Dubai-Based Death/Thrash assault, and recent Unique Leader signees, NERVECELL, will reissue their critically lauded Psychogenocide full-length next year.

Initially released via Lifeforce Records in 2011, Psychogenocide was produced and engineered by Rami H. Mustafa at Spellbind Studio in Dubai, United Arab Emirates with drums engineered by Joe Haley at Red Planet Studios in Australia, then mixed and mastered by Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy at Hertz Studios (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated) in Bialystok, Poland. The album features a guest vocal appearance by Nile’s Karl Sanders on the song “Shunq (To The Despaired…King Of Darkness)” and reaped mass approval from major media outlets globally.

Metal Hammer championed the band’s, “…thrilling contrast between oriental and musical culture,” furthering that, “these elements don’t collide, they complement each other,” Legacy extolled, “an amazing oriental death-ax and a must have for every Metal hornet,” while The Metal Observer gushed, “it’s quite the quandary to find an even remotely average track on Psychogenocide. NERVECELL‘s latest is a Death Metal album that succeeds in part to its strong focus on memorability and song structure. Things work exceedingly well from start-to-finish…”

Adds the band in a collective statement:Psychogenocide is an album about manipulation and the deception of the human race for an agenda of a higher purpose. A modern approach to the old-school Death/Thrash metal sound, that is both technical yet melodic and full of the NERVECELL signature Middle Eastern twist.”

Psychogenocide – Track Listing:

  1. Anemic Assurgency
  2. Upon An Epidemic Scheme
  3. All Eyes On Them
  4. Amok Doctrine
  5. Psychogenocide
  6. Imprint
  7. Shunq (To The Despaired…King Of Darkness)
  8. The Taste of Betrayal
  9. Driven By Nescience
  10. Nation’s Plague

Forged in 2000 as one of the first Extreme Metal bands to emerge from Dubai and having toured alongside legendary Metal acts such as Metallica, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Decapitated and Suffocation, NERVECELL are true torchbearers for a Middle Eastern wave of Metal. The band released their debut full-length, Preaching Venom, in 2009 via Germany’s Lifeforce Records (Europe) and Spellbind Records (Middle East) followed by their critically-adored Psychogenocide long player just two years later. Their unique blend of Middle Eastern Death/Thrash and a reputation for debilitating action-packed live performances helped pave their way to playing some of Europe’s most renowned festivals including Wacken Open Air, With Full Force, Rock AM Ring, Rock IM Park, Summer Breeze and Brutal Assault.

The widespread success of Psychogenocide also awarded NERVECELL the honor of being crowned the “All Time Best Selling Metal Act” in the Middle East and North Africa region, consequently receiving a plaque of recognition from Virgin Megastores (MENA) in January of 2012 certifying this huge accomplishment. Psychogenocide was also lauded as one of the “Top 10 Death Metal Albums Of 2011″ by media outlets globally including Metal Hammer Magazine who named NERVECELL one of the “Defenders Of The Faith,” listing the band as one of the “50 Heroes Of The New Metal Revolution.”

Psychogenocide will be reissued on January 27th, 2015 via Unique Leader Records with preorders to be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime check out various studio clips as well as live footage from the band’s pummeling performance at Kaltenbach Open Air at THIS LOCATION.

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.

Deserted Fear - promo band pic - 2014 - #39934

Metal Hammer Germany has premiered the new video for the title track from DESERTED FEAR’s upcoming album Kingdom of Worms. Check out the video at  this location.

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:
