Gargoyle Releasing “Reborn In Blasphemy” On Cassette

Shadow Kingdom Records has set October 31st as the international release date for Gargoyle’s debut EP, “Reborn in Blasphemy,” on cassette tape.

Self-released earlier this year in very limited quantities, “Reborn in Blasphemy” introduced these ghoulish Italian doomlords to the international underground, but not widely enough, in Shadow Kingdom’s opinion!

Despite the EP’s title cribbed from an old Dismember song, “Reborn in Blasphemy” is definitely NOT death metal; rather, it is mildewed and catacombed DOOM in the grand Italian tradition, sounding as old as time itself.

1. The Lord Of The Tentaculars
2. The Highlander
3. Lady Dead
4. The Whisperer In The Darkness (cassette-only bonus track)
