The new DAWNBRINGER album “Night Of The Hammer” is now available to order directly from our website prior to its Oct 28th official release date (vinyl edition sometime soon via High Roller). With “Night Of The Hammer” mastermind Chris Black continues in true heavy metal glory while at the same time creating the strangest (almost in the vein of “In Sickness And In Dreams” kind of strangeness) and darkest DAWNBRINGER album to date. Of course heavy metal continues to be the law nonetheless.

The CD versions of the new albums from OCCULTATION and MENACE RUINE are now available to order directly from our website. Two albums from two distinct and unique musical entities taking their sonic palette much beyond the standard musical templates being thrown upon us via the throng of mediocrity. The new OCCULTATION album marries the likes of obscure prog, classic ’80s goth and deathrock, and classic trad metal into a haunting opus.

Notorious experimental noise grind/hardcore outfit FULL OF HELL have completed work on their new full-length album “Full Of Hell & Merzbow”.
As the album title suggests, the new FULL OF HELL album sees the band collaborate with the legendary godfather of noise Masami Akita (aka MERZBOW) to create their most aesthetically potent, vicious, and most brutal offering yet. Where Masami’s noise creations become incorporated within FULL OF HELL’s song structures, this time the band taking their experimentation, noise, and violence towards a new artistic level that goes beyond anything in their already-expansive repertoire previous. Sonically, “Full Of Hell & Merzbow”…
