Darkthrone ‎– The Cult Is Alive - CD

€14.99

After their early foray into the world consciousness with SOULSIDE JOURNEY they delivered the unholy trinity of A BLAZE IN THE NORTHERN SKY, UNDER A FUNERAL MOON and TRANSILVANIAN HUNGER.
Censorship and heavy handed political correctness forced the band from Peaceville and they made a succession of albums for the fledgling Moonfog label.
Something was always missing from this equation though, and soon the band members yearned to go home and made it clear. 
However, time heals all wounds, and as soon as the band became free they planned their return to the forefront of the Metal existence with Peaceville.
THE CULT IS ALIVE is the fetid, rotting, rocking first fruits of Darkthrone's second coming at Peaceville.

Darkthrone Holy Darkthrone - Eight Norwegian Bands Paying Tribute - CD

On the aptly named 'Darkthrone Holy Darkthrone', eight Norwegian Black Metal legends pay tribute to the inspirational band that helped define the genre and pave the way for decades of destruction to come.
Originally released in 1998, the album was in honour of Darkthrone's first 10 years of existence.

The album mainly focuses on Darkthrone’s earliest works, from the blasting opener from the ‘A Blaze in the Northern Sky’ album - courtesy of Satyricon - via the experimental rendition of ‘The Pagan Winter’ from Thorns.
Closing with Immortal’s ‘To Walk the Infernal Fields’, this is a faithful and passionate tribute to an essential band given an individual touch from each act involved.

Darkthrone ‎– Arctic Thunder - CD

Norwegian duo, Darkthrone, return with their first new studio material since 2013's triumphant The Underground Resistance.
Fenriz and Nocturno Culto once more show their mastery of 'the riff', demonstrating why Darkthrone remain one of the most respected and enduring acts in the history of extreme Metal.
An eclectic mix of free-spirited 1980's fuelled blackened Heavy Metal executed in Darkthrone's trademark raw and organic style, Arctic Thunder was recorded and produced by the band, with the sessions conducted at Darkthrone's old rehearsal unit, The Bomb Shelter.
With themes based around hate, contempt, and the inner mind and soul, Arctic Thunder retains a grim atmosphere throughout the album's 8 tracks.

Darkthrone ‎– Sempiternal Past (The Darkthrone Demos) - CD

Darkthrone began in the late 80's as a thrash/death metal act and progressed through technical death/doom metal experimentation to become hugely respected and influential legends of the black metal world, and one of the original leading forces of the Norwegian scene, alongside other legendary acts such as Mayhem and Burzum.
'Sempiternal Past' contains all 4 of Darkthrone's cult demo releases recorded between 1988-1989 ('Land of Frost', 'A New Dimension', 'Thulcandra', & 'Cromlech') and shows the remarkable development of the band in its early years.
Each demo has now been fully restored and re-mastered from the best tape sources available, specifically for this release.
The cd booklet features liner notes, lyrics and rare photos of the band in their early years.

On Thorns I Lay ‎– Aegean Sorrow - 2LP

Long-running Greek death/doom troupe ON THORNS I LAY will unleash their eighth studio offering this spring 2018 titled Aegean Sorrow.
The stunning nine-track offering was captured at Devasoundz Studios by Fotis Benardo (Rotting Christ, Septic Flesh, etc.) and mixed and mastered at Unisound AB Studio by Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity, Bloodbath, Pan.Thy.Monium, Witherscape, etc.).

Easily among the most consuming records of their more than twenty-year career, Aegean Sorrow fuses seemingly clashing concepts of catchy melodies and an incessantly mournful ambiance throughout.

Hades Archer – Temple Of The Impure - LP

Hailing from Chile, HADES ARCHER are staunchly and proudly a duo.
Across their prolific canon, HADES ARCHER have come to define - and set the gold standard for - modern black/death metal hailing from South America.

The band's first new recordings in two years, Temple of the Impure proves that the silence was indeed golden, for LP#2 is a fucking firestorm of filth and foulness, a forever-flowing fount of unnervingly hypnotic ultra violence. Both defining and deviating from the classic Chilean archetype, Temple of the Impure sees HADES ARCHER simultaneously surpassing the boundaries of chaotic overload and somehow delivering their most diseased and dirt-encrusted expression by paradoxically locating their cleanest and most professional recording to date.

Mos Generator – Spontaneous Combustions - LP Blue

Mos Generator formed during the winter of 2000, in Port Orchard, Washington from the ashes of a ten year off and on collaboration between its original three members, all of whom were long time veterans of road and studio. The need to strip down to the basics of hard rock was apparent from the start and continues to be the foundation for all the band's recent material.

Blue Vinyl limited to 200 copies

Nebula - Dos E.P.'s - LP

Nebula is one of those bands that would have fit perfectly on a concert bill with Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, or the Stooges circa 1973. The power trio of Eddie Glass (vocals, guitars), Ruben Romano (drums), and Mark Abshire (bass) has quietly fused a somewhat modernized but highly distinctive '70s hard rock sound all its own. Releasing Dos Eps is a smart move, combining the very limited Sun Creature EP and the Meteor City split with three additional songs that groove on raunchy guitar hooks, opaque slacker vocals, and bleed-heavy drumming.

Antigama – Zeroland - CD

Polish tremendous quartet Antigama takes another step forward with its third full length album "Zeroland" delivering extremely creative and diverse combination of various aggressive music styles.

On this nine-song album the Warsaw powerhouse allows the listener to experience immeasurable number of speed light blasts, disharmonic grind and experimental noise. The creation gives the most intricate, dynamic and innovative sound of the genre. Manic drumming, heavy distorted guitars, gorgeous vocals and shrieks are inarguable trademarks of Antigama. Complex and twisted grind, forward thinking metal - avantgrind!

For fans of NAPALM DEATH, PIG DESTROYER, CEPHALIC CARNAGE, GOBLIN.

Buio Mondo ‎– Italia Violenta - LP

"Buio Mondo moves between the ominous world of John Carpenter and the dark fantasy of Goblin. Just like the cinema of the great Dario Argento, it immerses us in a universe where dreams become a terrible reality, a warning from those demons who dwell behind the scenes of existence."

Bloody Phoenix ‎– Death To Everyone - CD

BxPx are back again, billowing out barrels of grind that will pollute your mind like a 6-ft bong hit of From Enslavement to Obliteration. As with their debut LP, BxPx continue the tradition of no-thrills grindcore, keeping it direct and brutal not unlike their earlier band EXCRUCIATING TERROR.

Belzebong ‎– Light The Dankness - CD Digi

Light the Dankness is the latest Belzebong album, released in 2018. We are very stoked to present you the repress of this amazing record.

Drako Gigant – Drako Gigant - CD-Digi

Drako Gigant is an experimental heavy musical constellation from Athens Greece, formed in 2017 under the concept of exploring heavy music combined with elements of sonic textures like early industrial, ambient, progressive rock, jazz and metal.
Improvisation has been the backbone of creating the soundscapes laid down, but not without carefully considering the impact each result might have, first upon the creators and then upon the listener.
The members, each coming from different genres and with different approach to how music works and is created, collide in a cauldron of ideas where explosive mixtures and intense dynamics meet and merge into strong bonds of a sound collage full of contradiction.

No boundaries, no walls, just pure music exploration!

Ennio Morricone ‎– The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - 2LP

Fanatics of '70s Italian giallos take note…

Behold a veritable smorgasbord of sounds that is Ennio Morricone’s score to Dario Argento’s debut film, THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE (a.k.a. L'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo) from 1970.

Considered one of the genre’s gold standards, Maestro Morricone’s stunning sonic work is a masterful accompaniment to the knife-wielding images on the screen. This colorful (yet dark) score features il Maestro’s trademark scat vocal harmonies, beautiful melodies, and mandatory sinister themes – perfect musica for this wonderfully stylistic giallo masterpiece.

Side C and D contain tracks never previously released on vinyl.
