Something by the name of Craft Kanilea is reissuing DISINCARNATE’s 1992 demo on cassette. Limited edition of 150 and it sounds like they’re mostly gone, so step on it if you’re interested: https://craftkanilea.bigcartel.com/product/disincarnate-soul-erosion-demo-tapes James Murphy also posted a link to a very small run of Disincarnate zip up hoodies by another European outfit.

Playlist Notes, Friday July 26, 2018 New Atrocity, Six Feet Under, Coroner reissues & more.

Been a bit of a dry year for OSDM but summer’s finally hot and everything’s turning up deliciously rotten. Press play and read below. Spotify  Apple Music The New Shit DRAWN AND QUARTERED have a new album called “The One Who Lurks” (Krucyator Productions) and ATROCITY came out of nowhere with a killer followup to 2013’s Okkult and while there’s a bit goth in the choirs and bombastic bits, it’s a death metal record…

Find our curated playlist on Apple Music & Spotify A rotating hour of new works by the old masters and classic pre-millennial death metal.

Thursday Three: Cadaver & Friends Mid-tempo, adventurous & weird.

Here’s a three of mid-tempo death metal-bordering-on-thrash that exchanges brutality and violence for something a bit more cerebral. There’s something to be said for taking your time.

Thursday Three: Latter-Day Unleashed Sure we love the classics, but what have you done for me lately?

Unleashed has had a remarkable career. Exploding out of the gates with “Where No Life Dwells” (1991) (reviewed here and recently reissued on vinyl (again)) and “Shadows in the Deep” (1992), the Swedish killers settled into more sustainable mid-tempo groove for “Across the Open Sea” (1993), “Victory” (1995) and “Warrior” (1997). They took a bit of a break after “Warrior”, but came back in 2002 with the half fun, half dreadful “Hell’s Unleashed” which kicked off…
