Double Black LP
A third album of unreleased vintage cult Metal from the classic solo project created by Darkthrone's Fenriz.
180g vinyl with liner notes from Fenriz (explaining the origins of the release, the recording process, and providing some background into his influences at the time).
Vårjevndøgn presents a monumental slab of epic Heavy Metal mixed with a sombre Doomy Rock/Metal atmosphere, bringing to mind bands like US Heavy Metal veterans Pentagram.
The album also includes 2 tracks previously only heard on the limited Traditional Doom Cult 7”.
Everything on Vårjevndøgn was performed and engineered by Fenriz himself.
The tracks were all recorded between 1989 and 1993 at Necrohell Studios (notable for birthing Darkthrone’s classic Transilvanian Hunger and Panzerfaust albums).

Originally released in 2000, ’Strange Old Brew’ is the second album by the ever-uncompromising Norwegians. It was recorded at Sound Suite Studios, produced & mixed by Terje Refsnes (Tristania, Gehenna, Sirenia).
Considered a cult Black Metal release, the album deals with dark themes of death & suicide, introducing stronger atmospherics alongside their trademark brand of raw Black Metal mixed with inspiration from the 80’s Black Metal scene & rock/punk genres.
Carpathian Forest remain one of the leading names from the infamous Scandinavian Black Metal Scene.
This edition of ‘Strange Old Brew’ is presented on 180gm black vinyl.
Isengard was the solo-project started in 1989 by Fenriz because he had many musical ideas to explore that didn't strictly fit in with the style and music of Darkthrone.
Under the Isengard moniker, Fenriz released 2 albums, Vinterskugge & Høstmørke. Hostmorke, meaning Autumn Darkness, was the second Isengard album, (even though the debut, 'Vinterskugge' is a collection of sorts).
It was released in 1995 and featured a continuation of Norwegian folk elements mixed with some doom, with all instruments once again performed by Fenriz himself, as well as the now-trademark vocal delivery.
The latter part of the album also features a couple of black metal tracks which explore territory a bit more in line with Darkthrone.

Konserva is the debut album of the Athens-based garage/post-punk rockers Μινέρβα (Minerva).
After their first EP "Βέλβετ/Mama Shoe", Konserva comes in light to complete a journey that started years ago in the tropical city of Korinthos by 3 childhood friends.
Konserva (Κονσέρβα in greek, which means tin can) indicates the city of Athens, and everything that it is included in its daily basis, like depression, anger, dirt, psychedelia as well as happiness and the need to party and feel loved. All the above are expressed in this album through up tempo beats, punchy bass lines, extremely reverberated rhythm guitars and fuzzy riffs as well as distorted and echoed vocals.
If there are three words that can fully describe Μινέρβα, these are: Garage, Moustache & Desire.
Crypt Trip returns! Following their last album “Rootstock” the Texas rockers are delivering more Cosmic American sounds straight to your ears, mind, and soul. Their new album, “Haze County”, sonically and lyrically explores the complexities of space and time and then brings you back down to the very Earth you’re made of.
Spiritualistic session in space. Supersonic travel to singularity on an acid fuzz. Epic odyssey in the depths of consciousness. Hypnotic jams with orgasmic catharsis. Outstanding psychedelic trip iridescent with all shades of outer and inner space. And all that's Temnee. "Dialectics", the debut full-length album of Temnee, the band from Tver, Russia, is finally coming out on vinyl via Sound Effect Records! That is powerful instrumental heavy-psych stoner with deep and thick riffs, psychedelic passages, southern blues jams, oriental melodies, a lot of Sabbath's legacy and a krautrock drive.

"Back in December of 2010, I went into a house in Joshua Tree California to record another solo record. About 4 days into the sessions, I decided to abandon the 8 songs I was working on, told my long time friend and engineer, Tony Mason, to start rolling tape and I proceeded to play drums in my natural improv style. After multiple drum track performances were captured, I then started layering guitars, bass and percussion in the same improvisational spirit. I essentially decided to "jam" by myself for the rest of my scheduled sessions. I decided to call the collective tracks, Jacoozzi. At the time, it reminded me of the feeling of my first solo recording sessions for my first solo release, Jalamanta.... only more "free". "
Emerging from the wider surrounding of death dealers Evoked in the industrial juggernaut of North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany, Scalpture turn out to be a surprisingly individual take on true-and-tested genre formulas.
While the members were doubtlessly raised on a diet of Bolt Thrower with two big spoons of Dutch and American fare respectively, it’s clear from the outset that Scalpture’s second full-length is its very own beast.
As a musical narrative unfolding during the ravages of World War I, “Eisenzeit” does not once plumply glorify armed conflict and heroic violence but displays a peculiar depth.
Add to this highly emotional mix a monstrously powerful yet crystalline sound devoid of any shallow “vintage” references, and you can be sure that Scalpture are going to actively shape the future

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.

One of the most morbid and bloodiest death metal bands from Germany crawls out of his tomb and after 1.5 years of abstinence comes back with a almost half-hour new mini album.
The title of this new masterpiece is 'ABATTOIR'. And that's exactly what the songs on the album sound like: bloody, creeping, aggressive and murderously tight.
SLAUGHTERDAY presents 4 brand new songs, which show a clear development of the band, without losing their style and their own character. In addition, there are 2 cover versions, one song from the masters of Doom Metal TROUBLE and another track from the early years of finnish AMORPHIS.
In a scene of countless carbon copies and soulless attempts to evoke the majesty of the ancient Swedish Black/Death Metal legacy, WATAIN stand alone solemnly. They are watching from the shadows, in genuine victorious sincerity

Initially released in a very limited quantity exclusively to the underground, the originals have been capturing large amounts at internet auctions.
Now remastered, with a bonus track and all new artwork, the copies of this evil album are sure to disappear into a cloud of smoke from store shelves.
'Success' is a funny concept. On its rawest, most pure form, it is entirely relative, and this was the subject KEN mode chose to approach their new album with.
Both sonically and lyrically, a shift has been made from the classic spitting of metallic hardcore tinged vitriol to a more raw indie aesthetic.
On 'Success' KEN mode pay tribute to where they've come from, saluting both their Canadian Prairie roots and a time when they first started to care about making music.
This was a time when the burgeoning grunge scene of the late 80's / early 90s, with bands like NIRVANA, BIG BLACK, COP SHOOT COP, THE COWS, CIRCUS LUPUS, and DRIVE LIKE JEHU were warping their teenage minds.
GORGUTS, long-running Canadian craftsmen of technical death metal have returned!

This is mandatory metal! Recommended if you like: DEATH, CRYPTOPSY, NECROPHAGIST, SUFFOCATION, OBSCURA, ATHEIST, BEYOND CREATION, ARCHSPIRE, ORIGIN, ULCERATE
Massive power trio HIGH ON FIRE are a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume.
Equal parts molten metal and earthquake panic, HIGH ON FIRE's Motorhead-meets-Slayer roar is outrageously loud and absolutely punishing.
Guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike (Sleep) unleashes a devastating combination of bombastic guitar and howling war cries, weaving fantastical tales of supernatural beasts, forgotten battles and rivers of blood over an unstoppable bass and drum assault.
Annihilation of the Wicked teems with the blasting extremity and epic arrangements that have become Nile trademarks.
Swarming guitars unleash razor sharp hooks, relentless drum blasts push human limits of endurance, and vicious vocals deliver strike after strike in a more concise, precise and balanced attack than ever before.
World-class production courtesy of Neil Kernon (Queensryche, Nevermore).
