FULCI - New Visualizer Video - New Horror Death Metal Album "Duck Face Killings" via 20 Buck Spin

Italian Horror Deathers FULCI have unleashed a second track from their long awaited new album "Duck Face Killings", set for release on August 9th 2024 via 20 Buck Spin.

Check out the visualizer video for "F*cked with a Broken Bottle" here: https://youtu.be/W8ryFLgN5pQ

For their 4th bloodthirsty full-length, the band presents a homage to one of Lucio Fulci’s most depraved and reviled films, "The New York Ripper".

Musically FULCI unleash a barrage of captivatingly gruesome riffs, gory pummeling, murderous slams, low-pitched guttural vocal patterns, and eerie intros and interludes. The band’s songwriting is consciously fixated on creating the most violent and sharpened music possible to convey the films extreme savagery, imagining a soundtrack for the most grisly and cynical slasher flick ever made.

Described by the British Board of Film Classification’s Carol Tpolski as "simply the most damaging film I have ever seen in my whole life", it was banned in the UK upon its 1982 release for the next 20 years. With "Duck Face Killings", FULCI's brutal delivery and graphic depiction of their mentor’s violent world shines like the glimmer of blood under the NYC street lights, shocking and wild.

The album features cover artwork by Wes Benscoter and guest appearances by Lord Goat of Non Phixion and Wood of Skinless. Synths contributed and performed by TV-CRIMES.

A first track, entitled "Rotten Apple", has been premiered at this location with a visualizer video: https://youtu.be/1XjPU5AXW3M

02. A Blade In The Dark
03. Fucked with a Broken Bottle

TEMPLE OF DREAD - New Album "God Of The Godless" via Testimony Records - Lyric Video Premiere

German death metallers TEMPLE OF DREAD proudly announce their fifth full-length album "God Of The Godless", set for release on October 4th 2024 via Testimony Records on CD, LP and in digital formats.

Like its highly acclaimed predecessor "Beyond Acheron" (2023), "God Of The Godless" comes with a massive production courtesy of drummer Jörg Uken, who owns and runs the renowned death metal smithy Soundlodge Tonstudio, and features a cover artwork by Italian artist Paolo Girardi. There is even a return of a guest-contribution by former Morgoth, now Insidious Disease and Asinhell vocalist Marc Grewe.

Building on their brutal death metal base, TEMPLE OF DREAD also work with dark and heavy parts as well as a surprising dash of melancholia - and even some knife-tips of black metal spice. Lyrically, they continue to upgrade the genre's traditional splatter-themes by translating them into the realm of classical myth. For the lyrics of "God Of The Godless", the East Frisians continue the fruitful collaboration with their friend and word-smith, the psychologist Frank "Doc" Albers. Furthermore, the trio has decided that it is time to leave their Northern German island and go raiding the rest of the world by performing live with an extended line-up. Watch out for crushing Frisian death metal in your neighbourhood!

A lyric video for the album's opening track, "Carnage Ritual", has been unleashed now at this location: https://youtu.be/9920UxeVS-I

Guitar shredder Markus Bünnemeyer comments: “Our first single ‘Carnage Ritual’ musically goes back to the beginnings of TEMPLE OF DREAD. No compromises, no experiments - just four minutes full steam ahead! The lyrical content is just as accurate: In Greek mythology, the people of Athens were compelled by King Minos to choose seven young men and seven young women to be offered as sacrificial victims to the monster Minotaur, to be killed in retribution for the death of Minos` son… The lyrics were once again visualized by Ecuadorian director Christian Kdrumworm (k-drumworm-media) with great attention to the details of the incredible artwork by Paolo Girardi!"

With "God Of The Godless", TEMPLE OF DREAD are again pushing the benchmark for intelligent death metal brutality to a higher level!

DEMON BITCH - New Studio Album "Master Of The Games" via Gates Of Hell Records

Gates Of Hell Records is proud to announce the signing of Detroit power metallers DEMON BITCH. The label will issue the band’s long-awaited sophomore album “Master Of The Games” later this year and reissue their 2014 “Death Is Hanging…” EP and heralded “Hellfriends” first full-length.

DEMON BITCH was formed in 2011, and after the aforementioned “Death Is Hanging…” EP, released “Hellfriends” in 2016, which was hailed by Toilet Ov Hell as “passionate, clever, and often outright bizarre, Demon Bitch accomplish everything that the hordes of modern bands trying to find their niche wish they could.” This was echoed by Ride Into Glory, who relayed, “Demon Bitch are an exemplary band, and we can only hope that their contributions thus far are only the beginnings of a long and prosperous career.”

The DEMON BITCH name should ring familiar to Gates Of Hell devotees: The band features several members of the heralded WHITE MAGICIAN within its ranks, including vocalist Logon, the guitar tandem of Lord Mars and D.B. Cooper and drummer Reverend Ceckowski. (Bassist B. Beastmaster completes the band.) Since then, WHITE MAGICIAN and ISENBLÅST (the band featuring Beastmaster) responsibilities temporarily sidelined DEMON BITCH, but the band is back and ready to ascend to the next level.

It starts with “Master Of The Games”, which was recorded in Lansing, Michigan, between 2022 and 2024 with George Szegedy, who was also at the helm for WHITE MAGICIAN’s “Dealers Of Divinity”. The band pulled in some additional help from their great friend Matt Prestone (DUNGEON BEAST, GHOST TOWER), who was previously responsible for recording “Hellfriends”.

According to Logon, “Master Of The Games” should ring true to those who devoured “Hellfriends”. “I’d say it’s a chaotic offering of obscure and underground U.S. power metal and classic heavy metal with some eclectic moments ranging from 1970s sensibilities to more extreme influences,” he says. “Fans of ‘Hellfriends’ won’t be disappointed—we’ll still offer a raw, unhinged and over-the-top approach. This album is different in that it might have more epic moments and a little more fruit to chew through before you get to the seed.”

The album’s first single is “Into The Archways”, a fast and relentless cut with neo-classical tendencies that tells the tale of a man and his symbiotic relationship with the castle to which he’s confined. “The castle walls sing songs for the souls that they claim, but all you hear is the clashing of chains calling you ‘Into The Archways’,” shares Logon.

With “Master Of The Games” delivered to Gates Of Hell and a new single on the way, DEMON BITCH is preparing to make their inaugural European appearance at Germany’s Chaos Descends festival in July, which will be followed by a few more intimate co-headlining gigs in Austria and Croatia with WHITE MAGICIAN.

“Fans can expect to witness the onslaught of a strange and loud intrigue dealing with the dramatics and dark romantics that make up DEMON BITCH,” says Logon. “You’ll have a chance to hear a couple of new songs, as well as a healthy dose of classics from ‘Hellfriends’ and maybe even earlier works.”

ATARAXIE - New Album "Le Déclin" via Ardua Music & Weird Truth Productions in October 2024 - Extreme Doom/Death Metal

Extreme doom/death veterans ATARAXIE proudly announce their new and fifth overall full-length album entitled "Le Déclin", set for release on October 25th 2024 via Ardua Music & Weird Truth Productions on CD, double LP, tape and digitally.

Born in the fall of 2000 in Rouen (France), ATARAXIE take their main inspiration from the early 90s doom/death metal scene and slowest 80s/90s death metal bands. Thus, their genre mainly includes old school death metal parts and classic doom metal ones slowed down in the most extreme way but also various influences from the bleakest metal genres. Their music plays a lot with contrasts in general: ultra slow crushing parts alternate with furious blast beats, mournful parts with more epic ones, and vocals also varies from really deep grunts to tormented screams. Topped by a triple (!) guitar attack, ATARAXIE is a must for fans of diSEMBOWELMENT, Evoken, early My Dying Bride, Morgion, Cathedral, Esoteric, Asunder, Mournful Congregation, Spectral Voice or Incantation.

Lyrically, "Le Déclin" pushes the themes that were already present on its predecessor "Résignés" with a focus on subjects like manipulation and obfuscation of the masses, the cult of selfishness, dehumanization towards a parasiting virtual life, global warming insolubility, and reflects the unique musical style of ATARAXIE.

More info, cover artwork and pre-order options will be revealed soon - stay tuned!

LACERATION - New Video Clip - Sophomore Album "I Erode" via 20 Buck Spin

Bay Area Deathers LACERATION have revealed a video clip for the song "Strangled By Hatred", taken from their upcoming new album "I Erode".

Check it out here: https://youtu.be/Ugijge47SLk

The band's sophomore full-length will be unleashed via 20 Buck Spin on July 26th 2024 on CD, LP, cassette and digitally. It was recorded by Matt Harvey of Exhumed / Gruesome and mixed and mastered by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios (Undergang, Vastum, Ulthar, High on Fire). The artwork was created by James Bousema (Frozen Soul, Kerry King, Celestial Sanctuary, Morgul Blade).

Over the band’s lifetime, years of work and subtle refinement manifest now in LACERATION’s most assured and viscious material to date.

Absolutely loaded with hallmarks of US Death Metal’s peak era, "I Erode" vehemently explodes outta the gate with merciless riffs, savage tempos, tastefully fleshripping solos and the malevolent undercurrents of aggressive Death Thrash perfection. Striking an ideal balance of technical and straightforward, high speed and mid-paced breaks, and a concise, to the point attack packed with variety, "I Erode" offers a purely addictive shot of real Death Metal adrenaline in a lineage that includes Demolition Hammer to Morgoth to Suffocation.

While perhaps invoking a sense of nostalgia, the fact is LACERATION’s evolved confidence and commitment to a song’s unsparing execution erase any focus on era on the neck-breaking "I Erode". The dedication to the Death Metal form’s timelessness and high standards for true acknowledgment mark LACERATION’s output now more than ever.

2. Excised
3. Sadistic Enthrallment
4. Vile Incarnate
5. Dreams Of The Formless

PHAËTHON - Debut Album "Wielder Of The Steel" via Gates Of Hell Records - UK Epic Heavy Metal Track Premiere

Gates Of Hell Records proudly announces the debut full-length of London based Epic Heavy Metallers PHAËTHON, set for release on August 30th 2024.

"Wielder Of The Steel" is an eight-song herald of metal reverence and majesty that will no doubt appeal to fans of Manowar, Mercyful Fate, Bathory and Cirith Ungol. A masterclass in metal glory!

The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Tom Dring at The Arch Recording Studio in Southport, England. Of immense consequence to the album’s sound is the construct of The Arch, which is a repurposed Methodist church. The Arch’s hallowed halls were ideal for drum tracking — a crucial element in capturing epic, old-school heavy metal. The setup also enabled PHAËTHON to track the rhythm section (drums, two guitars and bass) together, allowing PHAËTHON to sound like a band and not a collection of individual instruments.

The numbers on "Wielder Of The Steel" share a common thematic thread, with the cautionary tale of PHAËTHON at its core. The songs delve into the profound impact of narratives on humankind – be it of gods, superstitions, or outright lies - extending beyond the confines of Greek mythology. It is fitting lyrical matter for an album that brilliantly weaves a sonic and narrative journey through eras of valour and conflict, empires lost to time, and epic tales of defiance and ambition, all laying bare the eternal juxtaposition between mankind’s hubris and his indomitable spirit.

The first single, "Eternal Hammerer", has been premiered at this location: https://youtu.be/2-34cUhETh4

1. Eternal Hammerer
2. Vanguard of the Emperor
3. For the Greater Good of Evil
4. Tolls of Perdition
5. Blasphemers
6. Forgotten Gods
7. Phaëthon Must Fall
8. Wielder of the Steel

CONCRETE WINDS - New Album "Concrete Winds" via Sepulchral Voice Records - Track Premiere

On August 30th internationally, Sepulchral Voice Records will release CONCRETE WINDS' highly anticipated third album, self-titled "Concrete Winds", on CD, LP and MC formats.

To all death metal lunatics and black metal psychopaths left out there in this toothless and tamed scene, let us proclaim the word! CONCRETE WINDS are back to push spikes, needles, and barbed wire into your flesh and ears.

Once again, the noise aggressors slit the veil from beyond and step into our world to pillage and hound to death all what was known, predictable, and comfortable in metal music. Their third album is self-titled for mandatory reasons and shows the band furthermore exploring the EXTREME in extreme metal. This truly is rabies set to music!

No less than Lawrence Mackrory - with the help of Matti Mäkelä - recorded, mixed, and mastered this cacophonic eruption mostly at Rorysounds Studios in Uppsala, Sweden. All of it is bound together in nine signature two-word-titled songs that altogether does not exceed the 27-minute mark. Calculators may wrongly estimate it as "short", but measured in CW units, it has the perfect length to die a thousand deaths.

Check out the track "Infernal Repeater" at this location: https://youtu.be/B8FQbey4Oqg

1. Permanent Dissonance
2. Virulent Glow
3. Daylight Amputations
4. Infernal Repeater
