California's pioneers CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER team up with FOAD Records for an incredible vinyl treasure finally giving the right treatment to their legendary "Life in grave" Demotape 1985 and to an accurate selection of ultra-rare/unreleased recordings ranging from their 3 piece line-up era (1985) to the "Convicted"/"Money talks" days. This release has been in the works for months until we found the top sounding masters in existence and restored them for the best possible audiophile result when pressed on vinyl. Side A includes the band's Demotape "Life in grave" adding 2 rehearsal tracks from the same period, one is a speeded up HELLHAMMER cover and one is a super-raw version of VENOM's "Welcome to hell". Side B is all focused on the "Convicted"/"Money talks" 4 piece line-up and includes various live recordings and a good sounding rehearsal 1986. All songs here are performed even faster than how they were played on their classic albums. This is how Goodbadmusic.com introduced "Life in grave": "1985 was a good year for music ? bands like SLAUGHTER, NYC MAYHEM, VOOR, WEHRMACHT, HIRAX, DEATH, REPULSION and CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER amazed me and they still blow me away today! Especially this one here with its youthful urgency, its unpolished power and enthusiasm. And stilistically, this was very refreshing. Could you say whether this is more metal or more HC? Does it matter to you?" Being this one of the most important FOAD releases to date, we also dedicated the right passion to the packaging: a stunning gatefold sleeve and most of all a 36 PAGE zine/booklet stuffed with rare photos, interviews, zine excerpts and gig flyers. If you're into any kind of fast music be it Thrash, Hardcore, Grind or Power Violence, you are MAD if you miss this!!!!

Crypt Trip ‎– Haze County - LP

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. 

Deadsmoke ‎– Mountain Legacy - LP

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.

Vespertina ‎– Glossolalia - LP

One-sided silkscreen vinyl.

The ancient and timeless atmosphere of this delicate album is perfectly reflected even on the artwork of this one sided record. There's magic in these old pictures, where Vespertina as a witch seems to be hiding a secret or summoning a spirit, the creature printed on the vinyl.

Let it possess you and your stereo!

Wedge - Killing Tongue - CD-Digi

Following the buzz of WEDGE's debut, the group now unveils their eagerly awaited follow-up "Killing Tongue" ...and it truly kills! Although also deeply rooted in the rock'n'roll of the late 60s & early 70s, this album clearly is a strong progression from its precursor, presenting a multicolored spectrum of sounds and more diverse songwriting. Power trio-untypical arrangements and instruments like electric sitar, clavinet and harpsichord among others are accompanying especially some of the new psychedelia soaked tunes. But of course you can expect plenty of good old fuzz guitar and Hammond organ driven material as well.

Ennio Morricone ‎– La Vita, A Volte, E' Molto Dura, Vero Provvidenza? (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - LP

LA VITA, A VOLTE, E’ MOLTO DURA, VERO PROVVIDENZA? (Life Is Tough, Eh Providence?) is a western comedy directed in 1972 by Giulio Petroni and starring Tomas Milian, Gregg Palmer, Janet Agren, Maurice Poli. Tomas Milian stars as a bounty hunter with the eccentric name of Provvidenza. At the time, RCA did not issue any record although the film was a great success at the box office. Now GDM Music adjusts the time line producing the 33 rpm vinyl album that never saw the light in 1972, using a stereo master tape assembled at the time, but never printed.

Zaum - Oracles - LP

ZAUM caught the ear of I Hate with a truly impressive sound that (to us at least) combines the foreboding darkness of The Wounded Kings, with the meditative, oriental disposition of Om and Bong - thickly entwined in singular aural mysticism and creativity that stimulates the imagination at all times. Conceptually driven by a deep-seated fascination with the ancient Middle East and an overall presentation that sustains a demand for deeper reflection, it's only natural and appropriate that ZAUM dubbed their music style 'Middle Eastern mantra doom'.

Abscess - Dawn Of Inhumanity - CD-Digi

The legendary Abscess hail from Oakland California and started life in 1994 with their very own brand of Sickodelia.
Chris Reifert and Danny Coralles were both previously in late 80s/early 90s top gore metal band Autopsy, and Chris started his career with the highly influential extreme metal band Death. 
Including special guest vocal appearances by the Darkthrone duo, this is twisted, dirty punk death without limits!
Cover artwork comes from top US artist Dennis Dread (Darkthrone, Autopsy), with booklet art courtesy of Chris Reifert himself. 'Dawn of Inhumanity' also marks the final release of Darkthrone's Tyrant Syndicate Productions, a sub-label of Peaceville Records.
