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.
"We Are The Plague" is a fierce overdose of Blackened Death/Thrash the old, putrid way. A violent outbreak of blasphemy, intolerance and hate. Inspired by the mighty pioneers from the days when the line between Black and Death Metal was too thin to make any distinctions between them, as well as some of the late 80s / early 90s Death Metal hordes, the old Satanic Thrash Metal classics, and a slight influence of the UK82 and other European old HC Punk scenes, smashing the face of the trendy MetalPunk waves we have suffered during the recent years. Insulters, Masters of the Sin, will take no prisoners. Hail the Plague!
"Sorcery" is hell of a brutal, insane and epic album with occult lyrical content, it causes vicious and morbid feelings. "Sorcery" is NOT catchy, this is true "Northern Hyperblast"! An excellent Death Metal record of its genre, and one of exceptionally high caliber for its period, a real masterpiece from 1995.
Following in the footsteps of their previous releases came "Temple Of Knowledge (Kataklysm Part III)", the second full-length sonic assault by Canadian hyperblasters KATAKLYSM, released in 1996. With this album the quartet KATAKLYSM delivered one of the most explosive Death Metal releases back then. Crushing riffs and nice melodies are backed by ferocious drumming with a focus on blastbeats. The vocals are in lay man's terms "Animalistic", and inhumanly fast as well.
Released under Inverse Dogma Records, this new EP by the American Deathsters KILLING ADDICTION is limited to 350 units. It contains two new songs called "Promethean" and "Legacies Of Terror". Black vinyl, four-panel layout.
Release in 2-LP with gatefold cover and 6 bonus of the 2nd opus of this bizarre Thrash/Black war machine from Spain. Superior in every sense to their already killer debut, this is the real sound of fucking evil and raw Axe Thrash!! Think of SODOM, BATHORY, HELLHAMMER, very early VOIVOD, DARKTHRONE, BULLDOZER?
New album from these underground survivors of MASTER! MASTER are one of the most well known and longest running Death Metal acts on the planet. It definitely needs no introduction. Pure old-school Death Metal from these pioneers of the scene.
The great cover artwork for "An Epiphany of Hate" was created by artist Mark Cooper.
MEGASCAVENGER is the spawn of inexhaustible Swedish maniac Rogga Johansson, known for his endless work in acts including PAGANIZER, RIBSPREADER, DEMIURG, THE GROTESQUERY, BONE GNAWER, REVOLTING and more. The latest resume to his ever-expanding arsenal, MEGASCAVENGER is where Johansson spews out his death metal dreams by recruiting the talents of some legendary death metal figureheads.
Second full length of this awesome brutal band from Chile. The Sequeida brothers (ex-DOMINUS XUL) are back with an A-W-E-S-O-M-E album. Only released on 12" vinyl by Australis Records from Chile. If you like Death Metal then you will love this album!
A worthy succesor of their previous release. They continue with their unique brand of D-Beat laced Death Metal, now with more complex and powerful song structures expanding their musical horizon into new unchartered territories.
UNHOLY PROPHECIES is proud to present MORBID FLESH's highly anticipated second album, ?Rites of the Mangled?. Proudly Catalonian, this Barcelona-based band is fitingly named, for they are authentically and unequivocally morbid, old-school DEATH fuckin' METAL. Which is all not that surprising considering MORBID FLESH's membership includes scene veterans who do time in such hordes as INSULTERS, GRAVEYARD, ÓSSERP, CUERNO, TORT and SHEIDIM among others. What results is a mammoth, elephantine bulldozer of disgusting, disease-drenched Death Metal in a most classic Swedish manner.
One of the first records NWN! released was MORBOSIDAD's magnificent blasphemic self-titled opus and the relationship between NWN! and MORBOSIDAD has endured for more than a decade. Although MORBOSIDAD formed in 1993, the band only released two demos before the death of drummer Yegros forced the band into a torpor that lasted for several years until Tomas Stench reassembled a line-up to record what would become the band?s debut album. Recorded in 1998 and originally released in 2000 on Quadrivium, it was only available on CD and featured garish, unsuitable cover artwork. Within a year of beginning NWN! Productions, YK Insulter approached the band about re-issuing the album on vinyl with new artwork.
Debut EP of this razorsharp Thrash Metal from France. Absolute old-school spirit!! Imagery, sound, production, songs.. Everything here is as if it was recorded in 1988! A must for fans of BATHORY, DESTRUCTION or old-KREATOR!
"Returning to haunt the crypts ten years after the sadly rather lacklustre Buried in Time, Italy's venerable Mortuary Drape have delivered a fine return to form in the shape of Spiritual Independence. Dating back to 1987, with the potential exception of the aforementioned predecessor, Mortuary Drape have carved an impressive legacy based on a sound which, while identifiably black metal, draws more from the melodic sensibility of traditional heavy metal than any of the usual genre tropes. This in itself has always been one of the major appeals of the band: a sense of dynamism and understanding of the elements contributing to engaging and memorable songwriting. Throughout the album this element shines through again and again. The band demonstrates an admirable ability to make a riff last just exactly as long as it should, neither abruptly appearing then vanishing nor outstaying its welcome and becoming leaden or plodding.
Deathcrust Prepare to be crushed under the tank-treads of the most brutal Death Crust record ever: MUTILATED VETERANS "Necro Crust Warhead" (12" MLP). Exactly what its title says, Necro Crust Warhead is a hulking, heaving mass of utter D-beat destruction, galloping like the four horsemen of the apocalypse on the bones of the battlefield's dead. But far from being mere DISCHARGE plagiarists, MUTILATED VETERANS up-ratchet the D-beat idiom with a molten metallic might that handily trounces even the most "brutal" Death Metal band - not surprising here, as erstwhile MACHETAZO / DISHAMMER founder Dopi is one of the MUTILATED VETERANS. The mission of Necro Crust Warhead is absurdly simple: get in, get out, and KILL-CRUSH-DESTROY. This is the future of No Future... Recommended for diehards of later ANTI-CIMEX, DISGUST (UK), WOLFPACK, CRUDE SS, and WARCOLLAPSE.
