Hailing from North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, ABYTHIC formed in 2015 and soon recorded & released their first demo, A Full Negation of Existence. Aptly titled, the demo portrayed four foul tracks of churning death metal of a most early '90s mold. Alas, that was an all-too-brief teaser for Beneath Ancient Portals, the band's full-length debut. Also aptly titled, Beneath Ancient Portals sees ABYTHIC taking the demo's same rudiments - patient and pulsing riffing, linear composition, an emphasis on doomy downtempo segments - and brings them to fuller fruition, diving deeper and deadlier into thundering, desolate DOOM. In many ways, Beneath Ancient Portals often recalls the proud 'n' powerful class of mid-period Bolt Thrower, Asphyx, Grave, and Pentacle, so hypnotically heaving is their dreadnought weight here. But in other ways, ABYTHIC put their own stamp on doomy death metal through a potently occult aura...or one that sounds like a crypt slowly opening, all before a rust- and blood-covered tank rolls forward out of it, crushing all in its path. It's simply mesmerizing either way.
Japan's DEFILED have delivered brutal death metal for over 13 years, and their new album 'Towards Inevitable Ruin' honors that solemn tradition. The band buck modern convention and deliver an album devoid of fake edits, effects, and unnatural sounds. Simply stated, 'Towards Inevitable Ruin' is the most authentic and raw representation of DEFILED as they deliver their deathly assault live.
More aggressive, more raw and even more radical than ever before, Dekapited recorded their most powerful record with this MLP "Sin Misericordia"! Four new tracks of pure savage thrashing aggression the south american way!! This is the first release with the new line-up after the split with former vocalist "Ignacio" - vocals were done by Camilo (guitars) now and strengthened by Cristián Contreras (Evil Madness/Invincible Force) on lead guitars! True south american Thrash Metal in its purest and oldest form... expect no mercy!!! (Fukk Off "Party-Thrash"!!!)
The return of INFANT DEATH! "Total Hell" is the ultimate fitting title for the 2nd album from this Raw, occult Thrash/ Speed Metal band from Trondheim, Norway! If you were amazed by the Speed and brutality of their debut-album "War" - prepare for complete onslaught on "Total Hell"!
Taken from Stereokiller.com: "The mixture of Speed Metal and early blackened Thrash are met with one of the most natural analog outputs possible for this style today in one of the most violent outbursts the underground has to offer. Whether you want to just cut lose alone, incite a flash mosh pit, or commit acts so heinous you'd land on the NSA's watch list, or the no fly lists at the very least, you owe it to yourself to make Total Hell the soundtrack to those very moments"
Uniting head-spinning musicianship, elaborate arrangements and an acute sense of dynamics within composition, NECROPHAGIST have reset the bar for complexity and technique in modern-day death metal. Their powerful riffs, mind-blowing sweeps and arpeggios, crushing percussion and intricately designed songs are unequalled and uncompromising, unveiling an invincible technicality so sharp and precise, it threatens to bore a hole directly through the heart of the existing progressive death playbook.
The second full-length album of German band. New material, even more harsh and gloomy is professionally produced and ready both to bring joy to old fans of traditional doom-death metal and to attract interest of those who just has started to get familiar with the genre. ?Withered Shades? accumulated heavy riffs and acoustic passages, combined dynamic parts and atmospheric interludes.
Triple gatefold released by Frontcore Records. Includes a poster as well.
Death/Thrash attack from the 90ies. This legendary Argentine band was formed back in 1990 and this CD includes their Demo "Future We'll Be Living In...Autodestruction" from 1991, 2 rare studio tracks from 1990 and 4 live tracks from a show from 1991 including a SEPULTURA cover.
THRONEUM was formed in the very deepest basement of hell back in 1996. Influenced by thousands of deaths in the 80ies and beginning of the 90ies and the Black Metal, THRONEUM is one of the best know bands from the Polish underground.
True metalheads know this band and they don't need any more introductions. This full length from 2007 is a fucking killer record from this outstanding Black/Death Metal band!
