• MASSACRE _ Tri-pocalypse (7" EP)
  • It’s not that often that you get the chance to work with a true legend, even more so for a special release. Hence DOOMENTIA pride to announce the upcoming release of a very special EP for the legendary death metal act MASSACRE in two different formats with exclusive content and tracklisting.

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last thirty years or so, MASSACRE should need no introduction. Not only have the Orlando-based band helped build the very foundations death metal was built upon in the late 80’s, not only have they put out one of the genre best debut ever with From Beyond but ever since Kam Lee has rightfully regained control and firmly put his hands on the steering wheel with 2021 massive Resurgence album, they’ve decided to play the game according to their rules.

    Besides working with a rotating line-up of musicians (incl. Jonny Pettersson from WOMBBATH and Rogga from PAGANIZER among others) according to the situation, either be it in the studio or live, they’ve chosen to carefully put out on a regular basis high-quality and limited EPs instead of the regular album/touring cycle. Tri-pocalypse is once ready to set the bar even higher.

    A well-known huge horror movie fan, Lee has decided to pay tribute to the three apocalyptic films by director John Carpenter, namely ‘The Thing’, ‘Prince Of Darkness’ and ‘In The Mouth Of Madness’ which all served as a direct aesthetic and lyrical source of inspiration, especially since all three were themselves hugely influenced by Howard Philips Lovecraft writings, one of MASSACRE favourite lyrical theme. The outro (‘Escape From The End Of The World’) was specifically created for this EP by composer Rob Reider, in the style of Carpenter original soundtracks.

    Says Lee: “I’m excited for fans to get a hold of this new EP in physical format, because that’s the true way it’s meant for it to be represented. Both versions are awesome and I encourage everyone to try and get both the vinyl and CD copies. It’s a must for the collectors and completionist. The music style still resonates an old school death metal sound veering only slightly from its early roots and continues to combine a mixture of the classic Florida death metal style with a contemporary Swedish death metal sound. 

    Compared to the vinyl, the CD version has two exclusive remixed and rerecorded versions of ‘They Never Die’ and ‘Beyond The Dunwich Hills’, two songs originally included on a supra-limited self-produced CD last year. If the first one is an homage to the vampriric mythology, the second one is directly inspired by the tabletop RPG series Arkham Horror and is a kind of sequel to the song ‘The Dunwich Horror’ from 2022 EP Mythos.

    • SCHIZOPHRENIA _ Chants of the Abyss (12" EP)
    • 1 of 7
  • To say that Belgium’s SCHIZOPHRENIA took the underground by storm would be an understatement. Ever since their first EP Voices four years ago and the following insanely intense debut album in 2022, those starving youngsters have reinjected a much need sense of urgency and danger in the otherwise now quite mundane territory separating thrash from death metal. By using elements of both and adding their own twist and fury to them, hey’ve become one of the hottest bands around. They may have spent most of 2023 with over 80 shows played all over Europe and be working, as we speak, on their second full-length yet they still did find time to record a very special EP, first released digitally and on self released CD but now available as a lavish, cut at 45 RPM speed to ensure the best sound quality possible LP thanks to DOOMENTIA.

    Meant to salute their wide range of influences, Chants Of The Abyss was destined to be a quite large selection of styles. And indeed, by opening the hostilities with a raging SLAYER tune (‘Necrophiliac’), the very first cover they worked on for this tribute, before switching to death metal (MORBID ANGEL’s immortal ‘Maze Of Torment’), classic heavy-metal (JUDAS PRIEST’s ‘Metal Meltdown’) and horror punk (MISFITS’ ‘Bullet’) before paddling back to old-school thrash (EXODUS ‘Strike Of The Beast’) and concluding on a hardcore note (GBH’s ‘Race Against Time’), it goes above and beyond its duty.

    We’re not talking here of mere, carbon copy lazy covers but actual performances done with gusto, as if all those songs were theirs and freshly out of the rehearsal room. By paying homage to the godz, SCHIZOPHRENIA solidify their position as their legitimate heirs.

    • GERM BOMB _ Monochrome Nightmare (12" LP, PRE-ORDER)
  • GERM BOMB and DOOMENTIA go way back, starting with the vinyl version of their second album, Sound Of Horns back in 2013, with Under A Fading Sun following two years ago. While Gist Sucked Out was put out udring the label hiatus, both parties are more than happy to renew their partnership with its successor, Monochrome Nightmare

    Still led by the founding pair of Hempus Kuylenstierna (guitar, vocals, bass and organ) and Pierre Ohlsson (drums, vocals) Recorded in their hometown of Gothenburg at the Kust studio in between September 2022 and January 2023, album number five is one strange beast, both faithful to their D-beat/crossover roots with songs like ‘Narcissist’ while at the same treading on new, more rock n’roll ground but with an almost degenerate twist, such as on the opener ‘Nailed To The Cross’ or the post-punk pomp of ‘Sot’. Actually, the more you dive into the album, the more idiosyncratic it gets. Refusing to be pigeonholed yet with nevertheless his foot firmly on the pedal, the Swedish duo in their and self-proclaimed kings of ‘apocalyptic rock n’roll’ now in their fifteenth year of existence sounds more than ever like no-one else, even that means successfully inserting a French horn (!) into the mix like they did on ‘The Wolf’.

    DOOMENTIA has always been about supporting those who dare thinking out of the box. And no matter how punk they are, GERM BOMB most definitively fit the bill more than ever with Monochrome Nightmare!

    • Heavy Metal Thunder Sessions (7" EP) _ #2 ENFORCER / CAULDRON #1 STALLION / AMBUSH
  • As we were about to announce the launch of this very special series of soon-to-be-highly-collectable split EP, we were thinking about boosting how the heavy metal genre has been going through some kind of fascinating and enthralling revival over the last years… Until we realized our mistake: heavy metal never went away. Ever. Yes, it might at some point going back underground where it started in the first place but call it ‘true metal’, ‘epic metal’, ‘new wave of traditional heavy metal’ or whatnot, the fact is that ever since the bell rang on a rain-soaked bleak landscapes at the very beginning of Black Sabbath very first album in 1970, heavy metal just kept on growing and growing.
     
    So this series is less about resurgence than it is about resistance and a burning passion that simply refuses to let go. It’s also about supporting the bands who strive for heavy metal excellence and the whole scene they’ve built with their bare hands, quite often in pure DIY fashion. Each band will provide exclusive content, such as demo tracks, alternate mixes or covers and each entry will feature the same generic layout, giving this whole collectible series a sense of unity.
     
    #1 The first entry is feature Germany’s STALLION and Sweden’s AMBUSH, with a hole slab of renowned bands from all around the world having already agreed to take part in this celebration of everything we love about heavy metal. So up the irons!!!!!
     
    Tracklist:
    STALLION - "Canadian Steele" + "Give it to me" (demo 2013), AMBUSH - "Lust for Blood" (alternate mix).
     
    #2 The second part of the "Heavy Metal Thunder Sessions" collector's series comes with two important bands that started a new wave of traditional heavy metal in the world: Sweden's ENFORCER and Canada's CAULDRON! Two exclusive covers of legendary 80s heavy metal bands for the first time on vinyl format!

    ENFORCER - "Attack" (Jonah Quizz cover), CAULDRON - "Paris is Burning" (Dokken cover)

    • SACRAMENTUM _ Sedes Impiorum (7" EP)
    • 1 of 10
  • In the wake of their extremely well-received reunion in 2019 and the successful reissue of their cult debut album Far Away From The Sun six years earlier by Century Media, SACRAMENTUM have been since then carefully working on reissuing their whole back-catalogue so a whole new generation of fans could fully enjoy one of the Swedish melodic black/death scene best kept secret entire body of work. And thanks to DOOMENTIA, that task is now complete with the long-awaited first proper vinyl reissue of their very first recording…

    After various rereleases in cooperation with VIC RECORDS or COSMIC KEYS CREATIONS, SACRAMENTUM have closely worked with DOOMENTIA to offer the definitive version of Sedes Impiorum, maybe their most fascinating work. Back in 1992, after two years as TUMULUS where the then trio proved to be a pure product of their times with their classic Stockholm sounding form of death metal, founding members Nisse Karlén and Anders Brolycke vowed to distance themselves from this already too common sound to follow the left hand path.

    The first songs resulting from this realignment can be found on this rough recording from December 1992, done in a small studio in Falkoping, Sweden. Although traces of their former style can be found here and there, the emphasis here is on creating the most evil sounding atmosphere possible. Of course we’re still quite far away from the intricate and complex arrangements filled style that will soon be theirs but it remains overall a fascinating early document of a band still finding their feet yet already determined NOT to follow the cattle.

    Having painfully restored the original artwork for the occasion, DOOMENTIA is proud to make available again this piece of Swedish extreme metal history where everything started for SACRAMENTUM, still going strong over three decades later…

    • MÖRGHUUL _ Domination of the Beast (12" LP)
  • The new wave of old school thrash is not over yet! There are still new bands which are obsessed by old idols and the original sound of the 80s. One of them called MÖRGHUUL, formed in Brno in 2019. After a short search for themselves and first two average records, they released the devastating demo cassette "Possessed by demo" in 2022. MÖRGHUUL have definitely set the direction on this record they are heading in. Take the aggression of early Kreator and combine it with the influences of bands like Deathhammer, Nocturnal, Nifelheim or Desaster. You get uncompromising blackthrashing speed metal for all old school maniacs!
     
    This unique band, for the Czech metal scene, now comes with their debut album "Domination of the Beast" and has joined forces with Doomentia Records, label that has discovered many great bands for the metal world in the past. These youngsters have a future ahead of them and "Domination of the Beast" could open the door to the great European underground scene. The new album will be released on classic black vinyl and also on cassettes. Author of the blasphemous artwork is painter Tomáš Mitura (Sněť, Vole, etc.). MÖRGHUUL will take you back to the times when metal knew no genres and bands competed which one would be harder and play faster. A rigorous and dirty mix of black/thrash/speed/punk that will rip your head off at the first listen!

    • HELLISH CROSSFIRE _ Unholy Tyranny (12" PLP)
    • 1 of 15
  • HELLISH CROSSFIRE has always been more than ‘just’ a band. Think of them as a gathering of like-minded maniacs, driven by their endless passion for 80’s metal and bands like KREATOR, BATHORY, VENOM and so on. Those Germans may have not been very prolific over the years but every single release of theirs, especially their two, pedal-to-the-max albums from 2006 and 2010, all had that special spark, the blazing fire burning inside only true dedicated warriors could provide. A true band of brothers, united ‘til the very end, even when one of them alas falls by the wayside…

    In 2022, HELLISH CROSSFIRE four-stringer and founding member Sigi (aka ‘Sick’) passed away, leaving the black/thrash scene stunned and in disarray. After few months away from the public eye licking their collective wounds, not only has the band vowed to carry on but they’ve also decided to celebrate their fallen brother memory with a very special event. On December 1st and 2nd 2023, a festival, dubbed ‘Nights Of The Possessed’ and featuring bands like OLD, WITCHING HOUR, FATAL EMBRACE or DESASTER will be held in Hirschaid, Bavaria to pay homage to Sick.

    In order to make this day even more special, in cooperation with DOOMENTIA, HELLISH CROSSFIRE have agreed to reissue for the very first time on vinyl their first official rehearsal tape from 2004, Unholy Tyranny plus the hardly distributed Demo II recorded the following year under the same conditions. Featuring a mix of later rerecorded songs for their debut Slaves Of The Burning Pentagram plus unreleased tracks, incl. a raging cover of the KAT classic ‘Metal And Hell’. Needless to say those versions are raw-as-fuck and not for the faint of heart but for the true metal fans!

    500 copies on picture LP, with two different versions each with a different picture of Sick on the B-side. Also included is an updated version of the Unholy Tyranny cover artwork originally created by Rok from SADISTIK EXEKUTION. Hail 80’s metal, hail HELLISH CROSSFIRE and Rest In Power Sick!

    • MALOKARPATAN/NECROMANTE _ 7" SPLIT
  • As once again proven by their recent fourth album out on INVICTUS PRODUCTIONS, MALOKARPATAN is truly a band out of time with their unique mixture of heavy, black metal and medieval elements, deeply rooted in their native country cultural history. Nos less ‘weird’, in the sense they too refuse to be tagged or lumped into a specific category, NECROMANTE has also been following their own and as strange path for the last fifteen years or so, honouring not just their Brazilian elder brothers such as MYSTIFIER but the more occult-drive, atmospheric and primitive side of the early 90’s European scene as incarnated by MORTUARY DRAPE or SAMAEL ‘Into The Pentagram’-era.

    In a way, both acts were bound to forge an alliance at some point. Thanks to DOOMENTIA, this dream has now become a reality with this very special split EP, featuring two exclusive tracks. If MALOKAPARTAN’s own ‘Daemon Zlatavych Noci’ is a slow-paced and gloomy piece dedicated to two cult acts from the late 80’s Czech proto-black metal scene TÖRR and MORIORR, NECROMANTE’s ‘Magickal Black Moon’ is the very first song recorded by the band now extended and international line-up, showcasing a rougher yet as bewitching style.

    True to high standards set up by the label since its very inception, DOOMENTIA has once again pulled all the stops and came up with two, different and highly collectable artworks, each dedicated to one of the two bands included, plus a lyrics sheet and a classy gatefold cover. Forces of darkness unite!

    • DISMA _ THE GRAVELESS REMAINS (7" EP)
    • 1 of 7
  • Having reestablished their fruitful collaboration since last spring, DISMA and DOOMENTIA are proud to offer to the fans a new addition to their series of long-overdue of reissues of the whole band back-catalogue. Among them all,The Graveless Remains holds a very special place: originally released back in 2017 in one-extremely limited edition of 600 copies on vinyl only, this was one DISMA first new recording in six years, first without ex members Daryl Kahan and Shawn Eldridge. Now introducing IMMOLATION/GOREPHOBIA stickman Craig Smilowski. In the meantime, the extreme metal scene had once again going through some drastic changes and one could have thought that due to their absence, DISMA wasn’t the towering force to be reckoned with when they delivered Towards The Megalith in 2011. How wrong were they…

    Clocking at 14 minutes and featuring two exclusive songs, The Graveless Remains is DISMA at their meanest, most victim and overall brutal best. On side A, the title-track is probably one of their fastest and most to-the-point track ever whereas on the flipside, the nearly 8 minutes long ‘Sempiternal Deformity’ almost painfully drags the listener into the mud while beating him to death with the kind of slow and downtuned dirge only DISMA could come up, propelled by former INCANTATION frontman Craig Pillard's uncanny guttural grunt.

    Determined not to let this brilliant EP vanished in obscurity and EBAY scammers take advantage of the band’s faithful fans, DOOMENTIA has decided to rerelease it as seven inch, with a gatefold cover, a brand-new and as bleak artwork by Dan “Sawblade” Shaw and a poster.
