Boris
Attention Please

'Attention Please' is the seventeenth studio album from Japanese musical chameleons Boris. The trio are widely known for their constantly shape-shifting style, covering genres as far afield as psychedelia, shoegaze, post-metal, drone and stoner metal often within the same song. Released on the same day as their second 'Heavy Rocks' album, 'Attention Please' is more in the vein of 'New Album' with it's shimmering noise pop and shoegaze stylings than the raw stoner rock of 'Heavy Rocks'. The album is the only Boris record to feature vocals exclusively from lead guitarist Wata.

Tankard
The Morning After

BMG’s Noise Records reissue series continues with the 1988 third full length from Frankfurt’s booze-soaked thrash maniacs. Their propensity for humour doesn’t detract from furious riffing, every bit as vicious as that of more serious-minded contemporaries Kreator and Sodom.  This edition also includes the following year’s Alien EP. Double LP, yellow / red and blue / green splatter, or double CD.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

All Pigs Must Die
Hostage Animal

All Pigs Must Die are a ferocious heavy ensemble that features members of bands as notable as Converge, Bloodhorse, and The Hope Conspiracy. Hostage Animal is their newest statement of bleak fury, packed full of metal riffs and crusty hardcore punk punch. Ten tracks and no mercy. Released by Southern Lord.

Nocturnal Emissions
Nocturnal Emissions

The Nigel Ayers-led industrial pioneers have much in common with their better-known peers Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire, and seemed to arrive at similar innovations in recorded sound and performance almost simultaneously and independently. Unlike both, Nocturnal Emissions have survived as an ongoing and resolutely underground concern through the decades. This 22-track comp of their early work takes us through primitive electronics, rudimentary sampling, mangled tapes, textual invective, and lashings of Cold War unease and associated griminess.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

YOB
The Great Cessation

Following their 2005 split, the Oregon doom trio reconvened to unleash their fifth album in 2009. It’s a particularly fine example of Mike Scheidt’s expertise in crafting crushing extended riff-fests, tempered with nuanced and spacey quieter passages. Both double LP and CD versions include the two bonus tracks previously only available on the original vinyl version. If you’re not familiar, this is well worth a go if you’re a fan of Sleep, Electric Wizard, or Om.

Tankard
Zombie Attack

Frankfurt thrashers Tankard seem too often overlooked these days despite an ongoing and prolific career, so their 1986 debut is a welcome entry in the Noise Records reissue campaign. Alcohol-fueled fun is combined with genuine thrashing savagery on the likes of the deathless beerhall anthem (Empty) Tankard. Clear / red splatter LP or digipak CD.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Electric Wizard
Wizard Bloody Wizard

Dorset doom metalers Electric Wizard released their last album, Time To Die, amid contractual wranglings with their label. It was a tough time for the band. Three years later and the way is clear for them to do what they do best. Wizard Bloody Wizard is their Black Sabbath-referencing ninth album, and sees the band rocking just as hard but freed from previous shackles.

Alessandro Cortini & Masami Akita
Untitled

Masami Akita (King Merzbow himself) and Alessandro Cortini (of Nine Inch Nails) both own an EMS Synthi, and this Untitled release finds them each using the EMS exclusively to produce four sides of seething noisy electronics. The vintage analogue equipment is totally exploited, with vivid results that will interest synth fans and noise fans in equal measure. Double LP on Important Records, presented in a metallic shimmer-print sleeve.

Nine Inch Nails
Not The Actual Events

Not The Actual Events is a Nine Inch Nails EP released in 2016, that Mr Reznor reckons is part of a return to some of the sounds and textures the band were using back in the industrial metal days of the 90’s. That’ll be very welcome news to some fans, so get your hands on the CD (and now vinyl!) editions of Not The Actual Events, containing twenty minutes of material.

Black Sabbath
The End

The final live performance of Black Sabbath, recorded at the end of a triumphant Farewell Tour in (where else?) Birmingham. This documentation is available in a veritable cornucopia of formats, combining audio and video options across various combinations of CD, LP, DVD and Blu-Ray formats, Plus the option of a box-set packed with material, plectrums, a badge, a booklet… So much Sabbath to enjoy. The End is released by Eagle Rock.

S.P.K.
Working Cycle Transmission

Something of a motherload for you S.P.K. heads out there: 5 12”s and 1 10” in a big box set, comprehensively summing up the live sound of S.P.K. circa 1987 with three live shows, grabbed from the soundboard (so you know it’ll sound right). You’ve never heard these recordings before, and with a pressing of only 500, not to be repeated, you may not hear them again if you don’t move swiftly...

Conan
Man Is Myth (Early Demos)

Liverpool’s Conan are one of the most consistently uncompromising doom bands to emerge in recent years. The trio’s austere brand of heaviness is in the Sleep tradition,with the battle fetish of High On Fire. In the wake of last year’s third album Revengeance, this compilation collects 2009 rehearsal recordings and studio material from 2012.

Necro Deathmort
Overland

After releases on Distraction, Extreme Ultimate, and Rocket, London based two piece Necro Deathmort bring their 8th full length to extreme label Profound Lore. Sharing similar traits to acts such as Ulver, The Haxan Cloak, Atari Teenage Riot and Dalek, they are genre melders, with free reign across heavy synthetic beats, dark noise, crushing doom and drone.

Drunk In Hell
Drunk In Hell

It was starting to feel like the filthmongering Drunk In Hell would never release an album but here we go. A doom metal band (but only for lack of better terminology) high on hate and skronk, they play their own bunch of broken parts to assemble euphoric half-stumbles of heavy. Much excitement.

Scattered Purgatory
Sua-Hiam-Zun

Taiwanese duo Scattered Purgatory make dense droning musics defined by humidity, ritual, and shared love of ambient and industrial music. Sua-Hiam-Zun is a deep trip through many layers of synthesised textures. Certainly worthy of being your next drone purchase. Vinyl LP release, courtesy of the good people of Guruguru Brain.

Odonis Odonis
No Pop

Stark stuff here on Odonis Odonis’ fourth album release. The set-up for the No Pop recording sessions was sparse, with just a basic array of synths and drum machines used to put meat on the bones of musical sketches and ideas. The results are lots of fun, despite the air of exciting malevolence that hangs over the project. On Felte.

Converge
The Dusk In Us

Their first album in five years, The Dusk In Us is the latest release from Converge. They certainly remain a big part of that metal and maths rock scene and they always will, however this record almost takes a Dillinger Escape Plan turn - for the better may I add - which gives the whole record an added kick. Available on black vinyl LP, indigo vinyl LP and CD and released on Epitaph. 

Sepultura
Roots (Expanded Edition)

After the tremendous success of Chaos A.D., this 1996 album saw Sepultura taking a further step away from their thrash metal, um, roots, with a groove-based approach that married traditional Brazilian rhythms and chants with contemporary nu-metal stylings. Guests included Mike Patton and members of Korn and Limp Bizkit. It’s a divisive but undeniably bold and influential album. This edition is remastered and expanded, with an extra disc of demos, instrumentals and live cuts.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Unsane
Sterilize

It’s the eighth studio album from the NYC noise rockers Unsane and they don’t seem to be letting off steam. Sterilize sees the band still as fiery and gnarly as they were back in 1988, with their mix of punk, noise, metal and hardcore punching through on this release on Southern Lord. 

Oxbow
Thin Black Duke

Thin Black Duke follows the trend of all Oxbow albums in being so unpredictable as to what direction the record will follow. What can only be described as a mix of alternative rock, indie and even some shoegaze thrown in for good measure, this is an album that shows how musically cultured and mature Oxbow have become. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Kleistwahr
Down But Defiant Yet

'Down But Defiant Yet' manages to tread into numerous corners of rock and experimental music in a short space of time, with a meandering twin guitar opening giving way to avant and post rock styles via a healthy dose of noise and atmosphere. Whilst a contemporary release, here the band's history is well represented.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Bruce Russell
Metallic OK

Bruce Russell is one third of the fabulous New Zealand abject noise / unrock band The Dead C, which means anything he does is automatically worth investigating. Metallic OK is a juicy double-size portion of Russell’s solo business, incorporating good old feedback guitar squall but also detailed musique concrete adventures. Double CD on Glass Records Redux.

Perturbator
New Model

The forlorn legacy of Vangelis’ Blade Runner soundtrack sinks ever deeper into the world of Gen-Y EDM acrobatics, courtesy of Perturbator, an artist to whom the slightest restraint must seem an exceptionally old-fashioned notion. On New Model, the Parisian offers up six cuts of hyperbolically sour cybergrapes, packed to the gills with multiple tempos, motifs and interludes. Aggressive, edgy, dropstep electronica for cyberpunk parties.

Metallica
Master Of Puppets

Master Of Puppets by Metallica was originally released in 1986. It has grown in reputation to be widely regarded as the zenith of thrash metal. Available on 180g LP and standard CD, but there’s also a shelf-threatening Deluxe LP box set with 3 LPs, 10 CDs a cassette and two DVDs. With this you’ll get a slew of unreleased stuff, demos, live stuff, an interview lyrics and badges. There will also be a 3 CD version with rough mixes, demos and live stuff in addition to the original album.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

The Obsessed
The Obsessed

Doom metal doesn’t get much truer or more essential than the debut from the legendary Maryland trio. Though recorded in 1985, the album wasn’t released until 1990, after frontman Wino had left Saint Vitus and decided to revive his former band. Whereas Vitus were defined by Dave Chandler’s ultra-minimal, icy riffing, The Obsessed’s mid-paced groove has a more bluesy, soulful and subtly psychedelic bent. Less well known than some of their influences and successors, but necessary for fans of Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Cathedral et al. The double CD includes an ‘84 demo and ‘85 live set, which are also included as a download with the LP version.
  • Genre(s):

The Body & Full of Hell
Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light

There’s something very suited to Chicago label Thrill Jockey about Ascending A Mountain of Heavy Light, a collaboration between The Body & Full of Hell. Unsettling soundscapes punctuated with sudden bursts of abrasive sound, hmm, I reckon fans of the label’s output will dig this. There also some guest appearances from Lightning Bolt’s Ben Chippendale, Assembly of Light Choir’s Chrissy Wolpert and Sandworm’s Ben Eberle. LP pressed on virgin vinyl or CD in typical Thrill Jockey packaging.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Iron Monkey
9-13

Iron Monkey were, and continue to be a pillar of the stoner/sludge genre. After releasing two albums on Earache they called it a day in 1999. Now returning 18 years later with 9-13 as a three piece, and whilst Johnny Morrow is no longer with us they reclaim their crown with their inimitable nihilistic groove. LP and CD on Relapse.

Throbbing Gristle
The Taste of TG (A Beginner's Guide to the Music of Throbbing Gristle)

Intrigued by these noise-industrial-experimental pioneers you keep hearing about but a bit intimidated by their spiky and confusing discography? Well worry no more, and come get a Taste of TG with this ‘Beginner’s Guide’ compilation, featuring highlights from throughout the Throbbing Gristle oeuvre. Not quite ‘greatest hits’, but all the big numbers are here. Reissued by Mute.

Conan
Monnos

Conan have committed their filthy, ocean-sized sound to wax (and the slightly less cvlt compact disc) twice thus far- with more fetid output always on the horizon. First came the hulking mass of debut album Horseback Battle Hammer (Throne, Aurora Borealis), followed by a split with like-minded sludge-lords, Slomatics (Head of Crom, Burning World). In December 2011 Conan returned to the remote wilderness of Foel Studio, Wales and into the capable hands of producer Chris Fielding for their next album which is to be released on Burning World Records in Spring 2012.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Slomatics
Futurians Live At Roadburn

Roadburn festival in Tilburg, Holland, really is a crucial place for the gnarlier end of heavy music, and it has been good to see documentation released recently of various bands giving their best to the Roadburn audiences. Here we have Slomatics doing their dense sludgy thing Live At Roadburn 2017, sounding as great as they ever have.

False
Untitled

Featuring members of Dresden and Cokskar, False are well known for their unrelenting black metal. With the average track length hitting the thirteen minute mark their second album Untitled plays out in acts of depressive aggression. recorded live, the emotional bleakness is palpable. Limited repress double LP on Gilead.

Wolves In The Throne Room
Thrice Woven

American black metal band Wolves In the Throne Room bring their latest full length album of genre pushing, melancholic and intense audio maelstrom. Their first album in 6 years Trice Woven features guest vocal performances from Steve Von Till of Neurosis and Anna Von Hausswolff. For fans of Oathbreaker, Deafheaven, Ash Borer.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Haemorrhage
We Are The Gore

Spanish gore-grind band Haemorrhage bring their seventh full length album, and their first in 6 years. These guys have quite a unique take on the genre, mixing the pig like guttural growls and blistering speed with groovy verses and squealing guitar solos. Fear not though, there is plenty of the fast stuff and cymbal stab intros.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Opium Warlords
Droner

Atmosphere and destruction clash here in a cold whirlwind of out there bluesy doomed metal and exploratory abstraction. Evoking themes of folklore, solemn histories and distant lands, the album tells a story like a film or a quest, lurching through dynamic peaks and sombre lows, with all-powerful grace.
  • Genre(s):

Sepultura
Chaos A.D. (Expanded Edition)

Belo Horizonte in Brazil is famous for two things: England’s disastrous 2014 world cup campaign and Brazilian metal band Sepultura. It is the latter we’re here to talk about however, as their classic fifth album from 1993, Chaos A.D. is being reissued as a 2LP or 2CD set. It is remastered and features 17 bonus tracks including 9 face-melting live tracks and a memorable cover of Black Sabbath’s Symptom of the Universe. Essential metal.

Skinny Puppy
Remission

As well as the fact that cEvin key found a unique and innovative way of spelling Kevin, Skinny Puppy were musically innovative too fusing bits of new wave, techno and film noir into a sample based industrial racket. This is their debut missive and has now been re-unleashed on vinyl for the first time in 25 years. 

Skinny Puppy
Bites

'Bites' was the second missive from industrial music clatterers Skinny Puppy. They fused all kinds of musics including new wave and film noir with innovative ahead of it's time sampling. This one contains their first underground hit 'Assimilate' and is now available on vinyl for the first time in over 25 years. 

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Vol. 1

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats are a band so firmly dedicated to their heavy rock history that they originally released Vol. 1 on the exact forty year anniversary of the first Black Sabbath album, on Friday the 13th of February in 2010. Seven years later, that limited CDr release has been upgraded to a fully remastered CD and vinyl reissue, on the Rise Above label!

Ufomammut
8

Unrelenting doomlords Ufomammut cut to the excruciatingly slow chase by naming their record 8 and leaving it there. It's eight tracks, each a self-contained sludge treatise of its own, coming together to prove them the master of creating suffocatingly heavy environments. Forty-eight minutes of crushing their listeners like bugs from a band who've been in the business nearly twenty years.

Nick Klein
The Lonesome Dealer

Nick Klein comes to the dancefloor from a performance and sound-art background, mixing up noise-damaged industrial techno with a real kick to it. The 4 tracks of The Lonesome Dealer are heavy and woozy and carefully constructed for precision impact. This 12” is released by Luke Younger (aka Helm)’s Alter label.

Wolf Blood
Wolf Blood

Menacing sludgy metal from Minneapolis 4-piece Wolf Blood. The initial pressing of their debut album (on cassette) sold out in just a few days, apparently. This vinyl release comes ahead of an extensive US tour and it's brutal, loud, sinister and feral. If you play it backwards you can just make out the voice of Satan himself reciting the Lord's Prayer in Transylvainian. Probably. On Burning World Records. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Bong
We Are, We Were And We Will Have Been

‘We Are, We Were And We Will Have Been’ continues irregular tonal experimentalist Bong’s disturbingly solemn delivery of prolonged, mesmerising drone. The record comprises of two twenty minute journeys into the sonic wasteland that is Bong’s melting glacial world as the listener is swept away through the power of residual distortion and ethereal synths.

Wold
Postsocial

Evil, hissing and ear-crackling black metal is on offer from 'Postsocial', a record that comes out of the genre's hallmarks but makes them even more extreme -- this is, if anything, harsh noise, a wall of impenetrable noise and a collection of wind tunnels blocking out any melody and leaving behind nothing more than an onslaught of piercing vocals. Wold continue to abstract black metal beyond the point of return.

Sheavy
The Electric Sleep

Canadian stoner metal at its finest, that is sHeavy. Known for their frantic vocals and relentless, endless riffs, the band have earned their place in stoner rock cannon. Thankfully, 2015 will see the reissue of their critically acclaimed The Electric Sheep from 1998, which was never released on vinyl. Until now, of course.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

With The Dead
Love From With The Dead

The second full length album from Lee Dorrian (Cathedral) fronted supergroup With The Dead. With Tim Bagshaw (ex-Electric Wizard) and new members Leo Smee (Chrome Hoof) and Alex Thomas (ex-Bolt Thrower/Bat For Lashes). Insanely heavy, destructive and nihilistic, head crushing riffs. LP on Rise Above.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Planning For Burial
Desideratum

Planning for Burial are forerunners of the gloomgaze genre. Desideratum is their second album following on from Statement of Purpose, which was released in 2010. Planning for Burial are essentially a one-man bedroom project, that man being Tom Wasluck. The music takes in every gloomy genre from drone to goth to ensure that the gloominess is very real. Desideratum is available on vinyl LP.

Spotlights
Seismic

Husband and wife team Mario and Sarah Quintero have been sat at home worrying about the state of the world. But instead of blanking it out with some Celebrity Love Island they've made an album of ultra intense dream rock that has garnered comparisons to Hum, My Bloody Valentine and Isis (the band...as the press release helpfully points out). 

Agoraphobic Nosebleed
Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope

Agoraphobic Nosebleed are a premium grindcore band, no mistake about it. Their 2002 second record Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope (a memorable title and no mistake) flares through almost 40 tracks in 33 minutes, so you know that it’ll be proper grind. Baby blue coloured vinyl reissue on Relapse.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Celeste
Misanthrope(s)

I'll try and keep this description a little less cluttered than the press release that requires a PhD in English Language to decipher what the actual f*** its going on about. Basically, this is a reissue of Misanthrope(s) by Celeste with a slightly new album art, that available on both CD and double vinyl LP that includes a download code. It really needn't be that difficult.

Nazoranai
Beginning To Fall In Line Before Me, So Decorously, The Nature Of All That Must Be Transformed

Third long player from the power trio / avant-rock supergroup comprising of Keiji Haino (Fushitsusha), Oren Ambarchi and Stephen O'Malley (Sunn O))). This recording captures these titans in all their electrifying, shredding and meditative glory at at SuperDeluxe in Tokyo. Released on U.S imprint Superior Viaduct's sister label W.25TH, complete with a download card and glorious artwork by Lars Teichmann.

John Wall & Mark Durgan
Contrapt

Lovers of sound detritus John Wall and Mark Durgan finally return to their collaborative endeavours with Contrapt, a seven-track missive made through improvisations made over three years. The timespan reflects in the record a structure and narrative in spite of the unprepared approach.

Neurosis
The Word As Law

Reissue of Neurosis’s second full length album The Word As Law. Released in 1990 this was still a precursor album to the more avant garde doom laden band we know today, but they were still pioneering, mixing punk and hardcore fury with metal musicality and brunt. Remastered and released through Neurot.

Dälek
Endangered Philosophies

Dalek have long been one of our favourite bands here at the Towers. They have constantly been striving to blend Public Enemy styled socially conscious hip-hop with the sorts of vicious noise that appears on records by the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Flying Saucer Attack and Young Gods. It's an intoxicating brew that never loses it's power. This is their 7th album and sees them back in Ipecac records. 

Wolf Eyes
Strange Days II

Noise mongering stalwarts Wolf Eyes are constantly releasing material, and they aren’t about to stop now. Straight after releasing their latest full length Undertow they back it up with this two track EP made up of purely abstract electronic experimentation. Noisy, of course. Vinyl on Lower Floor.

Massimo Pupillo, Alexandre Babel & Caspar Brötzmann
Live at Candy Bomber Studios, Vol. 1

Three is a good number; there are a lot of trios in the world, so it must be. This one is a particularly extreme assembly, offering bassist Massimo Pupillo, percussionist Alexandre Babel and guitarist Casper Brötzmann in gruesome unison. A euphoric racket is to be expected along the lines of the structure-hating Thurston Moore.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Dead Cross
Dead Cross

ANOTHER supergroup fronted by Mike Patton (Faith No More, Fantomas) with Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Misfits, Suicidal Tendencies), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Head Wound City) and Michael Crain (Retox). Enough name dropping. Think Fantomas but with Justin Pearson… wait.. It is furious and completely batshit… but with less crazy electronics, more riffs, and Lombardo’s double pedal given it’s full use.
  • Genre(s):
  • Metal / Noise / Industrial / Extreme

Cloakroom
Time Well

Indiana based gloomers Cloakroom move to Relapse records for their second full length release. A heady mix of shoegaze, downtempo indie and doom, Time Well  brings the band’s mix of Earth’s expansive atmospherics, the song focus, and vocal prowess of The National and Low, and the Jesu’s fuzzy heaviness.

Boris
Dear

New Boris album! Dear, released in the band’s twenty-fifth anniversary year, was distilled from three album’s worth of material down to this single CD (or double LP) statement. It’s a real blast of a thing, as heavy and crunchy as ever. Apparently the band were considering wrapping things up, but writing and recording Dear invigorated them: now it can invigorate you too! On Sargent House.

Usnea
Portals Into Futility

Portals Into Futility is the third LP from Portland's doom-er four-piece USNEA. These guys are into their sci-fi in a big way but know full well the horrendous meeting-point with modern futile reality. 5 songs. 56 minutes of well-crafted and supremely soul-destroying doom-sludge. The guys dip into dissonance, varied vocal structures and cinematic composition. But be not mistaken, they keep their monolithic heaviness, brutality and mournful melodicism intact. RIYL: YOB, Thou, Disembowelment, Inverloch. Gatefold double LP / CD on Relapse.

Destruction Unit
Negative Feedback Resistor

How the hell is that for a name: Negative Feedback Resistor by Destruction Unit! Pow! Brutal noise-punk-rock that charges along with hardly a care. This is the group’s second album, and it arrives with strong anti-establishment political vibes and amps that are turned up quite far. On Sacred Bones, with all the lovely cover art aesthetic that you’d expect.

Psychic TV
Pagan Day

Sacred Bones present a pair of Psychic TV reissues. Pagan Day originally came out in 1984, presenting raw versions of songs fleshed out elsewhere. Unlike the ornate full band recordings, these are four-track demos and sketches, recorded by Genesis P-Orridge and Alex Fergusson alone. Out of print for three decades, here it is reissued!

Skullflower
Kino I: Birthdeath

The Kino series: in which a multitude of early Skullflower releases, long thought lost to the ages, are brought thrillingly back into print. The first release, Birthdeath, allows you to go back to the very start, presenting the first Skullflower EP from 1987 alongside six never-before-released tracks.
  • Genre(s):

Skullflower
Kino III: Xaman

Third part of the Kino series, which brings back into print a whole host of early Skullflower material. This one is Xaman, a long lusted-after piece of the Skullflower puzzle, containing all the crushing blackened hallmarks of their early sound. Remastered, and lushly packaged with new artwork from Bower himself.

Iepi
New WR

Heavy mathy noises from Iepi. New WR starts at 90 mph and does not really let up. The Locust-esque riffage and frantic drumming that boarders on demonic disco at times are tied together in a spazzy fashion. There are some more melodic moments but they are few and far between. This 12" vinyl is out on Aloud Records.

Melvins
A Walk With Love & Death

A Walk With Love & Death is a brand new album by Melvins in trio mode, and its a double! Split into a Death disc and a Love disc, and featuring guest appearances from the likes of The Pixies’ Joey Santiago and Teri Gender Bender, these hefty slabs of Melvins show off different angles of what this amazing band can do. Double CD and double LP editions, each housed in a sturdy box. On Ipecac.

Melvins
Stoner Witch

1994's 'Stoner Witch' was the Melvins second release on major label Atlantic, who dropped the band in 1997 and banned the group from releasing their follow-up 'Prick' under their own name when they took it to Amphetamine Reptile Records due to it being a bit experimental. 'Stoner Witch' remains a firm fan favourite - a Melvins classic from the Mark Deutrom on bass period.

Wren
Auburn Rule

London based four piece Wren ready their debut full length album for Holy Roar records after releasing their EP with them in 2016. Imposing bleak slabs of post-metal inspired and experimental sludge. Definite comparisons to Neurosis, Isis, Pelican, and Cult Of Luna can be made here, hugely detuned and foreboding.

Ex Eye

Hey, cool idea, just throwing it out there -- how about a metal band with Colin Stetson's sax and Greg Fox on drums? Sounds wacky, let's do it. The definitely cacophonous Ex Eye are an instrumental quartet dual wielding its member's signature mix of elegiac and aggressive compositional work, and their debut is exceedingly likely to stomp down on your heart.

Merch
This Betrayal Will Be Our End

Merch is essentially a one man project, that man is Joe Medina. His mission, with the help of a revolving cast of characters, was to mix his childhood love of noisy punk with cello and jazz phrasings. This Betrayal Will Be Our End is the second album following the debut Crash Boom Bash. This Betrayal Will Be Our End is available on vinyl LP.

Kleistwahr
Music for Zeitgeist Fighters

Kleistwahr is Gary Mundy, who fans of ‘extreme’ music will recognise as a crucial component of Broken Flag, Ramleh and the noise / power electronics / industrial scene in general from back in the day. With that in mind, Music For Zeitgeist Fighters is very listenable, shading almost into warm psych-drone territory at times. LP release on Nashazphone.

Arcadea
Arcadea

Pals of metal get together and try a shred. Sounds like the stuff of our teens, but here it's actually the work of veterans Brann Dailor (from riff behemoths Mastodon), Core Adams (outta Zruda) and Raheem Amlani (via Withered and Scarab). A fine team, but don't expect the usual dosages -- this record sees them do some space orienteering as a unit of psychlords. With honest-to-god synths and what I imagine will be many an overblown groove, this record sees the trio high on a nerd out.

Sunn O)))
White1

By Sunn O))) standards, 2003’s ‘White1’ is a highly experimental album. Sure, at its core of this sprawling opus is cut from the same doom-/drone-metal cloth as the band’s other records. However, the album's various collaborators - among them Julian Cope and Rex Ritter - take ‘White1’ into some unusual territory: ‘GATEWOODeD’ abandons metal for Nurse With Wound’s hinterland; ‘The Gates Of Ballard’ features an actual drumbeat, a rarity in Sunn-world; inhuman moans rise up from the tar-pit of ‘A Shaving Of The Horn That Speared You’. The new master put on 'White1' by Matt Colton bolsters the mix on this already monolithic record.

Moor Mother
Moor x Jewelry: Crime Waves

Two of Philadelphia’s finest producers, Moor Mother and Mental Jewelry, team up for a collaborative EP. The resultant Moor x Jewelery: Crime Waves is dense and heavy with samples, cracked-up beats and all sorts of other special sounds, bound together by powerful lyrics dealing with racist violence and systems. EP on Don Giovanni.

Barrabus
Barrabus

Punk rock! Sludgecore! Metal! Angst-filled, furious, snotty and loud -- it's Paul Catten (Murder One, Medulla Nocte) and his new band Barrabus, with their debut album Barrabus. Expect plenty of riffing, harshly angular guitar action. Front man Catten adds his singular vocal insanity to the project. Exciting stuff, I'm sure you'll agree. CD on Undergroove.

Paradise Lost
Gothic

Peaceville are revisiting some of their most iconic records giving them limited edition picture disc releases. Here we have the second album by Paradise Lost from Halifax, England. Alongside My Dying Bride and Anathema they pushed the death/doom subgenres. Gothic is argued to be them at the top of their game and marked the birth of gothic doom.

Laibach
Also Sprach Zarathustra

New business from avant-industrial propagandist Slovenian legends Laibach, originally composed for a theatrical production of Nietzsche’s Also Sprach Zarathustra. That’s right folks, Laibach do Nietzsche: how could that not be a storming set of music? Twelve juicy tracks, released on Mute.

Jorge Elbrecht
Coral Cross - 001

Following his collaborative work with Ariel Pink and Caroline Polachek (Chairlift) this record sees Elbrecht move into new stylistic territories, from the tearing Bay area thrash metal intro A side to the lo fi sounding, depressive and rhythmically broken B side.

Constellation Botsu
Constellation Botsu

‘Constellation Botsu’ is a sonic bombardment of ‘Botsu’ which are a sort of recorded music ‘track’ if you will, of terrifying, unhinged electronic experiments of which there are currently several hundred in existence. The Botsu considered most suitable for human consumption have been chosen for this record, each one is a miniature hurricane of abrasive, overdriven assault.
