Gatefold LP. Black version limited to 300 copies. Includes a download code as well.
INCARCERATION is surely one of the most intense Death Metal acts worldwide. Did you ever see a Incarceration live ritual on stage? You should, it's insane, it's fast, bloody and straight forward Death Metal deeper than to the bone. You can feel their power and passion the whole set long. Now the time has come to unleash this beast on CD and vinyl. The beast contains 10 brandnew songs and called ?CATHARSIS?. You can expect brutal, fast, catchy, intense and insane Death Metal. INCARCERATION built their own style of Death Metal.
INFAMY has finally made it on album after the death of their main-man Joshua Heatley. This album is a fitting tribute to him. INFAMY does orthodox, technical Death Metal. End of story. The overall quality is good. I am afraid this album will only appeal to Death Metal fans. Only die-hard Death Metal fans understand the fine details in this album. Those who like melodic music will loathe this album.
At long last, INFERNAL CURSE reveal their highly anticipated second album, Apocalipsis, set for release on vinyl LP via IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS. Hailing from the oft-overlooked scene of Argentina, INFERNAL CURSE are a study in patience and defiance. Forming in 2008, early on, the band's sound was strictly within the blown-out blackthrash characteristic of South America's most-underground metal, culminating in the clattering 'n' chaotic Awakening of the Damned debut LP in 2012. However, it was with the IRON BONEHEAD-released mini-album The End Upon Us in 2014 where INFERNAL CURSE truly found their stride. Reigning in the chaos for a more pulsing form of barbarity, the power-trio were as violent and virulent as ever, but pushed the still-overwhelming physicality into the beyond.
"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...
Released by Witching Hour.
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!
"Sorcery" is hell of a brutal, insane and epic album with occult lyrical content, it causes vicious and morbid feelings. "Sorcery" is NOT catchy, this is true "Northern Hyperblast"! An excellent Death Metal record of its genre, and one of exceptionally high caliber for its period, a real masterpiece from 1995.
Following in the footsteps of their previous releases came "Temple Of Knowledge (Kataklysm Part III)", the second full-length sonic assault by Canadian hyperblasters KATAKLYSM, released in 1996. With this album the quartet KATAKLYSM delivered one of the most explosive Death Metal releases back then. Crushing riffs and nice melodies are backed by ferocious drumming with a focus on blastbeats. The vocals are in lay man's terms "Animalistic", and inhumanly fast as well.
Release in 2-LP with gatefold cover and 6 bonus of the 2nd opus of this bizarre Thrash/Black war machine from Spain. Superior in every sense to their already killer debut, this is the real sound of fucking evil and raw Axe Thrash!! Think of SODOM, BATHORY, HELLHAMMER, very early VOIVOD, DARKTHRONE, BULLDOZER?
New album from these underground survivors of MASTER! MASTER are one of the most well known and longest running Death Metal acts on the planet. It definitely needs no introduction. Pure old-school Death Metal from these pioneers of the scene.
The great cover artwork for "An Epiphany of Hate" was created by artist Mark Cooper.
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.
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.
Debut EP of this razorsharp Thrash Metal from France. Absolute old-school spirit!! Imagery, sound, production, songs.. Everything here is as if it was recorded in 1988! A must for fans of BATHORY, DESTRUCTION or old-KREATOR!
"Returning to haunt the crypts ten years after the sadly rather lacklustre Buried in Time, Italy's venerable Mortuary Drape have delivered a fine return to form in the shape of Spiritual Independence. Dating back to 1987, with the potential exception of the aforementioned predecessor, Mortuary Drape have carved an impressive legacy based on a sound which, while identifiably black metal, draws more from the melodic sensibility of traditional heavy metal than any of the usual genre tropes. This in itself has always been one of the major appeals of the band: a sense of dynamism and understanding of the elements contributing to engaging and memorable songwriting. Throughout the album this element shines through again and again. The band demonstrates an admirable ability to make a riff last just exactly as long as it should, neither abruptly appearing then vanishing nor outstaying its welcome and becoming leaden or plodding.
Thrash metal the evil way is the name of the game here and the screaming chorus that goes like "Ave Sathanaaaaaas!" of the opening track "Antichriste" should tell you all you need to know about this Jundiai in the Sao Paulo suburbs-based lot. Except that whereas one might have expected another black/thrash band with punk leanings, this power-trio proves with a fist that they just don't play to the same category and don't really fit with the overall chaotic sound of the Brazilian scene.
