Today, Blood Harvest Records sets October 27th as the international release date for the highly anticipated debut album of America's Malleus, Storm of Witchcraft, on CD, 12" vinyl, and cassette tape formats.
(Vinyl & Cassette release dates t.b.a.)
Originally self-released during the autumn of 2016 but only digitally and on tape, so enthralled by Malleus' endlessly headbanging filth was Blood Harvest that the label just HAD to release it on ALL physical formats! 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!

PLEASE READ BEFORE E-MAILING ASKING ABOUT YOUR ORDER!!
Due to the vast amount of pre-orders for the SUFFERING HOUR, CONTAMINATED, ATAVISMA, VEHEMENT records, I am a bit behind on mail-order activities.
Pretty much all pre-orders have been shipped out.
We are trying to catch up on orders in general as well as shipping out stuff in chronological order.
Your order is not forgotten or ignored...
At the moment I am still handling all Blood Harvest activities as a one-man operation...
I also have a full-time job, family and bands...in other words a life beside all the record madness ;)
There's a lot of major changes in motion with the label/mail-order. All of positive nature.
Thanks to everyone who (pre)ordered. Your support is very much appreciated!
