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!
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.
Originally self-released by band in January 2012, the album saw its official CD reissue in April 2013 and now gets a limited vinyl treatment ? both through Polish Hellthrasher Productions. The 12? LP will be available in the edition of 400 black and 100 black/white haze copies packed in a gatefold sleeve with all songs being remastered and re-edited.

Contorted and anguished. Blissed-out and serene. Spasmodic impulses forcing irregular lurches and twitches. There are infinite shades and varieties of death, and yet its certainty and mystery terrify the human soul to its core. Anatomia breathes in the foul stench produced by this final state of human existence and spews it back at the listener. The band?s Death Doom sound captures perfectly the cold immobile grip of mortal expiration.
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...
The highly anticipated debut full-length of this French band. Hailing from the new breed of exquisite French Death Metal darkness, Atavisma formed in late 2013 and promptly set to work perfecting their assiduously doomed-out craft. Founders G. (guitar) and L. (vocals) wanted to create a band devoted to old school Death Metal, and with the addition of C. (drums) and W. (bass) shortly thereafter, the quartet´s compositions progressively shifted towards a Death/Doom Metal approach with a penchant for lyrics that mainly deal with the relationship between man and nature, ancient cultures and spirituality.
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!!

The skull-splitting debut full-length from a German band that perpetuate the odor of vintage Death Metal. Hailing from the bowels of Berlin, Carnal Tomb started out as a duo (Corpse Ripper on bass / vocals and Cryptic Tormentor on vocals / guitars / programming) in 2014 and recently turned into a quartet with the addition of Vomitchrist on drums and Lobotomizer on guitars, only to confer more heaviness and tightness upon their slimy, downtuned, putrescent Death Metal that´s buzzsaw-driven and riddled with gruesome melodies in the best tradition of ancient ghouls such as Nihilist / Entombed, Autopsy, Dismember, Funebre, Grave, Crematory, Convulse, Fleshcrawl and Carnage.

DJINN AND MISKATONIC is one of the most unique Doom Metal bands. Merging Doom Metal with stylings of Sludge, Stoner and even Death/Doom Metal, 'Forever in the Realm' is an exploration of all that is eldritch and dark. No two songs are same, each one crafting its own gritty tale of witchcraft, high adventures and alcoholic excesses.
'Forever in the Realm' is the first release of Transcending Obscurity India (sub-label of Transcending Obscurity).
Drug Honkey is a mind-altering drug that has its effect for days. Its hallucinogenic properties create disturbing changes in your thought patterns. Ghost in the Fire is the culmination of various experiments conducted in the sound room. It is a drug that is to be consumed one song at a time, each one exhibiting a different side-effect. From within the pitch black darkness, haunting images are projected from the buried subconscious to the cold inescapable reality. Floating musical apparitions drift seamlessly through periods of undetermined time, plodding suspenseful momentum and shrieking echoes of possessed souls colour this out-of-mind experience blood red.
Picking up where they left off with their praised 2010 full-length debut, "Ritual Ascension Beyond Flesh", the new book of hymns, "O' Hell, Shine In Thy Whited Sepulchres", redefines and magnifies ENCOFFINATION's signature low-end funeral doom wrapped in the pure stench of death....
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)
