MP3 Album: $6.99 Download

Limited vinyl LP pressing. Expanded reissue of this 2011 release including three new tracks. Storming out of East Texas, Rockett Queen has been a force to be reckoned with since bursting onto the scene. Fronted by charismatic, explosive lead vocalist/guitarist Walter Lee, driven by the untamed Jay Scars on lead guitar, Chaz Graves on bass and Keith Crash on drums, Rockett Queen has cultivated immense recognition and rave reviews. "The band formed with one real objective in mind and that was to put together an honest rock band with no gimmicks," Lee explains. "Just a four-on-the-floor, leave-nothing-left-on-the-stage rock 'n' roll band. We all came together out of the desire to do something genuine and not watered down into some small sub-genre of music that people feel the need to do these days. We felt people were really looking for an honest rock band. "

Often described as a "black metal supergroup", TWILIGHT has featured in it's ranks, at one point or another, members of Xasthur, Draugar, Krieg, Leviathan, Lurker of Chalice, Minsk, Nachtmystium, Old Man Gloom, & Sonic Youth. Through the band's diverse cast of musicians, they broke out of the traditional black metal blueprint, opening the style up to broader interpretation with a deft artistic vision. Sophomore, "Monument to Time End", features vastly epic tracks through a genre-crossing approach and cast. Flattered by a transparent, warm yet powerful production, the record still follows an overall black metal aesthetic, although flirts with elements of postrock, doom, industrial and all sorts of aural psychedelia. Enhanced by supreme, utterly creative performances on all instruments, and elaborate layering, this record could be seen as visionary. One might say they perform post black metal by it's most literal meaning, before it became a genre. Prophecy Productions announces the reissue of TWILIGHT'S sophomore follow-up, "Monument To Time End" on LP. Originally released by Southern Lord Records in 2010, today, this special reissued vinyl edition features completely new and original cover artwork by Jef Whitehead (Leviathan/Lurker Of Chalice) and includes 3 bonus tracks, not included on previous vinyls.

"I think that it's fair to say that Dope is one of the more evolved bands from our genre & time period," says band mastermind Edsel Dope. "Our new single, 'Hold On,' is a great example of this. It sounds like Dope, but it is clearly, very modern, and in no way reflects a band who is stuck in it's past. The hooks are melodic and memorable, while the musicianship is on full display. I'm very proud of Dope's ability to walk that evolutionary line."

Abhoria

Abhoria

ON SALE $24.98 Vinyl: $24.01 Buy

Abhoria was created by guitarist Vor (aka Trevor Portz of Ashen Horde) as a way to satiate his appetite to play classic, aggressive black metal. Recruiting some top-notch players from the L.A. metal underground to join him, he rounded out the band with vocalist Walthrax (ex- Catheter) and bassist Koszmar (Vimana). The band quickly got to work on their debut album with engineer Shane Howard (Vale of Pnath, Martriden, Helleborus), and the result is a black metal album that harks back to the 90s black metal scene, but with modern production. While rooted in the more brutal side of black metal, the album blends the requisite blast beats and tremolo picked guitars with many melodic passages, doom-inspired detours and a variety of tempos. While "Mountebank" is a relentless blitz of high-speed black metal, closing track "Sunless" is a seven-minute epic that incorporates mid-paced, atmospheric grooves and clean vocals. Though the energy never relents, the album is not relentless. Abhoria is hellbent on carrying on the musical torch of the genre's founding fathers Immortal, Dark Funeral and Emperor.

Doom experimentalists Völur from Toronto and San Francisco's ever-mercurial neo-classical ambient collective Amber Asylum team up for the split release "Breaker Of Rings/Blood Witch." Both artists are driven by the vision of creating dark and heavy music built around the use of strings, yet differ in approach while beautifully complimenting one another on this release. On the a-side, Völur tell a story of alienation and trauma, a warrior's introspective hell and disability to resonate with a reality past battle. Expanding their style into radical musical niches such as funeral doom and 12-tone music, the tracks are inspired by "the Niflung cycle from the Poetic Edda, the aftermath of battles and the toll violence takes on the psyches of alleged heroes" according to bass player and singer Lucas Gadke. The material was originally conceived as one track for the trio's first album "Ancestors" (2017) but shelved "due to it's length and energy. The middle contains a piece written for a string quartet in the style of Alban Berg." Thus, "Breaker Of Rings" places the band somewhere between funeral doom and a horror movie soundtrack. Amber Asylum's b-side is a morbidly beautiful story of disease and it's victim, initiated by penetration of a female mosquito as the metaphorical "Blood Witch." Surrealistic string arrangements and voices of eerie presence enriched by relentless analog synths are painting distinctive images of discomfort and beauty, delirium and devotion, anguish and ultimate acceptance. Band leader Kris Force says the four songs are based on "early 20th century Indian love lyrics and feature performances by Grayceon's Jackie Perez Gratz on cello as well as bassist Erica Stoltz from Sanhedrin. I wanted to create something in my own voice yet sharing the same vibration as Völur's side of the split." In true Prophecy spirit, "Breaker Of Rings/Blood Witch" unites like-minded artists who share a similar vision but find very different expressions of it. If you dare to dive into these sonic seas and the depths they offer, you will find yourself in an alternating bath of joy and despair

Known to walk among men from Christmas to Epiphany and thus symbolizing a time of transition, Perchta has many faces and guises, at once radiant beauty and wrinkled, old hag, both unforgiving punisher and nourishing guardian, haunting destroyer as well as rewarding creator. "Ufang," the project's first album, is just as multi-faceted, with the four key songs representing the elements of earth, wind, fire and water, entirely intoned in local vernacular. In it's epic scope, "Ufang" sounds like a tempest of tremolo guitars and ritualistic folk with a voice on top to pierce marrow and bone. Remarkably, Perchta is also a functional live formation, sporting extravagant light and stage properties made from driftwood between which the front woman will sermonize, face-painted in historical black garb with embroidered belt and cast-iron broom "Ufang" is available as Digipak CD, LP and 2CD artbook (48 pages, 18x18cm) with all lyrics, additional texts about the Perchta lore, poetry and photo material as well as two bonus tracks.

AURAS new album explores the complex relationship between humankind and technology, as people evolve from symbiotic parts of mother nature into cybernetic bits of code. The intellectual depth of the subject matter on Binary Garden is juxtaposed by its immediate accessibility. The expansion of AURAS into bigger melodic hooks is more suited to the digital single oriented era than ever, even as Binary Garden works as a cohesive whole. AURAS hail from a country that’s produced a high volume of heavy music innovation. It’s the nation that blessed the world with the legendary Rush, prog-metal pioneers Voivod, metalcore madmen Protest The Hero, and death metal stalwarts Cryptopsy. A newer entry to this lineage, AURAS operate in a musical landscape instantly familiar to devotees of Meshuggah, Periphery, The Contortionist, and Tool. But their specific take on the genre combines the bite of thrash, the weight of death metal, and the spirit of hardcore with a hypnotic groove-oriented pulse shrouded in a captivating atmosphere.

San Francisco post-black metal outfit BOTANIST and Los Angeles based electronic project THIEF release the split-album "Cicatrix/Diamond Brush". Despite their stylistic differences, both bands have much in common. They were both conceived and are mostly recording as solo-projects run by a single mastermind. Both multi-instrumentalists recruit live members to put their music on the stage. Yet the connection between BOTANIST's Otrebor aka Roberto Martinelli and Dylan Neal from THIEF runs deeper: Dylan Neal played hammered dulcimer in the post-black metal outfit and even after officially departing from BOTANIST, he has continued to contribute as a "silent" member, for example by writing the dulcimer and bass parts for the album "Collective: The Shape of He to Come". This personal connection between both bands is reflected in the material of this split-album. BOTANIST's "Cicatrix" contains previously unreleased tracks from the recording sessions of their acclaimed full-length "VI: Flora" (2014), which is also the record that Dylan toured on, when the band went to Europe and delivered their legendary performance at the Roadburn Festival in 2015. The botanical term 'cicatrix' refers to the scarring that shows on a plant after it has been damaged and the title track points towards the damage that mankind has inflicted at the global flora. While the backbone of THIEF's sound has been formed by manipulated sacred chant and choral samples, "Diamond Brush" prominently features live drums and electric guitars for the first time on one of their records. Thematically, Dylan explores a spiritual pursuit of awakening through the experience of transgression and suffering with allusions to Joyce, Salinger, Nabokov, and Mobb Deep. "Diamond Brush" is also intended as a companion to the third THIEF full-length, "The 16 Deaths of My Master", which is slated for release on the same day as the split-album."Cicatrix/Diamond Brush" constitutes essential listening to any follower of BOTANIST and THIEF. Tracklist: BOTANIST 1. Juglans Nigra 2. Styrax 3. Cicatrix 4. Antirrhinum 5. Balete (re-mix) 6. Streptocarpus (re-mix) THIEF 7. Hyena 8. Firethroat 9. Diamond Brush 10. 2700 Years 11. Acid Queen 12.

On their debut full-length "Blood", ALTARETH serve their sludgy guitars low and slow, with a slab of fuzz and a side of doom in massive portions. The Swedes from Gothenburg have built their musical foundation on a melding of heavy riffs and memorable melodies that is carried on four pillars of soaring vocals, fuzzy guitars, pounding drums, and fat, resonating bass. Thematically, "Blood" revolves around the dynamic relationship between the eternal and the imminent spheres of existence, communicated through elemental ideas like blood, sleep, and the moon, as well as delving into more immediate human struggles, and the notion of lives played out in an era of quantity over meaning. Since their formation in early 2013, ALTARETH have conjured a musical spirit filled with crunchy and harsh guitars that shows their passion for true metal, which is refined by the sludgy tempos of epic doom and layered with haunting vocal melodies that float across and above. ALTARETH take influences from a wide range of contemporary bands such as UNCLE ACID, SLEEP, WINDHAND, and PALLBEARER, but also from canonical outfits like ST. VITUS, BLACK SABBATH, and their compatriots CANDLEMASS. Swedish metal has clearly left a dark mark as ALTARETH also quote BATHORY and OPETH as sources of inspiration. Driven by such eclectic tastes, guitarist Niklas Sorum set out to encounter like minds with whom to create a filthy and massive yet melodic outfit that could energize the scene with much needed fuzzed-out quality down-tuned songs. When he finally found Mats, Sven, Paddy, and Vigfus, ALTARETH were born. Now the Swedes' debut album "Blood' more than fulfills the massive promise ALTARETH have shown from the day of their inception and early demos.

Quayde Lahue

Love Out Of Darkness

ON SALE $19.98 Vinyl: $16.63 Buy

Quayde La-who?! Quayde LaHĂĽe (or Quayde, for short). Since 2016 the Olympia, WA quintet have released a string of cassettes (even a limited VHS) to the underground heavy metal and hard rock music scene. Highlights of their humble beginnings include opening for Nik Turner's Hawkwind, being featured on Radio Fenriz and performing the final year of the prestigious Wings Of Metal Fest in Montreal. Love Out Of Darkness brings a more concise and produced sound than previously recorded. A heavy rock-oriented sound characterized by elaborate song structures, melodic hooks, blistering solos and pomp-infused harmonies. Musically reminiscent of 1970's arena rock, while bringing a new depth to the genre. Waging a one-woman war, singer Jenna Fitton commands Quayde with powerful and urgent vocals. Fitton's lyrical themes range from calling out misogynist rock tropes to painting stories of swords and sacred stones. Although fantastical seeming, these latter themes are based in reality. The battles we are collectively fighting on a daily basis. Struggles of depression, oppression and suffering that humankind has wrought against itself. It's not all hopeless though. There is growth and transformation through hardship. In "Before The Storm", Fitton states that, "there is a light that shines beyond the horizon." Out of darkness, love will prevail. The time has come for unity again.

Quill

Hooray It's a Deathtrip

ON SALE $19.98 Vinyl: $17.16 Buy

Double vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered and expanded edition. 2003 release from the Swedish stoner metal band. The band comments: "It's with great pleasure we're announcing this project. Having our earlier albums made available again is a real pleasure. Revisiting the old recordings was a true joy and in the process we found a bunch of tracks left off the original releases, all of them now included as bonus-tracks. The Quill are often referred to as a stoner rock and stoner metal band but they can also be regarded as a heavy metal band. They are influenced by late 1960s and early 1970s bands such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin, but also sound like 1990s grunge and stoner metal bands such as Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Monster Magnet, Kyuss and Corrosion of Conformity. Especially vocalist Magnus Ekwall who is often compared to Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell.

Aureole is Markov Soroka's abstract and ambient exploration of the universe around him. Being also the mastermind behind Tchornobog and Drown, these three projects all take place within the same narrative world, with Aureole exploring the depths of space. Fuzzed out and distinctly atmospheric, 2014's "Alunar' is Aureole's debut album and drips with Cascadian black metal sounds, yet emerges from a completely different locale. "Like any genre of music, there are true gems that transcend what our perceptions of that genre are, and I think Alunar is solidly in that category. " - Metal Bandcamp "It's a living, breathing landscape of hopelessness that this album paints in it's sprawling lamentations." - Cvlt Nation. "Alunar" is now reissued by Lupus Lounge / Prophecy Productions as Digipak CD and - for the first time - on LP (black and ltd. Silver).

Limited double 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Includes poster. 2017 release, the sophomore album from the Toronto-based experimental doom trio. Produced by the band and mixed by Charles Spearin (Broken Social Scene), Ancestors is the follow-up to Völur's celebrated debut, Disir, which was hailed as "a winsome blend of pastoral folk, gentle prog, atmospheric doom, and old world magic" by Noisey. Just as Disir dealt with themes surrounding female figures from mythology, Ancestors focuses on the heroines' male counterparts and is the second part of a planned four album series spotlighting various elements of the old Germanic spiritual world. Völur's songs are long, quasi-narrative pieces that feature Laura C. Bates' violin assuming the role traditionally executed by a guitar, allowing the bass playing of Lucas Gadke (also of Blood Ceremony) to take on unique responsibilities in both lead and melodic roles while drummer Jimmy Payment (Do Make Say Think) feeds the band's bombastic, crushing oomph. Doom music (not necessarily metal) is about slow contemplation and the transfixing power of heaviness and Völur's weighty riffs, layers of feedback, dynamic, angular melodies and moments of beauty give heed to the band's promise to always seek newer modes of musical expression and discovery. Moving between high-tension heaviness and beautiful pastoral moods, Völur aims to reflect the world of primordial nature inspired by ancient myths and chilling poems of death and heroism. Ancestors takes you into a world of stories that have been shrouded by the fog of ages. But there's nothing obscure about this album: it is the statement of an ambitious band defining their sonic territory. This is music as profound sound... prepare!

Ocean

Phanerozoic Live (Blk)

ON SALE $49.98 Vinyl: $47.73 Buy

Berliners The Ocean present an unusual live album that is a testimony of strange times: their Phanerozoic concept album performed live in it's entirety at a time when no shows were happening anywhere in the world. On September 25, 2020, in the middle of the global pandemic, The Ocean released their ninth studio album Phanerozoic II, the concluding episode of a conceptual trilogy that began with Precambrian 13 years before - and even without any touring to support the new album release, Phanerozoic II entered the official German album charts at No. 9. Phanerozoic Live is a live album like no other - it is a live album that was recorded in a cultural vacuum, a bizarre time that we will remember for the rest of our lives: a time when the world as we knew it suddenly stopped spinning. It is a live album that does without all the qualities that we usually appreciate about a live album: without the sounds of a cheering, exited crowd. But it is the very absence of this, it is the eerie silence between the songs that reminds us of what we miss most, and that gives these recordings a rare intensity and power.

In the same vein as their previous releases of subterranean acclaim, Wolftooth (2018) and Valhalla (2020), the band's latest release and label debut, entitled Blood & Iron, continues the band's journey through a treasure trove of fantasy-themed lyrical influences - exploring mystical and often treacherous themes of mythology, lore and legend with a focus on sorcery, battle and non-stop adventure! Recorded, mixed and mastered by longtime producer Jeremy Lovins, Blood & Iron is a true nod to classic, feel-good American heavy metal with modernized flair, providing an escape for the listener that hits hard without ever feeling pretentious or aloof.

Falkenbach were originally conceived as a solo-project by Vratyas Vakyas and officially came into being with the "Laeknishendr" demo in 1995. After the interlude of their fourth album, which partly featured reworked earlier material, the next full-length from the German composer and multi-instrumentalist who was again joined by musicians appeared to be a summary of all the elements from his previous works. "Tiurida" (2011) put the emphasis on the band's epic melodic pagan metal side, which was generously spiced with some earlier black metal elements. The album still evokes an overall impression of confident and experienced songwriting. Falkenbach had reached the point where they not only exactly knew their musical destination but also how to get there.
