Step Down

Band:DEATH TOLL 80K
Album:Step Down
Label:SVART
Format:cd
Genre:Grindcore

While not quite the Chinese Democracy of underground grindcore, Death Toll 80K’s second album has been a few years in the making. Their debut Harsh Realities (2011) was a surprise hit in the murky world of underground grindcore, and the album
has since been repressed several times and the band has toured the world extensively, playing major festivals
such as Maryland Deathfest and Obscene Extreme.
Despite its exceptionally long production time, Step Down sounds anything but polished , listening to the album
conjures up images of nuclear attacks and civilization downfalls. Step down seethes with politically charged fury
against the status quo and with its reckless production values it is the perfect antidote to modern technical
cleaned up grindcore.

Droner

Band:OPIUM WARLORDS
Album:Droner
Label:SVART
Format:cd
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

After three wilderness years with doom gods SPIRITUS
MORTIS and LORD VICAR, electronic warriors TÄHTIPORTTI,
and black metal sorcerers AZ RAEL RISING, Sami Albert
”Witchfinder” Hynninen is back in business with OPIUM
WARLORDS. DRONER is the fourth Opium Warlords album,
it and brings Hynninen’s uncompromising musical vision
to its most sparse form. It is noisy lofi riff music
consisting only of particles unquestionably necessary; but
at the same time with a musical spectrum that is very
wide and open. It is experimental and avantgarde, still
with roots deep in the very heart of heavy rock music. It is
concrete blues, diving to the existence and the smallest
molecular spheres of minimal riffs, and what seems to be
an endless repetition of them. From these rather skeletal
elements it occasionally reaches neo‐classical, even
medieval spheres and death romantic chambers of
apocalyptic folk. Onto all of this, disturbing lyrics are
chanted by unnamed, hostile protagonists. The lyrics
come entirely from outside, already existing sources: a
book written by Finnish culture radical Jouko Turkka, a
ritual of Ndembu people, and a letter written by scarlet
woman Marjorie Cameron. The purpose here is to create
a soundtrack that pictures and reflects the contents of the
textual force. The result is primitive and brooding sonic
landscapes of war, ritual and death. Gone is soothing
warmth of the predeeding album TASTE MY SWORD OF
UNDERSTANDING. DRONER is all about nuclear war, and
clear post apocalyptic primitivity of the surviving culture. It
is torturing purification through purgatory, to a new world
and new form of life.

 

 

DRONER - LP

Band:OPIUM WARLORDS
Album:DRONER - LP
Label:SVART
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Atmosphere and destruction clash here in a cold whirlwind of out there bluesy doomed metal and exploratory abstraction. Evoking themes of folklore, solemn histories and distant lands, the album tells a story like a film or a quest, lurching through dynamic peaks and sombre lows, with all-powerful grace.

Double LP Format. 

 

 

Ad Portas Serpentum

Band:AGUIS DEI
Album:Ad Portas Serpentum
Label:SVART
Format:cd
Genre:Black Metal

ANGUIS DEI represents True Satanik Black Metal. It represents the extremity of Hellish Orchestral Black Metal:
harsh, majestic, and spectral soundscape based on Satanism, Demonology and the True Primordial Black
Metal tradition. The formation of this sect occurred back in MMXIV anno bastardi.

True Black Metal at it's peak.

 

 

The Mayor Of Toytown Is Dead

Band:MORDECAI SMYTH
Album:The Mayor Of Toytown Is Dead
Label:MEGA DODO
Format:cd
Genre:Psychedelic Rock

Mordecai Smyth’s debut album ‘Sticky Tape and Rust’ was the very first release on the Mega Dodo label.
Since then he has been toiling on something rather different. But what, exactly? Well, the wait is over...and it is my
unfortunate duty to inform you that The Mayor of Toytown is Dead. But this is no cause for sadness: Mordecai is
still very much with us, although the short, sharp numbers of those Sticky Tape days have gone. They're longer now
but still with hooks aplenty ‐ accessible and challenging in the best tradition of progressive rock. Mordecai prefers it
to be known as "regressive rock." He's also called upon the assistance of a wide pool of talents. Among them is
Dave Lambert (Strawbs, The Fire) who contributes lead guitar to the album's opening and closing tracks.

 

 

San Francisco Nights - Live 1979-80

Band:FLAMIN' GROOVIES
Album:San Francisco Nights - Live 1979-80
Label:Vogon
Format:cd
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Flamin' Groovies is an American rock music band whose peak was in the 1960s and 1970s. They began in San Francisco in 1965, founded by Cyril Jordan and Roy Loney. The group have been called one of the forerunners of punk rock, and they also had a major influence on the power pop genre. In 1976 they signed with Sire Records and released the album Shake Some Action. The title track would go on to become the band's best‐known song, and it won a new cult following for the Groovies, even if they failed to break through to the mainstream. For once, the Flamin Groovies appeared to be in the right place at the right time. 1978's Flamin' Groovies Now and 1979's Jumpin' in the Night, followed and it’s from this classic period when the Groovies were at their height that the music on this album is drawn.

Band:ONSIND
Album:We Wilt, We Bloom [VINYL]
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Punk / Emo

Durham, political punks Onsind return with their first album in 4 years!
Since the release of 'Anaesthesiology' in 2013, Daniel Ellis and Nathan Stephens-Griffin have been impressing the indie-pop
world with their new band Martha, releasing two full lengths and a number of 7" singles. 'We Wilt, We Bloom' is a welcome return to their decade long band Onsind. Recorded earlier in 2017 by Phil Booth at Nottingham's DIY hub, JT Soar, the new album sees the addition of bass, drums and extra vocals, courtesy of Naomi Stephens (who also plays in Martha), Jay Cavalier (Personal Best) and Claire Swift, expanding upon their usual acoustic sound. politically the last 4 years have been rough time in the UK; stagnating wages, underfunding of the NHS and mental health services, soaring rents and house prices, an increase in inequality, concurrent Tory governments, Brexit. 'We Wilt, We Bloom' is an album which encapsulates the despair of living in modern day Britain as a young, left-wing, progressive.
Onsind aren't offering an answer, or futile sloganeering but here's an album which might leave you feeling a little less alone.
