Various Artists – A Decade Ilian Tape 3xLP

Fans of breakbeat driven techno will want to throw this one in their bag immediately. For a full decade now, the Zenker Brothers have been releasing nothing but quality tunes on their Ilian Tape imprint, and to celebrate they are dropping a gorgeous 3xLP compilation appropriately titled A Decade Ilian Tape. You should be able to […]

Candelabrum – Necrotelepathy LP

If raw, in-the-red, wall-of-sound black metal is your thing, then you are likely well familiar with Portugal’s Black Cilice. You probably didn’t miss the extremely limited initial pressing of Necrotelepathy from side project Candelabrum either. So you wouldn’t have any need to pick up the repress that is now available from or

Panphage – Drengskapr LP

If the Bandcamp profile photo doesn’t immediately sell you, or offends your puritan black metal sensibilities, then we could not possibly go out of our way enough to convince you to pick up the new LP from Sweden one-man band Panphage. Glorious riffs and triumphantly unhinged vocals with a production that complements the music quite perfectly; […]

Turia – Dede Kondre LP / Iskandr – Heilig Land LP

There’s something going on in the Netherlands, and it would be worth swiveling your lens in that direction. Both Turia and Iskandr play long-form black metal that is both slightly psychedelic and fairly minimal. Dede Kondre was played and recorded live and the vinyl grooves do indeed exude that kind of wild energy; while Heilig Land […]

Tape Tuesday: Nightbringer – Terra Damnata

Normally, we’d probably just mention all the rad vinyl they guys are doing, but we think this might be one of the only proper Nightbringer releases made available on cassette in recent memory (not including reissues.) Whatever, either way, a slew of different options are available for the blistering Terra Damnata from Seasons Of Mist. […]

Uškumgallu – Rotten Limbs in Dreams of Blood LP

Uškumgallu on Vrasubatlat. The phonetics are as impenetrable as the music, and neither were made for peaceable ingestion. Metal Archives tells me that members are shared with Ash Borer, but the sound here is less cathartic and more primal, raw and violent (not at all unlike last year’s criminally slept upon Urzeit release). Follow the Vrasubatlat […]

Visible Cloaks – Reassemblage LP + CS

We’ve been holding on to this bookmark for awhile, but it looks like the Pitchfork BNM hype machine is forcing our hand. You’ll want to get in and snatch the edition of Reassemblage that comes with the mixtape, won’t you? Of course you will, youngling. Beautiful electronic sounds and weirdo sound design from this duo; fresh out […]

Julie Byrne – Not Even Happiness LP

There does rise the occasion when you have exhausted your psyche from scouring your emotions with abrasive metal or forcing them to limp along robotically to soulless techno tones and you just need to sit down and put on an album that will hit you squarely in the feels. This one has been doing it for me lately. […]

Cultes Des Ghoules – Coven, or Evil Ways Instead of Love 3xLP

We got so caught up stalking Hells Headbangers waiting for the drop that we forgot to alert our faithful to the newest masterpiece from Cultes Des Ghoules. We aren’t being hyperbolic when we say this album is quite unlike anything else out there, and certainly worthy of the 3xLP pressing that Hells Headbangers has bestowed up […]

Tape Tuesday: mmph – Dear God

Dear God, indeed. Electronic sounds gathered and then organized into a balm designed for troubled minds. May cause anxiety and/or bliss depending on pre-existing conditions. Virtually harmless when taken as prescribed. Let this one wash right over you: Dear God by mmph
