Creeping Releasing "Revenant"

New Zealand's Creeping is one of the metal underground's best-kept secrets, and thus Iron Bonhead Productions is proud to present the vinyl version of the band's third album, "Revenant," coming on August 28th. The label comments:

"For a decade now, Creeping have been capturing the sensation(s) of their very moniker with a potent blend of doomed-out death metal dusted with black metalled atmosphere. It's a sound that doesn't conveniently slot into one category - be it black, death, or doom metal - but one that bristles with unself-conscious uniqueness and a strive for the beyond.

"'Revenant' is arguably Creeping's best, most-beyond work yet, each of the five molten, monolithic tracks unfolding patiently, dragging the listener into the undertow before crushing all fortitude with the sheer psychic and physical weight of their rotten ruminations.

"Whether the listener would rather be bulldozed or entranced, it matters not: 'Revanant' tantalizingly offers keys to wherever you care to go. But returning is another matter, one that's forever Creeping..."

"Necroterror Records presents 'Rites of Spiritual Death,' a split 12" LP limited to 300 copies, containing exclusive tracks from two unholy heralds of perpetual gloom, Glorior Belli and Creeping. On one side of the slab, a grand and scorching illumination by the beams of Lucifer glorified on high; on the other, oppressive scorn directed straight at Sol from the swamps of Hell.

"Coupled with exceptional artwork and fold out A3 poster, this release commemorates the infernal congregation of both hemispheres under the sigil of the Devil. Die in the one true light!"

Unearthing The Metal Underground In New Zealand

Each week in "Unearthing the Metal Underground," we'll be putting a few quality underground bands in the spotlight in an attempt to get the word out about them. This week I am delving into the New Zealand metal scene.

While NZ's main metal export for some time has been either 8 Foot Sativa (melodic death meets groove metal) or Dawn of Azazel (brutal death metal), New Zealand has a number of other gems in the rough with a lot of local support.
