RITUAL BLADE - Hidden Pain + Hollow Gods EP's (2017)


Since we last mentioned Massachusetts' Ritual Blade on this blog, they've dropped two killer, 3-song offerings on Bandcamp with Name Your Price options. Hollow Gods, which I somehow missed, came out back in March of this year and Hidden Pain just got released this past Friday The 13th. Both were written, recorded, mixed and mastered by the band and both sound fantastic, building on the blackened and metallic hardcore sound they started with their Self Titled debut. Definitely check this new stuff out as this band continues to get better and better. Grab them on Bandcamp or alternate download links below.

Dawn Ray'd-An Unlawful Assembly LP (2017)

Country: United Kingdom
Genre: Black Metal, Doom
Label: Halo Of Flies/Prosthetic Records
Tracks: 10
Length: 42.30'


Dawn Ray'd is a three piece band from Northern England who formed in 2016, from the looks of things.  Dawn Ray'd play a bleak, raw, and oppressive style of black metal and doom.  Musically, Dawn Ray'd can be loosely compared to bands such as Barghest, Black September, Mutilation Rites, and Churchburn.  Since forming in 2016, Dawn Ray'd have released a six song LP titled A Thorn, A Blight in July of 2016.  An Unlawful Assembly is the band's latest full-length LP, which was released via Halo Of Flies and Prosthetic records on October 2nd, 2017.  To be honest, Dawn Ray'd's new album actually threw me for a look in regards to the political nature of the album's lyrical content.  An Unlawful Assembly sends a message of a highly politicized anti-fascist message, which definitely adds to the album's sheer and concise brutality.  With that being said, An Unlawful Assembly comes at a perfect time when our nation and the world as a whole seems to be devolving into hate driven chaos.  Overall, An Unlawful Assembly is probably one of the best black metal albums that I've heard all year.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!

(U.S.) Petrification-Summon Horrendous Destruction EP (2017)

Country: USA
Genre: Death Metal

Label: Sentient Ruin Laboratories
Tracks: 4
Length: 15.0'

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we're happy to finally present you with the 7" vinyl release of Petrification's monstrous debut demo - Summon Horrendous Destruction!

This devastating demo was first released on tape last March, with the two pressings that were done selling out in record time and these cassettes becoming an instant collector's item! The original tape pressing received widespread acclaim with many top metal publications like Decibel Magazine and Metal Injection praising the band's reckless and original approach to super destructive old school death metal. CVLT Nation went as far as calling Summon Horrendous Destruction a “glorious slab of putrefying sonic death” and a “gore-obsessed frenzy of decaying sonic rot and of punishing death metal chaos”. Petrification’s old school death metal trudge truly is a gruesome thing to behold - their music batters the flesh and smashes bone with the cruelty of an orc unleashed from hell, and their debut demo Summon Horrendous Destruction is a glorious onslaught of mummified and gross as fuck old school death metal that will delight fans of Autopsy, Nihilist, Grave, Cruciamentum, Disma etc.

Petrification formed out of their love of Old School Swedish, British and particularly Finnish Death Metal, wanting to create music that while an homage to its roots, allowed its members to find their own unique voice in Extreme Metal. Drawn to the evil and doom-laden soundscapes of the Finnish Masters, Petrification set out to meticulously craft their own vision in the writing of the demo Summon Horrendous Destruction, lyrically and sonically conjuring apparitions of giant, man-eating Arachnids and other horrors that lurk on the edge of the Void awaiting their victims.
 
(Press Note)

*This is some amazing old school death metal: FFO: Entombed, Gorguts, Exhumed, etc.  Summon Horrendous Destruction was released on cassette via Sentient Ruin Laboratories on August 17th, 2017.  Overall, this is a killer EP and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  ENjoy!

ACEPHALIX-Decreation LP (2017)

Country: USA
Genre: Black Metal
Label: 20 Buck Spin/Sentient Ruin Laboratories
Tracks: 7
Length: 37.50'

We could not be happier to work with 20 Buck Spin to release Acephalix's new crushing album Decreation on September 22 2017. While the Northwest label will be handling the CD/LP/Digital versions, Sentient Ruin will bring you a cassette version of the album, as has been in the case of "sister" band Vastum, with whom Acephalix shares two members (down from three).
Nothing is left to be said about Acephalix that hasn't been said before. We're talking about one of the most barbaric, involved, and blatantly ignorant death metal bands to have ever appeared in America. Having gotten their start around 2006 as a primitive and heavy crust band influenced by Wolfpack, Anticimex, and Discharge, the band eventually steered its sound toward the realm of the most demented and regressed death metal, soon ascending to role of kingpins among the Bay Area's most revered, feared, and gruesome extreme metal acts.
After having released albums on famed San Francisco crust label Prank Records, and then signing to Southern Lord in their "death metal" era for two albums, and sharing the stage with bands like Autopsy, Pentagram, Winter, Undergang, and beyond, the band dissolved in 2011, only to make a glorious return in 2015 with the writing of new material. Since their Southern Lord debut (2011's punishing Interminable Night) and for most of their recent history the band has been formed by core and founding members Dan Butler (also vocalist of Vastum), David Benson (also drummer Depressor), guitarist Kyle House (also in Serpents of Dawn, and ex-Poison Idea and ex-Vastum) and bassist Luca Indrio (also in Vastum, and Necrot).
Interminable Night also marked the mutation from Acephalix's early crust punk leanings into a blood-thirsty old school death metal war machine, as (while still retaining a solid crust-punk framework) they began to embrace the style and aesthetics of ancient Scandinavian death metal bands like Dismember, Grave, Demigod, Nihilist, etc, assaulting the listener with a maelstrom of buzz sawing riff madness, dark and perverted atmospheres, and punishing caveman rhythms. On top of their neaderthalian and feral musical approach, Acephalix have been known for Dan Butler's intimidating presence and revolting lyrics dealing with death, violence, and perversions of the most unnamable kind, and with his unpredictable stage presence which has seen Acephalix shows quickly escalate into chaos, with heaps of staked bodies, and people flying all over the place.
Today we're honored and excited to be a part of the continuation of this legacy from one of America's most praised, revered, and feared death metal hordes, as they prepare the release of Decreation - their most involved, bestial, and gruesome release to date, splendidly enhanced by Greg Wilkinson of Earhammer Studios' staggering low end production and Brad Boatright of Audiosiege's crisp and aggressive mastering. The coronation of the work is the incredible cover art done for the band by luminary Adam Burke.

You can already hear the song Suffer (Life in Fragments) right here, while cassette pre-orders are already live on our store and Bandcamp. Stay tuned for more songs to surface soon and for further announcements. (Press Note)

*This is some amazing primitive, raw and filthy black metal FFO: of Noisem, Iilsa, Seven Sisters Of Sleep, TEETH, and other like-minded bands.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
