SO CAL SPEED SHOPS HOT ROD CLASSICS

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:SO CAL SPEED SHOPS HOT ROD CLASSICS
Label:ROCK BEAT
Format:4CD BOX SET
Genre:Rock And Roll/Psychobilly

Rockbeat records (Home of the acclaimed Moving Sidewalks and Surf Age Nuggets box sets) presents the ultimate collection of Hot Rod tunes. 4 CDS, over 120 tracks all bound in a hardcover package with a 80 page book. Rock-A-Billy, Blues, Country and Rock and Roll are all represented.

Includes tracks by Howlin’ Wolf, Gene Vincent, Dick Dale, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Rudy Ray Moore and scores of others. Package features an introduction by Billy Gibbons (Z.Z. Top), plus essays by James Austin and Pete Chapouris, president of So-Cal Speed Shops, an international Hot Rod specialty retailer. The music in this collection represents the golden age of gasoline, hot rods and drag racing.

There have been collections featuring the major chart hits but for our garage soundtrack, we focus on many of the lesser-known songs that rarely saw the light of day and are true to the original spirit of hot rod culture. The ‘50s hot rod songs were able to tap into the core of the culture and capture the excitement of racing down the highway. There is a kind of exhilaration that that these one hit wonders were able to capture. It was all so new. Most of them were on small “mom and pop” labels that went nowhere. Find them all here!

 

 

CLAWING INTO BLACK SUN

Band:WOLVHAMMER
Album:CLAWING INTO BLACK SUN
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Minneapolis/Chicago metal band WOLVHAMMER have morphed into quite the killing machine over the years of self-infliction, abuse, and debauchery. With their new third full-length album, “Clawing Into Black Sun”, WOLVHAMMER (the core of the band consisting of vocalist Adam Clemans, guitarist Jeff Wilson, and drummer Heath Rave) have easily created their best work yet where their volatile amalgamation of black metal, deathrock, and punk has reached a new level of, dare we say maturity. Said term used loosely, but with “Clawing Into Black Sun”, WOLVHAMMER’s musical development has grown immensely, honed with a new sense of focus since their vicious and acclaimed “Obsidian Plains” album from 2011.

With the band planning on many live assaults in support of “Clawing Into Black Sun” (with the band’s last tour run seeing them on a successful run supporting Black Dahlia Murder and Skeletonwitch), the new WOLVHAMMER album will lend a new awareness to the band and see them become even more recognized with their most punishing and accomplished offering yet.

 

 

SABBRACADAVER

Band:MONARCH
Album:SABBRACADAVER
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

For years, France’s most recognized and active extreme doom metal band MONARCH have delivered some of the most punishing amplifier worship that has befallen doom metal through the band’s myriad of releases. This has earned them the reputation as one of the most recognized extreme doom metal bands in the scene today, through countless live shows and tours they have under their belt, the music of MONARCH is an experience to behold within the realm of doom metal.

Forged by a heaving earth rumbling low-end rhythm section being harnessed by the crawling and churning riffs of despair, and all held within the grips of the harsh and spellbinding vocals of Emilie Bresson, MONARCH have continued to raise the bar and push their own threshold with every succeeding release they unleash amongst their repertoire.

The band’s latest work and their Profound Lore Records debut, entitled “Sabbracadaver”, sees MONARCH create what could very well be their heaviest, most haunting, and moving album yet. Those who have already fallen under MONARCH’s spell will recognize “Sabbracadaver” as the band’s most enchanting work, an album that will finds its way within the extreme doom metal hierarchy.

OF THINGS SEEN AND UNSEEN

Band:SERPENT VENOM
Album:OF THINGS SEEN AND UNSEEN
Label:THE CHURCH WITHIN
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

The 2014 release of the album 'Of Things Seen & Unseen' marks a new beginning for Serpent Venom.

Conceived in 2008, Serpent Venom, hailing from London and Hertfordshire, brought their brand of 70's tinged, traditional heavy doom to a wide audience across the UK, receiving high praise for debut album 'Carnal Altar' and their live shows. Upon the departure of Pete Fox, Serpent Venom enlisted guitarist Roland Scriver, (Sloth, End of Level Boss) and toured hard across the British Isles and Europe. With a ferocious live presence and thunderous volume, the band continued to cement their reputation as a live act playing with the likes of Trouble, Pentagram, Conan, Black Magician, Goatess and Bast, all whilst honing the riffs for the second album.

'Of Things Seen & Unseen' was recorded at Skyhammer Studio in October 2013 with Chris Fielding (Electric Wizard, Conan, Capricorns, Taint, Coltsblood, Bast) at the helm. It is the first recording to feature guitarist Roland Sc river and marks a song writing approach that came straight out of the jam room and involved the whole band.

PURPLE HILL WITCH

Band:PURPLE HILL WITCH
Album:PURPLE HILL WITCH
Label:THE CHURCH WITHIN
Format:CD
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. The 7"-vinyl entitled "Alchemy" is their only official release so far, but the band has recently been in the studio finishing up their first full length album, which is expected to finally surface in the early parts of 2014.

 

 

BEELZEFUZZ - LP

Band:BEELZEFUZZ
Album:BEELZEFUZZ - LP
Label:THE CHURCH WITHIN
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Beelzefuzz is a heavy rock trio from North East MD formed in 2009. Releasing a 4 song demo in 2010 they established a loyal fan base in the DE, MD, PA area that eventually led to signing with Germany's very prestigious Church Within records in 2012. Beelzefuzz incorporates a very unique style of heavy music similar to the classic sounds of early 70's bands such as Uriah Heep, Deep Purple and Black sabbath as well as contemporary acts Pentagram, Graveyard and Earthride. Still Beelzefuzz remain decidely independent with their own personal brand of melodic heavy rock and the David Byron, John Lawton crossed with Mark Farner vocal stylings of singer and guitarist Dana Ortt shine through beautifully in songs such as "Lotus Jam", "All the Feeling Returns", "Reborn" and the haunting "Hypnotize". Dana Ortt along with bassist Pug Kirby were joined by drummer Darin McCloskey (Pale Divine) in 2011 and entered the studio again to record a new four song demo. Sparking quite a bit of label interest they secured the deal with The Church Within records and are set to release their first self titled album via the label in 2013.

THE WORLD IS BURNING

Band:MAT McNERNEY AND KIMMO HELEN
Album:THE WORLD IS BURNING
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:TV and MOVIE

A haunting soundtrack to a short movie by Mat McNerney (Hexvessel/Beastmilk) and Kimmo Helén (Hexvessel), inspired by Newfoundland Folk and the Canadian wilderness.

"We researched a lot into Newfoundland and traditional folk music of the past and today, spending a few months looking into and listening to libraries of collected works. I was surprised at how much it reminded me of the Celtic music of my Irish upbringing and ancestry and felt immediate connection to it and an instant ability to relate to the stories. Together with the multi-talented craftsman Kimmo Helén we set about creating a soundscape using only traditional instruments that would have been used in Newfoundland folk. We worked to try to open a portal to dream, nostalgia, a deeper yearning for our roots and the joy that comes from finding your place in the universe. We hoped to be able to help tell Justin's story in as humble and honest way we could and to find a musical voice to his character's inner emotions and journey."

The entities behind the cult act Rippikoulu, known for their 1993 tape release Musta seremonia, have been silently lurking in the shadows for the past 21 years. Then, on a particularly cold winter's day in early 2014, a shipment bearing the group's emblem is mysteriously delivered to the Svart bunker, and inside the parcel there is a master tape.

MUSTA SEREMONIA - REISSUE

Band:RIPPIKOULU
Album:MUSTA SEREMONIA - REISSUE
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Lovingly tape mastered for vinyl by Orgone Studios from the original DAT master. Rippikoulu's Musta seremonia is both an international cult item and an integral part of the history of Svart Records as well - a reissue of the original 1993 tape was one of the earliest Svart releases back in 2010. Back then, this album was considered as one of the best kept secrets in the Finnish underground metal scene. Four years and one quickly sold out reissue later Rippikoulu's greatness is no longer a secret, and we are happy to bring Musta seremonia back on the market. Rippikoulu began their musical endeavours back in the late eighties, and like so many of their contemporaries, evolved from primitive punk noise to death metal. However, while many bands played death metal with groovy riffing and overall headbanging attitude, Rippikoulu's choice of style was darker. Their downtuned metal is bleak and nearly unbearably heavy in its execution, dark and soul-searching in its themes, intertwining faster bursts of chaos with slow, doomy passages.Rippikoulu released the Musta Seremonia demo album on tape in 1993 and then disappeared. They never gained much popularity in their time, but their legacy has steadily grown.

ALL ABOARD

Band:THE DELEGATORS
Album:ALL ABOARD
Label:BRAINLAB GROOVE
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Reggae/Dub/Ska

Debut album from South London’s The Delegators

The Delegators play rocksteady, ska and early reggae, with hints of Motown and 60s soul. Features lead vocalist Janet Kumah, who commands an audience with her electrifying stage presence and gutsy vocal performance. Laying down a relentless groove behind her are a bunch of fine musicians, including Leon Vince, Ramy Eissa and Arthur Béranger. Since 2008 they have been inspiring audiences from London to Leipzig, from Rennes to Rome, to dance to their irresistible beat.

To get an idea of the Delegators' sound, imagine the Supremes moved to Kingston via South London. They've shared bills with reggae legends and acts as diverse as The Pioneers, Dave Barker, Pat Kelly, Doreen Shaffer, The Nextmen, Hepcat and The English Beat. The Delegators kicked off the 2012 International Ska Festival in London with a bang, have performed four times at the Glastonbury Festival (including an opening slot for Lady Gaga!) and featured on Mark Lamarr's 'God's Jukebox' on Radio 2.

 

 

BAREFOOT IN THE CAR PARK

Band:GROOVY UNCLE feat SUZI CHUNK
Album:BAREFOOT IN THE CAR PARK
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:7" VINYL
Genre:Psych/Garage

The brand new 45 from Unc 'n' Chunk is a typically light and shade affair. "Barefoot In The Car Park"—a drivin', hip shakin', un-sit-down-able piece of ass-kickery which has Suzi Chunk and the boys working on all cylinders—could easily become part of the soundtrack to the summer of 2014 or even some hitherto unreleased movie. Swinging jungle drums nail the whole thing to the floor courtesy of garage/beat legend Bruce Brand (who also provides a blistering lead guitar). Surf is most definitely up!

Flip side "Wet Weekend" takes us to a darker but no less cinematic place where clouds descend for approximately 4 glorious minutes and we bask in isolated reflection. Beautifully plaintive guitar work from Ben Jones, astonishingly majestic drum and bass playing from Mole, lead vocals and a wonderfully audacious melodica solo (!) from songwriter Glenn Prangnell will leave you breathless. Not bad for a B-side!

49TH PARALLEL

Band:49TH PARALLEL
Album:49TH PARALLEL
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

First official vinyl reissue since its original release in 1969 -  LP limited to 500 copies

One of the top Canadian rock albums of the psychedelic era - Comes with color insert with band history and photos.

In the spring of 1969, 49th Parallel had a hit in with ‘Twilight Woman’, a lovely song that sounds like a poppier version of what bands like Tomorrow were doing in England. That success led to the release of 49th Parallel’s only album. All hyperbole aside, it is easily one of the top Canadian rock albums of the psychedelic era. The album is strong throughout—from the pulsating psychedelia of ‘Lazerander Filchy’ and the ultra-strange ‘(The) Magician’, the shimmering beauty of 'Twilight Woman', to the quintessential slashing guitars punk edginess of ‘Now That I'm a Man’ and ‘(Come On Little Child &) Talk To Me’. Dan Lowe's blazing fuzz guitar work stands out on ‘Missouri’ and also when matched by organist Jack Velker's brilliant work on ‘Eye To Eye’, ‘Talk To Me’ and ‘(The) People’.

Format:LP VINYL

It’s time again for a signal from Electric Moon! After long and extensive touring in 2013, now there appears new material, bit by bit, from these tours. This time a really wild concert! At the end of the „Electric Full Moon Heading To South Tour 2013“, there happened a absolutely mindblowing, freaking out and wild show in Austria, Feldkirch, at the „Graf Hugo“. And it got recorded and now released on CD and double LP! The sound is really rough, wild, directly and near. Recorded on stage with a stereo microphone, so you get the pure sound from the „first row“close to the action. It’s not the best high-end sound but it’s authentic. This is psychedelia at close range from the trippiest sort. The symbiosis between audience and band is stunning and everything ends up in wild, hypnotic ecstasy!! This is a live album as it should be: Unadulterated, straight and face-to-face – and it substantiates the unique liveintensity of Electric Moon! The beautiful cover artwork is from Lulu Artwork! again – who is the bass player Komet Lulu of Electric Moon. And, as always, this was mastered by living legend Eroc.

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

Stoner/sludge formation KOMATSU got noticed, both in their homeland as abroad during 2013.

Since 2005 and under the moniker "Thot", Grégoire Fray has been imprinting the industrial-rock scene with his own sonic personality: "vegetal noise music", a term he invented for all of those who want to put a label on their food. Thot’s new album, ‘The City That Disappears’ (mixed by Magnus Lindberg from Cult of Luna) was introduced earlier this year by a first single, HTRZ that was unveiled exclusively on the deaddrops.com network. More than ever, this new album provides a wild blend of electronics and rock music, where Grégoire Fray’s footsteps lead us from his former themes up to a new organic & urban area. You’ll get lost, probably, but it will be exciting

BRIDGE CAROLS

Band:LAURA GIBSON and ETHAN ROSE
Album:BRIDGE CAROLS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

Bridge Carols, the 2010 project from Portland, OR friends Laura Gibson and Ethan Rose, takes the listener to a place that exists between the notes and behind the words of modern music. It’s music that feels intimately familiar, timeless; at its heart, quite natural and human. Bridge Carols began as a conversation of mutual appreciation and curiosity - a shared desire to challenge old ways of working. Ethan had mostly distanced his music from words, while Laura had often felt bound by them. They began work on Bridge Carols by experimenting with different methods of collaboration. Inspired by Laura's voice, Ethan began building soundscapes, while Laura looked through piles of notebooks, coming across old phrases, improvising lyrics and wordless vocalizations, stream of consciousness singing. Ethan then took the recorded words and vocalizations from these sessions - cutting them into bits and pieces - rearranging and juxtaposing them against each other to stretch them into new musical poems. The resulting pieces developed into songs. The songs developed into Bridge Carols, a record of deep atmosphere and an almost sublingual resonance.

OMNISCIENT

Band:STEEL PROPHET
Album:OMNISCIENT
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The originators of the term “Progressive Power Metal”, Steel Prophet(US), have written and performed more than 100 diverse songs in their career. With numerous chord and melody variations spanning multiple metal/rock genres, and lyrics delving from political, social, and spiritual, there is very little the metal masters haven’explored since the nucleus of Vince Dennis (b), Rick Mythiasin (v) and Steve Kachinsky (g) came together in 1989. Poor timing is one of their main traits; having released a Progressive Metal masterpiece as their debut album, at the height of the grunge scene in 1995 (The Goddess Principle). The album came hot on the heels of the most beloved demo tape in German underground history; “Inner Ascendance”. After three releases on the obscure German label Brainstorm Records, the band was picked up by Nuclear Blast Records in 1998 and released five high quality records including the well-loved fan favorites “Dark Hallucinations” and “Messiah”. The onetime heirs apparent to Judas Priest and Iron Maiden have had a difficult road since the reformation of their ancestor’s bands. Having soldiered on, and withstanding numerous personnel upheavals (Including a brief detour with Nadir D’Priest {ex-London} taking over on vocals for Rick Mythiasin on the “Beware” album[Massacre Records]), they stand poised on the brink of metal super-stardom with the imminent release of their magnum opus, 2014’s “Omniscient” album. It is a complicated concept album revealing in spectacular fashion, sci fi elements, adventure, imagination, and philosophy. It also marks the resurrection of the ‘Guitar Army’ concept pioneered by legends like Queen and Led Zeppelin. The next chapter for Steel Prophet is the anointing of this legend into the great pantheon of metal revolutionaries. STANDARD CD.

THE ORDER OF THE SOLAR TEMPLE

Band:THE ORDER OF THE SOLAR TEMPLE
Album:THE ORDER OF THE SOLAR TEMPLE
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

There was a time in the History of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal when the boundaries of those genres were blurry and it was natural for them to flow together into powerful musical expressions, very often under the flag of occultism and esoterism. Today, those times of great ardour and creativity revive in the arcane melodies of The Order Of The Solar Temple, a wicked congregation performing strange rituals in the ancient magik of rock and roll. Conceived in 2012 by Canadian singer/guitarist Matt "Macabre" Emery - once in the ranks of Funeral Circle and other Vancouver's metal acts - The Order Of The Solar Temple plaits the occult-tinged proto-metal of Blue Öyster Cult with the dark, introvert visions of Paul Chain; the doom arabesques of Pagan Altar with the dreadful metal outbursts of Demon and Mercyful Fate; the teachings of Aleister Crowley with the denim-and-leather philosophy of the first metal era. "The Order Of The Solar Temple" is the band's spectacular eponymous album. A mass of overdrive, grandiose chants and pulsing sonic frequencies beckons you. Discard your robes and close your eyes... Comes as a jewelcase CD with 16-page booklet. Cover art by Luciana Lupe Vasconcelos.

"Violet Dreams" is a solitary, introspective, and mostly improvised music voyage; the observation of an artist that has internalized the gloomy riffs and sorrowful atmospheres of doom, transforming them into mystic, bizarre mindscapes. "After years I am finally opening a new chapter in my doom journey," commented John

In the late eighties the three possessed servants of Hell of the band MYSTIFIER (Brazil) released their first demos and founded the special sound of Southern American Black and Death Metal. With their raw guitar sound and the hellish vocals they led Metal on paths unknown, deep down into the pits of Hell. Comparisons to VON, SARCOFAGO and HELLHAMMER are legit – serious business, you get the idea.

Dunkelheit Produktionen now re-releases the bands first three Demos, “Tormenting the Holy Trinity“ (1989), “T.E.A.R.“ (1990) & “Aleister Crowley“ (1991) in a very special compilation. A5 Digi with poster.
