**UPDATE** Jan 2014

**UPDATE**
Things have been a bit quiet just recently but there has been a lot going on in the background! Our first Winter Sale has been a huge success, and continues to be – only 2 weeks left! We’ve been bringing new titles into the store already for 2014, to replace older titles that have sold out during the sale – lots more titles planned.

On the release front, we’re hoping to be able to rele…ase a track from Cruelty’s Heart from their forthcoming split with Frostwork. Cover art for the split is almost finished and a title has been decided. The song, art and title will be unveiled all at once, hopefully very soon! Both bands are hard at work recording tracks!

Sapient from Abomnium is hard at work in his studio completing tracks for the follow up to the very successful ‘Coffinships’. He is booked into Skyhammer Studio with Chris Fielding (Winterfylleth, Napalm Death, Primordial) to complete the mixing and mastering for the third (as yet untitled) album, the 2nd for UKEM.

Newest signings Vehement are busy gigging and writing the follow up to their e.p Collapse. Their first release for UKEM will be a 2cd release, the album being on cd1 and the e.p. ‘Collapse’ on cd2 as bonus material. Still a lot of preparations for this release!

We are also nearing completion of DISCIPLES OF EXTREMITY VOL4 which will be a charity download release in aid of Help for Heroes Official. There will be around 25 UK extreme metal underground bands featured and the download will be a “pay what you want” release and will include full booklet art for those that want to print the release out and burn it to disc for their collections!

Our current release from The Obscene has just been reviewed in Terrorizer and was described as “Morbid Angel fucked up on special brew” – fantastic description! if you haven’t picked a copy up yet, be quick!!!!!

We have also agreed a deal with Plastic Head Music Distribution to release all of our future (and some back catalogue) releases digitally. This is a fantastic move for us, as digital/download is something the label hasn’t really opted for, but having PHD on board and handling everything for us shows a strong intent to move forward into the digital market.

So, things may seem quiet, but theres a lot going on!!!!!
