Pre-orders for the Italian technical death metal band Coexistence's upcoming album 'Collateral Dimension' are up now! This is the band's debut full-length. The album is something  You can check out the the band's label sampler AT THIS LINK. As with every album we release, we are bringing forward some fantastic looking merchandise for this release. This otherworldly artwork is the creation of Adam Burke (Coffin Mulch, Vektor, Lurk)

Genre - Progressive Death Metal
Release date - August 7, 2020
Formats - Digital / CD / CD Box Set / Black T-Shirt
For fans of - 
Beyond Creation, Cynic, Atheist, Hateful, Atræ Bilis, Inanimate Existence, Psycroptic, Obscura, Necrophagist

Italian technical death metal wizards Coexistence conjure up their highly awaited full length album after releasing a belter of an EP in 'Contact with the Entity'. Expectations were already sky high but it's safe to say that Coexistence have not only met them but also surpassed them by a huge margin with 'Collateral Dimension'. They've grown by leaps and bounds and this album here is nothing short of a marvel in comparison. There's controlled aggression and exquisite melodies, ensconced effortlessly in their elaborate, sinuous and ever-changing structures. The album is highly varied and incorporates everything you'd want from this style of technical death metal with a lot of curveballs thrown in to prevent complacency from settling in. It's an enchanting and rivetting experience from start to finish as you discover new facets every time. With a mind-blowing artwork from Adam Burke, the album is beautifully able to express its sci-fi-themed vision where this kind of music goes, with perfect production values ensuring that everything is clear yet powerful. This has already proved to be a good year for Transcending Obscurity for such forward-thinking death metal music goes, with bands like Hateful, Atræ Bilis and even Sepulchral Curse paving the way for Coexistence's release and others such as Depravity, The Scalar Process and Revulsion.

Line up -
Alessandro Formichi - Drums
Leonardo Bellavista - Guitars

We waited a while for this one, to save up some money to be honest, but we're ecstatic to announce vinyl for this fantastic release finally! There are three unique colour variants limited to 75 each and also three wooden box sets with engraving for the respective variants that are limited to 25 each!

We're opting for a solid wooden box for this spectacular looking album. It's legit wood and bigger and obviously stronger than any of our previous LP box sets. Moreover, it has a laser-engraved logo adoring a significant front area of the box. These are limited to just 25 per variants, so they're definitely worthy collector's edition additions!

This package includes the following items -
► Wooden box with logo engraving
► Gatefold LP with metallic embossing and UV lamination/fragrance
► Autographed card
► Large album artwork flag
► Album artwork fridge magnet

We've gone overboard yet again offering spectacular LPs in three different variants with colours pertaining to the stunning album artwork made by Misanthropic Art. We've used all of our experience to come up with these variants and while the actual LPs are likely to differ from the mockups here, they're bound to look exceptional. Each variant is limited to 75 copies (with 25 LPs reserved for the wooden box set editions), and won't be repressed. They come in thick gatefold sleeves with metallic nuclear-waste green embossing and special UV lamination effects; just imagine: a whiff of the perfumed UV effect is sure to take you right into an abandoned graveyard covered with plants and wild flowers on a dark moist evening!.

We're thrilled to announce pre-orders for the gripping new ''The Great Hatredalbum by international atmospheric death/doom metal band Aphonic Threnody. 'The Great Hatred' is to release on October 16, 2020.  

Genre - Atmospheric Death/Doom Metal
Release Date - October 16th, 2020
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Noctu, Officium Triste, Poema Arcanvs, early Anathema, Illimitable Dolor, Towards Atlantis Lights, Et Moriemur

Members of Towards Atlantis Lights, Dea Marica, Arrant Saudade and more collaborate to conjure up the finest kind of death/doom metal that encompasses the best qualities this style has to offer - stirring melodies, heaving riffs, immersive atmosphere, and some of the lowest, most anguished vocals possible alternating with lucid, spoken passages. None of it is overbearing or lingers on for too long as the songs waft through the doom vacuum, making their presence felt and imperceptibly changing something inside the unsuspecting listener. Much happens during the course of the hour and Aphonic Threnody don't follow a strict formula, leaving things open-ended and unpredictable as they keep changing things around without disrupting the emotional temperament. 'The Great Hatred' makes for an engaging listen and will make you come back to unravel its richly layered and elegantly intertwined compositions. It's akin to living life all over again. And again. 

Line up -
Juan Escobar C. (Arrant Saudade) - Vocals, Bass, Guitar & Keys
Riccardo Veronese (Towards Atlantis Lights, Dea Marica) - Guitars

The LPs for Finnish death metal band Sepulchral Curse's 'Only Ashes Remain' album are out now, and are available in three spectacular colour variants. We've done our best to come up with some stunning colour variants for the LPs and moreover, we've gone overboard with the packaging by including not one but two alternate artworks in the gatefold layout which will have a UV embossing effect, in addition to a subtle metallic effect throughout.
