NECRITE – “Sic Transit Gloria Mundi” ON SALE NOW

After six years and five demos of anticipation San Jose black metal tyrants Necrite have finally unleashed their debut curse upon us: Sic Transit Gloria Mundi. Seamlessly fusing elements of droning doom, funeral ambience and thrashing black metal, Sic Transit Gloria Mundis is a monument in the legacy of West Coast black metal along with the likes of Weakling’s Dead as Dreams and Leviathan’s Tenth Sublevel of Suicide. Necrite have managed to craft some of the most visceral and demonic audio terror around, forgoing traditional song structure and predictability in lieu of a pure unflinching devotion to creating the aural essence of death. This debut oozes tarry black hatred from every pore, and bleeds into its own mouth perpetually; and leaves the listener with out a shadow of a doubt that it is the product of a fanatical loyalty to misanthropy, insanity, hatred and death. With Sic Transit Gloria Mundis Necrite brightly outshine the endless torrents of talentless crap flooding the airwaves and earned themselves a spot among the decaying world’s ever dwindling black metal elite. -D.L.

Palace of Worms “Lifting the Veil” TAPE

Available now:

40+ minutes of new material by single person black metal entity Palace of Worms. This was written and recorded for release on cassette only! Limited to 150 pro manufactured tapes.

ORDER HERE

American black metal despot Palace of Worms returns with “Lifting the Veil,” another nail in the coffin of the depressing trend of hipster black metal. A brilliant follow up to the infinitely layered and terrifyingly perverse masterpiece “The Forgotten.” Once again, Balan conjures a unique and churning work that in a single breath defines black metal. “Lifting the Veil” offers 40+ minutes of angular, ugly, suffocating and utterly hate-filled atmosphere, subtly amalgamating elements of thrash, doom, post-rock and dark ambient under the fetid banner of black metal. Those familiar with Palace of Worms know to expect nothing less than truly impressive musicianship and a uniquely demented take on the dark arts of black metal informed as much by classics like “A Blaze in the Northern Sky” as by the twisted visions of bands like Leviathan and Ruins of Bevarast. “Lifting the Veil” differs from “The Forgotten,” in its unhealthy obsession with atmospherics, it reveals the world as it truly is, a rotten, doomed rock hurling through an infinite void, a realization that will leave listeners despotic and enlightened. Ultimately “Lifting the Veil” is a welcome chapter in the legacy of Palace of Worms, as well as an appropriate expression of disgust toward the progressively condemning nature of our obsession with modernity. -D.L.

Two New Releases: Ghast + Bosse-de-Nage

We the Flenser hereby announce the availability of two new releases—Ghast’s “May the Curse Bind” 2xlp and Bosse-de-Nage’s self-titled CD debut. These new releases can be purchased separately or together at a discounted package rate at the Flenser Store HERE

Ghast “May The Curse Bind” 2xlp


Originally released on CD by Todestrieb records in 2008. Flenser is very proud to release this monument to black doom.
The double vinyl release also contains the Ghast tracks off of the split with Helvette released on War Flagellation in 2007. The vinyl cut of these demo tracks sounds unbelievable and is the highlight of this release.

With crushing intensity and ominous fervor the United Kingdom’s Ghast unleash their debut album May the Curse Bind on wax. For those familiar with the British trio, you know to expect nothing but unrelenting monolithic doom encrusted with ashy black metal majesty. On their debut album, Ghast have crafted some of the most sinister and terrifying audio terror around. Furthermore May the Curse Bind’s pressing to wax is indisputably a harbinger of mankind’s ever nearing end. Having formed in 2004 as Souldust, it is unthinkable that in four years the outfit developed such a profoundly mature and cohesive sound, a sound that could result from none other than absolute dedication to misanthropy and grimness. This release is one more step toward eradicating the trendy weaklings plaguing the supreme black arts in these harrowing times. Needless to say, it is absolutely mandatory for anyone who claims dedication to the supreme legacy of Black Metal as well as Doom Metal. May the Curse Bind is pure fucking black doom. –D.L.

-500 copies.
-100 on clear with red splatter (available only directly from Flenser)
-400 on clear red vinyl
- Gatefold jacket with redesigned artwork. Printed on reverse board.

Order HERE. Listen HERE.

 

BOSSE-DE-NAGE “Self-titled” CD

Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, the black metal act known as Bosse-de-Nage, is equal parts Slint, Darkthrone and Alcest. Flenser Records is gleefully proud to present the release of Bosse-de-Nage’s long delayed self-titled full-length album.
We, the Flenser, feel that we have no choice but to finally give this masterpiece its proper release. Finally, the self-titled full-length debut by Bosse-de-Nage is available in its finest form to date. This CD release is the first time that these tracks are available in the sound quality that they were intended to be and is housed in artwork created by the band and printed on quality linen paper stock.

Order HERE. Listen HERE.
Not only are we offering these two releases at a discount, but for the uninitiated, Flenser hereby offers the Flenser catalog at a discount. More info found in the STORE.
