Gehenna

'WW' vinyl release coming November 11th.

'WW', Gehenna's ferocious Norwegian black metal assault will be released on 180gm black vinyl on November 11th, & can now be pre-ordered HERE.
"WW" was Gehenna's sixth album, originally released in 2005, and was notable for the appearance of Frost from Satyricon on drums. The album saw a stripped-down approach to writing compared to some of their previous works, with these primitive black metal tracks exuding a dark, cold, yet brutal atmosphere, written by co-founding member Sanrabb, with the lyrics based around themes of war.

Gift of Gods

Nocturno Culto's Gift of Gods - 'Receive' mini-album coming October. Pre-orders available

Gift of Gods is the name given to this new beast from the mind of Nocturno Culto, one half of the legendary Norwegian black metal band, Darkthrone. For Gift of Gods, Nocturno turns his hand to creating pure unbridled heavy metal excellence, taking in a vast array of influences from decades past to concoct a special whirlwind of melodic riffing & headbanging anthems on this 30 minute heavy metal pilgrimage. ’Receive’ also features a rendition of ’Looking For an Answer’ originally by obscure Swedish 80’s band, Universe.

A labour of love over several years since its initial inception, Nocturno performs all instruments himself & has also been responsible for recording this mini-album at his own studio. ’Receive’ was mixed & mastered by Jack Control at Enormous Door, after having recently worked with Nocturno on Darkthrone’s ’The Underground Resistance’.
 
’Receive’ will be released October 28th on vinyl & CD on Peaceville Records, & can be pre-ordered from HERE.

Nocturno comments on the release:

"Finally, the mini album is done. Gift Of Gods has been a great ride for me. I don't want this to end now, so I will most likely work on new material. Thanks to my partner in crime, K.A.Hubred, we got to rehearse during the last two years. What to expect? I have no idea how to describe this, but it's metal for sure".
