A true four-piece, Portland, Oregon's Ape Machine has been called "a rock and roll band with a finger on the pulse of the 70's and their asses firmly in the present" and "real heavy-psych for the iPhone generation" that delivers "true guts and glory rock and roll." Combining psychedelic, classic and progressive rock with arena-worthy metal, bluesy stoner-rock and catchy riffs in odd signatures, Ape Machine's music carries an organic depth and warmth rarely heard since the time of rock's glorious early years (or your Dad's bad ass record collection) infused with an exceptional modern sensibility.
The fourth full length of this incredible band. With dirt-caked fuzz tone, they continue to proliferate the catchy hooks and stoner vibes, Hawkdope is their masterpiece, 9 songs full of wall of fuzz to destroy your ears. Black Rainbows stewed up their best blend of driving riffs and Nebula-style heavy psychedelia on Hawkdope - is a perfect mix of Hawkwind/Monster Magnet/Fu Manchu! Three coloured versions limited in violet, ultra limited in splatter and regular in golden viyl, plus cd version
The Italian psych-fuzz trio Black Rainbows sound like the bastard offspring of 70's hard-rock swagger and 90's stoner-groove; hints of Black Sabbath, MC5 and Hawkwind fuse with liberal pinches of Monster Magnet and Fu Manchu. Since 2007 the band have released three full-length albums, coupled with split releases with bands such as White Hills, Naam and Farflung, and finally the recently highly acclaimed Holy Moon Ep. They have also been regulars on stages across the world having now performed over 300 gigs.
A surreal and alienating combination of very slow Hawaiian lap-steel scores and elephantine sludge/doom riffs with compelling blues shades. It's as if Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath were jamming with Earth and Sleep on a Hawaiian beach at sunset.
Limited edition 300 copies.
The french duo comes back with a new album, Modern Rituals, plunging deeper into the urban blend of noise and sludge already settled on their previous release, Ville Morgue.
This new record expresses all their skepticism and unease towards a society where sarcasm and mediocrity became criterias of appreciation if not values to be defended at all cost. A society that constantly and repeatedly broadcasts its own decay, drowning masses in a sea of ignorance and ready-made reflections.
Modern Rituals marks on a new step in Carne’s methodical research of more darkness, loudness and sombre psychedelism.
Denver's cantankerous trio return bringing their sophomore release "Dimension 303". Following-up to the band's vicious trademark sonic assault, the album lays to waste eighteen intense, kick-to-the-face hypergrind bursts of relentless auditory damage.

After years of angst-ridden anticipation from a ravenous fanbase, Denver's grindcore gargantuans CATHETER unleash their first full-length album since 2005.
The follow-up to Dimension 303", amidst an incredible arsenal of split releases, EPs and demos over the years, CATHETER's new opus is so obliteratingly heavy that upon first listen you'll quickly forgive them for the delay since the last album, and immediately tear your own head off in utter joy.
As always appropriately entitled, "Southwest Doom Violence" surges with CATHETER's pissed-off style, an immediate adrenaline-booster for fans of classic, ripping grindcore in the tradition of REPULSION, TERRORIZER, PHOBIA, early NAPALM DEATH, with crust and doom metal infiltrating the mix.

We’re proud to be releasing our first tape ever under the banner of international Stoner Rock with two previously unreleased tracks from Canadian boogie facepunchers Chron Goblin and Italian riffalicious gang Isaak.
Those who know each band’s signature sound will not be disappointed, both tracks are sheer energy, pairing melody with groove and distortion for a fresh interpretation of heavy music. Artwork by SoloMacello
