Gevurah, AmphisbaenA & Chthe'ilist OUT NOW:

  This day sees the release of a Canadian trinity of filth....




















Grace026: Gevurah (Can) - "Dialog Of Broken Stars" 7" EP
     
"...Now they gleam more than ever...Turned to dark stars of black light. A new dawn of endless night. Broken and unbroken, they shine of pure light..."
Gevurah strikes back with a new 2 song EP: "Dialog Of Broken Stars". The perfect bridge between "Necheshirion" and "Hallelujah!", this EP features one bleak hymn of horror and void...Black Metal in it's purest form..the second track, an ambient experiment, which aims to take the listener on a spiritual journey beyond the stars, concludes this release.
Due out this past Winter but plagued with delays from our (now former) pressing plant, the "Dialog Of Broken Stars" has now begun...


Grace031: Chthe'ilist (Can) - "Le Dernier Crépuscule" Cassette

  The cassette version (licensed from Profound Lore) of the anticipated debut CHTHE’ILIST album “Le Dernier Crepuscule” is now available to order through our website and ship. Bizarre and rotten melodies...strange tales and vibrations of old magick...Truly a Death Metal monument and one of Death Metal’s defining moments of 2016 in its morbid, otherworldly and labyrinthine atmosphere.
Exclusive art/layout to this format. 150 copies produced.

Sample: Le Dernier Crépuscule

Grace032: AmphisbaenA (Can) - "S/t" Cassette

"It has a twin head, that is one at its tail-end as well, as though it were not enough for poison to be poured out of one mouth."

   Being the mythological two-headed snake with a taste for ants and human corpses, Amphisbaena seems a star-crossed name for a band featuring current and ex-members of Antediluvian, Rites of Thy Degringolade, and Weapon. Although you may see it somewhere described as such, Amphisbaena’s self-titled debut EP is more than just an offering of meta-sadistic, anti-cosmic smothering blackened death. By taking an overall Daedalian approach to writing their songs and supplanting conventional riffs with movements (i.e. not a lot of licks or repetition), Amphisbaena’s arrived at something rather artful for a metal demo. Additionally, three of its four members provide vocals and the result is something like a Greek tragedy set in some post-apocalyptic opium den with Haasiophis of Antediluvian cast as the gurgling chorus. 

Sample: AmphisbaenA

Lycus "Chasms" & Siaskel "Haruwen Airen" Cassettes Released:

Grace0029: Siaskel (Chile) - "Haruwen Airen" Cassette.

 The band uses Spanish and the 'Ona' language: the language of the Selk'nam, an indigenous people in the Patagonian region of southern Argentina and Chile, including the Tierra del Fuego islands. The people's cultural independence finally got more or less extinct in the middle of the 20th century, caused by the invasion of ethnic Europeans. 

"Siaskel" was an unmerciful-devourer of man, woman & children on the popular myths of the Selk'nam people at the end of Patagonia and he became a volcano after being conquered by a shaman.... Siaskel play a style of Black Death Metal not unlike their namesake. Unmerciful but at times melodic. Growling macabre passages amid a melee of razor sharp riffs and barbaric bludgeoning seeped in South American lore....
Definitely for fans of Sarcofago, Dissection and The Chasm.

Grace016 - Hail / Thoabath - "Corrupted Bodies I : Blood" Cassette:
  "Corrupted Bodies I: Blood" boasts 2 tracks each creeping over the 13 minute mark. Hail, with their impressive resume of mixed styles present their track CUT THE BLOOD. A steely, harsh, noise affair beckoning to the old ways of Cold Meat and true Death Industrial. This is something sinister...darker...colder. Abusing everything and anything it gets its hands on...
Thoabath stabs forward with the track OCULI W.A.C. Thoabath is a solo project of Mr. A.C. Way (Sutekh Hexen etc.). Wrought with harsh noise bursts and calming chants, OCULI forces you to simultaneously meditate and praise 

violence.

Grace018: Auroch - "Seven Veils" Cassette / 7":
  Auroch spits forth from Vancouver, Canada with 2 new and exclusive tracks. Hateful, relentless death metal played at impossible speeds. . Technical and morbid. Featuring members of the Death-gods, Mitochondrion, Auroch stand alone and tower above all their contemporaries with "Seven Veils". Released on both cassette and 7" formats (7"in production).







Grace021: Décombres - "S​/​T" Cassette: 
  Hailing from Quebec, Canada, Décombres is the solo project of P. Boucher of Chthe'ilist. Ferocious and raw Black Metal with a razor sharp execution. A somber and solitary aura surrounds the 7 hymns that make this self titled cassette. Fans of Moonblood take note.









Grace022: Black Earth - "A Cryptic Howl Of Morbid Truth" Cassette:
  Mantric dissolution of suffocating and hopeless ritual ambient invocations, hailing among the ruins through improvisational meditative trances - from the unconscious to the enlightenment, spawning its swarming amalgam of noise, black metal and dark ambient miasmas. Droning asphyxiating psalms for the spiritually moribund, and the already dead. A very special release for us... comes housed in a full color slip-case.






Grace025: Ēōs - "S​/​T" Cassette:
  Ēōs hail from Washington state, USA and play some of the most miserable and superb Funeral Doom the genre has witnessed since the kingly Thergothon. Weeping passages and wretched vocals wrapped in a cerecloth of agony. Easily the most anticipated Death/Doom release of the year. Special hand screen-printed inserts.Metallic gold ink on specialty paper.

Disemballerina - "Undertaker" LP OUT NOW:

Grace0015:


















   We are proud to announce the release of one of the most stunning and moving albums to come along in a very long time. Disemballerina's - "Undertaker" LP.

   Disemballerina hail from Portland, Oregon and play a morbid twist of outsider classical / acoustic doom-metal and noisy, goth chamber music. Undertaker is heavy with unconventionally heavy instruments (Cello,violin, acoustic guitar and harp). Somber yet dynamic.. This masterpiece evokes a beautiful and brooding mood and stands as tribute to our cessation of breath. Every note played with conviction and poise. Such originality helps them stand as outsiders among outsiders in the best way possible.
  You could describe Disemballerina as "Neo-Classical", but they are simply much, much more.
Presented on 140g, "Portland storm cloud gray / lividity purple" colored vinyl and housed in a foldout sleeve. Order yours HERE.

A.M.S.G. - "Anti-Cosmic Tyranny" & NAFARMAAN - "Quayamat Lullaby" EP OUT NOW! NEW STORE LAYOUT:

   Grace011:  A.M.S.G. - ANTI-COSMIC TYRANNY LP






     From notorious, Canadian Black Metal terrorists, A.M.S.G: “Anti-Cosmic Tyranny. An album whose mission statement is to “salute and push forth the awakened era of Esoteric Luciferian Supremacy.” 
Helmed by black metal crime lord, Angelfukk Witchhammer (also a member of Gloria Diaboli and the legendary and now-defunct Ouroboros cult.), A.M.S.G. play brand of primitive old-school black metal that summons the ancient spirit from an age and era where black metal was deemed for ritual use and unabashed devil worship. Reminiscent of the vibe of such Black Metal luminaries as Mortuary Drape, early Samael, early Rotting Christ, Necromantia, and Varathron, with their debut full-length, A.M.S.G. have created an audial Satanic ritual steeped in raw and harsh, unique and polarizing Black Metal, unlike anything being released in the genre today. It is an album that conjures twisted, uneasy and deranged, mid-paced, progressive, odd song structures while incorporating dark, melancholic drear into its sound canvas of total death worship. Through its myriad of layered and subliminal sounds, noise, whispers and chants which culminate to form this 
Black Metal ritual of sonic invocation to honor the endless Dark Aeon and the CHAOTIC BLACK LIGHT!

Written and composed in its entirety by Angelfukk Witchhammer behind prison walls, “Anti-Cosmic Tyranny” according to A.W., is “...a kind of an irony because the "anti-cosmic" is of formlessness and separation, a cosmic freedom...but to Christianity, Judaism, or Islamic thought, the 11 thrones are their enemy. What is our freedom is their tyranny and vice versa. We think of God/Yahweh as enslavers and living under the ‘cosmic tyranny’. Indeed a title for them to fear!” 
Dedicated to the memory of Kaos Abhorrer.....died by his own hands July 9, 2014.

"A.M.S.G." stands for "Ad Majorem Satanae Gloriam" which is Latin and means "For the Greater Glory of Satan".
