Tom_Cruise666 Really killer stuff. Has that unique and demented feeling that brings to mind the greats like Masters Hammer and Mortuary Drape to name a few. Catchy and bouncy riffs that drill their way into your skull and memorable vocal performance. One of 2019's best without a doubt. Favorite track: Moonshine Glance (An Iron Seed In Sour Soil).

Nate Has the feel of Cultes Des Ghoules. Top production quality will still retaining that raw darkness black metal has. Has a nice length to it too.

Wallow Within For a reason I can't explain, I didn't like their demo. However, I could see straight away that there was something coming from them. Now it finally came, and I don't regret a single second of the waiting and doing research on the band. It's a supreme album. While I'm still on my first play-through every song so far ended up in my favourites. While it's 100% black metal it still reminds me of the dirt and filth of a Pungent Stench record. Best IBH release since the latest Black Cilice LP.

IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present HAGZISSA's striking debut album, They Ride Along, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

HAGZISSA are an Austrian black metal band founded in 2016 by B. Moser of the engimatic Kringa. Having been a rough concept for many years, even dating back to the days before Kringa, the process of HAGZISSA's awakening has not only been a heart- and mind-consuming one, but also deeply personal. However, since the very beginning, it has been clear that this journey would not start as a solo effort, and thus did B. seek suitable comrades to flesh out his vision.

Eventually, a working HAGZISSA lineup coalesced and a first recording undertaken. It manifested itself as Promo 2017, which was actually recorded the year before but spread only to the band's closest contacts. Duly impressed by the band's olde-worlde black metal, IRON BONEHEAD released Promo 2017 on cassette tape, and momentum surged toward a full-length recording.

Alas, after establishing themselves as a formidable live entity, this now-solidified lineup of HAGZISSA - L. Pachinger on drums (also of Kringa), C. Rastelli on bass, M. Morast on guitar, and B. Moser solely concentrating on vocals - delivers their debut album, They Ride Along. Indeed, the album is aptly (and enigmatically) titled, for here do HAGZISSA walk a path of ancient wickedness. Theirs is a black metal that's both older than time itself yet exceedingly fresh in its feral, wild ways; to call it "obscure" would be an understatement, but one need only look at the band's visual presentation to see that HAGZISSA are on their own, horrid wavelength. In fact, despite Austria's potent yet oft-overlooked contributions to the international language of black metal, one could favorably liken They Ride Along to any handful of '90s iconoclasts hailing from the Czech Republic and Poland or the gutted 'n garish horrors released by the late, great Nazgul's Eyrie Productions.

Open the imagination and submit to animalistic abandon. Here do HAGZISSA command They Ride Along.
