PERDITION WINDS share first song from new album

Today we are revealing details of the excellent new album from Finland’s Perdition Winds. Titled Transcendent Emptiness, the band’s second full-length echoes from the tradition while inhaling the toxic oxygen of today. It’s a journey through the darkest paths one takes, leading to a triumphant resurrection in the abyss. 50 minutes of expertly crafted black metal that’s both terrifying and full of atmosphere.

The album was mixed and mastered by Henri Sorvali (Moonsorrow) at Trollhouse Audio and is the band’s first record to feature new vocalist J.I. Facing the fact that we were forced to find a new singer on the verge of going into the studio put us into a different mindset. Frustration was quickly turned into strength and recruiting J.I. as a vocalist was the final nail to the coffin. – comments the band.

Listen to the album’s first advance track „Impious Frontier” here:

New LJOSAZABOJSTWA EP available on CD/digital.

New Ljosazabojstwa (Belarus) EP Sychodžańnie is available now on 6-panel digipak CD and digital formats via Hellthrasher Productions. With Sychodžańnie, LSZB take their brand of ancient thrashing black death to a whole new level, balancing barbaric riffage with mysterious interludes and spoken word samples that make for a unique experience. Prepare yourself for a 32-minute descent to the bottomless pit.. 

„As good as Staražytnaje licha was, Sychodžańnie is better. While that first demo was a multifaceted affair, there are even more facets on this new gem, and the band have pushed the dynamism of their compositions to even greater heights. The result is a half hour of music that keeps the listener tightly bound in the chains of its attraction.” – NO CLEAN SINGING

ARS MAGNA UMBRAE announces Through Lunar Gateways CD edition

Polish black metal project Ars Magna Umbrae will release a CD version of the debut EP Through Lunar Gateways on June 23rd via Hellthrasher Productions.

Self-released digitally in February 2017, Through Lunar Gateways can be summed up as an occult maelstrom of ominous and atmospheric yet hostile black metal. The EP was solely written and produced by D.A. Khthōn with guest chants provided by Hekte Zaren of Adaestuo. The artwork was created by Nöt. 
Through Lunar Gateways will be available this Friday on 6-panel digipak CD (Hellthrasher). The 12” vinyl and cassette versions to follow later this year via Flesh Vessel and No Return, respectively.

LJOSAZABOJSTWA drops another track from Sychodžańnie EP

„The midtempo intro/verse alone is enough to get anyone’s noggin nodding in rhythmic fashion, but it’s the following bridge section that shows how capable Ljosazabojstwa has become at shifting genres in such a short time. The sound of a funeral knell halts the assault of the guitars, slowing them down into a trudge with grinding bass and doom-y hammer-ons. The accompaniment of transcendent organs suggest you’re plodding toward a fate that’s at once terrible, majestic, and inevitable, before breaking away with speedy thrash riffing and blackened heaviness.”

Both pre-release tracks are now also available on bandcamp:
