Crurifragium – Beasts of the Temple of Satan No ratings yet.

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 bestial metal that brimmed with a weird ‘n’ unsettling chaos and a tar-thick density.

Alas, with that name change came a relatively more finessed approach to the bestial arts; CRURIFRAGIUM’s eponymous debut demo suggested a slight change was afoot, but it’s with Beasts of the Temple of Satan where the power-trio truly come into their own. Resolutely crude and barbaric and forsaking any niceties like “progression” or good taste, CRURIFRAGIUM explode forth with a filthiness beyond compare. Granted, its grind ‘n’ churn owes reverential debut to the dual gods of Blasphemy and Beherit, but these particular Beasts of the Temple of Satan exhibit a ghastly, gibbering intensity that sounds like those last frayed ends of sanity forever severing their grip upon (ir)reality and (ir)rationality. Within that palpable possession, the maelstrom whipped forth ably benefits from a stout and sawn-off production that’s simply crushing to behold.

The rise of the black moon is at hand, so empty the chalice with CRURIFRAGIUM’s Beasts of the Temple of Satan!

Death Worship – Extermination Mass MLP/MCD 5/5 (1)

Nuclear War Now! Productions

Release: 15 March 2017

Back in 2013, when the imposing specter of Death Worship first surreptitiously announced its impending presence, the collective response from those who witnessed its blasphemous annunciation was one of sheer anticipation. During the ensuing three years in which the band has meticulously crafted the final touches on its debut recording, that well-deserved anticipation slowly morphed to a palpable degree into impatience and even disbelief in the project’s eventual outcome. Now, with the long-awaited release of its Extermination Mass MLP, Death Worship is certain to silence the Johnny-come-latelies who have not endured long enough to recognize that the most worthy monuments are those that were not conceived of and erected overnight.

Invoked by the “Deathlord of Abomination and War Apocalypse” (AKA R. Förster of Conqueror/Blasphemy), performing all six- and four-stringed strangulations and lead vocals, and joined by “Nocturnal Grave Desecrater and Black Winds” (Blasphemy) on additional vocals and J. Read (Conqueror/Revenge) on session percussion, the collective pedigree of Death Worship’s members is second to none. Naturally, the initial anticipation of and later impatience for this release are a direct result of the legacies that these musicians have established through their current and former bands, and those who had hoped for a comparable result are not to be dissatisfied.

Combining the utter violence of Conqueror and Revenge with the songwriting insensibilities of Blasphemy, Extermination Mass achieves a perfect balance among the three bands with whom its members are most closely associated. R. Förster’s songwriting is very much aligned with that of Blasphemy, and it is characterized by more discernible riffs than many newer bestial black metal bands who often rely, to varying degrees of success, on a more obfuscated wall of noise to achieve their effect. Additionally, Förster’s knack for dropping in a well-placed and executed guitar lead is readily apparent on this recording. The Conqueror/Revenge influence is obviously most appreciable in J. Read’s signature, militarily-precise and violent percussion, which shifts tempo with less subtlety and more frequency than Blasphemy is prone to do.

Perhaps as noteworthy as the songwriting and musicianship of Death Worship is the high level of attention paid to the depth of production on the recording, a trait which closely mimics that of Blasphemy’s infamous Blood Upon the Altar demo and one which owes itself to the experience of Fiasco Bros. Recording Studios, who recorded said demo along with several other recordings attributed to the Ross Bay Cult.

With Extermination Mass, Death Worship affirms that the Superion once again has arisen, and the Cult is alive and well.

New Release: Sacrificio – Guerra Eterna, add this to your wishlist! 5/5 (1)

Artist: Sacrificio Album: Guerra Eterna Genre: Black Metal Origin: Spain Year: 2016 Label: Iron Bonehead Productions
Artist: Sacrificio
Album: Guerra Eterna
Genre: Black Metal
Origin: Spain
Year: 2016
Label: Iron Bonehead Productions

sacrificio-logoBlack Metal, a dynamic genre that has a depth greater than the ocean itself. There are bands that create something new, yet it is boring. There are bands that arrive that are just regurgitations of the past. There are bands that made a sound in this genre that are the staple, the epitome, the pinnacle. This is a genre that very rarely has something new, original, unique, fresh, and heavy as fuck in the traditional sense. Then comes Sacrificio‘s Guerra Eterna, I will cut my fucking tongue out right now for ever saying that black metal cannot surprise me any more.

Sacrificio‘s Guerra Eterna is an amazingly original throw back to proto-black metal without being any type of retro garbage. This is pure fucking black metal. You can feel the stagnant evil lingering in the air while this album spins… it’s fucking amazing. This is a piece of art that you do not come across every day, and it makes you tread lightly as this album will fuck you up!

This album is a giant fuck you to the second wave of black metal and all its clones that exist. Fuck off nowaday’s black metal and listen to fucking Sacrificio‘s Guerra Eterna. You better get this sick album when it drops December 9TH.

IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS, in conspiracy with NUCLEAR WAR NOW! PRODUCTIONS, is proud to present SACRIFICO‘s highly anticipated debut album, Guerra Eterna. Hailing from Spain, SACRIFICIO caused a stir in the underground with the release of their self-titled mini-album in 2014, which was also jointly released by IRON BONEHEAD and NUCLEAR WAR NOW! Chained in conservationism as a strict principle, the trio raised the banner of black metal’s first generation and reinvigorated its standards with Sacrificio. But now, with Guerra Eterna, these true warriors of the occult have eclipsed that feat by creating a humid mass of idiosyncratic, eldritch energy: a soundfield/headspace fully unified, a statement of steely, blood-drenched intent.

Like its debut short-length predecessor, SACRIFICIO‘s Guerra Eterna bristles and brims with the same strange intensity that earmarked the most unexpected and darkest latitudes of Columbia, Brazil, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary in ancient times. Verily, it is BLACK METAL, vociferously and vigorously, without parentheticals or qualifiers or other weakening aspects of nowadays “black metal.” And yet, throughout its staunch songwriting and more strident execution, Guerra Eterna finds SACRIFICIO in an advanced state of evolution, even if that “evolution” is inversely a sort of devolution, shackled as they are to the swirling scuzz that equally nods to the pioneering works of early deathrash legends and the contemporaneous bestiality of elder South American climes. Further, the production on the album is even more rounded and robust than the mini-album: as ever utilizing supposedly “arcane” methods of tube distortion and tape compression, it reveals aggression and mystery equally in a more pronounced manner.

Warriors summon to the bugle sound of death marches and bloodshed, intoning anthems of a timeless black metal apocalypse. Fierceness of colossal might unbounded, throughout barbarous aeons of atrocious warfare. Devastation and misery overrule for eternity. Only the dead will see the end of war…this is the sound of SACRIFICIO‘s Guerra Eterna.

Listen To: Emperor – In The Nightside Eclipse No ratings yet.

As an integral part of the second wave of black metal was Emperor. Bringing a new sound of operatic symphony to the genre, Emperor brought a new elegance to the once primitive nature of black metal. Emperor‘s 1994 full length album In The Nightside Eclipse is an extraordinary album that all metal heads and fans of excellent music in general should all consider and Essential Album.

It has been 22 years now since this album has been released, how do you feel In the Nightside Eclipse and Emperor changed black metal?

 

O’ mighty Lord of the Night. Master of beasts. Bringer of awe and derision.
Thou whose spirit lieth upon every act of oppression, hatred and strife.
Thou whose presence dwelleth in every shadow.
Thou who strengthen the power of every quietus.
Thou who sway every plague and storm.
Harkee.

Thou art the Emperor of Darkness.

Thy path is capricious but yet so wide.
With no such thing as an impediment to strong.

Every time thou consecrate me to another secret of Thine,
I take another step towards Thy Pantheon.

O’ mighty Lord of the Night. Master of beasts. Bringer of awe and derision.

Forever wilt I praise Thy dreaded name.
Forever wilt I serve Thee.
Thou shalt shalt forever prevail.
