Me And My Kites – Is It Real Or Is It Made? - CD

€11.99

Swedish psychedelic collective Me & My Kites have evolved considerably since the 2012 recording of their excellent debut album "Like a Dream Back Then".
Their latest "Is It Real or is it Made" strips back the psychedelia of that debut in favor of a more progressive, indefinable sound, with a distinctive Canterbury flavor.
Vocalist Lisa Isaksson seems to be a more dominant voice on this release, and her pure, folk-inflected vocals, combined with Karin Engqvist's lyrical piano work, often reminds this listener of a more progressive minded version of the sort of things that the Unthanks have been unleashing over the last few years.

Limited edition custom made 3-panel, 4-color discfolio.

Mayhem ‎– Chimera - CD

MAYHEM once again travels into the dark landscapes and emerges with the darkest record yet.
Having proven themselves ahead of the times with “Grand Declaration of War”, “Chimera” is a total return to the blackness that made them, and MAYHEM once again regains the throne of darkness that is rightfully theirs ! The following times will see a full-fledged world tour and the legend will continue to grow! Be warned !!!

Revolting – Dreadful Pleasures - CD

"Dreadful Pleasures" is a 9 song FEAST of horror obsessed splatter Death Metal chock full of catchy, headbanging songs so intense they will stay with you to the grave - and beyond! 

REVOLTING brings back the gory-glory days of cult Razorback bands such as LORD GORE and FRIGHTMARE, combined with the sound and vibe of the early 90's Swedish Death Metal masters such as GRAVE and DISMEMBER to come up with their own brand of putrid, rotting, and grotesque HORROR DEATH METAL!

The Lords Of Altamont ‎– The Wild Sounds Of The Lords Of Altamont - CD-Digi

A hammered 4-stroke beat like a twin cylinder engine running on idle, a roaring guitar riff revving up the rpms of the iron-built motorcycle-inspired band, then the fresh and insisting breeze of a Farfisa organ whispering 'let's ride' and a heavy bass greasing up the reliable crank and rods of that authentic rock'n'roll machine, and there goes, ladies and gents, the mighty Lords Of Altamont combo!

Riding hard on backyard-built, loud pipes and rigid frame undestructible raw choppers, the band left their garage enlivened by the year of 1969, right at the crossroads of the Summer of Love and the birth of punk rock.

Nebula - To The Center - CD-Digi

Nebula's first non-EP, full-length release, To the Center is another retro-psychedelic heavy rock platter, long on stripped-down riff muscle and surprisingly technically adept guitar jams. The results sometimes meander, which probably isn't of much consequence if this brand of metal is your bag, since this is what you'd expect in this perception-expanding context. What matters more than tightly structured songs are riffs and atmosphere, and both of those are present in abundance.

Swallow The Sun ‎– Ghosts Of Loss - CD

It was only two years after their debut The Morning Never Came (2003) that the Finnish act were ready to show it was a matter of time they were to be considered the next big name in the doom death scene.
Top 10 in Finland’s Top 40 chart and nominated by the Finnish Metal Awards for best cover art and best band, 2005 sees Swallow The Sun and the sophomore album Ghosts Of Loss crowned with success before moving to an even more creative and triumphant period.

Jewelcase CD

Nudist ‎– Bury My Innocence - LP

Black Vinyl Edition.

Nudist is Sound and instinct, at the base of a need: to get naked in front of all genres, attitudes or styles.
The result? Abrupt rhythmic changes and a powerful harsh voice lead the listener out from evocative ambient-psychedelic moments into very rough and groovy sounds

Hellbastard – Heading For Internal Darkness - CD

HELLBASTARD’s milestone debut album “Heading For Internal Darkness” (1988) is finally available again 32 years after its original release date. The material was released on vinyl back in 1988 followed by CD version two years later. The 9-song release brings forth classic metallic crust/thrash/punk from Great Britain that is an absolute must have for fans of AMEBIX, ANTISECT, DISCHARGE, SACRILEGE, SLAYER and the likes.
The CD is released in standard jewel case with slipcase and extensive 24-page booklet including the band’s biography and history written by Scruff himself, liner notes by Woz, lyrics, and tons of gig and tour posters as well as never seen before picture from the band’s archives!

On top of that there is 6 bonus songs not included on the original version!

Uncreation - Overwhelming Chaos CD

Unrelenting Ancient Death Metal. Chaotic guitar riffing, a frantic drums work, morbid obscure vocals and diseased
bestiality without compromise! No fucking mercy!!!

In the vein of early pioneers of traditional Death Metal, like early MORBID ANGEL, early DEICIDE, early GOREFEST, DEMIGOD,
CONVULSE, AUTOPSY, early GRAVE, GORGUTS... thinking also to KAAMOS and SLUGATHOR...!!!

Ataraxie – Résignés - 2CD-Digi

6 years after they released 3rd album "L'Être et la Nausée", French doom/death master Ataraxie unleash their 4th album "Résignés" into decaying world of doom!
Extremely heavy doomed riffs sinking into abyss, intense death metal part with tremolo riffs and 2-beat/blast drumming, and strong harmoney by 3 guitars. Majestic low frequency echoing in darkness and sorrowful melodies. This is extreme doom/death that meant to be!

Oreyeon - Ode To Oblivion - CD-Digi

Release date: MArch 15, 2019

OREYEON'S new album ODE TO OBLIVION comes after two years of experimental sessions in their little studio recording nastled between the sea and the mountains in the north west of italy. This new full lenght crosses transversely all member's musical influences and takes shape leaving behind and definitely going beyond the rules that mostly describe the classical stonerrock genre. Just from the first track, a strong sense of nothingness blends into a long unsettling travel through a microcosm full of colours while black shapes lead the traveller into a spiral of nihilistic lyrics, title tracks and monolithic riffs all at the same time .

Hibiscus Biscuit – Reflection Of Mine - LP

After a long year of recordings, shows and debaucherous behaviour, Sydney psychedelic quartet Hibiscus Biscuit have just launched their debut album release: 'Reflection of Mine'. Hibiscus Biscuit’s brand of psychedelic rock cavorts about between driving syncopated breakdowns, melancholic lullabies and tight progressive groove sections.
A few years after the bands chance conception in Newtown’s Camperdown Park, 'Reflection of Mine' was conceived in the band's new home studio in the Blue Mountains. Cue a depraved 6 months avoiding sunlight, and they emerge with their debut record and a blistering caffeine addiction. Featuring mixing by Liam Judson and mastering by Nick Franklin, their debut is a swirling blend of psychedelic goodness.
