GIVE 'EM HELL - time to die!
The next song that will be on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release in December is one from the THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE-album from 2000!

Here is what S.A.Destroyer of Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL has to say:
"This is one of those tracks that set off the entire album creatively. And it is Ben Hellion's first recorded track. Though on Disc 2 of the Anniversary album, there is a song titled 'Heavy Mental (The Devil Made Me Do It)' That is actually his first song, recorded some months prior, at a demo testing for the Tools' album.
Thou, Give'em Hell and Down by Law is the 2 tracks that kicked us all into the whole Tools affair. This song we actually played several times live under the name 'High on Fire'. Testing the song out on the crowds was really helpful to give it its very good live appeal. And it is a live favourite till this day for the Thrashiacs. We noticed that the riffs flowed very well for a live song, and the anthemic feel was built through testing it on mostly the oslo thrashers in 98 and 99. And it marks a bit of a change in the whole feel internally In the band, as we set out on some really Mad Max'y vibes. And it might be through certain intakes and a wild lifestyle, but we at least managed to get the sound of that feel down on tape. It was a hard long session that took a lot out of the band and label and studio too. I won't mention names, but a hired extra producer ended in tears while we did the vocals on it And, actually, last album recorded in legendary Gordon Studio before it shut down. Long Live Magnetic Tape Studios!!"

Bastard born to conquer and to scorn
WARHORSE!

As voted by the Speed Metal Legion, one of the songs that cannot me missing on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release by Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL is the legendary Warhorse, taken from the No Retreat...-album!
Some history lesson by S.A.Destroyer:
"One of the 3 first tracks we made for the album, and first track we made with T.Terror. And actually, made in just an hour at Terror's first rehearsal. Same day we made Thrash the Redeemer and Killernecro. So out of all creative days for N.B. this must be one of the most productive and successful. As you can hear from those three songs, the energy ang instant feel we got from each other really clicked well. I have no idea how it all came about, especially the solos on Warhorse. I.Maztor really stepped into a next level thing from this point out. And it really set the fingerprint for how we would sound up until this very day. The over-the-top solos, executed to perfection, accompanied by the always driving speed metal drums from T.Terror. Very proud of this song. The feel it generates, and the kick it gave to those who thought metal had lost its edge. It truly set the tone for the whole album, with that day alone. And no, its not about a fucking horse, read some war-plane history"

Stay tuned for more songs being revealed in the following weeks, leading up to the digital release on the 26th of December!

WOLVES OF PERDITION!
The Finns came up with their impressive debut FEROCIOUS BLASPHEMIC WARFARE and we are expecting nothing less than that title implies - live on stage!

NO RETREAT, NO SURRENDER
Turn and face it
Stand and fight!

Here's what Nocturnal Breed OFFICIALs S.A.Destroyer had to say about this great track, which will be on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release in December:
"It came about as one of the last songs made on the album. And it was all just pure luck and fucking around in the studio. We had the title, as the cover painting already was in the making. But it was not clear what would be the title track until these riffs came falling out of the speakers. I think Ed and I more or less developed the main riff, with the stops and solo vocals etc, just by kinda testing it out with a mic for the vocal in the recording room. And us both on each our guitar. And it must be said, that our producer Thomas Soerlie, was quick on the tape deck, and he knew when to start recording, and when we had a thing going. As we did a lot of that on the prior album AGGRESSOR too. So, he captured that raw energy you get when you get that magic going between people who know each other and the way they play very well.
The result is pretty obvious if you ask me; that song has really transpired all borders with its hymnic metalness. And I'm sure, if we hadn't just started recording it then and there, it would never have happened. And proudly, one of the most voted songs by the S.M.L. fan horde. So for both us and the Thrashiacs, this is one of those tracks that really helped us plant the flag of the way we do shit here in the bunker."

As some of you might already have noticed, our pressing plant has thrown out huge delays for most of our latest releases.
Atm, we are in contact with them to fix things asap, but there will be further delays we're afraid.

Additionally, they read one of our orders wrong and they will need to resend the Halphas LP repress, which was planned as Gatefold, but came in normal. We would like everyone who already got their copy (as we tried to send out stuff as fast as possible) and would like to get the GF as it was planned, please write us an email to info@folter666.de with your original order number and we will send you the correct sleeve - for free of course.

As far as we know, the personell responsible for all this mess at the plant was replaced, but it will take a little time until schedules are back to normal. But nonetheless, we want to hereby apologize to all people waiting for their orders and the bands suffering the shipment delays.

Watch out, you're dead - Welcome life in hell! SCREAMING FOR A LEATHER BITCH!

As one of the most iconic songs by Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL one might say, it will be featured on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release!

Here's some backstory from S.A.Destroyer about this track:
"Apart from 'Rape the Angels', this is our most 'successful' song ever. It has stumbled through 25 years of hellbent live shows, and several versions recorded in 97 and 98.
Its grove seams to be a fixture hard to shed. And it has always been strange to me, as it is such a simple song both in lyrics and construction. So, I guess it's the energy and feel that attracts... It was made during a couple hours rehearsal and recorded the day after, as we went off on tour the same month. And as you can hear, we just went for it, tapping into that thing you sometimes achieve with close friends as you play. No one made this kinda music back then, as we completely went off track, and took a nosedive into our Hard Rock roots. It has always been our thing, to mix our influences into one dirty but heartfelt sound. And this is one of those children of the Breed-Birth-Machine."

With claws of metal he'll make you die
TRIUMPH OF THE BLASPHEMER!

Another song featured on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release by Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL! Here's what S.A.Destroyer had to say:
"This one was made on the spur as we were ending the AGGRESSOR session. I had a couple riffs left in the brain, and we had Astenu in the studio. So why not make a solo based track. And we did. We put hardly any thought into it. But in hindsight it is a great track, though never performed live for some strange reason ...
It turned out so cool, we thought it rather feature the planned EP, that would follow the 1997 European tour. And the reaction can still be heard in our bunker. That EP has been a fan favourite through all the years. Really helped by the cover and the awesome feel of that release as a whole. A strange track it is, but a good one to have on this compilation.
It was also released as an alternative version on the WARTHOG 7", but we have decided to present the original EP version here."

More to come, the release is set to 26th of December to make sure your holidays don't get too calm.

In SEELENFRESSER (soul eater) the "Schrat" is the main control part of a three-headed creature bringing the apocalypse over humanity in a conceptual inverted bible invocation over three sections. Dead people make the heads grow and activate the power of runes they use to bring more death. This misanthropic creature symbolizes the unholy trinity working against humanity.

Since we cannot provide you with the Apognosis-song, here we can present another track from the upcoming Temple of Evil-album APOLYTROSIS!

Composing this concept album has been an internal struggle through which the band experimented and exposed themselves to new lyrical and musical paths previously untrodden.
Each song on this album was approached and composed by portraying each state of being. The album serves not as a continuance of The 7th AWAKENING, but rather the next chapter in the evolution of Temple of Evil!

Raising our fist, to the final destruction
Bestial temptations, ALCOHOLIC RITES!!

For this track from the upcoming FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release by Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL, S.A.Destroyer got some backstory for you:
"Kinda says it all this one... We drank A LOT in those days, and a good part of life was exactly that; An Alcoholic Rite. And Ed captured it perfectly as we made the BLACK CULT demo, and he came with this song, packed full of uber-thrashy riffs. So, we did the only thing reasonable... We drank like Hell and recorded it. Both times we've recorded it, we went piss drunk in the end. Resulting in the clanking of bottles you can hear on the recording, and the party mood reaching epic proportions, before we got thrown out of the studio. Something that happened several times during the AGGRESSOR session. But well worth it, as it translated the great feel onto this classic track."

Look forward for more history on the tracks from the upcoming release in the following weeks!

As you may have noticed, we got a little more action on our Youtube-Channel than usual, as we're uploading a lot of videos that were premiered on Metal Vault. The reason for that are the fraudulent copyright-claims against our partner Metal Vault by some random idiot under the name of "Cristóbal Lopez", whose only goal was to take down this channel for featuring a video of a certian band or certain label (both not related to us, of course).
To make it clear: we DO NOT have any stakes in thoses games, but will take measures to protect our releases. So far, we are unable to reupload the Temple of Evil-title song from the upcoming album, as it was claimed by said idiot in order to take down the MV-channel. For now, we have to see that #Youtube will loosely let down any of of their channels for malicious attacks, as MV has vanished earlier yesterday.

If you have any information regarding the identity of this "Cristóbal Lopez" (or whatever his real name is), please contact us.

Titan beast, superior being: MAGGOT MASTER!

S.A. Destroyer about the Maggot Master-track, featured on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release by Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL:
"I remember really trying to make that slow part sound like worms... Pretty wacky, but that was my goal for this song. Written in only a few hours, a night between takes, during the Aggressor session. It also oozes of the huge 'Euro-Thrash' influences on us and the whole Oslo scene in those days. I wanted speed metal over the top, cut off by the sleaziest, most slippery chorus I could come up with. So here it is featured on the compilation, as it's also such a kicker with the fans too. Always mustering some of the wildest headbanging sessions from the thrashiacs live, as it has been a staple on more or less every gig we have played."

Something out of the ordinary here:
We got news that the Metal Vault-Youtube channel, the Symphonic Black Metal Promotion-channel and the channel of Panos Frantzios are maliciously attacked by false copyright claims by a "Cristóbal Lopez", taking down music from bands like Besatt and Eminenz Official (among various others).

As we know the person behind Metal Vault for some time now and can just say he is nothing but very reliable, the appearance of more claims on the other channels just makes the claims even more suspicious - to say the least.

If YOU have any possibility to reach out to YouTube and help these channels, please do so! So far, it seems that there is some kind of personal vendetta going, while accepting the destruction of the work of years at those channels at the same time.

GIVE 'EM HELL - time to die!
The next song that will be on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release in December is one from the THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE-album from 2000!

Here is what S.A.Destroyer of Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL has to say:
"This is one of those tracks that set off the entire album creatively. And it is Ben Hellion's first recorded track. Though on Disc 2 of the Anniversary album, there is a song titled 'Heavy Mental (The Devil Made Me Do It)' That is actually his first song, recorded some months prior, at a demo testing for the Tools' album.
Thou, Give'em Hell and Down by Law is the 2 tracks that kicked us all into the whole Tools affair. This song we actually played several times live under the name 'High on Fire'. Testing the song out on the crowds was really helpful to give it its very good live appeal. And it is a live favourite till this day for the Thrashiacs.

It was a hard long session that took a lot out of the band and label and studio too. I won't mention names, but a hired extra producer ended in tears while we did the vocals on it And, actually, last album recorded in legendary Gordon Studio before it shut down. Long Live Magnetic Tape Studios!!"

As voted by the Speed Metal Legion, one of the songs that cannot me missing on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release by Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL is the legendary Warhorse, taken from the No Retreat...-album!
Some history lesson by S.A.Destroyer:
"One of the 3 first tracks we made for the album, and first track we made with T.Terror. And actually, made in just an hour at Terror's first rehearsal. Same day we made Thrash the Redeemer and Killernecro. So out of all creative days for N.B. this must be one of the most productive and successful. As you can hear from those three songs, the energy ang instant feel we got from each other really clicked well. I have no idea how it all came about, especially the solos on Warhorse. I.Maztor really stepped into a next level thing from this point out. And it really set the fingerprint for how we would sound up until this very day. The over-the-top solos, executed to perfection, accompanied by the always driving speed metal drums from T.Terror. Very proud of this song. The feel it generates, and the kick it gave to those who thought metal had lost its edge. It truly set the tone for the whole album, with that day alone. And no, its not about a fucking horse, read some war-plane history"

Stay tuned for more songs being revealed in the following weeks, leading up to the digital release on the 26th of December!

We told you that we're planing a concert on the date of the canceled Culf of Fire/Tormentor-tour, so here are the first two (out of six) band announcements for the 12th of February at ORWOhaus:

Halphas!
With their two full length releases DAWN OF A CRIMSON EMPIRE and THE INFERNAL PATH INTO OBLIVION they put out some very well received material out there and we know that their live rituals are great as well - to say the least.

WOLVES OF PERDITION!
The Finns came up with their impressive debut FEROCIOUS BLASPHEMIC WARFARE and we are expecting nothing less than that title implies - live on stage!

NO RETREAT, NO SURRENDER
Turn and face it
Stand and fight!

Here's what Nocturnal Breed OFFICIALs S.A.Destroyer had to say about this great track, which will be on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release in December:
"It came about as one of the last songs made on the album. And it was all just pure luck and fucking around in the studio. We had the title, as the cover painting already was in the making. But it was not clear what would be the title track until these riffs came falling out of the speakers. I think Ed and I more or less developed the main riff, with the stops and solo vocals etc, just by kinda testing it out with a mic for the vocal in the recording room. And us both on each our guitar. And it must be said, that our producer Thomas Soerlie, was quick on the tape deck, and he knew when to start recording, and when we had a thing going. As we did a lot of that on the prior album AGGRESSOR too. So, he captured that raw energy you get when you get that magic going between people who know each other and the way they play very well.
The result is pretty obvious if you ask me; that song has really transpired all borders with its hymnic metalness. And I'm sure, if we hadn't just started recording it then and there, it would never have happened. And proudly, one of the most voted songs by the S.M.L. fan horde. So for both us and the Thrashiacs, this is one of those tracks that really helped us plant the flag of the way we do shit here in the bunker."

As some of you might already have noticed, our pressing plant has thrown out huge delays for most of our latest releases.
Atm, we are in contact with them to fix things asap, but there will be further delays we're afraid.

Additionally, they read one of our orders wrong and they will need to resend the Halphas LP repress, which was planned as Gatefold, but came in normal. We would like everyone who already got their copy (as we tried to send out stuff as fast as possible) and would like to get the GF as it was planned, please write us an email to info@folter666.de with your original order number and we will send you the correct sleeve - for free of course.

As far as we know, the personell responsible for all this mess at the plant was replaced, but it will take a little time until schedules are back to normal. But nonetheless, we want to hereby apologize to all people waiting for their orders and the bands suffering the shipment delays.

Date: 25.11.2021

"Blatant blast beat attacks alternate with quite melodic parts, typical sawing Black Metal riffs lead to almost doomy moments. And above all the totally weird singing [...], which provides the occasional melodiousness of the music with a sick atmosphere."
Great 8.5/10 from Zephyrs Odem for APOLYTROSIS by Temple of Evil. Reminder: this album will be released TOMORROW and you can join the premiere at Black Metal Promotion's Youtube channel!

Watch out, you're dead - Welcome life in hell! SCREAMING FOR A LEATHER BITCH!

As one of the most iconic songs by Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL one might say, it will be featured on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release!

Here's some backstory from S.A.Destroyer about this track:
"Apart from 'Rape the Angels', this is our most 'successful' song ever. It has stumbled through 25 years of hellbent live shows, and several versions recorded in 97 and 98.
Its grove seams to be a fixture hard to shed. And it has always been strange to me, as it is such a simple song both in lyrics and construction. So, I guess it's the energy and feel that attracts... It was made during a couple hours rehearsal and recorded the day after, as we went off on tour the same month. And as you can hear, we just went for it, tapping into that thing you sometimes achieve with close friends as you play. No one made this kinda music back then, as we completely went off track, and took a nosedive into our Hard Rock roots. It has always been our thing, to mix our influences into one dirty but heartfelt sound. And this is one of those children of the Breed-Birth-Machine."

With claws of metal he'll make you die
TRIUMPH OF THE BLASPHEMER!

Another song featured on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release by Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL! Here's what S.A.Destroyer had to say:
"This one was made on the spur as we were ending the AGGRESSOR session. I had a couple riffs left in the brain, and we had Astenu in the studio. So why not make a solo based track. And we did. We put hardly any thought into it. But in hindsight it is a great track, though never performed live for some strange reason ...
It turned out so cool, we thought it rather feature the planned EP, that would follow the 1997 European tour. And the reaction can still be heard in our bunker. That EP has been a fan favourite through all the years. Really helped by the cover and the awesome feel of that release as a whole. A strange track it is, but a good one to have on this compilation.
It was also released as an alternative version on the WARTHOG 7", but we have decided to present the original EP version here."

More to come, the release is set to 26th of December to make sure your holidays don't get too calm.

"The atmosphere conjured on this album brings to mind something profane and utterly malevolent, coupled with a simplicity that is true to black metal. There is nothing overly technical on this album, though everything is executed exceptionally well as the band shows their knack as songwriters."

Want to know what the SEELENFRESSER release by Schrat will look like? Check out this sick cover by Dan's Putrid Art and the tracks featured on the album!
In SEELENFRESSER (soul eater) the "Schrat" is the main control part of a three-headed creature bringing the apocalypse over humanity in a conceptual inverted bible invocation over three sections. Dead people make the heads grow and activate the power of runes they use to bring more death. This misanthropic creature symbolizes the unholy trinity working against humanity.

Since we cannot provide you with the Apognosis-song, here we can present another track from the upcoming Temple of Evil-album APOLYTROSIS!

Composing this concept album has been an internal struggle through which the band experimented and exposed themselves to new lyrical and musical paths previously untrodden.
Each song on this album was approached and composed by portraying each state of being. The album serves not as a continuance of The 7th AWAKENING, but rather the next chapter in the evolution of Temple of Evil!

Raising our fist, to the final destruction
Bestial temptations, ALCOHOLIC RITES!!

For this track from the upcoming FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release by Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL, S.A.Destroyer got some backstory for you:
"Kinda says it all this one... We drank A LOT in those days, and a good part of life was exactly that; An Alcoholic Rite. And Ed captured it perfectly as we made the BLACK CULT demo, and he came with this song, packed full of uber-thrashy riffs. So, we did the only thing reasonable... We drank like Hell and recorded it. Both times we've recorded it, we went piss drunk in the end. Resulting in the clanking of bottles you can hear on the recording, and the party mood reaching epic proportions, before we got thrown out of the studio. Something that happened several times during the AGGRESSOR session. But well worth it, as it translated the great feel onto this classic track."

Look forward for more history on the tracks from the upcoming release in the following weeks!

As you may have noticed, we got a little more action on our Youtube-Channel than usual, as we're uploading a lot of videos that were premiered on Metal Vault. The reason for that are the fraudulent copyright-claims against our partner Metal Vault by some random idiot under the name of "Cristóbal Lopez", whose only goal was to take down this channel for featuring a video of a certian band or certain label (both not related to us, of course).
To make it clear: we DO NOT have any stakes in thoses games, but will take measures to protect our releases. So far, we are unable to reupload the Temple of Evil-title song from the upcoming album, as it was claimed by said idiot in order to take down the MV-channel. For now, we have to see that #Youtube will loosely let down any of of their channels for malicious attacks, as MV has vanished earlier yesterday.

If you have any information regarding the identity of this "Cristóbal Lopez" (or whatever his real name is), please contact us.

So long, and make sure to regularely check out our own Youtube-Channel for the latest releases!

Titan beast, superior being: MAGGOT MASTER!

S.A. Destroyer about the Maggot Master-track, featured on the FACE YOUR AGGRESSOR (25 YEARS IN THE BUNKER) release by Nocturnal Breed OFFICIAL:
"I remember really trying to make that slow part sound like worms... Pretty wacky, but that was my goal for this song. Written in only a few hours, a night between takes, during the Aggressor session. It also oozes of the huge 'Euro-Thrash' influences on us and the whole Oslo scene in those days. I wanted speed metal over the top, cut off by the sleaziest, most slippery chorus I could come up with. So here it is featured on the compilation, as it's also such a kicker with the fans too. Always mustering some of the wildest headbanging sessions from the thrashiacs live, as it has been a staple on more or less every gig we have played."

Something out of the ordinary here:
We got news that the Metal Vault-Youtube channel, the Symphonic Black Metal Promotion-channel and the channel of Panos Frantzios are maliciously attacked by false copyright claims by a "Cristóbal Lopez", taking down music from bands like Besatt and Eminenz Official (among various others).

As we know the person behind Metal Vault for some time now and can just say he is nothing but very reliable, the appearance of more claims on the other channels just makes the claims even more suspicious - to say the least.

If YOU have any possibility to reach out to YouTube and help these channels, please do so! So far, it seems that there is some kind of personal vendetta going, while accepting the destruction of the work of years at those channels at the same time.
