Sepulchral Curse have members of the mighty Solothus in their ranks and have a new release titled ‘At the Onset of Extinction’ coming out later this year. Watch out for scintillating black/death metal music in the purest vein.
SwampCult are H.P. Lovecraft influenced doom metal band that blend in elements of genres like death metal, dark metal, even black metal to create a very unique and powerful sound. Their new album titled ‘The Festival’ is on the verge of a release. Watch out.
Norse, an enigma from Australia play a visceral, fiery form of mutated, unpredictable black metal with twisted and industrial affectations. The music is subliminally dissonant, whipping out stinging hooks and atmospheric dirge-laden sections hidden in places where you would least expect them to be. It is intrinsically different, adding multiple surreal layers to your reality, and yet seeming coherent, serving a higher purpose. Norse have concocted an elegant album that is extremely pensive, charged with an electrifying atmosphere, and following a pattern that’s hard to imitate. Every riff is meticulously composed, and more importantly, placed. Every single vibration is deadly. Music that’s supposed to be no longer ‘original’ turns the very genre of black metal inside out. Transcending Obscurity Records slips out this highly overlooked recent game-changer for maximum aural propagation. Slither, twitch, die.

‘Forlorn’ will released some time in mid-2016 on Transcending Obscurity Records. Keep your eyes peeled for this beautiful black metal band that uses progressive elements to create a stunning and mesmerizing expression of music.
Abyssus are a new sensation in the death metal underground, known for their Obituary-esque traits as well as their crust-laden old school death metal leanings. The band successfully reinvigorate the fire lacking in today’s death metal music, by circumventing the modern elements and just going primal both in rage and sound. This release puts together their latest split material with crust grinders Slaktgrav, their infamous EP ‘Summon the Dead’, which was also on the split with Czech death metal grime-peddlers Morbider, as well as their split with death metal warlords Nocturnal Vomit, and finally, their debut EP ‘Monarch to the Kingdom of the Dead’ – all in reverse chronological order, having the latest material first. The energy is barely contained on this single disc, which reverberates with untamed enthusiasm, purest intentions and a sound that hearkens back to the irresistible, untouched-by-fate golden period of death metal.
