Nails
Unsilent Death

The debut album from Californian hardcore heavy hitters Nails took the extreme metal world by storm when Southern Lord released it back in 2010. A disgustingly intense blend of power-violence pace and blistering grindcore grooves - and further flecked with elements of death metal, crust-punk and metalcore - 'Unsilent Death' has become a classic amongst beardy metalheads and elbow-swangin' hardcore kids alike. This record and its follow-up 'Abandon All Life' got me into grindcore. An essential release.

Sunn O)))
Pyroclasts

We will look back at 2019 as the year in which Sunn O))) released as many album as they played chords. 'Pyroclasts' follows 'Life Metal' and is pitched as the earlier record's "shadow album". Presumably this means it will not stop until it has destroyed that which casts it. A bit like Dark Link in Zelda. Heavy and slow, you know the drill.

Sleep
The Clarity

New music from stoner-metal overlords Sleep! The Clarity was recorded in 2009, a decade after previous release Dopesmoker and seven years before now. Let no-one accuse Sleep of being in a hurry. The Clarity is a thick and chewy slab of sludge, presented on a single side of vinyl, with the other being artfully etched. 12” on Southern Lord.

Sunn O)))
Kannon

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

Anna von Hausswolff
All Thoughts Fly

Inspired by a 16th century ornate garden called the Sacro Bosco that lies near the castle of Orsini in central Italy, All Thoughts Fly is the latest record from Anna von Hausswolff. It consists solely of an organ, specifically a Gothenburg replica of the Arp Schnitger organ in Germany and the largest of its kind in the world, and used as a platform for epic flights of fancy.

Sunn O)))
White2

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

Entry
Detriment

Entry are a hardcore punk band from Los Angeles. Detriment is their debut album. Their attack is spearheaded by vocalist Sara G and guitarist Clayton Stevens who also play together in post hardcore band Touché Amoré. The four piece is completed by Sean Sakamoto on bass and Chris Dwyer on drums. They take their inspiration from classic punk bands such as Discharge, Minor Threat, The Cramps and The Exploited.

Caspar Brötzmann Massaker
Home

Caspar Brötzmann Massaker make a huge sound building a massive wall of riffs before knocking it down with a squall of feedback. Home is the power trio’s fifth album and was originally released in 1995. The album includes new versions of tracks from the band’s first two albums, 1987’s The Tribe and 1989’s Black Axis.

Caspar Brötzmann Massaker
Koksofen

Caspar Brotzmann Massaker’s fourth album, originally released in 1993, was Koksofen. It endures as a real fans favourite - perhaps because all the hallmarks of the band’s sound were there - the massively loud highs and the destructive rumbling lows. It was recorded at legendary producer, Conny Plank’s studio in Berlin and was produced by his pals Ingo Krauss and Bruno Gephard.

Caspar Brötzmann Massaker
Der Abend Der Schwarzen Folklore

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

Wolfbrigade
The Enemy: Reality

Wolfbrigade are a hardcore punk / death metal band from Skaraborg in Sweden. The Enemy: Reality is their tenth album. They take their influences / inspiration / energy from ‘80s metal and the pummling brutality of hardcore punk to create their short, fast bursts of combustible material. It makes your heart pump faster, this stuff.

BIG | BRAVE
A Gaze Among Them

Returning to Greg Anderson’s Southern Lord for a third full length, Canadian experimental rock three piece BIG | BRAVE decided that, at a fork in the road, the best approach for them would be to go back to the blueprints of their conception and to focus on minimalism, tension, space and voice. A Gaze Among Them is the result of the band having not just grown but matured. Features guest appearance from Thierry Amar of Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Pelican
Nighttime Stories

Pelican returns! Nighttime Stories is their first full release in six years, appearing on the reliably strong Southern Lord (aka the Sunn O))) label). These nine instrumentals are of course heavy and dark, but they are also as vividly detailed as you could want, with lots of intricacies beneath the dense chugs.

Friendship
Undercurrent

I’m not sure Friendship is the best name for this bunch of Japanese power violence doom metalers given that their previous album was called Hatred. The furrow they plough is a very deep, heavy and dark one albeit with technical mastery and precision. Undercurrent is their new album which is said to be brighter in tone than the aforementioned Hatred, but probably not much. On Southern Lord.

Pelican
Forever Becoming (2019 Remix)

Beefed-up version of Pelican’s 2013 LP Forever Becoming here. Southern Lord have given producer Chris Common another crack at mixing the record, and the result adds more definition and low-end to the band’s expansive post-metal instrumentals. Also included on the 2019 Remix of Forever Becoming is ‘Bardo’, a track that was previously only available on Pelican’s Japanese releases.

Sunn O)))
Life Metal

Here they come again, churning away. This time slo-mo metallers Sunn O))) have recorded with grumpy recording engineer Steve Albini who, when answering the phone from the big hairy guys said "Sure, this will be fun". And fun it was as the band drafted in violin ace Hildur Guðnadóttir (Mum, Pan Sonic) to add textures and all sorts to the ever expanding brew. Also Anthony Pateras guests on pipe organ.      

Caspar Brötzmann Massaker
Black Axis

Originally released in 1989, Black Axis was the second album by Caspar Brötzmann Massaker. The power trio were dominated by Brötzmann’s gigantic guitar sound and could go from thumping rock to cacophonous racket in the space of one song. Sounds like fun to me. LP and CD on Southern Lord.

Caspar Brötzmann Massaker
The Tribe

Caspar Brötzmann Massaker announced themselves back in ‘87 with The Tribe.The German power trio played heavy rock with industrial delivery and in guitarist and frontman Caspar Brötzmann they had Jimi Hendrix, Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo rolled into one. LP and CD on Southern Lord.

The Primals
All Love Is True Love

The Primals sound exciting. They feature members of Darkest Hour, Dead to Fall and the Explosion and are said to be bringing back the visceral thrill of grunge. Their thrilled record label Southern Lord suggest that fans of Wand, Ty Segall, Nirvana, and Pixies may want to take especially keen interest.  

Baptists
Bloodmines

Crusty hardcore kids Baptists are back with a record of chaotic punk rock that tries to throw in as many riffs and rasped vocals as possible. 'Bloodmines', their second record, does a good job of using melody to clear out the clutter, continuing to show off the band's subtle post-hardcore and noise rock influences. 

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.  

Vitamin X
Age Of Paranoia

So many bands, trends and scenes have come and gone since Vitamin X first surfaced in the late-90s, but somehow the Amsterdam punx have managed to outlast them all. This is probably something to do with an ever-burning fire in their bellies - Age Of Paranoia’s lead single ‘Modern Man’ contains the spunk of a band half their age - and their ability to incorporate elements of hardcore punk, thrash metal, grindcore and more into their music without ever sounding laboured. Out via Southern Lord (Nails, Power Trip).

Scream
NMC17

Scream’s seminal 1988 LP No More Censorship gets the reissue treatment courtesy of Southern Lord (Earth, Goatsnake). The group’s first album to feature Dave Grohl - on drums, fortunately - NMC17 is as vital a snapshot into the 1980s DC hardcore scene as Bad Brains’s I Against I or Fugazi’s 13 Songs. This new version saw the original mixes run through the desk at Grohl’s studio and comes with some nice photos of the band in their pomp.

Eagle Twin
The Thundering Heard (Songs Of Hoof And Horn)

Doom-laden blues duo Eagle Twin are back with their long-awaited third album, out on 30 March on Southern Lord. This is a commanding record, weaving together rumbling vocals—courtesy of Gentry Densley—sky-scraping guitar riffs and powerfully dynamic beats, with nods to classic folklore and searing storytelling.

Sunn O)))
Black One

Here we have a reissue of one of the classic Sunn O))) albums, on which the cowled duo set out to go as dark as they possibly could. To this effect, Black One features guest appearances from Oren Ambarchi, John Weise, Wrest and Malefic: the latter was locked in a coffin and his claustrophobic screams recorded. Heavy. Gatefold re-press on Southern Lord.

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.

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. 

BIG | BRAVE
Au De La

BIG / BRAVE are a trio of rock heaviness, generating a sound that veers between post-rock, blasted grunge, and noise-rock. Au De La is their second full length, and features the highly capable talents of Efrim Menuck on production duties. Released as a no-doubt lusciously packaged CD or LP by Southern Lord.

Loincloth
Psalm Of The Morbid Whore

Virginia/North Carolina experimental instrumental metal three piece Loincloth are made up of ex-members from Thrash/doom legends Confessor and Gauchiste. Ritualistically laying down their axes on this project Psalm Of The Morbid Whore is their bow out and last ever record. It’s filled with the technical start stop doom laden thrash you would come to expect, think Virus meets Morbid Angel.

BIG | BRAVE
Ardor

Montreal based three piece return to Southern Lord for their third album. With three tracks spanning 40 minutes they go the whole hog in post-rock experimentation from huge domineering heaviness to abstract and delicate. This time with guest in the form of members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra, and Jerusalem In My Heart.

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.

Circle
Terminal

You can count on Finland’s Circle to provide the goods, always pulling together the finest and weirdest bits of rock etc. history into their (surprisingly cohesive) whole. Terminal is full of proggy flair, krautrock space-power, psychedelic flavour, heavy metal heft and much else besides, making for a dense and wonderful sound. Out on Southern Lord.

Darkest Hour
Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora

Not their ninth, but their tenth full length and Washington D.C.’s Darkest Hour are just as angry and just a passionate. Working with Converge’s Kurt Ballou to full effect and releasing through Greg Anderson’s Southern Lord they are sounding bigger and heavier than ever before, and a total must for fans of metal, thrash, and chugging melodic hardcore alike.

Lifesick
6.0.1.

Lifesick is a new band made up of former members of Spinkick. That band wasn’t exactly lightweight (they tended to sound like they were charging towards you in order to kick your head in), but Lifesick is an even more blackened and ferocious hardcore prospect. 6.0.1. is released by Southern Lord.

Lies
Plague

Brutalist bludgeoning hardcore from a group that features members of The Hope Conspiracy and Skin Like Iron. No time is wasted here: Lies pummel their way through Plague’s allotted 8 tracks so fast that the whole album fits onto one side of vinyl: the B-side is taken up with an etching. On Southern Lord.

Okkultokrati
Raspberry Dawn

Hard to pin this one down apart from to note that it is well heavy… Okkultokrati have hard rock at their core, but with plenty of influence from punk, post-punk, metal and black metal. New album Raspberry Dawn even finds them adding a synth player into the mix, for even wider possibilities! Dark forest music on Southern Lord.

Hissing
Hissing

With a self released demo and self titled EP under their belt, Southern Lord have snapped Hissing up for a follow up EP. 2 tracks of disturbing sludge encrusted death metal, capturing elements of Swams, Winter and Incantation. And with the guitarist (Joe O’Malley) being the younger brother of Sunn o)))’s Stephen O’Malley you can probably imagine it’s going to be punishing.

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.

Black Breath
Slaves Beyond Death

Black Breath have a furious flail of death metal to show to you. Slaves Beyond Death (could they BE any more metal?) is their third record, and the band are proud to be even more unpleasant-sounding than ever on this one. ‘Putrid’, ‘rotting’, and ‘bile’ according to the press release. CD or double LP on Southern Lord.

Goatsnake
Black Age Blues

Available as Gatefold 2LP (LP contains two exclusive tracks) or CD on Southern Lord. Ooooof! First album in fifteen years. With original members Greg Anderson (Sunn O)))), Pete Stahl (Scream), and Greg Rogers (The Obsessed) joined by new bassist Scott Renner (Sonic Medusa) they’re back proving they’re still the doom/sludge/stoner overlords they’ve always been. Here be riffs.

Earth
Primitive and Deadly

Earth, worshipers of all things slow and the band responsible for Sunn O))), are releasing their new record - it's called, with amazing precision, 'Primitive and Deadly'. It's their fifth release for Southern Lord, and continues their ascent into focusing on building subtle arrangements around the focal point of Dylan Carlson's guitar work. On 'Primitive and Deadly' Earth welcome some guests into their doomy mists, the record featuring vocals from Screaming Trees' fellow Mark Lanegan as well as Rabi Shaheen Qazi. There's also bass work courtesy of Sunn O))) collaborator Bill Herzog.   Tracks: Torn By The Fox of the Crescent Moon There Is A Serpent Coming From The Zodiacal Light Even Hell Has Its Heroes Rooks Across The Gate Torn By The Fox Of The Crescent Moon There Is a Serpent Coming From The Zodiacal Light Even Hell Has Its Heroes Rooks Across The Gate Badgers Bane

Martyrdod
Elddop

Sweden’s d-beat crust gods, MARTYRDÖD, return with their second full-length for Southern Lord. Once again they entered the infamous Studio Fredman (At The Gates, Amon Amarth, Opeth) to record their new full-length, entitled Elddop, the crushing follow-up to 2012’s Paranoia LP. It's extreme and not very nice, but it's an evil kind of swell.

Offenders
Endless Struggle/ We Must Rebel/ I Hate Myself/ Bad Times

Classic Texan hardcore reissued by Southern Lord. Endless Struggle / We Must Rebel / I Hate Myself / Bad Times compiles two albums and a single. Therefore you can get yourself most of Offenders discography on two sides of vinyl. Team Lord have polished up the sound a bit, so this hardcore has an even harder core than before.

A Storm Of Light
Nations To Flames

Cruel sonic doomers A Storm of Light continue to drop their music from great heights onto the unsuspecting mass of people underfoot. Nations To Flames has a couple of most metal features on it, with Neurosis' Josh Graha and Kim Thayil from Soundgarden. A not nice time was had by all.

Pelican
Forever Becoming

Forever Becoming was the first full length album from post-rock/metal sludgers Pelican following a self imposed hiatus in 2009. It sees the Chicago area instrumentalists reborn and fully focussed. Like their earlier work its a window rattling churn that takes the possibilities of guitar music to its limits. For fans of Mono, Explosions in the Sky et al. 

Baptists
Bushcraft

Baptists drop their debut LP via Southern Lord. Bushcraft makes good on the promise shown by the Vancouver group on their self-titled debut EP. Produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, the tracks here tear out of the speakers with a ferocity similar to Drive Like Jehu’s best work. Bushcraft is punishing, invigorating stuff.

Wolves in the Throne Room
Celestial Lineage

A modern classic of American dark-nature black metal: it’s Wolves In The Throne Room’s 2011 album Celestial Lineage! This is a particularly epic one, with Jessika Kenney contributing beautiful tender vocals to several sparse quasi-ambient passages that break up the brothers Weaver’s ecstatic dark ritualism. Southern Lord reissue.

Sunn O)))
3: Flight Of The Behemoth

Released in 2002 as the group's third album, 'Flight of the Behemoths' saw experimental drone-metal iconoclasts Sunn O))) grow into their sound still further. Two tracks were mixed with Japanese legend Merzbow, while the album's closing track was a thrillingly deconstructed cover of Metallica's 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' and was the first Sunn O))) track to feature a drum machine.

Sleep
Dopesmoker

Got to keep the lads in smoking paraphernalia. This must get re-issued at least once a year (around the same number of times the members of Sleep actually get out of bed in fact). This is a stone cold stoner rock classic though. It invented the genre pretty much... full of sludging riffs, grumbling bass, cannabis rhythms.
