I'm going to follow the model of the other labels who post here and just maintain one thread for everything. Unspeakable Axe is a new sub-label of Dark Descent Records focused more on thrash and hybrid acts (death/thrash, black/thrash, primitive and unclassifiable shit like Hellhammer, etc.)



New and bloodthirsty label Unspeakable Axe Records has joined forces with crossover thrashers Birth A.D. to bring you the group's first full-length, "I Blame You." Birth A.D. have been terrorizing their home state of Texas since 2008, dropped a tactical nuke of an EP ("Stillbirth of a Nation") in 2009, and are now ready to leave the entire USA just a smoking crater with this anticipated debut. Full of punk attitude, thrash precision, and a whole lot of yelling, this CD is the rightful heir to great bands like D.R.I. and S.O.D., and gives exactly as much of a damn about what you think as those bands did. Birth A.D. is a well-oiled machine full of seasoned pros who have played live and in studio with many well-known bands, and with famed thrash producer Alex Perialas behind the boards, they sound as assured as you'd expect given their formidable credentials.

This is the first release of Unspeakable Axe, a sub-label of the mighty Dark Descent, whose roster of death, doom and black metal has made it internationally known in just a few short years. Unspeakable Axe will complement their parent label with a more thrash-oriented approach that hearkens back to the roots of extreme metal, and to the fluid transitions between the various sub-genres in their infant forms, before battle lines were drawn and rules were written and expected to be followed.

The band has this to say: "Joining forces with Unspeakable Axe and Dark Descent proved to be the best choice for Birth AD, as they are about the bands, the music, and doing things the old way (that is, the right way). We plan to cause even more problems with their support!"

"I Blame You" is expected to arrive in late spring/early summer 2013.

Evil Army/Birth AD live dates, 2013:

Thursday, April 4 - O'Briens Pub, Allston, NY
Friday, April 5 - The Acheron, Brooklyn, NY
Saturday, April 6 - Kung Fu Necktie, Philadelphia, PA
Sunday, April 7 - The Sidebar, Baltimore, MD

I didn't know Alex Perialas was still producing metal acts. Cool beans.

Now that you say that, it does kinda look like that artist. I don't believe this is the same guy though. This was handled by a comic book artist named Cliff Robinson.

Unspeakable Axe Records is proud to announce that we will be reissuing Besieged's self-released album, "Victims Beyond All Help." Besieged have been terrorizing music listeners in their hometown of Winnipeg for quite some time, putting out a demo ("Visions of Pain") in 2004 and then releasing their debut in 2010. Their sound is lightning-fast death-tinged thrash metal, indebted to the old gods of the scene while also bringing in new influences and ideas. No jokey lyrics, no phony retro affectations, just pure bludgeoning for fans of "Beneath the Remains," "Reign in Blood," "Darkness Descends," and other uncompromising, furious albums that changed the face of the genre. "Victims" was self-released by the band in 2010 and limited to just 300 copies on pro CD-R; now it will be officially reissued with an upgraded layout, and the "Visions of Pain" demo tracks as a bonus. This reissue will use the same completely old school artwork painted by the legendary Ed Repka.

This will be the second release by Unspeakable Axe, the new sub-label of Dark Descent Records.

"Victims Beyond All Help" is due for release in spring or summer of 2013.

Ha, I don't know how I never spotted that before. Repka, you thieving bastard... Very Happy

The band they get compared to the most is "Beneath the Remains"-era Sepultura, though I think a lot of that is because their vocalist sounds so much like Max Cavalera back when he gave a shit. Musically they cast a wider net. The speed and heaviness definitely match Sep, though. They're also starting work on a new album, which the singer tells me will be even more death metal, so I wonder if Electrocution is about the right point of reference... really curious to hear it, once they start recording.

In what is getting to be our typical fashion, here's an informal announcement in advance of the official announcement. Unspeakable Axe has signed on vicious thugs of death metal TRENCHROT. Their three-song demo is streaming at this location: http://trenchrotdeathmetal.bandcamp.com/ Go listen to the semi-Asphyxian, sortaSwedishy death metal goodness. TrenchRot is in the writing process for their full-length, which will be recorded this summer for a probable fall release.

very cool stuff, but I've got a (not sure if pertinent) question: why are they going to be out via UA and not DD?

I mean, after the announcement of the first 2 signings, I thought UA would be more focused at trash-crossover stuff, but since TRENCHROT is death metal, is there a reason to add them to UA and not DD?
