Summit digi CD
In March of 2008 Gilead Media released the debut full-length, Tyrant, by Baton Rouge, LA doom band Thou. Over the past two and a half years the band has played over 150 shows, including multiple national tours throughout the entire US. They've also managed to release a split, ep, cassette or LP (their catalog now numbering nearly 20 releases) on just about every label worth their weight in a pallet of vinyl... from Southern Lord and Robotic Empire to Halo of Flies, Vendetta and Perpetual Motion Machine, Init, among many, many more. Without a single record falling below their high standard of quality. I think this is due in part to this basic fact: Thou are a "punk rock" doom band. They've somehow combined the ethics of true DIY punk, and the sound of sludging, droning doom to breath life into a creative entity that is completely passionate, they're entirely dedicated to what they do. They don't write their music and lyrics to serve any one scene or genre, I don't even like labeling them as doom, as it isn't fitting in and of itself. THOU draws so drastically on so many different influences, influences that find their ways through their songs in a myriad of ways. These are the things that set this band apart in a world where many try to emulate honest heavy music. Their lyrics are politically and ethically charged, their riffs defy simple genre classification, and SUMMIT showcases the band at their most progressive, melodic and diverse. All the while retaining their signature style of apocalyptically crushing metal. In the time since I enthusiastically exchanged my first emails with them in late 2007 Thou has grown from an up and coming band in heavy music, to a band that is now primed to define the future of what slow and heavy music may become. "Summit" contains six songs, and runs 52 minutes." Adam/Gilead Media
The Masters of Devil Metal Death with their latest EP for February 2010 simply dubbed "Black" in reference to the visual aesthetic of the peculiar packaging.

Harbinger blasts out its anthemic speed metal with all of the zeal and wildness that's missing from today's world. An unstoppable force of metal madness! Featuring the vocals of Matt War (Wastelander), this disc is guaranteed to make metal hearts explode.
Dog Magic CD
Atlanta, GA's lords of heaviness are back with their debut full-length album, "Dog Magic"! This record takes a massive evolutionary step in the Zoroasters sound, incorporating numerous foreign-to-most-doom metal elements that make this record truely stand out as a monument for the genre. The variation from groove-laden jams to epic sloooooow doom intermingled with psychedelic spacey moog ambience is outstanding and keeps the record very interesting all around. Anticipate nothing less than a 65+ minute voyage into ultra low-end rockin' doom heaviness that will leave you floored and begging for more!
The return of Lord Imperial, best known for his duties as Krieg's frontman for the last ten years, is upon us. Appearing only this time as a drummer, vocalist and bassist joined by J.

Teach Your Children How To Think, Not What To Think CD
It has been a while since we heard new tunes by the band branded by The Silent Ballet as “one of the shining new lights of the UK post-rock scene”. The EP contains 4 brand new tracks that push beyond 2006 critically acclaimed Lethologica. During the years of silence the band progressed as songwriters, which is reflected in every track on the Teach Children How To Think, Not What To Think EP. Intelligently layered structures entwined with amazingly crafted melodies leave no room for interpretation: Mt. are back and determined to permanently claim a place in the spotlights.
Better Living (Through Chemistry) CD
Methadrone has come a long way since its conception as a 2-bassed sludge/drone monolith. Craig Pillard (who has been part of Evoken, Incantation, e.a.) gradually expanded his sound through experiment with acoustic guitars and other vocal collaborations. Better Living (Through Chemistry) is pushing beyond the boundaries of traditional doom music, resulting in well balanced atmospheric pieces of music which make this third full album the apogee of Methadrone's oeuvre this far. On this innovative journey, that bridges the gaps between doom, drone, dark ambient, wave and even neo-folk, Pillard sided with Jason Wallach (The Unquiet Void), Tara Vanflower (Lycia) and Thierry Arnal (fragment.) to present their next step in the evolution of gloomy music. Deluxe oversized packaging.
Through Early Seed CD
Mondrian Oak conceived in autumn 2007, and slowly paved the path to launch their debut album Through Early Seed. These Italians shared the stage with a lot of great bands (Zippo, Gerda, Last Minute To Jaffna, Viscera/// e.a.), which most certainly helped them to shape their own voice within the genre: they have crafted a sound which is evocative and psychedelic merely with the classic rock instruments, devoid of excess. With their loud, doomy and gloomy outbursts that alternate with intimate acoustic parts, their music is situated on the crossroads between postrock and postcore. The maturity and originality they put in the arrangements of the composition makes this a debut album that truly stands out, and predicts a promising future!

MERRIMACK provide the torch to guide the way - submit yourself to Grey Rigorism! Recorded, mixed and mastered at Necromorbus Studios (Watain, Deathspell Omega)! Unique cover art by Seldon Hunt Design (The Ocean, Pelican)!
The Light Devouring Darkness CD
One of the most cult names of early black metal, Finland’s ARCHGOAT vomit forth what is destined to be another classic: "The Light-Devouring Darkness", the band’s first widely available release in over a decade! With its title as their inspiration, "The Light-Devouring Darkness" is both summation and intensification – bulldozer grind, sulphurous blackness, sepulchral atmosphere. Hear where bestial Black Metal begins…and ends!
Death Nord Kult CD
Russia’s leading black metal veterans return with their highly anticipated 4th album and Moribund debut. Cold, cult black metal in the Nordic tradition, this is the sound of freezing winds, glacial isolation and permanent darkness. Old Wainds embody the harsh Arctic Circle hinterland that conceived them. Packaged with a lavish 20-page booklet!
Goatspeed Into Magenta Vacuum CD
Ah, sweet avant-garde madness from one Juho Goatspeed, which maintains individualistic clarity of vision while completely eschewing the bedroom-BM aesthetic. Five tracks of mondo bizarro fringe-adherent quasi-black metal on offer, drawing from the usual influences. I’m kidding, of course, since there’s nothing usual in this realm of extreme metal. Still, one can point to various spots on this record and feel the spectral auras of Peccatum, Korova, pre-K Covenant, Arcturus, Ved Buens Ende and the rest of an inscrutably wacky lot circa 1997-2000. A sullen ‘80s British new wave atmosphere, Crowleyian references both explicit and tangential alike, and obscure 1970s psychedelic vibes permeate the record as well, due most likely to whatever combination of hallucinogens are at work (on Juho, not me!). It all comes together with sterling integrity and precision. This is all the more laudable given that the album was recorded in willy-nilly fashion over the time span of some three years, which could have easily rendered it somewhere between patchwork and overindulgence. With a more conventional recording schedule, a full band at work and drums with more oomph, Spiderpact will inevitably create a keeper to accompany this sleeper. - Matthew Kirshner
All that you will hear is not a result of long cogitations and reflections. This is pure intuition and fist feelings unsheathed at the gathering of Nokturnal Mortum and Lucifugum. Official release authorized by Faunus from Lucifugum and Knjaz Varggoth, Saturious and Munruthel from Nokturnal Mortum.

Maegaqshira / Sowbelly / OSSM Split CD
So, it’s another day of the same ol’ shit. Your girlfriend left you; your boss is dogging you relentlessly and you come home to find your bottle of sippin’ sauce is running on empty. Even worse, the liquor store is closed. Somehow, you need release. Hell, at the very least you need mood music. Well, here’s the soundtrack that will get you through the tough times! New Jersey, Michigan and Kentucky (in that order) unite to help you take on the wrongs of the world. MAEGASHIRA fills your bottle with a Wild Turkey smooth stoner/sludge swing, SOWBELLY steamrolls your lowlife boss with down-tempo hate-doom and OSSM makes you forget that lousy tramp with a smoky blues caress. It’s an epic hour’s worth of sludge to help you abandon a lifetime of bad days!
The first and only record from Virginia’s now deceased psychopaths. Those wishing Dax Riggs would cut the artsy bullshit and make friends with the ACID BATH members again, say hello to your new favorite album. Scattershot, death/grind speed surgery combines with epic Southern sprawl, catapulted into the cosmos by Steve Kerchner’s (SEVENTH GATE, LOST-IT) schizophrenic mix of crooning and screeching. Recommended listening for the criminally insane.
Brain Food For The Braindead CD
NOOSEBOMB is former members of GRIEF & DISRUPT Jeff Hayward & Randy Odierno along with Mike Butkiewicz of BANE OF EXISTENCE. To quote Rion of UNEARTHLY TRANCE, NOOSEBOMB "sounds like GRIEF injecting caffeine into their veins while drinking beers with CELTIC FROST". Brain Food for the Braindead was recorded with Bill T. Miller (GRIEF / DISRUPT) at Headroom in Boston.
Reissue of Finland bruisers FLESHPRESS’ debut LP, originally released by Kult of Nihlow in 2002, first time available on CD. Mind numbing psychedelic sludge is the order of the day and this record finds the band hitting their full stride. The end result mimics the effect of SLEEP dropping blotter acid with GRIEF! Lung-scraping screams of rage force their way to the frontlines of an eternal, slow-groove battle for possession of your soul. The smallest twitch of blues and smoldering space-rock infuses these rotten dirges with nerve frying dynamics. One of the most underrated sludge/doom juggernauts to ever roam the Earth!
Live At St. George's Hall CD
GREAT sounding Live show from the "Symphonies of Sickness" era, recorded November 15, 1989. What is especially cool about this recording is that Bill's microphone must have been cranked up on the volume so as soon as he does his vokills over Jeff's disgusting snarls, the combination hits you in the face like a fucking mallet. Ultra sick sound, A MUST HAVE for any Goregrind/Death Metal fans.Tracks: Genital grinder - Exhume to Consume - Ruptured in Purulence - Empathological Necroticism - Embryonic necropsy and Devourment - Swarming Vulgar Mass of Infected Virulency - Reek of Putrefaction.

From Which Of This Oak PIC LP
This exclusive and limited Vinyl features the demo wich was released back in 1996 on tape. The music featured here is basically similar to the debut “Pale Folklore”, but with more raw production and different vocals but it absolutely portrays the addicting dark atmosphere of Agalloch, tracks with elegance. This material is today still as excellent as it was 14 years ago and it was clearly foreshadowing of what the band will do in the future…
-Exclusive design by John Haughm & BDS Visuals with use of original Gustave Doré art and old bandpictures
-Featuring the first Agalloch tracks ever recorded, in best possible shape
-Deluxe presentation on 12”Picture LP with thick reverse side printed outer-jacket and A2 Poster on uncoated paper ! Tracklist:
2.As Embers Dress the Sky
4.This Old Cabin
Who the hell are Wyqm you may be asking yourself... I asked the same thing when this classy, darkened, punishing slab of vinyl arrived one fine day. Wyqm are an obscure or simply relatively unknown black metal band who reside in the United States. Little information is available about the band but this s/t LP is their debut recording and it is a hypnotic snakecharmer of a record at that! The off kilter background melodies instantly remind of Xasthur but the actual music is much more in your face than the total wash out Xasthur can sometimes be. You get everything here from tremolo to fret slides and blasting to militant machismo. Wyqm are certainly inspired by some of the best black metal from the states, e.g. Bone Awl, Xasthur, Leviathan, Nachtmystium but are certainly no slouch in their own right. This is the first release from the equally obscure label Death Agonies And Screams and this label has amazingly gone the extra mile in packaging and distributing this release. This LP comes packaged in a beautiful all black sleeve with spot varnish on the front and back and also contains a sticker with the same theme. The vinyl itself is thick and available on 2 different colors of mixed vinyl.

Third album. This time ETHEREAL WOODS return with an even heavier sound (now touching Death Metal), retaining their Doomy and melancholic sound while infusing a dose of sylvian fantasy into their unique Elizabethan theme.
A Chronicle Of The Plague CD
DARK AGE's second album continues offering us minimalist Dark Ambient from the main member of DRUDKH and HATE FOREST, this time more melodic than before, and inspired on the horrors of the Middle Ages. Between the fall of the Western Roman emprie in A.D. 476 and the fall of Constantinople (capital of the Eastern Roman empire) in 1453, Europe was ravaged by plagues and superstition. Greek was largely forgotten, and with it much of the learned texts of antiquity. 'A Chronicle of the Plague' is a musical tale of the terror of 1349, which depopulated entire villages and decimated Europe's human population; the disease was not understood at the time, and therefore it was assumed to have been the wrathful punishment from the Judaeochristian Deity. Alas, prayers were of no avail...
Woods Of Infinity
Hopplös Väntan CD
Very long mini-album, with six tracks and clocking in at half an hour. This talented duo offer us here some very strange tracks: they are, of course, full of the depressive melodies and melancholic desperation that constitute their trademark sound, but the tracks are very twisted and obscure, done in the weird, sarcastic way that only WOODS OF INFINITY would dream of.
Aeschatologia digi CD
Times of pox and death, heresy and persecution, when Hell was wrought on earth in the name of a so-called ‘God’: Bann’s mission is to explore those mediaeval times through their unique brand of ambient black metal. Following on from the highly acclaimed 2006 debut demo ‘Antiochia’ (re-released 2007 by Grief Foundation), Bann now fulfill the promise of their early work with this new album. Recorded, mixed and mastered at SAD studios in Germany. Through Æschatologia, their debut full-length, Bann (Hoffarth and Thurn) depict the disease and filth of the Middle Ages through a 6-part hour-long symphony. Black Metal vocals (reminding a little of Silencer) are used to tell the tale of these times, with symphonic soundtrack driving home the emotion and despair of the scenes within. Each track tells a separate tale of woe covering subjects such as infant mortaility, The Crusades, and the Papal Bull of 1484 that was to condemn thousands to torture and death accused of witchcraft and heresy. Eschewing the current trends, Bann’s work here is polished and unafraid of melody; yet it manages to retain as certain sorrow and a depressive edge that is sure to satisfy many fans of Black Metal.
Black Thrashing Genocide CD
Review from Metalcrypt: "After a trippy, slap feedback filled (if not ultimately pointless) intro, it soon becomes clear as to what sort of bands Phillipino metal mongers Maniak worship. Within seconds, Black Thrashing Genocide transports you back to the early to mid 80s, when the 1st wave of Black Metal crawled kicking and screaming into existence. Much like Sabbat or Abigail - the Japanese ones, naturally - this is all about unashamedly aping the noisy, thrashy blackened sounds that were created by the likes of early Venom and Bathory, with a gnarly ejaculate of Sodom squirted into the mixing pot. In fact, you only need to add in a few virgins, goats, and unholy semen (regular semen just doesn't have the same piquancy), and you have Maniak's Raison d'être right there. The bass heavy mix does a lot to keep the rumbling, dirty sound these guys create uncomfortable to listen to (as it should be, I might add), with noisy riffs squealing and writhing out chaotic songs about satan, thunder, goats and raising your damn fist for METAL. Having déjà vu? Think you've heard it all before? Of course you have, but it doesn't stop it from being thoroughly enjoyable. They certainly have the enthusiasm and nuts to back it up, not to mention the riffs!"
To The Dark Aeon CD
4 hymns of Antichrist Underground Black Metal against Judeo Christianity.
Marblebog / Vorkuta

The Insignificance Of Life CD
Cold, depressive hymns to suicide strongly in the vein of Abyssic Hate, Forgotten Tomb, Xasthur etc. Strongest release of the genre in some time.
General Surgery / Butcher ABC
Just in stock and we were pretty stoked to get these in honestly. New gorehymns from our favorite gore merchants General Surgery is always a momentous occasion! Japan's Butcher ABC, though probably not as well known outside of extreme gore/grind circles are just as lovely to listen to!
Oaken Throne #6 2009
Finally, the new issue is here! There has been lots of interest in this zine, especially over the last 2 years and all the word of mouth recommendations have been directly related to the intense quality and craftsmanship these guys have put into Oaken Throne since issue #1 (some of you might perhaps remember the first 2 issues being like 5 feet tall?). Issue #6 is another 7x7 formatted work of art and they managed to step up the quality yet again this time ditching the staples and adding the extra class of making everything spinebound. Interviews this issue include: Akitsa, Aluk Todolo, Avsky, Dead Raven Choir, Dialing In, Gnaw Their Tongues, Immolation, IXXI, Lugubrum, Necros Christos, Necrovation, Throneum and Vargr. As with the last issue, #6 also includes a compilation CD containing tracks from all the interviewed artists. A whopping 96 pages presented with the usual stellar offset printed covers. The wholesale price went up this time around (as expected) so we are forced to charge more than ever before for one issue but be assured that it is damn well worth every penny.

AKR 027 MARBLEBOG / VORKUTA
WANDERINGS split 7" EP
Anyone with an ear to the underground or just good taste in what it has to offer are surely familiar with Hungary's Marblebog, and recently riding that same cold, deep and despairingly black wave are countrymen Vorkuta. Paragon Records (US) just gave them props with a full length in 07 and Vorkuta are certainly not taking a break anytime soon. Members of both Marblebog and Vorkuta have long ties with eachother and THAT makes this split a bit more relevant than most. Marblebog contribute "Uttalan Utakon", a ferocious 7 minute bass driven beast of a track that begins with a fire that only years of black metal tradition can ignite and then segues into a deep deep canyon of despair as only Marblebog know how. Most have never heard Marblebog sound like this as it is their most mature material to date and despite activity on numerous splits recently, Marblebog hasn't had a full length in quite some time. This split will leave you begging for it... Fellow countrymen Vorkuta attack this split with a brand new track "Prophecies" which certainly isn't the lighter side of this release. Written in 3 parts (War/Cleansing/Triumph) the track is a blazing assault in tribute to man's oldest pastime. Those already familiar with Vorkuta absolutely need this in their collection as (like the Marblebog track) it is some of their most mature work to date. 2 stunning tracks make this split an absolute must have release. Another vinyl in our series of joint split 7" releases but this time the co-release duties are shared by our good friends at Ars Magna Recordings. Limited to 500 copies only - 250 on GOLD vinyl (available through Ars Magna mailorder only http://www.arsmagnarecordings.com) and 250 on PINK Marbled vinyl OR RED Marbled vinyl (Color is chosen at our discretion so please don't ask)available through Autopsy Kitchen mailorder only. Full color sleeves with 2 sided inserts. Available now!
Ancient Crypt Metal 3" CD - Autopsy Kitchen Records - AKR029
DOG is a relatively new project started by Blizzard of Vorkuta and Gabor of Marblebog over the last year and together they have created maniacal hymns of pure evil genius black thrash! No need to cite influences, if you like metal in it's purest form you can't possibly dislike DöG. "Ancient Crypt Metal" is the first pro release and hopefully the 1st release in a long line of corrupt blackened thrash attacks from DöG. This is an entirely pro release complete with a 4 page booklet and marks the first release in a series of 3" CDs from Autopsy Kitchen. Out now!

The Awakening of Athos CD
Raw, harsh and dissonant Black Metal. Full of hatred and misanthropy towards the human race. Athos stands for the demise of the judeo-christian dogma and its hold on modern society. The Awakening of Athos is a tribute to the ancient Hellenic spirit and the rise of the great Titan! For fans of Gorgoroth, Kawir and Burzum.
Desire In Uneasiness digi CD
Following a wave of recent reissues and re-recorded versions of older CD-R titles, Desire In Uneasiness is an album of all new material from the acclaimed Canadian dreamsludge weavers Nadja. Five colossal jams of eternally-fuzzy, ethereal dirge that are powered by the interlocking bass guitars of Leah Buckareff and Aidan Baker, who set loose a wave of monstrous grinding bass riffs amidst a fog of beautiful, swirling electronic effects. Desire also marks the first Nadja album to feature a live drummer in place of the drum machine programming that has driven the band's previous recordings, and the difference in the band's sound is apparent from the first crushing beats of album opener 'Disambiguation'. The organic drumming here takes Nadja's music into new realms of spacious jazzy exploration, dubby rhythms and cavernous psychedelia, while also delivering some of the band's most grooving, crushing hypno-bliss yet. Desire also stands out from the rest of the Nadja catalog for it's bizarre artwork that Aidan commissioned from his friend The Reverend Aitor. Aitor's bright, bold lines and textured magic marker artwork gives the gatefold jacket we've presented this disc in the look of a twisted children's book on acid, with weird images of chickens, trees growing through chairs, and more. The package is a sturdy 4-panel gatefold jacket printed by Stoughton, and it looks killer.
Lights Bane digi CD
The debut album from the Portland quartet Trees delivers two epic tracks of monolithic, blackened doom metal with a twisted, noise-damaged approach and a dank basement vibe. Trees craft glacial abstract riffs and rivers of ashen amplifier goo that fans of feedback-laden heaviosity will find highly satisfying, a kind of grinding, slow-motion black hole psychedelia that has a similar hypnotic death-ritual quality as artists like Bloody Panda and Khanate, but with their own unique trance state of swirling guitar textures, horrific jet black dronescapes and ghoulish, excoriating vocals. Features members of the PDX psych-sludge outfit Tecumseh (Important Records). This CD edition of the TREE's debut comes in a Stoughton printed 4-panel gatefold case.
Gnaw Their Tongues
An Epiphanic Vomiting Of Blood digi CD
Gnaw Their Tongues, an enigmatic project from the Netherlands that has wowed fans of messed-up heaviosity with the phenomenal Reeked, Pained and Shuddering CD that was released on Paradigms along with a host of super-limited CDR and cassette releases, is joining the Crucial Blast roster for the CD release of the new full length An Epiphanic Vomiting Of Blood, which was released as a limited edition vinyl release at the beginning of 2008 on Burning World Records. This undefinable mass of black amorphic horror is one of the most intense listens we've engaged in recently, a nihilistic pit of howling orchestral strings and blackened abstract doom, operatic female voices plunging into a fetid sewer of filth and blackness, equal parts avant black metal and splattered sludge and symphonic horror movie score. An overwhelming deathscape scrawled in jagged figures across pieces like "My body is not a vessel, nor a temple. It's a repulsive pile of sickness" or "Sawn asunder and left for the beasts", and flecked with moments of unbelievably crushing beauty that may surprise fans of Gnaw Their Tongue's previous work.
Above The Law CD
Eight slabs of undiluted heavy metal rock n roll fueled by cheap alcohol and easy women. Musical influence comes from the old guard - Motorhead, Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, Discharge, Thin Lizzy - injected into a band that has totally found their sound, with fresh energy and a unique approach. Above the Law is a true diamond in the ocean of meaningless, stale shit that manages to pass as Heavy Metal these days. Outlaw rock n roll, Hellish grooves and Iron fists! BE WARNED!!
Speckledy Falcons CD
From Lithuania, once largest country in Europe, emerges Altar Shadows! Folk/Pagan Metal blending electric and acoustic music, ambient soundscapes, original lyrics and classical Lithuanian poetry, male and female vocals to create a memorable work that summons the ancient spirit from the shadows of false temples. In the vein of bands such as DRUDKH, EMPYRIUM, ANUBI, early OBTEST and should be sought out by fans of Kroda, Burzum, Arkona, Nokturnal Mortum, Temnozor, Velimor, et al. for the combination of folk, pagan and black metal. However always remaining an original and visionary brand of metal. Altar Shadows is the dark aesthetic rising from endless yearning. Yearning the values, that now seem rejected and considered to be humdrum, unpopular. id est sensibility, tenderness, contemplation, love for ones homeland, its nature, and particularly its past. The roots of this aesthetic are found in the shadows of foreign altars, where the old Baltic culture wasnt crushed by the power of interloper religion. It is not plainspoken glorification of the Baltic past by using folklore elements in music. True reality of the ancient pagan world is unlikely to be found in here. It is more looking for moments in the present, in which the old reality still echoes… It is living through the wind of spring, through the silence of summer nights, through the rustle of autumn leaves and through the stillness of forests buried with snow… It is encoded in paintings by M. K. Ciurlionis in the poetry of V. Macernis, V. M.-Putinas ir P.Sirvys.
Macabre Noize Royale CD
T.O.M.B. is a mysterious, unnamed entity well known for crafting the darkest noise recordings with the aid of nothing but field recordings. With Macabre Noize Royale, T.O.M.B. has set out to push the boundaries further than ever before. To collect the field recordings T.O.M.B. traveled and trespassed through Pennsylvanias darkest landmarks including: Bethlehem Steel Works - builder of large caliber guns during WWI and WWII Eden Hall Church - 157 year old gothic church destroyed from arson Laurel Hill Cemetery - 170 year old cemetery Lambertville High School - students burned alive 30 years ago, site of countless suicides since. Each location has a disturbing history and they have become locations of multiple ghost sightings and unexplained deaths. Through these field recordings, smashing recording rods into massive steel structures and ancient crypt doors, T.O.M.B. reawakens the decaying structures and the agonizing history they hold sealed. The recordings are then crafted into the darkest, heaviest BLACK NOISE ever recorded. And for the first time full Black Metal / Industrial tracks have been created. Macabre Noize Royale is T.O.M.B.s most diverse album by far. Integrating pure noise with ambiance, Industrial and Black Metal. The clear intention is to push the boundaries of Black Noise sound manipulation and continue to shock the listener (both fans and newcomers).
Death - Pierce Me MARBLED LP
Not a new pressing of vinyl but simply 20 copies of recently found stock of overrun vinyl from the MARBLED vinyl pressing of "Death - Pierce Me". We had no idea they existed until recent flooding caused all of our vinyl stock to have to be moved.
Autopsy Kitchen, as many may have heard, had some legal troubles with Prophecy Productions (GER) over the rights to Silencer's one and only album. Sales of the "Death - Pierce Me" LP and Picture LP were halted immediately after. 20x copies of the remaining stock of the black vinyl version were destroyed by hand to accommodate sleeves and innersleeves for these MARBLED LPs. That's the story.
These aren't "advertised" anywhere and will be sold via AKR mailorder only as long as they last. These do NOT contain the 10" or limited cards that came with the original MARBLED edition of "Death - Pierce Me" limited to 100 copies. This is simply a great looking version of a classic black metal record on limited colored vinyl. Each copy will contain 1 original card however that was included with all other versions of the AKR press. Instead of simply hand numbering though, each copy will be mailed to you with the # your purchase was and your name in silver ink. Ex: you were the third person to purchase so (#3/20 - your name) will mark the back of the sleeve.
Keep in mind, this is not a re-press and AKR will always keep our promise to never re-press our vinyl titles alive as long as this label exists.
The Scribbler CD
Reissue of the 1992 classic by this Australian genius, originally released in an edition of 500 copies. Occasional bursts of factory noise, industrial rumblings and disembodied German voices form the backdrop to a minimalist reworking of Kafka's "The Trial." An album of dense filmic atmospheres and orchestral instrumentation. 'The Scribbler' has been digitally remastered and is enhanced with a series of video clips constructed by Richard Grant (I+T=R), incorporating both new material together with the original images prepared for "The Scribbler" live show.
