Zombiefication - At The Caves Of Eternal - promo cover pic!

Mexican corpse-walkers ZOMBIEFICATION have their second full-length album, At the Caves of Eternal, out now in North America via Pulverised Records.

This putrid masterpiece was recorded at Revolution Studios with Jesús Bravo handling engineering duties and then sent to Necromorbus Studios in Sweden (Watain, Demonical, Desultory, etc) for mixing and mastering under the helm of Tore Stjerna. At the Caves of Eternal comes on the heels of last year’s five-song EP, Reaper’s Consecration.

To stream At the Caves of Eternal in full and purchase a digital download of the album, visit

Jewel case CDs are available at

Media Praise:

“…prepare for a delectable feast of old school Death Metal that not only remains both catchy yet punishingly heavy throughout but also incorporates slower more methodical and sinister moments, darker and colder segments that border on Black Metal influence and the constant presence of a band who totally dominate their sound and style.” [10/10] – Destructive Music

“…obscured and rotten death metal with classic dark vibes.” – Zombie Ritual Zine

After 3 decades of sickness, the 2 piece maggot eating death machine known as ZOMBIEFICATION is ready to crawl out of the grave with disgust. Soon they will take over the graveyard and unite the dead for the unholy ceremony. Few have been to the encounters so far, but the new age of putrid Death Metal will stench the world. Welcome to the gates, to the gates of the Underworld. Only stench is real!

Kataklysm - large logo

Montreal based Death Metal powerhouse, KATAKLYSM, have been quietly working on new material for the past several months for their long-awaited follow-up to the highly successful Heaven’s Venom album.

“Well it’s been a seriously busy ride since our last album Heaven’s Venom was released over 3 years ago,” commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono. “From a successful world headlining run, to Ozzfest, into a recap of our 20 years as band with the Iron Will DVD. We’ve been writing in a very humble fashion behind the scenes for the last six months. It’s time to take KATAKLYSM to higher levels and dig deep into our capacities as musicians and songwriters. We know exactly what we have to do, that’s why we have taken our time and why we’ll be taking most of the Summer to complete the new album. The record will deal lyrically with mortality and the purpose of ones being on this earth. The moment we are born we start to die. It’s a sort of deal we make with life, and with that I title the new KATAKLYSM album Waiting for the End to Come.”

Waiting for the End to Come is tentatively scheduled for a late 2013 / early 2014 release. The album will be recorded by guitarist Jean Francois Dagenais and mixed by Zeuss (SUFFOCATION, HATEBREED, ARSIS)

As previously reported, KATAKLYSM guitarist and longtime producer Jean-François Dagenais (MALEVOLENT CREATION, MISERY INDEX, DESPISED ICON, EX DEO) will once again helm the new record. The band is scheduled to enter JFD studio in Montreal and Dallas in June/July.

Revel In Flesh - Manifested Darkness - promo cover pic

The good folks at DeathMetal.Org have taken a sledgehammer to the face of false metal by streaming a brand new track from the forthcoming album from REVEL IN FLESH. The song, entitled Dominate the Rotten,comes off the band’s forthcoming sophomore release, Manifested Darkness and is currently cracking skulls at

Harnessing the momentum created by the album that Teeth of the Divine’s Erik Thomas called “the best of a recent impressive run of the style,” Manifested Darkness ups the ante and goes for the jugular. The album is sure to be considered one of 2013’s best classic Death Metal releases.

The CD and digital download will be unleashed on April 12th by FDA Rekotz and contains nine hammering new hymns of destruction plus one special bonus track exclusive to the CD version. The LP version will be out on April 26th and will include an additional bonus track. The artwork for Manifested Darkness was created by the Spanish artist Juanjo Castellano. The album was mixed and mastered at Unisound Studio by Dan Swanö.

Pre-orders are available at


REVEL IN FLESH was formed to pay tribute to the impure way of classical 90’s European old school Death Metal! The line-up consists of former IMMORTAL RITES (R.I.P), DAWN OF DREAMS and APOPHIS members.FDA Rekotz - Logo______________________________________________

Ten METAL Albums I Cannot Live Without


You know which Metal albums you can’t possibly live without! Those are the Metal albums you turn to so often, they feel like they’re a part of you! Metal albums that I can’t live without are just like Metal Buddies; they’re always there to lean on and hang out with! Here is a list of ten Metal albums I can’t live without.

This list is a part one, cause in reality, there are probably a few hundred more Metal albums that I couldn’t live without! By no means is this my top ten Metal albums of all time; in essence, what this list represents is a grand starting point for me! Therefore, a part two, three, four and more to this topic will most likely happen! Hallelujah and ring that Metal bell!

This list of Metal albums are in no particular order, other than I can’t live without them. I hope you enjoy this list and feel free to add your Metal albums you can’t live without via a comment. Metal be thy name!

As shown at the top of this post, Heaven And Hell (1980) from the Ronnie James Dio era Black Sabbath is a keeper for life. Whoa.

PANTERA "Cowboys From Hell"

BLACK SABBATH – Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1974 U.S. Release)

BLACK SABBATH could very well be THE band that started METAL in the first place. It sure wasn’t Air Supply or The Carpenters that invented Metal. (That last sentence was funny, wasn’t it?)

SATYRICON – The Age Of Nero (2008)



KISS - Destroyer - Promo Album Pic #2!

KISS – Destroyer (1976)

Yes, “back in the day” KISS was as close to Metal as Alice Cooper, Uriah Heep, UFO and Ted Nugent were. That’s my Metal opinion anyways!

Compiling this first installment of Ten Metal Albums I Can’t Live Without was (gulp) fun! You can count on me to continue onward with this Metal topic! It’s too enticing a Metal topic to ignore!

SKELETAL REMAINS – FDA Rekotz To Release SKELETAL REMAINS’ Beyond The Flesh On November 9th

Posted in Metal with tags , , , , , on October 11, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

After a phenomenal demo tape, California Death Metallers SKELETAL REMAINS will release their first full-length album, Beyond the Flesh, through FDA Rekotz on November 9th (UK release is December 3rd) in CD, digital, and vinyl LP formats.

The LP comes in a glossy gatefold jacket and includes a bonus track cover of GORGUTS’ “Disincarnated.” As one would expect from a FDA Rekotz release, Beyond the Flesh is classic Death Metal from the rotten crypt and awakens the spirit of the late 80s/ early 90s Morrisound crush. If you like the early hymns of GORGUTS, PESTILENCE, DEATH, and MORGOTH, surely you’ll freak out over SKELETAL REMAINS! Beyond The Flesh will launch you right back to that storied era and leave you breathless.

Check out a promo video for “Extirpated Vitality” below!
