Finland's ROTTEN SOUND are one of the titans of modern grind. 'Abuse to Suffer', their first album in five years, sees the rejuvenated band lay down a punishing barrage of hyper-aggressive extremity. The new album is nothing short of a 16-track tour-de-force of prime ROTTEN SOUND; scorching speed, crushing heaviness and some of the most ferocious vocals the genre has ever seen. As 'Abuse to Suffer' so forcefully and immediately illustrates, ROTTEN SOUND are at the very forefront of grindcore.
The new album from Polish black metal legend! Almost 20 years since their debut album, Wicher (1996), SACRILEGIUM now return with their second full-length, Anima Lucifera. The album title refers directly to a line from a poem by Leopold Staff; excerpts of which have been used in the new Sacrilegium tracks. Similarly, the works of W. B. Yeats and Ferdnando Pessoa appear next to Nantur’s original lyrics.
With Anima Lucifera, the band goes against the grain and abandons the path which they originally paved. Crossing their own borders and rejecting current popular conventions, Sacrilegium mark a new direction for themselves. They are not completely abandoning the pagan spirit but rather evolving from popular tradition in the direction of the esoteric school. Anima Lucifera explores occult themes, which accompanied the band members at the beginning of their journey in the 1990s. Today, however, their music is richer thanks to the experience they have gained over the last 20 years.

It is rare that a band lives up to the promise of its initial recordings by the time it releases a debut LP. A band that releases a well-conceived demo or EP and immediately becomes engulfed in hype is often doomed to fail. Sacriphyx are one of those few bands for which the debut LP is represents both a continuation of the trajectory laid out in the band?s previous recordings and also a substantial step forward. Some years ago, NWN! received the ?Lone Pine? demo CDr from the band.
Hailing from Germany, SANCTIFYING RITUAL formed in 2008. The Sadistic Death demo followed a year later, but it would be another three years before the next demo, Carved in Rotten Remains, arrived. During that time, members were busy with such well-regarded cults as Nocturnal Witch and Division Speed, but SANCTIFYING RITUAL still burned in their black hearts. A four-song EP, Storm of Devastation, arrived in 2013 before the band would remain silent...
Old good black vinyl! The LP features 2 bonus tracks recorded for LP version exclusively! Packed in thick glossy gatefold sleeve with alternate cover painted by Chris Moyen!
8th full-lenght album is typical SATHANAS style that is s powerful, fresh and full of energy, combining the obscurity of Black Metal, rawness of old Death Metal with the intricacies of old school Thrash! Long awaited successor to Nightrealm Apocalypse from 2009, taking the dagger and plunges it right through the heart of the heavens, to watch the skies bleed for forgiveness!
Seventh full length album from US black thrash death metal legends SATHANAS, and with no doubt the strongest release in band’s 20 year history. 10 songs of blasphemy and disgrace played in the obscure, raw old school style casting their evil spells with such titles as Ever Falling Darkness, Demonhellstorm or Black Witching Millennium. The gates are open again and the forces of the dark has been summoned, so be prepared for total demon hell storm in the spirit of old Metal! The album was mixed and mastered by Tore Sternja at Necromorbus Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.
New full length of this Spanish Death Metal band. Fast, brutal, raw and dark Death Metal! Seven years have passed since they edited their last album "Woven In The Book Of Hate", seven years where the band has evolved their sound to a higher degree of brutality, darkness and technique. The result is this fucking masterpiece of death metal, in the line of MORBID ANGEL, IMMOLATION and BEHEMOTH. Great sound, great cover and desing and above all, great songs?you don´t be dissapointed with this recording, you can be sure!!!!
SCYTHIAN's debut full-length "To Those Who Stand Against Us..." is a ferocious tour de force presenting SCYTHIAN's unique brand of Metal; malicious, down-tuned riffs that could have been recorded by Sodom in the mid-80's melt into truly magnificent choir-backed passages reminiscent of "Hammerheart"-era BATHORY only to collapse into a frenzied blasting orgy of war, death and desolation; emerging once again from the chaos with some of the most virtuose guitar solos ever to be heard on a Metal recording.

One of the most morbid and bloodiest death metal bands from Germany crawls out of his tomb and after 1.5 years of abstinence comes back with a almost half-hour new mini album. The title of this new masterpiece is 'ABATTOIR'. And that's exactly what the songs on the album sound like: bloody, creeping, aggressive and murderously tight. SLAUGHTERDAY presents 4 brand new songs, which show a clear development of the band, without losing their style and their own character.
Out from the flaming kingdom of death arose STRESS ANGEL in 2020 with their eponymous debut demo. There, the NYC two-piece presented six songs of thrashing death metal that is classic without being retro, and uniquely dark and demented. An auspicious first start, no doubt, and almost effortlessly so.
Now, STRESS ANGEL strike with their full-length debut, Bursting Church. Ever aptly titled, Bursting Church is indeed an archaic monument literally bursting – with feral energy, unholy passion, and RIFFS! In one sense, STRESS ANGEL here up-ratchet all of the previous demo’s foremost characteristics – contorted riffery, pitiless battery, shrill screams, and frantic execution – and retain their still-new yet firmly-etched identity….
IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a special 12" MLP from TEMPLE BELOW entitled The Dark Goddess. A pan-international entity spanning South America and Europe, TEMPLE BELOW brand their music "Black Magic Metal of Death" and appropriately summon sulfurous atmosphere and bestial madness, their sound brimming with gnarling violence and in-the-red hysteria. With four years between releases, TEMPLE BELOW are not ones to rush things, and that patience to their black-magick craft pays off with The Dark Goddess: three tracks of gibbering, pulsing possession occasionally stretched to epic ends and one haunting soundscape of evil entrantment, all as it should be and in demonic harmony, altogether creating a Lovecrafting landscape of nameless horrors and eldritch energy.
By now, TEMPLE NIGHTSIDE require little to no introduction. Begun in 2010 by mainman IV - whose experience in the fertile Australian black metal underground is vast in itself - to explore a more blackened version of ancient death metal, the band's initially self-described "Ritualistic Death Metal Necromancy" eventually morphed into more atmospheric and more deeply cavernous shapes, culminating in 2016's critically acclaimed The Hecatomb. But such acclaim matters not to TEMPLE NIGHTSIDE, and the now-quartet next explored their past with the foul 'n' fascinating Recondemnation in 2018, which was a reimagining of their 2013 Condemnation debut album.
Germany?s The Fog is an intense three-piece unit that plays some very good Doom/Death metal.
THE FOG down pick away to destruction on Perpetual Blackness. The vocals on here are quite intense. The occasional uppicks and transition riffs scale up the fretboard punk-style. I?d perhaps describe their style as venerable doom act COFFINS meets Finland?s underrated Lantern in a back alley brawl. If you?re a fan of doom/death, this is one record to check out.
