Cacophonous coalescence of amorphous chaos and morbidly dissonant riffage conforming a mesmerizingly hypnotic Black Metal mass that will appeal to those who have been staring unblinking at the abyss until its relentless vortex has finally consumed them.
IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a special 12" MLP from TEMPLE BELOW entitled The Dark Goddess. A pan-international entity spanning South America and Europe, TEMPLE BELOW brand their music "Black Magic Metal of Death" and appropriately summon sulfurous atmosphere and bestial madness, their sound brimming with gnarling violence and in-the-red hysteria. With four years between releases, TEMPLE BELOW are not ones to rush things, and that patience to their black-magick craft pays off with The Dark Goddess: three tracks of gibbering, pulsing possession occasionally stretched to epic ends and one haunting soundscape of evil entrantment, all as it should be and in demonic harmony, altogether creating a Lovecrafting landscape of nameless horrors and eldritch energy.
By now, TEMPLE NIGHTSIDE require little to no introduction. Begun in 2010 by mainman IV - whose experience in the fertile Australian black metal underground is vast in itself - to explore a more blackened version of ancient death metal, the band's initially self-described "Ritualistic Death Metal Necromancy" eventually morphed into more atmospheric and more deeply cavernous shapes, culminating in 2016's critically acclaimed The Hecatomb. But such acclaim matters not to TEMPLE NIGHTSIDE, and the now-quartet next explored their past with the foul 'n' fascinating Recondemnation in 2018, which was a reimagining of their 2013 Condemnation debut album.
Germany?s The Fog is an intense three-piece unit that plays some very good Doom/Death metal.
THE FOG down pick away to destruction on Perpetual Blackness. The vocals on here are quite intense. The occasional uppicks and transition riffs scale up the fretboard punk-style. I?d perhaps describe their style as venerable doom act COFFINS meets Finland?s underrated Lantern in a back alley brawl. If you?re a fan of doom/death, this is one record to check out.
Now on vinyl by Invictus Productions! It may be being released in 2018, but Realms of Hatred is a total full-on assault of turn-of-the-'90s DEATH METAL. No gore, no triggers, no Swedeath worship: rather, the sulfurous diabolism of early Morbid Angel, Sadistic Intent, Chile's Pentagram, and even a bit of Necrovore. Four tracks of Metal of Death madness (plus two requisite mood-setting interludes), all brimming with the hellfire and mystery that made the late '80s such a classic period in the underground - enter THULSA DOOM's Realms of Hatred!
Decimating the godhead to its insipid form, on March 29th, Triumvir Foul returns with its third legion of the triumvirate under the Vrasubatlat banner – the Urine of Abomination. This EP is being released in conspiracy with Invictus Productions on CD, 12" vinyl, and cassette tape formats, with 20 Buck Spin handling manufacturing & distribution in North America.
Triumvir Foul returns after their short lull from Spiritual Bloodshed with a four-song exhibition showcasing their more caustic elements to date. Again slightly departing in theme, the Urine of Abomination takes a direct approach in discussing the obliteration of the godhead and humiliating him in piss. Sonically, Urine of Abomnination carries on the sound of Triumvir Foul's more traditional death metal tendencies found on their demo An Oath of Blood and Fire and fuses it with more bestial black/death destruction. Urine of Abomination is the amalgamation of aural hell and fetishistic indignation – admonish the godhead and drown it in piss.
TYRANNIC from Australia play an infernal and evil Thrash/Doom reminding me a bit of bands like MORTUARY DRAPE. New EP after their acclaimed debuth full length now on vinyl through Into Endless Chaos Records from Germany. Black vinyl version.
The Chilean warmachine is back and they deliver another strike of Death Metal madness on this new seventh full lenght! Released as vinyl through Morbid Skull Records and limited to handnumbered 300 copies only!
Second full length of this German Black Metal institution. Only for purists of the genre. Totally recommended.
Vinyl version released in summer 2011 on Merciless Records, with an additional 7" EP as a bonus, which contains the song "Night of the Forlorn Graves" featuring the guest, clean vocals of Nathaniel of Résistance.
Without a doubt, the most relevant extreme band ever arising from Argentina. A band that made headlining tours in Europe back at the beginning of the '90s... "Diseased" is an awesome album full of unforgettable Death Metal hymns! A must have!!!
Official LP press by Disembodied Records from Argentina. Limited edition to only 500 handnumbered copies Includes a poster on 20 x 30 cardboard and insert with lyrics and rare pictures of the band.
In an era of "old school" underweight hipster revivalists drenched in reverbs and "atmosphere" (that doesn't sound old school at all), VoV comes back after 6 years of riots, line-up genocides and mental breakdowns striking with 2 new death hymns, already released on tape by Unholy Domain records (august 2016) now ready for proper vinyl and mcd (with 4 bonus tracks) format by Everlasting Spew Records. VoV is not revival, VoV is comprised of people who have grown up in the early 90's and you'll clearly hear it.
For fans of (early) DEMIGOD, TRAUMATIC, (early) DISGRACE, (early) MASSACRE and FUNEBRARUM.
The Uddevalla Metal Misantroops strike savagely penning 11 tracks full of blistering speed, sheer aggression and merciless brutality. All of this cloaked in the glorious, traditional aura that many strive to achieve, but few can actually reach. Despite being active since 1995, this is the first time IRON TYRANT has released something by a Swedish band. And let me tell you, it was well worth the wait. Just like VORNTH, who took all the time they needed to record their debut album since their inception in 2006.
