Belgian mince kings AGATHOCLES return with a brand new 2016 studio album in their plus 30-years period of musical and rock star destruction. 35 raw, nihilistic, short mincecore songs in 34 minutes. Including a cover song of one of the best veteran Brazilian punk bands DESNUTRICAO. Simply put this is top-notch AGx release comparable to evergreen full lengths like "Black Clouds Determinate", "Razor Sharp Daggers" and "Grind Is Protest".
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.

Third full album of this Greek band self-described as "astrogrind". 9 songs of dark and violent mixture of Death Metal, Grindcore and even Black Metal. The concept and aesthetics draw influences from cosmology, astronomy and science fiction literature, as well as the associated sociopolitical and existential repercussions. For fans of CHERUBS, TERRORIZER, REGURGITATE, INSISION with a black metal touch.
"The band exists between dimensions; thematically with their sci-fi influences, but also sonically. It is a balancing act between different worlds of extreme metal. From the brutality of death metal and the volatility of grindcore, to the venomous touch of blackened influences and the attitude of hardcore, Dephosphorus mould these diverse worlds into a fiery result." - CVLT Nation
Picking up where they left off with their praised 2010 full-length debut, "Ritual Ascension Beyond Flesh", the new book of hymns, "O' Hell, Shine In Thy Whited Sepulchres", redefines and magnifies ENCOFFINATION's signature low-end funeral doom wrapped in the pure stench of death....
Formed in 2009, ENCOFFINATION is the sepulchral embodiment of rancid death. Crushing, suffocating death metal doom of the lowest caliber. Named for the ritual preparation of the dead for burial, ENCOFFINATION exists below the plane of mortality; deep within the realms of death and decay. Slowly they lurch forth with their educated form of blasphemy, occult, and ritualistic expulsion of the holy from the earth.
REISSUE OF THE DEBUT FULL LENGTH W/ THREE BONUS SONGS TAKEN FROM "Temples Descend Below the Earth" EP (Archasm Releasing 2010). "My kind of music. Utter darkness, a bottomless pit of night. Unapologetic underground metal at its best and most captivating" - Tom G. Warrior (TRIPTYKON, CELTIC FROST, HELLHAMMER)
