The ritual dark ambient shaman returns with a meditative-trance double album with pronounced tribal elements. Five tracks are spread across both discs united by a common meaning. “When evil and violence fill the world, when people fall into barbarism and forget about virtue, spiritual degradation occurs – the era of Kali-yuga comes. Realizing the inevitability of the end and the subsequent beginning, a person finds peace.” Again, limited to 108 hand-numbered copies with naturally aged material and soft Indian incense…

New album by this historic death industrial / dark ambient entity. Undoubtedly a monumental work, it lauds fire as the force which destroys the obsolete and creates new life in its place. “Fire is a guide between the Earth and the Sky – its flames roar, devour, incinerate and purify. The sounds of the flame awaken fear and hope in the soul, inspire and drive away. Raising its tongues up like hands, the fire prays for human sins and points out the only right way…”

Whilst the quartet possesses a wealth of experience in the black & death metal underground, their vision is built upon a firm foundation of heavy metal painted in a vibrant array of occult shades. Its gait is almost casual, even swinging, but its portent is most ominous. Indeed, the heft is meted out with exacting clarity. The band’s less-is-more approach is both poetic and liberating, enflaming the senses by leaving everything to the imagination. As those doors of perception are patiently pushed open by HEAD OF THE DEMON, this new opus takes deeper, darker root within the subconscious…

Where it all began! Like Thunderstorm, their thrust back then was towards traditional spheres of Doom rather than the out and out Italian Dark Sound or the unusual band they became. An intriguing reminder of their eerie monastic roots with new artwork and a bonus live song…

Recorded when Antonio was only 15 years old, these are his rudimentary first steps in expressing the supernatural through the medium of music. Largely based around synths with very little Heavy Metal riffing, this early exploration of the Italian Dark Sound has more in common with early Antonious Rex than Death SS and Paul Chain Violet Theatre. An intriguing document shared for the very first time with the wider public…

This eccentric trio from Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia sport an equally eccentric name. Yes, The Green Uncle and the Black Hole Surfers offer up a fuzzed out, punked up take on Space Rock complete with vocals buried deep in effects and infectious melodic synths. It might sound strange on paper. But you really need to hear how great it is! Limited to 50 copies on luminous green shells…

The Cypriot titans return with another weighty platter of barbaric yet technical steel. Rooted in the US tradition of Omen, Jag Panzer, Slauter Xstroyes and Cauldron Born, expect another nine slices capable of cleaving heads from shoulders…

Originally released in 1986, this was Graeme Revell’s first truly solo project. He was in a period of transition, somewhere between the industrial noise of the early years and his later award-winning soundtrack work. On the day before this was first released, this style of music, now ubiquitous (especially in soundtracks), did not exist. The track “In Flagrante Delicto” (mastered as originally intended here) was later used by Revell for his work on the soundtrack for the 1989 film “Dead Calm”, which won him Best Original Score from the Australian Film Institute. Unavailable in any format since Mute’s 1992 CD edition, this release comes with new artwork by Abby Helasdottir and is remastered by Martin Bowes (The Cage).It also features new liner notes from Graeme Revell, 2019.

Gloomy. Dark. Gothic. A slow journey towards introspection.

Pressed way back in 1985, the original MLP is a holy grail amongst collectors. Not for scarcity alone, it has a big ’80s appeal with plenty of lead breaks and strong vocal presence. Both guitarists lend their weight in the choruses too! This revamped edition has been augmented by two cuts from Chicago Metal Compilations from the same era plus two previously unreleased songs. A four page insert is also included with new liner notes by founder and guitarist, John Dobbs, along with lyrics and photos.
