Abysmal Grief have returned from the grave with their fourth full length album entitled ?Strange Rites of Evil?. Celebrating their 20th anniversary this year and with no signs of slowing down, this orchestra of necromantical doom have become one of the most persistent both in terms of consistency and following their very own vision.
Reunited with original drummer Lord of Fog, ?Strange Rites of Evil? shows the band from their most vile and scornful side while still keeping intact the sound they have come to be known for.
So you thought WARHAMMER, APOCALYPTIC RAIDS or HELLKOMMANDER were the only true heirs to HELLHAMMER and CELTIC FROST throne didn?t you?! Surely, formed in 2009, Florence?s BARBARIAN also namechecked RUNNING WILD or early BATHORY as one of t...heir main influences but come on, as soon as the first notes of ?Serve In Heaven, Reign In Hell? hit you off and ?Borys Crossburn? lets go his first ?ugh!? of the day, you know what the score is and as Tom G. Warrior would have say himself, the usurper?s tears surely guide their sword. Just look up at each of those three Italians? role in the band: ?necroharmonic guitarmageddon and invocations of baltic storms and polish metal albums?, ?eruptions of evil from cracked earth? and ?fuck off bombardment?. Indeed, only 1984 is real!!
Limited to 500 copies. Mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement Studio, Italy (mastering on Cd and tape version is different) Includes 4 pages insert, A3 poster, outer plastic bag with sticker
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 a collection of various split releases on vinyl, CD's and tape formats WHIPSTRIKER contributed to during the years 2012 and 2015. Brazilian Old School Heavy, Speed Black Metal Punks. Highly recommended for fans of early VENOM and of course WHIPSTRIKERRRRRRRRR!
74 minutes of pure Blasphemous Mayhem! Released through VULKAN RECORDS.
