September 15th is the release date announced by Soulseller Records for the reissue of REPUGNANT´s great debut full-length (and only full-length so far) “Epitome Of Darkness”, originally released in 2006.
This gem of morbid, obscure, evil, repulsive, Swedish death metal will be reissued on a very limited edition of 500 copies on clear vinyl with insert.
Unfortunately the band has been on hiatus for a long time and I (and many more) hope that the band deliver another release a in a near future.
As many of you already know, singer Tobias Forge revealed the secret (not so secret to many) his involvement in the band Ghost behind the mask of singer Papa Emeritus, but who cares anyway, (Ghost fans maybe) a new REPUNGANT album would be great! In the meantime don’t miss this! Pre-orders and more info here.
Debemur Morti Productions announced the upcoming release of a new ARCHGOAT ep entitled “Eternal Damnation of Christ”, containing two brand new tracks, “Black Mass Mysticism” and the title track”.
It will be released on 7" EP and will be available exclusively on their upcoming live dates (touring with Bölzer, Svartidaudi and Eggs of Gomorrh), and according to the label, this EP gives us a small foretaste of what we can expect on their next full-length album, to be released in 2018.

Discovering obscure and really interesting bands among millions of bands from time to time and in unexpectedly form is a rewarding feeling, and this is the case of AKOUPHENOM.
This band from A Coruña, Spain, is a young band active since 2015. That same year the band released their EP "Flesh Sublimation" on CD and digital, and last year they released a split with La Hija Del Carroñero, on pro-tape and digital.
The band knows how to create dark and intense atmospheres through its dense, sinister black death metal. The songs on "Flesh Sublimation", usually of more than 10 minutes length are well structured and show a good variety of extreme and occasionally unusual riffs and rhythms, accompanied by a rabid vocal assault to bring the listener a true fusion of chaos, darkness and destruction.
AKOUPHENOM is currently recording the debut album, which will surely come out at the end of the year or beginning of 2018. The band is also looking for a new bass player, as their former bass player Silvara has recently left the band.
Take a closer look and embrace the dark music of Akouphenom, look away if you fear to experience sonic and morbid mayhem.

November 3rd is the international release date for the new KAWIR album. Entitled “Exilasmos” it will come out via Iron Bonehead Productions on vinyl, CD and tape, and the album is going to be awesome.
I venture to say that after listening to the first advance track “Agamemnon”. The song is simply brilliant! epic and melodic, alternating with violent speed and great furious/dramatic vocals, another gem of the Hellenic Black Metal!
Lyrically “the record is conceptually about the tragic dynasties of the house of Lavdakides (Oedipus Tyrannus) and the house of Atreus. Both dynasties nearly exterminated themselves, and all these violent and inhuman acts brought forth the wrath of Zeus and the curses were consequently laid upon the whole bloodline. "Exilasmos" in Ancient Hellenic Language means calming down the gods' wrath, so it perfectly describes the tragic events featured in the namesake album.”
