DARKNESS

Band:HELL BORN
Album:DARKNESS
Label:Witching Hour Productions
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Classic old school death metal masterpiece from ex-members of Behemoth & Damnation.

The group was formed in 95/96 by Baal and Les. The band’s debut self-titled CD was released in 96 and let the band join the leaders of the so-called „retro style”. After a four years break for the band, Jeff joins HELL-BORN on bass and vocals (he would leave that in favor of Baal, and switch to guitar later on). The band starts with serious rehearsals and enters the walls of the “Hertz” studio for the first time. This starts a new episode in the band’s history, marked with the releases of the “Hellblast” mini-album, “The Call of Megiddo” and the “Legacy of the Nephilim” albums. Each release was followed by great press-reviews, and the world was terrorized with hundreds of live-shows, including two North-American tours. The album “Legacy o the Nephilim” leads the band to sign an endorsement deal with “MAYONES” Guitars & Basses custom workshop. In June 2005 HELL-BORN enters the “HERTZ” studio once again to record their third full-length album, “Cursed Infernal Steel”. The album was enthusiastically reviewed by the press, and the band decided once again to tour and devastate the Polish grounds in late 2006. Next year, 2007, was spent on preparations for recording new album “Darkness” in HERTZ STUDIO.

TERMINAL.

Band:SALOME
Album:TERMINAL.
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Known for their stunning live performance and fronted by a woman who is known to have one of the strongest voices in doom metal and known to uphold quite a powerful presence when the band perform live, SALOME first made waves several years ago when unleashing their debut self-titled album to an unsuspecting audience. Harnessed solely by vocals, guitars, and drums, SALOME quickly became one of the more reputable bands within the American doom metal scene and more importantly, the band would easily be known as one of the heaviest American doom metal bands alongside such doom metal bands as Yob and Dark Castle respectively and likewise the band became known for carrying the doom metal torch passed onto them by such doom metal legends as Khanate and Burning Witch (two bands in which SALOME became somewhat synonymous with).

“Terminal” has been deemed by Decibel and Terrorizer (two of the top metal magazines today) as one of the most anticipated album of 2010 - Absolutely mandatory for fans of YOB, KHANATE, SUNN 0))), and BURNING WITCH.

Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

ATLANTEAN KODEX’s “The Golden Bough” is one of the most anticipated releases for 2010. The German band has been able to built a strong and devoted fan-base within the Metal Underground movement with a series of limited edition releases, and the participation to the most valuable festivals (Keep It True, Hammer of Doom, Up the Hammers) of the same kind. They’re now ready to make a step forward, even improving the Magick and the Purity of their Metal offer with “The Golden Bough”, already praised by the German press as “„Maybe one of the best metal albums from Germany ever“ (Rock Hard) and „One of the best albums by a German Metal Band ever ... Album of the Year“ (15/15 - musikreviews.de). With everything that should make a Metal release worth its name (extreme heaviness, melodies and killer solos/vocals), with references to early Manowar, Bathory and Solstice, “The Golden Bough” will not leave any Metal fan unmoved, becoming a serious candidate to the best-of-the-year-lists.

SCHEDULE ONE

Band:THIRDSHOCK
Album:SCHEDULE ONE
Label:GAMMA PROFORMA
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Belfast's Third Shock are a covert outfit, never keen on hype they resist probing on every level. Key contributors to the early Intelligent Techno movement with early releases on the now legendary Mutant Disko and GPR labels they stood alongside heavyweights Black Dog, Plaid and Mark Broom during the mid-nineties. Friends of the Wipeout school of electronica will not be disappointed. We've been instructed that there's nothing more to say, other than 'listen for yourself!'

"Resistant to engaging with the likes of me on every level Third Shock – Belfast’s techno trio who have been associated with Mutant Disko and the early days of the UK’s intelligent techno movement - clearly want to let the music do the talking. What think they are saying is “we like claustrophobic funky beats that draw from the past but look to the future, and this is how we wa it to sound. Fuck off if you don’t like it.” Which is fine by me, as I rather do". (Gareth Owen – Electronic Beats Reviews Editor)

One just needs to hear The Impalers to recognize their true love for Jamaican music. The Impalers take the very best of 60’s and 70’s reggae—deep grooves you would expect of the The Soul Vendors or The Harry J Allstars; sweet melodies like those of Phyllis Dillon, Dawn Penn or Horace Andy; and funky, soul-drenched horns you’d find from the likes of Tommy McCook or Roland Alphonso. These elements, along with the explosive blues and soul of vocalist Cindy Chi, create a potent mix that attracts big, loyal and diverse crowds.

Album:ANARCHOGRAM
Label:ANARCHOGRAM INDUSTRIES
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

‘Anarchogram’ EP - featuring two new tracks of blistering punk infused death metal that scream rebellion and defiance and follow on where 'Get Dead Or Die Trying' left off! Says guitarist Tim Carley, "These songs are the first we have written with the new line-up and we are really buzzing about letting people hear them! The new songs cover the usual subjects of rebellion and subversion of the norm and the covers we have chosen have worked out great, we have really made them our own! We’ve wanted to do something like this for ages, put out a self-financed DIY release on our own label, like the way we used to more than 10 years ago, before Myspace and Blog sites and all that crap. We’ve got the opportunity to do it this summer and it’s a way for us to give something back to the fans at a low cost". As bonus tracks, each band member has picked a song to cover by a band they want to personally pay tribute to, for inspiring them to play extreme music in the first place. "These are just a bit of fun really, and a chance to pay homage to the Metal Messiahs we worshipped during our teenage years. Most musicians have a list of cover songs they'd love to play, and I'm sure you won't be disappointed with our choices!" Says vocalist Ben McCrow.

Psychedelic side of the third stage is composed by seven new songs under the title "Other Worlds", also completely instrumental, linked sequentially forming an ordered whole. Music non-designed, most well developed for restless ears. With a cinematic touch developmental (perfect for any horror movie with an air 70's) live between the prog and psych and serve as the perfect soundtrack to a long postnuclear journey. It is not coincidence that the band was supported by the same SITGES International Film Festival to create the music of one of his first video clip, "Escalera Roja/ Scala Rosa." Upcoming live album with ex – CAN vocalist DAMO SUZUKI.

THE TENANT LP

Band:LUDICRA
Album:THE TENANT LP
Label:ALONE RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Black Metal

'For the last decade, Bay Area quintet Ludicra has been one of the best-kept secrets in metal music, quietly breaking new ground in extreme metal with a series of albums that, while rooted in black metal, have dared to think outside the parameters of that one particular genre. It’s not uncommon to see metal bands start out operating within the strict confines of a genre template only to stretch their sound far beyond what scenesters would define as “true”, developing a more all-inclusive approach, and over the last five years Ludicra has been one of the very best at it. 2002’s blistering Hollow Psalms and the follow-up Another Great Love Song two years later were excellent, surprisingly refined pieces of work, but it was with 2006’s Fex Urbis Lex Orbis that the band truly started to turn heads. That album marked a move towards progressive rock and traditional heavy metal that bore a striking similarity to the stylistic shift that Norwegian greats Enslaved were undergoing at the same time, black metal rules be damned. That “The Tenant” is a significant step forward is made abundantly clear from the second we delve into the beautifully designed.' (pop matters.com)

Limited special edition vinyl on 350gr. thick cardboard with Spot gloss finish cover and 180gr black vinyl at 45 rpm. CD available on the mighty Profound Lore label.

 

 

SENTENCIA

Band:ORTHODOX
Album:SENTENCIA
Label:ALONE RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

With the release of “Sentencia”, the sevillanos ORTHODOX follow up their onw path through musical unconventionalism, a solitary path, like swinning against the waves, taking their music further beyond than ever, taking influences from tunes lost in the time, denying from absurd commercial standards and getting the real from their own land roots. The new album sail through more acoustic sounds, being a step away from the darker passages on their previous recordings, to create the “heaviest” record ever in their career. A pure testimony against their particular own leviathan.. Every time a step forward and every time further from any label or scene. “Sentencia” is another jumb in the sense of the evolution for a band like Orthodox. With an instrumentation closer to Jazz than ever before, the album is best example of the music progression the band always wanted to show, from their unique heavy metal perspective, and particular vision of the traditional andalusian music has to be performed in their own repertoire: influences from the spanish composers Falla or Albeniz, the experiments of György Ligeti and Olivier Messiaen or the power on the latest John Coltrane... They are the strong base that makes the ultimate masterpiece made by Orthodox. Deluxe Cd packaging on recycled paper with supreme artwork.

GERMAN OAK LP

Band:GERMAN OAK
Album:GERMAN OAK LP
Label:FLASBACK
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

“..Imagine a brutally-recorded, brazen and ulta-skeletal industrial white funk played with all the claw-handed technique of Red Crayola recording their famous Hurricane Fighting Plane. This is the sound of German Oak” Julian Cope During the summer of 1972, best remembered for the bloodshed of the Munich Olympics, the 5-man Dusseldorf instrumental group German Oak entered the Luftschutzbunker (Air Raid Shelter) studio to record their first, eponymous album. The strange acoustic conditions in the bunker made the music, which was a series of long, spacious guitar jams, sound distant and filled with echo. Originally released on the Bunker label, this strange and unusual album, presented here with 3 bonus tracks, has become somewhat of a legend.

Numbered limited edition - Highly collectable VINYL !

Andy Fernbach is a folk/blues singer and guitarist from Bournemouth whose first recordings on Me and the devil compilation (LP, 1968); Duckin’ and dodgin’, Broken down Engine and Hard Time Killing Floor (he’s backed by Nick Whiffen on harmonica on the first two) were interesting arrangements of traditional tunes.

I`M A LONER

Band:SHAWN PHILLIPS
Album:I`M A LONER
Label:TIME
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Folk

LIMITED VINYL REISSUE!

Phillips was still in pretty much of a traditional early-'60s folk troubadour mode on his debut album, on which he's accompanied only by his 12-string acoustic guitar. He did stand out from much of the competition (certainly in Britain, where the American singer was based by the time of this mid-'60s release) by virtue of his eclectic repertoire, impassioned delivery, and imaginative arrangements. He wasn't as much of an innovator as peers such as Dino Valenti and Fred Neil were in this respect, but like them he was breaking away to some degree from hidebound, stiff folk deliveries. He wasn't recording much original material, though, and this set is largely devoted to covers of songs by the likes of Phil Ochs (including the obscure "I'm Tired"; Ochs' own version wouldn't be released until the 1980s), Hamilton Camp's "Pride of Man" (years before Quicksilver Messenger Service popularized it as a rock song), and Travis Edmonson's title track, which is better known under the title "The Drifter." The inclusion of a couple of mainstream pop/musical standards ("It Was a Very Good Year" and "My Favourite Things") was certainly a departure for a hip young folksinger of the time. The three original tunes were OK, though not outstanding -- numbers that, like most of the album, project an earnestness that is both likable and dated. Shortly after its first appearance, this was issued again under the title Favorite Things; in 1999, it was reissued on CD by Wounded Bird.

 

 

LET THEM EAT PI

Band:PI CORP / ALAN HOWARTH
Album:LET THEM EAT PI
Label:ALMAKARMA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

LTD VINYL REISSUE WITH GATEFOLD COVER + INSERT

Pi Corp features the early works and innovative sounds of electronic music Pioneer Alan Howarth. Alan began his musical career in Cleveland playing with bands like ‘The Tree Stumps’, ‘The Renaissance Faire’, ‘The Silk’, and the first electronic band in Cleveland called ‘Braino’. Howarth went on to become one of the most sought after composer / sound designers in Hollywood. Also featured are some unforgettable and strangely haunting vocals by Woody Leffel; formerly of RCA recording artist Granicus. Woody plates a unique slice of Pi with the raw vocal style of Robert Plant and an improvisational storytelling style that he coined as “speech-sing”. The whole Pi Corp mission was to create music and lyrics spontaneously. “With the exception of “Together” and “Just Another Song”, our only two attempts at songwriting, and the two tracks with Marilyn, everything on the CD was conceived and played with absolutely no prior discussion or rehearsal… it was recorded just as it happened” says the guitarist Guy Bickel. The additional bonus tracks give the listener a much better sense of the evolving band and their mission. Pieces such as “Rock N Roll Show” and “Never Sell Out on You”, show off the extraordinary, improvisational talents of Woody Leffel. “Let Them Eat Pi”, “Organic”, and “Hash Market” is Alan at his synthesizer best.

 

 

ACQUIRING THE TASTE

Band:GENTLE GIANT
Album:ACQUIRING THE TASTE
Label:TAPESTRY
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Prog Rock

LIMITED VINYL REISSUE - ONE PRESSING OF X 500 ONLY!

The band's second album is a major advance on its first, featuring superior singing, playing, and songwriting, as well as a more unified sound, without sacrificing the element of surprise in the first record. Many of the melodies and even the riffs here (check out Gary Green's first guitar flourish on "Pantagruel's Nativity") have a pretty high haunt count, and all of the musicianship displays an elegance seldom heard even in progressive circles -- but the record also, amazingly enough, rocks really hard as well. Elements of hard rock and Gregorian chants mix freely and, amazingly enough, well throughout this album.

The idea was to do new versions of Cult TV and Film themes to help break new artists and to revive the career of the odd million selling artist. This proved highly popular spawning 6 volumes. Vol.1 of the 60’s went on to sell nearly ten thousand before the likes of This is Cult Fiction Finally cashed in on the craze. Vol. 1 & 2 have long since sold out but the remain 4 albums still sell well either mail order or as downloads. TV & Film themes never go out of fashion.

This volume is much sought after for many reasons. It features the Joe Meek related acts Glenda Collins and The Honeycombs. The later band had a worldwide No.1 with Have I the Right as well as other hits. Although on the face of it seems that the tracks are less well known. These are much sought after compositions by John Barry, Ennio Morricone, Lalo Schifrin and John Carpenter. Assault on Precinct 13 and Clockwork Orange are currently best sellers as downloads but we know from feedback that people want CDs.

THIS WAY UP

Band:BRIAN RAY
Album:THIS WAY UP
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Award winning songwriter, singer and musician Brian Ray, best known as the ultimate sideman guitarist/bassist for Paul McCartney, takes a step out front in the spotlight to release a new solo album This Way Up. Brian's second solo album, following Mondo Magneto released in 2005, can be described as rich, fun rock with hooks galore and lots of guitars supporting a classic yet modern writing style. Brian Ray has been an in-demand session/touring musician and hit songwriter for acts such as Etta James, Smokey Robinson, Rod Stewart, Kelly Clarkson and Chris Cornell to name a few. But for the past decade Brian has been touring the world's largest venues and stadiums in Paul McCartney's band. "I have been on one hell of a ride with this band. The last 8 weeks alone have been amazing, with 110,000 screaming fans in Mexico City, playing IN the White House for President Obama and the First Family, then performing at the Isle of Wight Festival, to name some big moments for us recently. Paul continues to inspire a new generation of writers and bands. I find myself in a catbird seat with a great view from ringside. It is a joy to now share some of my own music." "I Found You" was written by Brian and Oliver Leiber (son of Jerry Leiber of the legendary songwriting team, Leiber & Stoller). "It is a rambunctious, upbeat song, an expression from the best part of me, looking in every possible place for the love and peace we all want... finding it right before my eyes, where I least expected it!" The song features a guitar marching band with approximately 40 guitars having a guitar tantrum, along with a big marching drum beat. Notably the song also features some of Ray's rock star pals: Scott Shriner (Weezer), drums and bass by Pete Thomas, Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello s band), Adam MacDougal (The Black Crows) on wild Wurlitzer piano.

 

 

WESTERN COUNTRY

Band:CALEB KLAUDER
Album:WESTERN COUNTRY
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Country

"Should really be ‘Northwestern Country,’ as Klauder’s based in Portland, OR, but, fair enough, since the mass exodus of California country luminaries like Mike Stinson, Portland and Seattle do seem to be the new West. While enjoying a fair amount of success as vocalist/mandolin player with old-timey Foghorn Stringband, Klauder’s also been pursuing a parallel solo career, exploring early honky tonk and bluegrass styles, though his first album, Sings Out (Padre, 2000) seems to have been swept under the rug. His second, Dangerous Mes & Poisonous Yous (Padre, 2007), a very fine piece of work, got some attention but he didn’t start promoting it until earlier this year, when he signed on with the same Pacific NW outfit that brought us the fabulous Zoe Muth of Seattle (a recent Muth/Klauder doublebill must have something else). Klauder’s inspirational timeframe for his six splendid originals can be gauged from the six covers, Satisfied Mind, a #1 hit for Porter Wagoner in 1955, Charlie & Ira Louvin’s My Baby Came Back, GB Grayson & Henry Whittier’s Joking Henry, What Was I Supposed To Do? and Deep River by Paul Williams, who played mandolin with Jimmy Martin’s Sunny Mountain Boys in the 50s, and bluegrass pioneer Bill Reid’s In My Heart I Love You Yet. What makes this package special isn’t just Klauder’s dusty, authentic vocal styling—he’s been compared to Hank Williams, Charlie Monroe, Dwight Yoakam, Townes Van Zandt (?) and Doug Sahm, though what I’m hearing is a healthy dose of Lefty Frizzell—but also his superb production. This album just plain and simple sounds right, as close as you’ll get to a 50s LP without actually touching vinyl." -  John Conquest, 3rd Coast Music, September, 2010

 

 

BENDING MIRRORS

Band:CELILO
Album:BENDING MIRRORS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Celilo's debut release Bending Mirrors pushes the boundries of Americana with its hushed radiator glow, languid tempos, liquid melodies, burnt molasses vocals, eagle-eyed observation, and Steinbeckian lyrics. They evoke 70's Neil Young but also Pink Floyd's Dark Side of Moon with their on-a-dime melodic turnarounds, crushing ballads and searing breakdowns, they've become alchemists at blending lush sun dappled pop forms with the heartbreak and high lonesome twang that has always marked great country music.

 

 

HIT IT N QUIT IT

Band:CURTIS SALGADO AND TERRY ROBB

Genre:Blues

Consummate singer-songwriter-harmonica player Curtis Salgado has been a wellkept secret for years. Formerly lead vocalist for the Grammy-winning band Roomful of Blues, and later with Robert Cray, the Stilettos, and Santana, Salgado boasts exceptional phrasing and vocal fluency, from blues to rock to funk to soul to gospel, which are a delight to serious musicians and fans alike. After his critically acclaimed solo efforts "Curtis Salgado" (1991), "More Than You Can Chew" (1995), Salgado teamed up with NW Blues great Terry Robb to produce “Hit it ‘n Quit it “ in 1997. It’s a down and dirty funky blues record that has had limited availability until now.

 

 

THE HEARTS WE BROKE ON THE WAY TO THE SHOW

Band:THE IDLE HANDS
Album:THE HEARTS WE BROKE ON THE WAY TO THE SHOW
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

"The lead singer is one of those tall skinny indie heartthrobs who sings aksant into the mike in pure britpop style, but the guitars and the drums are pure indie rock. Loaded, their standout track, is simple, catchy and dancable but who needs complicated when you just want to rock out? The Secretary is intense guitars and wailing vocals reminiscent of 1990s British rockers Suede, mixed with the swagger of early Oasis, and dressed in better clothes" - AboutMinneapolis.Com

 

 

THE CUTTING ROOM FLOOR

Band:JED DAVIS
Album:THE CUTTING ROOM FLOOR
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

The bittersweet pop songs of New York native Jed Davis have been recorded by artists from Daniel Johnston to the Ramones. In July 2008, Davis recorded 14 songs for a solo album at Chicago's Electrical Audio with engineer Steve Albini under the working title Shoot the Piano Player. As is customary for Albini recordings, the entire album was captured live to tape as performed by Davis and drummer Joe Abbatantuono. Here's his first solo album in a decade, executive produced by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT, Black Moth Super Rainbow), with a cover by legendary psychedelic poster artist Victor Moscoso. The result is an atmospheric rock masterpiece in which lo-fi sounds nestle neatly into high-concept audiophile production numbers, and laughter and tears share a pillow.

 

 

UNDER THE STREETLIGHTS

Band:DAZZ BAND
Album:UNDER THE STREETLIGHTS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Soul/Funk/Disco

Best known for the huge 1982 hit "Let It Whip" and other funky party grooves from the early 80s, the Dazz Band certainly was taking a chance by making an album in 1995. Despite some lineup changes and the fact that funk was very dated by 1995, The Dazz Band manages to create a pleasing hip-hop soul album that has a surprising robustness to it. Though not the band's signature style, this album definitely sounds more like a carefully planned project, rather than a bunch of has-beens trying desperately to stay in the game. Back in the day funk-soul music from a classic group who created dance-able jazz” with songs like Tryin’ To get My Groove On & Under The Street Lights, this disc is in the Dazz Band tradition of very funky, jazzy tracks with great vocals.

AMERICAN RECLAMATION

Band:DUST ON THE BREAKERS
Album:AMERICAN RECLAMATION
Label:RAINBOOT
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

There is no debating that Dust On The Breakers have a refinement that marks out their debut release as a masterpiece amongst a raft of far less noteworthy musical outpourings that are no doubt cluttering your desk at this time. Core members of the band, Jeff Linsenmaier (The Czars), Jeff Davenport (d.biddle), and Tim Husmann (Crooked Fingers) – ably assisted by a rotation of contributors drawn in from The Fray, 16 Horsepower, Woven Hand et al - have been active as Dust On The Breakers since their initial meeting in 2006. Thankfully, four years on, the collision of understandably busy touring schedules and band commitments eventually culminated in the authoring of the emotionally electric American Reclamation. Recorded in Denver and mixed by acclaimed producer Martin Feveyear (REM / Crooked Fingers / Damien Jurardo / Jesse Sykes), the record is a musical purge; a wild abandonment of former loves and lovers, a forward march to new, uncharted hopes. Its opening track, "Charred Metropolis," introduces vocalist Anna Slade, her voice a demure echo against Linsenmaier's slowcore croon. Likewise, "Quiet Please" is an ambient exploration of atmospherics and rumbling piano parts and "Summer Rain Storms", a triumphant emergence from the record's beautiful, unfathomable depths.

VOLCANO

Band:OJM
Album:VOLCANO
Label:GO DOWN
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

The 10 tracks in this new album define OJM as the ultimate paragon for the Italian stoner-rock scene, conveying vibes that are consistent with the manifesto of this genre, yet sailing in neat strokes towards amazing bordering territories. The excellent starter “I’ll Be Long” was during this winter’s gigs had us all anticipating the band’s new turns, and yet noone could have imagined such an outcome: consistent and yet multi-faceted, enriched by the skillful production a guru such as Dave Catching, deus ex machina of the Earthlings (along with Pete Stahl). DC was also constantly present in Rancho De La Luna’s releases in the year 2000, from the Desert Sessions to Queens Of The Stone Age and Eagles Of Death Metal. “Volcano” is a record you should listen in one sit, enjoying the head-made single “Venus God”, the ultra-70s vibes of “Rainbow”, the psychedelic and liquid sound of “Ocean Hearts”, the dark atmospheres of “Wolf”, the aforementioned “I’ll Be Long” and the magnificent and dooming ending provided by “2012”.

A standout LP and a must for Fans of : Desert Sessions, QOTSA, Fu Manchu, Kyuss, Etc

MIGHTY AND SUPERIOR

Band:ISEN TORR
Album:MIGHTY AND SUPERIOR
Label:Shadow Kingdom
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Formed by the legendary Rich Walker (now in PAGAN ALTAR!), most notably from the classic UK Doom Metal band SOLSTICE (+ countless other bands/projects) and mastermind behind one of the best labels ever, The Miskatonic Foundation, he decided to branch out yet again and form this band, ISEN TORR! Originally released in 2003 on vinyl only, Mighty And Superior is the perfect name for this album because this is exactly what Epic Metal should sound like! In terms of quality and sound, think early IRON MAIDEN and classic era MANILLA ROAD. 2 Epic songs clocking in over 8 minutes a piece (CD version will be 3 songs and almost 25 minutes!!)! This is the first time it will be available on CD, and the CD version will have a bonus track (a demo version of "The Theomachist"). This EP will also be released again as a 10" 2 songs just like the original, but with brand new gatefold artwork provided by Martin Hanford that will be featured as the cover for the CD version (note: you can only see 1/2 of the new artwork here!)!

 

 

ENERGY VAMPIRES

Band:ENERGY VAMPIRES
Album:ENERGY VAMPIRES
Label:Shadow Kingdom
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

In 1989 ENERGY VAMPIRES rose out of the ashes of the cult legendary US Metal band SLAUTER XSTROYES whom I happen to think are one of the greatest metal bands ever. The only member from SLAUTER XSTROYES to form this band was lead vocalist Jonathon Stewart, which to me is still one of the best vocalists ever. Infact, he's right up there with legandary voices such as Rob Halford and King Diamond, if not better. The music is very much a continuation of legendary SLAUTER XSTROYES sound and even 2 songs from the SLAUTER days were re-recorded on this album. This was originally only released as a tape of 500 copies back in the early 90's. You can check out some great videos of them on www.youtube.com. Absolutely essential album with bonus tracks. One of the bonus songs was just recently finished in 2007 as an extra treat for you and me!

 

 

VALLEY OF THE KINGS

Band:RITUAL
Album:VALLEY OF THE KINGS
Label:Shadow Kingdom
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

This old cult band from the UK started playing in 1973 and it wasn't until 1983 until they got their first full-length out called "Widow". Strangely enough the band was referred to as WIDOW back then because apparently the records that were floating around had no RITUAL name on it. RITUAL blends an unusual mix of 70's heavy rock and 80's rock sounds from the N.W.O.B.H.M. with a real dreamlike effect. They're hard hitting old English Rock 'N Roll with a great clean singer/songwriter Gypsy Re Bethe that you might find yourself singing along to these infectious choruses. 10 years after "Widow" was released, came their 1993 album "Valley Of The Kings" picking up right where they left off in 1983. "Valley Of The Kings" sounds like it could have been released in 1984! Ritual have a unique way of blending hard hitting Rock 'N Roll riffs with melodic acoustic passages that take you out of this world. If you love old 70's rock and metal like DEEP PURPLE, JUDAS PRIEST, and old N.W.O.B.H.M. like ANGEL WITCH, DIAMOND HEAD, QUARTZ, HOLOCAUST, etc... the RITUAL experience is what you need! These re-issues include never before heard songs, new cover artwork that reflects the original art, plus the original cover art (so you can compare), an interview with Gypsy Re Bethe, lyrics, interesting pictures, and old photos. Here’s your chance to listen to and find out more about the mysterious RITUAL.

 

 

NINE INCHES OF GOD

Band:DEEP SWITCH
Album:NINE INCHES OF GOD
Label:Shadow Kingdom
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The New Wave Of British Heavy Metal in my opinion has basically 2 eras. The first era is from 1979 to 1981 which is considered the big boom of Heavy Metal. The 2nd era is from 1982 to 1986-ish. So taking us into the mid 80’s a band from the U.K. emerged called Deep Switch. They looked and sounded like no other band and that still holds true today. They never really took heavy metal too seriously, but that doesn’t mean their music wasn’t serious, because it was, although it was laced with a lot of humor. I think Deep Switch was more influenced by Monty Python than heavy metal. This is extremely unique and original material. Even if you’re not into obscure N.W.O.B.H.M., you should at least treat yourself to hearing this just for the experience. The release consists of 2 CDs, the first one being their classic album, while the 2nd disc is a collection of all their demos. They had a very short lived career, but a very longwinded tale of their history is written inside this massive booklet along with ton of band photos. This band is so original and unique I really couldn’t even point you to some other similar sounding bands.

STYGIAN SHORE is from Wichita, Kansas (USA) where their main influence and legendary band MANILLA ROAD is from. STYGIAN SHORE play Epic Metal/Heavy Rock similar to bands from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal and also take influence from more well known bands such as BLACK SABBATH and AC/DC. This official release (for the first time ever) features 12 brand new, never before heard songs, plus a re-recorded version of their hit song "Tidal Wave" that was originally released in the band's debut EP by Mark Shelton's Roadster Records back in 1984! This album was supposed to be released in 1989, but never was until now. It is a lost gem from the 80's, and certainly the band's best work and far superior to their well-received debut EP from 1984. This comes with a full biography of the band's history, beautiful full-color booklet with lyrics and band photos. Don't miss out!

Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The one and only IRONSWORD, hailing from Portugal is back with a very long anticipated album! Going strong for well over a decade now, IRONSWORD is the only band that is not only influenced by the Epic Metal masters, MANILLA ROAD, but they are the only band that sounds closest to MANILLA ROAD (somewhere in the Open The Gates/The Deluge/Mystification era MANILLA ROAD). Speaking of MANILLA ROAD, there will be a special appearance of Mark Shelton singing along with Tann (what an honor)!!! "Overlords Of Chaos" is going to be their 3rd full-length effort and to me sounds much more focused and diverse. The overall song writing is more developed, memorable, and with more catchy chorus lines than the 2 previous, but classic albums. This album from the amazing artwork provided by Martin Hanford to the last note on the album will blow all fans of Epic Metal away!

Band:THE ARTERIES
Album:DEAD SEA
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

THE ARTERIES are a bunch of guys from Swansea, Wales, who have been playing punk rock forever. Their new album, Dead Sea (follow up to last year's debut Blood, Sweat & Beers on Household Name) displays a myriad of rock influences, from Hot Snakes to Lagwagon by the way of AC/DC, but there’s no bullshit. No matter where they play – gardens, skate jams, garages, highrise flats or hotel rooms – they rock out and that’s why they’ve made it to the upper echelons of UK punk rock supporting the likes of The Bronx, Chuck Ragan, Fucked Up, Dillinger 4 and Propaghandi in recent years. They’re not trying to change the world; they’re just a bunch of friends who play music together and like to party. But they do it so well you’ll be hooked forever too.

“Blood, Sweat and Beers is an album that NOFX wish they could make.” - Punknews.org

For fans of Descendents, NOFX, Hot Snakes and AC/DC

 

 

LTD SPLIT 7

Band:KELLY KEMP AND THE BANGERS / EL MORGAN AND THE ARTERIES
Album:LTD SPLIT 7
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

A collaborative 4 way split from some of UK Punk Rock's leading lights. Not your average split 7”- Side A contains 2 tracks written and sang by ex NoComply front woman, Kelly Kemp, arranged and backed up by Cornish punk rock trio Bangers. On the flipside there's a further 2 written and fronted by El Morgan performed by The Arteries. Kelly and El have both played around the UK punk circuit for the past few years as solo artists in their own right as well as in their 4 piece folk group Livers & Lungs but this new 7” sees them getting back to their punk rock roots (if only temporarily) with impressive results! With little to no preparation all the tracks were pieced together over a couple of chaotic days at Holne Bridge Studios with Peter Miles (The King Blues, Sonic Boom Six, Crazy Arm). Not meant as a grand statement, this 7” is what it is; a documentation of 10 friends having a good time and creating music together.

Only 250 copies pressed, this 7” won't stick around for long.

For the first time the phenomen German Neo Psych has been honored on a compilation.

Here they are assembled on one cd for the first time !

“This compilation is most welcome! It also helps to clear pre-conceived notions about German music and show that Primal Scream, Cornershop and the Stone Roses were’n the only bands digging through old record crates in the 80s for inspiration” – Record Collector

SKAGOS PANOPTICON

Band:SKAGOS PANOPTICON
Album:SKAGOS PANOPTICON
Label:FLENSER
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Cascadian black metal band SKAGOS and Louisville’s Anarcho-pagan black metal band PANOPTICON have conspired to release this split CD. Both SKAGOS and PANOPTICON have become household names in the progressive North American black metal scene. The first two tracks are by SKAGOS while the second two are Panopticon’s.

SKAGOS’ contributions to this split evolve from their previous material. On the tracks: “Smoldering Embers” (12:33) and “Anamnesis II: A Dry, Sterile Thunder, Without Rain” (15:15) SKAGOS presents a cinematic experience that is filled with both Darkthrone-esque riffs, unapologetic clean vocals and everything in between. SKAGOS is comprised of two: Ray Hawes and Isaac Symonds. Since 2004, SKAGOS has released a demo, an EP and split with the band TOMHET, and the band has triggered a ridiculous amount of “buzz” regarding their extremely well-received full length Ást (2009).

PANOPTICON is comprised of one individual—“A. Lundr” who like SKAGOS does not play shows. While PANOPTICON is defiantly a black metal band, Lundr manages to incorporate other genres, including shoegaze, post-rock, crust as well as folk elements. On this recording Lundr strays more than ever into postrock territory. Pagan Flames released the CD version of PANOPTICON’s second record Collapse in 2009, later released on vinyl by FLENSER records in 2010. The latter version featured guest vocals by AMEBIX’S Rob “the Baron” Miller, cementing the ever more apparent connection between crust and black metal. The tracks on this release are part 2 of PANOPTICON’S opus “On the Subject of Mortality,” Lundr’s two part meditation on ones own mortality. Part 1 of “On the Subject of Mortality” is to be released by the label Pagan Flames as part of a split with naturalistic folk black metal band WHEN BITTER SPRING SLEEPS.

In spring 2006 DESTRAGE redefined his own style and recorded “Self Id Generator” promo produced by Ettore Rigotti from Disarmonia Mundi. In April 2007 the band, stronger and professional than ever and conscious of his potential, decided to record their first full lenght “Urban Being” which contains ten brand new amazing tracks. The band appears on the main music website and blogs and the “Urban Being” album is topic in Japan. And now ladies and gentlemen, they are really proud to announce the release of their second album entitled “The King Is Fat‘N’Old”. Produced, mixed and mastered by Ettore Rigotti at The Metal House studios, the new amazing, embarrassing, controverse, ridiculous, astonishing, unpredictable, insane, bad, very bad full lenght will be available in stores and digital download on the 4th of October 2010 via Coroner Records and will contain 12 brand new killing tracks.
