Please have a look at some of our latest releases since the last newsletter, which had information on our biggest release of Master

Cerebrum (Greece) - Iridium (Technical Death Metal)

Greek technical death metal stalwarts release a mind-boggling album of intense and complex death metal music that doesn't abandon soul and emotive values in favour of technicality. This is momentum-heavy, rhythmic and visceral death metal that remains challenging while not disrupting flow or memorability. This quality seems long forgotten in the race of being the fastest or most flamboyant, and that is the very reason this experienced band that once boasted of having a Nile member, George Kollias, in their ranks, stands out from the pack. With stunning artwork from Costin Chioreanu ( At The Gates ) and special mastering from Colin Marston ( Gorguts ), everything is ensured to provide maximum clarity despite prevailing (and essential) chaos, while retaining a human touch all along.

Lineup - 
Mike Papadopoulos - Guitar 
Jim Touras - Guitar, Vocals 
Dekfalion Dimos - Drums 
George Skalkos - Bass ( Dead Congregation

Artwork by Costin Chioreanu ( At The Gates , Arch Enemy )
Mastering by Colin Marston ( Gorguts )

Dødsferd (Greece) - Diseased Remnants Of A Dying World (Black Metal) 

Greek black metal heroes Dødsferd have been toiling hard in the underground, releasing albums with untainted passion and bold vision. Be it their raw black metal sound that they started off with, or their excursion into DSBM and black/punk styles, they've maintained that all along. On their latest album, they've further refined the sound and take the best elements from everything that they've been known for and much more. The songs are perfectly tempered and resonate with familiar emotions of anguish, hopelessness, and contempt for humanity and its capability for committing despicable acts time and again. This is a dark and fiery album rife with palpable emotions with shades of melancholy and despair. It is a testament to the expressive power this style holds without straying too far from its core sound.

Line up - 
Wrath - All vocals, rhythm and lead guitars 
Neptunus - Bass 
Setesh - Rhythm and lead guitars, solos, acoustic guitar

Nattravnen (US/UK) - Kult Of The Raven (Dark Death Metal) 

Original Death and Massacre vocalist Kam Lee gives one of his best performances here. Nattravnen is about the legend of Night Raven, for which Kam has written an actual story, in addition to complete lyrics of the album. Jonny Petterson of Heads For The Dead , Wombbath has created sublime music that is death metal laced with black metal and atmospheric doom elements, while being devastatingly heavy in his trademark style. Together the duo has concocted not only one of the most interesting death metal albums of this era, but also one with rare lasting value and superior musicianship. This is essentially dark death metal with better expression and scope. Juanjo Castellano of Revel In Flesh and Carnation fame is responsible for the magnificent album artwork and even the label owner Kunal Choksi chipped in with the band logo. All in all, this is one of the most important releases to come out which sets new standards for the style altogether.

Line up -
Kam Lee - Vocals and lyrics (ex- Death , ex- Massacre , The Grotesquery )
Jonny Pettersson - All instruments ( Heads For The Dead , Wombbath , Henry Kane )
