The band’s new album "Magna Adversia" will be released on 3rd March 2017 and offers ten tracks under the tenuous line between Black Metal and experimental avant-garde music, mixing the South American metal madness with the classic and dark Scandinavian vein.

The album "Magna Adversia" definitely marks a new stage in our music and Patria history. We have been worked with full force along this entire year on this record, in a way we never did before, doing experiments on rehearsals, pre-productions and trying to synthesize in a very cool and dynamic way all our musical energy during these 8 years since our formation. This album carries our sweat, blood and soul, for real! It’s really special!”.

GUTTER INSTINCT - Deal with Pulverised Records
Pulverised Records is immensely proud to welcome one of the most sinistrous Swedish chainsaw-horde to come out from recent years GUTTER INSTINCT!
Formed only in 2012, GUTTER INSTINCT quickly gained underground attention with their unconventional matrimony between the ferocious HM-2 buzzsaw sound, the early American Death Metal influences and the abrasive misanthropic nature of Black Metal; the end result is a monstrous blend of huge crushing riffs raining down like an avalanche but with a tinge of melodic sensibility reminiscent of their Swedish counterparts.
GUTTER INSTINCT are slated to enter studio once again in April 2017 for the group's sophomore record, more details on the progress of the new album will be announced soon.
In an official statement by the band: "GUTTER INSTINCT is very thrilled to have signed with Pulverised Records for our sophomore album. This is a label with eyes and ears towards the underground that, like us, is totally dedicated to the extreme Metal scene. With our second album, we will plunge headfirst into the maelstrom and dive even deeper into the wretched abyss that is blackened Death Metal. We will enter the studio in April to record eight annihilating songs of bitterness and loathing towards this world."
Pulverised Records A&R manager Calvin Chiang also commented: When we first heard GUTTER INSTINCT, we immediately realized that they have a pretty special knack on the songwriting department; they weren't just doing the safe and standard fanfare Swedish Death Metal way which can sometimes be a major hit or miss. We also felt that the band was still hungry, thriving and had an abundance of potential, so it was a no-brainer when they approached us to do the next record and we certainly hope we can bring GUTTER INSTINCT to the next level. As it is, the last GUTTER INSTINCT record "Age Of The Fanatics" is already on my Top 10 Albums for 2016 and it's definitely great to be working alongside one of our favorite bands."
LUNAR SHADOW - "Far From Light" - Debut album announcement
LUNAR SHADOW is a young German band that we think perfectly incarnates the spirit of Cruz Del Sur Music.
Led by guitarist Max “Savage” Birbaum, they have worked their way to the debut LP with patience and extreme dedication. After the release of their first EP ‘Triumphator‘ in 2015 (nominated "Demo Of The Month" on German Rock Hard magazine) LUNAR SHADOW played a number of selected live shows including Harder Than Steel and other appearances together with Atlantean Kodex, Dark Forest, Argus.
One year after there are tales of strange sounds in the hills. Chariots are being prepared for war. Women and children are fearful. LUNAR SHADOW have returned!
"Far From Light" delivers eight brand new songs for a playing time of over 60 minutes. Epic, melodic, thoughtful and proudly regressive. The way we like it! The album will be released in Europe on February 24, 2017, an American release date has been set for March 10, 2017.
