HERETICAL SECT is a reclusive collective fixated on the physical and spiritual genocides of the Southwest.
The Southwest; represented through a nostalgic lense of cowboy culture, rarely exposes the most brutal atrocities of American history. Churches chained shut and lit on fire with the congregation inside, severed limbs piled in the streets, and disease and slavery are burned into the memory of the landscape. These horrors are sonically juxtaposed against the natural beauty of the high desert. Expansive skies, deep canyons, painted red rocks, all witnesses to untold butchery and grief.
HERETICAL SECT features members of other prominent Santa Fe (NM) bands, yet members remain hooded and anonymous. Although the band rarely appears live, it is a primary conceptual entity for its members. May all life learn to die.

occult black metal from denmark, feat. members of ligfaerd and serpent lair
Originally formed in the year of the millenium under the name Hrapp and several demos later, it was in 2005 when the Danish Black Metal trio changed its name into LIGFAERD. Following a line-up change, numerous EPs, splits as well as two full-length albums, live appearances such as at Metal Magic Festival, the band quickly began to receive high praise in the underground Black Metal scene. Today, LIGFAERD are finally presenting us the first details about their third album titled ‘Den Ildrøde Konge’, which is set for a release on March 15th 2019 with Berlin-based Vendetta Records! In the band’s tradition the lyrics do not only come in Danish, with ‘Den Ildrøde Konge’ LIGFAERD are continuing their path on the darkest art of metal and deliver a fierce beast of pure evil, the band’s strongest and most compelling work to date.

Hailing from Athens, Greece, Akrotheism formed in 2012 to perform violent-yet-experimental black metal which deeply explores matters of esotericism and philosophy. The band's first recording came in 2013 as a split EP with countrymen Order of the Ebon Hand. Emboldened by that momentum, a year later came the band's debut album, Behold the Son of Plagues, which was a shockingly accomplished work for such a young band. Then, in 2015, Akrotheism delivered two tracks to a split release with countrymen Septuagint, which showed an even bolder and more daring vision of black metal. During this time, the band made select festival appearances once a year, playing alongside such esteemed bands as Ofermod, Necros Christos, Acherontas, and Bölzer among others.

The awe-inspiring Finnish metallic psychedelicists Oranssi Pazuzu and their Tampere cohorts Dark Buddha Rising, known for their grandiose slug-paced ritualist doom metal, have recorded a new album, which will be released on Svart Records on April 5th, 2019. The amalgam of these two entities is melted as one on Syntheosis, to be released under the moniker Waste of Space Orchestra.
Syntheosis began as a commissioned piece for Roadburn Festival. The fest, which began as a small-scale gathering of stoner rock addicts has evolved over the years into a four-day celebration of heavy music in all of its possible forms and interpretations, from riff-worship to punishing soundscapes and beyond. The list of Roadburn performers over the years is a veritable who’s who of underground heavy culture, with everyone from Neurosis and Sleepto Godflesh having performed at the event.

Infused with the same spirit as the preceding EPs, with Into the Wild VOODUS has honed their craft to its most fierce and finessed essence. This record is indeed a wild and winding ride through the murky depths of starkly melodic yet crypt-pure black metal. Their sound is staunchly rooted in the 1990s - with ice-cold melodies racing across the searing surge of black metal – but breathes a refreshing sense of dynamics and pacing. VOODUS does not engage with the blast-a-thons of old, the indiscernible blur of one song protracted over 30-plus minutes. Instead, the quartet unloads expert compositional variety here, with memorable melodicism constantly at the forefront - all of it framed in a clear and cutting production courtesy of the esteemed Necromorbus Studio. And it's a truly epic experience clocking in at 61 minutes, allowing the listener's wanderlust to truly run wild.
Death worshiping doom-death monsters Iteru finally having their 35 minute debut "Ars Moriendi" releaesed on LP. Limited to 300 units on black vinyl.
For fans of THE RUINS OF BEVERAST, URFAUST, BLUT AUS NORD, EVOKEN, and the likes...
Originally released in 2017 on cassette but selling out each edition three times over, ITERU's Ars Moriendi has quickly become a highly considered & essential piece of modern underground doom-death. And listening to the expansive 34 minutes of this debut recording, it's easy to hear why: ITERU craft a crushing-yet-spacious experience of damnation and depression, almost effortlessly moving from spiraling suicidal melody to earth-shaking heft, and smothering the listener every step of the way. Even the vocals themselves seem to be world-eating, a force of nature (or even the supernatural) intent on utter oblivion. But, unlike so much doom-death past and especially present, Ars Moriendi always conveys a sense of movement - no sludge for its own sake here - and an expert grasp of dynamics; down every labyrinth, there is both light and shade, and all is DOOMED.
