sludge doom metal, Memento Mori
A collection of all the songs (most of them available on CD format for the first time ever) included in their "...From Forgotten Tombs" (originally released on vinyl format in 2008) and "...From Forgotten Tombs II" (originally released on digital format in 2013) compilations on one disc, featuring the "Pleasures of War" EP (2004), a cover of Pentagram's "The Ghoul" and their side of the splits with Rue (2004), Sod Hauler (2005), Zoroaster (2009) and Unearthly Trance (2009). Adorned with an amazingly ominous artwork by Igor 'Abigor' Mugerza, "…From Forgotten Tombs I & II" display almost 70 minutes worth of gargantuan sheer heaviness and eerie aural landscapes from the undisputed U.S. masters of funeralized Doom/Sludge Metal with a Lovecraftian vibe. If the prospect of soul-crushing and utmost heavy Doom Metal suits your fancy, this anthology of Aldebaran's plodding opuses is an absolute necessity to drown in cosmic terror. Compilation of previous "...From Forgotten Tombs" compilations into a single CD format. Track 7 is a [a=Pentagram] cover.

The highly anticipated debut full-length of this French band. Hailing from the new breed of exquisite French Death Metal darkness, Atavisma formed in late 2013 and promptly set to work perfecting their assiduously doomed-out craft. Founders G. (guitar) and L. (vocals) wanted to create a band devoted to old school Death Metal, and with the addition of C. (drums) and W. (bass) shortly thereafter, the quartet's compositions progressively shifted towards a Death/Doom Metal approach with a penchant for lyrics that mainly deal with the relationship between man and nature, ancient cultures and spirituality. Wisely prizing quality over quantity, Atavisma's sparse discography comprises a debut single in 2014 and a four-song demo that same year, a split 7" with Maur in 2015, and a two-song 7" last year. During all this, the band took their craft to the stage alongside such bands as Archgoat, Merrimack, Inferno, Ritualization, Ataraxie, Mercyless and Mourning Dawn, and as recently as February/March 2017, they embarked on their first French tour and supported Blood Incantation and Cruciamentum during their European tour. With their chops finely honed in the studio and on the live front, at last comes the time for Atavisma's momentous debut album: "The Chthonic Rituals". The album's title not-so-subtly serves as a clarion call for the quartet's aesthetic to date, and where that aesthetic can fully go when given a long-form format. Ridiculously filthy and yet exuding a startling sense of clarity, Atavisma here conjure a forever-roiling, fatally-swirling whirlpool of murk and total 'n' utter darkness. Riffs are doled out like sick 'n' slithering creatures that soon overtake their master, devouring both body and soul with salacious delight. Thus armed, compositions take on obscene forms, utilizing both über-heavy hooks and labyrinthine detours, hackle-raising tension and hypnotic quasi-melodicism, winding the listener down caverns most foul, warping any sense of sanity. And although the band's attack has gotten progressively doomier, there's never a moment of inertia; all is forward momentum, and it all leads toward an abyss with literally no end. The 11-minute closer says everything in its title: "A Subterranean Life". Totality is reached in both cover art (courtesy of E. Muskie), mixing by Johan Bijaoui at Mannaz Records, and mastering by the elite Javier Felez at Moontower Studios. Maniacs of Incantation, Cianide, Grave, Disma, Winter, Funebre, Encoffination and classic Convulse, hereby meet your new masters: Atavisma. Let The Chthonic Rituals begin...

The jaw-dropping debut album by this French band. Hailing from Grenoble, Barús formed in 2015 and soon released their self-titled debut EP through Emanations (a division of Les Acteurs de l'Ombre Productions). Since mid-2016, work has been focused on their debut full-length album. Bearing the ominous title "Drowned", this is a bolt-from-the-blue work of unimaginable vision and towering might. Indeed, the term "βαρύς" evokes a weight, an overbearing burden. Through Barús, this takes musical form through a complex and utterly atmospheric -but, above all, completely and totally visceral- approach to Death Metal. Call it an alchemy of sorts, but "Drowned" presents a moltenly monolithic, ceaselessly churning sound merged with palpably progressive structures, frequently stretching into Black and Doom Metal territories -and effortlessly, at that- all compellingly completed by bowels-of-Hell deep vociferations and vocalizations spanning semi-clean moans, spoken word, chants and everything in between. Truly, it's a nightmare made flesh, its dissonance instilling an unshakable tension and terror, and yet Barús manage to make it sound so alluring, so tempting, to literally drown in the enormity they lay bare for the helpless listener. Drowned indeed! We don't usually dip our toes into "progressive" or "post" waters, favoring the musty odor of vintage Death Metal. However, when presented with Barús' "Drowned", we couldn't help but submit to their visionary onslaught on the senses. So, while we could describe them as "Autopsy reinterpreted by Meshuggah" or "Gojira and Gorguts jamming out to an old Demilich tune with Ulcerate's instruments," we're confident Barús should definitely appeal to fans of such daring bands as Gorguts, Triptykon, Ulcerate, Emptiness, Meshuggah, Portal, Diskord, Akercocke, Gojira, Sumac, Deathspell Omega, Altars and Chaos Echoes. Featuring 9 songs in a vast yet time-evaporating 56 minutes, the production on "Drowned" is absolutely stellar. It was recorded between 2016 and 2017 at Plastic Lobster Studios & Eptagon, with drum recording and additional reamping done at Octavox Studio, while mixing and mastering were done by James Leonard at Plastic Lobster Studios. Completed by cover art courtesy of the masterful Timo Ketola, with inner artwork by Stephen Wilson, Barús' "Drowned" is this year's dark-horse classic in the making!

A CD that compiles the body of work of this old, obscure Swiss Death Metal band. "The Complete Disgoregraphy 1991-2003" features the "The Persistence of Archaic Dogma..." demo (1991), the "In My Darkest Vision..." promo (1991), the "Hybridized Deformity" EP (1992), the "Docta Ignorantia" EP (1993) and the "The Second Side of the Coin..." demo (2003). To depict Damnatory's own brand of Death Metal ain't no simple task, for it encapsulates a number of different features and influences, namely the grinding brutality of early Pungent Stench, the fondness for intricacy of early Disharmonic Orchestra, the rawness and the filth of early Grave, and the uncanniness of Mangled Torsos, molding a Death Metal mongrel that bounces back and forth from sick tremolo-picked riffs, to thrashy headbanging sections and to slow, doomish passages. The casket has yet again been opened for all zealots of the early 90's undeground Death Metal to inhale the odor of the lifeless ones! All songs restored and mastered by Patrick Engel (of Hatespawn fame) at Temple of Disharmony, Germany. Artwork and layout by Marco Gemmet, the band's vocalist on the 1992 EP and the 2003 demo.

death thrash metal, Memento Mori
The sophomore full-length album of the cult U.S. band Dead Conspiracy. Formed in 1986, Dead Conspiracy is to this day considered by many as a pioneer and influence to Death/Gore Metal bands worldwide. Originally released on vinyl, tape and digital in November 2016, "Dead Conspiracy" features 9 tracks of the band's trademark Thrash Metal-edged, Punk-infused, evil-minded, vicious and unadulterated savagery that should definitely appeal to fans of other primal and unrefined Death Metal acts that helped shape the genre in the 80's, such as Nunslaughter, Necrophagia, Mantas/Death, Master, Incubus, Possessed, Deceased, Autopsy/Abscess, Terminal Death, Massacre, Exmortis, Repulsion, Slaughter, N.M.E... The vocals drip with devilish flare, the bass is clear and punchy, guitars are treble and sound like scythes, and drums sound like they were recorded on a low-budget in the best way. There are no tricks here, just raw skill and Metal. "Dead Conspiracy" is a powerful album, even after many repeated listens. It displays everything you need old school Death Metal to display: bone-crunching riffs, pounding breakdowns and speed delivered with anger, atmosphere and energy by a band that’s riddled with acrimonious motivation and a burning passion for the genre. So dig up your favorite cadaver to sit with while you get kick your ears kicked in, for the deadliest have now returned!!!

Formed in 2013, Deprive is the brainchild of a hyperactive veteran of the Spanish scene that goes under the nickname of Erun Dagoth, current/past member of a large number of bands and projects such as Briargh, Hrizg, Stormstone, CrystalMoors, Eldereon and Omendark, just to name a few. Drawing his influences from the early offerings of bands such as Paradise Lost, Hypocrisy, Morbid Angel, Abhorrence/Amorphis, Incantation, My Dying Bride and Bolt Thrower, Erun Dagoth manages to display a vast array of resources that makes his music gloomy yet luminous, crushing yet emotional, capturing the very essence of the old-flavoured, early and mid 90's Death Metal that used to toy with slower, doom-ish tempos to enhance the atmosphere. Produced in its entirety (music, sound, artwork and layout) by Erun Dagoth himself, and featuring the terrific “De Vermis Mysteriis” demo (2013) as bonus tracks, “Into Oblivion” is not just a fantastic debut full-length album by a promising act, but the solid statement of a mature artist reaching his new peak of creativity. Tracks 11-14 taken from the “De Vermis Mysteriis” demo (2013).

One year after unleashing a promising debut full-length, Deprive is back with a sophomore album that strengthens all the attributes displayed on the critically acclaimed "Into Oblivion", only supplied with an even danker and more organic production that absolutely sets it apart from the current, plastic standards and will carry the listener back to a time when no digital tricks would spoil the soul of Death Metal. Formed in 2013, Deprive is the brainchild of a hyperactive veteran of the Spanish scene that goes under the nickname of Erun Dagoth, current/past member of a large number of bands and projects such as Briargh, Hrizg, Stormstone, CrystalMoors, Eldereon and Omendark, just to name a few. Drawing his influences from the early offerings of bands such as Paradise Lost, Hypocrisy, Morbid Angel, Amorphis, Incantation, My Dying Bride, Cemetary and Bolt Thrower, Erun Dagoth manages once again to display a vast array of resources that makes his music gloomy yet luminous, crushing yet emotional, capturing the very essence of the old-flavored, early and mid 90's Death Metal that used to toy with slower, doom-ish tempos to enhance the atmosphere. Produced in its entirety by Erun Dagoth himself, except for the artwork (handled by the talented Spanish artist Enserune), "Temple of the Lost Wisdom" is not just a great follow-up to "Into Oblivion", but a truly remarkable album that perfectly and honestly captures the vibes of yore, keeping them somewhat fresh and relevant for all true Death Metal fans to rejoice in.

The atrocious debut full-length by this U.S. based band. Filtheater began back in 2010 when founder and sole member K.J.'s bands dissipated. This led to the exploration of the abysmal, primal, stripped-down Death Metal that he had worshiped as a teen, spewed forth by bands such as Incantation, Phlegm, Grave, Entety, Rottrevore, Baphomet, Autopsy, Nuclear Death, Embalmer, Goreaphobia and Corpus Rottus. Unable to find like-minded musicians in Mississippi, K.J. went on to write and perform all aspects of the music, releasing several EP's over the next three years. Then in 2018, three like-minded maniacs (C.E., R.S. and A.W.) were added to the lineup in order to fully flesh out the band's ancient and primitive sound, and keep the utter disgust going. And indeed, utter disgust is all you'll find on Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction! Aptly titled, Filtheater's debut album unleashes undulating waves of filth and foulness, an unyielding and cruel cascade of garbage and grime that simply refuses to be washed off. Raw and eldritch is their Death Metal, with no "modern" seasonings/neuterings: simply, lurch 'n' crunch with palpitating plunges into blastbeaten speed. Death Metal for Death Metal maniacs, no more but certainly no less. Prepare to be crushed under the weight of filthy and dismal Mississippi Death Metal! With fittingly foul cover art by Mörtuus and disgusting mastering by Dan Lowndes, Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction is guaranteed to live up to its title, and then some!

For the first time ever on CD format, here comes an official reissue of the obscure and solitary demo of the old Spanish band Fossor, originally released on tape back in 1994. Fossor first burst into the Spanish underground Death Metal scene back in August 1993, in the small northern town of Logroño. It came into being as a spin-off from the first two Aposento line-ups, another legendary then Spanish band and local pioneers of the genre. Their music approach was logically rooted in the soundings of the genuine and still effervescing international Death Metal scene, taking their cues from the ancient Florida sound (Obituary, Massacre and most specifically "Leprosy" and "Spiritual Healing" era Death) and the European tradition of bands such as Benediction, Entombed, Asphyx, Grave and Gorefest. Despite the lack of a proper distribution and promotion, "Emerging from the Abyss" would end up gaining some recognition within the underground domestic ranks and also positive reviews in places remote as Asia and other European countries, including the insertion of the song "The Bastard Son of God" on the 1995 compilation "Sometimes... Death is Better II" put out by the Belgian label Shiver Records. A truly unmissable gem of the 90's underground and happily exhumed at last, this very special reissue of "Emerging from the Abyss" was mastered by Dan Lowndes (of Cruciamentum fame) at his own Resonance Sound Studio in the U.K., and features brand new artwork by Raul Fuentes (a.k.a. Mortuus) as well as a fully detailed bio-interview conducted and compiled by David Bleak (Bleak 'zine).

Featuring a jaw-dropping artwork and layout by the talented artist Cesar Valladares, and guest vocals by Johan Jansson (Interment, Regurgitate, Uncanny, ex-Centinex, ex-Demonical, ex-Fulmination, ex-Uncurbed…) on two songs, ”Desecrating Obscurity” is the first yet solid step of a band that will definitely find their own place in the current Death Metal underground scene very soon.

The stunning debut full-length by this Australian band. Hailing from Sydney, Horrisonous formed in late 2015 and comprise a handful of hardened members of the local underground scene, including past or current members of such acts as Temple Nightside, Backyard Mortuary, The Slow Death, Illimitable Dolor and Pestilential Shadows among others. Not surprisingly, Horrisonous deliver aural slime, decay and misery by means of the ageless brand of Death Metal that's equally ponderous, crushing and fervent, enhanced with slithering tempos and influenced by the likes of Bolt Thrower, Asphyx, Autopsy, Death, early Paradise Lost, Celtic Frost, Carcass, Dismember and Incantation. They proved it on their debut EP, "The Plague Doctors", in 2016 and they proved it with the Asphyx and Celtic Frost covers comprising the follow-up "The Plague Doctors B-sides" EP two years later, and they fully prove it with their debut full-length, "A Culinary Cacophony". A cursory glance at some of the album's song titles ("Crispy Chunks of the Obese", "Nourishment Through Excrement", "Number of the Feast"...) and one could potentially assume Horrisonous are a hokey gore band. While their noses are no doubt in tune with life's foulest recesses, Horrisonous are deadly serious about their juggernauting Death Metal. Requisitely filthy as any Memento Mori release, "A Culinary Cacophony" digs deeply into the doom and serves up serious helpings of up-tempo gallop and blast. It's a world-eating sound that evokes a creepiness quite at odds with such otherwise tongue-in-cheek titles, but only Horrisonous know the methods to their madness... Brazenly adorned with garishly gruesome cover art courtesy of Rod Scott, Horrisonous offer a symphony of sickness with "A Culinary Cacophony"!

The debut full-length of Chile's INFAMOVS, "Under the Seals of Death". Hailing from the city of Coquimbo, the band was formed in late 2014 by drummer A.M (ex-Predator), guitar players S.D and C.H, and F.U on vocal duties. This line-up recorded the "Emanation of Impure Heresies" EP that was released through LMDT Records in October 2015. Later on, C.H left the band and was replaced by R.B (Swarm of Terror). With the addition of F.G (Swarm of Terror) on bass, the band recently recorded their debut full-length album, titled "Under the Seals of Death". Drawing their lyrical and conceptual inspiration from the occult, ancient deities and indigenous culture and history, Infamovs pay homage to the deeds and knowledge of yesteryear through a brand of Death Metal that's heinous, ruthless, sullen and primitive, influenced by acts such as Incantation, Dominus Xul, Dead Congregation, Imprecation, Immolation, Sadistic Intent, early Deicide and early Morbid Angel. However, it is the band's thirsty 'n' miserable execution which sets "Under the Seals of Death" as a breed apart. Every gnarled, gangrenous riff and rhythm burls forward with an irrational sense of possession, as if the players' very lives are depending on it. Through this foul, gooey haze, a slimy-yet-sinuous songwriting emerges, marrying ably contorted linearity to tangibly, disgustingly physical forward momentum. It sounds and smells and feels like DEATH, rotting deeper in a pool of its own forlorn fluid. From this, Infamovs emerge: South American madness has a new name.

In our endless quest to push and support current underground acts that perpetuate the odor of vintage Death Metal, Memento Mori summons yet another ponderous beast from the crypts and unleashes it upon mankind: the debut album of Poland's Martyrdoom, "Grievous Psychosis". Conceived in Warsaw back in 2010, the band went through some lineup changes until they established a solid formation in 2014, including Sociak (vocals), Marol (guitar), Młynar (guitar / vocals), Artz (bass) and Wasyl (drums). Blending complex, blast-beat driven, darkened Death Metal with slow Doom passages, the band draws its main influences from the likes of Obituary, Immolation, Rippikoulu, Autopsy, Demilich, Triptykon, Cannibal Corpse, Incantation, Hooded Menace, Grave, Disma and Dead Congregation, but they spew all those influences out with renewed vigor. As far as non-musical inspirations go, their lyrics mostly revolve about old school horror/gore movies, personal struggles and the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Bloodthirsty and dripping with menace, these Poles armed with a thorough knowledge of ancient Death Metal create something vile and unearthly. Eschewing all trends, Martyrdoom trudge defiantly, blasting their noxious blend of Death Metal and Doom Metal music, urging cohorts to surrender to them at once. Eight tracks of visceral mayhem are channelled through what sounds like cavernous labyrinths and are as unrelenting as they are haunting. "Grievous Psychosis" is the sound of demons in your head coming back to take control of what was always theirs. Cover art by Ryszard Wojtyński ("Hell", 1986).

The highly anticipated debut album by this upcoming Mexican band. Morbid Messiah was formed in 2015 after Anubis Sandoval (drums) moved from Cancun to Guadalajara, and teamed up with Roberto Trejo (guitar) and Jose Rivas (vocals). All three young musicians shared a burning passion for the authentic sound of underground death metal that blossomed during the late 80's and early 90's, and felt compelled to give shape to a brand-new, iniquitous entity that would follow in the gods of yore's footsteps. Morbid Messiah played their first live show a few months later and then proceeded to record their debut EP, suitably titled "In the Name of True Death Metal", which was self-released in October 2016 on CD format. Guillermo Lopez (bass) had already joined their ranks by then, solidifying the lineup for depraved endeavors yet to come. Fast forward to April 2017 and the Polish label Godz ov War Productions gave the EP the tape treatment, and all 100 copies sold out shortly after. To depict Morbid Messiah's approach to the Metal of Death is no laborious chore, for it is nothing more -but certainly nothing less- than a dank, impenetrable, lightless, decimating and unadorned concoction of the finest, heaviest and vilest elements of bands such as Sadistic Intent, Possessed, Incantation, Grotesque, Mortem, Death and Imprecation, as well as those prevalent in the early works of their countrymates Cenotaph and Shub Niggurath. Thus girded with such proud and powerful influences, "Demoniac Paroxysm" thus invokes its very title, whipping the listener into a fury of rotten, sewer-dwelling possession. Rubbed raw and blasted about like a boombox from the bowels of Hell, this is DEATH METAL in all caps, and forever be it so: Morbid Messiah are not recommended for trendy ears nor those with weak stomachs. But if the flame burns true within you, by all means, take this torch now! Naturally, for a record so foul and filthy, it's only fitting that "Demoniac Paroxysm" is gracelessly graced with classic cover artwork courtesy of the esteemed Mark Riddick. Bow down and pray to Morbid Messiah!

The astonishing debut full-length from this U.S. band. Hailing from Portland, Petrification formed in 2014 out of their love of old school Swedish, British and particularly Finnish Death Metal, wanting to create music that while an homage to its roots, allowed its members to find their own unique voice in Extreme Metal. Drawn to the evil and doom-laden soundscapes of the Finnish masters, Petrification set out to meticulously craft their own vision in the writing of the early 2017 demo, "Summon Horrendous Destruction". And it's now, only a few months later, that Petrification set the bar even higher in terms of heaviness and somber ambience with the release of their debut album, "Hollow of the Void", a devastating opus that lyrically and sonically musters the band's morbid visions of horror, demise and mephitic decay through 11 tracks of utterly gut-churning Death Metal that traps the listener in a nightmare of festering pustules that nobody can't crawl out of. Fans of Convulse, Demigod, Grave, Dismember, Rippikoulu, Carcass, Bolt Thrower, Adramelech, Sorcery, Unleashed, Depravity, Entombed, Catacomb, God Macabre or even newer masters of the olden tradition, such as Disma and Funebrarum, will certainly find a new favorite in "Hollow of the Void". Featuring some deliciously macabre artwork and layout by Jason Barnett, the band's vocalist, and mastered by Dan Lowndes (of Cruciamentum fame) at his own Resonance Sound Studio in the U.K., "Hollow of the Void" marks the unstoppable ascent of a new force to be reckoned with in underground Death Metal.

The loathsome debut full-length from this Greek band. Hailing from Athens, Pile of Excrements was crapped into existence when drummer Shit Eater (Necrovorous, Embrace of Thorns, Chainsaw) joined forces with guitar/bass-player and vocalist Necropervert (Nightbreed, Chainsaw) with the vile intention of delighting the listener with the aural equivalent of the nauseating stench of one hundred drains clogged with foul-smelling turds and urine. And as the title of their debut album promises, "Escatology" is exactly that! Pile of Excrements began clogging sewers last year with the Demo 2016 tape. In no uncertain terms, the duo laid bare their divinely depraved musical influences -Autopsy/Abscess, Pungent Stench, Master, Impetigo, Blood, Necrophagia, Mantas/Death, Carcass, Cianide, Massacre and Hellhammer- and completed it with a compulsive obsession with slasher/gore B-movies, shit of all kinds and high-cholesterol food. But, that demo was but a mere appetizer for the filthy feast to follow in "Escatology"! From the very first second "Bowel Rampage" shits itself into existence, it's crystal-clear these refined and suave Greek gentlemen are all about the FILTH in capital -and gushing- letters. From there, the foulness just starts flowing, one rough and rancorous rush after another. Indeed, Pile of Excrements pile high the punk-rocking hooks so crucial to early Death Metal -that is, the original template laid out by the aforementioned masters- and keep the crush coming. It's 15 almost-anthems in a tight and taut 40 minutes, but it's not all short/sharp/shocked: on the six-minute "Cult of the Unibrow", the duo go relatively epic whilst keeping the emphasis on the filth... where it should be! Featuring fittingly gross cover art by Raul Fuentes (a.k.a. Mortuus) and mastering by Cruciamentum's Dan Lowndes, Pile of Excrements make "Escatology" a masterclass in musical depravity!

The striking debut full-length by this Mexican band. Hailing from the vast Death Metal hotbed of Mexico, Ravenous Death feature current members of such other bands as Remains, Demonic Manifestation and Death's Forsaken. The band's embryo was brought forth in 2016 during the recording of Remains' third album in Mexico City, when vocalist/guitar player Miguel Angel and drummer Esteban Salcedo toyed with the idea of creating a Death Metal band influenced by Vomitory, Torture Division and the likes. Later on, both musicians shared their vision with lead guitarist Enrique Fray, and the three of them agreed to push the idea forward and carry it out as a side-project due to the commitments they all had with their main bands. Soon after, Enrique and Miguel Angel began writing songs for the newborn abomination, and the three members decided to name the band after a Vomitory song titled "The Ravenous Dead". Fast forward to October 2016, and the recording of Ravenous Death's debut demo/EP, "Ominous Deathcult", is finalized (although not released as a Bandcamp download until March 2017), including 5 songs chock full of rotting maliciousness that show great poise in combining blasting brutality, crushing heaviness, somber ambience and fierce intensity, with the lyrical themes revolving about death, occultism, blasphemy and other classic topics of the olden Metal of Death. On May 13th, 2017, the band make their first live performance in the city of Guadalajara. For this occasion two new members were recruited -namely, bass player Alejandro Mendez and guitarist Diego Gomez- leaving Miguel Angel on vocal duties alone. After the excellent crowd response, both Alejandro and Diego join the band as official members. Emboldened by this patient momentum, at last arrives Ravenous Death's full-length debut, aptly titled "Chapters of an Evil Transition". Indeed displaying the band's transition into an evil Death Metal juggernaut, the album absolutely bleeds the molten-yet-mildewed essence of 90's Metal of Death. Fucking fashion and trends and especially fickle tastes, "Chapters of an Evil Transition" is a gutsfucking time-warp to the days when Death Metal was supposedly "dead", lost in favor of Black Metal, Power Metal or (worse) ill-fated sellout fantasies. In this landscape did many a raw and righteous mini-classic get birthed, and suitably do Ravenous Death continue the proud legacy of Vomitory and Mexican forebears Shub Niggurath, but also especially Sadistic Intent, Seance, old Grave, 90's Immolation, 90's Vader and Finland's Demigod. No more but definitely no less, this is Death Metal by and for Death Metal maniacs: no bullshit and no sellout! Completed by stark artwork courtesy of Mörtuus and mastering by the esteemed Javier Felez at Moontower Studios, allow Ravenous Death to read you "Chapters of an Evil Transition"!

The long-awaited debut full-length from this Romanian putrid ensemble. Rotheads was formed in Bucharest back in 2014 as an old-school Death Metal side-project to the experimental Doom/Noise/Stoner-improv band Keeng Ra'at; both bands contained the same three members. By 2015, five songs were written, and recordings began in December of that year. Ultimately, six songs (plus intro and outro) came out in April 2016 as the "Unfazed by Death" demo, which turned out to be a remarkable, sick trip into the bowels of murky and foul-smelling Death Metal. In the meantime, another guitarist joined the band, and the original bassist left and rejoined later on. The original drummer and vocalist also left the band in August, and another drummer has since joined, while the vocals are now handled by the original guitarist. Rotheads have played only a few times live, the most memorable being two gigs around Romania with the legendary Sadistic Intent. "Aptly fucking titled" is an understatement when it comes to "Sewer Fiends". Here, Rotheads take their aggregate influences -particularly from the classic early 90's Finnish scene (Abhorrence, early Sentenced, Demigod, Depravity), as well as other timeless crypt dwellers such as Autopsy, Incantation, Carnage, Accidental Suicide, Grave and Asphyx- and proceed to create a mesmerizingly murky 'n' moody work with their debut album. The sewage is piled high and plentifully, as foul 'n' fetid riffs flow fast and freely, but always with a clearly discernible direction; after all, Rotheads are firmly grounded in the timeless songwriting style of old school Death Metal, where feeling and texture are paramount over technique and other flashy wank. And those riffs continue to roll ever forward, malevolently and majestically, just like a (filth-strewn) tank. And yet, amidst all this crunch and carnage lay a layering of eerie melody atop, evoking fresh crypts opening slowly or the tension of wandering further into tomb-like sewers. Indeed, Rotheads are as aptly named as their album is titled, and we dare you to emerge from their moldy embrace completely clean... There's just no way to wash off this horror! As an appetizer, just stare deeply into Cesar Valladares' cryptic cover art. And, with mixing and mastering courtesy of Javier Felez at Moontower Studios, it's all but guaranteed that Rotheads' "Sewer Fiends" will be one of the best (if not THE BEST) Death Metal debuts of the year!

The long-awaited debut full-length of this U.S. band. Not much is known about the anonymous aural torturers known as Ruin. The small amount of information that we do know is that the band was formed back in 1991, somewhere in the United States. Due to various members of the band being incarcerated and institutionalized, Ruin was disbanded at some point later that year. Rumors have also swirled that the band members were/are part of some sort of cult. Now free from any obstacles, the Ruin Death Metal machine was re-started again in 2015, and work began in earnest for what was to become their debut album (at last!), "Drown in Blood". With roots firmly planted in utter and complete musical devastation, Ruin's sonic debauchery is mean, vicious, spiteful, raucous, and sickening Death Metal. Shit-heavy and strewn with shit, their long-brewing "Drown in Blood" is pure and utter ugliness enriched with doomed-out passages, crusty tempos, and sudden blasts that are meant to turn your stomach without care. Vile and viscous, filthy and foul, the influences seem to come from some sort of bastard child spawned from Hellhammer covers being slammed out by Realm of Chaos-era Bolt Thrower taking place in the jam room of Finnish sickos Abhorrence in 1989: that's how heavy and crushing their stuff is, offering no remorse and no escape for the helpless/hapless listener. That's how you Drown in Blood, y'know? If you're a fan of putrid old school Death Metal and the aforementioned bands as well as Sweden's Crematory, Rottrevore, Undergang, Demigod, Rippikoulu, Autopsy and Cianide, then you will put Ruin in the same puke-infested bucket. Memento Mori unleashes "Drown in Blood" on CD format, and toilets the world over will cower in fear! Mastered by Ted Tringo at The Ancient Way Mastering (U.S.A.). Cover art and layout by César Valladares.

death metal, Memento Mori
The long-awaited second album of America's Ruin. Not much is known about the anonymous aural torturers known as Ruin. At least, that was the case a couple years ago, before the band's rebirth. The small amount of information that we did know was that the band was formed back in 1991, somewhere in the United States. Due to various members of the band being incarcerated and institutionalized, Ruin was disbanded at some point later that year. Rumors have also swirled that the band members were/are part of some sort of cult. Now free from any obstacles, the Ruin Death Metal machine was re-started again in 2015, and work began in earnest for what was to become their debut album, "Drown in Blood". Released last year by us to worldwide critical acclaim, Ruin's "Drown in Blood" was everything that everyone had been waiting for, and then some: mean, vicious, spiteful, raucous and sickening Death Metal. Sonic debauchery is what you wanted? Sonic debauchery is what you got! Alas, Ruin strike while the iron's red-hot and deliver another foul cauldron of filth with "Human Annihilation". Shit-heavy and strewn with shit, "Human Annihilation" picks up exactly where their "Drown in Blood" ended, and delivers pure and utter ugliness enriched with doomed-out passages, crusty tempos and sudden blasts that are meant to turn your stomach without care. And yet, compared to its predecessor, "Human Annihilation" goes even deeper into the creepiness; its soundfield is still vile and viscous, but there's an even-more-pronounced lurking dread haunting their no-less-heavy ruminations. If "Drown in Blood" was some sort of bastard child spawned from Hellhammer covers being slammed out by "Realm of Chaos"-era Bolt Thrower taking place in the jam room of Finnish sickos Abhorrence in 1989, then "Human Annihilation" is the beyond-drunk and drugged-out aftermath, where there's simply no escape from the disease-ridden basement. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. Well, this time, Ruin weren't gone very long for us to feel any warm feelings for them, and so they deliver the more sickening and hateful "Human Annihilation". Cover art by Caleb Dickenson (Cosmic Void Dark Art) and mastering by Ted Tringo, so you know this one's gonna rot your soul with Ruin!

death doom metal, Memento Mori
The jaw-dropping debut album from this U.S. band. Formed back in 2008 as Tenspeed Warlock, Shrine of the Serpent have been going under their current moniker since 2014. Comprised of past and current members of Aldebaran, Graves At Sea, Sod Hauler and Roanoke among others, this three-headed leviathan from Portland, Oregon conjure up visions of utmost ominousness and malodorous dreariness as a celebration of the inevitable, when life ceases to be and there's nothing but a palpable somberness shrouding your passing to the other, unfathomable side. The chosen guide for such a cryptic journey is über-heavy, gloomy and miserable Death/Doom Metal. When faced with such a fate, one can only help to prepare to be crushed under the weight of utterly monolithic riffs enhanced by tortured growls, ritualistically pounding drumming and eerie-as-fuck harmonies. Ultimately, this is but the sound of "Entropic Disillusion". Although more fertile now than any time in the past, true Death/Doom Metal is still a field that's tricky to plow: lumber too long and you arrive at boredom; spice up the formula and you lose the necessary desolation. Shrine of the Serpent exhibit mastery of the form on "Entropic Disillusion". Truly and unapologetically Death/Doom Metal to the bitter end, their slowly swirling sound patiently takes its time to entrance and then suffocate the listener, but it sure is fatal, not to mention absurdly heavy, in the most smothering way possible. Dismiss any hope for sentimental melodies, gothic overtones or operatic female voices, for the sole endeavor here is to oppress the listener. Fans of the bleakest approach to the subgenre who hail such bands as early Paradise Lost, Winter, Dusk, Hooded Menace, diSEMBOWELMENT, Loss, Druid Lord and early Cathedral will definitely find plenty of morbid joy from experiencing this concoction of impending death and doom. Completed by Mariusz Lewandowski's ethereal cover art and a crushing mastering job courtesy of Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering, "Entropic Disillusion" announces the arrival of Death/Doom Metal's newest titans: Shrine of the Serpent!

Official reissue of the solitary album from this Dutch ensemble, originally released in 1993, featuring the "Symphony of indictment" demo (1992) as bonus tracks. This highly underrated and hideous gem from the old Dutch underground is a monument of gloomy, rotting, dense and downtuned music from a band that doesn’t waste any time on faint melodies but instead works to insinuate deafening sounds of Doom with the heaviness and aura of Death Metal in a way that will absolutely be revered by fans of bands such as Winter, Mythic, Ceremonium, Asphyx, Dusk, Sempiternal Deathreign, Symphony Of Grief, Autopsy, diSEMBOWELMENT, Rippikoulu, Castle and Eternal Darkness. All in all, "Ziyadah" has a strange yet fascinating appeal to it that will keep you re-visiting it over and over again for years and years to come. Tracks 11-14 are from "Symphony of Indictment" demo released in 1992. All songs by Spina Bifida. Recorded October 1992 at Tapes Productions, Raamsdonksveer, The Netherlands.

The outstanding debut full-length from this up and coming German band. Formed back in early 2014 by seasoned devotees of the German underground (featuring past and present members of bands such as Beyond and Nocturnal), this three-headed beast spreads an aural plague in the form of primal, decayed, malevolent, venomous, eerie and crawling Death/Doom Metal with extremely rotten vocals that sound like desperate yells being vomited forth, and a gloomy atmosphere that reeks of mouldy crypts, nocturnal fears and god-forsaken places, very much influenced by ancient entities such as Goatlord, Delirium, Hellhammer, Necro Schizma, Winter, early Asphyx and Autopsy. Finished up with a solid mastering work (courtesy of Ted Tringo at The Ancient Way Mastering, U.S.A.) that enhances the morbidity of their sound, and the bleak artwork crafted by the German artist known as Misanthropic Art, "Perpetual Blackness" is an unquestionable tribute to all things uncanny and putrescent.

The staggering debut full-length by this Australian band. Oozing out of Melbourne, Vile Apparition is a new project of Oliver Ballantyne (drums) and Jamie Colic (guitar, bass, vocals), both ex-members of the mighty Sewercide that left shortly after the recording of that band's debut album, "Immortalized in Suffering", in order to pursue other endeavors. Vile Apparition's self-released debut 4-song demo, "Atrocious Captivity", was picked up for a cassette release in early 2018 on Transylvanian Tapes, just in time for the band to fill their live lineup for their first run of shows starting January 2018. Alas, "Atrocious Captivity" was but a brief taste of the nastiness to come, now in the form of Vile Apparition's full-length debut, "Depravity Ordained". No lies in that title: this is fetid and filthy Death Metal that puts a premium on the bludgeon! Old school as it comes, of course, Vile Apparition's no-frills approach hearkens to the likes of Morpheus Descends, Ripping Corpse and Deteriorot, as well as the early works of Suffocation, Deeds of Flesh and Cryptopsy. An astounding exhibition of ridiculous, malignant heaviness that'll drill a hole in your skull and blow your brain cells to smithereens, the album also includes the preceding demo as bonus tracks. With suitably classic cover art courtesy of Chaostouched and mastering by Dan Lowndes at Resonance Sound Studio, Vile Apparition bring you blunt-force trauma with "Depravity Ordained"!

death metal, Memento Mori
The highly anticipated debut full-length from this Greek squad. Hailing from the Black and Death Metal hotbed of Greece, War Possession indeed features a number of scene veterans within their ranks, including current and past members of such bands as Embrace of Thorns, Merciless Crucifixion and Wargoat. Since the band's beginnings in 2008, they've been possessed by an unwavering desire to craft and perform punishing, war-themed Death Metal impervious to trends and modern standards, combining corpulent, ominously slow riffs with blasting brutality soaked in a blackened ambience. References to be made are the olden endeavors of Bolt Thrower, Demigod, Treblinka/Tiamat, Incantation, Therion, Archgoat, Imprecation and Asphyx. But while they've quietly made an impression across a demo, split and EP, at long last, War Possession reveals its most devastating assault in "Doomed to Chaos". Totaling 10 tracks in a lean and mean 40 minutes, "Doomed to Chaos" begins its slow lurch into undead life with an ominous intro, setting the stage for the audial apocalypse to come. War-torn atmosphere established, War Possession soon kick into caustic and crunch gear with a proud and powerful pulse not unlike a Panzer tank. No more and certainly no less, the band evince totally pure, unapologetically untarnished Death Metal songwriting that finds the right balance between linear and labyrinthine. Engaging the listener (and enemy!) at every decimated turn, the sonic canvas of "Doomed to Chaos" soon becomes a battlefield, as each song plays out the stark drama so endemic to war. Or, if you simply listen and prepare to be flattened, never giving a thought to their thematics, War Possession lurch and lunge in a most classic way, even down to the early 90's-style production (with mastering by The Crypt's Ted Tringo). Completed by equally classic, era-accurate artwork by Fendieart, "Doomed to Chaos" is diehard Death Metal for Death Metal diehards - for victory!
