Hellthrasher Productions [HELLTHRASHER LV]

Yith - dread [tape cover art]

Release date: February 10th, 2017

Hellthrasher Productions proudly presents the CD version of last year’s excellent new Yith (US) album. Following four well-received demos (self-released between 2011 and 2014), „dread,” the first full-length from yith, is a cold slab of hopeless black/doom that continues the project’s exploration of darkness, fear and grief. With haunting melodies and lyrical inspiration coming from the pages of M.R. James and H.P. Lovecraft, „dread” tries to pull the listener into a bleak abyss of endless horror. After a sold-out cassette edition, the album finally gets a digipak CD release featuring different cover art plus slipcase.

VITRIOL – S/T CD
Hellthrasher Productions [HELLTHRASHER LIV]

Vitriol cover art

Release date: January 27th, 2017

Hellthrasher Productions proudly presents the debut demo of Germany’s VITRIOL – a rumbling lo-fi black/death/doom two-piece from Nürnberg. Originally self-released in July 2016 via hand-assembled tapes (both first and second press sold out), 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, Beherit, Teitanblood, Incantation and Katharsis. Enter the realm of a wretched beast..
„It’s one of the most stunning and stupefying death metal releases I’ve heard in this new year, and I probably won’t hear its equal by year-end (..) Vitriol aren’t the only band in the black/death underground who choose to express themselves through such disturbing and chaotic torrents of sonic abuse. But as you move deeper into the demo, it becomes apparent that Vitriol have far greater ambitions (and talents).” -No Clean Singing

Ecferus - Shamaniacal Essence [cover art]

Release date: January 20th, 2017

Hellthrasher Productions proudly presents an extended CD version of the new ECFERUS EP Shamaniacal Essence. Hailing from Indiana, USA, and influenced by evolutionary anthropology and primitive myth, Ecferus explores the psyche of early humans through a vehicle of exciting and unpredictable black metal. Producing seven releases in under two years, Ecferus’ sole member, Alp, has kept a prolific pace while exploring different musical approaches each time. Self-released digitally two months ago, his latest opus Shamaniacal Essence is the destruction of knowing; an induced psychosis purposed as the mental devolution into animal primality. 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. Available now as a jewel case CD with previously unreleased bonus track „Lobotomization Portal Ascent”. Artwork by Luciana Nedelea.

DESOLATE SHRINE – Tenebrous Towers 12” LP
Hellthrasher Productions [HELLTHRASHER LP XV]

11209376_1067814129901474_774717598464693535_n

Release date: November 29th, 2016

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!

RITUAL CHAMBER – The Pits of Tentacled Screams CD
Hellthrasher Productions [HELLTHRASHER XXXVIII]

Release date: April 11th, 2015

Ritual Chamber is the most recent project of the prolific Dario J. Derna (aka Numinas) who is most well known for his work with Krohm and Infester among the many other entries on his résumé (Vetus Obscurum, Drawn and Quartered, Evoken, and Funebrarum among others). This demo, entitled “The Pits of Tentacled Screams,” is the first Ritual Chamber release and features Derna on all instruments. Ominous and oppressive, this demo reeks of the glorious stench of cadaverine. Amid the glut of Death Metal releases over the past decade, Ritual Chamber stands out in its ability to conjure a melancholic aura while retaining the intensity and focused precision of classic Death Metal. This is due, no doubt, to the nearly 25 years that Derna has dedicated to honing his skills in playing some of the most evocative Death and Black Metal produced in the United States. The quality of this demo suggests that, as this project continues to mature, Ritual Chamber may be the most effective of Derna’s many endeavors.

strigaskór nr 42 - armadillo cover art

Release date: March 27th, 2015

Strigaskór nr 42 is 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 avant-garde 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 out on March 27th 2015 via Hellthrasher Productions. The band’s current incarnation draws its influences from such acts as Voivod, Primus, Madness and Wire, while remaining a unique and colorful fusion of various styles from industrial metal through noise rock to twisted punk.

With Vesper Entropia is detaching itself from its post-metal origins to explore the depths of black metal blasts accompanied with post-rock sensitivity and etherealness of shoegaze, creating a genuine, refreshing soundscape not unlike that of Altar of Plagues, Krallice, Agalloch and Wolves in the Throne Room. Jakub Mańkowski, a Fryderyk prize nominee and producer of Behemoth, Blindead and Obscure Sphinx was the sound engineer responsible for the Vesper’s sound. The visuals were created by Marcin Gadomski from Upgrade Design Studio. Originally self-released by the band on CD in February 2013, the album is now available on black vinyl in an edition of 300 copies, coming in a gatefold sleeve with a two-sided lyric insert. All songs were carefully re-mastered by Kuba Mańkowski to reach their full potential and sonic perfection. Let’s drown in this ocean of obscure beauty!

CARPE NOCTEM – In Terra Profugus 12” LP
Hellthrasher Productions [HELLTHRASHER LP VII]

Release date: August 5th, 2014

Raw, Chaotic and Apocalyptic Black Metal soundscape combined with magic & obscure Icelandic lyrics. In Terra Profugus is a concept album about an ethereal journey within and without the self, exploring concepts of life, death and the nature of evil. It is about overcoming and reaching understanding through strife and hardship, about self-flagellation of the soul. The album title calls upon Cain’s journey into the wasteland of Nod, the self-made exile from God’s creation. Imagery from nature and light references to Nordic myth permeate the text, which is both vivid and esoteric in description. Originally released on CD in September 2013 through Code666 , the album was re-issued on 12” LP in an edition of 300 black copies coming in a jacket sleeve with 8-page A5 booklet.

Vinyl treatment of the critically acclaimed Dark Descent release. Psychologically torturing, dark, chaotic Canadian Black/Death Metal with a unique, suffocating atmosphere. Limited edition of 400 black and 100 blue-splattered copies in a beautiful, glossy gatefold sleeve. Formed in 2007, Paroxsihzem puts forth a harsh, demented and atmospheric form of Black/Death metal. Their debut album offers production that gives a very suffocating and nauseating feeling to their music which is only appropriate for the type of themes and inspiration used. There is no specific area of interest as history,philosophy, psychology and suicide are all touched upon as inspirational elements. The relation between all these is to reach the darkest, non-fictional embodiment of humanity, no spiritual, fictional or delusional inspirations used, only tangible events that convey a much more brutal and contorted view of humanity allowing for a closer association to the reality of existence. Each song in and of itself is unique, ranging from doomy and atmospheric, to chaotic and hateful, this is to help convey the insanity within humanity by utilizing a variety of powerful elements within the music.

Release date: April 26th, 2012

Malfeitor is a 3-piece band consisting of veterans from death metal genre. Their beginnings are rooted in early 90s when the band played some gigs, but didn’t release any official demos. Moberg and Perkkila have met again in 2007 as part of Blood Mortized with Mattias Borgh (Crypt of Kerberos, Embrio, Arcana) and Anders Biazzi (Amon Amarth, Pathalog, Scum) in line-up and soon released very well-received self-titled debut.

In the meantime Perkkila and Björkenfjäll collaborated on a side-project called Birch Mountain. In 2011 Malfeitor recorded its first demo „To Hell, Farewell”, officially released as part of the split with Birch Mountain (CD, Hellthrasher Prod.). In early 2012 the band started working on a debut full-length album „Dum Morior Orior” and after a few months spent in studio the album is finally out on CD/Digi through Hellthrasher Productions!
