ROTTEN CASKET – “First Nail In The Casket” out now!

ROTTEN CASKET – “First Nail In The Casket” MC + MLP out now! Available from our shop.

ROTTEN CASKET returns with a powerful release of pure death metal domination. 19 minutes of a classic sounding and without the slightest hint of pretension, “First Nail In The Casket” represents a masterclass in ancient death metal songcraft that is imperatively worth a praise.

Four tracks in length, these rotten-obsessed people distinguish themselves from other extreme bands with clever guitarwork and huge amounts of unique hooks that keep heavy things moving with a pleasing. Take “Bonetomb Residents“ and „Coffin Birth” for some highlights, the guitar solo and song structure sounds utterly poetic. Those two songwriting freshly unearthed from six feet underground with otherworldly charm and solid foundation. The other two tracks that also heavily incorporate more melodicism while still maintaining filthy buzzsaw aggression will trap you into a sonic maelstrom of punishing death metal riffs.

The rotten death metal quintet has undergone a slight change in line-up since their first release “Simply Rotten Death” back in the year 2015. But with recent addition of vocalist Martin van Drunen and drummer Stefan Hüskens whom also playing with legendary ASPHYX, two amazing shredders Yorck Segatz from thrash metal icon SODOM, Patrick van der Beek on bass and remaining original member Frank Bergesson, this certainly pave the way for ROTTEN CASKET to an all new level towards masterpiece.

Now, come our way, let your death metal be rotten and dark, and most of all, let them blow you away!

The EP is available in the following versions:

12“ vinyl, all versions have black poly-lined bags, 300gsm cover and 170gsm insert plus download code and are limited to:

MINENFELD – “Night Raid” and “The Great Adventure”

MINENFELD – “Night Raid“ EP on tape and 12“ vinyl available for pre-order! All pre-orders include shell casings and a 25mm/1inch button pin.

Spawning from the global death-surge, “Night Raid” by MINENFELD will definitely leave you a memento mori impression on one of the heaviest slabs of ancient death metal. Delivering death metal in its most skull crushing quality and mid-paced madness that once you have learned from BOLT THROWER, this German war master quartet sounds like a tank rumbling across the corpse landscape. Every time their deadly beats pounding, the guitar onslaught and the drums blazing — it encapsulates the atrocities of battle.

Recorded at the Eastern Bunker, their attack in a mere 14 minutes is free floating chaos like an everflowing stream under the command of Henner Rekorder as the sound engineer and mastered by Role at Tonmeisterei which assists the band in finally churning out its distinctive signature sound. And the cover art contributed by Jan Buragay profoundly channeled MINENFELD’s energy to explore their darkest fantasy in a combat zone of unending cruelty and savage barbarism. May the war on nationalism never end!

Fitting for their name, MINENFELD (German for minefield), if you are ready to listen to a record that was written on bloodied fields and driven by war without end that soaring woefully. This utterly compelling masterpiece is for you.

The EP will be available in the following versions:

150x black 12“ vinyl with etching on side B. Packed in black poly-lined bags, 300gsm cover with obi-strip and 150gsm art paper insert plus download code.

150x white 12“ vinyl with etching on side B. Packed in white poly-lined bags, 300gsm cover with obi-strip and 150gsm art paper insert plus download code.

Finally it’s possible to announce this European double death on wax. BASTARD GRAVE from Sweden and GRAVEYARD GHOUL from Germany are hereby giving proof that the underground is still vital and nothing is strong enough to smash the bond within this realm! This split presents one exclusive song from each band.

BASTARD GRAVE pursue the musical direction – a darker type of Death Metal – they came up with on their second full-length album. This means this song has the right balance between fast and bulldozing parts and the right amount of varied breaks on the right spot.

GRAVEYARD GHOUL contribute the first track with their new guitarist. Still playing their rancid style of Death Metal they are known for, „Dying Consciously“ has some fresh (if this is the correct word for this type of musick?) elements inherent, that adds a welcome variety to their sound.

SNĚŤ – “Mokvání V Okovech” MC out now!

SNĚŤ – “Mokvání V Okovech” MC

„Mokvání V Okovech“, the debut album from Prague-based tormentors SNĚŤ, makes great on the promise about everything you would expect of subterranean and monstrous Death Metal. Pure darkness and aggression is here, their first sonic exploration of the essence from the devastating and crushing nature of its predecessor, AUTOPSY to the very early of Swedeath, done with the utterly right feeling.

It would take another two years before SNĚŤ deliver their debut. It was very much worth the wait when it arrived. Eight tracks of pounding, deeper with its melodies, obscure Death Metal await the listener. This Czech entity will destroy everything with relentless savagery and mind-mangling cryptic music.

To resume then – SNĚŤ has a great obscure and dark feeling which is infectious. At some parts it’s mercilessly fast fueled with an explosion of madness and sometimes it’s slower encrusted with a thick layer of brilliant morbid riffs, they are forever twisting and never stagnating. Which is to say nothing but their debut has a gigantic and powerful production, that also underlines their devotion to death metal classicism is inevitable. And the cover art courtesy of Tomáš Mitura describes the record perfectly. It certainly does a legit mark, SNĚŤ is offering something else.

If you seek grandiose innovation, you are now roaming the right cemetery.

* 33 copies in a 300gsm folding box that will please your pathological urge (see pictures on the product page!), 170gsm inlay and orange shell tape. Hand numbered and including a download-code.
* 111 regular edition copies on yellow shell tapes, hand numbered and including a digital download-code.

DISMORFIA – “Repulsive Mutation” MC out now!

DISMORFIA – “Repulsive Mutation” MC

DISMORFIA is a serious sickness yet horribly filthy at the same time in the realms of the extreme metal world which surely will make a name for themselves. Their debut demo is indeed a collection of horrors. These Peruvian underground stalwarts play the realest death metal grindcore in the vein of classic piece of filth death metal grindcore. The sound of their music is perfect and oozing and disgusting. It sounds better than most other extreme violence releases out there – even by today’s standards.

Every song on this demo is utterly stunning. Unbridled cruelty channeled into 3 tracks of masterful death-grind with endless amounts of heavy riffs from its predecessor. It is DISMORFIA’s demo where they truly dive into the deep end, delving into the subterranean of the music, making each of their songs atmosphere heavy to the bones. DISMORFIA’s grasp of a definite mood of evil and dynamics combined with aggression over their demo they so masterfully display. And indeed, the twisted artwork makes a significant portion that DISMORFIA strives to explore all things sickening.

If you’re into filthy, original and gore obsessed, you cannot do anything but own this album and play it religiously.

* 100 regular edition copies on transparent shell tapes, with inlay plus poster. All copies are hand numbered and include a download-code.
