AngelBlast

Although a brand-new entity, ANGELBLAST hold a wealth of experience within their ranks, featuring members from old-school Swedeath cult Excruciate as well as fellow labelmates DARKENED.

We just signed Speedkiller from Brazil to ECP, and I could not be happier with this. Ive been such a lover of South American metal since late 80s, so it is such an experience to stumble upon such bands like this TODAY which seem more or less untouched by influences outside their great country. It was pretty […]

We’ll cut this story short: Our manufacturers courier service lost one of our parcels of the first edition, this resulting in 100 people NOT getting their orders in due time.

Teleport

One of the most singular bands orbiting the death metal underground in the past decade, TELEPORT formed in 2010 in Ljubljana, Slovenia and promptly set course for a prodigious schedule of self-released demos, each one perfecting their slithering, shapeshifting sound.
