CATAHARSIS

Band:YOB
Album:CATAHARSIS
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

There are many YOB and doom metal fans alike that consider YOB’s second full-length album “Catharsis” as the band’s best album. The band have been aware of this, which in turn had them perform “Catharsis” in its entirety at the 2012 edition of the respected Roadburn Festival to much acclaim. It is considered one of the cult American doom metal albums released in the last ten years. The only issue was that “Catharsis” had been out of print for many years and was hard to come across as the initial label that released it folded and it was never re-pressed or made available. That is until now.

Ten years after its release (though “Catharsis” was recorded in 2002, much before it was first released in Nov of 2003) Profound Lore is proud to unveil the definitive re-issue of YOB’s sought after cult classic. Re-mastered from its original tape source by legendary grunge godfather Tad Doyle, making “Catharsis” sound that much more complete and monstrous than its original incarnation, along with new artwork and presentation by Aaron Edge and liner notes by YOB mastermind Mike Scheidt, this re-issue (which is just presented with the three tracks that comprise “Catharsis”) of one of the most colossal American doom metal releases of the last ten years is a reminder of how the vision of YOB culminated and began as a singular entity to what it has become today. That being YOB’s recognition as one of the most important bands in heavy music today.

 

 

THE MISSING

Band:VAURA
Album:THE MISSING
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Brooklyn, NY’s VAURA was formed in late 2009 by guitarist Kevin Hufnagel (also of Gorguts and Dysrhythmia fame) and vocalist/guitarist Joshua Strawn when both musicians were introduced by a mutual friend. Strawn would then Strawn give Hufnagel a demo collection of songs he had been working on in which the music was and unorthodox mixture of grandiose melodic guitars, synth textures, and hazy, distant melodic vocals. When bassist Toby Driver (Kayo Dot and Maudlin Of The Well mastermind) and drummer Charlie Schmid joined the fold, VAURA would then expand on the demo material which would then manifest as their debut album “Selenelion” which was released early 2012 on Weird Records and would gain some attention upon its release amongst notable press outlets such as Decibel, Pitchfork, Dusted, and Alarm Press. Said album would display VAURA’s impeccable sound picture by seamlessly combining such genres as progressive metal, shoegaze, post-punk and indie-rock.

With their new album “The Missing”, VAURA have taken their sound even further and build upon the foundation they laid down with “Selenelion”. By enhancing the progressive metal elements even more, along with bringing in elements that hark back to ‘80s era Rush and classic Queensryche, along with the band’s post-punk and classic ‘80s darkwave influence being more prominent, “The Missing” is the result of four unique musicians converging once again to create one of the most distinct heavy music albums of the year.

THE ROCK HOUSE SESSIONS

Band:SEAN CHAMBERS
Album:THE ROCK HOUSE SESSIONS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

After receiving critical acclaim and worldwide radio play for his two previous CD's, when Floridabased guitarist Sean Chambers began planning for his next album release, he decided to do things differently. The Rock House Sessions features a number of firsts: it's the first album he's recorded as Sean Chambers rather than the Sean Chambers Band; producing for the first time is legendary keyboard player Reese Wynans (best-known as a member of Stevie Ray Vaughan's band); and it's his first recording exclusively using studio musicians. Sean's last CD appeared on the Bluesville XM/Sirius Blues Charts as a "Pick to Click" for 6 weeks in a row, as well as 15 weeks on the RMR Weekly Blues Roots Chart and 11 weeks on the House of Blues Radio Chart. Sean Chambers will support the release of The Rock House Sessions with his most extensive cross-country touring yet. 

"Chambers' brand of blues is a no-frills blend of Chicago, Texas, and Delta styles, played with an understated sense of ferocity. Sean came to wail, and he does so with a transparent sense of devotion and scholarship to the music he plays so well." - Mark Uricheck, LIVING BLUES

 

 

READY FIRE AIM

Band:PAUL LAMB AND THE DETROIT BREAKDOWN
Album:READY FIRE AIM
Label:EE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

Ready Fire Aim is the 4th studio album from Paul Lamb and the Detroit Breakdown. It will take you through the drive and riffs of the 70’s, but also has the modern pulse that comes from recording at the legendary Rust Belt Studios(Kid Rock, Uncle Kracker) that keeps it all fresh. Blending blues, classic rock with a dash of Detroit funk.

Paul says of the inspiration for the title ‘Ready, Fire, Aim is a statement. Detroit, like much of the world, is spinning out of control. There is a lot of uncertainty and a lot of guess work. We live in a society of disposable ideas. The world has become a data fire fight, a trigger happy information shoot out. It’s fire first, aim later.’

The Dualers are South London’s much loved Ska and Reggae band who have built up a following of many thousands of fans worldwide.

OH SENSIBILITY

Band:DOMOVOYD
Album:OH SENSIBILITY
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Echoing guitars from the grooves of distant space, Domovoyd drone forth their debut album "Oh Sensibility." Detonated in the year 2010, the band has risen to the forefront of the Finnish Underground. Masters of dark, hypnotic, sprawling hazed-out doom, their music is a flaming celebration of the psychedelic arts from the temples of Hawkwind to Matt Pike's altar of the riff. Capturing the liveenergy that has electrified audiences with their unique, heavy dose of rhythmic sludge, Oh Sensibility is an album that drone heads and doom freaks cannot afford to miss. Swilling the world about in their mouths and spitting it through a cosmic spiral, Domovoyd know how to traverse time and space, and have the necessary intoxicating ingredients to take you there. Saddle up your space rocket and say goodbye to your sensibilities, as Domovoyd, smoking long dead galaxies in their wake, blast you into the furthest reaches of beyond.

 

 

TOMBSTONED

Band:TOMBSTONED
Album:TOMBSTONED
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Funereal directors of rocking doom, Tombstoned have committed their first undead body to the earth. Kicking up new dirt in the old graveyard, with a warm vintage sound that's as fresh as it is genuine. Dragging along truckloads of smoking riffs and coffins of classic, doom-laden heavy rock and roll, these young stalwarts of psychrock have the real magic of a future classic. Brimming with southern swamp atmospheres, reminiscent of Neil Young or Woven Hand and dosed up on heavy Sabbathian, timeless riffs, Tombstone's debut album bristles forth chainsaw guitars that put bands like High Tide ahead of their time. Every bit real-deal purveyors of the finest art, the album is an unforgettable collection of die hard tracks to die for. Vocals like the bastard lovechild of Ozzy, Robert Smith and Hawkwind-era Lemmy hook you into the gloom in a way that's been lost for decades. Just when you thought that heavy classics are getting harder and harder to find, Tombstoned show up in a haze of heaving, dusty doom-rock like a shining diamond in vagrant's tooth.

 

 

LAST CITY ZERO

Band:CORRECTIONS HOUSE
Album:LAST CITY ZERO
Label:WAR CRIMES RECORDINGS
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

CORRECTIONS HOUSE is the collective compulsions of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury. A mysterious cooperative of lost souls, forged unwittingly by the impetuous forces of nature and altered states of consciousness, CORRECTIONS HOUSE is without control of their destiny. Boundless in their genre voyage, CORRECTIONS HOUSE conjure an impossible to pinpoint kaleidoscopic synthesis of mechanical decomposition, atmospheric abnormalities, and poetic putrefaction. They embrace the unkind, the diseased, the forgotten, the morose, their lush anti‐soundscrapes and shadowy verses ‐‐ at once beautifully hideous, graceful and terrifying ‐‐ a manifestation of societal ruin and psychological decay. The transformation of time and space; death begetting life and veils being torn; an imposing dissonance too penetrating to dismiss. CORRECTIONS HOUSE systematically creates and destroys through audio disease and transcendent musical deconstruction. All things in all ways. There is nothing else. 

Gatefold LP on 180 gram vinyl and available in 4 colours (black, purple/black, red and transparent yellow).  CD  version released on and promoted by Neurot Recordings.  Early 2014 UK/EU tour planned.

GRIEF

Band:GERM
Album:GRIEF
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

”Grief" is the band`s 3rd record and 2nd full-length in only 18 months and includes stunning guest appearance by Audrey Sylvain (Amesoeurs, Peste Noire), once again produced by LT and Tim Yatras. Germ, the solo band of Tim (Austere, Grey Waters, ex-Nazxul, ex-Woods of Desolation, etc), had always been lurking beneath the shadows of his other bands. That is until 2012, when Germ came bursting onto the scene with the debut album ‘Wish’, and follow up EP ‘Loss’. Already critics were praising the huge step forward compositionally between those two releases, and that now continues with ‘Grief’. At once another huge step forward for Germ, ‘Grief’ also takes a step back towards Tim’s Black Metal roots by placing more emphasis on guitar this time around. The album also features a stunning guest appearance by Audrey Sylvain (Amesoeurs, Peste Noire), as she lends her amazing voice to two songs. At 13 tracks, and over 69 minutes long, ‘Grief’ is another journey into Tim’s twisted mind, and definitely one not to be missed.

“Overall, “Grief” is one hell of a release that expands the band’s sound while keeping intact all the cool elements we love about Germ.” Infernal Masquerade mag 94 / 100

 

 

RIOT

Band:UK SUBS
Album:RIOT
Label:PHR RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

The UK SUBS 1997 masterpiece 'Riot' hits vinyl for the first time this November. This album was not the usual late '70's Punk band trying and failing to relive their past glories, far from it in fact ; read on...

"In honor of the U.K. SUBS' 20th anniversary, Nicky Garratt returned to the fold for Riot and Quintessentials, which were recorded simultaneously at San Francisco's Wally Sound. And he brought along 1981-1983 bassist Alvin Gibbs (from the band's two best LPs, Diminished Responsibility and Endangered Species) for the ride. Garratt and Gibbs had returned once before -- but it was a false start -- on the OK but flawed and inconsistent 1988 LP Killing Time. This time the reunited trio get it right, using Samiam drummer Dave Ayer in place of Steve Roberts. Like Quintessentials, Riot approaches the meaty, huge-sounding production of the final two Garratt/Gibbs LPs. The mix may not be quite as big on either, but Riot's "House of Cards," "Cyberjunk," and especially the title track are brimming with all the qualities that made the Subs one of the leaders of U.K. punk's second wave, along with the post-Brian James Damned, Ruts, Undertones, Angelic Upstarts, and Stiff Little Fingers. Fifteen straight songs may smack you in the face, but as in the best of all "original spark" punk, the playing level is so escalated it belies the apparent simplicity of the written chords. Garratt's right hand chops at the strings with style as well as authority, spitting fire at all the key junctures, blasting into choruses such as "Guilty Man" out of power-riffs so nasty and glorious, you understand how 10,000 punk bands in his absence never came close to matching this! And with such a formidable band to back him at last, the always-committed Harper gains stature and probity for his gutsy stands, such as when he spits "where's the human rights?" Riot is a real case of a band recovering all that was theirs, a near-impossible feat" - Jack Rabid - Big Takeover

The first time this has ever been available on Vinyl LP !

 

 

PERFUME AND PISS

Band:GBH
Album:PERFUME AND PISS
Label:PHR RECORDS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

There isn't a self-respecting gutter punk, hardcore kid or subcultural miscreant alive who hasn't seen the iconic GBH logo emblazoned on the back of a leather jacket, a denim vest, or a torn-up t-shirt, and after 30 years in the game, England’s original punks GBH are back to reclaim the streets with a brand new riotous release, "Perfume and Piss". Barnburning, fistpumping, palace-gates-storming tracks like "Kids Get Down," "Cadillac One" and "This is Not the Real World" carry the torch forward with the band's trademark fury that is nihilistic, optimistic, pessimistic, anarchistic, violent, humorous and deadly serious all at once. Get into the band that started it all!!

SHE`S COMING BACK TO ME

Band:THE THANES
Album:SHE`S COMING BACK TO ME
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:VINYL 7
Genre:Garage Punk

The Thanes: Lenny Helsing (vocals and guitar), Angus McPake (organ / 12-string guitar), Mike Goodwin (drums) and Mark Hunter (bass guitar and vocals) have long been ambassadors of sixties folk-punk and garage pop jangle, so it's not terribly surprising that their latest disc outing should reflect at least some of these distinct qualities.

They've chosen their own "She's Coming Back To Me", written by the group’s organist and twelve-string guitarist Angus McPake, to be the featured topside. Showing off some Blues Magoos-type moves, it’s naggingly melodic and is furnished with short jabs of fuzz across the chorus. Unexpectantly, it then veers off into a whirligig of jazz-spiked 12-string … and back again. The flip-side houses the group’s reading of "Love Is Fading Away", originally recorded by The Poets back in the autumn of 1965, but not released commercially until thirty years later. Although The Thanes’ version was recorded before the death, in August 2012, of Poets’ founder, lead singer and songwriter George Gallacher, it now serves as the group's poignant tribute to the memory of their great friend and musical compatriot – and a truly dynamic vocal presence!

These, then, are the latest waxings from The Thanes, fruits borne out of sessions undertaken in group member Angus McPake’s self-built "Ravencraig" studio complex deep in the heart of Edinburgh.

BLACKWOOD

Band:THE CASE
Album:BLACKWOOD
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Blackwood. The title alone is portentous, at the very least semi-evil sounding. Fear not, there are no devils, demons, or witches lurking in these woods. Instead we have a heretofore almost completely unknown and rarely spoken of album of nine original tracks, self-released on the legendary RPC Records label by a group of self-motivated teens from Pennsylvania. Luckily for lovers of musical mayhem, the Case got access to their school music room and a four-track recorder over a Christmas break in 1971. A rock-solid, harddriving rhythm section lays down the necessary underpinning for moody organ and beautifully-toned guitar. There is sheer joy at play here, a kind of rock 'n' roll exuberance—with ample raw talent and wicked riffing—which shines through on every cut. Terrific raw, primitive album, simultaneously loose and intense, like the Velvet Underground at their best. Color booklet includes notes by the band + rare photos. Limited to 500 copies.

 

 

POUR PAUWELLS

Band:GUY SKORNIK
Album:POUR PAUWELLS
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Reissue Limited to 500 copies. Digipack + 28-page booklet.

"If you have not heard of Guy Skornik you do not know what you've lost... but don't worry, it's never too late. Guy was brought to the public's attention for the first time in the beginning of 1970. Then it was the release in the middle of the year of a magnificent LP (on Pathé, of course!) I strongly recommend it to you as it is a masterpiece. He starts with a taste for surrealism and for all the strange things that have occurred over thousands of years on the earth’s surface; Skornik tried, and succeeded perfectly, to create with his music what Louis Pauwels did with his huge best-seller The Morning of the Magicians—a book that can be quickly defined as a popularization of many disturbing problems poorly understood by the general public, such as flying saucers, Atlantis, and Easter Island." —Jacques Allemand (Extra magazine)

 

 

MATEO SOLO BIEN SE LAME

Band:EDUARDO MATEO
Album:MATEO SOLO BIEN SE LAME
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

A record that requires many superlatives in order to do it justice: from it’s first moments, the music is lilting, poetic, intimate, in turns life-affirming and melancholic, with pulsating percussion backed by unheard-of guitar chords and tunings (perhaps the reason for the frequent Caetano Veloso comparisons); it is an album that sounds—simply put—honest. Released at the end of 1972 in both Argentina and Uruguay, it was received from that first moment as a classic.

"The most modern-sounding thing on the planet... almost like a new type of folk, like the acoustic version of bands like the Shins or Death Cab for Cutie. The songs are... embedded in indigenous, magical lore; utterly fresh and unique; it’s just straight-up futuristic." —Devendra Banhart

First time vinyl reissue of 1972 classic / 180 gram vinyl edition, limited to 500 copies worldwide

 

 

SETTING FORTH : DELUXE EDITION

Band:ODYSSEY
Album:SETTING FORTH : DELUXE EDITION
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Once upon a time, when the music business was more music than business (but only just), there was a lean, mean, and super tight band who created a quintessential dose of New York sixties psychedelia: one perfect album, loaded with heavy swirling organ, ferocious fuzz guitar, and powerhouse vocals. That band was Odyssey. Their album, “Setting Forth,” did not take them from support slots in their native Long Island to the major label heights of other local bands like Vanilla Fudge. But it is that same Odyssey “Setting Forth” album that is one of the greatest guitar-heavy psych records in the world, and as a result one of the most sought after (and expensive) psychedelic rarities ever pressed on wax. Now it has been painstakingly remastered, repackaged for this 2xCD deluxe edition, ready for true psych fans to devour.

This is truly one of the pinnacles of underground psychedelic music, recorded in 1969, released in an edition of fewer than 100 copies, and impossible to find as it only came in a plain white cardboard sleeve; an incredible, musically accomplished, hard rocking album of originals that jumps right out of the speakers and grabs you, from it’s opening In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida-esque riffs right to the grooving end. The 24-page booklet that accompanies this two-disc set has the complete band history by Odyssey leader Vinny Kusy, as well as rare photos from his own archive. Bonus tracks on disc one are three “basement recordings” from the “Setting Forth” era. The second disc contains Odyssey “Live at Levittown Memorial Auditorium: 1974,” a live recording that was never really meant to be, recorded by Odyssey’s sound engineer on a portable cassette recorder. It is the only document of Odyssey in their progressive rock phase, just before sometime Odyssey keyboardist Tom Doncourt and band-member Fred Callan recorded their legendary Cathedral “Stained Glass Stories” album.

2xCD packaged in a Stoughton tip-on gatefold mini-LP sleeve, with a 24-page booklet and an OBI, in a mylar outer sleeve

 

 

MICHAEL OOSTEN

Band:MICHAEL OOSTEN
Album:MICHAEL OOSTEN
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP
Genre:Psych/Folk

Michael Oosten took off towards the end of the 1960’s with a Martin guitar in tow, playing coffeehouses and clubs when he wasn’t spending three months living at 10,500 ft on the side of a mountain with his pet owl, backpacking the Rocky Mountains, the Cascades, or watching the night sky from hot springs. By the end of 1973, he was ready to record an LP—five psychedelic folk/rock tracks, ranging from the brightly smiling ‘Sunny Day’ to the epic ‘Hungry Horse Montana,’ where Oost switched seamlessly from Celtic picking to Middle Eastern chord progressions. Oosten filled out his folk/rock/psych sound with the help of a few friends: piano from Tom Hennick on ‘Hey Babe,’ vocals from Jan Reek on ‘Garden,’ and bass from Al Byla on ‘Sunny Day.’ Oosten's wayward vocals puts us in mind of other meandering faves from various eras (Incredible String Band, Perry Leopold, or the Meatpuppets, to name but three), and Oost proves himself a stellar guitarist in an eccentric and percussive mode. Columbia Records expressed interest in Oosten's music; but after a single meeting with the label, it was clear that the album would be too difficult for the mainstream honchos to market. Oost and friend Lester D'ore (editor of Chicago countercultural paper Seed and designer of the Yippie flag) holed up at D'ore's Wisconsin commune farm to silkscreen each LP jacket by hand. For our deluxe Lion Productions replica edition, they’ve done that again—we've used the original screens for this hand-screened, hand-assembled replica edition. The work of a renegade, ripe for rediscovery. Hand-screened jackets, using the original screens. 180 gram vinyl w/replica labels + four panel color insert. Sleeve notes by Michael Oosten. Limited to 500 hand-screened, hand-assembled copies, which come in a variety of colors. Collect them all!

180 gram pressing, in a heavy old 1960’s style “tip-on” jacket, with full-color insert, enclosed in a re-sealable Mylar bag. Limited to 500 copies worldwide.

 

 

THE PLASTIC CLOUD

Band:PLASTIC CLOUD
Album:THE PLASTIC CLOUD
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

In 1968, the Plastic Cloud recorded, quite simply, one of the greatest psychedelic albums ever made. This is a record with few equals, full of some of the trippiest, Eastern sounding fuzz guitar ever recorded. The album centerpiece, the ten-and-a-half-minute ‘You Don't Care,’ is an insane piece of social commentary that features brain shredding fuzz guitar as counterpoint to its extended pounding drum laden instrumental breaks, as it winds its way to a final freak out. Essential psychedelia! We feel that it’s about time this fine record got it’s due on disc, so we have gone all out: it is mastered from the original tapes; the 20-page booklet has the original LP text + lyrics for all of the songs (thanks to Don Brewer, the man who wrote them), photos, and a rare press release.

"Flying through the shadows of your mind, floating through the cosmos of time with some simply amazing, beautiful melodic Byrds-inspired psych, but also slamming you, driving a massive stake of FUZZ guitar right through your fuzz-addicted cranium with their harder numbers, they hit all the sweet spots. Anyone who digs fuzz-laden psych brain candy, as well as melodic, dreamy, trippy, trance-inducing sounds can’t go wrong with their self-titled masterpiece. " —Psych Trail Mix, #6

YEARS BEFORE THE WINE AND AGONISTES

Band:THIRD ESTATE
Album:YEARS BEFORE THE WINE AND AGONISTES
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Budget-priced double disc package includes a 28-page color booklet, with histories of both groups by band co-leader Robert Everett, as well as lyrics for all the songs included herein.

“The beauty with US private pressings, particularly those from the South (Baton Rouge in this case) is how dated they actually sound. Punk may have been taking off in New York and London, but this collective of musos were clearly hippies with their hearts in the ’60s. Years Before The Wine has the kind of electrified psychedelic folkrock sound that would have been all the rage in the UK in ’71! The gorgeous female vocal and blend of guitars on the title track are just sumptuous – making it incredibly hard to believe how the whole album was bounced down onto just four tracks! The second CD of earlier material from ’73, although more stripped down folk-rock and rock, is incredibly enjoyable too.” —Jon ‘Mojo’ Mills, Shindig! Magazine

Ltd Deluxe CD edition of this Acid Archives favorite includes extra disc of previously unreleased material

Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Swedish trio KONGH return with the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2007 debut album "Counting Heartbeats" which established the band as a force to be reckoned with.

Here's the vinyl repress of the first KONGH record (released in 2007 on TRUST NO ONE RECORDINGS).

VAMPYR.

Band:YEAR OF NO LIGHT
Album:VAMPYR.
Label:MUSIC FEAR SATAN
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Initially composed to be played as a live soundtrack (like at Roadburn Festival 2011 for example) on Carl Dreyer's "Vampyr" (film from 1932), this long musical piece was finally recorded in february 2012. The result is not a new YEAR OF NO LIGHT album but a long new track (72 minutes) with YEAR OF NO LIGHT classic heavy riffs mixed with more experimental and drone tunes that can remind us their collaborative records with NADJA or THISQUIETARMY. The record is a double vinyl including a CD version of the long track to listen to it in an one-time session.

Deluxe packaging including 2xLP + a CD version

For fans of NEUROSIS, BARONESS & MONO

 

 

TANK SJALV

Band:MAGNOLIA
Album:TANK SJALV
Label:Transubstans
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

4th album from Ronny and his MAGNOLIA. So where have they been ? Well, Ronny joined forces with MY BROTHER THE WIND for 2 albums. For those of us who heard MAGNOLIA before, it is heavy 70's based hardrock in the vein of NOVEMBER, but also CREAM. Supersharp lyrics, blending wah wah guitars and superheavy rhythm section. It cannot be said as best ever album ever by MAGNOLIA, as the previous 3 are already classics, and so will this one be as well !

 

 

WITH THEM YOU WALK ALONE

Band:CRYSTAL CARAVAN
Album:WITH THEM YOU WALK ALONE
Label:Transubstans
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

In the spring of 2013 The Crystal Caravan are planning their third release, With Them You Walk Alone. Right from day one, the band decides to, for the first time, just do it all themselves. With a certain amount of hybris given the band's guitarist and founders, Björn Lohmander and Stefan Bränberg, the responsibility as a sound engineers, producers and the mixing of the album. The level of ambition is higher than ever and the time to finalize the album is set by a good margin. Unlike the jammed and live recorded predecessor, Against the Rising Tide, the idea is to take the arrangements to a new level. During the work of With Them You Walk Alone, the band has gone from being a seven-piece band into a six-piece with a more distinct and a more guitarbased sound. A greater emphasis has also been placed on the work of mixing and soundscapes created by analog synthesizers, tape echoes and Leslie cabinets.

Highly recommended for friends of URIAH HEEP, STEPPENWOLF, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, but also acts like TSOOL and THE DOORS.

 

 

MOTHERS RUIN

Band:GIN LADY
Album:MOTHERS RUIN
Label:Transubstans
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

The world prog fans shed tears when BLACK BONZO anounced their demise back in 2009. Most of them got their revival when GIN LADY rose from the ashes of BLACK BONZO, containing most members of BLACK BONZO. GIN LADY released their self titled debut back in 2012, and the reviwes were far better than fabolous ! Taking a step back towards the classic rock sounds, but still maintaining the unique sound of BLACK BONZO, one could not ask for a better debut album. Keeping the productive interest of creating new music GIN LADY now strikes back, attacking in full scale ! Not giving us a ordinary 40 minute album, but a album, clocking in on more close to 70 minutes, we get the GIN LADY fever again !!

 

 

KAMA LOKA

Band:KAMA LOKA
Album:KAMA LOKA
Label:Transubstans
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

This fusion of Danish and Swedish musicians recorded an album of progressive folkrock at the legendary Silence studio. Complex songwriting, sparkling Hammond organ, fuzz guitar leads and some creative use of traditional instruments (fiddle, flute, hurdy gurdy) makes this album a must-have. Featuring among others Aron from ARON, Anders Groen from BABY WOODROSE and Tobias Petterson from SKL, hugely influenced by the likes of old Scandinavian progressive KEBNEKAJSE, ALRUNE ROD and ARBETE & FRITID. Beautiful and sensitive melodies, goose chilling guitar melodies, simply one of the best albums in this genre anno 2013.

Format:CD

Transubstans veterans OBLIVIOUS is back on track, this time with the stunning 8-tracker "Creating Meaning"! Bluesy, groovy hard rock with flowing bass lines and mysterious riffs that resembles the inventiveness of LED ZEPPELIN and SABBATH, but also acts like DOZER or CLUTCH. Since their 2009 debut "Goons And Masters", OBLIVIOUS has not lost the harshness of the tone in their sound. During these four years, they've rather built up a more solid wall of sound, with well-arranged riffs and conceived 70's grooves.

THE OTHER GODS

Band:SPACE MIRRORS
Album:THE OTHER GODS
Label:Transubstans
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

The new Space Mirrors album "The Other Gods" is the second in the "Cosmic Horror" series inspired by the stories of H.P. Lovecraft. It is a wonderful blend of dynamic space rock, prog metal and classic hard rock with influences not only from Hawkwind but also Blue Öyster Cult, Eloy and Black Sabbath! "The Other Gods" shows a further development in terms of sound and musicians' line-up with the recruitment of Claudio Tirincanti (Blaze Bayley, Tim "Ripper" Owens, etc.) to play all drums and Gabriel Monticello (Spaceseed, Albany Symphony Orchestra, etc.) to play bass on all songs. Sparky Simmons (Acid FM) recorded most of the guitars and Fabio Bartolini (Hate Profile) played guitars on one song. Martyr Lucifer delivered his best vocals' performance to date. Bless (Hortus Animae) recorded some wonderful piano. Cyndee Lee Rule provided a violin string section and Dr. James Hodkinson (Shadowlight, Pre-Med) played mellotron and moog. The legendary Nik Turner (Hawkwind's cofounder, Space Ritual, etc.) once more recorded sax and flute. Everything was done under the coordination of keyboardist Alisa Coral, the creator of Space Mirrors. Artwork and 12-page booklet were again created by Kevin Sommers. Space Mirrors again confirmed its international status by having in its ranks musicians from Italy, USA, UK and Russia!

If you ever wondered how the follow up album to "Highway To Hell" should sound like, look no further ! If Bon Scott would be alive, AC/DC would have delivered the album DYNAMITE is now blessing us with. It oozes of fat Angus Young riffs, and a Bon Scott alike voice, high energy classic rock style, easily compared with AC/DC, KROKUS and ROSE TATTOO, easily taking up the competition with new bands like AIRBORNE and BONAFIDE. This is also the band who got chased by the police force in Sweden after an imaginary bank robbery some folks thought was real ! This is already one of the best albums from Sweden 2013, no kiddin' !!

PLAYING FUNKY - THE LOST ALBUM

Band:PEE WEE BLUESGANG
Album:PLAYING FUNKY - THE LOST ALBUM
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

What has started 1977 as a Blues Coverband (at that time with the ZOFF‐singer Reiner Hänsch at piano and mic) nowadays is one of the eldest European bluesrock bands at all. In 1983 Drafi Deutscher, one of the biggest German pop stars ever, sat in the auditorium and was enthusiastic about the Pee Wee Bluesgang’s performance. Spontaneously Drafi offered the band to produce their next studio album, and in the summer of 1983 they all came together in the Tennessee studio in Hamburg to record this album. Unfortunately for the band just in that time Drafi’s comeback with "Guardian Angel" happened , which took him back into the charts. The recordings of the band proceeded haltingly, and Drafi’s efforts, to find a label for the album, fizzled. The Pee Wee Bluesgang decided to departe for concerts and went into another studio fo another record.. The "Lost Album" with Drafi disappeared in the archive and then eventually completely. It is due to Pee Wee‐singer Richard Hagel that a cassette copy was obtained from the recordings. This 30‐year‐old band was completely overhauled and restored by the mastering engineer Hans Detholf. We are happy to present this “Lost Album” after such a long time to the public. Three of the songs are performed by Drafi Deutscher himself, the album offers a wonderful mix of R & B, blues and rock. Just Playing funky. Once again a time document that remains preserved for posterity.

HIGHWAY TO HEALTH

Album:HIGHWAY TO HEALTH
Label:HEAD RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

The reason why no other band lets them use their gear is because the French duo beats the shit of what used to be called drums and guitars. I hear you coming with your Ligthning Bolt and Hella, so what? PNEU has a powerful melodic approach that will instantly appeal to both connoisseurs of the MUSIC and even kids making their way through teenage-hood. For the past three years, PNEU has toured a lot with some friends and by themselves. They recently made a quick stop to lay down the tracks to their second album in Salem (US) with Kurt Ballou from Converge. Godcity studios suit PNEU perfectly and the 9 tracks make one hell of a album, wonderfully agressive and extremely inventive, 'Highway to Health' is definitely the shut the fuck up record of the new decade. Behold, ladies and gentlemen'- …

NOCTURNAL

Band:NOCTURNAL
Album:NOCTURNAL
Label:GAPHALS
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Nocturnals self-titled debut album contains 8 tracks where the heavy blues riffage and the psychedelic jams are frequently crossing paths. The symbolism and the pessimistic view of their contemporaries are woven together and create messages of dark omen. The album was recorded by Joakim Kärling at Whitelight studio, in their hometown Linköping. A studio that also recorded the groundwork for the Ghost – Opus Eponymous. The common idea that surrounds Nocturnal was, and still is, to always pull the trigger to the click - a philosophy not uncommonly associated with the frolics and innovations of the late 60's/early 70's rock - which permeates their sound. All songs where written very close prior to their entry in the studio, this gives the album a reductive and honest feeling, as opposed to the usual overkill productions of our time. The album production has stripped the sound of their debut single "Until the morning light" and is instead developing a bit more peculiar sound which contributes to the establishing of their musical identity. 

For fans of classic rock as Led Zepplin and Deep Purple but from the same scene as Swedish bands as Graveyard, Spiders, Troubled Horse and Horisont...

TOWARDS ESCHATON

Band:CRAVEN IDOL
Album:TOWARDS ESCHATON
Label:DARK DESCENT
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Towards Eschaton, which features artwork by Paolo Girardi, represents the culmination of CRAVEN IDOL's dark visions to date. A coalescing of the band's new and older material results in a mercurial assault, but one whose constituent parts each read from the same bloodied hymn sheet. Thematically the album deals primarily with the rotten fabric of religion and the depraved notions birthed upon its gilded altars. Musically the record owes fealty to the maligned era in which black and death metal juddered into unlife, born dead in cemeteries haunted by relentless riffs and the screams of the hellbound. The beasts of Bathory, Possessed, Venom, Absu, Candlemass, Sarcofago, Belial, Manilla Road, Gospel Of The Horns, Mercyful Fate, Hobbs Angel Of Death, Inquisition, Samael and Autopsy have all left their mark on Towards Eschaton.
