finished recordings for new album

While some bands tend to become more and more generic with every release and one can almost set the clock on the arrival of a new record, others are a lot more unpredictable and challenging. “Mayhem Maniac Machine” (released in Apostasy Records’ year of birth 2012) marked Deadborn’s second full-length and is a really unique and strong technical death metal experience to this day. Now, the follow-up is coming near! The band already completed the recordings at Kohlekeller Studio with producer Kristian “Kohle” Kohlmannslehner (Aborted, Benighted). Stay tuned for more information!



return to Apostasy Records

Obscenity have a long and rich history. Since 1989, the Northern Germans stand for classic death metal which impact will be felt. 2012, guitarist Hendrik Bruns revitalized the band after some calm years and released the hard-hitting album “Atrophied In Anguish”. Since then, the quintet cannot be stopped anymore! They released the pile-driver “Retaliation” and played numerous shows as well as festivals such as the Party.San Metal Open Air 2018. Now, Obscenity return to Apostasy Records with the recording-debut of their new vocalist Manuel Siewert (ex-December Flower) and their new bass-player David Speckmann (Burial Vault). We welcome back the band and are looking forward to unveiling further details very soon!



Nach dem Krieg

On August 31st, Insignium go to battle again with their new album “Infamie Und Urgewalt – Wenn Altes Sich Erhebt”. They know very well that after the war means also before the war. Without mercy, life is testing you the hard way. The quartet faces this fact full of rage and anger: Listen to “Nach Dem Krieg”, the harbinger of the new piece of work by the German quartet!



signs with Apostasy Records

Already in 1996, Insignium arose from the deepest abysms to let loose their raging and hate-driven black metal on the castigated manhood. After releasing their albums “Insignia Risen” (1999) and “In Die Abgründe” as well as playing shows with Shining, Helrunar, Dark Fortress, Equilibrium (a.o.), it became more quiet during the last years. The quartet took its time to write and record their new album “Infamie Und Urgewalt – Wenn Altes Sich Erhebt”. Apostasy Records is proud to support the band and their material from now on. A sinister underground-jewel will escape from the darkness!

Video for 'Perdition Portal'

Today, Fragments of Unbecoming finally reveal some new “Crimson Melodic Death Metal Art” through their new album „Perdition Portal – Chapter VI“. Therefore, the official video for the title track, which picks up the dark atmosphere of the cover-artwork, is available now. The South German quintet took six years to open their portal but the long wait was definitely worth it!




On May 18th, Fragments of Unbecoming are opening the gates to “Perdition Portal”. The 6th chapter of their “Crimson Melodic Death Metal Art“ delivers all of the band’s stengths: varied extreme vocals, haunting guitar melodies and pounding drums. The opening track “Dismal” gives a strong first impression of their qualities in 2018.



Details for 'Perdition Portal'

A new work that opens the gates wide to allow a look into the deepest abysses past all the shadows. Fragments of Unbecoming took six years to write and record what will be the next chapter within their career: “Perdition Portal – Chapter VI”. And it once again delivers the band’s “Crimson Melodic Death Metal Art” which is enriched by some new nuances.

The album which was mixed and mastered by Kristian Kohlmannslehner (Aborted, Benighted o.a.) features a monolithic artwork which will attract the listeners attention right away.

On May 18th, 2018 “Perdition Portal – Chapter VI” will be released through Apostasy Records.



Video for 'Dead Men Working'

If meritocracy and impending poverty force us to more and more work and conformity, the line between living and functioning will become thinner. It’s up to us: Self-determined human being or soulless slave.

In their new video Fleshworks present the third song off their forthcoming album „Engine Of Perdition“: „Dead Men Working“. The record will be released on March 23rd, 2018 via Apostasy Records. Now, it’s time to watch the band at work!
