KUDOS TO YOU!

Band:THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Album:KUDOS TO YOU!
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

2014 brings Kudos To You!, the 7th full length studio album from Seattle’s The Presidents Of The United States Of America. Since 1994, PUSA has been spreading their skewed and joyous brand of pop to audiences the world over. PUSA has no idea where this album came from.

As “full-time part-timers”, PUSA had thought themselves to be “post album”, enjoying a relaxed and limited touring schedule combined with liberal hammock time. When they booked two days with their longtime producer and FOH engineer MARTIN FEVEYEAR last October there were no expectations, and no material other than Singer Chris Ballew’s notebook. WHOOPS things got out of hand, and a month later Kudos To You! was tracked, necessitating changing their annual PUSAFEST shows in Portland and Seattle to record-release shows. Zing!

Kudos To You! is a happy mix of old, new, and brand spanking new, that should hit right at the soft tissue of PUSA fans old and new. Ok, mostly old, but still it’s a fun listen and should eventually be purchased by everyone on the planet.

TEN YEARS SUPER BONUS SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Band:THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Album:TEN YEARS SUPER BONUS SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY EDITION
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Since 1994, The Presidents Of The United States Of America have been spreading their skewed and joyous brand of pop to audiences the world over. They are to date the only band to emerge from Seattle’s criminally under-exposed music scene. They are musical geniuses, and often write their own press releases. They have lost multiple Grammies.

Rescued from a heavily guarded time capsule bunker fortress on Mount Rainier, here is the last remaining cache of The Presidents Of The United States Of America’s eponymous debut in the rare TEN YEAR SUPER BONUS SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY EDITION. This record has sold four million-ish copies worldwide, and features the mega-hits LUMP, PEACHES, and KITTY and has a handsome sticker on the shrink-wrap telling you as much. There are thirteen bonus tracks not on the original, including outtakes from the sessions, demo versions, and recorded versions of live staples. As if that weren’t enough, there is also a DVD enclosed with eight (8!) videos and band commentary. Priced as a regular cd, this is a phenomenal…nay, a generational bargain and should cause widespread panic at record shops worldwide...

 

 

UNVEIL THE MYSTERY 2007-2012

Label:UNICORN DIGITAL

CATHARSIS ABSOLUTE

Band:AVICHI
Album:CATHARSIS ABSOLUTE
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

AVICHI is the sole vision of black metal multi-instrumentalist Andrew Markuszewski (aka Aamonael), who was an initial founding member of popular and notorious U.S. black metal act Nachtmystium, a band in which Markuszewski has made several appearances in through Nachtmystium’s existence. Markuszewski also is one of the main musicians in his other main band, namely blackened sludge metal abomination Lord Mantis.

But AVICHI is Markuszewski’s outlet to show that he is one of America’s underground visionaries in its black metal scene. Forming in 2006 and releasing the debut album “The Divine Tragedy” only showed promise at what AVICHI had to offer. But it wasn’t until AVICHI’s Profound Lore debut, “The Devil’s Fractal” where awareness would build even more, awareness in which will go that much further with the new AVICHI album “Catharsis Absolute” in solidifying AVICHI as one of the premiere U.S. black metal bands today.

“Catharsis Absolute” sees AVICHI create a wholly new expression of virulent yet enlightening sophisticated black metal and sees Markuszewski create his most accomplished musical work to date.

 

 

LABYRINTH CONSTELLATION

Band:ARTIFICIAL BRAIN
Album:LABYRINTH CONSTELLATION
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

NY based death metal band ARTIFICIAL BRAIN was conceived in 2011 by Revocation guitarist Dan Gargiulo and ex-Biolich vocalist Will Smith (Biolich, coincidentally being the former band where several members would end up forming CASTEVET upon Biolich’s break-up). After conceiving a demo and a two-song EP, ARTIFICIAL BRAIN have unleashed their devastating debut album “Labyrinth Constellation”, and album which shall be a platform for such a band to be recognized amongst the elite amongst one faction of the U.S. death metal scene.

Like past bands such as Nocturnus, ARTIFICIAL BRAIN bring a sci-fi element into their brand of twisted guttural death metal. More or less thematically and aesthetically (as witnessed on their stunning album cover painted by Paolo “Madman” Girardi), the sci-fi themes that run rampant throughout ARTIFICIAL BRAIN’s music complement the complex brutality that ARTIFICIAL BRAIN offer with their brand of cosmic dissonant dark death metal.

Overall, “Labyrinth Constellation” (recorded, mixed, and mastered by Colin Marston of Krallice, Gorguts, Dysrhythmia etc. in his Thousand Caves) will serve its purpose with its own unique take on the death metal genre and an album that will fit accordingly alongside the Profound Lore’s twisted death metal contingent with such bands as PORTAL, MITOCHONDRION, GRAVE MIASMA, and ABYSSAL.

 

 

DEATH BY BURNING

Band:MANTAR
Album:DEATH BY BURNING
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

February 2014 sees the two piece German monster MANTAR release their debut album on Svart Records. Recorded earlier in 2013 and titled "Death By Burning", the album is a raw, self produced and 100% DIY display of power. The half German, half Turkish band has existed for less than a year and released one limited run 7" - sold out by the time you read this. MANTAR manages to sound heavier than most five piece bands you may know, in spite of the fact that no bass guitar was used on this record. Just drums and guitar set for destruction. Forget about Rock 'n Roll. This will hurt. Flogging beats and blackened melodies meet feedback orgies and doom mayhem. Early Melvins, Motorhead, Darkthrone. You name it. Don't call it sludge though. Everything as black as possible. A soundtrack for the final battle. Ltd digipak CD.

NO 2

Band:SAMMAL
Album:NO 2
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Sammal is that good old friend you've never met. Free from the confines of a scene or part of any genre wave, like the wild moss their name translates to. They have conjured a rare album, quite of its own but nostalgic in only the best way. A band that manages to capture a sense of golden moments in Finnish music, naturally and without pretensions. Vocals that soar confidently and warmly with beautiful lyrics which, though sung entirely in Finnish, are utterly relatable due to the passion in the voice and beauty of the compositions, made more arcane by the sentiments the sound evokes. Lyrics translated inside the booklet are a magic discovery of a band that inspires more about their culture and heart than most well known Finnish bands today. "Sammal began when we were staying at our singer's summer cottage one autumn, listening to classic rock and prog LPs with a barely functioning vintage turntable. We had played in English language bands for some years, and that night we discussed our common interest to write songs in our native language and to follow the freely flowing creative spirit we heard on these records. We wanted to use music and the Finnish language to paint landscapes that are completely alien to modern day stress and musical pigeonholing. Free association and freedom of expression are still at the core of Sammal", comments guitarist/keyboardist Jura Salmi.
