Hereby LAVADOME proudly presents the vinyl release of Adelaide based BEYOND MORTAL DREAMS' EP "Dreaming Death."
To immortalize this immense stab of profound Death Metal devastation on the most appropriate format has been a no-brainer. "Dreaming Death", being the band's latest release since 2008's debut album "From Hell", unearths sheer passion and devotion to Death Metal and it can be said with absolute confidence, this material is strong enough to stay and survive while the current and future trends will come and go. The time is yet to confirm.
Australian bands have always been special in bringing their specific, volcano-like devastating brutality and sickeningly raw vibe to death/black metal. BEYOND MORTAL DREAMS are sure to continue the tradition finding own ways and pursuing own visions within the genre. It's the overall, incredible dynamics and haunting atmosphere of BMD's music which unites the raw yet precisely accurate sonic destruction along with ecstatic leads under one belt in order to hit human senses uncompromisingly and deeply taking the mind to a devastating journey.
The band comments on the material:
"Dreaming Death is a result of our continuing desire to create solid, powerful, dark, and atmospheric style of death metal music. Like a beast manifested through sonic destruction! We felt we had achieved this on a certain level with ‘From Hell’ but of course, one can always look for ways to expand on previous efforts. With Dreaming Death, we incorporated lower tunings to help provide a much more guttural and crushing feel to the material, as well as a slightly more melodic touch without detracting from the overall brutality of the music. The material currently underway for the next album will also expand on this idea, creating a blend of savage, dark, and atmospheric moods."
BEYOND MORTAL DREAMS formed originally in 1995 by ex-members of DARKLORD and ONI, the band has experienced many incarnations up until 2003, when the two remaining original members (Doomsayer and Hellaeon) decided to resurrect the name as a recording band only.
After the first demo record in 2004, the desire for live performance overwhelmed and live assault began with Ghuul joining the band on bass. A new demo “The Demon And The Tree Of The Dead” was released in 2006. This years also saw the inclusion of guitarist Bloodspawn into the band. The band entered studio in 2007 to begin recording their debut full length CD entitled “From Hell” which was to be released independently in 2008. Soon after, Hellaeon quit the band and the following 3 years saw BMD in a state of limbo due to the seemingly impossible task of finding a drummer with the ability and passion for brutal Death Metal. Despite the band’s hiatus, Doomsayer had continued to write new material, carrying BMD into its next incarnation. In 2010, after much rehearsing, Doomsayer had found a new drummer in Maleficus. The pair had begun work on their next deathly slab, a 4 track EP "Dreaming Death" self-released by the band in 2012. With Doomsayer taking on the bass duties as well as guitar/vocals/synthkeys, Beyond Mortal Dreams comes full circle and begins again as a recording band only.
Composing and preparations of upcoming new material – 7" EP, sophomore full-length album – are currently underway in 2013.

Death Metal has rarely been darker, heavier and at the same time original. ‘Dreaming Death’ is one of the best releases I’ve heard that scores in all areas and offers some more.
The final result is “Dreaming Death” a masterpiece of death metal.
–Heavy Hard Metal Mania
Everything on this little EP is fucking grand.

Later better than never: Thank you all for the attention you paid to Lavadome throughout 2012. You know who you are. March on!
Lunatic Necromancy represents the perversion and sadism of an insane mind, in a different and perhaps more realistic way than is typical. We do not glorify ritual murderers or serial killers. They are pathetic individuals - aberrations. What is the voice that they hear in their minds? What are their hallucinations? You will not understand them, but could you unwittingly become one?
Thank again to all of you who have purchased "The Abrogation" so far. Means a lot to us!
It's for real. The Abrogation CD is out. We really hope you will enjoy this hell of a blast of extreme death metal imagery. A lot of effort was spent to make this album really stand out and all we can do now is to hope that you will enjoy the album as much as we do.
The Abrogation could be now pre-ordered for a special price of €6 in the Lavadome store. The offer lasts until June 7th when the album price will drop to €7.
A new song of The Abrogation will be premiered on June 5th through Puregrainaudio.com. The fourth track of the album, Pazuzu Eternal, is to be revealed along with band's commentary on the lyrics. We will have more to come in the upcoming days. Keep lurking.
Thanks a lot to all of you who have already purchased the album!
June 5, 2012 has been set as the date on which CHAOS INCEPTION’s The Abrogation will be released.
The cover painting was done by Paolo Girardi.
You can now listen to the second sample from the album, to the title track itself.
Preorders, another sample will be up in the second half of May.
Be prepared for really davastating, extreme Death Metal art in the Floridian/Brazilian way!
Lavadome proudly announces the signing of CHAOS INCEPTION for a release of their second album, The Abrogation, due out in spring 2012.
On the Alabama act’s sophomore effort CHAOS INCEPTION continues to push the Floridian/Brazilian Death Metal paradigm even further into its own identifiable realm of extremity, while remaining heavily rooted in the traditional conception. Fans of Morbid Angel, Krisiun, Angelcorpse, Hate Eternal, Fleshtized and the likes should prepare for one real, Death Metal feasting. The Legacy of Extreme Death Metal Art continues and the Hellfire blasts will be unrelenting. Submit to incineration!
Below you can listen to a new song Phalanx (The Tip Of The Spear). Enjoy and read on.
The Abrogation was produced/mixed by Lance Wright at Stargate Studios in Huntsville, AL during Fall/Winter 2011 and mastered by Brian Elliot at Mana Studios in January 2012.

You can read what was written about the album after the jump.
Lavadome productions has currently participated on the release of MARCH OF THE HORDES / ESCAPE THE FLESH split CD.
Both bands execute old school death metal vibes in their own ways. MARCH OF THE HORDES deliver sharp, headbanging-inducing grooves of Swedish death metal with an undeniable influence of crust overtones. The other two tracks by ESCAPE THE FLESH smell of more putrid, doom-soaked death metal from the grave.
The material conceived by both acts has got killer production and the CD is packed in a matt laminated digisleeve.
Lavadome’s limited bunch of the split CDs has just arrived and can be purchased through Lavadome store.

Thanks for your support!
We are almost there. The release date, August 31, of PERVERSITY's "Ablaze" is nearing. In the meantime, you may check out the cover of the album and a sample of the new song "Merciless Messiah". Preorders of the PERVERSITY's upcoming album "Ablaze" along with shirts are available through Lavadome store. By the time of the official release date, we will put online another teaser of the album. The plan is to launch digital downloads as well.
“Ablaze” is about to prove what PERVERSITY's revitalized and exhilarating line-up is capable of. An intro plus nine tracks deliver skillfully executed, unrelentingly bludgeoning death metal that’s true to the obscurity of the underground. The music stands on its own as a collection of original, authentic sonic assaults, but fans of Incantation, old Sinister, and all who love to sink their teeth into complex death metal brutality will take notice where it’s all coming from.
Both PERVERSITY and Lavadome truly look forward to working together under one flag, dedicated to transmitting the band’s Death Metal message to those who still care and believe in what death metal was, is, and will be.
Stay tuned for more info!
