ASPHALT FOR EDEN

Band:DALEK
Album:ASPHALT FOR EDEN
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Rap/Hip Hop

Conceived in New Jersey from its emerging DIY scene from the late ‘90s, cult hop-hop trio DÄLEK were known as pioneers over the last fifteen years or so of an intriguing sound which fused a blend of progressive hip-hop artistry supported by a rhythmic backdrop consisting of sonic experimentation through noise music and dark ambient (they would be dubbed by journalists as what would happen when you mix Public Enemy and My Bloody Valentine). Their singularity would be highlighted in four defining milestone full-length albums released on Mike Patton’s Ipecac Recordings (one of them being their “Absence” masterpiece LP from 2005), along with live actions where the band would support the likes of Tool and The Melvins, and even collaborate with the likes of artists such as Faust. In Spring 2015 mastermind MC Dälek (a.k.a. Will Brooks, with the blessing of ex-member/co-producer Oktopus) revived DÄLEK after a hiatus with a new lineup which now includes DJ rEk and Mike Swarmbots and are now preparing to release their new album “Asphalt For Eden” which will be the first official DÄLEK release since their last full-length, 2009’s “Gutter Tactics”. “Asphalt For Eden” sees a new creative peak for DÄLEK and will bring a new awareness for this cult hip-hop entity now resurrected once again and ready to show a formidable display of true hip hop artistry and experimentation through their new album and the plethora of touring the band have planned in support of it. A band which many see as one of the most genuine underground DIY hip hop iconoclasts. 

“Asphalt For Eden” is the first official DÄLEK release since their 2009 album “Gutter Tactics” and marks the return of the originators of hip-hop noise ambient experimentation after a long hiatus ;  For 20 years DÄLEK are considered pioneers in urban hip-hop and one of the first bands to combine hip-hop with harsh noise and experimental music.

THE WOUND AND THE BOW

Band:GERYON
Album:THE WOUND AND THE BOW
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

GERYON is a two-man NY-based avant-garde technical prog-death metal band comprised of one half of KRALLICE, namely bassist/vocalist Nicholas McMaster and drummer Lev Weinstein.

Solely through bass guitar, drums, and vocals, GERYON conjure a singular vision through complex layers and meticulously crafted tones where dissonance and melody maintain that equilibrium though the band’s chaotic sound. Taking from the blueprint through the duo’s experience in Krallice and Astomatous (the two-piece band McMaster and Weinstein had years before joining Krallice while they were Chicago-based, which was also a progressive metal outfit that consisted only of bass, drums, and vocals), GERYON while seemingly stripped down to the bare minimum without any electric guitars in the mix whatsoever, the sounds that conjure from the duo’s new album “The Wound And The Bow” (which follows 2013’s selftitled debut) present an enveloping and overwhelming sound picture. A bizarre, strange yet unforgettable and twisted sonic journey to behold.

For fans of Krallice, Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, and overall technical dissonant avant-garde death metal

 

 

SHIFTING MIRRORS

Band:BLAAK HEAT
Album:SHIFTING MIRRORS
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Formed in Paris by guitarist/singer Thomas Bellier (ex-Spindrift) in 2008, Blaak Heat relocated to Los Angeles in 2012 withdrummer Mike Amster and bassist Tom Davies (formerly of psych mavericks Nebula). Dropping the former name of Blaak Heat Shujaa, they became more primal, more indigenous and expanded the Eastern influence by incoorperating more traditional instruments and using percussionist Nelson Bragg (The Brian Wilson Group) to embellish the developing sound. ' Shifting Mirrors’ is an album that is as intriguing as it is perilously unrelenting. By exploring a range of tonalities, tempos, and traditional soundscapes, Blaak Heat are able to traverse a number of musical territories. The lead track from the album ‘ Sword of Hakim’ demonstrates the best of the bands unruly, bludgeoning guitar tone, whilst also creating a technically composite and solid rhythmic approach, which brutally rolls out, leaving the listener feeling transcended.

CORNUCOPIA DELLA MORTE

Band:BLIZARO
Album:CORNUCOPIA DELLA MORTE
Label:I VOIDHANGER
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

John Gallo, the unsung American master of horror doom, is back with the long-awaited sophomore album by BLIZARO. No less adventurous than its predecessor (“City Of The Living Nightmare”, 2010) or the “Strange Doorways” collection of demos and rarities, "Cornucopia della Morte" is however more powerful, dynamic, focused and refined. Written and recorded in 2013, the album was then shelved to make room to Gallo's uncontrollable bursts of creativity which lead to JOHN GALLOW, a solo project that debuted on I, Voidhanger Records in 2014 with the acclaimed doom masterpiece “Violet Dreams”. Now that BLIZARO are writing new material, “Cornucopia della Morte” has been called back from its provisional grave and wrapped in an imaginative cover painting by Dan Bell which perfectly captures BLIZARO's penchant for all things horror, doomy and weirdly dark. Driven by Gallo's rip-roaring guitar-playing and slanted vocals, and by the formidable rhythm section of Mark Rapone (bass) and Mike Waske (drums), “Cornucopia della Morte” conjures up the ghosts of Goblin, Black Sabbath, Paul Chain, Pentagram and Candlemass at the crossroad of doom, prog, psych rock, heavy metal, and the Italian horror soundtracks from the 70's. The album features 8 new BLIZARO songs, plus a shattering cover of "Voyage To Hell" (Paul Chain Violet Theatre).

THE BIG FIT

Band:SKATING POLLY
Album:THE BIG FIT
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Skating Polly began six years ago – while members Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse were still in middle school. Now, three albums later, with extensive U.S. and U.K. tours under their belt, the punk-infused pop duo are releasing their newest album, The Big Fit, their most fully realized collection of head-bopping, not quite sugar-sweet pop music infused with visceral, distortion-drenched punk sounds. It’s raw, infectious and inciting. It’s real. Last seen supporting an approving Babes In Toyland In the UK.

"Sit up and listen. - NME

“So happy that there were two young women out there making good music on their own in the middle of America.” –Exene Cervenka - X

SENTIENCE

Band:SKARLETT RIOT
Album:SENTIENCE
Label:SR RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Skarlett Riot’s burgeoning reputation as one of the UK’s finest young bands continued to build with their last EP ‘We Are The Brave’, not only with the critics, but also in the live arena with the band packing out their own headline tours of the UK and pulling more high profile support slots, including a tour with Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G. (with Skarlett being personally invited to sing Gus’ ‘Long Way Down’ single at every show) as well as many more festival slots. A February 2016 UK tour with fast-rising New Zealand act Devilskin sees Skarlett Riot bringing down the curtain on the ‘We Are The Brave’ record but fear not, as their brand new EP, ‘Sentience’ is due May 2016. Another huge step up in the band’s song writing, ‘Sentience’ is powerful, edgy and hugely melodic and will be supported with another extensive bout of touring.

“Fires off like a grappling hook purpose-built to host the quartet towards stardom..A band ready to contend for the top." KKKK - Kerrang! Magazine

 

 

STELLA PORTA

Band:BARDUS
Album:STELLA PORTA
Label:SOLAR FLARE
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

If the Melvins, Eyehategod, Unsane, and Queens of the Stone Age all somehow co-fathered some ungodly offspring “ has been written by Metalsucks as an accurate description of what Bardus sounds like. Formed in 2011 in Philadelphia, PA, Bardus has been daring listeners to define their sound, which has been described as “genredefying impetuosity” by Heavy Planet. Citing heavy, sludgy, groove, psychedelia, noise rock influences, Bardus continues to challenge listeners. Following their debut full length “Solus” self released in 2013, Bardus has been creating a name for themselves through DIY touring and playing support for national acts. Bardus was chosen by Metalsucks to take part in their collaboration with Converse Rubber Tracks in 2014 which helped them reach more people ears. Continued touring and support has brought them to where they’re at today. Through their hard hitting style of music, Bardus has continued to develop a sound of their own and it can be heard on their newest full length, Stella Porta, which will be released on Solar Flare Records.

“Bardus make the kind of grungy, stonery noise rock that will remind why you ever loved the genre in the first place" – Metalsucks

DODSSKRIK

Band:SVARTTJERN
Album:DODSSKRIK
Label:SOULSELLER
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

SVARTTJERN was originally formed as a two-man-project in 2003 by HansFyrste and HaaN. The two brothers soon decided to bring up a full line-up in order to do some live shows, and to take the band on new levels. Later that same year Skabb, Grimdun and Fjellnord joined the duo, and SVARTTJERN started to work on their first demo recordings. Over the next years two demos were recorded, “Blasphemic War” and “Raped by Svarttjern”, but SVARTTJERN were still working towards their own sound, so not much time was given to the demos afterwards. In 2007, SVARTTJERN parted ways with Skabb, and Terror came in on the bass, bringing fresh blood. The band was now ready to record a three track demo to finally show the sound they had been working on for so many years. “Demo 07” was sent out to labels and only printed in very few numbers for sale. SVARTTJERN signed to Schwarzdorn Production and released their debut album “Misanthropic Path of Madness” in 2009, which received great feedback and reviews from all over the world. The second full-length, "Towards the Ultimate", was released in 2011 via Agonia Records and took their extreme art to the next level. Between 2012 and 2013, SVARTTJERN mostly focused on playing live shows and chose to end their bond with Agonia Records. In 2014 the third album "Ultimatum Necrophilia" was released by NoiseArt Records and showed an even more brutal side. Later that year the band managed to get on tour with some of the most iconic bands within the scene, namely Behemoth, Cradle of Filth, Inquisition and In Solitude. Now, SVARTTJERN will wreak havoc again with their new record!

Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Purple Hill Witch was summoned out of the norwegian countryside for about three years ago. The young trio (who's members are also to be found in Spectral Haze, Condor and Flight) are under heavy influence of bands such as Pentagram, Witchfinder General and Black Sabbath, complimented by the filthiness of old heavy- and thrash- metal bands from the 70's and 80's. After spending their first couple of years playing alongside many great bands in Oslo's shady basements, they crossed the norwegian border for the first time this november, as they hit the european roads together with the doom legends of Lord Vicar.

After 2012's "Earthmother" Seamount took a break from live appearances and for the first time slowed its writing process until they gathered up their ideas for this new 2015 release of their fifth studio recording “Nitro Jesus” that brings back the straight ahead vibe of Sacrifice and NTODRM, prioritizing a more hook oriented style that puts Seamounts adroitness for rhythm and melody to a prominent forefront, proudly stating the idea of traditional songwriting above all else.

BURNING VILLAGE

Band:MOUNTAIN WITCH
Album:BURNING VILLAGE
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

"At the behest of our good friends over at This Charming Man Records, I’ve been sat on this for a while now, and being a long term diehard fan of the band, it fair to say it’s nearly killed me. I will however open with this – For those of you who have followed Mountain Witch over the years, you may be somewhat taken a back by trio’s most recent sound. It’s out with the traditional sombre doom-groove and in with something wholly more, well, retro. Fortunately the change to the band’s dynamic has been pretty gradual, with the introduction of a third member and the subsequent release of Cold River, the band laid the ground work for what they have progressed to today. So the exchange of fuzz to funk shouldn’t pose too much of a shock to the system. Fear not though, when I say that (often dreaded) four letter F word, they’ve not gone all stacked heels and slap bass. Don’t think Bootsy Collins, no, instead imagine if Grand Funk had one day picked up a Ouija board and got heavily into the works of Aleister Crowley and Vincent Price, then gone on to release We’re an American Doom Band… this is exactly how that would have sounded. Straight out of the gates Burning Village states it’s new and uncompromising intentions and opening with a subtle use of Hammer-House-esque samples they’ve managed to reaffirm that not all of the band’s doom heavy origins have been cast to the back burner. Not by a long shot. While the tone, song structure and production all feel like they’ve been pulled right out of the early 70′s the trio have managed to craft something that by the same token still feels heavily modern and unique. Not that the aforementioned is in anyway a band thing. Hell, I long for a return to those simpler, analogue days, and after the bitter disappointment that was Uncle Acid’s Night Creeper earlier in the year, it’s fantastic to hear an album that can actually conjure up all that retro feeling and essence while not feeling precocious or like the audible equivalent of watching paint dry. Sure, many of you’ve become akin to the slower and darker of the band’s first three outings may not be instantly won over or drawn to Burning Village, I urge you to give it a few listens. Once the initial shock of the change has settled in, you can, and no doubt will, see exactly what this album is – An absolute powerhouse of early 70′s inspired occult rock filled with more satisfying riff hungry eeriness than a Pentagram encore at a black mass under a full moon on October 31st." ~ Jay – Ride With The Devil

WHO CARES WHAT THE LASER SAYS

Band:WHITE WINE
Album:WHO CARES WHAT THE LASER SAYS
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

White Wine began as a solo project of Joe Haege (31knots, Tu Fawning, Menomena, Dodos). It was simply a place for his ideas that didn't fit his other bands. After writing and recording 2 albums ("Chromakey" on Polyvinyl Records and "In Every Way But 1" on Discolexique records) he made a plan to tour Europe as a way to visit friends. Not one for having a laptop as his bandmate, he asked his good friend, Fritz Brückner, who was the sound man for Tu Fawning and Menomena, to be his band for the tour. Without a computer they managed to put together a set that had each of them playing synths, guitars, drums, bass, samples…and sometimes all in 1 song. The tour went incredibly well by all accounts. Presented with the offer of a cheap apartment right next door to Fritz's, Joe found himself, only a few months later, at a crossroads that his words will explain best: "I was in my mid 30's, my entire adult life focussed on music/acting/art. No kids, no girlfriend. I was living in LA, the crown Jewel of American excess, success, failure and synthetic life. How could I not jump at the chance to put the romance of Europe into a more realistic view while creating more music?" Now a year and a half later they have built their own recording studio (Haunted Haus Studios) completed a new album, "Who Cares What The Laser Says?" (This Charming Man Records) and gained another member, Chistian "Kirmes" Kühr (Zentral Heizung Des Todes). Having now reverted to a conventional 3 piece lineup, they are doing anything but playing it safe. Brückner has finally integrated his skills as a classically trained bassoon player into the band, while Haege is once again putting his penchant for cheap theater antics to work with the new stage show, and the endless supply of ability and talent in Mr. Kühr has only begun to show itself in with intense drumming and guitar playing. For the immediate future White Wine will be touring in support of their soon-to-be released album and doing what they can to showcase the humanity in music: the madness, the fun, the sadness, the creepiness and the endless complications.

BAD BLOOD - LP

Band:CLOWNS
Album:BAD BLOOD - LP
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Combining a vicious base layer of punishing punk rock combined with influences that range from 77’ punk, to underground Australian rock, as well as thrash, doom, noise and powerpop all loaded with chaos, energy and fun. Clowns really know no boundaries in regards to leaving punters stoked that they left their couches and came out to see them at a show. With two full length LP’s under their belt including 2013’s “I’m Not Right” which ranked in at number 5 of national radio's "Short Fast Loud' top 40 releases of 2013, as well as the already highly acclaimed follow up LP "Bad Blood" released in early 2015, Clowns are heavily equipped with the right credentials to back up their impressive live show. Both of these records are out on highly esteemed Australian label “Poison City Records”, which the band have a strong and proud working relationship with, as well as having North American distribution through “No Idea Records” in USA. With over 300 shows since the bands inception, shedding the lifeblood of Melbourne hardcore punk across South-East Asia, China, New Zealand, Australia and just recently USA; not to mention appearances at SXSW in Texas, MIDI Festival in China and many wild Australian East Coast shows, it’s safe to say that Clowns have a strong thirst for being on the road.

 

 

INCREASING THE MINIMUM RAGE

Band:FAINTEST IDEA
Album:INCREASING THE MINIMUM RAGE
Label:TNS RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Reggae

Kicking around the streets of sea port market town Kings Lynn in one form or another since 2008, the rudeboy street punks of Faintest Idea will release their new album ‘Increasing The Minimum Rage’ via Manchester-based punk label TNSrecords.

What started out as a visceral punk band venting their political angst, Faintest Idea have slowly developed their own signature blend of street punk with horns as over time their two-tone, ska and reggae influences naturally bled through. They might have a different sound, but they’re still as pissed off as ever, with the current austerity measures from the Tory government raining misery over the country giving them plenty of ammunition. Throughout the album the lyrics tackle current global issues such as ecological destruction, the failures of capitalism, the seeming futility of voting and the rising problems with mental health.

 

 

UNTAMED

Band:ILL WICKER
Album:UNTAMED
Label:THE SIGN RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Folk

Gothenburg based Ill Wicker declares with their second album ” Untamed" that prog-rock is still vital. During dark gatherings a charming and seductive tale of the "Untamed” is told. The seven chapter story folds out in a place were the rules set up for acoustic folk is not applied. The circle of six that is Ill Wicker have extended their sound and they are stretching out their arms around a larger universe vibrating of beauty, demonic desperation and life.

"...this remarkable six-piece from Gothenburg burn with such fire and intensity that it’s almost as if they stumbled upon their own dark forest magic in a hermetically sealed universe parallel to that in which Comus and the Incredible String Band once existed – as if two people in two different places discovered electricity via two different routes. Yes, that good.....” - Hugh Dellar, Shindig!-Magazine

Band:ILL WICKER
Album:UNTAMED - LP
Label:THE SIGN RECORDS
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Psych/Folk

Gothenburg based Ill Wicker declares with their second album ” Untamed" that prog-rock is still vital. During dark gatherings a charming and seductive tale of the "Untamed” is told. The seven chapter story folds out in a place were the rules set up for acoustic folk is not applied. The circle of six that is Ill Wicker have extended their sound and they are stretching out their arms around a larger universe vibrating of beauty, demonic desperation and life.

"...this remarkable six-piece from Gothenburg burn with such fire and intensity that it’s almost as if they stumbled upon their own dark forest magic in a hermetically sealed universe parallel to that in which Comus and the Incredible String Band once existed – as if two people in two different places discovered electricity via two different routes. Yes, that good.....” - Hugh Dellar, Shindig!-Magazine

BRANCHES

Band:HUNT
Album:BRANCHES
Label:LOVELY
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

Branches is the majestic, yet intimate second full length album from Swedish indie band Hunt. Always embodying the deepest emotions, Hunt’s guitar driven pop leaves the listener swaying between feelings of complete forsakenness and distant hope. If the bands debut album Dark Come Sooner (Kning Disk) was the musical equivalent of being lost in a rural snow ridden landscape, with lead vocalist Susanna Brandin's voice as the sole beacon of light in the far distance, Branches is the more urban after math. The sense of being forsaken still remains, but on Branches it’s rather an eternal time lapse of cold rain drizzling against a backdrop of street lights that obstacles the journey towards that remote salvation.

CHROME CASSETTES

Band:COSMIC ROUGH RIDERS
Album:CHROME CASSETTES
Label:YOU ARE THE COSMOS
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Psych/Folk

Daniel Wylie, doesn't have a jaggy beard and "Chrome Cassettes", wasn't recorded in a log cabin in the Appalachian Mountains. However, it was recorded on a shoestring budget, although the power and melodic beauty of this record transcends any birthing obstacles.Cosmic Rough Riders are best known for their 100,000 selling (Silver in the UK), 2001 album "Enjoy The Melodic Sunshine", which was released on Alan McGee's short lived Poptones imprint. ETMS produced two top 40 UK singles. The band appeared on Top of the Pops and performed sold out tours of the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA. Writer and producer of ETMS album, Daniel Wylie, has reactivated his original band name for this new album.Recorded at La Chunky Studios in Glasgow, "Chrome Cassettes", opens with the Neil Youngesque, balls out, "Yesterdays's a Waste of Time", a six and a half minute, melodic scorcher with stunning end solos by album co‐producer Johnny Smillie. The focus for the most part is on loud guitars and Wylie's trademark ultra tuneful melodies. There are also a few musical diversions into Beck style fucked up acoustic folk.Daniel Wylie still records all his new song ideas and demos straight to C90 Chrome Cassettes, on an old 80s ghetto blaster and that's where the idea for the album title came from.

HEARTS AND ARROWS

Album:HEARTS AND ARROWS
Label:YOU ARE THE COSMOS
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:POWER POP

28 tracks first time on Double Vinyl & Bonus EP !

Formed in Ohio in 1969 and sharing a love of the hard harmonies of British Invasion acts and the jangle and chime of West Coast folk‐rock, Blue Ash have tended to be overlooked as the powerpop progenitors they undoubtedly were, being less glamorously doomed than Big Star and less driven into the popular consciousness than The Raspberries or Badfinger...

" Listening is like falling in love with music all over again. Thrill to the diamond‐hard shimmer of 'Plain To See' and 'Things Have Changed' and wonder how the hell the band weren't massive; dig the sheen and shine of the Pippermint Studio Demos and fantasise about how many more of the 200+ leftlovers might be as good. But most of all, buy this thing. Right now! " -5/5 - Shindig! Magazine

LORD SPEED MY HURRICANE

Band:THE CAROUSELS
Album:LORD SPEED MY HURRICANE
Label:YOU ARE THE COSMOS
Format:Vinyl 7 Inch
Genre:Psych/Folk

So who on earth are The Carousels? Hailing from the distillery town of Keith in north‐east Scotland, best known as the home of Chivas Regal whisky, the band have existed in various shapes and forms since 2010. The Carousels formed out of necessity; to carry on in the fine tradition of bands from their area. They come from a place where the likes of The Byrds, Gram Parsons and Gene Clark are still as important to people as they always were and this shines through in their music. Indeed, the great art of the melody, the soaring harmony and the chiming jangle of the twelve‐string have been passed down, taught and copied like some kind of ancient musical recipe. It's true, The Carousels exist in many ways like a collective, with band members old and new dropping in and out whenever suits. Once a Carousel, always a Carousel, if you will. The band's debut LP 'Sweet Northern Light' followed on from the well‐received 'Call Along The Coast' EP and was written and recorded in their hometown and mastered by Mike Denton of The Lucid Dream. It also fell on the back of a host of successful high‐profile gigs, not least a sell‐ out show at The Cavern Club in Liverpool as part of 2012's International Pop Overthrow Festival. Furthermore, a feature on that performance appeared in the local Liverpool press, where they received a nod of approval from Barry Sutton of The La's, one of their all‐time favourite bands. The Carousels' sets at the legendary Northern Star Records Weekenders were well received and new LP 'Love Changes Like The Seasons' (2014). And now, two new tracks included on a beautiful 7” Vinyl!

Label:TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

With its debut LP, SOON forges an unlikely hybrid of dark doom and heavy psychedelics, conjuring low‐end storms and balancing mettle with melodic finesse. Rather than using low, slow riffs as dredging sinkholes, the Chapel Hill, N.C. quartet keeps its strong forward pushes devoid of any dead weight. Recorded with engineer Kris Hilbert (Torch Runner, Between the Buried And Me, The Body) at the helm, SOON, whose members also contribute to The Love Language, Bitter Resolve and Grohg, draws from a deep well of influence and experience in crafting this intricate balance of power and grace, without sacrificing its titanic heft.

Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

After 4 years of band’s successful 2 full-length Rural, the Umeå (Sweden) post hardcore band comes back with their new fulllength All is Left to See, based on the lyrical concept of 'Mörkrets Kärna’ (Swedish for “the Dark Core”), the album showcases the band most experimental album, Moloken clearly has no intention of being trapped in any corner of genre-fascism, but rather working with an "anything goes” attitude. All Is Left To See was mostly recorded live at the famous Tonteknik Studio in their home town Umeå. This is a self-lived experience of true human darkness when the breakdown of a loved one spiralled down a very dark path, acting out in an aggressive, depressed, paranoid and manipulative behavior. Could this be the end? All is left to see…

BUILDING THE BEAST

Band:STILL ILL
Album:BUILDING THE BEAST
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

After many shows and festival appearances with bands like Madball, Nasty, No Turning Back, Born From Pain, Desolated, Malevolence and many more,now they thought the time has come to release the first full-length record called “Building The Beast”!

"Building The Beast" is a concept record being about how society and people are turning into things they once fought. The metaphorical beast is built by each and everyone of us, guided by greed, malice and anger. Most of the songs are about some specific topics which are in our point of view main problems of the modern world. Misguiding media, abusement of power, racism and facism, people caught in despair and being without hope. In some songs and somewhere between the lines there is still a glance of hope and some points where we could still turn those things around - if we act before it is too late.

Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

One of the darkest albums of the German Death Metal Underground is finally being repressed: ‘O Agios Pethane’ by BLOOD, which is THE reference value from 1993. This hybrid of Death Metal and Grind, combined with a little Thrash Metal and Punk is a benchmark of brutal music: a twisted mood, neck-twisting blast passages, sick bass-solos and bellowing vocals are mixed into one single dark brew – an album that deserves its credit as a legend. BLOOD is the oldest German Grind band (since 1986!), and amongst acts such as NAPALM DEATH, EXTREME NOISE TERROR and AGTHOCLES one of the oldest bands still in the game! BLOOD never sold their ideals and their soul – this you can experience listening to ‘O Agios Pethane’! The legend as a digipak with an eight-page Booklet! The first 100 copies also include a poster in A2 format and a logo button.

In September 1995 the Node line up was completely turned over, with the new vocalist/guitarist Gary D’Eramo, new bass player Klaus Mariani, new drummer John Manti and Steve Minelli of course, Node released in December 1995 the second demo “Ask”. “Sweatshops”, this is the name of their 2nd full lenght, was out in February 2002 through Scarlet. The style seems to be a mix between the wide classic/heavy atmospheres with an obsessive and aggressive interpretation of the north-european death metal. In August they are ready to record a new album: “Das Kapital”. This album was a big surprise for all (fans & critics). In the beginning of 2005, band decided to enter the studio anyway, without the label’ support… Recording the fourth album, still at the Underground Studio. “As God Kills” is the name of the fourth full length album was mastered by Goran Finnberg (The Mastering Room), it was published by the german label Massacre Records on 20 May 2006.
