Exclusive Double Interview - Abyssal + Carcinoma.

Interview by Trevor Proctor.

The UK’s presence within underground extreme music is continuing to grow at a very satisfying rate, one label that regularly contributes to this growth is Goatprayer Records. Goatprayer was the first label to physically release music from Vacivus, Bone Tomb, Hegemony and Cryptworm so it’s fair to say the label has played, and will continue to play, a pivotal role in the shaping of extreme music, both nationally and internationally.

Exclusive Full LP Stream + Interview - Disembowel - Plagues and Ancient Rites.

Regularly featured here at The Lair of Filth, Chile is a country whose contribution to, and significance within; our underground should never be understated. Whether it’s stalwart Chilean bands like Ammit, Slaughtbbath and Unaussprechlichen Kulten or more recent additions to the Chilean horde such as Oraculum, Athanatos and Praecognitvm there’s no doubting this is a country that regularly punches above its weight.
One recent addition to this Chilean horde is Disembowel from Melipilla in Southern Chile. Disembowel first came to a higher degree of prominence when Iron Bonehead Productions released a CD version of their debut EP, ‘Act of Invocation’ in July 2017. Now Iron Bonehead Productions is set to bring us a vinyl LP edition of Disembowel’s debut album, ‘Plagues and Ancient Rites’ which will cement the band’s place in Chilean underground history.
I was given the opportunity to interview the band, along with the chance of exclusively streaming the album ahead of its release on Friday 2nd March. I’d like to express my immense appreciation to PK from Iron Bonehead Productions and N T Birk who looks after their PR for their help and permission in doing so. Now read on for an interview with Disembowel along with that exclusive full LP stream which is available below.

Artist Profile with Mark Riddick - Riddickart.

Last year I had the honour and pleasure of creating artist profiles with two of the underground's most talented, prolific and respected artists.
In May the first was created in conjunction with Alex MORKH Shadrin from Nether Temple Design who is also an active member of Vhorthax, Serpentrance and Sickrites. The second artist profile was published in July and featured Daniel Corcuera (Nekronikon) who, in addition to being an extremely talented artist and tattooist is also a member of Chilean band, Slaughtbbath.
Due to the popularity of these features I approached another exceptionally talented artist, Mark Riddick, who is one of the busiest and most respected artists around. In addition to his work as an artist Mark is also a past/present member of several bands, including Fetid Zombie, Macabra and Grave Wax. Mark's output as a musician is almost as prolific as his artwork so, to this end, this profile is also interspersed with active streams of his music.
It is with huge honour along and eternal thanks to Mark that I can now reveal our latest artist profile.
Read on for an in-depth profile featuring several examples of Mark's work as an artist, along with multiple music streams from his many bands.
I'd like to express huge thanks to Mark for his time, effort and keenness to participate along with the high volume of top quality artwork, music and answers he generously provided me with.
I (Trevor) and The Lair of Filth are also immensely proud to be displaying the Lair of Filth logo and artwork (above) that Mark created specifically for us - these, along with everything else, are HUGELY APPRECIATED.

Grandiose Malice - The Eternal Infernal - Press Release + Track Stream.

Press Release by Nathan T Birk.

Article by Trevor Proctor.

Hells Headbangers is proud to present Grandiose Malice's first (and final) album, 'The Eternal Infernal,' on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Grandiose Malice's 'The Eternal Infernal' is the final will and testament of Steve Childers, otherwise widely known in the metal underground as Tregenda, founding guitarist of the legendary Black Witchery. Worldwide, Childers was revered as a master of stark simplicity, his riffs burrowing immediately into the brain with total violence and force, but underneath all that sturm und drang lay a master songwriter. Sadly, Childers departed this mortal coil on February 2nd, 2016.
