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...view item »

Arabrot
The Gospel

New record from heavy adventurers Arabrot. The Gospel follows Kjetil Nernes’ recovery from throat cancer, so it is understandably thoughtful about mortality. Not that the band hold back here: grinding basslines and pounding industrial rhythms are very much present, and The Gospel remains ...view item »

Neurosis
Fires Within Fires

New Neurosis?! It's no wonder the press release is in all caps. The sludge titans have been going thirty years, if you can believe it, and they commemorate being older than me by releasing a brand new album called Fires Within Fires. That kinda grittily gorgeous album art sums up the band, really -- their post...view item »

Myrkur
Mausoleum

Danish artist Myrkur’s strangely refreshing take on black metal melds something between Chelsea Wolfe and Wolves In The Throne Room. Mausoleum is a live recording of acoustic, choral and stripped down versions of songs from her debut album, M. Backed by Norweigian Girls&r...view item »

Sewn Leather
Freak On Hashish / Longboarding Is A Crime

Are you angry? Had enough of your job, your life, your broken down car and your girlfriend/boyfriend not putting out and not doing the dishes? Haven’t we all. Are you looking for a theme tune to aid you in your rampage as you sort out your life while spewing angry, long syllabulled rants at passers-by a la Mike Leigh’s Naked? This is...view item »

Witchthroat Serpent
Sang-Dragon

Witchthroat Serpent are a stoner-doom band (can you believe it?!) with thick wedges of occult practice in their aesthetic and hazy slabs of blackened guitar in their sound. Sang-Dragon wears its old-school heavy metal heritage proudly on its denim-patched sleeve: Witchthroat get it just right. Out on Sv...view item »

Pig Destroyer
Terrifyer

Terrifyer is the third album of Pig Destroyer, initially released in 2004. This violent slice of grindcore hasn’t been available on vinyl for over a decade, and this reissue even adds 4 bonus tracks never before pressed to wax. This release is on ‘Bone White’ coloured vinyl, in a limited edition, on th...view item »

Pelican
City Of Echoes

'Down to earth' is a good way to describe their performance on the album overall. Their previous effort, The Fire In Our Throats, was a little pretentious, and they tried to get away with putting too little music in too much time. On City Of Echoes, Pelican knew exactly what they wanted to do, and they recorded as an incredibly tight unit once m...view item »

The Dillinger Escape Plan
Dissociation

The fact The Dillinger Escape Plan announced that they will be splitting up after the release of Dissociation and that the two are not connected feeds my need for irony for the day. After five albums, the record itself is as strong and fear mongering as they have ever been. Relentless. Relentless. Relentless. Relentless...view item »

Salem's Pot
Watch Me Kill You

Watch Me Kill You is an LP for which demand far outstripped supply: it’s been impossible to get hold of for quite some time. Fortunately, the Riding Easy label has now relented, opening up access to this astonishingly heavy material once more. 2 side-long jams, wreathed in weed smoke and amp vibrations. Orange and purple splatter ...view item »

Costes
Pas Encore Mort

Wild, ridiculous, dangerous, bold artist Costes is one of a kind, performing whatever demented notions crawl into his head. He’s recorded and released over 70 albums, and this is another one. Pas Encore Mort is a fairly song-based record, with the French mutterings of Costes playing out over alter...view item »

Cherrystones: Critical Mass / Splinters From The Worldwide New-Wave, Post-Punk and Industrial Underground 1978 – 1984

Get away from here with your overly Anglocentric narratives of post-punk! As Cherrystones: Critical Mass / Splinters From The Worldwide New-Wave, Post-Punk and Industrial Underground 1978-1984 demonstrates, incredible stuff was being made all over the place, pushing the envelope ever further. The first track, from Rheingold...view item »

Clay Rendering
We Are Aware

Next up on Sir Prurient's Hospital Productions label is one from duo Clay Rendering, aka Wolf Eyes alum Mike Connelly alongside artist Tara Connelly. Their music sounds like extreme music being reduced into a dreamt-up ambience, blurred together but never cut of its melodies or extr...view item »

Wolf Eyes
I Am A Problem: Mind In Pieces

Weird, a Wolf Eyes album on Jack White’s Third Man Records… I Am A Problem: Mind In Pieces is the first ‘proper’ Wolf Eyes album to showcase their late-period Trip Metal (sorry John Olson, I mean TR1p Met@L!!1!) style, and while it is pretty dam...view item »

Godflesh
Songs Of Love and Hate

From 1996, an album from pioneers of industrial music Godflesh for the first time on vinyl with Songs of Love and Hate.  Genre defining at the time, now you can experience the drums of Bryan Mantia and Napalm Death guitarist Justin Broadrick’s atmospheric and minimalistic industrial sound in impe...view item »

Isis
Temporal

Even after splitting up, Isis still impresses. “Temporal” is a posthumous release by one of the most iconic atmospheric sludge bands of all time. This is a band that defined the post-metal offshoot, introduced many fans to a more meditative sort of weight in music, influenced countless bands, and accomplished just as much as the grou...view item »

Faith No More
We Care A Lot: Deluxe Band Edition

This release looks all the way back to 1985 and the debut of original vocalist Chuck Mosley’s Faith No More. We Care A Lot is roughly produced (the band had no money) but full of flavour and 80’s flair. It has been out of print absolutely years, so here comes a Deluxe Band Edition remix with 9 extra...view item »

MoRkObOt
GoRgO

MoRkObOt recorded their fifth full-length 'GoRgO' in Padova. Lin, Lan and Lon (on bass, bass and drums respectively; no Len this time) got it all down live to tape, mixed and mastered within two weeks! These are some fast-working Italian boys. We at NR are impressed; particularly seeing as the record is choc full of TiG...view item »

Wreck and Reference
Indifferent Rivers Romance End

Wreck & Reference have been described as an experimental metal duo: so much so that large stretches of their music is unrecognisable as metal at all. Until the throat-shredding howling starts anyway. Indifferent Rivers Romance End is heavy with electronics and strings, sa...view item »

All Your Sisters
Uncomfortable Skin

All Your Sisters are proudly in love with a certain part of the 1980’s when industrially-vibed post-punk was all the rage. Their second album Uncomfortable Skin nails that particular sound with stern drum machines, obscured vocals and Cureish guitars. Lots of shadowy swagger, released by the delib...view item »

Cut Hands
Afro Noise I

Now this is something I've been looking forward to for a very long time. This is of course William Bennett of Whitehouse fame working with his collection of traditional African instruments (Djembes, Doundouns, Ksin...view item »

KHUNNT
Failures

Khünnt is a super-heavy Newcastle supergroup, including members of Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs and Blown Out, plus the wonderful Richard Dawson! No twisted folk-song here though: Failures is a big, unrelenting slab of blasted, blackened stoner-psych. One 40 ...view item »

Helm & Decimus
We Will Meet At Other Human Parties

Helm (of Luke Younger and Alter Records) & Decimus (Put Murano, NNCK, Kellipah) sees the two come together for a collaborative album, interestingly called; We Will Meet At Other Human Parties. The cover artwork for this one is unnerving enough but the looping, grinding and gurgling sounds wi...view item »

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 b...view item »

Pentagram
First Daze Here Too

Pentagram are a necessary part of the heavy metal puzzle, kicking into action in the early 70’s with chugging guitar riffs, flaring guitar solos and howling vocals. A whole genre is contained in this sound. First Daze Here Too is a rare collection of obscure recordings from the band’s earliest formative days...view item »

Wolves in the Throne Room
Diadem of 12 Stars

The band that launched hipster black metal get a reissue of their 2006 classic Diadem of 12 Stars, a record that treated the genre as ambient rumination in what is usually a place for sonic severity. Wolves In The Throne Room are one of black metal's biggest contemporary names and this record is perhaps i...view item »

Necro Deathmort
The Capsule

Hold up, Necro Deathmort? Yeah, that’s three different words for death… Though they may not sound how you imagine, on this record at least. Following in a darker vein to band mates Teeth of the Sea, but mixing rock (or in these guys’ case extreme metal) with electronic experiments brings a hug...view item »

Melvins
Basses Loaded

This Melvins album is named Basses Loaded because it is packed to the gills with notable bass players, up to a total of 6! As well as the regulars, we have Steve McDonald of Red Kross and OFF!, Jeff Pinkus of Butthole Surfers, and ...view item »

Black Sun Productions
Toilet Chant

Black Sun Productions are Pierce and Massimo, who worked with Coil for their live stage performances back in the day. Strange, doomy ambience is the name of the game on this album, w...view item »

Konstruktivists
A Dissembly

Konstruktivists have been releasing pretty much every year (with the odd gap here and there) since 1982. With a recent album out, Dark Entries look back at its beginnings; mixing with Throbbing Gristle and all of the Industrial records gang. This is a must for anyone into the initial industrial releases - gritty...view item »

Black Sun Productions
Dies Juvenalis

Massimo & Pierce made up Black Sun Productions. Most known for their live work with Coil, as well as working with Lydia Lunch and H.R. Giger. Heavily effected vocals, beautiful xylophone and dramatic percussion create something strangely bea...view item »

Big Business
Command Your Weather

Good old-fashioned shouty guitar rock from LA's Big Business, aka Coady Willis and Jared Warren (The Melvins). Apparently it has a concept, something to do with nature and its power over mankind, but aside from that it's a good record to destroy your brain cells to on the dance floor. Available on vinyl or CD. Rock on. Yeah....view item »

Die Krupps
Stahlwerkrequiem

Stahlwerkrequium is a resurrection of the spirit of the 1981 Die Krupps album Stahlwerksinfonie, a thick grind of industrial rock (‘Stahlwerk’ translates to ‘Steelworks’). But better yet, this time the band has 2 key members of Faust on-board, guaranteeing a beautifully ...view item »

Netherlands
Audubon

Timo Ellis, famous for his work with Cibo Matto, founded Netherlands (not the country) to satisfy some of his grungier needs. And that’s exactly what the band does on their new album. Their guitars, drained in fuzz, play heavy and catchy riffs, making Audubon an album th...view item »

Consumer Electronics
Dollhouse Songs

Tech punk aggressors Consumer Electronics return with another noisey affair with the delicately titled Dollhouse Songs. Produced by the mighty Russell Haswell, this dirge of austerity angst jumps right down your earhole and stays there. Out on vinyl LP with lyric sleeve from Harbinger Sound. Limited to 1000 copies....view item »

One Unique Signal
Hoopsnake

On Hoopsnake, One Unique Signal prove that they are the heaviest and most repetitive noise-rock band in existence. Every song on the album is built from a single crushingly loud and minimal riff that is explored, destroyed and rebuilt by a range of collaborators and gear. Somehow they turn a single riff into a work of art....view item »

Metallica
Kill 'Em All

This reissued record from Metallica should need no introduction if you are in any way interested in thrash metal. 1983’s Kill ‘Em All is the very first album ever recorded by these kings of the riffs, and it still stands proud as a strong statement of intent. Now it is available again on vinyl, fully remaste...view item »

Converge
You Fail Me

Converge reissue a couple of old favourites via the Deathwish Inc. label. Originally released in 2004, You Fail Me is one of the best examples of the legendary band’s cutting metalcore brutality, pushing through twelve tracks in only thirty-five minutes. This vinyl version also includes a bonus track exclusive to ...view item »

Khost [Deconstructed and Reconstructed by] Godflesh
Needles Into The Ground

Khost’s album Corrosive Shroud was pretty brutal to begin with, it must be said, but that didn’t stop them from letting Justin K Broadrick of Godflesh have a go at it, leaving several tracks even more cranked-up and angry than before. Needles Into The Ground [Deconstruct...view item »

Zig Zags
Running Out Of Red

Zig Zags are a band still in love with old-school thrash metal, but instead of filtering it into some trendier new genre, they just follow their hearts and start headbanging. Running Out Of Red is classically gnarly and full of thick riffs: it literally rocks. Released on John Dwyer’s Castle Face ...view item »

Odonis Odonis
Post Plague

Odonis Odonis smashed the radar with 2011s Hollandaze which was a bizarre blend of lo-fi shoegaze with punk aggression. Post Plague shows similar genrte bending and smashing, with Nine Inch Nails and Laibach industrial groove and dark brute force, with the impassioned vocal scr...view item »

The Body & Full Of Hell
One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache

If you know either or both of Full of Hell and The Body, you’ll realise that this first-time collaboration cannot fail to be a scouring blast of sonic brutality.

Music From The Motion Picture: The Ballad Of Genesis & Lady Jaye

This is the soundtrack of the remarkable story of the pandrogyne project between Genesis P. Orridge and his/her partner Lady Jaye in which by way of thousands of pounds worth of plastic surgery Genesis more resembled his/her wife. A tale where the lyrics of the Beautiful South song 'We Are Each Other' came ...view item »

Horse Latitudes
Primal Gnosis

Horse Latitudes are a band who do darkness like only those Finns can, casting a pitch black veil over the listener. Even when they leave a little space in the mix, the effect remains: it sometimes sounds like vocalist Harri is howling at you from the other side of a c...view item »

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare
Mirrors For Psychic Warfare

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare are made up of Scott Kelly of Neurosis and Sanford Parker of Buried At Sea. They have a crushingly heavy outlet together in Corrections House, but this new duo works more of a creeping dread vibe: sick fever rather th...view item »

Birushanah
Makyo

Birushanah present their fourth album, Makyo. This doomy Japanese post-hardcore outfit are a heavy proposition, with their guitars and drums fiercely linked in pulverising riff-rhythm structures.

The Engineering Of Consent

3 producers provide 3 different “experimental takes on ‘dead sounds’” such as drum & bass (their words not mine). Lots of drones and feedback-sounds land in the mix of these ostensibly dance-themed tracks from Aql Measure, Henry Gillett and Descent. The Engineerin...view item »

Deafheaven

MXLX
^___^

Matt Loveridge’s project MXLX is one of his noisier ones, and this new album is one of his strongest works under the name. ^____^ storms through desolate black metal, howling distortion clouds and delicate guitar parts en route to a transcendent annihilation. 250 12” vinyl copies on FuckPunk...view item »

M Ax Noi Mach
On The Edge

On The Edge is the first full-length record we’ve heard from M Ax Noi Mach in 6 years. Pleasingly, the time away hasn’t resulted in him cleaning up his act: his negative feelings are still as raw as ever, and the soundscapes are mostly stark synth and industrial beats. It’s a menacing listen, the produ...view item »

Jello Biafra with The Melvins
Never Breathe What You Can't See

Half the songs on here sound like Plastic Surgery Disasters-era Dead Kennedys. Which shouldn't be a surprise because the Melvins had offered to be Jello's backing band after the ex-Kennedys sued the crap out of him and reformed with a new singer (playing only the old songs) and right before Jello got his new band together. If you like the DKs or Je...view item »

The Body
No One Deserves Happiness

The album is called No One Deserves Happiness and the band The Body, how do you think it’s going to sound? Predictably, and thankfully, this double vinyl LP and CD on Thrill Jockey is mean, abrasive and inventive experimental metal. There’s plenty of detuned guitars, but the duo also...view item »

Noumeno
Exosomatic Artifacts

Noumeno throws a disorientating array of digital sound at the listener, as interested in exploring texture and socio-philosophical themes as in making you dance via his broken beats. New EP Exosomatic Artefacts also includes a ‘Wall of Crystal’ reworking from Fis and another remix by the exc...view item »

Monumentum
The Killer Is Me

Momentum debut their fearsome stoner and doom metal with the excellently titled The Killer Is Me. Colossal riffs are hidden in distortion and guttural vocals and there’s even a couple of weird atonal solos to keep things psychedelic. For fans of Kyuss and Black Sabbath who...view item »

Reptile Master
In The Light of a Sinking Sun

Reptile Master have been brewing their evil doom sound in the north of Norway for some time now, and are now ready to release their debut album onto the world. In The Light of a Sinking Sun seems to have absorbed the feeling of all-day darkness that engulfs the region in the winter months: bleak, heavy doom-metal. On Bl...view item »

Graves At Sea
The Curse That Is

Take industrial drones, Black Sabbath-inspired riffing and super sludgy production and you get The Curse That Is, the debut from Graves At Sea. This collection of doomy sludge has taken almost fifteen years to emerge, but the band’s dense and distorted sound has always sounded modern. It's...view item »

Tombs
All Empires Fall

Relapse records have always been at the cutting edge of extreme metal and rock, and the new album from Tombs continues this tradition.

Alaric
End of Mirrors

End of Mirrors is a dark and melancholy collection of post-punk from this Oakland band.

Henge
Henge

Self-titled debut album from UK stoner doom activists Henge. All the elements are firmly in place, from the lumbering, endlessly propulsive rhythm section to the pummelling down-tuned riffs of the guitars. And lets not forget the howling vocals, or the sense that each member of the band have spent the last week in a narcotic haz...view item »

Venus Sleeps
Dead Sun Worship

Dead Sun Worship is yr traditional heavy sack of doom, the first record from Dublin’s Venus Sleeps. A touch of Ozzy Osbourne enters into the vocals, lending the whole affair a classic feel. The name of the record label, Heavy Earth Records, sets up a nice triumvirate of planets and stars too. 300 ...view item »

Leif Elggren
Das Baank

Your favourite experimental dabblers Rekem would like you to meet a certain Leif Elggren, whose pioneering noise hits somewhere between confrontational and delusional: is this music coming at you or orbiting around you? The harsh music here serves as Elggren's own critiques of "violence and repression", provoking with ...view item »

Coffins / ILSA
Split EP

This split brings together doom-merchants from different continents: the USA’s ILSA and Japan’s Coffins. Both of them keep things firmly down-tuned and bleak throughout, desolate howls and wide riffs conjuring significant black clouds. This is a limited edition 12” EP, with the B-side taken up ...view item »

Magrudergrind
II

II is a brand new album from Magrudergrind, released after 6 years away.

Beastmaker
Lusus Naturae

Beastmaker are a new band who are deeply in love with the heavy British hard rock of years gone by: plenty of Black Sabbath is audible here, not to mention the pagany-horror aesthetic the band cloak their releases in. Lusus Naturae is available on CD or 180g red vinyl editions: from the Rise Above label...view item »

Self Defense Family
Superior

Self Defense Family’s new EP is a dark one. Over 4 tracks, Superior grinds out heavy atmospheres using a slow post-hardcore sound-pallette, apparently dealing with a certain region of Michigan. Patrick Kindlon’s bleak, forsaken-sounding howls set the tone powerfully. 12” EP on nicey ni...view item »

Wolvserpent
Aporia:Kala:Ananta

Brutal doom/drone heaviness on the Relapse label. Wolveserpent have built a reputation for experimental metal that is as loud as it is inventive.

The Sun Will Turn on You

Ominous industrial drone from New York based artist MV Carbon.

Aluk Todolo
Voix

On Voix, Aluk Tolodo have finally made a harsh noise record from their traditional setup of guitar, bass and drums.

Chasms has 4 long tracks, and is released on Relapse....view item »

Endon
Mama

Yeah, this is completely insane…. “Catastrophic noise metal” is pretty much spot on. Japanese group Endon create an almost constant state of confusion, throughout Mama there are parts where you latch onto a riff or theme and it is very quickly snatched away in a wall of shrieks and noises. Think a dir...view item »

So it turns out that Stay Dead, an EP by the band Possessor, is metal! Who’d have thought eh?

Pressed to clear vinyl in a limited edition of 500 copies, this is released by Creepy...view item »

Hey Colossus
In Black And Gold

Hey Colossus and Rocket Recordings seem like such a natural fit, I was surprised to see this was their first release together. Hey Colossus’ furious in-the-red psych-noise-rock has been going down well for years, and In Black And Gold contains plenty of that sound, but it also has a few tracks tha...view item »

Orthodox
Axis

Orthodox return, in duo format. That’s one drum kit, one bass guitar, and some harried vocals. But Axis also features significant contributions from classical instruments: horns and clarinets give a great deal of depth to these songs, sometimes doom-droning it out, sometimes leading a furious charge forwards. On A...view item »
