After 7 years of existence, New Zealand’s oppressive ritualistic black/death metal horde Witchrist finally calls it quits with two final releases towards the end of 2014. Vritra is the final EP of this excellent band, and sees KzR of Bölzer taking over vocals from Void. While running at merely 11 minutes, Vritra is a fitting swansong to the band’s 7-year career.

2014 marks the ten year anniversary of New Zealand’s Diocletian, and the advent of their most barbaric and ferocious release to date, ‘Gesundrian’. Drawing inspiration from early masterpieces by the likes of Voivod and Morbid Angel, ‘Gesundrian’ is a development on Diocletian’s trademark unrelenting steamroller approach with the barbed aggression not heard since their earliest works.
