New EP “Victory Is Mine” To Be Released By Lucifer’s Hammer

Shadow Kingdom Records is proud to present Lucifer’s Hammer’s brand new EP “Victory is Mine” on December 15th.

Aptly titled, “Victory is Mine” follows soon after the widespread critical acclaim afforded last year’s “Beyond the Omens” debut full-length, further proving that this Chilean heavy metal force simply cannot be stopped! But here, on “Victory is Mine,” Lucifer’s Hammer shows more sides to the enviable arsenal and go down a darker path.

Where “Beyond the Omens” burst forth with a brightness that could’ve come from radio metal circa 1984, “Victory is Mine” explodes with an immediacy that’s moodier and more epic. Still well within the realm of classic, post-NWoBHM heavy metal, here Lucifer’s Hammer delivers four winding epics that alternately pulse with steely passion and drift like lingering fog.

The track listing is:

1. The Valley of the Shadow of Death
2. Thousand Nights (O.O.T.S.)
3. Warriors of the Storm
4. The Destroyer

Hells Headbangers Releases Free Digital Compilation

Hells Headbangers is presenting a new label compilation, which can be heard below and is available at Bandcamp here.

Available now digitally, the compilation will be a free CD handout for orders through the Hells Headbangers webstore and at the label’s Maryland Death Fest merch table. A double-LP vinyl pressing is forthcoming during the summer.

Featuring brand-new/upcoming songs from Midnight, Children of Technology, Gouge, Barbatos, Nunslaughter, Cemetery Lust, and Sacrocurse among others, the compilation is the label’s seventh to date. Its cover art, hand-drawn by Antichrist Kramer (Inquisition, Vasaeleth, et al), is an homage to Black Sabbath’s “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath,” but the entire layout as a whole incorporates minor aesthetic elements from the first six Black Sabbath albums.
