"Hold Back the Dawn" is the third chapter of a tetralogy based on H.P. Lovecraft's cosmology that started back in 2013 with "The Sea Grave" and will be closed with our next album.
Recorded & mixed at Moontower Studios in March, the album was recently mastered by Dan Lowndes at Resonance Sound Studio
The Cover art, as usual, has been provided by our sixth member Matt Carr.
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".
Gatefold LP. Black version limited to 300 copies. Includes a download code as well.
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.
INERT is a two-headed monster that exudes death metal from every pore of its body. Influenced by bands such as Dismember, Grave, Entombed, Morbid Angel, Death or Bloodbath, this two-man project blends old school death metal with more modern elements.
Remastered vinyl edition that includes a new bonus track. Double numbered on label and back. Comes with a lyric sheet, a woven patch and two stickers.
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.
Raw, occult Thrash/ Speed Metal from Nidaros, Norway! In just 1 year the band released 2 incredible demo-tapes that received great feedback in the underground before their debut album "War" was unleashed in June 2013. Their 2 demo-tapes were instant classics, but was hard to get almost at once since they were only printed in 100 copies each on cassette.
The return of INFANT DEATH! "Total Hell" is the ultimate fitting title for the 2nd album from this Raw, occult Thrash/ Speed Metal band from Trondheim, Norway! If you were amazed by the Speed and brutality of their debut-album "War" - prepare for complete onslaught on "Total Hell"!
"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...

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.
UNHOLY PROPHECIES, in conspiracy with Equinox Discos, is proud to present INSULTERS highly anticipated second album, "Metal Still Means Danger". Aptly fucking titled, "Metal Still Means Danger" is a literal statement of intent from these rude 'n' crude Catalonian bastards. Unrepentantly ugly since the beginning (and to the bitter end, we'd wager), INSULTERS formed in 2008 with the apparent aim to defile and then destroy all in their path. A couple demos and a split came before they accomplished exactly that with their debut album, the also-aptly-titled "We Are the Plague". Released in 2013 by Unholy Prophecies and Equinox Discos, "We Are the Plague" became something of a "sleeper hit" with those lucky few who heard it: INSULTERS offered a refreshingly ribald and gleefully gut-busting hybrid of blackthrash and old-school death metal, with a pinch of rock 'n' roll and even D-beat to be found.
"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!
One black and one red copy available. Let me know when ordering wich one you prefer.
"Pure barbarity, morbid and obscure death metal? it is slightly faster than majority of other Into Darkness songs, but I love it, for its harsh production and simply killer riffs? and awesome ghoulish voice of Doomed Warrior! It is perfect death metal carnage. Rough, chaotic, aggressive, totally merciless onslaught." (PANZERFAUST)
