The seven track follow-up to last year’s "For His Satanic Majesty’s Glory" (reviewed here) is a ritual casting to the forces of death, revolution, and liberty, in acknowledgement of the continual entrapment of free essence into the chains of life through the force of the phallus.

1. Satanicus Sabbathicus
2. Possessed By Death

Howling Posts New Album Teaser

Howling is set to release a new album through Razorback Recordings in early 2013. A teaser trailer for the album has now been posted online and can be heard below. Razorback also commented:

"When the howling starts, the terror begins! Razorback Recordings will be releasing the debut full-length CD in early 2013 from the death-thrashing creatures of the night, Howling! The band is a whirlwind of loud, fast, and thrashing heavy fucking METAL, with an emphasis on extremely catchy headbanging riffs meant to summon forth the powers of darkness!

"Get ready for an album loaded with some of the most memorable riffs and songs in a long time. Definitely an album you will want to play over and over again. The band takes influence from many classic bands but avoids the typical 'retro' thing by simply writing good SONGS and doing their own thing, which is something that is really missing from underground metal today."

The structure consists anonymously of well-known musicians from the Moscow metal scene."

"Holy Fucking AntiChristmas" Volume 5 Released

The fifth annual "Holy Fucking AntiChristmas" compilation has now been posted online for free streaming and download via Misantrof ANTIRecords right here. Misantrof also comments:

"If you're reading this, doomsday is cancelled, or who knows? Maybe the armageddon will come later today. So either you want to celebrate the fact you are still alive, or you want to die happily later today, this is the only soundtrack you need.

"Our sole concern is that it seems we're about to get another money based Christmas. Once again. Christmas has now lost whatever religious significance it had to all but a small handful of people, and it has become a sick orgy of exploitation where everyone is encouraged to spend money to buy stuff they don't need and probably cannot afford.

"We just want to give everyone something for free, and hopefully at the same time make people sit back and realize that there are ways to have fun that do not require vast sums of money."

The lineup on the two disc features a variety of punk, rock, and metal acts including: More...
