The wait is over... and to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the release of one Holland's most brutal releases in the Death Metal camp of early 90's, XTREEM MUSIC is tremendously proud to announce the re-issue of DISSECT's only album "Swallow Swouming Mass" together with the band's 4 demos in a killer double CD set, followed by two separate vinyl releases later on, including the album in one and demos in another.
Emerged in 1990, DISSECT recorded three demos in '91 & '92 before recording their classic "Swallow Swouming Mass" album for Cyber Music and years later, in '97, the band recorded a 4th demo in a totally different style, more into Technical Death/Thrash after which, they disbanded.
With a fucking heavy, crushing and pounding Death Metal style blending influences from some very early and heavier version of GOREFEST, GRAVE, FUNEBRE and even ROTTREVORE, dutch DISSECT managed to create hell of a killer album that gets a new chance in 2013, just when the band decided to reform with all its original members to offer new shows and who knows what else.
The re-issue of "Swallow Swouming Mass" is expected to come out in February 1st, and as said, will come out on a complete double CD set containing an extensive 16-pages booklet full of band pictures, liner notes, lyrics, demo covers, flyers… and remastered sound for all recordings. You can already listen to a newly remastered song here:
The very long awaited return 2nd album of Swedish Death Metal pioneers SORCERY is completed and ready to come out in January 15th, 2013!!
The final result of "Arrival at Six" has turned out better than anyone could have expected and is definitely a great comeback for this legendary band that started in '85 and delivered a bunch of good demos & EP as well as a classic album in late 80's and early 90's. Mixed by Tomas Skogsberg at Sunlight Studios, "Arrival at Six" contains 9 slabs of true and pure Swedish Death Metal. No imitations here... this is the real deal!!
Track list is as follows:
01. We Who Walk Among the Dead
02. Created From Darkness and Rage
03. Master of the Chains
04. United Satanic Alliance
05. Arrival at Six
07. Maculated Life
08. Beyond the Wall
09. Reborn Through Hate
Cover artwork has been made by renowned artist Daniel Devilish and the album will come out both on CD (Jan 15th) & 12"LP (Feb 1st). In the meantime you can listen to an exclusive advance song here: http://youtu.be/u67pyB4Ol2I
XTREEM MUSIC is more than proud to announce a new agreement with finnish Deathsters DESECRESY which have re-inked a new deal to see their next albums released on what has been their home label since their inception.
DESECRESY, whose debut album "Arches of Entropy" was released in November 2010, has been building a reputation on their own as one of the heaviest and most interesting Death Metal bands to come out from Finland in the recent years. Even though their debut album was well received, that was nothing compared to their sophomore release "The Doom Skeptron" in June 2012, which got nothing but superb reactions everywhere, being hailed as one of the best Death Metal releases of the year.
The band is currently working on their 3rd full length album, although there's no exact plans for its recording, but could be expected by the end of 2013.
The resurrection of CHRIST... DENIED is here!! It took more than just 3 days to be honest, more likely 11 years, haha, but one of the most respected and legendary bands in the Brutal Death Metal camp from the 90's, has a new reincarnation!!
Since in October 2001 David Nigger moved to Germany, CHRIST DENIED entered in a lethargic state of which numerous times tried to resurrect, but in the end it never happened, so by mutual agreement, David Nigger gave his consent to Dave Rotten to try keeping the band alive with another member, so in November 2011, Roger from INFECTED FLESH was asked, and gladly accepted, to join in order to spread more blasphemies in the name of CHRIST... DENIED!!
However, due to Roger's commitment on the recordings of his own band's third album, the new compositions couldn't get started until late summer 2012 and it's now, after having 4 songs already written and with both members fully committed, when we can proudly announce what many lovers of Brutal Death have been claiming for years... CHRIST DENIED is back!!
Roger Infected is a reputed musician that has been spreading his Brutal Death sickness with INFECTED FLESH since 1997 and is a truly well connoisseur of the style, so it wasn't difficult for him to adapt himself to CHRIST DENIED's brand of old fashioned Brutal Death in the vein of bands like PYREXIA, IMPRECATION, SUFFOCATION, CRYPTOPSY... and in general anything that was created before year 2000.
CHRIST DENIED is now working on the composition of their 2nd full length album to be expected sometime in 2013, and everything under the blessing of David Nigger, who despite of not playing in the band anymore, we still consider him as an honorific member.
Right after the new album is written and recorded, some old songs will be recovered in order to create a set list that will be performed on the very first live shows ever to be played by CHRIST DENIED!! Yes, something that seemed it would never happen, so expect some of the sickest and definitely most unexpected live performances for a Brutal Death band. Where will be the very first show for the band?? Nobody knows, but one thing is sure: the band will only perform at very few and selected festivals. Always with only two members, which was, is and will always be the trademark of CHRIST DENIED!!
La banda española de Death Metal técnico UNREAL OVERFLOWS recientemente terminaron los trabajos de preparación de su segundo álbum titulado "False Welfare". Completamente grabado, producido, mezclado y masterizado en sus propios Zoilo Unreal Studios, éste álbum muestra un impresionante trabajo que fácilmente podría clasificarse entre una de las mejores ediciones de Death Metal técnico de los últimos tiempos si hubiera sido lanzado a través de uno de ésos grandes sellos todopoderosos. :-)
Retomando desde donde su album debut "Architecture of Incomprehension" lo dejó y a pesar de dos significativos cambios de formación, "False Welfare" nos ofrece un excelente estilo de progresivo y técnico Death Metal tomando como base los últimos trabajos de DEATH y algunas de las innovativas ideas de GOJIRA para crear un magistral álbum lleno de grandes melodías y memorables riffs.
"False Welfare" está previsto para una inmediata edición a mediados de Noviembre y ya puedes ver la portada del álbum en alta calidad así como escuchar un tema de adelanto y un video oficial de muestra en los siguientes links:
Infernal deathrashers ALTAR OF SIN have recruited a permanent 2nd guitarist named "Neura" who already played in old Metal bands BRAMS & XUQUER and is now contributing to build that massive wall of sound for ALTAR OF SIN on their already famous devastating live performances.
At the same time, the band has recorded an official video-clip of the song "Voodoo Hell (Blessed by the Devil)" from their acclaimed 2nd album "Tales of Carnage First Class" and can be watched on the band's official Youtube channel here: www.youtube.com/PraiseEvil
Slovenian Thrashers ERUPTION have inked a deal with XTREEM MUSIC and the band is currently working on their sophomore album ''Tenses Collide''. This album is being recorded, mixed and produced at Negligence Studios under the watchful eye of Jan Švigelj and Žiga Zmazek. The album will offer 8 completely new tracks as well as the song ''Selfcaged'', previously released as a web-single but re-recorded for the purposes of the album.
Picking up where they left off with their debut ''Lifeless Paradise'', the first order of the day on the band's second release ''Tenses Collide'' is still lethal, unadulterated Thrash as executed by well- known stalwarts of the genre such as Testament, Forbidden, Vio-lence…
Instead of compromising their sound, ERUPTION builds on it. The edge of deadly old school Thrash got sharpened by an even deadlier coating of various influences, adding aggression to their music without sacrificing any of the melodies.
The cover artwork for ''Tenses Collide'' was painted by the renowned artist Andrei Bouzikov, known for his work with bands such as Municipal Waste, Deathraiser, Cannabis Corpse, Skeletonwitch and Vektor amongst many others.
Release date for "Tenses Collide" is still not set, although it's expected sometime before the end of 2012 and will be defined as soon as recording and mixing work is finished. In the meantime, you can listen to the demo version of the aforementioned track "Selfcaged" here: http://youtu.be/GCexYi7kJyI
It's now 100% confirmed that we'll play two shows in Turkey:
Dec.07 - Ankara (2012 Performans Club)
Dec.08 - Istanbul (Pulp Live Club)
We know we have a strong fanbase in Turkey, so we've done all what's in our hand to make these shows happen. Thanx to the essential help of Arda from [www.metaltr.net] who's organizing everything and soon will confirm all bands that will be sharing the stage with us.
So we invite all turkish AVULSED fans not to miss any of these shows, as they'll be most probably the only AVULSED shows ever to be played over there. Unforgettable shows are guaranteed!!
See you there!!
The debut album of spanish melodic Death Metallers THE DESCENT is ready and will be released in October 1st through XTREEM MUSIC. With an excellent artwork design by Auryn Digital and a great production by Carlos Creator at RockStudios being later mastered at swedish Fredman Studios by Fredrik Nördstrom, "Dimensional Matters" is a magnific album which will sure please any fan of melodic yet aggressive Death Metal the swedish way a la AT THE GATES, DIMENSION ZERO, early SOILWORK, EUCHARIST...
The album cover has been revealed, as you can see on this statement, as well as the track listing:
01. The Web of Lies
02. Sacred War
03. Winter Hell
04. Rejected by the Sun
05. The Day After
07. Wraith (Tied to Reality)
08. No One Cares
10. Guilty Conscience
THE DESCENT recorded an official video-clip with a song from the album entitled "The Day After" which perfectly shows their ability to blend melody, catchy riffs and killer grooves with heavier and more aggressive passages combined a varied vocal department, which makes of this album a very dynamic and enjoyable work.
Swedish Death Metal legends SORCERY have inked a deal with XTREEM MUSIC for the release of their second full length album. Formed back in 1985 and thus being one of the very first Swedish Death Metal bands, they released three demos in '87, '88 & '89, a 7EP in '90 and an already classic album in 1991. The band split up in '97 and reformed in '09, recording two more demos before signing to XTREEM MUSIC.
SORCERY is currently working on their new album, over 20 years after their debut. Still untitled, it's being partly recorded with Tomas Skogsberg at Sunlight Studios, the same studio used in 1991 with "Bloodchilling Tales". Seven out of the nine songs on the album are brand new, written with the latest line-up consisting of original members Ola Malmström (vocals), Paul Johansson (guitar) and the two new members, John Falk (drums) and Mikael Carlsson (bass). The other two songs, "Master of the Chains" and "Maculated Life" were written during the bands earlier days and will perfectly link the old material with the new.
Cover artwork for the new album is being drawn by renowned artist Daniel Devilish while the recording will be finished around November for an expected release in January 2013 on CD with vinyl version later on. In the meantime you can listen two new songs featured on the band's "Warbringer" pre-production demo 2012 which are being re-recorded for the album with better sound, production and arrangements, will serve to hear what's coming!! Check the two following links:
The band FUCK OFF, pioneers par excellence of Thrash Metal in Spain, have reached an agreement with XTREEM MUSIC for the imminent release of a CD entitled "A Different Sacrifice 1987-1988", that consists of the songs of their first album "Another Sacrifice" ('88) as well as the ones from their previous self-titled debut 7"EP from '87, although with the characteristic that these songs are offered in different versions coming from different takes done in the same recording sessions.
Due to legal problems in matters of releasing rights on the first album of the band that seems to never find a solution, which in fact made of this album and 7"EP never to be released on CD ever since, FUCK OFF have decided to commemorate the 25 years of such recordings rescueing from their old recording masters, the same songs, but with arrangements slightly different to the ones on the album, sometimes unnoticeable if you don't carefully listen to both, but with a mixing and sound with which the band feels more identified (louder and heavier, more Thrash, less Heavy Metal), due to the fact that for questions beyond the band's control, they weren't very satisfied with the final sound on the album back then.
"A Different Sacrifice 1987-1988" could be considered the most near thing to a possible re-issue of the mentioned recordings, but with a far superior sound and production. The booklet includes also a great amount of photos, magazine clippings, interviews, promotional flyers, show posters, liner notes by Pep Casas, etc., which completes an essential release to understand the origin of Thrash Metal in Spain, Cult stuff!!
The release of "A Different Sacrifice 1987-1988" is scheduled for September 1st and you can actually hear an advance track on the following link: http://youtu.be/-PRfKW6VKkk
You can also listen to the version from the original album to appreciate the differences of arrangements, sound and production, here: http://youtu.be/2Lz7vE_pe3w
AVULSED has been chosen by the readers of ROCK ESTATAL magazine as one of the 100 most outstanding bands in the Spanish Rock & Metal scene. This has a special relevance when noticing that it's the only Death Metal band in such selection, basically being the only extreme Metal band and thus of uncommercial kind.
Each band is featured in such publication (of 200 pages!!) with a brief interview & photo. We have scanned for you the front cover and page where AVULSED is featured for all of you who are interested in reading it (if you can understand spanish, haha!!). We'd like to give special thanx to all readers that voted for AVULSED as one of the most relevant Spanish Metal bands in the past decade. We hope to still remain it for the next one!!

Just a few days ago, AVULSED played at what's probably the best Metal festival in Europe: HELLFEST!! We had a fucking great time over there and we're so happy of having the chance of playing there in front of thousands of maniacs!! The show was fantastic and both the audience and us enjoyed every minute of our performance. We are very grateful to the HF organization for treating us so well and having us at their awesome festival and of course specially thankful to all these AVULSED fans, friends and in general to all Death Metal lovers that watched our show. We hope to meet you again at some other european festival in the future!!
Here you have a few of the first videos on YouTube from the AVULSED performance:
After long consideration,
AVULSED has finally decided to officially present
new drummer Osckar Bravo at Hellfest, being this the
best possible opportunity to show all our fans the
capabilities of our new band mate.
There was an initial
chance that Riky (ex-drummer) would play at Hellfest
in case that we didn't have a drummer ready for it,
for which we're very grateful, but since the adaptation
of Osckar has been nothing but excellent, the band
feels ready to face the challenge of having his official
debut at such big event.
In the meantime,
AVULSED has been confirmed to perform as headliners
on the next edition of the REPULSION Fest.
which will take place in Sevilla (Spain) on 29th of
September along with bands like EXTIRPATING THE INFECTED,
NO FATE, PURULENT NECROPSYS and DIGGING YOUR TOMB.
If you still haven't
seen Osckar in action, you can still watch this video
of his first practice with the band: http://youtu.be/Klfs5IQT7Uw
After the highly acclaimed re-issue in 2011 through XTREEM MUSIC of the legendary debut album from 1992 "Member of Immortal Damnation", finnish Death Metal masters PURTENANCE decided to reform anf bring back to life the legend!! The band is more motivated than ever and have already inked a deal with XTREEM MUSIC for the release of a new mini CD as well as their upcoming albums, first of them expected for 2013.
The new mini CD is already recorded and entitled "Sacrifice the King", featuring 6 songs in the already traditional Finnish Death Metal for which PURTENANCE is well known for. The current line-up cosists of original members Juha Ranniko (guitars) and Harri Salo (drums) plus new member Ville (bass/vox). Cover artwork had been again done by cult artist Chris Moyen.

Just one month after the departure of ex-drummer Riky, AVULSED is proud to announce the joining of a new drummer to their ranks.
After testing three excellent drummers, the decision was taken in favour of Osckar (Oscar Bravo) which proved to be not only the best drummer, but also, and very important as well, to have great qualities as a person as well as the necessary dedication for the band, which will undoubtely inject fresh and renewed hopes.
Osckar is one of the best drummers on the Spanish Metal scene which also plays in the legendary Heavy Metal band SOBREDOSIS and also on NIGHTFEAR, as well as recently departed from melodic Death Metallers ATMOSPHERE GREY. Osckar is also endorsed by various prestigious brands like MAPEX drums, ZILDJIAN cymbals, EVANS drumheads, ZILDJIAN sticks and AXIS pedals.
All members in AVULSED feel so happy & proud of having found Osckar to fill the drum spot and he just came to stay as another full-time member, making the band stronger than ever before, and we can't wait to present him live as well as recording the new album towards the end of the year.
You can actually see a short video taken during our first official rehearsal with Osckar where he already played the first 5 songs he learned for the test. You can see he's perfect for the band!! Watch here. (We’re waiting for your comments!!)

Sweden, this time with the help of Brynjar Helgetun
on drums, who already played for bands like CRYPTICUS,
RIBSPREADER, THE GROTESQUERY... Vocals were recorded
during the last days of March in Spain, so now
everything will be mixed in Sweden and should
be ready during the month of April.
Nine songs were recorded this time, eight of them
will go on the album and one will be kept for
some possible split EP with some rotting band
if there's a chance for that. Song titles of the

cover arts ever!! Just judge by yourself!! You
can see it with more detail by
This new PUTREVORE slab of sonic putrefaction
will be release through XTREEM MUSIC, although
there's not a definite release date for this album
yet, but most probably it'll be first released
on 12"LP vinyl format around June and some
months later, on CD format, so all vinyl freaks
will get priority before any new generation ipod-consumer
boy, who will have to wait before getting their
cystal-clear digital bootlegged ethereal mp3.
No advance tracks can be heard yet, but hopefully
we'll be able to post something during the coming
weeks at the band's official MySpace at: www.putrevore.com
To all followers and fans of AVULSED:
We're sorry to communicate you that since last 20th of March, Ricardo Mena (Riky)
is no longer the band's drummer. Due to differences on how to deal with different
internal issues within the band, we've decided, after a reunion, that the best
thing for both parts is not to continue together. No hard feelings, beyond the
sadness that all this means for us all.
Due to this, we must announce the cancellation of the performance on the two upcoming
festivals in April where AVULSED was going to participate: Thrashway Fest (Oviedo)
and Barroselas SWR Fest (Portugal). However, there's a possibility that the last
show with the current line-up with Riky might happen at Hellfest in France.
We just want to thank Riky for his eight years of total devotion and profesionalism
as a musician and his friendship, that we'll keep, of course. And to wish him
the best both on personal and professional on musical matters.
