Swedish chainsaw-cadavers INTERMENT once again unravel the hellish mausoleum with the group’s latest scorcher Scent Of The Buried! The band’s sophomore album will be released April 1st, on Dark Descent Records.

Six years and a few line-up changes later, INTERMENT came back more savage than ever at the peak of the current Swedish Death Metal scene, with hints of the band showing maturity and dynamism, while without ever losing their integrity as a no-holds-barred primal beast. In murderous HM-2 SweDeathmachine we trust.

Recorded and mixed by the legendary Tomas Skogsberg at Sunlight Studio, Stockholm (Nihilist, Entombed, Dismember, Grave, Desultory, etc) and mastering duties handled by Demonical frontman Sverker ‘Widda’ Widgren at Wing Studios (Diabolical, Demonical, Centinex, Nidsang, Setherial, etc). Featuring the extremely frightful artwork of Juanjo Castellano (Portrait, Revel In Flesh, Avulsed, etc).

Track List:

1. Death and Decay
2. Sinister Incantation
3. Chalice of Death
4. Repugnant Funeral
5. Scent of The Buried
6. Rise of The Dead
7. Unholy Upheaval
8. Dawn of Blasphemy
9. Skullcrushing Carnage
10. Nailed to the Grave

Feb. 10, 2016, PHILADELPHIA – Portland’s Red Fang has announced a new run of North American dates this coming April, which will see the band playing venues across the U.S. West Coast and British Columbia with support from Golden Void, Bison and Black Wizard on select dates. Red Fang recently celebrated its tenth anniversary with a trio of Northwestern U.S. performances.

The band returns to the studio later this month, recording the follow-up to Whales & Leeches with famed producer Ross Robinson (At The Drive In, The Cure, Sepultura) and mixing handled by Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, Melvins, Tool). Red Fang will trek from Portland to Robinson’s Venice, Calif. studio with two shows en route: Feb. 17 at Jub Jub’s in Reno and Feb. 18 at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz.

Whales & Leeches was released in October 2013 via Relapse Records. The 11-song album landed the band on The Late Show with David Letterman and in a world of trouble in the zombie-infused video for “Blood Like Cream,” which featured guest Fred Armisen (view it now at THIS LOCATION).  Alternative Press said Whales & Leeches was “bigger, bolder, heavier, catchier and even more savagely fun.” Hear Whales & Leeches in full via the band’s Bandcamp page HERE or below:

Pagan Records is proud to announce the signing of Cracovian act Ragehammer for their debut full-length. Established in 2012, the quartet has already made a lot of noise due to their uncompromising take on old-school Thrash, Black and Speed Metal.

Their War Hawks demo (2012) received plenty of positive reviews and currently the band is putting the final touches on their debut full-length, entitled The Hammer Doctrine. The album will be released this Spring through Pagan Records and will be followed up by a 7-inch vinyl split with Sweden’s Turbocharged through Godz ov War/Mythrone Promotion.

RAGEHAMMER:

Corpsebutcher – Bass
Mortar – Drums
Bestial Avenger – Guitars
Heretik Hellstörm – Vocals

Critical Praise:

“…one can find some traces of some recent Darkthrone albums, plus a bit of Nifelheim or even Absu (why not?), so anything that can have any signs of pure, old styled and archaic metal – be it Black, Thrash or Heavy Metal… Oh, sorry, but have I mentioned Venom?” – Panzerfaust Zine

“…the band goes at breakneck speed, making War Hawks one hell of an album to headbang or mosh to.” – Heavy Metal Tribune

“War Hawks is a decent demo likely to appeal to fans of Cruel Force, Deathhammer, and even Nifelheim, so if you’re a dedicated follower of this style, don’t miss out.” – From The Dust Returned
