Official "Terror Abraxas" Shirts are OUT. Bothsided print, great quality!!! POISON (Germany)
Old German cult band agreed to re-release some of their old recordings on a CD. Their satanic and dark Thrash Metal was full of fresh influences back then which were VENOM, SLAYER and all the wicked bands from that time, but with an even harder and more extreme expression. This CD should kick the bootleggers asses and offer best quality possible, with old photos, liner notes, etc., done by Guitarist Uli. Without a doubt, POISON were the most extreme German band in their time when they attacked 1984 with their poisonous Black Steel!
DEAD TO THIS WORLD (Norway) The debut album "First Strike of Spiritual Renewance" from Norway's crushing DEAD TO THIS WORLD is out on both on LP and Picture Disc (both in a nice Gatefold sleeve). Expect highest Quality only. The coloured Vinyl is in tiger colours!

TARANIS (Belgium) TARANIS' second album "Flandriae" is released on noble LP Format. Expect a beautiful layout on Gatefold format. TARANIS stands for old school but still grim and serious Black Thrash Epic Metal Thundering!
Their selftitled debut (LP and CD) is still available.Check out the song on this page to get a rough idea about TARANIS' kind of old style Black Thrash Metal.
The band is working on new songs right now for a future release. The demo versions sound promising and show that TARANIS is one of the very few bands that know how to deliver true 80s style Black Metal, the way it was meant to sound. Stay tuned!
Here a selfmade video by the band...
AFTER DEATH (US) Mike Browning, the legendary drummer and singer of MORBID ANGEL, NOCTURNUS and ACHERON, offers a new revolutionary band that understands to combine occult magical sounds of today with the wicked feeling from his old cult-bands.
"Retronomicon" is a 110% professional sacrifice without any doubts. AFTER DEATH presents a total unique, atmospheric and occult Metal soundtrack! Definitely not another ordinary release! The Vinyl version will be sold out very soon.
The band has made a video for ne of their newest songs. Check it out.
MASSACRE (US) The MASSACRE album "Tyrants of Death" (feat. two of the finest and most legendary Death/Thrash Metal Demos + other material) is still available. It is filled with old rare photos, flyers, etc. and represents that era in the best way possible.Those who have never heard these Demos before will be blown away by the aggression and the animalstic power roars of Kam Lee who can be seen as the inventor of the vocal-style that is nowadays labelled as “Death Grunts”.Imagine the power of old SLAYER/ MANTAS/DEATH that is mixed with barbaric vokills.
MAGNESIUM (Japan) One of the oldest "New Wave of Japanese Heavy Metal in the NWoBHM-style"- bands is writing new songs for a future release. In the meantime, the old EP trax plus some nice surprises will be released on a Split CD with METALUCIFER's Heavy Metal Hunter Mini Album. More news soon.
TRIBUTE TO V.E.N.O. f*ckin' M. An old idea from around 2002 is finally coming true. A tribute to VENOM Album. VENOM has always been a big influence for quite a lot of IRON PEGASUS bands and the label itself.
It will not be just another tribute but a tribute with bands that somehow worked (or will work) with IRON PEGASUS or ROCK SAVIOUR, with bands who understand what VENOM was all about, like DESASTER, MORTEM, SUPERCHRIST, UNHOLY LUST, GORGON, etc. No cheap rehearsal or live stuff but real studio recordings. As a special feature, AFTER DEATH will do a coverversion of the entire "At War With Satan" song, something nobody has done before (as far as we know). Release date is not sure yet, but let's hope for Spring 2014.
