Masterminded by one of extreme metal’s most prolific artists Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Ribspreader, Revolting, Demiurg, Bone Gnawer, etc),  the concept of  “Never Ending Nightmares” dates back to 2003 when HUMANITY DELETE was originally formed. Recently resurrected, the product of Johansson’s evil genius has finally been unleashed upon the world.

“Never Ending Nightmares” is paranormal, post-apocalyptic Death Metal with Grind/Punk influences that will have you sleeping with the lights on for weeks! The cover artwork was done by Adam Geyer, with inner artwork also by Adam Geyer, as well as Ironworx Gravefix and Dzul Skam. “Never Ending Nightmares” was recorded by Rogga Johansson and mixed/mastered by Ronnie Björnström.

Future HUMANITY DELETE albums will continue with the paranormal experiences while also adding post-apocalyptic themes into the mix for a killer combination! HUMANITY DELETE is Rogga Johansson (vocals, guitars, bass, drum programming, musical composition) with lyrics penned by Jill Girardi (Dead Beat Media) and guest guitar solos from Lasse Pyykkö (Hooded Menace). You are strongly advised to make sure that closet door is closed and to check under your bed before that play button is pushed!

Chapel of Disease cover at Zombie Ritual Zine

ALTAR OF OBLIVION’s “Grand Gesture of Defiance” to be released on 9/11/12

AltarofOblivionGrand Gesture of Defiance on News Zombie RitualZine

Shadow Kingdom Records has announced that ALTAR OF OBLIVION‘s “Grand Gesture of Defiance” will be released on September 11, 2012. Label owner Tim McGrogran has this to say about the album:

ALTAR OF OBLIVION is by far the very best Heavy Metal band to come out of Denmark since MERCYFUL FATE. I wouldn’t say they sound like MERCYFUL FATE all that much apart from their very acrobatic / theatrical vocalist that has a King Diamond-esque style. If you’re looking for an emotional Heavy Metal ride, look no further than this band, they reach for the sky and touch the soul on so many different levels. The style is still very similar to their first album which is a blend of Doom Metal like CANDLEMASS and catchy machine gun riffing with big choruses and memorable songs. Old fans will not be disappointed, new fans will be floored. ALTAR OF OBLIVION deliver another masterpiece!”

DEUS OTIOSUS’ “Godless” Set for Late Summer Release on Deepsend Records

DEUS OTIOSUS Godless cover Zombie Ritual Fanzine

Danish old school death metallers DEUS OTIOSUS will release Godless on Deepsend Records in late summer 2012.
In a world where no god watches or guides, humankind is left to fend for itself like feral children. And in this world, horror and cruelty of every unspeakable kind lives and breathes amongst us. These horrors are echoed in Godless. This is old school death metal with nuances of black and thrash, creating a heavy, down-tuned force that will appease the servants of Hell while they slave for their sins.
