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 […]
Although a brand-new entity, DARKENED host a wealth of experience in the death metal underground, comprising drummer Andy Whale (ex-Bolt Thrower / Memoriam), bassist Daryl Kahan (Funebrarum), vocalist Gord Olson (Ye Goat-Herd Gods / Demisery), and guitarists Linus Nirbrant (A Canorous Quintet / This Ending) and Hempa Brynolfsson (Excruciate / Ordo Inferus). Band is […]
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. Undoubtedly inspired by Gorguts, Voivod, and Australia’s Stargazer and yet finding contemporaries in Blood Incantation […]

Interviewed by Johnny Døden for ECP. Avé Hanna. Your chosen tracks for […]
This conversation took place at a sidewalk café in Oslo, and during that hour, a young man in a red suit passed by, and a car with one of those special made license plates…the ones that cost about 9000 NOK, and it read “NO WIFE”. At least it’s better than “NO WI-FI”. But now we […]
Her følger noen nedtegnelser fra en samtale mellom referent og trommeslager og låtsnekker Kristoffer Vold. For ordens skyld: Samtalen fant sted på en fortauskafé i Oslo, og i løpet av den snaue timen den foregikk, gikk der forbi en stilig herre i rød dress og en bil kjørte forbi med spesialbestilt nummerskilt, sånne som koster […]

Don’t miss out on the upcoming tour from Tortorum w/ Fides Inversa and Horna. Due to conflicting events, Dirge Rep will not be attending the first 2 shows, but will be still performed with a stand in drummer.
INCULTER – Persisting Devolution (Edged Circle Productions) It’s been a while since a record got my head banging like this one. Inculter is a group of VERY young guys from Norway (all between 16 and 19) that plays some of the finest Thrash Metal you’re bound to hear for a while. Drawing influences from early […]
Due to unforeseen events, Dirge Rep will not be attending the Tortorum tour for the two first dates. Stand in drummer will be Elefterios Santorinios from Aeternus.
Hailing from the west coast of Norway, INCULTER first burst onto the scene with the Stygian Deluge 7″ EP in 2013: It sold out within two week from EDGED CIRCLE, and the cassette version was gone within a day. From there, the still-very-young band were voted “Band of the Week” by Darkthrone’s tastemaking Fenriz. Carrying forward that […]
