August 22, 2018 – Entertainment One (eOne) has signed Portland, Oregon’s LORD DYING to a worldwide deal with plans to release an all-new LP next year. Hailing from a region of the country that’s abundant with purveyors of the heavy riff, both parties are eager to get started.

Witchcult Records in one of the few deeply underground labels I genuinely trust and keep a close eye on. I may not have much of their catalogue, but the cassette only group has yet to really steer me in the wrong direction. So, when Bandcamp shot out the notification of their latest release, a five song tape from UA (which I assume means Unknown Artist) titled WC016 (which is the label code for this particular release), checking it out was a no brainer. No information on the group could be found on the store front, metal-archives, or even Google. with no idea who this entity is beyond it being a raw black metal outfit, the payment waw sent for one of the few physical pressings available without hearing more than a small snippet. But, in hindsight, was it a worthy purchase, or is this insanely obscure piece of metal history better left a hidden legend?
German true metal ensemble HAMMER KING will release their third full-length, Poseidon Will Carry Us Home, on October 5 via Cruz Del Sur Music. Recorded at Studio Greywolf with POWERWOLF bassist Charles Greywolf at the helm, Poseidon Will Carry Us Home is an unabashed bow to classic, anthemic, hook-laden metal, proving HAMMER KING was more than up to the task of meeting the often-high expectations that come with a band’s third album.
