EXPULSER "Fornications" 12" EP reissue.



This is a cool reissue from Greyhaze Records, may not be a true gem but it is a very good and interesting record to unearth, dust it of  and give it a good listen.

EXPULSER was another "wild" band from the brazilian underground, the EP "Fornications" was originally released in 1990 as a split EP with Brutal Distortion, through the french label Maggot Records
Two years later the band released their debut full-length "The Unholy One" through Cogumelo Records, which is a more technical recording yet fast, brutal and totally blaspheme.
So if you are into the style and sound of bands like Sarcófago, SexThrash, Mystifier and other cult brazilian acts you should check this band out.

"Fornications" is available on 12" vinyl! get it right now, right here.

WORSHIP VINYL: SAMAEL "Blood Ritual" 25th Anniversary Edition



Purification by the blood! "Blood Ritual" the sophomore album by SAMAEL turns 25.  Time to celebrate and to get a special vinyl reissue (in case you didn´t get the 2011 version, reissued by Floga Records, or if you did but want to fulfill your collector´s vice and get this special reissue too.

This is a black metal gem, not "Nordic" black metal or "Under the Sign of the Black Mark" fast riffing inspired, this is gloomy, morbid, obscure, slow black metal.  "Beyond the Nothingness", "After The Sepulture", "With The Gleam Of The Torches" or the title track are superb.

This anniversary edition reissued by Century Media comes in a gatefold sleeve and includes a 60x60 sized cover art poster. The cover features the LP´s original cover artwork re-created from a brand new scan of the original painting  by Axel Herman, and reveal its more blueish character, which was lost on the first pressing.  An interesting detail revealed is that the artwork has not been polished digitally to show it exactly  the way it looks twenty-five years after being painted.

Apart from regular black vinyl there is a Gatefold white LP+CD+poster version (limited x 100 copies), a Gatefold silver LP+Cd+poster version(limited x 200) and a Gatefold light blue Lp+CD+poster version (limited x 200, Nuclear Blast exclusive)

Bloooooood Riiituuuuaaaaaaaaal...total consecration!

INTO COFFIN To Release "The Majestic Supremacy Of Cosmic Chaos"



Never heard about this band before (shame on me), but thanks to a recent post by Kat Shevil Gillham (expressing once again her good taste) I approached this band and had the pleasure to taste great doom death metal.

INTO COFFIN from Germany released a demo and a full-length so far and are about to release the new EP "The Majestic Supremacy of Cosmic Chaos" on December 4th via Terror Fom Hell Records.

Nothing but obscure and slow death/doom on this 1:19m video teaser, and I'm eager to have this record.  If you want this on vinyl (like me), the LP version will come out early in 2018, the CD version is already available here.

ABIGOR "Höllenzweng - Chronicles of Perdition" Album details revealed.



Austrian black metallers ABIGOR revealed details of the new album "Höllenzwang - Chronicles of Perdition" which will be released next year "after the summer makes way for the autumn´s gloom".

The band describes the new musical opus as performance and execution of black metal in a very traditional Old School way. ABIGOR shared a few insights about the concept of the album.

"...Our new album was recorded without a single "blastbeat", without multi-guitar madness or downtuned disharmonic riffing.  String wise, minimalism was the law - only one guitar left, one guitar right, and a bass in the middle.  Not one single additional guitar-track to add soli, melodies or double-tracks."

"Lyrically, all hokuspokus and theological pondering was avoided. It´s not an album of a seeker, or about one´s initiation, or to lecture, but about the Devil and the Devil only! An impulsive work stripped down to the very basics that maybe could have been released in the 1990s."

"This technical restriction as well as a focus on the the evil force that sparked Black Metal ablaze at the beginning of the 90s also torched our work again."

These words sound very promising indeed, but to accompany these words the band provided a stream of songs excerpts, check it out. Album tracklist below...




1. All Hail Darkness And Evil
2. Sword Of Silence
3. Black Icarus
4. The Cold Breath Of Satan
5. Our Lord´s Arrival - Black Death Sathanas
6. None Before Him
7. Olden Days
8. Hymn To The Flaming Void
9. Christ´s Descent Into Hell

10. Ancient Fog Of Evil
11. Metamorphosis
