German Death Metallers ICHOR have made Ra’iroa, a track from new album Depths, available for free download. Grab that sucker and stream the album right here.  Check out the official video for “Ra’iroa” as well at this location. ICHOR’s Depths is out now on Bastardized Recordings. After slaying European fans with their vicious brand of modern Death Metal, the German quintet is now offering aural decimation to North and South American fans. Depths can be purchased at the Bastardized Store. The earth is destroyed and mankind escapes into the sea. But the struggle for survival continues as a new society struggles to combat authoritarian reign with furious passion. This plunge into the deep, dark sea is the central theme of Depths, a story that ICHOR delivers with a soundtrack that both mesmerizes and assaults the listener. Depths was recorded at Hertz Studios in Białystok, Poland (Behemoth, Decapitated, Vader, etc).

Stylistically, Depths is most similar to American Death Metal with crushing riffs and a pummeling drum attack, complete with Black Metal flourishes and an overall approach that offers listeners a varied and memorable experience. “The Heretic King” lyric video can be viewed here. While you’re at it, check out a promo video for “The Beasts Approach” at this location. DEPTHS – Track Listing: 1. Deep Rising 2. Apophis 3. Ra´iroa 4. While Giants Sleep 5. The Beasts Approach 6. The Heretic King 7. Leviathan 8. Deny Your God 9. Desire Of The Depth 10. Cthulus Sons 11. Hadal Sirens

ICHOR \ˈī-ˌkȯr, -kər\ Definition: 1: an ethereal fluid taking the place of blood in the veins of the ancient Greek gods ICHOR started their crusade in 2008. After they have released a demo tape on their own the band released their first full-length album The Siege in 2009. This album was recorded and mixed by Phil Hillen from the SU2-Studio, and mastered by Simon of War From A Harlots Mouth. After this release the band went on the road and toured with bands like Aborted, Benigthed and The Black Dahlia Murder. In 2010 ICHOR released their second album  Benthic Horizon which was recorded in the mighty Hertz Studio (Behemoth, Decapitated, Vader, Hate) in Białystok/Poland. Benthic Horizon appeared in Europe via Bastardized Recordings and was re-released in the UK by Siege of Amida in 2011.

After another year of tireless touring through Europe ICHOR went to the Hertz studio again to record their third full-length album Depths that will now appear on Bastardized Recordings. Depths is a journey into the deep-sea, an escape into destruction and the downfall of mankind, which has to re-create and to struggle with obsession, with power, war, suffering and the passion for survival.


“When they’re not immersed in a fray of slashing, buzzing riffs, the guitars wisely inject melodious solos, courteous respites to the band’s incessant fight and a quality reminiscent of acts like Misery Index, Man Must Die, or The Black Dahlia Murder.” Metal Observer

“Big burly modern death metal.”Teeth of the Divine

HALO CREATION – Female Fronted DEATH METAL Band From Austria Set To Release Debut Album This Autumn!

HALO CREATION is a DEATH METAL band from Vienna, Austria and was founded in 2014. Their unequivocal message is:


The five members of the band bring you real, powerful and straight Metal and also live, you can feel and see the brute force of HALO CREATION.

It began in a small rehearsal room in the middle of Vienna. Since the very beginning, they rehearse regularly and so the first songs accrued. In the Summer of 2014, a Demo CD with four songs on it was recorded. In September, HALO CREATION played their first live show, together with ILLDISPOSED.

Since this show, they play live regularly and already shared the stage with GRAVEWORM and JINJER. These days they are busy with songwriting for their first album and this Summer of 2015 they will enter the studio. The release of the full-length is scheduled for Autumn.

For HALO CREATION, it is important to produce elaborated and very powerful music. When they`re playing live, the crowd should go crazy and while listening to their songs any kind of emotions should arise.

The music should be real Death Metal, which means, there will be no clean vocals nor Nu Metal parts in it. Moreover, outstanding chorus lines are important. Further, excesses in speed or changes in rhythm should be a big part of their music.

CORPSE GARDEN – Reveal Details Of New Album ‘Entheogen’

Corpse Garden, the five-piece Death Metal outfit from Costa Rica are proud to announce that their second album, Entheogen, will be released this May 15th through both Russian Label Satanath Records and German Label RTM Productions.

The title Entheogen refers to a chemical substance that is often used in religious or spiritual practices to aim for transcendence. Vocalist Felipe Tencio elaborates further:

“We think [Entheogen] is what really describes the music and the sound we accomplished with this album as well as it being an analogy for the transformation the band suffered, and the lyrical concept. The lyrics go through each one of the seven operations of alchemical transformation and Carl Jung’s studies on Individuation.”

Satanath Records Owner Aleksey had this to say on the label’s newest signing:

“I like this young and talented band. Their music is mysterious and meets all the canons of the style that I love. The album spews out energetic and technical death metal with a delicious bass in the spirit of old school death metal. Yet Corpse Garden do not fixate on the [old school vibe] and thereby retain their originality. Verdict: It is impossible not to release!”

The Entheogen artwork was designed by Alexander L. Brown [BNB Illustration and Design].

Formed in 2009, Corpse Garden released one EP before settling down to record their debut full-length release Burnt By The Light [2012]. Riding high from the great response from their debut, the band powered on to win the Central American heat in the worldwide Wacken Metal Battle competition and represented the area at the 2012 Wacken festival in Germany.

With a comprehensive line-up change in 2013 to what is their current set-up, Corpse Garden settled down to compose and write what would become Entheogen. Entering the Bushido Audio Production Studio in 2014 with producer Juan Pablo Calvo, the album was mastered by Eri Román at SoloHit Studios in San José.

‘Entheogen’ – Track Listing:

1. The Quantum Rapture
2. In the Womb of Chaos
3. Portal to the Oneiric
4. The Arrival of Saturn
5. Suspended Over the Abyss
6. Evoking a Dead Sun
7. Sulphur
8. Neux Ex Machina
9. The First Incarnation
10. A Balance of Opposites
11. The Emerald Vision
12. Red Pulvis Solaris
13. Enantiodromia

“Diluvial Ascension – Gateway To The Antisphere” Artwork Video Posted


The winds of spring bring the stench of Sulphur, as German Death Metal tyrants, SULPHUR AEON, prepare for the devastating unfurling of their leviathan sophomore LP, Gateway To The Antisphere, through a cooperative release between Imperium Productions and Ván Records.

SULPHUR AEON‘s critically acclaimed demo tape, Sulphur Psalms, was released in August 2010, followed by the Deep Deep Down They Sleep 7″, released in May of 2012. The band’s debut album, Swallowed By The Ocean’s Tide, was released in December 2012 through Imperium Productions. The album received worldwide praise by fans and the media alike as being one of the very few innovative and pioneering Death Metal albums of recent years with its deathly mélange of ferocious riffs, ultra-precise drums and sepulchral incantatory chants, combined with a high level of musical competence and songwriting to the most haunting and wicked Death Metal.

Now it’s time for the ancient ones to rise once more from the restless diluvial depths of timeless death, as SULPHUR AEON delivers the rapture of their second album, Gateway To The Antisphere. The album was produced by Simon Werner who was already responsible for the sound of the previous recordings of the band, and the result is a catastrophic and instantly memorable work of extreme metal art. Fifty-two minutes of debilitating yet enthralling, black-tinged, Lovecraftian death, suck the listener in like an inescapable vortex, as visually depicted in the mind-blowing cover artwork (with the emphasis on “art”) was created by Ola Larsson.

The sixth of the eleven harrowing passages on Gateway To The Antisphere has been released through an incredible artwork video. Witness the destruction of “Diluvial Ascension – Gateway To The Antisphere” now at THIS LOCATION or below:

Gateway To The Antisphere, will be released in cooperation between Imperium Productions and Ván Records on CD and as digital download on April 3rd, and vinyl in late April, the album a must-have piece for followers of Ulcerate, Morbus Chron, Abyssal, Vanhelgd and the like.

The Aeon of Sulphur awaits. A crack in the sky. A threshold. The gateway to the antisphere…

Gateway To The Antisphere – Track Listing:

1. …To Drown This World
2. Devotion To The Cosmic Chaos
3. Titans
4. Calls From Below
5. Abysshex
6. Diluvial Ascension – Gateway To The Antisphere
7. He Is The Gate
8. Seventy Steps
9. Onwards… Towards Kadath
10. Into The Courts Of Azathoth
11. Conclusion

Six Feet Under - Crypt Of The Devil - promo album cover pic - 2015 #663409MO

SIX FEET UNDER will release their eleventh studio recording this Spring via Metal Blade Records. Titled Crypt Of The Devil, the ten track slab of audio violence was composed by vocalist Chris Barnes and Cannabis Corpse bassist/vocalist Phil “Landphil” Hall. While on tour with Cannabis Corpse in 2013, Barnes and Hall met and kept in touch. Barnes would later lend his vocals to a track on Cannabis Corpse’s From Wisdom To Baked. That same year, Hall and Barnes joined forces to pen brand new SIX FEET UNDER tracks.

Barnes lauds Hall’s take on the SIX FEET UNDER style of Death Metal and stated that this material was, “where my wheelhouse is – it’s where I thrive vocally and lyrically.” Crypt Of The Devil stands as a truly collaborative and cross-country effort from a selection of today’s finest metal minds, and the result is a refreshing SIX FEET UNDER experience.

Crypt Of The Devil will see release in North America via Metal Blade Records on May 5th, 2015. For a taste of the first single, “Open Coffin Orgy,” as well as a selection of preorder bundles, go to:
