Hailing from the city of Leipzig, Germany, the site of one of black metal’s most storied live performances, Lihhamon arose unceremoniously in 2013 and set to work in relative anonymity, crafting its bludgeoning weapon of aural terrorism over the course of the ensuing two years before making its presence known […]
After nearly three decades of activity and dozens of releases, the influence of Singapore’s Impiety is undeniable. The band began in 1988, operating under the name Sexfago, an obvious nod to the Brazilian progenitors of the style. At the time, Sexfago was a duo consisting of Goatlord Cunt-Shredder & Goatvulva […]
Prior to the release of its 2013 debut album, “Throne of Demonic Proselytism,” Demonomancy recorded and released two demos, “Bearers of Black Arts” and “The Premonition,” as well as its intervening “Rites of Barbaric Demons” MLP. Whereas the MLP was made widely available through its release by Nuclear War Now!, […]
In 2002, Black Witchery were just beginning to establish themselves in the underground. Likewise, NWN! had just completed its first two vinyl LP releases (Blasphemy’s “Live Ritual” and Morbosidad’s self-titled debut) and was still in its embryonic stages. It was in this context that NWN! released the vinyl version of […]
Spanning the past thirty years and counting, the Agathocles discography is one of the most extensive in all of grindcore and, more broadly, the entire extreme music underground. With fourteen full-length albums and several hundred EPs, split releases, and live albums, the band is rivaled by few others in terms […]
Nuclear War Now! expands its ever-growing roster and reach with its release of “Rites of Evil,” the debut full-length from Evil, a four-piece black/speed metal band from Tokyo, Japan.

Born under the political strife that led to the Balkan conflicts of the early 1990s, Bombarder’s first two albums, “Speed Kill” and “Bez Milosti,” are hereby exhumed and re-presented as relics of Evil Slavic Speed Metal past that carry equal potency today.
Nuclear War Now! is honored to present the first reissues of the “Heinous Noise,” “Spasmo Paralytic Dreams,” and “No Regret” demos from the legendary Blood (Germany) on vinyl LP format.

Back in 2013, when the imposing specter of Death Worship first surreptitiously announced its impending presence, the collective response from those who witnessed its blasphemous annunciation was one of sheer anticipation. During the ensuing three years in which the band has meticulously crafted the final touches on its debut recording, […]
2017 reissue on Nuclear War Now! “The Black Flux” was the catharsis of Carl-Michael “Czral” Eide as an artist, writer and performer and it represents a watershed in the field of avantgarde metal / rock. Hailed as “album of the year” in several publications, the album saw the band rise […]
2017 reissue on Nuclear War Now! “The Agent That Shapes The Desert” is the third album from Norwegian avantgarde rock maestros, Virus. Whereas its predecessor, “The Black Flux,” was a dense maelstrom that threatened to pull you under, “The Agent…” is dry, sharp, and refined. It combines the dissonant guitar-washes […]
First released by Season of Mist in November 2015, Nuclear War Now! has licensed an additional vinyl release of “Behold.Total.Rejection” in order to further propagate Revenge’s unmatched audial violence. Keeping with the tradition that NWN! first established with its 2008 die-hard vinyl edition of the band’s third album, “Infiltration.Downfall.Death,” this […]
2016 Reissue on Nuclear War Now! “Fallen Angel of Doom….” is a monument of black metal! This album inspired an entire genre upon its release. The owner of Wild Rags! Records, the notorious Richard C., phoned Black Winds when the album was released and told him excitedly that the album […]
There’s a certain irony to how Revenge can possess such a royal lineage yet still produce some of the rawest blackened death metal to be released in recent years; formed in 2000, the blood of Revenge is thick with remnants of great bands past, an intermingling of Canada’s great blackened […]
