After a month of slow activity due to being away, Exitium Productions has returned to its regular function once again. I had received a couple of emails regarding tapes which had a faulty recording. Unless stated as a pro-tape, all Exitium cassette releases are individually dubbed on a high quality system and whilst we check many of our cassettes, some of these can escape our quality check. For those whom this concerns, send an email to exitiumprods[AT]gmail.com if your order is faulty in any way.
UNDYING - A Haunt Within The Mist
UNDYING was started in 1999 by Hiraedd with the sole purpose of creating austere black metal of a superior calibre; bleak, cold and grim. One album, "A Haunt Within The Mist" was recorded in 2004, capturing the spirit intended.
Exitium are proud to present the first cassette edition of "A Haunt Within the Mist", a truly magnificent work of cold, atmospheric Black Metal which has managed to remain obscured due to various complications before its intended CD release via Eerie Art Productions, thus we have felt that it is our duty to finally bring this album of resplendent darkness into form and release the haunting spirit of Undying. Undying displays a modern interpretation of the nature mysticism which inspired bands such as EMPEROR, STRID and early ULVER, "A Haunt Within The Mist" has yet to be recognised for its deserved place as a classic album of impeccable composition and atmosphere.
"A Haunt Within The Mist"
Limited to 100 copies with tape sticker. Available from 18/03/2013.
ABYSSAL - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay.”
ABYSSAL are a mysterious entity from the UK that play a twisted form of demented, ambient, dark epic death metal. Early 2012 they self-released their crushing debut album “Denouement”. Just over two months ago, on Jan 01, 2013 they unleashed their newest opus of death metal horror entitled “Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius”. Once again self-released by the band via hand-assembled CDs and digitally, “Novit…” would inevitably make quite the impression with its uncanny atmosphere of utter death metal darkness, reminiscent of the vibe found within such entities as MITOCHONDRION, PORTAL, ANTEDILUVIAN, and BLUT AUS NORD (biography via Profound Lore).
This impression had lead to a conspiracy between ABYSSAL and Profound Lore Records to release an official limited CD version of “Novit…” packaged in an exceptionally designed digipack with altered and slightly enhanced artwork (courtesy of Chimere Noire). Simultaneously Exitium had formed an agreement to represent this aural leviathan in a beautiful pro-tape edition with a fold-out poster inlay, Amidst the dictum of Chaos behind ABYSSAL's murky, surreal horror “Novit…” evokes a monument of rot, as testament to the atrophied world which man inhabits.

Limited to 150 copies. Available late April 2013.
Prices now in UK£...
All prices have been converted into appropriate conversions in UK£. Given that this is our used currency, the semi-practical idea of using Euros as a universal cesspool for the majority of our orders had prevented fragments of different currencies in our PayPal account and whilst we still intend that all payments be sent in a unified currency, we found that many of our prices in Euros were barely able to break even for new releases after conversion. The prices are now average, if somewhat slightly below, for the item in our own currency. If you find that the price of one item has increased slightly in its Euro/Pound conversion, this is because we could no longer continue to stock it so far below the average cost, especially when doing so has had virtually no impact thus far.
During the inception of this year, EXITIUM has birthed an amorphous growth under the imprint title EINHEITSPSYCHOSE (Unitary psychosis) in order to release music which, though united in the vision of Exitium, does not fit completely with the label. EINHEITSPSYCHOSE is the industrial imprint of EXITIUM for ambient, noise, electronics and experimental music.
We will take this time to state that the purpose of EXITIUM is to release unique and specially presented editions of great vision by humble men which praises the ultimate Void and the cessation of Being, to return to the source of Absolute, the Nothingness from which all failures are born. Our associations with the occult is one of many paths to follow, but our vision remains steadfast as always. We do not believe in a better world, or that man has the keys to his salvation and wisdom; we see a great, cosmic yawn from the gnashing maw of God.
The first of forthcoming releases under both EXITIUM and EINHEITSPSYCHOSE concerns a unity with several projects of the Urban Desolation Collective (UDC); a loose confederation of bands based in the North of England around the Teesside area, tightly bound to it psychologically, and representing an insular, isolated pocket of resistance to mediocrity. Though many of the bands involved use the aesthetics of urban decay, this is not the reason for such unity. The grouping was established by The Axis of Perdition in 2003, and EINHEITSPSYCHOSE are proud to represent them through our releases.
"...all within the Universe that strives for entropy and the ultimate cessation of activity. Which is to say all of it."
('Physical Illucinations in the Sewer of Xuchilbara...', Code666, 2004)
The first of these releases (IOB008/EHP001) shall be the first official re-issue of the long sold-out demo, "Corridors" from the AXIS OF PERDITION. This chaotic work of rusted industrial filth was originally presented in 20 self-released CD-Rs as a split with Pulsefear, the predecessor and alter ego of The Axis of Perdition's haunting ambience. The Pulsefear tracks were re-recorded and still available from Profound Lore Records' "Perichoresis" (available here) and should be considered a necessary aspect of understanding the beginning of the Axis, and an important part of one's listening experience to the early demo.
This tape edition of "Corridors" limited to a first edition of 150 copies is presented in a unique handmade packaging (soon to be revealed), with new original artwork and printed lyrics for the first time, featuring the original demo recordings of AXIS OF PERDITION as well as exclusive bonus material which ought to have been kept hidden against better judgement...
THE ICHNEUMON METHOD (And Less Welcome Techniques)
The third of these releases (IOB010/EHP003) shall be a 10 year anniversary re-issue of the now sold-out debut album "The Ichnuemon Method (and less welcome techniques)" (Rage of Achilles, 2003). This menacing, intimidating album presents a harrowing and twisted descent into irreparable decay, both in the world and in one's psyche, weaving technical melodies and dischordant chaos amidst a journey further into the Axis, deeper into the darkest urban chasm of rust and blood...
This tape edition of 200 copies shall include unique handmade packaging, unreleased and exclusive material absconded from the original release and new renovated artwork from Brooke. This release signifies the point from which the Axis became an entity of its own as THE AXIS OF PERDITION, the descent where the flesh spiral begins...
The album may be streamed from the player below:
The second release solely by EINHEITSPSYCHOSE is a unique tape box (50 copies) titled "Wishful Beginnings" (EHP002) featuring the unreleased demos I and II of death industrial/power electronics project CAULDHAME. Demo I "Fear of the Flesh" and demo II "The Wastelands of Failure" present two combined expressions of violent and dark industrial noise, as vile for the harsh aural uproar as it is for the narrative which directs this musical antithesis. Minimalist recycled paper artwork and strident noise is a fist in the face of style over substance and Cauldhame deliver an eerie and vociferous attack which paves the broken path of debris...
More information to follow for each of these forthcoming releases on behalf of the Urban Desolation Collective...
