Baphomet's Blood is a speed metal band out of Italy and has released their latest album titled "In Satan We Trust". Released on January 25th, 2016, this album marks their 4th full-length with a couple of EPs and demos sprinkled in along the way. Baphomet's Blood has been on the scene for just over ten years and this release proves their veteran status. To be honest, there isn't one bad or mediocre track on this fantastic record. Buy and rock hard!
A unique, nearly-nameless entity from Sweden, FOR create sepulchral black/death metal from uniquely-located, surely-nameless depths. Their Kundaz debut album appeared seemingly out of nowhere in early 2013, and now arrives the Blakaz Asko Hertô 12" MLP via IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS. Devoted to the Germanic black witch Gullveig and her Thursian bloodline of ravenous hordes of wolves and werewolves, the concept of FOR 's music is based upon the sacred bindrune, Ulfhamir, and pursues to invoke the black wolf-spirit within.
At long last, INFERNAL CURSE reveal their highly anticipated second album, Apocalipsis, set for release on vinyl LP via IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS. Hailing from the oft-overlooked scene of Argentina, INFERNAL CURSE are a study in patience and defiance. Forming in 2008, early on, the band's sound was strictly within the blown-out blackthrash characteristic of South America's most-underground metal, culminating in the clattering 'n' chaotic Awakening of the Damned debut LP in 2012. However, it was with the IRON BONEHEAD-released mini-album The End Upon Us in 2014 where INFERNAL CURSE truly found their stride. Reigning in the chaos for a more pulsing form of barbarity, the power-trio were as violent and virulent as ever, but pushed the still-overwhelming physicality into the beyond.
"The End Upon Us"...so proclaim Argentinean black/death cult INFERNAL CURSE with their new 12" MLP. Across four swift slices of barbaric bestiality, this power-trio paints a vivid portrait of a future most fatal. Explosions of subharmonic riff, drums driven with animalistic abandon, sepulchral voices plumbing the depths of the abyss, and chaotic leads divebombing into and out of the metaphysical carnage: here, INFERNAL CURSE up-ratchet all the aspects that made their Awakening of the Damned debut so deadly, rendering The End Upon Us a study in deeply occult savagery. This is The End Upon Us...
Following on from last year's critically acclaimed "His Best Deceit" Demo, Belgian black/death cult POSSESSION return with a highly anticipated 7" EP, cryptically titled "Anneliese". Fans and critics worldwide thrilled to the feral, bloodlusting violence across "His Best Deceit", but here on the two-song "Anneliese" 7", POSSESSION boldly prove that their diabolic force extends into more haunting realms. No less hysteric, the reined-in thrust on these two tracks pounds 'n' plods into the most fucked-up dungeon mortal ears will hear. Less a statement of "heavy metal" and more a ritual of unspeakable horror, Anneliese shows that POSSESSION are just beginning to stoke the hellfires of immortality... (description by Nathan T. Birk)

IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a special 12" MLP from TEMPLE BELOW entitled The Dark Goddess. A pan-international entity spanning South America and Europe, TEMPLE BELOW brand their music "Black Magic Metal of Death" and appropriately summon sulfurous atmosphere and bestial madness, their sound brimming with gnarling violence and in-the-red hysteria. With four years between releases, TEMPLE BELOW are not ones to rush things, and that patience to their black-magick craft pays off with The Dark Goddess: three tracks of gibbering, pulsing possession occasionally stretched to epic ends and one haunting soundscape of evil entrantment, all as it should be and in demonic harmony, altogether creating a Lovecrafting landscape of nameless horrors and eldritch energy.
Germany?s The Fog is an intense three-piece unit that plays some very good Doom/Death metal.
THE FOG down pick away to destruction on Perpetual Blackness. The vocals on here are quite intense. The occasional uppicks and transition riffs scale up the fretboard punk-style. I?d perhaps describe their style as venerable doom act COFFINS meets Finland?s underrated Lantern in a back alley brawl. If you?re a fan of doom/death, this is one record to check out.
Formed just a year ago, Ireland's VIRCOLAC come storming out of the gates with their debut demo, Codex Perfida. Comprising veterans from the Irish metal scene, VIRCOLAC exhibit the poise and maturity that their combined experience suggests, their Metal of Death ranging various locales and eras whilst remaining an expression that's uniquely their own. At once cosmic and grounded in filth, bulldozing and palpitating, doomed-out and disgusting, Codex Perfida is a four-song study of contrasts, set amongst a haunting 'n' harrowing soundfield and shot through with violent execution. International death metal has a fiery new contender: VIRCOLAC are just getting started.
