DVP 248 Firmament – We Don’t Rise, We Just Fall LP/CD/MC

DVP 248 Firmament – We Don’t Rise, We Just Fall LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Germany’s FIRMAMENT, We Don’t Rise, We Just Fall, on CD, music cassette and vinyl LP formats.


Hailing from Leipzig, Germany’s FIRMAMENT are a new heavy rock quintet begun in early 2021 by ex-members of TENSION, Prisma, and Wayward. Despite three of the members having done time in TENSION – who released their critically acclaimed debut album, Tension, via DYING VICTIMS last year – the goal for FIRMAMENT from the start was to write moving and thus catchy hard rock songs that get stuck in your head immediately as well as stylistically/spiritually returning to an era before traditional heavy metal even existed. So, while it’s tempting to superficially think FIRMAMENT are an extension of where TENSION left off, the truth is that FIRMAMENT are indeed their own “firmament.”

FIRMAMENT’s first recording together was a two-song single, “The Void / Losing You,” which they recorded live in their rehearsal room. The single was first released digitally during the autumn of 2021, and then was released as a super-limited homemade tape sold exclusively at gigs. With such heartfelt and truly homemade passion, during March 2022 did FIRMAMENT enter the studio to record their debut album. Poignantly titled We Don’t Rise, We Just Fall, FIRMAMENT’s first full-length sees the five-piece steering the same ship – the unapologetically old-school vibes of the ‘70s and ‘80s and transferring them to the current time, without being stuck in specific genre boxes – but doing so more masterfully than before. Like those throwback eras (and particularly during the ‘70s), equal emphasis is placed on performance and songwriting, each one informing the other, resulting in an album-long experience where each of these nine songs retains its own identity and personality but come together to create a unified-yet-unique headspace. Just witness the deftly dynamic and era-authentic never-overdriven guitar work, where Tom Michalik and Philipp Meyer weave heartrending twin-guitar melodies; underneath that but actually taking center stage is the propulsive-yet-melodic bass work of Stefan Deutsch, which hooks just as effortlessly as those of his six-string partners. Of course, classic hard rock and proto-metal often lives or dies on the strength of its vocals, and in this department are FIRMAMENT no slouch: delivering his last performance with the band, frontman Maik Huber incites goosebumps with emotive, melancholic lines that sound as old as time and further add an air of mystery to We Don’t Rise, We Just Fall.

While FIRMAMENT are currently working on fresh material with new vocalist Marco Herrmann, We Don’t Rise, We Just Fall stands as a citadel of archaic melancholy – towering in its aura, yet approachable across its moss-covered landscape. Maniacs for ‘70s Scorpions, Blue Öyster Cult, Wishbone Ash, and Thin Lizzy, lay down your sword and stand before FIRMAMENT!

DVP 249 Hellcrash – Demonic Assassinatiön LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present HELLCRASH’s highly anticipated second album, Demonic Assassination, on CD, music cassette and vinyl LP formats.

Despite forming in 2013 and a couple demos and a split over those first few years, it wasn’t until HELLCRASH’s debut album, Krvcifix Invertör, where the band started to make a dark name for itself. Released on vinyl by DYING VICTIMS in 2021, Krvcifix Invertör proved HELLCRASH were a power-trio in the grand tradition of domestic legends Bulldozer, brewing a similarly sleazy (and EVIL) style of speed metal. Simple but sublime it was, and diehards definitely took notice.

Now, two years later, arrives HELLCRASH’s second album, Demonic Assassination. On first glance (and especially THAT COVER), it would seem that HELLCRASH are sticking to their guns, sowing the same seeds as earliest Slayer, Venom, and of course Bulldozer. Peer deeper and this latest expurse of sodomy shows that there’s more – much more – to HELLCRASH’s cauldron. Immediately, their attack’s more refined here: some would call it “cleaning up,” but the fine-tuning of songcraft and polishing of production have paid off in spades across Demonic Assassination. As such, there’s far more variation in that songcraft – sometimes more speed metal, other times more thrash, or even metalpunk before it was such a thing, often all in the same song – and HELLCRASH ably finesse this transition with tighter execution that, thankfully, doesn’t sacrifice an ounce of energy. In fact, if there’s on guiding aspect here, it’s energy: while HELLCRASH sometimes seem on the verge of self-combustion, so juiced-up is their rollercoaster sound, it all spills over into the listener as a celebration of filth, fury, and FUN. Could this be their The Final Separation? Perhaps…

Still sick, still sleazy, and definitely still crude & rude, HELLCRASH are firing on ALL cylinders here, and not just the old ones. So, while the aforementioned references still apply, Demonic Assassination is equally recommended for maniacs of later GBH, Carnivore, Warfare, Crumbsuckers, and contemporaries Children of Technology.

DVP 251 Animalize – Tapes from the Crypt MLP/MCD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a reissue of the explosive debut mini-album of France’s ANIMALIZE, Tapes From the Crypt, on CD, and 12” vinyl formats.

Since 2018, France’s ANIMALIZE keep playing the kind of music that you (or your parents) may have been listening to 40 years ago. You know that “Heavy Metal” sound that appeared at a time when none of the band members was born. Well, they’re still doing it.

However, it is the band’s love of movies which arguably influence ANIMALIZE’s outlook the most and make the difference. For them, a visual identity and atmosphere – whether in their visual aesthetic, be it artwork or onstage, or especially their eventual videos – are of the utmost importance. Film also feeds their lyrics, quite often. The band states that such movies as Evil Dead, Mad Max, Pet Sematary, Masters of the Universe, and Terminator are among their most beloved.

While they would bring both to Technicolor climax with their debut album for DYING VICTIMS, Meat We Are Made Of, during the summer of 2022, ANIMALIZE nevertheless came out with all guns blazing two years prior on the preceding mini-album Tapes From the Crypt. With an eye-grabbing (and era-authentic) cover setting the stage, the originally-limited Tapes From the Crypt managed to make ANIMALIZE’s strengths plain and POWERFUL: cruising speed metal glory crossing swords with radio-ready traditional metal of a most mid-‘80s vintage. This is the sound of ANIMALIZE at their most straightforward– and, arguably, most accessible – for the proceeding debut full-length found them upping the vocal layering and especially the complexity considerably, but the gleam & glory of Tapes From the Crypt is undeniable, and undeniably fun. A snapshot of a still-boundless band finding their wings, now finally reissued: the saga of ANIMALIZE begins here!

DVP 258 High Warden – Land of Stone MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the debut demo tape of Germany’s HIGH WARDEN, Land of Stone, on music cassette format.

The newly founded two-piece released their first four tracks digitally in the end of 2022, but now this epic doom & heavy metal demo will get its appropriate tape release. Drawing inspiration from bands such as Magic Circle, Solstice, Orodruin and Reverend Bizarre (whom they also pay tribute to by covering “Cirith Ungol”), HIGH WARDEN frame their own signature sound, plainly named Slow Heavy Metal. It’s an endless death march on the warrior’s path towards bleakness, doom and the murderous malice of the Morgul vale, paved with iron-clad riffs of Ancient Steel.

DVP 250 EMISSARY – s/t LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the striking debut mini-album of Finland’s EMISSARY, self-titled Emissary, on cd and 12” vinyl format.

The planetary grid is riddled with unsteady and weak sonic occurrences, leaving a gap in the terrestrial soundscape. A planet-side distress signal originates from the northern hemisphere. Three trackers have joined forces in a mission to seal the aperture for good.

They are known as EMISSARY.

The tale of Finland’s EMISSARY began in October 2019, just moments before a Cirith Ungol gig in Helsinki. Dimi (Ranger) and Iiro’s idea of a band, which had already been around for years, got the fire it needed when they were chatting before the show with an old acquaintance, Joel (ex-Chevalier), and it turned out that his conceptions and ideas about music matched perfectly with the duo. Already at the first jam session, everything fell into place, and the trio focused immediately on writing their own songs. A shared vision crystallized week by week as sci-fi and fantasy fueled the ideas for the material. Even in the very beginning, the unrelenting power of old-school US power metal and the challenging structures of prog rock were the centerpieces of the music.

The epidemic slowed down the trio’s activities in spring 2020, but EMISSARY continued to actively rehearse whenever possible. In less than a year’s time after founding, the band began to record their debut five-track mini-album in cooperation with producer/engineer Anselmi Ahopalo.

Using precise state-of-the-art tech and stalwart sonic equipment from eras bygone, they have devised heavier-than-sun frequencies that would secure the breach and they would devote themselves as the Guardians of the Seal.

Indeed, EMISSARYs list of influences is vast and idiosyncratic. From the cult likes of Helstar, Sacred Blade, Camel, Virgin Steele, and Chastain to the big likes of Iron Maiden, Rush, Black Sabbath, Mercyful Fate, and Yes to films like Conan the Barbarian, Blade Runner, the first two Predator movies, the Star Trek franchise, and many, MANY more, EMISSARY’s pool of textures and sensations is nigh overwhelming, if not for the bravado in which they pursue their own sound and the resultant compositional mastery they so freely flex across Emissary. Truly, the record’s five primary songs – the aptly titled “Galactic Overture” sets the stage as an intro – burst and bristle with so many dazzling shapes, it’s almost an afterthought that the power-trio make these sonic sci-fi castles catchy. So, chops for days and also hooks just as long, EMISSARY here deliver a half-hour of infinite possibilities in what’s bound to be a classically brazen first statement – and now, under the auspices of DYING VICTIMS.

Stand by to receive auricular surge of earth-shattering heavy metal.
THE ORDER WILL BE RESTORED

DVP 253 LUCIFUGE – Monoliths of Wrath LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated fifth album of Germany’s LUCIFUGE, Monoliths of Wrath, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Since 2016, Germany’s have been steadily perfect an addicting style of blackened speed metalpunk, all guided by the iron fist of mainman Equinox. Come 2021’s fourth full-length Infernal Power, Equinox expanded LUCIFUGE to a full lineup, and it paid off in spades: the band’s first album under the banner of DYING VICTIMS capped this signature sound with power and applomb, exuding a new professionalism that somehow sounded dirtier than ever.

And as forecasted last year by their short ‘n’ sweet split with Italian comrades BUNKER 66, LUCIFUGE continue to spit-shine that sound with Monoliths of Wrath. Immediately upon pressing “play” on this fifth full-length, it becomes clear that Equinox and crew are taking their sound in a newer but no-less-parallel direction. Unapologetically more technical than their more idiomatic “metalpunk” past, LUCIFUGE’s latest LP is not lacking for speed – in fact, it’s FASTER – but this much-more-directly thrash-oriented record takes sonic cues from classic Sodom, Kreator, Exodus, and of course Slayer. Thankfully, we’re still entrenched in the ‘80s here, but more accurately 1987 rather than 1984. Likewise, the evil, blasphemic, and anti-religious themes are retained throughout the whole record, but Monoliths of Wrath sees LUCIFUGE integrating some almost-atmospheric black metal passages in between. So, while it definitely follows from the aforementioned full-length and split, Monoliths of Wrath involves much more complex song structures overall, which are given maximum power through the production: full-bodied and “pro” but hardly soft, LUCIFUGE’s first foray into a proper recording studio (rather than the practice room) makes a huge difference in highlighting their new dynamics and tempo variation. Oh, and did we mention the BREAKDOWNS? Seriously, this is a timewarp to ‘87, in the best possible way!

So, a blast from the past, but diffently: LUCIFUGE have truly nailed their own sound and direction with Monoliths of Wrath.

DVP 259 Mälheür – Nocturnal Forces MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the debut demo tape of France’s MÄLHEÜR, Nocturnal Forces, on music cassette format.

The four-piece realized that in their specific area nobody was delivering the real metallic assault and because of that, they started Mälheür in 2021. Their only aim is to summon Hell and oldschool steel. Fittingly they rehearse in the stables of an old castle and with influences ranging from Living Death, Whiplash, Deathhammer, Kreator to Razor (a cover of « City of Damnation » is included), it is clear that Mälheür is dedicated to the old days of speed and thrash. SATANIK SPEED LEGIONS RAISE FROM HELL and bang your heads to « Nocturnal Forces »!!!

DVP 261 Atonement – Sadistic Invaders LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Sweden’s ATONEMENT, Sadistic Invaders, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

One of the most literally explosive young bands in the nowadays metal underground, ATONEMENT are a trio of Swedes whose average age was 16 years old when they released their debut demo, Merciless Blasphemy, in 2021. Despite such youth, ATONEMENT proved that they are steeped in the ancient essence of thrashing death metal circa 1987. Bubbling forth from their cauldron of nastiness were the likes of early Destruction, Sepultura, Possessed, Death, Sweden’s Morbid, Germany’s Poison, and Chile’s Pentagram, and thus was Merciless Blasphemy aptly titled, for each of the demo’s five songs whipped forth a filth & fury quite unlike anything else around.

With expectations understandably high, ATONEMENT took their time crafting the penultimate debut album, and two years later it arrives in the form of Sadistic Invaders. Yet another aptly titled recording, Sadistic Invaders carries forward that filth & fury of its short-length predecessor and amazingly ups the nastiness to hellish levels. Again, even with the band not yet in their 20s, ATONEMENT are dead-ringers for juiced-up and jackhammering deathrash of a most mid-‘80s vintage, and the ten songs they devilishly dole out across the 37-minute album are somehow more crazed and compact than on said demo. And whereas that demo’s ultra-rawness emitted an air of the otherworldly, here on Sadistic Invaders do the trio impart a thicker and fuller-bodied aspect, retaining a respectable rawness but not at the expense of their superlative chops; while it’s always full speed ahead for ATONEMENT, they manage to twist the ceremonial knife in different and sometimes-impossible ways, elevating the album above the masses still searching for Endless Pain. Dizzying yet addicting, Sadistic Invaders hits with the power and precision of a nuclear strike.

And yet, it’s still early days for ATONEMENT, so who knows how far they’ll venture into the lungs of Hell? Sadistic Invaders provides the first full-length clues, and is highly recommended for maniacs of Deathhammer, Division Speed, and Norway’s late/great Condor.

DVP 262 Spectre – Lonesome Gambler MLP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a brand-new EP from Australia’s SPECTRE, Lonesome Gambler, on CD, 12” vinyl, and cassette tape formats. The CD and tape versions will include five bonus tracks from the band’s preceding singles and splits.

SPECTRE is the sterling heavy metal vison of Will Spectre. Formed in 2017, the band made its recorded debut that summer with the two-song Silver Invaders / Stand Alone single on the cult Heavy Chains label, which DYING VICTIMS released on 7” vinyl later that year. SPECTRE’s primary influences are heavy metal and hard rock of the late ’70s and early ‘80s, and they continued that streak with the Hard Attacks digital single in 2018. Four years would pass before the next SPECTRE recording, the two-song Drifter. On that record, Will Spectre was joined by his heavy friends Jake Glas (Outcast/Teuton) on vocals and David Harrington-George (The Wizar’d/Tarot) on bass. Expanding their purist palette, here did SPECTRE sprinkle spices from Will Spectre’s other musical conjurings – namely, The Wizar’d, Tarot, Dracula, and Crypt Vapor.

Despite its brief length, Drifter was undoubtedly a pivotal recording for SPECTRE, and now the duo of Will Spectre and David Harrington-George return with arguably their best and bravest record yet, Lonesome Gambler. With the average length around five minutes per track, the four songs comprising Lonesome Gambler display an “epic compactness” which wholly suits the moodier material here. Taking the bathos and pathos of its predecessor further, SPECTRE conjure a mystical realm where private-press NWOBHM, dark AOR, and even early deathrock reside: the rocking is measured but not too hard, the melodies are melancholic but not totally depressing, and back on the mic, Spectre’s vocals are somehow anthemic and sagely simultaneously. The vintage synths color these road/life/space-weary ruminations with tastefully dramatic effect, putting SPECTRE squarely on that precipice between 1979 and 1980, equally excited about and fearful of the future. It’s a subtle refinement altogether, but one that proves there’s plenty of magick still to be mined.

Bringing the past into the present, the CD and tape versions of Lonesome Gambler will include five bonus tracks – all from the band’s aforementioned short-lengths, thereby making this a currently complete discography of SPECTRE. Roll the dice and turn the wheel!

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on highlighter yellow vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch.
– CD edition with sticker and obi.
– MC edition with sticker, button, download code.

DVP 263 Flight – Echoes of Journeys Past LP/CD/MC/Shirt

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated third album of Norway’s FLIGHT, Echoes of Journeys Past, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

To call Norway’s FLIGHT “retro” or “vintage” is to miss the point. Since their formation in 2012, the band have walked the fine line between effortless and studious – a throwback to ’70s proto-metal, sure, but done with such vigor and authenticity that even the most skeptical listener would be helpless to resist being whisked away some four decades into the past. Simply, their music exists in that same vacuum when ROCK conquered all. FLIGHT bring the past into the present and write understated-yet-invigorating rockers that draw from a very rich (and idiosyncratic) history. To date, the band’s two full-length records mark specific periods of their patient oeuvre: 2015’s rough ‘n’ ready self-titled debut and 2018’s sci-fi-themed A Leap Through Matter.

Now, FLIGHT continue that patient ascent with LP #3, Echoes of Journeys Past. Presciently titled, Echoes of Journeys Past indeed steps deeper into that mythical, muddied past where genre delineations had yet to be created – and, more so, when “rocking out” was fully based on feel. Retaining that tasteful kinda-clean guitar tone that paradoxically allows their intrinsic grit to hit that much harder, FLIGHT seek a moodier batch of songs that dart in dazzling directions. Each one’s based on a brisk, but-never-rushed pace, and each winds back and forth between hook and lead, rocking and reeling.

There’s an elusive X-factor that makes the album such an enchanting spin, a touch of melancholy, or more so mystery. But most of all, it’s FLIGHT’s synthesis of songwriting and performance that pushes Echoes of Journeys Past into the halls of greatness. Every hit of the drum or strum of the guitar evokes a sensation of warmth, and the vocals adds a layer of pathos to the soundscape. All of this works in service of telling the STORY of the song. Indeed, the album plays out like a story, recalling so much of the 1970s without singly settling on one specific era or sound, before reaching a climax with the ten-minute closer “Mystic Mountain,” which sounds exactly as it’s titled.

The retro-rock game is more crowded than ever, but with roots equally in proto-metal, FLIGHT continue to explore relatively rarefied ground with increasingly powerful results. Strange as it may seem that that power has exploded tenfold by scaling back, Echoes of a Journey Past could yet be the band’s breakthrough record. Those who cherish Gorham/Robertson-era Thin Lizzy, Rainbow’s Down to Earth into Difficult to Cure, or even Blue Öyster Cult at their late ’70s / early ’80s peak, you’ve found your new modern classic.“

DVP 254 Speedwhore – Visions of a Parallel World LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated second album of Germany’s SPEEDWHORE, Visions of a Parallel World, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

SPEEDWHORE was formed in Munich by Tim Kuntze and Johannes Mikulits in 2006. What started as an alcohol-induced joke soon took its own course when, soon after, SPEEDWHORE had their first rehearsals with a quickly expanded lineup. Three demos followed (one unreleased) as well as two singles and constant gigs in the ever-thriving German underground. But it was the band’s debut album, The Future is Now – released in 2015 by the cult label Witches Brew – that truly put SPEEDWHORE on the metal map, featuring as it did an odd-yet-endearing mix of thrash, black metal, and traditional heavy metal. An EP and a split 7” followed before Tim moved to Berlin and revamped the band completely. With the lineup filled out by Alexander Pusch, Leonhard Link, and Marcel Cording, SPEEDWHORE started to have national and international gigs again, and this lineup released their first output on a tribute album to Japan’s legendary Sabbat as well as another split 7”.

Road-tested by yet more gigs, the revamped SPEEDWHORE make their full-length debut with Visions of a Parallel World. At once sounding strikingly SPEEDWHORE and incredibly reinvigorated, the band’s second album takes that odd-yet-endearing mix to grander, grimier levels. On the surface, much of Visions of a Parallel World could soundtrack a heavy metal drinking party…but listen closely and one will detect unique twists of atmosphere and a more idiosyncratic approach to songwriting that jointly put SPEEDWHORE in a whole new realm (or a rarefied one populated by such idiosyncratic cults as fellow Germans Witching Hour or Slovenian labelmates VIGILANCE). The nine-song/39-minute album charges hard and charges in many directions, but always forward and abyss-ward, and the filth freely washes over you as a ghostly fog of ancient terror simultaneously casts its spell. The supremely grainy & old-school yet spacious production skillfully enhances this sensation and further lends an air of the archaic to proceedings, but rest assured that true HEAVY METAL physicality is present and accounted for. Call Visions of a Parallel World, then, a heavy metal drinking party where dread portals are also opened.

Equally suited to the streets and castles, SPEEDWHORE fire up the motorbikes and evoke Visions of a Parallel World.

DVP 255 Violent Sin – Serpent’s Call LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present VIOLENT SIN’s highly anticipated debut album, Serpent’s Call, on CD, music cassette and vinyl LP format.

Hailing from Belgium, VIOLENT SIN formed in 2016 to honor and build upon the legacy of heavy metal and its varied & diverse forms. Although the band certainly draws inspiration from the days of yore, they’re certainly not limited to what people would call ’80s metal – in their words, “We believe that real metal is timeless” – and humbly and reverentially do they offer a continuation and innovation of what all their predecessors set in motion.

VIOLENT SIN’s first recording came in 2017 with a digital single, and then was followed a year later by a six-song demo. Five years would pass before a new lineup was configured, but at long last – and with a revitalized sound, to boot – is the band’s debut album ready to unleash its fury upon the world. Titled Serpent’s Call, VIOLENT SIN’s first full-length is indeed a summons to all headbangers who love denim and leather, cauldron and sword. Like a veritable jukebox, Serpent’s Call synthesizes all sorts of righteous metal styles – classic speed, proto-blackthrash, speed-cum-thrash, juiced-up traditional – into one 37-minute thrillride. The recording’s suitably rough but not overly raw, maintaining a “murky clarity” not unlike a classic Combat or Metal Blade record from 1985, and just the right amount of echo to emit sulfurous atmosphere. And at 11 swift ‘n’ stout songs, VIOLENT SIN race from one to the next, but always with memorability and malice.

For those who hail earliest Slayer, Exciter, Abattoir, Hallow’s Eve, and Germany’s Warlock, heed the Serpent’s Call of VIOLENT SIN!

DVP 256 Armagh- Serpent Storm LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present ARMAGH’s highly anticipated second album, Serpent Storm, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Formed in 2012, ARMAGH are a heavy metal force from Satanic City Warsaw. Mixing classic heavy metal from the ’70s and ’80s with proto-black metal, ARMAGH are the creators of First Wave Only movement, which unites several Polish bands delivering old-school metal – among them, labelmates GALLOWER and SEXMAG but also Torpor, Wielki Mrok, and R.I.P. – with primal severity in their sound and message.

Truly, ARMAGH are a maniac maniac’s band, idiosyncratic mainlining such noble influences as Thin Lizzy, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Motörhead, KISS, Manilla Road, early Slayer and Megadeth, W.A.S.P, Bathory, Dissection, Running Wild, KAT, and the NWOBHM in general into something authentically rustic and effortlessly unique. They delivered their first recording, the Venomous Frost EP, in 2016 and then followed it three years later with a split and then debut album, Cold Wrath of Mother Earth. The latter was exceptionally cult, but simply set the stage for their breakout record: Serpent Storm.

Wild and weird but never belabored, ARMAGH’s second album seemingly comes from an alien place – one where Battle Cry, Another Perfect Day, Haunting the Chapel, Chinatown, Under the Sign of the Black Mark, and Born Again all simultaneously play in perfect, hellish harmony. A true record collector’s record, Serpent Storm displays its power and personality at every turn, each of these ten songs offering its own canvas of darkness and mystery, ultimately making the album an epic of archaic splendor and true rivetheaded spirit. For as “old” as the album supposedly sounds (and by OLD, we mean ANCIENT), ARMAGH’s rumbling ‘n’ roiling attack feels remarkably fresh compared to so much nowadays “heavy metal” or especially “black metal”; from the warlocked clean tones of frontman Galin Soulreaper to his almost rock ‘n’ rollish guitar tones, there’s nothing trendy – only timeless – about that attack. The 45 minutes of Serpent Storm feel too short, so addicting is its alchemy.

Prepare for the sleeper hit of the year in ARMAGH’s Serpent Storm: FUCK MODERN METAL, FIRST WAVE ONLY!

DVP 257 Rapid – Blackstar Oppression Regime MLP/CD

DYING VICTMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present RAPID’s striking debut mini-album, Blackstar Oppression Regime, on 12” vinyl and CD formats.The CD version will include the band’s Deadly Torment demo as bonus tracks.

Hailing from coldest Finland, RAPID create burning-black speed metalpunk. The band’s roots go back to 2013, when the three friends – vocalist/bassist Vincent Revenge, drummer Tapio “The Goon” Malmström, and guitarist Atte “Spectre” Nikku, the latter two then still members of Excuse – were playing covers of such bands as Venom, Motörhead, Hellhammer, Slayer, and Judas Priest. The next year became more serious, and they decided to name themselves RAPID and soon recorded their first demo, Rapid Metal Attack. In 2016, they released their second demo, Deadly Torment, and garnered some larger recognition, especially outside of Finland. That then led to a deal with Svart Records for the Ancient Force 7” EP, released in 2017.

Then, in 2020, after a few years of different phases, live shows, and strict practice and composing, RAPID recorded their breakout mini-album, Blackstar Oppression Regime. Immediately upon pressing “play,” lighting strikes and it’s apparent that RAPID are more juiced-up than ever, electricity literally bristling from every second of these four songs. Whereas prior RAPID recordings suggested more convenient subgenre categorization, here on Blackstar Oppression Regime is the attack ever so subtly more unique. There’s the urgency of hardcore punk, the hook-oriented propulsion of speed metal, and the spidery aura of old-wave black metal, but even then, that only tells half the RAPID story; some of the lead lines could come from classic deathrock, while the general hot-rockin’ that anchors everything is pure turn-of-the-‘80s heavy metal. Put together, especially with the power-trio’s charisma spilling over into everything, Blackstar Oppression Regime becomes a four-pronged attack of timeless metal anarchy.

Previously only available digitally, Blackstar Oppression Regime now sees physical release via DYING VICTIMS, both as a stand-alone 12” and on CD buttressed by Deadly Torment. RAPID have arrived!

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on white vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch. (slightly delayed, will ship next week)

DVP 260 Critical Defiance – Misconception LP

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present CRITICAL DEFIANCE’s cult debut album, Misconception, on vinyl LP format.

Hailing from the cult-metal hotbed of Chile, for over a decade now, CRITICAL DEFIANCE have been steadfast purveyors of authentically late ‘80s-style THRASH. With a couple demos and a split preceding it, the band truly put themselves on the metal map with their 2019 debut album, Misconception.

Absolutely ripping right from the start, Misconception announced in a manner most Dark Angel “we have arrived!” Encompassing eight songs in 40 minutes, CRITICAL DEFIANCE’s debut album possessed a veritable treasure trove of ideas – or, rather, riffs and rhythms – too countless for such a seemingly compact runtime. Indeed, the Chileans whip forth a fury whereby everything races with palpitating intensity and the extreme aggression’s well into the red, but due to their jawdropping chops and a mad-scientist style of songwriting, everything across Misconception flows with a paradoxical sort of grace. Granted, such was the way of such legends as Sadus, Demolition Hammer, Morbid Saint, and indeed Dark Angel, and CRITICAL DEFIANCE duly honored this rich legacy with their own brand of actually-catchy tech-thrash…and they were just getting started!

Hear where one of modern vintage thrash’s best success stories started with this well-earned vinyl release of CRITICAL DEFIANCE’s Misconception!

DVP 265 Bottomless – The Banishing LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present BOTTOMLESS’ highly anticipated second album, The Banishing, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Hailing from Italy, BOTTOMLESS was formed in 2016 by the hands of vocalist/guitarist Giorgio Trombino and drummer David Lucido; bassist Sara Bianchin joined shortly after. Collectively, the band possesses a wealth of experience across other prior and present bands, including Messa, Assumption, Becerus, Shrieking Demons, Morbo, and many more. Five years later, in 2021 and preceded by a trio of three of digital singles, BOTTOMLESS released their self-titled debut album: a clear affirmation of the power-trio’s commitment to traditional doom metal yet with a slightly ‘70s edge, bluesy and hard rocking.

Now, two years later, BOTTOMLESS return with their second full-length. Appropriately titled The Banishing, the band take bold steps into new territories here, retaining their rootsy doom sound but moving it toward the epic and sometimes evil and most definitely dark. The relatively-dramatic shift reflects a focus on themes of magic, death, remembrance, and sorrow, most poignantly displayed across such tracks as “Guardians of Silence,” “By the Sword of the Archangel,” and the acoustic ballad “Drawn Into Yesterdays.” Even more so than the first album, The Banishing is a doom metal record for doom maniacs, reflecting emotional atmospheres reminiscent of classic Candlemass, Solitude Aeternus, the UK’s Solstice, and Manilla Road’s slower moments whilst firmly residing on a foundation of ‘80s doom ala Pentagram, Trouble, and especially Black Sabbath; one could say that BOTTOMLESS are even approaching the latter’s cult years with Tony Martin on the mic. And like the best vintage doom, whether it’s entrenched in the ‘70s or ‘80s, The Banishing is richly wrapped in an authentically analog production, all recorded, mixed, and mastered on tape in a few sessions.

BOTTOMLESS are truly hitting their stride now. The Banishing is for all those heavy rockin’ castaways who are living backwards, banished from the modern world and still looking to carve their own individual path into the realm of slow, somber heavy metal.

DVP 264 Midnight Prey – Black Cat / Sword and Shield MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a new two-track ep by Germany’s MIDNIGHT PREY on music cassette format. Both tracks will be part of a vinyl and cd split release at a later point.

The Hamburg based three-piece is back after a short hiatus and proves once again that genre limitations are nothing they care about. While the trademarks of their much-acclaimed debut album “Uncertain Times” from 2019 are certainly still there, the band will not stop to incorporate new elements into their sound. This puts them in their very own spot among more genre abiding current heavy metal acts.

Hard rockers, punks and metalheads alike will appreciate the new tunes clocking in at almost 6 and almost 8 minutes respectively

DVP 267 Farscape – Purged and Forgotten LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present FARSCAPE’s long-awaited fourth album, Purged and Forgotten, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Formed in 1998, Brazil’s FARSCAPE helped lead the charge for the neo-retro thrash resurgence in their homeland, which continues unabated to this day. A slew of releases came in 2001 – two demos, and respective splits with Atomic Roar and Vexed – but it was the 2003 debut album Demon’s Massacre where FARSCAPE first (and fully) stamped their name on the international metal map. While their contemporaries took slicker or more technical routes with their thrash, the quartet’s defiantly flew the flag of hate raised by Kreator during the mid/late ‘80s; in fact, vocalist/guitarist Witchcaptor could be a dead-ringer for classic Mille. During all this, all four members – amazingly, THE SAME LINEUP to this day – pursued other equally archaic metals with the likes of Diabolic Force, Atomic Roar, Apokalyptic Raids, Sodomizer, and later Whipstriker, further sowing the seeds of influence in their native Brazil and abroad. Two more albums followed, 2006’s Killers on the Loose and 2013’s Primitive Blitzkrieg, as well as a handful of short-length releases, but FARSCAPE essentially went on hiatus following that third album.

Now, a full decade since their last official recordings, FARSCAPE return with arguably their best album yet, Purged and Forgotten. After an eerie (and quite surprisingly melodic) intro, the fire & fury of classic Teutonic thrash is felt – and, by proxy, which they helped shape in a way most Brazilian so many years ago – but equally burning are some new, ever-so-subtle twists on that noble idiom. Without ever quite going fully “slick” nor “tech,” FARSCAPE here manage to honorably defy the Teutonic template: a more pronounced emphasis on leads, alternating between the eerily melodic and the tensely harmonic; tiny touches of atmospheric synth underneath the ripping riot of violence, further emphasizing the eerie; and in Witchcaptor’s charismatic snarl, an equally surprising number of thinking-outside-the-box patterns as well as layering, giving Purged and Forgotten an unusual, almost-“hall of mirrors” aspect. Elsewhere, the quartet’s songwriting locates that sweet spot between the linear and the twisted, not quite resorting to standard verse/chorus structures nor going overboard into the overly complicated. Simply, the red-eyed & rabid rush of classic FARSCAPE is accounted for, but these discerning veterans aren’t short on honorable ways to wind their characteristic sound. Purged and Forgotten? Not fucking yet!

DVP 268 Dungeon – Into The Ruins MLP/MCD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the long-awaited new mini-album of England/Germany’s DUNGEON, Into the Ruins, on CD, 12” vinyl, and cassette tape formats.

Originally formed in London, DUNGEON began their speed-thrash D-beat conquest with an aptly titled demo, Unholy Speed Attack, in 2015. A year later came the English Hell demo, released by the respected Me Saco Un Ojo Records. DUNGEON teamed up with Me Saco Un Ojo again for the release Purifying Fire mini-album in 2018, hitting a fever pitch in intensity and personality.

Now, a long five years after that last record, the hellions of DUNGEON return with another mini-album, and their most defining statement of metalpunk aggression: Into the Ruins. This MLP was recorded live over a sordid weekend in a damp Berlin bunker by engineer Max Hillebrand (Vasseur, Children) in September 2022. Featuring five filthy tracks across 22 minutes, Into the Ruins sees DUNGEON dig deeper into destruction, with evermore extreme influences bleeding into their sound. Their berserker energies summon Sodom and violent ‘80s thrash as well as Morbid Angel, Mercyful Fate, and Raped Ass-era Anti Cimex among other aural terrors, all merging into DUNGEON’s signature explosive sound. The Venom/Discharge/Priest foundation is still present, but warped and perverted to an even greater degree.

Into the Ruins is no doubt the work of one, all-pistons-pumping unit, but individual performances are worth noting for their contribution to the black (w)hole. DUNGEON master Luke Drew (ex-Ekrixi) has become an unstoppable force of demented musical wizardy, his songwriting reaching new heights over 2020’s lockdown. Six-string sadist Daragh Markham (Inhuman Nature, Who Cares?) brings his most spiteful guitar attacks to date. Olivia Airey (Maggot Heart, Raze) proves why she is one of the most sought-after players in the underground, with a filthy and undeniable presence throughout the MLP. And skin-smasher Chris Parker (Venomwolf) holds these shreds of sanity together with his uncanny instinct for barbaric flair. With Hillebrand at the helm, the full spectrum assault of DUNGEON’s chaotic, destructive, and notorious live shows has been fully harnessed and unleashed across this recording, resulting in five raw blasts of heavy D-beat metal savagery. A fitting score for the imminent collapse of civilization, DUNGEON give you a glimpse Into the Ruins…

DVP 269 Fukkin’ Vengeance – Sewer Surge LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Poland’s FUKKIN’ VENGEANCE, Sewer Surge, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Hailing from Warsaw, Poland’s VENGEANCE – AKA FUKKIN’ VENGEANCE – were formed in 2018 by guitarist Galin Soulripper and drummer Bomber. Later on, bassist Madman from Torpor and vocalist Alberth Dust of Bestiality joined the band, and the Fukkin’ Vengeance demo was recorded and released in early 2020. After their debut live show, the band parted ways with Alberth Dust. Vikk Vandal became the new vocalist; with his contribution, FUKKIN’ VENGEANCE started to rehearse the material for their first album. In the middle of the album’s recording session, Madman left the band, and shortly after his departure, Lucifera took on the bass and laid her tracks on the album, therefore establishing the lineup.

And, at long last, that first FUKKIN’ VEGEANCE album is here: Sewer Surge, no more perfectly titled. Like a storm-blast back to 1984, FUKKIN’ VEGEANCE’s first album is a rough, raw, but also refined travelogue across ancient metals and dark, dingy landscapes: a true True Metal maniac’s album that shows shades of classic Tokyo Blade, Living Death, OZ, Iron Angel, and Abattoir as well as the deepest dungeons of the NWOBHM. And yet, what really puts these Poles over is the absolutely electric personality – dirty as fuck and definitely slumming it up in those sewers, but strangely, invigoratingly DESPERATE and utterly going for the glory. Of course, all this aplomb would be for naught if they didn’t have the songs to back it up, and Sewer Surge positively bristles with one street-level anthem after another: the energy is always there, whether it’s a sewer-strutting mid-tempo or (more often) a long-live-the-loud speed metalled charge. But, lest one think that FUKKIN’ VENGEANCE are simply rivetheaded and only rivetheaded, there’s a tasteful incorporation of moody melody into their surprisingly spacious riffing, elevating them above their more strictly retro-minded contemporaries and more so driving home the point that the sewer is indeed one of the darkest (and dankest) places around. Feel their Sewer Surge post-haste!

DVP 261 Atonement – Sadistic Invaders LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Sweden’s ATONEMENT, Sadistic Invaders, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

One of the most literally explosive young bands in the nowadays metal underground, ATONEMENT are a trio of Swedes whose average age was 16 years old when they released their debut demo, Merciless Blasphemy, in 2021. Despite such youth, ATONEMENT proved that they are steeped in the ancient essence of thrashing death metal circa 1987. Bubbling forth from their cauldron of nastiness were the likes of early Destruction, Sepultura, Possessed, Death, Sweden’s Morbid, Germany’s Poison, and Chile’s Pentagram, and thus was Merciless Blasphemy aptly titled, for each of the demo’s five songs whipped forth a filth & fury quite unlike anything else around.

With expectations understandably high, ATONEMENT took their time crafting the penultimate debut album, and two years later it arrives in the form of Sadistic Invaders. Yet another aptly titled recording, Sadistic Invaders carries forward that filth & fury of its short-length predecessor and amazingly ups the nastiness to hellish levels. Again, even with the band not yet in their 20s, ATONEMENT are dead-ringers for juiced-up and jackhammering deathrash of a most mid-‘80s vintage, and the ten songs they devilishly dole out across the 37-minute album are somehow more crazed and compact than on said demo. And whereas that demo’s ultra-rawness emitted an air of the otherworldly, here on Sadistic Invaders do the trio impart a thicker and fuller-bodied aspect, retaining a respectable rawness but not at the expense of their superlative chops; while it’s always full speed ahead for ATONEMENT, they manage to twist the ceremonial knife in different and sometimes-impossible ways, elevating the album above the masses still searching for Endless Pain. Dizzying yet addicting, Sadistic Invaders hits with the power and precision of a nuclear strike.

And yet, it’s still early days for ATONEMENT, so who knows how far they’ll venture into the lungs of Hell? Sadistic Invaders provides the first full-length clues, and is highly recommended for maniacs of Deathhammer, Division Speed, and Norway’s late/great Condor.

DVP 262 Spectre – Lonesome Gambler MLP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a brand-new EP from Australia’s SPECTRE, Lonesome Gambler, on CD, 12” vinyl, and cassette tape formats. The CD and tape versions will include five bonus tracks from the band’s preceding singles and splits.

SPECTRE is the sterling heavy metal vison of Will Spectre. Formed in 2017, the band made its recorded debut that summer with the two-song Silver Invaders / Stand Alone single on the cult Heavy Chains label, which DYING VICTIMS released on 7” vinyl later that year. SPECTRE’s primary influences are heavy metal and hard rock of the late ’70s and early ‘80s, and they continued that streak with the Hard Attacks digital single in 2018. Four years would pass before the next SPECTRE recording, the two-song Drifter. On that record, Will Spectre was joined by his heavy friends Jake Glas (Outcast/Teuton) on vocals and David Harrington-George (The Wizar’d/Tarot) on bass. Expanding their purist palette, here did SPECTRE sprinkle spices from Will Spectre’s other musical conjurings – namely, The Wizar’d, Tarot, Dracula, and Crypt Vapor.

Despite its brief length, Drifter was undoubtedly a pivotal recording for SPECTRE, and now the duo of Will Spectre and David Harrington-George return with arguably their best and bravest record yet, Lonesome Gambler. With the average length around five minutes per track, the four songs comprising Lonesome Gambler display an “epic compactness” which wholly suits the moodier material here. Taking the bathos and pathos of its predecessor further, SPECTRE conjure a mystical realm where private-press NWOBHM, dark AOR, and even early deathrock reside: the rocking is measured but not too hard, the melodies are melancholic but not totally depressing, and back on the mic, Spectre’s vocals are somehow anthemic and sagely simultaneously. The vintage synths color these road/life/space-weary ruminations with tastefully dramatic effect, putting SPECTRE squarely on that precipice between 1979 and 1980, equally excited about and fearful of the future. It’s a subtle refinement altogether, but one that proves there’s plenty of magick still to be mined.

Bringing the past into the present, the CD and tape versions of Lonesome Gambler will include five bonus tracks – all from the band’s aforementioned short-lengths, thereby making this a currently complete discography of SPECTRE. Roll the dice and turn the wheel!

DVP 263 Flight – Echoes of Journeys Past LP/CD/MC/Shirt

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated third album of Norway’s FLIGHT, Echoes of Journeys Past, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

To call Norway’s FLIGHT “retro” or “vintage” is to miss the point. Since their formation in 2012, the band have walked the fine line between effortless and studious – a throwback to ’70s proto-metal, sure, but done with such vigor and authenticity that even the most skeptical listener would be helpless to resist being whisked away some four decades into the past. Simply, their music exists in that same vacuum when ROCK conquered all. FLIGHT bring the past into the present and write understated-yet-invigorating rockers that draw from a very rich (and idiosyncratic) history. To date, the band’s two full-length records mark specific periods of their patient oeuvre: 2015’s rough ‘n’ ready self-titled debut and 2018’s sci-fi-themed A Leap Through Matter.

Now, FLIGHT continue that patient ascent with LP #3, Echoes of Journeys Past. Presciently titled, Echoes of Journeys Past indeed steps deeper into that mythical, muddied past where genre delineations had yet to be created – and, more so, when “rocking out” was fully based on feel. Retaining that tasteful kinda-clean guitar tone that paradoxically allows their intrinsic grit to hit that much harder, FLIGHT seek a moodier batch of songs that dart in dazzling directions. Each one’s based on a brisk, but-never-rushed pace, and each winds back and forth between hook and lead, rocking and reeling.

There’s an elusive X-factor that makes the album such an enchanting spin, a touch of melancholy, or more so mystery. But most of all, it’s FLIGHT’s synthesis of songwriting and performance that pushes Echoes of Journeys Past into the halls of greatness. Every hit of the drum or strum of the guitar evokes a sensation of warmth, and the vocals adds a layer of pathos to the soundscape. All of this works in service of telling the STORY of the song. Indeed, the album plays out like a story, recalling so much of the 1970s without singly settling on one specific era or sound, before reaching a climax with the ten-minute closer “Mystic Mountain,” which sounds exactly as it’s titled.

The retro-rock game is more crowded than ever, but with roots equally in proto-metal, FLIGHT continue to explore relatively rarefied ground with increasingly powerful results. Strange as it may seem that that power has exploded tenfold by scaling back, Echoes of a Journey Past could yet be the band’s breakthrough record. Those who cherish Gorham/Robertson-era Thin Lizzy, Rainbow’s Down to Earth into Difficult to Cure, or even Blue Öyster Cult at their late ’70s / early ’80s peak, you’ve found your new modern classic.“

DVP 264 Midnight Prey – Black Cat / Sword and Shield MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a new two-track ep by Germany’s MIDNIGHT PREY on music cassette format. Both tracks will be part of a vinyl and cd split release at a later point.

The Hamburg based three-piece is back after a short hiatus and proves once again that genre limitations are nothing they care about. While the trademarks of their much-acclaimed debut album “Uncertain Times” from 2019 are certainly still there, the band will not stop to incorporate new elements into their sound. This puts them in their very own spot among more genre abiding current heavy metal acts.

Hard rockers, punks and metalheads alike will appreciate the new tunes clocking in at almost 6 and almost 8 minutes respectively

DVP 272 Reckless – Sharp Magik Steel LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Colombia’s RECKLESS, Sharp Magick Steel, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Hailing from Bogota, RECKLESS are a Colombian speed metal band formed in 2019 by vocalist/guitarist W. Metalbringer. He was soon joined by bassist Jawbreaker, who brings a solid & heavy foundation to their compositions; drummer Rites666, who drives the band’s frantic pace; and guitarist Spitfire, who complements the main riffing with blistering, passionate solos. With a solid foundation of Judas Priest, Accept, Running Wild, Slayer, Exodus, and Mercyful Fate, RECKLESS soon made their public debut with the two-song Relentless Assault / Prisoner single. Through those influences, the quartet displayed a distinct synthesis of thrash metal propulsion and classic heavy metal melodicism, arriving at a style of speed metal that’s timeless and fresh.

Now, RECKLESS burst forth with a full display of their powers and potential, the debut album Sharp Magick Steel. Almost too perfectly titled, Sharp Magick Steel is a cruising and chrome-encased blast of judiciously tight aggression and invigorating, streamlined songwriting. RECKLESS here invoke their namesake by pushing the pedal to the literal metal, pumping pistons and pushing each of these eight songs forward with a locomotive thrust, but it’s equally the deceptively patient execution which makes Sharp Magick Steel cut so thoroughly: these four metal warriors are totally in control, and they make it look – and sound – almost too easy. And, from cover art (courtesy of Velio Josto) on to the authentically vintage production, RECKLESS rage like it’s 1988!

Fans of the aforementioned as well as classic Annihilator, Jag Panzer, Artillery, and Germany’s Paradox are wholeheartedly encouraged to taste RECKLESS’ Sharp Magick Steel!

DVP 273 Savage – Glory Riders LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Germany’s SAVAGE, Glory Riders, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Hailing from Bavaria, SAVAGE formed in 2019 and promptly began solidifying their aesthetic. Then a trio, SAVAGE’s sound remained firmly within the 1980s, and specifically on the darker and more dangerous side of the Sunset Strip – namely W.A.S.P. and early Mötley Crüe. The first sinful fruit was borne with their self-titled debut EP, which was recorded at the end of 2021 and then self-released during the following summer. Strictly DIY from mixing and mastering to promotion and distribution, Savage showed that SAVAGE had the fire already raging: word of mouth spread worldwide, the record nearly sold out, and work had already begun on their debut full-length!

Now with the addition of rhythm guitarist Alex “Axel” Warrior, SAVAGE have at least developed into the (fuck-like-a) beast they always aimed for, and are prepared to deliver a bound-to-be-classic debut album: Glory Riders. Almost presciently titled, Glory Riders soon becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy of dirty and raw metal – or, as the band rightly liken it, MEAN HEAVY METAL. From sound and spirit on down to production and overall attitude, SAVAGE have the sleaziest side of classic American metal down COLD…or, should that be “fiery”? Indeed, even with the categorically cruising mid-tempo at which they move, SAVAGE positively ooze energy every single second here; hooks and heaviness take equal weight, and there’s just the right amount of spaciousness here (ala W.A.S.P.’s nigh-untouchable opening trio of albums) to lend moodiness and mystery to the band’s stadium-ready bravura. Neither flashy nor rudimentary, Glory Riders is simply stripped-down and muscular where it needs to be, keeping emphasis on the songwriting (and solos!) and letting SAVAGE’s irresistible attitude take hold.

Without hyperbole, SAVAGE have hereby thrown down the gauntlet for any band, ever, attempting to invoke the sound & spirit of the aforementioned glory years of W.A.S.P., and Mötley Crüe. Further references include classic Twisted Sister, early Lizzy Borden, Halloween, Impaler, and even Coup d’état-era Plasmatics, but one listen to Glory Riders and you’ll be convinced that these still-young gods are the REAL fucking DEAL!

DVP 274 Venator -Paradiser … extended MLP/MCD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to repress VENATOR’s debut ep Paradiser on MLP, MCD and cassette format.

Austria has many a exciting new talents in traditional metal, one of them being VENATOR! Paradiser features killer, era-authentic artwork reminiscent of Mausoleum Records’ mid-‘80s heyday and is VENATOR’s entry with three moody ‘n’ melodic tracks which have a subtly anthemic quality; just as equally, one can feel the chill of night blow across Paradiser. The uniquely retro-futuristic production simply accentuates the atmospheric push and pull.

For the repress, VENATOR recorded three additional raw tracks, one new original as well as two cover tunes.

DVP 267 Farscape – Purged and Forgotten LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present FARSCAPE’s long-awaited fourth album, Purged and Forgotten, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Formed in 1998, Brazil’s FARSCAPE helped lead the charge for the neo-retro thrash resurgence in their homeland, which continues unabated to this day. A slew of releases came in 2001 – two demos, and respective splits with Atomic Roar and Vexed – but it was the 2003 debut album Demon’s Massacre where FARSCAPE first (and fully) stamped their name on the international metal map. While their contemporaries took slicker or more technical routes with their thrash, the quartet’s defiantly flew the flag of hate raised by Kreator during the mid/late ‘80s; in fact, vocalist/guitarist Witchcaptor could be a dead-ringer for classic Mille. During all this, all four members – amazingly, THE SAME LINEUP to this day – pursued other equally archaic metals with the likes of Diabolic Force, Atomic Roar, Apokalyptic Raids, Sodomizer, and later Whipstriker, further sowing the seeds of influence in their native Brazil and abroad. Two more albums followed, 2006’s Killers on the Loose and 2013’s Primitive Blitzkrieg, as well as a handful of short-length releases, but FARSCAPE essentially went on hiatus following that third album.

Now, a full decade since their last official recordings, FARSCAPE return with arguably their best album yet, Purged and Forgotten. After an eerie (and quite surprisingly melodic) intro, the fire & fury of classic Teutonic thrash is felt – and, by proxy, which they helped shape in a way most Brazilian so many years ago – but equally burning are some new, ever-so-subtle twists on that noble idiom. Without ever quite going fully “slick” nor “tech,” FARSCAPE here manage to honorably defy the Teutonic template: a more pronounced emphasis on leads, alternating between the eerily melodic and the tensely harmonic; tiny touches of atmospheric synth underneath the ripping riot of violence, further emphasizing the eerie; and in Witchcaptor’s charismatic snarl, an equally surprising number of thinking-outside-the-box patterns as well as layering, giving Purged and Forgotten an unusual, almost-“hall of mirrors” aspect. Elsewhere, the quartet’s songwriting locates that sweet spot between the linear and the twisted, not quite resorting to standard verse/chorus structures nor going overboard into the overly complicated. Simply, the red-eyed & rabid rush of classic FARSCAPE is accounted for, but these discerning veterans aren’t short on honorable ways to wind their characteristic sound. Purged and Forgotten? Not fucking yet!

DVP 268 Dungeon – Into The Ruins MLP/MCD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the long-awaited new mini-album of England/Germany’s DUNGEON, Into the Ruins, on CD, 12” vinyl, and cassette tape formats.

Originally formed in London, DUNGEON began their speed-thrash D-beat conquest with an aptly titled demo, Unholy Speed Attack, in 2015. A year later came the English Hell demo, released by the respected Me Saco Un Ojo Records. DUNGEON teamed up with Me Saco Un Ojo again for the release Purifying Fire mini-album in 2018, hitting a fever pitch in intensity and personality.

Now, a long five years after that last record, the hellions of DUNGEON return with another mini-album, and their most defining statement of metalpunk aggression: Into the Ruins. This MLP was recorded live over a sordid weekend in a damp Berlin bunker by engineer Max Hillebrand (Vasseur, Children) in September 2022. Featuring five filthy tracks across 22 minutes, Into the Ruins sees DUNGEON dig deeper into destruction, with evermore extreme influences bleeding into their sound. Their berserker energies summon Sodom and violent ‘80s thrash as well as Morbid Angel, Mercyful Fate, and Raped Ass-era Anti Cimex among other aural terrors, all merging into DUNGEON’s signature explosive sound. The Venom/Discharge/Priest foundation is still present, but warped and perverted to an even greater degree.

Into the Ruins is no doubt the work of one, all-pistons-pumping unit, but individual performances are worth noting for their contribution to the black (w)hole. DUNGEON master Luke Drew (ex-Ekrixi) has become an unstoppable force of demented musical wizardy, his songwriting reaching new heights over 2020’s lockdown. Six-string sadist Daragh Markham (Inhuman Nature, Who Cares?) brings his most spiteful guitar attacks to date. Olivia Airey (Maggot Heart, Raze) proves why she is one of the most sought-after players in the underground, with a filthy and undeniable presence throughout the MLP. And skin-smasher Chris Parker (Venomwolf) holds these shreds of sanity together with his uncanny instinct for barbaric flair. With Hillebrand at the helm, the full spectrum assault of DUNGEON’s chaotic, destructive, and notorious live shows has been fully harnessed and unleashed across this recording, resulting in five raw blasts of heavy D-beat metal savagery. A fitting score for the imminent collapse of civilization, DUNGEON give you a glimpse Into the Ruins…

DVP 269 Fukkin’ Vengeance – Sewer Surge LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Poland’s FUKKIN’ VENGEANCE, Sewer Surge, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Hailing from Warsaw, Poland’s VENGEANCE – AKA FUKKIN’ VENGEANCE – were formed in 2018 by guitarist Galin Soulripper and drummer Bomber. Later on, bassist Madman from Torpor and vocalist Alberth Dust of Bestiality joined the band, and the Fukkin’ Vengeance demo was recorded and released in early 2020. After their debut live show, the band parted ways with Alberth Dust. Vikk Vandal became the new vocalist; with his contribution, FUKKIN’ VENGEANCE started to rehearse the material for their first album. In the middle of the album’s recording session, Madman left the band, and shortly after his departure, Lucifera took on the bass and laid her tracks on the album, therefore establishing the lineup.

And, at long last, that first FUKKIN’ VEGEANCE album is here: Sewer Surge, no more perfectly titled. Like a storm-blast back to 1984, FUKKIN’ VEGEANCE’s first album is a rough, raw, but also refined travelogue across ancient metals and dark, dingy landscapes: a true True Metal maniac’s album that shows shades of classic Tokyo Blade, Living Death, OZ, Iron Angel, and Abattoir as well as the deepest dungeons of the NWOBHM. And yet, what really puts these Poles over is the absolutely electric personality – dirty as fuck and definitely slumming it up in those sewers, but strangely, invigoratingly DESPERATE and utterly going for the glory. Of course, all this aplomb would be for naught if they didn’t have the songs to back it up, and Sewer Surge positively bristles with one street-level anthem after another: the energy is always there, whether it’s a sewer-strutting mid-tempo or (more often) a long-live-the-loud speed metalled charge. But, lest one think that FUKKIN’ VENGEANCE are simply rivetheaded and only rivetheaded, there’s a tasteful incorporation of moody melody into their surprisingly spacious riffing, elevating them above their more strictly retro-minded contemporaries and more so driving home the point that the sewer is indeed one of the darkest (and dankest) places around. Feel their Sewer Surge post-haste!

DVP 275 Ritvs – Der Tag Naht LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present RITVS’ striking debut album, Der Tag Naht, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

RITVS may be new in name, but their history starts earlier. Under the preceding band name Vvlva, the band released a couple albums and a couple EPs of studiously vintage early hard rock / proto-metal. And the German quintet continue this backwards-looking path with the new moniker RITVS as a “new” old approach: exquisitely rustic late ‘70s sounds spanning hard rock, prog, AOR, and even late-days krautrock.

This exciting new chapter begins with Der Tag Naht, RITVS’ debut under that moniker. This time, the Aschaffenburg band decided to only sing in their native German, which both pushes their lyrical boundaries and has a significant impact on their sound. The mostly narrative lyrics take the listener into dark and abysmal worlds that sometimes remind us more of our own world than what we wish for, much like so many great works of ‘70s science fiction did. Dazzling and dynamic in equal measure, the roaring Hammond organ shapes RITVS’ characteristic sound, which equally rocks and rolls (and even ripples). In interaction with the warm, mossy guitar – both in sound and style – numerous licks and solo sequences are created, which are carried by a groovy rhythm section. During the album’s songwriting, the band put special emphasis on combining catchiness with progressive elements, marrying heft and heaviness with poignant and emotive passages. Truly, across the entirety of Der Tag Naht is it clearly audible that all five members took their time to find the right (rustic) sounds, always reminding of the great late 70’s without sounding dusty or tired. In fact, if there’s one way to characterize the album, it’s alive.

Earthdogs who thrill to the likes of late ‘70s Rainbow, Blue Öyster Cult, and Yes or even contemporaneous Kansas and Prof Wolfff, prepare to time-travel with RITVS’ Der Tag Naht!

DVP 276 Freeways – True Bearing LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly demanded repress of True Bearings, the debut album by Canadian FREEWAYS, on CD, 12” vinyl and music cassette formats.

CANADIAN HEAVY ROCK…WITH A NWOBHM VIBE! Indeed, Freeways are a breath of fresh, northern air. Honoring the mystical undercurrents of so much classic Canadian rock of the past, the quartet’s foundation is firm upon the hot-rockin’ dynamics of ’70s giants like UFO, Thin Lizzy, and April Wine along with the idiosyncratic twists of the unsung heroes of the NWOBHM and pub rock eras. It’s a sound that’s immediately familiar but also immediately engaging, so richly rendered are these soul-stirring odes to wanderlust, melancholia, and “Survival” itself.

Originally released in 2020 on Canadian Temple of Mystery Records, the album quickly sold out and together with their many great live performances, cemented FREEWAYS as one of the most exciting acts in the contemporary heavy rock scene.

True Bearings roves wild terrain, its push ‘n’ pull stirs the spirit, but never belabors the point; each of these seven streamlined songs is anchored to a plaintive, poignant hook, tastefully embellished with subtly delicate touches that proves Freeways as masters of mood. The quartet’s interplay is untouchable here, given that their chosen idiom is the more-or-less hard(er) end of rock, exhibiting class and poise every step of the way, but perhaps no better evinced than on the near-seven-minute vamp of “Time is No Excuse.” Thus, space and shade AND rocking hard and free coexist in the Freeways world, and the 37-minute True Bearings is a highway worth cruising time and time again.

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on cyan blue vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch.

DVP 277 Bunker 66 – Portraits of Dismay CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present Portraits of Dismay, a special singles compilation by Italian BUNKER 66, on CD format.

The Italian three-piece is known as a prolific work horse, clocking in at currently 4 full length albums. It is however their many split releases with infamous underground hordes that showcase their addiction and dedication to the underground. Graced with an incredible artwork by Claudio Scialabba, Bunker 66’s direction is made clear from the get go. Evil and raw blackened speed/thrash is what listeners can expect from them.

Since most of these 7” and 12” splits have been available on vinyl only until now, this 18 songs and 12 years spanning CD compilation has been inevitable.

DVP 278 Firmament / Midnight Prey – Gathered Under Open Skies MLP/MCD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present Gathered Under Open Skies, a special split mini-album between Germany’s FIRMAMENT and MIDNIGHT PREY, on CD and 12” vinyl formats.

Gathered Under Open Skies is indeed a special gathering, bringing together two forces that have become something like flagship bands for DYING VICTIMS: old “newcomers” FIRMAMENT and the reunited MIDNIGHT PREY. This special mini-album includes two brand-new tracks from both bands, totaling 23 minutes of vintage rock/metal moodiness.

FIRMAMENT continue their ascent following their widely acclaimed We Don’t Rise, We Just Fall debut earlier this year, having largely risen from the ashes of speed metallers Tension but bringing a different approach with them. Here, with new vocalist Marco, the five-piece further flesh out that velvety vision, taking turn-of-the-‘80s hard rock (and even a touch of equally early deathrock) down roads much more melancholic and emotive. You might even shed a tear while rocking out to their two fistbangers here; wherever you wanna go, FIRMAMENT will take you there. And tears may’ve been shed when MIDNIGHT PREY initially called it a day in 2020, but as of last year, the power-trio are back in action and, this summer, released a two-song tape to pick up right where they left off with their modern-classic Uncertain Times LP. Those two songs are provocatively titled – “Black Cat” and “Sword and Shield” – and between them, MIDNIGHT PREY keep that clean-yet-dirty surge that’s equal parts punk, rock, and metal but totally unique. And considering the epic lengths these two tracks go to, the future suggests more splendors to come…

Graced with gorgeous cover art, Gathered Under Open Skies is a borderless realm where hard rockers, punks, metalheads, and general weirdoes can all roam. FIRMAMENT and MIDNIGHT PREY care nothing for genre limitations, and together invite you into their idyll.

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on red blue vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and two woven patches.
– MCD edition with sticker and obi.

DVP 271 Drifter – Beggars Ransom 7″

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present Beggars Ransom, a new two-track 7” by DRIFTER from the USA.

ATTENTION PANHANDLERS…!

Just when you thought the dust had settled, Drifter return, whipping the very horse they rode in on. And this time, they’re fit to drink the whole well dry.

Best return the other horses to the stable… Or better yet, just put ‘em down.

Yes, Drifter plays for keeps with their new 7’’ single entitled Beggars Ransom, featuring two classy cuts sure to leave you dead in your tracks. Think what you want about today’s musical landscape, but Drifter are one of the few bands playing with a full deck.

With no fixed address, Drifter are staking claim from the US territories – which may come as a surprise upon listening. Not many bands are so capably selling NWOBHM by the pound, but Drifter seems to have, for whatever reason, gotten the best exchange rate. Not a pale imitation neither – true fans of the genre will hear right away.

DVP 272 Reckless – Sharp Magik Steel LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Colombia’s RECKLESS, Sharp Magick Steel, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Hailing from Bogota, RECKLESS are a Colombian speed metal band formed in 2019 by vocalist/guitarist W. Metalbringer. He was soon joined by bassist Jawbreaker, who brings a solid & heavy foundation to their compositions; drummer Rites666, who drives the band’s frantic pace; and guitarist Spitfire, who complements the main riffing with blistering, passionate solos. With a solid foundation of Judas Priest, Accept, Running Wild, Slayer, Exodus, and Mercyful Fate, RECKLESS soon made their public debut with the two-song Relentless Assault / Prisoner single. Through those influences, the quartet displayed a distinct synthesis of thrash metal propulsion and classic heavy metal melodicism, arriving at a style of speed metal that’s timeless and fresh.

Now, RECKLESS burst forth with a full display of their powers and potential, the debut album Sharp Magick Steel. Almost too perfectly titled, Sharp Magick Steel is a cruising and chrome-encased blast of judiciously tight aggression and invigorating, streamlined songwriting. RECKLESS here invoke their namesake by pushing the pedal to the literal metal, pumping pistons and pushing each of these eight songs forward with a locomotive thrust, but it’s equally the deceptively patient execution which makes Sharp Magick Steel cut so thoroughly: these four metal warriors are totally in control, and they make it look – and sound – almost too easy. And, from cover art (courtesy of Velio Josto) on to the authentically vintage production, RECKLESS rage like it’s 1988!

Fans of the aforementioned as well as classic Annihilator, Jag Panzer, Artillery, and Germany’s Paradox are wholeheartedly encouraged to taste RECKLESS’ Sharp Magick Steel!

DVP 273 Savage – Glory Riders LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Germany’s SAVAGE, Glory Riders, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Hailing from Bavaria, SAVAGE formed in 2019 and promptly began solidifying their aesthetic. Then a trio, SAVAGE’s sound remained firmly within the 1980s, and specifically on the darker and more dangerous side of the Sunset Strip – namely W.A.S.P. and early Mötley Crüe. The first sinful fruit was borne with their self-titled debut EP, which was recorded at the end of 2021 and then self-released during the following summer. Strictly DIY from mixing and mastering to promotion and distribution, Savage showed that SAVAGE had the fire already raging: word of mouth spread worldwide, the record nearly sold out, and work had already begun on their debut full-length!

Now with the addition of rhythm guitarist Alex “Axel” Warrior, SAVAGE have at least developed into the (fuck-like-a) beast they always aimed for, and are prepared to deliver a bound-to-be-classic debut album: Glory Riders. Almost presciently titled, Glory Riders soon becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy of dirty and raw metal – or, as the band rightly liken it, MEAN HEAVY METAL. From sound and spirit on down to production and overall attitude, SAVAGE have the sleaziest side of classic American metal down COLD…or, should that be “fiery”? Indeed, even with the categorically cruising mid-tempo at which they move, SAVAGE positively ooze energy every single second here; hooks and heaviness take equal weight, and there’s just the right amount of spaciousness here (ala W.A.S.P.’s nigh-untouchable opening trio of albums) to lend moodiness and mystery to the band’s stadium-ready bravura. Neither flashy nor rudimentary, Glory Riders is simply stripped-down and muscular where it needs to be, keeping emphasis on the songwriting (and solos!) and letting SAVAGE’s irresistible attitude take hold.

Without hyperbole, SAVAGE have hereby thrown down the gauntlet for any band, ever, attempting to invoke the sound & spirit of the aforementioned glory years of W.A.S.P., and Mötley Crüe. Further references include classic Twisted Sister, early Lizzy Borden, Halloween, Impaler, and even Coup d’état-era Plasmatics, but one listen to Glory Riders and you’ll be convinced that these still-young gods are the REAL fucking DEAL!

DVP 274 Venator -Paradiser … extended MLP/MCD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to repress VENATOR’s debut ep Paradiser on MLP, MCD and cassette format.

Austria has many a exciting new talents in traditional metal, one of them being VENATOR! Paradiser features killer, era-authentic artwork reminiscent of Mausoleum Records’ mid-‘80s heyday and is VENATOR’s entry with three moody ‘n’ melodic tracks which have a subtly anthemic quality; just as equally, one can feel the chill of night blow across Paradiser. The uniquely retro-futuristic production simply accentuates the atmospheric push and pull.

For the repress, VENATOR recorded three additional raw tracks, one new original as well as two cover tunes.

DVP 283 Iron Curtain – Savage Dawn LP/CD/T-Shirt

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present IRON CURTAIN’s highly anticipated fifth album, Savage Dawn, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

For nearly 20 years now, Spanish metal inquisition IRON CURTAIN have been stalwart defenders of the faith. With a discography that includes four full-lengths and twice as many EPs, splits, and demos, IRON CURTAIN’s ever-sturdy sound was forged in the fires of the early ‘80s: largely nodding to the eternal Motörhead as well as Tank, but also Canadian gods like Exciter and Razor, to the Teutonic might of early Iron Angel and Grave Digger, to Scandinavian gods OZ and Heavy Load, to cult American icons Abattoir and Savage Grace, and the shores of Britannia with the likes of Diamond Head, Raven, and Girlschool. And with the DYING VICTIMS release of career highpoint Danger Zone in 2019, that sound’s become even more rocking than ever.

After a quick-hitting mini-album (again through DYING VICTIMS) titled Metal Gladiator whereby the band presented the new alongside re-recordings of the old, IRON CURTAIN return to assume their throne with Savage Dawn. Doubtlessly (and vividly!) displayed by its photographic cover art courtesy of Daniel Rabandan, Savage Dawn is indeed a new dawn for IRON CURTAIN: a concerted return to their rough-hewn roots, only spit-shined with the gleaming chrome that’s come to define them in recent years. Thus does Savage Dawn exhibit a unique dichotomy: their ancient metal’s more juiced-up than ever, but the craggy edges come through in the content while the form is powerfully professional – “slick” only in the very best sense, with mixing by the esteemed Javi Félez (Teitanblood, Destroyer 666, Graveyard) and mastering by the equally esteemed Jaime Gómez Arellano (Ghost, Satan, Mayhem) providing that punch. As such, across these ten new tracks (anthemically presaged by “Rattlesnake” on Metal Gladiator, as vintage four-piece Motörheaded as it comes) do we hear IRON CURTAIN throw the likes of classic Riot, Jaguar, and Running Wild into their by-now-characteristic blender, with leads and melodies more soaring than ever.

Cool songs, catchy choruses, straightforward riffs, and pure HEAVY METAL with all killers and no fillers – what more do you need?! IRON CURTAIN drop the biggest sledgehammer with Savage Dawn!

DVP 284 Toxikull – Under the Southern Light LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present TOXIKULL’s highly anticipated third album, Under the Southern Light, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Born and raised under the hot & blinding southern light of Portugal’s capital Lisbon, TOXIKULL took off in 2016 and have backed down since: a tumult from the Atlantic, rising to take the world by storm. With two full-lengths, an EP, and a collection of singles, full of incredible guestsfrom bands such as Skull Fist and Crystal Viper under their belts, TOXIKULL’s taunting, fearless attitude has conquered the European heavy metal underground. Now, after speedmetal-intensive Cursed and Punished in 2019 (which DYING VICTIMS later released on vinyl), they now shift gears with Under the Southern Light, present amore mature, melodic, yet thankfully still-rough version of themselves.

Stomping and strutting with absolutely authentic mid/late ‘80s swagger, Under the Southern Light is an unabashed throwback to the era where heavy metal ruled the airwaves and arenas alike. Some might’ve doubted whether such Sunset Stripping sounds could come from TOXIKULL after the all-pistons-pumping speed metal overdrive of Cursed and Punished, but the ten tracks comprising the 41-minute Under the Southern Light are all anthems in the making: larger than life, heavy and spacious, moody and dynamic. Gleaming with their brightest chrome yet, TOXIKULL here invoke the quintessential likes of ‘80s Ozzy Osbourne, Dio, Judas Priest, Accept, Saxon, Manowar, Black Sabbath, WASP, Ratt, Scorpions, Picture, Germany’s Warlock, America’s Icon, France’s Sortilege, and many more. But, instead of pastiche or hero worship, Under the Southern Light is more so a tableau of TOXIKULL’s personal experiences in the world, whereby they rearrange all these classic archetypes into a laser-focused theme on the duality of living in the Southern lands of Europe, in places with so much light, with so much joy and potential, but at the same time, with such scarcity of opportunities, no future, and infested with shadows. “The light that feeds is the same light that burns,” says vocalist Lex Thunder. “And the light that makes you dream is the same light that chains you down and keeps you close to the shadows.”

Bright & burning-hot metal pumping blood from a (metal) heart of darkness, Under the Southern Light takes the party down dark, dirty back streets…dare you drink with TOXIKULL?

DVP 285 Coltre – To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present COLTRE’s highly anticipated debut album, To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

COLTRE are a heavy metal band based in London, formed in the summer of 2019 when lead guitarist Daniel Sweed and guitarist/vocalist Marco Stamigna crossed paths at the same university. Bassist Max Graves, who also attended the same university, soon joined the lineup. The trio’s shared passion and creative ideas laid the groundwork for their debut release, the EP Under The Influence.

Between September and November of 2019, COLTRE diligently worked on the EP, initially developed as a four-track mini-album. In December of the same year, they released the single “Crimson Killer.” Under The Influence made its debut in February 2020, initially in a self-released CD format, a true DIY edition. The EP’s success caught the attention of DYING VICTIMS, who sought to collaborate with the band. This collaboration resulted in the re-release of Under The Influence in multiple formats, including an additional track (the song “Fight”), in July. The year 2020 concluded with the addition of Edoardo Mariotti to the lineup, taking on the role of drummer for the band.

With the quartet now complete, COLTRE embarked on the arrangement and development of songs that would ultimately become their debut album, To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes. If the moody metallic majesty of Under The Influence was a portent of things to come, then To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes takes everything to the next level. COLTRE’s charismatic sound is still in place, thankfully – dark ‘n’ mysterious riffs, vigorously galloping rhythms, epic-yet-direct compositions, and the sage-like pipes of Stamigna atop it all – but there’s crucial distinctions here. For one, there’s a crisper sound at play across the LP; the recording’s sharper yet still rustic, perhaps a bit more hard rock in style than the NWOBHM of its predecessor. As such, the band suitably sound even livelier and more locked-in than before, with Mariotti’s many-armed drumming in particular guiding COLTRE to new destinations (and dungeons, and battlefields!). Further, their songwriting still hovers around six minutes per track, but everything feels more compact without losing the latent epicness. Most crucially, there’s a strut and swagger across To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes that’s IMPOSSIBLE to deny, such on the Tubeway Army-spoofing “Friends Aren’t Electric.”

One could still be mistaken for thinking COLTRE were some unearthed relic from the original NWOBHM movement, so hot-rockin’ is their swords-aloft surge, evoking high fantasy and urban grit in equal measure, but most importantly retaining that pivotal rock ‘n’ roll thrust Thin Lizzy largely gifted to that movement. But, with increased dynamic interplay and impossibly stronger songs, To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes wipes the slate clean and casts COLTRE as new “old” monarchs in the making!

Dying Victims Productions is proud to announce the following new releases:

DVP 275 Ritvs – Der Tag Naht LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present RITVS’ striking debut album, Der Tag Naht, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

RITVS may be new in name, but their history starts earlier. Under the preceding band name Vvlva, the band released a couple albums and a couple EPs of studiously vintage early hard rock / proto-metal. And the German quintet continue this backwards-looking path with the new moniker RITVS as a “new” old approach: exquisitely rustic late ‘70s sounds spanning hard rock, prog, AOR, and even late-days krautrock.

This exciting new chapter begins with Der Tag Naht, RITVS’ debut under that moniker. This time, the Aschaffenburg band decided to only sing in their native German, which both pushes their lyrical boundaries and has a significant impact on their sound. The mostly narrative lyrics take the listener into dark and abysmal worlds that sometimes remind us more of our own world than what we wish for, much like so many great works of ‘70s science fiction did. Dazzling and dynamic in equal measure, the roaring Hammond organ shapes RITVS’ characteristic sound, which equally rocks and rolls (and even ripples). In interaction with the warm, mossy guitar – both in sound and style – numerous licks and solo sequences are created, which are carried by a groovy rhythm section. During the album’s songwriting, the band put special emphasis on combining catchiness with progressive elements, marrying heft and heaviness with poignant and emotive passages. Truly, across the entirety of Der Tag Naht is it clearly audible that all five members took their time to find the right (rustic) sounds, always reminding of the great late 70’s without sounding dusty or tired. In fact, if there’s one way to characterize the album, it’s alive.

Earthdogs who thrill to the likes of late ‘70s Rainbow, Blue Öyster Cult, and Yes or even contemporaneous Kansas and Prof Wolfff, prepare to time-travel with RITVS’ Der Tag Naht!

DVP 276 Freeways – True Bearing LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly demanded repress of True Bearings, the debut album by Canadian FREEWAYS, on CD, 12” vinyl and music cassette formats.

CANADIAN HEAVY ROCK…WITH A NWOBHM VIBE! Indeed, Freeways are a breath of fresh, northern air. Honoring the mystical undercurrents of so much classic Canadian rock of the past, the quartet’s foundation is firm upon the hot-rockin’ dynamics of ’70s giants like UFO, Thin Lizzy, and April Wine along with the idiosyncratic twists of the unsung heroes of the NWOBHM and pub rock eras. It’s a sound that’s immediately familiar but also immediately engaging, so richly rendered are these soul-stirring odes to wanderlust, melancholia, and “Survival” itself.

Originally released in 2020 on Canadian Temple of Mystery Records, the album quickly sold out and together with their many great live performances, cemented FREEWAYS as one of the most exciting acts in the contemporary heavy rock scene.

True Bearings roves wild terrain, its push ‘n’ pull stirs the spirit, but never belabors the point; each of these seven streamlined songs is anchored to a plaintive, poignant hook, tastefully embellished with subtly delicate touches that proves Freeways as masters of mood. The quartet’s interplay is untouchable here, given that their chosen idiom is the more-or-less hard(er) end of rock, exhibiting class and poise every step of the way, but perhaps no better evinced than on the near-seven-minute vamp of “Time is No Excuse.” Thus, space and shade AND rocking hard and free coexist in the Freeways world, and the 37-minute True Bearings is a highway worth cruising time and time again.

DVP 277 Bunker 66 – Portraits of Dismay CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present Portraits of Dismay, a special singles compilation by Italian BUNKER 66, on CD format.

The Italian three-piece is known as a prolific work horse, clocking in at currently 4 full length albums. It is however their many split releases with infamous underground hordes that showcase their addiction and dedication to the underground. Graced with an incredible artwork by Claudio Scialabba, Bunker 66’s direction is made clear from the get go. Evil and raw blackened speed/thrash is what listeners can expect from them.

Since most of these 7” and 12” splits have been available on vinyl only until now, this 18 songs and 12 years spanning CD compilation has been inevitable.

DVP 278 Firmament / Midnight Prey – Gathered Under Open Skies MLP/MCDImageImage

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present Gathered Under Open Skies, a special split mini-album between Germany’s FIRMAMENT and MIDNIGHT PREY, on CD and 12” vinyl formats.

Gathered Under Open Skies is indeed a special gathering, bringing together two forces that have become something like flagship bands for DYING VICTIMS: old “newcomers” FIRMAMENT and the reunited MIDNIGHT PREY. This special mini-album includes two brand-new tracks from both bands, totaling 23 minutes of vintage rock/metal moodiness.

FIRMAMENT continue their ascent following their widely acclaimed We Don’t Rise, We Just Fall debut earlier this year, having largely risen from the ashes of speed metallers Tension but bringing a different approach with them. Here, with new vocalist Marco, the five-piece further flesh out that velvety vision, taking turn-of-the-‘80s hard rock (and even a touch of equally early deathrock) down roads much more melancholic and emotive. You might even shed a tear while rocking out to their two fistbangers here; wherever you wanna go, FIRMAMENT will take you there. And tears may’ve been shed when MIDNIGHT PREY initially called it a day in 2020, but as of last year, the power-trio are back in action and, this summer, released a two-song tape to pick up right where they left off with their modern-classic Uncertain Times LP. Those two songs are provocatively titled – “Black Cat” and “Sword and Shield” – and between them, MIDNIGHT PREY keep that clean-yet-dirty surge that’s equal parts punk, rock, and metal but totally unique. And considering the epic lengths these two tracks go to, the future suggests more splendors to come…

Graced with gorgeous cover art, Gathered Under Open Skies is a borderless realm where hard rockers, punks, metalheads, and general weirdoes can all roam. FIRMAMENT and MIDNIGHT PREY care nothing for genre limitations, and together invite you into their idyll.

DVP 271 Drifter – Beggars Ransom 7″

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present Beggars Ransom, a new two-track 7” by DRIFTER from the USA.

ATTENTION PANHANDLERS…!

Just when you thought the dust had settled, Drifter return, whipping the very horse they rode in on. And this time, they’re fit to drink the whole well dry.

Best return the other horses to the stable… Or better yet, just put ‘em down.

Yes, Drifter plays for keeps with their new 7’’ single entitled Beggars Ransom, featuring two classy cuts sure to leave you dead in your tracks. Think what you want about today’s musical landscape, but Drifter are one of the few bands playing with a full deck.

With no fixed address, Drifter are staking claim from the US territories – which may come as a surprise upon listening. Not many bands are so capably selling NWOBHM by the pound, but Drifter seems to have, for whatever reason, gotten the best exchange rate. Not a pale imitation neither – true fans of the genre will hear right away.

DVP 280 Stress Angel – Punished by Nemesis LP/CD

On March 15, 2024, Dying Victims Productions & Stygian Black Hand will unchain the highly anticipated sophomore full-length from Stress Angel, “Punished by Nemesis”. LP out in US on Stygian Black Hand and EU on Dying Victims Productions. CD out worldwide on Dying Victims Productions.

With the flames of the Bursting Church still ravaging the minds and turntables of its parishioners, Stress Angel throw another scalding 40 minutes of maniacal deathrash into the blaze!

At the forefront, the songwriting on “Punished by Nemesis” demonstrates the maturation (or putrefaction) of Stress Angel’s already established sound, driving deeper into the twisted corridors of death, thrash, and first wave black metal. Weaving within, between, and beyond these classifications, the countless riffs on this album solidify Stress Angel’s reputation as not only wizened practitioners of the craft, but innovators as well.

Leading the punishment, drummer/vocalist Manny Sores continues his campaign of old metal piledriving with a thunderous performance that forces heads to bang and eventually roll (as a privileged few who have witnessed his mastercraft live can attest), while his tormented screams expose sickening truths about those who don the cloth and preach the holy word. Session soldier Hank S. Blackyard also returns on bass with his now-signature grim and gristly tone, beefing up the already muscular strings laid out with a butcher’s precision by guitarist Nicolai Orifice. All the while, the warm, familiar production evokes a feeling not unlike what one may have experienced dropping the needle on “Mental Funeral” or putting a dub of “Anno Domini” in the tape deck for the first time 35 years ago.

Hear the Jericho trumpet blare to herald “Punished by Nemesis”, a necessary evil for those who crave to be punished by authentic thrashing metal of death. In their own words, Stress Angel state, “‘Punished By Nemesis’ aims only to torment and abuse your already demented existence”. Recommended for fans of Autopsy, Tormentor, Old, and Aura Noir.

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on oxblood vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch.

DVP 286 Aardvark – Tough Love LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Australia’s AARDVARK, Tough Love, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Not to be confused with the cult ‘70s prog band, Australia’s AARDVARK are a classic heavy metal quartet hailing from Melbourne. Born from a desire to bring the masses together with the biting forces of power and honesty, AARDVARK aim to prove there is weight to sincerity and strength in vulnerability. The band’s twin-guitar attack keeps fists pumping with tough-yet-melodic riffs, while their thunderous rhythm section drives the tank forward with unyielding brawn.

Formed in 2021, AARDVARK burst onto the Australian heavy metal scene seemingly out of nowhere with an increasingly packed weekly residency at the iconic Tote Hotel in August 2023, followed quickly by a sold-out launch show for their debut 7” single. The AARDVARK hasn’t slowed down since, with a blistering run of local shows and upcoming supports in 2024 for Cirith Ungol and Riot City.

Now that tank is ready to plow down the gates with the debut album Tough Love. With its cover art encapsulating all their central themes, Tough Love proves the full potential of AARDVARK and that they band is good on their word. With nine tracks clocking in at 44 minutes, Tough Love is a compendium of songs that present a tough, masculine vulnerability, a mixture of personal anthems and mythical journeys that offer a pertinent contrast of escapism and self-reflection. With a sound somewhere between NWOBHM and traditional heavy metal, Tough Love aims to impact with a mix of mid-tempo rockers, poignant ballads, and attacking speed.

Reverential to the past but by no means blinkered by it, AARDVARK inject their own personality and panache into 1983-vintage heavy metal: moody, melodic, dynamic, and dashing. If Conan the Barbarian could shed a tear, he’d do it listening to Tough Love!

DVP 287 Armagh – Exlamation Po!nt LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present ARMAGH’s highly anticipated third album, Exclamation Po!nt, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Formed in 2012, ARMAGH are a heavy metal force based in Satanic City Warsaw and Necropolis Navis. Mixing classic heavy metal from the ’70s and ’80s with proto-black metal, ARMAGH are the creators of First Wave Only movement, which unites several Polish bands delivering old-school metal – among them, labelmates GALLOWER and SEXMAG but also Torpor, Wielki Mrok, and R.I.P. – with primal severity in their sound and message.

Truly, ARMAGH are a maniac maniac’s band, idiosyncratic mainlining such noble influences as Thin Lizzy, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Motörhead, KISS, Manilla Road, early Slayer and Megadeth, W.A.S.P, Bathory, Dissection, Running Wild, KAT, and the NWOBHM in general into something authentically rustic and effortlessly unique. But it was their second album, Serpent Storm – originally self-released in 2022, but then released on vinyl the next year by DYING VICTIMS – where they had their breakout moment. A true record collector’s record, Serpent Storm displayed its power and personality at every turn, coming from an alien place – one where Battle Cry, Another Perfect Day, Haunting the Chapel, Chinatown, Under the Sign of the Black Mark, and Born Again all simultaneously play in perfect, hellish harmony – but evincing a wild and weird but never belabored alchemy that was simply peerless.

Now, two years later, ARMAGH stir up their cauldron once again with their third album, Exclamation Po!nt. This record features a wholly reconstructed lineup, with founding frontman/guitarist Galin Soulreaper now joined by fellow guitarist Vikk Vandall, bassist Tom CultCommander, and drummer Al Atom Smasher. As such, it’s a far more collaborative effort than the largely Soulripper-written Serpent Storm, with each new member adding their own fiery flair to an altogether less-immediate but much-more-mysterious album: Tom CultCommander’s spacey & hypnotic bass work (a Hawkwind influence is detectable across the record, as is a faint whiff of Rush), Vandall’s impulsive & spring-loaded leads, and the jazzy, Bill Ward-esque drumming of Atom Smasher. Less is indeed MORE here!

Just as wild and weird as its mighty predecessor but perhaps eating subtler, sweeter fruits, the deliberately demonstrative Exclamation Po!nt dives deeply into moodier and mustier waters, sounding impossibly older than even Serpent Storm. It’s all unmistakably ARMAGH, but if LP#3 proves anything (and loudly), it’s that these Polish maniacs are operating at the height of their powers – and, again, as a full band this time. No dynamic is too severe, no construct too off-kilter, no speed shunned: with greater emphasis on harmony vocals and Soulreaper’s lonely-warlock tones guiding the listener into a misty, mystical wonder-world, Exclamation Po!nt weaves a plaintive-yet-powerful spell that traverses the whole spectrum of human experience. And perhaps it’s there that ARMAGH in general and Exclamation Po!nt in particular excels – that it’s undeniably human in construction and execution, but its journey (and destination) is otherworldly to the splendorous extreme. Or, cutting out the fancy words, what we have here is heartfelt, handmade heavy metal: no modern, no trends, no way!

No longer the “sleeper hit of the year,” ARMAGH are prepared to punctuate “best of 2024” conversations already with Exclamation Po!nt!

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on splatter vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch.

DVP 279 Kontact – Full Contact LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present KONTACT’s highly anticipated debut album, Full Contact, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Borne out of metal and bred for the purpose of learning, The Alien (ex-Blackrat) conceived of KONTACT with then-bandmate Sven Nilson (Antichrist [Sweden], ex-Mystik). A surrogate cult of memberz was necessitated by the great dying of 2020AD, during which The Alien was imprisoned in its home continent of “Canada,” where the group yet persistz. Joined by Matt B1257+12Z (Traveler) and Morh Morf Xela (Hrom) on guitarz, as well as a yet-unidentified force “Unknown” (Chieftain) on drumz, KONTACT began broadcasting obscure and ancient signalz throughout the underground, influenced by the mythic teachingz of Manilla Road, Accept, Master’s Hammer, and otherz.

Now finally ready for transmission, Full Contact is KONTACT’s primum opus, a compendium of stellar hymnz meant to hasten the arrival of the world beyond. Bent backwardz yet strangely (or eerily) approachable, Full Contact inhabits a neon-hazed utopia/dystopia where sleaze metal fuses DNA with tech-thrash – where busyness and commerce collide in resplendent sci-fi dayglo. “Weird” and “wild” are merely human wordz to describe KONTACT’s highly idiosyncratic approach, but to them, such loaded terms exist in star-planes far, far from their orbit. Rather, the eight clusters of crushing & collapsing tonez and robot/reptilian vocalz – in other words, eight “songs” – flow with a finesse that seems second nature; hookz are thus immediate, but not always easy. KONTACT make this metal for themselvez, and you listen. You might then take on a transformation: an astral vampire, an emperor of dreams, a bloodchild, a watcher at the edge of time, or simply one into heavy leather. All is possible here, as infinite as the stained-glass synthz percolating across the album. Either way, you WILL feel the force of Full Contact head on…or head off!

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on ultra clear vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch.

DVP 281 Boundless Chaos – Sinister Upheaval LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present BOUNDLESS CHAOS’ highly anticipated debut album, Sinister Upheaval, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Hailing from Germany, the land ever brimming with ancient thrash metals, BOUNDLESS CHAOS was begotten in the year of 2017 when M.F., P.K, T.B., and M.J. heaved bloody deathrash straight up from the ashes of hellfire. With a brutal barrage of drums, slashing guitars, and throbbing bass-lines, they unapologetically worship the sound of the old. In 2019, E.M. completed the force. Now whole, BOUNDLESS CHAOS have been spitting the hellish gospel of chaos, upheaval, fire, and antifascism across an EP in 2020 and then two splits in 2020 – one with Idle Ruin, the second with fellow Germans Reign in Blood.

Still, the best was yet to come, and it’s now arrived in BOUNDLESS CHAOS’ debut album, Sinister Upheaval. Aptly titled, Sinister Upheaval is a ravaging onslaught of deathened thrash built upon a blazing foundation of early Dark Angel, Possessed, Texas’ Devastation, Sepultura’s Schizophrenia, and of course, Sodom’s Persecution Mania (and even Agent Orange!). Here, BOUNDLESS CHAOS stick to their tried ‘n’ true formula, but simply maximize the muscle and tighten the execution; when graced with a well-rounded (yet requisitely dirty) production, the result is nothing short of powerful. And adding to the CHAOS is Malte Gericke (Sijjin, ex-Necros Christos), who does guest vocals on “Guillotine.” No gimmicks, no modernity, no non-metal influences – just straightforward & straight-ahead THRASH METAL from the unholy years of 1986 and ’87, torched to a crisp, and set to conflagrate YOU!

DVP 282 Heavy Sentence – Warriors of Madness 7″

DYING VICTIMS is proud to present a new 7” EP from HEAVY SENTENCE titled Warriors of Madness.

It’s been nearly three years from their celebrated Bang to Rights debut album, but HEAVY SENTENCE are back with DYING VICTIMS for a quick-hitting and heavily satisfying 7” titled Warriors of Madness. Featuring three brand-new & exclusive tracks, Warriors of Madness maintains all the charm of that first full-length – deceptively energetic mid-tempo HEAVY METAL roughened up by the spectre of punk, much like those early days of the NWOBHM – but switches gears slightly by “slicking up” that street-level throb with a production style that’s thick and clean and yet somehow dirtier than the already exquisitely dirty Bang to Rights. As expected, either way, HEAVY SENTENCE keep proceedings as anthemic as ever, with the first two tracks storming & strutting like early ‘80s Motörhead. But the price of admission is more than worth it for the B-side, “Give Yourself to the Night”: a moody “epic” at five minutes, it stalks like a midnight vampire, beckoning and commanding in equal measure. Join these Warriors of Madness post-haste!

DVP 289 Pagan Altar – Judgement of the Dead LP/CD
DVP 290 Pagan Altar – The Time Lord LP/CD


DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to reissue PAGAN ALTAR’S cult releases, Judgement of the Dead and The Time Lord, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

While the band is working hard on the upcoming new album, these reissues kick off the collaboration between the British Doom Metal pioneers PAGAN ALTAR and Dying Victims Productions. Based on the beautifully crafted releases on Canada’s Temple of Mystery, these important recordings will finally return into circulation.

Originally recorded back in 1978-79, “The Time Lord” features Pagan Altar’s earliest recordings. Two of these flawlessly executed tracks are from a 24-track recording session, and the rest of the album are early, atmospheric versions of songs that were later re-recorded on Judgement of the Dead. This LP includes a long-lost, never-heard before version of “Night Rider”, from the same era as the other songs! This is pure doom metal sorcery.

Originally recorded in 1982 during the NWOBHM movement, Pagan Altar’s debut album, Judgement of the Dead, is a timeless classic of macabre heavy/doom metal centered around magic, witchcraft, and the occult. This holy grail album is one of the purest, most magical records that were ever written, and had a tremendous influence on the heavy/doom metal scene.

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with 32 pages booklet, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on bone colored vinyl, with 32 pages booklet, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch.

DVP 291 Freeways – Dark Sky Sanctuary LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated second album of Canada’s FREEWAYS, Dark Sky Sanctuary, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

FREEWAYS are comprised of four old friends from the peripheral fringes of the greater Toronto area who decided to channel their shared love of dollar-bin Canadian hard rock records and poorly ripped recordings of NWOBHM they’ll never afford into a nearly decades-long pursuit of seeing how far they can play from home and how many drink tickets they can accumulate at a single gig. So far, that plan has produced a handful thrilling of short-lengths (on both tape and 7” format) and an absolutely stunning debut album, True Bearings, released in 2020 by the late/great Temple of Mystery Records.

And True Bearings was presciently titled: this was the sound of FREEWAYS hitting a fever pitch of hard rock glory, plaintive and poignant and positively bleeding pathos every step of the rough, wild way. That widely celebrated debut LP took the band overseas again that spring, where they were even-more-warmly received by rivetheads old and young. With the untimely closing of said label and their growing throng of fans in Europe, DYING VICTIMS stepped in to reissue True Bearings last year, setting the stage for their hotly anticipated follow-up.

At last, it’s here in the form of Dark Sky Sanctuary. Whereas the debut’s cover art (partly) forecasted its contents – cold and cutting on the surface, with a wealth of warmth lurking within that figurative RV – so does the cover art of Dark Sky Sanctuary similarly suggest its sonic arc. The effervescent elan of FREEWAYS is in full force here, except that that’s daubed in hues darker for the band and perhaps a bit thornier as a result. On Dark Sky Sanctuary, the quartet’s fueled by a fire here that sees them both exploring their busier & more aggressive side as equally as their stripped-back & pensive one. It’s difficult to truly qualify the latter as “poppier,” but it’s not impossible to view the moodier side of turn-of-the-‘80s radio rock through FREEWAYS’ unique, ever-engaging lens.

Somehow rougher and more polished, Dark Sky Sanctuary is a sonic safe haven for those who still hold hope for heavy rock as an authentically emotional artform. FREEWAYS are fully recommended for fans of Blue Öyster Cult, Wishbone Ash, Praying Mantis…and FREEWAYS!

DVP 292 Lady Beast – Lady Beast II LP

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to reissue LADY BEAST’s cult second album, Lady Beast II, on vinyl LP format.

Since 2009, LADY BEAST have been flying the flag for refined HEAVY METAL. The band hail from the Steel City of Pittsburgh, forming with firm influences ranging from Motörhead, Dio, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Mercyful Fate. From there, LADY BEAST have weaved their own unique style of metal with silky-yet-sharp harmonizing guitars and the soaring, rally-the-warriors vocals of frontwoman Deborah Levine. All the while, they’ve retained their blue-collar roots but have never forgotten the majesty of metal in its earliest, most classic form: fantasy, magic, epic adventure, and of course ANTHEMS!

While the quintet have released four full-lengths to date, it was LADY BEAST’s second album, 2015’s Lady Beast II, which could be viewed as their “breakout” moment. Released like their self-titled debut on their own Cobra Cabana Records, the original version of Lady Beast II was a vinyl edition limited to only 250 copies; the CD version followed later on Infernö Records, which closed a couple years ago. Thus, Lady Beast II has been criminally out of print, and DYING VICTIMS will now rectify that with a new vinyl version featuring remastered sound and updated cover art. Whatever year you experience it, LADY BEAST’s second album is a stormer, strutting and galloping with equal might, as instantly-hummable riffs prop up all these anthems-to-be whilst evincing a narrative flow that’s the quintessence of swords & sorcery. Of course, Levine’s vocals exude passion and power, pure & total EMOTION, and her performance here helped put LADY BEAST atop of the keep-it-true pack. Raise your sword again or for the first time with this new vinyl version of Lady Beast II!”

DVP 288 Spasms – Invocatio I MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present SPASMS’ eerie debut demo, Invocatio I, on music cassette format.

This new entity hailing from Sweden consists of veterans of the underground scene including members from acts such as Antichrist, Insane and Witchgrave. SPASMS aim for a horror-inflicting, blood-chilling raw and ugly heavy metal sound. The 3 tracks plus instrumental take you to the cemetery, invoke voodoo spells and introduce you to a maniacal midnight slasher.

DVP 283 Iron Curtain – Savage Dawn LP/CD/T-Shirt

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present IRON CURTAIN’s highly anticipated fifth album, Savage Dawn, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

For nearly 20 years now, Spanish metal inquisition IRON CURTAIN have been stalwart defenders of the faith. With a discography that includes four full-lengths and twice as many EPs, splits, and demos, IRON CURTAIN’s ever-sturdy sound was forged in the fires of the early ‘80s: largely nodding to the eternal Motörhead as well as Tank, but also Canadian gods like Exciter and Razor, to the Teutonic might of early Iron Angel and Grave Digger, to Scandinavian gods OZ and Heavy Load, to cult American icons Abattoir and Savage Grace, and the shores of Britannia with the likes of Diamond Head, Raven, and Girlschool. And with the DYING VICTIMS release of career highpoint Danger Zone in 2019, that sound’s become even more rocking than ever.

After a quick-hitting mini-album (again through DYING VICTIMS) titled Metal Gladiator whereby the band presented the new alongside re-recordings of the old, IRON CURTAIN return to assume their throne with Savage Dawn. Doubtlessly (and vividly!) displayed by its photographic cover art courtesy of Daniel Rabandan, Savage Dawn is indeed a new dawn for IRON CURTAIN: a concerted return to their rough-hewn roots, only spit-shined with the gleaming chrome that’s come to define them in recent years. Thus does Savage Dawn exhibit a unique dichotomy: their ancient metal’s more juiced-up than ever, but the craggy edges come through in the content while the form is powerfully professional – “slick” only in the very best sense, with mixing by the esteemed Javi Félez (Teitanblood, Destroyer 666, Graveyard) and mastering by the equally esteemed Jaime Gómez Arellano (Ghost, Satan, Mayhem) providing that punch. As such, across these ten new tracks (anthemically presaged by “Rattlesnake” on Metal Gladiator, as vintage four-piece Motörheaded as it comes) do we hear IRON CURTAIN throw the likes of classic Riot, Jaguar, and Running Wild into their by-now-characteristic blender, with leads and melodies more soaring than ever.

Cool songs, catchy choruses, straightforward riffs, and pure HEAVY METAL with all killers and no fillers – what more do you need?! IRON CURTAIN drop the biggest sledgehammer with Savage Dawn!

DVP 284 Toxikull – Under the Southern Light LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present TOXIKULL’s highly anticipated third album, Under the Southern Light, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Born and raised under the hot & blinding southern light of Portugal’s capital Lisbon, TOXIKULL took off in 2016 and have backed down since: a tumult from the Atlantic, rising to take the world by storm. With two full-lengths, an EP, and a collection of singles, full of incredible guestsfrom bands such as Skull Fist and Crystal Viper under their belts, TOXIKULL’s taunting, fearless attitude has conquered the European heavy metal underground. Now, after speedmetal-intensive Cursed and Punished in 2019 (which DYING VICTIMS later released on vinyl), they now shift gears with Under the Southern Light, present amore mature, melodic, yet thankfully still-rough version of themselves.

Stomping and strutting with absolutely authentic mid/late ‘80s swagger, Under the Southern Light is an unabashed throwback to the era where heavy metal ruled the airwaves and arenas alike. Some might’ve doubted whether such Sunset Stripping sounds could come from TOXIKULL after the all-pistons-pumping speed metal overdrive of Cursed and Punished, but the ten tracks comprising the 41-minute Under the Southern Light are all anthems in the making: larger than life, heavy and spacious, moody and dynamic. Gleaming with their brightest chrome yet, TOXIKULL here invoke the quintessential likes of ‘80s Ozzy Osbourne, Dio, Judas Priest, Accept, Saxon, Manowar, Black Sabbath, WASP, Ratt, Scorpions, Picture, Germany’s Warlock, America’s Icon, France’s Sortilege, and many more. But, instead of pastiche or hero worship, Under the Southern Light is more so a tableau of TOXIKULL’s personal experiences in the world, whereby they rearrange all these classic archetypes into a laser-focused theme on the duality of living in the Southern lands of Europe, in places with so much light, with so much joy and potential, but at the same time, with such scarcity of opportunities, no future, and infested with shadows. “The light that feeds is the same light that burns,” says vocalist Lex Thunder. “And the light that makes you dream is the same light that chains you down and keeps you close to the shadows.”

Bright & burning-hot metal pumping blood from a (metal) heart of darkness, Under the Southern Light takes the party down dark, dirty back streets…dare you drink with TOXIKULL?

DVP 285 Coltre – To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present COLTRE’s highly anticipated debut album, To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

COLTRE are a heavy metal band based in London, formed in the summer of 2019 when lead guitarist Daniel Sweed and guitarist/vocalist Marco Stamigna crossed paths at the same university. Bassist Max Graves, who also attended the same university, soon joined the lineup. The trio’s shared passion and creative ideas laid the groundwork for their debut release, the EP Under The Influence.

Between September and November of 2019, COLTRE diligently worked on the EP, initially developed as a four-track mini-album. In December of the same year, they released the single “Crimson Killer.” Under The Influence made its debut in February 2020, initially in a self-released CD format, a true DIY edition. The EP’s success caught the attention of DYING VICTIMS, who sought to collaborate with the band. This collaboration resulted in the re-release of Under The Influence in multiple formats, including an additional track (the song “Fight”), in July. The year 2020 concluded with the addition of Edoardo Mariotti to the lineup, taking on the role of drummer for the band.

With the quartet now complete, COLTRE embarked on the arrangement and development of songs that would ultimately become their debut album, To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes. If the moody metallic majesty of Under The Influence was a portent of things to come, then To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes takes everything to the next level. COLTRE’s charismatic sound is still in place, thankfully – dark ‘n’ mysterious riffs, vigorously galloping rhythms, epic-yet-direct compositions, and the sage-like pipes of Stamigna atop it all – but there’s crucial distinctions here. For one, there’s a crisper sound at play across the LP; the recording’s sharper yet still rustic, perhaps a bit more hard rock in style than the NWOBHM of its predecessor. As such, the band suitably sound even livelier and more locked-in than before, with Mariotti’s many-armed drumming in particular guiding COLTRE to new destinations (and dungeons, and battlefields!). Further, their songwriting still hovers around six minutes per track, but everything feels more compact without losing the latent epicness. Most crucially, there’s a strut and swagger across To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes that’s IMPOSSIBLE to deny, such on the Tubeway Army-spoofing “Friends Aren’t Electric.”

One could still be mistaken for thinking COLTRE were some unearthed relic from the original NWOBHM movement, so hot-rockin’ is their swords-aloft surge, evoking high fantasy and urban grit in equal measure, but most importantly retaining that pivotal rock ‘n’ roll thrust Thin Lizzy largely gifted to that movement. But, with increased dynamic interplay and impossibly stronger songs, To Watch With Hands To Touch With Eyes wipes the slate clean and casts COLTRE as new “old” monarchs in the making!
