For more than two decades, LOITS has been producing some of the most meticulously crafted and unique black metal. Hailing from the tiny nation of Estonia in northeastern Europe, LOITS draw upon the history of their proud people for inspiration, particularly the Estonian underground guerilla resistance movement—often referred to as “the Forest Brothers”—that struggled against Soviet occupation during and after WWII. With its 2001 debut full-length, Ei kahetse midagi, […]

CIANIDE set release date for new HELLS HEADBANGERS mini-album

Hells Headbangers announces December 27th as the international release date for CIANIDE’s highly anticipated new mini-album, Unhumanized, on CD, 12″ vinyl, and cassette tape formats. One of the cultest names in American death metal, CIANIDE have stuck to their guns for over 30 years now, patiently building a canon that’s unrivaled in its consistency and trend-free philosophy. Theirs is a Metal of Death that’s simple, straightforward, and effectively primitive: blunt-force trauma informed by Hellhammer and Chicago forebears DeathStrike, but with a sewer-dredging atmosphere all its own. CIANIDE’s rich discography reads like a study in unselfconsciousness: one could say the power-trio […]

NEBULAR CARCOMA to release NEGATIVA’s mini-album on vinyl

Nebular Carcoma sets December 6th as the international release date for NEGATIVA’s cult 01 mini-album on 12″ vinyl format, featuring fully remastered sound and presented on a single-sided LP. NEGATIVA are a prolific and mysterious force hailing from Spain. The entity’s two central figures, multi-instrumentalist DB and vocalist D.R., respectively maintain the well-regarded Délirant (of the Mystískaos cabal) and Atrabilis. Together, as NEGATIVA, do the duo create delirious, tortured, but credibly avant-garde black metal, worming deep within atonality and tension to find bittersweet resolution and maimed ‘n’ malformed melody. Of the band’s prolific clutch of releases, arguably, NEGATIVA’s 01 is […]
