Coming to a pair of ear-holes near you soon…

The Generations Army

The Generations Army is a young and upcoming thrash metal band from southern Sweden. They released their debut album Still Screaming in 2016 and have released single “Voices and Visions” in 2018. The band has toured Europe and has a growing fan base worldwide and at home. They are described as an explosive and energetic act that everyone will remember.

This spring and summer the band will do two short EU-tours, some local gigs and some festival shows (including “Metalsvenskan” where bands like Exodus, WASP and Rival Sons are going to play). The band plan is to record another full-length album in 2018. They are currently searching for a serious record label to work with.

New EP Voices and Visions is finally online on digital platforms, released in May 2018.

Ordinul Negru

Timisoara, Romania based occult black metallers Ordinul Negru reveal the cover artwork for their upcoming eight full-length album Faustian Nights. The artwork is once again signed by Romanian artist and close friend of the band, Alexandru Das.

Faustian Nights is scheduled to be released this Summer via Loud Rage Music, more details to be announced soon!


The UK black metal scene’s most exciting solo project, Abduction, has teamed up with one of the most promising new record labels, Clobber Records, to release his second full length release A Crown Of Curses on Friday 20th July 2018.

Constructed in isolation, A Crown Of Curses further unseals the tombs and invokes ancient spirits. Beholden to the fundamental blueprint of the genre, yet occupying fathoms of space and time not yet touched, Abduction returns to the fold once again carrying the celestial noose.

Abduction is unique in being a solo UK black metal artist who performs live. His shows are full of atmosphere and ferocity that have enraptured audiences across the UK and Europe. In August 2018, he will perform at the prestigious Bloodstock Open Air Festival.

The album will be available on CD digipak, vinyl, cassette and digitally from 20th July 2018. Continuing a journey of experimentation with black metal art aesthetics, the album promises to deliver another absorbing and harrowing trip into the depths of the human experience.


California Death Metal Horde Draghkar will release new EP The Endless Howling Abyss on July 27. The EP will be released digitally, as well as on CD format by Craneo Negro Records (500 copies) and on cassette through Nameless Grave Records (75 copies).

On The Endless Howling Abyss, Draghkar have turned up the intensity and unleashed violence in its most lethal form. The forthcoming EP is a harrowing journey through 20 minutes of pure Hell, inspired still by the classic fires of Abhorrence and Amorphis, but now flavoured by an increasing influence from the oldest days of the Greek black and death metal scenes, as well as Molested, Mercyful Fate, and more.

New song “Swallowed by the Dark” is now streaming. Listen and pre-order below.
