“Eadem Errata” is full of riff based heaviness that doesn’t leave you disappointed! Antti Maunula, Juha Ilola, Jani Redkin, Arttu Korpela and Samuli Maunula have outdone themselves again by creating beautiful music that will make you bang your head in the wall and leave you weeping in tears. With the warm guidance of Ville Palin “Eadem Errata” got its final shape; 40 minutes of pure hatred and joy.

Finnish rock metallers Zarthas has signed a worldwide deal with WormHoleDeath for the release of their third album "Reflections".
The band stated:
"Scouting for labels started already before the recordings, and WormHoleDeath was one of the first labels we sent our promotion to. In time, WormHoleDeath was also recommended by European promotion agencies, and we got convinced that we are now dealing with a label that is not only independent, down to earth, and artist-friendly, but has also grown to be quite a big player in the fields of international music business. As negotiations went on, pieces started to fall in place pretty quickly. We honestly believe that this is the beginning of solid co-operation, that suites the interests of both parties.
Zarthas has received lot of feedback that we need to get our music to European markets, so clearly WormHoleDeath became our number one target as a label to co-operate with. "Reflections" was not an easy album to record. Our studio gear started to fall apart piece by piece right from the beginning. All and all recording and mixing process went on one step forward and two steps back because of that. So after bunch of misfortune, we were extremely happy to hear that WormHoleDeath liked the stuff, and wanted to release it. It feels like all the hard work and countless hours are finally paying off, and that feels really good. Whole band is very excited and happy for this opportunity."
Iron Bonehead Productions have set August 4th as the international release date for Blooming Carrions' debut demo, Sparkling Rotten Dreams, on cassette tape format. Hailing from Finland, Blooming Carrions were formed in 2014 by EvM, with the aim to create dark and twisted death metal. And indeed, that's exactly the band does on the aptly titled Sparkling Rotten Dreams. Its mildew and rot can be felt upon first whiff, and its stench twists and malforms the further the demo goes on. In fact, the twisted 'n' idiosyncratic cover art perfectly encapsulates this first exposure to Blooming Carrions: lysergic and laconic one moment, bestial and bilious another, all wrapped together in a sort of illogical logic, bleeding fever dreams into the listener's psyche. As a first recording, Sparkling Rotten Dreams is both stand-alone statement and suggestion of further fathomless depths to come. Three decaying hymns of etheric visions about death and destruction: this is Blooming Carrions' Sparkling Rotten Dreams. Hear its opening track, "Crystalized Disembowelment," at Iron Bonehead's Soundcloud HERE.
