ONE LESS HEARTLESS TO FEAR

Band:SHIPPING NEWS
Album:ONE LESS HEARTLESS TO FEAR
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

Shipping News “One Less Heartless To Fear” is the band’s first new full length album since “Flies The Fields” (2005) and a helluva lot has happened over the last five years. Two weddings, fatherhood, serious illness, a presidential election, multiple wars, city moves... these things have inspired the band to make their most rowdy, aggressive and adolescent album to date. Shipping News has jettisoned the long songs (and glacial tempos) of the past and is concentrating on energetic blasts of noisy rock (with a little gallows humor thrown in). While slipping into a slightly more sympathetic mood once or twice, the new songs are stripped down and pretty much nasty. Working for the first time with the kind folks at AfricanTape and Ruminance, this album marks the 14th year of the band’s existence. “One Less Heartless To Fear” features seven brand new songs and two “oldies” recorded live on a digital multitrack system at the all-ages venue Skull Alley (Louisville) and The O-Nest (Tokyo).

Not only is this a must for fans of any the band member's former outfits: Rodan, June Of 44, Slint and Rachel's, but also it's a must hear for anyone into Jesus LIzard,Shellac,Sonic Youth,Fugazi and Mission Of Burma. Superb!

MARROW OF THE SPIRIT - LIMITED EDITION

Band:
Album:MARROW OF THE SPIRIT - LIMITED EDITION
Label:VIVA HATE
Format:LIMITED BLACK BOX CD
Genre:Black Metal

Agalloch is one of the most established US American Black Metal,Pagan bands - This version of the new album is limited to 2000 copies and WILL sell out very quickly. The limited version contains an entire black jewel case box with burned emblem on the jewel case and a blackened CD. The limited version is handnumbered. Order it now or miss out!

For fourteen years the Pacific Northwest group Agalloch has carved out a multifarious sound consisting of black metal, folk, progressive rock, and ambient soundscapes that has marked them as a pioneer in the contemporary dark music scene. Their dynamic approach to metal began with the demo From Which of this Oak released in 1997. This demo exhibited a deep connection with the early recordings of bands like Ulver, In the Woods, and Katatonia. The band released one more demo before securing a three-album deal with The End Records resulting in the releases Pale Folklore (1999), The Mantle (2002), and Ashes Against the Grain (2006). In between each of these full-lengths the band pushed on the flexible boundaries they had developed around themselves through a series of limited releases that found the band experimenting with post-rock/experimental rock (The Grey EP, 2004), and neo-folk/psychedelic folk (The White EP, 2008). Beginning in early 2003 the band began performing live. Their stripped down and explosive live shows stretched from the west coast to the east coast of the US all the way through central Europe. Recently the band performed two sold out shows in Romania and was the first metal band to perform at the historical Reduta Cultural Center in Brasov. In late 2008 the band’s live performance was captured on DVD in Belgium and released under the title The Silence of Forgotten Landscapes (Shiver Records). In their eight year history of playing live Agalloch has had the pleasure of performing with such diverse groups as The Gathering, Dornenreich, Alcest, Subarachnoid Space, OvO, Satyricon, Saturnus, and many others. Such varied lineups are a testimony to the ease with which Agalloch can cross musical genres and styles. Now, after a long four year wait, Agalloch returns with their fourth full-length album Marrow of the Spirit to be released in Europe on November 20th, 2010 through Viva Hate Records. This new record encompasses the vast musical landscape Agalloch has traversed for fourteen years and sees them continuing to stretch and enrich their sound

Within a few weeks of hearing her sing for the first time I offered to be her manager and Bumstead Productions became her management and recording company. This arrangement marked the beginning of a 15-year rollercoaster of international tours, multi-platinum album sales, accolades, awards and crisis management.

THE ANIMAL SPIRITS

Band:SLOUGH FEG
Album:THE ANIMAL SPIRITS
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The name of SLOUGH FEG should sound familiar to any average metal-head who has had an interest for this style of music for at least the last ten years; at the same time it would not be a surprise neither to discover that most of the die-hard fans of the band fall in the category of the “true metal” fans… Although Mike Scalzi and his band mates have often broke the boundaries between the rock/metal and hard rock fields, the story of SLOUGH FEG has always been that of a band moving on the borders of notoriety and unawareness. 2009 has marked a point for the band, with the release of their full length “Ape Uprising”, the US tour with THE SWORD and their participation to the soundtrack of EA’s videogame “Brutal Legend”; now celebrating their 20-year long career, SLOUGH FEG delivers their 8th full length album, “The Animal Spirits” “The Animal Spirits” in concept, in visuals and in music, signs a return to the SLOUGH FEG origins with a more direct approach, less frills and more action! As for the significance of the album title “The Animal Spirits”, Scalzi delves further: “The title sounds like it could mean plenty of things, but really refers to an Aristotelian theory of perception that was somehow taken seriously until the mid to late 1700's (?!) Why this was I don't know, but it involves these bizarre fluid called ‘animal spirits’ travelling through a person's veins carrying information of what they have perceived, storing it in the heart, and then releasing it again when that thing is remembered. It really a primitive precursor to the idea of neurons firing in a chain, containing ideas. So that's what people will find if they do a little research about the title.”. SLOUGH FEG have been confirmed for the HEADBANGERS OPEN AIR (Germany) in July 2011. The show will be part of a small European tour, which will see them play in UK, Portugal and Greece as well.

 

 

LIVE AT ROADBURN 2009 LP.

Band:WINO
Album:LIVE AT ROADBURN 2009 LP.
Label:ROADBURN
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

After the demise of his last group: The Hidden Hand, Wino did not rest. With new found energy he completed the writing of many new songs and decided to enlist the help of some friends to help realize his new musical vision. The idea was not to start a new power trio with a new name as before. This time it was about finding players who would help realize his songs the way he wanted them. This more “Wino”- focused direction was fleshed out with the help of 2 amazing musicians: Jean Paul Gaster (Clutch, The Bakerton Group) on drums and Jon Blank (Rezin) on bass. “Punctuated Equilibrium” was the result of that collaboration.

Wino is one of the early pioneers of Doom metal and stoner. During the last 25 years his bands such as Hidden hand, Saint Vitus, Spirit caravan have left their undeniable mark on the genre. This release captures the great Afterburner live show from Roadburn 2009 on a limited vinyl LP. Move fast!

 

 

L`ARIVEE DE LAS TERNE MORT TRIOMPHANTE

Band:GNAW THEIR TONGUES
Album:L`ARIVEE DE LAS TERNE MORT TRIOMPHANTE
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Black Metal

Spawned from the ruins of hatred and frustration in 2005, GTT was created to expose a darker reality to the world through sonic nightmares. The band's sound encompasses dark ambient, black metal, doom, drone and orchestral avant-garde music, with all of these elements smeared over and under each other like the work of an imprisoned lunatic smearing his faeces all over the walls in a grotesque manifestation of filthy art. Until now 4 full-lengths, countless splits, EP's, vinyl only releases, cassettes, free downloads have been vomited forth to much critical acclaim. Never steering away from its original 'no boundaries' ethos, 2010 sees its fifth album being dragged into the sunlight. A terrifying and depressing horror filled abomination. Having spend time in the sewers with murderers, rapist, war atrocities and the filth of mankind, this time GTT visits even deeper wells of the ultimate saviour: DEATH. A bleak and depressing concept album, harsh, bombastic and very sinister: L'arrivée de la terne mort triomphante.

SLIGHT SPELL

Band:THE RAVENNA COLT
Album:SLIGHT SPELL
Label:KARATE BODY
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

“Slight Spell” is the debut solo album from The Ravenna Colt, the solo project of John Quaid. Quaid is a founding member of My Morning Jacket who performed on the band’s first three albums, “The Tennessee Fire,” “At Dawn” and their ATO Records’ debut “It Still Moves,” before leaving amicably in 2004. He took some time off as a carpenter in California, before penning these troubadour anthems. Last year, Quaid and his cousin, MMJ frontman Yim Yames, formed Removador Recordings & Solutions, which released the CD and digital versions of “Slight Spell.” RIYL: Ryan Adams, The Flying Burrito Brothers, early My Morning Jacket. Recorded at The Funeral Home in Louisville, Ky., it features guest appearances by current MMJ guitarist Carl Broemel, and former MMJ keyboardist Danny Cash.

"Their debut album Slight Spell is hazy, southern-flavored indie rock that draws upon a multitude of influences ranging from the Flying Burrito Brothers’ dark, expansive twang to the folk sounds of Townes Van Zandt and Bob Dylan, to the psych side of Gram Parsons" — The Record Dept.

Each LP comes with a download card for a free copy of the album. Limited first 500 copies are hand-numbered.

 

 

VIDEO MUSICS 2

Band:ALEXIS GIDEON
Album:VIDEO MUSICS 2
Label:African Tape
Format:2LP/DVD
Genre:Rap/Hip Hop

Building on his genre-busting animated/stop motion video opera “Video Musics” (2009 Sickroom(US) / Africantape(EU)), Alexis Gideon, after two years of dogged research and collaboration, is set to premiere that work’s follow-up, “Video Musics II: Sun Wu-Kong” (Disjecta in Portland, September 3). A one-hour multimedia video opera based on the 16th-century Chinese novel “The Journey to the West,” “Video Musics II” joins the brightest lights of contemporary animation (Becca Taylor (Punk Planet, Arthur); Cynthia Star (Coraline, Moral Orel, Robot Chicken); Ezra Claytan Daniels (Darkhorse Comics, Top Shelf Comics)) with the most promising talents of contemporary music (Rachel Blumberg (M Ward, Arch Cape); Cory Gray (Norfolk & Western, Carcrashlander); Shelley Short (Hush)) to create an aural and visual universe that gleefully transcends both media. Is it film or music, high art or pop? Gideon’s work would fit snugly at either the Whitney Biennial or SXSW, which is to say it cannot be contained, really, by either venue. Marked throughout by the ambition, commitment to detail, and refusal to settle that have earned Gideon a cult following on both sides of the pond. Alexis Gideon has toured nationally with Dan Deacon and Shelley Short as well as played with Barr, Marnie Stern, Panther, Parts and Labor, Zs, People, Matt and Kim, and many, many others.

 

 

ANCESTRAL CULT OF DIVINITY LP

Band:WARCHETYPE
Album:ANCESTRAL CULT OF DIVINITY LP
Label:ALONE RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

LTD 180G VINYL RELEASE IN GATEFOLD SLEEVE!

With their new album WARCHETYPE have managed to combine a clean, clear sound with a fierceness and a darkness reminiscent of the times that were beginning to take shape early masterpieces of doom. A sound made by highlighting the amazing riffs that make this album an essential classic for those who love this genre. Track after track the band visit with respect and reverence but as an equal player, the great masters of the genre. Slow, heavy and dark riffing, voices calling from the depths of hell but the next moment accompany melodies of great beauty, that sense of endless time that should have every good band that cultivates this genre. And all this while retaining a distinct identity, which have been entrenched in their previous work and that in this, his third release with Alone Records, is brighter than ever.

Intense and epic heavy doom for fans of Black Sabbath, Internal Void Saint Vitus or Electric Wizard.

 

 

NO RETURN

Band:FLESHPRESS
Album:NO RETURN
Label:ALONE RECORDS
Format:12\\\" EP VINYL
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

The four long tracks comprised in these two 12" EPs should be considered Fleshpress' brand new (5th) album... or not? The band decided to split these +41 minutes in two separate vinyl releases instead. According to the band: It was clear from the beginning that these tracks can´t be one unified full lenght but rather two own entities. "Rebuild / Crumble" is a two song concept minialbum revolving around the "title theory". Artwork showing how man´s achievements just crumble in front of nature's "rebuilding" abilities. While lyrics deal with more personal "crumble-rebuild" cycle. "No return" is an ugly, uncompromising trip to black psychodelia. It´s a soundtrack for the last two men on earth to raise a giant middle finger statue on the most remote island. The tracks just don´fit well together to make a complete album, but rather two seperate journeys into different regions of the beast known as Fleshpress.

Album:UNEARTHLY TRANCE / SUMA SPLIT
Label:ALONE RECORDS
Format:12 VINYL / CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Each side of this record features the other band's vocalist along with some contributing noise from the other band. This unique idea all came together very spontaneously and it serves as a document of true exploration and experiment of the unknown forces of control. The results are very exciting and unlike anything each band has done. This collaboration somehow morphed the two bands together in an unprecedented yet very pleasing way. This vinyl / cd is meant to commemorate their forthcoming USA tour in the fall 2010 where the band will share the stage with each other once again.

BOX

Band:COLORAMA
Album:BOX
Label:SEE MONKEY DO MONKEY
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Folk

Utter the word Colorama to any serious indie music fan and you’ll get a knowing wink or firm handshake. Why? Because group leader Carwyn Ellis composes, plays and sings some of the most awe inspiring and beautiful songs heard this decade. As an in demand musician Carwyn may have worked with Oasis, Shane MacGowan and Edwyn Collins, amongst others, but it’s his own Cardiff based group Colorama that really deserve the most attention. The cover of new album Box may proudly – and loudly – state where the reference points come from musically, but the depth of the performances, musicianship, song writing and production leave all competition standing at the starting line. Box is at once reminiscent of the best old record shop finds and as deferential and startlingly new as the best Beck, Espers or The Coral recordings, Box is a serious music fan and appreciators dream. Colorama may well have just written and recorded your favourite album of 2010. The end of year polls beckon.

“Incredible!” Huw Stephens, Radio 1

“Carwyn is a genius musician. Just ask Roddy Frame, one of Carwyn biggest fans! I'm loving his new record. Wonderful.” Edwyn Collins

"Carwyn Ellis is a genius!” Sean Rowley, BBC

“Colorama have many strings to their bow, but all of them perfectly enchanting. Prepare to fall in love!” Rough Trade

 

 

THE FUTURE SOUND OF ASHTON

Band:THE MOLES
Album:THE FUTURE SOUND OF ASHTON
Label:SEE MONKEY DO MONKEY
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

In a brightly painted bunker in Bristol, The Moles are making music that goes way below the underground. Reminiscent of Damon Albarn, lyricist Mole Brin Davies fully understands the correlation between the disconnected playfulness of Syd Barret and the art school nihilism of the early punk movement. Across 15 songs the group forge a distinct sound, relying on simple production (lovingly re-created in Fuller's attic) rather than the everything-but-the-kitchen sink effect laden approach of the Sgt Pepper school of recording. Grammy winner Billy Fuller (also a member of BEAK>, Fuzz Against Junk and Robert Plant & The Strange Sensation… yes, ROBERT PLANT) supplies many a memorable bass line whilst Davies’ characteristic English vocals may well leave the same lasting impression as Ray Davies, Robyn Hitchcock, Howard Devoto and Jarvis Cocker… even when having explosive US garage-punk/psych edges, the forlorn, upbeat, funny and sad music of The Moles is as English as fish ’n’ chips at the end of Weston-Super Mare pier! For fans of: The Flaming Lips, Blur, The Soft Boys, Billy Childish

"Think Syd Barrett fronting a garage band” Keith Clark, Evening Post

 

 

THE VOIDIST

Band:IMAAD WASIF
Album:THE VOIDIST
Label:VIVA HATE
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Folk

In another life, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Imaad Wasif might have been a poet or a priest. He draws inspiration from beyond the veil, seeking connections and cosmic patters in the hopes of expressing the simplest but most profound message to his listeners: We are not alone. Early on he played live and in the studio with Lou Barlow’s Folk Implosion. In 2006, Kill Rock Stars released Wasif’s self-titled solo debut, an acoustic psych gem. Around the same time, he was enlisted as a touring guitarist and opening act for Yeah YeahYeahs. Sophomore album Strange Hexes revealed Wasif’s varied influences. The album was recorded with his band Two Part Beast (Bobb Bruno and Adam Garcia) and self-released in March 2008. That album was the first to hint at the distinctive sound Wasif has ultimately crafted for himself; a blast of postmodern psychedelic rock that is at once potent and refined. The album will be re-released by Viva Hate Records in 2010. His collaboration with Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bradford Cox of Deerhunter, and “Little” Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs and Dead Weather on the score for the Spike Jonze-directed film adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are hits theaters in October. The theme of love in its many guises, both as redemption and call to arms, is one that Wasif returns to again and again in his songs. Its mythical quality becomes a springboard from which he explores the mysteries of life and the universe on his third album, The Voidist. Recorded with Two Part Beast, plus guests Dale Crover (Melvins) and Greg Burns (Red Sparowes), by Chad Bamford (Weezer) with additional recordings by Mathias Schneeberger (The Obsessed, Gutter Twins), the release is due from Viva Hate Records in October 2010.

Band:MUTANT
Album:LASERDROME

Format:CD
Genre:Metal

MUTANT is one of the most hotly tipped and talked about of a new breed of British metal bands. Hailing from West London they came to prominence in the Summer of 2009 supporting EVILE where they garnered great reviews and began to attract a serious fanbase who were blown away with the bands ferocious, technical prowess and fresh attitude. Since then they have toured the UK with GAMA BOMB, played BLOODSTOCK and are confirmed for both HARD ROCK HELL in December and HAMMERFEST in March 2011. The Laserdrome EP, the bands first offering, originally only available via their website or at gigs is now making a long awaited commercial release!

STAMPEDE FINALE

Band:THE FIRE AND I
Album:STAMPEDE FINALE
Label:CRASH CAR
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

The Fire and I are an energetic two-piece from Scotland. Using only bass and drums, they have molded a very distinctive and powerful sound, often difficult to comprehend from their two members. Debut album 'Stampede Finale' showcases the adrenaline-fuelled energy and sheer rock credibility of The Fire And I. Tracks like 'Left and Right' and ‘Just Face It’ are graceful and catchy anthems, adding contrast to the surrounding noise-rock that relentlessly grabs the listener by the throat. With ‘Control' and 'Mr K’, the band trample on any notions of mellow, and unearth an intense new sound. ‘Dark in The Shade’ is a powerful closer with a shouting chorus and fierce drumbeat, capturing the band’s unique style in one song. An enticing combination of music and minds.

The Fire And I have played 'In The City' and 'T in the Park' and have supported the likes of Biffy Clyro.

JUKEBOX OF MALADIES

Band:THE BLUE HEARTS
Album:JUKEBOX OF MALADIES
Label:militant
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

THE BLUE HEARTS have a proud history of pushing the boundaries of contemporary rock, blues and americana since 1992 when their first album “Lullaby For The Lost”, and follow up single “Hearts About To Break” prompted interest from national TV, radio and press. Their second album “No More Long Goodbyes” (1995) achieved worldwide radio play and the single “Defenseless” reached no 30 on the Nashville independent music chart, followed by their third and most atmospheric album “Dark Side Of Town”. Their new album is a strong step forward into a new contemporary sound, which the band have dubbed ‘neon rock’, drawing on the roots of rock n roll mixed with the sexuality of a late night speakeasy, adding ethereal harmony, and a cathedral of guitar, violin and pedal steel. Blue Hearts fans throughout the world will be thrilled to hear the new album, a return to their innovative core, and their best work yet.

SPEAK THE LANGUAGE

Band:DEAD SNARES
Album:SPEAK THE LANGUAGE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Dead Snares is the artistic creation of Jeffrey Cain from the band Remy Zero. One late night after a recording session in a burst of frenzied inspiration, Cain entered the studio alone without an agenda…“no words, no chords, no idea,” notes Jeffrey. Three tracks emerged in first takes. Feeling unattached to what came out of these recordings, Jeffrey titled it Dead Snares to represent a negated trap, or one that didn’t work. The result is an 11 song masterpiece. Speak The Language is a swirling surge of hypnotic beats with lyrics that are both seeking and foreboding. The recording represents a turning point for Jeffrey Cain and the freedom to create anew. Former Remy Zero guitarist Jeffrey Cain - RZ had records on Warner/Elektra and toured with Radiohead.

Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Americana singer/songwriter Jeff Finlin began his performing career as the drummer in the Thieves, which issued a pair of LPs on Capitol before disbanding. Several years later he signed to MCA as a solo act, recording an album which went unreleased; Finlin ultimately signed to producer Pete Anderson's Little Dog label, issuing his debut Highway Diaries in 1997. Two years later, Original Fin appeared on NBFNY. The third and final leg of Jeff Finlin’s CD trilogy series leads us through the last journey of an everyman hero, Willie Ray Babel, and his quest for Spiritual Liberation. 

“Last seen in the UK supporting Steve Earle, Finlin is an all-American original whose singing recalls John Hiatt, Dylan and even Dr John. But his songwriting has its own unique character and seems to become more honed and concentrated with every album." Nigel Williamson, Uncut

 

 

AN ADVENTURE 1999-2009

Band:MIKE MARSHALL
Album:AN ADVENTURE 1999-2009
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

For the fearless musical explorer Mike Marshall, the mandolin is far more than a vehicle for self-expression. The diminutive eight-string instrument (and its larger sibling, the mandocello) is a passport for far-flung musical adventures, from Scandinavia and Appalachia to South America and the Bay Area. Anything but a tourist, Marshall delves deeply wherever he stops, forging relationships that leave him and his collaborators transformed. A selection of tracks released on Adventure Music, the label he co-founded with Richard Zirinsky, Jr., this anthology is something of a travelogue documenting Marshall’s various sojourns with friends old and new over the past 15 years, while also showcasing his uncanny gift for writing vivid, captivating melodies.

CRISALIDE

Band:THE LOVECRAVE
Album:CRISALIDE
Label:Repo
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The story of The LoveCrave was born amongst the metropolitan ashes of the big city, Milan united with the ancient and silent atmosphere of Venice. The band is formed of two experienced rock musicians from Milan and two old, good friends that moved to Milan to make music. The mix of sounds is an explosive magic potion and The LoveCrave realized it right away when they played together for the first time. What The LoveCrave were looking for during the recordings was a rough, elegant and new sound at the same time, taking inspiration also from Iron Maiden and eighties sound to the Depeche Mode, curing every detail but trying to leave that instinctive and rough edge untouched. They create in their mind a sort of Blade Runner world and try to put music in it. All this can be found on their 2006 debut “The Angel and the Rain”. “The Angel and the Rain” caught the interest of the European media in short time. Supported by the main magazines (Hard, Metal Maniac, Zillo, Sonic Seducer…) and big rock/metal radios The LoveCrave left for a German tour with Canadian The Birthday Massacre, played as headliners at the famous Camden Underworld in London UK, recorded 4 acoustic tracks for Total Rock Radio in London, played as headliners at the Alcatraz, the biggest club in Milan, Italy and built a very solid fan base. In November 2007 the band won an award as Best Italian Band on International Ground at the MEI (Independent Labels Meeting) presented by the Italien music magazine Rock Sound. The roughness of rock mixed with a modern kind of electronic create the magic behind the sharp punk rock vein in Francesca’s voice that is totally different from all the other female singers voices and the killer songwriting of a band made of real musicians make the difference. The LoveCrave are ready for the burst with their new songs and for more tours and festivals in 2010 and 2011. The LoveCrave are definitely back. After the release of their brand new album “SOUL SALIVA”, a masterpiece of original modern rock with great personality and awesome songwriting, they now present an enhanced EP called “Crisalide”. 11 tracks plus a quicktime movie of the video-clip “Trhiller! A real must in your CD collection.

BEST IN TENSIONS

Band:LOVE OF EVERYTHING
Album:BEST IN TENSIONS
Label:Seayou
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

An integral part of the Midwest music scene for over a decade, Love of Everything’s Bobby Burg is keeping himself interested by consistently re-imagining the sound of the band. Recorded at Chicago’s Semaphore Recording Ltd. on the city’s west side by Neil Strauch (Bonnie Prince Billy, Iron & Wine), Best In Tensions marks the first time Burg has taken a whole album worth of his short, catchy, naive music poems out of the bedroom and into the studio. This time he’s not doing it alone. Joined by his former illegal immigrant wife Elisse La Roche, as well as friends, past and future band mates and whomever else was on-hand to lend their talents, Best In Tensions shelves the “one-man band” ideal in favor of the richer, fuller sound of a band with multiple members. La Roche had never played drums before joining Love of Everything. Motivated by an opportunity to tour Europe, she learned the basics, studied the songs and found herself installed as Love of Everything’s permanent drummer. Love of Everything are Bobby Burg and Elisse La Roche, with additional help from Tim Kinsella (Joan of Arc)

Album will be released via Polyvinyl in the USA, followed by a EU/UK tour in November/December 2010 supporting Joan Of Arc.

Gold, mastered by Roger Lian (The White Stripes, Madonna, The Killers, Smashing Pumpkins, and The Strokes) at Masterdisk in New York City, is the culmination of a series of three EPs; Better Off (2009) which Performer Magazine called, “An artful sonic balance that's miles beyond the typical indie-rock release," and the CMJ Top 200-charting Broken Machine (2008).

The Music Video of “Bitch” gets hundreds of views a week on YouTube and has gained comparisons to Siouxsie Sioux and Karen O of the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs.

 

 

NEVER COMES SILENCE

Band:REVELATION
Album:NEVER COMES SILENCE
Label:Shadow Kingdom
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Coming into their sophomore album, Revelation ended up losing their bass player, Bert Hall (to pursue other music) and recruited Josh Hart. The album started off as a demo and was also the album where the band felt like they had corrected their mistakes on the “Salvation’s Answer” debut. Shortly after they finished writing the entire album, the band had good fortune to meet up with Hellhound Records who happened to be signing a lot of the local Doom Metal bands. This album is sort of a tribute to hard times John Brenner was going through and shortly after the album came out, he left the band until the turn of the century. This is a staple album in the Doom Metal genre and surely is a great mix of Black Sabbath and Rush, which could be considered as Progressive Doom if you want to get technical. There’s a bonus gig on the multimedia CD that you can watch on your computer with this line up of John, Josh, and Steve.

 

 

ARMED TO THE TEETH / KICK IT OUT

Band:CRISIS
Album:ARMED TO THE TEETH / KICK IT OUT
Label:Shadow Kingdom
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Obscure US 80's Metal band CRISIS formed back in 1980. Taking a heavy dose of their influences from MOTORHEAD, RAVEN, IRON MAIDEN, and the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, it wasn't to big of a suprise that they got signed to an English label, Bullet Records. Their debut came out in 1984 "Armed To The Teeth" and of course their music was much bigger in Europe than the USA because they weren't another Motley Crue or Quiet Riot band. After the well received first album, the band's label went bankrupt and the second album "Kick It Out" failed to reach European distributors and their established fans. The band struggled on and eventually called it quits. This release contains the band's entire career on a double disc with a full color booklet with the band's history and lyrics.

Label:ROCKADROME
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Nearly 3 decades after the group's formation and a couple years after their recent reformation, this legendary underground San Francisco progressive heavy metal band unleashes their first full length debut album for the Rockadrome label. Consisting solely of newly recorded material culled from their early 80s heyday, it's destined to be the classic album everyone has long awaited from this magical group. Led by guitarist Thaen Rasmussen and vocalist/bassist Aaron Zimpel, the integrity of their original sound is fully maintained here and should please anyone who has followed the band through the years or owned any of their heavily circulated demo tapes. A 12-page color booklet with liner notes written by San Francisco metal legend Ron Quintana (KUSF/Metal Mania), cover art by Mark Devito (Motorhead) and packed with lyrics and photos, completes this magnificent and much anticipated release. Influenced heavily by 70s hard rock like Rush, Scorpions and classic guitar players from that era.

 

 

A NEW DAY DAWNING

Band:SIENA ROOT
Album:A NEW DAY DAWNING
Label:ROCKADROME
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Reissued! The fantastic 2004 debut album from one of Sweden's most talented hard rock groups. Their finely honed sound is firmly planted in the classic heavy rock of the early 70s and draws on influences from groups like Led Zeppelin, Captain Beyond, Jethro Tull, Blind Faith and Deep Purple! These guys sound so convincing you'd be hard pressed to tell them apart from those that influence them or early 70s rock groups like Aunt Mary, November, Host, Kalevala, Young Flowers and others with that vintage Scandinavian heavy prog style. These guys are pure old school, right down to the fully analog recordings and tasteful use of organ and flute. This is probably their heaviest album overall and a good starting point because it just truly is a real monster from start to finish! It's a no-brainer for fans of Witchcraft, Dead Man, Graveyard, Dungen, etc.., but also just about anyone into high quality 70s hard rock and prog would being doing themselves a disservice not to give these guys a listen!

"Just check out the magical "Roots", that is like the perfect cross between the Doors and early Uriah Heep, but still with SIENA ROOT'S very own signature. But here are not only four or five outstanding cuts to discover - it's the whole album that rules, and although it sounds like a standard phrase it's the truth." - Cosmic Lava

Album:NIGHT SPIRIT
Label:DE TENEBRARUM PRINCIPIO
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Naturalistic Black Metal from Sweden in the purest form. The magic of the ’90s is brought back by an untainted act marked by dark feelings and reminding us the early Summoning evocative strength. Landscapes and visions of thoughtful solitude evoke the melancholy of a lost time, when obscure majesty was subsumed under an epic saga. Obscurantist rawness of the early years is seen through the eyes of a Northern-land wanderer: Lustre can really make time turn back to forgotten ages..

Recommended for fans of BURZUM, SUMMONING, SKEPTICISM, and HYPOTHERMIA.

Format:CD

The Moljebka Pvlse album Zojo was recorded during the Mathias studies at the Royal Institute of Art. He was inspired by the longest night of the year in Stockholm, the day when there is almost no daylight. His ambition was to make an acoustic album of minimal music without any musical instruments. Moljebka Pvlse setup long nylon strings across his entire studio at school, which he then plucked and bowed and recorded with his favorite contact microphones on that very night. These recordings became the fundament of the album and set the tone for the rest of the work. Moljebka Pvlse are very grateful for the contribution by the Japanese artist Michiko Kashiba on this album.

VOLUME TWO

Band:TOMBSTONES
Album:VOLUME TWO
Label:Transubstans
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

"Volume II" is a 9-song-long manifestation of how heavy rock should sound like in 2010. The album is recorded live and analog, and will kick-start rock-hearts with a weakness for warm and tube-driven distortion. The sound of Tombstones is crushingly massive, suggestive and down-tuned, and has references to the best milestones of heavy-rock through time. The collaboration of Billy Anderson and Audun Strype from the prior album continues and they purify the sound Tombstones has developed as their trademark on "Volume II". Through riffs, sounds, lyrics and mood the fog comes oozing from the dark woods of Norway.

The Ukranian folk masters are back with their fourth full length album. Holy Blood has had a storied history, rising up from the ashes of death metal band Requital. Their first release, The Wanderer, was a mix of death and black with some folk influence and was very well received. The second release, the critically acclaimed Waves Are Dancing (still one of Bombworks' all-time top selling CDs), saw more of a shift to folk metal, primarily featuring the flute as the non-traditional metal instrument. The Patriot saw the band continue to morph, blending symphonic black metal with folk. Now, hot off the press is the newest release from Holy Blood, Shining Sun, which is the epitome of a folk metal album: thick and heavy guitars, extreme and operatic / chanting vocals (both male and female), and heavy use of many non-traditional instruments, including the block fluta, buzka, and valinca. For fans of Eluveitie, Wintersun, Finntroll, Falkenbach, and black, death, and folk metal.

In Cold Blood released 'Hell on Earth" ten years ago on Victory Records and also did some live shows including a European tour. What a lot of people don't know is the band made a selftitled 7" in 1995 and recorded the 'Suicide King' demo in 1999. Those tracks were compiled together with a bunch of live songs from a show in 1998 in Germany and released as an LP on Pulling Teeth’s Dom’s A389 label. Demons Run Amok from Germany is now taking care of the CD release. The recordings are vile, angry and In Cold Blood is mixing oldschool hardcore in the vein of old Agnostic Front and Septic Death with the metal of Slayer. The songs are mostly short but contain the riffs, the catchy hooks, awesome breakdowns and solo's Aaron Melnick is known for in Integrity.

LEEWAY

Band:MAKE IT COUNT
Album:LEEWAY
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Leeway is the GSR debut album of the Berlin based band Make It Count. With an album titled "Leeway" you certainly set expectations high. Don't expect Make It Count to sound like the band Leeway cause they just don't. Make It Count plays old school hardcore influenced by the NYHC sound. These 10 tracks are fast and energetic while still maintaining that melody. Besides that the production is also good. It sounds aggressive, just like it should. The artwork, well it's old school... that should say more than enough. It's been a long time since I heard something different from Germany, the second hand mosh started to bore me. This album sounds refreshing and is a nice change. I haven't seen these guys live yet, but I can image the old school kids will go nuts, well if Make It Count is approved by the old school police that is.

 

 

FILLING THE VOID

Band:FINAL PRAYER
Album:FILLING THE VOID
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Filling The Void is Final Prayer's debut album on GSR and is apparently their second full length.. This album will appeal to fans of Hatebreed and Terror. They're not going to re-invent this genre, but what I do like about Final Prayer, is that they don’t seem like a band that is willing to limit itself. In the songs In Denial and We Are The Enemy I hear some fresh hints of a band like The Setup. Closing track More Than Just Music is an excellent dancefloor filler, not in the least thanks to the cool additional vocals by Mike from Punishable Act. Final Prayer mastered the art of delivering a solid album and I’m convinced they have the skills to create a modern classic in the near future. They have a firm ground to built upon and Filling The Void shows a passionate band.

 

 

THE FIRE STILL BURNS

Band:CRUSHING CASPARS
Album:THE FIRE STILL BURNS
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Crushing Caspars have been around for twelve years and most euro kids probably heard about this band. Crushing Caspars play old school hardcore, influence by punk / oi with a european touch. Or as some might call it, eurocore. Labelling it eurocore wouldn't be 100% fair music wise but in my opinion the lyrics and vocalstyle do fit the label eurocore. On the other hand people that love songs about getting drunk and bar fights will love this, so it might just be a matter of personal taste.

 

 

MORE THAN EVER

Band:MORE THAN EVER
Album:MORE THAN EVER
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

POISON FREE: "More Than Ever hailing from Ludwigsburg/Germany come along with their second fill-length. This record is an evidence for hard work and progression. The listener recognizes a huge amount of development, and although you don’t know past More Than Ever releases you get to feel that this record is all about dedication and keeping a special spirit alive. This spirit definitely is inspired by several things. Most of these things the listener won’t get a real clue about, but obvious influences can be identified. 90’s Hardcore like Battery can be names as well as Modern HC bands like Shai Hulud, to name the ones mostly associated to More Than Ever".
