Horror of Horrors might be the most underrated death metal bands out of the early 90’s. One of the first extreme bands out of Maryland, here are 2 tracks from the upcoming re-released and re-mastered album (combining the two earlier released albums “Fangs Breaking the Skin” and “Sounds of Eerie”). This is a promotional package since their record label hasn’t even heard it yet. Enjoy, Highly Recommended for fans of early death metal!
Under The Falling

I've always thought of this band as a better Stargazer. Progressive Black/Doom/Death, if you have an open mind give this band a try.. members of Mournful Congregation, Stargazer and... Portal.

Here it is folks another release from the mighty Profound Lore, and who couldn't write a better review then the label themselves (this also might be laziness on my behalf.)
"Featuring two members from fellow like-minded death metal fiends PORTAL, Impetuous Ritual have delivered a work of true death metal blasphemy that comes across as a vile mix of the crawling doomy dirge-like ambience of INCANTATION’s “Onward To Golgotha”, the ferocious sonic violence of BESTIAL WARLUST’s “Blood And Valour” and with the surreal-like blurred riffing of Portal respectively. Nonetheless “Relentless Execution” shall deliver its unholy carnage in manifesting a true vision of what brutal death metal should portray."

What sounds like a epic movie soundtrack is actually just an insanely good funeral doom band called Black Wreath. Combining actual violins and cellos with actual funeral music and the occasional creepy grunts. Highly recommended!!

It's a sad day when I'm not informed that Bunkur releases a new album which actually came out in September. Usual stuff 1 song, 1 hour, really heavy doom. I posted an earlier album from them here so when you get this get Bludgeon as well.

Garm of Ulver fame provides the vocals to this almost flawless black metal masterpiece, and still one of my all time favorite metal singers. Even though I'm not huge on symphonic black metal I highly recommend this record.

It's finally here! The band I named this blog after, the band I spend way too much money and time on, the band that's playing deathfest and I'm loosing sleep over, here it is the brand new record!!! I pre-ordered Portal's new record from Profound Lore about a week ago and I have not been disappointed and while it's not like Seepia or Outre it's still a great record none the less. So stop reading this and get it!

Yes the much talked about Old Funeral and this record will NOT let you down. In the bands line up it saw such greats as Abbath (Immortal) and of course Varg (Burzum). Although this is a compilation it's a great one ranging from raw death metal to low-fi black metal.
If you've never heard Wishbone Ash before I will be both glad and unhappy to tell you this is the place to start and finish. Outside of the self-titled record which features every song on this record except for the unreleased track "Roads of Day to Day" which is probably my favorite next to "Errors Of My Way".. and.. "Queen Of Torture"...and... "Lady Whiskey." Enjoy this is great 70s blues rock.

How else to celebrate the reuniting of Kansas City death/black monoliths Order From Chaos? Easy, post my favorite record and hope that people listen and come to the shows. Plus, how can you go wrong with a band that has H.R. Giger work on the sleeve... it works for Celtic Frost.

Couldn't have put it better myself: "Say there was a heavy rock festival in like '72 where Black Sabbath, Wishbone Ash, the Scorpions, Budgie, and like Cactus are supposed to play, but then, due to a series of plane crashes and natural disasters, only 1 surviving member from each band can make it. In order to calm down the crowd of heavy rockers, Iommi grabs a couple dudes from the other bands and puts together an emergency band. And then Uli Roth says, "We don't need a singer because he'll just get in the way of the riffs." I think that's what Serpent Throne is aiming for. Whether we get there or not is another story, but we'll drink some beer and rip some guitar harmonies along the way."

Here's where I lay our old band to rest, I figured while I am running a blog I might as well post my old bands demo. To this day the record remains unmastered, somewhere out there we have a live performance recorded that sounds terrible.

It took awhile to track down this gem but it's completely worth it. Extreme funeral doom! If you're new to it, it's a good place to start.

2. Loss - (To Pass Away) Death March Towards My Ruin
3. Orthodox - Heritage
4. Mournful Congregation - Left Unspoken
