Arkaik
Arkaik
Arkaik is currently hard at work on their sophomore effort which will be titled Metamorphignition. The plan to go into the Studio sometime in Feb. 2012. The bands intention is to create a more mature and rhythmically balanced album that expands on their already fierce musical style. It will be an evolution in which the brutality and technical ferocity will not be lost; it will merely be accompanied by more musical elements which will add depth to the sound.
The music on the album will be intertwined with a story with the intention of engaging listeners. It will take them on an abstract journey into the transcendental nature of humanity and the cosmos. Arkaik plans to head into the studio near the end of the year. We are excited to announce that the artwork will be handled by the graphic master Tony Koehl. He is in the process of designing new T-Shirt art as we communicate. You can be sure too expect a cinematically sonic and thought provoking follow-up album from us! Already titled Metamorphignition ~ It will be an epic CD and will likely be called The Dark Side of the Moon of death metal.

Alterbeast
Sacramento technical death metal militia, ALTERBEAST, is pleased to unleash their full-length debut via Unique Leader this Spring! Titled Immortal, the eight track monster offering was meticulously assembled in several locals throughout 2013. With guitars and bass recorded at Augmented Audio in Los Angeles with former The Black Dahlia Murder bassist Ryan "Bart" Williams, vocals arranged at Mayhemeness Studios in Sacramento by Bob Swanson (Rings Of Saturn) and drums tracked at Castle Ultimate Studios with Zack Ohren (Light This City, All Shall Perish, First Blood, Cattle Decapitation, Warbringer et al), who also mixed and mastered the release, Immortal promises to deliver some of the most dynamic, instrumentally adept and plainly crushing material of the year.

Elaborates ALTERBEAST on the outcome: "Immortal is what was spawned from hard work, dedication, and downright brutal musicianship. It has intricate solos, absolutely crushing interludes and brutal circle-pit anthems. ALTERBEAST sets the scene with grievous piano preceding the onset of 'Flesh Bound Text' which comes in with blistering drums and guitars effortlessly making their way around the fret board. Every piece truly has its own personality on this record, whether it's the apocalyptic soundscapes of 'Ancient's Retribution,' the devastating aggression of 'Vile Remnants' or the unmerciful grooves in 'Throne of Maggots.' This album has something for every listener and comes together seamlessly to form as a breathtaking whole. Immortal is exactly what we intended it to be: a gripping and intense death metal album."

Immortal Track Listing:
1. Flesh Bound Text
2. Of Decimus Divine
3. Vile Remnants
4. Ancient's Retribution
5. Mutilated Marvel
6. Into Oblivion
7. Serpentspire
8. Throne of Maggots

Formed in 2011 under the working title Gary Busey Amber Alert (GBAA), ALTERBEAST combines the teachings of The Black Dahlia Murder, Necrophagist and Spawn of Possession with the classic death metal mastery of band's like Dissection and Morbid Angel into an irate expulsion of sonic deviance. After a year of dedicated song-crafting, ALTERBEAST unleashed their first demo in 2012 and officially waged war on the populace with numerous shows opening for Deicide, Dying Fetus, Testament, Revocation, Exhumed, Severed Savior and many others. Their crushing live assaults combined with a DIY ethos quickly earned them a revered place within the local death metal community.

Immortal will rear its head upon the masses on March 18, 2014 via Unique Leader. Further intel, including preorder links, to be announced in the coming days.
Inanimate Existence
Inanimate Existence
Inanimate Existence was formed in Santa Cruz, California in 2012 by Joel Guernsey, Ron Casey, and Cameron Porras. Shortly after, the band started writing songs for a demo which was later submitted to Unique Leader Records. They were quickly picked up by the label and started writing their first full length.

On July 17th 2012, the debut album "Liberation Through Hearing" was released worldwide and had a great response even though the band had only been around for a short period of time at that point. After the release of their first album they went out and did numerous shows around the US and later did a full US/Canada tour in May 2013. Since then the band has released multiple albums and has toured internationally in support.
