New Band Announcement

I am very pleased to welcome to the UKEM Records roster black metal band Deadwood-Lake !!!

Deadwood Lake

The band are relative newcomers to the UK extreme metal scene but have set about gaining a very impressive reputation both through the bands two and one full length album and intense live performances.
Those familiar with the band will know the tragic circumstances under which the band was formed with the brother of Bruce (Bass/Vocals) being killed in a car accident and with this being the focus of the band’s lyrics and music. Having lost a brother myself to a motorbike accident, I can relate to the band on all levels so it’s great to get them on board!!

UKEM is set to release the bands second full length later in 2019 and demo tracks for this album are already being prepared. To celebrate the band joining the label we have brought into the store two of their most recent releases:

Forgotten Hymns:
Forest of Whispers:

With another black metal band joining the roster, Deadwood Lake have strengthened what the label already has to offer and will represent the label well through numerous planned live performances, one of which is Warhorns Festival 2019 where they will join fellow label mates Agrona!!!

Head over the bands Facebook page and give them a like:

Digital fans can download all of the bands releases via their Bandcamp page:


Here’s to an exciting 2019!!!

Subservience photo with ukem logo_WEB

UKEM RECORDS are very pleased to welcome death metal band SUBSERVIENCE to the label roster! The band contacted me not long ago and after giving their last album, ‘Forest of The Impaled’ a listen, the decision to ask them to come on board was an easy one! Bringing Subservience to the label will definitely strengthen the roster and add different dimension to the bands we currently have.

Metal hammer recently quoted “[Subservience] mix modern advances in extremity with classic death metal brutality. Think Bolt Thrower fans who love Gojira, then add nastiness” so expect good things! If you are in any doubt, head over to the bands bandcamp page and check it out: HERE

Work has already begun on the follow up to ‘Forest of The Impaled’ with an expected release date set for late 2018, needless to say, if it be an ep or album, it will be utterly crushing!  If you want to check out the bands music video, head over to youtube and hit the like button: HERE

Please also head over to the bands page and show your support by clicking like: HERE

In support of bringing the band to the label I have stocked two of their releases in the web-store. Buying these will directly support both label and band!
