ISIS

  • Vinyl LP (HH666224LP)

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.

ISIS
Mosquito Control

ISIS, the seminal post-metal band who managed to smartly break up before ‘the other Isis’ came along, here re-present their very first EP, from 1998! Mosquito Control shows that the fantastic focus and inventiveness of ISIS was present right from the off, and is a must for any fans of the band. Vinyl reissue with new Aaron Turner artwork, from Hydra Head.

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.
  • CD (HH666228)

Old Man Gloom
NO

Heavy + Heavy = Heavy appears to be the formula behind this ‘supergroup’: members of Converge, ISIS, Mamiffer (and so on) have gotten together to produce another record of blasted fury music. NO was first released in 2012, but Old Man Gloom have seen fit to reissue it on Hydra Head. Double LP.

Endon
Through The Mirror

Japanese moise mongering experimentalists Endon are on a constant mission to be the most extreme act out of Tokyo, and they manage it with mixing the blistering speed and unexpected grandeur of Liturgy, the raw crusty hardcore of Oathbreaker with guttural growls and screeches that’d make Mike Patton wince. Recorded by Converge’s Kurt Ballou. Intense stuff.

Isis
Oceanic: Remixes / Reinterpertations

One of post-metals famed cornerstones, 'Oceanic' is arguably Isis' crowning jewel, a record that channeled the emotive bleat of post-hardcore, beautified heavy metal and influenced a league of heavier third gen post-rock bands,from This Will Destroy You to Russian Circles. It probably deserves this remix set, with each of these tracks commissioned back in 2005, involving electronic minimalists and maximalists alike, such as Fennesz, Thomas Koner, Venetian Snares, Tim Hecker and a lot more. Big names for a big reinterpretation of a big record.

Converge
Caring And Killing: The Early Years 1991-1994

This collection of kindergarten Converge tracks captures the band in an enjoyably ramshackle state, before the tightening of the pummel-lords ship. Caring And Killing: The Early Years 1991-1994 collects sixteen tracks culled from EPs, comp appearances and the Halo in a Haystack album. On double LP from Hydrahead.

Lustmord
Dark Matter

Dark Matter is an album of the darkest dark ambient from dark ambient expert Lustmord. In fact, the album was actually constructed using audio data derived from deep space: blackest ever black indeed. Lustmord has done a great job of summoning the infinitely isolated feel of dark energy in the far cosmos, so give Dark Matter a spin! Out on Touch.

Circle
Miljard

Finnish experimenters Circle have dabbled in every possible form of heavy and avant-garde music. On Miljard they explore ambient and kosmische textures formed from improvisation and dense keyboard playing. But do not fear, the krautrock structures and dedication to free-form playing are still present. This is drone music for metalheads. Available on very limited triple vinyl LP.

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 dirtier version of Naked City. Produced by Atsuo from Boris.

Old Man Gloom
Meditations In B

Old Man Gloom's aka Aaron Turner (ISIS) and Santos Montano (Zozobra) are a post-metal, post-math, post-hardcore, post-rock riff generator. Originally released in 1999, their debut ‘Meditations In B’ is a dark record combining the elements of doom and metal to create an underlying presence that is disturbingly haunting.

Cave In
Creative Eclipses

Originally released on Hydra Head records in 1999, ‘Creative Eclipses’ is a five track EP from nineties, Boston based alternative rock band Cave In (featuring future members of Old Man Gloom, Mutoid Man, Clouds and Zozobra). The EP marks the bands’ departure from their heavier roots, moving towards their experimentation with alternative genres and sounds to evolve into the unpredictable, distinctive sound they are now acclaimed for.

Boris with Merzbow
Sun Baked Snow Cave

Here's what happened when unpredictable doom/pop trio Boris met tireless noise bastard Merzbow for the second time in 2005 (following 2002's 'Megatone' collab), finally on vinyl. It's a more understated piece than you might expect from such a noisy collective, starting gently before enveloping the listener in overwhelming waves of howling feedback and digital abuse. Only 1,200 pressed!

Botch
Unifying Themes Redux

Seattle's Botch are an extremely influential metallic hardcore band who were mainly active during the turn of the millennium. They only released two records -- 'American Nervoso' and the metalcore classic 'We Are The Romans', both for Hydra Head -- but this reissue compiles old 7" tracks and rare tracks. 'Unifying Themes Redux' will satisfy Botch cravings for those still torn up about their all too short time making chaotic punk rock.

Head For The Shallow

Reissue of the Seattle duo’s debut, originally on Hydra Head in 2004. The pair hit on a simple but immediately agreeable formula - bombastically heavy and fiercely rockin’ songs brought to life by the powerful but nuanced drumming of Coady Willis and Jared Warren’s fuzzed-up bass and full-throated but tuneful vocals. It’s easy to see why Melvins took them on wholesale for a while. Viscerally satisfying stuff. Limited LP.
