Carcass-Reek_of_Putrefaction-Reissue-2008-BERC

"The album was rereleased in 2008 as part of an ongoing series of Carcass reissues to tie in with their reunion. The main album with the demo "Flesh Ripping Sonic Torment" is presented as one side of a Dualdisc, while the DVD side features the first part of an extended interview/documentary titled The Pathologist's Report Part I: Incubation. The album is presented in a 12-panel digipak with full lyrics, artwork and is sealed in a white 'medical' bag with clear sticker, ensuring that the controversial cover art is hidden."

Hieronymus_Bosch-Equivoke-2008-GRAVEWISH

New Hieronymus Bosch, finally. after 3 years of waiting, we can now get our hands on this thanks to Gravewish. I don't know if it's out in stores or only distributed at MySpace, but I know the last 2 records weren't bad at all, so this one should be alright, too.

Austrian_Death_Machine-A_Very_Brutal_Christmas-(EP)-2008-ABORTED

Re-Encoding-Nerds from Aborted gave us this brand new "EP" from Austrian Death Machine, wich never ever should have deserved an EP title, as there are just three tracks with not even 9 minutes runtime on it, it's more like a cd-single for me...

Lifelover-Konkurs-SE-2008-GRAVEWISH

"The third album of Swedish wretched souls of dark metal LIFELOVER. "Konkurs" is a fascinating album that mixes in a perfect solution both the traditional "depressive black metal" roots of the band and their well know more "avantgarde" (somebody says "bizarre"...) elements. Be prepared for a masterpiece. An album that will not be embraced by indifference at all..... as it is simply not possible to remain indifferent to this music."

Grave_Digger-Ballads_of_a_Hangman-Promo-2009-GRAVEWISH

More and more cds with 2009-streetdate arrive in the scene, and now GW follow the trend. As shitty as the cds they rip can be sometimes, but once in a while they really get a big hit. This time it's the new Grave Digger records, I'm wondering, sice when do GW have a Napalm Records supply? Nah, not that it really bother's me, because sadly, all tracks except one have Voice Over's, so I'm not going to write much here about this band. Better wait for the retail-post. Instead, I'll tell you what's new on the blog:
As you can see, the Wikipedia link's (if they exist for the band) have found their way to our blog. Also, please note the new Origin-lable. You can now sort the post's by the band's origin, maybe I'll add the lable for some older posts in the future, for now it's just for the new post. Anymore Links/infos you might want to see here? Feel free to write in the comments what's missing in your opinion.

Catamenia-VIII_The_Time_Unchained-Digipak-2008-GRAVEWISH

How could this have been missed? it's in stores for a month now, but no group really cared about it. Maybe there was already a Promo around which I missed, but it would've had Voice Over's anyway, like any other Massacre Records Promo. Luckily, GW now brought us a digipag copy of the 8th studio output from Catamenia.
