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.

Re-release of the Demo from 1992 of this outstanding Swedish Death Metal band that practiced a Death Metal more in the vein of first ATHEIST and MORBID ANGEL (especially in the vocals) earlier than other Swedish Death Metals on that time.
The double vinyl version of ESSENZ's masterpiece "KVIITIIVZ - Beschwörung des Unaussprechlichen" is out now! The vinyl comes in a noble 350g gatefold cover with UV-spot and contains a thick inlay. Excellent Doom / Black with members of DROWNED and THE RUINS OF BEVERAST.
Yeah, the Defying Danger Records Vinyl-Series family gets offspring again! The East Westphalian old school Death Metal Lunatics EVOKED are preparing to release their long-awaited debut full lenght album on 27th september 2019. It´s called "Ravenous Compulsion" and has 8 nasty, rambling Death Metal tracks included.
Anyone who has been allowed to admire the disgusting old school Death Metal Trio live or has their demo or the split EP at home, knows exactly which tornado is waiting for you now. An great album that oscillates between Swedish sounding guitar riffs and enraptured, horrendous Doom/Death Metal like prefers from the good old AUTOPSY, but always played in a very own EVOKED style. A few small Black Metal colorings are also to be heard, while the band is sometimes already is nearly swinging and sometimes is only breakneck fast on the road. It is this to the point compositional art that one expects from experienced masters rather than debutantes. But it also shows right from the start that EVOKED are superior to countless upstarts who are content to copy their idols, without writing songs with substance.
A unique, nearly-nameless entity from Sweden, FOR create sepulchral black/death metal from uniquely-located, surely-nameless depths. Their Kundaz debut album appeared seemingly out of nowhere in early 2013, and now arrives the Blakaz Asko Hertô 12" MLP via IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS. Devoted to the Germanic black witch Gullveig and her Thursian bloodline of ravenous hordes of wolves and werewolves, the concept of FOR 's music is based upon the sacred bindrune, Ulfhamir, and pursues to invoke the black wolf-spirit within.
FUNERAL WHORE hails from The Netherlands and is back with their 2nd album "Phantasm". A brutal old school death metal masterpiece you don´t see often: a tribute to "Phantasm", a horror movie from the 80ies. Eleven tracks of brutal, shredding death metal, a nightmare from the abyss of all evil! Limited vinyl edition of 500 copies (300 black / 200 clear purple).
"An album, relentless, pure and evil throughout all of it's 11 murderous tracks. Fundamentalistic roots of old school death metal madness hammering your soul at maximum brutality. A concept built upon the cult classic horror 'Phantasm' and reincarnated by the members of Funeral Whore. THE DEATH METAL NIGHTMARE IS BACK FROM THE ABYSS OF ALL FUCKING EVIL! Make 'em get it!" (FUNERAL WHORE)
Two new songs from this old school maniacs! Dutch FUNERAL WHORE present the song "Traces Of Death" and the Germans OBSCURE INFINTY the tune called "Maniac Destroyer". Killing material and old-school to the bone!
The crushing debut full-length from this Italian ensemble of devoted death metalheads. Formed back in 2012 and seasoned in other Italian Death and Doom Metal bands, FUNEST take pride in keeping the ancient, putrid and uncompromising Death Metal flame alive via crushing and memorable riffs, monstruous growls and a tight-as-fuck rhythm section, that will definitely appeal to fans of bands like NIHILIST/ ENTOMBED, DEATH, GRAVE, AUTOPSY, GOD MACABRE, ASPHYX, CREMATORY, CARNAGE and MASSACRE. Featuring a jaw-dropping artwork and layout by the talented artist Cesar Valladares, and guest vocals by Johan Jansson (INTERMENT, REGURGITATE, UNCANNY, ex-CENTINEX, ex-DEMONICAL, ex-FULMINATION, ex-UNCURBED...) on two songs, "Desecrating Obscurity" is the first yet solid step of a band that will definitely find their own place in the current Death Metal underground scene very soon. Don´t say you weren?t warned!!!
GRAVEYARD delivers a morbid old-school Death Metal version of DARKTHRONE's classic "In The Shadow Of The Horns". CRUCIFYRE delivers, as usual, another old-school Swedish Death Metal punch. This time a cover of the MORBID ANGEL tune "Funerals".
Originally released in 1996 but out of print for many years now, Macabre Requiems was the grand culmination of GROG's hard work in the underground during the early '90s. The band, in fact, was one of the very first extreme metal bands to hail from Portugal, and thereby influenced generations to come. Hearing Macabre Requiems, whether it was during its original release or especially now, it's not difficult to imagine why it was influential: ghastly and grinding, grisly and gutted, the album is pure and total DEATH METAL of a most early '90s vintage, horror-ridden and heavy as fuck. Utterly raw and flesh-ripping, GROG assault the listener with 43 minutes of ungodly deathgrind across these Macabre Requiems, with songs ranging from five minutes to some under a minute, altogether exhibiting a lively and dynamic flow that ends in the listener being completely pulverized!
