THERE´S NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR SPEAKERS - IT´S ONLY MINCECORE FROM HELLGIUM!
"Mincing through the maples" contains some great raw Agathocles tracks that were recorded live on 19th August 2015 at the "Coalition" club in Toronto, Canada. Many of the favorite Agathocles songs are in the setlist and the sound captures all the spirit of this gig. Agathocles had much trouble in Canada, therefore for the band this is a release to say thanks to all the people who have been so helpful, caring and supportive when they played there. You can read the full story at the liner notes written by Jan AG.
This is the split 7" from Arizona's LAGO and Poland's CALM HATCHERY featuring one new song from each band. This split release is released in cooperation between SELFMADEGOD RECORDS from Poland and BATTLEGROUND RECORDS from USA.
LAGO delivers a ferocious brew of classic but modernized death metal, surrounded in a blackened fog, wholly bearing an oppressive atmosphere.
CALM HATCHERY overthrows the B-side of this split with a vital slab of decimation, ?Distant Pulsation.? Continuing to revitalize their brutality with each release, the band unloads a shredding, brutal death metal wrought with bursts of technicality and grindcore-influenced tactics.
This is a must have for fans of classic and brutal death metal in the vein of IMMOLATION, BEHEMOTH, MORBID ANGEL, SUFFOCATION.

1st full length album by this german band that?s a bastard hybrid between Death & Doom with a fucking heavy and rotting sound, heavily inspired by bands like AUTOPSY, WINTER, DERKETA, UNDERGANG, early ASPHYX, HELLHAMMER...
Norwegian duo, DARKTHRONE, return with their first new studio material since 2013's triumphant "The Underground Resistance".
Fenriz and Nocturno Culto once more show their mastery of "the riff", demonstrating why DARKTHRONE remain one of the most respected and enduring acts in the history of extreme Metal.
An eclectic mix of free-spirited 1980's fuelled blackened hHeavy Metal executed in Darkthrone's trademark raw and organic style, "Arctic Thunder" was recorded and produced by the band, with the sessions conducted at Darkthrone's old rehearsal unit, The Bomb Shelter, which they had originally used during 1988-1990.
With themes based around hate, contempt, and the inner mind and soul, plus the notable presence of Nocturno Culto on vocal duties across all songs for the first time in recent years, "Arctic Thunder" retains a grim atmosphere throughout the album's 8 tracks.
Second full-length album, old school Death Metal from Colombia.
9 dark tracks make their way from the hate filled shadows, pungent existentialism and visceral forcefulness. This piece of crude and dense Death Metal is the gloomy reflection of death itself embodying the sounds of the roots of the genre.

UNHOLY PROPHECIES is proud to present MORBID FLESH's highly anticipated second album, ?Rites of the Mangled?. Proudly Catalonian, this Barcelona-based band is fitingly named, for they are authentically and unequivocally morbid, old-school DEATH fuckin' METAL. Which is all not that surprising considering MORBID FLESH's membership includes scene veterans who do time in such hordes as INSULTERS, GRAVEYARD, ÓSSERP, CUERNO, TORT and SHEIDIM among others. What results is a mammoth, elephantine bulldozer of disgusting, disease-drenched Death Metal in a most classic Swedish manner.
Formed back in 1987, NECROPHILE are widely considered to be one of the first Death Metal bands from Japan. The band was formed in 1987 by two high school students, Takaaki Ohkuma (vocals/bass, ex-Criminal Christ and later Multiplex) and Keisuke Matsunaga (guitar/drums, ex-Messiah Death). During their original tenure, they were quite prolific. They recorded two demo tapes in 1988 and 1989 - The Terminal Derangement and Beyond the Truth, respectively - and especially the second demo received a lot of attention in the the worldwide underground scene. Then, with the lineup of Takaaki (bass/vocals), Takashi Tanaka (drumers, later Transgressor and Anatomia) and Kenichi Matsunaga (guitar, later Hellchild), they recorded the Dissociated Modernity EP and a split LP with Singapore's Abhorer, both in 1991, and also played several gigs in the USA with Sadistic Intent, Deceased, and many others; they may be the first Japanese death metal act to play the States...
This was one of the very first bands from Colombia playing Death / Thrash back in 1986 (!!). This is their Demo from 1990 released by EPIDEMIA RECORDS and distributed by NUCLEAR WAR NOW and TRIBULACION PRODUCTIONS.

POSSESSED are hailed as the godfathers of the Death Metal genre. They are considered by some to be the first Death Metal band and that the name of the genre comes from their first demo, entitled "Death Metal".
DualDisc compilation with demos, rehearsals and live material from the 80's.
ROTTING CHRIST have stood the test of time. "Rituals" is an album that has obviously been written by veterans. The Greek legends inject a 27-year career, 12 albums, and more than 1.200 shows into their songwriting. With confidence and skills derived from experience, each song represents its own sonic universe. Guitarist / vocalist Sakis Tolis and brother Themis on drums achieve a perfect balance of amalgamating their classic and unique style of riffing and rhythm with exciting new elements sprinkled in to keep their material exciting and fresh.
Carefully chosen guests are being added for better effect, not name dropping such as the spoken words of Nick Holmes (PARADISE LOST) on "A Voice Like Thunder" or SAMAEL's Vorph mesmerizingly quoting from Charles Baudelaire's "Les Fleurs Du Mal" throughout the song "Les Litanies De Satan". Goosebumps moments such as these are liberally sprinkled throughout the record, which manages the feat to sound rock solid and made out of one heavy piece as well as diverse and far ranging at the same time. The experienced is enhanced by Jens Bogren's equally clear and transparent yet also massive as well as sombre mix and mastering at his widely renowned Fascination Street Studios (AMORPHIS, BORKNAGAR, MOONSPELL, DEVIN TOWNSEND, and many more).
Third full length album of this awesome Death Metal band from Poland. Without any doubt, the best album of this band so far. This is a MUST for fans of the Swedish-old-school Death Metal like DISMEMBER / ENTOMBED. Totally recommended.
Released by Arachnophobia Records it comes in a slipcase.
