Selling vinyl - Extreme Metal and Dark music
Since their formation in the dying days of the year 2013, PHRENELITH have established themselves as a menacing force on the contemporary death metal scene. Dwelling in the dark pits of Copenhagen, the band honed their deadly craft, releasing a wealth of well-received demos, splits, and EPs. These primitive outbursts led to the release of their debut album, Desolate Endscape, in 2017, which has earned them much renown and praise, further solidifying their place in underground death metal. Furthermore, that debut album took them to far-flung corners of the world, allowing them to tour extensively in Europe and North America, and make festival appearances at Maryland DeathFest and Asakusa DeathFest in Japan among others. Several years having passed since the conception of their monumental debut album, PHRENELITH have been slowly conjuring up new material, which has culminated in the creation and recording of a new full-length that will soon be unleashed upon the world. Titled Chimaera, PHRENELITH’s second album comprises seven songs of bludgeoning death metal, with lyrics heavily inspired by the darker terms of Greek mythology and shows a horrid-yet-familiar visage. While delving into new and uncharted musical territory, incorporating new refining elements, PHRENELITH’s attack is accompanied by the downtuned darkness and death-rattling emissions that the band is known for. Truly, it is not hyperbole to suggest that Chimaera eclipses the expansive horror of Desolate Endscape.

Denmark's SORT SIND were born out of the ashes of sulfuric might in 2020, into a darkness of corrosion of the mind, with the members currently hailing from the likes of Ascendency, Had, Sulphurous, and Taphos. Soon, the duo released a two-song demo, portending grave deeds on the horizon...
At least, that horizon looms with I Skyggen af Livet, SORT SIND's debut full-length. A new dark chapter, the album consists of eight songs in a swift 32 minutes. SORT SIND's surging & slipstreaming attack is far more epic than those compact runtimes suggest; with shadows swirling through the maze of their twisted minds, the duo construct muscular, deathened black metal that reminds of the late '90s vanguard whilst emitting a freshness of approach. Put another way, I Skyggen af Livet has few modern analogues: SORT SIND are their own entity of vengeful, grim misery. No matter what genre boundaries one places around it, the duo's debut album unshackles itself and takes the listener on a journey downward through the spiral of madness, revealing new layers of dementia the more that listener submits to their coming of chaos. Classic black/death songcraft, then, but suffused with restless, red-eyed energy - I Skyggen af Livet is only the beginning of SORT SIND. This is black metal darkness!

ERSHETU was formed in 2021 by conceptualist/lyricist Void and composer Sacr to create cinematic music which merges epic, obscure and atmospheric Metal with the poignant dramaticism of film scores.
Evocative debut album "Xibalba" - which focuses upon Mayan folklore - revolves around an impeccable orchestral core swathed in folk instrumentation, from which the unmistakeable impassioned singing and entranced chanting of Lars Are Nedland (BORKNAGAR, SOLEFALD) soars skyward before cascading down into an arid undertow of textural Black Metal guitars performed by Vindsval (BLUT AUS NORD).
