Recommended Posts

Dying Victims Productions is thrilled to announce two amazing new releases which are now up for pre-order.

DVP 129 Aggressive Perfector – Havoc At The Midnight Hour LP/CD (song premiere tomorrow 7 pm German time at Deaf Forever)


DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present AGGRESSIVE PERFECTOR’s striking debut album, Havoc at the Midnight Hour, on CD, vinyl LP and digital formats.

Following up their 2016 release Satan’s Heavy Metal, Aggressive Perfector’s debut full length, Havoc At The Midnight Hour, finds the English trio in resolutely evil form as they take a major step forward on their path of destruction.Embracing a wealth of haunted sounds and textures, this sepulchral slab of metal conjures an atmosphere rich in the romantic repugnance of horror’s past masters which it uses the setting for a 37 minute nightmare of nocturnal menace, occult fascination and bloody vengeance.

Summoning the ghosts of Metal past – Tank, Slayer, Venom and Mercyful Fate all playing a part- Havoc… fixates on the nuclear fury of an apocalyptic future, from which it culls new ways to pervert the course of heavy metal in the present.Follow Aggressive Perfector into the nightmare when Havoc At The Midnight hour is released on November 1st.

Regular LP version on black vinyl, with insert, poster and sticker.
Special LP version on colored vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker and woven patch.

CD version comes with sticker.

DVP 137 MATTERHORN – Crass Cleansing LP/CD (song premiere today 7 pm German time at Deaf Forever)


DYING VICTIM PRODUCTIONS and Redefining Darkness Records are proud to announce 1st November as the international release date of the advanced label version of MATTERHORN’s debut album “Crass Cleansing” on LP, CD and Digital formats:

“Today marks a very special day to us, as we can say that our debut album «Crass Cleansing» is going to be released on vinyl for the first time on label!! Not only for the purpose of restocking our nearly gone self-released vinyl, not as plain second pressing or re-release, we used this happy chance to bring you the reworked & advanced label edition. Soldiered through the messy fap of what was the original reproduction, this is now something we’re cool to say we’re being proud of in a new level… Reworked to come closer of how you know our songs live, to fit our vision and most important, to show the group’s capability as an outstanding and inventive group, more precisely… Remixed by JB “Wonderwall” Van Der Wal because he understands the band. Remastered. Also it’s advanced to completion by two new live recorded bonus tracks «Bydying» and «Clarity», to show an insight on our forthcoming sophomore album, presenting the band in its actual state and to cut the biased sights on what we do. The new playtime is 49 minutes. All new artworks and layouts. It will be out in November on CD/Vinyl and streaming. We are happy to have found the two partners Dying Victims Productions and Redefining Darkness Records (US version) to make this possible! Our deepest gratitude!If you hated it, you may hate it for new reasons, if you loved it, you will surely love it for new reasons anew! More info to come …”

Are you ready for another triplet metal attack? Today DVP is starting the pre-order for 3 new releases from Iron Curtain, Hexenbrett and Sacrifizer.


Keep an eye out for the song premieres through Deaf Forever starting on Monday 9th September!

Up for pre-order: http://www.dyingvictims.com/shop


DVP 139 Iron Curtain – Danger Zone LP Box/LP/CD/MC/Merch – song premiere on Monday 9th




DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present IRON CURTAIN's highly anticipated fourth album, Danger Zone, on CD, vinyl LP, cassette tape and digital formats.


For the past decade, Spain's IRON CURTAIN have become a veritable institution in the international true-metal underground. Road to Hell, their debut album from 2012, set the stage for their successive scene dominance. Forged in the fires of the early '80s, IRON CURTAIN's sound set forth a smorgasboard of grit and gleam equally, largely nodding to the eternal Motörhead as well as Tank, but also Canadian gods like Exciter and Razor, to the Teutonic might of early Iron Angel and Grave Digger, to Scandinavian gods OZ and Heavy Load, to cult American icons Abattoir and Savage Grace. Indeed, none more true were IRON CURTAIN - and they were here to stay! Two more revered full-lengths followed - 2013's Jaguar Spirit and 2016's Guilty as Charged - but now IRON CURTAIN are about to lift the veil on their most rocking record yet.


Fans since the beginning, DYING VICTIMS is honored to unleash that hot rocker in the form of Danger Zone, arguably IRON CURTAIN's magnum opus. Scaling back the speed that characterized the band earlier on, here do IRON CURTAIN work the sweet-spot mid-tempo, maximizing space and shade within these overtly more melodic gems. The production on Danger Zone is especially exquisite, retaining an era-authentic grittiness without sacrificing any latent heaviness. Not that "heaviness" per se is the prime directive on LP#4 - although, ripping opener "Wildlife" would suggest otherwise - rather, the cooly cruising dynamic these eight anthems take is far more suited to fist-shaking and pint-raising instead of thrashing like a maniac. Thus, hooks are huge, and any perceived "cleaning up" of the production pays off across these 33 electric minutes, culminating in the mesmerizingly moody climactic closer "Lonewolf."


Are you prepared to enter the Danger Zone? Let IRON CURTAIN show you the way!

DVP 140 Hexenbrett – Erste Beschwörung MLP - song premiere on Tuestday 10th




DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present HEXENBRETT’s debut ooutput, Erste Beschwörung, on Mini LP and digital formats. Originally self-released at the end of 2018, this first summoning of the macabre HEXENBRETT is surely one of 2019’s most nefarious recordings.


HEXENBRETT is an entity that provides cemetery sounds exclusively. The first invocation, fittingly entitled Erste Beschwörung, is a sample of what will follow in the future. Roaming ancient dungeons with sword in one hand and torch in the other, HEXENBRETT conjures the madness and mysticism of olde-worlde black metal, when unorthodoxy was celebrated and no blueprints yet existed – only paths to be blazed! Indeed does HEXENBRETT blaze across this four-song/19-minute offering, remaining firmly rooted in the purest metals but fanning those flames with a creepy, coffin-dwelling atmosphere that puts Erste Beschwörung in a league all its own, also incorporating eldritch doom and deathrock into this wildly bubbling cauldron. And it’s early days still…


No boundaries, no limitations: HEXENBRETT digs its own unique grave with Erste Beschwörung, and the cemetery is wide-fucking-open. The spell was cast, the demons are here – let the haunting begin!

DVP 141 Sacrifizer – La Mort Triomphante LP – song premiere on Thursday 12th




DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present SACRIFIZER’s debut mini-album, La Mort Triomphante, on vinyl LP and digital formats. Enhanced with the band’s 2018 demo and one new track, the infernal majesty of La Mort Triomphante has now been expanded into full-length format.


Originally released earlier this year on limited-edition CD and cassette, La Mort Triomphante was SACRIFIZER’s glorious burst from the underground. At five furious tracks and atmosphere-setting intro, La Mort Triomphante sounds much like its cover looks: icy yet fiery, galloping forward like evil invaders with a violent restitution. Indeed, SACRIFIZER are 100% cult speed metal sewn from ancient Canadian cloth, but other fibers from ’80s France and Germany also comprise their patchwork of salacious speed and bestial devastation. Grounded in the more traditional end of speed metal, the quintet keep their songwriting focused and straightforward, maximizing hooks and never forgetting the eternal magick of a good guitar solo; even the production itself on La Mort Triomphante is era-authentic but never smacks of cheap retro-posturing. The same could be said for their debut demo, Night of the Razors, which is here amended to this special LP version. A bit more berzerker and dripping with diabolism, SACRIZER early on indeed exuded some Morsüre vibes. “Morbid Envenomation,” the brand-new track exclusive to this vinyl LP, ends off the record with the band in full-on epic and EVIL mode, pointing the way toward SACRIFIZER’s inevitable debut album, which is bound to be a modern classic…soon!

Today’s the day, Dying Victims Productions is proud to announce the release of three new (mini-) albums. Limited vinyl editions are already decimated, so do not wait too long to get your copies:


DVP 134 Megaton Sword – Niralet MLP/MCD/T-Shirt


DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present MEGATON SWORD's striking debut EP, Niralet, on CD and 12" vinyl formats.

Hailing from Switzerland and founded in 2018, MEGATON SWORD are ever aptly monikered: theirs is a nuclear-powered style of true-as-steel HEAVY METAL drunk on high fantasy and the enduring themes of conquest and valor, triumph and tragedy. The band's first public recording is titled Niralet, and it arrives as a fully formed document of a young band already capitalizing on their considerable strengths. The quartet - vocalist Uzzy Unchained, guitarist Chris the Axe, bassist Simon the Sorcerer, and drummer Dan Thundersteel - here create five mini-epics that feel far vaster than their succinct track times suggest. Perhaps it's the patient pacing they employ, allowing each bellow of bathos and push of pathos to ring out and as true as possible; perhaps it's the passion and machismo dripping from every element, every drop of blood, sweat, and tears tangible and intense; or perhaps it's Niralet simultaneously sounding timeless and fresh, safely evading both rote "retro" throwback and over-modernity in kind.

We can make references to '80s Manowar, Warlord, and Manilla Road as well as maybe early Running Wild or Nasty Savage, but even this early on, MEGATON SWORD are being no one but themselves. Wield MEGATON SWORD and begin the quest to Niralet! Suitably soothing 'n' eerie artwork courtesy of Adam Burke.

DVP 135 Midnight Prey – Uncertain Times LP/CD


DYING VICTIM PRODUCTIONS is proud to present MIDNIGHT PREY's highly anticipated debut album, Uncertain Times, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Honest rock music played on real instruments: this is MIDNIGHT PREY! In a feral-yet-atmospheric way, this German three-piece play an honest and powerful old-school kind of sound, anchored in the darkness.

When MIDNIGHT PREY was founded in 2013 by Hannes Ruhland (drums), Winston Ziller (guitars, vocals), and Daniel Friesen (bass), they had known each other for two more years since the age of 16-18, already having a bit of reharsal and live experience together and apart. From Venom to Frank Zappa, from Roxy Music to Bolt Thrower, from Rory Gallagher to Black Flag - almost nothing was taboo on their record players. Growing up together sharing their love for good handmade music of all kinds of varieties, they played their way through Germany's underground heavy metal stages and released a demo on tape called The Savage Sessions in 2013 via Witchhammer Productions. In 2014, a promo tape called Rehearsal Rites was exclusively sold at one show, containing rough recordings of the songs to come out on the following EP, Rite of Blood, which was released on CD, tape, and digital.

MIDNIGHT PREY moved from the southwest of Germany to Hamburg in 2015. After playing a lot of shows in Hamburg, there was the release of a 7" single called Blood Stained Streets, which underlines their romance for the dirty, booze-soaked streets of St. Pauli (Hamburg). Now, at long last, their debut album, ominously titled Uncertain Times, is nearing release, and the power-trio are more than ready to unleash their sheer energy onto the world!

Indeed, energy is in abundance across Uncertain Times, but tempered with a focus and clarity that suggest the work of veterans. Skillfully working with space and shade, the songwriting retains an urgency but is never in a rush to the finish line, either; MIDNIGHT PREY just play it cool and keep the heads banging and fists pumping. Likewise, with that ever-present energy, they wisely don't over-distort or saturate their sound, keeping a clean-yet-gritty aspect that reverently straddles their many stylistic inspirations. Whether it's '70s hard rock, '80s heavy metal, or classic punk and speed metal, MIDNIGHT PREY mix it all into one addicting concoction that simply demands total thralldom - and repeat plays!

Uncertain Times is ageless wisdom spoken sagely in complicated, all-too-modern times...and it's time for MIDNIGHT PREY!

DVP 136 Galaxy – Lost From the Start MLP/MCD


DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present GALAXY's striking debut mini-album, Lost From the Start, on CD and 12" vinyl formats.

GALAXY is a band from Melbourne, Australia. In choosing the name GALAXY, their mission is to channel the cosmic power of heavy metal, and share it with those who will take up the challenge - to join them on a musical odyssey as far as the imagination will allow.

GALAXY tip their hats to the speed metal and traditional heavy metal acts of the 1980s with their untamed and spirited MLP, Lost From the Start. A force of musical beauty, terrifying in its splendor, it brings to mind '80s Riot, Satan, Megadeth and the classic years of Judas Priest, with manic thrash elements evoking the glory days of heavy music.

Lost From the Start has a dynamic production that appropriately captures the ferocity and emotion the songs exude. Mastering duties for the MLP were handled by none other than Andy La Rocque at his very own Sonic Train Studios, ensuring the maximum potential of the recording was achieved. The stunning gatefold cover art was created by talented Melbourne artist Keelan Ashton-Bell, presenting a sci-fi-inspired alien desert world which prepares the listener for the epic voyage ahead.

With a professional and high-octane live presentation in tow, the band brings a message of joy and madness, tales of love and loss, songs of fear and courage. Join GALAXY on their journey, Lost From the Start.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.

      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
