CEMETERY URN - Barbaric Retribution LP
CEMETERY URN should need no introduction. A staple of the Australian extreme metal scene, for over a decade now, the band have been a study in staunch self-reliance, self-booking two highly successful tours across the United States as well as releasing their first two albums on their own Cemetery Recordings. Although HELLS HEADBANGERS would release those first two albums - 2008's "Urn of Blood" and 2010's "The Conquered Are Burned" - on vinyl in 2011, CEMETERY URN's spirt is fiercely independent. Not to mention that they've a deep history in that Australian extreme metal scene: founding guitarist and songwriter Andrew Gillon also hails from reactivated Aussie barbarians ABOMINATOR, and previously played in the final lineup of BESTIAL WARLUST; original vocalist Damon Bloodstorm was renowned as the frontman for BESTIAL WARLUST and for ABOMINATOR from 1996-2001; and drummer Matt Crossingham, who's played with such bands as Belligerent Intent, Scars of Sodom, and Draconis Infernum.
