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.

GRAVEYARD GHOUL?s 3rd album is a morbid fuckin? bastard with unpolished sound and growls that sound like coming straight from a late 80?s/early 90?s rotten grave!

The Sound is still rancid like you love it from the debut. For total music enjoying don't use high end equipment, this music was created for old school standard stereo equipment. Throw your subwoofers away and enter the "Living Cemetery".

INCARCERATION is surely one of the most intense Death Metal acts worldwide. Did you ever see a Incarceration live ritual on stage? You should, it's insane, it's fast, bloody and straight forward Death Metal deeper than to the bone. You can feel their power and passion the whole set long. Now the time has come to unleash this beast on CD and vinyl. The beast contains 10 brandnew songs and called ?CATHARSIS?. You can expect brutal, fast, catchy, intense and insane Death Metal. INCARCERATION built their own style of Death Metal.
Yes, this dutch men´s they have what it takes. From early days, till now - nothing has changed. Here is a fine new trio from the land of tulips with 4 tracks in the old style Death Metal of the 90s. The vocals sound raw & hoarse like Mr. Van Drunen at that time, the tunes just also extremely anachronistic. Old heroes like MASSACRE, DISMEMBER & HELLHAMMER shine through here again and again.
INFAMY has finally made it on album after the death of their main-man Joshua Heatley. This album is a fitting tribute to him. INFAMY does orthodox, technical Death Metal. End of story. The overall quality is good. I am afraid this album will only appeal to Death Metal fans. Only die-hard Death Metal fans understand the fine details in this album. Those who like melodic music will loathe this album.
At long last, INFERNAL CURSE reveal their highly anticipated second album, Apocalipsis, set for release on vinyl LP via IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS. Hailing from the oft-overlooked scene of Argentina, INFERNAL CURSE are a study in patience and defiance. Forming in 2008, early on, the band's sound was strictly within the blown-out blackthrash characteristic of South America's most-underground metal, culminating in the clattering 'n' chaotic Awakening of the Damned debut LP in 2012. However, it was with the IRON BONEHEAD-released mini-album The End Upon Us in 2014 where INFERNAL CURSE truly found their stride. Reigning in the chaos for a more pulsing form of barbarity, the power-trio were as violent and virulent as ever, but pushed the still-overwhelming physicality into the beyond.
"The End Upon Us"...so proclaim Argentinean black/death cult INFERNAL CURSE with their new 12" MLP. Across four swift slices of barbaric bestiality, this power-trio paints a vivid portrait of a future most fatal. Explosions of subharmonic riff, drums driven with animalistic abandon, sepulchral voices plumbing the depths of the abyss, and chaotic leads divebombing into and out of the metaphysical carnage: here, INFERNAL CURSE up-ratchet all the aspects that made their Awakening of the Damned debut so deadly, rendering The End Upon Us a study in deeply occult savagery. This is The End Upon Us...
Released by Witching Hour.
Description taken from Metal-Archives.com:
Oh yes, ?Damned Majesty? sounds very much like early Graveland stuff: raw and hateful black metal with freezing synths. I?m a huge fan of old Graveland and consequently this stuff blew me away as well. Anextiomarus? vocals sound exactly like Rob Darken, being fantastically cruel. It?s fascinating that someone other than Rob Darken can sound so much like him. Had someone played this to me without telling which band it was, I would?ve guessed it was Graveland. Keyboardist Icaunis (Rob Darken) uses the same type of freezing keyboard sound that he used on ?Carpathian Wolves?. This gives the music a very cold and evil feeling, just like on early Graveland releases.
