GRAB
Zeitlang

- Gatefold 2LP (black vinyl, 180g) with padded inner sleeves, insert and protection sleeve

"Zeitlang" is the harsh debut full-length of Bavarian black metal act GRÀB featuring founding vocalist Grant. The former DARK FORTRESS frontman has written the entire concept album in a local dialect of Germany's southernmost Alpine state.

GRÀB, which means “old and grey”, are lyrically telling the story of an old man, who has chosen to withdraw from society into an isolated cottage deep in the mountains, where he reflects on his life while his death edges ever closer. The story on "Zeitlang" ("Yearning") begins in his early childhood with the song 'Nachtkrapp' ("Night Raven") and continues all the way to his end, which is illuminated by the track 'A Gråbliacht' ("A Grave Lantern").

Musically, GRÀB are picking up the Norwegian strands of early GEHENNA, ULVER, and DARKTHRONE as well as being inspired by German NAGELFAR and LUNAR AURORA. Yet true to their topic, the Bavarians include traditional local elements, which is instrumentally expressed by the use of hammered dulcimer, zither and alphorn.

Vocalist and Bavarian poet Grant views "Zeitlang" as his personal musical legacy. Join the singer and GRÀB on their equally intimate and forceful quest into the dark and stark places of the human mind and Alpine nature where there are no safe spaces.

ARCHGOAT - Worship The Eternal Darkness (LTD color vinyl)
Pre order

ARCHGOAT
Worship The Eternal Darkness (LTD color vinyl)

Pressed on blood red w/ black spinner effect heavy vinyl. Comes with a 4-page 12"x12" booklet, A2 poster and a download card. Colors on final record may vary to a degree from the mockup.

32 years after formation, Finnish iconoclasts ARCHGOAT stand monolithic as one of the most nightmarishly singular bands in extreme music. Helmed with preternatural telepathy by twin brothers Ritual Butcherer and Lord Angelslayer, newest emission "Worship the Eternal Darkness" is a typically depraved set built to mock our contemporary malaise. Continuing on from preceding album "The Luciferian Crown" the hoof-pressure is slightly alleviated from the throat, the band's patented synthesis of occult Finnish Black/Death Metal, harsh Punk, primal Thrash and Grindcore is tempered here with elements of melodic dynamism: a rhythmic crush less unrelenting, horrorshow vocals slightly more intelligible, a production shorn of murk highlighting potent synth-sorcery and welcome NWOBHM influences, not least guitar solos of old-school finesse. Recorded over 2 days in foulest 2021 and clad-as-ever in immortal Chris Moyen artwork, "Worship the Eternal Darkness" has all the thematic unity, arcane knowledge, otherworldly class and divine filth expected from a legendary band stoking underground hellfires which burn stronger than ever.

LYCIA - Cold (galaxy trans blue and orange)
Pre order

LYCIA
Cold (galaxy trans blue and orange)

 

There is not much to say about Lycia’s masterpiece which hasn’t been said already. Originally released in October 1996, following 1995 The Burning Circle and Then Dust, Cold is one of the most important and relevant darkwave albums of the nineties.

Inspired by the band’s relocation from the desert of Phoenix, AZ, to the snowy landscapes of Streetsboro, Ohio, Cold is a paradigm shift in terms of surroundings as much as a further development in Lycia soundscapes. “I think of all the albums I’ve done, the time and place when we recorded it seeped into Cold more than into any other album”, Mike VanPortfleet commented years later.

Cold is unquestionably one of the very pinnacles in Lycia’s discography, a discography now spanning over three decades and filled with acclaimed releases. An album conceived in the fall of 1995 and ultimately born in the winter of 1996, coming from a band used to write their music in the heat of the desert and now immersed in a snowy, wintry landscape, now made available again for its 25th anniversary.

PROSCRIPTOR MCGOVERN’S APSU
s/t - LP clear vinyl

When drummer/vocalist Proscriptor McGovern (Russ R. Givens) dissolved Absu on January 27th 2020, his main intention was to splinter the 30-year old faction into a renewed songwriting concord. Proscriptor McGovern’s Apsû is the obvious by-product of that chemical breakdown, which constitutes a new incarnation and direct continuation of Absu’s legacy. Securing the ranks, alongside McGovern, are continuing bassist/vocalist Ezezu (Absu: 2008-2020), new guitar virtuoso Vaggreaz (Possessed, Gruesome) and keyboardist Vorskaath (Zemial, Agatus). Since Absu’s last, unreleased album was to be penned as “Apsû,” McGovern fused the title with his name to form the group. With this much anticipated, self-titled album, McGovern’s objective was to append the signature sound of “mythological occult metal,” but to convolute it with bouts of psychedelia, fusion and vintage electronics. Written for those who are curious and unwearied in their quest of arcane knowledge, the album was chronicled at studios around the world and features an exclusive set of guests
