s/t (2005/SOUNDS OF SUBTERRANIA)
NEW-WAVE. Das Debut Album der Belgier aus Liege um eine ehmaliges Members der Crust-Punks von UNHINGED. Eigentlich erstaunlich, so eine Entwicklung vom Crust-Punk zum New Wave, dazu noch in der momentan sehr beliebten, modernen Form. Die Jungs machen ihre Sache hier schon sehr gut, mischen Garage Punk mit funkigem GANG OF FOUR Post-Punk, einer Prise New Yorker frueh-Punk/New Wave a la TALKING HEADS und der 'weirdness' von DEVO. Die Stimme erinnert dabei stellenweise an Ian Dury. Die Insgesamt 12 Songs sind die Songs durchgaengig tanzbar und stehen den Werken aehnlich gesinnten Kollegen aus den USA, wie RADIO 4 oder THE FAINT, oder aber den gerade gefeierten FRANZ FERDINAND in nichts nach. Die Verpackung ist auch sehr ansprechend auf retro getrimmt, ein sch”nes rosa Digi-Pack, sehr 80er like, genauso wie die Klamotten der im Inneren abgebildeten Herren.
Sweat and glitter (2007/SOUNDS OF SUBTERRANIA)
POST-PUNK/NEW-WAVE. TWO-STAR HOTEL released there second album-"Sweat & Glitter" more dance, more disco, more postpunk stand on the flags!
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-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!
