Filthy Music Review - Deathcult - Beasts of Faith.

Deathcult - Beasts of Faith CD / LP.

Review by Trevor Proctor.

From Zurich, Switzerland, Deathcult formed in 2010 but it would be 2012 before they released their debut recording, ‘Demo ’12, which was released by Invictus Productions as a limited edition cassette of which only 100 were ever made available. However, the standard of Death Metal featured on the demo prompted no less than three re-releases – Invictus Productions reissued the cassette in June 2014, followed by a CD edition in March 2016 which in turn was followed by a vinyl edition from Iron Bonehead Productions in May 2016.

Press Release Re-Issue Information - Conqueror (Canada) War.Cult.Supremacy DLP/DCD+DVD

Conqueror (Canada) - War.Cult.Supremacy DLP/DCD+DVD.

Full Press Release Re-Issue Information.

Conqueror began its campaign of devastation in 1992 with the union of the uncontrollable and aggressive drumming of J. Read (Cremation, Revenge, Axis of Advance) and the cacophonous guitar of R. Forster (Domini Inferi, Blasphemy). From this combination came a surge of hatred and violence yet unmatched in extreme metal. After the demo Antichrist Superiority, in which Conqueror sharpened the blades of its tools of war, the band turned its attention to crafting the one of the most cataclysmic and savage black/death records ever produced.

Caveman Cult Interview with The Lair of Filth

Floridian Black/Death band Caveman Cult has been causing a bit of a stir in our underground of late, their debut demo 'Rituals of Savagery' has been released on no less than four formats and debut album 'Savage War is Destiny' has also been released to widespread acclaim. With a split release to be shared with up-coming Irish band, 'Coscradh' also due in the future via underground label Invictus Productions I thought it was time we caught up with the band to find out a little more - read on for a full interview with drummer, Rick, and a sample of their seriously good music at the foot of the interview.

Two Way Split Review - Demonomancy / Witchcraft - Archaic Remnants of the Numinous / At the Diabolus Hour - split LP/CD.

Demonomancy/Witchcraft - Archaic Remnants of the Numinous/At the Diabolus Hour - split LP/CD.

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Nuclear War Now! Productions recently announced details of a split release due in September featuring Demonomancy from Italy and Finland’s Witchcraft. Both bands first shared a stage at NWN! Fest Vol IV in 2014 and will share a stage again at this year’s fest, and both have also joined forces to bring us what could turn out to be one of the year’s best split releases. Both bands are seen by many as being two of the most promising primitive black/death groups of recent years who could well end up being major influences on our future generation of underground music. This split will feature two tracks from Demonomancy and three from Witchcraft with the CD currently available and a vinyl edition to follow in September.

Filthy Music Review - Amphisbaena - Amphisbaena MLP + CD.

Amphisbaena - Amphisbaena MLP / CD.

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Over the years Canadian bands have supplied us with some of the best underground extreme music around with Antediluvian, Mitochondrion, Revenge and Adversarial being just a few examples of the extremely high standard of bands to originate on Canadian soil. Following months of hints and rumours another entity emerged from the Canadian underground at the tail end of 2015 in the form of Amphisbaena.

Filthy Music Review - Spire - Entropy

Spire - Entropy

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Back in June The Lair of Filth brought you details of Spire’s debut full length which is now close to its release via Iron Bonehead Productions.  Due to the high standard of music featured on ‘Entropy’ I thought it only fitting to review this highly anticipated album and also bring you a track stream. Coming from Queensland in Australia Spire has maintained a shroud of secrecy since their inception in 2007, keeping details of membership etc. minimal.

Exclusive Interview and Demo Stream - Hegemony - Demo MMXVI

Hegemony is an extreme black/death metal group that was formed in Birmingham, Alabama, in 2015. Their music has drawn comparisons to the likes of Diocletian and Revenge and with their Demo MMXVI  due for re-release via U.K. label Goatprayer Records in the coming weeks I thought it was time to try and find out a little more about this secretive group.

Filthy Music Review - Oniricous - La Caverna de Fuego.

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Oniricous is a Spanish Death Metal band that performed under the name Ghül from 2005-2011 then as Oniricous from 2011 onwards. Their first release under the name Oniricous was debut full length Ritos Diabólicos which was released on CD by Razorback Recordings in April 2013. Ritos Diabólicos was very well received, so well received that it prompted Spanish label Equinox Discos to release a vinyl version in June 2015. It was on release of this version the band first came to my attention, thanks to Eduardo from Equinox who was kind enough to send me a promotional copy. I was very impressed with Oniricous on first listen; Ritos Diabólicos is a very strong album and fully deserved the vinyl release from Equinox Discos
