A first track (‘Sidereal Lifespan’) can already be heard here. The complete tracklist reads as follows: ‘Sidereal Lifespan’, ‘Antropomorphia’, ‘Emerging From The Ethereal Threshold’, ‘Repulsive Recollections’, ‘Cave Dwellers’, ‘On Somber Soil’, ‘Adorned With The Black Vetebra’ and ‘Abyssal Church… The Portal Revealed’. The band issued the following statement: “We are very thrilled to present our second full-length, “Unveiling The Threshold”, which holds the most brutal and in-your-face material composed by SKELETHAL to this day. On this second album, we were able to develop our Death Metal in a more efficient way, incorporating a second soloist, faster relentless drums, and allowing the songs to reach the ferocious grounds of early Grindcore while still in the realm of Swedish Death Metal. Overall, the songwriting process has been more personal and included a greater number of influences. Actual OSDM thrives worldwide with a very unique sound, behind which we can often find Greg Wilkinson from Earhammer Studios (UNDERGANG, NECROT, MORTUOUS). This is the reason why we wanted SKELETHAL to collaborate with him for the mixing and mastering of the album. This, in addition to a new recording process and a still-fresh line-up, enabled us to achieve the heaviest sound we ever had – deep vocals, chainsaw-buzzing guitars, a crushing bass, and an explosive snare drum. The production might be cleaner than our previous releases, but still has its important share of filth and aggressiveness that defines death metal to its core. Finally, we asked the talented Eliran Kantor to bring “Unveiling The Threshold” to life throughout hisvery singular and remarkable paintng. The final result fits perfectly the identity of the band and the album, where monoliths rise from the sea and portals open up to a tormented sky.” For more band information please visit SKELETHAL at

Relapse Records have signed Detroit, Michigan based Death / Doom Metallers TEMPLE OF VOID. The band is currently working on their fourth full length, which will be released in 2021. Regarding the signing, TEMPLE OF VOID commented: “The pandemic may have stopped us playing shows, but it can’t stop us writing a new record. We’ve been hard at work ever since lock-down started, crafting new songs and exploring new ways to expand and hone our signature sound. Never a band to write the same album twice, our debut for Relapse will both be familiar and new all at the same time. Echoes of the past will meet with glimpses into the future. Each record we write stands on the shoulders of the prior albums, and this is no different. We’re beyond fucking excited to get into the studio next year and track this beast.” More TEMPLE OF VOID at or
