Rorcal & Solar Flare - 2011

     "For this work, we locked ourselves with SOLAR FLARE for 3 days in a humid basement (our practice room actually) to write and record a collaborative track sounding as heavy as it could be with 2 basses, 3 guitars and supported by drums and vocals from the Mordor. All has been mastered again by Raph Bovey who produced HLGBLS, and we might be even close to make an Uruk-hai cry for mercy.
As concept and guideline, we found inspiration in the poem “La Ronde sous la Cloche”, taken from the book “Gaspard de la Nuit” and written by the french poet Aloysius Bertrand… although the legend says that this book was probably written by the devil himself. His text drags you into a world between nightmare, hallucination and darkness which we tried to reproduce musicaly."

The Reptilians - 2010 - Mentalist

"Greetings, my name is Viktor Wilt and I am writing to you today in regard to the Idaho-based band The Reptilians. The band is currently in the studio tracking the music for two new full-length releases. Based on the type of bands you feature on your website I think the band's most recent album, The Mentalist, may be of enjoyment to your staff. The album can be downloaded free of charge at the following page on the band's official website. The audio is available in 320kb mp3 or FLAC format. The .zip file includes a band bio, selected press and a 37 page .pdf booklet of artwork for the album."


"If you believe in Karma then you have to believe that Violence is something innate in every human or inhuman being. Karma in the old and now Indian religions is the concept of "action" understood which creates the entire cycle of cause and effect. Violence from the other hand is inside in each one of us, some people can control and others cannot, but in every occasion it is a part of human nature. Living in the modern world, all of us can see violence in our eyes, in the streets and everywhere. The combination of Karma Violens describes the action of Violence, because every action in these brutal days creates a violent respond.

Karma Violens created their first lines in music in September 2002. The music is an amalgam of Extreme Metal (death, thrash, black), combined with Hardcore music lines and idiosyncrasy. The music of Karma Violens is not categorized and avoids every music label except the word "Metal" and that's the way the band wants to keep it." 

Mixed and mastered at Lambesis studios in California, USA "owned by Tim
Lambesis (As I Lay Dying)" by Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, Zao, Winds
of Plague, Sworn Enemy).
Recorded at the Devasoundz studios engineered and produced by Fotis
Benardo (Septic Flesh) and Karma Violens.

Burn Everything - 2011 - Last Run Through The Ruins EP

And this is really good shit from  Rochester, NY(USA). Kick ass apple core (can I say so ?)))
All the Dillinger Escape Plan, Coalesce, Burnt By the Sun fans should immediately take up each other's arms and start running a violent-kicking roundelay. Recommended as hug!
Hey guys ! Did you tried to knock into Relapse doors ?

The Moss has changed it's name to Fellwoods...

The Moss from Portland, Oregon is changing its name.  We have run into too much crossover with other bands using the Moss name, most notably the sludge doom  Moss from UK.  It’s been an arduous process, but we have chosen Fellwoods as the new name.   We will phase out ‘The Moss’ slowly, with plenty of notice to all concerned parties.  Thanks everyone for your support, and we look forward to the future with a new moniker.  Look for news about CD and Vinyl releases of our Wulfram album, as well as a whole new batch of songs awaiting recording. Thanks, Fellwoods (formerly, The Moss)

Cosmonauts Day - 2011 - Paths of the Restless

 Great band with a cool conceptual album from Moscow, Russia. It's a one breath journey divided into 8 volumes. I can compare 'em with Pelican, Isis by the atmosphere. Fabulous work done!
Support the band. Buy a CD!

"From the depths of Russian underground scene comes absolutely epic spaced out sludge outfit Cosmonauts Day! Intense guitar ... more riffing, crushing to the ground and below drum stabbing, wicked bass, dreamy solos and an atmoshere of a cold space - their music is a mind journey to the places you've never known."

Grand Central - 2011 - 01

Awesome boozy Sludge'n'Roll from Paris! Looks like Raging Speedhorn was re-incarnated and moved to France.
