It sure is a beautiful Tuesday upon us, isn’t it?

So, let’s see what’s out there…

DESTRÖYER 666 Now releasing a brand-new video Deströyer 666 has now made available to us the official video to the titled track of their freshly released album Never Surrender! Check out the video over here at the official Season of Mist YouTube channel, and of course place your album order right here!

SELF MUTILATION SERVICES In order to close the year, Self Mutilation Services has decided to gift their followers with something really special. With the discount code winter50 you can now get a whopping 50% off on everything, yes, you read that right, everything! Many titles are almost sold out so make sure you head straight over here right now!

BLACK LION RECORDS Another label eager to close this year with a bang are our good friends over at Black Lion Records and so they have announced 50% off all current stock until the end of the year! Head over here to check out the selection and remember to use the code blacklion50!

DESTRÖYER 666 Another band proud to announce an upcoming European tour is Deströyer 666 who will start their rampage in Germany on March 3rd and will wreak havoc on 15 more stages during the tour! The group will be playing in support of their freshly released album Never Surrender and we hear the tickets will become available soon, so we encourage you all to keep an eye open on this one!

ARCHSPIRE Canadian tech death metal group Archspire has announced new European tour dates together with Benighted, Psycroptic and Entheos thank you very much! Happening in March 2023, the trek will blast through 15 countries and make sure you have quick hands because the tickets became available yesterday over here!

WOEWARDEN Approaching fast is Woewarden´s Australian tour alongside the mighty Christ Dismembered, and there is no denying that they will be joined by a number of Australia’s finest! Taking place in January and February, we encourage you to check out the tickets!

OBVURT For anyone looking for some inventive, head-splitting Death Metal to get their week off and running check out Triumph Beyond Adversity by Obvurt, out now on Unique Leader Records. Hammering power, mixed with technicality and jazzy interludes awaits you here.

GOSUDAR / MALIGNANT ALTAR UK label Me Saco Un Ojo Records are putting out an intriguing underground Death Metal split release, bringing together Russia’s Gosudar and US unit Malignant Altar. Judging by the preview track, available here, this promises to be a great, skull-splitting delight of nasty Death Metal barbarity. The record will be out on the 16th of December. You can pre-order from the link above.

OCCULSED Following their debut album—2021’s Crepitation Of Phlegethon— savage Death Metal butchers Occulsed are back via Italy’s Everlasting Spew Records with Parturition Of Adulteration, a collection of remastered demos and a new track to give you an auditory companion to the gates of hell opening up, just in time for Christmas! Check out the preview track here, where you can also pre-order a copy due for release on the 23rd of December.

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.
