UK ambient death metal duo Vorage will release the CD version of its 2014 self-titled debut EP on June 30th 2015 via Hellthrasher Productions.
Vorage is a mysterious entity, created and solely instrumentally performed by SHEOL’s drummer A.H.S. with vocals provided by Al Xul. Originally issued on tape through Exitium Productions (now sold out), the band’s debut output features 21 minutes of chaotic, swirling blackened death metal with murky, reverb-soaked production, reminiscent of Portal, Impetuous Ritual and Abyssal. The artwork for both cassette and CD editions was made by Grave IX Design.

Pre-order the CD version:
US-based death metallers Ectovoid have shared the first single off their forthcoming second full-length album „Dark Abstraction”, which is due out this Summer through Hellthrasher Productions. Listen to the new song „The Expanse Between Slumber and Death” at this location:
„Dark Abstraction” is the follow-up to the band’s 2012 debut, “Fractured in the Timeless Abyss”, and sees the U.S. outfit expand and develop their sound in all areas while remaining true to the morbid and punishing death metal of their roots. Delving into the darkest depths of the mind, perception, and existential dread, the eight songs that make up “Dark Abstraction” embrace and glorify the cryptic emptiness and terrifying mysteries that encompass and pervade all aspects of human reality, with music that balances atmosphere and depth with raw energy and power.
Written collectively by the band’s original line-up, the album was recorded / mixed between 2014-2015 by Joshua Freemon at Dead Sounds Studios and mastered by Damian Herring (Horrendous) at Subterranean Watchtower Studios. More details, including the actual release date, full track-listing and second advance track, are to be revealed throughout the month. Watch the album teaser:
Polish death metal act Embrional has premiered an official music video for the song „Madman’s Curse”, taken from the band’s 2015 sophomore album „The Devil Inside”. The clip was directed, shot and edited by Sebastian ‚Semen’ Turkowski. Watch it below:
„The Devil Inside” was released on CD, cassette tape and limited CD via Old Temple and Godz ov War / Third Eye Temple, respectively, gaining considerable critical acclaim throughout the underground metal scene. The album’s vinyl version is currently being manufactured and is due out this coming August via Hellthrasher Productions. The LP will be available in an edition of 250 copies, including a limited run of 100 red-splattered pieces, enhanced with poster flags.
Third exciting announcement in a row – a UK ambient death metal duo Vorage has joined our roster for the CD release of its 2014 self-titled debut demo, that was previously issued on tape via Exitium Prods.
Vorage is a mysterious death metal entity, created and solely instrumentally performed by SHEOL’s drummer A.H.S. with vocals provided by Al Xul. This is chaotic, churning maelstrom of Death Metal darkness that will surely appeal to those who appreciate the sound of Portal, Mitochondrion, Impetuous Ritual, Antediluvian and Abyssal.
Let it get you through the infinite spheres of death’s black womb…

It’s a great pleasure for us to announce that we will be handling the official LP & CD reissues of Desolate Shrine’s debut album „Tenebrous Towers”, originally released on CD in 2011 through Hammer Of Hate Records (and licensed by us from the current owner of its catalogue – KVLT). Both formats should be available for purchase later this year. Further info will be shared once all details are worked out!
Desolate Shrine is one of the finest contemporary underground death metal acts, with a relatively small yet strong output of three amazing full-length albums to date, the latest two on Dark Descent Records. Their debut effort, Tenebrous Towers opened up the crushing mysticism of DESOLATE SHRINE with a truly remarkable form of possessed, blackened death metal. Executed with skill and worship, the heaviness of Tenebrous Towers comes not only from speed but the crushing mid-tempo and oppressing slow tunes accompanied with atmospheric acoustic sections. The demonic inhuman growlings/screamings of the 2 vocalists not only interpret the in-depth lyrics but add more hell to the overwhelming atmosphere. Properly expressed with dynamic sounds, the debut album of Desolate Shrine is not to be missed!
US-based one-man death metal act Ritual Chamber released the CD version of its debut demonstration The Pits Of Tentacled Screams on April 11th 2015 through Hellthrasher Productions.
Ritual Chamber is the most recent project of the prolific Dario J. Derna (aka Numinas), most well-known for his work with the legendary trio Infester, among the many other entries on his résumé (Krohm, Evoken, Funebrarum, Drawn and Quartered). The Pits Of Tentacled Screams features five brand new tracks of dark and cavernous death metal that conjures a melancholic aura while retaining the intensity and focused precision of classic death metal.
Originally self-released digitally in November 2013 (and re-released on tape in 2014 via NWN!), the album is now available in a limited jewel-case CD edition.
“The Dawning Of A New Inversion”
“Glorious Curse Of Almighty Death”
“A Thermonuclear Fate”
