DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN is proud to present ABATUAR's highly anticipated debut album, "Perversiones De Muerte Putrefacta". Panama's preeminent extreme metal export, ABATUAR is the work of one madman named Cadaver. He burst onto the scene in 2014 with the debut demo Vejación de la Bestia, which was followed a year later by another demo, titled Fosa Común. So impressed with ABATUAR's raw 'n' rabid savagery, DUNKELHEIT compiled both demos onto CD format and released it toward the end of 2015, thereby giving this cult the international exposure it so requires. However, from those humble beginnings explodes ABATUAR's sickest and most depraved work yet: Perversiones De Muerte Putrefacta.
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.
The debut full-length of Italy´s Ekpyrosis, "Asphyxiating Devotion". Formed back in 2013 and with their razor-edged claws steadily sunk into the vitriolic and ruthless carnage that Death Metal was meant to be in the late 80´s and early 90´s, this four-headed squad of young deathsters unfold an unquestionable fondness of the ugliness, the malevolence, the decrepitude and the intensity that the early aural blasphemies of acts such as Morbid Angel, Nihilist, Sadistic Intent, Grotesque, Incantation, Necrophobic and Deicide used to be soaked in back in the genre´s heyday. But let it be known that Ekpyrosis in general and "Asphyxiating Devotion" in particular are neither retro nor old school. Rather, the garishness and grime in which both soak ooze from an eternal continuum that never ended in the first place: the Metal of Death is unbending and unyielding, no matter what manner of progression and evolution floats idly by, disregarded by those who revel in timeless filth and fury.
Set to be released blasphemously on Christmas Eve 2016, DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN is proud to present the highly anticipated second album of Germany's GOATBLOOD, ?Veneration of Armageddon?. For the past five years, this chains- and bullet-bedecked power-duo have been polluting the metal underground with their belligerent brand of bestial black/death. A handful of demos as well as a split were vomited forth before GOATBLOOD's momentous debut album, ?Adoration of Blasphemy and War?, in 2015. Ever aptly titled, ?Adoration of Blasphemy and War? soundly put the band on the international map, and proved that new, gnarly twists can be made to the rigorous bestial metal template.
The debut full-length of Chile´s Infamovs, "Under the Seals of Death". Hailing from the city of Coquimbo, the band was formed in late 2014 by drummer A.M (ex-Predator), guitar players S.D and C.H, and F.U on vocal duties. This line-up recorded the "Emanation of Impure Heresies" EP that was released through LMDT Records in October 2015. Later on, C.H left the band and was replaced by R.B (Swarm of Terror). With the addition of F.G (Swarm of Terror) on bass, the band recently recorded their debut full-length album, titled "Under the Seals of Death". Drawing their lyrical and conceptual inspiration from the occult, ancient deities and indigenous culture and history, Infamovs pay homage to the deeds and knowledge of yesteryear through a brand of Death Metal that´s heinous, ruthless, sullen and primitive, influenced by acts such as Incantation, Dominus Xul, Dead Congregation, Imprecation, Immolation, Sadistic Intent, early Deicide and early Morbid Angel.
In our endless quest to push and support current underground acts that perpetuate the odor of vintage Death Metal, Memento Mori summons yet another ponderous beast from the crypts and unleashes it upon mankind: the debut album of Poland´s Martyrdoom, "Grievous Psychosis". Conceived in Warsaw back in 2010, the band went through some lineup changes until they established a solid formation in 2014, including Sociak (vocals), Marol (guitar), Mlynar (guitar / vocals), Artur (bass) and Wasyl (drums). Blending complex, blast-beat driven, darkened Death Metal with slow Doom passages, the band draws its main influences from the likes of Obituary, Immolation, Rippikoulu, Autopsy, Demilich, Triptykon, Cannibal Corpse, Incantation, Hooded Menace, Grave, Disma and Dead Congregation, but they spew all those influences out with renewed vigor.
"In the Name of True Death Metal" is the debut mini-album of MORBID MESSIAH. This work was self-released early in 2016. "In the Name of True Death Metal" is a fresh stench of rotteness that will blow your mind!
As its title unapologeticaly states, "In the Name of True Death Metal" is no more and certainly less DEATH fucking METAL done in the ancient way. Hailing from Mexico, MORBID MESSIAH might be a fairly new horde, but the quartet bleed such authenticity, such a deep understanding of what makes the blood coursing through the Metal of Death so vital, that you'd be forgiven for thinking their debut record came out during the turn of the '90s. No trendy Swedeath worship, no tired Tampa tropes, no boring gore - just utter darkness and filth!
Limited to 500 unites. Released by Morbid Skull Records from El Salvador.
Review on ToMetal.com webzine:
Still blazing in the underground, the long-running Swedish black/death metallers under the name Mordant continue to utilize the work on their country?s history and heritage in making this one of the most ferocious yet melodic albums in the scene. Finally coming back after a five-year break from releases, the group finally prepares it?s third full-length effort released November 30, 2016 on To the Death Records....
The long-awaited debut full-length of this U.S. band. Not much is known about the anonymous aural torturers known as Ruin. The small amount of information that we do know is that the band was formed back in 1991, somewhere in the United States. Due to various members of the band being incarcerated and institutionalized, Ruin was disbanded at some point later that year. Rumors have also swirled that the band members were/are part of some sort of cult. Now free from any obstacles, the Ruin Death Metal machine was re-started again in 2015, and work began in earnest for what was to become their debut album (at last!), "Drown in Blood". With roots firmly planted in utter and complete musical devastation, Ruin´s sonic debauchery is mean, vicious, spiteful, raucous, and sickening Death Metal. Shit-heavy and strewn with shit, their long-brewing "Drown in Blood" is pure and utter ugliness enriched with doomed-out passages, crusty tempos, and sudden blasts that are meant to turn your stomach without care.
The debut full-length of this Chilean band. Hailing from the city of Valparaíso, the band was formed by guitar player JL Olmos (Betrayed, ex-Micosis, ex-Gangrenous) circa 1993-1994 but was put to rest due to JL being involved in several other projects at the time. It wasn´t until 2013 that JL joined bass player/vocalist JH Wilschrey (Sadistic Murder, Acero Letal) and they both resuscitated Soulrot, manifesting their unquestionable inclination towards the Death Metal of yore. This glorious, gangrenous resurrection resulted in the "Horrors from Beyond" demo in 2014 and the "Revelations" EP two years later. Between the two, Soulrot exhibited a lyrical inclination toward H.P. Lovecraft´s cosmogony and the preternatural, and musically inspired by old acts such as Nihilist/Entombed, Carnage, Autopsy, Grave, Necrony, Demigod, Traumatic, Carcass, Nirvana 2002 and Asphyx among others.
