ÄÄRIÖ "Alinen" CDr 8€
(Ääriö)
Ääriö joins the still minuscule scene of Finnish instrumental post-metal/-rock bands. Unlike most of the foreign bands within the genre, Ääriö keeps from copying post-rock household names such as Mogwai, GY!BE etc. and draws inspiration from more doom and stoner oriented sounds. Sticking to riffs and groove instead of technicality or over-the-top psychedelia, Ääriö definitely have a promising approach to an otherwise overcrowded genre. Pro-CDr in a beautiful fold-out carton sleeve.

DEMONIC DEATH JUDGE "Kneel" CDr 7€
(Demonic Death Judge)
Amazing material from this fresh Finnish powerhouse featuring members of Total Devastation yet presenting here a more riff-heavy, sludgier and groovier monster. Echoes of Iron Monkey, Eyehategod as well as the groovy death rock of Entombed can be heard here, but Demonic Death Judge aren't ashamed to add elements such as clean vocals, melodic guitar leads and samples into the mix. Definitely ranking as one of the best (if not the best?) Finnish newcomers at the moment. Check them out!

16 "Zoloft Smile" LP 12€
(Bastardized Recordings)
Ten sludge filled tales of urban decay, domestic despair, and misery delivered courtesy of this Los Angeles, CA based troupe. Terminally deviant tirades, fuzz enshrouded riffs, and bleary narco-rhythms conspire to lay waste to your eardrums (and frontal lobe). For fans of anything and everything heavy (and cough syrup). Don't fight it, you need this album!

BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS / KODIAK Split LP 13€
(Denovali Records)
Two German heavy weights present one massive track each on this beautiful black slab of vinyl. Having already made their mark on previous, excellent releases Black Shape of Nexus pummel you with painfully slow doom and finish you off with acrid, harsh drones, giving down-tempo a whole new meaning. Kodiak equal their landmates in heaviness yet have a more slowly brooding approach to their dense, monolithic sound bringing together all elements of slow music. Heavy 180g black vinyl in heavy weight glossy gatefold sleeve. Limited edition of 420 copies.

YEAR OF NO LIGHT / ROSETTA / EAST OF THE WALL Split 2LP 18€
(Denovali Records)
Three of the best bands in underground post-metal converge for an excellent split. While none of them are reinventing the post-metal wheel, they are each doing something new to spice up the old recipes of the genre. East of the Wall pulls no punches with their three part epic "Scumbrella". Year of No Light decided to go "Through Silver in Blood" -era Neurosis and cover us in sludge. Finally Rosetta delivers one of the strangest, but best, cover of The Cure's "Homesick". All in all this triple split is worth the cost of admission; there is something for every fan of the genre to be found here. Two 180g clear blue/clear vinyls in heavy weight gatefold sleeve. This colour is limited to 200 copies.

DEN SAAKALDTE "Øl, Mørke og Depresjon" CD 10€
(Aesthetic Death)
It was a depressive and drunken night when Den Saakaldte was born. Alkolhol made things clear. Den Saakaldte was born back in May of 2006, under the candlelight and light of the fullmoon. The project started as a 'one man band' project, by Sykelig. It's only purpose?...To be the way of expressing the paranoia, depression and alkohol influenced thoughts of the individual. Den Saakaldte as a meaning, stands for every person that is not or doesn't feel a part of the 'normal' society. Sykelig recorded the first two songs in Hellas and after that relocated once and for good to Norway. Sykelig joined forces with Jormungand - keys (DHG), Seidemann - bass (1349, Pantheon I) and Niklas Kvarforth (Shining). The drums back then were performed by the talented musician, S. Winter (ex-Aeternus, ex-Gehenna). Den Saakaldte re-recorded in Oslo and Stravanger, in actual basements, and mixed this material that was entitled "Øl, Mørke Og Depresjon" and got a limited edition release. Later in 2009, Den Saakaldte agreed to re-issue the "Øl, Mørke Og Depresjon" material, along with bonus live and rehearsal tracks, on UK label Aesthetic Death - which is released at the start of 2010 on limited digipack CD.

SUBMERGED "Oxygenate" MCD 6€
(Bad Vugum)
Authentic Finnish mid-90s noise rock sound from this underrated Oulu-based quartet. Submerged were described to "combine the dissonance of Big Black with the riffing of Helmet" and adding the slightly more metallic heaviness of Fudge Tunnel into the mix, the description should be enough to wet the appetite of people into the aforementioned bands. Simply put: you need this disc.
www.myspace.com/mikkojuntunen

SUBMERGED "Sheddings" MCD 6€
(Bad Vugum)
Final release (1998) from this Finnish noise rock outfit, who on this disc moved from the tight, riff-heavy Helmet-style sound towards a more original, almost garage-y sound where guitars create a wall of sound and the drums take on a more hypnotic percussive approach. Definitely influenced by the early Bad Vugum roster, but less heavier Amphetamine Reptile bands also come to mind.

BEHERIT "Engram" LP 16€
(Svart Records)
The comeback album of this Finnish black metal legend, spitting forth a mixture of the old primitivity, minimalism of the synth -period and even something new. New analog mastering, approved by Nuclear Holocausto Vengeance. Second vinyl edition on red vinyl. Heavy glossy gatefold cover and sturdy printed inner bag.
www.beherit.fi

KATATONIA "Dance of December Souls" 2LP 19€
(Svart Records)
Having only previously been available on vinyl 17 years ago for a brief moment, a proper analog reissue of the starting point of Katatonia's career has been in high demand. After several months of meticulous preparation, Svart Records have come up with the definitive edition of this seminal album. The "Dance of December Souls" double vinyl includes both the original album and the "Jhva Elohim Meth" mini album, with all music carefully remastered for vinyl, resulting in sound that's much more dynamic and far less compressed than what the CD version has to offer. This is cold, analog Northern gothic metal at its absolute finest. The 2LP has thick gatefold covers, printed inner bags and two records on black vinyl.
www.myspace.com/katatonia

REVEREND BIZARRE "In the Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend" 2LP 20€
(Svart Records)
Reverend Bizarre's debut album "In the Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend" is perhaps the most revered work in their entire output. Originally released in 2002 upon an unsuspecting world, the album has already became a doom metal milestone in mere eight years. To help its grim legacy grow, Svart Records has pressed "In the Rectory..." on vinyl. Aside from the 74 minutes of epic traditional doom metal on two black LP records, the vinyl release consists of thick gatefold covers stamped with copper foil and a large booklet with unreleased photos. The music has been remastered to get the most out of the dynamic analog medium.

RIPPIKOULU "Musta Seremonia" LP 16€
(Svart Records)
This album is one of the best kept secrets in the Finnish underground metal scene. It is also the very first death metal recording with lyrics spat out in the Finnish language. Rippikoulu began their musical endeavours back in the late eighties, and like so many of their contemporaries, evolved from primitive punk noise to death metal. However, while many bands played death metal with groovy riffing and overall headbanging attitude, Rippikoulu's choice of style was darker. Their downtuned metal is bleak and nearly unbearably heavy in its execution, dark and soul-searching in its themes, intertwining faster bursts of chaos with slow, doomy passages. Rippikoulu released the "Musta Seremonia" demo album on tape in 1993 and then disappeared. They never gained much popularity in their time, but their legacy has steadily grown in time. Countless metal fans worldwide have adored their shoddy bootleg copies of the "Musta Seremonia" tape - now the stars are finally right for a legitimate re-release. The album has been remastered from the original DAT master tape, cleaned up and amplified. Two separate masters were created, a louder, bass-heavy one for the CD and a more vintage sounding one for the vinyl edition. So, the new decade begins with the unleashing of this shadowy beast upon the planet. You have been warned. Black vinyl in gatefold sleeve. Limited to 400 copies.

VON TILL, STEVE "A Grave is a Grim Horse" LP 15€
(Svart Records)
Perhaps the history of the song is innate within us. At least that's what we might glean from Steve Von Till's third Neurot Recordings solo outing "A Grave is a Grim Horse". Intertwined with interpretations of songs by Nick Drake, Townes Van Zant, Mickey Newberry and Lyle Lovett, Von Till's powerful yet subtly graceful originals merge with a lexicon that manifests as something beyond signature, something beyond the concept of persona that popular culture has repeatedly sold us over the past 50 years. Where his previous releases showed reverence for folk music forms of the past, "A Grave is a Grim Horse" peers directly inward, drawing from this history of song and earnestly embracing the need we all share to etch our mark upon the artifacts that will ultimately survive us. Steve Von Till is most widely recognized as vocalist and guitarist in Bay Area heavy post-psychedelic punk legends Neurosis. But, the breadth of his talents and interests reaching far beyond that band's thunderous intensity have been well established over the course of related projects like the experimental offshoot Tribes of Neurot, psych-drone band Harvestman and acoustic guitar based solo releases "As the Crow Flies" (2000) and "If I Should Fall to the Field" (2002). Remastered black vinyl in gatefold sleeve.

VON TILL, STEVE "If I Should Fall to the Field" LP 16€
(Svart Records)
Von Till's first solo effort, "As the Crow Flies", proved that subtle, acoustic songs could sound equally as intense, droning and heavy as Neurosis. Now, shorn of such ironic novelty, Von Till shows a depth and breadth to his songwriting that makes the majestic melodies and crescendos of "If I Should Fall to the Field" flow like the bloodlines that connect us all throughout human history. Svart Records continues its mission to release Neurosis vocalist Steve Von Till's solo albums on vinyl. After last year's "A Grave is a Grim Horse" vinyl it is now time to unleash his earlier solo work "If I Should Fall to the Field". Like the previous LP release, it is warmly remastered for the analogue medium using the vintage lathe cut method and then wrapped in a thick, gorgeous gatefold jacket. Clear vinyl, limited to 500 copies.

XYSMA "First & Magical" LP 18€
(Svart Records)
Of all the bands born out of the Scandinavian extreme death metal explosion in the late eighties, Xysma was one of the most innovative. This is the sound of a death metal band pushing forward into uncharted territories. This is a limited, completely remastered vinyl edition of this groundbreaking 1993 album. It comes in thick laminated gatefold covers and includes a large booklet with previously unseen material. Black vinyl, limited to 300 copies.

DETRITIVORE "Pakt" CD 10€
(Lyderhorn Records)
Alternating between light and heavy, while being simultaneously beautiful and ugly, the Norwegian duo Detritivore manages to mix these elements on their debut LP, "Pakt". Essentially a concept album depicting disillusionment with religion and subsequent descent into darkness, the album is a harrowing experience of not quite drone, not quite noise, and not quite doom metal, but a true amalgamation of the three. "Pakt" is produced by Joakim Jensen, mastered by James Plotkin, and features mesmerizing illustrations by Justin Bartlett. Mini-gatefold CD.

ALL HAIL THE TRANSCENDING GHOST "s/t" CD 10€
(Cold Spring Records)
The debut album from All Hail the Transcending Ghost - a joint collaboration between Henrik Nordvargr Björkk (MZ.412, Toroidh, Folkstorm etc) and Tim Bertilsson (Fear Falls Burning, Switchblade). Together the Swedish legends have created arguably one of the most haunting drone-dark-ambient-industrial works in recent years, invoking the spirits of old Nordvargr, meets the sludge-doom vibe of Tim's hellish guitar. This has to be the most unsettling work from Nordvargr, as the man himself states "truly the most scary music I have recorded". An icy chill down your spine... a cold hand on your shoulder... you are never alone in the darkness.

BUZZOV·EN "Sore" CD 10€
(Roadrunner Records)
Opening with the repeated audio sample "welcome to violence" over a wash of rumbling white noise, occasional bass notes, and gunshot snare hits, "Sore" captures the mammoth drumming abilities of Ash Lee, Kirk's exceptionally painful pick-slides down his Les Paul, and the punishing, hardcore brutality of this band at their peak. Unfortunately, it was precisely the elements the band sang about that took them down. Heroin and years of physical abuse took their toll on the original incarnation of Buzzov.en, and Kirk was left holding the bag - quite literally - as the band imploded. Over the next few years, he would reassemble Buzzov.en numerous times with different lineups, some to great effect, some to quite the opposite, however, none with the same kind of viciousness as this one.

DOZELIMIT "Constructions of the Highest Architecture" CD 10€
(RAIG)
One thing's for sure - Dozelimit really love their delay pedals. There's hardly a moment on their debut album "Constructions of the Highest Architecture" where the Russian duo aren't bathing their haunting guitar lines and rumbling amp drones in delay, making this exercise in dark metallic dronecraft super spacey and dreamy. This disc features seven untitled tracks from Dozelimit, all slow, down-tuned guitar based soundscapes that combine crushing doomdirge heaviness, endless stretches of shimmering feedback, and buzzing industrial machine drones that often resembles a doomier Troum, or even the instrumental sludge/drone project Fulci. The opener layers gentle delay-flecked guitar strum over descending sheets of metallic drone and shimmer, the dark, cinematic guitar figures that slowly emerge from the gloom have an almost jazzy feel, the softer ambience merging with super-heavy ambient doomdrone and dark rumbling synths. The following track has more floating fragile guitar figures combining with melodious high-end drones to form echoing fragmented melodies that ripple through black space, hovering high above swirling murky seas of tape hiss and granular noise. The guitars move from slowly bending notes that form into a sort of deep-space blues into sheets of blackened tremelo and minimal ambient hum, and heavy rattling vibrations appear, as if from some leviathan engine grinding in the void. Most of the album is this mingling of gorgeous guitar ambience and heavy industrial throb, circular melodies and luminescent ambience stretched across space, the guitar notes decaying into darkness, mutated into strange swarms of high end chitter and nocturnal hum, swirling into clusters of percussive sounds into a kind of psychedelic blackened space music, like Cisfintum or Mauriozio Bianchi mixed with the guitarscapes of MGR. But the last two tracks drop the hammer, unleashing a black wave of crushing ambient doom riffage a la early Sunn O))), slow drifting slabs of monstrous down tuned heaviness and blackened tremolo riffing slathered in droning electronics, weird glitchy noise, and sweeps of oscillator tones that could have been lifted from a Delia Derbyshire score, sculpted into bleak stuttering doomscapes.

ENDNAME "Dreams of a Cyclops" CD 10€
(RIAG)
The first album from this Moscow-based instrumental space-metal group has the heavy prog feel but it's injected into a super heavy sludge/doom weightiness that often sounds like a kind of stately prog-doom. These guys have been compared to Pelican a bit, and there's definitely some of that sound going on here, but EndName add a bunch of their own eccentric sounds and turn it into something uniquely theirs, a mix of instrumental King Crimson -influenced prog, winding doom riffing, space rock atmospherics and quirky electronic soundscaping that puts an emphasis on heavy, hypnotic grooves, incorporating lots of synthesizer, Frippy guitar work, tribal percussion and even didgeridoo into their odd art-metal. The proggy math-doom workout of opener "Inception" goes from stuttering Meshuggah -like riffage and cascading sheets of processed guitar into a repetitious, sinister doom metal riff driven by a lurching angular rhythm and constant harmonic squeals. "North" is slow pounding doom metal mixed with symphonic synth strings and pounding industrial clang, a lumbering cinematic doom instrumental that opens up into weirdly sunny melodic passages, soaring FX-heavy guitar solos, and some baroque Ren Faire keyboards towards the end that makes this sound like some weird proggy 80's doom. The fourteen minute "Eclipse" has Floydian guitar atmospherics flowing into an epic 80's metal/cop show groove with propulsive drums and melodic metallic riffing, a killer hook at the center of it, breaking of into tribal hand-drum percussion and atmospheric droning; halfway into it, the track starts to sound like older Pelican jamming with a drum circle before slipping back into that killer quasi-disco groove, then gets all spacey at the end with odd countrified guitars and more hand percussion. Heavy stop-start riffing dominates "Beyond the Scope" with an almost Helmet / Gore style groove, heavy angular sludge rock with creepy spacey lead guitar. "Dissolution" opens with delayed didgeridoo drones and spacey synth drift, a deep cosmic ambience streaked with backwards guitar, chimes, buried electronic pulse, and synth strings, a total krautrock-inspired dronescape a la Tangerine Dream / Klaus Schulze, an eerie descending melody gradually returning to the ominous didgeridoo buzz. And closer "Dissociation" returns to the massive processed slabs of progged out sludge metal with another lumbering stop/start riff and more sheets of FX-heavy guitar, crushing plodding drone-riffage and swirling cosmic synths merging into a slow and propulsive groove, the drums a mechanical tick-tock pulse, riffs constantly changing and chugging, the drums blasting off into volleys of ferocious double bass later on, joined by percussive clang and crashing cymbals, mutating into a frenzy of spaced out thrash metal riffing at the very end.

MOUNTAIN OF JUDGEMENT "s/t" CD 10€
(RAIG)
The intro to the opening song "Neptunes Reign" lays it all out, with sweeping nebulous synths soaring over crushing stoned sludge metal, the riffs huge and droning, the drummer bashing out slow-motion elephantine beats, the zoned-out vocals sung in a chant-like cadence. If it sounds like these guys are evoking a heavy Sleep vibe, you'd be correct. Much of this disc reminds me of early Sleep, and fans of the stoner metal gods will probably dig Mountain of Judgement's take on this sound. This is much more spacey and acid-fried, though; while the pounding gooey lava-lamp metal grinds through massive Sabbathian depths, those synthesizers are way out in front, splattering the sludge with endless black hole drones, whooshing lift-off fx, and deep-space oscillations. These guys wear their love for classic 70's space rock proudly on their sleeves, particularly drawing from the music of Hawkwind and Ash Ra. Throughout the disc, the metal will often drift away and be replaced by long stretches of moody psychedelic jamming and swathes of pure fx freakery, and when the crushing Sab-riffage re-emerges, it's joined with soaring clean vocals (that can give this a classic heavy metal vibe) and some killer wailing psych-guitar freakouts. And the song "Globule" is a standout, a crushing, surprisingly catchy chunk of space-pop-sludge. And much like how U.S. Christmas sometimes blends their Southern rock influences into their driving space rock, there's a bit of Southern booziness that can be heard in Mountain of Judgement's sound, too. You can definitely hear it on the last track "Magic Eye", where, for just a second, the band enters a zone where they sound remarkably like Electric Wizard covering something by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Their hefty psych-doom owes a lot to their influences, but their combination of kosimiche freakout and narcotized doom is one of the better ones that I've heard. It's like hearing Sleep jamming with Dik Mik and Klaus Schulze, or Electric Wizard with the mysticism and space rock worship cranked to the max and the darkness turned down a bit, their controls set for some distant interstellar destiny instead of black oblivion. Recommended to fans of the aforementioned bands looking for their next fix of blasted drug-sludge.

TENHORNEDBEAST "Hunts & Wars" CD 10€
(Cold Spring Records)
TenHornedBeast’s third album for Cold Spring Records is titled “Hunts & Wars”. Recorded over a three year period from 2006 to 2009 this album introduces subtle changes to the established TenHornedBeast sound with shorter delicate interludes separating longer tracks that rage with heavy distortion and doom-drone barbarism. “Hunts & Wars” progresses the established TenHornedBeast sound using leaden, sub-tuned bass guitar to create rhythms and riffs that dominate a battlefield of vast ritual percussion and droning walls of electric dissonance, creating epic and expansive textures that by turns burn with frost and freeze with fire. Heavily influenced by the oneiric visions of Robert E Howard and Lord Dunsany. ”Hunts & Wars” seeks to evoke the elemental, anti-modern fantasias of these writers and is presented in a lavish digipak designed by noted American graphic designer Kevin Yuen (Sunn O))), Wolves in the Throne Room) to its full grotesque glory. The days have come when the steel will rule. Titans arise, monuments fall. Ballads of victory and defeat are sung aloud as from the highest steps we are swept on to the eternal Hunts and Wars.

VIR' "Horna" CD 10€
(Mosquito Records/RAIG)
A mixture of shimmering krautrock and pulverizing doom-drone, starting off with a gorgeous black field of sparkling melodic chimes and pulsating synths buried under layers of rumbling drone, very reminiscent of Tangerine Dream and Cluster but bathed in endless shadows, before moving into the crushing thirteen minute second track. Here the band moves into punishing waves of amplifier sludge and static distorted chords drifting through space, like Black Boned Angel or Sunn O))) moving through jet-black expanses of Teutonic space music, grinding guitar drone smeared in caustic noise and deep bass blasts, wheezing synths streaking overhead, distant mechanical rhythms and robotic tribal beats appearing through the murk. The sound is massive, and regardless of how heavy this becomes, there is always that classic kosmiche music sound underneath it all, making this much more than just another slab of rumbling guitar-drone exploration. The third track layers multiple strummed guitars all playing a simple two-chord riff with more gurgling electronics and crackling distortion while a frantic male voice shrieks in Russian over top, and the end result sounds like a weird sort of ambient power-electronics before it moves into a seven minite stretch of massively low-end guitar-feedback undulations and metallic scrapings. The last two tracks explore similiarly weird territory, all revolving around immense oceans of distorted guitar drone that are populated by blasts of harsh noise and menacing Prurient-style high-end feedback abuse, blissed out krautrock ambience, distant free-jazz horns, densely layered collages of voice recordings, thunderous sheet-metal reverberations, weird electronic sounds, fragments of sampled dance-pop music creeping through the filth, and other random sound events floating through VIR's monstrous dronemetal galaxies... Weird, nightmarish droneological heaviness for sure, but it totally works, invoking all kinds of apocalyptic hallucinations through these stretched out slabs of black murmur.

WICKED KING WICKER "God is Busy... Save Yourself" CD 10€
(Cold Spring Records)
Wicked King Wicker is pure doom. Their brand of guttural expression strips away the rock'n'roll base and leaves nothing for the listener than the caustic reality of the darkest side of life. It is heavy, barbaric and void of hope. Wicked King Wicker has taken the power of doom metal and added noise to mix to make its point. “God Is Busy… Save Yourself” is their 6th album, and their first released outside of the U.S. Wicked King Wicker is unique, and their extreme doom stands alone as the heaviest, most brutal doom imaginable and it may take you places you don’t want to go.

DANISHMENDT "Un Passé Aride" CD 10€
(Cold Void Emanations/Odio Sonoro/Architect of Noise)
To ignite thirst, through enthroning blackscapes and suffocating, hypnotic noise. While such a description might seem nebulous, it depicts quite accurately the atmospheres created by this French ensemble. Danishmendt crafts ambience like no other band, and if their scope can be reduced to a few words (such as black metal, doom, noise...), no genre seems to fit them, and they seem to fit none. Quite content about it, the five lurkers evolve between borders in a world of their own. “Un Passé Aride” furthers their journey into obsidian fields and post-apocalyptic dull cities, through seven brooding and crushing episodes. “Un Passé Aride” evokes thirst, and a bleak horizon. Digipak.

SARCOFAGUS "Live in Studio 1979" LP 18€
(Svart Records)
These are the long-lost first recordings of the grandfather of Finnish Heavy Metal. This tape was made in Pan Studio, Helsinki, Finland, during a single recording session in May 1979 and buried in time soon after. Lately the tape was rediscovered and is now available on limited high quality vinyl, as it should be! These early tracks are a brilliant document of the birth of Sarcofagus - the music has its roots in blues and progressive rock, as the band was still searching for its distinctive heavy metal style. Finnish national radio played some of these songs, which then led to a record deal and the rest is heavy metal history. Beautifully remastered on 140 gram clear vinyl! 350 gram heavy rough gatefold covers plus a large 16 page booklet with liner notes and unseen photographs!

FALL OF EFRAFA "Inlé" CD 12€
(Denovali/Halo of Flies/Alerta Antifascista/Sound Devastation Records)
The long awaited final chapter of the "The Warren of Snares" trilogy, Fall Of Efrafa conclude their mythological tale of an uprising against an oppressive regime, based upon an interpretation of the classic novel "Watership Down" by Richard Adams. "Inlé" is crushing yet beautiful; ambient and atmospheric heavy post hardcore, bringing to mind the likes of Neurosis, Buried Inside, Envy, Earth and Godspeed You Black Emperor. Cardboard gatefold cover + 8 page inlay.

GRUEL "s/t" CD 10€
(Flat Earth Records/At War with False Noise)
CD issue of this instant classic of avant-sludge. This is the only recording Gruel made, or will ever make since they announced their recent split, and what a testament it is! Like The Melvins playing King Crimson's "Red" album, this is at both theatrical, beautifully composed, and troglodyte-ianly heavy. Utterly immersive, each passage of quiet atmospherics is shattered by a barrage of brilliant repetitious riffing. Four 15 minute-long songs and it's totally captivating from start to finish. Will definitely be right up the alleys of those into Melvins, Swans, Grief, Throbbing Gristle, Goblin, Harvey Milk etc. 500 copies in a stickered PVC sleeve, with the disc wrapped in a big double-sided full colour poster.

OMEGA MASSIF "Geisterstadt / Kalt" 2CD 15€
(Denovali Records)
The sounds of this album may remind you of the good old records of Pelican and Isis, but Omega Massif go much further. The spiralling melodies overlaying the rolling riffs and pummeling basses make the songs of "Geisterstadt" sound celestial and infernal at the same time. The diversity and ingenuity of Omega Massif is maybe best seen in the 10 minute monster "Nebelwand"- starting with fragile drums and melodies, the tension slowly increases by including an accordion, followed by short outbursts of massive sound walls. However, Omega Massif are not in a hurry, and so it takes 6 minutes until the powerful sound storms interweaved with the elevated melodies typical for the band finally take the lead and dominate the song until the end. This is not the usual silent start/big climax thing well-known from postrock records - this is one of the best instrumental/ metal/doomcore records in the past years! And remember that this is only Omega Massif's debut, one can only vaguely guess what is to be expected in the future. Comes in heavy triple gatefold cardboard covers and includes the demo "Kalt" as a second bonus CD!

BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS "s/t" LP 12€
(Vendetta Records)
Doom can be slow and low and still rock. Take B.Son for example, whose particular brand of doomic energy is drawn from bands like Harvey Milk, Karp, The Melvins, godheadSilo, more a sort of downtuned propulsive sludge with doom elements, than pure doom. But goddamn if it isn't just as brutal and heck, doomy... Thick ropy buzz bass, pounding destructo drums, throaty howls, grinding guitars, all lurching and swaying like some drugged and demented super rock doom beast, all filtered through a bit of grinding screamo and some buzzed out metallic blackness. There are moments of blisssed out post rockiness, and weird laid back grooves, stretched out near ambience and dense little mathy jams, but those moments just serve to keep the doomed sludge rock fury from becoming too much. Mastered by James Plotkin. Limited edition.

CASKETS OPEN "But You Rule" LP 12€
(Streaks Records)
"But You Rule" the is one of the doom full-length's of the year! At least it is the freshest injection to the genre for a long time. Helsinki's Caskets Open develop further the amazing demo and distill their own distinctive blend of cold, extremely violent but still subtle warm sound on this debut LP. Razorsharp edges in sound and morbid, socially aware lyrics. A clicheless mix of drunken, anti-clerical and sleazy doom with a hint of post-punk, imagine Joy Division fucking roughly with St. Vitus on a dark night in a graveyard. Limited edition.

CELESTE "Morte(s) Nee(s)" 2LP 20€
(Denovali Records)
They did it again. They again wrote a heavier, better, darker full lenght than the last time and in this context they enhanced their unique, incomparable sound with new elements like samples and they experimented for the first time with guest musicians (from Les Fragments de la Nuit) plus new instruments like piano and strings. Celeste with piano and strings? Yes! And it fits amazingly. Of course they also again created a new level of denseness in their sound - definitely one of the best and most unique metalbands of today. Don't pass up on (one of) the heaviest albums of the year! Color vinyl in beautiful gatefold sleeve. Limited edition.

DYSTOPIA "s/t" LP 12€
(Skuld Releases)
At long last, the final Dystopia full length will see the light of day! This record contains 6 new tracks, plus a cover of an unreleased song by Dino's old band Carcinogen. Recorded at Tim Green's Louder Studios during various sessions between 2004-2005, this record is the last chapter of Dystopia's existence writing bleak and heavy doom ridden punk. Crazy shit as we know them for! Comes with a 20 pages full colour booklet with lots of collages.

HEIRS "Fowl" LP 15€
(Denovali Records)
Upon returning to Melbourne after 67 shows across Europe and Japan, Heirs commenced work on their second album, "Fowl". With the baton of core song-writing being handed from drummer Damian Coward to guitarist, Brent Stegeman, Heirs turned their attention toward their electronic underbelly, honing in on the industrial vapour and blackened ambience that permeated their debut, "Alchera", distilling the underlying sense of melody with an arresting sense of dread. "Fowl" displays a deliberate shift towards a broader sonic palette, enabling the band to incorporate disparate in­uences and approaches to create a sound that is uniquely their own. From wheezing blasts of industrial steam to weeping passages of gothic suspense, "Fowl" is a fully realised analysis of the repugnant. Its pugilistic rhythmic foundation, reverb soaked guitars, crackling electronics and deadpan dark-wave meditation create an abstract dronescape of industrial dirge and metallic ambience coalesced into an ambitious whole. For fans of Swans, Controlled Bleeding, HTRK, Pelican, Godflesh and Nadja. Limited edition.

KODIAK / NADJA Split LP 15€
(Denovali Records)
In doom and drone, genres where much of the stuff can sound remarkably similar, here is a band that stands apart as a beacon. Nadja have the deep drones and all the darkness of doom, but also have intricate melodies that permeate their long dirges...What's commendable about Nadja is the alchemical experimentation with the genres resulting in a unique concoction of doom metal, drone, shoegazer layering, and avant-rock explorations. Kodiak is not a band that you just play for enjoyment; it needs time and attention, but when it locks you in its slowly developing, pachyderm-paced punishing groove, Kodiak has a lot to offer, proving that monotony and monolithic heaviness are enough to make great songs, if you know how. Kodiak definitely know it. Thick gatefold covers and 180g heavyweight vinyl. Limited edition.

KYLESA "Static Tensions" LP 12€
(La Familia Releases)
For fans of Baroness, Cult Of Luna, Isis and Mastodon. "Static Tensions" also sees Kylesa further progressing with their songwriting, both in terms of the psychedelia suggested on the "Time Will Fuse..." LP and the sheer brute force and memorable structures they’ve become known for over the course of their 3 albums, split albums and EPs. The at times blackened death metal feel of "Said And Done" and the piano-laced, middle-eastern tinged "Running Red" highlight this diversity of sound, yet at all times it remains distinctly Kylesa. The percussion heavy "Unknown Awareness" is perhaps the most emotionally heavy tune the band has ever written. Comes with 8 page LP size booklet!

Heavy 180g vinyl, heavy gatefold covers, and heavy printed inner sleeves. Limited edition.

REVEREND BIZARRE "In the Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend" 2LP 20€
(Svart Records)
Reverend Bizarre's debut album "In the Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend" is perhaps the most revered work in their entire output. Originally released in 2002 upon an unsuspecting world, the album has already became a doom metal milestone in mere eight years. To help its grim legacy grow, Svart Records has pressed "In the Rectory..." on vinyl. Aside from the 74 minutes of epic traditional doom metal on two black LP records, the vinyl release consists of thick gatefold covers stamped with copper foil and a large booklet with unreleased photos. The music has been remastered to get the most out of the dynamic analog medium.

RIPPIKOULU "Musta Seremonia" LP 16€
(Svart Records)
This album is one of the best kept secrets in the Finnish underground metal scene. It is also the very first death metal recording with lyrics spat out in the Finnish language. Rippikoulu began their musical endeavours back in the late eighties, and like so many of their contemporaries, evolved from primitive punk noise to death metal. However, while many bands played death metal with groovy riffing and overall headbanging attitude, Rippikoulu's choice of style was darker. Their downtuned metal is bleak and nearly unbearably heavy in its execution, dark and soul-searching in its themes, intertwining faster bursts of chaos with slow, doomy passages. Rippikoulu released the "Musta Seremonia" demo album on tape in 1993 and then disappeared. They never gained much popularity in their time, but their legacy has steadily grown in time. Countless metal fans worldwide have adored their shoddy bootleg copies of the "Musta Seremonia" tape - now the stars are finally right for a legitimate re-release. The album has been remastered from the original DAT master tape, cleaned up and amplified. Two separate masters were created, a louder, bass-heavy one for the CD and a more vintage sounding one for the vinyl edition. So, the new decade begins with the unleashing of this shadowy beast upon the planet. You have been warned. Black vinyl in gatefold sleeve. Limited to 400 copies.

SAW THROAT "Inde$troy" LP 12€
(Skuld Releases/Epistrophy Recording)
In 1989 this project was born and executed by members of Doom, Sore Throat and an unknown guy called Hammy - a killer one song (divided into chapters though) concept album was the result. Passionate, epic and pounding crust that is heavily influenced by bands like Amebix, Antisect, Axegrinder.... Cool riffage, pounding drums, keyboards and rough vocals are the trademark of their mostly midtempo anarchocrust sound. The allover topic of the album is the man-made destruction of our planet delivered in an urgent way, emphasized by the apocalyptic artwork of Steve Hutton. Re-issue comes in a nicely put together gatefold + linernotes by the "singer".

SUMA / PYRAMIDO Split LP 12€
(Head Records)
Both bands come from Malmö, Sweden. Suma play a 17 minute cataclysmic doom droned song. And Pyramido (Burst and Crowpath members) play two songs of a doom rock oriented sludge not unline Weedeater or Bongzilla. All songs are unreleased.
