s/t (2010/(KAPITÄN PLATTE)
POST-ROCK. INSTRUMENT is a Munich based post-rock band. They formed out of the ashes of COSMIC CASINO. On their self-titled debut they serve 9 fantastic tracks. Soundwise it's a beautiful mixture of OCEANSIZE post-rock and MOTORPSYCHO psycho-prog-rock. This is an album that explores every emotion, sweeping the listener up in its beauty, its wholeness, and its musical greatness. The limited to 600 copies DoLP is hand-numbered and comes with a bonustrack, a nice silk-screen cover and a MP3 download code.
the cure for the truth (2009/VENDETTA)
DOOM-HARDCORE. Finally coming up with their 1st full-length, this multicultural band creates an ugly bastard of BLACK SABBATH metal, hardcore and sample-loaded atmospherical noise passages. Sheer heavy riffs, punishing drums and stomach-deep bass-humming over which a tortured female voice expresses both hate and desperation roll slowly, but unstoppable towards the overwhelmed listener. Just as KYLESA are leaving their path with their recent album, INSUICIETY are ready to take over the crown of heavy tribal punk - or in other words: imagine "souls at zero"-era NEUROSIS meets DAMAD. Comes with superb foldout-cover.
7th revelation: beyond the realm of the vvitch (2014/A389)

Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

systems overload (2013/ORGANIZED CRIME)
HARDCORE/METAL. Originally released in 1995, "systems overload" was a shock to the hardcore scene that was focused more on politically correct ideas than the sheer brutality of the music.

systems overload (orr/a2 mix) (2013/ORGANIZED CRIME/MAGIC BULLET)
HARDCORE/METAL. Originally released in 1995, "systems overload" was a shock to the hardcore scene that was focused more on politically correct ideas than the sheer brutality of the music.

the blackest curse (2015/DEATHWISH)
HARDCORE/METAL. A ten-headed beast of an album, "the blackest curse" is arguably the most cohesive INTEGRITY release of the last 15 years. With the 1st crushing chords it's apparent that INTEGRITY is back in true form, following the metal/hardcore hybrid blueprint they forged themselves over two decades ago. Their formulaic cohesive vision is why "the blackest curse" is truly another brilliant album, adding to their intriguing and bizarre legacy. Second pressing on grey vinyl includes a digital download card.
those who fear tomorrow (2013/ORGANIZED CRIME)
HARDCORE/METAL. From the opening line of "those who fear tomorrow" INTEGRITY devastated any presupposed notions you may have had about hardcore or who they were.

This stunning album will be released with the full, original cover art as well as expanded layout by INTEGRITY vocalist Dwid Hellion. Colored vinyl comes with poster, gatefold-sleeve and includes a digital download card.
to die for (2010/A389/DEATHWISH)
HARDCORE/METAL. INTEGRITY have been a band surrounded by myth, controversy, and legend for nearly 2 decades. "to die for" is a true reclamation of the hardcore throne for Integrity. Produced and engineered by Ben Schigel (RINGWORM, CHIMAIRA), "to die for" is a collection of 8 blood boiling songs that serve as musical progression for the band all the while embracing the approach of their influential past. An apocalyptic fusion of metallic ferocity and hardcore brutality.
