Now available to order in their CD format and ready to ship prior to their official June 23rd release date, the new ABYSSAL album ” Antikatastaseis” which is a stunning expression of dark and violent melodic ambient death metal, and the debut album from VANUM “Realm Of Sacrifice” which is the new band formed by K. Morgan of Ash Borer/Predatory Light and M. Rekevics of Fell Voices/Vorde/Vilkacis. They have delivered one of the best underground black metal releases of the year through their first musical collaboration together.
Philadelphia, PA death metal band PISSGRAVE have completed work on their debut album “Suicide Euphoria”.
Following their infamous self-titled sold out demo which was released solely on cassette format via Graceless Recordings, PISSGRAVE’s unique style of raw violent buzzing death metal created a decent amount of awareness for the band, that alongside the band making an impression with their crushing live show (especially during their last U.S. mini-tour with DEAD CONGREGATION last fall) displaying their singular death metal vision.
With “Suicide Euphoria”, PISSGRAVE have created a swarming, skillfully played, yet primitive brutal death metal opus of pure darkness and depravity…
UK death/doom metal luminaries INDESINENCE have finished work on their massive third album, aptly titled “III”.
For nearly 15 years, INDESINENCE have been one of the most prominent death/doom metal bands to hail from the UK. The band who have carried tradition onwards and forged along with the torch passed on by the “Peaceville Three” (that being a reference to the very early ‘90s glory days of Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, and Anathema) may not have been the most prolific throughout their career, as some of their peers might have been, but INDESINENCE were never a band to oversaturate…

Obscure UK ambient dark death metal band ABYSSAL have completed work on their new album entitled “Antikatastaseis”.
Even though “Antikatastaseis” is their third full-length, not much is really known about the band (no real promo photos, no promotion/interviews/press, no live shows etc.) aside from them being slightly recognized over the last little while as one of the more intriguing death metal entities currently coming out of the UK. With their previous two full-lengths “Denouement” and “Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius” merely put online without any warning or issue and available via CDR for anyone who actually requested physical copies…
