“It doesn’t get more blasphemous than this.”
That’s BEHEMOTH mastermind Nergal talking about the title of the band’s 11th and latest album, »I Loved You At Your Darkest«. While it certainly seems an unlikely title for a black metal band—especially one that called their last album »The Satanist«—its origin might surprise you even more than the words themselves. “It’s a verse from the Bible,” Nergal reveals. “It’s actually a quote from Jesus Christ himself. For BEHEMOTH to use it as the basis of our record, it’s sacrilege to the extreme.”
Behemoth – The Satanist - 2LP
“»The Satanist« is magic.
It’s dangerous. It’s adventurous, and it’s organic,” states Nergal, the driving force behind BEHEMOTH since their inception in 1991, and brief exposure to the band’s tenth album more than supports this statement.
While instantly recognizable as the work of the Polish blackened death quartet it takes their sound in previously unimagined and riveting directions.
A writhing, densely layered, brutally violent and sinister record, it is quite unlike anything ever unleashed within the canon of heavy music.
As such it demands attention, offering ever greater sonic and emotional depths with every listen.

Highly anticipated new album by AUTUMNBLAZE, combining the elements of post-rock, trip hop and singer-songwriter to a unique and experimental style, dressing every heavy sound into poetic darkness.
11 songs recorded in april 2008. furious ripping fast grindcore with plenty of mosh-destruction thrash metal riffs. Kind of like AGATHOCLES or TERRORIZER mixed with KREATOR and RAZOR.
CD contains 6 CD only tracks and 7 live eruptions.
Symbology of Shelter sees ever more dissonant black metal influences seeping into Noise Trail Immersion's chaotic music, balanced out by traces of post-metal utilized to make the group's compositions more dynamic and versatile.
Noise Trail Immersion thrives on fusing chaos and calm in an emotionally rousing manner both mournful and vitriolic throughout Symbology of Shelter. The album kicks off knee deep in disgust and aggression, seething endlessly on cuts such as opener "Mirroring", while showcasing an ambitious side and somber vibes of an entirely different nature on the album’s double dose of two-part songs, beginning with "Repulsion and Escapism Parts I and II", then returning later on the album to the journey contained between “The Empty Earth I” and “The Empty Earth II”.
Less than four short years into their career, Death Metal Defenders of the Old GRUESOME (featuring current and former members of Exhumed, Possessed, Malevolent Creation, etc.) have quickly made a name for themselves as not just torchbearers of DEATH’s eternal legacy but as one of the most heralded bands in the scene today.
After releasing a pair of acclaimed EPs, GRUESOME return with their second full-length sermon, Twisted Prayers.
Twisted Prayers follows DEATH’s paradigm shift during the Spiritual Healing era, incorporating more cerebral, melodic instrumentation with elements of thrash and thought-provoking, socially conscious lyrics.
High Reeper is back with their second release Higher Reeper and they aren’t fucking around. The sound and smell of leather, weed and death now has a hint of Campari and cocaine to color all eight tracks. With the addition of their new drummer Justin Di Pinto, High Reeper has managed to focus their sound and expand it at the same time. The record is darker and heavier than their first offering with guitars that crush you like a tank and lyrics that paint a picture of the world nearing its end.
Six panel digipack limited to 300 copies.
Choosing the term "depressive dark rock" to describe themselves doesn't do Counting Hours enough justice as the debut album from this Finnish five-piece not only links their sound to game-changing acts such as Katatonia, Paradise Lost and October Tide but succeeds on evoking the lost feeling of the 90s dark and gothic music scene, mainly because part of what you get to hear on their fresh and intriguing 2018 demo was written during that era, embodying the original atmosphere and vulnerability only a band from those times could materialize.
Their debut album "The Will" a truly exciting combination of varying elements brimming with dark-stained riffs and the melancholic yet powerful vocals of The Chant's Ilpo Paasela.

ZAUM caught the ear of I Hate with a truly impressive sound that (to us at least) combines the foreboding darkness of The Wounded Kings, with the meditative, oriental disposition of Om and Bong - thickly entwined in singular aural mysticism and creativity that stimulates the imagination at all times. Conceptually driven by a deep-seated fascination with the ancient Middle East and an overall presentation that sustains a demand for deeper reflection, it's only natural and appropriate that ZAUM dubbed their music style 'Middle Eastern mantra doom'.
First album from the Stoner/Sludge band from Belarus.
Self released in 2013.
Limited edition colored vinyl, heavy 380g Gatefold Cover, comes with a bandcamp download code.
'Hadal Ascending' is the fourth full-length album of German death metal masters ICHOR. The album links thematically to the bands’ albums 'Benthic Horizon' and 'Depths'.
The fictional story of a devastated and hate-filled deep-sea world full of creatures and mystical beings continues: Human warriors reached the hadal-level in the deep sea and fight a bitter war against gorgons and creatures of the depths.
To implore transcendent energies, rituals are held during the slaughter.The demon “Zaan” wakes and feeds on the blood of the warriors. He opens the portal to other worlds and as leader of gorgons and creatures, he leads them through the portal into the empire of stars and planets.
One of the first wave of American black metal bands, PROFANATICA have purveyed primeval blasphemy on nigh for three decades. 'Rotting Incarnation of God' vomits forth a most vulgar strain of black metal ejaculate. Led by founder Paul Ledney, the trio desecrate everything sacred with a ferocious stream of chainsaw guitars and relentless battery. PROFANATICA’s latest chapter is nothing short of blasphemous perversions, sacrilegious incantations, and furious, unrelenting black metal. The kings of USBM are back to bless you with another assault of unholy hellfire.
Golden cassette LTD to 125 copies
The Italian psych-fuzz trio Black Rainbows sound like the bastard offspring of 70's hard-rock swagger and 90's stoner-groove; hints of Black Sabbath, MC5 and Hawkwind fuse with liberal pinches of Monster Magnet and Fu Manchu. Since 2007 the band have released three full-length albums, coupled with split releases with bands such as White Hills, Naam and Farflung, and finally the recently highly acclaimed Holy Moon Ep. They have also been regulars on stages across the world having now performed over 300 gigs.
Limited to 300 copies, only sold on the band's Russian tour
