The controversial and disturbing new album from Chicago’s LORD MANTIS “Death Mask” is now available to order exclusively from our website (CD version). Darker, more experimental, despondent, and overall more overbearing than anything they’ve done before, “Death Mask” is an album where you come face to face with the void. Happy Good Friday.

Chicago-based quintet THE ATLAS MOTH have completed work on their milestone new album, their third full-length entitled “The Old Believer”.
What will be recognized as the band’s most triumphant statement of their musical career, “The Old Believer” sees THE ATLAS MOTH create a gloriously transcendent and sonically powerful masterwork that will single them out and define them even more as one of the most important bands in America’s heavy music scene today. Through the trials and tribulations that have befallen members of the band during the creation of “The Old Believer”, the new ATLAS MOTH album also comes across…
The abhorred, dismal, world-destroying new album from Australia’s IMPETUOUS RITUAL is now available to order (CD version, vinyl currently in the works). Entitled “Unholy Congregation Of Hypocritical Ambivalence”, this work of universe swallowing death metal artistry sees the Australians deliver a much more brutal and obliterating album than their “Relentless Execution Of Ceremonial Excrescence” debut. As an aside, for those not into using PayPal, we are now taking direct credit card orders directly.

Acclaimed Pacific Northwest metal band AGALLOCH have completed work on their new album “The Serpent & The Sphere,” the follow-up to 2010’s “Marrow Of The Spirit.”
“The Serpent & The Sphere” sees AGALLOCH take their progressive musical oeuvre to another level, all while maintaining the classic AGALLOCH sound. It is an album that reveals the band’s darkest, most meticulously crafted, and atmospherically surging work of their seventeen-year career.
Captured by legendary producer/engineer Billy Anderson at Cloud City Studios in Portland, Oregon (and mixed by Anderson likewise at Everything Hz), “The Serpent & The Sphere” represents the most glorious sounding…
The devastating new COFFINWORM album “IV.I.VIII” (CD version) is now available to order exclusively from our website prior to its March 18th official release date. An album in which blows away anything the band have done in the past, the blasphemous outburst that is “IV.I.VIII” portrays itself as a world destroying sonic monolith of immeasurable proportions. Behold the dawn of imminent defeat.
Chicago’s depraved and morally impaired doom noise band LORD MANTIS have finally completed work on their third full-length album “Death Mask”.
Taking it way beyond and further into depths of unfathomable darkness, brutality, perversion, and violence, “Death Mask” follows up the band’s “Pervertor” predecessor album and essentially ups the ante on pretty much everything the band have been known to spew forth.
Easily presenting itself as LORD MANTIS’ most advanced, musically accomplished and challenging album to date, “Death Mask” is a disturbing glimpse into a world of psychosis, anxiety, horror, and mental instability. Where sonically, more of a focus…

PSALM ZERO were recently named by Time Out NY as one of the top new promising New York bands to emerge, and their debut album will serve its purpose as one of the most unique and singular albums to be released this year. They also are going on tour very soon (dates HERE). Very deep stuff.

Wold – Postsocial
Postsocial consists of five works, each denoting a point of the inverted star. The opening pieces, “Throwing Star” and “Inner Space Infirmary”, respectively deal with exterior and interior violence. “Five Points” and “Spiral Star Inversion” are themed around an exploration of the five-pointed star metaphor, culminating in ritualistic conjuration and copulation of the hag. “Sapphire Sect of Tubal Cain” provides further reflection. There are many other aspects to Postsocial, from within, which, Wold does not wish to disclose.
