Comatose Music have added the undisputed kings of Japanese brutal, slamming death metal to their ever more powerful ranks. Please join us in welcoming Gorevent to the Comatose army!
Gorevent have been exploring the realms of the extreme for fifteen years now and have released albums that stand as blood splattered monoliths in the shadowy underworld of brutal death metal. Their debut full length album, released in 2008, Abnormal Exaggeration, has been hailed by Teeth Of The Divine as one of the greatest examples of brutality even recorded, noting in their review...
"... you cannot do death metal any better then the complete slamming, guttural putridity found on Abnormal Exaggeration..."
Gorevent's career to date has taken in demos, EPs, split releases with the likes of Embryonic Depravity, Stillbirth, Crepitation and Splattered and no less than four full length albums, culminating in last year's flesh rending In The Face Of..., - which That's How Kids Die called 'one of their finest releases to date', revelling in the ' bone-crushing heaviness' and 'superior slam-craft'.
But for all that has gone before, this is where the Gorevent story really starts. With the Comatose Music machine at their backs, Gorevent's rise through the worldwide ranks of the depraved and deranged is surely assured. Be prepared for spine shattering slams, stomach churning brutality and death metal simply too heavy to resist...Gorevent are coming for you all with an early 2020 release!

Having quite some history with Finnish bands, Lifeforce Records is proud to announce the signing of another outstanding band from the land of the thousand lakes in the form of Vorna from Tampere. Singing in their native language Vorna combine all the great elements fans love from the bands up north. The band's Lifeforce Records debut is set for a fall 2019 release.
Vorna are a melancholic metal band from Tampere, Finland founded back in 2008. The six-piece band started first as a melodic black/folk metal but later absorbed various influences from symphonic, atmospheric and melodic metal - now delivering a dark and majestic performance sung in the beautiful Finnish language.
After publishing a few unofficial demos, Vorna finally released their debut full-length album “Ajastaika” in 2013 which received lots of positive feedback and reactions both from the Finnish and international media. In 2014, the band started active touring and played several shows in Finland making their first impressions in live environment.
One year later, the biggest Finnish metal media outlet Kaaoszine ranked Vorna as one of most promising, upcoming rock/metal bands from Finland. The year of 2015 would also stand for their busiest year so far as their signature beer “Taival” was launched in the Finnish markets in autumn, followed by a European tour through Finland, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden culminating to the release of their highly acclaimed second full-length album “Ei Valo Minua Seuraa” in December.
“Ei Valo Minua Seuraa” received astonishing reviews, praises and honorary mentions both among the fans and media. This album made absolutely clear that Vorna had now become a well-known act in the underground metal scene and it opened many doors for the future: in January 2016 Vorna were signed to Nem Agency, one of the biggest independent booking agencies and live promoters in Finland, and half a year later played their first festival appearance at SaariHelvetti together with such acts as Shining (Swe), Turmion Kätilöt and many more.
In Autumn 2016 Vorna recorded two to-be-self-released singles: “Aalloista” which was released in September and was followed by a Finnish tour with Whispered, and “Tie Varjoista” in January 2017 which was then followed by another Finnish tour with Thyrfing and Kalmah aside with Vorna’s appearance at JKL Metal Festival in Jyväskylä. After playing numerous club shows in spring 2017, Vorna were invited to one of the biggest Finnish summer metal festivals, Nummirock, accompanying such acts as Rhapsody, DevilDriver, Raised Fist, Wintersun, Insomnium and many more. Only a few months later Vorna left for a touring break in order to focus on their upcoming third full-length album.
In 2019 Vorna are coming back with full force. Now with over 10 years of experience under their belt and still going strong with the original line-up, the six-piece are bringing their anticipated and carefully crafted third full-length album which will be released in autumn 2019 through their new label Lifeforce Records. The forthcoming album is the most refined and most ambitious Vorna release to date which will redefine the Finnish melancholic metal music for years to come.

Eternal Breath was founded in 1996 by Andy & Marino in Wielsbeke, Belgium with an aim to combine traditional and new styles of metal in one sound. During that initial time, 3 demo albums were made and after many line-up changes, a consistent line-up took form in 2015. The year after that, the bands first full cd, The Joker, was released. It featured a change in sound from the earlier demo albums, bringing a new mix of epic heavy metal and modern fast thrash metal, inspired by the likes of Judas Priest and Exodus. The album was praised for its melodic vibes, powerful vocals and philosophical lyrics. To mark the album, a release of the aptly named beer “The Joker” (8,5%, wheat beer with coriander flavouring) soon followed.
Aside from numerous shows in Belgium, the album helped bring Eternal Breath to the UK for several festivals & gigs and had the band join The Three Tremors as a support for their European tour featuring Tim “Ripper” Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth, etc).
2019 will see the release (via Sliptrick Records) of Eternal Breath’s second full-length album, World Of Chaos, and will contain a total of 11 brand new songs! The album was recorded in Shellshock Studio (Knokke, Belgium) & mastered by Attie Bauw who took care of the mastering of albums such as Painkiller from Judas Priest.

Japanese metal group Survive began life over 20 years and have forged their own indelible path within the jmetal scene. It was back in 1998, when former Death File guitarist and mastermind Nemo decided to form a thrash metal band of his own which soon became the juggernaut known as Survive. It didn’t take long for the band to create their first demo tape and their promise was backed-up in a big way when the group embarked on a tour with legendary Japanese thrash-metallers United (whose guitarist Singo Otani also produced the demo). Soon after, Survive were ready to release their debut album Against Next, which allowed the band to tour Japan extensively and gain domestic recognition.
Over the next two decades the band released 5 albums and toured with metal giants such as Napalm Death, At The Gates, Kreator, Overkill and Venom, cementing their place in Japanese metal history. Still going strong, Survive‘s latest album Immortal Warriors was released to the Japanese market in late 2018 and now the album will be released worldwide via Sliptrick Records in 2019. Survive have lost none of their verve and Immortal Warriors is an absolute must for fans of this fantastic, often overlooked band.
