Set for release on February 4th, through Dark Descent Records, Corpsessed's Abysmal Thresholds is one hell of an album. It's not just great Finnish Death Metal; it's great Death Metal, period. Trevor Proctor reviewed the album here, and I can tell you that even though by he and myself heard the album for review, both of us have purchased a physical copy; yes it is a very good album. Trevor also had the chance to interview the Finnish death-machine, and the result makes for fantastic reading. Read on, prepare to have your appetite whetted, and then get yourself a copy of Abysmal Thresholds!

Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius DLP (2014)
Iron Bonehead Productions.
Review by Trevor Proctor
Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius is the second album from the UK’s underground death metal group Abyssal, following their 2012 debut album “Denouement”. Novit was initially self-released by the band via their Bandcamp page, but subsequently snapped up for release on CD by Profound Lore Records in April 2013, and on cassette by Exitium Productions in May 2013. January 2014 will see the album getting the vinyl treatment from the excellent Iron Bonehead Productions, a label whose name is synonymous with quality underground death metal.

Lie in Ruins – Towards Divine Death (2014)
Dark Descent Records
Review by Jude Felton
Without sounding like I’m flogging the proverbial dead horse, which in itself seems to me like a pointless pastime, I’ll tell you right now that we’re entering the realms of death metal, Finland and Dark Descent Records. If past experience has told me anything, it’s that this usually adds up to something special and you can rest assured that Towards Divine Death is something special.
Without a doubt, two of the best short films of recent years have been Fatal Pictures, Worm and Familiar. Very dark, yet with a rich vein of pitch black humor, both films, which were written and directed by Richard Powell, were both among the best I have seen. Now Fatal Pictures and Red Sneakers Media are looking for your assistance in funding the third and final short film, entitled Heir. Once again written and directed by Powell, produced by Zach Green, with Mark Roussel, Ron Basch and Powell, the film will star the wonderful Bill Oberst Jr. and the quite terrific Robert Nolan. Get the full lowdown after the break.
