NEVER CROSS THE DEAD

Band:HOODED MENACE
Album:NEVER CROSS THE DEAD
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

HOODED MENACE mastermind Lasse Pyykko is a legend of sorts within Finland’s underground death metal scene forming Phlegethon in the late ‘80s and being active within the death metal underground during the course of the early-to-mid ‘90s. Recently though, he’s been one of, if not the most prolific musician within death metal surfacing with several killer acts such as Claws, Vacant Coffin, and Acid Witch. But HOODED MENACE has been the act Lasse has gotten the most attention and buzz with, his true calling manifesting in some of the most vile, old-school and sludgy death doom today.

Only formed in 2007, it didn’t take long for HOODED MENACE to create buzz with its doomy death doom that mirrors some of the most classic and legendary acts of the genre such as Winter, old-school Cathedral, Asphyx, Hellhammer, early Paradise Lost, and of course the almighty Autopsy. But the character embossed by HOODED MENACE was that it became a musical tribute to the classic and cult horror movies in which HOODED MENACE bases its songs around. Movies like Night Of The Living Dead, Manhattan Baby, Night Of The Seagulls, Tombs Of The Blind Dead and Return Of The Evil Dead are a big part of what inspires HOODED MENACE songs to take their form.

PRECAMBRIAN TRIPLE LP

Band:THE OCEAN
Album:PRECAMBRIAN TRIPLE LP
Label:PELAGIC
Format:TRIPLE LP
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

THE OCEAN are an exceptional band, and not just since yesterday. For years the Berlin collective has stood out because of its musical depth, seriousness and high artistic standards. Since their instrumental album “Fogdiver” and the subsequent “Aeolian” it has been clear they are onto something really special in the realm of post-hardcore/noise/ambient music. With “Precambrian”, THE OCEAN have set themselves a monument – from the stunning design by award-winning artist Martin Kvamme, to the double album’s comprehensive concept, to the ambitious music of this behemoth created by 26 participating musicians. Two entirely different CDs bring the listener back to the dawn of Mother Earth. Atmospheric, dense, beautiful – as well as brutal, heavy and destructive. That’s “Precambrian”, the first stage of the Earth’s evolution subdivided into two successive geological eons (“Hadean/Archean” and “Proterozoic”). The songs are divided into 5 subordinate eras, with the song titles carrying the names of subordinate geological periods.

Limited repress of only 500 copies on colored vinyl over 3 LPs! - Special artwork and box packaging with diecut holes in the gatefold and special print colors, designed by Martin Kvamme.

Label:PELAGIC
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

Re-release of the long sold-out 2nd album!

THE OCEAN are an exceptional band, and not just since yesterday. For years the Berlin collective has stood out because of its musical depth, seriousness and high artistic standards. THE OCEAN never ceased to amaze, with their instrumental debut EP “Fogdiver” (2003), followed by “Fluxion” (2004) and “Aeolian” (2005). Since their monumental double-album “Precambrian”, which was released in late 2007 via Metal Blade Records, THE OCEAN are a big name in the international post-hardcore / metal / ambient music scene. “Precambrian” ranked 3rd in German VISIONS magazine's sound check, and was highly acclaimed by critics in Europe and the US: “Fluxion” was originally released in 2004 and has been out of print for more than 3 years. The re-release on THE OCEAN mastermind Robin Staps' newly founded label PELAGIC RECORDS comes with newly recorded vocals, remixed, remastered and with completely new artwork by Martin Kvamme.

 

 

SKY DISK

Band:NEBRA
Album:SKY DISK
Label:PELAGIC
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

Nebra construct the sonic image of a nuclear-powered icebreaker: choking heaviness, relentless brutality and mind-boggling precision set them apart from most of their instrumental peers. Yes, “Sky Disk” is instrumental AND heavy at the same time. A loud, ugly metal album, more than a nice pretty post-something album. Nebra's roots in progressive noise rock soon become obvious in the 5 tracks of their debut EP: members of NEBRA have been, or are still, active in Swiss math/noise legends KNUT (Hydrahead Records), NOSTROMO and MUMAKIL (Relapse Records). The band has supported Gojira. Debut-CD EP of this Swiss all-star-band.

NEBRA are unique with their catchy yet heavy approach to instrumental metal! Ex- & current members of KNUT, MUMAKIL and NOSTROMO - Special digipak-packaging including mini-CD with special print colors. Design by SELDON HUNT (Isis etc).

WEEKEND

Band:THE PHARMACY
Album:WEEKEND
Label:Seayou
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

After 7 months of touring the United States & Europe in 2008, Seattle band The Pharmacy decided to move to New Orleans to write their new album. Recorded in their house over the summer of 2009 near Bayou St. John with a 4-track, used microphone and a cheap reverb pedal the new songs are a raw and liberated departure from the more ornate and produced "Choose Yr. Own Adventure" LP. Songs like "My Business" and "Coldest Morning Light" recall influences of the Shangri-La's and the Zombies, while still retaining the energy and spontaneity of a young and hungry band. This spring and summer they will be making another long round of international touring while they decide where they'll move to next.

 

 

FAVORITE FLAVOUR

Band:HOLIDAY FOR STRINGS
Album:FAVORITE FLAVOUR
Label:Seayou
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

The new album from Holiday for Strings is not easy to describe. The group is influenced by pretty much every style and era of music there is- believe me, I've seen their record collections. The band has a standard five piece line-up: bass player, vocalist, and guitarist, with Pony from THIEVES LIKE US on drums and John Eriksson, from PETER BJORN AND JOHN on piano, guitar and a plethora of percussion. The nine songs on Favorite Flavor are dark and atmospheric without ever being close to depressing or downbeat, there is still romance and lyricism built into every moment of its 47 minutes.

THE BRIGHT SIDE

Album:THE BRIGHT SIDE
Label:ANCHORS AWEIGH
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

On November 18th 2008 Perth band Break Even experienced the unthinkable, when their guitarist Rowan Willoughby took his own life. Rowans untimely death took a toll not only on the members of the band, but with everyone in the hardcore community, leaving a giant question mark over the future of the band. After some time the 4 remaining members, Mark Bawden (Vocals), Stephen Sciutto (Guitar), Perri Basille (Bass) and Simon Dreja (Drums),returned to the rehearsal studio to see if they could go on with what they’d come to know as Break Even. Out of this process came their debut album, The Bright Side. Aptly named, The Bright Side is a story of birth and death and everything in between. Recorded in March at Reading Room Studios in Perth, it is an honest and passionate statement that was written to remember, to inspire and to never forget.

Break Even are touring throughout May In Europe / UK / Scandinavia with DEEZ NUTS / THE GHOST INSIDE and have toured with the likes of Parkway Drive, Have Heart, Ruiner, Carpathian, Polar Bear Club in the past...

Album:KEY TO THE KINGDOM
Label:TRIAXIS RECORDINGS
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

In an age when so many bands come and go as they jump on the latest trend, Triaxis stand out as a bastion for timeless UK Heavy Metal. They know what they love, and they set about writing and performing unashamedly rocking Metal songs that are as hard‐hitting and raw now as they would have been if these guys had been around in the heyday of Metal's chart success. Memorable tunes, delivered with a passion & confidence that only a seasoned group of musicians can possess, have cemented their place at the head of the UK's resurgent Heavy Metal scene.

"A big hit at this year's Bloodstock festival... far too good to languish in selfsufficient obscurity. A confident and charismatic debut... If this lot aren't wowing the European metal hordes within 12 months, there's simply no justice in the world." ‐ Dom Lawson, Metal Hammer

"Brings to mind classic Priest, mid‐era Megadeth and Testament, intricately woven together by a taught melodic thread and commanding – yet skin‐tinglingly soulful – vocals." ‐ Calum Harvie, Zero Tolerance

Seamount is a band that features three extremely talented German Tracklist: guys on the basic instruments (you know the basics) and a restless American vocalist behind the microphone, that is no other than Phil Swanson.

Seamount is a traditional Heavy Doom Metal band from Germany, influenced by the Fathers Of Doom, Pentagram, Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus and Revelation … with a pinch of N.W.O.B.H.M. elements

THE BROTHERSEED LP

Band:ARABROT
Album:THE BROTHERSEED LP
Label:FYSISK FORMAT
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Årabrot is the name of a waste dump right outside the small west-Norwegian town of Haugesund. But most importantly Årabrot is the name of the local institution for troubled youth where three young Haugesunders first met and founded a band that could have only one name; Årabrot. While orthodoxy and predictably has taken its toll on the once so exciting Norwegian Black Metal scene, a quite different breed of metal is establishing itself in the northern outpost of our civilization. At the forefront of a scene boiling with sludgy and industrial metal is Haust, Okkultokrati and Arabrot: a band that are now about to be represent for the young generation what the sum of Melvins, Throbbing Gristle and Swans was to the generation before them. "The Brotherseed" is Årabrots UK-debut and a noise-rock album where frontman and mastermind Kjetil Nernes gives us a peek into the dark moral matters that gnaws through our brain arteries. “The Brotherseed” is produced by Steve Albini and mastered by Bob Weston.

EVE LP

Band:SPEED GLUE and SHINKI
Album:EVE LP
Label:PHOENIX
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Ex-Foodbrain guitarist Shinki Chen, bass player Masayayoshi Kabe (also know as M Glue) and Phillipino Vietnam war veteran Joey ‘Pepe’ Smith, who doubled as both the trio’s drummer and vocalist, released two legendary albums in the early ‘70s. Eve, the earlier of the band’s two efforts, was probably the band’s only “real” recording as the self-titled 2nd release in 1972 was put together by Smith from studio outtakes of Chen’s guitar playing and tracks omitted from Eve. Eve is a bluesy, psychedelic album, with Chen’s Hendrix-style guitar playing firmly underpinned by Smith’s insistent percussion style modelled on the playing of his idol, Ginger Baker. The band dissolved immediately after the release of Eve as the other two members found Smith’s drug-fuelled lifestyle (he was a huge fan of amphetamines and diligently applied himself to establishing a prodigeous habit) decidedly unappealing. Chen decided he didn’t want to record again, and became a successful live artist, Joey went back to the Philippines and started the power trio Juan de la Cruz Band, and Masayoshi Kabe would win fame with the band Pink Cloud. In spite of their short-lived activity, Speed, Glue and Shinki were important, first and foremost as pioneers of the Japanese psychedelic rock scene. First 180g vinyl reissue - Album was joint first in Julian Cope’s Top 50 Japanese album chart!

 

 

KEPT UNDER BY A GENERATION OF GHOSTS

Band:THE AMISTAD
Album:KEPT UNDER BY A GENERATION OF GHOSTS
Label:BOMBED OUT
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

The punk rock sounds of 90's Chicago as filtered through the towns and cities of South Yorkshire... The Amistad have been gigging up and down the UK for the past 2 years and already have two split 7”s under their belt (with Orphan Choir and Above Them). Kept Under by a Generation of Ghosts is their debut album and a belting little album it is too, coming across like Milloy covering The Lawrence Arms after a weekend of listening to Hooton 3 Car and Leatherface. And yes, The Amistad still manage to hold their own despite those lofty comparisons. 10 tracks span the gantlet from fiery, yet melodic, political punk rock to cynical acoustic folk, all the while maintaining the kind of biting satire associated with northern England’s finest bands.

For fans of The Lawrence Arms, Hot Water Music, Leatherface and Jawbreaker!

THE POSITIVES LP

Band:PERSON L
Album:THE POSITIVES LP
Label:SCYLLA
Format:DOUBLE LP
Genre:Alt Rock

The Positives, which was deeply influenced by classic rock, allows the musicians’’ interests and obsessions with artists like Bob Dylan, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield and Sam Cook to shine through their songwriting and playing. “Goodness Gracious” is a raw, static-laced rocker that sounds straight out of the vaults while “The Pleasure Is All Mine” is boisterous and bluesy, a dead ringer for a song from a much earlier decade. Even Vasoli’s voice, as he sings and yelps and howls, is barely recognizable from the croon of his former band.

EASY LISTENING FOR THE UNDERACHEIVER

Band:THE MORLOCKS
Album:EASY LISTENING FOR THE UNDERACHEIVER
Label:GO DOWN
Format:CD
Genre:Garage Punk

There are records that represent a remarkable event, and so is “Easy Listening for the Underachiever”, the return of one of the most relevant bands from the 80s garage renaissance: the Morlocks. Founded by charismatic member Leighton Koizumi soon after splitting up his previous band Gravedigger V (from which “All Black & Hairy” is still a cult for the fans), the californian band played only a couple of seasons. The promise to reunite the Morlocks became true: now they are back with a new line-up and the result is “Easy Listening for the Underachiever”, the ultimate declaration of love to garage-punk, an album out of time and out of compromise. The perfect combination of garage-punk, not giving a damn of theories of evolution of rock’n roll! This is “blood, sweat and tears”, just take it or leave it!

 

 

VAGINA MOTHER

Band:THE STRANGE FLOWERS
Album:VAGINA MOTHER
Label:GO DOWN
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

Vagina Mother, produced by Federico Guglielmi for Go Down Records, is the highest point of a carrier during which The Strange Flowers have been regarded as one of the major acts of the independent scene. The Strange Flowers have always had a peculiar approach to psychedelic rock, far away from revivalist clichés, an attitude that once again is found in the 12 tracks of Vagina Mother, where the collaboration with Federico Guglielmi finally completes the modernization process that had begun with Aeroplanes In The Backyard. Vagina Mother can be considered a contemporary record from the beginning to the end, where the maturity and freshness of songwriting, the intelligence and modernity of the arrangements, the rigorous choice of analog sounds, not to mention a solid studio performance, make a peace of very high artistic value. Vagina Mother is complete and various, absolutely convincing. It surprises you in every single episode, stating loud and clear that The Strange Flowers are one of the most valuable acts of independent rock today. A jewel you cannot miss!

 

 

THE DEAD TREE BLUES

Band:POISON DELUXE
Album:THE DEAD TREE BLUES
Label:GO DOWN
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

It may seem easy and obvious to sum up the Poison Deluxe experience as a possible contamination of The Doors’ sound ("P. Skunk" is supposed to be a blues track written by Manzarek as a divertisement) and the harmonic structure of nearly every enterprise by Josh Homme. In “The dead tree blues” for instance, beside the above mentioned big blonde bloke, you would expect that genious Jack White to pop up, since the many-faceted matter of blues is tackled according to his accomplished style of guitar playing. All of this makes pretty good reference for a project moving its first, if not shy, steps. Possibly the best bit is to be found in the good taste displayed by Max Ear (here meeting his former Ojm band mate Frank Puglie on the guitar) in rearranging his boogie to defy the patterns of the main firm. This is exactly what you would expect from a side project: complete freedom in the development of songs (as well proved in the track appropriately titled “A free demonstration”). That’s why, beside the mentioned names, such an album would have profited from the contribution of the early Beck: tracks such as "When I'm down he comes down", "Vortex blues", "Old memories” and "Ocioidei" remind one of the experiments of mr. Hansen at least up tp "Mellow gold". The perfect sound to score with a girl… :-)

Album:MADNESS OF WAR
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Overmaster was founded in 2006 by singer "Gus" Gustavo Adrian Gabarro, after six years and four albums with the Italian power metal band White Skull. After recording a 4-track demo tape (which was elected as demo of the month on Italian printed magazine Metal Maniac), Overmaster reached an agreement with Cruz Del Sur Music for the release of its first album “Madness of War”. The idea behind “Madness of War” and its 11 tracks, is to illustrate the horrors of war and its different faces through the centuries, from the Ancient Greece era, to the modern Malvinas/Falklands war and the young suicide children in Middle East. Over this sad topics, Gus and Overmaster were able to create a dramatic and emotional atmosphere, where the description of the “madness of war” is expressed through a galloping and unrelenting drumming/bass lines, a textured guitar work, atmospheric keyboards and the expressive voice of Gus. Every piece then fall in the right place, creating an album that musically at first sight might seems inspired by the Teutonic heavy metal school, but maintains a clear and self-identity thanks to the layered and multifaceted work of each and every one of his interpreters.

BLUE NOTE RIDGE

Band:ROGER POWELL
Album:BLUE NOTE RIDGE
Label:UNICORN DIGITAL
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Out of the blue — Blue Note Ridge, rather — Utopia keyboardist Roger Powell has published another album of original music, though this affair was not cultivated with his arsenal of synthesizers. Perhaps a cue taken from the closing piano piece on Fossil Poets called "Astrae," this is a full serving of impressions on acoustic piano whose mission statement is evident by way of track titles like "Path To The River," "Green Shift," "Shadow Of Pines," and "Valley Fog." Many of the pieces in the first half have nary a seam and almost sound broken into segments from a longer, expansive improvisational suite. The rippling chords and delicate shadings parallel a couple all-piano ventures by ambient icons Harold Budd and Robert Rich. However, Powell isn't concerned with letting each tone ring out into horizontal space; his style, as expected, is much more dynamic and melodic, in line with the styles of, say, Windham Hill's Liz Story and American Gramaphone's Jackson Berkey. A crisp portrait of a special rural haven is realized over the duration of this very focused work, under forty minutes in length — an intriguing new side of Roger Powell.

Band:EL CAMINO
Album:SATANIK MAGIIK CD
Label:NIGH TRIPPER
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

The Swedish band el Camino has since the beginning back in the winter of 2002/03 been a tool for the expression of both music and thoughts. The music has always been the primary with a call to compose heavy music that isn’t limited by either genres or other unwritten laws. The shaping of el Camino consists of cultural, musical, occult and historical elements ”- the way is so to say, winding, as above so below while we create” With the ambition to create their own musical form el Camino drew up the guidelines right from the start. The result could be heard as a form of rockmusic with strength and elements of both hardrock and doom.
