It’s interesting how death metal can reinvent itself to sound refreshing all over again. And more so, when experienced band members get around to doing that. So here’s another death metal band signing that’s been a long time coming, but that’s to ensure that the music is presented in the best way possible. The music will be revealed in due time but you can have a look at the artwork that’s created by Juanjo Castellano (Interment, Revel In Flesh, Coffins), with the logo made by none other than Mark Riddick (Fetid Zombie).
Label owner Kunal Choksi states, “I’m thrilled to work with a very promising new band in Goregӓng which have members of Venom Inc., Ribspreader, Soilwork, The Absence, etc. More importantly, their style of music is what most appealed to me – it’s reminiscent of early Wombbath and Baphomet, in that it’s catchy, grimy and filthy with a punk edge to it. It’s great to work with bands that strive to break the mould and do something that retains the essence of the genre at the same time.”
Goregӓng member Taylor Nordberg comments, “We are incredibly excited about working with Kunal and Transcending Obscurity! We are all big fans of what he has built and the quality bands/products he has released. We can’t wait to unleash this album to you all! “We are the most foul. We are Goregäng.””

Transcending Obscurity Records is proud to welcome the ambitious death metal band of Ralf Hauber (Revel In Flesh) and Jonny Pettersson (Wombbath, Henry Kane, Ursinne) called Heads for the Dead to its family. Expect crushing old school death metal inspired by horror movies and having a great sound and atmosphere to boot. They join the roster having death metal bands such as Paganizer, Down Among The Dead Men, Ursinne, Feral, De Profundis, Echelon, Rogga Johansson, Come Back From The Dead and many more.
The debut full length ‘Serpents Curse’ will soon be scheduled for release this year on multiple formats. The title track will be revealed via the 2018 label sampler next week.
Death metal juggernaut Down Among The Dead Men have assembled a new album that’s filthier and crustier than ever before. Sounding massive, Rogga Johansson has created his best music for the band yet, with Dave Ingram being in absolute top form throughout. Both members have put out highly successful albums in Paganizer and Ursinne respectively this year, not to mention the sensational Echelon release where they joined forces again.
After Echelon, Dave Ingram who is top form, is now working with Jonny Pettersson of Wombbath, Henry Kane, etc. This new band sees two legends get together to play crushing death metal with all the old elements intact. With the recent release of Echelon this month, Henry Kane‘s death/crust album is scheduled to come out next and it will be followed by Ursinne‘s debut full length titled ‘Swim with the Leviathan’. The artwork for the album can be viewed below.
Album track list –

4. The Chimes of Midnight
7. Bullet Bitten
8. Something Wicked This Way Comes
9. Turning Japanese
10. Monsters in the Parasol
Transcending Obscurity Records owner Kunal Choksi states, “Having worked with Jonny for his death/crust band Henry Kane (due early 2017), it’s incredibly fortuitous to get a chance to work with his newly formed supergroup Ursinne which has the mighty Dave Ingram on vocals. Both of them are apparently in top form at this point of time in their respective careers, and when you think of a death metal album with members of Hail of Bullets, Wombbath, ex-Bolt Thrower, ex-Benediction, Echelon, etc. involved it sounds promising and after listening to the whole album, I’m glad to report that it is indeed kicks serious ass. Ursinne‘s album will be released right after the Henry Kane album and one of the songs off that release can be heard in the 2016 Transcending Obscurity label sampler. Watch for this beast.”
Jonny Pettersson adds, “After our work with Kunal through Echelon and Henry Kane, it was pretty clear that Transcending Obscurity Records was the right label for us. It is providing the support needed to give our brand of death metal the right platform to grow on.”
