The Mexican carrion-devourers ZOMBIEFICATION have once again resuscitated from beyond the diseased grave, hellbent on excavating more fetor-drenched Death Metal!
Featuring five tracks of sepulchral audio-sickness,Reaper's Consecration" is a pandemonium of hideously somber Swedified riffage; often trespassing the boundaries of grisly extremes and branding their own style of unrivaled Death Metal stench!
Mixed and mastered by the acclaimed studio engineer Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio (Watain, Desultory, Deströyer 666, etc) and artwork / layout direction by ZOMBIEFICATION throat-butcher Mr. Hitch; "Reaper's Consecration" is the classick coalesce between inexorable Death Metal and corpse-walkers that roam the earth!
Nippon demented Thrash schizoids FASTKILL brews up yet another ultra-blazing Thrash Metal at hurricane speed!
Utterly repulsive and dangerously fast, "Bestial Thrashing Bulldozer" is the group's first full-length album in four years since the equally deranged "Nuclear Thrashing Attack"; FASTKILL is indeed the first-class act in unmerciful rapid-fire Thrash-anity! Includes a cover song from Japanese cult Thrash band Nigarobo's Endless Game.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Keisuke Okada (Disconformity, Gridlink, etc) at Sound Studio NOAH, Tokyo and with the macabre artwork cover by Kei Gomi, "Bestial Thrashing Bulldozer" will literally cleave your head off with fiendish machine-gun riffs, nasty pounding drums and hellish morbid screams!
The unsurpassed Death Metal monarchs MASTER returns with their eleventh full-length album "The New Elite", an odious showcase of brick-wall musical integrity that has been quintessential MASTER even during the band's early inception. Now with 30 years on, Paul Speckmann and his insult-brigade have shown no signs on mellowing, but only more hateful than ever!
Recorded, mixed and mastered at Shaark Studios (Root, Fleshless, etc) and with the emblematic artwork and layout designed by German graphic artist Mark Bridgeman, "The New Elite" is a bulldozing 45-minute audio-violence of social travesty and political coercion. Vehemently honest and the cruel truth does cut like a knife. This is MASTER! Period.
"Young, but already experienced Polish band Neyra, whose music is a mix of aggression of brutal death metal and thrash is preparing to show to the world new videoclip "Mors Nigra". Meanwhile the band is looking for a label for their first album called "Madness in Progress".

After two years of silence Polish death metal extreme act HELLSPAWN strikes a ferocious blow on the faces of infidels with their second album entitled The Great Red Dragon. The album premieres on June 6th, 2012, courtesy of Wydawnictwo Muzyczne Psycho.
The material was recorded, engineered, mixed and mastered in Hellspawn Studio by the frontman of the band - Mariusz Konieczny. The graphical layout of the album was designed by Michał Lis, who especially for the purpose of this album used William Blakes paintings.
Short commentary about the content of the album:
In the realm of extreme music there are some who stride towards maximum brutality, and there are some who stride towards technical perfection. There are also some, like Hellspawn, who do not care much about any of the above, and yet create death metal which does not lack anything and still has much more to offer.
The Great Red Dragon is a perfect example of why there should be no distinction between old and new schools of extreme metal, as it is an uncompromising album which cannot be dismissed under many labels. If youre a fan of Morbid Angel, Angel Corpse, Diabolic or Hate Eternal, the album is mandatory for you !!
ABORYM will enter the studio in October to record their sixth album, the follow-up to Psychogrotesque. The new album will be released in early 2013 through Agonia Records. Title, track-list, guests and tons of important details about the new release will be revealed soon.

Russian melodic ethno/death metallers SHTURM have released the music video for the track Eagles Above Tibet taken from their new album Karmaruna.
The band comment: The video's full of symbols and ideas, so its sense may be not very clear for you - we'll be happy to answer your questions!
The video's and song's ideas are different at first sight. The song itself tells us about how compassionate may be human's heart even after great ties of exile, wars and humiliation. It also tells us about how important is freedom for everyone of us all! The video consists of few scenes in which the wise Buddhist parables are shown. We suppose their sence may be quite urgent for many people today, so the video may appear interesting for you!

NAER MATARON has been and still remains a pure blooded Black Metal band, and as such, a non-political one. Any member of the band has the right to keep on to his personal beliefs and act accordingly. Therefore, any kind of legal political activity of any member, is a matter of personal choice and is respected as such.
Attempts to put NAER MATARON under any political agenda are rejected by the band.
In addition ,any false accusations against the band will come across with legal actions on our behalf.
The band stands only for Black Metal, and Black Metal is extreme music, not politics. Closing, anyone who is into the extreme music and thematology , but for any reason feels shocked or offended by non-extreme views and/or beliefs , is not of our concern.
