Universal Eyes
Four Variations On ‘Artificial Society’

A line-up many may have expected never to see in the year of our lord 2018… Universal Eyes is a combination of Universal Indians and Wolf Eyes, and in this case that means Aaron Dilloway alongside John Olson and Nate Young again, as well as the vibrant power of Gretchen Gonzales-Davidson. Four Variations on ‘Artificial Society’ is a delightfully deep and murky suite of sounds: you know you’re going to love it. From Lower Floor Music.

Dylan Carlson
Conquistador

Conquistador is the debut solo album from Dylan Carson. He was a founding member of Sub Pop drone metal band, Earth and will probably forever be known as the man who gave Kurt the gun. Carson says that the album soundtracks an imaginary western. Throughout he shows his ability to create powerful widescreen sounds, but also shows his deftness at knowing when space and quiet are the right sounds. LP and CD on Sargent Horse.

Rage Against The Machine
Evil Empire

The sophomore LP from serial establishment-botherers Rage Against The Machine gets reissued. Given that the title of 1996’s Evil Empire refers to Reaganite slander of the Soviet Union and ‘Bulls On Parade’ deals with violence and wall-building at the U.S.-Mexican border, this feels like a timely re-pressing from Epic Records. This is a Rage record so even if you've not heard it before you can probably guess what it sounds like.

Various (Melvins, Pallbearer, Mark Lanegan etc.)
The Wall [Redux]

Fancy another brick? The Wall [Redux] is Magnetic Eye Records' take on everyone's favourite concept album, Pink Floyd's The Wall. The artists they got to do this speak for themselves, the biggest names being Mark Lanegan, Melvins and Pallbearer. If you always liked The Wall but reckoned it probably could've been a bit louder, this one's for you.

Stoned Jesus
Pilgrims

Napalm Records (Skindred, Alestorm) release the fourth LP from Ukrainian group Stoned Jesus. If it wasn’t apparent from their name, this band deal primarily in stoner rock and they’re definitely very pleased that Pilgrims’ second track clocks in at exactly 4:20. Stoned Jesus’ sound is not as skull-shaking as genre titans like Sleep. A lot of their music is relatively lean by the conventions of the genre - moments here could pass for Deftones.

Andrew Liles
The Flesh Creeping Gonzoid: Speciality Offal & Other Choice Cuts

Andrew Liles has worked within Nurse With Wound, Current 93, as well as with the likes of Gnod, Faust, and Cosey Fanni Tutti and many more plus his immense solo back catalogue. Here we have a massive box set of 6 CDs of unreleased material, with a bonus DVD of bonus goodies such as outtakes limited releases. Limited to only 500.

Brujeria
Matando Güeros

Straight out of 1993 is this classic of Mexican grindcore: the debut album of Brujeria. Matando Güeros, which features a photo of a genuine severed head on the cover, is all about narco and border violence, and takes an extremely anti-American position: check out the opening skit, in which a cocky American dude has a very bad time in a drug deal. Reissued on Listenable Records.

SUMAC
Love In Shadow

Fresh from their collaboration with Keiji Haino, the ex-Isis / Russian Circles / Baptists supergroup that is SUMAC hand us their third full-length album. Love In Shadow blasts forth with four lengthy and hefty pieces, which pilot an exhilarating course between tight, propulsive structure and looser abstraction. For old SUMAC fans and Haino-heads who might have just discovered them, this will hit the spot.

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters
Come & Chutney

From their name, their album title and the fact that Come & Chutney is released on ‘slurry brown’ vinyl, it’s safe to say that the three blokes behind Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters like to laugh. But did you also know that they like to fuzz? They fuzz hard on this LP, recalling Weedeater but with a little more spring in their step. Out on Riff Rock, which is less a label name than a description of what's to come.

JFK
Weapon Design

'Weapon Design' is an 8-track LP (out on Fourth Dimension) full-to-bursting with galvanised beats, labyrinthine textures and searing psychedelia. It's an agile and uncompromising record that simultaneously riffs on '80s cassette culture and brooding sci-fi films. An exciting, distinctive listen from Anthony Di Franco (aka JFK).

Rapeman
Two Nuns & A Pack Mule

They are still calling themselves that? Ok.  Well this was Steve Albini's second band after Big Black and out of all the words in the English language this is what they chose for a name. This was the only album they made and this re-issue contains 'the 'Budd' EP as a bonus. Contains a song called 'Kim Gordon's Panties'. I do hope he's grown up a bit now.  

Infernal Coil
Within A World Forgotten

The band is called Infernal Coil. Their logo is an indefinable scrawl that looks like a bundle of twigs. The LP is called Within A Forgotten World. The tracks have titles like ‘Wounds Never Close’ and ‘Bodies Set In Ashen Death’. It’s coming out on a label called Profound Lore. … Correct! The answer was: A - Death Metal.

A-Sun Amissa
Ceremony In The Stillness

More of that West Yorkshire ambient-drone-and-more goodness from A-Sun Amissa on Gizeh! Ceremony In The Stillness is the project’s perfectly named fourth full-length, and as well as those deep dark smooth atmospheres, it also features both thick riffs and actual drums in a few places, bringing another angle into the Amissa world. A very atmospheric record.

Megadeth
Peace Sells... But Who’s Buying?

Peace Sells….But Who’s Buying is the second album by U.S. thrash metal bohemoths, Megadeth and was originally released in 1986. The band, who were fronted by Dave Mustaine, found the recording process difficult due to drug issues with drummer Gar Samuelson and guitarist, Chris Poland who were ultimately fired once promotional commitments were met. Regardless of these difficulties, the band made a classic of the genre. LP on Virgin.

Conan
Existential Void Guardian

The existential void has a new guardian. Liverpool trio Conan resume channelling the bloodthirsty energy of your favourite Cimmerian barbarian on this new one for Napalm Records. Packing dual vocalists and an indefatigable fund of drop-tuned riffs, it’s quite the furious, simmering work of doomy sludge.

Rage Against The Machine
The Battle Of Los Angeles

Not too much more to say about this one. The Battle Of Los Angeles, the third studio LP by revolutionary thought’s very own Rage Against The Machine, is one of those rare records that can claim to have been both lavished with critical praise and purchased by millions upon millions of people. Both Time and Rolling Stone named it their album of the year when it was first released in 1999. Now Epic have given it a re-press. This is the one with ‘Guerilla Radio’ on it.

Iron Maiden
The Number of the Beast

You might have heard of this one. Hard to believe there once was a time when Bruce Dickinson was the new boy, fresh from Samson and awaiting judgement from the Di’Anno fans, but it’s fair to say he passed the audition. There’s a good chance that Maiden are playing the title track, Hallowed Be Thy Name or Run to the Hills in some corner of the globe right now. It might be a stretch to talk about “deep cuts” on a 14 million seller, but Children of the Damned and The Prisoner aren’t too shabby either.

Pig Destroyer
Head Cage

Sixth album from the highly lethal Pig Destroyer. On Head Cage enact their brand of grindcore in a incredibly precise and hypnotic fashion. As a unit they are absolutely undefeated. Lyricist JR Hayes takes out his frustration on the darker aspects of our world, but I'm not sure what the band's problem with our snout-having earth-mates is. 
  • Genre(s):

Death Grips
Year of the Snitch

Year Of The Snitch is the sixth album by Californian experimental hip-hop punks Death Grips. The three-piece of MC Ride, Andy Morin and Zach Hill like to give very little away about their records prior to release and the same is true here. One thing that’s guaranteed is that this will supply some aggression catharsis for our troubled times.

Judas Priest
British Steel

While Priest were certainly very commercially-minded at this point, only the churlish or terminally False could turn their nose up at the leather-clad, stud-bedecked joys on offer here. Breaking the Law and Living After Midnight might be played to death but remain agreeable artefacts of metal entryism. Rapid Fire and Steeler bookend the album with speed metal paciness, while Metal Gods and Grinder are crushing mid-tempo monsters. Even quasi-reggae experiment The Rage is a triumph. Priest matched the energy and simplicity of the NWOBHM kids and world domination ensued.

Death
Human

Death’s 1994 release pushes further into progressive territory, drafting in Sadus bassist Steve DiGiorgio and members of fusion metallers Cynic. While this direction produced the instrumental Cosmic Sea, the album might be the band’s most accessible, with tracks like Suicide Machine and Together As One among the band’s catchiest (though Kiss cover God of Thunder isn’t strictly essential). There’s plenty of good old-fashioned aggression evident too, making this one of Death’s most satisfying releases.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Death
Spiritual Healing

Each Death album represents a progressive advance in the genre that shared the band’s name. Here Chuck Schuldiner and co. focus on technical and compositional complexity rather than bludgeoning brutality, aided by the liquid leads of Wunderkind James Murphy (no, not the LCD Soundsystem guy). Lyrical content moves on from the grotesqueries of Leprosy to more psychological and social concerns. Back in 1990, it may have seemed a little polite amid newcomers like Suffocation and Cannibal Corpse as well as the burgeoning Swedish scene, but as an absolute cornucopia of quality riffs, it’s aged well.

Celtic Frost
To Mega Therion

The second album by the Swiss legends has been variously filed under thrash, black, death, and doom metal, largely because of its immeasurable influence across those subgenres. Bands as diverse as Darkthrone, Obituary and Anathema would be unimaginable without it.Tom G. Warrior and Martin Ain made a conscious leap forward from their debut Morbid Tales, with complex song structures, varied moods and tempos, and even the occasional bombastic horn part. To Mega Therion is a synergy of idiosyncrasies: an unmistakable guitar tone, snaky semi-tone riffs, verbose lyrics, and of course those trademark death grunts. The album has an intoxicating ancient and occult atmosphere, down to the iconic H.R. Giger artwork. Also, the monolithic Jewel Throne and swords ’n’ sorcery karaoke favourite Circle of the Tyrants will get you headbanging like a maniac. This reissue also includes the contemporaneous Emperor's Return EP. UH!

Obituary
Obituary

This veteran Florida institution are sometimes seen as death metal’s answer to AC/DC - reliable purveyors of their simplistic style onstage but somewhat burdened by having perfected their art on their first few albums. The self-tilting of this 2017 release seems pointed, and luckily it’s easily the most worthwhile product to bear their logo since the mid-nineties. Innovation isn’t really in their remit, but it’s hard to argue with the neck-endangering mastery of groove and dynamics on End It Now or Turned To Stone. Crushing, raw and bristling with aggression.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Mamaleek
Out Of Time

San Francisco metal outfit Mamaleek are swaying further and further from their death-metal origins. Combining deathly grunting with slow beats, samples, and melodic and versatile instrumentations, the two brothers have created a haunting take on the genre. Out of Time was recorded and mixed by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Bosse-de-Nage), and the result is as crisp as it is eclectic and weird.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Split Cranium
I’m The Devil and I’m OK

Six years on from debut LP and d-beat/anarcho-punk supergroup Split Cranium serve up the sophomore. Given that the band features members of Converge, Circle, Mammifer and many more, I’m The Devil And I’m Ok was never going to go in with a soft touch. What’s notable here is how the band balances out the ferocious screams and pounding drums with some pretty melodic riffs. Out via Mike Patton’s Ipecac Recordings (Zu, Daelek, loads more).

Echo Beds
Buried Language

Denver industrial duo, Echo Beds, found themselves locked out of their practice space by bailiffs in 2016. This was due to a seemingly unfriendly crack down on arty types and their unofficial work spaces. After turning bedrooms into recording studios, using improvised equipment to work on their ideas and being emotionally spurred on by what was happening to them and their friends, Buried Language was born. Check it out if Street Sects, Youth Code or Drab Majesty are your bag. LP on The Flenser.

Thou
Magus

Thou claim greater influence from 90s proto-grunge groups like Alice In Chains and Soundgarden than contemporaries like EYEHATEGOD, a band to whom the Baton Rouge outfit are frequently compared. Magus - Thou’s first LP since 2014’s Heathen - lands squarely between the two camps, but is also much more than that. Sludgy, abrasive and loud as heck, there's more than a little Converge in here. That is to say that Magus is modern metal par excellence. The vocalist’s screech is the first sound you hear in hell. Out via Sacred Bones.

Wetware
Automatic Drawing

Norman website visitor, meet Automatic Drawing. It’s the debut LP by Wetware (Roxy Farman & Matthew Morandi). The pair first appeared on the New York industrial scene in 2015, hamming it up with intense and provocative live shows. Distilling such live energy to record can’t be easy, but they’ve nailed the production of these compelling, clattering rhythms and discomforting vocals. There’s even a whiff of vintage industrial pastiche.

Remote Viewing
Blood Loss

Remote Viewing release their new LP via Hominid Sounds (Cattle, Casual Nun). There’s plenty of muscle gone into this one - RV contain members of Palehorse, Million Dead, Record Buying Public and a bunch of other heavy groups - and Blood Loss is a suitably hard-bitten experience. Blood-curdling shrieks, drums that sound like they’re about to burst the monitors apart, ten-tonne riffs on the cusp of stoner and doom. It’s a wild ride.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Uniform
The Long Walk

The Long Walk is Uniform’s second or third LP for Sacred Bones depending on whether you’re counting the collaborative record they made with The Body. However, don’t try and crunch the numbers while you’re actually listening to this thing. The pair make such a racket that it’s pretty much impossible to concentrate on anything else. File next to The Soft Moon and Blanck Mass.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Årabrot
Who Do You Love

On the noisiness-scale of Norwegian music, right in the middle between Mayhem and Kings of Convenience, you’ll find Årabrot, which is just to say that they use electric guitars but not pigs’ heads. Reminiscent in artsiness of Of Montreal [sic], and with a certain appreciation of the melodramatic, Who Do You Love is the emotional rollercoaster you're looking for.

Boris / Joe Volk
Split


Drug Cult
Drug Cult

Debut outing from members of Sun Of Man and Megaritual under their new guise - Drug Cult. Hazy and very very heavy indeed, this is a huge dose of psychedelics through an Electric Wizard filter. Fuzzed riffs that is a must for fans of Baba Naga and the likes. CD, LP and Limited Deluxe CD on ritual Productions.

Sunn O)))
Domkirke

Domkirke is a document of a 2007 live performance by Sunn O))) in the atmospheric environment of Bergen Cathedral. Stretching far beyond the usual palette of infinitely-amped riff-crashing, these 4 side-long tracks feature plenty of organ and the dread vocals of Attila Csihar. It is an interesting corner of the Sunn O))) canon, a welcome reissue. 2LP on Southern Lord.

Corrupted
Felicific Algorithim

Japanese doom metal destructors Corrupted present a 12” of their particular form of sludged-out distorted crush music, featuring that little bit more feedback than your average doom crew. Felicific Algorithm is designed to be played at any speed on your turntable, giving you, in a sense, twice as many tracks to enjoy! On Cold Spring.

Black Sabbath
Paranoid

Paranoid was the second album by influential british hard rock band Black Sabbath. It was originally released in 1970. It is notable for containing some of the band’s most famous tracks such as War Pigs, Iron Man and the title track which also reached the top spot in the singles charts back when you needed to shift a few units to do so.

Extreme Noise Terror
The Earache Peel Sessions

Re release on 12” vinyl only through Earache records. Through the late '80s John Peel championed many of the greats from the hardcore and grindcore scene and this vinyl houses all three of Extreme Noise Terror’s on one disc. 22 tracks of unrelenting crusty goodness spanning 1987-1990. The 2nd session featured Napalm Death’s original drummer Mick Harris.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Bell Witch
Demo 2011

Demo 2011 was the first available release from doom crew Bell Witch, and it went down very well with the community. For a demo, it has a very thick and developed sound, and is feature length (37 minutes) in size too; so it is well deserving of this vinyl reissue of 600 copies, with  updated sleeve design on The Flenser label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

OHHMS
Exist

OOHMS are here with their second album which should be a right favourite in our office.  They make heavy heavy prog with nods way back to the '70s likes of Pink Floyd and the Soft Machine and the more bang up to date the Mars Volta. Tin hat time for those too fainthearted for wiggly, wibbly progressive rock. 

Dead Cross
Dead Cross

Dead Cross (2018, Ipecac), not to be confused with Dead Cross (2017, Ipecac), is the latest headbanging release by Southern California weird hardcore/metal supergroup Dead Cross (2015 - present, Ipecac). They’re Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson and Michael Crain, and their EP consists of two hyperactive new songs and two remixes of songs from last year’s album.

Innumerable Forms
Punishment In Flesh

The cantankerous Innumerable Forms have finally made an LP. Punishment In Flesh comes a good eleven years after the band's inception, which makes sense: they release LPs at a speed worthy of a band with powerviolence/hardcore origins. Taking influence from the Scandanavian death metal of the early '90s, they seek to create a portal to that time through raw, plainly stated dissonance, going back to what gave the genre its rough edges.

Ulver
Shadows Of The Sun

Norse experimentalists Ulver rose to prominence as one of the most significant founding black metal acts of Scandinavia, before compounding their sound into traditional folk and industrial metal. With Shadows of the Sun, they were reincarnated as the electronica act they're now known as 

Orange Goblin
Coup De Grace

Orange Goblin are yr authentic british stoner metal band, as heavy and, well, as stoned as the day is long. Coup de Grace is their 2002 fourth album, and it is such a consummate riff-chugging stoner metal release that John Garcia himself, of the legends Kyuss, even lends a hand on two tracks. Vinyl reissue from Rise Above.
  • Genre(s):

Orange Goblin
Thieving From The House Of God

Orange Goblin are yr authentic british stoner metal band, as heavy and, well, as stoned as the day is long. Thieving From The House Of God arrived in 2004 as the band’s fifth album, and it found them adjusting to a smaller four-piece line-up. Of course, this merely focused the group’s riff-chugging power further. Rise Above reissue.

Orange Goblin
The Big Black

Orange Goblin are yr authentic british stoner metal band, as heavy and, well, as stoned as the day is long. The Big Black was their third album, first released in the year 2000 following production sessions with Billy Anderson. Cosmic weight is all over this release, from the space artwork to track titles like “You’ll never get to the moon in that”. Reissued on Rise Above on three sides of vinyl (the fourth contains an etching).
  • Genre(s):

Holiday Inn
Torbido

Holiday Inn are one of Rome’s finest synth-punk outfits, and they create music as ferociously DIY and direct as that Xerox-ed cover art. Torbido is real powerhouse stuff, tapping straight into the veins and jolting with wave after wave of pulsing, shouting, pumping energy. Not at all like the chain of budget hotels. Vinyl release from the Avant! and Maple Death labels.

The Body
I Have Fought Against It, But I Can't Any Longer

Portland duo The Body push their sound to yet more extremes on their latest LP. I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer sees the pair bringing in a few collaborators - Assembly of Light Choir’s Chrissy Wolpert, Sandworm’s Ben Eberie to name but two - to beef up their already mighty sound. The resulting record is a brooding, abrasive song-cycle, like The Bug & Earth teaming up with Zola Jesus. Out via Thrill Jockey.

Electric Wizard
Let Us Prey

Electric Wizard, evil doomslayers who would legalise drugs and murder if they could, first released 'Let Us Prey' in 2002. It was their fourth record and the follow-up to their renowned genre centrepiece 'Dopethrone', continuing the onslaught of punishing riffs and raw, relentless drumming. The record's been out of print for half a decade but it's now getting a reissue by Rise Above.

Birds In Row
We Already Lost The World

We Already Lost The World; Songs called things like ‘We Count So We Don’t Have To Listen’; Out via Deathwish Inc. (Converge, Deafheaven); this isn’t going to be a cheery one, is it. But it is an impassioned and often powerful performance from French group Birds In Row. The nine tracks here are a blend of post-punk and hardcore that recalls Idlewild and Preoccupations. Available as a tape, a CD and an LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Coil / The New Blockaders / Vortex Campaign
The Melancholy Mad Tenant

Big old noisy team-up from 1984, bringing together the great and mysterious Coil with avant-smashers The New Blockaders and Vortex Campaign. This release went down in noise history as a big classic, and is now reissued, in nice remastered form. Plus, as a bonus, everything else that Vortex Campaign ever recorded (including some unreleased stuff)! Infinite Fog reissue.

Wolves in the Throne Room
BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini

Southern Lord drop an LP of Wolves In The Throne Room live cuts. For their 2011 BBC Session the Washington group surprised everyone by coming through with wildly different interpretations of two tracks from their Celestial Lineage LP (also 2011). Rather than performing ‘Prayer Of Transformation’ and ‘Thuja Magus Imperium’ as thick-as-tar black metal numbers that also function as paeans to humankind’s fatal failings, for this session the tracks are transformed into thick-as-tar black metal numbers that also function as paeans to humankind’s fatal failings … on ice!

Botch
An Anthology Of Dead Ends

Botch were a metalcore band who spent the turn of the millennium making music that was equal parts chaotic and melodic. They released two full length records, 'American Norvoso', as well as one of hardcore's truest classics, 'We Are The Romans'. In 2002, they put out their final release, the 'An Anthology Of Dead Ends' EP, which told listeners exactly where Botch were headed: nowhere. It's now available again through Hydra Head, and is recommended for anyone with even a passing interest in metalcore; or just for anyone who's worn out their Converge collection.

Visions & Phurpa
Monad

Apparently (and disappointingly) not a DJ Screw-style chopping and screwing of the back catalogue of Mission Of Burma, the 100th release from Berlin imprint Cyclic Law is a coming-together between label boss Visions and shamanic Russian choir Phurpa. The combination of droning throat-song, portentous ambiences and post-rock soundscapes makes Monad a creepy, stirring listen.

Nine Inch Nails
Bad Witch

Tonight at the Roadhouse, it’s the 22.85 Centimetre Nails! And it sounds indeed as if the association with Twin Peaks has rather rubbed off on potty-mouthed T. Reznor & Pals. Lead tune ‘Got Break Down the Door’ sets acid bass and very noirish atmospherics - particularly the lonesome brass a jazzhouse croon from Trent - to an agitated tempo. The NIN style is intact, but with adventurous feelers out.

SabaSaba
SabaSaba

While looking into this band I have learned there are TWO acts called SabaSaba so to avoid any confusion, no, this is not the latest album from the Ugandan rapper. Rather this is the debut from the Torino based psychedelic dub band. SabaSaba are part of Italy's tradition of creepy and cinematic music that has historically only found a home as film music.

The Brooklyn-based three-piece balance dark, powerful, light and delicate with aplomb. Limited edition white vinyl LP on Ipecac.

Thought Broadcast
Social Acid

Thought Broadcast are an industrial, post-punk band which create dissonant, churning sounds and Social Acid is perhaps the  most raw album yet. Comprising of crunching machinery type noises, Social Acid is dark and experimental and unlike anything else you’ll hear this year. Limited to 100 cassette copies.  

Megadeth
Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good – The Final Kill

The story is now woven into the annals of rock history - Dave Mustaine gets kicked out of Metallica, forms Megadeth out of spite, blows most of the money that’s meant to go on recording the band’s debut LP on booze and drugs and then turns in a poorly-produced but still tough-as-hell thrash metal LP entitled Killing Is My Business … And Business Is Good. This ‘Final Kill’ version of the 1985 album sees Mark Lewis fix the shaky mixing and also includes 1986/87 live takes, demos and the long-omitted cover of ‘These Boots Were Made For Walkin’’.

Orange Goblin
The Wolf Bites Back

Ben, Joe, Martyn and Chris don’t particularly sound like a bunch of stoner metalers, but put them under the banner of Orange Goblin and they grow some sharp teeth to match their long hair and tats. The Wolf Bites Back is the London band’s ninth long player. It was recorded on analogue equipment and features a guest performance from ex-Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell. Limited edition blue vinyl LP and digipak CD versions are available alongside standard black vinyl and jewel case CD versions on Candlelight.

Witchskull
Coven’s Will

Any guesses? Yep that’s right, Coven’s Will by Witchskull is heavy riff-chugging stoner metal! Coven’s Will is positively dripping with mystical supernaturalism and overdriven guitar chugs, the kind of thing that could overwhelm an unprepared mind.

Sepultura
Arise (Expanded Edition)

Brazilian metal band Sepultura originally released their fourth album, Arise, in 1991. It had the sound of a band really getting it together and was the album that multiplied their fan base. This expanded edition features the original album, gloriously remastered, with 28 previously unreleased tracks on the CD version. The Double LP version will have fewer additional tracks. On Rhino.

ASG
Survive Sunrise

If you like Jane's Addiction, you're going to love North Carolina rockers ASG. 'Survive Sunrise', their first album in five years, expands on their trademark blend of southern-fried alt-rock and earworm hooks, weaving together soaring melody and summery riffs to electrifying effect. An infectious record, by an hard-rocking band.

  • ASG

Bolt Thrower
Realm Of Chaos

Originating in Coventry, UK in the 1980’s Bolt Thrower went on to release Realm Of Chaos in 1989. This record can be described as a mix of early heavy metal that combines thrash beats and double bass drumming alongside heavily distorted guitars and shouted vocals. It is available once again on Vinyl LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Uniform & The Body
Mental Wounds Not Healing

Serial heavyweight collaborators The Body move onto their next hosts in the form of Uniform, after the two groups toured Europe together. The songs for Mental Wounds Not Healing were built up back and forth, until these monstrous music makers were virtually fused into one powerhouse entity. You know what to expect, dive in people. On Sacred Bones.

Young Widows
Decayed: Ten Years of Cites, Wounds, Lightness, and Pain

This 15-track collection charts the first decade of Young Widow's career, and mines their vast catalogue of singles, b-sides, splits and rare songs, including four previously unreleased tracks. This record maps out the band's evolution form post-hardcore to pos-punk monsters, their genre-hopping and mastery of technique attesting to their longevity. 

Baptists
Beacon Of Faith

First of all, beautiful album art. Beacons of Faith is the third record from Baptists. Following pretty much the same sound as the bands' previous records, this is one that you don't want to miss. Atmospheric and apocalyptic, this record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and is released on Southern Lord.

Contract In Blood: A History Of UK Thrash Metal

Cherry Red Records with another box set here. Thrash metal from the UK has a tough time of it. Seen as a second-class scene when compared to those of the U.S.A. or Brazil, even the larger acts - Venom, Onslaught etc. - have received comparatively little global renown. These five CDs look to change all that. Accompanied by an informative booklet and released concurrently with a book of the same name, Contract In Blood contains studio recordings, demos and live takes by both big-hitters and small-fry from the world of British thrash. Some of the cuts date back to the early 80s, and ten have never been previously released.

Raw Ambassador
Shadows Of Evil

Antonio Barbetta’s Raw Ambassador moniker holds no punches or pretences, with releases on Reach Another System, Sama, and UN.T.O. he follows his namesake with raw and hard industrialised techno that is specifically made for underground clubs with strobes and cages, with an air of 80s doom. 12” on Mannequin.

Kayo Dot
Hubardo

Originally released in 2013, the seventh album by Toby Driver’s crew spans three pieces of vinyl and a vast array of stylistic ground. Combining seething black metal, choral vocals, angular post rock, serpentine jazz, psychedelic chaos, brooding goth, crushing doom, and much more into a progressive and multi-faceted whole, it’s the summation of their work to this point. A staggeringly expansive hundred minutes.

Ordre Etern
Revolució Soterrada

Ordre Etern are a product of the current Spanish political climate (explicit shout-outs to Goya and Lorca are made in the press release). They aren’t too happy about it apparently, and express this through good old-fashioned industrial drum pounding and vocal howling, with decent amounts of electronics too. Involving former Nurse With Wound collaborator Victor Hurtado. On Magia Roja / Tesla Tapes.

Melvins
Stag

A welcome vinyl reissue of 1996's Stag; Melvins' 8th studio album and the last to be released on a major label (they were dropped by Atlantic the following year). American trio / sometimes four-piece Melvins were named after a supermarket supervisor that a band member worked under, and despised. Get yourself hooked up with this double gatefold edition, mastered from the original analog tapes. Or, the single LP (as per the original pressing) on Music On Vinyl.

AILS
The Unraveling

Bay Area avant-metallists Ludicra called it quits around the start of the 2010s, but vocalist Laurie Shanaman and guitarist Christy Cather still had something left in the tank. Now they’ve got a few mates together and ground out this bracing LP as AILS. The dual-screeching on display here is blood-curdling stuff, and when coupled with the band’s mix of hardcore punk, thrash metal and prog-metal, it makes The Unraveling a thrilling listen.

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.

Close To The Noise Floor - Formative UK Electronica 1975-1984

Close To The Noise Floor - Formative UK Electronica 1975 - 1985 takes ‘electronica’ as a nice and broad term: this compilation ranges from Throbbing Gristle to Spoon Fazer to Blancmange, with the intention of showing off the whole range of the period, from the familiar to the forgotten. 4 disc box-set on Cherry Red.

Mayhem
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas

An entirely crucial foundational text of black metal: the first album by Mayhem! With a release history clouded with murders and suicides (how trve kvlt can you get?), De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas still stands as a mighty blast of icy Norwegian power. The line-up for the album’s recording includes both Attila Csihar (later working with Sunn O)))) and Varg Vikernes of Burzum. Vinyl reissue on Back on Black.

Mayhem
Deathcrush

Reissue of Deathcrush, the debut EP of Norwegian black metal legends Mayhem and apparently the first studio release of any band in the scene. It’s a quick and speedy blast of a record, featuring a surprising opening in the form of a version of a Conrad Schnitzler piece.... followed shortly afterwards by a song called ‘Chainsaw Gutsfuck’. Vinyl reissue on Back On Black.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Svalbard
It's Hard To Have Hope

It’s Hard to Have Hope. Indeed it is, Bristol-based crust/hardcore quartet Svalbard. Indeed it is. From revenge porn and unpaid internships to pro-life campaigners, the group take square aim at the injustices of such controversial topics in a heavy, dramatic and deeply frustrated bunch of cathartic outbursts.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Witchsorrow
Hexenhammer

Reinforced doominations from Witchsorrow see them go harder and heavier than usual, seemingly wanting to block off the easy routes and access points one might usually find. Hexenhammer is a declaration of the band's favourite genre hallmarks and was recorded with metal overlord Chris Fielding, who's helped out folk metal band Primordial and stoner legends Electric Wizard.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Age Of Taurus
The Colony Slain

Let me tell you, being a Taurus ain’t easy. You live in constant fear of change, of disruption, and of movement. The last thing we need is an epoch in which the defining characteristics are shared with the bull sign. But doom-metallers Age Of Taurus clearly think differently. On The Colony Slain, their follow-up LP to the light-hearted romp that was Desperate Souls For Tortured Times, they make such a heavy racket that it could shake the earth (sign).

Exploring Jezebel
On A Business Trip To London

Due to it’s sexually explicit material, this uncensored release from Exploring Jezebel comes with a warning that it is for ADULTS ONLY. As if that’s not already cool enough ‘On A Business Trip To London’ comes crashing into your deepest and most primal instincts from the blackest of black vinyl (no idea what this means but assume that it’s very very dark black).
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Ghost
Prequelle

This record promises to delve into even darker (well, I say darker. I mean dark with glitter) territory than their previous records, and looking at the sleeve, I can very well imagine that it does. This record is available on a very limited edition gold coloured vinyl LP with a 7", a slightly less limited edition clear and silver swirl vinyl LP (no 7" with this one) and, of course on good ol' CD. Released on Spinefarm.

From Beyond
The Band From Beyond

From Beyond trace their supernatural origin back to Houston, Texas. The spooky forest and neon text on the album’s cover art has an eerie, Twin Peaks-y atmosphere to it, while the early 90s hard rock style of the music also pulls off a sinister vibe with John Carpenter-esque keyboards and a lot of reverb on the lead vocals.

The Bug vs Earth
Concrete Desert

This is a total dream-come-true collaboration for fans of pulverizingly heavy music: Dylan ‘Extra Low Frequency Version’ Carson’s Earth project and Kevin ‘Skeng’ Martin’s The Bug, producing together. After two tracks together last year, the pair have now made a full album, and it’s a seething, bristling blast of a listen. The 2LP vinyl edition comes with an exclusive bonus 12” with a JK Flesh remix.

Saturn
Beyond Spectra

Mixing Judas Priest riffery with a psychedelic groove, there is certainly a nod to their 70s heroes here, but Saturn’s sophomore full length hold their cannons facing firmly towards the future. Good old leather jacket and denim pants heavy metal come rock and roll here, hell… leather pants, V-shaped guitars, and fists in the air.

So Pitted
neo

Debut full-length from So Pitted, a Seattle trio with heavy chops. neo drips with drawl and distortion, the members of the band readily trading instruments and vocal duties. CD and LP editions, plus a special, white vinyl ‘Loser Edition’, available only via independent record shops. On Sub Pop.

Wolves in the Throne Room
Two Hunters

Wolves In The Throne Room’s second LP Two Hunters is the first thing they released on Southern Lord (Sunn O))), Sleep). The band’s union with the metal mega-label would go on to yield two more full-lengths and a couple of EPs, and every bit of it is brilliant. If you’re unfamiliar with the Wolves In The Throne Room sound then Two Hunters is as good a place to start as any. Monolithic, sky-shaking black/doom metal that will make everything else you listen to sound puny.
