Once again, Iron Bonehead brings together two of the black/death underground for a split LP: Vassafor and Temple Nightside now combine forces for "Call Of The Maelstrom," due out February 23rd. Iron Bonehead Productions comments:
"Aptly titled, 'Call of the Maelstrom' unites both bands not simply by geography - Vassafor hails from New Zealand, while Temple Nightside hails from Australia - but rather, a shared sensibility and strive to explore the abyss, whatever plane it may manifest itself.
"Widely revered in the underground for their serpentine sonic sorcery, Vassafor here deliver four of their most direct tracks to date, grinding forth with utter barbarism that nevertheless retains the band's characteristically mesmeric quality - and a certain hideous hypnosis.
"On the flip, Temple Nightside carry forward the bestiality with two soul-rending shards of gnawing, beyond-sepulchral metal of death that, over their more extended length, frequently drive deep into totally doomed territory." More...
Cult metal stronghold Nuclear Winter Records announces September 6th as the international release date for Temple Nightside's "Condemnation" CD/LP. The following press release was issued about the album:
"Hailing from the currently untouchable Australian black metal scene, the mysterious Temple Nightside remain rooted in the blackest arts whilst performing the ancient Metal of Death, self-described as 'Ritualistic Death Metal Necromancy.' And indeed, that's precisely what the Oz duo offer up on their highly anticipated debut album, Condemnation. Churning, gnawing, throbbing, Condemnation is blackened DEATH-fucking-METAL with its soul ripped asunder.
"Each strike upon stretched animal skin and amplified barbed wire, each slice of atmosphere forever descending, each cacophonous bellow from depths unknown - all are in service to infernal forces beyond human comprehension. Temple Nightside give you the keys to your Condemnation. Dark Descent Records is handling the North American release of Condemnation."
