Only rock & roll can save us (2007/IMMORTAL)
POST-ROCK/EMO. The rock and roll that takes on TYLER READ's name comes in gigantic, guitar drenched doses and has been simmering in the backyard of five Louisiana natives for the last three years. On their debut album "Only rock & roll can save us" the band's sound boils over into 11 tracks of fast paced rock spiked with soaring back up vocals, frantic guitar solos and contagious melodies. With their plan for resurrecting rock and roll focused into a full-length album, TYLER READ's ready to take their blend of staggering guitar licks, adventurous songwriting and earth-shaking vocals to as many people as possible. Their ambitions beg the final question: what will it take to break TYLER READ? "Only rock & roll can save us" was produced by Elvis Baskette (Incubus, Chevelle).
SXE-HARDCORE. xTYRANTx has been one of the leading underground straight-edge bands for many years now. This MCD is finally ready to deliver to their loyal fans. Real hardcore from Detroit - definitely their best material to date.
prepare for devastation (2009/EULOGY)
SXE-HARDCORE. After many years of hard work, the band signed to Eulogy Recordings for a re-release of "prepare for devastation". xTYRANTx continue to pummel listeners with heavy, militant straight-edge fueled metallic hardcore with musical nods to INTEGRITY and HATEBREED. Guest vocals on this record come courtesy of Karl of EARTH CRISIS. In an increasingly glamorized and commercialized hardcore scene, where bands would rather parade around on stage like David Bowie instead of confronting the morally bankrupt society that we live in, xTYRANTx will be a welcome despot to the angry youth that still remain.
HARDCORE-PUNK. This is the debut 7" by ex-members of DEAMON SYSTEM-13, REGULATIONS, VICIOUS and other great Swedish hardcore bands. It will come as no surprise to those familiar with the aforementioned bands that U.X. VILEHEADS play fast US influenced hardcore with a specific attention being paid to early Dischord titles.
catch 22 (2010/SORRY STATE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Featuring former/current members of bands like INSTÄNGD, TRISTESS and REGULATIONS, you know that these guys know their way around a classic-sounding hardcore-punk tune and they drop 4 ragers on this little slab. It's rare to hear punk-rock that is as raging as it is catchy, but this 7" absolutely fits the bill, providing the perfect soundtrack to your next violent circle pit.
hardcore 11 (2011/SORRY STATE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. U.X. VILEHEADS is the latest in the line of great bands coming out of Sweden. After releasing 2 succesful 7"s it was time to release a full-lenght. The record is a 12 song attack of relentless hardcore-punk in the vein of OFFENDERS and TOXIC REASONS with a hint of MINOR THREAT. Members played in nearly every swedish band from the last decade: REGULATIONS, TRISTESS, INSTÄNGD, DS-13, INVASIONEN, VICIOUS, LOST PATROL BAND, DÖDSDÖMD and a million more.
DOOM/SLUDGE. UFO GESTAPO's 3rd opus "grandemissair" is out and it is again their own outer space and hypnotic brew of sludge and harcdorish outbursts, just driven to a higher level. A numb and unbearable dwelling within the milkstreet, but then again there is such vehemence, an intoxication of moods is inevitable. As well the vocals have improved to a greater style: here comes some cleaner tone of despair. The screw of weirdness has been driven even deeper, beware the keyboards! Leave this trip cleansed but feeling uncomfortable. Comes in a glossy sleeve plus inlay.
DOOM/SLUDGE. This is the vinyl version of the 1st UFO GESTAPO CD that came back in the days on Calculon Records. This 1st part of the trilogy has more of the cosmic Korg-synths but still extra desperate vocals and violent as a horde of angry aliens devastating your flat. Again the music dwells between doom, sludge and hardcore; gloomy slow parts alternate with short outbursts of fast hardcore parts. This was of course worth a vinyl edition and comes with a great silkscreened real LP 350gr cardboard jacket, completely new artwork. Limited edition of 500 copies.
eve (2011/SUPERNATURAL CAT)
DOOM-METAL. "eve" is the 5th official album by Italy's most cerebral and mammoth doom act UFOMMAMUT. The album - comprised of one 45min. atmospheric track, divided into 5 distinct movements. "eve" is a new step in the sonic adventure of UFOMAMMUT - another level in the band's research. UFOMAMMUT's status as one of the most potent, powerful and artistic contemporary doom artists in existence continues to captivate the masses, and the band's worldwide grasp grows wider with each release. "eve" is an undeniably infectious and utterly devastating piece of doom-metal art that shall surely be a major player.
lucifer songs (2012/SUPERNATURAL CAT)
DOOM-METAL. After amazing both public and critics with 2 seminal albums which manage to combine the violence of NEUROSIS with the psychedelia of the more visionary PINK FLOYD, UFOMAMMUT originally released this LP back in 2006. The flaming spatial ridings which made their 2nd full-length "snailking" remain as an indelible brand, but alongside we find a development of new soundscapes made up of sinister atmospheres and gloomy sounds of vintage electronics. Imagine an insane and crazy version of MOGWAI or SIGUR ROS with gritty, fullbodied guitarwork: the result is the UFOMAMMUT. A powerful wall of sound while at the same time untrinsically dreaming, able to hypnotize and spellbind the listener with obsessive dilatations approaching drone music.
oro - opus alter (2012/SUPERNATURAL CAT)
DOOM-METAL. "oro" is the title for UFOMAMMUT's latest work, divided into 2 separate pieces. UFOMAMMUT, Italian sorcerers of supernatural and obliterating doom, have completed their 6th full-length. As with all previous UFOMAMMUT albums, the concepts behind "oro" are expansive and multi-faceted. Although "oro's" 2 chapters will be released months apart from each other, they must be considered as a single track in which the musical themes and the sounds appear and reappear, mutate and evolve, progressively culminating in the crushing final movement. The vinyl versions of both chapters will be handled directly by Malleus's own label Supernatural Cat Records, who were responsible for the release of all of the band's previous material.
oro - opus premium (2012/SUPERNATURALCAT)
DOOM-METAL. "oro" is the title for UFOMAMMUT's latest work, divided into 10 massive movements overall which is now confirmed to be delivered in 2 separate pieces. The vinyl versions of both chapters will be handled directly by UFOMAMMUT's own label Supernatural Cat Records. As with all previous UFOMAMMUT albums, the concepts behind "oro" are expansive and multi-faceted, mutating the Italian palindrome. Comes with an eyecatching gatedfold-cover.
HARDCORE. These born again fellas from a scene before (members of UNSEEN FORCE, HONOR ROLE and JUDGE DREDD) thrash through 6 ripping tracks of classic early '80s hardcore. Good production and very good musicianship throughout this little platter here. Definetly a must have for fans of stuff like DIE KREUZEN, ARTICLES OF FAITH and old, classic Richmond hardcore. Comes with reversible cover for the picky folk.
taste (2012/MIND MELT ENTERPRISES)
HARDCORE-PUNK. New Jersey's own UGLY PARTS, who feature members of SEASICK and BIBLE THUMPER, have been hard at work traveling up and down the East-Coast bringing a dark, deranged brand of hardcore-punk that's described by the label as Rollins singing for a surfier BLÀST.
ULTIMATE BLOWUP / KALI
split (2011/IDONEUM BELLO)
POWER-VIOLENCE. This is raging fastcore from 2 parts of the world, that couldn't be more far away from each other. ULTIMATE BLOWUP from Turkey with 8 tracks of maniac power-violence with a similar stereo voice work to SPAZZ and kinda earsmashing soundwall, we all love INFEST for. KALI from Canada with a similar style, super fast thrashcore smashers with a completely mad singer. Thrash to the max, play fast, die slow!
