Swedish Death Metal Duo TEMISTO will release its debut album on Pulverised Records February 26, 2016.  New track Above Sacred Ground is streaming at this location.

TEMISTO’s debut is the perfect mix of blasphemy and violence. Death Metal with bursts of intricate maze-like passages executed with razor-sharp precision, TEMISTO exudes a zeal for the obscure and unworldly. Formed recently in Stockholm, Sweden, TEMISTO consists of only two members: Leo Ekström Sollenmo and Sebastian Lindbom Gunnari.

The album was produced and engineered by ex-Morbus Chron frontman Robert Andersson with Elias Scharmer (ex-Abduction, ex-Mutilate) and then painstakingly mastered at Necromorbus Studio by Tore Stjerna (Watain, Desultory, Repugnant, etc). Also featuring the gracefully morbid artwork of Obsessed By Cruelty (Enforcer, Sabbat, Wolfbrigade, etc).


Track List:

1. Above Sacred Ground
2. Descent Into Madness
3. Abyssal Depths
4. Medusa
5. The Ritual
6. Succubus
7. Demiurge
8. Bestial Visions
9. Temple Of The Damned
10. Seance

Leo was previously the frontman of a Death Metal act called Whore, releasing a demo-tape back in 2011. Whore split up around the same time and shortly after; Leo, Sebastian and two other guys formed what would later become Temisto. They recorded a two-track demo back in 2013 but eventually decided not to release it officially. By late 2014, the band realized that they had enough material for a full length album and a good opportunity to record it in a studio with Robert and Elias and so they recorded it all during two weeks in February / March of 2015.

Ravens Creed - Ravens Krieg - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #MO33499MDF

RAVENS CREED (UK) – ‘Ravens Krieg’

Genre – Crusty Death Metal

Release Date – October 1st, 2015

Record Label – Xtreem Music

Shit, this is good. Xtreem Music is at it again. Crusty Death Metal the way you like it. Formed originally by members of Cerebral Fix, Sabbat, Orange Goblin among others, Ravens Creed from the UK are whipping up a concoction of crusty Death Metal that’s hard to come by these days.

There’s the classic vibe channelled through the glass shards-encrusted and Thrash Metal-spiked Death Metal music that’s just extremely virulent and nasty in its final output. This here is an abrasive mass of Crust/Death/Thrash music that destroys any structure standing. The heaviness is palpable while the unique tone will make your skin peel backwards. This is the second and most potent full length of the band yet and it will rip your face right off and scrub what’s left with acid.


Album Line-Up:

Rod Boston – Bass

Jay Graham – Drums

Steve Watson – Guitars

Al Osta – Vocals

UNDER THE CHURCH’s “Rabid Armageddon” Out Now On Pulverised Records

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on November 9, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Under The Church - Rabid Armageddon - promo cover pic - 2015 - #MOSNSM77733

Rabid Armageddon from old school Swedish/Icelandic Death Metallers UNDER THE CHURCH (feat. former members of NIRVANA 2002), is out now on Pulverised Records.

CD orders:

Digital orders/album stream:

Be forewarned, the vultures are circling around this grim chapel – the Swedish old guard UNDER THE CHURCH have unearthed the latest sepulture Rabid Armageddon. Once featured as FENRIZ’s Band of the Week, UNDER THE CHURCH have truly stepped it up a notch with remarkably catchy hooks and their already recognizable corpse-decaying Death Metal stench! Rabid Armageddon is proof once again that crass-ridden and obscene Swedish Death Metal is still a winning formula and shall eternally reign supreme. Artwork and layout by Mattias Frisk (Ghost, Vanhelgd, Entrapment, Vampire, etc).


Rabid Armageddon – Track Listing:

  1. Sodomy and Blasphemy
  2. Rabid Armageddon
  3. Triad ov Inquisitors
  4. Magus
  5. Suspended in Gore
  6. Walpurgis Night
  7. Mangled to a Bloody Mess
  8. Penance
  9. The Trail of Cthulu


Critical Praise:

“It’s so nice to find a band still early in their discography who consistently kill it with each new release, especially when their weapon of choice is raw, unrepentant, bestial death metal of the old school.” – No Clean Singing

“Putrid and ferocious death metal in the vein of old gods like Grave, Entombed, Unleashed, etc.” – Zombie Ritual Fanzine

Under The Church… Death Metal… pure and simple.

Born of the base desire to create raw and pure Death Metal, Erik Qvick and Lars Henriksson formed the band during 2012, after the final rites were administered to the reanimated corpse that was Nirvana 2002. Inspired, a series of tunes were crafted, labored and recorded. After a vocalist search, UNDER THE CHURCH settled on Australian vocalist MiK Annetts, to give voice to the primal compositions that had been conjured. The end result was ‘Demo 2013’; a three song affair that created a surge of interest in the band and their raw, filthy and ugly approach to the essence of Death Metal. Following their seven-track self-titled debut EP on Pulverised, UNDER THE CHURCH are primed and have released a firestorm of raw and bestial Death Metal called Rabid Armageddon.

SINISTER “Dark Memorials” – A Metal Odyssey Album Review

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, rock music with tags , , , , , on October 7, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Sinister - Dark Memorials - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #33MMNSS24

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!


European Death Metal warriors, SINISTER, have released their new studio album of cover songs, Dark Memorials, this past Summer via Massacre Records. Man, this offering of Death Metal from SINISTER is a dandy! In all Metal honesty, I already have Dark Memorials reserved for a spot in Metal Odyssey’s Top Ten Metal Albums Of 2015 list. Dark Memorials destroys! There are tons of Thrash(ness) on this album to satisfy fans of the old-school style, while the raging Death Metal is nothing short of stunning. Seriously, my Metal brethren!

The cover of the Carcass classic Exhume To Consume is breathtaking, even with some flashy keyboards making a brief appearance. Yes, keyboards. From Bolt Thrower to Autopsy, with Kreator and Death in-between, this is a cover song album to hunger for! SINISTER have given these Metal classics all the Metal respect they so importantly deserve. Hell, there’s no better way to give thanks and praise to such legends of Metal, as SINISTER has done on Dark Memorials.

Adrie Kloosterwaard on vocals is a Death Metal monster! Shit, what more can be said. The entire band gets my seal of Death Metal approval for their ear blistering performance on this Dark Memorials album. I have listened to Dark Memorials constantly since September and I’m never gonna stop recommending this album. Dark Memorials is one of the best cover song albums I’ve ever enjoyed in my Metal life! My favorite song on this album? All. Okay, it’s the cover of Autopsy’s Ridden With Disease. Metal be thy name. – Stone
