PEDAZO DE PASTEL

Band:MUDHONEY
Album:PEDAZO DE PASTEL
Label:FOLC RECORDS
Format:12
Genre:ROCK N ROLL - GRUNGE

In 1992 Mudhoney left Sub-Pop and signed with Warner Brothers’ subsidiary Reprise Records. Having already worked on a batch of songs, we set out to demo what we had. My buddy from high school, Rolf Bertieg, and his friend Jim Collier had set up a studio in the basement of Jim’s house in the Wedgwood neighborhood of Seattle, where, armed with a few tunes and several cases of beer we made these recordings. The songs on this record would eventually be re-recorded and released on our album Piece Of Cake, except “Knock It On The Head” which has remained unreleased until now. (Maybe there’s a reason for that, but I’ll leave it up to the listener to make that judgment.) The energy and the vibe of these recordings reflect how we wish the final Piece Of Cake would have sounded. Hope you enjoy this archaeological dig through our past.

REFLECTIONS

Band:GODTHRYMM
Album:REFLECTIONS
Label:PROFOUND LORE RECORDS
Format:2LP
Genre:DOOM METAL

GODTHRYMM was formed in 2017 by vocalist/guitarist Hamish Glencross (ex-My Dying Bride/Vallenfyre/Solstice) and sees the respected UK metal luminary return to his doom metal roots, creating the music he was known to help forge with Solstice (on the legendary “New Dark Age” album) and especially with the heralded My Dying Bride from the 2000 – 2014 time period. Further adding to the GODTHRYMM pedigree of doom, joining Glencross is ex-My Dying Bride/Anathema drummer Shaun Taylor-Steels who, after some slight lineup refining (following the band’s “A Grand Reclamation” debut EP), became the core of GODTHRYMM with Glengross as the two would end up recording the colossal GODTHRYMM debut album “Reflections” (the duo would add bassist Bob Crolla following the recording of “Reflections” making GODTHRYMM a true power trio of doom) set for release on (insert release date here).

 

 

THE VANISHING

Band:INSECT ARK
Album:THE VANISHING
Label:PROFOUND LORE RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:DOOM METAL

Evoking visions of dripping and lurching horror films, outer space travel, and gritty noir textures, NYC-based instrumental band INSECT ARK is led by founder Dana Schechter (bass, lap steel guitar, synthesizers). Using delay-drenched lapsteel, distorted bass & snyths, and acoustic and electronic drums, INSECT ARK s music creates a sonic mural both uncomfortably intimate and icy cold. The follow-up to 2018 s Marrow Hymns LP The Vanishing, out Feb 28, 2020 sees Schechter team up with drummer Andy Patterson (SUBROSA) and with his addition to the INSECT ARK fold, The Vanishing further expands the INSECT ARK sound picture resulting in their most expansive, immersive, and intricately crafted album to date. Recorded and mixed by Colin Marston (Krallice, Dysrhythmia), The Vanishing flourishes through a sound canvas so immense and enveloping, cinematic and grandiose yet hypnotic, trance-inducing, and alluring at the same time. - Led by Dana Schechter who is now a member of the current incarnation of Swans and has worked/collaborated with Angels Of Light, Zeal & Ardor, Arabrot, Wrekmeister Harmonies, and Bee and Flower. - INSECT ARK now features SUBROSA drummer/producer Andy Patterson. - INSECT ARK toured extensively for their previous album Marrow Hymns and will continue to do so for The Vanishing . - For fans of Swans, Sunn 0))), Earth, Oranssi Pazuzu, and Bohren And Der Club Of Gore.

THE CHRONICLES OF WODE

Band:ACRIMONY
Album:THE CHRONICLES OF WODE
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:3CD
Genre:STONER DOOM

3CD pack that combines all Acrimony studio work from 1994-2001. Includes debut album Hymns To The Stone, second album Tumuli Schroomaroom and all tracks from compilations and split albums. Remixed and mastered in 2019 from original studio files by James Plotkin New artwork from JimBob Isaac (Taint/Hark) Chronicles of Wode is a 3CD box set from Burning World Records that brings together the bulk of the discography of Welsh heavy rockers Acrimony. It includes their two full-lengths, 1994 s Hymns to the Stone and 1997 s Tumuli Shroomaroom, both with new artwork by Jimbob Isaac (also of Taint and Hark) , as well as a third disc of off-album tracks, some of which were previously collected on 2007 s Bong On Live Long! compilation and some which were not, including a yet-unheard Doom cover, and so on. Bringing these offerings together is something noteworthy in itself the band s influence over UK heavy rock was and is formidable, and they were genuinely ahead of their time when it came to using repetition and jammy vibes as a means to hone a heavy psychedelic feel while retaining a metallic energy beneath but crucially, Chronicles of Wode gives all of these Acrimony tracks a much-needed remastering, and they ve never sounded so vibrant. That s particularly true of Tumuli Shroomaroom, but while Hymns to the Stone is more dated in terms of its basic production, that s more of a fact of how the record was originally made, and it seems no less integral to preserve that than it does to give Acrimony s catalog the detailing it has long since earned.

 

 

HYMNS TO THE STONE

Band:ACRIMONY
Album:HYMNS TO THE STONE
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:LP
Genre:STONER DOOM

First album by Acrimony, first time ever on vinyl Remixed and mastered in 2019 from original studio files by James Plotkin New artwork from JimBob Isaac (Taint/Hark) Leaves of Mellow Grace, the opener of Hymns to the Stone, which rolls out its nod like a clarion, finding Acrimony the five-piece of vocalist Dorian Walters, guitarists Stu O Hara and Lee Davies, bassist Paul Bidmead and drummer Darren Ivey immediately putting the groove first in a way that few acts at the time had understood how to do. Their influences were varied, from 70s rock to trance techno, but their riffs were undeniably heavy, with lyrics exploring the isolation of their hometown and the same kind of disaffection that once launched Black Sabbath to the outer reaches of doom from a blues rock beginning. Acrimony started out more as death metal or at least death-doom, but Hymns to the Stone was a point of discovery for them in terms of claiming their identity, and whether it s the nodding pub-homage The Inn or the myth-creation they engaged with Urabalaboom, the sonic drawl and spacey push of Spaced Cat #6 or the glorious noise-wash jam of Whatever ahead of brash closer Cosmic AWOL, Hymns to the Stone is a record that has been persistently undervalued, not just for what it set in motion in terms of Acrimony s all-too-short tenure as a band, but on the sheer merits of its material.

 

 

TUMULI SCHROOMAROOM

Band:ACRIMONY
Album:TUMULI SCHROOMAROOM
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:2LP
Genre:STONER DOOM

Second and last studio album by Acrimony. Remixed and mastered in 2019 from original studio files by James Plotkin New artwork from JimBob Isaac (Taint/Hark) Clocking in at a whopping 65 minutes prime CD era in 1997 and originally released through Peaceville Records, Tumuli Shroomaroom is a legitimate heavy rock classic. Its production was clearer, its purpose was clearer and it took the blow-the-doors-down promise shown throughout first album Hymns to the Stone and brought it to a point of full realization throughout extended pieces like Motherslug (The Mother of All Slugs), Heavy Feather and Firedance, not to mention the nine-minute opener, Hymns to the Stone, a title-track for the release before. Go figure. By 97, Acrimony s sense of world-creation was becoming clearer, and their songs not all of them, but definitely some had started telling a story beyond the riffs and nods. Of course, Tumuli Shroomaroom had and still has plenty of that too in Million Year Summer, Vy, Find the Path and The Bud Song the arguable meat of the album in its post-opener beginning and the middle of the nine-song tracklist but even amid The Bud Song s ultra-stoner janga-janga shuffle there s psychedelic flourish building on that shown at the outset of the song, and Acrimony s adventurous sensibility never really dissipates. It s just presented in dynamic fashion, and they use it to various ends throughout.

 

 

WEIGHING SOULS WITH SAND

Band:ANGELIC PROCESS, THE
Album:WEIGHING SOULS WITH SAND
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:2LP
Genre:DOOM/DRONE/PSYCHEDELIC

New master especially for vinyl by James Plotkin in 2018 Artwork is reverted tot he original one done by K from The Angelic Process. With a sound that fuses the layered guitar drone of MY BLOOD VALENTINE, the epic sound and tribal thump of NEUROSIS, the emotional bloodletting of JARBOE/SWANS, and complex, yet fluidly shifting time signatures, THE ANGELIC PROCESS have forged new musical ground and over the course of numerous on labels all over the world, have refined and defined a sound that one person described as "the sound my soul makes". THE ANGELIC PROCESS live is no less as intense. Blasting noise, complex melodies, droning guitar resonance, rippling bass, tom-heavy tribal drums, and hauntingly emotional vocals collide to create violently ambient songs that have a definite shape and progression, but envelope the audience in warm, bombastic soundscapes. TRACKLIST A1 The Promise Of Snakes 9:33 A2 Million Year Summer 3:54 A3 The Resonance Of Goodbye 5:16 B1 We All Die Laughing 6:08 B2 Dying In A-Minor 8:22 B3 Weighing Souls With Sand 5:23 C1 Mouvement - World Deafening Eclipse 2:02 C2 Burning In The Undertow Of God 6:49 C3 Mouvement - The Smoke Of Her Burning 4:14 D1 How To Build A Time Machine 5:43 D2 Sleepwritten 10:56

3LP LIMITED EDITION BOX SET by Seven That Spells. Remixed and mastered in 2019by the band Ten years have passed since the last visitation of Seven That Spells to Roadburn Festival. In that time, the Croatian progressives have embarked on and completed the wildly ambitious trilogy The Death and Resurrection of Krautrock, offering its three different parts Aum, Io and Omega, in 2011, 2014 and 2018, respectively. Given the massive nature and encompassing sprawl of this project not to mention the stunning results what else was there to do except invite the four-piece to Roadburn 2019 to perform the whole trilogy? Recalling their last Roadburn performance, the band says, Many still remember the utter chaos of that unhinged three-hour show, culminating with smoking amps and massive band and audience heckling. The time has come to return in style! Roadburn is the only festival that can pull off an event of this scope and magnitude in cooperation with the band, both in terms of production and attitude. All three albums of the trilogy played back to back in the state-of-the-art Green Room. An insanely brazen and mind-melting experience that will take place exclusively at Roadburn 2019! Here at Roadburn HQ, we pride ourselves on bringing you the very best and most forward-thinking acts from all around the world, and we can t wait to welcome back Seven That Spells to the 013 venue with their cross-genre epic in tow. Krautrock will be reborn at Roadburn 2019! JJ Koczan, The Obelisk / Roadburn.com
