GHOULGOTHA “The Deathmass Cloak” – A Raging And Wicked, Blackened, Death Doom Metal Album!

4 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!


GHOULGOTHA - The Deathmass Cloak has been made available, on January 13th, via the Dark Descent website. This group was formed and is based in San Diego, California. GHOULGOTHA do strike the Death Metal hammer down, more than likely splitting speakers and skulls, across the lands, from their debut album. My Metal God almighty, is this album molasses heavy!

Overall, The Deathmass Cloak plays out as a Blackened Death Metal collides with calamitous Doom Metal listen. Heavy as King Kong’s monster-sized, congealed shit and fused with down tempo Death Metal are best to describe this album’s songs. GHOULGOTHA have won me over due their honing in on their own sound and by not following the leader within the Death Metal universe. There are hoards of riffs, that summons the same Metal Gods that have looked down upon Black Sabbath with appreciation and trust me, these guitar parts are CHUNKY.

I have found The Deathmass Cloak to be a rather diverse listen in Death Metal, where both Old Schoolers and newbies of the Modern era should both walk away feeling some deathly Metal fulfillment from GHOULGOTHA’s creativity. The all-encompassing Death Metal vibe on this album is just an overall treat for my senses; GHOULGOTHA has a downbeat aura to their sound that just locks me in, man.

The sonic surprises of both the album’s intro of Solar Awakening and closer, Levitate Within The Curse, are stuff of genius for a Death Metal band; very impressive musical ideas were obviously fulfilled there. I’ll leave that last thought as something you’ll have to hear for yourself, it’s too good to give away. Metal be thy name. – Stone

The Deathmass Cloak, the debut full-length from San Diego-based death metal band GHOULGOTHA, is out now on Dark Descent Records. Stream the album in its entirety at this location.

Purchase The Deathmass Cloak right here.

After a demo, EP and a split, GHOULGOTHA emphatically announces their presence in the metal realm with the 53-minute The Deathmass Cloak. The album is the product of the very warped and prolific W. Sarantopoulos (AKA Elektrokutioner), so expect some of the most outside the box brutality the underground has to offer. Produced by Damian Herring (HORRENDOUS) at Subterranean Watchtower Studio, The Deathmass Cloak is a weird and winding death metal album destined to satisfy even the harshest critics. Cover art for the album comes courtesy of Mattias Frisk (Vanhelgd).

The Deathmass Cloak – Track List:

Solar Awakening (Intro)

Gazing into Melted Night

A Neck for the Nameless Noose

Austere Urns

Saturnal Rites

Prophetic Oration of Self

Arteries Unblest

Citadel of Heathen Flesh

Cartilage Imperfect

Levitate Within the Curse


W. Sarantopoulos (DECREPITAPH, FATHER BEFOULED, ENCOFFINATION, WOODEN STAKE, FESTERED, SCAREMAKER and more) moved from Dallas to San Diego and began searching for musicians to bring some Doom/Death to Southern California. Shortly after moving, he hooked up with drummer C. Koryn (ASCENDED DEAD) who shared a lot of the same influences. Their playing styles worked perfectly with each other, making the song writing process very easy. The two jammed for a few months while looking for other members to complete the line up.

The band name GHOULGOTHA was chosen as it represents our dedication to rotting old skull Doom/Death. In the summer of 2012, J. Moreno (ASCENDED DEAD) and I. Mann were added on bass/vocals and second guitar, respectively. The full horde quickly put together a two song demo/promo called No Peace To Rest In and released it in September 2012.

ARA - promo band pic - #2015ARATDM


ARA is a Progressive/Technical Death Metal band, featuring members of the bands Northless and Concentric. ARA began in early 2012 as a culmination of the desires of Jerry Hauppa and Erik Stenglein to play in a Death Metal project that borrowed from their influences, without being mere carbon copies. Both Jerry and Erik have/had played in multiple Milwaukee area bands throughout the last 12 years, enjoying performing and creating various styles of music, but they had never realized their goal of creating stark, dissonant, yet strangely melodic brutality, until deciding to try to play some Death Metal riffs together, one day in their practice space.

This jam led to full songs and of course, the inception of ARA. Soon after, Jerry recruited longtime musical collaborator James Becker (Concentric, ex-Forever Is Forgotten) and Adam Bujny (ex-Gaspar Minga) on bass and vocals, respectively, and they filled out the sound in a way that led to the formation of material found on The Blessed Sleep. And that was just the beginning. New album Devourer of Worlds is ARA’s declaration of war!

INTERNAL SUFFERING – Long-Running Brutal Death Metal Behemoths Ink New Deal With Unique Leader Records

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , on December 29, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Unique Leader Records is very pleased to announce the re-signing of long-running brutal Death Metal behemoths, INTERNAL SUFFERING.

Comments the band in a collective statement: “We are stoked to announce that we have resigned with Unique Leader! We are all very proud to be again a part of a label that has released some of the finest extreme death metal albums in history from bands such as Deeds Of Flesh, Decrepit Birth, Disgorge, Pyrexia, Internal Bleeding, Disavowed, Hour Of Penance, Aeon, Beheaded, Psycroptic and Spawn Of Possession, just to name a few. This is the beginning of a new chapter for us. We would like to thank Erik Lindmark and all the staff at Unique Leader for welcoming us back into their incredible roster. Few other labels can touch their legacy when it comes to high quality brutal death metal. We’ll be starting the recording sessions this Winter. We look forward to previously undreamed-of levels of brutality, speed and intensity with this new record. Stay tuned for more details!”

Spawned in 1996, INTERNAL SUFFERING recently relocated from their home base in Pereira, Columbia to Madrid, Spain. Notorious for their apocalyptic brand of brutal, blasting, technically proficient death metal, the band’s bestial discography includes four full-lengths: 2000’s Supreme Knowledge Domain (Repulse Records), 2002’s Chaotic Matrix (Displeased Records), 2004’s Choronzonic Force Domination (Displeased Records) and 2006’s Awakening of the Rebel (Unique Leader Records), the last two of which featured the production prowess of extreme metal sound-wizard Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal/ex-Morbid Angel).

A maniacal work ethic and thirst to spread their audio peril globally has allowed INTERNAL SUFFERING the opportunity to ransack stages throughout the US, Europe and Asia along the iconic likes of Cannibal Corpse, Sodom, Incantation, Exodus and Origin, among many more. The band has also graced the bills of some of the most important extreme metal festivals in the world including the Maryland Deathfest, Extreme Fest, Neurotic Death Fest, Barroselas Metal Fest, Tokyo Death Fest, Bangkok Deathfest, Fuck The Commerce Fest, Obscene Extreme Festival and Kaltenbach Open Air Fest as well as an appearance last year at the massive Rock At The Park. Among the most populated open air fests in Latin America, Rock At The Park draws over 100,000 headbangers annually!

INTERNAL SUFFERING will release their long-awaited fifth studio album via Unique Leader Records in 2015. Details to be unveiled in due time.

Apocrophex - band logo - 2014 - #001

American Technical Death Metal duo APOCROPHEX are pleased to release The Grey, the first single from their highly anticipated début full length Suspended From the Cosmic Altaar.

The Grey is the opening track from the upcoming album, set to be released 3/10/15 on CD and digital via NJ-based Manicidic Records.

The band released the following statement about the song:

“We chose “The Grey” as first contact because it fully represents our evolution and progression from the Wheels Within Wheels EP so well. Fans that have only heard those 2 short tracks are in for an eye opener with this album, due to its massive leap forward in song structure, overall technicality and sheer power. Lyrically, the song presents the listener with the ever unsettling and horrific threat of being limited in option, to feeling and experiencing only constant fear, or ultimately nothing at all...”

Pre-order information will be available soon.

Listen to The Grey here:
