VEXOVOID

Band:PORTAL
Album:VEXOVOID
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

There has been no death metal band in the genre’s history as bizarre, unique, and aesthetically engaging as Australia’s PORTAL. Whether it would be the band’s singular vision through their polarizing music, their otherworldly live show, or the visual imagery the band portray themselves as, PORTAL have incidentally, slowly building over the last ten or so years through this crawling culmination, set a new standard within the death metal scene and have given new meaning to the term “death metal” respectively.

It was a sound unheard of, that PORTAL emanated through the artistic surrealist death metal psychosis; weird rhythms and perplexing musical structures to create this cinematic soundscape of sheer terror and horror. Like a soundtrack to a Lovecraftian nightmare manifested, PORTAL would bring sonic plague and disease through three full-length albums which helped signal the future of death metal, the last one “Swarth” being the band’s most recognized album that was released in 2009. The follow-up to “Swarth”, entitled “Vexovoid”, sees PORTAL taking their sound even further with their biggest and most dense sounding album to date and taking their artistry to new levels unheard of and proving once again why they are the harbingers of the new coming dreadful age of death metal.

“Vexovoid” is one of the most anticipated and important death metal albums to be released in 2013 - PORTAL are now known as one of the most innovative bands in the death metal genre to emerge in the last ten years and one of the most important death metal bands today

 

 

ARRIVING ANGELS

Band:HELEN MONEY
Album:ARRIVING ANGELS
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Avant-Garde

The new album from avant-classical virtuoso cellist Helen Money (aka Alison Chesley) is entitled “Arriving Angels”. This is the third full-length album Chesley has recorded under the moniker Helen Money. She created Helen Money to showcase her compositions and her very uncommon approach on the cello, but also has quite the repertoire at her disposal. Aside from her solo work as Helen Money and her classical upbringing, Chesley has played on over 100 albums with such artists as Bob Mould, Disturbed, Mono, Anthrax, Broken Social Scene, Yakuza, Russian Circles, and Archer Prewitt among others. Chesley has also composed music for film and dance, including the soundtrack to the award-winning documentary Indestructible. Chesley was also part of the acoustic rock duo Verbow, releasing two albums on Epic Records in the nineties and toured nationally for seven years opening for such acts as Frank Black, Bob Mould, Counting Crows, Live, Morrissey, and Liz Phair. As Helen Money, Chesley has opened for bands as diverse as Mono, Earth, The Bad Plus, Nina Nastasia, and toured the U.S. and Europe extensively with Steve Albini’s band Shellac.

Nonetheless, “Arriving Angels” (which will feature artwork and design by Steve Byram, responsible for the design of “Reign In Blood” and “Licensed To Ill”!) will be one of the most intriguing Profound Lore releases to date. Recorded, engineered, and mixed by the iconic Steve Albini in Electrical Audio and also featuring Neurosis drummer Jason Roeder on four tracks, “Arriving Angels” is unique opus which comprises an intriguing mix of classical composition, experimental music, and progressive dirge-like metal, all displayed through the sole vessel of the cello.

SINGULARITY

Band:ROBBY KRIEGER
Album:SINGULARITY
Label:PLANETWORKS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Rock

First album in over a decade from legendary Doors guitarist Robby Krieger now available on Vinyl!

Whenever an album contains intros that stretch over the three-minute mark, it's a safe bet that the record can't be called "urgent," and so is the case with Singularity, Robby Krieger's first album in a decade. Like Cinematix before it, Singularity is a jazz fusion session in an old-fashioned sense, relying on Rhodes keyboards and lite funk grooves, sounding a bit like a cross between Jeff Beck's Blow by Blow and Steely Dan's Aja, graced with a little bit of Boz Scaggs' cool touch and a lot of Krieger's winding single-note lines. There may be a clear through-line from the guitar solo of "Light My Fire" to this, but that doesn't mean Krieger is playing it safe: on those intros he indulges in some fleet flamenco fingerwork, easily the most notable new wrinkle among the ten cuts here, but even when he eases back to his comfort zone, there's a fluidity in his fretwork that keeps things engaging

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:12 CLASSIC 45`S
Label:PLANETWORKS
Format:CD
Genre:Garage Punk

A great look back at Ace Of Hearts Records, the label who released the finest American Rock music during the new wave era.

There's no arguing that most of what Ace Of Hearts released in their classic era (1978-1980) was brilliant stuff. Label owner and legendary producer, Rick Harte, had a ear for great bands and an admirable commitment to quality. If all Harte ever did was record and release the first singles from the Lyres and Mission of Burma, he'd have earned a place of honor in the halls of the American rock community, and 12 Classic 45s, which collects the material from 12 noteworthy Ace of Hearts 7"s, confirms his knack for finding great music.

Genre:Punk / Hardcore

The ferocious post-punk 5 piece bands, Eagulls based in Leeds, England are pleased to share their 5 track EP on Canada’s prestigious punk label Deranged.

EAGULLS has shared the stage with Iceage, Cloud Nothings, Ceremony, and Fucked Up. The five tracks - “Coffin”, “Moulting”, “No If’s, No Buts”, “Cripple” and “Still Born”; Drawing from a wide variety of influences, EAGULLS manage to create something new, while still paying homage to classical punk.

"The five tracks - 'Coffin', 'Moulting', 'No If's, No Buts', 'Cripple (Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis)' and 'Still Born'; bring to mind melodic slacker rock such as Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr and Sonic Youth amalgamated with Eagulls earlier more brutal sound, influenced heavily by The Wipers, Rites of Spring and Black Flag. This is all delivered with a mischievous Blur-esque charm and The Replacements sense of reckless abandon." - The Fader

MYTICAL AND MAGICAL

Band:PAGAN ALTAR
Album:MYTICAL AND MAGICAL
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

From the wizard's bag of Cruz Del Sur's magic tricks here comes the re-issue of the long awaited youngest Pagan Altar album to date: “Mythical & Magical”. Re-awakening in 1998 with the official release of the early material that eventually came to the name of “Volume 1”, after 2 decades of artistical sleep, the growing fan base from all over the world witnessed Lords of Hypocrisy in 2004. Yet, in 2006 a new piece of Doom from its finest pioneers comes out of the dark in all its majestic splendour and we are very pleased to deliver it to you all once and for all.

Mythical & Magical, highly welcomed and praised from the public at its first appearance, contains songs that never saw the light in the first incarnation of the band, material written between 1978 and 1983, then re-recorded in 2005/2006 at the band's own Oracle Studios. With their music Brockley's hard-knock fellowship takes you to “lonely shores” to hear the Cry of the Banshee or in the presence of the Sorcerer and the Crowman, to witness the Flight of the Witch Queen and at the sacred night of Samhein, the night of the dead. Without any doubt a journey of both gentle and heavy traits that won't fail to leave signs in the listener.

 

 

THE BLOODSHED SUMMONING

Band:SACRED STEEL
Album:THE BLOODSHED SUMMONING
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

"Far from any cliché, at the same time knee-deep within any metal cliché. Sacred Steel have always been polarizing the metal audience. There’s no way that the earthshaking sound of the Ludwigsburg metal commando can leave a listener untouched. Love them or hate them: rarely a band on the metal scene in these days has met the same paradigm. Now, after fifteen years of battles for metal, Sacred Steel are ready to unleash their 8th studio opus. ‘The Bloodshed Summoning’ comes more than three years after the acclaimed ‘Carnage Victory’ and, well, it was worth the wait. Recorded in Poland and produced by the band itself in corporation with Bart Gabriel, the album kicks massive ass once again, showing a band stronger and angrier than ever, once again sporting a true metal attitude that most bands only could dream of. ‘The Bloodshed Summoning’ offers twelve tracks of pure skull-crushing metal, in the purest tradition of Sacred Steel. The pounding drums of Mathias Straub, the roaring bass of Kai Schindelar, the screaming guitars of Jens Sonnenberg and Jonas Khalil and the soaring vocals of Gerrit P. Mutz, once again screaming his heart out on lyrics loaded with blasphemy and rage: none of the trademark of the band has been forgotten, none of them failed to appear. And the same time, the new album could easily be spotted as the freshest and most variable in the whole discography of Sacred Steel: from pounding double-bass attacks to darkened mid-tempos, through galloping riff storms, ‘The Bloodshed Summoning’ offers everything to delight any Sacred Steel maniac and true metal lover. And again, it’s an album far from any possible compromise. You will love it or hate it. Yet, it won’t leave you untouched" (Sandro Buti / Metal Maniac)

Very well-known German band, previously on Metal Blade and Massacre Records.

Wonderful packaging, 20-page comic-like booklet.

 

 

LOVE IMPLIED

Band:STEWART FRANCKE
Album:LOVE IMPLIED
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

"Stewart Francke makes beautiful music." -- Bruce Springsteen

Stewart Francke releases Love Implied, his follow up to 2011’s comeback cd Heartless World, a record that won Francke new fans worldwide via his scorching duet with Bruce Springsteen, “Summer Soldier.” In addition to the duet with Springsteen, Francke and his band carry the momentum of having performed with Bob Seger, Warren Zevon, Chicago, Steve Earle and Stevie Winwood. Love Implied started out as a very simple, acoustic music,” Francke says, “played by real people, with real emotional input. But then it was layered into this lush Wall of Sound with acoustic guitars, a lot of slide playing, and vocal harmonies. I love the sound of this record.” As the title of this new record connotes, the new cd has a lot to do with how adults experience each other in love, or in a marriage, or in a complicated relationship. “I'm trying to cover a lot of ground when it comes to love implied or otherwise on this record. I just hope my fans love the varied styles and stories, as usual.”

HIGH EXPECTATIONS

Band:WHITE FANG
Album:HIGH EXPECTATIONS
Label:METAL POSTCARD
Format:LP
Genre:Punk / Proto Punk

Metal Postcard Records is very excited to bring you a slice of the best vinyl you’re going to hear in the next decade by Portland (OR’s) White Fang. The US press will quote you lot’s of obscure underground bands that you’ve never heard of to try and explain how they sound. It’s much easier than that. Take one part Happy Mondays, one part Fall “Live At The Witchtrials” then throw in the anarchy of the Butthole Surfers and a bit of Cheap Trick ! and you have one of the most perfect bands on planet earth Not only do they have a sound that rock stoner heads have been waiting for since the MC5 their live shows are smart, sharp and stoned all at the same time. No self indulgent stuck over the bong songs, instead if it’s longer that 4 minutes there must be something wrong. High Expectations is an album that makes you want to be 15 all over again and again and again....... And the best thing of all they do it all themselves....

 

 

HOLLOWED

Band:CRIMINAL CODE
Album:HOLLOWED
Label:Deranged
Format:7" VINYL
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

It used to be easy to describe Criminal Code. From the onset, they came across as straightforward sounding mid 80s Midwest hardcore styled three piece with Taiga on guitar Andrew handling the basslines. Hook filled and moodily earnest, proudly wielding a love for Husker Du. Crim Code quickly became favorites of the Northwest hardcore scene. After a handful of west coast tours and a couple of limited self released rarities, Crim Code added Miles on second guitar and Jawsh on drums.... This is where the comparisons to other acts ends.

Having saw them play three times in the past 10 days I can only describe them as themselves. Once in front of a group of black clad doom punks they came off as a tightly wound psychedelic nightmare, as if My Bloody Valentine grew up playing Middle Class covers. The next, in a room filled with knucke dragging skinheads the doomiest pop you could imagine at a deafening level. The third still a pounding set of shouted agit-punk anthems that could have been the best record SST never released. With this, their third vinyl release, and the first for Deranged they continue to push the boundaries of what it means to be a a modern hardcore punk band.

 

 

FUCK YOU FOREVER

SYSTEMATIK

Band:SYSTEMATIK
Album:SYSTEMATIK
Label:Deranged
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Raw Hardcore from Vancouver B.C with a solid D-Beat backbone that doesn’t bore you to tears. Searing guitar work and a vocalist that can actually manage to convey his live frustration through recorded media, a rare feat. A distinct sound is hard to pinpoint. Influences range all over the place from Death Side to Poison Idea. Everyone will tell you something different, make your own judgement. Features members of Unlearn and Vacant State - After the break-up of Unlearn the guitarist set out to get another project started as soon as possible, actually only within a few days he and Isaiah (vocalist) started working together. After a few months, a few bassists and a few drummers, a solid lineup developed and a demo was recorded in Dec.2011. The S/T LP was recorded in april.2012 in Portland with Stan Wright while touring the West Coast.

 

 

PREGNANCY SCARES

Band:PREGNANCY SCARES
Album:PREGNANCY SCARES
Label:Deranged
Format:7" VINYL
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Pissed off punk from Ottawa, Ontario. Building from the chaos of their 2011 demo tape, Pregnancy Scares’ debut 7” represents a band that have spent the past year honing their craft without sacrificing the relentless rhythms, vocal venom, or “Born Against aggro-in-the-raw, art-wracked Circus Lupus styling”, that’s become synonymous with Pregnancy Scares since their inception.

 

 

TOUGH TO BREATHE

Band:NO MORE ART
Album:TOUGH TO BREATHE
Label:Deranged
Format:VINYL 7"
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

No More Art is comprised of people from rather dissimilar backgrounds in music, but the elements are easy enough to lay out. There are the surf-drenched guitars, the complementary female vocals, and the rock ‘n’ roll frenzy of X (Los Angeles), some of what has been brewing in Denmark and Sweden over the last decades with bands like MASSHYSTERI / VICIOUS, and NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS, but also with lots of melody and leads that is reminiscent of 80's LA bands like SOCIAL DISTORTION and ADOLESCENTS, all infused with a unique quality of their own.

Lead singer Milo has been around for some years now as a singer song writer in her own solo project ROSIE TIE. Drummer Juan Miguel has been busy on the heavier side of music, playing guitar in bands like LOS DOLARES, LEADERSHIT, ETACARINAE, and PELIGRO!, in Barcelona over the past decade. Will has also done time in many bands over the past decade with groups BORN/DEAD, DESOLATION, SUICIDE BOMB, DOPECHARGE, and most recently Portland's RED DONS.

 

 

RUINS.

Band:CASANOVAS IN HEAT
Album:RUINS.
Label:Deranged
Format:VINYL 7"
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Casanovas In Heat are a punk band from Boston, MA. Formed in 2010, neighborhood chums, Davy & Con (also of MALE NURSES) decided to take a whack at high-energy, sweat-induced, melodic punk that they had been screwing around with since they were teenagers. They recruited fellow mavericks, Steve & Sean, to complete the dream team. Sparked by a wide-range of influences, the Casanovas want nothing more than to turn every day into a night, and every night into a crusade. Think the REPLACEMENTS and NAKED RAYGUN mix matched...

 

 

WOLFHEAD

Band:WOLFHEAD
Album:WOLFHEAD
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

You’d think that a band born in 2008 after some drunk rehearsals in between black/death outfit BETWEEN THE FROST guitarist Iosue and guitar-wizard-cum-producer and leader of old-school death-metal warlords GRAVEYARD would only mean buzzsaw guitars, grinding drums and putrid production wouldn’t you? Except that WOLFHEAD won’t let be pigeonholed that easily and Javi himself step furiously on any possible categorisation: “It lies somewhere rock n’roll, heavy-metal, stoner, doom, grunge, black-metal, whatever! A song sounds like BATHORY but then moves on to TROUBLE territories, then towards MOTÖRHEAD highway before taking a left-turn somewhere in between old ENSLAVED and DARKTHRONE… IN a way, it’s the exact opposite of GRAVEYARD that stands for a very specific sound. For WOLFHEAD, whatever sounds cool to our ears will make it, let it be keyboards, harmonized vocals, strange instrument or even harmonica!” Confused? You betcha. And don’t you forget some ALICE IN CHAINS, BLACK SABBATH or SOLITUDE AETERNUS thrown in the bin for good measure…

Recorded in Barcelona in Javi’s own Moontower studios in between October 2008 and December 2009, such a mix bag could easily have been a recipe for disaster without the proper vocalist to pull it off. Enter Ivan, the already legendary frontman of the sadly defunct GREAT COVEN, whose legacy is now being carried by WARCHETYPE: he might be the only guy in this galaxy capable to have one foot in Birmingham circa 1970 and the other one in Valhalla along Thor the god of thunder, as exampled on the eight minutes plus epic, “Sons Of Asgard”. Or pull off such a relaxed and yet fitting performance for the band’s surprising entirely acoustic rendition of PINK FLOYD’s ode to their fallen brother Syd Barrett, “Wish You Were Here”.

THE STORM HAS COME

Band:PREACHER AND BEAR
Album:THE STORM HAS COME
Label:Blackstarfoundation
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

The Storm Has Come”. That’s the title of Preacher and Bears second album. The album will be released in February of 2013, but already the expectations are high on the Gothenburg folk pop duo. There’s been two years since they released their debut album “Suburban Island”, partly produced by the legendary Ebbot Lundberg from “The Soundtrack Of Our Lives”. Since then Elin Piel and Fredrik Petterson has taken their time to really emerge as a band. The playfulness heard on their debut album is still there, but the band has sharpened their knives and taken on a more radical point of view. The messages are more a smack in the face than a slap at the wrist. Still there are some tracks that completely hit you in the heart with stories of love and longing. Even though the production is bigger than on the previous album “Suburban Island”, you can still hear the trade marked guitar of Fredrik Petterson and the intriguing vocals of Elin Piel. The tracks build off each other and create a weave of stories about injustice, sadness, love, struggle and hope. Elin and Fredrik mix complete hopelessness with utter joy. This is one of the bands fortes.

If PJ Harvey and The Cave Singers had a love child, it would probably sound like Preacher and Bear.

THE BURNING TIMES

Band:THE SAWYER FAMILY
Album:THE BURNING TIMES
Label:WASTED STATE
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Drawing inspiration from the gloomy climate of the Pacific Northwest, The Sawyer Family have played over 600 shows in nearly every state since 2009, all the while appealing to punk, rock, metal and roots rock fans alike.

Constantly refining their ever evolving, sometimes unpredictable song writing, The Sawyer Family's refusal to be pigeon-holed has become their trademark and in many ways what their fans have come to expect from them. Songs marked with huge dynamic shifts, sweeping vocal melodies and duelling guitars often draw comparisons to Queens of the Stone Age, Corrosion of Conformity and early Metallica. While these are all influences, singularly unique elements like distorted bass violin solos and bowed classical passages distinguish them even from these entities.

The Sawyer Family is currently preparing for their first European Tour in which they intend to expand their growing fan base of people yearning for something truly unique.

 

 

EARLY MORNING SCUM

Band:THREE BLIND MICE
Album:EARLY MORNING SCUM
Label:PALE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Early Morning Scum was recorded in December 2011, during a week of hard work in the cold Berlin winter. The band choose the Schaltraum Aufnahmestudio at the Funkhaus, the former headquarters of the GDR's radio located in an industrial area by the Spree river which used to be part of East Berlin. This location provided the perfect backdrop for the 12 songs, which live on the natural reverb of the recording room and capture the haunting beauty of the half deserted building with its never ending corridors. Loud, dark, swampy, the album could be described in several ways. The initial sonic explosion of spacey guitars of 'Asphalt Jungle' make way to retro sounds -- in the style of Link Wray -- and Hammond organs both sensual and mournful, of 'Bug Under Glass' and 'Devastation Town'. A fascination for dark Americana and Southern Gothic themes transpires from 'Dust Devil' and 'Little Animals', with their desert landscapes. Then again violent, hard-boiled fiction sets the stage for the black’n’roll of 'Three Storey Girl'. 'Knuckles' instead pays tribute to the time that the band spent touring with Lydia Lunch and Gallon Drunk's Big Sexy Noise. The sky of Early Morning Scum brightens up with 'Slow Motion', a reverb drenched shoegaze jewel, and it turns grey again with the amphetaminic 'Golden Spiral Kill'. Eventually, the storm breaks out with the chaotic madness of 'Half Seas Over'. The album ends with the twisted gospel-like song 'Jesus', a long, intimate country song. Recorded by Tom Schwoll, of Jingo de Lunch fame, the album features the Australian born, Berlin based, Chris Hughes (Hugo Race, Fatal Shore, These Immortal Souls) on drums and percussions. On a deep level, Early Morning Scum is definitely a Berlin influenced album, although most lyrics draw inspiration from American novelists such as Bunker, McCarthy and Mailer.

 

 

SO GEHT ES JEDOCH NICHT

Band:FLEISCHDOLLS
Album:SO GEHT ES JEDOCH NICHT
Label:PALE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Keep pushin’ them buttons – Fleischdolls come from a headstrong future. But they never forget the past: At a party with the Goldenen Zitronen, DAF, Sigue Sigue Sputnik and distorted synths they’d pretty much enjoy themselves.

According to Berlin-based Fleischdolls mastermind Lukas „mntmn“ Hartmann, the techno-punk-no-wave work’s romantic highlight is the hookline of the song „Lass uns alles zerstören“, which emphasizes Fleischdolls' desire for demolition: „Komm doch mit, und lass uns alles zerstören!“ („Come with us, and let's destroy everything!“) For Adrian „the kaiser“ Kaiser, the band’s Hamburg-based vocalist, for futuristic guitarist Sebastian „hypo“ Burkhart and for the world’s tightest synth bassist Daniel „ledentist“ Zahn, denying the status quo is the main theme of life. There are many possibilities – but this is not how it works. The system has to be hacked and rebuilt: less heteronormativity, less surveillance, less fear of the world, more good haircuts, bass and internet. That kind of future is what the Fleischdolls stand for – like a brand name.

Label:MORINGA MUSIC

Wedding is the electrifying new release from AJ Holmes and The Hackney Empire, a band who have been causing musical mayhem wherever they go. Based in the East End, and drawing inspiration from the cultural melting pot that is London, AJ Holmes and The Hackney Empire is a potent brew of one part Afro-pop, one part soukous, a dash of calypso flair, topped off with a soupçon of Pearly Queen. This eclectic mix has produced a fresh, innovative and raucous sound that bursts out of the speakers and wraps itself around your body.

Wedding is the debut album for AJ Holmes and the Hackney Empire, but word has already been spreading like wildfire. Having pricked the ears of white-hot electro producer duo Radioclit (M.I.A, The Very Best, Amadou & Mariam) to become their resident house band at their Secousse club, they released their debut single 'Fraudian Slip' in 2011, (also produced by Radioclit) to critical acclaim.

He takes part in collectives as Rockwave or Jarring Effects where he is apprehending his desires, his ideas. Self-taught, he begins to sample his own guitar and then drum’s compositions, to grind the sound which ensues from it to shape the foundations of a music which imagines itself, which looks. Sound history are running together, with the sensibility as key word.

Album:PLUNGE INTO OBLIVION
Label:PUNISHMENT 18
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

In late 1991 Mathias Adamsson, Moses Shtieh, Jimmy Sjöqvist and Johan Svensson formed the Swedish band Vermin. Vermin released their first 7 track demo in March 1992 and the response was very good. One track from that demo was featured on a compilation CD called Requiem – Morbid Symphonies of Death. Late 1992 the band recorded their now legendary demo “Life is Pain”, and one track from that demo ended up on the Swedish magazine Close-Up compilation CD, Extreme Close Up Vol 1. The band followed up their underground success and quickly recorded a 7 track demo called “Scum of the Earth”. The demo was printed in 1000 copies and was sold out immediately. The band was compared to other Swedish Death Metal acts like Entombed, Dismember, Grave and Unleashed. The new Swedish label Chaos records was so impressed that the band was signed and Vermin’s three demos was in July 1994 released as the CD “Obedience to Insanity”. Shortly after the release of the CD Johan left the band but was quickly replaced by David Melin. The sales of “Obedience to Insanity” was very good so the label and the band decided that it was time for a new CD. The band entered the legendary Sunlight studio in the autumn of 1994 with Fred Estby (Dismember) and Tomas Skogsberg behind the desk. The result “Plunge Into Oblivion” is a compact sounding metal production which fulfills all technical and lyrical expectations of the band. 2013 REISSUE.

OMEN

Band:ANTESTOR
Album:OMEN
Label:Bombworks
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Hailing from Norway, Christian black metal's most prolific and infamous band returns with the 2012 release of Omen, a beautifully anti-blasphemous epic masterpiece! Formed in 1990 under the name Crush Evil, Antestor means "testify" or "call to witness" in Latin. During the 1990s they received serious death threats from black metal titans Euronymous, Varg Vikernes and Faust. Persecution only intensified their efforts, and the band is credited for starting the northern European Christian extreme metal scene. In fact, in an almost ironic twist of fate, Jan Axel Blomberg (better known as Hellhammer, the drummer for Mayhem) was Antestor's session drummer on two releases. The band's brand of black/doom metal carried such a reputation that Antestor is the only Christian band to have an album released by Cacophonous Records, home to bands such as Dimmu Borgir, Sigh, and Cradle of Filth. The masters of skull crushing metal riffs have blown our minds with each successive release for 22 years. After seven years in the making, prepare for the most insane, the most creative, and the most devastatingly gorgeous extreme metal album of the band's illustrious career.

For fans of Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, A Hill To Die Upon, and Septic Flesh!
