Hailing from Stockholm, This Gift is a Curse play a combination of hardcore and sludge with great influences from both the occult black metal-scene as well as drone soundscapes. Spanning from slow, epic sections to faster, energetic parts, the songs show a great diversity in both musicianship and creativity. Since the debut CDEP the band have played a lot of shows and done a number of tours in Scandinavia as well as Europe, meanwhile working on their debut full-length album. During the late summer and early fall of 2011 the band recorded what came to be “I, Guilt Bearer” at a secret location north of Stockholm. To be free from any time limit, they asked the producer Magnus Björk (who worked with bands like Meleeh and Children of Fall) to move his studio to this specific location so the band could work with the recording without boundaries and whenever they felt like. What you hear is a harsh, honest and straight forward sound combined with a solid core of musical- as well as dark blunt emotional depth.
Thurm is a brand new band with with (ex-) members of ANTEATER and AMBER. This 12"-vinyl record is the first record from them. You will get epic, brutal and apocalyptic music which will blast you right away. Black Metal meets Hardcore. For fans of RORCAL, HEXIS, CELESTE etc...
Hell yes. Here's the new Titan LP. Over two years in the making, Burn features ten new songs from Titan. Titan is a metallic post hardcore, sludge, and metal band from Toronto, Canada. Titan draws influences from bands such as Union Of Uranus and His Hero is Gone and merge them with an Isis type of drone. Burn is Titan's latest release and should please any fan of heavy music. Definitely a must for people who enjoy bands like Cursed, Tragedy, and slower doom bands such as Isis...... Highly recommended!
Toronto, Ontario's aptly named TITAN puts the listener in a stranglehold from the 1st seething instance of feedback and doesn't relent until the very last jack-hammer of the bass drum has finished. TITAN are a blitzkrieg of vicious guitar accented by a commanding rhythm section and laced throughout with the ferocity of the lead vocalist. Quoting influences such as the early material of doom pioneers NEUROSIS, Canadian hardcore legends URANUS and metal/hardcore masters CONVERGE, TITAN has managed to create something powerful, extreme and ultimately unique. The allure of TITAN's immense and brutal sound is once more present in their newest full-length called "colossus" - their best recorded stuff so far! Housed in an eyecatching gatefold cover!
Warmer Months makes for a viscerally heavy listen and is an absolute must listen for people who enjoy bands like Cursed, Tragedy, and slower doom bands such as Northless, Deafheaven, and The Alaskan. Highly recommended! Enjoy!
Limited edition vinyl pressing (translucent yellow) of Warmer Months, released for TITAN's European tour in July 2012. Only 200 copies pressed.

Transatlantic Rat's Atoms music feels somehow weird. Twisted and heavy groovy PsychDoom from two thirds of Ufo Gestapo (RIP). Occasional sax, clarinet, harp and keyboards give their side of the split a slight jazzy dissonant feeling. It rises from the heavy rocking ground to some spacy, but dirty and drony feel, and then again rocks and waves one heavy like being in a space capsule, where history and phrases flow by and mean something nothing. Second songs name "Rise Reverse in the Middle of Nowhere" speaks this well. Warm and distantly cold the same time.
BirdEye have gently and humbly taken the b-side. But this is none other than Edgy Burning Witch's new band. Evil and psychedelic in its own inimitable way. The music is organic but noisy. Is this Doom with Ambient parts? Whatever. The heavy songs splay soundscapes of trippy mental states (song title "Hivemind" points in that direction), that appear pathological and disturbing but are cleansing. An archaic and mediatative approach to that style of music that hovers above things, because the band knows its game well.
On top of all that is a really beautiful and fitting artwork from Jason Wagoner on brown natural cardboard.
Sickness In' is the third album from Portland's most wretched, Trees. The band presents a two-song assault, each one roughly fifteen minutes in length, each a slowly rotting heap of droning slow-motion deathdoom riffs decomposing into clouds of black amplifier hum, high shrieking voices and tortured screams drifting against the glacial roar of smoking amp stacks and short-circuiting hardware. Where the previous album had Trees employing some interesting rhythmic chaos and longer stretches of ambient filth, this time around the band drops some of their most leaden, majestic riffs yet into their slow-mo filthstorm, massive saurian doom riffs slipping WAY out of the confines of 'groove' and deep into rumbling fields of charred ritualistic chanting and almost Abruptum-like states of psychotic noise.
After some split lp’s and ep’s here comes the first full length record of this technical grind band from Glauchau/Germany. Although everything is colored it’s a dark and evil record with some surprises.
debut 12"LP of dark hardcore / stoner inspirated by Entombed, Disfear or Coliseum bands from HellBrno feat. ex/current members of MORE BAD NEWS, EMA CAMELIA, GOSPEL OF THE FUTURE and SPACE TO BEING bands. They're coming to destroy your ears by six brand-new tracks mastered at Jámor studio by Ondra Ježek.
