OUT NOW! Midas – Demo Tapes LP // Crypt Dagger – From Below MLP

Dying Victims Productions is proud to announce that these two releases are out now:

DVP 142 Midas – Demo Tapes LP/CD

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the first two demos of MIDAS on vinyl LP format under the title Demo Tapes.

Hailing from the mean streets of Detroit, MIDAS are a four-piece band of hard rock warriors. Theirs is an ancient, time-lost sound, recalling rock ‘n’ roll’s first transitions into proto-metal during the hazy, crazy ‘70s. But, MIDAS are not simply retro-retread plagiarists looking to (hazily, lazily) replicate the past; this era and style of music BURNS within them, and it bursts forth with effervescence and excitement across their two demos to date.

Both released during 2019, MIDAS’ Solid Gold Heavy Metal and Still Hungry each feature four effervescent, exciting songs, and both trounce most bands regular recordings. Brimming with a startling, stultifying confidence, Solid Gold Heavy Metal (which occupies Side A of this DYING VICTIMS vinyl edition) patiently builds eldritch grooves guided by narrative lead work. There’s a subtle yet no-less-dazzling mysticism here recalling earliest Scorpions, Judas Priest, and even trio-era Thin Lizzy – just witness the demo’s eerily breathtaking closer, “Blackened Blade” – as well as subsequent legends Manilla Road and Cirith Ungol. The heavier stylings of the latter begin to come to the fore on Still Hungry, here occupying Side B. Now fully into late ‘70s heavy metal mode, MIDAS move beyond the moodiness of their first demo to more epic and fantastical landscapes, kicking up the octane and cruising into the night with the ever-aptly titled “Street Knights.” Together, both demos could verily hold together as an exceptionally tight ‘n’ thematic album-length work.

DYING VICTIMS couldn’t be more excited to unleash the majesty ‘n’ mysticism of America’s MIDAS to a worldwide audience. Take a trip back in time – and into the future – with Demo Tapes!

Regular edition on black vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card and download code.
Special edition on colored vinyl, with insert, poster, sticker, post card, download code and patch.

DVP 144 Crypt Dagger – From Below MLP

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present CRYPT DAGGER’s From Below mini-album on 12” vinyl format.

Like a brightly burning star, CRYPT DAGGER burst into the night at the dawn of 2019. A two-song rehearsal introduced their boisterous, belligerent ways before the four-song Tales of Torment EP followed. Here, the full rapacious nature of CRYPT DAGGER revealed itself with rudeness and crudeness: filth-banging, black-as-pitch SPEED METAL with a heavy debt to punk, as well as such surprising influences as Devo, The Mummies, and early B-52s. And it was only the start!

Now, under the guiding gaze of DYING VICTIMS, CRYPT DAGGER shall spring from the gutter and into heavy metal vomit parties worldwide with From Below! Comprising eight songs in a swift ‘n’ satisfying 24 minutes, this special MLP comprises the four tracks of Tales of Torment with three more brand-new ones as well as an all-too-fitting cult cover of Dead Moon. Names vividly invoked include Carnivore, Razor, Hallows Eve, Nasty Savage, Living Death, and of course earliest Bathory and Venom, but all done with Road Warrior sense of style: maximum overdrive, total penetration! And again, this is only the start…

Go way, way down with CRYPT DAGGER’s From Below – only for the creepiest of creeps!

DVP 149 Zatyr – Ornament of Proposition MLP

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present ZATYR’s striking debut EP, Ornament of Proposition, on 12” vinyl and digital formats.

Hailing from Sweden and forming in 2019, ZATYR quickly set to work on their debut EP – plus, speaking of “set,” their vocalist Set used to be in the beloved Devil Lee Rot. Titled Ornament of Proposition, the band’s first public recording was released digitally in September of that year, and proudly displayed an otherwise-new band brimming with the fire of the ancients and confidence to spare. Indeed, ZATYR here sounded authentically old, casting their gaze across the darkest and classiest currents of classic heavy metal singed with a touch of first-wave black metal. But, paradoxically, the quartet just as ably burned with the enthusiasm of feral youngbloods, imbuing the EP’s three tracks with boundless passion.

Seeing fit to foster the rich lifeblood of the heavy metal underground, DYING VICTIMS grants ZATYR’s debut EP on a new lease on life, rendering it onto black gold and including an exclusive bonus track, now encompassing a total of 18 stout minutes. Truly, this re-release shall rightfully expose ZATYR to the wider metal landscape, boldly emblazoning “The Devil’s Rock ‘n’ Roll” across the hearts and minds of those who hail ancient heavy metal and black metal alike. Names to be referenced include early Running Wild, Mercyful Fate, Omen, Brocas Helm, Death SS and even Bathory’s transition from Blood Fire Death to Hammerheart, but all done with an addicting zeal that’s entirely ZATYR’s alone. Open thy ears and allow Ornament of Proposition to recast its spells!

DVP 150 Hexenbrett – Zweite Beschwörung: Ein Kind zu töten LP/CD/MC

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present HEXENBRETT’s highly anticipated debut album, Zweite Beschwörung: Ein Kind zu töten, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

It was at the dawn of 2019 when a strange little demo inconspicuously announced itself from the other side and introduced the sound of the bloody iris. Titled Erste Beschwörung, it was the first public recording of one HEXENBRETT, the work of a mysterious duo revealing themselves as Josto Feratu and Scarlettina Bolétte. This was a literal bolt from the blue, sounds that were as refreshingly new as they were authentically old. “Cemetery sounds” is what the band called them, but that only told half the story. Wild and wily, HEXENBRETT unloaded a dizzying payload of sounds both traditional and unorthodox, dumping into its hot-rockin’ cauldron spices from first-wave black metal, Iron Curtain-era speed metal, outsider doom, and even old-school deathrock. It was a kaleidoscopic spin, and caught the attention of Caligari Records (who did a wider cassette release) and then DYING VICTIMS with their 12” vinyl version toward the end of the year. Lots of other, strange-starved ears picked up on it, too.

The stage thus set, HEXENBRETT proceeds to defy expectations and obliterate the slate with its debut album, Zweite Beschwörung: Ein Kind zu töten. A record of stark contrasts, Zweite Beschwörung immediately sounds definitively like HEXENBRETT: roaming ancient cemeteries with a torch in hand, conjuring the madness and mysticism of early black metal, when unorthodoxy was celebrated and no blueprints yet existed – only paths to be blazed! But, that latter element is precisely where Zweite Beschwörung takes a different turn, delving into waters both more refined and more rarefied, more straightforward and more obtuse – more METAL, epic and outlandish and “true,” but decidedly in an un-metal manner – beguiling the senses either way, and addictively so. It’s a turn that’s directly inspired by such sources as varied as Varathron, Jean Rollin, Danzig, Goblin, and Van Halen, and yet emerging completely unique and unlike little else around. A diverse journey through mouldy crypts and deranged minds, Zweite Beschwörung: Ein Kind zu töten features eight original tracks and an astonishing cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “The Spider Song”.

Quite commandingly, HEXENBRETT reveal an uncanny knack for songcraft, building defined and endearing hooks that unfold unexpectedly yet thrillingly, the intensity constantly rising and falling with preternatural ease but always in service of the song. Elsewhere, the band coats its creations with subtle layers of synth, further fanning that otherworldly atmosphere that laid in wait across the demo while ragged aggression usually took over. Which is all to say nothing of the absolutely spellbinding chimes often employed, evoking a banquet of horror with an almost-filmic quality in line with the band’s love for European cult cinema. And, fittingly, the production across Zweite Beschwörung is richly analog, scrappy but shimmering, evincing a totality of design and just-professional-enough presentation without sacrificing the entity’s original ethics. Like most first albums should be, the tale of HEXENBRETT truly begins here.

If there was ever any question about HEXENBRETT’s singular nature, just beginning to bloom, simply gaze upon the cover art to Zweite Beschwörung: Ein Kind zu töten. All other paths blazed, this is the only one left, and it’s HEXENBRETT’s alone… The dead will dance, expect the unexpected!

DVP 151 Tøronto – Under Siege MLP

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present TØRONTO’s striking debut mini-album, Under Siege, on 12” vinyl and digital formats.

Hailing from Sweden, TØRONTO formed in 2017, partly out of the ashes of the sorely missed Morbus Chron – vocalist/guitarist Edvin Aftonfalk and bassist Dag Landin, here under the stage names Eddie Flawless and 79-83, respectively – and also powerhouse drummer Leo Ekström Sollenmo, from the well-respected Lethal Steel and Temisto, under the name Lt. Oxtreme as well as one Seb Cyborg on guitars. With this lineup in place, the quartet released their debut demo in 2018 and then the Nocturnal High tape on DYING VICTIMS later that year. That latter title alone suggested that something strange ‘n’ salacious was indeed afoot…

And it is! Wanna get nocturnal higher? Then become Under Siege! Encompassing the strides they made across their two demos, TØRONTO’s first longer-playing record is a rush of weird ‘n’ wild speed metal heavily informed by hardcore punk. Put simply, one could imagine the sound of Under Siege as greased-up NWOBHM colliding headlong into early Razor and Warfare, but overseen by Inepsy, mid ‘80s Discharge, and even Howard Benson-era Motörhead. Shit shreds, fast and free, each raucous-yet-rockin’ section charging into the night but equally exuding an unselfconsciously subtle minimalism that somehow gets these eight bangers over and done with in an average of barely two minutes each. Put another way, one could also imagine the zombified spirit of Morbus Chron holding court here, in the sense that that band both embodied and defied death metal; TØRONTO similarly does such with speed metal, but again renders it into an alternately ideal/oblique form that’s entirely theirs – and this is just the start.

While maybe not as off-the-wall weird as GISM’s NWOBHM/noise mélange M.A.N., TØRONTO are treading comparably rarified ground with Under Siege, and their trajectory into the strange is assured. Get with their program or get out of the way!
