NEW IN STOCK - 2014.05

Image

BELZEBONG - DUNGEON VULTURES
This LP is limited to 500 copies on smoke haze green vinyl. This set contains the nearly 15 minute long 'Dungeon Vulture', and the B-side includes the 2009 demo tracks as bonus.

Image

CELOPHYS - PHOBOS ELEVATOR
the music here is slow and heavy with great riffs. To get an idea, imagine a mix of Winter and Weedeater! Limited to 250 hand numbered copies.

Image

LEVIATHAN - A SILHOUETTE IN SPLINTERS
This is a journey. It is psychologically charged, and provides what we think to be a very up close and personal view of the artist himself. It is also an extraordinarily beautiful album, and the brooding elements only add to the incredible atmosphere it conjures. This is a stunning black metal album, and if you're lucky enough to acquire this on vinyl, you will not be disappointed. Clear vinyl.

Image

LEVIATHAN - HOWL MOCKERY AT THE CROSS (2LP)
This is an album that people can take a listen to and see how this type of black metal should be done. White vinyl.

Image

LEVIATHAN - MASSIVE CONSPIRACY AGAINST ALL LIFE (2LP)
In a morbid way this black metal album will leave you satisfied and pleased. Blue vinyl.

Image

LEVIATHAN - TENTACLES OF WHORROR (2LP)
This album is ambient and heavy, dark but also revealing. Wrest is one of metal's most talented artists, and this might just be his greatest work. Red vinyl.

Image

LEVIATHAN - THE TENTH SUB LEVEL OF SUICIDE (2LP)
The atmosphere on this record is fucking undeniable, and, in the end, that's what Leviathan have always been about. Black vinyl.

Image

YIDHRA - HEXED (2LP)
The spectacular debut album by US doom-gods YIDHRA from Hollywood, 'Hexed' is the long awaited 9-song follow-up to 2009's critically acclaimed self-titled EP. It was recorded at Skull Seven Studios in North Hollywood, CA by legendary producer Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Corrosion of Conformity, D.R.I., Sacred Reich etc.). Gold vinyl.

EXPECTED - 2014.05

ASH BORER - ASH BORER
The devistating debut from Ash Borer, now also available on vinyl! The LP (on 160-gram black/red vinyl) is presented in a heavyweight case-wrapped faux-leather jacket with red foil printing. Includes an 11"x17" insert of the original gatefold art.

ASH BORER - COLD OF AGES (2LP)
Now also on double-LP! A darker and much more devastating work than the debut, 'Cold Of Ages' is a surging, twisted, primal and sprawling epic that will find its place among the most prominent black metal releases of the 2010's. This double vinyl edition features a heavier, more aggressive mix than the CD version!

ATROCITY - ATLANTIS (2LP)
For the very first time on vinyl! Housed in an exclusive, elegant and never-seen-before book-like-cover in a limited hand-numbered edition of 350 pieces worldwide, this amazing release features exclusive original liner notes from Alexander Krull, for the vinyl release only! An incredible thick booklet is part of this masterwork with lyrics and original artwork! I don't think there's much more one can desire. Every copy is sealed to preserve the glossy paper cover which contains the gatefold! Now there is only one thing you have to worry about: being fast enough!

CULTED - OBLIQUE TO ALL PATHS (2LP)
CULTED's story is a unique one: four band members, spread out over multiple countries and continents, having never performed music together in the same room, coming together through the wonders of modern technology to create totally compelling TOP OF THE LINE DOOM. While Culted's writing and recording process may be unusual, and a story unto itself, it certainly should not overshadow what this band has accomplished: creating a bleak and epic masterpiece of dystopian doom. Cinematic in its scope, 'Oblique To All Paths' is a beautifully haunting and grim piece of sprawling doom metal. DOUBLE-VINYL ISSUE!

Image

EARTH CRISIS - SALVATION OF INNOCENCE
2014 album by Syracuse metalcore veterans Earth Crisis.

Image

EMPEROR - IX EQUILIBRIUM (2LP)
Any fan or person who appreciates quality musical craftsmanship will surely sing praise to the recording legacy that now represents the career of Norways Emperor. Their rise to popularity outlines the very development of black metals second wave; a period of the genres most prolific and controversial material to date. Reissue features previously unreleased video and live footage.

FAUNA - AVIFAUNA (2LP)
FAUNA's 'Avifauna' is a furious continuation of the duo's unique aural compositions. This double-LP edition is pressed on 200-gram vinyl and presented in a matte-laminated gatefold jacket with spot varnish.

FLOOR (USA) - FLOOR (DELUXE+7")
DELUXE EXPANDED EDITION of their s/t debut album (2003), on COLOURED vinyl. A thunderous, soaring doom/sludge/pop/rock hybrid. Adds a 7-inch with three outtakes from the album's recording sessions, first unearthed for the 'Below & Beyond' discography box set. Also includes an exclusive full-colour inner sleeve featuring lyrics (for the first time ever) and never-before-seen photos, plus a four-page transcription of the Decibel 'Hall of Fame' album feature, a sticker and patch. Nice!

Image

HERETOIR - SUBSTANZ
On blue vinyl, limited to 389 copies, presented in a gatefold sleeve including an A3 poster and vinyl bonus track. Thematically, 'Substanz' deals with isolation, dream and reality, and fears. "What is man without soul?" is only one of the many existential questions that are raised in Eklatanz' lyrics. The goal of the release is to arouse the listeners awareness, encouraging him or her to reflect on ones own existence. Thus, in its new, improved form and not least because of the atmospheric artwork drawn by Herbst of Lantlôs, 'Substanz' represents an intense and widespread engagement with the abysses of the human soul, lyrically, auditory as well as visually.

INDIAN - FROM ALL PURITY
Chicago's blackened noise nihilists INDIAN return with their fourth full length album. On 'From All Purity' they take their infamously hateful aggression to new levels of despair. Now augmented with an even keener sense of harsh noise, all the trademark elements of Indian's sound have been refined to reach new lows of powerful and punishing anguish. This is the opposite of easy listening. For fans of Grief, Eyehategod, High On Fire and the like.

Image

MCKAGAN, DUFF -'S LOADED- - SICK (2LP)
'Sick' is the second studio album by American hard rock band Loaded. Originally from 2009.

MERKSTAVE - MERKSTAVE
Known and whorshipped for their unique brand of doom and black metal, US outfit MERKSTAVE's s/t album is an intense offering of cosmic funerary drone. Recorded, mastered and produced completely inanalogue. Released as a single pocket black vinyl edition with art by BENJAMIN A. VIERLING.

Image

MOTORHEAD - MOTORHEAD
FANTASTIC 180 GRAM GREY VINYL GATEFOLD RE-ISSUE OF MOTORHEAD'S STUNNING DEBUT ALBUM. On April 1, 1977, after a few unsuccessful years of toiling in obscurity hoping for a record deal, Motorhead decided to perform their last show at the London Marquee Club. They asked Ted Carroll, head of Chiswick Records, to record the show for posterity. Instead of recording it, he offered a chance for the band to record a single. This being their last chance, they recorded 13 backing tracks in just two days, impressing Carroll enough for him to offer them further studio time to complete the tracks. Eight of these tracks were released on this eponymous debut album. The album did well enough to ensure the band would remain together, but it was their next album, 1979's Overkill, that was their real breakthrough. The band had earlier recorded their debut album On Parole for United Artists Records, but the record company was stalling on its release, unsure of its commercial viability. For this album, the band chose to re-record that album in almost its entirety, only "Fools" and "Leaving Here" weren't re-recorded at these sessions. In addition two new self-penned compositions were added in "White Line Fever" and "Keep Us on the Road", as well as a cover of "Train Kept A-Rollin'". The title track "Motorhead" coupled with the non-album track "City Kids" for release as 7" and 12" singles. The four remaining tracks from the session were shelved until 1980, when they were released on the Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers EP. Later the B-side and the EP were added as bonus tracks to remastered CD releases. The sleeve artwork featured War-Pig, the fanged face that became an icon of the band, created by artist Joe Petagno.

Image

MOTORHEAD - WHAT'S WORDSWORTH?
Fantastic 180 GRAM clear vinyl gatefold re-issue of Motorheads stunning live album. What's Wordsworth? is a Motrhead live album recorded in 1978, but not released until 1983.

Image

NAZARETH - BOOGALOO (2LP)
Reissue of their 20th studio album, orignally from 1998.

Image

OATH - THE OATH
To master the dark and wring compelling creativity from its densest shadows requires vision, belief and, perhaps most importantly, a dash of synchronicity. These are all qualities that ooze from every pore of the debut album by The Oath. A band forged around the fizzing, feral chemistry between Swedish guitarist Linnea Olsson and German vocalist Johanna Sadonis, The Oath represent the wild magic that erupts when two blazing souls collide and fate is sent veering off course by sheer strength of the human will. This is heavy metal at its most mercurial and intuitive. Veering from the strident grooves and shimmering menace of opener 'All Must Die' to the breakneck, Luciferian clatter of 'Black Rainbow' and on to the spine-tingling grandeur and grime of epic closer 'Psalm 7', The Oath is anything but just another addition to the modern pseudo-occult rock canon. Instead, it is an extraordinary glimpse into its creators overpowering charisma and chemistry and a thrillingly, hyper-nourishing dose of authentic, 21st century heavy metal sorcery. With input from In Solitude's Henke Palm - who contributes some improvised Voivod-style solos, according to Linnea, and logo designed courtesy of Watain's Erik Danielson, this is an album that exudes ageless style and irresistible substance: a potent antidote to the flimsy fripperies of the modern age.

Image

RAINBOW - ROCKPALAST 1995: BLACK MASQUERADE (3LP)
Live in Germany 1995. 3LP set.

Image

TESTAMENT - LIVE IN LONDON (2LP)
Recorded May 8, 2005 at Koko, London, UK. Features the original Testament line up of Chuck Billy, Greg Christian, Louie Clemente, Eric Peterson, and Alex Skolnick, although John Tempesta drums from the beginning of the show up to 'Trial By Fire'. Tempesta is then replaced by Clemente for the remainder of the show, giving the audience a reunited "classic" Testament lineup.

Image

WHEEL - ICARUS (ORANGE)
Pressed on orange vinyl in an edition of 350 copies, presented in a gatefold sleeve, and including an A2 poster. In 2010 Wheel released their self-titled debut album to high acclaim from both fans and press. Their melancholic, traditional style was appreciated by followers of both contemporary Doom Metal acts as well as the old school faction favouring classic '80s material. On their much anticipated sophomore album 'Icarus' the band fine-tuned their songwriting and empasized their unique qualities without neglecting to pay tribute to those great bands that came before them. Thus, fans of Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Saint Vitus, Solitude Aeturnus, Count Raven, Reverend Bizarre, Pentagram, Lamented Souls or Tristitia are encouraged to check out 'Icarus'.

NEW ARRIVALS - 2014.06

AXESLASHER/CALL OF THE VOID - SPLIT 7"
Two merciless bands from Denver, together on 7-inches of orange vinyl! Side A of the 7-inch features AXESLASHER's thrashing single 'The Drifters Warning', while on Side B we hear Relapse recording artist CALL OF THE VOID doing their smoldering cover of His Hero Is Gone's 'Headless, Heartless', which was previously only available in Japan. Sonic hostility to the extreme!

Image

BLACKFINGER - BLACKFINGER
Following his departure as longtime vocalist for Chicago doom legends TROUBLE in 2008, Eric Wagner promptly removed himself from the spotlight and began intently writing new material of a more personal nature. Those writing sessions would yield the musical inspiration for BLACKFINGER. Described adamantly as a "band" and not a "project", BLACKFINGER began to take shape as a unit in 2009, with Wagner recruiting hometown friends Rico Bianchi and Doug Hakes on guitars, Ben Smith on bass, and Larry Piatz on drums. Over the course of the next four years, the group would meticulously craft and commit eleven tracks to tape. These tracks, with their many peaks and valleys of heaviness and melancholy, along with Wagner's signature vocals, would ultimately become the self titled debut album. 'Blackfinger' will mark the singer's first recorded output since TROUBLE's 2007 release 'Simple Mind Condition'. Between 2010 and 2012, BLACKFINGER would find themselves playing a handful of high profile hometown shows in the Chicago area to great acclaim, and Dark Star Records would tease the crowds further with their release of the band's "All The Leaves Are Brown" single. Add two triumphant appearances at Milwaukee's Days Of The Doomed Fest I & II, and interest in BLACKFINGER quickly became a major buzz in the doom metal scene and beyond. In August of 2013, fans of Eric and BLACKFINGER were put on notice that it would not be much longer before the debut record would be unleashed.

FU MANCHU - NO ONE RIDES FOR FREE
A great 20th anniversary gatefold reissue of the band's 1994 Bongload album, long out of print!

MOONBOW - THE END OF TIME
Whiskey-soaked stoner rock from the hills of Kentucky. Features David McElfresh of HANK3, Steve Earle of AFGHAN WHIGS and HERMANO, and guest vocals on the track 'Take It For Granted' by John Garcia of KYUSS. Comes on cherry red translucent vinyl.

IN SOLITUDE - SERPENTS ARE RISING/MOTHER OF MERCY
Limited 300 copies. "I love their 'Mother of Mercy' version. I wish we sounded that good!" - Eerie Von, Samhain. A: Serpents Are Rising B: Mother of Mercy.

Image

HOODED MENACE - LABYRINTH OF CARRION BREEZE
DOOMENTIA and HOODED MENACE go back a long way. Ever since the label offered to re-release the band's sole demo 'The Eyeless Horde' as a classy 7-inch back in 2008, the two parties have worked together on split releases (with ANIMA MORTE, COFFINS, ASPHYX or HORSE LATITUDES) and deluxe vinyl reissues of their first two albums and there's plenty more to come! This early 2014 release features some of their heaviest work yet. 'Labyrinth Of Carrion Breeze' is the first title to feature the band's altered line-up, which now includes Teemu Hannonen who used to play with the band's leader Lasse Pyykko in the mighty PHLEGETHON, back in the early '90s. Whereas the epic 'Chasm Of The Wraith' is inspired by the classic 1970s horror movie 'Cry Of The Banshee' (starring Vincent Price) and features as a guest Pia from SERPENT OMEGA on backing vocals, 'The Creeping Flesh' is based on the equally stunning motion picture of the same title. Recorded in their hometown of Joensuu, Finland and mixed in Stockholm, this release comes with colourful yet disturbing artwork as the finishing touch.

Image

USURPRESS/ BENT SEA - SPLIT
This release sees Swedish D-beat/crust masters USURPRESS exploring new and surprising territories. The over 7-minute 'A Tidal Wave Of Fire' is their first genuinely epic recording and all in all the music is heavier than ever and it really sounds unlike anything else they've done before. BENT SEA's contributions to this split are equally impressive. Their recordings presented here will take the listeners back to the glorious days of early EARACHE classics like TERRORIZER or EXTREME NOISE TERROR, yet with a modern edge.

AMAROK/HELL - SPLIT LP
Following Pesanta Urfolk's highly acclaimed vinyl release of HELL's trilogy, the label returns with a split LP uniting those doom/drone giants with one of the subgenre's best-kept secrets, AMAROK.

DARK FOREST - THE AWAKENING
Dark Forest was forged in the Black Country, England by guitarist Christian Horton. For just over a decade they have been delivering their uniquely rousing, defiant heavy metal to the world. In 2012 Dark Forest recruited the outstanding vocalist Josh Winnard as their new front man and shortly afterwards also gained the incredible talents of guitarist Pat Jenkins. With this new line up, the band immediately began writing fresh material and entered the recording studio in June 2013 to produce their third album, 'The Awakening'.

Image

DEEP MACHINE - RISE OF THE MACHINE (BLACK)
Edition on black vinyl (150 copies) with a lyric sheet and presented in a heavy cardboard cover.

GERYON - GERYON
Using only bass guitar and drums, Nick McMaster and Lev Weinstein (both from KRALLICE) deliver intricate, abrasive death metal with a touch of melody. Includes download.

GLOW GOD - HOUSE OF DISTRACTIONS
Beaming out of Oklahoma City, GLOW GOD is here and hopefully the world is ready. After a slew of demo tapes, 'House Of Distractions' marks the debut official release from these sludged out grunge-worshipping freaks. The record is a journey starting hard and fast then venturing down paths of heavy rock jams. Prepare yourself, you might break a sweat.

HELL - III
The awaited third installment in the trilogy from Oregon doom lords HELL is now available on vinyl. Strictly limited to 472 copies, pressed on black/blood-red vinyl and including a large poster and insert.

Image

HEXIS - ABALAM
Landing by surprise from the cold and distant lands of Denmark, HEXIS deliver their first full-length record 'Abalam', following a handful of singles and splits. Directly inspired by the darkness of black metal and the brutality of punk/HC, these five Danish dudes offer us thirteen tunes under the signs of monolithism and dedication. The album title refers to the Prince of Hell and his female face, all the lyrics fit the demonic concept. The record is released on digipack CD (1.000 copies) and on vinyl (1.000 copies, 300 copies on clear with black streaks and 700 copies on black) co-released with HALO OF FLIES RECORDS (USA).

Image

HOLOCAUST - (BLACK) LIVE (HOT CURRY & WINE) (+7")
HOLOCAUST Live! 'Hot Curry & Wine'. Edition of 150 LP's on black vinyl, with a gatefold cover and a bonus 7-inch in a separate picture sleeve.

Image

IMPURE WILHELMINA - BLACK HONEY (2LP)
Presented with beautiful artwork, this is a double 12-inch vinyl with the CD-version included. The fifth album for these Swiss post-HC heroes offers raw beauty and tortured black emotion.

Image

KUOLEMANLAAKSO - TULIJOUTSEN (BLACK)
Gatefold, black vinyl , limited 350 copies. The highly acclaimed Finnish death doomsters return with their most ambitious work to date. Produced once again by the Triptykon and Dark Fortress guitarist V. Santura, Kuolemanlaaksos sophomore album "Tulijoutsen" ("The Fire Swan") explores unconquered grounds of heaviness, and pushes the band into a new level of melancholy. The 50-minute magnum opus was inspired by the grandeur of the Finnish forests, serene eeriness of the lakes and early 1900s poetry and folklore. Thus it was only natural for the band to live the lyrics, so to speak, and isolate themselves in a secluded location in the middle of the woods, and capture the true essence of the songs on hard disk.

Image

LOINEN - LOINEN
Finland's nastiest sludge lowlifes LOINEN return with a second full length, following the debut on Streaks Records in 2007. As usual, availability is extremely limited, and there will be no other formats than vinyl.

Image

LURK - KALDERA
The four Finnish individuals hidden behind that ugly and ferocious monster known as LURK don't like tags. Not only because it would raise the impression that they were actually looking at other bands for inspiration, but also because it would restrict them too much. Sure thing, the words 'dark' and 'fucking heavy' are the most common descriptions for their music, followed by 'doom', 'sludge', a.s.o.

Image

MANTAR - DEATH BY BURNING (BLACK)
Gatefold, black vinyl version. Recorded earlier in 2013 and titled "Death By Burning", the album is a raw, self produced and 100% DIY display of power. The half German, half Turkish band has existed for less than a year and released one limited run 7" - probably sold out by the time you read this. MANTAR manages to sound heavier than most five piece bands you may know, in spite of the fact that no bass guitar was used on this record. Just drums and guitar set for destruction. Forget about Rock 'n Roll. This will hurt. Flogging beats and blackened melodies meet feedback orgies and doom mayhem. Early Melvins, Motorhead, Darkthrone. You name it. Don't call it sludge though. Everything as black as possible. A soundtrack for the final battle.

Image

MARCH 15 - OUR LOVE BECOMES A FUNERAL PYRE
Although known for wider audience as the founder and the main song writer of REVEREND BIZARRE, THE PURITAN and OPIUM WARLORDS, and the vocalist of SPIRITUS MORTIS, AZRAEL RISING and THTIPORTTI, Sami Albert "Witchfinder" Hynninen has his roots in the most extreme, experimental, and avantgarde areas of music. The original recording sessions of the two compositions, 'OUR LOVE BECOMES A FUNERAL PYRE' and 'NO LOVE LOST', meant to constitute the MARCH 15 EP, took place on Valentine's Day, 2004, in the suffocative atmosphere of a northern Finnish town Tornio (birthplace of a legendary HC band TERVEET KADET), with Vesa Karppinen of local heavy metal band FALL OF THE IDOLS. The EP was not released until 2008, and even then only in Chile, as a poor quality CD version. Now, exactly 10 years after the original sessions, this material finally gets a proper release through Svart Records, remastered and expanded with a whole B-side of new exclusive material, written and recorded in 2010 and 2013.

MESSENGER - ILLUSORY BLUES (BLACK)
Gatefold, booklet, black vinyl. MESSENGER (UK) is a musical troupe from London formed in the spring of 2012 by Khaled Lowe and Barnaby Maddick. They booked a session with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios that gave birth to their debut album, Illusory Blues: a cosmic ode to the forces of nature and the inevitable cycle of life. To cite musical influences would be futile. The musicians had made their names with bands in scenes as far apart as hardcore punk, black metal, and ambient music. Tonally, one might recall finding oneself in the same "space" occupied by other architects of sound such as Ulver, The Beatles, Swans, or Pink Floyd. But the stream of sound that emanates from the source of Illusory Blues is a heaving mass of organic richness, brimmed with intricate sounds that acknowledge the original fathers of experimentation but look forward in creating something new and unique. They dwell equally in the earthly realm of folk music and in the celestial void of progressive psychedelia, but have chanced upon a sound and an experience that sounds like no other.

SINK - FOG & DOMINANCE
Limited 300 copies. Finnish underground psychedelic black-drone nomads lead us down a spiral path to nothingness. A strange, choking mixture of choral black metal guitars, deep vocal hum and melting electronics over hypnotic, cavernous drumming. A genre-breaking trip to black ecstasy.

Image

WOODS OF DESOLATION - AS THE STARS (BLACK)
Limited 333 copies black vinyl. LP's come with gatefolds, A2 poster and logo sticker. 'As The Stars' is the new album from Woods Of Desolation, by now probably Australia's premier depressive black metal band. On this 3rd album, mastermind D. on guitars, with the help of session members (Vlad from Drudkh on drums, Luke Mills from Nazxul and Pestilential Shadows on bass, and Old from Drohtnung on vocals), continues the musical direction which was begun on 'Toward The Depths' and refined on the very successful 'Torn Beyond Reason'. Fans of the band will be pleased to hear that the main ingredients as well as the songwriting are similar to those on W.O.D.'s excellent sophomore album - haunting, melodic and intense depressive black metal, delving further into melancholy and the essence of personal expression through music, which may occasionally remind the listener of another of Australia's finest, AUSTERE, as well as ALCEST, and perhaps 'Brave Murder Day'-era KATATONIA.

YOB - CATHARSIS
Here's a long-awaited deluxe vinyl reissue of the most highly regarded album from one of the leading bands in doom metal. Includes a download code.

EXISTANCE - EXISTANCE (RED)
Limited to 100 x red vinyl, 425gsm heavy cardboard cover, cardboard lyric insert. Existance is quite a young band, formed in 2008 in a small town called Clermont, situated approximately 60 kilometres north of Paris. Although its not a big place by any stretch of the imagination, Clermont is home to quite a few local metal bands (such as Arès, Irminsul, Gencode, Orkaan and Dead N Crazy). The group's founder, guitarist and vocalist Julian Izard, is the son of Didier Izard, who played for French metal legends H-Bomb. Band: Julian Izard - vocals, guitar Fred Labasque - guitar Tom Drouin - bass Laurent Louvrier - drums. Tracks: - Son of Wolf - Diary of Eternity - Soul Warrior - Kill Me Madness - Innocent - Dark Day - Waverly Hills - Existance.

INCARCERATION - SACRIFICE
INCARCERATION was formed 2010 in Brazil and moved to the north of Germany to spread the unholy plague inspired by the fastest riffs of Nihilist, Repugnant, early Sepultura or Sadistic Intent. Classic necrotic death metal straight to the bone with lyrics about existence, suffering and death. Limited to 376 copies on black vinyl.

BONGRIPPER - HIPPIE KILLER (2LP)
Very limited edition double-LP, and the few available copies are selling fast! 'Hippie Killer' is so good, you'll want to develop a massive marijuana habit right away and spend your days lurking through the ten part expedition of doom laden valleys and psychedelic post rock peaks, bong in hand. After the intro piece, Bongripper literally rips your head off and dumps all sort of riff heavy hallucinogens right down your neck. I kid you not!

Image

ESCARNIUM - EXCRUCIATING EXISTENCE
Escarnium is a death metal band from Salvador (Brazil). This is their first full-length, which until now only was available on CD. Here it's on 180-gram vinyl, with remastered sound and new artwork! Limited to 197 copies on black vinyl.

FREE NELSON MANDOOMJAZZ - SHAPE OF DOOMJAZZ TO COME/SAXOPHONE GIGANTICUS
Two EP's on one album! This ambiguous instrumental power trio from Scotland draws from Slayer, Megadeth and Napalm Death on one hand, and on the other from such avant garde jazz icons as saxophonists Marshall Allen, Albert Ayler and Peter Brotzmann. This music will confound jazz critics as it challenges the thrash metal and grindcore community.

Image

MONOLORD - EMPRESS RISING (2LP)
LIMITED EDITION 100 COPIES EXCLSUIVE COLOUR FOR CLEAR SPOT Sweden's psychedelic doom band, Monolord, releases its first full length 'Empress Rising' via Easy Rider Records. The five-song album clocks in at almost 50 minutes of skull crushing heavy grooves and heavy guitars that summon the spirits of Norse gods when played at loud volumes. Monolord is for more than just doom-metal fanatics; this is an epic record for all fans of guitar driven rock and roll, stoner rock, and heavy riffs. 'Empress Rising' has all of the flavours of an iconic doom record and follows in the footsteps of Sleep, Holy Mountain, Pallbearer's 'Sorrow and Extinction', Electric Wizard's 'Witchcult Today' with melodic vocals and harmonies that are super psychedelic and easy to sing along to.

NEGATIVE STANDARDS/WHITEHORSE - SPLIT
Two of the heaviest bands around team up for one ear damaging split. Australia's WHITEHORSE once more deliver ultrabrutal sludge/doom with one of the sickest vocalists around, think a sludgier Corrupted. NEGATIVE STANDARDS from the States are all over the place, mixing aggressive HC/power violence with mean sludge and even some black metal. Mastered by JAMES PLOTKIN with artwork by KEVIN GAN YUEN (Sutekh Hexen).

NIGHT - NIGHT
High level hard-rock in a melodic late '70s style. Partly due to the excellent female vocals, Night is often being compared to prime Heart.

Image

SHRINE (USA) - BLESS OF
So-Cal shit-kickers THE SHRINE return with their album 'BLESS OFF', a blazing hell ride featuring 11 rip-roarin' party rock anthems guaranteed to destroy your ears! Undoubtedly one of America's hottest underground bands, THE SHRINE plays loud, heavy rock'n'roll fueled by cheap beer and bad acid that combines the hook-laden appeal of '70s garage rock and gritty '80s HC with a skate punk energy and attitude resulting in a sound the trio describes as "psychedelic violence".

INCARCERATION was formed 2010 in Brazil and moved to the north of Germany to spread the unholy plague inspired by the fastest riffs of Nihilist, Repugnant, early Sepultura or Sadistic Intent. Classic necrotic death metal straight to the bone with lyrics about existence, suffering and death. Limited to 376 copies on black vinyl.

MESSENGER - SOMNILOQUIST (BLACK)
Limited to 500 copies black vinyl. A prelude to the band's grand album release in March, we present Somniloquist by Messenger on limited edition seven inch vinyl. The flipside features a breathtaking rendition of the song Pictures of Sadness, originally performed by Eduardo Bort on his eponymous 1975 album. The song is exclusive to this 7". MESSENGER (UK) is a musical troupe from London formed in the spring of 2012 by Khaled Lowe and Barnaby Maddick. They booked a session with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios that gave birth to their debut album, Illusory Blues: a cosmic ode to the forces of nature and the inevitable cycle of life. To cite musical influences would be futile. The musicians had made their names with bands in scenes as far apart as hardcore punk, black metal, and ambient music. Tonally, one might recall finding oneself in the same "space" occupied by other architects of sound such as Ulver, The Beatles, Swans, or Pink Floyd. But the stream of sound that emanates from the source of Illusory Blues is a heaving mass of organic richness, brimmed with intricate sounds that acknowledge the original fathers of experimentation but look forward in creating something new and unique. They dwell equally in the earthly realm of folk music and in the celestial void of progressive psychedelia, but have chanced upon a sound and an experience that sounds like no other.

BABYLON WHORES - (BLACK) PRIDE OF THE DAMNED (6LP)
A carefully curated box set containing all the available Babylon Whores material ranging from obscure demos and compilation appearances to the three-full length albums on six slabs of pitch-black records. Completing the box is a 100-page book with many rare photographs including unused promo shots, interviews, and an in-depth band history by Mikko Mattila of Isten zine documenting the entirety of the unusual and rather colourful career of the band all the way to their legendary secret gigs in later years. Many contemporaries, label-mates and folks otherwise connected with Babylon Whores chip in with their reminiscences and assessments of the Babylonian legacy, including current and ex-members of bands such as Mayhem, The Black League, Sunn O))), Hexvessel, Endvra, Saturnalia Temple, Therion, Deathchain, & more. The box also includes the classic Cold Heaven band photo as a poster.

Image

CONVULSE - EVIL PREVAILS (BLACK)
Finnish death metal quartet CONVULSE are commonly known as one of the most classic bands from the first wave of Finnish death metal, with the debut album World Without God being one of the most collectible items of the era. But this past January's comeback EP Inner Evil, recorded after an 18-year break, proved that the group can still cut it. CONVULSE spent the whole of August locked away in an old-fashioned analog studio, recording what was to become Evil Prevails. A fascinating combination of old-school death metal, lightning-fast thrashing parts, some blastbeats here and there, and even ultra-slow doom elements. The CONVULSE of the year 2013 is heavier and meaner than ever before. This album is a rebirth as much as it is continuation of the old-school spirit.

DISEASE CONCEPT - YOUR DESTROYER
Strictly limited to 300 copies, all on blue translucid wax with red splattering. Artwork by Scott Stearns. This band features Jesse Kling (Vocals - Sollubi), Dave Szulkin (Guitar - Blood Farmers), Tommy Southard (Guitar - Solace), Rob Hultz (Bass - Trouble, Solace) and Corey Bing (Drums - Fistula, Accept Death). On offer are seven tracks in the vein of Eyehategod, Blood Farmers, Judas Priest and Kiss.

Image

DOPETHRONE - III
Limited vinyl pressing of the third album by DOPETHRONE! For the uninitiated, Dopethrone play the classic kind of sludge, evil as Satan himself, dripping blood and black bile, while it claws at your flesh from within a cloud of weed smoke and burning homes. If anything 'III' hits harder than 'Dark Foil'. The riffs are monumental monsters of distortion and grime. It's like the buzz of a thousand hornets inside an empty skull.

Image

DYNAMITE - LOCK N LOAD (BLACK)
If you ever wondered how the follow up album to 'Highway To Hell' should sound like, look no further ! If Bon Scott would be alive, AC/DC would have delivered this album. It oozes with fat Angus Young'ish riffs and a Bon Scott-like voice. This is high energy classic rock, comparable with AC/DC, KROKUS and ROSE TATTOO, and easily outrocking new bands like AIRBORNE and BONAFIDE. This is the band that got chased by the police force in Sweden after an imaginary bank robbery some folks thought was real!

Image

ESCARNIUM - EXCRUCIATING EXISTENCE
Escarnium is a death metal band from Salvador (Brazil). This is their first full-length, which until now only was available on CD. Here it's on 180-gram vinyl, with remastered sound and new artwork! Limited to 197 copies on black vinyl.

Image

KUOLEMANLAAKSO - TULIJOUTSEN (BLACK)
Gatefold, black vinyl , limited 350 copies. The highly acclaimed Finnish death doomsters return with their most ambitious work to date. Produced once again by the Triptykon and Dark Fortress guitarist V. Santura, Kuolemanlaaksos sophomore album "Tulijoutsen" ("The Fire Swan") explores unconquered grounds of heaviness, and pushes the band into a new level of melancholy. The 50-minute magnum opus was inspired by the grandeur of the Finnish forests, serene eeriness of the lakes and early 1900s poetry and folklore. Thus it was only natural for the band to live the lyrics, so to speak, and isolate themselves in a secluded location in the middle of the woods, and capture the true essence of the songs on hard disk.

Image

LOINEN - LOINEN
Sludge metal has been experiencing a resurgence in Finland over the past few years, with bands like Fleshpress, Frogskin, Stumm and Hebosagil. The grittiest, nastiest and most obscure of the bunch, however, is Loinen, hailing from the dirtiest ghettos of Karjaa, in downtuned wasteland of southern Finland. With more focus on the sludge than the metal, Loinen have the habit of churning out untitled releases primarily on tape and vinyl. This untitled album was recorded in early 2012 and will see the bright light of day on Valentine's Day 2014. Presented by Svart Records, the work is available on 12 inch vinyl only, without a download card, and limited to 425 copies.

Image

MANTAR - DEATH BY BURNING (BLACK)
Gatefold, black vinyl version. Recorded earlier in 2013 and titled "Death By Burning", the album is a raw, self produced and 100% DIY display of power. The half German, half Turkish band has existed for less than a year and released one limited run 7" - probably sold out by the time you read this. MANTAR manages to sound heavier than most five piece bands you may know, in spite of the fact that no bass guitar was used on this record. Just drums and guitar set for destruction. Forget about Rock 'n Roll. This will hurt. Flogging beats and blackened melodies meet feedback orgies and doom mayhem. Early Melvins, Motorhead, Darkthrone. You name it. Don't call it sludge though. Everything as black as possible. A soundtrack for the final battle.

MARCH 15 - OUR LOVE BECOMES A FUNERAL PYRE
Although known for wider audience as the founder and the main song writer of REVEREND BIZARRE, THE PURITAN and OPIUM WARLORDS, and the vocalist of SPIRITUS MORTIS, AZRAEL RISING and THTIPORTTI, Sami Albert "Witchfinder" Hynninen has his roots in the most extreme, experimental, and avantgarde areas of music. The original recording sessions of the two compositions, 'OUR LOVE BECOMES A FUNERAL PYRE' and 'NO LOVE LOST', meant to constitute the MARCH 15 EP, took place on Valentine's Day, 2004, in the suffocative atmosphere of a northern Finnish town Tornio (birthplace of a legendary HC band TERVEET KADET), with Vesa Karppinen of local heavy metal band FALL OF THE IDOLS. The EP was not released until 2008, and even then only in Chile, as a poor quality CD version. Now, exactly 10 years after the original sessions, this material finally gets a proper release through Svart Records, remastered and expanded with a whole B-side of new exclusive material, written and recorded in 2010 and 2013.

Image

MORDICUS - DANCES FROM LEFT (+7"/BLACK)
This official 20th anniversary release marks the vinyl debut of Mordicus' debut album 'Dances From Left', originally release by Thrash Records on CD in 1993. As an added bonus the package also features an exact replica of the band's debut 7" EP 'Three Way Dissection' from 1992.

Image

NIGHTWISH - OVER THE HILLS AND FAR AWAY (2LP)
On 180-gram audiophile vinyl! Finnish symphonic Metal giants Nightwish released the 'Over The Hills And Far Away' EP in 2001, when the band was still conquering stages all over the world with original singer Tarja Turunen. It made a big impact upon its release. The EP was released during an intensive tour schedule following their success albums 'Oceanborn' and 'Wishmaster'. The title track is a cover version of Gary Moore's original song. Included is a selection of eight fine live performances by the band, recorded in 2000 in Tampere, Finland. Two live tracks have never been issued on vinyl before ('10th Man Down' and the title track)! This is an edition of 1500 copies on solid blue vinyl! Each copy is individually numbered. The D-side features a beautiful etch.

Image

REVEREND BIZARRE - SO LONG SUCKERS (BLACK) (4LP)
Reverend Bizarre's final opus is a 130 minute juggernaut, thought by many as impossible to fit on vinyl. Well, you thought wrong. Mastered under the supervision of Albert Witchfinder by Joona Lukala, this four LP package presents the work cut on eight sides of 12 inch vinyl. The set comes with an expanded 20 page booklet and a poster, all packaged in a heavy duty gold foil stamped box.

A great release of technical death metal from Italy, presented on a Double-LP.

Image

IRON CLAW - IRON CLAW (2LP)
2LP has heavy duty gatefold cover double album with poster and insert. Re-mastered for vinyl release. Early 70s underground hard rock recordings from this Scottish group who were stomping around the UK with the likes of Black Sabbath, Hackensack, Pink Fairies, Juicy Lucy and others from the time, but never released a proper album. In the beginning, Iron Claw probably became the world's first Black Sabbath tribute band, as they incorporated the entire first Black Sabbath LP and single into their set! This collection of sixteen original studio tracks documents their existence from 1970 thru 1974 and features extensive liner notes, lyrics and photos, including a poster and insert! For fans of Tear Gas, Leaf Hound, Jerusalem, Ancient Grease, Toad, Incredible Hog, Elias Hulk, etc!

EXPECTED - 2014.09

ARCHGOAT/SURRENDER OF DIVINITY - ANGELSLAYING CHRISTBEHEADING
The united force of ultimate BLACK fucking METAL worship! Offering the soundboard live recordings from both legendary underground hordes, recorded blood-red and raw from the God Beheading Live Ritual 2013 in Thailand. On offer are nine quick, Christ-defiling tracks from ARCHGOAT and three blitzed, blasphemous ones from SURRENDER OF DIVINITY, all totaling absolute desecration and destruction. Limited to 1.000 LPs.

Image

ARCHSPIRE - LUCID COLLECTIVE (RED)
Limited 250 copies transparent red. Canadas ARCHSPIRE unleash an insane attack of blistering technical death metal on 'The Lucid Collective'. Guitars shred with fury, and vicious vocals swarm over whirlwind drum work in the band's potent display of 21st century extremity. More than just a collection of chops and blast beasts, the albums eight tracks showcase a fast-rising band with supreme mastery of dynamics going hand in hand with their aggression. 'The Lucid Collective' is a definitive statement of intent by one of death metal's most exciting new bands. Recommended if you like: OBSCURA, NECROPHAGIST, GORGUTS, BEHEMOTH, BEYOND CREATION, GNOSTIC, CRYPTOPSY, IMMOLATION.

CANNABIS CORPSE - BENEATH GROW LIGHTS THOU SHALT RISE
Following in the tradition laid down by their earlier releases, each song on the record is inspired by a classic death metal track. This time around MORBID ANGEL and DEICIDE are getting the Cannabis treatment. Coloured vinyl and including download!

Image

DEATH MECHANISM - TWENTY FIRST CENTURY
'Twenty-First Century' is the 2014 release from Italian thrashers DEATH MECHANISM. True to the band's name, the album contains a lot of dark themes, but mostly it's just a frantic and fast foray into the world of thrash. DEATH MECHANISM are definitely on the SLAYER end of the thrash scale. It's all extremely fast, and pretty brutal, and that includes the vocals from Pozza.

Image

EYEHATEGOD - PREACHING THE ENDTIME MESSAGE
EYEHATEGOD compilation featuring 2 alternative versions, 3 tracks from split EPs, 2 live in Japan tracks and 3 new tracks recorded in march 2005. Track listing: 1.

Turn Troubled Tables (new track recorded 3-10-05).

GRIND, JOEL - THE YELLOWGOAT SESSIONS
Ten tracks of raw and fuzzed out rock & roll/metal/punk in the vein of the first BATHORY album, MOTÖRHEAD, and fairly reminiscent of the demo days of TOXIC HOLOCAUST, specifically 'Critical Mass'. If you are looking for over-produced shit that passes as metal today, this is NOT for you!

Image

MACABRE - DAHMER (2LP)
In a catalogue rich with such classics as 'Gloom', 'Murder Metal' and especially 'Sinister Slaughter', it was 'Dahmer' with which MACABRE truly transcended their genre and especially their patented, highly individual sound. Released as the new millennium kicked off, 'Dahmer' saw Macabre tackle their most ambitious project yet: an entire 26(!)-track album lyrically/conceptually devoted to one of the world's most notorious serial killers, Jeffrey Dahmer. Reissue on couloured vinyl double-LP, presented in gatefold jackets.

PROFANATICA - THY KINGDOM CUM
Profaners of the pure, defilers of Dog's creation, and fornicators upon the altar, PROFANATICA return with their most vile and virulent creation yet, 'Thy Kingdom Cum'. As one of the earliest American black metal bands, during the dark 'n' bloody days of the early 1990s, Profanatica set out upon a course of utter blasphemy and barbaric primitivism. Tense, veritgo-inducing riffing from Gelso malforms minds while Ledney's charred-black throat vomits forth visions only Profanatica can create/desecrate.

Image

ROYAL HUNT - A LIFE TO DIE FOR
Masterpiece from one of the best class/symphonic acts ever ! Royal Hunt - "a life to die for" for the very 1st time on vinyl! Officially licensed by the band, this new opus comes in a limited hand-numbered edition in gatefold glossy cover and inner sheet! Undoubtely one of their best release! The trademark of the Danish act is remarkable in every song with absolutely heavenly melodies mixed to supreme taste for music binded to technical skills! If you know Royal Hunt you know what i am talking about! Songs like "hell comes down from heaven", "A bullet's tale", "running out of tears" and the title-track are already classics! There is nothing more to add: Royal Hunt marked the path of elegange in music since their very first speps and every album is better than its predecessor.

SATAN'S SATYRS - DIE DREAMING
Something sinister is looming in the mist - a ghastly three-headed apparition, equal parts riffage and rancour and fuelled by a steady diet of garage rock 7-inches played at 33RPM and horror movies watched at 5AM, the primeval force of Satan's Satyrs is returned to the earth to lay waste to everything in its path. Rising from the primordial ooze of Herndon, Virginia Satan's Satyrs hit the metal underground like a tidal wave of sulphur with their debut proper, 2012's 'Wild Beyond Belief'. This almighty assault, almost entirely the work of chief Satyr Clayton Burgess, was a harrowing blast of fuzz-drenched aggro - a clash of Venom-esque metalpunk squalor and in-the-red garage-rock dementia. This time around, the band set about expanding their sound, maintaining their trash-obsessed aesthetic whilst sharpening their songcraft to produce an album possessed of both mighty heaviosity and incisive hooks. Bolstered by roaring Hammond and percussive ornamentation that bring still more Hammer Horror atmosphere to the fray, 'Die Screaming' transcends the band's Black Sabbath, Stooges and Black Flag influences to arrive at a relentlessly gory and gung-ho assault on the senses. One minute, this terror-troupe are dishing out the rotten rock n'roll of 'One By One (They Die)' and 'Curse Of The Corpse', which stalk the Earth like the reanimated corpses of Budgie and Blue Oyster Cult records past. The next, on the jaw-dropping title-track, they're throwing Death SS, the Alice Cooper of 'Sick Things' and Scott Reagers-era Saint Vitus into a bubbling cauldron and standing well back. Yet at all times Satan's Satyrs gonzo attack is authentically red in both tooth and claw.

SEIROM - AND THE LIGHT SWALLOWED EVERYTHING (+CD)
LP+CD. SEIROM is about beauty and melancholy, the more beautiful aspects of life. SEIROM is about personal expression without boundaries, internal or external. SEIROM is about grand bombastic melody filtered through noise and black metal aesthetics. The marriage of wedding bells to blastbeats. About a certain feeling.a longing lost long ago. SEIROM is M.C De Jong, mastermind of Gnaw Their Tongues, ADERLATING and others, a stalwart of bleak and desolate music for many years. SEIROM sees a different side of De Jongs musical output, an outpouring of glorious light. And the light will swallow everything is Seiroms 2nd album after 1973, released on Aurora Borealis-label in 2012. If 80s 4AD-records would be transformed to the now they would sound like this. If Sofia Coppola would make Lost In Translation II this would be the soundtrack. This is a record that could only have been made NOW: it incorperates black metal, showgaze, post-rock, new wave and transforms those genres into one blissfull avalanche of sound. Mories, the evil mastermind behind such pseudonyms as Gnaw Their Tongues, Aderlating, De Magia Verterum, has worked the 10.000 hours on his music (probably twice). The time you need to get really good at something according to Malcolm Gladwell. And the light swallowed everything is the culmination of everything he has done the last 10 years.

WARLOCK - TRUE AS STEEL

AHAB - THE GIANT (2LP/PD)
AHAB braves the seas for a third time to deliver their unique brand of "nautik" doom metal to their fans and draw them down into the depths of the ocean and the human psyche. While the band's previous releases took on Herman Melville's Moby Dick, as well as the tragic fate of the crew on the whaling vessel "Essex", they now turn to Edgar Allan Poe's solitary novel The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket for inspiration. The story comes to life within the musical confines of "The Giant". The songs are long in duration and turn into miniature epic tales embellished by hypnotic and heavy doom riffs, brutal vocals, but also melodic moments that include clean vocal interludes. Those who chose to dive into this monolithic album will surely be rewarded with an extraordinary musical experience that will further confirm the band's top status.

Image

CONAN - BLOOD EAGLE
1 LP Gatefold Edition Ltd Ed Black Vinyl The English CONAN follow the ideals of their namesake and continue their path without compromises. The second album "Blood Eagle" is a Doom/Drone/Stoner Metal monument filled with monolithic riffs, hypnotic melodies, brutal drumming and an archaic atmosphere. Epic hymns (e.g. "Crown of Talons" or "Gravity Chasm") transport the listener directly onto blood-soaked battlefields. "Blood Eagle" has a unique and raw character that will enthrall fans of AHAB, EYEHATEGOD or SUNN O))) with the very first note. The wrath of CONAN is upon us! Caveman Battle Doom.

GRAND MAGUS - (BLACK) TRIUMPH AND POWER
Black vinyl in gatefold incl. poster. The Stockholm based trio has re-entered Studio Sweetspot in Halmstad right after finishing up demoing and a pre-production phase in early September 2013. For the best possible result GRAND MAGUS have once again engaged with Nico Elgstrand as a producer, who already had his hands on the controllers for The Hunt, as well as the engineering force of Staffan Karlsson, who has worked with ARCH ENEMY and has mixed the most recent record of SPIRITUAL BEGGARS. GRAND MAGUS was founded by JB Christofferson (vocals/guitars) and Mats "Fox" Skinner (bass) in 1996. Two years later, Fredrik "Trisse" Liefvendahl joined in on the drums and the first two demos were released. In November of 2001 the self-titled debut album - obviously inspired by the late creative period of bands such as BLACK SABBATH or DEEP PURPLE - was published on the European and US market. Monument (2003) and Wolfs Return (2005) followed, receiving but praiseful press reactions. On their fourth studio outcome, Iron Will (2008) GRAND MAGUS present a redefined style and grand expertise, still acknowledging their own roots, gaining perfect scores with the music press again and being entitled the soundcheck winner with German Metal Hammer.

HEXIS - ABALAM
Landing by surprise from the cold and distant lands of Denmark, HEXIS deliver their first full-length record 'Abalam', following a handful of singles and splits. Directly inspired by the darkness of black metal and the brutality of punk/HC, these five Danish dudes offer us thirteen tunes under the signs of monolithism and dedication. The album title refers to the Prince of Hell and his female face, all the lyrics fit the demonic concept. The record is released on digipack CD (1.000 copies) and on vinyl (1.000 copies, 300 copies on clear with black streaks and 700 copies on black) co-released with HALO OF FLIES RECORDS (USA).

REVEL IN FLESH/ GRAVE WAX - CORPUS OBSCURIA
Swedish sound ridden old school Death Metal from Germany versus cult death-metal guru?! Determined not to be left behind biting the dust, Germanys REVEL IN FLESH have exhumed an unreleased track taken from the recoding sessions of their acclaimed second album Manifested Darkness (Germany) released last year on FDA REKOTZ. "Corpus Vermis" is another glorious throwback to the days when Sunlight studio and ENTOMBED reigned supreme, yet with those youngsters own flair and melodic sense that really set them apart from the horde of Swedeath revivalists that had been sweeping mercifully the scene recently. GRAVE WAX isnt just another outlet for legendary former MASSACRE vocalist and one of death-metal original growler, Kam Lee but rather a unique occasion to team up with the Riddick brothers (including Mark, renowned graphic artist and responsible for this splits cover) to come up with their quite unique form of extreme music. That doesnt mean theyve forgotten their roots as besides a new, exclusive original ("Obscuria Darkness Enraptured"), theyre also covering here the mighty IMPETIGO by defiling their very own "Dis-orga-nized".

SWORD - HIDDEN MASTERS/ARCANE MONTANE (2X7")
A cool coloured vinyl double 7-inch featuring two tracks from their 'Apocyphon' album and two exclusive remixes done by DYLAN C.

SECT PIG - SLAVE DESTROYED
'Slave Destroyed' is the debut mini-LP released by the obscure and previously unheard of SECT PIG. Steeped in hallucinatory dissonance and unsettling imagery, the backbone of Sect Pig's sound is reminiscent of Von in its tendency toward hypnotic repetition and sinister chord progressions. Perhaps the most distinctive and pronounced element of the music, here, is the vocals.

YAUTJA - SONGS OF DESCENT
YAUTJA incorporates imperial sludge riffs à la Neurosis with grind, math, crust and more. You'd think a mish-mash of influences like that would be jarring, but the music feels a lot more organic than its description leads on. Yautya consists of members of COLISEUM, GNARWHAL, ALARAUNE, LEGION and more.

ABIGAIL - INTERCOURSE AND LUST
Japan's ABIGAIL has been a flagship band in the Nuclear War Now camp since the beginning of the label's existence. In the more than 20 years of Abigail's existence the band has undergone a noticeable stylistic evolution from sinister Yakuza Black Metal to the band's later period of sexualcoholic Street Metal Thrash. Dating from the '90s, 'Intercourse And Lust' has stood the test of time and is as relevant now as it was when it was initially released.

AC/DC - BALLBREAKER
Reissue on 180-gram vinyl.

ANATOMIA - DECAYING IN OBSCURITY (2LP)
ANATOMIA's death doom sound perfectly captures the cold immobile grip of mortal expiration. They evolved out of the decrepit corpus of TRANSGRESSOR, a band that is highly regarded yet rarely mentioned. DOUBLE-LP!

Image

BARBARIAN - FAITH EXTINGUISHER
Their 2012 split with BUNKER 66 predicted a change in approach, a direction which they continue here. Nevertheless, the seven tracks on 'Faith Extinguisher' are still 666% pure BARBARIAN. This album is a sermon of allegiance to ALL things metal the '80s way.

BEASTWARS - BLOOD BECOMES FIRE
On their first two releases, New Zealand's Beastwars have defined their concreted sludge riff fest with uncompromising metal richness. Opening for High on Fire and Kyuss, performing at Auckland's Big Day Out fest, and recently added as a finalist for the 2014 Taite Music Prize, Beastwars are not messing around on their quest for world domination. For fans of Mastodon, High on Fire, Unsane...

BESIEGED - VICTIMS BEYOND ALL HELP
'Victims Beyond All Help' is pure bludgeoning metal for fans of Beneath The Remains, Reign In Blood, Darkness Descends, and other uncompromising, furious albums that changed the face of the genre. Unavailable for way too long, this album finally gets an official release on vinyl. Features completely old school artwork painted by the legendary ED REPKA. Limited to 500 copies.

BLOODLET - LIVE ON WMFU-FM
RECORD STORE DAY 2014 RELEASE-FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED - Release of a rare live-on-air radio performance from 1995, before their landmark album 'Entheogen' was completed. Contains slightly different arrangements of their destined-to-be classic tracks, creative improvised interludes and an unreleased/unheard track entitled 'Canker'. Artwork from AARON TURNER.

CARNIFEX - (BLACK) DIE WITHOUT HOPE
'Die Without Hope' marks the long awaited return of Carnifex, with their fifth full-length album and Nuclear Blast debut. Here are 10 tracks and over 35 minutes of crushing metal that no fan of heavy music can deny. Recorded at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, FL and produced by the esteemed Mark Lewis (ARSIS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER, DEICIDE, SIX FEET UNDER), San Diego's finest metal export delivers an album that stands as a definitive cornerstone for modern death metal.

Image

DELAIN - THE HUMAN CONTRADICTION (2LP)
Double-LP on black vinyl. DELAIN will not only enthral symphonic metal fans with their fourth album 'The Human Contradiction', but also listeners new to the genre. Extremely catchy refrains, bewitching hooks and melodies, symphonic bombast and of course a good dose of Metal, that's how symphonic metal has to sound in 2014! Vocalist supreme Charlotte Wessels and her equally talented band of colleagues exceeded the highest expectations and have elevated the genre to a whole new level.

EXMORTUS - SLAVE TO THE SWORD
The Southern California quartet EXMORTUS -whose invigorating twin-guitar mix of neoclassical shred, Bay Area thrash, progressive death and traditional heavy metal has earned the group a devoted following in the Western U.S.- unleash their Prosthetic Records debut and third overall album 'Slave To The Sword'.

HIGH SPIRITS - YOU ARE HERE (BLACK)
Edition of 400 LP's on black vinyl, presented in a gatefold cover. It's surely no exaggeration to proclaim that Chicago's own 'High Spirits' are one of the hottest bands in contemporary metal. Now the time has come for the third studio album entitled 'You Are Here'. Nine timeless traditional metal songs played from the heart, full of power, passion and immortal hooks. All instruments were handled by Chris Black 'The Professor' himself.

KORGULL THE EXTERMINATOR - WAR OF THE VOIVODES (2LP)
A solid LP by the Spanish band operating heavily under the influcence of Voivod.

MOTORJESUS - ELECTRIC REVELATION
A rocking blend of headbanging riffs, huge choruses and the need to get into your ride and put the pedal to the metal.

MOURNING CLOAK - NO VISIBLE LIGHT

VARIOUS - UNDERGROUND NEVER DIES
Remember Death Metal, Speed Kills or Grindcrusher?! Those early sampler compilations gave many future giants early exposure but also gave the fans a first glance at how diverse and dynamic the metal scene was back in the day. The accompanying compilation to the Underground Never Dies! book has a different goal: if to those who discovered extreme metal through Facebook or Hot Topic- these band names mean nothing, the real diehards on the other hand will savor finding for the first time such revered acts as INCUBUS, NECROVORE, INVOCATOR or DR SHRINKER. Hailing from Denmark, Australia, Canada, Germany, Chile, the USA and France, these bands share the same burning passion for a metal that was raw, unbridled and vicious. Featuring only rare demo tracks recorded in the second half of the 80s and ranging from thrash (ARMOROS), proto-black metal (SLAUGHTER LORD, POISON) to classic death metal (INCUBUS) and even black/death (NECROVORE), this is THE sound of the underground as it was almost a quarter of a century ago. LP version contains twelve tracks of underground metal. Can you hear the roar of the underground, raging as if there were no tomorrow?

VERLAINES - JUVENILIA
Repress of this excellent compilation of the Verlaines' early '80s guitar pop singles and EP's.

VIOLATOR - SCENARIOS OF BRUTALITY
Fourth album from the Brazilian old school thrash kings! Presented in a high gloss jacket and featuring artwork from the great ANDREI BOUZIKOV. This pressing is limited to a single run of 1.000 copies.

NEW ARRIVALS - 2014.11

Image

HOODED MENACE - LABYRINTH OF CARRION BREEZE
DOOMENTIA and HOODED MENACE go back a long way. Ever since the label offered to re-release the band's sole demo 'The Eyeless Horde' as a classy 7-inch back in 2008, the two parties have worked together on split releases (with ANIMA MORTE, COFFINS, ASPHYX or HORSE LATITUDES) and deluxe vinyl reissues of their first two albums and there's plenty more to come! This early 2014 release features some of their heaviest work yet. 'Labyrinth Of Carrion Breeze' is the first title to feature the band's altered line-up, which now includes Teemu Hannonen who used to play with the band's leader Lasse Pyykko in the mighty PHLEGETHON, back in the early '90s. Whereas the epic 'Chasm Of The Wraith' is inspired by the classic 1970s horror movie 'Cry Of The Banshee' (starring Vincent Price) and features as a guest Pia from SERPENT OMEGA on backing vocals, 'The Creeping Flesh' is based on the equally stunning motion picture of the same title. Recorded in their hometown of Joensuu, Finland and mixed in Stockholm, this release comes with colourful yet disturbing artwork as the finishing touch.

Image

USURPRESS/ BENT SEA - SPLIT
This release sees Swedish D-beat/crust masters USURPRESS exploring new and surprising territories. The over 7-minute 'A Tidal Wave Of Fire' is their first genuinely epic recording and all in all the music is heavier than ever and it really sounds unlike anything else they've done before. BENT SEA's contributions to this split are equally impressive. Their recordings presented here will take the listeners back to the glorious days of early EARACHE classics like TERRORIZER or EXTREME NOISE TERROR, yet with a modern edge.

Image

CORSAIR - (BLACK) GHOSTS OF PROXIMA CENTAURI
350 x black vinyl, 425gsm heavy cardboard cover, insert Explorers of distant prog rock galaxies, pay attention, this one is for you! Corsair from Charlottesville, Virginia are a bunch of seasoned musicians who first found together through their love of great music, having played together not only in Mass Sabbath (guess what they might have been covering) but also in Mockstarballs, a band paying tribute to no-one less than the legendary Spinal Tap (!). Don't get me wrong here, the guys and gals of Corsair are far more than that: Each of them is or was an active member in several bands, those ranging from metal to indie pop. Current members in Corsair are Marie Landragin (guitars), Paul Sebring (guitars), Jordan Brunk (bass), and Aaron Lipscombe (drums). Vocal duties are shared between Paul, Marie and Jordan. Once the four had decided to form an original band, Corsair constantly worked on developing their very unique sound, infusing it with a great deal of Thin Lizzy-adoration and Iron Maiden-worshipping.

Image

KYLESA - ULTRAVIOLET (GREEN)
Shifting effortlessly from heavy hard rock riffs to punk-infused beats to even barren cold wave concoctions, 'Ultraviolet' sees the group progressing in fascinating ways. Transparent Green Gatefold LP (500 copies).

Image

LIVING DEATH - (BLACK) METAL REVOLUTION
150 x black vinyl, 425gsm heavy cardboard cover, lyric sheet, poster. With their second album Metal Revolution Living Death carried on where they had left off with Vengeance of Hell. With similar results. The production of the nine songs was again well under par compared to Thrash Metal classics such as Slayers Reign in Blood or Kreators Extreme Aggressions. In Andreas Oberhoff Living Death had found a competent new drummer. However, singer Thorsten "Toto" Bergmann was not willing to tone down his vocal style (which had by 1986 become the main trademark of the band). The press once again had a field day. Reviews could not have been much worse. Only a few magazines (like Metal Forces from the UK) did get what the band was trying to achieve. All in all, Metal Revolution was only a slightly less extreme record in comparison to the debut Vengeance of Hell. The album was originally released on the newly founded Earthshaker label (home of Warlock) in 1986. With "Screaming from a Chamber", "Deep in Hell" or "Grippin a Heart" it once again featured a fair number of raw German Thrash Metal classics. After the release of Metal Revolution the boys from Velbert ("Dead City" in the words of fellow Thrashers Violent Force) struggled on. Various line-up changes (Atomic Steif joined on drums, the Kelch bothers left) resulted in a more technical style of Thrash Metal though. Albums such as Protected from Reality (1987), Worlds Neuroses (1988) or Killing in Action (1991) were moving more and more in the direction of bands like Mekong Delta (or Sieges Even for that matter) .

LIVING DEATH - (COL) VENGEANCE OF HELL
350 x transparent clear/ red splatter vinyl, 425gsm heavy cardboard cover, lyric sheet, poster, REMIX VERSION 1985

WOODS OF DESOLATION - AS THE STARS (BLACK)
Limited 333 copies black vinyl. LP's come with gatefolds, A2 poster and logo sticker. 'As The Stars' is the new album from Woods Of Desolation, by now probably Australia's premier depressive black metal band. On this 3rd album, mastermind D. on guitars, with the help of session members (Vlad from Drudkh on drums, Luke Mills from Nazxul and Pestilential Shadows on bass, and Old from Drohtnung on vocals), continues the musical direction which was begun on 'Toward The Depths' and refined on the very successful 'Torn Beyond Reason'. Fans of the band will be pleased to hear that the main ingredients as well as the songwriting are similar to those on W.O.D.'s excellent sophomore album - haunting, melodic and intense depressive black metal, delving further into melancholy and the essence of personal expression through music, which may occasionally remind the listener of another of Australia's finest, AUSTERE, as well as ALCEST, and perhaps 'Brave Murder Day'-era KATATONIA.

GREEN & WOOD - DEVIL'S PLAN
Remember the doom metal band from Los Angeles Green & Wood? They released a debut in 2009 by Cyclopean Records and a second full-lenght self-released 'Devil's Plan' in 2011. Unfortunately, after a tour in mid-2012, the group disbanded and the albums have been forgotten. 'Devil's Plan' is a special material that equally competed with the best doom metal album in 2011 'Capricorn' by Orchid. Made Available again. Judging by the album covers I think they have sticked with the same artist and it's good for them! The art is amazing and it totally gives the idea of what you should expect form album. Lyrics always twist around themes of occultism, or pagan/satanic/folk stuff. 'Devil's Plan' sounds much more doom oriented, heavier and darker than its predecessor. Flowers vocals have a clearer Ozzy orientation and that is particularly noticeable on the slower songs. Green & Wood seems to be another one of those bands that Black Sabbath would be proud of. Now that the grandfathers are reunited (11-11-11) you can only dream to catch these guys on a tour with Orchid and Ice Dragon. Having shared the stage with masterminds such as Pentagram, Graveyard, Red Fang, Shrinebuilder, Earthless, Valiant Thorr and others, Green & Wood would not sit still for long. Winter of 2011, deep within the mountains of doom, Green & Wood honed their craft with wizardry and wonder. Naturally something was stirring up. That something was 'Devil's Plan'. Recorded solely in the living room of Ethan and Magda's house in Highland Park, California on a host of rotten old tape on a rotten old 8 track, 'Devil's Plan' started as a single and magically morphed into a full-length release in no time. Soon after, Green & Wood teamed up with Saviours to bring 'Devil's Plan' live to the uninitiated masses of the European continent for a well-received debut tour of the new album.

Image

RAINBOWS ARE FREE - WAVES AHEAD OF THE OCEAN
Their sophomore full length release heralds a unique interpretation of a bygone era of classic heaviness, setting them apart from contemporaries with whom they have shared the stage (Saint Vitus, High on Fire, The Sword, Pallbearer, Kylesa, Dead Meadow).

EXPECTED - 2014.12

ASG - WIN US OVER (2LP)
Double-LP reissue of ASG's classic 2008 record, remastered for vinyl! This is a triumph of a record that has LONG been out of print! Comes complete with a download code for the full album!

Image

DEVIL YOU KNOW - THE BEAUTY OF DESTRUCTION (2LP)
Released on double black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. 'The Beauty Of Destruction' isn't merely another great metal anthem. It's a battle cry, a statement of purpose, a scream for survival! From start to finish, this is a record that burns with emotion and intensity. The sort of record that pushes the competition to the ground. Very few debut records deliver this much.

Image

HOLOPAINEN, TUOMAS - THE LIFE AND TIMES OF SCROOCHE (2LP)
Double LP on black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. Tuomas Holopainen (the keyboardist and main songwriter of NIGHTWISH) has spent most of the year 2013 writing and producing his solo album. The main theme of the album is based on a graphic novel called The Life And Times Of Scrooge McDuck, written and illustrated by Don Rosa.

LIMB - LIMB
At last, here's the self titled debut album from London's doom/sludge monsters Limb. Limb have been a band to catch by those in the know on the doom/sludge scene since their formation in 2011. These musicians set themselves apart from the big heap of the genre's representatives by enriching their music with elements from post-punk and post-rock, including Joy Division and Slint. The super deluxe LP edition is pressed on 180-gram green and black vinyl and presented in an awesome gatefold sleeve. Also included is an insert of the cover art and a free download of the whole album.

MOTORHEAD - ACE OF SPADES (UK)
US reissue on black vinyl of this legendary title. Feted by bikers, adored by metal heads and respected by punks, Motörhead exemplified rock's outlaw chic. On 'Ace Of Spades' their speed-metal attack exploded with unparalleled fury. Indeed, the title track is -and will always be- one of the greatest heavy rock songs ever made.

OMEGA MASSIF - KALT
At last, the Omega Massif debut record 'KALT' is available on wax. This is not the usual silent start/big climax thing, well-known from the postrock genre. Nope, this is one of the best instrumental/metal/doom bands of the past years and already a classic of the genre. Remastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Phantomsmasher etc.).

REIGN OF FURY - WORLD DETONATION
Vinyl edition of their 2012 full-length. Contains eight intensely thrashing tracks!

Image

SABATON - HEROES
Another impressive offering from Sweden's award winning heavy metal giants Sabaton.

Image

SONATA ARTICA - PARIAH'S CHILD (2LP)
Finnish melodic metal outfit SONATA ARCTICA release their eighth studio album, the follow up to their successful 'Stones Grow Her Name' full-length. Double-LP on heavy vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.

Image

YOB - THE GREAT CESSATION (2LP)
Stoughton gatefold jacket. A classic that rabidly demanded to be reprinted! This is the best fucking album Yob has done! Contains two bonus tracks not available on the CD version. Doom is meant to be dour and slow, but here it's also furious. The riffs, the vocals, the deliberate, pummeling rhythm (courtesy of Yob alumni Travis Foster on drums and bassist Aaron Reiseberg) - it seethes from start to finish, and as a statement of intent for 'The Great Cessation', you can't get any better. Black vinyl.

CAULDRON BLACK RAM - STALAGMIRE
The crude horde that be the CAULDRON BLACK RAM emerges yet once more from wat'ry tomb to besiege hapless poseurs and put to manacles weak would-be picaroons. Being the third of albums to sail under the banner of Cauldron Black Ram, this recording is a commanding effort of sludgy, crossboned black death metal and slimy, rum-sodden doomed debauchery. The brigands from the far side of the world prove well versed in the execution of this unfair trade, delivering knavish punishment unto unprepared ears in the form of 'Stalagmire'. Be it black, death, doom, or thrash, all goes into the strange brew mixed in the Cauldron Black Ram. The line-up includes inner-circle members of MOURNFUL CONGREGATION, STARGAZER and MARTIRE. Vinyl edition with gatefold insert!

Image

ROCKA ROLLAS - CONQUER
Limited edtion 300 copies black vinyl. Running Wild have returned with their new EP "Conquer". Under the new name Rocka Rollas decided to bring us the pirate-infused speed metal once again! Well, thats what all Running Wild fans hoped at least. The good news is that Rocka Rollas is actually a legitimate new band that has truly captured the essence of Running Wild. Amazingly, all of this music was composed and played (except for the vocals) by just one guy. Musically, their first full-length, "The War of Steel Has Begun" was quite a different affair. It was still an over-the-top speed metal attack, but it was more of a tribute to heavy metal with tracks like "More Metal Than Steel" and "Heavy Metal Kings". With "Conquer", Rocka Rollas has turned their attention bringing back the glory of records like "Blazon Stone" and "Black Hand Inn".

VORTICE - HOST (COL)
LIMITED EDITION OF 200 COPIES ON COLOURED VINYL. "A progressive album that drifts away from the predictable rhythmic ventures of math metal and reaches for new horizons." ~Metal Hammer UK. "A cluster of tech metal yet organic, with math roots but also unpredictable and direct detours, structures that still challenge the foreseeable but catches the non-initiated listener better." ~Mondosonoro. "Dynamic and more varied than ever, 'Host' flows naturally, it rocks and hits like 'What Everyone Says' and the electronic 'The Spaceship Destroyer Of Mankind' certainly place Vortice among the best of Spain's scene." ~Rockzone.

FATSO JETSON - LIVE AT MAXIMUM FESTIVAL
Very limited green vinyl version. Price a bit higher. Straight from the stage of Maximum Festival 2013, the performance of Fatso Jetson, out now on vinyl for Go Down Records. A band at the antipodes of the stoner rock wave, Fatso Jetson always remained unfairly at the corners of the mainstream scene, even though we're talking of a band between the initiators of the movement, along with Kyuss and Fu Manchu, and with the last one they also share the provenance, Palm Desert. If we add that Mario and Larry Lalli were also among the founders of Yawning Man, we understand how these people have been vital to the creation and development of desert rock. Though spiritual fathers of a musical genre that made of repetition its trump card, Fatso Jetson stand out from any other band for their mobile and heterogeneous sound, especially since 2010 when the band came back on the scene, after eight years of silence, sounded almost "punk" .The live @ Maximum Festival, Go Down Records' festival, shows that not only Fatso Jetson are more alive than ever, but also their professional growth. Today, the band sounds like a mix between hard-rock, jazz, blues, country, and psychedelic prog, with a monolithic and indelible stoner trace. 50 minutes of tight and aggressive live show, driven by the eclectic and eccentric voice of Mario Lalli! After listening, there will be just one possible comment: WOW! Go Down Records pays tribute to one of the most important bands of the scene that made the label famous and, in return, hoping to give back a little gratification this band deserves.

Image

NIGHTSTALKER - SIDE FX (BLACK)
Reissue on black vinyl of this album from 1994. Produced by Thodoris Manikas and Alex K. from The Last Drive, this is raw '70s rock with screaming and blistering wah-wah guitars, heavy SABBATH-like riffs and LEMMY-type vocals. The tracks are 'Spit', 'What Your Name Is', 'Funny Paper', 'Keep Knocking' and 'Mad Prophet'.

EXPECTED - 2014.14

CASTLE - SECOND COMING/LABYRINTH OF DEATH
Black virgin wax, printed innersleeves, limited to 500 copies. Castle often refer to themselves as witch thrash in interviews, the explanation being quite simple: "there's a definite thrash element to our music even when were playing at slower tempos. It's a different sound, a little more complex maybe than your average doom or heavy metal band; and our lyrics do tend to dwell on themes of the occult. And," Mat adds, "inspired by Tony Iommi, all but three Castle songs are in C# tuning."

MOUNTAIN WITCH - SNAKE WAND/BLACK NIGHT
RELEASED FOR RECORD STORE DAY 2014-FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED! Mountain Witch re-recorded the instrumental opener of their breathtaking release 'Cold River', but this time WITH vocals! And damn, it really turned out great! On the flip there is a cover of the classic Deep Purople track 'Black Night'. Limited to 425 copies on green transparent vinyl.

ALASKAN - DESPAIR, EROSION, LOSS
Atmospheric post-metal from Ottawa, Canada. This trio knows how to write songs that feel dark and heavy. ALASKAN can easily be compared to bands s.a. Amen Ra, Neurosis, or Fall Of Efrafa. If you're into any of these names, Alaskan is without a doubt worth checkin' out.

Image

ARIA - ARMAGEDDON (2LP)
This album of the best known heavy metal band in the former USSR was originally released in 2006. There isn't so much an Iron Maiden-influence here as in Aria's sound during the '80s. Experiments with melodic power-metal that was in vogue in the 2000s dominate here. This is a great example of modern hard-n-heavy music.

Image

ARIA - PLYASKA ADA (3LP)
'Hell's Party'. Triple live record of the most legendary heavy ex-Sovjet metal band ever. A "greatest hits" set list that will please all the fans of Aria. Check out the real live sound of the heavy-metal legends from Moscow.

Image

ARSTIDIR LIFSINS - THAETTIR UR SOGU NORDRS
Limited to 300 first edition comes as 180 gram black virgin wax, printed heavy inner sleeves. Pagan black metal with Helrunar, Drautran, Kerbenok members.

Image

COLTSBLOOD - INTO THE UNFATHOMABLE ABYSS (2LP)
The thundering war drums, the voices of the old ones, the monolithic rumble of the war charge; COLTSBLOOD head unto the breach once more with a double LP of new war hymns, 'Into The Unfathomable Abyss'. Following on from 2013's self-released (and Ulthar repressed) demo 'Beyond The Lake Of Madness' and their split with Crypt Lurker, the battle-charged trio from Liverpool present their latest offering of crushing, often suffocating, doom. The trio are primal, bleak, utterly devastating and dripping with tar-black sludge. Following a CD/digital release on Candlelight Records, the seven-track album receives a much warranted vinyl pressing. The LP will be a co-release between Manchester's DIY filth merchants DRY COUGH RECORDS and Dutch stalwarts BURNING WORLD RECORDS. The battle-cries is available as a double LP in a gatefold sleeve, strictly limited to 300 copies.

CULT OF LUNA - ETERNAL MUSIC
In 2010 CULT OF LUNA independently released ' Eviga Riket', an audio book and DVD tlling the story of Holger Nilsson, a man who lived in the 1920s and who first lost his family and then his mind. This LP focuses on the music of that release only. 'Eternal Music' includes silk-screened cover art, printed in metallic golden ink on thick cardboard. The backside of the sleeve shows an illustration by Joris Vanpoucke that wasn't used for the original audio book.

Image

DELAIN - THE HUMAN CONTRADICTION (2LP)
Double-LP on black vinyl. DELAIN will not only enthral symphonic metal fans with their fourth album 'The Human Contradiction', but also listeners new to the genre. Extremely catchy refrains, bewitching hooks and melodies, symphonic bombast and of course a good dose of Metal, that's how symphonic metal has to sound in 2014! Vocalist supreme Charlotte Wessels and her equally talented band of colleagues exceeded the highest expectations and have elevated the genre to a whole new level.

Image

DREAD SOVEREIGN - ALL HELL'S MARTYRS (2LP)
Gatefold jacket, heavy printed innersleeves, limited to 300 first edition comes as 180 gram black virgin wax. Dread Sovereign is the born dead brain child of Nemtheanga from Primordial. Years of string hacking and slashing on guitar have finally come to realization as backed by Dubh SOL (Primordial) on drums and Bones (Wizards of Firetop Mountain) on guitar they have forged a new band. The blueprint is rough, raw old school doom / metal which reminds of Venom, Saint Vitus, Cirith Ungol and touches of late 80s early sepulchral black metal. Not intended to re-invent the wheel just to give it a good kicking in the true old evil metal fashion.

LOUDBLAST - BURIAL GROUND (COL)
EDITION ON COLOURED VINYL! LOUDBLAST are legends in the French and worldwide underground scene, end of story. Not only because they started off as far as 1985 when the words death metal were barely invented. Or because of their Scott Burns-produced masterpieces 'Disincarnate' (1991) or 'Sublime Dementia' (1993) or European tours with DEATH or CORONER. No, if this lot, led by founding member and guitarist/vocalist Stphane Buriez, are so revered in their home-country, it's first and foremost because of their unrivalled career that saw them taking many surprising and risky left-turns without ever looking back. In 2011 'Frozen Moments Between Life And Death' proved to be their boldest move as refuelled by the arrival of youngsters Alex Lenormand (bass, ex-LOCUS, CODE, SIC) and Drakhian (lead guitar, GRIFFAR, ex-TAAKE, BLACK DEMENTIA), Buriez and his longtime drummer Herv Coquerel threw all the rules out of the window without turning their backs on their roots. 'Burial Ground' goes even further. A solid mix of classic and modern influences, it dares transgressing their traditional thrash/death style of yore to achieve a much more catchy sound.

Image

MISERY INDEX - KILLER GODS (BLACK) (2LP)
LIMITED 400 COPIES. Alternative Cover + Bonus track. MISERY INDEX return with a fury worthy of the title of their new album, "The Killing Gods". With their fifth full-length, the American icons of hard-hitting brutality display the strength of maturity grown out of the experience gained as a relentless touring machine. The general trend of their continuous evolution to incorporate less core elements and move towards classic death metal finds a new high water mark with "The Killing Gods". Now brace yourselves, hold tight and duck for cover, for the wrath of the gods is upon us! Recommended if you like: MORBID ANGEL, DYING FETUS, CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, HATE ETERNAL, IMMOLATION, SIX FEET UNDER

NAGA - HEN
Recorded and mixed in Fall 2013 by Maddalena Bellini in Naples and mastered by James Plotkin in Philadelphia, 'Hen' is NAGA's debut album: 5 tracks of doom and post-core, a black monolith which recalls black metal atmospheres. The sound evoked by Emanuele Schember (bass), Lorenzo De Stefano (vocals and guitars) and Dario Graziano (drums), is a morbid, pachydermic, low-tuned mid-tempo. 'Hen' is the word used by the ancient Greeks to indicate the One, the divine principle embracing the whole reality, it's the highest idea, it's what the Becoming implies, it's where everything originates and everything returns.

SONATA ARTICA - PARIAH'S CHILD (2LP)

WOODS OF DESOLATION - AS THE STARS (BLACK)
Limited 333 copies black vinyl. LP's come with gatefolds, A2 poster and logo sticker. 'As The Stars' is the new album from Woods Of Desolation, by now probably Australia's premier depressive black metal band. On this 3rd album, mastermind D. on guitars, with the help of session members (Vlad from Drudkh on drums, Luke Mills from Nazxul and Pestilential Shadows on bass, and Old from Drohtnung on vocals), continues the musical direction which was begun on 'Toward The Depths' and refined on the very successful 'Torn Beyond Reason'. Fans of the band will be pleased to hear that the main ingredients as well as the songwriting are similar to those on W.O.D.'s excellent sophomore album - haunting, melodic and intense depressive black metal, delving further into melancholy and the essence of personal expression through music, which may occasionally remind the listener of another of Australia's finest, AUSTERE, as well as ALCEST, and perhaps 'Brave Murder Day'-era KATATONIA.

BLOOD CEREMONY - LET IT COME DOWN
Following the success of their internationally acclaimed third album, 'The Eldritch Dark', Blood Ceremony return with this single.

SATAN'S SATYRS - BLACK SOULS (USA)
US edition! 'Black Souls', the lead-off single from their 2014 album 'Die Screaming', is a wild ride out of the dungeon that spawned them into a three-dimensional orgy of forbidden delights.

SATAN'S SATYRS - LIVE AT THE BLACK CAT
Recorded live, shortly after the release of their debut LP, this 7-inch showcases the youthful energy and seasoned swagger of the premier power-trio of the twenty-tens.

Raw and loud, this puts you in the front row--the proper appetizer for their worldwide assault this year. Intriguing, heavy, and WILD BEYOND BELIEF!

THOU & THE BODY - RELEASED FROM LOVE
This is not a split, but a full-on collaboration between both bands on all tracks. Everything comes to its peak on these recordings. Everyone's voice is heard, through instrument or otherwise, clearly defining their role in the project. All the things that make both groups special are apparent and fleshed out.

Blending the suffocating atmospherics of doom/sludge with the raw ferocity of black metal, punk and d-beat, on their first album since five years Nux Vomica construct an organic heaviness caught somewhere between Neurosis and His Hero Is Gone. Their self-titled LP is a three-song, 40-plus-minute emotional odyssey into the depths of human darkness. A flawless combination of epic song structures with crushing melodies and colossal riffs with powerful dynamics, 'Nux Vomica' is a truly captivating listening experience that will appeal to fans of anything extreme.

October File have earned a formidable reputation as one of the UK's heaviest and most intensely original bands. This post-punk-hc crew, formed in 2003 by guitarist Matt Lerwill and bassist Steve Beatty, has doggedly redefined what it means to convey ferocity and fury through the art of riffs, rhythms and incendiary, politically-charged lyrics.

BARBARIAN - FAITH EXTINGUISHER
Their 2012 split with BUNKER 66 predicted a change in approach, a direction which they continue here. Nevertheless, the seven tracks on 'Faith Extinguisher' are still 666% pure BARBARIAN. This album is a sermon of allegiance to ALL things metal the '80s way.

GREEN & WOOD - DEVIL'S PLAN
Remember the doom metal band from Los Angeles Green & Wood? They released a debut in 2009 by Cyclopean Records and a second full-lenght self-released 'Devil's Plan' in 2011. Unfortunately, after a tour in mid-2012, the group disbanded and the albums have been forgotten. 'Devil's Plan' is a special material that equally competed with the best doom metal album in 2011 'Capricorn' by Orchid. Made Available again. Judging by the album covers I think they have sticked with the same artist and it's good for them! The art is amazing and it totally gives the idea of what you should expect form album. Lyrics always twist around themes of occultism, or pagan/satanic/folk stuff. 'Devil's Plan' sounds much more doom oriented, heavier and darker than its predecessor. Flowers vocals have a clearer Ozzy orientation and that is particularly noticeable on the slower songs. Green & Wood seems to be another one of those bands that Black Sabbath would be proud of. Now that the grandfathers are reunited (11-11-11) you can only dream to catch these guys on a tour with Orchid and Ice Dragon. Having shared the stage with masterminds such as Pentagram, Graveyard, Red Fang, Shrinebuilder, Earthless, Valiant Thorr and others, Green & Wood would not sit still for long. Winter of 2011, deep within the mountains of doom, Green & Wood honed their craft with wizardry and wonder. Naturally something was stirring up. That something was 'Devil's Plan'. Recorded solely in the living room of Ethan and Magda's house in Highland Park, California on a host of rotten old tape on a rotten old 8 track, 'Devil's Plan' started as a single and magically morphed into a full-length release in no time. Soon after, Green & Wood teamed up with Saviours to bring 'Devil's Plan' live to the uninitiated masses of the European continent for a well-received debut tour of the new album.

GOLDEN GRASS - GOLDEN GRASS (BLACK)
Black vinyl, ltd. to 500. With download coupon. The glory of American hard rock has returned with the debut eponymous album by THE GOLDEN GRASS! This Brooklyn-based power-trio is the real deal, and their LP harkens back to the golden age when heavy rock music was upbeat, skillfully played, energetic, edgy, and bursting with goodtime sunshine vibes. They come hard with a strong backbone of deep-pocket funky flare and an earnest/uplifting southern/country/mountain rock vibe, layered with waves of psychedelic textures that explode into jaw-dropping proto-metal moves. And throughout their progressive arrangements and timeless grooves are lush and powerfully delivered vocals, stacked with gorgeous harmonies and maddeningly catchy verses and choruses singing the tales of real-life loves, losses, and the drive to keep on keepin on! This album is a sure treat for fans of classic underground hard rock such as Truth and Janey, Dust, and Josefus as well as fans of classic UK psychedelia such as The Move, The Pretty Things, and Mighty Baby. THE GOLDEN GRASS will also greatly appeal to folks into the contemporary sounds of Danava, Horisont, Graveyard, and Dead Man.

KILLIMANJARO - HOOK
This LP offers a 36-mimute heavy metal trip, full of catchy riffs à la Iron Maiden, recorded by a Portuguese trio with its roots in the realms of stoner rock.

MAYHEM - ESOTERIC WARFARE (2LP/BLACK)
It has been seven long years since MAYHEM released their fourth and latest full-length Ordo ad Chao. Rejuvenated by the recruitment of Teloch (of NIDINGR fame) in replacement of iconic guitarist / composer Blasphemer who left the fold in 2008, the spearhead of Black Metal is back stronger than ever before with a new album. Esoteric Warfare demonstrates how perfectly Teloch has captured the essence and spirit of the Norwegian legend by linking the band back to its roots, while at the same time taking a step forward into the leading position of the genre instead of dwelling in nostalgia. Esoteric Warfare is a full-scale assault of total dark savagery, where Attila's inhumane vocals are entirely based on a concept dealing with the esoteric experimentations of the nuclear powers during the cold war. The album proves once again and beyond doubt that MAYHEM are the Alpha and the Omega of black metal!

MONOLITH DEATHCULT - TETRAGRAMMATON (2LP)
This vinyl edition includes 2 bonus tracks. (Remix + Live). Dutch death-dealers THE MONOLITH DEATHCULT deliver destruction with their latest album 'TETRAGRAMMATON'. A mighty assault of punishing riffs, vicious drum slaughter, and ridiculously brutal vocals, the album bears down on the listener like a tank from start to finish. TMDC prove their metal has more depth however with narration and ornamentation (synths, effects) straight out of vintage Hollywood action films. Rest assured, you've never heard brutal metal like this before.

NEGATIVE STANDARDS/WHITEHORSE - SPLIT
REDUCED PRICE - ALL COPIES HAVE DAMAGED JACKETS FROM TRANSIT! Two of the heaviest bands around team up for one ear damaging split. Australia's WHITEHORSE once more deliver ultrabrutal sludge/doom with one of the sickest vocalists around, think a sludgier Corrupted. NEGATIVE STANDARDS from the States are all over the place, mixing aggressive HC/power violence with mean sludge and even some black metal. Mastered by JAMES PLOTKIN with artwork by KEVIN GAN YUEN (Sutekh Hexen).

SEPTICFLESH - TITAN (2LP/BLACK)
'Titan' is the power of darkness made manifest in music. Guitarist Christos Antoniou, who passed his academic studies of classical composition with honours and distinction, already proved his prowess for orchestration with 'Communion' (2008) and 'The Great Mass' (2011). Yet on 'Titan', the musician shows a new level of maturity in his use of classical instruments within a metal context, hiring once again the services of the FILMharmonic Orchestra Prague. With Fotis Benardo's inhuman drum patterns and vocalist / bassist Seth "Siro" Anton's demonic growls coming straight from the Underworld, 'Titan' actually stands an otherworldly, godlike album.

VAINAJA - KADOTETUT (BLACK)
Limited 300 black vinyl. Vainaja is a three-headed metal band from Finland. Taking influences from early 90's death metal and doom, their debut album 'Kadotetut' is one of the heaviest records ever made in the Finnish language. Besides the crushing riffs and dark melodies, the album's concept is based on encrypted true events from the past.

WITCH MOUNTAIN - SOUTH OF SALEM (BLACK) (2LP)
Gatefold. Black vinyl, ltd. to 300.

YOUNG & IN THE WAY - WHEN LIFE COMES TO DEATH
YOUNG AND IN THE WAY are a blackened metal/crust hybrid from the shadows of North Carolina. Over the last four years they have evolved through multiple releases from a vicious monster to a multi-headed beast. Expect brutal metal combined with hypnotic atmospherics, topped off with a bleak HC/punk spirit.

DRUGLORD - ENTER VENUS
Exclusive European edition, swamp green with white and black splatter vinyl limited to 103 copies! Virgina doom gods... slow and heavy... Warning: this album will blow your speakers apart! Recorded and mixed in the fall of 2013 by none other than Garrett Morris of Windhand. The three gristled veterans boast a pedigree including Honor Role, Unseen Force, Hated Youth, Four Walls Falling, Debbie Harry Band, L7, Gruel, Moby, and countless other bands over the years. "...this shit is doomier than doom... reminiscent of the equally gloomy doomster Windhand, one can draw comparisons to that band... Like your favourite horror movie, Druglord make you sick to your stomach, yet the thrill is in the fear and just like a horror flick, 'Enter Venus' is ultimately satisfying. Resistance is futile my friends." ~Aaron Pickford (Sludgelord).

TRAITORS RETURN TO EARTH - BETTING ON A FULL COLLAPSE
In 2011 Traitors Return to Earth released Smokescreen and received warm welcomes from the international doom scene as a result. This their sophomore effort, the much awaited Betting on a Full Collapse promised not to disappoint. While Smokescreen offered up critical observations of endless wars and of US foreign policy, Betting on a Full Collapse shifts its harsh critique toward the failing monetary policies of a rapidly growing world bank. The vinyl release will feature all original cover art from W. Ralph Walters, including an original Traitors Return to Earth themed comic book by W. Ralph Walters in every album as well as a download for the album plus two bonus tracks! Traitors doubled down on Betting, choosing once again to play all basic tracks live. The result is a very raw and personal experience that draws in the listener. Digging even deeper into the riff, Traitors have grown darker and more complex on Betting while still allowing for a certain diversity. "Betting On A Full Collapse is a brilliant album that I cannot rate highly enough. This is their best work to date and I hope there is more to come from these hugely talented sludge metallers... They might be great guys away from the band but once they are playing as a collective unit then they are true demonic force of nature. A dark and brooding unflinching ride of thrills and spills take this album into the realm of brilliance."

WOUNDED KINGS - CONSOLAMENTUM
Produced by Chris Fielding (Electric Wizard) and overcoming numerous line-ups since their formation in 2005, Mills and the KINGS have amazed audiences with their powerful stage personae. THE WOUNDED KINGS have a mystical and mythical quality which makes them an enormously appealing prospect," said Terrorizer Magazine of the bands summertime London performance. "THE WOUNDED KINGS sound is so organic that the room actually starts to feel damp and musty," notes Blabbermouth. The two-time Roadburn alumni are cherished by attendees and the popular festival promoters, who call the band "British doom of staggering power that is made all the more distinct by the unsettling presence of singer Sharie Neyland, who stands on stage almost trance-like, invoking her lyrics in a chanted voice that holds the entire venue in thrall." To date the Dartmoor-based five piece has released three full-length studio albums and a well received split album with Richmond, Virginias Cough. The band has been finding a growing American audience since the release of their 2011 album, In the Chapel Of The Black Hand. It is the first to feature the band's new vocalist; Neyland.

BEDROOM REHAB CORPORATION - RED OVER RED
BRC is a 2 piece band hailing from New London, CT. centered around hypnotic doom and gloom riffing and sludgy shoe-gaze soundscapes. Gathering influence from grunge, metal, hardcore, stoner rock and blues, the band are writing songs that are more than just the sum of these influences.

BLUE OYSTER CULT - SECRET TREATIES
Back in the days of hard rock and surrounded by fierce competitors with such great names as the Doors, Black Sabbath and the Rolling Stones, a band had to attract attention with far more than histrionic pathos, biker boogie, an adept lead guitarist and a sharp-tongued singer. The band Blue Oyster Cult founded on Long Island in 1971, possessed all this and much more, relating short scenarios in their lyrics, which conjured up peoples imagination. Rolling Stone magazine enthused that it was like listenin to Hitchcock and Kubrick swap stories about their wet dreams, and that the group mix aesthetics and ass-kicking rock to such good advantage. In their third studio album 'Secret Treaties' BOC reached the pinnacle of their musical evolution with such memorable songs as 'Career Of Evil', 'Subhuman' and 'Astronomy'. The lyrics have literary value but are certainly not intended for sensitive souls - the phrases are direct and intentionally drily articulated. The music is as blatant and extroverted as the lyrics: the guitar sound is steely and straightforward, occasionally padded out with a see-sawing Hammond groove, and topped again and again by wonderfully rough string solos that speak the language of hard, merciless and full-bodied rock.

CAPILLA ARDIENTE - (BLACK) BRAVERY, TRUTH AND THE ENDLESS DARKNESS
Edition on black vinyl with a gatefold cover and insert. Following the band's 12-inch EP, 'Solve Et Coagula', Capilla Ardiente's first longplayer consists of four epic apx. 10-minute compositions, an atmospheric instro and a haunting interlude. Capilla Ardiente (from Chile) is the brainchild of Claudio Botarro (bass) and Felipe Plaza (vocals), whon are joined by Julio Borquez (guitars) and Francisco Aguirre (drums). Botarro and Plaza also play with fellow doomsters Procession. However, there is a fundamental difference between Capilla Ardiente and Procession, neither of which is a mere side project but both are full-blown bands.

CAVE IN - SACRIFICE POLES
Long, long awaited vinyl pressing of a mid-period work from CAVE IN, originally released on CD in 2001 and out of print ever since. This one consists entirely of 4-track experimentations and choice instrumental jams. Aside from 'Brain Candle Waltz', all songs are exclusive to this release. Includes a download.

Image

CLOVEN HOOF - RESIST OR SERVE (BLACK)
Though underrated during the heyday of the NWOBHM, CLOVEN HOOF through the years have become the stuff of legend. Their '82 debut EP nowadays changes hands for a small fortune, and their four following full lengths (including one live release) are also very collectable. Now Cloven Hoof return with a 2014 album, which is everything as good as their records from the '80s. This is an edition of 300 copies on black vinyl, presented in a heavy cardboard cover and including a lyric sheet and poster.

Image

DESECRATOR - SUBSCONSCIOUS RELEASE
This raging death metal record originally came out in 1990, at the height of the death/thrash boom, but it may have been lost a little bit in the avalanche of releases that appeared back in the day. Nevertheless, this album is a good as any of the best UK death metal titles from back then, featuring an incredibly heavy sound, fantastic riffs and a gloomy edge. Desecrator only released this one album (apart from recording an even more obscure demo) and original copies go for silly money on eBay, so grab your chance to get this now!

DRIP - A PRESENTATION OF GRUESOME POLITICS
Washington State's THE DRIP roar onto the scene with a blasting EP of filthy, angry grind, produced and engineered by JOEL GRIND of TOXIC HOLOCAUST. An absolute must for fans of grind greats Napalm Death, Nasum and Rotten Sound, this is a relentlessly skull crushing record of pissed off, high energy, barbaric grind. This hate is timeless. The first pressing of the vinyl version comes with a totally sick etching on the B-side.

Image

DYNAMITE - BLACKOUT STATION (BLACK)
Limited edition of 150 LP's on black vinyl, presented in a gatefold cover with an insert. There must be something in the water in Sweden (or in the beer for that matter). Or how else would you explain the sheer number of high quality metal acts having formed in the country over the last couple of years? Dynamite is another representative of that fertile scene, and a great one too!

EXODUS - (BLACK) BONDED BY BLOOD
Reissue of the band's 1985 debut-album. Edition on black vinyl, presented in a heavy cardboard cover, including lyric sheet and poster.

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE - AGONY (2LP)
'Agony' will be unleashed upon mankind for the very 1st time on DOUBLE vinyl in a lim. ed. of 350 hand-numbered pieces in white vinyl. This absolute masterworks comes housed in a special 3-D HANDMADE cover and printed inner sleeves. 'Agony' marks the band's debut on the historic Nuclear Blast Records label and it features the Carcass ever green 'Heartwork' cover as bonus track! This band is the next big thing in the music biz! Acclaimed in the USA after their extensive tours as well as in Europe, they just kick serious asses!

HOUSE OF LIGHTNING - LIGHTWORKER
From the mad-genius mind of HENRY WILSON comes an almost uncategorizable yet positively spiritual incorporation of heavy metal, thrash, bits of math, a sprinkle of prog, a pinch of 1984, and a dash of 5150. Sounds wild you say? That's because IT IS. 'Lightworker' is difficult to simply just pin a label onto, so you are better off hearing this one for yourself. All aboard the rocketship! Pressed on green vinyl.

TOXIC HOLOCAUST - EVIL NEVER DIES
Repress on yellow splatter vinyl. Edition of 666 copies.

Image

CASTLE - SECOND COMING/LABYRINTH OF DEATH
Black virgin wax, printed innersleeves, limited to 500 copies. Castle often refer to themselves as witch thrash in interviews, the explanation being quite simple: "there's a definite thrash element to our music even when were playing at slower tempos. It's a different sound, a little more complex maybe than your average doom or heavy metal band; and our lyrics do tend to dwell on themes of the occult. And," Mat adds, "inspired by Tony Iommi, all but three Castle songs are in C# tuning."

Image

ROMERO - SOLITAIRE/EL SENTIDO MORBOSO
Solitaire b/w El Sentido Morboso, 2 STONER anthems. Limited to 500. Black vinyl. Covers are hand-screened sparkle silver ink on heavy black paper. Includes immediate download of 3-track album in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more), plus unlimited mobile access using the free Bandcamp listening app. So, what is it about ROMERO that should make sludge & stoner fans drool? With Romero the influences (Black Sabbath, Torche, Sleep, The Sword, Queens of the Stone Age, etc.) are shuffled up before Jeffrey Mundt and company deal out a royal flush. Mighty riff after mighty riff is unleashed upon the unsuspecting listener and before long you find yourself buried by a mountain of fuzzy sludge/stoner rock

BEDROOM REHAB CORPORATION - RED OVER RED
BRC is a 2 piece band hailing from New London, CT. centered around hypnotic doom and gloom riffing and sludgy shoe-gaze soundscapes. Gathering influence from grunge, metal, hardcore, stoner rock and blues, the band are writing songs that are more than just the sum of these influences.

Image

PET THE PREACHER - THE CAVE & THE SUNLIGHT (2LP)
Double LP on black vinyl in gatefold sleeve. 'The Cave & The Sunlight' offers heavy stoner rock of the highest level. The Danes deliver the right amount of sing-along refrains, Blues parts, catchy melodies and brilliant grooves, thus turning songs like 'Kamikaze Knight' or 'Remains' into true hymns.

Image

ROMERO - TAKE THE POTION
So, what is it about "Take The Potion" that should make sludge & stoner fans drool? With Romero the influences (Black Sabbath, Torche, Sleep, The Sword, Queens of the Stone Age, etc.) are shuffled up before Jeffrey Mundt and company deal out a royal flush. Mighty riff after mighty riff is unleashed upon the unsuspecting listener and before long you find yourself buried by a mountain of fuzzy sludge/stoner rock. Therefor ROMERO lifts the stoner rock genre to new heights with their full length album 'Take The Potion'. The 7-song LP delivers 42 minutes of impressive rock and is pressed on three different colours mixed available on deluxe 150-gram vinyl. Limited to only 300 copies.

TRAITORS RETURN TO EARTH - BETTING ON A FULL COLLAPSE
In 2011 Traitors Return to Earth released Smokescreen and received warm welcomes from the international doom scene as a result. This their sophomore effort, the much awaited Betting on a Full Collapse promised not to disappoint. While Smokescreen offered up critical observations of endless wars and of US foreign policy, Betting on a Full Collapse shifts its harsh critique toward the failing monetary policies of a rapidly growing world bank. The vinyl release will feature all original cover art from W. Ralph Walters, including an original Traitors Return to Earth themed comic book by W. Ralph Walters in every album as well as a download for the album plus two bonus tracks! Traitors doubled down on Betting, choosing once again to play all basic tracks live. The result is a very raw and personal experience that draws in the listener. Digging even deeper into the riff, Traitors have grown darker and more complex on Betting while still allowing for a certain diversity. "Betting On A Full Collapse is a brilliant album that I cannot rate highly enough. This is their best work to date and I hope there is more to come from these hugely talented sludge metallers... They might be great guys away from the band but once they are playing as a collective unit then they are true demonic force of nature. A dark and brooding unflinching ride of thrills and spills take this album into the realm of brilliance."

Image

TWINGIANT - MASS DRIVER
Twingiant was formed in the spring of 2010 to fulfill the band members desire to play loud-as-shit, heavy music. They are from the lost desert planet of Phoenix, Arizona. To date they have released a full-length (Mass Driver) and an EP (Sin Nombre). This their debut album is a heavy slab of brilliant Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs. If youre a fan of The Sword, Mastodon, High On Fire and Sleep then these guys would definitely be on your radar as they were with mine.

METAL/HARDROCK/THRASH/DOOM/SOUTHERN ROCK - Compact Disc

BEDOWYN - WOLVES AND TREES
Bedowyn's debut EP, "Wolves & Trees", released August 2013, has been met with critical acclaim from the metal community drawing comparisons to Mastodon, High on Fire, Sabbath, and early Metallica, and is a loud statement of what is to come. Bedowyn stands heavy and motivated, and ready to wander the world bringing their savage sounds to all.

Image

BLACK HELL OIL - SMOKE YOU UP
Canadian loud ass riff rock. On their latest self-titled EP the band trudges through five furious and fuzzed-out heavy rockers. The EP starts out with the contagious rock anthem "Smoke You Up". Heaviness to the max as the guitar detunes into a gargantuan riff and then rips into a killer stoner rock frenzy. Steady and intense, the band incorporates a vintage seventies feel into their sound. The opening riff on "Rock and Roll Ain't the Same These Days" is absolutely bone-crushing! The EP ends on a high note with "Bring It On". A fast-paced riff-rock neck-snapper that ties the EP all together. For those of you that have lost hope, Black Hell Oil is proof that good rock music is alive and well."

Image

BLACK SUMMER RAIN - BLACK SUMMER RAIN
Black Summer Rain is a whirlwind of melody driven guitar riffs, pounding lows and intense emotional lyrics. Sounds Like: Down, Black Sabbath, Black Label Society, Crowbar Band, Judas Priest.

STONE MACHINE ELECTRIC - STONE MACHINE ELECTRIC
Stone Machine Electric are a band blending hard-hitting Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs with a great attitude to match. Stone Machine Electric are here to stir things up a bit. Sublime head-banging riffs with superb thought-provoking ideas to match. The album also has Kent Stump from brilliant Stoner Rockers - Wo Fat involved making this album sounds epic. Each note is played loud and clear. The production showcases Stone Machine Electric hard hitting vision to perfection. This is an excellent album full of great ideas and superb riffs.

Image

TWINGIANT - SIN NOMBRE
TwinGiant are back with their rifftastic new EP - Sin Nombre - A 5 track and 27-minute blast of hard-rocking riffs to rock out to. Nothing much has changed from their excellent debut. Just more of the same great TwinGiant magic that made me such a fan of their music in the first place.

OATH - THE OATH
To master the dark and wring compelling creativity from its densest shadows requires vision, belief and, perhaps most importantly, a dash of synchronicity. These are all qualities that ooze from every pore of the debut album by The Oath. A band forged around the fizzing, feral chemistry between Swedish guitarist Linnea Olsson and German vocalist Johanna Sadonis, The Oath represent the wild magic that erupts when two blazing souls collide and fate is sent veering off course by sheer strength of the human will. This is heavy metal at its most mercurial and intuitive. Veering from the strident grooves and shimmering menace of opener 'All Must Die' to the breakneck, Luciferian clatter of 'Black Rainbow' and on to the spine-tingling grandeur and grime of epic closer 'Psalm 7', The Oath is anything but just another addition to the modern pseudo-occult rock canon. Instead, it is an extraordinary glimpse into its creators overpowering charisma and chemistry and a thrillingly, hyper-nourishing dose of authentic, 21st century heavy metal sorcery. With input from In Solitude's Henke Palm - who contributes some improvised Voivod-style solos, according to Linnea, and logo designed courtesy of Watain's Erik Danielson, this is an album that exudes ageless style and irresistible substance: a potent antidote to the flimsy fripperies of the modern age.

FU MANCHU - GIGANTOID
The year 2014 marks the release of Fu Manchu's first full-length in nearly five years. Edition on purple vinyl.

ACID WITCH/NUNSLAUGHTER - SPLIT 7"
The supremely tongue-in-cheek death metal band Nunslaughter have teamed with death-doomers Acid Witch for a split 7" due on the great Hell's Headbangers.

ZATH - BLACK GOAT RAZOR/PAIN REAPER
ZATH (pronounced as ZOTH) comprises Zack Weil (OOZING WOUND, CACAW), Seth Sher (SYNE, PSYCHIC STEEL, GA'AN) and Dan Browning (CAVE). Zath's songs are a bottomless well of incalculable feeling and influence (among which Judas Priest, '70s proto-metal, Kreator, Magma, Yes and Sodom are just a few), rendered with thrusting ability and immaculate precision. The writing process involves extensive use of Zath's riff log, compiled for years leading back into the mists of time.

GRAVES AT SEA - THIS PLACE IS POISON
Side A's 'This Place Is Poison' finds the all-consuming, slow-motion sludge for which the band is so synonymous flooding in with a torrent of crusted-over guitars anchored away by swampy bass rumbles and earth-rupturing drums all bathed in the howls and shrieks of the damned. But in shaking off their cobwebs, Graves At Sea have emerged reanimated with a heretofore unheard speed, at least when compared to their syrupy crawl of the past. On Side B, Black Sabbath's 'Orchid' and 'Lord Of This World' get bold re-imaginings. Limited to 1.000 copies and packaged with black inner sleeves, standard metallic gold on black jackets and one-sided metallic gold on black inserts. Includes a free download code.

STONE TITAN - PEACE, LOVE, AND GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY FACE
STONE TITAN follow up 2013's 'Scratch And Sniff' LP with a couple of new jams that are heavier than fuck. This stuff is loud, harsh, heavy psychedelic sludge stoner doom. Edition of 250 12-inch records pressed on random colour vinyl and mastered at 45rpm. Download included!

BLOODY HAMMERS - UNDER SATAN'S SUN
Limited vinyl, gatefold sleeve. BLOODY HAMMERS, the band revolving around the charismatic mastermind Anders Manga, release their third album 'Under Satan's Sun' which follows once more the dark paths populated by sinister characters and spectral apparitions. Dark occult rock with a pinch of H.P. Lovecraft and Ray Bradbury is the main attraction of the show, when the master of ceremonies Anders Manga opens the gates to the netherworld. 'Under Satan's Sun' is a multilayered album that resembles a classic horror flick from the '70s. An album filled with charm, big refrains and a classy atmosphere.

Image

DUST BOLT - AWAKE THE RIOT (2LP)
The German shooting stars are back with a vengeance! 'Awake The Riot' is the perfect example of how thrash metal should sound, and shows that DUST BOLT are already snapping at the heels of the Bay Area heroes. Highly explosive precision drumming, furious leads and solos plus fantastic riffs flying at the listener so intensely, that suffering from whiplash after the first spin of the album is guaranteed. 'Awake The Riot' is an aggressive rapid-fire riff barrage that will take no prisoners!

Image

GORGUTS - COLORED SANDS (2LP)
New orange vinyl version limited to 500 copies. GORGUTS, long-running Canadian craftsmen of technical death metal have returned! After more than a decade of silence, mastermind Luc Lemay unleashes "Colored Sands", a new brand of pestilent fury featuring an all star line-up including John Longstreath (ORIGIN, SKINLESS), Colin Marston (BEHOLD THE ARCTOPUS) and Kevin Hufnagel (DYSRHYTHMIA). Few extreme bands have the pedigree of GORGUTS. During their early days as part of death metal's first wave, they created a legacy of legendary releases including their debut album "Considered Dead" (1991) and its follow-up "Erosion of Sanity" (1993). The latter witnessed the Canadians becoming more experimental and technical. After a hiatus of five years, Luc Lemay returned with a new line-up, which released the acclaimed third full-length "Obscura" (1998). By then GORGUTS had fully transformed into one of the most progressive and influential bands in extreme music, which remained impervious to trends, while expanding and redefining the language of death metal. With a new line-up that left Lemay as the sole original member, another milestone album was released. On "From Wisdom to Hate" (2001) the Quebecois successfully merged the brutal and more direct approach of their earlier albums with the complex arrangements of "Obscura". Just as GORGUTS seemed on the verge of making the first decade of the new century their own, the band was hit by business and personal issues and went on hiatus. Their musical legacy continued to inspire and thrive as their native Quebec became a focus for technical death metal with acts such as CRYPTOPSY, NEURAXIS and BEYOND CREATION to name but a few following in their footsteps. Now the masters are back to deliver the stunning masterpiece the metal world has been awaiting so long. Brace hard or get swept away by the mind blowing storm of "Colored Sands"!

IMPETIGO - ULTIMO MONDO CANNIBALE/FACELESS (2LP)
This underground death/grind/gore metal classic from 1990 sees a reissu with the ORIGINALLY BANNED COVER ARTWORK, now fully restored in all its gory glory! This art was STEVO at his sick and morbid best! The album has been remastered by PATRICK BRUSS from CRYPTICUS and includes the infamous 'Faceless' EP remastered! Also includes detailed liner notes from vocalist Stevo and all the old classic artwork, show flyers, photos and more! This is the ultimate vinyl edition of this beloved splatter classic! Uncle Creepy lives yet again!

IN THE COMPANY OF SERPENTS - OF THE FLOCK
A superb serving of doom/sludge/noise from a Denver-based two-piece! Featuring all killers, the music reminds of Capricorn or Ocean. A must-have if you can imagine one!

INCANTATION - MORTAL THRONE OF NAZARETH
Reissue of the second studio album by American death metal band INCANTATION. The album was first released in 1994 on Relapse Records in the US and Nuclear Blast Records in Europe.

Image

OSIRIS CLUB - BLAZING WORLD
Four years in the making, the debut album by London's The Osiris Club is finally here! Originally conceived as an instrumental project fusing horror movie soundtracks with avant-metal, the band has now morphed into a forbidding unit of musicians. Taking the best parts of 1970s progressivism, 1980s post-punk and 1990s extreme rock, they have created a genuinely new sound, radical and uncompromising yet still melodic and accessible. Guitarist Chris Fullard on the recording sessions: "We tracked at the renowned all-analogue Orgone Studios in London, then moved the session over to Seattle and began mixing at Avast studios with audio master Mr Randall Dunn, who has previously produced Sunn O))), Earth and Wolves In the Throne Room among others. Additional guest vocals were added there by Brad from Master Musicians Of Bukakke, The Accused.

PRONG - RUINING LIVES (3LP+CD)
The 2014 album from PRONG! Comes as a triple-LP set on coloured vinyl. Includes a gatefold sleeve, the CD-version and a bonus track.

SO HIDEOUS - LAST POEM/FIRST LIGHT
Hailing from NYC, SO HIDEOUS combines intense, blackened HC with orchestral elements to create a unique blend of music that has been called a "raging force of post-black metal, frothing with shoegaze and oozing with tortured melancholy." So Hideous formed in 2008 with the intention to make soundtracks for films that yet had to be produced. Expect throat searing chamber music and an orchestra of guitars, bass, drum and boss pedals.

Image

VADER - TIBI ET IGNI (+7")
Black vinyl + bonus 7". VADER return with the absolute heaviest album in their career. 'Tibi Et Igni' offers merciless riffing, double bass attacks like uppercuts and vocals that echo from your guts like thunder in the night.

MESSENGER - ILLUSORY BLUES (BLACK)
Gatefold, booklet, black vinyl. MESSENGER (UK) is a musical troupe from London formed in the spring of 2012 by Khaled Lowe and Barnaby Maddick. They booked a session with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios that gave birth to their debut album, Illusory Blues: a cosmic ode to the forces of nature and the inevitable cycle of life. To cite musical influences would be futile. The musicians had made their names with bands in scenes as far apart as hardcore punk, black metal, and ambient music. Tonally, one might recall finding oneself in the same "space" occupied by other architects of sound such as Ulver, The Beatles, Swans, or Pink Floyd. But the stream of sound that emanates from the source of Illusory Blues is a heaving mass of organic richness, brimmed with intricate sounds that acknowledge the original fathers of experimentation but look forward in creating something new and unique. They dwell equally in the earthly realm of folk music and in the celestial void of progressive psychedelia, but have chanced upon a sound and an experience that sounds like no other.

GOLDEN GRASS - GOLDEN GRASS (BLACK)
Black vinyl, ltd. to 500. With download coupon. The glory of American hard rock has returned with the debut eponymous album by THE GOLDEN GRASS! This Brooklyn-based power-trio is the real deal, and their LP harkens back to the golden age when heavy rock music was upbeat, skillfully played, energetic, edgy, and bursting with goodtime sunshine vibes. They come hard with a strong backbone of deep-pocket funky flare and an earnest/uplifting southern/country/mountain rock vibe, layered with waves of psychedelic textures that explode into jaw-dropping proto-metal moves. And throughout their progressive arrangements and timeless grooves are lush and powerfully delivered vocals, stacked with gorgeous harmonies and maddeningly catchy verses and choruses singing the tales of real-life loves, losses, and the drive to keep on keepin on! This album is a sure treat for fans of classic underground hard rock such as Truth and Janey, Dust, and Josefus as well as fans of classic UK psychedelia such as The Move, The Pretty Things, and Mighty Baby. THE GOLDEN GRASS will also greatly appeal to folks into the contemporary sounds of Danava, Horisont, Graveyard, and Dead Man.

Image

KILLIMANJARO - HOOK
This LP offers a 36-mimute heavy metal trip, full of catchy riffs à la Iron Maiden, recorded by a Portuguese trio with its roots in the realms of stoner rock.

Image

MANTAR - DEATH BY BURNING (BLACK)
Gatefold, black vinyl version. Recorded earlier in 2013 and titled "Death By Burning", the album is a raw, self produced and 100% DIY display of power. The half German, half Turkish band has existed for less than a year and released one limited run 7" - probably sold out by the time you read this. MANTAR manages to sound heavier than most five piece bands you may know, in spite of the fact that no bass guitar was used on this record. Just drums and guitar set for destruction. Forget about Rock 'n Roll. This will hurt. Flogging beats and blackened melodies meet feedback orgies and doom mayhem. Early Melvins, Motorhead, Darkthrone. You name it. Don't call it sludge though. Everything as black as possible. A soundtrack for the final battle.

Image

OLDE GROWTH - THE OWL
Two piece doom/sludge band Olde Growth return with their second release. This time they cut back on the sludge and go in a more psych direction ala Sungrazer. This album has been said to sound like Black Sabbath meets Queens of the Stone Age. There is a real attention to melody, harmony, and structure on The Owl that makes it as pleasing to the ear as any psychedelic inspired metal album you'll find this year. 200 copies Gold cover on Black Wax.

Image

PENTAGRAM - (SPLATTER) IF THE WINDS WOULD CHANGE

You can look forward to official, cool, limited edition, collectible vinyl, shirts, screen-printed posters and much more directly from me. We think that youll find our items visually as well as audibly pleasing. This is the very first RamFam album! It is also in honor of our 40th Anniversary. Weve got a couple of other great, limited albums lined up for the coming year ahead. The albums will cover our entire career of songs! This first album in the limited RamFam LP series covers songs I wrote in the early 70s. They were recorded at various rehearsals and such. All are special to me and I wanted to deliver them to you in their honest, most raw form. I think youll feel the heart of these as strongly as we all do. Bobby Liebling Jan, 2011

YOB - THE GREAT CESSATION (2LP)
Stoughton gatefold jacket. A classic that rabidly demanded to be reprinted! This is the best fucking album Yob has done! Contains two bonus tracks not available on the CD version. Doom is meant to be dour and slow, but here it's also furious. The riffs, the vocals, the deliberate, pummeling rhythm (courtesy of Yob alumni Travis Foster on drums and bassist Aaron Reiseberg) - it seethes from start to finish, and as a statement of intent for 'The Great Cessation', you can't get any better. Black vinyl.

A cool title in the 10-inch split series with releases featuring an incarnation of Amenra, together with a sometimes surprising, but always compelling counterpart band. In this case Amenra, who deliver a live recording of 'A Mon Ame', team up with the eager young Belgian sludge/doom outfit Eleanora.

AMENRA/TREHA SEKTORI - SPLIT (10")
A cool title in the 10-inch split series with releases featuring an incarnation of Amenra, together with a sometimes surprising, but always compelling counterpart band. In this case Amenra, who contribute an atmospheric ambient piece called 'Trahn', are joined by Treha Sektori, the alter ego of French dark ambient and drone master Dehn Sora.

BEELZEFUZZ - BEELZEFUZZ
Limited vinyl issue. Beelzefuzz is a heavy rock trio from North East Maryland, formed in 2009. Having released a 4-song demo in 2010 they established a loyal fan base in the US, which eventually led to signing with Germany's Church Within Records in 2012. Beelzefuzz incorporates a very unique style of heavy music similar to the classic sounds of early '70s bands such as Uriah Heep, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, as well as contemporary groups à la 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.

Image

BOSTON - LIFE, LOVE & HOPE (2LP)
Of 'LIFE, LOVE & HOPE', band leader Tom Scholz said, "These are all songs from the heart, each of them taking many months of effort to write, arrange, perform and record, always up to the demands of BOSTON's harshest critic, me. They have all been meticulously recorded to analogue tape on the same machines and equipment used for BOSTON's hits for the past 35 years." Boston is a staple of US Classic Rock Radio playlists. Boston's best-known works include the songs 'More Than a Feeling', 'Peace of Mind', 'Foreplay/Long Time', 'Rock And Roll Band', 'Smokin'', 'Don't Look Back' and 'Amanda'. They have sold over 31 million albums in the United States alone. Their self-titled debut holds the record for being the highest selling debut album in history and will likely never lose that distinction. This ROCK CLASSICS Deluxe vinyl version Features 2 BONUS TRACKS not on the FRONTIERS CD version. SIDE A: 1. Heaven On Earth 2. Didn't Mean To Fall In Love 3. Last Day Of School SIDE B 4. Sail Away 5. Life, Love & Hope 6. If You Were In Love SIDE C 7. Someday 8. Love Got Away 9. Someone SIDE D 10. You Gave Up On Love 11. Te Quiero Mia (bonus track) 12. The Way You Look Tonight 13. Oh Canada (bonus track)

BURZUM - THE WAYS OF YORE (2LP)
'The Ways Of Yore' is BURZUM's 12th album, and it showcases a similar style as Burzum's previous ambient albums, though there is a difference in the vocal expression. The combination of haunting story telling channeled through those typical vocals, combined with Burzum's musical genius,l resulted in a very interesting and innovative work.

HELL, THE - GROOVEHAMMER
UK's THE HELL have been raising eyebrows and wrecking havoc in the HC scene with the release of their critically acclaimed and despised debut album 'You're Listening To The Hell'. Featuring "big riffs, memorable hooks and enough shout-along moments to guarantee pandemonium at any gig" (according to Metal Hammer) 'Groovehammer' was self-recorded, mixed and mastered at Titan Studios in Watford, UK and features thirteen venomous, in-your-face HC-anthems.

Slegest came to life when Ese left the band Vreid in 2010, where he played guitar on four albums. For Slegest, Ese wanted to use his Black Sabbath-influences and combine these with harsh vocals. This resulted in a special blend of classic heavy rock and old-school black metal elements, creating a dark and sinister sound combined with lots of groove. The self-titled Slegest debut-EP was released in 2012 and got very good feedback from the metal scene. Shortly thereafter Ese started working on his debut album, resulting in the release of 'Loyndom'. With 'Loyndom' Slegest takes its original sound one step further, without losing any of the dirtiness or catchy grooves. Apart from playing all the instruments (except a guest solo from his former band mate Sture), Ese also recorded and mixed most of the album himself. Slegest's combination of heavy and classic hard rock with old-school mid-paced black metal is a crushing experience, and fans of heavy and groovy extreme metal wont be disappointed.

WHEN NOTHING REMAINS - AS ALL TORN ASUNDER (2LP)
The debut-album of the project founded by members of famous Swedish band NOX AUREA. 'As All Torn Asunder' is 70 minutes of refined melodic doom death metal carefully composed by musicians who put their souls into every part of this masterpiece. This album is sure to please fans of modern doom death metal in the vein of Nox Aurea, Ablaze In Hatred, Swallow The Sun and Draconian.

WHEN NOTHING REMAINS - THY DARK SERENITY (2LP)
Their second album is highly anticipated by fans of this Swedish group and melodic doom death metal in general! For those who are not familiar with WHEN NOTHING REMAINS, this album may appear as a real discovery, while for those who are already inspired by their music 'The Dark Serenity' will become another blissful touch to the soul and the heart.

BEELZEFUZZ - BEELZEFUZZ
Limited vinyl issue. Beelzefuzz is a heavy rock trio from North East Maryland, formed in 2009. Having released a 4-song demo in 2010 they established a loyal fan base in the US, which eventually led to signing with Germany's Church Within Records in 2012. Beelzefuzz incorporates a very unique style of heavy music similar to the classic sounds of early '70s bands such as Uriah Heep, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, as well as contemporary groups à la 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.

SATAN'S SATYRS - DIE SCREAMING (UK)
Something sinister is looming in the mist - a ghastly three-headed apparition, equal parts riffage and rancour and fuelled by a steady diet of garage rock 7-inches played at 33RPM and horror movies watched at 5AM, the primeval force of Satan's Satyrs is returned to the earth to lay waste to everything in its path. Rising from the primordial ooze of Herndon, Virginia Satan's Satyrs hit the metal underground like a tidal wave of sulphur with their debut proper, 2012's 'Wild Beyond Belief'. This almighty assault, almost entirely the work of chief Satyr Clayton Burgess, was a harrowing blast of fuzz-drenched aggro - a clash of Venom-esque metalpunk squalor and in-the-red garage-rock dementia. This time around, the band set about expanding their sound, maintaining their trash-obsessed aesthetic whilst sharpening their songcraft to produce an album possessed of both mighty heaviosity and incisive hooks. Bolstered by roaring Hammond and percussive ornamentation that bring still more Hammer Horror atmosphere to the fray, 'Die Screaming' transcends the band's Black Sabbath, Stooges and Black Flag influences to arrive at a relentlessly gory and gung-ho assault on the senses. One minute, this terror-troupe are dishing out the rotten rock n'roll of 'One By One (They Die)' and 'Curse Of The Corpse', which stalk the Earth like the reanimated corpses of Budgie and Blue Oyster Cult records past. The next, on the jaw-dropping title-track, they're throwing Death SS, the Alice Cooper of 'Sick Things' and Scott Reagers-era Saint Vitus into a bubbling cauldron and standing well back. Yet at all times Satan's Satyrs gonzo attack is authentically red in both tooth and claw.

Image

BARBARIAN - FAITH EXTINGUISHER
Their 2012 split with BUNKER 66 predicted a change in approach, a direction which they continue here. Nevertheless, the seven tracks on 'Faith Extinguisher' are still 666% pure BARBARIAN. This album is a sermon of allegiance to ALL things metal the '80s way.

BURY TOMORROW - RUNES (BLACK) (2LP)
BURY TOMORROW's debut album 'Portraits' was a prime example of how metalcore should be played, showing flashes of brilliance usually expected from bands far older and more experienced. With equal emphasis on heaviness and melody, they have forged a sound that is as crushing as it is catchy. Their melodies are rich and soaring, guitarist Jason Cameron's husky singing tones invoking the classic '80s Stadium Rock vibe, whilst frontman Danis monstrous roars and energy coupled with the water-tight riffs of the band make for a salivating prospect. Double-LP edition on black vinyl!

EQUILIBRIUM - ERDENTEMPLE (2LP)
Double-LP on clear vinyl. Germany's epic metal pioneers EQUILIBRIUM set aflame a new bonfire with their fourth attempt 'Erdentempel'. Guitarist, composer and lyricist Ren Berthiaume spent almost four years working on this material. The result is a very emotional and above all very personal album, that leads back to the roots of the band, without neglecting the bombast of the previous two records. Melodic metal, powerful yet playful, heavy but emotional, inspired but independent.

Image

GLASSJAW - WORSHIP AND TRIBUTE

Enter 2014, the 34th year of the band's existence marks another milestone for OVERKILL: the 17th album, 'White Devil Armory'.

PROFETUS - AS ALL SEASONS DIE (BLACK)

RIPPIKOULU - MUSTA SEREMONIA (BLACK)
This album is one of the best kept secrets in the Finnish underground metal scene. It is also the very first death metal recording with lyrics spat out in the Finnish language. Rippikoulu began their musical endeavours back in the late eighties, and like so many of their contemporaries, evolved from primitive punk noise to death metal. However, while many bands played death metal with groovy riffing and overall headbanging attitude, Rippikoulu's choice of style was darker. Their downtuned metal is bleak and nearly unbearably heavy in its execution, dark and soul-searching in its themes, intertwining faster bursts of chaos with slow, doomy passages. Rippikoulu released the Musta Seremonia demo album on tape in 1993 and then disappeared. They never gained much popularity in their time, but their legacy has steadily grown in time. Countless metal fans worldwide have adored their shoddy bootleg copies of the Musta Seremonia tape - now the stars are finally right for a legitimate re-release. The album has been remastered from the original DAT master tape, cleaned up and amplified. Two separate masters were created, a louder, bass-heavy one for the CD and a more vintage sounding one for the vinyl edition. So, the new decade begins with the unleashing of this shadowy beast upon the planet. It comes forth in gatefold vinyl.

VANHELGD - RELICS OF SULPHUR SALVATION
Having released two well-received LPs via the Nuclear War Now label, including 2011's outstanding and underrated' Church Of Death', Swedish band VANHELGD makes a big leap in production quality on 'Relics Of Sulphur Salvation'. These eight complex and memorable songs strike with an urgent ferocity not seen in other so-called "boundary-pushing" or "progressive" releases in recent memory. Vanhelgd's natural skill for crafting monumental death metal songs suggests early At The Gates, Entombed, and even elements of My Dying Bride.

SCYTHIA - ...OF CONQUEST
Scythia's fourth release is a powerful concept album that draws influences from folk metal, power metal, melodic death metal, and progressive rock. '...Of Conquest' blends these styles into a seamless storyline, complete with an onslaught of memorable riffs, all-too-catchy choruses, instrumental virtuosity and a bold new production style that far exceeds any of their previous releases.

Image

SCYTHIA - ...OF EXILE
'...Of Exile' is a musical tale of betrayal and redemption set in Scythia's unique soundscape that borrows elements from folk, progressive rock and metal. This album features a dynamic blend of male and female voices (both harsh and sung), classical instruments including cello, oboe and trumpet as well as professional sound design to give the album a larger-than-life appeal. This record was produced and mixed by the renowned Shaun Thingvold (Strapping Young Lad, Zimmer's Hole, Lamb of God, Fear Factory) in Vancouver, BC. - Abort Mag

Image

SCYTHIA - ...OF WAR
"Odin-approved one-two punch of "Fierce Riders of Scythia" and "The Black Death" that kicks off '...Of War,' - Decibel Magazine - This Record Rules Feature. "A brilliant album" - Metal-Revolution.com. "What sets Scythia apart from the others is its specific attention to quality musicianship. The music is adventurous, creative, and epic." - MetalUnderground.com. "I really enjoyed the first single, "Fierce Riders Of Scythia" and I found myself immediately drawn into their world and once there, did not want to leave. The fascinating blend of metal and Russian/Middle Eastern folk music is quite surprising and exceptionally good." - PureGrainAudio. "Tracks like "The Black Death" and "Warrior's Anthem" serve as vast soundscapes versus standard metal tunes, that firmly place Scythia as a band of gypsy minstrels in this renaissance period of swashbuckling tales of swordplay. " - Metal-Rules.com

Image

SCYTHIA - FOR THE BEAR
The intention of this EP was to capture Scythia as they sound live. They have chosen to abandon fancy post-production sound effects and extensive guest musicians in favour of capturing the energy and excitement of these compositions. 'Fierce Riders Of Scythia', 'Black Death' and 'Dies Irae Pt. 1' were originally recorded back in 2009 and appeared on Scythias debut .Of War' release. These tracks have been re-recorded and re-mixed to capture the mood and intensity of Scythia's current line-up.

Reissue on 180-gram audiophile vinyl, presented with an insert. 'Twitch' is Ministry's second studio album, originally released in 1986. The album stepped away from the pop-oriented form of their previous album 'With Sympathy' and moved towards a darker, more aggressive sound with elements of EBM.

OBSEQUIAE - SUSPENDED IN THE BRUME OF EOS
Now also released on vinyl! Storming out of the frozen North, Minnesota's OBSEQUIAE released their debut album 'Suspended In The Brume Of Eos' on CD in 2011. Obsequiae crafts meticulous, beautifully harmonic odes to times now passed into legend, conjuring images of a medieval Europe upon which modern life has yet to infringe.

METAL/HARDROCK/THRASH/DOOM/SOUTHERN ROCK - Compact Disc

ATLAS MOTH - THE OLD BELIEVER
Chicago's THE ATLAS MOTH has always been hard to categorize. Drawing from a myriad of influences and styles, their sound is one of the most unique and unusual in today's American underground scene. The main ingredients often include progressive and psychedelic metal, both crushingly heavy and sublimely beautiful. On their third full-length release, The Atlas Moth unleash their most glorious and emotionally riveting work yet. 'The Old Believer' exceeds all previous efforts on the strength of its unparalleled songwriting and focused presentation.

Image

BENEATH THE STORM - TEMPLES OF DOOM
BENEATH THE STORM is a mysterious one-man sludge wrecking machine from Sloveina featuring Igor Shimon. His aim is to create the most brutal and slowest sound possible. Influences come from genres such as sludge, doom, funeral doom, stoner and drone. 'Temples Of Doom' is manufactured in an edition of 300 CD and presented in a digisleeve. Recommended to fans of a.o. AHAB, ELECTRIC WIZARD, EYEHATEGOD and NOOTHGRUSH.

Image

DIFLEGER - DREAMCATCHER
Influenced by artists such as AmenRa, Rosetta and Lustmord, DIFLEGER (from Minsk, Belarus) combines experimental tunes, meditational elements, massive walls of distorted guitars, samples and other instruments, resulting in a unique post-metal assault. The album 'Dreamcatcher' (digitally self-produced by the band in 2013) is now available on CD. This edition of 300 copies comes with two previously unreleased bonus tracks and is presented in a digisleeve.

Image

FROM OCEANS TO AUTUMN - A PERFECT DAWN
FROM OCEANS TO AUTUMN was founded by Brandon Helms (guitars, samples) in the summer of 2006, shortly after laying to rest his previous band, Autumn Is Forever, which had a long run between 1997 and 2004. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, From Oceans To Autumn create an intriguing and massive style of "space metal", rooted in "atmospheric/post-metal/rock". So far, the band's discography is comprised of two full lengths, a split EP and two concept albums on Silber Media Records. 'A Perfect Dawn', released in a limited edition CD with digisleeve, presents the band at its best, with tons of guitars, bass, drums and even some piano, resulting in surprisingly melodic and epic atmospheres. Recommended to fans of f.i. ISIS, ROSETTA and CULT OF LUNA.

Image

HOLLOW LEG - INSTINCT
U.S. sludge monsters HOLLOW LEG re-release their album 'Instinct' under the flag of ARGONAUTA Records. The band, a duo now quartet, is an enormously toned groove engine hailing from the highways between Deland and Jacksonville, Florida. Their first full length, 'Instinct', as a duo of guitar and drums from late 2010 and released independently (now completely sold-out), was an action blown forth by their inherent and creative strengths housed within its lyrics and riffs. Since their incarnation as a duo, Hollow Leg has held live performances akin to Sleep and Eyehategod cooperatively steering a runaway freight train through the center of a volcano. 'Instinct' is now again available for a full new life. A massive assault of slow head-banging music!

HOWLING WIND - VORTEX
The Howling Wind, a duo featuring Ryan Lipynsky (Unearthly Trance, Serpentine Path) and Tim Call (Aldebaran), present their fourth album, the follow up to their critically-acclaimed full-length 'Of Babylon'. 'Vortex' is a blast of ferocious and raw black metal, but with welcomed influences of stoner rock, death metal, doom, and old fashioned rock'n'roll. There are nine songs in total, including a cover of 'Reapers Of Satan', originally by Swedish black metal band WAR. The CD is presented in a 6-panel digipak and is limited to 500 copies.

Image

MY GRANDE FINALE - OCEAN HEART
MY GRANDE FINALE started as a DIY solo project by Markus Grönfors from Tampere, Finland. His full-length 'Ocean Heart' is presented in a digisleeve and limited to 300 copies. This work is recommended to fans of a.o. PELICAN, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU, YEAR OF NO LIGHT and GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT.

Image

POSEIDON (RUSSIA) - INFINITY
Though the earliest outings from Russian band Poseidon could be described as "extreme progressive metal" and "sludge influenced post-metal", 2014's 'Infinity' also adds some serious cinematographic and avant-garde qualities. The result is an original wall of sound, reminding of the aggressive tunes of THE OCEAN and the theatrical vibe of VED BUENS ENDE.

Image

SHABDA - TUMMO
This trio from Northern Italy crafts meditative, repetitive sounds, with the aim to fuse Indian music, doom metal and minimalism into a trance inducing, often somber droning ritual. Their first record, 'The Electric Bodhisattva', was released in 2013 by Paradigms Recordings. This 2014 follow-up focuses on kundalini alchemy by means of deep guitar tunes, microtonal intervals and ritual documents recorded in Varanasi, Sarnath and Amber.

SUTEKH HEXEN - MONUMENT OF DECAY
Now also on CD! Another unrelenting hellish black maelstrom from Sutekh Hexen. This 2013 release was recorded with a more fully formed line-up and more orthodox instrumentation, including vocals/effects, dual guitars and live percussion. The original EP contains four tracks, this issue also includes ten additional minutes of bonus dystopia.

Image

VARIOUS - TLILTIC TLAPOYAUAK (2CD)
Compilation of bands related to the Black Twilight Circle. The package is a 6-panel gatefold with a 20-page booklet, 5-colour printing and includes 2 CDs. This just reaffirms why The Black Twilight Circle (a group of predominantly Mexican/Guatemalan underground musicians/artists and their bands located throughout southern California) are the most important thing in black metal today. It's amazing to see the growth in the returning bands - Arizmenda's track might just be the best thing they've ever done. Axeman's song could be one of the best black metal songs EVER. Even the newer bands manage to pull their own weight. Kampilan rocks the foundation with their thundering brand of filthy death/doom while In Lakech Ala Kin triumphantly represent the disturbed brand of atmospheric black metal The Black Twilight Circle has become known for. Seriously, any and every black metal fan needs to get their hands ALL OVER THIS. Hopefully, this is a prelude to a whole slew of releases from this enigmatic group of bands, and if it is, the underground has a lot to look forward to.

CATAPULT THE DEAD - ALL IS SORROW (BLACK)
Limited edition of 250 copies on 160-gram black vinyl, presented in a poly bag and including an illustrated, hand-numbered booklet and digital download. Catapult The Dead hails from the bleak and fearsome depths of the East Bay Tarpits. Their album 'All Is Sorrow' is a keyboard and organ-driven doom metal affair, something you do not normally witness in the world of doom, normally centered on loud and monolithic guitars and crushing drums. It's Gothic and almost baroque and has set the band completely apart from the rest when it comes to atmospheric sludge metal and post-HC. - CVLTNATION. 'All Is Sorrow' is one 37-minute opus, intended to be listened to without any interruptions.

Image

CONAN - MONNOS
Conan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. A three piece, in the grand tradition of many amazing fabulous three pieces that hold a tight line and an iron-grip command over the uber-synchronised chord changes and tempo-shifts of the holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two men have the task of vocalising wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan. They bear it well, for the task is immense. Conan have committed their filthy, ocean-sized sound to wax (and the slightly less cvlt compact disc) twice thus far- with more fetid output always on the horizon. First came the hulking mass of debut album Horseback Battle Hammer (Throne, Aurora Borealis), followed by a split with like-minded sludge-lords, Slomatics (Head of Crom, Burning World). In December 2011 Conan returned to the remote wilderness of Foel Studio, Wales and into the capable hands of producer Chris Fielding for their next album which is to be released on Burning World Records in Spring 2012. The vinyl version of Monnos will be presented at the prestigous Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland were Conan will perform.

Image

OMMADON - V (2LP)
This LP is recommended to fans of a.o. Sunn O))), Electric Wizard and Conan. The downtuned demonic dynamic duo known as Ommadon lurch forth from their slumber to lay waste to the world of man once more. They maketh the earth shake, the skies blacken and the seas boil with their searing, scalding ur-doom sound. Ommadon is a two headed beast of doom and you will bow down before its four eyes.

Image

ONSLAUGHT - (BLACK) POWER FROM HELL
Black vinyl, 425gsm heavy cardboard cover, lyric sheet, poster. Simple truth no. 1: There are classic albums that simply must be available. Always. On vinyl, of course. That truly accounts for the first full-length album by legendary U.K.-thrashers Onslaught, whose debut from 1985 is counted among the most influential cult classics of the nascent thrash metal scene. Onslaught first started out as a punk outfit, heavily influenced by bands like Discharge and G.B.H. on the one hand, and more metallic acts such as Motorhead , Exodus, Slayer and Venom on the other hand. "Power From Hell" does not betray these roots, being as filthy, mean and aggressive as it gets. On this early release raw punk riffing meets satanic evilness, while Paul Mahoney delivers strangled vocals that come straight from the hellish depths of your local squats manky cellar, totally reflecting the spirit of a time when music was not labelled but lived. Seen from the perspective of metal history, "Power From Hell" is all the more important for another reason: It was here that founding member Nige Rocket coined the term "Death Metal" for the very first time. Anyone objecting to this shall be remembered that Possessed recorded "Seven Churches" a month after the release of "Power from Hell"!

SERPENTINE PATH - EMANATIONS
'Emanations' is the sophomore album from NYC doom super group SERPENTINE PATH. The band's 2012 self-titled debut was a boldly grim statement of unforgiving misanthropy that referenced both the filthy riffs of Autopsy and the stoney doom of Sleep. Now officially augmented by second guitarist STEPHEN FLAM, the mastermind behind NYC doom/death legends WINTER, Serpentine Path are truly a heavy metal all-star team (the band also features current and former members of doom legends ELECTRIC WIZARD, UNEARTHLY TRANCE, and RAMESSES). Sure, the pedigree is undeniable, but regardless of their 'members of' status, SERPENTINE PATH are one of the heaviest bands on the planet today, and one of the very best in the genre!

'Creatures' is the second full album by the Belgian trio. Like the previous album, 'The Sea Shaper', this is also a co-production between dunk!records and Revolvermann Records. This time also Emotionally Unstable Records joins the party. The album is released on vinyl only. Of course in a beautiful designed cover, black inner sleeve and 180g clear vinyl or black splatter on clear vinyl. Then we haven't even talked about the music yet! Or, just check it out yourself.

TOMBS - SAVAGE GOLD (2LP)
Tombs' third full-length, 'Savage Gold', focuses the awesome strength of the band's previous works into one brilliantly dark post-punk and extreme black-metal masterpiece. Recorded and produced by Hate Eternal's ERIK RUTAN (Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore), 'Savage Gold' expands upon the moody post-punk foundations that Tombs' previous albums explored while also bringing out the band's most traditional metal moments yet. Once every few years a record comes along that sets a new benchmark for what can be done in heavy music. This is that moment and this is that record.

BLOODY HAMMERS - UNDER SATAN'S SUN
Limited vinyl, gatefold sleeve. BLOODY HAMMERS, the band revolving around the charismatic mastermind Anders Manga, release their third album 'Under Satan's Sun' which follows once more the dark paths populated by sinister characters and spectral apparitions. Dark occult rock with a pinch of H.P. Lovecraft and Ray Bradbury is the main attraction of the show, when the master of ceremonies Anders Manga opens the gates to the netherworld. 'Under Satan's Sun' is a multilayered album that resembles a classic horror flick from the '70s. An album filled with charm, big refrains and a classy atmosphere.

Image

EURYALE - EURYALE
Euryale is the joint project of Terraformer and Kokomo, both signed on dunk!records. With Euryale they hit the stage all together to throw some heaviness to the audience like you would expect if youve heard both bands. This release comes in a nice and dark designed cover. The 12" vinyl is one side with music and one side with silkscreen print.

CROSS VAULT - (DIGI) SPECTRES OF REVOCABLE LOSS
Collectors Edition in Digipack (ltd. 1000), incl. poster-booklet. If the name WARNING (UK) as a main influence rings any bells, and you're of the opinion that CLASSIC DOOM METAL should first and foremost be slow, harmonious, sorrowful and crushing, yet never tiring, boring, repetitive or lacking in variety; that the most important ingredients are masterful songwriting, flawless musicianship and an unreal (really! we're in awe) vocal performance, then this is THE Doom Metal album you should write on top of your to-buy-list for 2014! The album includes 5 own compositions that focus on the subject of loss, as well as a cover of the WARNING (UK)-track "Footprints" which quite honestly sounds as if it belongs on this album.

Image

PURPLE HILL WITCH - PURPLE HILL WITCH
Purple Hill Witch was summoned out of the Norwegian countryside about three years ago. The young trio (who's members also play in Spectral Haze, Condor and Flight) are heavily influenced by bands such as Pentagram, Witchfinder General and Black Sabbath, complimented by the filthiness of old heavy- and thrash-metal bands from the '70s and '80s. Following the debut 7-inch 'Alchemy', this is the band's first full length album.

Image

RIBERA, MANNY - MANNY RIBERA
Coming from different backgrounds of rock, the members of MANNY RIBERA form an entity capable of delivering the grooves and big sound of the seventies, coupled with the melodic eighties, screaming through the grunge and metal of the nineties and landing in the heavy stoner rock from the new millennium. Combining these elements, a big, dynamic and refreshingly raw sound is delivered right into your spinal cord. It starts rocking your caveman genes, making it impossible not to put your chin out and grow beard whilst banging your head. That's what MANNY RIBERA is all about, having the time of their lives.

Image

SAOR - AURA (DIGI)
Saor, meaning "Free" in Scottish and Irish Gaelic, is a one-man Atmospheric Celtic Metal band from Glasgow, Scotland, formed in 2012 by Andy Marshall. Saors sound is a blend of styles influenced by Scottish Folk, Atmospheric Black Metal and Post-Rock, using traditional Celtic Folk instruments such as Tin Whistle, Bagpipes and Bodhran together with the raw power and emotion of Black Metal and atmospheric elements of Post-Rock. Lyrically, Saor deals with themes such as Scottish heritage, Highland nature/landscapes and sorrow, influenced by a deep connection to the Scottish Highlands and its culture and history. As well as composing original lyrics, some are derived from the works of famous Scottish poets. The CD comes as collectors edition in 6-page digipack, limited to 1000 copies.

Image

WOODS OF DESOLATION - (JEWEL) TOWARD THE DEPTHS
JEWEL case version. Everyone who discovered Woods Of Desolation only with the brilliant "Torn Beyond Reason" now has the chance to check out their excellent debut album as well. The original press of the CD, which was limited to a mere 500 copies, sold out quickly and is now a much sought-after collectors item. The same goes for the 300-copies vinyl edition. While the music may be harsher than "Torn Beyond Reason", the desolation their band name implies, as well as the melancholy and beauty of their most recent album, are also very much apparent in "Toward The Depths", and so the album comes highly recommended for Depressive Black Metal-junkies in general and all W.O.D. fans in particular.

EXPECTED - 2014.25

METAL/HARDROCK/THRASH/DOOM/SOUTHERN ROCK - Single (7")

Image

AMULET - CUT THE CRAP
Five-piece AMULET is inspired by the golden-era of heavy metal and hard rock, but they add a focused and slightly doomy, riff-heavy sound of their own. Expect short songs with catchy vocals, heavy riffs, soaring leads and bone-shaking bass, driven to the limit with pounding drums. A sound that fits somewhere after "classic" BLACK SABBATH, but before METALLICA's scene-defining debut.

Image

CC COMPANY - RED BARON
Three tracks from CC COMPANY. Side A of this 7-inch contains 'Death Death Death', the AA-side offers 'The Snake' and 'Out Of Here'.

EXTREMELY ROTTEN - ZOMBIFICATION OF THE MASSES

Image

HARVEST BELL - WHEEL OF FORETASTE
Limited to 400 copies. This 7-inch features the songs 'Salutation' and 'Afterglow' recorded by a Finnish doom rock band with psychedelic tendencies. They seem to be influenced by Black Sabbath, The Doors and Hawkwind.

METAL/HARDROCK/THRASH/DOOM/SOUTHERN ROCK - Maxi Single

Image

MOURNFUL CONGREGATION - CONCRESCENCE OF THE SOPHIA
'Concrescence Of The Sophia' opens with its more-than-20-minute title track, where "the weight of all waters, and the mass of all stars" exacts a heavy toll in the timeless pursuit of mystical knowledge. The monumental main riff onerously gives foundation to DAMON GOOD's ardently howling leads and sepulchral lament, while acoustic interludes offer only temporary respite to doom's forgone conclusion. B-side 'Silence Of The Passed', clocking in at a mere nine minutes, foretells how vast is the agency of doom.

METAL/HARDROCK/THRASH/DOOM/SOUTHERN ROCK - LP (Album)

AEROSMITH - BAYING AT THE SUN (2LP)
Pressed on double-LP, these high energy recordings were made in Boston during Aerosmith's 1978 national tour in support of their fifth album, 'Draw The Line'. It was broadcast live-as-it-happened on local FM station WBCN.

BLACK MONOLITH - PASSENGER
Black Monolith's debut LP 'Passenger' is a raw and accurate representation of what black metal combined with elements of grind and crust could sound like.

Image

ETERNITY - ETERNITY
Originally recorded in 1979-'80 and released on a private label in 1981, many of the songs on Eternity's s/t LP originate from an earlier period in the '70s, giving this basement hard rock release an "out of time" quality.

This set is sure to please fans of '70s proto-stoner, hard-rock, "out of time" private press treasures, and your uncle who still drives that 72 Camaro.

The record features a cover of Joan Baez's "Diamonds & Rust", a track that would become a live favourite from then onwards. The album was remastered in 2001, with two bonus tracks added.

Image

SOLSTAFIR - OTTA (2LP/BLACK)
Double-LP edition on black vinyl. SOLSTAFIR are different. Their unique blend of metal with beautiful melodies, psychedelic moments and a strong undercurrent of classic/hard-rock comes as varied and at times appealingly bizarre as the landscapes of their native Iceland. Their fifth full-length 'Otta' is the logical continuation of the musical course this four-piece adopted on the highly acclaimed forerunner 'Svartir Sandar' (2011). Expect the unexpected, such as seduction by subtle strings or a hypnotic banjo. This album needs to be heard again and again to peel back layers of details, each different and yet always revealing the same: great songs - all of them. Recommended if you like ENSLAVED, BARONESS, MASTODON, AGALLOCH, LONGDISTANCECALLING, PRIMORDIAL...

Image

VINTERSORG - TILL FJÄLLS
LP-edition presented in a great gatefold sleeve, strictly limited to 200 copies on ice-blue vinyl. It's black folk metal, but it's also epic, and gentle, and crushing, and operatic, and many other things. Vintersorg's voice is phenomenal. It's a baritone like you've never heard before.
