XENOKORP to exhume impious DISABLED relics

DISABLED "The Final Exhumation"

The Korporation is proud to announce that lost and found ’90s impious Death Metal relics will soon be added to the Kvlt Series’ pantheon of underground treasures with the September 11 release of DISABLED‘s recently exhumed material known as “The Final Exhumation“.

Found back in legendary artist Crhis MOYEN‘s treasure chest in 2017 and released on (now soldout) cassette in 2018 by ANTI-HUMAN CONSPIRACY Records, this is a raw pre-production session recorded before DISABLED went on to tape their final release, the “Faith Ablation” EP, in 1997.

Carefully remastered at CONKRETE Studio (MERCYLESS, OTARGOS, ANATA…) yet crude and brutal, like real Death Metal should be, “The Final Exhumation” will nevertheless come as a deluxe DigiPak limited edition first print with artwork and layout by afore-mentioned Chris MOYEN (INCANTATION, SARCOFAGO, BEHERIT…) and detailed liner notes by journalist Olivier “Zoltar” BADIN (NOISEY, ZERO TOLERANCE…). Preorders will be launched July 20 at the XENOKORP Store.

While waiting for this new Kvlt Series must-have, DISABLED “Faith Ablation” T-shirts and long sleeves T-shirts are available at the XENOKORP Store here and the band’s complete discography has been made available at the XENOKORP Bandcamp and on all major streaming platforms.

All hail the Green Flesh Messiah!

MERCYLESS open the 7th Gate on the 33th Year.

MERCYLESS "The Mother of All Plagues" [XKR030]

1987 years ago, the bastard son died at 33. On the seventh day of the seventh month, 33 years after its inception in 1987, MERCYLESS will spit its seventh ravenous blasphemy in the face of Christ, opening the seventh gate to Hell, spreading “The Mother of All Plagues” upon mankind!

Definitely the darkest MERCYLESS release so far, the new full-length is, style-wise, somewhere between 1992’s “Abject Offerings” and 2013’s “Unholy Black Splendor” and, while 2016’s “Pathetic Divinity” had somekind of a more Euro-Death vibe to it, “The Mother of All Plagues” has a somehow early ’90s “US Unholy Death” feel that, combined with the trademark MERCYLESS riffing and songwriting, will not only delight their fans, but the genre lovers as a whole!

Featuring eleven anthems of malevolent anti-Christian Death Metal, produced at VAMACARA studio (OTARGOS…) and with impious artwork by Néstor ÁVALOS (BLOODBATH…), “The Mother of All Plagues” will be released on July 7, 2020 via XENOKORP on a variety of CD and Vinyl versions (detailed below) among which “Sovereign Evil” special versions with a bonus CD / LP. Preorders will start May 25. Meanwhile, a first single will be released on April 3rd on all platforms.

Bow to the Rival of the Nazarene!

PUTRID OFFAL announce their new surgery

PUTRID OFFAL (band)

The Korporation is proud to reveal blood will be running free this Spring as PUTRID OFFAL will be back on May 22 with a new surgical butchery titled “Sicknesses Obsessions“!

After their 2015 comeback debut “Mature Necropsy“, the complete re-writing and re-recording of all of their ’90s material, PUTRID OFFAL are now back with a brand new bloody carnage 19 years after their stillbirth!

Recorded and mixed at PSYKRON studio (MERCYLESS, UNDEAD PROPHECIES…) and mastered at CONKRETE studio (OTARGOS, GOROD…) like its predecessor, featuring special guests among which Stéphane BURIEZ (SINSAENUM, LOUDBLAST…) and Arnaud DHENAIN (BLACK BOMB A…), this new platter of splatter splits the torso wide open and extirpates 15 tracks of frenetic anatomical rampage.

For the careful listener and the real fan, PUTRID OFFAL is not the usual “just gore” and has never been, as ever since their cult 1991 split with EXULCERATION, the band featured Gregorian chants and more into their nevertheless viscerally gory Death / Grind. “Sicknesses Obsessions” is no exception and will definitely impress the unsuspecting listener with unpredictable surprises throughout the album making the band really stand out.

Preorders will begin on April 13 for the first batch of deluxe versions: first print on DigiPak CD (limited to 500 copies) will not only feature two bonus tracks exclusive to the support (17 tracks), but also a live DVD of their pathological performance at 2017’s HELLFEST while the two vinyl versions (red, limited to 100 copies and black) will feature another bonus track, again exclusive to this support (16 tracks).

VxPxOxAxAxWxAxMxC crowned “Austrian Dukes of Derangement”

VxPxOxAxAxWxAxMxC (band)

After six long years of wait, misanthropic Austrian snuff fetishists VxPxOxAxAxWxAxMxC will be back with a new EP on February 7, 2020 at long last!

Aptly titled “Austrian Dukes of Derangement“, it features three brand new songs, a GRONIBARD cover version and a special “Sing Mit Fritzi” instrumental version of “Gang-Raped Acranius” that will be the basis of a contest for which people are asked to record, post and send the label “vocal versions”, the best of which, chosen by the band itself, will be featured on the next VxPxOxAxAxWxAxMxC release!

Not only featuring brutal artwork by Matthias AUER for MOTTLA Art (BRAIN DRILL, KRAANIUM, VULVECTOMY…), the EP also features guest vocals by Haruka KAMIYAMA (GOREVENT, MEDIC VOMITING PUS, TRAUMATOMY…) on the song “Against Humans, Against Animals, Against Everything” and a special version of “Gang-Raped Acranius” dubbed “DoG-y Style” for which all vocals are done by the three singers of label-mates DEFECAL OF GERBE, Hervé MOTTE and David and Mickael CHAIGNE, the later two also of SAVAGE ANNIHILATION.

Strictly limited to 500 copies, “Austrian Dukes of Derangement” will come with new T-shirt mocking the “Keep Calm…” meme, reading “Keep Calm and Disembowel Everybody” (band logo on a sleeve, title on the other) with preorders starting Dec.23 at the XENOKORP Store.

PESTIFER sign to the Korporation and announce new album

PESTIFER (band)

The Korporation is proud to announce that Belgian warriors PESTIFER are joining the Xeno-Lords’ armies in their Multiverse War against all life and, in particular, weak Humanity, with the 2020 release of forthcoming third full-length, “Expanding Oblivion“.

Formed in 2004, having released two successfull albums and toured Europe thrice with the likes of KATAKLYSM, KRISIUN and NILE, PESTIFER are known for their unique brand of Death Metal combining mindblowing playing abilities, elaborate riffing and complex song-structures.

With its analog and near-live sound and yet a huge production (mastering by Victor BULLOK (TRIPTYKON, NONEUCLID…), new album “Expanding Oblivion” and its unique Sci-Fi concept that develops in every song and throughout the album as a whole, will clearly demonstrate the band’s seemingly boundless inspiration, bringing them to a new level, pleasing all fans of both old-school Death Metal and modern Tech Death alike, never falling into neither of both actual trends though.

Expanding Oblivion” will be released during the first half of 2020 as a limited edition DigiPak CD first print. Meanwhile, first two albums “Age of Disgrace” (2010) and “Reaching the Void” (2014) have been made available for immediate download / stream on all major platforms, among which the XENOKORP Bandcamp here.

MORTUARY (picture by Davy LETZIEN)

The Korporation is proud to reveal that French Thrash / Death veterans MORTUARY will unleash their sixth studio full-length, “The Autophagous Reign“, on November 8 via XENOKORP.

Recorded, mixed and mastered at world-famous HERTZ studio (BEHEMOTH, VADER, DECAPITATED…) and with artwork by reknown artist Lukasz JASZAK (EMPEROR, BLOOD RED THRONE, VOMITORY…), the album is a frantic, blazing and raging scream of despair and hate towards Humanity and its societal and ecological suicide, depicting mankind as feeding upon the whole of the living, including itself.

Featuring eleven relentless and intense Thrash / Death anthems, this new album, while focused, showcases the babd’s songwriting versatility, from face-ripping Thrashing tornados like opening iron storm “Delete / Replace” or “Cheptel” that don’t even clock in two minutes, to gigantic wrecking balls like songs “Monuments” or “Memorial in vivo” that go beyond seven minutes.

Celebrating the band’s 30th anniversary, the limited edition DigiPak CD first print will feature not less than three bonus tracks, all being brand new recordings of songs from MORTUARY‘s demo days. A “Mailorder Collector Edition”, exclusive to the band and label, will even add a bonus CD featuring eight exclusive preproduction versions of tracks from the album. Both versions, plus digital and new merch, will be available for preorder September 30.

A Thrash / Death feast to say the least!

MITHRIDATIC reveal all details of new album “Tetanos Mystique”

MITHRIDATIC "Tetanps Mystique" [XKR024]

The Korporation is proud to announce the new MITHRIDATIC album, “Tetanos Mystique”, has been scheduled for a September 13 release date.

Three years after its impressive debut full-length, “Miserable Miracle“, soon followed by a full Europe tour with NILE and MELECHESH and a year after audio and video digital live album “He Who Lies underneath“, MITHRIDATIC return with a grim, sick and twisted new album, again
mixed and mastered by Francis CASTE at SAINTE MARTHE studio (SINSANEUM, ARKHON INFAUSTUS, DEHUMAN…).

Based on books by Roger GILBERT-LECOMTE, Louis-Ferdinand CELINE and Charles BUKOWSKI, “Tetanos Mystique” is a nauseating beast of infectious Blackened Death Metal that twists rusted knives deep into your soiled wounds, with a rictus sardonic and a fetish for madness, fever and disease, the absence of morals and the void you’re definitely not prepared for!

The album will be available as a 500 copies limited edition DigiPak CD first print and Digital along with new merch. Preorders will start August 5th.
