There are many ways to die but even more to kill as sonic mass murderers ABORTED elaborately explain since their forming back in 1995 and once again explicitly underline on their newest, eighth studio album “The Necrotic Manifesto”. Founding member and vocalist Sven "Svencho" de Caluwé reveals that conceptually “the album is our own take on the sordid tales of the Necronomicon, the “book of the dead”, of corpse drowned in a sauce of gore and fun covered with a good old 80’s slasher vibe.” This idea was congenially transformed into excellent artwork by Par Olofsson, who already created stunning visuals for acts like The Faceless, Exodus, Immolation, Pathology, Immortal and more.
Delicious gory fun aside, musically ABORTED mean dead serious death metal business since day one, delivering their aural blows with a maximum of versatility and hard-hitting brutality successfully melting the technical US school of Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse with the melodic incisions of European flavor obviously inspired by recently returned UK gods Carcass or even Entombed. ABORTED hack, slash, cut, grind, blast, groove, crush, rip, tear, destroy, kill in every way humanely possible and this multi-faceted approach has earned them a dedicated fanbase over the past years.
“The Necrotic Manifesto” – also produced by Jacob Hansen (who already worked with the band e.g. on 2003’s “Goremageddon” and 2011’s “Global Flatline”) – makes no exception and continues in the tradition of its much acclaimed predecessor guaranteeing you maximum gore metal pleasure. Intensity – check, brutality – check, technicality – check, inhuman savage vocals – check, keyboards – nope, bittersweet melodies – hell no, folk elements – get outta here?!?! While remaining true to themselves,
ABORTED still have a couple of macabre surprises in store spicing their renowned and respected killing spree with some bonus-carnage: First up, are guest vocalists Vincent Benett (The Acacia Strain) on “Your Entitlement Means Nothing” and Phlegeton (Wormed) on “Excremental Veracity”, sweet as rot cover versions of the incredible “Funeral Inception” (Suffocation) and “Arise” (Sepultura) as well as an entire card came (!) invented and designed by the band accompanying the album’s limited edition as Svencho details: “The card game starts off with my humble self finding the “Necrotic Manifesto” at a truck stop while taking a dump on tour, reading out passages and unleashing hell on earth. Through the card game players take on the role of a band member or crew member and have to defeat the legions of hell with their maniacal leader: the doctor! All presented with a good dose of dark humor, horror and tons of internal jokes which will get players to know the members of the band a bit better and more personal.”
Ready to shed blood and spread gallons of guts across the globe, the live Armageddon known as ABORTED will first tour the US with Kataklysm in April, followed by European release shows in May before selected mass executions during the upcoming festival season. So, better believe the self appointed “Gurgloroth” Sven de Caluwé when he says “get ready mankind, ABORTED is coming right at ya!”
Formed in Hobart, Tasmania in 1999 Psycroptic wrote intensively for the months following their formation, crafting the material for the debut album 'The Isle of Disenchantment'. This album was self released in January 2001 to overwhelming response from the metal underground which helped spread the Psycroptic name all around the world.
'Scepter of the Ancients' saw the light of day in 2003 through Unique Leader Records and with it Psycroptic further define their sound. After several years of playing Australian stages, 2004 saw Psycroptic leave their home shores for the first time, touring with death metal legends Dismember throughout Europe.
Much of 2005 was spent touring Australia, and preparing material for 'Symbols of Failure'. Released in early 2006, the album was followed by extensive touring – 3 full European tours and several Australian tours – sharing the stage with such acts as Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Nile, Behemoth, Kataklsym, Black Dahlia Murder amoung others.
The Tasmanian Devils made their long overdue North American live debut on the 2008 Summer Slaughter tour, which has been their most successful tour to date. The forth album 'Ob(servant) will be released Worldwide on October 14th on Nuclear Blast (and on Stomp in Australia and New Zealand).
Mancunian slam crew INGESTED have built a reputation as one of the most savage death metal acts to come out of the UK for a long time. Punishing beat-downs, epic riffage, guttural vocals and blistering speed are just some of the weapons in Ingested's musical arsenal.
2015 now sees Ingested return with their heaviest offering yet in the form of "The Architect Of Extinction", mixed by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy) and featuring mind blowing artwork from Toshihiro Egawa (who also did the artwork for the band's debut record).
"The Architect Of Extinction" will be released January 12th on Century Media Records in Europe.
Jason Evans (vocals) comments: "It's took us three albums and two EP's to find our sound, our identity as a band. This album is Ingested in it's purest form; nihilistic, slamming death metal. Every lyric, guitar riff and drum beat on this album is delivered with utter sincerity, we fucking mean it this time. This is the album we have always wanted to create, this is THE ARCHITECT OF EXTINCTION.
Once again we enlisted the amazing art talents of Toshihiro Egawa, who we worked with on our debut album "Surpassing the Boundaries of Human Suffering" to produce yet another stunning, brutal masterpiece to compliment the audio assault we've captured on disc. This album was mixed by Christian Donaldson (Beneath the Massacre, The Last Felony and Cryptopsy) and features guest appearances by Julian Kersey (Aegaeon), Taylor Wientjes (The Kennedy Veil), James Schuster (Eighty Thousand Dead / Delusional Parasitosis) and Alex Terible (Slaughter to Prevail) who have contributed their very own brand of brutality to this record. This is our most definitive work to date and we can't wait to unleash it on the world."

Arkaik's debut album, “Reflections Within Dissonance”, displayed a unique marriage of superior craftsmanship and a forward-thinking promise rarely seen in a band this young. Their sophomore album, “Metamorphignition” builds on their progressive and adventurous predilections and aims to transcend the boundaries of “technical Death Metal” even as it revels in the sub-genre's wanton brutality. The band's founder Jared Christianson (vocals) has pooled an immensely talented core of musicians around the band in its over ten years of progression, including emerging drum phenom Alex Bent (who has already done session work for Decrepit Birth/Rings Of Saturn/Battlecross), bassist Ivan Mungia (Deeds of Flesh), and lead/rhythm guitarists Miguel Esparza and Greg Paulson. Having already toured North America supporting Black Dahlia Murder in 2011, and Cannibal Corpse in 2012, they have been touring ever since creating their own enthusiastic fanbase and pushing the genre forward. Now Arkaik has released another crushing onslaught in the form of their newest full-length release "Lucid Dawn" in late 2015, their third Unique Leader Record release to date. Looking forward with ever increasing determination the band continues to seek out new boundaries of extremity and creativity – and then annihilate them.
Death Metal band from South Wales
Vale of Pnath
Definition: The Vale of Pnath is a vast pit in the underworld.The vale is filled with a mountain-sized heap of bones and is the spot into which all the ghouls of the waking world cast the refuse of their feastings. Enormous worm-like creatures burrow through the vale and often carry helpless victims to the vale, where they are left to die.
Torn The Fuck Apart
Since the formation of Kansas City’s TTFA, the band has been busy ripping people’s faces off with a relentless onslaught of brutality. With the release of their EP, "Skinned Alive” in 2006 and consistently playing shows in and around the region, the band began to build a steady following. In July of 2009 they released their next self recorded album, "Gods of Gore" and embarked on an east coast tour with metal veterans Monstrosity in support of it. April 2012 saw the release of "...The Dissection of Christ", their first full length studio effort. The band continued to grow their fan base by playing both locally and regionally in support of their new record. In the course of their campaign to bring their brand of death metal to society, they have had the honor to share the stage with such acts as: Morbid Angel, Cryptopsy, Origin, Nile, Dying Fetus, Vader, Deicide, Gorgasm, 1349, Kataklysm, Belphegor, Jungle Rot, Broken Hope, Vital Remains, and many more. In June 2014 TTFA released their second full length studio recording, "Sexually Transmitted Torture" on Ossuary Industries, and hit the road for a west coast tour in support of the new album. In 2016 the band partnered with Extreme Management Group and began work on their next release. Recently, they have just completed work on their third studio album and are anticipating it to be ready for the masses by early 2018. Keep checking out TTFA online for updates and to see when you can catch them devastate a stage near you!
Start off with surgically precise but very groove focused guitar riffs, lay them on top of a percussion section as sturdy as a field of steel girders, but as intricate and technical as a handmade Swiss grandfather clock, then throw in a heaping helping of raw, punchy, and oh so violent roaring vocals, and you have yourself Ahtme (formerly “The Roman Holiday”). Forming in 2005 in Kansas City Missouri, the band brings a signature and unique sound to the table. Relying more on groovy, and catchy riffs to grab their twisted audience by their necks, and slam them to the ground. The band promises to always come at the listener with something you can bang your head to, all while maintaining the guarantee to pick even the thickest of tech scabs off of the arms of those interested only in speed and precision.
