SCALP Announce “Domestic Extremity” 12″ LP

Posted by admin on Sep.28, 2020

Creator-Destructor Records welcomes Southern California-based death metal/hardcore savages in SCALP to the label for the November release of the band’s impending debut LP, “Domestic Extremity”.

Listen to the first single “Bastard Land” HERE!

Preorders available as well, with each variant limited to 125pcs. SCALP is Southern California’s most violent and unpredictable new outfit, bred on a wide range of influences from across and beyond the realms of extreme music. Facets of classic and technical death metal, West Coast crust, and modern hardcore unite in an explosive attack in the vein of Nails, Dead In The Dirt, Dystopia, Homewrecker, and Terminal Nation.

With their demo on the shelf for one year, SCALP is now prepared to unleash their caustic debut full-length, Domestic Extremity, unloading ten tracks as devastating as they are lyrically pressing in the current state of the country. Engineered and mixed by Taylor Young at The Pit Recording Studio (Nails, Xibalba, Twitching Tongues) in August of 2020, Domestic Extremity was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Obituary, Dropdead).

Creator-Destructor to Release Cursed Blood “Taker of Life” EP

Posted by admin on Sep.12, 2020

We are thrilled to announce the vinyl pressing of “Taker Of Life”, the deadly debut from Greek death/thrash outfit, Curseed Blood. The record is now streaming in its entirety and preorders have been posted HERE!

Cursed Blood formed at the beginning of 2019, in Athens, Greece. Although this act is new, all four members of the band have been involved in metal and punk bands for the past twenty to twenty-five years such as Dead Congregation, Burial Hordes, Sarabante, Vulnus, Nuclear Winter and more recently, black/thrashers Satan’s Wrath.

The idea behind putting CURSED BLOOD together was to form a death metal band with a crust punk attitude, fueled by Entombed, Disfear, Autopsy, and alcohol. The band released their debut, Taker Of Life, on cassette in October 2019 through a small local underground label, Extreme Earslaughter. The tape sold out in a couple of weeks, and in February 2020 the band self-released a CD version through their own Katara Records. Now, Creator-Destructor Records will release Taker Of Life in a proper vinyl version in the USA in conjunction with War-Anthem Records who will be releasing in Europe/ROW.

Creator-Destructor to Release SPY “Service Weapon” 7″

Posted by admin on Sep.07, 2020

We are thrilled to announce that we will join To Live a Lie Records (North Carolina) in releasing the debut 7” release from Oakland, California’s very own SPY!

The band’s filthy debut EP “Service Weapon” was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Charles Toshio at Panda Studios in Fremont, CA in early 2020. The cover art was handled by Cain Cox. Comprised of four tracks and clocking it at under eight minutes, SPY’s sound is best described as savage, unrelenting, power-violence-soaked hardcore-punk.

The first pressing of “Service Weapon” will be available in three different color-ways (Black, Yellow, and Clear). However, Creator-Destructor Records is handling the “clear” version as our “exclusive” color-way. We’ll announce a preorder date in the following weeks, but in the meantime make sure to head to the band’s Bandcamp page to listen to the four destructive tracks right now.

We’re so excited to announce that the incredible new Double LP release from San Francisco’s NITE, “Darkness Silence Mirror Flame”, is officially out NOW! You can stream the record/purchase digitally via Bandcamp by clicking HERE!

Purchase the LP/Digipak CD/Merchandise (Longsleeves, T-Shirts, Pins, etc) via the Creator-Destructor webstore by clicking HERE

NITE was formed in 2018 by Van Labrakis (Satan’s Wrath, Mencea), Scott Hoffman (Dawnbringer, High Spirits), Bryan Coons (Older Sun, Motorhome), and Pat Crawford (Serpents Of Dawn, Older Sun). Delivering traditional heavy metal with blackened vocals, influenced by the NWOBHM and the heavy metal titans of the 1980s, NITE brings us back to the golden age of heavy metal with a sinister twist.

On their debut album, Darkness Silence Mirror Flame, NITE deploys eight searing songs. Razor sharp guitars, blazing leads, earth shattering bass, and punishing drums set the stage for the filthy, vile, and despicable vocals to unfold stories of horror, darkness, and despair. 

NITE Premieres Single via Decibel Magazine

Posted by admin on Feb.25, 2020

San Francisco’s blackened/traditional metallers NITE – formed by current and former members of Satan’s Wrath, Dawnbringer, High Spirits, and more – presents “Genesis,” the opening track to their impending debut album, Darkness Silence Mirror Flame. The new single has been premiered at Decibel Magazine – Listen here!

Writes Labrakis on the new single, “’Genesis’ charges head-on into the great expanse, life enduring over death in the vastness of empty space. The song is a nod to the great Maiden album openers that shaped us – ‘Aces High,’ ‘Caught Somewhere In Time,’ and ‘Moonchild.’ We are the hope flickering to the end of that immense darkness. ‘We are the light in the night.’”

Decibel offers with their premiere, “Everything is better blackened, a belief that certainly holds true on NITE‘s first release, Darkness Silence Mirror Flames. The San Francisco quartet play ripping traditional heavy metal with a blackened spin. The end result recalls the best of both genres—galloping heavy metal riffs and leads mesh easily with a mid-paced black metal atmosphere.”

PISSED REGARDLESS “Imperial Cult” Out Now

Posted by admin on Nov.05, 2019

San Diego, California-based hardcore/metal act PISSED REGARDLESS presents their volatile new Imperial Cult LP, which was recorded between March and July of 2019 at Sunsick Studio by Alex Jacobelli, mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Integrity, Nails), and completed with cover art by Curse Of Face.

PISSED REGARDLESS guitarist Sean Walker offers, “Imperial Cult was written through the later part of 2018 and into 2019. We took a different approach when we were writing the material in the sense that we wanted it to have a different feel and flow. Without drifting to far from our previous releases, we really wanted to experiment and not hesitate when it came to trying things. The five of us are extremely stoked to share Imperial Cult with the world.”

No Clean Singing’s detailed review of the album includes, “The album displays razor-sharp execution, generally turbocharged, thrash-fueled pacing, and a powerhouse sound. It’s almost relentlessly explosive in its impact, and mercilessly vicious. The band certainly have no interest in showing mercy to your neck, because these songs are also ruinous sources of sore-neck syndrome, loaded with the kind of punishing rhythmic hooks and strands of infectious (though bleak) melody that will get your head driving hard and fast.”
