Helcaraxe To Release New Mini-CD

New Jersey-based death metallers HELCARAXE will release their new mini-CD, "No God To Save You", later this month via Australia's Wolfs Moon Recordings. The follow-up to "Triumph & Revenge" (Regimental Records) contains "nearly 30 minutes of crushing, barbarous death metal," according to a press release.

Formed in 2003 by members of the black metal band OPEN GRAVE, HELCARAXE's brand of unconvential, complex, and atmospheric death metal has taken the metal world by surprise. Often compared to AMON AMARTH, old AMORPHIS and UNLEASHED, HELCARAXE has quickly become a favorite amongst the hordes of true death metal fanatics.

A track from the upcoming mini-CD, "Chain Mail", can be heard at this location.
