E standard tuning practice run. From left to right on each 1) And Then There Were None & 4) A Lesson in Violence, 2) Transylvania, 3) The Antichrist, 5) Blind Faith, 6) Septic Schizo. Mostly manageable tempos, the last two get fast/tough, but overall good mix of tremolo, down strokes, palm mutes, triplets, solos if you choose to learn them (good idea but serious effort), and overall ace riffs. #thrashmetal#hellsheadbangers#ironmaiden#exodus#kreator#sepultura#miniatures#heavymetal#slayer
NUNSLAUGHTER “The Devil's Congeries - Volume 3” now available on 2-LP, 2-CD w/ DVD and various digital formats. Ships November 29th.
Once again, HELLS HEADBANGERS opens the vaults and collects a whopping "nine" NUNSLAUGHTER 7" EPs as well as a 12" EP to answer the black prayers of the band's rabid, diehard fanbase! Entitled "The Devil's Congeries Vol. 3", this 2-LP set is the next of eight exhaustive collections that will compile every single short-length NUNSLAUGHTER vinyl release - a band whose discography is bested number-wise only by Japan's #Sabbat and Belgium's #Agathocles. NUNSLAUGHTER's best work is considered by many to be their EPs, and "The Devil's Congeries Vol. 3 "displays the band's trademark Devil Metal in all its diabolical 'n' dirty glory, collecting EPs and splits from 2003-2006: the "Christmassacre" 12"; the "Rotting" , "Satanic Sluts", "Burn the Cross" 7"s; and the band's half of splits with #Slaughter (Canada), #Goatlord (US), #Haemorrhage (Spain), #THRONEUM (Poland), #Krieg, and #BrodysMilitia. As a bonus, the CD version features the long-out-of-print live releases of "Metal Assault on Sydney," "Metal Assault on Melbourne and "Brisbane," Metal Assault on Canberra," and "Metal Assault on Adelaide," each one showcasing NUNSLAUGHTER in truly raw 'n' rowdy form. As an additional bonus, the CD version will also include the "Metal Assault on Australia" DVD, previously released by HELLS HEADBANGERS in 2005 but long out of print, making for a grand three-disc set. Topped off by an elaborate booklet archiving each EP's cover artwork and pressing information, "The Devil's Congeries Vol. 3" is mandatory metal worship!
After many requests, HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to release an exact replica of the cassette tape pressing of PROFANATICA's landmark "Weeping in Heaven" EP. Available for pre-order now, ships November 29th. As one of the very first American black metal bands, the name PROFANATICA should need no introduction, nor should their debut EP, Weeping in Heaven. Originally released in 1991 as a two-song 7" and then a year later as a four-song cassette that joined the main studio tracks with two live tracks, Weeping in Heaven rudely 'n' crudely introduced PROFANATICA to the nascent black metal underground, which was just starting to take root in Europe but had yet to develop with any potency over in the United States. This EP distilled the band's essence into a swift 'n' sacrilegious statement of intent: primitive, pounding, unrelentingly unclean and UNREAL. Thereafter, PROFANATICA's legend (and infamy) would grow... HELLS HEADBANGERS now unleashes Weeping in Heaven in its original, ultimate guise - as the four-song tape from 1992 - with every effort made to preserve the integrity of the original pressing.
ABYSMAL LORD's second LP, "Exaltation of the Infernal Cabal" now available for pre-order. 250 copies on red vinyl, 250 on black. Ships November 29th. CD, tape and t-shirt ship now.
Not once betraying their original aims, so rudely and righteously portrayed across their "Storms of Unholy Black Mass" debut EP in 2014, ABYSMAL LORD simply stick to what they do best - utilizing the classic bestial metal schematic of OTT explosion and forward propulsion and then malforming it into morbid, miasmic shapes, always angular and antagonizing at every crooked turn - and deliver it with a fury and conviction that's startling to behold. While no great changes have been made to that iron-clad aesthetic, if anything, Exaltation of the Infernal Cabal explodes with (and amazingly maintains) an urgency that somehow manages to revitalize the bestial metal idiom whilst following it to the rotten, black/white/red letter. And that's to say nothing of the absolutely unhinged and frankly bonkers guitar soloing on display here; ABYSMAL LORD are truly exploring the most depraved depths of black/death.
The throne is corrupt; there steps forward ABYSMAL LORD, to assume their rightful place. Behold their Exaltation of the Infernal Cabal and tremble before unspeakable doom.... #AbysmalLord#BestialMetal#BlackDeath#BlackMetal#HellsHeadbangers#BlackMetalVinyl
