“White Devil Armory” track listing:

01. Freedom Rings
02. Where There’s Smoke…
03. Pig

The cover artwork for “White Devil Armory” can be seen below.

Said OVERKILL in a statement: “We are still working on the new record, but this is gonna be worth the wait, with more old-school, face-melting thrash!”

Speaking to Steppin’ Out magazine, OVERKILL vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth stated about the band’s upcoming album: “The new record has a blend of what we’ve done over the past half decade. I’m noticing it’s a more punchy heavy metal record with more dimension than the last record had. Where is it going to end up on the food chain? I really don’t know. But my feeling is it’s an eclectic collection of moments from us. ‘The Electric Age’ came across, to me, as kind of a two-dimensional thrash record. This one is punchy but has a whole different bunch of ways to go and things to hear on it.”

OVERKILL released a very special limited tour edition of “The Electric Age” in Europe on April 19, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records. The limited 2CD tour edition included the regular album as well as a four additional live tracks on a bonus CD, recorded at The Metro in Sidney, Australia on September 25, 2010.

Beast Within - Adversity/Servitude 7"



Although most prominently focusing on an icy atmosphere, there is a fair amount of diversity within the Québécois black metal scene. Although featuring members of familiar bands within the scene such as Akitsa, Thesyre and Utlagr, this is the first time I’ve heard a band from the province focus on a proto-black sound. Even if Beast Within mostly gleans their sound from Celtic Frost, their riffs and songwriting abilities really rubs me in the right way. Although a mere two songs, the Adversity/Servitude 7” makes a big impact.


  1. Adversity
  2. Servitude

DWP news digest.

NIGHTBRINGER "Emanation" CD out / LP coming soon and tour.

NIGHTBRINGER's "Emanation", which gathers 4 otherwise unreleased tracks and 2 exclusive versions of tracks from "Death & the Black Work" (originally released as a split with SERPENTINAM), is now available once again.

The original CD version by Starlight Temple Society is long since sold out and thus it was decided to give it another incarnation, with a new layout. The CD version is available from the band during their European tour (along with other merch).

The LP version is expected to arrive during April. "Emanation" serves for those who would bear witness to the initial incarnation of NIGHTBRINGER and the metamorphosis that would follow!

NEFANDUS "Reality Cleaver" CD / LP.

NEFANDUS is back with a 3rd full-length album! For the first time since mid-90's existing as a full band, they march into the new territories of mid-paced and grim Black Metal. Featuring lyrical contributions of Grim Vindkall (DOMGÅRD, SNAKESKIN ANGELS), J.K. (OFERMOD, MORTUUS) and Vaerulv, as well as vocals of Thomas Sabbathi of GRIFTEGÅRD and YEAR OF THE GOAT.

Let it be known that from this day forth, The entity known as FUNERAL GOAT will no longer exist.
It has changed form and from this moment shall be named IBEX ANGEL ORDER or IAO.

We have decided that because the music and lyrics that have arisen in the last writing sessions differ so much from what FUNERAL GOAT once was intended for, this change was a necessity.

F.G. was started as a tribute to our old favourites VON and BEHERIT. We limited our song writing to fit those bands approach and the lyrics were kept primitive with the same intent. We wrote an entire album following this rigid structure. We are still proud of it for what it is, a monument to ancient black death metal.

However, we feel that limiting our art is not right. All tracks we have written since our "Mass Ov Perversion" album have been completely free of any limitations or pre conceived ideas. These songs just came into existence and wrote themselves. These tracks needed lyrics that were far more personal to us and that showed more depth and thought. Our lyrics now deal with gnostic writings and other occult script_ures.

Brutal Assault announces three newly confirmed bands headed by legendary avantgarde black metal act MANES! Here is the message from the band: „Once again, after 8 years or so, we'll climb onstage and do our thing. Not once, but twice, at Brutal Assault 2014. We'll be doing a more stripped-down semi-accoustic thing on Friday, and crank it all the way to three, maybe max five, at the grand mainstage on Saturday... We've never played outside Norway before, and who knows; maybe we'll never play outside Norway again after this, so this'll most certainly be something special for both you and us!“

Another confirmed bands are LA-based experimental metallers IWRESTLEDABEARONCE and Swedish thrash/death metallers GRAND EXIT.

Never before published studio material of Szczecin (Poland) SILENCE - Last Warrior from 1989. This work was recorded in ARP studio. Next to the above mentioned material, on the CD there will be a couple of reh tracks. The music itself is an excellent Spped Thrash in the vein of early MERCILESS DEATH/EGZEKUTHOR. If you do like MERCILESS DEATH Eternal Condemnation or EGZEKUTHOR Hateful Subconsciousness, this material is for you!




Swedish melodic metal maestros SOILWORK with great new album „The Living Infinite“ are heading to Brutal Assault 2014! Another confirmed bands for today are Japanese CHURCH OF MISERY (doom/psychedelic metal) and Norwegian OKKULTOKRATI (black/sludge/HC/metal).


In the Brazilian state of Bahia, Mystifier developed its Black Metal sound in what would have perfectly fit within the style of what Cogumelo Records was releasing. However, their path led them to a much darker and more sinister journey. WICCA, is that journey's first installment. analogous with bands such as Blasphemy, Beherit, Sarcofago and early Rotting Christ, Mystifyer's WICCA brings forth a barrage of Occult cruelty towards christianity. This reissue was completely restored and remastered and is presented in a deluxe 6-panel digipak with a 16-page booklet. It also includes a bonus DVD featuring two concerts: Nuclear War Now II in Berlin and Live in Salvador.
