With no doubt, the world is doomed to death ! Terrible, but we're the ones who present the soundtrack to the world's end.

ound Effect Records presents "Natt o Dag", Me and My Kites brand new studio album!
"Natt o Dag" is possibly the Swedish collective's best so far. Darker, moodier and filled with some irresistible pop-hooks, "Nat o Dag" is destined to become a modern psychedelic classic.
Me and My Kites is a Swedish hippie pop group, heavily influenced by the flourishing psychedelic movement of the sixties, with a touch of folk music. It’s a bit of a collective, with a solid core of eight people that has been the live band in the last years. Since the start in 2012 they’ve released two albums, this being the third one. Natt o Dag takes you on an adventure a bit darker than the earlier Me and My Kites’ records.
2 by bukowski was formed in 1997 in Thessaloniki, Greece. They have released material under many labels such as Liquefaction Empire (UK), Jonathon Whiskey (UK), Poeta Negra (GR), Inner Ear (GR) and others. Their albums with Poeta Negra are considered seminal material and still appear in lists of the best alternative Greek albums of all time.
True to 2 by bukowski’s pathological inability to be pinned down to a genre, Her Kind Fight Everything spans decades and genres - from ‘70s Kraut rock, to 80’s Ambient, to 90’s Doom and ‘00s Drone Rock. For those about to venture in dark, grandiose introspection, we salute you.
Founded in January 2019, Bend the Future is a progressive rock band based in Grenoble, France. Identified generally by their odd-time-scaled tunes, they incorporate elements of '70s prog rock, jazz, funk along with Eastern Europe music in their sound.
During the last days of summer in Little Big Studios, Grenoble, they recorded their debut album, Pendellösung.
Pendellösung tells the story of a hermit in a secluded forest who is a pilgrim in his own memories, memories which are recorded in his writings addressed to an unnamed loved one.
The album explores the concepts of isolation, yearning, confrontation, and awakening through extended-length tunes blended with inventive musicality and a wide range of emotional twists.
Australian heavy psychedelic space rockers, Comacozer return with their 2019 full length release titled 'Mydriasis. Since 2015, Comacozer has been unearthing instrumental meditative and journey taking passages and intense dark and murky acid filled jams.
'Mydriasis' is Comacozer's fourth full length release and consists of three epic journeys of hypnotic, liquid, spaced out jams, taking you on a cathartic trip into a nebula and will leave you floating through the other end of the universe. Perfect for psychonauts who want to space-travel and ultimately get crushed by the weight of asteroid. 'Mydriasis' is an album to both meditate to and conquer to. Ethereal psychedelic space in between celestial walls of fuzz.
Omega Ray (Ω-Ray), the new band of George Karanikolas (The Last Drive, Blackmail, BLML, Drobs): a blend of Acid-Rock, Folk & Greek poetry. Glorious anthems with a mesh of new Psych-Rock - a beast of their own creation.
A ferocious mix of NYC Avant-Rock style, late-'60s Acid bliss with some crunchy guitars, a Kraut Rock styled extremism and earthbound mysticism that ensures the listener experience a gnarled magma force they probably have never encountered before!
The music present on this disc is probably best described as a collision of shoegazing pop and Swedish counterculture psychedelia.
Imagine Träd, Gräs & Stenar or GOAT trying to sound like My Bloody Valentine at their peak. Think now of endless summer nights, infinite access to weed and a 24-7 flying carpet service and you get a glimpse of what is going on here.
Melody Fields spring out of Gothenburg and are thus the latest wonder from Sweden’s west coast music revolution. The music has been recorded at Studio Parkeringshuset where Hills, GOAT and The Movements have made their albums. Among the guest musicians are Holy Wave’s (US) Dustin Zozaya on mellotron and Nils Börén on saxophone.
The Dead Ends bring a fresh and punchy sound with the release of their second album, "Distant Shores".
The forthcoming album is a follow-up to their debut 2017 LP "Deeper the dark, the Brighter we shine" and is set for release in March 2019 on vinyl, CD and digital, via Sound-Effect Records.
Distant Shores was recorded in a DIY studio in Kavala, Greece; no fancy gear and all, but loads of experimentation.
The record is comprised of 10 tracks that vary in style, though, within The Dead Ends unique style, they create a vibrant soundscape for any psychedelic music lover.
"Bad Trip Exorcism", released in spring 2019, is the debut album of the German one-man band Crypt Witch. The creator of this idea - Eugen Kohl - is already known for his talent and versatility. His current projects include: Donarhall, Sinister Downfall, Death Carrier, Hexengrab, Nihilisticon, Urschmerz, Dark Fields and others.
This time Eugen showed his passion for stoner doom by creating instrumental and characteristic stoner compositions interwoven with heavy, fuzzy riffs, hypnotic motifs and melodic passages. Eugen completely avoids singing and gives each listener the opportunity to dive into the world of magic and perform their own "Bad Trip Exorcism".
Sleeping tree is not here to play games. On their self-titled debut album the three-man-band from southern Germany focuses on the essentials: hard riffs, straight basslines and hammering drums. The extended guitar solos make very clear which musical paths the band is following.
The spirit of early heavy rock hovers over this record. Nevertheless sometimes Sleeping Tree knows how to incorporate the soft tones - only to come back with a huge wall of fuzz. Lose yourself in the scenic lyrics and enjoy a dirty ride!
Sleeping Tree is a three-man stoner-/doom-formation from Augsburg, Germany.
Heavily influenced by groups like Black Sabbath, their music is heavily blues driven and inspired by classic stoner- and doom-rock, but never fails to incorporate a scenic, personal touch.
Drako Gigant is an experimental heavy musical constellation from Athens Greece, formed in 2017 under the concept of exploring heavy music combined with elements of sonic textures like early industrial, ambient, progressive rock, jazz and metal.
Improvisation has been the backbone of creating the soundscapes laid down, but not without carefully considering the impact each result might have, first upon the creators and then upon the listener.
The members, each coming from different genres and with different approach to how music works and is created, collide in a cauldron of ideas where explosive mixtures and intense dynamics meet and merge into strong bonds of a sound collage full of contradiction.
No boundaries, no walls, just pure music exploration!
