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?. For nearly two decades these lords of funerals have evoked gloomy musical portraits of Death like no other band, and their grotesque, necromantic hymns reach a new disturbing zenith with this occult masterpiece.
Sinister, macabre and evil, ?Feretri? is another baroque landmark on the terrifying orchetra?s path to eternal doom! Join them in Death!
A CD that compiles the two demos of this cult Mexican band: "Matter misericordiae" (1993) and "Exothaernium" (1994). Atmospheric Doom/Death Metal with a blackened aura of the highest order like a mix of Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Paradise Lost, Tiamat, Katatonia...
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!!

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.

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.
The Finns God Disease created with their long awaited debut album 'Drifting Towards Inevitable Death' the soundtrack to a never-ending winter, full of melancholy and filthy brutality. Expect gnawed-by-rotten-maggots Death/Doom Metal at it's best.

Arcane Deathdoomcult JADE make their debut advent with the oppressive yet otherworldly ?Smoking Mirror? EP, a summoning of strong atmospheric quiver under blackened articulations.
With the name derived from the rare ancient Chinese and South-Asian greenstone, JADE brought that influence perfectly into the sorcerous sound of Death Metal; channeling an ethereal sense of triumphant darkness.

It was but the beginning of 2016 when German black/death alchemists KHTHONIIK CERVIIKS released their critically acclaimed debut album, SeroLogiikal Scars (Vertex of Dementiia), on vinyl through IRON BONEHEAD. The years since that literally scarring display of blown-mind metal mastery may seem quiet, but the band in fact released an equally challenging split LP with comrades Howls of Ebb during the summer of 2017, also through IRON BONEHEAD, whetting appetites for their grandest strike yet...
