IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a special split 7" between two of black metal's most prolifically yet consistently powerful bands, Australia's ILL OMEN and Chile's SLAUGHTBBATH. Aptly titled Pestilential Hierophanies, the record features an exclusive song from both bands and jaw-dropping foldout artwork courtesy of Nekronikon. ILL OMEN are on Side A, and in "Whited, Pestilent Sepulchre..." deliver a slow-burn monolith of magisterial might, exploding into dizzying, delirium-inducing frenzy by song's end. On Side B, SLAUGHTBBATH deliver one of their most epic and dynamic tracks yet with "Inverted Hierophany," rolling forward with a tense 'n' dense stomp before likewise exploding into bestial savagery. Although seemingly a tease from two bands who rarely put out full-lengths in relation to the rest of their respectively vast discographies, Pestilential Hierophanies is an indispensable expansion into the equally nightmarish worlds both SLAUGHTBBATH and ILL OMEN inhabit.

TEMPLE NIGHTSIDE 'The Hecatomb' Iron Bonehead Productions

 : TEMPLE NIGHTSIDE - The Hecatomb :
Iron Bonehead Productions sets August 5th as the international release date for Temple Nightside's highly anticipated second album, The Hecatomb. For the last five years, mainman IV has been pursuing a bleak 'n' oblique vision of death metal. Although rooted in the vast and vibrant Australian black metal scene, the mysterious IV invested the blackest of arts into ancient Metal of Death, initially self-describing Temple Nightside as "Ritualistic Death Metal Necromancy." And indeed, that was the root - and result - of the then-duo's massive debut album, Condemnation, in 2013. But with last year's coveted split LP with comrades Vassafor - released to critical acclaimed by Iron Bonehead, and the lineup now expanded to a trio - the sound of Temple Nightside subtly began to morph into more atmospheric and more deeply cavernous shapes. Alas, with Temple Nightside's lineup now a functioning a quartet, those shapes have arisen in the form of The Hecatomb. Ever so aptly titled, The Hecatomb is lumbering, lurking menace and miasmic dread dragged to the Beyond and back. It's tangibly still death metal in nature, but there's a certain sinister sensation that eludes conventionally metallic definition; its hulking plod gives way to bestial pulse and then evaporates into a smokestack-dense fog of frightening, palpable evil. The manner in which these nine tracks - three of which are concertedly dark-ambient "Commune" soundscapes - burst forth and then billow away suggest ritualistic disintegration...or more accurately, transcendence.
"A slow descent into Hell" is an oft-misused/abused appellation for sepulchral death metal, but it truly is done justice here. Abyssal sound devoted to and driven by death worship: Temple Nightside's The Hecatomb shall stand as a new golden pillar of fathomless morbidity. Hear the first foundation of that pillar with the track "Adrift in Sepulchral Entropy" exclusively at Iron Bonehead's Soundcloud:

T-shirts will also be available August 5th via Iron Bonehead

Black metal has long been a vehicle of choice for an individual to express oneself independently and solitarily, albeit with differing degrees of success depending on the quality of the artist’s songwriting ability and musicianship. When these two attributes are of a higher caliber, a one-man entity completely devoid of the potential need to compromise his vision with those of a group of collaborators can flourish. Perhaps it is for this very reason that IV, the lone member of Ill Omen, has again succeeded in creating some of the most resonant black metal of recent times with “Æ​.​Thy​.​Rift,” the band’s third full-length album and its fourth release on Nuclear War Now! Productions. As with Ill Omen’s previous output, “Æ​.​Thy​.​Rift” exudes an organic continuity within each song and across all tracks on the album, which is an outcome often not realized when multiple songwriters and musicians are employed. This consistency is achieved by the implementation throughout of dual bass guitar layers (one clean and one distorted), notably skeletal percussion, the churning, choir-like atmosphere of tremolo-picked guitars, and a blend of chanted, whispered, and traditional black metal vocals. The singularity of this release is further cemented by the lack of distinction in track titles, a characteristic which serves to present the album as a sum of inseparable parts. In other words, and especially given the ritual-like quality of the record in its entirety, it is safe to interpret each track as a necessary component of a collective opus whose individual pieces were not created with the ability to sustain themselves independently of the work as a whole. What most readily sets this particular release apart from previous Ill Omen recordings is a more dedicated adherence to slower, more doom-oriented tempos, which are very well suited to this ceremonial variety of black metal. The listener may very well be left with the impression that this is the soundtrack in the mind of a disease-ridden being on its deathbed, at times feeling an almost celestial bliss at peace with the impending end of suffering, but at other times tormented by the physical and spiritual decay that will inevitably lead to its ruin.

- 140g Black Vinyl
- Limited To 500 Copies

Hot on the heels of their Demise Rites demo collection released on vinyl by IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS, Australia's EUCHARIST return with a brand-new mini-album entitled Endarkenment, set for release on 12" vinyl via IRON BONEHEAD. The band's first new material in nearly five years, Endarkenment is fittingly titled: as much as it illuminates a new side to EUCHARIST, it simultaneously dives deeper into the darkest recesses of the duo's sound. Granted, the atavism/primitivism is still firmly rooted in such ancient gods as Archgoat and Demoncy, but Endarkenment runs counter to so much rote "bestial metal" by exploring the doomiest netherworlds inherent in the idiom - and more often than not, the notes in between. Still barbaric and disgusting, Endarkenment offers a more immersive experience, invoking ritualistic possession and nocturnal obeisance; as such, each side of the record is its own unified work, its own equally-ghastly headspace. Mystery and malignancy have become hallmarks of EUCHARIST, and with Endarkenment, their un-comforting white web of death looms larger than ever.

EUCHARIST - Demise Rites (Demo Collection) 12" MLP 2015

'Demise Rites' (Demo Collection) 12" MLP 2015

- 300gsm Jacket With Matt Varnish & Inside Flooded In Black
- 140g Black Vinyl
- Limited To 500 Copies
IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a special vinyl pressing of EUCHARIST's Demise Rites demo collection. Comprising two cassettes from 2011 - the selfsame Demise Rites debut and Tenebrous Summoning later that year, both limited to 50 copies but only half of which were circulated on dubbed tapes and Xeroxed covers - the full six-track compilation of Demise Rites introduced this solitary Australian to the metal underground with an air of mystery and malignancy. However, the label who released the Demise Rites compilation folded in 2012 not long after its release, which was limited to only 100 copies. Now, immortalized on vinyl, EUCHARIST shall have its rightful opportunity to infect more listeners worldwide and with ever more diseased tones than before. Remastered by BR especially for vinyl, Demise Rites is an absolutely punishing and overwhelming experience considering all material was recorded on a broken analog 4-track tape machine. Verminous and archaic, EUCHARIST hails such gods of primitivism/atavism as Archgoat and Demoncy, and suitably create an un-comforting white web of death, heaving and hulking in its lurking menace. Death, rebirth...behold EUCHARIST's Demise Rites.
