"Wriggling Chrysalis Of Metaphysical Grudge" is chock full of penetrating, pit-raging tunes, going off like a bomb from the start, setting the tone for the entire album. Containing plenty of what makes Brutal Death Metal "brutal", whether it is the slamming grooves or the blasting mayhem, its also is fast, catchy, and technical, and never boring, making this a stand out brutal death metal album that appeals to a wide audience.
Japanese newcomers Urobilinemua have more than earned their way to the Gore House Productions camp. In under 2 years, this technical yet brutal quintet has not only released a split, but also self-released and distributed their first EP in the vast Japanese metal market.
Featuring album art by the grotesque loving painter Mei Maro, "Wriggling Chrysalis Of Metaphysical Grudge" was recorded / mixed at Urobilinemia's home studio, and received a revamp mastering touch by Chris Garcia of The Morgue Music Studios (Stages of Decomposition, Bloodscribe, Cranial Engorgement) in Inglewood, CA.
PRC Music is very happy to announce the addition of the Ukrainian kill machine Ambivalence to its roster of bands!

Grace Disgraced are arguably like Gruesome, they're indulging in death worship for years but they're also evolving rapidly. They seem to be taking the 'symbolic' era template and elaborating on it, adding their own touches to it. No Clean Singing managed to premiere the entire stream of the album HERE.
"In a year when Gruesome is getting widespread accolades for keeping the legacy of Death alive, Grace Disgraced need to be in that conversation, too. They’ve recorded one of the best progressive death metal albums of the year, though you could say with equal justification that it’s also one of the best technical death metal albums of the year and one of the best brutal death albums, too."
- No Clean Singing (US)
"Very special and magnificent album" - Vixens (Netherlands)
"A cult among fans of techno-death metal" - Astarta (Russia)
Grace Disgraced are an ambitious, ever-evolving band from Russia. Rooted in the classic sound of Death, they've been rather overlooked all along, struggling to find labels with proper distribution networks. That hasn't stopped them from going all out when it comes to presenting their music - the songs on 'Lasting Afterdeaths' are nothing short of mini-epics, with the average song length being around 7-8 minutes; moreover, each song has an individual artwork to thoroughly convey the mood and expression of the song. Mind-boggling progression and challenging technicality aside, the raw vocals of Polina add necessary brutality to the proceedings, bolstering the ever-sinuous and rhythmic nature of their music.
Chuck Schuldiner would've been proud of their direction, for they don't wallow in the sound created by Death on their first two albums, but lean towards the experimental yet catchy style on their penultimate release, 'Symbolic'. Only a few bands have successfully taken the sound ahead, one being the underrated Cemetery (R.I.P.) from Germany (reissued on Memento Mori label) and the other being Grace Disgraced.

After the success of Stages, Imminence Records has once again hit the Florida metalcore pipeline to sign technical metalcore outfit Forthteller after their very successful "Madmen" independent EP release. While they are already hard at work writing new songs, the band has just been added to Stages’ New War tour that will be hitting the the road in late July.
“We are very excited to be joining the Imminence Records team. This opportunity is something we have been working toward for a long time, and it is amazing to see all the hard work, the immense support we have received, and the opportunities every industry professional has given us finally come to fruition. We want to offer a special thanks to the dudes in Stages for letting us hit the road with them in July and August! Thank you to everyone for believing in us and making this possible. We will never forget that support!” - Thom Schultz (Drummer)
Forthteller is a rising local band out of Tampa, FL that began in 2014 under the name I Shot the Albatross. Due to an evolution in sound from their first EP to their second one, which was released on May 21st, 2016, the band decided that a name change was in order. The band strives to push the boundaries in metalcore with unique riffs, progressive composition, and a myriad of changes in time signatures. Blending a diverse range of sounds, Forthteller is not your average metalcore outfit. Their emotional and dramatic showmanship, with visually striking intensity, lends the bands’ live performance to be endlessly captivating. In late June, the band signed with Imminence Records and announced their first tour.

Long-running brutal death metal unit, Internal Suffering, has dropped the punishing fruits of their "Cyclonic Void Of Power" full-length upon the masses. Captured at 16th Cellar Studios in Rome (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour Of Penance, Hideous Divinity, etc.) by Italian death metal mastermind Stefano Morabito (Eyeconoclast, ex-Hour Of Penance), "Cyclonic Void Of Power" spews forth the band's traditionally fast yet chaotic and wildly technical brand of sonic malevolence. A concept album divided into three separate chapters, "Cyclonic Void Of Power" follows the mystical, mythological and magic chaotic universe the band has explored on previous outings into far more complex realms.
In celebration of its release, No Clean Singing is currently hosting a stream of the record in all its malicious divinity noting, "There aren't many bands anywhere who can operate at the absolutely blistering pace of this one, and even fewer who use their skills so expertly to create death metal that's both chaotically ferocious and yet machine-precise. And while the pure head-scrambling adrenaline rush you get from listening to this brutally decimating cyclone of power is reason enough to take the plunge on the new album, Internal Suffering also manage to generate an atmosphere of inhuman horror that blankets their sonic conflagration like a poisonous fog."
Hear Cyclonic Void Of Power RIGHT HERE.
Internal Suffering's "Cyclonic Void Of Power" is out now via Unique Leader in CD, vinyl and digital formats. Order yours at THIS LOCATION.
In a positive investigation of the record, Burning Ambulance places frontman Fabio Marin, "somewhere between Cannibal Corpse's George 'Corpsegrinder' Fisher and Deicide's Glen Benton, his ability to shift between a low gurgling roar and a blast-furnace like exhale-bellow particularly indebted to the latter man," further elaborating, "Guitarist Diego Alonso whips up a minor tornado of riffs and high-speed zipping squeals, shifting seamlessly from low-end rumbles to mid-range table-saw sounds as Garcia and drummer Wilson Henao keep the music grounded and drive it forward, respectively."
Dead Rhetoric calls "Cyclonic Void Of Power", "A solid pick-me-up of sonic brutality," while Angry Metal Guy notes, "If you're a fan of no-frills, light-speed brutality, Cyclonic Void Of Power won't disappoint." Gushed Stereogum upon their premiere of "Unleash The Antarctic Colossus," "Cyclonic Void Of Power... runs deeper than the typical blast of brutal death metal... these ten songs plus one cold Lovecraftian ode form a conceptual whole."
Decrepit Birth decided to move to Agonia after the expiry of their previous EU deal with Nuclear Blast Records. The latter will continue its work with the band for North American territory.
On the signing to Agonia & new album, Decrepit Birth commented: "We are very excited to work with Agonia, we feel that it will be a great partnership and give us the exposure we've needed in Europe. The new Decrepit Birth will be the heaviest and best album the band has recorded to date. A huge thank you to Agonia Records, we look forward to working with them in the years ahead!”
Officially formed in 2001, Decrepit Birth released three studio album's to date, which got them a premiere spot on the death metal radar. Their music, infused with technical and progressive twists, managed to forge a very solid international fan base & continues to forge their path into the future as one of the genre’s finest bands.
Decrepit Birth's latest album "Polarity" (2010) was well received by critics and entered the Billboard "Heatseekers Chart" at #18, selling well over a thousand copies in its first week of release in USA. The record was supported by the Summer Slaughter tour, which saw the band play with acts such as Decapitated, The Faceless, All Shall Perish, Veil Of Maya and Animals As Leaders.
More details on the band's 4th album will follow soon.

Spawned in 1996, Internal Suffering relocated from their home base in Pereira, Columbia to Madrid, Spain. Notorious for their apocalyptic brand of brutal, blasting, technically proficient death metal, the band's bestial discography includes four full-lengths: 2000's "Supreme Knowledge Domain" (Repulse Records), 2002's "Chaotic Matrix" (Displeased Records), 2004's "Choronzonic Force Domination" (Displeased Records), and 2006's "Awakening of the Rebel" (Unique Leader Records), the last two of which featured the production of extreme metal sound-wizard Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal/ex-Morbid Angel).
A maniacal work ethic and thirst to spread their audio peril globally has allowed Internal Suffering the opportunity to ransack stages throughout the US, Europe, and Asia along the iconic likes of Cannibal Corpse, Sodom, Incantation, Exodus, and Origin, among many more.
Gorguts are returning with a 33-minute song, which is now exclusively being streamed by the official media partners below. Entitled 'Pleiades' Dust' this complex, image evoking, and masterly arranged eponymous track by Canada's long-running and much loved craftsmen of technical death metal fills an entire EP, which has been scheduled for release on May 13th.

Gorguts mastermind Luc Lemay states:
"We have been looking forward a long time to share this new journey into uncharted musical territory with you. I could hardly be more proud of this ambitious composition. The theme of a long forgotten library makes a story of beauty and fascination. I like to see this work as a tribute to those great minds of an ancient civilisation, their books and history. These three items have long held my own curiosity and interest for many years. I hope you enjoy this."
