InvictusRelease: 30 January 2017 INVICTUS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present CRURIFRAGIUM’s highly anticipated debut album, Beasts of the Temple of Satan. Although only springing to foul life in 2015, CRURIFRAGIUM’s history stretches back to their previous existence as Warpvomit. And although only existing for a couple years before the name-change, with their lone Carnal Sacrifice demo, Warpvomit verily approximated their moniker: disgusting, gestatingly cyclonic...

Iceland’s Abominor’s EP Opus: Decay is a two track, 21:29 minute  descent into a hellish abyss. Abominor has been around since 2008, released a four track demo in 2010, and finally released the Opus: Decay EP in 2015. This is an excellent short but sweet EP for black metal fans. The two tracks have a totally independent sound that is distinct from the other. The opening track “474” is an unrelenting dystopia of blastbeats and anger that lasts for 12...

Originally released independently last year, Malokarpatan’s Stridžie dni is being reissued on Invictus Productions on April 26th. If this band had a crowdfunding page I would contribute because this album fucking rules. I do not know what Malokarpatan means nor do I know what Stridžie dni means so why did I even listen to this album? Because reading influenced by  ’90s classics like Venom, Mercyful Fate, Bathory, Barathrum, etc.” and seeing this album art...

It is very difficult for me to strictly label Head of the Demon’s Sathanas Trismegistos as doom metal, I just find it very difficult to place it anywhere else. This is about as epic as doom metal can get. Usually when a band tries to make an epic doom album the words boring, yawn, sleepy come to mind, with Sathanas Trismegistos the words phenomenal, extraordinary, unique, and impressive come to mind. There is an undertone of black metal that drives this album...

There are very few black metal bands that can pull off the 2nd wave sound without sounding boring, repetitive, and watered down. These guys have the raw, but decipherable recording quality, with evil, obscure, entrancing melodic lines that could hypnotize you through vast dimensions of time and space. At first listen, this may sound like unoriginal regurgitated 2nd wave trash, but upon a few more listens, one will find that its quite original and unique sounding, especially...

Haunting and atmospheric is the words that best describe Akatechism’s demo Dripping Flames. Through distinct breaks of doom and black metal this demo gives us a new band to look forward to hearing a full length from. The production of this demo is crisp considering it is just that, a demo. Though it is only 3 tracks long this demo clocks in at about a half hour. Very rarely can I sit through these types of albums/demos, that was not the case with Akatechism’s...
