Posted by admin on Apr.29, 2020

We’re excited to announce the debut ‘solo’ album from Ben Murray of Heartsounds/Light This City – No Chemistry “Dead Wait” will be released June 1st, 2020.

“Dead Wait” reveals a significant departure from both Murray’s previous endeavors, with the album’s sound heavily influenced by rock and indie music, fused with a melancholy aesthetic and pop sensibilities. Featuring eight tracks and clocking in at just under 25 minutes, No Chemistry’s debut LP does not overstay it’s welcome.

Posted by admin on Mar.27, 2020

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.”

DISMEMBERMENT Unleash “Once Forsaken”

Posted by admin on Oct.03, 2019

We are thrilled to premiere the first single from DISMEMBERMENT’s impending second album, Arc Of Ancients! Preorders for the record have also been issued with the new track. Check them both out via Bandcamp HERE!

In a time fueled by instant gratification and oversaturation, DISMEMBERMENT has chosen to avoid the common path. Since the band’s formation in the winter of 2010, the band has forged their own way, fueled by fierce determination and perseverance. Over recent years, DISMEMBERMENT has continued to grow into a well-oiled machine, booking their own shows, traveling, and recording and releasing albums on their own finances, while continually pushing themselves and their unique brand of metal to new heights.

States the band with the release of the “Once Forsaken” single, “Here at last! A new ripper hot off the press. Turn it up and bang your head!”

Arc Of Ancients will be released on LP, CD, and digital platforms through Creator-Destructor on October 18th.
