MULTICOLOURED SHADOWS

Band:PHILIPPE PETIT
Album:MULTICOLOURED SHADOWS
Label:AAGOO RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Avantgarde/Electronic

Since he started making his own music Philippe Petit has constantly tried to expand his art, and avoid categorization. From his early days manipulating vinyls and foundsounds or field-recordings, he moved on to using piano, organs, vibes, synths, then cymbalum, electric psalterion, guitar, caterpillar drum-guitars built by Yuri Landman, and various other percussive devices… He released dozens of collaborations and some solo works, none of which resembled the previous one, though forming a sonic choreography using space/time, in a multi-dimensional way, spatializing genres with an electro-acoustic approach while preserving a human touch, mostly due to the use of real « classical » instruments, kazooed voices, and percussions.

Composed in 2014, celebrating 30 years of activism in music, Philippe came with another new approach, twisting into unexpected turns while developing some melodies… Building up a tension in his narratives where “Multicoloured Shadows” of Shoegaze dance with electro-acoustically-psyched-out atmospheres… Mouth-noises going thru Kazoos being treated thru amps and reverbs bringing a melodic human touch that is unique and guarantees that once heard Petit cannot be mistaken with any other. “Multicoloured Shadows” is powerful and unpredictable while managing to stay oneiric.

WALKING OUT

Band:THE BARON FOUR
Album:WALKING OUT
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:VINYL 7"
Genre:Psych/Garage

With their debut LP still making waves and sales around the globe, The Baron Four unleash their 3rd single, and 2nd for State Records. Recorded in February at The Ponswood Hit Factory, the almighty outpouring of energy on these 2 cuts is astounding. Top side “Walking Out” pitches elements of ‘Psychotic Reaction’ and ‘You Don’t Love Me’ against an all too familiar tale of woe at the hands of a demon temptress! Mike Whittaker’s impassioned vocal is matched by a brutal instrumental track, resolutely recorded ‘in the red’ for maximum impact. Jagged guitars, pounding bass and clattering drums combine to make the biggest and best racket you’re likely to hear this year!

Over on the flip, things calm down a little (but not too much!) with the moody minor key vibe of “Can’t Find My Way”. Some ace tremelo guitar and sweet backing vocals are on display here, showing a more controlled side to the group, in stark contrast to the full-on cacophony on the A-side!!

 

 

WHERE THE WATER RUNS DEEP

Band:THE BEATPACK
Album:WHERE THE WATER RUNS DEEP
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:VINYL 7"
Genre:Psych/Garage

The Beatpack initially peddled their primal wares from 1987 to 1991, terrorising audiences with their distinctive brand of violent Rhythm & Blues, their intense hessian-sack-clad live shows and their acres of hair. Recording an EP, a 45 and an LP for Screaming Apple Records, the group burned out in a blaze of glory and its members scattered to the four winds.

Fast-forward twenty years and the 'Pack are back. Reunited in order to complete their mission to bring hip-shakin', feedbackscreeching, blues-wailing garage punk R&B to the masses, and featuring original members Simon Harvey (lead guitar), William Bourton Esq. (bass guitar) and Hugh Dellar (vocals and harmonica) alongside new boy Adrian Smith on rhythm and the inimitable Ian O'Sullivan on drums, the band have already played a pre-Purple Weekend night in Leon, Spain, the Berlin Beat Explosion and Le Beat Bespoke in London.

These 2 new sides are primitive, high-energy, kick-ass R & B at their finest. Pulling out all the stops at The Ponswood Hit Factory, these guys could show ANY new young group how it should be done, with all the necessary elements in place—crackling guitars, pounding drums, throbbing bass and hysterical vocals. Any fan of The Pretty Things, Downliners Sect and Clapton-era Yardbirds should cock an ear in this direction IMMEDIATELY!

 

 

MONTEVIDEO BLUES

Band:MONTEVIDEO BLUES
Album:MONTEVIDEO BLUES
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP VINYL
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

First time vinyl reissue of 1972 South American Holy Grail •Grooving and edgy rock with native Uruguayan rhythms •Insert packed with photos, detailed history, and bi-lingual lyrics for this important Uruguayan band •Limited to 500 copies !

The one and only album by Montevideo Blues (1972) is a serious contender as one of the most important, and as it happens, most grooving records released in Uruguay. It's also incredibly rare, fetching big prices when it appears, which is almost never. But there is another reason that the album has attained exalted status: Montevideo Blues was founded by Uruguayan song-writing legend Gastón “Dino” Ciarlo as a way to fuse the rawness of rock music with obscure native Uruguayan rhythms like malambo, milonga and chamarrita. “At the time, we were revolutionary and looking for change,” said Dino. Montevideo Blues demonstrated an unyielding and combative attitude. During live shows in 1971, Dino criticized the government—a dangerous level of political commitment, reflected in the lyrics of the songs, some of the most radical ever set to music. Eduardo Mateo, the sacred monster of modern Uruguayan music, was succinct: “You have decided to prune the tree,” he said to Dino. The album opens with one of Dino’s most famous songs ‘Milonga de Pelo Largo’ (‘Milonga of the Long Hair’), a sinuous groove transformed by the arrival of the dictatorship into a hymn of Uruguayan popular resistance. The rest of the album tracks—the fantastic 'Para Hacer Mùsica, Para Hacer' and 'Un Color' are standouts—have an edgy quality, with terrific unconventional angular guitar and a kind of ragged glory, driven along by insistent grooving rhythms. Insert is packed with photos, detailed band history, and bi-lingual lyrics for this important Uruguayan band.

 

 

MR OIL MAN

Band:JARVIS STREET REVUE
Album:MR OIL MAN
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP VINYL
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

From the original master tapes •Limited to 500 copies • Heavy tip-on gatefold jacket + insert with band history, photos, images of sheet music for several songs, and lyrics for the band's greatest statement, 'Mr. Oil Man.'

“I could go on and on about how great the record is..." —Helios Creed / Chrome

Poised between Toronto and Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Ontario became the refuge for every touring band in Canada; a mandatory break while crossing the perilously vast Canadian Shield. No doubt, Canada’s vastness can be heard in much of the Northernly musical output. There is perhaps no better example of this than Thunder Bay’s Jarvis Street Revue. Their lone LP, leased to Columbia for release in 1971, leaves no one untouched by the band’s sheer avalanche of psychedelic heaviness, wasted acid leads and harrowing vocals. Every song is laced with a conviction born from the physical landscape they called home. Jarvis Street Revue spent (literally) a month of Sundays recording the album and bouncing tracks to create effects. “Chuck Williams was so freaked out, he used to leave the room,” Jarvis leader and Neil Young running mate Tom Horricks said. “It was so anti-establishment.” Creative and far-seeing... and not without some chemical support. The albums's (and band's) concern with the environmental—including bold statements on the use and abuse of the oil reserves, rapacious business men, and the depletion of Earth’s natural resources—were truly visionary.

 

 

EMPIRE SOLDIERS LIVE

Band:BRAIN DAMAGE MEETS VIBRONICS
Album:EMPIRE SOLDIERS LIVE
Label:JARRING EFFECTS
Format:CD
Genre:Reggae/Dub/Ska

This is the Live version of Empire Soldiers : Brain Damage & Vibronics unleash a fiery dubwise journey into the lesser known volumes of history. When two of Europe’s most notorious dub producers and an international cast of singers meet up to discuss the start of the Great War 100 years ago, you know the results are going to be big. « Empire Soldiers » is the often overlooked story of the colonial troops in World War One, a heavyweight musical collaboration with an emotive set of lyrical tales from Africa, Asia and The Caribbean told by Madu Messenger, Parvez, Sir Jean and Mohammed El Amraoui. Vibronics & Brain Damage teamed up and decided to come together around a concept, a narrative inspiration that will undoubtedly surprise: Anglo-Caribbean and Franco-African soldiers’ experience during the first world war. The academic historian, poet & songwriter, Madu Messenger, uses the product of years of study and research, to develop, within that very framework, a series of texts on some key topics such as travel, friendship, war and death.

This project thus aims at offering a learning experience about this often little-known period of our history. It will draw troubling parallels with some more contemporary considerations on culture shocks, immigration, imperial powers and horrors of war that still affects all of us today. Following their reflection on this sensitive issue, the musicians of the project’s – all of many other origins, Anglo-French, Jamaican or Asian – move towards a cultural alignment, opposite to certain enslaving and communitarian models. Brain Damage and Vibronics’ digital reggae-dub comes in different colors throughout many influences, completing the best of their know-how, with the spontaneousness of the collaboration & human experience.

Antikatastaseis

Band:ABYSSAL
Album:Antikatastaseis
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

ABYSSAL have always been a really low-profile entity within the death metal scene for the most part. Even though their new album “Antikatastaseis” is their third album, the band have recorded their previous two releases mainly for self-release digitally (where they would make their albums available mainly for free) and via CDR for anyone who requested a physical copy of their work. The band never had partaken in any live activities, interviews or any kind of promotion likewise for their work either. When the band made their last album “Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius” available digitally and would burn CDRs for any listener who requested, Profound Lore just happen to come across this mesmerizing death metal release by chance and decided to release it officially in a limited run (now pretty much sold out). It was then that ABYSSAL’s awareness was being made as a band who created some of the most intriguing death metal coming out today combining vicious brutality, technicality, and a very dark foreboding atmosphere which would compare them to the likes of such bands as PORTAL, IMPETUOUS RITUAL, ULCERATE, and MITOCHONDRION.

With their new album “Antikatastaseis”, ABYSSAL are primed to release what will be considered one of the most intriguing and most brutal and darkest death metal releases of the year, one that will realize them as one of the best death metal bands coming out of the UK today alongside GRAVE MIASMA and CRUCIAMENTUM. By taking their musical fortitude to heights much darker, more brutal, and even more melodic and technical, ABYSSAL have raised a bar in the genre of death metal with their new album....For fans of PORTAL, MITOCHONDRION, IMPETUOUS RITUAL, ULCERATE, WORMED, ARTIFICIAL BRAIN, and GRAVE MIASMA

With VANUM, this marks the first time both musicians have actually collaborated musically together. With the goal of creating a certain expression of dark atmospheric music with each album, the debut VANUM album treads the ground for those familiar with Morgan and Rekevics’ respective repertoires; that of creating some of the most stirring and mesmerizing black metal coming out today. The VANUM debut album features some of the strongest material each musician has ever created and will be recognized as one of the most respected black metal releases of the year.

I.

Band:THE EXPLODING EYES ORCHESTRA
Album:I.
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

What started as a pastime for Jess and the Ancient Ones guitarist and songwriter Thomas Corpse has morphed into an actual band: The Exploding Eyes Orchestra. With a lineup consisting of five out of seven Jess and the Ancient Ones members, the band's debut album, simply titled I, will hit the streets on June 12th. According to Thomas Corpse, the idea behind the new combo was to find an outlet for material which the prolific songwriter found incompatible with the Jess and the Ancient Ones concept. The album is culled from lengthy recording sessions held in Kuopio, Finland in the winter of 2013 and 2014, and these sessions also produced another album's worth of excellent material, which will see the light of day on the next release, II, in the spring of 2016. Despite the relaxed nature of the sessions, these are not jam-based improvisational tracks but strong, carefully planned compositions. The music is laid back and soulful, influenced by classic rock, with powerful female vocals. What else the future might bring to The Exploding Eyes Orchestra is difficult to foretell, and Corpse likes to consider the band as a loose collective unit which doesn't necessarily follow the traditional route of rock bands (even though they do play live and release albums) but is not a therapy session either.

Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

Scandinavian action rock is back with a bang !

The Finnish 4-piece rock n’ roll band Hard Action will be releasing their first full length album ’Sinister Vibes’ on Svart Records in June 2015. Started in March 2014 by guitarist Ville Valavuo (Speedtrap, Death Toll 80K), drummer Markus Hietamies (Speedtrap, Forced Kill) and lead singer/guitarist Günter Kivioja (Chestburster) the lineup was finally completed in late 2014 with bass player A-P Heinola (First Times), and the band are already working hard on new material. Even though Hard Action have only played a handful of shows so far they’ve already gained attention and radio play in Spain, Germany, Canada, Australia and the US. Following the debut single ’Dead Dogs’ the band takes up where they left off with the first release only to take it up a notch with this 10-track LP. The music is deeply rooted in 1970’s rock and late-70’s punk rock, and the simple-yetcatchy songs are topped with burning hot lead guitar parts, so expect nothing less than an album filled with electric guitar worshipping rock music. This album will definitely be one of the highlights of Finnish rock music in 2015.

IN CHARNEL LIGHTS

Band:CULT OF ENDTIME
Album:IN CHARNEL LIGHTS
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Unsettlingly brilliant Death Metal of the vintage persuasion

Cult of Endtime is a five-headed cadaver from Finland, reanimated with the blackest of magick and possessed to play vintage death metal. The beast has roamed the barren wastelands of eastern Finland since 2010 and has now been successfully captured on tape. The resulting album has been christened In Charnel Lights, and Finnish label Svart Records has been given the daunting task to unleash the work to the world on May 29th. In Charnel Lights sounds like something one would see circulating in the tape trading circles of the early 90s, played back by long haired teenagers at high volumes on beaten ghettoblasters. The same black blood that gave birth to the best of early Scandinavian death metal flows in Cult of Endtime's ruptured veins. Recorded and mixed by the band's guitarist and mastered at Orgone Studios, London, the album takes what was an exceptionally promising demo band to wholly new levels. Ranging from more melodic doomy parts to breakneck riffery, from the muddy, fuzzy walls of guitars to demonic growls also known as vocals, Cult of Endtime are here not to reinvent things but to reinforce and refine them. CD.

Genre:Avant-Garde

The publishing wing of Svart Records, which kicked off with the legendary Isten Fanzine compilation, continues in April with Magic As A Golden Mean, which is a selection of mixed-media artworks by Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu. The hardcover book will be launched at Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland in April 2015. Costin has been creating album artwork for over a decade. He started out illustrating his band’s demos, but would soon be influenced by circumstances in post-Communist Romania, too. In the mid-1990s, metal fans in Bucharest were lucky to find bootleg cassettes with badly photocopied covers. Undeterred, Costin simply made his own using Heavy Metal Magazine, the country’s sole heavy music publication, as a reference. Today, he has emerged as one of the most talented artists in the realm of avant-metal and dark psychedelica, producing work for the likes of Darkthrone, Ulver, At The Gates, Triptykon, and Opeth. Whether the images he conjures are disturbing, provocative, or enchanting, they consistently show great finesse, sensitivity and depth. Comments the artist himself, “This is my first book, and it contains a fine selection of mixed media arts I made in the last years. After 12 years of working with bands, booking agencies, festivals, record labels, promoters, and studios, I realized the common denominator of the events in my creative life is indicating actually the golden mean. Working with same passion and dedication for dark and light entities made me realize that I am always the one in the middle, and I will always need both sides in order to evolve to a higher state of understanding of the world around me. So, the artwork selection was divided in three big chapters – one is related to darkness, one is related to light, while the closing one is related to magic and the middle path. So, in my case, the ‘golden mean’ represents the magic of manifestation, the desirable middle between two extremes, marked by darkness...

Band:ZONE SIX
Album:LOVE MONSTER
Label:SULATRON RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

After 11 years without a proper studioalbum, german spacerockers Zone Six are back with a new album! Founded 18 years ago, Zone Six is one of the oldest active spacerock / acidrock / neo-krautrock bands in Europe, even if they are lazy as hell. The band now consists of founder member Dave Schmidt (aka Sula Bassana) on drums (formerly bass), Martin Schorn (aka Modulfix) on synthesizer, Komet Lulu on bass and Rainer Reeff on guitar. All four members also are in Krautzone, Lulu and Sula are the founders of Electric Moon and Rainer plays in The Pancakes. They met some days to freak out together and produced 4 tracks to blow your mind away into deep space! This whole thing is very groovy and psychedelic – kaleidoscopic flights are stopping the time from existing and mix it up with the space which is endless... And full of acid!

 

 

BURN THE PLAN

Band:GOOD LOVELIES
Album:BURN THE PLAN
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

With Burn The Plan, a long‐awaited new album, Good Lovelies are both fulfilling and defying their so‐called musical destiny as a “folk trio.”

This time around, the trio has spent time developing, expanding and honing their sound as individual musicians first, and as Good Lovelies second. These new songs were crafted not to ‘fit’ their catalogue per se, but as expressions of individual voices within a tightknit group dynamic. What keeps the three Lovelies making music together is not just their uncanny musical compatibility; it’s their unshakeable friendships, which supports each member contributing to the songwriting in distinct ways. 2011’s Juno‐nominated Let The Rain Fall was the last time the Good Lovelies released a full‐length studio album. It may not feel so long ago, since the band’s profile has continued to grow with awards, steady and sold‐out touring, and a live album in between, but you can do a whole lotta living, loving and letting go in four years. For Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, four years has been the exact number of hours, moments and experiences needed to take the next step, to burn the plan. UK tour this June.

 

 

 

SELF-TITLED.

Band:CATHERINE FEENY AND CHRIS JOHNEDIS
Album:SELF-TITLED.
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

Acclaimed songwriter Catherine Feeny met jazz drummer Chris Johnedis after recording her rebellious fourth solo album, "America." She had just come back from the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York, and he was returning from 2 years of working and studying in Thailand. Johnedis helped translate the varied rhythms of "America" ‐‐ which ran the gamut between vintage drum machine sounds and captured 􀀀􀀀eld recordings ‐‐ into a live show setting. Two years later, working with producers Sebastian Rogers (Floetry), Sheldon Gomberg (Ben Harper, Ricki Lee Jones), and mixing engineer Tony Lash (Elliot Smith, Feist) in an intense four‐day session in Silverlake, CA the two created a universe of sound that is sparse, yet playful and propulsive for their eponymous collaborative album. Leveraging Feeny's quietly costly vocals and classic pop songwriting against ohnedis's exhilarating polyryhthms, the team masterfully maximized what a single ukulele, a solo voice, a looped guitar and a set of drums can be. Audiences across the US and Europe have been mesmerized by the spell Feeny and Johnedis cast on stage.

Feeny is best known for her 2006 album, “Hurricane Glass” The single “Mr. Blue,” was featured in “Running with Scissors”, “The O.C.”, and “Miss Conception”. All of the attention garnered by “Hurricane Glass” resulted in the album being picked up by EMI Records. Feeny has played internationally as a headline act and in support of: Wilco, Belle and Sebastian, Suzanne Vega, John Prine, The Indigo Girls, Kelly Jones (Stereophonics) and Martha Wainwright.

 

 

THUNDER AND STEEL DOWN UNDER

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:THUNDER AND STEEL DOWN UNDER
Label:SKOL
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

As it was mentioned on VH1's "That Metal Show", RIOT are one of the innovators of Metal music in America and beyond. Their albums such as "Fire Down Under", "Rock City", "Narita", "Restless Breed" or "Born In America" are the classics of Heavy Metal, and their '88 LP "Thundersteel" helped to shape a genre which we know as Power Metal. Band's history has been marked by bunch of tragic events: Rhett Forrester who fronted RIOT between 1981 and 1986 was killed in 1994, the original vocalist Guy Speranza (in RIOT between 1975 and 1981) lost his battle with cancer in 2003, and band's founding member and leader Mark Reale (who was also the only one constant RIOT member since the beginning of the band) left us in 2012, after suffering Crohn's disease.

"Thunder And Steel Down Under" is not a usual compilation with bunch of cover songs. It's a celebration of the RIOT and Mark Reale legacy, and a homage paid by both American and European bands and musicians

SKYLINE WHISPERS

Band:NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA
Album:SKYLINE WHISPERS
Label:CORONER
Format:CD
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

"The Night Flight Orchestra" started like so many others as an innocent yet serious drunken idea when Björn Strid (Soilwork) and David Andersson (Mean Streak, Soilwork session player) were on the road together somewhere in North America in 2007. Björn and David were bonding over what they considered "classic" or not, from rock'n'roll conspiracies to being arrested in a lobby with nothing but leather pants on. All those scenarios, fictional or real, needed a soundtrack. They also came to think that whether you're on a metal tour or not, a lot of classic rock songs say it all and can really lend you a helping hand and make you forget about everything, especially when in motion or travelling. The classic escape. The never-ending road trip. The transatlantic night flight. It may sound simple and naive but what it all comes down to is that we all need that soundtrack to feel extra special, whether you have been arrested in a lobby or not. It didn't take long before bass player Sharlee D'Angelo (Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars) joined forces as well as keyboard player Richard Larsson (Von Benzo) and drummer Jonas Källsbäck (Mean Streak). The goal was to reclaim the 70's/early 80's sense for classic melody, the forgotten recipe to a timeless song, preferably a song mentioning a city, street name or an exhilarating alcoholic beverage. Anything that will have you spitting out the word "classic".

 

 

COLD INFERNO

Band:DISARMONIA MUNDI
Album:COLD INFERNO
Label:CORONER
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

It all started around the year 2000 when Ettore with a bunch of friends/musicians composed and recorded into his own home-studio the first self-produced opus entitled “Nebularium”: a brilliant piece of progressive and atmospheric extreme music. The record received an amazing feedback and allowed the band to sign a contract for the worldwide distribution of the next two albums. While working on the new album the band almost lost all of its components and joined forces with Claudio and got in contact with Speed from Soilwork to have him as a guest on the new record. The year 2004 finally saw the release of the long anticipated second studio album entitled “Fragments Of D-Generation”: no more progressive atmospheres, but a faster and more energetic musical vibe with a huge injection of melody and a more twisted and aggressive vocal/lyrical approach. Being a worldwide success the record helped the band to enlarge their fan base and granted them their own place in the crowded melodic extreme metal scene. The year after Mirco left the band, but new songs were already coming out Ettore’s hat and the third record (“Mind Tricks” - 2006) showed that the renewed creative identity built by Ettore and Claudio was stronger than ever and far from being exhausted: a darker and heavier sound featuring multiple vocal layers by both Claudio and Ettore (with Speed collaborating again as a guest on some parts of the new songs) made this record their best release so far. And finally year 2009: Ettore and Claudio are once again working together to properly complete the songs that will be featured on the fourth Disarmonia Mundi record entitled “The Isolation Game”. Before the unleashing of the new full-length album a re-issue of the first album “Nebularium” sees the light via Coroner Records featuring a brand new artwork and an additional cd of previously unreleased tracks entitled “The Restless Memoirs”. Winter 2009: finally “The Isolation Game” is unleashed worldwide. The album sounds like the heaviest thing the band has recorded up to date: a perfect combination of brutal aggression, classical guitar melodies, extreme vocals and catchy choruses. Some of the songs also feature guest appearances by Björn “Speed” Strid (Soilwork) on vocals and Olof Mörck (Nightrage) on solos. In 2011 Disarmonia Mundi's third album "Mind Tricks" (produced by Ettore Rigotti and mixed at Studio Fredman in 2006) has been re-released by Coroner Records in an "Extended Version" Digipak format with new cover artwork and four additional bonus tracks including a brand new song entitled "Ringside Seat To Human Tragedy" featuring Christian Älvestam (Solution .45, ex-Scar Symmetry).

Band:NIBIRU
Album:PADMALOTUS
Label:ARGONAUTA
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Since their inception in 2012, NIBIRU gave vent to their ritualized improvisation urge. They totally refused the concept of ordinary song form, leaving their energy flow, and channelling that into live recordings. In Fall 2014 NIBIRU signed to Argonauta Records, and CAOSGON and NETRAYONI (originally self‐released) were reissued by the label in January 2015. Following their philosophical path, the band crafts PADMALOTUS. Once again, the lyrics are in Enochian language. The 4 tracks were written between September 2014 and January 2015. According to the previous albums, also PADMALOTUS is connected to occult themes of Eastern Orient. NIBIRU loves exploring the Left‐Hand Path (Vama Marg), Kuala rituals, Aghori rituals and Kundalini awakening.

Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Based in Providence, Rhode Island (USA) and combining dark ambient electronics, metal guitars and excruciatingly inhuman vocals, TOVARISH explore themes such as bio‐terrorism, man‐made disasters and paranoia. Glaciallypaced, cold, and depressive, their music challenges listeners with dense, aleatory textures offering only fleeting respite in brief moments of coherent rhythm and melody. The new album “This Terrible Burden”, also featuring the stunning voice of Yoshiko Ohara (of BLOODY PANDA fame), is highly anticipated as a destructive work made on drones, guitars and beastly voices! Highly recommended if you like acts as Gnaw Their Tongues or Khanate.

After the Copenhagen 5 piece formed in 2012, released a demo EP and a two-track EP, the first longplayer of top knotch doom will be released through TCM. The previously released songs wer recorded once again and put on the new record.Rock is the backbone of the record, the ghosts of classic rockbands haunts this records, but not taking over the sound of the band. The Vocals are reminiscend of Danzig and Year Of the Goat, but less anthemic and more gritty. The guitar sound is not overly distorted, which gives this record the taste of old spiderwebs from a tomb, but played in the fashion of Thin Lizzy.The lyrical center orbits around doom rock topics, like occults, fantasy, close to In Solitude and Cirith Ungol.Obviously these dudes gave the universe, demons and drugs a serious thought!As if the last 30 years of metal evolution weren't there, the band strikes through distorted blues riffs, spooky lyrics and mind crippling slow drum parts. This proto-doom band swings like Bill Ward, battling through guitar parts when Tommi Iommi and Victor Griffin meet in hell, topped with the reminiscient sound of Bobby Liebling. Blues, swing and soul mixed in satans kitchen, can't miss this out!

When Nirvana were dissolved following the death of their iconic frontman Kurt Cobain, few considered the future prospects of their surviving members due to the seismic shock and enormous cultural impact of the tragedy. Yet drummer Dave Grohl’s metamorphosis into a singer, songwriter and bandleader proved as successful as it was unexpected, and with the release of the Foo Fighters’ debut album in 1995, a group was born that fused pop melody with the urgency and power of punk and grunge, and across a twenty year career they have become a towering force in the rock world. The revealing interviews featured on this DVD, taken from across the band’s career, capture a confident, passionate and inspired group of musicians, with Grohl as their driving force, and they discuss their musical journey in detail – their albums, their stage show, their sound and their influences.

Album:CHAPTER AND VERSE
Label:CLOUD LINE MEDIA
Format:DVD
Genre:POP

When Mumford & Sons first stepped out onto the London club circuit in 2008, few who witnessed these early, intimate live shows would have anticipated the staggering rise to international prominence that would occur over the following two years. Blending the rustic, acoustic instrumentation of folk music with a modern sensibility and sound, the timeless material that emerged on their debut album, Sigh No More, found a significant global audience, and the band were propelled into the spotlight. Further cementing their reputation with Babel in 2012, Mumford & Sons continued to attract an ever-growing fanbase while collecting a brace of notable awards, yet the following year announced that they were going on an indefinite hiatus. In 2015, however, Marcus Mumford, Winston Marshall, Ben Lovett and Ted Dwanethey have returned to pick up where they left off. This DVD features over an hour of in-depth interviews with Mumford & Sons in which the band members discuss their musical career in detail – their albums, their stage show, their sound and their influences. The interviews capture a humble and good-humoured group of friends riding on the crest of a wave, aware that their best is still yet to come.

MODE - cd

Band:OLTEN
Album:MODE - cd
Label:DIVISION
Format:cd
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

Why would ØLTEN release a new record? Their previous one is far from obsolete! To be honest, I never thought I'd need another. Their self-titled EP still sit proudly on my desk. It looks like my grandma's ancient dresser: it's built to last, assembled too carefully, impossible to move. It reminds me of these massive furnitures from the old days, when cabinetmakers were really willing to produce solid looking, patiently handcrafted and reliable furnitures you would only yield to your grandchildren when they get their fifth baby. ØLTEN's organic rock is like the finest forest wood, the older and the dryer it gets, the better it sounds. So frankly, now that I already own one, why would I bother getting another ? Simply because it is bigger, crunchier, heavier, louder, longer and olten-er. As a passionate broker I don't need it - but I desire it. Is there a weight limit to their art? What am I gonna do with all that firewood? What if my entire flat ends up being too small for their lumbermen riffs? Well, I guess the guys from ØLTEN just don't give a shit - all three of them are giants already…

Featuring a collaborative song with ex-Breach singer Tomas Liljedahl

ANGEST

Band:VANHELGA
Album:ANGEST
Label:FOLTER
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

VANHELGA was formed in Linköping, Sweden, in 2001 by ex-LIFELOVER musician J. Ottosson, aka 145188, who got together with like-minded musicians in order to finally breathe life into his vision, something he had not been able to do with any previous bands and musicians he had worked with. Through music and lyrics VANHELGA, which, translated from Swedish means "Profane", explores the darker side of humanity. The one that few will admit exists, but which nevertheless is a huge part of every individual's existence. VANHELGA's music can doubtlessly be classed as black metal, but that would be too restrictive a definition. Their music is cold and sinister but with melodies and melancholic moments that can draw you in and lull you into a false sense of security before you realize, too late, that you have been caught in an ominous web of sound that sends shivers down your spine.

Re-release of the sold out Ångest album - Highly recommended for fans of LIFELOVER and SHINING

In recent times, few artists have made such a staggering entrance onto the global stage as Sam Smith.

These songs of pain and longing, perfectly intoned by Sam’s rich, expressive voice, quickly won over audiences worldwide, and by 2015, with four Grammys to his name and a host of other awards and accolades, he had firmly established himself at the very top of popular music.

This DVD features over an hour of filmed interviews with Sam Smith, and they reveal a down-to-earth, sensitive yet charming artist with a real passion and dedication to his music, and in these revealing interviews Sam is fully prepared to discuss his work and his life with a refreshing honesty.

LADY GAGA - OFF THE RECORD

Band:LADY GAGA
Album:LADY GAGA - OFF THE RECORD
Label:CLOUD LINE MEDIA
Format:DVD
Genre:POP

Lady Gaga – Enigmatic, eccentric, controversial, and yet endlessly fascinating. A self-styled icon for the outsiders, the outcasts and those who dance to a different beat, Gaga set out from her very first album, in 2008, to revolutionize pop music, and her fusing of eclectic musical forms, powerful vocals and distinctive song-writing, along with her inspired and dynamic visual style, have enabled ‘Mother Monster’ to carve her own path through pop culture. Despite the numerous female artists who have followed in her wake and tried, in vain, to inject some of Gaga’s eccentricity into their own personae, the artist formerly known as Stefani Germanotta remains a totally singular figure. Whether recording a collection of jazz standards with Tony Bennett or singing a medley of songs from The Sound of Music at the Academy Awards ceremony, Lady Gaga’s musical journey continues to be as unpredictable as it is extraordinary. The revealing interviews featured on this DVD, taken from across Gaga’s career, capture a passionate and inspired artist with a biting sense of humour, and the singer discusses both her work and her life at length and in depth.
