  • NECROMACER REC. proudly presents:

    - 2010 is going to be the label's biggest year yet with some of the releases planned. First into the studio in January are BLOOD REVOLT featuring J Read & Vermin of AOA/REVENGE fame with A.A. Nemtheanga from PRIMORDIAL handling vocal duties. This release is certainly going to raise eyebrows and hopefully knock plenty of noses out of joint. Expect an April/May release.
    - Gene Palubicki is busy laying the groundwork for the upcoming APOCALYPSE COMMAND yet to be titled full length. Assisting in the recording will be CJS and VK of DIOCLETIAN infamy. Pummelling, barbaric, violent Black/Death Metal in the vein of the mighty 'INRI' is what is to be expected.
    - Invictus is very proud to announce its partnership with NEGATIVE PLANE who will also enter the studio shortly to record their second opus 'Stained Glass Revelations'. Following on from their incredible 'Et In Saecula Saeculorum' debut album released via Ajna in 2006, 'Stained Glass Revelations' will transcend much of what is considered contemporary Black Metal and elevate a once profound and enigmatic music genre to a whole new level. European dates are being planned and touring possibilities are currently being discussed for later 2010.
    - Canada's TYRANTS BLOOD will shortly see their second full-length album 'Crushing Onward Into Oblivion' unleashed by Invictus. Numerous pressing plant issues have held the album up, which has been paid for in full for months now! A bruising and battering album, amalgamating styles from POSSESSED, SADUS, MORBID ANGEL, DESTRUCTION & MORBID SAINT, 'Crushing…' is a masterpiece of contemporary speed/death/thrash Metal that will tear your head clean off. It will not disappoint!
    - The abomination from the southern hemisphere WITCHRIST will vomit forth its debut full-length album in early 2010. Having sat through the album sans vocals I can assure it will impress upon the hearts of all filth mongers out there what it means to be abyssic, filthy Death fucking Metal. No holds barred. WITCHRIST t shirts are now available from the web store
    - Further to the Doom Cult campaign, DIOCLETIAN are in the process of demoing material for their second full length 'War Of All Against All'. I have been assured by lead cult celebrant Atrociter that the ghastliness, violence and ferocity of 'Doom Cult' will be slain by the upcoming album, engaging a more vicious approach than before. DIOCLETIAN are also set to release some split EP's on various other labels. They are also eyeing invading Europe and the USA in 2010. You have been forewarned!
    - SANGUIS IMPEREM will record their debut, yet to be titled full length for Invictus in early/mid 2010. On the heels of the soon to be released split 12" with NOCTURNAL BLOOD, expect more brutal Death Metal militancy from this US quartet!

The band will enter the Metalsound Studio in early March to begin recording their debut full length album Let Him Die". Expect nine songs of violent, bone crushing, headbanging Thrash Metal in the vein of the 80's titans: Kreator ("Pleasure To Kill" period), Protector, Assassin...

  • SELFMADEGOD news (
    Warsaw-based Daymares have just finished work on its debut album entitled "Can't Get Us All". Drums were tracked at Kokszoman Studio with Maciek Miechowicz (Neuma, ex-Kobong) while the rest of the stuff was recorded at a new born As One Studio with Smok (ex-Post Regiment) and Activator.
    This 11-song album bridges heavy and pissed off hardcore, punk rock and death'n'roll. Raw, yet catchy and energetic, these are tunes that could attract fans of Entombed and Integrity as well as Tragedy or even Damnation AD. Fast, angry and discontent, the anthems are sinister and with a hard groove throughout.
    Whole artwork has been drawn by outstanding Polish artist Rafal Wechterowicz (Ringworm, Integrity, Path of Resistance, Earth Crisis, Soulfly, Guns'n'Roses, Damnation AD).
    Two songs ("The Bigger The Lie" and "I Shit You Not") are available online at the band's myspace site or in MP3 section of Selfmadegod Records website.
    "Can't Get Us All" is due out in first half of May 2007 on Selfmadegod Records. Special edition consisting of digipack version as well as Daymares t-shirt will be available exclusively via Selfmadegod webstore.
    From March 30 until April 5 Polish-based quartet Third Degree will enter its local Studio X in order to record the second full album tentatively entitled "Punk Sugar". The band is going to record 11 grind tunes full of punk dirtiness and metal heaviness referring to the previous recordings. All the vocals duties are taken over by old Third Degree (and current Herman Rarebell) singer Czarny who will replace recently departured vocalist Jungi.
    As usual Szymon Czech (the guitarist) will be responsible for the sound and whole recoding session.
    "Punk Sugar" will hit the streets in summer 2007 via Selfmadegod Records.
    The band first ever full length "Outstay" has been released in 2005. Previous materials including the demo tape as well as couple splits and vinyl releases put out throughout the years have been compiled all together on "Six Years Of 666" CD.
    The 2007 brings 10-years anniversary of Third Degree. Obviously the sophomore release will be the best jubilee present that this Polish grind unit can give themselves.
    The central Poland-based remarkable powerhouse eventually finished work on its new album entitled "Progress". Recorded at PJ Reda Studio follow-up to the 2004's "Seeds Of Cruelty", the record offers 30 minutes of mad, straight-forward grind core, distinctive to no other but them. Their massive and catchy sound breakdowns, immense metallic noises, impetuous shouts and socio-political lyrics all make this quintet the incontestable major representatives of the Polish ground. With the fourth album, Toxic Bonkers prove highest status in nearly 15-year-long career. "Progress" consists of 10 songs and will be released in May 2007 under Selfmadegod Records flag.
    Selfmadegod Records extremely proudly welcomes Hirax, originators of thrash metal crossover music in its family.
    Hirax are back with a five song mini-album. First new recordings in three years. More than any other Hirax record "Assassins of War" takes you on a thrash metal journey and gives you a sound of the band like you have never heard before. The disc includes the devastating hit "Lucifer's Inferno" chosen by Metal Maniacs Magazine as pick of the week. Fans of the band will chew off their own faces to get their skulls on this shit. "Assassins Of War" is certain to enhance Hirax' already stellar reputation.
    Recorded at Shiva Industries in Santa Ana, CA with producer John Haddad, the mini-album has been released in the United States via Hirax' own label Black Devil Records and Deep Six Records in February 6th, 2007. Its European release date is set to March 26th, 2007 via Polish Selfmadegod Records.
    Antigama from Warsaw, Poland and Drugs Of Faith from Virginia, USA team up for a split disc inspired by the Napalm Death / Coalesce split, "In Tongues We Speak". Following in the footsteps of that bi-national split of grind core and hard core, Selfmadegod Records from Poland is poised to release the Antigama / Drugs Of Faith split 3"CD on an eager world audience.
    The three songs representing Antigama's share of the CD are the last ones that the band is issuing before the awaited Relapse debut full-length, "Resonance", which, as Relapse describes on its website, is "certain to drive the listener to frenzied extremes never before experienced." Antigama turns in two original songs packed full of its trademark sound and a cover of a classic Goblin song.
    As for Drugs Of Faith, this power trio delivers three new tracks that offer a taste of what the future full-length on Selfmadegod may sound like. The band has new surprises up its sleeve, having churned out spanking new material for this team up with Antigama that takes its sound further down the road hinted at with the self-titled mini-album, both musically and lyrically.
    Not content to have two bands from the same obvious genres or sharing the same influences go head to head on a split, as often happens, Antigama and Drugs Of Faith's individual sounds play against each other, resulting in a jolt for the listener as the tracks alternate between the two bands on Selfmadegod's latest release. With Antigama awaiting the arrival of its Relapse full-length and Drugs Of Faith supporting the LP version of its mini-album (which features two bonus tracks), the split 3"CD should be a must for fans of either or both groups.
    An old hand at steering grind core in the studio, Szymon Czech (Nyia, Third Degree, Antigama), has mastered this double-barrel disc due on March 26 2007.

  • Heavy Horses Records will release a debut album from Polish MESMERIZED entitled "Coronation". Also the split with Sturmgewehr 666 titled "Declaring Deathreich Decalogue" should be out soon through US Butchered Records. Actually the band is working on new tracks to be recorded this year. Visit:

    ETERNAL LIES - "Spiritual Deception"
    The musical style of ETERNAL LIES is best described as a mixture of traditional Scandinavian Death Metal and the melodies and harmonies that redefined Swedish metal in the late 1990's. Brutal and aggressive drums parts, thundering guitars, combined with precision, speed, and versatility create a brutal sonic assault that will soon establish ETERNAL LIES as one of the leading bands in the sheer endless realm of Swedish metal. With skill, precision, and sheer outbursts of brutality, the debut album "Spiritual Deception" will leave a lasting impression on headbangers and Death Metal fanatics alike. The band was also voted Best New Band in Close-Up, one of Sweden's biggest and most prestigious metal magazines.

Named Number 1 Greek Death Metal band by Metal Hammer/Greece in 2001 - HOMO IRATUS is extreme metal at its best.

Crushing dual guitar runs, blasting drum beats, and a vocalist who screams with brutal fury blend into a demonic atmosphere that will send cold shivers down your spine. The debut album "Mirrored Revelation" was produced by Tommy Tätgren at Abyss Studios/Sweden.
