SPLIT LP OF DROM & BLUES FOR THE REDSUN
The fourth, grand album by the Norwegian avantgarde maestros.
2021 CD reissue by Punishment 18 Records under License from Century Media Records.
Oakland, California-based progressive doom metal sextet SECRETS OF THE SKY projects a unique brand of cinematic, cerebral, atmospheric metal with a heavy persuasion towards doom metal and even more blackened influences citing The Ocean, Opeth, Isis, Agalloch and others. The debut album from this new but skilled act, ‘To Sail Black Waters’, is a modern and unique mix of elements from a multitude of genres. With up to three guitar tracks, two and three keyboards at a time and a multitude of vocal styles — clean and epic lines against hollow and blackened battle cries and crushing, low-end growls — the band creates huge buildups and epic movements as expansive as the cosmos.
20 years after its recordings, SOLEFALD’s fourth album ‘IN HARMONIA UNIVERSALI’ will be finally available on vinyl for the first time ever.
We at Spikerot Records are stoked to have been able to lay our hands on this timeless classic of Avantgarde Metal.
This long awaited release comes on double vinyl in two different color variants, housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with exclusive and extensive liner notes by Cornelius and Lazare, and including a 4-panel insert with lyrics.

BLue LP limited to 100 copies
FLOOR are back with ‘Oblation’. Adding a dose of doom and a dash of drone, this new opus perfectly encapsulates FLOOR’s trademark desert rock feeling of shimmering heat, the pound and stomp of heavy engines, and a burning taste of diesel in the air. CONVERGE guitarist Kurt Ballou mixed the album at GodCity Studios (TORCHE, KVELERTAK, HIGH ON FIRE) and the mastering was done by Alan Douches (BARONESS, BLACK TUSK, MOTÖRHEAD). Lean back, crank up and sacrifice to the gods of stoner rock with this mighty ‘Oblation’.
'Goliathan' embodies the band's trademark shuffle and swagger at their fullest. Syrupy slow riffs are buoyed by canyon-deep bass and some of the hardest-hitting drumming since Keith Moon. Full-on bruisers such as "Cain Enabler", "Claw of the Sloth", and the aptly-named "Bully" demonstrate that 'Goliathan' is delivering a vintage WEEDEATER and the soon-to-be gold standard of Southern sludge metal. After signing to Season of Mist, WEEDEATER released their full back-catalogue on their new label. Yet the Bible Belt state of North Carolina, USA remains a fertile ground for hemp and stoner rock. 'Goliathan' makes the South smoke again.
Lean back and let this monster record blow your mind!
On the fringe of chaos, in the Year of the Pandemic, the Cannabeast has awoken!!

Komatsu's powers of mass construction resurrected a rare desert flower in their fourth album “Rose of Jericho”.
Light meets heavy and desolation meets beauty in the 9 powerful songs that make up this album.
“Rose of Jericho” combines a lyrical depth that resonates the current (political) rabbitholes with dark, groovy, warm riffs supporting rugged vocals. The sound of the album is a real mixture between Stoner and Metal, but with melodic and choral vocal lines. Change of tempo and rhythm, make the listener glue to the speakers until the last note of the album. Komatsu is Mo Truijens (vocals/guitar), Mathijs Bodt (guitar), Martijn Mansvelders (bass) and Jos Roosen (drums).
Blackened Sludge from Finland
"Beginning with one of the most haunting intros in blackened sludge history, this two-track by Finnish act Radien is one to cherish for a long time. Eerie vocals and throat-singing over slow, lingering riffs and forceful drums, creating an intense, murky atmosphere, right before all hell breaks loose in sheer Yob or Conan style. Yet, now that those comparisons have been made, it's safe to say that Radien somehow manages to lift the level of intensity even higher. Makes me wonder: why is this band not at the very top of the sludge-scene? And the second track simply repeats the whole demolition. Masterfully crafted blackened sludge, nothing more, nothing less..." -MERCHANTS OF AIR
