SLUDGE-METAL. "IV" is the 4th release from this outstanding sludgecore outfit - and they're getting better from release to release. HAGGATHA "II" and "III" was very different! "II" was more slow, in the veins of THOU and "III" was more into the EYEHATEGOD vibes. "IV" is the perfect mix of both - very slow with some killer riffs!! This is without doubt a masterpiece of sludge! Vinyl is housed in a gatefold-sleeve, comes with 16 page booklet.

LP 7.50€*

 

SLUDGE-METAL. HAGGATHA excavate primordial doom from deep beneath the Earth’s crust, conjuring some lamentable ancient devastation. Desperate, ruinous sludge from a cataclysmic prehistory that claws it’s way back into the folds of the reptile consciousness in a torrent of hopeless murk. Vancouver’s enduring traffickers of sludge defilement return with their 3rd full-length album and 5th solo release, appropriately titled "V". Six tracks of churning riff demolition clocking in at almost 40min. in a sleek package that continues the core aesthetic of the band emblem, this time in a black on black motif utilizing a spot gloss uv print. Current and ex-members of BISON BC, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, GOATSBLOOD and OSK.

POST-HARDCORE/METALCORE. HAIL THE SUN formed in 2009 in California. "culture scars" is HHAIL THE SUN's thought-provoking, 3rd full-length. There is no doubt of where HAIL THE SUN’s roots lie. Their frantic post-hardcore styling bleeds through their blistering talent, re-positioning the likes of ALESANA, CHIODOS and other bands that dominated the 2000s into the forefront of listeners minds. The 10-track album offers a dark mix of personal reflection and social commentary, exploring the relationships between observation vs. action and perception vs. reality - and the effect of each on human emotion and society as a whole. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-HARDCORE/METALCORE. Sonically, "mental knife" is the closest the band has come to realizing the sound they've sought since forming in 2009. The band lived largely in the same creative space for this record as they did on its predecessors - "culture scars" (2016) and "secret wars" (2017). However, all 4 members of the band have elevated their already impressive style of play on "mental knife" - pushing the limit of what is capable when walking the delicate line between intricate song arrangements and massive riffs and thundering rhythms. Thick 180gr vinyl includes a digital download card.

Four tracks of pummeling hardcore-punk that retain the velocity and ferocity of the band's previous output whilst adding a decisive dose of meat and potatoes to the sonic formula, all the while Juliana belts out lyrics in both Spanish and English at a feverish pace. Each record comes in a glue-pocket sleeve.

POP/INDIE-PUNK. New Bedford's HALF HEARTED HERO refuses to fold under the weight of the responsibilities and pressures that come with adulthood. Instead, determined to continue, they started over. "isn't real" is a true album, tied together by a consistent energy and voice. Where 2013's "whatever" and 2011's "running water" were more aggressive, relying on speed and heaviness, "isn't real" displays the band in a more refined manner. There are still high-energy passages full of driving drums and huge distorted guitars that suggest influences from POLAR BEAR CLUB. As "isn't real" progresses, nods to bands like SAVES THE DAY and MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK emerge. Colored vinyl is limited to 500 copies and includes a digital download card.

DOOM-METAL. BATILLUS a band comprised of members of bands such as A STORM OF LIGHT and INSWARM takes extreme doom to the extreme. The 3 installments by BATILLUS are epic and psychedelic doom inspired tracks, they have megaton weighted riffs, an almost ISIS and MINSK atmosphere in areas that is equal parts dense and melodic, and a great variation of tempos. HALLOWED BUTCHERY is a solo prog-doom project masterfully pulled off by Ryan Scott Fairfield makes up the last portion of this split with his ambitious and brilliant “coffin life”. The track starts out in a compressed almost NEUROSIS style slow and funereal sludge and doom riff assault complete with great bluesy riffs and solo bits thrown in that scream '70s doom groove. Essential for fans of MINSK, MOUTH OF THE ARCHITECT, NEUROSIS etc.. A colossal and sophisticated dark and psychedelic/black/doom influenced masterpiece!

HARDCORE. Formed in Copenhagen, Denmark only 2 years ago, the riotous, young act, HALSHUG, unloads some of the most traditionally-styled crust d-beat hardcore to be found. The enraged sentiment of archetypal leaders of the genre, DOOM, ANTI-CIMEX and, no doubt, DISCHARGE, and direct influence from INFERNOH, HOAX and DEATH TOKEN are unapologetically present. This, fueled by society's modern-day ills, finds HALSHUG already in line with NUCLEAR DEATH TERROR, WOLFBRIGADE, SKITSYSTEM and the best of the movement's current top acts.

LP 20.00€*

 

HARDCORE. Copenhagen, Denmark-based trio HALSHUG released their 3rd studio full-length.
