Crushing and morbid old school Death Metal from Finland. Primitive and Barbaric, this bands sound harks back to the very early 90's, a time before cubase, polished productions and over technical wankery! For fans of DEMIGOD, DEMILICH, MORTICIAN, etc...
The jaw-dropping debut album from this U.S. band. Formed back in 2008 as Tenspeed Warlock, Shrine of the Serpent have been going under their current moniker since 2014. Comprised of past and current members of Aldebaran, Graves At Sea, Sod Hauler and Roanoke among others, this three-headed leviathan from Portland, Oregon conjure up visions of utmost ominousness and malodorous dreariness as a celebration of the inevitable, when life ceases to be and there´s nothing but a palpable somberness shrouding your passing to the other, unfathomable side.
The chosen guide for such a cryptic journey is über-heavy, gloomy and miserable Death/Doom Metal. When faced with such a fate, one can only help to prepare to be crushed under the weight of utterly monolithic riffs enhanced by tortured growls, ritualistically pounding drumming and eerie-as-fuck harmonies. Ultimately, this is but the sound of "Entropic Disillusion". Although more fertile now than any time in the past, true Death/Doom Metal is still a field that´s tricky to plow: lumber too long and you arrive at boredom; spice up the formula and you lose the necessary desolation.
The band was formed on January 2002 by George Antipatis (guitars, vocals), Ilias Daras (bass) and George Kollias (drums, Nightfall). After a very short time the band started completing its first songs which were floating around technical Death Metal forms in the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Death and Atheist.

SUTURA is a Death/Black Metal band from Nova Friburgo, in the mountainous region of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Influenced mainly by the Scandinavian and Brazilian Extreme Metal scene. In "Dawn of Cursed Souls", the band follows the line of the debut album, Clasta (low tuning with fast picks, strong distortion in the chainsaw style, guttural high and low vocals, and a well-marked combination of bass and drums); with a sound based on Old School Death Metal and Black Metal, however, this new work shows a more defined and striking equalization, with an instrumental tone and reverberated vocal that refer to the recordings of the 80s' and early 90s'.
Packed in digisleeve and featuring all new artwork / design, plus their track from the split EP with Antediluvian as bonus. All carefully remastered by VK.

Their debut recording ‘Prophecies of Malevolence’ originally got released on CD in a limited amount of copies by the band’s own label Adverse Order Music and soon after got the attention of Nuclear Winter Records who re-issued it on vinyl and also took care of their next album ‘Condemnation’ on CD / LP (Nuclear Winter Records / Europe, Dark Descent Records / Americas). The band’s growing reputation led to a multi album deal with Iron Bonehead Productions and several live shows all over the world.
