Find bellow Bölzer’s official statement and the complete routing of the Void Dancers MMXIX tour with Dodheimsgard, Bölzer, Blaze Of Perdition and Matterhorn.

We have been far from idle these past few years, having followed ‘Hero’ and his predecessors to many corners of the world, heeding the call. Furthermore, we have also quietly initiated a number of humble steps towards greater independence by establishing our own label Lightning & Sons, whilst entering an inspiring working relationship with the phenomenal individuals at AISA Music, who now handle all our distribution and web store logistics worldwide. Thank you Simon, Mélanie, Luis and team for your enthusiastic belief in this project!

It is then with joy and sated anticipation that we may grant our fifth offering ‘Lese Majesty’ international release on November 29th 2019 and present those ears willing with a song fresh from the forge.

In gratitude,

/// BLZR

Nordjevel and D-19 join forces!

Norwegian black metal mob Nordjevel teams up with District 19 for exclusive European bookings!

Nordjevel was started in the unholy year of 2015 by Doedsadmiral. He had a talk with Widigs (Marduk) and later on with Nord about this project and decided to start making music together. Bass player DzeptiCunt (ex-Ragnarok) joined forces late 2015 and became an important asset to the line-up. After a quick break in the autumn of 2017, Widigs left the band to focus on Marduk. Valla (Vredehammer, ex-Abbath) joined on guitar and became a permanent member. During the recording process of the bands second album, Nordjevel parted ways with Nord. Destructhor (ex-Morbid Angel, Myrkskog) joined as a permanent member together with Dominator (ex-Dark Funeral) during fall 2018.

Dawn of Disease signs with District 19

German death metal tank DAWN OF DISEASE have signed with District 19 for exclusive European bookings.

Since their new formation in 2009 DAWN OF DISEASE have made their way to the top as heavy weights of Germany’s Death Metal scene. With “Legends Of Brutality” (2010), “Crypts Of The Unrotten” (2012) and “Worship The Grave” (2016) they set a new standard for the expanding scene influenced by Swedish Death Metal without neglecting modern aspects in their music. Their following opus “Ascension Gate” (2017) marks an important cornerstone in the constant development of the band with enthralling guitar work, ravishing management of melodies and brilliant tone. A hurricane of blastbeat drumming and the gigantic growling of singer Tomasz spark a fire that forges their spirit. Not for nothing the album convinced both fans and press and even made it to #46 of the official German music charts.

Through the years DAWN OF DISEASE played numerous live shows on festivals (Wacken Open Air, Hellfest, Summer Breeze, Rockharz, Party.San, Rock Hard Festival, Metalfest, Extremefest, Metal On The Hill and many more) and supported bands like Behemoth, Amon Amarth, At The Gates or Arch Enemy. Playing live is their central passion what they show on each of their intense and thrilling shows.


To sweeten your start into the new working week, we are happy to present the new intermediate line-up. The tastes in Metal are wonderfully different, even if they have a lot in common: Headbanging (a dance form, as Wikipedia describes it) is just one example among many. Whether you enjoy the quieter sounds of KATATONIA or PARADISE LOST and slowly bounce your head with it or the Blackmetal faction SATYRICON and DARVAZA do the honours and rotate your neck with perceived 50Hz is up to you. Various necks and heads will look forward to variety.

With a clenched hand to the sky, fans of heavy metal can also look forward to a portion of testosterone and concentrated power listening to GRAND MAGUS. For those who like to feel the vibe of the good old Led Zeppelin check out The VINTAGE CARAVAN.

Death uber alles is CARNATION and DEATHRITE, no stone can stay on the other and we expect continuous moshpits and merciless destruction. That can top only fucking DEMOLITION fucking HAMMER fucking fuck.

With INSANITY ALERT and TANKARD we also took something with the Thrash faction among you. At the “Run to the pit”, there should be enough time to get some beer.

So we hope to have met every one of your preferences so far, if not: No fear yet is not all days evening and in September it goes on. Until then, keep “moving your head forwards and backwards, sideways, in a circle or in a figure of eight to the beat of the music”, as Wikipedia describes headbanging.
