"Endless Wound" is out now via Sepulchral Voice Records and available at High Roller Records online shop: Digi-CD + Vinyl

Produced with the heaviest sound possible "Endless Wound" crushes into the world like the spawn of primordial chaos.

ASHTAR - New Album "Kaikuja" via Eisenwald
"Kaikuja", the highly anticipated second album of Switzerland’s ASHTAR, will be released on May 15th 2020 via Eisenwald on CD, LP and cassette tape formats.
ASHTAR are a duo from Basel consisting of Nadine and Marko Lehtinen. Before they formed Ashtar in 2013, Nadine played in Shever while Marko played in Phased. In ASHTAR, Nadine writes all the lyrics and handles most of the vocals. In the studio, the duo play all the instruments themselves. In their live formation, ASHTAR are a quartet with two onstage guest guitarists.
Translated from Finnish as 'Echoes', "Kaikuja" is aptly titled, for its dense-yet-spacious soundwalls bear a rich ‘n’ reverberating strength. Trace elements of black metal and doom exist once again, but are further spliced with the DNA of drone, sludge, and even post-rock, making for a heady (and HEAVY) brew that’s seemingly served up with ease by ASHTAR. And even more so than the debut, for a band that’s “merely” a duo, these five epic-length songs emit an almost-impossible density, bewitchingly revealing new layers with each listen. And at nearly 40 minutes, the landscape ASHTAR paint here is far more vast than that compact runtime suggests.
The first track premiere to be found here: https://youtu.be/eR8DjLsMFqU

REEK - Debut Album via Testimony Records - Details & Trackstream
Testimony Records proudly announces the debut album of Swedish Death’n’Rollers REEK!
"Death Is Something There Between" will be released on April 24th 2020.
This band is a creation by the scene's troublemakers Rogga Johansson (Paganizer) and Håkan Stuvemark (Wombbath). It all came together in the summer of 2019 after a few songs were written and Håkan tested to sing which led to make a dirty and heavy Death'n'Roll album in the vein and sound of Entombed's mid 90s records. The line-up was completed by Jon Skäre (Defiatory, Wachenfeldt) on drums and Mathias Back (Fimbultyr) on bass.
"Death Is Something There Between" was mixed by Håkan himself at Studio Nostalgica, mastered by Thomas Von Wachenfeldt (Wombbath, Wachenfeldt) at Bowstead Studios and features a cover artwork by SV Bell (Amorphis, Rotting Christ, Kataklysm, Impaled Nazarene).

KHÔRA - Deal with Soulseller Records - Debut Album "Timaeus" Announcement
Soulseller Records proudly announces the signing and debut full-length release of KHÔRA!
"Timaeus" will be unleashed on April 17th 2020 on CD, LP and digitally.
Started as a one-man project by mainman Oleg in 2012-2013, KHÔRA strives to manifest the limits of Extreme Metal and produce both ethereal and ferocious tunes. After the first demo in 2016, Kranos joined on vocals and Lars joined on bass, both helping shape the core line-up.
Featuring an amazing artwork by Sergey Shenderovsky and guest contributions by Vicotnik (DØDHEIMSGARD), Henri Sorvali (FINNTROLL), A. Simonen (AND OCEANS) and many others, "Timaeus" is a carefully-crafted album which consists of black metal to death metal to symphonic and progressive elements. It was recorded between 2017 and 2019 and follows the theme of the creation of the universe by three omnipotent entities, loosely based on Plato’s dialogue of the same name.

TEMPLE OF DREAD - New Music Video "Sentenced to Life"
Testimony Records proudly presents TEMPLE OF DREAD's first official music video for the song "Sentenced to Life", taken from the album "Blood Craving Mantras" which was released in August 2019.
The video was shot by Polish director Łukasz Jaszak Design & Photography, who has already made a name for himself in the scene with cooperations with bands like Decapitated, The Vision Bleak and Vomitory. The video perfectly captures the hopeless mood of the song as well as the protagonist's longing for death, but deviates from the pattern of common music videos. The band itself only appears in form of images and other allusions in the video sequences.
TEMPLE OF DREAD are currently working hard and intensively on songs for their second album "World Sacrifice", which is expected to be released in summer 2020 and will again be produced by drummer Jörg Uken in his Soundlodge Studios.

TURIA - Full Album Stream "Degen van Licht"
Dutch black metallers TURIA proudly present their highly anticipated third album, "Degen van Licht", in its entirety at Metal Injection. It will be released via Eisenwald (CD&LP) and Haeresis Noviomagi (MC) on February 28th 2020.
Cavernous reverbs evoke great depths and heights, while analog delays reminisce the phantasmal rays of the sun. The years of playing live across Europe since TURIA’s last album "Dede Kondre" are revealed in an increased complexity of songwriting. Taking cues from mid-era Bathory to early Hawkwind, moving between ferocious sonic avalanches and churning dirges, "Degen van Licht" is sure to expand Turia’s idiosyncratic style of black metal into new territories.
The album is once again produced, recorded, and mixed by TURIA themselves with assistance of longtime collaborator M. Koops. A greater clarity in the production is enhanced by the tasteful mastering courtesy of Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios.
