NEGATIVE VORTEX - Tomb Absolute - Out Now On Tape

Tomb Absolute is the debut recording of Oakland’s Negative Vortex, a quartet bent on bringing back the old sounds of death and offering tribute to the ancient gods of 90’s metal. This pro tape includes four songs of turgid arrangements, guttural emissions and caveman drumming. Think of the primitive parameters in which death metal was born and thrived; technique took a backseat while deviant ideas and youthful enthusiasm was enough to launch a new metal subgenre.

Starting up with that concept, Negative Vortex offer up a raw concoction that is pure visceras and deafening power. Here thick riffs conflict and surge like a malicious force that resists receding, drums batter frenetically underneath and menacing vocals threaten to swallow it all. 

Limited to 200 Copies

DEVILSPIT - Grim, Hateful and Drunk - Out Now On Tape

Second recording from Brittany's bastard son Korpserizer. Nine tracks of satanic debauchery that go the distance within hard underground styles; from blackened punk to post punk with gothic overtones. 

Sonically, it is quite the stretch from the in your face days of the 2014 self-titled demo and as such, Grim, Hateful and Drunk sees this sicko streamlining his songwriting in favor of a more expansive approach. At its core though, this is the same ol' Devilspit; grim, hateful and drunk.

ALUCARDA - Raw Howls - Out Now On Tape

Raw Howls is the first full-length from Danish fuzz doom rock trio Alucarda and it follows their crunchy and raunchy D.F.F.L. demo from 2013. Highly reminiscent of pre-Die Screaming era Satan's Satyrs, Alucarda promised to go even rawer than on their first recording and have delivered a collection of songs that swing with gusto and insalubrious cockiness. To the max on the fuzz and the bizarre, Alucarda worship 70's bad acid culture and reminisce on that dead generation that abandoned their careless everything goes ways in favor of baby booming and suburban mortgages. Their lyrics speak with total abandon of their taste for vice and the macabre and their music blasts away, via deranged screaming and lo fi doomy garage rock, a bygone era of damaged thinking and total hopelessness.

HUMAN BODIES - No Life - Out Now On Tape

Trio Human Bodies hail from Boston, Massachusetts and with No Life have crafted some of the gnarliest black metal punk the American scene has seen. 

Their 2013 demo was hysterical and fucking short, at a little over 7 minutes, this four song self-released tape packed bile, rage and despair like few. Their riffs could cut through titanium and the vocals were blistering toxic spit that could give a good fuck to your eardrums. Well, No Life picks up were Demo MMXIII left off, though this time around a far more professional sound let's you hear Human Bodies' rawness in their pure conceived state.

THE HYLE - Demo Out Now On CALIGARI RECORDS

The Hyle hail from Denmark and this 4-song demo introduces their sublime doom rock to audiences that are more used to bestial vulgarity, chauvinistic rock and roll, raunchy thrash metal, generic metal ov death and cheesy heavy metal than they are to swift arrangements and expansive guitars, clean vocals elucidating dark and curiously morbid lyrics and paused drumming and subjugated bass playing. Listen to The Hyle and let your perception get the message; their unnerving passivity reveals something insalubrious lurking beneath. 

4 songs and almost thirty minutes of music, it is all it takes for The Hyle to turn their insides out...

SKELETHAL - Interstellar Knowledge of the Purple Entity - Out Now

Killer French death metal duo Skelethal are back with their second EP in less than a year and what a difference just a few months make. While they floored us then with their crudity embezzling complex arrangements and sucker-punching riffs, now Interstellar Knowledge of the Purple Entity elaborates even further with a surprising combination of filthy riffage and guttural vocals and a sense of musicality that seems to have been lost in these times of retarded bestiality. 

Interstellar Knowledge of the Purple Entity is intelligent by design and it contains five cuts, one of which is an intro and the last of which is a Carnage cover.

BUNKER 66 - 4 Recordings Out On Two Tapes

Call them traditionalists or old school but Italian black thrash horde Bunker 66 are uncharacteristically high-quality and as lethal as any of the classics that pushed the envelop to new levels of speed and aggressiveness. Since their formation in 2007, this trio from Messina, Sicily has consistently delivered raw recordings packed with steamrolling riffs, cannon-like drumming, throbbing basslines and vocals that will have you making double takes while maintaining a solid identity and bringing to mind the great personalities of the underground days of yore. 

Now, for the first time on tape, Caligari Records is proud to release their first four releases in two tapes. 

First up is Out of the Bunker, their introduction to metalheads worldwide. Released in 2009 and packing six cuts of punked out thashy blackness, Out of the Bunker delivers rambunctious energy like few other recordings from these times and spills awesome riffs galore. This auspicious recording was followed by the scorching aural spectacle that is Alive & Melting, a live recording released in 2011 by Cargo Records after Fenriz chose Bunker 66 as his Band of the Week. The Caligari Records tape will include both recordings in their totality. 


Infernö Interceptörs is the first Bunker 66 full-length and was unleashed upon the unsuspecting metal creeps in 2012 by High Roller Records. Stylistically, it continues in their speedy tradition of tearing shit up with a plethora of riffs so good they should be taught in schools in first world nations. The last four tracks available for your pleasure come from their split with Barbarian and includes a swifty cover ( "Psychopharmax Convulsions") of the obscure Italian band Convulsed.

Bunker 66 hail from Messina, Italy and formed in 2007.
