EREB ALTOR - Album details revealed
Sweden’s EREB ALTOR return with a very special Vinyl-only (and digital) release and present an awesome BATHORY tribute album to honour Quorthon with all their heart and soul!
"Blot - Ilt - Taut", which is old Swedish and means “Blood - Fire - Death”, will be released on March 11th 2016 through Cyclone Empire. The album was mixed and mastered by Jonas Lindström at Studio Apocalypse. The cover artwork and layout was done by Robban Kanto.

Mats / EREB ALTOR comments: “During the years of EREB ALTOR I have often been confronted with these words: ‘You should record some BATHORY hymns!’. And recently this has happened more frequently, perhaps due to the fact that we at some rare occasions have done a BATHORY song or two live. This has been haunting my mind. If we would do this, how should we do this? There is only one answer to that question: WE WILL DO IT FROM THE HEART! And for us it was also important to put our EREB ALTOR touch on these magnificent works of Quorthon. The classic albums that I grew up with are closer to my heart than the post “Twilight of the Gods” albums. So we decided to do only songs from the classic albums. So many great songs to choose from! Let’s make a full album while we’re at it. So it shall be done! Our next release “BLOT - ILT - TAUT” will contain seven Bathory hymns interpretated by EREB ALTOR.”

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.”
