THE black Metal release of the Malaysia extreme Metal scene in 2016? Go ahead, hear the sample at our narrowards.bandcamp.com bunker, this is something that have not been heard of in the local scene. IV V I IV reigns.

STORTREGN "Uncreation" NARROW018 - 01052016

Simultaneously on the 1st of May 2016 is the release on the cassette tape format of the debut album from Switzerland's STORTREGN. Yes, largely escapes the radar of most contemporary extreme Metal listeners, we who dig deep, deeper and deeper; into the cauldron of the most obscure and lesser heralded gems, decided to honour "Uncreation" with a limited NARROWARDS cassette tape plague.

"Uncreation" will not dissapoint if you're into well-played, well-crafted death/black Metal largely owning up to the legacy of DISSECTION. No straight carbon copy here, that large chunk is disseminated and reassembled to become STORTREGN's own.

100 copies as usual, on our preferred folded A4-sized layout, with fire-branded tape label that works well with the whole album concept, it's a NARROWARDS tape so that is to be expected.

RM15 (tidak termasuk pos) / USD12 or EUR10 (Shipping inclusive)

01052016: DEMONICAL "BLACK FLESH REDEMPTION" NARROW017

Our second collaboration with the masters DEMONICAL, in the form of the limited cassette tape edition of their raging mini-album "Black Flesh Redemption".

Released under license from AGONIA RECORDS with direct and totalitarian art direction by the band via Kontamination Design, the cassette tape edition comes in slipcase with inlay inside, on a pro-duplicated tape with a minimalist approach on the label to go in line with the release and NARROWARDS stylism. The normal Norelco box will be included if you purchase directly from us, in case any of you find the need for it.

If you didn't find DEMONICAL make sense at all with the ultimate in Swedish death metal darkness, then I suggest you don't listen to death Metal at all. Crucial.

RM15 (tidak termasuk pos) / USD12 or EUR10 (shipping inclusive)

NARROW016 : ESCARNIUM "Excruciating Existence"

"Excruciating Existence' is a fine example of an excellent death Metal album, agreed upon by so many respected underground journalism in the year 2012. ESCARNIUM is perfecting the art of combining unbriddled South American death Metal aggression with the skilled Scandinavian perfection. One massive album that shouldn't be missed. Three years later, this is still a monster in its own right.
The NARROWARDS appreciation comes in folded A4 cover layout with all the necessary inclusion, a manipulation by MFEH from the original artworks of the CD version. We try to force your utmost attention when listening to this, so there will be nothing more than a minimalist approach for the tape label of these professionally duplicated cassette tapes. As an bonus the band decided to include 2 (yes, TWO) exclusive live tracks for this edition, intentionally not mentioned in the cover layout, for this is an onslaught of total death Metal extermination that demands total immersion. Initial run of 100 copies edition.

RM15 tidak termasuk pos / USD11 / EUR10.

NARROW015 : GOATLUSTING CHAOS "Sadogoat Illumination" [SOLD OUT]

We have a strict control here at NARROWARDS (at least we think so) of what we released, especially for the Malaysian related ones. Since that it is more than appropriate for our releases, no matter how limited they are, to get scattered in every possible regions this world has, it is appropriate to say that they should have their own distinguished merits and are able to get noticed for all the right reasons. Thus the release of GOATLUSTING CHAOS "Sadogoat Illumination". This is a never before released recent recording of them until now, and expect nothing but relentless, crushing and precise black death Metal of the highest order. Expect something like a mix of IMPIETY fury but being more primitive and traditional, loaded with an abundance of potent sex drugs and goat-inclusive orgies for that delirious assault. An 18 plus minutes blasphemy that crushes most Malaysian releases for the year 2015.
The usual NARROWARDS standard of folded A4 cover with back layout that can be doubled as an A4 poster, professionally duplicated tapes with self-stylised red tape label, and all the designs by the band members themselves getting it the way they wanted it to be. Initial run of limited 100 copies.

RM15 tidak termasuk pos / USD11 / EUR10. [SOLD OUT]

07072015: HERETICAL "Daemonarchrist - Daemon Est Devs Inversvs" (NARROW014)

HERETICAL "Daemonarchist - Daemon Est Devs Inversvs" has been officially released on the K7 cassette tape format on the 7th July 2015. This is the type of album that always ignites my senses. Those that I don't have any clue or expectation about, yet hit me unexpectedly like a full-bloodied blow to the face. "Daemonarchrist..." is a total invocation of seriously brilliant, fatal offerings of symphonic black Metal with that inclination of flawless execution. While more than often nowadays symphonic black Metal has been accused of being way too wimpy and impotent, this album clearly does not. The aggresiveness and intensity are always preserved, the symphonic elements are there to heighten up the atmospheres and moods. Talking about variations, anything from the likes of violins, synths and FX are being utilised, right to some unorthodox approach in the song writings and vocal lines. It is modern yet it is still ancient to the core. Finish it off with a blistering productions. Should have known better since HERETICAL has been in existence since more than twenty years. There never is a more perfect timing to hear them out than now, with a masterful album as the testimony.
Presented in the usual NARROWARDS way, with a spare no account folded near A4 sized full inlay that is tastefully done by Azmeroth of HERETICAL himself, a free reign in the artistic direction without restrictions and censorships. The tape label is once again going the NARROWARDS route with the intention of getting that archaic, cryptic look, which means each tape label is different with each other, what you will have in your hands is the only one that exist. We have also utilised a different, somewhat better (we think) paper and printing process this time around (as to be seen with this tape and the recent re-press of PUTREFIED REMAINS "Novus Ordo Seclorum"), resulting in a tight fit of the inlay within the Norelco box, as if it can't wait to burst out just like the album do.We are trying to give your money's worth with every release, that is a pledge. And I won't be surprised if some will turn it as a mini-poster too, it is certainly looks that good. Limited initial 100 copies run in this disguise, as usual.

RM15 plus postage / EUR 8 / USD 10
