HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present the highly anticipated third album of Italy's BARBARIAN, "Cult of the Empty Grave". Since 2009, the power-trio have been killing it in the metal underground, culminating in 2014's classic "Faith Extinguisher" on the highly respected Doomentia label. Now, with the backing of longtime fans HELLS HEADBANGERS, the true BARBARIAN are poised to hail and kill, far and wide, wherever the mighty hooves of the Apocalypse take them, and "Cult of the Empty Grave" shall be the soundtrack to that domination.
"Leather, Steel & Hell" features 4 newly recorded songs including a cover of SLAYER's "Fight Till Death" plus a bonus compilation of Bloodlust's previous demo releases, "Thrashing Black Devil Worship", "Death Magic Rites" and the "Spell of the Raven Witch" single. 16 tracks in total in a Pro produced CD package. Limited to 300 copies.
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY's "Apocalyptic Compendium - 10 Years in Chaos, Noise and Warfare" on CD and cassette tape formats. For a decade now, these Italian speed metalpunks have been ruling the post-apocalyptic wasteland with their own brand of crazed 'n' crusty warfare noise. They've put out two critically acclaimed albums through HELLS HEADBANGERS, 2010's "It's Time to Face the Doomsday" and 2014's "Future Decay," and now CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY return with a career-spanning collection of singles and splits.
Here you have the debut full-length from EVIL, a four-piece black/speed metal band from Tokyo, Japan. Although the band has existed since 2011 and has previously released two demos and a split CD, its output to this point has been largely overlooked. With ?Rites of Evil,? however, its profile is rightfully promised to rise from the obscurity that is due at least in part to its geographic isolation. Including venerable bands such as Bathory, Hellhammer and Slayer in its list of prominent influences that in all span at least three continents and various subsets of first-wave black metal and satanic speed metal, the ones that shine through the most are early Sodom, Sarcofago, and fellow compatriots Sabbat and a certain, notorious Japanese punk metal band.
This is the first full-length album from this Australian black/thrash metal band, after a number of well-received demos and MCDs.
The guitar tone here alternates between chugging and a high, sharp sound that really brings out the occasional solo. Drums are low in the mix, but still perfectly audible, with a good deal of cymbal rather than bass, contributing to the biting tone of the songs. Vocals are especially noteworthy. They're snarled with a good deal of feeling, and perfectly understandable.
Music wise Gospel of the Horns delivers a thundering old school blasphemous metal. I prefer to call it simply "metal", for two reasons. First, this is pure metal, not infected by any strange influences, it's based on classic instrumentation, played with the passion and understanding of the metal principles. And two, the band takes the equal measures of death, black, thrash and even more extreme heavy metal and melts it into their own music. They play it with savage energy, straightforward attitude and take no prisoners.
This is a collaboration of 2 of Spain's best extreme metal bands. GRAVEYARD (Death Metal) and KÖRGULL THE EXTERMINATOR (Black Thrash Metal). GRAVEYARD contribute with 2 brand new songs, a PARADISE LOST COVER ("Eternal") and a cover of KÖRGULL THE EXTERMINATOR. KÖRGULL THE EXTERMINATOR also feature 2 brand new songs, a 2012 re-recording of "Devoted To Death" and a cover of GRAVEYARD.
In 2013 Doomentia Records released this split in vinyl format. This is the first time ever this release is available in CD format.
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"!
Taken from Stereokiller.com: "The mixture of Speed Metal and early blackened Thrash are met with one of the most natural analog outputs possible for this style today in one of the most violent outbursts the underground has to offer. Whether you want to just cut lose alone, incite a flash mosh pit, or commit acts so heinous you'd land on the NSA's watch list, or the no fly lists at the very least, you owe it to yourself to make Total Hell the soundtrack to those very moments"
Here it is! INSANITY ALERT's debut full-length! 15 crossover Thrash Metal grenades that will mosh your head off and leave you begging for more. Zombies, war, mental infections are just some of the topics. Run to the pit and thrash harder!
Formed in April of 1986 in Belo Horizonte, in the Minas Gerais state of Brazil, Insulter was born in the same lineage of early Brazilian deathcore as such bands as Sarcófago and Sextrash, among others. In fact, all three bands shared members at different stages of their development. Not to be confused with the way the term is more commonly used today, this brand of Brazilian ?deathcore? was more of a reinterpreted brand of first-generation black metal, transformed by its heirs after having been bequeathed to Brazil from early European forefathers such as Bathory and Sodom. In addition to its emergence at the hands of these bands and others from Minas Gerais, a significant amount of cross-pollination occurred between them and São Paolo-based bands like Vulcano and Genocidio, which truly made this a unique musical brand of its own and one which would later serve as a primary inspiration worldwide for the bestial black metal bands of the late 80s and beyond.
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.
Debut full length of this raw & dirty Catalonian motherfuckers! Blackened Thrash / Death as it's best!
If you like MOTÖRHEAD, NOCTURNAL BREED, SODOM and that kind of bands, this one will fucking blow your head off!

Never applause only bang your head!!
