TAU CROSS (uk/us/can) – Relapse Records
Tau Cross is an underground punk/metal union featuring bassist and vocalist Rob “The Baron” Miller (Amebix), Michel “Away” Langevin (Voivod) on drums and Jon Misery (Misery) and Andy Lefton (War//Plague) on guitars. Formed in 2013 across two continents and three countries, TAU CROSS is the natural evolution of Miller’s work in Amebix. Tribal rhythms, searing guitars and Miller’s huge booming voice are all set to an apocalyptic atmosphere that will satisfy the crustiest punks as well as the blackest metallers. Tau Cross refuses to be pigeonholed, affirming the respective legacies of its members – the band delves into the realms of gothic rock, industrial, early doom, post-punk, and prog rock alongside its crust & thrash roots.
The band’s self-titled debut was recorded in 2014 and released in May 2015, and immediately found widespread critical reception. Cvlt Nation called Tau Cross “a thundering sonic journey, conjuring magic and darkness from the listener’s soul,” and Metal Injection stated, “Tau Cross has absolutely killed it and we are all better off for having this album in our collective lives,” while Invisible Oranges described the record as “never losing a penchant for strong song writing” and warned listeners to “ignore it at your own peril.” Tau Cross may have set a high standard for its first record, but if the band has proven anything so far, it’s that they are incredibly skilled at meeting – and exceeding – expectations.
Tau Cross will be releasing the 2nd full length album “Pillar of Fire” in the summer of 2017 on Relapse records and will be performing some of the songs of that album on the forthcoming tour.
Still looking for shows for the forthcoming “The Reek of Rotting Flesh” tour w/ FUNEBRARUM (us) + PHRENELITH (dk) 15th May – 2nd June 2017!

It makes a difference in effort and time, either to dig six feet deep or to build Necropolis.
VENENUM decided for the latter… and it was worth every fucking second of wait. 5 years after the successful s/t minialbum, VENENUM strike with their debut full-length entitled “Trance of Death”. The album presents VENENUM on a new level of brutality and contains new & never before heard layers of darkness. The six new compositions + introduction-theme are a grand melt of unique visions and unaltered tradition, weaved & merged into a complex unit of sacred horror. “Trance of Death” is far away from being another onedimensional tribute to the grave… it is reverence & praise, a hymn to the impending end of all things. Twisting & turning, up & down, back & forth, entangling songs and parts evolve in a constant flow.”Trance of Death” is the most serious approach towards creating a soundtrack to Death.
Join a 50 min ride through the deepest depths of ripping death, the wildest wastelands of abominable black and the darkest peaks of sinister rock. or to be plain: on the A-side they kill, on the B-side you die.
High-class songwriting skills, supremely possessed execution & performance. and a top-notch production will catapult this album to one of the most signifying & relevant releases in 2017.
Both immensely beautiful and intensely terrifying, this release will easily open the doors to the death metal pantheon for VENENUM.
REVEAL, Uppsala´s masters of terrifying insanity finally are back… back to kill decency, to raise middlefingers and to burn bridges. Say goodbye to terms like „consensus“ and „conformity“ and expect the unexpected instead. Neither fish but foul, `Flystrips´ comes like a schizo siamese twin between old THORNS and THE GERMS. While their outstanding, debutalbum `Nocturne Eyes and Teeth´ stirred the scene with a grand black death chaos which however followed certain rules and stylistic apprehension, `Flystrips´ now chokes every understandment of how this music should sound and should be played. REVEAL step on unique paths and will leave traces. Related to bands alike NO FUTURE, IN SOLITUDE and GRAVMASKIN they share members with, their visions appear bizzare, grotesque, ugly and sardonic.
Killtown Bookings is excited to present two of the best contemporary Scandinavian death metal bands for a mini tour causing “Savage Mutiny across Scandinavia”!

Below is the press release from Earsplit compound;
San Francisco death metal horde VASTUM has declared an impending late Winter invasion of Europe, announcing a string of tour dates surrounding their performance at The Netherlands Death Fest. The announcement is joined by news of label home 20 Buck Spin’s plans to reissue the band’s primal debut album, Carnal Law, which has been out-of-print on vinyl since its 2011 release.
VASTUM’s 2015 LP, Hole Below, set a horrifying new precedent for punishing but cerebral US death metal that echoed throughout the underground. While generally acknowledged to be the band’s defining statement thus far, the earlier albums Carnal Law and Patricidal Lust are, in and of themselves, a testament to the bands mental and physical prowess from the very beginning.
Carnal Law, VASTUM’s formidable debut was issued originally on vinyl by Deific Mourning / Contagion Releasing (CD on 20 Buck Spin) in 2011 in a one-time limited version of 500 copies. Those disappeared and the album has since been unavailable on vinyl for the last four or five years. Until now that is as 20 Buck Spin presents Carnal Law on vinyl once again, with a freshly punishing remaster courtesy of Brad Boatwright at Audiosiege.
Both the progressive and regressive elements that made Hole Below such a heralded monument of death metal were evident already on Carnal Law. Tasteful, recognizable lead work not unlike the virtuosity one notes in mid-period Death or Carcass appears throughout but never overwhelms the fetid odor of vice at the album’s core. Like the paramount albums of the genre, Carnal Law makes its point quickly and resolutely, with viciousness and intent, with the now well-known dual vocal onslaught of Dan and Leila presiding over it all.
20 Buck Spin will reintroduce the world to Carnal Law on March 10th, with a limited gold vinyl variant available exclusively to US record stores via Revolver USA, and a limited multi-color variant to be available directly from 20 Buck Spin. A repress of VASTUM’s Hole Below will surface in February, including a new limited multi-color variant available directly from 20 Buck Spin. Preorders for both LPs will be posted in the coming days.
Directly in conjunction with the Carnal Law reissue, VASTUM will raid Europe on the Eight Days Of Death, a run of tour dates surrounding their performance at The Netherlands Death Fest with the likes of Gorgoroth, Bloodbath, Candlemass, Triptykon, Discharge, Repulsion, Terrorizer, Nifelheim, and countless others. The tour, handled by Killtown Bookings, also includes shows in Stockholm, Wroclaw, Zwickau, Antwerpen, Göttingen, Hamburg, and Copenhagen.
Tour announcement: BLOOD INCANTATION (us) and CRUCIAMENTUM (uk) “Interdimensional passages through Europe” 17th – 31st March 2017!
Killtown Bookings is extremely proud to present the final routing for “Interdimensional passages through Europe” w/ BLOOD INCANTATION (us) and CRUCIAMENTUM (uk)!
The tour will be the first performances for Blood Incantation in Europe! They will be accompanied by the great UK outfit Cruciamentum for the 15 date rampage across Europe from 17th – 31st March 2017!
Blood Incantation´s debut album, “Starspawn”, was released in 2016 through Dark Descent Records and received critical acclaim from music publications such as Decibel and Stereogum.
The band’s sound features “a psychedelic take on classic death metal” and melds “technicality with tectonic riffs, cavernous vocals and eerie, Dodsengel-like moments of caustic stillness.” On the band’s style, Stereogum’s Aaron Lariviere wrote: “Screaming leads cut a swath through the churn of atonal rhythm guitars, blending the bright melodicism of late-period Death with the alien tones of Morbid Angel circa Domination.”
Cruciamentum signed to Profound Lore Records (Canada) in 2015 for the release of their debut full length “Charnel Passages”. The band followed up the album release with a European tour with Corpsessed (fin) and appearances at Netherlands Deathfest and Armageddon Descends III in Lithuania.
Cruciamentum are currently writing their second album which will be recorded mid/late 2017, also to be released on Profound Lore Records.
