Hellthrasher Productions will release the new PUTRIFIED album "Neurotic Necrotic" in February. It was recorded at Mind The Gap Studios in November – December 2010, with additional recordings in January – February 2011. Here’s the complete tracklist: ‘Neurotic Necrotic’, ‘They Speak’, ‘Behold The Butchered’, ‘Havoc’, ‘A Chamber Beneath’, ‘The Flesh Of God’, ‘Temple Of Vomit’, ‘Await The Slaughter’, ‘The Arrival’, ‘Monolith’, ‘The Land Of The Pharaohs’, ‘These Forsaken Lands’ and ‘The Return Of Ashes’. PUTRIFIED’s mastermind A. Death commented on "Neurotic Necrotic" like this: "The album is something as pretentious as a concept album in the sense that the lyrics tells a story rather than just the regular gore stuff that the lyrics dealt with on the first album "Spawn Of The Dead". No worries though, it ain’t a rockopera, the music is PUTRIFIED’s form of Necrotic Metal Of Death & Decay as always. Anyway, the story tells of a man who starts to hear voices he cannot see. They tell him things and he can’t make them stop and starts to dig up graves from where the voices come. In an attempt to make the voices stop he injects the dead with various fluids that make them come alive. Hence the title "Neurotic Necrotic", then the dead starts to walk and try to make their way home to the land of the pharoes etc. The story is very loosely based on the HP Lovecraft stories "Herbert West – Reanimator" and "Under The Pyramids". Even if the story is something that has been worked on it really is the music and songs that are the most important thing. I think these songs are much stronger as an album than "Spawn Of The Dead", the songs form a strong entity.  PUTRIFIED’s sound has expanded and new things are incorporated, this material is more focused on groove and catchy riffs than the first one.” More info at www.myspace.com/putrifiedswe

Greek Black Metallers ENSHADOWED have been signed by Pulverised Records. The band’s third full-length album "Magic Chaos Psychedelia" will be released sometime in 2012. Tracklisting: ‘Stary Throne Of It’, ‘Is Venit Ex Abyssus’, ‘Black Holes, Death Planets’, ‘The Scenario’, ‘Surrealistic Shade Of Color Black’, ‘Dethroned’, ‘Inner Psy-Trip’, ‘The Dual Hypostasis Of Nihil’ and ‘Magic Chaos Psychedelia’. Commented ENSHADOWED guitar-player N.e.c.r.o: "This is the right step for us! “Magic Chaos Psychedelia” is the most important step of the band until today. It’s an honour that ENSHADOWED is the new member of Pulverised Records. I knew that they work professionally and I was totally satisfied with my other band’s cooperation BURIAL HORDES with them. This album is a very personal situation for us. We re-made the songs again and again without any time pressure and therefore, the result was totally creative and powerful. Fotis Benardo of SEPTIC FLESH was behind the sound engineering. We spent many hours to manage the best sound quality for the recording and the mix. Now Pulverised Records is ready to spread our sick spiritual creations. Give yourself the chance to taste the blood of chaos and a magical psy-trip…" www.facebook.com/EnshadowedOfficial
