Dom Zły was established in late Autumn of 2016 in Puławy, Poland. The inner need to express oneself about everyday realities surrounding us was the main reason for starting this project. The climate of the music is the result of the band members’ common fascination with alternative music and its broad horizons, inclined more towards the heavier or extreme side.
Dom Zły is the crust vision of a degenerated world, condemning the existing order.
The project consists of members of bands such as Kaldera, Hidden World, The Feral Trees, Weedcraft, Panacea and Words Mean Nothing.
Only five months after the release of their last album 'Tando Ashanti', Danish Hardcore / Crust / Post Black Metal terrors Hexis will release a brand new EP called 'XII' coming out on September 29th for 10' vinyl & Digital through Division Records (Closet Disco Queen, Papertank, Process Of Guilt, Unfold…), Moment Of Collapse Records (Cranial, Heaven In Her Arms, Meraine, Red Apollo, etc,..), Crown & Throne Ltd (Primitive Man) et Truthseeker Music (Howl, Human Future, Yards…).
On this new 5 songs EP, Hexis strikes harder, hit faster and takes no prisoner. These guys are not doing a sort of post black metal hipster shit, goddamn no. They are actually the best representation of what black metal has to be in 2017: fierce, relentless, uncompromising, dangerous & wicked. Their style is still firmly rooted in a sort of hardcore urgency, but the atmosphere on this songs is so thick that you’ll somehow find yourself walking in a forest, surrounded by deep fog, unable to see anything, but clearly hearing the wolves all around you.
This EP is the real deal if you’re searching for pure darkness In the meantime, the band unveiled a few days ago a first excerpt from this upcoming effort with "Nefarious" available right now on Bandcamp.
For the record... Denmark, 2010: the idea of creating a hardcore black metal band emerged in the mind of Filip, actual singer and leader of Hexis. His goal was to give birth to a band playing "as dark and heavy music as possible and go on crazy amount of tours around the world and release tons of different records". And it has been successful. Indeed, Hexis’ music is as scary as thrilling, as introspective as explosive and gives an idea of what addiction to darkness could be. To satisfy it, Hexis plays about 200 gigs per year. Among all these gigs and the thousands of kilometres swallowed, Hexis has released 10 records in 7 years, including 3 EP's, 4 splits (w/Primitive Man, This Gift is a Curse, As We Draw, Euglena and Redwood Hill) and 2 full-length albums (Abalam and Tando Ashanti). Hexis is not just music, it is a way of life, a mindset, and every note that reaches your brain will prove it.

Greek hardcore crew, Sarabante, has issued a track from their incoming second LP, "Poisonous Legacy", which is set for release through Southern Lord in June. Tune in and hear the band take their tense, foreboding sound found to new lows, mirroring and capturing the anguish of their native country in the track "Mass Grave."
Stream Sarabante's "Mass Grave" at THIS LOCATION.
The gripping, lamenting melodies of the guitars on "Poisonous Legacy" define the album's sound, and speak volumes about Sarabante's world view. Eloquently miserable harmonies soar then hammer down on the listener, constantly seeking nervous and reverberating moments to amplify and meld into their modern crust motion, involving copious amounts of righteous d-beat and clarity amongst the crunch. Few have done it so well since the advent of Tragedy and His Hero Is Gone, and Sarabante is undoubtedly creating their own approach with impressive, aggressive songwriting, and forceful momentum. Their meticulous attention to mournful atmospheres is maintained across the twenty-six minutes, filling "Poisonous Legacy" with rampaging passages and brooding breakdowns, and making the record a thrilling and powerful statement from Sarabante.
After forming in Athens in late 2006, the Summer of 2011 saw Sarabante release their first album "Remnants". The LP was released by Sara Records, the band's own label, followed by a limited edition CD by Southern Lord. This was followed by an Eastern European tour and numerous local live shows, as well as 2013's Έρμαια Των Καιρών / Under The Shadows, a 7" EP via Man in Decline Records.
Heavily influenced by oppression and trying to withstand the ongoing crisis in their home country Greece, Sarabante's new music is forged in times of extreme austerity, which has without doubt blackened their focus. As a result, the music on "Poisonous Legacy" is darker, filthier, more straightforward, and more destructive than we've heard before. Featuring grim artwork by Karouk, "Poisonous Legacy" was mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Nails, Obituary) and will be released on vinyl and digital through Southern Lord, June 10th.
