02. Scourge Of The Iron Beast
03. Perpetual Glorification Of The Eternal Symbols
04. The Deification Of Your Extinction (Demo Version)


Format : CD, Vinyl, Digital (Helter Skelter Productions)


''HELTER SKELTER PRODUCTIONS (distributed & marketed by REGAIN RECORDS) is proud to present a special new EP from HATE MANIFESTO, Herald of Triumph, on CD, 10" vinyl, and cassette tape formats.

One of Greece's best-kept secrets, HATE MANIFESTO formed in 2003 but, so far, have an extremely sparse discography. However, what they lack in quantity, they more than double-up on in quality. To Those Who Glorified Death, their debut album from 2017 - which HELTER SKELTER rereleased on a worldwide scale in early 2018 - displayed the shockingly extreme force with which HATE MANIFESTO could create their whirlwind of martial black/death. But with the aptly titled Herald of Triumph do they fully display the armament of their potential. Comprising four fierce 'n' fiery tracks in a swift 'n' decisive 17 minutes, Herald of Triumph is full-on shock & awe - CRUSH, KILL, DESTROY - with HATE MANIFESTO's chosen weapons being the iron-fisted surge of black metal and the muscular swarm of death metal, all rendered in rich, devastating tones. Simultaneously classic and modern, Herald of Triumph is the sign of your end!''

Format : CD (Satanath Records)


''Co-release Satanath Records with More Hate Productions: new album "VII: The Chariot" of Greek black metal band Order Of The Ebon Hand is out on June 27th, 2019!

Order Of The Ebon Hand were formed in August of 1994. Their purpose from the beginning was, and is, to play archetypal Black Metal. They have released 2 albums: "A Mystic Path to the Netherworld" 1997 by Hypervorea Records and "XV: The Devil" 2005 by Season of Mist. Apart from their debut, each album will represent a tarot card seen through a Black Metal spectrum. The band has completed its new album "VII: The Chariot", mixed and mastered by Victor Santura (Triptykon) from Woodshed Studios. The band has also contributed to numerous compilations, the most notable being "Order of the Tyrants" honouring the emblematic Celtic Frost. They have played live with numerous bands, some of the most notable names being: Slayer, Rotting Christ, Candlemass, Accept, Therion, Αbbath, Nightfall, Dismember, Wolves in the Throne Room, Negura Bunget.

"VII: The Chariot" is the second card drawn out of ORDER OF THE EBON HAND's Unholy Deck, following up the first card drawn, which was, appropriately for a Black Metal band, "ΧV: The Devil", a card most ideal to swear allegiance. The band's commitment is that each and every following album, will delve in one occult tarot card, seen from a Black Metal perspective. "The Chariot" is the card connecting Mars to Saturn, War and Fate. Appropriately, the album is a rash, remorseless, and warlike creation of archetypal Black Metal, pacing on the principles that define all pure Metal. The fights between identity and death, freedom and oblivion, surround the entirety of the album. Conquest is synonymous to mobilization whether be it mere steps or a full headlong charge to the complete unknown. The faces of war appear, whether it be at sea, land, or air, and the CHARIOT changes shapes. It undergoes metamorphosis from destroyer ships, to nightmare steeds, aerial fighters, armoured demons, heavy cavalry knights, elite infantry, ancient heroes, and demon kings, all bound to a merciless race, in which, after the starting gun - there is no turning back. But the enemy is unclear. For moments it is the obvious. Then it mutates - it simultaneously becomes imprisonment, insomnia, a wish for self-destruction, restlessness, duty, addiction, defeat, then death personified - ultimately the inevitable fate that haunts the mundane. "The Chariot" then becomes the means to exceed the Chariot Itself. The vehicle, whether it be weapon or body, is merely an instrument and not the Self. The conquest itself, becomes a trial of realization, its purpose to destroy all the illusions of life that would prove oblivious at the Ultimate Hour! Eight songs, more than 40 minutes of devastating madness, will not make anyone doubt it, and the guest vocals by Sakis Tolis from Rotting Christ on "Sabnock" will definitely add confidence!

Format : Vinyl (Nuclear War Now! Productions)


''Nuclear War Now! is proud to announce its newfound alliance with Αιμα (Aima) in releasing the band’s debut album, “τράγος” (“Tragos”). Although it was established in Athens, Greece in 2011, Aima has to this point not garnered a level of attention that is commensurate with the quality of its music. This is almost certainly due to the fact that its recorded output to date has been somewhat sparse, and that it has opted not to play live shows. Additionally, its members have been simultaneously involved in other cults of similarly irreverent purposes, such as Wargoat and Goat Synagogue, whose endeavors have also occupied their attention. With the release of “Tragos” (“Goat”), however, Aima is poised to make its formidable presence known on a much wider scale. The Greek moniker Αιμα, or “blood,” appropriately distills the band’s essence into the basic element of life and death. Similarly, and in a practice continued with this album, each of Aima’s previous solo releases, including its 2012 self-titled demo and ensuing 7” EP from 2014, “σάρκα” (“flesh”), has been branded unassumingly, allowing instead for the recording itself to deliver its potent message in greater splendor. Since the beginning, and continuing through the aforementioned releases and the more recent 2017 split with Supremative, the goal has been to continue the tradition of black metal first espoused by pioneers like Sarcófago, Beherit, and Blasphemy. Like these bands, Aima has infused a healthy dose of death metal influence into its craft, resulting in a sound that is not unlike that of its fellow Greek contemporaries and long-time NWN! stalwarts, Embrace of Thorns. This parallel is also exemplified by the fact that the “σάρκα” EP was released on Archfiend Devilpig’s own Kill Yourself Productions, which serves as a testament to their mutual admiration. By Aima’s own admission, “Tragos” accentuates the death metal element even more so than previous releases. This shift was not made by conscious decision, but instead represents a natural progression in the band’s style. All eight tracks on the album were written in 2017 and 2018, subsequent to the release of the split with Supremative, which lends the recording a notable cohesion in its devastating, monolithic effect. Finally, credit is due to sound engineer Sotiris Laskaris, who was responsible for the production, mixing, and mastering that perfectly enhances this voluminous recording, a feat even more impressive considering it was captured in the band’s rehearsal room. With “Tragos,” Aima has clearly established itself as a worthy present-day torchbearer in the tradition of the most blasphemous of dark arts.''

Funeral Storm - Arcane Mysteries (Full-length, 2019)


Tracklist :

01. Invocation of the Great Red Dragon

03. Martyr of the Lake
04. Wandering Through the Abyss
05. The Necromancer
06. The Necromancer Part II

10. Flowers of My Youth (Varathron Cover)


Format : Digital, CD (Hells Headbangers Records)


''HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present FUNERAL STORM's highly anticipated debut album, Arcane Mysteries, on CD and vinyl LP format. Featuring members from Hellenic scene legends Varathron, FUNERAL STORM deliver truly ancient - and truly authentic - Greek black metal in the most classic early '90s style, full of mysticism and might.

FUNERAL STORM was formed in 2001 by Wampyrion Markhor Necrowolf under the name Raven Throne as a one-man-project. The name was later changed for legal reasons, and after several changes, the moniker FUNERAL STORM was chosen. Lyrical themes were set early on, and are heavily inspired by occultism, legends, myths, evil, mysteries, horror, and the Cthulhu mythos.

After several lineup changes and one live show, Wampyrion decided to stop any activities concerning the band until 2012, where he released a digital split with Mortuus Sum and a six-way split on tape format with Human Serpent, Thaer Os Valael, Opus Magorum, Silent Dominion, and Varg Order a year later under his label Abyssic Black Cult Records.

FUNERAL STORM were active again with the addition of members of Serpent Path. In 2016, Mercyful Hell Productions released a compilation with songs that cover most of the years of FUNERAL STORM that were never actually released. In the meantime, Wampyrion decided to change the sound of the band, now fully inspired by '90s Greek black metal.

Nick Christogiannis of Deviser and Necroabyssious of Varathron/Katavasia/Zaratus then joined as fulltime members. With this lineup, FUNERAL STORM released a split in early 2017 with Celestial Rite entitled Funeral Rite with Eskarth of AGATUS performing acoustic guitars and a solo on the song "Martyr Of The Lake." Reaping international acclaim, Funeral Rite was released on 12" vinyl and CD formats by Iron Bonehead, while Mercyful Hell released the tape format.

Since signing with HELLS HEADBANGERS, FUNERAL STORM added Arcania (Aherusia) on guitars while Christogiannis depart, and the band promptly set to work on their first full-length record. Ever aptly titled Arcane Mysteries, the album proudly and poignantly delivers 43 minutes of atmospheric tartaric black metal in the vein of the old Hellenic scene, inspired by sorcery, magic, and myths. Indeed, FUNERAL STORM are ancient souls, eschewing the nowadays trends of dissonant non-songwriting and cavernous obfuscation in favor of traditionally epic and dynamic songcraft, reverent to the old Hellenic gods whilst forging terrain all their own, all wrapped in a robust production that powerfully captures the trio's overt physicality - and indeed, THAT classic pulse. Arcane Mysteries is truly a record that brims with a timeless atmosphere - truly, one of arcane mysteries - and safely avoids lazy "throwback status" due to the inclusion of scene veteran Necroabyssious on vocals and the era-authentic, ever-mystical synths, handled by both Wampyrion and Arcania. In short, it's an album more than worthy of the legendary early '90s wave of Greek black metal.

To further underline those classic ties, Arcane Mysteries features two special guests: Eskarth of fellow HELLS HEADBANGERS labelmates AGATUS performed the solo and acoustic guitars on "Martyr of the Lake," and The Magus of Necromantia/Prinicipality Of Hell composed, recorded, mixed, and mastered "Wandering Through The Abyss." Completed by awe-inspiring cover artwork courtesy of Markus Vesper (DENIAL OF GOD, Manilla Road, Attic), FUNERAL STORM triumphantly prove that the past is alive...in fact, more than ever! ''

Format : CD, Vinyl, Cassette (Osmose Productions)


''Hailing from Athens, Greece, Akrotheism formed in 2012 to perform violent-yet-experimental black metal which deeply explores matters of esotericism and philosophy. The band's first recording came in 2013 as a split EP with countrymen Order of the Ebon Hand. Emboldened by that momentum, a year later came the band's debut album, Behold the Son of Plagues, which was a shockingly accomplished work for such a young band. Then, in 2015, Akrotheism delivered two tracks to a split release with countrymen Septuagint, which showed an even bolder and more daring vision of black metal. During this time, the band made select festival appearances once a year, playing alongside such esteemed bands as Ofermod, Necros Christos, Acherontas, and Bölzer among others.

Now, lying in wait to unveil their boldest and most daring work yet, Akrotheism have been studiously crafting their breakout second album, The Law of Seven Deaths, which will be released under the auspices of Osmose Productions. Both a culmination of all thematic and textural exploits to date as well as new corridors yet unexplored, The Law of Seven Deaths is a veritable labyrinth of beyond-the-drape atmosphere and dizzying, dynamic aggression. The album was mixed and mastered by Stephen Lockhart at Emissary Studio, Iceland - known for Svartidaudi, Sinmara, and Rebirth Of Nefast among others - and will feature guest vocals and chants by Acherontas V. Priest. Verily, The Law of Seven Deaths is the work upon which Akrotheism will be duly judged and found triumphant.

A statement from the band reads as thus: "The Law of Seven Deaths came into existence to provoke those who dare to take the inner journey. The one to the uncontrolled liberation of subconscious energies."

''Greek black metal heroes DØDSFERD have been toiling hard in the underground, releasing albums with untainted passion and bold vision. Be it their raw black metal sound that they started off with, or their excursion into DSBM and black/punk styles, they've maintained that all along. On their latest album, they've further refined the sound and take the best elements from everything that they've been known for and much more. The songs are perfectly tempered and resonate with familiar emotions of anguish, hopelessness, and contempt for humanity and its capability for committing despicable acts time and again. This is a dark and fiery album rife with palpable emotions with shades of melancholy and despair. It is a testament to the expressive power this style holds without straying too far from its core sound''

04. Inferno - Zos Vel Thagirion


Format: CD, Digital (World Terror Committee)


''Two Temples conjure, Two Circles conjugate: W.T.C. PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a special split album between INFERNO and DEVATHORN. Titled Zos Vel Thagirion, a newborn spawn arises from the very depths of dementia, materialized upon this plane and beyond.

The Circles of DEVATHORN and INFERNO call upon the maddening rays of Zos Vel Thagirion and the dementia of Sorat, materializing the trance of Drakon into a sonic amalgam of raging, hysterical mystagogy.

Extending to a total length of 33 minutes, the spiritual endeavor of Zos Vel Thagirion features the heinous collaborations of Michael Idehall on the DEVATHORN side and Acherontas V. Priest on the INFERNO side, respectively, while crafted and mastered at Necromorbus Studios and Emissary Studios to become an undisputed aural vessel to the fields above the mundane specters.

Black metal as spiritual development, black metal as spiritual warfare: the intrepid listener shall find both across the vast landscapes of Zos Vel Thagirion, at the skilled hands of INFERNO and DEVATHORN collectively. With artwork penned by the fabled Jose G.A. Sabogal and manipulated by the infamous Mentalporn, this split album is indispensable arsenal in both bands' grand, girded canons.

Zos Vel Thagirion. Zos Vel Sorat. Zos Vel Drakon.

A Typhonian dissolving formula and a clavicula animis to the primordial Qliphothic worlds of Ilan Hizon. Within this blazing Sun-shell of Tagaririm, Man becomes Beast and the Beast becomes Man, forged, unified and embodied to become God and beyond God, to surpass the messianic curse and the karmic cycles alike. A Draconian formula that acts and reacts, the golden scimitar of Iblis drenched into the desert madness of Sutekh, flaying the layers of reality and Self to unearth despicable truths. The topaz emerald of the Boddhisatvas, the pyre of the Seers and the palm of the Prophets, the abode of Daemon and the totemic manifestation of Kténos, where the realization becomes consciousness and all dialectics become a sinister, animalistic Glossolalia. An atavistic, bestial incantation of dispute and revolt, a call upon Ba'al-Phagor to lead the path to inner volcanic realms. The assemblage point of apokténosis to apotheosis, the Sun above all Suns, the Eye of DRAKON.

LEPACA TA'AGIRION!''

''Lucifer's Child originates from Athens, Greece. Its music is a bridge to the world of atmospheric black metal, and a vessel for spiritual self-expression through lyrics. The goal of unifying these two elements gleamed clearly in the eyes of George Emmanuel, a prolific guitarist primarily known for his work as part of Rotting Christ (and a former guitarist of Chaostar), when he formed the band together with bassist Stathis Ridis (a member of another long-running Hellenic metal unit, Nightfall) in 2013. Born from a partnership between two talented musicians, the duo quickly expanded to take in vocalist Marios Dupont (Karma Violens) and drummer Nick Vell (Chaostar), and delivered their debut album, "The Wiccan", in 2015. Encouraged by the album's keen reception, followed by several festival appearences (incl. Inferno Festival, Blastfest and Incineration Festival), LUCIFER'S CHILD returns in a darker, more extreme shade, passionate in outperforming its bold debut.''

Format : CD (Folter Records), Digital (Burial Hordes Bandcamp)


‘’BURIAL HORDES with members from, among others, Dead Congregation, Ravencult and Embrace Of Horns, roughs up the scene with their brutal, uncompromising kind of Black and Death Metal since 2001. Their concept based on unrelenting brutality and darkness mixed with a philosophy of negative energy shows that the Greeks haven't something nice to say lyrically as well. „Brutal“, „merciless“ and „fast“ are a vague description of the nasty Black/Death bastard that BURIAL HORDES play. Their concept of fractious aggression combined with a dark atmosphere is full of negativity and smashes every lucky smile within seconds. The demo CD „Entering The Untrodden Forest“ is already cult and also their last albums “War, Revenge and Total Annihilation” (2005), „Devotion to Unholy Creed“ (2008) and „Incendium“ (2014)“ left a line of destruction.
In 2016, BURIAL HORDES signed with Folter Records and started a new chapter in their existence. The first proof of this collaboration was the „Exctinction“ EP, which received amazing feedback from everyone who is enthusiastic about Black Metal brutality. It hailed lots of kind words and great reviews.
In 2018, finally, it is time to enlarge the darkness over the sunny landscapes of our world in full-length –again embossed by anti commercial, anti scoial, anti religous, satanic, chaotic and misanthropic ideologies. „ΘΑΝΑΤΟΣ ΑΙΩΝΙΟΣ (The Termination Thesis)“ ignites an inferno and merges the hate for this world in a hellish fire – no compromise! ‘’

‘’HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present MEDIEVAL DEMON's long-awaited second album, "Medieval Necromancy," on CD and vinyl LP formats. As one of the true purveyors of the ancient Greek black metal sound - whose 1998 debut album, "Demonolatria", is a highly sought-after classic of grimy mysticism - MEDIEVAL DEMON's return is LONG overdue and further proof that the past is indeed alive.
MEDIEVAL DEMON were formed in Greece in 1993 by brothers Lord Apollyon and Sirokous. Necrochrist and Muerte joined the band and entered the glorious Storm Studio to record their first demo tape, "Night of The Infernal Lords." After releasing some more demos, they recorded their debut album, "Demonolatria", in 1995 and released it on Unisound in 1998.
Satanism, necromancy, the occultist’s practice, the air of darkness and mystery, the meetings in dark forests and forgotten places: all played a significant role in the lives and inspiration of the members. MEDIEVAL DEMON are beyond the mundane - no human civilizations, no modern life, no politics. The only value is chaos eternal, and eternal resistanceagainst God!
Now, MEDIEVAL DEMON have risen from the time and dust of the glorious '90s to unleash spells, prayers, and glorify the gods of the underworld and mighty Lucifer, the ruler of the Earth. They shall do so under the banner of HELLS HEADBANGERS with an aptly titled second album, "Medieval Necromancy": ten hymns to the spirits of the underworld, the glorification of Satanas, and curses against Christianity.
Says drummer/keyboardist Lord Apollyon, "We are honored to release "Medieval Necromancy" through HELLS HEADBANGERS, an original label that is dedicated to the underground for so many years. "Medieval Necromancy" is a creation from the '90s: old-school, Necromantic Spiritual Black Metal from the Abyss."
Indeed, "Medieval Necromancy" is like a time-warp back to the '90s black metal scene, especially Greek's significant role in such. While many usually point to the Scandinavian scene as forerunners of '90s black metal, it is Greece that had a small yet exceptionally potent scene, its sound soon becoming instantly recognizable worldwide, as purveyed by the original "Big Three" of Rotting Christ, Varathron, and Necromantia. MEDIEVAL DEMON arose during this era, and were spurred into action by the spirit of the times. Some 20 years after the release of their cult debut album, their latest "Medieval Necromancy" takes those same original rudiments - proud 'n' patient pulse, witching atmosphere, dusky hues, and no small amount of muscle - and brings them forward into the present, giving a much more rounded 'n' robust production than that found on the no-less-considerable "Demonolatria". It's a sound that's as fresh as it is classic, mysterious as it is majestic, unremittingly obsidian as it is immediately invigorating.
Some spirits lay dormant, wordlessly biding their time to finally awaken from their slumber. MEDIEVAL DEMON have arisen from theirs, and the time for eternal haunting is now. Step into the past to partake in an especially evil present with "Medieval Necromancy"! ‘’

Embrace Of Thorns - Scorn Aesthetics (Full-length, 2018)


Tracklist :

01. The Wanderer and His Shadow
02. Mutter aller Leiden
03. Reducto ad Absurdum
04. Stoking the Fire of Resentment
05. Scorn Aesthetics
06. In Our Image, After Our Likeness
07. Wolf Uncaged - Prometheus Unbound


Format : CD, Vinyl, Digital (Iron Bonehead Productions)


‘’IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present EMBRACE OF THORNS' highly anticipated fifth album, Scorn Aesthetics, on CD and vinyl LP format.
For nearly 20 years now, EMBRACE OF THORNS have built a prolific-yet-patient catalog that defies easy categorization. Deeply rooted in ancient black metal and death metal to be sure, these Greek iconoclasts' sound nevertheless has often been "too black metal" for most death metallers and "too death metal" for most black metallers - likewise, they preempted the bestial metal by at least four years, and later on solidified songwriting finesse far "too clean" for most bestial worshipers - and sadly, wider acclaim in the underground has eluded them. For those KNOW, though, the name EMBRACE OF THORNS has come to mean a gold standard in black/death METAL, and while "acclaim" has never been in their lexicon, longtime supporters IRON BONEHEAD welcomes the band with the riveting Scorn Aesthetics.
Whereas earlier EMBRACE OF THORNS recordings - particularly their cult earliest albums, 2007's ...for I See Death in Their Eyes... and 2009's classic Atonement Ritual - melded the swarming, gibbering chaos of bestial black metal with the molten muscle of the most sepulchral death metal, with 2014's largely overlooked Darkness Impenetrable did the band cross a Rubicon, of sorts, into more streamlined and martial territory. It's a move that might've alienated the more underground-dwelling of EMBRACE OF THORNS' potential fanbase, but one that made their name ever more unique, and they continue that upward/onward trajectory with Scorn Aesthetics.
Encased in their most powerful and punishing production to date, which amplifies the band's growing clarity without sacrificing an ounce of grit, Scorn Aesthetics sees EMBRACE OF THORNS firing on all cylinders...and then crushing them underfoot. Across the album's generous-yet-concise 43 minutes, each of these seven tracks builds with patience and poise, but somehow elusively convey a sense of explosion, detonation, immolation. The effect is one of vortextural churn 'n' spun, slipstreaming the listener into a roiling, ceaselessly humid mass but offering no hope nor reprieve. More generally, Scorn Aesthetics is built upon walls of RIFFS - be they "death metal," "black metal," or just pure METAL - all coalescing into an occult fury, immediately engaging every step of the way and memorable to the very end. Iron-willed and resolute, EMBRACE OF THORNS challenge convention and stagnation with Scorn Aesthetics. Prepare to be flattened, or step aside like a coward.’’
