MIDNIGHT - No Mercy For Mayhem (DOUBLE CD)


Hotter than Hell in the metal/punk underworld, MIDNIGHT's debut album, Satanic Royalty, became an instant classic upon its release in 2011. Now, with anticipation at a fever pitch, the hooded demons return with the even better No Mercy for Mayhem. Whereas Satanic Royalty was the culmination of nearly a decade's worth of hard slogging in the underground, No Mercy for Mayhem is an intensification of everything its predecessor seemingly perfected: the hooks even more anthemic, the power more piledriving, the dirt dirtier, the sum effect being absolute BLACKOUT. Really, there's no current band who are able to mainline classic heavy metal, hard-charging punk rock, and grimy rock 'n' roll quite like MIDNIGHT can, and No Mercy for Mayhem is studded-leather, 10-track proof that mainman Athenar and crew are at the top of their game and bow to no one. As an added bonus, initial CD pressings of No Mercy for Mayhem will include a bonus track and a whole bonus disc comprising MIDNIGHT's super-limited Alive on the Streets of Cleveland live LP. On your feet or on your knees, you'll get No Mercy for Mayhem from MIDNIGHT!



INQUISITION - Invoking The Majestic Throne Of Satan (DIGIPAK TOME CD)


OUT NOW ON HELLS HEADBANGERS: Limited edition deluxe custom diecut trifold packaging with silver foil and parchment pages. The Cassette edition and deluxe LP will be out in September 2014. T-Shirts in stock below.

At long last, INQUISITION's Invoking the Majestic Throne of Satan receives proper vinyl & CD editions, in deluxe tome packaging, courtesy of longtime supporters HELLS HEADBANGERS. Originally released in 2002 and long out of print, Invoking the Majestic Throne of Satan is the moment where INQUISITION truly came into their own and cemented a sound uniquely and entirely theirs: bulldozing, hypnotic, ritualistic, and thoroughly occult, an expansive 'n' absorbing BLACK HOLE that's an awesome power to behold, drone-oblivion chunder stretching to infinity and beyond, and all with the simplest, most stripped-down rudiments of guitar, drums, and voice. Here, INQUISITION both defined and REdefined black metal; the ideology and esoterica of true Satanism imbues everything the duo do across this monolithic, minimal-is-maximal work and yet personalized in such a manner that bespeaks absolute devotion to the darkside. And although the black metal scene at the time of the album's release was far sparser and far less public, the legendary around Invoking the Majestic Throne of Satan continued to grow, to the point where the album's now rightfully considered a classic, and it served as the springboard by which INQUISITION began to dominate the modern underground scene. So, hear the album the way it was intended to be experienced, as a portal to the Other Side, and try returning from the trip unchanged.

And who better to commence proceedings than a man who needs no introduction but will be given one anyway. It's the seemingly bottomless pit of musical knowledge that is Darkthrone's Fenriz, with his very own selection of influential tracks from the darker side of the metal universe, who first takes centre stage.

The podcasts will be available at:

Busy out cruising the post-apocalyptic wasteland, Italian speed metalpunks CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY are back with their highly anticipated second album, Future Decay. Four long years after their cult-classic It's Time to Face the Doomsday debut, the shit-hot CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY here crank up everything that made that record so special to so many listeners worldwide: more metal, more punk, more darkness, more fun, more crushing production, more crazed performances, more of MORE. Literally, everything on Future Decay is turned up to "11," and then beyond! It's often been said that CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY are the metalpunk analogue of the Mad Max films. With Future Decay, however, they mainline into musical form every cult '80s movie to feature bikers, zombies, and zombie bikers and set them across a bleak, bombed-out landscape that's their own choosing rather than one that's already been created. And with it, CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY paint a portrait of Future Decay...

VULCANO, historically pioneered in darker style of Extreme Metal in South America since the early 80s, has a new album! The time has not weakened this creative powerhouse of fast
riffs and distorted and they remain talking louder without showing any sign of fatigue. Just over a year has passed since their last great album of2013 - "The Man, The Key, The Beast" and VULCANO brings us now WHOLLY WICKED an album so well finished, unique, honest and bright that it could only be the result of who still holds the hands that chemistry truly essential to any band
governed by the same ideal and purpose when it started 33 years ago. WHOLLY WICKED is a worthy successor to the album "The Man, The Key, The Beast" not only for its melodic construction,
but mainly differentiated by the disparate sound and musical approach. The album surfing sovereignty by the turbulent seas of Death / Black Metal rancid and ominous, coupled with a visceral
Thrash Metal, with property naked of polished and boring riffs, but worthy of honors domain. Without showing any highlight individualized, one sees a renewed VULCANO, but with its
roots in the true purpose that these veterans remains trapped in themselves. Privilege of the few, by well say... Wholly WICKED is an album really necessary for all Headbangers, is a lesson in rude compositions impossible to be heard only once, when the album has come to an end in just its intense 32 minutes, impulsively you'll return to the beginning.
