STRIGASKÓR NR.42 Signs with Hellthrasher !

We are very excited to announce a worldwide deal with Icelandic industrial metal/punk legends STRIGASKÓR NR. 42 – a band with quite a long history, but sporatic activity through the years.Formed in the late eighties, Strigaskór nr. 42 came to be at the forefront of the vibrant Icelandic death-metal scene in the early nineties (3-way split with Sororicide and In Memoriam released back in 1992). The band’s only full album to date, ‘Blót’ (1994), veered away from traditional metal style into more avantgarde sound and received widespread critical acclaim and a cult status in Iceland’s music community, being considered by many as the best metal album ever released by an Icelandic band.Now, nearly twenty years later, the band is back with a new album, „Armadillo”, self-released digitally in September 2013, with the CD version coming later this year through our label. The band’s current incarnation draws its influences from legendary acts such as Voivod, Primus, Madness and Wire, while remaining a unique and colorful fusion of various styles. Rolling Stone Magazine called them „a metal animal with big-band weight” and that sums them up perfectly.

ENTROPIA Signs With Hellthrasher !

We are happy to announce the successful negotiations with Polish post-black metal band Entropia regarding the vinyl treatment of their amazing debut full-length “Vesper”. The album was originally self-released by the band digitally and on CD in February 2013 and can best be described as a genuine, refreshing mixture of black, sludge and progressive metal, accompanied with post-rock sensitivity and etherealness of shoegaze, on par with bands such as Altar of Plagues, Krallice, Agalloch and Wolves in the Throne Room. The 12” LP will be released in the edition of 300 copies and should be out by the end of this year.

 

Mitochondrion / Auroch split 7`EP

We are very excited to announce our first 7” vinyl EP – a split release between two crushing death metal acts from Canada: MITOCHONDRION  and AUROCH . This will be a conceptual piece that will run as one 10-minute song (divided in two parts), with one title, and one set of lyrics. Both bands are presently working on their brand new full-length albums for Profound Lore, so this EP should work as a nice (and killer) appetizer. The release date is roughly set for early 2014. Stay tuned for more details!

CARPE NOCTEM ‘In Terra Profugus’ 12LP OUT SOON !

We are glad to announce a worldwide deal with Code666/Aural Music regarding the vinyl release of the Carpe Noctem (Iceland) debut album ‘In Terra Profugus’. This is absolutely one of the most sonically adventurous black metal acts we’ve heard in a long while – raw, chaotic and apocalyptic soundscape combined with magic & obscure Icelandic lyrics creating a dark, swirling atmosphere; not to be missed by fans of sludgy, avant-garde black metal following the path of Deathspell Omega. The release will be limited to only 300 units and it’s due out during the first half of 2014.

 

BURIAL HORDES signs with Hellthrasher!

After two albums for Pulverised Records, Greek black metal band Burial Hordes return with the magnificent, long-awaited third full-length „Incendium”, which will be released early 2014 by Hellthrasher Productions! The album features 8 bestial pieces layered with an eerie, nihilistic atmosphere and it’s arguably their most consistent and mature work to date with flawless, raw production courtesy of Devo Andersson (Marduk) from Endarker Studio. With „Incendium”, Burial Hordes spread their dark, hateful vision stronger than ever, cementing their position as one of the leading forces in the Greek and European underground scene. Check out below the crushing opening track „Unleash Havoc” and the cover art by mighty Mark Riddick!

HERETIC CULT REDEEMER Signs With Hellthrasher !

As you may probably know, we are really into Greek extreme metal scene, which is growing stronger day by day. So, after such signings as Resurgency, War Possession and Serpent Noir, we are pleased to announce a deal with another great band from this country – black metal quartet HERETIC CULT REDEEMER featuring members from Acrimonious, Embrace of Thorns and Necrovorous. Their self-titled debut full-length is scheduled for the release on September 2nd via Iron Bonehead Records as a 12” vinyl edition. We will be handling the CD version, which should see the light of day later this fall. This is absolutely great, enigmatic stuff, that will most likely appeal to fans of epic, forward-thinking, yet cavernous extreme metal. The next big thing? Check this by yourself…
