DIMENSIONAL BLEEDTHROUGH

Band:KRALLICE
Album:DIMENSIONAL BLEEDTHROUGH
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Acclaimed initially because Krallice were considered the black metal brainchild of guitar wizard (and one of the top 50 fastest guitar players of all time, according to Guitar World magazine) Mick Barr (Ocrilim, Orthrelm etc.) and Colin Marston (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Behold… The Arctopus, Byla etc.), the band have transcended such a genre and created a distinct and unique sound of their own with their eponymous self-titled debut album. Black metal influenced of course, yet progressively tinged with many reference points to both musicians’ other works, Krallice’s debut album became quite a force within the scene that it even prompted SPIN magazine to deem them one of the top 5 metal bands to watch (Krallice’s debut was also the number two album on singer-songwriter Ryan Adam’s top nine best albums of 2008 list!), along with acclaim in all the major metal magazines around, as Krallice’s debut pretty much found its way on many year-end best of lists (such as in media outlets like Decibel, Terrorizer, and Pitchfork). Krallice would then hone their guitar gymnastics over that blackened shroud on the live front, making a reputation for their searing live performances and finding themselves touring with such acts as Wolves In The Throne Room. Quickly wasting no time in conjuring new material, Krallice’s epic follow-up, “Dimensional Bleedthrough” takes what the debut displayed, and has multiplied it by ten. A more involved, intense, and transcendental experience, “Dimensional Bleedthrough” is a surging 77 minute epic jaunt where insane counterpoint rhythms battle it out with melancholic layered melodies through an intense progressive blackened audial shroud; the album pretty much has more of everything and basically pummels the listener to submission through the overwhelming musicality and skill that the band portray. Nonetheless, “Dimensional Bleedthrough” will solidify Krallice’s position as one of the most important bands in metal today.

Reccomended for fans of Wolves In The Throne Room, Nachtmystium, Voivod, Weakling

 

 

WORM OUROBOROS

Band:WORM OUROBOROS
Album:WORM OUROBOROS
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Bay Area ambient chamber dark rock act WORM OUROBOROS, which have been hailed as the best new Bay Area act to emerge this past year, have completed work on their self-titled debut album. Featuring members that have helped shape legendary Bay Area acts as THE GAULT (one of the greatest acts to ever emerge from the Bay Area) and AMBER ASYLUM, along with featuring members from down-tempo Bay Area death metal act WORLD EATER (not too hard to pinpoint who they are influenced by), Worm Ouroboros will bear familiar ground to those familiar with Amber Asylum and especially The Gault, since Worm Ouroboros bassist/singer Lorraine Rath (who also supplied the stunning artwork that will grace the album packaging, and who was likewise responsible for the stunning artwork that graced the debut HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE album “The Bastard”) was the one who shared songwriting duties with John Gossard (ASUNDER/WEAKLING) in The Gault respectively. Also Worm Ouroboros conjures a sound picture reminiscent of classic 4AD acts as THIS MORTAL COIL and THE COCTEAU TWINS, just leaning more on the doomy edge of course. Where very delicately woven crafted structures counteract with segments of distorted down-tuned heaviness, it is through this interaction of the two opposing styles that help mould the ethereal and stretching atmospheric vibe of Worm Ouroboros where the drifting and floating aura creates a unique and special enigmatic presence. -

Featuring Lorraine Rath who was the main songwriter alongside John Gossard (ASUNDER/WEAKLING) from the legendary Bay Area act THE GAULT who were one of the best acts in the underground to emerge from the Bay Area and also played an integral part in writing AMBER ASYLUM’s “Still Point” release. - For fans of the aforementioned The Gault and Amber Asylum alongside acts like Asunder (and doom metal in general), and classic 4AD bands like THIS MORTAL COIL and COCTEAU TWINS.

Phantom Family Halo‘s follow-up finds the group exploring boundaries beyond the usual, and embracing the epic, building on their previous LP, The Legend of Black Six. Visit myspace.com/thephantomfamilyhalo 

“I’m also right blown away by the catchy and compelling, all-purpose psychedelia of The Legend of Black Six by power trio The Phantom Family Halo. I say ‘all purpose’ because this stuff is useful and should be available by the vat on prescription ...” — Julian Cope, Head Heritage UK

“Everything from Krautrock, meat-and-potatoes prog garnished in hazy post rock, and the sludgiest of the Velvet Underground’s moments simmer and waft in the air like cigarette smoke. Rays of vintage organs glimmer and slither while the melodies and vocals are just downright disturbing.” —Chris Pacifico, The Daily Copper

“Think Syd Barrett jamming with Hawkwind or the 13th Floor Elevators in the height of the Krautrock frenzy, or The Birthday Party subdued to play a rendition of “‘The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.’” —musicremedy.com

VIDEO MUSICS

Band:ALEXIS GIDEON
Album:VIDEO MUSICS
Label:African Tape
Format:DVD
Genre:Rap/Hip Hop

Alexis Gideon, is an American musician, animator and filmmaker from Portland, Oregon. After his first two releases Welcome Song (2007 Sickroom Records) and Flight of the Liophant (2007 Sickroom Records), Alexis Gideon has switched gears with his creation of his animated/claymated video opera Video Musics inspired by traditional Hungarian Mythology and Folk Tales. Video Musics is both dazzling and baffling. So, did he make this DVD made for our children or for us? Both, probably. His stories of the origins of mythical halflion, half-elephant creatures or of the time-travelling princess Zuska are likely to appeal to anyone when told in such a delightful and joyous way. His animations are a drunken mixture of the lo-fi, the hi-fi, near schizophrenic frivolity, childlike naivety, and the odd wink to Louis Bunuel or Jean Cocteau. Gideon soundtracks this mad visual concoction with his own equally bizarre take on hip-hop, tying his wobbling grooves and warbling synthesizers together with these fantastical narratives. Whilst Gideon may be well off the beaten track, eschewing both traditional children’s narrative style and the mores of contemporary hip-hop, his naïve charm and the depth of his imagination are enough to seduce any viewer.

• On tour over Europe in November 2009 (shows with Great Lake Swimmers, Dan Deacon, Shelley Short)

When Wolves in The Throne Room were invited to play the Roadburn festival 2008 nobody expected that they would be one of the main surprises.

The band even got asked back to play the Roadburn festival again in 2009. This release captures a band at their peak in audio and video (the DVD is included with the album).

Band:STONE AXE
Album:STONE AXE lp
Label:ROADBURN
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Classic Rock/Metal

In between writing Songs for Future Gods, Mos Generator singer/guitarist Tony Dallas Reed started up a second project, Stone Axe. Switching from vocals to, uh, everything else (he’s credited with all instruments on this two song 7”, with Dru Brinkerhoff handling vocals), Stone Axe is focused on recreating the classic rock sound of the early ‘70’s. We’re talking about those English bands that staggered out of the pubs and defined a genre by playing from the heart. If Mos Generator’s “Godhand Iommi” is a tribute to the Sabbath guitarist, Stone Axe pays homage to Free, Small Faces, Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy and more.

LIVE AT ROAD BURN 2008

Band:YEAR OF NO LIGHT
Album:LIVE AT ROAD BURN 2008
Label:ROADBURN
Format:LP AND DVD
Genre:Alt Rock

The French doomy postrockers Year of no Light got general critical acclaim of their demo quoting them as being “The Cure playing sludge”. Combined with live reviews becoming more and more encouraging, the band were compelled into the writing new tracks that ended up being recorded at Playrec studio under the direction of Serge Morratel in the fall of 2005. The debut Nord has been released in 2006 to much acclaim. Live at Roadburn was recorded at the famous Roadburn Festival in 2008. For the last song the band was joined on stage by Fear Falls Burning for 20 minutes of doom/drone mayhem. Included in the gatefold of the album is a dvd of the same concert.

Year Of No Light bring an amazing set of songwriting chops to the songs, a heavy, chugging metallic monster that channels both gloomy atmospherics reminiscent of The Cure, and crushing Neurosis-inspired dirgecore, heavy, raw, and lumbering, but at times extremely beautiful and epic. To us, YEAR OF NO LIGHT seems to orbit the guitar-heavy early 90's alt rock of bands like Swervedriver and Dinosaur Jr., The Cure and My Bloody Valentine, just as much as it draws from the arty, crushing metallic post-hardcore pioneered by Old Man Gloom and Neurosis.

IDIOTS SAVANTS

Band:GOMER PYLE
Album:IDIOTS SAVANTS
Label:ROADBURN
Format:DOUBLE VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Gomer Pyle play heavy, groovy rock with a lot of psychedelic atmosphere added. By 2007 enough material has been written to produce a full length album Idiots Savants. The album contains a diverse range of styles and moods; Heavy Stoner, Doom, Tripped Out soundscapes and some more regular song based material. All recorded with studio trickery by longtime friend and studio freak Danny Gras. This album is the mind-boggling headphone trip that you`ve always wanted to experience. A perfect soundtrack to long distance road trips. The vinyl contains 2 extra tracks of the first Gomer Pyle EP. Part of Roadburns back cat!!

"Comparisons with 35007 and Astrosoniq impose themselves and it can not be denied, there are similarities. Fortunately not that many it becomes too obvious, Gomer Pyle is undeniably a spacerock/stoner band like the other two, but by no means a slavish imitator. Somewhere in the distance echoes can be heard of the early Pink Floyd combined with krautrock-like trance." (Stonerrock.com)

 

 

NEKROPSALMS

Band:OBLITERATION
Album:NEKROPSALMS
Label:FYSISK FORMAT
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

OBLITERATION is a young Death metal band from Kolbotn (home of Darkthrone, Aura Noir, Lamented Souls among others), Norway. They started out in 2001 and have ever since left a trail of destruction behind them with HELLBLAZING gigs and rock solid releases. Obliteration got the honor to be the youngest band EVER to play at the Inferno Festival in 2005. OBLITERATION released the "Total Fucking Obliteration" 7” on Duplicate records soon after, and several gigs followed, with bands like Aura Noir, Dismember, Waklevren, Old, Sabbat(uk), Shining among others, and several festival appearances(Hole in the Sky, etc.). In 2006 OBLITERATION were asked to sign with cult label Tyrant Syndicate, a sub-label of Peaceville records, which is run by Nocturno Culto of Darthrone. OBLITERATION released the debut album "Perpetual Decay" in may 2007 which got great reviews worldwide, and a UK tour with doomsters Ramesses followed. Now in 2009 OBLITERATION have finished the recording of a fresh new album, ready to be unleashed upon this earth. "Nekropsalms" is a cosmic blend of old school death metal mixed with the best elements from doom, punk, thrash and old school black metal, and after 8 years, OBLITERATION have finaly found their own repulsive style.

"The talent and sound of Obliteration has morphed from a ferocious jackal on the debut album to a BRONTOSAURUS of vibes and wonder! STAMPEDE!" -FENRIZ of DARKTHRONE

 

 

LIVE QUARTZ

Band:QUARTZ
Album:LIVE QUARTZ
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Released in 1980, ‘Live Quartz – Count Dracula And Other Love Songs’ (to give it its full title!) rattled few cages but entertained many upon its original release. Here was one of Britain’s hardest working acts – a band that would go on to play the Reading Festival a total of three times and would tour as support to UFO, Iron Maiden, Gillan, Saxon and Rush – doing what they did best in front of a highly partisan audience. In short, Quartz rocked! On a good night, it was a brave band that would take the stage after Quartz had done their thing. Lacking finesse it may well have been, but when Quartz did the job at hand that job stayed well and truly done. As live albums go, ‘Live Quartz – Count Dracula And Other Love Songs’ is one of the more memorable ones.

First Ever Time On CD - Listen and believe.

 

 

DARK STAR

Band:DARK STAR
Album:DARK STAR
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

For many, Dark Star is little more than a footnote in the book that is to be called ‘The History Of The NWOBHM’, a band warmly remembered for one outstanding track that quite rightly features regularly in lists made the world over of the greatest ever NWOBHM tracks. Understandable though this slightly blinkered attitude is, it is also wide of the mark by quite some way… Check the album out and you’ll see that it isn’t all just about ‘Lady Of Mars’. Opener ‘Kaptain Amerika’ with it’s cold war message, the stomping ‘Backstreet Killer’ and the anthemic ‘Rockbringer’ all ably show just how good a band Dark Star were. For many, though, the crowning glory is and will always be ‘Lady Of Mars’ Difficult to argue with, really…Fist time on cd too!

 

 

NOW HEAR THIS

Band:HELLANBACH
Album:NOW HEAR THIS
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Two words spring to mind when you listen to Hellanbach’s debut album ‘Now Hear This’, and those two words are…Van Halen. The cocksure attitude on display is highly reminiscent of the initial impact that Van Halen showed back in 1977 when their astonishing debut album first hit the stores. We hadn’t heard anything like it before and they knew it! That same “we’re gonna do exactly want we want and there’s nothing you can do about it” bravado runs through the grooves of ‘Now Hear This’ and although by this time we had heard something like it before, we hadn’t heard anything like it from a British band. Nearly twenty five years after its release, the excitement that accompanied this album’s arrival is still evident. Undoubtedly one of – if not the – finest British hard rock debuts of the 80’s, ‘Now Hear This’ still manages to sound fresh, urgent and important on it's first ever cd release.

 

 

THE BIG H

Band:HELLANBACH
Album:THE BIG H
Label:Krescendo
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Hellanbach’s debut album ‘Now Hear This’ was always going to be a very difficult album to follow. And so it proved to be…. Neat records were keen to capitalize on the debut album’s healthy sales by getting the band’s sophomore effort into the shops with as little delay as possible. So, holed up in Neat’s Wallsend, Tyne & Wear studios, work began on what was to become ‘The Big H’. ‘The Big H’ is a fine album in its own right. Is it as good as ‘Now Hear This’? Probably not, but that isn’t the point. Hellanbach’s star shone briefly but ever so brightly. What this bunch of north easterners proved beyond a shadow of a doubt was that, given determination and inspiration, it was possible to compete on a budget with the best that America had to offer, and compete well at that. Many have followed in their footsteps with varying degrees of success but Hellanbach were the first, and that counts for a lot..First time on cd.

Re- release of a true Stoner classic!! Truckfighters is probably the best live band on earth, combined with the best songwriters in today’s music. Everyone who claims the opposite should go and see them right now! The hard part for the band was to capture the feeling from the live shows in the recording of this album. After all, it is the shows that have built their huge popularity among the fuzzlovers. After over 250 liveshows all across Europe and 2 European tours together with Fu Manchu almost everyone with a little sense of good music k nows who Truckfighters is. It’s all about 13 songs and 67 minutes of pure Swedish fuzz-rock! A classic album among stoner/hardrock fans all over the world. An epic album!

 

 

VAST OCEANS LACHRYMOSE

Band:WHILE HEAVEN WEPT
Album:VAST OCEANS LACHRYMOSE
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Since 1989, While Heaven Wept have not only contributed to the very definition of Epic Doom Metal, but with each release have continued to push the boundaries of the genre and in fact have developed a sound uniquely their own; incorporating elements of Baroque, Romantic, 20th century Classical, Cosmic Music, Dark Progressive, Darkwave, Doom, and various styles of metal their sound is very distinctive, very different, yet strangely familiar. With 2009's "Vast Oceans Lachrymose," While Heaven Wept offer their most diverse release to date, containing all of the hallmarks of the "WHW sound" but the songs are far more progressive and aggressive than anything they've released previously. Clearly a natural evolution from their critically acclaimed 2003 album "Of Empires Forlorn," it is obvious WHW have no intention of stagnating musically nor playing music that isn't anything less than sincere - no Doom for the sake of Doom here.

For fans of Candlemass, early Fates Warning, Rush etc. • The missing link between 'Awaken The Guardian' and 'No Exit' ... The album fans of early Fates Warning have been waiting 20 years for!

 

 

YOU WILL BLEED

Band:WHILE HEAVEN WEPT
Album:YOU WILL BLEED
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

"You Will Bleed" is Handful of Hate’s 5th full length album, a new chapter from one of the most extreme Black Metal bands ever. Carnality and infamy drowned into a gruesome and explicit act of hate. A mature, powerful and fast as well tribute to the old and underground Black Metal tradition. From the past to the nowadays scene the cult is alive and it has never been so intense and grim. Handful of Hate was formed in 1993 by Nicola B. After three full length albums, various EPs and 7’’s, in 2005 the band signs to Cruz Del Sur Music, releasing “Gruesome Splendour” in late 2006. The original line-up split in 2007, but it took Nicola only few months to bring back the band to life with new members; the band took the road again to promote its name playing several shows and festival across Europe. In early 2009 Handful of Hate enters one of the best metal studio in Italy, Studio 73, to record their brand new album entitled “You will Bleed” to be released worldwide by Cruz Del Sur Music in Nov 2009.

 

 

EVERYBODY JIVE TO THE LONDON ROCK

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:EVERYBODY JIVE TO THE LONDON ROCK
Label:PSYCHIC CIRCLE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock And Roll/Psychobilly

In the mid 1950s, while the Western World was still immersed in the aftermath of World War Two, a new concept was discovered. This concept, stroppy and rebellious, was the teenager. Up till then you were a child until you became an adult. One minute you were in short pants, the next you were smoking a pipe. Now there was an intermediary stage, during which you could experience the nascent pleasures of adulthood without having to succumb to its more mundane disciplines. These new teenagers needed new idols. They couldn’t relate to the polite swing of the dance bands. Some found modern jazz a bit too esoteric, while, to be honest, the heart-throbs of the early 50s mostly looked like they were in their early 50s! Suddenly a wild, new sound from the USA was being broadcast over select airwaves. Singers with exotic names like Jerry Lee, Elvis, Buddy and Gene were strutting their stuff. Hollywood was beginning to embrace this movement, and, over in The UK, jazzmen, dance band members, crooners and hopeful kids were suddenly buying guitars, greasing back their hair and rockin’ like there was no tomorrow. Here’s a selection of what was happening in the basements and coffee bars of Britain at that most wonderful and innocent of times. We’ve got lids to be flipped, joints to be rocked and rugs to be cut. So what are you waiting for?

MUSIC FOR MENTALISTS

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:MUSIC FOR MENTALISTS
Label:PSYCHIC CIRCLE
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Perhaps the first question should be why? For what warped reason did some misguided record executive think that any of the music contained within this compilation was worth releasing on a commercial basis? Whose twisted vision saw these tracks racing up the charts? In fact, who thought that anybody, apart from those with an equally cracked view of the world, would rush to their local disc boutique to snap up even one of these bizarre items? But then again, perhaps it doesn’t really matter at all, and we should just be grateful that these skewed slices of strangeness were pressed up and are still to be found lurking in dark corners of dust-shrouded record racks, charity shops, boot fairs and flea markets. Mick Dillingham has devoted many years of vinyl hunting to unearthing the obscure, the peculiar, and in some cases the downright disturbing. Here, Psychic Circle is delighted to present a selection of his personal favourites. Thrill to a Yiddish version of Rock Around The Clock, groove to a song about aliens landing in Northampton, sit open-mouthed at the late Michael Elphick’s deeply worrying paean to kidnap and date-rape (it can’t be, can it?), weep along with the moving tribute to Sefton, the cavalry horse blown up by the IRA. Emotions you never knew you had will be brought to the surface. Will it change your life? Probably not, but it will bring some unusual and welcome colour into it. Please join me in thanking Mr. Dillingham for his tireless endeavours in seeking out hidden gems that would otherwise have remained undiscovered. Michael, you have brought us Music For Mentalists and we salute you.

FOR ALL THE SLAVES A SONG OF FALSE HOPE

Band:GNAW THEIR TONGUES
Album:FOR ALL THE SLAVES A SONG OF FALSE HOPE
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

"For All The Slaves..." takes GTT in a direction that mixes in more pleasing sounds with his usual miasma of horror and suffering. Sound comparisons might be made with Esoteric, Stalaggh and Abruptum but the music of Gnaw Their Tongues is a chaotic tapestry riven with sickness and evil that is unique in the world of extreme metal. Spoken word samples and literal screams of despair comingle with doom and post-industrial soundscapes while sweeping orchestral gestures are subsumed by layers of manic black metal psychedelia. Just as there are no accurate comparisons for GTT, there is also no way to avoid the psychological impact of this record. It will find your vulnerabilities and punish them mercilessly. Prepare to enter darkness of the mind... a Burning World back catalogue release.

In the wake of the second wave of black metal or “norsecore”, if you will, Israthoum was formed in 1992 in Portugal under the Tolkien-inspired name of Grendel, by drummer Arvath and guitar player Arluth Dhu. Soon after Voxinferi a.k.a. Israth and his psycho shrieks joined as vocalist. “Monument of Brimstone” isn't anymore held in the confines of harsh norsecore only, Israthoum has grown to display melancholic folkish tendencies usually connected with the early Emperor/early Borknagar tradition.

PHASES 3

Band:BLOODYMINDED
Album:PHASES 3
Label:Rococo
Format:TRIPLE 7\"
Genre:Avant-Garde

I know what you are thinking, “What is this thing?” Or maybe, “Why does it exist?” Why does a beautifully packaged triple white vinyl 7-inch box-set, containing some of the rawest BLOODYMINDED tracks ever captured on tape, or MiniDisc, in this case, even fucking exist? And lord knows, there are a few preceding raw BLOODYMINDED live recordings, that much is certain. And why are these four basement bruises bookended by such seemingly high-fidelity studio fuckery? Well, let’s talk about it, for a minute. The band went out on tour in August 2006, in support of our “Magnetism” CD, along with some friends: Demons, Graveyards (sometimes Burning when C. Spencer Yeh would appear), and Lambsbread. Each night, we played four songs off of the then-still-new album. Those would be the middle four cuts that appear here. The strange thing about those “Magnetism” tracks (and boy, did they ultimately prove to be ultramagnetic that night, but who knew?), unlike most core BLOODYMINDED songs, is that they have no discernable lyrics, per se, so that always leaves a lot of room for vocal improvisation… or a bunch of screaming, moaning, shrieking, and whatnot. In this particular case, these four works of art were recorded live on August 8, 2006, at Spooky Action Palace, in Saint Louis, Missouri. We had played there before and we were as comfortable as you can get in the humid basement of a house in a Midwestern town, during a tour that saw 100- degree temperatures pretty much every day. That particular night was special, as BLOODYMINDED, which has members scattered not just around the country, but across the globe, had a pretty extraordinary line-up. Über-fan Nicole Chambers had been brought into the fold to play synth and to handle the live mix for that tour. Xavier Laradji flew in from Toulouse, France, to play synth, to add some Froggy vocals, and to take in as much Americana as he could that summer. Isidro Reyes, who could not go with us on that tour due to “other commitments,” made t he marathon there-and-back drive from Chicago to Saint Louis, just for this one god damned show. Pieter Schoolwerth was on loan from New York, specifically to break synths, snap microphone cables, and keep things as lively as possible. And me, Mark Solotroff, I drove the car, I screamed, moaned, shrieked, sweated, etc. Weird, indeed. Three guys who are among my very closest friends and brothers, and one chillingly silent girl, putting on some mileage and attempting to stir things up, night after night (except Isidro on all but this one night. Damn.). Again, why did this thing get made? Why these songs? Because, it is absolutely the most pure example of how out of control this thing could get, given all of the right/wrong circumstances: a heat-wave; vintage analog synthesizers getting beat to hell on a nightly basis; non-existent PA systems; wound-up audiences of various sizes; blood, sweat, and maybe some tears. And basements. Basements do make a difference. So, what about the first and the last tracks? Well, following the pattern set with the “PHASES : ONE” cassette and the “PHASES : TWO” CD – and I do love patterns, of course – the “PHASES : THREE” parts seek to offer a different process, whereby songs, audience outbreaks, and incidental moments during a show, find their way into a disorienting mixture of sound and texture, blended up and damaged, as if run through an audio In-Sink-Erator, and then get lovingly re-assembled for maximum fidelity (almost). And why “Magnetism,” why these song titles, and why the moon imagery? I have answered that before. My mom – and – it all really happened. Do we learn? Apparently not. For the record, lest you think that this is some sort of low-fidelity mess more suited for a vomit-encrusted cassette tape, the studio processing on "PHASES : THREE (PART ONE)" and "PHASES : THREE (PART TWO)" and pre-production for all six songs was completed at Conservatory, Chicago, Illinois, September 2007, and mastering was skillfully completed by Salvatore Dellaria at Eightysevenwest Recording, Chicago, Illinois, September 2007. Trust me, crank it up and you will feel like you are in that basement at that show. Limited to 300 Custom Made Boxsets White Vinyl

 

 

THE NEED TO KILL

Band:HELLBASTARD
Album:THE NEED TO KILL
Label:SELFMADEGOD
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The classic, influential UK crossover metal/crust band Hellbastard is back with all guns blazing and has released the new album The Need to Kill. Often cited as being the band who created the crust punk/metal wave of the early 1980s, these Brits flex their wide-ranging musical muscles on The Need to Kill by including everything from a banjo, whispered vocals, clean guitar and soundscapes to neck-break speeds, distorted crunches and breakdown stomps. They haven’t forgotten where they came from: in addition to the 10 new vibrant thrash/hardcore songs on The Need to Kill, the band has included 6 rerecorded Hellbastard classics. The album doesn’t stray far from the milestone Natural Order album Earache Records put out back in 1990, either. The Need to Kill demands to be heard with a crisp, big sound that’s signature Hellbastard. This is a must-have for all fans of the first wave of British crust/metal/punk and bands like AMEBIX, CONCRETE SOX, DEVIATED INSTINCT, and AXEGRINDER.

 

 

ECO WAR

Band:HELLBASTARD
Album:ECO WAR
Label:SELFMADEGOD
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The UK crossover metal/crust band Hellbastard is back with 5 new songs including a rerecorded track from 1986 and a raging Slayer cover! As opposed to the album The Need to Kill, Eco-War is a mostly mid-paced and more focused beatdown of metal/punk/crust. Eco-War isn’t just a rehash of The Need to Kill: if you can’t imagine an organ on a Hellbastard record, prepare to have your ears opened. Featuring an additional guitar player added to the lineup, the EP has its own approach and shows another side to the influential, classic Hellbastard sound. Think of a unique mixture of the legendary Brit-crust of AMEBIX, CONCRETE SOX, DEVIATED INSTINCT, and AXEGRINDER paired with more modern metal like LAMB OF GOD.

 

 

TANGENITAL MADNESS

Band:DEMENTED ARE GO
Album:TANGENITAL MADNESS
Label:FURY RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Rock And Roll/Psychobilly

Finally available again ! "This is good. Really, really good, far better than Orgasmic Nightmare in my opinion. The studio production is really good. And the songs are good, I even like the Intro better than the intro from O.N. Some of my favorite songs are on here, which is a bit redundant because most of Demented Are Go's songs are my favorite songs. But anyway, songs like 'Brand New Corpse', 'Gambling Queen, 'Zombie Stalk' and 'The Chase' make this one a winner in my book. I always wanted to hear what 'The Chase' sounded like on CD, and it sounds good. Also, a Jimi Hendrix cover, and you can tell when it gets there, that it is no normal song. I can never get enough Demented Are Go. It's starting to get to the point where it's hard for me to find Demented Are Go stuff I don't have, I'm not sure how much of it there is, but when it does come out I'll be all over it." Josh K

Trying to determine just when and how Demented Are Go started is not an exact science as the band members themselves admit that their memories are not all that good, but we do know that by 1982 the band were up and running. Guitarist Dick Thomas (no relation to Ant) helped pull the whole thing together, having been in a lot of bands before Demented, he knew how to get things moving. Demented Are Go had their first release on the 1984 Nervous Records compilation album 'Hells Bent On Rockin' but it was not until about 18 months later that their album 'In Sickness And In Health' was released on ID Records. A few years on the band members could be found all living in the same squat in London with no electricity - this would have been around '87-88-ish. They started writing songs acoustically, by candle light. These songs surfaced - again on ID - as the album 'Kicked Out Of Hell'. Tours of Germany and mainland Europe followed and Demented Are Go found themselves playing at punk gigs as well psycho events. Sparky started living at various big organised squats and existing on diet of drugs and alcohol......

The Action, one of Canada’s first punk bands, formed in Ottawa in 1977. Their style combined early American and English punk like The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, and The Vibrators with rock influences such as The Rolling Stones’ guitar attack and The Allman Brothers’ dual-guitar and slide-guitar leads, which, combined with provocative lyrics and an untouchable stage show, made The Action a musician’s band. The Action was chosen to open for The Ramones in 1978 and helped spearhead punk across Canada when they supported The Stranglers on that band’s first North American tour the same year. This collection covers The Action’s short but wild career from 1977-’78: their debut 12-inch (which includes the cult classic “TV’s on the Blink”) and a recording for a never-released follow-up EP, plus smokin’ live tracks recorded at the infamous Rotters Club in Ottawa, Canada.

HAZARD

Band:THE SENIOR ALLSTARS
Album:HAZARD
Label:LIQUIDATOR MUSIC
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Reggae/Dub/Ska

For a lot of people, The Senior Allstars bring to mind the successful times of Dr. Ring-Ding & The Senior Allstars, when the internationally renowned act played all over Europe and released countless records. But for ten years now, the five musicians from Münster have devoted themselves to their favoured kind of music -- purely instrumental, Jamaican-influenced sounds. Rolling Stone awarded their previous release, "Come Around" (2008), 4 1/2 stars, calling for an "obligation to listen closely”, and their new album deserves no less: "Hazard" is based on familiar Senior Allstars ingredients -- instrumental reggae, dub elements and ska. Even more than its predecessors, "Hazard" succeeds in creating an amazingly dense, atmospheric sound. The twelve songs -- all of them original compositions by the group’s musical mastermind and composer, Markus Dassmann -- evolve on the basis of haunting riddims and gritty musical themes. In addition, the Senior Allstars invited three comrades-in-arms from days gone by who have enhanced the tracks with wind section parts and additional solos.

ROTATOR

Band:EVERYTHING ON RED
Album:ROTATOR
Label:Lockjaw
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

EVERYTHING ON RED come out of Staffordshire with the intention to make you smile, make you dance and make you think. A punk rock band with a bit of difference; Everything On Red have managed to integrate a synth into their writing with ease. Not quite the shoe-horned affair it is with many other protagonists of the usually gimmicky genre. The lads have cherry picked their influences from various sources; bands like Cursive, Brand New and Minus The Bear have all helped them on their way. However such is the unique sound of the band it’s impossible to say they have ripped anyone off. Rotator is the band’s first full-length after their first self-titled EP gained excellent press in 2008. Full of triple pronged vocals, frantic verses and massive hooks that just beg you to stand up and sing along. All the elements of a great punk rock band are there, its not going to scare off the purists but Everything On Red bring enough to the table to be stood up and counted.

Their debut mini-album was recorded at Mighty Atom Studios in Wales Produced by Joe Gibb (Funeral For A Friend, Million Dead) and Paul Reeve (Muse) After a very successful Spring tour Bull See Red are upping sticks and getting back around the country in November.

There is always a hook to grab hold of, a guitar part to stir the soul, and enough variation to keep your interest throughout. Defcon are rarely without a show and get on the live stage at every opportunity, the band have played with some of the highest profile bands of the punk rock world including A Wilhelm Scream and Boysetsfire.

THE WORKING HORSE

Band:PARACHUTES
Album:THE WORKING HORSE
Label:Lockjaw
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

The European music scene rarely experienced such a hard working band as the Parachutes. Since 2004 the five-piece from has cruised more than 300 times all over Europe. No matter if they deal with ramshackle or narrow stages in small and muggy youth centres or large concert halls, they play them all - no distance is too far for them! Sweaty and with a dirty smirk on their bloodied faces, they’re raising their fists against all music-butchers and are not afraid of their own development. Along with their powerful live presence, the previous longplayers “Vultures” (Redfield, 2008) and “And I won’t stop until you’ve lost everything you ever loved” (Lockjaw, 2006) have established their standing as one of the greatest bands in European´s hardcore-music scene.

If you rattle through the list of bands with which the Parachutes have shared a stage, it’s like reading a “Who Is Who” of the international emo-, screamo, hardcore-, whatever-scene, which just speaks for the band’s variety as well as: Underoath, Taking Back Sunday, Rise Against, Silverstein, The Used, From Autumn To Ashes, Caliban, Callejon, Alesana and so many others that you’d need too much space to name them all.

With their third longplayer “The Working Horse”, the Parachutes are presenting themselves with a rougher, dirtier, darker, but also more mature sound. From the first second on the eleven songs pump adrenaline through your veins. Intensive and enriched with a load of rockappeal, the Parachutes are fielding their new horse.

FRAGMENTATION

Band:DEXY CORP
Album:FRAGMENTATION
Label:BLACK RAIN GMBH
Format:CD
Genre:Industrial/EBM

"Download pain, it's time to plug my hate" DEXY CORP_ is the new rising IndustrialRock-hope from France. Intense brutality has ever been used by many bands as an accoustic stylistic device. But most of them used this to such an extent that it got more and more a banalized and boring phrase. DEXY CORP_ managed it to re-invent this brutality for themselves in order to raise the bar in the IndustrialRock genre. But they do not rest on their laurels - they go one step further. Uncompromising songs with a skillfully done songwriting and use of instrument do not just invite the listener - they wrest him from his world into a completely new and strange universe in which dreadful and menacing future visions merge with a cold and categorical rejection of today's society. Ultra heavy industrial guitars and vertiginous arrangements will not leave any time to rest and dwarf everything else before. Whoever admires bands like Die Krupps, Ministry or KMFDM will love DEXY CORP_! But be careful: Use at own risk!

Album:INCONSTANTINOPOLIS
Label:Moonlee
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

ANALENA is back! Five years after their highly acclaimed album Carbon Based, Croatian/Slovenian quartet returns on the music map with a burning torch. And it is obvious that ANALENA has not fallen asleep on the past trophies, but it is always heading forward to the new sounds, new challenges, new adventures. Their brand new one is entitled Inconstantinopolis, released by their own record label – Moonlee Records. ANALENA is a celebration of DIY (do-it-yourself) ethics in full force, since they manage, record, release, promote and distribute their music by themselves.

ANALENA is not one of the many, on the contrary, ANALENA is the one and only, with its unique and uncompromising approach, skillfully floating from postpunk and powerpop through galaxy of noise all the way to rock and hardcore. Therefore it is hard to compare ANALENA to other bands, but other bands are often compared to ANALENA. This says a lot by itself. Therefore leave references aside and let yourself guide through Inconstantinopolis. Watch out over stroking female screaming, sharpened by repetitive guitar slicing and fatten by well oiled bass, which doesn’t fall out of precise and thundering drums. Don’t miss well hidden melodic tunes, neither crazy guitar interplays. Let yourself float between atmospheric and energetic, uncompromising and dreamy, precision and chaos, playfulness and tension, since it is concise and well balanced mix indeed. ANALENA strikes again - “like a fire”

WHERE MOUNTAINS WALK

Band:JUGGERNAUT
Album:WHERE MOUNTAINS WALK
Label:Subsound Records
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The Juggernaut born in Rome during winter 2006. From Its five members comes the idea of producing a grave and gloomy sound, able to synthesize the language of metal, the violence of hardcore and the imaginary of gothic. A long experience acquired in other as constructive as different bands brought them to work on a timbric research generating a fascinating wall of sound, where every note seems to find its place in the representation of an avalanche that everything submerges, and in the desolating dusts emerging from that. Devotion for having things down to a fine art suggested them a careful work of arrangement and filing, so that violence of form could contain a more refined expressivity, giving space to ethnic instruments and original colours. Rabid and wistful works, dust and snow, Opeth meet Neurosis, overshadowing mountains and the Mediterranean sea scent, Mastodon arranged by Ennio Morricone.

RIYL: Opeth, Cult of Luna, Mastodon, Neurosis, Mr. Bungle.

THE DEAD END

Band:ABANDON
Album:THE DEAD END
Label:Blackstarfoundation
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Written and rehearsed for three years, recorded live in the end of 2005. Vocals recorded fragmentarily during the following years due to constant storms of adversity. Finally completed in the spring of 2009, our over 100 minutes long double album THE DEAD END has really taken its toll on us. This will be a posthumous release for our singer Johan Carlzon who passed away last december. We're confident that the lyrics, vocal delivery and artwork on this album will stand as a proud monument of his unique talent and person. From working with very barren sonic landscapes on our last album In Reality We suffer (recorded in 2002), we really tried to push things forward this time with new member Mehdi Vafaei's pump organ adding a thick and mournful voice to the mix and letting us write with greater freedom. We gave it all on this one. Johan will be remembered!

 

 

ET TU, HOPE

Band:JESSAIAH
Album:ET TU, HOPE
Label:Blackstarfoundation
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

One of the most interesting bands in Sweden right now is Jesaiah. Complex hardcore from Stockholm in the likes of Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan and some very interesting additional Post rock parts to this heavy mixture of Hardcore and Metal. In other words relievingly uncompromsing, but playful at the same time The guitars are violated, they whistle and scream begging for help. But maybe this is what keeps them so good... ...Their more mellow parts, have a sense of melody and atmospheres added to them that make them more special and get out of the same patterns all the time. ...Smart riffs, good ideas, brutal beatdowns and good mixture of the best elements available.... ...There's a lot of potential here!

IN BLOOD AND HEART

Band:PERSISTENSE
Album:IN BLOOD AND HEART
Label:Deity Down
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Hailing from The Netherlands, PERSISTENSE (not a spelling error but a contraction of 'to persist' and 'intense') was founded in the year 2000. Initially the band’s musical direction was firmly Thrash-rooted, but with personnel changes the band’s style changed into a more powerful, dynamic and intense kind of metal, watermarked by decent song structures, meaningful lyrics and groove in abundance. Some traces of Thrash still remain but also references to classic Heavy Metal can be found in the twin leads. Meanwhile, the vocals are a crossbreed of aggressive Hardcore and Death Metal sounds.

Prior to their debut full-length ‘In Blood And Heart’ the band released an eponymous mini (2005) and a promo (2008). The latter resulted in a deal with DEITY DOWN RECORDS. The band played with a.o. Devious, Dead by Dawn, Xystus, Demia, Pleurisy, and The Dying. PERSISTENSE opened for Testament at the world famous Dynamo Club in Eindhoven, Netherlands in 2009. They also did a small tour together with Dimension 7 in their Infinite Madness era.

On “Define : Divine” VERMIN ’s mix of brutal, twisted US Death with grim, gloomy breakdowns and progressive touches just became creepier, darker, more threatening and more atmospheric than ever before.
