HPGD Productions Announce SEPTORY, SADISTIK FOREST Split Album

Horror Pain Gore Death ProductionsHorror Pain Gore Death Productions will release a split CD between Russia’s premiere Death Metal band SEPTORY and Finland’s own SADISTIK FOREST (featuring Markus Makkonen of HOODED MENACE). This CD is part of the HPGD “Price Slasher” series and will be released on June 25.

Below is the official description:

Horror Pain Gore Death Productions brings together two of the sickest Death Metal bands in the world for a killer split! Septory are the fastest rising Death Metal band in Russia at the moment. Featuring members of cult Death Metal act Bestial Deform and Black Metal horde Khashm, their brand of traditional yet innovative Death Metal is highly recommended for fans of Deicide, Vader and early Cannibal Corpse. After releasing the Rotting Humanity EP in 2006, Septory put out their crushing debut World War Chaos in 2008, followed by the destructive Seductive Art Profane in 2011. Their strong HPGD debut features a deadly collection of new anthems of evil, old school Death Metal and includes a cover of Bestial Deform’s Three Days Since Dead. An absolutely crushing offering!

Finland’s Sadistik Forest is Death Metal four piece from Oulu and includes Markus Makkonen of Hooded Menace on vocals/bass. The band has often been compared to such names as Bolt Thrower, Morbid Angel, Terrorizer, Vader, Napalm Death, Sodom and early Sepultura. Relentless, punishing and unforgiving, their aural assault is a concoction of early 90’s Death Metal, Grindcore and 80’s Thrash. After releasing their self-titled debut in 2010, SF released the brutal Death, Doom, Radiation in 2012. This recording features three brand new originals and a cover version of the Seth Putnam‘s/Thor’s collabaration Throwing Cars at People (On Coke With Thor). This is the 4th entry in the Price Slasher series that delivers high quality sickness at the lowest price possible. Prepare to headbang!

After a bloody successful maiden voyage in 2012, Decibel is doubling down on veteran star power for their second annual national tour. This spring, the plague spreads as Decibel brings you three living legends of death metal and grindcore: the preeminent gore institution Cannibal Corpse; rabble-rousing U.K. grind icons Napalm Death, and NYDM stalwarts Immolation.

Cannibal Corpse released a box set to commemorate their 25th anniversary: Dead Human Collection: 25 Years of Death Metal. The box contains: all 12 full length studio albums in a 12 CD foldout case with new artwork, Torturing and Eviscerating LIVE on CD and LP Picture Disc recorded in Tampa, FL 2010/Milwaukee, WI 2012, PLUS: NEW EXCLUSIVE images by VINCE LOCKE, 12″ X 12″ graphic prints of all 13 original album covers, and a 2013 Cannibal Corpse Calendar.

“This is a lineup of bands that have been a consistent part of the death/grind scene for decades, and we’re proud to be a part of it. It will be a legendary night for extreme music.”

“Do you remember the Blue Grape Merchandise catalog?” asks Decibel Editor in Chief Albert Mudrian.

“How about the Hard N’ Heavy Grindcore Video Special? Or purchasing CDs in longboxes? Then this year’s Decibel Magazine Tour was aseembled for you. See you on the campaign trail for musical destruction.”

ARCHSPIRE Release New Studio Footage

Technical death metal force ARCHSPIRE released new studio footage of the members recording their forthcoming Season of Mist debut. The footage can be found here.

ARCHSPIRE (Tobi Morelli – guitar, Spencer Prewett – drums, Dean Lamb – guitar, Jaron Evil – bass & vocals, Oli Peters – vocals)

Recently, ARCHSPIRE was named as a regional opening act for this year’s upcoming Decibel Magazine Tour. On May 21, the band will play alongside CANNIBAL CORSPE, NAPALM DEATH, IMMOLATION, and newly signed label mates, BEYOND CREATION at the Vancouver Commodore.

ARCHSPIRE has taken the world-wide extreme metal scene by storm with their unique blend of blindingly fast, hyper aggressive technical death metal. The five piece are a national headliner in their home country of Canada, and have toured Europe supporting DECAPITATED, ABORTED, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, and more. The band has also supported HATE ETERNAL, NAPALM DEATH, PIG DESTROYER, ORIGIN, and many more throughout western Europe.

“If you are asking, ‘Is there something new to do in Death Metal?’ ARCHSPIRE is the answer” – technicaldeathmetal.com

“This is a truly eye-popping convulsion of tech-death, with schizophrenic rhythms, astounding technical riffing and drumwork, and tiny threads of reappearing melody that stitch the songs together into cohesive wholes. And I’m not sure I’ve ever heard a death-metal vocalist bark out the lyrics faster than ARCHSPIRE’s . . . . This is most definitely a band to keep your eyes on; you will hear more about them” – No Clean Singing

“ARCHSPIRE have released a gem. It’s definitely technical death, and it adroitly blends elements of various tech death bands together. The rhythm guitar work varies from choppy and percussive to fluid and melodic. The blasting and double bass work are absurdly fast, but remain fluent and rhythmic rather than wooden or jittery. The hard to soft musical transitions are as natural as I’ve ever heard in this genre” – InvisibleOranges.com 

“The pick-me-up comes in the form of ARCHSPIRE, a gang of happy-looking Canadians who might have been widely unknown to most present before this performance, but surely no longer. With a technical proficiency bordering on OMFG levels, they still achieve what lacks in a lot of other bands like this: the feat of actually writing songs. What’s more, they noticeably enjoy what they do, so smiles are abundant even if face-peeling technical death metal about alien monoliths and planets being devoured is going on” – Terrorizer

About:

Upon being assembled in 2003 by founding members Martin Samson and Stef Jomphe in Gatineau, Insurrection has been growing, modulating and mutating into a machine of an aural onslaught. Assaulting witnesses in both languages of French and English, Insurrection has blended its calculated technicality to create a signature mixture of merciless death metal that has emerged from the prominent Canadian scene.

Shortly after their 2009 debut release Prologue, giving true life to their monstrosity, the formation launched their second release 2010’s Fracture, a dark prophecy of unforgivable times and a brutal soundtrack to the fall of man. It pushed the limits with every outing, creating Insurrection to become more than the sum of its parts, but a merciless abomination.

Now the band is gearing up for their follow up Prototype to push yet another brutal assault and tour cities across Canada to convert the unwitting to their legion.

Death metal needs fresh blood and let’s hope this album inspires some youngsters to steer away from the crap and come back to serious business”Metal Made in Canada

“This 5-piece monstrosity has struck again with precision, aggression and near perfection! INSURRECTION delivers a one of a kind album – solid and crushing from beginning to end”The Ottawa Epitaph
