CALIGULA

Band:LINGUA IGNOTA
Album:CALIGULA
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Industrial / Experimental

CALIGULA , the new album from LINGUA IGNOTA set for release on July 19th on CD/2xLP/Digital through Profound Lore Records, takes the vision of Kristin Hayter s vessel to a new level of grandeur, her purging and vengeful audial vision going beyond anything preceding it and reaching a new unparalleled sonic plane within her oeuvre. Succeeding her self-released 2017 All Bitches Die opus (re-released by Profound Lore Records in 2018), CALIGULA sees Hayter design her most ambitious work to date, displaying the full force of her talent as a vocalist, composer, and storyteller. Vast in scope and multivalent in its influences, with delivery nothing short of demonic, CALIGULA is an outsider s opera; magnificent, hideous, and raw. Eschewing and disavowing genre altogether, Hayter builds her own world. Here she fully embodies the moniker Lingua Ignota, from the German mystic Hildegard of Bingen, meaning unknown language this music has no home, any precedent or comparison could only be uneasily given, and there is nothing else like it in our contemporary realm. LINGUA IGNOTA has always taken a radical, unflinching approach to themes of violence and vengeance, and CALIGULA builds on the transformation of the survivor at the core of this narrative. CALIGULA embraces the darkness that closes in, sharpens itself with the cruelty it has been subjected to, betrays as it has been betrayed. It is wrath unleashed, scathing, a caustic blood-letting: Let them hate me so long as they fear me, Hayter snarls in a voice that ricochets from chilling raw power to agonizing vulnerability. Whilst CALIGULA is unapologetically personal and critically self-aware, there are broader themes explored; the decadence, corruption, depravity and senseless violence of emperor Caligula is well documented and yet still permeates today. Brimming with references and sly jabs, Hayter s sardonic commentary on abuse of power and invalidation is deftly woven. Working closely with Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets studio in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Hayter strips away much of the industrial and electronic elements of her previous work, approaching instead the corporeal intensity and intimate menace of her notorious live performances, achieved with unconventional recording techniques and sound sources, as well as a full arsenal of live instrumentation and collaborators including harsh noise master Sam McKinlay (THE RITA), visceral drummer Lee Buford (The Body) and frenetic percussionist Ted Byrnes (Cackle Car, Wood & Metal), with guest vocals from Dylan Walker (Full of Hell), Mike Berdan (Uniform), and Noraa Kaplan (Visibilities). CALIGULA is a massive work, a multi-layered epic that gives voice and space to that which has been silenced and cut out. TRACK LISTING: 1. FAITHFUL SERVANT FRIEND OF CHRIST, 2. DO YOU DOUBT ME TRAITOR , 3. BUTCHER OF THE WORLD, 4. MAY FAILURE BE YOUR NOOSE, 5. FRAGRANT IS MY MANY FLOWER D CROWN, 6. IF THE POISON WON T TAKE YOU MY DOGS WILL, 7. DAY OF TEARS AND MOURNING, 8. SORROW! SORROW! SORROW!. 9. SPITE ALONE HOLDS ME ALOFT, 10. FUCKING DEATHDEALER,11. I AM THE BEAST

In 2005 Gerry Anderson completed what was to be one of the most ambitious projects of his entire career: a computer animated reinvention of his cult Supermarionation classic Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons.

BEEN A LONG TIME COMING, BE A LONG TIME GONE

Band:DEVIL'S KITCHEN BAND
Album:BEEN A LONG TIME COMING, BE A LONG TIME GONE
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:ROCK N ROLL/PSYCH

Band-produced CD covers their entire rambling, gigging, rubbing-shoulders-with-a-multitude-of-famous-bands in the legendary San Francisco psychedelic scene of the late 1960 s existence. Duplicates only one track from the Lysergic Sound LP release of the band s recordings, one of our best sellers here at Lion Productions... which means eleven recordings get their debut on this disc! "Devil's Kitchen Band was a four-piece rock and roll band that lived and performed in San Francisco from the spring of 1968 through the summer of 1970. They were the house band at Chet Helm s Family Dog on the Great Highway, opening for, and often jamming with, many of the most well-known groups of the times. They performed at all of the major West Coast venues from San Francisco s Fillmore to L.A. s Whisky A Go Go. This CD is a collection of live recordings from 1969 and 1970 in San Francisco and is an attempt to give the listener the feel of being at a show at one of the venues of the times. The tracks were recorded on different days, in different halls, by different engineers. We have remastered these tracks to sound as much as possible as if they were all recorded the same evening as a coherent set of live music. We hope you enjoy this set of twelve songs from the late 60s San Francisco by one of the very talented but little known bands of the era. Peace, Love & Music, from Devil s Kitchen

 

 

NEGRA CIUDAD

Band:MANDHYLON
Album:NEGRA CIUDAD
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP
Genre:PSYCH/ROCK/BLUES/PROG

From the ashes of the mythical Argentine duo Sandhy & Mandhy—who recorded in 1969 the intensely rare and beloved album “Para Castukis” (reissued by Lion Productions on vinyl and CD), a record suffused with beat and psychedelic influences—comes this resurrection by Mandhy of his "Celestial Stories." Alberto Vanasco Jr. (Mandhy) resumes his musical tale with twelve tracks written between 1968 and 1978. Recorded with the analogue essence and sound of the 70s, using vintage instruments like Farfisa and Hammond organ, and fuzz guitar. Features Argentine rock legends Nexus as the backing band. A record which brings together all of the various crucial elements of Argentine rock music: psychedelia, heavy blues, classic rock, and progressive rock. Stunning!

EN REGARDENT PASSER LE TEMPS

Band:CARPE DIEM
Album:EN REGARDENT PASSER LE TEMPS
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP
Genre:FRENCH PROG/ROCK

“The album practically encompasses the diversity and inspiration of the French progressive rock underground. It is, easily, one of the finest albums to have emerged from that scene. At the risk of sounding like a raving fanboy, En Regardent Passer Le Temps is indeed a classic record for the ages.” —Greg Northrup, Progweed Formed in 1970, Carpe Diem started out playing covers by the likes of East of Eden, King Crimson, Deep Purple, and Uriah Heep in clubs along the French Riviera. Original compositions made their way into the band's repertoire over the five years between their formation and the release of their debut album, "En Regardent Passer Le Temps,” in 1976. Little wonder then that the band sounds as magnificently tight, polished and mature on this classic debut, truly one of the gems of the French rock scene. The success of the album brought them dates with other major French bands like Magma and Ange, led to the recording of a second album, and then ultimately to the sort of nearly total obscurity which deserves to be undone with a reissue such as this one!

 

 

KOONOOPOMANA

Band:KOONOOPOMANA
Album:KOONOOPOMANA
Label:SOUND EFFECT
Format:EP
Genre:GARAGE/PSYCH

Koonoopomana, the Athens, Greece, psychedelic/garage/r'n'r collective are finally debuting their first piece of wax! Their notorious live shows, accompanied by some powerhouse dj-sets, set them apart from your average '60s adoring punks; Koonoopomana is the real thing, as far as pop-art creativity and finesse go... Their self-titled EP, due out on Sound Effect Records on June 21st on limited edition black and red vinyl, contains some poisonous r'n'r grooves; like the bastard child of the Oh Sees, the 13th Floor Elevators and the Fleshtones, partying over Andy Warhol's grave!
Koonoopomana is the primal creature, the green 'n' purple mother of all poisons, the shape of things to come... Its sound is what haunted the ears of those who, partied with the demons at some Amazonian swamp, crossed to the Other Side through some remote jungle wormhole, only to be washed-up to outer space sensed the blink of the Poison Ivy from the deep dark of some exotic forest danced to the buzz of a thousand mosquito squadrons surfing the Nile! Koonoopomana is here to bite and suck this never ending blood!

 

 

ODYSSEY

Band:BOMBAY GROOVY
Album:ODYSSEY
Label:COSMIC EYE
Format:LP
Genre:PSYCH-ROCK/PSYCH-SOUL

Cosmic Eye Records proudly presents Bombay Groovy! The legendary Greek psych label is back, after a 2-years' hiattus, with a brand new release that brings the label to another level; Brazilian instro-psych combo Bombay Groovy are here to make waves through their debut international release "Odyssey", due out on July 5th, 2019, on limited vinyl! Hailing from the celebrated new wave of Brazilian psych, Bombay Groovy are an instrumental group essentially consisting of the transcendental sound of the Indian sitar, the intense and versatile grunt of the Hammond organ and notably syncopated drum lines. A renewed alliance between East and West within a boundless rock concept can be defined as the quest of the three young musicians from São Paulo, who are heavily inspired by the sounds and general aesthetics of the early 1970s. The listener can expect influences of bands such as The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Ananda Shankar, Jeff Beck, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Herbie Hancock, Soft Machine, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express, Graham Bond and even James Brown. However, the late 60s & early 70s references are adorned with an intensified Eastern twist. Vocal and verbal elements are replaced by a singular blend of sounds and mystic themes which gained the attention of the Brazilian music press and experimental retro Rock music enthusiasts from all over the planet.
"Odyssey" is a compilation curated by the Greek label Cosmic Eye alongside the group, featuring tracks from all the band's releases, from the accentuated psych sound of the self-titled debut album (2014) to the progressive/jazz rock sonorities of its successor, "Dandy do Dendê" (2016), and the art-funk double A single "Saturnalia/Devi" (2019).

THE TAKE

Band:TAKE, THE
Album:THE TAKE
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:CD
Genre:STREETPUNK/HARDCORE

"Hardcore used to be followed by the word punk and that’s what we originally wanted to create”. What emerged is a refreshing mix of punk, oi, hardcore and rock & roll with melodic yet raspy vocals and a new approach to underground music. Famed NYHC drummer Will Shepler (formerly of Agnostic Front, Madball) and Sick Of It All bassist Craig Setari (also formerly Agnostic Front) had an idea for a hardcore power trio. Will called longtime friend, guitarist/vocalist Scott Roberts (formerly of Biohazard, The Spudmonsters, Bloodclot!, Cro-Mags) who had just left Biohazard only weeks before. It was perfect timing for Scott as he wanted to move on and create something new from the ground up with complete creative freedom and passion. Soon after, Scott and Will began working on what would become The Take’s self titled debut record. Craig was busy with Sick Of It All’s hectic touring schedule so Scott recruited friend and oi veteran Carlos Congote (Royal Hounds, formerly of 45 Adapters, Urban Noise, Legion 76) to complete the lineup.

PARALLEL LINE

Band:PAPER BEAT SCISSORS
Album:PARALLEL LINE
Label:SEA YOU
Format:CD
Genre:ALT POP

Crabtree, born in Burnley, England, long since settled in Montreal, Canada is a decade into his existence as Paper Beat Scissors. By the music industry’s contemporary metrics, that’s long enough to build, ride, crash and burn a number of fleeting personae. In contrast, the arc of Paper Beat Scissors has been a rewarding, holistic slow burn. Following a steady stream of accomplished releases (covered by BBC, Rolling Stone and Exclaim, among others) and live appearances (alongside Mark Kozelek, Tanya Tagaq, Dan Mangan and My Brightest Diamond, for instance), Parallel Line focuses the sound we’ve come to love along the way: strong-willed chamber folk in the name of visceral tenderness.The creative journey that fed Parallel Line was slow and circuitous. Crabtree credits a myriad of learning opportunities as shaping the final work: late, hazy nights at The House Of Miracles with JJ Ipsen and Marshall Bureau in Cambridge, ON, forming the bedrock the album was built upon, chance bass clarinet jams with Jeremy Dutcher, deep delves into the classical world collaborating and experimenting with Richard Reed Parry (Deutsche Grammophon), sharing lodgings with Yuval Zorn (conductor of the Tel Aviv Opera) at the Banff Centre for the Arts and spending the last year arranging his music for orchestral instrumentation and performing with chamber ensembles from coast to coast across Canada. A through line is marked by the contributions from long-standing PBS collaborators Michael Feuerstack (lapsteel) and Pietro Amato (French horn) and the whole package is wrapped up by the careful hands of mix engineers Sandro Perri and Dean Nelson (Beck). The final output is a well-threaded journey set to spur and comfort the listener in turn.

Band:SINNERS BLEED
Album:ABSOLUTION
Label:WAR ANTHEM
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Sinners Bleed was founded by Sebastian Ankert, Eric Krebs (now Eric Wenzel) and Jan Geidner in 1997. The technical and innovative Death Metal of the 90’s and the influence of the late 80’s Thrash Metal sound inspired the band to develop their own style of well crafted Death Metal. The band released two well-received demo recordings and the self-released debut album ‘From Womb to Tomb’ in 2003. Lots of club shows in Germany and Europe and shows at festivals like the Wacken Open Air, the Party.San Open Air, Inferno Festival in Norway or Fuck the Commerce followed. Due to continuing line-up problems and changes in the circumstances of the members’ lives, a second album was postponed. In 2010 the Band decided to take a break and put Sinners Bleed on hold. In 2015 the Band reunited, a new album was written and a solid line-up with new members Henrik Fuchs and Arne Maneke was created. 2019 marks the return of the band with a new album called “Absolution” which will be released during May through War Anthem Records. Sinners Bleed is now: Sebastian Ankert (guit), Eric Wenzel (drums), Jan Geidner (voc), Henrik Fuchs (bass) and Arne Maneke (guit). They have shared the stage with bands like Nile, Cryptopsy,Suffocation, Destruction, Dismember, Vader Malevolent Creation, Sadus, Misery Index and Holy Moses. The music of Sinners Bleed is unique Death Metal - intense, fast and with a huge variety of influences, combined with extremely skilled musicianship.

I'M LOSING MYSELF

Band:AN ISOLATED MIND
Album:I'M LOSING MYSELF
Label:I VOIDHANGER
Format:CDD
Genre:AVANTGARDE DEATH METAL

Based in California, USA, AN ISOLATED MIND is the one-man experimental metal project of Kameron Bogges, who has given birth to a genuinely surprising and genre-defying album. Despite its deep roots into atmospheric post-metal, “I'm Losing Myself” embraces both death and doom metal as seen through the altering lenses of ambient music. The result is a psychedelic journey into a wounded psyche, a downwards spiral into feelings of melancholy, angst and depression. “This album was written and recorded after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and spending a week in a psychiatric hospital,” Bogges reveals. “I spent the following year walking the fine line between psychotic delusion and spiritual epiphany, systematically doubting and reconstructing my psyche to accommodate my newfound reality.” Music-wise, “I'm Losing My Mind” is heavy as it is ethereal. It lives in a constant equilibrium between the sheer power of death and doom metal riffs filtrated through a post-metal sensibility and the delicate sounds of synthesizers, that add a hallucinated feel to the whole. A limpid picture of the artist's mental condition, the debut of AN ISOLATED MIND recreates his painful inner struggles, and in Bogges' own words it's “a journal documenting the terrors and bliss of losing oneself to the mysteries beyond reason.”

 

 

THE DEATH OF HUMANITY

Band:LOUSBERG
Album:THE DEATH OF HUMANITY
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:LP
Genre:AMBIENT/SYNTH

With “The Death Of Humanity,” Lousberg achieves what most composers fail to do so in a lifetime, much less a career. Transcending styles of dark ambient and dungeon synth, Lousberg is responsible for the merger of worlds; both specific and abstract. Intensely contemplative, “The Death Of Humanity” offers itself as an existential soundtrack. Lousberg guides a select few textures through landscapes both subterranean and otherworldly, somehow molding them as one in a 25 minute epic composition. Essentially, “The Death Of Humanity” exists somewhere between heaven and earth; between the universe and darkest corner of a remote location of the listener’s room. Warm, low tones merged with high, cold planes. Through cavernous landscapes and perpetual colonnades. Through timeless loneliness and endless emotional collapse, what Lousberg creates is both intensely human and otherworldly. Lousberg gives soundtrack to previously unchartered parts of the soul. Is this this “The Death Of Humanity” or an “imitation of life?”

 

 

TERMINATION APEX

Band:KAPALA
Album:TERMINATION APEX
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:CD
Genre:DEATH METAL/WARNOISE

Formed in the depths of Kolkata, KAPALA have had one - and only one - objective since its formation: to play the most intense and bestial musick and annihilate the cesspool. Inspired by such legends such as Goatpenis, Revenge, Black Witchery, Blasphemy, Conqueror, and many other violent entities, KAPALA seek to wage total sonic warfare with a strong obsession for the concept of "Survival of the Fittest." And indeed, they accomplished that in a swift 'n' decisive 20 minutes comprising their first public recording, Infest Cesspool, which was released in 2017 by DUNKELHEIT to worldwide shock & awe. Now, with the aptly titled Termination Apex, KAPALA eclipse that feat with an even-more-savage and challenging onslaught that spans a densely uncompromising 26 minutes. Like its equally swift predecessor, Termination Apex displays the power-trio of KAPALA more as a three-man war machine: indeed, their aim is to crush, kill, and destroy all in their path with overwhelming violence and totally OTT intensity. Their arsenal of shredded decibels is even more bountiful here, as each riff and drum hit becomes its own weapon, stockpiled with nuclear power before unleashing wave after wave after unmitigatedly annihilating wave.

 

 

DEATH TRANCE

Band:RXAXPXE
Album:DEATH TRANCE
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:CD
Genre:POWER ELECTRONICS/NOISE/INDUSTRIAL

Some albums are catchy, some are bulky, some immediately stick to you, others touch you. “Death Trance”, the terrific new opus by RxAxPxE is far off these categories. It contains an aggressive world of sound, composed of menacingly clattering frequencies merged with low, massive tones and their ritualistic dimensions into a rustling, shrill, mangling mix of Terror Noise and Power Electronics. A pulsating, rhythm-based, and occult beginning with woven-in murmured and asphyxiated conjurations rises up, then changes to an unnerving, screaming rag of sound, only to be finalized by a rite of nonterminating deepness, that is accompanied by whispering and tortured screams. This album is blackness incarnate.

BLOODLUST

Band:NORSEMEN
Album:BLOODLUST
Label:TIME TO KILL RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:DEATH BLACK METAL

Norsemen was born from the will of Antonio and Beppe to create a death/black metal band, inspired by the Nordic traditions. After some line-up changes they start their live activity in 2017, in this year they released their demo (“Warrior’s Fate”). The live activity intensifies and Norsemen played on some festival’s stage like Metal for Emergency playing with bands like Eluveitie, Necrodeath and ADE. Bloodlust is a minimal transposition of what has been told by ages from the Nordic tradition, with his 10 death metal tracks it offers a brief overview of the most important gods described in their poems. In those songs we try to represent some of the most brutal and violent aspects of those
legends, the listener will be led through battlefields, mythological beasts, demons and gods.

Album:WHEN I WAS A DINOSAUR

Format:LP
Genre:MODERN HARDCORE

70cm3 of Your Chest is the volumina of blood an average adult heart pumps with one beat. It is also a crushing threepiece outfit from Vilnius, Lithuania (now living in Berlin) which plays heartfelt atmospheric music in the veign of Tidal Sleep, Touche Amore and alikes. This is what they say `bout themselves: “Some of us had emotionally hard times while writing 'when I was a dinosaur' - it was written in cooperation with pain, loss, childhood traumas and grief. In some sense it's a tribute to the past and a lesson of letting go. Since it is pretty personal album and we are sure that many others can relate to the stories we tell, we are very happy we had a possibility to collaborate with Fabian from Sunsetter Recording Studio who did everything to make our vision happen. We had the best recording experience and we're thankful that he kept it not only very professional but friendly and understanding as well.”
