Spanish brutal Death maniacs EXQUISITE PUS have inked a deal with XTREEM MUSIC for the release of their debut album "Dead [Forgotten]" due for immediate release in September 10th.

XTREEM MUSIC has come to an agreement with spanish Blackers CRYING BLOOD for the imminent release of their 3rd opus "Animae Damnatae".
CRYING BLOOD is one of the most veteran bands in the spanish Black Metal scene that is still active and they're pioneers in singing in their native tongue (spanish) giving it a different feel compared to other bands of similar sound. Entirely recorded at VRS Studios (Avulsed, Haemorrhage, Mistweaver, Looking For An Answer...) in Madrid, "Animae Damnatae" features 13 songs in over 55 minutes of a majestic and symphonic Black Metal which will surely please any fan of the good old days of CRADLE OF FILTH & DIMMU BORGIR and with this, the band relies on giving their strongest step forward to stablish them as one of the most recognised Black Metal forces in the spanish scene.
The release of "Animae Damnatae" is scheduled for release during the first days of September and you can already hear some advance tracks at the band's official MySpace: www.myspace.com/cryingbloodspain

"Som" is the title of this new album that will reveal new horizons for the band that even though they still keep it loyal to their trademarks, explores new ways to reinvent themselves and keep on growing in their creative camp of maximum maturity. "Som" is a risky and honest work, carefully ellaborated, dense and crushing, intense and suffocating, simple and twisted in equal parts, the masterpiece that should VIDRES A LA SANG to the top of contemporaneous extreme Metal.
The band has been working again at AXtudios during the months of July and August for an scheduled release date of September 15th again through XTREEM MUSIC which is already their third consecutive collaboration.
"Som" is the third album, the one that closes the trilogy with 6 songs on each record. "Som" features 6 tales, 6 visions, 6 songs...

XTREEM MUSIC has reached an agreement with italian Death/Grind terrorists GRIMNESS 69 for the release of their 2nd full length album "illHeaven Hells" which was originally released by british label Copro Records by the end of 2008 but which suffered of a deficient distribution and promotion nearly leaving this album unnoticed to the scene. Now, under the flag of XTREEM, this new album will get the exposure that this hard-working band deserves. For an immediate release date of August 1st, the album will be supported by the band's upcoming European tour in later September/ early October together with labelmates AVULSED and belgians EMETH.
This is what Jacopo, drummer of GRIMNESS 69 had to say about this new era in the band: "Working with Copro Records was a good experience but we are sure than this agreement will give us what we really need for another new step and for our growth. Xtreem Music is not only a true dedicated METAL label but it's the DEATH metal personification: Avulsed, Disgorge (mex), Demigod are only few names of the bands that are working with them and now that Grimness 69 are a part of this rotten family we are stronger than ever".

Finally!! After some weeks of negotiations, XTREEM MUSIC is more than proud to announce the addition to their roosters of one of the most legendary, true and classic Thrash Metal bands ever to come out from the german scene!! No other than the mighty NECRONOMICON!! Yes, the same ones that emerged back in ’83 together with bands like KREATOR, DESTRUCTION, SODOM… and that released three classic albums from ’86 to ’88 and later two more in ’94 & ’04.
The band has always been active and nowadays they even still have three out of the four former members from ‘83/’84: Freddy, Jogi & Axel plus Andi who joined in ’02. Now with their 6th full length album “Revenge of the Beast” they’re here to continue the legend with what’s perhaps their strongest album ever!! In opposite way as most of the “old glories” that are still alive trying to imitate their good old days and offering average albums, NECRONOMICON not only retains their very own style, but they offer a varied, fresh and powerful album that will take by surprise all fans of the good old german Thrash Metal.
To know things from first hand, here you have an official statement from the band:
November 2008, NECRONOMICON has signed!
It’s the end of a long search and NECRONOMICON did a pact with the spanish Thrash & Death label XTREEM MUSIC with his owner Dave Rotten. Now it's time to release the production 'Revenge of the Beast' for all the Thrashing maiacs out there! Finally!
Again it was a long and rocky road for the 4 guys from the southwest of germany. Very typical, very NECRONOMICON. The production 'Revenge of the Beast' was recorded long ago. Once it was produced, mixed and mastered by Guru Achim Köhler it became a damn jackhammer!
But they didn’t just leave it at one production: Out of thanks and respect to the fans, NECRONOMICON produced “Revenge of the Beast” on their own a second time - in the style of the 80’s. It was all done in Temple Studio with Oliver Noack and NECRONOMICON and sounds like it – raw and brutal. Both productions are being released together on a special limited double CD edition for the 25th anniversary.
Then the old question: Who is best for the band? And, as you know, this is not quite easy. After loads of talking and debates Freddy, Axel, Andi and Jogi made up their mind for the Madrid label XTREEM MUSIC.
Because of the sun and the nice climate conditions there? No, because of Dave who is a real fan of the band, the music and the whole Metal scene. Very authentic! And because Dave build up and manages a very nice label in a professional way an with lot of enthusiasm.
In the end it was a clear decision for NECRONOMICON and we expect a lot from the cooperation.
NECRONOMICON and XTREEM MUSIC and 'Revenge of the Beast' – be aware.
“Revenge of the Beast” is due for imminent release in December 15th on a first limited edition of 1.000 copies on double CD to celebrate their 25th anniversary. There will also be exclusive & very limited NECRONOMICON shirts to be sold together with the double CD on a special-priced pack (CD+shirt) which will be sold only through the XTREEM MUSIC mailorder.
As we’re writing this, the band is back from a 3-show mini-tour in Russia and a presentation show in Madrid (Spain) is being organized around January. This will be the very first time NECRONOMICON will play here and will be a very special show for all old school Thrashers!!
You can hear a song from ”Revenge of the Beast” by visiting NECRONOMICON’s official MySpace at www.myspace.com/possessedbythrash and there you’ll hear by yourself that this new album is a truly strong work full of aggression with the real and unparalleled old school feeling on it!! We hail the new ordes of Thrash Metal, but the originals are still here to keep their throne!!
After having participated in the killer 2nd Death Fast Open Air in Germany and headlined the 8th Metal Mania Open Air in Slovenia together with Exodus & Impaled Nazarene, AVULSED is ready for one more festival (as headliners as well) to close the summer festivals. This one is the 6th FilthRock Festival in Germany on 20th of September.
The band has just finished the recording of a brand new track entitled "Breaking Hymens" that will be included in the upcoming 10-CD mega-compilation box-set devoted exclusively to Spanish extreme Metal bands. This compilation will include over 150 bands and will be released in November '08 through Xtreem Music. This new track is an exclusive recording for this compilation although it'll be re-recorded for their upcoming 5th album. You can actually hear a rough pre-mixed and unmastered version at the band's official MySpace www.myspace.com/avulsed
Regarding AVULSED's new album, for the first time we can reveal the title and album cover!! It's gonna be called "Nullo (The Pleasure of Self-mutilation)" and the artwork is one of the most bizarre, disturbing and even blaspheme covers the band ever got!! The responsible for this gory piece of art is the american artist Mike Hrubovcak who also worked for bands like Grave, Monstrosity, Cattle Decapitation, Mortician, XXX Maniak and tons of others.
Recording sessions for the new album are starting on September 6th and will take at least 2 months to be completed, mixed and mastered, so a release date should be scheduled by the very end of '08 or early '09, again through slovak label Metal Age Prod. Some of the new song titles are the aforementioned" Breaking Hymens", "She's Hot Tonight (In My Oven)", "Chestblood"... and the style of the new compositions follow the band's trademarked style brutal and heavy yet catchy and somewhat melodic Death Metal with an even heavier sound this time. Just listen by to the new track and judge by yourself!!
Spain's new Thrash Metal sensation DEATH OVER THREAT have signed with XTREEM MUSIC for the release of their imminent debut album "Sangre" (Blood) which is undoubtely one of the strongest and most surprising recordings within this musical genre in the spanish scene.
"Sangre" is a an album that showcases a really aggressive and intense brand of Thrash Metal which brings to your mind the best moments of SLAYER & SEPULTURA (on their "Arise" days), helped with an over-the-top vocalist which outstands on this band of skilled musicians. The album possess an incredible feeling which is very difficult to find nowadays and it's mainly due to the mature compositions where the excellent production, killer solos, catchy riffs and awesome vocal arrangements, transports you directly to early 90's blending influences from the aforementioned bands and spiced with some Bay Area touches.
Release date for this album is not settled yet, as it's still in design and post-production process, but it's expected sometime in late '08 and early '09. In the meantime you can listen to 4 songs on their official MySpace www.myspace.com/death6over6threat6
The debut album of spanish/swedish band PUTREVORE is scheduled for a September release through XTREEM MUSIC under the title of "Morphed from Deadbreath". PUTREVORE is a project band formed back in 2004 by Dave Rotten (AVULSED/ CHRIST DENIED) on vocals and Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER/ RIBSPREADER) on guitars/ bass with the intention of bringing back the most heavy, purtid and dark sounds of the old school Death Metal directly influenced by bands like INCANTATION, ROTTREVORE, GRAVE, FUNEBRE, DETERIOROT...
The original band's name was DEATHBREATH, but it was changed in summer '07 after seeing that another swedish band emerged later with a similar monicker, so to avoid possible mistakes, a more brutal namd was chosen which suits much better the band's style. Composition of the songs were made between '04-'07 and it was during '07 when recordings took place both in Sweden and Spain with the help of session drummer David Ekevarn, for a later mix and mastering at swedish studios EAP Productions by Ronnie Bjornstrom who did a perfect job capturing the exact sound and feeling that PUTREVORE needed!!
"Morphed from Deadbreath" includes the following 8 songs:
1. Aeon Leviathan
2. Torn From The Abzu
3. The Skies Vomit Sulphur
4. As They Return
5. Obscene Devourment
6. Dark Surgery Of The Ancients
7. From Depths Monstrous
8. Pale Bare Skull
The album cover was made by spanish artist Juanjo Castellano (www.juanjocastellano.com) who already did works for bands like Vomitory, Demoncy, Incantation, Evil Incarnate, etc. amongst many others. PUTREVORE's album cover and three songs from the album can be checked through the band's official website www.putrevore.com / www.myspace.com/putrevore

KATAPLEXIA will also attend to the most brutal festival in Europe this summer that will take place in germany on 12th-14th June 2008 (www.deathfeast.de) where they're going to celebrate their release party as well.
Yesterday night, our drummer Ricky suffered a loss of coscience and once in the hospital he remained in the Intensive Care Unit. It seems like he suffered a small brain stroke or something like that. this is, one of the veins was broken and some blood was spilled, so he need some surgery to take that blood out.
At this point we don't know much about it, since he liked 200 km away, and this is the information provided to us by his girlfriend, but what it's sure is that we'll have to cancel the AVULSED performance at the DELIRIUM FESTIVAL that's taking place near Paris 8France) next Saturday 19th of April. Also, right now we're not sure if we'll be able to perform at the UNDERGROUND METAL FEST in Lyon (France) next saturday 26th of April as well. We still have to see how Ricky develops from this and then we'll see, although this really doesn't depend on us.
We're very sorry for not being able to perform at the DELIRIUM FESTIVAL on which AVULSED was the headliner sharing the bill with quite some cool bands like HACRIDE + NO RETURN + DEGRADEAD + EMBRYONIC CELLS + HYSTHERESY + E-VICE. We hope our fans and the organizers will understand us in this critical situation and we really hope to play at next year's edition of the festival.
