There seem to be many legends of Black Metal - but there are only a few who really live up to that honor. In the late eighties the three possessed servants of Hell of the band MYSTIFIER (Brazil) released their first demos and founded the special sound of Southern American Black and Death Metal. With their raw guitar sound and the hellish vocals they led Metal on paths unknown, deep down into the pits of Hell. Comparisons to VON, SARCOFAGO and HELLHAMMER are legit ? serious business, you get the idea.

Old School Death Metal from Michigan, USA. 8 tracks, 39 mins in the vein of old SUFFOCATION, EMBALMED, CANNIBAL CORPSE. This is the album released back in 1993 only on tape. For the very first time pressed on CD.
Uniting head-spinning musicianship, elaborate arrangements and an acute sense of dynamics within composition, NECROPHAGIST have reset the bar for complexity and technique in modern-day death metal. Their powerful riffs, mind-blowing sweeps and arpeggios, crushing percussion and intricately designed songs are unequalled and uncompromising, unveiling an invincible technicality so sharp and precise, it threatens to bore a hole directly through the heart of the existing progressive death playbook.
Formed back in 1987, NECROPHILE are widely considered to be one of the first Death Metal bands from Japan. The band was formed in 1987 by two high school students, Takaaki Ohkuma (vocals/bass, ex-Criminal Christ and later Multiplex) and Keisuke Matsunaga (guitar/drums, ex-Messiah Death). During their original tenure, they were quite prolific. They recorded two demo tapes in 1988 and 1989 - The Terminal Derangement and Beyond the Truth, respectively - and especially the second demo received a lot of attention in the the worldwide underground scene. Then, with the lineup of Takaaki (bass/vocals), Takashi Tanaka (drumers, later Transgressor and Anatomia) and Kenichi Matsunaga (guitar, later Hellchild), they recorded the Dissociated Modernity EP and a split LP with Singapore's Abhorer, both in 1991, and also played several gigs in the USA with Sadistic Intent, Deceased, and many others; they may be the first Japanese death metal act to play the States...

Utterly deep and dense Black/Doom from this Russian bands. A side project of the BLACKDEATH guys. They call their style "Goat Stoner Metal" but don't be afraid: this has nothing to do with the "Stoner Metal" you know from pussy Magazines. This is utterly dark and dense Black/Doom.
