SOULSELLER RECORDS - New Signings
Dutch label Soulseller Records is proud to announce two new signings and therefore the first releases of 2016.
PSYCHEDELIC WITCHCRAFT is a project fronted by an Italian doomstress named Virginia Monti. The band was formed in March 2015, living through the imaginary of occult and witchcraft with psychedelic colors and emotions, inspired by the sounds and the pictures of an almost lost era. The EP "Black Magic Man" was released on vinyl in July and sold out in less than 10 days.
The band’s full-length debut "The Vision" will be released via Soulseller Records in spring 2016. Details will be revealed soon. A first song is already available - check out the “Magic Hour Blues“ official lyric video at this location: youtu.be/gvSDMdmOf5Y
The band comments: "We are very happy for the signing with Soulseller Records, We really feel it was the right place for us and they were the ones that shared the most the vision of the band! We can't wait for the release of the new album!"
JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN - Two well-known names in the Death Metal scene are joining forces in this project band which was founded in 2013. True old school to the death – you know what to expect!
Their third full-length album will be released through Soulseller Records in spring 2016. More details will be announced soon.
Rogga Johansson comments: “Me and Paul are very excited to sign to Soulseller Records for our third album with Johansson & Speckmann. So far nine songs have been written and are currently being recorded. Expect more of the same as the previous albums, but with a twist this time, more leadwork from the new addition on lead guitars, Kjetil Lynghaug (Mordenial), and a step up in the masterful drumming of Brynjar Helgetun (Liklukt).”
Paul Speckmann comments: “Speckmann here, really looking forward to working with Soulseller Records. They will be releasing the next killer installment of the Johansson-Speckmann series.”

Pulverised Records - new signing: TEMISTO
Pulverised Records welcomes one of Sweden's most deadly morbid-league: TEMISTO!
Previously under the moniker Chapel, the relentless duo bulldozed through ten blistering tracks on the group's self-titled debut with such raw conviction and unsurpassed songwriting intellect; constantly moving in and out of dissonant territory.
With the now-defunct Morbus Chron frontman Robert Andersson and Elias Scharmer (ex-Abduction, ex-Mutilate) at the producer / engineering helm, TEMISTO's self-titled album was also mastered by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio (Watain, Desultory, Repugnant, etc) with exquisite artwork and layout by Obssessed By Cruelty (Wolfbrigade, Enforcer, Agent Steel, Sabbat, etc).
States Pulverised Records A&R manager Calvin Chiang: "The TEMISTO self-titled album is easily one of the most refreshing stuff we have heard this year and the one thing that caught our attention instantly was how accomplished they are as songwriters, coupled with that organic and honest slab of Death Metal that we rarely hear these days. The level of maturity displayed on the record is just unbelievable and it certainly transcends an aura of otherworldly obscurity that TEMISTO have managed to capture perfectly."
The TEMISTO self-titled effort comes out everywhere on 26th February 2016.
A first track, entitled "Above Sacred Ground", is already available for streaming at this location: soundcloud.com/pulverised/temisto-above-sacred-ground
