COLD OF AGES

Band:ASH BORER
Album:COLD OF AGES
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Arcata, California’s ASH BORER formed several years ago and would eventually, in a short timespan, become known as one of the more prominent black metal bands that hailed from California, being aligned with such elite artists as the (now defunct) Weakling, Xasthur, Leviathan, and the more recent resurgence of The Black Twlight Circle (Volhan, Arizmenda, Dolovotre etc.) and the Rhinocervs cult (Odz Manouk and Tukaaria).

ASH BORER play very harsh and bleak time-stretching atmospheric, ambient, yet searing raw black metal. Their first demo released in 2009 was just a mere glimpse of the inevitable sonic storm ASH BORER would eventually amass, with the following split EP they did with Fell Voices, their decimating live shows that would ensue, and last year’s release of their acclaimed self-titled debut.

The band’s new album “Cold Of Ages” is ASH BORER currently at the height of their powers, making them one of the more important black metal bands to hail from American ground today alongside such bands as Negative Plane, Avichi, Inquisition, Leviathan, and the aforementioned Black Twilight Circle and Rhinocervs horde. A much more devastating and darker output than the debut, “Cold Of Ages” (which also features guest vocals by Jessica Way of WORM OUROBOROS on the tracks ‘Convict All Flesh” and “Removed Forms”) is a surging, twisted, primal, and sprawling black metal epic that will identify itself as one of the most prominent black metal releases of the year.

ATRA MORS

Band:EVOKEN
Album:ATRA MORS
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Formed almost 20 years ago, EVOKEN are known as one of, if not the godfathers of epic and atmospheric funeral/death doom metal that has come from American ground. They are pretty much one of, if not the first American band to play this style of timeless doom metal, being influenced by the likes of such bands as Thergothon, Disembowelment, and the early years of bands such as Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride.

After their initial three demos, the band released their “Embrace The Emptiness” debut full-length in 1998 and up until 2007, they would release three more full-length albums on several European-based labels. All said albums are considered milestones in the genre and now, five years later since their last album, EVOKEN return at their most triumphant with their most powerful album to date. Still keeping in true EVOKEN tradition, “Atra Mors” heightens the band’s musical output by combining more elements that haven’t been incorporated into their sound previously, primarily adding more old-school death metal (considering it’s the movement the members grew out of) elements to the new album and even branching out a bit by incorporating some of the mellowest, yet most moving and searing moments in EVOKEN’s illustrious musical repertoire.

Another atmospheric death doom metal masterpiece for the year, the crowning achievement that is “Atra Mors” will serve its purpose in recognizing one of America’s doom metal forefathers and pioneers by solidifying their rightful place amongst the throne.

"Live in Nijmegen”, from the legendary Black Francis was recorded in Nijmegen, Netherlands on the Bluefinger / SvnFngrs tour in 2008. “[Svn Fngrs] was recorded in less than a week with just a bassist and a drummer, and it sounds like Black. . .made the most natural record he could” (Pitchfork). Bluefinger, which opens with ‘Captain Pasty’ and ‘Threshold Apprehension’ is the “nastiest rock blast we've had from Black in ages. . ‘Gripped by the spirit of Herman Brood’ while recording a bonus track for his 93-03 best of collection, Black wound up with Bluefinger, an entire ‘rock opera’ on Brood, the famous Dutch “rock ‘n’ roll junkie” (Brood, pronounced "Broat" was a long-time fixture on the Netherlands music scene and was romantically linked to Nina Hagen in the 80’s. He achieved fame throughout his home country but committed suicide by leaping from the roof of the Amsterdam Hilton in 2001).

With 24 tracks, Live in Nijmegen is an essential piece in any Frank Black / Black Francis / Pixies collection.

‘Shortly after being forced to add the “Sons of” to their name for legal reasons, Canada’s newly renamed Sons of Otis finally made their recorded debut with 1996��s lethargic space rock classic, Spacejumbofudge. Many bands in the so‐called stoner rock scene have laid claim to heavy space rock influences in their sound (most notably Monster Magnet in their early days), but you’d be hard pressed to find one who takes this claim more seriously than this trio.’ (Allmusic.com)

‘In general, these guys doom it up big time. Imagine listening to your favourite St. Vitus album on acid and you’ve got Sons Of Otis.’ (Metal‐rules.com)

YOU CAME THROUGH

Band:DAVE HARDING
Album:YOU CAME THROUGH
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

While in the midst of a tour with his band, Richmond Fontaine, Dave Harding got the inspiration to record his second album. So he contacted many of the same people who he had worked with on his first record, Across The Road: producer Mike Coykendall, members of Richmond Fontaine, guitarist Scott Hampton and vocalist Michael Jodell. What they created were 10 songs that mix folk, bluegrass and heartland rock with upbeat optimism and Harding's dry observations of life passing by his window at 70 mph. Highlights include the hook-laden "Shelly's Song", the gospel-tinged "Shores of Cornwall", as well as two duets with Jodell. You Came Through finds Harding hitting his stride as a gifted songwriter.

Second solo album from Dave Harding who is a founding and current member of Richmond Fontaine.

HIGH DAMAGE

Band:HIGH DAMAGE
Album:HIGH DAMAGE
Label:JARRING EFFECTS
Format:CD
Genre:Electro Dub / Dubstep/Grime/Hip Hop

Naturally called High Damage, this new crew brings true synergy between organic powerful energy and hypnotic machine's steadiness. They have here reversely worked starting touring together before recording the tracks. It has allowed them to keep first ideas and feelings and to use in studio sessions raw live materials. As a vortex movement attracting dubstep, noise, hiphop, break beat, techno or reggae in order to sublimate the styles, High Damage musical vibrations create insistent dream-like imagery. This music draws a dark, conscious and crank vision that leads audience to see in this rising utopian world both of nostalgic past tracks and snippets of present disguised as future. High Damage take paradoxes for his music. His heavy and uncompromising message clearly reflects our reality but cutting-edge beats and compositions' wild groove brings inevitably to dancing trance.

High Tone is a Dub precursor since1998, this latest album is their best yet

“The Wire” -  “Their music too is in deference to the late melodica king : deep and spiritually driven vibrations.”

“The Wire” - "High Tone can lay genuine claim to be France’s premier dubsters”.

LAST EXIT

Band:EMERGENCY
Album:LAST EXIT
Label:METAL POSTCARD
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

The Emergency are a three-piece synth and drum band from Melbourne. Their third album Last Exit sees them leave the world of cosmic disco behind to explore the heavily dubbed out atmospheres beyond. Like their previous releases, it blends pop hooks and melodies with left-field production. Last Exit sees Cinta Masters (Useless Children, Gold Tango) join Milo Kossowski (synth, vocals) and Morgan McWaters (synth, production), playing a drum kit hooked up to a custom programmed synthesizer that lets the drums play the synth in place of a keyboard. The result is sequenced synth lines that match the ebb and flow of the drumming rather than drumming which is forced to stick to a rigid programmed tempo. This allowed the band to form songs by experimenting in the rehearsal studio rather than writing on a computer or preprogramming sequencers. They call it the Cintasizer. 2012 also sees The Emergency playing their first US shows, including the Sometimes A Great Notion festival in Portland Oregon alongside Peaking Lights. The band are looking forward to their first international shows since headlining the 2009 Hanoi International Music Festival.

"In a word stunning. More club floor decimation from the Metal Postcard stable. This brooding beauty will appeal to everyone from disciples of Kraftwerk to lovers of DAF, gloriously parched with a retro accent and liberally dipped with stark minimalist grooves, this dislocated euro disko funk wrap ripples warily like a 'music for the masses' era Depeche Mode" - Losing Today (UK)

 

 

GRENGUS

Band:HORN OF THE RHINO
Album:GRENGUS
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Not that many band cite as influences BOLT THROWER, AUTOPSY and WINO or SOUNDGARDEN. Then again, not that many bands sound like Bilbao’s HORN OF THE RHINO. If in 2010 their first album ‘Weight Of Coronation’ on Doomentia Records proved to be slippery case – that is an album that denies any form of categorization, apart maybe from being filed under the ‘fucking heavy’ tag – its follow-up will undoubtedly see even more people scratching their heads, that is if they manage to survive this insanely powerful barrage of riffs.

A far more heavier and meaner affair than their previous offering, the subject matters of this fourth full-length alone should easily tip those who will dare stepping in that ‘Grengus’ is no nice walk in the park with songtitles like “Piles Of Severed Heads”, “Waste For Ghouls” or “Awaken Horror Of Tuul”. Once again, you’ll find here a collusion of sludge, doom and heavy fuckin’ metal but with the band own twist. Then again, it’s never totally devoid of melody somehow, with guitar player and frontman Javier Gŕlvez unmistakable voice still be the most valuable weapon in their armoury as he’s more than ever able to rasp in a demonic voice one second and sing in a soothing yet desperate way the next.

Gatefold printed on 425gsm Frovi paper, printed inner sleeves - Vinyl version contains a bonus track

 

 

WHERE ARE YOUR GODS NOW?

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

General are a 5-piece stoner rock band from Coventry and “Where Are Your Gods Now?” is their debut album.

“General is a band from the UK that has a huge buzz surrounding them. Aside from the fact that the legendary Billy Anderson has worked with them, this band is laying down some pretty fat stoner metal jams worthy of your attention. Fierce, soulful and in-your-face, these boys know how to rock and I’d say they do it rather well” – Heavy Planet

THE WARRIOR

Band:CHARIOT
Album:THE WARRIOR
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Chariot were the very living epitome of no frills metal, their approach too direct and maybe even too simple for some. For others, though, Pete Franklin and his band of merry men were pure, unadulterated metal, workmanlike and no nonsense in an effective manner. Signed to Shades records – run out of and owned by London's most prestigious import record store – the band released 'The Warrior' in 1984 to, generally speaking, positive critical acclaim.

'The Warrior' has been unavailable for quite a while and that makes this opportunity to re-connect with this particular recording a very welcome one indeed. If this is your first dose of Chariot, then we think you'll be very pleasantly surprised. If you are an old friend returning..then you know just what to expect! Strap yourself in and enjoy the ride! To make this release more collectable, it contains six bonus live tracks

 

 

BURNING AMBITION

Band:CHARIOT
Album:BURNING AMBITION
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Chariot’s second album 'Burning Ambition, originally released in 1986, was widely regarded as something of a disappointment, following as it did the band's impassioned and powerful 'The Warrior' debut. Whilst it would be true to say that it didn't quite live up to its thundering predecessor, time has been kind to the band's sophomore release and today, in the harsh light of critical re-appraisal, it sounds far better than most remember it to have been. “Screams The Night” in particular pushes all of the right buttons, while “Strangers” and “This Time You Lose” would not have been out of place on 'The Warrior', this album showing the band to be ploughing the same metallic furrow as other meat n' potatoes metal acts like Tank & Anvil.

'Burning Ambition' has been unavailable for quite a while and that makes this opportunity to reconnect with this particular recording a very welcome one indeed. If this is your first dose of Chariot, then we think you'll be very pleasantly surprised. If you are an old friend returning..then you know just what to expect! Strap yourself in and enjoy the ride!

LORD KRISNA VON GOLOKA

Band:SERGIUS GOLOWIN
Album:LORD KRISNA VON GOLOKA
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

In 1973, Rolf Ulrich Kaiser’s visionary powers acted as a catalyst for an authentic combination of acid, music and spirituality: the mystical LSD-fueled musical project “Lord Krishna von Goloka.” For this adventure into Indian and Oriental mythologies and legends, Kaiser asked esoteric Swiss artist (he was a friend of Giger’s), poet, specialist on Alpine folklore, and friend of Timothy Leary, Sergius Golowin, to join a group of musicians including Klaus Schulze and members of Wallenstein and Witthüser + Westrupp. It was perhaps mere coincidence that Golowin's classic treatise on witches, herbs, and magic mushrooms was published that same year (Magie der verbotenen Märchen); the book was fast becoming a cult item—it was secretly xeroxed in what was then- Communist East Germany, and later distributed in the hippie-underground there. Sergius Golowin’s intellectual and spiritual world of occultism, popular legends, and shamanism were the foundation for the project. He was responsible for the lyrics, which consisted of incantatory recitations in German over the intriguing compositions. Our Lion Productions edition comes with a 24-page booklet which includes a Sergius Golowin biography, plus translated excerpts from interviews and texts, a list of Golowin's writings, translations of the original LP notes, text, and lyrics, as well as a Kosmischen Kuriere label discography. And on a personal note, the song ‘Die Weiße Alm’ has long been one of our most-beloved cosmic folk finds... uplifting without being cloying.

 

 

PARA HACER MUSICA

Band:MIGUEL Y EL COMITE
Album:PARA HACER MUSICA
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

El Syndikato made Miguel Livichich a rock star in South America; but it was his sole effort as “Miguel y el Comité” that made him a groove-loving crate-digger’s dream! Livichich left El Syndikato, and in an instant, formed another band, joining forces with an existing group called Feeling Rock. This new group was called Miguel y el Comité (Miguel and the Committee)—a clear allusion to Livichich’s previous group (the Syndicate), and also a demonstration of his leadership role; even though Miguel y el Comité worked as a proper band in their structure, Miguel Livichich made all decisions concerning the group. As Livichich recalled, “I told them, I want a band to join me, but we all work together... more rock and candombe and a few things more commercial. Accept, and we make a titanic effort. An aggressive launch. I do not lie, in fifteen days we were recording the LP. It was pin, pin and we were playing at all dances. It was amazing working with Miguel y el Comité.”That band's 1971 album, with Livichich firmly at the helm, fused the local candombe rhythm with beat music in an unusual and aggressive (oft-times funky, break-beat) way. Miguel y el Comité played mostly original songs, but they also mixed in covers of tracks by other Uruguayan bands. They were the first to sing hits by other groups (El Kinto, Los Shakers), which added a new dimension to the burgeoning Uruguayan scene. Percussion plays a key role in the band’s sound, although the guitar playing is most distinctive: sometimes melodic, at other times carving a path through the mix, with a hard and acid distorted fuzz guitar sound, as on the title track and the fabulous cover of El Kinto's ‘Qué me importa.’ Dynamite! Comes with a 28-page booklet, printed on FSC recycled, chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer fiber paper manufactured using biogas energy, with band history, photos, and bi-lingual lyrics. Limited edition of 500 copies.

SORRY

Band:WHITE LUNG
Album:SORRY
Label:Deranged
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

High-energy manic punks, White Lung, are back with their sophomore release, Sorry. Their 2010 debut It’s the Evil earned them the title as the primary ambassadors for Canada’s emergent punk scene receiving critical acclaim from CHARTAttack to Maximum Rock n’ Roll to Terminal Boredom and their follow-up does not disappoint. McCorkell’s signature driving, off-kilter riffage paired with Way’s snarling and aggressive yet melodic vocals and the hard-hitting rhythmic duo of Grady Mackintosh on bass and Anne-Marie Vassilou on drums amp up White Lung’s position from ambassadors to the queens (and king) of Canandian noise rock.

Bowing to the inevitable need for comparison, according to Vice Magazine, “White Lung combine the feral energy of the Germs with the taut, wiry dynamics of the Wipers and have released a string of singles that keep improving in a bewilderingly exponential fashion.” Also present in their sound are golden era Kurt and Courtney, The Bags, and Rocket from the Crypt. This wealth of influences doesn’t mean the band’s sound is hard to pin-down. Written and recorded nearly simultaneously, Sorry manages to be both raw and complex, thanks to White Lung’s focus on cohesive writing. Sorry may have been stressful to record, but it’s a joy to listen to. It signals a new era for White Lung, featuring denser more melodic songs that maintain the rough edge of their punk pedigree.

DARK DAYS

Band:SULA BASSANA
Album:DARK DAYS
Label:SULATRON RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

After hearing not much about multiinstrumentalist Dave Schmidt (Sula Bassana) for a long time, and after his focus was on Electric Moon all the time, the long awaited new space-rock masterpiece is finally ready! The space-rock legend recorded and produced all the stuff again alone – mostly. Psych-fans know Schmidt from his other bands and projects: Electric Moon, Zone Six, Liquid Visions, Psychedelic Monsterjam, Weltraumstaunen, Suedstern44, etc... The long awaited album, within you can explore your innermost and foreign worlds, can be seen as consistant progression and as follower of the space-rockmonster „The Night“ (released in 2009). About 70 minutes the listener gets pulled into a vortex of fuzzy guitars, repeatative rhythms, shimmering organs and synthesizers – what will chain you and not let you go again... Sprawling space-rock meets crunchy psych sound and experimental kraut-elements. Guests: David Henriksson (from the swedish band The Movements) performs the vox in „Underground“. Pablo Carneval (Electric Moon founding member) performs the drums in „Surrealistic Journey“ and „Bright Nights“. The whole thing got mastered by krautrock-legend EROC again. And the wonderfully psychedelic cover artwork is done by Lulu Artwork! (Komet Lulu, Electric Moon’s fuzz-bass). She created the painting „Dark Days“ while listening to the tunes of Sula Bassana, and that painting influenced him again while creating those songs... Kind of spezial symbiosis.

 

 

DANCING MADLY BACKWARDS

Band:CAPTAIN CRIMSON
Album:DANCING MADLY BACKWARDS
Label:Transubstans
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

70’s rock had a revival during the latest ten years, but what is it that makes a band stand out in today’s great variety of this kind of rock? Is it the uncompromising rawness of the blues-based Sabbath riffs that once was written? Is it the vintage speakers and instrument, combined with pure analogue recording that the commercial scene lacks? Or is it just spelled CAPTAIN CRIMSON? Four enthusiasts from Örebro, Sweden, have managed to shape a palette of blues-based rock with heavy, fuzzy elements. The result is a full-length album called “Dancing Madly Backwards” and recollects the tunes of GRAVEYARD, WITCHCRAFT, MOUNTAIN and LEAF HOUND. CAPTAIN CRIMSON also features Stefan Norén from BLOWBACK, who released “800 Miles” on Transubstans in 2010. As the band says: “We guarantee you that this album makes you swing your head to the beat of the music and fill you with euphoria that many bands lack.” No more needs to be said.

DUALISM

Band:TEXTURES

The fourth album of TEXTURES will be released on exclusive vinyl via Redfield Records. Handnumbered, circle cut on front and back of outersleeve, matte varnish, innersleeve printed inside-out, coloured vinyl (250 red, 252 blue). CD of “Dualism” was released by Nuclear Blast!

"The band’s fourth album Dualism is groovier, catchier, and the production even grander than its 2008 predecessor Silhouettes. The band’s trademark mix of expertly crafted brutality, melody, freaky, innovative rhythms and catchy vocals is still intact, with Bart Hennephof and Jochem Jacobs’s expertly crafted sonic… um… textures and the unruly heavy-hitting of drummer Stef Broks creating the perfect metal cocktail. The climaxes of the songs on Dualism have been elevated to a higher level, partially due to the contribution of their new keyboard player Uri Dijk and new frontman Daniel de Jongh (ex-Cilice) who, as far as his sound goes, is every bit the talent as his predecessor Eric Kalsbeek"

 

 

OF LOSING INTEREST

Band:FEN
Album:OF LOSING INTEREST
Label:RIPPLE MUSIC
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

A withdrawal of services from the most basic human interactions; an exhausted lament peaked with delirium. Following up the critically-acclaimed Trails Out of Gloom, Vancouver's Fen presents Of Losing Interest, an album that revisits the band's harder edged metallic past while retaining the melodic sensibilities that made Trails so alluring. Co-Produced by Mike Southworth, his fourth with the band, Of Losing Interest is a contrast of technical virtuosity layered against warm low end organics.

“Fen is an alternative/heavy metal band that often veers into progressive rock territories likening them to the sounds of Porcupine Tree and Opeth. Unlike countless other bands in the same genre, Fen manages to always stay centered, never losing themselves to moments of self-indulgence or falling victim to being overly obscure.” -- Imagine Echoes

 

 

HALLUCINATING IN RESURRECTURE

Band:BINAH
Album:HALLUCINATING IN RESURRECTURE
Label:DARK DESCENT
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Despite none of the band’s members being newcomers to underground Metal, the entity that is Binah has spawned what’s certain to be remembered as one of this year’s weightiest and hungriest-sounding full-length recordings. Spanning ten tracks of morbid-sounding death, “Hallucinaing in Resurrecture” captures the UK trio's concoction of obscure and primordial sounds; one that makes no secret of their Finnish, Dutch and Swedish (even some U.S. via Autopsy and Morbid Angel) prime inspirations yet oozes a dense ambiance that's distinctly their own. Whether exploring fast and serpentine sections or sparser and more reflective passages; this beast remains unrestrained in its intensity. Focusing on its song-craft and otherworldly in its vibes; familiar yet eerie, “Hallucinating…” is pure death.

But Oliver Onions are only one of the possible references on this album: the best season funky is there, from Kool and the Gang to Earth wind and fire.

Good rhythm section-very clean and efficient battery-studied guitar riffs, beautiful woodwinds Brunetta Alexander, whose grafts is really the value added of the album.

She created the painting „Dark Days“ while listening to the tunes of Sula Bassana, and that painting influenced him again while creating those songs... Kind of spezial symbiosis.

JUST ONE NIGHT

Band:BAD NEWS REUNION
Album:JUST ONE NIGHT
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

The recording of “Just One Night” happened 1997 in the “living room” of BAD NEWS REUNION, the Hamburger Fabrik and has been published in the same year under Line Records, same as all other recordings of the band. Also with this concert the band stuck true to their style. An exciting gig, which entertains and makes fun. The singing voices of Wallenstein, Schlüter, and Brückner couldn’t be more different but dispite of that they fit perfectly to the whole picture of this great band. The fact that Abi Wallenstein is one of the versed german guitar players, with lots of awards, is known to nearly everybody. A perfect album by a perfect band, which added to the publishing of “Just One Night” also a bonus track of the same concert. For the first time you can listen to their interpretation of the Bob Dylan classic song “Like A Rolling Stone” on a BAD NEWS REUNION sound carrier.

SATAN ALPHA OMEGA

Band:DEIPHAGO
Album:SATAN ALPHA OMEGA
Label:Hells Headbangers
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Experiencing DEIPHAGO is like diving into the mouth of hell. On their third LP, "Satan Alpha Omega," the Filipino power-trio open that maw even wider, swallowing whole the listener within their sulfurous storm. Heaving with horrific intensity, DEIPHAGO blast forth with nine hateful hymns bursting with vortextural riffing, mind-melted solos, decimated (and decimating) drums, and poisonous tongues exalting the devil in all his forms. If their previous two albums redefined black metalled violence, "Satan Alpha Omega" shall wipe the slate clean!

Album:RAB 11
Label:Hells Headbangers
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

After polluting minds and corrupting souls with their self-titled debut album, THE ROYAL ARCH BLASPHEME return to wage war on the holy with the cryptic "II." Once again the vision of PROFANATICA guitarist/songwriter John Gelso and KRIEG mastermind N. Imperial but now expanded into a full lineup, THE ROYAL ARCH BLASPHEME's highly anticipated "II" expands upon ideas from their original template: the primitivism is cruder, the sludge more volcanic, the blasphemy more vile, the production fuller and more devastating. What results is sickened (and sickening) miasma of black metal filth that only THE ROYAL ARCH BLASPHEME can create... bow down in obeisance.

Performed by prominent USBM members Neill Jameson (Krieg), John Gelso (Profanatica), Alex Cox (Demoncy)!

What the band presents here is not only top-notch musicianship, but most of all very classic and solid songwriting without any modern experiments.

This perfectly balanced blend of power and thrash metal in the best US tradition should appeal to all fans of METAL CHURCH, REVEREND, WAYNE, old METALLICA, MELIAH RAGE and ARMORED SAINT, but influences from BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST and MOTORHEAD are quite clear too.
