LIVE AT ROABURN 2011 - LP

Band:WHITE HILLS
Album:LIVE AT ROABURN 2011 - LP
Label:ROADBURN
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

White Hills are an ever changing entity always striving to push the envelope. Their music weaves in and out of anthemic chants, deep space bleeps and other worldly madness for a mix that proves to be intoxicating. Since the release of the band’s debut album, listeners have been praising their originality and unique brand of heavy space rock.

"[White Hills is] one of the years gnarliest psych slabs – a schizophrenic trip through Acid Mothers Temple riff bludgeon, Boris chug, shaggy pseudo‐grunge, and tender bursts of formless noise." – Village Voice

 "A perfect space‐rock storm of drone, mind‐melting psychedelia, overdriven guitars and heavy bass, White Hills is the rightful heir to Hawkwind's massive legacy." – Goldmine •

Recorded live at this years Roadburn Festival • Superb live set .- LIMITED EDITION VINYL

 

 

MONNOS

Band:CONAN
Album:MONNOS
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Conan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. A three piece, in the grand tradition of many amazing fabulous three pieces that hold a tight line and an iron-grip command over the uber-synchronised chord changes and tempo-shifts of the holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two men have the task of vocalising wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan. They bear it well, for the task is immense. Conan have committed their filthy, ocean-sized sound to wax (and the slightly less cvlt compact disc) twice thus farwith more fetid output always on the horizon. First came the hulking mass of debut album Horseback Battle Hammer (Throne, Aurora Borealis), followed by a split with like-minded sludge-lords, Slomatics (Head of Crom, Burning World). In December 2011 Conan returned to the remote wilderness of Foel Studio, Wales and into the capable hands of producer Chris Fielding for their next album which is to be released on Burning World Records in Spring 2012.

LIVE AT ROADBURN - 2010

Band:YOB
Album:LIVE AT ROADBURN - 2010
Label:ROADBURN
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Yob might be one of the best bands in North America,” declared Ben Ratliff in a feature New York Times article in March of 2010 that can be best described as gushing. The Eugene, OR-based doom metal trio has seen similar praise worldwide, with a growing host of fans citing the band as one of the most profound and accomplished doom metal phenomena of the 21st century. Live at Roadburn captures the band on their first European tour on which they played the prestigious Roadburn Festival in Tilburg twice. This audio and video document captures the band in prime form in front of a raving audience. Probably one of their best gigs ever.

This is the last installment in the Live at Roadburn series on Roadburn Records in which earlier sets from Wolves In The Throne Room, Church Of Misery, Neurosis and Wino have seen the light of day.

YEAR OF THE BURIAL

Band:TOMBSTONES
Album:YEAR OF THE BURIAL
Label:SOULSELLER
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Tombstones is a band from the deep woods of eastern Norway who play suggestive, downtuned and dark doom, with some psych-elements. Tombstones have been playing together for about since 2007..only since 2009 years as a three-piece, since their guitarist tragically died that year. Tombstones have done two records with the legend Billy Anderson (known for working with bands such as Sleep, Electric Wizard etc)..and the latter; "Volume II" was released late 2010 by the Swedish label Transubstans Records. "Volume II" was very well received, and gave the band some good attention, and brought them the opportunity to play outside of Scandinavia. With the arrival of their third album, “Year of the burial”, consisting of 6 belly-hitting songs of heaviness, the band sees themselves playing a European tour in September as well as a slot on the “Death doomed the age fest” in Germany. Tombstones are here to conquer and dominate, for years to come!

A BROKEN STATE OF BLISS

Band:THE MERCY HOUSE
Album:A BROKEN STATE OF BLISS
Label:TMH
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Described by Kerrang! Radio’s Alex Baker as a band possessing, “killer riffs, monstrous vocals and more hooks than a slaughterhouse”, London’s powerhouse heavy-rock innovators THE MERCY HOUSE are now poised to strike at the heart of the rock scene with an iron fist.

Carefully crafted during much of last year at London based Death Dojo studios with production team The Picasso Brothers, their imminent debut album A BROKEN STATE OF BLISS was mixed by Donald Clark (Korn, Muse) and mastered by Mandy Parnell (Depeche Mode, Prodigy, Björk). A trend and scene defying record, it possesses a dark, gritty and visceral post-apocalyptic quality that pioneers what is quickly being labelled as the “black grunge” sound. It features their anthemic, shotgun-blast-to-the-face first single ‘Greed’, a song that Kerrang! Magazine’s Simon Young described as “dripping with menace”.

For fans of Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Tool, Korn...

A successful way until today. "Quasar" appeared on the legendary Hamburg label Sky Records by Günter Körber, that fit! On this first release on CD, a bonus track is included, containing excerpts from the soundtracks of Stephan Kaske and was edited into a collage. A listening pleasure!

Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

These are each title of a four album tribute series to the late singer/songwriter, Blaze Foley. This was a project started in 1990 by a few of his friends who wanted to pay tribute to Blaze by cataloging some of his song. His friends, admirers and fellow musicians were asked if they had a favorite Blaze song that they would like to record in his memory. Originally the project was only going to be one album but quickly mushroomed with many, many people wanting to become a part of it in some way. Immediately the producers of the project realized it would be more than one album. The tribute project was also the inspiration for a documentary on Blaze Foley.

SUSPENSION

Band:BEE AND FLOWER
Album:SUSPENSION
Label:CHEAP SATANISM
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

Bee and Flower was founded in 2000 in New York by singer/songwriter/bassist Dana Schechter; “Suspension” is their third album. I "Suspension" has echoes of the two previous records of the band: it plays in the balance between the brooding debut "What's Mine Is Yours" (Neurot Recordings) and the heavily symphonic nature of “Last Sight of Land” (Tuition). The writing has a renewed focus and determination as they play with chiaroscuro, mixing harsh light with haunting obscurity. As for Dana Schechter's subtle, smoky voice, it manages to avoid all the genre's traps and it offers a delicate bitter-sweet taste. More than ever, Bee and Flower succeeds in bringing light to the darkness.

For fans of Low, Black Heart Procession, Shannon Wright, Tindersticks, Mazzy Star, Elysian Fields

 There is a long list of prestigious special guest members and contributors on this record. Recorded by Martin Bisi in New York (The Dresden Dolls, Swans, Sonic Youth) and Ingo Krauss in Berlin (Crime & the City Solution, Tindersticks...), the “Suspension” features Martin Wenk (Calexico), Toby Dammit, Paul Watson (Sparklehorse), J.G. Thirlwell (Kronos Quartet, Foetus) to name but a few.

FLANKED BY WOMEN AND PUMPKINS

Band:PAS
Album:FLANKED BY WOMEN AND PUMPKINS
Label:ALREALON MUSIQUE
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

PAS are back with a new full length CD, 'Flanked By Woman and Pumpkins' (ALRN031). These 12 new, textured and experimental audio collages were developed during the year 2011 and are now finalized in CD form. 'Flanked By Women and Pumpkins' (ALRN031) was formed and influenced by PAS's April/May 2011 tour, which included their performances at the CoCArt Music Festival in Torun, Poland. Taking a more personal approach, field recordings (the sound of school children and animals) are now more frequent in this release. These recordings, act as an additive texture, enhancing a variety of multilayered and electroacoustic sounds. Adding to this engulfing, aural journey, 'Flanked By Women and Pumpkins' (ALRN031) includes a spur of the moment improv jam with Philippe Petit (recorded at HATI’s studio in Poland) as well as a collaborative track titled 'Volker Goes to Spain' with EHEIM 1000.220.

 

 

MANITOU

Band:BLUE SAUSAGE INFANT
Album:MANITOU
Label:ALREALON MUSIQUE
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

Following the long-form kosmische excursions of 2011’s 'Negative Space', Blue Sausage Infant’s new CD recalls the ruthless energy and shorter attention span of BSI’s cassettes from the 1980s. 'Manitou' is a wild ride: a patchwork of huge analog drones, mutant caffeinated space-punk, musique concrete, krautrock-style jams, distorted industrial stomp, and deep electronic mind candy. This collection includes a new remake of the classic BSI track 'The Moss Takes Over' which first appeared in the 1990 cassette “Infinite Sky.” Guest musicians include members of Insect Factory, Pilesar, Violet, Tag Cloud, and Timmy Sells His Soul. The result is an hour-long celebration of reckless improvisation and joyful nightmares.

 

 

HELIOPAUSE

Band:GUSTAF HILDEBRAND
Album:HELIOPAUSE
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

Finally we are graced with brand new material from Sweden's Gustaf Hildebrand, a few years after the epic Primordial Resonance album and his joint project with Amanda Votta, Lacus Somniorum. The Heliopause, the point outside our solar system where the solar wind ceases to be, transitioning into what is known as the Interstellar Medium and where our sun becomes just another pinprick of light amongst a billion others. If you were to find yourself stranded in such a place with nothing but a radio receiver, Gustaf Hildebrand imagines that this is what you would hear, low rumbling soundscapes interspersed with bursts of static, com-chatter and signal interceptions from a distant world. Vestiges of humanity bubble up from the ether, speaking encoded messages in the form of numerical combinations and long-forgotten cyphers, their true meanings lost or hidden away inside the memory banks of decommissioned satellites. This new chapter in Hildebrand’s discography reaffirm’s his position as a true visionary and unique craftsman of exploratory sonorities. Edition of 800 copies in 6 panel digipack. 9 Tracks. Running Time 52:23

 

 

THE APPARITION

Band:THE FLOATING WORLD
Album:THE APPARITION
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

The Floating World is the solo project of Amanda Votta. Begun in 2005, three albums have been released so far; Full Sturgeon Moon (Hand/Eye 2005), Unda (Barl Fire 2005) and River of Flowers (Foxglove 2006), appearing as well on a few compilations. Amanda has also collaborated with Gustaf Hildebrand in Lacus Somniorum, as well as with Far Black Furlong and New Risen Throne. She also has a band, Secrets to the Sea, with Neddal Ayad from Desolation Singers. The Apparition is Amanda Votta’s attempt to capture that moment when things are other than what they appear to be, when a sound is not just a sound, a voice not just a voice. The liminality of certain places, things, sounds, people, experiences—apparitions in their own right as they are neither here nor there—serves as inspiration for our endeavor to reach for that which we cannot see. Just as it was the sound of Iokanaan’s voice that transfixed Salome—the sound and the words—we have blended sound and words to mimic that experience. The Apparition takes its name from the painting by Gustav Moreau depicting the apparition of Iokanaan appearing before Salome—a vision only she sees, that exists in a space between that which we see and that which cannot be seen. On this album Amanda is joined by Neddal Ayad (Desolation Singers/Great Attractor), Timothy Renner (Stone Breath) and Nicole Votta. Drifting, minimalistic ambiances are overlaid by The Floating World's signature flutes, combining to weave soundscapes that are as dreamlike as they are melancholic. Edition of 600 copies in 6 panel digipack. 7 Tracks. Running Time 43:01

 

 

OUT OF THE DARKLING LIGHT

Band:PETER BJARGO AND GUSTAF HILDEBRAND
Album:OUT OF THE DARKLING LIGHT
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

Previously released in 2006 as a strictly limited edition on Bjärgö’s own label, Erebus Odora, “Out Of The Darkling Light, Into The Bright Shadow” now receives a worthy re-release treatment. Peter Bjärgö and Gustaf Hildebrand collaborate on an album that marks a significant departure in style for both parties. Abstract electronic beats and rhythms collide with occultism and brooding ambiances to conjure up images of secret societies, locked away in candle lit chambers below street level, performing rituals the outside world is blissfully unaware of. A unique fusion of ambient, ritual and electronic elements, it offers a glimpse into a world just out of reach, a world where the state religion was penned by Aleister Crowley and where esoteric symbols have the power to influence both mind and body. Features a previously unreleased bonus track. Edition of 600 copies in 4 panel digipack. 10 Tracks. Running Time 53:31

Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Bullfrog always were fancy to hop over the big blue pond. Thus the band never was willing to get in line with the hip trend of singing German lyrics. They remain consequent which was proven by success: German TV executives listened attentively with the result that the musicians found themselves on the stage of the Dortmunder Westfalenhalle - Live recording as one of the first German bands for WDR-ROCKPALAST which still is a fix tv-part and a hallmark with cult status. Also international the first signs of acceptance: »The wildest Cats of Germany« was written in an article of the legendary army-mag „Stars and Stripes“, after the band obviously delivered a convincing concert in a German-American club. Also the US-station AFN sent a huge interview with introducing their vinyl. Tom Conners, manager of the (at that time) successful band MITCH RYDER named BULLFROG as one of the less German bands which might have a breakthrough in the USA. Upon the good connections to the US music scene Bullfrog got a second singer from Chicago. Timothy „Tim“ Gainer with his multifaceted and clear singing a real counterpoint to the raspy voice of the leader Gerd Hoch. Singing together they are not available on any vinyl but, after about three decades, for the first time on this cd.

Lake of Blood hail from the battered streets of southern Los Angeles. Formed in 2007, and with a handful of solid, well-received releases under their belts, this strong-minded quintet have been spreading their blackened gospel far and wide and reaping that which they have sown. Their stellar debut, the Heed the Primal Calling EP, caught the ears of many, and led to a split with PANOPTICON’s A. Lundr in 2009. Word travelled, and an ensuing agreement was made with the UK’s Human Jigsaw Records to release the band’s next offering, a two-song behemoth entitled As Time and Tide Erodes Stone in early 2011. Heavily atmospheric, viciously intense, and dedicated to the bone, this feral entity's aggressive, dissonant take on black metal weaves together the genre's puritanical roots with elements of doom, thrash, folk, and startling moments of clarity. _e two tracks contained within As Time and Tide Erodes Stone are epic in far more than length; these songs are sagas, odes to a dying world and an uncertain future. After the album’s release, the band hit the road with blood brothers VESTIGES, and press accolades filtered in. Soon enough, fellow California nightmares The Flenser recognized the burning potential within Lake of Blood’s sprawling compositions, and signed on to reissue the album on limited vinyl. Born of smog but with eyes turned towards the great unknown, Lake of Blood are poised to overtake the soulless hordes of imitators and make a fatally deep impression upon that which is American black metal.

 

 

LAMENT

Band:OBOLUS
Album:LAMENT
Label:FLENSER
Format:10" VINYL
Genre:Black Metal

There is a reason the virgin offering from Obolus popped up on so very many “best of 2011” lists last year. The willfully anonymous North American band’s two-song demo immediately captivated and enthralled all who were lucky enough to stumble across its startlingly mature take on bleak, obscure atmospheric black metal. The follow up, the 10” ‘Lament’ EP, is a triumph in the making; raw and beautiful, harrowing and heartfelt, and wretchedly, brutally lightless. Five tracks of misanthropic, ritualized black metal art, tempered with a fiendish array of shimmering lines of melody and swaths of pulsating ambiance, ‘Lament’ will be laid to rest in vinyl by The Flenser just ahead of the Vernal Equinox. The 10” album will be rent into 500 pieces - 100 on grey and black alternate sides, 400 on solid black - and features a heavy jacket with black art on the outside and a flood of black on the inside, with a black inner sleeve and blacked-out insert. The stunning artwork comes courtesy of Natvres Mortes Illvstration, and provides a perfect companion to the aural atrocities that lurk within. Obolus are one of the most exciting new bands in the American black metal realm, devoid of pretension or pandering and devoted to the ways of old, when nothing but the strength of will and power of the riff mattered, and the music spoke, loudly, for itself. ‘Lament’ contains multitudes, and speaks with the thunderous voice of a thousand falling angels.

NODRAMA started to write songs and to improve older tracks and decided to do some shows to present the band in members' city and around. After a good reaction from a lot of people, NODRAMA recorded 3 songs to spread some copies, the response was very positive. That situation motivated the band to start recording a self-produced demo in its rehearsal room. NODRAMA reached a good sounding work of 10 tracks to offer an attractive demo entitled "I Mind". This demo has been edited in April 2008 and received a great response from both people and press, getting really great reviews in the most important webzines and magazines dedicated to rock music from Spain. All these experiences gave the chance of having better shows, such as playing big acts with artists like Whitesnake, Cynic and important bands from the Basque and Spanish scene and let NODRAMA improving the way of playing live and finding more and more comfortable together. After doing a last show promoting "I Mind" in its city, with a great answer and support from a lot of people, the band focused in the writing process for new songs that will compose the first album. A new chance to grow as a band and songwriters, really focused on the idea of improving the songs quality from the "I Mind" demo and involving everything they want to show in their songs: anger, melody, catchy choruses and direct lyrics, but always having the idea of making an easy to listen music. The band finds a sound that´s still fresh and original but also familiar for anyone who listens, who will find lots of different ways of understanding music in the NODRAMA songs.

It is heavy, it rocks, we have no keyboard meanderings. Just straight forward hard rock and metal!
