COLD RIVER LP

Band:MOUNTAIN WITCH
Album:COLD RIVER LP
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Since then Mountain Witch has not only recruited a third member in bass player Tobert Knopp, they have returned with a more focused and ambitious sound on their follow up album Cold River. Their first release on This Charming Man Records - the Muenster based label responsible for Die Nerven, The Moth, Messer and more - while that loose and low slung spirit of Scythe. still remains, it's now strengthened by an unmistakable 70s psych rock majesty. With vintage tones and killer riffs reminiscent of early Sabbath, their new direction also takes in the boogie of Blue Cheer, ballsy strut of Deep Purple and the total ambition of Pink Floyd. A sound that doesn't shy away from its hard rock roots and at the same time doesn't stop long enough to rest on them. A more structured record than anything they've ever laid down before, Cold River's newest and most noticeable characteristic can be heard in the addition of Rene Sitte's vocals and darkened lyrics. Lysergic tales spun out over haunting grooves that never stray far from the arcane acid jams that inspired them originally and can be heard here echoing across ncient Light' and the curiously titled Shrubbery The Warlock'. There's also a distinct feeling that while the Mountain Witch of old were content to plug in and rock out, the epic guitar assaults and rhythm and doom sections of Sleepers Chant' and The Covey' give this latest incarnation a newfound purpose. One that could give the likes of Dead Meadow, Uncle Acid and former label mates Kadavar.LTD BROWN VINYL LP.

A NORTHERN MEADOW

Band:PYRAMIDS
Album:A NORTHERN MEADOW
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

The Texas-based musical contingent known as PYRAMIDS have become quite the musical entity since emerging, almost from out of nowhere, in 2008 with their debut self-titled LP which was released by Hydra Head Records. A record that generated a lot of buzz and acclaim within experimental and extreme metal, with its references to such genres as shoegaze, black metal, ambient/drone, avant-garde, and industrial music respectively.

Following said debut album, PYRAMIDS would suddenly see themselves collaborating with and receiving contributions from a myriad of musicians (also note that the debut album also featured a bonus disc of re-mixes of said tracks from it, re-mixes done by artists such as Blut Aus Nord, James Plotkin, Colin Marston, and Jesu just to name a few), notable artists such as Faith Coloccia (Mamiffer), Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins), Albin Julius (Der Blutharsch), and Colin Marston (who PYRAMIDS would work on a regular basis with), along with making collaborative albums with Nadja, Horseback, and Mamiffer respectively. “A Northern Meadow”, the new full-length PYRAMIDS album, is the band’s direct follow-up (that is not a collaboration or split with any other band) to their 2008 debut.

For “A Northern Meadow”, joining the PYRAMIDS lineup (already consisting of R. Loren, M. Dean, M. Craig, and D. Willaim) is Colin Marston (Gorguts/Krallice/Dysrhythmia), Vindsval (Blut Aus Nord), and William Fowler Collins. The result being an encompassing album that stretches the PYRAMIDS sound even further into something even more grand and epic; the band’s most stunning offering yet, through an overwhelming sound picture heavy in atmosphere and ambience. One that is dark, dreamy, and lush, yet claustrophobic, mechanically crawling, and surgically cold at the same time.

 

 

FLESH THRONE PRESS

Band:POMBAGIRA
Album:FLESH THRONE PRESS
Label:SVART
Format:2 CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Deep occult doom metal from England's masters of the genre !

Svart Records will release Pombagira's highly anticipated new album, Flesh Throne Press, on March 27th. The band's sixth album since their inception in 2007, Flesh Throne Press sees Pombagira expanding on themes in their previous double-album release, Maleficia Lamiah. Recorded in July 2014 across two intense weeks, the band put down over 80 minutes of material, all of which will be made available on double- CD and double-LP formats. Musically, this album projects Pombagira forward with a mind-expanding purpose for exposing the body to a varied compositional range. When it is heavy, it obliterates in an avalanche of riff-making, and when in full tilt, it is only matched by the orchestral quality produced by tracking six amps and cabs for every guitar take. More concise in its delivery than Maleficia Lamiah, the overall cerebral effect of Flesh Throne Pressupon the listener is apocalyptic. It will not only rattle you to the very core of your being, but it also wills the listener to a plane where an inner meditative pose can be sustained. This is accomplished by way of the heaviest songs Pombagira have written to date, and by injecting stripped-down undistorted constituents to the proceedings. 2 CD.

111 Part 1

Band:K-X-P
Album:111 Part 1
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:ELECTRO ROCK

Return of the Finnish innovators !

K-X-P have long identified as being an “anti-band” and as they move onto their third album, III, they continue to be so by defying both convention and expectation. For K-X-P every new record is another layer of skin shed; new territories are broached, areas explored and fresh influences imbued. The critically acclaimed pop-tinged electronic whirlwind that was their last release, II, has given way to something stripped and primed, leaving a dense yet sparse record of cinematic ambient techno fused with churning, progressive space rock. This follows hot on the heels of the group’s proto techno banger, 2014’s The History of Techno EP. CD.

ERKALE

Band:ATOMIKYLA
Album:ERKALE
Label:SVART
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage

Oranssi Pazuzu join forces with Dark Buddha Rising.

There is a certain force, a kind of mental gravity, that pulls certain people towards the same psychic space and state of mind. Once both Dark Buddha Rising and Oranssi Pazuzu were dragged by this force the inevitable finally occurred. Atomikylä was born. Still caught in the vortex of this force they are searching a way out. Knowing the only way towards freedom is to let it all go through crooked riff spirals and wasted feedback worship. Erkale, their debut album, is a tribute to the lit moments of freedom in Wastement, the asylum for this view on life. Atomikylä sounds like the offspring of Buddha and Pazuzu from a parallel universe. Utilizing the same energies and powers as the mother units yet sounding very original. Through the space filled with heavy psychedelia and distant light, one comes up with only one question: Who goes there?

IDLE STONES

Band:GARDEN OF WORM
Album:IDLE STONES
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Pastoral Scandinavian psychedelia meets free-form doom metal

GARDEN OF WORM is a trio operating in Tampere, Finland. Having played progressive rock in various groups, in 2003 the group decided it was time to play simple & basic doom metal. Thus the WORM was born. After several releases on several metal labels, the latest being the successful album for Shadow Kingdom Records (2010), the band went into hibernation. The new album Idle Stones is a product of this long period of quiet life. After the ambitious debut full lenght the band were unsure for a time regarding the direction their art would take next. Slowly the doomier, grimmer material allowed improvisation to creep in, and the entire work has a newfound sense of spontaneity. In 2014 GOW is a different beast than the creature of the early days. The band sounds more inspired and relaxed than ever. The doom metal base is still present, but there's also psychedelic warmness to the sound as well as freedom, like witnessed in the work of improvising rock units such as AMON DÜÜL (II) and TRÄD GRÄS & STENAR. The freedom also adds to the intensity of the live performances - even though there are always composed songs in the set, the improvisational passages keep the band focused on the moment. Anything can happen.

ETERNAL SLEEPWALKER

Band:HEAVYDEATH
Album:ETERNAL SLEEPWALKER
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Named one of CVLT Nation’s “Top 6 New Bands You Must Hear Today”, Heavydeath was formed with the purpose of creating and playing some kind of “heavy death” music.

The music is recorded as a trio. No frills: just guitar, bass, drums, and some vocals on top/inside of it. To date, Heaydeath have recorded four demos, alternately released on cassette and digital formats. Slated for release on March 9th via Svart, the debut album of Heavydeath was recorded under rather simple conditions in the summer of 2014: simply a drum-kit, a bass, and a guitar and with no overdubs. In the landscapes of heavy riffs, there are also some chanting vocals here and there in the songs, too. As the band state, “We have, just like the previous demo recordings, tried to keep the material straight and ‘primitive’ in the same Heavydeath style. We enjoy creating small details like morbid dis-harmonies and melodies in the riffs, but we have also tried to make it sound a little different than previous recordings. It would be boring if the album sounds exactly like the demo recordings. One thing is, for sure, it sounds AS HEAVY AS DEATH. CD.

IN HATE WITH THE BURNING WORLD

Album:IN HATE WITH THE BURNING WORLD
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Slow, downtuned misanthropia with Rotten Sound vocalist.

Morbid Evils started in early 2014 out of the members' shared love of downtuned riffs played at a slug's pace and their hatred of humanity in general, and at the brink of summer, they found themselves with an album's worth of original material. Recording sessions and post-production took place throughout the hot season in the darkness of the band's own rehearsal room. The album was created from start to finish with a strongly organic approach, and much of the instrumentation was recorded live. Comments vocalist Keijo Niinimaa (Rotten Sound), "We have a desolate worldview, and our aim is to create soundscapes that suck the listener into fiery sewers in which there is no hope for a future."

COLD WAVES OF COLOUR

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:COLD WAVES OF COLOUR
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

Cold wave, electronic synth pop, and minimal tracks from the Color Tapes archive, recorded between 1981-1985

Features cold wave pioneers Lives of Angels, WeR7, and Modern Art - Tracks drawn from DIY cassette editions of 100 copies (or less) - Two bonus tracks not on import vinyl edition

Collection of rare UK cold wave tracks taken from Color Tapes label cassettes released in micro editions between 1981-1985. Color Tapes was the brainchild of future Sun Dial leader Gary Ramon: "Living in East London, it was a very grey and bleak time. Huge imposing tower blocks, gasworks and concrete just about everywhere. You couldn't walk through some areas without the risk of being shot at by an air rifle, or worse. Luckily, salvation was in the music. The musical landscape was changing. I saw a very early gig by an unknown all-synth band called Depeche Mode at a dingy pub under a flyover called The Bridge House in Canning Town, London. Following this I saw Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five and started buying records by the likes of Afrika Bambaataa. At the other end of the musical spectrum, we were picking up records by Stockhausen, John Cage, Pierre Henry and Moondog, and combing junk shops for anything else that looked interesting!" The UK cassette scene and DIY ethos were thriving. Color Tapes was born. Home multi-track recorders were luxury items. They had to make do with sound on sound recorders, bouncing between reel-to-reel and cassette machines if they wanted stereo. What you're about to hear for the first time since those days is a snapshot of Color Tapes: released material and other unissued tracks too. This compilation is the first of a series of Color Tapes/Lion Productions releases of material from the Color Tapes archives

 

 

MATEO Y TRASANTE

Band:EDUARDO MATEO and JORGE TRANSATE
Album:MATEO Y TRASANTE
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:PSYCH/INSTRUMENTAL

First time vinyl reissue of this tremendous 1976 guitar/percussion album.

From the original multi-track master tapes

Four panel insert has info on the making of the album as told by Jorge Trasante, lyrics in English and Spanish + amazing session photos by Enrique Abal Oliú.

"Under the dark cloud of an early 1970's dictatorship, most musicians fled Uruguay. Not the nation's best, iconoclast Eduardo Mateo. It was during this dark period that Mateo reached his zenith as a composer and arranger, with a help from famous Afro-folk percussionist Jorge Trasante. On this album, Mateo goes deep into sonic explorations of percussion variations and guitar techniques. Mateo’s voice also underwent a mutation for the album, which many people thought the result of a deep mental illness; Trasante explains that Mateo used modulations drawn from Arabic music to “get into different characters with his voice.” This record is now considered indisputable evidence of Mateo’s genius. “If Eduardo Mateo was a genius, and that fact no one who has heard his music doubts, then ‘Mateo y Trasante’ is his masterpiece. There were some who said that Mateo and Trasante were both crazy, that Mateo could not sing. Mateo and Trasante resisted the vile and ruthless criticism of those skeptics: those who resisted the quality and depth of this record. Mateo and Trasante resisted, immovable, as are those who know that history will have its day of judgment. To paraphrase someone who knew music and much more, for the truth and Mateo, I sign my name here.” —Daniel Figares.

Tähtiportti (Stargate) is a veritable who's who of Finnish leftfield music scene....

... Albert Witchfinder (Reverend Bizarre, Opium Warlords, Spiritus Mortis) on vocals, while Vilunki 3000 (Op:l Bastards, Larry & The Lefthanded), Stiletti-Ana (Jesse) and Randy Barracuda (Imatran Voima) handle the instrumentation. Over a downbeat, almost frozen techno music backdrop a Finnish male voice recounts stories of abysses, of an abyss within the abysses. In an ancient kingdom, beyond time and space. Open your mind, open your bowels. Let the stream flow. In the shadow of the gates in your mind. Primitive techno and the darkly ancient flow of poetry are the fuel that Tähtiportti runs on. Svart Records will release the Tähtiportti album on CD, LP and digital formats on February 27th. The official music video, directed by the renowned director Miika Lommi, is up on youtube now. The song is Poikarakkaus (Love Between Boys), which is a cover version of a Finnish cult tune from the 80s - CD.

Genre:Avant-Garde

Tähtiportti (Stargate) is a veritable who's who of Finnish leftfield music scene...

... Albert Witchfinder (Reverend Bizarre, Opium Warlords, Spiritus Mortis) on vocals, while Vilunki 3000 (Op:l Bastards, Larry & The Lefthanded), Stiletti-Ana (Jesse) and Randy Barracuda (Imatran Voima) handle the instrumentation. Over a downbeat, almost frozen techno music backdrop a Finnish male voice recounts stories of abysses, of an abyss within the abysses. In an ancient kingdom, beyond time and space. Open your mind, open your bowels. Let the stream flow. In the shadow of the gates in your mind. Primitive techno and the darkly ancient flow of poetry are the fuel that Tähtiportti runs on. Svart Records will release the Tähtiportti album on CD, LP and digital formats on February 27th. The official music video, directed by the renowned director Miika Lommi, is up on youtube now. The song is Poikarakkaus (Love Between Boys), which is a cover version of a Finnish cult tune from the 80s

ONE LIE AT A TIME

Band:GALILEO 7
Album:ONE LIE AT A TIME
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:7" VINYL
Genre:Psych/Garage

There may be a time when the words ‘ex-member of the legendary Medway garage-mod-rockers The Prisoners, and currently playing bass in Graham Day & the Forefathers’ don’t need to be appended to anything that Allan Crockford does with his own band – or any of the multitude of bands he’s played in since the Prisoners split in 1986 – but he’s not holding his breath. He’s just getting on with making great records with The Galileo 7. Their 3rd album, ‘False Memory Lane’, was critically well received and showed the band capable of confounding and improving on the Medway DIY garage rock stereotype:

Now The Galileo 7 roar back with a new line-up making its recording debut on this double A-side 7” single. And the sound has evolved... or regressed... or just exploded. Pocket dynamo (and State Records head honcho) Mole moves from bashing the bass to fulfilling his true calling – smashing seven shades out of his vintage Premier drumkit. Original bouncing bassist Paul Moss returns to fill the gap, creating a new rocket-fuelled, over-revving rhythm engine that nearly tears itself of its mountings. Couple that engine with four-part harmonies, baroque flavoured organ and Mellotron noodlings from Viv Bonsels, fuzz-laden crunchy guitar and two typically twisty, turny psych-power-pop tuneramas from Crockford, all lovingly captured in futuristic mono at Jim Riley’s Ranscombe Studios, and you have one of those rare beasts—a single that demands to be flipped ad infinitum. There is no B-side. This double A sided, AAA rated slab of finely judged melodic noise could be from 1968 or 1978... or even 2015. Grab yourselves one of these limited edition, purple picture-sleeved objects of primitive beauty now...

Thee Jezebels promise to save you from the dull times as well as provide healthy doses of advice about who to keep your daughters away from, with a prescription of 'Black Book' b/w 'Cried Over You'. Fans, this is the treatment you will not regret. LTD TO 500...

 

 

MESSIN' AROUND THE LIVING ROOM

Band:LITTLE FREDDIE KING
Album:MESSIN' AROUND THE LIVING ROOM
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

Introduced onstage as: “The world renowned, hard to kill, pistol-packin’, chicken-pickin’, string-pullin’, show stoppin’, freight train hoppin’, gamecock walkin’, master of electricity, king of gutbucket blues, connoisseur of women, His Royal Highness”, Little Freddie King is a key figure in the New Orleans’s music scene and brings unrivaled enthusiasm, passion and style to his performances. As the blues evolve, artists with Mr. King’s life experience and exposure to earlier generations of this music are slowly disappearing. Freddie has become one of New Orleans’s great cultural ambassadors as he has extended his music and travel beyond the City to a National and Global audience. His style is rooted in a unique combination of Mississippi country and New Orleans urban flavor to make a gumbo of Blues that unleashes his pride in both regions.

"The slop bucket wheeze put out on his cover of King Curtis's "Soul Twist" is potent enough to turn George W. Bush into the Godfather of Soul. It's is THAT country and THAT ghetto." Offbeat Magazine

 

 

PERFECT ABANDON

Band:TOM BROUSSEAU
Album:PERFECT ABANDON
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

Perfect Abandon is the new album by Tom Brosseau. It was produced, engineered and recorded in Bristol, England by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Peggy Sue) and Ali Chant, features a 2-piece drum kit, double bass and Stratocaster guitar. Themes of the songwriting include man struggles to understand divinity, betrayal of a kinsman, discovery, individualism, love. “The title comes from a page in the long-forgotten Delmore Brothers autobiography, Truth Is Stranger Than Publicity. In it Alton Delmore writes about J.L. ‘Joe’ Frank, one of the first big-time country music promoters and managers in Nashville, and specifically how he wore his hat ‘with a perfect abandon.’ In the Delmore book there are no photos of Joe and his hat, so you must use your imagination. Me? I envision the crown of the hat to be pushed way back on the head, so that the peak of the hat is up beyond the hairline, exposing the forehead, the facial features, like James Dean in Giant. While the hat may appear to be getting away, it never fails. A person in this fashion could be perceived to be without restraint. Life is not a care, life is not a worry.” 

“North Dakota troubadour brings stark, trembling beauty to folky acoustic pop. The world is better for it.” - MOJO

 

 

LIVE IN TEXAS

Band:BP FALLON
Album:LIVE IN TEXAS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Saustex is pleased to present Live In Texas, the latest release from BP Fallon. Fallon has spent a lifetime in music as a storied DJ (U2's Zoo TV Tour), writer, photographer, publicist (Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, T Rex) and manager but has come to the table as a performer only relatively recently. Described in Hammer Of The Gods as “a visionary imp”, by Vogue magazine as “a gentle wispy sorcerer”, and by Bono as ” a rock’n’roll creature. The only white black man I know apart from Bob Dylan”, Fallon has always possessed a nose for what is new and crucial. This live album finds BP in fine form and was recorded October 2014 in Austin, Texas. Accompanied by Aaron Lee Tasjan on acoustic guitar and joined mid-set by Danny B. Harvey and Joe “King” Carrasco, BP spins a grand and artfully connected tale that is equal parts poetry, song and history lesson, climaxing with the rave-up “Van & Gloria”. This 700 copy limited edition CD is a must for any true connoisseur of the art of rock’n’roll.

LEAVE NO BRIDGE UNBURNED

Band:WHITEHORSE
Album:LEAVE NO BRIDGE UNBURNED
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Leave No Bridge Unburned sees Whitehorse shaping a bigger, bolder rock sound. Any lingering assumptions that the husband and wife duo is working within the boundaries of a folk duo should be put to rest. Leave No Bridge Unburned is a fiery, forceful and finely tuned album that showcases an abundance of guitar slinging, exceptional songwriting and white-hot desire. Whitehorse formed in 2010 by Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland. The band was nominated for the Polaris Short List (2013) for The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss, their debut full-length album.

LOOKS

Band:PRETTIEST EYES
Album:LOOKS
Label:AAGOO RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Post Punk

Forming amongst the toxic sludge in Los Angeles sewers rises the city’s greatest new threat, the PRETTIEST EYES. Their new album, LOOKS, is set to be released by Aagoo Records on March 9 2015 (Euro Release date), on vinyl and digital formats. The band crafts a completely menacing blues-based sound, attacking from all angles and firmly keeping their feet in the murky pools of psych and noise. Originally from San Juan, but now based in LA, the band operates as a three piece – Pachy takes care of the drumming and vocals.

Marco plays bass and Paco plays keyboards, and both together provide backup singing. Their album packs a psychedelic punch like the best of their California-based brethren, elevating songs from wild to straight-up berserker status. The three-pronged vocal effort calls to mind Florida’s Jacuzzi Boys or even Hungry Gayze. The end result yields a nerve-racking blend of prismatic psychedelic punk, loaded with razor-sharp elements and buzzing keyboards processed through effect pedals for an excruciating crunch.

Another significant contribution comes from Gary Husband, who features on the intense drum duet D-Day. Vinnie Colaiuta and Jerry De Villiers Jr were involved in the Ad Perpetuum project from its inception. A two-day session booked with Vinnie for January 2014 provided the deadline for writing the material, giving Antoine a threemonth window to compose all the pieces for the album. This was the first time that Antoine had been challenged to meet a specific deadline for a personal project.

The music on Ad Perpetuum encompasses a broad spectrum of grooves and atmospheres. A conscious effort was made to offer a multitude of tempos, time signatures, structures and harmonic variations in order to showcase the virtuosity of the players. De Villiers Jr’s incredible guitar playing and tone brings a deep vitality to the music, while Colaiuta’s playing is simply flawless

Like all the best pop they aren’t afraid to sing unashamedly about love; lyrically, Arnos Vale focuses on the exhilaration and anxiety of being in love, realising what you have but being scared to lose it.

ON BODIES plays dark, seething, highly – critical hardcore with a snarl. Formed in 2012 by vocalist Damien Moyal and bassist Rich Thurston, ON BODIES execute a distinctive brand of hardcore punk that’s just plain mean.

On “The Long Con” EP, the band barrels forward at breakneck speed, while Moyal’s vocals scold with commanding, rabid precision. And always, at the black, embittered heart of each song, is an uncomfortable and highly – critical sense of urgency and discontent. This EP is an uncompromising exploration of existential themes, and an unapologetic lambasting of organized religion and zealotry.

Former members of Culture, As Friends Rust, Morning Again, Blood Has Been Shed, and Terror.

The Long Con Vinyl release, will be a limited 10” vinyl with a gold foil record jacket -  Pressing of 500.

Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

For five years, from 1980 to 1985, he lived in the mountains of western NC. “Old Time” and “Bluegrass” were the main music from this area. The bluegrass styles can be heard all through this latest album, “Ken Foust”. In 2002, his brother Steve Foust introduced him to Tom Constanten (TC), former keyboardist of GREATFUL DEAD. “Moved To Stanleyville” by Tom Constanten & Ken Foust was released 3 years later, both independently in the US and through a partnership with Sireena Records in Germany for European Distribution. This latest release, the eponymously titled “Ken Foust”, is a collection of original compositions which span from 1984 until June 2014. The style of music on this album could be described as: Carolina Americana. This effort took six months of steady work at a beautiful country music studio headed up by Jamie Hoover, who co-produced the album with Ken. Jamie also recorded & coproduced “Moved To Stanleyville”. This is a worthwhile album for you to acquire and to add to your music collection!!!!

 

 

TIBET

Band:TIBET
Album:TIBET
Label:SIREENA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Prog Rock

German band TIBET was formed in 1972, having been inspired by the Eastern experimentation of groups such as the BEATLES and THIRD EAR BAND. The band toured extensively throughout the seventies, opening occasionally for fellow countrymen and friends of the band KRAAN, but managed to release only a single album, their self-titled 1979 studio release. The tracks for the debut album were recorded in three separate sessions dating from December 1976 to September 1978, The band's sound was a complex fusion of astral rock, jazz, classical music and Tibetan sounds, heavily keyboarddriven (Hammond, mellotron) and compared to the likes of ELOY, AMENOPHIS, and even URIAH HEEP, although most of their studio release consists of tracks that are similar in style but more reserved than any of those bands. Lyrics (when present) were primarily in sung English, but the band was known to play longer instrumentals in concert, and three such tracks appear on their studio release. Having failed to make a commercial impression with their one record, TIBET decided to call it quits and disbanded following their final concert appearance on March 22, 1980. TIBET deserves recognition for having been a small part of the progressive music scene with their extensive live performance history throughout the seventies, and for the eclectic and ambitious style of music for which they were known by their small but persistent fan base.

HASTA KARMA

Band:DEWA BUDJANA
Album:HASTA KARMA
Label:FREILAND
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Prog Rock

Joined by a superb cast of marquee players, Dewa Budjana's new release, 'Hasta Karma,' sets a new benchmark for modern progressive jazz excellence in the 21st century. With a vibe and feel more akin to that of a band with decades of experience together, Dewa and his stellar session-mates - the legendary NYC vibraphonist, Joe Locke, and Pat Metheny Unity Group's rhythm core: the fabulous, articulate young upright bassist, Ben Williams, and the extraordinary maestro drummer, Antonio Sanchez - create superlative atmospheric textures that transport listeners to destinations of soaring altitude. Augmenting proceedings further is the glowing work of the legendary Indonesian keyboardist, Indra Lesmana. Showcasing his compositional and arrangement skills at their absolute finest, most finely-honed, Budjana has delivered his ultimate masterpiece in 'Hasta Karma. ' Capitalizing on their extraordinary gifts, Dewa Budjana pushes the band, and his music, to new, unparalleled heights. Oozing quality at every turn and dripping emotion throughout, this is music that is supremely visionary, ambitious and majestic. . . . and, perhaps in spite of its polish, it is undeniably straight from the heart. All the players involved contribute some of the most convincing performances of their impressive careers, yet the multifarious displays of individual greatness never upstage the corporate sanctity of the musical moment. This is modern progressive jazz at its most sensitive -- and its very best.

 

 

LAW OF DEVILS LAND - REISSUE

Band:LOUDNESS
Album:LAW OF DEVILS LAND - REISSUE
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

Released on January 21st 1983 and again produced and engineered by Daniel McClendon, ‘The Law Of Devil’s Land’ is packed full of hard rocking highlights such as “Speed”, “Mr. Yes Man”, “The Law of Devil's Land”, “Show Me the Way” and “Black Wall”, all resplendent with powerful riffs and pounding bass and drums. For many, this album perfectly sums up the Loudness sound and therefore is considered by many to be the band’s finest hour. The album was eventually to be picked up for distribution in Europe by Roadrunner records, making it the band’s first album to receive a release outside of Japan. Definitely a sign of things to come...

‘The Law Of Devil’s Land’ is released here on CD for the first time outside of Japan and it has never sounded so good.

Label:MAJESTIC ROCK
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

Y&T were one of the 80’s defining hard rock acts, with a succession of ballsy, European styled albums to their credit that quickly established the band as major attractions on the gig circuit. Originally released in 1985, ‘Open Fire’ was the band’s first live album and it contains a number of the band’s most explosive tracks, including the romping ‘Forever’, ‘I Believe In You’ and the all time classic ‘Rescue Me’, one of the highlights of the bands magnificent ‘Earthshaker’ album.

SUMMONING DELIVERANCE.

Band:HORN OF THE RHINO
Album:SUMMONING DELIVERANCE.
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Once again, HORN OF THE RHINO and DOOMENTIA are a pair that has come a long way together. Ever since their 2010 ‘Weight of the Coronation’, ‘Summoning Deliverance’ is their fourth collaboration, including the re-release last year of ‘Breed of the Chosen’ their very first proper recording originally issued as RHINO back in 2007. The trio might have entered their tenth year as a band but they’re still growing and this is, by far, their most adventurous and ambitious work yet. Here, their quite unique mix of sludge, grunge and thrash takes here a whole new dimension. Javier Galvez soulful voice may still be their biggest asset but on ‘Summoning Deliverance’, they’ve proving that although they’re still heavy-as-fuck, they’ve got any tricks up their sleeve. If sometimes they plough headstrong into the nearest wall, they also like to suggest in a very subtle yet menacing way that that even darker clouds are ahead.

GRENGUS - CD

Band:HORN OF THE RHINO
Album:GRENGUS - CD
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Not that many band cite as influences BOLT THROWER, AUTOPSY and WINO or SOUNDGARDEN. Then again, not that many bands sound like Bilbao’s HORN OF THE RHINO. If in 2010 their first album ‘Weight Of Coronation’ on Doomentia Records proved to be slippery case – that is an album that denies any form of categorization, apart maybe from being filed under the ‘fucking heavy’ tag – its follow-up will undoubtedly see even more people scratching their heads, that is if they manage to survive this insanely powerful barrage of riffs.

A far more heavier and meaner affair than their previous offering, the subject matters of this fourth full-length alone should easily tip those who will dare stepping in that ‘Grengus’ is no nice walk in the park with songtitles like “Piles Of Severed Heads”, “Waste For Ghouls” or “Awaken Horror Of Tuul”. Once again, you’ll find here a collusion of sludge, doom and heavy fuckin’ metal but with the band own twist. Then again, it’s never totally devoid of melody somehow, with guitar player and frontman Javier Gŕlvez unmistakable voice still be the most valuable weapon in their armoury as he’s more than ever able to rasp in a demonic voice one second and sing in a soothing yet desperate way the next.

2nd album on CD.

 

 

GLOOM IMMEMORIAL

Band:HOODED MENACE
Album:GLOOM IMMEMORIAL
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

No matter how far they go, some people never forget where they come from. Such one man is Lasse Pyykkö of the mighty HOODED MENACE: created in 2007 in Joensuu, Finland to pay tribute to both the ‘Blind Dead’ movie series and the ancient metal of death, it has since then become one of the most crushing death/doom band around while their so far three full-lenghts and many prestigious festival appearances have gathered nothing but praise and put them at the top of extreme metal’s foodchain.

Yet Pyykkö never turned his back on the underground he came from and still feels part of. And as an active supporter of the scene, he’d always seek out opportunities to exclusive material while teaming up for various splits with very different partners, from well-confirmed deathmetal veterans (ASPHYX) to D-beat masters (ILSA), straight-up weirdos (HORSE LATITUDES) or even Giallo original soundtrack worshippers (ANIMA MORTE). Overall, over the course of seven years, HOODED MENACE has taken part in half-dozen splits and released three EPs, many of them through DOOMENTIA.

Both a gift to their longtime fans that won’t have to spend shitloads of dollars on EBAY to get a worn out copy of those now long out-of-print titles and a little snack while everybody’s waiting to be crushed by their next album (hopefully in 2015), Pyykkö has gathered all those standalone tracks in one place for this compilation. Clocking at a whooping 76 minutes and featuring four different line-ups and such rarities as ‘I, Devil Master’ (recorded for the ‘Live Evil vol.1’ comp) or the very first versions of ‘Fulfill the Curse’ or ‘The Eyeless Horde’ that appeared on the band’s sole demo back in 2007. ‘Gloom Immemorial’ is also graced by a very special artwork courtesy of Chris from Misanthropic Art.

 

 

WHEN DEATH COMES

Band:APHONIC THRENODY
Album:WHEN DEATH COMES
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

APHONIC THRENODY is not what you can call your average band. With various members spread over four different countries and two continents, this now six-headed beast would actually rather label themselves ‘a doom collective’. What was started off initially in London in late 2012 by guitarist Riccardo Veronese from GALLOW GOD and vocalist Rob Mura from URNA was quickly joined by a myriad of musicians from Italy, Hungary or the UK, with extra prestigious guests such as Jarno from SHAPE OF DESPAIR and Greg from ESOTERIC to boot. Based on those names alone, you kind of know from the get-go in what kind of dreaded territories you’re about to enter, desolate doom/death soundscapes verging on funeral doom where the words ‘epic’ and ‘mournful’ doesn’t even start to cover it all.

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL

Band:GARTH BROOKS
Album:UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
Label:CLOUD LINE MEDIA
Format:DVD
Genre:POP

When Garth Brooks first appeared on the musical landscape in 1989, few could have predicted the meteoric rise that would follow.

And after a lengthy period out of the spotlight, Garth Brooks has finally returned to reclaim his mantel as the King of Country.

This DVD features filmed interviews with Garth from across his illustrious career in which he talks candidly about his music, his life, his fans and his phenomenal success.

CARDINAL NOIRE

Band:CARDINAL NOIRE
Album:CARDINAL NOIRE
Label:EK Product
Format:CD
Genre:Industrial/EBM

Cardinal Noire: creators of menacing angry and deeply dark sounds that are like an extraplanetary subsoil from which they emerge persistently a galaxy of disturbing modulations.

Their sequence immediately inspires a sense of violence and oppression that the listener perceives in the recesses of his brain, until the achievement of a total state of alienation and the full awareness of being projected into a cycle of torment without end. Cardinal Noire is also the title of this important debut-album that focuses in its core a complex EBM/industrial musicality overflowing with aggression and icy ruthlessness, conditions arising from the inner darkness so intensely ingrained within the mind of the protagonists. Nine songs for nine expressions of technological nightmares, all this by harsh -hallucinated vocals that lacerate hearing, by murky emissions of synths and by hammering rhythmical beats that explode in the surrounding space with all their strength.

 

 

WARNEMUNDE

Band:GIMME SHELTER
Album:WARNEMUNDE
Label:EK Product
Format:CD
Genre:Synthpop

After the solid qualitative advancement of their electronic style manifested at the beginning of the third Millennium with the promo "Deep Pink Water", the Leipziger duo Gimme Shelter is ready to surprise you by a new release designed with mental clarity and vanguard technologism. Robert Grolms and Niko Kötzsc present in 2015 a masterpiece simply entitled "Warnemünde", an album elaborated with ultra-modern strategies and peculiarities that will be surely appreciated by the masses of alternative listeners. The thirteen episodes included in the tracklist are generators of energy and synthpop / EBM danceability, by the perfect interplay between voice and machines, together with a touch of sophistication that transforms the sounds in moments of great entertainment. The voice of Robert delineates clear harmonies entirely sung in Germanic language, while the synth skillfully maneuvered by Niko propagates catchy notes combined with pulsing bpm's of drum-programming: the result of this synergy is an authoritarian sound, sometimes shady and melancholic, always atmospheric, specifically minded to attract you with its formidable magnetism from which you can not escape.

 

 

FEED

Band:RETROGRAMME
Album:FEED
Label:EK Product
Format:2 CD
Genre:Industrial/EBM

The Washington DC-based Retrogramme possess the rare ability to surprise us. Always. Whenever they unleash their creativity we have to wait for a result far above our expectations. The antecedent album "For Our Dearly Departed" of 2012 is still considerated as an object of cult, but the new double full-length "Feed" promises to go further. The band's style is a unique, multiform and sophisticated blend of synthpop, IDM, EBM and darkwave, created through asymmetrical or linear rhythms, alienating consonances and sound abstractions that make Retrogramme one of the most important institutions of their music genre. The new title track enumerates twenty-four songs divided into two separate volumes: each of them is hyper saturated with original sonorities that will drag you into a vortex of dance. The elements to solicit your interest are all there: pulsing bass-lines of drum-programming, robotic or lithe musicality, fascinating and amazing vocalizations. Moreover, the second disk included exclusively a fantastic series of remixes elaborated by Halo Effect, Framework, DrMOllE, Citizen, Bites, Echoknocks, PDR, Poject K -11, Deadliner, Atropine, TourdeForce and Red This Ever.

BLACK SATANIC MYSTICUM

Band:ARVAS
Album:BLACK SATANIC MYSTICUM
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Norwegian Black Metal scene recently missed the contact with the roots and his primeval spontaneity, trapped into personal avant-gardism ambitions, too often missing the focus because of the individualist ego. Arvas are ready to take the banner, involving personalities deeply rooted to the scene since the early ’90, where on ’96 “Nocturno Inferno” was born featuring Grim of Gorgoroth & Ares of Aeternus together with the present mastermind V-Rex . The thrashy influences are explicitly manifested, the sound proves the culture and attitude of the band in taking the distance from the newcomers. The Norwegian background isn’t clearly overexposed but grows into the guitar lines for a mature and elitist taste. The Album is produced, mixed and composed by V-Rex, it is mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll at Strype Audio in Oslo.

For fans of Gorgoroth & Aura Noir -  One of the last band connected to the true history of the Norwegian Black Metal scene still alive and rocking from the ’90 wave - Featuring ex-Gorgoroth & Aeternus members.

French Black Metal scene soon has become the most important alternative to the Scandinavia nature inspired mood, leaving apart the Legion Noire memory to investigate on the more controversial occult fields. “De Divinatione Daemonum” is an open vacuum where the listener can climb losing any contact with the real world, fast but not brutal the descent is made to gradually become surrounded by the hypnotic scenario.

VICTIMS OF OUR SAME DREAMS

Band:ERGOT
Album:VICTIMS OF OUR SAME DREAMS
Label:DE TENEBRARUM PRINCIPIO
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Ergot is a talented project that moves the steps from the roots of the second half of the ’90 decade, inspired by the capacity to merge a grim attitude and instrumental skills. “Victims of our Same Dreams” may be for example a possible evolution of the scene after the Emperor / Enslaved split or the Satyricon Dark Medieval Times album, not too much bombastic on the production but for sure very careful to manifest all shading of its mature form. Not simply a copycat but taking a naïve synthesizers approach to a solid metal skill on the guitars, including also some very emotive and well managed solos. Ergot don’t focus on the regressive side of this music, without affecting an inch of the spontaneity of this music, but pushing the instruments to express those feelings into an higher form of expression.

For fans of early Emperor, Satyricon & Gorgoroth...
