD will be releasing a series of video teasers leading up to the release of their upcoming full-length, The Thousandfold Epicentre. Each week a new teaser will be viewable via the band’s official Metal Blade landing page. To start, check out the art teaser clip for the title track at THIS LOCATION.

Metal Blade Records recently announced its union with the eclectic rock ensemble and will unleash The Thousandfold Epicentre in North America on January 17, 2012. The record offers up 11 tracks produced with the help of Pieter Kloos at Void Studios (Eindhoven, The Netherlands).The myriad of influences, both artistically and spiritually, that creates the overall aesthetic of THE DEVIL’S BLOOD takes the listener into a labyrinth of wondrous amazement and dark realization, using the tradition of rock ‘n’ roll music as being a mouthpiece for the influence of The Devil to evoke a powerful, sensual and energetic mixture of Musical Theatre and Ritual Practice. Using the power of their written material, which traditionally holds common ground with, for example, ’70s hard rock and 60s psychedelia, as a stepping stone, the band moves into complex improvisational drifts that drive, clash, shake and force their way into the subconscious of the listeners while at the same time opening up their senses with the use of fire, blood, incense and other ritualistic ingredients.

About the band:
“The Devil’s Blood are pleased to announce the conception of a new Litter to be cast upon the sacrificial flames of the bull-headed God that resides on the plane of Gehenna. Eleven new children shall pass through His flames to become reborn in Chaos when the eleventh of November comes to pass in this foul year of their lord, two thousand and eleven. We have taken 11 months to write and two months to record these monsters and to prepare, attach and inscribe the appropriate sigils, ornaments, chimes and bells upon these young-lings before releasing their serpentine malignity upon the world…”
SL/TDB/A-O The Devil’s Blood’s founder and leader

The Devil’s Blood MMXI:
The myriad of influences, both artistically and spiritually, that creates the overall aesthetic of The Devil’s Blood takes the listener into a labyrinth of wondrous amazement and dark realization. Using the tradition of rock ‘n’ roll music as being a mouthpiece for the influence of The Devil to evoke a powerful, sensual and energetic mixture of Musical Theatre and Ritual Practice.

Using the power of their written material, which traditionally holds common ground with, for example, 70s hard rock and 60s psychedelia among many others, as a steppingstone from which the band moves into complex improvisational drifts that drive, clash, shake and force their way into the subconscious of the listeners while at the same time opening up their senses with the use of fire, blood, incense and other ritualistic ingredients.

The Devil’s Blood uses these ingredients in their Theatrical Presentations as focal points through which the sonic worship of Death, Chaos and the Devil is projected. To instigate certain rebellious notions, alive deep within the dark heart of humanity, they seek to spill forth the waters of the River of The Devil’s Blood so that it in turn might instigate the spark of the inner Divine flame, that it might speak of the inner potential and power of the ones confronted with its glory, that it might, in whatever small or grand fashion, add to the growing forces of the infernal dominion and thereby to the impetus that shall lead to the end of all things.

“The Devil’s Blood is a dedication to principles and principals more ancient than Time, a branch of a tree greater than the World, an exclamation of both the profound and the profane. The Devil’s Blood has always been one of the many vessels through which the Light of the Devil shines upon the darkness of the world and shall always be the possible entrance to a path walked alone. But only for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. This path starts not in understanding but in confusion.

The Devil’s Blood have proven time and time again to be a completely self reliant and un-tethered entity; we hold no allegiance with anyone, not even internally. We do not belong to any scene and refuse to be the face of any kind of movement or organization. The Devil’s Blood is quite simply not of this world and holds no ties to it. We shall disappear as suddenly as we came when the time of the completion of our founding goals has been achieved. What these are is not known, not even to us. Without fear or hesitation we cast upon the fire our children for Moloch! Hail Satan!” SL/TDB/A-O The Devil’s Blood’s founder and leader

Accolades:
Rituals performed around the world with acts as Watain, Pentagram, Root, Venom, Tryptikon, and many more…

The Devil’s Blood has performed at venues and festivals such as:
The Camden Underworld, London
K17, Berlin
The Webster Hall, New York City
The MacEwan Hall, Calgary
Roadburn
Wacken Open Air
Hole In The Sky
