- Genre: Death Metal
Italian doom/death band Assumption made a great impact in doom/death scene with their 1st full-length album "Absconditus" released in 2018.
Their 1st demo originaly released in 2012 is re-issued as digisleeve-CD format now! As you may guess from their logo, their main influence is mighty diSEMBOWELMENT without doubt.
There are also Pink-FLoyd-esque psychedelic elements in their music. At this time, they used not only deep low growl but also Pestilence/Obituary style hysteric vocal.
Compared to their latter stuffs, the songs are much more death metal.
Anyway, this is the 1st page of the history of this Italian doom/death band!
6 years after they released 3rd album "L'Être et la Nausée", French doom/death master Ataraxie unleash their 4th album "Résignés" into decaying world of doom!
Extremely heavy doomed riffs sinking into abyss, intense death metal part with tremolo riffs and 2-beat/blast drumming, and strong harmoney by 3 guitars. Majestic low frequency echoing in darkness and sorrowful melodies. This is extreme doom/death that meant to be!
2CD in digisleeve with OBI
3rd album of French extreme doom/death. Their previous album "Deceived Idealism" was double CD album, which contained 6 songs.
This album is also double CD, which contains 4 doomed hymns over 90 minutes! Extremely slow suffocating rhythm accompanied by crushing doomed low freqency. Hypnotic minimalistic riffs with eerie harmonies.
Deep growling and hysteric screams. They are still walking on the same doomed path of "Deceived Idealism". They are walking into much darker and bleaker realm of extreme doom/death!

11 years after the release of their 2nd album "The Noise of Time", Hong Kong extreme doom/death master Hyponic finally unleash their 3rd album "前行者" to the doomed land in their 20th anniversary year.
There are a lot of absurdities, injustice in this world of mortal life. This album shows us the vast darkness of our society.
The music on this album is in the same field of extreme doom/death which you can find on their previous album, nihilistic doomed riffs, subtle melancholic melodies, and gloomy atmospheric ambient parts.
Perhaps, funeral doom/death is the easiest word to describe their music, but their unique ambient guitar works and song writing is much more than that. Feel the darkest depth of human absurdities.
3rd album of French doom/death. Solemn and majestic doomed riffs with perfectly controled feedback sounds. Intense death metal riffs with full of aggression.
Carefully arranged clean parts. With the contrast of oppressive heaviness, intensity and tranquility, they deliver 5 epic of doomed death metal!!!

Among the aficionados, HOODED MENACE have quickly become a household name for authenticity and excellence.

Greek kings of black metal SEPTICFLESH's classic second album 'Esoptron' is finally available again!
Infectious but yet pummeling hooks give way to melodic interludes and then suddenly break into heavy passages with tortured, shrieked vocals; 'Esoptron' showcases a young SEPTICFLESH further honing their craft and cementing themselves among the heavy metal elite.
Long regarded as an essential record within the gothic metal world, 'Esoptron' is now fully remixed and remastered and features 3 bonus tracks!
Since their reunion SEPTICFLESH have established themselves as a leading force of symphonic Dark Metal with their critically acclaimed masterpieces “Communion” (2008) and “The Great Mass” (2011).
Yet the Greeks already won a dedicated and strong fan-base in their first incarnation as SEPTIC FLESH.
Produced by former ROTTING CHRIST keyboardist and NEKROMANTIA founder Magus Wampyr Daoloth, their debut full-length “Mystic Places of Dawn” was released in 1994 and soon acquired cult status. All trademark elements of SEPTICFLESH are already present such as their singing guitar sound and even classical influences.
A must have for all fans!
2012 Reissue with new artwork
The Greek legend has finally returned from its undead slumber to unleash brooding visions of much darker times and space unto an unsuspecting world.
SEPTICFLESH have once more renewed and refined all their trademarks: On the top layer stand massive guitar-walls of death sometimes coming close to blackness and often interlaced with intricate technical string-filigree.
Underlining this fierceness with haunting gothic melodies the band has added an epic dimension by including a full classical orchestra. The Philharmonic Orchestra of Prague joins these triumphant compositions with 80 instrumentalists and a choir of 32 singers to stunning effect!
HATE ETERNAL's first new full-length in four years doubles down on their patented, high-velocity assault of dizzying ferocity combined with wide-range dynamics, outstanding songwriting and skull-crushing brutality.
HATE ETERNAL deliver extreme music at the highest level. There can be no doubt that 'Infernus' will be regarded by many as the best death metal record of 2015!

With 'Behold.Total.Rejection', REVENGE have reached a new peak in black violence and raving misanthropy.
The Canadians’ fifth album' is arguably the most fervent release and a manifesto of rejection – rejection of the groundswell of mediocrity within the scene, rejection of compromise as a means of embracing of a wider audience, rejection of the dogma and strictures of religion and the trappings of the feeble social slave. 'Behold.Total.Rejection' is a torrential barrage of relentless animosity.
No scene. No brotherhood. No remorse.
