Product information "ABYSS OF HEL - Into The Abyss - CD"

Abyss of Hel was originally founded as a one-man-project by ex-Thrudvangar guitarist Daniel Stromayer. In the course of time, however, the idea quickly matured to give the whole thing more space and the current quintet gained shape and profile. The musical roots are more in American Death Metal, but also Progressive, Punk and Electro influences are found in the arrangements and unite to a modern, melodic and at the same time dark wall of sound.

The present debut album "Into The Abyss" depicts in terms of content the course of the mental breakdown of a man, his descent into the abyss and its realization of an irrevocable reality. The oppressive theme is carried by the intense, provocative and also melodramatic lyrics, which are performed both clean and with haunting growls.

The 10 songs were mixed by Lars Rettkowitz (Freedom Call), while Achim Köhler/Indiscreet Audio (among others Amon Amarth, Avantasia, Powerwolf) is responsible for the mastering. With this mature album, Abyss In Hel present surely one of the most surprising and impressive debuts of the year.

WALLOP - Hell On Wheels - CD
Oldschool Heavy Metal! After drummer Stefan Arnold left Grave Digger in 2018 after almost 23 years, it was time to resurrect the cult band WALLOP in the same year! And so the German heavy metal veterans, who released the highly acclaimed debut album "Metallic Alps" in 1985, disbanded afterwards and reunited 35 years later in their original line-up just as loudly, aggressively and enthusiastically, after "Alps On Fire" (2020) are now releasing their third longplayer. "Hell On Wheels" features unadulterated and authentic, original 80s old school heavy metal. On the one hand, the band has managed to develop further, but on the other hand, they don't sound like a modern band, because it is precisely the style of the 80s that characterizes the band. The use of keys and triggers was deliberately avoided during the album recordings. This album offers 10 songs full of independent old school heavy metal with catchy and straightforward songs that pick up speed and delight every fan of classic heavy metal!

COMMANDER - Angstridden - CD
Back with Impact! After their 2018 album "Fatalis", the South German death metal veterans, who have been around since 1999, are releasing a new heavyweight in record stores in 2024! The now 4th longplayer "Angstridden" once again impresses with a rough and brute death metal framework, whereby the band increasingly emphasizes its roots in the more extreme styles. Between furious blastbeat songs there are also quite groove-oriented elements before the new work culminates in the final track and undoubted highlight of the album "No Compulsion To Live", which leads into a true growl choir of 10 different growlers/screamers. Recorded and produced in the Sick Of Sound Studio under the direction of Michael Kraxenberger, the Bavarians really let it rip on "Angstridden" and undoubtedly deliver the highlight of their musical work to date with these ten tracks!

IRA TENAX - Dark Awakening CD
Melodic Death Metal to the point! The melodic death band IRA TENAX have been making their mark on the German metal scene since 1999. In 2024, the quartet are not only celebrating their 25th anniversary, but are also releasing a new album 10 years after their last longplayer "Portrait Of The Fallen" from 2014!  "Dark Awakening", the title of the new output, impresses with classic trademarks on its 11 tracks, both from the band itself and from melodic death metal as it has been present since the mid/end of the nineties. Melodic riffs meet brute drumming and versatile vocals to create an overall sound that sets the band pleasantly apart from the sheer endless abundance of bands in this genre, without having to reinvent the wheel or flirt with daring genre mixes. „Dark Awakening" was mixed and mastered by Kai Stahlenberg at Kohlekeller - Studio B (e.g. Disbelief, Agathodaimon) and the album artwork was created by Ken Coleman. "Dark Awakening" is a (melodic) death metal album as it should be. Brutal, technically and musically sophisticated, varied and yet precise to the point.

GRAND MASSIVE - Houses Of The Unholy - CD
Massive Metal! The germans from Grand Massive have been on the road since 2009 and have been able to gain a steadily growing following with 4 albums and several singles and EPs, as well as retaining it with massive live performances. With "Houses Of The Unholy", the bavarians are now releasing 5 songs that, with a playing time of just under 28 minutes, are not far removed from the longplayers of many other colleagues, but are not a "normal" release for the band itself. Rather, it is intended to bridge the waiting time for the next, "really long" album. In order to emphasize the special nature of the release, the aim was to bring some old companions on board right from the start. For example, original drummer Holger Stich was on drums for the recordings and Randy M Salo, an old companion of the band, was on bass. Above all, none other than the legendary Bay Area guitarist Doug Pearcy (Blind Illusion, ex-Heathen, ex-Anvil Bitch) recorded almost all the solos!  The album was mastered by Andy Claasen at Stage One Studio and with "Jump In The Fire" they took a Metallica classic and interpreted it in their very own, doomy, massive metal guise! In the end, "Houses Of The Unholy" is much more than just a "gap filler", but rather a massive demonstration of musical elemental force.

VHÄLDEMAR - Sanctuary Of Death - CD
Ready for Battle! With "Sanctuary Of Death", Spain's biggest (English-speaking) heavy metal band is about to release their seventh longplayer. 11 brand new tracks that should make the heart of every melodic heavy and power metal fan beat faster! The quintet has been flying the traditional metal flag since the end of the 90s and is inspiring a growing following outside Spain with catchy melodies and true anthems. Like its predecessors, the album was recorded and produced at Chromaticity Studios by guitarist and producer Pedro J. Monge and the artwork is also based on tradition, with Darkgrove, who has also created artwork for Manowar, Testament, Battle Beast and others, once again on board. "Sanctuary Of Death" is undoubtedly one of the heavy/power metal highlights of the year!

FINAL CRY - Zombique - CD
New edition of the completely sold-out 2018 album by Lower Saxony melodic death/thrashers Final Cry. With "Zombique", the band made an impressive comeback after 11 years of radio silence and released the rawest and heaviest album in their history to date. Guitarist Eiko, who took over the vocals in the meantime, characterizes this album with deep growls (rather unusual for Final Cry up to this point) and contributes a lot to the fact that the content concept, which revolves around voodoo cults and zombie stories among the Caribbean slaves with partly historically documented protagonists and their influence up to the Haitian revolution, also unfolds musically in full brutality.  Recorded and produced under the direction of Jost Schlüter at Pure Sonic Studios in Langelsheim, "Zombique" also features all of the band's trademarks that have grown over the years: merciless riffing, high tempos, great melodies and guitarist Eiko Truckenbrodt's almost unmistakable solos.  "Zombique" is a prime example of how a band should come back after a long break: With a punch right in the face! This re-released version of the comeback album features a slightly modified cover artwork.

EXTINCT - Incitement Of Violence - CD
Thrash Metal rule em all! The northern German thrashers from Extinct have been making their mark on the German metal scene since 2003. From the very beginning, the quartet has indulged in a mixture of old school thrash and modern death/thrash, with musical roots in both German and American thrash metal of the 80s. After their Full Lengt debut in 2013 and the "Downward Spiral" EP from 2021, it's finally time to present their second longplayer. With "Incitement Of Violence", they pick up exactly where they left off with their predecessors and put 12 grenades in the player that are guaranteed to make your neck ache. From pounding mid-tempo parts to slayeresque thrashing passages, the listener will find everything the thrashers heart desires. When talking about the burgeoning New Wave Of German Thrash Metal, Extinct is a name you can't miss in 2024, also due to their lively live presence.

BATTLECREEK - Maze Of The Mind - CD
German Thrash Metal meets Bay Area! With their third album "Maze of the Mind", the four thrashers from Battlecreek combine the unmistakable sound of German thrash metal with their Bay Area roots and transport it powerfully into the present. Since their formation in 2004, the four Bavarians have also tirelessly made a name for themselves in the national metal scene through countless live activities, which is why the quartet was also included in the documentary "Total Thrash" (2022) as a representative of the New Wave Of German Thrash Metal. The album was recorded and produced at 48Nord Studios by Chris Schmid, the song "Granvilles Hammer" also features a guest appearance by Philly Byrne from the Irish band Gamma Bomb, while the artwork was created by scene icon Andreas Marschall. "Maze Of The Mind" impressively demonstrates the sheer indomitable joy with which the guys go about their work and gives an idea that the quartet is also capable of bringing this energy to the stage.

FATAL FIRE - Arson - CD
Female fronted Power Metal! With Fatal Fire, one of Germany's most promising power metal newcomers is preparing to leave a clear mark on the metal landscape with an extremely successful debut. The band was founded in 2020 and used the time of the pandemic for mature songwriting before making a name for themselves at over 20 concerts and festival shows nationwide in 22/23.  This album is bursting with enthusiasm. The 8 power metal songs, with some thrash and a lot of speed metal leanings, are instrumentally dominated by two-voiced leads and distinctive solos. Svenja's unique voice gives the whole thing an extra dose of dynamism, as she is able to cover both melodic and rocky tones. „Arson" was recorded and produced in the "Bazement Studio" in Strinz-Trinitatis by Markus Teske, who has also forged albums by Vandenplas, Kambrium, The New Roses, Mob Rules and others.

STORMHUNTER - Best Before: Death - CD
German Heavy Metal! Stormhunter have been making their mark on the German metal scene since 1998 and, after two EPs (Ready For Boarding, 2020, Strangle With Care, 2022), are now releasing their long-awaited fourth longplayer, "Best Before: Death", in 2024. The band continues their tradition of classic "German Heavy Metal", still dispensing with keyboards in their arrangements and instead increasing the proportion of choirs, which give the songs even more of an anthemic character. The new album was recorded and produced at Iguana Studios under the direction of Christoph Brandes, while Timon Kokott has provided the whole thing with artwork that illustrates the loose concept of the content, which revolves around death.  "Best Before: Death" is described by the band as their "most personal album" to date, as it incorporates various experiences from the band's environment and looks at death from different angles, from loss to redemption. In the 11 songs, the band refrains from musical experiments, but still offers one or two surprising approaches while rocking their way through exactly 48 minutes with sophisticated guitar work and a variety of melodies.

DRAIN DOWN - Toxic Society CD
Old School Thrash with HC Attitude! Founded in Freiburg in 2018, the trio now released their second longplayer, "Toxic Society", which, as with their predecessors, should appeal to fans of old school thrash with a punk/hardcore attitude. In the fall of 2019, the guys spent four weeks on tour in Europe supporting The Exploited before their further development was abruptly interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, as is the case with many bands.  At the end of 2022, the follow-up to their 2021 debut was recorded at Iguana Studios under the direction of Christoph Brandes (e.g. Craving, The Spirit, Pessimist) and see the light of day in early 2024. The 10 songs are in the tradition of hardcore punk-influenced thrash metal, with the genretypically themes like social issues and the decline of society.  With a new record and a new label behind them, the Drain Down train will pick up speed again!

SERVANT - Aetas Ascensus - CD
Age of Ascension ! With their impressive debut "Blessed By The Light Of A Thousand Stars" Servant belonged to the Black Metal surprises of the year 2021. Now with "Aetas Ascensus" the successor is ready to confirm the high expectations, which they undoubtedly succeed in doing! With the new 9 songs Servant fulfil their claim to take the next step.  Musically, much of the new material seems more furious and wild. Blast beats are paired with complex harmonic guitars and merge with the authentic vocals to create an emotionally charged atmosphere. Melody and harmony are the cornerstones of another impressive Black Metal work, which lyrically deals with a variety of religious texts, whereby gnosis plays a major role here and also the politics behind. So the album also contains songs about emperors and kings who have fallen prey to madness and have helped to destroy themselves and their empire.   "Aetas Ascensus" is a complex piece of music, bursting with a wealth of details. Those who already enjoyed the Scandinavian Black Metal influenced debut will love the no less majestic, latently symphonic and yet more brute successor!

DEIMOS' DAWN - Anthem Of The Lost - VINYL LP
Marc Grewe goes THRASH METAL!  When Germany's flagship-growler Marc Grewe (ex-Morgoth, Insidious Disease) gets ready to step behind a microphone, you can be sure to be bombarded with pure Death Metal ... until now! Because with Deimos' Dawn the scene veteran stands for the first time in front of a THRASH METAL band of pure and classical coinage. Bands like Kreator, Slayer, Sodom and Sepultura have obviously left deep marks on the band's founders Andy Doé (guitar), Matthias Lange (bass) and Mathias Schmidt (drums), so that the three, who have known each other since early childhood, didn't have to spend a long time looking for ideas when they launched Deimos Dawn in 2017 and soon recruited the perfect frontman in Marc. 12 songs, on which Grewe with the full vocal range of his skills and the most diverse vocal performance of his career puts the black-golden crown of a poison and bile-spewing king of the underworld, are waiting to blow a fresh wind of devastation through your brain.  The band's great joy in playing makes it unmistakably clear that Deimos' Dawn are something special. So special, in fact, that former Sodom guitarist and jack-of-all-trades Andy Brings had to write (nearly) all lyrics and produce Grewe's vocals out of sheer enthusiasm for the concept and songs. Yes, had to!  With "Anthem Of The Lost" Deimos' Dawn undoubtedly write a new, strong chapter in the big book of Thrash Metal!

CASSIUS KING - Dread The Dawn - CD
All Hail to the King!  Dan Lorenzo (ex-Hades, Non Fiction, Patriarchs In Black) ist eine fleischgewordene Riff Maschine, oder wie die Fachpresse ihm oft bescheinigte: Seine Meisterschaft in der Kunst echte, lebensnahe Riffs zu schreiben ist unübertroffen! Mit „Dread To Dawn“ treten Cassius King auf ihrem Zweitlingswerk erneut den Beweis dieser Aussage an.  Auf 11 Songs wälzt sich das Quartett durch schleppende, ergreifende Melodien, umschlungen von den markanten Vocals von Jason McMaster (Watchtower, Dangerous Toys), welche dem Gesamtsound eine authentische Tiefe verleihen und getrieben von den erbarmungslosen Grooves eines Ron Lipnicki (ex-Overkill, Whiplash). Cassius King ist ein vertontes Gefühl, welchem man mit den Oberbegriffen Doom und Stoner eigentlich nicht gerecht werden kann. Mit dem Release von „Dread To Dawn“ beweisen die Herren zudem, dass es sich bei Cassius King um deutlich mehr handelt, als ein einmalig konstruiertes All-Star Projekt. Zählt man Dan Lorenzos gleichnamiges Solo Album aus dem Jahr 2004 mit, ist der Nachfolger des letztjährigen „Field Trip“ bereits der dritte Longplayer in nahezu identischer Besetzung. Wer sich von den vorliegenden Songs in die Tiefe reißen lässt, wird unwillkürlich hoffen, dass es nicht das letzte seiner Art ist.  TRACKLIST 1. Abandon Paradise 2. As I Beginn To Turn 3.
