Bangladeshi death metal power trio Nekrohowl unleashed their debut EP "Epitome of Morbid" at their EP launching gig. Offering an hour long set-list, the band has announced their final gig of the year 2017.
Decibel Magazine exclusively Streamed the entire EP along with an interview, which can be found at this location.
“On their debut EP, Epitome of Morbid, Nekrohowl unleash four songs (plus an intro) of filthy death metal rife with technical riffs, pounding rhythm section and cavernous vocals” —Decibel Magazine.
The Band Comments: "The whole EP is written based on the concept of personifying 'death' as a supreme entity with sheer omnipotence and ominous rage against all mortals. It is believed that death is inevitable, divine and the only truth to be embraced."
Originally started as a death metal quartet in the crypt of Dhaka, Bangladesh, Nekrohowl was formed a year ago by the members of acclaimed local acts like Abominable Carnivore, Dissector, Enmachined and Homicide. A death evoking, rotten sounding rehearsal demo was soon manifested, which was followed by an oversea live annihilation on the other side of the Bengal — Kolkata, India. With the vilest form of sound and high-powered live performances, they have marked their place as a formidable force in the realm of South Asian extreme metal music.
Earlier in the year, the band encountered with line-up issues, when the vocalist and drummer had to left the band, but that did not stop Nekrohowl from blazing fiercely; Warmonger (Warhound, Ex: Orator) as a replacement in the position of drum-hammering and Obliterator taking over the charge of vocal duty turned them as a power trio, and this incident marks a significant step forward for the band. Climbing to the peak of their powers with this monstrous line-up, the bestial trio embarked on a mini-tour, named as “Agonize and Excruciate Tour 2017”, to support Japanese death metal maestro Desecravity at their Dhaka, Kolkata and Shilong live dates.
Debut EP “Epitome of Morbid” is undeniably the most anticipating metal release of 2017 from the country. With 05 tracks (including an intro), clocking in at around 20 minutes, the EP incorporates the captivating intricacy of Suffocation, sheer gruesomeness of Autopsy, belligerent tone of Immolation, vitriolic intensity of Morbid Angel, demon invoking power of Hellhammer, and malefic darkness of Dead Congregation. The song structures clearly demonstrate the members’ sole object of the exercise, and it is nothing but to play the hard-hearted form of death metal music. Whereas many contemporary old school rooted extreme metal bands from the subcontinent fail to sustain the primitive atmosphere because of the production, Nekrohowl has cautiously maintained that dark, rotten vibe of old school death metal within these tracks.
Limited number of copies of the EP were released locally in digipak format, which will be followed by cassette issue from Malaysian label Diabolicurst Productions, and cd, cassette and vinyl release from American label Slaugherhouse Records. An EP launching gig took place in Dhaka during the local digipak release date on 30th September, 2017.
Portuguese war-horde Satanize stream the entirety of their forthcoming Death Mass Execution EP at heavily trafficked web-portal CVLTNation.com. Now set for international release on August 7th via Larval Productions on 7" vinyl format, stream Satanize's Death Mass Execution in its entirety exclusively HERE.
A special EP comprising three exclusive tracks, Death Mass Execution is a quick 'n' concise attack capping more than a decade of Satanize terrorizing the underground. Hailing from the fertile Portuguese black metal scene, Satanize forego their scene's usual withering rawness for a righteously barbaric assault on the senses. Pounding and pulsing, overwhelming its gibbering intensity, Death Mass Execution ably approximates its title: sonic slaughter abounds at every chaotic, careening turn. And yet, for however jagged their bestial blackgrind may be, Satanize wield their physicality with an almost martial strictness - and escape is never an option, only submission. Completed by a noise intro by Erratix (Rick Smith of Caveman Cult / Torche and David Smith of Shitstorm / Mehkago NT) and cover artwork by Sickness666, Death Mass Execution is sure to satisfy maniacs of Black Witchery, Conqueror, Morbosidad, and especially old Spear of Longinus and Impiety.

Chilean black metallers Praecognitvm are streaming the entirety of their debut demo, Inalienable Catharsis, at Decibel magazine's website. on cassette tape. Set for international release today on cassette tape via Iron Bonehead Productions, stream Praecognitvm's Inalienable Catharsis in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Self-released digitally last year, Inalienable Catharsis so impressed Iron Bonehead with its stout 'n' surging night-sky majesty that the label simply had to release it worldwide on physical tape format. Although Praecognitvm hail from the violent black/death hotbed of Chile, theirs is a sound rooted in classic black metal mysticism, emitting boundless atmosphere whilst remaining tangibly physical, albeit in a more spectral manner. And at four songs in 27 minutes, Inalienable Catharsis is structured in such a manner to weave its magic subtly and patiently, taking deeper root as the record plays on. Indeed, between the band's songwriting and the robust recording they receive here, Inalienable Catharsis is a true record and not merely a "demo" - and it's only the beginning for the duo.

Irish black metal upstarts Naddred are streaming the entirety of their debut demo, Sluagh, at Decibel magazine's website. Set for international release on February 13th via Invictus Productions, stream Naddred's Sluagh in its entirety exclusively HERE.
A brand-new entity featuring members of Slidhr and Eternal Helcaraxe and former members of Sol Axis, Naddred are truly a summation of their combined experience in the black metal trenches. Across the four tracks comprising Sluagh, the quartet whip forth a fury of gnarly-yet-nuanced black metal, ably balancing beyond-the-shade atmosphere with palpably physical force. As an opening statement, it bespeaks an already firm confidence as well as underlining the still-growing power of Irish black metal: the torch has been lit with Sluagh, and Naddred are carrying it. Witness all the sparks exclusively HERE, courtesy of Decibel, North America's only monthly metal magazine.
Hot off the heels of their critically acclaimed debut demo, Englaryk, Iceland's Endalok strike again - and quickly - with their debut mini-album, Úr Draumheimi Viðurstyggðar, set for international release on January 20th via Signal Rex. And today, heavily trafficked web-portal InvisibleOranges.com streams the mini-album in its entirety exclusively HERE.
While they still may bear some of the same immersive traits as their established countrymen, Endalok here present a bold assertion of their own, unique identity. Across its 24-minute runtime, the five tracks that comprise Úr Draumheimi Viðurstyggðar explode with a weirder, wilder, and more winding distillation of everything that made Englaryk so immediately engrossing - and entrancing. Within its soundworld, Endalok dwell within a ritualistic sort of womb that hauntingly gestates, pulsing with a distant-yet-overwhelming cadence that subtly shape-shifts. It's a similarly shadowy dance as Englaryk - that sense of slow-motion vertigo, as different beyond-the-shade textures come into focus, only to wither away again - but given grim, hideous purpose as the band's confidence in their vision grows. Still young, Endalok are weaving sorcery like masters on Úr Draumheimi Viðurstyggðar. As a bonus on the vinyl edition, the B-side will feature the entire Englaryk demo.
In the meantime, stream all of Úr Draumheimi Viðurstyggðar exclusively HERE, courtesy of InvisibleOranges.com.
