The third album from the necromantical masters!
4 years after the Death celebration ?Misfortune?, ABYSMAL GRIEF have returned with their third macabre opus entitled ?Feretri?.

Sinister, macabre and evil, ?Feretri? is another baroque landmark on the terrifying orchetra?s path to eternal doom! Join them in Death!

Death Doom explorers Assumption are ready to sink into outer cosmos again! Following their critically acclaimed EP "The Three Appearances" these three new tracks (clocking around 37 minutes) continue developing the psychedelic aura of the italian band to reach a new level of sonic deviation where visionary Floyd-esque sections are combined with extremely heavy, downtempo riffs.
Initially started in 2011 as a studio-project with David on drums and Giorgio on vocals and all the other instruments, Assumption have managed to set up a live line-up throughout the years, sharing stages with bands such as Esoteric, Demilich, Sub Rosa and so on.
The second coming of Convocation brings us the finnish Doom Death band (feat. members of Desolate Shrine and Dark Buddha Rising) at its bleakest and most majestic peak.
Ashes Coalesce is an album of contrasts and confusion, beautiful yet horrifying.
Mesmerizing and gloomy Doom-Death from the most ghastly recesses of Finland. Merging the composing talents of LL from Desolate Shrine with the multi layered vocals of NM from Dark Buddha Rising, Convocation will haunt you and abrade your guts with the most spectral yet punishing tones you could experience!
Slowly yet surely, CROSS VAULT have built a small-yet-stellar canon of releases that are extremely personal in nature and absolutely poignant in execution and effect. After two acclaimed cult albums - Spectres of Revocable Loss and The All-Consuming in 2014 and 2015, respectively - CROSS VAULT joined with IRON BONEHEAD for the release of a special mini-album, Miles to Take, released in late 2016. Although "just" two songs, this epic short-length was a transitional record in more ways than one: the quintet had solidified its lineup after two members had graduated from "session" status, and the sum result suitably proved stunning, showing how far they could stretch their Viking doom sound whilst keeping it fiercely focused. CROSS VAULT were on the march...
Debut full length. Tumefying and bludgeoning old school death metal/crust punk from Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. CRUZ's music is a sonic horde from hell than can not be repelled. WOLFPACK, WOLFBRIGADE, BOLT THROWER, GRAVE, DISCHARGE, and ENTOMBED bottlenecked into an explosive detonation of rage and filth, built with the sole purpose to reap endless havoc upon human ears and flesh. Behold the legions of hell! Recorded and mixed by Javi Félez (GRAVEYARD) at Moontower Studios. Mastered by Brad Boatright at AudioSiege (NAILS, WEEKEND NACHOS, WAKE, MAGRUDERGRIND) Artwork by César Valladares (ASPHYX, KRISIUN, ANATOMIA, GRAVEYARD, NOMINON, ABYSSUS).
Tracklisting: 1. Mundos Disformes 2. A Cops de Destral 3. Intruso 4. Culto Abismal 5. La Caza 6. La Pitjor de les Plagues 7. Pesanta 8. Tumbas Ciclópeas
In 1991, Dark Opera was formed in Lodz, Poland, the very same city in which the band’s compatriots of similar ilk in Pandemonium had united approximately two years earlier. Dark Opera’s first year of existence was plagued by several lineup changes, but it stabilized later that year when the band began to write its own songs and played its first live gig in Lomza. The following April, Dark Opera recorded its first demo, "The Day of Pariah", at Ariadna Studio in Lodz. Originally, this cassette was self-released, but the band was later signed by Carnage Records, who released a second iteration of the tape with alternate artwork. In 1993, the band added a second guitarist and recorded its first and only album, "Calling the Legend", in April of that same year. Like the demo that had preceded it, the album was released by another Polish label, Baron Records, who made it available on cassette format only. Like the aforementioned Pandemonium, Dark Opera’s music was reminiscent of the great Samael and others like Alastis and Taranis, but it also incorporated a somewhat greater influence from both death and doom metal. Nuclear War Now! is proud to be the first to reissue both Dark Opera recordings on vinyl and thus continue its neverending objective of rekindling the great fires once set and then left unattended in the most obscure caverns of the underground.
Formed in 2009, ENCOFFINATION is the sepulchral embodiment of rancid death. Crushing, suffocating death metal doom of the lowest caliber. Named for the ritual preparation of the dead for burial, ENCOFFINATION exists below the plane of mortality; deep within the realms of death and decay. Slowly they lurch forth with their educated form of blasphemy, occult, and ritualistic expulsion of the holy from the earth.
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)
The 4th album of suffocation and oppresive funereal death metal from these purveyors of wretched doom. Accept no imitation or falsehoods. Formed by members of death metal bands FATHER BEFOULED and DECREPITAPH (among many others). A must have for fans of INCANTATION, RIPPIKOULU, MORPHEUS DESCENDS, DISEMBOWELMENT.
The double vinyl version of ESSENZ's masterpiece "KVIITIIVZ - Beschwörung des Unaussprechlichen" is out now! The vinyl comes in a noble 350g gatefold cover with UV-spot and contains a thick inlay. Excellent Doom / Black with members of DROWNED and THE RUINS OF BEVERAST.
After a five-year-long hiatus during which the band did not apparently perish in the swamps of mouldy and slugdy death metal, Eternal Rot start where they left off with the Promo 2013. Aptly titled ?Cadaverine?, the album features a four tracks and almost 30 minutes of filthy and dirty, slow to mid-paced hymns of doom and death. Gnarly and slightly distorted vocals, down-tuned guitars and gut-wrenching bass parts, all based on solid drumming, is everything a die hard fan might expect... The horde crawl out of the tomb they have dwelled for the past five years, offering some organ crushing, mind blowing and sickening metal of death stripped to the bone. A true must for any fan of old school masters.
With ?Rumors Of Man?, Goat Explosion follow the path they pursued in 2015 that led them through traditional riffing of early Heavy and Doom Metal through the winding depths of Stoner Rock. Accompanied and perfected by outstanding vocals that tinge the music with a melancholic touch, the diversity, and sovereignty of this record will blow you away like the weed you probably just smoked.
With members of DIVISION SPEED, ex-EVIL WARRIORS, ex-VIDARGÄNGR among others.
