PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. Expressionistic, sophisticated, evolved, overflowing, pitch-black. Just a few words, a desperate attempt to properly approach "animale(s)", the 5th full-length record of the French combo CELESTE from Lyon. The concept behind the album is the bleak story of a boy and a girl, a kind of love story with a tragic ending. A story about how tough youth can be if parents discard their responsibilities. Musically, "animele(s) sees CELESTE developing their metal and hardcore oriented sound in different directions. CELESTE truly managed to finish this double album at the right moment, before the amount of concept, composition and artistic skill would have been too much for a single album. Simply put, it is just perfect. For fans of: (early) CULT OF LUNA, NEUROSIS, AMENRA, YEAR OF NO LIGHT.

PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. CELESTE wrote a heavier, better, darker full-lenght than the last time and in this context they enhanced their unique, incomparable sound with new elements like samples. They experimented for the 1st time with guest musicians plus used new instruments like piano and strings. And it fits amazingly - of course they also created a new level of denseness in their sound; definitely on of the best and most unique bands of today. Limited reissue on colored vinyl of the 3rd full-length of the cult outfit from France.

PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. Denovali offers CELESTE's very 1st full-album "nihiliste(s)" again as a reissue with a new packaging and a slightly different design. From black-metal to sludge, from doom to posthardcore - the people love them because they're not copycats - they're not trying to exhaust any genre clichés - they're simply creating their own dark soundscapes with every new record. The result is pure hopelessness and distress.

HARDCORE/GRINDCORE. What happens if a plant acquires the knowledge of man? Can the evils of humanity sustain life? CELL ROT digs into these questions with 3 songs of nightmare fueled hardcore. The perfect sound track for environmental collapse. WORLD PEACE's low end violence exploring the relationship between man and the god he has created. Four tracks in under 3min. World fucking peace.

HARDCORE-PUNK. Get in on the crumbling ground floor with the debut 7" from Richmond's own CEMENT SHOES. Following a promising 2017 demo, the SHOES turn in 2 fresh cuts on this 45. Furiously scratching away at the ever-underwhelming state of contemporary hardcore-punk, the principle songwriters of BROWN SUGAR, FRIED EGG, and HAIRCUT intervene to bring us a robust and epic pairing of tracks. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE-PUNK. Richmond's CEMENT SHOES lay down 8 tracks on, "too", their debut album. If you're new to Da SHOES, their debut 7" on Feel It in 2018 left both reviewers and punk/hardcore millenials utterly confused and divided. Well, it's 2019 now and the world hasn't changed one degree for the better! Thankfully, CEMENT SHOES have returned to drive the point home with their finest-and-fullest-sounding record yet. The SHOES are truly cooking with gas now, bringing the best elements of snappy '80s hardcore-punk and '70s hard-rock to sonic fruition, with the necessary tongue-in-cheek sense of humor intact. "too" presents itself as a sonic rendezvous where the '83 LA cast of punkers from "suburbia", "funhouse" era STOOGES, TOTALITÄR, and CIDER are all invited. A smoldering effigy to the way rock music used to simply exist and excite, and a shining example of where the unlimited data of the aughts can actually be stretched.

POST-PUNK. Following a cult-classic demo and subsequent vinyl reissue via Mass Media, Chicago/NYC’s CEMETERY have returned to both recorded format and live shows with a vengeance. Its been a few years since many musicians versed in punk and hardcore’s energy and ethos have been delving in the dark arts of post-punk and death-rock ,revitalising a genre that since the '90s has been cursed with overproduction and lackluster theatrics. CEMETERY, along with BELLICOSE MINDS, SPECTERS and ARCTIC FLOWERS are at the forefront of this movement. More melodic post-punk influences shine through this time around most notably that of the CHAMELEONS (whom are covered). Here is the sound of its rebirth, and death-rock sounds more dead than ever. Vinyl includes a digitial download card.

BLACK-METAL. Vile piss soaked black-metal from the scummiest alleyways of Baltimore, Maryland. Relentless blast beats and guitars provide the blackened backdrop for this macabre tale. This 7" is fucking nuts, don't miss out.

HARDCORE. This full-length by CENTURIES compiles 13 agressive smasher from their previous 7"s. This is angry in-your-face hardcore with a modern blackened-hardcore hint. This record features all songs they have recorded so far inclusive 4 brand new songs! Vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE. Busting out with an emotive, punk-influenced style of dark hardcore with elements of explosive, d-beat persuasions, CENTURIES will perk the ears up of fans of comparable Southern Lord bands like BAPTISTS, HEARTLESS and NAILS. Their debut album, "taedium vitae", is a relentless barrage of abrasive, blackened, emotive hardcore played with extreme intensity.

HARDCORE. Formed in 2008 in South Florida, CENTURIES current lineup now includes members based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Nashville, Tennessee, and in the UK from Manchester. Since their 2013 debut "taedium vitae", the group have refined their sound into something more focused, and intense, and "the lights of this earth are blinding" surges with 10 tracks of the band's harrowing, metallic, crust-influenced hardcore, delivered with a calculated, very deliberate approach.

POP/POST-ROCK. CENTURY PALM's debut album, "meet you!, was recorded by the band in Toronto. "meet you" is 10 songs about getting to know another layer of yourself - even when you think you know yourself. Musically, CENTURY PALM crib shamelessly from WIRE, NEU!, and Eno-era ROXY MUSIC, modern Australian bands like TOTAL CONTROL, and failed experiments from earlier, abandoned projects. Many instances of droning synths ruining perfectly nice pop songs. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

POP/POST-ROCK. Not content to simply combine influences, Toronto, Canada's CENTURY PALM slither effortlessly across genre boundaries, drawing upon myriad times and places. SIMPLE MINDS, THE UNITS, NEU!, WIRE, BRIAN ENO's pop records and contemporary sounds from the Australian garage-rock subterrain all come to mind. CENTURY PAQLM frequently employs minimal but propulsive rhythms in service of intoxicating melodies. Songs shiver, pulsate and glisten, losing none of the essential energy of band members' previous projects while adding new worlds of texture and feeling. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-PUNK. CEREMONY makes their Relapse Records' debut with their highly ambitious, new album. The move suggests that CEREMONY are returning to their hardcore roots, but even though "in the spirit world now" is much more energetic than the languid tenor of 2015's "the l-shaped man", this most assuredly isn’t hardcore. There’s still a sonic heft to the album, but the guitars are largely replaced with washes of synthesizer. Like everything they’ve ever done, it takes a few listens for that to truly reveal itself. The album marks a milestone for this Northern California punk outfit who has stayed true to themselves as songwriters throughout massive sonic growth during their storied career. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-HARDCORE. "rohnert park" is the 3rd album by Bay-Area's CEREMONY, originally released in 2013. Named after a town in California that the band grew up in, "rohnert park" showcases CEREMONY at their finest as they mix influences like BLACK FLAG, CIRCLE JERKS and early FUCKED UP and even some THE STOOGES hints to present their best material yet. This album is equal parts aggressive, incendiary and, catchy. Don't let that fool you, though; CEREMONY's trademark pissed off hardcore-punk stomp is apparent on "rohnert park" - noisy, dynamic and most importantly, impressive. Colored (purple) vimnyl includes a digital download card.
