Hickory, N.C. sci-fi metal band Rapheumets Well will release next full-length album “Enders Door” via Test Your Metal Records on May 26th.

“‘Ghost Walkers Exodus’ is a metal opera in itself. It is both a tactic and the experience of traversing the odd and hellish lands they are trapped in.

Terrifier Makes New Album “Weapons Of Thrash Destruction” Available For Streaming

Terrifier’s new album “Weapons of Thrash Destruction” is now available today via Test Your Metal Records and follows 2013 EP “Metal or Death.”

Incorporating jackhammer drums, bulldozing bass-lines, a twin-lead attack that leaves posers pulped in its wake, and vocals that can level mountains, Terrifier’s motto could well be :thrashing is our business…and business is good.”

Vocalist / bassis Chase Thibodeau comments: “We formed this band because we love thrash and play what we think sounds cool…our music is fast, technical, heavy and melodic and shredding. We think people will enjoy this album and use our music to get pumped up for whatever life throws at them. It would be our honour to inspire others into thrash metal…the world needs more thrash!”

1. Reanimator (5:24)
2. Deceiver (5:15)
3. Nuclear Demolisher (4:26)
4. Violent Reprisal (4:17)
5. Skitzoid Embolism (4:08)
6. Drunk as Fuck (4:12)
7. Bestial Tyranny (6:13)
8. Riders of Doom (1:40)
9. Sect of the Serpent (6:44)
