SIGNALS - DELUXE EDITION

Band:MALLORY KNOX
Album:SIGNALS - DELUXE EDITION
Label:A Wolf At Your Door Records
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Mallory Knox are undoubtedly one of the UK’s most exciting new prospects. The release of the singles ‘Death Rattle’ & ‘Wake Up’, ‘Lighthouse’, ‘Beggars’ & ‘Hello’ has seemingly witnessed Mallory Knox ascend from ‘local hero’ status to burgeoning leaders of the UK Rock revival following the release of the highly anticipated debut album Signals on January 21st 2013 . (Rock Sound 9/10, Big Cheese 4/5)

Following the release of ‘Signals’ Mallory Knox charted at No.33 in the UK’s official top 40 Album Chart, and went straight to No.1 on the Official iTunes Rock Charts, receiving back to back radio play for an extensive period from respected BBC Radio 1 DJs such as Nick Grimshaw, Zane Lowe, Fearne Cotton & Daniel P. Carter which subsequently lead to Mallory Knox being nominated for ‘Best British Newcomer’ at this year’s Kerrang Awards.

Mallory Knox recorded the eagerly awaited debut album ‘Signals’ with Dan Lancaster at Studio GlassEye (Lower Than Atlantis, Don Broco). ‘Signals’ delivers 11 blistering & immaculate anthemic rock hits, which are as diverse as they are powerful. The deluxe edition offers five blistering bonus tracks Maps, Lights, Oceans, Resuscitate (Acoustic) & Lighthouse (Live In Cambridge) as a welcomed addition to the glowing debut which has been left resonating through the ears of rock fans both young and old since the original release. ‘Signals’ deluxe edition showcases Mallory Knox musicianship to the highest order as they showcase a maturity beyond their years.

For a relatively young band, Mallory Knox conveys their instantly recognisable sound with perfection & conviction throughout. With Mallory Knox being confirmed for a host of festivals this year including Warped Tour (Australia) T In The Park, Boardmasters & the opening slot on the main stage at this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals, coupled with the release of the ‘Signals’ deluxe edition this autumn on A Wolf At Your Door Records, Mallory Knox are primed to lead the new generation of British Rock music in 2013& beyond.

 

 

OBSIAN

Band:CASTEVET
Album:OBSIAN
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Ever since their debut full-length “Mounds Of Ash” was released in 2010, New York’s CASTEVET have defined themselves as one of the most invigorating, unique, and musically advanced bands in the underground extreme metal scene. Emerging from a scene alongside bands such as Krallice, Liturgy, and Tombs, CASTEVET’s sound is unlike any of their contemporaries.

With a sound culminated from influences that CASTEVET (who now feature Krallice bass player/vocalist Nicholas McMaster amongst the band’s ranks) incorporate into their composition, influences that range from avant-garde dissonant black metal (Ved Buens Ende, Deathspell Omega), neo-classical, jazz, and progressive metal, CASTEVET, who sometimes get grouped within the U.S. black metal movement, are a band that defies categorization.

With their new album “Obsian”, CASTEVET have taken their songwriting skill-level beyond their acclaimed “Mounds Of Ash” debut. With a more dense, complex, and demented sound picture, “Obsian” sees the CASTEVET trio take their artistry and musical fortitude much beyond what any of their contemporaries in the U.S. black/extreme metal scene could accomplish.

For fans of Krallice, Altar Of Plagues, Negative Plane, Deathspell Omega, and Ved Buens Ende, and Tombs.

 

 

BEELZEFUZZ

Band:BEELZEFUZZ
Album:BEELZEFUZZ
Label:THE CHURCH WITHIN
Format:CD
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.

MASS GRAVE

Band:THE MARTHAS VINEYARD FERRIES
Album:MASS GRAVE
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Post Punk

The Martha’s Vineyard Ferries is a rock band featuring Elisha Wiesner (Kahoots) on guitar, Bob Weston (Shellac, Volcano Suns, Mission of Burma) on bass guitar, and Chris Brokaw (Come, Codeine, The New Year) on drums. Their new record, Mass. Grave will be released on October 14, 2013 on Africantape. The band – and more specifically, the band name - began as a kind of gag between friends. “Elisha and I were just hanging around talking about having a band and we were coming up with ridiculous names,” Weston said. “At first, I don’t think we really thought it would happen. But after awhile we were like, ‘Hey, should we really do this?’ Who would be the drummer?’ and Elisha immediately said, ‘Brokaw’.”

What began as a hypothetical joke between friends, quickly resulted in some pretty incredible actual music in the form of their debut EP In The Pond (2010, Sick Room Records). As one might expect, you can hear elements of all the other bands Chris, Bob and Elisha are involved in, but ultimately, the Ferries’ music is truly its own thing.

On Mass. Grave, the trio has developed its sound even further - though it's a sound that might be a bit hard to describe. “I think I said something like Minor Threat crossed with ‘Eight Miles High’ by The Byrds,“ Wiesner said. “But of course we sound nothing like that. Our “sound” just happens to be what it sounds like when we all play together.”

THE BIG HUNT

Band:THE LONESOME SOUTHERN COMFORT COMPANY
Album:THE BIG HUNT
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

The Lonesome Southern Comfort Company was founded in 2006 as solo-project of John Robbiani (guitar, vocals and history enthusiast). The solo part became less lonesome when John decided to rent a studio, gather some friends and label-mates (including Peter Kernel, Lake Nation and Far from the Madding Crowd) and hit rec. Giving birth to the first self-titled album “Lonesome Southern Comfort Company” (published in August 2008, On The Camper Records). A country-folk rush just in time for a political “outing” a couple of months before the 2008 U.S. elections. Afterwhich, as all structures take form, LSCC completed itself with the arrival of Duke (drums), Abraham (guitar) and Boris (viola).

In 2010 LSCC released “Charles The Bold” – a combination of alternative- americana- indie-rock and history. The album was inspired by Charles le Téméraire, duke of Burgundy and his battles against the Swiss in 1477 (sound cool? well it is.). With this album the band began touring Europe seriously and matured into an acid-psychedelic live performance.

Now, this Autumn: “The Big Hunt”. The release is scheduled for September 30th 2013 in Europe (October 30th 2013 in the UK). The new 9-track album is a combination of alternative-country folk with electronic influences. Loyal history traveling through the air with recorded memoirs and daring tales. LSCC will be touring “The Big Hunt” this fall across Europe (Spain, France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and in November they’ll hit the UK for the first time. Beware.

IHMINEN

Band:SEREMONIA
Album:IHMINEN
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Seremonia comes from Finland, plays heavy psychedelic rock and sings in their native language. Their eponymous debut album was released by Svart Records in 2012. Since then, the band has played their creepy brand of psych rock on very different venues, be it small punk rock dives or bigger festivals like Finland's Tuska, Denmark's Heavy Days in Doomtown or Holland's Roadburn.

On their sophomore album ihminen (finnish for human) the band both continues the primitive pounding of their eponymous debut and expands their trademark sound into more epic directions. Seremonia's influences still come from the most psyched out acid vinyls the 60's, 70's and 80's have to offer. On ihminen, the influence of old finnish punk and prog rock is more audible than before.The 2010's may have more than it's share of Black Sabbath -influenced retro rock bands, but Seremonia stands out from the crowd just by naturally sounding a few notches more creepy and weird than your average hippie doomsters.

 

 

VALONIELU

Band:ORANSSI PAZUZU
Album:VALONIELU
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Oranssi Pazuzu’s previous album “Kosmonument” was received with great critical acclaim as a brilliant album by a band developing into something all their own. On “Valonielu” the band has sharpened their songcraft into a more succinct and salient statement, formidably invoking 90s era Darkthrone, yet boldly reaching farther out into the multiverse of the Psych and ExperiMental side they have always inhabited. From the beginning chainsaw riff of album opener “Vino Verso” (“Askew Sprout”) to the climactic, world downfall of final track “Ympyra On Viiva Tomussa” (“A Circle Is A Line In The Dust”), O.P. masterfully establish a cosmology all their own. Oranssi Pazuzu breathe ascendent new life into an often stagnant present day Black Metal scene.

 

 

THE WHITE GODDESS

Band:ATLANTEAN KODEX
Album:THE WHITE GODDESS
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

German Underground Metal Titans ATLANTEAN KODEX have returned from obscurity to redefine Epic Metal with their long-awaited second album, titled „The White Goddess - A grammar of poetic myth“. The White Goddess‘ is a triumph of heaviness and melancholy, a monument to the spirit of underground metal and the mythology of old Europe.“, says drummer Weiss. „Our sound has grown darker and heavier, like the world has grown darker and heavier in the past few years. At the same time our 70s roots and our love for Bathory and old Manowar are still there. Imagine Quorthon jamming with Uriah Heep while ,Into Glory ride‘ is blasting from an old tapedeck“, adds guitar player Trummer.

Indeed the band has progressed much since their debut effort „The Golden Bough“. The sound is more mature, more dramatic, more bombastic. Everything on the album spells HUGE in capital letters. While the key coordinates old Manowar (Ross the Boss-era), Bathory (Twilight-era) and obscure US Metal (Fates Warning, Cirith Ungol, Warlord...) are still dominant, the band has manage to explore new ground with „The White Goddess“. This is one of the few albums, which will leave noone cold.

 

 

BEYOND THE MARTYRS

Band:ARGUS
Album:BEYOND THE MARTYRS
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

“Beyond the Martyrs”, ARGUS third full length album, starts where their 2011’s release “Boldly Stride the Doomed” had left us -at the Ruins of Ouroboros. In between these two releases ARGUS has tested its strength and valor with several live shows both in their homeland and in Europe, receiving high praises from fans and from the record industry. Although a sense of impending fate marks again their compositions, the characteristic doom metal elements which were a distinguished trademark of Argus’ past releases, have now mostly left place to a straight and genuine heavy metal approach, its nature rooted in the most classic environment of Heavy Metal tradition.

Argus' third album is sure to force metal heads everywhere to raise horn-crested fists to the sky. "Beyond the Martyrs" contains the hallmarks of their previous works - twin guitars, soaring vocals, and a driving rhythm section; it is heavy, melodic, epic, and brooding all at once. If you don't like this album, you don't like metal! After their successful shows at festivals such as Hammer of Doom in 2011 and Dublin Doom Days in 2012, the band will hit again the European soil with a proper tour in October 2013 in order to promote “Beyond the Martyrs”.

RED SKIES AND DEAD EYES

Band:TOMBSTONES
Album:RED SKIES AND DEAD EYES
Label:SOULSELLER
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Tombstones has been brewing on dirtier filth this time, and their new, third, studio album; “Red Skies and Dead Eyes” will tear holes in your ears and speakers. Norwegian doom has never been played with more confidence and style, and the riffs and grooves penetrate your soul like a demon from ancient times.

“Red Skies and Dead Eyes” gives you 44 minutes of blackened doom, and will leave you on your knees, crushed by a thundering roar arisen from the dark woods of Norway. During live recording‐sessions in May 2013, the norwegian doomsters paired up with the best from their past, and both Petter Svee from “Year of the Burial” and the US‐legend BIlly Anderson from “Volume II” were turning the knobs. To state the obvious, the sound on this slab of doom is earth‐shattering."

LIKE ELEPHANTS 1

Band:THE MOVEMENTS
Album:LIKE ELEPHANTS 1
Label:Crusher
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

The Movements, from Gothenburg, Sweden, has left the door to the garage rock half ajar behind and opened the gates to the great world of psychedelic rock. This fall they will release their new album, Like Elephants 1. Like Elephants 1 is a very exciting project because, as the title suggests, it is only the first disc of two (Like Elephants 2 is scheduled for release in early 2014). Working out two albums into a unique whole has been innovative, challenging and inspiring for The Movements. What is special about these two albums is that they not only stand strong individually but also create a whole, a kind of continuity, together. With these two volumes The Movements takes courageous distance from today's fast-food consumption of songs pulled out of their context and instead dare to demand a greater commitment by the listener who, in return, gets to experience something special taking the time listening through the entire albums.

Like Elephants 1 offers swirling psychedelia in Great Deceiver, catchy rock riffs with All The Lost and at moments leaning towards the folk rock with It Takes A Spark. The album consists of ten well-worked songs of high quality and has for the most part been recorded at Music A Matic in Gothenburg.

Crusher Records also released debut’s by HORISONT, SPIDERS, VIDUNDER & TROUBLED HORSE.

Pöngse - supported by Brigitte Grafe and guitarist Benjamin Peiser - knows to take this electronic soundtrack every cold and to create an incredibly groovy and trancy melange, reminiscent in some moments of Pink Floyd, but also wakes associations with Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Mike Oldfield and Schiller. Each title tells you in advance what it is and what musical elements are used. African, Oriental and rock rhythms, with organs, choirs, guitars - aplenty of synthesizers and sequencers. For mastering ex-Grobschnitt musician EROC was actually responsible. The result is a musical journey around the world through the digital sound world of the continents that is unparalleled! A fine and entertaining journey at all! The perfect mental cinema!

 

 

STAMPEDE

Band:KROKUS
Album:STAMPEDE
Label:SIREENA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Metal

For the very first time on 180 gram heavy-weight vinyl in a 2LP set! “Stampede” from 1990 by KROKUS, the most successful Swiss Rock band of all times!

When with Marc Storace, Chris von Rohr and Mark Kohler three long-standing members had left the Swiss metal band KROKUS, it was 1990 Fernando von Arb along with singer Peter Tanner, the two guitarists Many Maurer and Tony Castell and drummer Peter "Rabbitt" Haas to create a new KROKUS team. For this, the guitarist for years von Arb even moved to the four-string, wrote most of the songs and produced the album "Stampede" in the domestic Pink-Studio in Solothurn. And it worked unbelievably well, at least musically. The band made a real goal! "Stampede" meant a return of KROKUS to the times of their monster hit "Headhunter". Especially the title track but also anthems like "Rock'n'Roll Gypsy" or "Shotgun Boogie" came to be in the best band tradition.

An now -  “Stampede” by KROKUS for the first time on 180 gram vinyl.

The first edition of 500 copies comes - are on colored vinyl in gatefold cover. As a bonus you’ll find the Bachman-Turner-Overdrive-Cover “„You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet“ at the end of Side 4.

 

 

PIONEER LANE

Band:THE WATSON TWINS
Album:PIONEER LANE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

The Watson Twins bring their signature sibling harmonies to Pioneer Lane, a collection of original family folk songs. Combining their Indie-Rock sensibilities with positive pop lyrics, Pioneer Lane is a record for the whole family. Producer Russell Pollard, of the band Everest, creates a whimsical instrumental landscape which complements the songs and gives this record a unique sound. The sisters started singing at an early age and were inspired to contribute new songs to the ever growing genre of Children's Music. Friendship, family, nature and love resonate at the heart of this record from beginning to end.

Famed for backing Rilo Kiley , the Watson Twins have toured The UK several times & will tour again 2013-2014.

"Dark, angular and just under 6ft tall, Chandra and Leigh Watson create an impression before they have sung a note. Happily, the pair's striking, gospel-honed voices are also included in the package, making a Watson show - even one as brief and under-attended as this - something that stays in the memory." - The Guardian

 

 

TONK

Band:AUDREY AULD
Album:TONK
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Country

Some people say Nashville doesn't put out good country music anymore. Audrey Auld's Tonk album will prove them wrong. And how! Singing better than ever and released on her own Reckless Records imprint, Tonk is without doubt Audrey Auld's finest work to date. Audrey wears her love for old-school country on her sleeve. But this is no retro devotional. Audrey is a self-actualized woman singing out all her love, loneliness and laughter, with a fabulous band playing a swinging beat. This is country music the way it ought to feel. Produced by Kenny Vaughan & George Bradfute in Jim Reeves’ old studio with backing by (Marty Stuart’s) Fabulous Superlatives with Chris Scruggs, Andy Leftwich and Gary carter, Nashville veterans all playing live in the studio together without isolations booths, overdubbing or auto-tune. This lady is the real deal from the South---Southern Australia that is. 

" All in all TONK is a great album with my favourite artwork of the year so far and Audrey Auld’s voice and songwriting skills are talents to behold in a very shallow musical world." - No Depression

 

 

SWEET BERNADINE

Band:RICK SHEA
Album:SWEET BERNADINE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Rick Shea is a solo artist, guitarist and songwriter who’s known for his own albums and for his work with Dave Alvin and other notable artists. Sweet Bernardine , his 8th album, is a collection of Shea’s own stories and stories of California and beyond. The arrangements are spare and simple, based on acoustic guitar, accordion or mandolin, and drums, but he does pull out the telecaster on a few. The songs reflect the folk, country, rock and Mexican influences Shea grew up with, as he lets the songs find their own settings. “If I had to compare myself I would say that, when I was younger Merle Haggard cast a long shadow, but since then Dave Alvin, Jim Ringer and a lot of other music has found its way in.” 

Rick has toured Europe as a part of Dave Alvin’s band ‘Guilty Men’

 

 

SODOM AND GOMORRAH

Band:FROMUZ
Album:SODOM AND GOMORRAH
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

The amazing musicians from Uzbekistan are back with Sodom and Gomorrah, a concept CD that features the acclaimed original Fromus (formerly FROM.UZ) line-up. Sodom & Gomorrah was originally composed as the soundtrack for a theatrical musical production of the same name. Reinterpreting the Biblical tale of Sodom and Gomorrah as a conceptual foundation, it tells the story of our modern world, ravaged by global addictions and harmful vices that can only be remedied through a change from within the very heart of the human condition. This concept is conveyed through the well-established passion and incendiary musicianship that has become the hallmark of Fromuz. This is modern progressive rock at its very finest.

THE STARFOLK

Band:THE STARFOLK
Album:THE STARFOLK
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

The Starfolk makes melody-rich chamber pop music that rocks in front man Brian Tighe's quintessentially ethereal way. Tighe fronted indie-pop darlings The Hang Ups in the 90’s, and co-fronts bittersweet girl-boy poppers The Owls. In The Starfolk, Tighe is on guitar and lead vocals; joined by wife/collaborator Allison LaBonne (The Owls) on bass, Jacqueline Ultan on cello, and Stephen Ittner (The Hang Ups) on drums. Everyone sings. The sound of The Starfolk self-titled is palpably heavier than Tighe's back catalog. But the dirty guitar riffs and insistent rhythms are interspersed with angelic moments where Tighe unveils some of his most McCartney-esque melody writing; steeped in lush, eerie harmonies and elegant, economical arrangements. LaBonne contributes three songs that add dimension to the record; her urgent pulses and chilling vocals offering an exciting shift in perspective.

"The present iteration of Tighe's Anglophilia lands The Starfolk somewhere near the land of The Left Banke in the time of The Three O'Clock, and that's the kind of music that gets me all fired up with religious fervour." --The Big Takeover

 

 

BABY BEATLES

Band:CASPAR BABYPANTS
Album:BABY BEATLES
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Kids

Ladies and Gentlemen....THE BEATLES!...and the world was never the same. Caspar Babypants has put together an amazing collection of inventive simple covers of classic Beatles songs designed specifically for kids ages 0-6 and their parents. The songs have been pared down to their basic elements to let the melodies and lyrics come through clearly so that young brains can grab on to them easily and parents can enjoy the songs in a new way with their kids. There are classics like All Together Now, Yellow Submarine and Octopus's Garden but also some less widely covered tunes like Anytime at All, Being For The Benefit of Mister Kite and I'm Only Sleeping. As with all Caspar albums the energy goes from active to sleepy to help engage their attention and then calm the kids down and lull them to sleep. BABY BEATLES! is a combination of that classic Beatles songwriting with that classic simple clear presentation of Caspar Babypants.

For fans of the Beatles and Presidents of The United States of America with kids...Chris Ballew (Potusa) is a twice Grammy nominated singer and songwriter...

XIN

Band:HYPO AND EDH
Album:XIN
Label:CHEAP SATANISM
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

EDH and Hypo are two french musicians who have both prolific solo careers since the beginning of the 2000's. Hypo & EDH are also a band, a duo, more precisely a two-headed monster that produces a unique, challenging music, which is pop and experimental at the same time, swinging and melancholic, electronic and organic. After returning to their own solo projects for a while, the duo reforms in 2013 to present “Xin”, their second opus together. Faithful to its principles, the band cultivates the confrontation between order and chaos, figurative and abstract, grotesque and melancholy, new wave and exotica, with a keen interest in strangeness.

“The Correct Use of Pets” has probably been one of my most replayed albums of the last decade. ” The Quietus

THE WOOD BEYOND THE WORLD

Band:THE FLOATING WORLD
Album:THE WOOD BEYOND THE WORLD
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

The Japanese term ‘ukiyo,’ translated as ‘the floating world,’ was used to describe the pleasure seeking urban culture of Edo Japan. When alternately rendered as ‘sorrowful world’ the term took on Buddhist connotations, indicating the transitory nature of human experience, the ephemerality of existence. These two seemingly opposed yet sympathetic concepts have always heavily informed the music of The Floating World and each album has been created with these as central themes. Named for a novel by William Morris, The Wood Beyond the World is The Floating World’s latest album and an attempt to capture the journey from the mundane to the illusory made by the novel’s protagonist – a journey that reflects the hunt for the temporal and intangible the band’s name intimates. With the addition of Neddal Ayad (guitar; Desolation Singers/Great Attractor) and Grey Malkin (drones, bells, piano; The Hare and the Moon), as full members who have brought additional nuance to the music, this ambition is more fully realized. Amanda’s delicate, melancholy flute parts now weave in and out of Neddal’s hazy guitar and Grey’s eerie and dissonant accompaniments – the whole underpinned by various rough field recordings used to compliment and counterpoint the music. Roy Felps (Korperschwache) also guests on the album, adding drifting acoustic guitar to a song. Amanda has also collaborated with Lacus Somniorum, New Rosen Throne, Far Black Furlong, Dodson and Fog, The Joy of Nature and The Hare and the Moon. She and Neddal have another band together, Secrets to the Sea, as well.

 

 

KALI YUGA

Band:VORTEX
Album:KALI YUGA
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

3rd full lenght album from Germany's Vortex. "During a long trip to India some years ago the idea grew to compose a whole album focussing on the darkest of the ages in Hindu mythology, the Iron Age or Kali Yuga. I instinctively felt that this would serve as a great metaphor for current crisis in the world, a time of corruption, decline and war. This concept also allowed me to dive even deeper into shamanistic ritual sounds than before and to create a multi-layered and transcultural musical metaphor. This album is more achaic, drum driven and spiritual than all things I created earlier. And I was happy enough to collaborate with talented people for this monumental effort, especially German ambient artist M. M. Ra. as well as the ambituous artcore-guitarist Patrick Kilian of the German post-punk-band Rome Asleep. ‘Kali Yuga’, a work in progress for three years, aims to go beyond the boundaries of apocalyptic ambience and may be seen as modern aural shamanism."

Label:cyclic law

Sixth release (and the first for Cyclic Law) of the Norwegian drone ambient project Taphephobia created by Ketil S (also of Mulm and ex-Northaunt.) As emphasized by its title, this record is intented to take one away from the mundane everyday world, it is not a concept album, rather an album where both the music and the titles are open for interpretation. The soudscapes lead to an inner experience where you can discover your own hidden voices and your own secret world of colours. An inner journey which stretches the imagination from terrifying seastorms to idyllic moments of wintery landscapes.

 

 

I CANNOT TELL YOU WHERE I AM

Band:MURMURISTS
Album:I CANNOT TELL YOU WHERE I AM
Label:ALREALON MUSIQUE
Format:CD
Genre:Avant-Garde

Two years in the making, ‘I Cannot Tell You Where I am Until I Love You’ is the first release on Alrealon by Anthony Donovan. Combining spoken word with scenes culled from an involved admix of musique concrete, electro-acoustic and industrial, the album takes the listener through a complex series of dissociated communications, where attempts at congress and connection are stymied by language itself, with all signs failing to signify. An alienated love story of sorts is voiced by protagonists Bryan Lewis Saunders, Michael Holloway, Pixyblink, Jaan Patterson and Jo Pearson; each being asked, during the initial creative process, to perform their characterisations in isolation, with no inkling of the final project. In similar fashion, Donovan invited improvisers like Stephen Flinn, Antonio de Braga, Zafer Aracagok and Adrian Beentjes to react to certain concepts, instructions and suggestions. The results of these experiments were added to Donovan’s own material, and worked into a single albumlength, thematic composition. Donovan is an artist, musician, composer, improviser and writer based in England. He works solo, either as Murmurists or under his own name, and is associated with projects such as Destroyevsky, Ou_pi Golgotha.undead, Ampersand, the.clinamen and Spidey Agutter. An ardent collaborator, he has worked with the likes of John Zorn, Jochen Arbeit, Geoff Leigh, PAS, Steve Beresford and Damo Suzuki. Donovan co-curates the respected labels Classwar Karaoke and suRRism-Phonoethics with Jaan Patterson. His interests are all either obscure or opaque, but morally authentic.

Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Ladies and gentlemen, it is finally here. Over twenty-two months after its initial release on CD through PROFOUND LORE RECORDS, New Jersey’s Death Metal monster DISMA debut full-length ‘Towards The Megalith’ is finally getting the vinyl treatment it’s been begging for since its inception, and boy, oh boy, was it worth the wait. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last three years or so, you should know that DISMA marks the grandiose return of vocalist extraordinaire Craig Pillard, whose cavernous rasping helped take INCANTATION’s ‘Onwards To Golgotha’ a notch above the rest into uncharted territory of pure darkness. Seeing him team up with two members of the mighty FUNEBRARUM, including vocalist / guitarist and mastermind Daryl Kahan in 2007, could only mean one thing: pure death-metal fury ahead! And indeed, ‘Towards’ turned out to be exactly the monster we all expected it to be; a devastating onslaught of down-tuned madness that, whenever verging on pure apocalyptic doom, can be almost suffocating in its approach. Such a masterpiece deserves only something special. Proof being that DISMA are here to stay and that ‘Towards The Megalith’ is already a classic whose deluxe LP version is no less than mandatory to ALL death-metal fans out there! LTD VINYL LP !

 

 

ELDIR NOTT

Band:FYRNASK
Album:ELDIR NOTT
Label:TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Clocking in a massive, time-evaporating 50 minutes, Eldir Nótt sees Fyrnask taking truer, freer flight than ever. The monument begins with cyclic, spiraling black metal of a shockingly gorgeous hue - sumptuous, even sensual - and yet retains the genre's core elements, that liberating fire and cleansing touch. But from there, Eldir Nótt wends and winds down both darker and daresay lighter corridors, as black metal proper is shed of its skin and the latent vibrations and textures so crucial to it are shaped into alternately dense/spacious soundscapes more in line with the ethno-ambient genre spearheaded by Dead Can Dance. Flickers of that fire take shape again and again, and motifs are revisited and reassembled, the sum effect being not unlike arcane afterimages reverberating across the cosmos and emerging upon the receptor different yet unchanged. And all along the path, there are means of escape, but "escape" not in the sense of freedom from conflict, unpleasantness, or whatever - rather, escape to wilder, weirder hinterlands of the imagination. 

“Eldir Nótt is a hugely ambitious, painstaking constructed album that succeeds brilliantly. Considering that it’s the work of one man, I’d go so far as to call it astonishing.” – No Clean Singing

Label:SQUID HAT
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

The Dirty Panties officially formed in 2001. Like most great ideas, the concept of The Dirty Panties was born at a New York bar in a drunken stupor and had a history even before it had instruments. After moving to Las Vegas, creating a solid local following and undergoing a few personnel changes, The Dirty Panties solidified their line-up with founding member guitarist Barb, lead singer Melanie, bassist Lil? Moe and drummer Animal. Through extensive touring throughout the Southwest states, The Dirty Panties have earned the reputation as a must see act and become iconic in the Las Vegas punk scene and beyond.

 

 

STOLEN FIRE

Band:CIVIL PROTECTION
Album:STOLEN FIRE
Label:BUNNYSNOT
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

After years of contemplation, Civil Protection decided to flesh out the skeleton of an idea that was ‘Stolen Fire’. Taking inspiration from the pain of losing a close family member, Civil Protection captured the morbid solemnity that looms in a situation like that without losing the energy of their personality. When the lyrics were taken to Civil Protection studio session that all the pieces fell into place and ‘Stolen Fire’ was born. Drums from Kenny Skey built urgency and a sense of tension, a euphoric bass line in its final moments from Phillip Birch, complex guitar riffs from Adam Fielding and a haunting tremolo lead from Nathan Bradely all came together to create ‘Stolen Fire’. In turn, the final version of ‘Stolen Fire’ inspired the sound that is now widely associated with Civil Protection which lead to the album being named after the track.

 

 

MAIZAN THAW

Band:ELIN KAVEN
Album:MAIZAN THAW
Label:NORDIC NOTES
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

Elin Kåven takes you on a journey to Sapmi, the land where the folklore spirits and mysticism are a part of everyday life. She belongs to the Sami people which are the nomad people north of the arctic circle. Being the grand-granddaughter of the most famous shaman in the icy tundra of Sapmi, she may have inherited some of his magical gifts.

"The album «Máizan-Thaw» shows my sami background from a new side, where the traditional, mythical and modern are mixed. Through this album my inner life as a sami girl in the city has manifested. The roots and longing for the nature is present, but at the same time I am drawn towards the urban. The ice in my debutalbum "Jiknon musihkka-Frozen music" (2009) is melting, and what is under the ice is exposed." – Elin Kåven

FUNERAL BITCH

Band:MASTER
Album:FUNERAL BITCH
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:LP
Genre:Death Metal

This is the story of an album that refuses to die, no matter what. This is the story of MASTER‘s doomed-from-the-start first attempt at recording a full-length… See, when the band (then already led by Paul Speckmann on bass and vocals and completed Chris Mittleburn on guitar and Bill Schmidt on drums) had signed with legendary US company COMBAT RECORDS on December 31st, 1984, the plan was to get into the studio asap in order to lay on tape whatever material the band had in store back then, including „Mangled Dehumanization“ and „Re-Entry and Destruction“ recorded with DEATHSTRIKE few months prior. Having recently lost his father, Speckmann vowed to invest all the money he got from the inheritance and the band locked themselves up in Seagrape studio. Alas, soon disagreements rose with COMBAT and in the middle of the session, their recording contract was cancelled, leaving them no choice but to abort the whole project after seven tracks had been recorded.

Although the result was never officially released until much later, rough mixes soon circulated through the tape-trading circuit, making a huge impression on many future big names of the genre, like Mick Harris from NAPALM DEATH, Bill Steer of CARCASS fame, Nicke Andersson from NIHILIST/ENTOMBED and so on. Even if most of those tracks were re-recorded five years later for MASTER‘s proper debut album, many fans still hold those original and raw versions as the ultimate MASTER recording. Regardless of the fact that these songs have been issued officially twice on CD - ten years ago by DISPLEASED RECORDS as ‚Unreleased Album‘ and earlier this year by VIC RECORDS, this time around they are being released under the new moniker ‚Unknown Soldier‘ with an exclusive cover done by Mark Riddick.

Audial signposts along the way include Swans, Autopsy, Diamanda Galas, Black Sabbath, and children's music as well as previous projects by the band personnel and contributors: Khanate, OLD, Ikeyard, & Burning Witch.
