DVP 202 Tension – Decay LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Germany’s TENSION, Decay, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Hailing from Leipzig, Germany’s TENSION was founded in 2015 by vocalist Maik H. and guitarist Phil. M. during a night of dozens of heavy metal records and unlimited amounts of beer. The band was then rounded out by ex-members of Toxic Beast and Germany’s Prowler.

From the beginning, TENSION’s influences were firm: the First Wave of Swedish Heavy Metal (or FWOSWHM), including the likes of Gotham City, Heavy Load, Jackwave, Parasite, Jonah Quizz, Depzon, and Stitch among others; the always-eternal NWOBHM, but particularly Satan, Traitors Gate, Wolf, Ritual, and Lime Light; heavy metal from the Eastern Bloc like Aria, Ossian, Formel I, Omen, and Pokolgép; and different kinds of punk music, but most prominently The Misfits and Discharge. In other words, the PERFECT type of band for DYING VICTIMS – and not surprisingly, TENSION released their self-titled debut EP through the label in 2017. Gigs followed with the esteemed likes of Manilla Road, Satan, Pagan Altar, Tokyo Blade, and Alien Force among others.

Now, nearly five years since the Tension short-length, TENSION unleash their debut album, Decay. Right from its very first seconds, Decay sparkles with an excitement that’s absolutely addicting and endearingly timeless, running through a virtual jukebox of Old but brimming with the effervescence of Now. It’s pure heavy metal, through and through, with juiced-up hard rock and moody punk subtly integrated, and the power is always in abundance but never overbearing; TENSION’s cool & cruising momentum harkens to a lost era of feel over sheer speed. At the fore are nightsky-ascending lead guitars, whose narrative melodies straddle a fine line between metal classicism and something closer to dark hard rock. And Maik’s clear ‘n’ emotive vocals bespeak bathos and pathos, bravado but tenderness, epic adventures as well as long nights at the bar.

The cassette and CD versions of Decay will include nine tracks, with the self-titled EP added to the latter as bonus tracks. The vinyl version of the album will include eight tracks due to length, with the extra track saved for a split EP to be released later in 2022. In the meantime, no better time to experience the “Higher Power” of TENSION’s Decay!

– Special edition on white/black splatter vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch.
– CD edition with sticker.
– MC with sticker, button and download code.

DVP 203 Tangent – Tangent MLP/MCD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the striking debut mini-album of Australia’s TANGENT, self-titled Tangent, on CD and 12” vinyl formats.

Three wild dogs! Four wild tracks!! Locked down, loaded up, and ready to explode on DYING VICTIMS: this is the self-titled first recording from Melbourne’s TANGENT, heavy metal from the suburbs north of the river. Despite their newness of existence, their sound is most definitely OLD, which should come as no surprise given the power-trio’s membership includes current and former members of Demons Gate, Outcast, Convent Guilt, and Shackles among others.

Simple but not simplistic, resilient to time and trends and rippling with feeling and energy at every turn, Tangent is a rough ‘n’ rowdy trawl through rundown bars and desolate backstreets, but with the world weighing heavy on the mind of the protagonist. As such, heroic hot-rockin’ underpins TANGENT’s thrust, giving each of these four anthems-in-the-making an astute balance between the pensive and the powerful. It’s all fondly familiar, but hazily recast in a refreshing manner, like a lost Heavy Pettin’ recording found in the Eastern Bloc during the ‘80s or if Saxon had shared a practice space with Omen in some alternate time/space fold. Or, simply, the first makings of something special and EPIC.

With mastering by Patrick W. Engel at Temple of Disharmony giving it an exceptionally olde-worlde feel, theTangent mini album is ready to explode!

Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.

DVP 204 Vicious Knights – Alteration Through Possession LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present VICIOUS KNIGHTS’ striking debut album, Alteration Through Possession, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

VICIOUS KNIGHTS is an old-school death/thrash metal band, screaming from Thessaloniki, Greece. The band was formed in 2016 by Antonis “Harvester” (guitars/vocals) and Liakos (drums). Panos (bass guitar) entered the band a few months later. This three-piece of total maniacs self-released their first EP Malevolent Spirits on CD in 2018 and then reissued it in 2020 through the World War Now label. The band had many gigs in Greece presenting their first release and some of their newer material, making a great impact on the underground scene.

Now, armed with the support of DYING VICTIMS, VICIOUS KNIGHTS return to destroy the world with their first full-length, Alteration Through Possession! Curiously yet tellingly titled, Alteration Through Possession indeed transforms the listener…once that listener is ensnared in the power-trio’s iron grip! Like a trip back to 1987, VICIOUS KNIGHTS live up to their moniker by invoking the old spirits of early Kreator, Destruction, Possessed, and Sepultura, combining more devotedly horror-specific lyrics with absolutely ass-ripping DEATHRASH. They go beyond the gates to inflict eternal pain, their infernal overkill bestowing morbid visions upon those who still believe in razor-wire riffing, snarling-evil vokills, and straightforward drum-propulsion – and of course, actual songwriting. Simple, sure, but sublime: Alteration Through Possession is a pleasure to kill!

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on deep purple vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch.
– CD edition with sticker.

Out 28th January.

DVP 196 Cherokee – Blood & Gold DLP/CD/MC/Shirt

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Germany’s CHEROKEE, Blood and Gold, on CD and double-LP vinyl formats.

Hailing from Cologne, CHEROKEE was founded in 2014. Several lineup changes occurred until the first lineup was complete – guitarists Simon Siantidis and Alexander Beda Maria Kleusch, bassist Fabian Albert Dey, drummer Fabian Kampa, and vocalist Katharina Heldt – which recorded two demos, Ridin’ Free (2015) and Mother Nature’s Child (2016). Following the second demo, Heldt departed the band.

In 2017, vocalist Laura Vesprini joins CHEROKEE, and together the EP Wakan Tanka NIci Un Ep was recorded at Sculpt Sound Studio by Laurent Teubl (Chapel of Disease) and released in 2018. Many gigs followed, the band truly finding their latent power onstage, and in 2019 did a successful mini-tour commence with Canadian compatriots Freeways. But, that power was only simmering…

Indeed, it explodes across CHEROKEE’s literally massive debut album, Blood and Gold. Comprising 15 songs in 75 action-packed minutes – truly, a double-album like the old days – Blood and Gold is the culmination of over a year’s work of writing, recording, mixing, and mastering. More importantly, this recorded document is the grandest statement of the CHEROKEE aesthetic: moody, dynamic, and storytelling HARD ROCK chiseled from the stone of the ‘70s. Each song here is its own experience, its own heartstrings-pulling sensation and fist-shaking anthem. Although a handful of ‘em are re-recorded/finessed versions of earlier songs, it’s a foregone conclusion that these are the definitive issue: CHEROKEE wanted something special for their debut album and simply could not decide which songs to cut, and thus did thus they settle for a 15-song double-album. For them, it is honest, handmade guitar-driven music, a perfect mix of hard rock and blues, fun and power. The soundtrack for any situation in life, be it on your way to work, the soundtrack to an antisocial drinking night, road trips to festivals in the middle of nowhere – to cure post festival depression, or to spice up your next visit to grandma’s house – Blood and Gold is the sonic travelogue to get you there and get you feeling GOOD.

If you feel good to the immortal Thin Lizzy, Rainbow, Wishbone Ash, UFO, and Dire Straits or modern antecedents like the aforementioned Freeways, SANDSTORM, Haunt, MIDNIGHT PREY, and Savage Master, then CHEROKEE are guaranteed to be your new favorite band – and Blood and Gold your new favorite record(s)!

DVP 197 Destructo – Demonic Possession LP/CD/Shirts

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present DESTRUCTO’s striking debut album, Demonic Possession, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

The sound, attitude, and execution of DESTRUCTO is similar to the band’s moniker: destructive, merciless and total fukk-off-driven! Formed in 2018 as a side-project between erstwhile Dödsrit and Nuclear Devastation bandmates Soulcrusher and Motörphallus as a tribute to bands like Sarcofago, Syphilitic Vaginas, and Japan’s Sabbat, DESTRUCTO delivered their debut demo in 2019 – 19 minutes of total & utter destruction!

In the meantime, insanity, blasphemy, narcotics, and intoxication all played their part in inspiring DESTRUCTO’s debut album, Demonic Possession. Here, the power-trio amplify those noble influences to a fever pitch while also bringing forward influences from Bathory, Hellhammer, and especially G.I.S.M. With ten songs spanning a skull-crushing 40 minutes, Demonic Possession is a wild fucking ride, even for those prepared to get on in the first place. Cacophonic screams, primitive riffs, bulldozing bass, and berserking D-beats all collide with vocals which approximate a gnarling demon on strict diet of whiskey and amphetamines, making the album best to be enjoyed with…whiskey and amphetamines! Put another way, DESTRUCTO make an even stronger case for being the bastard child of raw and chaotic first-wave black metal blended with an unhealthy dose of ‘80s speed/thrash metal mania, Motörcharged riffs & rock ‘n’ roll grooves that creates the Devil’s Rock ‘n’ Roll!

Armed with production that’s slicing and slimy in equal measure and an overwhelming sense of danger both in songwriting and especially execution, the question remains: can you handle DESTRUCTO’s Demonic Possession? ARGHHH!!

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on transparent red /black marbled vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch. (slightly delayed, will start shipping next week)
– CD edition with sticker.

DVP 198 Galaxy – On the Shore of Life LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present GALAXY’s highly anticipated debut album, On the Shore of Life, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

GALAXY are a heavy metal band from Melbourne, Australia. Lost From the Start, their debut EP released in late 2019 by DYING VICTIMS, was a nod to the speed and traditional heavy metal of the 1980s, replete with the furious riffs and high-octane vocals one would demand from the genre. GALAXY are now set to release their follow-up, and first full-length album, On the Shore of Life. This time around, the band has spared no effort to make the music more dynamic and adventurous: the songs exhibit a greater sense of scope and take the listener to darker and colder climes.

Songwriter Stu Callinan (who handles all guitars and bass) and vocalist / lyricist Phillip T. King are joined on the recording by legendary session drummer and special guest Simon Phillips, who over the years has stinted with the likes of Judas Priest, the Michael Schenker Group, The Who, and Jeff Beck. His special guest-performance has created a most powerful foundation for the music to layer upon, lifting GALAXY’s new material to heights previously undreamt. And that new material melds Mercyful Fate and Megadeth-style riffing with the melody and song-based focus of Thin Lizzy and ‘70s Judas Priest and the adventurousness of early Fates Warning: On the Shore of Life, indeed!

In a post-covid world where the future of live music remains unpredictable, GALAXY will be back onstage as soon as possible. In the meantime, the spirited performances on this new record do well to propagate GALAXY’s tales of joy and madness, of love and loss, of fear and courage… Join GALAXY at the next port of their journey, On the Shore of Life!

– Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
– Special edition on emerald green vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch.
– CD edition with sticker.

DVP 199 The Night Eternal – Moonlit Cross MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present THE NIGHT ETERNAL’s highly anticipated debut album, Moonlit Cross on music cassette format.

It was but 2019 when THE NIGHT ETERNAL released their bolt-from-the-blue self-titled EP. For a first public recording, The Night Eternal was nothing short of masterful, revealing a depth and wisdom far beyond the band’s meager years. Across its three primary tracks and poignant cover of Judas Priest's “(Take These) Chains” did the German quintet concoct a supremely powerful and stirringly moody sort of heavy metal, both traditionally pure-steel in their dynamics yet also brimming with epicness and a sort of forlorn heroism. Not for nothing did it garner THE NIGHT ETERNAL a handsome amount of attention.

Now, with more eyes on them, THE NIGHT ETERNAL emerge from the shadows with their full-length debut, Moonlit Cross. Ever aptly titled, Moonlit Cross moves like a travelogue across the mysteries of the night – and of course, THE NIGHT ETERNAL’s namesake itself. Still night-prowling like that first EP, here on their first full-length salvo do the band reveal more (and more powerful, and moodier) shades of their epic sound, bridging both the epic end of traditional metal as well as the root variants which preceded it.

As the band explain, “In comparison to the self-titled EP, on Moonlit Cross we´ve included even more influence from various kinds of guitar-driven rock music, ranging from the ‘70s to the ‘80s, which shaped us as musicians. Combining it with our own sinister style of heavy metal allowed us to exactly create the music we’d been missing in today’s scene. We invite you on a journey to the lowest depths of our hearts.”

Indeed, the swagger THE NIGHT ETERNAL exhibit here owes more to early hard rock, invoking such names as Thin Lizzy, Rainbow, Scorpions as well as heavier sounds reminiscent of Mercyful Fate and Black Sabbath´s Dio-era. Yet, familiar as these touchstones may sound, the darkness they so dramatically drape across their compositions puts Moonlit Cross on another realm altogether – and one, it must be said, that evades easy categorization, be it stylistically or chronologically. Simply, THE NIGHT ETERNAL are putting their proverbial hearts on their sleeves, and the music they create is an honest, authentic, and goosebump-inducing reflection of the incredibly vital blood pumping in those hearts.

Massive hooks, sweeping dynamics, high drama, and of course, the commanding vocals of frontman Ricardo, all wrapped in a rich ‘n’ robust production by Ralf Praekelt, with mastering by Chris Common at Twin Hills Recording – THE NIGHT ETERNAL have truly arrived with Moonlit Cross.

DVP 194 Hexenbrett- Intermezzo dei quattro coltelli nudi MC

DYING VICTIMS is proud to present a special new EP from TTERBNEXEH, Intermezzo dei quattro coltelli nudi, on CD, music cassette and 12” vinyl formats.

It was but May of the cursed year of 2020 when TTERBNEXEH truly came into their own with their shockingly masterful debut album, Zweite Beschwörung: Ein Kind zu töten, courtesy of DYING VICTIMS. While the enigmatic duo of Josto Feratu and Scarlettina Bolétte had definitely turned heads with Erste Beschwörung EP in 2019, their debut album’s idiosyncratic kaleidoscope of Varathron, Jean Rollin, Danzig, Goblin, and Van Halen emerged as completely unique and unlike little else around.

Predictably unpredictable, TTERBNEXEH return with a crazed ‘n’ crazy EP that’s the result of canceled concerts and tours: the four-song Intermezzo dei quattro coltelli nudi. As suggested by its titled, the record is no “Beschwörung” but, rather, an intermezzo. Because, for the first time in the brief history of TTERBNEXEH, this EP does not feature performances by Josto Feratu or Scarlettina Bolétte. Instead, the tracks were recorded by what had been the live line-up for 2020, but of course under the watchful eyes and ears of the clandestine couple.

Suitably, Intermezzo dei quattro coltelli nudi strays some from the TTERBNEXEH sound so far revealed whilst etching the band’s twisted identity even further. With all songs and lyrics written by the duo of Feratu and Bollétte – except for a reverential cover of the early Misfits track “Return of the Fly” – the band’s original material here displays new facets in TTERBNEXEH sound: heavier, weirder, more atmospheric and more aggressive. It’s basically more of everything and the most accurate presentation of The Sound Of the Bloody Iris to date, and bloody fucking good no matter how you cut! While TTERBNEXEH previous full-length record featured unexplainable additional sounds in the background of the tracks, the material on Intermezzo… had to be re-recorded many times as things got lost continuously. It seems as if Feratu and Bolétte are still haunted from their past… But hark! Intermezzo dei quattro coltelli nudi is no taster/teaser of the second TTERBNEXEH full-length. Those mysteries are only known to the duo.
