HARDCORE/METALCORE. "lapsed requiems" is a collaborative split from Connecticut natives CAST IN BLOOD and Delaware's FOREIGN HANDS. The 4-track 10" was born out of a mutual appreciation for each other's chaotic, '90s-style metalcore. The pairing fits well with their start-and-stop riffing while expertly building off of the contrasts they each create within their own songs. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

EMO/MELODIC-HARDCORE. Its the year 2007: after 13 years the US post-hardcore legends BOYSETSFIRE announce their break up. Shortly after the last show singer Nathan begins to write songs at home on his acoustic guitar, planning to release those stripped down anthems as his debut solo. Musically the 8 song demo is the perfect combination of Gray's original acoustic ideas, the melancholic emocore of his heroes SAMIAM and the keyboard driven power-pop of the later THE GET UP KIDS. Three years, 2 full-lenghts and several succesful tours later THE CASTING OUT finally call it quits when Gray's old band BOYSETSFIRE decide to reunite in 2010.

PUNK-ROCK. CASUAL BURN is a femme-fronted punk-rock band from the swamps of New Orleans. Their debut full-length, "mean thing," is a haunting punk-rock stomp with goth and surf undertones, sludgy downshifts, and a few noisy freak-outs. Catchy melodies and strong songwriting chops contrast with the blown-out garage vibe of an '80s punk record. Vinyl is limited to 511 copies and includes a digital download card.

POST/NOISE-PUNK. CASUAL HEX is a three-piece formed in Seattle, in 2015. Drawing influence from a variety of genres (post-punk, no-wave, noise-rock), The band relies on the contrast of heavy, catchy, minimal, and dissonant. It’s difficult to draw a direct lineage, but flashes of PYLON, THE CONTORTIONS or early SONIC YOUTH come to mind. Erica’s voice is a commanding narration, stern in delivery. Clocking in at 21min., "zig zag lady illusion" is as much of a full-length as you’re gonna get with most songs not even hitting the 2min. mark. Limited edition of 300 copies.

POST-PUNK. CAT PARTY exist in the delicate space between 2 genres, specifically punk and post-punk. Somebody described them as a hybrid of early JOY DIVISION and early T.S.O.L.. But CAT PARTY is much more than a shallow imitation of that 1981 sound - and they’ve managed to avoid all the cliché pitfalls that have sunk the countless other bands who’ve tried to straddle this sound. That means no lyrics about hanging out in a graveyard, no extended synth explorations and no naive drama. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-ROCK. In a way, "scintilla" – the album – is CATACOMBE’s 1st. With its renewed sound – redefining post-rock with deeper harmonies and hypnotic, unpredictable rhythms – there are heartwarming breaches of light cutting through the massive walls of sound. There are echoes of suspending melodies, side by side with vigorous, evolving landscapes. There’s light and obscurity dwelling in deep resonance, inviting us to self-redefinition. The light, or the dawn. The morning star, the same one that is given to those who triumph. And, needless to say, "scintilla" – and CATACOMBE – have triumphed. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE. The 2nd 7" from THE CATBULGARS this year and definitely a step up from the 1st one recording wise which can be nice and not nice depending on your taste if you like clean recordings or lo-fi but rest assured the playing is still sloppy and punk. The influence of STOOGES, DEAD BOYS, RAMONES and BLACK FLAG is still here like the 1st one but they also add a slight UK influence too on this one and yes the lyrics are still as 'dumb' as ever. 5 originals and a ZEROS cover, comes with a nice booklet cover. Other bands they could be compared to are the TRANZMITORS or the BRUTAL KNIGHTS.

DOOM-METAL. Limited edition double LP on 180gr vinyl with gatefold-sleeve and LP sized booklet. As with a choice few truly great bands, the 1st self-financed cassette recording by CATHEDRAL - made in october 1990 - was a pioneering underground masterpiece in its own right; the sound of a young band exploring its newfound chemistry, finding confident variations on a flawless list of influences and cultivating a sound and style that would prove hugely inspirational throughout the 1990s and beyond. Where most demos are little more than a dry run for the 1st album, "in memoriam" still has its own distinct and important identity in the CATHEDRAL canon.

DOOM-METAL. The last Cathedral album ever! Born in the dying days of Thatcher's Britain, bonding over then-unfashionable, obscure names like ST. VITUS, PENTAGRAM, TROUBLE, CATHEDRAL's sole ambition was to record a demo tape. In fact they revolutionised doom-metal, 1st pushing their influences into new avenues of grinding extremity, then pioneering groovier forms of '70s-indebted stoner, doom. So when news came that CATHEDRAL really were approaching the Endtyme, it was a shock. This is the album CATHEDRAL been waiting to do since "forest of equilibrium", it almost feels like they made their 2nd album last in some respects. They actually recorded a lot more material but decided to sacrifice many of the tracks to make the overall album feel more complete in its nihilism. Clearly there was new impetus for reconnecting with that early spirit of doleful abjection, of sinister obsessions and lamented desires; on "the last spire" CATHEDRAL are literally doomed.

GRINDCORE/CRUST-HARDCORRE. What a perfect pairing here. Denever heavyweight grindcore veterans go up against Seattle's doom laden crust-grinders!

POST-PUNK-ROCK. CATHOLIC SPIT - A Pact With The Devil LP Southern California’s CATHOLIC SPIT is kind of like 45 GRAVE's and T.S.O.L's long forgotten baby with a healthy dose of tempo changes, female vocals and spite. Flanged guitars spit mighty menacing riffage and bouncing, gloomy bass strumming seeps through each of the 7 song. Vinyl includes a huge booklet and a digital download card.

LP 14.50€*

 

INDIE-POP. CATS ON FIRE, return with their 3rd full-length album "all blackshirts to me". Amongst the acutely political lyrical observations from the singer Mattias, "all blackshirts to me" reveals a more adventurous approach. Ville Hopponen brings quirk and soul with his multi-instrumentalist wizardry and Mattias even dares to let a few synthesized sounds into the mix, lightening up their previously rather rigorous acoustic dogmas. "all blackshirts to me" is by far the richest sounding CATS ON FIRE album yet.

INDIE-POP. CATS ON FIRE maybe from Finland, but their modus operandi resembles that of their Swedish neighbours indie scene, in the way that country has become a virtual conveyor belt of inventively jangly, lovelorn, fundamentally exciting guitar pop. In CATS ON FIRE’s case the influence of the SMITHS, ORANGE JUICE or just your favorite pop album, where every single song is so good that it would be hard to decipher which song on the album was meant as the single. You won’t be able to find a throwaway track here, which is an oddity in this year’s music output.

GRINDCORE. The 3rd Metal Blade Records release and 4th overall from grind purveyors CATTLE DECAPITATION was originally released in 2006, and is one of the most diverse albums from the band. This has laid the framework for "karma bloody karma", the most nihilistic, pessimistic and hateful record CATTLE DECAPITATION has ever done. The album features guest appearances by Joey Karam (The Locust), John Wiese (Bastard Noise).

GRINDCORE/DEATH-METAL. Hard to believe it's been 12 years since CATTLE DECAPITATION debuted on Metal Blade Records in 2002. "to serve man" would be the release that introduced CATTLE DECAPITATION to a broader, grind audience. Regardless of the controversy, "to serve man" went on to be the band's biggest selling release, at the time, and continues to be a staple title in Metal Blade Records' vast catalog. Colored (green/pink) vinyl is limited to 300 copies.
