BENEATH OBLIVION from man to dust

SLUDGE/DOOM-METAL. BENEATH OBLIVION deliver thick foggy and oppressive music. There are blunt arrangements that move with difficulty and a trudging pace that gives it a nightmarish effect. It’s all heightened by the vocals - a growler without the cookie, but with a bucketload of acid down his throat. Mostly, the tracks are just massive like NEUROSIS on "through silver in blood", but with a more metallic song structure. The tempos are deliberately unhurried, which heightens the sense of endlessness torment. Unrolled over the span of 75min.


OCOAI – The Electric Hand

En la semana he tenido la oportunidad de escuchar algo de material nuevo que se me hizo relevante y que poco a poco estaré subiendo a este espacio, algo de lo mas interesante y que no he podido dejar de escuchar una y otra vez, ha sido este disco, que nos lo entrega la banda estadounidense, que desde Tenesee trae una fuerza tremenda y variedad de influencias musicales muy diversas, entretenidas y sobre todo las mezclas entre estas muy bien logradas. De primera mano, a mi me parecieron una mezcla bastante buena entre el post-rock y un metal ambivalente que podría llamar agridulce, obviamente decantando en un post-metal de calidad, hasta ahí la concepción y el desentramado del disco, pero conforme avanzaba, oyendo de principio a fin este trabajo en una noche de tráfico intenso y lluvia en esta ciudad caótica, me daba cuenta que pasaba muy por encima de esta simple clasificación genérica, ya que las atmósferas estaban llenas de pinceladas de detalles referentes a sus no pocas influencias.

Test Their Logik - A

Test Their Logik’s debut album, recorded, produced, and mixed by Illogik and mastered by Metalworks Studios (known for producing hip-hop acts such as Drake, DMX, and K-OS), “A” is uncompromising in both message and sound. This slick Digipak offers 11 new songs and 3 bonus tracks in just under an hour—it's a lyrical explosion in the face of authority and oppression, a sonic boom in the ears of big brother, and a no-holds-barred escape into rebellion. Ushering in a new era of subversive anti-authoritarian hip-hop, Test Their Logik delivers clear methodical rhymes alternating with rapid-fire lyrical assaults over dark bass- and synth-heavy beats. The album begins with a lyrical experiment never tried by even the most renowned lyricists: a full song only using words that start with the letter A. This title track sets the bar high for what comes next: everything from confrontation to reflection, to dancing, to imprisonment, and liberation.



SLUDGE-METAL/HARDCORE. Sludge fiends FISTULA have pulled themselves up out of the gutter they call home and hooked up with Patac Records to release the "loser" album. It's very dark and sad, heavy, tuned low. The 6 song record features the band’s trademark sickening guitar tone, agonized vocals, and wretched attitude, worshipping as always upon the bloodstained altars of CELTIC FROST, GRIEF, WINTER, EYEHATEGOD, and BUZZOVEN.


Mal Roïn SPLIT Korrozão

Black metal iberico por parte de los Blackers Mal Roïn, black primitivo a lo Venom, sangre y visceras, a tutiplen.
Grindcorre que te pillo, desde Brasil, Korrozão. Bandaza, con mucha mala baba, letras politicas y sobretodo velocidad, mucha velocidad.


Mononoke -Aussicht​?​!



Vestiges/Ghaust Split 12

"Vestiges formed in January of 2010. Influenced by hardcore, black metal, crust, d-beat, screamo, and post-rock, the band set out to incorporate elements of each genre to articulate their message both musically and lyrically through a series of albums that follow a central narrative about the relationship between man and nature.

On October 10, 2010 the band released their debut full-length album and the first installment of their narrative,
The Descent Of Man
. The album was independently released by the band on a limited run of hand-numbered double vinyl, compact discs, and cassettes, which has afforded the band the opportunity to tour extensively across the United States and Canada. The Descent Of Man is currently distributed in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia through a number of independent record labels and distros.

The Descent Of Man follows the creation, the evolution, and the eventual annihilation of mankind. Today, we find ourselves hoping to reverse the damage that we have done and struggling to sustain what little earth we have yet to rape repeatedly. We validate this existence with stories that justify our behavior and our role in the natural world. The promise of salvation in a land we have yet to see has clouded our judgment in a land that is right before our eyes. Industrialization, militarization, overpopulation, theism, specieism, and nihilism are regarded as evolution and progress. Our greed and ignorance have been celebrated and our past has been forgotten. We were meant to be a part of nature. We were not meant to conquer nature. We were given life and we have done everything in our power to bring death upon everything in our pa
th, including ourselves. There will be horrifying consequences for what we have done.

On April 22, 2011 the band released VI, the next chapter of their narrative, on an extremely limited compact disc pressing with the plan to release a vinyl-only, remastered version of the song on a split vinyl with Ghaust (Indonesia) through three labels on three continents. The split was released on October 10, 2011, along with a 180gram pressing of
The Descent Of Man, in celebration of its first anniversary.

Cara Beth Satalino - The Good Ones

ing for "Every now and then I'll find a surprise package of records from Matt/No Idea waitme on my porch-This is how I was introduced to the Witches 7" and became a fan of Salinas Records. I eventually put on a show for the band and found out they were both great people and live band. Now a Witches CD/LP later, here I am getting to work with Cara Beth Satalino (Witches) and Marco/Salinas together on Cara's 2008 recording. It has been remixed, remastered, and comes to you with new artwork in 12" 45 form pressed on recycled mixed color vinyl. These are songs recorded before Witches, some of which would become band songs. Very stripped down but each song offers different dimensions with subtle changes in instrumentation. Now that both Witches and Cara are active I look forward to seeing what comes next.

The Makai - Embracing the Shroud of a Blackened Sky

A 1 song LP of epic metal, blackened crust, and doom infused ‘core. A package of equally epic proportions that includes a full color cover, a full color 24×36 poster, and 12 page booklet!

“The band blends thrash and extreme metal, Swedish-influenced melodic death, and a good bit of chaotic hardcore. The pace is relentless, and the songwriting solid.”


Emptyself – Nothing Follows, Nothing Stays

This is a collection of some of the music I made between 2007-2009 in New Zealand that has gone unreleased for a while. It is mostly slow, introspective, and often sad. It was made during years spent not really listening to any music, sitting alone in the bush or by the ocean, in a sort of private trance. Geologic time.

Ungoliant-No More The World of Man

5 epic tracks coming out to 45 minutes of doom laden psychedelic thunder made to split wide the mind of any mortal with the deranged taste of the unknown..classic!


Brut - Brut

Brut send us their latest album from Montreal, Canada. They plays dark, furious and metallic 34% Crust, 33% Hardcore and 33% Sludge. As my neighbour from Forever Cursed say, this is a grat sound track for the rage and impotence we fell in these days, police bastards, stupid people... today in my country is Election Day. For What?, for nothing, for business as usual, fucked politicans, least I have good soundtrack whit this album.


Wolves in the Throne Room - Celestial Lineage

It has been 8 years since Wolves in the Throne Room’s much mythologized genesis. Over the course of 3 studio albums and hundreds of live performances the band has slowly boiled away the prima materia of Black Metal to distill a unique essence.

The transmutation reaches a new level with the completion of Celestial Lineage the clans’ new Astral Black Metal document. In contrast to the bleakly hypnotic architecture of 2008’s Black Cascade, Celestial Lineage expands into a more expansive and visionary territory. Although it is obviously inspired by European Black Metal, Wolves in the Throne Room create music that is intensely local in it’s orientation. Certainly, Celestial Lineage is a manifestation of the northwestern landscape, but it also arises out of an underground West Coast tradition formed by successive generations of psychic crusaders: Theosophists, beatniks, the Grateful Dead, Neurosis, the back-to-the-land movement, satanic hippies, tree-spiking anarchist punks. The resulting music invokes a misty dream world. Rain drenched specters looming at the edge of the wood. Echoes from the Astral Plane. Ancient cedar deities robed in moss. A glimpse of a bronze-domed temple among the firs. Celestial Lineage was written and recorded over the course of the first six months of 2011.

The Weaver brothers worked with Producer/mystic Randall Dunn (Earth, Boris, SUNN 0))), Cave Singers, Bjork/Omar Souleyman), with whom the band has developed a close relationship since their first collaboration on 2007’s Two Hunters. 3 songs are bejeweled by Jessika Kenney’s liturgical choir and solo voice. Aaron Turner (ISIS) also contributes orations to the maelstrom.


Sarabante - “Remnants

Sarabante is a hardcore/crust band from Athens, Greece. “Remnants” is the bands debut release. The band was brought to the attention of Southern Lord by Brad Boatright of From Ashes Rise. This makes perfect sense as Sarabante has a similar burning intensity that can be heard from those legends. One of the primary focal points of the group is their consistent execution of infectious melodies. This cd is limited to 1,000 machine numbered copies. For fiends of: Tragedy, From Ashes Rise, Neurosis.

Xibalba - Madre Mia Gracias Por Los Dias

Xibalba from Southern California effectively fuse death metal influences like Sepultura and Obituary with more modern and 90’s hardcore as well a healthy dose of Crowbar! Xibalba’s downtuned, heavy as fuck music is a SEVERE force to reckoned with. The old world influence is only evident to the trained eye, but Xibalba gives nods not only to the hardcore bands they were raised on, but to the culture which spawned them. Xibalba not only know their roots, but make sure you won’t forget them either. The Madre Mia Por Los Dias cd contains not only the s/t debut album from Xibalba but also the material from the Earthquake comp cd.


ALPINIST are from Munster Germany, and produce crushingly dark hardcore/crust played with blinding intensity. The band is meant to be understood by those who are sick of following musical trends, those who want to live out music with dedication and those who believe in expressing their own ideals through their own art. Alpinists’ socio-political lyrics are openly and strongly against all forms of fascism, racism, sexism and homophobia. The disc contains both of the band’s albums that were previously only available on limited vinyl releases, making this the first ever CD release from ALPINIST.


COMITY † The Journey Is Over Now

Fear of musical routine. Will of pushing back boundaries with a classical rock instrumentation. Astounding violence executed in one of the most distinguished ways. Incredibly meticulous attention to detail. With so much selection criteria, very few could pull this all off whilst harnessing a consistent sound. And if there’s one band that has always sweat blood and water to access there in the midst of bands like Starkweather, Breach, Today Is The Day, Neurosis, Oxbow and Converge, then it’s without a doubt COMITY. A more than deserved sacrament after fifteen years of a spanner thrown in the works, between disillusions, line-up & record label issues amongst many other aborted plans - going as far as making them momentarily give up in 2007. COMITY have behind them fifteen years of noise and incredible live performances (with The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, Cave In, Today Is The Day…) not to mention a discography with a fascinating progression which propel the band to the rank of one of France’s biggest glories at the release of their second album “As Everything Is A Tragedy” in 2006.

Big Sexy Noise - Trust The Witch

Jusqu’ici je n’ai guère été charitable avec Lydia Lunch et son groupe Big Sexy Noise. Leur premier album sans titre me semble aujourd’hui toujours aussi bancal, pauvre parfois et sans grand intérêt sur les trois quarts de ses titres. Un vrai pétard mouillé. Le Son Du Maquis a choisi de publier Trust The Witch (« fais confiance à la sorcière »), le tout nouvel album de Big Sexy Noise non sans avoir entretemps réédité, comme il convenait de le faire, 13 13, le chef d’œuvre absolu de Lydia Lunch. L’appréhension refait naturellement surface mais l’envie d’écouter également. Alors allons-y.
Première constatation : le line-up de Big Sexy Noise est toujours le même, à savoir Lydia Lunch au chant et aux textes, James Johnston à la guitare, Terry Edwards à l’orgue et au saxophone ainsi que Ian White à la batterie. Et on pense toujours que les trois musiciens de Gallon Drunk sont bien ce qui peut convenir de mieux comme backing band à Lydia Lunch à l’heure actuelle. Toutes les compositions sont signées Lunch/Johnston – alors que sur le premier album il y avait des reprises pas toujours très heureuses (Lynyrd Skynyrd !) – et, effectivement, le niveau général de Trust The Witch s’en ressent automatiquement, de même qu’un sentiment d’unicité certain. Trust The Witch se révèle rapidement quelque peu supérieur à tout ce que Big Sexy Noise a pu enregistrer jusqu’ici, ce qui n’était pas bien dur au départ, on ne peut donc pas dire cela constitue un exploit.



Finger Print - Discography

The Finger Print discography is getting harder to find, so I did some digging. With a little window cleaner my old scratchy copy of the CD made for some good ripping. As far as my personal canon goes, Finger Print were one of the delectable treats that lured me into the rabbit hole of nineties hardcore. Things would never again be the same for me, and I rather like it that way. Claw your way through the tangle of FP's jack-hammering drums, metallic dissonance, winding melodies, and curdling screams, and you'll find four regular guys, hacking their own rambling and fugitive path to the same vague place you hope to one day end up too. Like many acts of the decade, their path went somewhere inward, exploring the place of the individual among the shape-shifting and ghoulish menagerie of the political realm. Whether or not they ever found what they were looking for, I cannot say, but this 19 track document suggests to me that the journey was well worth it. There's nary a single throw-away (other than the awfully recorded live tracks at the end), and unlike many hardcore discographies, I am always riveted by this one from beginning to end. Speaking of the end, the final three studio tracks revealed a slightly new direction for the band, smoothing the jagged metallic edges to more elegant contours. Members would continue in this direction in the band Jasemine, who sadly only released four songs.


Hot Potato Syndrome-Come War Ghost

Yeah,this is how the story goes...When an idea begins,nothing can stop the force of it. Hot Potato Syndrome are the members of different bands from the city of Athens (Gr) who came together and decided to explore the call of the wild and the mentality of those who succumb to it.A music place where one can quite possibly find one's self,but also discovering the dark possibility that we might find our own strange nature,working always as a team. What about follow us in the groove side of our musical experience................
We sound like sharing a smoke of chocolope under a cactus in the desert of Nebada,fighting for peace in the Lacandon Jungle.


Tree Of Sores Tree Of Sores

Leeds 3 piece, taking influences from the doomy atmospherics of Neurosis, an underbelly of crust care of Amebix, and an air of recklessness favoured by the likes of Eyehategod.

The band create a vibe that is heavy, dark and ambient, with tortured male/female vocals, and a mission to take you to a frightening place.


The Phoenix Foundation - No Love Lost

4th full lengh of Finlands PHOENIX FOUNDATION continiues with a row of HUSKER DU influenced melodic punk rock that comes again very solid and well done. The theme is again on the melancholic side of "things" and itä's not a record you listen to when you just have a good time. Maybe more the opposite. I love it. - Artwork is amazingly simple but beautyful. Crafted by Mr John Yates at Stealworks.

Descarados - El canto de los humildes

Crone - Endless Midnight

CRONE representa la incursión de (Jeff Caxide (Ex-ISIS) en paisajes sonoros ambientales, del proyecto unos meses en la toma de que fue inspirado en parte por más de una década realizando en todo el mundo. Con contribuciones de algunos amigos de edad y la influencia de la elaboración de la ficción y el cine tanto como luminarias sonora Tangerine Dream y Vangelis, Endless Midnight es seguro a la banda sonora de su vida en su más apático y melancólico. La oscuridad de un viaje de DMT. La sensación de temor y asombro que sólo el mejor cine de ciencia ficción puede provocar ...


Pal -And Out Your Mouth.

Their MySpace is entitled "paltorture" ... then necessarily, it's a little worried. Because the underground black death of hell, it's going five minutes. Good at the same time, it M_ (yes that's more like hype) eh, so it was perhaps irony and it is much easier to understand. Otherwise, Pal we knew, before receiving it, nor Eve nor Adam is originally from Toulouse and delivers music to the image of the artwork of her and out your mouth. Sludge or a mixture of punk and metal noisecore playing snipers on Prototype Records label, specializes in Southern prods structure 'that tear the mouth much as it should (see: Bone Dance, Dear Catastrophe, Snakecharmer, Sofy Major, Stuntman) . And Pal, nothing wrong, why it is served.

Amebix - Sonic Mass

Cult British underground heavyweights AMEBIX recently parted company with Alternative Tentacles Records after 26 years. The band has decided to step up to the challenge of releasing its own work and has founded Amebix Records in conjunction with Easyaction. They are releasing the new album and back catalogue under the new label while Profane Existence will continue to manufacture and sell the band's work as high-quality vinyl releases, with global distribution through Cargo Records.

AMEBIX's new album, "Sonic Mass", will be made available on September 23 as a CD and gatefold vinyl LP, as well as a digital download.

"Sonic Mass" track listing:

01. Days
02. Shield Wall
03. The Messenger
04. God Of The Grain
05. Visitation
06. Sonic Mass Part 1
07. Sonic Mass Part 2
08. Here Come The Wolf
09. The One
10. Knights Of The Black Sun

A new interview with AMEBIX about "Sonic Mass" can be seen below.

AMEBIX recently released its first new material for almost 24 years. The song is entitled "Knights Of The Black Sun" and was made available on June 3. A limited-edition 12-inch vinyl single was issued on Amebix Records, in conjunction with Profane Existence. The digital download is available through Amebix Records/Easyaction.

An animation version of "Knights Of The Black Sun" can be seen below. The video was created by the team of animator Andy Lefton and director Fin McAteer. Lefton also made a follow-up interview with AMEBIX members Rob Miller and Stig C. Miller to give a little more insight into the epic work that is the band's new album, "Sonic Mass".

"Knights Of The Black Sun" was recorded at The Lodge Studios in Northampton and was engineered and produced by AMEBIX drummer Roy Mayorga (NAUSEA, SOULFLY, STONE SOUR). Singer/bassist Rob Miller (a.k.a. The Baron) described the release in a recent interview as "a coming of age for our music. This whole body of work has been not only about music, but also art. This is going to surprise a lot of people."

Formed in the late Seventies and hailed as the godfathers of crust punk and extreme metal, AMEBIX had long lain dormant until the addition of drummer Roy Mayorga (NAUSEA, CRISIS, SOULFLY, STONE SOUR), a DVD release, and a string of 2009 reunion shows reignited the flame. The band's resurrection first resulted in the release of 2010's "Redux" EP, which features live and re-recorded versions of several of the band's best-loved classics, including "Winter", "Chain Reaction", and the immortal battle cry, "Arise!". The songs were remixed by Mayorga and "Redux" is available from Profane Existence on CD, 12-inch LP and digitally.

RAMESSES possessed by the rise of magik

Ha llegado el momento para dar rienda suelta a Poseído por el aumento de Magik, el esperado, de la marca nueva longitud total de los alquimistas de metal ampliamente aclamado, Ramsés. No es sólo un título, poseído por el aumento de Magik es más una declaración en respuesta a la catarsis efectos de este álbum, una vez que estén sujetas, es imposible resistirse a sus encantos mortales. Se ve a la banda la captura de la parte ritual de su naturaleza con grandes resultados sin tener que recurrir a los trajes, accesorios y maquillaje. Se incorporan las ideas, imágenes, símbolos y sellos de influencia oculta del artista británico Austin Osman Spare en sus propias embarcaciones espaciados sombrío para crear un lenguaje nuevo Magikal. (La forma de escribir "MAIGK la palabra en lugar de, por ejemplo, el traditionalL" magia "o la propia interpretación de Crowley de" MAGIA "refleja este proceso de pensamiento). Grabación en trances y la escritura automática son las técnicas clave en la creación de este nuevo paso en el viaje de la familia de Ram hasta el final!

Yob -Atma

La palabra "
Atma" se define como la existencia del núcleo del alma y que el valor más alto de conocimiento proviene de su verdadero yo. A su vez, "Atma" es la culminación de la carrera de YOB que ha llegado a una corriente de auto-reflexión en su viaje musical.
Con una aparición especial por Scott Kelly de Neurosis y obras de arte por Stevie Floyd de Dark Castle, y envasado en un digipack magníficamente diseñado diseñado por el borde Aaron.

Desert Icons Breach

Light Bearer - Beyond The Infinite The Assembly Of God

Light bearer formed in 2010, from the ashes of UK post metal and hardcore bands [ Fall of Efrafa ] and Dungeons. The band is an all encompassing art/music/narrative project, based around a story written by their vocalist Alex, who drew influence from the writings of Philip Pullman’s ” His dark materials ” trilogy, John Milton’s Paradise Lost, and the Book of Genesis.

The band play a mixture of melodic post hardcore, progressive metal, post rock and ambient atmospheric drone, The songs are structured specifically to follow the narrative and therefore peak and trough in equal measure, mixing screamed desperate vocals with sung passages.

The story is split into four main parts, Lapsus, Silver Tongue, Magisterium and finally Lattermost Sword. The narrative begins with the metaphorical casting out of the protagonist Lucifer, an angel so loyal and in love with god that he could not submit when asked to bow before humanity, personified as Adam.

For this act he is banished from heaven into the cold stigeon wastes below. Here he questions the Allfather – an entity who claimed the universe as his own. In doing so he realises his master has lied, and vows to reach out from his desolate prison and become his namesake –to pass on the torch of free will to all life in the multiple universes.

The story continues in Silver Tongue, Magisterium and Lattermost Sword in which the torch is borne by the metaphorical Eve – the mitochondrial ancestor of humanity, her rejection of the will of the false god and the attempted rebellion against Heaven, her role and the role of the prophesied second Eve. The establishment of the church and the eventual culmination and war against the patriarchal god.

Alongside the four releases are planned EPs and split records, beginning with “Beyond the infinite, the assembly of god” – an elaboration of the introduction to the first album. A second narrative runs through records not included in the four main parts, which deals with the natural formation of the universe and the evolution of life.

Heavy, technical and panicked UK power trio channelling the Melvins, Keelhaul and Zeni Geva into your suffering brain.



After a yearlong phase of writing new material and playing selected concerts KODIAK are now back with a new 2 song record. Before they start to write a three album concept series in 2012 they decided to realize another collaboration: after the liasons with NADJA and BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS it is the drone ambient legend N who joined them to record an impressive wall of sound this time. KODIAK’s feeling for ultraheavy monolithic compositions and N’s eclectic intuition concerning complex soundscapes add up to a perfect musical symbiosis. The 2 pieces “Radon” and “Xenon” are combining the heavy approach of SUNN O))) with the soundscapes people like N, TROUM or THOMAS KÖNER have been experimenting with for 2 decades.


Mental Architects - Patience, Communication, Understanding, Go!

I just started working with the Bulgarian band Mental Architects and will mix and produce their first full-length record. They’re recording the album themselves in Bulgaria, but it’s been a collaborative process from the get-go. To prepare, for instance, we’ve been exchanging videos, demos and sound clips. In this way, I’ve been able to see and comment on their set-up, micing techniques, signal path and environment in which they’ll be tracking the record. This has been great for tweaking certain elements and understanding how the whole thing is coming together. It helps that these guys are very proactive about their band and music. They’ve been a pleasure to work with, and I’m really inspired by their dedication and innovative approach to their art. I love the new demos, and I’m really looking forward to mixing this new record.


BLACK/DOOM-METAL/HARDCORE. OKKULTOKRATI and ARABROT have teamed up for a split LP. The split includes 4 insane new ARABROT tracks, and 3 new hits from OKKULTOKRATI. Limited edition of 500 copies on vinyl. Killer gatefold cover with artwork by Sebastian Rusten.

Lycanthrophy - Lycanthrophy LP


ALL PIGS MUST DIE god is war

HARDCORE. Members of CONVERGE, HOPE CONSPIRACY and THE RED CHORD team up to play some metallic and crust-influenced hardcore with a strong underlying d-beat that takes influence from AMEBIX, ENTOMBED and CELTIC FROST and could be compared to contemporaries like DISFEAR or BLACK BREATH.

Brainoil - Death Of This Dry Season

This being my first impression of Brainoil, I have to say that I absolutely loved this filthy sludge right from the beginning of “Death of This Dry Season.” The guitar work is phenomenal, straightforward, bluesy, melodic riffing. The drumming is steady and punishing and I am quickly falling in love with this band. I like that the vocals don’t stand out over the rest of the music. Everything is set equally and I think that is a killer trait that no enough bands harness. “Gravity Is a Relic” is set to a faster pace, but it is still sludge. I love the charging riffing and pounding drumming. I love the quality of these recordings. I love the atmosphere to the tracks adding that element of misanthropy to the overall album.


Smash Detox

HARDCORE. A remarkable cross border collaboration: SMASH DETOX is Ishiya and Souichi (FORWARD), Mukai ( JUDGEMENT), Zac ( WORLD BURNS TO DEATH) Iizawa (TETSU AREI). You'll get 2 powerful songs that take elements of the intense hardcore sounds of each of their classic Japanese and American Hardcore bands, but combined to a new and unique whole. Created with intense focus and effort, this recalls many of the classic Tokyo hardcore-punk 7"s of the late '90s, but also has the unmistakable mark of Texas Powerhouse hardcore.
