Christian Thrash at its ultimate best is what you get here! The 3 track demo that started it all for one of the best new Christian thrash bands around, Ritual Servant! This is a very cool one time and one time only limited edition CD pressing of the very first 3 track demo as recorded by Ritual Servant.

Released only in digital format on April 30th 2016, this demo turns 3 years old on that day and in celebration we will release this special CD pressing on that day and only limited to 250 copies never to be pressed again! These 3 tracks were so special we felt the need to make a physical product to offer to the fans and collectors out there.

Check out the demo version of ‘Seven Trumpets’ below:

Like many artists, Cellar Darling have been hit hard by the Coronavirus pandemic and the associated lockdown measures and show cancellations. Rather than giving in or just asking for money without offering something in return, they’ve announced a campaign where they will provide exclusive content to fans straight from their own homes and rehearsal space, culminating in a live-streamed performance at Lucerne’s Soundfarm Studio. The campaign will begin on April 5 with a live Q&A session .

Throughout the campaign, fans can contribute by donating directly to the band. The stream itself is ‘pay-what-you-want’ and will also be available for free for those who can’t afford to contribute.

The band comment: “There’s no beating around the bush: we need your help. The recent cancellation of our European tour follows that of our shows in February and March. This means that we, like many artists and self-employed entertainment professionals, face massive expenses and a total loss of income of at least three months.

Finnish cinematic metal icons, Dark Sarah, have officially signed a worldwide contract with Napalm Records. Over the course of eight years and three epically conceptualized albums, the band has proven their standing in the scene. As a classically-educated opera singer and experimental performer, Heidi Parviainen (formerly of Amberian Dawn), created her alter ego with Dark Sarah and fascinates listeners with their talent for unique soundscapes in symbiosis with truly magical worlds.

Known for their incredible storytelling that coalesces perfectly into an unbreakable bond with their music, Dark Sarah are ready to start a new, mesmerizing journey with Napalm Records and their brand new upcoming epos, “Grim,” hitting stores on July 17.

Heidi Parviainen on the signing: “We are very happy and excited to start a new era in our band’s history and to start collaborating with Napalm Records, one of the biggest metal labels in the world! After working as an independent band for many years, we have got a good view on that path – both in good and bad. This is a new opportunity for us, which we´ll welcome with open arms!”

Who’s ready to THRASH???? Please welcome Brotality to the Rottweiler Records pack!

1 Timothy 4:12 Let no one despise your youth; instead, you should be an example to the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.

You know your mama told you “don’t judge a book by its cover,” right? That definitely applies to Brotality. Even though none of them is old enough to vote, the guys in Brotality – brothers Bryce Maopolski (17, guitar and vocals) and Reece Maopolski (16, bass and vocals), along with Liam Fenton (14, drums) – have created a band that unapologetically takes its sonic cues straight from the founding fathers of metal. With tight songwriting, muscular vocals, and crushing riffs in abundance, Brotality have created a dynamic force worthy of carrying forward the Heavy Metal moniker. They cite Mastodon, Megadeth, and Alice Cooper as influences, and it won’t take long for anyone who listens to their music to be smacked in the face with an undeniable old-school sensibility.
