We're here to help keep you up to date on all things Mephisto during the Covid-19 pandemic.
19th May 2021 - Metal Hammer Magazine
Mephisto - Caribbean Rebellion
Today we received confirmation of our inclusion into the world famous Metal Hammer Magazine (Portugal).
It's a massive achievement to be included into one of the biggest Metal Mags in the world, especially coming from Cuba where there is limited press coverage of Metal bands and their exploits.
We have the track Pentafixion included on the compilation CD that comes with every copy of the magazine in addition to a write up about our latest full length album and the band as a whole.
In addition to this great news, we can also confirm that an interview with our brutal guitarist Fabian will also be appearing in the Baixista Magazine Rokk issue, with content also being released in Guitarrista Magazine in their June issue. The same compilation CD will be distributed in that issue as well.
The link is here if you wish to view the original transcript on the Metal Hammer Portugal Website - https://metalhammer.pt/mephisto-subsolo
( Metal Hammer is a monthly heavy metal and rock music magazine, published in countries around Europe & in the United Kingdom. Metal Hammer articles feature both mainstream bands and more unusual acts from the whole spectrum of heavy metal music).
The review of the album Pentafixion is a ripper and we're so glad to share it with you right here below:
Review: From Cuba - that's right! - Mephisto take the black, cold and ceremonial metal from Scandinavia to the Caribbean. At a time when metal subgenres are no longer dictated by geographic rules, this band proves that the lesson can be studied and performed anywhere in the world. Based on black metal, but with a few hints of death metal (especially in the sharp riffs and ghastly voices), the eucharistic organs and mind-boggling guitar solos reign in shredding mode. It is also worth looking at the visual concept of “Pentafixion”, which focuses on the incomprehension shaped by older generations (perhaps even a mirror of Cuban society) in relation to news and other ways of life.
Metal Hammer Portugal - 04th April 2021
Do yourself a favour and rush out to buy this great magazine. You'll get heaps of great interviews and stories in addition to a one of a kind compilation CD featuring the best up and coming metal masters in all metal genres.
03rd May 2021
Well what a few crazy months it has been!
This time 2 years ago we were supposed to be on tour in Nicaragua but as you know by now, Covid struck and wiped out more than just people.
Instead we concentrated on completing our album and working hard behind the scenes to bring it to the attention of numerous labels.
Our signing at the back of 2020 to Worm Hole Death records has lead to some amazing opportunities for the band despite not being able to get out and tour.
We've officially released both our 1st Single off the album (Pentafixion) in addition to releasing the full length album of the same name earlier this year.
These can be found right here -

We followed this up with the release of our first ever lyric video "The Mighty Ring" which can be watched right here -https://youtu.be/j6uvP0pQdGQ
Finally we can now reveal that the album Pentafixion has also been picked up in Japan and will be distributed by Worm Hole Death Records - Japan Branch.
This is such a big deal for us to be part of a label that supports and encourages your work. Thank you WHD!
In Other News
Currently work has already begun on a new full length album. Yes it shows that they can't sit still but with massive lockdowns still in place around the world, the best thing they can do is keep writing and recording.
Here's a sneak peak at the titles of the tracks selected for the new album.
01 -Intro: Blasphemy birth in Transylvania
02 -Before thy Darkest throne
03 -Symphony of wolves
04 -Mausoleum of immortals
05 -Lord Dracula
06 -Monarch of Wallachia
07 -IV moon domine
08 -Under moonlight I wish
09 -One dead kiss in aeternum
10 -The Carpathian chronicles
No date is set for this release as it's way too early to think about releasing this during a pandemic.
26th March 2021
THE WAIT IS OVER!!
Mephisto launch their brand new full length album Pentafixion.
An epic journey consisting of 13 tracks, this album is more than just 13 songs.
No, this is an offering to the darkness and all creatures that live amongst it.
A brutal yet stunningly arranged album that comprises guttural vocals, driving intricate guitar riffs, clockwork drumming, all mixed amongst orchestral overtones and choral accompaniment.
Don't take our word for it though. Here's what Daphne Minks Daly from Metal Temple had to say about the Pentafixion album...
Forefathers of the Cuban black metal scene, MEPHISTO were quite literally the first to label themselves a black metal band in Cuba.
Blending classic nineties-style black metal with a multitude of genres, MEPHISTO's music is nothing short of monumental.
The album contains a plethora of influences, such as melodic death, groove, and thrash metal. The brutality and impeccable musicianship move alongside symphonic overtures. The operatic performances are nothing short of jaw-dropping. MEPHISTO does a magnificent job of putting a unique sound together with razor-sharp precision.
The album opener, "Intro (Enter The Storm,)" is an absolute work of art. So much so that I listened to it twice. This cinematic soundtrack is merely a precursor to what comes next. "Storming War Anthems," the album's second track, is a phenomenally heavy tune with excellent guttural vocals, plenty of change-ups, and even a bit of thrashy groove. It's a perfect example of masterful song writing.
The title track, "Pentafixation," has an entirely different tone, taking on power metal elements with grandiose change-ups and a bold chant-along. This will undoubtedly be a no-miss show once live music returns. MEPHISTO melds their talents to create a complex tune with well-executed, unexpected style changes.
"The Birth," the fourth song on the album, is a wealth of hidden nuances. The background vocals are divine, and the hammering guitars only add to the hauntingly orchestral mix. Roller coaster drops and sick basslines make this a complex and unbelievably enjoyable experience. So good, in fact, that I removed my headphones and cranked the song up for a bigger sound.
"The Falling," track six brings another unexpected change-up in the flow of "Pentafixation." Emotive strings offer a foreboding feeling of impending doom that prepares the listener for the harsh, growling vocals soon to follow. Furnishing commanding drum work, the song's orchestration is impressive. "From Hobbiton Toward the Mountains of Gorgoroth" is the ninth track on this phenomenal album, and it does not disappoint. Although relentlessly black from the very start, it's tough not to catch a little bit of folk or power metal influences in the mix. A fabulously epic journey, the name of this song is perfect.
Without a doubt, "The Last Battle," is this reviewer's favourite track. Immediately, the listener is transported through the halls of hell to embark on a ruthlessly nightmarish trip of a well-combined mixture of symphonic black metal coupled with doom metal undertones. With excellent guitar work, sick basslines, and impeccable drumming, the song's vocals never become overloaded or stale.
"Pentafixation" is a long album. But each of its thirteen tracks are well worth the time.
Power-packed and chock full of blackened grooves, MEPHISTO is a diverse band that's sure to keep audiences captivated.

Whoo hoo. Our first lyric video has been released!
In the lead up to our official album release, The Rings of Sauron Part 1 - The Mighty Ring has been released and is now on YouTube.
Shaped and forged in the very fires of Mordor, Mephisto belch forth their debut lyric video “The Mighty Ring”. An offering to the dark and blackened souls that own the night, straight from their soon to be released full length album “Pentafixion”.
An epic tale of evil destruction with a devilish delicious twist in the tail! The Dark Lord has lost his might!
"The Mighty Ring" is a track taken from MEPHISTO's upcoming and long awaited album "Pentafixion", due for digital release on 26 03 2021 via Wormholedeath / The Orchard worldwide.
You can view it here at this link - https://youtu.be/j6uvP0pQdGQ
or you can pop over to our video page right here on this website so you don't have to leave us so soon.
Facing further lockdowns thanks to a resurgence of Covid 19 community transmissions, the only thing left to do was return to the writing sessions that have been focussing on delivering a follow up album to Pentafixion. Yes we know Pentafixion hasn't been released yet but there are so many great songs in our heads right now that we simply must get them down in some format for future sharing with you after the pandemic lifts.
Whilst we were busy doing this, our Label and Management team have been working side by side in the creation of lyric videos, securing press articles and promotional stories for the band.
We are so excited to have WHD and Rock Puppy on board as it means we can focus on what we do best (write and perform), leaving all the "fun" stuff for others to take care.
These lyric videos will be strategically released over the coming months to give you a taste of our album Pentafixion.
What a month January turned out to be.
Within days of announcing our signing to Wormhole Death records, our first single was released globally in Digital Format via a press statement from our label.

Well if things couldn't get more crazier in 2020???
November saw shows slowly coming back to live in our home town but even with lockdowns and restrictions in place for the best part of 2020, it hasn't stopped us from working on our latest album or making plans for 2021 and beyond.
Our management dragged us into the 21st century by adding our very own Instagram and twitter accounts. We've updated our website, Facebook and YouTube pages in addition to finalising the release plan for our new album Pentafixion.
Our management team hasn't sat still either. For the past few months they has been working on something very special and today we are pleased to announce our biggest news in the history of Mephisto.
MEPHISTO SIGN WITH WORMHOLE DEATH RECORDS
On behalf of all members of Mephisto we wish to announce that we have been offered a contract with the long established and well respected Italian label Worm Hole Death Records.
It is our pleasure to announce that after some discussion, Mephisto have accepted the offer and now enthusiastically join the label.
We can’t wait to start working with the team at Worm Hole Death after following their label and their artists for many years.
To now be considered part of this family is a long awaited dream come true.
We are excited to be bringing our style of Cuban Black Metal to the world thanks to the relationships Worm Hole Death has with its partners including Warner / Chappell Music Holland BV and The Orchard Inc. (Sony Music Ent).
We look forward to our first release with Worm Hole Death which is our full length album “Pentafixion”, an album that we have been working on for the best part of 2 years.
Who knows, maybe the back catalogue will be released sometime on WHD too!
We’d like to officially thank Carlo from WHD for being so passionate about securing us to the label.
The work and dedication shown by him is incredible!
From finding us in Subtle Death Magazine, to reaching out to its editor (Omar Vega) to contact us, to the late night calls to our management (in Australia), all the way through to walking us through the deal.
We couldn’t be happier knowing that our music and our career are in great hands with WHD.
So what can you expect from us now?
Well just because you can see the mountain doesn’t mean the climb has finished.
Now the hard work begins to reward our fans for their patience waiting on our new album and to show WHD that the new kids on the block came to kick heads and take names.
Look out world….
Mephisto the pioneers of Black Metal in Cuba have just been unleashed on the world and it’s all thanks to Worm Hole Death Records!

It has been a very long couple of months for everyone as we learn to come to terms with a global pandemic. It meant for us, our tours and shows were cancelled and numerous plans had to be postponed or completely scrapped. But with all of this happening, we can still appreciate that we are together as a band, no one got ill or hospitalized and the break in shows allowed us to revisit some areas of the new album that we weren't quite happy with.
We continued to write new sections and re-record them in order to fully develop the sound and feeling that our fans have come to know and trust.
Upon completion of this, we sent the album to a great friend of ours Samuel Santiesteban at SS Home Studios for mastering and final clean up / normalising it all. (yep it's a technical term which is weird coz there's nothing normal about us or this awesome album).
The album will be released soon enough now that we are happy with everything, however you need to wait a little longer as there are some exciting plans and news afoot.
Can't say any more for now but we promise that it will be worth the wait.
Well this month arrived in an explosion of fast paced action and organising as our home town province came out of lock down and resumed all live shows (albeit in a reduced capacity and face masked up for everyone unless on stage). This meant the reintroduction of Metal HG Festival presented at the venue Caligary on top of the roof overlooking the main square of Holguin. The event was planned and executed perfectly with all Covid safety regs being adhered to and no injuries or sickness present on the night.
It allowed us to get back to what we do best, perform live.
And perform we did!
We've got some footage of the show up on Facebook and YouTube and we'll add it to our Video Page here to.
