Gortal's new album "Deamonolith" will be released on December, 6th2012, under the flag of Pagan Records. Major, the guitarist, commented the forthcoming stuff: "We are devoted to classic Death Metal genre and we ignore trends and fashion. If You expect modern plastic production and arrangements, just do not listen to us. If You still read it,and expect merciless blast beats, crushing tempo shifts, thrilling riffs & solos inspired by ghosts ov early 90ties. Everything emphasised by powerful furious growls! Check out our first blow and stay watchful for another deamon to be unleashed within few days!"

One of the most memorable pioneers of Finnish first-wave death metal, Convulse were there in 1990 alongside bands such as Xysma, Disgrace, and Abhorrence to create a scene which was to become legendary. Formed in Nokia in early 1990, the band was quickly snapped up by Thrash Records from France, and the future cult classic "World Without God" appeared a year later.
After an 18-year break, Convulse returned in 2012 and played a few comeback shows in Finland this year. The band has already been confirmed to play Maryland Deathfest 2013, with more live appearances in the works for the near future. A new Convulse vinyl EP, with two brand-new tracks, is scheduled for a November release, and a new full-length album can be expected in 2013. The band has signed to Svart Records, who will handle both the EP and the album worldwide.
"Our new material has a strong old school death metal feel to it, and the band is tighter than ever before," says Rami Jämsä, the man responsible for lead guitars and vocals. "When recording, we plan to concentrate on the energy brought on by playing everything live - no triggers or ProTools. Nothing beats a well-rehearsed band playing live, be it on stage or in the studio."
For proof of this statement, recent Convulse rehearsal footage can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYeFX0WMDNU.
Icelandic death metal act Angist has signed with Abyss Records. The band's self-released five-track ep "Circle of Suffering" was made available for the first time in North America by Abyss Records this summer and can be purchased at www.officialabyssrecords.com. "Circle of Suffering" was recorded, mixed and mastered by Wann at Emissary Studio. Abyss Records will release the band's full-length debut in the near future.
"Circle of Suffering" track List:
1. Circle Of Suffering
4. Unwelcome Thoughts
5. Death Incarnate
Swedish legendary Gorement has inked a worldwide deal with Century Media Records for the release of the band's entire catalog.
"Within The Shadow Of Darkness - The Complete Recordings" will be made available on September 24 on 2CD and double vinyl as well as digital download.
Other than on Gorement's discography compilation, "Darkness Of The Dead" (released in 2004), the entire musical content included on the upcoming release has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes by Dan Swano, who has already been in charge for the production of Gorement's demos and the "Into Shadows" EP.

"Within The Shadow Of Darkness" features cover artwork by German/Swiss artist Carlos Schwabe (1926) whose creepy painting "La Vague" fits the release like perfectly. The album is packed with everything you can ask for: liner notes by the band, a detailed interview done by Nicola Costantini (well known for his books "Encyclopedia of Svensk Dodsmetall" and "The Return ... Of Svensk Dodsmetall"), all lyrics and loads of old flyers, photos, covers, fanzine interviews, etc.
Massacre will release a seven-inch single, "Condemned To The Shadows", on July 30, in time for the group's appearance at the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany. The single, which is now available for pre-order at CMDistro.com, will contain two brand new songs - "Succumb To Rapture" and "Back From Beyond" - that were recorded in February at CGM Studios in Altamonte Springs, Florida with Tim Vazquez at the helm.
The cover artwork for "Condemned To The Shadows" was created by Richard Schouten and can be seen here: www

Devourment has entered the studio to record their new album and first for new label, Relapse Records. The band is tracking at Mana Recordings in St. Petersburg, FL with legendary death metal icon Erik Rutan . The album promises to be their heaviest, most crushing release to date and will see an early 2013 release. Tentative song titles include "Fucked With Rats" and "Fifty Ton War Machine".
Devourment frontman Mike Majewski commented on the upcoming record "This will be the deepest album we have done for sure. Definitely expect the intensity, but also more thought out song structures. I would say a bit of a throwback to old school brutal bands, but with the signature Devourment elements."
