BRUTAL AFRICA - THE HEAVY METAL COWBOYS OF BOTSWANA

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:BRUTAL AFRICA - THE HEAVY METAL COWBOYS OF BOTSWANA
Label:SVART
Format:LP
Genre:AFRICAN METAL

Svart Records, together with the makers of the documentary Freedom in the Dark, proudly bring African Metal to the west! Botswana in Southern Africa is a country roughly the size of France, with Kalahari Desert taking up half of its surface area. The country is perhaps more famous for Bushmen or the diamonds found there in the 1960s than its music. It might be hard to believe that the country has a very lively and unique rock scene. Rock culture in Botswana is distinctive in many ways; the passion for playing music is more important than unnecessary technical prowess. The rockers also dress in very imaginative ways, and their clothing ranges from metal uniforms, leather and rivet wings to different kinds of masks. These aspects together make the scene in Botswana one of the most interesting in the world today. The songs on this compilation were gathered during the making of the documentary film Freedom in the Dark between 2014 and 2017. As of writing this in 2018 there is roughly ten active bands in Botswana and more or less same number of bands that have called it quits. Due to the fact that it has been and still is difficult to record music, especially rock, in Botswana, many bands haven t been able to record their music at all. This compilation has been culled from what has been possible to produce on record.

Album:WIZARD RIFLE
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:SLUDGE/METAL

Wizard Rifle emerged from the metal groundswell of Portland Oregon in 2009 bent on annihilating the complacency of genre pigeonholes and throwback tropes. Their elusive sound contorts and leaps from sludgy and psychedelic, to thrash, noise and beyond, accented by vocal harmonies and shouts. On first listen, many scoff at the possibility that such a cacophony could be produced by just two band members, but seeing is believing the force that is Wizard Rifle, and skeptics become Kool-Aid guzzling disciples before the altar. Are you next? Teaming with Nanotear Booking, Guitarist/Vocalist Max Dameron and Drummer/Vocalist Sam Ford have delivered frenzied live shows extensively across the US and Canada including appearances at SXSW, Psycho Las Vegas, Sabertooth, Hopscotch, Crucial Fest, and Musicfest NW. They have shared bills with the likes of The Melvins, High On Fire, YOB, Lightning Bolt, Nick Turner s Hawkwind, Danava, and SubRosa, and hit the road with Bongzilla, Buzzov*en, Black Cobra and Church of Misery to name a few. Their two full length releases, 2014 s Here in the Deadlights and 2012 s Speak Loud Say Nothing have drawn great praise and kept critics and fans on their toes. Their upcoming self-titled LP, due out this summer via Svart, pushes the boundaries even further with the aid of metal mix guru Billy Anderson at the helm of the studio. Do not miss them as they sweep the country this fall, or your friends will never let you forget that you royally f====d up

Alain Pire Experience, THEE Neo-Psychedelic band from Belgium, has just released its most ambitious album so far.

For too long Gothenburg has been considered the capital of space rock. Now that this band has entered the frame the cosmic tables will be turned. Rymdstyrelsen comes from Stockholm (some 1235 kilometers south of Esrange Space Center) and will introduce listeners anywhere in the galaxy to the sound of space rock 2.0. "I used to listen to Hawkwind a lot. Space rock is a genre that has always appealed to me, although there are very few true purveyors of this certain kind of music. After hearing Rymdstyrelsen I was flabbergasted. Finally a worthy successor to the Brock/Kilmister/Turner/House/King/Dettmar lineup has been unearthed!" ~Daniel Ekeroth, author of 'Swedish Death Metal'.

ORIGINALS VOL.2 (1969)

Band:INDEX
Album:ORIGINALS VOL.2 (1969)
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP
Genre:Rock

In February of 2009, Jim Valice of Index discovered three reels in a cardboard box stuffed in a closet of his parents home in Michigan. These songs from 1969 were on those reels. Fourteen original compositions by Index, seven making their vinyl debut, the other seven released for the first time ever, all transferred from the original tapes! Index was once again a pure power trio by 1969. There was massive demand for Index personal performances. Index was not interested. It was becoming more difficult for guitarist John Ford to travel back from Yale University to Detroit on a weekly basis. Index wanted to push the bounds of their own creativity. They chose to use their limited time together to write and record. Index were the epitome of a DIY band. They made great use of the newly developed sound on sound (SOS) technology. It allowed Index to record basic tracks (guitars, drums and lead vocals); with SOS they then could add keyboards, additional guitar tracks and vocals. A musical revolution in miniature! The addition of Tom Ballew on bass in 1968 made a positive impact on Index's sound. He and drummer Jim Valice laid down a musical foundation in and around which John would weave his guitar. 'Livin' In Detroit' and 'Kick It Out' are two perfect examples of that dynamic. Here you'll also find over-the-top psychedelic numbers like 'Street Crime' and the fast version of 'Yesterday and Today.' But on this album you'll also find mature romantic ballads filled with angst, such as 'Love is Here To Stay' and 'I Walk Alone.' The hip-shaking, organ-driven '432 Lakeshore' highlights another groovier aspect to Index's sound. The music of Index has been lauded by music heads for decades with good reason: the band has a druggie sound, with songs full of feedback and fuzzy guitars, hazy guitar riffs and loud pushy rhythms. It's wonderful, droning, murky and introspective: the atonal side of late 1960's rock that would leave the most lasting impression on those who would eventually become punk, post-punk and indie rock... artists like Joy Division or the Fall or Felt to name three out of a thousand. Or in the case of the previously unreleased song 'Something Sweet,' The Jesus & Mary Chain. It's as if Index projected their sound through time and space, creating sonic templates for future artists. Index continues to inspire bands all over the world even to this day. Listen to Index and feed your soul.

THRONE BEHIND A BLACK VEIL

Band:TOTAL HATE
Album:THRONE BEHIND A BLACK VEIL
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Throne Behind A Black Veil sees the German band once again en route to present the ferocious and cold sound of painkilling black metal altitudes of the 1990s. Much like previous outputs, TOTAL HATE - - known for its luminaries and zealots in the sphere of ancient black metal -- continues the path set forth by bands such as Darkthrone, Urgehal, Gorgoroth, Throne of Ahaz and others. Mixed with longtime producer A. Naucke, the album's mastering was once again executed by Patrick W. Engel of Temple of Disharmony. Hailing from the Bavarian woods of Germany, TOTAL HATE unifies the essence of Scandinavia's true black metal sound. Emerging as a side project of sorts in 2000, the band pays homage to the second wave of black metal with its original blend of orthodox and primitive blackened frost. Throne Behind A Black Veil marks 19 years of existence for the band, and proves some things do get better with age. Crushing black metal treasures that stretch away into the Night Sky of 2019 TRACKLIST 1.Psychopath view 2.Decline Of Human Life - Part II 3.Thou Shalt Kill (Killing Spree Unleashed) 4.Raven Wings & Witchcraft Spells 5.His Throne Behind A Black Veil 6.Death Raid Apocalypse 7.Lunatic Beast 8.Venomed Seed

TOTBRINGAERE

Band:UNGFELL
Album:TOTBRINGAERE
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CDD
Genre:BLACK METAL/WITCHCRAFT METAL

Durch die Nacht das Unheil schreitet von Dämonen, Hexen, Pest begleitet" Originally composed in 2016 by Menetekel, Ungfell's debut album, "Totbringaere", brought forth the most hideous pestilence in the form of frenetic riff work and melodies of medieval death. The album chronicles an anthology of horror, filth and sinister witchcraft from a time that may seem foreign to modern man, making the work all the more immersive. This version of the Album has been remastered for additional formats, without altering the raw sound of the original recordings and thus retaining their pure character. Recorded in Turicum 2015/16. Das Hexenmal was composed during 2016 and recorded in 2018, session drums performed by Vâlant. All recordings were made in Meister Tekel s basement and in the infamous H.U.C. Crypt. Thanks to K., F., S. Mastered by Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios. Visual ennoblement enchanted by Menetekel, Tryfar, and Valkenstijn.

The 'Grå Hest' single is the harbinger of the next Osi and the Jupiter album 'Nordlige Rúnaskog', which is set for a release in autumn 2019. Resounding here is the self‐titled album track on side A, that combines the ritualistic echo of ancient lore within a profound pagan‐folk ambiance. The song narrates a part of the Völsunga saga, where Siegfried meets up with Odin disguised as a grey‐bearded old man, and how Grani, the most beautiful steed and offspring of Sleipnir, became Siegfried’s horse. Side B reveals the exclusive track 'Autumn', a tranquil, piano synth piece leading the way out of this first preview into the world of the upcoming Osi and the Jupiter record.

Using a stripped back approach and forging new sonic territories, Temples also serves as an hymn to lost civilisations, and a gratitude for what can still be found and discovered from our predecessors. As societies fall, most of their temples and shrines seem to remain, perhaps, as a reflection of the materiality of spirit. Edition of 500 copies on 4 panel Digisleeve. Matt Lamination. 7 Tracks. Running Time 45:48

LEGENDS

Band:ETHEREAL RIFFIAN
Album:LEGENDS
Label:Robustfellow Prods.
Format:CD
Genre:ROCK/PROG

“Legends,” leaves behind the ritualism that pervaded the four longform tracks of Aeonian in favor of a more direct, grunge-influenced style. Their sense of melody still holds sway, but “Legends” works in a context of hooks that’s new for Ethereal Riffian. More riffian than ethereal, if you will.”

Both were born in Riga, Latvia, as was ZeMe, however, it was polished and presented in Japan in 2015 and 2016 while both artists where touring and learning the art of observation. Their melodies come from their heritage of Latvian roots music in combination with cuttingedge technologies and the competition between free improvisation and live looping.

NARCISSUS RISING (A METAMORPHOSIS IN THREE ACTS)

Band:NEGATIVE BIAS, THE
Album:NARCISSUS RISING (A METAMORPHOSIS IN THREE ACTS)
Label:ATMF
Format:CDD
Genre:ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL

After the acclaimed debut, THE NEGATIVE BIAS are ready to introduce the listeners to a deeper understanding of their unique musical vision, one that transcends the common idea of music as a mere sum of instruments dealing with melodies and patterns. “Narcissus Rising” has a visionary and majestic inspiration that prominently flows though the strings and the synth lines. The evocative force of this new chapter is an exciting merging of 90’s Black Metal echoes and a genuine atmospheric attitude dealing with the dark side of the cosmos, where extreme vibrations are channeled into a vast world of emotions. Someone may recall Limbonic Art’s early works, but the Wagnerian orchestral symbiosis takes distance from this immanent parallelism by crossing the genres’ borders and propitiating the co-existence of ambient and soundtrack-inspired layers.

 

 

DE OCCULTA PHILOSOPHIA

Band:BLOOD OF KINGU
Album:DE OCCULTA PHILOSOPHIA
Label:ATMF
Format:CDD
Genre:ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL

Roman Saenko. The Ukranian multi instrumentalist known predominantly for his folky atmospheric black metal project DRUDKH, HATE FOREST, DARK AGES shaped a project that will stay in the history of experimental Black Metal. ATMF is proud to repress a classic for the underground dealers. This album sets a mark to the Black metal scene spiritual evolution. "Be transported to another place and time, entering a different mindset, embracing an era alien to the dysfunctional defects of modern consumerist materialism. So potent are the spiritual, ritualistic mantras presented on "De Occulta Philosophia" that they escort us (back) – entranced, enraptured, spellbound – to an altered state, unveiling a new yet ancient dimension of Black Metal. So powerful the calls to nature; so dark these entreaties to the elements; so dissonant the summoning of primitivism. Spells resonate like tattoos across the consciousness, transmitting a trance-like transcendence. An inner peace. A stillness. An acceptance. Shamanistic chants, druidic drones, tribal tapping and ancient atmospheres merge together, raw and rhythmic, bleak and blissful. An atmosphere so dense, you can touch it." As far as the artwork Strictly fitting to the original version this cult edition will further endorse the nostalgic attitude, with a quality 6 panels Digipak.

 

 

BATTLEZONE

Band:LIGHTFORCE
Album:BATTLEZONE
Label:SOUNDMASS
Format:10
Genre:HEAVY/POWER METAL

Soundmass are happy to announce their VINYL re-issue of the LIGHTFORCE album Battlezone. This release was their independent 1987 cassette-only debut, never officially released in full on CD, let alone vinyl. You would be lucky to ever find a copy of the original cassette and the original version of “Fast Lane” was left off their 1986 To 1989 compilation. 32 years on, Battlezone is being made readily available again on 10” vinyl and CD, remastered for a superior heavy/power metal experience. Everybody knows Lightforce as the predecessor to Mortification, the Australian death/thrash band fronted by Lightforce bassist Steve Rowe. However, Lightforce was a totally different beast, with their music completely rooted in traditional heavy metal. They were heavily influenced by the classic early 80’s metal of bands like Judas Priest, Manowar and especially Iron Maiden – the abundant melody and hooks a homage to the bands that inspired them, while still putting their own spin on the style. And the band didn’t go unnoticed either, picking up management and a deal with US label Pure Metal to release their follow-up Mystical Thieves.

Finnish Black Metal band Aethyrick does not venture into where no man has gone before, but rather comes from a place the modern mind has almost entirely forgotten. In temples under trees, by the light of the sacred stars, where the winds sing their songs… There lies the adytum built not by mortal hand, there dances the flame eternal. And the warmth of that divine fire gave birth to Aethyrick’s first full-length album “Praxis”.

FEAR THE ONE…THAT KILLS THE SOUL

Band:DIE MY DEMON
Album:FEAR THE ONE…THAT KILLS THE SOUL
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:CD
Genre:HARDCORE

Die My Demon is a 90's East Coast style hardcore band from Dendermonde/Gent, Belgium; who started out as a side-project of DMD's 4-piece Sad Origin back in 1999. After recording a first demo and some local shows the band was put on hold. Some later in 2001 they picked up the gloves for what turned out to be a hell of a ride. Releasing an EP “Love The Game - Hate The Players”, a split EP with 50 Caliber and a re-release of all the earlier work “Still Lovin’ The Game” on Filled With Hate Records made them play countless crazy shows throughout Europe. In 2004 they signed to Genet Records for their only full length to date, “Smell The Rat”. Unfortunately, due to work, family and some internal struggles, the band called it quits, playing their last show in their hometown the 18th of March 2006. In 2008 a couple of successful reunion shows were done, playing great fests in Belgium & Germany with an extended line-up including several past & present members: Wes, Christophe, Wim, Ali, Hans, Serge and supported by Jochen (Crawlspace/Full Court Press) on guitar.

 

 

WHERE THE LIGHT ENDS

Band:KEITZER
Album:WHERE THE LIGHT ENDS
Label:FDA RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

While it is not entirely wrong to still name Keitzer “the German Misery Index”, the band has ultimately established its very own niche with its latest effort. “Where the Light Ends” sees the quintet effortlessly blasting a way through death metal, hardcore and crust that rips your head off as rigorously as Christian Silva Chaco has expressed himself in his lyrics. Thus, the group’s proverbial magnificent seventh is an emotionally engaging affair throughout. Traditionally straight and fast passages get combined with a certain melodicism that points towards early 90s Scandinavia, yet Keitzer not once lose any of the gall that made them the force of nature they are on stage. No wonder this newfound finesse makes for some of the most catchy tracks in their whole catalogue.
