REISSUE OF THE DEBUT FULL LENGTH W/ THREE BONUS SONGS TAKEN FROM "Temples Descend Below the Earth" EP (Archasm Releasing 2010). "My kind of music. Utter darkness, a bottomless pit of night. Unapologetic underground metal at its best and most captivating" - Tom G. Warrior (TRIPTYKON, CELTIC FROST, HELLHAMMER)
Crushing debut full length of this Death Metal band from Chile. Comes in a beautiful A5 (a bit smaller than A5 but bigger than a normal digipack). This band has a technical touch that really impresses me. For fans of IMMOLATION but also of GOJIRA. Almost 50 minutes of really cool stuff.
Spawned back in 1996 by Abyssal (bass, voc) and Shogoth (gui), the band preserves the flame of sheer, traditional Black/Death Metal with a suitable dose of melodiousness and a damaging portion of unbound darnkess and utter brutality...
ETERNIUM is a Symphonic Black/Death Metal band hailing from the American Midwest in St. Louis, Missouri, and was initially the solo project of Markov Soroka in early 2011. The one man project eventually became a full band in August 2012. The band took to the studio in winter 2012 to record their first full-length album ?Repelling A Solar Giant? which will be released by Blast Head Records. Symphonic Black Metal as well as the crushing force of Swedish Death Metal. This is a must for fans of Dissection, Amon Amarth and Emperor.
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.
Darkened, dissonant and furious black metal explorations converge in this 27 minutes debut EP.
?Let?s make one thing clear. We need to stress the fact that our era is lost in a huge void of numbness. We are here to bring and present you what your system could not solve by itself. We?ll cover the daylight with ashes and smash the massive skull that?s blocking your brain and will to evolve. We?re GAEREA.?
Archaic, cold, grim Black Metal from Argentina. Melancholic, atmospheric yet brutal Black Metal. A good & Solid work. With members of bands like HORDA PROFANA, ARTES NEGRAS, ex-GRIMA MORSTUA among others.
Set to be released blasphemously on Christmas Eve 2016, DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN is proud to present the highly anticipated second album of Germany's GOATBLOOD, ?Veneration of Armageddon?. For the past five years, this chains- and bullet-bedecked power-duo have been polluting the metal underground with their belligerent brand of bestial black/death. A handful of demos as well as a split were vomited forth before GOATBLOOD's momentous debut album, ?Adoration of Blasphemy and War?, in 2015. Ever aptly titled, ?Adoration of Blasphemy and War? soundly put the band on the international map, and proved that new, gnarly twists can be made to the rigorous bestial metal template.
I'm sure you already know this band if you are familiar with Chilean / Southamerican Death Metal. If you like MELEKTAUS you will love this one. If you like IMMOLATION, you can't miss this one. With members of DOMINUS XUL, MELEKTAUS TOTTEN KORPS or DOMINUS XUL, this band simply kills. No more words needed. Killer.
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.
Its not easy to find some bands that take you 20-25 years back in times, when Death Metal was only obscure, rotten and ugly. In that aspect ?Tomb of the Mouldered Corpses? sounds like some of the late 80?s American and Scandinavian Death Metal bands....
Expect no gazing from Italian duo HADIT. Instead, these men from Varese craft abstract and absolutely merciless black death metal. In their twisted minds; the sky, the stars, space and the universe are either the darkest of places or the infinite black hole that constantly threatens to swallow it all and so their music is not only inspired by otherworldly and unreachable dwellings but is a reflection of the gravitational pull, the awful outcomes and the imminent severity of their mental trips.
Established in 2004, Palermo, Italy's Haemophagus have been spreading the death grind disease through two full-length albums plus multiple 7" and CD splits. "Necromantical Death Grind: the Early Years" features all the records they have released between 2004 and 2007. Packed with with abominable band pics, flyers, extensive liner notes and a front artwork drawn by artist Marco Failla, this repulsive piece of plastic shows Haemophagus' innards for all to smell and see. Out on Despise the Sun records exclusively.
