INQUISITION “Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm” (12″ DOUBLE LP w/ Etching & Poster)

Colored Vinyl double LP mastered at 45 RPM for the best fidelity and maximum volume possible. Side 4 has a Luciferian Baphomet laser etched in the vinyl. Comes in a deluxe custom diecut trifold packaging (‘tome’) with blue foil, parchment pages, and a large 18″ x 24″ poster of the cover artwork. This is the second release in the Tome Compendium Series mostly sold through HHR mailorder. Watch for all other Inquisition albums to receive tome treatment throughout 2012. Black Vinyl & CD also available.

INQUISITION, possessors of one of the most distinctive black metal sounds around, returns after a ominious, three-year slumber in the stygian depths with their highly anticipated fifth album, “Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrososm.” Revolving, as always, around the core duo of vocalist/guitarist Dagon and drummer Incubus, INQUISITION create fog-thick, utterly mesmerizing blackness with only two instruments and voice. “Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm,” amongst a discography already lined with classics, evokes blackest magick and esoteric mysticism, inducing trance-like states in even the sturdiest constitution – hail the “Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm”! Recommended for worshippers of INQUISITION, because no one else sounds like INQUISITION.

NUNSLAUGHTER / AGATHOCLES “Split” (7″ EP on Black Vinyl)

Only 400 on standard black wax. Selfmadegod Records is proud to release a split 7″ EP between two long running metal veterans: AGATHOCLES from Belgium and NUNSLAUGHTER from The United States.
The EP includes three recently recorded songs from Belgium’s mincecore kings (“Trail Of Despair,” “Nazional Sozial(ist) Security,” “Flanders’ Little Cesspool”) and two from the Ohio’s death metal behemoth (“To Sin Again,” “Your Soul Belongs To Me”).
Both AGATHOCLES and NUNSLAUGHTER have been around for well over 20 years and have released hundreds of similar splits, although this is the first time both bands share a recording.

GOATPENIS “Depleted Ammunition” (CD & 12″ LP)

2011 studio album on Satanic Skinhead Propaganda. 33 minutes of pulverizing, barbaric Black Grind War Metal insanity. This album takes the almost freeform chaos of the original demos, mixed with the heaviness of “Inhumanization” and creative prowess of “Biochemterrorism”.

DESOLATION ANGELS – Feels Like Thunder (12″ 5x LP Box Set w/ 7″ EP)
Cult N.W.O.B.H.M. Limited to 500 copies, 32 page booklet, 5 LP’s + 7″, all in seperate picture sleeves, 150 x gold/ black blend vinyl.

@N@L BLASPHEMY – Profane Fornication Ejaculation (CD & 12″ Gatefold LP)
“The second Anal Blasphemy full-lenght in luxurious vinyl format! Gatefold sleeve with poster included, heavy 180g vinyl. Includes also an exclusive bonustrack “Profane Fornication Manifest”. The audial filth is also partially remixed and completely remastered for this vinyl so expect pure desecration of your soul! After the disgusting debut ANAL BLASPHEMY attacks with a second full-length, continuing the depraved, unholy and ugly bestial Black Metal Filth! The new hymns present even stronger expression with the pounding session drum work of Kommander forging this album to be the best work of ANAL BLASPHEMY to date. From fast blasting to mostly mid-tempo crushing groove with some slower ritualistic parts too this album is sure to blacken every soul contaminated by its tunes. Not for fans of polished sounds or whimpy whining post-Black Metal crap, this is for all the heretics, Satanic sluts and blasphemous Satanists out there!

DECEASED – Surreal Overdose (CD)
Vinyl edition out September 2011 on Hells Headbangers!
The first release for Deceased since 2005’s As The Weird Travel On, new album Surreal Overdose is set for big things. The long-running metal maestros have kept the faith since 1985, summoning a slew of cult releases and building up an immensely dedicated fanbase that has followed the band merrily into hell and back. Now, at the dawn of 2011, King Fowley and his band of ‘bangers have returned!
Fowley will return to the drum kit for this recording, handling both drums and vocals. The band will welcome in longtime live member Shane Fuegel on guitar (replacing long time band member Mark Adams who retired from music in 2007), while Mike Smith continues on studio guitar alongside longtime bassist Les Snyder. The new record will be recorded at Assembly Line Studios in Virginia with Kevin Gutierrez engineering and King Fowley producing.

CIANIDE “Gods Of Death” (CD & 12″ Gatefold LP w/ Poster)
Comes in a glossy Gatefold jacket with large 18″ x 24″ poster of the album artwork. First 111 copies on splatter vinyl, other 389 copies on Black Vinyl.
Formed in 1988, CIANIDE’s vision was to create the heaviest Death Metal in existence… and they DID! Their 6th full-length album is yet another classic under their bullet belts! Expect no frills and no bullshit, only a continuation of the death, doom & destruction maniacs have come to expect over the last 20+ years! This Metal NEVER bends motherf@@kers and always remember, CIANIDE KILLS!!!!

NYC MAYHEM “The Metal & Crossover Days” (DOUBLE CD)

The very first complete NYC MAYHEM anthology ever done (and probably the last) with material compiled from their very first rehearsals to their very last studio recording, showcasing how the band went from pure super intense Metal to highly energetic Crossover. If your ears are not used to rough recordings, go f@@k yourself, this is not about clean sounding stuff! This is about music, feeling and creativity, NOTHING ELSE. This low-priced DOUBLE CD set features a collage of interviews, reviews, flyers, photos & band biography.

It’s an established fact that Extreme Metal has become somewhat a household word with the billions of bands around all trying to make us believe that they’re more evil than Satan himself, quite an accomplishment if you ask me… but before this somewhat tragic painting took place, there was a time when extreme Metal had a meaning because it had to be created, it had to be sculpted, it had to be built… with nearly nothing in hand! If VENOM paved the way back in 1981, the real fun started with the once mighty SLAYER pushing the limits like never before and in the process inventing the term Thrash Metal but for like any music style, it was just the beginning of more to come with the likes of SHELLSHOCK/ DARK ANGEL, HELLHAMMER, MASTER, MANTAS/ DEATH, DESTRUCTION, POSSESSED or SODOM. Still for some young Metalheads from this era it was still not enough, it was clear in their minds that the boundaries could be pushed on and on to no limits known to humanity… Bands like SEMEN OF SATAN or POISON (Ger) did it in their own way but in the process, the musicality was highly sacrificed.

By late 1984/ early 1985 in New York City, three die hard headbangers finally got their chemistry right and within a couple of months, mayhemic destruction was spread with many victims absorbing their newer poison now known as Deathcore: it was time to welcome the one and only NYC MAYHEM! Instantly, numerous sessions were recorded and traded in the highly active underground tape-trading scene. Fanzines were f@@kin’ hot on featuring this ultra fast/ intense band, with this new scene in their hands literally as people were freakin’ badly while listening to destructive numbers such as ‘Taken By Storm’, ‘Adrenalin’, ‘Ripped To Shreds’ etc. With their lineup change, the band went into a much more Hardcore direction but the Metal riffing and sheer speed were still a good part of the sound. A reasonable number of local shows were played, having in attendance people like Danny Lilker, Tom Capone and Scott Rosenfeld. Unfortunately after a year of existence this very first real Extreme Metal/ Hardcore band ceased to exist and the members chose to pursue other interesting careers with bands such as the Cro-Mags and Sick of It All. You always wondered when/ how extreme Metal was born? Now you’re gonna know about it and this will make you forget all the trendy shit around! HAIL THE MAYHEM! HAIL NYC MAYHEM!
