SUFFOCATION's comeback album from 2004 is a pulverizing exercise in brutality!
First time on vinyl in almost 15 years!
Masterfully controlled yet frighteningly intense, Souls To Deny is a truly devastating display of technical death metal.
Maniacally complex lead and rhythm guitar acrobatics intermix with dizzyingly proficient drum work, creating complex, savage riff collages.
Often copied but never duplicated, SUFFOCATION remains at once intricately technical and immaculately heavy! Includes Digital Download
Arkansas' backwoods doomsayers RWAKE awaken from their slumber and unleash their long-awaited new album Rest. Their first new material in over 4 years, Rest is less a set of songs than a perpetually evolving, deeply emotional set of missives heralding the end of times. Rest is nothing short of epic, and not only one of 2011?s finest albums but one of the finest progressive/doom/sludge metal records ever.
Sonoran Sun (Translucent Yellow) LP
Arizona newcomers GATECREEPER deliver 9 monstrous songs of low-end, old-school death metal on their savage debut album Sonoran Depravation. Having devastated the underground since their formation less than three years ago, GATECREEPER now unleash their first full-length, produced by Ryan Bram at Homewrecker Studios and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, Black Breath) at GodCity Studios. Sonoran Depravation tears and chugs through 30+ minutes of crusty, doom-soaked death metal at its most infectious and uncompromising with a massive sound that calls to mind the classic Swedish buzz-saw attack of Dismember and Grave mixed with the impeccable groove of Obituary and Bolt Thrower.
Death Revenge Death Revenge
Death metal powerhouse Dying Fetus return with their long-awaited new record War of Attrition.
Masterminded by guitarist/vocalist John Gallagher and his hand picked kill-team, War of Attrition advances the band's devastating assault and destroys everything in its path. From the first song to the last, the patented 'Fetus combination of punishing slam riffs, frenzied guitar work, and utterly savage dual-vocal assault and overpowers the listener. War of Attrition reaches an altogether new and focused level of brutality for Dying Fetus, and expands and cements the legendary status of this renowned US metal institution.
Retaining the vicious, dual-vocal attack and slamming grooves that have become their trademark, Dying Fetus' Stop at Nothing is a savage return-to-form by one of the most influential bands in death metal. Intensity unparalleled, and musical power unrivaled, Dying Fetus are the leaders of the new generation in extreme music.
DEATH's landmark Spiritual Healing record is nothing short of genre-defining.
Originally released in 1990, Spiritual Healing marked a new turn in the DEATH discography, one which ushered in cleaner production, a new level of boundary pushing musicianship and songwriting skills that were previously unimaginable from a metal band.
Spiritual Healing sets the standard for riffs, insane time changes and of course mainman Chuck Schuldiner's masterful guitar solos.
Now reissued as a double CD housed in a deluxe packaging featuring brand new liner notes from DEATH players James Murphy and Terry Butler, Chuck's sister Beth and Michael Poulsen, Disc 1 features a completely new remaster of the original album and Disc 2 contains 16 previously unreleased rehearsal, outtakes and studio instrumentals.
DEATH's legendary 1987 debut Scream Bloody Gore is more than just an untouchable album - upon its release, it was positively genre-creating.
Scream Bloody Gore founded the quintessential death metal sound, with more tormented riffs, screams, and leads than the world had ever imagined, and established Chuck Schuldiner's inimitable phrasing and songwriting style as the most singular voice in the burgeoning genre. Today, the album is viewed unanimously as one of the all-time most important cornerstones of death metal.
2xCD contains 50 minutes of previously unheard and unreleased material from the original Scream Bloody Gore Florida recording sessions and rehearsal material from August 1986.
DEATH, the heavy metal institution founded, realized, and helmed by legendary guitarist Chuck Schuldiner, released its legendary fourth studio album Human ('91) to massive worldwide critical acclaim.
The album's complex and progressive music and introspective lyrics marked a massive stylistic change away from the more primitive early material for the group, and Human went on to become one of the most influential metal records in the history of the genre. Now remixed under the watchful eye of longtime DEATH producer Jim Morris, Human 2011 represents the fully-realized version of this epic album.
DEATH's immensely influential second album Leprosy originally released in 1988 was a pioneering album, building upon the thrash sounds of Metallica and Slayer but adding a previously unheard level of raw extremity. These songs are the roots of an entire genre: death metal. While this was only the second record DEATH release, it immediately cemented them as heavy metal icons.
Deluxe limited edition one time pressing of DEATH’s legendary second album, featuring expanded packaging and a bonus LP featuring 10 Leprosy rehearsal recordings!
