In 2013 Doomentia Records released this split in vinyl format. This is the first time ever this release is available in CD format.
But here the truth exceeds these dogmas and this doesn?t apply to GROG.
Releasing their 4th length their capability to create and play above their uttermost limits reaches another level and that?s not the expected standard for these cases. ABLUTIONARY RITUALS is not only the natural evolution from the acclaimed SCOOPING THE CRANIAL INSIDES but also takes the band to a new extent of musical madness.
Originally released in 1996 but out of print for many years now, Macabre Requiems was the grand culmination of GROG's hard work in the underground during the early '90s. The band, in fact, was one of the very first extreme metal bands to hail from Portugal, and thereby influenced generations to come. Hearing Macabre Requiems, whether it was during its original release or especially now, it's not difficult to imagine why it was influential: ghastly and grinding, grisly and gutted, the album is pure and total DEATH METAL of a most early '90s vintage, horror-ridden and heavy as fuck. Utterly raw and flesh-ripping, GROG assault the listener with 43 minutes of ungodly deathgrind across these Macabre Requiems, with songs ranging from five minutes to some under a minute, altogether exhibiting a lively and dynamic flow that ends in the listener being completely pulverized!
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.

HARMONY DIES, the underground cult Death Metal band from Berlin, celebrate their Death Metal sickness since 1992. The last sign of life there was in 2003 with the 3rd Album "Impact", which was still published on the legendary german label Morbid Records.
Their line-up changed several times & after a long break, they joined together in 2012 to spark some more brutal Death Metal stuff. Now, after almost never-ending 13 long years, we are proudly present here the new album "Indecent Paths Of A Ramifying Darkness" which includes 6 brandnew tracks!

Long awaited 3rd full length CD of this northamerican cult Death Metal band from the 90's. Old-school as fuck!
31 minutes murderous Death Metal with elements of Grind. First album. For fans of old school like playing. Horror, gore, death, torture. Limit 500 copies.
Debut full length of this bestial Death/Black Metal band from Argentina. A solid debut of this band reminiscent of Argentine elite band INFERNAL CURSE. When I listen to this stuff I also hear some HELLHAMMER in it. If you like the INFERNAL CURSE stuff you will like this one as well.
The terrific 3rd full-length by this notable Melbourne based band. Borne out of the members desire to see a resurgence of a heavier, more dissonant style of Death Metal back in 2006, Ignivomous were among the first wave of bands to reignite interest in the genre in the first decade of this century. "Hieroglossia" preserves the core membership of the band present throughout its tenure -Sean Hinds (guitar), Chris Broadway (drums) and Jael Edwards (vocals)- and presents the recording debut of Lewis Fischer (Altars) on guitar and Chris Jordon (Inverloch, Eskhaton) on bass, both of whom have cemented the band´s live assault for the previous few years in a campaign of high-profile shows in their native Australia.
Debut full length of this devastating Brazilian Death Metal band from Salvador in Bahia. This is the same band that after this full length, a split in the same year and a short hiatus later changed their moniker into POISONOUS.
Yes, this dutch men´s they have what it takes. From early days, till now - nothing has changed. Here is a fine new trio from the land of tulips with 4 tracks in the old style Death Metal of the 90s. The vocals sound raw & hoarse like Mr. Van Drunen at that time, the tunes just also extremely anachronistic. Old heroes like MASSACRE, DISMEMBER & HELLHAMMER shine through here again and again.
