With “Sabbracadaver” MONARCH unearth a frightening nightmarish vision through a three-track 46-minute soundscape that torturously and painfully crawls yet at the same time enchants and seduces through its ethereal beckoning atmosphere. Forged by a heaving earth rumbling low-end rhythm section being harnessed by the plodding riffs of despair, and all held within the grips of the harsh and spellbinding vocals of Emilie Bresson, MONARCH have continued to raise the bar and push their own threshold with every succeeding release they unleash amongst their already expansive repertoire. This is the vinyl edtion on MusicFearSatan with a special etched D-side !
Omens is MONARCH's sixth full-length release of atmospheric dirge / drone since their 2005 inception, not to mention the myriad of other releases within thatamount of time including three EPs, three split releases and more.
Thirty Four minutes of drone and eerie moans building to lurching drums and strings accented by harsh screams ending with haunting vocals & drones. A 3 minute Lustmordian interlude punctuated with dire howls. Funeral dirge builds adding juxtapositional angelic tones. Ugly drone, dark whispers, screeches erratic yells and then slowly ends as it begun!
Since their agonizing and crushing last record ( »ANTI LIFE », 2018), CULT OF OCCULT was asleep.
Today, the band is back with »Ruin », a 20 minutes mastodon of a song as oppressive and nihilistic as ever.
»Ruin » is available as a vinyl EP limited to 500 copies with an etched B-side.
France's most hated band is back with their fourth record, ''ANTI LIFE'', and this time it is a concept album.
CULT OF OCCULT delivers a sole 54 minutes track divided into four parts, exploring the darkest, creepiest and most extreme side of doom and sludge music. The four musicians were used to drown like a stone through the abyss but with this new album they have touched the bottom, maybe even deeper. This is a one way ticket to the ultimate extremities music can offer.
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’.
CONTROL DENIED, the progressive heavy metal brainchild of legendary DEATH mastermind Chuck Schuldiner, released its first and only album The Fragile Art Of Existence (1999) to massive critical acclaim.
The Fragile Art Of Existence is the sound of traditional metal stepping into a new century; an album where the experiences and inspirations of trail-blazing, world-class musicians coalesced under the watchful eye of one of the genre's master craftsmen.
Now available for the first time ever as an official vinyl release, The Fragile Art Of Existence has been remastered and beautifully repackaged.

Finland's favorite sons return with an astounding new collection of richly textured metal anthems woven from a diverse variety of influences and produced by Simon Efemey (Paradise Lost).
A crowning achievement of progressive splendor!
'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!
