Candlemass “Candlemass” (Back On Black)

2019-03-28T21:29:42+00:00March 28th, 2019|

“Candlemass” is the eighth studio album by Swedish doom metal merchants Candlemass, originally released in 2005. With all the history this band has, it is inevitable to compare everything they have ever done with their first 4 albums, and righteously, because they are cornerstones in a genre. “Candlemass” bears the weight of all that, and successfully delivers.

Pungent Stench “Been Caught Buttering” (Back on Black)

2018-05-25T23:46:00+00:00May 25th, 2018|

Back on Black Records re-issue the classic works of Austrian death metal band Pungent Stench.

“Been Caught Buttering” is Pungent Stench’s second album, originally released in 1991 on Nuclear Blast. The album art, which depicted two severed, partially decomposed heads kissing (in fact, it is one head which had been sawed in half by photographer Joel-Peter Witkin), had to be changed for the Australian release. The controversy alone caused global interest in the band. “Been Caught Buttering”, garnered the group considerable attention in the morbid death metal/grindcore underground, because of their perversities as well as their style of music

Pungent Stench “Club Mondo Bizarre” (Back on Black)

2018-05-25T23:45:59+00:00May 25th, 2018|

DELUXE VINYL EDITION!!!
Back on Black Records re-issue the classic workds of Austrian death metal band Pungent Stench.
“Club Mondo Bizarre” is the third album of the Austrian death metal band Pungent Stench originally released in 1994 on Nuclear Blast records. On “Club Mondo Bizarre”, Pungent Stench tones down its grindcore/death metal similar to how Carcass and Entombed toned down theirs on Heartwork and Wolverine Blues, respectively, putting more emphasis on clear-cut song structuring with memorable riff-driven verses and vocal-chorus hooks. The group’s songs benefit tremendously, making this its strongest album.
