The Colombian-based symphonic black metalers NEPHESH are proud to announce that they have just signed a deal with American record label NOKTERNAL HEMIZPHEAR (www.nhmetal.com). Nephesh concocts a passionate metal fury encased within symphonic tragedies of epic proportions. “Hated by this World” is the hard-driving, soul-lacerating follow-up EP to their smashing debut full-length “Inter Armas Silent Leges” that was released on Nokternal Hemizphear in 2009. Released in two versions, the first release of the “Hated by this World” EP was unleashed at Nordic Fest in Oslo, Norway when the band played abroad on a mini world tour in late 2010. In early 2011, the USA version of the EP will be created with the orchestral version of “Lost Race” as the exclusive bonus track and altered artwork within the packaging.

In the meantime, chomp on the track “Lost Race” available for streaming at the official Nephesh and Nokternal Hemizphear MySpace pages…
The track listing is as follows:

1. The Last Judgment

  1. Endless Destruction
  2. Reborn (Instrumental)
  3. Lost Race
  4. Lost Race (Orchestral Version)*

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
