GREASEWHEEL

Band:VIRGIN KIDS
Album:GREASEWHEEL
Label:FLUFFER
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Garage Punk

Fluffer Records, the cult underground label that brought you Sewer Rats and Love Buzzard and the label that re-invented the live music scene through Pit Parties (Slaves/ Cerebral Ballzy/ Heck/ God Damn), announce their newest signing, Virgin Kids.

Originally started as the bedroom project of frontman Asher Preston, Virgin Kids were fully formed in late 2014 with the addition of childhood friend Paul Rosser and ex-Fawn Spots drummer Sean Hughes. They deliver frenetically energised rock‘n’roll that draws from sources such as post-punk and the ‘70s West Coast (think Gun Club, FIDLAR, The Black Lips).

DIY magazine says “Virgin Kids share the same grime-under-fingernails, downright grubby mentality as fellow garage punks The Black Lips and Hinds. But with new song ‘Cracks in a Colour’, they form a gnarly manifesto of their own”

Joint release with Burger Records (US).

Limited Edition 12’ vinyl (includes download codes). Exclusive limited edition bonus download track with vinyl purchase.

 

 

SLOW FOREVER

Band:COBALT
Album:SLOW FOREVER
Label:Profound Lore
Format:Double CD
Genre:Metal

Colorado’s COBALT, over the years and since they began working with Profound Lore Records with 2007’s landmark “Eater Of Birds” album, have become recognized as one of the most singular and defining extreme American metal bands today. Their 2009 album “Gin” is recognized as a pillar in American extreme metal, a milestone album of literature-influenced progressive apocalyptic wasteland metal that took the American metal scene by storm and landed on pretty much all best-of year end lists the year it came out.

Now almost exactly seven years since the release of “Gin”, COBALT (now defined as the duo of multi-instrumentalist/mastermind Erik Wunder and new vocalist Charlie Fell, ex-LORD MANTIS) are poised to releases one of the most anticipated metal releases of 2016, their long-awaited new double album “Slow Forever”

“Slow Forever” sees COBALT, after years dealing with personal turbulence, tragedy, contemplation, and even confusion, return triumphant and focused as ever. With Wunder formulating their sound that naturally takes off where “Gin” left off and new vocalist Fell bringing a new character and sense of savagery and violence that’s synonymous with the COBALT sound, “Slow Forever” is another epic offering from the COBALT cannon destined to hammer down and make its notable impact as one of the most defining metal albums to be released in 2016.

A double album with an 86-minute running time set at a single CD price, is seen as one of the most anticipated metal albums of 2016. A must for fans of Neurosis, Tool, Swans, High On Fire, and Mayhem.

 

 

Varahtelija

Band:ORANSSI PAZUZU
Album:Varahtelija
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

In 2013 Finland’s Oranssi Pazuzu issued their ‘Valonielu’ LP, an album of timeless creative immensity that was met with ubiquitous praise throughout the world, and solidified the band’s position as one of the most forwardthinking and interesting metal bands. Now Oranssi Pazuzu returns with the follow-up album and fourth overall, the mind-bending masterwork ‘Värähtelijä'. Oranssi Pazuzu, since birth, has never been satisfied to stick with a formula. Each album has seen the band expand upon its previous incarnation and then, like a supernova, blow it up and transform again into something recognizable but completely new. ‘Värähtelijä’ continues in this vein, giving the band much more room to diverge and explore the vast regions of hypnotic progressive psychedelia and the nebulous outer limits of Scandinavian black metal. Songs explode with radiant ultraviolet color and plunge into the deep black darkness of innermost consciousness. If ‘Valonielu’ was the creation of a universe, ‘Värähtelijä’ is the magnification and expansion of its infinite boundaries. A 70+ minute sprawling voyage, ‘Värähtelijä’ more accurately represents the stunning live presence of the band where the songs often span new and previously unheard dimensions of form and structure. Not meant for genre purists, Oranssi Pazuzu are on a trip all their own; modern electric pioneers on an expedition to unlock the keys to the hidden spaces all around and inside us.

111 PART 2

Band:K-X-P
Album:111 PART 2
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

The esoteric electronic space rock saga continues Take the themes of: fear of war, paranoia, euphoria, dark sexuality and a cosmic new age and imagine them in the industrial backdrop of 1970s Sheffield and you have Timo Kaukolampi’s vision for what the fourth K-X-P album 'III Part II' sounds and looks like. The Finnish group – the core unit of which has now long comprised of the trio: Timo Kaukolampi (electronics, vocals and the ‘K’), Tuomo Puranen (bass, keyboards and the ‘P’), and alternating drummers (the ‘X’ – for the mystery) Tomi Leppänen and Anssi Nykänen – are once again found to be breaking territory in the second part of their album III. If Part I was the brooding, rising and tension-ensconced opening act then Part II is the climatic and explosive finale that wraps up the thirteen tracks that stretches across the two releases. It’s a rare feat to be able to create a second half to something that feels both unique and of its own character as well as be something that retains coherence and conclusion but K-X-P has succeeded in doing just that.

Praise for II & III Part I “Eccentric Finnish trancetechno fusion with ritualistic overtones” **** Mojo "a bold dazzling leap" **** The Guardian "a cruious amalgam of minimal techno, polar ambience and rock" Q "a kaleidoscopic host of vintage analogue effects, choirs, walls of guitar and epic keyboard melodies" 8/10 Uncut “their music is incredibly rhythmic, their grooves - paranoid dark disco and motorik - deep” Pitchfork "extraordinary" 8/10 Drowned In Sound "like Marc Bolan backed by ELP and LCD Soundsystem" The Times "a group who've perfected an enticing blend of trippy, electronic pop-driven adventures based loosely on Krautrock sensibilities" 8/10 DJ Mag

CHIEF

Band:TALMUD BEACH
Album:CHIEF
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Talmud Beach is a blues trio from the heartlands of Finland, releasing their second album Chief in March 2016. The new album carries with it the same praised spirit evoked on the debut: it puts a blues on your face, without pushing, pulling, or shouting. The boogie is still floating with the weight of a snowflake, but the colors and shades are more varied than on the vivid green debut. “Chinaman Blues” swamps; “Forest” is redolent and dark; “Mountain Man” is left in the white haze of the mountain top, and in the end a chief’s hat awaits you in all the colors of the rainbow. Talmud Beach is wandering the trails marked by artists like Robert and Blind Willie Johnson, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Canned Heat, Z Z Top, J.J. Cale, and 22-Pistepirkko. Today, music is often played at loud volume, and it has intensively produced and massive sounds. For Talmud Beach the quest for intensity has always gone beyond the volume knob - a quiet, sensitive approach is more effective. CD Format.

CYCLE OF REVENGE

Band:CONVULSE
Album:CYCLE OF REVENGE
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Death metal veterans rewrite the rules

The band's forthcoming, fourth album, Cycle of Revenge, has been in process for many months already, and during those months, the Convulse trio composed eight new songs. However, on Cycle of Revenge, Convulse really haven't gone back to their "death 'n' roll" mode, but have still made a radical musical shift. Try to imagine combining some of Pink Floyd's psychedelic, airy moments with Finnish prog-rock masters Kingston Wall's beautiful, ear-tickling melodies. Throw in the genuine angst and despair-ridden melancholia of Sentenced's Amok album, and even add some grooviness àla Sepultura's later era or Soulfly, then spice it all up with Rami Jämsä's trademark-ish throaty and belly-trembling death grunts. You may now have some sort of an idea what can be expected from Cycle of Revenge.

They deliver frenetically energised rock‘n’roll that draws from sources such as post-punk and the ‘70s West Coast (think Gun Club, FIDLAR, The Black Lips).

DIY magazine says “Virgin Kids share the same grime-under-fingernails, downright grubby mentality as fellow garage punks The Black Lips and Hinds. But with new song ‘Cracks in a Colour’, they form a gnarly manifesto of their own”

This is 8 tracks of scuzzy punk and surf rock. From the opening ‘Bruised Knees’, to the highlight of ‘Cracks in Colour’ and the climax of ‘Shrink Wrap’; “Greasewheel” captures the jubilant high’s and all encompassing, nightmarish low’s of young life in an touchable truth. It is delivere. CD Format.

 

 

WEIGHING SOULS WITH SAND

Band:ANGELIC PROCESS
Album:WEIGHING SOULS WITH SAND
Label:ROADBURN
Format:Double Vinyl LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

With a sound that fuses the layered guitar drone of MY BLOOD VALENTINE, the epic sound and tribal thump of NEUROSIS, the emotional bloodletting of JARBOE/SWANS, and complex, yet fluidly shifting time signatures, THE ANGELIC PROCESS have forged new musical ground and over the course of numerous on labels all over the world, have refined and defined a sound that one person described as "the sound my soul makes". THE ANGELIC PROCESS live is no less as intense. Blasting noise, complex melodies, droning guitar resonance, rippling bass, tom‐heavy tribal drums, and hauntingly emotional vocals collide to create violently ambient songs that have a definite shape and progression, but envelope the audience in warm, bombastic soundscapes.

New artwork by Mories of Gnaw Their Tongues.

Album:77 RUSTY TROMBONES
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Soul/Funk/Disco

"77 Rusty Trombones" is the final studio album by legendary and influential Miami singer, songwriter and producer Clarence Reid aka Blowfly, the original nasty rapper who passed in Mid- January. Reid had a career spanning 50 years that saw him pen songs for Betty Wright, K.C. & The Sunshine Band and Sam & Dave among others. The new album is a return to the form of his classic releases including "The Weird World of Blowfly" that heavily parodied R&B hits. “77 Rusty Trombones” features the standout tracks “If You Don’t Blow Me By Now” and “She’s Got A Weiner” that harken back to Clarence’s soul roots and are infused with his trademark humor.

Blowfly (Clarence Reid) had terminal cancer and died January 17th, this was the final recording of one of the most influential figures on the nascent Hip Hop scene way back when....

 

 

A BUEN PUERTO

Band:PIPPO SPERA
Album:A BUEN PUERTO
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

A record that sounds like a summertime sunset, if ever there was one. Lilting melodies, infused with an undercurrent of bossa nova and the drowsy, faded memory of sun-drenched islands. All of this melodic loveliness is made ever-so-groovy in an Afro-Cuban sort of way thanks to a mighty contribution from world famous percussionist Jorge Trasante, Totem drummer Roberto Galletti, and Limonada drummer José Luis Sosa. Pippo Spera came into the orbit of Uruguayan iconoclast Eduardo Mateo back during the days of El Kinto (one of that band’s finest songs is about a visit by Mateo to Pippo’s house). From 1967 to 1970, Pippo concentrated on studying classical guitar at the Conservatorio Nacional of Uruguay, until the military dictatorship closed the school. So, Pippo started his songwriter career, which culminated in 1975/1976 with the recording of "A Buen Puerto." As Pippo says, "It was a beautiful experience to me. I had the help of the best musicians in town, they were like brothers. At that time in Uruguay, nobody used to get money to perform in a recording studio; for the musicians it was a pleasure, it was just love of art..." After the release of this LP, Pippo decided to leave a Uruguay oppressed by a brutal dictatorship. He sailed to Brazil in a ship much like the one hovering behind him on the "A Buen Puerto" album. Brazil was indeed "a good port" for Pippo—he became friends with many of the best Brazilian musicians of those years: Milton Nascimento, Geraldo Azevedo, Renato Rocha, and Alceu Valença, and ended up writing for and playing on Nascimento’s "Clube da Esquina 2" album.

Four-panel insert w/lyrics in Spanish and English, photos, and info on Pippo - Infused with an undercurrent of bossa nova and the drowsy, faded memory of sun-drenched islands! - LP Limited to 500 copies

So, after a couple of years of silence Ponamero Sundown is finally back. We welcome you all to Veddesta, our brand new album. The plan behind the album was trying to renew ourselves both musically and soundwise but also working around the vinyl concept. There might be one or two new paths taken but mostly it's business as usuall, meaning loads of riffs and tons of groove. (Veddesta is by the way an industrial area in the northern parts of Stockholm where our home base was located for many years and where this album was written and mainly recorded.) This is a collaborational release between Transubstans Records and Ozium Records.

 

 

TRIGGER WARNING

Band:THE CHANCERS
Album:TRIGGER WARNING
Label:Unrest
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Reggae/Dub/Ska

The Chancers' fifth album, Trigger Warning, harnesses their unique blend of ska, soul and punk to a lyrical content which challenges and questions the verities of modern life. For anyone who ever wished the Sleaford Mods had the melodies to fill a Northern Soul dance floor, The Chancers deliver a searing commentary on sexual and political mores, backed by classic songwriting and melodic inventiveness. From the '60's flavoured rock of 'Blue Beat Attack' to the horn propelled grandeur of 'Without You', Trigger Warning runs the full gamut of musical influences while always sounding resolutely and unmistakably like The Chancers. You've never heard anything like this before. 180g Vinyl.

Format:CD

After reaching the top of the Billboard Rock Charts with his previous albums Do You Feel (2007), Of Men And Angels (2010), and the self-released Life Will Write The Words (2012), The Rocket Summer’s sixth album, Zoetic, marks a creative milestone for Texas-born songwriter & multiinstrumentalist Bryce Avary. The sonically and emotionally compelling tunes “Same Air,” ”Cold War,” and "Help Me Out" showcase Avary’s mature songwriting skills and studio mastery, while tapping into a wellspring of edgy inspiration that reflects the unique creative journey that produced the album.

"It's the most ‘alive’ music I've ever made,” Bryce Avary says of Zoetic. “I think that's why it sounds a bit different, because it's raw, creative expression with zero expectation or rules of any kind.” With never-ending support from a faithful legion of fans around the world, Zoetic is poised to kickstart the next phase of The Rocket Summer.

 

 

THEY ARE KILLING US

Band:LUMEN LAB
Album:THEY ARE KILLING US
Label:AAGOO RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Avantgarde/Electronic

Lumen lab is a project created by Diego Martínez in 2000. When he was fifteen, he surprised the electronic scene in Mexico (reserved then only to genres associated with dance music or late rave culture) with drum machines, secondhand synths and any device with which he could use to generate rhythmic noise and distortion. After two years of live performances linked to a post-industrial sound, Diego began to merge other influences such as glitch, the late nineties IDM and sounds associated to hip-hop and punk music. In 2004 the "enfant terrible of mexican electronic music" released his first album "Comiendo algodón en la pista de baile" (Eating cotton candy on the dance floor), published by the record label Abolipop in the boom of leftist electronic music in Mexico. It became one of the most important titles to strengthen a new scene more closely linked with experimentation. "They are killing us" has several collaborations, including his brother Israel Martinez, a recognized sound and interdisciplinary artist. Both codirect Abolipop and the digital publishing platform Suplex. For vocals, Chano collaborates. He was the voice of important bands of the crust and grindcore scene of Mexico in the nineties and the new millennium as Hydrophobia and Emphysema, besides collaborating with anarcho-punk bands like Fallas del Sistema. "They are killing us" is a convulsive and powerful work, the result of fifteen years of experimentation as Lumen lab and a social context that demands nothing less than a great energy and anger to get ahead, to preserve life, because they are killing us.

"They are killing us" is a convulsive and powerful work, the result of fifteen years of experimentation as Lumen lab and a social context that demands nothing less than a great energy and anger to get ahead, to preserve life, because they are killing us. 10" Vinyl.

 

 

GURU CHILD

Band:TATUM RUSH
Album:GURU CHILD
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

With the publication of “Guru child” Tatum Rush closes a chapter of his original songwriting coming of age. The chapter opened back in 2011 in a cement tower in the village of Brunnen, near the obscure Mahari- shi Mahesh Yogi temple, which was visited by personalities such as the Beatles and David Lynch. Björn Magnusson’s recording studio, filled with old clunky machines and an Auschwitz-coldness rising from the echo chambers, but a tropical heat in the music that was born. Cutting guitars, Motown grooves, and narratives of vacations in fifty-something shades of mingling and desire. The following sessions were scattered over a more extended period inspired by a long stay in a farm in a billionaire’s farm Brazil. The later songs are characterized by a flirtations with poetry and fantasies of luxury hotellerie, carnal projections, after-life reminiscences. The diversity of the songs and the sounds stand as a journey from analog to digital, from poetry to tabloids, from sincere fragility to cosmic confidence. This is first the first chapter...

 

 

ELVES RED SPRITES BLUE JETS

Band:INUTILI
Album:ELVES RED SPRITES BLUE JETS
Label:AAGOO RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:AVANT/POST ROCK

Elves, red sprites, blue jets is the third full length album from Inutili. Emerging from the vibrant rock scene in Teramo, Italy they continue to change, without completely abandoning their peculiar character. In their new songs, the tracks are less dilated. Improvisation is channelled in a form closer to the classic song, but in practice every track is different. There are still passages of epic psychedelia that could and SHOULD go on forever but the real news is the addiction of the sinewy vocals, half-sung, half-grumbled. The vinyl version is a uniform work, it’s heavy and majestic ringing with energy. The CD version has six bonus songs that show the various ways that the band is testing new mutations. Elves, red sprites, blue jets is idiosyncratic, primal and euphoric and yet somehow manages to stay catchy.

Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

HANGMAN'S CHAIR from Paris is back this year with its fourth album, This is not supposed to be positive produced by Francis Caste. Over the years and the records, the band has gone beyond their early stoner/doom sound and now finds its own style with colder and simpler songs (still heavy though) and more melodic vocals with Cedric (singer/guitarist) fantastic voice that reminds us of the 90s downtempo hardcore bands like LIFE OF AGONY, ONLY LIVING WITNESS or SECTION 8. Of course, the main inspiration is ALICE IN CHAINS but we can hear some gothic metal touches like TYPE O'NEGATIVE or even THE CURE. With this new record, HANGMAN'S CHAIR simply becomes the best French stoner/doom act.

De Secretis Naturae Alchymica

Band:TEMPLE OF GNOSIS
Album:De Secretis Naturae Alchymica
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Temple Of Gnosis is a symphonic occult death/doom project, inspired by the Western esoteric traditions, one of the most admirable musical manifestation of the alchemical process of Enlightenment, representing the dissolution and deconstruction of spiritual elements to form a new form of being. A musical catharsis, underlying the process of emptying and cleansing, the destruction of the original structure in order to build a new one from the ashes. Spread by the sombre spoken vocals, coming from the catacomb of the inner self, Temple of Gnosis states that there’s no enlightenment without traveling through the darkness. Light, as a state of mind, and darkness go together and act as a single dimension, of which they are the opposite poles. Music consists of a combination of dark ambient, doom-styled & sludgy guitars and death metal vocals, all supported by heavy symphonic and dark keyboards on an unique shape. The goal is to create a dark atmosphere that represents the process shadow-work and discharge of dark emotions, and to represent many other aspects and symbols of the occult tradition transcended through the music.

 

 

Cendres Celestes

Band:CANTIQUE LEPREUX
Album:Cendres Celestes
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

MÉTAL NOIR QUÉBÉCOIS !

Born in 2014, Cantique Lépreux feeds on Black Metal from all eras, wallowing in its essence. Inspired by the wilderness of Québec, the Occult, Death and Fear, the band creates music that is at times grim, at other times melancholic; a work born of passion, paying homage to the legends of Black Metal.

Cantique Lépreux hail from a scene that seem to endure as an archaic artefact of a genre that was immeasurably shaped by the early Scandinavian Black Metal scene and literally, there could be no more suitable place then Quebec to shape such cold and mournful black metal hymns.

 

 

LUWTE - LP

Band:Fluisteraars
Album:LUWTE - LP
Label:Eisenwald
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Black Metal

180G CLEAR VINYL EDITION IN CUSTOM GATEFOLD PACKAGE!

The band's debut album titled "Dromers", was firmly rooted in the fertile soil cultivated by Drudkh, Primordial or even Agalloch, nevertheless built its own aura. Excellent reviews at the press, whilst also garnering end of year list entries and other critical accolades along the way, hailed Fluisteraars as one of the new potent stalwarts of Dutch black metal. Blending the welcoming, epic affair of their debut with more harsh and biting effort's more reminiscent of 90s black metal, Luwte captures the band from a slightly different, yet none less qualitative angle. While the band had already shown their effective vigour with time stretching melodic and edgy grandeur, this second album is very much the more ferocious finished extension to it. An unpolished yet elaborate production with final mastering duties taken over by Patrick W. Engel at TEMPLE OF DISHARMONY perfectly suits the dynamic, intelligent nature of the music.

URERE is the 3rd full length record for KRATER. Created with blasting whirlwinds, and the gloom of low tempo, URERE was composed with the mind of combining the most diverse musical outbreaks to create a fitting soundtrack of reflection for a disturbed personal vision. The music and lyrics hover in a state of hate, lunacy, frustration and cathartic outbreaks. URERE speaks to the listener on numerous levels, using influences of Black-, Death- and Doom- Metal in synergy with different vocal styles from screaming, choirs, and whispers.

DELVE INTO THE MYSTERIES OF TRANSCENDENCE

Band:SUSPIRAL
Album:DELVE INTO THE MYSTERIES OF TRANSCENDENCE
Label:I VOIDHANGER
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Supremely dark and majestic, SUSPIRAL's music is a coalescence of frantic guitar-working and mesmerizing, noisy solos raising from chaos like bloody spears pointed at a black hole sky. The band's apocalyptic and unmerciful assault is tempered by the obscure, trance-inducing aura of the melodies, and by a well-structured songwriting, so dense of shades, sonic details and unexpected twists and turns that the 33 minutes of “Delve Into The Mysteries Of Transcendence” end up looking like an odyssey. The purpose is to explore the true depths of darkness instead of safely swimming on its surface, like too many bands are content to do. But SUSPIRAL have no fear to drown: they bravely jump into the vacuum, sure to ascend.

Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Born as a new project from A.P. (Alex Poole of Chaos Moon, Esoterica, and Krieg), SKÁPHE released an acclaimed, eponymous debut fulllength of experimental black metal via Fallen Empire Records in 2014. Now turned into a duo thanks to the addition of amazing singer D.G. (from the Icelandic black metal rising stars Misþyrming and Naðra), SKÁPHE return with their sophomore album “Skáphe²” bringing with them an even more ominous and deadly sound. Supremely obscure, visionary and soaked in anguish, “Skáphe²” can be described as a scaring mind-altering experience, a psychonautic voyage through innermost regions. A.P.'s cyclopian and chaotic black metal riffs, and D.G.'s imposing vocals trace cavernous melodies that are left to rot into a freezing, infinite vacuum of non-existence, while the thunderous bass and drums alternate funereal tempos with convulsed, frantic rhythms. Macabre, enigmatic and more structured than what could appear at first, SKÁPHE's music is like abstract darkness struggling to take shape.

Format:CD
Genre:Metal

“Rooms” deals with death, memories, and the demons that accompanied a difficult time for the founding members. With new members Floris and Guntram TODTGELICHTER set out to return to old strength, but the most important change comes with the switch to of long-time band member Marta taking over all vocals and screams as well as the addition of organ player Frieder, who implements church organ and 70/80ies organs and synths into the songs – maintaining all the calm and melancholic but also the menacing and agressive moments the band is known for, adding a dark and sacral atmosphere. The fitting and simplistic cover artwork comes from the renowned Norwegian artist Truls Espedal, best known to the metal scene for his work for the Avantgarde/Prog Vikings ENSLAVED.

ARMAGEDDON SURVIVAL GUIDE

Band:DAYGLO ABORTIONS
Album:ARMAGEDDON SURVIVAL GUIDE
Label:Unrest
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

The Dayglo Abortions 9th full-length album, Armageddon Survival Guide, proves that The Cretin still has what it takes to write legendary punk songs with the same energy that he harnessed when writing their first album released in 1981. This new album combines their unique blend of catchy punk rock, comical humor and pissed off political rhetoric, with lyrical content that challenges and disputes the verities of modern life. Canada’s bad guys are back with their first new record since 2003. Since the departure of their original drummer, The Cretin (guitarist, lead vocals, song writer) is the one original member, but they remain the same as the old days; fast, humorous, sarcastic and nihilistic, mixing fast hardcore punk with touch of metal and ugly rock ‘n’ roll. This new Dayglo record definitely goes back to their roots with song writing and sound both favouring the punk side of the spectrum. Classic Dayglo Abortions style here goes hand in hand with feelings that are not so far from bands like Antiseen, and their anti-social nihilism attitude. In general, this is the bands best material since their classic records from the 80’s.

ASEXUAL ANGER

Band:LOVE SEX MACHINE
Album:ASEXUAL ANGER
Label:LOST PILGRIMS
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

«Deafening isn't a word strong enough when it comes to describe the sound of Lille, northern France's LOVE SEX MACHINE. Their brutal, low-end-obsessed, modern approach to sludge metal garnered them some instant followers with the release of their 2012 self-titled album. Four years and some line-up changes later, the band returns with «Asexual Anger», which achieves to sound even more crushing and vicious. The core of their sound hasn't changed : gut-punching guitars, irresistible slow and chuggy riffs that create an apocalyptic wall of sound only pierced by hellish shrieks. Still entirely recorded, mixed and mastered by themselves, with exquisite artwork designed by Førtifem, «Asexual Anger» is an eight-tracks lesson in absolute heaviness. An unrepentantly ugly record, without any other aim than knocking you down to the ground.»

 

 

OPUS DEATH - LP

Band:EXHUMATION
Album:OPUS DEATH - LP
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Death Metal

Death Metal by EXHUMATION deserves the term „classical": It is sinister, clanging and evil. The Eastern Asian roots are undeniable, but now the music is darker than ever before. The album offers an improved sound quality and reminds the listener of the legendary MAYHEM line-up, early DEICIDE! Modern metal tends to go ways not everyone is fond of. But change is not always equal to more progression or mixing of genres. Now EXHUMATION's second opus is ready, and it is colder and more pitiless than the first release. Still it relies on its Eastern Asian roots; but now they are buried underneath a thick layer of classical Death Metal which has an uncanny resemblance to the Black Metal of the late 80s. Available on heavy 180g vinyl with printed inner-sleeve and gatefold, coming with a poster in A2 size.

 

 

DELUGE

Band:LUBBERT DAS
Album:DELUGE
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

LUBBERT DAS hail from the town where Hieronymous Bosch was educated (Nijmegen, The Netherlands), but that isn’t the only connection they have with him. The music those guys create is directly linked to his art, and it even sounds as if the songs were written at the same time Bosch was working on his paintings. The guitars freeze with their sound, the drums pound like the hooves of the outbursting demons of hell and the vocals call upon us from inferno, telling us about the end of the world. Hell is coming and there is nothing we can do about it.
