2nd album of this killer spanish band of motherfucking, infernal & aggressive old school Thrash Metal with a slight Speed Metal touch. Influences in the vein of KREATOR, ABSU, NECRONOMICON, SODOM, EXODUS, DESTRUCTION, DESTRΦYER 666...
ROTTING CHRIST have stood the test of time. "Rituals" is an album that has obviously been written by veterans. The Greek legends inject a 27-year career, 12 albums, and more than 1.200 shows into their songwriting. With confidence and skills derived from experience, each song represents its own sonic universe. Guitarist / vocalist Sakis Tolis and brother Themis on drums achieve a perfect balance of amalgamating their classic and unique style of riffing and rhythm with exciting new elements sprinkled in to keep their material exciting and fresh.
Carefully chosen guests are being added for better effect, not name dropping such as the spoken words of Nick Holmes (PARADISE LOST) on "A Voice Like Thunder" or SAMAEL's Vorph mesmerizingly quoting from Charles Baudelaire's "Les Fleurs Du Mal" throughout the song "Les Litanies De Satan". Goosebumps moments such as these are liberally sprinkled throughout the record, which manages the feat to sound rock solid and made out of one heavy piece as well as diverse and far ranging at the same time. The experienced is enhanced by Jens Bogren's equally clear and transparent yet also massive as well as sombre mix and mastering at his widely renowned Fascination Street Studios (AMORPHIS, BORKNAGAR, MOONSPELL, DEVIN TOWNSEND, and many more).
Die Hard edition on "coke bottle" clear vinyl with an A2 poster, gatefold jacket, 36?x36? cloth tapestry, and two silver foil stickers.
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.

Hot on the heels of their internationally acclaimed Sulphur Blessing demo, black/death barbarians SACROCURSE deliver their highly anticipated debut album, Unholier Master. Much like that debut demo, Unholier Master sees scene veteran Zolrak Montes - most known for Nodens and Unholier, but also a former member of Morbosidad and Obeisance - joined by Turkey's Godslaying Hellblast, unleashing one furious, fiery barrage of bestiality after another, their surging onslaught whipping the listener into a diabolical possession. But here, SACROCURSE receive the properly crushing production their maniacal metal so deserves: robust and rounded, full yet feral, highlighting the red-eyed and rabid performances rendered by Zolrak and company. Immediately memorable from beginning to bloody end, Unholier Master proves who the new masters are...
UNHOLY PROPHECIES is proud to present SACROSCUM's highly anticipated debut album, Drugs & Death. Ever aptly titled, Drugs & Death is a scourge upon one's sanity and sanctity, a black-hole blight that swallows you whole. SACROSCUM aren't fucking around.
SACROSCUM was formed in 2015 by J. and SS. After playing music together for a long time and trying to create something unique, the duo mixed influences of Darkthrone, early Celtic Frost, Discharge, Skitsystem, Inquisition, and everything they thought would be fitting. Combined with utterly hateful lyrics and a healthy disdain for most of you, SACROSCUM was born.
Debut full length of this awesome Italian Thrashers! Out on Iron Shield Records. Limited Edition. Black vinyl version. Beautiful gatefold cover. Includes a poster. The LP includes 4 bonus tracks taken from the previous EP's. Really great stuff!
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.
Cacophonous coalescence of amorphous chaos and morbidly dissonant riffage conforming a mesmerizingly hypnotic Black Metal mass that will appeal to those who have been staring unblinking at the abyss until its relentless vortex has finally consumed them.
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.
THRONEUM was formed in the very deepest basement of hell back in 1996. Influenced by thousands of deaths in the 80ies and beginning of the 90ies and the Black Metal, THRONEUM is one of the best know bands from the Polish underground.
True metalheads know this band and they don't need any more introductions. This full length from 2007 is a fucking killer record from this outstanding Black/Death Metal band!
With their 2nd album THUNDERKRAFT went in a more experimental direction, combining the classical styles of Death and Black Metal with electronic music, folklore, epic and symphonic elements. This wild combination of styles plus live-recorded violin, flute and saxophone make the sound of the band truly unique. With members of NOKTURNAL MORTUM, QUINTESSENCE MYSTICA, MUNRUTHEL.
Cologne based TYRANOS will rip you apart with their second Demo "The Epitome Ov Blasphemy". On this tape you'll get 4 blackened/thrash metal songs that increase an unholy powerful aura of which even the cologne cathedral chruch will try to hide. Good luck with that,hah!
