As of November 28, 2005, Deathgasm Records and United Guttural Records have merged. The combination of Deathgasm and United Guttural will create one of the largest independent extreme metal labels in North America. After two months of negotiations, Rich Lipscomb of United Guttural Records and FLESHGRIND sold the company to Evan March, CEO of Deathgasm Records.

"Deathgasm/United Guttural looks forward to leading the U.S. death metal scene with brutal music, great service and unparalleled treatment of our artists" said Evan March in a statement.

United Guttural releases will be kept in circulation and Deathgasm/United Guttural will continue with the scheduled releases including the FLESHGRIND "Demos CD". The company plans to combine the Deathgasm and United Guttural web sites by spring 2006 in order to streamline the company and make online shopping more convenient for customers.

Deathgasm Records was founded in 1997 to provide the underground metal scene with extreme metal music at affordable prices. In December 2003, Deathgasm Records opened the first and only all metal record store in Georgia. In the process of expansion Deathgasm Records has taken over several record labels including Extremist Records, Warhammer Records, Skeptic Productions and Metal Merchant USA (ex-Gutted Records).
