Black metallers LUCIFER'S CHILD and MYSTIFIER have partnered up for a Greco-Brazilian split release on Agonia Records.
George Emmanuel (ex-Rotting Christ), who co-launched LUCIFER'S CHILD in 2013, commented: "After almost a year and half of isolation and profound research, we gave birth to a new seed of evil, 'Under Satan's Wrath'. This deep rooted journey contains three new songs from each band, with some special revelations where conspiracies between Mystifier and Lucifer's Child divulge. A further step beyond the borders of safety, a further step into the abyss where our freedom to craft and sculpt our sound liberates."
On behalf of MYSTIFIER, whose been around since 1989, founder Beelzeebubth commented: "It's a pleasure taking part on this monunental split EP with our Greek comrades. It was the right moment to reveal our new band members: Kaverna on lead guitar and Apophys on drums. We met George during a long European tour in 2016. Nice to see him conquer the world with Lucifer's Child. Hope in the next days, after this pandemic lockdown, we can share the stage together again."
E-L-R's sophomore full-length "Vexier" oscillates elegantly between velvet darkness and flaring bursts of high energy. The style of the Swiss has been dubbed 'doomgaze' and 'post-metal' and both terms apply loosely to the trio's meandering, down-tempo doom-epics. E-L-R's hypnotic phrases that are constantly varied and warped in repeating loops are reminiscent of shamanic rituals imbued with psychedelic colours. The trio weaves a subtle tapestry with diligence and persistence that depicts a labyrinth full of intricate details and hidden treasures.

Five long years after their fascinating debut, Milan-based duo A Pale December deliver their sophomore album, Death Panacea. Compared to The Shrine Of Primal Fire, Death Panacea steers towards more aggressive, warring sounds. The “atmospheric black metal” label which so aptly described their debut album, is now just one of the many, partial definitions which could be used to define the band’s music.
When asked about their new opus, multi-instrumentalists Riccardo Di Bella and Ernesto Ciotola provided the following, strong statement: “While many metal albums seem to appeal to a feeling of fierceness, a call to war, an urge to fight something, we wanted to express the opposite. Death Panacea is an album about defeat and hopelessness, about the inherent futility of human strife and all our laughable attempts at masking this unescapable nature.
We wanted to praise failing and giving up, as opposed to perseverance, pride and the grinding mentality. We wanted to praise the rejects above the leaders, who naively think they can escape this race towards oblivion, and the coward above the fighting man, whose only fault was believing in the frail concept of nation and a false sense of belonging.
While distancing ourselves from these delusional sentiments, we also didn't want to fall into optimistic nihilism; the idea that the awareness of an impending void can grant any peace is simply preposterous.
Ultimately, this is the meaning that lies behind the title of the album: death is what keeps us in check and yet is the one and only panacea to all our anguishes. In all this, one could almost find a cold comfort, knowing that the top step of the podium is eventually just a springboard to the abyss”.
This fourth album offering into which heavy and agressive riffs collide with bestial and war-driven rythms. The runes have spoken and no sacrifice was done in vain. Savage, hateful and relentless: Nord Hostile.

A CD that compiles everything this Italo/Romanian project has released so far, namely the "4-Track Promo Tape" demo (2020) and the "Sickening Cadaveric Perversion" EP (2020). Larvae was belched forth by Lucilia Sericata (nickname for Vitamaria, ex-Lurking Terror from Rome), an Italian sicko that moved to Bucharest four years ago. The insatiable craving to compose and write lyrics was barely endurable, until the first official rehearsal, featuring Disgusting Dennis on bass and drums, finally took place in December 2019. Lucilia sure as hell knew what she wanted to do regarding lyrical themes, riffs, samples and the reeking atmosphere to enshroud the listener in, so it didn't take long until the band recorded and self-produced the "4-Track Promo Tape" demo in their rehearsal room, in March 2020. The global pandemic and the subsequent lockdown didn't prevent Lucilia from writing new music, and the "Sickening Cadaveric Perversion" EP was spilled over like gory grume in November 2020. LARVAE's main purpose is not to craft any kind of technical or easy-listening tunes, but to infect the listener with the most vile and most atrocious visions to be found on Lucilia's mind, by creating some über-morbid Death/Doom Metal that's so utterly gross and filthy that it almost feels like slo-mo Goregrind. LARVAE, indeed, create life from the dead, and (dis)gracefully bathe in the sullen thoughts that consume decaying souls from the inside.
