- Thevetat "Disease to Divide" CD out now and tshirts available. -


Apologies for the delay with updates. We had to switch servers and underwent downtime. Heres the latest: Thevetat "Disease to Divide" CD is out and down to its final copies. Tshirts for this release were also made. Sizes S-XXL and a few girlie designs. $15 plus postage. Image will try to be presented here, otherwise check the Destro Records and Thevetat facebook pages.
NY classic death metal band make their first offering. Deep in the mind since 2004, it wasn't until 2011 the beast that is Thevetat took its proper shape. Total filthy death metal is spewed forth in this three song demo. Crushing riffs, gutteral vocals, and relentless blasting open the gates of hell. Featuring members of Ceremonium, Hemlock and Cerebral Haemorrage, Thevetat bring unholy power to the abyssic domain of corruption with an emphasis on strong songwriting and occult themes. Disease to Divide is a cooperation between Dark Descent and Destro Records. Death metal that speaks for the dead.
This is a LIMITED replicated CD (not CDr) and comes housed in a matte finish digi jacket with front cover art by Alex Morkh Shadrin.
Many new titles have arrived including Blood of Christ, Funeral Pyre, Perversor, Uncanny, Cianide, Havohej, Sanguis Imperem, Anhedonist, and more. They will all be added to the merch catalog after somethings are ironed out.

In other news, some recent customers have informed us they had trouble with the paypal service on the official website. It appears there needs to be a repair to that end. In the meantime orders are still possible using paypal. When you make an order you can create your own invoice and send it that way.

- Ceremonium "Where Roses were Planted Thorns Grow" CD cover teaser revealed!-


The cover artwork for CEREMONIUM's upcoming double discography CD, "Where Roses were Planted Thorns Grow", has been posted online at this location.
Ceremonium "Where Roses were Planted Thorns Grow"
"Although it's coming along nicely, it is by no means finished," the band writes. "The artist, Peter Sallai, will be adding many more ideas, like angels and demons resonating through the forest scenario."
www.mortpaintgraphics.com
According to the group, "The long-delayed disc will not be released through Extreem Music as previously reported. Instead, the double disc will see the light of day through Japanese label Weird Truth Productions in January 2007. Additionally the special release will include the long out-of-print jewels 'No Longer Silent', 'Into the Autumn Shade' and many previously unreleased material plus CD-ROM live stuff, just the way they were originally presented."

- Destro releases and distributed titles on ebay-


Hey hey hey...Update for all your metal needs. Ive been selling merchandise through ebay for a long time and our precious cargo is creating a big enough buzz, that I figure it would be a smart idea to post the listings here for those of you looking to score some cheap merchandise especially when using the Buy it Now option available. These are not used (unless the listing specifies differently, after all this is a personal account. The company account is soon to follow), these items are brand new and unplayed, and certain listings feature a link where you can preview clips before making a choice, so stop by and browse a few moments through our compelling listings and make sure to check back frequently for the official Destro Records ebay store coming soon.

We've created a profile on myspace, to reach a wider audience, so just send us a friend request to find out the latest information about our artists, preview the clips, the slideshows and more!!!!

- Grotesqueuphoria need label home-


Infidels exiled!!!! Despite having a great run with us, we decided to drop Grotesqueuphoria from our roster. Realizing the shows, fests, and interviews we arranged for them time after time were ending in vain, became unwise for us to do anymore. Growing up together, we always had a very positive space between us, and personally I can foresee activating their out of humanly dimensional graphix somewhere down the road. We wish them best of luck. Being free agents, the group can be contacted through their website (see link page) or their myspace account:

- Grotesqueuphoria -

 

Rising from the infested gutters of Long Island comes the much anticipated second offering from New Yorks
brutal death / grind metal sickos, GROTESQUEUPHORIA. "Conquered By Corruption" contains eight tracks which
launches the listener into a chaotic half-hour trip of pure old school death metal with technical overtones sure to satisfy the fans of GORGUTS, HUMAN REMAINS and IMMOLATION. Playing throughout the late 90's under the former names of Butchery and Exuviate, the band members have made a series of offerings which were well recieved by the metal public. Both the "Blackest Blood" demo of 1998 and the "Exuviate" self-titled cd of 1999 were welcomed with strong reviews. GROTESQUEUPHORIA's self-released debut of 2001, "Euphoric Discordance" took it to the next level. Signing with DESTRO RECORDS in August of 2003, "Conquered By Corruption" is sure to continue the madness.

Destro Records is proud to announce our latest release, Devil Worship, by TERROR OF THE TREES. His Eminence The Wicked, formerly the creative force behind HEMLOCK and cult NY act PORPHYRIA, brings you raw, old school black metal the way it was meant to be. This CD is sure to appeal to those who crave the old eighties black metal sound pioneered by such legends as BATHORY, POSSESSED and VENOM, but far from merely rehashing riffs and ideas, TERROR OF THE TREES presents the feeling of the old days in an original context. Devil Worship is surely just the first of many black metal assaults from His Eminence The Wicked, and is available to order now through Destro Records.

CD $10 ppd. USA/$12 ppd. world
