Dead To A Dying World
Elegy

Texan band Dead To A Dying World mix all the darkest, doomiest bits of metal with post-rock and some almost choral melodic moments to make a truly widescreen epic sound that fills all the gaps in the air. Many of their tracks crack the 15-minute barrier. Elegy is their third album and follow-up to 2015’s Litany. On Profound Lore.

Emperor
As The Shadows Rise

Get down to the nearest animal enclosure for some goat appreciation from Emperor. As The Shadows Rise is the barons of doom 1994 release getting the reissue treatment. You can feel the despair and corpse paint dripping off this one, with lo-fi production, fuzzed beyond recognition guitars, thrashed out drums and vocal brutalisms.

Attrition / Alu
Attrition / Alu

Here we have an eponymous split album between Coventry band Attrition and Berlin band ALU. The post-industrial and electronic sounds, dystopia and existentialism on offer are informed, for both bands, by the cold war, the effects WWII had on both cities and the way they were rebuilt with brutalist architecture. RIYL Cabaret Voltaire, Nocturnal Emissions and Nurse With Wound.

Puce Mary
The Drought

Frederikke Hoffmeier aka Copenhagener Puce Mary joins PAN for her new album The Drought, where she is found tucking in to the world’s most suspicious-looking apple. The image suggests themes of temptation, self-destruction and self-preservation are encountered in these new tracks, while compositionally Hoffmeier seems to be using decidedly less aggression and more vulnerability and melody than we’ve heard from her before.

Index
Kainos

Known best as the drummer for Slowdive, British musician Simon Scott makes his debut under his Index solo alias. Dealing in dissonant, fractured swathes of noise, inspired by political instability and in places containing fragments of heated parliamentary debates concerning Brexit, Kainos is chaotic and compelling.

Merzbow × Kaoru Sato
Kyoto Oct 21 2018

For anyone that isn't aware, October 21st is my birthday. As part of the worldwide celebrations in 2018 noise legend Merzbow hooked up with Kaoru Sato of R.N.A. Organism in Kyoto for some slabs of racket. The A side sees the duo in collaboration, whilst the B side is solo sessions that took place after the joint performance. I'm truly blessed.

Deviated Instinct
Rock 'n' Roll Conformity

Reissue of Deviated Instinct's debut album Rock 'n' Roll Conformity. One of the first wave of bands of the UK's crustcore scene, they played fast and heavy. To give you an idea of their calibre, they regularly toured with the likes of Bolt Thrower, Carcass and Napalm Death. Sick riffs and visceral yelps.

Type O Negative
World Coming Down

World Coming Down is the 5th album from Brooklyn goth-metal band Type O Negative, originally released in 1999. The band were led by, the now sadly departed, Pete Steele.  Despite their goth status, they don’t mind a joke, with their CD skipping intro being converted to a record jumping intro for this vinyl release. When you first play your pristine copy sent to you, beautifully packaged, care of Norman Records, don’t worry, it’s not a duff copy, it’s just those wags at Type O Negative HQ having a laugh. Although part of the None More Negative box set released in 2011 his is the first time the album has been available on standalone vinyl.

Nurse With Wound
Dark Fat

Dark Fat is what happens when Nurse With Wound elect to record all their live performances for a whole decade and then turn their curious eyes to the task of forming some new creature from the audio morass. What we get is a whole new set of compositions: you might catch the ghost of a gig you remember, but don’t bet on it.

Nurse With Wound
Spiral Insana

Spiral Insana was the 1986 album by Stephen Stapleton and his long running Nurse With Wound project. It is regarded as one of his best works and was praised by David Keenan in his book England's Hidden Reverse as Stapleton's most powerful work. It contains contributions from Organum's David Jackman and is unique perhaps as tracks are distinguished by alphabetical lettering. 

Nurse With Wound
Salt Marie Celeste

Salt Marie Celeste is a 2003 era album by Stephen Stapleton's Nurse With Wound project and is regarded as 'out there' even by his standards. The title track is 60 minutes long and is a tour de force of orchestral chords and swirling discordant textures. The album was made by Stapleton and long term collaborator Colin Potter.

Eye Flys
Tub of Lard

East Coast (of America we presume) quartet Eye Flys have only been together a year but have already unleashed their debut album. They contain members of Full of Hell, Backslider and Triac and play a lean form of rock full of killer riffs and oddball rhythms. Never ones to miss a marketing opportunity, Thrill Jockey have released this on 'lard' coloured vinyl amongst other options.

Old Tower
The Last Eidolon

This is the third album by Old Tower and features a story so relevant that it could have featured on tonights 6 o' Clock News... a kingdom laid to waste by its own ruler through dark magic and destructive spirits. The tale is told via some dark ambient that straddles three separate lengthy chapters. These epic pieces come on luxurious double vinyl or lavish CD.

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!

Spotlights
We Are All Atomic

The press release describes this as a post-nuclear EP  - they obviously know something we don't but regardless of the situation, this is an important release for Spotlights who have just come off tours with the Melvins and the Deftones as well as releasing their debut on Ipecac. Their sound is rather more unclassifiable than their history suggests blending shoegaze and doom metal -  a sound that is particularly boundary pushing on this new release. 

Der Blutharsch / Skullflower
A Collaboration

Austrian artist Albin Julius returns under his recording moniker Der Blutharsch, in league with the Infinite Church of the Leading Hand, works once again with British noise rock veterans Skullflower on the bluntly titled A Collaboration. Following their 2016 hook-up Angel of Darkness, it ought to be another workout of dark, droning psychedelia.

Psychic TV
Dreams Less Sweet

An extremely conscientious reissue of Psychic TV’s ‘Dreams Less Sweet’, from the early period when they still wrote some pop songs, and beautifully psychedelic ones at that. The artwork is all restored and great care has even been taken to preserve the eccentric holophonic audio format of the original. The synths, choral interludes and Sleazy’s pre-Coil sound experiments have never sounded so good. Includes the drop-dead gorgeous, timeless classic 'Orchids'. 'Dreams Less Sweet' was the group's second album, originally issued by Some Bizarre in 1983. Genesis P Orridge and Sleazy were joined by Geff Rushton (aka Jhon Balance of Coil), David Tibet of Current 93 and more.

Myrkur
Folkesange

Myrkur is what Danish singer / songwriter and actress Amalie Bruun calls herself when she makes black metal. 'Folksange' is her third album under this moniker although she has several releases under her own name. This album dials down the black metal somewhat in favour of her take on traditional folk music, channeling the Scandinavian culture that framed her childhood.

Witchcraft
Black Metal

Norwegian occult rock band Witchcraft formed solely to record a tribute to Roky Erikson and Bobby Leibling, leader of US Heavy Metal band Pentagram. That was 20 years ago. Five albums of doom-laiden occult rock later and they’ve decided finally to call an album Black Metal...and make it entirely acoustic. So, think Bill Callahan and Elliott Smith matched with a certain amount of twitchy discomfort.

Deafkids
Metaprogramação

Brazilian psych rockers Deafkids aren't afraid to get nasty. On Metaprogramação, their third album, is built on the polyrhythms associated with their continent, while over the top they flail through heavy guitar riffs and cough and splutter like someone who's swallowed a fly. It's aggressive and intense and well worth giving yourself over to. On Neurot. 

Witchskull
A Driftwood Cross

Witchskull so what you think they may say on the tin by making the biggest load of sludgy doom metal you ever heard. The Australian trio are known for their monolithic riffs and explosions of pure, fierce energy that sakes its cue from Black Sabbath but over the course of three albums has been honed to a pummelling racket. These people are artisan riff makers, their lives depend solely on the heaviness of their sludge. It's time to worship.

Nine Inch Nails
Pretty Hate Machine

'Pretty Hate Machine' was the first time the public heard Trent Reznor's unique and approachable take on industrial music as Nine Inch Nails. Unlike the distortion heavy goth rock jams of classic releases like 'The Downward Spiral' or 'Broken', NiN's debut is more akin to the synth and electropop of Depeche Mode or New Order, albeit a fair amount darker. It includes the stone-cold classic single 'Head Like A Hole', plus the bangers 'Terrible Lie' and 'Sanctified'. An intriguing release that's a clear standout in Nine Inch Nails' discography, it's hard to believe this classic is over 30 years old.

Musically they have been likened to Lightning Bolt and Melt Banana and with song titles such as Be Kind, God and Meat you know that their music, along with the song's subjects, is not to be taken lightly.

Randy Holden
Population II

Population II is a 1969 solo debut from Randy Holden of Blue Cheer that has been cited as one of the earliest examples of doom-metal. He used sixteen amps to create an album of leaden dirges and heavy riffs using the sounds and rhythms from machines to give the album its mechanical heart. Out of print for decades this is ripe for rediscovery particularly for fans of the likes of Sunn 0))) and other modern day practitioners of the genre.

One of the heaviest albums at the time of 1989, the group took influence from the death metal genre to shape this thrash-terpiece.

Gagarin Kombinaatti
83-85

Turns out that before Mika Vainio formed Pan Sonic as a means to explore sonic brutalism, he was in a band called Gagarin Kombinaati, making crushing industrial music. Although the ingredients are very different, that Vainio heaviness is definitely audible. All 12 tracks taken from original cassette recordings, released on Sakho.

Melvins
Houdini

American noise (then) trio Melvins were named after a grocery store supervisor who was despised by the band member who worked under him.

Championed by grunge Gods Nirvana, 'Houdini' was essentially the band's break-through album. Reissued for your pleasure on lovely gatefold vinyl.

The Young Gods
Super Ready / Fragmenté

The Young Gods are easily Switzerland's most powerful rock band and it's no surprise they took their name from an early Swans EP. Super Ready / Fragmenté was their 2007 LP and mixes the political and poetic with an urgent and discord readily evident in tracks like I'm The Drug. If you've not heard the Young Gods before then buckle down  -it's quite the ride.

The project took them two years to make and the trio have carved out their own path which at times references their past work but creates a whole new entity. Their world view may be bleak but this carries an impressive emotional weight.

Raspberry Bulbs
Before The Age Of Mirrors

Raspberry Bulbs are a New York-based punk band from who feature members of New Jersey hardcore punks Rorschach and Californian black metal band Bone Awl. Elements of these sounds make it into their otherwise lo-fi, gritty punk sound. Before The Age of Mirrors is their new album, CD and LP on Relapse.

The Angelic Process
Weighing Souls With Sand

The Angelic Process combine the ear-bleeding guitar of My Bloody Valentine, the post-metal expansiveness of Neurosis and unstaunched emotion of Swans with complex musicality. Weighing Souls With Sand, the band’s third album, was originally released in 2007, after which the band was put on indefinite hiatus due to founding member Kris Angylus severely injuring his hand. It turned out to be the band’s final album after Angylus sadly took his own life in 2008.

Wrekmeister Harmonies
We Love To Look At The Carnage

J.R. Robinson and Esther Shaw present their fifth Wrekmeister Harmonies album, We Love To Look At The Carnage. Recorded with Swans’ Thor Harris and Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart on additional percussion and electronics, the album purports to soundtrack the feeling of night thoughts, and being unable to drift off to sleep. 

Skullflower
Purity

Black psychedelia, noise, metal, drone... Whatever you’d like to call it, Skullflower are one of thee finest exponents of it. Matthew Bower is the constant at the center of this world. Recently he has been working on the project with Samantha Davies. There’s been a whole bunch of stuff available digitally, but with Purity, they return to the physical format for the first time in two years. This one's a total stunner.

Kvelertak
Splid

Norwegian band Kvelertak have signed with Rise Records for their fourth album, Splid, which translates to Discord in English. The band run the gamut of guitar music from good ol’ rock and roll to black metal via punk rock. Let’s just say hey like to make a racket. The new album explores how stupid and greedy the human race have been and wonders where it will all end. Recorded with Kurt Ballou in Massachusetts.

Sunn O)))
Kannon

As any fool know, there’s none more heavy than Sunn O))). They’ve been collaborating a lot recently, both apart with various other projects and together with Scott Walker and Ulver, but at last we now have a pure new Sunn record! Kannon leans extra hard on the metal apparently, so look forward to that. On Southern Lord.

Sunn O)))
White2

Remastered edition of Sunn O)))’s 2004 LP ‘White2’ here. These new masters from Matt Colton give ‘White2’ the sound that it deserves, the bottom-end fatter and the whole mix fuller. As for ‘White2’ itself, this is one of Sunn O)))’s early masterpieces, a blend of the band’s purest drone-metal with experimental asides into the synthetic and the occult.

Godthrymm
Reflections

The debut full-length album from Godthrymm, the latest project from UK metal figurehead Hamish Glencross (formerly of Solstice and My Dying Bride). Formed with sometime collaborator Shaun Taylor-Steels on drums, Reflections follows the band’s A Grand Reclamation EP from a couple of years back.

Earthless
From The West

Earthless have a reputation for being a good live band. That said, so would you if you had four concert albums to your name. The latest one, From The West, contains audio captured at a gig in San Francisco on the eve of the release of March 2018’s Black Heaven LP. It’s a very Black Sabbath/Led Zeppelin kind of affair, all wailing vox and fuzzy riffs.

Rosetta
Terra Sola

Rosetta come off the back of an exhaustive touring cycle lasting nearly two years after their sixth album Utopioid with a new EP, titled Terra Sola and released on 12” vinyl. It seeks to continue to break new sonic territory for the group, veering away from the loud, spacey rock of previous releases and emphasising texture and atmosphere.

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.

Oranssi Pazuzu
Mestarin kynsi

Finland's Oranssi Pazuzu once found themselves on James Hetfield's personal Spotify playlist. Looks like he was enamoured by their swirl of '70s prog, Kraut, electronica and post-metal. The Quietus compared them to Swans and Neurosis but the names bandied around them are even more diverse. Nuclear Blast here present the fifth album from a band whose popularity continues to grow.

Carter Tutti Void
f (x)

Next tight little release from the indomitable Carter Tutti Void trio (Throbbing Gristle, Factory Floor). f(x) finds them destroying dancefloors with a sharp set of tunes that balance beat-hypnotism with icy synth melodies. This release continues a brief but powerful tradition of excellent material from these three, and is out on the Industrial Records label.

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. 

Minóy
In Search Of Tarkovsky

California-based Minóy, real name Stanley Keith Bowsza, made DIY noise music. Music as art. In Search of Tarkovsky is his 1986 album dedicated to the late Russian film director. It is an electronic sound collage which takes the listener through every emotion and every state of being. It was originally released on cassette, this is the first reissue since its initial release. Bowsza sadly died in 2010.

Inter Arma
Sulphur English

Relapse! Don’t do it! But they did do it - they went and signed Virginia metalheads Inter Arma up for another LP. Sulphur English, the band’s third full-length for the famed label, is another set of booming sludge and doom forged from black fires. Opening salvo ‘Bumgardner’ was written in memory of their late friend the Indian/Lord Mantis drummer Bill Bumgardner.

Envy
The Fallen Crimson

Envy started life as a screamo band in 1992 - before screamo was a thing. Whilst holding on to their ferocious edge, over time they have transitioned into post-rock, in keeping with their stint on Mogwai’s Rock Action label. The Fallen Crimson is the Japanese band’s 7th album and the first album of a new era, featuring three new members and the return of original vocalist Tetsuya Fukagawa.

Those Damn Crows
Point Of No Return

Sophomore studio album from South Wales-based rock quintet Those Damn Crows, following up the word-of-mouth cult success of their debut album Murder and the Motive a couple of years back. Produced by rock veterans Andy Sneap and Colin Richardson, Point of No Return emphasises soul over riffing and the more conventional demands of rock. 

Melt-Banana
Fetch

Melt Banana have long lived in a strange world entirely of their own making. They make a kind of thrashy prog-core music with yelped words over instruments thrashing out songs in previously unseen time signatures. Fetch moved on from the wild pop punk of their previous Bambi’s Dilemma to produce an even more out there approach with fractured shards of guitar electronics and crazy synths. 

Throbbing Gristle
A Souvenir Of Camber Sands

Turner Prize-nominated artists Jake and Dinos Chapman were asked to curate the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival at Camber Sands in 2004. If you were curating a festival and you heard that industrial experimentalists Throbbing Gristle had reformed, why wouldn’t you invite them to play? A Souvenir Of Camber Sands is a recording of their show from the festival.

Merzbow
Pulse Demon

Relapse presents a re-mastered version of Pulse Demon, one of Japanese noise artist Masami Akita’s most noteworthy records under his Merzbow alias. Originally released in 1996, the album was composed entirely with a fuzz box and the generation of musique concrete, without any studio trickery or manipulation. It now comes with a bonus track, ‘Extract 1’.

Lasse Marhaug
Gjota

The rumbling distortions during the opening bars of Lasse Marhaug's 'Gjota' is just a taste of the DIY boundary-free creativity to come in the Norwegian's latest slice of avant-garde noise/drone. It's an ominous release, for listeners that enjoy getting lost in a microcosm of dark rippling atmospheres.

Wayfarer
World’s Blood

Third album from Colorado black metal group Wayfarer. This time, they've made like a saunter of Cowboys and are heading west. Their thematic focus is on the great frontier and the horrors of American expansionism, something well captured in the dread and intensity of black metal. Released on Profound Lore.

Guttersnipe
My Mother The Vent

If your music needs a bit of weirdness then Guttersnipe are your people. The Leeds duo have been tantalising crowds far and near for the last few years with their blend of Aids Wolf-like racket and Whitehouse intensity. Theirs is a musical language not even invented yet so get this debut wax offering and see if you can figure it all out.

Caspar Brötzmann Massaker
Der Abend Der Schwarzen Folklore

The Caspar Brotzmann Massaker reissue program continues with Der Abend Der Schwarzen Folklore. Whilst this previous albums, The Tribe and Black Axis had their foundation in rock, albeit the most skyscraper-scaling, ear-bleeding kind, Der Abend Der Schwarzen Folklore dabbles in previously unheard brand of free-form noise, leaving those skyscrapers in piles of rubble.

Torture Chain
The Ascent Of Deimos

Complete with searingly distorted guitars and demonic vocals, Torture Chain's 'The Ascent of Deimos' is very much as satanic as its hellish name suggests. It all amounts to a mutated concoction, comprising mainly of greek black metal and a more archaic strain of American death metal. Explosive stuff.

Tombs
Monarchy of Shadows

Brooklyn black metalers Tombs describe themselves as a formation rather than a band, which makes them sound all the more fearsome. Their new EP, Monarchy of Shadows, features six racks powered by ancient anger and modern vigour. The songs tour the darkest depths of the mind and the urban environment.

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs
Viscerals

Viscerals by Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, or Pigs x 7 if you prefer, is the band’s third album, following 2018’s King Of Cowards and their 2017 debut Feed The Rats. The album sees the heavy psych-rockers really hitting their stride. A leaner, more direct sound with catchy songs built on rocking riffs. Viscerals is an apt title.

Sunn O)))
Pyroclasts

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.

Coil
Stolen & Contaminated Songs

Coil made so much good stuff when making their 1991 album Love’s Secret Domain, there were enough outtakes of sufficient quality to make another album. That album was 1992’s Stolen & Contaminated Songs. The album shows Coil’s ability to balance experimentation with tradition and give abstract ideas widescreen scope. 

SPK
Zamia Lehmanni (Songs of Byzantine Flowers)

Back before he was writing scores for films like The Chronicles Of Riddick and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Graeme Revell made mischief in Australian group SPK. 1986’s Zamia Lehmanni (Songs Of Byzantine Flowers) was pretty much a solo record on Revell’s part and saw him attempt to push the group’s industrial sound into ‘post-industrial’ territory. The hypnotic reveries he came up with come off like Arvo Pärt teaming up with Chris Carter. This new Cold Spring edition of Zamia Lehmanni (Songs Of Byzantine Flowers) represents the first physical releases of the record for over twenty-five years.

Pig Destroyer
38 Counts of Battery

Pig Destroyer I hope don't actually want to destroy pigs but their name suggest the explosive nature of their grind-core. 38 Counts of Battery (so violent aren't they) is a compilation album of their early works originally released in 2000 but now re-issued on Relapse. Contains their original 1997 demo tape and their split records with Orchid and Isis (the band not the terrorist people).

Ramleh
The Great Unlearning

More harsh nastiness from Ramleh, the power-electronics-turned-noise-rock outfit of Gary Mundy (Kleistwahr) and Anthony Di Franco (JFK). With a title that nods towards Cornelius Cardew, The Great Unlearning is a double LP of dark rock-mode Ramleh, with plenty of electronic lashings and black psychedelia, as well as (apparently) some lyrics about social media. Philip Best and Sarah Froelich (Consumer Electronics) and the whole gang are involved. 

Insect Ark
The Vanishing

The latest album from New York-based instrumentalists Insect Ark sees the group, originally consisting simply of founder member Dana Schechter, changing in line-up once again with new drummer Andy Patterson joining for fifth record The Vanishing. The result is Schechter’s most ambitious and sonically immersive full-length to date.

Ramleh
It’s Never Alright / Kerb Krawler

With Fourth Dimension supporting both Gary Mundy (Kleistwahr) and Anthony Di Franco’s (JFK) solo projects for many years, it’s a red-letter day for the label that they can release a new Ramleh record itself. Available on green coloured 7” vinyl, ‘It’s Never Alright’ and ‘Kerb Krawler’ are both prime cuts that display both sides of Ramleh i.e their power electronics/noise work and their fuzzy psyche rock trippers.
