Unless you are a stranger to CVLT Nation, you are not a stranger to the bestial death metal war machine that is London, England’s QRIXKUOR! Since the release of their infamous Consecration of the Temple demo in 2014, the band has bolstered a well-deserved and loyal following… and if you’ve

Unholy fuck, what you are about to hear is one of the raddest crust releases of 2016, hands down! Ireland’s OKUS is back with a new LP entitled Scourge that will touch down to earth on May 14th via Distroy Records and Chainbreaker Records. This band knows how to write the the kind of songs

These bands deliver the most perfect record of pure reverb madness – Gaze from Dublin, Ireland and KORP from Malmö, Sweden. Both bands will be playing simultaneously in their own cities of Dublin and Malmo on Saturday night, and then will be touring Ireland together July 16th – 18th. Released

Absolutist are a Scotland-based band who play very much a thought-provoking type of dark hardcore. We’re streaming a new song entitled “Lux” from their upcoming 7″ EP. I asked the band to tell CVLT a bit about the new release before they go to Greece for 6 days of touring.

For those not familiar with Putrefaction, words like crusty metal, Motörhead, Hellshock and Mad Max are normally mentioned, which is quite apt. To be honest, I’ve been really looking forward to hearing what they were going to do next. And low and behold, here they are with a new ep

Glyn Smyth first caught my attention when I was looking at a Wolves In The Throne Room tour poster, so I looked into his work and I really liked what I found. It will probably not surprise you, since I am a fan of artworks from Fortifem or Business for

Metal and hardcore in Ireland rarely goes 12 months without releasing at least a couple of impressive records, and 2014 was no different, from new bands (Vircolac being the most recent) through to the old guard. Perhaps what is most interesting about several Irish records released this year, and the

2013 has been a rather ridiculous year for Irish records, with a slew of releases coming out over the last 12 months that all deserve some place on this list but alas, it’s restricted to the number six. Honourable mentions must go out to debuts, full-length albums that lived up

Black metal and mystique often go hand in hand. Little is known of Irish black metal entity Dúnmharú, the duo of Ross O’Connor and Cathal Hughes. Last year’s Curses Come Home record did a good job introducing Dúnmharú to us, but with a new album coming out shortly entitled Frozen

If you’ve been casting an eye on Ireland in the last two or three years, you may have noticed that it has become fertile ground for some exciting black metal bands; Sodb, Slidhr immediately spring to mind while you have upstarts like Ceaseless Blight. The mysterious Krawwl are the newest

Last year, Ireland’s Zhora crept into the metal scene in Ireland with a brief online-only EP called Feet Nailed To The Ground. It exhibited a band that, while in their infancy, had aggression and exuberance in spades and most importantly, the bit between their teeth; so much so that they

Irish scourge ZOM present us two cosmological atrocities on a wicked 7” EP that lights the altar of Blasphemy, Morbid Angel, and Slayer aflame in it’s worship. While these tracks did appear on their 2012 “Hells Pleasure” demo I unfortunately did not get a hold of that so these are
