POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Between 2003-2007, RUNNING FOR COVER was the best kept secret in the Eastern time zone. Dialing in the density and frustration of bands like NO COMMENT and CAPITALIST CASUALTIES, and playing regional shows alongside bands like Iron Lung and Mind Eraser, they never failed to level the audience and the venue. Their 7" and full-length album are known by some to be high water marks of their chosen style, but their demo has remained unheard by all but the most devoted. Remixed in 2013 by the band and properly mastered for the 1st time, Painkiller presents their full, 2003 demo on a 12". For those not familiar, welcome to the cult. Members of RUNNING FOR COVER have also done time in GAS CHAMBER, SOLUTIONS, RESIST CONTROL, SLAVE STATE, DEAD LANGUAGE and others. Limited edition of 500 copies.

LP 14.50€*

 

PUNK-ROCK. Six songs to go with your six-pack of Steel Reserve. Dumb fun for aspiring nihilists abused with an electric bargain basement pogo beat and rudimental fuzz-riffery (ala THE SPITS, GG ALLIN, or METAL URBAIN) that push along such universal themes as "My job sucks", even gets apocalyptic on the way to the bathroom to puke. Limited to 500 copies.

7" 3.00€*

 

POST-ROCK. With THE RURAL ALBERTA ADVANTAGE's new album, the band further refines the exuberant guitar work; everything on the table singing; songwriting full of conviction and detail; and majestic, keyboard-sprinkled arrangements that have won it so many fans. Departing strings together themes of small towns, Canadian fall and winter, breakup, and redemption and serves as a companion piece to their beloved debut album "hometowns". The 180gr vinyl includes a MP3 download card.

INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK. With their latest album "blood year," RUSSIAN CIRCLES forsake the sonic crossroads of divergent musical paths found on albums like "guidance" and "memorial" to offer up the most direct and forceful collection of songs in their discography. In an age where rock records are often built on a computerized grid, RUSSIAN CIRCLES chose to track the foundations of the songs together in one room as complete takes without click tracks. While it retains the dexterity, multi-faceted techniques, and dramatic compositions that have been a trademark of RUSSIAN CIRCLES since day one, "blood year" fully embraces the most powerful aspects of the band's repertoire. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

LP 24.00€*

 

INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK. Chicago trio RUSSIAN CIRCLES return with not only their 4th and heaviest album to date - but also with "empros" they're poised to take the crown as innovators reinvigorating the staid trappings of genre. "empros" picks up where the anthemic riffs and melodies of "geneva" left off and injects evermore slithering rhythms amid skull-crushing heft with all the visceral intensity of GODFLESH, SWANS and NEUROSIS. Put simply, "empros" is RUSSIAN CIRCLES' master of reality: a radical revision of both heavy and melody that is monolithic in its clarity and perfection. Vinyl is housed in a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

LP 23.00€*

 

INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK. "enter", the debut release from Chicago's RUSSIAN CIRCLES is 6 songs clocking in at 44 min. and is purely instrumental. These songs travel from extreme to extreme, touching on technical melodic metal with brilliant, heavy riffs, while also exploring a softer, more mellow side of the band, yet still mixing things together very cohesively. Vinyl comes with a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

LP 24.50€*

 

INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK. With "geneva", RUSSIAN CIRCLES find themselves adding elements of strings and horns to a formula of instrumental heavy and textural rock that simultaneously utilizes burly riffs and light atmospherics with just the right amount of chaotic noise.

CD 14.50€*

 

INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK. With their 6th album "guidance", RUSSIAN CIRCLES carry on in their quest to conjure multi-dimensional dramatic instrumental narratives and to scout out new textures from their respective instruments. Songs aren't constructed out of highbrow concepts; they're forged out of gut instinct and base emotional response. They continue to examine the polarity of quiet and loud, complexity and simplicity, ugliness and beauty. Every RUSSIAN CIRCLES album has had its share of new sonic vistas, and "guidance" finds the band still searching out new sounds. RUSSIAN CIRCLES were able to capture this broad tonal palette and wide array of emotional motifs into a cohesive journey through the tumultuous corners of human existence. Vinyl is housed in a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

LP 24.50€*

 

INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK. Perhaps the most immediately apparent characteristic of the 5th RUSSIAN CIRCLES album, "memorial" is its wide range of emotion. As such, "memorial" almost feels like stages of grief. That notion might be aided by the album's clever structuring, in which it ends in the same place as it starts, and special guest vocalist CHELSEA WOLFE lending her hauntingly somber vocals to the album closing title track. RUSSIAN CIRCLES wisely and deftly sidestep the trappings of genre amalgamation. This record simultaneously channels influences from newer NEUROSIS, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, GODFLESH and CHELSEA WOLFE. Vinyl is housed in a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

PUNK-ROCK. RUSSIAN ROULETTES is an allstar bands which features members of DIGGER & THE PUSSYCATS, MOTORSPORT, THE SPECIMENS, KAMIKAZE TRIO, THE ACTIONEERS and SWEARJAR. What do these bands all have in common? Agostino Soldati bangs his vintage drum kit with a fury rarely seen in this town. Sam Agostino screams and scratches his guitar like a possessed demon and Tim Wold pounds his bass guitar into submission! "r'n'r" is limited to 500 copies!

LP 13.50€*

 

STREET-PUNK. Australia's veteran street-punk rock 'n' rollers RUST is back with yet another amazing 7". Formed way back in 2005 and featuring members of some of Australia's most prominent past and present punk-rock bands ensures that this band has no shortage of talent, aggression, passion and experience. If you dont like your music hard, fast and rough around the edges, then this ain't for you. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

7" 6.50€*

 

MELODIC-HARDCORE. With members of DEAD HEARTS, DAGGERMOUTH and GET BACK UP in tow, Buffalo's RUST BELT LIGHTS follow the path of melodic, poppy hardcore blazed by SET YOUR GOALS, POLAR BEAR CLUB, LIFETIME and NEW FOUND GLORY on this debut 7". Limited to 500 copies ever all on color vinyl.

7"col 5.00€*

 

PROGRESSIVE-METAL. Arkansas backwoods doomsayers RWAKE awaken from their slumber and unleash their long-awaited 2011 album "rest". Their 1st new material in over 4 years, "rest" is less a set of songs than a perpetually evolving, deeply emotional set of missives heralding the end of times. "rest" is nothing short of epic, and one of 2011's most crushing progressive/doom/sludge releases.

DoLPcol 23.00€*

 

HARDCORE-PUNK. The RYTMIHÄIRIÖ debut album turned 20 this year, so it's high time to reissue it on vinyl! The Svart edition features all the original artwork, but it's not a facsimile reproduction - instead, they're expanded it to a gatefold version and added a big 8 page booklet with unseen photos, all the lyrics plus liner notes.

LP 15.00€*

 

FOLK/INDIE-ROCK. The debut album from SEAN CAREY "all we grow", is the result of a young lifetime spent immersed in music. As a band member of BON IVER from the very beginning, SEAN CAREY witnessed a flip of his formal training to step firmly into a worldwide-touring rock band. "all we grow" is a convergence of Carey's WALTZ FOR DEBBY-era, and traditional rock band experience, taking leads from TALK TALK. "all we grow" is a classic album born without expectation and met with adoration - a cathartic result of CAREY's extraordinary and vibrant life experiences. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
