MINENFELD – “Night Raid” MLP repress available

The first press has sold out quick and we immediatly ordered a repress: 250 copies on oxblood red 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. They are available for pre-ordering now and will be released on 1st July 2022!

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:

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:
