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.

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.
