Extreme French doom metal band MONARCH have completed work on their new album “Sabbracadaver”, a sonic doom ritual presenting itself as MONARCH’s most colossal offering yet amongst a pretty extensive repertoire that spans a twelve year existence as one of Europe’s most recognized extreme doom entities.
Comprised of three tracks spanning 46 minutes, “Sabbracadaver” holds true to those familiar with MONARCH’s crawling, dark, yet enchanting and haunting style of time-stretching doom. Down-tuned, procession and funeral like, “Sabbracadaver” is an overbearing album in which once you get taken within its timeless vortex, there is no escaping the enveloping shadow that will…

The band are also known to tour relentlessly as well. They will enter the studio this summer to record the follow-up to last year’s “Rudiments Of Mutation” which will officially be a direct…

Nashville, Tennessee black metal band ALRAUNE have created a small buzz in their short existence through a few released demo tracks that have circulated online over the last year or so along with their recently released two-track cassette on Graceless Recordings. The people who would immerse themselves within these handful of tracks got a mere glimpse into the musically progressive dissonant occult black metal chaos that ALRAUNE unleashed, some even proclaiming ALRAUNE to be the next most promising prospect with the American black metal underground as evidenced HERE and HERE.

Chicago/Minneapolis pillage metal band WOLVHAMMER have completed work on their third full-length LP “Clawing Into Black Sun”.
What is easily the band’s best and most sonically punishing album to date, “Clawing Into Black Sun” also sees the band create their most musically accomplished album yet. Where their last LP “The Obsidian Plains” from 2011 saw the band bring a new level of musicality to their repertoire, “Clawing Into Black Sun” sees a maturity in the band’s level of composition as they take it that much further with their new album. Of course the pummeling raw no-frills fist-in-the-face attack of WOLVHAMMER…

Alongside their co-conspirators MITOCHONDRION (in which vocalist/guitarist Shawn Haché serves as AUROCH’s bassist while in turn AUROCH vocalist/guitarist Sebastian Montesi helms the pulse of death for MITOCHONDRION respectively), AUROCH create devastating technical yet furious dark sophisticated death metal that summons the classic Canadian death metal spirit (not exceeding the year 1996 of course).
