THE SARCOPHAGUS (Turkey) Returns with Singles from New Album

Turkey’s one of the earliest black metal band The Sarcophagus was formed by Burak Sümer in 1996. At the beginning of 1997, the band released the first demo “Pagan Storm”, which was followed by an EP “Infernal Hordes of The Ancient Times”. In 2009, Niklas Kvarforth from Shining and Ozan Yıldırım from Raven Woods joined the band and The Sarcophagus signed with Osmose Productions for 7” ep “Hate Cult” and debut album “Towards The Eternal Chaos”. The new style was a little bit away from the earlier melodic black metal materials. Thus, The Sarcophagus had become more aggressive with the participation of Niklas Kvarforth. Both of the releases from Osmose Productions saw the light of very positive responses from the audiences and critics.

A couple of years later, Niklas decided to quit from all his other side projects to focus on Shining. With this decision, Morkbeast from Russian black metal band Todestriebe joined the band as the new vocalist and then after 7 long years, The Sarcophagus recorded a new album called “Beyond This World’s Illusion” in 2016 including 9 tracks to keep spreading the disease!

The track “Reign Of Chaos” is the opening track of the album, enshrouded with the harrowing riffs and endless melodies.

The Band Stated:

Beyond this physical world, behind the curtains of this illusion, there is a timeless and formless darkness rises… And this is The Reign of Chaos

Lunatic Hooker – Embracing The Filth [Grind/Sludge on Black Bow Records]

RELEASE DATE: 17.04.17

The music business can be spirit crushing and soul destroying. Bands that start as groups of friends with a passion for music can end up disillusioned, with the flames of their passion near extinguished. This happened to George, Ross, Tim, Duncan and Rafael in their respective bands – but rather than let those last flickering embers burn out for good, they got together to forge a new entity and reignite the fire. The five friends got back to basics – a rehearsal room, some beer and blasting out the music they loved at insane volume and velocity. Every last ounce of fury and frustration was poured out in a barrage of blast beats. The dam holding back the anger burst and Lunatic Hooker came roaring, screaming, howling into the world.
Through that powerful, cathartic cleansing process, every band member began to reconnect with everything they had loved about extreme music in the first place and the fire quickly became an inferno of creativity and adrenaline. Before they knew it the band were ripping up stages with Magrudergrind, Fit For An Autopsy, Attan, Corrupt Moral Altar, Conjurer and Hang The Bastard, recording a monstrous, twisted cover of the Motörhead classic ‘(We Are) The Road Crew’ for a tribute album – and working on their full length debut.
Now that album is complete and straining at the leash, with the date of release set for April 17th on Black Bow Records. Mastered by Anaal Nathrakh’s Mick Kenney, Embracing The Filth features twelve tracks of punishing, pulverising death/grind, crackling with that irresistible rediscovered electricity. There’s so much more to this album than just that exhilarating rush though. The songs have been immaculately crafted and are overflowing with fantastic, memorable riffs, wicked hooks and searing lead work. From the explosive opener, ‘My God Is Bigger Than Yours’ to the crushing sludge landslide of ‘Sarlac’, Embracing The Filth is a stunning demonstration of just how captivating and accomplished truly extreme music can be. With artwork created by Dan Capp of Winterfylleth, Embracing The Filth is the complete package, the real deal and those flames are burning higher than ever.

Ross – Guitar

Funeral Tears – Funeral Doom From Russia

Initiated from Tomsk, Russia during December, 2007, Funeral Tears is the solo Funeral Doom project of Nikolay Seredov (leader of bands like Стахановцы [Stakhanovite] and Taiga).  Dark melodic music and lyrics convey the inner state of Nikolay at different periods of life, the struggle for spiritual balance, at war with himself for only purpose – to find his own eternal peace.  With two grief-stricken full lengths and a split with Poyezd Rodina, Funeral Tears has made their place in the realm of underground Funeral Doom Metal.

The third full-length of Funeral Tears, “Beyond The Horizon” is filled with the musician’s thoughts about people – that we are who we are, with our doable or unrealizable dreams, with our own individual perception of the world and with our ideas about the future. The fact is we strive to be closer to the stars, but lose the Earth. The album is having all of the components that a classic Funeral Doom album should be tempered with: deep, desolated growls, alluring acoustic guitar transitions, drown oriented synthesizer parts, mournfully slow yet heavy riffs and tasteful yet dreary melodic guitar components.  The album, clocking in at near an hour, creates the aura of getting buried into the grave of intense depression. Prepare to be crushed amongst the gloomy passages of 06 unadulterated Funeral Doom tracks.

Highly Recommended To: The Listeners of Ea, Worship, Evoken, Mournful Congregation & Frowning.

Out Now On Hells Headbangers – HOBBS ANGEL OF DEATH


“Heaven Bled” (12″ Gatefold LP w/ 7″ EP)

Pressed as a 12″ with 7″ housed in a gatefold cover with gold foil stamping on the front and back. Available on gold and black vinyl. Features a different layout than the European pressing.

HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present the long-awaited comeback album of HOBBS’ ANGEL OF DEATH, Heaven Bled. Helmed by one relentless maniac named Peter Hobbs, HOBBS ANGEL OF DEATH are one of the more unsung cult favorites of ’80s metal. Hailing from Australia many years before it was cool to do so, the band released two classic demos in 1987, Angel of Death and the telltale Virgin Metal Invasion From Down Under, before time came for the inevitable debut album. That album, 1988’s Hobbs’ Angel of Death, was released by Steamhammer during the label’s glory years, and quickly found a devoted legion of fans enthralled to HOBBS’ Kreator-meets-Dark Angel style of deathrash. With a unique charisma that was devilishly gleeful in a sense, Hobbs’ Angel of Death sired the band’s self-tagged “virgin metal,” which worked in both connotations of the word. It would be many years before a follow-up, 1995’s Inheritance, and the band broke up not long after.

Come 2002, however, HOBBS’ ANGEL OF DEATH would re-form and play a number of European festivals and scattered tour dates over the next decade, but aside from the Hobbs’ Satan Crusade compilation of the two demos, no new material had yet arisen. But now, courtesy of longtime fans HELLS HEADBANGERS, the first all-new recording of HOBBS’ ANGEL OF DEATH in over two decades has finally come to pass. Titled Heaven Bled, this 12-song firestorm of thrashing death metal (“deathened” thrash?) proves that time has not dulled Peter Hobbs’ passion one bit nor do the band once rest on their laurels. Much like ATOMIC AGGRESSOR’s Sights of Suffering – which HELLS HEADBANGERS released to widespread acclaim in 2014 – Heaven Bled is undoubtedly infused with HOBBS’ classic past, but is recast in a powerfully streamlined manner where the songwriting and execution take center stage and rawness and youthful enthusiasm are no longer the guiding principles. There’s demonic fury in abundance, but it’s tempered with the quiet confidence of age and wisdom, through which Hobbs LOUDLY casts his incisive gaze on a whole host of subjects, each one more vitriolic (and catchier) than the next. Altogether, Heaven Bled is a timeless blend of extreme metals throughout the ages, sounding as fresh as HOBBS’ ANGEL OF DEATH’s explosion onto the international scene in 1987.
