false xmas (2011/KATORGA WORKS)
POST-PUNK/NEW-WAVE. [reduced price] ( ) is the vinyl debut of MERCHANDISE's David Vassalotti's pet project. How do you pronounce it? "false xmas" was originally released as a seldom-heard tape on Cult Maternal, but now the 2 tracks found its way on vinyl. This particular ( ) record finds David channeling NEW ORDER through a more lo-fi lens with even worse vocals reciting emotionally devastating prose. These 2 songs make up what is a perfect pop single. The band is called "( )" or "parenthesis".

s/t (2016/GIVE PRAISE)
PROGRESSIVE-METAL. 100 YEARS from Sweden, take and form several genres into one unique dose of death-metal, folk-punk, noise and crust. This unique congregation, housing members from the legendary death-metal pioneering and ground breaking band MERCILESS as well as one of Sweden's most influential and esteemed acts DIA PSALMA, is one of the most interesting bands to come out of Sweden at the moment. What they do is borrow from all of these and create a challenging form of progressive metal. The band cites their influences as: SWANS, KILLING JOKE, NEUROSIS, CELTIC FROST, VOIVOD - but they clearly stand out on their own as the album will make you believe.

16 BLAARE UTAN HJÄRNA
vi ska ga till botten med det här (2016/POWER IT UP)
HARDCORE. 16 B.U.H., a raging mad hardcore band, was formed in 1986 in a small Swedish town called Tranas by members of RÖVSETT and REARESPIRATOR. Following a couple of demo's, in 1989 the guys recorded their debut album, which wasn't released back in the day. Now fans of blistering fast hardcore in the veins of MOB 47, G-ÄNX should take notice - with lethal melodies and shouted, angry vocals can rejoyce afterall, as the album gets released after all. Better late than never!
OI/STREET-PUNK.

Hot on the heels of releases by the likes of Crown Court, Last Crusade and No Parole, this is sure to be another hot release, so grab a copy of this limited edition 7" before it's too late.

3 INCHES OF BLOOD
here waits thy doom (2013/WAR ON MUSIC)
METAL. "here waits thy doom" is the 4th album from the Canadian traditional heavy-metal heroes. "here waits thy doom" journeys even farther back into the realms of retro, reaching deep into the darkerst lairs of late '70s hard-rock and proto-metal. The result is a flawless onslaught of punishing, epic tracks with untouchable soaring highs and endless priceless licks. Now available on vinyl; repackaged in a heavy gatefold-jacket with brand new exclusive artwork.
the days and nights of everything anywhere (2007/POLYVINYL)
INDIE/POST-ROCK. The best music is always truly indefinable. Portland, Oregon's prolific 31KNOTS have described their sound as "post-apocalyptic vaudevillian punk", and while that's an apt description, it doesn't begin to express the level of demented-pop brilliance on the band's latest full-length, "the days and nights of everything anywhere. From the stuttering sequenced intro of the opener to the airy ambient ending of the closer, "the days and nights of everything anywhere" is the complete realization of the sound 31KNOTS have been working toward for the last 9 years.
trump harm (2011/POLYVINYL)
INDIE/POST-ROCK. In a day and age in which bands are exalted, obsessed over, and then forgotten as quickly as a web page can be refreshed, creating consistently adventurous and exciting albums for over a decade is no small feat. Moving into their 7th full-length, "trump harm", 31KNOTS are a living testament to the advantages of staying true to yourself over fleeting flash-in-the-pan glamour in an age of instant gratification. More than anything else, the sound of "trump harm" is yet another fresh take on the band’s unique brand of jagged yet melodic, gritty yet graceful, grandiose punk-rock. 31KNOTS executes each teetering musical jerk and halt and subsequent somersault with jawdropping agility. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
