Additional Live Dates To Be Announced

Iconic Death Metal legion, INCANTATION, will continue to raze stages throughout North America in support of their Dirges Of Elysium full-length.

The following day, INCANTATION will head to Worcester, Massachusetts to play this year’s edition of the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival at the Palladium. From there, the band will bring their audio malevolence to stages in Pittsburgh, Brooklyn, Syracuse and Buffalo. The onstage abrasions continue the following month when INCANTATION ravages their way through seven more cities before bringing their brutality to the Maryland Death Fest Pre-Party on May 20th in Baltimore.

In June, INCANTATION will summon the dead at the Farmageddon Festival FOA in Vancouver and in August the band will take part in the Wolves Of Apocalypse Festival in Denver.

INCANTATION released Dirges Of Elysium last year via Listenable Records. Crowned, “one of the most influential death metal bands of all time,” by Metal Injection, who further elaborated of the record, “With all the evil-sounding riffs, squealing pinch-harmonics and crushing dirges scattered throughout, this is the sound that made INCANTATION legends. This is some profoundly dark and creepy stuff,” the record continues to raise the brows of death metallers old and new. Sputnik Music dubbed Dirges Of Elysium, “a breath of fresh air for INCANTATION, and another fine addition to their discography, ” Metal Forces gushed, “It’s all ungodly but all so bloody brilliant, and with ‘Charnel Grounds’ smoldering from the stench of char-coaled flesh and the blustering bluster of ‘Dominant Ethos’ dragging us into the mud-clogged shredder that is ‘Elysium (Eternity Is Nigh),’ I hold up my severed stumps in surrender for another harangue of hate from one of death metal’s most criminally underrated bands,” while Exclaim added, “INCANTATION preserve their archetypal ominous atmosphere, while the production gives the band a more modern edge, making Dirges Of Elysium a consistent yet fresh release from the influential band.”

Comments the band in a collective statement: “The response to the Dirges Of Elysium album and tour has just been amazing! We still have a lot of touring left to go for this release. We are looking forward to seeing all you deathbangers on the road!”

As reported by Metal Blade Records:

Everyone please welcome Cut Up to the Metal Blade roster! The band features Tobias Gustafsson and Erik Rundqvist of Vomitory fame, as well as Ander Bertilsson from Coldworker, and Andreas Björnson from Fetus Stench.

Fans can expect a violent, catchy, groovy album of pure Swedish death metal this summer!

Drummer Tobias Gustafsson comments: “I am very happy, proud, honoured and excited to team up with Metal Blade Records once again, this time with CUT UP! Can’t stay away from playing death metal, obviously, so it feels fantastic to have this murderous ensemble together so soon after putting Vomitory into eternal sleep. Cut Up is not just “another project”, but all four members’ new main band. We have made a debut album that we are tremendously satisfied with, both material and production-wise. We can’t wait to let you hear it! Cut Up aim to hit the stages as soon as the album is released, so we hope to see you all in the front row and in the pit!”







LIVE BURIAL – S/T EP Of Barbarous Deathly Doom Metal Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Live Burial - self-titled EP - 2014 - #66EP

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!


LIVE BURIAL – The self-titled EP from Live Burial has made me proclaim it as: over  22 minutes of savage and doom ridden Death Metal, that can easily rip and tear your Metal soul apart. This is some of the most enjoyable Metal I’ve listened to in 2014; Live Burial is Death Metal with hefty doom influence that’s 100% underground and the real deal. Originating from Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, this is a Death Metal band I’m more than elated to welcome across the Atlantic.

Jamie Brown offers up some disgustingly violent vocals and growls and the entire band plays some solid Death Metal, across 4 scathing songs, to my ears. Excellent! Live Burial prove they can play at eye-popping breakneck speed or slow it down to an evil Doom death march for the gathering of innocent mortal’s souls. The guitars without a doubt have some Tony Iommi influence snuck in there, with the rhythm section playing at a constant resounding capacity. Live Burial is an EP I won’t be forgetting about for quite some time, both nefarious and old school. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Crank Up, Support And Download LIVE BURIAL, Below! Whoa!

LIVE BURIAL – Track Listing:

1. Cast Back Into The Fire

2. Live Burial

3. Separation Through Evisceration

4. Begging For Cremation

Horrified - Descent Into Putridity - promo cover pic

Stream the full album at Nefarious Realm

The age of putridity has finally arrived. UK old school death metal lads Horrified have released their début full-length Descent Into Putridity via cult Spanish label Memento Mori Records. Within this record are seven encrusted tracks of filthy Death Metal, just as the forefathers of the genre intended. Channeling the spirit of Pestilence, Autopsy and Dismember, the band unload a barrage of riffs and thundering drums, topped by Dan Alderson’s gruff bark to honor the legacy of Martin Van Drunen (Asphyx, Hail Of Bullets) and Lars-Göran Petrov (Entombed).

Stream the album at Nefarious Realm here:

Digital copies can be obtained from their Bandcamp page, while physical copies are available from Memento Mori’s website.

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.


HORRIFIED are from Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK.

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.
