Rites of Thy Degringolade – The Universe in Three Parts TAPE – Nuclear War Now! Productions

One-song demo to rule all.

folder

The Canadian cult does the work with just one song!

The black/death band Rites of Thy Degringolade recorded and released this demo originally in 2016 but now it’s being re-released by NWN! In tape.

The only song is a 7-minute muddy track with the same name where some instruments are deliberately put in the background, while others (the drum rides for example) have a crystal clear sound.

The rule here is of a chaotic nature, but the first 100 seconds are made of mid-tempo “intro” varying the tones, causing an ominous confusion until it flares up to an uncontrolled sound comprised of fast drums and topsy-turvy bellows (albeit with some pattern along the way if listened with attention)

This tape is an essential item to all die-hards and followers of ROTD.

The Universe in Three Parts is out now in tape on Nuclear war Now!

Helmut from Austrian Black Metal Belphegor attacked in Russia.

Helmut was spat on by an allegedly an Orthodox fanatic at a Russian airport.

Helmut, the vocalist of the Austrian Black death metal band Belphegor was attacked and spat on at the Russian airport Pulkovo in St. Petersburg as the band arrived for two shows in Russia.

The name of the attacker as it’s circulating in media is Vitali Milonova Anatoly Artyukhov. According to some resources Mr. Artyukhov was “provoked” by Helmut which seems improbable. the fact is that Russia is no safe place for extreme bands. The ones who lose are always the Russian fans, and I’m sure that bands love Russia and it would be really sweet if fanatics stop attacking extreme metal bands in the country. See the images that are circulating. I hope that Belphegor has a really good time with Russian fans despite this sad incident. The band is going to play with Nile. The show in St. Petersburg was yesterday. According to their official page on Facebook they have more three shows in the country.

STILLBORN – Testimonio de Bautismo – Godz Ov War Productions

Warlike Blackened Death Metal.

stillborn_cover

Impure Death/Black Metal is what Stillborn is. The band’s clear influences are Sarcófago, Blasphemy and the likes so expect waves of brutal and uncompromising satanic sounds.

The first tracks are Martwo urodzony – rozdział trzeci, Ancykryst and Upiór. While the ears struggle a little bit to get used to the true production, soon the eruption of pure blasphemy starts to appear in the first two tracks and it’s finally clear in the latter and they are not here for jokes: Rusty riffs, mid to fast tempo, minimum change of phrases, quasi non-existent change of metrics, a heavy shower of blast beats and cutthroat attitude.

Satanic they start, satanic they continue: Człowiekowstręt is where all hells break loose, the ignominious waves of pure metal of hell takes over the whole place at once and when the time is ripe for Odezwa, the crescendo of old school, first wave of black metal music is even more powerful, organic and impure: they sound legit because they are legit.

Obłęd is EVEN truer, the riffs from beyond and the drumming from hell goes until the middle of the song and the sung part finally appears. But the song is mostly instrumental.

Modlitwa poganina shows a “thrash” sound, just like Tormentor, Bulldozer or Kat, but soon they return to what they started which is black and death metal.

Burst Command Til War is a Sodom cover, a perfect cover, ten times faster. Arrrgghhh!

The last track Apocalyptic Hymn of Satanic Warriors is an instrumental piece that sounds like a filler.

Stillborn is already a veteran band, but I still remember Los asesinos del sur which was a good album. But Testimonio de Bautismo is tenfold better. Truer, crueler, eviler, harsher. My weapon of choice in 2016 when it comes to bestial black death metal! Great opvs!

Testimonio de Bautismo is out now on Godz Ov War Productions

Jim Konya Dies After A Stroke

Konya taken off life support on 10/07/2015

12122828_10205608217152860_3704736914187359425_n

I’m devastated to say here in these pages that another warrior of HEAVY METAL pantheon has gone from this Earth to the other side. Jim Konya (aka Jim Sadist), the drummer of the death/black metal outfit Nunslaughter was taken off life support this morning, allegedly at 7:10 (local time)  from a stroke suffered several weeks ago. 

Nunslaughter is one of my favorite death metal outfits from US and Konya had a vital role in the development of the band. 

More details will be posted in the Nunslaughter page on Facebook, so keep checking for more details. https://www.facebook.com/NUNSLAUGHTER

Dark Souls United wishes comfort to Konya’s family, and hoping that this is not the end for Nunslaughter, but a new beginning anytime soon…

Pentagram (Chile) / Unaussprechlichen Kulten – Ritual Human Slaughter / La Mujer El Diablo y El Permiso de Dios – Iron Bonehead

Classic South American bands join satanic forces!

12042884_1150798504934607_2970397742779711044_n

Pentagram Chile (for those who don’t know the current spelling is exactly that for obvious reasons) and their countrymen Unaussprechlichen Kulten (this name is unpronounceable, got it? Got it?) are now cohorts in this newest split.

Sectarian death metal with hints of satanic might for sectarian headbangers, this split is melting my face off!

Pentagram Chile starts with the snail-paced Ritual Human Sacrifice, classic as the band itself, a true cult of the occult. The sound is very palatable to old-timers, and then the music goes to a very packed death metal in the 1980’s and 1980’s way, no modernity allowable here! Classic riffs, spectacular solo that comes from nearby cemetery and the vocals are retched in an unremitting style with no ancillary parts. This is the extreme death metal: not fast, not technical, but true to the code of the elders.

Unaussprechlichen Kulten and its ineffable (GOT IT? GOT IT?) death metal is more satanic in approach near European and North American bands. The brutality is unspeakable (sorry this was the last one, I couldn’t help myself) the sound is ultra heavy and muddy and the velocity is outta sight.

This is one of the best splits of the year, get it or go die. Bow down to South American EVIL!

Ritual Human Slaughter / La Mujer, El Diablo y El Permiso de Dios is out N.O.W. on  Iron Bonehead

TEMPLE OF BAAL – Mysterium – Agonia Records

Brutal Black Metal never got so disgraceful.

Cover-Mysterium

France and their killer bands: Temple of Baal surpasses anything from that country. What a satanic manifestation in the form of maelstrom of pure evilness.

This is what I call INCORRUPTIBLE metal: done with one aim  that is to praise the lord Satan himself.

The songs are long and strident. The approach is devastating and it gives no quarter for the listener. Seriously, neighbors asked me to turn off the sound while I was listening to this opvs for consideration… I managed to destruct the place with Temple of Baal.

This fifth full length is ritualistic and never ceases to amuse the listener of pure death metal cult. Death Black cult must I say.

There is no song, (NEVER, EVER) that has a kind of pause, or intermission, this is just attack upon attack but I must highlight the song Hosanna which is truly devastating and razes the place to the ground.

Another one that took me aback was the track Black Redeeming Flame with an impossible-to-replicate drumming from depths of very hell.

The vocals in the fastest track Holy Art Thou appears in the form of invocations inside a burning abyss.

Mysterium is not for the faint of heart. It’s not for wannabe black metallers, It’s not for depressive gay heads.

This is the archetype of destruction and multifarious anathema. Baal-zebuth is happy in hell.

Mysterium  will be released next Octover 2nd on Agonia Records. Order NOW!

Deiphago – Into The Eye Of Satan (Cd, Lp, Tape) – Hells Headbangers

The Filipino Antichrists are attacking over again.

Deiphago---Into-The-Eye-of-Satan---medresx300

If the cult of Deiphago is new to you, then fuck off. This band is the epitome of war blackened death metal! They are in the game more than twenty years and their last album released three years ago called Satan Alpha Omega was one of the best releases of that year. I know. I reviewed it. I bought the CD and the tee…

So there’s no need to say that the cult of Filipino Evil is one of my faves, a cult as great as Blasphemy or Sarcófago. This band is the tits!

Into The Eye Of Satan is no different. They once again attack with priority to aim and destroy the human race with the most toxic metal ever played on the face of the Earth!

I have to agree that they are truly successful in this satanic task, for the album is a massive cauldron of black mass, pure cryptic evil for the glory of the gods of old! Apolaki was invoked from its inner tomb to bring war on this cosmos.

This anticosmic approach can be found in tracks such as Evil and Adverse and Bloodbath Of Genocide with cute titles that would make Satan himself die of fear! The sound is a curtain of fire that nukes the eardrums of false headbangers. For those, this kind of death black tunes get one’s wires crossed!

Deiphago shows that they are the head honchos of brutal: (6 X 6 X 6) / 3 (what a nice song’s name!) and Serpentine Anti-World are the inverted cult of nature, set off to eliminate the whole creation and to keep one’s nose to the grindstone in order to put order into the total chaos.

There are more songs though, but it’s useless to talk about the harm they may cause. Listen to it by yourself, if you have the balls. If you don’t, get a gun and kill yourself. No one will miss you anyway.

 Into The Eye Of Satan (Cd, Lp, Tape) is out now on Hells Headbangers
