Genre:Blues

Fresh back from their travels in Europe and mid-west America, not to mention three major British Blues festivals last year, the much talked about Russ Tippins and his electric band have wasted no time getting back into the studio to record their second album. Their debut CD, 2010’s ‘Electrickery’ was Classic Rock Magazine’s album of the month on it’s release, and has since earned them plaudits from Blues writers and broadcasters on both sides of the Atlantic. Their outstanding live performance at Hebden last year immediately ensured their return for 2013. The new album ‘Combustion’ is scheduled for release May 6th.

MAGNIFICATION

Band:YES
Album:MAGNIFICATION
Label:SIREENA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Prog Rock

Already last year we released with “Open Your Eyes” (SIR 4018) an album by prog legend YES on vinyl for the first time. Finally here comes the next strike: Magnification!

"Magnification", the 19th studio album of YES from 2001 was different from the 18 albums that had preceded it. Gone were guitarist Billy Sherwood and keyboardist Igor Khoroshev. Remaining members Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Alan White, and Steve Howe decided not to officially replace them, so YES reverted to a four-person band for the first time in its existence. Conductor Larry Groupe was invited to lead an orchestra, which substituted for the keyboards. It proved to be an inspired idea and it made the album unique in relation to its other releases and was a welcomed change of pace for a band approaching the 40-year mark. The result moves the group into new fields of traditional progressive rock style. We release this masterpiece on 3 LP sides to guarantee the best possible sound. The vinyl is 180 gram heavy-weight and the album comes in gatefold sleeve. Attention limited edition: The first 1000 edits will be released on coloured vinyl!

 

 

LIVE KRAUT

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:LIVE KRAUT
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

Sireena Records consciously did not chose the best known bands of the era but on first hand chosed the different styles of Krautrock live on stage. What you clearly can hear is the fun and improvisation during all recordings - that was the most important criterion for this compilation. This album offers (nearly) it all: Wonderful symphonic music (Grobschnitt, Jane, Anyone’s Daughter), bands with long extended jam-sessions (Mythos, Gila, Virus, Out Of Focus), jazzrock (Guru Guru, Embryo), folkrock (Ougenweide), political correctness (Eulenspygel) and crispy Rock’n‘Roll (Karthago, Nine Days Wonder). Yes, those were the days and that’s how it sounds today. When endmastering the cd the titles were added in such a way that you have the feeling to listen to only one concert. It is hoped that you like the result as much as the producers fun arranging this Krautrock compilation.

 

 

VIDUNDER

Band:VIDUNDER
Album:VIDUNDER
Label:Crusher
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Vidunder is bluesy 70’s rock with a touch of garage. The trio now joins Spiders, Horisont and Dean Allen Foyd, by releasing their debut album on Crusher Records.

Vidunder from Malmö, a city in the south part of Sweden, features Martin Prim (vocals and guitar), Linus Larsson (bass) and Jens Rasmussen (drums). The band was formed in mid-2011 and it didn’t take long before they released their debut single Asmodeus on Crusher Records (the very same year). The release was followed by gigs around Sweden.

In late 2012, it was once again time to step into the studio, this time to begin the recording of the Vidunder debut album. The result was a ten tracks album. On the album can be found, for instance, Summoning The Not Living, reminding of a young Roky Erickson and his 13th Floor Elevators; the bluesy ballad Threefold giving the album a balance to the more heavier and up-tempo songs; Threat From The Underground which is one of the three tracks on this album with guest appearance by guitarist John Hoyles (guitarist of Spiders, ex-member of Witchcraft and Troubled Horse). The music can just as easily bring to mind the past days of Captain Beyond or Blue Cheer, as for today’s always topical and compatriots in Graveyard.

THIS MOUNTAIN WAITS

Band:PEARL HANDLED REVOLVER
Album:THIS MOUNTAIN WAITS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

One year on from the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Colossus, Pearl Handled Revolver retour with the eagerly awaited follow-up entitled This Mountain Waits. Starting life as a hard hitting blues rock band, the Bedfordshire based fivepiece have evolved and broadened their palette to produce a second album that is wilder, more exploratory and captures the essence of their exhilarating, psychedelic live performances. “There is something satisfyingly British about Colossus, the debut album from Pearl Handed Revolver. It’s an album that basks in the glory of the late 60’s and early 70’s when British bands like The Animals, Cream, Free, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple ruled the world and I can hear elements of these artists woven into the relaxed but hard hitting, psychedelic blues of Pearl Handed Revolver. There’s no studio trickery, no bull, just five supremely talented guys in a room creating music from the heart.

 

 

THIS FOREST AND THE SEA

Band:SCOTT KEY
Album:THIS FOREST AND THE SEA
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Excellent 1976 private press acoustic album, self-recorded at various places in Colorado, and filled with beautiful fingerstyle acoustic guitar, plus some atonal bottleneck slide, string scrapes and drones (at times, very Ry Cooder/“Paris, Texas” about six years before that soundtrack existed). Although almost completely instrumental, what lyrics there are tend towards the dark and the satiric. The obvious points of comparison are John Fahey and Leo Kottke, although Scott Key certainly has his own presence and style, differences in tone and color and attack, which he attributes to his background in rock bands. Overall, there is a brooding, loner folk/psych feel, most evident on the phenomenal, effects-heavy, almost 11-minute long title track, ‘This Forest and the Sea.’ "I was coming to terms with what it mean to exist… and saw the world in pure black and white—there was no room for grey,” Key said. “I saw an American Culture devoid of any understanding of its place in the universe, how we learn nothing save what we see on television, how our existence is tainted by intellectual laziness, and how our gift of life is defiled by the taking of it." This deluxe tip-on mini-LP jacket edition of “This Forest and the Sea” includes five bonus tracks from Key’s second private press album (“Unlock Your Feelin’s); the twenty-page booklet sports engaging, funny, and insightful notes by Key, photos, plus the text to poem that inspired the title track; as a nod to the forest, the booklet is printed on FSC recycled, chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer fiber paper manufactured using biogas energy. A very rare album that seems to have flown under almost everyone’s radar—although thankfully not Doug McGowan’s (Yoga Records), who sent this our way.

SIDEWALKS TALKING - LP

Band:HOLLINS AND STAR
Album:SIDEWALKS TALKING - LP
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

I love this record. For me, it has a trace or two of Arthur Lee and Love at their best (‘Krishna Dov’ would not sound out of place on “Forever Changes,” for example), with dashes of maybe Terry Callier in some of the jazzier tunes. I also like that Hollins & Starr wrote a gentle tribute to one of my favorite old-time bluesmen, Mississippi John Hurt. At times this album is a gorgeous, ethereal blend of psychedelic folk and offbeat pop; but there are some funk and avant-garde moves too (where did those crazy orchestrations, wild guitar, and breakbeats on the fierce anti-war rave-up ‘Hard Headed Woman’ come from?), all supported by an odd assortment of instruments, including flute, bells and a generous helping of fuzz guitar. Chicago-based duo Chuck Hollins and David Starr only made this one album, which originally appeared in 1970 on the Ovation label.

Ovation said at the time of its release, “Classical artistry rock and sidewalk poetry.” All true. Very cool. Hip, mellow, and stoned.

Limited edition of 750 copies, packaged in a deluxe 1960’s style tip-on jacket, with an insert. •Positive reviews in Uncut and Shindig! for the CD edition •180 gram 24-bit direct-from analogue vinyl edition

RUIN - LP

Album:RUIN - LP

Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Death Metal

'Ruin' may sometimes dwell in surprising yet suffocating doom-as-fuck territories that will have old-school death-metal freaks in its dirtiest form possible shit their pants ("Tanatorio" or the eight-minutes plus drone and tortured pulse of "Ruinas") but at the end of the day, this is, guess what, another pure fucking old-school grindcore masterpiece. No need to remind you the band's influences, you know them and they proudly wear them on their sleeves anyway. No, all you need to know that in a world where even extreme music is being sterilized, their fifth full-length doesn't show any sign of them slowing down. As a matter of fact, co-released on LP by DOOMENTIA and PARASITIC and on CD (and limited digipack) by DOOMENTIA this April, perfectly illustrated by Timo Ketola stark black and white artwork, one could simply say that 'Ruin' is the real fucking deal. And so are MACHETAZO. Always been, always will be.

DOOMINICANES - LP

Band:EVANGELIST
Album:DOOMINICANES - LP
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Of course to some remaining anonymous is a publicity stunt. Just a perverted way to tease people’s attention and let them rambling on if, yes or no, there’s a so-called ‘famous’ guy hidden behind the mask… But to others, it is truly an act of faith. A way of underlining on the most plain and honest way that at the end of the day, only music matters and that as such, true artists that truly believe in its sheer power just have this urge to give up their individuality and step aside to let it shine unconditionally. And EVANGELIST is a prime example of such mentality… All you need to know about those mysterious lads is that they’re a bunch of experienced musicians coming from Cracow, Poland and the first of their kind in this country. End of story. The rest is up to the music and boy, oh boy, if you hadn’t been exposed just to it yet thanks to their debut album ‘In Partibus Infidelium’, get ready to sweep off your feet. Yes, EVANGELIST doesn’t even pretend hiding where they are coming from. Classic and epic doom with a heavy-metal background à la CANDLEMASS and strong religious themes is the name of the game and right from opening track “Blood Curse”, you know you’re dealing with pros here and not simple imitators. Not only is ‘Doominicanes’ an extremely well-produced and not only has it more than a hint of the kind of vibe DOOMSWORD and other Italian power metallers have learnt to master on the battlefield and with all its epic buttons pushed to the max

AFFAIR OF THE HEART

Band:NOBLESSE OBLIGE
Album:AFFAIR OF THE HEART
Label:Repo
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Pulsating with raw passion and a desire for anthemic melodies, Berlin based Noblesse Oblige have crafted their most polished and unapologetic work to date. New album release 'Affair of the Heart' presents a sophisticated pop opus, destined to unite the ears of dance floor dreamers and bedroom escapists alike. Powerful male & female harmonies melt over an ocean of warm electronics, voluptuous dance floor beats and euphoric disco arpeggios, as you’re welcomed into a rich fantasy world of exotic spies, demonic preachers and lonely souls lost at sea… “Affair Of The Heart is a romantic journey in the classic sense of the term. Our study of human passion from its most uplifting to its gloomiest...” Formed after a chance meeting at a masked ball in London, French performer Valerie Renay and German producer Sebastian Lee Philipp have spent the last few years touring the European club circuit, picking up a Russian Music Prize for their chanson pop album ‘In Exile’ along the way… However, when it came to working on their latest release, the duo locked themselves away in a live-in factory on the outskirts of Berlin (at studio haven ‘Turmwerk’, founded by Chris Corner of Sneaker Pimps/IAMX.) Undisturbed by the rest of the world, they collaborated for the first time with mixing engineers David Wrench (Caribou, Bat For Lashes) and Harald Blüchel (Cosmic Baby, Energy 52) in order to bring a fresh dimension to their sound. The result is an album that defies the isolation it sprung from and instead, shoots straight for the dance flloor and into the soul. Harnessing pop sensibilites and a slick electronic production, ‘Affair of the Heart’ recalls the emotional energy of iconic 80s bands like Eurythmics, Tears for Fears and Depeche Mode, whilst also reaching out to fans of more contemporary favourites like Hurts, The Knife, Austra and Trust. It’s a far cry from their arty beginnings in London's electro-punk scene, but if the album’s chilling and hypnotic cover of an Eagles’ classic demonstrates anything, it’s that not only are Valerie and Sebastian braving new territories; they’re creating their own as well…

 

 

NATTENS LOVSANG

Band:ENSAMBLE LAKONIA
Album:NATTENS LOVSANG
Label:COMPUNCTIO
Format:CD
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

Nattens lovsång is Andreas Runeson’s debut album as a composer. Runeson is mainly known for being the producer and founder of the label Compunctio. The last ten years he has produced albums for artists including Nicolai Dunger, David Åhlén, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, Håkon Kornstad and Jon Christensen.

The idea behind Ensemble Lakonia and Nattens Lovsång (“midnight praise”) was formed in 2005 when Andreas Runeson took a sabbatical to live in a Swedish monastic community called Bjärka-Säby. Upon returning to ordinary life in Uppsala, Sweden, he contacted a few musicians who had been on his mind. After several years – in strange ways – Ensemble Lakonia had taken form. The music was recorded in a concert hall during three days in the summer of 2010. The big challenge was to keep the raw simplicity of the tunes and at the same time transform it into chamber music. If you listen to the music it seems logical that it took long time to find the right musicians, to find a form for the music and to make this album. The result is a wayward navigation between blues, chamber music, jazz, Swedish folk music and Gregorian chants.

The music on the album is an exploration into the rich sound spectrum of the clavichord.

Andreas Eklöf is a composer and a musician. He has composed for the Gothenburg Combo (David Hansson and Thomas Hansy), Maria Ingemarsson, Trio Gohtia (Kristina Halvordsson, My Hellgren, Louise Jansson) and Mats Persson, amongst others. Mats Persson has played a great number of concerts since 1972. Music by Erik Satie, the early 20th century avant-garde from Russia, John Cage, Morton Feldman and Christian Wolff was from the beginning the main part of his repertoire – music that he performed a long time before it had gain status in the official music life.

 

 

INTO THE MISSIONFIELD

Band:DRUNKEN PRAYER
Album:INTO THE MISSIONFIELD
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

“Morgan Christopher Geer, the man behind Drunken Prayer's moody blend of Americana and altfolk, has the sort of gravelly, lived-in voice that evokes memories of The Band and Tom Waits. On Drunken Prayer's second album, Into The Mission Field, Geer barks and croons his way through a song cycle inspired by garage rock, soul, psychedelia, and the band's folksy roots. It's an eclectic mix, but everything comes together on the title track, which even flirts with a bit of gospel music.” - American Songwriter,

“Every artist should sound so coherent when in the midst of such intoxicating revelry.” - No Depression

YAJNA

Band:HAVAN
Album:YAJNA
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

New project from Frederic Arbour (VISIONS). Havan (Fire Sacrifice) aims to explore spontaneous forms of aural explorations through instinctive sound manipulations, balancing improvisation with the channeling of sonic energies. Havan is also meant as a mainly collaborative endeavor and so for this first recording Frederic was joined by Harlow MacFarlane (FUNERARY CALL) and Sarah Rosalina Brady (AMBER ASYLUM). The album was recorded during a live ritual in November 2012 using Analog Synths, Guitar, Gongs, Bells, Voice and Electric Violin and the result is a stirring elemental foray into the transforming powers of sound and ritual.

PROCESSION.

Band:DESIDERII MARGINIS
Album:PROCESSION.
Label:cyclic law
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Drone/Ambient

"Procession" heralds the reawakening of the acclaimed swedish dark ambient project Desiderii Marginis, an album that sounds at the same time warmingly familiar and inspiringly new. While Desiderii Marginis is perhaps not as prolific as some other acts, it's "quality over quantity" motto always makes it well worth the wait and this is certainly no exception. The eight pieces that make up this new album stand firmly on their own, and yet form an even more remarkable whole. Johan Levin envokes a grand soundscape, beneath the faded remnants of the celestial spheres where timbres have space to grow, evolve and reflect off each other, a sombre, melancholic thoughtfullness, a calm to dwell in, and long back to. The atmosphere of the album is not that of solid darkness, or an abyss opening beneath you, but rather a wintery pale, grey dusk casting long, sweeping shadows. A haze that makes you uncertain if it’s really getting lighter or darker. We're honored to welcome Johan Levin's long standing project to the ever expanding Cyclic Law family. Normal Edition of 400 copies in Gatefold Sleeve + A2 Poster.

After many EP’s and more than 40 gigs everywhere in France, Switzerland and Scandinavia, Ni wants to explode again throughout other musical and geographic fields . Ni is showing a real performance.

Genre:Industrial/EBM

December 21, 2012. The Earth faced the greatest catastrophe the world has ever seen – total extinction. While most withdraw into huddled masses, many flock to Chichen Itza near Valladolid in Mexico for what would be the last über death fest, Oktotenfest 2012. The ballistic skull splitting industrial-metal performance of Hanzel Und Gretyl was accompanied by gallons of blood beer and shot after shot of deathschlager. Über chaos – Über celebration! During their performance, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl unearthed itself to reveal its true identity – a spaceship built for HuG to tour the solar system. The band and hoards of fans boarded the ship and began a tour of all the planets, finally ending on the sun. All but HuG were burnt up, for they are time traveling space gods bent on total cerebral domination. Many perished with the Earth because without the purchase of 2012: Zwanzig Zwölf, they were unable to attend the exodus and enter the 9th dimension to transcend the human form with steins und skulls forever

''Über Alles'' is served up in the style of a misplaced Wagnerian space-metal opera lost in time, chewed up by distorted synth filters and pummeled by a million homicidal robot drum machines manipulated by the reclusive scatterbrain mastermind known as Loopy, and the much feared Vas Kallas. HUG has once again created the epic of all possibilities. No longer innocent on the deep black forest but powerful and sturdy in sound and message -- HUG survives and continues to bring pleasure and pain amongst the world!

The project came to life from The Slaiver's ashes in 2009 as a three piece with a stronger identity After a few months of activity, and after an European tour, the band released their first EP "Rose Lane was Tucker's Girlfriend" on Subsound Records, produced by Giulio "Ragno" Favero (Zu, Il Teatro Degli Orrori, One Dimensional Man) and with the special participation of Luca Mai from ZU and MOMBU.

The band has grown, the sound is changed. Almost fifty minutes of intensity, rough sound and moments of distressing and annihilating darkness.

KOOL THING

Band:KOOL THING
Album:KOOL THING
Label:PALE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

The debut full-length album from Berliner act kool thing is united by a feel of escapism, the need to ditch our urban addictions and regain a lost sense of wonderment, even if just for a few hours. With fourteen songs, including two instrumental interludes, kool thing sounds like youth remembered through a kaleidoscopic lens in which each mirrored fact points to limitless futures. Just like the Hipgnosis-echoing cover artwork (courtesy of photographer John Duncan), this record is full of beautiful juxtapositions, artifice and nature yinning and yanging their way through a dramatic love affair. Rusty guitar licks are found curling up against fractilling synth arpeggiations,with Julie Chance and Jon Dark’s vocal harmonies dancing on the horizon above the thunderous drumming by Valentin Plessy.

Danish musician Bjørn Jeppesen is releasing his solo music under the name Nattefrost. It all started in 1995 with a cassette tape including some dark ambient tracks. But Bjørn developed his music and made it more melodic and rhythmic over the years. So far Nattefrost has released 9 albums, 2 EPs and is included on over 15 compilation CDs worldwide. The new Nattefrost album entitled “Futurized”” includes 10 electronic tracks. Some of the uptempo elements from the 2010 album “Dying sun / Scarlet moon” have been continued. There are also still a lot of vintage elements. The title track is almost 10 minutes long and might be the most vintage sounding track with lots of arpeggio sequences and vocoder voices. On the album a few artists are guesting. The danish electro act “Remember Green” is helping on “Electro Shock”. “Dorvo” does some great backing vocals on “Ghost Mind”” and “Michel Moers”, the vocalist from the legendary Belgian band Telex” works with Nattefrost on 3 tracks. ”Futurized”” should appeal to the fan that likes lots of the old school spacey electronic synth stuff but also for the Nattefrost fans that like a mixture of vintage and modern electronica.

UNMAKE

Band:MORDBRAND
Album:UNMAKE
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Death Metal

You can take the man out of the death metal but you can’t take the death metal out of the man, it seems. Following the example of his former MACABRE END/GOD MACABRE comrade Jonas Ståhlhammar - who after a ten year break from the extreme metal scene has been churning out records like crazy since forming BOMBS OF HADES – Per Boder is back in full swing and doing what he knows best: growling his way through furious slabs of old-school Swedish death fuckin’ metal!

If MORBRAND was initiated as a studio project by Johan Rudberg and Björn Larsson, from thrash metal warriors THE LAW, in 2006, it’s really when Boder was pulled out of his retirement in 2010 that the band finally started to fire all cylinders. And since the release of their first MCD ‘Necropsychotic’ in 2011, they’ve been on a roll. The following year saw them offering a split with, you’ve guessed it, BOMBS OF HADES and a 7 inch EP (entitled‘Kolumbarium’). Guess that ‘Unmake’ just proves that they’re not planning to slow down anytime soon…

Album:MAKE A CHANGE..
Label:Black Hate
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

It's very rare that a band name cuts so succinctly to the heart of what a band is all about. So perfectly encapsulating the hate and misery and blackness of the music. Nothing here is supposed to be easy, or happy or joyful. It's meant to be hard, brutal, sad, dismal, hopeless, miserable. And it is, but on such a massively grand and epic scale it's sort of breathtaking. Huge mournful minor key swirls of buzzing guitars, ultra depressive and strangely melancholy. This album will take your very last breath. There is no way to pass this release for worshippers of atmospheric music like BURZUM, LEVIATHAN, SHINING etc pp.

Album:TIDES OF WAR
Label:METAL ON METAL
Format:CD

Germany-based SACRED GATE release a new album, only a year after their debut came out. Stronger and more confident than before, they forge traditional heavy metal with US power metal elements. Outstanding guitar work, strong, melodic but rough vocals and a tight rhythm section are highlighted by clear but not too modern production. While IRON MAIDEN can be still quoted as their biggest influence, they have moved away from it a few steps, crystallizing their personal recognizable style. "Tides of War" is a concept album about the Spartans' and other Greek soldiers' heroic fight for freedom against Persians at the pass of Thermopylae. A tale told in such a convincing way, not only through words, but also through music, that it should awaken the warrior spirit in every true metalhead, regardless the nationality. An epic work in every respect. Fans of ICED EARTH, ASKA, BLAZE, BLITZKRIEG, SAXON, DESTILLERY, THUNDERBOLT and METAL LAW - check it out!

Yeesss, Goratory - Sexual Intercorpse is finally reissued adding 3 live tracks (Live at Ikebukuro Chop Tokyo Japan Aug 8, 2004) and 3 live videos (Live at Bomb Shelter 2004 Line-up) as a bonus.

TABULA RASA

Band:EXENCE
Album:TABULA RASA
Label:PUNISHMENT 18
Format:CD

Features a new line up and made the band evolve from a “Progressive Death Metal” band to a more “Thrash Metal” like sound. After months of hard work and after the addition of Richie Bleed (vocals), Riccardo Tortoli (guitar), Dario Lastrucci (bass) & Francesco ‘Breeze’ Brizzi (drums) the band had finally found its own identity. This also enabled Exence to break the silence and to record a new album in Rome in 2011. The high quality result for which the band would also like to thank Stefano Morabito (16th Cellar Studios) only increased the band’s enthusiasm and fueled the wish to bring the band’s anger up on stage and to bring out another album! And that is how the Florentine Thrash/Death Metal band Excence made its comeback!
