Cardinal Sin's classic and ultra rare 4-track ep "Spiteful Intents" finally available on cassette in its entirety.
Originally released as a 4 track mini-cd back in 1995. Nowadays a rare piece of metal history & one of the most sought after musical pieces on CD. Cardinal Sin delivered their own unigue style of Swedish melodic death metal & for its time the material was groundbreaking to say the least.
Featuring John Zwetsloot (ex Dissection), Jocke Göthberg (ex Marduk & Darkified) & Devo Andersson (Marduk).
Strictly limited to 200 units on Music Cassette (100 red tapes & 100 black tapes).
Elysian Blaze presents a brand new, stand-alone track entitled "The Virtue of Suffering".
"The Virtue of Suffering" serves as a vehicle of re-emergence after years of silence.
"Light the way O Spirit,
through Endless night.
Light the way back Morning Star,
lead us beyond the light."
NOTE: "To be clear, after years of unsucessfully tyring to record the follow up album to "Blood Geometry", I decided to focus my energies on recording and releasing a single track. As you may be aware, the material for the next full length album has been written for quite a few years now; I just need to record it. So instead of starting and re-starting the recording process with nothing to show for it, creating a single track has allowed me to finally share new music with you all. In this period of silence I've had to re-assess the ways in which I create and manifest the multiverse of Elysian Blaze. Being able to finally share new music is energising and strengthening. The prospect of recording a new album doesn't seem so daunting now, and my focus is now on finally completing that goal. Thank you for your patience.
Helter Skelter - Blood Harvest is proud to present SERPENTRANCE's debut mini-album, The Besieged Sanctum, on CD & vinyl LP format.
Originally released as a limited-edition cassette in early 2015, The Besieged Sanctum introduced this Russian cult to the international underground with a lurking menace. Comprised of members hailing from such elite hordes as Pseudogod, Ill Omened, and Sickrites, SERPENTRANCE create a swirling, sulfurous maelstrom of ritualistic black/death trance. Both seemingly improvised and militantly martial, The Besieged Sanctum heaves its hulking mass in a deceptively doomed manner: always a sense of vertigo engulfs the listener, no matter the tempo - from sub-atomic crawl to blastbeaten bestiality - and textures bleed in and out like a lingering fog. Now amended with an exclusive bonus track, the 31 minutes comprising the 12" vinyl version creates a gestating womb of eldritch dread and incantory solemnity. Enter The Besieged Sanctum with SERPENTRANCE...
The time has come and therefore has the end to be.
Scheduled to be released on the 18th of May 2018,
the final NECROS CHRISTOS album entitled -Domedon Doxomedon- will surely cut a swath of destruction
through the world of today`s Heavy Metal scene. Operating totally against the modern zeitgeist of music with all its easy listening and fake productions, this record will become a fist in the face for those searching for light entertainment.
Being a triple CD and LP album with an overall playing time of 113 minutes, the record builds a monumental cathedral in its own.
While the groups` second and monolithic output -Doom of the Occult- appeared like a classical oratorio with its lengthy proportions, this magnum opus will be of biblical dimensions, a funeral mass of unseen yet unheard reverberations. Alongside the numerous musical interludes named temples and gates, for which the band is known for, the actual nine Metal songs defy any exegesis. Epic yet utmost angry, brutal yet extravagantly dark, if your soul survives a complete listening of mind – blowing tracks such as ´Seven Altars Burn in Sin´ or ´The Heart of King Solomon in Sorcery´ without being dragged into the abysmal regions of hell,
your senses will be left in disbelief. From the unusual, mind – demanding opener ´I Am Christ´ until the final, musical ennead called ´In Meditation on the Death of Christ´,
the album functions as a gateway to truly divine spheres.
Gaining inspirations from such untouchable sources as MORBID ANGEL, CANDLEMASS
or even METALLICA (just hence the wonderful middle part of ´Seven Altars Burn in Sin´ with its incredible harmonics) intertwined with NECROS CHRISTOS` very own kind of atmosphere and brand of composing songs,
-Domedon Doxomedon- shall be their grandiose testament.
The legacy of a band, which never bowed before any trends, never compromised in their music nor did they ever walk the easy way. Dom. Doxom. has to be heard to be believed and the earth will tremble.
Endtyme Death Metal shall unfold.
Taken from the forthcoming album "White Noise and Black Metal". Release Date: June 22nd, 2018.
Tesco Organisation presents ¨Freedom Locked¨, the debut LP by MORAL ORDER. A work marked by the pressure power electronics and the old-school industrial in which Fernando O. Paíno exposes his more aggressive and severe side. Eight songs in which the noise is mixed masterfully with experimental and dark ambient, offering a varied, original and unique style. The agony and the restlessness merge in monolithic notes that ooze hatred. MORAL ORDER supposes an exacerbation in Paíno's style, distancing itself from the rhythm that defines its DA-SEIN parallel project.
