Hells Headbangers is proud to announce the signing of Hades Archer. The first fruit of this union shall be the the band's second album, Temple of the Impure. A track from their previous album can be heard below.
Hailing from Chile, Hades Archer are staunchly and proudly a duo: foul and filthy, yet fuller than most bands twice their membership. Across their prolific canon, Hades Archer have come to define - and set the gold standard for - modern black/death metal hailing from South America. Rabid fans for many years, Hells Headbangers couldn't be more pleased to work with the diabolical duo for their upcoming assaults.
Hades Archer was formed in 2006 in Santiago, Chile by N-III on guitars and voice and Infernal Desolator on drums. The band launched their first demo-rehearsals through Chilean label Kuravilu, unleashing their glorious influences such as Venom, Bathory, Hellhammer, Sarcófago, Sextrash, Mayhem, Impaled Nazarene, Bestial Warlust, Black Witchery, Inquisition, and more. Later in 2007, Hateaxes Command came in on drums. With this new lineup, the duo recorded the Penis Metal and Gloria Rex Infernvs EPs - released in 2008 and 2010, respectively - and their debut album, 2011's For The Diabolical Ages. This cult era is considered by Hades Archer where the band's history truly began.
In 2012, Hateaxes Command departed and was replaced by Skullcrusher Hammers, due to N-III’s move him to Valdivia years before. With this lineup, Hades Archer launched a number of live rituals and recorded the mini-album The Curse Over Mankind. Two years later came the Circus of Abominations split mini-album with new labelmates Slaugthbbath. Once more due to Skullcrusher Hammers moving to another city and foregoing Hades Archer embarking upon future tours, the year 2015 saw the return of Hateaxes Command to record the EP Unus Cantus Bestiae, which was later reissued as a split with Japan's legendary Sabbat.
A statement from the band reads: "For the first time, Hades Archer works with a 666% professional label like Hells Headbangers, supporting us to give our best work to date. Temple Of The Impure will be the Hades Archer’s second long-player, keeping it brutal, savage, and in a minimalist style. Yielding to cult perversions and chaos again for this 2017 mid-year, another immorality of thy light age!"
