Peaceville Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Reissue of Deviated Instinct's debut album Rock 'n' Roll Conformity. One of the first wave of bands of the UK's crustcore scene, they played fast and heavy. To give you an idea of their calibre, they regularly toured with the likes of Bolt Thrower, Carcass and Napalm Death. Sick riffs and visceral yelps.
One of the fathers of the second wave of black metal alongside Mayhem, Burzum, Emperor, and Satyricon, Darkthrone’s third album is one of the flagships for the norwegian sound, cold and grim. Special picture disc version of the 1993 album cut sleeve featuring different artwork. Put out on Peaceville.

Good old Peaceville Records come through with a reissue of Autopsy’s chirpy Retribution For The Dead. This 1991 EP was released as a stopgap between the seminal American death metal band’s first and second LPs. That’s not to say Retribution For The Dead is a lightweight record, mind - these are three heavy, heavy tunes. The title track is exclusive to this release.
With Bobby Liebling remaining the most surprisingly still-living and less surprisingly least-dignified metal frontman, here’s a reminder of better daze. The Virginia doom masters were one of the first and most faithful outfits to follow in the hallowed footsteps of Black Sabbath, and their second LP is beyond reproach, with classics such as When the Screams Come and Evil Seed. This 30th anniversary picture disc features the original ‘Mausoleum’ artwork and guarantees morbid mid-paced thrills.
Obviously the first thing that springs to mind is vampires but whether or not this record contains any Transylvanian roots is still - 26 years on - yet to be discussed. A Blaze In The Northern Sky is a re-release of the 1992 album from the Norwegian black metal band and is available on vinyl LP and released on Peaceville (there's a joke about irony somewhere here).
Having drummed on Death’s seminal debut Scream Bloody Gore, Chris Reifert returned from Florida to California and formed Autopsy. While Death would pursue an increasingly progressive path, Reifert and guitarists Danny Coralles and Eric Cutler dug deeper into the gore and found plenty to occupy them. The first rotten fruits of this union were the 1987 and 1988 demos and rehearsals collected here, featuring raw takes on tracks that would feature on their classic 1989 LP Severed Survival.
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.
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.

The ever reliable Autopsy signed to Peaceville in 1988 and have stuck with them ever since for over 8 albums of crushing death metal, and still remain a genre defining act. To mark the 30th anniversary of the band and the Peaceville label, they have reissued their 1991 album Mental Funeral on limited picture disc. Brutal, guttural, timeless.
