AF018 Hulder – De Oproeping Van Middeleeuwse Duisternis
Our Ancient Future compiles both Hulder recordings onto one cassette tape, De Oproeping Van Middeleeuwse Duisternis. As Hulder shows zero indication of relenting, this compilation will prove mandatory in the coming years for those who worship the likes of early Satyricon, Mayhem, Black Cilice, and anything that impales the psyche with raw malice.
AF017 DRUX – Herkeleth
From unknown hinterlands of western Sweden comes DRUX, impenetrable black metal violence. One unknown man stands accountable for DRUX, and Herkeleth, originally released in 2016 on an extremely limited CD, represents his entrance into the underground.
For fans of anti-human black metal like Antaeus, Hatespirit, Striborg.
AF016 Vanvid – hol
Psychoactive and highly paranormal black metal recorded two years ago in one delirious ten hour session, hol is the debut and sole recording of Icelandic duo Vanvid. Four tracks of warped second wave black metal and one epic spell of dark ambient to seal the madness make hol a demo as substantial and immersive as a full album.
For fans of Gorgoroth, Ungfell, Wagner Ödegård.
AF015 Abysme – Acrid Life
With Acrid Life, Pittsburgh’s death metal power trio return after seven years of reclusive inactivity. After all this time Abysme reemerge with their sound completely unchanged to present 5 new tracks of cryptic and mid-paced death metal. Crushed in the grip of doom, or blasted apart and skewered by solos, every moment of Acrid Life evokes the grave and the dreadful fear thereof.
Mandatory for fans of Derkéta, Nunslaughter and Contaminated.
AF014 Defecrator/Ritual Genocide – Anti-Human Deathcult/Death Exalted
Northern California’s mid-paced conflagration Defecrator joins in unholy warfare with the vortex of warped torture and mauling chaos that is Reno’s Ritual Genocide. Three counts of unmitigated assault from each camp; altogether nothing but hateful, honed, and highly intolerant drumfire for twenty-five minutes straight.
AF013 ATTRITION: Demo 1
After subsuming its previous incarnation, Atomic Grave, this one-maniac death unit raised the banner Attrition and discharged its first attack in the form of hand-dubbed cassettes. Available initially in only two runs of ludicrously limited copies, Attrition’s debut tape is a three-stage charred-black and total death strike that leaves nothing behind except a sick admiration for one’s conqueror.
AF011 TAPHOS NOMOS: MORTALES DELENDI SUNT
Leftover stock from the Taphos Nomos/Tomb Mold East Coast Tour. "Three songs captured at The Dig Site on the occasion of a stormy weekend, in preparation for Natural Death MMXVIII."
AF010 PLAGUE PHALANX: INIQUITOUS EUGENICS
Hooded in black anonymity, these San Jose-based voidtroopers return to the year 2017 bearing seven new arms of annihilating blackdeath supremacy. Iniquitous Eugenics inflames the bestial impulses and invokes indiscriminate genocide with pestilential guitars, panzerblast drums, and warped vox like ghastly howls from the slaughterhouse drainpipes. Gluttons for Sect Pig, Goatpenis, and Crurifragium will relish this filth.
Limited to 200 copies includes download code. Terror repeats on both sides.
AF007 TAPHOS NOMOS / URÐUN: R.I.P. 12" LP
Available for the first time on vinyl, R.I.P. proves that all along there existed a tacit competition between Urðun and Taphos Nomos. An unspoken challenge to see which band could write the most brutal song. With Rarely Investigated Phenomena, Taphos Nomos show themselves to be more disciplined and laconic with their death metal, but all the gothic weirdness that you loved about West of Everything Lies Death is not only present, but refined and more creatively blended in. While Urðun simply just got better at ripping off heads. Their Rigorously Intensified Putrefaction sounds perfect on vinyl, that most arcane format, where the maddening depths of their morbidity are here best explored.
Limited to 300, hand-numbered, vinyl lp's. 100 Transparent Red/200 Black. Comes with a 2 band stickers + download code for MP3, FLAC or WAV file Order here.
AF009 HELLFIRE DEATHCULT: Death Worship
A name that’s earned a reputation for consistency and devotion, Hellfire Deathcult—in only four years—have carved their niche with napalm, jackhammers, and an unflagging delivery of unholy warfare. Yet on Death Worship, their third release to date, Chicago’s hooded beasts somehow outdo themselves. Hear mutated wild boar vocals spew nuclear hate. Hear riffs like infernal winds of hell rupturing forth from the earth, chased with bat-winged tormentors and leather-clad eaters of carrion. Hear drums blasting and blasting like some desperate gunner unloading round after round in an attempt to take the goddamn thing down. More than Archgoat’s supporting act, Hellfire Deathcult have transcended their bestial bonds for something purer evil. Death Worship is six attacks (plus an intro) of unstoppable demonic violence against humanity.
Limited to 200, hand-numbered, pro-quality cassettes, pro-printed j-cards. Comes with a download code for MP3, FLAC or WAV file Order here.
AF008 MORIBUNDUS CHRISTUS: The Morbid Cult ep
The Morbid Cult is the debut offering from Moribundus Christus. Four spells of unholy and necrocophonous depredation to warp your mind and rape your soul. Fans of Orgy of Carrion, Satanize, Voltaic Omen, and similar methods of aural destruction will revel in Moribundus Christus’ relentless bestial assault. This is deep and real black metal, caustic to outsiders and pretenders. Moribundus Christus is grinding black metal filth. Recommended if you hate.
Limited to 100 Hand-Numbered Professional Cassette + digital download code. Order here.
AF006 HELLFIRE DEATHCULT: Culto A La Muerte
First released intangibly upon touring stateside with Archgoat, Hellfire Deathcult’s Culto a la Muerte is a deadly scourge spreading rapidly throughout the underground. After a necessary six-month incubation period this noxious blend of pestilential torture is finally manifest in its physical consummation. Bearing nine curses of atmospheric and bestial cruelty cast against all life and sworn with the secret sign by a band rabid with vitriol and possessed by manifold evil.
A mandatory purchase for followers of Antediluvian, Teitanblood, and Genocide Shrines. This is Culto a la Muerte.
AF004 DEFECRATOR: Satanic Martyrdom 7"
Following up last year’s traumatizing Tales of Defecration demo, Northern California’s Defecrator now unleash their latest opus, Satanic Martyrdom, on 7” vinyl from Our Ancient Future Records. Judging by the hellish sounds captured on this recording, it’s evident that the trio spent the time between the demo and Satanic Martyrdom whetting their blades and antagonizing their sadistic urges.
With two new statements of confrontational blackened death chaos, Defecrator prove their volatility is matched only by their restraint, and their dedication to the production of profane aural devastation.
AF005 ABYSME: Strange Rites 12"
Originally released in 2012 on CD by Hellthrasher Productions, Strange Rites is the first and only full length by the Pittsburgh-based death metal trio known as Abysme.

Three years later they emerged from the catacombs once more with Strange Rites.
Ten tracks of subterranean and eldritch death worship now available for the first time on vinyl only from Our Ancient Future Records.

Sönderfall --translated as decay-- is the wretched and murderous debut EP from Naturvidrig, a black metal band originating from the Swedish countryside of provincial Värmland.
