WINTERLAND

Band:THE JIGSAW SEEN
Album:WINTERLAND
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

Building on the success of their critically acclaimed, CMJ charting 2010 release Bananas Foster, The Jigsaw Seen return this autumn with the meticulously produced Winterland, a winter-themed song cycle showcasing the group’s conceptual take on the season. The tone is set for Winterland on the opening track What About Christmas? with pounding drums, fuzz bass, mellotron and a lyric cautiously anticipating the heightened emotions of the coming season. USA Today declared that the song “deserves to be part of the permanent seasonal repertoire.” The icy mellotron continues through the atmospheric piece that is December and the Massachusetts-via-Berlin groove of Snow Angels Of Pigtown, imbuing the snow angels with their own Chariots Of The Gods style mythology. A heavily reverb-soaked baritone guitar abruptly takes the proceedings into Woman Loves The Season, a song that recalls the chill-inducing ballads of Gene Clark. The twelve-string cracker Candy Cane, with its thunderous bass and drums, closes out the side with a wicked dash through a yuletide dystopia. Side two picks up with Circle Of Steel, a song that fits the Winterland concept so perfectly that you’d probably be surprised to discover it’s actually a Gordon Lightfoot song, originally appearing on his 1974 album Sundown. Christmas Behind Me sees the album’s narrator leaving the cold weather behind and taking off for a new start with some resignation. First Day Of The New Year attempts to resolve an uncertain future, as a somber organ weaves it’s way through a stately piano-driven arrangement. The listener is finally offered a release from the frigid setting with the soaring, optimistic Dreams Of Spring, a song that introduces a first for The Jigsaw Seen: a female choir at the outro to bring the penultimate track home. The album closes with Winterland’s Gone, one of the most beautiful songs The Jigsaw Seen have recorded, showcasing a delicate mix of acoustic guitars, flute and bass clarinet. The song looks back on the season with a nostalgic eye and gracefully sums up the climate of Winterland.

Among Winterland’s many highlights is a guest appearance by rock icon Dave Davies of The Kinks, lending his vocal talents to the band’s version of Gordon Lightfoot’s Circle Of Steel.

“The Jigsaw Seen plough a gloriously arranged and sumptuously produced furrow, a swoon-filled noise to stave off winter blues.” THE LONDON EVENING STANDARD

BLOOD LUST

Band:UNCLE ACID AND THE DEADBEATS
Album:BLOOD LUST
Label:SVART / KILLER CANDY
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

BACK AT LAST WITH A LIMITED REPRESS THIS MUCH SOUGHT AFTER SECOND ALBUM ! VINYL CHANGING HANDS FOR £500 - DON’T MISS OUT!

Formed in the old wastelands of witchery and paranoia, Cambridgeshire band Uncle Acid and the deadbeats deliver the new sound of 60's terror. This popular beat combo crawled from its secluded hideout in 2009 to record their debut album, 'Vol. 1' for Killer Candy Records. With a limited release in 2010, the album was warmly received with the track 'Witches Garden' appearing on a Classic Rock Magazine cover CD. The band also drew the attention of Leif Edling from legendary doom band Candlemass, who would later recommend them to Lee Dorrian at Rise Above.

The group's second album Blood Lust (2011) was recorded in a dilapidated barn known as The Slaughter House. Using old fuzz pedals and broken amps to create a lo fi saturated sound, the entire album was laid to rest on tape in the space of four cold months. Blood Lust tells the story of a drug crazed sadist who embarks on a witchfinding killing spree before meeting his own demise at the withered hands of Satan. The bands intention was to create an audio equivalent of a 60's exploitation horror film. After a steady start in sales, demand for the album eventually grew beyond all expectations with all pressings quickly selling out, including a Rise Above vinyl pressing of 350 which sold out in just 24 hours.

 

 

FREERMASONRY

Band:WOLD
Album:FREERMASONRY
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Canada’s most notorious and most alien extreme musical act WOLD (who have somewhat recently been admired by confessed fans such as Bjork and Matthew Barney) have returned with their most aesthetically powerful release to date. Entitled “Freermasonry”, the new album from the weird, bizarre, and mysterious enigma that hail from the vast desolate prairies of the Canadian wasteland is the band’s most aesthetically powerful to date. Like a raging powerful blizzard that envelopes nothing but darkness and death, the harsh sounds of psychotic hypnosis emanating from “Freermasonry” are almost akin to a haunting alien presence that’s slowly waiting to reveal its true nature upon the feeble mortal coil.

Lyrically, “Freermasonry” presentes WOLD’s deepest and most-thought provoking prose yet; an intriguing and indepth look into WOLD dictator Fortress Crookedjaw’s thesis on religious metaphor and the occult leanings of the S.O.L.

Always polarizing, yet always intriguing, “Freermasonry” is the observation where WOLD take no prisoners and could very well be the most uncompromising WOLD release to date.

 

 

THE ROOTS OF DUBSTEP

Band:MAD PROFESSOR
Album:THE ROOTS OF DUBSTEP
Label:ARIWA
Format:CD
Genre:Reggae/Dub/Ska

Heavy bass lines, solid drums, floating keyboards, flying guitars!!! Clearly this is where the current crop of producers coined the name DUBSTEP for their brand of music Like many musical styles before, and like Christopher Columbus, the discovery is made, whilst looking for something else! There is nothing new about Dubstep. 40 years ago, King Tubbys was experimenting with the then audio technology (1/2 inch ampex machines), and customised MCI desks, tape echoes and spring reverbs. This led to a new era of music...DUB!! And for the first time, the creator was from behind the desk. Amongst the first generation of this musical form was, Lee Perry, Errol Thompson, King Jammys. They inspired the next generation like Scientist and Mad Professor...

The Roots of Dubstep is a new album, using old technology, with 4 old songs, using new technology. Highly enjoyable when sober, it will take you somewhere else, when high!! Strictly Roots!!!

Band:NICK MOSS
Album:HERE I AM
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

Nick Moss follows his most critically and commercially successful album to date (Privileged) with the release of Here I Am, a record already drawing raves from peers and mentors like renowned bluesman Jimmy Thackery, who has praised this new set for "pushing the evolution of his music" with tunes that are "genuine and intense."

These 10 new originals combine to create the most diverse album of his career as he pushes his sound, songwriting, and lead guitar work further than ever before.

HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?

Band:T.H. WHITE
Album:HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Dance/Electronica

One of NYC’s truest artist and producers, T.H. White emerges with his fourth full length release How Bad do you Want it!? White’s sound interlaces his influences of golden era Hip-Hop, psychedelic 70’s funk rock as well as lush lounge beats. Critics and fans often relate to his unique blending of ultra-modern production infused with his own organic instrumentation.

“White is one of the few beat makers that can lay claim to being a musician first and DJ-Producer by default. Sprinklings of enough genres to satisfy a wide range of music fans.” - Paper Magazine

“This album is brimming with slinky rhythms, low end rumbles and lots of shimmering sheen!” - Time Out

"With such clever and eclectic touches, this throbbing electro-pop shows a gift for titillating, slinky melodies from the club to the breakfast table. White’s got the skills and the songs are energectic.” - Spin

 

 

COBOL

Band:PAOLO APOLLO NEGRI
Album:COBOL
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

Echoes of Tangerine Dream, Lalo Schifrin, Deep Purple, John Barry, Jean-Michel Jarre, Italian Cinema, Gene Krupa, 70’s Library Music, Herbie Hancock are but a few of the memories “COBOL” will evoke…but it’s much more than that.

"20 years ago I cut brilliant code in a tiny office cubical to the sounds of ZTT Records, Yello, and The James Taylor Quartet, so when Apollo suggested fusing his funk-soul-jazz-rock style with early 80s electronic new wave and the inspired elegance and beauty of the preeminent computer language how could I say anything but “Yes!”?

“COBOL” is the final part of an epic trilogy that begins with the youth’s ambition of “A Bigger Tomorrow” (2007), expands with the master’s control of “The Great Anything” (2010), and evolves into the artist’s unfiltered vision: a perfectly synthesized elixir of Lost Continent meets Dirty Harry meets Futureworld.

NOW

Band:KIM JUNG MI
Album:NOW
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

At the dawn of the 1970’s, South Korea’s rock music scene was at its zenith. Much of the reason for this was the god-like musical touch of guitar wizard, songwriter, producer, and arranger Shin Joong Hyun. For this album, he took a young girl named Kim Jung Mi, and transformed her from a wallflower student into a folk-psych chanteuse in record time (if Francoise Hardy is the Marianne Faithful of France, then Kim Jung Mi is, I suppose, the Francoise Hardy of Korea). The ten songs on Now were written and recorded during 1973 with a firm mandate to create a truly psychedelic sound experience. On each number, Shin Joong Hyun and his backing group laid down pure emotion on tape. Mr. Shin’s fuzz guitar weaves in and out of the tracks, interlaced with his own poetic musings on nature (spring, sun, flowers, rain, and wind), all else in the world apart from Kim Jung Mi’s soothing voice and insistent bass that crouches and creeps, depending on its mood, displaced. This raw feeling, combined with Kim Jung Mi’s seductive, expressive vocals and empathetic string orchestration, resulted in an album that is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Mr. Shin’s ethereal cover photo—the blue graininess of the sky dripping into fading clouds, with Kim Jung Mi surrounded on her sky-high isolated mountaintop by flowers—is the perfect image to represent what is, without a doubt, one of the best psychedelic albums ever created. Our version of this quintessence of psychedelia features Korean/English lyric translations, rare photos, re-mastered audio, and comprehensive liner notes by Kevin “Sipreano” Howes and Shin Joong Hyun expert Jae-Myeong Ro (director of the Korean Classical Music Record Museum, and author of the book Shin Joong Hyun and Beautiful Country.

The deluxe mini-LP sleeve CD version has a 20-page booklet with rare photos, and great stories about Shin Joong Hyun and Kim Jung Mi’s continuing place of prominence in the Korean music scene.

 

 

REFUGE.

Band:HEAVEN AND EARTH
Album:REFUGE.
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

This reissue has been a long time coming, in no small part because we wanted it to be perfect. We’re happy to finally be able to announce the re-release of this psychedelic folk/funk beauty from 1973, featuring the gorgeous voices of Pat Gefell and Jo D. Andrews (and produced by Space Age percussionist/composer Dick Schory for his short-lived but influential Ovation Records imprint). At one time this was an album completely unknown outside of Chicago, where the label was based; but these days, word gets around, and tracks like 'Feel The Spirit' and 'Jenny' have been making the rounds on the DJ circuit. No matter what your musical taste is—psych-folk, funk, soft rock—this LP seems to have something special to offer. This is due in part to notable backing from veterans like bassist Phil Upchurch (Curtis Mayfield, Otis Rush, Stan Getz, Groove Holmes, and Cannonball Adderly), and space age pop maven Bobby Christian on drums and percussion. But primarily, the perfection that this album emanates is due to the clear voices and intelligent songs crafted by Gefell and Andrews. Our Lion Productions deluxe gatefold mini-LP sleeve CD version has two booklets—one packed with rare photos from the Ovation Records archives; the other with musings by both members of the group on their time spent as Heaven & Earth. Better yet, the CD version has fifteen bonus tracks, including both sides of the duo’s two singles, as well as alternate takes and some never before released songs plucked from the vaults. Now here’s the sad news: the CD version is limited to 1,000 copies. Order now!

 

 

CAN YOU MEND A SILVER THREAD

Band:SANDSTONE
Album:CAN YOU MEND A SILVER THREAD
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

There is nothing ordinary about Sandstone. This private press folk/psych album (1971) is so head and shoulders above almost every other album in the genre, it's hard to believe it's not better known. The instrumentation and compositional style are reminiscent of heavy English folk hitters like Mellow Candle, Pentangle, and Heron. The Sandstone album was not a major label production like those records. But the local studio at which it was recorded must have been quite high end, because the production quality is astounding. Nearly everyone involved in these recordings was younger than eighteen, but there’s very little evidence of that: the music is well constructed, and no aspect of it is without sophistication well beyond the years of its creators. The three teens behind this music (David Sheirer, Laurie Braunstein, and Mario Grella) molded a seamless compound of British trad-folk with themes of American antiquity, from pilgrims’ progress to Civil War tragedies to the tainting of their unspoiled valley. Poetic lyrics, haunting female vocals, and judicious use of string sections, all serve Sandstone’s entirely original compositions: the result is a dreamy, wistful mood that calls to you across the decades. After weeks of recording, overdubs, and mixing, the album was sent off to be manufactured. Sadly, the band only had cash enough for around 300 copies. Other than a few college radio spins for “Flute Player”, barely anyone heard Can You Mend A Silver Thread? outside of their inner circle. A monumental accomplishment nonetheless! From the cover to the instrumentation to the deeply strange and lovely lyrics, maybe the truest folk/psych music that these shores ever produced.

Our Lion Productions edition (courtesy of Numero Group) includes two bonus tracks, out-takes from the album sessions. Booklet has the band’s story and lyrics and is printed on FSC recycled, chlorine-free, 100% postconsumer fiber paper, manufactured using biogas energy.

Four years after their last LP „Public Disorder“ REJECTED YOUTH finally made their fourth LP „Fuck The Consent“. Founded in 1998 REJECTED YOUTH from Nuremberg / Germany RY have become one of the most established punk institutions over the years. After 3 LPs, one Live DVD, several singles and one mini album the four guys proved at numerous = festivals, tours and shows through Europe and the US that political punk rock is more important than ever. Although they stick to their musical genre and roots they remain open minded regarding new influences and styles. Their new album is partly a bit more rocking but also contains this typical melodic streetpunk, ‘77 punk and some piano parts. Regarding their lyrics the Rejects keep on dealing with lots of critical issues. Among scene-relevant issues like „Gray Zone“, Nazi murders or Anti-Antifa they also address other topics like gentrification, corporate social responsibility or selfexploitation, just to name a few. „Fuck The Consent“ is a consequent development and proves in an impressive manner that hymn-like, political punk rock is timelessly modern and therefore certifies REJECTED YOUTH to be one of the most important bands in this genre!

AND NOW THIS

Band:NO PROBLEM
Album:AND NOW THIS
Label:Deranged
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Debut full length from Canada’s NO PROBLEM is an absolute hardcore punk scorcher. With two great 7”s in 2010- 2011, this album showcases a band at ease with their ‘sound’ - blending hardcore and punk with plenty of big riffs and melodies, not unlike Fucked Up’s pre Matador days. Consistent with their earlier recordings, AND NOW THIS is essentially a hardcore record with melodic punk sensibilities similar to the ADOLESCENTS and the OBSERVERS. Featuring Graeme from the Wednesday Night Heroes and recorded by Jonah Falco from Fucked Up.

North American pressing of their superb Impending Doom 7”. Someone described the music as “Loud, dark, therapeutic, and rough around the edges”, and Anton once said he played “black angst-ridden power pop.” Both quotes sum up Terrible Feelings pretty well.

LE FREAK LIVE

Band:CHIC
Album:LE FREAK LIVE
Label:SIREENA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Soul/Funk/Disco

In 1976 the studio musicians Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards got together and founded CHIC. Inspired by the style of Roxy Music and impressed by Frank Farian's Boney M. they brought a completely new color in the young and fresh 70s disco culture. Elegant, sweaty and dancable. Like no other band before Rodgers and Edwards (supported by a variable number of singers) knew ,to transform rock, funk and disco into a bubbling brew and to come over elegant and cool. After the success of "Dance, Dance, Dance" and "Good Times" in early 1978, the worldwide hit "Le Freak" appeared - today's most successful single of her label Warner Music.

In 1996, the band filmed a full concert at the legendary Budokan in Tokyo for a DVD release, while they were supported by the ex-Guns n 'Roses guitarist Slash, the vocal group SISTER SLEDGE and Brit rock legend Stevie Winwood. His participation in the Hendrix cover of "Stone Free" is without any doubt one of the highlights of this record. Incidentally, this title is not on the DVD. The concert at the Budokan, incidentally, was the last one of Bernard Edwards, Nile Rodgers’ long-time companion died shortly after the appearance of cancer.

As usual on Sireena this record appears 180 gram heavy vinyl - in an elaborately designed gatefold sleeve.

About Element of Crime we don't need to lose many words. Sven Regener and his men belong to the most successful German bands for years. For this record they spent their version of Arlo Guthrie's classic "Motorcycle Song". On the backside you'll find a song of the "most unusual German duo" (Musik Express) The Perc Meets The Hidden Gentleman. Excellent. Tom "The Perc" Redecker and Emilio "The Hidden Gentleman" Winschetti spent the psycho-folk song "Man-I-Toba". This fits!

THIRTY THREE

Band:RED SQUARE
Album:THIRTY THREE
Label:FMR
Format:CD
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

The release of Thirty Three documents the music of Red Square, a remarkable, pioneering British group that originally formed in 1972 and broke up in 1978, before re- forming in 2009 as a result of renewed interest in their extraordinary history. Though largely forgotten for 30 years, Red Square was a key link bridging the worlds of psychedelic rock and avant-jazz. There was an almost proto-punk quixotism about their railing aural assaults on the mainstream: very few people thanked them for it, and the music on Thirty Three was considered too extreme for release at the time.

‘A focused free-for-all - heavy rock with the safety catch off - that anticipates the music of MASS, Gary Smith, Scorch Trio and Konk Pack, three decades later.’ - WIRE MAGAZINE

EXTRA BULL

Band:DESERT PLANET
Album:EXTRA BULL
Label:9PM RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

10 years of Desert Planet. 10 years of three guys from northern Lapland being the spearhead of Scandinavia's electronic music scene deserve finally an album with all those smashing tracks that are either sold out since years or have been released only on the internet. Particularly their early works which claimed the band's fame in the gamescore scene and internet community haven't been available before on physical sound carrier. A wonderful "best-of" compilation featuring their biggest web hits and tracks which haven't been available for years. Over an hour of quirky bit pop anthems. Their third album on 9pm Records comes in digipack with a marvellous booklet.

 

 

MOONROCKS

Band:DESERT PLANET
Album:MOONROCKS
Label:9PM RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

"Moonrocks“ is the second album of Finland's internationally acclaimed pioneers of bit-pop and 8-bit music inspired pop music, Desert Planet. An album that that has got everything to earn those guys from Lapland their long deserved bigger success. On this one they manage in a both sensitive and clever way to expand their chiptunes-horizon with new and more accessible aspects. Amidst the happy gameconsole-esthetics you will hear surprisingly sinister technoid beat-attacks plus a lot more moments of danceable, electronic pop-music. Though they still don't deny their 8-Bit roots there is now a remarkable complexity in their compositions. This is not anymore just a cheerful pixel-paradise, there is new depth in their tunes. Though experimenting more with song-structures they still manage to stick to their so typical and unique sound that earned them over the years such a huge following in the micromusic/chiptunes-community. An awesome album with a terrific final track: a cover of Vangelis' "Bladerunner“-Theme.

 

 

WE SHALL NOT FLAG

Band:GEOFF BERNER
Album:WE SHALL NOT FLAG
Label:9PM RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

After years of being sold out Geoff Berner's first full length album is available again as a special edition on 9pm Records! The whole „We Shall Not Flag Or Fail...“-album plus as bonus the complete „Light Enough To Travel“ ep on top. Berner, selfproclaimed "Whiskey Rabbi" and boisterous reformer of Klezmer music from Vancouver, Canada is simply one of the sharpest songwriters on the world music circuit. And he truly leaves an imprint. Quite a huge number of singer/songwriters from (mainly) Canada recorded coverversions of Berner's songs. Some of them with quite big success. Best known probably the Be Good Tanya's version of „Light Enough To Travel“. This album is as much punk as it is folk as it is klezmer. With it's dismissive attitude this album's brushing off the dust and gives back street attitude to Klezmer music. A terrific album.

 

 

DEATH POP

Band:KAROSHI LOVERS
Album:DEATH POP
Label:9PM RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

With their debut album the Karoshi Lovers from Helsinki/FIN rocketed themselves from zero to one of the most appreciated acts of the Finnish indie-scene. A threepiece performing in a quite unusual line-up (drums, piano, guitar), fronted by female singer/pianoplayer Ms Stress, managed already then to combine catchy pop-melodies with a remarkable dark element and a theatrical stage-appearance. Now for their second album „Death Pop“ they sharpened their sound adding more rocking elements that so far were mostly a trademark of their live-shows. A smart move. The songs on „Death Pop“ are a simply brillant blend of hard rocking guitars, bubblegum melodies, gloomy atmosphere and danceable beats, held together by singer Ms Stress' vocal presence. There is not to many bands this can be compared with. One might find elements of early Blondie or some bits of PJ Harvey all with a touch of 80s pop in there but at the end of the day it's an all original thing this nordic pop-outfit delivers.

 

 

ANGELGOLD PIKES JAW

Band:MAEKKELAES TRASH
Album:ANGELGOLD PIKES JAW
Label:9PM RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

The debut full length of Maekkelae's Trash Lounge, Papua New Guinea born singer/songwriter/lofi-popster with Finnish roots. After years of constantly touring Europe Maekkelae delivered this both fragile and intimate collection of lofi flavoured underground pop tunes titled "Angelgold Pike's Jaw". An exciting journey through the artist's microcosm. Inspired material of unique make unpretentiously sauntering along the fringe of storyteller tradition, lofi-pop and intense/personal songwriting. Noise-loops, fragile (electric-) guitarworks, mandolin, piano, oldfashioned synth-sounds and assorted minimal electronica combined in a charming way made „Angelgold Pike’s Jaw“ a one of a kind full length debut of an unconventional European artist. An album never losing track of a certain unreal, dreamy mood. Guesting on this album is Michael Anderson aka. [drekka] of America’s reknown label for lofi/folk oddities bluesanct records.

“…Warped blues, electronics and country-tinged soundscapes…” Time Out, UK

 

 

FROM THE END

Band:EDENIAL
Album:FROM THE END
Label:Ravenheart
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Edenial is a hot new Chile band fronted by the alluring Francisca Lastra, with the album coming in both English and Spanish versions. Here we have the English version. Their style is a more prog metal, but no less catchy, kinda Lacuna Coil/We Are The Fallen featuring the highly skilled fretwork of Gerardo Ihle. Singer Francisca has a powerful expressive voice that cuts through the raging riffage and thunderous production, ensuring that there is always a good tune at the heart of the music.

Sound, and skilled song writing lifts them out of the quagmire of alt-rock/metal bands, this is an album that should go down a storm with alt/gothic/prog metal fans alike.

NEW BIRTH

Band:MASS
Album:NEW BIRTH
Label:Retroactive
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Originally released on cassette and vinyl in 1985 on RCA Records, this album was nearly impossible to find through the 1990's up until 2007 when the Nevada based secular metal reissues label Retrospect Records finally put out a CD reissue. While legions of fans were thrilled to have this metal classic available on CD for the first time, the 2007 reissue featured significant packaging and mastering issues that left fans frustrated that it did not reflect the magnificence and perfection of the music on the album. So in 2011, the Iowa based Christian label, Retroactive Records has reissued this heavy metal gem with impeccable packaging faithful to the original vinyl release (6 panel digipak with lyrics and a special message from vocalist Louis St. August). Retroactive and the band also went to great lengths to have the album mastered from the original tapes for the first time ever, opting for the magic of the ten original tracks and leaving off the poorly recorded bonus track from the 2007 reissue. New Birth (Anniversary Remasters Edition) ensures this album has never sounded so clear, so powerful, and so pristine giving the reissue the audio perfection it deserves - for the first time ever. Musically, New Birth is one of the heaviest Mass albums. NoLifeTilMetal music critics describe the album as “…100% heavy metal.” There is a slight pop influence that runs throughout, but it's more in line with bands like Kiss, Starz or Sweet. Vocalist Louis St. August has a high, soaring vocal style that is perfect for this style of melodic heavy metal. "Do You Love Me" was the single for the album, even getting them some play on MTV. However, it's the heavier material like the title track, "Too Far Gone" and "Crying Alone" that feature smokin' guitar work, pounding drums and plenty of aggression. For fans of Kiss, Quiet Riot, Stryper, Whitecross, and Barren Cross!

 

 

VINDICATION

Band:DAGON
Album:VINDICATION
Label:Bombworks
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Taking the band name from a short story by H.P. Lovecraft and a lyrical story telling style akin to Metallica Ride The Lightning era you can see why DAGON has become a Bombworks Records fan favorite with super heavyweight status firmly in the back pocket! The Midwest has always been home of true heavy metal and that is exactly where this Michigam based band takes their inspiration with their fourth album, and second EP, Vindication. You can clearly hear the galloping guitars along the lines of Iced Earth and classic Iron Maiden, hailing allegiance to powerful traditional metal. The Ocean themed lyrics have more in common with the storytelling of bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Novembers Doom, Empyrean Sky, Tourniquet, and Iced Earth. Vindication is everything Dagon is known for – metal that is brutal and crushing, yet, very catchy. It’s a perfect mixture of thrash and death riffs with excellent vocals.

 

 

EXHUMED

Band:GRAVE ROBBER
Album:EXHUMED
Label:BRUTAL PLANET
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The horror punk band Grave Robber recently released their newest CD Exhumed. While their name alone conjures up dark images of musicians dressed in zombie costumes that look like something from a B horror movie, if you peel away the costumes and the over the top stage show what you have left is a collection of good, fun to listen to punk tunes. Musically, this disc is a series of well-crafted tunes with influences ranging from the Ramones and Danzig to Gwar and the Misfits. The tracks are extremely hook-laden and catchy and in no time at all you will find yourself singing along to tunes with titles such as "I Wanna Kill You Over And Over Again," and "Bloodbath."

RIYL - Misfits, Alice Cooper, Type O Negative, Danzig, Black Sabbath, Wednesday 13, Rob Zombie, and Gwar.

HYMNES DE LA MONTAGNE NOIRE

Band:NEIGE AND NOIRCEUR
Album:HYMNES DE LA MONTAGNE NOIRE
Label:SEPULCHRAL
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Hymnes de la Montagne Noire sees Neige et Noirceur’s mastermind Spiritus return with what is, without a doubt, his darkest and most aggressive effort to date. Largely forsaking the ambient side that made up a good part of the outfit’s previous offerings in favour of more guitardriven songs, the opus nonetheless offers the same eerie vibe fans of the band have come to expect over the years. A suffocating journey into cold and desolate landscapes.

Raw, Hypnotic Black Metal that will appeal to fans of Paysage d’Hiver, Vinterriket and the likes.
