DVP-R 008 Sortilège – Larmes de héros Box/LP/CD

RELICS FROM THE CRYPT, the sub-label of DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS dedicated to keeping the past alive, is proud to present a long-overdue vinyl reissue of the classic second album of France’s SORTILÈGE, Larmes de héros.

A cult fixture in the ‘80s French heavy metal scene that retroactively grew in legendry, SORTILÈGE defined a unique national style that had equal footing in the NWOBHM, contemporaneous hard rock, and nascent epic metal. Formed in 1981 and releasing a demo and EP over the new two years, it was SORTILÈGE’s 1984 debut album, Métamorphose – also concurrently released in an English-language version as Metamorphosis – that truly introduced the band to worldwide audiences with a wild ‘n’ weird iteration of heavy metal. While that English version made their unique style more palatable (helped in no small part by its release on Steamhammer), it’s arguably the French-language version that defined the SORTILÈGE sound. And so it went with its superior follow-up.

Again released in both French- and English-language versions, SORTILÈGE’s second album is a tour de force of true-metal passion and performance, mysticism and might. Blithely summarized as French romantic twist on Judas Priest’s transition from the ‘70s to the ‘80s – or, rather, spanning Sin After Sin to Defenders of the Faith – the original Larmes de héros was released in that golden year of 1986, harkening to a fantastical place far, far away where hot rockers bloomed into heroic-yet-tragic epics. The English version of Hero’s Tears plainly spells out the path ahead, but the dramatic (and oft-melancholic) vocals of Christian Augustin in his native language truly chill/sizzle the soul: a veritable French Metal God. Not to be outdone, his bandmates create a canvas at once anthemic and narrative; pacing is crucial across Larmes de héros, as more direct power-surges flank the album’s utterly immersive epic songs. And at nine songs across 46 minutes, you feel like you’ve undertaken a hero’s journey – but one not without a monumental amount of headbanging.

Tragically and too fittingly, Larmes de héros would be SORTILÈGE’s final studio album. A number of re-formations would happen over the next couple decades and then fizzle out, but the true SORTILÈGE died with Larmes de héros. Wipe away those hero’s tears, though, for RELICS FROM THE CRYPT at long last resurrects this stone-cold classic for posterity!

DVP-R 009 Rampage – Veil of Mourn LP/CD

RELICS FROM THE CRYPT, the sub-label of DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS dedicated to keeping the past alive, is proud to present a long-overdue vinyl reissue of the cult lone album of Australia’s RAMPAGE, Veil of Mourn, along with a CD edition with both demos as bonus.

While there have been many Rampages past and present, there was only one RAMPAGE from Australia – and a more cult band you will not find. Formed in 1985, the band went through several lineup changes before recording their debut demo, Acid Storm, in July 1986. Recorded on a home 4-track, the demo sold well in their native Melbourne but failed to gain any interest. More lineup changes followed the next year, with a pre-production demo recorded as a prelude to their album, but once again, RAMPAGE failed to generate any record company interest. Then, in late 1987, the band recorded, produced, and financed their debut album, Veil of Mourn, which was more-or-less self-released in early 1988. Extensive touring across Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra, and Brisbane followed. Likewise, excellent record sales locally and overseas followed, but no interest from international record companies came. In May 1988, vocalist/guitarist George Mitrov rang bassist Dave Frew and advised that he had found God and would no longer have anything to do with the band; cancellation of all gigs followed. Then, later that year, Dave Frew (who had formed TYRUS with Peter Hobbs) and drummer Bruno Canzianni join Hobbs Angel of Death, and RAMPAGE effectively came to an end.

However, as a lone document of a band and era, RAMPAGE’s Veil of Mourn is superlative in every sense. There’s a distinct ruggedness to the band’s ceaselessly shifting style of thrash. Mind you, NOT necessarily “rawness” – although the album’s production certainly tends toward the rough – but RAMPAGE’s execution eschews the super-clean sharpness that thrash metal was largely heading toward in the post-Master of Puppets era. With form meeting content, the power-trio’s songwriting similarly takes all sorts of labyrinthine paths short of being qualified as “tech,” racing around and restarting with sometimes-maddening fury. Hooks thankfully abounded, and RAMPAGE’s attack undeniably possessed a death metalled underbelly not unlike Dark Angel or aforementioned Oz cult icons Hobbs Angel of Death. With that songwriting often reaching a fever pitch of diabolism and all three members barely keeping that fury in check, Veil of Mourn becomes a palpitating experience, a veritable ‘80s horror movie turned into a thrash record. The creepy cover art only heightened this sensation.

As years passed, the aura around Veil of Mourn only grew, helped in part by Australia’s ever-growing prominence in the extreme metal landscape. RAMPAGE thus became an etched-in-time “what could have been?” cult band, who respectably preserved their legacy with a mere album. Connect the dots to “the Australian sound” with this LONG-overdue reissue!

DVP 239 Hellish – The Dance of the Four Elemental Serpents LP

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS, in conspiracy with UNSPEAKABLE AXE RECORDS, is proud to present the highly anticipated third album of Chile’s HELLISH, The Dance of the Four Elemental Serpents. DYING VICTIMS will handle the vinyl LP version while UNSPEAKABLE AXE will handle the CD version.

Since their formation in 2010, HELLISH have become a prolific force on the blackened thrash scene. With a discography to date totaling two albums, three EPs, four demos, a couple compilations, a split, and a single, this Chilean quartet have been nothing but dedicated to their evil cause over the past decade-plus. During that cursed year of 2020, longtime vocalist/bassist Necromancer departed the band, but in came Christopher Aravena as his replacement, and HELLISH sounded more invigorated than ever on last year’s The Vermis Mysteriis EP.

With that bolstered lineup in place, HELLISH return to the full-length front with The Dance of the Four Elemental Serpents. The title alone should speak toward the band’s elevation above the cliché aspects of idiomatic blackthrash; while their grounding in the Teutonic “Big Four” of Sodom, Kreator, and Destruction has never been in question, HELLISH have always made subtle-yet-concerted strides to separate themselves from mere worship, and The Dance of the Four Elemental Serpents proves this beyond a shadow of a doubt. For one, the guitars of Francisco Sanhueza and Javier Salgado wind and wend with wild abandon, keeping the riff trajectory aggressive yet creative, twisting and turning with a diabolism that reaches a fever pitch with well-timed (and quite literally explosive) solos. For another, Aravena’s bass goes in busier directions than just following the guitarists’ riffing; hulking and upfront, his chops match those of the six-stringers, and guitarist-turned-drummer Christian León’s tasteful touches on the kit flesh out that momentum with fury and finesse. Altogether, HELLISH give a masterclass in blackened thrash songwriting that’s far more inventive and interesting than “blackthrash,” and The Dance of the Four Elemental Serpents becomes a surprisingly epic spin during its deceptive eight-song/33-minute runtime.

Dizzying and diabolical, HELLISH hereby raise the bar considerably with The Dance of the Four Elemental Serpents.

DVP 245 Pursuer – Demo 2022 MC

Drawing influences from the international 80s speed metal scene the band races through four original tracks which are topped off by a high pitched vocalist that will haunt you for far longer than the actual running time.

Dying Victims Productions is proud to announce the following new releases:

DVP 230 Vigilance – Vigilance MLP/MCD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a brand-new mini-album from Slovenia’s VIGILANCE, simply self-titled Vigilance, on CD and 12” vinyl formats.

Born from the cavernous depths of Adelsberg, Slovenia’s VIGILANCE have been unleashing their own brand of heavy metal since Walpurgisnacht 2010. Inspired both by the harmonic arts of the original NWOBHM wave and the sepulchral elements of the first wave of black metal, VIGILANCE have steadily perfected their craft over the past decade-plus,possessing a unique crossover appeal to fans of early Iron Maiden and Mercyful Fate as equally as Venom and Bathory.

However, after years of taking that throwback sound to countless stages across Europe, it was VIGILANCE’s fourth album, Enter the Endless Abyss – released in 2019 by DYING VICTIMS to widespread acclaim – where the band had their breakout moment. Dark and dynamic but galloping gloriously with the eternal luminescence of HEAVY METAL might, Enter the Endless Abyss proved that VIGILANCE had truly nailed their subtly unique sound – and made it more compelling than ever.

And although some three years have passed since that pivotal record, VIGILANCE return with the same fire on the brand-new mini-album Vigilance. Across its five-song/26-minute duration, VIGILANCE’s self-titled salvo goes in an ever-epic direction, maximizing that (memorable) sonic storytelling they so compactly revealed on its full-length predecessor. Everything’s still head- and fistbangingly metal, arguably even more so here – the dual-guitar work is FIRE in the non-flashiest way – but there’s equally a sense of fantastical AOR ala classic-era Rainbow as the record progresses, hitting a heavenly high with nearly-seven-minute closer “Orbis Mundi.” And while VIGILANCE’s execution has never been doubted, on Vigilance do they loosen up a bit and let these more mysterious odes wind and wend with a suitably earthier feel. Put another way, take one look at that gorgeous cover artwork and you KNOW what you’re in for!

VIGILANCE have been aging like a fine wine, and have only grown more potent. Drink deeply of the concise cup that is Vigilance!

– CD edition with sticker.

Vinyl editions slightly delayed, they are supposed to leave the pressing plant late next week.

DVP 233 Bunker 66 / Lucifuge – Of Night And Lust MLP/MCD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present Of Night and Lust, a special split mini-album between BUNKER 66 and Germany’s LUCIFUGE, on CD and 12” vinyl formats.

Both BUNKER 66 and LUCIFUGE should be familiar names to those versed in the dark deeds of DYING VICTIMS: Just earlier this year, BUNKER 66 released through the label a split 7” with fellow Italian filth-bangers HELLCRASH, as well as their long-awaited (and rightly celebrated) fourth album, Beyond the Help of Prayers, earlier in 2021; for their part, LUCIFUGE released their equally celebrated fourth album, Infernal Power, through DYING VICTIMS during the spring of 2021. Here on Of Night and Lust, both bands each deliver three exclusive songs, making for 24 minutes of ancient speed metal sleaze and metalpunk ghoulishness.

BUNKER 66 are up first and show no signs of slowing down, especially so after 15 years as a band now. “Mellhammer” and “Sulphurous Lust” are exemplary displays of their greasy speed-metal surge, and yet subtly exude an eerie aspect that perhaps point the way forward for future recordings. Capping their entry is a faithful cover of Motörhead’s “Doctor Rock,” which both underlines BUNKER 66’s roots as well as reverently paying respect to the fallen gods of Lemmy and Würzel. LUCIFUGE follow with an even-more-blackened iteration of their etched-in-stone metalpunk across the tracks “The Great Unseen” and “In Blood and Dust.” They conclude with a surprising-yet-storming anthem fittingly titled “Warriors of the Night.” While many metal anthems have been attempted under such a title, you’ve truly never heard one as invigorating as this – nor LUCIFUGE so bright and brassy!

DVP 234 Witch Blade – Månsken LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated second album of Sweden’s WITCH BLADE, Månsken, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Hailing from Kristinehamn, Sweden’s WITCH BLADE were formed back in 2012 by Witchlover and Witchhunter. The two childhood friends had been playing together in other projects but wanted to form a band that honored their heavy metal heroes: namely Angel Witch, Tokyo Blade, Judas Priest, and Iron Maiden. After writing a couple of songs, the band became a three-piece when drummer Witchburner joined in early 2013. The same year, the band recorded their self-titled debut demo, which sold out quickly and was later re-released by Levitate Records, followed by a 7” single titled Fjärrans Krig in 2014. After working as a sound engineer on the single recording, Witchdoctor joined on second guitar just in time for the band’s debut album, Oskuldernas Eld, released in 2015 by DYING VICTIMS.

WITCH BLADE made their live debut in 2015 as a supporting act for Black Trip. Since then, the band have made several live appearances around Sweden. Thereafter, a period of hibernation followed until 2021, when the band decided to continue again as a trio. The result is something of a rebirth: Månsken, WITCH BLADE’s second album.

While the cover to Oskuldernas Eld certainly clued listeners in to its contents, the one for Månsken compellingly complements the album’s contents in a most tasteful fashion. There’s undoubtedly an olde-worlde, magickally musty flair to WITCH BLADE here – also keenly note the band’s change in logos – their traditional heavy metal going back even further in time to the proto-metal era. Nothing overdriven, nothing too over-the-top, just hard rocking AND hot rockin’ and an almost narrative moodiness to the songwriting whilst staying locked into classic verse/chorus/break structures, WITCH BLADE once again locate that wonderful (and elusive) balance between garage-born emotion and swords & sorcery stateliness. To a man, the riffs and leads of guitarists Witchlover and Witchdoctor (who also drums here) often impart a melancholy on par with Wishbone Ash’s Argus or Thin Lizzy’s Black Rose, while frontman/bassist Witchhunter sings his heart out in his native tongue, which only heightens the heart-on-sleeve pathos across Månsken. And just like its full-length predecessor, the eight-song Månsken is an extremely swift & satisfying spin at 33 minutes.

All those denim-clad diehards and cloak-wrapped warlocks into early (and moody) hard rock AND cult NWOBHM, you are hereby commanded to witness the rebirth of WITCH BLADE with Månsken!

DVP 235 Spectre / Tension – Hard Attacks / Earth Crisis 7”

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a new split release between Spectre and Tension, on 7” vinyl format.

Both heavy metal acts are no strangers to Dying Victims and its audience, as they have released two EPs as well as an EP and an album respectively. Spectre’s side contains one straight rocking track “Hard Attacks” which was originally recorded in 2017 and only distributed handmade CD-R which was given away for free with orders from the band’s own Heavy Chains Records store.

Tension’s debut album came out in early 2022 and was, unfortunately, quickly followed by the band splitting up. Now, posthumously, the last track of the CD edition of the album, “Earth Crisis”, gets its well-deserved vinyl treatment as it was left off the vinyl in order to reduce playing time and to preserve the best possible sound. Melancholic heavy metal at its best!

DVP 225 War Ripper – Strength In Numbers 7″

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present WAR RIPPER’s long-awaited second EP, Strength in Numbers, on 7” vinyl format.

While the name might be unfamiliar to many, WAR RIPPER is a side-project of prolific madman Joel Grind, who needs no introduction for the long-running (and influential) Toxic Holocaust as well as his solo work and the Tiger Junkies with Abigail founder Yasuyuki. From the start, WAR RIPPER was built on the foundation of honoring Joel’s D-beat influences, and he thrillingly recast with the strict-yet-exciting Hellstorm EP in 2007 courtesy of Hells Headbangers.

While the years since have obviously been spent on Toxic Holocaust and their rigorous recording and touring demands, Joel Grind brought back WAR RIPPER in the pandemic-stricken 2020 with the EP Strength in Numbers. Originally released on Bandcamp, Strength in Numbers at last sees a physical release on 7” vinyl courtesy of longtime fans DYING VICTIMS. Picking up exactly where Hellstorm left off but buttressed by clear-yet-crushing production, Strength in Numbers is a swift ‘n’ satisfying statement of metallic D-beat. No more but definitely no less, and of course graced with Grind’s encyclopedic knowledge of both metal and punk, WAR RIPPER’s long-awaited second recording is sure to stoke maniacs of Disfear, Warcollapse, England’s Disgust, later Anti-Cimex, and granddaddies of it all, Discharge.

DVP 241 Freeroad – Do What You Feel! LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present FREEROAD’s striking debut album, Do What You Feel!, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Hailing from Monterrey, Mexico, FREEROAD formed in 2018 with only the goal of making music for the love of making music. The moniker FREEROAD was thus chosen to symbolize the idea that there’s no boundaries in music; genres don’t really matter, as long as they’re keeping the essence of old-school rock ‘n’ roll. For FREEROAD, that essence is largely built up on the classic sounds of the ‘70s and ‘80s – be it UFO, Thin Lizzy, Yes, Rush, or Jeff Beck – as well as the early rocking sounds of the NWOBHM.

Armed with such a noble ‘n’ rustic foundation, FREEROAD proceed to make their bolt-from-the-blue first statement with Do What You Feel! Ever aptly titled, Do What You Feel! indeed finds the quartet ranging those aforementioned sounds and styles with almost alchemical ease. Heartfelt, honest, and homemade, FREEROAD’s hot-rockin’ harkens to an era where immediately immersive hooks, loose-yet-locked-in ensemble playing, and earthy dynamics were king. Thus, it’s not disingenuous to suggest that there’s a certain déjà vu here; you might’ve heard these songs before, in a nostalgic alternate reality or two removed, but they had yet to be written. Such is the wondrous and endearingly celebratory magick at work across Do What You Feel!, as each of these nine anthems-in-waiting work their spell: each one different than the last, but definitely all the work of the same band. Again, the album experience as one that’s narrative in its variety – truly, FREEROAD are a band out of time.

Pleasures that are simple but utterly sublime, there’s no over-thinking needed or fancy words necessary when approaching the gritty glory of FREEROAD. Just like its cover cheekily displays, you’ll feel compelled to Do What You Feel!

DVP 242 Critical Defiance – No Life Forms LP

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present CRITICAL DEFIANCE’s highly anticipated second album, No Life Forms, on vinyl LP format. Unspeakable Axe have done the CD version.

Hailing from the cult-metal hotbed of Chile, for nearly a decade now, CRITICAL DEFIANCE have been steadfast purveyors of authentically late ‘80s-style THRASH. Their 2019 debut album, Misconception, turned many a head, and now the time has come for CRITICAL DEFIANCE to turn heads completely around with their second album.

Ominously titled No Life Forms, CRITICAL DEFIANCE’s second full-length sees the quintet firing on all cylinders – and heading into hyperdrive. Insanely tight in their razor-sharp execution, the Chileans here dish out extreme aggression nearly every second of this breathless, 30-minute work, with riffs flowing fast and free, and then going faster, faster, FASTER! Through it all, CRITICAL DEFIANCE’s stop-on-a-dime chops prove jawdropping, and lest one misconstrue No Life Forms as a mere exercise in clinical precision, be aware that the band never forget thrash’s primary power: full-on thrashing and The Mosh, moving seamlessly between the two and with catchiness to spare. All that’s in full force here, and it cannot be overstated how insanely juiced-up their execution is. No speed limit!

Fans of vintage Vio-Lence, Atrophy, Whiplash, and Dark Angel, you’ve met your modern match with CRITICAL DEFIANCE’s No Life Forms!

DVP 243 Trastorned – Into the Void LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present TRASTORNED’s highly anticipated debut album, Into the Void, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Hailing from Santiago, Chile, TRASTORNED formed in 2008 with the simple goal of being a local thrash band. Led by guitarist Fabian Piña and vocalist Felipe Lonza, the band became more serious the next year and recorded their debut demo, Decapitacion. More lineup shuffles ensued, but second demo Killer Thrash arrived in 2010. Four years would pass before TRASTORNED recorded another demo, but this time, with Witching Demo!, they revamped their sound and sharpened their attack, going from more blackened thrash to a cleaner and more complex style of thrash not unlike Vio-lence, Forbidden and Exodus around the turn of the ‘90s.

TRASTORNED began working on the initial recording of their debut album as early as 2019, but eventually moved proceedings to a different studio. And while Covid no doubt stalled those proceedings, at last is TRASTORNED’s debut album here: Into the Void. Bearing luridly Lovecraftian artwork by Marcelo Miranda aka Made In Darkness, Into the Void suitably disorients and demolishes the senses with dizzying ease. Truly, TRASTORNED here sound transported from 1990, from songwriting to production, slicing and surging with stop-start precision and an acidic execution as aggravated as prime Demolition Hammer and Morbid Saint. However era-authentic their sound may be, the quintet nevertheless possess THE SONGS to put this handily within that hallowed pantheon, each track taking mind-mangling routes but ones not without hooks; the catalog of riffs here on Into the Void is staggering, and they’re all threaded together masterfully. More than that, TRASTORNED’s chops are superlative and always put in service of the song, and the razor-sharp production only amplifies this electrifying fact.

Eight songs in 30 minutes and your heart will race like it rarely does these days: TRASTORNED will take you Into the Void, and FAST!

DVP 252 Running Maiden – s/t MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present RUNNING MAIDEN’s self-titled debut ep, on music cassette format.

Hailing from Switzerland, a quarantine one-woman project at first, Running Maiden quickly turned into a three-piece, totally devoted to classic heavy metal from the 80s. Drawing lyrical inspiration from legends of old and occultism, the band pays tribute to some of their main influences among the likes of Acid and Iron Maiden. This debut ep contains four well written and executed heavy metal anthems – it’s time to enter the Bazaar of Evil!

DVP 230 Vigilance – Vigilance MLP/MCD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a brand-new mini-album from Slovenia’s VIGILANCE, simply self-titled Vigilance, on CD and 12” vinyl formats.

Born from the cavernous depths of Adelsberg, Slovenia’s VIGILANCE have been unleashing their own brand of heavy metal since Walpurgisnacht 2010. Inspired both by the harmonic arts of the original NWOBHM wave and the sepulchral elements of the first wave of black metal, VIGILANCE have steadily perfected their craft over the past decade-plus,possessing a unique crossover appeal to fans of early Iron Maiden and Mercyful Fate as equally as Venom and Bathory.

However, after years of taking that throwback sound to countless stages across Europe, it was VIGILANCE’s fourth album, Enter the Endless Abyss – released in 2019 by DYING VICTIMS to widespread acclaim – where the band had their breakout moment. Dark and dynamic but galloping gloriously with the eternal luminescence of HEAVY METAL might, Enter the Endless Abyss proved that VIGILANCE had truly nailed their subtly unique sound – and made it more compelling than ever.

And although some three years have passed since that pivotal record, VIGILANCE return with the same fire on the brand-new mini-album Vigilance. Across its five-song/26-minute duration, VIGILANCE’s self-titled salvo goes in an ever-epic direction, maximizing that (memorable) sonic storytelling they so compactly revealed on its full-length predecessor. Everything’s still head- and fistbangingly metal, arguably even more so here – the dual-guitar work is FIRE in the non-flashiest way – but there’s equally a sense of fantastical AOR ala classic-era Rainbow as the record progresses, hitting a heavenly high with nearly-seven-minute closer “Orbis Mundi.” And while VIGILANCE’s execution has never been doubted, on Vigilance do they loosen up a bit and let these more mysterious odes wind and wend with a suitably earthier feel. Put another way, take one look at that gorgeous cover artwork and you KNOW what you’re in for!

VIGILANCE have been aging like a fine wine, and have only grown more potent. Drink deeply of the concise cup that is Vigilance!

DVP 236 Risingfall – Rise or Fall LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Japan’s RISINGFALL, Rise or Fall, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Based in Tokyo, Japan’s RISINGFALL formed in 2014. From the beginning, the band’s foundation has been power-leaning heavy metal with an emphasis on vocal melodies. Stirred into their magickal cauldron are strong doses of NWOBHM, hard rock, and US power metal from the olden days.

RISINGFALL made their recorded debut in 2017 with the Prologue demo. That same year, the Tokyo Metal Fire live EP and “Far Britannia” were both released on Bandcamp. In 2018 came the Cry for the Steel EP, and a year the Arise from the Ashes (蘇る灰) EP. In 2020, at last would all these short-lengths be compiled onto CD format. And while a number of lineup changes occurred, but by 2019 did RISINGFALL finalize the lineup of founding guitarists Yoshiki and Kono, bassist Gyokusai Ishii, drummer Yuki, and erstwhile Military Shadow vocalist George Itoh. While performing live, work begins on the first RISINGFALL album.

At last, it is here, bearing the title Rise or Fall, but it comes not without tragedy: while recording was completed in spring 2021, Yoshiki was hospitalized after suffering from a chronic illness; later, in February 2022, he passes away. Thus, Rise or Fall is a tribute to this fiery six-stringer, and what a monument he leaves behind. Bristling with an energy that draws together the various likes of Saxon, Rainbow, Savage Grace, and especially Vicious Rumors and Michael Jackson-era Satan, RISINGFALL exude high drama and dazzling dynamics steeped in the rich tradition of hard rock and early heavy metal of the ‘70s bursting into the next decade with boundless possibilities. The scythe-sharp production makes Rise or Fall feel tastefully modern, but the band’s highly refined set of influences all gel together into something timeless. Plus, the variety of songcraft across these eight tracks makes each one a stunner on its own while rendering Rise or Fall an album-length experience: each one is undeniably RISINGFALL, but they truly can do it all.

Due to the wishes of Yoshiki and his family, RISINGFALL will continue to perform, and Oyatata from the thrash band Mud Tiger has joined as second guitarist. Rest in power, Yoshiki: Rise or Fall will echo your metalized memory for time eternal!

DVP 237 Witchunter – Metal Dream LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated third album of Italy’s WITCHUNTER, Metal Dream, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Founded in 2007, Italy’s WITCHUNTER began as the manifestation of true heavy metal obsession. Foremost among those metallic obsessions were the NWOBHM, ‘80s European heavy metal and speed metal, and especially ‘70s hard rock sounds and attitude. It all coalesced together into a paradoxically refreshing time-warp where traditional metal in the vein of Angel Witch, Jaguar, Tygers of Pan Tang, and Saxon get the subtlest of twists, not to mention some evil mixing in a manner most Mercyful Fate and Black Sabbath. A true purist’s band, then, but not one that’s just lazy pastiche: WITCHUNTER are the real deal, from the beginning to now!

And now, since long years after their last LP, WITCHUNTER return hungrier than ever! Metal Dream is the name of that long-awaited comeback, and a more simple-yet-sublime title you will not find. Gleaming with a chrome-encased production that’s pure ‘80s valor, WITCHUNTER’s latest spans all the band’s previous styles – dramatic speed metal overdrive, leather-and-chains strut, balls-to-the-wall headbangers – but the pure passion and charisma in which they deliver these nine primary tracks, the seamless expression of HEAVY METAL in ALL its glories, makes Metal Dream astounding to behold. Hooks, solos, aggression, dynamics, high notes, manliness, variety, everything heading out to the highway, and even some tasteful nods to Tony Martin-era Sabbath: it’s a veritable jukebox of ’82-’87, if we’re being specific, although it’s all palatably modern just the same. WITCHUNTER truly LIVE this, and it comes through loud ‘n’ proud in their songwriting.

If your metal heart beats purer than steel, awaken to WITCHUNTER’s Metal Dream!

DVP 238 Dying Victims Vol. 1 – Power Thrashing Death CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the first installation of its new compilation series, on CD format.

Aptly titled “Power Thrashing Death”, this CD contains (sold out) demos/eps by 5 of the most ravaging Speed/Thrash/Death metal acts on the label. All of these have so far been available only on cassette tape and are now unleashed onto a broader mass. Featured bands are Austria’s Death Racer with their first demo “Qualifying” (Black/Speed), Chile’s Hellpossession with their latest demo “Phantom Aggressor” (Black/Thrash/Speed), USA’s Reaver with their debut demo “Butchery from Beyond!” (Death), France’s Savagery with their first ep “Off the Ruins…” (Speed/Thrash) as well as Germany’s Terok Nor with their debut ep “Rematerialization Fails” (Death/Thrash).
A total of 19 tracks – almost 70 minutes of Power Thrashing Death!

DVP 240 Deathstorm – Swarming MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a new three-track demo by Deathstorm, on music cassette format.

Two years after their punishing fourth album “For Dread Shall Reign”, the Austrian three-piece is back with “Swarming”, a new demo. After 15 years of high-quality thrashing in an ever-steady line-up (the band underwent a name change from “Damage” to “Deathstorm” though), the band knows exactly what they are capable of and what kind of sound their creations need. These two originals plus an additional (highly unusual) cover track are the result of their self-recording aspirations – and the sound turned out perfect for this uncompromising death thrash massacre!

DVP 245 Pursuer – Demo 2022 MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the debut demo of Poland’s PURSUER, Demo 2022, on music cassette format.

Having come together in 2021 as a new band, featuring members of Offender and Necromastery, this Polish 4-piece is now ready to unleash their debut demo, simply titled Demo 2022. Drawing influences from the international 80s speed metal scene the band races through four original tracks which are topped off by a high pitched vocalist that will haunt you for far longer than the actual running time.

DVP 244 Megaton Sword – Might & Power LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present MEGATON SWORD’s highly anticipated second album, Might & Power, on CD, music cassette and vinyl LP formats. 

Since their auspicious birth in 2018, there’s been no stopping Switzerland’s MEGATON SWORD. As if their very moniker was a prescient stroke of genius – or, rather, a self-fulfilling prophecy – the once-quartet arrived fully formed with their glorious debut EP, Niralet, in 2019 via DYING VICTIMS. Here, virtually without warning, they evinced an ages-old sound that was wise (and wizened) well beyond their young years. Already, MEGATON SWORD knew the mystery of steel…and wielded it with a startling confidence. Which made their debut album the next year, Blood Hails Steel – Steel Hails Fire, all the more shocking: MEGATON SWORD somehow revealed new twists to that mystery of steel, and further evinced a charisma that was star-power writ large. Again released by DYING VICTIMS, it was no shock that Blood Hails Steel – Steel Hails Fire was hailed far and wide. And yet still, it seemed MEGATON SWORD were only getting started… 

And they’re not finished – not by a long shot – as testified by their second album, Might & Power. Almost absurdly titled in its elegant simplicity, Might & Power might seem on the surface a reiteration of their true-as-steel HEAVY METAL, and to a large degree, that’s correct – MEGATON SWORD are still drunk on high fantasy and the enduring themes of conquest and valor, triumph and tragedy – but the deceptively expansive album sees the now-quintet stretching their sturdy sound in directions more dynamic and extreme. When was the last time you heard actual blastbeats on a true-metal album? Well, you’ll certainly find ‘em here on Might & Power and probably not bat an eyelash, for MEGATON SWORD wield all their weapons effortlessly. What about ‘70s singer-songwriter melodrama, plaintive piano and all? Same here: while far more subtle, the integration of softer, rock-oriented textures makes their metal all the more enduring – and exciting. For if there’s one guiding theme that earmarks Might & Power as MEGATON SWORD’s arguably greatest recording, it’s that the drama is windswept but undeniably human, in all its myriad hues; this may be heavy metal after all, but it’s not “only heavy metal.” Put another way, MEGATON SWORD so deeply understand that mystery of steel that they know when to sheath their (sonic) swords and offer a weathered hand, gently raising up their fallen comrades. Much credit goes to vocalist Uzzy Unchained, whose pipes poignantly narrate this evocative shift. 

With no hyperbole intended, MEGATON SWORD are no longer on the march. They have truly reached the halls of greatness with Might & Power. Hearing is believing, but it just might bring you to tears.

DVP 246 Iron Curtain – Metal Gladiator EP MLP/MCD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a brand-new mini-album from IRON CURTAIN, Metal Gladiator, on CD and 12” vinyl formats. 

For over 15 years now, Spanish metal inquisition IRON CURTAIN have been stalwart defenders of the faith. With a discography that includes four full-lengths and twice as many EPs, splits, and demos, IRON CURTAIN’s ever-sturdy sound was forged in the fires of the early ‘80s: 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. And with the DYING VICTIMS release of career highpoint Danger Zone in 2019, that sound’s become even more rocking than ever. 

And IRON CURTAIN continue that trajectory with a quick-hitting and absolutely electric mini-album titled Metal Gladiator. A smorgasboard of old & new and special all the same, Metal Gladiator includes three new and exclusive tracks – “Crossing the Acheron,” “Burn in Hell,” and the title track “Metal Gladiator” – recorded at their own Gorgon Studios during the latter half of 2021, displaying perhaps their most perfect balance of grit and gleam…total anthems! Then there are three older songs that include special lead-guitar friends: “Rough Riders”with Noboru Jero Sakuma (Gorgon, Abigail, Metalucifer), “Stormbound”with Blumi (Metal Inquisitor, Midnight Rider), and “The Running Man” with Harry Granroth (RAM). And lastly is the brand-new song “Rattlesnake,” which will be on IRON CURTAIN’s forthcoming fifth full-length. Altogether, Metal Gladiator is a new start for the band and resounding reassurance for IRON CULT’s true-metal dominance during their third decade of existence!

RELICS FROM THE CRYPT, the sub-label of DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS dedicated to keeping the past alive, is proud to present a long-overdue reissue of the lone cult album of Belgium’s BUZZARD, Gambler, on vinyl LP and CD formats. The CD version also includes the band’s 1983 demo, A Strange Gang, as bonus tracks. 

Hailing from Menen, West Flanders, Belgium’s BUZZARD initially began as early as 1979 when vocalist Hans Berten (Hanzie) and drummer Dirk Vanhee decided to start a band together. A search for a guitarist and bassist began in earnest, with guitarist Steve Deceuninck and Nick Debeuf (Riff) both joining midway through 1980. Since a bassist was not immediately found, Hans decided to take on bass guitar as well as vocals. The moniker BUZZARD was then chosen, as inspiration was drawn from the band Armageddon, whose 1975 album of the same name featured the song “Buzzard,” which Steve had learned to play on guitar. The band’s first gig took place in February 1981.

Lineup shuffles ensued, but BUZZARD eventually recorded the demo A Strange Gang in 1983, the only official demo they’d record. Their live reputation grew in kind, and the band came to the attention of Antler Records, who signed BUZZARD for a two-album deal. Perhaps not surprisingly, more lineup shuffles ensued two months before recording their debut album and even continued during its recording, but what a record they delivered. 

Titled Gambler, BUZZARD’s first – and sadly, only – album is a poignant snapshot of heavy metal in 1984. Reprising three re-recorded songs from the preceding demo, Gambler bursts and bristles with a youthful energy that’s almost naïve, but endearingly and charmingly so. For BUZZARD were simply a HEAVY METAL band – not strictly speed metal, although they had their share of juiced-up rockers, nor did they have the pout & strut of so much hard rock-leaning metal of the time, and they definitely weren’t thrash, still very much in its nascent days – and one that nodded to both England and Germany, but never too often nor for too long. The album’s first two tracks perhaps spell it out best: “Stone-Hard and Loud” and “We Are Heavy Rockers,” as perfect of an opening combo as there is for the time. And the rest of the record is absolutely spellbinding in its verve and vivacity, with the recording just on the right side of rough. 

Gambler was released at the end of October 1984, and the following week, disaster struck again: Steve was involved in a motorcycle accident and was in a coma for a week and a half, requiring three months of rehabilitation. When Steve was fit again, many gigs followed, including some concerts in France and in the Netherlands. Work then began on the second BUZZARD album, and although the writing process was progressing well and the record was already written, the band found that the fire was actually quietly dying out because of other interests, relationships etc. Thus, in February 1986, the band decided to pull the plug on BUZZARD. 

Now, 38 years later, Gambler will see a well-deserved reissue – and, for the first time ever, on CD as well as vinyl. A BUZZARD reunion is out of the question because Steve has traded in his guitar for a drum kit over the years and also out of respect for Stephan Logie (Elly), who sadly left us in 2018. The former members still see each other regularly at local parties where old memories are made between pot and pint. BUZZARD created a band for life!

DVP 247 Iron Kobra / Atom Smasher – Malicious Magician / The Law 7″

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a split 7” EP between IRON KOBRA and ATOM SMASHER.     

IRON KOBRA should be a familiar name to those who follow DYING VICTIMS, as the Germans have become something of a “flagship band” for the label after their two full-lengths, 2012’s Dungeon Masters and 2015’s Might & Magic. And just as those two albums’ titles (and covers!) display, IRON KOBRA are true-as-steel HEAVY METAL time-locked in 1984! And while it’s been quite quiet on the recorded front since that second full-length (except for the 2017 “Kerker & Drachen” 7”), the bikers from Hell return with a brand-new track here, “Malicious Magician,” that’s a glorious return to form – and shows they’re ready for a gleaming-black new chapter, swords strapped to their iron steeds. On the flip is fellow Germans ATOM SMASHER: despite forming in 2010, it wasn’t until a decade later when they delivered their first EP. And while a four-way split followed the next year, the duo’s spare discography suggests quality over quantity – and that’s what you get with their track here, “The Law,” which is a moody & mysterious epic of equally archaic metal. Bright days ahead for ATOM SMASHER, and DYING VICTIMS is stoked to get their name out there with the ever-reliable IRON KOBRA.
