ARIZMENDA – Stillbirth in the Temple of Venus 2xLP

Counterpoint to the album released by BTC figurehead Volahn earlier this year, Stillbirth in the Temple of Venus is the newest double LP of black sex majick from ARIZMENDA. A hotly anticipated release, not least of all because this has always been one of the more interesting projects to shake out of the deep folds of […]

Abigor – 1994-1998 The Complete Hörnix Recordings

This is a monumental release from the legendary Abigor, and you could easily argue that it comprises their best material. A boxset featuring remastered audio of the first six albums worth of material. No Cracker Jack’s trinkets or colored vinyl – simple, no-frills packaging and a 32 page booklet, all presented on black vinyl LPs with a nice looking slipcase to […]

Rhinocervs – RH-11 LP

The infamous Rhinocervs tape label does not seem to be functioning anymore, but Final Agony seems intent on giving many of their fantastic and poorly-dubbed/distributed releases a proper vinyl pressing (along with a usually much needed remastering). The most recent to hit their shelves is RH-11 and can be purchased on limited colored vinyl over […]

Darkspace – Darkspace I 2xLP

Frostbite in outer space is infinitely more grim than frostbite on planet Earth. It is known. Darkspace channel cold, clinical soundwaves from the Outer Reaches, and now you can replay these transmissions with the added buffer of analog warmth.

Blut Aus Nord – Memoria Vetusta III: Saturnian Poetry LP

Updated 12/3/2014: Now in-stock and available from 20buckspinshop.com. A brand new album from Blut Aus Nord is not necessarily a rare event. The man (and his band?) have been putting out top-tier, icy black metal consistently and prolifically. A new entry in the Memoria Vetusta series, though? Well, that’s nothing to blog about lightly. You […]

Swallowed – Lunarterial 2xLP

Plenty of bands piggyback on the mythos laid down by the visions of infernally inspired storytellers preceding them. I mean, how many more songs need to be written to finally wring the last, fetid drops from the shroud of Howard Phillips Lovecraft’s imagination? Well, lots more, probably. Anyways, point being – sometimes a band just hurls you […]
