Unreleased Last Crime songs

added by Alex Deller on Friday July 13 2018 in Reissues

New label Sunken Temple is releasing a cassette of two unreleased Last Crime songs. They were recorded back in 1998 by J. Robbins at Inner Ear studios. The same label is also releasing ten tracks of unreleased stuff by Helen Of Troy, which should also be worth a pop.

Void Rot - 'Consumed by Oblivion' MLP

added by Alex Deller on Sunday July 8 2018 in New Releases

The ever-reliable Sentient Ruin Records have teamed up with Everlasting Spew to release a mini-album from Minneapolis death-doomers Void Rot. Say they: "With their debut MLP Consumed by Oblivion Void Rot unravel 15+ minutes of earth-shaking and telluric death-doom that erupts from the depths of hades and pulverizes into the cosmos, weaving ancestral death metal and atmospheric doom into a dismal and soul-crushing deluge of riffs to construct a sonic colossus of unseen enormity, which will be sure to please all fans of bands like Spectral Voice, Anhedonist, Inverloch, Indesinence and Krypts." It'll be out on cassette, CD and digital on AUgust 3, with a vinyl version to follow later in the year.
