Horrified - Descent Into Putridity - promo cover pic

Old School Death Metallers HORRIFIED have now announced that preorders for their début album are available via their Bandcamp page. The album, Descent Into Putridity, has been picking up interest from the Metal underground, with Void Ritual’s Dan Jackson commenting: “while it borrows some of that Dismember tone, it doesn’t get trapped in the musical clichés of most OSDM.

HORRIFIED have also released a second song from Descent Into Putridity for sampling, also available on Bandcamp. The title track is a prime specimen of the Swedish and Floridian influences they work into their sound, with a thick rumbling bass underscoring the coarse riffs and hoarse grunts.

Stream “Descent Into Putridity” Here:

Physical release date is set to be in October via Memento Mori Records.

Kingdom of Worms will be released October 24 through FDA Rekotz. The vinyl LP version will be released on November 21.

Thuringia´s DESERTED FEAR are one of the best Death Metal bands to come out of Germany in years. The band’s 2012 debut My Empire was praised the world over and won them recognition in the European scene as a force to be reckoned with. Germany´s Rock Hard magazine referred to the album as “simply amazing.”

Kingdom of Worms was recorded in June and July 2014 at Eisensound Studio in Eisenberg (Thuringia / Germany) under the knife of guitarist Gitarrist Fabian Hildebrandt. Mixing and Mastering duties have been handled by the legendary Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity, Bloodbath, etc.), who put the finishing touches on Kingdom of Worms in his very own Unisound Studio. The dark and atmospheric artwork was once again created by Thomas “Necromaniac” Westphal fits the music perfectly.

Hear Rock Hard’s exclusive stream of album track “Mortal Reign” at this location.

Unspeakable Axe Records Release Limited Edition CEMETERY FILTH Cassette

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 30, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Cemetery Filth - Screams From The Catacombs - promo cassette cover art pic

Unspeakable Axe Records has released Screams from the Catacombs, the debut EP from CEMETERY FILTH, on limited-edition cassette.

Hailing from the mountainous eastern region of Tennessee, CEMETERY FILTH  sound as if they’d be more at home in an unholy netherworld poised somewhere between Finland and Sweden. This is old school Death Metal in a mainly European vein: morbid, twisted, and abstaining from technicality while injecting just the right-sized dose of melody and eerie lead guitar.

Unspeakable Axe Records is now offering the EP, which was self-recorded by the band earlier this year, on cassette. This release is limited to 200 copies. Check out the title track from Screams from the Catacombs below:

A Skeletal Domain marks CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s thirteenth studio album. Produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) at Audio Hammer Studios, the record boasts twelve ravenous tracks of confrontational, meticulously executed, ill-omened brutality as only CANNIBAL CORPSE can deliver.

In related A Skeletal Domain news, today CANNIBAL CORPSE is pleased to unveil the official new video for third cut of depravity, “Kill Or Become.” Shot at Kelly’s Hideaway in Seffner, Florida and directed by critically lauded videographer David Brodsky of MyGoodEye (Goatwhore, Hellyeah, Whitechapel, Municipal Waste et al), the zombie-strewn, nightmarishly awesome clip fluctuates from color and black and white and offers up a delicious visual inundation of blood, guts and gastric fluids.

Check it out at http://www.metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse. And don’t forget your chainsaw!

A Skeletal Domain is out NOW via Metal Blade Records. Order yours today at THIS LOCATION and check out the band’s newly launched website at http://www.cannibalcorpse.net!

Critical Praise:

“‘Vector Of Cruelty’ is a masterful combination of coruscating mid-pace burl and quirky thrash, ‘The Murderer’s Pact’ pushes boundaries in the fields of lead work and atonality, while ‘Kill Or Become’ has a sizzling, infectious quality and the potential to be a set closer should they ever quit it with ‘Hammer Smashed Face.’… the point is, there’s material on lucky number thirteen that stands up to the classics.” – Decibel

“A Skeletal Domain proves why CANNIBAL CORPSE are still such an integral part of the metal world.” – Loudiwre

“…an absolute must have for any lover of anything brutal…” – Metal Injection

“…one of CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s most absorbing records in years.” – The Guardian
