Final statement from this obscure Finnish black metal act for the first time on vinyl! Originally released over ten years ago via Hammer of Hate Records (CD), the band’s swan song has now been resurrected by Hellthrasher Productions. Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies, the record comes on black and bone white heavyweight 12-inch with high quality artwork. Manufactured under license from our long-time collaborators, KVLT.
“Fans of harsh, wintry Black Metal played in the lo-fi style will lap up every moment of Sielunmessu” (Metal Crypt)
“Sielunmessu is a barrage of Nordic Black Metal riffs and chords that evoke a perfectly grim atmosphere” (Voices From the Darkside)
“the band write their blazing black entrails out in the dust with a particular charm that makes the 35 minutes here a pleasure to sift through, even taken in one lethal dose” (From the Dust Returned)

We are proud to present the second full-length from Norwegian black metal band Gjendød. The follow-up to the acclaimed debut LP ‘Nedstigning’, the album is available now as a jewel case CD with 8-page booklet as well as in digital format.
“I have no hesitancy in saying that Krigsdøger is the band’s best work yet. They continue to demonstrate a powerful talent for channeling contrasting moods of ravaging cruelty and deep despair, but here they’ve raised the impact of the music to near-mythic levels, portraying these dark and thoroughly dramatic sensations in a way that seems unearthly, frequently creating an atmosphere of chilling grandeur or haunting catastrophe.” (NO CLEAN SINGING)
“With pure malevolence and blackened vigilance, these heathens offer up nine new tracks that are every bit as twisted, malicious and atmospherically potent as you would hope for. (…) From beginning to end, Krigsdøger is a great record.” (CADAVER GARDEN)
“..there is absolutely no doubt that “Krigsdøger” is one of the best albums in the genre. Had this album been released 25 years ago, it would surely be a cult classic today.” (BLACK SALVATION)
Krigsdøger, the second full-length from the bloodiest Norwegian black metal duo Gjendød, will be released March 9th on CD and digital formats. You can now stream two preview tracks, pre-order the digital version or add the album to your bandcamp wishlist. Be prepared for their most intense and varied work to date that still retains the band’s distinctive Norse flavour.

Continuing our escapade through the fascinating land of thousand lakes, we are proud to announce the vinyl version of Förgjord‘s 2012 masterpiece ‘Sielunvihollinen’. Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies (200 x black, 100 x milky clear with heavy white splatter), the record will be released late winter / early spring 2019 under license from KVLT / Hammer Of Hate Records. More details to be revealed in the near future. Meanwhile, check out the full album on our bandcamp page.
“The third full-lenght of FÖRGJORD brings forth a new opus of freezing Finnish Black Metal. It’s been 4 long years since their magnificent ‘Ajasta Ikuisuuteen’ album and ‘Sielunvihollinen’, translating as ‘Soul Nemesis’, continues with the same combination of inventive melodies and raw soundscape, accompanied with harsh vocals spitting forth Finnish lyrics of hatred, anti-christianity, lycanthropy, death and the spirit of proud Finnish nationality. Förgjord also brings some new elements to their music with the help of guest musicians’ performance with kantele and synth. The long process of creating ‘Sielunvihollinen’ has definitely been worth the wait and is a definite must for all those bewitched by Förgjord’s previous works as well as for new listeners who enjoy quality Finnish Black Metal in its most cold and shredding form!”
