Morthra was one of the most promising death metal bands from Holland. They won the final of the famous Dutch 'Metal Battle' in 1993. Morthra was formed in 1990 and featured Rene Arts (ex Asphyx). They recorded their debut demo at the cult Dutch Studio Harrow Productions with Harry Wijerink (ASPHYX, SOULBURN, PENTACLE, GRAND SUPREME BLOOD COURT).
Their second demo was recorded in a large studio in Amsterdam, paid by the Dutch Metal Battle organisation (the first prize was a full day in a professional studio).
Morthra recorded a 2 track promo in 1994, which was never released. Morthra played many gigs in the Netherlands with for example Gorefest, Pentacle and Death Squad.
After the recordings of their promo 1994 / 3rd demo, Morthra got an offer from Osmose Records from France to release their debut full lenght album.
And guess, what.. instead of signing a deal and record their debut album, Morthra splitted up and that album never saw the light of day….
Now finally after more than 20 years, finally here is the Morthra album: ‘Desecrated Souls (from Insane Minds)’, featuring their 2 demos, the 2 track promo and 6 live tracks. All 17 tracks are completely remastered. The booklet contains rare old pics and flyers and liner notes from the band and notes from close friend Wannes Gubbels, (Pentacle, ex Asphyx, ex Soulburn). Cover art by Roberto Toderico (Sinners Burn, Soulburn, Asphyx, Sinister etc.).
In 2007 Sinners Burn started with the original Paganizer line up (from the ‘Deadbanger’ era), reuniting as a drunken project to celebrate 10 years with Paganizer. This project led to the release of Sinners Burn debut album ‘Pre-mortal Autopsy’ in 2008.
Just after this release Patrick Myrén (Blodsrit, Zombified) joined the band and new songs where written for the upcoming album called ’Mortuary Rendezvous’. Richard Karlsson (all guitars) joined just before the release of the record in early 2009.
New songs where written and Markus Ankarberg (vocals) and Fredrik Nilsson (bass) joined the band. This was the first time that the band lineup was complete and that Sinners Burn where ready for touring. Soon after that the band the album recorded their 3rd full lengt album ‘Insanity Warmachine’ (2010). Now with the same line up as on the 3rd album, SINNERS BURN will release their fourth full lenght album ‘Disturbing Creatures’.Groovy mid tempo old school death metal from Sweden at its best.
God Dethroned released their debut on the German label Shark in 1992 entitled ‘The Christ Hunt’. The critics in the underground were marvelous, sales however not that good due to the poor promotion / distribution. Its been re-isused in a very limited edition on Slaters own label in 2000 (Cold Blood Industries), which sold out rather quickly. And now finally worldwide re-issued on vic records.
The band split up after The Christ Hunt and Satler formed other bands…However he returned to mighty God Dethroned in 1996.With a new lineup they scored a deal with Metal Blade, which issued The Grand Grimoire in late 1997. After that album God Dethroned released seven full length albums on Metal Blade and is recently reactivated after a two year hiatus.
Dutch death-metal band God Dethroned was formed in 1991 by vocalist /lead guitarist Henri Sattler with several friends and released their debut demo in 1991, recorded and mixed at Franky's Recording Kitchen (Asphyx, Severe Torture). God Dethroned released their debut on the German label Shark in 1992 entitled ‘The Christ Hunt’. The critics in the underground were marvelous, sales however not that good due to the poor promotion / distribution.

Exoto was formed in 1989 and released its first demo in 1991 (and it was immediately voted as 'Demo of the month in the Aardschok/Metal Hammer magazine in Holland). The second demo was released in 1992 and 2 songs ended up on an 7’’ e.p. The band grew and played with bands like Morbid Angel, Loudblast, Annihilator, Malevolent Creation, Benediction, Massacra, The Gathering, Grave, Gorefest, Loudblast and many others. By the end of 1993, the band recorded its debut CD “Carnival of Souls. Exoto got weekly airplay on the national radio Studio Brussel. Exoto played at one of the first editions of Graspop (GMM). A new record deal with Swedish Black Mark records was signed in 1994. The second full length “A Thousand Dreams Ago” was world wide released n 1995. Then, despite of good perspectives (European tour supporting Slayer, recording a pro video clip, …) one of the members decides to quit. Because of the problems in the past finding good musicians, the rest of the band follows. Exit Exoto …
2012 … on Facebook appeared an Exoto fanpage … Exoto got together again and after several rehearsals the members decide to do some (limited) reunion gigs. This restart resulted in the brand new 3rd Exoto album ‘Beyond The Depths of Hate’. It’s a 17 track album containing new recorded tracks from the demos, the first 2 studio albums and brand new songs. The album comes as a limited edition digipack.
Eternal Solstice is one of the very first Dutch Death metal bands. Eternal Solstice was formed in 1989 and is still active today. The band released 3 full length albums on Dutch label Displeased Records in the 90's and recently an 2 split EP's on US Dark Descent records. "The Wish of The Father To the Tought" is the band's debut album originally released in 1994. The album was recorded at Excess Studios with Hans Pieters (Severe Torture, After Forever) in The Netherlands. Eternal Solstice is old school death metal to the bone and in its pure essence. Inspired by the first extreme metal gods such as Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Sodom, early Massacre, early Death and such. The re-issue contains many rare pictures, and extensive liner notes from guitar player Philip.
Polluted Inheritance was formed in 1989 and was one of the early Dutch death metal bands. The band 3 full length albums in the 90?s. Polluted Inheritance preformed technical death metal. On one hand inspired by Massacre and early Death and on the other hand by the more technical acts such as Atheist, Cynic, Pestilence. "Betrayed" is the perfect blend of these styles.
"Betrayed" was their highly acclaimed second album, released in 1996 on Dutch label DSFA Records (Orphanage, Within Temptation amongst others). The album has long been out of print (for almost 20 years). This re-issue comes with extensive liner notes, rare pics and exclusively new designed booklet.
Dutch extreme metal act PHLEBOTOMIZED from the Rotterdam area was formed in 1989 as Bacterial Disease as a death / grindcore band and changed their name to PHLEBOTOMIZED in 1990. They released 2 demos tapes, an e.p., a mini CD and 2 full length albums during 1991 – 1997. PHLEBOTOMIZED was known for their dominant use of keyboards (not like The Gathering nor like Nocturnus, maybe somewhere in between) and their rather experimental and complex songs (still strongly embedded in death metal). During their last full length PHELEBOTOMIZED evolved into ‘Avant-garde Death/Doom Metal’.
This release ‘Devoted to God, Preach Eternal Gospels’ contains their second demo’ Devoted to God’ (1991) and their mini album ‘Preach Eternal Gospels’. Both were recorded at Het Pand (Lair of Golgotha, Threnody) and remastered by PHLEBOTOMIZED guitar player Tom Palms. As a bonus the album contains 3 live tracks. Covert artwork by Kristian Wahlin (Emperor, Dissection, Edge of Sanity).
Both Eternal Solstice and Mourning were one of the very first Dutch Death metal bands. Eternal Solstice was formed in 1989 and is still active today. Released 3 full length albums on Dutch label Displeased Records in the 90’s and recently an EP on US Dark Descent recs. Mourning excisted from 1989 till 1997 and released a full length album in 1993 on legendary Dutch label Foundation 2000 (Gorefest, The Gathering). Both bands perform death metal in its purest form. Raw and effective.
In 1990 both Eternal Solstice and Mourning recorded songs for a split album to be released on UK’s Peacevile Records. Mourning did not sent over the master in time and the release vanished. Two years later Midian Records from Belgium finally released the split album.
The response was overwhelming and Cyber Music from Holland did a limited pressing aswell in 1992. The split album has long been out of print (over 20 years) and is a much sought-after collector’s item (bids on Ebay of over hundreds of Euros).
The Viper Slithers in the Ashes of What Remains is the first full-length of Italy's FUOCO FATUO, and it follows on the path of the band's two 2012 EP's. It is crushing doom once again, only now the trio from Varese have heightened their senses and have delivered a much darker and more intense work. Over the course of five songs and more than fifty two minutes of darkness, Fuoco Fatuo never relent and craft bleak, monolithic and ominous landscapes, the likes of which extreme music hardly ever witnesses anymore. Enjoy slowly and fully.
For fans of INCANTATION, ENCOFFINATION, ATARAXIE, NECROS CHRISTOS.
Straight from the Catacombs of ROMA, DOOMRAISER hits you hard with 5 tracks of total, traditional doom metal, clocking in at 58 minutes!
The band was formed out of different musical experiences in 2003, and released an excellent demo in 2004. More than 700 copies were spread, and the constant demand forced the band to have it entirely ready for download on their home page.
The response at it was so good that the band was invited to take part on the 2006 DOOM SHALL RISE IV, as well as playing both editions of the Roman STONED HAND OF DOOM (2005/6).
In December the band decided to record their debut album, then began shopping it around, looking for a label. In the meantime, a very limited edition vinyl single featuring a different version of "The Old Man to the Child" was released through Ghost Records.
Contact was established and it was deemed that IRON TYRANT unleash said doombeast unto the world. "LORDS OF MERCY" will be out on October 15th, in time for the band's first European Tour. Among other dates, the band will appear at DUTCH DOOM DAY V along with bands such as Reverend Bizarre, The Gates Of Slumber and The Prophecy.
HEAVY DRUNKEN DOOM!
Five years in the making...the wait is over! Five years to sharpen the edges of their own style, making them stand out as one of the most visionary acts around. Five years to develop a greater confidence with twisted, psychotic yet very effective songwriting, always leaving room for free-hand improvisation. Five years spent in the absolute underground, sharing the stage with many well know bands. Five years... Midryasi are sure the wait was well worth it! The fall of 2009 sees the release of "Corridors", Midryasi's second CD release and first proper full length recording. After the change of guitar player, the band underwent severe rehearsing in order to create the alchemy which has always been necessary for any power trio to succeed, then an intense live activity soon followed, in Italy and abroad. Six tracks were carefully crafted for this Album, songs indebted to old gods such as Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Celtic Frost, Hawkwind and Goblin, yet with a strong and omnipresent own identity and originality.

The second full length of this Guttural Slam Jammin Sickness from South Germany!!!
Ultra brutal slamming death metal from USA!!!
Blasting Perversirt since 2007, Paroxysmal Butchering has worked hard to create music that is unrelentingly ferocious, yet memorable and continues to assert itself as the premier purveyor or ear drum punishing, crotch obliterating brutality. "Human Smasher", Being the band's second full-length album is sure to bring the blasting, groovy, dissonant, guttural, auditory snuff that they deliver so brilliantly.
Banisher is a technical death/grind band founded in 2005. The music on “Scarcity” is a slight change of pace compared to what they’ve done on their previous album “Slaughterhouse”.
The tracks are faster, simpler and more intense, which makes the album an extreme and relentless 30 minutes of death metal in the vein of Cryptopsy, Decapitated, Dillinger Escape Plan or Meshuggah, while maintaining their own personality and originality through groovy rock’n’roll riffing. The drums warrant particular attention, as they were recorded by Łukasz “Lucass” Krzesiewicz (Gnida, Sammath Naur).
The album also features a guest appearance by Wojtek Famielec (Disperse) on one of the instrumental tracks. The instruments and vocals were mixed and mastered at Invent Sound Studio in Bydgoszcz.
Lyrical themes include several topics: the criticism of contemporary society, its values, the fragility of human mind, various conspiracy theories and unsolved criminal mysteries.
Includes members of F.A.M., NUCLEAR VOMIT, DIRA MORTIS.

This is their hard to find second full length!
Second full length of Canadian duo named NADJA. Hard to find!
Nadja creates music that has been variously described as drone metal, ambient doom, and shoegazer, incorporating influences from such diverse artists as Swans, Godflesh, My Bloody Valentine, & Codeine. Nadja combines soundscapes, electronics, & atmospheric vocals with snail-crawl, epic riffs & dirge-like percussion, tempering the cacophany with a certain ethereal melodicism such that the listener is enveloped in a sublimating wall of amorphous sound.
"Nadja’s unabashed love of atonal classical music beams (albeit dully) throughout, stressing lack-of-form over function, making something normally scary into something wholly frightening." - DECIBEL
"When Toronto electro-metal duo Nadja are at the height of their powers, the entire world feels as if it could collapse beneath the pressure of a manipulated guitar, a drum machine, a bass, and two bent voices." - Grayson Currin, PITCHFORK MEDIA
For Fans of: My Bloody Valentine, Jesu, Godflesh, Sunn O))), Earth, Om, Pelican, Swans
