The third album from the necromantical masters!
4 years after the Death celebration ?Misfortune?, ABYSMAL GRIEF have returned with their third macabre opus entitled ?Feretri?. For nearly two decades these lords of funerals have evoked gloomy musical portraits of Death like no other band, and their grotesque, necromantic hymns reach a new disturbing zenith with this occult masterpiece.
Sinister, macabre and evil, ?Feretri? is another baroque landmark on the terrifying orchetra?s path to eternal doom! Join them in Death!
The rotten seeds of Abyssus were planted years ago via the "Monarch to the Kingdom of the Dead" EP (2012), the "Summon the Dead" EP (2014) and the splits with Nocturnal Vomit (2013), Morbider (2014) and Slaktgrav (2014), so it was about damn time to see them go the full-length route. The wait is over: "Into the Abyss" has arrived. This hyper-active Greek band formed back in 2011 pay homage to the intense, pounding and energetic Death Metal from the good old late 80´s and early 90´s, drawing their influences from such legendary acts as Obituary, Death, Viogression, Asphyx, Master, Benediction, Autopsy, Bolt Thrower, Celtic Frost and Massacre.
?Humarrogance? is the 5th full studio album of AGATHOCLES and was recorded in autumn 1997 at the Soundshape Studios in Belgium where the band also recorded albums such as ?Razor Sharp Daggers?, ?Black Clouds Determinate? and many more. The album was originally released in 1997 by MORBID RECORDS and has been out of print since 1998. More than 20 years later comes this re-issue on SELFMADEGOD RECORDS with brand new artwork and besides the 20 original songs of the album an extra song which was recorded at the same session back in 1997. The whole material was re-mastered in 2019 at the Nero?s Inferno Studios. This AGATHOCLES release is a massive bulldozer guitar driven assault with haunting deep vocals and twisted riffs combined with Burt?s tight pounding drumming style. Take care of your speakers when you play this album!
THERE´S NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR SPEAKERS - IT´S ONLY MINCECORE FROM HELLGIUM!
"Mincing through the maples" contains some great raw Agathocles tracks that were recorded live on 19th August 2015 at the "Coalition" club in Toronto, Canada. Many of the favorite Agathocles songs are in the setlist and the sound captures all the spirit of this gig. Agathocles had much trouble in Canada, therefore for the band this is a release to say thanks to all the people who have been so helpful, caring and supportive when they played there. You can read the full story at the liner notes written by Jan AG.
The debut album from Altered Dead channeling the classic old school death metal sound into the current era of extreme music. "A lack of the genre in the region and on isolated Vancouver Island influenced the formation of Altered Dead in 2011. Winding, abrasive, necro riffs structured with treading, storming and blasting percussion- Chemical-scalded throats wheezing lyrical themes of physical and mental warfare, mutating human nature, imminent conflict, collapse."
Poland?s grandmasters of radical grindcore, ANTIGAMA, have completed the seventh full-length installation of their cutting edge arsenal, ?The Insolent?, for release through their trusted alliance with Selfmadegod Records. Following the impact of their massive 2013-released ?Meteor? album, ANTIGAMA will once again captivatingly scar the planet with the inundation of ?The Insolent?. Seeing the band further along their ongoing path of progression, ?The Insolent? contains another intriguing alloy of their futuristic grind savagery heavily diversified with cosmic exploration and harsh dissonance through ten new tracks of unorthodox, rapid forward-thinking metal. Recorded in February at JNS Studio in Warsaw, ?The Insolent? was engineered by Pawel Grabowski, mixed by Pawel Grabowski and the band, and mastered by Scott Hull at Visceral Sound in Bethesda, Maryland (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), the album features a very special guest appearance of the legend of Polish electronic music scene, Wladyslaw ?Gudonis? Komendarek, and bears cover art designed by Bartek Rogalewicz.
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.

In 2009 ARES KINGDOM began working out a cover of "Die By Power" by Slaughter Lord. Showing his support for this endeavor, former Slaughter Lord drummer, Steve Hughes, sent Ares Kingdom the previously unpublished lyrics for the track. This process catalyzed a series of other cover tracks for what would later become "Veneration." The tracks selected for inclusion on "Veneration" reveal the ancestral blood that led to the development of Ares Kingdom?s style. Like a genetic code passed down, but still recognizable through generations, the influence of bands such as R.U. Dead, Mefisto, Sacrilege, and especially Slaughter Lord is prominently reflected in the bloodline of Ares Kingdom.

Last studio full length from the most veteran & old-school Death Metal band from Spain. This band has always stoof for uncompromising Death Metal. Kicking asses since 1991 and showing no mercy until today.
Spain's BALMOG have been creating horrifying Black Metal since 2003, and this is their third album. You´ll get complex but ?Vacvvm? is what you would want to hear from a black metal album. It?s immersed in darkness, drenched in evil, and walks in the shadows until it can approach you and stray you from the path of good.
For the fans of early Watain, Deathspell Omega and the likes?

Over the past decade the stream of so called ?Bestial Black/Death? metal has swelled dramatically becoming an uncontainable river the waters of which have become a polluted sewer of fecal sludge. Only a few bands have maintained the integrity of this sound. Among the most prominent and most respectable of these is Poland?s BESTIAL RAIDS.
