THE PAST IS ALIVE! New Music and Videos from: MEFISTO, BLOOD INCANTATION, ANNIHILATOR, TRAJETO DE CABRA, NILE, DIE KUNST DER FINSTERNIS & ANGEL WITCH


MEFISTO´s upcoming album "Octagram" is one of the LPs of this year that I look forward to. The band released a few weeks ago the first single "Armageddon", now it´s time for the "Roots Ov Thy Soul".
Excellent track, starting  with a calm dark intro of clean guitars, to become a furious death-thrash storm.
Luckily, there is not much left for november to get my hands on "Octagram"





BLOOD INCANTATION release "Inner Paths (To Outher Space)" video and single. Taken from the bands second full-lenght "Hidden History Of The Human Race". This psychedelic track featurs guest "vocals" by Antti Boman from Demilich (in fact you can hear his performance on the sole grow at the end of the track).
The album will by released by Dark Descent Records in November 22nd. Pre-order available here and here (Europe).



New album by canadian thrashers ANNIHILATOR. Their 17th full-lenght "Ballistic, Sadistic" is due to be released on January 24th 2020. 
The band premiered the official lyric video for the track "I Am Warfare"...


TRAJETO DE CABRA from canada will release the debut album via Iron Bonehead Productions next December 13th.  "Supreme Command Of Satanic Will" is the title of the album containing 7 tracks of sataninc Black-death metal, proud of the (in)famous Ross Bay Cult,  featuring members of Necroholocaust. Listen to the first advance track "Cursed Graves Of The Unanointed". Worship...






"Vile Necrotic Rites" is the title of the upcoming NILE album, and also the lyric video for the track with same name, premiered by the band a few days ago. The album will be out on November 1st via Nuclear Blast.

HAVOHEJ To release "Table Of Uncreation" LP reveal new track

HAVOHEJ return with the third full-lenght album "Table of uncreation". The album will be released through Hell´s Headbangers records in November 15th on vinyl, CD and cassette.

Besides Profanatica´s new album, Paul Ledney releases another piece of blasphemic art. The following extraxt from the promo info describes a part of the escence of the new album..."Exploring the seemingly wide divide between space and suffocation here does Ledney draw the two together into a mesmerizing, monged-out subversion of black metal into simply BLACK. Traces of the entire Havohej aesthetics are well represented here on the Table Of Uncreation, and then spliced `n´ diced into juddering panoramas of primitive sonic filth".

But if words are not enough for you, hear the new track "Seven Jinn".
Preorder available here.




Tracklisting:
God of All Constellation
Holy Blood, Holy Grail
The Black King
Seven Jinn
Impossible Force

NUCLEAR DEATH "Bride Of Insect" Music Video


What a morbid pleasure to find this! The official music video of NUCLEAR DEATH´s "Bride Of Insect" made by Coffin Nail Productions.

The title track of the debut album by the gods of grind-death is an authentic jewel (the whole album is pure cult) of the late 80s/eary 90s. A band with it´s own style and sound, exponents of a morbid and violent chaos. The past is alive. Hail NUCLEAR DEATH!.

WORSHIP VINYL: KATATONIA Jhva Elohim Meth


Peaceville Records will reissue one of the best Demos released in the early 90s. "Jhva Elohim Meth" released by KATATONIA in 1992 was iconic among the black metal milieu, but beyond being "just" black metal, the three tracks (+ intro and outro) expressed a dark-cold and atmospheric blend of death, doom and black metal, despite the "evil" image used by the band back then.

This reissue is presented on a limited 12" blue vinyl with original cover artwork and lyrics.

Release date: 15th November 2019. Pre-order available here.

SARTEGOS to release debut album "O Sangue Da Noite"

November 29th is the release date for "O Sange Da Noite", the debut full lenght of SARTEGOS.

This Galician one man project, helmed by Rou, began in 2008 and released a couple of demos in 2010 ("A Serpe Do Escarnio") and 2011 ("Mortualha"). Then the great EP "As Fontes Do Negrume" in 2013 and a couple of split EPs recently.

Now with the first track revealed, "Sangue e Noite" (meaning Blood and Night), SARTEGO´s music shows an impressive mix of obscure-heavy riffs and a macabre-dense atmosphere, leading you to vast dark realms.
