MOBILE OF ANGELS

Band:WITCH MOUNTAIN
Album:MOBILE OF ANGELS
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

The new Witch Mountain album is their most epic and musically challenging album to date, darker and more brooding than any of its predecessors. With a cleaner and warmer sounding production (courtesy of legendary producer Billy Anderson, album tracked and mixed in Type Foundry studios Portland) yet still maintaining that massive heavy bluesy and melodic tone the band are known for. Lead singer Uta Plotkin delivers her best vocal performance yet.

“This is the third in our trilogy of comeback albums. It's the third with Uta Plotkin singing, and the third with Billy Anderson as producer. This one is the most fully developed, with the best sound and songs that we've yet mustered in our 17 years as a band. In many ways, it was also the easiest to make, because we've been working and touring so hard, the communication is flowing, and our close relationship with Billy keeps us from wasting time in the studio. Yes, we could have spent another week fine-tuning and mixing the album into the ground. But we didn't bother. Like all Witch Mountain albums, this one authentically captures where we were at when we made it. Since tracking this in May, we've toured Europe again and dialed the live presentation even further. We are firing on all cylinders. Side one of the new album will crush your skull, and Side two will make you want to slit your wrists. This is honest, heavy, American rock music that keeps one foot in the doom metal tradition, and another stepping beyond the fringe of genre and into the landscape of pure, emotional rock and roll expression. “ – Nate Carson/Witch Mountain

NIGHT OF THE HAMMER

Band:DAWNBRINGER
Album:NIGHT OF THE HAMMER
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Led by the one-man heavy metal machine Chris Black, whom many people have claimed as the savior of modernday heavy metal (and who should rightfully be considered the modern-day savior of heavy metal respectively), DAWNBRINGER has become a force in the more underground realms of true heavy metal over the last several years and several albums respectively (namely “Nucleus” and “Into The Lair Of The Sun God”, both released by Profound Lore Records). Now with the new DAWNBRINGER album “Night Of The Hammer” (which was recorded in Oakland’s legendary Sharkbite Studios) on the horizon, Chris Black is once again ready to remind us what the true spirit of heavy metal should really be all about.

In an age where the majority of real heavy metal coming out today has been laughable for the most part, DAWNBRINGER serves its purpose to restore faith in the masses that real heavy metal is still alive and well. No image, no false attitude, no posturing or posing, just pure heartfelt genuine heavy metal the way it should be, “Night Of The Hammer” is another glorious chapter in the DAWNBRINGER repertoire that will showcase Chris Black as one of heavy metal’s true visionaries today.

 

 

VENUS ARMATA

Band:MENACE RUINE
Album:VENUS ARMATA
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Industrial / Experimental

The duo that comprise Montreal, Quebec’s MENACE RUINE (S. De La Moth and Genevieve) have been known to create some of the most alluring and mesmerizing music within the experimental/ambient/noise scene. Their music is very enigmatic, seductive, pulsating and hypnotizing by mixing elements from industrial music, classic goth and darkwave, martial/militant ambient, noise, black metal, and neo-folk into a wondrous sonic amalgam that puts them within a niche all unto their own.

With the new album “Venus Armata”, MENACE RUINE continue to expand their sonic canvas even further by creating their most intriguing and alluring album to date. With Genevieve’s spellbinding incredible voice becoming even more of a focus this time, “Venus Armata” focuses more on a sense of melancholy and longing through its overbearing wall of pulsating layers of sound and synth heavy noise while not abandoning a sense of song structure and movement. In what will stand as one of the most mesmerizing albums in experimental/ambient music released this year, the overwhelming sonic journey known as “Venus Armata” will accordingly make its awareness made through its potential crossover.

TERRA 42

Band:LIRA DEL BACCANO
Album:TERRA 42
Label:Subsound Records
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

The project, originally formed as LOOSIN ’O’ FREQUENCIES (and released a mini CD produced by doom guru Paul Chain) was born from Alessandro ”Drughito” Santori and Roberto Malerba. In 2006 they decided to turn it into an instrumental band and call it L'IRA DEL BACCANO, melting doom influences as Black Sabbath with the 60’, 70’s psychedelia of Pink Floyd and Hawkwind, the heavy-prog vibes of bands like Rush, as well as the performing freedom and attitude of jam bands such as Grateful Dead. The result… long tracks, in constant evolution and movement on every concert. In summer '08 the band released it's first album – “Si non sedes is…Live”, 56 minutes of live performance in concert. They decided to let the album be available as a free download from their official site and very soon many reviews started to appear on the web. During the following two years they played many gigs in Italy, having the opportunity to share stages with bands like Nebula, Witchcraft, Doomraiser, Vibravoid and La Ira de Dios. In the spring of 2010 the band released a split CD with different version of songs already released on the first album, once again to show their way of conceiving music in "never ending movement". In the fall of 2013 L'IRA DEL BACCANO recorded the second album, no longer on stage as with the first album, but this time in a studio.....RIYL: Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, Rush,

 

 

COFFINS ON IO

Band:KAYO DOT
Album:COFFINS ON IO
Label:FLENSER
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

When it comes to Kayo Dot, change is the only constant. And like the best pop culture chameleons of the past, Kayo Dot’s evolution is governed by an inscrutable inner-logic. Despite the accessible songwriting of Coffins on Io and the emphasis on vocal melody and electronic percussion, Kayo Dot fans will find the record’s darkness and intensity familiar and relatable. For example: the dark wave of Coffins on Io album-track “Off-ramp Cycle” might be unrecognizable to Kayo Dot’s metal fans. “The sound is kind of like a sexy combination of Type O Negative, Peter Gabriel, Sisters of Mercy,” Driver says. But the track also encompasses the brooding menace of classic Bauhaus as well as current dark wavers Cold Cave and Crystal Stilts: artists young and old who live and die in those unknowable corners where heaviness meets delicacy and sincerity meets theatricality.

Elsewhere, Driver’s penchant for prog rock surfaces in the ethereal “Spirit Photography,” complete with a saxophone melody line—strikingly gentle when compared to Kayo Dot’s brutal back catalog. “Long Time Disturbance on the Miracle Mile” could be a Bryan Ferry-era Roxy Music cut, and “The Mortality of Doves” could be Eno-produced David Bowie.

Driver says there’s also an element of sexuality in Coffins on Io.“Basically the vibe that we’re going for here is inspired by 80s retro-future noir— Blade Runner,” Driver explains. “I wanted to make a good record to put on while you drive across the desert at night under a toxic, post-apocalyptic atmosphere,” he says, adding, “There’s a weird underlying theme of murder, shame and death.”

Hypnos plays heavy action boogie rock and is at this moment one of the fastest growing bands on the Swedish heavy rock scene. Never before in the history of Crusher Records has a band been signed to the label this quickly!

Hypnos was formed in late autumn 2013 and it only took a handful of shows of intense energy backed by a solid repertoire to get Crusher Records immediate attention. Shortly a deal was struck!

PERSONALLY YOURS ; THE COMPLETE ANTHOLOGY

Band:THE BOSSMEN
Album:PERSONALLY YOURS ; THE COMPLETE ANTHOLOGY
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Dick Wagner and his guitar. Lou Reed's "Rock 'n' Roll Animal". Alice Cooper's "Welcome to My Nightmare".... Wagner's contribution to rock 'n' roll is immense. And it all started a little bit north of Detroit with the Bossmen. In just three years (1964-67), The Bossmen amassed an impressive run of no less than eight regional number one singles. When you listen to these eighteen original compositions you can sense the long hours and the countless amount of blood, sweat and tears that went into creating them. Whether it's a stinging guitar solo (the sonic blast of an intro on 'Sunshine' comes to mind), a regal four part vocal harmony or a soaring arrangement, each tune bears the distinct early characteristics of the ‘Wagner’ sound that would later bring him success on a global scale and write him into the annals of rock ‘n' roll history.

Liner notes by Dick Wagner and reflections on the Bossmen by Bo White and Ryan Sparks.

Great Lion Productions package - Massive color booklet with rare photos - Limited to 500 copies.

Album:OLD MAN REVERB
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CDD

The Jigsaw Seen have more than lived up to expectations with their new masterwork, Old Man Reverb. The album is rich with musical ideas executed by the band in an impeccable manner. From intricate orchestral arrangements to primal rock, The Jigsaw Seen seamlessly combine diverse elements that support the album’s themes of nature and music. Soaring Mellotrons embrace husky baritone guitar figures, while glammy guitars and ornamental piano runs support a Vocoder laugh track. The dynamic foursome of Dennis Davison, Jonathan Lea, Tom Currier and Teddy Freese always know just what the song requires. Echoes of Ennio Morricone, Jimmy Webb, The Stooges and Gene Clark careen through the caverns of Old Man Reverb. The songs have multiple layers and meanings and The Jigsaw Seen have many moods. This is the band at its peak of creativity, brace yourself for the reverberations.

...The Jigsaw Seen’s previous releases, Gifted (2012), Winterland (2011) and Bananas Foster (2010) have received great reviews from UNCUT (UK), The Sunday Times (UK), The Independent (UK), The Daily Mirror (UK) etc...

TOP SOUL - LP

Band:FUSION
Album:TOP SOUL - LP
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

Impossible to find jazz/soul/funk monster by Fusión, issued in Chile in 1975 by ALBA (ALD-041)—a fulsome combination of funk, electric jazz, and soul, with Latin roots. Bassist Enrique Luna had lived and studied art in New York, and knew first-hand the last, avant-garde years of John Coltrane, and Miles Davis’ mutation from hard bop trendsetter into an electric jazz pioneer; Matias Pizarro had appeared on the scene in the mid-60s as a young pianist of outstanding technical ability and advanced ideas. Together they formed a band around a core of Peruvian musicians, with soloists including David Estánovich (tenor sax) and Lautaro Rosas (guitar), plus a rhythm trio of Mario Lecaros (electric piano, former Village Trio), and Orlando Avendaño (drums), with guest appearances by trumpeter Daniel Lencina, and young percussionist Santiago Salas (Santa y su gente). Censorship during the Chilean military regime meant heavy restrictions on artists. Thus the Fusión album was pressed in a very limited quantity, and never legally re-issued—until now! 180 gram limited edition of 500 copies. Bi-lingual insert explores Fusión in the context of the rich Chilean music scene

Rare private press jazz/space rock album, on reissue wish lists for years -

Limited edition of 500 copies WORLDWIDE

Booklet comes with notes from the band - The mini LP sleeve CD edition has five non-LP bonus tracks!

"This masterpiece crawled up my spine like a kundalini snake and proceeded to take the top of my head off. Probe 10 are unquestionably linked to a very specifically American form of proto-prog-into-jazz-rock synthesis of the precise sort Elektra Records used to specialize in, from Tim Buckley's Starsailor to David Stoughton's Transformer. Toss in trumpet fanfare laden acid psych straight out of the C.A. Quintet songbook, the riotously melodic and dense brassy arrangements of McLuhan... and...well...hold on to your hookahs!" —Mutant Sounds

Label:SEE MONKEY DO MONKEY

C`MON TIGRE

Band:C`MON TIGRE
Album:C`MON TIGRE
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Avant-Garde

After releasing the amazing music film Federation Tunisienne de Football in collaboration with the international artist G.Toccafondo in June 2014, C’mon Tigre will finally release their first album (Self Titled) on October 13 2014! The name Afroamericans gave to this dirty style of music was funk in reference to the body odour produced while in a state of excitation. That’s what we do, repetitive riffs and a maximalist attitude in a mosaic of arabic melodies, analogue drum machines, sinuous guitars, with a bombastic horn sections that could make snakes dance. The album includes 13 tracks, composed and produced by the duo C'mon Tigre and arranged together with its extended family, a great cluster of musicians from all over the world: Jessica Lurie, Henkjaap Beeuwkes, Pasquale Mirra, Ahmad Oumar, Enrico Fontanelli, Danny Ray Barragan, Eusebio Martinelli, Dipak Raji, Rocco Favi, Paolo Berluti, Malik Ousmane and Simone Sabini. More than two years of recordings, with a constant change of longitude and latitude. We have travelled far. We have met musicians with great souls and worked together with them on these 13 tracks. A group of people mutually contaminated sharing their musical memories. C’mon Tigre began life in the Mediterranean basin and spread out to the corners of the world's metropolises. C’mon Tigre talks about the fascination that Africa holds in a tales that stretch along a curve line from San Diego to Bombay. That's the reason why we choose not to sign this project with our birth names, because C’mon Tigre represents the single artistic voice which keeps those memories. Where do we come from, who are we similar to? that is not relevant. There’s not one single place, there are many places. There’s not one single face, there are many faces. C’mon Tigre are two people but at the same time is a collective of souls. This condition will change constantly, on stages, in the next recordings sessions and also in all those areas that are not strictly related to music. C’mon Tigre will invest in artistic research continuing his collaborations with animators, illustrators, visual artists like the successful experiment made with Mr. Toccafondo. More it will change, the more it will grow.

 

 

HER DAWN WARDROBE

Band:SKY PICNIC
Album:HER DAWN WARDROBE
Label:MEGA DODO
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

Sky Picnic is a psychedelic rock band from Brooklyn, New York. Consisting of Chris Sherman (guitar/vocals), Leah Cinnamon (bass/vocals) and Pete Meriwether (drums), their debut record was released in 2011 on Nasoni Records. Sky Picnic became part of the Fruits De Mer Records family soon after this, most notably contributing a track to "Sorrow's Children", which was produced in collaboration with psych-rock legends the Pretty Things. In 2014 the band signed to Mega Dodo who is releasing their third long-player.

"Her Dawn Wardrobe" is the stunning new album from New York’s psychedelic darlings Sky Picnic. The band’s third, their first from Mega Dodo, its gentle pastoral psych vibes have a distinct 60s influence but they are by no means a retro act. The album is packed with delicate ballads, solid rockers and lots of cool freaky and often spaced out psychedelic music. For their third album Sky Picnic has begun to introduce elements that blur musical genres, specifically songs tinged with jazz grooves, sing-along psych-pop and heavier riffs that only hint at what the future holds. CD.

Having self-released their 1st single, they now have another single and album under their belts, all of which works up to the monstrous monophonic 2-sided killer about to be unleashed by State Records.

The VU meters on the 8-track were begging for mercy that fine day back in June at the Ponswood Hit Factory, Hastings, as Lasse, David, Jesper and Sune pounded their way through the 2 sides on offer. The topside, "I'll Call Your Bluff", features Lasse's throat-shredding vocal and Jesper on 'set-to-stun' guitar, alongside the solid rhythm pumped out by David and Sune. David takes a double-tracked lead vocal on the flip, "You've Done Me Wrong", powered by a wonderful 'inside-out' syncopated guitar riff and that same gut-busting rhythm! No noise merchants, these boys though—everything's wrapped in a nice grasp of melody, making both sides instantly accessible; as I said at the start, it's time to LISTEN UP!

A “State” Production, recorded in mono at our 100% analogue 8-track studio - Limited to 500 copies on 7” vinyl with authentic push-out centre.

 

 

BEIGE

Band:THE SCENES
Album:BEIGE
Label:SOUND OF FINLAND
Format:CD
Genre:Post Punk

An experimental band barely out of their teens, The Scenes out of Oulu, Northern Finland, are something between art pop, hardcore punk and progressive rock. They possess a seemingly peculiar collective character yet it’s impossible to deny their powerful songwriting and showmanship mastery.

In May 2014 The Scenes toured the UK earning a reputation for their lights-out mayhem live performances, playing festival slots at The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Live At Leeds and Dot to Dot festival, as well as supporting Bo Ningen on their club tour. Their sets ebb and flow with startling neurotic bursts, to the point where it’s almost certain that something will break - be it equipment or bones. After their debut album "Images Of Animals Crying In Public" in April 2013, second album “Beige” comes out October 27th on the Sound of Finland imprint.

OLD SPARKY

Band:HEAT
Album:OLD SPARKY
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

It’s getting hot! The four-piece Heat from Berlin manages to revive the sound of the good old times. The members of this band project previously played in bands like Samsara Blues Experiment, Grandloom and the Hara-Kee-Rees. Their mutual love for the original Hard Rock and Proto Metal of the 70s made them form the band. Their debut will not only bring joy to fans of the genre, no also fans of modern retro bands like Graveyard, Horisont or The Graviators will love this record.

This is the TCM Vinyl LP Repress of Heat's Debut “Old Sparky” previously released on Electric Magic.

“An energetic Blues-drenched mixture of early Sabbath, Zeppelin, Jerusalem, whatever… Pull a name from your Classic Hard Rock collection, they have it all. The real deal....Heat are more than able to match up to the likes of Witchcraft and Graveyard.” - www.thesleepingshaman.com

LET THE GHOSTS SING

Band:AL`TARBA
Album:LET THE GHOSTS SING
Label:JARRING EFFECTS
Format:CD
Genre:Rap/Hip Hop

With a 10-year career, 5 albums and 2 EPs, many featuring, Al’Tarba is not a beginner anymore.

Mighty flying abstract hip-hop in the vein of RJD2 or DJ Shadow.

Far from the beatmaker under influences, Al'Tarba devotes himself to be a solo artist claiming the complexity and abandoning the label of "purist" too often related to punk or hip-hop. He is the creator of a whimsical, grandiose, sometimes ridiculous world where cartoons, genre films, comics gore, beautiful ladies and gangsters meet. In his world childhood‘s candor converges with violence and the adulthood’s ill-being. The real world becomes a dreamlike vision with the track Let the Ghosts Sing. Conductor of a joyfully funeral ball, Al’Tarba is playing with piano, glockenspiel and guitar or trumpet organic sounds echo’s back by abstract beats and electro patch. The album is filled with voices like a ghost whispering in our ears. Vaporous, the sampled voices never truly reveal themselves, and we’re not even sure if we heard them in the first place. At other times, the ghost take human form with the Tsigane singer Paloma Pradal from Bonnie Li Jessica Fitoussi or the reggae girl Dantisa. Let the Ghosts Sing could be the soundtrack for a Tim Burton movie, as we feel joy surrounded by death. Siberian Vengeance or Still Insomniac take us to a trip inside our own mind when Gangster & Rude Girls or My Vicious Side work as a carthasis, as we headbang our troubles away. That’s the strength of Al’Tarba and this opus, they bring us to an imaginary place where we face the nostalgia and spookiness of our childhood, while enjoying it as an adult.

MAUSOLEUM GATE

Band:MAUSOLEUM GATE
Album:MAUSOLEUM GATE
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The self-titled debut release of Finland’s MAUSOLEUM GATE is destined to become a classic cult album in a very short time. Rarely in the past few years any metal scene's newcomer has been able to craft such authentically sounding, classic heavy metal music with the passion and energy that MAUSOLEUM GATE put into their debut album. Their appearance on the scene out-of-nowhere came so unexpectedly and shockingly, but immediately turned some heads, as the band has been invited to play the next edition of famous German "Keep It True Festival" in April 2015! Inspired by the late 70s / early 80s metal sound, these Finnish lads know perfectly where to hit to provoke the most positive reactions among fans of the NWOBHM’s sound, die-hard aficionados of the twisting sounds of Cirith Ungol, and lovers of 70s rock greats such as the Scorpions and Uriah Heep... The presence of unusual keys (Mellotron and Organ mainly) gives this album a spooky and somewhat tragic atmosphere, with long suites such as “Lost Beyond the Sun” and “Mausoleum Gate” act as the highest peaks of an opera prima that will hardly pass unobserved.

Band:CONVENT GUILT
Album:GUNS FOR HIRE - LP
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Metal

Featuring veterans of the Aussie metal scene, CONVENT GUILT is a relatively new name - destined to conquer the heart and soul of any fan devoted to the early 80s metal sound.

Australia is the country where the most pure and uncontaminated metal sound reside, untouched by any fashion- or mainstream turn metal could have taken in these years. Raw, dirty yet terribly catchy guitar riffs (some even hinting at early AC/DC!) will carry you back to the golden age of metal, song title such as “Angels in Black Leather”, “Desert Brat” or “Perverse Altar” tell more of what you will get in this album than any word… Filthy vocals and a massive rhythmic section finally produce an overdose of muddy rock and roll that will find its best expression during their savage live shows. This is an album that smells of dust, sweat and energy - basically what metal is made of!

In addition to originals by Abrahams there are covers of songs by Doc Pomus and Dr John (The Victim) and Alexis Korner (I Wonder Who), the latter one of a pair of live tracks reuniting Abrahams with his former bandmates Clive Bunker and Andy Pyle. A great studio album from the man. The title track, Lies, and Deadman's Hill are still part of Mick's live shows today. Some excellent guitar work from Mick once again, and some fine songs.

Band:DON CORNELL / EDDY MCDONALD
Album:IM YOURS / WHEN IM CALLING YOU
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!

Don Cornell – I’m Yours - Born Luigi Francisco Varlaro in 1919, Don Cornell was one of the most successful of the crooners who commanded so much attention from the media during the 1950s. His warm and often sentiment-tinged tones put him in league with Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Ed Ames, Eddie Fisher,Al Martino, Vic Damone, Robert Goulet, and Steve Lawrence.

Eddy/McDonald – When I’m Calling You – Commonly listed under her name because she gets first billing, When I'm Calling You is a collection of 22 songs sung by soprano Jeanette MacDonald (1903-1965), eight by baritone Nelson Eddy (1901-1967), and five duets (tracks one, two, six, sixteen and seventeen) which is perhaps less than those who take the album title literally would expect. Stars of stage and screen, both singers were operatically inclined. This is charmingly nostalgic stuff, much of it sentimental and precious beyond belief.

Band:ROBERT CALVERT
Album:BLUEPRINTS FROM THE CELLAR / HYPE

Format:CD
Genre:Rock

TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!

Blueprints From The Cellar & Live At Queen Elizabeth Hall - Many fans of Calvert and the general Hawkwind-related music scene were unaware of these two cassette releases, as promotion was by word of mouth only. Ah, the days before the World Wide Web. Many of the tracks also appeared on his albums Test Tube Conceived and Freq, and many were performed on the live portion of this release: At The Queen Elizabeth Hall. This performance was recorded live in October 1986; it was originally released on vinyl, but sadly in very limited quantities and again sadly - since it was his first live album - after his premature death.

Hype – The highly accessible Hype album was the third of five solo albums. Originally released in 1982, it consists of the Songs of Tom Mahler - Mahler being the fictional rock star whose turbulent but somewhat jaunty story was earlier told in a Calvert novel, also called Hype. It's the quirky zone where art prog and intellectual punk meet - and they're not so unlikely bedfellows as one might have thought. Hype is often considered by his fans to be Robert Calvert's best album, in terms of song composition and production. Although the album could be described as mainstream, the lyrics lift it onto a rather different plane. The overall style is that of rock-pop songs - some of which are decidedly catchy - rather than any traditional rock arrangements with instrumental passages.

SUMMONING DELIVERANCE

Band:HORN OF THE RHINO
Album:SUMMONING DELIVERANCE
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Once again, HORN OF THE RHINO and DOOMENTIA are a pair that has come a long way together. Ever since their 2010 ‘Weight of the Coronation’, ‘Summoning Deliverance’ is their fourth collaboration, including the re-release last year of ‘Breed of the Chosen’ their very first proper recording originally issued as RHINO back in 2007. The trio might have entered their tenth year as a band but they’re still growing and this is, by far, their most adventurous and ambitious work yet. Here, their quite unique mix of sludge, grunge and thrash takes here a whole new dimension. Javier Galvez soulful voice may still be their biggest asset but on ‘Summoning Deliverance’, they’ve proving that although they’re still heavy-as-fuck, they’ve got any tricks up their sleeve. If sometimes they plough headstrong into the nearest wall, they also like to suggest in a very subtle yet menacing way that that even darker clouds are ahead.

 

 

NIGHTMARE

Band:SATANIKA
Album:NIGHTMARE
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:LP VINYL
Genre:Death Metal

One could say that DOOMENTIA is no stranger to that rotten and 80’s infested genre known as black/thrash as in the past, the label has been associated with such vile acts as BUNKER 66, TANGORODRIM or HATRED. What they all had in common was their unquenchable thirst for a primitive and true-to-the-roots form of metal and not its watered down so-called modern version. So in a way, SATANIKA fits right in, especially with the impressive pedigree of those Romabased veterans that have been serving the cause with MASSEMORD, VESPER and HANDFUL OF HATE among (many) others. But what really triggered this new collaboration whose first aftermath is this classy gatefold LP version of their latest album, released last January on CD by IRON SHIELD RECORDS, is how ‘Nightmare’ manages to build a bridge between the two schools. Extremely powerful-sounding, it mixes mid-period KREATOR or DESTRUCTION ‘s cruelty with the more up-to-date but as lethal sound of later bands like WARBRINGER. This being said, those warriors haven’t forget to remain faithful to the sound of yore and as a tribute to their elders, they’ve included exclusively for this version a ripping cover of NOCTURNAL BREED’s “Screaming For A Leather Bitch”. And they don’t rest on their laurels either by simply rehashing the same old ‘Pleasure to Kill’ riff over again and again.

 

 

INVICTUS ET AETERNUS - LP

Band:ORDO INFERUS
Album:INVICTUS ET AETERNUS - LP
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Death Metal

Exactly one year ago, on the strength of their three tracks debut EP alone and despite being spread over two different countries, ORDO INFERUS proved that the whole ‘super-group’ thing wasn’t a word without substance. In fact, in only twelve minutes, they annihilated most of the competition with their own style of death metal originating from the golden era when it was all about heavy and catchy riffing in the service of actual proper songs and not a wanking fest at the speed of light. Twelve months later, some may have left the building (Daryl Kahan from DISMA and FUNEBRARUM and former NECROPHOBIC Martin Halfan) and others have replaced them (like former NIFELHEIM and current BLACK TRIP axeman Sebastian Ramstedt), guitarist Hempa Brynolfsson and drummer Janne Björkenfjäll are still fueling the machine but as a band, they are stronger than ever. As a matter of fact the, now 100% Swedish, cohort is about to unleash hell with their debut full-length called ‘Invictus et Aeternus’. With music rooted in classic death metal and none of the members forgotten that good old songwriting will always win over a pile of riffs on the top of each other together with senseless brutality, ORDO INFERUS redefines the word ‘epic’ with this annihilating collection of twelve tracks (nine songs and three instrumentals).

Formed in 2000 by Roberto Lizárraga, INFINITUM OBSCURE has always been the odd man in the crowd. A rarity on stage (in fourteen years, they've toured the US only twice and Europe once), they always believed that less is more and that should strive to forge its own path, no matter how long it'd take. Often too quickly described as a mix between their country fellowmen THE CHASM intense dark-metal and WATAIN mystical stance, they simply sound like no-one but themselves and each album of theirs has left the rest of the scene behind eating dust and getting stuck in the mud.

After four LP releases with BLOOD HARVEST, DOOMENTIA is extremely proud to be working with one of Mexico's most original and singular acts - Fans of Venom, Celtic Frost, Discharge take note !!!

WHEN BEST FRIENDS BECOME STARNGERS

Band:FIRST STEP TO FAILURE
Album:WHEN BEST FRIENDS BECOME STARNGERS
Label:COLDWAR
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Eschewing the traditional process of writing records, releasing them, touring and gaining press acclaim, First Step to Failure have spent years in the Glasgow scene simply honing their craft and building a fan base, but all of that is about to change.

Channelling the likes of tech punk and skate punk bands such as Belevdere, Strung Out, A Wilhelm Scream and No Use for a Name, First Step to Failure play the kind of skate punk that you might like if you were a skateboarder in 1998. This is not to thei detriment however, because frankly as drastically “uncool” as their skate sound might be, there are few bands in Britain right now who play with the conviction, passion and sheer frenetic technically ability as these boys do. A quality update to the classic Fat Wreck sound of the mid-90s. Expect big things from this, their debut album, in 2014.

 

 

DIE DEVICE DIE

Band:SHAMBLES IN A HUSK
Album:DIE DEVICE DIE
Label:COLDWAR
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

Formed from the ashes of Glasgow scene legends The Darien Venture and the impressive, but ultimately short lived Crusades, SHAMBLES IN A HUSK’s debut EP ‘Die, Device, Die’ is an amalgamation of the sound of both bands – propulsive post-hardcore influenced by the likes of Fugazi and Refused, combined with the math sensibilities of Adebisi Shank and The Dillinger Escape Plan. Having only been around for less than a year, the band have already toured the UK and played this year’s Reading and Leeds Festival. ‘Die, Device, Die’ is a staggering EP which offers a social critique on the Facebook generation, all delivered in a short, brutal, stunningly proficient technical 11 minute burst.

For fans of Converge, Refused and The Dillinger Escape Plan

 

 

PAROXYSTIQUE

Band:GRISATRE
Album:PAROXYSTIQUE
Label:DUSKTONE
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Paroxystique is the title of the third long awaited album of Grisâtre. Expect a even more obscure and somber tunnel of your inner consciousness. Rokkr pieced together an album that is as reflective as it is mesmerizing This is unsettling, punishing sound that revels in its own abstraction, yet every clank is so meticulously placed, every screech of feedback so pointed that at times you forget the layers of distortion and fog altogether.

Ambient Black Metal...

 

 

NON POURABLE LINES

Band:ACROSOME
Album:NON POURABLE LINES
Label:DUSKTONE
Format:CD

”Non-pourable Lines” almost sounds like a devastating new take on the delirious black hole of ACROSOME world. Clean vocals, sick accordion, acoustic instruments and fast sound discharges will bring the listener into the most deep and obscure personal vortex.

This debut album is an unrelenting piece of work, and all the better for it. Let it sink in and prepare to have your mind prized open, you won’t regret it.

SEID UMSCHLUNGEN MILLIONEN

Band:KARIES
Album:SEID UMSCHLUNGEN MILLIONEN
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:CD
Genre:Post Punk

Forget about Hamburg because Swabia did it again! Well, not completely alone but the influences of the Swabian Alb are clearly noticeable. There’s a reason why “Kevin Kuhn has a lot to do” became a running gag in the town of Esslingen. After Die Nerven, All Diese Gewalt, Human Abfall, it’s now time for Karies – four guys scattered over Leipzig and Stuttgart. Their debut album will be released in October and let me tell you, it’s really good, promised! You can hear that they are musically related to Die Nerven and there’s also a lyrical connection to Human Abfall – probably not only because they are from the same part of the country but also because they are friends and have worked together (Die Nerven’s Max Rieger produced this record).

SHIPS WILL COME

Band:WARM GRAVES
Album:SHIPS WILL COME
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

Warm Graves are a three-piece Sci-Fidelic- Rockband whose members, originally from the US, Italy and Germany, came together in Leipzig in 2012. With their debut “Ships will come”, Warm Graves present a concept album that is in terms of content closely related to dystopic Sci-Fi literature. The band manages to create a surreal cosmos with a somnambulistic atmosphere that is supported by impulsive, repetitive rhythms while a distant choir takes over the role of the lead vocals.

The musical references are far-reaching: From the cool mood of the Cave rock bands to the grandiloquence of an Arcade Fire Song or the weirdness of the Flaming Lips.

Hail hail to the good times!"... "Unholy hell, bleak dirge, tortured riffs, blackened drone and filthy feedback are some of the elements that make up one of the sickest bands to come out of Finland."

Label:GAPHALS
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

On October 6, Dalaplan will release their second album “Plikt och elände” on Gaphals, the same record label that released the Malmöbased fivepiece's critically acclaimed debut album last year. The sound of the followup album is darker than that of their debut. Niklas Svensson, lead singer and songwriter, describes this development: “The previous record dealt with wanting to break free and escape from boredom and routines. ‘Plikt och elände’ emerged from the feeling of hopelessness sneaking up on you when you realize that the newly gained freedom didn’t make you any happier.” The second album also differs musically from the debut release. On several of the songs organist Peter Svensson has replaced his trademark Vox organ with piano and Hammond organ, and bass player Jenny Neikell has become more prominent as a vocalist in the band.

GENERAL LEE / EUGLENA

Band:GENERAL LEE / EUGLENA
Album:GENERAL LEE / EUGLENA
Label:BASEMENT APES INDUSTRIES
Format:10" VINYL
Genre:Grindcore

This coming together of Russian (Euglena) and French (General Lee) bands on Bsaement Ape Records is deeply unpleasant. From the off, Euglena set out their stall. It's one of cracked paint, rust and relentless grind. Drums blast across the surface while buzzsaw guitars and retching vocals rise up and strangle. There's a Converge influence here, but one that remains stuck on one mode, kill. Their second track Желчь has moments of swirling hatred as some kind of respite, but there's an detached, creeping insanity in the unusual timings and the headrush moments they create. Equal parts grind, 90s screamo and chaos, it's a wonderfully intricate pair of tracks that melt the eardrums.
