Gottesmorder on ALERTA ANTIFASCISTA RECORDS

We are very excited to announce that we will release our upcoming first full-length on ALERTA ANTIFASCISTA RECORDS, before the end of the year.
This awesome label has released some of our favourite records so we’re very proud to work with Timo and his family.
More news will coming during next months.

Official statement from the label:
GOTTESMORDER from Pisa (Italy) are the newest part of the ALERTA ANTIFASCISTA family… hellyeah!!!! thats just amazing… expect their first LP/CD by the end of 2012!!
If you are one of those weirdoes who deeply enjoy tagging and putting labels on everything on this goddamn planet better skip over this band, otherwise you may get your standards seriously collapsed. Oh, how wonderful it would be to leave all these talks about -core and -metal sub-genres behind and simply state that GOTTESMORDER is nothing but purely great and when the note is on you are witnessing the point when all hell breaks loose. And BAM! Everybody got the deal immediately.
What we get by the young and ambitious Italian threesome Gottesmorder is: “It takes some time for each song to take the spaсe as they slowly start their way like a thick and abrasive black mass slowly filling the void with atmospheric and ambientish noises and sounds to lose control then and break away into an intense black metal galloping that seems to be capable of shifting the tectonic plates and forming the cracks in the ground to unleash the «abyss of throats». The word galloping here is used actually expressly to underline the impression from the song structures by this ungodly act as they may be paralleled with a wounded battle horse movement chased by the flock of vultures. Post-rock passages unhurriedly making their way towards something nasty, bleeding by every step, are suddenly crashed to form a rushing black-metal race for revenge and salvation on the tops of the gloomy hills, with a battle cry of vocal clinging to a more hardcore side of things, that actually makes the Pisa’s spawn stand out even more from the dominance of the atmospheric post-rock influenced black metal bands today. If it’s found hard to draw up something in your mind on the essence of the record after all the chaotic epithets and metaphors provided before, well just imagine an intelligent post-metal band sacrificing to the evil spirits in the murky thickets of Cascadian forests in the lights of the crescent moon. As a result we have a treatment for those eaters enjoying the dishes by agrimonia meets wolves in the throne room meets…. I repeat… no need here to compare, tag or label any segment of GOTTESMORDER! give it a listen and it will crawl up in your guts to count every bone and blood cell of your body and live you exhausted.

HERE you can check all past and future Alerta Antifascista’s records.

CVLT Nation Sonic Cathedrals Vol. XXIII, curated by GOTTESMORDER

Sonic Cathedrals Vol. XXIII, curated by GOTTESMORDER.
Artwork by View From The Coffin.

CVLT Nation is radically excited to announce that the Sonic Cathedrals Mixtape Series Vol. XXIII Curated by GOTTESMORDER goes live today! GOTTESMORDER curated a mixtape that is packed with 19 killer dark anthems. With this mix, they handle business the same way they did with the with their 2011 EP – loads of organic emotion, and they truly created sonic art with their song selection. Now read what GOTTESMORDER has to say about their mixtape below, download Sonic Cathedrals Vol. XXIII after the jump, & blast this audio battle beyond loud…RIDE ON THE RAVEN’S WINGS INTO THE SUN!

This is a trip of the most peculiar kind – inside of our collective experiences and lives. It includes metal, crust, ambient, harsh, lo-fi music and ominous atmospheres. Part of this mixtape is an emanation of our juvenile night time visions. The other part is the soundscape shared by heavy omens, millenarist tensions to come and gloom of the dark age. Sometimes these two parts become one. In a similar fashion we’d love to suggest not just black metal, but anything that has been blackened.
