"...
definite Floridian sound, delivering a rhythmically dynamic, head-thumping death metal charge that's a real throwback, but a refreshing one at the same time. Wait for the screaming guitar solos." - NoCleanSinging.com

TRENCHROT's Necronomic Warfare Out Now on Unspeakable Axe Records

Unspeakable Axe Records has given worldwide release to Necronomic Warfare, the debut album from death metal war machine TRENCHROT. 

The album's title track is streaming at this location.

Order Necronomic Warfare at www.unspeakableaxerecords.com

With influences ranging from other war-themed bands like Asphyx and Bolt Thrower, to the vomitous vocals and epic, soaring lead work of Obituary's Cause of Death, this is an old school death metal album that doesn't feel self-conscious about being what it is.  It just crushes everything in its path, and leaves the bloodied listener staggering away... and grinning ear to ear.  Members are in other promising new bands, such as Crypt Sermon - whose first demo will see a cassette release from Dark Descent Records soon - and Infiltrator, and promise to soon be well-known names in the underground.




"True to the old school of death metal, their new record Necronomic Warfare is a testament to the undying power that true death metal will always have." - Two Guys Metal Reviews

"The sound is powerful and crushing, the riffs highly magnetic and highly variable, with the pace moving between a battlefield charge and a slow stagger through the corpse-strewn aftermath of the conflict..." - No Clean Singing

TrenchRot makes music within the structure of two rules:
1. Play Death Metal
2. Crush posers

UK Super Metallers MONSTERWORKS to Release Universe March 11

13.7 billion years in the making, Eat Lead and Die Music is pleased to announce the impending release of MONSTERWORKS' Universe on March 11, 2014. The album will be available as a download and special-edition, numbered digipak 5.1 surround mix on DVD signed by the band, with lyric booklet. 
 
GunShyAssassin.com has posted the exclusive premiere of the title track from Universe. Listen now at this location.
   
Vocalist/Guitarist Jon had this to say about the themes surrounding the album:
"This is our follow up to 'Monsterworks :: Earth' from last year.  We wanted to top ourselves conceptually, so how to surpass an album about the life cycle of Earth from birth to death?  It could only be an album about the life cycle of the Universe from birth to death.  At least it started out that way with lyrics exploring big bang to heat death, but it gets a little philosophical along the way considering the path mankind might take in its evolution.  It is a bloody long time until the last black hole evaporates.  

'Universe' is an ode to the great void and everything in it.  We aim to produce metal which blurs the boundaries between preposterousness and the familiar while hopefully initiating a little independent thought along the way."

Violence and the Macabre, the first full-length offering from Philippines-based brutalists DOWN FROM THE WOUND in seven years, is now available on Comatose Music.

Preview and purchase the album at www.comatosemusic.com.

After signing with Comatose in October 2012, DOWN FROM THE WOUND went  to work on the follow-up to their 2007 debut, Agony Through Rituals of Self Purification. The results see the band return with 50 minutes of flesh-shredding Southeast-Asian brutality with old-school atmosphere and organic production. DOWN FROM THE WOUND are no strangers to the death metal scene; they have been punishing eardrums since 2002 with their nasty combination of inhuman breakdowns and technical riffing reminiscent of bands like DISGORGE, GORGASM and LUST OF DECAY.


Violence has prevailed...



"The perfect way to start 2014. Relentless and raw tunes from a band that honors Philippines and its extreme scene in the best way. Fuck Christmas and decapitate Santa. This year sets off brutal... Yeah!" - Brutalism.com

"Want to get your ears wrapped around some tasty, slamming Death Metal played well and executed like only true fans of the genre can? Look no further." - Wonder Box Metal

Possessed To Headline Obscene Extreme Festival, Cattle Decapitation Announced!

 


















 
Without death metal's founding fathers, Possessed, Obscene Extreme would be a very different festival indeed. Forming in San Francisco in 1983, the band dragged thrash metal into darker and heavier places with their classic albums ‘Seven Churches’ and ‘Beyond The Gates’ on Combat Records. Possessed created a whole genre and then faded away like ghosts. Reforming around vocalist and founder Jeff Becerra in 2007, the original death cult are back and they're writing new material too. Obscene Extreme 2014, prepare yourself for a new chapter in the unholy book of the dead... 
 


















Making an overdue return to Obscene Extreme since their debut visit in 2010, furiously outspoken death/grind San Diego outfit Cattle Decapitation have been confirmed to play at Obscene Extreme Festival 2014. Obscene Extreme organisers are proud to welcome the US powerhouse who will take their razor-wire brand of technical death/grind back to Trutnov, Czech Republic to pick up where they left off… filling the pit with teeth, blood and bones. 

Having set a terrifying new standard with 2012's ‘Monolith Of Insanity’ – a chaotic slaughterhouse floor of chainsaw riffs and bolt gun drumming – Cattle Decapitation are at their absolute best.

Obscene Extreme 2014, prepare for the slaughter!!! 
Obscene Extreme tickets are on sale now – http://www.obsceneextreme.cz/

Lucifer's Hammer Night Sacrifice (Demo MMXII) Out Now on Shadow Kingdom Records

 
Night Sacrifice (Demo MMXII) from Chilean traditional heavy metallers LUCIFER'S HAMMER is available now digitally on Shadow Kingdom Records. A cassette tape version is tentatively set for a mid-February release; the exact date will be announced soon.  Shadow Kingdom Records' Tim McGrogan had this to say about the release:
"Shadow Kingdom Records is proud to introduce from the land of Chile, Lucifer's Hammer! This is very reminiscent of rare '80s US metal gems like SALEM'S WYCH, GRIFFIN, HEATHEN'S RAGE, DAMIEN THORNE, etc. Also more-well known acts like IRON MAIDEN, '80s JUDAS PRIEST play a huge role in the development of their sound. They're one of those rare new bands that could actually fool people into thinking they're an obscure Heavy Metal act from the '80s that fell beneath the cracks. Luckily for all of us, they're a brand new band just starting out and they have a lot of good songs in them. 'Night Sacrifice (Demo MMXIII)' is the very first of many releases to come. Check out this amazing band!"

Scottish Thrash Metal band AMOK release 2nd full length album "Somewhere In The West"

 


On November 29th, 2013 Scottish Thrash Metal band AMOK released their 2nd full length album entitled "Somewhere In The West" on the German Metal label WITCHES BREW (www.witchesbrewthrashes.de). Recorded between the months of February and July of 2013 at AMOK HQ, Hamilton, Scotland. The album was produced, engineered and mastered on location at Grindhouse Recordings, Hesperia, CA, USA. "Somewhere In The West" is an evolution of Amok's already distinctively heavy, yet very accessible sound: the album fuses together technicality, speed, aggression, power and melody to produce a fresh outlook on modern thrash metal. Telling stories through lyrics of poverty, corruption, addiction, lawlessness and the general deterioration of the civilized human world, "Somewhere In The West" promises to wipe out any pre-conceived notions of what a Thrash Metal album is.

"Somewhere In The West" as well as their debut full length "Downhill Without Brakes" are now available for purchase at the WITCHES BREW Webstore: www.witchesbrewthrashes.de/shop/en/search?controller=search&orderby=position&orderway=desc&search_query=amok

Amok: The Premium Brand of Scottish Thrash Metal

The brainchild of Calum Henderson and Greg Corlett, Amok formed in early 2004. Angered by the metal nonsense bred out of the early noughties, the brief for them was simple: write and perform some of the heaviest and most relentless songs possible! Intense writing, practice and home-based recording provided a solid foundation and within no time a strong line up was formed.

With the pieces in place, Amok commenced their calculated attack on the unsuspecting Metal Scene. Planting the seed by spreading the word through the then-flourishing social media circuit along with an old school fly posting campaign, the news was out and the battle lines drawn. A hectic gigging schedule throughout their native Scotland followed, coupled with the release of demo tracks as Amok set out to convert the metal masses and catch the attention of the congregation. The band quickly became famed for their over the top and memorable live performances, increasing their already growing popularity and making them a staple within the Glasgow Metal Scene. Throughout their early gigs, blood was shed, bones broken, vomit induced and equipment smashed to pieces as the boys continued to make their statement of intent known.
With the emergence of the Thrash Metal revival in the UK, Amok ramped up their barrage and invaded the rest of Britain. Stellar live performances showcasing new material let the rest know that the rumour was true and Amok where indeed a force to be reckoned with. Their hard work, determination and rising profile saw them duly rewarded with several high profile support slots paired with positive media exposure throughout the internet as well as a favourable mention within UK Metal Magazine Terrorizer upon, the release of their final demo 'Operation Thrash'.

Fast forward 4 years from their conception, to 2008, and Amok finally released their debut album 'Downhill Without Brakes'. This self-funded 40 minute offering encapsulated the fine-tuned and distinctive sound Amok had honed over the years. Unbeknown to Amok, within this release they had written what would soon become a cult anthem among Thrashers in the form of the track 'Thrash Island'. Its amusing, care free lyrics, catchy riffage and chorus hook struck an instant chord with its target audience and helped propel Amok's popularity to new heights. The album received positive reviews all round, both published and blogged, and saw German-based Metal label Witches Brew sign up Amok and promptly re-release 'Downhill Without Brakes', exposing the band to a new market. The album would prove to be hit and go on to be a cult favourite among thrashers worldwide, with downloads, physical purchases and streaming via YouTube still on the increase to date.

In early 2013, Witches Brew called out Amok to release their second album, bringing to an end their exile. With fresh goals, enthusiasm and riffs to boot, Amok made the radical decision to make their first ever line up change to spearhead their new era. This saw founding member and drummer Jamie Bremaneson make way for the incoming powerhouse Matt Storry, an extraordinary talent and close friend of the band. With the new look Amok ready and fired up, work commenced immediately on recording 'Somewhere in the West'. An evolution of Amok's already distinctively heavy, yet very accessible sound: the album fuses together technicality, speed, aggression, power and melody to produce a fresh outlook on modern thrash metal. Telling stories through lyrics of poverty, corruption, addiction, lawlessness and the general deterioration of the civilized human world, 'Somewhere in the West' promises to wipe out any pre-conceived notions of what a Thrash Metal album is, whilst  seeing Amok pick up where they left off - forging new paths within the genre and mixing things up.

On 29th November 2013, "Somewhere In The West" was released with Amok putting 'Premium Brand Thrash' back on the menu!

MARS RED SKY Signs with Listenable Records


Considered one of the greats of the European stoner rock scene, France's MARS RED SKY have gained international recognition due to a unique sound, based on thick infectious grooves and melodic aerial guitar riffs. This is truly a one of a kind experience, wrapped up by Julien Pras' ethereal vocals, Matgaz' powerful rhythms and Jimmy Kinast's pachydermic bass lines. Somewhere between doom metal and 70s psyche pop, MARS RED SKY intrigues and attracts the masses to celebrate this cosmic ritual of solar burning fuzz and reverberated atmospheres.
Driven by the huge success of their eponymous debut record, recorded in Spain's mystic Bardenas Desert and released in 2011, the band was invited to play on the largest European stages with Kyuss Lives!, Dinosaur Jr. and Sleep, as well as popular festivals like Eurockéennes de Belfort, Roadburn, London & Berlin Desertfests, Sziget Festival and SXSW (USA). All in all, MARS RED SKY has played in more than 20 countries. 
With their incredibly heavy and hypnotic performances, MARS RED SKY have been considered as one of the most thrilling live acts among the international stoner rock scene. In 2012, they paired up with French doom metal monsters Year Of No Light to release a three-track split record, which sold out in a blink of an eye.
The release of their Be My Guide EP in 2013 opened the path for an extensive tour across Europe, then across the Atlantic for gigs in Latin America. This is where the band recorded their new album, due out this spring on Listenable Records. A limited edition 7" EP containing exclusive material will be released in March, more details coming shortly.

Coldwar Ink Deal With Candlelight Records!

Candlelight Records is proud to announce the signing of Irish hardcore punks Coldwar! Debut Candlelight Records album coming 2014. Equally thrilled by the signing, Coldwar had this to say about it, “Coldwar are proud to announce that we have signed to Candlelight Records. We are very excited about our future with Candlelight and are honoured to be on a label with such a varied and talented collection of artists.” This is Coldwar with their latest recording ‘Pantheist’. 

Listen to 'Heart Of Darkness' from the upcoming Coldwar album 'Pantheist' https://soundcloud.com/candlelight-records/coldwar-heart-of-darkness 

Pantheism: The belief that everything composes an all-encompassing, immanent God, or that the universe (or nature) is identical with divinity. Pantheists thus do not believe in a personal or anthropomorphic god. The darkness of the soul, esoteric symbology, natural evil, scrutinization of the irregularity of the Gregorian calendar, the meltdown crisis point at which capitalist society presently finds itself, and the possible final gasp of our current ‘material age’, to pave way for a potential revolutionary shift in values-consciousness for a jaded humanity. These are some of the varied concepts with which Coldwar lyrically engage, in their latest anthology, and forth-coming release ‘Pantheist’. 

Formed in 1999 in Dublin, Ireland, Coldwar are influenced by underground hardcore punk and extreme metal. Fuelled by a rejection of Church & State institutions and other oppressive, intolerant and absolutist states of mind. To date, Coldwar have toured Ireland and the UK as well as having made several trips to Europe and the USA. The band have also played a number of festivals including Wacken Open Air (Germany), Obscene Extreme Festival (Czech Republic), Load As Fuck (USA), Day Of Darkness (Ireland), Up the Punks (UK), Cork Winter Fest (Ireland), Burning Oak Festival (Ireland), Subvert Festival (UK) and more. Coldwar have shared the stage and toured alongside bands such as Fear Factory, Soulfly, Sepultura, EHG, Suffocation, Anthrax, Hatebreed, Discharge, Napalm Death and many more. With four releases previous since their inception via Underground Movement each release has gained the band a growing fan base.
