Selfmadegod Records announced the signing of TERMINATE from Morton Grove, Illinois.
The mission of TERMINATE is simple: to play death metal the way it was meant to be played. Taking influences from death metal stalwarts Bolt Thrower and Autopsy, while maintaining a melodic sensibility akin to Swedish greats Dismember and Entombed is what defines Terminate sound.
Thanks to their self-released Thirst For The Obscene EP in 2011, Polish label Selfmadegod took notice of the crushing act and immediately inked a deal with TERMINATE to release their debut full-length in early 2013, which the members are currently in the process of finalizing. More details will be announced soon.
TERMINATE was formed in late 2009 by guitarist/vocalist John Porada and drummer Jim Smith. After releasing their Thirst For The Obscene demo, the lineup was completed with Tom Cardella on guitar and Alfred Mulle on bass. Consisting of veterans of the Chicago metal scene as well as the New York metal scene, the band has quickly made a name for itself, catching the attention of not only within their home city of Chicago, but also a core of underground fans across the world.

The concept and its shaping are extremely ambitious, and giving birth to it will be a long and difficult journey for the band. Eventhough we have a clear view of what the album should sound like, you guys will have to be patient, as we are hoping for a release on the Spring of 2014.
Swedish morbid Death Metal rebels NECROCURSE have named their debut upcoming full-length effort as "Grip Of The Dead".
"Grip Of The Dead" contains eleven tracks of uncompromising haunting Death Metal in true spirit of the ancient dark Heavy Metal attitude, and the vinyl version will include an additional bonus re-recorded track entitled "Souls Of A Thousand Funerals", previously from the "Shape of Death" MCD.
The vinyl version for "Grip Of The Dead" will be a joint collaboration between Blood Harvest Records and To The Death Records.
German progressive death metal behemoths DEFEATED SANITY will unleash Passages Into Deformity on February 5, 2013 through Willowtip Records.
Recorded at Soundlodge Studios in Germany with guest vocal appearances by Frank Rini (Internal Bleeding), AJ Magana (ex-DEFEATED SANITY, Disgorge US), and Brian Forgue (Syphilic, Gutrot) and sound effects performed by Jon Engman (ex-Brodequin), the nine-track follow-up to 2010s critically hailed Chapters of Repugnance will be paired with a bonus DVD featuring making-of clips, interviews with the band, and sick performance videos!
Said the band of their latest output: The album has a more old-school vibe to it, with a lot of early 90s inspired riffs and slams, but we made it a point to not get away from the technical and progressive stuff as well.
DEFEATED SANITY offers up a taste of the sonic slaughterfest with Verblendung at THIS LOCATION.
Here is the trailer for the film ForeBears by Marie CACHET and Varg VIKERNES. It will be available in English (subtitles, the audio is norwegian) on DVD from March 2013 ONLY on Amazon.
To summarize the story, Varg is thinking and discovers bit by bit what happened before. A kind of journey in reverse through time and in thought, to prehistoric time (about 30 000BC), up to a previous life when he was a little boy. Through what he lives again in this little boy, he understands the meaning of certain essential rituals of that prehistoric time, that still have a major influence on modern habits.

Having played in 11 states and shared stages with the likes of MACABRE, CATTLE DECAPITATION, WAKING THE CADAVER and INTERNAL BLEEDING, as well as self-released their debut EP, The Horrid Swarm, in July 2012, the band shows no signs of slowing down as of winter 2012. With their upcoming self-titled full-length, COGNITIVE will pick up where they left off with The Horrid Swarm, and deliver another release full of unmerciful technicality, pummeling grooves and vicious brutality.
