FOSSILIZATION Hailing from São Paulo – Brazil, Death Metal duo Fossilization released their debut EP He Whose Name Was Long Forgotten in 2021. Now Italy’s Everlasting Spew Records have put out two 2nd pressings on vinyl — one of which is almost sold-out already, so don’t dilly dally. If you want some bone-crushing Death Metal head over here, where you can listen in full and grab a copy.
INHERITS THE VOID Italy’s Avant-garde Music have just put out their latest release of mind-melting Extreme Metal — this time in the shape of Inherits The Void and their second album The Impending Fall Of The Stars. With a title like that you can be sure that this is some complex, conceptual metal, but for sure it’s also highly aggressive and technical Black Metal for your listening pleasure. Head over here to listen to the album in full and pick up a limited CD copy.
SCALP Labelling themselves as “West Coast Death Violence” California’s Scalp certainly pull no punches with their aggressive brand of Grindcore. Their latest release Black Tar is out now on Closed Casket Activities. You can listen to the album here, get yourself a nice, shiny, limited vinyl copy, check out their forthcoming North-American tour dates and basically get your ears ruptured.
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.
