• HYBORIAN STEEL and BLOOD STORM pre-orders are starting NOW !

    22 aug 2014, 14:57 av BarbarianWrath

    Word from the Witch is that the new CDs of HYBORIAN STEEL and BLOOD STORM will arrive at the gates of the BARBARIAN WRATH dungeon in one week. Along with two new brews of ALITOR and TYRANT'S KALL so there will be a string a mail trucks rolling up to our dungeon or how else are they planning to deliver all this heaviness in just one shipment.? I hope the sudden movement of such mass won't cause a Polar Jump or a shift of the Earth's axis but in case it does and global electricity will fizzle out for a month or two you'll probably want to pre-order these fine releases right away at the brand new WITCHES BREW store @

    17 aug 2014, 10:58 av BarbarianWrath

    I have dreamed you from the Howling Void!
    May the fallen gods boil with madness!
    I have heard your phantoms from the howl in the void
    Burning our minds with freezing fear!

    I have seen you wastelings from the void!
    Humanity shall witness the merciless reflections!
    I have felt your torture from the howling void!
    Experience life ripping flesh from bone!

    The gates of heaven nought...
    The sun will bleed to death...
    Forever the roaring midnight realm...
    Flood the earth with Tiamat's blood...

    ##### BARBARIAN WRATH News #####
    ############################
    What's going on beyond the gates of the BARBARIAN WRATH dungeon you wonder ? Here you go...

    After the successful launch of IRON VOID, release 3 after the return it is now either BLOOD STORM or HYBOREAN STEEL or both, depending on how things go. In the meantime, buy some of my releases so that I'll be able to pay the printer once the bands are ready http://www.witchesbrewthrashes.de/shop/de/barbarian-wrath/181-iron-void-iron-void-cd.html

    ##### BLOODSTORM "The Stellar Exorcism" CD #####
    I received the rough mix version of BLOOD STORMs upcoming album "The Stellar Exorcism" along with all the lay-out files. Can you imagine a blend of "Abominations Of Desolation" and "Morbid Tales" with hints of "Haunting The Chapel" and even "Melissa" thrown in ? It still needs proper mastering and The Witch still has to do her lay-out magick but if all goes well this should be in your hands, hooves and tentacles before Summer 2014 CE \\,,/

    ##### HYBORIAN STEEL "Barbarian Mysticism" CD #####
    I'm listening to the new and (most likely) final master of "Barbarian Mysticism", the forthcoming 3rd album of HYBORIAN STEEL in my office and I'm having a REALLY hard time not to turn this up to earthshaking volumes. I know one thing for certain, I must not listen to this in the car on my way home or there will be mayhem of unprecedented scale on the Autobahn... I am so looking forward to releasing this and I'd love to play it to you all right now but unfortunately you'll have to stick to the rough mix of "Age Of Heroes" for the time being. Still, it IS a new song and I promise it won't be much longer

    ##### COUNTESS "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries" CD (WRATH666-052) #####
    The latest COUNTESS album "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries" has been unleashed in April 2014 CE, heralding the ultimate defeat of monotheism. All followers of Mosaic fairytales, stay away from "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries" or it will damn your soul to eternal torment in life and afterlife. All godless heathens out there proceed to

    ##### MEGIDDO #####
    Skar had to cancel the European MEGIDDO holocaust planned for July 2014 CE. Bummer. On the positive side, he can now fully concentrate on recording "The Holocaust Messiah" which is also being moved to Autumn 2014 but all songs are written and things are moving forward. He's also planning on resheduling the live dates towards the end of the year. In the mean time, keep this one on rotation

    There's also much bubbling going on behind the doors of the WITCHES BREWery

    ##### ALITOR "Eternal Depression" CD (BREW041) #####
    We're still waiting for the final audio master and layout for the "Eternal Depression" CD from Thrash Maniacs ALITOR! In the meantime you can check out "Realm Of Grief" at the link below. Be prepared for this great Thrash release coming early August 2014!

Their debut release on Witches Brew features two brand new, killer songs for all those that like their Thrash filthy and insane! The EPs are currently at the factory! Due to the curse of delays, the EP will only be added to the shop once they are actually en route to the Brewery! For now check out the B side track and wreck your neck @

    ##### TYRANT'S KALL "Dagon" LP (BREW043) #####
    In August/September we'll brew up the LP version of their 2012 self released CD with a never before released bonus track and vinyl specifix mix! Their music, inspired by Lovecraft, cannot be categorized in any traditional metallic subdivision. With obvious influences of Doom and old school Swedish Death Metal in the vein of DISMEMBER and old ENTOMBED, one can also hear some Thrash Metal and even 70's Rock is not shunned. It is precisely this mixture of styles and influences that renders TYRANT'S KALL their uniqueness along with the fantastic vocal approach by Esmee Tabasco. Hear the TYRANT'S KALL @

  • The top 13 of 2013 / Najlepsze albumy roku 2013.

    7 maj 2014, 10:59 av bazzo-182

    13. The Veils - Time Stays, We Go



    U The Veils bez zmian: wciąż grają bardzo ciepły, rozmarzony i tajemniczy gitarowo-fortepianowy pop. Niby nic wielkiego, ale klasa niepodważalna. Ambitnie i przystępnie.

    12. Samsara Blues Experiment - Waiting For The Flood



    Ciężkie gitarowe granie w najlepszy wydaniu, choć tylko Shringara utrzymuje poziom z Long Distance Trip.

    11. Dale Cooper Quartet & The Dictaphones - Quatorze Pièces de Menace



    O dark jazz łatwo nie jest, więc każdą płytę z tego gatunku ceni się bardziej; najlepszy krążek francuskiego kwartetu - w sam raz jako alternatywa dla The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble.

    10. Biffy Clyro - Opposites / Opposites: Live From Glasgow



    Polubiłem ten ich pomysł na muzykę: post-hardcore + chwytliwe refreny + podniosła intensywność. Miło, że gitary i perkusja zawsze są na pierwszym planie, a nie gdzieś w tle. Goście napawają energią - poszedłbym na koncert, choć nie wszystkie utwory przypadły mi do gustu.

    9. José James - No Beginning No End



    Może trochę za dużo soulu, ale tylko odrobinę - to wciąż elegancki, nowoczesny smooth jazz . Nie znam lepszego wokalisty operującego w tym stylu.

    8. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Specter At The Feast



    Całościowo moja ulubiona płyta zespołu, choć może brakuje natychmiastowych hitów. Szkoda, że tak dobre gitarowe granie rzadko pojawiało się w przesiąkniętym elektroniką i popem roku 2013.

    7. Queens of the Stone Age - ...Like Clockwork



    QOTSA wciąż grają najbardziej chwytliwy stoner, choć to wcale nie ich najłatwiejsza w odbiorze płyta; brakuje przebojów pokroju No One Knows czy First It Giveth, ale album - choć momentami osobliwy i wymagający większego muzycznego obycia - bardzo równy.

    6. I Am Kloot - Let It All In



    Najlepsza płyta zespołu od czasu Gods and Monsters; powrót do korzeni zdecydowanie wyszedł Anglikom na dobre; gitara akustyczna nie musi być nudna ani smętna - każdy utwór to krótka, dobrze zarysowana historia.

    5. Naam - Vow



    Psychedelic rock/stoner - i właściwie tyle w temacie. Jest tu wszystko, czego można spodziewać się po muzyce z tego gatunku. Po prostu konkretne gitarowe granie, ale jednocześnie nie straszy surowością, ani przesadną agresywnością.

    4. The Flying Eyes - Lowlands



    Mógłbym w zasadzie napisać: "jak wyżej", bo klimaty podobne do Naam, ale tu zespół bardziej ciągnie jednak w stronę czystej psychodelii - jest ciężko i psychodelicznie, ale z zachowaniem decorum; kilka fajnych refrenów i motywów gitarowych; doskonała muzyka na piątkowy wieczór przy piwie.

    3. Foals - Holy Fire



    Indie rock/avant-garde pop - zaufana marka; kolejna bardzo solidna płyta jednego z najlepszych i najciekawiej brzmiących zespołów grających w gruncie rzeczy gitarowy pop. Płyta nierówna (chyba jak każda Foals), ale jak zwykle kilka utworów zapada w pamięć szybko i na długo.

    2. Bristish Sea Power - Machineries Of Joy



    Indie rock - odkrycie roku; chwytliwe melodie, dużo przesteru, kilka nieszablonowych motywów, trochę melancholii i sporo energii z dozą ekscentryczności - czego chcieć więcej? Szkoda tylko, że nie wszystkie utwory oferują równie wysokie muzyczne doznania - byłoby wręcz wybitnie.

    1. Midlake - Antiphon



    Folk rock/progressive folk - odszedł lider zespołu, a tu ku zaskoczeniu wszystkich magnum opus Teksańczyków; nieszablonowość brzmienia, doskonała produkcja i różnorodność inspiracji - to jedna z tych płyt, do których regularnie się wraca i słucha od początku do końca chłonąc klimat całym sobą.

    The COUNTESS, the ARKHAM WITCH and THE WIZAR'D
    -- Newsletter April 2014



    ####### COUNTESS #######

    Today is the day. Finally, at last, April 9th 2014 CE has dawned upon us and the latest COUNTESS album "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries" has been unleashed. If you have waited until now, wait no longer for the ultimate defeat of monotheism is at hand and COUNTESS are screaming it's swan song. All followers of Mosaic fairytales, stay away from "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries" for it will damn your soul to eternal torment in life and afterlife. All godless heathens out there proceed to

    Heed the "Call Of The Ancient Pantheon" @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LLX6_yVlrM

    Here's "By Hammer And Blood", another track off "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries" to keep you going until your order ships. Unless you haven't ordered it yet in which case you should probably stop fucking around and go and do it. Seriously. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wyy7xdK2k8Y



    ####### ARKHAM WITCH #######

    Are you finally ready to replace your mp3s with something tangible ? I'm finally ready to sell it to you again :) "On Crom's Mountain" has been repackaged and descends upon mankind in an epic second coming on April 9th 2014 CE.
    Appease the wrath of the Old Ones by sacrificing your coin at
    http://www.witchesbrewthrashes.de/shop/de/barbarian-wrath/781-arkham-witch-on-croms-mountain-cd.html

    You don't remember ARKHAM WITCH ? Well, you should fix that soon because the "Viking Pirates Of Doom" are about to descend from Crom's Mountain once again to take all of your shit too. You have been warned ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-iOwQpnbLQ

    And the title track, just to drive my point home... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYdxcFKDlK8



    ####### THE WIZAR'D #######

    In February 2014 CE I fired this black arrow of death straight through the groins of all those who dare play wimpy Doom Metal. Delving ever deeper into the proverbial "Ancient Tome Of Arcane Knowledge" Tasmania's very own THE WIZAR'D remain on their path to reveal facets of Metal hithero hidden to the eyes, ears and minds of even the more devoted members of the circle of occult Doom Metal fans. Besides the 6 track studio album (34 minutes) this CD also features a full live show recorded on Friday, September 13th 2013 CE that will surely cause you to "Turn To Evil"... Sell your soul and hope of resurrection @

    ####### Package deals at our distro #######

    At this point, 3 releases in, I feel I should make you aware of the fact that after our very successful sale has come to an end we have reinstated the previous discount options formally known as "Pitchfork Pack" and "666 Pack". While it's not a 40 % discount anymore you can still get 3 or 6 CDs for slightly above 8 EUR each (plus shipping). Find further explanations in excruciating detail @

    And now, an outlook to future BARBARIAN WRATH releases:

    ####### IRON VOID #######

    The good news just keep on coming in... :) Yorkshire's very own Doom Mongers IRON VOID have decided to join the coven and release their monumental first album through BARBARIAN WRATH. Those familiar with the "Spell Of Ruin" EP or those who happened to catch them on tour with ARKHAM WITCH last year already know what to expect although I can assure you that Sealy, Steve and Damien have stepped up 2 notches from the already very good EP. Expect the "Iron Void" album to crush down on you before Summer 2014 CE.
    For all those out there going "IRON who...?" right now, check out "Final Resting Place" and maybe you'll start to understand what I'm on about
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frJP-LXKDas



    ####### BLOOD STORM #######

    Just this week I received the rough mix version of BLOOD STORMs upcoming album "The Stellar Exorcism" along with all the lay-out files. I'm halfway through my second listen... Can you imagine a blend of "Abominations Of Desolation" and "Morbid Tales" with hints of "Haunting The Chapel" and even "Melissa" thrown in ? It still needs proper mastering and The Witch still has to do her lay-out magick but if all goes well this should be in your hands, hooves and tentacles before Summer 2014 CE \,,/



    ####### MEGIDDO, WARHORDE and beyond #######

    Following the above blasphemies are MEGIDDO "The Holocaust Messiah" and WARHORDE "Kiss My Goat" which are both in various stages of completion. I may be convinced to do one or two additional releases if the right band comes along. If you think you have what it takes to be on Barbarian Wrath you may submit your songs to:

    Barbarian Wrath
    Postfach 100710
    93007 Regensburg
    GERMANY

    Before you trouble yourself with sending stuff that'll go straight out the window, do keep in mind what kind of music Barbarian Wrath stands for. It's always been VENOM and MERCYFUL FATE, CIRITH UNGOL and HELLHAMMER, and most definitely OMEN, WARLORD, MANOWAR, MANILLA ROAD and GRIFFIN as well as BATHORY, SLAUGHTER, VULCANO, MASSACRE and VOIVOD.

    ####### AMOK #######

    The patches have aligned perfectly for the reunion of Witches Brew and Scotland’s purveyers of fine “Clyde Bay Area Thrash”! This long awaited and highly anticipated second album, clocking in at over 50 minutes, is a monster of a Thrash release! They’ve amped up the aggression factor, tossed in a touch of technicality and skillfully built that over a solid foundation of their trademark hook laden choruses and catchy riffs. If you regularly mosh and feast on a diet of Exodus, Forbidden, Sacred Reich or Heathen then this album is a prime cut of Thrash you absolutely must indulge in! Released 29th November 2013.

  • The ARKHAM WITCH and COUNTESS Erszebeth have landed \,,/

    Today there's a party in my house. The ARKHAM WITCH came and brought COUNTESS Erszebeth along. The cackling going on here is insane. I think they are swapping recipes for virgin blood cocktails right now. It's really confusing for the rats though, on occasion they are on the wrong tits and that usually doesn't end well :D
    During all the madness and mayhem and the cackling I'm also trying to number stuff and my darling wife is already packing (pre) orders which will be shipped on Wednesday, April 2nd, one week before the official release date on Wednesday, April 9th to make sure that all those who opened their wallets in support of my label and my efforts to release the weirdest Heavy Fucking Metal imaginable get their CDs in time.
    In case you're wondering what the heck I'm on about but actually bothered to read this far, today the boxes containing the brand new COUNTESS CD "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries" and the relaunch of the ARKHAM WITCH CD "On Crom's Mountain" arrived \,,/
    You can still join the army of immortal supporters by heading over to the link at the bottom of this post and while you're over there at the WITCHES BREW store you might also take a look at the rest of the stock because it's still 40 % off the regular price at the WITCHES BREW store until March 31st 2014.
    AND, when you're done, go and tell your friends so they can score as well \,,/

    Holy crap, you should've seen the amount of orders my poor overworked wife had to drag to the post office today. The poor suckers who had to build pyramids would've shuddered at the sight of her... Nevertheless, keep them coming and keep her busy !
    And keep in mind that even though this sale technically runs until March 31st, once a title is gone that likely is it and getting 40 % off hardly is shabby or is it ? So head over to the WITCHES BREW store and secure your CDs now or weep forever.
    AND, when you're done, go and tell your friends so they can score as well \,,/

It's 40 % off on pretty much everything so now would be the prefect time to go forth and complete your WITCHES BREW and BARBARIAN WRATH collections.

    BARBARIAN WRATH and WITCHES BREW - Newsletter March 2014

    It's almost a year now that BARBARIAN WRATH announced that I would return, following the triumphant return of WITCHES BREW. Neither of us has been lazy in the meantime as you can tell:

    ---> COUNTESS "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries" CD (WRATH052)
    The day you've all been waiting for desperately has finally arrived. Here's a first taste of the new COUNTESS album "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries". Enjoy or suffer or both :)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LLX6_yVlrM

    "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries", COUNTESS' fourteenth full-length, features ten tracks of uncompromising METAL, blending first wave Black Metal and traditional Heavy Metal in a way only COUNTESS can. The result of almost three years of writing and recording, "Ancient Lies" will surely satisfy all those who long for the days when Black Metal was still METAL.

    To be released on April 9th 2014. Pre-order your copy right here:

    ---> ARKHAM WITCH "On Crom's Mountain" CD (WRATH050)
    April 9th 2014 is also the date of the relaunch of "On Crom's Mountain". Anyone still remember that weird band from Yorkshire...? ARKHAM WITCH ? You don't ? Here's a little reminder in the form of the title track of their first album, "On Crom's Mountain":
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYdxcFKDlK8

    "On Crom's Mountain" comes with completely new cover art featuring the first part of Jowita's tryptichon along with a matching new lay-out. The audio side of things remains unchanged since there was no way to further improve the recording anyways. And it's available for pre-order right here:

    ######

    ---> THE WIZAR'D "Ancient Tome Of Arcane Knowledge" CD (WRATH051)
    And in February 2014 this one went off the press:
    Delving ever deeper into the proverbial "Ancient Tome Of Arcane Knowledge" Tasmania's very own THE WIZAR'D remain on their path to reveal facets of Metal hithero hidden to the eyes, ears and minds of even the more devoted members of the circle of occult Doom Metal fans. Besides the 6 track studio album (34 minutes) this CD also features a full live show recorded on Friday, September 13th 2013 CE that will surely cause you to "Turn To Evil"... Released in February 2014 CE.

    In case you're still not familiar with THE WIZAR'D after all this time, here's the title track of the above album:

    ---> MEGIDDO, BLOOD STORM, WARHORDE and beyond
    Following the above blasphemies are MEGIDDO "The Holocaust Messiah", BLOOD STORM "The Stellar Exorcism" and WARHORDE "Kiss My Goat" which are all in various stages of completion and I expect them to be out before Summer 2014. I may be convinced to do one or two additional releases if the right band comes along. If you think you have what it takes to be on Barbarian Wrath you may submit your songs to:

    My sweet darling wife has been even more busy then myself... Since October 2013 she has tapped:

    ---> MIDNITE HELLION "Hour Of The Wolf" 7" (BREW035)
    The Hour Of The Wolf has arrived! Sink your fangs in deep and don’t let this limited single escape!

    ######

    ---> AMOK "Somewhere In The West" CD (BREW036)
    The patches have aligned perfectly for the reunion of Witches Brew and Scotland’s purveyers of fine “Clyde Bay Area Thrash”! This long awaited and highly anticipated second album, clocking in at over 50 minutes, is a monster of a Thrash release! They’ve amped up the aggression factor, tossed in a touch of technicality and skillfully built that over a solid foundation of their trademark hook laden choruses and catchy riffs. If you regularly mosh and feast on a diet of Exodus, Forbidden, Sacred Reich or Heathen then this album is a prime cut of Thrash you absolutely must indulge in! Released 29th November 2013.
