We are proud to announce the signing of Germany’s VITRIOL – a rumbling lo-fi black/death/doom two-piece from Nürnberg. Their crushing debut demo will soon be released on CD through Hellthrasher Productions.
Originally self-released last month on tape (first press out of print), the demo features 25 minutes of cryptic metal carnage with lyrical themes centered around mysteries, the unknown and the outer regions of the human cosmos. Music-wise Vitriol is settled somewhere between Swallowed, Incantation, Beherit, Teitanblood or Katharsis.
Check out two preview tracks on bandcamp. Full stream to follow soon. Obscure Death Metal Cult!
We are proud to announce that Icelandic Black Metal act Endalok has joined our ranks to release its upcoming debut demo ‚Englaryk’ in digipak CD format.
Hailing from the currently-hot Icelandic black metal scene, ENDALOK bear many of the same immersive traits as their established countrymen, but on evidence of their opening Englaryk salvo, the secret-so-far entity exhibits a startling uniqueness that belies its young years as a band. Desolate and yet majestic in a manner not usually associated with such an appellation, Englaryk is a penetrating first taste of ENDALOK.
To be released this Autumn in conspiracy with Signal Rex, which will handle the cassette and vinyl versions.

Finally on vinyl – 1st album of this finnish band that plays a crushingly heavy type of Death Metal with a dark and eerie atmosphere inspired by bands like ABHORRENCE (fin), BOLT THROWER, ASPHYX, DERKETA, RIPPIKOULU, GRAVE, INCANTATION, ROTTREVORE… and in general getting inspiration from 90’s Death Metal.
Trondheim, Norway-based black metal duo Gjendød released a CD version of the group’s self-titled debut on June 24th, 2016 through Hellthrasher Productions.
With 20 minutes of fierce and memorable Norse black metal in the classic mold, Gjendød evokes the aura of 90s legends (Mayhem, Burzum, Ulver), while giving a nod to the local (Trondheim-based) acts such as Thorns and early Manes. Recorded in January 2016, the material saw its tape release in April 2016 (Dark Than Black Records) and now gets a digipak CD reissue. Stream it in full below:
Four years in the making, IN CRONIAN HOUR is the long-awaited collaborative split 7 inch between Canadian occult lunatics Mitochondrion and hyperblasting sorcerers Auroch. Here stands 11 minutes of ritual death metal united in voice, word, and deed in all aspects! Each song carries the same essence diverged: literally, a single sheet of lyrics interpreted by each band and shaped into two unique pieces. What awaits is a whirlwind of insanity spiraling into a humming void of bliss. This meticulous path can be traced throughout the work, with members of the greater inner Covenant contributing to both tracks. A complete coagulation of forces.
Dark Descent Records and Hellthrasher Productions are responsible for unleashing this death metal talisman unto the masses, in 2 unique coloured vinyl formats. All visual manifestation impeccably crafted by Cold Poison. Once again mastering duties performed by Colin Marston at Thousand Caves studio. May this work stand as a gilded Sickle in the heart man!
“In Cronian Hour leaden words will be sown and gilded words will be reaped …”
