Dying Victims Productions is proud to announce the following new Pre-orders:
DVP 169 TOXIKULL – Cursed and Punished LP
DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present TOXIKULL’s stellar second album, Cursed and Punished, on vinyl LP format. Licenced from Metal on Metal Records.
Hailing from Portugal, TOXIKULL burst onto the scene fully formed in 2016 with their debut album, Black Sheep. Indeed black sheep amongst the modern metal landscape, the quartet unleashed a fury of classy-yet-OTT speed metal pumped full of thrash overdrive – a sound that, while classically rooted, didn’t conveniently slot itself into one category. Leading the charge were the authoritative vocals of ex-Midnight Priest frontman Lex Thunder, here also playing guitar. But Thunder’s banshee cries weren’t the only arsenal: his bandmates shredded with the best of ‘em, putting considerable chops to good use with cruising-yet-crunchy ease.
A couple EPs followed in 2018, but TOXIKULL really hit a fever pitch with their second album, 2019’s Cursed and Punished. Everything killer about their debut album was magnified tenfold, everyone going for glory and for the throat, delivering unbridled METAL MAYHEM that was simply impossible not to get swept up in! Each element here positively bristled with electricity and urgency – guitars razor-sharp but dynamic, the leads utterly blistering but with also with memorability, the rhythm section pumping like a locomotive on the way to Hell, and of course, Thunder’s vocals reaching new heights of grandeur and…well, height – and all of them were coated in a gleaming production job, courtesy of Miguel Tereso from Demigod Recordings, that sacrificed not ounce of power…in fact, quite the opposite! Through it all, the songwriting was nothing short of stunning; each of these 10 songs could be an anthem itself, and TOXIKULL banged ‘em out in a cool ‘n’ compact 34 minutes, making the listener beg for more.
Looking for a modern answer to old Helstar, Liege Lord, and Jag Panzer but with speed and power to spare? Look no further than TOXIKULL’s Cursed and Punished, at last unleashed on the most perfect format for classic metal: VINYL!
Out 11th December
DVP 170 EVOKE – Seeds of Death MC
DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present Evoke’s raging debut album, Seeds of Death, on music cassette format.
After a demo and rehearsal tape in 2016 the band barricaded into their bunker, wrote songs and let them ripe over 4 long years until 2020 has finally seen their first album Seeds of Death being released. The classic three piece has produced 7 tunes with a playing time of just over half an hour – which fits perfectly for this black thrash assault on your ears. Who could take it any longer?! And with (lLive) members being shared with Black Viper, Enter Obscurity and Deathhammer, you get an idea that Evoke are at the forefront of evil metal from Norway.
Out 13h November.

DVP 153 COLTRE – Under the Influence LP 2nd Press
DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to announce the 2nd run of COLTRE’s striking debut, Under the Influence, on 12” vinyl format. New color and patch for the special edition, black edition remains the same.
COLTRE was forged in London, England by guitarists Daniel Sweed and Marco Stamigna in May 2019. They met at a Midnight concert and decided to form a band inspired by the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. They started rehearsing, and by the beginning of 2020 had recorded the four-song EP Under the Influence, to be released in time for their first gig, supporting Witchtower at Boston Music Rooms.
The band self-released Under the Influence on CD and digital formats, but now DYING VICTIMS steps forward to champion COLTRE’s cause and release it as a five-song work, featuring an exclusive new track. Rough and rustic but brimming with an authentically ancient fire, Under the Influence is moody metallic majesty: dark ‘n’ mysterious riffs, portentously galloping rhythms, epic-yet-direct compositions, and the sage-like pipes of Stagmina atop it all. One could be mistaken for thinking COLTRE were some unearthed relic from the original NWOBHM movement, so hot-rockin’ is their swords-aloft surge, evoking high fantasy and urban grit in equal measure, and crucially retaining that pivotal rock ‘n’ roll thrust Thin Lizzy largely gifted to that movement.
But COLTRE are their own men, and as reverential as they are of these enduring paradigms, Under the Influence is undoubtedly its own creation, its own wild world. You are hereby compelled to go under THEIR influence!
Out 11th december.
