One of the darkest albums of the German Death Metal Underground is finally being repressed: ?O Agios Pethane? by BLOOD, which is THE reference value from 1993. This hybrid of Death Metal and Grind, combined with a little Thrash Metal and Punk is a benchmark of brutal music: a twisted mood, neck-twisting blast passages, sick bass-solos and bellowing vocals are mixed into one single dark brew ? an album that deserves its credit as a legend.
BLOOD is the oldest German Grind band (since 1986!), and amongst acts such as NAPALM DEATH, EXTREME NOISE TERROR and AGTHOCLES one of the oldest bands still in the game! BLOOD never sold their ideals and their soul ? this you can experience listening to ?O Agios Pethane?!
Orange County /Southern California based Death Metal freaks CREMATORY STENCH. A young but rotten band, formed 2014 to conjure a blend of morbid sounds and feelings in the style of L.A.'s own Sadistic Intent and the morbid recordings of Morgoth.
80's rotten gruesome Death Metal bone crushers from Southern California are back with the new EP 'Grotesque Deformities' highly recommended for fans of early DEATH or PESTILENCE ! Five brand new skull crushing songs mixed by Olof Wikstrand (Enforcer) and Cato Bakke (Reptilian, Inculter), mastered by Olof Wikstrand.
"Shells Will Fall" is our tightest and most aggressive album so far. It is also the first album that features the current lineup, which has been together since 2017. The doom elements can still be found, but mostly the material on "Shells Will Fall" is crushing and brutal mid tempo devastation, in the way you can expect from Decaying! Eight songs of pure old school death metal, without any compromises. Ever since our debut "Encirclement" we have been wanting to make a full album that focuses around the Great War. Finally the riffs and the lyrics came together, so to speak, and the stunning artwork from Toderico Art sealed the deal! So, prepare to enter the carnage..
The Finnish Death Metal horde DECAYING unleash their fourth album entitled 'To Cross The Line'. Like the previous albums, 'To Cross The Line' is about war, destruction and its consequences. You can expect 8 new blood-licking songs full of heaviness, depression, melody and catchiness. A musical feast for fans of ASPHYX, BOLT THROWER or HAIL OF BULLETS.
The thematically perfectly realized artwork was created by the italian artist Roberto Toderico (he also created amazing art for SINISTER, PESTILENCE, MEFISTO etc.).
The band recorded 9 new songs plus a special coverversion of Britain's kings of lava-Death Metal BOLT THROWER. But no worries, ENDSEEKER still walks the "left hand path". Expect brutal, fast, aggressive, filthy but catchy Swedish jδvla Dφdsmetall in best manner. The albumtitle sounds like a hammer smashed your face, just 3 words: "Flesh Hammer Prophecy" !!
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered at Chameleon Studios/ Hamburg by Eike Freese and again, he made an fantastic job !!
Albert Che, a very talented artist from Seoul, Korea is responsible for the amazing coverartwork.
Debut full length of this amazing German Death Metal band. Old-school Death Metal with the Swedish touch from the masters ENTOMBED, DISMEMBER, GRAVE and the likes.. This is the re-release from 2016 in black vinyl. Limited to 300 units.
Scalpture from Bielefeld, Germany was founded in 2009 with the intention to play nothing less than Death Metal. According to Bolt Thrower or Hail of Bullets the most fitting theme for Death Metal is war. And war is what is preached! Not a band with its own imagination of a whole new genre.
Scalpture is marching onwards on the familiar road being backed by older and newer bands like Asphyx, Dismember, Entrails, Weak Aside...
After some relocations they started playing live in 2014. Their 4 track EP Border Crossing followed in April ?15. Now in 2016 their first full length album PANZERDOKTRIN is about to be released! Tank riding, artillery firing, infantry storming, moral bombing, border crossing Death Metal. Salute!
