08/27/2004: "Elite Black Metal NEW ARRIVALS and RESTOCKS just received from: Total Holocaust, Sweden; and Moribund Cult!"
As usual (aaarrrggghhh!), "Limited Quantities Only" available for this last weekend of AUGUST 2004!
3 NEW ARRIVALS from Total Holocaust Records, Sweden:
VARGLEIDE (Forest; Russian NSBM) "When only ashes and scorched earth are left behind" CD (THR055CD)
Blazebirth Hall has many bands under their wings, one of them was VARGLEIDE which actually is the band that was formed from the burning ashes of FOREST, whom have done some releases under the iso666 record label! There's no holding back in the sound of VARGLEIDE's barbaric shouted vocals (similar as on LUCIFUGUM "...Back To Chopped Down Roots" CD), all sung in Russian, stunning songwriting, that resembles early Black Metal classics of DARKTHRONE, STRID, and early MANES! Yet, still distinctly carrying on an elite soul of itís own. Limited to an assault of only 1000 copies made; import CD (6 songs; 34 minutes) from Total Holocaust Records, Sweden, and Stellar Winter, Russia.
* "VARGLEIDE is a proud member of The Pagan Front; The Pagan Front: A Hammer of National Socialist Black Metal Underground!"
XASTHUR "Suicide In Dark Serenity +Bonus Track!" CD (THR056CD)
Previously released on VINYL MLP through Bestial Onslaught Records; but now finally available on CD, with one bonus song, in form of a 17-minute long Reherasal track from the "Nocturnal Poisoning" session, that carries an even more desperate and soul grinding sound then the original version had! Carefully remixed and remastered (2004). Import CD from Total Holocaust Records, Sweden.
"...And now has got the sound that makes the whole sky come down on you, with itís totally crushing bleak, depressive and emotional shaprened dagger against your exposed aorta. Let the blood flow, let Xasthur in..." -- H./THR
XASTHUR "To Violate the Oblivious" CD (THR059CD)
New full-length CD! from XASTHUR. Spanning over 50 minute in length, and contains all new material recorded in 2004! 8 tracks in total + 1 intro! Maleficís best effort to date without a doubt. Import CD from Total Holocaust Records Sweden.
"The best way to describe it, would be to not compare it to anything at all, since this album carries itís own identity and sound. The only thing that one can say, is that this is an album you wont sit smiling through, this is a trip to the darkest of minds, and inner hysteria, embrace the madness, give in for those thoughts that has been tormenting you. Embrace death..." -- H./THR
