HOUSE BY THE CEMETRAY - Deal with Pulverised Records / Debut album in the works

One of the latest collaboration between Swedish riff-machine Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Ribspreader, Bone Gnawer, Demiurge, etc) and legendary six-string hacksaw fiend Eric Cutler of the mighty Death Metal evergreens Autopsy, comes a new embodiment of horror and darkness under the moniker HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY!

HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY is a blatant adaptation from the 1981 cult supernatural horror film "The House By The Cemetery" directed by Italian Gore godfather Lucio Fulci and with that as the main influence and driving force, both Rogga and Eric started stewing up ideas for what eventually became an outlet for their love of horror films and of course Death Metal, with HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY. The perfectly-fitting HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY band logo was designed by Bob Toderico, who has done work for bands such as Asphyx, Sinister, Mefisto, etc.

Work on the group's debut album is now underway, with the mixing currently in progress. More details on the album will be announced at a later date.

"This record comes from our darkened souls of horror. May its blood drip from your turntable as it bludgeons your mind!", says Eric Cutler on the upcoming HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY debut album. Rogga Johansson adds: "Expect nothing but the dirtiest ugliest Death Metal we could spew forth."
ONHEIL - Digital releases + New video + Special live show

Dutch Blackened Heavy/Death Metal band ONHEIL proudly announces the digital release of their last two albums 'Storm Is Coming' and 'Razor'. Besides the CD format, these two albums are now also available through web stores and streaming services like Spotify, i-Tunes, Google Play and Amazon. Both albums are published by German record label Cyclone Empire.

The digital release is accompanied by a music video for the song “The Omega Legions” which contains mostly footage from one of their live shows, both filmed professionally as well as by fans in the audience.

Check out the video here: youtu.be/0dnVUNt1bfA

'The Omega Legions' is not only a song about nihilism and revolution, it's also how ONHEIL has named their fans. Especially the ones supporting the band at their live shows, headbanging like crazy or getting into the mosh-pit. The song and video is ONHEIL's way to pay tribute to these metal maniacs.

ONHEIL will also play a special headline show on the 27th of August at the legendary underground venue Baroeg, The Netherlands, to celebrate the occasion.

ONHEIL's latest album 'Storm Is Coming', which features the song “The Omega Legions' was produced and mixed by Bart Hennephof (TEXTURES) and Yuma van Eekelen (Ex-PESTILENCE) at the Final Focus Studios, The Netherlands. The mastering was done by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studios, Sweden (WATAIN, DESTRÖYER 666). The album booklet holds 16 pages of high-quality artwork of which a large part is done by an upcoming artist of the GrimTwins Studios (DEICIDE).

AKATHARTA - Deal with Pulverised Records

It is an absolute pleasure to welcome the latest unspeakable malevolence AKATHARTA!

With this creature spawned by none other than the infamous Death Metal legend Kam Lee (ex-Mantas, ex-Massacre, Bone Gnawer, etc), AKATHARTA didn't become a reality until 2015 when Kam eventually found the perfect musicians whom not only understood the darkness and horrific aura of this particular genre but also could deliver with feeling and conviction; especially more so in this form of music than the rest.

AKATHARTA is Kam Lee's dark vision of Funeral Doom Black Death Metal. Conceptualized over a decade ago around the year 2006 and being a huge fan of the Finnish Doom bands Thergothon, Skepticism as well as Wormphlegm; Kam wanted to something in a similar vein, music that evoked pure dismal dread and overwhelming foreboding doom.

Almost a decade later and through several unreliable different line ups, Kam finally found the proper musicians to bring this band into reality. With both Aaron and Travis of the band Cropsy Maniac, Aaron was writing music with such doom-laden expressions of turmoil and dread and Travis bringing in the heavy bone pounding doom-ridden beats of trepidation, this was the perfect line-up to finally bring AKATHARTA to the world. With a concept and lyrical theme based on the paranormal, ghost hunting and parapsychology lyrics based heavily upon hauntings from both the ancient mythology and modern urban mythology. Kam wanted to introduce something new and different into the music by incorporating actual E.V.P. (Electronic Voice Phenomena) or spirit voices throughout several recordings. The entire idea behind AKATHARTA is for Kam to deliver the most doom-laden, heaviest form of Metal he has ever done with the most profoundly heavy vocals and tormented agonizing woefulness he can muster.

A promo track entitled 'Pneumata' is now available for streaming at this location - akatharta.bandcamp.com/track/pneumata.
SARCOFAGO - Vinyl reissue of demo compilation

On October 7th, 2016 Greyhaze Records will release a vinyl LP reissue of “Die Hard” - the only official, comprehensive demo collection of Brazilian Black/Death Metal cult act SARCOFAGO.

Beautifully packaged as a double-LP with gatefold jacket, the album will be available on black and limited-edition yellow vinyl, including an over-sized booklet and poster, as well as liner notes by SARCOFAGO front man Wagner Antichrist. “Die Hard” includes material that had never before been made available, such as the band's very first demo recording, as well as material recorded for “Rotting” and “The Laws of Scourge”. Renowned artist Zbigniew Bielak (GHOST, WATAIN, etc.) created the artwork for a very limited slipcase version of the vinyl reissue.

You can stream the album in its entirety at this location: greyhazerecords.bandcamp.com/album/die-hard

Pre-orders are possible here: store.greyhazerecords.com

A digipak-CD version of “Die Hard”, which was previously released by Greyhaze Records, is available as well.

SARCOFAGO's influence and legacy in the realm of Extreme Metal cannot be overstated. Classics like “INRI”, “Rotting”, and “The Laws of Scourge” have paved the way for a large number of bands spanning various genres such as Black and Death Metal. The band's demos have been shamelessly bootlegged for decades and demand for an official demo collection has been constant.

VULTURES VENGEANCE - Deal with Gates Of Hell Records

In November 2015, VULTURES VENGEANCE emerged out of nowhere with “Rising”, a tape release limited to 150 copies. The result was amazing, considering that the band has almost no internet presence. The tape sold-out in less than a month only by word of mouth, with a great, unexpected feedback, especially from Japan and Germany.

Compared to other bands devoted to the 80s sound, VULTURES VENGEANCE has a darker and dustier approach. Also thanks to an appropriate recording, their compositions sound as if they’ve been just found in a basement’s lost box. Adding their personal share, the band shows a virtuoso quality not easy to be found elsewhere.

Their 30-minute debut EP “Where The Time Dwelt In” features an amazing artwork by Lena Richter and will be released by Gates of Hell Records on October 7th 2016, in a strictly limited edition of 500 compact discs and 500 vinyls.
WINTERHORDE - New video available

Israeli extreme metalllers WINTERHORDE are releasing a brand new video for “Worms of Soul”, a track taken from their highly acclaimed album “Maestro”, which was released on May 20th this year by ViciSolum Productions.

The elegant and theatrical video was directed by the multi-talented Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu, who have previously worked with bands such as At the Gates, Carach Angren, Mayhem and many more.

HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY - New lyric video available

Today, heavily trafficked web-portal NoCleanSinging.com premieres a new lyric video for Harakiri for the Sky's "Funeral Dreams." Check it out at this location!

The track hails from the band's highly anticipated third album, III: Trauma, set for international release on July 22nd via Art of Propaganda. Released in 2014 by Art of Propaganda, Harakiri for the Sky's Aokigahara reaped widespread critical acclaim for its startling synthesis of skyscraping post-rock textures and emotive black metal fury. Breathtaking and torturous in equal measures, the highwater mark that Aokigahara set has somehow been eclipsed by III: Trauma. Immediately, the album kicks off with an 11-minute epic titled "Calling the Rain," and indeed do Harakiri for the Sky summon forces both natural and supernatural. As the record winds through seven more equally scintillating epics, III: Trauma swells and swirls, crests and crushes, effortlessly dancing between genres with nary an ounce of self-consciousness. Not for nothing is the album titled Trauma: the emotional landscapes the band travail scrape both the direst depths and fleetingly blissful extremes of the human psyche.

1. Calling the Rain
2. Funeral Dreams
3. Thanatos
4. This Life as a Dagger
5. The Traces We Leave
6. Viaticum
7. Dry the River
8. Bury Me
