Worship the Daemon
Russian label/distro Daemon Worship Productions has been quietly releasing some of the best extreme metal in recent memory (see Svartidaudi’s Flesh Cathedral for proof ), and have got samples of most of their releases up on Bandcamp for your listening pleasure. Alongside an excellent new EP from Saint Petersburg deathmongers Odem and a highly-anticipated Nightbringer/Dodsengel split, the label’s next project is a collection of hard-to-find pre-album Weapon material to celebrate the band’s ten-year anniversary, and will include 2004’s Within The Flesh Of The Satanist’ demo, 2005’s Violated Hejab EP and the Para Bhakti… Salvation EP from 2008.
If you’re at all interested in occult black and/or death metal, you need to keep an eye on them.
Here are a few new and upcoming gems worth investigating:
Odem – The Valley of Cut Tongues
NIGHTBRINGER & DØDSENGEL – Circumambulations of the Solar Inferno
Arfsynd – Hesychia
Snakeskin Angels – Witchchapel
