Sadistic Intent is a Death Metal horde hailing from Los Angeles, CA which was formed in the fall of 1987. Taking influence by the original Death/Black Metal groups such as Slayer, Possessed, Dark Angel, Destruction, Venom, Sodom, Celtic Frost and so forth.

At a time when Death/Black Metal was no longer popular as it was in the mid 80’s, Sadistic Intent were one of the handful of groups in the United States raising the flag of Death Metal! After a couple of rehearsal tapes and demos the band earned a name for itself in the international underground scene and decided to sign with Wild Rags Records. In 1990 the “Impending Doom” EP was released and a few tours followed in Mexico as well as the States! In 1991 Sadistic Intent self released a 7” EP titled “A Calm before the Storm” and split shortly after.

In 1994 the Cortez brothers brought back Sadistic Intent from the dead with the properly titled “Resurrection” MCD the first recording in which Bassist Bay Cortez would also handle the vocal. The band kept busy on the live West Coast circuit especially in Los Angeles now being recognized as a headlining act upon the local scene. In 1995 Sadistic Intent released a demo titled “Ancient Black Earth” reprinted in 1996 the same year they were featured on a successful tribute to Celtic Frost.

In 1998 the band released a split 7” EP with a German Black Metal group called Ungod through Merciless Records (Ger.). In 1999 Sadistic Intent recorded a song for a tribute to California’s legendary Possessed on which Jeff Becerra, original Possessed front man is actually featured on vocals! That same year the band recorded for yet another Dwell Records tribute, this time for L.A.’s own Slayer which literally introduced Sadistic Intent to thousands of “slaytanic” fans!

In 2007, Jeff Becerra would eventually ask the Cortez brothers to help reform Possessed. Sadistic Intent would tour as Possessed with Jeff Becerra on vocals from 2007 to 2010.In 2014 Sadistic Intent released Reawakening Horrid Thoughts, a 12-inch laser-etched EP through Iron Pegasus Records.

Throughout the years, Sadistic Intent has toured in various countries around the world such as Norway, Brazil, Finland, Mexico, Germany, Chile, Holland, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Greece, Belgium, Australia, Singapore, and USA.

DEHUMAN (be) – Kaotoxin records

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcfK1fcTddw
DEHUMAN was aborted with success in October 2006 into the filth of Brussels. In 2011, a second intervention perverted once and for all the creature composed of the following deformed limbs: Andrea V. (bass / vocals); Laye L. (Drums); Rafael S. (Guitars)and Mathias B. (Guitars)

The first regurgitation “Black Throne of all Creation” appeared in 2012 released on compact disc by Kaotoxin and on black LP record by Tanquam Aegri Somnia, followed by a French and European tour with AGATHOCLES, a European and Balkan tour invited by MASTER, seventy shows spitted at the face of what remains of REAL violent and brutal death-metal amateurs still alive in this putrid abyss, headlining or supporting BELPHEGOR, ABORTED, ENTHRONED, POSSESSED, SEVERE TORTURE, MACABRE, UNLEASHED, DEATH (to all), LENG T’CHE, DEAD CONGREGATION.

The next noise deflagration “Graveyard of Eden” produced by Phorgath of Enthroned and Mixed by F. Castes, Studio Sainte Marthe, Paris (Arkhon Infaustus, Kickback) was released in March 2015 through KAOTOXIN records. Since then DEHUMAN headlined a south European tour in April 2015 and joined forces with VITAL REMAINS for the “Anthology of Evil” 2015 European summer tour. DEHUMAN hit the road once more with JIG AI for 3 exclusive shows and festival in the UK, Netherlands and France followed by another tour in France and Spain. In November 2015, DEHUMAN flew over in Brazil, headlining a local package and sharing the stage with bands such as VADER, ONSLAUGHT. March on with the legions of Death!!!

GOREPHILIA (fin)
https://www.facebook.com/pg/gorephilia
https://gorephilia.bandcamp.com/
Finnish death metal band founded in the late summer of 2006. At that time Gorephilia, still known as GoretexX was formed by Jukka, Tami, Henri and Lauri. Early in the year 2007 the first demo “Rotting”. Later that year Roope took over Lauri’s place on drums and the current name was taken to use. Some gigs followed and one of them resulted in a live demo “Ritual Exhumation” that put together all of the “GoretexX songs”. An attempt was made to capture the three new songs in studio, but due to lack of a rehearsal place a satisfying result wasn’t achieved.

After almost a year of stasis we found ourselves a place to rehearse and brought in Valtteri as a second guitarist. Unfortunately in early 2009 3 of 5 members begun their compulsory military service which slowed down the pace of training new material. Valtteri was then replaced with Jussi.

In 2010 the very first actual Gorephilia demo “In Death” is released to shock the foundations of Death Metal. More is to come.

PHRENELITH (dk) – Extremely Rotten Productions
www.phrenelith.bandcamp.com
Phrenelith was formed sometime in the year 2014 and was rehearsal dwelling for most of the year, before recording their two track debut demo in over a time span of 3 months and then releasing it 3 months later through Extremely Rotten Productions in March 2015. Not long after the recruited their bassist and started playing gigs and a 2nd demo entitled “Veiled Verses” was recorded as a 4 piece and released later in 2015. The band has so far played a few shows in Denmark, Germany and Poland and are currently finishing their debut album which are set to be recorded during the spring of 2016.
Phrenelith plays a dark, filthy, low tuned, blackened, raw brand of death metal spiked with dual death grunts, not for anyone craving clarity or pleasant production values. Always with the memorable riffs in focus and drums varying from steamrolling slowness to meat grinding speed, Phrenelith aims at making your ears and eyes bleed.

UNDERGANG (dk) – Dark Decent Records / Me Saco Un Ojo Records
https://www.facebook.com/undergangktdm
https://undergang.bandcamp.com/
Undergang was spawned from the sewers of the Copenhagen underground in the late spring of 2008, with the intention to bring back rot and putridity to the Death Metal scene. Undergang deliver ultra heavy Death Metal in the best traditions of Suffocaton(old), Rottrevore, (old) Carcass, Autopsy and such like with their own twist and a huge splash of sludge. The sound is chokingly fat, low and murky, yet all instruments are quite clear, vocals are used more like an instrument too, low gurgling growls perfectly add to the deadly atmosphere.

BASTARD GRAVE (swe) – Pulverised Records

https://www.facebook.com/BastardGrave
https://bastardgrave.bandcamp.com/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d45HscjPRao
Bastard Grave is a death metal band that likes to keep it primitive and raw. Born from the sewers of underground Hellsingborg/Sweden in 2012 AD, and after releasing only one demo cassette, “Unmarked Grave”, they got signed to Pulverised Records (Morbus Chron, Vampire, Tribulation etc) of Singapore. At the end of 2015 their debut album “What lies beyond” was unleashed upon the world. It’s an album firmly rooted in the old school death metal sound of their home country Sweden, but also with taking influences from Autopsy and Bolt Thrower.

CRYPTIC BROOD (de)
https://www.facebook.com/CrypticBrood/
http://crypticbrood.bandcamp.com/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9gmn4OOJc4
Because of their lust for rancid and rotten death metal, three maniacs from Wolfsburg/Germany started the band CRYPTIC BROOD at the beginning of the year 2013. The ‘Morbid Rite’ Demo-Cassette as first physical sign of life was self-released in October of that year and suffered several rereleases by different labels in the following months. With this extraction of doomed out death metal, their morbid live rituals and a couple of split-releases, CRYPTIC BROOD spread their plague within the filthy realm of the death metal underground and joined forces with Xtreem Music. Backed with this Spanish cult-label, the “Wormhead”-EP crept out of their tomb and will be followed by the first full-length in early 2017. ROTTEN METAL OF DEATH!

TAPHOS (KBH)
Spawned from purulence in late 2015 with the intent to create chaotic and devestated hymns for the depraved masses. A handful concerts have been played on local soil, and a debut 4-track cassette will soon be released. Hear our chants…

RANGER (fin) – Spinefarm Records
https://www.facebook.com/rangerheavymetal/
https://rangerheavymetal.bandcamp.com/
Helsinki speed metal quartet Ranger’s 2013 EP Knights of Darkness captured all the classic, leather-clad menace of the pre-thrash early ’80s with a demonic grin on its face. Few younger bands capture just how fucking fun heavy metal can be to listen to, but Ranger take riffs and speed very seriously and little else, which appeals to those wanting a rush without the seriousness of other, more extreme genres. On their full-length debut, Where Evil Dwells, they retain much of what made Knights memorable, while tweaking their sound just slightly to accommodate a longer running time.

With two new guitarists, Ville Valtonen and Mikael Haavisto, Ranger throw in some classic NWOBHM licks in addition to the mix ofCanadian and German speed metal they’ve cut their teeth on thus far. The melodic leads and anthemic vocals of “Dead Zone”, for example, could be from Angel Witch or a pre-Bruce Dickinson Iron Maiden cut. Where Knights proved just how relentless they can be,Evil reveals an ear for catchiness too. “Phantom Soldier” features some of their most gripping riffs, especially the bridge breakdown. You can easily imagine singer Dimi Pontiac (who also plays bass) whipping a crowd into a fist-pumping frenzy over it.

With a need to make a strong debut statement comes sharper production, and Pontiac’s vocals benefit the most. His voice is much higher in the mix, which greater outlines his snarl. His high screams are still in evidence, but Evil’s production illuminates his normal singing voice, which has a snarky bite not unlike a less nasally Dave Mustaine. The attitude in his vocals carries as much weight as their riffs, and allows Ranger to harness the most adrenaline from their songs.

Ranger take one big risk on Evil—the ten-minute title track, just under half the length of Knights. Is it their “At War With Satan”, Venom’s infamous 20-minute orgy of Satanic excess? Not quite: It sounds like they took two Ranger songs and just smashed them together. The only issue with “Evil” is its placement; it should close out the album, not the single “Storm of Power”. “Storm of Power” is Ranger at their most concentrated and reckless, a blitz of light-speed solos, breakneck rhythms, and gang vocals, but it would work better placed earlier, as a way to build towards “Evil”. But Metallica worked in a similar approach on Master of Puppets by placing the grand instrumental “Orion” before the apocalyptic rager “Damage, Inc.”. Metallica, however, did things most bands couldn’t, then or now. It’s a minor sequencing issue, though, and on the whole, Evil is not just an amped-up take on a classic form, but an exhilarating testament to how and why metal continues to gain younger converts.

ENCYRCLE (dk) – Unspeakable Axe Records / Dark Decent Records
https://www.facebook.com/encyrcle
https://unspeakableaxerecords.bandcamp.com/album/encyrcle
The sonic vessel ENCYRCLE appeared on the map in 2015 with a widely praised eponymous debut album, by many referred to as ‘nocturnal speed metal’. While speed is characteristic of a vessel, it is not essence. ENCYRCLE is the story of the journey into the Other, nightly Sister and Source, where all things are lost and gained in an otherworldly ecstasy. Their stage becomes a meeting ground for dissolution and dawn, violence and melancholy. Thus, in the shamanic vein of every potent rock ‘n’ roll artist of past, ENCYRCLE play the night’s heavy metal. Rock solid in aim, yet serpent-like in method, the troupe will return to land once more in the fall of 2016 with a three-track EP, foreshadowing their most daring adventure yet, their follow-up album, come 2017

And some nice words from reviewers:
“Dorre create a colossally heavy doom abyss into which they try to suck everything – your ears, daylight, reality – to hypnotising effect.” – Review of Dorre’s show with Serpent Venom and The Earls of Mars in London. Nick Ruskell, Kerrang! magazine.

“You need to hear One Collapsed At The Altar now as it’s a stunning record.” – Review of Dorre, One Collapsed at the Altar. Steve Howe, Outlaws of the Sun.

“You may think that you will be haunted by the sound of that voice… And yet, when the music’s over, you find yourself cleansed, in a way; crushed, yet surprisingly lighter.” – Review of Bethmoora’s demo by Tabacaria.

ANGELCORPSE (us) – Osmose Productions
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsMJz_J1YWg
http://www.osmoseproductions-label.com/bands/angel-corpse/
Angelcorpse is a legendary U.S Death Metal band. Known as one of the most important of the U.S extreme metal scene and as one of the most brutal metal bands on the planet, nowdays many bands count them as one of the most important influenses in extreme black/death-metal.

Coming back for a number of especially picked gigs in 2016, you now have the chance to get the band much cheaper, since a booker in Stockholm will be paying for the tickets to/from the U.S. So only their fee and flight tickets from Copenhagen to Stockholm is needed. I would think that extreme metal lovers from Germany will take the train to Copenhagen for sure.

DEGIAL (swe) – Sepulchral Voice Records
www.facebook.com/pages/Degial/176386435721954
www.degialofficial.com
DEGIAL from Uppsala, Sweden is an upcoming blackened death metal outfit part of the infamous “Uppsala Metal ov Death” club. Their 2012 debut album “Death´s striking Wings” in 2012 on Sepulchral Voice Records (Necros Christos, Grave Miasma) established them in the metal underground. Now in 2015 they have released the follow up; “Savage Mutany” also on Sepulchral Voice. Their music can best be described as dark occult blackened Death Metal with lyrical themes about death, chaos and blasphemy.

VORUM (fin) – Sepulchral Voice Records
