Death Fetishist - Clandestine Sacrament.

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Since inception in 2010 Ævangelist has been a leading creative force in extreme underground music and since the release of their debut EP ‘Oracle of Infinite Despair’ in 2011 they have also been one of the most prolific bands around, releasing four Eps, two split releases, a live album and four full length albums – aside from their debut EP and debut album all of these were released since June 2013.

Filthy Music Review - Verberis - Vexamen.

Verberis - Vexamen

Review by Trevor Proctor.

The standard of underground bands originating in New Zealand is exemplary with Heresiarch, Vassafor, Diocletian, and Ulcerate being just a few examples that spring to mind, and that’s before we even consider bands that originated in New Zealand and have since split up or relocated to other countries. Just as exemplary is the standard of music released by Iron Bonehead Productions whose release roster is competed with by very few and bettered by none. It was Iron Bonehead Productions who first brought New Zealand band, Verberis, to our attention in 2014 when they released Verberis’ demo, Vasitas, on digital formats in April and on cassette in June of the same year.

Review by Trevor Proctor.

Blood Division come from Singapore in South East Asia and formed at the start of 2009 by M. and C. with the intention of creating a hate filled and blasphemy fuelled blend of Black/Thrash and Crust Punk that is extremely violent, anti-religion and anti-political. Their first demo ‘Grip of Power’ was released on cassette at the end of 2011 in a limited quantity of 180 by Witchhammer Productions from Thailand and shortly after Blood Division played their first live show, opening for Danish band Nuclear Death Terror at a gig in Singapore.

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.

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.
