MENTAT (spa) "amarillo abisal"
Six length songs of instrumental doom. The sound is fairly difficult to pin down but they have a strong experimental side to their sludge, doom and post hardcore sound.
Mostly screamed vocals are given the perfect counterpoint by some beautiful ambient sections.
Recorded and mixed by Chus G. Navajas at Rockaway Studios, Castellón, in August 2008. Mastered by Juan Hidalgo at Mastertips, Madrid.
5 euros (Boue)

Entre funk atypique et harsh noise Haute Définition. Seconde édition.
8 euros (Misanthropic Agenda)
MERZBOW & Z'EV (jpn/usa) "spiral right spiral left" CD
It's a journey through over an hour of unforgiving sound walls, without a single moment of relief or calm, one that needs to be experienced in its full extent, detached from the external world.
Recommended to the cultists of illustrious industrial collaborations, and to the dedicated followers of Merzbow's and Z'EV's unstoppably growing discographies.
Frightening, dark ambient noise in a special textured card digisleeve.
8 euros (Cold spring)
METH DRINKER (nz) "oil" LP out of stock
There are two kinds of sludge metal. There’s the one that evokes a certain Southern charm with its whiskey sippin, ’thunderclouds-a-gathering, sweaty clubs and down-home big fat riffs.
And then there’s the other type - the obnoxious one. The one that conjures up images of broken glass, rubbish-strewn wastelands, dirty needles, infected leg sores, rotting teeth and
very unhealthy co-dependent relationships. Meth Drinker plays the latter kind. Real well. Six Noises.
Highly recommended !
15 euros (Raw birth)
MONDKOPF (fra) "they fall, but you don't" LP
"Hades" avait mis le toulousain Mondkopf sur la voie d’un dark techno industriel torturé et très atmosphérique.
Qui a prêté l’attention qu’il méritait à ce disque ne sera donc pas désarçonné à l’écoute de ce cinquième album. Car si les 6 titres qui le composent
sont des déclinaisons d’un même thème ayant pour titre "Vivere" ("Vivre" en italien), rien ici n’incite à la célébration. Ou peut-être la joie d’être toujours en vie ?
13 euros (In paradisum)
MY OWN LIES (ger) "sounds like
an accident" EP
2 euros (Hombre lobo)
NARCOSIS (uk) "heart slows down"
The majority of the first side is crazy fast grindcore that brings in elements of bands like Disrupt, Phobia and Brutal Truth.
Vicious rhythm changes and raging vocals kick the listener down a path of breathless destruction. This five piece is from England and contains the singer from Hard To Swallow.
The other side is one long drawn out crushing / sludgy metal song.
5 euros (Balowski)
NECROFILIA (ita) "sein zum tode"
In the early nineties, Slaughter Productions released two masterpieces of Atrax Morgue as Necro-sintesi and Necrophiliac Experience split with Lunus,
noise project of Devis Granziera, a very close friend of Marco Corbelli. This partnership is only the prelude to what will happen a few years later.
In 1996 Marco
Corbelli and Devis Granziera decided to resume a bizarre project called Nekrophilia. After two years of work, changing
the name of the project in Necrofilia,
comes out on tape again for Slaughter Productions the result of their collaboration with the title of ‘’Sein Zum Tode’’.
Harsh tones that cut through the air with manic male agonizing voice moving into a lyrical attack. Each track contain hypnotic storm of sounds with dense noise pattern.
Reprinted for the first time in LP, tracks were remastered
from the original tape and the record has been pressed on 140 gr black
vinyl with black label and black inner sleeve.
Silkscreen on black cardboard in an edition of 199 copies.
18 euros (Urashima)
FALLIBILISTHORSTAR (swe) "harlum" CD
Cd version of "hålrum" runs about 6 minutes longer than the LP and presents the work in its uninterupted entirety.
Beautiful career-spanning collection of outside musical thought from this swedish sound-collective, with two sides of collaged pieces that span clattering sounds-of-the-junkyard noise improvisations.
The bells of ghost ships long lost to the tide,
beautiful gregorian / choral tones, fractured jump-cuts that bring to
With Wound "Spiral
and "Salt Marie Celeste".
Recorded between 2001-2004, this makes for some beautiful deep-listening and should suit fans of early Ghost, Nurse With Wound, Asmus Tietchens, Einsturzende Neubauten,
The New Blockaders, David Jackman, Keiji Haino ...
Not sealed, carefully stored.
7 euros (Snse)
OHM (swe) "the black river"
Ohm is an instrumental four-piece (feat' two members from The Jam Session), self described as ''timeless electronica''.
Think heavy progressive rock from the 70´s intersecting with modern electronica. A bit like a soundtrack to a fantasymovie from the 80´s.
Sleeve shows signs of wear.
3 euros (Release the bats)
OM (usa) "god is good" LP out of stock
Theologians still can't fully agree, but you're sure to believe after vibrating along with "god is good".

OPEN TOMB / METH DRINKER (nz) LP

2007 Camp Blood live grumble located somewhere between Midwestern heavy bummer (David Reed of Luasa Raelon / Envenomist) and West Coast bad attitude (Phil Blankenship

QUILL / GEORGE BITCH JR (jpn/fra) "ride the lightning" EP
Sleeve show some signs of wear, 7"inch sleeping for years in the mailorder. PV style !
Sleeve shows lights signs of wear.
4 euros (Ninja tuning / I study / Beer is not drink)
Moving away from the sample-based strategies that
characterised their early work, Joe Andrews and Tom Halstead have looked
increasingly to live instrumentation for their first full-length work,
mounting intensive recording sessions for percussion, guitar and strings before painstakingly piecing the album together at their home studio.
The gothic and industrial signifiers in their music remain, but more submerged and oblique than ever - no less pronounced as influences than jungle's rhythmic dynamism and doom metal's
oppressive weight or aspects of techno, modern composition and dub.
25 euros (Blackest ever black)
RAMMER (can) "incinerator and krusher" CD
Toronto, Canada's answer to the recent rash of posers claiming to be the return of metal.
Full on metal which calls back to the days of Kreator, Destruction and all those other german's that knew how to thrash and destroy. Speed trash metal buddy.
7 euros (Shifty)
REGULATIONS (swe) "different needs" EP
Four new tracks for 2007 from Regulations. An outstanding mix of the sounds of late 70's Swedish punk with the early LA scene.
Top notch material from one of the best hc punk bands around these last years. Dark introspective lyrics, with the exception of "new ways" which decries the recent election
of a conservative government in Sweden "what happened to my say ?"
4 euros (Havoc)
RUDIMENTARY PENI (uk) "cacophony" LP out of stock
30 tracks, 43 minutes. Remastered version of the outsider punks’ highly acclaimed 1988 album, unavailable on vinyl for 15 years. Remastered from the original analogue tapes.
All original artwork presented in fine detail. Vinyl edition comprises 180g black vinyl, gatefold sleeve, poster, 8 page full size lyric booklet and dwnld card.
"Cacophony'' was originally released in 1988, after a lengthy hiatus following the "Death Church" album in '83.
The album's subject matter repeatedly references the life of New England horror writer and misanthrope H.P. Lovecraft, and is hailed as a classic benchmark of outsider punk.
Considered by many to be the band's masterwork, as well as one of the most visionary and radical works in the history of British punk.
25 euros (Southern)
RUDIMENTARY PENI (uk) "archaic" LP
12 tracks, 16 minutes. Remastered and reissued version on 180 gram vinyl. Limited white vinyl in stock. Comes with dwnld code, six two-sided art cards, and bonus poster.
"Archaic" deals more with personal experience than
the majority of the bands previous releases. The twelve songs on the
album cover a variety of, shall we say, darker topics including mortality,
despair, cremation, and the closing of the British national health service.
The brevity of the lyrics (often a single line) is matched by the pummeling harshness of the guitar riffs, which hammer away as if pouring salt into an open wound.
23 euros (Southern)
