New DEPRAVITY release, actual pics of SC and AB vinyl, HATEFUL download codes and more!

 First Revolting pre-orders went up, and then Depravity (which sounds immense!) with two merch variants for the first time ever, and next up are releases from Heads For The Dead and the 30th year anniversary album from the mighty Wombbath! Please have a look at some of the stuff that we'll be offering for the Heads For The Dead release which will go up for pre-order THIS FRIDAY (It's Bandcamp Friday btw) -







We received 
Sepulchral Curse and Atræ Bilis LPs well in advance of the shipping date and they look gorgeous. Please find here mockups with ACTUAL IMAGES of all the three LP colour variants. We're having a blast and hope this spree never ends! I'm sorry if you might find them slightly more expensive than the rest of our products but that's because we have to pay 40% tax on them as we're importing them into our country, not to mention the exorbitant shipping costs from Europe to India. We're doing our best though and offering the best kind of packaging possible. The sleeves of both these releases look great with the metallic embossing and UV lamination effects! Please pick them up before they get sold out as we can't afford to repress them and we've got other releases to put out too. Thanks and hope you like them - 











You can find them on our up-to-date 
Indiemerch US Store and of course Bandcamp and our Main Store (www.tometal.com). We're in the process of completely updating our Europe Store (Germany) too so in October you'll find LPs of both these releases and also the last copies of Live Burial and Jupiterian.


Please find here info about one of our biggest releases of this year - 





Depravity (Australia) - 'Grand Malevolence' (December 4th, 2020)

Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - December 4th, 2020
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Suffocation, Morbid Angel, Psycroptic, Nile, Spawn of Possession, Gorgasm, Immolation, Hour of Penance, Abysmal Torment, Decrepit Birth


After releasing a groundbreaking album in 'Evil Upheaval', Australian death metal giants Depravity take things to the next level on their new album 'Grand Malevolence' which is one of the most devastating albums of this year. It's technically evolved, with masterful songwriting meeting skull-smashing brutality, executed with blinding speed and power. Each song is a testament to the best expression this style holds, showcasing facets of the sub-genres without allowing it to dilute the overall intensity and momentum. There's technical death, brutal death, even progressive parts designed around the same dark and pummeling death metal Depravity are known for. It's a clear tour de force and it might take multiple listens for that realization to sink in, because the album is so meticulous and intense that it might be too much to grasp at one go. Depravity have created a masterpiece and set high standards with it not only for themselves but for the genre as a whole, eschewing concepts of stylistic differences, trends and schools, and imbibing it all to create the most lethal expression possible. Prepare to get blown away. 





We've come up with FIVE gorgeous colour variants for the latest Depravity album which is one of our biggest and most awaited releases. Not only does it feature the two-panel continuous artwork of Alex Tartsus, made possible by the gatefold packaging, there's also UV embossing done on the logo and some text and has a metallic effect all over to boot. It makes for one sublime product. Please note that each of these variants are strictly limited to 75 nos. each and won't be repressed. The mockups are for representational purpose only and are likely to vary where the final product goes.







Here's the highly sought after solid wooden box for our fans of excellent box set collections. The boxes are made of high quality pine wood, have the Depravity logo laser-engraved with sharp detailing, and will be available for all five colour variants of the LP.

Technical death metal fans, if you haven't yet tuned into the monstrosity of a full-length that is 'Set Forever On Me' by Italian tech death outfit Hateful, now is a good time to set everything aside, amp up the volume, and check out what many are calling 'tech death at it's very best'!

Hateful (Italy) - 'Set Forever On Me' (September 25th, 2020)


Genre - Technical Death Metal
Release Date - September 25, 2020
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - 
GorgutsImmolationDisincarnateCerebrumSuffocationSpawn of PossessionArchspireDeeds of Flesh



Italian death metal masters HATEFUL have created a mind-bending album of epic proportions. They've constructed dizzying structures by piling riffs and drum patterns atop one another with delirious fervour and surgical precision. It includes elements of the early technical death metal bands like ATHEIST, GORGUTS, DISINCARNATE and DEATH, powerful brutal coagulants such as SUFFOCATION and DEEDS OF FLESH, and even the kinetic, ever-changing properties of bands like SPAWN OF POSSESSION and NECROPHAGIST. There's just so much to unravel as a listener and it's a rare treat, for HATEFUL take their time fleshing out the parts and seeing to their fulfillment, rather than rushing blindly through it all without making any rhythmic sense or retaining a semblance of coherence. This is a thinking man's death metal where the core sound isn't mutated abnormally nor is the brutality mitigated and yet it incorporates intricate, highly challenging structures, IMMOLATION-esque complexity and dissonance, and exhibits maddening dexterity and endless album replay value. Seven years in the making, Hateful's hugely awaited album complements contemporary death metal label mates in DEPRAVITYATRÆ BILIS, SEPULCHRAL CURSE and CUTTERRED FLESH and even technical death metal champions CHAOS MOTION, CEREBRUM, COEXISTENCE and THE SCALAR PROCESS.
