Finally after the release of “Misanthropy” 5 years ago legendary horde Pandemonium is back with the long-awaited new released album 'Nihilist'.
The material contains 9 blasphemous psalms, which are a continuation of previous albums and are referring to the ambience known from the iconic “Devilri.”
Full length CD consists of 46 minutes of characteristic oldschool, underground, Pandemonium styled death/black metal soaked with disquieting influence of misanthropy, death, darkness, insanity and nihilism.
The album was recorded in Mariusz Konieczny Heavy Gear Studio (Hellspawn). The recording session was attended by: Paul (vocals), Mark (vocals, guitar), Michael (bass), Mayor (guitar), Desecrate (drums), and Special Guests: Szymon (Tenebris) – vocals, Gary (Hellspawn) – guitar solos.
Album released in a traditional CD case on a golden CD. All copies hand numbered.

As longtime fans of the band, HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present a special vinyl pressing of ARMOURED ANGEL's Wings of Death demo.
Formed in 1982 and disbanding in 2001, ARMOURED ANGEL were Australia's very first extreme metal band - and for many years, one of its only ones. Originally released in 1989 on cassette tape and then a vinyl edition that's long out of print, Wings of Death was the band's second demo and first to truly nail the signature ARMOURED ANGEL sound: patient, pulsing, and largely mid-tempo death metal rife with nuance and molten power to spare. Although still early days at this point, contemporaries could be likened to Bolt Thrower, Asphyx, and Gorefest, but there's always been a certain clarity of expression to ARMOURED ANGEL that favorably compares to later Amebix; here on Wings of Death especially, their classic death metal uptempos bear a proud 'n' poignant pulse, symptomatic of strong songwriting even at this early stage in the band's storied history.
And although they would only release one album - and quite belatedly, at that - it was always the short-length format where ARMOURED ANGEL excelled most. The four-song Wings of Death stands as a testament to this fact, and more so the endearing legacy of one of heavy metal's true cult favorites.
Just like HELLS HEADBANGERS' earlier edition of Communion, this pressing is a one-sided 12" with a photo silkscreened on Side B.
March 17th sees the release of ASCENDED DEAD's debut full length 'Abhorrent Manifestation' on Invictus Productions in Europe & Dark Descent Records in America.
New album from Diabolical Messiah is out March 31st on Dark Descent Records.
Stomping out of the grave, Church of Disgust from US emerge yet again, this time with another full length that is even mightier than before. Memento Mori has given birth to a death metal monster, hearkening back to the era of early atrocities of Blood, Autopsy, Abscess, Necrophagia, Bolt Thrower and Grave. The music is downright intimidating, shades of doom highlighting the menace, as the death metal juggernaut rolls on, destroying everything in its path. 'Veneration of Filth' is one of the greatest albums to come out in this style, enhancing the archetypal qualities of death metal like never before.
Guest vocals are done by Mike Browning of Nocturnus AD, ex-Morbid Angel/Incubus, Tobi Zama of Sewercide and Jamie Stewart of Disevered.
The arts of Death Worship and Devilry are being executed once more in the madness-filled streets of Kadıköy.

Containing members from other honourable Turkish Metal desecrators such as Decaying Purity, Burial Invocation and Diabolizer, this manifestation of infernal perversions and glorification of death itself will be unleashed in February 2017 by Hellthrasher Productions on CD format, followed by vinyl version to be released by Blood Harvest Records in April/May 2017.
"Engulfed in Obscurity" will feature 9 songs of over 45 minutes, adorned with a sick artwork crafted by Nick Keller. Further details including sample songs, tracklist and final release dates to follow in December.
