DISTERROR - Catharsis - Out Now On Tape

Mexico's Disterror have come a long way since their 2011 Upcoming Warfare demo. While that and other early recordings do justice to their Dis-moniker by focusing on a violent dbeat sound, their first full-length Catharsis viciously incorporates black and heavy metal elements to their unruly sound. 

Catharsis is shaped by seven tracks of unrelenting riffage, negative lyricism and unhinged drumming. It is limited to 175 copies, pro tapes / pro covers.

HEAVYDEATH - Dark Phoenix Rising - Out Now On Tape

Nicklas Rudolfsson may just be the busiest man in underground metal. Not because of his diverse roster of bands (his CV includes Necrocurse, The Funeral Orchestra, Rapid Terror and others) but because over the past two years and since the formation of his trio HEAVYDEATH, this doom death dweller has managed to record and release no less than 7 demos, one Ep and a full-length. Now, hot on the heels of Eternal Sleepwalker, HEAVYDEATH is back with another full-length titled Dark Phoenix Rising. 

Comprised of five tracks and adding up to close to 40 minutes of low end music, Dark Phoenix Rising (with Jonah Backman completing this recording’s line up) once again displays the incisive signature sound of previous recordings; assertive and entrancing mid-tempos are shaped by a paused but punishing rhythmic foundation, while at times menacing and at others morose and clerical vocals hover over opaque and tenebrous guitars. If it wasn’t clear before, it is more than clear now, HEAVYDEATH have come to master their diosyncratic take on doom death metal.

JUPITERIAN - Aphotic - Out Now On Tape

History has taught us that a tropical metropolis like Sao Paulo, Brasil does not possess the right backdrop for creating imposing doom death metal, but leave it Jupiterian, a quartet formed in 2013, to crumble those preconceptions. 

Inspired by the likes of Winter, Paradise Lost and Anathema, Jupiterian craft hulking and lush metallic compositions and in Aphotic, their second recording, their music takes colossal shape as massive distortion pushes forward, drums rumble and echo like nearby explosions and monstruous guttural vocals articulate dark ill-fated tales. And yet despite the apparent bluntness of it all, there is plenty underneath waiting to be disinterred; nuanced and layered details, off-kilter passages and hidden compositions that give Aphotic a rather distinctive flavor. 

Aphotic was mixed and mastered by Mories (Gnaw Their Tongues) and it contains 4 new songs and a bonus track ("Drag Me to My Grave") that is pure old British guard worship. Over 42 minutes of music.

HEAVYDEATH - Dark Phoenix Rising - Coming Soon On Tape

Pro-print tape to be released August 25 2015 (limited 200 copies) by Caligari Records

Digital release to be released August 26 2015

Dark Phoenix Rising

I. Dead Trees
II. Bow Down
III. The Ember of the End
IV. From the Ashes
V. Dark Phoenix Rising

This recording session was done in June and mixed in July 2015. From the beginning it was only planned to record two songs (“Dead Trees” and “The Ember of the End”) but when we started to rehearse/recording, we felt to revisit an previously recorded song “Bow Down” that got a little more “epic” ending in this version. At the end of the recording blew the creative winds so we wrote and recorded two more songs (“From the Ashes” and “Dark Phoenix Rising”). To tie together the musical heavy adventure with the other three songs.

The recording is as previously recordings done under simple conditions with only a guitar, bass, drums and vocals. No frills or hocus pocus in the mix.
Unfortunately, Daniel Moilanen could not participate during the recording because of the missions with Katatonia. But we used our close friend Oldfor Suns who temporarily took care of the drumming.

Recorded in June 2015. Mixed and mastered by Johan Bäckman in July 2015.
Produced by Nicklas Rudolfsson and Johan Bäckman.
Music and lyrics by Nicklas Rudolfsson.

Nicklas Rudolfsson – electric guitar, vocals
Johan Bäckman – electric bass guitar
Oldfor Suns – drums (session)

GLOAM - Hex of Nine Heads - Out On Tape Now


Following a demo and an EP, Oakland's black metal quartet GLOAM deliver a vast sixty minute riff fest of dominant melodies and flawless musicianship called Hex of Nine Heads 

175 Copies 
Pro Tapes / Pro Covers 

Artwork by Barney Fried 

"With Hex of Nine Heads, Gloam has matured in that perfect way everyone hopes a band does between the “demo/EP” phase and their first full-length album. The almost standard, albeit passionately and precisely executed performance found on Vanquished and the preceding demo has been violently thrust into a more atypical, progressive realm. Weaving between the alarming and disjointed, which is very new territory for Gloam, to much more heavily voiced, borderline contemporary classically-inclined melodiousness, Hex of Nine Heads’s calculated approach definitely deserves a good pair of headphones (or just headphones in general) to fully appreciate its nuances. With the immediacy of a young Opeth, we find Gloam plowing through near-constant variations on ideas, utilizing a much more linear, non-structured approach to songwriting, never fully re-iterating a riff so much as rebuilding Solomon’s Temple again and again. For an hour-long album, it can definitely get strenuous without any sort of reference other than your watch, but the dense creativity is evidence of exceedingly strong musicianship."

HADIT- Introspective Contemplation of the Microcosmus - Out Now On Tape

Expect no gazing from Italian duo Hadit. Instead, these men from Varese craft abstract and absolutely merciless black death metal. In their twisted minds; the sky, the stars, space and the universe are either the darkest of places or the infinite black hole that constantly threatens to swallow it all and so their music is not only inspired by otherworldly and unreachable dwellings but is a reflection of the gravitational pull, the awful outcomes and the imminent severity of their mental trips. 

Introspective Contemplation of the Microcosmus is their second recording and it contains four songs that total over 24 minutes.

TAPHOS NOMOS - West of Everything Lies Death - Out On MC

The late 90’s was that weird time span by which most classic death metal mongers had either ran out of steam or were making desperate attempts at remaining relevant via weird experimentations. Pittsburgh's death doom quartet Taphos Nomos are just weird enough to fit those strange days, except their lengthy compositions flow with that rare inventiveness reserved for bands that transcend time and genres. In West of Everything Lies Death, their first recording, Taphos Nomos delivers three impactful tracks that perfectly encapsulate the dark and morbid spirit of pure death and doom.

COFFIN HAZE - Rehearsal Ritual I - Out Now On Tape

Tonight doubt will come into the minds of the trve and narrow, as they will be challenged by sounds unforeseen, songs that differ from the typical resonance they choose to adhere to. The sounds of their loyalty this is not, but it’s bred from the same darkness and morbid desire to fuck and lust. To be filed under satanic surf rock ov death or bizarre rockabilly from the low hells. Bugger off, pay attention, listen and don’t let music make you a tight twat. 

Limited to 80 copies

ABJVRATION - The Unquenchable Pyre - Out Now On Tape

The phrase ‘death metal from the pits’ takes new meaning upon one listen to ABJVRATION’s abrasive debut EP The Unquenchable Pyre. Enriched by organic production values and enhanced by vast and rich tonalities, The Unquenchable Pyre is a layered work of massive power. Its five carefully crafted cuts envelop the listener in a weird voyage of distress and pessimism and as it advances ABJVRATION finds new ways to entrance the listener via excruciatingly heavy doom passages, distorted and otherworldly voices, spare samples and a death metal narrative that is evolving and obscure. 

ABJVRATION is a French band comprised by ex-members of Huata and Funeralium. This is their first recording.
