So, let’s see what’s out there…

GURTHANG Taken from the upcoming 7th full length album Hearts of the Hallow, we are now being given a real treat as the Polish black/doom metal band Gurthang premiered the first official stream for the track Structures of Constriction a few days ago. The album will be released on November 26th via Immortal Frost Productions, and once you have headed over here to check out the track, you can head over here to place your album order!

The offer includes a Name your Price on digital, as well as 25% off physical with the code autumn25. Oh and of course there is a free tracked shipment when the order consists of 3 or more CDs.
PUTREVORE Absolutely filthy Death Metal that you just can’t scrub off has found us in the form of Miasmal Monstrosity, the latest release from Putrevore on Spain’s Xtreem Music. You can listen to the album here where you’ll also find links to buy all the various formats of the newly released album, including limited vinyl.
CREEPING DEATH For Death Metal designed to smash your skull into ten thousand pieces, look no further for here come Creeping Death and their latest album The Edge of Existence, out now on MNRK Heavy. There are vinyl, CD and cassette versions to be had here where you can also enjoy the sledgehammer to the face of listening to the album.
NOCTURNAL GRAVES Just announced on Season of Mist for release on January 1st 2022 is An Outlaw’s Stant, the latest album from Australia’s Nocturnal Graves. Strap yourself in for some viciously grim Extreme Metal, blending elements of Death, Black and Thrash. The album can be pre-ordered here on three limited vinyl editions (alongside some related merch), you can also check out the preview track.
Having to pay gigantic sums for international postage is a real gear grinder. While it’s our default setting to link bandcamp pages in the case of new and pre-releases, we thought it would be helpful to add some online stores that might provide a useful alternative. So if you see a release you fancy, but it’s being sold in a far off land and you don’t want to fork out on exorbitant shipping, see if any of the links below can remedy the situation.
Napalm Records (Germany)
Throne Records (World)
