Italian grindcore legends CRIPPLE BASTARDS celebrate 30 years of misanthropic extremity with their seventh full-length album La Fine Cresce Da Dentro (Meaning “The End Is Growing From Within”). Recorded at the legendary Fredman Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (At The Gates, Dark Tranquility), La Fine Cresce Da Dentro is eighteen tracks of inconceivable speed and brutality surpassing even their previous work. Over three decades in, CRIPPLE BASTARDS are showing no signs of slowing down and continue to destroy unsuspecting eardrums with hate-filled, grind punk chaos!
CONTROL DENIED, the progressive heavy metal brainchild of legendary guitarist Chuck Schuldiner, released its first and only album The Fragile Art of Existence ('99) to massive critical acclaim. The Fragile Art of Existence is the sound of traditional metal stepping into a new century; an album where the experiences and inspirations of trail-blazing, world-class musicians coalesced under the watchful eye of one of the genre's master craftsmen. Remastered, repackaged and featuring over an hour of previously unreleased material (extra tracks and early demos), this is the definitive edition of this timeless classic.
In the long Scandinavian winter nights of the 1990s, the harshness of (melodic) death was combined with the icy attitude of black metal and created a suffocating darkness that has lasted until today. The soul of this musical fusion lives on in the passionate songwriting of THE SPIRIT, and with its determination and utter elegance »Sounds From The Vortex« evokes an atmosphere hailing right from the Scandinavian tombs.
The artistic handwriting behind the atmospheric cover is unmistakable though, as it comes from the Romanian metal artwork guru Costin Chioreanu.

Formed by Victor Love (Dope Stars Inc.) and Noras Blake (Spineflesh/Edenyzed), Epochate is a look at the eternal struggle generated by thought and power. Their debut album, Chronicles Of A Dying Era, is a mix of industrial rock with heavy and concrete orchestrations, cutting edge guitars and killer vocals. Delivering a sound that has yet to be explored, the concept album brings about an entirely new dimension of musical experience. Centering round the decline of mankind, Chronicles Of A Dying Era is a report of the attempts, defeats and victories of the human race through an age of wars, violence and arrogance. The strength of music, thoughts and ideals spawned a visually stunning 24 page booklet!
