Surely a new week can only mean one thing!

So, let’s see what’s out there…

SETH Now releasing a brand new live video, French black metal pioneers Seth have taken the track La Morsure du Christ from the band’s latest album which was captured by Motocultor Festival TV show and now present to us the video available via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel right here! Remember to spread the word as well as the link!

FROSTMOON ECLIPSE Last Thursday the Italian black metal band Frostmoon Eclipse had their newest EP Rustworn premiered by Immortal Frost Productions. Released last Friday the EP is currently being presented during the ongoing 15 Years of Bleakness European Tour which started on the 19th and ends on the 26th, head over here to find tickets for a show near you, and place an order for your copy of the EP here!

VUKARI It’s intense black metal time, party people. Released last month on Germany’s Vendetta Records, Omnes Nihil by Vukari is now available on black and grey vinyl. You can pick up a copy here and listen to the album in full. There are several other newly announced vinyl releases by the label. You can get to them from the link above, or visit the label’s webstore here

PARANOIA APPARITION For anyone with a taste for some gruesome gore grind, Thorn side project Paranoia Apparition have just released Phantasmic Visions. You can listen to the album here, while here you can pick up a cassette version of the album from Gurgling Gore.

BLUT AUS NORD Avantgarde black metal arises. With a vast back catalogue of over 25 year’s work behind them, France’s Blut Aus Nord have announced their latest album, Disharmonium – Undreamable Abysses, will be released on Debemur Morti Productions on the 20th of May. For now there are a number of mouth-watering vinyl editions you can pre-order here, where you can also enjoy the dark, hypnotic preview track.

HELL Having previously appeared on a number of joint releases, the brooding, atmospheric doom metal of Hell has been put together on one release. You can order Splits on cassette here now, with a double vinyl version available here to pre-order here from Gilead Media. Both links are for US distribution. Meanwhile Hell has shows planned for later in the year and EU pressings of Hell I, II, & III, as due to be available at shows, with remaining copies available at Throne Records. So keep your eyes peeled for that.

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.
