Sutekh Hexen – Salem LP

Salem is a live, impromptu field-recording by GreySun Records which provides a rare window into the improvisational and un-scripted creative realms of Sutekh Hexen.

Upon completion came reflection and context, which yielded a challenging […]

So Pitted – Neo LP

Negative noise rock is not only appropriate, but necessary. Neo starts off in the red and doesn’t drop the needle until your dreams of a pleasant spring are buried beneath a mountain of feedback, sludge and migraine inducing percussion. Pick up the white vinyl at megamart.subpop.com.

Creation Is Crucifixion – Antenna Builder / Rerecorded Splits + Live In Geneva 2xLP

Back in the late 90’s, CIC put the ‘tech’ in tech-metal.

Marshstepper – s/t LP (2nd Pressing)

CH-256, also known as Marshstepper’s self-titled effort, began life as a cassette edition in 2012, and was repressed a couple of times. The 2015 vinyl edition seems to be following a similar lifecycle, as there is now a 2nd pressing available and all fans of murky and sometimes miserable noise (with the occasional beat extended as […]
