A Wilhelm Scream is widely regarded as one of the best, most impressive top-tier punk rock bands to emerge in the last twenty years. Like their counterparts in Propagandhi and Strung Out, the band has a knack for upping the tempos, increasing the levels of riffage and metal-inspired technicality, and consistently blow people’s minds with their unique brand of complex song structures and intensely personal lyrics that have had fans screaming their lungs out at lives shows across the world for nearly two decades now.

“Rarely is 13 minutes of life this intense. Taking in Burning Desire to Draw Last Breath by the Santa Cruz sonic terrorists Gulch is a harrowing, hopeless, and despicably addictive journey through myriad genres of extreme music; leaving me completely exhausted and blanched of color. Being brutalized has never sounded so impeccable.”

MENTAL CAVITY Premiere “Downtrodden” Single

Posted by admin on May.24, 2021

Australia’s MENTAL CAVITY have debuted the first single off their upcoming Creator-Destructor debut, “Mass Rebel Infest” – Check out “Downtrodden” HERE!

“Mass Rebel Infest” sees the band continuing to refine their sound, taking influence from bands such as Morbid Angel, Tragedy, Crowbar, and Autopsy, intertwining death metal riffing and vocals with punk and crustier d-beat pacing and attack.

Vocalist/guitarist Aaron Osborne reveals, “’Downtrodden’ is one of the first songs that I really vibed on for the record, it has a good collection of everything I like about MENTAL CAVITY; heavy slow parts, faster d-beat sections, and a bit of death metal groove. Lyrically, the song is about groups of people that get pushed to the margins of society and stepped over time and again by the structures that are designed to support them, and in turn benefit the higher powers instead. This is obviously shit, and it permeates through all of society, so why not yell about it? Taylor Young, who mixed the record, was kind enough to rip a quick guitar solo on it as well. One of my favorites from the album for sure.”

MENTAL CAVITY Joins Creator-Destructor Records

Posted by admin on Apr.28, 2021

We’re thrilled to welcome Canberra, Australia-based juggernaut MENTAL CAVITY to the label for the release of the band’s third LP, Mass Rebel Infest! The cross-genre quartet MENTAL CAVITY spent the long months of lockdown during 2020 writing and recording Mass Rebel Infest, as a follow up to Neuro Siege, released in 2019 via Brilliant Emperor Records. Mass Rebel Infest sees the band continuing to refine their sound, taking influence from bands such as Morbid Angel, Tragedy, Crowbar, and Autopsy, intertwining death metal riffing and vocals with punk and crustier D-beat pacing and attack.

MENTAL CAVITY recorded Mass Rebel Infest themselves in their hometowns in Canberra and Melbourne in late 2020. The album was mixed by Taylor Young at The Pit Recording Studio in Van Nuys, California (Nails, God’s Hate, Zous), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon (Obituary, Integrity, Kruelty). The added tonal brutality brought to the front by these two modern legends of production sees Mass Rebel Infest cement itself as MENTAL CAVITY’s finest release to date.  

Preorders + Debut Single Announced soon!

EXTINGUISH Release New Track / 7″ Preorders Launched!

Posted by admin on Mar.24, 2021

As we prepare for the release the eponymous debut 7” EP from Sacramento-based hardcore outfit, EXTINGUISH, you can now listen to the 2nd single off the release as well as preorder the upcoming 7″ at the band’s bandcamp page HERE

Having formed in 2017, EXTINGUISH attempts to achieve the darkest/hardest sound they can, merging elements of death metal with the classic 90s hardcore sound. With a style somewhere between the output of death metal greats Obituary and Grave, and hardcore icons Next Step Up and Gut instinct, the band delivers a punishing, metallic attack akin to peers Sunami, Hands Of God, Field Of Flames, and more.

Extinguish drops seven tracks in barely sixteen minutes, the songs surging with rigorous vitality and slamming breakdowns. The record was recorded April 2020 at Panda Studios by Charles Toshio and completed with cover art by Nicky Rat.

No Echo writes, “The Sacramento quintet’s barbaric riffs and delicious mosh parts have brought them comparisons to Next Step Up and Gut Instinct, and No Echo isn’t going to argue with that assessment.   Extinguish is part of the current wave of groups that also includes Hands Of God, Momentum, and Sunami that is helping to make the Golden State one of the premier regions of the world for metal-kissed hardcore.”

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.
