ORIGINAL THREE, THE
been dealt a losing hand (2006/P. TRASH)
GARAGE-PUNK. This Memphis based trio, founded by BLACK LIP's guitar player Ian, creates its minimalistic, yet damn catchy and melodic garage-punk by using the classic OBLIVIANS ingredients: Two guitars, grooving CRAMPS-like drums, a slightly distorted and snappy voice and a swampy Memphis feeling. The majority of these 9 songs range in a slower sector with cheap driving guitar leads and a drifting groove. All LPs come in a silkscreened cover!
livandi oyda (2009/ICI D'AILLEURS)
AMBIENT/NOISE/POST-ROCK. "livandi oyda" is ORKA'S debut full-length. All instruments heard on the record were built during Christmas 2005 by Jens, family and friends using scrap material and power tools found at their farm.

As well as the original live material, the record features remixes by THE THIRD EYE FOUNDATION, BOOKWORMS, OKTOPUS/DEADVERSE, and COM-DATA. CD release comes with a DVD which features 2 music videos, 2 live videos, from the concert New Year’s Eve 2005 and a short documentary explaining how the instruments were made.
the serpent stirs (2013/NARS)
SLUDGE/DOOM-METAL. ORTEGA Ortega is a four-piece sludge/doom collective from the north of Netherlands. The sound is described as dark metal balanced with spheric soundscapes together with slow and heavy riffs. ORTEGA returns with their longest output so far, clocking over 18min. of psychedelic doom. "the serpent stirs" is a sonic voyage. A trial of battles with inner demons, which binds us in our mind. This release is a one-sided LP with a great etching on the b-side. Total pressing of 300 colored records.
DOOM-METAL. Spain heavy avant-doom masters ORTHODOX' 4th album, back to the roots, a heavy-metal album in the heavy tradition. The new ORTHODOX album moves again towards a search of spirituality and the sense of innovation that is part of their music. The album is composed by 5 tracks in which the band shows the improvements of the experience gained in their previous recordings. The band explores its roots to leave behind the search for alterations in their musical language and the emerging psychedelic and progressive atmospheres that appeared in their previous work "sentencia". ORTHODOX stills a long way on the path of musical experimentation and research. Special limited vinyl release - 180gr vinyl with printed inner-sleeves.
DOOM. One of the few European doom bands to get the Southern Lord "two thumbs up", Spain's ORTHODOX are back with their 3rd full-length called "entencia". The LP comes in a beautiful gatefold, with debossing on cover, printed inner sleeve. "sentencia" is another jumb in the sense of the evolution for a band like ORTHODOX. With an instrumentation closer to jazz than ever before, the album is best example of the music progression the band always wanted to show, from their unique heavy-metal perspective, and particular vision of the traditional andalusian music has to be performed in their own repertoire. This is one of the most original, sophisticated and downright beautiful doom albums ever!
we will never change (2014/GIVE PRAISE)
GRINDCORE. Unrelenting and pulverizing grindcore from Canada. Features members of MASS GRAVE. Fast and slow where it needs to be. Headbanging unforgiving grindcore - blasting anthems that pretty much solidify the fast forward grindcore world. Even throwing in some catchy breaks to circle pit with. OSK have shared records with THE AFTERNOON GENTLEMEN, ROSKOPP, WARHERO.
demo (2011/KING OF THE MONSTERS)
HARDCORE. Featuring vocals by Frank Hanney of MK-ULTRA and FOURTEEN OR FIGHT, this short-lived Arizona band's demo was limited to 100 copies and disappeared almost as fast as they did. This 7" collects all 3 songs from the demo, housed in a die-cut sleeve. The 2 a-side tracks are mid-tempo and melodic with screamed vocals and a bit of a rock 'n' roll tip while the b-side is a bit '90s screamo akin to PORTRAITS OF PAST.

Intense lyrical content that will remind you that there is punk who still cares about the place and time they live in. Comes with a 12 page booklet and housed in silk-screened recycled covers.
the place to bleed (2008/FIENDFORCE)
PUNK-ROCK. Nothing much needs to be said about Europe’s # 1 horror-punk band THE OTHER. "the place to bleed" is another stormer of a release from THE OTHER. Good solid production and yet more great songs. This 3rd full-length shows that the band has progressed and has more hit-potential today, than ever before, while still remaining truly scary. They have a variety of different styles mixed with their songs, but they still manage to keep it fast! If you like BLITZKID, of course THE MISFITS you will like THE OTHER, too!

a heated display (2013/PAINKILLER)
HARDCORE. The final recordings from OUT COLD. These tracks were begun in 2005 shortly after the release of their "goodbye cruel world" album, but after a long and tumultuous ride, were not finished until 2012. After the untimely passing of long-time singer Mark Sheehan, the master tapes fell to the wayside, presumed to be lost. The session was rescued from the abyss and Kevin Mertens, who sang on the very 1st OUT COLD album from '94, was brought in to record vocals on this platter, yet completing another OUT COLD album of pure blistering hardcore. Half of the session's 28 tracks are represented here - 14 songs - in the typical no-frills hardcore fashion that OUT COLD perfected over their career.
