Schirenc Plays Pungent Stench hits Europe in December / January!

We intend to survive Christmas, after which it’s time to ROCK with Schirenc plays PUNGENT STENCH, CARNATION, THEOTOXIN and IRDORATH!

30 years ago, the world witnessed the birth of one of the most unique bands in Death Metal history, and this year saw the release of Pungent Stench‘s final album – “Smut Kingdom”! In celebration of this memorable occasion, singer/guitarist Martin “El Cochino” Schirenc will gather his cronies and desecrate the holiday season with classics from the past, as well as new material!

Carnation from Belgium will bring you Death Metal the old school way. Promoting their full length debut album “Chapel of Abhorrence”, this will be more than just interesting for fans of Dismember and Cannibal Corpse.

Theotoxin is the Black/Death metal ramgoat from the capital of morbidity. Take off your faith, rearrange your idols and let the godcunts guide you through the states of obscurity, hate and illumination.

Last but not least Irdorath will bring you hell. Expect an intensive and powerful live performance from Austria’s pulsating extreme Black/Thrash Metal specialists.

Exclusive tour merchandise will be available at these shows

Joy to the world, the stench has come!

Izegrim announce new EP ‘Beheaded By Trust’

Dutch death thrash ragers IZEGRIM are releasing a brand new EP entitled ‘Beheaded By Trust’ on March 23rd. The four stunning tracks were recorded, mixed and mastered at Kohlekeller Studio (ABORTED, BENIGHTED,..) in December 2017. The cover artwork came courtesy of Kirill Semenov.

IZEGRIM’s Jeroen comments: “A different studio, concept and a fresh approach on songwriting; this Digipak EP marks a new beginning for us! It will be launched as an old-school DIY-release: straight from us to the fans! However, this absolutely doesn’t mean that we have ended the collaboration with Listenable Records. On the contrary, it is just a taste of great things to come..”

‘Beheaded by Trust’ tracklisting:
1. Beheaded by Trust
2. Stain in the Bloodline
3. Retraumatized
4. Warmonger II

‘Beheaded By Trust’ is the follow-up to 2016’s ‘The Ferryman’s End’, which drew a positively roaring press response worldwide and saw the band touring and sharing stages with the likes of FLOTSAM & JETSAM, KREATOR, ANNIHILATOR, ONSLAUGHT and more.
