New release out now! This time we do release the long awaited third part of the More world, less bank series. Started by Blindead Productions and us back in 2003, the follow-up was released back in 2005. Now, six years has passed and it is time to unleash a third part upon the world!
More than the half of the pressing is gone already, so act fast if you want this.

There will be a limited version of the Future Ruins, just as the Anatomi-71 and Passiv dödshjälp albums! Release is suppose to happen early 2012.

The place where we keep our audiofiles will be closing down their server at new years eve. This means some redoing has to be made. Expect a few bumps on the audiofiles this week.

As usual, the items are being dispacthed on the releasedate. If you want, write a note while placing your order if you want all or two parcels if you order anything else as well. Even the preorder has to be paid in full to be valid.

There are a few limited Anatomi-71 and Passiv dödshjälp albums left. Why don't you place an order on all three at the same time? We all know that releases from Halvfabrikat are mandatory... Right?

2011-09-21 - Eskatologi​a söker vokalist
Eskatologia har sedan slutet av 2007 vevat melodiskt d-takts crust, och söker nu en ersättare för vår trotjänare Anders som valt att lämna oss.

Vi har två skivsläpp i ryggsäcken (7" - Början På Slutet, 10"/CD - Split w/ Distress), och under vintern ska vi in i studion för att spela in ytterligare två skivor för vilka vi redan har labels klara. Du som ny vokalist kommer vara med på en av dessa plattor.

Vi har spelat live sedan 2009 och har hunnit avverka gig i Mexico, Belgien, Holland, Tyskland Danmark och Sverige.

Vi försöker göra mellan 15 och 20 spelningar per år och tänker fortsätta ungefär på den nivån.

Om du är intresserad av att testa att skrika med oss, - släng iväg ett mail med info om vem du är, vad du gjort tidigare och gärna hänvisning till någon mp3:a där du vrålar.

Nedan kan du kolla in vad Eskatologia handlar om:
