NEWS FROM THE HORDES...
FORCE OF DARKNESS (Chile)
FORCE OF DARKNESS 's rare debut album from 2006 is finally re-released CD and a VINYL version is finally released for the first time as well. .
Already a classic of South American bestial raging Black Thrash mayhem.
The band's latest release, "Absolute Verb of Chaos and Darkness" (incl.5 new studiotrax) is still available on VINYL.
FORCE OF DARKNESS is Chile's hidden jewel when it comes to high quality Black Death Metal in the vein of old SARCOGAFO, INCUBUS, SADISTIC INTENT, MORTEM and explosive bands of similar caliber.
After the successful first EP "Unchained from the Crypt" (sold out now!), the second EP of the trilogy, "EYE OF THE PANTHEON" is out.
It includes three songs with a playing time of 13 minutes, all packed on a 7"EP.
EURYNOMOS stands for dark and heavy authentic traditional riff Metal with Okkulto (ex- DESASTER) on vocals, probably his rawest performance so far.
The third and last 7"EP from this EP trilogy will be out late April.
The title is "FIERCE ALLIANCE", once again 3 songs, again 13 minutes!
Be ready !
Here a Youtube teaser for the first EP, check it out:
"RECLAMATION OF THE FALLEN" will be the very first release of a new band: „KAM LEE“.
Kam Lee is known as one of the true pioneers and Tyrants of Death Metal! He is the legendary vocalist of MASSACRE and one of the founding members of MANTAS / DEATH. This 7“inch EP will include 4 songs, two originals and two coverversions!!! Limited to 666 copies, to be out on Halloween!!!
Buy or burn in the pits of hell!
ORCRYPT is mid paced Pure Goblin Black Metal trio that plays in the tradition of the early 90s underground, before Black Metal became popular.
Their album "MERCENARIES OF MORDOR" is out NOW!
Recorded with a demo tape audio aesthetic for added grimness, and full-on worship of "Lord of the Rings" (Bakshi>Jackson).
In the vein of early EMPEROR (demo), early GEHENNA, DARKTHRONE, BURZUM (1st album), HAR SHATAN, etc.
"Further Down Into The Abyss" new updated LP Version is out.
Also a cool as hell Shirt (see photo)
POISON's 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!
R.U. DEAD? (Germany)
"Dead but Alive" Doppel LP is OUT !
R.U.DEAD? was the successor of mighty POISON/ Germany!
"DEAD BY ALIVE" is collection of their releases plus rare live songs. More than 90 minutes of aggressive German Thrash/Death Metal from the old underground!!
TRIBUTE TO V.E.N.O. f*ckin' M.
An old idea from around 2002 is finally coming true.
A tribute to VENOM Album.
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 MORTEM, SUPERCHRIST, EURYNOMOS, GORGON (Japan), DESASTER and INFERNAL ASSAULT.
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 Autumn 2015.
