LAST WORDS: THE FINAL RECORDINGS

Band:SCREAMING TREES
Album:LAST WORDS: THE FINAL RECORDINGS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

In the waning months of the 20th century, legendary Seattle band Screaming Trees went back into the studio one last time. Having been released from their label and realizing that the outlook was grim, the Trees entered Stone Gossard's Studio Litho to preserve the last batch of songs the band had written. Financed by the band and produced by drummer Barrett Martin, these sessions proved to be their last. Twelve years later, in the winter of 2011, Martin and long-time friend and producer Jack Endino found the two-inch multi-track reels, carefully baked and cleaned the tapes, transferred them to a digital format, and brought those final 10 songs back to life. To their pleasant surprise, the music had a raw, energetic quality, with the band cracking jokes and howling with laughter between takes - they were clearly having a good time. These final sessions were a remarkable last testament to the band's impressive 15-year career.

"One of their very best,a fine last gasp from one of the Pacific Northwest's great groups" - Mojo October 2011.

TRUE TRAITOR, TRUE WHORE

Band:LEVIATHAN
Album:TRUE TRAITOR, TRUE WHORE
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

One of the most notorious and now controversial black metal entities to ever set foot upon this cursed genre over the last ten or so years, LEVIATHAN (and its sole commander Wrest, aka famed tattoo artist Jef Whitehead) has been seen as one of the genre’s most creative and prolific artists. Emerging from the depths of the Bay Area in the early moments of last decade by releasing a slew of demo tapes (which would then culminate in the infamous “Verrater” compilation), LEVIATHAN would eventually gain recognition on a more wide scale with the “Ten Sublevel Of Suicide” debut. Said album was praised as one of the most “transcendental” black metal albums ever recorded for its time and from there LEVIATHAN would be known as one of the most in-demand artists within the black metal scene today.

Several albums, EPs, splits, and offshoot projects later, LEVIATHAN has been resurrected from its slumber by Wrest, after a tumulus several years, Wrest has unleashed his hatred and despair into the form of an album he has christened “True Traitor, True Whore”. Recorded and produced by Sanford Parker (LEVIATHAN’s first time recording an album in an actual studio), “True Traitor, True Whore” is a vicious, surreal, bizarre opus, and probably the most progged-out LEVIATHAN album to date. But most notably, “True Traitor, True Whore” will find its way as the most talked about black metal release of 2011.

Album:HOLY SHIT
Label:REDFIELD
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

2011 cannot come soon enough for Vancouver’s Living With Lions as the band prepares for the release of their second fulllength record, provocatively titled “Holy Shit”. It has been a long and winding road since the band formed in 2007. The band first emerged in Canada with the release of their acclaimed “Dude Manor EP”, followed quickly by their debut full-length “Make Your Mark” via Black Box (2008) & Adeline (2009). That record produced the popular single “A Bottle Of Charades” which has been featured on a handful of compilations and video game placements, and saw video play on Fuse and MuchMusic. This release also got them included in Alternative Press’ 100 Bands to Know for 2010. The progression that this record shows is evidenced by the international interest that it is generating. With confirmed and coordinated releases in Canada (Black Box), the United States (Adeline), Japan (Ice Grills), Australia (3Wise) and Europe (Redfield Records), the world is embracing Living With Lions.

Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

"If it’s to be a battle of Conan vs. Slomatics it’s hard to pick one as a winner over the other, but Conan probably have more working in their favor in terms of originality and complete aesthetic. That said, both bands certainly have their appeal, and if they’re taking each other on, the real winner is anyone who hears these six tracks. Two trios of planetary heaviness coming together to demonstrate the strength and potency of the UK doom scene. Damn right it’s recommended." (The Obelisk)

 

 

HAMMER OF THE GODS

Band:HAMMER OF THE GODS
Album:HAMMER OF THE GODS
Label:LONE VIGIL
Format:CD EP
Genre:Metal

An onslaught of riffs heavy enough to flatten the Parthenon combine with drums that pound like the feet of ancient armies to crush any expectations you might have. Throw the occasional squealing guitar solo into the arena, and add a venomous vocal line spitting lyrics about that most Metal of topics – the mythology of the violent and decadent ancients – and there’s no doubting their credentials. Hammer of the Gods drive home their well-crafted songs with an intensity that few come close to.

Early 2011 saw the band embark on a UK tour in support of Crowbar, garnering the respect of the Metal audience and beginning the rebuilding of their empire with a mighty and memorable show of force. Their self-titled debut EP was recorded at Outhouse Studios and produced by John Mitchell. The three brand new tracks on the release include 'The Halting' & ‘Earthshaker’ both of which Daniel P. Carter has featured on the Radio 1 Rock Show. The band are continuing to support the release of this release with festival appearances at this year’s Sonisphere & Bloodstock Festivals.

ALL IS CHAOS

Band:STEAK NUMBER EIGHT
Album:ALL IS CHAOS
Label:VZW
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

With an average age of just 18, STEAK NUMBER EIGHT is probably the youngest hard rock band in Belgium to enjoy genuine national success; At the age of 15 they won the HUMO Rock Rally, hosted by Belgium’s biggest rock magazine, (which had previously launched the Country’s biggest Belgian artist such as DEUS, Black Box Revelation and Milow), making them national treasures. Mainstream newspaper coverage, TV appearances and radio play resulted in fans of hard rock across the country, young and old, flocking to shows, which became a major talking point in themselves.

With a confidence and professionalism far beyond what one would expect from such a young band, STEAK NUMBER EIGHT’s live performance is more an experience than a show - enormous, hard-hitting riffs sandwiched between moody, atmospheric interludes, with the band themselves reminiscent of what a supergroup consisting of members of Isis, Mastodon and Killing Joke might sound like if fronted by a young Kurt Cobain

HOSETHIEF BEATS

Band:GREGORY SCOTT SLAY
Album:HOSETHIEF BEATS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Gregory Scott Slay, former drummer of Remy Zero, lost a life-long battle with Cystic Fibrosis on Jan 1, 2010. Though he left us too soon, he had lived about 20 years longer than anyone expected – and (as evidenced by his ample musical output) made every day worth it. Horsethief Beats was the record Slay finished only a few months before he passed. Slay played wrote, sang, and performed practically everything on Horsethief Beats – and because of that we have an odd little creature that resembles Trent Reznor’s dark funk and David Bowie’s late-seventies madness. Short, sweet, and bearing a spooky grimace, Horsethief Beats is a record best enjoyed loud and on repeat.

 

 

WELCOME TO ALABAMA

Band:KENNETH BRIAN BAND
Album:WELCOME TO ALABAMA
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

The debut album from The Kenneth Brian Band is an introduction to the New South, by way of a relentless attack of tracks featuring masterful song-crafting, blistering guitar work, spot-on harmonies, and a take-no-prisoners-rhythm section, all tied together by Brian's honest voice and unapologetically strait-forward point of view. Welcome To Alabama shines like a beacon for those who fear that Southern Culture is all but lost, and moreover, proves that it isn't lost at all. Produced by the legendary Johnny Sandlin (Allman Bros. Band), the album features a who's who of Southern music-makers including David Hood, Randall Bramblett, Bonnie Bramlett, Jason Isbell, and more. With their first album, The Kenneth Brian Band has created a Southern Rock Tour De Force that, like its’ namesake, is both progressive and steeped in tradition. Welcome To Alabama.

“Kenneth is really unbelievable as a guitar player, he’s a real shit-kicking gunslinger with great chops and then he writes songs in that Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt vein of songwriting. It’s not only a hell of a rock ‘n’ roll sound, but the songs are there if you are listening.” - Huntington Herald Dispatch

 

 

TEMPERED IN FIRE

Band:LISA MILLS
Album:TEMPERED IN FIRE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

Blazing through a varied landscape of Southern Roots—from the blues of Lisa Mills’ Mississippi birthplace to Muscle Shoals soul—Tempered in Fire showcases Mills’ stunning voice, described by Grahame Rhodes of Blues in the Northwest as being “like a full-throated female Otis Redding.” Recorded and mixed in an all-analogue studio in the countryside of Kent, England, Tempered in Fire includes the considerable talents of guitarist Andy Fairweather Lowe (Amen Corner, Eric Clapton, and Roger Waters) and longtime accompanist, bassist Ian Jennings (Big Town Playboys, Jeff Beck, Van Morrison, and Tom Jones.) All tracks, except for her haunting solo version of “These Arms of Mine,” were written by Mills or someone she knows personally—“from Mobile to Macclesfield,” she laughs.

“When Robert Plant tells you that someone is worth checking out, it’s probably worth listening, when he calls that person a great singer, even more so.” -Blues Matters

CHRYSALIS

Band:MAN ON FIRE
Album:CHRYSALIS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Chrysalis sees Man on Fire significantly stretching their sound, which has always been described as refreshingly free of obvious influences. For Chrysalis the band has expanded to a six-piece group. In addition to founding member vocalist/keyboardist Jeff Hodges on grand piano, vintage organs, synths and samples, and Eric Sands, once again providing his signature and distinctive elastic fretless bass and dynamic guitar work, the new Man on Fire lineup features the soulful voice of Elise Testone as co-vocalist, percussion phenom Quentin Ravenel on drums, internationally renown trumpeter Cameron Harder Handel, and classically trained virtuoso violinist Jenny Hugh. Together they create a sound that is more natural, yet ornate, organic, and darkly cinematic than previous Man on Fire releases.

 

 

AURA aka SATIVA

Band:AURA
Album:AURA aka SATIVA
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

A heavy, oft-sampled slab of Bay Area history—and a psych/funk masterpiece that cannot be denied. Aura formed in 1974 and played extensively throughout Northern California. By 1976, the band recorded their first and only album at Pacific Recording Studio in San Mateo. The original title of the album was meant to be “Sativa”, but out of fear that promoting the joys of marijuana would be too controversial, the band omitted the title and just left it as “Aura”. Over the ensuing decades, the Aura album (Chakra CH 001) has grown in stature to become a major soul/funk collector's item. It features a number of major funk tracks plus funky ballads with female vocals. Standouts include 'Sativa' (heavy 70's funk with waterpipe sound effects and blistering guitar), and the manic fuzz-guitar jam 'Skyrocket.' Old style tip-on jacket, and quality vinyl pressing, mastered from the original tapes.

Limited edition of 1,000 copies - Exact replica edition of rare funk collector’s item.

 

 

SANDROSE

Band:SANDROSE
Album:SANDROSE
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

One week in Studio Davout was all it took for Sandrose to record an album that has long been considered one of the most important to emerge from France. After a failed stint as Eden Rose, the various members of that ensemble, led by guitarist extraordinaire Jean-Pierre Alarcen, decided to try a new approach. Their first move was to add a singer. Alarcen had been struck by the vocal timbre of Rose Podwojny (later to become foxy pop sensation Rose Laurens) on a William Sheller demo, and roped her into the band, which was newly dubbed Sandrose. They started rehearsals, and rapidly built a repertoire, mainly Alarcen compositions. He was strongly influenced by both classical symphonic music and rock and roll; his goal was to combine both musical styles, which he finally achieved in several new compositions. The resulting album is something special. On their sole release (Polydor, 1972), Sandrose play a superb mellow proto-progressive rock based on the continuous floating sounds of the mellotron, incisive guitar interventions by Alarcen, and singer Rose Podwojny’s powerful, clear voice.

An elegant 16-page booklet reproduces all original LP art; liner-notes tell the band’s history, and include rare photos, discography, and translations of several contemporary articles.

 

 

THE SEA DERS ANTHOLOGY

Band:THE SEA-DERS
Album:THE SEA DERS ANTHOLOGY
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

This disc contains all known recordings of infectious Middle Eastern inflected rock/beat from the Sea-Ders (or Cedars), Lebanon's top musical export to the world. Eight dynamic tracks, with driving rhythms, blazing electric bouzouki (or oud?), recorded between 1966-1968. Fantastic! Starting in 1965, many groups began to borrow elements of Eastern music to add a little mystery and exotica to their sound. Some prominent examples of this trend include the Kinks’ 'See My Friends,' the Beatles’ 'Norwegian Wood,' and the Byrds’ 'Eight Miles High'; less well-known than the aforementioned acts, but considered masters of the form by those in the know, were the Sea-Ders. For them it wasn’t a case of flirting with foreign culture—they tapped right into the source, there in their own backyard! Decca Records contacted the group and offered them a record deal in the UK. The Sea-ders relocated to London, and in 1967 Decca released ‘Thanks A Lot’ b/w ‘Undecidedly.' The record got some airplay on the pirate stations, but failed to break into the charts. Nevertheless, Decca went ahead with an EP release, featuring three tracks along with the fine ‘Cause I Do Care.’ Apparently the record had a very limited pressing, as it’s now very rare, despite being one of the most exciting releases of the era.

Band:PARZIVAL
Album:BAROCK
Label:SIREENA
Format:LP
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

After the debut album "Legend" (Sireena 4007) Sireena Records now releases the second and final album "BaRock" back again on heavy 180 gram vinyl, too. Unlike the original edition this album appears even in the gatefold cover. Another document from the probably most innovative years of rock musicnsistently the musicians followed their course to theIr 2nd and final album of 1973. "BaRock" was a perfect blend of progressive folk, art rock and classical elements. The musicians had also looked for reinforcements for the recordings. The Aachener Zeitung (German daily paper) wrote after the release: "This is not only worth listening to music of the 70s, that's almost a chore to listen to. Here different influences merge into a warm convincing sound. " Nevertheless, “BaRock became the final step of PARZIVAL. The band split! The musicians were spread in all directions. In 1977 Lothar Siems and Walter Quintus released the critically acclaimed rock opera "Der Führer" . Quintus is still successful working in the music business. The history of PARZIVAL however, was terminated.

Band:HEROINA
Album:HEROINA
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

The German trio HEROINA recorded early nineties of the last century one of the most exciting albums ever made in Germany. The musicians took popular titles from REM, Patti Smith, Prince, Sex Pistols, The Stranglers and Edith Piaf and interpreted them according to their own ideas. The result was one of the most danceable albums ever to come out of Germany – directly on the desk of the DJs. Indie rock goes dancefloor! The idea worked: Hardly a dance hall, which did not present HEROINA, incidentally, also abroad. HEROINA recorded only this album. The members of HEROINA came from respected indie projects like Die Erde, Donna Regina, Kastrierte Philosophen, The Perc Meets The Hidden Gentleman.

Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

After 17 years of strategically scattered EPs & demos, EMBALMED finally mark their triumphant return with their very first fulllength album. Hailing from the darkest abyss of Mexico, EMBALMED leave nothing to subtlety when it comes to their raison d'etre - "Exalt the Imperial Beast"! A ceaselessly violent, gnawing torrent of black/death barbarity and sulfurous ritualism that is equally atrocious and dark but still retains a certain Death Metal character in the songwriting. A cult name that lurked in the shadows for far too long, EMBALMED surpass 95% of what is being offered in the current "black/death" scene - worship or die!

Bad ass old school cover artwork holds a work that is a must for die hard fans of later ENGLISH DOGS, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, G.I.S.M., later GBH, and the almighty MOTORHEAD.

 

 

THE LATE HOURS

Band:VLADIMIRS
Album:THE LATE HOURS
Label:Hells Headbangers
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Darkness comes in many forms, and for Hells Headbangers it's not always extreme metal. Darkest proof in the form of THE VLADMIRS, who first made their black mark at the forefront of the mid-'90s, during the second wave of horror-punk, and now 16 years later animate their eighth zombified creation entitled "The Late Hours." Indelible, utterly anthemic punk rock that's eerily dark and shadow-draped, THE VLADMIRS here pay respect to horror-punk legends before them whilst creeping on with their well-established identity, resulting in a rollicking ride through the graveyard when the devil's on the loose - run far and free with them during "The Late Hours"...
