Unholy Canadian black metal disciples GEVURAH have completed work on their debut EP of pure deathworship which has been christened “Necheshirion”.
“‘Necheshirion’ is Hebrew for ‘snake-like’,” state the duo that comprise GEVURAH. “It presents the process of the spiritual rebirth; the death of the flesh-ego, by blood, and the rebirth of the enlightened Self rising from its ashes by fire. It also hints at the next natural final step: death – the complete liberation of the Self. As for Gevurah, it is a spiritual entity. As individuals, we are Naught. As such, all you need to know regarding the entirety…
Ireland’s ALTAR OF PLAGUES have completed work on their most accomplished and all-encompassing album to date, “Teethed Glory and Injury”.
Unlike anything the band have crafted before, “TGAI” sees mastermind James Kelly take ALTAR OF PLAGUES’ sound way further and much beyond the promise laid down with their debut “Sol” EP and their debut full-length “White Tomb”. With the band’s second album, “Mammal”, said release would see ALTAR OF PLAGUES take their sound into much bleaker and primal territory, the album that would take ALTAR OF PLAGUES’ initial blueprint which they founded their sound upon to its peak.

VHOL, the new group comprised of vocalist Mike Scheidt, guitarist John Cobbett, drummer Aesop Dekker, and bassist Sigrid Sheie, have completed work on their self-titled debut album. One that has been deemed as one of the most anticipated metal albums of the year. Anticipated out of the curiosity of what VHOL is going to sound like and the pedigree at the band’s disposal with the members’ respective repertoires already at hand.
Initially formed by Cobbett and Dekker to create music together again post-LUDICRA fallout, VHOL would take shape quickly. When Cobbett and Dekker were thinking of a vocalist, their first…
ABYSSAL are a mysterious three-piece from the UK that play a twisted form of demented, ambient, dark epic death metal. Early 2012 they self-released their crushing debut album “Denouement”. Just over a month ago, on Jan 01, 2013 they unleashed their newest opus of death metal horror entitled “Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius”. Once again self-released by the band via hand-assembled CDs and digitally, “Novit…” would inevitably make quite the impression with its uncanny atmosphere of utter death metal darkness, reminiscent of the vibe found within such entities as MITOCHONDRION, PORTAL, ANTEDILUVIAN, and BLUT AUS NORD.
Said impression would…
