Werte Mitstreiter! DEMON HEAD haben sich für ihr neues Prachtwerk "THUNDER ON THE FIELDS" in diesem Winter in einer abgeschiedenen Hütte einquartiert und dort einen Haufen echter Hits auf sparsamen, aber für echte Rock´n´Roller völlig ausreichenden 16 Spuren eingerockt.
Das Ergebnis strotzt nur so vor Herzblut, Kreativität und einem angenehmen Maß an Eigensinn.
Die Kopenhagener klingen tighter, immer noch ansprechend düster, aber zugleich abwechslungsreicher.
Oder anders formuliert:
DEMON HEAD hören sich an, als ob der Tourbus von Judas Priest in eine Whiskey-Bar knallt, in der The Doors und Neil Young gerade mit dem Teufel würfeln, während The Stooges auf ´ner kleinen Bühne in der Ecke Big Mama Thornton covern.
Lasst Euch begeistern!

FRIENDSHIP: Enigmatic Japanese Powerviolence Devastators To Release "I&II" On February 17 - First Track Streaming At No Clean Singing.  Dear Press Partners and Friends in the Media worldwide, San Francisco Bay Area darkness-obsessed DIY indie label Sentient Ruin Laboratories is extremely proud and honored to announce the release of I&II - a full-length release from elusive and mysterious experimental powerviolence terrorists Friendship (also known as the Friendship Collective).  I&II is a compilation of tracks previously self-released by the band as two separate EPs (the I EP and the II EP) now both condensed by Sentient Ruin into a single castigating long player of maximum auditive torture. The I&II compilation/album masterfully showcases the full extent of the band’s absurd formula: a maelstrom of bleak and punishing powerviolence/grind ferocity colliding with the suffocating weight of the most abject sludge-doom, and further enhanced by the iconic and completely mindless approach to extreme metal and punk which has always characterized Japanese bands as being the most absurd and unpredictable out there.
Hailing from the Chiba prefecture of western Japan, Friendship are one of the most vile, antagonist, and visionary grind/powerviolence acts to have ever emerged from The Land of the Rising Sun. Their absurdly devastating music comes together as a collapsing black hole that devours everything with maniacal ferocity, sparing nothing from the plain of existence. In perfect adherence to the tradition of Japanese extreme music where everything is always taken to ridiculous and mindless extremes, Friendship's music is like a chain reaction that can not be stopped - the devastating consequence of an uncontrolled nuclear fission of Japan's most praised and iconic musical extremities embracing the full scale auditive terror of legendary American powerviolence bands like Nails, Column of Heaven, Man Is The Bastard, Iron Lung, and Hatred Surge, and the tormented sludge dirges of masters like Swans, Godflesh, Corrupted, Noothgrush, and Dystopia. 
To be released on February 17 2017, Friendship's I&II comprises of twelve tracks of absolutely unfathomable violence, that will plunge the listener into an authentic plight for survival, as they desperately try to survive the utterly senseless chaos unleashed upon them by these Japanese masters of complete sonic terror. 
No Clean Singing  is now streaming the first song extrapolated from I&II called Bottomless Pit, saying that “what you’ll find on Friendship I & II is a combination of blighted, crushing, sludge-doom and vicious powerviolence and grind. It may sound like a schizophrenic combination, but you get the sense that Friendship have deployed these contrasting styles as one more particularly effective strategy in service of their main goal of unbalancing and terrorizing their listeners.”
Friendship's I&II tapes and digital products can now be pre-ordered on our

DE PROFUNDIS – ESCAPE FROM THE STUDIO! Hi – Chris and Paul here from Imperative PR with the latest news from DE PROFUNDIS.
The band are currently hard at work in the studio, crafting the follow up to 2015s acclaimed Kingdom Of The Blind album. However, when the offer came in for a prime slot at Plymouth Deathfest 2017 it was too good to turn down. So, the five piece will be making their escape from the studio and heading to the south coast, to join Desecration, Unfathomable Ruination, Verdelet, Warpath, Warcrab and a host of other death metal divisions for an all day assault on The Junction and The Underground in Plymouth.
The show is being presented by Zero Tolerance Magazine, the UK’s premiere extreme music publication and tickets are selling fast for this day of brutality.
Doors open at 3pm and the assault begins at 4pm.
The remaining tickets can be picked up from Seetickets:

Belgian black metal band SAILLE have teamed up with Metal Underground to stream their menacing new track "Genesis 11:1-9". The song is taken from the band's upcoming new album GNOSIS which will be released in March via Code666.
The band commented "Genesis 11:1-9 is about Babel, which, according to several sources, is the first city built by Noah's progeny after the Great Flood. Historical facts and whether or not you believe this is irrelevant. Within the context of 'Gnosis' it symbolizes mankind’s strife for greatness and how it is thwarted by a malevolent and jealous God. Knowledge and punishment, topics we'll explore further on our new album..."

HEATHER WASTELAND (Greece) - 'UNDER THE RED WOLFISH MOON'   EP    :   Genre - Folk Metal   :   For fans of - Primordial, Tenhi, Cruachan, Evol, Skyclad, Ancient Rites, Einherjer
Extremely passionate and devoid of any form of commercialism, the members of HEATHER WASTELAND originate from a small town in Greece. They eschew any form of shrieking or growling and prefer to let the music do all the talking. Inspired by bands like EVOL, SKYCLAD, PRIMORDIAL and CRUACHAN, they write about medieval stories and about ancient arts. Their music carries a special vibe that transports you to a different space. Music like this is rarely created in these times of ever-increasing extremity. Here's beauty that's still unsullied and pure, distilled into a form of music that bears most resemblance to the folkish ilk of metal. 
Track list: 
1. Tre Sverd 04:30
2. Under The Red Wolfish Moon 05:14
3. Venice (Barocco Veneziano) 04:11
4. Beltane (Intro) / Wicker Man 05:10
5. Under The Red Wolfish Moon (single edit) 04:45

INSANITY CULT - "OF DESPAIR AND SELF-DESTRUCTION"   :   Genre:  Black Metal
Insanity Cult were created back in 2011 by Έκ πτωτος (Lead Guitar) and Sacrilegious (Vocals) as a means of deeper inner expression and exploration. In 2012, Beleth (Drums) and Buer (Bass) joined the line up, while Vohamon (Rhythm Guitar) joined a year later in 2013. Throughout the years the band experimented intensly with their sound and ripened both musically and ideologically, thus new elements were added while some others were removed. The general sound however, was always based around melodies and feelings of melancholy, nihilism, hatred and despair. The first EP "Insanity Be My Kvlt", which was a raw rehearsal recording, was released in January of 2014, followed by the release of the debut full-length album "As My End Unfolds..." in April of 2015. Now, the band's second opus is to be released in 11th february of 2017.
Line-up: 
Έκ πτωτος (Lead Guitar)

Metal-Temple is now streaming "Flying Saucers in the Sky" from the forthcoming Greyhaze Records reissue of THE MIST'S 1989 Brazilian thrash classic PHANTASMAGORIA. Delve deeper at  this location.
Greyhaze Records is proud to announce the worldwide reissue of THE MIST's Phantasmagoria on February 3, 2017. The Brazilian Thrashers originally released this amazing album in 1989. Featuring the influential vocals of Vladmir Korg (original singer of CHAKAL) and the pure thrash fury for which Brazil is known, Phantasmagoria will now get a proper worldwide release on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette formats, a long-awaited offering to all true fans of the genre!
Pre-order:  http://store.greyhazerecords.com/index.phproute=product/product&product_id=463
Decibel Magazine previously premiered "Barbed Wire Land (At War)." Stream it below.
http://decibelmagazine.com/blog/2016/12/16/greyhaze-to-reissue-the-mists-phantasmagoria-hear-first-song-now
Upon its 1989 release Phantasmagoria was a departure from what was being done by bands from the City of  Belo Horizonte up to that point. The album showed a Thrash attack that was as vicious as it was precise. Drummer Cristiano Salles' relentless thrash beat coupled with Korg's unmistakable higher-pitched guttural vocals set the tone of an album that had everything to become a big album. Sadly, it was not to achieve the recognition that it deserved. Over the years it circulated through the Metal world as somewhat of an obscure collector's item. Now with this Greyhaze reissue, Phantasmagoria gets its overdue North American and European official release!
Track Listing:
1. Flying Saucers in the Sky
2. Smiles, Tears and Chaos
3. A Step into the Dark
4. The Enemy
5. Hate
6. Barbed Wire Land (At War)
7. Phantasmagoria

From the depths of Finnish melancholy and messenger of death HAUTAJAISYÖ  (Funeral Night) released a new single on 19.01.2017 and its called “UNOHDETUT” (the forgotten). This song is the most melodic song they have ever played and the two guitarists play melodic and brutal riffs like never before. With the normal low growling vocals comes more “heavy metal” style clean vocals done by Tomas Ahlroos from Omniversum band. Same man were featuring in the first Hautajaisyö album. Band's melancholy thrash & melodic death metal has a unique taste in them. Finnish sung vocals are not traditional death metal lyrics. Songs are hard and brutal, but still melodic in many ways. Second song in the single is a cover song from a Finnish hard rock band “Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus”  and the long song title mean “62”. Hautajaisyö is making its second album as we speak and the release is scheduled later this year.

ASHENSPIRE STREAM NEW ALBUM IN FULL. Scottish avant-garde extreme.metal band ASHENSPIRE have teamed up with Noisey to stream their new album SPEAK NOT OF THE LAUDANUM QUANDARY. The album is set to be released this Friday via Code666.
The band commented about the album "It is our greatest pleasure and privilege to disclose Speak Not of the Laudanum Quandary in its full and unabridged form. Contained within are seven critical observations on our own imperial history, presented in stark contrast to our tendency to sanitise our history to justify our present. Each draws crucial parallels with modernity, and implores the listener to consider their own position of privilege in an unjust world. With the rise of right-wing populism, scapegoating and bigotry across the globe, Speak Not… comes at a time when it has never been so relevant."
Pre-order the album here:  http://www.auralwebstore.com/shop/index.php?id_product=869&controller=product&id_lang=1
Speak Not of the Laudanum Quandary is a harrowing, yet distinctly human odyssey through the absurdities and tragedies of British imperialism, voiced in an appropriately deranged sprechgesang by the band’s creative director, Alasdair Dunn.
The band takes influence from the original approach to metal found in bands such as A Forest of Stars, Dødheimsgard, Vulture Industries and Pensées Nocturnes, along with a strong taste for theatrics in the vein of Devil Doll and Diamanda Galas.
Recorded and Mixed by Greg Chandler (Esoteric, Fen)
Mastered by Brad Boatright (Sunn O))), Bell WItch, Yob, Converge)

Finland's GOREPHILIA will release its anticpated second full-length, SEVERED MONOLITH, on March 3. The album will be on on CD and digital formats via Dark Descent Records, with vinyl treatment through Me Saco Un Ojo.
Album track "The Ravenous Storm" is now streaming at Dark Descent's Bandcamp page. Listen and pre-order Severed Monolit at darkdescentrecords.bandcamp.com/album/severed-monolith
Five years and two new members - drummer Kauko Kuusisalo who joined right after the release of their debut album and second six-stringer Pauli Gurko who arrived last year - later, Finland's most in-your-face death metal band is back and they still are forging their way with a hammer.
"This was meant at first to be an EP," reveals their original guitarist Jukka Aho "but it slowly grew into a full-length. "Some of the songs date all the way back to 2012 and the material has had much time to ferment resulting in GOREPHILIA's most refined compositions yet. The lyrics explore the inner conflict and self-destructive nature of man - parting from his will, values and life. The album was recorded with Tommi Otsavaara, mostly live in studio with the exception of vocals and guitar solos, just like for our debut."   
If lately many of their contemporaries, including famed label mates KRYPTS whom Jukka is incidentally also part of, have decided to reconnect themselves with the 'classic Finnish sound' of the early 90's, GOREPHILIA have on the other hand decided to go against the tide and turn their gaze towards the US for inspiration. Their goal is pretty simple: making sure their take on the genre has the kind of sudden impact few will recover from. Whereas others tend to wave around their prey, they're in for the kill and after 'Embodiment of Death' back in 2012, their second full-length 'Severed Monolith' is deemed to twist the knife in the wound even deeper. 
The only moment where you'll be able to catch your breath is the interlude 'Words That Solve Problems', basically a stepping stone for the following onslaught, 'Black Horns'. And the first track previewed 'The Ravenous Storm' is no different, with its furious barrage of blasts and blistering solos. Rounded off by Raul Gonzalez 'cosmic' artwork reminiscent of what he already had done for MORBUS CHRON, 'Severed Monolith' is just that, a testament to death metal crushing power."

Music for the seven-track album is by  H'grimnir and V'gandr with lyrics by V'gandr.  It was recorded at the Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen, where it was produced by Bjornar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) and mastered by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED).  Artists  performing guest vocals on the "landawarijaR"   include William Hut, Morten Egeland (NARROWHEAD),  Pehr Skjoldhammer (ALFAHANNE),  Bjornar E Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) and Ottorpedo.
With artwork by H'grimnir, tracklisting for "landawarijaR" is as follows:
1. Ymr
2. Baklengs mot intet
3. Rista blodørn
4. landawarijaR 
5. Ouroboros
6. Synir af heidindomr
7. Enda-dagr
Just as HELHEIM's "raunijaR" followed in the same vein as its predecessor "Asgards Fall", "landawarijaR" continues where "Heidindomr" ended.  Through the songs, and the two videos that will also appear,  Helheim are continuing their exploration and modern interpretation of the darker aspects of the North-European, pre-Christian , in order to capture the spirit of the Norse heritage in ways that have eluded both to researchers and archaeologists.
One of the above-mentioned videos, for the track 'Baklengs mot intet', was recently revealed and will be followed at a later date by "Ymr".  Produced and directed by Guilherme Henriques, the video for 'Baklengs mot intet' is a visual illustration of the inner battle, the bottomless despair, and endless futility experienced by a Walker of the Way.  It can be seen at
https://youtu.be/kRiimctYXiQ
"landwarijaR" is available in CD, Vinyl and Digital formats, and is available to pre-order, along with related merchandise, at 
https://www.darkessencerecords.no/shop/ and  https://helheim.bandcamp.com as well as at the US website at https://darkessence.aisamerch.com.
 HELHEIM's next live appearance will be at Norway's Inferno Metal Festival in Oslo, in April.

Formerly called TRAITOR, SUNLIGHT'S BANE has crafted a sound so inherently dark and repulsive that even the sunlight will withdraw and run from it! 
Stream "Praise the Venom Shield"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RO720X1svQ4
The Blackest Volume: Like All the Earth Was Buried was recorded by Andy Nelson at Bricktop Recordings (Harm's Way, Weekend Nachos, Exalt, Dead In the Dirt) and mastered by Brad Boatright of Audiosiege (Nails, Full of Hell, Integrity, Twitching Tongues).
Track Listing:
1. Praise the Venom Shield
2.  Begrudging Soul
3. From Heaven Wept
4. Curse Diminished Years
5. I Am the Cold Harsh Whispers in Hell

7. The Blessed Ivory Tongue
8. No Taste More Bitter
9. With Fear This Love is Given
10. Came No Dawn
11. To Whom I Await
SUNLIGHT'S BANE was started original under the name TRAITOR in 2011 by several friends whose bands had been playing together for years. All members wanted to start a band that would simply strip themselves of the clean and organized approach to aggressive music that had become commonplace and focus on writing truly alarming, frightening and aggressive music. The idea was to combat the complacent attitude of contemporary music, through sound, presentation, and themes in their music, which is what led to the combining genres of abrasive and political hardcore of the 90s with the bleak and nihilistic sound and atmosphere of European black metal. 
 After touring for numerous years around the country, the band slowly began to craft and focus their sound and approach following years of varying influences and visions of what the project should and should not be. Eventually the band in 2015 decided before recording its debut record to essentially reboot the system by changing its name . The band decided that the best way to abridge the old material and band into the new would be to pick an older song title for the new name, setting on the song title "Sunlight's Bane" from their debut EP 
Shadowheart, which they describe as being a description of something so inherently dark and repulsive that even sunlight would withdraw and run from it. It's he feeling they hope their upcoming album The Blackest Volume: Like All the Earth Was Buried on Innerstrength Records conveys in listeners.

Melodic death metal doomsters NAILED TO OBSCURITY release their new album “KING DELUSION” on February 3rd via Apostasy Records. In a track-by-track breakdown the band explains the process, the characteristic and the thematic background of each song. Today, they unveil the first of two parts.
You can watch the first part of the track-by-track here:

They found the perfect sound while working together with producer Victor “Santura” Bullok (Triptykon, Dark Fortress, Obscura, a.o.) in his Woodshed Studio: atmospheric, melancholic but also transparent. The vibe is also captured in the haunting artwork by Argentinian artist Santiago Caruso.

North Carolina Doom Trio TEMPTATION'S WINGS will release concept album SKULTHOR EBONBLADE on March 10. New song "Lair of the Gorgon Queen" is now streaming at  this location.
Following the release of 2012 EP  Legends of the Tusk , the new full-length release is the culmination of a decade spent continually improving and refining its Thrashy Doom Metal style. The results speak for themselves, as Skulthor Ebonblade is the complete package: mighty riffs, propulsive rhythms, and emotionally penetrating vocals that hit the Heavy Metal sweet spot and leave the listener with songs that remain etched in the memory for days on end. 
Lyrically, the story of the album concerns legendary warrior Skulthor who returns to find his village burning in black flames, and catches a glimpse of a witch as she disappears behind the smoke. He sets off on a quest to obtain a sword of great power, so he can avenge his clan but loses his humanity along the way only to have to rediscover it to ultimately obtain revenge he sought all along.
Skulthor Ebonblade will be released on CD and digital formats.  The CD version will include an acoustic bonus track called "Solitude." The album was mixed, mastered, and recorded by Andy Bishop at Giraffe Studios, Hendersonville NC. Artwork By David Paul Seymour.
Track Listing:
1. Burning of Hjalmar
2. I Destroyer
3. Into the Maelstrom
4. To Forge a Legend(Ulfbehrt)
5. Lair of the Gorgon Queen
6. Solitude*
7. Treachery of the Blind Raven
8. Witches of Dredmoor
9. My Name was Skulthor
*CD Bonus Track
Hailing from the mountains of North Carolina, Temptation's Wings was formed back in 2005. After several lineup changes the core was finally established at the end 2006 and the and has been making music since ever since. The mission statement has always been the same: Write songs they like and pushing the songwriting and technique beyond the previous release . A few albums and EPs have been released over the years, but the band really hit their stride with the 2012  EP Legends of the Tusk. The band played as many shows as they could supporting the EP and relentlessly promoted it. The work paid off when the trio was asked to open for the legendary Iced Earth by a representative of that band in their hometown's biggest venue, The Orange Peel.  Now with the impending LP release of Skulthor Ebonblade and addition of new bassist Chad Barnwell, Temptation's Wings is eager to play to more ears than ever!

LOOKING FOR PARTNERS TO DEBUT TRACKS FROM UPCOMING SLAGMAUR ALBUM : In conjunction with OSMOSE PRODUCTIONS we are looking for partners to stream three tracks from SLAGMAUR's upcoming full-length album “Thill Smitts Terror” -  five years in the making and the follow up to 2009’s critically acclaimed “Von Rov Shelter”.
“Thill Smitts Terror” will continue where “Von Rov Shelter” left off, delving more and more deeply into the  disturbing world that SLAGMAUR conjures up by combining modern and classical instruments  with children’s nursery rhymes and fairy tales.  It is a world where classically constructed melodies blend seamlessly with aggressive black metal to create a nightmare scenario straight from the pit of hell.   Art, as well as music, is an integral part of the whole that is SLAGMAUR  - from the sinister masks and costumes the band wears on stage, to the disturbing images used in the artwork for the albums, all is created, and carefully crafted, by the band's founder General Gribbsphiiser.  
Mysterious and secretive, SLAGMAUR was formed in the remote reaches of North Western Norway, in 2006.  The band have never revealed their true identities and always appear heavily disguised, often as characters from their own songs.  Nor have they ever revealed how they create the sinister music that invades the listeners mind with layer upon layer of sound  that reveals a different facet each time you hear it, depending on your current state of mind. 
In view of the fact that SLAGMAUR are shortly to make their first US appearance, and with their second appearance at Inferno Metal Festival coming up not long after,  we would like to offer you the opportunity to stream THREE tracks from the album.  The tracks will be streamed through BandCamp and will ONLY be available to those partners taking part.  Each partner will receive their own embed codes direct from Osmose and they will not be embeddable by anyone else.   
The tracks would be made live at 16:00 CET on Thursday 26 January.  A world-wide press release will be issued with links to the articles on all the sites taking part in the streaming.
If you are interested please get in touch by either answering this email or direct via patriciathomas@btinternet.com.  When you reply, please ensure you send us the URL for the website that will be embedding as we need this in order  to  send you your personal embed codes and all the necessary details.

It's 2017 already… so let's start off by uploading a new version of my distro list, shall we?! And as always I got new zines for you people like ARCH VILE from Hungary or new issues of NECROSCOPE from Poland, THRONE OF CHAOS from Portugal or BY THIS AXE I RULE from Spain / Germany - just to mention a few - as well as new old stock of zines like SERPENTSCOPE or the debut issue of VOICE OF THE NIGHT.
Apart from that you might take a close look at the fresh copies of HIRNPLATZT I received from Hirntrust Gind Media (Austria) or the excellent reprint of REST IN PAIN zine I released a couple of weeks ago - filled with truly amazing one hundred and fifty (!!!) handmade pages of pure metal insanity! FUKK!
Needless to say that I also managed to pick up a couple more second hand titles such as ISTEN, SLAYER, DESECRATION OF VIRGIN or THE SINISTER FLAME! And a little bit of music like the new WARTIME CD (Dooooom!) and the "Leather Evil Leather" album of colombian speedsters ALCOHOLIC FORCE while PRESUMED DEAD put all of their recordings on one tape and called it "Defunct Existence". Curious? Take one - you won't regret it!
Last but not least I still got plenty of old issues of ROCK HARD and METAL HAMMER in stock you will hardly ever find anywhere else, especially when all of the original poster and add-on material is still inside - like big size posters, flex discs and what not!!!
And there's a whole box full of pristine looking copies of SPLATTING IMAGE issues, starting with no. 1 up to no. 66, searching for a new home. You know someone who's into horror and gore movies? THIS might be THE one chance for your buddies to get their hands on some serious stuff!

RESONANCE CASCADE | JÄRNBÖRD - 'HYPERAKUSI'  Split Album (Sweden) : Grindcore, D-Beat  :  For fans from Insect Warfare, Skitsystem, Assück, Disrupt, Misery Index...
WOOAAARGH and mighty EveryDayHate & Downfall Records will release Hyperakusi (Swedish word that means "hypersensitivity to everyday sounds), an insane split album from Swedish grind bands RESONANCE CASCADE and JÄRNBÖRD.
Hyperakusi will be released on February 24 2017 as a limited edition vinyl, CD and digital download.
RESONANCE CASCADE is first up on Hyperakusi and their high speed, Insect Warfare inspired assault is addictive. The tracks here just rage forward, glorifying in the filth but also blazing forward at a speed unmatched by mortal man. RESONANCE CASCADE understand the gritty glory of grindcore and the chaotic riffing that defines a song like Bricks is strangely mesmerizing. JÄRNBÖRD on the other hand feel distinctly more old school, their primitive drum tone and shouted vocals cranking forward angrily. The pissed off magic behind their side of the split represents all that the first wave of grind stood for, and it is utterly glorious. -
Two Guys Metal Reviews
Järnbörd formed in the summer of 2012 under the name of “Den Mänskliga Faktorn” (The Human Factor), and recorded their first demo in 2014.
In 2015 the band changed their name to Järnbörd after discovering another band with the same name.
The band plays tough grindpunk with lyrics in Swedish that deals with issues of enduring and maintaining your sense in an idiotic world.
Järnbörd is:
Michael Berlin - bass, vocals
Jocke Unger - Drums
Anders Schärberg - Guitar, Vocals
RESONANCE CASCADE was formed in summer 2012 in Malmö Sweden with the goal to play raw and simple but effective grindcore. 
In 2014 they released  a 10 song 7” EP via the American label Cricket Cemetery and now in 2017, the band will release Hyperakusi with fellow grind band Järnbörd.
RESONANCE CASCADE is:
Andreas Johansson - Bass
Arvid Borg - drums
Dan Widing - guitar

EDEN WEINT IM GRAB: Crowdfunding-Kampagne, Filmprojekt und Cover von "Na(c)htodreise" : Die Berliner Band Eden Weint Im Grab, die ihre Musik als schwermetallische Schauerromantik bezeichnet, bereitet hinter den Kulissen gerade die Veröffentlichung ihres neuen Konzeptalbums "Na(c)htodreise" vor, das am 31. März 2017 via Einheit Produktionen/Soulfood erscheint. So wurde jüngst eine Crowdfunding-Kampagne gestartet, um einen außergewöhnlichen Videoclip zu einem der Albumsongs produzieren zu können: https://www.startnext.com/ewigvideo2017
Als Regisseur steht der Band wieder Rainer ZIPP Fränzen (u.a. Atrocity, Faun, Leaves' Eyes, Dimmu Borgir etc.) zur Seite. Des Weiteren arbeitet die Band selbst gerade an einem ausführlichen Film, der die Entstehung von "Na(c)htodreise" dokumentiert. Dieser wird in den nächsten Wochen in mehreren Teilen online veröffentlicht. Als Appetizer haben Eden Weint Im Grab heute das Cover ihres neuen Longplayers veröffentlicht. Es wurde von Nina Berger gezeichnet. Das ganze Artwork wird in diesem minimalistischen Scherenschnitt-Design gehalten sein und die Formation optisch von einer ganz neuen Seite präsentieren.

THE COMMITTEE - MEMORANDUM OCCULTUS  THE COMMITTEE wurde im Winter 2007 als Soloprojekt von Igor Mortis gegründet. In der Folge schlossen sich der Band weitere Mitstreiter an und mit "Holodomor" erschien die erste EP, die für ein großartiges Feedback sorgte. Das THE COMMITTEE-Hauptquatier liegt in Belgien, doch die Wurzeln der Musiker stammen aus unterschiedlichen Staaten. Bereits auf "Power Through Unity" erschuf die Band ein frisches Konzept, das seinen Fokus auf die Geschichte, okkulte Manipulationen und faszinierende Events der Vergangenheit richtet. Mittlerweile ist die Band auch durch eine Vielzahl von Liveshows aus der Szene nicht mehr wegzudenken und wird zurecht für ihre einzigartige Mischung aus Black und Doom Metal gefeiert.
Drei Jahre nach ihrem historischen Debütalbum ist der Nachfolger "Memorandum Okkultus" endlich fertig gestellt. Das zweite Full-Length-Album von THE COMMITTEE ist eine methodische Reise durch eine dunkle Welt aus Intrigen, Lügen, Betrug, völliger Manipulation, Leiden und Völkermord. Das Bild wird durch die Augen der reichen und mächtigen Hirten gezeigt, die ihr Wissen an die nächste Generation von Herrschern weitergeben. Es ist eine Geschichte für diejenigen von uns, die erkennen, dass der schiefe Spiegel der "alltäglichen Wirklichkeit" ein bloßer Schleier ist, der über unsere Augen gezogen wird. "Memorandum Occultus" ist eine detaillierte Roadmap für die Versklavung und den Völkermord von Millionen. Es ist ein rücksichtslos wirksames und makelloses System von Schritten und Richtlinien für ein selbsttragendes System der "strukturlosen Kontrolle", das über viele Jahrhunderte hinweg perfektioniert wurde.

Die Industrial-Rocker DAS SCHEIT veröffentlichen mit dem Song "Velvet Tears" ein neues Video. Der Track ist gleichzeitig der erste Release vom Soundtrack des 2017 erscheinenden Psychothrillers „Das dunkelste Nichts“ (Originaltitel: The Darkest Nothing - Paraphrenia).
Filmausschnitte aus dem bizarren, teils harten Streifen von Regisseur Filip Halo, wurden mit Live-Sequenzen des Konzerts in der Bochumer Matrix der kürzlich absolvierten Euro-Tour im Vorprogramm von Soil, gepaart. Regisseur Halo liess es sich dabei nicht nehmen, die Dark Rocker persönlich auf digitales „Zelluloid“ zu bannen.

BLACK METALLERS ENEPSIGOS REVEAL NEW VIDEO OF TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM  :  Black Metallers ENEPSIGOS, one of the projects of the ubiquitous Norwegian frontman Doedsadmiral (NORDJEVEL, SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR), who in the case of ENEPSIGOS, goes under the name of V.I.T.H.R, have today debuted their new lyric video for the track "Pagan Rites" from the band's upcoming debut full-length album "PLAGUE OF PLAGUES".
The video, by Hugo Aribart,  can be seen at
 https://youtu.be/5eK9w0Ag3XE
Aside from  V.I.T.H.R, who formed the band in 2015, on vocals, ENEPSIGOS' lineup includes Straff (ex SARKOM) on guitars and bass, and Italian drummer Thorns, known for his work with BLUT AUS NORD, DEATHROW, FIDES INVERSA, FROSTMOON ECLISPE and DARVAZA, to name but a few.  Together, the trio have created a band whose music is dark and brutal, and heavily ritualistic, in the tradition of early Black Metal.
"Plague of Plagues" is set for release on Drakkar Productions on the 15th January.  The eight track album was mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, whilst Guitars, Bass and Vocals were recorded at Velvet Recording, in Spydeberg, Norway, with engineer Christer Krohg,  and the drums were recorded at the Beastcave Studios in Italy.
With  artwork by Vincent Fouquet and Above Chaos, tracklisting  for "Plague of Plagues" is as follows:
 1.Plague Of Plagues
2. Råtne Engler
3. Pagan Rites
4. The Cold Bones

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS CREST OF DARKNESS REVEAL NEW VIDEO AND EXPLAIN THE CONCEPT BEHIND THE UNUSUAL CHOICE OF SONG : With the their seventh full-length album "WELCOME THE DEAD" released at the end of last year, and earning plaudits from fans and critics alike, veteran Norwegian Black Metallers CREST OF DARKNESS have uploaded a new video for a track from the album to their YouTube channel.   The track chosen for this video is "My Black Bride" which makes this a particularly unusual choice for the band, not only because it is an instrumental, something the band has only recorded on two occasions over the years, but it is also a melodic, deeply atmospheric piece, totally different from the band's usual Black/Death/Metal sound.  
The reasons for creating such an "out of character" piece are quite fascinating, and are explained below by the band's founder and frontman  Ingar Amlien (CONCPTION, ROQUEFIRE,  AMLIEN's INFERNO).  The video itself can be seen at
 https://youtu.be/niPFDtJgpC4
According to Amlien "My Black Bride" was written for his wife Laila, who wore a black wedding dress when the couple married over ten years ago.    "I had wanted to write a special song for Laila for a long time.  She has supported me and my work for so many years, and without her I really don't know where I would be today, and I  knew right from the start that if I was to create this piece it would have to be totally honest.  Something personal, and not the kind of rose-tinted love song that people tend to expect when you write a song dedicated to the love of your life. 
 "I tried to capture the feeling of romance and happiness, but at the same time I wanted to touch on something more "forbidden" - the dark side if you like to think of it like that.  Like most couples we have been through many experiences in the time we've shared together, both good and bad. But, unlike most couples, my work has always involved being "in touch" with both Life and Death, something  Laila has always been very aware of, so the difficult times take on a darker significance. 
"I also knew that this song had to be an instrumental because words could not possibly express what I was trying to communicate with this song.  I played the guitars myself - I felt I had to as these few notes I'm playing are so extremely personal.   To the listener the song may sound like a simple, stripped down piece of music, which is what I intended it to be, but it comes from the depth of my heart ands contains many small details that someone outside of the relationship I have with my wife cannot understand.  It's a heartbreaking piece, but as with all my music, there is something deeper behind it.  There is my belief that inside all of us there burns a black flame - that special will to survive".
 The video itself was created and edited by Francesco Palumbo at MKM Graphix, using images from the Cappuccin Catacombs in Palermo, Italy, and, given that "My Black Bride" is essentially a romantic piece, the choice of such macabre images might seem strange.  "When I first saw the video I almost choked" admitted Amlien.  "The images were right for CREST OF DARKNESS, but I was a little taken aback at first.  However, the more I looked at it, the more I realised that they were, in fact, perfect". 
"Welcome the Dead" was released on My Kingdom Music in both CD and Digital formats at the end of last year.  A double LP format, which will feature a special bonus track, will be released shortly in collaboration with Metal Age Productions, Kristallblut Records and Supreme Music Creations.  Artwork for the album features  the strange and disturbing Zombie Foetus sculptures created by the Italian artist Andrea Falaschi.
CREST OF DARKNESS' lineup of  Amlien on bass and vocals, Rebo on guitars, Bernhard (ex- PALE FOREST) on drums, and Kristian Wentzel on keyboards,  will celebrate the release of "Welcome the Dead" with a special Friday the 13th show at Retro in Raufoss, Norway in January. 
More information about CREST Of Darkness can be found on the band's Facebook page at  http://www.facebook.com/crestofdarknessofficial 
"Welcome the Dead" is now available from all the usual retailers as well as direct from My Kingdom Music at  http://smarturl.it/DEAD-CD  in CD and 2LP formats, and in digital format at  http://smarturl.it/WELCOME-THE-DEAD.
Nine tracks tracing the history of CREST OF DARKNESS, can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud page at  http://soundcloud.com/crest-of-darkness/sets/crest-of-darkness,  whilst the official playlist, which includes the band's entire catalogue can be heard on Spotify at  https://open.spotify.com/user/patriciathomas/playlist/7hW4CvcmbBGGriJtJBryx5
THIS ENDS HERE | CONQUEROR WORM SPLIT (UK) Genre :  Crust, Punk, Grind  :  for fans from Tragedy, Amebix, Disrupt, Eyehategod, Celtic Frost, Fear of God...
Two UK bands combine to produce a record to reflect the bleak realities of the modern world. A record that evokes the dark, miserable and disorienting experience of watching humanity destroy itself.
The This Ends Here side of this intriguing split is 18 minutes that claim to be five songs but could be anything from one to a dozen depend on who’s counting, proving the potential for modern crust to incorporate a challenging variety of musical genres. It opens with Seeds, a continuation of the sound on the 2014 Afterwards 7“ - anthemic d-beat breaking into heavy riffage – before careening through a chaotic collection of styles including punk, doom and post-rock and finally descending into a bleak, atmospheric outro. Lyrically, the themes of environmental and social collapse run throughout these songs, with a haunting sample from Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, whilst musically evoking emotions such as anger, despair and even hope that accompany these dark themes.
Conqueror Worm are a three piece bass and drums deathgrind band that combine the viciousness of bands like 324 and Fear of God with the atmosphere of Gorguts and the barbarism of Celtic Frost. This release sees them exploring dungeon-crawling grind that is equal parts cavernous and ear-splitting. A roughly hewn collection of very nasty tunes, the tracks lyrically and thematically mirror the This Ends Here side- songs about the eradication of nature are paired with reflective sci-fi themed blasts and a fizzing, noise-laden production. Drawing from doom and noise influences the bass runs through as many amps and distortion pedals as possible creating a truely monolithic cloud of noise, occasionally penetrated by swarming blast beats and tortuous, wailed vocals in the vein of Khanates Alan Dubin.

TELEPORT - "ASCENDANCE EP"   Genre:  Sci-fi Death/Black Metal
The beginnings of the band date back to 2010 when three fans of sci-fi thrash metal were brought together and they started playing together. Soon they recorded their first demo, which was never released and after that in January 2011, there has been a change in the lineup of the band when the drummer Fedja left the band. Guitarist and vocalist Jan Medved and bass player Lovro Babic needed a new drummer and the position was filled by Toni Pleško. Later that year they released a demo entitled Galactic usurper and soon after their first release Blaž Tanšek joined the band as the second guitarist. In november 2013 the quartet released their second demo titled Stellar damnation. While new material was being made Blaž Tanšek and Toni Pleško left the band and were replaced by Matija Dolinar and Darian Kocmur. New Ep titled Ascendance was released in late 2016 with the new lineup consisting of Matija Dolinar (Guitars), Jan Medved (Guitars, Vocals), Darian Kocmur (Drums) and Lovro Babic (Bass).
Line-up: 
Jan Medved (vocals, guitars)
Lovro Babič (bass)
Matija "Dole" Dolinar (guitars)
Darian Kocmur (drums)

THE RITUAL AURA (Australia) - 'TÆTHER'     :   Genre - Technical Death Metal   :  For fans of - Wormhole, Blade of Horus, Necrophagist, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Psycroptic
THE RITUAL AURA have gone from strength to strength and after putting out a couple of titillating songs under the guise of an EP earlier in the year, they have finally unleashed a magnificent and ambitious beast of an album. Unlike most other albums of this ilk, this one covers a lot more ground and yet remains very well balanced and conceptually delves into ancient Japanese folk horror. The are numerous songs but the album doesn't lose momentum and in fact exudes a wonderful mystical vibe and makes the affair more intriguing than it normally is. 'Tæther' is a brilliant album and I daresay one of the best of its kind to be released in recent times.

GATEWAY: Belgian One-man Death-Doom Monstrosity Releasing "SCRIPTURES OF GRIEF" Album on February 3 2017 - Track Streaming at CVLT Nation.  Dear Press Partners and Friends in the Media worldwide, Sentient Ruin Laboratories is extremely proud and honored to announce the release of Scriptures of Grief, the colossal new album from Belgian one-man death-doom destruction machine Gateway.
Coming as limited edition cassette tape + digital product, Scriptures of Grief is a death-doom odyssey already slated to become a cornerstone release in 2017 extreme metal and one of the most crushing and inhumanly heavy underground releases of the year.  Constructed upon colossal and skull-crushing progressions of ancient and mummified death metal, Gateway's music then takes shape through a harrowing time-warp of completely doomed sonic rot. Tempos collapse to an agonizing slither, rhythms seem to stretch ad infinitum transfiguring into a lucid coma, all while the sheer tonnage of every riff is fully revealed through this slow motion decay in all its putrid glory, revealing a beast whose mass and ugliness is of unparalleled magnificence.
Masterfully re-evoking the completely doomed and rotting atmospheres of legendary death-doom masters like Disembowelment, Undergang, Coffins, Winter and Thorr's Hammer, Gateway have created an authentic omnipotent sonic underworld in which death rules everything, endlessly reaching beyond the unknown like a massive and rotting black hole, and dragging every living thing to its inevitable and tormented conclusion.
Slated for a February 3 2017 release - CVLT Nation is now streaming the opening track from the record (read the article and listen to "I"
HERE ), calling  Scriptures of Grief as an "inhumanly toxic and devastating death-doom masterpiece". 
You can now pre-order Scriptures of Grief cassettes on our
 store  and cassettes and digital products on our  Bandcamp.

After six years since the release of their last album, Indiana's war-themed Death Machine INVASION will release DESTROYER OF MANKIND via Abyss Records on February 17.  The band's fourth album is nothing short of a devastating onslaught of Death Metal! New track "Approaching Cauldron of Horror" is streaming at  this location.
This brutal and uncompromising release demonstrates INVASION's vicious blitzkrieg and wages battle with new members Dan Klein (drums) and John Hehman (lead guitar), while main songwriter/lyricist/guitarist Peter Clemens continues his obsession with World War II.  Peter had this to say about the band's activities leading up to the recording of Destroyer of Mankind:
"It's been almost six years since Orchestrated Kill Maneuver was released on Rotting Corpse Records, and it's been somewhat of a frustrating endeavor.  We lost original drummer Dave 'Ross' Cady in early 2014 and had auditions for the vacancy, which led to more delays, but in the end we acquired Dan Klein (FIN/NOCTURNE) on drums and lead guitarist John Hehman (YEAR OF DESOLATION).  Plus we teamed up with SEA OF TRANQUILLITY/SCREAMKING guitarist Ralphael Hernandez who played on the Berserk Artillery Barrage CD from 2001, so things have been moving forward."
Asked about his switch from guitar to bass, Peter stated "I'm an average guitar player so I had no problem handing guitar duties to John Hehman.  He's an excellent musician with a good ear, and teaming up with him to work on the new INVASION recordings was an obvious choice.  John pretty much helped lay the groundwork for the recordings in his studio (Broken Toe/Bang Recordings) and things turned out great."
"From Above Merciless Death Now Rains On Your Fucking Parade!"
Track Listing:
1. I Am the Enemy
2. Approaching Cauldron of Horror
3. The Divine Wind
4. Iron Bottom Sound
5. Dying on the Beaches of Normandy
6. A Satisfying Death
7. Play the Devils Piano
8. Summon the Wolfpack
9. Shores of Betio Island
INVASION has been in existence since the early 90s and has been destroying the complacent metal scene with their version of "War Metal" throughout those years with the release of these venomous  and horror filled recordings. Find and buy them now!

HEREZA - I BECOME DEATH   Genre : Death Metal/Punk
GODZ OV WAR PRODUCTIONS is proud to present HEREZA's highly anticipated debut album, I Become Death. Hailing from Croatia, HEREZA are an anomaly: not only for playing death metal in a country otherwise barren for such, but more so that their brand of DEATH fucking METAL is so purely and authentically mid '90s, it literally sounds like a lost relic from that era.
Certainly, everyone's well aware of the Swedish death metal boom that kicked off the 1990s, but many overlook where that style went by the middle of the decade. While death 'n' roll became a passing fad, some intrepid warriors upped the speed and dexterity whilst losing none of the gutsfucking brutality and darkness that defined Swedeath early on - and that's where HEREZA come in with I Become Death!
From the scabrous 'n' surging songwriting on down to even the production itself, I Become Death thoroughly accomplishes its titular namesake with a rollicking ride through death metal's past and recasting it in a rottenly fresh manner. And at 10 songs in 30 minutes, HEREZA here don't waste any time with niceties: nothing but bulldozing filth and fury. The past is alive with I Become Death!

PILLORIAN WILL MAKE THEIR DARK ARTS KNOWN WITH ‘OBSIDIAN ARC‘. Pillorian was formed in early Summer of 2016 by Stephen Parker (Maestus, ex-Arkhum), John Haughm (ex-Agalloch), and Trevor Matthews (Uada, ex-Infernus) with the goal to create a unique, sinister, and twisted style of dark/black metal.
Pillorian adj.- of, or relating to, scorn and condemnation.
Fusing haunting melodies with avantgarde structures, dark folk elements and blackened walls of furious sound; the music of Pillorian is the perfect aural definition of its namesake.
“Obsidian Arc” was recorded at Witch Ape/Skyway Audio and Sprout City Studios by Tad Doyle and Stephen Parker and it was mixed and mastered at Klangschmiede Studio E by Markus Stock.
In support of this debut album, the official advance album single with exclusive b-side is set to be released February 10th , as 7" Vinyl & Digital.

The second full-length album by Italian Death Metal band. Melodic and at the same time Brutal Death Metal sound. The metric is particularly Technical and Progressive but it preserves the violent impact, combined in pressing and rapid drums and vocals interweaving in growl and scream lines, that give tracks a personal and evolving tone from the start to the end.
ARKANA CODE differs markedly from other bands playing Extreme Metal for the personal and particular sound, for the concept of the band and the imaginary transmitted on the stage. The project has an imaginary of an ancient code discovered and decrypted in every band's release, narrating stories decrypted in this code, transposition of situations we live in our life.
This is a concept album. The lyrics decrypted from the code talks about an ancestral civilization, the terrifying situation they lived, lobotomized, about cruelty that was impregnated in their existence. Every track has a personal story, with imaginary horror. Anachronistic, mysterious, ancient, with a transposition in our days. All that can be transposed in our existence...
For fans of: Carcass, Children Of Bodom, Obscura, Arch Enemy, Death, Impaled Nazarene, Obituary, and Cannibal Corpse!

THORMESIS – “ TRÜMMERFARBEN “   For fans of Pagan Black Metal, Der Weg einer Freiheit, Fäulnis, Agrypnie, Eis
After their impressive return in march 2015 with their "Freier Wille - Freier Geist" album, the southern German Pagan Black Metallers THORMESIS present their fifth longplayer called "Trümmerfarben" in early 2017.
Musically, they continue where they left off with the predecessor album. „Trümmerfarben“ is a logical progression of the chosen path. Great melodies in a vicious and frosty, black metal-worthy sound, pave the way through the songs. Stylistically, Thormesis can not to be described with one word, because they no longer fit in a simple genre box. With her elaborate songwriting, the quartet has long since managed to create its own stylistic place, which is located on the borders between Pagan and Black Metal. But they also do not shy away from crossings with classical rock elements, without compromising their own sound.

SAILLE TO RELEASE "GNOSIS"  :   "Gnosis" contains 9 tracks of epic black metal. Song titles set to appear on the effort include "Benei ha'Elohim" (based on the Book of Enoch - Man mixes with fallen angels, who gift them with knowledge and children), "Pandaemonium Gathers" (inspired by Paradise Lost (Milton) - Satan convinces his fallen comrades to take revenge for being expelled out of heaven), and "1904 Era Vulgaris" (after The Book of the Law (Crowley) - A brief description of some of the basic concepts of Crowley's Thelema).
Comments SAILLE guitarist Reinier Schenk: "Our previous cd "Eldritch" was a good album, but we felt it had to be darker, we had to bring SAILLE to another level. The logo has been modified as a statement; the 'curls' were removed, both in style and music. The listener can expect a more defined SAILLE, with an own identity. The tracks are more compact and powerful, meanwhile referring to the feel of our 2nd cd "Ritu", but more intense and extreme this time."
The new album also depicts SAILLE as a five-piece for the first time. Founding member Dries Gaerdelen decided to leave the band to focus on the bookings. Drummer Kevin De Leener states: "The orchestral part will remain an important part of SAILLE, but there will be no keyboard player on stage anymore." Concerning the recording of the drums for this album he says: "Well, it is definitely faster, which I think is awesome, and finally I am very satisfied with the natural sound of the drums on this record."
'Gnosis' is a concept album again. SAILLE frontman Dennie Grondelaers explains about the writing process and lyrics: "With 'Gnosis' (Greek for 'knowledge') we venture into the world of the Promethean ideal and its Luciferian counterpart. This album explores a multitude of historical, mythological and fictional sources that tell us about the strife for knowledge and its (potentially devastating) consequences. We also visit several creation myths and scratch the surface of Aleister Crowley's Thelema. The concept was born during research into Russian composer Alexander Scriabin and his works. His 'Prometheus: The Poem of Fire' didn't serve as a direct source for the lyrics, but it lit the fire that made us venture into above topics."

1  Benei ha'Elohim
2  Pandaemonium Gathers

SAURON: Releasing Comeback Album “WARA!” on Vinyl  .  The latest studio album, Wara!, from Polish pagan black metal act Sauron is finally going to see its vinyl release. The record is coming out soon through Witching Hour Productions and will be available through the record label’s webstore.
To coincide with the vinyl release, Wara! is now streaming in its entirety on YouTube:
 https://youtu.be/cIGy_dqH90c
Wara! is the latest original recording since the reunification of the veteran act. The album contains five brand new tracks, along with a Bathory cover, which take us back to the glorious days of black metal, the early 90s. Wara! oozes with atmosphere containing heavy riffs and is outstandingly produced. Sauron’s music will most definitely please fans of Bathory, Immortal/Abbath, Enslaved or Hades Almighty. The cover artwork was done by Robert A. von Ritter, while mentalporn.com was responsible for the layout and the rest of the graphics. Wara! was recorded at FFF Studio in Radom, Poland and mastering took place at Satanic Audio by Haldor Grunberg (Thaw, Mentor).
Sauron is one of the first Polish bands which introduced pagan black metal art to their local Polish scene when they were established in 1991. Their first release was a demo in 1993, entitled Hellish Requiem. Having gone through active and inactive periods, the band has been recently resurrected. Their latest studio offering is
Wara! which saw the day of light in September 2016 through Witching Hour Productions in CD and digital format. 2016 also saw the band re-release The Baltic Fog on tape through Witches Sabbath Records and The Land of Dead Sun on vinyl through Wheelwright Productions which was originally recorded in 1997. Earlier this month (January 2017), the band has also announced the re-release and remaster of The Baltic Fog through Wheelwright Productions on 3 March 2017.

DRUG HONKEY (US) - 'CLOAK OF SKIES' LP (May 5th, 2017)   :   Genre - Atmospheric Death/Doom Metal   :  For fans of - Godflesh, Jesu, The Nihilistic Front, Disembowelment, Inverloch, Scorn, Lurk
US band DRUG HONKEY have always been a step ahead of their peers, if there were any in the first place. Their brand of death/doom is something nightmarish, vaguely psychedelic and exudes a post-apocalyptic quality too. They've taken the vision of GODFLESH and added their own twist to it, making it darker, surreal and morbid. And yet there's a strangely reassuring quality to their atmospheric music. There's a form of tenacity in their music of the same kind that will have you crawl ahead in life despite all its inherent ugliness pinning you down. They are taking things to a different level, with guest contributions from the legend himself, Justin K. Broadrick (GODFLESH, JESU) and Bruce Lamont (YAKUZA, CORRECTIONS HOUSE) with his saxophone eeriness, and having the hand-painted artwork of Paolo Girardi (INQUISITION, CHTHE'ILIST) represent the pulsating sickness of this ambitious and unconventional release. 
Track list: 
1. Pool of Failure (5:44)
2. Sickening Wasteoid (6:12)
3. Outlet of Hatred (6:48)
4. (It’s Not) The Way (6:36)
5. The Oblivion of an Opiate Nod (10:00) (Ft. Bruce Lamont of YAKUZA)
6. Cloak of Skies (8:11)

UNDRASK REVEAL VIDEO FOR "LONGHAMMER" :  Up and coming melodic death metal band UNDRASK have teamed up with Metal Underground to premiere their video for the track "Longhammer". The epic video contains everything required for a death metal video including Vikings, epic battles and of course, beer! The track is taken from the band's upcoming album BATTLE THROUGH TIME which will be released on January 27th 2017
The band commented "One day after practice, we were sitting around drinking some Redhook Long Hammer IPA. It occurred to us that we should write a song about a warrior dude destroying things with a hammer that was actually a giant metaphor for drinking. We did that. Then we thought we'd drop the metaphors and make a video where our warrior dude crashes a party and does some drinking of his own.  The result is the Longhammer music video. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed creating it!"

HENRY KANE (Sweden) - 'DEN FÖRSTÖRDA MÄNNISKANS RIKE' LP (February 20th, 2016)   :   Genre - Death Metal/Crust   :  For fans of - Skitsystem, Nihlist, Dismember, Entombed, Carnage, Nasum, Extreme Noise Terror, Napalm Death
From Jonny Pettersson of WOMBBATH comes HENRY KANE, a ferocious slab of crusty Swedish death metal like no other. Rarely before has death metal been so vigorously channelled via the template of crustcore, leaving it infected with rabid fervour few can muster up the courage to withstand. This not only blends genres but lends to it an atmospheric quality fostered by an emotional undercurrent. Amidst slabs of cascading concrete, you have faint but poignant melodies making an appearance, changing the landscape of this expression. Nostalgic yet amplified to modern day aggression, HENRY KANE is the future of Swedish death metal and crust, a marriage made in a perfect post-apocalyptic world. 
Track list: 
1. En själ till salu 
2. Svarta tankar 
3. Skuld och begär 
4. En grav av ångest 
5. Är din botten nådd 
6. Dragen i skiten 
7. En längtan 
8. Den förstörda människans rike 
9. Flaskan var din sista vän 
10. Bön för bön 
11. Kära bror
12. Bara hat 
13. Lögnens svarta ögon 
14. Det var inte ditt fel 
15. Vinst eller fölust

Am 25.02.2017 erscheint das neue STREAMS OF BLOOD Album "ALLGEGENWÄRTIG". Auf ihrem dritten Album bleiben SoB ihren musikalischen Idealen treu, aber wachsen: Sie fusionieren musikalische Abgründe rasend-brutaler, epischer Blasthymnen mit mal trance-like, oft groovenden Atmosphäre-Orgien aus vernichtenden Riffs und kalt-herzigen, distanzierten Vocals. "Allgegenwärtig" dreht sich um das Allgegenwärtige, dass die Band umgibt, und die widersprüchlichen Erkenntnisse die sie erlangen. Um Leben und Tod, Licht und Dunkeltheit, Exzess und Spiritualität. Es sind SoBs innere Stimmen, tosend aus dem Abgrund der Seelen, genährt vom Chaos der Welten. http://www.folter666.de/
Hallo Leute, wir hoffen, ihr hattet einen guten Start ins neue Jahr und lasst die guten Vorsätze einfach Vorsätze sein. Bleibt in jedem Fall gesund und hört weiterhin die beste Musik der Welt: Metal! Sind das PARTY.SAN METAL OPEN AIR schon im Kalender eingetragen und das Ticket bestellt? Nein? Na dann aber los…hier gibt es wieder ein paar gute Gründe uns zu besuchen. Tickets: www.cudgel.de
Booking-News:
Das Beste ist uns gut genug: Die Death-Metal-Band der Superlative! „Altars Of Madness“ ist eines der wichtigsten Metalalben der Geschichte, „Covenant“ ist das wohl erfolgreichste Death-Metal-Album aller Zeiten, „Gateways To Annihilation“ ist eines der anspruchsvollsten Death-Metal-Alben aller Zeiten. Oder kurz: MORBID ANGEL mit Steve Tucker (Bass, Gesang) sind das Beste, was dem Party.San und seinem Publikum passieren kann!
Eine der markantesten und brachialsten Thrash-Bands der Geschichte ist wieder aktiv und kommt nach Schlotheim! DEMOLITION HAMMER, einst 1986 in New York gegründet, erschufen mit den drei Alben „Tortured Existence“ (1990), „Epidemic Of Violence“ (1992) und „Time Bomb“ (1994) brillante Soundtracks der totalen Verwüstung und lösten sich im Jahr 1994 auf. Nun also das Comeback – und endlich gibt's die heftigen Songperlen mal wieder live zu bestaunen!
Ohne POSSESSED kein Death Metal. Vor über 30 Jahren veröffentlichte die Legende ein Demo namens „Death Metal“, gefolgt vom 85er Debüt „Seven Churches“, auf dem besagter Song in überarbeiteter Form ebenfalls zu hören ist. Was dann kam, ist Geschichte: POSSESSED erlebten den weltweiten Durchbruch, tourten intensiv und veröffentlichten 1986 ihr zweites Album „Beyond The Gates“, rückblickend ebenfalls ein Klassiker des düsteren extremen Metal. Seit 2007 sind POSSESSED unter der Führung von Originalsänger Jeff Beccera wieder aktiv, und so steht einer vollen Dröhnung an Klassikersongs auch in Schlotheim nichts im Weg.
Slowenien kommt nach Thüringen! Vor 7 Jahren als Heavy/Speed-Metal-Band ins Rennen gegangen, haben VIGILANCE Schritt für Schritt ihren Stil verfeinert und sind in dunklere Gefilde eingedrungen. Mit ihrem Mix aus Heavy und Black Metal kommt der Underground gut klar, und das 2015er Album „Hounds Of Megiddo“ ist ein echter Geheimtipp. Antesten!
Tatort Göttingen, berüchtigt für seine Atomkriege, Reaktoren und für den Hafen der niedersächsischen Atom-U-Boot-Flotte: Vom Plutonium in den Lebensmitteln entsprechend motiviert, gründeten vier verstrahlte Bösewichter im Jahr 2010 ATOMWINTER, um Atomic Death Metal zu hacken. Der Titel des Debütalbums: Jawoll, „Atomic Death Metal“! Gefolgt von „Iron Flesh“ im Jahr 2015. Achtung, Strahlenschutzanzüge nicht vergessen!

TORTHARRY - 25 YEARS IN DEATH METAL  Quarter of a century is a notable milestone for any band, and precisely such an anniversary was reached this year by the Czech death metal icon TORTHARRY, the history of which started in 1991. And has been indeed rich on events: three demos, eight studio albums, inclusion on several compilations and tribute albums, South American tour and countless other shows on Czech and foreign stages, and co-organization of the increasingly popular Czech metal feast MetalGate Czech Death Fest. Such an eventful past call for a heluva celebration!
For that occasion MetalGate Records has just released a re-edition of the complete band discography entitled “25 let mezi nebem a peklem”! 10 discs in total is a special case contain not only all the studio albums of TORTHARRY (eight in total), but also all the early demos (four in total), including one which was never officially released and comes from a time when the band was not yet called TORTHARRY! But that is not all. The re-edition also contains a brochure wherein you can read the band history, check out their complete discography and all the band line-ups through the years, learn surprising facts about the band, and most importantly see rare photos from the band archive. The proverbial icing on the cake is a certificate signed by all band members.
Creating this, thus far probably most ambitious project in the history of MetalGate records, took about a year, during which the early records underwent remastering given their age, the overall format was drafted, rare photos chosen, and the artwork prepared, which was a joint venture of Jaromír “Deather” Bezruč and Martin “Hadgi” Stoklosinski. The result is a truly unique collection that should not be absent from your collection.
A lot can be done in a quarter of a century, which is certainly the case of TORTHARRY. Beside the impressive discography that also contain various compilations and tribute albums on which TORTHARRY participated, there are countless shows behind the band’s belt, club a festival ones, at home and abroad, alongside global icons of the genre (e.g. two shows with the iconic Death, supporting the no less iconic Sepultura, a Brazilian tour with Gorgoroth and Belphegor, or appearance on Brutal Assault). Of course, we must not forget them being co-organizers of the increasingly popular Czech metal feast MetalGate Czech Death Fest that will have its already ninth installment next year in June. In short, the history of TORTHARRY is rich and through this anniversary re-edition, you can live it, music-wise, from the very beginnings to present days!
The band TORTHARRY was formed in August 1991. It's drummer M."Chuan" Jirman and bass guitarist Martin "Mart" Vacek had already met in the band Imago in the year 1984 (they were 13 years old). During the autumn of 1988 came the guitarrist Jarda "Slave"Rubes.
In September 1991 the first TORTHARRY demo tape "Mezi nebem a peklem" ("Between Heaven And Hell") was recorded. In January 1992 the 17 year old guitarist Daniel Pavlík joined the line up of the band and TORTHARRY was this made complete. Another demo tapes have been recorded – "Flames Of
Eternity" in 1992 and a very successful demo "Incriminated" in 1993. Today's exclusive TORTHARRY lyric writer Stefan Lezovic has joined the band in this same year, participating also on this material. At this time the first videoclip "Dirty Mind" was being made in cooperation with Petr Janda (legendary Czech rock guitar player). In the half of 1994 the first album "When The Memories Are Free" was recorded in the "Past" recording studio.
In the year 1996 the band got to know the recording studio "Hacienda" owned by Milos "Dodo" Dolezal (one of the best guitarists in Czechia who studied playing the guitar in LA cooperating with Z.Wilde and
G.M.Dude) for the first time. TORTHARRY recorded here one track for the compilation "10 Years after …A Tribute to Cliff Burton".
In the year 1997 TORTHARRY recorded the second album "Book Of Dreams" in the "Hacienda" studio. The quality of sound helps this record to reach much higher level than the previous ones. This CD was coproduced with Taga Records editorial company and in May 1997 was made the band's second video "Stain".
After appearing on the stages in Switzerland and Portugal (here the band took part on very prestige fest in Penafiel), the band made appearances in Germany, Austria, Poland, Slovakia. TORTHARRY had also made two very interesting and successful mini tours to Lithuania and Latvia.
TORTHARRY appears on almost every important fest in Czech Republic-for example the "Dynamo North Power Jam". TORTHARRY played together with many well known bands, including two shows with the
brilliant DEATH. The second of these two was organized by TORTHARRY management. TORTHARRY played several times with BENEDICTION and SINISTER, and it also played with bands like NAPALM DEATH, BEHEMOTH, VADER, SEPULTURA, BELPHEGOR, GORGOROTH, GRAVE, PESTILENCE, ROTTING CHRIST, HATE, DARK TRANQUILITY, ATROCITY, KRISIUN, FLESHCRAWL, DISBELIEF, DARKSIDE, and many others.
In February 1999 TORTHARRY are going into the "Hacienda" studio in Zirovnice, where recorded their third album called "Unseen". The album is out in May 1999 through new label CBR Records, that belongs to the owner of this studio "Hacienda" Milos "Dodo" Dolezal, which also worked like a producer of this album. This album have tons of positive reviews not only in the Czech Republic, but also in other countries. With a help of CBR Records and NSM Records, together with Wolfgang Sussenbeck, TORTHARRY make contacts in the USA. This cooperation helps them to appear on a sampler "Tribute to Death", which is out in December 1999 through the label DWELL Records in USA. TORTHARRY worked with a song from Leprosy "Pull the Plug" and have more experiences with the US market. The recording of Tortharry's fourth CD takes place in Hacienda Studio during the year 2002, but this time without its firm drummer "Juan". Therefore, two new drummers – a student in an academy of music Milos Maier and a graduate of the same school Roman Lomtadze are invited to help.
On September 28, 2004, a guitar player and a long-standing member Jarda Rubes leaves the band but he is soon replaced (December 2004) by talented Martin Hrubý called "Máca" from a regional band. After a year and half lasting break, which is caused by personnel change, Tortharry comes back to life.
In spring 2006, the band starts to get new material ready for releasing a new CD. A young and promising drummer Jiri "Panther" Rosa is very much involved in the arrangements instead of Juan who cannot participate owing to his heavy workload.
A new CD album "Reborn" is recorded in Shaark Studio in Bzenec during August and September 2006, released on November 16, 2006 by REDBLACK Records.
In September 2006, TORTHARRY recorded the album REBORN. On the same time, the founder member – Juan – announces his leaving of the band due to his working load. "Panther" becomes his logical successor.
In September 2007 we have toured Brazil together with bands BELPHEGOR and GORGOROTH. During the summer 2008, we have recorded songs for our 6th CD that will be called „Round Table of Suicide“. The idea behind this CD is to show different reasons that could lead a man to end his life deliberately. It is not meant to be a promotion of suicide by any means, rather an attempt to understand this complicated human decision.
In the summer of 2009 the band started working hard on a new album “Beneath”. The recording took place in July 2010 in the Sopa studio under the sound supervision of Stanislav Valasek. According to the opinion of many people, the up to now best Tortharry CD has been created there, which has the best sound our CD has ever had. The CD “Beneath” has been released in November 2010 and many concerts were played to support it.
During January 2012 the guitar player Maca left Tortharry. This was a complicated situation for the band, as we were unable, in spite of long searching, to find an appropriate replacement for him. Since then the band has only three members with just one guitarist.
With this line-up we played many concerts in 2012, the most interesting of which has been the tour with Sepultura and our appearances on the Brutal Assault, MetalGate Czech Death Fest and Gothoom Fest festivals.
In September 2012 the band starts working on the new material for 8th CD. In July 2013 TORTHARRY recording material for a new CD in the famous Polish Hertz Studio (There are also recorded BEHEMOTH, VADER, BEHEADED, and other known groups). The band still plays many concerts and in the end of the year 2016 celebrate 25 years in death metal scene.

SYMMETRIC ORGAN - "STATES OF DECAY"  :  Genre:  Death Metal
Germany has a strong and vivid Death-Metal-Underground these days . The map of NRW-Death-Metal got a new clackspot: SYMMETRIC ORGAN from Dortmund. They may seem as a bunch of bloody rookies in the first place. But as soon as you take a closer look you realize: These guys have really left their marks within the scene – live as well as on CDs.
Experience, know how and ruthless hunger build the ground for their very own Idea of highly energetic harsh Grind Death Metal.
They started 2006 as project after major line-up changes of Exposed Guts. Until the split Andreas (Drums) Karsten (guitars) and Philip (Bass, vocals) played all across Germany and Europe to promote „The Way of All Flesh“ which came out in 2003. They shared the stage with bands like Deicide, Monstrosity, Aborted, Master, Waco Jesus, Prostitute
Disfigurement, Isacaarum and God Dethroned. SYMMETRIC ORGAN became serious in 2013 when Ivar joined in (see also Immortal Scorn). The first S.O.-life sign was “World Keeps Falling”, a free 4-track CD-R you to be picked up at gigs.
After a few more shows with bands like Dying Fetus they released their first full-length album “States of Decay”. Sound SYMMETRIC ORGAN play harsh blasting Grind Death Metal by mixing US-Brutal Death Metal, Grindcore and Old School Death Metal. Headbangers, who are into bands like Misery Index, Monstrosity, Dying Fetus, Phobia, Lock Up, Terrorizer, Nasum, Torture Division, Impaled, or Gorefest, should risk their eyes and ears at a Symmetric-Organ-Show.
Recorded 2016 it contains 10 sharp and short songs of blistering harsh Death Metal wihin about 30 minutes time. Our world is rotten in various ways and the album is a soundtrack to those different states of decay.

Indian Metal veterans DEMONIC RESURRECTION have announced the release of their 5th full length album. The album is titled 'DASHAVATAR' which translates to 'the ten avatars of Vishnu', who is the 'the god of preservation' in Hindu mythology. The album is scheduled to release on March 15th 2017 and it will be independently released by the band, who were signed to Candlelight Records for their last two albums. 
The band's vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Demonstealer comments, "Our previous album 'The Demon King' was born from the idea of writing about 'Ravan' who is a demon king from Hindu mythology and while we wrote our own story from scratch it did kind of set the tone of where we want to go from there. My fiance was the one who told me the rather gruesome tale of Narasimha the 'man-lion' avatar of Vishnu which really made me look at mythology rather differently and it made for a great idea to write a song about each of the avatars of Vishnu, since they were very interesting stories. It was pretty obvious then that the album had to be called Dashavatar."
Artwork has been made by Indian artist Reuben Bhattacharya (
Visual Amnesia) who explains it in more detail – 
DEMONIC RESURRECTION (India) - 'Dashavatar' (2017)   :  Genre - Epic Black/Death Metal
One of India's longest running bands, DEMONIC RESURRECTION, are back with their fifth full length album and it's a unique take on the avatars of Lord Vishnu according to Indian mythology. Each song is dedicated to a different avatar and the artwork and lyrics are indicative of the same. 'Dashavatar' follows the band's trademark epic black/death metal style that the band have cemented over the decades. The fans won't be disappointed and at the same time this is an ambitious leap forward. Tasteful solos accentuate the soaring riffs, all impeccably structured to bring to life stories from ancient Hindu mythology. Suitably atmospheric and tempered to perfection, this album holds its own in an era of ever-increasing individuality.
Track list: 
1. Matsya - The Fish
2. Kurma - The Tortoise
3. Varaha - The Boar
4. Vamana - The Dwarf
5. Narasimha - The Man-Lion

New York City Death Metal Outfit CRATOR is pleased to announce the addition of Monty Mukerji (MALIGNANCY, ex-MORTAL DECAY ex-POLTERCHRIST) as the quartet's full-time bass player. Monty's work needs no introduction and is a welcomed addition to the CRATOR ranks. More than just emulating the bass lines of Colin Marston (session player on the album), Monty brings his own chaotic and unique style to the maelstrom. With the lineup now at critical mass, the band is ready to take THE ONES WHO CREATE : The Ones Who Destroy out of the studio and onto the stage.
CRATOR will unleash the maelstrom at its upcoming performance at HOTHFEST 2017 (Jan 14-15). The band will perform on January 14, along with INTERNAL BLEEDING, PYREXIA, MALIGNANCY, DYSENTERY, and several other heavy hitters. Fest details can be found at this location.
CRATOR debut album The Ones Who Create : The Ones Who Destroy is out now and streaming in its entirety at the following location:  https://crator-us.bandcamp.com/album/the-ones-who-create-the-ones-who-destroy
Also featuring drummer John Longstreth (ORIGIN), vocalist Jason Keyser (ORIGIN), and guitarist Jeff Leifer (TENTACLES), CRATOR plays a belligerent anti-form of technical Death Metal. Those seeking a truly fresh, mind-bending, and utterly destructive brand of Tech-Death are strongly encourage to give this band a listen. Ready yourself for the sounds of subterranean howls, clashing machinery, and putrefied harmonies; in other words, the sounds of an accursed death force sharpening its blades! 
The Ones Who Create : The Ones Who Destroy was recorded at
 The Thousand Caves  in Queens, NY. Colin Marston handled all engineering and mastering duties, as well as playing bass on the album. The album was produced by CRATOR guitarist Jeff Leifer.

Talking about the ideas behind the two videos, HELHEIM had this to say: 
"The videos, "Baklengs mot intet" and "Ymr", give the best illustration of the concept behind the new Helheim project, "landawarijaR".  Whilst the theme of "Ymr" is about defining yourself through Norse arts and works - making the metaphorical climb of Yggdrasil in other words, the theme of "Baklengs mot Intet" describes the inner battle, the bottomless despair and endless futility experienced by a Walker of the Way.  "Ymr", therefore,  describes the ascent and the letting go from the top,  whilst "Baklengs mot intet" describes the fall and its possible implications.
"Through these songs Helheim are continuing their exploration and modern interpretation of the darker aspects of the North-European pre-Christian culture, capturing the spirit of the Norse heritage in ways that have eluded both researchers and archaeologists".
"Baklengs mot intet" itself is also available as a digi single on iTunes at
https://itunes.apple.com/no/album/baklengs-mot-intet-single/id1190615351, on Tidal at http://tidal.com/album/68813537 ,  and on Spotify at https://open.spotify.com/album/6r7z2Nj1HiHaeFufVaeaUo and is available for immediate download for anyone pre-ordering either the CD or LP version of "landawarijaR" from https://helheim.bandcamp.com
With music by by H'grimnir and V'gandr,  lyrics by V'gandr and  artwork by H'grimnir, "landawarijaR"   was recorded at the Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen, and produced by Bjornar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) and mastered by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED).  Artists  performing guest vocals on the album include William Hut, Morten Egeland (NARROWHEAD), Pehr Skjoldhammer (ALFAHANNE),  Bjornar E Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) and Ottorpedo.
Tracklisting for "landawarijaR" is as follows:

TRAGIC CAUSE - NO RESTRAINT Die Old School Thrash Metaller mit einem feinen Gespür für Hardcore-Einflüsse haben schon auf ihren ersten Alben gezeigt, dass sie ein Händchen für Headbang-Granaten haben. Jetzt steht Album Nummer drei an und „No Restrain“ schlägt in dieselbe Kerbe wie die Vorgänger und offenbart, dass TRAGIC CAUSE vor allem an den Feinheiten getüftelt haben.
TRAGIC CAUSE wurde 2009 von Alex Hoffman in Hamburg ins Leben gerufen. Der Start der Bandhistorie war von ersten Erfolgen gekrönt. Sowohl das Debütalbum „To Reign Supreme“ (2001) via Human To Dust Records/Twilight und das folgende 2012er Album „Dead Man Walking“ (Human To Dust/TWS) verschafften der Band erste lobenede Worte aus der Szene. So zeigte sich neben Thrash-Metal-Fans auch die Szenepresse begeistert und hervorragende Artikel zum Beispiel im Rock Hard und Legacy folgten. In dieser Zeit spielten TRAGIC CAUSE unzählige Shows und zeigten ihre große Live-Qualität unter anderem in Vorprogramm von Szenegrößen wie Sepultura, Disbelief, Onkel Tom und Cripper. 
Anschließend wurde es still um TRAGIC CAUSE. Bedingt durch mehrere Line-Up-Wechsel und den Umzug von Bandkopf Alex Hoffman in den Schwarzwald standen die Zeichen auf Veränderung. Neu an Bord sind inzwischen Drummer Tommy Hauser und Bassist Simon Schorp. Jetzt, drei Jahre später, meldet sich die Band in veränderter Formation endlich zurück und zeigt sich auf ihrem dritten Album „No Restraint“ hochmotiviert, den bereits eingeschlagenen Pfad auszuloten. Die Kombination aus Old-School-Thrash und Hardcore, gespickt mit brutalen Death-Metal-Elementen und einer drückenden Produktion ist ein Feuerwerk an Headbang-Garanten. Fans von Pro-Pain, alten Sepultura, Pantera, Madball, Slayer oder Jungle Rot werden die wütende wie intensive Mischung auf „No Restraint“ feiern. Seid ihr bereit für eine neue, turbulente Vollgasfahrt im „Schwarzwaldpanzer“? Dann anschnallen, Helm auf und Play drücken … because we will show no restraint – obey!  http://www.metal-promotions.de/
MANGOG - MANGOG AWAKENS  :  File Under: Doom Metal
Mangog is a doom metal band based out of Baltimore, Maryland. Formed by bassist Bert Hall Jr. (Revelation and Against Nature), drummer Stephen Branagan (Revelation, Against Nature and Yet So Far), Major Company’s Bassist Darby Cox and Final Answer’s Vocalist Myke Wells. In February of 2015 Drummer Mike Rix (formally of doom legends IRON MAN) replaced Steve Branagan. After a year of REVELATION and AGAINST NATURE being on hiatus, bassist Bert Hall Jr. (now on guitar and vocals) assembled a lineup to form a dark alliance founded on the copious use of punishingly heavy riffs and dystopian lyrics. The band entered the studio in March 2015 and recorded their debut EP titled Daydreams Within Nightmares”. One year later in 2016 the band completed recording its first full length CD “Mangog Awakens”, and was signed to Argonauta Records.

Florida Death Metal Veterans KILLING ADDICTION have returned with a new four-song EP titled SHORES OF OBLIVION. The EP was recently released on Xtreem Music and can be streamed in its entirety at   https://xtreemmusic.bandcamp.com/album/shores-of-oblivion
On Shores of Oblivion, KILLING ADDICTION exemplifies a style that spans Death Metal (DEATH, POSSESSED, MORBID ANGEL, ATHEIST), Grindcore (NAPALM DEATH, CARCASS), and Thrash (SLAYER, SACRED REICH, KREATOR). Equally heavy is a lyrical approach that deals in themes both political and philosophical.

"Engine of Ruin" promo video:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylQ0JLIh8iM
After its 1989 formation, right in the thick of the influential Florida Death Metal scene, KILLING ADDICTION released a demo and EP prior to the release of its 1993 full-length debut Omega Factor.  After another EP and a split release, the band called it quits in 1998, then reformed in 2006, eventually releasing sophomore full-length Fall of the Archetypes on Xtreem Music in 2010 (also released as a limited-edition, six-song EP). The When Death Becomes an Art 7" EP followed in 2015 (Inverse Dogma Records).
Momentum gained and all cylinders firing, KILLING ADDICTION wasted no time in releasing Shores of Oblivion last fall, but the season was a bittersweet one for the band, as founding member Chad Bailey passed away in September. The band is slowly moving forward in an effort to continue the work and vision he helped create.
Track Listing:
1. Engine of Ruin
2. Cult of Decay
3. Extinction Agenda
4. Into Shadow
Killing Addiction is a veteran deathgrind band hailing from the Florida music scene of the late1980s and early 1990s that spawned dozens of bands in the death metal genre. Their style is based in politically and philosophically charged themes combined with musical influences that span death metal (Death, Possessed, Morbid Angel, Atheist), grindcore (Napalm Death, Carcass), and thrash (Slayer, Sacred Reich, Kreator). 
In 1989, Chris Wicklein and brothers Chad and Pat Bailey formed Killing Addiction, in Ocala,Florida, and thus became one of the few bands of the time to help introduce death metal to the central Florida area. During this time, Killing Addiction released two well-received underground recordings, which eventually led to a full-length studio recording and the recruitment of drummer Chris York in 1992.
The debut full-length, titled Omega Factor, was released on the short-lived American label JL America, and helped solidify Killing Addiction's style as something apart from the typical sound associated with Floridian death metal. Omega Factor eventually became regarded as a minor classic and often earned the band the title of a cult death metal act. To support this recording, the band performed live throughout the north, central, and south Florida areas, with death metal legends such as Obituary, Atheist, Incantation, Brutality, and Resurrection, and early Floridian underground favorites such as Assuck and Paineater.
Upon the demise of JL America, the band independently released the Dark Tomorrow EP in 1994. This became Killing Addiction's last recording during the formative years of Floridian death metal, as Chris York parted ways for personal reasons. The remaining members decided that the band had run its course.  However, before their departure in early 1994, Killing Addiction was voted the Best North Florida Band a the 4th Annual Tampa Bay Metal Awards (September, 1993).
After more than a decade apart Killing Addiction reformed ready to pick up where they left off. Their first studio effort to return to the scene was Fall of the Archetypes (2010), released as a full-length album by Xtreem Music (Spain), and as a limited-edition, six-song EP. In September 2014, Killing Addiction recorded a two-song EP entitled When Death Becomes An Art, released as a 7" EP by Inverse Dogma Records (Italy) in early 2015.
The year 2016 was as successful as it was trying for Killing Addiction. The year saw the release of Shores of Oblivion (EP) by Xtreem Music, but also the personal and creative loss of founding member Chad Bailey, who pass away in September. The band is slowly moving forward in an effort to continue the work and vision he helped create.

ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE (Finland) - 'AMONG THE RUINS'    :  Genre - Stoner Death Metal  :  For fans of - Khemmis, Korpse, Pungent Stench, Amorphis, Warning, Solitude Aeternus, Electric Wizard
ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE from Finland are onto something special. Not content with playing either doom or death metal, the band merge influences from both realms so to speak and create a seamless sound where clean singing and growls both have a place. Essentially ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE play stoner doom but with the heaviness and relative structuring of death metal. Long, winding songs that are at once emotive and crushing enthrall the listener for extended periods of time, while you are left wondering about suitable parallels for this unique band. 'Among the Ruins' is a definitive present-day album, when it's no longer about mimicking your idols but taking the sound forward in a logical, sincere manner. 
Track list: 
1. The Offering 
2. Sledge of Stones 
3. No Return 
4. New Dawn 
5. Absence of Light 
6. Advocates of Deception 
7. Among the Ruins

BLACK OATH - "LITANIES IN THE DARK"    : Genre:  DOOM METAL
“Since then, according to the beliefs of these people, Melissa returns to wander among the living, and what seems incredible is that the persons to whom she appears dies under mysterious circumstances."Continuing along the grievous march with their own style of Cursed Doom-laden Rock which already established the band as one of the best Italian act, Black Oath returns from the other world to cast evil spells and damnation in the form of this 4 tracks mini-album.
Including new unreleased tracks recorded between 2012 and 2015 , and a tribute song to the late Terry Jones from Pagan Altar, crafting “Highway Cavalier” and “Reincarnation” (off The Time Lord ep) as a medley. Black Oath's own well-blended massive and flinty riffs, haunting melodic solos and clean, summoning vocals are here well-preserved, slightly adding a more heavy and gloomy mood to the whole thing. Feel the horror creeping into your soul!

“This is where the living make a religion of respecting the dead. This is where the dead make a religion of preserving their lives”. Purveyors of some of the finest and most cursed Doom Metal, Italy's own Abysmal Grief returns from the shady graveyard to celebrate their 20 years. TERROR FROM HELL is proud to release this luxurious relic containing: “Reveal Nothing...” CD with all the songs from their singles, splits and 7” , including one new unreleased track “Cursed Be The Rite”; the “Mors Te Audit” tape (the infamous second demotape, originally released on a limited edition of 13 pieces, presented with the same cover and layout); metal pin with Abysmal Grief sigil; exclusive poster; t-shirt exclusively designed for this release … and cemetery soil. All these doomed hymns and devotional items are housed in a wooden box strictly limited to 100 pieces. A lugubrious journey from the band's earlier steps into the misty sepulchre in late 90s until 2012. Those who already owns the original items released back then and those who doesn't will be both pleased with such release, which celebrate twenty years of Occult Italian Sound.
Join the ride, the hearse to Borgo Pass begins its dreadful journey at the stroke of midnight.

NEGURĂ BUNGET in 2017 :As another year in the history of the band, the 20th, comes to an end, we take a look back, but also a look ahead to what we have coming in 2017. 2016 was a busy year for Negura Bunget, but 2107 announces to be even more intense.
The triple anniversary (20 years Negura Bunget / 10 years OM / new album ZI) took us on a roller-coaster of special moments, releases, performances in 2016.
In September, we released the new album ZI – the second part of the Transilvanian trilogy. To complete the musical experience of the album we developed a complex visual dimension as well, which included the ZI – movie concept, our highest visual achievement yet.
Hand in hand with the release of the new album we performed an extended Anniversary European Tour, with 49 gigs across the continent, of which 38 gigs were in a row (a premiere even for us).
Around the release of the new album we also developed a crowdfunding campaign meant to help us expand the promotion of our music on a proper world tour. Thanks to your generosity the campaign was a success, and our plans have now good chances to be fulfilled. We have been working on those for years and we are now close of unveiling the first details.
We'll start the new year with some writing sessions for the new album we have been already working on after completing ZI.
Then in spring we'll embark on a tour focused on Northern Europe, on places we couldn't make it to on the 2016 European Tour.
In April/May we're returning to North America extending further our Anniversary tour. Beside USA and Canada, we hope to visit and perform in Mexico as well this time, circling the entire continent.
In the summer of 2017 we plan to finalize our must ambitious project ever, The Transilvanian Trilogy with something truly special.
Finally, the last part of the year we'll dedicate to completing our Anniversary World Tour, hoping to visit some faraway places we haven't reached before: Asia and Australia.
Again, none of the things we achieved or plan to achieve would be possible without you, the people that helped and supported us over the years. We are forever grateful to you all for making our amazing journey possible!
We'll announce the details for our plans gradually, starting in the first days of the new year, so please tune in. May 2017 bring you the inspiration and the force to channel into action.
New album ZI
Our new album ZI was officialy released on September 30 on some amazing editions:
- CD digipak with extra hard cover
- Gatefold LP (180g vinyl, white) incl. special vinyl mastering, poster, printed inner sleeves and PVD protection sleeve (500 copies)

An homage to Winter in conception, an explosion of expressions in perception, OLD MAN'S WYNTAR is an astonishing masterpiece of soundscaping. Its highly complex structure takes the listener on a many-faceted journey into the deepest realms of ice, snow, and darkness.With a unique mix of Black Metal, Avantgarde, Neofolk, Ambient, Neue Deutsche Todeskunst and many other elements and influences, it lures the mind and beckons to venture beyond the borders of its usual conversance. The course of the EP is shapeshifting between incantation, melancholy, desperation, fierce bitterness, harsh coldness and enticing tranquility. Its frostbitten, sharp sound entwines and channels the lyrical concept
and musical fabric in towering manner toward the ecstasy of white, hostile solitude. OLD MAN'S WYNTAR's grave repercussions echo forth a long time after its last note has died away.
This very special, extended version finally turns the EP into the treat of a Full-Length. Enhanced with an additional chapter, the total playing time is advanced to an incredible 74 minutes of allurement that will see the last unfrozen souls enchanted. Within these new chapters, there are various guest appearances - the german neoclassic duo NACHTREICH contributed some string parts, Scorpios Androctonus (CRIMSON MOON, Ex-MELECHESH), Erik Gärdefors (GRIFT), Leshiyas (VIVUS HUMARE), Barth (OUR SURIVIAL DEPENDS ON US), as well as E.H. (WOLFHETAN) sharpening a true MOSAIC.
All music was carefully crafted at the HOUSE OF INKANTATION. For the mastering, none other than Patrick W. Engel (TEMPLE OF DISHARMONY) put the final touches on this unique winter journey. Complete with a thick A5 book, reworked and extended artwork and booklet, as well as full English translations of all lyrics for the first time ever.

Chapter I: ERWECKUNGE & WINTEREN
[engl.: awakening & snowfall]
I. Incipit: Geherre (5.49)
II. Onset of Wyntar (12.49)
III. Im Winter (2.30)

This is probably the last press release of this year but it's a culmination of all that we have achieved as a record label. The struggle is real. Most of you have witnessed the growth of a label that was primarily about Indian bands. Now the tables have turned so to speak and it's time for sub-divisions to get phased out in favour of one strong label as a whole. While region-specific sub-labels for both India and Asia currently exist, the same time next year things will be differently poised. We have no vinyl or tape manufacturing units over here but one way or the other, we are keen to add those formats to our releases in 2017.

Hello, Here’s Gabriel of NIHILISTIC HOLOCAUST.I have started a new webshop for industrial/ noise/ grindcore/ experimental stuffs.
 I received some items in the quoted genres, and it didn’t fit the styles of my main webshop NIHILISTIC (Basically Death metal and old school metal),
So I decided to create also this one to spread the sickness.
Prices are even cheaper… The goal is to spread music, not to make money.
Visit the webshop here:   http://visc.tictail.com
Of course NIHILISTIC Distro is still active and regularly updated:  http://nihilisticdistro.tictail.com

Australian Death Metal quintet IN DEATH have released the official music video for "Godzilla," a track from forthcoming debut album THE DEVIL SPEAKS. The video was filmed and edited by Wilson Bambrick. Check out the video premieres from No Clean Singing and Zero Tolerance at the links below.

The Devil Speaks is targeted for a February 2017 release. Album release details coming soon. Stay tuned!
Vigorously honing their craft as a live act since August 2008, two crucial elements have developed within the band that now form part of the unofficial band ethos: Tight performances packaged with energetic delivery. The result can only be described as a whirlwind of energy punctuated by an intensely accurate technical punch.
IN DEATH combine overwhelming power and groove with subtle technicality and some unexpected twists to deliver a package that can not only cause frenzy among seasoned metal-heads, but also bring new fans to the metal genre with horns held high and banging heads.
IN DEATH... now established as a force to be reckoned with, is growing not only in stature, but as creative artists. The band's debut full length album features more varied influences compared to the Thanatos and self-titled EPs.. Some new material has a more pronounced progressive side, which is a natural progression as artists grow, but the band is always mindful of never letting the ever growing fan base down. There are certain things that must be expected when you come to an IN DEATH show, and they want to give the punters what they paid for! In this case, Death metal with a groove so intoxicating, you just can't help but bang your head!
IN DEATH.. Is forging their own path. Jump on board or be left in their wake!

EPPING FOREST – “LEBABVOID “  :  Genre: Blackened Death Metal
In the beginning there was nothing. The sky had no name. The earth had no name and no god existed. Thus begins a new journey through 10 tracks and all their darkest Sumerian mythology guided by the Portuguese Death/Black metallers Epping Forest through their new album LEBABVOID, the highly anticipated follow up to 2008's “Everblasting Struggle”.
LEBABVOID, was recorded by core band members Azrael, MysticCosmos (ex-CORPUS CHRISTII) and Menthor (ENTHRONED, NIGHTBRINGER, LVCIFYRE, ex-CORPUS CHRISTII). This release also introduces a new member to the lineup, notably Trevash. The recording took place at Morbivs Studios and drums were recorded at HellBlast Studios, London. Produced by Cristiano Gomes and MysticCosmoS at Morbivs Studios. Conceptually, LEBABVOID focuses on the similarities of the mythological universes from the different ancient civilizations. It takes the Sumerian myths as a background for a brand new universe, giving birth to newly refurbished deities and myths. LEBABVOID goes through nine gates and lasts twelve times twelve sars, from Origin to Apocalypse. It begins with the first great battle and the victory of Gallurk over Gallumat followed by the creation of the first human generation, Gallurk's betrayal and his escape; Khanjinn’s curse and heal through incestuous intercourse, triggering a latent dualism and inner conflict between good and evil within Alshkigal; the fall of Alshkigal causing the linguistic division and a forecast of the apocalypse: the return of the deities for the Final Battle. But something has failed, according to the divine plan. Gallurk and Gallumat died at the close of the Final Battle and left us alone.
Produced and Mastered by Cristiano Gomes (Morbius) and MysticCosmoS. Cover artwork DONN, layout by Patricia M and photography André Henriques.
Line-up:
Azrael – Vocals and Lyrics (Morbius, ex-PsychotekTrauma)
MysticCosmoS - Guitars (ex-Dark Mass ex-Corpus Christii)
Trevash – Bass and Backing vocals (ex-Mavorte, ex-Viingrid, ex-Morte)
Menthor – Drums and Percussion (Enthroned, Nightbringer, Lvcifyre, Necrosadist, Grimfaug, Morbius, ex-Corpus Christii etc)
Tracklist:

ET MORIEMUR - "EX NIHILO IN NIHILUM"   : Genre:  Doom Metal
The Czech existential doom metal band Et Moriemur was founded in February 2008 in Prague. Featuring ex-members of Czech seminal doom metal acts Dissolving Of Prodigy and Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy and members of fellow doom/black group Self-Hatred, the band to this day released an EP (Lacrimae Rerum, 2009, self-released), its debut full-length album (Cupio Dissolvi, 2011, Parat prod.) and Ex Nihilo In Nihilum (2014, Solitude productions). The long out of print Lacrimae Rerum EP was re-issued in 2015 as a digipack strictly limited to only 100 copies with 2 exclusive bonuses by Russian GS Productions.
The first album received several positive reviews and Et Moriemur ranked second in the 2011 edition of the New Artist of the Year Czech rock/metal Břitva publicists awards, while the second album was voted among the three best Czech metal albums of 2014 in the Czech music awards Anděl issued by the Czech Academy of Popular Music. The band is currently working on its third release due out in 2017.
Et Moriemur also appeared in three compilations – Institut černého kovu, a tribute CD to the Czech black metal legend TÖRR, Doom Metal Front zine compilation “Eastern Doomination” and a tribute album to the Czech doom metal masters Dissolving Of Prodigy.

++EVOKED signed with F.D.A. RECORDS++ Today we're really proud to announce the signing with German crypt crawlers EVOKED.
Bonesaw & Artilleratör said: „We are proud and thankful for the opportuniy to release some putrid, blood soaked death metal in collaboration with FDA Records.“
The debut full length will be released in 2017, highly recommended for fans of Morgoth „Cursed“ album mixed with Scandinavian and American classic Death Metal influences.
EVOKED was formed by „Bonesaw“ in the middle of 2013, though the idea and a couple of riffs already existed long before. Later that year „Artilleratör“ joined to play drums and soon first rehearsals were done.
In January 2014 the demo „Return Of The Dead“ was recorded in „Hellforge Studio“ by Marco Brinkmann, who also pulled the bass strings on the record.
German underground label „Go Fuck Yourself Productions“ unleashed the demo on tape, limited to 150 copies in april 2014. The same year first live shows were played in which „Kremator“ served as live/session member on bass guitar.
In the follwing year a lot of gigs all over Germany were played and even stages in the Netherlands and Belgium were destroyed. Along that time new material was written so that in late 2015 EVOKED recorded 5 live tracks at Go Fuck Yourself Studio which were released on the EP „Lifeless Allurement“ in August 2016 with an artwork done by Putrid Matt (Putrid Gore Art).
„Lifeless Allurement“ is available on 12“ vinyl at the FDA Records online shop:

ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE (Finland)
ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE from Finland are onto something special. Not content with playing either doom or death metal, the band merge influences from both realms so to speak and create a seamless sound where clean singing and growls both have a place. Essentially ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE play stoner doom but with the heaviness and relative structuring of death metal. Long, winding songs that are at once emotive and crushing enthrall the listener for extended periods of time, while you are left wondering about suitable parallels for this unique band. 'Among the Ruins' is a definitive present-day album, when it's no longer about mimicking your idols but taking the sound forward in a logical, sincere manner.

THE FUROR (Australia) -
'CAVALRIES OF THE OCCULT'    :  Infernal Black/Death Metal
THE FUROR from Australia prepare an explosive concoction of death, black and thrash metal and the result is scathing to say the least. Drumming phenomenon Dizazter is a part of Singaporean legends IMPIETY and not only does that have an influence over here, he's taking it to a different extreme. Mind-boggling drumming aside, his skills with guitars too are no less impressive and he has laid down all the songs for this album. Aided by Hellhound and The Grand Impaler, THE FUROR whip up a storm of biblical proportions. From start to finish, the album is absolutely unforgiving but it has its share of clever variations and deft tempo changes without derailing the entire momentum. 'Cavalries of the Occult' will go down as one of the most venomous albums of its time.

HENRY KANE
(Sweden) - 'DEN FORSTORDA MANNISKANS RIKE'  :   Ripping Crust/Death Metal
From Jonny Pettersson of WOMBBATH comes HENRY KANE, a ferocious slab of crusty Swedish death metal like no other. Rarely before has death metal been so vigorously channelled via the template of crustcore, leaving it infected with rabid fervour few can muster up the courage to withstand. This not only blends genres but lends to it an atmospheric quality fostered by an emotional undercurrent. Amidst slabs of cascading concrete, you have faint but poignant melodies making an appearance, changing the landscape of this expression. Nostalgic yet amplified to modern day aggression, HENRY KANE is the future of Swedish death metal and crust, a marriage made in a perfect post-apocalyptic world.

GOATBLOOD  - VENERATION OF ARMAGEDDON  DP065 | CD | DIGITAL
Die geplante Veröffentlichung des Albums fällt nicht zufällig auf den Weihnachtsabend 2016: Dunkelheit Produktionen präsentiert dann das sehnlich erwartete zweite Album der Deutschen Truppe GOATBLOOD, „Veneration of Armageddon“. In den letzten fünf Jahren hat dieses mit Ketten und Munition behangene Duo sehr aktiv den Metal-Untergrund mit ihrem angriffslustigen Stil bestialischen Black/Death Metals verschmutzt. Eine Handvoll Demos und eine Split wurden vor dem ersten, folgenschweren GOATBLOOD-Album, „Adoration of Blasphemy and War“ (2015), ausgekotzt. Völlig angemessen betitelt erhob „Adoration of Blasphemy and War“ die Band nachhaltig in die internationale Aufmerksamkeit, und bewies, dass neue, raue Veränderungen am rigorosen Vorbild des bestialischen Metal immer noch möglich sind. 
Wie auch immer, mit ein paar darauffolgenden Splits ist nun die Zeit reif für das zweite GOATBLOOD-Album, das ebenfalls passend mit „Veneration of Armageddon“ betitelt wurde. Wo „Adoration of Blasphemy and War“ bereits an die Grenzen ging und den (un)willigen Zuhörer bestrafte, geht „Veneration of Armageddon“ mit einem barbarischen Grinsen noch einen Schritt weiter. Über 18 Tracks in etwas mehr als 36 kurzweiligen Minuten explodieren GOATBLOOD mit ihrer pulsierenden, ekelhaften Wildheit, von der es keine Atempause gibt, direkt ins Gesicht. Das Album ist klamm und widerlich, mit der Stimmung eines Kerkers voller Meuchler, und peitscht so den Zuhörer in eine höllische, halluzinogene Trance. Und doch, so unbarmherzig all diese Songs auch sind, behält „Veneration of Armageddon“ eine einzigartige, stets schwer fassbare Verfänglichkeit. GOATBLOOD neigen hier so viel zu aufkeimendem Grindcore wie frühen BLOOD, EXTREME NOISE TERROR und DOOM, wie auch zu Einflüssen von BLASPHEMY, BEHERIT und ARCHGOAT. 
Mit anderen Worten: Alles, womit „Adoration of Blasphemy and War“ sich bei den treuen Diehardern beliebt machte, wird auf „Veneration of Armageddon“ zu weiteren Extremen angehoben – und darüber gleichzeitig extrem gut erfassbar. Entweiht die Geburt des landsteichenden Bastards mit „Veneration of Armageddon“! (Text von Nathan Birk)

NEBIRAS - THE GREAT RITES  DP075 | VINYL | DIGITAL
Nach über 18 Jahren wird eine wichtige Veröffentlichung des asiatischen Black Metals endlich neu aufgelegt, und erscheint nun erstmals auf Vinyl. Wir finden, es ist Zeit, dass die „The Great Rites“-EP von NEBIRAS die Aufmerksamkeit bekommt, die sie verdient hat.
Sobald die Plattenspielernadel das pechschwarze Vinyl zum ersten Mal berührt, wird man schlagartig in eine Zeit zurückversetzt, als der Black Metal definiert wurde. Kalter Hass trifft auf surrende Gitarren und eine Atmosphäre, die unverwechselbar ist. Sofort wird klar: Das hier ist eine achtzehn-minütige Lehrstunde, wie sie eigentlich nur von Black Metal Bands der zweiten Phase kreiert werden konnte und von der sich viele heutige skandinavische Bands inspirieren lassen sollten. 
Vermutlich steigen auch gerade feine Nebelschwaden aus eurer „A Blaze in the Northern Sky“ auf, denn Fenriz von DARKTHRONE hat bereits sehr früh die Qualität dieser Band erkannt und NEBIRAS namentlich im Booklet des Kultalbums verewigt. Dass Bandkopf Agathos Daemon kein Unbekannter in Norwegen war, zeigt sein früher Briefwechsel mit Euronymous. Unüberhörbar ist, dass diese beiden Kontakte auf das Klangbild von NEBIRAS abgefärbt haben, denn ein ums andere Mal fühlt man sich direkt nach Norwegen versetzt. Aber nicht nur mit den skandinavischen Größen hielt Agathos Daemon regen Kontakt, sondern viel mehr mit der gesamten europäischen Black-Metal-Szene, als sie noch im Entstehen begriffen war, so auch mit SAMAEL und ROTTING CHRIST.
Als Kopf hinter dem Watchtower Fraternity Zirkel, dem malaysischen Pendant zum norwegischen Black Circle, hielt Agathos Daemon die Fäden in der Hand und formte mit RATOR, CONQUEROR (Mal) und BAZZAH eine starke Szene.
Besonderer Dank gilt Wan Syamsul vom malaysischen Deadhead-Zine sowie Afterlife Productions, der diese Veröffentlichung überhaupt erst möglich gemacht hat. Dunkelheit Produktionen wird sich dieser Aufgabe mit dem nötigen Respekt annehmen. Gewidmet wird diese Veröffentlichung dem früheren Gitarristen Y. Occultust, der zwei Jahre vor der Erstveröffentlichung bei einem Autounfall verstarb. 
Dieses wichtige Stück asiatischer Musikgeschichte wird als 180g schweres Vinyl zusammen mit einem farbigen A2-Poster in einer Auflage von 500 Stück erscheinen. Die ersten 150 Kopien werden Sammlerstücke in blutrotem Vinyl, die restlichen 350 Einheiten erscheinen in klassischem schwarz. Die B-Seite enthält keine Musik, sondern ist mit einem okkulten Emblem bedruckt, das die Aura von NEBIRAS gebührend würdigt.

News von NOIZGATE und DEAFGROUND RECORDS :
Hello again, da sind wir wieder. Gerade noch auf Festivals geschwitzt und geschwatzt und nun kann man schon singen unterm Baum und den Himmel mit Krach und Farben füllen. Alle Jahre wieder. Und es kommt einem immer schneller vor. Das kommt vielleicht auch von diesen kleinen kurzweiligen Freuden, die man viel mehr in den Fokus rücken und fest in der Erinnerung einschweißen sollte, die aber oft viel zu schnell in den Hintergrund rücken. Konzerte zum Beispiel oder mit Freunden über Musik reden . Halt einfach mal auf die guten Sachen schauen. In dem Sinne frohes Schaffen und bis zum nächsten Jahr.
NOIZGATE RECORDS präsentiert sich jetzt online in einem neuen Gewand. Nach langer, harter Arbeit ist die Webseite überarbeitet und modernisiert. Und für die Shopper gibt es den aufgepeppten Deafground Webshop. Aussehen ist nicht alles, es kommt auf die inneren Werte an - ist zwar richtig, aber es fetzt schon, wenn auch das Auge Grund zur Freude hat. Und wenn dann noch die Handhabung und die Funktionen richtig gut sind, ist es ein Fest. Ja,
fast wie über Weihnachten freuten wir uns, als wir Mitte November endlich so weit waren und allen unsere neue schöne Webseite unter www.noizgate.com präsentieren konnten. In frischem Glanze findet man nun alles was man wissen will über Bands und Label und das sogar auch auf Englisch. Gespickt mit direkter Verknüpfung zu allen möglichen Kommunikations- und Konsumkanälen wie Facebook, Youtube oder Spotify.
Und wo wir gerade beim Konsum sind – unser herrlicher Deafground Webshop ist auch online. Dort kann man alle musikalischen Werke erwerben,die je bei NOIZGATE oder Deafground rausgekommensind. Dazu gibt es noch grandiose Musik in Form von 3rd Party Releases und natürlich zauberhaft wunderhübschen Merch. Das ist doch mal was.
Wir sind überglücklich mit dem Ergebnis und Machen kleine Glückshopser immer, wenn wir uns die Seiten anschauen. Besonders traumhaft ist es natürlich, wenn auch viele andere vor Glück hopsen können, weil sie die Seiten so super fi nden, also schaut vorbei und verbreitet die frohe Kunde.
Es gibt ja immer was Neues, wenn man mit so vielen talentierten Menschen zu tun hat. THE DISASTER AREA haben sich zum Beispiel gerade passend zur Weihnachtszeit überlegt, sich mal von einer ruhigeren Seite zu zeigen und hauen mit „ALRIGHT“ einen neuen Song raus der sich durchaus auch unterm Weihnachtsbaum hören und - Achtung- auch sehen lässt. Das Ganze gibt es nämlich mit heimeligem Video - beruhigend schön.
Besonders toll: WATCH OUT STAMPEDE werden Anfang 2017 Ihr drittes Studioalbum veröffentlichen. Die Platte trägt den Titel SVTVNIC und wird am 17.03.2017 (VÖ) exklusiv bei NOIZGATE Records erscheinen. Auf ihrem neuesten Werk befassen sich die fünf Bremer Jungs abermals mit dem realen Irrsinn, der einem tagtäglich aus bunten Bildschirmen entgegenschlägt. Das Resultat sind die zehn vielleicht brutalsten Songs, die die Fünf bisher in die Welt gesetzt haben: Wütende Gitarrenwände kämpfen gegen atmosphärische Streicher und das Zusammenspiel von Drums und Bass sorgt für einen kompromisslosen Groove. Laut Sänger Dennis Landt, ist SVTVNIC damit das bisher „härteste und melodischste Album“ der Band. Ein Grund mehr, sich auf’s neue Jahr zu freuen.
Und nun noch zu unseren MAJOR ERD Jungs. Die machen nämlich was ganz Feines und hauen schon seit dem 01.12 jeden Tag ein unterhaltsames Stück Kultur über Facebook raus. Wer es nicht gesehen hat, sollte es unbedingt nachholen.
Es sind ein paar Schätze dabei. Und da das ganze ja in Manier eines Adventskalenders aufgebaut ist, gibt es am 24. 12.2016 um 12:00 Uhr mittags natürlich eine fette Überraschung, also unbedingt „einschalten“ und glücklich sein.

Werte Mitstreiter! Was macht man nach 20 Jahren on the road und immer noch Lust auf mehr?  Nach 20 Jahren in verschiedenen Bands, die zum Teil in ganz Europa unterwegs waren.  Nach 20 Jahren Gitarrenmusik von Death Metal bis Rockabilly und Country.  Nach der Mitarbeit an acht Veröffentlichungen, wenn Schreibtisch und Pocketrecorder immer noch voll mit Ideen und Songs sind.
Man gründet eine neue Band!
"Man" ist in diesem Fall Thomas Fischer (Viu Drakh, Headless Horsemen, Country Trash, Barracudas). Und der Name der Band lautet REUZE.
Assoziationen mit einem dem Angler vertrauten Gegenstand sind gewollt, da Thomas diesem scheinbar recht erfolgreich ausweichen konnte.
Nach umfangreicher Vorbereitung und Demoproduktionen, die zusammen mit Freund und Produzent Hannes Scheffler (u.a. Baby Universal) durchgeführt worden, konnte Thomas seine langjährigen Mitmusiker Mario Gieseke (S.I.T.C., Headless Horsemen, Trouble Kid, Klabusterbären) und Markus Glombik (Barracudas) für das Projekt gewinnen.
Nach ein paar Testläufen, bei denen das Material auf Livetauglichkeit geprüft wurde, entschied die Band, das Studio zu entern und das Debüt "COME ALIVE" einzuspielen. Das Ergebnis ist ein rauer Bastard irgendwo zwischen Turbonegro und frühen Danzig, Metal und Punk´n´Roll.
Nach Sichtung ihres gesamten Materials will die Band "Come Alive" als ersten Teil einer Tetralogie verstanden wissen, deren Teile sich immer mit einem besonderen Thema auseinandersetzen…..mehr wird nicht verraten, es ist Zeit für "Come Alive".

Neoclassical Power Death Metal with Trumpet, Saxophone, other wind instruments and grind. Lets listen here new release: UPHEAVAL!  Atmosphere of South American Fiesta, Russian and North African Battlefields...the Hungarian Ancestors are back!
BLOODRAINBOW was formed in 2002 with clear conceptions and visions from the beginning. Bloodrainbow’s metal alloy consisted of the brutality of Florida’s death metal and the melodic leads of the Scandinavian (Gothenburg) bands. Bloodrainbow debuted 2003, from that time they’re gigging in Hungary and abroad. In the same year Bloodrainbow released two albums: first the two track single ‘Gateway to the Ancient Grounds’ and second the four track EP ’In the Depths of Pangeas Ancient Caves’, which were the basics for the ‘Lethal Message’ album (released 2004). Curiosity of ‘Lethal Message’ was the thick sounded remake of the Iron Maiden’s song ‘Flight of Icarus’. In Spring 2005, Bloodrainbow began to arrange their second full album, which contained more complex-structured songs. 
All of the old pictures here:
https://www.facebook.com/Bloodrainbow-1406121106302515/
During the next 3 years, Bloodrainbow played many gigs, including 2004’s Undead Extreme Metal Festival with Vader, 2005’s Undead Extreme Metal Festival (June) with Dissection and Rotting Christ. A few months later, Bloodrainbow played with Vital Remains. The next year (2006) in May the band played in Poland and Czech Republic. Summer 2006, Bloodrainbow signed a contract with Vic Records from the Netherlands, which contained the release and promotion of ‘Smelteries of Damnation’, to be released 2007. The album cover art and booklet is done by art master Hjules (Gravedigger, Sin of Kain, Annihilator, Memory Garden). One of their tracks, ‘ Family in Coma’, was featured on the Hungarian Metal Hammer Magazine’s extra CD, March 2006. The same year this song was added to the free CD of UK’s Terrorizer Magazine celebrating its 150th issue. Bloodrainbow shot their first video winter 2006/2007 for the track; ‘Death Grind Renaissance’ from the ‘Smelteries of Damnation’ album. The album will have a multimedia section containing that video clip.
After 10 years here is the new album: BLOODRAINBOW UPCOMING ALBUM: UPHEAVAL (2016)

Lacerated Enemy Records has a knack for discovering some of the finest bands in the style and this one is no different.

QUINTESSENZ - "TO THE GALLOWS"   :  Genre:  Black Metal
In 2010, Quintessenz was formed as a one-man-project by Genözider.(Bulldozing Bastard,Vulture,Luzifer). After the first Demo in 2011. The First EP under the banners of „Evil Spell Records“, namely „Okkult Metal Spell“ from 2012, was a contiunuation to this kind of Metal . Rough sound, simple Riffs,
Fuck-off-attitude! In 2013 the first Album „Back to the Kult of the Tyrants“ comes out and was a complete dedication to the „First Wave of Black Metal“ Bands like Venom,Celtic Frost and Hellhammer.
The new Album „To the Gallows“ goes one step further and is more melodic.The development results in more complex song structures, many details in songwriting and surprises the listener with unawaited elements that gives an in depth experience. . They  ́ve added a lot of influences from classical heavy metal this time full of variety in the songs which are often hymnic melodic, but also aggressive without denying their roots.

Kraft, Erhabenheit, Aufrichtigkeit - FERNDAL unterschreiben bei Einheit Produktionen :  Es kommt nicht häufig vor, dass eine neu gegründete Band innerhalb weniger Monate einen Plattenvertrag verzeichnen kann, ohne dass von ihr vorher auch nur ein Ton an die Öffentlichkeit gedrungen ist. FERNDAL, eine erst im April ins Leben gerufene Black Metal-Band, hat das geschafft und im November einen Deal mit Einheit Produktionen unterschrieben. Das Quintett aus dem westfälischen Münsterland, in dem unter anderem auch die EIS-Mitglieder Alboin und Abarus aktiv sind, fasziniert durch eine einzigartige Klangwelt: Neben dem Violoncello als gleichberechtigtem Instrument neben den Gitarren verwebt die Band Einflüsse von Darkthrone bis Windir, von Beethoven bis Arvo Pärt und von barocker Anmut bis zu romantischer Melancholie in einen Schleier als purer Black Metal-Aggression. FERNDAL werden 2017 erstmals live zu erleben sein, unter anderem auf dem Ragnarök-Festival. Das Debütalbum "Ferndal" erscheint im April 2017 bei Einheit Produktionen und wird durch ein Artwork von LUX DIVINA-Sänger Norax veredelt. Ein erster Teaser ist hier https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koZ1MN5Rflc zu bestaunen.   www.ferndal.de

WATCH OUT STAMPEDE werden Anfang 2017 Ihr drittes Studioalbum veröffentlichen! 2011 in Bremen gegründet, konnte das Post-Hardcore-Quintett seit seinem 2014 bei NOIZGATE Records erschienenen Debüt-Album REACHER inzwischen zahlreiche Erfolge verbuchen: So folgte 2015 mit TIDES bereits das Zweitwerk und 2016 begeisterten die Fünf beim Wacken Open Air oder dem Reload Festival. Denn bei WATCH OUT STAMPEDE treffen knallende Breakdowns und wütende Shouts auf poppiges Songwriting und glasklare Refrains. Das bedeutet Live literweise Schweiß auf der Bühne und Nackenschmerzen am nächsten Tag!
Ihr drittes Studioalbum werden WATCH OUT STAMPEDE zu Beginn des kommenden Jahres vorlegen: Die Platte trägt den Titel SVTVNIC und wird am 17.03.2017 (VÖ) exklusiv bei NOIZGATE Records erscheinen. Rund anderthalb Jahre nach TIDES ist die Welt nicht weniger stürmisch geworden. Und so befassen sich die Bremer auf SVTVNIC abermals mit dem realen Irrsinn, der uns tagtäglich aus bunten Bildschirmen entgegenschlägt. Das Resultat sind die zehn vielleicht brutalsten Songs, die die Fünf bisher in die Welt gesetzt haben: Wütende Gitarrenwände kämpfen gegen atmosphärische Streicher und das Zusammenspiel von Drums und Bass sorgt für einen kompromisslosen Groove.
'SVTVNIC ist gleichzeitig das härteste und melodischste Album, das wir bisher geschrieben haben: Noch nie haben wir so draufgeknüppelt. Gleichzeitig arbeiten wir mehr als zuvor mit Hintergrundharmonien wie Streichern oder Pianos, haben unseren Sound größer gemacht und eine neue Fülle erreicht. Im letzten Jahr gab es nicht viel Gutes auf der Welt zu berichten. SVTVNIC führt diesen ganzen Wahnsinn ad absurdum', verrät Sänger und Gitarrist Dennis Landt.
Ich wünsche Euch weiterhin eine gemütliche Vorweihnachtszeit und schöne Feiertage! Mit besten Grüßen aus Bielefeld, Eure Annelen

Complete with unrelenting blasphemies, bringing technical style riffs alongside merciless blast beats and putrid guttural vocals. With bestial tracks like "Malignant Divinity" and "Angel Eater," the band is unleashing a demonic entity that fans of all death metal can feast upon. Be on the lookout for this sacrilegious offering of godless brutality!

ANGOG - MANGOG AWAKENS  : Doom Metal
Mangog is a doom metal band based out of Baltimore, Maryland. Formed by bassist Bert Hall Jr. (Revelation and Against Nature), drummer Stephen Branagan (Revelation, Against Nature and Yet So Far), Major Company’s Bassist Darby Cox and Final Answer’s Vocalist Myke Wells. In February of 2015 Drummer Mike Rix (formally of doom legends IRON MAN) replaced Steve Branagan. After a year of REVELATION and AGAINST NATURE being on hiatus, bassist Bert Hall Jr. (now on guitar and vocals) assembled a lineup to form a dark alliance founded on the copious use of punishingly heavy riffs and dystopian lyrics. The band entered the studio in March 2015 and recorded their debut EP titled “Daydreams Within Nightmares”. One year later in 2016 the band completed recording its first full length CD “Mangog Awakens”, and was signed to Argonauta Records.

SUCHTHAUS RELEASES "BEST OF" ALBUM - WITH A TWIST . When bands release a "Best Of" album, you normally expect that they have a significant past body of work, and that they have chosen to feature tracks that are familiar to most of their fans.  But Norway's SUCHTHAUS is far from being the usual sort of band, so it will come as no surprise to anyone who follows them that their "Best Of" is not quite what you would expect.
For a start SUCHTHAUS has only ever released one full-length album - 2011's "The Darks Side and the Bright Side", which included some prominent guests who you would perhaps not expect to find appearing together on the same album.  Guests such as Maniac  (SKITLIV, ex-MAYHEM),   CURRENT 93’s David Tibet, Fredrik A. Juell  (BURNING RUBBER,  BERSERK BASTARDS) and singer Sibob Jawara .
Since then, any new material has been released as videos on YouTube with artists such as Maniac, SHINING's Niklas Kvarforth and MAYHEM's Hellhammer bringing their own brand of insanity to the disturbing visuals of which SUCHTHAUS is so fond.
So why, exactly, a "Best Of" album from a band whose lineup includes Hellhammer, Ingvar  AD/HD, Fruen and founder Spacebrain?   Spacebrain, who, as well as being a musician, is perhaps best known as a sculptor, and the man behind many, by now iconic, stage sets for bands like MAYHEM, explained:
" No one has heard much from SUCHTHAUS since the debut album was released and there have been rumours that we were working on a second album.  There was actually some truth to these rumours, but, to be honest, we were in no particular hurry.  We are influences by all kinds of cultural and musical genres, and we really wanted to give fans the best possible version we could of Stoner Rock and 70's style Psychedelica, mixed with a solid dose of Nordic dark tones.
"Spending such a long time making an album can test the patience of any musician, so we  came up with the idea of making a "Best Of"  album.  We had enough music to fill a week-long album, so we thought why the hell not just do it?  We picked 13 tracks we feel  will open up your mind and introduce you to  the awkward tones of SUCHTHAUS.  Who knows, we might be the first band to come up with a "Best Of"  album after one single release, and which doesn't include one single previously released track".  
Out on the 12 December on the band's own RollAbiGone label, "The Best Of Suchthaus" was mixed by Spacebrain and Fruen at Spacebrain's studios.  Artwork and photography are by Spacebrain, whilst the German Bunker from a Normandy beach is by D-Dag.

Polish extreme metal band YOUDASH have teamed up with No Clean Singing to stream "Force Guide" a track from their forthcoming album ASTROPHOBIA. While the band's sound is hard to categorize, a good comparison would be a cross between Mr. Bungle, Dillinger Escape Plan and Gorguts.
The site commented that "The entire experience is like jamming a live power line right into the bass of your neck and then dancing in a convulsive seizure. It’s a fiery death metal inferno that’s technically very impressive and flamboyantly exuberant in its conception and execution."

MORDANT (Sweden) - 'DEMONIC SATANIC'  :  Genre - Death/Black/Thrash Metal  :  For fans of - Dissection, Nifelheim, Bolzer, Desaster, Naglfar, Sepulchral Curse, Cemetery Winds, Dawn, (early) Tiamat
Long-running Swedish black/death metal band MORDANT are following the path of DISSECTION and NIFELHEIM, playing sharp, melody-tinged black/death metal but with a gnarly thrashy approach. The album gets even more thrashier and gritter as it progresses, and tosses in a SABBAT cover for good measure. This is a rare instance of the band retaining the Swedish sound while going on to play a blend of at least three styles. The album gets more engrossing with each listen and the flavour is something that will have you coming back for more. To The Death Records have released one of the best albums in this unique style and it's definitely worth looking into. 
Track list: 
1.    Vengeance from the Dark    03:25

January 2017 will see the worldwide release of the EP VENGEANCE OF THE SLAIN by FORSAKEN AGE on Metal Hell Records! Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand FORSAKEN AGE is traditional heavy metal for fans of classic acts like MANOWAR, RUNNING WILD, HELLION, DORO…
Formed in 2009 FORSAKEN AGE cast their eye over a scene that was quick to forget the very essence of Heavy Metal and it’s origins. Heavy Metal was fast becoming a memory from a forgotten age. FORSAKEN AGE made the call for all heavy metal warriors to stand together, make their mark and battle to keep true metal alive
FORSAKEN AGE released their debut album “Back From Extinction” in 2012, signaling the band’s intention and desire to honor only the true warriors of steel. This was followed by two New Zealand tours and a tour with Ripper Owens. From there the band went from strength to strength as a live act supporting Nightwish, Korpiklanni, Alestorm and many Australian touring bands. So far having played a number of festivals in New Zealand and Australia including Steel Assassins – True Metal Festival. The road will call again in 2017.
2017 will see the worldwide release of the EP Vengeance of the Slain on Metal Hell Records on CD & Digital formats. True to form the EP is traditional heavy metal - sounding a call to metal warriors everywhere!

BOLESNO GRINJE - "GRD"  :  Genre:  Death Metal/Grindcore
The beginning of Bolesno Grinje was back in the year 2000, when two enthusiasts Hoc (Anti Otpad) and Rio (Desinence Mortification) started rehearsing with the idea to make something new on the Croatian underground scene.
Soon after they were joined by Angeri (SMC) on vocals and Mrki (Screaming Vagina) on guitars.
In this lineup the band recorded first full lenght album "Pobjeda je nasa" (released later in 2005 by EBM and Cryptas Records), and the songs for split LP with Sod'n'dan. They did a lots of shows in Croatia and Slovenia.
In 2002 lineup was changed a bit, Mrki left and Jule (Anti Otpad) replaced him on guitar.
The band was very active in song writing, from 2006 to 2009 they made 3 full lenght albums: "Od nesvijesti do grinda", "Nitko nas ne vidi...ali mi ipak postojimo", "Krvave ruke...krvavi novac", also one EP: "1 Mozak", and one split CD.
In this lineup band played a lots of shows, the one that should be mentioned is a show on the legendary freak friendly Obscene Extreme Fest in 2006.
In 2010 the lineup was changed again, Rio left and was replaced by Luze on drums. This lineup recorded everything from the 5th full lenght "Grinje!Grinje!Grinje!" until now.
The big curse of Bolesno Grinje was that from 2007 to 2013 some members had a "no entry into EU" restriction, so we couldn't play outside of the balkans for some time!
This album is Bolesno Grinje 8th full lenght.Recorded & mixed at GROBNICA studio. Mastered by Brad Boatright at AUDIOSIEGE. Art by RECTOPUSART.
Line-up: 
Hoc - Bass
Angeri - Vocals
Jule - Guitars

Michigan Blackened Grinders SUNLIGHT'S BANE will release debut album THE BLACKEST VOLUME: LIKE ALL THE EARTH WAS BURIED on February 17 via Innerstrength Records. Formerly called TRAITOR, SUNLIGHT'S BANE has crafted a sound so inherently dark and repulsive that even the sunlight will withdraw and run from it!
 The band is streaming new song "Praise the Venom Shield" and had this to say about it: "It's a song not only about the oppression of people, but the worship of oppression and violence from a controlling establishment or force. It is about not only subservience to control, but the attitude of pleasure in it, those individuals who will kiss the boot stomping into their face and apologize for being in its way while convincing themselves this is the way things have always been and will always be." 
Stream "Praise the Venom Shield"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RO720X1svQ4
 The Blackest Volume: Like All the Earth Was Buried was recorded by Andy Nelson at Bricktop Recordings (Harm's Way, Weekend Nachos, Exalt, Dead In the Dirt) and mastered by Brad Boatright of Audiosiege (Nails, Full of Hell, Integrity, Twitching Tongues).
Track Listing:
1. Praise the Venom Shield
2.  Begrudging Soul
3. From Heaven Wept
4. Curse Diminished Years
5. I Am the Cold Harsh Whispers in Hell
6. Dance of Thorns
7. The Blessed Ivory Tongue
8. No Taste More Bitter
9. With Fear This Love is Given
10. Came No Dawn
11. To Whom I Await
SUNLIGHT'S BANE was started original under the name TRAITOR in 2011 by several friends whose bands had been playing together for years. All members wanted to start a band that would simply strip themselves of the clean and organized approach to aggressive music that had become commonplace and focus on writing truly alarming, frightening and aggressive music. The idea was to combat the complacent attitude of contemporary music, through sound, presentation, and themes in their music, which is what led to the combining genres of abrasive and political hardcore of the 90s with the bleak and nihilistic sound and atmosphere of European black metal. 
 After touring for numerous years around the country, the band slowly began to craft and focus their sound and approach following years of varying influences and visions of what the project should and should not be. Eventually the band in 2015 decided before recording its debut record to essentially reboot the system by changing its name . The band decided that the best way to abridge the old material and band into the new would be to pick an older song title for the new name, setting on the song title "Sunlight's Bane" from their debut EP 
Shadowheart, which they describe as being a description of something so inherently dark and repulsive that even sunlight would withdraw and run from it. It's he feeling they hope their upcoming album The Blackest Volume: Like All the Earth Was Buried on Innerstrength Records conveys in listeners.

THE FLIGHT OF SLEIPNIR – SKADI   Following on the heels of the 2014 album 'V', the 6th full length 'Skadi' shows the Colorado individualists The Flight of Sleipnir more focused and settled. Taking inspiration from earlier recordings which work as the creative drive, they forge their trademark sounds ahead once again in Nordic spiked splendour wrapped in a new life-form. 'Skadi' creates another extraordinary venture, full of extreme metal and polarizing tension. There is a certain fresh simplicity in structure, though the further you delve in, the more complex and soaring it becomes. From pulsing waves of doom & stoner, decorative rock and prog to expanding glances into folk spiked with black metal-esque sparks. Whether you consume it at an intimate campfire or throughout stormy evenings, with ‘Skadi’ they have created one of their most passionate and artistic recordings to date.
'Skadi' was recorded during 2016 and then mixed/mastered by Clayton Cushman. It features the striking artwork courtesy of the band's own David Csicsely, that once again becomes a crucial force in The Flight of Sleipnir's artistic appeal.
Brandnew track "Awaken" can be publicly streamed at this location:   https://youtu.be/RzFnOmG5Aog

THE FUROR (Australia) - 'CAVALRIES OF THE OCCULT'   :  Genre - Black/Death Metal  :  For fans of - Impiety, Behemoth, Belphegor, Ravager, Bestial Winds, Conqueror, Revenge
THE FUROR from Australia prepare an explosive concoction of death, black and thrash metal and the result is scathing to say the least. Drumming phenomenon Dizazter is a part of Singaporean legends IMPIETY and not only does that have an influence over here, he's taking it to a different extreme. Mind-boggling drumming aside, his skills with guitars too are no less impressive and he has laid down all the songs for this album. Aided by Hellhound and The Grand Impaler, THE FUROR whip up a storm of biblical proportions. From start to finish, the album is absolutely unforgiving but it has its share of clever variations and deft tempo changes without derailing the entire momentum. 'Cavalries of the Occult' will go down as one of the most venomous albums of its time. 
Track list: 
1. 30 Year War 
2. Cavalries of the Occult 
3. Death Manifest 
4. Fomes Peccati 
5. Lake of Fire 
6. Rampage Upon the Rational 
7. Second Coming Slaughtered 
8. Storm of Swords 
9. Totaliterror 
Line up: 
Dizazter - Drums/Vocals/Songwriting 
Hellhound - Guitars 
The Grand Impaler - Bass 
Produced by Nizam Aziz of IMPIETY at Studio 47, Singapore.

EDEN WEINT IM GRAB veröffentlichen Konzeptalbum „NA(C)HTODREISE“ Ende März 2017 : Nach zweijähriger Arbeit wird dieser Tage im Berliner Winter-Solitude-Studio dem kommenden siebten Album von Eden Weint Im Grab der letzte Feinschliff verpasst. Der Titel wird „Na(c)htodreise“ lauten und es handelt sich um das erste Konzeptalbum der deutschen Dark-Metal-Band. Die 15 Songs gleichen einer Reise durch das Jenseits und die Unterwelt, ganz wie die „Göttliche Komödie“ des italienischen Dichters Dante Alighieri. Jedes Stück steht für eine Station auf einer imaginären Jenseitskarte. Der Band zufolge soll es härter zugehen als auf den Vorgängern „Geysterstunde I“ (2011) und „Geysterstunde II“ (2014), ohne dass dabei musikalische Überraschungen, die stilistische Vielfalt oder die kammermusikalische Seite der Formation zu kurz kommen. „Na(c)htodreise“ erscheint am 31. März 2017 über Einheit Produktionen/Soulfood. Weitere Details werden in den nächsten Wochen sukzessive bekannt gegeben.   www.edenweintimgrab.de

D.D.R. # 018 REVEL IN FLESH - Emissary Of All Plagues TAPE 
REVEL IN FLESH was formed by Haubersson ex-IMMORTAL RITES in late 2011. The debut album "Deathevokation" was recorded as a duo with long-time comrade Maggesson DAWN OF DREAMS, APOPHIS etc. and was highly acclaimed within the underground scene.
Now by the end of 2016 after 2 years of songwriting and recording REVEL IN FLESH are back with their 4th and probably most melodic album thus far.

DOWNCAST COLLISION ist die Schattenseite der Liebe; es ist das Tief von allem Hoch. Es ist der böse Zwilling, den man heimlich sein möchte! Die düstere und moderne Metal Band Downcast Collision enstand in einer anderen Dimension von Raum und Zeit. Durch Zufall wurden die Mitglieder der Band aus ihrem eigenen Universum herauskatapultiert und sind darauf mit unserem Universum kollidiert. Hier funktionieren die Gesetze der Natur anders, wodurch die Band sich deplatziert und wütend fühlt, was sie in ihrer Musik zum Ausdruck bringen. Gefangen in dieser Welt, ist alles was sie sich jetzt noch erhoffen können, einen Weg zu finden, der beide Welten miteinander verschmelzt. Wie das enden wird, weiß noch Keiner.
Downcast Collision klingt wie eine dunkle Wissenschaft; schwere Killerriffs und ohne Subtilität. Gewagte Songs, die sich mit Themen wie Gewalt, Plagen der Untoten, Visionen von Luzifer, der Ermordung von jugendlichen Schikanierern und sogar einer Reise durch verschiedene Dimensionen auf der Suche nach hellseherischen Fähigkeiten beschäftigen. All das, wobei die Melodien trotzdem eingängig genug sind, um als Ohrwürmer den Weg in die Köpfe zu finden um sie nie wieder zu verlassen. Das Debütalbum RISE UP erscheint am 17. Februar 2017.
TRACKLIST :
01 Overthrown
02 Rise Up
03 Cast Aside
04 Second Sight
05 Bombs Away
06 Scapegoat Warrior
07 Spin Doctor
08 The Seventh Day
09 Photonic
Downcast Collision ist einer der Supports, die SIX FEET UNDER auf ihrer X-MAS IN HELL TOUR 2016 in Deutschland und der Schweiz begleiten werden.

INQUIRING BLOOD veröffentlichen mit ihrem neuen Album „MORBID CREATION“ ein ordentliches Death-Metal-Brett. Das zweite Album der Hannoveraner erscheint am 16.12.2016. 
INQUIRING BLOOD gründeten sich im Jahr 2004 und legten 2005 ihre erste Demo „Fear“ in Eigenenergie vor. Auch im Anschluss waren die Death Metaller aus Hannover nicht untätig, sondern legten mit „Live at TTD Festival“ 2007 ein Live-Album nach. Produziert wurde dieses von Harris Johns. Ebenfalls 2007 folgte die EP „Raping the Silence“, die Herman Frank (Accept/Victory/MoonDoc) produzierte und dank des mächtig groovenden Todesstahls viel Lob nach sich zog. 2010 stand endlich das langersehnte Deübtalbum „Born in a Grave“ an, welches in den Szene-Medien gefeiert wurde, u.a. wurde die Band mit Szenegiganten wie Amon Amarth oder Cannibal Corpse verglichen.  
2015 wurde Kernkraftritter Records auf INQUIRING BLOOD aufmerksam und nahm die Band unter Vertrag. Im ersten Schritt sorgte das Label für eine weitreichende Erhältlichkeit von „Born in a Grave“. Die Band selbst allerdings war längst mit den Arbeiten am Nachfolger beschäftigt – welcher nun fertiggestellt ist! „Morbid Creation“ wurde im Kohlekeller Studio gemixt und gemastert und zeigt, dass die Death Metaller längst nichts an Groove und Wucht verloren haben.
Ein brutales, schnörkelloses und heftig groovendes Album, das dem klassischen Death Metal die Treue geschworen hat. Hin und wieder blicken allerdings Einflüsse aus Black und Thrash Metal durch, die der Musik eine weitere Nuance hinzufügen und „Morbid Creation“ die letzte Durchschlagskraft verleihen. 
Seit ihrer Gründung wurden INQUIRING BLOOD für unzählige Shows gebucht, u.a. im Vorprogramm von BEHEMOTH, KATAKLYSM, ABORTED oder THE HAUNTED – ab sofort ist die Band bereit, mit neuem Material die Bühnen im In- und Ausland in Schutt und Asche zu legen.

Wie wir bereits vor kurzem verkünden durften, sind DEUTSCHER W und PROJEKT MENSCH zurück. Am 09. Dezember wird das zweite Meisterwerk "HERZBLUT" des umtriebigen Wegbereiters der deutschen Gothic- und Horrorpunkszene (mit DER FLUCH) und Kopf der deutschen Punk-Legende OHL erscheinen. Auf diesem Album vereint Deutscher W erneut Kraft, Dunkelheit und lyrischen Tiefgang zu einem einzigartigen, fantastischen Werk.
"MEIN HERZ ist die Essenz aus Schmerz und Schönheit - aus Lust, Leid und Leidenschaft“ Nach den ersten Singleauskopllungen "Dunkelheit" und "Mach mich fromm" gibt es jetzt ein weiteren dunkel-schönen-Auszug: "Mein Herz"! Hört euch den neuen PM-Song jetzt direkt an: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m90x4azRXHc&t=72s
Am 9. Dezember 2016 erscheint mit “Herzblut“ das neueste Werk von PROJEKT MENSCH, mit dem Deutscher W ein weiteres Kapitel in seinem bewegten Musikerleben aufschlägt.
Mit DER FLUCH gilt er als Wegbereiter der deutschen Gothic- und Horrorpunkszene, und mit O H L bildet er seit Jahren die Speerspitze der deutschen Punkbewegung. Auf “Herzblut“ zeigen Deutscher W und seine Mannen, was sie unter Neuer Deutscher Härte verstehen. 
Deutscher W selbst beschreibt “Herzblut” als ein sehr persönliches Werk, auf dem sich nicht nur böse Märchen, sondern auch sehr persönliche Geschichten wiederfinden. Seit ihrem Debutalbum “Seelenfeuer“ bezeichnet die Presse die Musik von PM als Neue Dunkle Härte und trifft damit den Nagel auf den Kopf.

Eiter, Blut und Gedärme AUTOPSY, VITAL REMAINS und KRINGA kommen Leute,  heute erreicht euch die letzte Newsmail vor dem Jahreswechsel. Wir ersparen uns den vorweihnachtlichen Wahnsinn. Versucht die Feiertage zu überleben und rutscht gut ins neue Jahr. Wir hören uns im neuen Jahr. Wer sein Ticket noch nicht hat, kann selbiges wie gewohnt bei www.cudgel.de bestellen. 
Eine große Death-Metal-Legende mit bereits jetzt riesigem Vermächtnis kehrt zu uns zurück - AUTOPSY: Niemand verkörpert Eiter, Blut, Gedärme, Untote, Horror und Gore so gleichermaßen künstlerisch wertvoll und auch abartig wie die Veteranen von der amerikanischen Westküste. Wenn Szene-Urgestein Chris Reifert hinter seinem Schlagzeug trümmert und gleichzeitig seine furchterregende Gurgelstimme malträtiert, befinden sich alle echten Old-School-Death-Metaller im Paradies. Achtung: Exklusive Deutschland-Show!
Und noch eine Legende: VITAL REMAINS vertreten die schnelle Schule des US-Death-Metal. Brutal, technisch anspruchsvoll, aber immer nachvollziehbar hämmern die Amis seit fast 30 Jahren an vorderster Todesmetall-Front.
Österreichs spannendste Black-Metal-Hoffnung der letzten Zeit: KRINGA verbinden die alte Darkthrone-Schule mit der Mystik und den okkulten Elementen neuerer Schwarzmetall-Strömungen und agieren demnach nicht weit entfernt von diversen Bands aus Trondheim und Island. Zwei starke EPs sowie ein Album stehen bislang auf der Habenseite, und live konnten KRINGA ebenfalls bereits einige markante Duftmarken hinterlassen.

Grimy, raucous and catchy, Cryptic Realms' death metal hearkens back to the glory days of early Obituary, Autopsy, Unleashed and Massacre, when the intent was pure and the music was all that mattered. Each band members lends his own influence to the final output, be it the John Tardy-esque vocals or the excellent riffing of the guitarists, this is a memorable and extremely catchy affair, the kind of death metal that we all grew up listening to and reveled in. Cryptic Realms are onto something special, something life-affirming for the die-hard fans, and it's mandatory to give this promising new band a shot if you like this kind of gnarly and groovy old school death metal.

AGGRESSION have been around since the 80s and have unfortunately remained unheralded over the decades, but Xtreem Music has stepped up to not only re-release their classic album 'The Full Treatment' but also put out their brand new one. This album retains the original charm and yet manages to sound relevant today. 'Fragmented Spirit Devils' sounds sufficiently vitriolic and juicy, something which the polished, sterile bands of today fail miserably to achieve. So dig into this fresh slab of old school thrash metal from the masters themselves.

The fifth masterpiece from Poland’s critically acclaimed FURIA will now be available in LP format. The black metal album of this winter will be released on vinyl on 29 December 2016. Pre-order your copy now through the Pagan Records webstore.
In under a month since the release of KSIEZYC MILCZY LUTY, Furia managed to grab the attention of fans and press from all over the world. Ksiezyc milczy luty is the next big step on the road of nekrofolk, which the band have been paving from the very beginning of their inception. This dark, cold and astoundingly beautiful music will finally be available on vinyl.
The LP will be released as a black vinyl, in a standard sleeve with alternative artwork and design. Additionally, it will include a 4-page booklet (30x30cm) and a free download code.
Side A
1. Za cma, w dym
2. Cialo
3. Tam jest tu
Side B
4. Grzej
5. Zabieraj lapska
6. Zwykle czary wieja
Once again recording took place at Czysciec Studio. Mixing duties were fulfilled by the band’s vocalist/guitarist Nihil and mastering by Bartlomiej Kuzniak at Studio 333.
Those familiar with the sounds which Furia create will not be disappointed with Ksiezyc milczy luty. The album continues the band’s trademark “Nekrofolk” sound; however, the lyrical theme takes us to the moon this time. Anyone who claims that black metal may have lost its charm of originality should listen to Furia.
Furia were established in Katowice, Poland in 2003. Their unique take on black metal with elements of folk (dubbed “Nekrofolk”) and abstract poetic themes influenced by the astounding and brutal beauty of their home province of Silesia took Polish black metal to entirely new regions. The band’s music is spiced up with lyrics written by Nihil, who is one of the most gifted Polish artists of the decade. Nocel, the band’s previous full-length, dominated the Polish metal charts when it was released in October 2014 via Pagan Records. No wonder the band are considered to be one of the most influential acts in Poland.

! L A B E L   I S   C L O S E D ! Since December 7th, 2016 DEAD CENTER PRODS is officially closed. Official statement here - https://www.facebook.com/deadcenterprod/posts/1210875275633734
After 13 years of Dead Center Productions activity, we decided to go with the extremely sad decision to stop label activity.
Due to very low sales during last 2,5 years, because of the whole situation in Ukraine etc etc we just unable to run the label anymore unfortunately. In some way digital industry killed physical releases, so hopefully sometime in the future situation will be changed and fans will get back to CDs, Vinyls etc instead of illegal digital downloads, and then we will surely return.
BUT! Fortunately we still extremely busy and successful with our other companies, such like Antichrist Metalzine and Grand Sounds Promotion, so we are not going to disappear from the musical activity. Luckily people still need to read related to music stuff, visit gigs and so on.
In the end we would like to express our hugest gratitude to all Dead Center Productions partners and headbangers from all over the world who supported label during long 13 years!
And of course our huge respect to those bands we have worked with, like WEHRMACHT, Raven, Master ( Paul Speckmann), MOTOR, Apokalyptic Raids. Warhammer, Warhawk Metal Band, Січгарт, Brilliant Coldness - Death Metal, Aggravator, Ungoliantha, Deraign, Wolf Counsel, Capricornus Tenebrarum, Sågverk, Death Above , Ewïg Frost, Empheris and tons others, you were the best guys! \m/
Additionally, since we still have some part of the stock, our official distro on Discogs will be working until we'll sell last CD! - https://www.discogs.com/seller/Deadcenter/profile

SEPULCHRAL CURSE (Finland) - 'AT THE ONSET OF EXTINCTION'   :  Genre - Blackened Death Metal  :  For fans of - Tribulation, Solothus, Bolzer, Krypts, Corpsessed, Lantern, Dissection, Cemetery Winds
Finnish death metal group with members of Solothus have decided to take a step ahead, leaving behind their old school death metal past but not entirely. Sepulchral Curse have weaned on the Scandinavian black metal influences and merged it with their irrepressible Finnish brand of death metal, forging a sound that's steely and unique. Reminiscent of early Convulse, Tribulation, Bolzer, Dissection, Dawn, Naglfar, Demigod and Putrevore all rolled into one, the music is extremely refreshing in its scope, majestic in its drive and lethal in its execution. While old school revivalists are dime a dozen, here's one daring to do something different using the time-tested DNA of Finnish death metal without compromising on the heaviness. Classic-tinged, immaculate, and progressive.
Track list: 
1. Envisioned in Scars 
2. In Purifying Essence 
3. Gospel of Bones 
4. Disrupting Lights of Extinction 
Line up:

FACES OF THE BOG - "EGO DEATH" :  Genre:  Sludge/Psychedelic/Doom
Faces of the Bog was conceived in a dingy practice space in the fall of 2011 in Humboldt Park, Chicago. Their thick, sludgy, groove-oriented sound, while crude at the time, has been the basis for the creation of their music ever since. The band relies heavily on atmosphere and mood to create melodic textures accompanied by crushingly brutal riffs, guiding its listeners through a psychedelic journey all the while.  
DHU Records will be releasing ‘Ego Death’ on 2X LP Vinyl some time around spring of 2017
Line-up: 
Paul Bradfield - Bass
Danny Garcia - Drums/Percussion
Mark Stephen Gizewski - Guitars/Vocals

UR: Reveal New Track “Total Inertia” Off Upcoming EP “HAIL DEATH”   The Polish cold winter has created a new beast. The name of this beast is UR and its primal sounds have been put together under the moniker of Hail Death. The debut EP, Hail Death, will be released via Arachnophobia Records on 15 December 2016 and the first track “Total Inertia” is available now through YouTube.
Stream “Total Inertia” here:
 https://youtu.be/YLOtn3Geoyo
Hail Death track listing:
1. A Dying Star
2. The Tongue of Fire
3. Let the Darkness Come
4. Total Inertia
5. Only Bones Stay Here
6. Infinity
Death is always the end, though it may also be the beginning. This is exactly what is happening in Hail Death. The first strikes of winter frost create the perfect aura for the debut release from UR. Clocking in at nearly 20 minutes, the record thrusts the listener straight into death's cold embrace – a power equally primal, complex and intriguing. This contrast also defines the musical content of Hail Death. The songs which have found their way onto the release are a manifestation of raw and instinct-driven black metal which does not refrain from occasional twists.
UR’s mastermind, Gregor, comments:
“In fact, UR is exactly what all of us have been willing to do for a major part of our nearly 15-year-long musical quest, yet for some reason had been unable to put into effect. UR is a beast, an animal – free, untamed and unpredictable. When we meet at rehearsals, we grab our instruments, fill the glasses with vodka and just play. We do not need any philosophy for something this simple. Neither do we obey any particular stylistic framework, nor limit ourselves to it. The music on “Hail Death” came up quickly and naturally; it is minimalistic, yet thoroughly prepared; full of contrast, yet cohesive.”
UR is composed of members who have contributed in their musical journey to acts such as Bloodthirst or Bloodstained among others. This debut release, however, is the beginning of an entirely new chapter in their careers, as well as their first individual outing. The material was recorded and mixed at Left Hand Sounds studio by Marcin Rybicki (known also for his work at In Twilight’s Embrace and Bloodthirst). The cover art was painted by Krzysztof Sikorski.

SELF-HATRED (Czech Republic) - THEIA   :  Genre - Atmospheric Doom/Death Metal  :  For fans of - Esoteric, Tyranny, Shape of Despair, Et Moriemur, Doomed, Worship, Mournful Congregation
Self-Hatred feature members of classic Czech bands such as Dissolving of Prodigy, Silent Stream of Godless Elegy and Et Moriemur. The intention is to create moving, innovative and contemporary doom metal with emphasis on emotive richness and atmosphere. It takes the best elements of doom of this ilk and presents us with distilled emotions of the highest value. Subtly whirling, the music takes you to a different dimension where your emotions are laid bare, the caressing tunes evoking self-empathy that soon transmute into self-hatred - life is full of regrets and wrong choices but it is for us to live on with them. Brimming with such heart-searing melodies, Self-Hatred's debut is a sublime album that cajoles, evokes sweet pain, and is reminiscent of all the emotions that you hold sacred and pure. 'Theia' is a masterpiece. 
Album lineup:
Kaťas, Felis - vocals
Michal Šanda - keyboards
Aleš Vilingr, Pavel Janouškovec - guitars
Štěpán Eret - bass
Michal „Datel“ Rak - drums

ECHELON (International) - 'THE BRIMSTONE AGGRANDIZEMENT'   :  Genre - Classic Death Metal  :  For fans of - Bolt Thrower, Benediction, Warlord UK, Ursinne, Johansson & Speckmann, Entombed, Grave
New death metal supergroup ECHELON carry on where another supergroup STENCH PRICE left, employing the services of Dave Ingram (HAIL OF BULLETS, ex-BOLT THROWER, ex-BENEDICTION), Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, DEMIURG, PUTREVORE), Johan Berglund (RIBSPREADER, THE GROTESQUERY), Kjetil Lynghaug (JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN, PAGANIZER) and Travis Ruvo (AKATHARTA, CROPSY MANIAC). Expect death metal that is stupendous, old school and fleshed out, emphasizing on crushing British brutality coupled with classic Swedish melodic sensibilities and riffing power. Care has been taken to ensure that the nostalgic value remains foremost, as the music traverses through many winding yet memorable songs, with impeccable compositions by the riff-master Rogga and probably one of Dave Ingram's finest vocal performances of his career. This is a varied, bombastic album that will go down as one of the strongest albums of this era.

Timisoara based Black Metal combo KATHAROS XIII will release their second full-length album, NEGATIVITY, on Loud Rage Music in the first part of 2017! After a few years spent in crafting it, following a highly acclaimed (by both press and fans) Dead Emotions debut from 2011, Negativity is finished and ready to be released.
The sound of Katharos XIII emerged from dark chambers of human psyche, questions and deep melancholy into black chords, a truly unique combination of different layers and influences…personal experiences (all kinds of abuse, paranoia, severe depressions), strange stories, movies (Greenaway, Lynch), books (Eliade, Cioran, Zola) and of course no one can deny the musical field that is overwhelming and complex nowadays, but one thing is sure the members involved are more preoccupied to express themselves then being a part of the todays musical scene.
A new track taken off the band’s upcoming album is now available for free streaming; Check The Chains are so Beautiful here:

MALOIC (India) - 'DEATH'   :  Genre - Old School Death Metal  :  For fans of - Amorphis, Dark Tranquility, Obituary, Cannibal Corpse, Rudra, Amon Amarth
MALOIC are a revelation. They're creating music using elements of various genres and creating heavy metal music that has that undeniable classic quality to it. Reminiscent of bands like AMORPHIS (mid-period), OBITUARY, PRIMORDIAL, SENTENCED and METALLICA, it's definitely got a nostalgic and folk-ish feel to it. The instrumentation is brilliant and with mixing and mastering done by one of the most reputed studios in the country, it's a delight to listen to. The music is instantly memorable, catchy and will have you reaching for the repeat button. Taking into account the fact that the band is only from a small coastal town called Mangalore, the music that we have here is simply overwhelming. This is the reason why we listen to extreme metal - it's full of passion and full of surprises.

SYMMETRIC ORGAN - "STATES OF DECAY"  :  Genre:  Death Metal  :  Germany has a strong and vivid Death-Metal-Underground these days . The map of NRW-Death-Metal got a new clackspot: SYMMETRIC ORGAN from Dortmund. They may seem as a bunch of bloody rookies in the first place. But as soon as you take a closer look you realize: These guys have really left their marks within the scene – live as well as on CDs.
Experience, know how and ruthless hunger build the ground for their very own Idea of highly energetic harsh Grind Death Metal.
They started 2006 as project after major line-up changes of Exposed Guts. Until the split Andreas (Drums) Karsten (guitars) and Philip (Bass, vocals) played all across Germany and Europe to promote „The Way of All Flesh“ which came out in 2003. They shared the stage with bands like Deicide, Monstrosity, Aborted, Master, Waco Jesus, Prostitute
Disfigurement, Isacaarum and God Dethroned. SYMMETRIC ORGAN became serious in 2013 when Ivar joined in (see also Immortal Scorn). The first S.O.-life sign was “World Keeps Falling”, a free 4-track CD-R you to be picked up at gigs.
After a few more shows with bands like Dying Fetus they released their first full-length album “States of Decay”. Sound SYMMETRIC ORGAN play harsh blasting Grind Death Metal by mixing US-Brutal Death Metal, Grindcore and Old School Death Metal. Headbangers, who are into bands like Misery Index, Monstrosity, Dying Fetus, Phobia, Lock Up, Terrorizer, Nasum, Torture Division, Impaled, or Gorefest, should risk their eyes and ears at a Symmetric-Organ-Show.
Recorded 2016 it contains 10 sharp and short songs of blistering harsh Death Metal wihin about 30 minutes time. Our world is rotten in various ways and the album is a soundtrack to those different states of decay.

WORMWOOD joins forces with Non Serviam Records for eagerly anticipated debut album, “GHOSTLANDS - WOUNDS FROM A BLEEDING EARTH”. Swedish atmospheric black metallers WORMWOOD have inked a deal with the Dutch label  Non Serviam Records.
The debut single, entitled “Ghostlands - Wounds From a Bleeding Earth”, will be released early next as a physical release and through all digital platforms.
 The album has been recorded and mastered by Sverker Widgren , a renowned veteran of sound engineering on the Scandinavian extreme metal scene (October Tid, Demonicale, IXXI, DIABOLICAL)
With cover art created by the wildly talented photographer and designer: Mario Polzin of Moornebheym Design
The Album is part of WORMWOOD’s concept that revolves around the endless cycle of death and rebirth of the world. For each phase when man is rendered null, specters roam aimlessly around the earth and in endless wailing they chant about how the world once were and the state it is now.
Comment by WORMWOOD:
“To become a part of the Non Serviam Records family is a honor for us. They have the burning passion for music just like we have so the partnership is perfect. We know that our album is unique and interesting, so to be able to spread the word out with Non Serviam Records is something we’re looking forward to”
Added by Non Serviam Records CEO Ricardo Gelok:
“By hearing the first tones of WORMWOOD, I knew that this is a band that I would have to sign. WORMWOOD is an asset for the label, and it’s a real pleasure to work with this great, and hard-working band!”
