Hailing from Melbourne, HECATOMB formed in 2018 as a duo of guitarist Rick Warkill and vocalist/bassist/drummer Mangressor. Crude and rude, the debut demo "Horrid Invocations" was spit forth as a self-released tape in 2020 - and INVICTUS, renown for finding the wildest and most dangerous acts within underground metal, could not help help but release it on a wider scale.
Indeed, Horrid Invocations is exceedingly deserving of wider recognition, and fucking aptly titled: HECATOMB are the bastard sons of Australia's rich 'n' ribald history of metal extremity. From Slaughter Lord, Sadistik Exekution, and Martire on to GOSPEL OF THE HORNS, VOMITOR, and RAZOR OCCAM, HECATOMB dutifully serve the diabolical blood coursing through this undeniable lineage. Loose and lawless, Horrid Invocations presents one berzerker attack after another, swift and salacious at five songs in 22 minutes, as the duo detonate vulgar malformations of black, death, thrash, and unapologetic METAL. It doesn't relent; it doesn't sound nice; it doesn't care for your comfort. Simply, HECATOMB are maniacs for maniacs: if you don't understand the vernacular, then these Horrid Invocations are NOT for you!

Lucifericon are a study in patience and poise. Founded in 2009, it wasn't until 2012 when the band's first public recording, The Occult Waters EP, reared its shadowy head. Although The Occult Waters was the band's debut, the seemingly "new" Lucifericon was actually comprised of a number of metal scene veterans, its members having done time as Destroyer 666, Pentacle, Malicious Dream, and Excision among others. Naturally, at this stage, the quartet deeply understood the Metal of Death and proceeded to offer a unique, more atmospheric twist on it. Four years later followed another EP, Brimstone Altar, to further critical acclaim. Here, Lucifericon's death metal was blackened to a crisp, its robust recording allowing every evil nuance to spill from the soundfield and further bewitch the eardrums.
Simply but aptly monikered, MALICIOUS are everything their name promises: savage, barbaric, unrelenting, and utterly BERZERK. Formed in 2011 as a four-piece, the band made an auspicious start with the four-song "Mental Illness" demo. But the bands next strike put the name MALICIOUS on the international metal map: Black Fumes, another four-song recording, which received vinyl, CD, and two different cassette pressings over the next couple years. While those subsequent pressings kept the name in the minds of diehards the world over, MALICIOUS' most malicious strike was still to come
It's been four long years since OCCULT BURIAL released their widely celebrated debut album for INVICTUS, Hideous Obscure. Trickles of activity have teased the hordes, first with the two-song Skeletal Laughter 7" and then a two-song digital promo bearing the title Burning Eerie Lore. Lo and behold, between these two releases, those hungry hordes would be able to sample and savor four salacious new songs that would form the foundation of their forthcoming second album, also bearing the title Burning Eerie Lore. Why the repeat of titles? Because it's BURNING EERIE LORE - and it's fucking mandatory early '80s-style Satanic speed metal, just like it was before!
Following 2016's enigmatic "Three Devils Dance" MLP, "Poison Palinopsia" is a sordid wound in reality's distorted veil that spent five restless years aching for a blade to grant it life.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios in Birmingham, England and with cover art contributed once again by the inimitable Daniel Corcuera, the album is a furious and fanatically channeled tempest of feral energy, synonymous in its nightmarish aural attack that seeks to chisel avenues to black inner worlds - a truly fitting soundscape for mans current state of despondent dissonance.
Decimating the godhead to its insipid form, on March 29th, Triumvir Foul returns with its third legion of the triumvirate under the Vrasubatlat banner the Urine of Abomination. This EP is being released in conspiracy with Invictus Productions on CD, 12" vinyl, and cassette tape formats, with 20 Buck Spin handling manufacturing & distribution in North America.
Triumvir Foul returns after their short lull from Spiritual Bloodshed with a four-song exhibition showcasing their more caustic elements to date. Again slightly departing in theme, the Urine of Abomination takes a direct approach in discussing the obliteration of the godhead and humiliating him in piss. Sonically, Urine of Abomnination carries on the sound of Triumvir Foul's more traditional death metal tendencies found on their demo An Oath of Blood and Fire and fuses it with more bestial black/death destruction. Urine of Abomination is the amalgamation of aural hell and fetishistic indignation admonish the godhead and drown it in piss.
