News for October…
After many years in the making, Australia's Wither have finally cursed us with an utterly crushing debut Necropolis. Following the development initiated by the split with German funeral doom masters Worship, and carried forward with their self-titled EP; the debut boasts the integration of subtle influences as diverse as 80's post-punk/goths The Sisters of Mercy, and Katatonia's monumental Brave Murder Day. This may very well be the most vehemently dispirited and emotionally crushing album to see the pale moonlight since the likes of Alloy and Suicidal Emotions. Out now!

Cauldron Black Ram - The Poisoner Maxi-EP jewelcase version
Theudho - When Ice Crowns the Earth
"When Ice Crowns the Earth", is the fourth full-length album of THEUDHO. With a more guitar driven sound, more diverse songwriting, a technical precise execution of the music and a better production, THEUDHO deliver us their best album to date.
From the thrashing madness of "War into the World" to the haunting darkness of "Niðr ok Norð " over the eerie "Lokabrenna" to the blasting aggression of "The Straw Death" and everything in between, there is no doubt that THEUDHO has reached a new peak.
