It’s been a really long time coming, but COBALT are finally going to be playing the first official live shows beginning at this year’s Maryland Deathfest where they will be playing the opening Thursday, May 23rd evening and will go on right before the mighty Bolt Thrower (EVOKEN and PALLBEARER also playing that day too). After MDF, COBALT will continue on a small trek beginning on May 27th and bringing the destruction with the depraved band LORD MANTIS. The dates are as follows:
05/23 – Baltimore, MD @ Maryland Deathfest*
05/27 – Pittsburgh, PA @ Smiling Moose…

The new ALTAR OF PLAGUES album “Teethed Glory & Injury” (CD version for the time being) is now available to order exclusively from our website (this being the North American version of the new album) prior to its official release date of April 30. Unlike anything the band have released before, “Teethed Glory & Injury” sees ALTAR OF PLAGUES at the height of their power and creativity by unleashing their most intense, mental, and accomplished album to date. What will undoubtedly be seen as one of 2013’s triumphs in extreme music.
After being out of print for ages (“Eater Of Birds” being out of print for years, no need to pay $40 on ebay any more), COBALT’s two seminal masterpieces are finally back in stock (CD format) in time for the band’s appearance at MDF (their first official live show) and the impending tour dates following MDF (more on this shortly). Fucking destruction.
The self-titled anticipated debut album from VHOL is now available to order through our website (CD version). Featuring Mike Schedit of YOB, John Cobbett of Hammers Of Misfortune/ex-LUDICRA, Sigrid Sheie (Hammers Of Misfortune/Amber Asylum) and Aesop (AGALLOCH/WORM OUROBOROS/ex-LUDICRA), the VHOL debut LP will be unlike any metal album you’ll hear in 2013.
