KUDOS TO YOU!

Band:THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Album:KUDOS TO YOU!
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

2014 brings Kudos To You!, the 7th full length studio album from Seattle’s The Presidents Of The United States Of America. Since 1994, PUSA has been spreading their skewed and joyous brand of pop to audiences the world over. PUSA has no idea where this album came from.

As “full-time part-timers”, PUSA had thought themselves to be “post album”, enjoying a relaxed and limited touring schedule combined with liberal hammock time. When they booked two days with their longtime producer and FOH engineer MARTIN FEVEYEAR last October there were no expectations, and no material other than Singer Chris Ballew’s notebook. WHOOPS things got out of hand, and a month later Kudos To You! was tracked, necessitating changing their annual PUSAFEST shows in Portland and Seattle to record-release shows. Zing!

Kudos To You! is a happy mix of old, new, and brand spanking new, that should hit right at the soft tissue of PUSA fans old and new. Ok, mostly old, but still it’s a fun listen and should eventually be purchased by everyone on the planet.

TEN YEARS SUPER BONUS SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Band:THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Album:TEN YEARS SUPER BONUS SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY EDITION
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Since 1994, The Presidents Of The United States Of America have been spreading their skewed and joyous brand of pop to audiences the world over. They are to date the only band to emerge from Seattle’s criminally under-exposed music scene. They are musical geniuses, and often write their own press releases. They have lost multiple Grammies.

Rescued from a heavily guarded time capsule bunker fortress on Mount Rainier, here is the last remaining cache of The Presidents Of The United States Of America’s eponymous debut in the rare TEN YEAR SUPER BONUS SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY EDITION. This record has sold four million-ish copies worldwide, and features the mega-hits LUMP, PEACHES, and KITTY and has a handsome sticker on the shrink-wrap telling you as much. There are thirteen bonus tracks not on the original, including outtakes from the sessions, demo versions, and recorded versions of live staples. As if that weren’t enough, there is also a DVD enclosed with eight (8!) videos and band commentary. Priced as a regular cd, this is a phenomenal…nay, a generational bargain and should cause widespread panic at record shops worldwide...

 

 

UNVEIL THE MYSTERY 2007-2012

Band:MYSTERY
Album:UNVEIL THE MYSTERY 2007-2012
Label:UNICORN DIGITAL
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Canadian act MYSTERY are one of contemporary Progressive Rock's biggest bands, and last year's "The World Is A Game" album firmly cemented their reputation as one of the natural heirs to the legacy of genre legends such as Yes and Rush.

CATHARSIS ABSOLUTE

Band:AVICHI
Album:CATHARSIS ABSOLUTE
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

AVICHI is the sole vision of black metal multi-instrumentalist Andrew Markuszewski (aka Aamonael), who was an initial founding member of popular and notorious U.S. black metal act Nachtmystium, a band in which Markuszewski has made several appearances in through Nachtmystium’s existence. Markuszewski also is one of the main musicians in his other main band, namely blackened sludge metal abomination Lord Mantis.

But AVICHI is Markuszewski’s outlet to show that he is one of America’s underground visionaries in its black metal scene. Forming in 2006 and releasing the debut album “The Divine Tragedy” only showed promise at what AVICHI had to offer. But it wasn’t until AVICHI’s Profound Lore debut, “The Devil’s Fractal” where awareness would build even more, awareness in which will go that much further with the new AVICHI album “Catharsis Absolute” in solidifying AVICHI as one of the premiere U.S. black metal bands today.

“Catharsis Absolute” sees AVICHI create a wholly new expression of virulent yet enlightening sophisticated black metal and sees Markuszewski create his most accomplished musical work to date.

 

 

LABYRINTH CONSTELLATION

Band:ARTIFICIAL BRAIN
Album:LABYRINTH CONSTELLATION
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

NY based death metal band ARTIFICIAL BRAIN was conceived in 2011 by Revocation guitarist Dan Gargiulo and ex-Biolich vocalist Will Smith (Biolich, coincidentally being the former band where several members would end up forming CASTEVET upon Biolich’s break-up). After conceiving a demo and a two-song EP, ARTIFICIAL BRAIN have unleashed their devastating debut album “Labyrinth Constellation”, and album which shall be a platform for such a band to be recognized amongst the elite amongst one faction of the U.S. death metal scene.

Like past bands such as Nocturnus, ARTIFICIAL BRAIN bring a sci-fi element into their brand of twisted guttural death metal. More or less thematically and aesthetically (as witnessed on their stunning album cover painted by Paolo “Madman” Girardi), the sci-fi themes that run rampant throughout ARTIFICIAL BRAIN’s music complement the complex brutality that ARTIFICIAL BRAIN offer with their brand of cosmic dissonant dark death metal.

Overall, “Labyrinth Constellation” (recorded, mixed, and mastered by Colin Marston of Krallice, Gorguts, Dysrhythmia etc. in his Thousand Caves) will serve its purpose with its own unique take on the death metal genre and an album that will fit accordingly alongside the Profound Lore’s twisted death metal contingent with such bands as PORTAL, MITOCHONDRION, GRAVE MIASMA, and ABYSSAL.

NO 2

Band:SAMMAL
Album:NO 2
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Sammal is that good old friend you've never met. Free from the confines of a scene or part of any genre wave, like the wild moss their name translates to. They have conjured a rare album, quite of its own but nostalgic in only the best way. A band that manages to capture a sense of golden moments in Finnish music, naturally and without pretensions. Vocals that soar confidently and warmly with beautiful lyrics which, though sung entirely in Finnish, are utterly relatable due to the passion in the voice and beauty of the compositions, made more arcane by the sentiments the sound evokes. Lyrics translated inside the booklet are a magic discovery of a band that inspires more about their culture and heart than most well known Finnish bands today. "Sammal began when we were staying at our singer's summer cottage one autumn, listening to classic rock and prog LPs with a barely functioning vintage turntable. We had played in English language bands for some years, and that night we discussed our common interest to write songs in our native language and to follow the freely flowing creative spirit we heard on these records. We wanted to use music and the Finnish language to paint landscapes that are completely alien to modern day stress and musical pigeonholing. Free association and freedom of expression are still at the core of Sammal", comments guitarist/keyboardist Jura Salmi.

SPECTRES

Band:BAST
Album:SPECTRES
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Conan guitarist/vocalist Jon Davis has announced that the first album to be released through his newly launched Black Bow Records label will be the debut full‐length from innovative UK black metal/doom hybrid Bast. Bast’s sound is a very interesting one indeed, drawing an equal amount of influence from avantsludge outfits like Neurosis and Eagle Twin as they do progressive black metal like Altar Of Plagues, Winterfylleth etc. The trio don’t fit comfortably in either the black metal or doom niches however, with their bleak yet psychedelic vibrations existing in a world of its own. Bast have already shared stages with the likes of Nachtmystium, Ufomammut and A Storm Of Light, so it was only a matter of time until Conan’s Jon Davis caught wind of their extraordinary sound.

 

 

PALINGENESIS

Band:NEBELUNG
Album:PALINGENESIS
Label:TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

More than two years on the making, the release of PALINGENESIS defines a new era for NEBELUNG. Where its predecessors had been singing the hymn of autumn and night by the means of simply structured melancholic folk songs, PALINGENESIS takes on a different approach, transcending the boundaries of lyrics and song, sparing light and reason, and letting the music take on a direct and unaltered way to the depths of the subconscious. PALINGENESIS is a deep and transforming listen, with tracks built up like Mantras, tucking the listener into a dense and detailed tapestry of subtly woven, intertwining melodies and drones, rich in detail and structure, incorporating such a variety of acoustic instruments as both classical and steel stringed guitars, cello, accordion, indian harmonium, hammered dulcimer, glass harp, percussion and voice.

 

 

TUMMO

Band:SHABDA
Album:TUMMO
Label:ARGONAUTA
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

Shabda was formed in 2012 in northern Italy by Anna Airoldi, Marco Castagnetto and Riccardo Fassone, who had previously worked together in Thee Maldoror Kollective. With the inception of Shabda, the trio has started crafting meditative, repetitive sounds, with the aim to fuse Indian music, doom metal and minimalist exploration into a trance inducing, often somber droning ritual. Their first record, “The Electric Bodhisattva”, was released in 2013 by Paradigms Recordings. Musically interpreting the perennial tradition, the new album TUMMO focuses on kundalini alchemy by means of deep guitar tunes, microtonal intervals and ritual documents recorded in Varanasi, Sarnath and Amber.

Recommended to fans of Earth, Bong, Amon Düül, Ash Ra Tempel, La Monte Young.

 

 

INSTINCT

Band:HOLLOW LEG
Album:INSTINCT
Label:ARGONAUTA
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

U.S. sludge monsters HOLLOW LEG re-release their album “Instinct” under the flag of ARGONAUTA Records. The band, a duo now quartet, is an enormously toned groove engine hailing from the highways between Deland and Jacksonville, Florida. Their first full length, Instinct, as a duo of guitar and drums from late 2010 and released independently (now completely sold-out), was an action blown forth by their inherent and creative strengths housed within its lyrics and riffs. Since their incarnation as a duo, Hollow Leg has held live performances akin to Sleep and Eyehategod cooperatively steering a runaway freight train through the center of a volcano. Instinct is now again available for a full new life. A massive assault of slow head-banging music!

CELLAR GROOVE

Band:DAVID FATHEAD NEWMAN
Album:CELLAR GROOVE
Label:CELLAR LIVE
Format:CD
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

Legendary saxophonist and Ray Charles alumnus lights it up with a burning Vancouver trio.

The set is especially balanced and satisfying—from the brilliance of David’s original compositions (“Cellar Groove,” “The Cookie,” “The Gift”) to his signature blues lament (“Hard Times”) to classic bop (Hank Mobley’s “This I Dig Of You” and Dizzy Gillespie’s “Night in Tunisia”) to a haunting ballad (Duke Pearson’s “Cristo Redentor.”)

The steady support of Tilden Webb’s superb trio brings out the best of one of American’s premier jazzman. As you listen to David dance through the changes on this freezing night in Canada, you realize that certain artists improve with age. “Ripeness is all,” Shakespeare wrote in King Lear.

David Newman realized a ripeness—a gorgeous maturity of tone, invention and pure poetry—that will endure forever.

KOSMISCHE RITUALE

Band:KRAUTZONE
Album:KOSMISCHE RITUALE
Label:SULATRON RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

Krautzone was formed in September 2011 automatic - it just created itself totally spontaneous and autonomous: They met at the moonbase, to spend a nice time together. THE moment came and they decided to play music, so they fired the aggregates, pressed the recording button and improvised on the fly. After this session they all thought it’s like holidays from their actual bands like Electric Moon, Zone Six, The Pancakes... A substratum of these sessions, you can listen to on the current record, which is made totally in accordance with the zeitgeist of Krautrock: only on vinyl for now. This is limited to 1000 and will not be re-released in this format again. Spheric and magic seeming improvisations of Krautrock and Kosmische Musik, highlighted by subdued, percussively played shamanic drums and flurry psychedelic synthesizers. Monothonic bass and cosmic guitar build the room. Baba Lali was supposed to sing, but he just decided to fly through the room and spread cosmic, delightful atmosphere. „Kosmische Rituale“ is the soundtrack of a very spezial weekend. Lay back, relax and enjoy Krautzone! This album is mastered by Eroc and comes on marbled vinyl!

THE AWAKENING

Band:DARK FOREST
Album:THE AWAKENING
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Dark Forest was forged in the Black Country, England by guitarist Christian Horton. For just over a decade they have been delivering their uniquely rousing, defiant heavy metal to the world. With the release of their self-made EPs in 2007, the band quickly gained the attention and support of the heavy metal underground, both in England and abroad, and then went from strength to strength, gigging across Europe and the UK and releasing their self titled debut album in 2009, then Dawn of Infinity in 2011. In 2012 Dark Forest recruited the outstanding vocalist Josh Winnard as their new front man and shortly afterwards also gained the incredible talents of guitarist Pat Jenkins. With this new line up, the band immediately began writing fresh material and entered the recording studio in June 2013 to produce their third album “The Awakening”. The album is recorded in 444hz instead of the standardized 440hz tuning. The decision was based by studying the lost “Solfeggio frequencies”, original sound frequencies which were apparently used in Ancient Gregorian Chants and were believed to impart “spiritual blessings when sung in harmony”* and also by studying the nefarious origins of 440hz. Tuning to 444hz corresponds to a “C” of 528hz on the Solfeggio Frequency Scale, the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA. This frequency is also believed to encourage “Transformation and Miracles” . Dark Forest’s innate sense of melody remains intact on “The Awakening”, as well as the band’s trademarked epic twin-guitar dueling, but this time the album is permeated by a general sense of oppression and sorrow and sounds much more reflective than their previous works. Not by coincidence, “The Awakening” opens with the ending lines of Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poem “ The Mask of Anarchy” and ends with the anthem “Sons of England”. The awakening must be both spiritual and intellectual and through the rediscovery of our roots and a connection to nature, must lead all humanity to remember the truth - that we are infinite consciousness and we are one. This is the realization that will defeat the global control system of the elite and set humanity free.

The album was completed in September'2013 as a commemoration of SHRINE’s 10th year anniversary (IX.2003 - IX.2013) and brings together seven tracks composed over the last 5 years. A very personal and poignant work that differs significantly from other SHRINE releases, being a lot heavier in atmosphere with a lingering gloom and largely saturated with negativity. Exploring the burden of the human ego from a personal point of view, it aims to expose a different look upon Freud's "Death Drive" theory.

Label:JARRING EFFECTS
Format:CD
Genre:Industrial/EBM

Pierre-André Pernin started näo in 2007 as a one-man project, joined later by the drummer Thibault Fellmann, the guitarist Jordan Daverio. Over the year’s näo have gone beyond these influences to amaze audiences at already a hundred concerts and festival appearances in France and Germany with their unique, previously unheard sound. At the studio as well as on stage, näo develop and shape melancholic and aerial music, exploring moods from contained rage to lyrical digital outbursts. Like a surgeon, Pierre-André meticulously crafts mesmerizing melodies and down-tempo beats. His penchant for synthetic layers and for skilfully chiselled keyboard compositions gives his' music a unique and strange atmosphere, progressively immersing the listener into näo's world. To this already enriched enchantment Thibaud and Jordan add their rhythmic impulses and abrupt riffs, creating a mixed beast of electro-noise, melded with brute, highly energetic guitars and spliced with elements of post rock, metal and idm into something very unique and powerful.

Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

Fifth album for the Swiss posthardcore heroes!

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.

After a debut EP on Deadlight Entertainement in 2008 and a impressively massive debut full-length released in 2011 by Russia’s Slow Burn, along the lines of Mastodon and Baroness in 2011, touring everywhere they could in Europe and releasing a split CD with fellow French Stoner / Doomsters Hangman’s Chair, Drawers decided in a wise move that doing killer music wasn’t enough and that being able to reinvent themselves was way more interesting than releasing the same album over and over, as killer that album could be.

They then decided to strip down their material while keeping everything that made them such a praise outfit in their scene : heaviness, catchiness and a killer sense of groove and song-writing and to record their new, self-titled, second full-length live in the studio to keep things as straight forward and down to Earth as they could, being on disc what they really stand for live : a supercharged, high-octane, groove machine whose music as captivating as enjoyable upon the very first listen.

20 Years anniversary Album Humppa versions of traditionals like El Condor Pasa, La Bamba or the Wanderer in an amazing versions Eläkeläiset was started as a joke in the spring 1993. The idea was to play rock classics in humppa style. Over the years the joke has proved to be far reaching – Eläkeläiset has earned wide recognition with bold humppa style and released not less than eight albums as well as couple of live albums and compilations alongside nine EPs. Eläkeläiset was at the peak of their popularity in 1995, when a real humppa scoop shook the nation in the summer. In the past years, the joyous noise of humppa has risen up to the heavens and carried out to foreign territories. Eläkeläiset has become a fixture.. an anarchistic and inebriated institution of sorts. In addition to cover songs, it has dabbled in composing its own humppa classics. Over the last ninteen years, it has toured all over Europe and has recording contracts in Central Europe and Russia. It has generated a book, a DVD, a couple of live albums and a plethora of merchandise raging from towels to hip flasks. Not bad for a disposable joke! The strangest thing so far is to try and qualify as Finland's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest of 2010. The band is competing with a song Hulluna humpasta which was released in a compilation Humppa Bingo in December 9th, 2009.

Let's just first point out that this isn't some two-bit lame punk act who demoed their first riffs on a cracked version of Pro Tools and posted them on myspace. No, such a thing they're not. So why is this important to point out you say? Well, the answer is simple: no debuting band could ever, and I mean ever, harness such intense anger and frustration and then make a nine song manifesto out of it. But that's exactly what WE LIVE IN TRENCHES has done with their album ”Modern Hex”. And it's not surprising either knowing the members of this band has been in the punk rock circuit since the early nineties and has been in such prominent bands as SATANIC SURFERS and ADHESIVE

 

 

UNDER JORDEN

Band:RIDDARNA
Album:UNDER JORDEN

Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

”Under jorden” (Underground) is the third album by Swedish band Riddarna. The new album is filled with frustration, angst and a wish to get away, anywhere. The band has a sound of new wave / postpunk combined with art / noise rock that reminds of Sonic Youth, Fugazi and that feeling of the 90's – a decade when the band grew up on the isolated island of Gotland outside the Swedish cost. During this period, the music scene exploded and new interesting music as Refused's “The Shape of Punk to Come” changed history at the same time as the American label Sub Pop with bands like Nirvana paved the way for a new kind of skewed melancholic music, and heavy rock acts like Queens of the Stone Age opened new doors for heavy, experimental and dark music. Riddarna fed hungrily on the music revolution of this era and grew up, and now, that time is gone forever but lives on with Riddarna – and their third album is a desperate cry and a fresh injection of pure rock.
