A ROMANCE WITH VIOLENCE

Band:WAYFARER
Album:A ROMANCE WITH VIOLENCE
Label:PROFOUND LORE RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

WAYFARER is black metal of the American West. A cavalcade of fury, melancholia, and dust-laden storytelling; the band is informed by the fierce and adventurous spectrums of heavy music, along with the stark Americana of the Denver Sound artists that carved the identity of their home. In A Romance With Violence , their most fully realized effort to date, WAYFARER presents a searing silver-screen requiem for the myth of the West. This new work sees them at their most intense and triumphant, as well as at their most pensive. Bold, rhythmic and riff laden, the band s pointed expedition across the frontiers of black and extreme metal are tinged with the grit and genuine air of artists like Sixteen Horsepower and Jay Munly, and the majestic heights of the Ennio Morricone/Sergio Leone collaborations. Through seven harrowing anthems of the high plains, the album paints a poignant exploration of heroes and killers, the setting sun on a romantic era, and the shadow it has cast on the world we live in today. WAYFARER, from Colorado s Queen City of the Plains , has origins beginning around 2012. Guitarist/vocalist Shane McCarthy formed the band with drummer Isaac Faulk (Blood Incantation), bassist/vocalist James Hansen, and original guitarist Tanner Rezabek. They would release 2014 s Children of the Iron Age and 2016 s Old Souls via Prosthetic Records, after which they would replace the departed Rezabek with longtime collaborator Joe Strong-Truscelli as full-time guitarist. Partnering with Profound Lore Records in 2017, the band released World s Blood in 2018 on the label, ushering in the current chapter and paving the way for this new release. With the release of A Romance With Violence , WAYFARER fully manifests a sound that is uniquely theirs, and is unlike anything before it. Following its release, they will soon be seen bringing their shattered view of the American West to stages across the world. TRACK LISTING: 1. The Curtain Pulls Back, 2. The Crimson Rider (Gallows Frontier, Act I), 3. The Iron Horse (Gallows Frontier, Act II), 4. Fire & Gold, 5. Masquerade Of The Gunslingers, 6. Intermission, 7. Vaudeville

LIVE AT FREAK VALLEY FESTIVAL 2019

Band:ELECTRIC MOON
Album:LIVE AT FREAK VALLEY FESTIVAL 2019
Label:SULATRON
Format:CD
Genre:ACIDROCK/PSYCHEDELIC /KRAUTROCK

Back in 2019, Electric Moon played their 2nd show at Freak Valley Festival and had the honor, to be filmed and recorded by the Rockpalast (german cult music TV-show!) Crew. Here you get the whole concert, wild and raw and full of energy. Plus a bonustrack: the acoustic session taken from the Rockpalast-Interview. Sula with a acoustic guitar, Lulu kind of bass on a acoustic guitar and Pablo drumming on Lulu's acoustic guitar. Fancy. The concert shows the typical Electric Moon sound in long, wild and monotone rides, followed or/and interrupted by emotional pinnacles and melodic parts. This show was like wild state of the moon-sea (yes, on the electric moon there IS a sea, dang!) and tosses the listener back into those heaving crowds at the concert. But also those who weren't there back then will experience it, cause of the stream and TV broadcast by the legendary Rockpalast and this CD release! :-) Responsible for the sound is Falko Schneider of the „Institut für angewandten Krach“ (IfaK), who mixed the live-concert and mixed the multitrack-soundfiles, to get as close as possible to the atmo and the wall of sound of the show itself. Over one hour instrumental intensity at the edge, fervor and devotion, an ode to the live-music. Rare seeded these days, now the live-music comes on a record at least. Lean back, relax and enjoy. Good Flight! CD in gatefold digisleeve, limited to 500 copies!

GROOVE CLUB VOL. 4: SINN SISAMOUTH VO. 1

Band:SINN SISAMOUTH
Album:GROOVE CLUB VOL. 4: SINN SISAMOUTH VO. 1
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP
Genre:CAMBODIAN ROCK/POP

There were no deluxe studios for the musicians who recorded the devastating tracks contained herein. Nothing so grand. Most of these tracks were recorded live, with traditional instruments finding a place alongside any keyboards or guitars that could be found. And yet, it was the experiments of Khmer rock musicians which transformed the nightlife of the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh-and which many years later continue to seduce listeners around the world with their groovy sound. The music is wild and anarchic, rhythmic and undulating, or sweet and lyrical, but always moving and with that deep soulfulness, regardless of actual musical genre or style, that is the hallmark of the best and most important music. The lyrics often tell stories of angst, death, betrayal and sorrow. But there is a very real, deep, inescapable tragedy in these grooves as well. Alas, in 1975 came an entirely different type of transformation: the rise to power in Cambodia of the fanatical, anti-Western, Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot. Within roughly four years, implementing their "concept of Year Zero," Pot and his regime were responsible for the deaths of an estimated two million Cambodians (roughly 21% of the nation's population), many in the notorious "killing fields." Even the most famous and beloved Khmer musicians could not escape. Sinn Sisamouth, the "King of Khmer music"; Ros Sereysothea, the "Golden Voice of the Royal Capital"; and Pan Ron - all featured on this collection of songs written by the majestic Sinn Sisamouth - met their deaths at the hands of the Khmer Rouge. Jon Swain, who was the Sunday Times war correspondent in South Vietnam and Cambodia at the time, said: "Educated people, musicians, people with glasses... a lot were taken to the killing fields... so the great singers disappeared." To us, the richness and deep soulfulness of Cambodian music is akin perhaps to what was excavated from Ethiopia and embraced worldwide over the years thanks to the "Ethiopiques" series - this despite the geographical and cultural distance between the two very different nations. It really is one world, not three. It has long been a dearest wish to be able to present on the Lion Productions label individual artist-specific volumes of some of the most important Cambodian music, with the blessing of the families of the artists. Thanks to the family of Sinn Sisamouth, what seemed a dream is now real! Enjoy this first volume of the many to come!

Format:LP
Genre:Blues

King's first top 100 album! Original live and studio recordings Original artwork, gatefold sleeve.

The album consists of five live tracks (Side A), recorded at New York's Village Gate, and five studio tracks (Side B). It was the first B.B. King album to enter the top 100. Thanks to rock Stars like Eric Clapton and Michael Bloomfield, B.B. King's name had become a common one in rock and guitar circles. Consequently, Szymczyk got together a young group of players taking King's music to the next level with a more soulful and rocking approach. "King's always recorded well as a live act, and it's the concert tracks that shine brightest, although the studio ones (cut with assistance from studio musicians like Al Kooper and Hugh McCracken) aren't bad." (Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide). We are making this great live and studio set available again in its original form, pressed on high-quality 180-gram virgin vinyl, packaged in a gatefold sleeve with the original artwork and linernotes.

 

 

SINGS SHEL SILVERSTEIN…

Band:BOBBY BARE
Album:SINGS SHEL SILVERSTEIN…
Label:BEAR FAMILY RECORDS
Format:8CD PLUS BOOK
Genre:COUNTRY MUSIC/AMERICANA/ SINGER SONGWRITER

Among Silverstein's wry sagas about winners, losers, and lonely all-night cafés, you'll discover charming children's songs and touching, affectionate love ballads. A complicated man, that Silverstein. 8-CD box set (LP-size) with 128-page hardcover book , 137 tracks. Total playing time approx. 8 hours 8 CDs with 137 tracks including 25 previously unreleased recordings. Bobby Bare's interpretations of more than a hundred Shel Silverstein songs. Classic sides from 1972 - 1983 incl. six complete albums. Shel Silverstein wrote hits like Sylvia s Mother and A Boy Named Sue (made famous by Johnny Cash). The live album Great American Saturday Night (unreleased at the time) is expanded here with 3 tracks. 128-page, LP-sized hardcover book with a 2020 Hank Davis interview with Bobby Bare about his friendship with Shel Silverstein, complete lyrics transcriptions, and detailed sessions discography. Includes a new essay by Dave Samuelson about Shel Silverstein and his multi-faceted work. If most people associate the late Shel Silverstein with his children's literature, others remember his cartoons and graphic travelogues for 'Playboy.' By contrast, relatively few recognize this Chicago native as a prolific songwriter, penning such hits as Johnny Cash's A Boy Named Sue, Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show's The Cover Of Rolling Stone, Loretta Lynn's One's On The Way, and The Irish Rovers' The Unicorn. He also wrote Put Another Log On The Fire, Tompall Glaser's memorable showcase on 'Wanted! The Outlaws,' country music's first platinum-selling album. No artist recorded more Silverstein songs than veteran country singer Bobby Bare. His 1972 cover of Silverstein's bittersweet Sylvia's Mother launched a professional relationship that led to an enduring friendship. At Bare's request, Silverstein conceived and composed entire concept albums, starting with 'Lullabys, Legends And Lies,' an exercise in pure imagination from 1974. This two-LP set established Bare as a major album artist and yielded Marie Laveau, the first chart-topping single of the singer's long recording career. A follow-up album, 'Hard Time Hungrys,' captured the downbeat mood of American workers during the mid- '70s recession. A perceptive 'Billboard' reviewer hailed 'Hard Time Hungrys' as "something historians will look back upon." Bare's family participated in the whimsical 'Singin' In The Kitchen,' which included the tender Daddy What If. During the late '70s, Silverstein shifted his creative focus to playwriting and children's books, but he continued crafting clever songs specifically for Bare. When Bare wound down his major-label recording career in the mid-'80s, the singer had recorded more than 100 Silverstein originals, fifteen of them on the notorious 'Great American Saturday Night.' Recorded in 1977, that album was shelved when Bare left RCA for a more lucrative contract with COLUMBIA. Despite their lyrical and historical importance, the Bare/Silverstein collaborations have been sporadically and haphazardly reissued during the compact disc era. In response, BEAR FAMILY RECORDS produced 'Bobby Bare Sings Shel Silverstein, Plus,' the first comprehensive collection of this material. Accompanied by a 128-page hardcover book, its eight CDs include 137 tracks, 25 of them previously unissued. Six albums appear complete, including integral songs by other writers. The long-unheard 'Great American Saturday Night' includes three songs missing from a recent independent label release. The box set contains an LP-sized, lavishly illustrated 128-page hardcover book that contains song lyrics and a discography. In a conversation with Hank Davis, Bare recalls his years working with Silverstein, and Dave Samuelson documents the songwriter's multiple creative pursuits.

Label:BEAR FAMILY RECORDS

Often overlooked and underrated since his tragic death, this new entry in Bear Family's Gonna Shake This Shack series reveals that Walker was far more than a Grand Ole Opry balladeer. Spanning Walker's first fourteen years on record, this set includes Texas honky-tonk, up-tempo shuffles, Tex-Mex novelties, rockabilly and upbeat pop. His early Nashville Sound hits are here, too, including his only country chart-topping 'Charlie's Shoes'.

 

 

THE BALLADS OF JERRY LEE LEWIS

Band:JERRY LEE LEWIS
Album:THE BALLADS OF JERRY LEE LEWIS
Label:BEAR FAMILY RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:ROCK N ROLL/COUNTRY

1-CD (Digipak) with 24-page booklet, 27 tracks. Total playing time approx. 72 minutes. With 'Ballads' Bear Family presents the soulful and sentimental side of the Killer. 27 beautiful Rock n Roll and Country ballads recorded between 1956 and 1963 for Sun Records. Songs by Charlie Rich, Hank Williams and others as well as selected favourites from the Tin Pan Alley catalogue. Elegant digipak with extensive booklet and detailed liner notes by Chicago music expert Bill Dahl. No certified 1950s legend rocked harder than Jerry Lee Lewis. His immortal Sun Records hits stand among the cornerstones of rock 'n' roll, and Bear Family has spotlighted those classics on plenty of seminal LP and CD packages over the years. But the Killer loved country and rock n roll ballads too tears-in-your-beer weepers that he delivered with the same swaggering panache that he brought to his pulverizing rockers. He revived his career in 1968 by re-embracing that side of his persona, but even during his Sun glory years, Lewis prolifically delivered quality ballads as this new collection, spanning 1956-1963, generously underscores. Jerry Lee rolls through gems by Hank Williams (one of his primary heroes), in-house bard Charlie Rich, a couple of Tin Pan Alley chestnuts and a taste of the blues, and anything else that might have struck his free-wheeling fancy during his unbeatable Sun tenure. Track listing: 01 Crazy Arms 02 Invitation To Your Party 03 Born To Lose 04 I Could Never Be Ashamed Of You 05 Tomorrow Night 06 I'm The Guilty One 07 Fools Like Me 08 Will The Circle Be Unbroken 09 Sail Away (with Charlie Rich) 10 Set My Mind At Ease (Stereo) 11 I'll Make It All Up To You 12 It Hurts Me So 13 Love Letters In The Sand 14 How's My Ex Treating You 15 You Win Again 16 I Know What It Means 17 Turn Around 18 The Balad Of Billy Joe 19 It All Depends 20 Love On Broadway 21 Seasons Of My Heart (with Linda Gail Lewis) 22 Someday 23 That Lucky Old Sun 24 Cold Cold Heart 25 Love Made A Fool Of Me 26 Goodnight Irene 27 I Can't Seem To Say Goodbye

The liner notes in the extensive and illustrated booklet are written by hillbilly expert Roland Heinrich. 'Series' are playing an important role in the extensive catalogue of Bear Family Records, which has grown over decades. Our Rockabilly series 'That'll Flat Git It!', or 'Rocks!' with the most important stars of Rock 'n' Roll and Rhythm & Blues are among our successful classics. 'Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight!' is dedicated to the often neglected or even unloved country boogie artists. The assertion that country musicians didn't have a blast before Elvis is simply wrong! Already in the '40s musicians made the walls of country dance halls shake! That's Country Boogie! Our latest release in this series focuses on recordings from the US Decca label. The latest installment in Bear Family's groundbreaking 'Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight!' series features the hillbilly and boogie roots of Rockabilly and Rock 'n' Roll, this time with jewels from Decca and Coral labels. Included are big names like Jimmie Davis (Cherokee Boogie), but also artists who remained almost unknown like Jim Atkins (I'm A Ding Dong Daddy From Dumas) and Rusty Keefer with his original version of I'm Here To Get My Baby Out Of Jail. With their own version, The Everly Brothers made it to position #76 in the Billboard charts in 1962! Other hillbilly rockers on this compilation include Tabby West, Hard Rock Gunter, Wayne Raney, Tommy Sosebee, Chuck Murphy, Terry Fell, Kenny Roberts and Arlie Duff.

THE DEPTHS OF FINALITY

Band:GOD BODY DISCONNECT
Album:THE DEPTHS OF FINALITY
Label:Cryo Chamber
Format:CDD
Genre:DARK AMBIENT/AMBIENT

God Body Disconnect returns with a deeply personal album that takes us on a journey through the emotional landscapes of grief and mortality. "God Body Disconnect has always served as my outlet for personal introspection. It’s a place where I can uncover my deepest emotions and face the inner demons I’ve been too afraid to confront in my life. I’ve often used my own recorded voice in the music to help guide both myself and listeners through these difficult inner workings. From the weary and cryptic words on Dredge Portals and Sleepers Fate, to the grief-stricken monologue on The Mist Between Mirrors, I’ve come to rely on their importance to the music. But last year when I became sick again, and had death sitting on my shoulders, something changed in me. I found that I couldn’t comfortably channel these feelings from behind a microphone. Maybe it was all a bitter reminder of the hospitals, or the pain of watching my body fail. But I had to face the real possibility of my end, and then somehow find a way to make peace with that. I’ve always strived to be honest with my music, and this album is my attempt to tell that truth. I no longer need to hide from pain. I know death is real, and while I still may fear the unknown, I’ve planted the seed of peace because of it. - Bruce"

Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:AMBIENT

On his now 10th full length album, Johan Levin offers us a slow, soaring meditation on mortality. The complete certainty of death, and how we cope with that knowledge is what constitues the essence of this new opus. “Departed” retains the sacral expression of its predecessor “Vita Arkivet”, but not within the oppressive confinement of old stone vaults, but high across a raging seas, rocky shores and darkened skies. Music for gazing at the endless ocean of infinity, trying to catch a glimpse of meaning through the tiny rips in the fabric of existence; its magic and loss. The CD and Digital versions contain 3 bonus tracks, reworks of classic pieces “Deadbeat” and “Worlds Apart” and “I Am Without Rule (Sum Sine Regno)”, recorded December 2018, and while sound wise it harks back to the “Vita Arkivet” album, thematically it is more akin to “Departed”, lending it's title from the medieval mortality motif of “The Wheel of Fortune” which became very popular after the great plague. CD Edition of 600 copies in 4 panels Digipak. 9 Tracks.

Long awaited new material from Lamia Vox. Titled “Alles ist Ufer. Ewig ruft das Meer” (Everything is shore. The sea calls forever) after the Gesänge poem by Gottfried Benn, the album is’nt presented merely as a musical piece but bears a deep spiritual message and a counterblast to the rational, materialistic and post-theist nihilism of current age.

Dionysian liberating lawlessness to oppose sterile rationalism and creativity, divine madness, metanoia as a form of ultimate salvation. Poetry flows, it is a sacred art and process and the laboratory of the Magnum Opus, a divine gift of deliberate madness. CD editing of 600 copies in 6 panel digisleeve with matt lamination. 8 Tracks.

HELJARRUNAR

Band:UNDIRHEIMAR
Album:HELJARRUNAR
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:RITUAL/AMBIENT

Undirheimar conjures from the formless void musical talismans for the listener to experience through limited human senses, and, for those more attuned to Thursian forces, beyond them. Each spell is a poisonous offering whose intrinsic purpose is to invade the cosmic realm and spread Thursastafir (Thursian primordial knowledge). These workings manifest what is alien to the demiurge’s creation, and thus, as the eleven venomous rivers from Hvergelmir, infect the roots of the cosmic pillar. The mediums used to disseminate the eitr from the outer-worlds are somber and arcane sounds and vibrations, Thursian gnosis through sonic sorcery. Within the sorcerous craft utilised to convey Thursastafir, the use of Mongolian, Tibetan, and Siberian style throat chanting is strongly apparent. Utilising the raw power of vibration and the primal technique of repetitive mantras, Undirheimar channels the magical potency of primordial sound from both written texts as well as wordless galdr. The aim is not to recreate a specific cultural technique, but rather to derive inspiration from existing practices, and through personal shamanic working, bring forth Undirheimar’s own stream of devotional and magical praxis. Edition of 300 copies in 6 panel Digisleeve. 6 tracks.

After the distinctive and critically acclaimed mythical album trilogy "Kali Yuga", "Moloch" & "As Gods Fall" (Cyclic Law) Vortex returns with an epic new album. “Helioz” presents a cycle of tracks dealing with solar mythology throughout history, cultures and religions. The sun is essential to human life and culture, worshipped as an unconquered force, male or female, it is part of numerous mythologies; from the cyclical path of the sun barge in Egypt to the Roman Mithras cult and the Japanese goddess Amaterasu. Like C. G. Jung’s concept of the "Nachtmeerfahrt" the new Vortex album takes an intense trip on the night sea, following the sun on its mythical journey through various imaginations. "Helioz" is the most song-based album by Vortex to date, featuring various guest musicians. Patrick Kleinbauer of Notre Dame de l’Oublie and Rome, Lamia Vox, Nam Khar, Oliver Freund of Mars, Stephan Ortlepp of Musica Non Grata and Kai Naumann of The Trail provided guest vocals and instrumental contributions to add to the multi-layered, complex sound compositions which became a trademark of Vortex. Cinematic soundscape converge with dark drones, archaic sounds and instruments like goat horns, tagl harpa, jaw harp, various vocals and throat singing as well as atmospheric electric guitar passages. The album’s artwork was again created by the visionary French talent [nihil], reflecting upon the album’s themes. Lyrics and liner notes are included in the extensive booklet. Edition of 500 copies in 6 panels Digisleeve with 16 pages Booklet, matt lamination. 9 tracks. Running Time 57:47

BLACK MIRROR REFLECTION

Band:SVABHAVAT
Album:BLACK MIRROR REFLECTION
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

SVABHAVAT are a brand-new entity hailing from the American Pacific Northwest. A duo, they describe their music as "Ritualistic Necromancy Black Metal," and indeed is that demi-tag apt: across the band's Black Mirror Reflection debut, one will find the refreshingly old stench of archetypal Darkthrone, Mayhem, and especially Kartharsis. No elegiac odes to the Cascadians or sun-drenched bliss masquerading as "black metal" here; SVABHAVAT offer nothing but cold 'n' cruel intensity, violently at odds with their region's reigning paradigm. Yet, for a sound so stridently traditional, SVABHAVAT offer unique twists of the knife across Black Mirror Reflection, its self-imposed boundaries paradoxically offering freedom. Undoubtedly, those noble influences form their foundation - as they do for countless black metal bands, past and present - but there's a devilish delirium the duo delve into across their debut album which suggests aesthetic aims beyond the tried & true (or "tired & tr00"). Almost deceptively so, Black Mirror Reflection in fact reflects a hovering, haunting melodicism that poignantly penetrates one's subsconcious but never without smacking of the saccharine; simply put, SVABHAVAT's ceaseless(ly sinister) intensity bleeds through at any speed, which is all the more suprising given their Spartan composition as a two-piece. And speaking of compositions, the six comprising this 37-minute Black Mirror Reflection are mini-epics in their own right, offering expectionally linear narratives exceedingly daubed in the grim and ghoulish, the total package taut and swiftly satisfying. Intoxication through damnation, salvation through incineration...SVABHAVAT offer a dread path ahead. Step forward and stare into their Black Mirror Reflection. TRACKLIST 1.

GELDERSE POORT

Band:ISKANDR
Album:GELDERSE POORT
Label:Eisenwald
Format:LP + CD
Genre:HEATHEN BLACK METAL

ISKANDR continues to roam, wider and wistfully, with the epic new EP Gelderse Poort. Comprising two tracks for a total of 24 minutes, Gelderse Poort is a thematically unified release, offering yet more depth to the already-deep ISKANDR aesthetic. The EP s title track was recorded during the Euprosopon sessions and deal with O s home region and both the spiritual connection and distance to one's place of origin. The Gelderse Poort is a literal name for the region where the Rhine enters the Netherlands from Germany, since it is on this border that the river cuts a path through two elevated areas and, as such, resembles a sort of "gate" into the Netherlands. As O explains, I take this 'gate' as a more symbolic entity, a metaphorical entryway into or exit from one's home that moment whenever you feel like 'Ah, I'm back again!' or the other way around, 'Damn, I feel very far removed from home right now.' Fittingly, the title track spans a wealth of sonic terrain, from spacious n pastoral to the searingly violent, but all with ISKANDR s characteristically deft and dynamic touch. Het Graf, the second track, features a spoken rendition of a part of the poem "het Graf" (English: The Grave ) by Dutch writer Rhijnvis Feith, spoken by O s father. Even moodier than Gelderse Poort s title track, dipping into eerily quiet passages brimming with beauty and tension alike, the song fittingly deals with death, the finitude of life, and youth vs. old age. It was very significant to have my dad on the record since all ISKANDR material is pretty personal in nature, O enthuses, and having him recite a poem dealing with these existential themes is a very meaningful addition to my discography, I feel. Meaningful, and essential: ISKANDR s discography may be spare still, but the band s vision continues to be breathtaking. Set sail for splendor and wonder with Gelderse Poort!

 

 

BLACK MIRROR REFLECTION

Band:SVABHAVAT
Album:BLACK MIRROR REFLECTION
Label:Eisenwald
Format:LP
Genre:Black Metal

SVABHAVAT are a brand-new entity hailing from the American Pacific Northwest. A duo, they describe their music as "Ritualistic Necromancy Black Metal," and indeed is that demi-tag apt: across the band's Black Mirror Reflection debut, one will find the refreshingly old stench of archetypal Darkthrone, Mayhem, and especially Kartharsis. No elegiac odes to the Cascadians or sun-drenched bliss masquerading as "black metal" here; SVABHAVAT offer nothing but cold 'n' cruel intensity, violently at odds with their region's reigning paradigm. Yet, for a sound so stridently traditional, SVABHAVAT offer unique twists of the knife across Black Mirror Reflection, its self-imposed boundaries paradoxically offering freedom. Undoubtedly, those noble influences form their foundation - as they do for countless black metal bands, past and present - but there's a devilish delirium the duo delve into across their debut album which suggests aesthetic aims beyond the tried & true (or "tired & tr00"). Almost deceptively so, Black Mirror Reflection in fact reflects a hovering, haunting melodicism that poignantly penetrates one's subsconcious but never without smacking of the saccharine; simply put, SVABHAVAT's ceaseless(ly sinister) intensity bleeds through at any speed, which is all the more suprising given their Spartan composition as a two-piece.

DULCE BELLUM INEXPERTIS

Band:BLAZON RITE
Album:DULCE BELLUM INEXPERTIS
Label:GATES OF HELL
Format:MLP
Genre:HEAVY METAL

Primal and epic metal from the dungeons of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! Dungeons and Dragons-influenced metal that deals a deadly dose of NWOBHM and power metal complete with a resounding four-song concept. Upon the 2019 formation of Blazon Rite, guitarist and primary songwriter James Kirn had quite the simple, but universal edict: He wanted “heads to bang.” While such an approach has defined metal for the past 40 years, Kirn wanted to put his twist on the genre by combining his love of obscure ’70s hard rock and power metal while exploring the vast fantasy world of Dungeons and Dragons. In the span of a few months, Blazon Rite had assembled and recorded the four songs that would comprise their debut four-song EP, Dulce Bellum Inexpertis, which is being released worldwide via Gates of Hell Records. Recorded and mastered by Rich Scott at 8th House Recordings in 2019, Dulce Bellum Inexpertis finds Blazon Rite (who are rounded out by bassist-turnedvocalist Johnny Halladay, drummer Ryan Haley and bassist, lead guitarist and keyboardist, Pierson Roe) expertly crafting punchy, anthemic numbers that jousts between vintage, NWOBHM-inspired metal and dramatic European acts such as Blind Guardian and Helloween.

Vintage, adventurous proto-metal that taps into the deep well of ’70s rock! Formerly known as Witch Hazel, SpellBook marries Black Sabbath, Pentagram and progressive rock for seven songs of entrancing classic metal! During the writing process for what would eventually become Magick & Mischief, the members of York, Pennsylvania vintage proto-metal purveyors Witch Hazel realized there was no better time than the present to change their name. The idea had long rested on their mind, but the risks in changing a band’s name are numerous, if not painfully obvious. After all, since their 2007 formation, Witch Hazel independently released three studio albums, Forsaken Remedies (2012), Nocturnity (2015) and Otherwordly (2018), and had already generated buzz in the doom metal underground. But, with the confidence that the material they created for Magick & Mischief was the strongest of their career, Witch Hazel reached back into their past for the song “The Spellbook” from Forsaken Remedies and rebranded themselves SpellBook. Soon, a deal with Cruz Del Sur Music was signed, and the band started a new chapter that begins with the release of Magick & Mischief.

MYRTLE WREATH - MYRTENKRANZ

Band:GRENDELS SYSTER
Album:MYRTLE WREATH - MYRTENKRANZ
Label:CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
Format:LP
Genre:EPIC FOLK METAL

A seamless blend of classic metal and pure folk from this emerging German power trio! Re-release of German trio Grendel’s Sÿster’s Myrtle Wreath / Myrtenkranz EP — a collection of German and English-sung folk metal that’s eclectic and epic! “Follow the atmosphere.” It is a simple guideline for Grendel’s Sÿster guitarist and primary songwriter Tobi when composing. He often finds himself pulling all-nighters, aided and abetted by black tea and a daylight lamp to ensure the mood is just right. All he needs is a tiny fragment of a melody with a numinous quality and eventually, a new Grendel’s Sÿster song is born. Music as unique as Grendel’s Sÿster requires a special touch — they marry metal, folk and acid rock in such a manner that it would appear the band has been together for decades, when, in reality, they came together in 2015 after a series of impromptu jam sessions tucked away in the Vosges Mountains region in France.

ICH-WIR

Band:POGENDROBLEM
Album:ICH-WIR
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:Punk

From the province to the moped and then into the big city - Pogendroblem make their way from Bergisch Gladbach, Germany into the interior of the metropolitan region. Free and likewise lost between pubs and competence marathons in public transport and private political circumstances; the bad life is to be savoured in to the max. Their music is said to be a pinch of 80’s D-Punk, a little Hamburger Schule with noise-garage and some added pop cuteness. The private is political, but the private can also be boring. "Ich - Wir" (the compilation of the concept EP "Ich - Wir" and a retrospective of the debut EP "raus") deals with the relationship between individuality and collectivity in the current late capitalism. The big and small questions of the social, of the ways of relating to each other are not only explored by the titles "Ich", "Wir", "Wg-gesucht" and "Foucault im Großraumbüro", but also by the tour documentary "pogendroblem in search of utopia", which uses numerous interviews, the knowledge, ideas and utopias of other musicians* in the scene. Be part of it: Akne Kid Joe, Deutsche Laichen, Mülheim Asozial, HC Baxxter, Finisterre and many others.

 

 

WESTEND

Band:TAUSEND AUGEN
Album:WESTEND
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:KRAUTROCK/PROTO-POSTPUNK

A symbiotic relationship between old and new – a retro sound sent into the future, that’s how Tausend Augen (English: “thousand eyes”) sound. This sound aesthetic is a result of a get together of 50 year old microphones, compressors, tape recorders and the ability to fuse that with modern recording techniques. „Westend“, the bands debut sounds familiar as well as alien – like a transfer between musical generations. Their roots lie in Germany’s experimental and innovative rock music, which frees the spirit of barrierless experimentation and builds the main ground. They combine influences of electronic music, psychedelic rock, motorik, post punk and noise with German lyrics. Following the paths CAN, NEU! or Kraftwerk built „Westend“ leads to new interpretations and sounds international and a bit zeitgeisty. 70s meet 80s, pioneer german NDW sounds like Abwärts or DAF find their places as well as stoic rhythmics like NEU! Or The Oh Sees.

UMBRA

Band:FORLORN WORLD
Album:UMBRA
Label:HOSTILE MEDIA
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Forlorn World was formed in July 2019 by frontman and founding member of Bloodshot Dawn, Josh McMorran, with the intention of weaving an epic narrative plot together. With music using soaring guitar melody whilst mixing clean and harsh vocals Josh set out to create something fresh and unique within his spectrum of creativity. This new-found escape gave Josh the ultimate platform to explore new realms within his musical repertoire, daring to traverse paths previously untouched, which a main musical outlet such as Bloodshot Dawn would naturally avoid due to a certain weight of expectation. Forlorn World is a narrative backdrop, the story of a man forced to take a dark path, finding revenge and redemption. The epilogue of a great saga in a fictional universe, based on the world we live in and trials we all face together. The album entitled, ‘Umbra’ (meaning “shadow” in Latin) is a solo project comprised of 7 new melodic death metal songs written, recorded and mixed by the man himself, Josh McMorran with mastering and additional mixing coming from acclaimed record producer Jacob Hansen of Hansen Studios (Aborted, Extol, Amaranthe). The album includes guest solos and vocals from Francesco Paoli (Fleshgod Apocalypse), Morgan Reid, Yo Oniytan and many more, with bass duties covered by Giacomo Gastaldi (Bloodshot Dawn, Darkend).

 

 

GLORIFICATION SERMONS

Band:KOSMOVOROUS
Album:GLORIFICATION SERMONS
Label:I VOIDHANGER
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

Founded in 2013 by S. (bass) and Antinomos (guitars), with Valkenstijn (MOSAIC, NACHTMYSTIUM, SUN OF THE SLEEPLESS) joining on lead vocals two years later, KOSMOVOROUS is a mysterious black metal entity born to exalt the Ophidian ways of the pneuma. The band's debut EP, “Glorification Sermons” is a relentless and brutal assault on the senses. The work is comprised by two long and complex compositions, two majestic psalms that flay our skins with merciless lashes of utter black metal violence, before soothing our wounds with painful melodies poised between melancholy and rage. The chemistry between Antinomos and S. is total, with guitars and bass intertwined into some of the most epic and darkest black metal arrangements of the last few years. KOSMOVOROUS' devastating wall of sound takes the breath away; and yet, the spiritually elevating power of “Glorification Sermons” is undeniable, with Valkenstijn's heartfelt, tortured vocals adding depth and drama to a picture already orientated towards great sceneries of sufferance and retribution. A debut that will surely be talked about.

 

 

RESONANT ECHOES FROM COSMOS OF OLD

Band:PROMETHEUS
Album:RESONANT ECHOES FROM COSMOS OF OLD
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

After a couple of demos and a promising debut (“Consumed in Flames”, 2017), Greece's PROMETHEUS are back with their sophomore full-length album, “Resonant Echoes From Cosmos Of Old”, which expands and perfects the material of “Astrophobos”, an early 2020 digital EP. Carrying the heritage of both Hellenic and Scandinavian black metal (from VARATHRON and ROTTING CHRIST to EMPEROR and SETHERIAL), PROMETHEUS do not disdain to combine it with the esoteric death metal of MORBID ANGEL and early ABSU, among the others. “Resonant Echoes From Cosmos Of Old” is channeled in the esoteric and mystical currents of black metal, with much more emphasis on darkness than in past works thanks to a pervasive – yet never overindulgent – symphonic feel that makes PROMETHEUS' music even more majestic and wrapping.

 

 

MUTATIS MUTANDIS

Band:KEVEL
Album:MUTATIS MUTANDIS
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

Located in Athens, Greece, KEVEL create unconventional yet coherent sonic boulders, extending away from the specific rules and stylistic barriers of the many metal sub-genres. If the 2014 self-released debut of “Hz of the Unheard” was mainly an instrumental album of progressive sludge, “Mutatis Mutandis” explores other musical paths, combining black metal, post-metal, progressive elements and spacey soundscapes, for the first time also adding vocals and synths to the band's formula. KEVEL's music embraces the listeners with deep, enveloping atmospheres; then it slowly crushes them by inducing a dark and deadly trance thanks to stratified sounds and hypnotic, cold melodies. All the songs are geometrically built on the perfect interlocking of ultra-heavy riffs, hammering rhythms and oppressing vocals that create majestic mantras of desolation, alienation and pain. The pain of living in a vast, indifferent and inhospitable universe, without a purpose or a reason to be.

 

 

THEOSULPHUROS

Band:PRECARIA AND OROS KAU
Album:THEOSULPHUROS
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:ESOTERIC BLACK METAL

Two years after the release of “Metamorphosphoros”, PRECARIA returns with “Theosulphuros”, the second and final part of a diptych of split albums dedicated to the concept of “Theion”, the divine fire which transforms those who seek true light through darkness. Accompanying the Mexican black metal band in its spiritual voyage there's ÔROS KAÙ, a mysterious one-man project from Belgium which has recently signed with I, Voidhanger Records after a noteworthy 2020 debut. The world “Theion” translates from ancient Greek as both "sulphur" and "divine fire", and finds a precise depiction in Elijah Tamu's sumptuous cover painting (a continuation of the “Metamorphosphoros” original art), developed from an idea of PRECARIA's Hermit and featuring a female figure suspended upside down. “The figure represents the human soul in the process of death, transitioning into a greater realm of existence,” explains Tamu, a devout Christian who explores the boundaries between light and darkness not only through his paintings, but also with his own black metal band, PANEGYRIST. “The fiery wings indicate the fiery principle whose source is God,” the artist continues, “a force that destroys illusions and false aspects of the self, while refining and revitalizing the deeper essence of ourselves.”

The Thrash Metal quintet from Berlin release their premier demo and promo this year and as such show excellency right from the first riff, this is 80′s style Thrash Metal in the vein of Anthrax and Metallica mostly, with the classic and easily detectable riffs and signature drumming as the backdrop, Space Chaser are nowhere near the Teutonic Thrash Metal style that has plagued the German metal scene for years. As long as they keep this up, they could make a name for themselves in the European metal scenes, you won’t need a time travel machine to see 80′s Thrash Metal, let the Space Chaser get it for you.” Rhys Stevenson, GlobalMetalApocalypse

Besil Wrathbone reinterpreted the original artwork and with one bonus song (Thrashhold in the demo version and remixed as well) this ep will blow your mind.

Selfmadegod Records is proud to announce the signing of Swedish band Grid. After several vinyl and cassette releases the trio from Umea finished recording its debut full length. “Livsleda” consists of 9 blistering grindcore songs with some echoes of melodic crust/d-beat. It will appeal to fans of Nasum, Rotten Sound, Sayyadina, Afgrund, Wake, Tragedy, Martyrdod and the likes. Grid comes from the north of Sweden founded in 2014 by Frongo, Andreas and Wilke. In the beginning, the goal was to annoy Umeahardcore- elite but it didn't take long until the band found a more refined sound. In 2015 they got signed by Discouraged Records, released the first EP (Umea Grindcore) and played a number of show's including a performance at OEF 2016, later that year Wilke left the band. When Grid turned into a duo the sound and the lyric's evolved to a more "melodic" kind of grindcore with misanthropical lyrics, faster D-Beats and harder blast beat's and a new EP called Human Collapse Syndrome. Grid also did a tour in southeast asia in 2017. In 2018 after a short nordic tour Grid turned into a 3-piece again when Kaka decided to join the band. Now they are here with a bunch of new song's on a new album called “Livsleda”.

 

 

SATANIC UNION FROM THE SOUTH

Band:PUTRID/GRAVE DESECRATION
Album:SATANIC UNION FROM THE SOUTH
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:LP
Genre:DEATH METAL/BLACK METAL

There are many ways by which a Split album may be crafted and created. Despite of all possible reasons and causes, in order to create a successful split album an awakened state and sense of coherency between the involved bands should be established. But how does this coherency and common ground work within the parameters of this particular split? First of all, the Blackened death metal band Putrid, became in only mere 10 years of existence, one of the most prolific and constant bands in the local Peruvian scene. With a number of demos, splits and 2 full length albums they have been growing and maturing from playing some sort of Blackened Death/thrash metal into their current incarnation which is a very agile, consistent and forceful take of death metal influenced by the stamina of Angelcorpse, Abhorrence and the foul aggression of the veterans Slayer. Here, on this split album, they have continued with their onslaught already established by their previous album “Antichrist Above”. The outburst of violence presented as their side of this split could be taken as an appendix of that album.

 

 

MALEFICAE ARTES

Band:ENTARTUNG
Album:MALEFICAE ARTES
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:LP
Genre:Black Metal

After three long years, Entartung finally returns from the ominous shadows to which they silently retreated after the release of their prior opus, “Baptised into the Faith of Lust”. It is fitting that, in a new age of plague and pestilence, their newest album “Maleficae Artes” (Lat. “Dark Arts”) is unleashed upon the world. The elaborate compositions on “Maleficae Artes” are deeply and firmly rooted in the early 90's atmosphere and remain true to the original spirit of black metal. Brooding, sinister, violent and menacing themes presented by the trademark icy riffing of Lykormas and the militaristic and deadly precise battery assault of Haistulf manifest themselves in a dynamic interaction with acoustic and martial touches of melancholy and gloom. The lyrical subject matters explored on “Maleficae Artes” are devoted to death, the Faustian spirit, ancient rituals and traditions and the darker chapters of human history; enhancing the experience in a synergetic fashion.

It will have taken time to come into the world, but "Cannibalism For Dummies", in addition to having a cover signed Bastien Jez (ex -guitarist of the group), sumptuous, shows that HEBOÏPHRENIE 2020 is in great shape and that the group is signing a very good album here.
