Drugi album Infesticide we wrześniu

Today, Blood Harvest Records sets September 25th as the international release date for Infesticide's highly anticipated second album, Envenoming Wounds, on CD and cassette tape formats. The vinyl LP version shall follow on October 16th.
Bursting from the void in 2012 as Inherited, the band-to-become Infesticide released a couple demos under the moniker before making the official change halfway through 2013. And indeed, this moniker change signaled something of a sound change, or at least shift, as the power-trio stepped away from thrash and plunged headlong into pure and total DEATH METAL, particularly from their native Mexico. A demo and EP were released under the Infesticide banner in 2014, to be followed by the band's debut album, Death's Formulas Fatal, in 2016. That debut full-length found favor among diehards for its utterly harsh 'n' vile sound.

Mexican death metal bears a proud lineage, and Infesticide blaze a path of the old into a fiery future with Envenoming Wounds!
Begin blazing with the brand-new tracks "Envenoming Wounds" and "Magma Blood" HERE at Blood Harvest's Bandcamp. Preorder info can be found HERE. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:

Transcendence zapowiadają debiut na wrzesień

Today, Blood Harvest Records sets September 25th as the international release date for the highly anticipated debut album of Los Angeles' TranscendenceTowards Obscurities Beyond, on CD and cassette tape formats. The vinyl LP version shall follow on October 16th.
Formed in 2013, Transcendence have been a study in patience and perseverance. The band digitally released their first EP, Morbid Reality, in 2014 and was followed by the Altar of Disease demo later that year. Back then, Transcendence maintained a more deathrashing sound, but after some lineup shuffling, they re-emerged in 2017 with the EP Hour of the Summoning, which Blood Harvest released on cassette in early 2018. Here, the intensity was upratcheted further, thanks in part to a brand-new rhythm section and Michael Alvarez taking over the second guitar spot. With this edition, Blood Harvest signed Transcendence for the release of their imminent debut album.

Behold the first gleam with the brand-new track "Infernal Resurrection" HERE at Blood Harvest's Bandcamp. Preorder info can be found HERE. Aforementioned cover and tracklisting are as follows:

Debiut Stygian Temple we wrześniu

On September 11th internationally, The Sinister Flame is proud to present Stygian Temple's striking debut album, In the Sign of the Five Angles, on vinyl LP format.
A literal bolt from the blue (or deepest black?), emerging with no warning and even less fanfare, Stygian Temple released their debut album, In the Sign of the Five Angles, on CD format in 2016. With no prior public recordings, this release flew far too under the radar of even the most diehard underground-dwellers, which is criminal to say the very least: here, Stygian Temple evinced a mastery of black metal that defied their otherwise-new standing. Indeed, one could even say that In the Sign of the Five Angles was some lost Sombre Records release from the late '90s, so authentic was its ancient pallor - but then again, the late/great Sombre would NEVER release a CD in the first place...

Select tracks from In the Sign of the Five Angles can be heard HERE at Stygian Temple's Soundcloud. Official and exclusive USA distribution by Dark Descent Records. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
Tracklisting for Stygian Temple's In the Sign of the Five Angles
1. Intro
2. Soli Deo Gloria
3. Cathartic Nimbus
4. The Great Cosmic Void
5. Verbum Dei
6. In the Sign of the Five Angles
7. Dominion of the Trident

niedziela, 5 lipca 2020

Pandrador "Ov Rituals, Ov Ancestors, Ov Destiny" już dostępny.

”True Polish Death Metal” – to najprostsze sformułowanie, jakim można określić album ”Ov Rituals, Ov Ancestors, Ov Destiny”. Polska szkoła Death Metalu spod znaku grup Dies Irae, Decapitated, Vader, Trauma czy Yattering krzyżuje tu drogi ze środkami kompozycyjnymi spotykanymi w skandynawskiej muzyce etnicznej. Wszystko to zamyka liryczny koncept, którego podstawy leżą w celebracji śmierci i nadprzyrodzonych sił znanych z mitologii nordyckiej. W tekstach przeszłość przenika się z teraźniejszością, prezentując spojrzenie na „nordyzm” z perspektywy człowieka nowoczesnego. Nieistotna jest tu muzyczna przystępność, chwytliwość czy popularność gatunku – to dźwięki „Ku chwale Martwych Bogów”.


Ov Rituals:

1. The Oath
2. Tiwaz
3. Uppsalablot
Ov Ancestors:
4. Valgrind
5. Anno Domini 793 (Lindisfarne)
6. Miklagardr
Ov Destiny:
7. Baldr
8. Pandradr
9. Tordenskrall

Before the weekend we are coming up with more information about Josefoff, where, apart from music, you will have an opportunity to discover the hidden gems of Josefov and to look under the hood of the Brutal Assault festival, which was inevitably postponed to 2021.

First of all, with great regret, we have to announce that Vader will not join this event, due to a sudden change in their calendar that could not be postponed. Instead, we are bringing their dark compatriots HATE and beer thrashers TANKARD! In addition to Belphegor, the lineup further expands with the Prague's lunatics Hentai Corporation and the legendary Root.

The tickets are already available in the shop for a price of € 52. Keep in mind that the quantity is limited, so don't delay your purchase! https://brutalassault.cz/en/tickets/detail/id/295

Recenzja Ars Magna Umbrae "Apotheosis"

Ars Magna Umbrae
I, Voidhanger Rec. 2020

Jak to się mówi – lepiej późno niż później. Debiutancka płyta Ars Magna Umbrae ominęła mnie szerokim łukiem, mimo iż słyszałem o niej kilka pozytywnych słów. Wszystko wskazuje na to, że będę musiał jednak nadrobić zaległości, gdyż ten pochodzący z naszej ziemi, tej ziemi, jednoosobowy projekt wybija się dość mocno ponad przeciętność. (Czytaj dalej...)

"No. Pity."
K.V.N.T. Kolektiv 2020

Gość przysyłając do mnie promo z prośbą o szczerą i surową recenzję albo przeoczył fakt, że wspomnianego Revenanta zjebałem na czym świat stoi albo jest samobójcą. (Czytaj dalej...)

Recenzja TRISTWOOD „Blackcrowned Majesty”

Blackcrowned Majesty”
Independent 2020

Nie spodziewałem się, że austriacki Tristwood swoją piątą, dużą płytą spuści mi taki wpierdol. Tymczasem po wysłuchaniu „Blackcrowned Majesty” musiało minąć trochę czasu, zanim pozbierałem swoje obolałe zwłoki z podłoża. Najnowszy album Austriaków to bowiem brutalny, bezkompromisowy, siarczysty Black/Death Metalowy rozpierdol, który w połączeniu z intensywną, równie bezpośrednią, jadowitą elektroniką i zimnymi, ziarnistymi, niepokojącymi, industrialnymi teksturami spuszcza słuchaczowi totalny łomot nie biorąc jeńców. (Czytaj dalej...)

Recenzja IMAGO MORTIS „Ossa Mortuorum e Monumentis Resurrectura”

Ossa Mortuorum e Monumentis Resurrectura”
Drakkar Productions 2020

Powstały w 1994 roku włoski Imago Mortis to zespół bardzo szanowany na scenie Black Metal w Italii. Sukcesywnie budowali oni swoją pozycję, dbając o to, aby każdy aspekt twórczości grupy podkreślał dumę z ich pochodzenia i historii do tego stopnia, że teksty każdej płyty pisane były w języku autochtonów i zgłębiały historyczne korzenie Lombardii, ich starożytne legendy, mity, wierzenia i zapomniane kulty. (Czytaj dalej...)

Recenzja VESICARUM „Reign of Terror”

Reign of Terror”
One Eyed Toad Records 2020

Vesicarum z Wielkiej Brytanii to stosunkowo młoda krew na scenie Death Metal. Powstali w 2016 roku i po wykrystalizowaniu składu, co zajęło im prawie cztery lata, pod koniec maja tego roku zadebiutowali swym pierwszym, oficjalnym materiałem. „Reign of Terror”, to 20 minut ciężkiego, Śmierć Metalowego grania utrzymanego w marszowych tempach. (Czytaj dalej...)
