FUIL NA SEANCHOILLE LP
Raw, hypnotic, transcendental black metal from Ireland, this 12" collects two out-of-print demos from Fuil Na Seanchoille ("Blood Of The Old Forest" in Gaelic). Remastered for vinyl with original artwork by Jake Kobrin, 2008's "Demo MMVIII" and 2009's "Bitter Dusk Of Futures Past" represent the horror, atrocity and beauty of Ireland's genocidal history. A ritualistic howl far removed from the pallid farce of so-called 'Pagan BM', F.N.S. convey a psychedelic bestialism amidst sinister occultic guitar spirals, crushing distorted bass and hideous abyssal roars of defiance. Old school black metal in the vein of BEHERIT, VON and DARKTHRONE with a touch of ULVER, this is complex simplicity, loss and spite, the brutal futility, the vicious desolation of being in collision with fleeting moments of reality. Dichotomies, contradictions and opposites reflecting the dual nature of humanity: the beast vs. transcendent man.

SEX MESSIAH - Hymn Of The Apocalypse 7''
A mammoth wave of coughing up of blood, a monstrous lava tsunami arosing from the nothingness nest of rudeness, simplicity and Metal bareness where unpretentious sounds copulate deliriously. The raw riffing evokation of Sex Messiash mesmerizes catapultating to an old, yet not dead, era of straight writing understanding, via the mere aim of provoking through the nausea and demented void of the unexpected, sending shivers down the spine just for the sake of impudence and humiliation. It may result familiar while on the other hand, is a total chaotic nihilist attempt against sanity and good taste. Determinated as they're about breaking the protective circle of mental integrity and morality values, obnoxiousness and illness is all that remains once they've come across your way.

UNCANNY - The Path of Flesh 7" (GREEN VINYL)
Formed in 1990, Sweden’s Uncanny was an early progenitor of the Swedish death metal scene. After a couple demos, a split and an oft-overlooked full-length in 1994, Uncanny faced an untimely and unfortunate demise. Eighteen years after their lone debut, “Splenium for Nyktophobia,” Uncanny returns with two brand new tracks featured on this 7”. This is not a reformation without merit. “Creation’s Tomb” and “The Path of Flesh” are authentic slabs of death metal done the old way. This 7” is presented in three editions. Black vinyl version with matte finish glue pocket and insert, the limited green vinyl version which is exclusive to the UK’s Me Saco Un Ojo Records and the limited white vinyl version exclusive to Dark Descent Records. Cover art was skillfully provided by Rafał Kruszyk.
