Shamaniacal Essence was recorded between August and October 2016 at Ghost Cave Studio and features artwork by Luciana Nedelea.  Compared to the project’s latest full-length, Pangaea (I, Voidhanger), this EP takes a more raw approach, while maintaining a unique black metal songwriting with lots of twists and turns.

„Another blast of black metal aggression that proves the US can be just as keenly grim as their Scandinavian peers”
-Metal Trenches

„..an instantly addictive psychedelic black metal gem..”

GJENDØD streaming first advance track from upcoming full-length album

On February 24th, Trondheim black metal duo Gjendød will release their masterful new album Nedstigning, the follow-up to last year’s acclaimed debut demo. Invisible Oranges has just premiered the record’s first advance track „Håpet Falmer”. Stream it at this location:

„Returning with Nedstigning, their debut full-length, Gjendød walks further down the snow-covered path into history-minded obscurity. “Håpet Falmer” continues mysterious musicians K and KK’s stylistic fence-treading, balancing their cold, riff-based songwriting with unsettling moments of clattering discord and dime-turn rhythmic changes. The adrenal, savage black metal offered by Gjendød masterfully fuses these two disparate, but still wholly Norse black metal lineages.”

DESOLATE SHRINE’s debut available on vinyl

Hellthrasher Productions is proud to present the long-awaited vinyl release of Desolate Shrine’s debut masterpiece „Tenebrous Towers” (licensed from KVLT).

With a steady output of three full-length albums throughout the first half of the 2010s (the latest two on Dark Descent Records), Finland’s purveyors of chaos and wrath, Desolate Shrine, proved to be one of the most consistently crushing death metal acts, that appeared in the underground scene during the past five years. Originally released in 2011 through Hammer Of Hate, 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 oppressive slow tunes accompanied with atmospheric acoustic sections. The demonic inhuman growlings/screamings of two 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!

Pressing details:
-Heavyweight 180g vinyl
-350g glossy pocket sleeve
-2-page full color lyric insert
-Limited to 500 copies (400 x black + 100 x orange crush)

You can purchase it here: hellthrasher.com/shop/ or here: hellthrasherproductions.bandcamp.com/album/tenebrous-towers 

Broader distribution is on its way.
