Brunt: Ataraxy LP (cream/green)


Sometimes it’s just good to sit down and let the sound waves take you somewhere far away .. Brunt succeeds in this with his latest album perfectly. Ataraxy operates somewhere between post-rocking stoner / desert / doomed Instrumental. Missed this album when it was announced by Magic Mustache Records but managed to grab this copy afterwards. Awesome beauty and available via BandCamp.

Spurv: Myra LP (black/grey merge)


Been a while since I have been listening post-rock at all but this new one from Spurv made me remember how awesome music instrumental post-rock can be at it’s best. This norwegian group is a great example of that. Bought their debut, Skarntyde, few years ago and that record had a serious time under the needle. This new one continues where that debut ended. This is music for those late autumn mornings when afternoon frost is trying to escape from the rays of the rising sun. Beautiful record. Get your hands on this via BandCamp.

Dead Sea Apes: Recondite 2xLP

dead sea apes

Dead Sea Apes.. I fell in love with their psych/drone inspired post-rocking instrumental music since I heard their collaboration album with Black Tempest called “The Sun Behind The Sun” five years ago. Oh, I think that I have all their vinyl releases so I can be called a fan or something. This double album is some kind of compilation but that didn’t stop me purchasing it (even though I’m not that big fan of compilations). I recommend this group if you need a place to escape from this hectic realm, these soundscapes will take you away.. at least for moment. Limited to 300 copies and seems that this is quite hard to find item at this moment. Surely you can grab a copy via Discogs..


Thisquietarmy: Democracy Of Dust LP (blue) + CD


I don’t even remember how many releases from Thisquitarmy I already have but this here is the newest one. Actually, just checked out that I have eleven recordings from this post-rocking drone master. I just can’t explain what is that thing I love the most when listening to this record, is it those soundscapes and all those emotions hiding behind these droned tunesm who knows. Thanks to Eric, your music has made my days easier to walk trough. This new one was released few months ago and I purchased this colored copy with CD immediately as it was available. Colored ones are gone by now (with limitation of 100 copies) but what stops you to grab this on black vinyl (this version also comes with CD) ? So get yours straight from the artist or from the label, Mirida Records.




Paleons: Hyperborean LP


I have been waiting this one like waiting for the moon to rise. Preordered this months ago and finally it arrived today. I’ve been listening this album a lot within last few months (MP3 files I got when I ordered physical copy) and have to say I’m very pleased. Instrumental psych-kraut-prog-space-stoner.. quite hard to label this band so maybe you should check this out by yourself. I love this, you don’t have to. Limited o 300 copies on black wax and available from their BandCamp site. Recommended!


El Altar Del Holocausto: – S H ∃ – LP (splattered)

el altar gel holocausto

Got this post-rocking instrumental album from Throne Records few weeks ago, and have to admit that my soul is resting while listening these tunes. There was this time period while I listened mostly instrumental post-rock like If These Trees Could Talk, Toundra, Explosions In The Sky, Mono etc. Great bands but too much is just too much. Nowadays I use to listen bands from this genre time to time and this album by El Altar Del Holocausto sounded way too good to miss. This splattered, numbered version is limited to 75 copies and as you can already guess, it’s sold out. But don’t worry (if you are on this kind of music), there’s still regular version available from the source, Throne Records (and the prize ain’t bad at all, 13€ + shipping).


Sólstafir: Berdreyminn 2xLP (white + art print)


There’s always room for another Sólstafir album on my record shelf. Ordered this one from Season of Mist some time ago and it came on white vinyl with some art print (this version is limited to 100 copies). Thing I like the most when talking about this band is those vocals, there’s so much emotion there even though I don’t have a slightest idea what these songs are about. Anyways, once again brilliant album from this Icelandic group. Available on various vinyl colors & sets and even this version is still available from the source, Season of Mist.


Worm Ouroboros: What Graceless Dawn 2xLP (black/gold mix)


Actually this came already weeks ago, just haven’t had time to get more familiar with this album but now I’m working for it. Really love their previous album, Come To Thaw, and as this new one is now playing on my headphones I think that I have to share that love between these two albums. This is some kind of mixture of doomed neofolk with some post rock in it but the mostly, this is music filled with sadness.. Great album from this trio, once again. This color variation is limited to 100 copies (there are other color variations also available) and still available from the source, Profound Lore.


Harakiri For The Sky: s/t LP


If I have to describe music Harakiri For The Sky is performing, I would say that it’s melodic, post-rocking blackened metal. But because I don’t have to do so, I just concentrate on listening to it. Few weeks ago I was checking out some local metal bands on their gig and there was this record vendor with hundreds of records.. Of course I had to check out his crates. Hundreds of black metal records from bands I have never ever heard of and then I found this. Harakiri For The Sky’s latest one is on my “wantlist” but now I had a chance to purchase their debut in pristine condition. First press is limited to 500 copies (400 on black & 100 on grey vinyl) and there’s also second pressing on grey splattered vinyl and that is available from example from Ván Records.

Mouse On The Keys: Out of Body 12″ (black)


I was introduced to this group years ago by Denovali Records. This is latest release by this awesome japanese post-rock/contemporary jazz band. It’s quite refreshing to place records like this one on your turntable and let yourself slip away.. This twelve-inch was released by Topshelf Records and limited to 1000 copies (150 copies on black, 350 on clear and 500 on white vinyl) and is available from the same source, Topshelf (clear & white copies, black is sold out..). Beautiful release, once again.

Neurosis: Enemy Of The Sun 2xLP, Souls At Zero 2xLP & Through Silver In Blood 2xLP


These I bought for myself as a christmas present. As you can see all three albums are represses, I can’t afford to buy original copies (surprise). I have this difficult relationship with Neuosis just because there’s one album above all (in my opinion) and that’s “The Eye Of Every Storm”. Yeah, I have purchased all their albums after that release but this particular album is a sort of cornerstone, or something, to me. Well,  now it’s time (at last) to get little more familiar with their previous albums and I think that this will be very rewarding journey. I’m a bit ashamed that I haven’t done this earlier but better late than never, I guess.

Mono: Requiem For Hell 2XLP (gold/silver in ultra clear)


Haaaa.. new album from one of the best Post rock bands there is, Mono. I lost my heart to this group when I heard their album “Hymn To The Immortal Win” (2009) and the song “Follow The Map”. I got this one earlier this week and listened it only once (it’s a shame that I have to work during weekdays..) but I truly love every note I heard. Obviously this album will have plenty of playing time. This colorway is limited to 250 copies and there is also this “sunburst” version limited also to 250 copies (both of these are released by Pelagic Records and both are sold out). Pelagic still has gold/silver version (limited to 500 copies) and regular black available on their store. Those who live in states can purchase pale gold/silver version (ltd. 1000) from Temporary Residence.


Neurosis: Fires Within Fires LP (bloody clear)


Neurosis is Neurosis, what else there is to say. I have listened this few times now and I like this a lot, but this one needs time like every album Neurosis has ever put out. My friendship with this band started with their awesome “The Eye Of Every Storm” album, and I still find it best Neurosis record ever. I just have to give this new one some space and I know that in the end we are still close friends. This color variation, UK exclusive, is limited to 610 copies and seems that Norman Records is still selling it..


Subrosa: For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages 2xLP (cream with black splatter)


Even though this wasn’t my day (you can check out from facebook why..) I’m still available to smile just because of this record. This is my first album by Subrosa (somehow I have managed to miss all previous ones.. can’t explain why) and even though I knew the release date and the time when this was available for pre-order, I still missed the most limited color variation. Okey, I tried to order a copy using my phone but couldn’t remember my PayPal password (changed it few days earlier) and the moment I got it right all those color mix versions were gone, just my luck. I’m starting to realize (finally) that the music is what matters, not the color of the vinyl ;D

I have listened this one trough couple of times now and come to the conclusion that I have to hunt down those previous releases too (luckily few previous ones have been reissued lately). As you can see I’ve been purchasing more and more reissues lately and the reason is simple, I can’t afford those Discogs/Ebay prizes anymore, few can.

Beautiful record this certainly is, and hey there are still regular black copies & clear (limited to 700 pieces) available for US, EU & ROTW customers via Profound Lore’s Merchtable store. Canadian customers are privileged to order this “cream with black splatter” variant via Profound’s official store though..


Circle: Pori 2xLP (clear)


Funny that I have forgotten this band totally. I loved their debut album (bought it when it was released in 1994) but somehow I have managed to skip most of their records during these years.. Anyways, this 5th album of Circle (Finnish psychedelic/kraut rock band) has been pressed on vinyl first time (150 copies on clear and 350 copies on black vinyl) and available from Ektro Records (but remember, shipping cost from Finland are enormous). But you can also purchase regular black copy for example from Norman Records. Great band and now I just have to go after their other albums.. damn!


Tempel: The Moon Lit Our Path 2xLP (clear)


Today I just realised that I haven’t mentioned this crushing instrume(n)tal album I got months ago. This is Tempel’s second album called “The Moon Lit Our Path” and well, it’s better than their previous, debut album “On The Steps Of The Temple” which was/is excellent instrumental metal album. Amazing duo showing amazing talent. If you like your metal without vocals and if you like metal music (seasoned with some post-rock vibe) overall, I suggest you to check this out. Two colorways available, clear (limited to 200 copies) and regular black. I’m quite surprise that both versions are still available for example from band’s BandCamp site and from Prosthetic Records. Recommended, highly.

This Patch Of Sky: S/T 2xLP

this patch of sky

Sometimes we all need some post rocking tunes in our world. This Patch of Sky and their self titled album finally arrived, for your information I ordered this beautiful instrumental album 28th of September 2014. Anyways, it’s here and this dude behind the screen is very happy. Everyone of us knows that the term “post-rock” is a very difficult to describe.. you just can’t ignore the fact that some of us hates bands like This Patch of Sky, others love it. I’m a lover, big time. This brilliant album is limited to 100 copies with silkscreened cover, handwritten band name and track titles. I have no idea is there any copies floating around anywhere but if you ever come across with this record, do not hesitate purchasing it. Beauty.

Halma: Granular LP (clear/black marbled)


This post-rocking, smooth slow-core album arrived few weeks ago. Freaking beautiful record this is and now I have to admit (once again) that I had never ever heard of this band before until I came across this record on BandCamp. After listening only few minutes I had to purchase the album, surprise! Atmosphere on this album is hypnotic, magical. And hey, this is their sixth record… and I can recommended! And thanks to record label for understanding. Limited to 300 copies (clear/black marbled limited to 100 copies and rest 200 copies are on black vinyl). Available from Kapitän Platte.


Spurv: Skarntyde LP


Oh, what a pleasant day.. It has been nearly two and half weeks since I have received any record but today this miracle happened (in form of three LP’s and one double seven-inch) . This one is Spurv’s debut album “Skarntyde” and I have been listening this a lot lately (digital copy of the album). Last few weeks have been very hard for me (more about that lately) and this album has brought some sparks of light to these darkened days. This is just what I love about instrumental post-rocking melodies, beautiful & longing tunes. Great album indeed, reminds me a lot of that certain japanese band.. and that’s a compliment. Still available via their BandCamp page and I can’t do nothing but recommend this one!
