New EP “Cultus In Tenebris” Announced By Ctulu

German sea storming extreme metal act Ctulu will release the 4-Track EP entitled “Cultus in Tenebris” on October 6th in the U.S. via Static Tension Recordings.

“Cultus in Tenebris” was recorded at the same time as the 2016 selt-titled album. Ctulu wanted to reduce both these works to minimum duration while containing maximum quality. The band has never before filtered so many ideas that didn’t make it on the final release.

“Cultus in Tenebris” is a concept EP that tries to catch the spirit of Necronomicon rituals. It is a gathering of exotic weirdness, of seeing in the dark, of praising the old, capricious, mad and wild gods. This is Ctulu’s first genuine U.S. release.

More information on the EP is expected soon. The artwork can be seen here:

Pyrrhon Unveils New Album “What Passes For Survival”

Continuing to shapeshift while using unorthodox songwriting techniques that border on the incomprehensible, avant-garde extreme metal quartet Pyrrhon returns with “What Passes For Survival,” due out August 8th.

Throatruiner Records comments: “Dense, volatile, and drenched in manic ferocity, ‘What Passes For Survival’ is an aural challenge that refuses to adhere to genre conventions, merging strategic orchestrated bursts of death metal chaos with expanses of unhinged improvisation.

“The latest stage of Pyrrhon’s metamorphosis is one that demands repeated audio submersion from the listener, and satisfies those craving sonic extremity that pushes limits. Recorded live, mixed, and mastered by Colin Marston at The Thousand Caves, the album features artwork by Caroline Harrison.”

“Innocence” will be released worldwide on June 16th, 2017 digitally and physically. Check out a music video for album track “Dying” below.

Holocausto Canibal Premieres Full-Album Stream Of New Release “Catalepsia Necrótica: Gonorreia Visceral Reanimada”

Portuguese death/grind band Holocausto Canibal decided to re-interpret and re-record the songs of its first demo “oPus I” and its debut album “Gonorreia Visceral”, and the result in this 20th year of the band’s existence is this new album titled “Catalepsia Necrótica: Gonorreia Visceral Reanimada” streaming below.

Check it out in its entirety below.

Comments bassist and founding member Z. Pedro on this new release:

“This re-recording and reinterpretation with today’s line-up and technologies is something that we couldn’t even think about when this first songs were wrote. If someone told us back then that someday we would be touring America or Europe, like we did in the last few years, we would probably laugh ourselves off, but the reality is that we’re still here, trying to bring you the feeling of the 90’s Oporto extreme metal scene that we all love and grew with and playing the same style we choose in our first rehearsal ever: Death Gore Grind.”
