INCONCESSUS LUX LUCIS To Release "The Crowning Quietus" LP



A harsh and dark recording is lurking in the shadows, and it will unleash his wrath on October 31st through I Voidhanger Records (Digipack CD) and Invictus Productions (vinyl version).

"The Crowning Quietus" is the second full lenght of the Manchester-based band INCONCESSUS LUX LUCIS.  Rough, catchty, dirty black metal, or black n´ roll to some.  Check out the two tracks already unveiled.. "At The Behest Of The Sinister Impulse" and the tittle track.  Grrrrreat!









WORSHIP VINYL: UNHOLY "From The Shadows" & "Second Ring Of Power" Reissue




Obscure, complex, atmospheric, and (to some people) even psychedelic  doom! All this can be applied to the music of the great Finnish band UNHOLY.

The band released the debut album "From The Shadows" in 1993 and the sophomore "The Second Ring of Power" in 1994.  Both records are great from an unusual band that went beyond of just writing and playing death/black/funeral doom, and both albums are now presented on vinyl for the first time!

"From The Shadows" - released in 1993 is known for possessing a dark textured Death/Doom Metal style mixed with unusual, often avant-garde, arrangementes. UNHOLY´s willingness to experiment with sounds and moods helped create a strong and uniquely twisted atmosphere as slow pounding Doom Metla epics are aided by the pressence of creeping synths."

"The Second Ring Of Power - originally released in 1994, continued the boundary-breaking approach to experimental Doom Metal which the band had established with From The Shadows, mixing Metal with strong atmospherics and unusual structures."

This are the kind of reissues really worth to rescue good old rare and worth recordings! Both on double gatefold vinyl. Check them out here.










PESTILENCE "Hadeon" New Album in 2018 (Update)



PESTILENCE revealed cover artwork for "Hadeon", created by Santiago Francisco Jaramillo from Triple Seis Design. "The concept is based on a multi-layered reality, alien presence and negative frequencies".



PESTILENCE will return with a new album next year.  “Hadeon" will be released on March 1st 2018.

The band posted on their facebook page the following words of the new bassplayer Tilen Hudrap about the new album: "Mameli really went back to the vibe/energy of the early 90's with a 21st century twist on the upcoming Pestilence album "Hadeon"! Killer stuff, 12 pieces of complete brutality and fusion...I can't wait for y'all to hear it! Artwork, tech info and first tour dates soon! It will be a long wait (release date: March 1st) so in the meantime blast this classic instead! The Pest is back!"

Let´s hope we can hear a new track soon, stay tuned

INFERNÄL MÄJESTY "No God" Official Music Video



INFERNÄL MÄJESTY released "No God" earlier this year, what a brilliant album!!! Forever hooked to the classic "None Shall Defy" I was anxiously expecting this LP and it didn´t dissapoint me, au contraire, the fierce old school thrash metal riffing make this album so intense and ease to praise. 

The band have just launched an 8:18 minutes video for the title track, nad like the previous video clip ("House Of God") shows a dark aesthetic with powerful and explicit images that perfectly fit with the music.

Thrash till Death!!!
