3 min read

Oh yes, one more Tuesday, and there is nowhere to run from the latest instalment of The Underground Updates!

So, let’s see what’s out there…

NERVE ALTAR From what little information we received, we do understand that Nerve Altar has added clearance boxes, one being LPs mystery box and the other EPs mystery box! Head over here for LPs and here for EPs!

IMPURE WILHELMINA Having previously announced French tour dates, Impure Wilhelmina is now kicking off the Antidote Europe Tour at the Passagers du Zinc in Besançon and we will get a chance to see the band in France during the months of May and June. They will further continue their European journey in August and September with labelmates Crippled Black Phoenix! All together that makes 22 mind blowing shows in 9 different countries! Make sure you look up the dates and places, as well as you can head over here to listen to their freshly released album Antidote on the Season of Mist official YouTube channel!

IMMORTAL FROST PRODUCTIONS On the 3rd of this month Immortal Frost Productions premiered the second official music video for the track Amaurosis by the depressive black metal band Lichtblick from Austria! Taken from their newly released second full length album Abkehr, you can head over here to check it out and of course over here to place your order!

DEMONICAL For those with a death metal itch to scratch, Sweden’s Demonical have released their seventh full-length album onPoland’s Agonia Records. Mass Destroyer can be purchased on several special-edition formats — while there’s t-shirts and hoodies to go with the band’s latest release. If the band’s own description of a “vicious Demonical assault of Stockholm-style death metal madness and beyond” sounds appealing, head over here to pick up a copy and listen to the album in full.

CORPUS CHRISTII Portuguese black metal veterans Corpus Christii will release their ninth full-length record on 13 May via Immortal Frost Productions. The Bitter End Of Old is available to pre-order on limited CD and vinyl editions — all of which are selling through fast. Check them out here — where you can also listen to the preview track, “Unearthly Forgotten Memory”.

CAR BOMB Brooklyn’s math metal mind melters Car Bomb have got some snazzy, new merch available on their bandcamp page. Two new t-shirt designs with a pastiche of the fashion brand Champion’s logo are among the new additions. Head over here to see the full range

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.
