A unique, nearly-nameless entity from Sweden, FOR create sepulchral black/death metal from uniquely-located, surely-nameless depths. Their Kundaz debut album appeared seemingly out of nowhere in early 2013, and now arrives the Blakaz Asko Hertô 12" MLP via IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS. Devoted to the Germanic black witch Gullveig and her Thursian bloodline of ravenous hordes of wolves and werewolves, the concept of FOR 's music is based upon the sacred bindrune, Ulfhamir, and pursues to invoke the black wolf-spirit within.
FUNERAL WHORE hails from The Netherlands and is back with their 2nd album "Phantasm". A brutal old school death metal masterpiece you don´t see often: a tribute to "Phantasm", a horror movie from the 80ies. Eleven tracks of brutal, shredding death metal, a nightmare from the abyss of all evil! Limited vinyl edition of 500 copies (300 black / 200 clear purple).
"An album, relentless, pure and evil throughout all of it's 11 murderous tracks. Fundamentalistic roots of old school death metal madness hammering your soul at maximum brutality. A concept built upon the cult classic horror 'Phantasm' and reincarnated by the members of Funeral Whore. THE DEATH METAL NIGHTMARE IS BACK FROM THE ABYSS OF ALL FUCKING EVIL! Make 'em get it!" (FUNERAL WHORE)
The crushing debut full-length from this Italian ensemble of devoted death metalheads. Formed back in 2012 and seasoned in other Italian Death and Doom Metal bands, FUNEST take pride in keeping the ancient, putrid and uncompromising Death Metal flame alive via crushing and memorable riffs, monstruous growls and a tight-as-fuck rhythm section, that will definitely appeal to fans of bands like NIHILIST/ ENTOMBED, DEATH, GRAVE, AUTOPSY, GOD MACABRE, ASPHYX, CREMATORY, CARNAGE and MASSACRE. Featuring a jaw-dropping artwork and layout by the talented artist Cesar Valladares, and guest vocals by Johan Jansson (INTERMENT, REGURGITATE, UNCANNY, ex-CENTINEX, ex-DEMONICAL, ex-FULMINATION, ex-UNCURBED...) on two songs, "Desecrating Obscurity" is the first yet solid step of a band that will definitely find their own place in the current Death Metal underground scene very soon. Don´t say you weren?t warned!!!
Originally released in 1996 but out of print for many years now, Macabre Requiems was the grand culmination of GROG's hard work in the underground during the early '90s. The band, in fact, was one of the very first extreme metal bands to hail from Portugal, and thereby influenced generations to come. Hearing Macabre Requiems, whether it was during its original release or especially now, it's not difficult to imagine why it was influential: ghastly and grinding, grisly and gutted, the album is pure and total DEATH METAL of a most early '90s vintage, horror-ridden and heavy as fuck. Utterly raw and flesh-ripping, GROG assault the listener with 43 minutes of ungodly deathgrind across these Macabre Requiems, with songs ranging from five minutes to some under a minute, altogether exhibiting a lively and dynamic flow that ends in the listener being completely pulverized!
The return of INFANT DEATH! "Total Hell" is the ultimate fitting title for the 2nd album from this Raw, occult Thrash/ Speed Metal band from Trondheim, Norway! If you were amazed by the Speed and brutality of their debut-album "War" - prepare for complete onslaught on "Total Hell"!
"The End Upon Us"...so proclaim Argentinean black/death cult INFERNAL CURSE with their new 12" MLP. Across four swift slices of barbaric bestiality, this power-trio paints a vivid portrait of a future most fatal. Explosions of subharmonic riff, drums driven with animalistic abandon, sepulchral voices plumbing the depths of the abyss, and chaotic leads divebombing into and out of the metaphysical carnage: here, INFERNAL CURSE up-ratchet all the aspects that made their Awakening of the Damned debut so deadly, rendering The End Upon Us a study in deeply occult savagery. This is The End Upon Us...
INFERNAL EXECRATOR's debut full-length "Ad Infinitum Satanic Adherent" is now available on LP-version by Apocalyptic Empire Records! The vinyl-version includes exclusive LP-only lay-out, printed insert and one "hidden" bonus-track only available on the LP!

Description taken from Metal-Archives.com:
Oh yes, ?Damned Majesty? sounds very much like early Graveland stuff: raw and hateful black metal with freezing synths. I?m a huge fan of old Graveland and consequently this stuff blew me away as well. Anextiomarus? vocals sound exactly like Rob Darken, being fantastically cruel. It?s fascinating that someone other than Rob Darken can sound so much like him. Had someone played this to me without telling which band it was, I would?ve guessed it was Graveland. Keyboardist Icaunis (Rob Darken) uses the same type of freezing keyboard sound that he used on ?Carpathian Wolves?. This gives the music a very cold and evil feeling, just like on early Graveland releases.
UNHOLY PROPHECIES, in conspiracy with Equinox Discos, is proud to present INSULTERS highly anticipated second album, "Metal Still Means Danger". Aptly fucking titled, "Metal Still Means Danger" is a literal statement of intent from these rude 'n' crude Catalonian bastards. Unrepentantly ugly since the beginning (and to the bitter end, we'd wager), INSULTERS formed in 2008 with the apparent aim to defile and then destroy all in their path. A couple demos and a split came before they accomplished exactly that with their debut album, the also-aptly-titled "We Are the Plague". Released in 2013 by Unholy Prophecies and Equinox Discos, "We Are the Plague" became something of a "sleeper hit" with those lucky few who heard it: INSULTERS offered a refreshingly ribald and gleefully gut-busting hybrid of blackthrash and old-school death metal, with a pinch of rock 'n' roll and even D-beat to be found.
"We Are The Plague" is a fierce overdose of Blackened Death/Thrash the old, putrid way. A violent outbreak of blasphemy, intolerance and hate. Inspired by the mighty pioneers from the days when the line between Black and Death Metal was too thin to make any distinctions between them, as well as some of the late 80s / early 90s Death Metal hordes, the old Satanic Thrash Metal classics, and a slight influence of the UK82 and other European old HC Punk scenes, smashing the face of the trendy MetalPunk waves we have suffered during the recent years. Insulters, Masters of the Sin, will take no prisoners. Hail the Plague!
Second full lenght from Germany's dwellers of the deepest pit INTO COFFIN.
The band started its fateful voyage into void in 2015 when a first demo was released, commencing the dour march toward the shaping of their formula of Death Doom. After a well received debut album, an ep and a couple of splits, it is time to let Into Coffin engulf us again into a threatening turmoil of suffering. With this new album the German trio create a 74 minutes-long churning maelstrom of burdensome blackness; while keeping their approach and sound untouched, the final result is incredibly darker than ever. The horror and suffering perpetrated here is build upon repugnant riffs from sulphurous mazes and pummeling drumming. Aggression balanced with unfathomable and uncomfortable stall.
Legendary band from Florida that plays a heavy Death Metal that blends influences from european bands like CARCASS/ GRAVE with the american sound of bands like ROTTREVORE/ INCANTATION.
"Shores of Oblivion" is a four-song mini-album released by Xtreem Music, 2016, which includes amazing cover art photography by Adam Woodworth (www.adamwoodworth.com). The audio was recorded and produced at Helton Music, which was responsible for Killing Addiction's "When Death Becomes An Art" EP.
Second full length of this awesome brutal band from Chile. The Sequeida brothers (ex-DOMINUS XUL) are back with an A-W-E-S-O-M-E album. Only released on 12" vinyl by Australis Records from Chile. If you like Death Metal then you will love this album!
UNHOLY PROPHECIES is proud to present MORBID FLESH's highly anticipated second album, ?Rites of the Mangled?. Proudly Catalonian, this Barcelona-based band is fitingly named, for they are authentically and unequivocally morbid, old-school DEATH fuckin' METAL. Which is all not that surprising considering MORBID FLESH's membership includes scene veterans who do time in such hordes as INSULTERS, GRAVEYARD, ÓSSERP, CUERNO, TORT and SHEIDIM among others. What results is a mammoth, elephantine bulldozer of disgusting, disease-drenched Death Metal in a most classic Swedish manner.
The highly anticipated debut album by this upcoming Mexican band. Limited to 350 black and 150 white units.
Thus girded with such proud and powerful influences, "Demoniac Paroxysm" thus invokes its very title, whipping the listener into a fury of rotten, sewer-dwelling possession. Rubbed raw and blasted about like a boombox from the bowels of Hell, this is DEATH METAL in all caps, and forever be it so: MORBID MESSIAH are not recommended for trendy ears nor those with weak stomachs. But if the flame burns true within you, by all means, take this torch now! Naturally, for a record so foul and filthy, it's only fitting that "Demoniac Paroxysm" is gracelessly graced with classic cover artwork courtesy of the esteemed Mark Riddick. Bow down and pray to Morbid Messiah!
One of the first records NWN! released was MORBOSIDAD's magnificent blasphemic self-titled opus and the relationship between NWN! and MORBOSIDAD has endured for more than a decade. Although MORBOSIDAD formed in 1993, the band only released two demos before the death of drummer Yegros forced the band into a torpor that lasted for several years until Tomas Stench reassembled a line-up to record what would become the band?s debut album. Recorded in 1998 and originally released in 2000 on Quadrivium, it was only available on CD and featured garish, unsuitable cover artwork. Within a year of beginning NWN! Productions, YK Insulter approached the band about re-issuing the album on vinyl with new artwork.
