THE MUSIKLADEN RECORDINGS 1978 - LP/DVD

Band:RAMONES
Album:THE MUSIKLADEN RECORDINGS 1978 - LP/DVD
Label:SIREENA
Format:LP/DVD
Genre:Punk / Proto Punk

On September 13th, 1978, the RAMONES were guests in the TV-studios of Radio Bremen. It was the first TV-appearance of the band in Europel. For the at that time successful TV-series MUSIKLADEN they played 25 titles in about 50 minutes and left an ecstatic audience. Here is this unbelievable appearance - unabridged with all encores for the first time on Vinyl LP and DVD.

For the band it must have been quite a shock when they entered the stage at the TV-studio of Radio Bremen. Although the slightly ragged backdrop of MUSIKLADEN was okay to Joey, Dee Dee, Johnny and Marky Ramone, this was not valid to the main group of the audience. Styled and bored people sat in front of the stage as if they were a leftover from the last Baccara gig. Joerg Sonntag, today director and editor, former assistant of Mike Leckebusch, remembers in an interview (bonus-title on the DVD) that the night before the concert he strolled around the bars and pubs of Bremen and gave away free tickets. Therefore at least a part of the audience consisted of punks and rockers. The RAMONES did not taken aback due to this affected audience and played their concert with high professionalism and lots of fun. The performed songs came mostly from their first two albums. Finally they succeeded to leave an overwhelmed audience. For the American punk legends this first TV-appearance not only meant hard work but also the final breakthrough in Europe. Sireena Records now is publishing this gig with all encores for the first time on vinyl. The DVD with this legendary concert is included and comes with the album.

 

 

WRAY

Band:WRAY
Album:WRAY
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

Wray isn’t afraid to revel in repetition, churning (like butter) confident, seamless grooves firmly in the tradition of NEU!, Faust, or Can. Their shimmering, headphone-ready tones owe much to Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, and even The Cure, but without the crippling self-absorption of chillwave, dreampop, or whatever all the sad bastards are listening to this week. It’s music for an audience, for a rock show. It’s got a beat and you can dance to it. The band is Wray and the album is Wray and you can play it at a party and people will like it.

Press coming from Mojo, The 405, Echoes & Dust, Sleeping Shamen and The Line of Best Fit.

Recently completed a succesful US tour with Space Rock nutters Man Or Astro Man?

 

 

ANIMISM

Band:TANYA TAGAQ
Album:ANIMISM
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:world/new age

Fearsome, strident and elemental, Tanya Tagaq’s music is a genre unto itself. Tagaq’s unique vocal style may be rooted in traditional cultural form, but her expression also aligns with avant-garde improvisation, classical Expressionism and electronica influences, which inform her startling and powerful creative vision. This Inuk punk is known for delivering performances that are visceral and physical, heaving and breathing and alive. Her shows draw incredulous response from worldwide audiences, and Tagaq’s tours tend to jump back and forth over the map of the world. From a Mexican EDM festival to the Carnegie Hall, her music and performances transcend language. Tagaq’s 2014 Polaris Prize winning album Animism has rocketed her to the forefront of the international music scene, and is making waves for its originality, artistic importance and stunning uniqueness.

THE HUMBLE BEGINNINGS OF A ROVIN SOUL

Band:6` 10
Album:THE HUMBLE BEGINNINGS OF A ROVIN SOUL
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

6’10 is the folk/bluegrass incarnation of Tobin Bawinkel, frontman for Celtic punk stalwarts Flatfoot 56. In comparison to the hectic sounds of his other outfit, this is a more subtle journey through heartfelt and emotional journeys against the backdrop of ukulele, acoustic guitar, mandolin, and snare-brushed rhythms. Bawinkel speaks on the stripped-back sound and inspiration for this new endeavor: “There is nothing as vulnerable as a punk lead singer having to give up his distortion and volume to be laid bare in front of a crowd with just his wit and raw guitar playing. I wanted to revisit sounds from my childhood and return to simpler culture, one without pretension. The album has an overall theme of travel and journeying. Since I pretty much have lived the majority of my life on the road, this topic has a lot of symbolism for me.” Bawinkel and his company of three fellow band members are currently a part of the Smithwicks Pub Rock Sessions tour.

 

 

THRILL ADDICT

Band:PETER KERNEL
Album:THRILL ADDICT
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

You know when you do something that you know you shouldn’t do but you do anyways? And it turns out a mess so you say to yourself “I won’t do it again”; but after a while you do it again and again and again? This is “Thrill Addict”. The new Peter Kernel album is about taking risks in order to figure out how to shape one’s life. Mistakes, bad moves and consequences. It’s an album about speaking to one’s deepest being, the one we often hide inside. It’s about looking in the mirror; asking questions, giving suggestions and figuring out how to take care of the person you have in front of you and the people you have beside you. “Thrill Addict” is about the space between humans, and all the complications involved.

VISITORS

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

Masterwork from the fertile mind of French producer/composer/genius Jean-Pierre Massiera

First time vinyl reissue of 1974 doom-laden psyched-out progressive rarity

Color insert includes the Visitors story + an interview w/Jean-Pierre Massiera by Jean-Emmanuel Deluxe

Visitors was the brain-child of French producer/composer/genius, and enfant terrible Jean-Pierre Massiera. In 1974, he recruited a group of nineteen musicians (most notably jazz violinist Didier Lockwood, who made an indelible mark on Magma's 1975 live album), to record his latest compositions. Massiera had been impressed by violin-fronted jazz-rock acts such as the Mahavishnu Orchestra and Jean-Luc Ponty. He decided that his new psychedelic nightmare should be a concept album on the theme of extra-terrestrial contact. It is a truly startling mix of prog, psych, fusion and zeuhl elements, with complex arrangements and grandiose vocals. Massiera kept the basics: keyboards (Hammond organ and mini-Moog), guitar, and rhythm section. That said, he also insisted on a type of vocal polyphony, with voices singing in unison or performing call-and-response echo effects in the style of Vanilla Fudge. To push it further, Massiera peppered the album with special effects. Samplers were non-existent, which meant that he had to transfer location-recorded “found sounds” onto the master-tape by hand! The Visitors album which resulted from this musical alchemy is a dark and doom-laden psyched-out masterpiece: other-worldly, with outer space violins, burning guitar leads, layers of lysergic organ, and twisted choral voices creeping up on you from behind the shadows. It’s hardly surprising that it has attained cult status around the world!

 

 

McKAY

Band:McKAY
Album:McKAY
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

All-analogue pressing, cut directly from the original master tapes - Licensed from Ray Pierle with his full cooperation and support - Updated liner notes and exactly-transcribed lyrics

One of the "holy grails" of Indianapolis private-pressdom (surpassed only by Zerfas and Anonymous) available again in its original format! Ray "McKay" Pierle and his musically-adept brothers and friends partied, jammed and partied some more on Indy's south side throughout the mid-70's, forming a band (Loos) which managed to garner zero media attention at the time. However, Ray's trusty Teac fourtrack was always close at hand and countless hours of home recordings were induced onto magnetic tape, as well as a few songs laid down at a local studio. After a brief hiatus, the core members reconvened as McKay, and created their sole document, the 300-press "Into You" album (1978); the LP was given to friends and family and consigned in nearby record shops. A mere 15 years had to pass before the collecting world discovered the highly-personal songwriting, tight playing, and not-so-well-hidden West-Coast stylistic touches. A vinyl reissue was locally produced back then but it's long gone, so here's a new all analogue, master tape edition for a new generation to savor.

 

 

URGENTE - LP

Band:SANTA Y SU GENTE
Album:URGENTE - LP
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:world/new age

First time vinyl reissue of 1974 funk/jazz collector super rarity -

Bi-lingual insert explores Santa y su Gente in the context of the Chilean music scene

In the 1970's in Chile, recording anything was complicated. The state-owned IRT label was administered by the military. Domestic releases gave way to an invasion of foreign music. At most, a Chilean group like Santa y su Gente (Santa and his People) could hope for one appearance on television, or a very low-key event—this was the reality of the music world after the coup. Few groups had the good fortune to overcome the prevailing censorship: this was the case with Santa y su Gente (Santa and his People). Santiago Salas was a percussionist stepped in jazz. It was he who assembled a band with musicians of the caliber of Lautaro Rosas and Mario Lecaros. The latter was a powerful musician, who would appear in other jazz fusion projects in those difficult years, and then leave Chile together to do an impressive job abroad with his group Comet. The one and only album by Santa y su Gente, “Urgente,” was released by RCA/IRT/Alba in 1974. This album is very rare, and therefore not well known apart from the collections of a few dj's. But it contains all you can ask for—a scintillating brew of Latin Afro-jazz fusion, with something powerful to say and beats galore. Highly recommended! Comes with a bi-lingual insert which explores the story of Santa y su Gente in the context of the rich Chilean rock music scene.

 

 

HOMELAND - LP

Band:NATTEFROST
Album:HOMELAND - LP
Label:SIREENA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

Limited edition of 500 copies in golden vinyl!

Danish musician Bjørn Jeppesen is releasing his solo music under the name Nattefrost. It all started in 1995 with a cassette tape including some dark ambient tracks. But Bjørn developed his music and made it more melodic and rhythmic over the years. So far Nattefrost has released 11 albums, 2 EP’s and is included on over 15 compilation CDs worldwide. The new and 12th Nattefrost album entitled “Homeland” includes 6 tracks inspired by ancient Scandinavia. The music is a mixture of orchestral electronic music and vintage electronics with a lot of arpeggio sequences and melodic themes. Very much in the style of the NATTEFROST era 2003-2007.

FIREWALL

Band:RAMSES
Album:FIREWALL
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

40 years RAMSES - this must be celebrated and what is better than with a new studio album! The work includes 13 songs, in which the whole spectrum of musical expressiveness of this band comes to bear. That means: Timeless progrock that's focused on rhythm, intricate riffs and melodies. In the orchestration there is plenty of phantastic guitar work as well as a strong impact from a heavily equipped keyboard section. Another significant aspect of Tribute are the time-critical lyrics.

One of many highlights is certainly the long-awaited ( by many fans and played in numerous concerts ) classic "Look @ your neighbor", which is represented in two versions: One cut is recorded live at Balve cave and another version as a bonus track in a previously recorded version with the former singer Herbert Natho.

RAMSES are real Krautrock icons, their early albums "La Leyla"(1976) and "Eternity Rise" (1978) are still important, this brand new album shows the band as an outstanding part within the progressive spectrum.

 

 

LOOPINGS

Band:CINEMA
Album:LOOPINGS
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

CINEMA is the current project of Jürgen "Pöngse" Krutzsch, who already was a wellknown Krautrock size with his band TIBET in the Seventies. The project name fits, because the titles of this album run like movies in the mind's eye of the listener.

Pöngse - supported by Brigitte Grafe and guitarist Benjamin Peiser - knows to take this electronic soundtrack every cold and to create an incredibly groovy and trancy melange, reminiscent in some moments of Pink Floyd, but also wakes associations with Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Mike Oldfield and Schiller. Each title tells you in advance what it is and what musical elements are used. African, oriental and rock rhythms, with organs, choirs, guitars - a plenty of synthesizers and sequencers. For mastering ex-Grobschnitt musician EROC was actually responsible. The result is a musical journey around the world through the digital sound world of the continents that is unparalleled!

HEAVY WITH ILLUSION

Band:RST and LENZ
Album:HEAVY WITH ILLUSION
Label:METAL POSTCARD
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

THE SEVENTH ALBUM FROM NZ Experimental Guitarist Andrew Moon (RST) and first collaboration with Lenz lead singer of Shanghai band Goushen Interspersed with instrumental interludes the mood of the record constantly shifts. Familiar drone signatures appear but are re-contextualised by the human voice, heavy space stomping glam-doom riffs buoy spoken worded love-verses that soar as Lenz reaches for the cosmos in the rousing ‘Love’. Sung and spoken predominantly in her native tongue, Lenz’s songs offer a gorgeous counterpoint to Moon’s pulsing guitar modality, a potent meeting of musical minds that has reset the course for both artists as progenitors of the new transcendental music of the Pacific Rim.

 

 

TRAMA!

Band:JUGGERNAUT
Album:TRAMA!
Label:Subsound Records
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

Juggernaut got assembled and began to move on its trinkets in the winter of 2006 in Roma. The first step was to evoke a powerful and deep sound to embody the language of metal, the violence of hardcore and a gothic imagery. In 2006 we recorded and self-produced an EP at Hombrelobo Studio in Roma: "Facial Sacrilege: Ballads by the Fireplace”. In December 2007 the blog Neuroprison selected a track from our EP to be included in the compilation “Stones From The Sky”, which had the ambition of representing the Italian post-hc scene at its best. 2009 saw the release of our debut album “…Where Mountains Walk”, also recorded at Hombrelobo and published by Subsound Records (italian label home for bands such as Mombu, Inferno Sci-Fi Grind’n’Roll, Lili Refrain, Zippo, Osso) and shared the stage with Today is the Day, Red Sparowes, A Storm of Light, Amenra, Ephel Duath, Jucifer, Minsk, Slowmotion Apocalypse, Stereochrist, and several bands from the experimental and extreme underground international scene. The road taken, however, is uneven, full of bizarre and unexpected catastrophic events: some pieces are lost and new ones are incorporated. With them on board the coordinates change: the music is now completely instrumental and while maintaining its threatening and visceral features it has developed a cinematic taste and a propensity to evoke grotesque and meditative scenarios. Despite the shocks the forceful artifact never completely ceased to exist: after a long time spent in the rehearsal room writing new music and some test concerts, we entered Hombrelobo Studio to produce our new album. “TRAMA!”

It was a dark and stormy night and that was how Eraldo Bernocchi and the brave and fearsome messengers of MoRkObOt decided to meet the next day. They met while eating, what else? So it was inevitable that, in the throes of the extraordinary consequences of digestion, the four shady characters found themselves in a recording studio pouring their gastric juices on a guitar (which might sound like a bass), two bass guitars (which might sound like two guitars) a drum kit (which might sound like a pocket calculator) and a lot of newfangled electronic equipment (those might sound like a drum kit, or not) mixed together to form a mass of shapeless, slimy, creepy blob named OSSO. Sludge that drips electronic that expels dub that crash grind that melt jelly neurons. Sound penetrates flesh. Die laughing, laugh dying.

HYPERACTIVE JERK

Band:dDASH
Album:HYPERACTIVE JERK
Label:TSUNAMI ADDICTION
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Jb Hanak is back, oscillating between crazy indie-rock and mutant punk, to create a brand new direction in his own universe full of emotional vintage melodies, singular whisperings and truly agressive moments. An unique project that reminds us a fusion between Dinosaur Jr on helium or a '83 Beck during a LSD trip. An astonishing second wave of records after the mischievous « Alien Folk Trash » released in 2003 by Austrian record label Angelika Kohlermann / Mego.  

Sluggish and sumptuous, impetuous and nervous, his atmospheric rock quickly gives way to a cataclysmic post-hardcore brought back to life from 1991 garages. A melting-rock that gives birth to a deviant, poorly educated music from the Sub pop and Amphetamine Reptile first generations of followers.

 

 

SOLEIL

Band:AH VOIX BASS
Album:SOLEIL
Label:BESTE! UNTERHALTUNG
Format:CD
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

The French singer Dany Tollemer with her unique clear voice and Lutz J. Mays, bassist and composer from Nuremberg, have been found in 2013 at the suggestion of a friend musically. In its congenial interaction creates more than the sum of two musicians. The texts writes Dany Tollemer predominantly in French, sometimes in German or English. She interprets her poetry by her delicate beings with depth and fun, and paints, draws with her voice melodies, sometimes timid, quiet, sometimes determined and powerful. You can hear her smile!

Lutz J. Mays uses unconventional playing styles on different acoustic and electric bass instruments in order to bring mental images through his compositions in the outer world and matching color to text and mood, interpret and express. Moreover, percussion elements set fine accents. On their debut CD "soleil" they tell musical stories that move them, eg the story of the escape of a young African climbing with his hopes in a crowded refugee boat (Ado Africain), the dialog Dany's with their migraine (Migre haine).

 

 

BY OPEN PLAIN

Band:GOOD OMENS
Album:BY OPEN PLAIN
Label:BESTE! UNTERHALTUNG
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

The first album By Open Plain. It was recorded in 2013 in two parts at two different locations in the Finnish country-side through winter to summer. After the recordings Abel said goodbye to the band and moved abroad due some changes in life. Naturally the hunger for exploring some new terrain had grown and the rest of the group started a hunt for a new skeleton for the band. This is when a very talented drummer and an energetic character Jari came into the picture. Good Omens i.e. Patrik, Saara, Eemu, Minna and Jari has just signed with the German label Beste! Unterhaltung and are very excited to share their music out of Finnish borders.

 

 

SVEFNLJOD

Band:RAGGA GRONDAL
Album:SVEFNLJOD
Label:BESTE! UNTERHALTUNG
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

“Þjóðlög is without a doubt one of the best albums of the year. It respects the uniqueness of the Icelandic music tradition without being stuck in it… I haven’t heard such a truly Icelandic album for many years; not since Björk made Homogenic.” Helga Þórey Jónsdóttir, Morgunblaðið (The Morning Paper).

In early 2009 she expanded the project, putting together The Icelandic Folk Ensemble, in collaboration with her brother Haukur Gröndal and renowned guitarist Guðmundur Pétursson. The project the focused on rearranging, in as many colorful ways as possible, the beautiful stories found in Icelandic folklore, with a special emphasis on the rhythmic elements in the music. With the use of two percussionists, a guitarist, folk clarinetist and Ragga’s special interpretation of the ancient lyrics and folklore melodies, the group has found a fresh new sound inspired by the deep-rooted, mysterious and entrancing folk traditions of her home country.

 

 

YLJA

Band:YLJA
Album:YLJA
Label:BESTE! UNTERHALTUNG
Format:CD
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

Ylja was formed in 2008 by guitarists/singers Gígja Skjaldardóttir and Bjartey Sveinsdóttir in Reykjavík, Iceland. With a common passion for vocal harmonies and love for the acoustic guitar, the two friends embarked on a musical journey – always trying to expand and broaden their sense for creativity. Things took off immediately and Ylja was asked to do shows all over Iceland. As a couple of years passed, the duet was gaining live experience by the handful. Icelandic slide-guitarist Smári Tarfur joined the band in the fall of 2011 and, led by the strong creative vision of the two girls, Ylja’s sound expanded even more. With their dreamy vocal melodies, tasteful guitar riffs accompanied by Smári's unique lap-style slide playing - Ylja's sound was born!

More oportunities came to pass. Three straight Iceland Airwaves Festivals, the annual Bræðslan Festival in the incredible East Fjords, gigs with Grammy Award winner Glen Hansard and even a concert for the Icelandic President made Ylja one of the most exciting live acts of the cold country up North. Their debut album, simply called Ylja, was released in November 2012 – which caused a nice stir in Iceland and the bands popularity kept growing.

 

 

BLACK HONEY..

Band:IMPURE WILHELMINA
Album:BLACK HONEY..
Label:DIVISION
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

Fifth album for the Swiss posthardcore heroes! After having heavily toured in Europe for their last effort, the astonishing Prayers & Arsons, the 4 gentlemen have taken their time to write this new masterpiece of tortured black emotion. Still relying on the band’s unique style and always displaying its strong personality, this new album is however taking the fight to a whole different level. Smoother in terms of pure aggression, but stronger when it comes to blissful emotion, the music is now revealing its incomparable ability to drown the listener in a breathtaking sea of raw beauty. Never have you listened to something like this. And never will you again. This is IMPURE WILHELMINA’s new jewel. This is BLACK HONEY.

LOCK AND LOAD

Band:LOVEBITE
Album:LOCK AND LOAD
Label:VANITY MUSIC GROUP
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Having established themselves in record time as one of the UKs premier up-and-coming sleaze bands, Lovebite deliver a fusion of razor sharp musicianship with an uncharacteristic talent for writing a hook then slamming it down your throat in a manner that's not only powerful but powerfully addictive, as well. With the zeitgeist dictating that the relevance of an album as an art form is under close scrutiny, Lovebite's debut album Lock N Load defies the current trend and delivers on every level, making it an essential listen from start to finish. Tough but intricate and played by a band at the top of their game, this is the kind of record that will make its mark at a time where raw, ugly rock & roll is crashing back.

L`AORAISIE DES SPECTRES REVEURS

Band:GRIMOIRE
Album:L`AORAISIE DES SPECTRES REVEURS
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Four years on from their À la lumière des cendres debut, Quebecois black metallers GRIMOIRE return with a new, long EP, entitled L'aorasie des spectres rêveurs. L'aorasie des spectres rêveurs feels like a complete, total experience, bursting with windswept grandeur and icy-yet-fiery passion. GRIMOIRE might seem like a new band and thus this is the first proper introduction to the international black metal scene, but the band is the sole vision of erstwhile Forteresse/Csjethe member Fiel. Formed in 2010, GRIMOIRE reveals the expression of a wandering, lonesome soul searching for the path to spiritual elevation. Dreams, fantasy, and beauty summoned upon the darkest mourning, ashes of chaos and emptiness, the broken wheel of time, creation and destruction, a conscience invoked by nonexistence, a light raised in obscurity: all this is accomplished across L'aorasie des spectres rêveurs with emotive, melodic black metal of a pure 'n' proud vintage, yet one not boxed in by radition or cliche.

Album:EINKEHR
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

A starling work of shadow-draped mystery…VIVUS HUMARE formed in 2007 and released a demo, Prolog, in 2008, playing a number of concerts along the way and all the while diligently working on their debut album. Although plagued with various issues, at last Einkehr is upon us. Natives of Germany's rich black metal scene, VIVUS HUMARE comprise members of Mosiac as well as an ex-member of the late Alchemyst. With black metal as the base foundation, VIVUS HUMARE wander through various sonic catacombs - tense and pulsing one moment, doomed and desolate another, dynamic and fluent every step of the way - and take the listener on an emotional rollercoaster ride across epic tracks. Fittingly, such epic songs are befitting an epic storyline here. The spoken words that appear between recap the narrative and function toward its three main themes: "Der Schmerz weckt" (the pain arouses), "Auf morgendlichen Pfaden" (On morning paths), and at the conclusion, "Traum" (dream), the last part and its ending. Wake up to VIVUS HUMARE's Einkehr!

HELL COMES HOME - LP

Band:GREAT FALLS
Album:HELL COMES HOME - LP
Label:HELL COMES HOME
Format:LP VINYL
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

There are three certainties in this fucked up world: Death, taxes and Great Falls. Accidents Grotesque – the follow-up to the Seattle trio’s well-regarded 2011 full-length Fontanelle – is a beacon of truth for the godless masses, a dizzying blend of mathematical hardcore and grind in the vein of Narrows and KEN Mode. Guitarist/vocalist Demian Johnston and bassist Shane Mehling are tight bros from way back when and spent the better part of the last decade peddling noise in Playing Enemy and Hemingway; virtuosic drummer Phil Petrocelli (ex-Jesu) has been a fixture in Great Falls since Fontanelle came out. Demian and Shane’s old drum machine is now in a landfill.

All three of the members of Great Falls are creative professionals, so it follows that Accidents Grotesque acts like a giant canvas for the trio’s experiments with positive/negative space and finely-etched arrangements. The intensity of Great Falls’ frenetic live performances is echoed on this intense 37+ minute outpouring, the band’s most fully-realized recording yet. Accidents Grotesque is, in turns, angular and alienating, heart-wrenching and crestfallen. This album does a deep dive to find beauty in ugliness. This is no mean feat, but Great Falls is very much up to the challenge.

 

 

METALIZED

Band:SWORD
Album:METALIZED
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

A quarter of a century ago, in a town south of Montreal called Saint Bruno, Rick and Dan Hughes decided they wanted to be in a heavy metal band. The singer and drummer respectively were joined by guitarist Mike Plant and bassist Mike Larock to form the thrash metal quartet known as Sword. With their debut album, 1986’s ‘Metalized’, the fledgling band helped to define eighties metal in a way very few other bands managed. They went on to support Motorhead, Alice Cooper and were hand picked to open for Metallica on the ‘Master Of Puppets’ tour. Praise ultimately comes no higher…

Alongside Anvil, Sword flew the Canadian flag high during metal’s golden years. This is how they did it….

VIDEO ANTHOLOGY VOL 1 and 2

Band:BILL BRUFORDS EARTHWORKS
Album:VIDEO ANTHOLOGY VOL 1 and 2
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:2DVD
Genre:Prog Rock

Vol 1 – This 1’55” DVD is the first in a two volume anthology of concert footage of Bill Bruford’s Earthworks, one of the longest lived, best travelled and most original jazz quartets. This volume chronicles the band’s progress through the 2000s; volume 2 does the same for the 1990s. Filmed on tour in the United States in 2001, Argentina in 2002 and Germany in 2005, this DVD also includes three previously unrecorded tracks, and marks the debut performance of bassist Laurence Cottle and pianist Gwilym Simcock with the group.

Vol 2 - This 85-minute DVD is the second in a two-volume anthology of previously unreleased concert footage of Bill Bruford’s Earthworks , one of the longest lived, best travelled and most original jazz quartets. This volume chronicles the band’s progress through the 1990s from its electronic start to its acoustic renaissance; volume 1 does the same for the 2000s. The group was originated as a vehicle for Bruford’s unusual and innovative use of electronic percussion, and did much to challenge perceptions about what a drummer should, or should not, be doing in jazz. Filmed on tour in Germany 1991, Japan 1991 and Bulgaria 1999, Earthworks continues to offer a platform to the brightest and best young players, and has become a “potential model for the 21st century Jazz mainstream' (Chicago Reader ).

 

 

GOLE / ALMOST LIVE IN EUROPE

Band:RICK WAKEMAN
Album:GOLE / ALMOST LIVE IN EUROPE
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:2CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Gole’ is another of Rick’s soundtrack albums taken from the film of the same name which was a sporting feature on the 1982 World Cup. The album features Rick alongside long time percussionist Tony Fernandez and Jackie McAuley former guitarist of the legendary Irish rock band Them. The album has been unavailable for some time and this recording will be the first time it has seen a release on CD and has been re mastered for release which will prove popular with the large Rick Wakeman fan base.

Almost Live In Europe is a live album that has been re worked in the recording studio. Hence the title Almost Live In Europe. The band were recorded during the tour of Europe in Italy in 1995. The line up of the English Rock Ensemble is a strange one as it doesn’t feature a guitarist. On hearing the tapes Rick decided to “fix” the album in the recording studio which accounts for the honest title of the album.

 

 

ONE / A COAT OF MANY COLOURS

Band:BILL BRUFORD AND PETE LOCKETT
Album:ONE / A COAT OF MANY COLOURS
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:2CD
Genre:Prog Rock

ONE - Pete Lockett is one of the world's leading multi-percussionists. An authority on Indian percussion and an expert on tablas, kanjira, and bongos, he has played and recorded with countless artists including Björk, Peter Gabriel, Robert Plant, Jeff Beck, David Torn, Vikku Vinayakram, Selva Ganesh, Ustad Zakir Hussain, The Verve , Steve Smith, Nitin Sawhney, Afro Celt Sound System , the BBC Concert Orchestra , and David Arnold for the James Bond movies. He is one of the few UK musicians to be honoured with invitations to play in India in the highest circles of Indian classical musicians. Back in 1999 before he was well-known, Lockett toured with Bruford as Network of Sparks and they produced an inventive, culturebusting album called 'One.' The group was a percussion quintet covering many of the disciplines from around the world, in which the Ghanaian and North Indian Dhol traditions rubbed shoulders with progressive jazz and electronics. The music on One is an authoritative guide to the glorious colours available from more sophisticated rhythmic cultures than our own western one, and several of its ideas were carried on into the recent World Drummers Ensemble Summerfold dual-disc with percussionists Bruford, Chad Wackerman, Luis Conte and Doudou N'Diaye Rose.

A Coat of Many Colours - Four percussion masters, global leaders in their respective disciplines, come together for a highly-charged musical exchange; explosive, unpredictable, and unusual. Doudou Diaye Rose (Senagalese master of the sabar), Chad Wackerman, (Frank Zappa, Allan Holdsworth), Luis Conte (Madonna, Michael Jackson), and Bill Bruford (Yes , King Crimson, Earthworks ), are known internationally as The World Drummers Ensemble. The music includes pieces from all members, but also from Switzerland via Pierre Favre, Turkey via theHarem Percussion Group, America via Max Roach, and there's even a re-working of King Crimson's B'Boom. This Dual Disc CD audio/ DVD documents over an hour of their ambitious programme from concerts in Amsterdam and Brussels, and includes a complimentary 15- minute DVD on the reverse side.

KARMAGEDDON

Band:MUCK RAKER
Album:KARMAGEDDON
Label:ETERNAL SOUND
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Atlanta based MuckRaker, was formed by former BOILER (Mayhem/Atlantic recording artists) member, Will Price (Bass, Lead Vocals) in 2010. After several member changes, and the 2010 release of a 4 song EP entitled "Sound the Alarm", Ray Mulligan (Guitar, Vocals) joined the band in late 2010. Capo (Drums) joined MuckRaker in the early summer of 2011MuckRaker released their full length debut, “Big Black Bus”, in 2012.

"If you wanted to really strip MuckRaker down to its barest of bones, you would have to say that they are full of just great songs, and that’s basically the essence of why we’re all here. Closing track ‘Too Much Metal For One Hand’ perfectly sums this up, a song about spending their lives listening to their favourite music, pissing off people, drinking, hitting the road, and loving every heartfelt moment of it. Karmageddon is an exceptional record which should propel MuckRaker from their underground status, to serious contenders in the mainstream metal market. It’s an album to unite metal-heads, share a beer, and party!!! Peter Clark - Heavey Planet 2014

For Fans of CLUTCH, DOWN, COC, Helmet...

Recently reformed as duo, with Marco Serrato (bass, vocals) and Borja Díaz (Drums), ORTHODOX are coming back with a new studio album. The duo emerges now performing with different guests musicians on studio sessions, developing a new form of contemporary heavy metal meets extreme jazz meets doom, like no one. New tracks show more 'straight forward' concept on composing process. But this is just NOW, as ORTHODOX never compromises with certain sound or 'song concept' for so long. 'Axis' came from such different studio sessions, with a more straight and focus punch of avant-garde approach through heavy metal as only Orthodox know how re-doing it in every new album. 'Crown for a Mole' is the first single, taken from the new album. 'Suyo es el rostro de la Muerte', is the opening track, a fantastic instrumental intro in the most obsessive Frost-Crimson way possible!.

Orthodox is one of the best and most respected underground bands in Europe, with albums released on well respected labels like Southern Lord...500 only gatefold LP

Album:VARGARISS - LP
Label:SOULSELLER
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

GATEFOLD DOUBLE LP ON BLACK VINYL LIMITED TO 300 COPIES WORLDWIDE!

TOMBSTONES has taken up on their Norse heritage, evolving from their previous stoner-influenced sound, now descending into the dark side of the gloom. “Vargariis” finds the band leaning towards the bleak and desperate, assaulting the listener with their blackened, thunderous wall of fuzz and despair. Two years of intensive touring alongside bands such as Eyehategod, Church of Misery, Egypt and Witch Mountain have kept the band active, and the result unveils in the energy and live presence felt on “Vargariis”. The last couple of years Tombstones has appeared on the legendary Roadburn Festival, Desertfest, Freak Valley Festival, Muskelrock, Doom Over Leipzig, and tours in support of "Vargariis" in 2016 are in the works.
