LIVE AT ROADBURN 2013 LP...

Band:MY BROTHER THE WIND
Album:LIVE AT ROADBURN 2013 LP...
Label:ROADBURN
Format:2LP / CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Led by Anekdoten‘s Nicklas Barker, the chemistry between Barker, Mathias Danielsson (guitars), Ronny Eriksson (bass) and Tomas Eriksson (drums) is really something special, as captured on their latest album, I Wash My Soul in the Stream of Infinity , recorded in only 4 hours during a cold Swedish winter’s night in 2011.

With the focus less on guitar solos and more on group virtuosity, the instrumentation is altered to create interesting and intricately layered rock soundscapes, seemingly influenced by King Crimson, Amon Düül II and Sweden’s seminal prog-pioneers, Träd, Gräs och Stenar. This particular influences serve in distinguishing My Brother The Wind‘s instrumental odysseys from the current crop of European jam-bands. My Brother The Wind takes the best elements of improvised kraut and prog-rock, and once the spaceship has escaped the pull of Earth’s gravity, they drift into magnificent droning space rock and psychedelic orbits.

Their tour begins September 28. Check out Wolf‐Blood on Facebook for date and venue specifics. Formed in a dank basement during the infamous 2012 Duluth, Minnesota flood, guitarist Mike Messina and drummer Jake Paulsrud started writing psycho‐sludge experiments that sounded too stoned to be metal, and too baneful to be indie‐rock. They recruited renown hard‐core guitar sorceress Mindy Johnson and magi‐roots bassist Brian Wells to flesh‐out the menacing sound, and Wolf Blood came to life inside the polar vortex of 2013/14 with highly acclaimed performances in Duluth and Minneapolis. And this fall, after the hottest summer in recorded history, the resulting entrée finds a new home on vinyl. This seven‐song recording opens with they haunting single Witch. From there…you’re on your own for the next 35 feral, blood stained minutes.

Alchemic Heart is a special project presented by Vampillia who have colored these two collosal compositions with beautiful contributions by Jarboe (ex-SWANS), Inswarm and Japanese Noise-God MERZBOW. Layered strings, piano, bass, noise and voices are weaved mysteriously and expand as two magnificently parallel aesthetic worlds. Comprised of two pieces, Sea/Land, a primitive landscape is created via listening and destroyed when the pieces are complete. 

Vampillia, much like the Boredoms, absorb rock, noise, modern composition, experimental music & pop and explode it out as hardcore spirit music. They hail from Osaka, Japan and are a brutal orchestra with three distinct vocalists backed by twin violins, piano, twin guitars, bass, turntables, Toyohito Yoshikawa on drums as well as Tatsuya Yoshida and Kazuhisa Chikada.In the last few years, Vampillia have played, recorded and toured with artists as influential and varied as Attila Csihar (Sunn O))), Mayhem), Vincent Gallo, Thee Oh Sees, Nadja, Atlas Sound, Alcest, Jarboe (ex-Swans), Boris, Melt Banana and Merzbow among many others.

JERUSALEM

Band:JERUSALEM
Album:JERUSALEM
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

A new pressing of this massive hard rock monster from 1972

Old style tip-on gatefold jacket and quality vinyl pressing - Includes insert with history of the group, lyrics and photos.

“Sledgehammer-heavy masterpiece of underground British rock!” —Classic Rock Magazine

“Big fat chords, wailing guitar, punch-drunk bass and straight-ahead solid drums all strutting in your face like some massive guy you just don't want to f**k with.” —Head Heritage

Timeless, heavy UK hard rock album from 1972, produced by Deep Purple's legendary frontman, Ian Gillan, originally released on the Decca/Deram label. It was Gillan who said of them: “Not many bands really excite me. But this one’s so raw and completely unpretentious. They make the biggest, bloodiest noise you can imagine, tempered with moments of extreme emotion.” And, of course, he’s right—the music is a menacing combination of over-the-top vocals and screaming lead guitars that could easily pass for something from the early British heavy metal scene—or something from the emotional hard core scene of the mid-1990's ('Primitive Man'). A favorite among vinyl collectors, the album is presented here in its ultimate glory, with all tracks taken from the original master tapes and housed in a high quality old-style gatefold cover; insert has liner notes written by bassist Paul Dean + rare photos. Rough, raw, and doomy!

 

 

PLASTIC CLOUD - LP

Band:PLASTIC CLOUD
Album:PLASTIC CLOUD - LP
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

One of the top underground psychedelic albums ever released

Allied Records first pressings (1968) sell for nearly $1,000

LP pressed in a 180 gram edition of 500 copies - Comes with lyric insert and replica vintage press release "What remains so remarkable about the band's album is that... the performances retain an energy, but also a naivety, that somehow evokes both the Jefferson Airplane and the Velvet Underground — often within the same song." —Shindig!

Plastic Cloud recorded, quite simply, one of the greatest underground psychedelic albums ever made: a swirl of gossamer vocals and Tolkien references, swathed in the some of the most relentless fuzz guitar you will ever hear. There is no point singling out a specific track, they are all excellent—one is equally as good as the next. Take for example the album centerpiece, the ten-and-a-half-minute ‘You Don't Care,’ an insane piece of social commentary that features terrific back-of-the-mix fuzz guitar as an elusive focal point to its extended pounding-drum laden instrumental breaks; a ten-minute swath of lysergic fuzz guitar that closes out the first side, it doesn't overstay its welcome, winding its way to a final freak out. A record with few equals, full of foreboding melodies and lovely hippie harmonies, as well as some of the trippiest fuzz guitar ever recorded. Essential psychedelia!

 

 

PTARMIGAN - LP

Band:PTARMIGAN
Album:PTARMIGAN - LP
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

First official vinyl reissue since it's debut in 1974

Limited edition of 500 copies - Huge insert comes with lyrics, liner notes from the band, and more

Ptarmigan recorded the basic tracks for what would eventually become their only album in 1972. It then took the band’s producer and manager, renowned flautist Paul Horn, more than a year to find a label willing to release such unusual music. Finally, in 1974, Columbia Records released Ptarmigan’s album to critical acclaim, and minimal sales. The music of Ptarmigan is deep and authentic and intimate; it's reflective sounds are well suited to meditating on a landscape, an emotion, a bottle of wine, or maybe while staring at a flickering candle. Sometimes it is free-flowing and jazz-oriented; at other times it has the mystical feel of a shamanistic ceremony, fueled by Eastern-tinged harmonies. But in the end, this album is about the sea: Ptarmigan was, after all, from Vancouver Island, and the musicians were well-versed in the contradictory moods of the surrounding ocean. Hypnotic, mystical, largely instrumental tracks, all based on a complex interplay of recorder, hand drums and acoustic guitar—one of those hidden gems that make life better when you discover them all these years later. Rated by many as the best "folk/progressive" and/or "folk/psych" album ever made. As one contemporary review said, this is "music from musicians, for musicians, late-at-night, last joint music." Our Lion Productions reissue comes with a massive fold-out insert which includes lyrics, liner notes from the band, and a multitude of photos and historical mementos.

 

 

SURYA NAMASKAR

Band:DEWA BUDJANA
Album:SURYA NAMASKAR
Label:SIREENA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Prog Rock

The seventh solo album from Indonesian progressive guitar legend Dewa Budjana sees the maestro cast aside the dense, meticulously-arranged approach that defined his previous MJR releases (last year's critically-acclaimed efforts: Dawai In Paradise, and Joged Kahyangan), in favor of a more streamlined set that burns with a rare intensity and squarely places Dewa's formidable chops front and center. Supported by progressive fretless bass legend Jimmy Johnson and the undeniably world-class rhythms of renowned drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, Budjana's fretwork is as delightfully unpredictable as it is soulful and compelling. Full of twists and turns you could never see coming, Surya Namaskar provides ample evidence that Dewa is just as much at home in moments of pure spontanity, ripping over a killer groove, as he is in denser, more orchestrated settings. Exploring previously-unrevealed facets of his artistic mystique, this album highlights a more instinctive, uninhibited approach to both his guitar playing and music making. Served up just-out-of-the-oven fresh and delivered with conviction and urgency, each song is its own unique, engulfing cosmic voyage. While this is unquestionably more of a "guitarist's album" than his previous MJR output, Dewa proves that he is more than up to the task of dawning the six-string superhero cape -- making a strong case to not only be included among the world's most elite axemen, but also among its most diverse and accomplished. There is an expansive palette of styles on display here in a set that's brimming with playful abandon, but never at the expense of either emotion or cohesion. This is polished progressive music, at its most brilliantly creative, far-reaching and convincing. Featuring inspired guest performances from Allan Holdsworth' and John McLaughlin's veteran sideman, Gary Husband (on synth), and L.A. studio guitar icon, Michael Landau, Surya Namaskar is the most personal statement yet from one of the world's most complete guitarists and unique composers -- a brilliant, vital release.

Released on 180 Gram vinyl LP.

LIVE - THE MELODY, THE BEAT, THE HEART

Band:TRIBUTE
Album:LIVE - THE MELODY, THE BEAT, THE HEART
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

The Swedish symphonic rockband Tribute was founded 1982 by the two musicians/composers Gideon Andersson and Josef (formerly Christer) Rhedin. The band created four albums - ”New Views”, ”Breaking Barriers”, ”Live” and ”Terra Incognita”. ”New Views” was the first album and was the one that gave the group their breakthrough in Germany and Sweden in the middle of the nineteen eighties. Tribute toured continuously between 1983 and 1986, and established a large following among the symphonic/progressive rock lovers. Tribute's music is mostly instrumental. It is focused on rhythm, intricate riffs and melodies. In the orchestration there is plenty of classical percussion, such as tubular bells, vibraphone, marimba and timpani. There is also a strong impact from the keyboard section mastered by Josef Rhedin. Another significant aspect of Tribute is that all musicians were multiinstrumentalists, which made a significant impression on their audience.

After the success of their debut album "New Views" (SIR 2105) legendary Drummer Pierre Moerlen (GONG), joined the band. He should be a member of TRIBUTE for the next years. Together they went into the studio in 1986 to record the second album "Breaking Barriers" (SIR 2115). After that, the band continued their extensive tour life. (By the end of 1986, the Swedes had given more than 300 concerts, mostly in Sweden, the Netherlands and their secret stronghold, the northern part of Germany). In the fall of 1986, the concerts were recorded, mostly in “Die Große Freiheit” in Hamburg and in Emden and Friesoythe, too. This CD contains the hit "Icebreaker" and also a lot of songs that are not included on the two studio albums of TRIBUTE. The special class of the Swedish band is reflected in every song. What a joy!

VAR

Band:VAR
Album:VAR
Label:BESTE! UNTERHALTUNG
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Myrra Rós, the Icelandic singer-songwriter, has not only a passion. So far us the musician from Reykjavik has drawn with fine, reduced tracks under the spell: only with guitar and voice.

Myrra Rós but can do other things: With her newly wedded husband Júlíus Óttar Björgvinsson she has mid-2013 raised the project VAR. Poetic little electronica gems that come along with tapsender tenderness and evoking vague longing for a better, more beautiful world . Sigur Rós here are not remotely as a driving force. Very dreamy, peaceful sounds are the ones that can sit up in the VAR debut album. Warm synth sounds caress your soul. But these tracks are not harmless! Multi-layered and shimmering already meets the thing more!

The tracks are marked by the first album of dark, expressive voice of the singer, who wants to fit in so none at all of the common Icelandic elves clichés. Sometimes these tracks even come therefore solemnly. Does not really have to wonder, has nevertheless contributed Karl Pestka by renowned Icelandic vocal ensemble "Árstirdir" on two songs, the string arrangements. On the Atlantic island of these delicate electronic sounds have already arrived so well that VAR were invited to perform in autumn in Iceland Airwaves, the most important festival of the country.

Live come VAR way as a quintet therefore: It can not and must therefore also be a bit noisy, with the active support of the drummer Andri Freyr Þorgeirsson that normally circulates the drumsticks at the legendary rockers For A Minor Reflection..

Where there is illumination a shadow is always cast and therefore all shadows originate in light. It is which these singular precepts that Krist Mort tackles her photographic work.

Beauty and death, light and darkness, invocations and spirits are the foundations on which she creates her evocative imagery.The book comes with an exclusive audio CD by Russian esoterist LAMIA VOX. 3 unique ritualistic pieces were channeled to accompany Krist Mort's visions, adding a deeply mystical aural dimension to the visual work.Book Design by trineogkim.no Standard Edition of 450 Copies:Book Format: 7x10".

WILD

Band:PORD
Album:WILD
Label:SOLAR FLARE
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

A powerful brand of noise rock reminiscent of reference bands such as Dazzling Killmen, Keelhaul or Craw, a blend of complexly structured compositions with the throbbing and hypnotic undertow that the trio is so fond of, along with a sometimes heavy and powerful, sometimes twisted rhythmic section, backed by incredibly tortured vocals emerged. In March of 2014, PORD raided Rec Studio in Geneva to record their sophomore LP with Serge Morattel (Knut, Tantrum, Ventura, Basement...), dubbed Wild. The strewn but cohesive nature of the band's output on Wild is as contagious as it is caustic, the album's output showing a renewed musical evolution, with PORD's typical raging sound coupled with a hint of straight rock and roll on a number of songs. With a faster pace and precise execution, their taut and aggressive delivery remains intact throughout the nearly forty-minute venture. The vocals also evolve toward a more rasping, primitive and offbeat rendering of cruder and increasingly straightforward lyrics. Solar Flare Records will bedazzle the humans with the release of Wild in September via digital download, CD and both black and swamp green/bone splatter 12" vinyl this November. A final release date and album details as well as multiple tracks from the album will be leaked in the coming weeks.

Album:STORY OF THE YARDBIRDS / BEAT BEAT BEAT
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:2 DVD
Genre:Rock

TWO DVD'S FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!

STORY OF THE YARDBIRDS - The Yardbirds remain one of the truly legendary and influential bands of the sixties. They are responsible for hit records such as Still I’m Sad, Shapes Of Things, Heart full Of Soul and For Your Love, not to mention the classic albums Five Live Yardbirds and Roger The Engineer. This DVD tells the visual story of one of Rock’s legendary bands and contains interviews and also footage of the band, which continues to this day led by Jim McCarty and Chris Dreja.

BEAT, BEAT, BEAT - Beat Beat Beat was a German music programme that ran during the sixties. Not to be confused with the other well known German pop programme Beat Club, Beat Beat Beat was broadcast out of Frankfurt commencing in 1966. The programme ran to 26 episodes between its launch in 1966 and the final programme in January 1969, all of which are still in the German television archives. The shows were eclectic affairs and included performances by artists as diverse as Eric Burdon and the New Animals, The Move, Sam and Dave , Cat Stevens and Barry Ryan to name just a few. Volume ten in the Beat Beat Beat series of DVDs features a rare performance from the British rock band The Yardbirds. Taped in March 1967, the line-up at this time featured Jimmy Page on guitar.

 

 

WILD CONNECTIONS / MARSCAPE

Band:JACK LANCASTER
Album:WILD CONNECTIONS / MARSCAPE
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

2 CD'S FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!

Features “Wild Connections” and “Marscape”. Both Jack Lancaster and Robin Lumley are a brace of musicians who have had a rich and varied career within the progressive rock and jazz rock idioms. They first appeared together in a studio band called The Soul Searchers which also included within its line-up John Goodsall (guitar), Gary Moore (guitar), Percy Jones (bass) and Bill Bruford (drums). Lancaster and Lumley wrote the two songs that appeared as a single in 1975, Scaramouche / Head Stand (1975, EMI).

But they were hardly blushing newcomers to the world of music. Lancaster had already made a name for himself playing with Mick Abrahams in Blodwyn Pig, and Lumley (yes, the rumours are true - he is the second cousin of the delectable Joanna) had been in Brand X alongside Phil Collins. He even had a brief spell playing keyboards in David Bowie’s Spiders from Mars. In the mid-1970s Lancaster and Lumley teamed up for a major undertaking – a proggy reworking of Sergei Prokoviev’s Peter and the Wolf featuring such luminaries as Gary Moore, Manfred Mann, Phil Collins, Bill Bruford, Stéphane Grappelli, Alvin Lee,Cozy Powell, Brian Eno, and Jon Hiseman. In 1976 they teamed up for their second project together.

This time round the album was totally instrumental and based on a loose concept. Released in 1976, it as titled Marscape. Musically, this is a more progressive and impressionistic version of the Brand X sound; one song might be quite aggressive, the next one is quite gentle with a spacy atmosphere that makes you think of the desolate Mars landscape. This album should not be overlooked, especially if you're a Genesis/Phil Collins/Brand X fan. Because this is basically a Brand X album, although for contractual reasons they were unable to use the name. One of the foremost jazz rock bands that progressive rock fans immediately identify themselves with is Brand X. When Marscape was released, Brand X had not yet released their seminal debut Unorthodox Behaviour, though all members of the band also played on Marscape. Thus one could actually consider Marscape as the first release that features the members of Brand X playing together. Of course the music was composed and produced by Lancaster and Lumley. Marscape differs a bit from proper Brand X albums as the music is a bit more progressive and less fusiony and the music has much more stark contrasts to one another. Some of the cuts also feature some great piano work, something often missing from Brand X albums.

Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO CDS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! Features “Valley Gardens” and “Wally”.

Wally was a band led by songwriter Roy Webber in the early seventies. They formed in Harrogate and were successful on the local scene. In 1973 the band entered a competitions sponsored by the weekly music paper Melody Maker to find a new recording act. The final took place at the Roundhouse in London and while the band were the runners-up they actually did very well. They caught the eye of radio DJ and presenter of The Old Grey Whistle Test , Bob Harris. The runners-up prize was to record a session for Bob’s radio show. Bob was so impressed with the band that he helped secure them a contract with Atlantic Records. Wally recorded their debut album with Bob Harris producing and Rick Wakeman acting as executive producer. Once the record was released the band embarked on a series of live dates including a high profile appearance at the Crystal Palace Garden Party supporting Rick Wakeman who had recently left Yes and was presenting his Journey To The Centre of The earth Show. Valley Gardens was the bands second album, released in 1975. By this time Nick Glennie-Smith had replaced Peter Gerret on keyboards. Again Bob Harris produced the album, which was notable for the inclusion of the side-long track The Reason Why. This song became a live favourite and is still highly regarded by the group's loyal fan base.

 

 

1984 / OUT THERE

Band:RICK WAKEMAN
Album:1984 / OUT THERE
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO CDS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! Features “1984” and “Out There”.

In 1981 Rick recorded the album 1984 based on the George Orwell tale and for many of his fans and also his critics 1984 is seen as one of his more rounded works. The album features vocal performances from Jon Anderson, Kenny Lynch, Chaka Khan, Steve Harley and Tim Rice who also provided the lyrics throughout. This album is one of the few Rick Wakeman albums never to receive an official commercial release on CD and as such will be widely anticipated by the large and dedicated Rick Wakeman fan base. The CD has been re mastered for release.

Out There was originally released in 2003 and considered by many to be the true follow up album to No Earthly Connection from 1976. The album features Rick alongside The New English Rock Ensemble. The New English Rock Ensemble includes bassist Lee Pomeroy, guitarist Ant Glynne, vocalist Damian Wilson and long time drummer/percussionist Tony Fernandez who was also a featured member in the latter days of the original English Rock Ensemble and a veteran of many Wakeman albums

HOPPER/DEAN/TIPPETT/GALLIVAN was an experimental jazz outfit formed in 1976 by the formerHopper and Dean, teaming up with the renowned jazz pianist and composer Keith Tippett and the remarkable avant garde drummer/synth player Joe Gallivan. In 1977 the quartet released their album Cruel but Fair, which Wally Stoup describes as: “…a wide-ranging programme of bristling, exploratory jazz and innovative electronic music. Gallivan plays synthesiser in addition to his propulsive, pulse-oriented drums, and on several cuts ("Jannakota" and "Rocky Recluse"), the music drifts into beguiling electronic soundscapes.

 

 

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT

Band:MADAM X
Album:WE RESERVE THE RIGHT
Label:MAJESTIC ROCK
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

From Detroit, USA came Madam X and their self-titled, one and only album, ‘We Reserve The Right’…and for many things were never quite the same again. Produced by American rock legend Rick Derringer and featuring soon-to-be Vixen drummer Roxy Petrucci and her guitar playing sister Maxine, Madam X were loud visually and musically and turned heads in major fashion. Available here for the first time on CD, ‘We Reserve The Right’ is a timeless rock record crammed with anthemic, air punchin’ tracks like the single ‘High In High School’ and ‘ Come One, Come All’. OTT and Essential!

 

 

BLACK N BLUE

Band:BLACK N BLUE
Album:BLACK N BLUE
Label:MAJESTIC ROCK
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

During an era of largely vacuous L.A. centred party rock, Portland, Oregon’s BLACK N’ BLUE were a beacon in the dark. More heavily influenced by the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal and European hard rock in general than their southern Californian cousins, their demos became hotly traded items in the early eighties, resulting in a world-wide deal with Geffen records and a debut album recorded in Germany with long time Scorpions / Accept associate Dieter Dierks producing.

The album remains a classic and, along with the entire Geffen records output from the band, is issued here in Europe for the first time on CD. Remastered and with new sleeve notes, this is the alternative to paying £50.00 plus for those long deleted Japanese CD’s on E-bay!

 

 

WITHOUT LOVE

Band:BLACK N BLUE
Album:WITHOUT LOVE
Label:MAJESTIC ROCK
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Originally released in 1985 on Geffen records, the second BLACK N’ BLUE album picks up where it’s predecessor left off – indeed, it could at times almost be the same record. Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it…. Produced this time out by future Bon Jovi knob twiddler Bruce Fairbairn (indeed, Jon Bon Jovi chose Fairbairn as producer for ‘Slippery When Wet’ after hearing his work on this album), ‘Without Love’ shows a slight mainstreaming of the band’s sound – a move towards what was to come with the next album, perhaps? – but it still rocks hard.

Along with the entire Geffen records output from the band, the CD is issued here in Europe for the first time on CD. Remastered and with new sleeve notes, this is the alternative to paying £50.00 plus for those long deleted Japanese CD’s on E-bay!

 

 

NASTY NASTY

Band:BLACK N BLUE
Album:NASTY NASTY
Label:MAJESTIC ROCK
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Released in 1986 on Geffen Records and, with the exception of the album’s US top 40 single ‘I’ll Be There For You’ , produced by Kiss main man Gene Simmons, the third BLACK N’ BLUE album ‘Nasty Nasty’ saw the band take the giant step from hall fillers to stadium packers. The difference was that top 40 single, cowritten and produced by Journey’s Jonathan Cain. ‘I’ll Be There For You’ is a great – actually, make that GREAT! – song, but the album has plenty to offer over and above that one song.

Along with the entire Geffen records output from the band, the album is issued here in Europe for the first time on CD. Remastered and with new sleeve notes, this is the alternative to paying £50.00 plus for those long deleted Japanese CD’s on E-bay!

 

 

IN HEAT

Band:BLACK N BLUE
Album:IN HEAT
Label:MAJESTIC ROCK
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

For many, ‘In Heat’ – with it’s superb Gene Simmons production and overt Def Leppardisms – is the perfect BLACK N’ BLUE album. Indeed, ‘Get Wise To The Rise’ and ‘Heat It Up! Burn It Out!’ rock harder than anything the band had recorded since their first album. This was to be the last of a quartet of great eighties hard rock albums that the band would record with it’s original line-up. Various members have worked together on projects in the years since, but this was really as good as it got… Along with the entire Geffen records output from the band, the album is issued here in Europe for the first time on CD. Remastered and with new sleeve notes, this is the alternative to paying £50.00 plus for those long deleted Japanese CD’s on E-bay!

 

 

AGE OF SUPREMACY

Band:GUNFIRE
Album:AGE OF SUPREMACY
Label:JOLLY ROGER
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Gunfire were born in Ancona in 1983 and in 1984 they recorded their first, self-titled mini Lp (4 tracks), nowadays a pretty rare and expensive collectable item. They broke in 1986 and come back in 2000 with original line-up except the drummer, adding a second guitar. "Thunder of War" was released in 2005 by german label Battle Cry. “Age of Supremacy” is the new concept-album, telling the history of mankind that left the earth 1000 years ago and is now divided into two factions that evolved in different ways. The story is not based on the fight between good and evil but rather the inability of communication between two peoples in the distant and hypothetical future, as often happens today. Musically it’s a wellbalanced mix between power & progressive metal, with some symphonic parts, leaded by mighty and talented lead vocals, similar to Queensryche Geoff Tate (Operation Mindcrime era).

Highly addictive tunes!

ELEVATOR

Band:TYRED EYES
Album:ELEVATOR
Label:GAPHALS
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Tyred Eyes are back with their new album Elevator. The band have since the start taken big musical and inspirational steps between releases, and the difference between last year’s Ghost Ep and new album Elevator is substantial. If Ghost Ep consisted of 4 short and direct pop songs with a lot of punk attitude, then Elevator is it’s older and more mellow sibling. The older sister with the cool band posters who smoked cigarettes and knew what bands were shown on MTV. Tyred Eyes has been influenced a lot of the lo-fi/indie bands of the 90’s, as opposed to 70’s punk, which has set a great impact on the new album. The album titel ”Elevator” refers to the original meaning of the word, “something that elevates”, rather than a means of transportation. However, Tyred Eyes are now ready to move to the next floor.

BORN OF FIRE FORGED BY DEATH SPLIT

Band:KULT OF TAURUS / EREVOS AENAON
Album:BORN OF FIRE FORGED BY DEATH SPLIT
Label:FOREVER PLAGUED
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

KULT OF TAURUS are proud to announce that they have prepared a very special split assault with their old comrades EREVOS AENAON that will mark their first official presence, jointly titled Born of Fire, Forged By Death. The split CD will have two halves, "Side Fire" and "Side Death." "Side Fire" will contain four songs from older KULT OF TAURUS material (demos, splits) that were chosen to represent the band's past but with all of them re-recorded in 2012, given the proper shape and sound they should have had back then. A rawer and more primitive side of KULT OF TAURUS is now revealed, yet it contains some of the identical riffing that led to their celebrated "Divination Labyrinths." "Side Death" will contain four songs that emanate EREVOS AENAON's own essence both in music but also in philosophy. EREVOS AENAON might not sound familiar to those outside Greece, but they have been around since 2000, spreading handmade demo recordings as well as some notorious local live performances. Two old tracks and two new ones have been recorded especially for this release featuring KULT OF TAURUS members; fans of older Deathspell Omega or Hirilorn may find some interesting sounds herein.

 

 

AMIDST THE TREES

Band:TAATSI
Album:AMIDST THE TREES
Label:FOREVER PLAGUED
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Amidst The Trees marks this Finnish duo's debut album, since a such a short time since their demo was unleashed by Forever Plagued Records. A. & M. have both been involved within their respected black metal scenes since the mid 90's in one form or another. Taatsi strongly feel that they must convey the old sound despite the many new forms that have embued the genre today.The lyrics and overall theme of the band deal with the majesty of nature as well as Scandinavian folklore and fairy tales, with a deeper psychological twist. The relationship of man with the woods. The name Taatsi comes from a sacrificial stone located in northern Finland. A very refreshing sound to come from Finland in quite awhile. FPR is proud to add this majestic band to our roster and are sure that many will enjoy their work as much as we do, where the past is alive! Fans of Strid & "old" Manes may find this to be quite good!

This has since been followed by three more albums “Requiem Aeternam”, “For Thee I Pray” and “Divine Intervention”, with their fifth album “”Unforgiven” to be released on the Ravenheart Music label.

PROCESSION THROUGH INFESTATION

Band:ZOMBIFIED
Album:PROCESSION THROUGH INFESTATION
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

ZOMBIEFICATION has the rare chance to be both an already confirmed act within the death-metal realm while at the same time being still a bit of an outcast. Maybe this had something to do with the fact that they were until recently just a Mexican duo confined in a studio where they already churned out two great albums – 2010’s ‘Midnight Stench’ and 2013’s ‘At the Caves of Eternal’ – plus one equally-storming EP (‘Reaper’s Consecration’). Or that their style is both familiar and alien somehow as it fuses the classic Swedish sound of the early 90’s with the occult obsession and epic structures typical of their national scene. But for their brand new full-length, and first released under the DOOMENTIA banner, they’ve decided to upgrade their game and take the whole thing to the next level.

INVICTUS ET AETERNUS

Band:ORDO INFERNUS
Album:INVICTUS ET AETERNUS
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Exactly one year ago, on the strength of their three tracks debut EP alone and despite being spread over two different countries, ORDO INFERUS proved that the whole ‘super-group’ thing wasn’t a word without substance. In fact, in only twelve minutes, they annihilated most of the competition with their own style of death metal originating from the golden era when it was all about heavy and catchy riffing in the service of actual proper songs and not a wanking fest at the speed of light. Twelve months later, some may have left the building (Daryl Kahan from DISMA and FUNEBRARUM and former NECROPHOBIC Martin Halfan) and others have replaced them (like former NIFELHEIM and current BLACK TRIP axeman Sebastian Ramstedt), guitarist Hempa Brynolfsson and drummer Janne Björkenfjäll are still fueling the machine but as a band, they are stronger than ever. As a matter of fact the, now 100% Swedish, cohort is about to unleash hell with their debut full-length called ‘Invictus et Aeternus’. With music rooted in classic death metal and none of the members forgotten that good old songwriting will always win over a pile of riffs on the top of each other together with senseless brutality, ORDO INFERUS redefines the word ‘epic’ with this annihilating collection of twelve tracks (nine songs and three instrumentals).

ERODED THOUGHTS

Band:MORGUE
Album:ERODED THOUGHTS
Label:DARK DESCENT
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

1993 classic and one of the most underrated death metal gems "Eroded Thoughts" compiled, with their "Random Decay" and "Severe Psychopathology" demos. Having been label mates with the mighty MORBID SAINT, we feel this criminally overlooked album is easily one of the best death metal offerings to come from the USA. Sick, twisted, technical and brutal. Reminiscent of, yet still very unique and easily contending with such masters as Pestilence, Gorguts, or Cianide, we are honored to give this overlooked jewel new life compiled with the band's demos making this the COMPLETE Morgue collection.

16 page booklet packed with band photos and liner notes from Olivier "Zoltan" Badin.
