MENACE RUINE – “Alight In Ashes” Now Available To Order

The new MENACE RUINE album “Alight In Ashes” is now available to order through our website, prior to its Oct 2nd official release date.  Definitely the Montreal duo’s best offering to date, “Alight In Ashes” will serve as one of the most intriguing and mesmerizing releases we’ve put out all year.  Like an engrossing soundtrack to the Earth coming apart at its seams, caving and crumbling itself into oblivion.

INDESINENCE – “Vessels Of Light And Decay”

Should be almost done from the plant after massive delays.  Here is a couple of shots of the 28 page booklet that will be glued into the hardcover digibook.  What will most likely be or nicest looking/packaged release to date, and an album in which I consider one of the label’s proudest moments.

ATRIARCH – Complete Work On New Album

Portland, Oregon deathrock/doom masters ATRIARCH have completed work on their most resonating and powerful work yet, their new full-length album “Ritual Of Passing”.

Following up their acclaimed “Forever The End” debut from last year, ATRIARCH would slowly develop a strong distinct identity through their amalgamation of deathrock, classic ‘80s goth, doom and black metal respectively.  An intriguing mix which would mirror the powerful aesthetic and vibe brought forth from such bands as Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Cure, Christian Death, The Gault, and Asunder.  Through several years of trial, as the band would gradually develop and define their sound,…

INDESINENCE Album Delay

We’ve already posted this notification via our Twitter and Facebook pages respectively, but just to keep everyone up to date on the situation regarding the new INDESINENCE album “Vessels Of Light And Decay”.  Due to major manufacturing delays (considering materials were submitted three months ago, followed by a crucial proofing process) because of the slight severity of the packaging for what we consider one of the label’s proudest moments, we were forced to push the release date back at least a month to mid-Oct (Oct 16th if all goes accordingly).  It was initially supposed to come out officially…

BELL WITCH – Album/Tour Announcement, New MP3 Posted

Seattle extreme doom metal duo BELL WITCH, comprised of bassist/vocalist Dylan Desmond (also of Samothrace fame) and drummer/vocalist Adrian Guerra, have completed their soul crushing debut album “Longing” along with announcing a U.S. tour to coincide with the release of “Longing” respectively.

By creating massive, epic, and crushing soundscapes of doom, all this merely with just bass, drums, and a dual vocal pummel, “Longing” expands on the promise BELL WITCH laid down with their 2011 demo (link to Bandcamp), which was seen as one of the best doom metal demos of last year.   “Longing” (which features guest vocals…
