The debut EP from Voidspawn and the 4-way split between Gatecreeper, Homewrecker, Outer Heaven and Scorched are shipping now. Voidspawn plays a dark, dissonant style of death metal that should please anyone who enjoys Gorguts, Ulcerate or Ellorsith. Meanwhile, the four bands on the split all bring their own style to classic death metal – just ugly, downtuned madness all around. Both are on CD and can be found in the shop. They are streaming in full on our Bandcamp page, too.
Remaining releases for 2016 will include a second EP from Obscure Evil, a CD reissue of Cemetery Filth’s out-of-print first EP (with plenty of bonus material), and the first full-length from Scorched, titled “Echoes of Dismemberment.” All should go to press in the next couple of months to arrive before the year ends.

You can now pre-order the CD and tape versions of Sewercide’s debut album, “Immortalized in Suffering.” Built on years of battle-hardened evolution into their current death metal sound, and influenced by early Morbid Angel, Gorguts and Immolation, this is one of the most devastating extreme metal albums of the year. Get your copy here. Full-color t-shirts will be added to the shop in the coming weeks as well. This release will start shipping in early to mid-June, just in time for Sewercide’s massive summer tour of the US.
Also, new CD and tape releases from Obscure Evil, Samot and TrenchRot are in stock and shipping now. We are also proud to announce that later this year, a second EP from Obscure Evil will get a CD release from us. More news on that in the months ahead.

Encyrcle’s self-titled debut is also out on CD, and the first 50 orders will include a die-cut logo sticker.

All three releases and the Black Tower shirt packages can be ordered now and ship on or after May 18th.
NEWS – APRIL 16, 2015
New upcoming releases to announce:
– Sadistic Ritual are from Atlanta (my neck of the woods, and where I live, it’s a literal woods) and play basic, balls-out death/thrash. It’s promising Southern metal for fans of Slayer, Kreator, Sepultura and the like. Following a small string of demos and EPs, their new EP “Edge of the Knife” promises to be their best and heaviest material yet. We will release it on CD this year.
– Scorched hail from Delaware and make old school death metal with a somewhat thrashy edge that reminds me of old Unleashed among others. We’ll release their debut self-titled demo on cassette.
– Last but definitely not least, something that’s been in the works a long time is a compilation of old material (the only kind that exists) by Canada’s answer to Morbid Saint and Sadus. And if you’ve never heard Deranged, they absolutely live up to that level of insane energy and riff dementia. The comp will be on CD and is coming as soon as they can put the remastered material together.
