This is the second full-length release from Anael, a German band playing atmospheric black metal. The sound on this album reminds me of Greek greats like Necromantia -- crisp and clear, yet heavily atmospheric. The vocals are mostly snarled, though there's some clean singing now and again, very tastefully done. Anael's last album was full-on Samael worship, but on this record they've branched out into a sound of their own. There's still plenty of Samael in their slow, deliberate pacing and evil riffing, but there's a lot more variety here.

The long awaited split LP between Polish progressive grinders ANTIGAMA and Swedish horror/prog rock masters ANIMA MORTE is unleashed!
Black vinyl LP limited to 400 units. Comes with a big poster and a set of some kind of postcards inside a black envelope.
The Polish quartet offers one new song and ?Malcontento Popolare? cover song by Alessandro Alessandroni, famous multi-instrumentalist and film score maker from Italy. For those who are familiar with prolific discography of ANTIGAMA know it?s not the first time they pay homage to horror music. Nearly ten years ago the band recorded ?Zombi? cover song by Italian progressive rock band GOBLIN. ANTIGAMA's side was recorded and mixed at JNS Studio, Warsaw, Poland with Pawel Grabowski late 2015/early 2016. Mastered by James Plotkin (O.L.D., REGURGITATION, ATOMSMASHER, KHANATE).
From the very depths of the German underground, ARCHAIC THORN is anouncing the imminent release of their debut EP called "In Desolate Magnificence" through UNHOLY PROPHECIES. After an outstanding Demo, released back in 2013, the German trio has recorded 4 new tracks + intro of the most pure and deep Nihilistic Death Metal you've heard for quite some time now.
3 years are gone since Tod & Teufel, the last ARROGANZ album came out. Now the time has come to unleash a brandnew beast, entitled simply "PRIMITIV". But no, it doesn't sound primitive or simple, here waiting 6 new songs and with no doubt ARROGANZ' best written material so far. It would be just to easy to call it Death or blackened Death Metal...it's more than this...
Almost a year ago BALMOG recorded what they considered the most ambitious recording of the band: "Pillars Of Salt"
Under this enigmatic title, an introspective journey into the darkest tradition of rock and extreme metal is hidden, near 20 minutes of oppression and mysticism contained in a single track recorded in the damn Moontower Studios under the orders of Javier Félez.
BODE PRETO's debut titled "Inverted Blood" finally gets the deserved vinyl treatment through Unholy Prophecies. And we are more than proud about that! This album is nothing but an outstanding manifest of the most pure, evil, dark Blackened Death Metal coming of Southamerican lands. Do you remember those days in the late 80's / early 90's when tapetrading ruled the world? Do you remember the first impact of bands like SARCOFAGO, VULCANO, VON, BLASPHEMY and that kind of bands?
Second full length of this pure old-school Death/Black Metal band from Brazil. A typical Southamerican obscure attack of the most utterly deep darkness. For fans of SARCÓFAGO, VULCANO, VON, IMPALED NAZARENE and the likes. This album will crush all the fucking bones in your body. I warn you!!!!
7 tracks of old school poser-crushing Death Metal in the purest South American way: raw, fast and heavy as fuck! 5 tracks from the original ?Malevolence? CD, plus two bonus tracks: "Into Death" and "Guardian of Hell" from 1988 demo "Guardian of Hell".
Mesmerizing and gloomy Doom-Death from the most ghastly recesses of Finland. Merging the composing talents of LL from Desolate Shrine with the multi layered vocals of NM from Dark Buddha Rising, Convocation will haunt you and abrade your guts with the most spectral yet punishing tones you could experience!
Slowly yet surely, CROSS VAULT have built a small-yet-stellar canon of releases that are extremely personal in nature and absolutely poignant in execution and effect. After two acclaimed cult albums - Spectres of Revocable Loss and The All-Consuming in 2014 and 2015, respectively - CROSS VAULT joined with IRON BONEHEAD for the release of a special mini-album, Miles to Take, released in late 2016. Although "just" two songs, this epic short-length was a transitional record in more ways than one: the quintet had solidified its lineup after two members had graduated from "session" status, and the sum result suitably proved stunning, showing how far they could stretch their Viking doom sound whilst keeping it fiercely focused. CROSS VAULT were on the march...
In 1991, Dark Opera was formed in Lodz, Poland, the very same city in which the band’s compatriots of similar ilk in Pandemonium had united approximately two years earlier. Dark Opera’s first year of existence was plagued by several lineup changes, but it stabilized later that year when the band began to write its own songs and played its first live gig in Lomza. The following April, Dark Opera recorded its first demo, "The Day of Pariah", at Ariadna Studio in Lodz. Originally, this cassette was self-released, but the band was later signed by Carnage Records, who released a second iteration of the tape with alternate artwork. In 1993, the band added a second guitarist and recorded its first and only album, "Calling the Legend", in April of that same year. Like the demo that had preceded it, the album was released by another Polish label, Baron Records, who made it available on cassette format only. Like the aforementioned Pandemonium, Dark Opera’s music was reminiscent of the great Samael and others like Alastis and Taranis, but it also incorporated a somewhat greater influence from both death and doom metal. Nuclear War Now! is proud to be the first to reissue both Dark Opera recordings on vinyl and thus continue its neverending objective of rekindling the great fires once set and then left unattended in the most obscure caverns of the underground.
