Alcest ‎– Kodama - LP

€24.99

180g Black Vinyl

"Kodama" the fifth album from Blackgaze pioneers, Alcest, marks the French duo's ferocious return to the stylistic maximalism of its early albums while continuing the band's relentless pursuit for new sounds and fresh ideas.
"Kodama" is the Japanese word for 'tree spirit' and 'echo' and from the album's structure and dynamics to its cinematic sound, "Kodama" indeed 'echoes' Alcest's 2010 classic, "Écailles De Lune".
But this is no simple back-to-the-roots album: the band has more punch, rhythm and organic feel than ever before.
While clearly influenced by bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Dinosaur Jr, Grimes and The Cure, "Kodama" ultimately reveals itself as Alcest's 'Japanese album', drawing substantial inspiration from Japanese art and culture.

Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain - 2LP Clear

Agalloch's 'Ashes Against The Grain' is an impressive follow-up to 2002's 'The Mantle,' their groundbreaking sophomore album that fused the emotional struggles of dark metal, folk music and melodic harmonies.
The album as well served as an influentialbase for a lot of younger bands who have since surfaced, yet few have been able to capture the dark beauty that coats the emotional wounds sculpting Agalloch's work.
On 'Ashes Against The Grain' the band continues their sonic journey, always progressing but never losing touch with their dark metal roots, as the band's third album unites elements of black metal, Scandinavian prog and post-rock with the band's signature brooding style.

Double Clear Vinyl, limited to 500 copies.

Ulver - Flowers of Evil - LP

Flowers of Evil, the new studio album from Ulver, finds the wolf pack exploring the fear and wonder of mankind’s fall from redemption.

“Doom dance”, someone dubbed their last studio album, the critically acclaimed, Impala Award-winning The Assassination of Julius Caesar (2017).
Flowers of Evil comes across as an unfeigned progression along the course set by that album, revealing a band moving deeper into beats and grooves, hooks and choruses, synths and guitars, yet sounding more stripped back, making room for the distinctive detail.
Once again Michael Rendall (The Orb) and legendary producer Martin “Youth” Glover have taken crystalline care of the mix.

WINTER ETERNAL – Land Of Darkness - CD

WINTER ETERNAL rampage through the Land of Darkness on their third album.
Thrillingly chilling yet breathtakingly emotional, Land of Darkness absolutely bristles with an ancient-days mysticism and melodicism that bring black metal's majestic past into the present.
However, again like its full-length predecessor but more so here, WINTER ETERNAL poignantly taps into that wellspring of creation the aforementioned legends did and feeds his own lifeforce into it, flexing fluid chops along the way and returns with a nine-song/40-minute document of dreams both dark and beautiful.

WINTER ETERNAL have at last arrived, and beckon you to venture across their Land of Darkness!

Planet Of Zeus ‎– Faith In Physics - LP

In 2019, at a time in which irrationalism seems to be king, Planet of Zeus return with their highly anticipated fifth studio album, "Faith in Physics".
Lyrically, this album seems to be Planet of Zeus's most socio-politically conscious release, dealing with themes such as digitalization, religion, social network pseudo-revolution, addiction and lonerism.
Musically, it sounds like the band's chosen to take the dirtiest path possible in order to create the highly charged atmosphere needed to get its messages through.
46 minutes of heavy, intellectual riffology and fat grooves, reminiscent of RATM's best days, MC5-esque attitude, coupled with QOTSA's pop sensibilities.

Insect Ark ‎– Portal/Well - CD-Digi (Signed)

'Portal/Well' is the deeply melodic, dense, austere & wildly unhinged debut album from Insect Ark. Written, performed & recorded by Dana Schechter (Angels Of Light / Bee And Flower) in complete solitude, in her Brooklyn studio. 'Portal/Well' finds its voice in the haunting groans of the lap steel guitar, the stalking bass, the insistent drum programming & the deep oscillations of synthesisers.

Thrash, hardcore, grindcore... crossover reborn in the 21st century!
Collision definitely have developed over the years, where the intense grindcore of their star ting years was later on injected with a humongous dose of thrash and humour, a sound they now have perfected with their new album “A Healthy Dose of Death”.

EGGÞÉR ‎– Volume Null - MCD

Debut mini-album from this Danish constellation. With former OBSKURE TORTURE members, EGG?ÉR sets out on a spectacular musickal journey, through the Causal cosmos - with an overt nihilistic outlook – straight into the pit… Nadir.
Significant sonic influences include VULPECULA, SPEAR OF LONGINUS, CATHEDRAL, WINTER, MOONBLOOD… and, needless to say, the masters of the void, BLACK SABBATH.

Radien ‎– Aste - Metal Case CD

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

Ennio Morricone ‎– Once Upon A Time In The West - LP Transparent + Poster

After the "Dollar Trilogy", Sergio Leone was given a new offer on another western movie that he could not refuse. Following his own rules again he directed the monumental "Once upon a time in the West", featuring the American actors Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson among others.
Each character is strongly stereotyped here, a fact emphasized by the motion picture soundtrack, once again delivered by Ennio Morricone.
The flavor is epic, but also very romantic at some points.
This is another excellent demonstration that, when it comes to the exquisite blending of images and music, Italians do it better!
This is another perfect soundtrack for a magnificent movie!

Pressed on 180g Transparent Vinyl
Comes in a splendid gatefold package, with a 30x30cm inlay poster.
