MOLOCH/CLOSURE split 7" on FOT/KOTM


My friends in MOLOCH and CLOSURE have a split coming out soon. This will be a split release between the brilliant Feast of Tentacles and King of the Monsters labels and is up for pre-order now. I did the artwork for this record, really looking forward to seeing the final thing. If you don't know the bands then MOLOCH play evil sludge violence and CLOSURE play blistering power violence. This split harks back to the 90's when sludge and power violence went arm in arm. Brutal.

UK/EURO people get it from FEAST OF TENTACLES

VRLG 03: ENDLESS GRINNING SKULLS - Fear, Ignorance, Control EP out now!



After over a year in the making the new ENDLESS GRINNING SKULLS EP, and 3rd release for VIRAL AGE is now out and ready to order.

Listen to the first track of the EP, CATHOLIC BLUES


500 copies pressed onto black vinyl with a fold out poster cover. The artwork is an intense and violent depiction of the grim imagery of the lyrics. Venomous tirades directed at church and state, the apathetic masses and the foot soldiers of the far right. These are songs of rage and despair, a stark reminder that things are not ok.

The artwork for the centre labels was conjured from the mind of Skweeler (Icons of Filth, Poison Idea, Septic Death etc) and executed in conjunction with Sparky.

Individual copies £4 each
£5.50 ppd UK
£7.50 ppd EU
£8.50 ppd Rest of the World
First 40 copies come in a hand lino printed mailer.

Labels/distros get in touch for wholesale and trades

A big thank you to Matt Grundy/DIECAST DESIGN for doing the layout on this release. He took my scans of the individual pannels on scrappy bits of paper and assembled the layout for the release perfectly. Matt is a great illustrator and designer. He knows his shit and will make your shit look good. Get in touch with him for design work.

DOWNLOAD THE WOODS

The DEAD IN THE WOODS LP is now available to purchase as a digital download here:
http://deadinthewoods.bandcamp.com/

Distro Update


A few more new additions to the distro:
DRY HEAVES - s/t £3
Killer snotty hardcore from Sheffield. Think Circle Jerks/Adolescents. Yellow vinyl.

MANGLE/SUFFERINFUCK £3
MANGLE = Leicester powerviolence. Really raw and gloomy sounding, like THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE meets NOOTHGRUSH.
SUFFERINFUCK = Grind violence from Scotland. Somewhere between DESPISE YOU, HELLNATION and CROSSED OUT.

Nü-klē-ər Blast Suntan - BLOT OUT THE WORTHLESS SUN £10
A difficult record to describe, but it is absolutely killer! Space crust? At the core it is vaguely crusty hardcore, that reminds me of bands like LOOK BACK AND LAUGH (Including scathing female vocals) but with loads of crazy noise elements and psychedelic guitar leads. Loads going on here. Maybe not for everyone but if you 'get it' you will love it (like me). Lovely clear blue vinyl.

HUATA - ATAVIST OF MANN £9
Amazing occult doom/sludge from france. Reminds me a lot of ELECTRIC WIARD with some upbeat sections reminicent of CHURCH OF MISERY/early SLEEP. But the whole things has a lot of atmosphere, enhanced by brilliant use of organ and samples. Comes in a really nice digipack cover. Recommended.

DEAD IN THE WOODS – The Sign of the Son of Man LP.

The Sign of the Son of Man is the final output of Dead In The Woods.

Formed in 2008 with personnel from Army of Flying Robots, The Blueprint and Moloch among others, Dead In The Woods ’music has evolved from the down tempo, crust influenced metallic hardcore of their debut split LP with Dietpills to a looser, space rock influenced take on heavy music.

The Sign of the Son of Man is a document of Dead In The Woods as the band was in its final moments: five songs and three improvised jams creating thirty seven minutes of heavy, theremin-infused hardcore, metal and psychedelic rock.

These songs were written during some very chaotic times (both good and bad) in our lives and represent five friends attempting to make sense of that chaos with music and words.
As it became clear that the band was going to be geographically scattered, we managed to converge to Stuck On A Name studios one last time and record all the material we had, five songs recorded in a live setting, capturing a looser, more energetic side of the band’s sound and adding to this a recording of a series of improvised jams which had become an inherent part of the band’s live set.

NEW STUFF + SALE SECTION

Had a great time in Newport last night with EGS. Thanks to Welly for the gig. I scored a few copies of the Bullsheep Detector LP/DVD on red vinyl - this is a comp of early Welsh Punk bands, done by Antisociety records. I have also re-stocked the Artcore Terminal Decal LP/Zine.

At some point during the EGS set a glass of water fell into the LP box. Most of the records survived unscathed but a few unfortunately suffered slight water damage to the covers. Nothing too bad but they got a bit damp and crinkly at the bottom. So I'm reducing the prices on these records to reflect this. Vinyl is all fine.

SALE SECTION - COVERS HAVE SLIGHT WATER DAMAGE
AGNOSY LP £6
CRY HAVOC LP £6
HORROR LP £4 (White vinyl)
BACCHUS LP £6
TRENCHER LP £5
BLANK STARE LP £5
CLONE COMP I £5

Grab bargain!

Also DITW LP's should finally be here next week.

Tuesday, 26 June 2012

ETA for DITW vinyl is 2nd July. Here's a couple more early reviews:
