#BAZUndergroundUpdates CX

3 min read

For any other person it is just another Tuesday. For us at BAZ however and our readers it is a new Tuesday with a brand new instalment of The Underground Updates!

So, let’s see what’s out there…

NORILSK The new EP from Norilsk is now available to stream and download on Bandcamp! In celebration, the label Hypnotic Dirge Records is offering us a sweet 30% off on all previous Norilsk albums and merch until the end of May! Head right over here to get your hands on some goodies and remember to use the code Norilsk_Doom upon checkout!

DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN We all love a 10% discount, right? Dunkelheit Produktionen never fails to deliver, and you can now head over here for some discounted goodies, but make sure to have quick hands because the code May will expire on the 18th of May!

DRIFT INTO BLACK The USA-based doom-rooted Drift into Black is returning this summer with their brand new album Earthtorn! You can head over here to place your pre-order, and over here to watch The Angel of Doom music video, taken from the upcoming album.

STEVEN VON TILL We have received a reminder that Steven Von Till and his band will be hitting the american road for some solo shows in July! The cellist Helen Money will be opening on these dates, which you can find over here and here!

DEAD REGISTER For those seeking something dark, melodic and bass heavy Dead Register have just released their new album Alice on Seeing Red Records. Listeners may hear traces of Killing Joke, A Perfect Circle and Paradise Lost in these husband and wife led gloom merchants. You can pick up a vinyl copy here and listen to the album in full.

MUTILATRED Determined to Rot — the new album by Ohio’s Mutilatred — cuts right to the chase, with pulverising death metal. If you’re after a violent, gory battery of a listening experience, check this new release — on Redefining Darkness Records here, where you can pick up a copy on CD or vinyl.

JUNGLE ROT Death metal veterans Jungle Rot have just released their latest album — A Call to Arms — on Unique Leader Records. Fans of Celtic Frost, Vader, Obituary and S.O.D can expect a mighty fine, grisly time. Head over here to pick up a digital copy and listen to the album in full.

AM HIMMEL Just announced on Roadburn Records, Am Himmel will release their debut album — As Eternal As The Starless Kingdom Of Sorrow — on 30 June. Showcasing the band’s blend of shoegaze, raw black metal and drone, the album will appeal to fans of Urfaust, Lurker Of Chalice and Xasthur. You can pre-order the album on limited vinyl here.

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.
