We’re excited to be able to give some details about the upcoming Death Metal Compilation, A Death In New England. Some of you may have already been able to check out the cover art submitted by Mindy Scurto for the 7th in the series of Metalcage releases, I was out Saturday night handing out flyers at the Mayhem/Incantation show in Providence, RI.

Non conoscevo la tortura dello scafismo prima di incontrare sul mio percorso osceno gli Scaphist e gli Scaphism. Poi sono arrivati i Gutslit e un loro brano dal loro grandiosoAmputheatre. Se ancora non ne sapete nulla, leggete e poi tornate qui. Entrambi i gruppi a tema sono estremamente validi, ma in questa occasione vi parlo dei secondi, provenienti da Boston.

We’re extremely excited to be able to bring our region’s amazing New England Metal scene to the world. We have worked on 6 fantastic releases, with well over 50 talented bands, across 6 states. We have covered mixed genres from each state and have presented both a Doom Metal Compilation and a Black Metal Compilation, all featuring bands from the New England Region.



Now, we are working on the latest genre specific compilation, a Death Metal Compilation. Over the past few weeks we have had an incredible response from bands from Rhode Island to Maine. Some veterans of the scene even promise to bring us NEW material !!!

Our goal has been reached to begin the next phase of production with the commitment of 10+ bands. Now we can move forward with the release. More bands are welcome to get involved and submit a track by April 1.

The band list thus far…

Desolate MA
Angel Morgue NH
Headrot RI
Scaphism MA
Necronomichrist MA
Fog Wizard NH
Witchking RI
Plea of Insanity
Lower the Casket RI
Toke MA
Possessed Entity MA
Wretched Abomination NH


Any local New England Death Metal Bands Interested in participating should contact us via email at


Thanks to all the bands and thank you for listening.

New England is a treasure trove of Metal music. With quality bands from every genre/sub-genre imaginable. Every once in awhile a few stand out. Malacath is one of those projects that does just that.

Deep in the White Mountains of New Hampshire shines a beacon of glowing hellfire. A masterful creator of black art who’s talent is only scratching the surface. Heard in the offerings to date, we have mearly witnessed the unholy birth of greatness that is to come. Malacath, with each release, exposes a slightly darker yet, increasingly more proficiency in the arrangements and production.

Saturday night I made a point to head into Providence and catch New Hampshire native Angel Morgue at Dusk. I had been intrigued by their Bandcamp offering (embedded below) and their performance video I had seen on YouTube. So, I figured I would get out  see them live.

After a little over a year’s absence, I’d like to Re-Launch TheCage. I had moved south for a while and could not bring myself to falsely report on local New England bands and events. 

I apologise to those who submitted tracks for the New England Black Metal Compilation and would still like to pick that back up and release the album. I’ll be contacting those involved to get their feedback.

In this Re-Launch I’d like to try and do something a little different. I’d like to add some contributors. So, if anyone is interested in submitting their ideas, interviews, reviews or news items contact me at mailto://
