Within a year my third purchase from Unreqvitet, debut album first on cassette, later on vinyl and now this latest one on splattered vinyl (this version is more likely sold out by now). As some of you already know I’m bad with putting artists on some specific genres.. but let’s try. Atmospheric blackened metal is the closest genre I can come up with, piano/strings/ethereal & haunting vocals, and here we got a winner. Love that debut and now the feeling […]
Oh what a beauty this latest release from Clint Heidorn is. Been a big fan of his music since I bought his debut album “Atwater” seven years ago.. what makes me wonder how fast years are passing by. Thing here is acoustic, avantgardish field recordings etc. and this new album is.. can’t even describe how amazing this is. Thanks to Clint for his music, would love to hear music from him much often. This record arrived within two days from […]
With Triptykon I have to admit that I haven’t listened this band in ages even though this album has been on my “wantlist” like forever. Few days ago I saw that this original version was available on my local record store for very reasonable prize. Nearly perfect copy all the way and here it is now. I know that this album has been repressed last year but I always prefer original pressings.. it’s just the thing I can’t explain. Now […]
Actually this one came few weeks ago but I haven’t had a time to check it out but now. Strange (in good way), hazy, psychedelic/avantgardish twelve-inch from this gentleman known also as a member of The Oscillation. This is travelling music, best listened as you sit on some train staring out of the window your headphones on. Bought my copy from Cardinal Fuzz and seems that it’s already sold out from that source but still available for example from following […]
Ha, I just could not resist purchasing this box set. One of the most interesting albums this year and surely one of my favorite. In case you do not know what Zeal & Ardor is about, I suggest you just to listen few tracks below. This box set is limited to 40 copies and sold out quite fast (and yes, this is second press of this magnificent album. If you dig what you’re hearing there’s still white-colored vinyls (second press, limited […]
This album, “Eater Of Birds” by Cobalt has been on my wantlist for ages and few weeks ago I found a copy from Discogs for a very decent prize. Album arrived few days ago and I’m very pleased that it’s nearly in perfect condition. This is my third album from this band and it’s obvious that I have to find their debut album too.. Anyways, music here on this disk is blackened, avantgardish, hopeless metal. And that’s the way I want […]
Curse of the collector struck again.. I have this album already but still I had to purchase another copy. Vinyl is from the original pressing, there were 31 left over copies without covers. As you can see from the picture, now those copies are covered with shiny new raw card covers. Anyways, this is one of my favourite black/experimental metal albums ever. Track “L’Adieu Au Soleil” still brings shivers down to my spine. Absolute beauty this is and if you […]
Here’s a one breathtaking avantgardish death metal release indeed! This is not for easy-listeners. I really like nearly every release Profound Lore is putting out.. this one goes straight to that continuum. This is a hard bite to chew, I realized it at that very moment I heard first notes from this album and now I’m losing myself to this vortex. This color variation is limited to only 50 copies (and it’s sold out) but there’s still regular black copies available […]
Got this new one from Sumac last week. Like we all know there are some members of Isis & Russian Circles involved with this totally heavy, sludge group and this is their second long-play. I like this one a lot (missed their debut album back then) and really love the atmosphere on this one, it’s heavy & crushing. Available to pre-order from Thrilljockey / or straight from the band’s MerchTable page (both sources have sold out those colored variations). There was these clear […]
UPDATE: Greatest Hits Mailorder seems to have some copies of this one available! Finally. I have been waiting for this so long that I even forgot the whole release. Now it’s here on my hands, this awesome little release. Intense little record with two experimental guitar player painting beautiful soundscapes, what more can you ask? I have been a fan of Clint since I bought his debut release “Atwater” about five years ago but I have to admit that I’m not […]
Ain’t this a beauty or what? Screen printed jacket, clear vinyl with black haze.. Mamiffer and their latest album “The World Unseen”. Still missing their first two full-length maybe just because I found this band via their split release with Locrian about four years ago. This is not background music, these soundscapes are meant to be heard. This colored version is limited to 200 copies (could possible be sold out already) and 800 copies on black wax, available from Sige’s […]
It took nearly seven years from Cobalt to release a new album (I found this band about four-five years ago via their crushing “Gin” album ) and what an album this is! This is not exactly black metal, more like blackened experimental metal seasoned with some elements from country, blues etc. Needles to even say that this album goes straight to my all-time top 10 metal albums. This burnt orange / black variation is limited to 200 copies and unfortunately […]
Yep.it’s a test press of Terra Tenebrosa’s V.I:T.R.I.O.L twelve-inch. This experi-avant-doom-garde-mental band from Sweden forced me to follow their twisted path four years ago and still I haven’t found my way back.. Obviously I’m obsessed with this band. I love the music they produce and the atmosphere on their albums, twisted, sad, dark, hopeless etc. I have managed to purchase all their releases on most limited colorways and today I got this latest, test pressing of V.I.T.R.I.O.L. which is limited […]
Once again, an artist whose whole discography is on my wantlist. There are two drone-avantgarde-experimental guitarists I really adore, Noveller & Thisquietarmy. This is one of of those records you have to experience via headphones, without outside distractions. Beautiful record and makes me wonder why have I prolonged purchasing her records for this long… This beauty is still available from Weird Forest. Recommended. — —
I found out about this band nearly a year ago and got their previous album, if I remember right, on January/February. Amazing album was that indeed. Not a long ago I spotted this new one from Cardinal Fuzz and didn’t hesitate.. and here we have the latest album from this awesome Canadian group. Psychedelic/space rock is the thing here and with that concept you just can’t go wrong. Limited to 350 copies and unfortunately Cardinal Fuzz has sold this out […]
Woah! I didn’t see this coming. I know that Fluid Audio released this on CD last year but I skipped that automatically because of the “wrong” format. Damn I’m happy that I purchased this now on vinyl, released by another awesome record label, Denovali. And once again I gambled, bought this without hearing a note before today (little white lie here, actually I did listen few seconds from the first track before I purchased this) .. I’m in love with […]
Yeah, and then we come to this split release by The Old Wind & Terra Tenebrosa. As I’m a great fan of Terra Tenebrosa I was totally surprised when I found out that they have done this split seven-inch with The Old Wind (band that I’m unfamiliar, well listening their tune at this very moment and sounds quite nice indeed). Ordered this from Pelagic Records with that Cult Of Luna twelve-inch just because of Terra Tenebrosa but it’s always nice […]
Got this one from Box Bedroom Rebels yesterday. This is the second release from series of four (AMBIENCE) and yes, I’m quite happy to own this one too. Little record full of ethereal experimental soundscapes, can’t go wrong. And like part one ‘Marc Manning: Ambience 1’ this also had CD included (75 minutes long beauty). Absolutely new artist to me and now I have to listen her earlier stuff more closely. Recommended, surprise. Just waiting for the part three from this […]
I do not know what is it with Denovali, where they find these artists and records to release? This time collaboration between Anna Von Hausswolff and Matti Bye and the result is totally beautiful, strange, ethereal and obscure.. record (may I call this dream-pop even though there’s something dark and sinister lurking behind). I want more! This is limited to 150 copies on clear and 350 copies on black vinyl. Available from the source, Denovali. Recommended and one of those […]
Awesome end for this week, latest from Terra Tenebrosa. This release came out of nowhere and luckily I managed to grab a copy (thanks to Apocaplexy Records). Yes I like this band, I love it. This is different kind of doom, experimental nearly disturbing if I may say. This band should be bigger, much bigger but in the other hand this is our little underground secret. These two tunes on this record are “left overs” from their two albums, Purging […]
About half an hour ago there was this UPS courier ringing my doorbell. He gave me this pizza box and I thought that this must have something to do with this April Fool’s Day thing. I was wrong. Inside the pizza box I found this very avantgarde, abstract noise record by Cagna Schiumante from Italy (maybe that explains this packaging). Well, very strange record indeed and this one will take some time to chew. Anyways, confusing album and limited to […]
What a wonderful piece of vinyl (plus 70 minutes music on CD). I had no idea about this artist and I purchased this blindfolded just based on a recommendation. Well, not bad recommendation at all. This release is part one from series of four and I’ll certainly go for rest upcoming releases. This is abstract, ethereal psychedelic music with lot of heart on it. Just listening the CD, seventy minute cosmic journey there and back. This is limited to 150 […]
This also came today, pure droned love! I bought this from Discogs and had it for very decent price tag on it. I was ready to purchase regular version of this double album but suddenly I found this copy. I’m happy. Once again Locrian has put out a beautiful record (I have been listening this from their BandCamp site for some time). This record is floating somewhere beyond dark ambient, drone, experimental… I do not know where but that is […]
This one I really like, and damn that I’m so demented nowadays that I can’t even remember how I discovered this album at the first place (in this case it really doesn’t matter anyways). And about the album itself, pure gold. Atmosphere on this album is very dark and same time somehow very calm.. I do not know. No info about limitation but you can order this jewel from Sub Rosa. Highly, recommended.
Uuh.. This one came earlier this week. Utterly awesome experimental/avantgarde/punk/noise debut full length from Keuhkot. This artist is one of his kind. Album was released by Finnish underground label Bad Vugum and as far as I know, there are very limited quantity of this record floating around. I’m still searching the first seven-inch from this artist (in reasonable prize). This kind of stuff I used to listen in my teenage years :) And here is what this artist is about […]
It seems that I have addicted to this artist some bizarre way.. This one I also picked up today. And I have to admit that I have waited for some time to get this on fair prize and suddenly found this from Discogs. I like this, a lot. This color variation is limited to 100 copies and there is also copies (200) on classic black vinyl. If you are after this. head to Discogs and you may find a copy […]
Ooohh.. And here it is. First Necro Deathmort release on vinyl (as far as I know..). Very frightening record and surprise, I love this. Hope that Distraction Records would release earlier records of Necro Deathmort as well on vinyl. And how could I describe this record? Dark-Ambien-Electro-Experimental..You may have to experience this on your own. Limited to 333 copies on black vinyl and available from Distraction Records. Run, run and get your copy while you can. Recommended!
And this I picked up from Post office today. Collaboration with Nadja and Japanese Vampillia, released by mighty Important Records. Nice record and “must have” all fans of Nadja. This is limited to 500 copies (first 100 copies on red and rest on black vinyl). Available from the source, Important Records. Here’s something you can expect from this album:
I have to admit that this band is “new” to me. Yeah, I just have not had a time to get familiar with their music, until now. Bought this from Important Records (have been purchasing lots of records from them lately). Important has black, blue and white versions available if someone is interested. Lovely record indeed.
Now I have to say that if you want to listen something frightening, this record is one we are talking about. I bought this without listening and what I got? Shivers. Obscure sounds, clicks.. and somehow, some strange way, I like this one. Some may find this disturbing, I find this interesting and beautiful in it’s own twisted way. Available from Important Records and first 100 copies comes on clear vinyl.
Finally I got this one, missed this when it was released (by Blood Music) but now I hold this on my tiny, hairy hands. Love this album so much, even though I’m not a fan of Emperor. This was limited to 300 copies (100 copies on black and 200 copies on white vinyl). Sold out long long time ago. You might find this from Discogs/Ebay but be ready to pay great pile of coins if you would like to have […]
Yes! This finally came today and I’m quite happy about it. I just loved “Badlands” album and this also sounds amazing, beautiful lo-fi garage rock record. Do not know if white vinyl version is still available but you can purchase this album for example from Boomkat.
I listened this a lot last week, a lot. Outstanding record in my opinion. Two powerful tunes and I lost my heart (once again). Perfect music for your headphones if your heart is open for avangardish doom metal. My copy of this album is black but there are some limited number of red, clear and white copies floating around. Recommended, with all my heart. I got my copy from Plastic Head.
This awesome album also came today. Been fan of this band since their debut album “The Tunnels”. And this album does not make exception. One word, Amazing. This is Phoenix risen from the ashes of late Breach. This is limited to 100 copies on clear and 400 copies on black vinyl. Clear one is sold out but there are black copies available from Apocaplexy Records. Recommended, highly.
Damn, this is so beautiful. I was wondering what this record was doing in my record rack, listened and remembered why. This is poetry like my previous post, Farewell Poetry. This one is limited to 200 copies and available from Low Point (£6!!!!), go and get this!
Wow! If you are into experimental music, I highly recommend you to purchase this one :) Even though this kind of drone-experimenta-noise might be too much for some, it also might be treasure for others. I like, nearly love this. This is limited to 300 copies on clear vinyl and there also CD included. Available from their own shop, here.
This underground artist from Finland has always amazed me. Love his little 7″ records and I have been trying to collect all his vinyl releases (missing few of those). I got this from my dear old friend. Availability depends on Discogs/Ebay nowadays. I couldn’t find any clips from this release but here’s something to show you the way :)
This is a result of collaboration between Alicia Merz (aka. Birds Of Passage) and Leonardo Rosado, Cannot be that bad at alla! This record is limited to 100 copies on clear vinyl with red splatters and 200 copies on clear vinyl. Available from Denovali (clear one).
I know that this band has been “hot” for years now but I found this just few years ago. For me these ethereal drone tunes are like gifts from heaven. Headphones on, closed eyes and I’m traveling there where time stands still.. excellent album. Re-pressed, so this is still available from ThrillJockey.
And this one was another record that came today. First time on vinyl, release by Blood Music. Limited to 300 copies, 100 on black and 200 on white vinyl and sold out from the label. Very interesting release from this Japanese black-avant-garde metal band :D
This fine record came today. This duo from Canada stole my heart with their “Union Of Irreconcilables” record. This is limited to 370 copies and 177 of those are red/black swirl. Bought this from Blue Collar Distro and seems that they still have this colored version if anyone is interested.
Suddenly I found this from random record store on my way to see my mom. I thought that I’ll order this from US but shipping cost were too high and now I paid only 21 euros of this absolutely astonishing album. Singer wears cuckoo clock as mask, that cannot be bad thing :) Excellent album. CD was released 2009 and the vinyl saw light at 2011. There is 1000 copies floating around, so there might be one for you too.
Horseback, oh Horseback.. my favourite band no doubt about that. This is “Black Shadow” version, 150 pressed and there’s also 350 copies of “White Mist”. White one is still available from Brutal Panda Records. Black one available at horseback.storenvy.com/
Had to put this one here even though I do not have this yet (now I got this). I ordered this and I don’t even have cassette player anymore but the box was so beautiful. And I have his “Atwater” record, so I know what I have ordered. Very nice gentleman and breathtakingly touching music. This can be ordered through his Bandcamp page and I suggest you to do so.
Limited to 108 copies on clear and 428 copies on black vinyl. Once there was band called Breach, excellent swedish post-something band. Now there’s Terra Tenebrosa. Cheers to Sweden! How come I like these swedish bands so much? ..Entombed, Nine, Cult of Luna, Breach, Terra Tenebrosa..
