Wouldn’t you know it! It’s Tuesday all over again!
So, let’s see what’s out there…
DEATHGASM In 2015, the comedy horror hit Deathgasm us straight in our little faces and now the world of heavy metal and horror is soon to get louder, bloodier and more frenzied as we draw closer to the launch of the highly anticipated, crowd-funding campaign for Deathgasm 2: Goremageddon! This fun little project is directed by Jason Lei Howden and that’s only the tip of the iceberg as the people behind it are many more! However, as mentioned before it is crowd-funded, so surely we can all stand together and fund what is needed by heading right over here and placing our pledges! Of course, you won’t be sitting and just waiting to see the film in exchange for your pledge, no no, there are some cool looking rewards available too so make sure to give them your support!
NEUROT RECORDINGS It never stops over at Neurot Recordings and that’s just one thing we love about the label! This week’s album pick for the weekly segment Pay What You Can is Solidarity by Tone! Head over here right now to claim your very own copy and simply pay what you can!

SILVA Minesottan blackened melodic death metal outfit Silva have just released new album Forgotten Sanctuary on Black Lion Records. For fans of Amon Amarth and At The Gates in the Swedish melodeath stylings, you can expect some exquisitely delivered powerful riffs and licks in here to enjoy as you contemplate the world burning. Listen in full here and pick up a copy.
VERTEBRA ATLANTIS Italy’s I, Voidhanger Records have put out some of the most fascinating and varied extreme metal of recent times and they’ve got behind another gem in latest release on the label A Dialogue with the Eeriest Sublime by Vertebra Atlantis. Put together by Italian metal wizkid Gabriele Gramaglia (otherwise known as Cosmic Putrefaction) who contributes rhythm guitars, lead guitars, acoustic guitars, synths, additional vocals, orchestration and sound design, GG is ably accompanied by RR on drums, main vocals and GS on rhythm guitars. The end result? Grand extreme metal brilliance. Name checking Emperor and Gorguts in the press release, you could also throw some early Opeth into the intricate metal stew of black, death and doom. Check out the album in full here, you can buy a copy in various formats, including limited edition vinyl. I may be compelled to do the same myself.
CEREMONIAL BLOODBATH So apparently war metal is a thing and within that category lives Ceremonial Bloodbath. Formed out of members of Scum Division Cult, Nightfucker, Radioactive Vomit and more, the groups latest album Genesis of Malignant Entropy (out November 17th on Sentient Ruin Laboratories) certainly does have an air of being brutally bludgeoned to death while the earth convulses through a bloody apocalypse. Check out the preview track here where you can pre-order a copy on various formats.
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.
Direct Merch (Australia)
Napalm Records (Germany)
Throne Records (World)
As we move into the final full week of Spooktober, it’s hard to imagine how the entire month pretty much passed by in just a few days, isn’t it? But November is just around the corner, and we are sure the new month will bring us the same, if not more metal goodness as Spooktober did!
