DOOM/SLUDGE-METAL. 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.
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.
idolum (2013/SUPERNATURAL CAT)
DOOM-METAL. "idolum" was the 4th album from UFOMAMMUT. Originally released on vinyl as a mega limited edition available only through the bands website in 2008. "idolum" was seen as a new chapter in the sonic adventure of UFOMAMMUT. Presenting a sensible evolution in the sound and in the structure of the songs: dark atmospheres, simple and mastodontic song frameworks, a different idea of psychedelic rock. "idolum" is a latin word meaning "ghost" and "idea" at the same time, representing the massive and hidden presence as the main concepts of the album. Now finally repressed on black vinyl with gatefold-sleeve.
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/SUPERNATURAL CAT)
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!
la larga sombra del punk (2009/LA VIDA ES UN MUS)
PUNK-ROCK. ULTIMO RESORTE were the bridge between the very 1st Spanish punk generation and the 1st hardcore wave. During their 5 years of existence (1979-1984) they only managed to record a demo, and 2 impossible to find records. A self-titled 7 track 7" 7" and "una causa sin fondo" a 5 track MLP. "la larga sombra del punk" compiles both those records plus a 16 pages booklet with a long interview with the band and tons of pictures and fanzine clippings. Musically they lay in between the most aggressive parts of VICE SQUAD, DISCHARGE, ELECTRIC DEADS or even SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES. This band helped putting Spain in the international punk map back in the day.
brick rain (2009/WELFARE)
HARDCORE. ULTRA VIOLENCE were part of the New York hardcore scene from 1981 to 1987 and have decided to come back stronger than ever. This CD contains 10 tracks new to 2009 including a few old songs re-recorded as well as 12 old tracks from the '80s taken from vinyl and cassette compilations from that time - a total of 22 tracks.
HARDCORE. At long last, after a full 3 years of setbacks and catastrophes, here is the complete discography of recordings by the fastest, fiercest, most feral, and most finnish band in the history of destructive anarchist blastbeat hardcore, ÜMLAUT. This discography features all 38 of their recorded songs and includes an 80 page book collecting lyrics, incendiary liner notes and other nonsense and debauchery. For the record, ÜMLAUT, were the mortal enemies of CATHARSIS while neither band ever encountered each other, ÜMLAUT were known to burn down squats in order to destroy those bourgeois imposters CATHARSIS.
UNA BESTIA INCONTROLABLE
observant com el mon es destrueix (2013/LA VIDA ES UN MAS)
HARDCORE. Barcelona's UNA BÈSTIA INCONTROLABLE came out of nowhere a few months ago. Within a few weeks of their existence they had recorded a promising demo of experimental noisy hardcore, played a few shows and started working on their debut album. Barely 6 months later they give birth to "observant com el món es destrueix". A 9 track LP integrally sang in Catalan and with a psychedelic approach to their previous bands sound (GLAM, ATENTADO, DESTINO FINAL, INVASION, CROSTA amongst others). Their primative anthems of nature seeking dreams are distorted, repetitive and heavy at times. With their boots firmly stuck in hardcore based while keeping the overall sound free of any boundaries and styles. An explosion of hardcore between day dreaming of peace and nightmares of reality.
circa '77 (2003/THREE ONE G)
HARDCORE. Originally released on New Age Records in 1996, this was the final release this much lauded San Diego straight-edge hardcore group ever put out. This re-issue contains all new artwork and comes on clear vinyl. Members went on to play in SWING KIDS, KILL HOLIDAY, SOME GIRLS and OVER MY DEAD BODY.
