- Genre: Doom Metal
Paradise Lost formed in Halifax, West Yorkshire in 1988 & are known for being the founders of the Gothic Death/Doom Metal genre; a style fully brought into existence with their genre-defining second album, the highly influential Gothic.
Lost Paradise was the band's debut album, released in 1990 & one of the early highlights in the formative years of Peaceville. Featuring more death metal influences, Paradise Lost created a dark & atmospheric style of brutal death metal, as opposed to one based on speed. The album was recorded at Academy Studios (My Dying Bride, Anathema, Cradle of Filth) in Yorkshire, England.
This edition of Lost Paradise is available on 180gm black vinyl.
Released in 1998, 'Alternative 4', Anathema's fourth studio album, quickly became the band's best-selling and most highly regarded release to date.
Containing evocative atmospheric passages and emotional Rock anthems, Alternative 4 represented a giant progression from the band's previous work and hinted at the massive changes to come.
Displaying a more mature sound than the band's earlier recordings, this is the album that gave birth to the more conceptual approach, that the band took further on such albums as a 'A Fine Day To Exit' and 'A Natural Disaster'.
Limited heavyweight 180gm vinyl edition.
Katatonia was formed in 1991 by Anders Nyström and Jonas Renkse.
Their debut album, Dance of December Souls, was released in 1993, gaining the band recognition for their eclectic brand of gothic doom/death metal & joining acts such as Paradise Lot & My Dying Bride as one of the genre's defining bands.
Originally released in 1996, second album Brave Murder Day is a true classic. The primitive structures and melodies give this album an unparalleled trance-like quality, by taking an early Paradise Lost influence and forming a completely unique sound and atmosphere. The majority of the vocal duties were carried out in his signature death-growl style by Mikael Åkerfeldt, while Jonas Renkse delivered the clean vocal passages, that he is known for today, on the ethereal track, Day.
With a king-sized sound as gargantuan as the towering monster from which their moniker is derived, Bongzilla light up the modern-day rock world with Amerijuanican.
Blending industrial-sized, vertigo-inducing riffs with a sludgy, fuzzy crunch and hedonistic, yet harassed message, the single-minded quartet burn with a bad ass bent reserved for rock and roll titans.
A celebration of a decade of dealing medicinal music, Bongzilla's Amerijuanican will leave you in a smoky trance.

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.
Elevators to the Grateful Sky are back with their third fiery full-length album. 'Nude' showcases an extremely focused sound where early 90's Seattle-Sub Pop vibes melt with seducing psychedelic sections, heavy riffage and dreamy, sun-burnt instrumentals. Mastered at famed Mammoth Sound Mastering studio by Dan Randall (Iron Reagan, Noothgrush, The Walking Dead OST and countless others) and decorated by carefully hand-drawn imagery by vocalist Sandro Di Girolamo, the album comes in both coloured and black vinyl versions for the first time ever on Sound Effect Records.
"Spaceslug is legit! These guys are heavy retro rockers. Their debut album Lemanis was powerful; Time Travel Dilemma is masterful." -MoreFuzz
"Time Travel Dilemma is a magnificent album. What more can be said, apart from you need this album." -OutlawsOfTheSun
"There are aspects of Time Travel Dilemma that most certainly play to genre, but even these do so with a palpable intention toward leaving an individualized mark rather than simply repeating what's come before. To call that admirable would be an understatement." -TheObelisk
