EXCARNASTRIAL COMMENCINATION

Band:BRAHMASTRIKA
Album:EXCARNASTRIAL COMMENCINATION
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:CD
Genre:DEATH METAL/NOISE

Brahmastrika was conceived through revelations on the ancient shamshan grounds of Kalikshetra, adi-karmic yantraniti was bestowed on our vessels of flesh to reveal the secrets of the sanatana yudhakarma, through nuclear metal of ultimate death, that has led to the Excarnastrial Commencination demo. Cosmic entrapments of Adi-kalpic proportions have been initiated. Paramanobik annihilation rituals are sharpened though bijamantras. Imminent end of cyclic adharma will be executed Without Any Warning! By now India is the source of some of the most unworldly combination of sunken magic, ancient knowledge, and bloodsoaked rituals imaginable. All this is transferred into indescribable, deadly Death/Black Metal: Oribiting around the likes of TETRAGRAMMACIDE and KAPALA the extremists named BRAHMASTRIKA (hailing from Kolkata) fire their bestial Warnoise of the most inhuman kind into the unsuspecting world.

 

 

AS WE FORGET OUR PAST

Band:HORRID
Album:AS WE FORGET OUR PAST
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Italy's longest-running death metal band, HORRID have built an enviously dependable, unyielding body of work since 1989. Starting with more primitive influences but soon moving on to those of early Entombed and Dismember, the band spent the 1990s solidifying their sound over a clutch of demos and EPs. Eventually, come 2002, their debut album manifested itself as Reborn in Sin. From there, the name HORRID has continued to stand for the timeless upholding of classic death metal values. Now, after two brandnew albums for DUNKELHEIT - 2014's Sacrilegious Fornication and 2017's Beyond the Dark Border, each one as critically acclaimed as the last - once again do HORRID align with DUNKELHEIT for a special anniversary record. Fittingly titled As We Forget Our Past, the 10-song/53 album features a slew of "greatest hits" re-recorded with HORRID's lineup that's been firm since 2015. As such, these ten tracks together form a sort of symbiosis with the preceding Beyond the Dark Border, given the massive crunch & crush of that career highpoint.

 

 

THE HORIZON TOWARDS WHICH SPLENDOUR WITHERS

Band:COSMIC PUTREFACTION
Album:THE HORIZON TOWARDS WHICH SPLENDOUR WITHERS
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:Death Metal

Having already proved his eclectic and multifaceted musical skills with projects like THE CLEARING PATH and SUMMIT, in 2019 the Italian composer G.G. brought to the world his most aggressive side, conveyed into the sonic grooves of COSMIC PUTREFACTION’s relentless debut album, “At The Threshold Of The Greatest Chasm”, a work mainly rooted in death metal and its most primitive, fast paced and old school facets. With the band's sophomore album, G.G. adds to that formula some of the progressive and esoteric aspects that characterized his other projects, but without sacrificing an ounce of the most nihilistic and vicious traits of COSMIC PUTREFACTION. “The Horizons Towards which Splendour Withers” is a metal epic which conducts the listeners through otherworldly decaying landscapes, agoraphobic wastelands and desolate cosmic sceneries thanks to monstrous dissonant riffs, convulsing rhythms, and spiteful growls and shrieks. The band explores the whole panorama of extreme music and metal idioms incorporating the most diverse influences: from death metal to grind and doom metal, passing through atmospheric and progressive black metal, also treating itself with a fascinating, apocalyptic symphonic interlude that adds an avant-garde touch to the album's closing number.

 

 

ETERNITY OF SHAOG

Band:ESOCTRILIHUM
Album:ETERNITY OF SHAOG
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:MYSTIC BLACK DEATH METAL

Exactly one year after the release of the acclaimed “The Telluric Ashes of the Ö Vrth Immemorial Gods”, France's ESOCTRILIHUM return with a new and majestic work, “Eternity Of Shaog”; an album where the band's unique black death metal style reaches new peaks of dark visionariness and overwhelming intensity. ESOCTRILIHUM's young sole member, Asthâghul has injected new lifeblood in his creature by exalting the symphonic and mystical aura of the compositions with infectious violins, piano and synths, skilfully blended with scorching guitars and hallucinatory melodies of cosmic proportions, often overflowing into raging melancholy.

 

 

PILLARS OF SALT

Band:BALMOG
Album:PILLARS OF SALT
Label:WAR ANTHEM RECORDS
Format:MCD
Genre:Black Metal

Balmog was formed around the years 2003 and 2004 by Balc, Virus and Morg in the small village of Soutomaior (Galiza, Northwest Atlantic coast of Spain ). From the very beginning, the three headed beast had a clear idea and objective in its mind: to create the most obscure and violent music searching in the depths of human thought and knowledge. After several demo tapes, 7” and splits released between 2006 and 2012, the band edits their first fulllength entitled TESTIMONY OF THE ABOMINABLE, finding a respected place in the global underground scene.Two more full-lengths, SVMMA FIDE and VACVVM, confirmed Balmog as one of the most devoted Black Metal acts in the European scence.

 

 

AGE OF THE IDIOT

Band:HENRY KANE (SWEDEN)
Album:AGE OF THE IDIOT
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:Death Metal

The raging grind/crust/death metal monster HENRY KANE is back with an album just as sonically ferocious as before but also mature. The debut album was hailed as one of the heaviest albums ever recorded and this time Jonny Pettersson of WOMBBATH, HEADS FOR THE HEAD, NATTRAVNEN fame, joined by a slew of new members, proves that there's more to this band's music than just an intimidating wall of sound banging against you repeatedly. 'Age of the Idiot' is one of the most anticipated albums in the style which fits snugly alongside similarminded labelmates in MEDIUM, GOREGANG, and BONES. The album is remarkably varied without compromising on the viciousness, even incorporating an atmosphere of ominous doom laden with shades of melancholy. It is an album that is a reflection of the current mindset that is responsible for the deplorable acts of people around the world fuelled by misuse of technology. This is the perfect soundtrack to celebrate our rapid descension into self-induced apocalypse

 

 

GELIDAE MORTIS IMAGO

Band:NOCTU (ITALY)
Album:GELIDAE MORTIS IMAGO
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:DOOM METAL/BLACK METAL/STONER/SLUDGE

Noctu plays haunting, atmospheric blackened doom metal that infects the soul, eviscerates it and leaves it hollow, bereft of the abundance of feelings that once invaded it. This is an unexpectedly sharp, incisive, singular and ultimately extremely effective form of expression, imbued with a deep, harrowing tone that has the power to incapacitate one's thoughts and rendering the person helpless to its introspective melancholy. Never before has the music of this kind shown such clarity and purpose without degenerating into incontinent lapses of urgency. This is stoic, consistent and stately doom with magical convincing power; the impact is profound and lasting. This perhaps epitomizes the funeral doom sound but has added atmosphere and bleakness to keep it relegated to just that. A measured, patient listen is sure to move the listener and those with physical copies of this release will even catch a whiff of the fragrance of flowers showered upon tombs from it.

 

 

IN UMBRA MORTIS SEDENT

Band:XPUS (ITALY)
Album:IN UMBRA MORTIS SEDENT
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:Death Metal

XPUS from Italy are invoking the ghosts of the dark and harrowing bands that surfaced in the '90s such as MORBID ANGEL, DEICIDE, INCANTATION and SINISTER, but obviously channeling it through their intensified, dense sound that makes it somewhat unique and frightening. There's palpable dark energy in this band's execution and none of it is blurred from chaos, rather it's brilliantly enunciated and fleshed out for maximum impact. With artwork from the acclaimed artist Misanthropic Art bringing to life their cryptic, graveyard-crawling death metal, the packaging furthermore receives a shot in the arm because of the unique and probably never before done before glow-in-the-dark effect. This is pummelling, dark death metal that doesn't nod off and makes sure its grip on you keeps tightening.

 

 

NECROTIC VERSES

Band:DEATH COURIER (GREECE)
Album:NECROTIC VERSES
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:Death Metal

Legendary death metal band Death Courier are one of the earliest bands from the Greek metal scene releasing a slew of demos from way back in 1987 and putting out an album and an EP in the early '90s. More than three decades later, the band is on the verge of releasing one of the strongest albums to come from the Greek death metal scene. It's hard to believe that this is the same band because the energy level is off the charts and everything has been amped up to match present day standards without of course changing the core sound and integrity. The music is still essentially the pulsating, rabid death/thrash metal kind and there remains that palpable hunger in the members to create memorable and gnarly music that they were known for. This is a lethal new album that throws down the gauntlet to the naysayers doubting the band's prowess after so many years, who will invariably be forced to eat their words. 'Necrotic Verses' will grab you by the throat and won't let go till the shockingly potent album is over. Death Courier have set new standards for themselves and others to look up to, all over again

 

 

POLICE TERROR

Band:RAWSIDE
Album:POLICE TERROR
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:LP
Genre:HARDCORE

Twenty-five years ago, POLICE TERROR was released. This album, which has shaped a generation of angry punks. The message behind POLICE TERROR is unfortunately still relevant. POLICE TERROR is probably the most important hardcore / punk album ever released by a german band! Rawside has everything a good punk album needed and still needs - snotty sound, a clear message and a lot of rage in the gut! DEMONS RUN AMOK is proud to release POLICE TERROR again after 25 years - newly mastered, a modernized cover with great similarity to the original Cover and instead of the usual lyric sheet there is an A3 poster with linernotes of old companions!
