Degial (swe) – Sepulchral Voice Records

https://www.facebook.com/Degial-176386435721954/
https://degial.bandcamp.com/

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 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

Legendary Profanatica was among the earliest American black metal bands to emerge in early 90´ies lead by former Incantation member Paul Ledney. Profanatica´s brand of blasphemic black metal has inspired tons of newer generations of black metal bands around the world and to this day maintains a cult legend status in the underground. Canadian Rites of thy Degringolade did three full length albums between 1999 and 2005 before disbanding on a 10 year hiatus. Their name still lingered in the underground over all these years before founding member Paulus Kressman resurrected the band again in 2015 and have since released a demo and a compilation on Nuclear War Now! Auroch is a death metal power-trioalso stemming from Canada and features members of Mitochondrion and the Covenant Collective based out of Vancouver. Auroch has been very active with live performances across North America and Europe and released 3 full lengths so far and are currently signed to Profound Lore Records.

In July of this year, EXECRATION released their much anticipated 4th full length “Return to the Void” on Metal Blade Records to much praise from the international metal press. Unlike the previous two albums, the new album, doesn’t mark a dramatic stylistic shift. The band comments: “It is our most compact album to-date, shorter and with tighter compositions. It’s catchy, complex, prog-infused and intense all at the same time. Coming off of two double 12″ vinyl albums, the first clear goal for writing ‘Return to the Void’ was to deliver the same kind of dynamic and shifting song-writing in a more condensed to-the-point package. Stripping songs down to their essential core has been a driving force while writing, and it shows – there is not a wasted moment on the album. Ticking it at 42 minutes – a perfect fit for the vinyl format – the album takes the listener through a whirlwind of thrash, death, black, and even heavy metal, fast and slow parts, and the trademark Execration shifts in mood, tempo, and atmosphere. As with the previous two albums, we wanted to capture the feel of a live performance, so all the basic tracks (drums, guitars, bass) were recorded live in our rehearsal studio in Oslo over the course of a weekend. Vocals, synths, and various effects where recorded the following weeks with assistance from Andreas Tylden (One Tail, One Head / Altaar). The album was then mixed and mastered by Tom Kvalsvoll of Kvalsonic Labs.

Thematically, the album takes off into outer space, the world of dreams, and philosophic musings on time and space. The album’s seven songs and two instrumental tracks are permeated with the mysteries of the universe, both in lyrical content and concept, and in the music itself. This theme is further brought to life by the magnificent art of Zbigniew M. Bielak that adorns the front cover.”

With them on tour they are bringing REPTILIAN also from Norway. Signed to Edged Circle Productions they have released 1 full length album back in 2016 called “Perennial Void Traverse”.

Review quotes for Execration´s “Return to the Void”:
“Few albums really make you sit up and take notice, but Execration’s “Return To The Void” will, it is a staggering release and challenges the concepts of death metal’s norms and you definitely need to hear it.” – 9/10 http://www.avenoctum.com

“Still nursing a gently throbbing headache from the night before, an impressive crowd is already gathering at Rockefeller as the clock strikes six in the afternoon. The honor of inaugurating the main festival stage has fallen upon Oslo locals Execration. Their brick-shittingly heavy death metal earned them a Norwegian grammy in 2014, and evidently their accomplishment have not gone unnoticed. With a sound that could grind mountains into dust, they get the tired audience moving with skillful abandon. The dual vocals of guitarists Jørgen and Chris range from brutal to downright hellish, and the musicianship is spine-tingling. It’s an incredibly tight performance, filled with twists and turns, representing a ruthless awakening for everyone in attendance.” – Metal Observer on Inferno 2015

“Return to the Void is a damn fine album. In an age where music isn’t always given a large number of re-listens, this is an album which makes it almost impossible not to listen to again and again (and again) and is definitely one of the stronger releases in the genre for the year.” http://www.ghostcultmag.com

Ratings for Execration´s “Return to the Void”:
5/6 Scream Magazine Norway
8/10 Metal Hammer Norway
8/10 Rock Hard Magazine (DE)
8/10 Metal Italia (IT)
8/10 Powerplay Magazine (UK)

Review quotes for Reptilian´s “Perennial Void Traverse”:
“Perennial Void Traverse is an unorthodox, shape shifting beast of insanity and brutality. […] To be able to combine the creepy slowness of Coffins with the flailing, bug eyed intensity of the likes of Autopsy is no mean feat, but Reptilian do it with aplomb.” https://thoseonceloyal.wordpress.com

“Reptilian’s Perennial Void Traverse is a perfect melding of thrash and death metal. Reptilian has developed a very obscure death thrash sound, unparallel to any other death thrash outfit I have heard.” http://metalxtreme.com

“Reptilian is another band who’ve knocked it out of the park on their first pitch. I will await my opportunity to see them live here in the United States.”

The album was then mixed and mastered by Tom Kvalsvoll of Kvalsonic Labs.

Thematically, the album takes off into outer space, the world of dreams, and philosophic musings on time and space. The album’s seven songs and two instrumental tracks are permeated with the mysteries of the universe, both in lyrical content and concept, and in the music itself. This theme is further brought to life by the magnificent art of Zbigniew M. Bielak that adorns the front cover.”

With them on tour they are bringing REPTILIAN also from Norway. Signed to Edged Circle Productions they have released 1 full length album back in 2016 called “Perennial Void Traverse”.

Review quotes for Execration´s “Into the Void”:
“Few albums really make you sit up and take notice, but Execration’s “Return To The Void” will, it is a staggering release and challenges the concepts of death metal’s norms and you definitely need to hear it.” – 9/10 http://www.avenoctum.com

“Still nursing a gently throbbing headache from the night before, an impressive crowd is already gathering at Rockefeller as the clock strikes six in the afternoon. The honor of inaugurating the main festival stage has fallen upon Oslo locals Execration. Their brick-shittingly heavy death metal earned them a Norwegian grammy in 2014, and evidently their accomplishment have not gone unnoticed. With a sound that could grind mountains into dust, they get the tired audience moving with skillful abandon. The dual vocals of guitarists Jørgen and Chris range from brutal to downright hellish, and the musicianship is spine-tingling. It’s an incredibly tight performance, filled with twists and turns, representing a ruthless awakening for everyone in attendance.” – Metal Observer on Inferno 2015

“Return to the Void is a damn fine album. In an age where music isn’t always given a large number of re-listens, this is an album which makes it almost impossible not to listen to again and again (and again) and is definitely one of the stronger releases in the genre for the year.” http://www.ghostcultmag.com

Review quotes for Reptilian´s “Perennial Void Traverse”:
“Perennial Void Traverse is an unorthodox, shape shifting beast of insanity and brutality. […] To be able to combine the creepy slowness of Coffins with the flailing, bug eyed intensity of the likes of Autopsy is no mean feat, but Reptilian do it with aplomb.” https://thoseonceloyal.wordpress.com

“Reptilian’s Perennial Void Traverse is a perfect melding of thrash and death metal. Reptilian has developed a very obscure death thrash sound, unparallel to any other death thrash outfit I have heard.” http://metalxtreme.com

“Reptilian is another band who’ve knocked it out of the park on their first pitch. I will await my opportunity to see them live here in the United States.” http://glaciallymusical.blogspot.no

Killtown Bookings presents; PROFANATICA (us) + RITES OF THY DEGRINGOLADE (can) + AUROCH (can) “Curling Flame over Europe” tour 1st – 17th March 2018!

Killtown Bookings is excited to announce that we will commence booking of the “Curling Flame over Europe” tour with PROFANATICA (us), RITES OF THY DEGRINGOLADE (can) and AUROCH (can)!

The package was announced yesterday as part of the final line-up for Netherlands Death Fest alongside great names such as Emperor, At the Gates, Carcass, Sadistic Intent among many others! The tour will start in the north of Europe on the 1st of March and make its way down to NDF before continuing through central Europe.

This will be the first European tour for Profanatica and the first time ever in Europe for Rites of thy Degringolade! Auroch toured alongside Mitochondrion and Ritual Necromancy back in 2014.

Legendary Profanatica was among the earliest American black metal bands to emerge in early 90´ies lead by former Incantation member Paul Ledney. Profanatica´s brand of blasphemic black metal has inspired tons of newer generations of black metal bands around the world and to this day maintains a cult legend status in the underground. Canadian Rites of thy Degringolade did three full length albums between 1999 and 2005 before disbanding on a 10 year hiatus. Their name still lingered in the underground over all these years before founding member Paulus Kressman resurrected the band again in 2015 and have since released a demo and a compilation on Nuclear War Now! Auroch is a death metal power-trio also stemming from Canada and features members of Mitochondrion and the Covenant Collective based out of Vancouver. Auroch has been very active with live performances across North America and Europe and released 3 full lengths so far and are currently signed to Profound Lore Records.
