April 6th is set to be the international release date for Inisans' highly anticipated debut album, Transition, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.
Hailing from Sweden, the eternal hotbead of death metal, Inisans have quietly built a name for themselves on the back of their lone demo, Morbid Vision of Death. Originally released in 2012, Morbid Vision of Death was later reissued in 2014 as a split cassette with French comrades Skelethal. From there, the Inisans name began to build, all due to the band's fresh take on rotten old death metal. References to be made were plenty - early Swedish darkness, pre-prog Cadaver, classic Pentagram (Chile), even EP-era Sadistic Intent - but the way the quartet mixed them all together made for something unique.
Alas, that flash of poisonous promise has come to fuller fruition on Inisans' debut full-length, Transition. Taking their Metal of Death down roads alternately more sepulchral and cosmic, Transition indeed is the sound of a fiery young band feeding their flames of creation. Bursting into being with perfunctory punctuation, Transition soon settles into shape as the restless, forever-roiling spectre of ancient death metal darkness being illuminated with haunting 'n' horrific shapes. The pulse 'n' pound is both barbaric and fleet-footed, hammering onward with an insistence that's nothing short of graceful - and yet, it's equally garish and grimy in texture. Riffs rudely twist into different forms whilst remaining rooted in linear composition; from lo-end crunge to high-fret hysteria, the full spectrum of death metal savagery is well covered. Bellows from the deep reverberate with sinister portent, all the while remaining (eerily) intelligible. Production, too, ably highlights the swirling extremes Inisans so deftly canvass: in many ways, the combined sound and sensation of Transition looks a lot like its cover artwork.
So rooted in the old, rotten ways, it's remarkably fresh, Inisans' Transition is the New Sound of Old Death Metal.

Today, Blood Harvest Records announces the signing of Church of Disgust. The first fruit of this union shall be the vinyl LP release of the band's second album, Veneration of Filth. Originally released in 2016 via comrades Memento Mori, the vinyl of edition of Veneration of Filth should see release this spring/summer via Blood Harvest.
Church of Disgust bring back Rotting Death Metal with a vengeance! Hailing from San Marcos, Texas, Church of Disgust are heavily influenced by the morbid writings of Brian Keene, as well as the master of cosmic horror, H.P. Lovecraft. Musical influences include Cianide, Slugathor, early Death, Hellhammer, Autopsy, and Bolt Thrower, but with no desire to simply follow or be written off as another old-school throwback. Instead, Church of Disgust take those references as a mere starting point only to regurgitate them as a repulsive, uncompromising, and genuine form of rancid death metal for all avid fans of the genre to feast upon. Made by diehard fans for diehard fans, their sophomore slab of decomposed flesh titled Veneration of Filth was mastered by Jani Loikas at Studio Cursed (Finland) and features guest grunts and lyrical conjurings by Tobi Zama (Sewercide), Jamie Stewart (Disevered), and the legendary Mike Browning (Nocturnus, Morbid Angel, Incubus). Cover art was drawn by the underground icon Matt "Putrid" Carr and layout was handled by Ola Sjöberg (of God Macabre fame).
While the vinyl edition Veneration of Filth is being prepared for release, Church of Disgust are working on material for their third album, which will also see release through Blood Harvest. For more info, consult the links below.

Degial (swe) – Sepulchral Voice Records
In times when the renunciation of the origin is fashionable and dilutes its essence, DEGIAL comes and redefines the abominable sacred core of DEATH METAL!
After the successful debut "Death's Striking Wings" in 2011 and the praised sophomore album "Savage Mutiny" in 2015 they return with the most violent & merciless album in their career. "Predator Reign" is an intonation of the devil´s wrath and it is a lesson in how Death Metal has to sound and how it is to be presented. A 39 minutes ride of perfectly skilled and performed furiousity. A top notch production by Mersus in the Underground-Studio and a straight but bewitching artwork by Paolo Girardi and Erik Danielsson leave no questions unanswered. Gasp for air within a pure maelstrom of crushing riffs, drum-explosions, solo-shredding and bestial vocals. Moreover, among all this madness the band is still able to create mind-ripping harmonies that will haunt your dreams.
While others try to get rid of the danger and violence in the devil´s music, DEGIAL let in all the murderers, the ancient ones, the morbid angels & the possessed slayers and spit out sheer terror & destruction. Where others nightmares end, DEGIAL begin. So bleed for the devil. With albums like "Predator Reign”, he repays thousand fold. Godspeed, live and light. Welcome death and night!

TAPHOS (dk) – Blood Harvest Records
Taphos was spawned in 2015 with the purpose to create music that evokes desperation and hopelessness. Their music is rooted in death and draws inspirations from all darker aspects of life and life thereafter.
The first eruption took place in form of the demo MMXVI and an EP, named MMXVII, followed soon after. Same year Taphos entered Ballade Studios where enough chaos was captured to produce what will be their first full-length. An aftershock from this séance took place in form of the 'Premonition' tape.
The debut full-length will be unleashed in 2018 through Blood Harvest Records
MMXVI – 2016 demo

MALLEUS – Storm Of Witchcraft 12”LP
We proud to finally present the vinyl edition of ”Storm of Witchcraft” by America's MALLEUS!
Like a relic from a lost time, Storm of Witchcraft rages forward on a rusty 'n' crusty axis of Hellhammer, debut-era Bathory, and early Celtic Frost. However familiar it may sound on paper – and in execution, more so – MALLEUS nevertheless evince an engaging elan that's equal parts devilish fun and all-out evil, splitting the difference between alcoholocaustic gallop and dread-inducing downtempos. And it's aptly titled, too: Storm of Witchcraft possesses that ancient, old-world aura that puts this safely beyond simple “party music.” No matter how you choose to process it, Storm of Witchcraft is a poisonous first strike for MALLEUS!
