ARCHGOAT - BÖLZER - SVARTIDAUDI - EGGS OF GOMORRH
Het Bos and Ondergronds proudly present:
CONTINENTAL CRUCIFIXION - TOUR 2017
The mighty ARCHGOAT, one of the most revered hordes in Finnish Black Metal, is back with a new bestial and ritualistic album and they have lost none of their original ferocity. "The Apocalyptic Triumphator" is a monstrous collection of cavernous psalms to Lucifer, a glorious affront to Christianity embedded in a sinister sonic environment.
The new abomination from these distinguished defilers of Christianity bears the true seal of authenticity. "The Apocalyptic Triumphator" sounds like a diabolical pact with the darkest form of Artistic Creation. With no quarter asked and none given, this is primitive music, raw and perverted, in its most hellish form.
Black Metal changed, ARCHGOAT did not !
-Black Death Doom Metal-
Hailing from Switzerland, BÖLZER are one of the most unique entities the metal underground has birthed in years. For one, BÖLZER are proudly and resolutely a duo, using the barest essentials of voice, guitar, and drums and yet creating one of the densest, most world-eating sounds around. For another, the duo have wisely and patiently parceled out their recordings, with a lone nine songs to date across three records - 2012's Roman Acupuncture demo, 2013's IRON BONEHEAD-released Aura EP, and 2014's Soma EP - judiciously chronicling the band's evolution into one of the most critically acclaimed metal bands in recent memory. And yet, "critical acclaim" has never been a part of BÖLZER's agenda: their commitment is to their art alone, but it just so happens that word-of-mouth built organically (and feverishly), especially on the strength of their devastating, soul-draining live performances, where they can recreate every aspect of their records in the flesh.
-Icelandic Black Metal-
Echoes of terrified madmen reverberate through unholy chambers, rock bottom accelerates towards naive psychonaughts and once proud monuments crumble as the rot within them seeps through porous decaying rock. Iceland’s Svartidaudi emerge triumphant as heralds of a new (dark) age.
Musically, technicality reigns supreme. Each note is planned, each groove structured and each song expansive, monolithic and destructive. There are hints of the avant garde, but not at the expensive of aggression. As movements build and withdraw the only constant is the sheer invective force that pummels unrelentingly.

-Black Death Metal-
Since the beginning, EGGS OF GOMORRH's sound has firmly and unapologetically situated itself between the bestial and war metal idioms. And yet, within that bilious and brazen maelstrom lay a whole host of perversions salaciously pursued in the name of blitzed-out, far-beyond-the-red oblivion. It is a sound that doggedly gnaws at the listener, first pulverizing with its overwhelming physicality and then adding aggravation upon virulent aggravation: a sickly gestating cauldron of filth and fetidness, raw disgust and naked hatred, all captured exquisitely/disgustingly with a mixing/mastering by Vassafor's VK. Verily, Rot Prophet is 26 minutes of miasmic madness that simply must be confronted, EGGS OF GOMORRH truly planting seeds of sanity-flaying pseudo-salvation. Wrongness never rests... - Nathan T. Birk
