The year's coming to an end and after a glorious year for the label starting with Affliction Gate (thanks to your support!), it's time to announce the first of three new releases scheduled for December 2016. With the monstrous vocalist of Solothus helming this band, and more importantly, with the band expertly combining black metal touches with Finnish death metal, this is something special, or so I'd like to believe. At this stage, I'm a bit worn (and broke) but I'm doing my best.
No Clean Singing helped me premiere a track off this EP HERE. Counting on your support fellas!
Sepulchral Curse (Finland) - 'At the Onset of Extinction' (2016)
Genre - Blackened Death Metal
Release Date - December 15th, 2016
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Tribulation, Solothus, Bolzer, Krypts, Corpsessed, Lantern, Dissection
Finnish death metal group with members of Solothus have decided to take a step ahead, leaving behind their old school death metal past but not entirely. Sepulchral Curse have weaned on the Scandinavian black metal influences and merged it with their irrepressible Finnish brand of death metal, forging a sound that's steely and unique. Reminiscent of early Convulse, Tribulation, Bolzer, Dissection, Dawn, Naglfar, Demigod and Putrevore all rolled into one, the music is extremely refreshing in its scope, majestic in its drive and lethal in its execution. While old school revivalists are dime a dozen, here's one daring to do something different using the time-tested DNA of Finnish death metal without compromising on the heaviness. Classic-tinged, immaculate, and progressive.
