ANTEDILUVIAN - "Through the Cervix of Hawwah" $11
Primal, primitive and cavernous. This is the only way to describe Antediluvian's brutal and suffocating sound. That brutality and suffocation is not, however, to be confused with the plethora of redundant 'death metal' bands that sound like broken machinery without any heart or soul. No, this is an altogether different beast and one that is nastier and uglier yet has more depth and atmosphere than many contemporaries. Anyone familiar with Antediluvian's previous material will note its density and a feeling of desolate helplessness, like being trapped underground with simply no way of escape.

BLACKDEATH - "Katharsis: Kalte Lieder aus der Hölle" $10
Hot blood in the frozen wastes, tormented sleeps, no rest, no peace - always some war to be fought. Black Death keep fighting, living life as war. On this new album, all of the wildness and violence that Black Death have been renowned for have now hardened into an idiosyncratic and cracked style: manic vocals that switch between black rasp and psychotic singing, nordic style riffs that are somehow bent into a weapon with sharper angles, and a song progression that is equal parts percussive brawl and wide-eyed revelation. After 6 albums you'd think that they would have plateaued, or grown tired, but no. Rather, here, you find them in the strongest form since the band's inception back in 1998.They now have finally secured themselves a real drummer, and full-professional studio sound. For some underground black metal bands, that might equal an awkward combination, but Black Death have always been stubbornly focused on quality of riff and refined composition of song which translates perfectly in this level of production. "Black Death means black metal" and effectively it is presented here on Katharsis without the trappings of politic or theologian rhetoric, and it's given in its most potent and straightforward dosage.

BURZUM - "Fallen" Digipack $13 TEMP OUT OF STOCK
New 2011 album. Burzum says of the new album and his style of music: "Musically FALLEN is like a cross between BELUS and something new, inspired more by the debut album DET SOM ENGANG VAR than by HVIS LYSET TAR OSS or FILOSOFEM. The sound is more dynamic we mastered the album as if it was classical music and I was more experimental than I was on BELUS in all respects. Lyric wise it is similar to the debut album, in the way that it is more personal and focuses on existential issues, but the mythological undertone known from BELUS is still there. I have also included some ambient tracks a short introduction and a longer conclusion."
BURZUM - "From the Depths of Darkness" Digipack $15 TEMP OUT OF STOCK

Burzum mastermind Varg Vikernes says, "I recorded and decided to release this because I always felt the original recordings didn't do justice to the music, and I wanted to hear the tracks as they were intended by me back in 1991 and 1992, when these tracks were made, and to share this with those interested."

CLANDESTINE BLAZE - "Fist of the Northern Destroyer" $11
Absolute Classic! Northern Heritage Records
CLANDESTINE BLAZE - "Deliverers of Faith" $11
2004 release, commonly acknowledged as the best Clandestine Blaze album. Northern Heritage Records
CREMATION - "Black Death Cult" $8
Cremation’s existence was short-lived and resulted in the release of a mere four demos during the years of 1992-1995. Clearly there is a current fascination in the underground with “dark” death metal and, perhaps partly for this reason, there has been great demand for a reissue of this demo material. (Note that this release contains only three of the four demos—the first demo being intentionally omitted.) The music of this legendary Canadian band is not merely dark, however. It is possessed with a genuine atmosphere of violence and perpetual terror that is arguably unmatched in the realm of pure death metal either before or since. For years these recordings have been praised and referenced largely due to Cremation drummer J. Read’s success with Conqueror, Revenge, and Axis of Advance. To those familiar with Read’s work, it will come as no surprise that the drums in Cremation do not simply keep time; rather, the drums are every bit as active as the guitars and vocals. In this way, the entire force of the band is leveled upon the listener simultaneously and the result is punishing. Each instrument contributes equally to the onslaught. The recording itself is simple and sparse, yet the overall effect is one of tremendous strength due entirely to the frenetic activity of the performance. The essence at the core of Cremation’s work is pure Satanic fury and virtually no death metal band from their era captured that fury so effectively as Cremation. Indeed, it can convincingly be argued that Cremation were far ahead of their time as one can hear the distinct influence of their unique style in the work of many of the new death metal bands of today. The three demos presented here, “Pire Gah Hoath Raclir Od Ialpor,” “Hail The Rise of Med Pe Gal,” and “The Flames of an Elite Age” vary slightly in their presentation, yet have a magnificent effect when heard in conjunction with each other. Each assault builds upon the intensity of the last and the cumulative effect is catastrophic. These demos depict the turning point at which one can hear the dying gasp of the last vestiges of pure death metal as the influx of black metal influence was about to permanently alter the landscape of the underground. Cremation’s sound exists at the precipice of this sonic and conceptual shift and represents the extremity attained only at the outer limits of the boundaries that demarcate the style known as death metal.

DEICIDE - "The Stench of Redemption" $8
Emerging from seemingly endless controversy re-energised and re-focused, the legendary Deicide hit back with their most confrontational album in years. 'The Stench Of Redemption' bristles with the defiance and confidence borne of a new line up (welcoming Jack Owen and Ralph Santola to the band), a new desire and a new common purpose. Crammed full of anti-christian invective supported by a barrage of blast beats and grimly direct riffing Deicide 2006 plays with the enthusiasm and intensity that puts every young pretender band to shame. The addition of fluid, melodic leads will surprise many - but the aggression and violence inherent in each track will please all those who want only one thing from Deicide - the ultimate Death Metal sound.
DEICIDE - "Till Death Do Us Part" $8
The notorious Death Metal legends Deicide return with their most barbaric and extreme album ever in the form of 'Till Death Do Us Part'.Featuring the band's fastest and most epic tracks to date, the album sets a relentless pace and makes no concessions as it out-extremes all of the current pretenders to the Death Metal throne.

Therefore, multiple requests to release Demoncy's vaulted material were fulfilled.

These albums represent the ancient spirit and feelings of Black Metal. They are from that era in time when Black Metal was not quite as widespread as it is today.
DESTROYER 666 - "To the Devil His Due" $12
Australian and antichrist, king of kings, the lords of the wild: the legendary DESTROYER 666 are all this and infinitely more, feeding the hellbangers' insatiable need with their long-awaited "To The Devil His Due" collection. Compiling the band's cult (and long-out-of-print) 7" vinyl releases onto a fiery full-length, "To the Devil His Due" is perhaps DESTROYER 666's greatest clutch of songs, their most memorable material ever, immediately ingraining and marching forward to victory. Satanic speed metal majesty with which to dominate, fuck, and destroy - "To The Devil His Due"! Recommended for diehards of DESTROYER 666, because there is only one DESTROYER 666, now and forever.
DESTRUKTOR - "Nailed" $10
"Raging for well over a decade in the isolated land of Australia, Destruktor have stood the test of time with a few EPs and a demo under their bullet belts.

DISMA - "Towards The Megalith" Digipack $13
Featuring death metal legend Craig Pillard (ex-INCANTATION/DISCIPLES OF MOCKERY), one of the most influential death metal vocalists of all time, and members of current U.S. death metal gods FUNEBRARUM, CITIZEN’S ARREST, and other INCANTATION alumni, DISMA’s towering debut album (which follows their highly-praised, now out of print “Vault Of Membros” demo) is a monolith of down-tuned doomy death metal terror that just seethes of old-school death metal glory. Captured purely on analog without the means of any digital computer enhanced trickery or any triggered effects which seems to be the means for most modern-day pseudo death metal nonsense and where fake social awareness/tech death metal bands seem to cater towards, the power inherent in “Towards The Megalith” manifests itself as the complete antithesis and the ultimate sledgehammer death blow to the head of polished modern-day death metal. Like the ominous tomb of humanity in which it represents, “Towards The Megalith” is a crawling and lurking monster, a suffocating yet epic vision of death metal horror and doom that will solidify this as one of the most prominent death metal albums of the year. Packaged in a six-panel digipack that’s adorned by some of the most incredible artwork that could ever grace a death metal album.

The new fullength album, the fifty dark minutes of true old Black Metal, filled with evil atmosphere, eerie mysticism and blackest witchcraft.

THE GATES OF SLUMBER – "Conqueror" Digipack $13
In what is destined to show what real, true, doom-inspired heavy metal should be all about, “Conqueror” is sheer proof that the mightiest and truest metal coming out today is coming out from the underground. While still harboring that epic monolithic aura The Gates Of Slumber defined themselves with, that crushing vibe that has given them the reputation of being one of the most prominent bands in the large umbrella that hovers over the doom metal scene, “Conqueror” sees the trio of singer/guitarist Karl Simon, bassist Jason McCash, and drummer Bob Fouts travel new ground as well, doing it with conviction and paying proper homage to such masters as PENTAGRAM, ST. VITUS, BLACK SABBATH, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, and CIRITH UNGOL with the dignity and conviction that will only solidify The Gates Of Slumber as one of the best bands in the metal underground today. We would like to see anyone try to prove us wrong… Nonetheless, the Profound Lore version of “Conqueror” comes in a nice six-panel digipack with a 12-page booklet which actually includes band commentary on each song with an anecdote following the lyrics, what went behind the making of the song and what inevitably inspired the band to create the song.

HATEFUL ABANDON - "Move" CD $10
Move is the long anticipated follow-up to 2008's Famine. The music is darker, the lyrics are bleaker. The planet is dying, they're printing money to burn it. Forming single-file into the abyss. They are trying to slow the inevitable; this is the sound of acceptance. Hateful Abandon present their despondent and angry reaction in Move. The sound remains uniquely their own, but progresses with new techniques and a harder attitude. A strong leading bass, twisting and ambient guitars, the percussive backbone from Swine, new electronic prominsence and the soulful roar of V/M!Influence remains from seventies and eighties visionaries Killing Joke, Public Image Ltd., Dead Can Dance, Joy Division, The Cure; and a background in Black Metal, though these are only pointers to the distinctive sound Hateful Abandon have managed to refine on Move.
HATEFUL ABANDON - "Famine (or Into the Bellies of Worms)" CD $10
With the recording of "Famine (or into the Bellies of Worms)" complete, it is now possible to state with absolute confidence: Hateful Abandon is England's finest, most unique new band. Dark pop, post-punk and a hint of black metal collide in dream-like anthems of deeply personal and lurid art. Hateful Abandon are genre-defining and totally unrestrained by any conventions.Instantly memorable songs are crafted with intricately textured guitars, an earthy bass and perfectly accented drums. The vocals are unparalleled and a brave contrast to the lazy, predictable efforts of many bands in any of the genres Hateful Abandon approaches. Battling between rich, deep, strong yet still human and fragile; and the most painful, retching screams.Famine is a landmark album, independent from any perceived contexts. It marks the beginning of a band about to tear through underground music.

HELLHAMMER - "Demon Entrails" 2CD Digipack $12
There are countless Hellhammer demo bootlegs, but they all utterly fail to capture the true "kvlt" aura, to represent the band as it actually was. They've been compiled from dismal multi-generation copies of the original tapes and are invariably riddled with factual & historical errors and/or lies. Demon Entrails is the first official release of the legendary Hellhammer demos since the original limited cassette editions in 1983. Century Media Records
HOODED MENACE – "Never Cross The Dead" $12
The crushing follow-up to “Fulfill The Curse” is now out, Finland’s HOODED MENACE delivering a monstrous album which features the heaviest and doomiest material mastermind Lasse Pyykko has ever delivered. With “Never Cross The Dead”, Lasse has created an album which takes all the traits of what made “Fulfill The Curse” a monumental debut, and has basically upped the ante on pretty much everything that has characterized the very essence of Hooded Menace. Basically “Never Cross The Dead” takes the Hooded Menace signature molding, one in which mixes old school death metal (basically death metal which doesn’t exceed the year 1992) with plodding AUTOPSY-esque sludge darkness, dirge-like amplification worship, slow crawling doom (ala WINTER and the first CATHEDRAL album), and takes said guttural conjuring to a level so sinister and evil, while also tampering new ground with a bit more Sabbath-esque groove and even some more dual guitar harmonics thrown in to help strengthen and further develop the Hooded Menace sound. Said elements all come together to create a monumental horror filled sonic feast that will plunge you into a realm where only old-school death/doom metal mastery reigns supreme. With its amazing jaw dropping cover art, drawn by Putrid and coloured by Geyer, “Never Cross The Dead” will not only be one of the heaviest albums to be released in 2010, but will also go down as one of the best death and doom metal albums to be released this year likewise.

JAMESON RAID - "Just as the Dust Had Settled" $12
Talk about another quality N.W.O.B.H.M. band that again fell under the radar. Again, plagued by the music industry, they never reached as many ears as they would have liked back then. The band formed in the late 70’s and wrote some of the catchiest tunes imaginable from that era. The “Seven Days Of Splendour” single features some of the best tunes ever created back then and when you pick this anthology of songs presented here, you’ll agree the quality is here.

KILL - "Horned Holocaust" $8
"Kill is the aural essence of primitive and dark Black Metal, as it was intended to be. Citing influence from Sodom’s ‘Obsessed By Cruelty’, Sarcofago’s ‘INRI’, Dark Throne, VON, Necrovore, ‘Horned Holocaust’ emerges a vile and hideous creation of true Black Metal art. The darkness in the music is reminiscent of the Samael masterpiece ‘Worship Him’ from the early days of Black Metal."

Atmospheric Pagan Metal with alot of Folk influences. Brand new exclusive works by both bands and doubtlessly the best by both so far. Comes with 24-pages booklet.
Unrelenting, intolerant and extreme Black Metal from the Czech Republic. Motivated by traditionalist philosophy, the atmosphere of this album can be described as a radical declaration of hatred channeled through a focused and violent form of Black Metal. Kult Ofenzivy takes the Czech sound and imbues within it a more sinister and merciless energy that solidifies this album as a paramount to extreme and evil music.
LASCOWIEC - "Asgard Mysteries" $10
Hypnotic and atmospheric Black Metal from Vinland. Compilation of the first two demos plus bonus tracks. Dark Hidden Productions.
LEVIATHAN - "A Silhouette in Splinters" $11
Previously only released as a limited-edition vinyl record, LEVIATHAN’s A Silhouette in Splinters has become one of the most sought-after LEVIATHAN albums to date, and now finally receives a well-earned CD release! A Silhouette in Splinters displays a different, arguably more haunting side of visionary Wrest: ambient, atmospheric soundscapes, the literal sound of your nightmares.
With the new LEVIATHAN album, sole proprietor and mastermind Wrest strikes back with a vengeance with one of the most confrontational, frightening, and thought-provoking musical statements of the year. Nonetheless, “True Traitor True Whore” is a different output than anything that Wrest has previously released under the LEVIATHAN moniker. Recorded under harsh, contemplative, sporadic and stressful circumstances through bouts of madness and decadence (all under the watchful eye of Sanford Parker within the confines of Engine Studios), the fucked up bizarre nature of “True Traitor True Whore” sees Wrest bring in a more rock element into LEVIATHAN, one influenced by ‘80s dark rock and post punk along with having a surreal prog element inherent as well. All marred with the dark ambience and the claustrophobic introverted progressive/forward-thinking black metal psychosis that only LEVIATHAN can manifest.

MALEDICERE - "Leave Only What is Fit to Burn" $10
"MALEDICERE execute their craft of harsh dissonance and patient, brooding occult ambience with a refined approach evoking the archaic and primitive elements of black metal as well as other unconventional influences.

This debut celebrates the exaltation of will and the pure Satanic essence which thrives within the six chapters of ritual presented. The scythe of the sun descends..." On Antitheist Disseminations

"The album that changed metal as we knew it. There is no other single release in the history of extreme metal that has had the impact of 'Altars of Madness.'

NORTT - "Graven" CD $10
"Graven" is Pure Depressive Black Funeral Doom Metal.
NORTT - "Ligfaerd" CD $10
Throughout its duration, Ligfaerd relentlessly smothers the listener in more layers of ghostly atmosphere than its predecessor, but the decidedly doom-oriented black metal component is definitely still present. Nortt's basic sound is still made up of morose background synths and piano, barely human snarls, ponderous drumming, despondent fuzzed-out guitars and other string laments -- all tied in chains almost too heavy to bear. This time however, these elements find themselves trapped in a more spacious environment, a cold void where each strumming of a chord comes back off the walls to haunt the listener. This sparse approach trades impact for atmosphere; at times it seems to increase the significance of each note, but it can also place more strain on the album's ability to keep the listener's attention. It all sounds like some barren ghost town somewhere between this world and another; the last funeral before your own has just taken place, and half-imagined church bells echo in your mind as a reminder that your miserable journey is coming to an end.
NOVAE MILITIAE - "Affliction Of The Divine" $10

EP) available on CD format, along with several old tracks re-recorded exclusively for this release and one new, unreleased track. Expect barbaric, unholy occult Speed/Black/Thrash Metal. The re-rekorded tracks are definitly displaying the band's sickest and heaviest sound ever, even recalling the overtones heard on Sadistik Exekution's insane "We are death, fukk you" album!!!! Limited pressing of 666 copies only!!!
"Four tracks of trance-inducing Black Metal -performed with utmost passion and dedication- proclaiming the despise to the ill-fated lives yet acknowledging the own succumb to the all-devouring essence of deterioration. Transcending Mundane Obstacles isn´t a recording which offers an easy walkthrough (although the first impressions might give an opposite feeling). To gain and reach the very essence of Obscure Anachronism, one must be willing to give his complete attention and concentration for TMO and it will not be in vain."
OBSEQUIAE - "Suspended in the Brume of Eos" Digipack $11
From the ashes of Autumnal Winds, Obsequiae build on the past with an atmosphere that has long been forgotten in the metal world.

While also at the same time, serving as the fist in the face to the female-fronted occult-doom/rock movement. Invictus Productions.
OCTOBER FALLS - "The Womb Of Primordial Nature" $10
Epic Finnish Acoustic/Folk Metal! A dynamic volume of work infused with the scope of nature, celebrating Life and death, blending folk sensibilities with harsh dissonance.

PALLBEARER - "Sorrow And Extinction" Digipack $13 TEMP OUT OF STOCK
Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, PALLBEARER have already generated a huge buzz within the doom metal scene in their short existence as a band. And never before has a new band within doom metal gained such a reputation as quickly as PALLBEARER have. All this done with their mind-blowing three-song 2010 demo which in itself, made a big impact within the doom metal scene worldwide. By encompassing the more traditional metal style of doom, PALLBEARER’s sound takes cue from such legendary doom metal bands as Candlemass and Trouble along with a classy ‘70s prog vibe and even an inkling of influence taken from “Gothic”/old school Paradise Lost that finds its way into the band’s epic yet sorrowful odes. Through powerful melodies, epic and somber passages of gloom, and with the stand out soaring vocals from vocalist Brett Campbell (who also made a guest appearance on the LOSS song ‘Silent And Completely Overcome’ from their “Despond” masterpiece), PALLBEARER’s debut album will not only be hailed as 2012’s traditional doom metal triumph, but it shall immediately herald the four-piece right into the doom metal echelons as one of America’s mightiest exports within the genre.

PIAREVARACIEN - "Down the Broken Path" $10
This was originally released ONLY in far Eastern Europe with limited distribution in 2008, now it is available to all! Musically, the band is close to the sounds of Absurd (DEU) and Temnozor (RUS), maintaining that gritty, yet quite pleasing quality most fans of Black Metal enjoy! The lyrics are of a pretty strict Pagan and Nationalistic (Toward their home country of Belarus) nature.
PLAGA - "Pożeracze Słońc" $10
Occult Polish Black Metal for fans of FUNERAL MIST, WATAIN, MGLA, etc. On Pluton's Rising Productions.
PORTAL - "Outre" $12
A much more oppressive, ambient, and atmospheric plunge into the vortex than its predecessor “Seepia”, “Outre” is a much more disturbing and surreal scenario pointed within a nightmarish vision like no other death metal band today can even dream (if they even dare to) to conjure up. What will alienate Portal that much more from today’s so-called death metal scene (well, 95% of bands being passed as death metal today aren’t!), “Outre” is an album, one in which is being released in the presence of today, that truly captures the pure essence of what real death metal is supposed to encompass. In today’s death metal scene, most bands (who claim to be death metal) feel the need to digitally trigger themselves and continuously enter all these death metal recitals in trying to out-do whoever and try to be the most technical, the fastest, the most triggered, the most well-produced, come up with the coolest riffs, and the most brutal of course (any idiot can do this, especially today). Nonetheless Portal want nothing to do with this… “Outre” is an album drenched in filth, disgust, raw other-worldly mire, unforgiving surrealism, and pure unbridled horror, a scenario in which some might indeed find hard to grasp. Through waves of vortex-like guitar histrionics (don’t expect to find any identifiable riffs on here), methodically tribal-like pacing percussion, looming bass pulsations, and the subterranean vocal dictatorship of The Curator, listening to “Outre” is like being sucked into that suffocating black hole in the nether-regions. Like an abominable silent art-house film from the ‘40s gone terribly awry, like the death metal soundtrack to the existential disturbing horror portrayed in Salvador Dali’s Un Chein Andalou, Fritz Lang’s M, or Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet Of Dr. Cagliari, “Outre” could very well be one of the most uneasy, and uncomfortable listening experiences in the history of death metal. True death metal art unparalleled…

ROTTING CHRIST - "A Dead Poem" $10
Striving to better themselves with each album, the band sought out an established person competent in metal and steeped with atmosphere to oversee their next creation.

Xy not only produced their latest masterpiece, but adds in his own keyboards to give some additional depth to their sound.
ROTTING CHRIST - "Khronos" $10
The year 2000 finds Rotting Christ more enraged and aggressive than ever! Leaving behind all of the gothic influences that peppered their previous two efforts, the band tighten their dark metal grip and lash out their most sinister work since their inception. Sure, sparse clean vocal lines are still conjured throughout Khronos. Vocalist Sakis unleashes the demon within him every chance he gets on this new material making for one frightening listening experience.

Spanning their entire career (including Theogonia on Season of Mist), this 2 disc collection has all tracks re-mastered with rare and unreleased tracks. The CD booklet includes lyrics, photos, info on all of their albums, liner notes from the band and a biographical history on the band. Over 2 hours of Rotting Christ in all their black metal glory! A great introduction to a legendary band. (2007)

SLOUGH FEG - "The Animal Spirits" $12
“The Animal Spirits” is an album that continues in the classic SLOUGH FEG tradition, once again proving that SLOUGH FEG are not only the most notorious cult heavy metal band within the underground but one of America’s most important traditional heavy metal bands in the last 15 years. “The Animal Spirits” is SLOUGH FEG’s eight studio full-length release amongst a career that spans 20 years. It is another fantastic gem that will not only go nicely alongside such SLOUGH FEG classics as “Traveller”, “Down Among The Deadmen” and “Twilight Of The Idols” but will, in general, fit adequately amongst SLOUGH FEG’s entire illustrious metal repertoire (one in which no American metal band in the underground can even touch) as another chapter to remind the heavy metal scene (and its consuming fans) what true genuine metal should be all about. As for the significance of the album title “The Animal Spirits”, vocalist/guitarist and overall metal iconoclast Mike Scalzi delves further: “The title sounds like it could mean plenty of things, but really refers to an Aristotelian theory of perception that was somehow taken seriously until the mid to later 1700's (?!) Why this was I don't know, but it involves these bizarre fluid called ‘animal spirits’ traveling through a person's veins carrying information of what they have perceived, storing it in the heart, and then releasing it again when that thing is remembered. It really a primitive precursor to the idea of neurons firing in a chain, containing ideas. So that's what people will find if they do a little research about the title.” Going further into the themes of the album, Scalzi elaborates: “The content of the record is (subject wise) is not too far from usual SLOUGH FEG material. The first two songs are about Medieval Catholic theology. Then it switches to basic horror themes, a couple of songs about some insane person who thinks he's a vampire, and then a werewolf (inspired by the Gothic soap-opera ‘Dark Shadows’) then there's one of our weird ‘what if Dicky Betts of the Allman Brothers had joined Iron Maiden in 1980’ instrumentals. Then a few more songs about frustration, misery and madness, and a final fast, driving rock/metal number called ‘Tactical Air-War’, which will be sung by Bob Wright of Brocas Helm!”

Northern superstitions, ghosts and darkness over the black forests. This album is haunted!

To those of you unfamiliar with the legendary UK radio DJ John Peel, he was responsible for inviting a succession of then unknown, highly extreme hardcore/punk/metal bands to lay down tracks to air on his national UK radio show. Causing intense debate at the time as members of the public were aurally assaulted by the most extreme music they had ever heard, John Peel continued his hands on support to the fledgling scene for the next four years.
VASAELETH – "Crypt Born And Tethered To Ruin" $12
Pretty much the darkest and most evil sounding death metal band to recently surface, Vasaeleth are about as non-technical, non-produced and non-easy listening as it gets within the genre of death metal. By upholding the ancient tradition of wretched old school atmospheric death metal and presenting a style of death metal that truly embodies what death metal should portray, “Crypt Born & Tethered To Ruin” is a monument within U.S. underground death metal and will solidify Vasaeleth’s position within the elite of said death metal scene.

W.A.I.L. - "W.A.I.L." $10
"Conceptualized around the letters of the acronymic band moniker, W.A.I.L. (Wisdom through Agony into Illumination and Lunacy), the debut album of this Finnish band delves through a five piece journey of murky and crushing soundscapes. On this first part of self-titled full-lengths, W.A.I.L. explains its meaning from a wholly personal perspective. The exceptional name accompanies exceptional music and therefore W.A.I.L. gives a mouth to something that absorbs conventions of black, death, doom & heavy metal - but the entity speaks with only one unique voice and that voice does speak indeed, because the wine of Satan has got them drunk. Having more than a strong faith in their own material and, above all, not wanting any outsider to intervene with the release at the time, the debut was originally self-released on vinyl in fall 2009. Now that the LP version is down to its last copies, AAP releases a cd version with an improved mastering & layout to spread the material further."

"Loss" is a completely stunning display of epic, world building Pagan black metal, burning with the fires of England's ancient culture and antiquity. Brilliantly captured in Romania by Negura Music, the recording sessions reveal an otherworldly tone and rich atmosphere that hasn't been this majestically sculpted since the formative years of Emperor. "Loss" is a total escape from the modern complexities and uninspired cookie-cutter "product" turned out by the current black metal scene, to embrace the true power of a time that was alive with conviction and musical exploration. Traditional/folk instrumentation, soaring guitar/synth harmonies, and tortured vocals ride upon the dense aura so brilliantly created by Wodensthrone.

YOB - "The Unreal Never Lived" $10
2005 album, Metal Blade Records
YOB - "The Illusion of Motion" $10
2004 album, Metal Blade Records
YOB – "The Great Cessation" $12
The return of doom metal legends YOB sees Mike Scheidt and co. deliver the pinnacle Yob album. “The Great Cessation” marks the return of one of the most respected doom metal bands today resulting in one of the most triumphant moments in doom metal to be heard all year. After the many trials and tribulations Scheidt had to endure concerning his previous pre-resurrected Yob band (in which we, along with Schedit, are technically not allowed to mention because of legalities – but you should know who they are obviously), it was natural that Schedit (along with longtime Yob drummer Travis Foster and new bass player Aaron Reiseberg) would inevitably pen the heaviest, darkest, and most oppressive sounding Yob album to date. Recorded and produced by Sanford Parker, who has given Yob their best production/sounding album to date, “The Great Cessation” also sees Yob deliver their most varied sounding album. With the behemoth-like monolithically paced traditional “cosmic” doom sounds that have helped define Yob’s sound over the years (along with the band’s tendencies to write songs that average ten minutes in length) which continue to resonate on “The Great Cessation”, Yob also incorporate new elements that give “The Great Cessation” a pummeling energetic vibe like no other Yob album, while at the same time, delivering even more plunging abysmal dirge-like histrionics that go so far as to even render moments on “The Great Cessation” as blasphemous and evil (as in the track “Silence Of Heaven”). In true Yob tradition, the album ends with the 20-minute title track (what some have even dubbed the Yob ballad!) which ends the album in that surging victorious moment; in the most epic of moments.
YOB – "Atma" Digipack $13
Following up their triumphant comeback album “The Great Cessation”, YOB have once again created another opus of doom metal mastery that will go down as one of the great American doom metal albums of our age (even though you can pretty much say that with any album within YOB’s repertoire). But with “Atma” the Eugene, Oregon three-piece, led by vocalist guitarist Mike Scheidt, have unleashed a new level of dynamics and depth with an album in which many will call the band’s magnum opus. Transcending (there’s that word again) the foreboding darkness and oppression that was “The Great Cessation”, “Atma” sees YOB continue their soul searching cycle of reaching that higher state of being through five crushing spiritually levitating tracks of pure doom metal mastery. The word “Atma” is defined as the existence of the core of the soul and that the highest value of knowledge comes from one’s true self. In turn, “Atma” is the culmination of YOB’s career that has reached a current self-reflective peak in their musical journey. Featuring a guest appearance by Scott Kelly of NEUROSIS and artwork by Stevie Floyd of DARK CASTLE, and packaged in a gorgeously designed digipack designed by Aaron Edge.
