In our ongoing investigation of deceptive and outright fraudulent extreme metal acts, we pull the rug under a handful of established outfits that don’t even seem to bother hiding that they are after your money first, artistic integrity a distant second - an audience satisfaction not even registering. The more we pull away the blinds the more obvious these practices become. Maybe your favorite band is in here, maybe your life-long inspiration only cares about the dollars/euros you’re giving him/her? Don’t be fooled, there are plenty of honest, hard-working metal bands everywhere in the scene. It’s just that these money-hungry, artistically vacuum units make it difficult for everybody involved. These bands stopped caring, they lost the passion and fire. In short: they Sold Their Souls...

Arsonist Lodge, who undoubtly admire the Norwegian churchburners of the ‘90s, are however a solid act within this genre. As you can probably guess this is another one-man...

War On Music Records announced today the upcoming vinyl release of the GORGUTS albums From Wisdom To Hate (2001) and Obscura (1998).
added by: Wouter
These records were largely regarded as pioneering works in the technical death metal genre, and set the standard for the decade to follow.
From Wisdom To Hate will be made available on LP for the first time ever, limited to 1,000 copies and coming in April 2011.
Obscura will be issued as a double LP several months afterwards, coinciding with the upcoming CD reissue of the long out of print album.
Gorguts recently reformed with a new lineup including genre heavyweights John Longstreth, Colin Marston and Kevin Hufnagel. They are expected to enter the studio soon to record a brand new album for release sometime in 2011.
