The song you’re about to hear should probably be delivered with a supplemental oxygen supply — just a mask, a tube, and a small canister capable of feeding your lungs long enough to make it through this 2 1/2 minute hurricane of sound without gasping for air. To avoid utter evisceration, it might also be a good idea to borrow some Kevlar body armor.

Tsantsas” is the name of this breathtaking assault, and it comes blazing at us from the sophomore album of the Italian death metal band Demiurgon. Entitled The Oblivious Lure, it will be released on July 12th by Everlasting Spew Records. It arrives four years after the band’s 2015 full-length debut, Above the Unworthy, whose music we praised repeatedly at this site in the lead-up to its release, and attempted to sum up in this flurry of words: Continue reading »

Last spring we had the pleasure of premiering a killer song from Above the Unworthy, the debut album by Italy’s Demiurgon released in June by Ungodly Ruins Production, and today we bring you the debut of a lyric video for a brand new Demiurgon song: “Teatro Del Coito“.

This new song is destined for release as part of a split with another Italian band, Valgrind. It’s a bit of an experiment for the band, as they recorded the song using drop-A tuning and wrote the song with lyrics in Italian. And for those who aren’t conversant in Italian, well, let’s just say that Demiurgon welcome you to the theater of sex. Continue reading »

I’m awash in new music, with not enough time to cover everything I want to throw your way. Consequently, and as is usually the case, I’m making this selection on a random basis: These are the last two selections of music I heard in my scurrying through the interhole that I really liked. The first two bands I’ve featured before; the third one is a new discovery.


About three weeks ago we premiered a song from Demiurgon’s debut album Above the Unworthy, which was mixed and mastered at 16th Cellar Studios by the masterful Stefano Morabito and  features cover art by the masterful Pär Oloffson. Yesterday it was officially released by Ungodly Ruins Production and the entire album is now available for listening and download on Bandcamp, where it can also be ordered on CD. If you’re a fan of well-executed death metal, you really owe yourself to check it out. Continue reading »

Back in March I discovered a new lyric video for a song called “Rex Mundi” by Italy’s Demiurgon that knocked me flat, and today we have the pleasure of bringing you another new song from the band — “Pillars of Inverted Creation”.

The song appears on Demiurgon’s debut album Above the Unworthy, which was mixed and mastered at 16th Cellar Studios by the masterful Stefano Morabito and it features cover art by the masterful Pär Oloffson. It will be released by Ungodly Ruins Production on May 31, 2015. And this song will knock you flat, too. Continue reading »

I’ve got six more days left before the project for my fucking day-and-night job that’s been screwing with my blog time comes to an end and I can get back home. It has been severely interfering with my ability to round up new music and news, but I did manage to find enough time this morning to write about some things I’ve been meaning to feature at the site for a while, plus one  recent discovery.


Earlier this month we premiered a new song by an Indian band named Dormant Inferno that’s scheduled to appear on a split release entitled Beyond Forgotten Shores with a Pakistani band named Dionysus. I intended to follow that with a premiere of a Dionysus song, but in part because of my fucking day-and-night job and in part because I’m an idiot, I didn’t follow through on that plan — and now, the Dionysus tracks on the split (along with all the Dormant Inferno tracks) are up on Bandcamp for listening in advance of the split’s official release.
