Death comes fast! From out of the sewer comes the debut CD from VACANT COFFIN. "Sewer Skullpture" is the debut mutant gross-out fest from Finland's VACANT COFFIN! 16 ultra-ripping songs of furious death/grind bathed in slime, guts, and globs of exploded entrails! Features Lasse from the cult early 90's death metal band PHLEGETHON and horror doom bastards HOODED MENACE! Prepare to be pulled into the sewer of the undead as blistering drum blasts and metallic-death-shredding riffs collide in a fury of glorious terror! This is total "Grindcrusher-era" death metal/grindcore in the style of the classic early albums from MORBID ANGEL, NAPALM DEATH, CARCASS, BOLT THROWER, ENTOMBED, TERRORIZER. Reissue includes 8-song "The Thrashed Supper" demo as bonus!
LOBOTOMY DEPT is a Finnish/Swedish industrial band formed in 2016 by Lasse of HOODED MENACE fame and Rogga from PAGANIZER, RIBSPREADER and many more. Besides all things deathly, thrashy and doomy, these guys share an interest in the late 80's/early 90's style of industrial metal (think of GODFLESH, MINISTRY, SCORN, and NAILBOMB). So after collaborating on a few death metal projects, it was only a matter of time before the two would come up with something that leaned more on the industrial side of metal. Actually one of the early bands by Rogga was the industrial metal band TERMINAL GRIP and Lasse was experimenting with industrial influences on the very late PHLEGETHON material back in the early 90's. You could say LOBOTOMY DEPT takes them back in time to continue the work they started many years ago.
CD version of the limited vinyl pressing released two years ago by Black Mass Records.
Live recordings at the legendary CBGB club in NYC. Outstanding sound quality! 15 songs plus MOTÖRHEAD and VENOM covers, features artwork by Chris Reifert (AUTOPSY, ABSCESS), liner notes by Daryl Kahan. This release puts a final point in music history as it was the last grind/death show at CBGB before it was closed.
Having successfully first collaborated on the ‘Desolacion Mental’ EP last year, the Spanish grind masters and DOOMENTIA have once again joined forces, this time to aptly resurrect from the dead MACHETAZO long sold-out second LP, ‘Trono De Huesos’! Originally released on RAZORBACK RECORDS in the spring of 2002 and already released on LP once through THRONE RECORDS (an edition that also was gone in the blink of an eye), this 10th anniversary of this underground classic edition is one to behold. As besides the original album in its original form, it also includes a giant poster of its iconic cover, extensive liner notes from Ramon “The Grindchild” Rodriguez from LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER and two bonus tracks, -including a ripping cover of CARNAGE’s “The Day Man Lost”-, taken from the hard to find split EP they shared in 2007 with RIBSPREADER. But at the end of the day, this is still to this day MACHETAZO purest grindcore album, a vicious and demented yet true nod to the early days of the genre when REPULSION and TERRORIZER ruled the world of extreme metal and it’s once again available for all you to learn, or re-learn for that matter, what the word ‘grindcore’ REALLY fucking means. Released by Doomentia
The solo project of JM Dopico, a veteran underground musician well known for his work with MACHETAZO, BODYBAG or DISHAMMER among many others, who plays all instruments and vocals on the album. "Antihuman" is debut full length and contains 10 songs in around 45 minutes, mixing influences from the glorious 80's heavy metal, doom rock and punk, an unique blend inspired by classic stuff like BLACK SABBATH, CELTIC FROST, MOTÖRHEAD, VOIVOD, SAINT VITUS, KILLING JOKE, MERCYFUL FATE, THE OBSESSED, VENOM, CARNIVORE, AMEBIX... Artwork by Nor Prego (MACHETAZO, BODYBAG, LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER, BRODYS MILITIA) and logo by Timo Ketola (DISSECTION, DEAD CONGREGATION, SUNN O))), WATAIN, OPETH).
Back in 2011, longtime friends Lasse Pyykkö from HOODED MENACE and Dopi from, then, MACHETAZO realized they shared a mutual love for what was labelled ‘stenchcore’ in the mid-80’s, that mix of heavy and dark metal with crust and apocalyptic themes. Both having already collected many side-projects proving their eclectic taste (death-metal, doom, D-beat etc.), they wasted no time coming up with a new entity, RUINEBELL. And four years after their debut EP (‘Demise in Disgrace’) and with now Pekka Koskelo (also from HOODED MENACE) behind the drum kit allowing Dopi to focus on his spiteful vocal delivery, they’re at it again. And what a scorcher ‘Ember’s Grave’ is…
AMEBIX and AXEGRINDER will once again be proud and more than ever, you can also see VOIVOD dystopian shadow in the back. But while the martial drums and somewhat cold wave vibe is still vivid here, clocking at a grand total 21 minutes, those four new songs showcase a thrashier and more headbanging side while at a same time leaning towards something more sinister. Just check the subtle menacing keyboards layers of “The Hermit” or its surprisingly melodic nudges if you don’t believe us… You’ll probably never see RUINEBELL on stage nor will they ever tour but far from being just a one-off thing, ‘Ember’s Grave’ just proves that they keep on growing and aren’t planning to stop anytime soon. Watch out, Armageddon is just around the corner!
Second full album. Doomy, grinding death / grind metal featuring Rogga Johansson on guitars, growls and bass (BONE GNAWER, THE GROTESQUERY, PAGANIZER) and Matte Fiebig (PAGANIZER) on drums. Cover and booklet art by Hungarian artist Peter Sallai (FOREST SILENCE, MEMORY GARDEN, BORNHOLM). 18 tracks in total!
Horror N' Gore connoisseurs BONE GNAWER returns to apex form with the band's much anticipated sophomore full-length record "Cannibal Crematorium"!
Once again led by Death Metal legend Kam Lee (ex-Massacre, ex-Mantas, etc) and with the prior emphasis focusing on composing (dead) catchy riffs that sear deep in, "Cannibal Crematorium" is not something that you listen and forget easily.
Simply put, there are no mindless brutality or distasteful technicality when it comes down to BONE GNAWER; this is purely good ol' fun Death Metal the way this genre was intended to be.
International act playing fast death metal rooted in the Swedish tradition. Rogga (DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN, ECHELON, GRISLY, HUMANITY DELETE, JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN, LOBOTOMY DEPT, MEGASCAVENGER, PAGANIZER, PUTREVORE, REVOLTING, RIBSPREADER, THE GROTESQUERY, THOSE WHO BRING THE TORTURE) strikes again with new band executing more souls to the ancient ones.Mixed by Ronnie Bjornstrom.

7th album by this swedish band leaded by Rogga Johansson from PAGANIZER/ PUTREVORE. 9 tracks of a heavy Death Metal that combines the rawness of bands like CARNAGE or GRAVE, with the catchiness or ENTOMBED and the great sense of melody of EDGE OF SANITY.
