SULFURIC DISINTEGRATION

Band:OF FEATHER AND BONE
Album:SULFURIC DISINTEGRATION
Label:PROFOUND LORE RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

The new album from death metal outfit OF FEATHER AND BONE, Sulfuric Disintegration (out on CD/LP/Digital Nov 13), sees the Colorado power-trio deliver their most brutal, dynamic, and punishing album to date. Following up 2018 s Bestial Hymns Of Perversion , an album which signaled a new paradigm shift for the band and saw the band get the worthwhile recognition deserved through acclaim and notable touring cycles (the band being recognized for their devastating live performance), bringing a new sense of awareness to the band. Sulfuric Disintegration takes OF FEATHER AND BONE s intensity and aura to the next level. With not only delivering a more dynamic and complex musical vision that balances the genres of pure dark death metal, blistering grind, and unrelenting bestial metal, Sulfuric Disintegration sees OF FEATHER AND BONE become the full-on sonic killing machine that one was given a mere glimpse of with their past works. Not only is the sound on Sulfuric Disintegration more devastating than anything done previously, but the tighter and warmer production courtesy of a lethal mix and master executed by Arthur Rizk (tracking was done at Juggernaut Audio by Ben Romsdahl) gives the band their deadliest sounding album yet. TRACK LISTING: 1. Regurgitated Communion, 2. Entropic Self Immolation, 3. Noctemnania, 4. Consecrated And Consumed, 5. Sulfuric Sodomy (Disintegration Of Christ), 6. Baptized In Boiling Phlegm

LIFELONG DEATH FANTASY

Band:BLEEDING OUT
Album:LIFELONG DEATH FANTASY
Label:PROFOUND LORE RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:Death Metal

Featuring ex-members of Endless Blockade / Column Of Heaven / Abyss / Slaughter Strike etc., Bleeding Out have been making quite a name and impact within the Canadian extreme music scene in their short existence since releasing their 2018 demo, their split with Skullshitter last year, and by opening for like-minded bands they've associated with such as Full Of Hell, Tomb Mold, Mortiferum, and Primitive Man, to name a few notable friends of theirs.Lifelong Death Fantasy is a brutal, unrelenting, and utterly pulverizing, authority-bashing offering that captures the spirit of true old-school crossover deathgrind. A furious inexorable sonic pummeling, this album becomes the soundtrack to a civilization on the brink of rot and decay during an epoch of desperation, virulence, and uncertainty.

Album:LES MAMANS DU CONGO & RROBIN
Label:JARRING EFFECTS LABEL
Format:CD
Genre:CROSSOVER ELECTRO AFRICAN

Sing to emancipate the African woman. A unique encounter between the Bantu lullabies of the Congo, electronic music and hip-hop. A hybrid project which gives pride of place to dance and which highlights the daily life of Congolese women in a daring way and above all connected with the times. Gladys Samba, renowned singer and percussionist, had for years wanted to revive and popularize the lullabies of the Republic of Congo, considered as a true cultural heritage of his region. For his part in France, the artist Rrobin has been exploring electronic music and hip-hop since 2013. In 2018, he produced the Déluge album in collaboration with distinguished guests such as Grems, Spoek Mathambo, Nancy Fortune and Hedi Yusef. The Institut Français du Congo and the Coopérative de Mai, partners on the "Visa for Creation" project, then had the idea of getting Maman Glad 'and Rrobin to meet in order to create an unprecedented blend of traditional sounds and current sounds. It was in the fall of 2019 that Rrobin decided to go to Brazzaville. The project then comes to life through the recording of the first models. The common desire to make an album and especially a tour becomes evident when listening to the titles. TRACK LISTING 1. Nkala 2. Bordel De Rap 3. Sans Pagne 4. Boum 5. Ngaminke . Mbila 7. Meki 8.

SHALLOW OCEANS

Band:ICARUS PEELS ACID REIGN
Album:SHALLOW OCEANS
Label:BILLYWITCH
Format:LP
Genre:Rock

The first release on the newly formed Billywitch Records is unleashed this November and is by your favourite power-trio Icarus Peel s Acid Reign. A three-piece fronted by Icarus, the Acid Reign is much more than just a showpiece for Peel s solos. They perform songs that are memorable and psychedelically deep, with heavy guitar dynamics thrown in for good measure. The interplay between the band is essential and extraordinary, each song is given space to develop new horizons and is never played the same way twice. Shallow Oceans is their second album and like their debut it takes its influences from The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, The Groundhogs and Taste. Like the classic power-trios that inform them, Acid Reign soar from light to heavy, from minimalism to baroque and from dreamy reveries to gothic nightmares. If your taste is for extended guitar-driven acid rock you need look, nor listen, no further than Icarus Peel's Acid Reign. Their new album Shallow Oceans skilfully recreates a time when the world s most inventive guitarists where taking the instrument into uncharted territory but with great songs to tickle your earholes. TRACK LISTING Side 1. Half Space 08:22 / Shallow Oceans 07:34 / We Come In Peace 05:35 Side 2.

SOMNUS THRONE

Band:SOMNUS THRONE
Album:SOMNUS THRONE
Label:BURNING WORLD RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:DOOM/STONER

When Burning World Records takes notice of a new band, your ears should perk up. Somnus Throne would seem to be a project for an era of working remotely, with members spread throughout multiple cities, and though their origins are murky, that s nothing compared to their riffs. They come big and slow on the band s self-titled debut, topped with samples and a free-your-mind lumber that s thoroughly genre-based and it knows it. With members spread out across New Orleans, Los Angeles, Portland and San Antonio, Somnus Throne is a new heavy and psychedelic doom band that pays homage to legends such as Sleep, High On Fire and Pentagram. The band s self-titled debut album is now set for release on October 9 via Burning World Records and sees Somnus Throne playing some Sabbath-tinged, mammoth-size and hypnotic doom riffs across five epic tracks. Each riff is so spine-asphyxiating heavy as if they possess the power to create a seismic tremor in the walls of your houses. Somnus Throne proves that the music Black Sabbath birthed decades ago can still hit hard and sound engaging after all these years.

 

 

SOMNUS THRONE

Band:SOMNUS THRONE
Album:SOMNUS THRONE
Label:BURNING WORLD RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:DOOM/STONER

Fourth album by Vetus Supulcrum, another disguise of Maurice the Jong, better known as Gnaw Their Tongues, Seirom, Hagetisse etc. Artwork by Maurice de Jong. Album includes a booklet of 8 pages also designed by Maurice de Jong. What s so lovely about Dungeon Synth from the Netherlands, is how it covers quite a thematic region. You have your edgy, basement-dwelling, blackened thematics, you have forefather-honoring dreamscapes, there are playful releases about curious turtles and - of course - there s Vetus Supulcrum, delivering its unique combination of serenity and bombast. Vetus Supulcrum has been around since February 2019 and steadily released quality material in a short timeframe. Some of you might know its creator, M. de Jong, through his other works. Gnaw Their Tongues has had a kvlt-following for years now and - my personal favorite - Seirom has attracted a much broader audience with its soothing ambient/drone-like releases. It feels good to have such a seasoned musician enter the scene - and it suffices to say that Windswept Canyons Of Thule delivers the quality you might expect.

PHASE V

Band:35007
Album:PHASE V
Label:BURNING WORLD RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:SPACEROCK/STONER/ PSYCHEDELIC

2020 REPRESS OF OUT OF PRINT ALBUM. 35007 is the code name for a projectile with a unique sound. Ranging from firm grooves drenched in multiple layers of sound and hypnotic riffs to flowing soundscapes. A fine combination of past and future in influences and technique. This sound has been captured on the very well-received albums "Especially for You" - 1994 (remastered and rereleased in '99) and "35007" - 1997, released exactly 50 years after Chuck Yeager's first sonic boom. These albums contain instrumental as well as tracks with vocals. The 10" / CDM "Sea of Tranquillity" - 2001, marked the appearance of 35007 MARK IV as well as the shift to even more hypnotic instrumental terrain. It goes beyond the conventional rock formula and astonished critics and audience. It was followed in 2002 by the fully instrumental sound track "Liquid", which continued to expand the boundaries of their sonic universe. The album contains 4 voluminous tracks which take the listener on a surprising and sometimes unexpected journey. On the latest release, "Phase V", 35007 continue the fully instrumental journey, this time leading into more abstract terrain, led by the roman philosopher Boethius (480-526) who stated that "music is mathematics made audible". With the digit 5 hovering predominantly, the album is about numbers and sounds. No words, no images. The new album has already been nicknamed "songs for the blind", appropriately "visualized" by the minimal and sensuous artwork. Without the benefit of vision, the ears seem to work much better. Phase V is an intermediate state. No physical manifestation is to be expected in the foreseeable future, only time will tell what the next phase will be. Be prepared, as 35007 catapults your head into the next dimension. 35007 is a state of mind. TRACKLIST 1. 20 09 2. 23 32 3. 06 18 4. 44 05 5. 22 25 6. 61 74

DIFFERENT HORIZONS

Band:STORM WARNING
Album:DIFFERENT HORIZONS
Label:LIGHTNIN FINGERS
Format:CD
Genre:BLUES ROCK

This is the 5th album from UK band Storm Warning which leans more towards rock than any of their previous albums. All tracks are written by the band and influenced a little by 70 s rock. However, the songs sound fresh and there s no doubting Storm Warning has an individual style and sound. Although Different Horizons is not strictly a concept album, there is a theme about change that runs through the album with soundscapes that wouldn t be out of place on a Pink Floyd album. Guitarist Bob Moore, who unfortunately passed away not long after the album was completed, plays incredible eloquent and flowing guitar lines to die for. For over 15 years Storm Warning has been a notable band on the UK live music scene having played most UK blues/rock festivals. TRACK LISTING 1. Horizons 2. Feeling Something 3. Stranger 4. Come On In 5. Tell The Truth 6. Call It Midlife 7. Can't Sleep For Dreaming 8. Long Road 9. Questions

THE CONSTANT SOUND

Band:CONSTANT SOUND, THE
Album:THE CONSTANT SOUND
Label:LYSERGIC SOUND
Format:LP
Genre:POP PSYCH

For more than fifty years, vinyl collectors and music archivists from around the world have speculated about this ultra-obscure twelve-song demo-only disc from the 1960’s: When was it pressed? Who were the musicians and the singers? Who produced this gem? What was the purpose of the record, especially considering the high talent level and the fact that it seemingly had never had a commercial release? No less an expert than the late Patrick Lundborg, one of the world’s leading experts on psychedelic culture and music and author of “The Acid Archives”, the ultimate guide to underground sounds from the 1960’s and 1970’s, called The Constant Sound demo disc "one of the Holy Grails of 1960’s sunshine pop and lyte psych," comparable to the the California sunshine style on the very rare Birmingham Sunday record, and added: "this is bound to blow the mind of any genre fan, as it delivers on all the key areas and has no obvious weaknesses." High praise from the psychedelic guru!

While a mild dose of spectacularly transmitted diseases (sexual or otherwise) is engulfing the globe, there s no better time to put the kettle on, sit on your ass and grab a listen to some strange people making weird noises. We re not talking world leaders here, we re talking about the flatulent underbelly of the 60s pop debacle, a grandiose spectacular that still entertains and brings tears of joy (or disbelief) to many. Herewith we present to you, an era unfolding before your very ears with a succulent helping of funky soul beat and garage punk that wasn t punk at the time and wasn t recorded in a garage, but who cares when it sounds this good. 1.

DEALERS OF DIVINITY

Band:WHITE MAGICIAN
Album:DEALERS OF DIVINITY
Label:CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
Format:CD
Genre:HARD ROCK/PROTO HEAVY METAL

Classic, mystical metal with a high dosage of ’70s rock influences and unparalleled guitar work! On their first LP, Dealers of Divinity, Detroit, Michigan’s White Magician seamlessly blend the magic(k) of Blue Öyster Cult with the spellbinding glory of Mercyful Fate! The title for White Magician’s first full-length, Dealers of Divinity, depicts three blind card dealers who are employed by an entity who controls the universe’s behind-the-scenes gaming facility. The dealers laugh at the earth’s inhabitants’ belief that they are free. They watch them line up and play at this game called “life” and grasp at the illusion that they can actually win. But, ultimately, it is an artifice of the highest degree. Their fate has already been determined by the dealers well before the game starts. It begs the ultimate question: Do we accept this destiny or will we fight to make our own? This theme is the backdrop of White Magician’s mystical blend of classic metal and ’70s rock on Dealers of Divinity; a challenging array of stellar guitar work and oftentimes labyrinthine song arrangements that stretch well beyond traditional boundaries. Originally formed in 2010, White Magician — featuring guitarist/vocalist The Great Kaiser, guitarist Mars Mysterio, bassist Mofang Tengrand and drummer Master Commandriani — has gradually honed their sound across three releases preceding Dealers of Divinity: 2016’s The Pledge EP; 2017’s Antipathy single, and 2018’s split with The Great Kaiser’s White Magician (not to be confused with this White Magician) and Prelude to Ruin. Through trial and error and a laborious songwriting process that is oftentimes born out of a single riff, White Magician eventually arrived at a sound that relies on imaginative storytelling and some of the most advanced guitar interplays heard in classic metal in recent memory.

 

 

LORD OF DEMISE

Band:OLD MOTHER HELL
Album:LORD OF DEMISE
Label:CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
Format:CD
Genre:HEAVY METAL

On the follow-up to their lauded 2017 self-titled debut, Germany’s Old Mother Hell dig into their roots for a lively, memorable collection of pure, unadulterated metal on Lord of Demise. Before the release of their 2017 self-titled debut, it had been a long, oftentimes unrewarding road for the members of Old Mother Hell. Veterans of the Mannheim, Germany metal scene since the 1990s and early 2000s, Old Mother Hell had little in terms of expectations when Cruz Del Sur Music decided to rerelease the album that September. After all, they had spent years sweating it out in clubs and fine-tuning their musical skills in various rehearsal rooms with the hope that someday someone will take notice. Then, once the album was released, positive fan reaction and journalistic acclaim followed, with many hailing Old Mother Hell as one of the brightest new German metal bands in recent memory.

 

 

POMPEI

Band:DARK QUARTERER
Album:POMPEI
Label:CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
Format:CD
Genre:PROGRESSIVE EPIC METAL

Prog-tinged epic metal from one of Italy’s most venerable acts! A concept album detailing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, Dark Quarterer has crafted an album of high drama and impeccable musicianship with Pompei! Playing original material was considered taboo in the early 1980s Italian metal scene. Clubs wouldn’t book acts who wrote their own material, prompting countless Italian metal bands to hone their craft playing other people’s songs. The domino effect was obvious: Without any bands releasing original material, the European metal scene overlooked Italy for years, all the while Germany became the dominant force. One such band who swam against the tide was Omega R, who, after growing restless playing just covers, changed their name to Dark Quarterer in 1982 and started recording and releasing their own songs. It hasn’t always been easy for the band, who, thirty-eight years after the fact, are guided by founding members Gianni Nepi (bass/vocals) and Paolo “Nipa” Ninci (drums). During their halcyon years, venues for live music were scarce, forcing the band to retreat to their rehearsal room to work on their unique sound, one that has made Dark Quarterer one of Italy’s most respected cult metal acts.

 

 

DEALERS OF DIVINITY

Band:WHITE MAGICIAN
Album:DEALERS OF DIVINITY
Label:CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
Format:LP
Genre:HARD ROCK/PROTO HEAVY METAL

Classic, mystical metal with a high dosage of ’70s rock influences and unparalleled guitar work! On their first LP, Dealers of Divinity, Detroit, Michigan’s White Magician seamlessly blend the magic(k) of Blue Öyster Cult with the spellbinding glory of Mercyful Fate! The title for White Magician’s first full-length, Dealers of Divinity, depicts three blind card dealers who are employed by an entity who controls the universe’s behind-the-scenes gaming facility. The dealers laugh at the earth’s inhabitants’ belief that they are free. They watch them line up and play at this game called “life” and grasp at the illusion that they can actually win. But, ultimately, it is an artifice of the highest degree. Their fate has already been determined by the dealers well before the game starts. It begs the ultimate question: Do we accept this destiny or will we fight to make our own? This theme is the backdrop of White Magician’s mystical blend of classic metal and ’70s rock on Dealers of Divinity; a challenging array of stellar guitar work and oftentimes labyrinthine song arrangements that stretch well beyond traditional boundaries. Originally formed in 2010, White Magician — featuring guitarist/vocalist The Great Kaiser, guitarist Mars Mysterio, bassist Mofang Tengrand and drummer Master Commandriani — has gradually honed their sound across three releases preceding Dealers of Divinity: 2016’s The Pledge EP; 2017’s Antipathy single, and 2018’s split with The Great Kaiser’s White Magician (not to be confused with this White Magician) and Prelude to Ruin. Through trial and error and a laborious songwriting process that is oftentimes born out of a single riff, White Magician eventually arrived at a sound that relies on imaginative storytelling and some of the most advanced guitar interplays heard in classic metal in recent memory.

 

 

LORD OF DEMISE

Band:OLD MOTHER HELL
Album:LORD OF DEMISE
Label:CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
Format:LP
Genre:HEAVY METAL

On the follow-up to their lauded 2017 self-titled debut, Germany’s Old Mother Hell dig into their roots for a lively, memorable collection of pure, unadulterated metal on Lord of Demise. Before the release of their 2017 self-titled debut, it had been a long, oftentimes unrewarding road for the members of Old Mother Hell. Veterans of the Mannheim, Germany metal scene since the 1990s and early 2000s, Old Mother Hell had little in terms of expectations when Cruz Del Sur Music decided to rerelease the album that September. After all, they had spent years sweating it out in clubs and fine-tuning their musical skills in various rehearsal rooms with the hope that someday someone will take notice. Then, once the album was released, positive fan reaction and journalistic acclaim followed, with many hailing Old Mother Hell as one of the brightest new German metal bands in recent memory. It was, as the band put it, “like a life-long dream come true.” Now, with their self-titled album behind them, Old Mother Hell has moved onto the next stage of their career with their second studio foray, Lord of Demise. Recorded in early 2020 at Rama Tonstudio in Mannheim with Jens Seifert, with additional vocal tracking taking place at Sculpt Sound Studios in Cologne with Laurent Teubl, Lord of Demise perfectly captures the essence of Old Mother Hell, who consist of Bernd Wener (guitars/vocals), Ronald Senft (bass) and Michael Frölich (drums).

 

 

POMPEI

Band:DARK QUARTERER
Album:POMPEI
Label:CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
Format:LP
Genre:PROGRESSIVE EPIC METAL

Prog-tinged epic metal from one of Italy’s most venerable acts! A concept album detailing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, Dark Quarterer has crafted an album of high drama and impeccable musicianship with Pompei! Playing original material was considered taboo in the early 1980s Italian metal scene. Clubs wouldn’t book acts who wrote their own material, prompting countless Italian metal bands to hone their craft playing other people’s songs. The domino effect was obvious: Without any bands releasing original material, the European metal scene overlooked Italy for years, all the while Germany became the dominant force. One such band who swam against the tide was Omega R, who, after growing restless playing just covers, changed their name to Dark Quarterer in 1982 and started recording and releasing their own songs. It hasn’t always been easy for the band, who, thirty-eight years after the fact, are guided by founding members Gianni Nepi (bass/vocals) and Paolo “Nipa” Ninci (drums).

NORDARIKET (LIMITED)

Band:NORDEIN
Album:NORDARIKET (LIMITED)
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CDD
Genre:NORDIC FOLK/AMBIENT/FOLKLORE

Long before Black Metal flared up in Scandinavia, a specifically "Nordic sound" had developped in the music, which was picked up by artists from various backgrounds and interpreted in different ways. This on the one hand subtly uplifting, on the other hand deeply melancholic sound echoed in Nordic Black Metal and its obscure stylistic niches as early as the nineties. But while a project like Wongraven initially had to cope with sparse instruments, the turn to folk music on the part of numerous metal musicians all too often escalated into kitsch and embarrassing clichés in the years that followed. In contrast to that, multi-instrumentalist Jørn Øyhus (Byrdi, Varde, Nordjevel) took his time with NORDEIN to realize his personal idea of Nordic music, which easily rises above such lowlands - it was not without reason that the versatile musician originally described NORDEIN as "Norwegian Mountain Music". The Norwegian allowes his tone poems to grow in their own directions, while he can rely on musical companions such as Mathias Gyllengahm (Utmarken, Norrsinnt) who value artistic freedom as much as the founder of NORDEIN does himself. "The writing of Nordariket marked the beginning of a very personal musical and spiritual journey," Jørn reports. "We recorded the album with both contemporary and traditional instruments. It is a celebration of the natural world, blood and nostalgia - blurring the lines between past and future. It is also directly influenced by the fantastic inner realm of ancient spirits, gnomes and trolls." Experienced listeners will recognize that behind the sound of acoustic guitar, nyckelharpa and choral singing there is a spirit that feeds more on Nordic Black Metal than some pretentious bands which have little else to offer than soulless noise. As a matter of fact, the CD version of Nordariket includes "Norges Sorte Himmel" - a reinterpretation of the most epic song that Jørn once wrote for the norwegian Black Metal outlet Nordjevel.

Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:BLACK/DEATH METAL

OVERVIEW Long-running American symphonic black metal masters return from the dead to re-record their classic 2008 album, "Salem 1692." Considered by many to be Ceremonial Castings' best album, "Salem 1692" now receives a reinvigorating recording which both amplifies their inherent aggression and their foggy mysticism: simply spellbinding, and another new classic of '90s-style sympho-BM! Ceremonial Castings began in the late fall of 1996. The band was founded by still existing members Jake Superchi (Uada) & brother Nick Superchi. The basis of the writing & the lyrical foundation striving on the art of black magic, witchcraft & rituals that could only lead to the name of Ceremonial Castings. Hailing from the town Battle Ground which is located in the dark forests of Washington state (USA) it is no surprise that the curses that are spewed forth are a perfect mix of unrelenting majestic chaos. The recipe contains itself with the magicks of Black, Death, & Thrash Metal to Classical, Symphonic & Dark Ambient combining into the band's self deemed sound as "American Deathphonic Black Metal" or now known as "Bewitching Black Metal", a unique style surrounded in black magic & the arts of witchcraft. The brothers Superchi also happen to be related to the renowned author, Nathaniel Hawthorne, as they are direct descendants of Nathaniel's great-great-grandfather, Judge John Hathorne, who is known for his leading role in the Salem witch trials.

AIR

Band:DIVA
Album:AIR
Label:DIVISION RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:DARK POP/TRIP-HOP

The close collaboration with producer Josué Salomon has allowed the band to push the boundaries they’d settled on their first album. The main frame is still strongly rooted in a mystical & deep trip-hop inherited from the Bristol scene in the 90’s, but the two musicians have now accepted that they also had a really strong taste for the powerful & mesmerizing R’n’B. The one from the 90’s as well. The one with gigantic beats work by Timbaland in particular. And of course, the infinite love they both share for more folk/pop tunes is still there. The result is nothing less that stunning and completely addictive. Impressive vocal parts supported by smart beats (soaked in modern trap music, also) and incredible guitar work that give birth to unique earworms… These songs will grab you by the neck and never let you go!

Album:MAZIS MI SE/CUDDLY, CUDDLY - DELUXE EDITION

Plazmatick is not just music but a complex mix of theory, activism, urban tribes, zeros and ones, video projection, love and freedom. Maziš mi se / Cuddly, Cuddly is an imaginary soundtrack, an audio catharsis boldly thrown on the urban jungle asphalt, with its main engine of aural and life experiences, gathered during the last two years. This is a melting pot of various influences and cinematic audio highways. Deluxe double vinyl edition of Maziš mi se / Cuddly, Cuddly includes Plazmatick's previous album Hrđava vremena / Rusty Times.

 

 

PYRAWEED

Band:PYRAWEED
Album:PYRAWEED "420"

Format:CD
Genre:HYPNOTIC STONER/DOOM

Imagine Hatebreed that began to smoke fiercely, slowed down to 30 beats per minute, with a dude on vocals that sings in a "doom" manner, but not without a "Hardcore" feel. In other words, here we have a very groovy sludge, with Pyraweed’s "chopping" riffs played entirely on bass. It is likely that there is significantly more than one bass track here, and it’s evident that Nizhat and Zakir reached a new level of robustness, while demonstrating masterful teamwork as a rhythm section.

2020 release. Four piece Dead Sleep from Malmö, Sweden, release a follow up to their highly acclaimed debut album on Denomination Records.

Simple and bombastic at the same time, the songs always carry a strong riff at the center and aggressive, in-your-face vocals.

The album was recorded at The End studios together with long-time producer Ulf Blomberg and mastered by one of the band's personal heroes: Joel Grind from Toxic Holocaust.

Label:I VOIDHANGER
Format:CDD
Genre:OCCULT BLACK METAL

After two years of dreamless sleep, ARS MAGNA UMBRAE reemerges with a cathartic offering to the blood-drinking Witchmother of Astral Crossroads. Once again, calling upon the subterranean currents that flow through the arteries of heaven and earth, to banish the old, invoke the new and transform. The band's new album, “Apotheosis” takes the listeners on a journey across the shores of plutonian nights, through starless aeons and oneiric fields, to later plunge them into the depths of boundless devotion and joyous madness. A fusion of dream and reality, embodying a descent into the blighted pits of the divine, serving as an integral initiation into the ancient art and craft of Chthonic worship. “Apotheosis” is ARS MAGNA UMBRAE's most intense, concise and demanding effort so far.

EL DIABLO ROJO

Band:EL ROJO
Album:EL DIABLO ROJO
Label:KARMA CONSPIRACY RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:STONER ROCK/HEAVY ROCK

The album concept is the identikit of a man that lives in the south, along with contradictions and distress. The focus moves from the picture of a background: belonging to the south, passions, hopes and the certainty of being part of a generations that has been robbed of their own rights, the right to have a job, the right to access a decent life like the ones the generation before theirs have had benefit. The south is losing its sons, and it's getting slowly deserted. The light is fading towards the shadow and so it happens in the narration of the concept. The music follows the point of view of the observer, the classic dusty stoner becomes doomy, following the mood and the emotions that emerge from the tunes, track after track.

RELENTLESS NIGHT

Band:CHAINBREAKER
Album:RELENTLESS NIGHT
Label:METAL ON METAL RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/THRASH/SPEED METAL

CHAINBREÄKER are back from the crypt with their second full-length straight from the witches' cauldron... Nine merciless tracks, drenched in old school speed and thrash metal with a touch of heavy and black/thrash will haunt you relentlessly through the night and will rip you to shreds! These maniacs from Austria are not trying to re-invent the wheel - they just make sure it keeps on turning, powering it with their youthful energy and enthusiasm. Raspy lead vocals with wild screams supported by effective backing vocals, razor-sharp guitars and killer drumming are the main ingredients here. This high-speed trip is marked by violence, bloodlust and human abyss of moral depravity. It's very likely to give you an impulse not only bang your head, but also to break into air drumming. While the most obvious point of reference is EXODUS with Paul Baloff, these songs will surely please all fans of early RAZOR, EXCITER, SLAYER, VULTURE (Ger.), RANGER, STÄLKER, SODOM, early KREATOR, DESTRUCTION, ANTICHRIST (Swe.) and EVIL INVADERS.

Band:HELLSPIKE
Album:LORDS OF WAR
Label:METAL ON METAL RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/THRASH/SPEED METAL

Hailing from the rusty Portuguese railroads, Hellspike delivers this raw molten metal piece ( masterpiece?) as if it was forged back in 1985 in some incandescent furnace. Some dark, vicious and terrorizing riffs combined with tasteful '80s (feel?) melodic solos that pay tribute to the speed metal legends like Iron Angel, Warlock, Warrant (Ger.) or Grave Digger in their good old days as well continuing the black/thrash legacy of the old masters/ Teutonic Gods of iron/ outfits such as Sodom, Necronomicon, Violent Force, Assassin or Kreator. Turning back the hands of the clock to a time when Metal was Metal, HELLSPIKE herald the advent of doomsday to the sound of electric guitars. As the Lords of War lay claim and lay waste to a diseased planet, as the looming future discloses the impending throes of woe of a dying race, HELLSPIKE proclaim that real Metal will not go down without fighting, strengthened by the breakdown of a faltering civilization. From the industrialized, decrepit landscapes invoked in their music, an uncertain and nameless outcome is beheld – and decibels open the way for the collapse at hand.

Album:SATOR OMNIA NOCTERN

Genre:METAL/DOOM METAL

If the first words that come to your mind when you think about doom metal are "slow and boring", you NEED to listen to LEGIONEM - it's a safe bet you will change your mind. These Italians don't hide that they're inspired by the forefathers of the genre from Birmingham, but they don't leave any doubt which country they come from as their music is steeped in the Italian dark sound tradition from the '70s and '80s. Prepare to be engulfed by the lava of full-bodied metallic riffs and evil sounding vocals shifting between gruff and clean. The use of the organ helps create a mysterious, esoteric atmosphere. Their second fulllength offering will keep your attention high throughout its entirety - it's an inspired and varied album with truly massive sound. The initiated ones, apart from the obvious BLACK SABBATH influence, will surely recognize similarities to bands like L'IMPERO DELLE OMBRE, PAUL CHAIN, THE BLACK, EPITAPH, ABYSMAL GRIEF, early DEATH SS, WITCHFIELD, WALL OF SLEEP, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, BLACK OATH and GOBLIN.

Sex, drugs and a kick in the guts, VOMIT DIVISION is the perfect soundtrack to fucked-up nights and fucked-up lives!

 

 

BLOOD WORLD

Band:MORTIFICATION
Album:BLOOD WORLD
Label:SOUNDMASS
Format:CD
Genre:THRASH METAL

Soundmass are happy to announce their CD re-issue of Mortification’s 1994 album Blood World. The band’s 4th studio album sees them with a new drummer, a new producer and a new sound – unabashedly thrash metal, but with groove and classic metal influences. It was at this point that Mort followers realised that the band would constantly evolve and experiment, never repeating themselves. According to Australian Music Online: “The strange combination of extreme styles began setting Mortification apart from the crowd of same sounding bands and widened the band’s audience as they became quickly recognised as innovators and not imitators.” In fact, despite the popularity of their early classics like Scrolls Of The Megilloth and Post Momentary Affliction, it was actually Blood World that went on to be the best-selling album from Mortification’s entire catalogue. It is a solid slab of thrash full of great songs, some of which became Mort classics.

Band:MORTIFICATION
Album:LIVE PLANETARIUM
Label:SOUNDMASS
Format:CD
Genre:THRASH/DEATH METAL

Soundmass are happy to announce their CD re-issue of Mortification’s definitive live album Live Planetarium. Recorded in October 1993 at Australia’s iconic Black Stump Festival, Live Planetarium was the fourth Mortification release on Intense Records and their first live album. And what an incredible live show it was, almost flawlessly performed in front of a wild crowd! The set list is a selection of classic songs from their first 3 albums, capturing the diversity of the band’s vision. This is truly Mortification at their greatest, their innovative blend of extreme metal styles setting them apart from the crowd. Their intensity, energy and variation are perfectly captured on this recording – Steve’s thick bass and powerful voice, Michael’s sharp guitar chops and Jayson’s precise drumming – with the incredible production making every instrument clearly heard.

 

 

MORTIFICATION

Band:MORTIFICATION
Album:MORTIFICATION
Label:SOUNDMASS
Format:CD
Genre:THRASH/DEATH METAL

Soundmass are happy to announce their CD re-issue of Mortification’s 1991 self-titled album. With releases on label giants like Nuclear Blast and Metal Blade, albums which are considered classics, world tours and a sound that is constantly being reinvented – having delved into death metal, grind, thrash, power metal, groove metal, classic metal and even a touch of punk – Mortification is a band that cannot be put in a box. They are the undisputed pioneers of Christian death/thrash metal and Australia’s most successful metal band. Heavily influenced by the thriving thrash scene of the early 90’s, this album is recommended for fans of Vengeance Rising, Kreator and Destruction.

 

 

POST MOMENTARY AFFLICTION

Band:MORTIFICATION
Album:POST MOMENTARY AFFLICTION
Label:SOUNDMASS
Format:CD
Genre:THRASH/SPEED METAL

Soundmass are happy to announce their CD re-issue of Mortification’s 1993 album Post Momentary Affliction. After the pounding death/grind of 1992’s Scrolls Of The Megilloth, this album sees Mortification returning to their thrash roots, but with a refinement and creativity which would see this recording considered a classic. With the influences of Manowar and Iron Maiden on display, we’re treated to a feast of incredible thrash and speed metal that is laced with death metal. Complex songwriting, precise riffing, masterful bass playing, phenomenal drumming, intelligent lyrics performed in a fresh death growl/thrash shout style, all captured with clear and clean production. Recognised by many critics as an innovative album, and arguably seeing this trio crafting songs at their artistic peak, Post Momentary Affliction is distinctly Mortification and showcases everything fans love about this band.

 

 

PRIMITIVE RHYTHM MACHINE

Band:MORTIFICATION
Album:PRIMITIVE RHYTHM MACHINE
Label:SOUNDMASS
Format:CD
Genre:THRASH METAL

Soundmass are happy to announce their CD re-issue of Mortification’s 1995 album Primitive Rhythm Machine. Mortification’s 5th studio album is an anomaly of sorts, with no permanent band members except for founder Steve Rowe. Instead he records with his Blood World touring band, plus guitarist George Ochoa (Deliverance/Recon/Worldview), who also produced the album. This was also their last album released on Intense Records. Primitive Rhythm Machine continues where Blood World left off – successfully fusing thrash metal with groove and classic metal influences. However, in line with Mortification’s ever evolving experiment in sound, the production is rawer than its predecessor and, true to the album title, there is a spotlight on the drumming, giving it a Sepultura vibe. The musicianship is innovative and outstanding, providing us with a great album of classic Mortification songs.

 

 

SCROLLS OF THE MEGILLOTH

Album:SCROLLS OF THE MEGILLOTH

With releases on label giants like Nuclear Blast and Metal Blade, albums which are considered classics, world tours and a sound that is constantly being reinvented – having delved into death metal, grind, thrash, power metal, groove metal, classic metal and even a touch of punk – Mortification is a band that cannot be put in a box. They are the undisputed pioneers of Christian death/thrash metal and Australia’s most successful metal band. Soundmass has gone back to the early years – re-issuing Mortification’s 1992 album Scrolls Of The Megilloth. Hailed by many as the band’s finest hour, this album sees them perfecting a brutal death/grind style that has stood the test of time, even 28 years after its initial release. In talking of the classics of death metal, Scrolls Of The Megilloth is one of those albums that always seems to get mentioned. Heavy, downtuned, fast, chaotic, technical – an extreme metal onslaught with street level credibility.

IN PURGE THERE IS NO REMISSION

Band:ORDINANCE
Album:IN PURGE THERE IS NO REMISSION
Label:THE SINISTER FLAME
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Formed sometime during the beginning of this cursed new millennium, Ordinance have been a study of patience and pride. Not for them to rush out releases; each creation comes when it is ready. No more, no less…no mystique intended. Neither for them is the term “Finnish black metal” appropriate, despite their country of origin; rather, BLACK METAL is the only torch worth bearing in the Ordinance world. The title itself bears especial portent, as musically, Ordinance literally leave no stone unturned in their quest for the ultimate expression of black metal. The sound is immediately and irrevocably BLACK METAL, to be sure, but the duo bend so many unorthodox means to their diabolical design – and, it must be said, effortlessly and unselfconsciously so – that the end result is paradoxically orthodox, or at least a stridently purer iteration of black metal than one would expect given the band’s wild ‘n’ wayward attack. Thus, one could say that In Purge There is No Remission is black metal by language, but Ordinance‘s dialect is an undeniably unique one.

Genre:HORROR DOOM METAL

Dave Slave started with Australia's Sadistik Exekution who took Extreme Metal to a whole new dimension and were as loathed as they were loved. 2004 saw the last official release from Sad Ex and marked the opportunity for bassist Dave to pursue some solo work on a full-time basis. After an utterly awesome Bionic Bass EP showcasing his brilliant and varied bass skills, and his first doom/horror release, Doomed And Disgusting, Dave presents this his second release, entitled Satan's Nightmare. Quirky, unsettling, crawling funeral/horror doom- It is relatively obvious that this is essentially a one-man band. The vocals are nuts, there are loads of queer effects, samples and unsettling sounds throughout the 11 tracks which nail the sound of horror perfectly. Tracks creep and crawl at an eerily measured pace, maintaining interest and their unsettling mood with cleverly timed riffs and samples. The ultimate in occult ritual horror soundtrack music. Batgo. 2005.
