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 …”

We are proud to present a CD version of the new Paroxsihzem mini-album, originally released in March on 12” vinyl. Available now in standard jewel case CD format.
On their new MLP, Abyss of Excruciating Vexes, they have reached new heights of convulsive sonic violence. -No Clean Singing
If you’re a fan of intense, smothering and down-right intimidating death metal don’t let them slip you by as their music is way too good… enjoy the horrific beauty of Abyss of Excruciating Vexes. -The Lair of Filth
If you are into the deepest, ugliest depths of death metal, Paroxsihzem is most certainly the band for you. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you. -Metal Trenches
Like Portal and Antiversum, Paroxsihzem eschew traditional elements in favor of making sure they put the “extreme” in “extreme music.” Abyss of Excruciating Vexes won’t be for everyone, but the people who love it are gonna really love it. -Metal Sucks
We are proud to announce another excellent addition to our roster: Gjendød – a new mysterious force in Norwegian Black Metal.

The digital version is now available for streaming / download (name-your-price) from bandcamp. Highly recommended for fans of old Norse Black Metal!
„Both terrifying and hallucinatory, ingeniously conceived and expertly performed, Gjendød is a very impressive debut.” – NO CLEAN SINGING
Pennsylvania-based black metal act Chaos Moon will release an extended digipak CD version of latest EP „Amissum” on March 18th through Hellthrasher Productions.
Created and solely instrumentally performed by A. Poole (of Krieg, Martröð, Esoterica, Skáphe, Lithotome) with a little vocal contribution from E. Baker (Manetheren), this new EP captures the band’s trademark, densely-layered black metal sound in its most ethereal form.
Written and recorded between 2012 – 2016, Amissum stands as a collection of tracks that were not intended to be included on any full-length album. Compared to the original version, self-released digitally in September 2015, the CD edition will contain two previously unpublished bonus tracks; one being from the same session as the rest (Resurrection III), the other brand new (Amissum). The cover photo was taken by H.V Lyngdal (Wormlust) and the track listing is as follows:
2. Resurrection I
3. Resurrection II
4. Resurrection III
5. To Transcend The Spine
6. Illusions of Dusk and Dawn (Rerecorded)
Canadian black/death metal act Paroxsihzem will release a new mini-album titled „Abyss of Excruciating Vexes” on March 11th via Hellthrasher Productions. The entire EP is available for streaming below.
Recorded and mixed by band in August 2015 with mastering duties handled by Damian Herring (Horrendous), „Abyss of Excruciating Vexes” serves as a bridge to the group’s next full-length album. The 12” MLP will be available in edition of 250 copies (100 x black and 150 x splatter vinyl).
Paroxsihzem’s guitarist/bassist, Impugnor, comments: „A new direction has been forged. Through violence, chaos, insanity and madness our aim has intensified. A new epitome of madness has been reached. Relentless Torture, Maniacal Hatred, Drug Induced Lunacy and Madness are the focused themes of this release. With the addition of Abyss (Adversarial) on drums, the speed has increased immensely, it is unrelenting, and has a claustrophobic effect.”
„The pseudo war themes, fashionable occultism, and fantasy satanism that run rampant in a scene that grows weaker and more sterile by the day are destroyed. This release is a return to a period where pushing the envelope meant doing so in every way possible, rather than fitting nicely into genres, styles, themes and groups. This is our new directive, be warned, this release is violent, vicious, maniacal and unmerciful. There will be those who appreciate it, but many more who do not, enjoy it or not, this is a reflection of the world, there is no veil or escapism here.”
