In September 2019, Norkh will release their first LP through Bleeding Heart Nihilist Productions – a celebration of true extreme underground metal in all its hellish facets in eight furious songs.
The band’s sound is influenced by the grimness of Darkthrone and Celtic Frost, the unleashed power of old school death metal riffs, and the rude aggression of pure thrash, which they manage to combine in a way that should make all modern retro posers weep. Lyrically, Norkh does not focus on any esoteric or religious bullshit either, but strictly on the natural born terror on this rotating ball of shit we call earth.
First full-length release of a promising band from Germany. Extremely atmospheric Black Metal that manages to combine the best of both worlds, the traditional and the modern, without sounding arbitrary or generic. Due to the slow pace and superficially simple song structures, they have a touch of still drastically underrated bands like Khold, although the vocals are a lot shriekier. Let′s also mention the great, fitting production by some Ultha dude.
"New Age Bay Area Thrash that makes you bang until your neck gets a six-pack! Pack your jacket, pick up your axe and follow us..." - Really says it all. No thrash band in Germany at the moment is more shred, more mosh, more bay-area and more fun than Exit Smashed.
Exit Smashed's sophomore full-length record "Between Death And Death" comes as a 12" black vinyl plus the CD-version of the album. The package contains a poster of the artwork (without text and logos) on one side and the lyrics and liner notes on the other side.
On their second album "disart brut: mausoleum", HERMANN offer 7 pieces that are generally rooted in black metal, incorporating various influences from doom, death and crust. While often vaguely compared to Darkthrone, Bethlehem or Totenmond for reference, HERMANN has certainly managed to establish a consistent individual band sound with an equally characteristic lyrical concept since the beginning. The album stays true to the style established on the debut. The general mood of the first recording is further refined, with the lyrics once again being presented in the German mother tongue. The separate pieces are each very diversified and unique, while still forming a coherent unit as an album. Through the interconnected introduction and fading out of the final song, the oevre is structurally embedded in an unsettling sonic framework. In between, sluggish, grinding parts meet frantic blastbeats, to be in turn dissolved by hammering staccato attacks. Extravagant accents, such as the use of an almost disintegrated accordion ("pervitin") or the HERMANN interpretation of a traditional Eastern European dirge ("die pauke vier mal"), adorn an across-the-board unconventional album, which, if not very typical for the genre in its free-spirited variety, is accordingly exciting and unpredictable.
Two new songs, which represent everything that embodies PESTLEGION in a nutshell: hypnotic tremolo riffing, demonic screams and storming blastbeats, somewhere between the grim aggression of Norwegian pioneer work and the precise fury of the Swedish trailblazers, with a dash of crude Finnish insanity. Nonetheless, PESTLEGION distinguish themselves from the bulk of the current and established domestic scene. Atmosphere is not achieved through endless repetition of simple motifs or obnoxious synth cues, but is based on versed songwriting and thought-out harmony. Despite all rawness, there′s always attention on melodies in tune with the distinctive message, to accomplish a catchy and coherent artwork. The whole is deliberately embedded in a sound design set for maximum noise and roughness, while still packing a clear modern punch.
In short: simply real, authentic black metal without compromises on an appealing technical level, which revives the true spirit while rejecting all modern post-metal conformity and imbecile political extremist provocation.
First LP by these metalpunks from Dresden, Germany. Fucked-up genre mix somewhere between sludge, punk and death′n′roll, with a brutal focus on ROCK′N′ROLL as defined by one Lemmy Kilmister. Simply a cool record that rejects definite labels.
FVNERAL FVKK bring the depravity back to a genre which is starving for more filth. Corrupting members of the German cult acts FÄULNIS and OPHIS, this new, rotten entity emerged from the pits of sodomy in Hamburg/Germany. Formed in early 2015, its sole purpose is to celebrate the sacral, angelic atmosphere of Epic Doom Metal… and then rape it all over. FVNERAL FVKK combine the pastoral beauty and solemnity of a cathedral (musically) with the infidelity and vileness of a cemetary prostitute (semantically), with lyrics that deal exclusively with the debauchery of the clergy and / or necrophilia in the name of god. His Holiness is a foul pervert, and this band serves as vessel of His demented will!
Heavy cardboard cover jacket with printed glossy inner sleeve with lyrics. Limited to 450, handnumbered, first 50 come with free logo patch printed on original priest garment cloth!
Sunshine & Lollipops are finally taking the next step after their debut 7" and the split-CD with WIGRID, with the release of their first full-length album, titled "Empty (Always Look On the Dull Side)". It contains 8 songs with a total playing time of 42:30min, mixed and mastered by Sebastian Braunreuther. LP comes with full color cover and colored inner sleeve with all lyrics and different artwork than the CD version.
12" LP from this band from East Berlin, limited to 333 hand-numbered copies. Awesome metallic hardcore/crust/d-beat with German and English lyrics by three shouters. Comes with free stickers and buttons!
Great 12" vinyl issue of the cult demos of one of the most influential and important early German punk bands, containing unreleased songs as well as early versions of classics from the debut album in surprisingly good sound, remastered by Wally himself. Includes inlay with all lyrics and original tape layout + poser download code.
Remaster of the first officiall album from 1991. To this date probably still the best record by the awesome Chaos-Z follow-up band. Discharge meets Joy Division with pleasantly negative lyrics. Quality inlay with all lyrics etc.
Album from 2001. Again of of their best. Despite the band′s alleged "experimentality", this is just great music somewhere between classic punk and goth rock, and a must for anybody who likes stuff like EA80. Includes glossy lyrics inlay.
Special vinyl edition of the cult last release by "Germany's last punk band", limited to 1000 copies! Words can't begin to describe the magic of the Sons, it can only be experienced. A true gem for connoisseurs!
After two split CDs finally a complete new album by the Russian harcore band in the same old-school vein as their previous releases. Includes 8 new original songs as well as 6 songs in collaboration with bands such as DEAD PONY RIDERS, STAGE BOTTLES, DISTEMPER, MOSCOW DEATH BRIGADE, DIETA and HAUSVABOT.
Compilation LP including the debut album ′Last War′ as well as the five songs from their split with DEVIL SHOOTS DEVIL. Old-school hardcore from the streets of Moscow. 18 raw, angry political songs against the Nazi terror in Russian cities, ecocide and animal abuse.
