Encountering Ordering Issues

It seems as of the last little while, some customers (most notably U.S. customers) have been experiencing some ordering issues when checking out with PayPal in our shopping cart system/store (which was set up in a different kind of way since we got the new website done, in order to match the specification codes we wanted to have for the store).  The most common issue is that PayPal hasn’t been accepting the address initially input in, by some customers trying to check out which in turn they can’t.  To avoid this, when you click on the “Billing Address…

ABYSSAL – Novit enim dominus qui sunt eius

Packaging for the official CD release of the latest work of twisted and epic death metal horror from the nameless-UK trio ABYSSAL.  Artwork is washed over with a metallic silver finish/light gloss for heightened effect on the packaging.  “Official” release date is April 2nd (need to have something just for distributor purposes I guess), but we’ll probably put them up for sale within the week.

ABYSSAL – Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius

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…


ALTAR OF PLAGUES have begun shooting a new music video for a new track from their upcoming album “Teethed Glory And Injury”.  It will be quite intense.  Here is still from the preparation of the video shoot.

And another still from the video shoot respectively:

PORTAL – “Vexovoid” Now Available To Order

PORTAL’s new work of death metal dementia, “Vexovoid” is now available to order from our website.  The long-awaited follow-up to “Swarth” is another manifestation of unbridled unorthodox sonic horror, death metal once again inverted, channeled through PORTAL’s most dense-sounding artistic offering to date.  Laid out upon the feeble mortal coil.
