HER NAME IS CALLA
the quiet lamb (2010/DENOVALI)
POST-ROCK. HER NAME IS CALLA return this year with a new full-length album named "the quiet lamb". The album sees the band fully immersed into their song writing, making clear steps forward from their highly acclaimed previous album "the heritage". HER NAME IS CALLA are known for their impressive live shows full of emotion, explosions of noise and passages of the quietest, most gentle harmonies. Based around as core unit of 5 members, the band wields a multitude of instruments, from drums and guitar to recorders and synthesis, from violin and trombone to vocals and harmonica. The resulting sound is dense but controlled. Stretched over the course of 75 min., the new album finds the band at their most passionate to date taking the listener through a journey of ten songs, each one a part of a whole.

naen punaista (2012/LA FAMILIA)
HARDCORE. The hardcore maniacs HERÄTYS are back to say good-bye and fuck-off. After their ripping debut full-length and killer 7" they keep it up and bring you 7 more ragers on this slab ob vinyl. Sadly the show, together with Seein' Red was also their last live appearance but on vinyl you can get a last fix of this absolute Scandinavian hardcore superiority.
s/t (2012/LA FAMILIA)
HARDCORE. HERÄTYS were one of the top bands playing the new wave of Swedish hardcore. Musically we’re talking raging swedish raw-punk in the same vein as TOTALITÄR, with finnish vocals. A truly brilliant record that holds all the energy, dirt, anger, sincerity… really everything. This is a true testimonial that you don’t need a huge thundering sound to make a powerful record – it’s all in the material. The band consists of members from bands such as FY FAN, UNKIND, SKITKIDS, and SCUMBRIGADE. Re-press on La Familia Records
DOOM/SLUDGE/STONER. HERDER became an often mentioned band in the world of underground, extreme music with their self titled debut album. Delivering a furious mix of stoner, doom and sludge all based on the insane riffing. With "gods" HERDER is taking another big step forward with an even darker and heavier sound than on their previous work. The songs show more depth and have a more sinister feel without losing the in-your-face brutality the band became famous for. HERDER is a band that doesn’t need much words and "gods" is the new chapter in the dark, evil and fucked up loudness that is HERDER! The viny comes in a deluxe gatefold, reverse side print, gatefold sleeve.
horror vacui (2012/REFLECTIONS)
DOOM/SLUDGE/STONER. The possible survivors of the smoldering crater that the HERDER debut album left after impact, are now completely finished off with a furious deathstab to the neck. No mercy, no positivity, no sobriety. Only the strong will be left standing, the rest will have their throats ripped out. Filth ridden bass, crushing triple guitars, thunderous hammering drums and genuinely pissed off vocals lay down the soundtrack for prison shanking, bar brawls, heavy smoking and lizard night drives at high speed! Lock up your wives, daughters, and well, your dogs too just to be sure. "horror vacui" is the new weapon against human morale and it fucking destroys! There's no stopping now: HERDER is harder! Limited edition of 666 copies.
SLUDGE/DOOM-HARDCORE. Coming in a stabhappy frenzy from the Westereen, the devotion to the HERDER knives was only natural and instinctive and so was the passion for heavy as fuck drinking! Relentless pounding stoner, doom with a sludgy vibe was created to wreak havoc upon mankind's feeble outcasts and Lotharios: with past/present members of DR.DOOM, RUSH 'N' ATTACK, OMISSION, URFAUST etc., you know you are into something furious and fucked up beyond recognition. For fans of EYEHATEGOD, HIGH ON FIRE, NAILS and BUZZOVEN.
s/t (2009/FASHIONABLE IDIOTS)
HARDCORE. On this self-titled LP, HERDS are thick, thundering and mired in the strength of earth's natural forces. HERDS relate - both sonically and lyrically - the feelings of deep, hostile waters, the iron-willed journey of a lung-spent animal and the hematite wonder of a singed new world. The clarity of vision and the singular purpose of this release leaves the listener awake at night, watching treelimbs for some kind of sign. Members of CHARLES BRONSON, GET RAD, THREATENER and more. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
HERE COMES TROUBLE
get fucked (2008/SICK THOUGHT)
HARDCORE. HERE COMES TROUBLE exploding out of Texas and have been in tons of rad bands. They're playing fast, in-your-face, nihilistic '80s hardcore that despises everything expected in the modern-hardcore scene... - no apologies, no compromising, no fucking way! They got alot of attention for their over-the-top stage charisma and this 7" will show you what you missed out on.
HERE WE GO MAGIC
a different ship (2012/SECRETLY CANADIAN)
POST-ROCK. HERE WE GO MAGIC's sophomore album, "pigeons", had only been out a few weeks when the seeds for "a different ship" were planted. The New York band turning album tracks into intricately groovy sonic explorations where the band seemed almost synchronously possessed. "a different ship" is HERE WE GO MAGIC's most remarkable and captivating album yet, with an emotional and musical arc that is alternately calming and anxiety-inducing, and often both at once. A lot of the endings of these songs just kind of stop, like things are left suspended, floating in space. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
20 reasons to end it all (2007/BOSS TUNEAGE)
HARDCORE. Available again by popular demand on vinyl! "20 reasons to end it all" is the 3rd and final part of the HERESY discography.

In essence, this release is an absolute must for any fan of HERESY or UK Hardcore!
face up to it (2010/BOSS TUNEAGE)
HARDCORE. HERESY are one of the most influential UK hardcore bands ever to exist. From mid`90s the band were one of the leading lights of the rapidly expanding UK scene. HERESY's back catalogue has been totally re-mastered by Kalv Piper and Steve Baz Ballam from the band and "face up to it" is the 2nd of a trilogy of discographies. This was the bands one and only album of which over 10000 copies were pressed and sold throughout the world upon its original release in 1988. The album is almost unrecognizable from the original in its new, digitally re-mastered version sounding a hundred times better than it ever has done before and the best it will ever sound!
