Decapitated Announce UK/IRE ‘Killing The European Cult 2019 Tour’ Dates

Decapitated are pleased to announce a string of UK/IRE dates as part of their ‘Killing The European Cult 2019’ tour. Accompanying the four piece on the road in February will be death meta outfits Dyscarnate from Horsham, UK and Baest from Aarhus, Denmark.

Decapitated guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka said:
“Last weekend we played Mammothfest UK to a fully packed venue, which makes that night very special. The show was amazing and it was a truly magical night. After the show I was really grateful for all of you who showed up, talked with us and showed us your support. Maybe you don’t know but IT MEANS A LOT!!

Moreover I am more than happy to announce our return to the UK. I am honoured to inform the metal community in UK/IRE that Decapitated will be heading back in February 2019!

Since our debut album “Winds of Creation”, the UK has always been a second home to me. We have never felt like strangers and I simply love to play here, and every time I jump on stage I know I’m in the right place. I have so many memories from old times and many friends who support us and are ready to help. Maybe it sounds a little bit sentimental but after the hard times we had last year, I appreciate everything 1000 times more than ever.

That’s why I am super excited to also have Dyscarnate and Baest on our UK/IRE tour. Dyscarnate is a well-known band especially in UK and they just crush live! Baest has THIS energy you want to see in every band during a show. Both bands are amazing, have great music to share with people and I am sure they will dominate the metal scene faster than we think.

This line-up will destroy everything on it’s way. Join us in February for “Killing The European Cult!”

‘Killing The European Cult 2019’ UK/IRE tour dates are as follows:

11.02 BRIGHTON – CONCORDE
12.02 MANCHESTER- ACADEMY 3
13.02 GLASGOW – CLASSIC GRAND
14.02 BELFAST- VOODOO
15.02 DUBLIN – VOODOO LOUNGE

Rotting Christ Enters The Studio To Work On New Album

An album that will be inspired by the intense artistic worries which arose during those two years on the road, and which seems to be our darkest and most mystical influences yet in our career! Thanks for the support all those years, we will not disappoint you!”

Mumakil Calls It Quits After A Long Period of Inactivity

After a long stint of inactivity, Swiss grindcore band Mumakil has started off the new year by announcing their disbandment:

Hello there. Wish we could start the year with better news but unfortunately it is time to announce that the beast is no more. MUMAKIL IS DEAD. Let’s just say that the momentum is long gone. We have all moved on to new horizons. Thank you for showing up over all those years, thank you for the support, the headbangs and of course the hangovers! You are family. Grind on.

While promising new music in 2016, the band’s last release was “Flies Will Starve,” issued by Relapse Records back in 2013.

Sar Isatum Signs w/ Exalted Woe Records & Death Portal Studio For Debut Album

Having unleashed their debut album “Shurpu” digitally on November 17th, Denver symphonic black metal trio Sar Isatum announce their signing to both Exalted Woe Records and Death Portal Studio for distribution of the physical CD release of the full length on December 22nd.

Check out now “Shurpu” in its entirety below.

“We are honored to announce that we made a distribution deal for the first print of our album with Death Portal Studio and Exalted Woe Records. They have a lot of great bands on each of their rosters and we thank Zach and Anthony for their support and contributions to this release.” comments drummer JP Dalkhu.

Creating music for themselves, not copying what has come before, fans of various styles of black metal will find much to appreciate in Sar Isatum’s debut album “Shurpu”. The release features seven blistering tracks that are ethereal, nefarious, abhorrent, and cryptic. The concept of the album is a loose collection of stories told from an omnipotent source to establish Sar Isatum, the Lord’s of fire perception of the world and thusly announce their entry into it through “Shurpu” a purification by fire.

“The album is a visceral piece of music, tight aggressive black metal that has punishingly brutal moments. The haunting keys give space to the musical assault and provide atmosphere with vocals that invoke a spirit of war.” adds Dalkhu.

Spawn Of Possession Calls It Quits

Swedish death metal group Spawn Of Possession has officially called it quits, issuing this brief message to fans:

“Last week we decided to put SoP to rest due to several problems, mostly because we now realize we don’t have the time to either finish a beast like a new album properly or do anything else with SoP for a long time.

“So the band has pretty much just faded away at this point. Anyway! We are very thankful for all the support we had through the years! Cheers!”

The group’s last major release was the “Incurso” full-length album via Relapse Records back in 2012.
