Miriquidi Records offered the opportunity to this Lithunian band to release a fine piece of Epic Black Metal, with a extremely crude production. The inlay card is a gatefold cover. No lyrics are included.

This EP gathers an Obscurity cover "Mortal Remains" played by Repugnant, while Pentacle included "The Beasts Of The Apocalypse" from Possessed which was meant to be on a Possessed tribute (out in 2004 through Hammerheart)

Actually this release contains the vinyl with "Impaled Nazarene 7EP" sticker on, but the music is really Profanatica. This error comes from the pressing plant, only 30/40 copies have this particularity.

The EP contains two songs from "Diabologue" demo tape "Tyranny Of The Gods" and "Ascent Of Man". The lay out is pretty fine with lyrics in the gatefold. Musically Razor Of Occam plays a killer Aussy Death/Thrash Metal.

Excellent vinyl with terribly great lay out (black drawings on dark red background) with 2 killer tunes from these bands. Rott's song Anicent Mysteries" is an unreleased material, while "And the Hunt Starts Again", Atomizer's tune features on as the 2 tracks of "The Only Weapon of Choice"

The allies of the two label gave a fucking blasting EP with it comes to the image on the Picture Disc. This EP is really heavy and of top quality. Some of the information are written in Japanese which turns the material into something even more exotic. The vinyl comes with a thick info sheet. Tunes are "Satanician" and "Gokkanma"

Another ultra rare EP from these Japaneese warriors through the East European part of their Harmageddon series. This EP comes with a "like Japanese" lay out, which means this right side cardboard added to the normal carboard with recording information.The songs from this EP are "Sabbat" and "Snow Woman". Note the rather tasteles frog cover

Musically this EP is a real killer one with tunes such as "Angel Of Destruction", "Kamikaze Bomber", "Darkness And Evil", . When it comes to the lay out, we've a typical old school one here, with classic demon draw and a back cover photo. Unfortunetely the vinyl hasn't any info sheet with lyrics

Nice cover for this split with Unpure, through a descent glossy cardboard. The tunes from each band are killer, Sabbat comes with "Transmigration Of the Soul", Unpure with "Warfare" and "War Of Vengeance". The shame is there's no info sheet with lyrics. The 111 first EP are red while the 555 are clear/Black splatter

This EP is the French Hamrageddon from a very long serie of different EPs. Shaxul from Legion Of Death Records sings on this records and Yohta from HMSS label does the back vocals. The cardboard is tick, but it seems the back cover fucked up a bit with the colours as the orange-red turns a bit blur.

That's a nice split EP with two Japanese combos. The lay out of this EP is pretty average especially for the cover image of both band, but excepted for that the music is once again a great Metal moment. The inlay card is a glossy pro printed thine cardboard. Sabbat's song is "Rain Of Terror", Gorgron "A Fool In Love"

The vinyl is star shape, with Japan flag colour. Contains 2 tunes : "Fetu", "Hell Of The Voltage" (Japanese version). This is the typical Japanese material with a strange cover and funny pictures of Sabbat. There's no info sheet about songs, nor lyrics which is a shame as there's no explanation about the title EP and so on. This is the shape version, as opposed to the normal one.

The vinyl comes with a glossy black and white poste from this area and lyrics on a little page sheet.Great stuff. Note that "Wolf Man" also appears on Metalucifer's album "Heavy Metal drill"

Wonderful release with "Morbid Faith" tune from "Impending Doom" MLP (it's a new version of the song) and "the Exorcist" (Possessed cover) with Jeff Becerra as guess vocals. The colour of the vinyl is not but astonishing. If all the 7EP could be like this one : heavy vinyl, info sheet, coloured disc... !!!!

"War Cerimonial Hail" release is rather in the strick B.M field, with black and white lay out, xeroxed paper but their music is rather great Norwegian like B.M. Nothing to complain about here.Some of the tracks are taken from "the Dark Triumphator" '96 demo tape This band gathered members from Death Dies and Evol.

Even though there's no info sheet with the release, the music aspect of this EP is fucking fabulous symphonic B.M in the 90's vein. Nothing to complain about.
