Debut album from a busy and popular Psychobilly/Garage band

ULJAS UUSI MAAILMA

Band:Kuolemanlaakso
Album:ULJAS UUSI MAAILMA
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Named after one of the lowest, dryest and hottest places on Earth, Kuolemanlaakso (”Death Valley”) took its first breath in the Spring of 2010. The band originally started out as a one man project of guitarist Laakso (Chaosweaver). Much influenced by ”Eparistera Daimones” of Triptykon, Laakso’s mission was to create an utterly dark and heavy album, full of catchy hooks and originality. A tragically beautiful world of its own. It was clear from the start that the lyrics would be recited in Finnish. They were inspired by Eino Leino’s (1878– 1926) poem collection ”Helkavirsiä”, the mystique of the Finnish forests and of the morbidness of the modern world.

The feedback from an unreleased 4-song demo recording was so overwhelmingly positive from fellow musicians, that Laakso decided to recruit some of them, and make Kuolemanlaakso a fully operating 5-head outfit. And not just anybody, but some of his favourite bandsmen: vocalist Kotamäki (Swallow the Sun, Barren Earth), guitarist Kouta (Chaosweaver, ex-Verjnuarmu), bassist Usva (Elenium, The Nibiruan) and drummer Tiera (Discard, Cult of Endtime).

The band packed their bags in February 2012 and flew to Woodshed Studio, Germany, which is operated by non other than V. Santura of Triptykon and Dark Fortress fame. Santura not only co-produced, mixed, mastered and engineered the crushing debut album ”Uljas uusi maailma” (”Brave New World”), but he also provided guest guitars on five tracks on it upon his own request as he liked the material so much.

 

 

NEW SOUND OF WAR

Band:IRON KNIGHTS
Album:NEW SOUND OF WAR
Label:METALBOX
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

‘New Sound Of War’ is the sophomore album from the British heavy metal band Stuka Squadron and marks a new stage in the band’s development. 2012 has been a busy and successful year for Stuka Squadron: following the official release of their debut album earlier this year, Stuka Squadron have marched across the UK several times over, played their debut shows in Germany and Czech Republic, and written and recorded their second album. The band’s live Missions are attracting increasing numbers of enthusiastic and loyal Legions of Squadroneers and Stuka Squadron are now busy preparing for further live work. The first confirmed date for 2013 is at Hammerfest V.

"Stuka Squadron’s force of will is a rare cause in itself, mixing bright-eyed ambition and spit 'n' sawdust endeavour that for their devoted - and sure-to-grow - legion of fans verges on unabashed delirium." Metal Hammer, Live Review May 2012

 

 

LEGIONS OF THE DEEP

Band:ARKHAM WITCH
Album:LEGIONS OF THE DEEP
Label:METAL ON METAL
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

ARKHAM WITCH is a name that should be already familiar to the old school heavy metal and doom fans, especially those into THE LAMP OF THOTH, the previous band of the vocalist Simon and drummer Emily. On their sophomore album the group serves one ridiculously catchy "hit" after another. Their influences are pretty obvious: DEEP SWITCH, HELL, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, JUDAS PRIEST, PENTAGRAM, SAINT VITUS, MANILLA ROAD... but at the same time it's not possible to mistake them for any other band (except for TLoT perhaps), as their personality shines strongly through their music and attitude. It's straightforward doom and NWOBHM laden traditional metal, occult, but with a tinge of humor, with these trademark bard/brigand type vocals of Simon. And if it makes you do weird moves and speak in strange tongues, you are not alone... you've just joined the Legions of the Deep!

 

 

THE NIGHTMARE

Band:BURNING SAVIOURS
Album:THE NIGHTMARE
Label:NIGHT TRIPPER
Format:VINYL 7"
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Burning Saviours came together in 2003 when Mikael Marjanen (guitar) and Martin Wijkström (drums) discussed starting a heavy rock/doom metal band. They named the band after a Pentagram song from the album Day of Reckoning. They teamed up with bassist Fredrik Evertsson and vocalist Andrei Amartinesei to record their first demo entitled Dayterrors in 2004. Amartinesei picked up guitar in addition to vocals for their second demo, The Crusade of Evil, also recorded in 2004. The band soon discarded their previous songs and recorded a new demo, Into the Abyss in late 2004. This demo generated enough buzz to get the band added to the annual German "Doom Shall Rise III" festival in 2005 as well as a record contract with I Hate Records. Their self-titled debut was released in May 2005. Hundus, their second album, was released in June 2006 on I Hate Records. A single was released on Rise Above Records in December 2006. In late 2006, vocalist/guitarist Andrei Amartinesei parted ways with the band and was replaced by Fredrik Andersson on vocals and Henry Pyykkö on guitar. In October 2007 their third album, Nymphs and Weavers was released by Transubstans Records. The band splits-up in january 2008.

Now it is official. Burning Saviours is back as a group in August 2010!.

DEMOS.

Band:ABOMINATION
Album:DEMOS.
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Death Metal

12”LP gatefold / A2 poster / insert

Along with DEATH STRIKE, SPECKMANN PROJECT and FUNERAL BITCH, ABOMINATION is the last of the many aliases used by Paul Speckmann at some point of his career to carry out his vision while for one reason or another, MASTER had to be put on the backburner for a while. But whereas all the others proved to be short-lived affairs, ABOMINATION turned out to be a much more solid and productive affair, producing two full-lenghts and one EP in the process. Yet, this is where it all started…

As Speckmann reveals himself in the extensive liner notes included with this deluxe LP, the beast awoken after he had met drummer Aaron Nicklas in 1986 while trying to keep FUNERAL BITCH afloat. Even if ABOMINATION was already an active band, it’s the combination of both Speckmann and Nicklas, completed by a series of guitar players, that really set things in motion.

Compiled here together and officially sanctioned by the band, their first two demos recordings from 1988 and 1989, simply known as the ‘Red Demo’ and the ‘Black Demo’, are reunited here for the first time on vinyl. Even if MASTER longtime fans will be able to instantly recognize Speckmann’s vitriolic stance and even some former MASTER/DEATH STRIKE material re-recorded (“The Truth”), ABOMINATION punkier and more hardcore-tinged approach set them apart from the start.

 

 

OUTSIDE LOOKING IN

Band:THE OFFHOOKS
Album:OUTSIDE LOOKING IN
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage

Some may recall The Offhooks as legends of the Scottish garage revival scene back in the late 80s/early 90s. So for all you hungry dogs who thought the dynamite mini LP ‘Off The Hook’ was the group’s only recorded legacy, here’s where things get exciting: a complete, previously unreleased album, recorded in March 1990 at Chamber Studios in Edinburgh! This is no set of demos or rehearsal tapes, this is the real deal – its original release was only scuppered by the bankruptcy of the intended label! But aside from the historical importance of this album, what about the crucial bit – the music? Rest assured – it’s a killer! Equal parts fuzz and jangle, pounding beat-tastic bass and drums [that’s hallowed Thanes frontman, Lenny Helsing rattling the traps], topped off with classic snarled-out angst-ridden vocals courtesy of Calvin Burt. 

RIYL Nuggets / Pebbles / Seeds / 60's Stones / Pretty Things / Chocolate Watch Band...Superb!

Voted #8 best reissue of 2011 in Shindig Readers’ Poll

LP Limited to 500 copies on 180gram vinyl, in authentic front-laminated 60s-style flipback sleeve
