Tregenda - Grandiose Malice album details and first track reveal.

Press release by Nathan T Birk.

Article by Trevor Proctor.

Imminently, Hells Headbangers shall release 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.

Praise the Flame - Manifest Rebellion (Re-issue).

I regularly bang on about Chile’s contribution to the underground and with bands such as Pentagram, Unaussprechlichen Kulten, Hades Archer, Slaughtbbath and Oraculum coming from Chile there’s no doubting the high standard of music originating in the country - a standard matched by very few other countries. One Chilean band we need to be aware of is Santiago’s Praise the Flame
