Chilean death metal horde Pulverized is coming up with their debut full length via Krucyator Productions in both digital and jewel-case CD editions. The album, aptly titled as “Monuments of Misanthropy”, is slated for worldwide release on October 13, 2018.
“Devoción”, the opening track of the album is currently streaming below.
Chilean cadavers PULVERIZED awoke in the city of Santiago in 2006. They perform death metal with a strong American influence from the early ’90s, without leaving aside the essences of the glorious South American extreme metal scene. Their lyrical themes touch the thoughts about life, death, Christianity and its moral decadence in Western Society. Having two demo releases in their discography, they have already illustrated the sign of miasmic assault, that is uncontrollably fierce and absolutely petrifying.
“Monuments of Misanthropy”, the impending debut album, will lay the cornerstone of a new epoch in the band’s history. Featuring lyrics in both Spanish and English, PULVERIZED deploy unholy feelings in veins throughout the six abominably composed furious songs. In terms of sonic landscape, this album stands in a supreme point where viciousness, profanity and primitiveness are in poise.
This striking debut album will see the worldwide release on October 13, 2018 via KRUCYATOR PRODUCTIONS on Jewel Case CD and digitally. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered at DM6 Studio by Pablo Clares. Santiago, Chile.
BURNING WITCHES are not only the hottest export from the Alpine Republic, the five piece from Switzerland are also one of the most thrilling newcomers in old school heavy metal spanning the last few years – globally! The new album Hexenhammer will be released on November 9th, via Nuclear Blast Records.
Today, the band presents the cover artwork for their second studio album. This stunning was visualization created by acclaimed artist Gyula from Hungary, who has also created artwork for DESTRUCTION, ANNIHLATOR, GRAVE DIGGER, STRATOVARIUS, TANKARD and many more.
The band states:
“We are very proud to present you our new album cover for HEXENHAMMER. The topic is the Malleus Maleficarum book, that legalized the extermination of the so called ‘Witches’ in the medieval times. The justification of murder against the weak , is still a sad subject nowadays! So we wanna pay respect and remember – most of the lyrics are dealing with this dark chapter of our history as well. Of course, we also wanted a classic & mystical metal layout that reflects our music perfectly – so it is a great mix! We hope the fans will enjoy it!“
“It is not too easy to make a “metal” cover when the main character and focus is an attractive woman. It is much easier to create gory images with monsters or devils for me. But I remembered that my first original cassette was the WARLOCK Triumph and Agony’ album, so I felt very motivated to incorporate both of those aspects: some black magic & some beautiful ladies! I got some instructions and a sketch from the band – so I painted the witch and the altar first as a main focus and everybody loved the character and the feeling of the image. When I added the ghost images of the girls, it all aligned into a dark magic artwork with beautiful ladies.“

Sentient Ruin is honored to announce the debut 7″ release by San Jose CA-based ALTARS, along with Dawnbreed Records handling the release for the EU market.
On this debut demo/EP 7″ mysterious San Jose CA-based aural terrorists ALTARS spew forth a firestorm of bludgeoning grinding death metal terror which effortlessly succeeds in completely and gruesomely dismantling the listener in under ten minutes. With guitars as thick as concrete, atmospheres of utmost hatred, and a steamrolling rhythm section, Altars bring to mind the glory and hostile supremacy of historic UK death-grind like Benediction, early Carcass and Bolt Thrower while also vomiting on the listener a barrage of utter malignancy and of dark and twisted atmospheres akin to those of bands like Pseudogod and Lvcifyre.
States the band: “This 7” is the product of four friends who love old school death metal. Taking inspiration from Autopsy, Morbid Angel, Bolt Thrower, and combining it with the straightforward, no frills delivery of Napalm death and other Grindcore, this is our offering to the altar.”
1. Unholy Retribution
3. Ancient Plague
4. Black Magic
Decibel Magazine and Metal Injection have premiered two tracks from the release stating that this 7″ is “bludgeoning death metal terror” and “raw, unfiltered death metal that is unaware of trends.
