Debut EP, « Faces », available for preorder.

Tanquam Aegri Somnia artists SOURCES OF I (Bulgaria), who feature Déhà (We All Die (laughing), C.O.A.G., Merda Mundi, Yhdarl…) on bass and vocals, are releasing their debut EP, « Faces », on August 14th, 2015 as a strictly limited edition of 500 copies as Deluxe three panels DigiSleeve CD (NO future reprint!) and, of course, digital.

Mixing influences of the current Doom-ridden Black Metal scene with elements of old-school Norwegian Black Metal, SOURCES OF I are unleashing an atmospheric and progressive, dark, beautiful and sorrowfull yet fast and brutal at times, piece of dark arts that's slowly growing on the listener's mind, trapping him (or her, of course) in a mesmerizing abyss of twisted aural poetry. Cvlt Nation said about it it's « a good reminder that darkness can also be beautiful ».

sign to Kaotoxin ; announce September 2015 Europe Tour.

Kaotoxin is very happy to announce the inking of a multi-album deal with Switzerland's rocking machine THE ERKONAUTS.

Founded in 2014 by ex-Sybreed, Djizoes and 7-tone members, THE ERKONAUTS are one of the most dynamic and hardworking bands out of Switzerland today. Playing a very high octane style of their very own, the band strives to pack kick-ass modern power, execution and production with subtle vintage tones and a musical taste that encompasses genres as diverse as Progressive Metal, Fusion, Rock, Thrash Metal, Crossover Metal, Punk, Power Metal, Alternative Metal and whatnot.

The first print of their 2014 debut full-length, "I Did Something Bad" (soon followed by the "All the Girls Should Die" single in 2014 too), got sold out in no time while the band was embarking on a world tour that already drove them from Europe to USA, Japan, China and Taiwan. A new edition has soon been released and will most surely be sold out after the band's forthcoming September 2015 « The Great Suppositour » Europe Tour.

Currently confirmed tour dates (more TBA):
  • 02.SEP.2015 – FR – Reims
  • 03.SEP.2015 – BE – Liège
  • 05.SEP.2015 – NL – Emmen
  • 09.SEP.2015 – DE – Chemnitz
  • 11.SEP.2015 – BE – Eernegem
THE ERKONAUTS will be in the studio in August to record some new tracks. The new album should be released during the second half of 2016.


« Mature Necropsy » to be released on vinyl ; new live video unleashed.

PUTRID OFFAL's critically-acclaimed and successfull debut full-length (first press sold out within weeks) featuring guest appearances by Loudblast's S. Buriez on vocals and guitars and Noise Emission Control's F. Blauwblomme (ex-Khromadeath) on vocals throughout the album, will be released as a 12" LP coming as both a 100 copies collector edition red LP or 400 copies limited edition black LP. Both versions will feature the two bonus cover versions (SOD and Nerve) that can also be found on the CD first and second prints.

Set for a November 13th worldwide release date, the album has been specifically remastered for analog physical supports at the Conkrete Studio (Otargos, We All Die (laughing)…).

In other Putrid Offal news, the band also just unleashed a live music video for the song "Purulent Cold" taken from "Mature Necropsy". It's been shot at their May 23rd 2015 comeback gig, the first gig in nearly 20 years!, with their brand new drummer, Laye of Dehuman, blasting the skins. You can watch it in the post below.

Putrid Offal are currently working on the follow-up to "Mature Necropsy" as well as the LP version of "Premature Necropsy: the Carnage Continues" to be unleashed sometimes in 2016 through The Crypt and will play the following festivals. More to be announced soon:
  • Sep.04 - FR – Fall of Summer
