#BAZUndergroundUpdates CXLII

3 min read

Well, Christmas is behind us and New Year is ahead! Of course, we know that even if time is going by fast there is always that one thing that keeps recurring every week, right?

So, let’s see what’s out there…

HPGD Even if Christmas is over, the Christmas sale over at Horror Pain Gore Death Productions is nowhere done and they are still offering 35% off of all CD´s, vinyl and cassettes, and there isn’t even a discount code needed because the discount is automatically applied at checkout! Head over here to check out the selection!

LIFEFORCE RECORDS In order to celebrate the year coming to an end as well as a thanks to all of us for a support through challenging times, there is a very last sale going on over at Lifeforce Records until December 31st, where we can save 20% on all items from their Bandcamp store with the code endof2022. Head over here to place your order, which will all be shipped in early January, except for orders with preorder items.

NEUROT RECORDINGS The weekly Pay What You Can continues as always over at Neurot Recordings, and this week’s album pick is No Wilderness Deep Enough by the one and only Steve Von Till! Head over here to claim your copy, and simply play what you can!

DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN Short and simple message from Dunkelheit Produktionen, use the code CDSALE over here to claim 20% discount of all DC´s!

SELF MUTILATION SERVICES The winter campaign is still going strong over at Self Mutilation Services, however, there are only a few days late to claim the 50% discount with the code winter50! Head over here to check it out!

STANGARIGEL Featuring the guitarist from the great Slovakian Black Metal group Malokarpatan, Stangarigel put out their debut record Na Severe Srdca back in January. Now there’s a limited number of vinyl copies to be had of the album via Into The Night. If you want to fill your room with Metal that sounds like it was birthed in a magical forest by orcs (extremely proficient orcs) You can purchase the album here or listen in full.

WRETCHED FATE Following their well-received 2019 debut Fleshletting Sweden’s brutal Death Metal unit Wretched Fate have announced their follow up on Redefining Darkness Recordings. Carnal Heresy will be released on the 24th of February. You can listen to a preview track here and pre-order the album.

ROTTEN SOUND Finland’s appropriately named Rotten Sound will put out their latest Grindcore offering via Season of Mist on the 15th of March. Until then you can enjoy a preview track from the album here where you can also pre-order a copy.

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.

Now during the very last days of the year there appear to be even more campaigns, discounts and goodie offers out there we absolutely should take advantage of. With this Underground Updates article being the last one of this year as well, all of us with the BAZ team would like to wish all of our readers a very happy New Year!
