Portal – Swarth & Seepia Reissues

No other group conjures the madness of Portal. It would simply not be possible for two bands to concurrently wield such eldritch powers and have the earth not implode. Their vinyl catalog, once extremely hard to come by, has been given the distribution it deserves thanks to Hells Headbangers. Do not prolong the slow march toward ancient, unknown horror […]

Morbid Angel – Altars Of Madness & Blessed Are The Sick

If the listings on Amazon can be believed (and they… usually can) then these two masterpieces of death metal from Morbid Angel are returning to vinyl. Earache seems to be slowing down on their production of “Full Dynamic Range” reissues lately, and we have no word whether or not these two titles will bear that […]

ZOM – Flesh Assimilation LP

ZOM’s debut LP has been given the vinyl treatment (including a foldout cover to showcase the beautiful artwork) thanks to the discerning minds over at Dark Descent. Pre-orders have been announced, and come May 18th or thereabouts, you should be holding in your hands a true manifestation of filthy, rotted death, courtesy of these Irish […]

Domains – Sinister Ceremonies LP

Righteous death metal from Spain – no swirling, no murkiness, no cavern-core posturing – just death metal. This is one of our favorite LPs in this genre to come out in 2014 and you can currently pick it up at theajnaoffensive.com or shop-hellsheadbangers.com. Sinister Ceremonies by DOMAINS

Swallowed – Lunarterial 2xLP

Plenty of bands piggyback on the mythos laid down by the visions of infernally inspired storytellers preceding them. I mean, how many more songs need to be written to finally wring the last, fetid drops from the shroud of Howard Phillips Lovecraft’s imagination? Well, lots more, probably. Anyways, point being – sometimes a band just hurls you […]

Death – Symbolic LP

Speaking of Death, it looks like Metal Blade has swept a reissue of Symbolic into their late 2014 vinyl release schedule. I have not heard their recent King Diamond reissues, but I’m assuming that a lack of message board whining is enough to indicate that the quality on them is perfectly passable, if not exceptional. These […]

Death – Spiritual Healing LP

Time to stop sleeping on the newest Death vinyl reissue from Relapse. Release date is right around the corner, and you can’t possibly imagine that the boxset (limited to 500) is going to last much longer. With 4500 copies being pressed onto black vinyl for retail sales, you shouldn’t be left completely wanting, but if […]

ABSU – Barathrum: V.I.T.R.I.O.L. LP (Standard Edition)

The Crypt specializes in beautiful, expansive vinyl reissues for essential, underground metal bands. We all know this. Well, we all should. If you don’t then shame on you. I’ve got to admit though, the cost of admission and forfeiture of precious shelf space has kept me from picking a few up. So I was pretty damn […]

Incantation ‘Dirges of Elysium’ LP

That new Incantation album, though – don’t sleep on this one, you’ll have nightmares. Red vinyl may be a little harder to find, but you can and should pick up the black vinyl at incantation.com.

AEVANGELIST – Omen Ex Simulacra 2xLP

This one’s a bit of a sleeper and has been sitting in the drafts for several weeks, but there’s no time like a humid Friday afternoon to put on your headphones and rub a death metal belt-sander all over your brain. This 2xLP was released on Debemur Morti and can be picked up from shop-hellsheadbangers.com. Omen Ex […]
