SERPENT EATER - Hyena CD

SERPENT EATER - Hyena CD
SERPENT EATER - Hyena CD

The second full length! SERPENT EATER, based out of Cologne, Germany, has been plodding forward with its current lineup since early 2012. With members hailing from HAMMERHEAD (Ger), TUMULT (Ger), DASKRILL (Ger) and THROATS (UK), SERPENT EATER has been well rooted in the DIY Hardcore Punk scene for ages. Living on anger, SERPENT EATER is fueled, not dispirited, by life’s experiences and struggles. As such, the lyrical concepts employed in their work mainly focus on the weirdness and deformations of the psyche as well as the emotions of a violated mankind in modern society. SERPENT EATER creates its signature dark sound to emphasize this lyrical approach by mixing elements of death and black metal to (post) hardcore, crust, heavy and dark 70s rock, and doom to create sludgy, heavy and somber atmospheres of despair and hopelessness infused with moments of calm, sadness and melodic doldrums – only to be interrupted by sudden outbursts of sheer fury.

TAPHOS NOMOS - West of Everything Lies Death CD (digipak)

TAPHOS NOMOS - West of Everything Lies Death CD (digipak)
TAPHOS NOMOS - West of Everything Lies Death CD (digipak)

Deadly Death Metal that is smelling of rot & decay...  A word to the wise before you animals delve into this release. These songs are guaranteed to make water boil and crucifixes melt  when unleashed upon our world. A deadly mix of classic Death Metal, tinged with elements of Doom and Black Metal. Taphos  Nomos have constructed an impressive first showing and I really don’t think there is anyone reading this that would disagree  once they hit the play button.  “Pyroclastic Flow (Hellbent On Destruction)” serves as the first song here and hot damn, does it grab your attention immediately.  A timeless, Death Metal assault greets you before they reveal their true, sinister plans for your ears. From here on out after the  one minute mark, all bets are off. Taphos Nomos drop in with a face-melting section and never really stop till the last track  closes out.  Forget polished, festival playing pretenders to the throne of abusive Death Metal/Black Metal. Taphos Nomos have that shit  on lock down and pretty much nobody knows about this band (yet). Their offering entitled “West of Everything Lies Death” is a  text-book example on how to make your entrance felt in the underground metal scene without batting an eye.  This is one of those bands that will take you by full surprise. In all honesty, it will take you a few full runs through these songs  before you really understandd how layered and put together this band’s style is. TTaphos Nomos have created a sickening,  nasty combination of the most scathing elements in extreme music. The straight up, face-pummeling assault of Death Metal; the  unholy, church choir elements of Black Metal; and the whiplash inducing sludge that is Doom Metal - all mixed together in a  perfect, deadly concoction that we have become fully addicted to. One that is tempered with not just being “brutal,” but original. You will smell the grave if you usually enjoy: AUTOPSY, ASPHYX, old ANATHEMA, INCANTATION.

EXOSKELETT - Collected Bones CD

EXOSKELETT - Collected Bones CD
EXOSKELETT - Collected Bones CD

Exoskelett, Sweden’s breath of freshly rotten air, part ugly death, part ugly punk, part ugly gothic!

Crunchy, kinetic, and coated in grime, Stockholm’s Exoskelett blew shit up with the two EP’s that make up this full-length album. Merging crust, thrash, grind, and first-wave black metal, these guys’s music is noisy and evil in the most basic and satisfying of ways. Theirs is the sound of a local band you’re watching who rehearsed for weeks before the show and then got shitty on beer before walking onstage. No one else is doing sweaty and gross this damn well.

With production, style, and attitude to similar to early Venom, Posessed, and Death while also channeling Sweden’s Ghost! This is a not so nice, nice collection that really just kicks ass.

It’s not so much in your face blast and thrash beats stomping your guts into a pulp and pure blazing speed death metal. It’s just really good, period. It’s just slightly melodic enough that it keeps a solid balance of being very easy on the ears, yet still heavy enough for purists. Plus there’s this almost doomy vibe going on, all of which is what reminds us of Ghost and Tribulation. The vocals resemble Cronos and Chuck Schuldiner getting together at a Satanic ritual to discuss how it is to create and inspire entire genres of Metal for decades.

Even with the raw lower fi production (which we really like), you can hear every instrument, clearly. The track “Ossuary” is the fastest most in your face track, but a favorite might be galloping opener, “Unholy Alliance”.

These guys wear their influences on their sleeves, and yet actually sound pretty original in the process. Coming across Exoskelett was a pleasant surprise.

FEHLER - Dissona CD (digipak)

FEHLER - Dissona CD (digipak)
FEHLER - Dissona CD (digipak)

Fehler from the Netherlands captures a dark blend of noise/sludge/doom metal not unlike Cursed and Crowbar. With the release of ‘Adharma’ on the illustrious Black Death Records at the end of 2009, Fehler began to shape its form. The five blistering tracks of dark and raw energy were well-recieved by press like Aversiononline, LiveXS, Zware Metalen, Oor, Maelstrom, Aardschok and Lords Of Metal. In the meantime, Fehler’s growth as a live band resulted in shows with the likes of Amenra, Kruger, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Kickback, Taint, Suma, Minsk, A Storm Of Light, Black Breath, Misery Index, Kylesa and many more. Fehler became a much stronger unit with the addition of a second guitar player. April 2012 the world will see the release of ‘Dissona’, their debut full length album, released by Hammerheart Records. Expect everything from short and aggressive outbursts to sound-layered epics with a killer production. This is the first release to feature second guitar player Twan van Geel (Legion Of The Damned/Bunkur). Album artwork was done by Comaworx (under supervision of Tilmann of Necros Christos, previously active for Deathspell Omega, Urfaust, Portal, Necrophagia), and is simply highly artistic and fits this killer album like a glove! We dare say Fehler has made the a top record in their genre, slightly more polished, more mature, with more eye for details, but still true to their style... probably Alternative Metal fits best by now!

OCCULT - 1992-1993 CD (digipak)

OCCULT - 1992-1993 CD (digipak)
OCCULT - 1992-1993 CD (digipak)

A piece of dutch black/thrash history collected! This compilation by Dutch underground heroes Occult compiles their 1992 live performance at the Black Flame Festival and the first real studio recordings simply entitled “Studio Demo 1993”. Out of the ashes of most likely the first real Dutch Black Metal band Bestial Summoming came Occult, at least that was the impression back then when Sephiroth announced Occult’s appearance in the scene. Compared to Bestial Summoning Occult was way more structured, and sounding like a Thrash band (strong Slayer influences are not to be overheard) with a Darkened, Satanic imagery. The band immediately started to perform live and was a forced to be reckoned with on stage. Soon songs as “Leader in War” and “Almight Horde” became small classics, spiced up with cover songs of Acheron and Sathanas. In co-operation with Maurice Swinkels (a.k.a. Sephiroth) and New Era Productions these recordings are presented here on digipack-CD and LP. Very limited editions, for the collectors. Occult kept going during the 90’s, doing albums (five in total) before changing their name into Legion of the Damned. This band made it big, at least in Europe, becoming a house-hold name in quality, killer Thrash Metal! 

This underground gem is needed in your collection if you like: Legion of the Damned, old Slayer, Dark Angel, Acheron, Bestial Summoming.

KADAVERDISCIPLIN - Death Supremacy CD

KADAVERDISCIPLIN - Death Supremacy CD
KADAVERDISCIPLIN - Death Supremacy CD

Black metal from Västervik, Sweden aiming to go for the Black Metal elite with their debut album!
Kadaverdisciplin was formed in Sweden, 2014 when guitarists Antti Kurvinen and Pelle Fransson (Zombified) joined forces with vocalist Jimmie Nyhlén (Blodsrit), all three originating from Västervik.

Later on they recruited drummer Fredrik Widigs (Marduk, The Ugly) to complete the lineup. The songwriting process began with the aim to create modern black metal far superior to other contemporary bands in the genre. The focus lies on fast, straight-forward, aggressive, yet memorable songs with roots in traditional Scandinavian 90’s black metal, lyrically inspiried by death, darkness and destruction. The first single “Mother of Defeat” (mixed by Devo, Marduk) was released digitally in June 2015, followed by another digital song in 2016.

The debut full-length album “Death Supremacy” was written and recorded for a late 2017 release. Expect nothing but the blackest of the black!
When Hammerheart Records heard a part of the recordings they could not believe what they heard.

This is Swedish Black Metal, in the vein of Marduk and Watain, but on a level that most bands will never ever achieve, and if they do it takes them at least 3 albums to get anywhere near! Expect a total killer album, in songs, in structures, in performance, in attitude and in philosophy/ artwork.

It is indeed “Death Supremacy”, nothing to add here!

Kadaverdisciplin is:
Jimmie Nyhlén - Vocals (Blodsrit)
Antti Kurvinen - Guitars
Pelle Fransson - Guitars (Zombified)
Fredrik Widigs - Drums (Marduk/Nordjevel/The Ugly)


Your band if you worship the Swedish Elite such as MARDUK, WATAIN, NECROPHOBIC!

REBAELLIUN - Burn the Promised Land CD

REBAELLIUN - Burn the Promised Land CD
REBAELLIUN - Burn the Promised Land CD

First strike still deadly... Rebaelliun’s first album re-issued! The first effort by these crazy Brazilian guys, Rebaelliun, came out in 1999 and it was already truly promising. The technical level of this band and its sheer heaviness contributed in raising the curiosity of many in this genre. The burning sound and the unmatchable velocity were essential characteristics of this young band and “Burn The Promised Land” was already great in this sense. As always, forget about melodies and cheesy parts because here it’s all about the pure violence. The production is already very good. “At War” accomplishes the mission of opening this album in a perfect way. The gun shots immediately announce the blast beats and the ultra heavy riffs. They are schizophrenic and uncontrollable, passing through furious tremolos and bludgeoning palm muting parts. The heaviness of the drummer is like a panzer, pulling the entire band behind him. From now on, the songs maintain the same level of intensity and speed. The guitar solos are always great in technique, mixing lots of techniques to create the right impact through quite difficult parts. Their style let the most violent sections acquire more power with the same formula based on sheer speed and brutality. At the end you are just stunned by such brutality. Everything is so “in your face” here, so nasty and worth checking out...

Hammerheart Records re-issue the “Bringer Of War” EP (2000) from Rebaelliun. With a new title “Bringer of War (The Last Stand)”, a new front cover (it’s actually a recreation of the original one, designed by Wouter Wagemans and Sergej Lojko), new layout and new music (4 brand new tracks plus an intro)! Fabiano Penna is in charge of the production of the new release.

Rebaelliun presents four new tracks of unbelievable violence. The guitars are really a wall of impenetrable fire, while the drums are always on blast beats with few times on fast bass only and slow snare while the vocals can be described as typical growl ones with a harsh touch. The technical level is one of highest in brutal death metal we believe.

Sacrilege's second full-length deserves definitively more affection and attention. As far as I can see, "Within the Prophecy" is one of the few albums that possess really unique features. "Within the Prophecy" has a fatalistic touch from the beginning to the end. I guess that Satan himself lists this album in his torrid top ten. Therefore, it may be a good idea to look for the phone number of your local exorcist after having listened to this output. But first of all, listen very closely and enjoy the songs.

SACRILEGE - Turn Back Trilobite CD (digipak)

From the crusty realms to the mountains of doom!

A truly important entity that managed to carve their own individualistic sound from the get-go with this abrasive crust/punk/hardcore/thrash “madness” that was their debut. The sophomore continued consolidating their reputation as a less ordinary band the guys (and a girl) insisting on their hypnotic, monolithic mid-paced delivery without any unnecessary flourishes. Speed was out of the question, but one hardly needed it in this particular case as the band were the requisite antidote to the myriads of fast-paced riffmongers with which the scene had started filling in.

LEVIATHAN - Tentacles Of Whorror CD (digipak)

LEVIATHAN - Tentacles Of Whorror CD (digipak)
LEVIATHAN - Tentacles Of Whorror CD (digipak)
Second full length of this US black metal/ambient one-man band!
 
Wrest presents us with a gothic and ambient work of metal art. The vocals are eerily processed, with guitar dissonance every chance there is. Like many album covers of the genre, it is a simple black-and-white portrait (here depicting monster-on-monster mayhem). Also of the genre's repertoire is the fact of Leviathan being a one-man-band (Burzum, Judas Iscariot, etc.). That said, Wrest does a very good job in astounding us that this is actually true.

The drums are programmed (again, not uncommon), but give us blast beats that could give Hellhammer a run for his money. Black metal purists may criticize for it not sounding "raw enough" - though I think that it's disturbing ambience and unholy vocals could overpower that aspect. "Tentacles of Whorror" also has it's share of lengthy tracks (as per usual for black metal) and keeps them going with foreboding choirs of hell and background satanic mischief.

Scary, hypnotic, unsettling (perhaps a good choice if you want scare the pants off of trick-or-treaters).

Upon its release it was considered a very brutal and intense recording and it has become a collector item through the years.

INQUISITOR (NL) - Stigmata Me, I'm In Misery CD

INQUISITOR (NL) - Stigmata Me, I'm In Misery CD
INQUISITOR (NL) - Stigmata Me, I'm In Misery CD

Inquisitor returns!

Just... Fucking hell, one only needs to look at this beauty’s cover to know exactly what he’s getting into; a dark, intense journey, powered by all things Satan!

And indeed, this is some of the most rabid, diabolical death/thrash ever conceived. If the most savage incarnation of Kreator, early Deicide, Holy Terror and Sadus got stitched together into an unholy, shrieking beast, “Stigmata Me, I’m in Misery” is exactly what you’d get. Truly, the Inquisitor guys took many hints from the diaper days of death metal, back when the style was mostly just very violent, putrid thrash. While “Sigmata Me, I’m In Misery” does swallow in the darkness and brutality inherent to death metal, it’s generally
devoid of the more twisted songwriting that has come to be one of its main characteristics. Discounting a few exceptional moments, the band mostly sticks to two tempos; “very fast” and “even faster”.

The drums pummel and blast with an, at best, vague understanding of restraint, and the guitar work consists mainly of a combination of palm muted and tremolo riffs scientifically designed to dislodge the listener’s cranial unit from his thorax, but a special mention must be reserved for the vocals, in all of their throat-ravaging glory. Alex Wesdijk’s pipes sound wretched and corroded in all the best ways, like the missing link between Darren Travis and David DiSanto, complete with horrific, “the human throat doesn’t work like that” quasi-falsetto screams.

More standard growls can also be heard from time to time, but their use is very sparse and mostly present to emphasize a particular section, and the same goes for leads, which mostly manifest as brief explosions of frantic melody amongst a sea of thrashing madness. This is a record dominated by the rhythm guitar and the drums, with the vocals raging like wildfire on top of the whole thing. Picking highlights is almost an exercise in futility, as Inquisitor’s second album is a remarkably consistent assault on the senses.

MYSTIFIER - The World Is So Good... CD (digipak)
Although this obscure 1996 cut from Mystifier's back catalogue deserved this re-release on the basis of it being the first ever vinyl edition alone, it is also an important piece of Black Metal history in dire need of unearthing and wider dissemination. 3 years in the making after Göetia this was an ambitious album that drew away from Mystifier's primitive roots by mirroring and even furthering a lot of what was going on in European Black Metal at the time, and was lightyears ahead of any of their South American peers. For the most part the playing is still raw and riddled with imperfections, but compared with the stifling and primitive school of blasphemy where they had their genesis this is incredibly layered and atmospheric stuff with more in common with the Hellenic and Central European, and occasionally English, styles of Black Metal.

VOMITURITION - A Leftover CD
VOMITURITION - A Leftover CD

Remastered for massive sound impact!

Much sought-after album of the lost Finnish Death Metal act Vomiturition re-worked for deluxe CD, vinyl and tape, finally available again finally!

Vomiturition is one of the better acts in the history of the genre, and it is such a pity they never reached higher levels of fame.
Started out around 1990 in Vaasa Finland and peaking on this album, after which they split up, with members later appearing in famous bands such as Nightwish, Rotten Sound and Wintersun. Their music is Death Metal at its absolute peak, close to being flawless. They could line up with such cult classics as Bolt Thrower and Dismember and get damn close to these classic acts. Being a release dating so far back in time, we talk about 1995, also adds more points of credibility to it’s “retro” status and the “trueness” of their music.

Guitars are tuned down pretty low giving the music a bone crushing abysmal feeling; heavy and devestating like Bolt Thrower’s “Mercenary”. Riffs are equally heavy and gloomy. A great variety of melodies and riffs throughout the album leave no room for boring or repetetive songs. This is a classic release full of Death Metal with all the classic things you look for when you are in the search of that “Old School Death Metal feel”.

The overal tempo is variated; from slow doomy parts that make you feel like the shadows of the underworld closing in on you, to maniac full on grinding, and sometimes all of this in the same track. All of this is pasted together with extreme accuracy and without any odd ends. It is all very much thought through and precise in its balance between darkness and hardness.

The production over-all is great, clean yet not crystal clear, adding even more feeling. A nice black curtain lays over the recording giving it that old mid 90’s Death Metal sound.

This is 100% Old School Death Metal!

RESURRECTION - Embalmed Existence 2xCD

RESURRECTION - Embalmed Existence 2xCD

Classic Florida Death Metal album gets reissued!


The defining feature of Resurrection’s “Embalmed Existence” (originally released on Nuclear Blast in 1993) was “The Storyteller.” He was essentially an amateur voice actor who assumed an insane persona to tell an insane story. Voiceovers, which in sum formed the story, began every track but one. The result was a death metal record that felt like a twisted children’s tale. Love them or hate them the voiceovers were unique.

Now Hammerheart Records will finally reissue the record with its original 1993 contents. The CD features along with remastered sound the two demos (which are interesting, as songs often take different forms). The lavish liner notes feature historical photos and essays regarding the reissue, the demos, and the origin of The Storyteller.

Such distractions aside, the album is deservedly a minor classic. It might have become a major one had the band not split up after its release. Instead, it remains a sturdy memento of the Florida death metal sound - atonal, sometimes technical, without the bluesiness of its Swedish counterpart. Touches of musicality, like abstract chords and exotic solos, occasionally crop up. Alex Marquez of Malevolent Creation repute contributes lively drums. The melisma in Paul Degolyer’s growl recalls that of Obituary’s John Tardy.

We have no hesitation in naming it one of the better Florida death records of 1993, with more durability than even heavyweights like Morbid Angel and Atheist were able to muster that year. The debut also benefits from great production and even greater cover art. Granted, Scott Burns and Dan Seagrave were the usual standbys for this scene, but both did good by Resurrection.

If Resurrection had had more time, “Embalmed Existence” might be mentioned today in the same sentence as “Leprosy” or “Cause of Death”. Resurrection might have come along a few years too late to avoid the precedents that had been laid by their Floridian peers, but they did an admirable job of refining the bludgeoning force of Deicide, Pestilence, Obituary, and Death into something nonetheless worth your time.

For fans and collectors of: Classic US (Florida) Death Metal acts such as: earlier Death, Obituary, Deicide, Malevolent Creation, Atheist

“Above the Mind of Morbidity”:
“Above the Mind of Morbidity” is an absolute essential purchase for anyone heavily into bands like Carcass, Impetigo, Exhumed and thousands of Goregrind acts that followed.

“Fata Morgana”
Their lone style was a mix of many things.

The vocals on “Fata Morgana” are very Carcass-like obviously using pitch shifters to warp and bend the vocal tracks to the full extremities of the imagination.

The lows are inhumanly low, almost vomit inducing and gurgling.

They add to the sickness this band wants to portray in every second of their songs.

The mid and high range vocals don’t ever seem to be sung unless they are used as a highlight of sorts with the ultra low ones delivered in complete synchronicity together.

The guitars and bass on this almost seem to be tuned down to an ultra heavy B. Their sound often has aspects of that all too familiar and amazing “Swedish sound”.

Trust me that’s not a bad thing here it’s just how it sounds .


“First & Magickal” Xysma: the great unrecognized treasure of Finland’s underground past.

They were putting out filthy proto-deathgrind demos before Abhorrence had even formed, and were making pop death n’ roll a year later.

This second full length, “First & Magical”, sounds like Reek of Putrefaction-era Carcass performing Wolverine Blues except with way catchier, poppier, tendancies. The band themselves state in the album sleeve that they were influenced by the Beach Boys, and against all odds, it’s believable, and it works.


For Fans of: Carcass, Exhumed, Impetigo, Pungent Stench, Napalm Death, Entombed
