14 Dec 2010: PERSISTENSE: New record deal, new guitarist, new clip.
From today’s press release:
Den Bosch, Netherlands based Thrash/Death quintet PERSISTENSE (http://www.persistense.nl, http://www.myspace.com/persistensemetal) have renewed their agreement with DEITY DOWN RECORDS (http://www.deitydownrecords.com, http://www.myspace.com/deitydownrecords).
A new full-length, sophomore to ‘IN BLOOD AND HEART’ (DEITY DOWN RECORDS, 2009) will be slated for release in the second half of 2011. During the first half of the year PERSISTENSE will focus on touring extensively once more, as well as on adding the finishing touches to the new material.
The band, whose moniker often is thought to contain a spelling error while in fact it is a contraction of ‘to persist’ and ‘intense’, have welcomed new guitarist HEIN WILLEKENS, who replaces JACQUES MAAS.
PERSISTENSE recently launched a video clip of ‘THE REALITY’, a track taken from their current album ‘IN BLOOD AND HEART’. The video can be watched at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7cVIHBzehk.
20 Nov 2010: BRUTUS canceled.
According to DDR’s contact in the band, Brutus’ ‘MURWGEBEUKT/ TOTAL LOSS’ album will not be finished within the forseeable future. This has put the label in rather difficult position, since any further delay really no longer is acceptable. Regrettably the only alternative is to mutually terminate our collaboration, effective immediately.
All pre-orders will be refunded shortly.
To top off this round of bad news, the label’s agreements with Devious and Escutcheon have not been renewed.
08 Nov 2010: BRUTUS, MURDER THERAPY, VICTIMIZER, DEBT OF NATURE.
First up, just to keep everybody out there posted, there is NO change in the status of ‘MURWGEBEUKT/TOTAL LOSS’ by BRUTUS. Recently it has proven impossible to get in touch the band, and that is not a good sign.
MURDER THERAPY has been working on songs to appear on their 2nd full-length, see press statement below. The band’s contract with Deity Down Records, however, will not be renewed.
‘PRESS RELEASE: Murder Therapy: new album announced, video preview posted online.
Bologna, Italy based metalers MURDER THERAPY have posted a sneak preview online of the songs 'ANOPTIKON' and 'DRAWN BACK', both of which are to be featured on their forthcoming new album. The video, located at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87YXsL_gx2U represents the band's actual musical direction, mixing elements of extreme metal with postcore and ambient atmospheres. It was recorded during the band's October 2010 rehearsal sessions. The new as of yet untitled record and follow-up to SYMMETRY OF DELIRIUM (2009, DEITY DOWN RECORDS) will be recorded during the first months of 2011. Currently the band is available for negotiations with record companies.’
‘Murder Therapy performing 'ANOPTIKON' and 'DRAWN BACK’
VICTIMIZER’s album ‘TALES OF LOSS AND NEW FOUND SERENITY’ did suffer some delay at the factory, but late last month it finally arrived. The album’s release dates are now as follows:
November 1st 2010: Benelux.
December 1st 2010: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Greece.
February 1st 2010: UK, IE, Rest of the world.

DEBT OF NATURE will perform at NORDRHEIN WESTPHALEN DEATHFEST’s 10th anniversary on November 13th. The band has got a lot of positive momentum coming their way, which they are sharing with the world via (bi) weekly newsletters. So far there have been two of them, published on the band’s My Space http://www.myspace.com/debtofnaturemetal.
12 Sep 2010: VICTIMIZER, Debt Of Nature, BRUTUS and general Deity Down Records news.
The first reviews of VICTIMIZER’s album ‘TALES OF LOSS AND NEW FOUND SERENITY’ have come in (see http://www.deitydownrecords.com/victimizer-tales_of_loss_and_new_found_serenity-reviews.html). The artwork still is suffering from delays, but hopefully we’ll be able to actually release the record in October. Pre-ordering already is possible from our shop section. Songs from ‘TOLANFS’ have already been played on Metal Wahrehouse (NL, http://www.metalwarehouse.nl/wp) Kicks Extreme Metal Radio (BE, http://kicksextremeradio.com/blog/2010/09/08/playlist-kicks-08092010/) and Brutalism Radio (http://www.brutalism.com/content/show-36-2010). No doubt there’s more to come, but we wish to extend our thanks to Niels (Metal Warehouse), Bruno and Peggy (Kicks) and Twan (Brutalism).
The reviews page of DEBT OF NATURE’s ‘Crush, Kill And Burn’ CD (http://www.deitydownrecords.com/debt_of_nature-crush_kill_and_burn-reviews.html) also has been updated with 7 new ones.
The definitive release date of BRUTUS’ album ‘Murwgebeukt (Total Loss)’ still cannot be set. Both the audio as well as the artwork remain under construction at this moment.
Last but not least: there will be no new signings for the time being. However, if you are in need of assistance in the promotional field or beyond that, we are available to discuss options and conditions.
30 Aug 2010: BRUTUS: Wacken Open Air footage available, album update.
BRUTUS' Wacken Open Air 2010 preformance turned out to be a special event. Along with Schoft (guitars, vocals), Bastaerd (guitars, vocals) and Yuma van Eekelen (drums), bassist/vocalist Ploert climbed the stage, thus reverting the band's line-up into three quarters of its original state. Below you can view ‘Geestesziek (Ill Minded)’, taken from the forthcoming album 'Murwgebeukt (Total Loss)', followed by 'Slachtbeest (Slaughterbeast)', title track from the band's 2003 debut full-length.
‘Geestesziek (Ill Minded)’
The mix and mastering of 'Murwgebeukt (Total Loss)' yet has to meet its final hour. At Deity Down Records, the release date of the limited EU digi has been pushed back until further notice.
07 Aug 2010: DEBT OF NATURE: Spider Rock & Tarantula Salad.
Thrashing Death Grind outfit DEBT OF NATURE (http://www.myspace.com/debtofnaturemetal, Düsseldorf, Germany) have partnered with Monheim, Germany based SPIDER ROCK PROMOTION agency (http://www.spider-rock-promotion.com, IN EXTREMO, DORO). The agency will represent the band effective immediately.
Guitarist Marcus Italiani comments: "Together we came up with a great concept that will help bring the band and our current album „CRUSH, KILL AND BURN“ to the foreground. We are looking forward to working with Spider Rock Promotion".
„CRUSH, KILL AND BURN“ was released last July 12th through DEITY DOWN RECORDS (http://www.deitydownrecords.com). So far the album has received enthusiastic reactions worldwide. At this moment the band focuses on live activities later this summer and beyond.
Die Düsseldorfer Thrashing Death Grinder DEBT OF NATURE (http://www.myspace.com/debtofnaturemetal) lassen sich in Promotion-Angelegenheiten ab sofort von der Monheimer Agentur SPIDER ROCK PROMOTION (http://www.spider-rock-promotion.com, u.a. IN EXTREMO, DORO) vertreten.
Gitarrist Marcus Italiani dazu: „Wir haben gemeinsam ein tolles Konzept erarbeitet, das uns und unser aktuelles Album „CRUSH, KILL AND BURN“ bestimmt weiter nach vorne bringen wird. Wir freuen uns sehr auf die Zusammenarbeit.“
„CRUSH, KILL AND BURN“ wurde am 12. Juli über DEITY DOWN RECORDS (http://www.deitydownrecords.com) veröffentlicht und erntete weltweit begeisterte Reaktionen. Momental probt die Band für die zahlreichen Live-Aktivitäten, die ab Spätsommer anstehen.
18 July 2010: BRUTUS, PERSISTENSE, MURDER THERAPY, VICTIMIZER news.
First up: unfortunately the release of BRUTUS’ album ‘Murwgebeukt (Total Loss)’, sophmore to ‘Slachtbeest (Slaughterbeast)’ has been pushed back, most likely to early September of 2010. The final bricks in the wall of the completion of the mix and mastering are taking more of an effort than expected. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The good thing about Brutus’ suffering somewhat of an extra delay delay is that Deity Down Records could possibly release ‘Murwgebeukt (Total Loss)’ together with VICTIMIZER’s label debut ‘Tales Of Loss And New Found Serenity’, an album on which Dan Swanö is close to shedding his last drops of sweat over. Like Brutus’ album, judging from the last know mixes known here at the office, VICTIMIZER’s CD will sound nothing less but absolutely killer.
‘Persistense joins Doomstar
We are proud to be on the Doomstar roster with such great bands. For us, this is a great opportunity to play live even more. Both Persistense and Doomstar, are very enthousiastic and one of the first things will be a package together with State:Chaos.
So watch out for some kick ass gigs soon!

Düsseldorf, Germany based Death Metal band DEBT OF NATURE have signed an agreement for the release of their forthcoming full-length ‘CRUSH, KILL AND BURN’ through DEITY DOWN RECORDS (Netherlands).
Recordings, engineered by CARSTEN REHMANN (JAPANISCHE KAMPFHÖRSPIELE, UNCHALLENGED HATE) are scheduled to take place at CKB Studios (Essen, Germany) during February, the result of which will be mixed and mastered at ANDY CLASSEN’s Stage One Studio (KRISIUN, ASPHYX, BELPHEGOR, LEGION OF THE DAMNED, HOLY MOSES) in March. ‘CRUSH, KILL AND BURN’ should be ready for release around May of 2010.
Along with a brand new logo, DEBT OF NATURE introduces new drummer KEVIN ‘Kev’ SIEPMANN and female lead vocalist MASAE DAUSEND.
The complete line-up, left to right:
Kevin Siepmann (Drums)
Marc Göhring (Vocals ex-LEGACY OF DARKNESS)
Stavros Kamari (Bass, ex-ROUND THE VOID, ex-AFFEN MIT WAFFEN)
Simon Lukassek (Guitars)
Marcus Italiani (Guitars, Backing Vocals)
The band comments:
‘It's kinda cool to sign with a company that is really into music. Gerard of Deity Down records is not only a cool guy with a good taste, but even came down all the way from Breda to Düsseldorf, just to see us play live. That's pretty astonishing in a time where other labels just check the total hits on a band's myspace- or facebook-site to sign them. But that's definitely the same approach to music that we have and therefore we have the greatest respect for the label.’ (Marc)
’It's an amazing thing to be on a roster with great bands like Thanatos, Murder Therapy, Devious or Persistense. This is just the beginning - be prepared!’ (Marcus)
Die Düsseldorfer Death Metal Band DEBT OF NATURE hat für ihr nächstes Album “CRUSH, KILL AND BURN” beim niederländischen Label Deity Down Records unterschrieben.
Die Aufnahmen starten im Februar in den CKB Studios (Essen), unter der Aufsicht von CARSTEN REHMANN (JAPANISCHE KAMPFHÖRSPIELE, UNCHALLENGED HATE). Den Mix übernimmt ANDY CLASSEN (KRISIUN, ASPHYX, BELPHEGOR, LEGION OF THE DAMNED, HOLY MOSES) in seinem Stage One Studio im März. ‘CRUSH, KILL AND BURN’ wird voraussichtlich im Mai 2010 erscheinen.
Zusammen mit ihrem neuen Material präsentieren DEBT OF NATURE auch ihren neuen Drummer KEVIN ‘Kev’ SIEPMANN und ihre neue zweite Shouterin MASAE DAUSEND.
Das komplette Line Up v.l.n.r.:

Marc Göhring (Vocals ex-LEGACY OF DARKNESS)
Stavros Kamari (Bass, ex-ROUND THE VOID, ex-AFFEN MIT WAFFEN)
Simon Lukassek (Guitars)
Marcus Italiani (Guitars, Backing Vocals)
Die Band über ihren Deal:
Es ist cool, bei einer Firma zu unterschreiben, die aus wirklichen Musik-Fans besteht. Gerard von Deity Down Records hat den Weg von Breda nach Düsseldorf auf sich genommen, um uns zu treffen und uns live zu sehen. Das ist wohl nicht der Normalfall in Zeiten, da Labels bei ihren Signings nur noch nach Zugriffen auf Myspace- und Facebook-Seiten gehen. Wir haben denselben Zugang zur Musik. Deshalb empfinden wir großen Respekt für das Label. (Marc)
Es ist großartig mit unglaublichen Bands wie Thanatos, Murder Therapy, Devious oder Persistense. Und glaubt uns: Das hier ist erst der Anfang - be prepared!’ (Marcus)

The band comments:
"We decided to take another step in doing things our way. We have uploaded our entire album, hoping it will stay online a long time. We know we are not the first band to do this, and will not be the last, although most of the time albums are streamed only for a limited promotional time. We want to use this blog to be clear about what we are doing. There are certain beliefs about the music/internet relationship that we think don’t make sense anymore.
To think that downloading an album equals a failure in selling it is madness. Thinking that streaming an entire album could demotivate its purchase is absurd (unless the album is really bad, eh eh). Having the listener find somewhere else (blogspots, Torrents, P2P..) a “preview” of the entire album, instead of having the band present it is nonsense.
So, in the attempt of taking back what is ours and present it to our listeners in the way we think is right, we decided to leave our entire album “Symmetry of Delirium” online. If you think our music is interesting listen to it here and maybe tell us what you think about it, it will be more than appreciated. And if you feel like supporting Murder Therapy, grab our merch online, in a store or at our concerts… now!"
