Chthonic – Battlefields of Asura (, , )
28th September 2018 -

Things have been quite busy for the guys in Chthonic.

7th November 2017 -

The Black Dahlia Murder are one of the premier death metal bands around today. They have built an incredible and somewhat enviable back catalogue over the last decade.
