Mountain Legacy is an album exploring something fundamental to humanity: ISOLATION.
The illusion of silence, which is a natural non-existing concept, is perfectly described by synthetized sounds and noises of the newly acquired band member Claudio Rocchetti (In Zaire). These sounds are missing on the first self-titled release of Deadsmoke, so now the old tracks have been enriched and new ones have been composed providing a consistent psych-disturbed synthetized sound. Six brand new tracks featuring deep guitar fuzz and growling bass take the listener on a journey through the woods, alternating lightly groovy rhythms with sludge-doom cadences.
1782 – From The Graveyard - CD Digi
"From The Graveyard" is the second full length of the Occult Doom band "1782".
In this album there is a leap in quality as the production is much better than the previous releases.
Eight tracks and 43 minutes of pure dark Doom, with slow and powerful riffs, and heavy and massive drumming. After the recording of "Doom Sessions Vol.2", the band immediately enters the studio and records the heaviest tracks they have done so far, and they have done it while maintaining that catchy state they have always had.
As in the eponymous debut album, the artwork was done by the mighty SSCVLT.
"From The Graveyard" was recorded, mixed and mastered in November 2020 by Alfredo Carboni at "RKS Studios" in Ossi, Sardinia (Italy).

The reservoir of new Swedish Metal bands seems to be just endless. Hot on the trails of High Roller recording artists Ambush, Air Raid, Lethal Steel, and so many others, there is Armory, a speed metal outfit from the lovely city of Gothenburg. Originally formed in the late summer of 2012 (out of the ashes of a band called Resurrector), Armory recorded their first demo "Open Fire" in December 2012, followed by "S.M.I." (short for “Speed Metal Island”, referring to the island Hisingen in Gothenburg, where the band is located).
"World Peace … Cosmic War" is the name of Armory's debut album on High Roller Records.
Oldschool veterans GUT are back with a bang!
For years it was quiet about GUT, the last album "The Cumback" is already 14 years old and now GUT are back with their new album "Disciples of Smut".
The sound has been massively developed. "Disciples of Smut" is a mixture of Goregrind, Bestial Black Metal, Death Metal, Doom, Noise and Drone.
Faster, slower, harder, nastier, more atmospheric and more metallic than anything you've ever known from GUT.
The following guest vocalists can be heard on the album to provide further variety: Martin Schirenc from PUNGENT STENCH, Patrick Klopf from DISHARMONIC ORCHESTRA and Martin Matoušek from GUTALAX.
A new classic and a milestone in the sicko genre!
The New Swedish Prog masters have transcribed the tale of an interstellar Galactic battle into a musical odyssey that supersedes anything you have heard to date !
Philadelphia psychedelic doombringers RUBY THE HATCHET are one of heavy music's finest on-the-rise bands.
Evoking a decade's worth of maturity gained in just a few short years, the genesis from the band's 2011 self-titled EP to present day has been nothing short of stunning.
The group's music fuses the sinister tactic of brainwash with blistering riffs and the rebellious mood of sorcery, re-imagining a different path for metal.
Valley of the Snake is a six song journey; a fantastical trek with huge, blistering tracks that journey over peaks and valleys and ditches and oceans before leaving you spinning.
Seething and spitting, RUBY THE HATCHET hammers behemoth waves of dogma and doom, merging precision and patience with a sinister foot-stomping, head-bobbing power.
Red Haze LP
Easterfaust by The Cosmic Dead: a magic carpet ride that began in the hazy days of August 2013 when the cosmics spent five days in a remote isolated garage in the Scottish Highlands with only Focaccia king Luigi Pasquini for company.
Easterfaust was the first momentous improvisation from this session to be released and captures the band in a moment of sheer, vibrant exuberance feeling their way through 42 minutes of visceral augmented repetition which metamorphs from the distant echo of space rock to an all-encompassing climactic synchronicity of sound.
Originally released in 2014, this long sold-out and sought after album is now repressed by Sound Effect Records and will be available in 3 limited vinyl editions and CD.
Ride, oh how we ride.

The third album by the Italian band continues exploring dark fantasies of the talented musicians.
Demonstrating significant progress and development, (EchO) created a mosaic canvas on a melodic death doom metal base filled with outstanding melodies and intersections with different styles, with a touch of psychedelia and a perfect combination of fragility and brutality (both in music and vocals).
Carefully crafted arrangements ensured by the coherence and skills of the musicians are the unique feature of (EchO), that was perfected by Greg Chandler (Esoteric), who performed mixing and mastering in Priory Recording Studio.
