Speckmann Project

SPECKMANN PROJECT

Paul Speckmann has been synonymous for “Metal” ever since 1982, since helping put together his first professional Doom Metal band War Cry. In 1983 he started Master as a thrash metal band. Due to internal problems, it was put on hold and Speckmann started another band, called Death Strike in 1984 for which he recorded one demo, which was later released on Nuclear Blast with different tracks recorded later in 1991, as an album.

After obtaining a deal for Abomination in 1989 on Nuclear Blast, Master was approached a week later, and Master re-surfaced to record a full-length album as well. The band subsequently broke up in its original form two days after the recording.

The previous two original members were replaced shortly afterward by Aaron Nickeas, from Abomination on drums, and Jim Martinelli from Burnt Offering on guitars. This period was followed by the Fleische tour with Master as headliner, Abomination as support, and Pungent Stench in the middle of both acts. Nickeas and Speckmann played in both groups for 26 dates on this tour.

Speckmann also re-recorded the self-titled debut album with some different track as well, which was really some of the Master songs re-recorded with Martinelli and Nickeas. Nuclear Blast turned this down, and decided to remix the original previous recording with Schmidt and Mittelbrun. The recording with Martinelli and Nickeas was then released as the Speckmann Project. Speckmann also played, and wrote all the songs for Abomination and recorded two albums with them.

He also played in the Master-Krabathor side-project Martyr and released one album with the troops! Speckmann and the band Krabathor, with which he played four years also recorded two albums together. In 2013, the American musician (currently living in the Czech Republic) also started a death metal project with hyperactive Swedish guitar player Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Ribsbreader, Down Among The Dead Men, etc)..

Now, the Speckmann Project resurfaces to continue the legend…

SON OF A SHOTGUN

SON OF A SHOTGUN

Son Of A Shotgun started in 2015 in Norway, Kristiansand, by the mind & hand of the guitar player Ivan Meathook Gujic of Norway’s meanest death metal band Blood Red Throne. SOAS started as a one-man band, with Meathook serving as the songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. The debut album “Mexican Standoff”, released in 2017, featured Jan Axel Blomberg “Hellhammer” (Mayhem, Acturus), Damege Karlsen (Breed, Chrome Division), and Maurice Adams (Breed, Motorfinger).

After the release of “The Mexican Standoff” Meathook kicked off a Norwegian tour, covering all the biggest cities and headlining the Southern Discomfort festival. In their touring, SOAS even played with Cannibal Corpse and made a documentary of it. 2018 was the year of the SOAS zombie squad. The project turned to a full line-up, with some of the best extreme musicians in Norway. The mind-blowing debut of the band happened in Oslo in 2019. Fully uniformed, war-painted. A military precision gig.

In 2021 the band signed to Emanzipation Productions and announced a new album, “Be For Oss Alle”, to be released in September.

Line-up:
Kriss “The Fuze”: drums
Stian “Gundownyourson”: bass

HELLSWORD

HELLSWORD

Slovenia’s answer to the first wave of black metal, HELLSWORD’s goal has always been to exhume the most ancient blackened speed metal out of the crypt it had been unrightfully interred into. Formed in 2009, the band has developed a cult following after the release of their demo ”Blasphemy Unchained”.

Drawing influence from early black metal pioneers such as Venom, Bathory, and Hellhammer as well as newer bands like Destroyer 666 and Nifelheim with an added touch of heavy metal, the trio comprised of Mark Massakre, Mike Manslaughter, and Ironfist now returns with their first full-length album, “Cold Is The Grave” to be released in September via Emanzipation Productions. It builds upon the band’s previous work with nine tracks ranging from face-melting speed to slower paces and dealing with topics such as devil worship, the end of the world, death, desolation, mortality, and the absurdity of human existence.

Ever since its formation, the trio has been dedicating themselves to the pursuit of bringing back the sound, feel, and atmosphere of the first wave of black metal. The band has, besides the now cult demo “Blasphemy Unchained” also released the “Sounding the Seventh Bell” EP and has played numerous shows both in Slovenia and abroad.

Lineup:
Mike Manslaughter: bass
Mark Massakre: drums
Ironfist: guitars, vocals

ENSANGUINATE

ENSANGUINATE

Ensaguinate is Slovenia’s putrid entry into the death metal grimoire of old, performing sinister sounds inspired by Possessed, Morbid Angel, Grotesque and Nihilist, along with a somber tinge of black metal. The mission statement behind Ensanguinate is to play death metal with an occult 80’s atmosphere that adheres to the original morbid vision of the genre before it experienced mainstream appeal. All of these traits are encapsulated within the group’s catchy and pummeling debut EP, “Entranced by Decay”, featuring four songs of fast, abrasive death, that will be released by Emanzipation in May.

Formed in 2020, Ensanguinate originally released “Entranced By Decay” as a demo to positive reviews in August 2020. Four tracks of blistering death metal described by US heavily trafficked website No Clean Singing as “An electrifying, neck-cracking romp packed with jittery and jolting fretwork as well as monstrous echoing growls and livid howls”.

In addition to garnering online praise, Ensanguinate has also managed to navigate the global plague and perform live; the band is looking to hit the road as soon as the pandemic lets up and is already hard at work on their debut LP to be released by Emanzipation Productions.

Line-up:
Andrej Čuk – guitars, vocals
Jaka Črešnar – guitars
Miha Šinigoj – bass
Rok Lukavečki – drums

Tardus Mortem

TARDUS MORTEM

Tardus Mortem is a Blackened-Death metal band from funen Denmark, which sole purpose is to suffocate the listener in ominous tales of Christ and providence by using their instruments to create morbid melodies enchanting the impending Armageddon. The band consists of Dennis Strømberg, age 20 (ex-Black Tritonus ex-Human Mutilation, Apocalyptic Frost, Rancid Pus) on drums and vocals, Lasse Usbeck Andresen, age 22 (ex-Ilumize, ex- Human Mutilation) on guitar and vocals and Christian Baier Rasmussen, age 22 (ex-Error 404 ex-Dark Marshall) on bass and vocals.

Forming back in 2015 with Strømberg, Jonas Jørgensen on bass and Christian Stahl on drums, this lineup only produced one demo the “Reincarnated Through Bloodshed” demo, before the lineup fell apart. Through the years 2016 and 2017 Dennis created and recorded the “As Life Ends” demo, with the goal of continuing the band in a darker and more desolate style of death metal.

The “reformation” came in 2017, where Dennis switched to drums and Lasse and Christian joined the band on guitar and bass. The intention was to create music that echoes the bowels of hell. By using lower tuned guitars, guttural hymns, and intense drums. That vision has remained since then in the band. Though the “Engulfed in Pestilent Darkness” album, the hymns have only gotten more desolate and Apocalyptic. Which has come across the few concerts the band has played from 2017 to now. And that comes across on the new album, “Armageddon”, to be released on Emanzipation in September 2021.

Line-up:
Dennis Kruse Strømberg: drums, vocals
Lasse Usbeck Andresen: guitars, vocals
Christian Baier Rasmussen: bass, vocals

After a few hints to reunite, the third album finally saw the light of day in 2009. Now, powered with the new blood brought by Taylor and Marcel Salas, Solstice is back in full force, with an impressive display of power in the form of the fourth album, “Casting The Die”.

Wayward Dawn

WAYWARD DAWN

Hailing from the soil of Skanderborg, Denmark, Wayward Dawn play gritty, primal and utterly nasty death metal. The band drags you into a world of vicious nihilism and assaults you with grimy bass, cavernous drums and downtuned guitars played through classic Marshall amps. Venomous words of human and societal decay complete the picture with savage roars, abysmal growls and rotten shrieks.

Since their formation in October 2015, Wayward Dawn have, among other things, played at Aalborg Metal Festival, UHØRT Festival and SPOT Festival, and supported bands like Nailed to Obscurity (DE), Blood Red Throne (NO) and BAEST (DK). With mentions in prominent magazines such as Metal Hammer and GAFFA, the band is known for its hyper-energetic live shows with constant use of the windmill headbanging technique and manic interaction with the audience.

With the release of their critically acclaimed debut album “Soil Organic Matter” in 2018 and more than 40 gigs in Denmark and Germany, Wayward Dawn have slowly but surely crawled their way up from the underground to spread the word of their filthy death metal.

After signing with Danish record label Mighty Music, Wayward Dawn released their sophomore album “Haven of Lies” on April 10th, 2020. The album was met with widespread acclaim and entered the official Danish vinyl chart as #25.

Already the same year as the latest release “Haven of Lies”, the band is back with two-song release “House of Mirrors”, set to be released digitally via Emanzipation Productions on December 11th and on cassette via Molten Face Records. The release is, like the two previous albums, recorded and produced by Jacob Bredahl in Dead Rat Studio and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Nails, Full of Hell).

Line-up:
Jakob Kristensen: Guitar
Rasmus Johansen: Guitar/Vocals
Kasper Szupienko Petersen: Bass/Vocals
