Not only do you get over 90 minutes of brilliant Doom Metal but also a grandiose 12 page booklet for “From Time… To Eternity” and a 6 page booklet for “Stone Magnum”!

SACRIFICIAL BLOOD “Unholy Fucking Hatred” CD (BREW033)
New Jersey’s heavy metal maniacs SACRIFICIAL BLOOD are thoroughly Crushing The False on this long awaited debut full length. We could just leave it at that but nahh, with a drummer preaching the Glory of Metal accompanied by two ministers of mayhem on bass and guitar these guys look and sound like AUTOPSY playing EXCITER covers and there’s hardly a more direct way to go for the throat than that, is there?! Released in February 2011. Available!
CHAIN OF DOGS “Gebroake, Gehange En Gewroake” CD (BREW032)
On their debut full length (whose title translates to “Broken, Hanged And Avenged”) Holland’s CHAIN OF DOGS have a successful go at the underbelly of Folk music to get to its guts and serve them to you in a bloody mix of Thrash and Punk. Blending the traditional with the loud, these mangy motherfolkers will leave you crushed in their wake, like the heavy boots of miners storming to their favourite pubs after a hard day’s work! Check out songs like ‘Doa Is Mie Land’, or the title track, ‘Gebroake, Gehange En Gewroake’ both sung in their local Limburgian dialect and you will be hooked! No remorse, no regrets… if you hear the howling be sure the DOGS are near! Unleashed in December 2010. Available!
PYÖVELI “Not A God, Just An Executioner” CD (BREW031)
For those that finally recovered from the tire iron to the groin that was “The New Renaissance…” have we got some rather bad news for you! The spiked mail bat delivered this package from Suomi’s filthy Thrashing Militia containing 11 new chapters of raging Thrash Metal insanity somewhere between old SODOM and even older RAVEN. The PYÖVELI maniacs, ever on the Road To Hell, have upgraded from tire iron to bridgepole and they swing it with a vengeance! How are you possibly going to protect your groin and neck simultanously…? You are so thrashed! Released in April 2011. Available!
DEATHHAMMER “Phantom Knights” CD (BREW030)
Listen as the eerie “Cold Winds Of Death” howl and like phantom knights the Norwegian Armoured Assassins rise from the North to ravage, plunder and burn Europe’s shorelines once again. In their wake ride the souls of the departed, barely veiled in their rotten and tattered ’80s Metal shirts. Those who did not sissy out in bunkers and basements during the first raid under the sign of the DEATHHAMMER can testify to the testosterone and alcohol fueled thrash infernö delivered by these warriors. Originally released in September 2010 with a limited number of CDs including a one of a kind T-shirt, reprinted in August 2013. Available!
EVIL SHEPHERD “Sowing Death” CD (BREW029)
Beware the EVIL SHEPHERD’s ‘Satanic Attack’ as he prowls the streets of Belgium pursuing his favourite sport, the ‘Priesthunt’. The soundtrack to this bloody amusement is so close to old SLAYER that one might assume that these guys were fathered backstage after the legendary SLAYER show in Poperinge. Throwing a fistbanging Heavy Metal part into the thrashing cyclone is not beyond the EVIL SHEPHERD, so expect a splendid raging time with this album. Unless you’re a priest. Released in September 2010. Sold Out!
MECHANIX “Sonic Point Blank” CD (BREW028)
One could just state that “this is the best MEGADETH album since “Rust In Piece”” but that would not do these alcohol fueled thrash maniacs from Nürnberg any justice. Clearly, a band called MECHANIX doesn’t even try to hide their inspiration yet the ten tracks contained on this second fulll length go far beyond mere cloning and simply pick up where the original artist lost it almost 20 years ago. Includes 8 additional bonus tracks taken from their 2003 self released debut! Released in June 2010. Available!
HORRIFIER “Grim Fate” CD (BREW027)
As the 80s were drawing their last breath and most people had moved on to Death Metal, Grunge or left altogether, small pockets of resistance metal fighters remained. Bands like ARCANE, KINETIC DISSENT, ICED EARTH, BLACKKOUT or BITTER END were trying to fill the void left by their forebearers and though most of them are forgotten today, they did not have any less talent and deserve to be remembered. Alternating between the realms of Speed, Power and Thrash Metal, New Jersey’s own HORRIFIER (now sadly broken up) follow these traditions on their debut full length, as all 8 songs on their one and only full length clearly show. CD features a guest appearance by ICED EARTH drummer Greg Seymour on ‘Exordium / From Beyond The Grave’. Released in May 2010. Available!
SCYTHE “Season Of The Tall Pines” CD (BREW026)
Germany’s Progressive Death Metal masters are back, with their 4th full length album, this time completely transcending the boundaries of Death Metal and Space Rock! They manage to once more step forward and mesmerize their listeners with psychedelic songs like ‘Dance In The Autumn Breeze’ or ‘The Space We left Behind’ (which is so HAWKWIND you should be required to smoke up before you press “Play”). For all that crave the 70s Rock sound but want a bit of a heavier Death Metal vibe to it for variation, this album is right up your alley! A truly mind blowing combination! Released in March 2010. Available!
TORTURE PULSE “Plague Poetry” CD (BREW025)
Shipwrecked on ‘Graveyard Island’ and awakened are the horrors of the TORTURE PULSE… Summoned forth from an ancient past when Death Metal was still dead, smelled rotten and above all had morbid melodies and was still Metal to begin with and feeding on an equal dose of (old) VITAL REMAINS and NIHILIST (known to late born ones as ENTOMBED…) this Finnish machinery of evil Death Metal is grinding into gear on it’s unstoppable path to certain doom. The ‘Hearse Awaits’ you… but will there be enough of you left to even fill a shoe box…? Released in Febuary 2010. Available!
AMOK “Downhill Without Brakes” CD (BREW024)
After a batch of home brewed demos these fun loving, hard thrashing lads from Glasgow Murder City have honed their brewing skills to perfection, offering this debut full length of premium brand Thrash Metal. With fine ingredients such as HEATHEN, FORBIDDEN, EXODUS, ANTHRAX and SACRED REICH, Global Hangover is certain! Will this advent the rise of “Clyde Bay Area Thrash”? Only time will tell. Released in February 2009. Available!
SALUTE “The Underground” CD (BREW023)
From the dark damp cellars of Bristol, so deep in The Underground that the graffiti on the dungeon walls is still in Latin, these disciples of Dr. Faust stir a vile brew of HELLBASTARD, CELTIC FROST and AXEGRINDER. Seasoned with a healthy dose of MOTÖRHEAD warts, their alcohol fueled brewtality should easily convince every follower of Thrash and Crust alike that this album is a must have! Released in February 2009. Available!
SAURON “Satanic Assassins” CD (BREW022)
The ‘Lords Of Slaughter And Warfare’ are at it again and their sophmore campaign demonstrates they mean business. Carried by a chainsaw bass that has been sorely missing in Metal since the glorious days of SLAUGHTER and VOIVOD (though ORDER FROM CHAOS did come close…) and driven by relentless drums, blistering guitar and roaring vocals this most basic of all possible band line-ups rips through the 7 songs of this album like a Demonic Possession. If you hunger for the dark, chaotic and haunting side of Thrash Metal you can’t go wrong here. Released in December 2008. Available!
MADGOYA “Put Olindrali Avlijanera” CD (BREW021)
Goya, the mythical Serbian dark lord of beer demands souls and these guys from the dank beer cellars of Novi Sad are eager to do their master’s bidding. “Put Olindrali Avlijanera” features alcohol soaked Thrash somewhere between S.O.D. and old TANKARD and songs like Duha Je Ostavila Devojka?! or Prdnio U Fenjer! will leave no throat dry and no neck unsnapped! Includes as bonus their “Number Of The Beers” CDR from 2003, remastered, plus a video for ‘Duha Je Ostavila Devojka’. Released in September 2008. Available!
DEATHHAMMER “Forever Ripping Fast” CD (BREW020)
Bending early SLAYER over a beer crate these Norwegian hellraisers of impurity are ripping it fast in their own twisted way.

Includes their limited demos, “Savage Poser Hunt” and “Wrath Of The Antichrist” as bonus. Originally released in September 2008 with a limited number of CDs including a one of a kind T-shirt, reprinted in August 2013. Available!
IMMACULATE “Thrash, Kill ‘N’ Deströy” CD (BREW019)
Spawned from the unholy communion of early Raven and bands such as DARK ANGEL, HOLY TERROR and DEATH ANGEL, these Swedish bastards just barely escaped the wrath of ThrashZilla and were able to record one huge, raging beast of a debut album that will leave every listener Leveled To The Ground in their wake. Released in March 2008. Available!
REDIMONI “Into The Coiling Arms Of Mayhem” CD (BREW018)
The Spanish Nail Maniacs are back with yet another orgy of Hellish Thrash and infernal vocals. The gnawing hunger caused by “The Onset Of Chaos” MCD in 2005 can finally be satisfied as Redimoni now serve a full platter of hymns of insanity. The Wrath Wars have been declared. There will be no quarter. You have been warned. First 100 copies included a red logo sew on patch (patch version sold out). Released in April 2008. Available!
PYÖVELI “The New Renaissance Of Speed & Thrash Metal” CD (BREW017)
Maniacal, neckbreaking Finnish Thrash for fans of the old German sound! Demonically possessed vocals tear through filthy fast riffs and razor sharp solos!

This version includes as bonus a previously unreleased new song plus sew on logo patch for the first 100 copies (sold out). Released in April 2007. Available!
SCYTHE “Decay” CD (BREW016)
Getting pounded by the heavy oldschool Death Metal of ‘Bitterness’ or floating away on an atmospheric composition like ‘Pretending Not To See’, the new SCYTHE masterpiece offers the perfect mixture between both extremes. Add to that some oriental seasonings for a well rounded and varied 4th album somewhere between UNLEASHED and 90s VOIVOD. Bow to the majesty that is SCYTHE! Released in October 2006. Available!
GAMA BOMB “Survival Of The Fastest” CD (BREW015)
The fantastic debut full length from Northern Ireland based Speed Thrashers GAMA BOMB! On “Survival Of The Fastest”, previously only available as a self released CDR, fiends and mad scientists alike can relish in songs showing influence from bands like AGENT STEEL, DRI, NUCLEAR ASSAULT, ANTHRAX and TANKARD.

REDIMONI “The Onset Of Chaos” MCD (BREW014)
We like to stick to full length recordings but when this mini album of great Thrash Metal from Spain arrived at the brewery, there was no question about it, it had to be BREW014! Contained on this are some of the most insane vocals I’ve heard in a long time! The Redimaniacs combine the old, raw Teutonic sound and the classic, thrashy US style with some hellish Rock’n’Roll and plenty of mid tempo, headbang-inducing riffs! Listen to Set Fire To Their Lands and Thraaaaaash! Released in December 2005. Available!
HAMMERWHORE “Hammerwhore” CD (BREW013)
Texas has bred some great bands and HAMMERWHORE are no exception! Songs like ‘Victim Of Psycho-Toxin’ or ‘Outlet Of Lust’ make the first album of this completely insane US Speed Thrash Metal band a real threat. HIRAX or NUCLEAR ASSAULT fans will absolutely love this, especially the high pitched vocals! The first 100 copies of the CD came with a sew-on logo patch (patch version sold out). Released in October 2005. Available!
DEVIL LEE ROT “Metalizer” CD (BREW012)
The 3rd CD of these pure Metal maniacs around frontman Devil Lee Rot features new material like ‘Pirates Of Hell’ as well as re-recorded older but familier songs like ‘In Hell Where Sinners Burn’ which get a fuller, more explosive sound than previously. If bands like RUNNING WILD, ANGEL WITCH and VENOM get your hair flying then you need this! First 100 copies came with DLR sew on fist logo patch (patch version sold out). Released in August 2004. Available!
SCYTHE “The Process Of Rotting” CD (BREW011)
This compiliation album celebrates SCYTHE’s 10th anniversary with songs mostly taken from their “Last Eclipse” (1999) and “Silent Is The Future” (2001) demos (only available as CDR), rerecorded for this special album.

The first 100 copies come with a sew on logo patch (still available! Last copies). Released in August 2004. Available!
VEXED “Destruction Warfare” CD (BREW010)
This second round of napalm from Italy’s VEXED features more blasting attacks of excellent Blackend Thrash Metal with destructive, bang inducing riffing, maniacal vocals and improved production as can clearly be heard in songs like ‘Nuclear Babylon’ or ‘Warblast’. For all fans of DESTRUCTION, DESASTER, KREATOR! Released in December 2004. Available!
DEVIL LEE ROT “Metal Dictator / Soldier From Hell” CD (BREW009)
Another excellent 2 on 1 release by the master of Blackend Heavy Metal still faithfully sticking to occult NWOBHM / VENOM roots. ‘Oath To Metal’ or ‘Metal Dictator’ would certainly be a great soundtrack for your next beer bash with the buddies! Released in September 2003. Available!
TOXIC HOLOCAUST “Evil Never Dies” CD (BREW008)
The legendary album that started it all! Evil truly Never Dies and to prove it, this army of one from the USA offers this very old school, straightforward Speed Thrash Metal gem with some blackend influences (think old Bathory). WARNING: Do not attempt to operate your CD player with a blood alcohol level LOWER than 0.2%! Songs like ‘Atomik Destruktor’ or the, by now, classic TOXIC HOLOCAUST “hit”, ‘War Is Hell’ are right on the mark. Released in September 2003. Sold Out!
SCYTHE “Poetry Of Illusions” CD (BREW007)
SCYTHE’s 2nd album sees a continuation of the fantastic mix of melody and brutality as heard in songs like ‘Late Summer’ or ‘Castaway’. And as bonus you get a video of the title track of their first album “On My Way Home”. Released in August 2003.
DEVIL LEE ROT “Hellscraper / A Little Devil Ain’t Enough” CD (BREW006)
With music deeply rooted in occult NWOBHM sounds like WITCHFYNDE, CLOVEN HOOF or ANGEL WITCH and vocals like old VENOM or BATHORY, DEVIL LEE ROT deliver their own raw form of Blackend Heavy Metal. ‘Hellmachine’ and ‘Root Of All Evil’ are tasters for two albums on one CD. Released in August 2002. Available!
THE CHASM “Conjuration Of The Spectral Empire” CD (BREW005)
Massive and ancient Mexican Death Metal with many references to aztec mythology. Songs like “Dark Cloud” or “Reveal The Truth” seek to widen the boundaries of Death Metal and succeed. Released in November 2002. Sold Out!
VEXED “Nightmare Holocaust” CD (BREW004)
Manic, wild and highly energized Italian Thrash Metal played with passion and the need to destroy all neck muscles!

Released in July 2003. Available!
THARGOS “Killfukk” CD (BREW003)
Hectic and insane Blackend Thrash Metal that pretty much defies labeling. ‘Godz Of Black Metal’ or ‘Natural Selection’ are deeply rooted in ancient German traditions (SODOM, DESTRUCTION) but these crazy Germans have added many an exotic spice to their musical brew. Released in March 2003. Available!
HATEWORK “Madbent For Disaster” CD (BREW002)
Old school Thrash Metal from Italy in the vein of beeraholics TANKARD or BULLDOZER! Hymns like Madbent For Disaster or (We Are) Alcoholic Abusers are harbingers of total and utter delirium! WARNING: Do not attempt to operate your CD player with a blood alcohol level LOWER than 0.2%! Released in November 2002. Available!
SCYTHE “On My Way Home” CD (BREW001)
After recieving this as a promo to review for the now defunct Metal Gospel online zine, I decided it was time to start Witches Brew!

Released in June 2002. Available!
