Originally thought of as simply a black metal super group, Norway’s ARCTURUS, had the guts to incorporate traditional melody, keyboards, vocal experimental and melodrama into their sinister theatrics. Now, on their fourth full-length release, they have become the premiere progressive, avant-garde art band.
Vulture Industries – The Tower - CD
Money is power. This is truth and the theme of VULTURE INDUSTRIES’ twisted new album, “The Tower”.
The Norwegians’ new full-length explores dark musical vistas and lyrics within a unique mixture of progressive, experimental, extreme and even foreboding symphonic elements. With a wealth of creativity and the ability to shift gears smoothly in the blink of an eye, VULTURE INDUSTRIES bend, twist, and shape their songs into living entities embodying the width and breadth of human emotion.

The third work of Italy’s gloomy kings Shores Of Null continues to prove the band’s willingness to go off the beaten path and create their ultimate Doom manifesto.
‘Beyond The Shores (On Death And Dying)’ is a 38 minute-long suite emphasizing their heavier, slower and dramatic side, inspired by the five stages of grief formulated by the Swiss-American psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross.

Baroness' Yellow & Green finds a band that has developed into more than just giants of the metal underground, they are now fully formed hard rock titans.
Fans of the band have come to expect nothing less than constant evolution from Baroness and that is precisely what the band has delivered, but in ways noone could have anticipated: the hooks are immediately seared into your brain, riffs that take just one listen to fully lodge themselves in your consciousness and vocals that are sung both heavily and beautifully.

Mastodon's ninth full-length album, 'Hushed And Grim' closes a four-year gap. It is the heavy rock quartet’s first double album and first new record since 2017’s Emperor of Sand, which netted the Atlanta band a GRAMMY® Award in the category of “Best Metal Performance”.
As their most ambitious body of work to date, it consists of 15 tracks, surveying sonic landscapes of rock, psychedelia, punk, metal, alternative, and prog threaded together by the innately expressive musical interplay of these four virtuosic musicians.
For as much as HUSHED AND GRIM is steeped in one of the darkest periods of the band’s career as each member experiencing personal grief, its light shines through in a fully realized manifestation everything Mastodon is right now.

New release for this crust band based in Portland with ex members from Malachi.
While the guitars roar, the drums resound and the throat fills with anger, we build while we destroy. Emotions drive sound, sound powers the heart and the heart bellows from within. Caterwauling, grief, and anxiety are heard chewing on grit and dirt from the mouth of the void. Frustration leaves a taste on the lips.

Started back in 1984 by characteristic singer Katon W. De Pena, Hirax are indisputable pioneers of American thrash metal/crossover.
The disc consists of "Raging Violence" (1985, Metal Blade) and "Hate, Fear And Power" (1986, Metal Blade), the classic first two albums.
Symbology of Shelter sees ever more dissonant black metal influences seeping into Noise Trail Immersion's chaotic music, balanced out by traces of post-metal utilized to make the group's compositions more dynamic and versatile.
Noise Trail Immersion thrives on fusing chaos and calm in an emotionally rousing manner both mournful and vitriolic throughout Symbology of Shelter. The album kicks off knee deep in disgust and aggression, seething endlessly on cuts such as opener "Mirroring", while showcasing an ambitious side and somber vibes of an entirely different nature on the album’s double dose of two-part songs, beginning with "Repulsion and Escapism Parts I and II", then returning later on the album to the journey contained between “The Empty Earth I” and “The Empty Earth II”.
Digipak edition limited to first pressing only! ABORYM have managed the impossible: with “Psychogrotesque” the unholy wedding of Black Metal and Industrial finally makes perfect sense.

As on ABORYM’s former releases, several special guests contribute on “Psychogrotesque” like Pete Vegem from BLOOD TSUNAMI, EPHEL DUATH mastermind Davide Tiso and a spectacular collaboration with legendary CRISIS frontwoman Karyn Crisis.

Formed in 2013 and promptly getting to work on a split tape and two successive demos, GOATHAMMER have been a study of staunch underground ethics from the very beginning.
Theirs is a sound that's steeped in decades of arcane black/death wisdom, canvassing an array of eras and international flavors whilst being finessed into foul, filthy form by true fanatics.
As such, Ceremony of Morbid Destruction is the grand, garish culmination of GOATHAMMER's noble work thus far.
Here, the quartet prove they're more than just an identikit "goat"/bestial band; there's a sulfurous aura and true dungeon-bound darkness that bespeak the ancient ways of the 1990s, but completely unselfconsciously so.
Topped off by a gloriously gory artwork, the album alternates between quasi-Swedish buzz (‘Into Obliteration’) and blissfully hideous doom in the vein of Autopsy, at times even blackly blasting as in ‘Festering Alive’, constantly swinging and swashbuckling in equal measure.
Fast barnstormers like the opening ‘Resurrect the Source’, the impossibly catchy ‘The Trophy’ or the thrash tango that is ‘Desolate Animation’ brim with both youthful exuberance and the deliberate songcraft you’d expect from seasoned masters … which Evoked, too, are destined to become.
Black Drapes For Tomorrow is the band's sophomore album, out on Candlelight/Spinefarm Records. The title leaves no room for misinterpretations, Shores Of Null are back with a burden of gloom and darkness.

All tracks are remastered by Dan Lowndes from Resonance Sound Studio. Slow drumming guide you to the realm of the children of Saturn, sorrowful melodies combined with crushing power chords bring gloomy atmosphere, and the growling poet will lead you to the hall of coronation! The doomed codex are now dug up from the tomb in the bleak lakeside and see the light of the day again!

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.

Heavy Psych Sounds Records is reissuing first three albums of the Swedish legendary band Dozer: In The Tail Of A Comet, Madre De Dios and Call It Conspiracy.
Three masterpieces of the European stoner scene. These three records elevated the scene to a higher level and gave Dozer the scepter of the Scandinavian stoner movement.
In the post-Kyuss era, Dozer, along with bands like Los Natas and Acid King, brought a flurry of pure, desert-style monolithic riffs and tons of fuzz guitars.
The band had a very big influence on the European stoner bands and we can definitely say Dozer are one of the European stoner godfathers.
The reissues will be released in a bunch of very special coloured vinyl editions, a unique opportunity to have these records on vinyl.
