CONSUMMATION SEIZE POWER THROUGH A METICULOUS MANIFESTATION OF WILL in massive new interview with founder Craig + + + + + + + + + + + Black/death philosophers Consummation proliferated with vigour and malice from Brisbane, Australia in 2012 with their self-titled demo, followed up with several live appearances and then sporadically vanished into obscurity. This silence was not unproductive however, with the band continuing to solidify their craft in solitude … + + + + + + + + + + + #consummation #deathmetal #blackmetal #australian #antichrist #Nietzsche #profoundlorerecords Profound Lore Records

Hail Profanatica forever. - - - Blasphemous black metal legion Profanatica are currently in the throes of controversy due to their sacrilegious and sexual lyrical content, making them the latest victims of censorship. The cassette manufacturer, who was slated to produce that format of the band's 'Rotting Incarnation of God' have turned the job away, citing concerns with the band's lyrics. Season of Mist has since found a new manufacturer for the tapes. - PROFANATICA comment, "Right now, we’re operating at about 45% blasphemy. People are getting offended already, and we barley scratched the surface.”

CEREBRAL ROT EXHUMES ANCIENT GRAVES AND DIVES IN HEAD-FIRST ON “ODIOUS DESCENT INTO DECAY” + + + + + + + Dredging up forgotten sounds like exhuming a corpse already twice rotten, Odious Descent is both highly original as well as an expertly crafted tribute to ancient Finnish death metal in its infancy. + + + + + + + 20 Buck Spin #20buckspin #cerebralrot #deathmetal

The raw power that Adversarial (Official) brought to the stage was untouchable. The sheer triumph that their presence at Covenant Vancouver represents cannot be overstated. A long time coming. Pure violence! 📷 Chelsea Mandziuk #adversarial

LLYN Y CWN LEADS EXCURSIONS INTO THE DEPTHS OF NIGHT TO CONFRONT “TWLL DU” + + + This isn’t just a nature walk or cavernous excursion, but the suggestion of something much more sinister and profound is lurking just out of sensory reach through the minimal melodies that act like a guide throughout this journey. + + + #coldspringrecords #llynycwn #darkambient #fieldrecording #wales #welsh Cold Spring

Few bands are as terrifying live as Antediluvian. They are all at once intimidatingly complicated and menacingly primitive, giving way to some malignant, technical form of song writing that is wholly otherworldly. 📷 Chelsea Mandziuk

In what was essentially an event unto itself, Tsimshian legends Gyibaaw returned to the stage for the first time in 8 years. It was a monumental performance from Canada’s most important First Nations metal band. Will they play again? Will new material surface? Only time will tell... 📷 Chelsea Mandziuk

Lingua Ignota fuses the sacred & profane into a tragic statement of triumph with "Caligula", out now on Profound Lore Records - - - "The musical shadow of Kristin Hayter, Lingua Ignota (latin for Unknown Language), defies absolute classification by genre, instead reaching far and wide through remote styles, founded on a bedrock of genuine rage borne out of Hayter’s experiences of domestic abuse in her own life. Juxtaposing the serene majesty of classical piano and orchestration with its overt antithesis in power electronics and primal chaos, a bizarre tension results, unfamiliar and incredibly dangerous."
