News from Bimo of VILE, Indonesian deathgrind. Recently released
"Systematic Terror Decimation" on local Dementia Records.
We want to confirm to those whom ever heard or read some news about Indonesia's VILE
"Systematic Terror Decimation" debut cassette-LP which will be re-pressed onto
CD by one of the truly extreme label from Canada, unfortunately it does shit happen...that
faggy label (the owner are a gay couple) was fucking bullshit!!! On the previous days he
offered, promised & wanted us to send him our recording master in CD-R format with
bonus tracks inside. But suddenly he canceled it all when we were on behalf of working the
material. He said that the label is belong to him & his friend. Actually he really
likes VILE but his friend doesn't. Cos' both of them have 50-50 in the funds. Of course we
have lost & wasted our money, energy & time already! They souldn't giving any
promises before they're really ready to have the funds out. So as you've seen on your
brain, he seems to prefer loving his "husband" than his responsiblity. We
thought they're a truly extreme indie label, but it was wrong after, the truth is they're
a truly extreme faggots!!!...hahaha... Perhaps on their thoughts, rather sucking a cock
than other things...hahaha... cocococock,cock,cock,..haha..
The point is just be careful if you dealing with the same kind of shit someday. Thanks for
the attention...SUPPORT THE WAR AGAINST RIP OFF!!!

In a bizarre but not altogether unlikely string of events, Jake Babylon, the band´s

project Death Fix, rumoredly more in an industrial vein. With just one week before the
release show of "King Fear", a replacement was chosen in Taneli Nyholm (of
Pandemonium Outcasts, formerly known as Candlelight death´n rollers Absurdus) - "you
played a Rickenbacker with distortion, right?!" A fellow sufferer, Antti Lindell, who
stepped in earlier to share guitar duties with that another Antti is still hanging in
there, too, seemingly in full mental and physical health.

END ALL LIFE (the following is news taken from their website)
- The ANTAUES minicd is definitely sold-out in the US
- Check out the new GRAND'S BELIAL'S KEY ep, " Tricifixion of Swine " ! After
the failure of Barbarian Wrath, we took things in hand, and here it is !
- We sadly have to cancel the release of the " Cut your Flesh and worship Satan
" LP by ANTAUES. The reason is very simple : Killjoy of Necrophagia and boss of
Baphomet Rex (doing the CD version) paid partly for the recording costs of the album, and
thus didn't want us to do a limited edition of 100 copies on vinyl
Thanx to his
stupid attitude, there won't
be a vinyl version of this excellent album, so a huge fukk off to him in the name of all
but no offence intented but for us in Metal Force think good music is
not supposed to be released in a limited number.
- ATOMIZER has finished the recording of their kult " The End of Forever "
album, a few details have to be changed in the mix, but everything else is ready. Expect
this deadly release to rape your soul in early February 2000 ! ! !
- Our fight for true Black Metal goes on ! The portugese extremists of SUMMUM MALLUM are
going to release their first official recording through us
As for now, it is unclear
wether it will be a 10 or 7'', but there won't be more than 200 copies of this one for
sure. SUMMUM MALLUM is basically just raw Black Metal, it's really hard to go further than
do with their musical tortures
The victory of Satan comes closer !
- Many of you are surely waiting for the release of the excellent " Kill for Satan
" album by Tsjuder (out through Drakkar Prods on CD). They're probably one of the 2
or 3 last real Black Metal bands from the once so glorious Norway. And we simply had to
offer them a vinyl version of this album, it will come before this summer, of course
including bonus material !
- For those of you that are in this scene for a little longer than a couple of years,
MOONBLOOD is a name you surely have a lot of respect for
Today, these german Black
Metal veterans are even more underground than they were at their beginings, and they
agreed to do an album for us, but limited to 100 copies only ! It should be out in a
couple of months, as
the mix has to be redone, but I can assure you that this album will contain pure MOONBLOOD
material, as cold, misanthropic and melancholic as ever
All hails to these dark
souls who never lost their passion for the Black Metal Kult !
- THYRANE "Symphonies of Infernality" CD has been recorded at Tico-Tico studio
and release through Woodcut Records. The album contains 8 tracks / 52 minutes of technical
& excellent black metal from one of Finland's best!!!
XRR005 - AGONY LORDS "Nihilist Passion"
THE WAIT IS OVER!!! After 10 years and two great albums - "Unions" (Reborn
Records - 1994) and "The Sun Of The Cursed" (Oz records - 1997) - the band is
back with a new opus called "Nihilist Passion". Their latest masterpiece
includes 5 new songs and 9 songs recorded live during "The Tour of the Cursed"
in 1998. This album marks also the band's debut on X-RATED RECORDS. Nihilist Passion is
the band's most mature album, showing a great sense of confidence and dark creativity, but
on the other hand it is also their most introspective album. The music is a fine mixture
of styles but with a great touch of heavy metal sounds (from gods like IRON MAIDEN and
JUDAS PRIEST to some of the newer and more brutal bands) that have influenced the band
throughout those last years of mayhem and passion. Be prepared to experience one of the
best heavy / death metal bands from Mexico and listen to the chants of the brave that fill
the air with NIHILIST PASSION.

Musical Style: Hymns Of Bombastic Death Metal Genocide!!!
Since the band's first inception in the summer of 1990, ARGHOSLENT have earned a
reputation as one of the most uncompromising metal acts ever to emerge from the U.S.A.
always content in making militant music their own way regardless of all trends and
criticism, following numerous gigs in their legendary death metal home state of virginia
... and underground releases in 91, 92, 94, & 96. and their
debut album in 98.
ARGHOSLENT: meaning "Unholy Race War" fits perfectly into the band's lyrical and
musical concept which is that of historical revisionism, celestial abnegation & ultra-
militarism... in 1996 the band went dawn the abyss to record what in the beginning was
supposed to be their first M.C.D. "Arsenal Of Glory" but for several reasons it
didn't came out as planed... until now that chicago's SEMPITERNAL PRODUCTIONS is proud to
release it in C.D. format including also their "The Imperial Clans" demo -1994
as bonus tracks unleashing a total of:
10 militant hymns of impure death metal genocide!!!!!... dedicated to the diabolical death
metal hordes who still worship sickness and adore the impure...
Cecond CD release of the band, containing classic bombastic raw tracks being it a
"must have" for every real underground death metal fan!!!.....
Well skilled musicians also involved in diverse metal activities, in bands as:
Grand Beliah's Key (black metal) & Twisted Tower Dire (heavy metal) all of this bands
have CD's releases in Europe with great acceptation...
The band performs a unique style of death metal mixed with their heavy metal roots...
...a pretty special metal style performed since 1990... ARGHOSLENT doesn't know trends...
Some reviews so far:
If you are looking for an uncompromising and really militant death metal band, ARGHOSLENT
is absolutely what you need..! I was very astonished at hearing this band which can stay
original in the brutality of its songs, regardless of all fucking trends; in fact, the
members have succeed in creating an extremely bombastic band, while maintaining musical
excellence; this originality is due to their concept of historical revisionism and
ultra-militarism too. beware! this genocide will undoubtedly assault the underground in
time... Philippe;(IN DARKNESS ZINE...)
One of the oldest underground acts in the USA is undoubtedly ARGHOSLENT!... 53 mins. of
brutal death militant war metal which in fact has a lot of heavy and melodious elements. I
like all 10 songs featured in the album, despite the fact that the demo ones haven't got
the sound quality standards the others' have. Do support these kind of acts because
without them the true underground will cease to exist !!!!!!!!!...Alex Antoniou; (DEMONIUM
PRODS./ ANCIENT TRAGEDIES ZINE) 8/10.
The name of ARGHOSLENT transladates to "unholy race war" . And without a doubt
this makes good battle music. Agressive, majestic, thrashy and a bit black metal at the
This CD contains material from 1996 and 1994 that for various reasons never got released,
but here it is in now on c.d. format. Check out "Rape Of A Slave" mp3 or real

& Holy Hate, Doubleueird (outro).
Format: CD, T-Shirt, LS., Cassette.
Catalog#: (S.P. 007/02 CD)
Running Time: 35 mins.
Musical Style: Purely (dark & technical) death metal!!!!!...
DEW OF NOTHING was born ( in 1996) with the idea to play fast and technical death metal
after several rehearsals & live presentations (in mexico city) they started to prepare
their debut demo in august 97 at M.A.T. studios, having as results a five songs demo that
unfortunately wasn't pretty well promoted in those days but at least it helped to get the
name of the band around and got a contract with a Mexican label for their debut album in
cassettes format... This time it was recorded in a better studio having as result the 8
tracks + intro & outro with the tittle of: "Doubleueird" with excellent art
work and sound... As this cassette LP was very well accepted within the Mexican death
metal scene they realized that they have to move on to another levels of promotion,
distribution and exposure of their music... Immediately they found Chicago's based
SEMPITERNAL PRODUCTIONS as the proper label to release Coubleueird' on CD version
and also to take care of worldwide promotion and distribution while dew of nothing keeps
performing gigs as headlines in different states of their country with the most
representative bands of the death metal scene in mexico.... With blazing speed and
melodies dew of nothing plays in way that tracends all limitations of the death metal

... ALPHERATZ took form as a band in the depressive autumnal nights of 1995 as a project
of two musicians with similar ideas and philosophy... Both musicians were also founder
members of a black metal band called obscure liturgy since 1992... Then they dissolved
that band to start with a new musical era under this new name.
Fusioning sounds from the intense black metal... Until the density of the ritual... Going
through evocative ambients to somber passages... Taking technology as tools... Adding
diverse details to the music... Our band has earned a particular sound where our deepest
feelings are reflected... The alpheratz lyrical spells verses on arcane cosmic premises,
revelations of the beginning and the end of the universe, order and chaos, lux and
tenebris , duality... ambivalence of the human spirit, this is synthesis of thesis and
antithesis of diverse doctrines, ... Chaotic rhythms goes through delirious atmospheres
suctioning shadows from a parallel dimension invites us to enter but never return to our
actual treedimensional forms of life ALPHERATZ released their debut demo called
"Egregorian Oath" through Chicago's SEMPITERNAL PRODUCTIONS in 1996 with the
manufacture and distribution of Mexico's dark industrial-dark ambient label OPSION
SONICA.. this tape was well accepted in the underground scene being the 500 copies pressed

WARHAMMER (Ger) -"the winter of our discontent" LP (OUT NOW)
Re-live the times of the mighty "Apocalyptic raids", no other words necessary..
URN (Fin) -"I am your nightmare" 10" MLP (OUT NOW)
This is a re-release of their "promo '97" which consists of primitive and raw
black metal for all people who are sick of today's black metal scene, No keyboards, female
voices or other "nice" stuff will be found here.
JUDGEMENT DAY (Nl) -"to conure conjoint confusion" 7" (sheduled for
After 3!!! Years of delay this ep will finally see the light of day. This is JUDGEMENT DAY
in their best (but now unfortunately defunct) line-up sofar this ep offers you one new
track, a new recordimg of "clouds of mordor" and a cover of SLAUGHTER's
"f.o.d." for all of you who are unfamiliar with this band their style is best
described as brutal death/thrash.
RAZOR OF OCCAM (Austrl) -"diabologue" 7" (OUT NOW)
For all of you who are familiar with this band, this 7" contains the first 2 tracks
from the "diabologue" demo.
To all of you who have never heard from them before R.O.O. is a new promising Australian
outfit who will split your ears with their cool death/thrash metal. Forget all the
retro-shit R.O.O. will kick your ass!
GOSPEL OF THE HORNS (Austrl) -"eve of the conqueror" 12"MLP (scheduled for
Maybe some of you will remember this band from their "the satanist's dream"
demo, (also pressed on cd by a shitty label from Italy) after this release the band split
but from the abyss they have returned in the end of '96 when Howitzer found some
new members and decided to re-form the band. In this line-up they recorded the
"sinners" demotape which shows us the evolution of the band in a more thrashier
version of their early stuff. Now they have recorded a mlp for us including 2 new songs
and 2 of the tracks from the "sinners" demo re-recorded (with a new drummer)
which will show that G.O.T.H. is a force of THRASHING BLACK METAL to be reckoned with a
full length cd/lp will follow early next year and a European mini-tour is being planned.
ETERNAL HATRED (Usa) -"tba" CD/LP (scheduled for 2000)
Everyone who has heard the demo's of this band understands that they deserve a record
deal. Emerging from the industrial wastelands of Chicago I think you know what to expect.
Mid-tempo heavy death metal like we've heard it from other bands of the Chicago Metal
Inquisition like SCEPTER, USURPER AND CIANIDE..
PENTACLE (Nl) -"tba" double-7"(scheduled for late'99 early 2000)
This double 7" will include new material and 2 covers from early DEATH songs (demo
period) this will be special so don't miss it. There are also plans to re-release the
"exalted journey" as a shaped picture-7" but nothing is certain as we have
to find a factory where it's possible first otherwise it will probably be released as a
picture 7" (this will be a co-release with SOULSELLER PROD. also from Holland)
ALL VINYL RELEASES WILL BE LIMITED TO 500 HANDNUMBERED COPIES.
Furthermore we have releases with the following bands coming up: SEVERE TORTURE
("pray for nothing" 7") , CENTURIAN (vinyl-version of "choronzonic
chaos gods"), BURNING INSIDE (vinyl version of "eve of the entities"),

(GOLDCD005) SERENADE "Plague of Time" MCD'2000 (Professionally mastered CD!!)
1. Depth of the bleeding Angel (7:57)
2. Plague of Time (4:00)
3. Casting The Flesh/Say Hello To Hell (9:27)
* This is by far the bands best material so far. The music is more brutal and more focused
than ever before. Brutal death/doom would be the best way to describe this music and the
production is far better than the 2 previous full length CD's("The 28th
Parallel" and "The Chaos They Create"). The song writing and musicianship
is of the highest quality reinstating SERENADE as one of the best bands in the UK at the
moment. For further information on SERENADE, check out our web-site, URL at bottom of this
