Thought Broadcast

Nurse With Wound
Soliloquy For Lilith

Those kind folks at Dirter have re-issued Nurse With Wound's classic 1988-era ambient opus Soliloquy For Lilith complete with 40 minutes of unreleased tracks from the same session. it's hard to overstate the importance of this album in the ambient field. It was way ahead of its time in producing atmospheric ambient music and was even a chart topper in the ambient field back in the day. 

Various

Melvins
The Maggot & The Bootlicker

To mark the 20th anniversary of the Ipecac Records imprint, as well as the commencement of Melvins’ beloved ‘trilogy’ of albums all released within the space of 12 months, this white and ‘doublemint’ green double LP set collects the first two records out of that triptych - The Maggot and The Bootlicker. 

Throbbing Gristle
D.O.A. The Third And Final Report Of Throbbing Gristle

The music of industrial pioneers Throbbing Gristle is back on their own Industrial Records after 30 years of knocking around other labels, so it is only right that you can get your favourite eerie durge music from the source. D.O.A.

Nurse With Wound
The Swinging Reflective II

A double CD compilation from Nurse With Wound. Stephen Stapleton has put together a load of his favourites from his massive archive, includes tracks he’s remixed, written with guest musicians or long time collaborators, all remastered. It’s a follow on from a compilation of the same name released in 1999. Expect to see the likes of Current 93 and David Tibet, and to be left bewildered and astounded.

Nurse With Wound
The Swinging Reflective

The Swinging Reflective is a 1999 compilation that gathers up Nurse With Wound’s collaborations over the preceding nineteen years. And the list of collaborators is pretty extensive, taking in Stereolab, Whitehouse’s William Bennett, Foetus, Jim O’Rourke and Current 93. So many goodies. Double CD reissue on the Dirter label.

Nurse With Wound
Sinister Whimsy For The Wretched

2CD set of the out of print Nurse With Wound albums, Sugar Fish Drink and Large Ladies With Cake in the Oven. Can the music live up to the oddness promised by the titles of these things? Honestly, probably. Some of the tracks might be familiar to fans of Nurse With Wound but appear here with different names.

Colin Potter
The Where House?

Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Organum, Other Bands - tireless sound-maverick Colin Potter has worked with them all, and knocked out an overwhelming stream of his own material since 1980 right up to the present day. The Where House? is one of his first releases, now remastered for vinyl by Dark Entries and sounding immense. Gluttonous bass and fringe synth in ‘Yoursmine’ are followed by choral drones of ‘Alleys’ and it only gets weirder from then on. Super industrial/post punk electronic experiments.

US goth-metallers Type O-Negative originally released their 12 LP box set, None More Negative, in 2011, just over a year after the sad death of front man Peter Steele which ended the band.

Monolord
Empress Rising

Repress of the debut album from Swedish doom harbingers Monolord. Released in 2014 Empress Rising brings tight focus on the pure groove in the genre, mixing heavy rock and metal tonality with an audacious and powerful low frequency rumble. Taking inspiration from genre figureheads such as Electric Wizard and Sleep and adding a polished finish.

Ulver
Nattens Madrigal

Reissues are under way of Ulver’s ‘Black Metal’ period. Nattens Madrigal is all about wolves and darkness, and is harshly produced. The record has been remastered for this release, and comes as a heavyweight package (thick gatefold sleeve and 180g vinyl) with a booklet, on Century Media.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Ulver
Kveldssanger

Reissues are under way of Ulver’s ‘Black Metal’ period. Kveldssanger bucks the trend by being recorded with entirely acoustic instruments, lending a dark, doomed folk feel. The record has been remastered for this release, and comes as a heavyweight package (thick gatefold sleeve and 180g vinyl) with a booklet, on Century Media.

François J. Bonnet & Stephen O'Malley
Cylene

Cylene, Cylene, Cylene, Cyleeeeeene, I’m begging you please don’t … hang on a minute, this thing doesn’t sound ANYTHING like Dolly Parton. We should have seen that coming really - an LP helmed by Sunn O)))’s Stephen O’Malley and GRM director François J. Bonnet (aka Kassel Jaeger) was never going to be big on singalongs. It is big on sound, though. Cylene is full of thick, glacial, eerie drones that sit slap-bang in the middle of the uncanny valley.

Mastodon
Leviathan

Mastodon's masterpiece broke new ground and spawned legions of imitators upon its release. The Georgia four-piece marry sludge metal with progressive rock, taking the slo-mo metal antics of the Melvins and Black Sabbath and adding a heap of the conceptual and technical flourishes of King Crimson and Neurosis. 'Leviathan' is based on Herman Melville's 'Moby Dick', revealing the thoughts and struggles of Ahab and his fellow shipmates throughout the record. An essential release for those into their sludge, prog, doom, stoner and post metal.

Serj Tankian
Elect The Dead Symphony

System Of A Down frontman, Serj Tankian, released his second solo album, Elect The Dead, in 2007. A couple of years later, a vision he had for the album came to pass as he performed it live with an orchestra, thus melding the worlds of classical and rock with an inextricable bond. Elect The Dead Symphony was recorded with the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra. It is now available on vinyl for the first time.

The Hand Of Doom
Poisonoise

If metal on metal is what you crave then The Hand Of Doom’s Poisonoise should float your boat. Originally released in 1979, this set of heavy metal and hard rock is the sort of record that should be played on every single pub stereo when friday night rolls round. The performance from The Hand Of Doom’s singer Andreas 'Iggi' Rossner, all exuberant histrionics and ‘Release The Bats’-style melodrama, is particularly good value for money.

Throbbing Gristle
20 Jazz Funk Greats

For all their reputation as “wreckers of civilisation”, by 1979 the original industrial quartet had gotten some of the confrontation out of their system and were exploring a wider range of expression. Chris and Cosey were getting more into their electronics, evident on the pure electropop of Hot on the Heels of Love and Walkabout’s jolly sequenced synth. Of course, it wouldn’t be TG if it was all “very friendly”, so Persuasion and Six Six Sixties see Genesis P-Orridge letting in various shades of creepiness. Peter Christopherson must be responsible for some of the sleaziness too, of course. Double CD reissue, with a disc’s worth of live tracks from 1979.

Konstruktivists
Glennascaul

Konstruktivists is the project of Glenn Michael Wallis who had a connection with Throbbing Gristle (he was their control agent, whatever that means!). His music, described as proto-electro, was influenced by the likes of Neu!, Can, Yello, Tuxedomoon and Chrome. 'Glennascaul', his fourth album, was produced by Chris Carter of Throbbing Gristle at his studio in 1985. Wallis also collaborated with Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti on' Conspiracy International One' by CTI.

Workshed
Workshed

Workshed is the new project from former Cathedral members Adam Lehan and Mark Wharton. They continue their intense doom metal sound on a scathing album full of powerful riffs and severely pissed off vocals. Possibly not one to play to the children at bedtime it's further proof that these long dormant metal legends still have the bit between their teeth a quarter century after their most revered work. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Cult of Luna
A Dawn to Fear

Get yourself strapped in for the big one from heavy, heavy post metallers Cult of Luna as they take you on a 79 minute rollercoaster ride through their ominous atmospheres and pummelling riffs. The fact that they only manage eight songs in this time tells you all you need to know about the crushing slo-mo churns and brooding orchestrated blasts of post-rock from these long term heavies. For the uninitiated think Neurosis, Isis or the heavier end of the post- rock spectrum.

Cain
Cain

Another metal re-issue on Rise Above this time from Birmingham travellers Cain. They were made up of members of Doom and Extreme Noise Terror and were notable for infusing their sludgy riffing with influences from psychedelia, industrial music but most intriguingly sampling and ambient soundscapes. Sorta somewhere between Loop and Celtic Frost states the press release. Nothing if not unique.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Electric Wizard
Dopethrone

Electric Wizard's 'Dopethrone' is a masterpiece of stoner and doom metal. The Dorset group take Black Sabbath's slow-and-low template and run all the way down the psychedelic rabbit hole and straight into the gates of hell with it. The ridiculously low-tuned guitars are steeped in devilish herb smoke and thick layers of fuzzed-out fog, whilst their wall-of-sound riffs lumber with monolithic intensity alongside mammoth percussion which fall like asteroids hitting earth. Jus Oborn’s funereal vocals sound as if he was caught within a bad trip, augmenting the demonic album with a shade of psychedelic brilliance.⁣ 'Dopethrone' is the perfect marriage of doom, sludge, stoner and psychedelic rock and is an essential in any collection. The album art depicting an intoxicated Lucifer pretty much sums up the record!

Repulsion
Horrified (30th Anniversary Picture Disc)

Marvellous (and slightly terrifying looking) picture disc re-issue of one of the early and influential grindcore records. Recorded in 1986, it wasn't released until three years later and subsequently became a yardstick for the sort of thrash and grind that would later appear on the Earache label. The fact that it opens with a track called Stench of Burning Death should tell you all you need to know about where this is coming from.

Lightning Bolt
Sonic Citadel

The press release for Sonic Citadel, the new album from Lightning Bolt, tells us who drummer Brian Chippendale has collaborated with from Bjork to Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and about an ace computer game he wrote called Thumper. What you want to know, I reckon, is that this is the Providence, Rhode Island noise rock duo’s ninth album and it will blow your mind. On Thrill Jockey.

The Body
Remixed

For the past twenty years, The Body have been experimenting with heavy metal music and coming up with sounds that wouldn’t necessarily expect from a  heavy metal band. For their twentieth anniversary the Rhode Island duo are releasing Remixed - a selection of tracks from their catalogue that have been remixed by other artists.

Throbbing Gristle
Throbbing Gristle's Greatest Hits

Like the title of '20 Jazz Funk Greats', 'Throbbing Gristle's Greatest Hits' is named with tongue poked firmly in cheek. They of course had no 'hits' as such but they did basically invent industrial music. Mostly terrifying, they weren't averse to the odd stab at disco on tracks like 'Hot on the Heels of Love'.

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell
Very Uncertain Times

These are indeed very uncertain times, and to emphasise this fact, Hastings proto-metalers Admiral Sir Cloudesely Shovell return with their fourth album, Very Uncertain Times. Despite the album’s pessimistic title, the band are here to blow your cares away and make everything seem a-okay once again. On Rise Above.

Misfits
Walk Among Us

The Misfits inspired thousands of groups with this record. Their debut album 'Walk Among Us' merged B-movie horror imagery with early forms of hardcore punk, shaping a breakneck album of nightmarish yet hugely fun proportions. It features classic songs such as 'Astro Zombies', 'Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?' and the fan-favourite single 'Night of the Living Dead'. The Misfits aren't just a logo to slap on T-shirts after all...

Boris
Feedbacker

'Feedbacker' is Japanese experimental metal band Boris’ masterpiece, encompassing one song divided into five distinct movements. The piece shape-shifts from drone metal to psychedelia, bleeding into stoner metal and glorious noise where even the percussion distorts! ‘Feedbacker’ is a record which perfectly highlights Boris’ chameleonic tendencies, making it an essential record for fans of post-metal, psych rock, drone and noise rock.

Boris
Akuma No Uta

Never fear - although they may share a name with our troublesome and idiotic prime minister, Boris are excellent, combining ultra-heavy riffing with thunderous percussion ever since they came into being in 1992. Third Man Records re-issues their 2003 album, Akuma No Uta, to collide with a brand new American tour. 

Boris
LφVE & EVφL

Borises aren’t all bad. Overlords of Japanese drone/doom/stoner psychedelic rock, Boris, are back with a double album. LφVE & EVφL sees the band continue to find new ways in which to cleave your mind apart. If you’re unfamiliar with Boris but like Sunn 0))), Sonic Youth et al, then you’ll love this. Also recommended for fans of Boris.

Cabaret Voltaire
Chance Versus Causality

Chance Versus Causality is perhaps the most intriguing of all of Cabaret Voltaire’s records. After a gig in Brussels in 1979 the band were approached by Babette Mondini and asked if they would score a film she was working on at the time. Cabaret Voltaire made the soundtrack without ever watching the footage, sent off the tapes to Holland, and then … nothing. The trio never saw the film and, after a limited release, it basically disappeared from the record. Now the Chance Versus Causality OST has been resurrected by Mute for its first proper release. 

RMFTM
Bliss

Eindhoven-based psychedelic act RMFTM (Radar Men From The Moon) return with a new EP of experimental exercises of drone, ambient and dark electronics. Propulsive rhythms, lysergic atmospheres, throbs and hisses of feedback, and deluges of murky synths feature in this three-track EP. Remember, Fuzz Club isn't just a label, it's a promise.

Here comes a re-issue of experimental/ambient music heavyweights Nadja's 2008 album Desire in Uneasiness. It is unique amongst their catalogue in having a live drummer and eschewing guitar in lieu of two (count 'em) basses. It's been remixed and remastered ahead of it's first ever vinyl release having originally been a CD only product back in the day. Expect super slow riffs and weight sonic dirges.

Ministry
Filth Pig

Filth Pig is the sixth album by industrial metalers Ministry. It originally saw the light of day way back in 1996. I must be getting old because I always think of Filth Pig as one of their recent albums. The title comes from the mouth of Tory stuffed shirt, Teddy Taylor MP, who described Ministry main man, Al Jourgensen, as a 'filth pig' in the Houses of Parliament. Jourgensen must have been mortified.

Somatic Responses are a duo made up of brothers, John & Paul Healy. They’ve been making industrial techno for the past 20 years. Assault is being released though Scottish techno label RIOT Radio Records. The fact that the pair come from a sleepy mining town in Wales plays into their music as it reflects the mechanical noise that goes on underground.

Crypt Witch
Bad Trip Exorcism

Deep Distance is a label usually known for its komische and krautrock as well as being an imprint of Polytechnic Youth. This release of Bad Trip Exorcism by Crypt Witch may come as a surprise. Stoner/Doom rock with the expansive nature of Spacemen 3 and the heavy riffing of Black Sabbath. This vinyl version follows the CD version which sold out very quickly. 

Mortiferum
Disgorged From Psychotic Depths

Their 2017 demo recordings, titled Altar of Decay, put American doom metallers Mortiferum on the map. Two years later, their debut album proper Disgorged From Psychotic Depths sounds exactly like its title would suggest, constructed from raging slabs of monolithic, sludgy noise and monstrous riffing.

Vacivus
Annihilism

Two years ago, British death metal band Vacivus established themselves as one of the country’s best acts in the genre with the releases up to their debut album Temple of the Abyss. Its follow-up, Annihilism, is a technically dazzling and defiantly forward-looking affair, showing their competitors exactly what metal should strive to sound like in 2019. 
  • Genre(s):

Robedoor
Negative Legacy

Dark, dirty, drone, doom synth noise, that’s LA duo Robedoor. Negative Legacy sees the band digging further down into the murkiest of murk to find beats whilst tempering that a little with a more melodic edge. It is the pair’s first full length for Deathbomb Arc after throwing out a few singles and compilation tracks on the label. 

Kleistwahr
This World Is Not My Home / Over Your Heads Forever

Kleistwahr is a musical project of Gary Mundy, known for his industrial/power electronics band Ramleh. This World Is Not My Home (2014) and Over Your Heads Forever (2016) were originally released on CD to great critical acclaim. Kleistwahr explores sound from atmospheric lows to ear-bleeding highs. Fourth Dimension is making them available as a double LP set.

Eye Flys
Context

Here is one to blow away the cobwebs. Four musicians from bands such as Backslider and Full of Hell come together for a brand of vitriolic noise rock that has already drawn comparisons with such legendary rackateers such as the Melvins and Unsane. Get yourself strapped in for some ferocious riffing, pummelling drumming and vocals vomited out with ferocity as if singer Jake Smith is expecting the world to end any minute. Growly.

Chelsea Wolfe
Birth of Violence

Birth of Violence is the seventh album by Chelsea Wolfe. It is the follow-up to 2017’s Hiss Spun. She cites myriad influences from Aalyiah to Suicide to Sunn O))) to Townes Van Zandt. She does her best to be unpigeonholable but if you want a genre as a touchstone, perhaps experimental ambient doom metal-folk? On Sargent House.

Holy Serpent
Endless

“Holy Serpent Batman!” is something that Robin never said in the original TV series. Holy Serpent are a psych rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Their new album is called Endless. Frontman Scott Penberthy says it’s influenced by the ocean - and on tracks like Lord Deceptor and Hourglass you can hear how the ocean’s movement may have influenced the ebb and flow of the music. 

Ufomammut
XX

To mark the 20th anniversary of the truly mind-bending music made by Italian trio Ufomammut, all eight of their studio albums are being re-issued in this lavish box set, available on CD or coloured vinyl, and which comes with book, poster, patch and sticker. There’s also a new album, XX, featuring six re-recorded tracks recording on their last European tour. Oh, and all the records have been given new artworks. Enough for you?

Although he’s got nearly twenty years of experience in the music industry, Peter Rehberg is only just getting round to making his fourth Pita album. As ever, he’s included the word ‘Get’ in the title, and Get On also continues Rehberg’s musical themes of marrying ugly aesthetics with beautiful ones. 

Kayo Dot
Blasphemy

Kayo Dot is the ever evolving project led by Toby Driver since 2003. They take elements of metal, goth and jazz and coagulate them into an intoxicating, cascading brew over which Driver adds his sonic concoctions. Fifteen years after their inception they unleash Blasphemy which is based on a story by Jason Byron concerning political greed. Who'd a thought that would be an inspiration in 2019? Some pretty nifty looking special editions available on this too.

Bob Weston has remastered the album from scratch for this reissue, meaning even finer sonics. On Neurot.

Death
Live In L.A.

Ooph Death. Not looking forward to that at all. What I am looking forward to more is hearing this live document of the legendary band in concert in 1998. Recorded on the tour for their final album Sound of Perseverance, it is a timely reminder of the raw power and intense playing of the band in their heyday. Originally issued to help raise money for leader Chuck Schuldiner's cancer treatment. Sadly Schuldiner succumbed to that thing that we all must meet eventually in 2001 but through documents like this his legend lives on.

Cold In Berlin
Rituals Of Surrender

Cold In Berlin mix fuzzy, goth-flavoured detuned doom rock with post punk. They're based in London, so I have no idea if they know what the temperature is in Berlin. They claim to be influenced by music released in the 20 year period between 1973 and 1993 along with things outside music such as Asian extreme films, early 20th century European literature, the work of documentary maker Adam Curtis. This all pours into their latest slab of wax, Rituals Of Surrender.

Skinny Puppy
VIVI Sect VI

VIVI Sect VI (Vivisect Six) was the fourth album by Canadian electro-industrial band Skinny Puppy. At the time, 1988, it was the band’s most refined sounding album. It was regarded as their best album by many critics. Lyrically it dealt with animal rights, chemical warfare and environmental issues. 
  • Genre(s):

Skinny Puppy
Rabies

Rabies was an oddball record in the storied history of Skinny Puppy in that it featured Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen on several tracks and so the record had more the feel of a Ministry record than a Skinny Puppy one. Still, this is an experimental work on which the band mixed their industrial rock background with with an ahead-of-their-time use of sampling. Back out on vinyl courtesy of Nettwerk records.

Moor Mother
Analog Fluids of Sonic Black Holes

Moor Mother is Philadelphia musician and poet Camae Ayewa who has previously collaborated with The Bug and Justin Broadrick (Godflesh etc). This should give you some idea of where she's coming from with this her third album under the Moor Mother moniker. She uses elements of free jazz, noise, rap, reggae and industrial music to create freeform splurges and matches them with explosive subject matter on subjects such as police brutality and enslavement. Another dark missive from the undergrowth from one of today's most thought provoking artists.

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs
King of Cowards

Not again! Rocket Recordings left the sty gate open and now as many as seven Pigses are off trotting about the place. Aye, that’s seven pigs, a theme of the seven deadly sins, six riffing, Nu Manchu bangers and one city, Newcastle, where this style is currently enjoying quite a revival. Trivia: the album was mostly written in a barn in Italy, close to actual pigs.

We will look back at 2019 as the year in which Sunn O))) released as many album as they played chords. 'Pyroclasts' follows 'Life Metal' and is pitched as the earlier record's "shadow album". Presumably this means it will not stop until it has destroyed that which casts it. A bit like Dark Link in Zelda. Heavy and slow, you know the drill.

Earth
Live at Third Man Records

Jack White, bless him, facilitates something worthwhile every now and then. This live album was recorded to tape (nice!) last year in the Blue Room at Third Man Records in Nashville, where Dylan, Adrienne and co played support to Boris (whose set from that night is being released simultaneously). Four long tracks that originally appeared on four different studio albums. Limited LP released for the imported dystopian nightmare that is Black Friday.

Pharmakon
Devour

Margaret Chardiet drops her fourth LP as Pharmakon (anyone else reading that as ‘farm Akon’? Now there’s a thought…). Devour is the first album Chardiet has recorded live in the studio, and as such there’s a real feeling of spontaneity and immediacy to this tortured set of power electronics. Production from Uniform’s Ben Greenberg only adds to the intensity. You’re looking at the early days of Posh Isolation for Devour’s related records.

Thorr's Hammer
Live by Command of Tom G. Warrior

Doom-metal legend Tom G. Warrior re-assembled the cult American-Norwegian death/doom band Thorr’s Hammer at the Dutch festival Roadburn back in 2010. Live by Command of Tom G. Warrior was the thrilling result, this live LP consisting of four lengthy explorations into the artists’ shared passions.

Deathprod
Occulting Disk

First new Deathprod album in 15 years as Oslo's Helge Sten re-constitutes the project that has already produced some of the most immersive ambient music of our times. His previous output has always been raw and powerful politically aware ambient music which has drawn comparisons to GAS, Swans and Tim Hecker. A much needed comeback to soundtrack these turbulent times. Liner notes by unlikely fan Will Oldham who reveals he listens to Deathprod with his mum.  

Oranssi Pazuzu
Live at Roadburn

Oranssi Pazazu are a Finnish psychedelic black metal band, not that they necessarily want to get bogged down in all that genre stuff. They are just the kind of band to go down a storm at the Roadburn festival which is what they did in 2016 and 2017. Live At Roadburn will help you experience their blistering and innovative experimentalism in the comfort of your own home. Essential fact: Their keyboard player is called Evil.

Sleep
Sleep's Holy Mountain

The reason people buy Sleep’s 60 minute song Dopesmoker on vinyl, is that the only alternative to flipping it halfway through is, in fact, not listening to it on vinyl. Luckily for you, Holy Mountain contains separate songs, allowing the occasional silence between the wall of energy and noise. Remastered in Full Dynamic Range, this reissue will reveal new depths to this stonerrock classic. Sleep members would later found Om and High on Fire, continuing to bring noise upon us. 

Throbbing Gristle
Mission Of Dead Souls

Why does the name of this band still hurt my teeth?  This is the last live performance from Throbbing Gristle before their initial break up in the early 80's. The formats offered here have been unavailable for decades, so this is BIG. Mission Of Dead Souls is available on a limited edition white vinyl reissue LP and reissue CD, both released on Mute.

Uniform & The Body
Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back

After the success of 2018’s Mental Wounds Not Healing, The Body and Uniform join forces once more for another LP. Given that both of these groups work the channels between noise and melody, it’s no surprise that Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back is a set of totemic industrial electronics. EBM, darkwave, monolithic post-rock and plenty more are all chucked together on this intense album. Cuts like ‘Penance’ come across like New Order being reworked for a Posh Isolation compilation.

Whitehouse
Total Sex

Industrial electronic pioneers, Whitehouse, originally released their second album, Total Sex, in 1980. This reissue features bonus tracks, Her Entry and Foreplay which originally appeared on a label compilation album. The tracks were recorded during the same sessions as Total Sex, so it’s only fitting that they find a home together here.

Keiji Haino + SUMAC
Even for just the briefest moment / Keep charging this “expiation” / Plug in to making it slightly better

If you’re a fan of the more outre end of modern rock music, chances are that you enjoyed that Keiji Haino/SUMAC collaborative LP which came out back in 2018. You’ll be pleased to hear, then, that they’ve done another one, and it’s got another silly title. Even for just the briefest moment / Keep charging this “expiation” / Plug in to making it slightly better (bloody hell) is really impressive stuff, punching through the walls of psych-rock and post-metal to stumble onto something far stranger. Maybe Melt Banana would be a similar band?

Monolord
Vaenir

Monolord are the boss of the low graveyard sound, thriving on destructive bass lines, or guitar riffs, with the guitars tuned in maybe drop-C so who really knows anyway. Vaenir has the killer nihilistic riffs, the warped vocals, the glorious emptiness that comes with repetition, and the slow whiplash-inducing-head-bobbing rhythm. Top tier doom metal.

Firebreather
Under A Blood Moon

I'm a Firebreather, twisted Firebreather. This Gothenburg trio aren't quite as deafening as the Prodigy but they are still quite an intense experience playing a form of monolithic riff rock that has drawn comparisons to Monolord and High on Fire. Expect billowing guitar riffs hammering away beneath the gravelly vocals of Mattias Nööjd on songs which crucially never lose the groove. 
  • Genre(s):

Hecker
Inspection II

Editions Mego bring you another round of high-concept computer music from sonic metaphysician Florian Hecker. If I understand correctly, this one takes a (synthetically recited) text and continually resynthesises it based on algorithms modelling human hearing. The result is a model subverted by extremity - masochism, in other words. It sounds like the world’s unhappiest dialup modem.

clipping.
There Existed an Addiction to Blood

clipping. are very much what you'd expect from a rap group on Sub Pop. Their production is noisy and abrasive and they know their history. This is especially true of MC Daveed Diggs who is now considerably more well known for his role as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton, the musical.

Uniform & The Body
Mental Wounds Not Healing / Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back

Two collaboration albums in a specially priced one-CD package presented by Sacred Bones. The result of a tour 30 months ago when industrial/noise outfit Uniform were asked to support their heroes The Body, Mental Wounds Not Healing followed soon afterwards and Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back. 

Ulver
Trolsk Sortmetall 1993 – 1997

Century Media press up a new edition of Ulver’s retrospective box-set Trolsk Sortmetall 1993-1997. The collection brings together the Norwegian group’s first three LPs and their debut demo Vargnatt. Also included are some bonus recordings of the band rehearsing what would eventually become their third album Nattens madrigal. Trolsk Sortmetall 1993-1997 acts as a neat summation of Ulver's black metal phase.

Wreck and Reference
Absolute Still Life

Ultra-heavy rock experimentalists Wreck And Reference - with the emphasis on the ‘mentalists’ part - return with fourth studio album Absolute Still Life. As opposed to the granite hardness and raw volume of previous efforts, this outing is much more electronically-based, and all the weirder for it. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Monolord
No Comfort

No Comfort, the fourth LP from Swedish group Monolord is also their first for Relapse Records. The trio make the step up with aplomb here, proving that they deserve their seat at the table with a set of doom-/stoner-metal hybrids. Tracks like ‘The Bastard Son’ break up the crushing riffage with some intricate incidental passages.

Rainbow Grave
No You

Few things released in 2019 are going to have the massive, weighty negativity of No You, the debut album from Birmingham-based Rainbow Grave on God Unknown Records. Promising to forge the blankness of classic punk and metal with a bombardment of psychedelic elements, this could be an unforgettable debut for the genre.

Diocletian
Amongst The Flames Of A Burning God

One of the most insanely extreme and often violent death metal bands in existence, New Zealand’s Diocletian have resurrected their career following their 2015 split with a whole new line-up behind leader Brendan Southwell. Amongst The Flames of a Burning God is their grand return, and finds them in remorselessly primal form.

Coil
Swanyard

How about this, then? Over two hours of unreleased Coil, dating from 1993 to 1996 and scrubbed from Danny Hyde’s (Coil, Psychic TV, Electric Sewer Age) studio archive. In a nice touch, the cover art, courtesy of Nurse With Wound’s Steven Stapleton, is derived from one of Jhon Balance’s dreams. On Infinite Fog.

USA/Mexico
Matamoros

Good to see the two countries putting their wall differences aside and coming together for a collaborative LP. This of course isn't the entire population of the USA and Mexico but a collaboration between Craig Clouse (Shit & Shine), King Coffey (Butthole Surfers) and Nate Cross (Marriage, When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth). They seem obsessed with hi-fi shops and the LPs used as demonstrations for their high end wares.  

Hey Colossus
Carcass / Medal

A bite-sized portion of psych / psychotic rock music from the Hey Colossus stable. 'Carcass' is as near to pop as you might expect this crew to get, whereas 'Medal' on the flip-side is a fast and furious blast-crunch. A well-selected single really, showing off different modes of the Colossus. 7” on Alter.

Pelican
Nighttime Stories

Pelican returns! Nighttime Stories is their first full release in six years, appearing on the reliably strong Southern Lord (aka the Sunn O))) label). These nine instrumentals are of course heavy and dark, but they are also as vividly detailed as you could want, with lots of intricacies beneath the dense chugs.

Sunn O)))
Monoliths & Dimensions

'Monoliths & Dimensions' is probably Sunn O)))'s best album. And if you don't believe me consider that the Quietus named it the best album of their lifetime. High praise! As well as the usual Sunn O))) trademarked doom metal guitar drones, 'Monoliths & Dimensions' features a lot of playful elements, and never has to resort to cheesy spoken word.

Acid King
Busse Woods

20th anniversary re-issue of Busse Woods, the second full-length album by San Francisco-based stoner metal band Acid King originally released in January 1999 and the only album they recorded with bassist Brian Hill. Alongside an accompanying tour in 2019, it’s a great chance to enjoy the band’s influential aesthetic at a point when they had it perfected. 

Zu
Carboniferous

Zu made a name for themselves blending (or abusing as the press release has it) forms of avant metal, electronics and industrial noise. So powerful in fact that it blew John Zorn away which given his output is quite the achievement. Carboniferous is their 2009 era classic featuring contributions from the likes of Mike Patton and King Buzzo. Strap yourself in and get your ears ready for this luxury gold vinyl re-press.  

Cave In
Final Transmission

Cave In have been quiet for the last 7 years or so. Band members were working on other projects - Mutoid Man, Nomad Stones and Old Man Gloom, as well as working on new material for Cave In. Final Transmission is the result of a weekend in Boston when the band reconvened. It’s the last album with bassist Caleb Scofield who was tragically and sadly killed on the way home from these sessions. .

Sunn O)))
Life Metal

Here they come again, churning away. This time slo-mo metallers Sunn O))) have recorded with grumpy recording engineer Steve Albini who, when answering the phone from the big hairy guys said "Sure, this will be fun". And fun it was as the band drafted in violin ace Hildur Guðnadóttir (Mum, Pan Sonic) to add textures and all sorts to the ever expanding brew. Also Anthony Pateras guests on pipe organ.      

Test Dept.
Disturbance

New material from Test Dept., the early industrial legends who just love to make didactic statements about this nonsense society over heavyweight hammerings. Disturbance is the first new album from the group for absolute years, and it is still raw, if also a little more souped-up. On One Little Indian.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Scott Walker & Sunn O)))
Soused

Continuing their tireless campaign to work with every single artist and band threatening to be more bizarre and avant-garde than them, 'Soused' is the fifth collaborative record in Sunn O)))'s one-chord arsenal, following splits and records with Earth, Boris, Nurse With Wound and Ulver. This time around, they meet baritone pop singer -- gone crazy experimental musique concrete alien -- Scott Walker, who you at least have to admit is the most suitable Walker brother for Sunn to do an album with. Nicknamed Scott O))), Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson join together to make some lovely evil drone sounds for Walker to brood over. It's fifty minutes long and Walker's producing partner Peter Walsh probably got knocked out while it was being recorded, after maybe saying something like "Sunn Who???". It's the follow-up to 'Terrestrials' for Sunn and 'Bish Bosch' for Walker.

Monolord
Rust

Swedish doom lords/riff masters Monolord return for their third full length album in the form of Rust. Bringing back the sheer groovability to the genre they mix heavy rock and metal tonality with bombastic low frequency rumbling power. Mixing genre luminaries such as Electric Wizard and Sleep with polished finish.
