ABOMINATION (US, Chicago) – Demos LP DOOMENTIA
One of many bands featuring PAUL SPECKMANN. These two demo recording from 1988 + 1999 are among his best work! Raw Death Metal with a slight punk edge, not that far from DEATH STRIKE – "Fuckin' Death", style wise, in fact! Old school Death created long before the term was perpetuated!
AGRESSOR (BRA) – Kill or Die LP DIES IRAE
Raw Brazilian Thrash/speed from 1988 previously only available on tape, given the vinyl-treatment it deserves! Fans of VIKING, KUBLAI KHAN/ANTHARES(Bra) must worship this!

Ultra heavy and cavernous doom/death. Strongly recommended to fans of Evoken, Asunder, Indesinence and DISEMBOWELMENT.

ATARAXIE - Anhédonie 2LP OSTRA
The second album from the Frenchmen. Essential release for people into ASUNDER, WORSHIP, EVOKEN etc. Slow, heavy Doom/Death/Funeral the way it was meant to sound! Strongly recommended!

BATTERING RAM (BEL) – Back Through The Main Gate LP HIGH ROLLER/METALEROS
Classic Belgian 80s Heavy/Speed Metal, both their demos collected onto vinyl with a 4 pages insert full of info, old pictures etc. Comes with all the enjoyable charm of the era. The first demo leans towards the first two Running Wild-albums (prior to the pirate-image), while the 2nd is more comparable to Iron Angel, Vectom, Living Death etc. Very interesting stuff!
BEDEMON – Symphony of Shadows DLP SVART
Finally the long awaited debut album is here and it does not disappoint! Genuine article in the field of 70's doom since the members are from that era and haven't lost the touch. Any self-respecting fan of Black Sabbath, Pentagram and Bedemon's own Child of Darkness needs this, pronto!
BEHERIT – Morbid Blasphemy LP
The 1st and 2nd cult demo from BEHERIT collected on vinyl – "Seventh Blasphemy" 1990 + "Morbid Rehearsal"-demo 1990. As bonus; 5 tracks recorded live in Nokia, Finland 1991! Classic Black metal!
BETHLEHEM - Dictius Te Necare Gatefold-LP OSTRA RECS

CARPATHIAN FOREST – Strange Old Brew LP SVART
The 2nd full-length (-2000) from the Norwegian Black Metal legends, re-issued with one bonus track.
COFFINS - Mortuary in Darkness Double-LP OSMOSE
The spirit of HELLHAMMER is very present in this Japanese band's sludgy metal. Throw in (more than) a hint of AUTOPSY around "Mental Funeral" and a tad of AMEBIX and you know what to expect. Great stuff! Album # 1.
COFFINS – The other side of blasphemy Double-LP OSMOSE
Japanese heaviness in the extreme! Second full length from these HELLHAMMER/CF maniacs is so heavy it's unbelievable! Down tuned, murky, fat! This is must for fans of AUTOPSY, WINTER, BOLT THROWER, NECRO SCHIZMA. Fantastic! Album # 2.
CONCEPT OF GOD – Visions LP NO REMORSE
Formed as a side project by current- and former members of SOLITUDE AETURNUS. They recorded this in 2001 after taking a break from their main band, but it wasn't released until 2007. Fans of late 90's CANDLEMASS, ABSTRAKT ALGEBRA and KRUX and especially SOLITUDE AETURNUS should enjoy this as the songwriting is reminiscent of where the band left off in 1998's "Adagio", and also because Robert Lowe provides his unmistakable voice. Professional doom metal at its finest! Limited, only 300 hand-numbered copies!
CRUCIAMENTUM (UK) – Engulfed in Desolation MLP NUCLEAR WINTER
In later years UK has started to spawn some very interesting Death squadrons! Here is one of the best! Dark Abysmal sounding with some Floridian-touches (IMMOLATION, INCANTATION in particular) and a lot of interesting ideas! Recommended!
CURSE (SWE, Spånga) - Ad Futuram Rei Memoriam 10" MLP TO THE DEATH
The 1989 debut-demo tape finally given a vinyl treatment! A perfect example of how many great Swedish Death(Thrash) Metal-acts where spawned back then! Fans of MERCILESS, OBSCURITY, MORBID and GROTESQUE should pick this one up!
CURSE (SWE, Spånga) - Integumentum De Tenebrae 10" MLP TO THE DEATH
The 1989 2nd and last demo from Curse. Dark Deathrash, slightly more experimental then the first one, which should be placed next to MERCILESS, GROTESQUE, OBSCURITY, MEFISTO etc. Great re-release!
DAMIEN (SWE) – Memorandum 2LP TO THE DEATH
Swedish cult thrash! Double-LP collection of all the groups official 5 official demos recorded between (1986-1988) and their very hard to find 1988 "Requiem for the Dead" 12" EP.

DARK FOREST (UK) – Dawn of Infinity LP CRUZ DEL SUR
Epic and melodic heavy metal with a faint folk influence. You'll dig the hell out of this one if you're a fan of Iron Maiden, Cloven Hoof, Twisted Tower Dire, Darkest Era and Isen Torr.
DEATHHAMMER/NOSFERATU – Split LP HEAVY FORCES
Norwegians DEATHHAMMER have received lots of praise in later time – and if you are fan of raw, high speed, Thrash in the German tradition (or ANTICHRIST (swe) for that matter) it is not hard to understand why! A very interesting choice to match them up with the Brazilians NOSFERATU which are one of the few bands that really knows how to capture the aura of evil 80s heavy metal in the HALLOWEEN-"Don't metal with evil"-tradition! Brilliant vocals as well! One of the best splits in recent time! Strongly recommended!
DEATHSPELL OMEGA – Drought MLP NOEVDIA
The latest mini LP from the leading progressive-BM-act of today!
DEATHSTORM (AUT) – Storming with Menace MLP I HATE
Limited, 500 copies on yellow vinyl. The best young European Thrash squadron we have come across in many years! Comparisons can be drawn to old SADUS, KREATOR(album 1-2) and Swedish HYPNOSIA. The Austrians first storm is filled with rawness & aggression, hatred & pain! A must for all self-respecting Thrashers!
DECREPITAPH – Condemned Cathedral LP I HATE
2008 debut album from the Americans, sounding like it was recorded in 1990/91. Classic old, heavy Death metal(maybe even DOOM/DEATH) from back when Death metal was about writing good/evil metal instead of the current trend with maximum speed and 432 riffs per song. Enjoyable for fans of ASPHYX, BOLT THROWER, MORGOTH, CANCER, NECROS CHRISTOS. The past is still alive! Limited to 400 copies on Blue vinyl, with extra A3 poster.
DECREPITAPH – Beyond the Cursed Tombs LP I HATE
The 2010 album from the Americans, sounding like it was recorded in 1990/91.

Enjoyable for fans of ASPHYX, DIVINE EVE, MORGOTH, NECROS CHRISTOS, BOLT THROWER. The past is still alive! Limited to 400 copies on Yellow vinyl, with extra A3 poster.
DEIPHAGO – Satan Alpha Omega LP HELLS HEADBANGERS
The long awaited 3rd album from the Filipino chaos mongers, one of the absolute most bestial War/Black-squadrons known to man! Honestly speaking, this must be the album of the year within the genre! BESTIAL WARLUST, BLACK WITCHERY, REVENGE and similar acts could be mentioned as allies in the war against purity! Gatefold, gold vinyl!
DESOLATION ANGELS – Feels like Thunder 5LP-BOX + 7" MISKATONIC FOUNDATION / HIGH ROLLER

It is very pleasing to see old heroes still manage to deliver the goods! 22 years after their 1985-classic "Maximum Destruction"-album DESTRUCTOR still create powerful heavy/speed/thrash once made famous by EXCITER, RAZOR, AGENT STEEL and of course DESTRUCTOR themselves! Their latest full-length! Strongly recommended!

The US Death Metal veterans strike back with their 6th album! Definitely one of their best and darkest outputs! Could be placed between SUFFOCATION and MORBID ANGEL in your collection!
EARTHRIDE – Something Wicked 2LP DOOMENTIA
True Mary(-Jane)land doom metal with the easily identifiable vocals of Dave Sherman guiding our way through the murk and the haze. Any self-respecting fan of the Maryland sound should own this. Helpful tip: Internal Void, Wretched, Spirit Caravan, The Obsessed.
EL CAMINO - The Satanik Magiik LP NIGHT TRIPPER
Gruff and rough doomish stoner metal. Recommended to fans of Cathedral, War Injun, Earthride and High on Fire.

An acclaimed Viking Metal classic! Of course for BATHORY-Hammerheart –era fans and MORRIGAN devotee's as well as for people into old EREB ALTOR. Epic, bombastic journeys into heathen times! Gatefold.
FORSAKEN – After the Fall Gatefold-2LP I HATE
Finally the deserved vinyl version of the latest album by the Maltese Epic Doom purveyors! This vinyl is strictly limited to 485 copies and contains 1 white & 1 red vinyl, symbolizing the Maltese-banner. Two bonus tracks, one brand new studio song, "The Golem", and one live recording from 2004.
FUNERALIUM – S/t DLP OSTRA
Fantastic funeral doom metal with a bit of black metal thrown into it. This is crushing and sick in the best possible ways! Fans of the following maniacs will surely enjoy this: Ataraxie, Worship, Wormphlegm, Bethlehem. Funeralium is not for the faint of heart!
GALLOW GOD – False Mystical Prose MLP PSYCHEDOOMELIC
Lo and behold, a new band that actually reminds us of the mighty Fall of the Idols! You know what that means, right? The dreariest doom imaginable. Well, they're not quite as dreary as FOTI but the musical similarities are there. Being an English band the chaps also seem to take influences from early to mid 90s doom such as Anathema, Paradise Lost and Unsilence.
GRAVELAND - Will Stronger Than Death LP NO COLOURS
One of the greats of epic Pagan/Black metal. This one man army's 10th album from 2007! Gatefold-LP.
GRAVELAND – Thousand Swords LP NO COLOURS
Truly a masterpiece from one of the most influential bands in the Black metal scene. This is epic Black/Pagan metal at its absolute peak! One of very few within this style that mange NOT to sound like Bathory! Can't praise this one enough almost. In a league of it own. Buy or die! 2nd album -95.
HADEZ - Aquelarre LP TAHUANTINSUYO RECS.
Finally this super-cult Peruvian debut album from 1993 has been re-released on vinyl! Definitely the missing link between SARCOFAGO "I.N.R.I.", VULCANO "Bloody Vengeance" and REENCARNACION "888 Metal"! The highest possible recommendations for fans old & raw South American Black/Death Metal! Re-issue with 2 bonus tracks and new cover artwork!
HELLKOMMANDER/FARSCAPE – I Piss on your Grave split 7" DYING VICTIMS PROD.
The two great Brazilian underground forces signing up for a joint piece of wax! Classic old school way!
HOODED PRIEST - Devil Worship Reckoning LP EMANES METAL
Dutch band crafting the doom sound it into something of their own! Take their use of a double bass and the black metal influences for example. With that said try to imagine CANDLEMASS or SOLSTICE combining forces with URFAUST and TORMENTOR and you're there sound wise. Traditional yet original and highly recommended! Limited, 500 hand-numbered copies!
HORN OF THE RHINO – Weight of Coronation DLP DOOMENTIA
The music is similar to YOB and High on Fire, but the impressive vocals will remind you of grunge bands Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. If this combination sounds appealing to you then definitely consider making a purchase. Recommended!
HORSE LATITUDES – Gathering DLP SVART
It's fair to say that is drone/doom that's one of a kind but comparisons can be made to Om, Reverend Bizarre and Ride for Revenge. "Gathering" is the group's first album(2010), now finally released on vinyl!
HYENA - S/T 7" OBSCURE ABHORRENCE
7" limited to 500 copies. Sick Black metal by maniacs from THESYRE, BLOODLINE (SWE), DIABOLICUM and should attract listeners of those bands. Also kudos for the provocative song title "Hymn to Hagamannen". Up yours, conservatives!
IGNIVIMOUS/TZUN TZU – split 7" NUCLEAR WAR NOW!
Darkness comes from Australia sometimes, especially when these two Death Metal-squadrons join forces for this cool piece of black wax!
IGNIVOMOUS – Path of Attrition MLP NUCLEAR WAR NOW!
Their first demo re-released on vinyl. Hellishly dark and heavy death metal in the vein of Immolation, Incantation, Demigod, Morpheus Descends, Rottrevore, etc. Includes a bonus track.
IN SOLITUDE (SWE) – S/t LP HIGH ROLLER
The debut album from the young Swedish traditional/true 80s metal purveyors! Well worked out Maiden/Mercyful Fate/old NWOBHM-inspired creations sprinkled with satanic band image!.
INTERNAL VOID – Voyage LP SVART
The band's first official demo tape from 1991 reissued on vinyl. Classic Maryland doom metal highly recommended to fans of the mentioned scene. Imagine the early releases of Unorthodox, Revelation and Iron Man. Hell yeah!
IRON HEARSE – Lunar Funeral MLP+MCD PSYCHEDOOMELIC
The MLP includes four exclusive tracks, the bonus 5-track MCD includes the song "Rock Builder", previously available on the 7" split with Leather Nun America. The music is traditional doom heavily influenced by The Obsessed! Buy this if you enjoy axe-slingers like Wino and Victor Griffin.
JEX THOTH - S/t Gatefold LP I HATE
An ominously beautiful, sonic odyssey through an archipelago of psychedelia, occultism
and alchemy with siren Jex at the helm is available from us on the day that doesn't
exist...Twelve tracks standing effortlessly clear of the mere 60?s/70?s retro tag but
that, nevertheless, will shock and shake fans of Black Widow, Jefferson Airplane,
Pentagram and Amon Düül 2. Alchemical Doom is imminent! The otherworldly artwork evoked
by Albert Witchfinder(Reverend Bizarre) is printed on creamy white natural paper
enhancing the beauty of this release even further.
JEX THOTH – Totem MINI-LP I HATE
Finally the vinyl version of the TOTEM MCD I HATE released in 2007 but now under the JEX THOTH moniker according to the band's wishes. Black vinyl.
JEX THOTH - Witness MLP I HATE
This MLP contains three new songs -- two original compositions and a cover song that fluidly flow into a mellow psychedelia with proto-doom metal influences stemming from the 60s and 70s. "Witness" is perhaps less guitar oriented than before with the mood becoming more melancholy in the process; the music is heavy yet laid back and openly nostalgic without being sentimental or trite. The band's biggest strengths are the haunting vocals of Jex and avoiding the usual trap of carbon copying its predecessors. As such this MCD should appeal fans of pastoral, psychedelic rock/metal with a firm footing in the past but not necessarily dwelling there -- timeless, really.
KARNARIUM - Otapamo Pralaja LP NUCLEAR WINTER
Dark ritualistic Death Metal is what is on offer here! Strange obscure melodies and odd tempos mixed together. This (the 2nd) full-length from KARNARIUM is really something special; all lot of hard work has been put into this album, that is fact! Surely giving INCANTATION, PORTAL, NECROS CHRISTOS a battle for the throne! A serious contender for DM-album of the year!
KATHARSIS – Fourth Reich LP NOEVDIA
The 4th full-length by the Germans. Elite BM.
KHORS – Return to Abandoned DLP OSMOSE
Ukrainian black metal similar to Nokturnal Mortum, YGG, Djur, Vspolokh, etc. Has that genuine East European atmosphere! Get this if you're looking for some great, epic black metal.
LEATHER NUN AMERICA/ DEER CREEK – Rat City/Light of the Blessed Sun split 7" PSYCHEDOOMELIC
Two great grooving doom bands coming together. Here you'll find elements of traditional doom, stoner metal and sludge. For fans of The Hidden Hand, Floor, Negative Reaction, and so on.
LEGEND (UK) – Death in the Nursery LP SVART
Reissue of the 2nd album from 1982. NWOBHM with a gloomy atmosphere. Recommended to fans of Sarcofagus, Cirith Ungol (debut), Cloven Hoof (also the debut) and Overlord (the one from Canada) – basically the darker side of 80's heavy metal.
MALIGN – Divine facing + Fireborn LP NOEVDIA
Their "Divine facing" 10" and their "Fireborn" 7" collected on one LP. Swedish BM cult.
MANES - Under Ein Blodraud Maane LP HAMMERHEART
Repress of Manes's debut album from 1999. An often overlooked Norwegian black metal band and unfairly so. Some great atmospheric material here that is similar to Limbonic Art, Nocternity and even Burzum at times. Highly recommended.
MANILLA ROAD – Crystal Logic LP HIGH ROLLER
All-time 1983 Epic/Heavy Metal classic, re-issued with gatefold cover + poster.
MANILLA ROAD - Playground of the Damned LP HIGH ROLLER
The band's 15th full-length album, this one released in 2011. A more song oriented album with shorter songs than on the previous releases, and nods to older records such as Mark of the Beast and The Deluge. Certainly any true Manilla Road fan can't live without this? Recommended just like everything else this legendary band has put out.
MANILLA ROAD - After Midnight Live LP HIGH ROLLER
"After Midnight Live" was recorded live, on the air, at KMUW radio studios, Wichita, Kansas in December of 1979. This live album is a real treat for all Manilla Road fans and that includes yours truly. The sound quality is very good and you get all exclusive material from the earliest stage of the band's career and if you enjoy "Invasion" and "Mark of the Beast" this should go right to the top of your list of things to buy. Splatter vinyl.
MANILLA ROAD – The Courts of Chaos LP HIGH ROLLER
The epic metal kings hardest record ever! Heavy Metal the MR way mixed up with Thrash, even some early SLAYER vibes at times. Their 8th album, originally released in 1990.
MASACRE (COL) – Metal Medallo Attack LP NUCLEAR WAR NOW!
Collection of the early mini-albums by Colombian Death Metal legends MASACRE! Features the 1991 "Ola de Violencia"EP-output, with music in strong Colombian tradition (PARABELLUM, BLASFEMIA, but with a more Death Metal-edge to the music) + the 1993 "Barbarie y Sangre en Memoria de Cristo" mini-LP continues in the same tradition but with a heavier dark aura round the music! Honestly speaking this is about the best extreme metal to ever come out of South America – do yourself a favour and pick it up! Comes with a 28 pages booklet!
MIDNIGHT (US) – Satanic Royalty LP HELLS HEADBANGERS
After tons of split EP's, splits and demos, here is the full-length debut from the American traditionalists! This about blackened heavy/speed/thrash metal done the right way! Really catchy songs that stick to your mind like glue! There is old VENOM and a bit of MOTÖRHEAD/DISCHARGE in the bottom of the sound, but MIDNIGHT use their influences well and create something sounding traditional but not really like someone else – and that is MASSIVE in today's overcrowded scene!
MORDANT (SWE) – Black Evil Master LP TO THE DEATH
Their 2nd full length! Influences: 66,666% NIFELHEIM + 33,333 % DISSECTION in an unholy and very ugly combination! Recommended!
MORTEM (PERU) – Devoted to Evil MLP WORSHIP HIM
The last sign of death from the Peruvians veterans before their now 6 years unproductivity (at least when it comes to studio material). Sad story because this is/was about great, dark obscure Death Metal in the best SADISTIC INTENT, DEATH, caveman-MORBID ANGEL-spirit! Untrendy and timeless material! Hope the new upcoming MORTEM-recordings will keep the great sprit present on this recording!
MOUNTAIN THRONE – Serpent´s Heathland MLP CYCLONE EMPIRE
Debut Mini album from the Germans who to 50% consists of members from MIRROR OF DECEPTION. This is about epic HEAVY/NWOBHM/DOOM in 80s tradition. Fans of SLOUGH FEG, SOLSTICE etc. should truly enjoy this!

The debut album from the Italians who deliver a fresh slab old school Death/Grind in strong IMPETGIO – "Ultimo Mondo Cannibale"/REPULSION–tradition!
NECROFAGO (BRA, Passos, Minas Gerais) – Brutal Mutilation LP NUCLEAR WAR NOW!
Finally an official re-release on this Brazilian cult horde which created noisy Thrash/Death/Black metal recorded during 1987-88. Comparable to countrymen EXTERMINATOR, MX (demos) or for that matter Hungarian legends like FANTOM & ANGEL REAPER. Raw underground metal for underground people! Gatefold with poster and more.
NECRO (ITA) – Gore Ceremony LP TERROR FROM HELL
Heavy as fuck Italian Death Metal! Perfect for fans of IMPETIGO, AUTOPSY, DERKETA etc. Nice "meaty" production! Recommended!

NOCTURNAL VOMIT – Cursed Relics LP TERROR FROM HELL
It took Greek NV 13 years to finally unleash their debut full-length, and what a great piece of dark Death Metal it is! Think of bands like SADISTIC INTENT, PESTILENCE, NECROS CHRISTOS, GRAVE MIASMA to get the picture! Get it? This is a killer album!!!
NOMAD SON – The Eternal Return LP METAL ON METAL
A very strong second album from these Maltese doomsters. Recommended to fans of Forsaken (Albert Bell of Forsaken fame also plays in this band), Krux and Spiritus Mortis!
NOMINON/KOMMANDANT – Impaling the Nazarene/Absence of Light split 7" CRYPTORIUM
Ltd. 500 copies. Cool split between Swedish Death Metal veterans NOMINON (featured with a Impaled Nazarene-cover) and upcoming American warlike Black/Death-squadron KOMMANDANT.

Compilation LP collecting the unreleased 1991 EP + the groups two 1990 demo tapes from this old Swedish cult Death Metal act! For fans of Nihilist, Autopsy, Mega Slaughter! Great sound!
OBRERO - Mortui Vivos Docent LP NIGHT TRIPPER
Stoner rock/doom metal featuring Martin Missy (Protector) on vocals. For fans of ORCHID, SAHG, BLOOD FARMERS etc. Certainly a fine debut.
OCEAN CHIEF – Den förste LP ELECTRIC EARTH
The 3rd album. This mofo of sludgy doom metal should, in all honesty, attract listeners of "the heavy" like moths to flame. It's awesome! Comparable to YOB, Bongripper, Kongh. Get it now!
OMEN – Into the Arena LP NO REMORSE
Omen should need no introduction as they are one of the all-time greats in metal. On this compilation you get live recordings from 1985, the Warning of Danger demos, and a couple of previously unreleased tracks guitarist Kenny Powell dug up from his archives. Vinyl is limited to 250 hand-numbered copies. Any self-respecting fan of Omen needs this comp, enough said.

REALMBUILDER – Fortifications of the Pale Architect LP I HATE
The second full-length from the Americans. Grandiose yet unpretentious epic metal bringing to mind times gone by and bands from that age (Cirith Ungol, Manilla Road, Legend (US), Thin Lizzy). They've refined the sound that made their debut LP such an endearing endeavor and also take a doomier route on occasion this time. Red heavy vinyl, strictly limited to 400 copies!
REVEREND BIZARRE – II: Crush the Insects DLP SVART
Vinyl reissue of the second full-length album. Mastered for vinyl and includes a booklet with previously unseen material and a massive photo collage hand made by Albert Witchfinder. Another Reverend Bizarre release that has to be owned by all self-respecting doomsters.
RISE AND SHINE – Empty Hand GATEFOLD-LP I HATE
Since the inception in 1993 Swedish Rise and Shine has paved a way of their own for their version of 70's Heavy/Psych/Doom Rock. Despite their roots being ever audible (think SABBATH, THE OBSESSED/SPIRIT CARAVAN, PENTAGRAM, TROUBLE) RISE AND SHINE has always sounded like RISE AND SHINE and no one else. The reason for their uniqueness is spelled Josabeth Leidi. Josabeth has a sky clad, emotionally charged voice echoing Joplin and a pathos that nears that of Faithfull, with which she delivers the bands spot on lyrics darkly, but always with a glimmer of light, for the sake of contrast. Empty Hand is released in April, is Rise and Shine's fourth album proper and will not disappoint any fan of honest, heavy and groovy Rock! Limited, only 300 copies!
RISING DUST – S/t LP EMANES METAL
Groovy doom from these French lads. Recommended to fans of the likes of Cathedral, Spirit Caravan, Earthride, Wall of Sleep. Easily one of the best French doom bands of all time! Get this now!
SARCASM (SWE) – Never After 3-LP TO THE DEATH
Massive and exclusive triple-LP compilation collecting all demos (3 official, 3 unreleased), 1992-1994, and the groups unreleased 1994 album. Classic early 90s Swedish Death Metal but with an identity of its own – especially with the progression of the later material! A forgotten treasure!
SARCOFAGUS - Cycle of Life LP SVART
Legendary album in that it was the first Finnish heavy metal full-length. Now re-released with care by Svart Records. Sarcofagus had a dark and quite unique sound for 1980 but the influences would have been Deep Purple, Sir Lord Baltimore and Judas Priest. A true collector of Scandinavian heavy metal can't be without this classic! Their debut.
SARCOFAGUS – Envoy of Death LP SVART
Reissue of the 2nd album from 1980. Dark and quasi-doomy heavy metal. Not too different from early Death SS, the first Cirith Ungol album, or Witchfynde. Recommended!
SARCOMA INC – Psychopathology LP ANTCHRISTIAN FRONT
Raw Norwegian BLACK/THRASH with Demon on LIMBONIC ART-fame. Perfect for fans of old AURA NOIR and similar, with typical cold/raw Norwegian sound!

SIEBENSÜNDEN/TERATOLOGEN - Gläd dig du Kristi Luder/Herrens Djuriska njutning LP MALARIE/PAS – 83/PIKE/IHATE
Finally the vinyl version! Ltd to 666 copies.
GLÄD DIG DU KRISTI LUDER/HERRENS DJURISKA NJUTNING with TERATOLOGEN's acid-dripping and poignant lyrics accompanying the miserable audible sloth of SIEBENSÜNDEN's can be seen as an answer to the "righteous" fanatic Christians new morality movement. Put simple it is guaranteed to give you a new angle on the subject of Christian sects and religious indoctrination. That is, if you know Swedish…if not you will still be able to lap up the slowly flowing audible bile which should be a feast for Sludge maniacs, Doomsters, miserable punks, Black Metal misfits and industrial psycho's alike. The later listener category is also likely to be the ones most fascinated by the sound of SIEBENSUNDEN's own home made instruments, while the BM aficionados will appreciate the extremely blasphemous message. Siebensünden equals very obscure Swedish Sludge Core with members of WARCOLLAPSE, FARCIAL, DOM DÄR, COUNTERBLAST and TOLSHOCK. The band has been more or less (more less than more though, ehr…) active for over ten years and have released two full length albums up till the present day. Nikanor Teratologen is famous in Sweden for the much hated and much loved Äldreomsorgen i Övre Kågedalen book and other classics.
