Konserva is the debut album of the Athens-based garage/post-punk rockers Μινέρβα (Minerva).
After their first EP "Βέλβετ/Mama Shoe", Konserva comes in light to complete a journey that started years ago in the tropical city of Korinthos by 3 childhood friends.
Konserva (Κονσέρβα in greek, which means tin can) indicates the city of Athens, and everything that it is included in its daily basis, like depression, anger, dirt, psychedelia as well as happiness and the need to party and feel loved. All the above are expressed in this album through up tempo beats, punchy bass lines, extremely reverberated rhythm guitars and fuzzy riffs as well as distorted and echoed vocals.
If there are three words that can fully describe Μινέρβα, these are: Garage, Moustache & Desire.
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present the rebirth of AEVANGELIST, Blessed Be the Relic of Wicked Slumber: Nightmarecatcher, on CD, vinyl and digital formats.
Ever restless, Blessed Be the Relic of Wicked Slumber: Nightmarecatcher sees Matron Thorn exploring an exquisitely lurking dread, patiently simmering his psychedelic death metal delirium to a hallucinogenic boil, bringing forth a miasmic meltdown. Daunting and daring to say the very least, Nightmarecatcher is one epic 53-minute composition comprising three equally epic chapters, all threaded together with unsettling ease. Also uniquely, the album is AEVANGELIST's first proper live studio recording, created entirely in the recording space of Oranssi Pazuzu and drums recorded in the recording space of Barathrum & Sielunvihollinen.
¡PENDEJO! is a four-piece heavy rock band from the Netherlands, founded by two cousins with a history in Latin America. Digging into their latino roots, El Pastuso and Jaap 'Monchito' Melman started blending heavy riffage, pounding drums, right-in-your-face lyrics in urban Spanish about the weirdest stories in life, and to top it all off, a screaming trumpet.
'Cantos a la Vida' (2010), the band's first full length album, was initially released in Spain and got stunningly positive reviews there.
Their music has been described as heavy, addictive, rough and grooving, or as a Spanish critic so eloquently put it: "Heavy rock in Spanish with balls the size of Danny de Vito".

Based in New Brunswick, Canada - ZAUM is a dark passage into the unspoken realization of the old world; a monolithic doomy mantra-based meditative experience forged by bass and drums interwoven with sitar, woodwind, string and synth textures resulting in a tranquil resonance whereby the astral and physical planes can co-exist and be understood from a natural perspective. Chapter II in the existence of ZAUM - "Eidolon", is an illuminated revelation of the ancient past with furthered lush and organic soundscapes as its vibrant artwork depicts. While concurrent with respect to the time period, Eidolon summons the mind into a lost world afar from the Middle Eastern deserts of debut album "Oracles".
